IU ready to play streaky Wildcats By Sam Beishuizen email@example.com | @Sam_Beishuizen
Northwestern Basketball Coach Chris Collins wanted a clean start. His Wildcats were blown out 68-44 by Michigan State at home Feb. 10. It was his team’s 10th consecutive loss, and finding motivation was becoming increasingly difficult. So he hit the reset button. In his mind, Northwestern’s record was 0-0, and since then, everything has changed.

The Wildcats have a chance tonight to win a fourth consecutive Big Ten game for the first time since January 1967. The first Super Bowl came that month. “It was coming all year, I don’t think there’s any question,” IU Coach Tom Crean said of Northwestern’s success. “This league, it’s hard to get any traction, and they’ve certainly gotten some, but it’s been because they’ve been so close in so many games.” SEE IUBB, PAGE 6 IU (19-9, 9-6) vs. Northwestern (13-14, 4-10) 7 p.m. tonight, Big Ten Network

Gov. Mike Pence signs into law SEA 62, a bill which will shorten this year’s ISTEP test. The bill passed unanimously in both houses.
Tightened test As the new ISTEP approaches, stress levels rise By Hannah Alani email@example.com | @HannahAlani
Mateo isn’t generally anxious. But if he comes home with the tiniest bit of unease, Cathy Fuentes-Rohwer says she’ll know exactly what to tell her child: “Those tests are for making rich people richer,” Fuentes-Rohwer said. “Do your best, but don’t worry about it.” Mateo is a fourth grader at Childs Elementary School and will be taking the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress — ISTEP — test in the upcoming weeks. The exam is two parts, and the first part will be administered in March to Indiana public school students in grades three through eight. Students in Algebra I and English 10 will also take a version of the 2015 ISTEP exam. The ISTEP results determine federal funding and have created “pressure cookers” in Indiana classrooms, Fuentes-Rohwer said, adding that Childs’ classroom time has been eliminated for test preparation. “I don’t think any child should be pulled out of art, music and gym to get ready for this test,” Fuentes-Rohwer said. “Those subjects might be the hook that makes them feel good about themselves. It might be the hook that makes them want to come to school. Our teachers and administrators are being put into a very, very hard position from our state legislature.” On Tuesday, Gov. Mike Pence signed into law SEA 62, the bill which allows the Indiana Department of Education to shorten this year’s 2015 ISTEP test. Edward Roeber is the consultant who reviewed and made recommendations for shortening the ISTEP. The maximum cost for Roeber’s contract is $22,000. The contract identifies two phases of work, each valued at $11,000, according to a press release. The two-part exam would have been more than 12 hours for third graders. The
bill passed unanimously in both houses. “Hoosier students, teachers and parents can breathe easier now that this year’s ISTEP test will be significantly shortened,” Pence said in a press release. “I also am grateful for the collaboration between our administration, the Superintendent and the Department of Education to achieve this reform.” This “collaboration” between the Pence administration and Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz has been a messy period of transition. The Indiana House and Senate voted to remove Ritz from her position as chair of the State Board of Education last week. She is the only elected Democrat serving in the Indiana state legislature. Ritz attended a rally at the Indiana Statehouse last week where Fuentes-Rohwer spoke about the importance of public education. The battle between public education advocates such as Fuentes-Rohwer and the Indiana Republican Party’s plans for education testing is not unique to Monroe County. Parents in West Lafayette have chosen to opt out of the ISTEP. Their children will be allowed to be home-schooled through the testing period and re-enrolled as students after testing has ended, according to a WTHR report from Feb. 13. The Superintendent of Public Schools in West Lafayette Community School District told WTHR he supports parents who wish to not subject their children to the stress of the state testing environment, which determines funding and students’ ability to advance grade levels. “It’s inhumane what we are doing to the kids, what we are doing to the educational environment. We lost so much instructional time today, it’s ridiculous,” Superintendent Rocky Killion said in the report, referring to technical difficulties that prohibited a SEE ISTEP, PAGE 6
ISTEP+Timeline The ISTEP+ test has gone through various revisions since its inception in 1987, including which grades take the test. 1987 ISTEP is created. 1988 ISTEP is first administered to grades one, two, three, six, eight and nine in the spring. 1995 ISTEP changes to ISTEP+ for grades three, six, eight and 10 during the fall semester.

‘Rain’ pays tribute to the Beatles on Tuesday By Cassie Heeke firstname.lastname@example.org | @cnheeke
John, Paul, George and Ringo —they’re simple names that have gone down in global history. Though Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney continue to make new music and tour as solo artists, “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles” attempts to instead bring back the excitement from the height — and fall — of Beatlemania. Rain performed at IU Auditorium on Tuesday night. “I know it’s been said before, but it is the closest thing to seeing the Beatles, like the real Beatles,” said Bloomington resident Ryan Thayer, who saw Rain the last time it visited IU Auditorium in 2009. The show started with a psychedelic collage of Beatles memories — the British flag, the Abbey Road street sign, peace signs, the Ed Sullivan Theater and more — and a brief announcement. “We ask for you cooperation by not smoking ... anything.” The ultimate “throwback”
began with an energetic performance of “She Loves You” in the Beatles’ traditional set up — Paul, John and George in front with Ringo on a raised platform behind them. This Beatle-specific set-up was pointed out in a pre-show talk by Glenn Gass, a Jacobs School of Music professor and the developer of IU classes devoted solely to the Beatles and Bob Dylan. The talk was standing room only in a room inside Woodburn Hall. Gass shared many striking moments in Beatles history and pointed out the incredible complexity in the Beatles’ songs that is often overlooked. He had the audience harmonizing along as they learned minute details within the scores. More than anything, he showed those in Woodburn Room 121 the love the Beatles had for each other using short clips and anecdotes. “Teletubbies and the Beatles — they loved each other very much,” Gass said to a chuckling RACHEL MEERT | IDS

Sorority fashion show spreads awareness By Brett Dworski @bdworski | @BrettD93
Mary Christopoulos walked on stage and, after a quick introduction, told the audience what she said she felt needed to be heard. “You are all beautiful, each and every one of you,” she said. The audience applauded, and the emcees introduced the night’s first model. “This is Sam, and she’s a world traveler,” one of them said. Twenty-four other models representing 14 IU sororities strolled down the runway one by one wearing tops from Bloomington’s own Bluetique Cheap Chic fashion store. Hundreds of girls flaunting their purple shirts saying “Just Wear It” sat among the crowd Tuesday evening in Alumni Hall to support the first annual “Comfortable in your Jeans” fashion show. Delta Phi Epsilon hosted the fashion show in order to raise money and awareness for The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and
Associated Disorders. Other performances featured music, dance and more from InMotion Dance Co., Another Round, Phi Kappa Sigma and others, as well as a description of The Body Project, an IU initiative to spread positive body images. Christopoulos, the event’s organizer, said many of the negative body image views women have are partly because of how women are portrayed in the media. “We dwell so much on how society thinks of us,” she said. “You are more than just a number on the scale. We want people to get up in the morning, look in the mirror and say, ‘I look good today.’” DPhiE Vice President of Programming Leslie Palans said their event puts a spin on typical fashion shows because the models get to wear whatever they feel comfortable in. “Being able to wear what they want gives them the confidence to rock out on the runway,” she said. Palans also said the event is important for a college campus because of the constant
pressure women 18-25 have to keep up appearances. “Eating disorders affect a lot of people, especially younger people in college,” she said. “We want to spread the message that you are beautiful the way you are and should never be ashamed of the way you look.” Participant Ashley Fields said she decided to model in the show because she’s always been passionate about raising awareness for different mental illnesses. “It’s a great opportunity to be apart of spreading a positive self-image,” she said. Model Madeline Fletchall said the fashion show was a great way to get involved with helping a common cause among younger women. “Girls from so many different backgrounds and sororities have come together to represent feeling comfortable in your own skin,” she said. Palans said although the fashion show’s proceeds are going toward a great cause, the money raised isn’t as significant as the awareness that can be gained and passed on.

IUSA teams up with IUPD for better communication By Ashleigh Sherman email@example.com | @aesherma
The IU Student Association is teaming up with the IU Police Department. The IUSA Congress passed two resolutions regarding IUPD and amended another resolution regarding sexual assault at an IUSA Congress assembly meeting Tuesday. Representatives unanimously passed a resolution expressing IUSA’s support of IUPD’s campaign to ensure all 911 communications from individuals located on campus to go directly to the IUPD dispatch. Under current procedures, all 911 communications go directly to the
Monroe County dispatch, where it is then forwarded to the IUPD dispatch, IUSA Chief of Policy Kevin Kuo said. Furthermore, IUPD cannot receive text messages when students use Textto-911 and, therefore, cannot respond via text message when students use the service, according to the resolution. “When we met with IUPD, they told us that they have had problems with communication because it’s literally a game of telephone where they’re passing on information,” Kuo said. The resolution expresses IUSA’s support of IUPD’s campaign to ensure that all 911 communications from
individuals located on the Bloomington campus, determined by the location of the individual’s phone, go directly to the IUPD dispatch. “The purpose of this redistricting is to make the line of communication between a student and IUPD more direct rather than changing who’s going to respond,” Kuo said. Representatives also unanimously passed a resolution urging IUSA Congress to create a new position, the holder of which would act as a liaison between IUSA and IUPD. “IUPD wants to make sure that we have some sort of permanent line of communication with them,” Kuo said. “It’s important for
IUPD to know what students want and it’s important for students to know what IUPD does.” Laury Flint, chief of police for IUPD, requested that IUSA create a position, the holder of which would act as a liaison between IUSA and IUPD, Kuo said. Representatives also amended a previous resolution urging IU Counseling Psychological Services to provide students who have been designated victims of sexual assault with free mental healthcare sessions. Though the original resolution did not specify, the amended one states that representatives urge CAPS to provide students who have been designated vic-
tims of sexual assault with free psychiatric sessions, as opposed to free individual counseling. The original resolution states that victims of sexual assault would receive free individual counseling until a licensed mental health care professional deems the sessions no longer necessary. The amended resolution, however, specifies that victims of sexual assault would receive free psychiatric visits until a psychiatrist deems the sessions no longer necessary. Though CAPS currently offers victims of sexual assault free mental health counseling through the Sexual Assault Crisis Service, it
does not offer free psychiatric visits. SACS, however, will waive fees for psychiatric care if a student is unable to pay and would not turn a student away because they cannot pay, Pete Grogg, director of the IU Health Center, said in an email. Furthermore, though CAPS currently offers those who have paid an IU Health fee two free counseling sessions, it does not offer free psychiatric visits to those who have paid the fee. “We just wanted to make sure that we weren’t giving false information, first and foremost, to you guys and to students,” Will Wartenberg, IUSA vice president of congress, said of the amendments.
IU projects chosen as award finalists By Cassie Heeke firstname.lastname@example.org | @cnheeke
Three IU projects have been chosen as finalists for TechPoint’s 2015 Mira Awards. TechPoint is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging technological innovation in Indiana. The projects include Kumo, the commercialization of One.IU and IU Online Virtual PC. The awards celebrate several different kinds of technology with 12 separate categories. In the past, IU has generally been nominated for the Education Tech Award, but two of this year’s finalists, Kumo and One.IU, will be competing in the Tech Services category, which “recognizes excellence and innovation in a traditional/ conventional IT project or initiative,” according to TechPoint’s website. “It’s interesting to say that the One and the Kumo projects are actually finalists in a category that is not just a higher education category,” said Dennis Cromwell, associate vice president for University Information Technology Services Client Services
and Support. Cromwell said those in the Tech Services category would be competing against companies and startups that wouldn’t be present in the education category. “It really is a nice recognition that they’re pretty creative things that we’ve done to service the faculty, staff and students at Indiana University, to be actually selected in these categories,” he said. One.IU was commercialized this year to be used at other campuses as an application program, and IU Online Virtual PC includes IUanyWare, which allows students to use certain software from their laptops, even if they don’t have it downloaded. The unit Cromwell leads manages the Kumo project, so he said he knows more about it than the other two finalists. It links programs such as IU’s Box, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. John Hoerr is the architect and lead developer of Kumo. He said the motivation behind it came from a need for easy access for students to retrieve their stored files from any account. “We kind of wanted it
to be something that was easy to set up and self-service, familiar enough that it wouldn’t be, well, confusing,” Hoerr said. The service can be found at cloudstorage.iu.edu, which allows students to link all of their storage accounts. Hoerr said Kumo took basically two rounds to develop. The first was a version that only IU had access to and took six or seven months to complete. After visiting conferences to share the idea, other schools became interested and wanted a similar service for their campuses. The development team rebuilt and rereleased the program in a way that other schools could take advantage of, which is the reason Kumo was nominated for the award. However, Hoerr said it wasn’t easy finding this solution. “You go down a lot of blind alleys,” he said. “You make a lot of mistakes before you find the thing that works. Sometimes, when you can be working on a problem ... there are almost more constraints than there are possibilities at first, and so we really sort of said, we looked at all the things that
were bounding us, bounding a solution, and kind of said, ‘What’s left?’ And we found a solution within all of those constraints.” The winners of the awards will be announced at a black tie event May 2 in Indianapolis. Cromwell said the publicity UITS gets from the awards is a good way to communicate to students about technologies they may not be taking advantage of. “I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in delivering technology that matters for Indiana University,” Cromwell said. Hoerr said he is also proud to be a finalist for the Mira Awards, but he is mostly happy with the product they created. While those behind widely-used programs at IU may not often be given a second thought by students, he said that’s the way it should be if he and his coworkers are doing their jobs right. “I think what we’ve done is really cool,” he said. “I think it’s still got a lot of potential to do new cool things, and, win or lose, I’m happy to be associated with it and to have done this for IU.”

Patricia Stowers (right), the first certified sex therapist in the state of Indiana, sits down with Dr. Debby Herbenick and local residents to have a conversation about human sexuality and her experience in sex therapy during Bloomington Sex Salon’s discussion on Tuesday evening at the Bishop Bar. The Bloomington Sex Salon holds monthly events hosted by Herbenick featuring a local guest speaker.
Sex therapist visits the Bishop By Lyndsay Jones firstname.lastname@example.org | @lyndsayjonesy
For Patricia Stowers, life had taken her from a woman living in 1950s Indiana to becoming the state’s first licensed sex therapist based out of Bloomington. Last night, she was a guest speaker at the Bloomington Sex Salon, an event designed to spark dialogue about sexuality. Debby Herbenick, associate research scientist at IU’s School of Public Health, led the event in a talk-show format. Herbenick sponsors each salon. “We started these salons about two years ago,” Herbenick said. “I think our hope is that they help create these conversations within ourselves and our community.” The back room of the Bishop, where the event took place, was full — extra chairs were brought out for people that kept trickling in to hear Stowers speak. Near the back, Gabbi Sloan shared a table with some of
her girlfriends. Sloan said she had been to all but two of the 13 salons because she thought human sexuality was an important subject. “This isn’t commonly done,” Sloan said. “We should be able to talk about it.” Sloan said the events have always been at a bar because the environment would be more casual and people could drink. “We’re still a little Victorian, I think,” Sloan said. If society still leans Victorian, Stowers is the complete opposite. She said her husband told her before they were married that he thought he was bisexual. Stowers said it didn’t matter to her. “We just learned together,” she said. “We were very open.” Stowers credited her husband for getting her into sex therapy at a time where the idea was nearly inconceivable. “Fred said, ‘How would you like to be a sex therapist?’” Stowers said. “I was
like, ‘What!’” Not long after her husband proposed the idea, they went to the Masters and Johnson Institute in Saint Louis, Mo., then came back to Bloomington and began working. Stowers said she believes many people have misconceptions about the work that sex therapy entails. “Some people think it is about watching people have sex,” Stowers said. Stowers said she and her husband worked as sex therapists at the student health center before starting a private practice in the 1970s. “If only we had that now,” Herbenick said. Stowers nodded in agreement. Though the dialogue about sex has opened considerably since Stowers first began her practice, misunderstandings persist. She recounted an incident with one of her female students at IU. “I was approached by a young college girl who asked if you had to have had sex to take my course,” Stowers said.
“I almost lost it.” After Stowers talked about her history, audience members began to ask her questions. One woman began with a simple question. “What would you tell someone who hasn’t had an orgasm?” she said. Stowers said she would evaluate the question the individual was asking. “What does an orgasm mean?” Stowers said. “Blip, it just happened, or is it flailing around on the bed and the floor with sparks flying?” Another member asked how Stowers had seen women change throughout the years. “I think they have been more willing to explore, at least in theory,” Stowers said. “There is more permission granted than it was in the 1950s. I’m not sure that each and every woman really knew what an orgasm was.” Herbenick asked Stowers to explain why she enjoyed sex therapy. “Because everyone has a different story,” Stowers said.
Council responds to Anthem breech By Neal Earley email@example.com
The Monroe County Council met Tuesday evening at the Monroe County Courthouse for its regular work sessions. Six items, including discussion of the Anthem data breach and options for a contract with emergency dispatch software provider Spillman Technologies Inc., were on the agenda for the meeting. In February, Anthem, a nationwide health insurance company that provides coverage to many of the county government’s employees, had a breach in security in which up to 80 million separate costumer records were hacked. As of now, it is unclear whether any county employee had personal information stolen from the hacker said Eric Evans, director of the Monroe County IT department. The information stolen by hackers includes the dates of birth, social security numbers, email and home addresses. “We’ve had discussions
with Anthem,” Evans said. “At this point, they have not given us any confirmation that any of the data, any of our data, has been breached in this. The most prevalent concern that this creates is that email addresses were allegedly included in the data that was harvested in this. We’re concerned that there will be a prevalent uptick in the amount of fishing attempts.” Evans put the Anthem breach in perspective for the council. He said all similar data breaches from 1999 to 2009 totaled just under 40 million records, whereas the Anthem breach totaled about 80 million records. Nancy Panzarella of the county’s HR department said Anthem had been very responsive to the county’s questions, but she still does not know how the breach has affected the county. “I still have no idea if any of our members have been impacted or how many, and I asked Anthem as recently as this morning and still have no answer,” Panzarella said. Also up for discussion

at Tuesday night’s meeting was the contract with Spillman about the emergency dispatch software. As of now, the county has three options. First, to go on year-by-year contract with Spillmam. Second, to enter into a five-year pre-pay contract in which the county would save $591,000. Or third, to enter into a 10-year prepay agreement in which the county would save $703,000. But several members on the council, including council members Geoff McKim
and Marty Hawk, expressed concerns about entering into such a long-term agreement with Spillman. The council also approved the request by Beth Hamlin to fill a position in the prosecutor’s office. Lastly, the council did a review of the county’s budget and discussed a bill in the Indiana Senate that would allow for Monroe County to pose an income tax to expand public transportation into the extended parts of the county — not just inside the city of Bloomington.
There was a 20-percent increase in solar workers in 2014 in the United States, according to the Solar Foundation. In Indiana, however, there are 100 fewer jobs in the solar industry than there were one year ago. “A lot of other states have already accepted the fact that we need to diversify our energy harvesting,” said Alex Jarvis, owner of Solar Systems of Indiana. “Indiana is kind of going backwards.” Jarvis believes this regression appears in Indiana House Bill 1320, which will be brought to a vote this week. When people who have solar panels generate excess energy, they are allowed to sell that excess to utility companies. The companies pay the retail rate for that energy, which they then sell back to their customers at the same price. The bill, which has sparked heated debate between the utilities lobby and environmentalists, would decrease the amount of money solar energy producers could earn by cutting the amount utilities companies must pay for the excess energy. The bill would also let utilities charge a “user fee” for maintaining the electrical grid solar users take advantage of. Along with these monetary changes, the bill would establish new safety standards and guidelines for solar technology installation and allow citizens to lease solar equipment. “The main reason we’re supporting House Bill 1320 has to do with fairness,” said Dave Arland, a spokesperson from the Indiana Energy Association. “People who don’t have solar energy are subsidizing the costs of grid maintenance for those who do have solar. We still think people should be compensated for their excess energy, just not at the retail rate.” In response to this claim, Jarvis said solar users do indeed pay a metering fee to access the grid. He also suggested utility companies might have alternative motives for supporting the bill. “For them, it’s an opportunity to craft legislation that will give them more access to the technology and the ability to kind of control renewable energy activities,” Jarvis said. “They say that they’re going to start leasing energy equipment to people, but they’re going to twist the law so that you’ll really only have one place to turn for those leases, and that will be the utilities companies.” Arland said he believes this leasing ability will help solar power grow in Indiana. “The intent is not to kill solar in Indiana,” he said. “The intent is to help it grow by providing more avenues for people to get renewable power.”
“The main reason we’re supporting House Bill 1320 has to do with fairness. People who don’t have solar energy are subsidizing the costs of grid maintenance for those who do have solar. We still think people should be compensated for their excess energy, just not at the retail rate.” Dave Arland, spokesperson from the Indiana Energy Association
Arland echoed the claims presented by Mark Maassel, the president of the Indiana Energy Association, at the House committee hearing. The hearing was attended by the panel along with 42 people speaking against the bill, three people suggesting that the bill be delayed for further study, one neutral speaker and only two supporters of the bill, one of whom was Maassel. The opponents believe the bill would be detrimental for Indiana’s previously budding solar industry. Most of them are not demanding the bill be entirely rejected; they simply want more studies to be done before the state takes such a drastic step. “The utilities are using the political arena to make this legislation go quickly through the process without enough information to back up their claims,” Jarvis said. “Normally something like this would go through the public utility commission, which usually mandates a considerable amount of studies and evidence.” Kenneth Richards, a professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, discussed the complicated nature of the debate. It’s especially difficult, he said, to determine the economics of the net metering system or the ways in which the utilities buy energy from solar users. “Sorting out an efficient and equitable price structure for the net metering system is complex and needs to balance both the cost of production and distribution on the electric utilities side of things and the social benefits of diffusing the solar technologies,” Richards said. Jarvis said he believes the majority of the public would benefit by delaying the bill for further study, but fears Indiana’s conservative politics and the strength of the utilities lobby will push the bill into law. “It’s a political strongarm move driven by old conservative ideas,” he said. “It’s important for people to call their representatives and tell them what they think. Solar energy is an interesting market and an amazing field to work in. Hopefully, with more state-level support, we’ll be able to grow and grow.”

It’s time slut-shaming is put to an end This past weekend, my roommates and I went to the bars to enjoy ourselves after a difficult week. While out, four different men approached me and asked for my number. The next day, my roommates and I were socializing with a group of our closest guy friends. We recapped our fun night out and laughed about how many men approached me. One of our male friends asked if I gave all the men my phone number. “Well, none of them seemed creepy,” I said. “I did give them all my number.” “Slut,” one of our male friends said to me while laughing. He followed the remark by asking what clothing I wore out that night. This form of slut-shaming holds many false assumptions about a girl and makes the double standard between men and women so clear. It happens too often and needs to stop. This type of slut-shaming assumes the woman sought out the men first or dressed in a provocative way to draw the men’s attention. When this happens, a stigma is placed on a woman for receiving so much attention from men. Even if this assumption were to be true, there should be nothing wrong with a woman approaching men first. While out with friends or walking to class, I overhear many conversations between men talking about how many girls they had sex with in the past week. The other men in the conversation usually praise the guy for sleeping with more than one or two women in a short period of time. However, if a girl simply

gives her number out to multiple men without seeking them out first and without sleeping with them, she is accused of being a slut. There are many reasons why this slut-shaming continues to take place today. One key factor in slut-shaming is media. On many television shows for young adults, it can be noted that men are shown to be “playing the field” by dating or having a sexual relationship with many women. The men in these shows are often rewarded for it. However, many women in popular television shows are shown in monogamous relationships the majority of the time. These two representations create a stigma on girls who date or have sexual relationships with multiple men, while it idolizes men for doing the same thing. Slut-shaming is also reinforced in conversations among celebrities. One example of this is how Taylor Swift was made fun of at the 2013 Golden Globes for dating many men. Swift never dated more than one man at a time, but was still criticized for it. However, in December 2014, Leonardo DiCaprio was witnessed leaving a nightclub in Miami with 20 women at once. The situation was laughed at and DiCaprio drew praise for doing this. If we want slut-shaming to stop, we need to stop displaying it in mass media, which has a large influence on our social views. firstname.lastname@example.org

Shutdown for what? Thanks, GOP Oops. They’ve done it again. No, this isn’t the start of an uppity Britney Spears song. This is the Republican-led Congress of the United States possibly shutting down a branch of the government — again. The Department of Homeland Security will shut down Friday unless Congress decides to act, because funding for the department will expire before the rest of the government as part of the $1.1 trillion spending bill Congress approved in December 2014. But why shut down the government again after the political backlash from the last time around? This time, instead of blocking millions of Americans from having affordable health insurance, the GOP-led Congress wants to challenge President Obama’s executive action on immigration. House Speaker John Boehner suggested he would indeed let the department’s funding lapse if the Senate doesn’t pass a spending bill that would gut legal protections for five million undocumented immigrants. Ah, classic. And not only would the bill block the president’s most recent executive action on immigration reform, but it would also derail his 2012 executive action, which has offered relief to immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. The consequences of a government shutdown don’t just affect these DREAMers either, as many of the department’s employees will see their pay furloughed and hardworking Americans will be asked to work without a paycheck. And ironically, as history shows us, the political consequences for the Republican
Kajal Singh is a junior in policy and analysis.
Party will be pretty bad as well. Let’s turn the page back to 2013. In the aftermath of the government shutdown over the Affordable Care Act, approval ratings of the Republican Party took a deep plunge. Last summer, the Democratic National Committee even sent a satire bill to Ted Cruz for shutting down the government, and many Democratic organizations used the 2013 government shutdown as an opportunity to fundraise. The DNC’s letter stated, “As you and your Tea Party allies from the House gather to plot your next legislative misadventure, we want to make sure you had settled the tab with the American people for your government shutdown.” This is a pretty bad time for the Department of Homeland Security to shut down, as the president just asked Congress to declare war on the so-called Islamic State and there are very serious threats to American safety. So here’s to the GOP-led Congress. You once tried to block millions of Americans from obtaining reliable health insurance, and now you are trying to derail steps to help rebuild a broken immigration system. Oh and, in the process, you are furloughing hardworking Americans. Seriously, we are a nation built by laws and immigrants. Maybe it’s time the Republican Party started acting like it. email@example.com

Killing us sofrita WE SAY: This stuff will kill you, but it’s worth it The following story is about a day in the life of a college kid. You wake up at noon on a Saturday, the birds are chirping, your head is pounding and all you can think about is reaching for the Advil bottle that’s on your bedside table. Once you’ve showered and look decent enough to show your face in public, you decide to bus it to the Indiana Memorial Union to get some homework done. Also, there’s Starbucks. Saturday isn’t complete without the ‘bucks. Now it’s about 2 p.m. and you’re feeling pretty good about yourself. You haven’t had anything to eat yet, which is obviously helping you achieve a spring break bod. Once you get to Starbucks, you order a Caffe Mocha with whipped cream. After “studying” on Facebook and BuzzFeed for a few hours, you decide to be social. All of your friends are going to Chipotle for dinner, so you avoid the fear of missing out by joining in on the fun. At Chipotle, you order the usual — a healthy chicken bowl with brown rice, black beans, corn salsa, fajita veggies, cheese, guacamole and sour cream.
Oh, and don’t forget the chips. Aside from the annoying $1.80 that you had to pay extra for guacamole, you’re pretty content. The bowl was delicious and left you feeling full. Now that it’s nighttime, you’re finally ready to rally once again. Fast forward through a somewhat blurry night, and you’re back in your room. All you can think about is food. You find some friends to chip in money for a Pizza X order. You get the Big X Bargain with pepperoni pizza, breadsticks, coke and ranch. Pizza X is essentially nothing without the ranch. Two pieces of pizza and two breadsticks later, and you’re ready for bed. Clear eyes, full stomachs, can’t lose. This story is fairly relatable to many a college student. We can’t deny ourselves of the greatest pleasure in life — food. Recently, an article was published in The New York Times that startled many with the caloric count and daily sodium percentages of Chipotle food. Although those numbers might have scared the general public, at the Editorial Board we believe those numbers aren’t stopping anyone.
Let’s run though the above scenario again. A Caffe Mocha with whipped cream at Starbucks is 400 calories. The average chicken bowl sold at Chipotle is around 1,000 calories. Oh, and the chips are 570 calories. Gotta love that salty goodness. Two slices of pepperoni pizza, two breadsticks, some ranch dipping sauce and a coke from Pizza X comes out to the grand total of 1,188 calories. This is a mere two meals consumed in a day, and the caloric intake is over 3,000 calories. That’s a big number, but the bottom line is that all of our bodies are different. There’s 40,000 students attending IU and not one body replicates that of another. Although we should be promoting healthy lifestyles, we shouldn’t care about or judge what others eat. So upsettingly, Chipotle isn’t healthy, but as human beings we have the right to indulge in the finer things in life on occasion and in moderation. We might go to a school that’s good at math, but when it comes to food, it’s alright if we don’t care about the numbers.
ONE MORE THOUGHT
A wealth of human relationships I was reminded of something important this past weekend, and I think it is worth sharing. My parents served with a nonprofit organization that works with disadvantaged communities in the developing country of Papua New Guinea. It was grueling, thankless work, but they served faithfully and selflessly for over 15 years. By the end of their time of service, there was no doubt that they had succeeded in their mission of changing the communities in which they worked. They were able to see an end to child neglect, the oppression of women and a subsiding of the cruelness and violence that dominated the culture. They were honored during an event this past weekend in our small hometown
in northern Indiana. The event was largely focused on one particular thing — human relationships and how they can be changed for the better. Those were there were challenged to never forget the limitless value of human relationships and how they alone are the secret to fulfillment and growth, both individually and collectively. As I thought about that, I began to compare it to my time here at IU. I, like the rest of you, am here for one purpose – to get an education. Hopefully a good education, an education that will add value to my life and carry me where I need or want to go. But maybe that education should do more than just prepare my mind. Maybe in order for my education to be complete it needs to prepare me to invest in
people and not just my retirement account or my vocational skills. Relationships are an interesting thing. We all have them, need them and want them. But for some reason, it seems like most people don’t have great ones. Sure, most people have a group of people they hang out with, party with, etc. But do they have relationships that add meaning and change their lives for the better? These relationships are hard and they take work. I know for myself it is easy to get bogged down with everything else going on. I don’t want to be overly sentimental or romantic, but I truly believe that in the end we won’t be able to take much more out of this world than those who we have impacted for the better. This world and this

nation is not short on problems — we all know that. But what are we going to do to change that? How are we going to rise to the hurdles of our generation? I would submit to you that the only answer lies in the wealth of human relationships. Hopefully, while we are all going about our four years here, we do more than open a textbook. I hope we all invest in others, build relationships and strive to create the change we want to see around us. firstname.lastname@example.org

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
The keystone pipeline is land theft The United States Congress approved construction of the Keystone XL pipeline’s fourth phase Feb. 11, with the bill scheduled to land on President Obama’s desk for a likely veto sometime after the “President’s Day” recess. Near-unanimous support for Keystone from self-proclaimed “conservatives” and “libertarians” is disappointing but unsurprising. This government land grab is just the latest example of alleged “small government” advocates abusing their power at the expense of ordinary Americans. Despite their ceaseless rhetoric about free markets and limited government on the campaign trail, most Republican legislators — and the GOP’s 2016 presidential front-runners — openly embrace such robbery once in office. Completing Keystone requires the state to forcibly take large tracts of land from American farmers and homeowners through a process known as eminent domain. TransCanada Corporation — the
company behind Keystone — has sent Texans and Nebraskans threatening letters demanding they enter “negotiations” (read: Sell, at prices acceptable to TransCanada) or face legal condemnation and loss of their land. The company, with government assistance, has already stolen more than 100 tracts of land from Texans. Homeowners along the line connecting Oklahoma to Alberta are next. TransCanada also plans to use eminent domain against Oklahoma’s Sac and Fox Indian Nation, undermining tribal sovereignty and adding a new chapter to the U.S. government’s long history of land theft from Native Americans. In a free society, people and companies seeking to build on others’ lands must reach voluntary agreement with rightful owners. This stands in complete contrast to the approach of TransCanada and its GOP allies. Such theft gives unfair competitive advantages to its beneficiaries, greatly distorting the economy.
It is no coincidence the firms benefiting from eminent domain lobby heavily for its use. In a real free market they’d have to negotiate and compete without government favors of this kind. The Keystone land grab illustrates how supposedly conservative and libertarian politicians violate the freedoms and property rights of others. They have become part of a corrupt, coercive system that freely uses force against ordinary people when doing so suits its purposes. Ultimately, the state corrupts even the most principled advocates of liberty who join its ranks. Replacing the current system with a society based on voluntary interaction should be our ultimate goal. Until this happens, Americans need to recognize that allowing government to give stolen land to business interests is incompatible with freedom and must be opposed. James C. Wilson email@example.com
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Mandatory military service for Congress If it seems like only months ago that America’s warmongers were claiming there would be no need for United States troops on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State group, that’s because it was. When politicians initially decided to promote the Islamic State group to the position of threat du jour, they promised that threat could be eliminated without sacrifice of American lives. Defeating the Islamic State group would require only indirect measures, such as “support” for “our partners” in the region like “Jordan, Lebanon and the Syrian opposition.” U.S. Vice President Joe Biden laid this line down in an op-ed in the Washington Post. My, how times have changed. With President Obama’s new “Authorization for Use of Military Force” seemingly only a congressional rubber stamp away, the new talk is that U.S. boots on the ground are likely. And the proposed AUMF seems to confirm this. Commentators on NPR, MSNBC and Fox News agree that American combat troops are almost certain in the fight against IS. It’s as if a directive went out to the media to prep the public for the
maneuver. In light of this tactical change, I offer a modest proposal. Short of abolishing the U.S. military, I think it should be mandatory for all U.S. Congressmen and women to serve rotating tours of duty in American wars. Those whose constitutional obligation it is to make war would see firsthand the daily progress of what they’ve allowed to take place. For those in Congress who may be physically unable to handle the rigors of combat, surely we can find them some non-combat position within the theater of war so they’re still privy to the daily goings on. Sending those in Congress directly into the line of fire would eliminate their reliance on secondhand sources for progress reports. Congress would also be confronted with the horrors of war that they’re conveniently insulated from at present. For those in Congress who do keep track of American casualties, perhaps seeing charred bodies, blown off limbs and severe brain trauma might make DoD spreadsheets and newspaper reports more realistic. Seeing “enemy” casualties might also make Congress more sympathetic to the
chaos war creates for local populations. Instead of Joe Biden’s grandiose talk of a federalist government in a country he has no direct experience in, perhaps he and Congress might pay more attention to what it’s like to live in conditions where mass executions, use of human shields, roadside bombs and the cutting off of hands are the norm. For U.S. foreign policymakers, war is not unlike a video game. Press a few buttons here, issue a few directives there, and presto, events take a different turn. At night, they still sleep safely in their own beds, risking nothing more than their own political power. Until complete disbandment of the U.S. armed forces — or better yet, the entire state apparatus — becomes a topic open for discussion, let the coldblooded warmongers grapple with this thought experiment. I think they’re self-interested human beings like the rest of us, and forcing them to immediately confront what they’ve done to the world would make for a lot fewer wars. Or a lot fewer politicians.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Be wary of selective censorship In 1734, John Peter Zenger, publisher of The New York Weekly Journal, was arrested for his newspaper’s sharp criticism of then-Royal Governor of New York William Crosby. The prosecution argued the criticism was injurious to the colonial government. Zenger was eventually acquitted, and his principled defense of free speech would go on to inspire centuries of American journalists. That is, most American journalists. In its Feb. 16 editorial “Triple homicide alludes to hate,” the current Indiana Daily Student editorial board argues against the hard-won protections afforded to it by the First Amendment — and enjoyed by these three former IDS columnists — in favor of the same justifications for selective censorship wielded by Crosby and other would-be policemen of expression. The editorial points out “the impor-
tance of the language and politics surrounding our every move,” yet fails to grasp that very same importance when it calls for “penalizing destructive or slanderous actions, speech and print that target a specific group.” Was Zenger’s truthful criticism of Crosby and, by extension, the royal crown not “destructive” to a specific group? Crosby and the colonial government certainly thought so. While the board’s overall goal might be noble, it advocates for an exception to the First Amendment that swallows the rule. One of the many problems with censorship is that it always comes back to bite you. It never stays contained to the evil at hand, and just as soon as you allow it to go after the ideas that today’s majority considers “destructive,” it’s no longer 1734 and those ideas are no longer considered
verboten. As James Madison said, men are not angels. Even the most well-intentioned, well-crafted law will be subject to abuse in support of today’s many orthodoxies. Since the IDS’s editorial board has seemingly changed its mind on free speech since we were members, it should leave the same opportunity to future editorial boards — and not advocate for a government policy of selective censorship of minority opinions.

A United States judge rejected BP’s appeal last Thursday to pay a lesser amount than the original civil fine of $13.7 billion for its involvement in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion. And while this has given me some renewed faith in the U.S. justice system, I am still disturbed by the two-faced approach BP has taken towards this spill. After spilling more than 200 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico, BP took a hard stance on its intended commitment to the Gulf. In fact, BP’s CEO at the time, Tony Hayward, released out a video where he stated BP’s intentions to clean up its mess. “BP has taken full responsibility for cleaning up the spill in the Gulf,” he said. But BP hasn’t taken full responsibility for cleaning up the spill. The sad truth of the matter is that BP only took responsibility while the media spotlight was on it. Sure, they made those commercials where employees were cleaning oil off birds, showing their “commitment to the Gulf.” But when it comes to actually paying its debts, not only to the American environment but also the American people in the region, BP is only committed to its profit margin. A report by Doug Inkley of the National Wildlife Federation published in April 2014 shows we are nowhere near a clean Gulf of Mexico. “The oil is not gone” Inkley said. “There is oil on the

bottom of the Gulf, oil is washing up on the beaches and oil is still on the marshes.” The fact that oil itself is still there is disconcerting on its own; however, the truly horrific part of this is the loss of animal lives to oil-contaminated waters. The report stated that more than 900 bottlenose dolphins have been found dead or stranded in the oil spill zone, a much higher number than the average expected to be found. This isn’t the only loss from the spill. Untold billions of dollars were also lost in tourism and seafood production, a vital industry in the Gulf region. And yet people have completely forgotten about this tragic event. If anything, the fact that BP can even consider asking for a lesser civil punishment shows the ridiculously short length of the modern attention span. I’d very much like to blame this on the Internet and television killing our ability to focus, but honestly the fault lies completely at our feet. BP wrecked the gulf environment and handicapped fishing economies. This isn’t something we should simply let go after some time has passed. Reparations must be paid, and the judge in this case was absolutely right in denying BP’s request. firstname.lastname@example.org
IT’S A MAD, MAD WORLD
Seizing a golden opportunity During a rather unprogressive Oscars — one of the less diverse in the past few years — we made up for some of it with sheer political greatness. Before the 87th Annual Academy Awards, Reese Witherspoon took her appearance on the red carpet to promote #AskHerMore, a campaign on Twitter that demands reporters to ask more than “Who are you wearing?” Witherspoon’s push for equality reminds viewers that female nominees are “more than just (their) dresses.” The first joke of the night by our host, Neil Patrick Harris, made a direct hit on the fact that the 20 acting nominees for this year’s awards were all white. Patricia Arquette, after winning Best Supporting Actress for “Boyhood,” made a rousing acceptance speech that demanded wage equality. Her fierce words got a rise out of Meryl Streep in addition to hoots and hollers from Jennifer Lopez. Graham Moore accepted the award for Best Adapted Screenplay for “The Imitation Game” and made a stunning reveal about his attempted suicide when he was 16 years old. His speech included this golden phrase: “Stay weird, stay different, and then when it’s your turn and you are standing on this stage, please pass the message to the next person who comes along.” The film honors a World War II hero, Alan Turing, who was persecuted by his own country for being gay. Though the screenwriter had to correct assumptions about his sexuality — he’s actually straight, though many drew a connection between him and Turing — in an interview with BuzzFeed, Moore’s words on depression and being an outcast touched the hearts of those who feel “weird” and “different.” John Legend and Common’s performance of “Glory” from the film “Selma” brought many to tears, including David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine and, if I’m being completely honest, myself. But Legend can do more than manipulate your tear ducts. In his acceptance speech for “Glory,” he criticized America’s incarceration rate and left the crowd speechless with the startling statistic that “there are more black men under correction control today that there were under slavery in 1850.” The performance and speech were an altogether

moving sequence, ringing truth to Legend’s words that “Selma is now, because the struggle for justice is now.” The only shame is that one of the last moments of the show was the most offensive. After his co-presenter struggled with the simple task of opening an envelope, actor Sean Penn had the audacity to say “Who gave this son of a bitch a green card?” before announcing “Birdman” as Best Picture. If you’ve misunderstood Penn’s failed attempt at a joke, he’s referring to the Mexican filmmaker of the movie who won the award for Best Director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Inarritu told Access Hollywood he wasn’t offended by Penn’s joke and that the two had been friends for 10 years. But ‘friendly’ banter that involves racial implications isn’t appropriate to say on live national television. It was tasteless, whether or not the subject of said joke took it to heart. Thankfully, the last speech of the night came from Inarritu, who dedicated the Oscar to his fellow Mexicans in hopes that “they can be treated with the same dignity and respect of the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation.” Needless to say, it was a rather enlightened Oscars. Acceptance speeches are notorious for their legacies, as seen with Sally Fields’ “You like me” and Joe Pesci’s sweet, short “Thank you.” We critique stars on the red carpet under a powerful magnifying glass with Facebook and Twitter. And our hosts are analyzed and compared with the one from the year prior. Progress has been made when all these aspects of the show include forward thinking from our beloved participants. But that doesn’t excuse the blatant lack of diversity in the Academy’s nominee selections for 2015. Actions speak louder than words, and we can’t just talk about equality like it’s magically going to happen. Hopefully the Academy will listen to the outcry from these whistleblowers and stop pretending we don’t all know they’re selling us fool’s gold. email@example.com
audience. Thayer said he had taken Gass’ Music of the Beatles class as an IU student. “To know all of the background information and all the stuff about the Beatles ... and then see the show, it’s just that much more mindblowing,” he said. Following “She Loves You,” Rain led the crowd straight into “A Hard Day’s Night,” as an animated video of the four rock stars being chased by a crowd of screaming girls played in the background. This historic portrayal of each song continued as a scene of New York’s Shea Stadium lit up the background during “Help!” It was a tribute to the Beatles’ 1965 performance at the arena, the first major stadium performance in history. The members of Rain paid uncanny attention to the small details, from their outfits to their voices and inflections. However, one of the most captivating aspects of the performance was the use of lights and multimedia to transport the audience into the vibrant, hallucinogenic world of the Beatles in the 1960s. Abstract visuals accompanied each song during

noticeable,” Ferguson said. “It’s kind of fun to watch. He’s not embarrassed to do anything.” Aside from stage presence, Ferguson said DeVine appeals to college students specifically. DeVine’s tour includes stops at several college campuses beyond IU, including Syracuse on Tuesday and Iowa State on Friday. Junior Brooke Vielee said DeVine’s brand of comedy is relatable to college students. She said IU Auditorium has many family-friendly shows, but this is something catered toward college students. “He’s close to our age, so

the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” portion, in which the four performers sported the brightly colored attire found on the cover of the record of the same name. The visuals were mesmerizing illustrations of the songs themselves. Kaleidoscopic lights reflected over the ceiling and walls of IU Auditorium during “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and several
songs after. “Lucy” had the crowd singing along with Rain. Rain also had everyone on their feet during songs such as “Twist and Shout” and “Revolution.” At one point, the lead singer requested every audience member 20 years or younger to stand up. He told the older members of the crowd not to fret, that as long as they continued to dance and sing, they
too would remain young at heart. There were serious and introspective moments in the show as well. “Yesterday” and “As My Guitar Gently Weeps” were just two of the songs that had the audience in silent awe. IU student Alli Daniel accompanied Thayer to the performance. “Like top three best experiences of my life,” Daniel said.
he talks about a lot of things that we’re doing,” she said. Although she said she is as excited about his show as any other comedian’s, Vielee nabbed a front row seat. Sophomore Brody Forbes also said DeVine’s age made him the right choice for students. Although he is not attending the show, Forbes said he knows DeVine is on the rise. “The fact that he’s not too professional quite yet is more relatable to college students,” Forbes said. Union Board said it brings stand-up to IU to provide a change of pace from regular programming. “We definitely think it’s still something that’s really important to campus,”
Ferguson said. He said the success of a stand-up show such as DeVine’s boils down to name recognition. “I think people recognize his face more than his name right now,” he said. Although the show has sold only 1,000 tickets, Ferguson said there is still a market for comedy on campus. Vielee said comedy is an uncommon entertainment, so she likes the variety of comedians Union Board has brought to campus this year, such as Jay Leno and Kevin Hart. “Especially when you live in a small town, standup never really goes there,” she said. Forbes said comedy
provides students with an emotional outlet. “Comedy is an awesome art,” he said. “It’s one of those art forms that brings relief — just have an opportunity to laugh and enjoy yourself.” Vielee, on the other hand, does not know what to expect from DeVine. “I just know it’s going to be funny,” Vielee said. “That’s my only expectation.” DeVine announced on Twitter yesterday that he will star in Fox’s upcoming film “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” alongside actor Zac Efron. His own show, “Adam DeVine’s House Party,” and “Workaholics” can be seen on Comedy Central.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Close games were a struggle for Northwestern in the first half of the conference season. There was a five-game stretch in January where Collins felt the Wildcats were playing good enough basketball to win. They just weren’t closing out games. Junior guard Tre Demps missed a game-winner against Michigan State on the road. Maryland’s Dez Wells almost single-handedly led Maryland to a furious comeback win capped with a late tip-in. Freshman guard Bryant McIntosh couldn’t hit a high-percentage layup in the closing seconds in Ann Arbor, Mich., and gifted the Wolverines a win. Northwestern was finding any and all ways to lose games. Now, it’s finding ways to win. “The main difference now in the last couple of weeks is we’ve been able to win some close games and finish it out,” Collins said. “That’s been big for our guys to learn how to do that. It’s just great for our guys to have confidence where they do right now.” The Wildcats are shooting 44.3 percent from beyond the arc and making
“band-aid on a hemorrhaging wound,” Fuentes-Rohwer said she is hopeful for the future. “People are starting to wake up,” Fuentes-Rohwer said, adding that since the rally, she has received phone calls from parents in other Indiana counties who wish to emulate her efforts. “This is what the grassroots movement is.” While many of her friends have children with test anxiety, it is her hope that Mateo won’t be overly phased by the stress of the exams felt by teachers and administrators. “If he comes home with any slight worry, he knows that I don’t agree with those tests,” Fuentes-Rohwer said.
more than 10 3-pointers per game in their streak. At the same time, they’re limiting opponents to just 34.3 percent shooting in that span. Collins has just recently begun relying on a 2-3 zone defense that’s been effective in forcing poor shots. Crean compared the Wildcats’ zone to that of Syracuse or Michigan but said they can throw multiple looks IU’s way. “I don’t know if it’s anything that we look at, and we say, ‘Well, they’ll just play us this one way,’” Crean said. “Our bottom line is more understanding their personnel and doing what we have to do to keep moving the ball.” IU knows the significance of another road win at this point in the season. Junior guard Yogi Ferrell was quick to rattle off that a win would be IU’s fourth road win, 10th conference win and 20th overall win of the season. But against a confident Wildcats team, Ferrell said IU will need to play well to get out of Evanston with a win. He said teams can no longer afford to underestimate a once-struggling Northwestern team. “Northwestern is the hot team in the league right now,” Ferrell said. “We’re going to get their best shot.”

30 plays. Bloomington Playwrights Project to present a fundraiser in which actors attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes By Lanie Maresh firstname.lastname@example.org
Connie Shakalis, an IU alumna, moved to Bloomington a little more than a year ago and immediately looked for an acting opportunity. Having had previous experience in many main stage productions, Shakalis said she was eager to attend a community audition for a role in a Bloomington Playwrights Project production. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Shakalis will be a part of BPP’s annual fundraiser, “The Blizzard: 30 Drinks in 60 Minutes!” that will run through Saturday night. “My neighbor said I’d love it. He told me BPP is a great place for actors and performers,” Shakalis said of her first audition. “I knew they had a good reputation, so I wanted to audition for them.” When Shakalis found out she got a part in the BPP event, she thought it would be another simple show. But she was wrong. The fundraiser features eight ensemble members who will try to perform 30 individual plays in just 60 minutes. The audience chooses the order in which each play will be performed. “It’s a different show all three nights, and they perform against a timer, and when the 60 minutes are up, then the show is over,” Managing Director for BPP Jessica Reed said. Every year, the fundraiser follows the same format — 30 shows in 60 minutes — but the theme of
the plays changes. This year, all of the plays are about different types of drinks. “We thought it would be fun to have a show completely inspired by our local awesome bars, breweries and wineries,” Reed said. Shakalis said the plays are very risqué in nature and, to prepare, one of the directors told actors to emulate Jack Black when they perform the plays. “It’s real raucous, raunchy and down and dirty,” Shakalis said. Shakalis said she feels it was much easier to memorize each individual play as opposed to a longer main stage play because they don’t have to maintain the same level of continuity as traditional plays have to. “So you got more of a feeling of accomplishment and achievement if you learned section by section whereas when you do a regular play, you can learn a few scenes but you still don’t have that feeling of learning a big chunk of it,” Shakalis said. David Sheehan, associate artistic director of BPP, said in an email that rehearsals are a lot of fun, and they are still making last-minute changes to each of the plays at this point. “Rehearsal is a lot like a playground jungle gym, and we’ve got a group of actors who love to play, make big, bold choices, and they go crazy,” Sheehan said. Shakalis said she feels they will be able to perform all 30 plays once the event starts because they are taking a lot of time in rehearsal
this week to time themselves running all of the individual plays consecutively. “You have to change the costumes, sets and props,” Shakalis said. “There’s a lot going on, so it’s important that we keep running it and running it so that we don’t feel scared when the time comes.” In terms of cast rituals before the show, Shakalis said they do not do anything formal together, but they pump themselves up individually. “We just all kind of stand in the wings waiting to go on and a lot of us jump up and down literally to get the blood flowing,” Shakalis said. Shakalis said she is excited but will still feel some nervous energy right before they go out to perform. “I think a good actor has to be nervous,” Shakalis said. “If you’re not nervous then it’s not good. You need that nervous energy a little bit. We haven’t had an audience yet, so that will be new, exciting, a little scary, and I think we’ll all be really excited.” Apart from the format of the fundraiser being different than a traditional main stage production, Shakalis said she is looking forward to playing a different kind of role than the traditional ones she has played in the past. “I’ve always played the ingénue, like Maria in ‘The Sound of Music’ and the sweet young thing or the sophisticated Stephen Sondheim singer,” Shakalis said. “For me, this is so much fun because it’s such an admiration and

new casting situation. I never really got to be goofy and zany, and that’s what this is.” In addition to all of the plays being about drinks, there will also be a tasting of the different local drinks at 7 p.m. in the lobby before the show. “Instead of showing up 15 minutes before the show and just walking into the theater, there’ll be something going on in the lobby,” Reed said. “Hopefully it will be pretty lively, which will set the tone for the show, which is always high energy.” Shakalis said she looks forward to being a part of such a different experience. “I’m so excited to see how it all comes together because it just started with these eight people,” Shakalis said. “I didn’t know anybody, and when I got the part I had no idea what it was. Everybody put in a lot of work and memorizing, and it’s going to be good.”
AN EMMA DILEMMA
Greek, Roman art expert speaks at IU By Sanya Ali email@example.com | @siali13
Neither frigid temperatures nor technical difficulties could lessen the passionate speech by Mark Abbe, assistant professor at University of Georgia, as he shared with his audience knowledge and theory on art from Greece and Rome. Abbe began his lecture, “Color and Material Presence: Recovering Aesthetics of the Roman Marble Sculpture,” with a quote from Greek tragedy “Helen,” which dramatized the removal of a layer of color from a painting. “These lines, of course, confirm paint and sculpture were common practice,” Abbe said. “Wiping out a coat of paint leaves behind an image neither in tact nor in its full form.” The lecture occurred in conjunction with an IU Art Museum exhibition titled “Colors in Classical Art,” a display that Co-Curator Julie Van Voorhis said she hopes will change existing ideas about the nature of color in white marble sculpture. “A lot of people think of this type of art as being inherently un-colorful, lacking in color,” Van Voorhis said. “As the lecture tonight showed, statues were richly painted and architecture was richly painted. Even the red and black vase tradition that we think of as being conventional often had a lot of added color on it.” Throughout the lecture, Abbe walked attendees through the forms of analysis scholars use to determine which colors were prominent in each type of sculpture. Abbe called upon the pieces displayed on the second floor of the museum as examples, though he also brought up images of Greek

Mark Abbe, assistant professor of ancient art at the University of Georgia, speaks at the School of Fine Arts on Tuesday. His lecture was about “recovering the aesthetics of Roman marble sculpture.”
and Roman statues from around the world to show how vivid some of the lasting color on the pieces could be. “We have red under paint in the hair and mouth and yellow in the flesh areas,” Abbe said as he showed an example on the projector. “When you look at the surface with a microscope you see this, a light polychromy.” Polychromy refers to the use of many colors in decoration, especially in architecture and sculpture. Abbe used the term many times throughout the lecture. He brought up one example in which the color looked well maintained, though the piece itself was not. “It might be an aesthetically ugly thing, but it is a superb example of marble polychromy,” Abbe said. “It doesn’t look that good because the final surface is not preserved.” Abbe said he has not found many forums in the United States for discussion of color in Greek and Roman art and architecture. Some of the previous discourse in the field, Abbe said, incorrectly asserted that Greek and Roman
artisans intentionally relied on a monochromatic color palate to emphasize the form of the sculptural pieces. “We in the West suffer from color angst, or chromophobia,” Abbe said. “Discussions of color like this remain the exception.” Parts of the lecture also explored finds within the IU Art Museum, including a mysterious glass eye from an unidentified statue. “The most interesting part was the discussion of the glass eye,” Van Voorhis said. “I never knew it was an animal eye before. This exploration in animal statuary, to me, was very interesting.” Van Voorhis expressed gratitude to all who helped with the show, especially the students at IU who spent time organizing the exhibit around which the lecture revolved. “I taught a graduate seminar that set the parameters for the exhibit, then there was an undergraduate class that selected objects and wrote the labels for the pieces that were on display,” Van Voorhis said. “That was very exciting, to have so much student involvement in the show.”
Austin rock band to play at the Bishop Wednesday By Adam Smith firstname.lastname@example.org @adbsmithIU
Through weather-related cancellations and last-minute re-locations, Otis the Destroyer has made its way north to Indiana for the first time. The Austin, Texas, rockers have been on the road for about a week and a half, and last night’s show in Evansville marked the first of three stops the band will make in Indiana. Tonight, Otis the Destroyer plays at the Bishop with local opening acts Bikespeed Champion and Wet Heave. Singer and guitarist Taylor Wilkins said everyone coming to the show should expect a “rowdy, fast-paced rock show.” When the tour is fin-
ished, Wilkins said he hopes to get a few days in the studio before the band heads out again to play at the South by Southwest festival. Since October, the band has worked on its debut album, occasionally taking time to get away for a tour. Wilkins said playing shows is an important part of the band’s writing process. Although most of the songs are born jamming in their practice space, he said, they like to test them out in shows and see the crowd’s reaction. He said some songs sound awesome when it’s just the band playing alone, but playing them live for a crowd just doesn’t work. “We just try to find what works through and through from an audience perspective, from a band

The band plans to release its untitled debut album either at the end of 2015 or the beginning of 2016. With about 50 percent of the album recorded, Wilkins said the band is deliberately taking its time with making the album to ensure everything is exactly right. “We’ve been in a couple of bands before, and we put out albums pretty fast, once or twice a year even, but it just seemed like it was getting lost in the mix,” he said.

The Eiffel Tower is one of Paris’ most popular tourist attractions.
Learning to be a tourist in Paris During my time abroad, I’ve managed to remain an off-the-grid tourist. I eat at local restaurants and bars and take trips to the places in Spain that Spaniards like to visit. That approach took a backseat this weekend as I traveled to Paris. For the first time since landing in Madrid, I couldn’t speak the language of the country and had no cultural context whatsoever. In the practical sense, my main purpose as an IU student abroad is to learn the language and culture, which means going out and being in it, not just looking at it through a window. Though I know I will never be able to shake my (very obvious) Americanness, I’ve managed not to let that characteristic define me. And given that I have a whole six months in Madrid, I’d rather learn how to live like a Spaniard than make the Spaniards live like me. Going out of the country, on the other hand, is a very different experience. We had only two days to see the city, which meant throwing out our subtlety and going full-bore “tourist mode.” We had an itinerary, I tell you. For the first time since landing in Europe, I felt like an American abroad, and it was surprisingly freeing. It gave me a perspective of where I was in the world

and what my American identity means in a global context. We were able to make comparisons between French, American and Spanish culture, food and lifestyle. I was surprised at how similar the French and Spanish were. There’s the same emphasis on food. In the famous macaroon store Ladurée, I had the same feeling I felt when making paella — that I was not only enjoying food but experiencing a cultural phenomenon. But when it comes to customer service, America has Europe beat. Waiters do not work on tips but are paid hourly, which means they really don’t care if you have enough water or if your meal tastes fine. Sadly, I have discovered I am someone who

likes being babied in a restaurant. In a country where you study in order to learn the language, a lot of times it feels like your task is to trick the locals into thinking you are one of them. The minute I let my American accent slip and someone guesses who I am, I’ve lost the game. Going to France as a tourist allowed me to finally account for all of these cultural similarities and differences honestly and without pretense. So I guess I can admit it: I like being a tourist. Especially if I learn something along the way. email@example.com

Another road test as IU plays Northwestern By Alden Woods firstname.lastname@example.org | @acw9293
Every time IU makes the trip to Northwestern’s Welsh-Ryan Arena, it brings along a little bit of home. A four-hour drive from Bloomington, Chicago is home to the largest IU alumni base outside of the state of Indiana. Throw in Northwestern’s usually low attendance figures and quiet crowd, and the Wildcats’ gym in the Chicago suburbs is suddenly as red as it is purple. “One of the best IU alums,” junior guard Yogi Ferrell said of Chicago. “I always feel like we get a lot of good fans going out there, so that’ll definitely help us out.” Evanston, Ill., is the next closest thing to home IU has in the Big Ten. That could be a boost for a Hoosier squad that hasn’t found much success outside of Assembly Hall this season. But IU Coach Tom Crean isn’t thinking that way. “Northwestern is very hard to play,” Crean said.
“They’re extremely hard to play in their building.” IU has played 11 games away from Bloomington, winning just four. In true road games, the Hoosiers are 3-5, but those three wins came at Nebraska, Illinois and Rutgers — the Big Ten’s No. 8, No. 11 and No. 14 teams, respectively. It will finish that road slate against Northwestern, which sits in 12th place in the conference. At this point in the season, IU (19-9, 9-6) is all but assured a spot in the NCAA Tournament, but a win in Evanston could seal it. “It would be our fourth road win game and 10th win in the conference,” Ferrell said. “To get this win — it would be win No. 20 — would be great for our team. It would be a great push for us heading into the last part of the season.” The Wildcats are all but out of the running for a program-first NCAA Tournament berth but have put together three consecutive Big Ten wins.
It’s that surging Northwestern team, not the one that lost 10 consecutive games to open 2015, that IU’s preparing for. Crean said the Wildcats were recipients of a few results that didn’t reflect their performance early in the season. “We’re locked in for Northwestern,” Crean said. “They’ve been in so many games that came down to one or two possessions.” If Wednesday’s game feels like a homecoming for the Hoosiers, it’s a literal one for Nick Zeisloft. The junior guard grew up in the Chicago suburb of La Grange, Ill., less than an hour’s drive from Evanston. Zeisloft said he expects to see family and friends in the stands but that his focus will remain on the court. “It’ll be familiar for me,” he said. “I’ve played there before, so that’ll be a good thing. “But the main thing on my focus level right now is getting (win) No. 20 for us and getting a last road win for the regular season.”
If there’s one team in the Big Ten nobody wants to face right now, it’s Northwestern. Well, no. Nobody wants to face Wisconsin. But the Wildcats are near the top of the list. Don’t be fooled by Northwestern’s 4-10 conference record — it’s a decent team that is certainly capable of beating IU. The Wildcats have won three consecutive games for the first time since December.

Big Ten Championships open today in Iowa City By Frank Bonner firstname.lastname@example.org @Frank_Bonner2
The women’s swimming and diving team finished in second place at the Big Ten Championships on Saturday. Now, the men’s team will start its Big Ten Championships on Wednesday in Iowa City, Iowa. No. 15 IU finished second in the Championships last season and enters this year’s Championships the second highest nationally ranked team in the Big Ten behind No. 6 Michigan. The Wolverines won the Championships last season, and IU freshman Nick Wonder said they are the favorites again this season. “We’re really trying to beat Ohio State and be right there in the top two,” Wonder said. “We don’t know if we’ll be able to beat Michigan this year, but we’re trying to give Michigan all we’ve got to
make sure it’s a battle for first place.” Indiana has not placed out of the top five in the Big Ten Championships in the last 12 years of competition and have been second two years in a row. There are some individual races the Hoosiers feel strong about coming into this competition. Sophomore Anze Tavcar holds the fastest 100 freestyle time in the Big Ten and the sixth-fastest in the 50 freestyle. He also holds the third-fastest 800 freestyle relay along with his teammates, sophomores Max Irwin and Jackson Miller and freshman Blake Pieroni. Pieroni also holds the second-fastest conference time in the 200 freestyle. There are a total of 17 events in which the Hoosiers hold one of the 10 fastest conference times. “Middle distance is our strength,” Wonder said. “We’re really trying to get our relays in the top 10 this year. Last year we didn’t have the
best relays, but hopefully we’re strong and try to win a couple of them this year.” The women’s team just finished its Big Ten Conference Championships, where they placed second and broke two Big Ten Conference records in the process. Freshman Levi Brock said watching the women’s team place second and have a legitimate shot for first place helps motivate the men as they go into their conference championships. “Our women’s team swam really well,” Brock said. “Hopefully we can use the energy they have coming off of that meet to swim faster ourselves. We swim co-ed at practice so we’re all one team. It’s all competitive as a team.” There are a total of six Big Ten schools ranked in the top 23, so it is anticipated there will be a high level of competition at the Big Ten Championships.

New coach brings diverse experiences to IU ating class of about 70 students. In high school, she was a tri-sport athlete, playing soccer, softball and field hockey. She said soccer was her best sport, but her field hockey coach convinced her to pursue further involvement in field hockey. "(I) ended up having an amazing high school field hockey coach who just came in right as I was a freshman, changed our program, really made me excited about the sport,” Janney said. She went on to play field hockey at Wake Forest after turning down a full scholarship offer at LSU to be part of the Demon Deacons’ new soccer program. Janney said her favorite memory of playing field hockey at Wake Forest was the chemistry her team had, and she tries to instill that chemistry in the teams she coaches. IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass said her connection with her athletes is part of why Janney was brought to IU. “She connects with her kids,” Glass said. “The kids at Temple really like her. The people at Temple really liked her.” Glass said he saw all of the success Janney brings to the playing field in her time coaching at Temple. “For the 10 years that she was there, they went to postseason every single year,” he said.

Amanda Janney’s high school soccer career changed the way she looks at field hockey, so much that she sometimes implements soccer techniques while coaching her field hockey players. “I take a lot of my coaching from, kind of, the soccer passing that I learned in high school,” she said. “Field hockey is played similar to soccer, and there’s a lot we can learn from other sports.” After being hired as IU field hockey coach Feb. 9, Janney came to Bloomington last week with nothing in her office but a desk and a basketball signed by Tom Crean. For 10 years, she coached field hockey at Temple University. Now, she’s building a new home for herself at IU. Janney was born in South Korea and adopted by American parents. She grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, near Dallas. “I was pretty fortunate to grow up in Fort Worth because it was an amazing city, and I enjoyed living in Texas,” she said. Janney’s adopted parents made Fort Worth home while working in the Air Force. Her mother was a nurse and her father was a technical writer. Janney attended a small high school with a gradu-

Romeo and Juliet to open at Halls Theatre By Lani Maresh firstname.lastname@example.org
Senior David GordonJohnson was flattered when the director of the upcoming IU Theatre production of “Romeo and Juliet” asked him to select and direct the Elizabethan-style music for the play. In addition to his role as the music director, Gordon-Johnson will play Benevolio alongside his fellow cast members for “Romeo and Juliet,” which opens 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre. “I thought it was a really cool opportunity to do something that I had never done before,” Gordon-Johnson said. “I think it’s some of the coolest choral music that you can do.” Nancy Lipschultz, IU associate professor and director of the show, said she chose to portray the traditional version as opposed to a modern adaptation of the show. “I think that’s been done and done and done,” Lipschultz said. “Modern dress, contemporary dress and things and recently on Broadway with Orlando Bloom, it was all very modern. I just thought it might be nice just to do a real Elizabethan sort of traditional look.” Lipschultz said she always incorporates live music into all of her productions, and she thought Gordon-Johnson would be a good person to ask to help her coordinate the music because of his musi-
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 albums such as Modest Mouse’s “Good News for People Who Love Bad News,” has been working with Otis the Destroyer through the recording process. Wilkins said the band has also been in communication with producer Tim Palmer about
cal background and experience in the Jacobs School of Music. “Having that background helped a lot with this because I had some ideas from what I’d already known and sung before, but of course that’s not going to be enough,” Gordon-Johnson said. “But having a familiarity with the other composers and other types of music helped me find other things to work with.” The music consists of madrigals, motets and anthems from the Elizabethan era. The music sung in Act I is more lively and upbeat to represent the positive tone of Romeo and Juliet falling in love. A madrigal will be sung prior to the play to help set the mood. “This kind of helps us warm up the audience to the world without just waiting for the ball to drop with two households both alike in dignity in fair Verona where we lay our scene,” Gordon-Johnson said. Gordon-Johnson said the music in Act II is intended to heighten the drama that is portrayed in the plot. “There’s a madrigal that Ian Scott and I sing after the Capulets find Juliet’s dead body after she’s drunk the potion before she goes to the tomb,” Gordon-Johnson said. “We come in under Friar Lawrence’s eulogy of Juliet to add something to the scene.” Gordon-Johnson said casts in traditional musicals block out an entire week to work on music, but because this is a play, they did

With only two Saturday rehearsals to learn the majority of the music, Gordon-Johnson said he felt he underestimated the amount of time it would take to teach all of the complex music to the cast. “The hardest thing was probably finding the ways to maintain the integrity of the music but also make it accessible for people of all different levels of comfort and experience,” GordonJohnson said. Lipschultz said the audience can expect an electric, exciting young atmosphere where children clash with their parents and parents clash with their children. Gordon-Johnson said his experience being the music director has given him a whole new level of appreciation for the job that choral conductors and music directors do in terms of learning how to be efficient but kind and work with people who are at different levels. “There were moments where I was just like, ‘I am so far out of my depth, I have no idea what I’m doing and I hope this is gonna work,’ and they did the work,” Gordon-Johnson said. “It made me appreciate what choral and musical directors do, but at the same time it made me appreciate just how integral every single person is.”

mixing some of the album. Working with Sikes has been a great experience for the band, Wilkins said. He said Sikes acts as a sort of moderator, both pushing them farther and holding them back at the right moments. “He’s the kind of person who’s there when you need him and is invisible when
you need to figure stuff out,” Wilkins said. “He’s really attentive for what’s right for the song, what’s right for the profession and what’s right for the part.” Wilkins said a lot of the songs the band has already recorded deal with the topic of growing up and realizing they’re not 21 anymore. He said the album does a lot of
reminiscing about younger days, but its core is a “realistic take on growing up and being a middle-aged guy.” In regards to sound, Wilkins said the band has moved away from the psychedelic rock sound on their EP “Dark Arts” toward faster, heavier rock. He said he thinks the album will have shades of “dark arts” along

with a new sound the band has been working on. Wilkins has a very specific idea in mind about what this new sound is. He said he would like to create a “beautiful but nasty-sounding record” that lies somewhere between the music made by Ty Segall and Radiohead’s 2007 album, “In Rainbows.”
The band is made up of very different musicians with varying musical tastes, Wilkins said, so they’re constantly in search of a sound they can all agree upon. “The diversity comes from our personalities and our personal tastes in music, but what holds us together is pretty much rock n’ roll,” he said.
Questioning and exploring your sexuality I’m a straight guy that has been curious. I’ve been fantasizing about being with another man. I want to do this, but I don’t know who to talk to or where to go. At first I want to keep it on the down low. I really want to see if I’m gay. Help me. If you say you’re a straight guy, that suggests to me that you have some romantic or sexual attraction to women. Is that the case? Or have you just identified as straight as a default position or because people around you assumed you were straight? If you’re into women, then exploring with men might help you find out if you are bisexual, but if you are romantically and sexually into women, it’s unlikely you are gay. But enough about labels, because they only get us so far anyway. You’re curious about being sexual with another man. Okay, there are plenty of ways to explore this. Some men begin by just getting to know other men around them and seeing if they have romantic or sexual attractions to other men. Other times, guys who are curious about their attractions to men might go to a gay bar or explore Manhunt or Grindr. If you want to explore gay spaces like gay bars or cruising spots but don’t feel you can do it in your hometown, why not take a trip to a city you don’t live in where you can be a bit more anonymous? Many people explore in places they don’t live in so they can feel less inhibited. I’m not sure where you live, but cities like Chicago, New York City, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco all have a number of gay bars, though by no means are they the only ones. Wherever you decide to explore, give yourself room to see what it feels like. You might need to go several times, or a lot of times, before you really get a sense of whether you want to
connect with men in this way. Some men who eventually come to identify as gay or bisexual don’t initially feel comfortable in gay spaces or even making out or having sex with other men. When you grow up in a mostly heterosexual world, as most people have, where everyone assumes people are straight and where some people even say negative things about gay or bisexual people, feeling comfortable in gay spaces or situations isn’t always easy. For some people, it takes time to feel comfortable enough to open up. And also, many people of all sexual orientations have to like someone — and I mean, really like someone — before they can feel totally turned on or able to sexually perform with that person. If you’re like that, then you could be in a gay bar and meet a very attractive man, but unless you happen to connect, you might not experience that part of yourself fully. New York Times columnist Charles Blow wrote beautifully about this process both in the Times and in his book, “Fire Shut Up In My Bones.” However you choose to explore, keep in mind that sexuality is fluid; you don’t have to decide on a label — straight, gay or bi — if you don’t feel that way right now.
