Clinic offers new HIV services By Peter Talbot

The Prospect Hill historic district is a block of houses located west of IU’s campus. Most people living in historic districts don't have solar panels that are visible from the street because of restrictions from the Historic Preservation Commission; the panels are installed instead on the backs or sides of the roof.

Getting the green light

Homeowners in historic districts debate aesthetics versus sustainability. By Rose Bythrow

cbythrow@umail.iu.edu | @RoseBythrow

Jacob Emery used to run out of his house in the historic Prospect Hill neighborhood to look at the electricity meter every morning during the first week his solar panels were installed. The panels create more energy than his house consumes, so the meter spins backwards. This excess energy is measured and turned into net-metering credits, which can be used at night or during the winter when the panels are not producing as much energy. “It feels like I’m magically violating the space-time continuum,” Emery said. The Historic Preservation Commission has veto-power over any change to homes in historical districts, from replacing a window to installing $10,000 worth of solar panels. Emery was surprised by the hoops he had to jump through to install solar panels on his roof, which included a commission meeting and having someone present on his behalf. If Emery’s installation was not approved by the commission and he chose to install the panels anyway, he could get fined. “I thought it would be rubber stamped without controversy,” Emery said. “Which was perhaps foolish of me.” The tension between wanting sustainable energy and preserving history was clear at the commission’s meeting Sept. 14, where Emery’s petition to install solar panels on his roof was approved, 6-2, after much debate. “It was touch and go there for a minute,” said Al Jarvis, founder of Solar Systems of Indiana, who attended the meeting to speak on Emery’s behalf. Chris Sturbaum, a commission member who voted against Emery’s solar panels, said his choice was a matter of trade-offs. As a preservationist, Sturbaum says he likes to see a house how people saw it 100 years ago. “Some people may consider that solar panels trump everything, but I don’t think that’s a reasonable approach,”

Sturbaum said. The commission approves or denies solar panel installations based on strict national guidelines in combination with guidelines each neighborhood writes. These guidelines vary from each other, especially in the case of Elm Heights and Prospect Hill. People like Emery in Prospect Hill, a small, quiet cluster of 28 houses just west of campus, struggle to get their projects approved because of these neighborhood guidelines. Residents of Elm Heights, a larger district south of campus, do not have this issue and recently participated in a project to buy panels in bulk. Thanks to a group of Bloomington High School South students last year, Elm Heights has almost tripled its number of solar systems. IU freshman Katherine Tilghman was one of the founders of Interfaith Community of Environmentalist Youth, a high school group that helped people in Elm Heights buy panels at a discounted rate. They went from 20 systems to about 60 in a year.

“It’s not the prettiest thing in the world. It does detract from the historic front of the house.” Chris Sturbaum, Historic Preservation Commission member

“We just really wanted to make a big impact,” Tilghman said. Tilghman said she sees the conflict between installing solar panels and keeping the home’s historic look, but she hopes people will get inspiration from their neighbors and amend the guidelines. Solar panel regulations do not just affect people living in historic neighborhoods. Tilghman’s neighborhood, Winslow Farm, which is not historic, bans solar panels altogether.

Tilghman started another initiative in her neighborhood to vote to change the guidelines to allow panels. The voting period ends Dec. 15. “Solar proponents are more hopeful about this,” Tilghman said. “The biggest obstacle will be getting enough homeowners to vote.” Jarvis and his team from Solar Systems have been working 10 hour days, six to seven days a week to install all the solar panels on order before the new year starts and Senate Bill 309 goes into effect. The bill will decrease the net-metering benefits for anyone who installs panels after Dec. 31, 2017. The actual installation takes one to three days, but the other requirements for the homeowner can make the process take months. Aside from Historic Preservation Commission approval, which can involve a month-long wait for a hearing, the process includes a site visit, a connection agreement with an energy company, and an inspection from the Monroe County Building Requirement. After Emery’s installation was finished in October, Sturbaum went to look at the 1904 red roofed house, now outfitted with black panels. “It’s not the prettiest thing in the world,” Sturbaum said. “It does detract from the historic front of the house.” Jarvis disagreed, saying his team put effort into making the installation look as clean as possible by consciously hiding the wires and conductors. “When I drive by, I’m like ‘that looks good. I think that looks tight,’” Jarvis said. As someone who appreciates aesthetics and has written several books on art, Emery said he understands how installing solar panels can change the appearance of the neighborhood. On the other hand, Emery thinks it would be foolish to insist every visible part of the house be kept in the condition it was a century ago. “Solar panels, like shingles or gutters are detachable elements of the house,” Emery said.

For just the second time this season, No. 2 IU will face an ACC opponent in the NCAA Tournament semi-finals, and it comes in the biggest moment of its season. No. 3 North Carolina stands in the Hoosiers’ way from reaching the national championship for the first time in five years, and IU has little familiarity with the breed of opponent the Tar Heels bring. Earlier this year, the Hoosiers faced then-No. 7 Notre Dame, welcoming the Fighting Irish to Bill Armstrong Stadium in the thick of their season. It was the only time IU faced ACC opposition in its 2017 campaign, and the

Positive Link HIV Services has helped people living with HIV since 1994. With the grand opening of its new health clinic Tuesday, Positive Link will be able to offer clinical care for the first time. Positive Link is a program of IU Health Bloomington Hospital Community Health. It offers preventative services through education on HIV/ AIDS and testing, as well as direct services for those affected by the disease. “This is the first time that we'll actually be able to do clinical service for our clients,” said Carol Weiss-Kennedy, director of community health for IU Health Bloomington. “Many of our clients usually wait to get into primary care or to see their specialist, and that takes quite a while. Or, they're going to Indianapolis or somewhere else for their care." About 30 people gathered for the grand opening. The ceremony included tours of the facility, remarks from staff at Positive Link and a ribboncutting ceremony. Weiss-Kennedy said that previously, Positive Link was only able to offer services for prevention and care coordination, which meant connecting people with other social services. The clinic will now provide billed services, meaning clients’ insurance can be billed for the costs. Positive Link is remaining in the same building on East Miller Drive and South Henderson Street, but it will now be open for clinical services every Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Weiss-Kennedy said they have the potential to add more if the need is there. Weiss-Kennedy said part of the importance of the clinic is its accessibility. The clinic is on the bus line, making it more available to the community. Julie Hiles, a care coordinator at Positive Link, led a small group on a tour of the exam room they will be utilizing. She spoke with people on the tour about what the clinic meant for Positive Link. “We’re in a much more stable place now,” Hiles said. Hiles began the ribboncutting ceremony by talking about the history of Positive Link. She began working there in 1994. At the time, Positive Link did not have a name and there were only four staff members, two of whom were part-time. Holes said HIV/AIDS was a whole different ballgame in 1994 than it is today. “When I first started as a care coordinator, most of my job was essentially planning funerals and helping people get on disability, and there wasn’t a lot of hope at that time," Hiles said. Hiles said that with good leadership, Positive Link has gone from planning funerals to working with people to get them back to work and having their own children and families. Jill Stowers, clinical lead manager of community health at Positive Link, said that historically, people have only wished for a vaccine or cure for HIV/AIDS to come along. Now, Stowers said, there’s another way. The CDC announced Sept. 27 they had scientific evidence that people who are HIV-positive and have an undetectable viral load, meaning less than 200 copies of HIV genetic material per milliliter of blood, cannot transmit the disease.

Bloomington Faculty Council passes tax bill resolution By Rebecca Ellisclose rebellis@umail.iu.edu | @rebeccae_97

The Bloomington Faculty Council met Tuesday and focused on three main topics: A resolution in opposition to the taxation of tuition waivers, a discussion of the suspension of fraternities belonging to the Interfraternity Council and policy change. Resolution in Opposition of Tax Bill: The GOP House of Representatives tax bill contains the possibility of taxation of tuition waivers for graduate students. It also raises concern for some IU staff and faculty with lower incomes whose taxes will also increase. “It would be apocalyptic to us if it did pass,” Secretary Jesse Molesworth said. Abby Ang is a graduate student and associate instructor in the IU Department of English. She said at a graduate student walkout last Wednesday that $14,500 of her tuition is waived each year. If the waiver is taxed,

her taxes would jump by $2,000. For some, she said, the tax spike would be by 400 percent. The tax bill left many graduate students panicked and questioning what the University was going to do to help them. The University is looking at restructuring the way grad students are funded as a potential strategy to combat this tax bill, Molesworth said. However, the wording of the proposed resolution was heavily debated as many faculty members wanted to clarify aspects of the language. Katie Siek, an associate professor in the School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering, proposed emphasizing the educational value of the graduate students as teachers. Siek’s amendment was passed. However, many of the proposed amendments did not pass, and after the list of proposed amendments grew, Provost Lauren Robel said it was most important to focus on messaging. Robert Kravchuk, a pro-

fessor in the School of Environmental and Public Affairs, said it was important now more than ever to support graduate students and find strategies to help them. “This is a nice resolution," Kravchuk said, "It needs to be said, and it needs to be passed. But we need to do more.”

The resolution passed with a majority vote. It stated that the Bloomington Faculty Council supported President Michael McRobbie's statement against the bill and urges the University to develop a strategy to protect those affected.

Provost Robel used her report as an opportunity to discuss the recent suspension of the fraternities who belong in the Interfraternity Council. She pointed out there have been four deaths in the last several months nationally due to fraternity activity. “Nothing keeps me up at night more than this particular issue,” Robel said, adding that she has been having fraternities sign agreements to protect the safety of their members. Robel said 31 fraternities on campus are Interfraternity Council fraternities. She said many of the multicultural fraternities fall under a different council and are not apart of the suspension. Social activities, activities with alcohol and new member activities for IFC fraternities have been suspended until March. Robel said during this time, the University is working with these fraternities to get firm commitments about the principles and values a cure,” Stowers said. “There's another way that we can stop the spread of this disease.” She said even if open just once a week, the clinic helps. “It's filling a gap in our community,” she said. “It's definitely something that we're going to be measuring the outcomes of and looking at the impact that we're able to make.”

they should abide by. “It is a short-term development for the fraternities but it is a good development,” Robel said. Policy Changes and Additions: Alan Dennis, chair of the Faculty Affairs committee, also brought forth the changes made to the proposed royalty policy for instructor-developed classroom materials. The policy says there is a conflict of interest when instructors require students to buy materials they created, and they charge the student more than the cost of materials. The changes included the appointment of a faculty committee who would review the material and royalty being charged and the scope of the policy. It will not just restrict a professor’s ability to charge a royalty for materials in their own classes, but also for classes where professors play an influential role. This policy and its proposed changes were also passed with a majority vote. After congratulations from the IU Health Bloomington Hospital marketing and community relations vice president, Stowers invited people to help her cut the ribbon. "My hope, my dream is that this grows and we're able to do more and more and that we truly are able to stop the spread of this disease," Stowers said.

For the love of Venus IU statues and where they came from By Robert Mack rsmack@umail.iu.edu

The public art displays at IU are a defining feature of the campus’ character that have a far-reaching history. Some art works have become beloved IU landmarks, while others are hardly known at all. Some have been the subject of controversy for being too daring. Others have been the subject of local myth, lore and pranks. Both popular and obscure, the statues of IU each carry a story about campus. Showalter Fountain by Robert Laurent "The Birth of Venus" at the Showalter Fountain is the centerpiece of the Fine Arts Square and one of IU’s bestknown public art works. It is also the most abused and controversial, said Sherry Rouse, public art curator for IU. “People don’t like change,” Rouse said, noting it is not unusual for some people to get offended by modern design or nudity. "The Birth of Venus," designed by IU fine arts professor Robert Laurent, depicts the Roman goddess Venus rising from the waves on a shell surrounded by five fish (or dolphins), “an allegory for the pursuit of truth and beauty,” according to an IDS article from May 17, 1961. Its origins begin in the 1950s, when then-IU President Herman B Wells first commissioned it and traveled to Italy where the bronze was cast in 1958. Made possible by a gift from Grace Showalter, "The Birth of Venus" was dedicated Oct. 22, 1961. While the design was met with criticism by some students for its lack of "modesty” and because the eyebrowed fish are “ugly,” it soon became a popular hangout and part of campus culture. Tradition has it that graduating seniors jump into the fountain every May. Additionally, campus lore dictates that whenever a virgin graduates, one of the dolphins will swim away, and whenever a virgin walks by, Venus will come to life and the dolphins will swim away. Rouse said that such stories have become popularized through campus tours. The statue has also been at the center of numerous pranks and vandalism. All five fish disappeared when IU won the NCAA basketball championship in 1987, according to a report by the Indianapolis News. They were soon

recovered, according to an IDS report. A fish had also been taken when IU won the NCAA championship in 1976. In 1962, the IDS reported the school suspended students swimming in the fountain. Then in 1966, students poured detergent into the fountain, giving the statue of Venus a bubble bath. Pranksters have made the fish spout green-dyed water and have bestowed Venus with a hat or a bikini. Every few years someone attempts to steal one of the fish or rams their vehicle into the statue. The Space Between: Adam and Eve by Jean-Paul Darriau The Space Between by internationally recognized IU art professor JeanPaul Darriau, 1929-2006, is a bronze sculpture of nude Adam and Eve reaching out to each other resting on the eastern edge on Dunn’s Woods across from Kirkwood Hall. Completed in 1968, legend has it that Darriau used his own children as models, according to "Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus." IU art curator Sherry Rouse said Darriau wanted viewers to see them separately rather than together. The statues represent the differences between men and women, but show how they're drawn together by love. Rouse also said the statues’ nudity was a source of controversy. At one point, someone even sawed off the penis, making Darriau craft a new one. As

Stores offer sales to combat lack of student presence By Caroline Anders anders6@indiana.edu | @andersGOA

The holiday season is a businessman’s dream – unless that businessman’s customer base suddenly disappears. Local shops are hunkering down against the cold this week, preparing for the mass exodus of IU students during finals and the subsequent decrease in sales. Stores whose traffic is primarily students, particularly clothing and gift shops, notice a decrease in brick-andmortar sales during finals week and beyond, something not usually considered when thinking of retail during the holiday season. “Given the nature of college towns, everything slows way down in Bloomington when the students leave for breaks, which includes both sales and profits,” said Michael Mazor, president of clothing store Pitaya.

“If anyone has ever visited Bloomington and they love it, then they can always come back, so to speak, virtually.” Jim Inman, director of marketing and communications at the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce

Despite the loss in student traffic, some stores enjoy an increase in gift sales for the holiday season. This is especially true of T.I.S. Bookstore. “Parents and families shop with us and order online for holiday gifts,” said Tim Lloyd, general manager of T.I.S. Bookstore. “Students also are in during the end of the semester and shop IU gifts for their friends and families.” Sarah Sater, manager of gift and clothing store Greetings, also said the holidays welcome an increase in local shoppers.

“As students leave Bloomington for holiday break, we see many more Bloomingtonians on Kirkwood enjoying the increased parking availability, while shopping local businesses for last minute holiday gifts,” she said. Businesses with a strong online presence may also experience an increase in sales through the holidays. “We have a number of members across the area that are doing not just local sales, but because of Facebook and social media they are able to reach people that have lived in Bloomington at one point and are no longer here,” said Jim Inman, director of marketing and communications at the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce. He said there is a demand for Bloomington-based goods that exists beyond the city limits. “If anyone has ever visited Bloomington and they love it, then they can always come back, so to speak, virtually,” Inman said. These increases in local traffic, however, do not negate the loss of the student market during the holidays, particularly for stores like Pitaya, whose customer base is largely IU-based. “Most IU students tend to focus more on finals week and break during the holidays, which adversely affects the amount of traffic we see,” Mazor said. To combat this, many businesses run sales to attract holiday shoppers. “Students have commented over the years that it really helps them find holiday gifts for friends and family at a price their budget allows,” Sater said of Greetings’ holiday clearance rack. Mazor said Pitaya’s sales method is to mark down items already on sale even further. The sales team at T.I.S. is especially festive, running a 12 days of Christmas promotion from Dec. 11 to Dec. 23.

a joke, for decades now, IU students have dressed up Adam and Eve in the latest styles. Hoagy Carmichael sculpture by Michael McAuley The statue of song writer and IU alumnus Hoagy Carmichael by Michael McAuley is situated outside the IU Cinema along the northeast side of the IU Auditorium. Hoagy is portrayed at his grand piano, jacket tossed off, his left hand on a folder of past compositions and his right hand hovering about the keyboard, working on “Memphis in June,” according to McAuley’s own description. McAuley unveiled his statue of Carmichael at the Indy Jazz Fest in Bloomington in 2007. After obtaining his law degree from IU in 1926, Carmichael became a key figure in the American music scene. Among the Oscar winner’s notable compositions are “Georgia on my Mind,” “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening” and “Chimes of Indiana,” which was inspired by the ringing bells of IU’s student building, according to "Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus." Ernie Pyle by Harold Langland Harold "Tuck” Langland’s statue outside Franklin Hall of IU alumnus and noted World War II journalist Ernie Pyle was commissioned in 2013 for the inauguration of the Media School.

It was dedicated the following year on homecoming weekend. Langland, an IU-South Bend professor, portrayed a bronze, life-sized Pyle at his typewriter wearing a bomber jacket, helmet and goggles. A coffee cup is nearby. According to "Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus," the statue is meant to “convey how Pyle worked alongside foot soldiers at the front during WW2.” Just before finishing his degree, Pyle went to pursue a career in journalism, eventually becoming a war correspondent. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his first-person stories about infantry soldiers on World War II battlefields. He died when he was hit by machine gun fire during the Battle of Okinawa in Japan. About Pyle, former President Harry Truman said that, “No man in this war has so well told the story of the American fighting man as American fighting men wanted it told,” according to "Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus." Indiana Arc by Charles Perry The giant, red 21-foot Indiana Arc, situated by the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art, was dedicated in 1995. It was commissioned to stand aside architect I.M. Pei’s art museum and to honor the presidency of Thomas Ehrlich, according to "Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus." Perry, whose work can be seen around the world including Singapore, Australia, Saudi Arabia and the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., got the job. These are just a few of IU’s statues and their history. Schwier noted that many of the campus art work is homegrown, designed and sculpted by IU faculty. “We have an amazing art department here,” Schwier said. She said that public art is an integral part of the campus. “I think it is intended to make the campus more appealing to those of us who inhabit it. It’s more homelike,” Schwier said. “I know there’s lots of educational theory out there about if where you are occupying is beautiful, it inspires creativity in your own work, in your research, and productivity, and that kind of thing.”

Track season to start Friday From IDS reports

The IU men’s and women’s track and field teams will open their 201718 indoor season with high expectations at the Hoosier Open at Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse in Bloomington. IU Coach Ron Helmer and the Hoosiers are coming off a season in which the men’s team won its first Big Ten indoor title since 2012 and its 18th in program history. IU won five events at the men’s Big Ten championships last season and many of those top performers will return for this season.

Juniors Willie Morrison finished first in shot put, Eric Bethea won the triple jump and Treyton Harris took first in the long jump. Meanwhile, senior Daniel Kuhn won the 600-meter run along with juniors Joe Murphy, Markevious Roach and sophomore Kyle Mau. The trio were a part of the championship-winning distance medley relay team. Mau is the reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Year in indoor track as well. On the women’s side, the team is led by one of the nation’s top distance runners in junior Katherine Receveur. Last season, she became the first Hoosier female athlete to

earn All-American honors in crosscountry, indoor track and outdoor track all in the same year. It remains to be seen how many of IU’s top performers will compete Friday as they are set to take on Purdue, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Tennessee, Butler, North Florida, NC State, Detroit, Bellarmine, Saint Louis and Eastern Kentucky. In last year’s Hoosier Open, IU won eight events. Morrison broke the school record in the shot put, while Receveur broke the school record in the 5,000-meter run.

For the second time in two weeks, an IU running back announced his intention to transfer from the program. Redshirt junior Alex Rodriguez tweeted his plans to transfer Tuesday afternoon for his final season of eligibility. This comes less than one week after sophomore running back Tyler Natee also said he planned to transfer. Rodriguez appeared in all 12 games for IU this season and had 16 carries for 65 yards, both career highs. In his three years as a Hoosier, Rodriguez ran for 141 yards and one touchdown, which came in the 2015 Pinstripe Bowl. He was also named scout team player of the week 10 times with IU, including four times this season. In a statement posted to Twitter, Rodriguez said he will finish his degree in liberal arts before transferring.

He also thanked Coach Tom Allen and former IU Coach Kevin Wilson for putting him on scholarship after coming to IU as a walk-on. “Although I will be transferring to another institution to continue graduate school and my playing career I will forever be thankful to my IU teammates, coaches and support staff,” Rodriguez said in his tweet. IU is expected to return its top four running backs from 2017, including freshmen Morgan Ellison and Cole Gest, who combined to rush for more than 1,100 yards this season. Juniors Mike Majette and Ricky Brookins, as well as sophomore Devonte Williams, could all provide depth at running back if they return. In addition, IU’s highest-rated recruit for the 2018 class is four-star running back and Virginia native Ronnie Walker.

We are thrilled to welcome them into our Indiana men’s golf family.” Davis, who is a native of Valparaiso, Indiana, is coming off a season in which he served as team captain at Chesterton High School. Davis was the 2017 Boys State Junior Champion and a medalist at the tournament in the year prior. During the 2015-16 season Davis helped lead his team to a sectional title, and finished his high school career with an average round score of 73.2

IUWS given academic honors From IDS reports

IU women’s soccer had 16 members named to the Academic All-Big Ten list on Wednesday afternoon. Student athletes have to earn at least a 3.0 GPA, play at some point in the 2017 season and play on their respective team for at least two seasons. The Hoosiers’ 16 players recognized is the most since 2013 when IU

had 17 on the list. The team has had at least 14 members named every year since 2010. Sophomore midfielder Allison Jorden was one of 18 Big Ten student athletes with a 4.0 GPA. It’s the third time being honored for seniors Kayla Smith and Kylie Kirk and junior forward Annelie Leitner. Juniors Abby Allen, Caroline Dreher,

Justine Lynn, Maya Piper and Mykayla Brown earned it for the second consecutive year. It’s a first-time honor for sophomores Chandra Davidson, Julia Gilliam, Jorden, Emma Kershner, Sydney Kilgore, Kyndal McKinney, Macy Miller and Meghan Scott. Phillip Steinmetz

top to bottom,” junior midfielder Francesco Moore said. “Watching some of the games, you can see how they like to play. They keep possession a lot, they spread the field and they have a lot of guys that are very quick and talented. Overall, they are ranked third for a reason, they’re in the final four two years in a row for a reason and we’re excited to play them.” The Tar Heels have won three straight matches since then, in order to reach this point in the tournament, defeating North Carolina-Wilmington, SMU and Fordham. North Carolina hasn’t had too much success against prominent opponents, going 1-1-1 on the season against teams ranked in the top-10. On the flip side, the Hoosiers went 2-1-1 against top10 opponents with their last result coming in penalty kicks in the Elite Eight over No. 7 Michigan State. In such an emotional game, IU hopes to keep riding their hot streak

— just beating out his fellow recruit’s average score of 73.8. Reynolds will come to Indiana from Christ Church Episcopal School in Greenville, South Carolina. Reynolds’s 2017 season included four top-10 finishes, along with a tied-for-4th finish at the South Carolina Junior Championship. Along with the individual resume Reynolds has built, he comes from a school that will look to win its sixth consecutive state title in the spring. Both Davis and Reynolds will look to bring success to the men’s program which had just one top-five finish in the 2017 fall season at the Windon Memorial Classic in Evanston, Illinois. However, Mayer expects the recruits will affect much more than just play onthe-course. “Mitchell and Harry are two of the more passionate young men that we have ever recruited,” Mayer said. “They will bring that passion to our program as well an extremely high level of intensity. They both have outstanding resumes and both fully understand what it takes to play at this level.” Stefan Krajisnik into the College Cup. “Every single game that we go into we’re confident that we’re going to get the result that we want,” Moore said. “Obviously last game, with that atmosphere, with all those people there, it was kind of like ‘Damn. We are going to a penalty-kick shootout, and we haven’t done that well in those.’ But there was no way that we were losing that game with all those people there in that environment.” The Hoosiers will take on North Carolina in Philadelphia with a place in the national championship on the line at 8:45 p.m. Friday. The Hoosiers are looking for their ninth national championship in program history as well. “We have a great challenge on Friday against UNC,” IU Coach Todd Yeagley said. “They’re as talented as any other team in the country. They’re dynamic and have excellent attackers. They’re a team that is very confident, as they should be with the schedule they had this season, so we’ll have our work cut out but we’re excited about it.”

‘Lady Bird’ soars on Rotten Tomatoes ‘LADY BIRD’ Saoirse Ronan

GRADE A By Jesse Pasternack jpastern@indiana.edu @jessepasternack

“Lady Bird” is a career high for lead actress Saoirse Ronan. It is one of the funniest and most moving films about a young adult. With it, writer-director Greta Gerwig establishes herself as a distinctive and exciting cinematic voice. The third act is a little long, but it is still an engrossing movie. The film takes place in Sacramento, California, from 2002 to 2003. High school senior Christine prefers to be called Lady Bird and dreams of going to college on the East Coast. Lady

Bird learns about life as she acts in the school musical and dates two different men. Ronan is excellent as the title character. She does a great job at capturing her yearning for a better life and her complex relationship with her mother. Ronan expertly nails each of her many witty lines. There are a lot of great jokes in “Lady Bird.” Every character has a specific voice and type of humor that coalesces well together. A running gag about a football coach directing a play is one of the funniest things I’ve seen this year. Even as it piles on humorous moments, this movie never loses sight of its characters’ hardships. There is some great commentary about class in America and how we should treat people.

MOVIE STILLS DATABASE

“Lady Bird,” directed by Greta Gerwig, was released Nov. 3. The movie is set in California and follows a teen who prefers to be called Lady Bird as she navigates her senior year of high school.

Laurie Metcalf’s performance as Lady Bird’s mom is an emotional look at how people deal with their pain.

“Lady Bird” is even more exciting when you realize it is the first film that Gerwig has directed by herself. She

is primarily known as an actor in films such as “Frances Ha” and “Maggie’s Plan.” Every shot that she composed

with director of photography Sam Levy has a great confidence to it. The supporting cast in this film is fantastic. Beanie Feldstein is hilarious as Lady Bird’s best friend Julie. Lucas Hedges is endearing as Danny. Pulitzer prizewinning playwright Tracy Letts delivers a complex performance as Larry, Lady Bird’s father. This movie isn’t perfect. The third act in particular has too many false endings. Nevertheless, the last scene is still well-acted and moving. “Lady Bird” is another triumph for Ronan, who is such an exciting, young actor. The writing and the cinematography add to its status as a very funny and warm film about adolescence. You can’t help but feel excited for Gerwig’s new career after seeing this movie.

FOOD COLUMN

The only Avocado juice: a must gift from 2017: Music. Hannah Reed is a senior in journalism.

RACHEL ROSENSTOCK | IDS

Avocado juice is a delicious way to drink an avocado-based smoothie that incorporates dates, almonds or lemon. Food columnist Rachel Rosenstock first encountered the drink while traveling to Morocco.

Rachel Rosenstock is a senior in journalism.

As a parting gift this semester, I present the only recipe you will ever need for the rest of your life. In all seriousness, I present to you: avocado juice. I know this sounds really weird and even a little gross, but think of it like an avocado-based smoothie. I was also confused by the name, until I drank this delectable green nectar and was changed forever. I first encountered the wildly delicious avocado juice phenomenon in Morocco last semester during my study abroad trip. There are countless variations of ingredients added

into avocado juice, and I was delighted to try many of them during my trip. Most juices begin with the base of avocado, of course, and a type of milk, but can also feature add-ins such as dates, almonds or lemon. The sky is really the limit when it comes to avocado juice combinations, and I encourage anyone making it for the first time to experiment. After returning from the trip, my friends and I immediately went into a deep mourning over the loss of our daily and cheap avocado juice. Unwilling to be without our magically creamy drink for the foreseeable future, we headed to the store for supplies. Many modifications and taste tests later, we found a few reliable ingredi-

ent combinations that churn out a satisfying juice every time. First, I would recommend two to three avocados, depending on size, for a single serving. Then, pick your milk-base of choice. I prefer almond milk, but most will work. To add an element of sweetness, use honey or agave. Those will also serve to bind the mixture together a little bit. Finally, add a high quality, thick yogurt. My personal favorite is Noosa vanilla bean for the added flavor. Measurements for the milk, honey and yogurt will depend on your personal preference of either a thick or runny juice. I’ve found that using about ¼ cup milk, ¼ cup yogurt and two to three tablespoons of sweetener

usually does the trick for a consistency between thick and thin. From there, you can go crazy. I don’t think I’ve encountered anything yet that detracts from the splendor of avocado juice. A few more suggestions for add-ins: fresh or frozen strawberries, spinach, if you want to be even healthier I guess, and cucumber to make the beverage even more refreshing. Adding ice to your concoction is also a lovely touch, especially for summer months, but we’re currently in the dead of winter so hold off on this. Take my advice, and let avocado juice into your life. @rachrosenstock rarosens@indiana.edu

This year felt like a short year. It seems like just yesterday everyone was receiving their 2016 most listened to songs, albums and artists from Spotify. It does not feel like it has been almost a year since John Mayer released the first singles off his newest album, “The Search for Everything,” and it most certainly does not feel like December 2017. Maybe it’s the late winter heat wave — which we should all be nervous about by the way, but that is a different topic — or maybe it is the stress of finals. Regardless, 2017 was a year that felt like two weeks. Throughout the 12 months that sprinted right past us, we were given several gifts – albums. There was so much new music this year that it was almost too difficult to keep up. For example, in April alone we were given several works of art. We received “DAMN.” by Kendrick Lamar, “Pure Comedy” by Father John Misty, “All-Amerikkkan Bada$$” by Joey Badass, “The Search for Everything” by John Mayer, “Season High” by Little Dragon, “Cracked Actor (Live Los Angeles ’74)” by David Bowie, “9” by Cashmere Cat, “Humanz” by Gorillaz and “III” by Foster the People. It is true that every year feels like the best year for music, but this year felt different. We got things we did not realize we were waiting for. We finally got new Lorde and SZA after waiting for year. We saw collaborations with people on the Top 40 that I never would have expected, pop singer Hailee Steinfeld with Florida Georgia Line, for example.

We started the year with Taylor Swift taken off of Spotify and ended it with her newest album, “Reputation” on the streaming service a week after it was released. For the most streamed artists on Spotify in 2017, Ed Sheeran, Drake and Kendrick Lamar all made it into the top five. Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande made it into the top streamed female artists, and Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and Linkin Park all made it into the top streamed artists (group form), according to Time. But while there were gains this year, there were also losses. We lost several great artists. We lost childhood staples like Chester Bennington from Linkin Park, Tom Petty and Chris Cornell from Soundgarden and Audioslave. We also lost promising new talent, like Lil Peep, 21, who blended hip-hop and emo into a sort of genre of his own and Tyler Hedstrom, the 17-year-old drummer from Anarbor. We lost legends like Chuck Berry — Johnny B. Goode, anyone? — Gregg Allman from The Allman Brothers Band and Malcolm Young from AC/DC. These are only a few of the artists that we mourned this year. While mourning artists and binging their music is important, it is also necessary to keep looking forward to the good things coming. Next year holds promise for some new music by Vampire Weekend, Bastille, Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, MGMT and The Vaccines, according to NME. So, who knows? Maybe next year we will be able to say 2018 was the best year of music yet. hanreed@umail.iu.edu

EDITORIAL BOARD

State’s upcoming smoking legislation is a mixed bag In the 2018 legislation agenda, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce has included a four-part proposal to combat smoking in Indiana. The proposal contains a slew of traditional antismoking policy, some of which will drastically change the lives of smokers in Indiana. While some policies, such as raising the legal age to buy tobacco to 21, have had positive public health effects nationally, other aspects of the proposal such as repealing the Smoker’s Bill of Rights, a law which states that employers cannot refuse to hire smokers, appear explicitly anti-working class. Reducing smoking should be a goal of any smart approach to public health and poverty reduction, yet openly punishing smokers who belong to the working poor undermines any such effort. One of the legislative plan’s major pushes would be to change the legal age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21. A concurrent trend to make tobacco liable to the same age restrictions as alcohol is occurring across the country, from San Antonio to Oregon and Topeka, Kansas. Such an overhaul would likely anger the many smokers at IU between the ages of 18 and 21, not to mention the local businesses that rely on the tobacco purchases of college students. Mike Fisher, owner of The Briar &

The Burley tobacco store in downtown Bloomington, estimates that about a quarter of his sales come from students under 21. One could argue that 18-year-olds are legal adults and can make their own decisions or that kids will get their hands on cigarettes one way or another. Both these compelling arguments are made for lowering the drinking age, and alcohol, after all, is comparable to tobacco use in danger posed to the body. Yet scientists view raising the minimum tobacco age more favorably. Some estimate that raising the age could result in 50,000 fewer tobacco-related deaths per year and a 12 percent decline in smoking rates. Smoking rates in Indiana could benefit from such a change. The state’s smoking rate is at 21.2 percent, six points higher than the national average, with smoking among Indiana high schoolers at 11 percent. However, another part of the Chamber of Commerce’s plan is to repeal the state’s Smoker’s Bill of Rights. If repealed, businesses in Indiana would reserve the right to not hire someone who smokes. Such policy is an attack on the ability for those working for hourly wages to take a smoke break. Another proposal by the Chamber, raising the cigarette tax, would disproportionately affect those with less of an ability to pay

for cigarettes. These overt anti-worker policies should make anyone suspicious of the Chamber’s motivations on this issue. It cannot be forgotten

that as smoking is reduced in the United States, its disastrous public health repercussions are felt elsewhere. Cigarette companies have not vanished, and they

have found more susceptible foreign markets. About 40 percent of men in low and middle-income countries smoke. Other projections by the World Health

Organization state that currently six million people die globally from smoking each year, and if this trend continues, eight million will die annually by 2030.

US and NATO should take blame for the Libyan slave trade

Don’t oppose the use of technology for younger generations

Lucas Robinson is a senior in English and political science.

Reports of the ongoing African slave trade in Libya has rightfully outraged the world. The growing consciousness of this tragedy on social media has created much needed attention, causing many to decry the inhumanity of our world and the reemergence of the abhorrent and racist practice of slavery. Yet, when a story like this goes mainstream, it’s important to ask what is missing from media reports. In this case, the missing link is obviously the United States and NATO overthrow of the anti-imperialist Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011. It is difficult to discuss the Libyan slave trade without making the objective link to the chaos caused by regime change, as well as the fact that many of the rebels supported by the US and NATO have since doubled as anti-black death squads. Barely any articles on this issue even mention Qaddafi’s overthrow, let alone US-NATO involvement. It is easy for the news media to forget that only six years ago, NATO ran 26,000 air strike sorties against a government that supported black liberation struggles around the world. Furthermore, repression of black Libyans and Africans by Western-backed rebels was noted in the

earliest days of the war. The killing of black Libyans accused of being “Qaddafi mercenaries” began simultaneously with increased rebel military activity. Some rebels, found by the United Kingdom Parliament to be rife with “Islamic extremism” from the start, frequently called themselves “the brigade for purging slaves, black skin.” In 2011, Human Rights Watch was reporting that Libyan militias had destroyed the predominately black city of Tawergha. By 2013, it was found the militias had ethnically cleansed the city’s 40,000 residents. Therefore, the current slave trade in Libya is the result of a long process of genocide against blacks in North Africa, ignited directly by the US and NATO’s support for Islamic shock troops in 2011. Though silly with excitement at the time of Qaddafi’s overthrow, the New York Times now confesses “None of this would be possible if not for the political chaos in Libya since the civil war in 2011, when — with the involvement of a NATO coalition that included the United States — Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi was toppled. Migrants have become the gold that finances Libya’s warring factions.” How we use these facts to evaluate the legacy of Barack Obama’s tenure as president must become a larger discussion. Another infuriating part of the conversation is how Democrats can share

a Facebook video about the Libyan slave trade and, in the next breath, share a teary-eyed praising of Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Liberals are long overdue for a reality check about the foreign policy of the former administration and its legacy of smiley-faced, pragmatic militarism. Yet we must also depersonalize the subject of U.S. imperialism and its consequences beyond individual politicians. Any social movement that wants to change this darkening country must have at its core an uncompromising opposition to the United State’s foreign policy and its role as a global superpower. Decades of an unchecked and murderous military machine has turned our hearts black and minds dull. Our ability to stomach mass shootings and police violence at home is directly related to our tolerance for the torture of innocents in Guantanamo Bay, drone bombings of civilians or the glorification of the bloodstained U.S. soldier in the media. Questions of race, gender, violence and poverty all flow from the fact that our government is a global empire and dictatorship. Our wealth is stolen from Latin America, Africa and Asia. Only beginning to dismantle our global military will salvage our national politics. luwrobin@indiana.edu

Facebook announced this week its new messaging app for kids. Messenger Kids allows photo sharing, video calling and texting under the explicit supervision of a parent or guardian. Social media is already permeating every aspect of society, but now people are questioning how young is too young to participate in this social technology. Our parents’ generation grew up with limited access to technology and virtually no access to social media until people were well into adulthood. The home computer was not a concept until 1971, let alone laptops, cell phones or social media. Generations Y and Z were born into the world of portable and easily accessible internet, as well as a slew of technology that enhances how we communicate with one another. For the first time, a generation was born that has never known life without internet. Although it is important to emphasize interpersonal interaction beyond phones and computers, there is no reason to discourage younger generations from engaging in the technology available to them. The internet has made information accessible to virtually anyone, regardless of social class or abil-

ity. Social media has made it feasible to speak to family and friends who are far way without the cost of long-distance calling or the wait of the postal service. The internet coupled with social media offers opportunities not previously available to generations at such a young age – and that’s a good thing. We now have a generation of kids growing up with basic knowledge of Microsoft Office, online search engines and social media websites. This means that when the time comes to utilize these in the workplace or in school, kids will be less likely to struggle with technologyrelated learning curves. Yet not everyone is excited by this premise. The main concern about apps and websites targeting this young demographic is privacy and safety concerns – with good reason. With a spike in internet usage by kids, parents are concerned about predatory adults on the internet. It is estimated that 86 percent of children ages 5-7 and 96 percent of children ages 8-11 are regularly active on the internet. Children are especially vulnerable online. They could release too much information such as their names, whereabouts and pictures. More than 82 percent of online sex crimes originate from social media sites. The idea that children younger than 18 use social media coupled with these

statistics have parents worried. However, the discussion needs to revolve around internet safety rather than mere internet usage. The world of technology is growing every day to include various security measures to ensure the privacy and security of users, especially minors. In April of 2000 the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was enacted to help aid this conversation as well as direct parents on how to ensure the safety of their children when they use the internet. COPPA said all websites must require parental consent for collection or use of any personal information of online users under the age of 13. The Federal Trade Commission’s commentary on COPPA urges websites to require a confirmation email from a parent when a child is signing up for social media. Most social media websites, including some email providers, require parental consent to sign up for services. Some, like the Messenger Kids app, require a parent to set up the account and monitor it. Having conversations with children about the content they post and who they talk to online is the best way to ensure children’s online safety – without discouraging the advances technology has to offer. anneande@indiana.edu

THE COFFEE CHRONICLES

Alex Azar is not fit to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services President Trump nominated Alex Azar for Secretary of Health and Human Services on Nov. 13, 2017, after former Sec. Price left for spending taxpayer money on charter jets. After his hearings in the Senate, it has become evident that Azar is not fit for a position that puts him in charge of the health of millions of Americans. Azar is the former president of the United States division of Eli Lilly, a pharmaceutical company. He has prior experience in the public sector, as the deputy Secretary of

HHS under President Bush. President Trump stated that Azar would “be a start for better health care and lower drug prices.” And, in the past, Azar has aligned himself with the president’s views, citing that the Affordable Care Act is a “fundamentally broken system.” However, Azar’s actions as a pharmaceutical executive do not seem to match the president’s statements. In his 10 years with Lilly, the prices for insulin, a bestseller for the company, almost tripled. In 2014, prices increased on some medica-

tion between 19 and 24 percent. This was followed by increases in 2015 and 2016 as well. The price increases have continued through this year. In May of 2017, Lilly increased the prices of nine drugs by 6 to 10 percent. These drugs included insulin, as well as blood thinners and Prozac. While Azar may be a successful president of a pharmaceutical company, these successes put him at odds with Trump’s messages about the drug companies. In October of this year,

Trump stated that he wanted to reduce the prices of prescription drugs. He said the “drug companies were ‘frankly getting away with murder.’” The administrations past actions worked to lower drug prices. On Nov. 1, 2017, the administration changed the hospital outpatient payment rule to help lower the cost of drugs for those on Medicare. Because of this alone, Azar’s past actions contradict the message from the administration. When undergoing questioning by the Senate, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, said he needed to be con-

vinced that Azar would help American people over pharmaceutical companies. When discussing the price hikes for insulin that occurred during Azar’s tenure at Lilly, Azar stated Lilly’s actions helped make the company money, but did little to help patients. Lilly also received information about the price of insulin from the attorney generals of California, Florida, Minnesota, New Mexico and Washington. Trump has used strong rhetoric against drug prices and that message, and

the American people have matched that outrage. In January of 2017, Mylan increased the price of the Epi-pen and was met with a social media and public relation outrage. Trump seemed to match this dissatisfaction. If the President wants to prove he is sincere in his dedication to lower drug prices, he should not appoint the man responsible for the price hikes of insulin and other lifesaving medications. Doing so would be contrary to his goals. npatwari@indiana.edu
