IU looks to rebound with win at Purdue By Alden Woods aldwoods@indiana.edu | @acw9293

In Tuesday’s press conference before a trip to Purdue, IU freshman guard James Blackmon Jr. was asked if the Boilermakers reminded him of another opponent. He didn’t have to think too hard about his answer. “Georgetown.” That happens to be the secondbiggest team IU has played this season, just behind Maryland. The Hoyas rank 13th nationally in average height, per kenpom.com. That statistic takes the average height of a team’s players and weights it according to minutes played. Georgetown rode its size to an overtime win against IU just more than a month ago. Purdue might look to do the same. The Boilermakers rank 23rd in average height. By comparison, the Hoosiers are 198th in average height.

The two almost never play together, but could break out an oversized lineup against the small-ball Hoosiers. That’s how IU’s practicing, at least. “We’re just going to go out there expecting them to play two big men,” Blackmon said. “Just go out in practice and prepare for that.” Even beyond its two centers, Purdue likes to play big. The Boilermakers’ shortest starter is 6-foot-4 guard Jon Octeus, and only one rotation player — 5-foot-10 backup guard P.J. Thompson — stands shorter than that.

New bill could require background checks for ride-hailing drivers By Brian Gamache bgamache@indiana.edu | @brgamache

Proposed legislation to improve rider safety for taxi and ride-hailing passengers passed committee on a split vote in the Indiana General Assembly on Tuesday. The bill, authored by Rep. Christina Hale, D-Indianapolis, would require all taxi and ridehailing drivers to pass a background check every seven years. “In some cities in Indiana, you could serve your time in prison and walk out the next morning to drive a taxi,” Hale said. Hale cited safety concerns as her motivation to introduce the bill. “I was motivated by different incidents of violence,” Hale said, describing situations where taxi

riders were, or could have been, taken advantage of. “As a passenger, I’ve been in that vulnerable situation myself,” Hale said. If passed, the bill would go into effect July 1, 2015 and would affect all taxi and ride-hailing services. No statewide laws currently exist requiring background checks for taxi or ride-hailing drivers, Hale said. “I could serve my time in jail and walk out in the morning and be driving a cab in the evening,” Hale said. When asked about exploring further regulations beyond safety for ride-hailing, Hale responded quickly. “I’ve been looking into all of that,” she said. “I’m involved in another bill involving insurance.”

Fraternity directors share stories By Brett Dworski bdworski@indiana.edu | @BrettD93

This bill aims to introduce statewide safety regulations. Les Gyger, a manager for Bloomington-based Yellow Cab Taxi, said the new legislation is the industry standard. “I have no problem with the bill,” Gyger said. “Mostly every company is already doing that.” Gyger said he supported taxi and ride-hailing driver background checks. “If I’m putting my daughter in a car with you, I want to know I can trust you,” Gyger said. “We got to do everything in our power to protect you kids, especially in a college town.” Yellow Cab Taxi has been family-owned and operated in Bloomington since 1919, Gyger said. He has served as the company’s manager for 14 years. His dad managed the business for 30 years prior to Gyger taking over.

Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are relative newcomers in the transportation market. Ride-hailing services are not traditional taxi companies and instead use apps to connect independent drivers to riders. Uber launched in 2009 and now has a worldwide presence in more than 200 cities, according to the company’s website. Uber arrived in Bloomington in fall 2014. “These services are flourishing in college and university towns,” Hale said. She added she wants students to be safe in late-night environments. IU sophomore Patrick Phelan said he has had positive experiences with Uber.

Keb’ Mo’ brings blues music to Buskirk-Chumley By Adam Smith

IU fraternity house director Chris Drossos Jr. spoke with a heavy heart as he explained what it was like working with the young men of Sigma Nu Sept. 11, 2001. Drossos said Sept. 11 was such a profound day for his relationship with the men at Sigma Nu because of how they responded. “That morning we all sat around the breakfast table watching TV completely in awe, disillusioned that this could be happening here on our soil,” he said. “A lot of the boys wanted to talk about it.” Drossos has worked with fraternities for more than 20 years. Although he is currently with Alpha Tau Omega, he spent his previous years with TAE-GYUN KIM | IDS Sigma Nu and Acacia. Chris Drossos, house director of Alpha Tau Omega, speaks about how he manages the fraternity Monday at the Alpha Tau Omega house. Drossos has been working as a

The Buskirk-Chumley Theater was filled with people from across Indiana gathered to hear blues music Tuesday night. Taking the stage with just a guitar and his voice, Keb’ Mo’ began his “Evening with the Keb’ Mo’ Band” with a solo performance of his song, “Every Morning.” Part of the way through his second song, a bass guitarist and drummer had joined Keb’ Mo’, and for his third song, a keyboardist took the stage. Keb’ Mo’ kept the conversation at the show to a minimum, playing one song after another. When Keb’ Mo’ did chat with the crowd, though, he kept

it playful. “Is there a bar out there?” he asked, “No, I’m not thirsty, it just tells me how to play the set.” Tuesday night’s show is one of the stops on an extensive tour supporting Keb’ Mo’s latest album, “BLUESamericana”. The album was released in early 2014. Already a three-time Grammy winner, this latest album’s nominations for the 57th Grammys could increase that number. The album has been nominated for best Americana album as well as best engineered non-classical album. On top of those, the album’s single, “The Old Me Better,” has been nominated for best SEE BLUES, PAGE 6

Camp Kesem helps kids cope By Annie Garau agarau@indiana.edu

From an outsider’s perspective, Camp Kesem would seem like a completely normal summer camp. Children would be running around the cabins, making a mess in the cafeteria, playing capture the flag and sitting around bonfires. Exhausted counselors would be laughing and yelling, and the uninformed visitor wouldn’t realize that Kesem is, in fact, so much more than an ordinary week in the woods. All of the campers participating in the nationwide program have two things in common: they aren’t paying one cent to be there, and they have a parent who has been diagnosed with cancer. Since its founding in 2000, the student-run camp has provided children dealing with their parents’ cancer a free week of summer camp. It’s not therapy. It’s simply a time for kids to be kids. “When you hear that you’re going to go to a camp because your parent is sick, you think everybody’s going to be sad and just talk about how our parents are dying,” said Abi Yates, former camper and current codirector of IU’s Kesem chapter. “But it’s not like that at all. The whole point is to forget that things might not be that great at home and realize that it’s okay to just be a kid and have fun.” The nonprofit recruits college students to volunteer as counselors. IU hosted its first 23 campers in 2005. The University chapter recently announced the kick-off of its 11th season, in which it plans to welcome 160 children, ages 6 to 16, to two sessions of camp. “It’s a population of kids that often gets overlooked,” junior Andy Barnett said of the 3 million children


Camp Kesem counselors bond with campers during their week at the camp. Children who attend Camp Kesem have a parent who has been diagnosed with cancer.

in the United States whose lives have been changed by a parent’s cancer. “Some of these kids have had to grow up too fast. Kesem tries to give them as normal an experience as possible and a support system that understands what they’re going through.” The counselors give much more than one week to the organization. IU group members meet constantly throughout the year to plan activities, nail down logistics and find ways to raise the $90,000 needed each summer. They also serve as friends and role models whenever their campers need them. “My dad passed away when I was 16,” Yates said. “Without Kesem, I would’ve felt like I had no one to go to because none of my friends at school understood or knew what to say.” When her family had a celebration of life for her father, Yates was happily surprised when 10 of her

counselors arrived to pay their respects. “It gave me so much strength because they were there for me even though I only see them for one week every year,” Yates said. “I was able to go to camp right after he passed away, and everyone there could say, ‘It’s okay, we all know how hard it is.’” The camp supports not only the campers; parents are often equally grateful for Kesem’s work. When all of their money is sucked into medical expenses, it can be extremely difficult to squeeze fun into the budget. “The IU kids just pour their hearts on these campers,” said Gary Gettelfinger, whose two children participate in Kesem each year. “We’ve been able to take my kids on amazing vacations all over the world, and every time we ask them what their favorite part of the summer was, they say ‘Camp Kesem’ right away.”

It was Gettelfinger’s first wife Sharon, who passed away in 2007, who originally suggested her two children attend the camp. When their daughter, Olivia, first arrived at camp in 2009, she was already coping with the loss of her mother. Looking back on years spent at camp, she remembers seeing three shooting stars in one night. “I knew it was a sign from my mom saying, ‘I’m so happy that you love Kesem as much as I would,’” Olivia said. “Whenever a parent is diagnosed with cancer or is fighting cancer or dies from cancer, it creates a big hole in your heart, and Camp Kesem has been the only thing that has been able to help fill that hole for me.” Counselors, parents and campers alike describe the camp as unlike any other experience. It’s appropriate, they say, because the translation for the Hebrew word “kesem” is “magic.”

Gregory Ang, a sophomore exchange student, said he felt terrified before performing his ukulele set at Willkie Residence Center’s Coffee House Open Mic Night on Thursday. “I only started feeling comfortable after my last song,” he said, laughing. Although Ang was nervous, students were attentive to his performance. Some clapped along during his rendition of “Stand By Me,” and two students recorded his songs from their seats. The open mic night provided a small setting for performers and students to gather and interact. Students were seated casually and offered refreshments before the acts began. Eight acts were scheduled to perform, including a rapper, ukulele player and other instrumental and vocal performers. Junior Fafi Banda said this was his first time at an event like this. Banda lives in Willkie, but said he usually does not know about events like this on campus and that they should be better promoted to students. “I think more people would come if they knew about it,” he said. This open mic night is the premier event for the Willkie Coffee House series. Junior Cole Zook is a community manager at Willkie. “It’s the first one for this semester — actually ever,” he said. The Willkie Coffee House events began this semester, and Zook said they plan to organize one each month.

When planning this event, Zook said they felt an open mic night fit the bill because it went with their coffee house vibe. Zook said each community leader is in charge of one floor. They plan two events for their floor each month and one collaborative event. These events are open to everyone, he said. “We take anybody, as long as you’re a student,” he said. The first act, Allan Kambindama, rapped an original song entitled “Help Me.” Before he performed, he explained the song was about social integration. It was his first time performing since he came to the United States. Kambindama is an international Willkie resident. His performance was met with applause from the crowd of students. He said the students’ presence made the performance more “risk-free.” “It’s as much of a dialogue as it is a performance,” he said. “You get feedback, get appreciation.” Banda said that, for Willkie residents, these events promote creativity in students and allow them to practice their talents in a smaller venue. “It’s something to start off with,” he said. With events like these, Zook said, residents can feel acclimated to and affiliated with something within a residence hall. He said it was a community-builder. “It allows the residents to know that they have a support system and that they have a community,” Zook said. “It allows a sense of (not being) alone while living in a residence hall.”

IU receives more tech grants than ever before From IDS reports

IU researchers won more than $20 million in federal grants for information technology programs in 2014, according to an IU press release. Awards given to researchers will be used for further advancements in the ability to analyze and calculate large datasets — a prominent challenge in the IT world. The National Science Foundation awarded the largest IU grant of $6.6 million to the Pervasive Technology Institute. NSF awarded this grant for the PTI, led by its executive director Craig Stewart, to create the foundations for the first science and engineering cloud called Jetstream.

This cloud system will be designed to allow students and researchers constant access to computing resources. During the next five years, IU is expected to receive about $11 million from the NSF to create the program. Technology programs on campus received five other grants alongside these in 2014. “IU has grown in national stature as an innovative IT leader and partner of choice with other leading universities,” Brad Wheeler, IU Vice President for Information Technology, said in a press release. “These large IT research grants and many others demonstrate the growing technology research prowess at IU.” Maia Cochran

Pro-life bills proposed Daniel Metz dsmetz@indiana.edu | @DanielSMetz

There has been a big push by Indiana legislators to regulate abortion in Indiana this year. Several pieces of legislation were introduced to the Indiana General Assembly for the 2015 legislative session that would regulate abortions and clinics that offer the procedure to women. Senate Bill 334 and House Bill 1228, if passed, would prohibit abortions if the woman seeking abortion is doing so to be selective of the sex of the fetus or if it is known the fetus has Down syndrome. SB334 was authored with the help of Sen. Travis Holdman, who has authored abortion-regulating legislation in past legislative sessions, and Sens. Liz Brown and Amanda Banks. Senate Bill 546, which was also authored by Holdman along with Sen. Mark Messmer, amends the definition of an abortion clinic, requires certain medical waivers in the case of an abortion and includes reporting requirements for abortions that are performed using an abortion-inducing drug. One final bill, House Bill 1546, which was authored by Rep. Don Lehe, prohibits a person from aiding or assisting a minor in obtaining an abortion without the consent of the minor’s legal guardian. Dr. Virginia J. Vitzthum, a senior research scientist at the Kinsey Institute and a Professor of Anthropology at IU, gave a commented on the push towards abortion regulation. “Reproductive health care in Indiana could be improved,” Vitzthum said. “By assuring that every woman, young to old and from every income level, has affordable access to gynecological and breast exams, safe and effective contraception and safe abortion options suited to her personal and medical needs.”

Coinciding with this new campaign to regulate abortions was the 42nd March for Life, an annual pro-life demonstration in Washington, D.C. that occurs on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. In the Roe v. Wade decision, the Supreme Court made abortions legal in all 50 states. The decision was made Jan. 22, 1973. In response to the march, Indiana Sen. Dan Coats issued a statement in regards to his position on the issue. “As a father and grandfather, I know a life is a precious gift that must be protected from the moment of conception,” Coats said in a press release. “This conviction is why I join thousands of Hoosiers in supporting the sanctity of every human life and commend their efforts as they march in Washington, D.C.” Most likely due to the new party balance in Congress, which is now predominantly Republican, there has been a heavy surge of legislation aimed to regulate and reduce the prevalence of abortions that has been introduced into Congress. In this legislative session, there have been no fewer than 16 bills and resolutions that have been introduced into Congress that address the issue of abortion, 11 of which explicitly aim to either cut federal funding to institutions that provide abortions to women or regulate women’s ability to receive abortions. In April 2014, Gov. Mike Pence released a letter voicing his support for a piece of federal legislation that had been introduced to Congress earlier in the year. The bill would have implemented a federal ban on abortions of fetuses after 20 weeks. “It is for these reasons that I wholeheartedly support and join you in urging Senate leadership to allow a vote on this important piece of prolife legislation,” Pence said in

“Reproductive health care in Indiana could be improved by assuring that every woman young to old and from every income level, has affordable access to gynecological exams, safe and effective contraception and safe abortion options suited to her personal and medical needs.” Virginia J. Vitzthum, Kinsey Institute Senior Research Scientist and Professor of Anthropology

the letter. In 2011, the most recent year that complete census of abortion information was documented, 110,800 of the 1,287,120 Indiana women that were of reproductive age became pregnant. Seventy six percent of those pregnancies resulted in live births and 9 percent resulted in induced abortions, equating to 9,340 women having obtained abortions. In Indiana there were only 12 abortion providers, 10 of which were clinics. Ninetythree percent of Indiana counties had no abortion clinics, and 61 percent of Indiana women lived in these counties. There are also a number of regulations that are specific to Indiana when it comes to receiving an abortion. According to the Guttmacher Institute, an organization that aims to improve women’s reproductive health, a woman must receive state-directed counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion. Additionally, the parent of a minor must consent before an abortion can be given. Public funding is available for the procedure only in cases when a woman’s life or health is in danger or in cases of rape or incest.

Corporate money will stay out of mayoral elections By Neal Earley nearley@indiana.edu

Just after the five-year anniversary of Citizen United, in which the U.S. Supreme Court decided corporations, labor unions and political action committees (PAC) could spend unlimited cash on elections, the issue seems more perverse than ever. All three of Bloomington’s mayoral candidates have said they are against corporate campaign donations. John Hamilton, the first candidate to announce his candidacy for mayor, issued a challenge in a press release statement calling for his fellow candidates to not take corporate donations. “Just because it is legal doesn’t mean we should do it,” Hamilton said. “Bloomington is a progressive city, and we should keep direct corporate cash out of our elections.” Both of his opponents, who said they are strong supporters of overturning the Citizen United decision, accepted the challenge Hamilton issued. “I already wasn’t planning to take corporate money,” Ne-

her said in an email. “It was so obvious, it never occurred to me that anyone would need to issue a ‘challenge’ about it.” John Linnemeier, who is currently out of the country, said he welcomed Hamilton’s challenge. “The idea that money is speech and corporations are people is repugnant to me,” Linnemeier said in an email. “The Citizens United decision exacerbates a situation where lobbyists are practically writing our laws for us already.” It seems the candidates’ thoughts on campaign finance reform are timely. In his Jan. 20 State of the Union address, President Obama mentioned the corrupting influence of what he called “dark money” in politics. The debate over campaign finance reform has taken place nationally with Democrats in congress criticizing the influence of particular donors, such as Charles and David Koch. But whether corporate, PAC or union money corrupt the political process, Americans widely believe it does. According to a Associated

Press National Constitution Center poll, more than 8 in 10 Americans support limits on political donations by groups. But it is unclear from a local perspective what can be done about reversing Citizens United. In 2012, the Bloomington City Council passed resolution 12-09, which supports an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would limit corporate political donations. Neher, who has represented the 5th District on the city council since 2012, voted in favor of the resolution, which was signed by Mayor Mark Kruzan. Though Neher said local elections see little in the way of donations from corporations and unions, he plans on running his campaign on principals. Hamilton said he wants Bloomington to become a model for how elections are run. “I think there is a lot of work to be done to improve elections across Indiana, across the country,” Hamilton said. “I’m focused on the Bloomington election. I’m trying to do that election well.”


Indiana Coalitions Director of the Convention of States Marty Wood explains how Article 5 and the convention can restrict the power of the federal government to stop the growth of national debt Tuesday at Monroe County Public Library.

Indiana conservatives call for Convention of States By Neal Earley njearley@indiana.edu

Six months ago, Marty Wood had no interest in politics. His said his priorities were elsewhere. But Tuesday night, Wood stood in front of a crowd of his fellow conservatives at the Monroe County Public Library to convince them why the U.S. Constitution needs to be amended. “For years I was like most people,” Wood said in an interview before his presentation. “I did not get involved in politics. I had a career. I had a family. I was moving around the country with my job.” If he did not before, Wood got his political fix Tuesday night as his presentation was followed by critical questions from fellow conservatives of Monroe County, many of whom were skeptical of his proposal. Wood, a graduate of Purdue University, is the director of the Indiana Coalition for the Convention of States Project, a group that is looking to amend the U.S. Constitution. The process in which the Wood’s group is proposing is through an Article 5 convention of states. Article 5 states that if two-thirds of the states vote to agree, then a convention of the states can take place to discuss amending the Constitution. If any amendment is approved by three-fourths of the states, then it is adopted. But Wood said he is

not proposing any specific amendments, just a convention of the states. “This project is not proposing anything,” Wood said. “This is all about getting the states in agreement and moving forward to call a convention of states.” But Wood said he would like to see amendments proposed that address term limits, fiscal responsibility and the overall limitation of the power of government. Robert Hall, founder of Grassroots Conservatives located in Monroe County, invited Wood to speak in front of his group. Hall said his group is made up of constitutional conservatives, libertarians, Republicans and independents. Some of those who helped organized Tuesday night’s event said they were inspired to get involved with the project after reading radio talk show host Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments,” where he proposed an Article 5 convention. “I’ve encouraged them to read the book, to learn about it,” Hall said of Levin’s book. “Everybody hears about it in a different way, but that was my inspiration.” In addition to his leadership of Grassroots conservatives, Hall also serves as a district captain with the Convention of States Project. The National Chapter of the Convention of States Project is headed by Michael P. Farris and Mark Meckler, founder of Tea

Party Patriots. The meeting took place in a mostly full room 1B at MCPL. Hall said 70 people RSVP’d prior to the event. Following Wood’s presentation was a rowdy question-and-answer session where attendees were skeptical of Wood’s group’s proposal. Among the concerns by those who attended were those of possible hijacking of a convention of states by liberals and progressives and the fact Congress might not follow any new amendments. Many people at the event doubted Congress would follow the proposed amendments if they were adopted. So far none of the 27 amendments to the Constitution have been passed through a convention of the states, but rather through congressional vote. But Wood is hopeful about his group’s plan. “Well, we’re shooting for 2016,” Wood said. “And it all comes down to we the people. People have to pick up and determine if whether they’re happy with the way things have been going on, and I would say based on the approval ratings of the Congress being in the teens, they’re not happy with what’s been going on.” Wood, who currently lives in Fishers, Ind., said he only recently learned of the Article 5 convention and wished he became involved sooner. “I’m embarrassed I haven’t gotten involved before,” he said.

Pence announces intentions of ‘Just IN’ From IDS reports

Gov. Mike Pence said Tuesday he will be “clarifying” what his “Just IN” news site will be doing soon. Documents obtained by the Indianapolis Star showed a detailed plan to have state press secretaries write news stories and distribute them through the site. The Indianapolis Star published a story about “Just IN” Monday.

Pence discussed his administration’s plans to start a news site Tuesday and said he would be providing more information about the plan soon. “Reports that this was intended to be a news agency I think just represent an understandable misunderstanding based on some internal communications that I read about in the press,” Pence told the Indianapolis

Star on Tuesday. “My understanding is that the website that has become a source of controversy was simply to have a one-stop shopping website for press releases and information,” he told the Indianapolis Star. “It’s meant to be a resource, not a news source, and we’ll be clarifying that in the days ahead.” Hannah Alani

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s crystal meth CNN reported a drone that was carrying six pounds of crystal meth literally fell from the sky last Tuesday evening. The unmanned aircraft crashed in Mexico near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. An

Tigers come roaring back

Mike Pence wants a Russia today

KEVIN JACKSON is a senior in English literature.

In a statement that would confuse our caveman ancestors, India’s Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar happily said Tuesday that the country’s plan to grow the tiger population is working. In just seven years, the tiger population has risen from 1,411 to 2,226. India has struggled for years to stop the country’s deforestation problem, which has led to the loss of the tigers’ natural habitat. Indian officials have also been working to stop the booming trade of exotic animal parts and have made efforts to slow poaching of these majestic animals. In fact, poachers and those who buy tiger carcasses for use in traditional Chinese medicine were a major factor in the population decline from 100,000 tigers at the beginning of the 20th century to 1,411 in 2008. Though tigers may be beautiful and interesting animals, you’re probably wondering at this point how this could possibly be your problem. So let’s forget for just a moment the moral side of understanding we as a species do not have a claim to destroy any and all things we see fit. The true reason the rise in the tiger population is such fantastic news is one word: biodiversity. Biodiversity is how many different kinds of organisms live in a specific ecosystem. The reason this is so important is we have absolutely no idea how a certain organism’s existence affects the entirety of an ecosystem. A perfect example would be the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park. Before their reintroduction, wolves had been absent from Yellowstone for about 70 years. As such, deer populations had exploded due to the fact they had very few natural enemies without wolves to hunt them. As wolves were reintroduced, the deer changed their behavior. They no longer grazed in valleys or near riverbanks where they could easily be trapped and eaten by a pack of wolves. Due to this, trees began to flourish as fewer deer were eating their saplings. More trees meant more beaver dams, and more beaver dams meant an environment better-suited to ducks and amphibians, and these animals saw an increase in population as well. However, the biggest change was something many people have a hard time wrapping their heads around. Not only did the wolves change the behavior of the animals in Yellowstone, they changed the behavior of the rivers. The wolves ate deer, which ate trees and shrubbery around the banks of rivers. Without deer to eat these plants, rivers eroded less. They began to meander less as well, meaning the rivers became more fixed in their course. This is exactly why we need to be excited about the increasing number of tigers in India. One seemingly insignificant change in an ecosystem can have a huge effect. A poacher may look at a tiger and see an easy paycheck, but he should be seeing the innumerable organisms that revolve around that predator.

The most dangerous game WE SAY: Obama was right to veto penalties Among the sweeping domestic policy proposals announced at the State of the Union address Jan. 20, one foreign policy issue, Iran, managed to fly a bit under the radar. For about 12 hours. With Secretary of State John Kerry, a group of European governments and China deep in negotiations regarding Iran’s nuclear program, the president asked Congress not to impede progress with a new wave of sanctions. A few hours later, Speaker of the House John Boehner announced he was inviting Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress without the approval of the White House. The prime minister is in the midst of a tough challenge by Israeli hardliners and is sure to try to score points by calling for a tougher approach toward Iran. The New York Times reported that, despite President Obama’s veto warning, Boehner “told a private meeting of GOP lawmakers that Congress would proceed on further penalties against Iran.” To fully understand the danger of such a decision, we must first understand the global context under which the Obama administration

and its European colleagues are negotiating. Last Wednesday, a group of foreign ministers representing Germany, the United Kingdom, France and the European Union wrote a piece featured in the Washington Post, preaching patience for the American electorate and pleading for restraint from Congress. These diplomats and the U.S. State Department see current Iran President Hassan Rouhani as the best chance the international community has to strike a deal. Rouhani has not been shy in his openness to cooperate with the West and has boldly confronted Iranian hard-liners — a risky political gamble on his part. This provides Western governments a legitimate political opening, albeit a narrow one, to achieve substantial progress with Iran. Evidence of this opportunity is apparent in the interim nuclear deal struck with Rouhani in November 2013, which put an end to Iranian nuclear enrichment entirely. Any hope of international reconciliation with Iran lies with these current talks. However, as with any negotiation of this magnitude, talks are incredibly

delicate and will inevitably require significant sacrifice by both sides. It is the latter of which Boehner and his supporters, deep in the delusion of American exceptionalism abroad, see as particularly concerning. To many in Congress, including some Democrats, sanctions are more political than pragmatic. What they don’t understand, or choose to ignore, are the political realities of today’s global environment. Further sanctions, a harsher tone from Israel or exploitation of recent events in Argentina give Iran incentive to back out of any possible deal and save whatever face it can with its citizens. The Editorial Board not only stands behind a potential veto by President Obama, but also urges Congress to refrain from needlessly asserting itself into such delicate negotiations. The Editorial Board understands Speaker Boehner’s wish to reaffirm his power after the president’s bold steps in recent months, but threatening nuclear talks in order to fulfill this wish is irresponsible and dangerous.


Getting stuck in a nostalgic moment Nostalgia is one of many intriguing human conditions. As I try to understand the concept of nostalgia and why our society is so drawn to the past, I continue to draw a lot of questions that a simple Google search can’t answer. When did we start romanticizing the notion that the past is somehow better than the present moment? And why are we so fixated on replaying the past, as if we are somehow going to relive or change the memories that we have already made? As I think about nostalgia, I am reminded of Woody Allen’s film, “Midnight in Paris.” The entire movie romanticizes the notion of nostalgia as we

are transported back to the 1920s with a protagonist who is desperately trying to escape his bitter reality. As the movie’s plot thickens, we begin to realize the protagonist’s nostalgia is simply a denial of his painful present. He is unable to move on from the past, wasting away his time from the now. Apparently, humans aren’t the only ones catching the nostalgia bug. Turning the page back to 1800s, we are now being reminded of a heartwarming story about a man’s best friend, Greyfriars Bobby. Here’s how the story supposedly goes. When his master passed away, this dog spent the rest of his life, 14 years, sitting on his master’s

grave. Though his loyalty is truly touching, this dog could have been living his life. He could have been waddling around and shaking his tail. He could have been eating Scooby Snacks and playing frisbee in the park or rolling around in the grass. Instead, he got stuck in a moment. And so did society when it heard this story. This dog’s bark left a lasting impression, as his tale was made into a book and subsequently a movie. This dog even has a bar named after him. Seriously though, nothing says drink up like doggy depression. In the end, Google wasn’t able to adequately answer my questions about nostalgia.

KAJAL SINGH is a junior in policy analysis.

Instead, I decided to come up with some answers of my own. It’s okay to occasionally revisit moments as long as you recognize what has passed is gone forever. You see, we are going to have successes and we are going to have failures, but our true glory is we will continue to live our lives no matter what happens. So I guess what I’m trying to say here is, if you too have been hit with the nostalgia bug, maybe it’s time that you stop living your life like it’s some sort of on-demand movie. Stop hitting the rewind button. Instead, just press play. kajsingh@indiana.edu

In 2005, the Russian government felt a need to improve Mother Russia’s image on the outskirts of its borders. It decided to do so by establishing public relations that would go on to become a Russia Today, the cable and satellite news channel funded by the Russian federal budget. The channel offers news, documentaries, talk shows and everything else you’d expect of a news channel — all multilingual and specifically targeted to audiences outside of Russia. There’s just one thing. It’s also one of the best-funded propaganda machines and a quasi-official mouthpiece of the Russian government that masquerades as real news. So with that in mind, it looks like Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Russian President Vladimir Putin might have a lot more in common than we thought. According to documents obtained from Pence, he has approved a plan to start working on a state-run media outlet supported by taxpayer money. The news outlet would provide stories about Indiana and the occasional breaking news about Pence and his administration. The name? “Just IN,” of course. And the website/“news outlet” will be headed by former Star reporter Bill McCleery. Documents obtained by the Star suggest the government-run news outlet will create its own stories in addition to being an aggregator for state press secretaries to post their totally objective information about what the Pence administration is doing. The site will also “break news” and have exclusive coverage stories relating to Indiana. Perhaps shadiest of all, the total cost of Pence’s new project to taxpayers is unclear, though the Star estimates it could cost almost $100,000. Pence & Co. have been mum about its total cost. It’s interesting to hear conservatives, many like Pence himself, decry wasteful spending and the evils of big government on the floor of the Statehouse only to turn around and see them push the very things they rail against. I guess it must not be wasteful spending or big government if and when the man that’s pushing for a state-run news agency wants to run for president and can use it as an arm to provide more #AwesomeContent from the people who brought you #HonestToGoodnessIndiana as a tourism slogan. Today, press releases — tomorrow, a list of “25 Reasons Mike Pence is Totally Qualified to Run for President” featuring Taylor Swift GIFs, à la John Boehner. It would be funny how desperate Pence is to be in the running for the 2016 presidential election if what he’s doing wasn’t so insidious. Don’t expect to see too many unflattering stories about the governor on his shiny new press shop — like how he’s trying to outflank Democratic Superintendent Glenda Ritz. The fact that we’ll be bankrolling a state propaganda machine — err, news outlet — that will compete with real media institutions to influence what we read about Pence is pretty Orwellian. It’s brazenly Putinesque. And it is absolutely absurd. edsalas@indiana.edu

European Union to collapse? CAMERON GERST is a junior in finance.

makes a man want to have sex with her, then that’s the man’s responsibility. We cannot continue to tell women they need to constantly adjust their movements, words, actions and clothing in order to divert the male gaze. If leggings are not sexually attracting a man, then something else would. It is a man’s responsibility to rightfully handle his sexual thoughts and actions. A woman’s clothing should not be responsible.

On Monday, an important general election concluded with new Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras taking his oath. The result has and is causing anxiety within the modern political experiment we know as the European Union. In my mind, never in history has such a grand, bold experiment been undertaken. It’s not just that the European Union is a vast alliance that houses several different and historically opposed cultures. It’s the very structure of the system itself that is, in its own way, the boldest element. The system binds countries together in ways unheard of in other parts of the world. But the system works only with mutual respect and trust. The massive economic unity and intertwined financial systems of the various countries in the EU necessitate cooperation and problematize rogue states. Greece has the potential to be one of these rogue states, and it could bring the whole system down or at least to a tumultuous, screeching halt. Since the collapse of the Greek economy and the implosion of its public finances in 2008 and 2012, Greece has had to swallow a hard pill. Austerity, pension cuts, rising interest rates, a recession and a bailout package — €240 billion in total — ballooned an already large public debt and deficit. The bailout package came from the European Central Bank, European Union and the International Monetary Fund. With the austerity in full swing — largely demanded by the bailout creditors — and the repayment plan underway, public opinion in Greece began to blame its creditors for its problems. To put it candidly, Greece doesn’t want to pay its debt anymore. The country seems to believe the old saying “the borrower is a slave to the lender,” and it quite vocally doesn’t want to be a slave anymore. That sentiment propelled Tsipras to the prime minister’s office this week. He is the leader of the Radical Coalition of the Left, a group that has promised to renegotiate Greece’s bailout repayment plan. This is code for debt forgiveness, and it’s something the rest of the EU is not going to take lightly. The problem is if Greece decides not to pay its debts, there is going to be a real debate about whether or not it deserves, and if it legally can, stay within the EU. The bailout money it received and the debt it owes largely belong to the other member states of the EU. We all know state money is taxpayer money. So what essentially would be happening is German, French, Italian, Portuguese and other citizens from around the EU would be sending billions of euros — for free — to the ailing coffers of a mismanaged country. Sound fair? I don’t think so, either. In fact, I think that it’s borderline criminal. If I don’t pay my debts, the government can take my house. And it would be right to do so. Debt is a legal contract that needs be enforced and upheld if we are to live in a just and functioning society. My hope is Greece will come to its senses. If not, it may be looking at a boot from the EU. And if that happens, then it won’t take much for others to falter as well — like a giant political and economic game of Jenga.





Nude isn’t neutral, it’s biased

The Article 5 Convention of States

Think of the color nude. It’s a soft, delicate shade that blends rather than yells, like those robust reds and obnoxious oranges. It is not calming like a deep indigo or a forest green, but blank, like an untouched canvas. Its creamy base of yellows and whites with brown undertones make you think of the color your latte turns once the whipped cream has dissolved. Its synonyms are flesh or skin. And it’s a lie. When used to describe a color, nude makes an automatic association to other words like nudity, neutral and naked. Needless to say, the word itself makes you think of skin tone. I’m going to be quite blunt with you here: not everyone has the same skin tone. The “flesh” color you just imagined in your head probably only describes the skin of someone who is white. For an industry that claims to know colors, the fashion world fails to understand how limiting it is to describe off-white beige as “nude.” This exclusive category of color bars people who would never use the peach, originally “flesh” but renamed in 1962, Crayon to draw a selfportrait. I would grit my teeth whenever I worked my summer job and had to sell “nude” bras that would match only the complexion of someone like Emma Stone to women of all races. Many times the reaction when I showed our limited selection to any woman who wasn’t pasty white would be a wrinkled nose and the following question: “Do you have any other neutral colors?” I shook my head sadly every time. I distinctly remember the moment I recognized the privilege “nude” gives to white women like myself. In my junior year of high school, I was in my marching band’s color guard. The costumes that year for the flag twirlers were fitted purple dresses with sparkles galore. Think Rapunzel’s dress from “Tangled” but flashier.

MADISON HOGAN is a sophomore in journalism.

To attain the elegance required for said outfit, our guard instructor ordered every single girl a “nude” bodysuit with a built-in leotard to wear underneath. Out of ignorance or maybe just carelessness, he forgot four women on the guard squad were black. When I wore the undergarment, its creamy texture blended with my pale complexion to make me look like an oversized fetus. It was ugly, but it got the job done. When these women wore the bodysuit, they looked like they were wearing beige overalls. Each time they moved the skirt of their dresses during the show, they didn’t reveal a faux flash of leg as intended, but instead showed what appeared to be socked feet. To add icing on top of an already disastrous cake, we had “nude” shoes to complement the outfit. Each one of these ladies vocalized the stupidity of wearing something meant to blend in that did the exact opposite. “Nude” should not be treated as a color that fits people of a certain mold. In 2013, Christian Louboutin revealed a line of pumps to accommodate a range of different skin tones for women. Though this was rather innovative and progressive on the company’s part, I don’t know many women who can afford $675 heels. This issue extends beyond the fashion world. Frankly, I would love to hear from Johnson & Johnson why they can make Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Band-Aids but they can’t make “flesh”-colored BandAids for anyone who’s not Caucasian. It’s time we threw out concepts like “nude” that attempt to whitewash the rainbow and accommodate people of all races. Otherwise, we’ll live in a world that’s bland. maehogan@indiana.edu

Chelsea Manning needs a word As usual, the State of the Union address was a top-to-bottom massacre of verbiage. Every year the English language struggles to survive an onslaught of what can only be described as total verbal hangover from a year of rhetorical binge drinking. Somehow, some way, one man manages to stand on a platform — while two other guys sit awkwardly behind him clapping every now and then — and sum up a bunch of nonsense over the course of an hour or more. The results are never pretty, and picking out something objectionable is easier than shooting fish in a barrel. But, if I had to pick one of the most egregious quotes from President Obama, it’s this: “(W)e defend free speech and advocate for political prisoners and condemn the persecution of women or religious minorities or people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.” Mr. President, do you know who Chelsea Manning is? I mean, you seem to know who she is. You’ve said in the past Manning is guilty of “breaking the law,” thus implying she deserves her sentence of up to 35 years in prison. You’ve also said the Pentagon assures you her conditions are “appropriate and are meeting our basic

information to the public the government found embarrassing. Is that a sign of a free society? I suspect Obama does know who Manning is, but for some reason she doesn’t count as someone who has been persecuted for her struggles as someone who is transgender — despite the fact during her pre-trial hearing Marine Corps Master Sgt. Craig Blenis defended the pretrial detention on the basis of Manning’s gender dysphoria because “that’s not normal, sir.” So does persecution of transgender people only count when governments aren’t the persecutors? Is Manning not a victim of persecution much like the inordinate number of other trans people locked in prison? And what is Manning if not a political prisoner who has been locked away for up to 35 years because she helped an undefined enemy in some nebulous — and apparently impossible to argue for — way? At the heart of this is Obama’s ability to both recognize and obfuscate. Sure he knows about Manning, but the question is whether or not he cares. With statements like the one he made in his address, we can see the answer before us quite clearly.

standards” when she was placed in solitary confinement. This, despite the fact that, at the time, she was being “confined for 23 hours a day to a single cell, measuring around 72 square feet, equipped only with a bed, toilet and sink.” The fact it was an illegally lengthy pretrial detention didn’t seem to matter much to Obama either, despite there being pretty good grounds for it as a human rights violation. As the Center for a Stateless Society’s Nathan Goodman wrote, “U.N. Special Rapporteur on Torture Juan Mendez investigated the conditions under which Manning was held and concluded ‘that the 11 months under conditions of solitary confinement ... constitutes at a minimum cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in violation of article 16 of the convention against torture. If the effects in regards to pain and suffering inflicted on Manning were more severe, they could constitute torture.’” Given this history of knowing ignorance, how could Obama not know about Chelsea Manning? Obama’s history of protecting other big political dissidents is also abysmal. Just ask Edward Snowden, who had to flee the country to make sure he wasn’t detained like Manning, before he released

Men are responsible for their thoughts Christian blogger Veronica Partridge recently posted online about her decision to no longer wear leggings or yoga pants in public. The reason is she believes the pieces cause wrong and lustful thoughts from men. While there are certain situations when wearing leggings is not appropriate, we cannot say women who are wearing them are intentionally drawing the male gaze. We need to stop placing the responsibility of men’s lustful decisions solely on women. Leggings are comfortable and functional.

I choose to wear them with longer shirts and sweaters because they keep my legs warm. I put them on knowing as I run around campus I won’t have to continuously pull at them to keep them up like I would with jeans. I have never put on a pair of leggings and thought, “Now these will make guys want to have sex with me.” Partridge is correct when saying yoga pants are thin and form-fitting. However, that is exactly what makes them functional. When working out, yoga pants keep my lower body cool and free to move easily.

If I were to wear thick sweatpants, they would restrict my body movements, decreasing the quality of my workout. Partridge’s issue with this clothing is that it fit women’s figures so well. It is true leggings and yoga pants do flatter women’s bodies in a way that is attractive. There is no good reason to tell women wearing clothing that is flattering is wrong. In fact, it is Partridge’s reason for avoiding wearing these pieces in public that is wrong. She is basically

sending the message that women who are sexually assaulted — or worse — are responsible for the assault. Partridge decided not to wear leggings or yoga pants because her husband told her it was difficult to not look at other women who were wearing them. Partridge avoids holding her husband accountable for his own lustful thoughts and places the blame on women. This is a wrong and outdated way to handle this situation. We need to make men responsible for their own thoughts and actions. If a woman’s clothing

“College kids always hear their parents talk about the attack on Pearl Harbor or the assassination of JFK, but they had never lived through anything relatable until 9-11 occurred,” he said. “They were full of emotions — anger and shock especially. I was able to relate my experience from the past to similar situations. I tried to reiterate that when you think things are going well, that’s when you are sometimes most vulnerable. But they handled it like adults and with a lot of respect.” Drossos said the memories made working with young men in fraternities are part of the job as house director. Most fraternities and sororities around campus have a house director — someone who assists with finances, events and other house matters. Although fun, there are boundaries as to how far the relationship can go, he said. “They know I have a job to do, and they respect that,” he said. “Fraternity housing managers are just like property managers. When guys do things that are detrimental to the group or building, you have to sit and figure it out. Sometimes you can make a difference, and sometimes you have to pass things to the housing board.” Beta Theta Pi house director Colleen Bell spoke with joy as she described the influence the Beta men have on her life. “I’ve loved my job from the day I started it,” she said. “The boys are my life.

with them extremely well, and I like to spoil them. It’s almost like I have 100 sons.” Bell began working at the Beta house as a cook and eventually took over as house director. This is her fourth year on the job. “It can be very stressful at times,” she said. “They’re boys, they misbehave, but I wouldn’t want to have any other job. They’re very respectful and treat me very well, and we have a really good relationship with each other.” In many cases, the value of a fraternity house director isn’t truly known until one speaks to the young men working with them. Alpha Epsilon Pi president Mitch Cooper said everything you take for granted at home is what your house director does for you.

“Our house director, Linda, helps us with our house operations,” Cooper said. “A lot of the things we do cannot be done without her. It’s like having an extra helper for things we need. She’s been doing this for a long time, and whenever we need her she’s there for us.” Bell said one of her favorite aspects of her job is witnessing the young men she works with grow up into adults. “It’s a pleasure to see them go from boys to men,” she said. “I get to watch them grow up, and that‘s one of the best benefits of being a house director.” Drossos agreed. “The biggest gratification I have is seeing young freshmen come into a fraternity chapter and see how they progress over the years, seeing them grow into outstanding individuals,” he said. “Some

On their last days of school, they walked around and realized they’d never live there again. When I saw them, I knew they had gotten it. They got what they joined a fraternity for. That was another special moment. It made me feel good to have helped them along the way.”

Uber’s standards attracted criticism in December 2014 after an alleged rape of a passenger by an Uber driver in the Boston area, as reported by the Boston Globe. Cities and states have attempted to regulate Uber with mixed success. Uber has been banned

or fined in San Francisco, Chicago, Massachusetts and New York, among other municipalities, according to a 2014 report by Forbes. Most of these bans and fines center on insurance laws or existing taxi regulations, according to Forbes. Uber has fought back against these regulatory attempts and regularly publishes blog posts celebrating its successes, including receiving permission to operate in Washington, D.C. Hale was aware of the pushback that other

regulatory attempts have caused and sought to avoid any controversy. “This bill concentrates on rider safety and background checks,” Hale said. “Uber actually testified in support of the bill.” Hale made a point of highlighting that this bill in no way seeks to act as a deterrent to ride-hailing companies. “I don’t want to discourage new business,” Hale said. “I just want to make sure you feel safe in the backseat of that car.”

Members of the Broadway show “Sister Act” perform on stage Tuesday at the IU Auditorium. The musical is based off the 1992 film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg.

Sister, sister Broadway musical Sister Act opens at IU Auditorium Tuesday night By Lauren Saxe lsaxe@indiana.edu | @SaxeLauren

The Broadway musical “Sister Act” opened at the IU Auditorium on Tuesday night, complete with dancing nuns, an undercover showgirl, lifeor-death drama and an auditorium filled with energy that led the audience to a standing ovation. Based on the hit movies starring Whoopi Goldberg, the musical “Sister Act” follows the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a night club performer who dreams of an extravagant life of stardom. But when Deloris Van Cartier becomes a witness to a murder that her boyfriend has committed, she is quickly sent off to a convent as a part of the witness protection program — the last place anyone would look for her. Swapping her diva attitude for a habit, Van Cartier transforms herself into the unlikely identity of “Sister Mary Clarence.” Deloris brings a new voice to both the convent and its choir. Headed by Mother Superior, The Holy Order of the Little Sisters of Our Mother of Perpetual Faith is in for quite the wake-up call. Mother Superior is less than thrilled upon Deloris’s arrival, however the other nuns are quite intrigued by their new sister. After Sister Mary Clarence recites a jumbled, misconstrued prayer, the nuns enlighten her on the joys of being a nun in the comical “It’s Good to Be a Nun.” The ladies’ personalities paired with the song’s clever lyrics had the crowd chuckling throughout the entirety of the song. “I liked the nuns a lot,” IU junior Robert Johnson said of the interaction between the nuns and their several musical numbers. “Each one

The larger, louder one compared to the small, timid one — it makes for a good balance.” Eddie, eventual love interest to Deloris and the cop helping her remain incognito, adds some comic relief as well in his solo “I Could Be That Guy.” With three costume changes in the span of a few minutes, it garnered some audience attention. “The costume changes were really impressive,” junior Hannah Thielmeyer said of Eddie’s quick changes. Ending the first act with two powerhouse gospel numbers, Sister Mary Clarence has revamped the convent’s choir, throwing out the old repertoire and traditions, and adding the pizzazz of her showgirl days. In a panic, Mother Superior demands Sister Mary Clarence be removed. Throughout the second act, Sister Mary Clarence becomes more and more of an asset to the convent, not only winning the affections of her fellow sisters, but also earning the church some money with such a successful choir. Despite unleashing her free spirit and shining a new light on her friends at the convent, Sister Mary Clarence is also changed throughout the process. Sister Mary Clarence learns a few things about herself and about what is truly important in life with the help of her fellow nuns. SEE SISTER ACT, PAGE 8

Atwood to speak at Buskirk From IDS reports

Novelist Margaret Atwood is coming to IU this February. Atwood will be speaking, giving a public reading and interacting with the IU and Bloomington communities while she is on campus, according to a University press release. IU English professor Ed Comentale, interim director of the College Arts and Humanities Institute, is sponsoring Atwood’s visit. “Margaret Atwood has been a guiding literary light for nearly five decades,” Comentale said in the release. “She first became famous for her fearless writings about gender and power, and now

she’s inspired a whole new generation of readers with her fantastic tales of dystopia.” Atwood’s work will also be displayed at the Lilly Library in an exhibit titled “The Speculative Worlds of Margaret Atwood” during her visit, according to the University. The exhibition will run from Jan. 28 to Feb. 20. Atwood has received several awards, including a Booker Prize, and has authored more than 40 volumes of poetry, children’s literature, fiction and nonfiction, according to the University. Some of her bestknown novels include “The Blind Assassin” and “The

Associate English Professor Monique Morgan will lead the Feb. 3 discussion with Atwood at the BuskirkChumley Theater, according to the press release. “Margaret Atwood is a novelist, poet, short story writer and essayist who unflinchingly portrays personal failings, social injustice and ecological devastation while offering hope for change and redemption,” Morgan said in the release. “In her most recent trilogy of speculative novels set in the near future, Atwood — to paraphrase one of her characters — dreams bad things so that we won’t have to.”

Edible Woman.” Her Twitter account also boasts more than 600,000 followers, according to the release. “We’re lucky to be following along as she tackles some of the planet’s biggest issues: environmental instability, overpopulation, terrorism, human rights, genetic manipulation — the list goes on and on,” Comentale said in the release. “She’s a hero, and her visit to campus is a fan’s dream.” A one-day conference on her writing and a film screening at the IU Cinema of the film adaptation of “The Handmaid’s Tale” will also be shown at 6:30 on Feb. 1, according to the University.

A weekend for new things in Toledo I think one of the worst things about being abroad is stifling your fear of things that are new and different. My strategy is to throw myself at them and pray I don’t break something. That was certainly how this past weekend shaped up. We were given plenty of free time to explore Madrid and Spanish culture, which is an entirely different world from the United States. They don’t even have Oreos. We also had a group trip to Toledo to learn about the influence of Arab culture in Spain. It’s most obvious there, where there’s a tight mix of Judaism, Islam and Christianity in a city no larger than Indianapolis. But first, we tried out a Spanish market, which I imagined would be a pleasant experience where I could pretend to be a fairy tale maiden on her way to buy bread, basket under her arm. Instead, it was a hotbed of weird meat and people screaming at passersby to try eel. And it was crowded. But there was something fairy tale-esque about it. We went to the Mercado de San Miguel, an old and famous market near the heart of Madrid. There was something primitive yet sophisticated about buying food the way people have done for centuries — from local farmers, fishermen and bakers and trying to haggle for the best price. I’ve found that even in the strangest things abroad there’s a kind of beauty that


Catedral de Santa Marîa de Toledo is the second-largest cathedral in Spain.

comes with centuries of tradition. This was even more true in Toledo, where the sometimes peaceful and often violent intermixing of religion and culture resulted in a city with a tangible identity. Toledo is a historical site for Spain. Nothing in Toledo has been changed for a very long time, nor can it be changed without the permission of the Spanish government. That means the Toledo that exists today is the Toledo in which El Greco lived and worked, in which the Spanish king had his court before moving it permanently to Madrid. It also means Toledo has a very confusing layout, and


the heating doesn’t really work. These are the sacrifices we must make in the name of preservation. Toledo is like a movie set. It is built on top of a large hill and is surrounded by a river, which means that it was perfectly positioned for defense. Because Muslim and Moor labor was cheap, nearly all of the buildings were built by Muslims. As a result, everything from houses to synagogues to Christian churches, barring the Catedral, look like mosques. The Catedral de Santa María de Toledo is the second largest cathedral in Spain. It’s also considered the most important because Toledo was, for a while, the

Catholic capital of Spain, according to Trip Advisor. It’s absolutely enormous and decorated head to toe in paintings. Its influence in Toledo is tangible. Tangible identity is probably the best way to describe Spain and Spaniards. Each region and person seems more powerfully made by what is around them than the average tourist or passerby. It makes you want to find your own identity, too. ewenning@indiana.edu


Strengthening relationships after having children Ever since my wife had our son she doesn’t stay wet. She will be wet for a while then in the midst of things she dries up. We have tried lubes, but after a bit it’s dry again. This is really putting a strain on our relationship because she thinks I’m cheating. We don’t do it that often because we never get any pleasure from it. Can someone please help? I’m not sure how long it’s been since your wife had your son, or if she is still breastfeeding, but it may be that her estrogen levels are still low. If so, lubricants will only help a little. She may benefit from using a vaginal moisturizer, which is different from a lubricant. A vaginal moisturizer is something that women insert into the vagina a few times a week, often before bed so that it doesn’t seep out of the vagina thanks to gravity and get on her clothes. The moisturizer can help to keep the vagina moist and comfortable throughout the week and not just when you have sex, though you still may want to use a lubricant when you have intercourse. If your wife thinks you’re cheating simply because you’re not having frequent sex, I wonder if she — like many women — believes the myth that most men want sex all the time, or that men can’t get enough sex. Many women are raised to believe that men always want sex and then, when a boyfriend or a husband doesn’t want sex, it’s confusing to some


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 This becomes apparent in both “Bless Our Show” and even more so in the title song “Sister Act.” Realizing they may not be as different as they thought, both Deloris and Mother Superior come to a final place of peace, love and respect. Deloris then realizes her heart has been captured by her sisters, something that will never be overruled by fame or money. Leaving the audience with the feel-good number “Spread the Love Around,” the show ended in true Deloris fashion with glitzy costumes, a big production number and energy radiating throughout the aisles of

women who may wonder if he’s cheating, no longer attracted to her or secretly gay. It may sound silly because, of course, very few people in the world always want sex. Most of us get tired or stressed or have other things to do, and yet it’s true that many women, even unconsciously, believe this. It may be helpful to talk with your wife and reassure her that you are not cheating but that sex is more comfortable and pleasurable when it’s a little wetter. You’ll want to try and say this in a way that doesn’t make her feel old or damaged, as many women struggle with body image issues after having a baby. Talking about the issue with kindness and compassion may help you two to create a more pleasurable sex life together.

IU looks to sweep Michigan State on road IU women’s basketball (12-7, 2-6) will travel Wednesday to Michigan State (10-10, 2-7) in a rematch of IU’s 70-51 victory in Bloomington on New Year’s Eve. Neither team has fared well in Big Ten play,

as both have won only two conference games. In the last meeting, IU outrebounded Michigan State 49-34. Freshman guard Tyra Buss had 10 points and 15 rebounds.


IU small ball looks to counter Purdue size IU (15-5, 5-2) at Purdue (12-8, 4-3) 9 p.m. today, Big Ten Network

By Sam Beishuizen sbeishui@indiana.edu @Sam_Beishuizen


Freshman guard James Blackmon Jr. dunks during IU’s game against Maryland last Thursday at Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers won 89-70, thanks in part to going 15-for-22 from behind the arc. Purdue has struggled to defend the 3-pointer this season.

Purdue is big. Indiana is small. It’s not much more complicated than that. When No. 22 IU (15-5, 5-2) and Purdue (12-8, 4-3) meet at 9 p.m. in Mackey Arena in West Layette, the teams will be playing in the epitome of a matchups game. IU will rely on its small ball lineup while Purdue counters with a pair of 7-foot centers in AJ Hammons and Isaac Haas. Purdue’s big men situation is rare in today’s game. Only three other teams in the country have two 7-footers on the same roster. It’s a worst-case matchup scenario for a small team like IU. Yogi Ferrell knows they’re coming, too. The junior guard expects Purdue to throw the ball into the post and dare IU to beat them. He doesn’t blame them either. If he were Purdue Coach Matt Painter, he’d do the same thing. “I’d say any team would have that mindset knowing how small we play,” Ferrell said. “That’s what I would do, personally, if I was a coach. Try and pound it inside ... What we’ll do is just prepare very well for their bigs.” But preparing for two 7-footers is a bit of a challenge for IU, considering the tallest player on the active roster is 6-foot-11 freshman center Jeremiah April. After 6-foot-9 freshman

forward Tim Priller, nobody else is listed taller than 6-foot-7. Coming off the bench but still serving as the primary center, Hammons is averaging 10.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Haas has been nearly as effective, grabbing 9.5 points and 4.4 rebounds in a little more than five minutes fewer than Hammons per game. IU, a small team to begin with, has played even smaller for four games since junior forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea suffered a knee injury. But the combination of the 7-foot Hammons and the 7-foot-2 Haas will force IU to get creative defensively as IU has no obvious answer to defend the two centers. Ferrell said the key will be for undersized forwards like sophomore Collin Hartman to establish defensive position early and not allow the big men to dictate the half-court offense. If the Hoosiers can speed up the pace, the Boilermakers will have fewer opportunities to throw the ball into the paint. On the flip side, IU will try to create matchup problems of its own. The Hoosiers will respond to size with quick guards, hoping to neutralize the size advantage by playing around SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 12


Purdue will test Hoosiers’ height The IU vs. Purdue men’s basketball rivalry dates back to March 2, 1901. The final score of that game: 20-15, in favor of Purdue. This time, we’ll see that many points scored in about the first 10 minutes. The two teams are coming off opposite results this weekend. Purdue upset a then-ranked Iowa team, while the Hoosiers were knocked off in Value City Arena by Ohio State. IU will be tested again Wednesday. This Boilermaker team looks like it was built to take on the Hoosiers, who will again be without a real big man. Sophomore forward Collin Hartman seems to be the current answer down low at 6-foot-7, and it’s gone well. Hartman has provided a boost to the Hoosier offense, giving them more spacing and another threat from deep. Don’t expect much different against Purdue. However, on defense, Hartman has not looked as sharp and was exposed against Ohio State. It wasn’t really his fault. He’s undersized and playing a position he’s never played be-

fore. There’s only so much he can do against superior post players. IU Coach Tom Crean said after the Ohio State game that the Hoosiers will continue to look for ways to help Hartman down low. They better hurry up, because Purdue has the weapons to dominate inside. If Purdue is going to upset IU, it’s going to do it through the post. Purdue’s centers, A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas, should have a field day on the offensive end, as IU won’t have any one player who can stop them. Purdue’s defense will also be tested. The Hoosiers lead the conference in 3-point field goal percentage, and the Boilermakers are the secondworst at defending the three. Part of that is probably due to Hammons and Haas protecting the rim rather than closing out on shooters, but they’ll have to change that Wednesday. Give a Hoosier an open shot, and he will make you pay. Despite it being one of the more heated rivalries in the Big Ten, somehow these games are never close, espe-

cially in recent years. This one might be different. The game will be decided by which team can force the other to play out of character. Will IU be able to figure out how to play defense in the post? If IU gets ahead, does Purdue have the shooters or talent to come back? It’s an interesting matchup in that both teams seem built to beat the other. Purdue has the size to bully IU, but if it goes big, IU will be too fast for the Boilermakers on defense. Purdue is in good position to pull off an upset here, but the Boilermakers will have to sacrifice defensive speed to do it. I don’t see Purdue being able to keep up with IU’s speed and shooting.

Hoosiers look to end season with win on senior night By Brett Frieman bfrieman@indiana.edu

In just one year, IU’s Division 3 hockey team has made improvements both on and off the ice. After posting a 29-59-3 record during the past four years, the team sits at 10-102 this season and will play its final home game against Michigan at 9:15 p.m. Friday at Frank Southern Ice Arena. The game will also be the team’s senior night. The Hoosiers are in their first season as members of the Indiana Collegiate Hockey Conference in the American

Collegiate Hockey Association along with Ball State, IUPurdue University Fort Wayne and Purdue. The team is 3-3 in conference play. IU, having won two of its last three games, will face a Michigan team that holds a 7-12-1 record but is currently ranked No. 14 in the ACHA’s North Region. The Hoosiers are led by senior captain Nick Kleva, who has been one of the team’s most dominant players with 38 points from 18 goals and 20 assists. “We’ve had good practices this week to get ready for Michigan,” Kleva said.

“They’re a Big Ten rival, and both teams are playing great hockey right now, but our team is focused and ready to go.” The forward will be honored before the game along with five other seniors who are also graduating this year. Before Friday night’s game, the team will recognize former head coach Richard Holdeman for being elected to the ACHA’s 2013 Hall of Fame class. Holdeman coached the Hoosiers from 1992 to 2006 and led the team to 12 consecutive ACHA SEE HOCKEY, PAGE 12

Big Ten battle By Brody Miller& Grace Palmieri | sports@idsnews.com

While IU is looking to recover from a three-game losing streak, the Spartans have won two of their last four, but their conference record is still only 2-7. Michigan State began Big Ten play by losing its first five games and is tied for last in the Big Ten. IU is not much better, as it has the second worst record in the conference. Despite losing three straight, the Hoosiers led then No. 23 Minnesota for 38 minutes before losing late. Then a week later, IU outscored No. 5 Maryland in the second half.

The Hoosiers outrebounded the Spartans, who entered the game leading the Big Ten in total rebounds and rebounding margin. Amanda Cahill and Tyra buss both had double-doubles, combining for 23 points and 28 rebounds.

Michigan State is currently sixth in the Big Ten in rebounding offense, fifth in rebounding defense, and fifth in rebounding margin. Sophomore forward Aerial Powers leads the team with 21.5 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 49 steals, 24 blocks and 76 assists.

The Spartans have just one player shooting over 30 percent from beyond the arc. Sophomore guard Tori Jankoska, who averages 16.6 points per game, has 39 made 3-pointers on the season.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 the perimeter and using speed to blow by the larger Purdue players. Using smaller players against the Purdue bigs works two-fold. It allows IU’s guards and wings to isolate a defender oneon-one and attack the rim without worrying as much about help defense and could also create open looks on the perimeter if Hammons or Haas stays inside. The Boilermakers are already 277th in the country in defending 3-pointers, where IU scores 34 percent of its points. Painter sees that as a problem already and said he expects IU to attack from long distance. “This is probably the biggest extreme we will have and the biggest extreme they will have in Big Ten play in terms of who’s going to have to adjust,” Painter said. “I think both teams will have to adjust.” Purdue is 1-3 against


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 National Tournament appearances where it finished three times as runner-up. Holdeman will be honored with a banner with his name raised to rafters of Frank Southern Ice Arena. Perhaps the biggest addition responsible for IU’s recent improvement, however, is first-year head coach Rich Gordon. Having previously played for the Hoosiers from 1994 to 1996, Gordon coached at Columbus High School for seven years and led the team to a state championship in 2008. “This has been a great opportunity for me as coach,” Gordon said. “I’ve enjoyed working with the entire coaching staff to help the players work toward achieving their goals. We have big goals and high expectations for this team moving into next season.” The team has worked to correlate on-ice success off

teams currently ranked in the top-25. It is coming off a 67-63 win against No. 25 Iowa and now looks to add another ranked win to their season. IU is trying to bounce back from a 82-70 loss to Ohio State only three days after convincingly defeating No. 13 Maryland 89-70. The Hoosiers have yet to lose two straight games this season. Dictating the game will be pivotal. Crean said the game should be fun to watch because both teams will be struggling to enforce their styles of play and control the pace. He added he’s looking forward to the challenge, but he’s still not quite sure what will happen. IU has dealt with dominant centers before this season, but never two on the same team. So Crean was asked point blank: Can IU’s quickness and shooting beat Purdue’s size? “I don’t know, they’re really big,” Crean said. “We’re gonna find out.”

the ice and brand itself as an immaculate student-run organization. This past October the team hosted its inaugural “Pink the Rink” event in its season opener against Ball State. The game made more than $3,000 in revenue to raise awareness and research funds for breast cancer, and the team will be donating part of its proceeds to IU Health’s Olcott Center. As the Hoosiers prepare for the Wolverines on Friday night to end their last home game on a high note, team president and forward Cody Reiff said the team is also aiming to finish the season strong in next month’s playoffs. “We’re looking forward to the ICHC Conference Tournament February 14 and 15,” Reiff said. “Not only because its the inaugural year of the conference and our chance to prove we’re the best team in the state, but also because we’ll be playing against Purdue for a chance to play for the conference title.”
