IU advances to third round of WNIT By Murphy Wheeler jonmwhee@iu.edu | @murph_wheelerIU

It all started with a free throw from senior guard Tyra Buss. But it was senior forward Amanda Cahill’s 3-pointer shortly after that changed everything for the IU women’s basketball team in their game against Milwaukee at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall on Sunday. Although Buss’ made free throw with six minutes to go in the second quarter began what would be a 17-0 for the Hoosiers, it was when Buss found Cahill for an open three on the next possession, that truly sparked a burst of energy from IU and the Hoosier crowd. It proved to be the momentum swing the Hoosiers needed to pull away from the Panthers and move on to the third round of the WNIT with a 74-54 victory. “Anytime Amanda or Tyra can get us going with threes, it’s like a shot in the arm for us,” IU Coach Teri Moren said. “It helped us feel like we could gain some control because up to that

point, it just felt like we were going back-and-forth.” IU couldn’t quite distance themselves from Milwaukee early on. In the first quarter, IU escaped with a narrow one-point lead as the Panthers defense forced the Hoosiers into six turnovers in the quarter. In the second quarter, the Hoosiers finally took control. Cahill’s three began a hot streak that featured numerous easy buckets down low from junior forward Kym Royster and freshman center Linsey Marchese, as well as Buss scoring 11 of her 17 points. Not only did the three spark a 17-0 run, but IU also managed to outscore Milwaukee 20-3 in the final six minutes before halftime to give them a commanding 42-24 lead heading into the locker room. While IU flourished offensively during that span, it was ultimately its defense that proved to be even more effective. Milwaukee shot just 25 percent from the field in the second quarter while also turning it over nine times.

“I think we saw it was getting close and we said we have to get going here,” Buss said. “Our defense is what translates to our offense so we had to lock down defensively. I think that got us really fired up. Whenever we start doing that defensively, it really helps us

get going offensively as well.” IU did so without two of their best defenders in freshmen guards Jaelynn Penn and Bendu Yeaney who both went to the bench with three early fouls. Freshman guard Keyanna Warthen and sophomore forward Bre Wickware came off the

bench to give their team some much-needed energy on the defensive end. “I have to give our bench some credit, I thought they did a tremendous job,” Moren said. “We probably weren’t as efficient on the offensive end but I thought they came in and gave us some great minutes defensively.” It was more of the same for IU in the third quarter as the Hoosiers were able to extend their lead to 63-39 behind eight points from Penn and seven from Cahill. The Hoosiers managed to easily close out the game in the fourth quarter. Their defense continued to be dominant all day, forcing Milwaukee into 16-50 shooting from the field and 24 total turnovers on 17 IU steals. Buss had seven steals of her own while Penn

A 53-year-old man crashed into the Sample Gates on Thursday evening while driving with a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit, IU Police Department Capt. Craig Munroe said. IUPD officers estimated the driver, David Aldridge, caused about $10,000 to $25,000 in damage to the Sample Gates, the truck he was driving and other surrounding property. Munroe said an IU custodian suffered minor injuries after stepping out in front of the truck in an attempt to stop it. It is unclear whether the custodian was taken to the hospital. Aldridge turned right at the intersection of East Kirkwood Avenue and South Indiana Avenue, Munroe said, leading him up onto the pedestrian walkway and through the main arch of the Sample Gates. Aldridge then attempted to drive through the smaller, northern arch of the gates, but his truck could not clear the arch. He also tried to drive through the gates’ small southern arch. He then drove through Dunn’s Woods before heading to the north side of Franklin Hall. A bystander told IUPD officers they thought the truck hit a tree while in the woods. The truck took out a handrail as it traveled down an embankment leading Aldridge to the loading dock area behind Franklin Hall, Munroe said. IUPD officers stopped Alridge at South Indiana Avenue and 17th Street. He was booked into the Monroe County Correctional Center on Thursday. Caroline Anders

Local Bloomington band Nice Try is set to play at 8:30 p.m. March 19 at the Blockhouse Bar. The band will also play at the Culture Shock Music Festival in April. The outdoor music festival will take place on IU’s campus in Dunn Meadow. Guitarist and vocalist Madeleine Robinson played at Culture Shock last year in the band Amy O and said she had a great time. “I appreciate that Culture Shock includes lots of local bands from the community,” Robinson said. Nice Try released the album “Convinced” in 2013, a self-titled tape in 2016 and two singles in early 2017. The band is set to release its self-titled debut album in late 2018. The latest album was produced at the recording studio Russian Recording by owner and producer Mike Bridavsky. “Their music is simple, clever and catchy with a rawness that is often lacking in music these days,” said Bridavsky. The new album is Nice Try’s first full-length album. Nice Try began with Justin Hatton of the band Bugg as the drummer, but Kahler Willits is the current drummer of the band. “Kahler is a great drummer and I trust his perspective,” said Robinson. “He has been with the band for the long haul.” Robinson said the band has a bassist, but not a consistent one, so its members are currently looking for for someone to fill the role permanently.

Nice Try, a local Bloomington rock band, will be playing Monday at the Blockhouse Bar. The band will also be playing at the Culture Shock Music Festival.

Nice Try recently completed a tour with the band Frankie Cosmos. “I felt like everything in my life was leading up to that tour for so long,” Robinson said. “I wish I was still on that tour. I would do it forever.” In 2012, Robinson moved to Bloomington and formed the band Nice Try. Robinson said she wanted to start a band because she listened to more bands than solo artists. She also said she was tired of being perceived a certain way because of being a solo female artist. “It felt like being in a band made people look at me differ-

ently,” Robinson said. “It was an exciting new territory to be loud. I had never done that.” Robinson said before Nice Try she played heartfelt songs on the ukulele for her solo project, Madeline Ava. Robinson said lots of the feedback she received about the Madeline Ava project started with comments about her aesthetic and appearance rather than the songs she was playing. “Every flier said ‘cute songs from a cute girl,’” Robinson said. Robinson said she’s not mad at being called cute but didn’t like it coming up every performance. Robinson started playing and

recording music as a junior in high school in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 2007. The first song she wrote was for a high school poetry assignment, Robinson said. “I didn’t play an instrument behind it,” Robinson said. “I just had a shaker and a melody. I recorded it on my computer.” Robinson said she then started to play ukulele and sing under the name Madeline Ava. Robinson also began recording more songs on her laptop. “It was as low quality as it gets, but I took pride in it,” Robinson

IU students looking to try new foods are in luck. Residential Programs and Services is increasing its healthy food options for National Nutrition Month through free samples at all dining locations, a plant-based takeover at Goodbody Eatery and a farmers market at the Indiana Memorial Union, according to Rachel Noirot, a registered dietitian for RPS Dining Services. “We just want to have students try new things,” Noirot said. “We don’t want students to get bored.” Originally established as National Nutrition Week in 1973, the observance expanded to the entire month of March in 1980 as nutrition became increasingly popular with the public. Dining Services is sampling new foods every Wednesday through March. This Wednesday’s dishes include a vegetable vindaloo at the Bookmarket Eatery, lemon herb quinoa salad, and pistachio and apricot couscous. Noirot said some of these recipes are items RPS has previously sold but wants to highlight, while others are IU chefs’ new creations. Junior Claire Burdette, an intern for the IU Office of Sustainability who worked closely with Dining Services on the nutrition month agenda, said the samples might encourage students to purchase healthy foods they SEE RPS, PAGE 5

The man in black

NOBLE GUYON | IDS

Funeral director Cory Graham, 27, takes a moment to sit down and rub his eyes after preaching at a funeral service at Stuart Mortuary in Indianapolis on Saturday. This funeral was Graham’s second and last of the day after being up until 4:30 a.m. performing house calls the night before.

Cory Graham grew up surrounded by death. Now, as a funeral director during the most violent time in Indianapolis’ history, he works with death for a living. By Jack Evans jackevan@indiana.edu | @JackHEvans

INDIANAPOLIS — The undertaker would not watch the local news anymore. He hated how the broadcasters talked of nothing but death. He hated each mention of the city’s rising homicide toll and how the anchors seemed excited about the city setting a new record in blood. He hated how a news item could reduce a victim to a cause of death: the number of bullets torn into them, the place their body fell. Most of the victims were men, like the undertaker, and young and black, like the undertaker. Some of them were friends, people he’d grown up with. He knew they had emotions, motivations, lives too complex to fit in a news brief. Often he looked down at a victim, laid out in a casket, wounds concealed by makeup or strategically arranged clothing, and had the same thought. That could be me. *

*

*

Sometimes the call comes on a holiday, on a weekend, in the middle of the night. Cory Graham has woken at 3 a.m. to retrieve a body more times than he can recall. Sometimes it takes him through restricted access doors into chilly morgues, where he finds boys and men with bodies cool and shrouded and broken by bullets. Graham works at Stuart Mortuary, a family-owned institution just north of downtown. A painting of thorncrowned Christ hangs by the front door. The mortuary’s slogan: “‘Open to Serve’ since 1948.” As a teenager considering the funeral business, Graham shadowed undertakers at Stuart. His family entrusted so many loved ones to the mortuary that as a child, he

thought it was the only funeral home in the world. In recent years, as homicides in Indianapolis have surged, many victims have come into Stuart’s care. The killings — 149 in 2016, 154 in 2017, most of them shootings — have rocked neighborhoods across the city and around the funeral home. There was Phyllis Anderson, 65, shot in her east-side apartment, her granddaughter arrested. There were Daquan Proctor, 23, and Jonte Williams, 18, both killed in a double-shooting after an argument with a third man. There was Jason McNeal, 25, who police found shot in a parked car on the far east side, and Matthew McGee, 13, who died outside a Long John Silver’s while 10 other kids watched. All this, in just 30 days last fall. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett declared the city to be in the midst of a public safety crisis at the end of 2015, but nothing has stopped the carnage. In 2017, one person died in the city in a homicide, on average, about every two and a half days. Community leaders and residents have struggled to pinpoint the causes. Ralph Lemmon, a local police chaplain for two decades, sees arguments settled with guns where fistfights would have once done the job. James Dixon, a funeral home owner on the west side, sees Old Testament sin — envy, greed, wrath — combined with modern weaponry. Any given shooter a Cain, any victim an Abel. “Nothing has changed,” Dixon says. Amid the turmoil, Stuart Mortuary stands as a rock. Like the church, a funeral home provides constancy, a place to confront death in the strength of numbers, to

mourn and celebrate life, to accept inevitability and to reject the bleakness of the void. Graham’s demeanor suits the job. He has the gentle, knowing smile of a Sundayschool teacher. In the stillness of the mortuary, he seems to always speak at the exact right volume. Though he’s a young man, just 27, he has a well-honed intuition when it comes to helping people grieve and mourn. He knows when to laugh, when to lower his voice, when to offer prayer. And sometimes, he says, he sees death in advance.

Often he looked down at a victim, laid out in a casket, wounds concealed by makeup or strategically arranged clothing, and had the same thought. That could be me. Weeks before his grandmother died, he saw her slip away in a dream, then predicted, almost to the minute, the time she'd die. He had a troubled friend on his mind all one day, then heard of his death the next. He ran into another friend on the street and saw a darkness over him. Six hours later and seven blocks down, the man died. He took the premonitions as signs from God. “I wouldn’t call it a sixth sense,” Graham’s mother, Debra, says. “I would call it an anointing.” From childhood on, Graham seemed destined to wind up as an undertaker. As a boy, he watched, intrigued, as funeral processions passed. He presided over funeral services for his mother’s goldfish and

neighbors’ cats. He understands death as a part of life. He sees it as his chance to help people in need — the despondent, the confused, the angry. But the killings are something else. The victims seem to get younger and younger. And he has known so many of them. More than a dozen. He’s lost count. Every time he sees a young victim, he takes stock of his fortune — that he gets to be the one outside the casket, that he’s still able to use his experiences with death to help others. “I don’t want to say I had the luck of the draw,” he says. “But I had this opportunity, and I took it.” *

When Debra Graham saw her infant son, she thought he would die. Cory stopped breathing as doctors pulled him from the womb. They diagnosed him with a breathing disorder and told Debra he had a slim chance of survival. Then the doctors suggested a last-ditch option, a then-new treatment called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, in which an artificial heart-lung machine would keep him alive. But at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, when Debra looked down and saw the tubes coming from Cory’s head and neck, she felt more despair than hope. “Do you think he’ll die?” she asked her sister. “Let’s pray on it,” her sister said. As he grew, he tagged along when his grandparents went to Stuart to make funeral arrangements for his aunts and uncles. He grew fond of the services, curious about the work of the funeral home employees, these people who

got to close the caskets. When friends went to funerals, he offered to go with them. At the cemetery, he would walk up to the fresh grave and stare down into the earth. His mother didn’t imagine him becoming a mortician, but she noticed his grace around death, his knack for helping others grieve. “Even though I don’t believe he quite, as a child, understood it, he still had that compassion," she says. "He prayed a lot." His maturity also showed in his friendships with older boys and young men who took him under their wings. There was Justin, seven years older, who took on Cory in pickup basketball and Donkey Kong on Super Nintendo. Later, there was Doc, nine years older, who coached Cory through his first real heartbreak. He told him the pain would only make him stronger. As Cory grew, he saw death in many of its cloaks. It swelled in tumors in his granny’s belly and head, felled an uncle with a brain aneurysm. It chased the bullets that tore into friends and acquaintances and family members. When Cory was 12, Justin was shot and killed. Cory was too young to know the context of the murder, only that someone went to jail and that Justin had been “set up.” At Justin’s funeral, a minister urged the young man's friends to point their lives in the right direction. Maybe they could meet their friend in the afterlife. By the time Cory got to Broad Ripple High School, some of his peers were fighting, stealing or getting into drugs. Some were his friends or mentors. So much of the SEE GRAHAM, PAGE 3

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 crime seemed to stem from boredom, a lack of direction. His geography teacher, Ms. Chandler, cared about these kids. She gave them rides home. She let them sleep at her house when they needed somewhere to stay. Then one day she showed up in one of Cory's dreams of death. When he recounted the dream to her, she tried to reassure him. “Death means the end of something,” she said. Maybe her career had reached an end. Maybe it was time to retire. Then Ms. Chandler got sick, and he visited her in the hospital, saw her with one leg missing. Two months later, another teacher called. “She stopped breathing, but she’s OK,” she said. “We’re waiting for you.” But by the time he reached the hospital, she was gone. In the eulogy he delivered at her funeral, Cory talked about how she helped even the unruliest kids, how she acted like a mom to the ones who didn’t get love at home. Afterward, a funeral director approached him. He’d been impressed with Cory’s effort to memorialize his teacher. Maybe, the man suggested, Cory should consider his line of work. Some family and friends found it strange when he decided to go to mortuary school. Debra didn’t believe Cory would make it through the program — could he really handle embalming those bodies? But Graham says the bodies never made his stomach turn — he was awed by the funerary process. When Debra saw him, clad in allblack cap and gown, walk across a stage in a Louisville church to get his diploma, she knew he’d made the right choice. “There’s more to him than even I know,” she says. Graham became an undertaker just as violence in Indianapolis surged. The year he graduated mortuary school, 2012, the city recorded 101 criminal homicides. Since then, the number has risen every year. Other job opportunities and career paths have nagged at him from time to time. He’s entertained a move into politics — he could see himself as mayor someday. Last fall, he was offered a job at a Chicago funeral home and weighed the idea of a change. But he believes God put him in this time and place for a reason, so he stays. He still lives in the 120-year-old white-and-brick house he grew up in, a place that’s been in his family for more than 60 years. The number of residents has always been fluid — he lives there with his mom and grandfather and a rotating group of cousins and friends and neighbors. At least as long as he’s been alive, it’s been a safe place for anyone who needed it. Most nights, after work, he returns to the house and sits in front of the television. “Walker, Texas Ranger” has been one of his favorite shows since childhood. He loves its stories of justice, especially his favorite episode, the one from season four where a homeless

man’s dog helps Walker track down violent criminals. It’s titled “Lucky.” In Graham’s bedroom is a dresser with an attached mirror, and taped to the mirror is a collage of more than 100 obituaries, the kind handed out as pamphlets at funerals. They memorialize friends, family members, coworkers — people who, for one reason or another, were special to him. He has collected them for as long as he can remember. Mornings before work, he rises and pulls a black K&G suit from his closet. If a family is wearing a loved one’s favorite color to a funeral, he picks a tie of that color. He looks in the mirror to tie it and sees the obituaries. He tells himself: “This is why I do what I do.” *

*

*

Even after he became a funeral director, death still found ways to surprise him. One rainy day in 2015, he sat in his office preparing an obituary. His phone rang. He heard an uncle’s voice on the other end. “Doc is gone,” his uncle said. “What do you mean?” “He’s not with us no more. He was killed today.” Graham sank to his knees. This is a joke, he thought. He rushed to his car, drove to an intersection near the Children’s Museum. Orange-brown leaves clung to the rain-soaked road. Police cruiser lights reflected in puddles. This is a joke. How could this man, who taught him how to handle life like a man, be dead in the street? Graham pushed through a crowd, toward a ribbon of yellow police tape. This is real. Pressed against the police line, Graham thought of the last time he saw Doc. They’d gone to a bachelor party. At some point in the night, Doc had said something that stuck in Graham’s brain. “Forget all the negative things and focus on the positives you have,” Doc had told him. “You woke up this morning. That’s a positive thing.” By the end of 2015, Indianapolis had recorded 144 criminal homicides. Doc’s death was one of them. Doc’s family made arrangements with another mortuary. Graham didn’t arrange his friend’s funeral, didn’t hide the bullet holes to make him presentable for the casket. He let other funeral directors comfort him. For once, he let the emotions of a funeral overtake him. Standing over Doc’s casket, he looked down and told him he loved him, thanked him for his friendship. Doc wore jeans and a T-shirt, the same simple outfit he wore every day. He would’ve liked how he looked, Graham thought. His mind returned again to his last conversation with Doc. “You woke up this morning…” He didn’t think Doc knew his end was near, didn’t think it was anything more than a coincidence. But maybe it was something Graham needed to hear. * What

Top Cory Graham, center, talks with funeral attendees after a funeral service at Temple of Praise Assembly in Indianapolis. Graham said that directing funerals outside of Stuart can be more difficult at times, as the director has less control over the environment. Left Tim Burnett vacuums the floor before the start of another funeral at Stuart Mortuary. The staff members at Stuart go to work immediately after a funeral is over, prepping the chapel for the next service, which often is within an hour. Right Graham sits outside a Cracker Barrel in Indianapolis discussing his favorite sports teams after attending church on Nov. 12, 2017. The Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Colts are Graham’s favorite teams to watch. Because he works so much, Graham doesn’t always get to watch the games.

Stuart Mortuary is summoned for service is always the same and always different. Mortuary employees plan for logistics: If the body is in a house, is it upstairs? How is it positioned? How big or heavy is it? Will they need extra hands or equipment? They clean and embalm the body. They dress it, do hair and makeup. For a homicide victim, they might add a layer of clothing or button an extra shirt button to hide an injury, might search for the perfect makeup blend to help conceal a wound. They call it restorative work. They cannot revive the dead, but they can offer something that imitates life. The hands-on work has always bothered Graham more than the rest of the job. Old women make him think of his granny. Homicide victims make him think of lost friends, like Justin and Doc. He considers himself good at keeping his personal life out of his day-to-day work, at putting others’ needs first. But these moments of collision between the present and past unsettle him. For every funeral, the core of his job remains the same: Make sure everything runs smoothly. Give out hugs and handshakes. Get the casket from the funeral home to the church or chapel, then to its final destination. Get to the cemetery on time, or the family could incur a late fee. It is in the services

themselves where the details vary most, as they did in two Stuart Mortuary funerals one day in November. One casket held a young woman gunned down in her prime, the other an old woman taken by illness. For the first, hundreds of mourners, some in T-shirts bearing the victim’s nickname, packed a church, leaving latecomers to stand in the back. For the second, only a few people showed up, dotting the chairs in the mortuary’s small chapel, the one with a crooked painting of a ship coming into harbor, and the service ended with just 11 signatures on the guest registry. In one, a band played and preachers recited passages about walking through the valley of the shadow of death and a young artist delivered a poem so loaded with detail that even a stranger clenched his jaws against sobs. In the other, Graham himself gave the eulogy, cobbled together with whatever details he could glean, and the whole affair ended in 20 minutes. It isn't unusual for Graham to work several funerals in a day. The job feels busier now than ever before. *

Graham thinks he knows exactly what will happen to him when he dies. His soul will separate from his body and go off to some place of rest, a sort of heavenly

waiting room. Then someday that trumpet will blow and, as the Bible says, “the dead in Christ will rise first.” He goes to church at Christ Our Healer Ministries, as he has for the past 12 years. It’s the kind of church where a band stretches modern gospel songs to 20 minutes, where the pastor sweats through his shirt. Dapper women in pantsuits share pews with rough-handed men in crewneck sweatshirts.

The job feels busier now than ever before. One Sunday, he settled into a pew near the back 50 minutes into the service, just as the focus shifted from the guitar-organ-drums combo’s rocking catharsis to the pastor’s sermon on the inherent flaws of man: that people tend to serve themselves first, that they don’t consider consequences until they’re caught, that they depend on God to deliver salvation. “It is His goodness and His grace and His mercy that have kept me here!” the pastor declared, and Graham raised his hands and clapped in praise. “Look at your neighbor and say, ‘I’ve been a mess!’” the pastor ordered. “I’ve been a mess!” As the pastor cited scripture, Graham followed along

on an app on his phone. The pastor came to Romans 13:11: … our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Graham believed he had already found his. He could have been in the ground, like so many in his city. But his faith, his family, his job — they had combined to form a path that could carry him safely through the shadow of death. “Look at your neighbor, and say, ‘I’m saved!’” Graham turned to the person next to him and grinned: “I’m saved!” When the rapture comes, Graham believes, those true believers will rise first. But he thinks any of those dead souls can get forgiveness up until the last minute. In his version of the afterlife, even the sinners have hope. *

*

When Graham leaves Stuart Mortuary at the end of the day, he climbs into the front seat of his black Kia, and time stops. In the silence he talks to God. Sometimes he speaks out loud, and sometimes he hears God talk back. Outside, sirens sound through the streets. A lifetime in the city has taught him to tune them out, to not wonder where they’re going. He might sit there for an hour or two, cherishing the only time he ever gets away from the living and the dead.

Steel tariffs hurt consumers

ILLUSTRATION BY MADELYN POWERS | IDS

In the name of protectionism, the United States government is antagonizing American consumers by imposing tariffs and quotas on foreign steel and aluminum. This ultimately hurts consumers by leading to higher costs for goods. After increasing the costs of renewable energy by approving duties on foreignmade solar equipment, President Trump imposed tariffs and quotas on foreign steel and aluminum. This action was done in the name of national security after an investigation by the U.S. Commerce Department, which concluded that importing steel could lead to less domestic production of steel. This could be critical in a war. However, while the underlying intentions may be good, the tariff 's effect

could unfortunately be greatly damaging. The announcement sparked a spate of tweets by the president, which weren’t only economically flawed but also illustrative of the president’s frail understanding of how global trade works. Trump tweeted, "When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good and easy to win. Example when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don't trade anymore we win big. It's easy!" By decreasing trade, it’s truly easy to win the trade war — the war against American consumers. Even $100 billion of bilateral trade deficit stimulates

billions of dollars of commercial activity supporting millions of domestic jobs in the U.S. and this trade deficit will be what is affected by the tariffs. “There are only at most 150,000 Americans earning a living full time in the steel industry, but more than 6 million work in industries that depend on steel, industries likes autos and construction that would be hurt badly by steel tariffs,” wrote Allan Golombek, senior director at White House Writer’s Group, for RealClearMarkets. Golombek rightly notes the number of jobs dependent on cheaply imported steel largely dwarfs the number of jobs in domestic steel manufacturing. Our economy’s biggest industries depend on the imported quantities of

steel. Price surges of steel and aluminum will ripple throughout the economy. Golombek further suggests job loss in the domestic steel manufacturing industry is due to development in technology rather than cheap imports. This is because fewer people are needed to do the same amount of work. Apart from the onslaught of criticism from economists, these tariffs have incited global backlash. These tariffs could lead to a potential retaliation from U.S. trade allies and other global players. The European Union threatened to impose similar tariffs on imports of Kentucky Bourbon, HarleyDavidson products and blue jeans. In response, President Trump indicated he might

slap tariffs on European cars. The most recent act from the EU puts hundreds more U.S. products, including orange juice, peanut butter and yachts, at risk of potential counter-tariffs. This can go on and on with consumers becoming the real victims of this unwarranted trade war. As depicted in a chart by Mark Perry, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan, government regulation usually drives up the prices of U.S. goods and services. The prices of goods and services under free-market forces have plummeted in the past couple of decades according to Perry's data. However, the prices of regulated counterparts have

risen during the same time. With the rise in prices of steel and aluminum, the prices of goods and services that are subjects to market forces will also escalate. Given the ubiquity of steel and aluminum, manufacturing the costs of everyday products from a can of beans to an iPhone will see price hikes, which will ultimately be paid for by us, the consumers. From all the evidence, the objective of this trade war seems elusive. Who does this benefit? The administration appears besotted by the apparent virtues of protectionism, but they should realize that imposing high metal tariffs will not save any jobs. Rather, it instead forces American consumers to pay higher prices for the same products.

COFFEE CHRONICLES

MATT-ER OF FACT

Let’s get cooking

Leadership changes at the CIA and state department are bad news

If there’s a constant question in everyone’s life, it is "what are you doing for dinner?" Whether it’s your mom checking up on you or your friends wanting to make plans, we all think about what we’re going to be eating. However, most students I know don’t cook often, if at all. These students and young people say they don't often cook for various reasons, from lacking time to disliking the act of cooking itself. IU should offer one-credit cooking classes in which students can learn the basics of cooking healthy meals. This would not only help students learn to grocery shop on a budget, but also teach basic skills about cooking. However, there should be a broad overview of the basics of cooking. This class would appeal to more people and show students the basic techniques they need to further their cooking skills in the future, or just be able to feed themselves when takeout becomes too expensive. There are already classes that focus on cooking. There is a Jewish cooking class that focuses on teaching traditional Jewish recipes. And these classes are great because they teach a niche set of cooking. Let’s talk numbers. The Economic Policy Institute found a single adult living

in the Indianapolis-Carmel metro area spends, on average, about $250 per month on groceries. If that same adult moved to a more expensive borough such as Manhattan in New York City, their monthly food cost would be around $300. At first glance, these numbers do not seem so high. However, the EPI based food costs off of the United States Department of Agriculture’s low-cost plan, which assumes the individual would primarily buy and prepare his or her own food. So, if someone plans to eat out more or buy prepared foods, then the cost of food can greatly increase. I think we all acknowledge that eating out is expensive. During the first weeks back from break, my bank account takes a huge hit from eating out every day. Thankfully, for the rest of the school year, I cook for myself and that has saved me so much money. I learned how to cook because I liked Tasty videos, and part of me still wants to be the vegetarian version of Julia Child. But if you don’t share that interest, then I think having a basic cooking class at IU would be beneficial. I’m not saying we all need to become the next Julia Child. But learning how to cook can make your daily life easier and save you money. And if someone could learn that skill while gaining college credit, IU would be preparing you for the future in more ways than one.

With all the personnel changes that have occurred throughout President Donald Trump’s administration, it’s hard to give each change the attention it’s due. The new changes at the CIA and the state department are especially deserving of a closer look. On Tuesday, President Trump fired Rex Tillerson from his position as secretary of state via Twitter. Simultaneously, Trump announced CIA Director Mike Pompeo would be replacing Tillerson, and Deputy CIA Director Gina Haspel will replace Pompeo. Trump tweeted, "Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his

service! Gina Haspel will become new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!" So who is Gina Haspel? Haspel is a career CIA agent who has spent much of her time at the agency undercover. The debate over Haspel’s nomination has changed tone since one of the main allegations against her — that she participated in the notorious torture of Abu Zubaydah — was retracted by ProPublica. But there’s no reason to rethink the whole debate. The fact remains that Gina Haspel did run a “black site” prison in Thailand — essentially, an overseas prison that’s kept secret so detainees can be afforded zero rights — and torture did occur under her watch. Haspel was also involved

in 2005 in the destruction of tapes of CIA waterboarding sessions. Why would any American support the nomination of someone who destroyed evidence of illegal actions by the government? Of course, Haspel isn’t necessarily worse than Pompeo, who refused to rule out waterboarding as a potential interrogation method during his senate confirmation process for the position of CIA director. Pompeo may be even more damaging as secretary of state. The former Kansas representative is known for viewing today’s foreign policy challenge as an epic clash between the Christian West and Islamic East. Pompeo told a church group in 2014 that a minority of Muslims “will continue to press against us until we

make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior and is truly the only solution for our world.” Pompeo has also called for whistleblower Edward Snowden to receive the death sentence. One of the main reasons Trump has cited for replacing Tillerson is that Trump and Tillerson disagreed over key issues such as the Iran nuclear agreement, while Pompeo tends to agree with the president. Tillerson’s relatively realistic outlook on Iran was one of his few saving graces. Pompeo, on the other hand, has said the U.S. should consider bombing all of Iran’s nuclear facilities, which would be an outrageous violation of international law and unthinkably dangerous.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Indiana legislative session officially ends By Laurel Demkovich lfdemkov@iu.edu | @LaurelDemkovich

Indiana lawmakers failed to meet their midnight deadline March 14 to follow through on potential legislation. Even after Gov. Eric Holcomb allowed a one-hour extension of the session until 1 a.m. the next day, legislators still could not reach a consensus on a few key bills. Here’s what passed and what didn’t in the last week of the session: CBD oil A bill that would legalize the possession and sale of CBD oil is headed to the governor’s desk. Senate Bill 52 passed through the House unanimously and through the Senate 36-11. However, some worry about the special labeling requirements for CBD bottles and how it could affect manufacturers. The final bill requires products to have a QR code that would show where the product was made and its

» NICE TRY

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 said. “ It was so accessible and I still felt like it was good.” Robinson said she was inspired by a community of musicians online who uploaded their own albums to a website called Cllct Music. Robinson said she started uploading songs there and recieved affirmation. “It was all super low-

contents. The bill requires CBD products to have no more than 0.3 percent THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. With so little THC, the product would not produce a high. In a Feb. 27 committee hearing, manufacturers expressed concerns for the marketing and labeling requirements. Josh Hendrix, director of business development at CV Sciences, Inc., spoke in favor of the bill. He said his company makes a number of different batches of CBD products. Having to create a QR code for each one could be difficult. “That really isn’t feasible for companies our size,” Hendrix said. The bill is supposed to clear up confusion from a bill passed last session, which legalized the use of CBD oil for treating seizure disorders, such as epilepsy. However, in November, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill Jr. said it was illegal to purchase the product in stores. Senate Bill 52 now awaits fi and I thought, ‘Yea, I can do that too,’” Robinson said. “Really, I thank the internet for all of my self-confidence in what I do now.” Robinson started playing guitar around the same time Nice Try started. The first songs that were recorded and released for Nice Try were the first band songs she ever wrote. “There’s been a lot of growth in this loud-music part of my career, “ Robinson said.

Gov. Holcomb’s signature. Handguns No handgun-related legislation made it out of the 2018 legislative session alive. Despite attempts last Wednesday to revive bills that had already died, lawmakers could not come to an agreement by the end of the session early Thursday morning. One bill would have extended the four-year handgun license to a five-year one and would have removed the lifetime permit fee. In a committee hearing for the bill, Democratic lawmakers worried that the bill would loosen gun restrictions. Just a week after a school shooter in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people, some worried about the implications of loosening restrictions in Indiana. “I don’t want to do anything at this point in time, given the state of our nation, to make our laws any easier to get a gun,” Sen. Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, said in the hearing. The bill died in the appropriations committee.

Another bill would have allowed guns to be carried on church properties, even if there was a school on the property. The bill was never heard in the House. DACA licensing recipients An amended House bill that passed last Wednesday would allow Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, young people who were brought to the United States as children by their parents, to pursue and receive professional licenses in Indiana. The amendment came after the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency started screening applicants who are not U.S. citizens or qualified immigrants who receive state benefits — including DACA recipients. The decision comes after a 2011 immigration law that requires agencies to verify a person’s citizenship before they can receive state benefits. The bill passed 85-7 in the House and 39-8 in the Senate and now heads to Gov. Holcomb’s desk for his signature.

Lucky’s Market is one of the few stores in Bloomington with CBD oil in stock. Stores pulled the oil from their shelves as far back as last year, but with the state Senate passing a bill to legalize the oil, places such as Bloomingfoods are looking to restock.

Sex education Parents now have two opportunities to opt their children out of sex education. If signed by Gov. Holcomb, Senate Bill 65 would require school corporations to send home a summary of materials related to the instruction of human sexuality. Parents could then choose whether or not to allow their children to receive the education. If the school does not re-

ceive a response the first time, it is required to send home the materials a second time. If the parents do not respond the second time, the material will be taught anyway. The bill originally read that parents must opt in for their children to receive instruction but was amended to include that if the parent did not respond, the student would be taught anyway. The bill now awaits Gov. Holcomb’s signature.

The message of her music changed a little bit when the band started because she said it felt more comfortable to express frustration in loud songs, Robinson said. “It is more natural to get out frustration with the band,” Robinson said. “I also tried not to lose too much of the straightforward, diary-like quality of my music because I think you see that less in rock music than in singer-songwriter music.”

sively for IU as well. Buss led the way with 17 points while also dishing out four assists and Penn scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Cahill and Yeaney added 12 points each while Royster had 10 points and a team-high nine rebounds. Cahill, consistent as usual, also contributed seven rebounds, six assists, two blocks and two steals on the day. The win advances IU to the third round of the WNIT on Thursday where

the Hoosiers will take on Purdue, who they have beaten twice this year. Moren said she thinks her team will have plenty of motivation as they try to achieve their ultimate goal of winning the entire tournament. “We’re obviously wellversed in Purdue,” Moren said. “I would like to think that amps us up but I think what does even more is being at home in front of our fans and having another opportunity to be together as a team.”

might not have otherwise known about. “If I see something and I don’t know what it’s like, I’m not as willing to spend my money on it,” Burdette said. She said she hopes to incorporate students’ favorite recipes from the sampling into the RPS menu system. Noirot noted edamame, a nutritious green bean sold in Wright Food Court’s salad bar, as a food students would likely overlook if they hadn’t previously tried it. “We want to have college students in general, whether they’re vegetarian or not, incorporate more produce into their diet,” Noirot said. Dining Services is organizing a farmers market from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. March 28 at the IMU where people can buy fresh, locally produced items. On Wednesday and Thursday this week, Forward Food, a culinary training organization associated with the Humane Society of the United States, is partnering with IU chefs to sell

international plant-based dishes at the Goodbody Eatery. Since the organization’s executive chef opened the first all-vegan dining hall at the University of North Texas in 2007, Forward Food chefs have worked with universities, amusement parks, military bases and healthcare operations around the world to help food service operators diversify their menus. Jennifer DiFrancesco, culinary specialist at the organization, said the recipes being featured this week were customized to suit IU’s vision for a plant-based takeover. Wednesday’s Latin American theme will present pulled “pork” tacos made with jackfruit, Mexican spiced cauliflower rice and “chicken” enchiladas made with a soy product. Thursday’s Thai theme will showcase a ginger and garlic noodle bowl and spicy red curry green beans. DiFrancesco taught a two-day nutrition workshop to chefs at Collins in October.

The training was coupled with student sampling and feedback surveys, one of which DiFrancisco saved for its A-plus rating written in bold. IU has since incorporated some of Forward Food’s dishes, including an edamame rice shaker salad and santa fe wrap, into its permanent offerings. “We’re seeing a lot of people wanting to incorporate more plant-based options for a variety of benefits,” DiFrancesco said. These benefits include chronic illness prevention, accommodations for allergies, environmental sustainability and animal welfare. By exploring new dishes from IU chefs, Noirot said students can explore ideas for when they begin cooking themselves. People can also access Forward Food’s website for a free, downloadable cookbook of plant-based recipes. “New foods can be scary,” Noirot said. “But the more foods and variety you have in your diet, the greater depth of nutrition you’ll have.”

SOFTBALL

Back and better Sophomore Josie Wood is healthy again after tearing her ACL in 2016. By Phillip Steinmetz psteinme@iu.edu | @PhillipHoosier

PHOTOS BY MATT BEGALA | IDS

Sophomore Josie Wood eyes down home plate as she prepares for the next pitch. Sunday’s home game against University of Illinois-Chicago was the final game in the Hoosier Classic.

S

trong was the reoccurring word when her teammates and coaches mentioned IU softball sophomore pitcher Josie Wood. “She’s pushing one of the most amounts of weights, she gets after it in there,” IU assistant and pitching coach Chanda Bell said. “It’s refreshing to have a pitcher that just gets after it not only in pitching but on the other side of the ball too.” Wood was one of two freshman pitchers IU relied on to handle a majority of the load for the 2016 season. She led IU with 39 appearances, 13 victories and seven complete games. Wood had a 13-9 record behind a 3.69 ERA and 116 strikeouts in 151.2 innings pitched. Her performance was an integral reason for the Hoosiers finishing the season with a winning record. Everything was looking up for Wood until a practice in September 2016 made everything come to a screeching halt. Wood was going through a routine running drill when she felt her knee give out. “You just kind of know when your body is telling you something,” Wood said. “I was in a lot of pain.” The injury itself was unusual. After staying off of her leg for a few days, Wood was able to start walking. She said didn’t know what the injury was, but she said she couldn’t imagine it being a devastating one. Her worst nightmare became a reality as she discovered she tore her ACL. “When I found out it was my ACL, something sparked me because I knew that I was going to be out this whole next year,” Wood said. “It kind of just motivated me to want to continue. Never once in my head did I feel like giving up.” To make the procedure easier, she went through the usual process of prehab before surgery to build muscle. Everything went to according to plan as she began rehab. To get her game back on track, she focused on balance, jumping and lateral movements to try to push off the mound further. She took this opportunity to learn more about the game and how she could be better once she received her next opportunity in the circle. Wood said the experience was good motivation. “Sitting out for a whole year put things into perspective, I just wanted to be back out there,” Wood said. Her main focus was cheering on her team as much as possible and being the best teammate she could be. She couldn’t do anything

Top Sophomore Josie Wood throws a pitch in the second inning Sunday, March 18. Wood pitched for 3.1 innings and struck out five batters from University of Illinois-Chicago en route to an 8-4 victory. Middle Following IU’s 8-4 win against University of Illinois-Chicago, sophomore Josie Wood, center, high fives with teammates. IU improved to 7-21 on the season. Bottom Freshman Maddie Westmoreland celebrates with the team after hitting a home run in the bottom of the third inning. IU scored five more runs after that to secure the victory Sunday.

but watch as her team took a step backward in 2017, finishing with a losing record of 23-31, including a 9-14 conference record. This past summer, Wood began to make more progress to returning that ACL to 100 percent. She was able to sprint and work off the mound. “It was kind of depressing honestly because you live and breathe for sports,” Wood said. “You wake up every day. You just have that passion, and when someone tells you that you can’t run that day, you can’t do this or that, it breaks your heart. But honestly, I think that’s what gave me motivation. It was encouraging to want to get back out there with my girls.” Going into fall ball, there were doubts running through her mind of whether something like this could happen again. Wood wasn’t so sure about herself to begin with, but once she settled in, she realized her ACL was stronger than ever. Officially a year removed from the injury, Wood continued where her freshman campaign left off. In a combined 11 innings of work through four games, she had 13 strikeouts after only giving up nine hits and one run. After the solid showing in the preseason, Wood started for the Hoosiers in the first official game of the 2018 campaign against Boise State as part of the Kajikawa Classic. But, she had a nightmare performance in her first real game back. In the first inning, Wood gave up a grand slam and allowed six runs on five hits in 2.1 innings pitched. “I think she exudes that confidence,” IU Coach Shonda Stanton said. “With how we’re losing as much as we are, everybody has doubts. I think if she can talk to herself and have the strong voice there, we’re going to start seeing the performances that she’s capable of having.” Despite having a poor performance in the opener, Wood was credited for the first victory of the season the following weekend against Boston College. She only gave up one run and five hits in four innings pitched. This hasn’t been the ideal comeback season for Wood, as she has a team-high 6.41 ERA. But she’ll need to continue growing and become stronger if the Hoosiers hope to be competitive with Big Ten play right around the corner. “We’ve seen such great process in her being a lefty with power and we’re excited about her development and where she is,” Stanton said. “She gives us a different dimension. We have a lot of faith in her and believe in her to get the job done.”

Scotty Bradley fields an out at first base against Evansville during the second inning of the 2016 season at Bart Kaufman Field. Bradley hit a walkoff single to give IU a 4-3 win against Northern Illinois on Sunday at Bart Kaufman Field.

IU wins in walk-off fashion By Cameron Drummond cpdrummo@iu.edu | @cdrummond97

Scotty Bradley knew he couldn’t escape. After hitting an RBI single down the right-field foul line to give IU a 4-3 victory against Northern Illinois on Sunday afternoon at Bart Kaufman Field, the sophomore infielder tried to outrun his IU teammates. Bradley ran into shallow right field and then veered into center field before abandoning his plan to try and avoid the onrushing Hoosiers. He eventually embraced the mob of players as IU celebrated its sixth-straight win. “It was just, spur of the moment type thing,” Bradley said. “I was just trying not to get tackled, I guess. Can’t really explain that walk-off. Just a lot of excitement and

just, kind of happens naturally.” The Hoosiers swept the Huskies during the threegame weekend series and improved their overall record to 15-4. Each of the three wins came in a different fashion. Friday’s 18-0 blowout win was the most runs IU had scored since a 27-run output against Butler in March 2016, while Saturday’s 4-3 win featured another late-inning comeback from IU. Consecutive eighth-inning home runs Saturday from junior infielder Luke Miller and senior outfielder Logan Sowers turned a onerun deficit into a one-run win. Sunday’s victory was the fifth one-run win by IU this season. “I like the fact that we can come back and play well late

in tight games,” IU Coach Chris Lemons said. “I like the 18-0s better, but they don’t happen very often.” Each of the victories against Northern Illinois were aided by strong outings from IU’s starting pitchers. Junior Jonathan Stiever allowed just two hits in six innings pitched Friday and junior Pauly Milto struck out seven batters and allowed one run in 5.2 innings pitched Saturday. Sophomore Cameron Beauchamp delivered an equally strong performance Sunday, pitching six shutout innings as IU continues to search for a Sunday starting pitcher to compliment Stiever and Milto. “He got his breaking ball rolling during those middle innings,” Lemonis said of Beauchamp’s start. “He’s as talented as anybody we got. It’s just getting him out there

and letting him pitch with the command like Milto and Stiever.” Prior to Bradley’s heroics Sunday, it was a balanced day from IU at the plate, as nine different Hoosiers combined for the team’s 11 hits. However, Bradley’s hit came in his first plate appearance of the game. He entered the game in the eighth as a defensive replacement at first base. “I’m just looking to be aggressive,” Bradley said about his game-winning plate appearance. “The first pitch I got was a really good one to hit. No question I was a little overanxious on it and tried to do a little too much. But I believe it was a changeup, the second pitch, that was just left up and just trying to get my swing off. Luckily got some barrel on it and it worked out.”

EVANSTON, Ill. — It didn’t take IU long to enter the toughest part of its Big Ten schedule. IU had to face the top two teams in the conference, Illinois and Northwestern, to start Big Ten play. IU fell 6-1 at No. 5 Northwestern on Saturday, after falling to No. 6 Illinois by a five-point deficit last weekend. The Hoosiers came out sluggish, and Northwestern quickly took the doubles point, winning 6-0 at the No.1 doubles and 6-1 at the No. 3 doubles. IU is 30-12 in doubles play this season, and one of its biggest strengths has been winning that first point. “I don’t think we played doubles at all the way we know how to play doubles,” IU Coach Ramiro Azcui said. “We just came out really flat.” IU responded well after losing the doubles point, playing singles with energy. The IU players constantly said “Let’s go IU,” and “Go Hoosiers,” throughout the entire match. Juniors Madison Appel and Natalie Whalen and sophomore Caitlin Bernard played ranked opponents in their singles matches. Appel faced No. 50 senior Erin Larner, Bernard played No. 58 senior Maddie Lipp and Whalen played No. 85 junior Lee Or. Whalen defeated Or 7-5, 6-3, which provided IU with its sole point of the match. Whalen had some rough stretches earlier this season, losing to Marquette, Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee and Notre Dame in about a two-week span. Azcui said he was proud

of her leadership throughout her rough start to the season. “We are thrilled for her to get a win like that,” Azcui said. “To be able to do that in her hometown, that is an awesome feeling.” A Chicago native, Whalen said this match was more of a homecoming than it was an away match. The crowd at Northwestern was the biggest crowd IU had seen all year, and a lot of those spectators were Whalen’s family and friends. “Because everyone was watching me, it didn’t rattle me,” Whalen said. “I was very comfortable and felt like I was playing at home. I’ve been here so many times.” Whalen said she was glad her rough swing of games came during the nonconference portion of the schedule because that part isn’t as important as conference play. “We had a pretty big team meeting yesterday to discuss what we can do individually to help the team,” Whalen said. “One of mine was trying to maintain focus. I think that focus really helped me improve my play and see positive results in this match.” Freshmen Jelly Bozovic and Michelle McKamey both lost in straight sets in the No. 5 and No. 6 spots, but Azcui said he is glad his freshmen got a taste of what the Big Ten is about. Azcui said his team needs to realize they are capable of winning Big Ten games, and they are close to doing what they need to do to win. “To start against the top two teams in the Big Ten is tough, especially on the road,” Azcui said. “We got to bounce back. We are looking forward to more.”

Eilish melds silky vocals, meaningful lyrics Hannah Reed is a junior in journalism.

Some people grow up with music. It sits at the very core of their being and is something they have been doing since they were young, much like riding a bike. Billie Eilish, full name Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, is one of those people. She first joined the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus when she was 8 years old. In addition to singing, Eilish is a fairly skilled contemporary dancer. “Ocean Eyes,” which is Eilish’s most popular song on Spotify, sits at just under 40 million plays, and was the breakthrough that gave the 16-year-old artist the attention she deserved. Her song “Bored” was featured on the Netflix original TV show, “13 Reasons Why.” Eilish grew up in a house filled with musicians and actors. Her older brother, Finneas O’Connell from The Slightlys, helps produce and co-write most of her music, according to online music guide AllMusic. Her debut album, “dont smile at me,” released in August 2017, when she was 15. Not only does the album consist of nine songs that are beautifully done productionwise, but the lyrics are also worth listening to closely. “Why so sad, bunny, you can’t have mine?” Eilish sings in “COPYCAT.” She told digital media company and website Genius that she decided to use the word “bunny” as a substitute for a more vulgar word, because she felt using that was more original than swearing, and she knew her audience was young. “Bunny” was chosen to symbolize something

small and cute, meaningless in the comparison to the polar bear she sees herself as. Her lyrics are often layered with different meanings, but sometimes, they’re straightforward. “My friends aren’t far/In the back of my car/Lay their bodies,” she sings on “bellyache,” a song she says is from the point of view of a serial killer, according to Billboard. Eilish’s voice is hauntingly beautiful, especially for a 16-year-old. Her songs are filled with layered, silky vocals and beats that have you gearing up to sing along. The sounds in Eilish’s songs are

lovely and full, and it reminds me of the way Sample Gates looks when they plant all the flowers after the winter has rolled out. It’s a combination of Melanie Martinez and Lorde. The sound is Melanie Martinez-esque in “my boy,” and her lyrics are deep with meaning much like Lorde’s. Eilish is like a love child of the two artists, except she puts a spin on things and makes the sound her own, especially with songs “watch” and “hostage.” Eilish cannot only be compared to legends like Lorde, but she can also say

that she worked with some, too. “&burn” is the final song on the album, featuring Vince Staples. It’s a remake of the song “watch,” though the tone and speed are very different. Staples comes in about halfway through, and as always, he kills it. Though Eilish’s lyrics are the same from “watch,” the delivery is different, and with Staples featured, it sounds like an entirely different song. Eilish is an incredible artist at age 16, and I can’t wait to see what she does in the years to come. You can listen to her album “dont smile at me” on Spotify.

“Loving Vincent,” the first ever fully painted feature film, will be screening at various venues around Bloomington throughout March as part of the Ryder film series. “Loving Vincent” is a biopic about the influential painter Vincent Van Gogh, that also focuses on the mystery surrounding the circumstances of his death. The film was also nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards. The film will be screened multiple times every weekend through March 25, with the first screening taking place at 7 p.m. Friday, March 9, at the IU Fine Arts Building. A full schedule of screening times and locations is available on the Ryder’s website. Tickets to all single screenings are $6. Each frame of the film’s hour-and-a-half run time was painstakingly painted in the style of Van Gogh. According to the Ryder’s website, the film took roughly four years to complete. Initially, it was shot with actors on greenscreen, and then painted over by a team of classically trained painters. Michelle Facos, an art history professor at IU, said the film is an important celebration of an important artist. “He is important because his expressive way of painting paved the way for Expressionism in the 20th century,” Facos said. “He is one of the few artists in the 1880s who sought to make his personal response to nature visible to the viewer.” More importantly, she said, the film is beautifully

made. “It’s a wonderful film,” she said. IU freshman Tanner Chaille said he thinks the film’s style and subject matter create an interesting interplay. “I think it’s a pretty cool idea,” he said. “Van Gogh’s style is pretty influential, and I think taking it into the film medium is an interesting concept, because it kind of creates art and film in a pretty literal way that people can appreciate.” Chaille said he thinks it’s important to celebrate Van Gogh’s art and acknowledge his struggles. “I think Van Gogh’s life represents a lot of struggles that people go through on a daily basis, like isolation and depression,” he said. He said he thinks the portrayal of such things in a biography about Van Gogh is evergreen in terms of relevance. “His life ended pretty tragically,” Chaille said. “So I think bringing more of his story rather than just his artwork into popular culture is pretty important because it shows that even revered artists have struggles like we all do.”

Feature film“Love, Simon” may not be perfect, but it really matters ten and directed by openly queer men — screenwriter James Ivory and filmmaker Luca Guadagnino — and the finished product felt genuine, meaningful, tender. By contrast, “Love, Simon” is a film produced by the same Hollywood studio machine that churns out virtually indistinguishable blockbusters all summer, every summer, and I can only imagine that its screenwriters were not given the same degree of freedom. What’s most questionable is the film seems only occasionally concerned with the personal experience of coming out. Mostly, it feels preoccupied with the way its protagonist’s coming out is taken and acknowledged by his peers. As someone who’s been through every step of that long and arduous process — one which Simon astutely notes shouldn’t even be necessary, prompting one of the film’s most important observations and most forgettable, overwrought gags — I felt this seemed disingenuous. Thankfully, though, the film’s director, televisionshowrunner Greg Berlanti is both an openly gay man and an expert at crafting marketable and undeniably entertaining teen soaps. I note the former because I firmly believe in the importance of queer authorship in queer narrative, and the latter because Berlanti certainly feels like the man for the job. Though on paper the majority of the ways “Love, Simon” addresses and interacts with queer experiences and storytelling is deeply flawed, Berlanti renders these flaws mostly acceptable because

Chris Forrester is a freshman in journalism.

“Love, Simon” is an important film. It isn’t an exceptionally well-made film, nor is it without a number of tremendously irritating and sometimes nearly crippling flaws. But the film is so important in its message and its significance as a cultural moment that many of its more insignificant flaws fall by the wayside. To acknowledge them is valid, but to harp on them would be beside the point. “Love, Simon” is a vital film. For those unaware, it’s the feature film adaptation of Becky Albertalli’s young adult book, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.” And it’s significant because it chronicles a high school senior’s tumultuous journey towards coming out as gay, representing one of the first times queerness has been accepted by mainstream Hollywood as a valid center for a film ostensibly aimed at teens. But therein lies a bit of its problem. Author Becky Albertalli is a heterosexual woman, and in writing the novel from which the movie was adapted she purports to have some degree of knowledge about the queer experience. The adaptation of literary works by straight people into meaningful and even profound queer films is not an insurmountably difficult task. The recent “Call Me by Your Name” achieved it, even made it look effortless. But that was a film more willing to be liberal in its translation of its source material. It was an independent film writ-

he plays them for highschool, soap-opera-style drama, not for commentary on the LGBT experience. This is a sloppy, melodramatic teen flick that doubles as a coming-out story. Its appeal is predominantly in the representation department, not in the nuances of its message. “Love, Simon” works so well because Berlanti, the mind behind the CW’s tremendously popular television series “Riverdale,” knows precisely what young adults find compelling. He’s proven himself more than capable when it comes to making teen drama both palatable and pleasant, and with “Love, Simon,” he creates an admittedly unoriginal work that functions so well purely because it embraces the tropes and iconography of the teen flick. The film understands

that it’s not particularly revelatory, but it wears its heart on its sleeve and is all the better for it. This is a schlocky, hokey, melodramatic, mostly generic, trite, messy trope-fest, but one that dons the familiar and lovable facets of teen rom-coms and high school soaps to admirable effects. Every frame, every set and every character looks freshly plucked from an Abercrombie and Fitch promotional flier, and there’s not a single plot beat, character trope or stylistic choice that won’t read as familiar to anyone who’s seen the likes of “The Breakfast Club,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” or any other such film. But it works, and even soars, purely because underneath its polished, overproduced exterior is a heart of

gold. It’s hard to hate something with such good intentions, and even harder not to be won over by its warm, infectious charm. I found myself rather unexpectedly invested in its cast of characters, and though the melodrama in which they’re frequently embroiled can grow tiresome, the film’s warmth doesn’t. This is a film directed by a gay man but adapted from a novel by a straight woman and aimed predominantly at straight moviegoers. But aspects of its coming-out narrative feel stirringly genuine. They did to me, at least, and I think they will feel genuine to others who have shared similar experiences. Its comingout themes, especially its exploitation of them to fuel the insatiable fires of high school melodrama, can feel frustrat-

ingly misguided at times. But at its best, “Love, Simon” feels like a rousing personal work for Berlanti. He clearly recognizes the universality of coming out — although the circumstances, specific feelings and sensations might be immensely varied for LGBT people of different social standings and in different places, the personal significance is ultimately the same. To me, that felt immensely moving. Frustrated as I was at times, I found myself undeniably affected by the film’s very existence. Its carefree embracing of teen flick tropes might render it mostly familiar, but it also feels like a move to combat decades worth of queer erasure from mainstream Hollywood. Finally, there’s a movie for me, and for millions of other LGBT people who’ve experienced similar things. It’s a deeply imperfect one, but also a warm and loving one, and most significantly, it’s there. I was particularly struck by a line from Simon’s mother shortly after his coming out. “You get to exhale now, Simon,” she says. “You get to be more you than you have been in a very long time.” And that’s what “Love, Simon” feels like. A long-awaited, much-deserved exhale. It’s not the be-all-end-all of big screen queer representation, but it’s a step in the right direction. It’s what millions of people worldwide have been yearning for for a very long time. And I love it, idiosyncrasies, flaws and all. chforres@umail.iu.edu Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) —Today is a 7 — Domestic comforts draw you in. Clean and beautify your space before settling into it.
