Interfaith Winter Shelter’s tenants adapt to homelessness the first night after the shelter’s closing STORY BY SARAH ZINN PHOTOS BY CAITLIN O’HARA @caitlin_oh

Angela Riley and Ronnie Deckard, a couple experiencing homelessness in Bloomington, watch a demonstration Tuesday on the Monroe County Courthouse lawn in response to the closing of the Interfaith Winter Shelter for summer. The couple have been together for more than a year. Riley said he was “eyeballing” her, so she offered him a cigarette and they just started talking.

Ashley Howerton talks about her children, who live with her mother in Spencer, Ind., before going to bed at the First Christian Church. Volunteer John Adams opened the church for the homeless even though he wasn’t supposed to.

Angela Riley and other members of the homeless community wait as Forrest Gilmore, executive director of Shalom Community Center, looks up what time it was forecast to rain. His phone said it would begin at 3 a.m., but it started raining closer to 10 p.m.

Rabbi talks homosexuality, gender roles in Jewish faith BY SUZANNE GROSSMAN @suzannepaige6

As an Orthodox Jew, it took Rabbi Steve Greenberg two decades to come out as a gay man, but only minutes to recap his experiences Wednesday night. Greenberg recounted his story of coming to terms with being gay in the Orthodox Jewish tradition Wednesday at an IU Hillel-sponsored event. He is commonly known as the first openly gay Jewish Orthodox rabbi, event organizer and junior Avi Sonnenschein said. After realizing his attraction to men at the age of 20, Greenberg went to a right-wing Orthodox rabbi and told him he was attracted to both men and women, and that he needed advice. “The rabbi said to me, ‘My dear one, my friend, you have twice the power to love. Use it carefully,’” Greenberg said. “I ran from there excited thinking I had twice the

love and would be a great rabbi and marry a woman. Only later did I realize I only had attractions to men.” Typically, Orthodox Judaism strictly does not allow openly gay rabbis. Rabbis are not to perform commitment ceremonies for any gay people, despite the fact that

Orthodox Jews are a diverse group of people with a diverse set of beliefs, Greenberg said. He said gay sex is portrayed as shameful in Jewish scripture because it is an issue of power. SEE RABBI, PAGE 6

When the rain started, the music didn’t stop. The two men singing, “This land is your land, this land is my land,” kept playing their banjos. But farther up the hill, where people sought shelter under a small part of the courthouse roof, the music wasn’t as loud as the rain hitting the pavement. The night of April 1 meant the same thing for all of them — a night without a home. Interfaith Winter Shelter, the only place in town open to everyone, even those with addictions, closed for the summer. It was 9:30 p.m. and they had just finished protesting the shelter’s closing. Volunteers stuck around, but slowly the people spread out, knowing they had to go to the bathroom or find something to eat before they settled somewhere for the night. A light was on in an office cubicle visible through the half-closed blinds of a courthouse window. Angela Riley stood outside. Protecting her bags from the rain, she placed them in the indented window frame where she sometimes slept last summer. A desk decorated with greeting cards, family pictures and a cozy desk chair sat only a wall away. She covered her bags with a trash bag to keep them dry. “That’s how you fix a bag,” she said to Ronnie Deckard, her boyfriend. They were a couple, but on nights like this they were a team. If he went somewhere, she waited for him, guarding their bags. He didn’t let her carry them around, either. He said they were too heavy. They shared cigarettes and talked about where they would go if the rain got worse. Maybe under the B-Line Bridge. Maybe they could convince someone to let them sleep on his or her couch.

Violinist to perform at auditorium tonight BY ANTHONY BRODERICK

In 2003, the Kennedy Center Honors said of Itzhak Perlman, “The world falls in love with music when Perlman takes up his violin.” Known for being one of the world’s most celebrated violinists, Perlman will perform at 8 p.m. today in the IU Auditorium along with his longtime collaborator, pianist Rohan De Silva. Tickets prices for IU students range from $20 to $51, and tickets for the general public range from $38 to $69. Tickets may be purchased online at IUauditorium. com or in person at the box office. Perlman and De Silva will perform works including “Sonata No. 8 in G Major for Violin and Piano, Op. 30 No. 3” by Beethoven, “Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major” by Franck and “Sonata in G Minor for Violin and Piano, L. 140” by Debussy. “It is a special honor for Indiana University Auditorium to host legendary violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman.

Costello discusses nonprofits BY ANNIE GARAU

Emmy-nominated journalist Amy Costello, host and senior producer of the podcast “Tiny Spark,” shared her thoughts on reporting and the nonprofit sector with Hutton Honors students Wednesday morning. “One thing I see a lot of in the nonprofit world is ego,” Costello said. “It’s cloaked under the notion of doing good, but it’s really all about them. Some people will be like, ‘I’m a surgeon at NYU. I can do surgery in post-quake Haiti,’ when in fact you can’t, and you shouldn’t without proper training.” Costello created her podcast in an effort to check that ego. According to the podcast’s website, its mission is to “investigate the business of doing good.” To accomplish that mission, Costello researches and asks critical questions about well-known nonprofits to determine their effectiveness. Costello was inspired to start the podcast after reporting for Public Radio International about a service initiative called PlayPumps. The idea was to install energygenerating merry-go-rounds in African communities with limited access to water. Children would theoretically play on the machines, which would power water pumps so the community would have easier access to clean water. When Costello first learned about the program, she wrote a glowing report that helped influence United States officials to make a $16.4 million government grant to PlayPumps International. When Costello followed up in the African communities three years later, she was dismayed at what she saw. “Basically everything that could’ve gone wrong with PlayPump had gone wrong,” she said.

After years of declining population growth rates in Indiana, 2013 data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows a turn around. A report by the Indiana Business Research Center in the IU Kelley School of Business reveals Indiana’s population growth rate is increasing, inching toward where that number was prior to 2008’s recession. “When you have major shocks, whether it’s great booms or great busts, things kind of reroute back to the mean,” said Matt Kinhorn,

Design students, IU RSO present fashion show BY NICOLE GOLDMAN


Amy Costello talks with Hutton Honors College students about investigative reporting in the nonprofit industry Wednesday. Costello is the founder, host and senior producer of “Tiny Spark,” a podcast and multimedia platform that investigates the “Business of Doing Good.”

Costello found that many of the pumps had broken and they were too complex for local maintenance. Even the working pumps were not running as planned. When children did not spend enough time “playing” throughout the day, the women in the communities had to sit on the merry-go-rounds to get enough water, an experience which Costello said the women found humiliating. “It was a real learning experience for me about how complicated it is to do good,” Costello said. “Although it’s really difficult to ask the hard questions to well-intentioned people, I think it’s very important that we do it.” One of Costello’s most well-known projects is her critical investigation of the nonprofit TOMS Shoes. She said she thinks the organization, along with all nonprofits, would be more beneficial if its founder had taken into account the opinions of the local people he intended to help. “Not consulting with the

local population can be a major problem,” Costello said. “If the founder of TOMS Shoes had asked them about things to get or what they need, I doubt shoes would even be on their top-10 list.” Costello talked about her skepticism that consumer dollars can be used to create positive change. In her experience, the one-for-one model — you buy something here, a poor person gets the same thing there — has not been as effective as more holistic onthe-ground projects. “I think we want doing good to be easy like, ‘I can buy a pair of shoes and help somebody,’” Costello said. “It might be better if you buy a pair of shoes that costs half as much as TOMS and then use the rest of the money for an organization that’s putting in the work on the ground to do a lot of good.” Costello said she receives some negative feedback for criticizing people and organizations typically seen in a positive light. She said the possibility of offending peo-

ple is not high on her list of concerns. “I don’t care what the founder of TOMS Shoes thinks of me,” she said. “I care about the vulnerable children he’s claiming to help.” Costello is also skeptical about short-term volunteerism, like week-long service trips. She said she believes the money people spend on flying to impoverished areas and paying for a place to stay, translators and coordinators could be used in a better way. She said it might be more beneficial to volunteer in your own community and send the money you would have spent on traveling to a nonprofit working in another county. “Many of these international issues are also present in our own communities,” Costello said. “You could take the money, donate it to an organization to accomplish the same results and then serve in your own community to relieve that desire to help in person.”

Census data tracks Ind. population growth BY ANNA HYZY @annakhyzy

across all IU campuses. She will work with bursar staff to identify any changes that need making in their work processes, and to standardize as many areas as possible, according to an IU press release.

an economic analyst at the Indiana Business Research Center. After the recession, growth rates fell dramatically and are now working their way to levels that would be considered normal. “If you look at the state, we grew just about half a percent in 2013,” Kinghorn said. “And that’s an improvement over 2012 where we grew about three tenths of a percent.” The report shows that 45 of the 92 counties in Indiana experienced a population decline in 2013. This was largely caused by a net out-migration of residents and, in 16 of these

counties, a natural decline, rooting from more deaths than births, according to the report. “There’s really a handful of metropolitan areas that are kind of the engine for population growth in Indiana,” Kinghorn said. He said he thinks trends in metropolitan areas will be most interesting to track going forward. “Some people think that we’re going to see a ‘back to the city’ trend,” he said. He said that he’s skeptical of this idea, but looks forward to an end result. Kinghorn said while this is a positive thing, the rates are not yet back to normal.

“It’s just another indicator pointed in the right direction,” he said. The growth is a positive sign for Indiana’s economy. Kinghorn said it’s something he’s been waiting for, because he never expected the slow growth to continue for as long as it did. The population growth remained slow after the recession, which began in 2008. “Our population growth rate really goes hand in hand with our economic fortunes,” he said. “When things are going well in Indiana, then we’re attracting residents to the state.”

Student designers will showcase their talent to friends, family and members of the IU community today. The IU Retail Studies Organization will present its annual Fashion Show at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall in the Indiana Memorial Union. “This year, we will highlight designers more than ever,” said junior Katie Scott, the executive vice president of programming for RSO. “It’ll have a sleeker, more modern feel. This year will feel more like a real fashion show.” The show is sponsored by CollegeFashionista, a fashion website where students discuss current trends, share beauty tips and distribute style advice from campuses nation-wide. Paul Mitchell, the Sage Collection and the IU Student Association will also sponsor the event. CollegeFashionista will provide a photo booth for attendees, and Paul Mitchell will style hair and make-up for runway models. Campus Candy will supply treats to the audience. The fashion show is RSO’s spring capstone event, and they will showcase several designs from apparel merchandising students in the fashion design program. Students in the interior design program also designed and created an arch to cover the runway. This year’s fashion show is expected to be the biggest yet, with a change in venue and in number of sponsors. RSO is expecting more than 500 attendees, senior and RSO President Kelsey Pepmeier, said.

Many of the designs will reveal trends one can expect to see on the runway and on the streets in upcoming seasons, she said. Designers and their mantras, quotes they’ve picked from people who have inspired them, will be displayed by a projector as models walk the runway, Scott said. “The Fashion Show is the one chance for designers to showcase their work,” Scott said. But fashion design students must earn a spot in the show. “They must be skilled,” Scott said. “Only juniors and seniors can showcase their designs.” One designer worked at New York Fashion Week this past February, and another is currently interning with Michael Kors. “There’s even a wedding dress,” Scott said. RSO is composed of students with a variety of interests in fashion and retail. It’s one of the largest organizations on campus, with more than 400 students majoring in a range of subjects, including apparel merchandising, fashion design, journalism and business. Each year, the organization travels to New York City, Chicago and across Indiana to meet industry professionals and leading designers. Designers, brand representatives, CEOs of fashion companies and other industry professionals also visit IU to speak with RSO members and AMID students. “Design is an integral part of retail,” Pepmeier said. “The fashion show allows designers with an artistic vision to give a voice behind their designs.”

Council debates deer issue BY MARY KATHERINE WILDEMAN @mkwildeman

The Bloomington City Council considered an amendment to an existing ordinance during a meeting Wednesday night that would allow professional sharpshooting at the Griffy Lake Nature Preserve. The amendment to the current ordinance, proposed by council member Dave Rollo, would allow only professional sharpshooters contracted by the city to hunt within the Griffy Lake Nature Preserve. Costs to the city for this expense were estimated to be about $30,000 annually. Municipal code does not allow any use of a firearm within city limits unless it is discharged by a law enforcement officer or used in selfdefense. Rollo said that if the council does not take action to curb deer overabundance now, the effects could be irreversible. “Damage is acute now,”

Rollo said. “And it’s getting worse.” The meeting began with the council voting by a margin of 5 to 3, with one abstention, not to limit the amount of time allowed for council deliberation and public comment. Council member Stephen Volan presented a motion to limit the debate to three hours in order to regulate the amount of time Wednesday night’s meeting would take. “There’s no reason why this has to be decided at second reading on April 9,” Volan said, implying that the ordinance could go to a third reading. Several council members objected, saying that the motion was unprecedented and would limit the input of the public. “We’ve never done this before,” council member Andy Ruff said. Each public comment was limited to five minutes, however. Ramsay Harik, a community member, asked the

council to take immediate action, putting priority on the science available to them “no matter how squeamish it makes the rest of us feel.” David Parkhurst, who worked for the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs until 2005, said allowing this amendment would help preserve the existing environment at Griffy Lake. “I don’t understand what’s so precious about deer that makes them so much more important than birds and other wildlife,” Parkhurst said. A Griffy Lake Master Plan compiled in 2008 recognized the problem of deer overpopulation and called for an examination of potential solutions to the problem. Sharpshooting was determined to be the most viable option. Contraception and sterilization were both discussed at Wednesday night’s council meeting as alternatives, but were generally agreed

City acquires last of land needed for park project BY KATE STARR

After 14 years of slow property acquisition, the last few acres of land have been acquired for the proposed Switchyard Park. Mick Renneisen, Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department director, said the project is now on the path toward construction. The city recently secured 6.79 acres that will be devoted to a west-side entrance and parking area for the future park. This makes for a grand total of 65 acres in an area southwest of campus. A funding source for the development has yet to be identified, but the city is currently doing an analysis of the project’s financial capacity, Renneisen said. “Different funding sources have different requirements for how they can be used, and that’s what the consultant will be doing,” Renneisen said. “We know some of those will be able to be used in the park, but until we get the complete plan, we won’t know how much. And then the mayor will have to make a determination on priorities.” However, the city still has big plans in the works for Switchyard Park. Situated between Grimes

Lane and County Club Road, the park location includes a long strip of land with a creek running along one side and a trail down the other. Located in the middle of Bloomington, the city has high hopes for the positive affect the park will have on the community. “Parks add lots of value to people’s individual lives from a health standpoint, mentally and physically,” said Karin St. John, Bloomington Parks Foundation executive director. “Then you have a community full of healthy employees. So, really, it adds an economic impact as well as having a great park system.” The Parks Foundation will work to insure that funding for Switchyard is secured, and St. John said she is excited to be part of such an amazing project. The space between the creek and the trail, which Renneisen called the “great lawn,” will be devoted to a number of uses. Toward the north side of the park, there will be a stage for performances and special events. Renneisen said he hopes there will be space in the park for roughly 15,000 people. “We think that space has great expandable potential for many great things,” he

said. The lawn will also have an active area devoted to basketball, volleyball and informal play. A community garden, open to the public for growing vegetables and herbs, will be located nearby. On the opposite end of the park, there will be a few areas for dog parks and connections to the B-Line Trail and Bloomington Rail Trail. “That will allow people to meander on trail surfaces,” Renneisen said. “Whether they want to walk or observe the creek or hang out in the shade, whatever, there will be a lot of trail opportunities embedded in the lawn.” To give a better idea of how he hopes the project will turn out, Renneisen compared the future Switchyard Park to Bryant Park when it was first being developed. However, he did point out that Switchyard will be almost twice the size of Bryant Park and is shaped slightly differently. “My belief is that this park’s development, whenever that happens, will transform this part of the community from what it looks like today to something much more like what Bryant Park transformed our community to look like 60 years later,” he said.

upon to not be cost-effective. “Contraception has ever proven ineffective in a free-ranging environment,” said Josh Griffin, a regional supervisor with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Michael Ellenwood said he had been hunting deer his entire life and feels the council is not considering unintended consequences. Ellenwood is from upstate New York, an area that also struggles with deer overabundance. He said he feels that shooting the deer will only cause them to disperse. “As soon as you start shooting them, they’ll move,” Ellenwood said. Richard Darling, a Bloomington resident, said his neighborhood was serving as a “highway” for deer traveling to Griffy Lake. “‘Bambi’ is a very interesting movie. It’s fun to watch and kids love it,” Darling said. “I don’t want a herd of deer and skunks ravaging my front yard.”

The U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services recently announced its Birth to Five: Watch me Thrive! program, which aims to get all children on the same track once they reach kindergarten. This is part of a nationwide push to enhance early childhood education. Gov. Mike Pence signed House Bill 1004 into law Thursday, which will create a pilot pre-kindergarten program for 4-year-olds in up to five Indiana counties. The Birth to Five program encourages behavioral and developmental screenings for young children to help catch problems early on. The program also encourages families to celebrate milestones their children reach. “Early screening can lead to better access to services and supports, which can enhance children’s learning and development, minimize developmental delays and result in more positive outcomes in school and life,” said Michael Yudin, acting assistant secretary for the U.S. Education Department’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, in an USDOE press release. These screenings will check children’s development progress and find any developmental delays, which can then lead to getting these children the help they need. According to the release, the initiative is meant to encourage early childhood experts — including practitioners in early care and education, primary health care, early intervention, child welfare and mental health — to work with children and their families. Most children are

diagnosed with autism after the age of 4, although it can be diagnosed as early as age 2, according to the release. Rebecca Swanson, instructor for early childhood education at Hoosier Hills Career Center, assists high school students interested in working with children in the education field. Swanson said she thinks the new program seems like a sound option, and said she is also supportive of any federal money going toward early childhood education in any capacity. Getting kids the support they need helps them catch up and go to school without being held back, Swanson said. Swanson said at this point in a child’s life, the brain is developing very fast, faster than at any other point in life. If a child is delayed developmentally before the age of 5, it can be harder for them to catch up once they get to school. Swanson said the initiative will be especially great if it works hand in hand with other programs, such as Head Start, a federal program that helps children from low income families prepare for school by age 5. It is important to get children learning experiences early on becausechildren’s brains are like sponges at this age and they are excited to learn, Swanson said. “Every family looks forward to celebrating a child’s first steps or first words,” Linda Smith, HHS deputy assistant secretary and interdepartmental liaison for early childhood development for children and families, said in the release. “Combining the love and knowledge families have of their children with tools, guidance and tips recommended by experts can make the most of the developmental support children receive.”

Hit-and-run accident Tuesday night leaves one man in critical condition FROM IDS REPORTS

Two men were thrown from their scooter Tuesday after a hit-and-run, leaving one in critical condition. Bloomington police responded to West Seventh Street near North Willis Drive Tuesday night to find Donald Reed, 24, unconscious at the scene. The driver of the Kymco

scooter — Zachary Frame, 24 — told police he was driving east on West Seventh Street when another vehicle struck him from behind, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said. Frame suffered scrapes and complained of pain in his head. Both Reed and Frame were transported to IUBloomington Hospital. Reed

remains in critical condition as of Wednesday with no information available on Frame. Police said the driver of the vehicle that struck Reed and Frame continued east on West Seventh Street but would not release a description of the vehicle. Dennis Barbosa

Court guts campaign finance law, again On Wednesday the Supreme Court overturned campaign finance law that set an overall cap on the amount of money a person can give to multiple candidates, committees or political parties.

The decision will be good news to billionaires like the Koch brothers, who have spent estimated hundreds of millions of dollars in nation-wide elections already. Looks like our elections are officially for sale.

It comes in with the warm weather and the reemergence of tank tops every spring. No, I’m not talking about allergies or the sweet temptation to forgo all your important work and head to the KOK patio at 11 a.m. on a Tuesday. I’m talking about the Little 500 concert announcement. The makeit-or-break-it moment when you find out if this year’s concert is going to be epic like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj in 2011 or a head-scratching pick like Sublime With Rome in 2012. The verdict is in, and we’ve got a head scratcher even more baffling than Sublime With Rome. ScHoolBoy Q will headline this year’s concert, which will be at 7:30 p.m. April 24 in the IU Auditorium. You know, whoever that is. First things first. The concert is in the auditorium, which is a fine and beautiful establishment for enjoying music. Unfortunately, it also screams, “Yeah, there’s no chance in hell we’re going to sell enough seats in Assembly Hall.” Because that’s what happened in 2012 with Sublime With Rome. Nobody wanted to go see some forgotten band from the 1990s, so they had to switch venues. I would have totally turned up for the Spin Doctors or Semisonic. But Sublime With Rome? No, thanks. Second, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have all headlined in Assembly Hall during Little 500 because they’re huge, established artists used to selling out arenas around the world. I’m not saying album sales and abundant radio play equals talent. ScHoolBoy Q seems like a perfectly legitimate artist. His latest album, “Oxymoron,” has an impressive score of 79 out of 100 on Metacritic, a website that complies critical reviews of movies, music, television and games. But this is Little 500. This is the one week a year where the rules become guidelines and guidelines become laughable. I was so inexplicably ready to turn up for Ke$ha, Miley Cyrus or Kanye West. I had my warrior paint and glitter primed and ready to go. Unfortunately, I didn’t count on Union Board dropping a wrecking ball on my Little 500 dreams. There is a time and place for small, underappreciated artists like ScHoolBoy Q to perform. There are countless lesser-known entertainers I would drop serious money to see. But not during Little 500. As big of a fan as I am of Lana Del Rey, she would put on a thoroughly lame Little 500 concert. The same goes for Lorde, Bastille and countless other big-name headliners we could have gotten. So it would seem my senior year is going out on a lamer note than I anticipated. Oh well, at least Rod Tuffcurls and the Bench Press will be here. @thedevilwearsdm


WE SAY: Corporations are not people. There’s a reason for-profit corporations are called forprofit. They exist to make a profit — not to practice a religion or vote or exercise many of the hundreds of other rights and privileges reserved for actual people. Corporations are not people. They are entities owned by an individual or a group of individuals. But their existence is and should be secondary to the existence of actual people and actual citizens of the United States. A case currently before the Supreme Court of the United States seeks to expand the application of religious freedom to for-profit corporations. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood are both for-profit corporations owned by religious individuals.

These individuals oppose certain contraceptive measures they view as abortifacients and believe their corporations are extensions of themselves. But those corporations are not covered by any of the exemptions to the requirement that employer-provided health insurance plans pay for these contraceptives. They are asking the Supreme Court to grant them an exemption under a 1993 law that places restrictions on when a law can “substantially burden” the practice of religion by a “person.” It’s that last word that is in contention. Is Hobby Lobby a person? It is clear to the Editorial Board that the answer must be no. The Dictionary Act, which

provides the meaning for certain words as used by Congress in legislations, defines a “person” as inclusive of corporations and other associations. As is often the case, Congress got it wrong. To appeal to a religious argument, it should be immediately clear that these corporations were not “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” the same rights that the right to religious freedom stems from. Even if corporations are people, they do not have to be perfect extensions of the beliefs of a small set of individuals we might call owners. There are 13,000 other employees of Hobby Lobby whose livelihood and industry are fundamental to any corporeal nature we might seek to find in the company.

If corporations are people, they are people explicitly owned by other people. That statement is absurd — not least in that it might seem to conflict with the 13th Amendment — and its absurdity should serve as another indicator for just how ridiculous this conversation is. Corporations are not people. They do not vote. They do not bleed in our wars. They are entities of collaboration among and between individuals. They are systems of organization, and they should be given particular privileges that allow them to function, but they should not be enfranchised in the same way real, live Americans with beating hearts are. @IDS_Opinion


Hormone therapy, not birth control As more and more private and religious institutions are required to provide birth control to their employees and staff members, it has become apparent the culture of thought about birth control needs to change. The name itself implies a certain degree of immorality. It frames the argument into a question of how can we be so careless to think we can play God and control this natural human function. And it is exactly this kind of thinking that is extremely harmful to women’s health. Women suffer from a range of health problems relating to menstruation and hormone imbalance and production. I can honestly say I have met maybe one or two women older than 20 who are taking birth control for the sole purpose of preventing

conception. It always has to do with acne, hormones, weight, bone problems, physical pain — the list goes on. There needs to be a separation between using birth control for pregnancy prevention and using birth control as hormone therapy or medication. Saying birth control only functions as a contraceptive repositions it as a hot-button moral issue. It creates massive problems for religious companies and institutions that do not believe in its use. It forces places like Hobby Lobby and Notre Dame to provide a service that compromises their own policies. If they choose not to, or to fight it, they harm the employees that actually need it.

There is little knowledge about the health benefits of birth control and the different reasons women use it. Companies only have the contraceptive context, not medical. It becomes a massive vicious cycle around what is really a semantics issue. Therefore, the nature of how we think about birth control must change. Rather than being the umbrella term for all women’s medication that regulates hormone production and health issues stemming from menstruation, it must be an aspect of women’s health. A better term would be “hormone therapy” or “women’s medication,” something that does not condemn itself when it is spoken out loud. It would also allow wom-

en who do not take birth control because of religious reasons, but seriously need it, the opportunity to seek medical help. Birth control and contraception might never be resolved in our lifetime. But the conversation needs to change. By changing a few terms and educating companies on its actual usage, we might be able to see some real progress in both women’s health and health care in the United States. @EmmaWenninger

“The Art of Bowing” begins with so much promise — the grand philosophical proclamation that “The theater is dead,” the promise of a resurrection and a literal light in the darkness. But then, nothing. Nothing that it has the capabilities to do. Don’t get me wrong, “The Art of Bowing” is technically a good play. It has spots of wit and humor, developing characters and an enticing premise — the overarching question of whether the theater as it has been is capable of describing the world as it is now. The play-within-a-play format and the blurred lines between the play and reality is a fantastic idea, and I believe it is necessary in order to address its theme of the importance and relevance of theater. But this all disappears. All of it. The fundamental question that pulls audiences in and gives philosophical weight to this journey that the main characters — a trio consisting of a lost actor, a wandering actress and an irritable theater revivalist — undergo. Once the play stumbles past the third or so scene, it degrades into individual subsections with microthemes that are not connected to the overarching theme. The characters describe the future of theater as an unclear path that one must essentially stumble along and see where it goes, but the characters do far too much stumbling and end at a point far away from where they should have ended. Perhaps it is the execution of the concept itself that makes it impossible to create any cohesive unity among the whole. How can one traverse the entirety of human history and the future of humanity without straying from a single theme? One can’t go from prehistoric times to the legend of Atlantis and then eventually end up in some theoretical four-dimensional future while keeping a single theme steadily present through every moment of the play. The truth is that, as it is set up right now, “The Art of Bowing” can’t. It stumbles blindly through several vignettes. The only relationship is sharing interior themes that are essentially, “The future is scary, but go forward anyway,” or “You can do anything you want to as long as you set your mind to it.” It is not enough to confront a daunting topic such as the meaning of an art form. The impersonal and often clichéd dialogue doesn’t help. The grandest philosophical proclamation in the entire play was along the lines of, “I thought I was leading the path, but the path was leading me.” It is then followed by the character’s recognition of his own understanding by saying, “I just blew my own mind.” In what form of literature is that considered necessary? The character’s own cliched line should be enough to depict some kind of fundamental realization. By all means, go and see “The Art of Bowing” for a laugh or two, but don’t expect to leave feeling satisfied. @IAmJoshAllen

Phi Delta Theta wins the first place of 2014 Little 500 Qualification at Bill Armstrong Stadium on Saturday.

Rain washed out ITTs, but here’s some of our best Little 500 photojournalism from quals. BY SAM BEISHUIZEN @Sam_Beishuizen

Little 500 Individual Time Trials have been rescheduled for noon to 7 p.m. Saturday because of inclement weather. Rain began to pour down on the track at Bill Armstrong Stadium about 30 minutes before the first riders were scheduled to start. The rain quickly flooded the track. Little 500 Race Director Jordan Bailey said the primary reasoning behind the cancellation was the threat of lightning, adding that safety was the priority. “I think the track would have been fine, but the lightning threat right now is just too much,” Bailey said. The rider order for the ITTs Saturday will remain the same as was scheduled for today. Official start times will be announced by the IU Student Foundation later today. Saturday’s regularly scheduled Miss-N-Out event will be moved to

April 12 from noon to 6 p.m. Team Pursuit will run from noon to 6 p.m. the following day, April 13. The schedule change will make for a busy weekend for the riders. The Women’s Little 500 will remain April 25 and the Men’s Little 500 will remain April 26. The rain was another setback on what has been an unlucky month of weather for Little 500 riders that has limited track time. “Mother nature is just not cooperating with Little 500,” Bailey said in a cancellation statement.

UNC wrong on athlete academics It turns out the University of North Carolina athlete who received an A-minus for his final paper plagiarized the poorly-written paragraph from a children’s book. The entire paragraph was lifted from the introduction of “Rosa Parks: My Story,” according to the Huffington Post. I suppose that explains the short, unimaginative sentences and simple dialogue. It reads like a homework assignment of which a first grader would not even be proud. Last week, whistleblower and sports reporter Bryan Armen Graham posted a photo of the athlete’s final paper to Twitter. The information coincided with an ESPN video report posted a few days earlier about student athletes at UNC taking so-called “paper

classes.” These classes are specifically tailored, require little work and are almost impossible to fail. Given the micro-managing that goes on in big universities like these, it’s hard to imagine school officials didn’t know what was going on. All 19 of the students in that particular AFAM 280 class either were, or had been, members of the Tarheels’ football team. Student athletes are, after all, students. They’re expected to put in the same amount of hard work as the rest of the student body, even with busy travel and practice schedules that don’t allow for much free time. They shouldn’t be given special treatment just because they generate revenue for the school. If this paper had somehow

become public in the 1960s, there’s a good chance it could have been a huge blow to the Civil Rights Movement as a whole. It’s almost impressively bad. It’s always wrong to plagiarize, but it’s disheartening when someone accepted to a top university can’t even steal the correct formatting and grammar when plagiarizing. If student athletes like these are not at school to learn, the school should come right out and say it. Providing scholarships to athletes like these reportedly involved in the scandal at UNC — who don’t work, earn A’s for not showing up to class and steal peoples’ intellectual property — undermines the intended duty of student athletes.

A pregnant woman sat cross-legged in a blue poncho, her round face the only visible part of her body. She hoped she was having a boy. She already had two girls. Pizza came, bought by the volunteers and Deckard, who contributed $6. Volunteers helped pitch a small overhead tent. Down the street at Kilroy’s Bar and Grill, music boomed. Through the windows, people conversed, laughed and drank. Across the street at People’s Park, three people experiencing homelessness tried to gather enough money for a motel room. It was 11 p.m. John Adams, a volunteer at Interfaith, couldn’t stand seeing people suffer in the rain.

There were only three women in the women’s room that night. Normally, there are 11. Howerton thought about how almost everyone else seemed to have someone who cared enough to give them shelter. But she didn’t. Out the window of the women’s room, the cross on the roof of First United Methodist Church glowed through the sheer curtains.

There are young people who need to be stood up for. “It is you and how you behave and act in the Jewish and non-Jewish communities you build that will actually change the world.”

‘We’re doing a sequel’ Renowned franchise, star-stacked cast add to fun atmosphere of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey B When a franchise has been alive and kicking for almost 60 years, it’s definitely doing something right. Think James Bond, Star Wars and countless horror movie franchises that never seem to die. Since their TV debut in 1955, the Muppets have been an American staple. And now Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the Swedish Chef are all instantly recognizable characters to younger generations thanks to 2011’s “The Muppets,” which grossed $165 million and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. “Muppets Most Wanted” picks up where “The Muppets” ended, so literally you can still see “The End” written in fireworks in the sky as the film begins. It isn’t long until they’re knee deep in their first musical number, appropriately titled “We’re Doing a Sequel.” It’s this self aware,

tongue-in-cheek attitude that keeps the Muppets hilarious to the 16 and above age bracket. Bret McKenzie, thankfully returning to pen original songs after the brilliant work he did in the 2011 film, doesn’t seem as assured this time around. Songs like “I’m Number One” and “The Big House” pack plenty of laughs, but you don’t skip out of the theater humming them. This time the stakes are also lower, which is curious when you consider the Muppets are touring Europe to keep their brand afloat and priceless art is being stolen by Constantine, the world’s most dangerous frog who happens to bear a striking resemblance to Kermit. Also along for the ride are Ricky Gervais as Constantine’s number two, Ty Burrell as a thoroughly European Interpol agent, and Tina Fey as a formidable Russian prison guard. Despite the addition of those three fine performers, the film suffers from the absence of Jason Segel and Amy Adams, both such gems in the 2011 film. Half the fun of any Muppets’ adventure is the blink-and-you’ll-missthem barrage of celebrity cameos. Everyone from Lady Gaga, Celine Dion and Christoph Waltz stop by for some quick fun. R&B crooner Usher even pops

up as, you guessed it, an usher at a wedding. Josh Groban shows up for what pays off to be a downright hilarious bit part. Even when you feel like the cast, both human and Muppet, isn’t having as much fun this time around, “Muppets Most Wanted” delivers an adventure worth paying attention to.

‘Salad Days’ Mac DeMarco B+ Mac DeMarco’s second album couldn’t have come at a better time. Just as warm weather finally seems to be in Bloomington to stay, the Canadian singersongwriter has delivered an album full of lazy-yet-polished rock ’n’ roll. DeMarco is known for being a goofball on stage, but on “Salad Days” he sounds focused and elegant. That’s not to say the album isn’t catchy and infectious. It takes the titular opener exactly 10 seconds to get to its wordless hook, and by then you’re ... well, you know. The energy continues on “Blue Boy” with a jaunty, whirling guitar riff. He mellows out briefly on “Brother” with a cautionary tale. DeMarco was forced to come up with “Let Her Go” when his label asked for an upbeat, late-night, TV-friendly single, which he’s still bitter about. He responded with a danceable jam complete with maracas and a beautiful, subtle hook. Whether or not he was mad about the song, it sounds authentic, and it’s one of the album’s best tracks. DeMarco has also developed a guitar sound that’s truly his own on this album, with surfrock tremolo and high chord

voicings that stand out on every track. Most of the songs are about three minutes, with only one of them longer than four. DeMarco says all he needs to say and nothing more in these short, concise pop songs. Most of the album’s style draws influence from surf rock bands like Girls and Smith Westerns. But DeMarco has clearly also been listening to the psychedelia of Tame Impala. It comes through on lead single “Passing Out Pieces.” He mimics Tame Impala lead singer Kevin Parker’s coy, distorted falsetto near the end above the track’s fuzzy bassline and blaring vintage synths. It’s a song that could have fit right in on Tame Impala’s 2012 album “Lonerism.” The second half shifts from the poppy hooks of the first few tracks to slightly extended tunes. DeMarco sings in airy tones and requires you to listen a little closer for the hooks. But he finishes strong with “Jonny’s Odyssey.” It’s an instrumental that sounds like it could be ska in its rhythm section-free intro until the drums and synth come in and it goes full-on psychedelic. “Salad Days” will surely have lasting power through the summer. It might not have any one song that’s up to par with “Ode To Viceroy,” a fan favorite from his first full-length, “2.” But it’s absolutely his best LP so far. BY JACOB KLOPFENSTEIN

Revenge is sweet. Enacting your revenge on national television while crushing and corrupting the lives of children and incurring the wrath of parents from across the country is enough to put you in a sugar coma. Unless you’re Guy Tilby. Guy is a 40-year-old man with a sailor mouth who pushes his way into a national spelling bee through a loophole. For reasons he won’t disclose, even to Jenny Widgeon, the reporter helping him, Guy is determined to make it to the final round no matter who he pisses off. Along the way Guy makes an unlikely friend in 10-yearold spelling bee contestant Chaitanya Chopra. Chaitanya represents the stereotypical nerd. He studies all the time, has no friends and he’s annoyingly polite. But through his relationship with Guy, Chaitanya tastes the wild side of life. A lot of twists and surprises pop up in the road to the final round, with an unexpected decision and a hilarious show down waiting at the end. “Bad Words” pulls the audience in through curiosity and irritation. We all want to know why a 40-year-old is forcing his way into a child’s spelling competition. You run every cliché in the book through your head, but Guy’s reasoning isn’t revealed until threefourths of the way through the

film. It was a clever move by the screenplay writer, Andrew Dodge. Normally, we’d get a sad background story in the beginning that would tug on our heartstrings. Instead, we have to accept Guy for what he is: an asshole. He’s rude, selfish, foulmouthed, borderline racist and he lacks integrity. He is detestable, only saved by his comedic antics. Jason Bateman brought his style to “Bad Words” as the director and the star. He delivered his lines in the emotionless, deadpan way he has mastered. Prolonged camera shots complemented his comedy, waiting through his awkward pauses and slow monologues. But the true star of “Bad Words” is Rohan Chand as Chaitanya. This kid takes adorableness to a new level, and he knows how to work it. Most surprising was his great comedic timing. Chand had no problems keeping up with a professional like Bateman. In comedy, it’s easy to fall into a formula. As a result, plots become predictable, jokes sound all too familiar and surprises aren’t a surprise at all. “Bad Words” steered clear of the clichés, throwing curve balls that could have ended badly. But the risks were worth it. “Bad Words” is guaranteed to make you laugh and learn a few new words. BY LEXIA BANKS

Wells, Mortimer deserve a much better series ‘Doll & Em’ Emily Mortimer, Dolly Wells C+ We’re living in a great age for ladies on television, especially the ones who are funny. Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling are doing their comedy thing on their respective FOX half-hour sitcoms. Lena Dunham’s “Girls” was renewed for a fourth season on HBO. The second season of Amy Schumer’s sketch comedy show “Inside Amy Schumer” is debuting its second season on Comedy Central. So it’s no surprise that real life British besties Dolly Wells and Emily Mortimer have launched a six-episode miniseries on HBO entitled “Doll & Em.” Playing dramatized versions of themselves, Wells, the unlucky in love and life sidekick, moves to Hollywood after a break-up to work as the assistant to her successful actress best friend, Mortimer. It’s no surprise that mixing work and friendship leads to semi-disastrous results. Wells unsuccessfully attempts to navigate Los Angeles traffic to pick up Mortimer on the street, leading Mortimer to shout one choice four letter expletive in front of some adoring fans. It’s some beautifully finessed metacomedy, especially to anyone familiar with Mortimer’s work. Though she’s more lovable on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO journalism drama “The Newsroom,” Mortimer is an effortlessly likable lady, even when she isn’t the world’s greatest BFF. Wells, though not as

recognizable as Mortimer, brings a subtle and layered nuance to Doll. Despite being broken up with and working under her more famous best friend, she’s never painted as a pitiful creature. The first episode finds Mortimer accidentally locking Wells outside of her house for upwards of 12 hours. Wells is furious, and even more so when Mortimer’s mistake barely registers to her when she returns home from a swanky Hollywood party rather tipsy. The scenes between Wells and Mortimer spark with unwaveringly realistic sentiment, thanks in large part to the audience’s awareness of their real life friendship. It’s just a shame the plot seems to exist on such a miniscule scale. There’s plenty of room on television for small stories that don’t have much effect on the world at large, and not every show needs to have the continuance of the human race hanging in the balance. But “Doll & Em” doesn’t seems to have any stakes at all. It’s so mild that sometimes it ends up feeling shapeless. I want to keep watching this show, and I desperately want it to get better. Wells and Mortimer are unsung talents in a sea of overly made up and sexualized female characters on television. And they demand your respect by writing, starring and producing their own small and personal series. There needs to be a place in popular culture for independent television, and I applaud HBO for giving “Doll & Em” space on the air. There’s a whole load of promise here. It just needs to start delivering. BY DANE MCDONALD

Elliott explains reasons for ‘GMA’ departure


It was widely speculated that Josh Elliott left “Good Morning America” for NBC Sports for monetary reasons. However, this was not the case, Elliott announced Wednesday.

“It was about what lies ahead for me at NBC Sports. I have always wanted to be part of an Olympics broadcast, and the opportunity to cover sports that captivate America was too good to pass up,” Elliott said.


Sarah’s Swing Set, a local three-piece jazz band, will perform at the Players Pub at 8 p.m. today. Musicians Sarah Flint and Robert Stright formed Sarah’s Swing Set in 2003.

Scat & jazz Local three piece jazz band to perform tonight at Players Pub BY CHRISTIAN KEMP

The sounds of swinging mallets clanging on vibraphone bars, the reverberating thrum of bass strings and jazzy vocals will come to Players Pub tonight. Sarah’s Swing Set, a local three-piece jazz band with 11 years of performance experience, will play at 8 p.m. today. Cover charge for the show is $5. A percussionist will join the band. Musicians Sarah Flint and Robert Stright started Sarah’s Swing Set in 2003. Flint and Stright met each other while performing in another jazz group, Stardusters. Ron Kadish, an IU alumnus who plays bass for Sarah’s Swing Set, was added soon after. Flint said one of the attractions of her band’s live show is watching Stright play the vibraphone.

“He is amazing to watch,” Flint said. “He has got those mallets flying, and it is a lot more interesting to watch than a piano player.” Flint said her band focuses on music from the American Songbook, which contains music primarily from the 1920s through the 1950s. A self-taught musician, Flint plays guitar, flute, ukulele and percussion, in addition to vocals. She currently instructs guitar and voice lessons in Bloomington and has been teaching music for more than 20 years. Flint has played in several bands of different genres. She also released an album this year with her other band, Hoosier Darling, also called Gozpel Gurlz. She said she does not have to try as hard to get her voice heard in jazz as she did with rock ’n’ roll. Her experiences with different genres do, however, affect her in

her jazz singing. “Since I come from such a diverse background, singing hard rock and country, I suppose I might have a different take on the jazz style,” Flint said. “I also scat a little bit.” Scatting is a singing technique used to create a melody with nonsensical words. Sarah’s Swing Set’s live jazz shows sometimes incorporate guest musicians. Among these include guitarist David Gulyas and New York City saxophonist and clarinetist Charles Frommer. “The last few months have been just fantastic,” Flint said. “The crowds were wonderful, and the shows were really great.” Kadish is a versatile bass player. In addition to Sarah’s Swing Set, he has recorded music with John Mellencamp, Jennie DeVoe and Ruthie Allen Lincoln, among many other musicians.

SARAH’S SWING SET Sarah’s Swing Set is a local three person jazz band .

It was an outside gig.” He said an audience came out, despite the wet weather. Oliver Winery put up awnings for the crowd. “It was a blast,” he said. “Bloomington, where people sit out in the rain and listen to jazz.”

Breakfast in France, or lack thereof In France, you simply cannot get full at breakfast. The typical French breakfast is miniscule and it almost always leaves you hungry. The French really don’t take breakfast seriously as a meal. But one trend is solving this problem — the American breakfast, or rather, brunch. Sunday morning brunch is becoming the newest food trend in Paris. There are two good places to solve the brunch craving. Even better, they are open Sunday — one of the notorious days when all of Paris is closed. Bailey Carraway, a sophomore from Wolford College studying abroad at the Institute of the International Education of Students, is a fan of Breakfast in America. “It was really tasty,” she said. “It was comforting because they had American coffee.”

One of the key places to go to for Americans feeling homesick, Breakfast in America serves typical breakfast foods like pancakes and eggs. However, there were certain things Carraway said the restaurant missed. “They don’t have hash browns,” she said. “They don’t have grits or oatmeal.” My personal favorite is Le Loir dans la Théière, or the mouse in the teapot in English. It features basic brunch staples with a European influence. Le Loir dans la Théière, a small poster-covered restaurant on the right bank in the Jewish district, had a line stretching out the door to the third storefront down the street.

croissants and soft-boiled eggs in their shell. All were served with typical French salted butter and jellies. It was the first time I ate a breakfast so filling in France. The best part is these two restaurants are literally down the street from each other. Their lines could probably intersect on a good day. Like I have said before, despite the stereotype that the French don’t like Americans, the U.S. is trendy here. Brunch is the newest installment. “People like the novelty of brunch, because it’s American,” Carraway said. “They like the novelty of a big breakfast.” @AudreyNLP

Exhibit to show student photos BY ALLISON WAGNER @Allmwagn



Jerry Uelsmann and his wife, Maggie Taylor, speak about their photographic artwork Wednesday in Franklin Hall. The College of Arts and Sciences granted the Distinguished Alumni award to Uelsmann. Uelsmann earned M.S. and M.F.A degrees from IU in 1960.

The Giving Back to Africa Student Association will launch “Beta Histoire,” a month-long photo exhibit, from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the IU Art Museum. The exhibit will showcase photographs taken by children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and photographs taken by students in Monroe County. Fogarty and Friends jazz trio will play during the opening of the exhibit as well. “Even though the DRC is on the other side of the world, the exhibit shows similarities between youth in the U.S. and youth in the DRC,” GBASA president Sarah Baulac said. “It’s important to be educated on these likenesses to feel

more connected to the development of youth leaders in the DRC.” GBASA educates IU students about political, social and economic issues in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, she said. “We hold events to spread awareness about what Giving Back to Africa, the Bloomington-based nonprofit, is doing to further the education of the youth there and fundraise to support the non-profit’s mission,” Baulac said. Through project-based learning, Giving Back to Africa is dedicated to educating young people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to become agents of change in their communities, according to its website. The process of GBASA’s first art exhibit began in 2011, Baulac said. The

organization sent disposable cameras to Giving Back to Africa’s partner school in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. “Students at Centre Salisa took pictures of their lives,” Baulac said. Once the cameras were returned, the members developed the pictures and placed them in an exhibit at the museum, she said. “This year, we’ve expanded the exhibit by inviting students in Monroe County to submit pictures of their lives in response to the original pictures from DRC,” Baulac said. “We had over 20 photo submissions.” She said the photographs in the exhibit focus on what the children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo see in their daily lives. “Participants can expect

to see an interesting juxtaposition between the two cultures,” she said. The photos were taken from the point of view of students in Monroe County and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, though some of the photos may feature students. Giving Back to Africa is dedicated to making its vision a reality by working with other groups and people who share its philosophy of investing in human capabilities by pairing with the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, according to its website. “It’s always a great feeling to work with people who are passionate about similar issues,” Baulac said. “We have a small group, but we’re all very connected and working hard toward bettering education in DRC.”

weekend PAGE 12 | APRIL 3, 2014

An epic of biblical proportions ‘Noah’ Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins B+ In the story of “Noah,” what’s thrown underneath the flood is not only humans but also humanism. What hopped on the ark is not only selflessness but selfishness. Thus, instead of depicting how Noah builds the giant boat, director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) lays particular emphasis on how Noah makes his decisions — a man’s moral intensity, his struggle against God’s will and man’s will. After the first murder, mankind developed into two collateral lines: the wicked line of Cain and the virtuous line of Seth. As the Cainites embrace their vices, God decides to purge them. Noah (played by Russell Crowe), the last line of Sethians, is chosen by God to save the innocent animals by squeezing them into a ship. This is the point where you can witness the naissance of a huge, jubilant zoo containing birds, amphibians and reptiles. Along with the animals, there are some people struggling to join. Noah’s mission is simple — trying to keep everything alive but the human beings. You can tell Tubal Cain (the King of Mankind, played by Ray Winstone) is desperate to pay anything for admission to Noah’s arc, but a ticket on Noah’s ark is priceless because of his genuine motivation. “Noah” mirrors Aronofsky’s idiosyncratic style, alongside his staunch commitment to sumptuous cinematography, his master play is to showcase his

story by sharpening the conflict between characters. The conflict between Noah and Tubal Cain serves as a concealed analogy to reflect the dialectic between God and humanity. Noah’s pious conviction drives him to the brink of isolation. As he found out the weakness registered in mankind, including his family and himself, he takes some extreme measures to ensure the extinction of the human race. His action incandesces the dialectic between obedience of ruthless creator and kindness of his human heart. Juxtaposing CGI spectacle with the narrative embroidery Aronofsky composed, “Noah” sings most vibrantly for the allencompassing fetishism of the camera. Within Aronofsky’s cinematography, the environments are not merely subjects to be grappled with. Therefore, we see the pathos woven into the close-ups of the catastrophe, human’s fear and desperation crystallize in extravagant imagery. More flamboyant than the scenery is the electrifying performances in the film. Crowe is at his most meticulous, fusing himself with Noah’s paradoxical personality. Even a blink of his eyes oozes with mercy and compassion. Yet his faith in justice is never punctuated by sentiment. Jennifer Connelly truly infuses the feminine and maternal instinct into her role as Naameh. Her voice and tone pinpoints the beauty of origin back at that time.
