Hoosiers travel to No. 9 MSU By Jake Thomer @jakethethomer


Jessie Colby runs towards the Alpha Phi banner to meet her new sisters after receiving a bid at the IU Tennis Center on Tuesday. The women received their bids together and left with their chapters on buses. By Peter Talbot @petejtalbot

Ari Scott held a white envelope with her name on it in her shaking hands. Inside was an invitation to either the Epsilon Phi chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha or the Beta Delta chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta. Starting over winter break, Scott had been moving around IU as a part of Panhellenic Association recruitment, trying to find a sorority that would give her the sense of sisterhood she was looking for. Scott considered dropping after the first day of recruitment. The freezing cold weather had forced her to wear five pairs of socks and two pairs of pants just to keep warm, and the schedule was grueling. Tuesday night, her decision to keep

going despite the long and cold days was validated. Tuesday night, the IU Panhellenic Association held Bid Night at the IU Tennis Center. On Bid Night, potential new members receive an invitation to one of their top two preferred sorority chapters. At 7:15 p.m., outside the tennis center, around 50 potential new members shivered in the cold, waiting for 7:30 p.m. to arrive. Some huddled, others jumped in place to stay warm. “My toes are going to fall off,” one woman yelled at the closed doors of the tennis center. “I’m going to send them my toe when it falls off.” When the doors finally opened, a mass of women cheered and bustled into the building. Upbeat pop music played loudly while a

few women danced. “Smells like sorority,” one woman said as she walked in the door. Groups of women were scattered across the tennis courts. Near the back of the courts, Scott stood with the four other members of her Rho Gamma group. All potential new members are assigned a Rho Gamma who helps potential new members through the recruitment process. A Rho Gamma is a member of a sorority who temporarily disaffiliates from their chapter to help during recruitment. Disaffiliating helps to discourage bias while helping the potential new members find a chapter that is a good fit. One chapter at a time, each Rho Gamma received the bids for the potential new members they were in charge of and revealed their

chapter from the secondfloor balcony where organizers spoke. Scott wore white converse sneakers, faded skinny jeans and a dull green Columbia jacket. A maroon scarf hung around her neck and a canvas bag was slung around her shoulders. A multicolored beanie slouched on her head. Scrunched up around her ankles were black socks with red double-decker London buses. In high school, Scott was the captain of her dance team. She bought the socks when she performed in London during the 2016 New Year’s Day Parade. Scott said she wanted to join a sorority to make the campus smaller. “I missed that close-knit group of girls,” Scott said. Scott said a sorority is

like a team. She said members spend a lot of time together and work on philanthropy events. “You feel more like a family than just a friend group,” Scott said. Scott’s top pick was Alpha Sigma Alpha, an unhoused sorority at IU. Alpha Sigma Alpha became Scott’s first choice sorority after preference day, where potential new members can visit two of their chapters from the previous round. It was the conversation that night that hooked her. Scott talked with a member of the sorority about everything from their majors to why she decided to rush . “It felt like a real conversation with a friend,” Scott said. The sisterhood felt real to Scott at Alpha Sigma Alpha. SEE BID NIGHT, PAGE 6

Local film “Hoosier” reimagines queer cinema By Chris Forester @_ChrisForrester

When she found a note tucked under the windshield wiper of her car, a tan 90s Buick she calls Carl, IU student Meghan Halaburda thought it was a parking ticket. But when she picked it up, she said she realized the note was from two filmmakers asking to use her car in their film. Halaburda said she then got in touch with the filmmakers, and after verifying that they were indeed local filmmakers and not professional car thieves, she agreed for her car to be used in the film. “I’m so excited — my car is more successful than I am at this point in my life,” Halaburda said. “Hopefully this is just his big break, and he continues getting opportunities like this.” She added that the filmmakers agreed to credit her car as “Carl” in the film’s credits. The film, an upcoming LGBT-themed film entitled “Hoosier,” has been in development for several years and will feature scenes shot in Bloomington.

“Hoosier” is still months away from completion, but writer and director Aaron Cook said he hopes to have the project finished by the end of June. Jason Fruits, a producer and unit production manager of the film, said another producer happened to find the car while it was parked near the Airbnb that the film’s crew had been using as a home base while they were shooting in Bloomington. Fruits said the filmmakers previously had a car lined up to use — the same model as Halaburda’s — but that it unexpectedly broke down shortly before it was needed. This car trouble prompted them to reach out to Halaburda, which landed Carl the role in the film. Fruits, a masters student at IU studying media, got involved with “Hoosier” through IU professor Craig Erpelding. He said that he was first sold on the film by a specific line of dialogue — “Hoosiers never die” — from an early draft of the screenplay, which he said really resonated with him. He also described the film’s production as incredible. Fruits said he was es-

Youth in the starting lineup, experience off the bench A host of talented freshmen and sophomores provide the bulk of Michigan State’s production, while juniors and seniors provide a veteran presence in backup roles. The Spartans’ usual starting five includes four sophomores – Miles Bridges, Nick Ward, Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford – and freshman big man Jaren Jackson Jr. All five were top-100 recruits, and all five average more than 11.5 points per game. Among the reserves, Michigan State has experience to lean on in junior Matt McQuaid (6.5 points per game) and seniors Gavin Schilling and Tum Tum Nairn.

Cook explained these ideas as part of an attempt to steer clear of the tropes of mainstream LGBT cinema, which he said he feels favors coming-out narratives for its characters far too frequently. Cook said that in his film he wanted to explore something more substantive than coming out, something SEE HOOSIERS, PAGE 6



accept an identity, to move into an identity that people don’t accept,” Fruits said. “To put that onscreen is really moving.” He also said the film focused more on its characters’ immersion into the LGBT community than their first interactions with it. It’s not a film of firsts or of coming out so much as one of progression and growth for its characters, he said.

The Spartans have dominated the Hoosiers in recent years The Hoosiers haven’t won in East Lansing, Michigan, since 2013, but last January, IU snapped a five-game losing streak against Michigan State with an 82-75 win at home. Guard Robert Johnson, then a junior, scored 17 points in the victory. Before that win, IU had lost its previous five matchups against Michigan State by more than 12 points per game. The Spartans, led by Tom Izzo, have been a dominant force more often than not in recent years. They have reached two Elite Eights in the past four seasons, and they have the talent to make another deep tournament run in 2018.

Michigan State plays stifling defense No one will score easily on the Spartans; that much is for certain. Michigan State leads the country in blocks thanks to Jackson’s 3.2 rejections per game. In addition, the Spartans have held opponents to just 35 percent shooting this season, the best mark in Division I. With long and versatile defenders like Jackson, Ward and Bridges, the Spartans present matchup problems all over the floor. In the absence of sophomore forward

pecially pleased with the camaraderie between members of the production crew. Many members of the film’s production team were IU students. “It was one of the most professional shoots, and it really set the bar for my own work at IU,” Fruits said. Fruits also said the film was a sort of post-comingout narrative. “It’s about what it’s like to

IU men’s basketball is in the midst of a three-game winning streak and on a roll with the Big Ten schedule now one-third complete. At 4-2, the Hoosiers find themselves in the top half of the conference standings, but tough opposition lies ahead. Four of IU’s next six games are against teams with equal or better Big Ten records. First up in IU’s difficult stretch is a road game on Friday night at 7 p.m. against the No. 9 Michigan State Spartans, who are battletested and have a 16-3 overall record. With IU still clinging to slim hopes of an NCAA Tournament bid, this road battle against a top-10 team provides the Hoosiers with a chance to pick up their biggest win of the season thus far. Here are five things to know about the Spartans. & @idsnews

Remembering Bruce Cole Professor emeritus remembered for devotion to humanities By Caroline Anders @clineands

Bruce Cole, distinguished professor emeritus and former IU trustee, died Jan. 8. He was 79. His tenure at IU began in 1973 and ended nearly three decades later. He was a beloved member of the IU community known for his work in Renaissance art and for his dedication to the humanities. Cole went to college at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and wrote his dissertation on fourteenthcentury painter Agnolo Gaddi. He chaired the National Endowment for the Humanities, one of the largest American supporters of the humanities, for eight years. Cole was confirmed into the position on Sept. 14, 2001, three days after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. According to the NEH website, at the time of the swearing-in, Cole gave an address on the importance of the humanities in the wake of the attacks. “Defending our homeland requires not only successful military campaigns; it also depends on citizens understanding their history, their institutions and their ideals,” he said. “The humanities show us what it means to be an American, and why America's ideals are worth fighting for.” Cole was honored across “The humanities the world in 2008, acshow us what it cepting the means to be an P re s i d e nt i a l American, and Citizens Medal from former why America’s president ideals are worth George W. fighting for.” Bush and being decorated Bruce Cole, distinguished professor emeritus and Knight of the former IU trustee Grand Cross.

"All of us at Indiana University are deeply saddened by the passing of Bruce Cole, one of our University's most renowned scholars and public servants, who achieved great distinction both within his field of art history and in the broader arts community,” McRobbie said in a statement on Jan. 9. Cole was remembered as gentle, cultured and soft-spoken by colleague Leslie Lenkowsky, IU professor emeritus in public affairs and philanthropy.

Republicans focus on beating Donnelly By Laurel Demkovich @LaurelDemkovich

INDIANAPOLIS — Republican Senate candidates have one focus for the upcoming 2018 election: beating Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana. Despite differences on policy, all six Republican candidates present at an Indiana Republican Congress of Counties event Saturday mentioned the need to beat Donnelly in November. The event at the Crowne Plaza Downtown Indianapolis, organized by the Indiana Republican Party, brought together six Republican candidates for the United States Senate in a two-day event culminating in a straw poll. Rep. Luke Messer, R-6th District, beat longtime rival Rep. Todd Rokita, R-4th District, by 65 votes, with Messer receiving 147 and Rokita receiving 82. “The question before us really is do we, do you want to beat Joe Donnelly?” Rokita said in his opening remarks. The straw poll was open to any Republican Hoosiers who bought a ticket. Attendees voted for who they would most likely support in the May 8 primary. A straw poll does not decide anything, but it can in theory give candidates an idea of where they currently stand. Out of 326 votes, Mike

would be the best candidate to move forward to the 2018 November election, and most focused on why they thought they could beat Donnelly. Rokita and Messer both criticized Donnelly’s voting pattern. Messer mentioned similarities between Donnelly's voting record and that of other Democrats. “Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren are wrong way more than 15 percent of the time,” Messer said. Messer added Indiana residents need someone who votes the way they do. “We need a U.S. senator who votes like a Hoosier in Washington,” Messer said. Rokita agreed. In his remarks, he said Donnelly does not vote in the interest of Indiana residents when it matters, such as the final Affordable Care Act vote. "He is always with us when it doesn't matter," Rokita said. Hurt, who came in fourth place, said one of the main

reasons why he entered the race was the way Donnelly voted, specifically his support for the Iran Nuclear Agreement. “Joe Donnelly can’t walk away from that,” Hurt said. “He needs to be held accountable.” Rokita also focused on the qualities that would make him the best fit to beat Donnelly. Halfway through his remarks, Rokita put on a red Make America Great Again hat. The Republican party needs a pro-Trump candidate in order to win in November, Rokita said. He added that being from Northwest Indiana, where many residents of Lake County vote Democrat, he knows how to beat Democrats. He also said in order to win, it’s important to live in Indiana, an apparent subtle dig at Messer, whose family moved to Virginia when he was elected to serve in Congress. Living in the state he represents makes him a better leader and a better fighter,

Rokita said. Messer declined to respond to criticism from Rokita, a fellow graduate of Wabash College.

IU students give dance classes to youth in Panama


Junior Alyxandria Sundheimer caught a view of Panama City while hiking during her dance service trip. She went on the trip with IU's chapter of Movement Exchange. By Emily Isaacman @emilyisaacman

Six IU students used dance to bridge cultural differences by teaching dance classes to underprivileged Panamanian youth over winter break. Though circumstances such as providing their own water, foregoing hot showers and eating a diet of rice and beans initially shocked the IU students, sophomore Nathalie Bone said she called United Airlines on the last day of the trip to try to extend her stay. “I did not want to go home at all,” Bone said. The weeklong program, organized through the international nonprofit organization Movement Exchange, enabled students from IU, Butler University, University of Cincinnati and Cornell University to teach dance as a means of service. Junior Alyxandria Sundheimer said she was most affected by the joy for life her students exhibited despite their lack of material privileges. “They can hardly afford housing and proper clothing, further more dance classes,” said senior Angie Pan, president of Movement Exchange at IU. Sundheimer said a 3-year old boy named Angel in her class already showed symptoms of AIDS, but nevertheless attended every day of the program. “You could tell this little boy was excited to be in class, but he was just so exhausted that he couldn’t move,” Sundheimer said. Movement Exchange has bases in Panama, Brazil and the United States. The IU chapter, one of at least 20 in the U.S., leads free weekly dance classes at Girls Inc. of Monroe County, Boys and Girls Clubs of Bloomington and Middle Way House. Sundheimer said she structured her classes in Panama similarly to the classes she teaches each week at the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington. While the IU students were unable to verbally communicate with their Spanish-speaking pupils, Bone said they formed physical connections through movement. “It’s instinctual,” Bone said. “As long as you’re keeping them engaged, they’re willing to go along with you.”

Bone said her students demonstrated strong enthusiasm during class, asking to practice choreography over and over again, instead of taking breaks or playing games. The university students, whom Movement Exchange entitles Dance Diplomats, taught for three hours each morning before taking their own dance classes from locals in the afternoons. They learned passo passo, folklore, bachata, contemporary, breakdancing and Panamanian hip-hop, all of which were foreign to them. Nightly discussions on topics like U.S.-Panama history and the nature of diplomacy aimed to enrich the university students’ explorations of Panamanian culture. “It’s definitely meant to help both of us,” Bone said of the experience. Movement Exchange offers seven international dance exchanges to Panama and Brazil throughout the year. However, locally-staffed Movement Exchange programs in these areas continue their work year round, according to

“We can still make these connections even though we’re different.” Angie Pan, President of Movement Exchange at IU

Movement Exchange’s website. On the last day of the program, all participants in the exchange performed a showcase for the children’s families. The Panamanians danced routines the university students had taught them. The Americans performed passo passo, a traditional Panamanian social dance. “I don’t know what will happen to these kids,” Sundheimer said. “Maybe one of them will grow up and become a dancer now.” Pan, who went on the trip in 2015 and 2016, said the experience has changed her perspective and increased her love for dance since returning to Bloomington. “We can still dance together, we can still talk to each other,” Pan said. “We can still make these connections even though we’re different."

“Listen — our campaign’s focused on my record, how we unite the Indiana Republican party and beat Joe Donnelly," Messer said in an interview. "Right now I’m not responding to other people’s attacks.” While he emphasized the importance of a candidate being able to beat Donnelly, Messer also said there is a second thing a candidate needs to be able to do. “We need to come together as a party in order to win,” Messer said. Jesse Naranjo contributed reporting.

MLK Jr. honored at Unity Summit Hoosiers attend rally in support of hate crime bills

By Emily Isaacman @emilyisaacman

Memorial March About 30 marchers braved steadily falling snow in memoriam of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday. Organized by the Gamma Eta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and the IU Student Association, it extended the Unity Summit at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. “For me, it's just living up to what Coretta Scott wanted,” said senior D'Angelo King, IUSA chief of communications and marketing. “She tried so hard to make this a national holiday, to make it a day on, not a day off, to give back to the community, to serve, to put in that effort.” Senior Calvin Sanders, president of Alpha Phi Alpha, said an annual march in his hometown of Hammond, Indiana, inspired him to recreate the tradition on campus. While he received several requests to make the march longer, Sanders upheld his decision to march from Woodburn Hall to the NealMarshall Black Culture Center due to the snow. Before the march, Sanders asked the snow plow drivers in the area to clear a path for marchers. Freshman Liwam Gebreslassie said the march was her first time going out of her way to do something to honor Martin Luther King Jr. “Especially on this University campus, I feel like the black community doesn't stand out as much,” Gebreslassie said. “So this is kind of our way of doing something for us.” Many marchers came from the 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Leadership Breakfast and planned on attending the Unity Summit after the march. Unity Summit After gathering for food and refreshments in Woodburn Hall, the marchers walked to the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center to join

other students and faculty for the annual Unity Summit. Monica Johnson, director of the center, emphasized in her opening remarks that MLK Day is a day on, not a day off. After grabbing a boxed lunch, attendees sat down at a round table to participate in a group activity Johnson created to highlight privilege and oppression. “I think that it's something that needs to happen,” Tislam Swift, a graduate assistant at the center said. “It's important to show people the way to recognize their privileges, recognize their differences.” A faculty member, staff member or graduate student led group discussions surrounding the creation of a cross-cultural trail mix. Bowls of Chex Mix, marshmallows, pretzels, Goldfish Crackers, gummy bears, M&M’s and Craisins signified various elements of diversity. Participants were instructed to draw from specific bowls depending on their answers to questions regarding experience with race, gender, family structure, sexual orientation, religion, disability

and education. After filling their bags, participants were encouraged to reflect on which areas of diversity and inclusion they were lacking. “I thought it was really eye-opening to see what each piece represented,” freshman Faith Girton said. Even before Johnson gathered the crowd to explain and discuss the significance of the trail-mix items, it became clear the bland-colored chex mix represented privilege, while the colorful ingredients symbolized experiences of oppression. “We all have a bag,” Johnson said in her closing remarks. “You can determine how much extras you put in there.” The crowd murmured and snapped in approval as participants shared ideas to break down stereotypes. “Diversify your intake of information,” Sanders said. “Look at how you consume information and how you see other people.” Sophomore Joselin Lucas Rojas said the activity inspired her to visit more culture centers on campus so

she can connect with people of different backgrounds. “I just hang out with people of my color,” Rojas said. “But I always want to break that barrier.” In his closing remarks, Black Graduate Student Association President Zachary Price advised the audience to reflect on fear, evaluate

purpose, focus on intentions, embrace the uncomfortable and practice gratitude. “There's somebody who wishes they could be here to share in this moment with you right now,” Price said. “And we owe it to them to empower one another, the ones that aren't here, the ones that are without the power we have.”

INDIANAPOLIS — Supporters of two proposed hate crime laws gathered in the Statehouse Tuesday afternoon to spread a message: enough is enough. The Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate organized a Hate Crime Law Statehouse Rally in hopes of gaining attention and support of Senate Bills 418 and 271. About 100 residents and members of the CIAAH and partnering organizations gathered to hear speakers discuss why Indiana lawmakers should pass a hate crime law. Indiana remains one of five states that currently does not have any law targeting hate crimes, or bias crimes. “We are fed up,” said Trevor Baldwin, a member of the Indiana Association of the Deaf. “The time is now to move forward and progress.” Baldwin, who is deaf, gave his speech in American Sign Language, teaching the crowd to clap like deaf people do, by shaking their hands in the air. Baldwin said many deaf people are unlikely to report a hate crime against them. Oftentimes, he added, they lack the ability to let people know of the abuse. “We believe that Indiana can do better,” he said. Baldwin was one of 16 speakers who addressed the crowd on the importance of passing a hate crime law . Senate Bill 271 focuses on bias crimes. If passed, it would require law enforcement officers to receive training to identify bias crimes and establishes a sentencing procedure for people who commit them. Senate Bill 418 is another bill that focuses on bias crimes. The bill would make crimes based on characteristics of an individual aggravat-

ing circumstances. It would also require local police to report bias crimes to the FBI. David Sklar, Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council government affairs director, said these bills will only be passed if everyone talks to their legislators. “It’s time for the community to come together,” Sklar said. Dr. Anita Joshi, a member of the greater Indiana Hindu community, spoke about Hoosier values. She said Hoosiers have great heart, great power and great ability. She urged Indiana residents and lawmakers to be on the right side of history. “Hate is not a Hoosier value,” she said. “Hoosiers value love.” Kylie Carrithers, 33, attended the rally because she wanted to show her support for the passage of a hate crime law. She said having this type of legislation in Indiana would send an important message to both Indiana residents and people outside Indiana. “It sends a message that Indiana is a place that is welcoming for all communities,” she said. “Not having a bill sends the opposite message.” After all speakers had gone, Sklar encouraged everyone to stand up. Some held up signs that read “No Hate, Just Love.” Others wore colorful hats or pins. Some brought their children or their service animals. This will be the year a hate crime law is passed in Indiana, Sklar said. It has to be. Sklar encouraged the crowd to stand up and cheer loud enough so everyone in the Statehouse could hear. He said the only way this will be passed is if they contact their legislators. Indiana will no longer tolerate hatred or bigotry, he said. “Enough is enough," Sklar said.

IU falls short on the road again By Dylan Wallace | @Dwall_1

It was all too familiar for IU women’s basketball as they traveled to College Park, Maryland, Tuesday night to face-off with the No. 14-ranked Terrapins. The game almost completely recreated the scene six days prior when IU was in Ann Arbor, Michigan, against the then-ranked No. 23 Wolverines. The biggest similarity between the two games is that IU had the lead to begin fourth quarter and couldn’t close it out in the final minutes, losing both games by five points or less. This one was 74-70. IU started out the game down with an early turnover, which IU Coach Teri Moren was having none of as she called a timeout when her team was down 4-0. Out of the timeout, se-

nior guard Tyra Buss responded with a layup and a three to even the game at five. Five would be the deficit for the Hoosiers at the end of the first quarter, 1813. After falling behind 2216 to start the second, IU responded with a 7-0 run led by Buss to take its first lead of the game. The Hoosiers got up to a four-point lead in the second, but it all got cancelled out after Maryland’s freshman guard Channise Lewis drained a three at the buzzer to tie the game at 33 into halftime. In the third quarter, it looked as if the No. 14-ranked Terrapins were going to run away with it after they got their largest lead of the game at 48-40. That was until senior forward Amanda Cahill and freshman guard Jaelynn Penn, the two-leading scor-

74-70 ers in IU’s previous game against Ohio State, began lighting the Terrapins up from beyond the arc. The two sparked an 8-0 run featuring a 3-pointer from each and a layup from Cahill to even things up at 48. With 1:12 remaining in the third, Buss and freshman guard Bendu Yeaney joined their teammates in the three-point party as they each hit one to close out the third on a 6-0 run, taking a 56-52 lead into the fourth. The difference between the Michigan and Maryland games was that Cahill fouled out against the Wolverines, but the Hoosiers had Cahill the entire time versus Maryland. She proved effective as she put up 18 points on 7/12 shooting, grabbed nine

rebounds, and dished out three assists in 39 minutes of play. But it didn’t matter down the stretch in this game. No matter how many baskets Cahill hit, the Hoosiers went cold in the last two minutes and 25 seconds, going 0-6 and getting outscored 5-0. Turnover didn’t help the Hoosiers either, as they finished with 16 on the game. What looked to be a promising turnaround after the 72-54 blowout win against Purdue turned into a three-game losing streak, two of which IU had a chance of winning at the end. Those two potential wins were Michigan and Maryland. What could have two more wins in the Big Ten — and two wins against ranked teams — instead has the Hoosiers at 1-6 in the Big Ten and 8-12 overall.

Not often does an entire tennis roster get used in matches that hold important implications for the season. With ten players on his roster, IU Coach Ramiro Azcui said he expects to utilize all his players in the team's first dual match of the season this weekend. Six of the ten players are returning from last season and have gotten a taste of action within the Big Ten. The four newcomers consist of three freshmen and one transfer senior. After competing in four tournaments in the fall and putting on an impressive performance at the IU Winter Invitational last weekend, Azcui has trust in his players to be productive as the team begins dual match play. As part of the Crimson invite, the ten players will see Western Michigan and Butler as its first dual match competition of the year. Aside from his ten players, Azcui will see a familiar face on the Broncos’ squad. Azcui’s daughter, Denise, is a junior on Western Michigan’s tennis team. This will be Azcui’s third time coaching against his daughter. Azcui’s first dual tennis match as head coach of the IU program featured a match-up against his daughter on Jan. 21, 2017, which the Hoosiers won 7-0. Western Michigan was also in Bloomington this past fall for the Hoosier Classic. “It’s always fun when you talk about it, but it’s tough for both of us when it actually happens,” Azcui said. “It’s an emotional time.” Western Michigan will

come to Bloomington this weekend after coming off its first win of the season Saturday against Oakland, 5-2. The last time IU faced Western Michigan was in September, when the Hoosiers went 2-2 against the Broncos in singles matches and 2-0 in doubles matches. IU junior Madison Appel defeated junior Melina Lyubomirova in two sets, 6-2, 6-3, and junior Natalie Whalen took down senior Barbare Eristavi in two sets, 7-5, 6-4. In doubles play, the duo of senior Xiwei Cai and sophomore Caitlin Bernard beat Western Michigan 8-6, and the other duo of sophomores Emma Love and Pauline Jahren won 6-4.

“It’s always fun when you talk about it, but it’s tough for both of us when it actually happens.” Ramiro Azcui, women’s tennis coach

Unlike Western Michigan, Butler comes to Bloomington looking to bounce back from a 7-0 loss to Cincinnati to put them at 0-2 on the young season. Last January, the Hoosiers dominated the Bulldogs 7-0. The Hoosiers look to mirror that start with a strong performance up and down the lineup this weekend. First serve against Western Michigan will be at 10 a.m. After the match ends, IU will have a few hours to recover before taking on Butler at 5:30 p.m. Both matches will take place inside the IU Tennis Center.

Swimming and diving prepared for Purdue

Water polo gets ranked at 13 From IDS reports

For the second time this season, IU swimming and diving will take the pool with Purdue and will look to add on to a strong performance from November. The in-state rivals are set to duel on Saturday at the Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center. The ranked matchup will feature the No. 10 lady Hoosiers against the No. 23 Boilermakers, while the No. 4 men’s team will face an unranked Purdue squad. West Lafayette was the site of the first match-up, the annual Purdue Invita-

tional, which also featured eight other teams. The Hoosier women dominated the competition, as they won by more than 200 total points. While the women performed well, the men struggled, coming in second place behind Florida by just under 200 points. IU Coach Ray Looze wants to see some improvements from last time they saw the Boilermakers. “I expect to see Purdue at its best,” Looze said. “We need to go deeper into the lineup of kids scoring. We’re really going to push hard this week.” According to Looze,

depth has been the main concern for the Hoosier squad since the start of the season. The depth of the team has given IU troubles all season long and has forced IU into tough losses against Texas, Tennessee, Notre Dame and Michigan. That depth for the women will be challenged this weekend against No. 23 Purdue, who has been falling in the rankings since Oct. 25, when they debuted at No. 16. The process in preparing for Purdue has started during practice. Looze believes that practice translates into the meets, especially during this time of the year.

“We need to make sure people aren’t disappearing in practice,” Looze said. “Because if you’re doing it in practice, then its gonna happen in a meet.” The top ranked Hoosiers are entering a crucial time of the year, as this semester includes the Big Ten Championships, NCAA Championships and Speedo Sectionals. Being the last home meet of the season, IU will honor their seniors for their annual Senior Day at the Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center. One of the seniors that will be honored is Blake Pieroni, the decorated

world champion from Valparaiso, Indiana. Pieroni has earned a gold medal from the Rio Olympics and the FINA World Championships in the 4x100m freestyle relay, where he also received a bronze medal in the 4x200 freestyle relay. While all of those medals are promising, Pieroni has momentum right now, coming off three individual wins at the Michigan meet last weekend. Fans who want to tune into the dual meet can watch online at Big Ten Network Plus, as they will live stream coverage starting at 10:30 a.m. ET from Bloomington.

After a strong 2017 campaign that saw the Indiana Water Polo team finish with a 21-10 record and an appearance in the quarterfinals of the Collegiate Water Polo Association Championship, the Hoosiers will begin the new season ranked at No. 13 in the preseason poll released by the CWPA. The Hoosiers hope to improve upon last season’s solid performance with help from their groups of returnees, headlined by senior goalkeeper Jessica Gaudreault and senior defender Kelly Matthews. Matthews led the team with 61 goals last year. Another bright spot in last year’s season was from sophomore attacker Mollie Williams. Williams will be one of the featured attackers for this team after her breakout freshman season that saw her nab 42 goals and 27 assists. IU’s schedule is no slouch, as the Hoosiers will take on their fair share of ranked teams this season against No. 5 Arizona State, No. 8 Michigan and No. 17 Harvard. Indiana’s 2018 season will start on Saturday, as the Hoosiers will travel to Santa Barbara, California to participate in the UC Santa Barbara Invitational. IU will take on Fresno State at 2:20 p.m. and UC San Diego at 7:30 p.m. Sean Mintert


Wrestling looks to right the ship against struggling Spartans By Daniel Zur | @DanielJZur

On Friday night, the Michigan State Spartans travel to University Gym in Bloomington to face the Hoosiers in a duel of two struggling teams. Both the Hoosiers and Spartans started their seasons off well with six and four nonconference wins, respectively, to help boost their overall record. But as soon as Big Ten play started for both of these squads, the same result followed, as neither team has yet to record a conference win. However, that is not to discount the overall strength of

these two squads. The Big Ten this year is as strong as usual, with 11 of their 14 teams currently in the top 25. Indiana, Michigan State and Maryland finish up the current Big Ten standings. The Hoosiers have struggled to find any source of success so far in the Big Ten. But when examining their schedule and seeing the likes of No. 1 Penn State, No. 2 Ohio State and No. 8 Michigan, it isn’t hard to see why the Hoosiers have struggled out of the gate. With the added difficulty of these matches, IU’s strongest wrestlers have begun to separate themselves from the

pack. Led by the junior and two time NCAA qualifier, Elijah Oliver, the Hoosiers back him up with their two other qualifiers in junior Jake Danishek and sophomore Devin Skatzka. However, it is the emergence of junior Cole Weaver that has most people talking. Weaver, from Hudson, Michigan, is currently ranked No. 20 in the nation for his 141-pound weight class. He had his highest finish all season when he finished as the runner-up in the Midlands Championship over winter break. But in looking to build off that decision, he struggled

in a 6-4 decision against No. 24 Sal Profaci last match against Michigan. Perhaps another meeting with a Michigan home state team is just what the junior needs to try to get back up to his winning ways. Weaver mentioned the team’s eagerness to earn their first conference win and went into detail on the message IU Coach Goodman has been preaching to the team. “It’s all about high effort, Weaver said. “Go out there and give it your all. Leave it on the mat. Effort, effort, effort.” A win against the Spartans would be a great help to make sure the Hoosiers don’t

see themselves at the bottom of the Big Ten standings come the end of the season. Friday also marks the return of former Hoosier and AllAmerican Roger Chandler as he returns to University Gym. Chandler, in his second year on the job at Michigan State, is looking to build up the program that was handed to him by long-time coach Tim Minkel when he retired in 2015. Hoosier fans may remember Chandler as the IU Male Athlete of the year in 19961997, as well as for his 134-25 record, which helped him set school records for both career

wins (134) and pins (40). When asked about the return of Coach Chandler to the school he wrestled at, Goodman mentioned that even though Chandler is only in his second year as head coach, he is a veteran coach that has been around for a while. “Roger was a great competitor, national finalist and one of the most determined and competitive guys I’ve ever had," Goodman said. “I think his career so far has shown that.” Regardless of the history, both coaches will be looking to gain their teams' first conference victory at 6 p.m.

De’Ron Davis, IU will need all of its remaining big men to step up. Making a few more 3-pointers than usual wouldn’t hurt the Hoosiers, either. Sparty shares the basketball As one of the best teams in college basketball, it’s not a surprise that Michigan State leads the country in multiple statistical categories. Another area the Spartans excel in is distributing the ball. They have the most assists in the NCAA, averaging more than 20 per game. Winston is dropping 6.8 assists per game while nearly doubling his scoring output from last season. Nairn, a starter for most of his first three years before taking a back seat to Winston this season, is also contributing a careerhigh 3.8 assists per game. The Spartans can get careless at times, having


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Scott said she would be happy with either her first or second choice, but she was still nervous. “Not knowing which one is nerve-wracking, but it’s exciting too,” Scott said. Excitement continued to build as the time for potential new members to receive their bids drew nearer. Soon enough, all the Rho Gammas had received the bids for their potential new members and began going around to pass them out. In a tight semi-circle, all five women in her group looked at one another, hands on their envelopes, ready to tear them open. At the command of their Rho Gamma, the women opened their letters as fast as they could. At the top of Scott’s letter was the golden palm tree fronds and phoenix emblazoned on Alpha Sigma Alpha’s insignia. Scott immediately lit up, jumping up and down while the women around her screamed. Soon, the entire tennis center erupted in pandemonium. Women ran across the courts, screaming with joy and jumping into one another’s arms. “I was just blown away that it was actually real and I’m actually at the point where I have a chapter,” Scott said. Once she received her bid, Scott texted her mother, father and boyfriend the good news. She said they were all excited to hear that she got the house she wanted. As the new members began to settle down, they

began to group near their sororities’ banners, which were hung around the walls of the tennis center. White and manila envelopes littered the tennis court where they were left in all the excitement. Alpha Sigma Alpha’s banner had a large crescent moon on it with the words “It’s written in the stars,” under it, surrounded by stars on a black backdrop. Scott said she didn’t personally know anyone in her new sorority but she was excited to get to know them. Leaders from their new chapter began to teach them their sorority chant and started learning their names right away. “It’s hard to think that this is really something that I’m a part of now,” Scott said. “It’s going to be a big part of my life.”

Scott said she wanted to be heavily involved with philanthropy in the sorority and might even join their Little 500 team. As she goes through college, Scott said she hopes to be able to take a leadership role in the sorority as well. From there, each sorority chapter was bused to meet the rest of their chapter one by one. Because Alpha Sigma Alpha is an unhoused sorority, Scott wasn’t certain where they were going. She also wasn’t certain what they would be doing there that night. Scott didn’t mind that Alpha Sigma Alpha was an unhoused chapter. She said she wanted to live in an apartment next year and said she didn’t think being unhoused would make her experience

worse. Alpha Sigma Alpha was the second to last chapter to leave. When it was their turn to board the bus, the new members ran outside excitedly, some yelling as they went. “We just welcomed over 1,000 new members into our community,” Naomi Kellogg, operations director for the IU Panhellenic Association said. “It’s really important because for a lot of women this is a brandnew chapter in their lives and now the hard part starts for the rest of the chapter women to make sure they help welcome everybody and mold them into women that align with our community values.” Alpha Sigma Alpha leaders said they were not allowed to comment.

deeper. “It was important for me to try to pull away from the film just being about the moment of coming out,” he said. “It was important for me to deal with a character who had already come to terms with their sexuality.” Cook said he had been developing the screenplay for three years before beginning production. He added that the inception of the idea for the film came when he first came out as queer. “The one thing that sort of catapulted it off was knowing that I wanted to do something with Indiana, drawing in family history and personal history, and then knowing that I wanted to explore a queer narrative with it,” Cook said. He also touched on the importance of queer authorship in LGBT-themed art, which he said was on his mind throughout his work on the film. Cook also said he wanted his film to explore nontraditional expressions of gender and sexuality. He noted that many mainstream queer films — including recent standouts like “Moonlight” and “Call Me by Your Name” — typically feature straight or straight-passing, traditionally masculine men. In response to this, he said that

turned the ball over more often than the Hoosiers this season, but the skyhigh assist totals make up for any sloppiness. Recent performances could be cause for concern Michigan State entered its game against Ohio State on Jan. 7 with a 3-0 Big Ten record and just one loss on the season. Now, just less than two weeks later, the Spartans find themselves in a bit of a slump. After losing to OSU and narrowly beating Rutgers at home, Michigan State lost a rivalry game against Michigan at home over the weekend. Now Izzo’s team is 4-2 in the Big Ten, just like the Hoosiers, while having been outscored by 22 points in the last three games. Friday’s game kicks off a relatively easy stretch of games for Michigan State, and they’ll be doing everything they can to avoid a second consecutive home loss.

he thought it was important to portray male femininity as valid. “Often when you’re dealing with gay characters in movies, you often get very straight-presenting, masculine, very attractive, typically white actors,” he said. “Putting that on screen is a sort of consequence of this idea, I think, that femininity speaks to weakness.” He added that it was also very important to him to cast queer people in queer roles. “You get these wide release queer films that are often not by a queer filmmaker, or that star straight actors,” Cook said. “Those details are really important.” Cook said his film follows a young man who has recently come out and already accepted his sexuality as he begins to immerse himself within the LGBT community as a whole. The film is not Cook’s first, but he said it’s certainly his longest and what he considers to be his most ambitious. He said that it was important to him to try to translate a new and underrepresented part of the queer experience into film. “What really inspired the film was that, even after coming out to friends and family, there was this whole experience of figuring out how to shed the closet,” Cook said.

The power of

puzzles By Christine Fernando @christinetfern

Andrew Rhoda flipped a polished metal cube over in his hands. A few more minutes of twisting and the cube fell apart into four pieces. The next step was to put it back together. He said that part took a few months. But after putting the puzzle — called “Cast Marble” and made by puzzle manufacturer Hanayama — back together, Rhoda disassembled and reassembled the cast-metal puzzle a few times to understand its mechanism. This was the first mechanical puzzle Rhoda had mastered on his own. “That was my first really big mechanical puzzle epiphany,” Rhoda said. Now Rhoda’s interest in puzzles has turned into a career as curator of puzzles at the Lilly Library at IU. He is the only puzzle curator in the world. Rhoda said the more than 30,000 puzzles included in the library’s collection represents a harmonious combination of math and art. The result of this combination is a beautiful puzzle, both in aesthetics and in the simplicity of its design, he said. But not all puzzles are beautiful in the typical sense of the word.

Andrew Rhoda is the only puzzle curator in the world. “The beauty is not in the object itself,” he said. “It’s in the mechanism of the puzzle.” Rhoda said a good puzzle maker must also find a balance between frustrating difficulty and mindless

simplicity. “When you strike that balance, there’s this intangible quality,” he said. “There’s this amazing feeling of satisfaction when solving it.” Another distinguishing quality of the library’s collection is its international scope, Rhoda said. The collection stretches across five continents and includes pieces from countries such as Japan, China, Australia, Germany and Mongolia. He said cultures around the world play with puzzles, suggesting that humans are naturally drawn to both the frustrations and pleasures of unlocking their mysteries. “I see people struggle with a puzzle and walk away in a huff,” he said. “But they come back and work through it. They just need to solve that mystery.” The collection’s oldest puzzle is a padlock the size of a ring that dates back to Roman times. Rhoda said the padlock represents the original practical uses of puzzles before they became an object of entertainment. Jerry Slocum, the historian and puzzle collector for whom the Slocum Puzzle Collection at IU is named, published a book called "Romano-Celtic Mask Puzzle Padlocks: A Study in their Design, Technology and Security" that focuses on these Roman puzzle padlocks and their histories. He said the collection also included puzzle snuff boxes that kept volatile matchsticks from falling out and producing spontaneous fire balls. Another was an elaborate master lock complete with hasps, moving pieces and levers. These puzzles were used as final exams for locksmiths, Rhoda said. But it was only recently in puzzle history, as late as the 19th century, that they were considered objects of

art and entertainment, he said. “There’s an interesting shift from the practical to the entertaining and beautiful,” he said. “And now you’re seeing another shift back to the practical with puzzles being used in education.” Rhoda said the educational value of puzzles involves their ability to teach problem-solving, geometry and manipulating the scientific method. “Puzzles are a way to teach critical thinking without hitting people over the head with it,” he said.

Puzzles also have an academic significance in mathematics, science and computer science, he said. IU art history professors have also approached puzzles as a visual art while cognitive science professors have used them to study how the mind works, he said. But above all, Rhoda said puzzles teach persistence. “Persistence is really the first tool in any puzzle enthusiast’s tool box,” he said. “What comes first is that stubbornness. Everything else follows when you sit down and try it.”

Unusual books of Lilly Library By Clark Gudas @this_isnt_clark

Rebecca Baumann, assistant librarian at the Lilly Library, unzipped a red zipper on a white book sleeve that read “Lay text.” Inside was a garment bag with two soggy, drooping latex gloves. Baumann raised up the the book inside, a collection of six leaves of wax paper suspended on a hook. “Art must not be hung,” the first sheet read. Founded in 1960, the Lilly Library contains about 400,000 books, 100,000 pieces of music and more than 7.5 million manuscripts, according to the Lilly Library website. The library contains a Gutenberg Bible, one of the first books to exist in print and one of 22 that still exists, according to the Gutenberg Bible website. The library also contains collections of medieval works, author manuscripts and art. The book “Lay text” by Angela Lorenz exists in a collection of 40 numbered copies. “It wins the award for the grossest book in the collection,” Baumann said, after she held up the browning latex gloves. Baumann teaches ILSZ681: The Book 1450 to the Present in the Lilly Library. She presented a selection of books that have unconventional construction or push the limit of what can be defined as a book. One book was a case of multicolored pencils, which appear to simply be colored pencils at first glance. The pencils each carry a line of a poem, which can be constructed according to the poet’s arrangement or in any way that appeals to the reader. The pencils contain lines such as, “the lasting dream,” “nothing to do” and “which was it?”

Baumann next presented an average-sized book titled, “Committee Report for the Arts Endowment Funding Comprehensive List of Approved Art from 1990.” The book is hard backed with a purple cover and a giant bolt and padlock in the center of the cover. “It’s an unreadable book,” Baumann said to the class. “Art is locked down, you guys. This is not approved. You can’t open it.” The book comes with a key. “I am fairly confident the key doesn’t work,” Baumann said. “I tried it and tried it. I’m betting that’s part of the interpretation, is that you have the key, but the key doesn’t work.” Another book Baumann showed the class, an 1820 copy of Giovanni Boccaccio’s “The Decameron,” is thin and elongated with tiny print. “But why would you ever print a book in this format?” Baumann said. “It’s certainly not a convenient way to read.” The reason for printing the book has been met with speculation, but nothing is certain. The inside of the book calls itself “papyriform edition.” Michael Suarez, director of the rare book school at the University of Virginia, proposed the idea that it was created in imitation of Egyptian papyri form, though it is only a guess. “When the guy who is the biggest name in rare books is befuddled by a book that you own, you’re happy,” Baumann said. “Mars” by Daniel E. Kelm is a hexagonal artist book that comes in a set with a large ball bearing, a Civil War-era canister ball and a piece of meteorite. These represent the "three faces of Mars," according to IUCAT. The book itself unfolds in different directions that spell out different words. One way spells out “Mars,” and other ways spell “Aries” and “God of

War.” Some hexagons contain images. The book also contains pins that allow it to be built into a 3-D shape. “This is another good example of an artist book, and an artist has all these deep thoughts and ideas about what it all means,” Baumann said. Baumann brought out a box and opened it. Inside was a book that read “Hamlet” on the spine in gold lettering. “This is the only book in the collection that I’m not

allowed to touch,” Baumann said. “I can’t open it. I can open the case.” The book is printed on cork sheets, which makes the turn of a page liable to tear it. “That’s a question of why,

why would you print a book on cork?” Baumann said. “The answer is pretty much to show that you can. But then it becomes this absolutely useless object.” Among these, the Lilly Library also owns a collec-

tion of especially tiny books, multiple of which can fit into the palm of a person’s hand. “People make these in very limited editions with the very deliberate purpose of challenging the notion of a book,” Baumann said.

How to land a job at the Lilly Library By Clark Gudas @this_isnt_clark

The path to working at a rare books library is not as simple as enjoying books. The Indiana Daily Student sat down with librarians in the Lilly Library’s Slocum Room to talk about what schooling and experience can help one get a job at with a rare books collection. Associate director Erika Dowell Librarians usually have a master’s degree in library science or an equivalent degree, Dowell said. From that point, there are various tracks a librarian can take. There is a digital track for those interested in social media and website management. The reference track involves helping patrons with questions. The cataloging and description track creates records and processes manuscript materials for the IU Library Catalog, or IUCAT library system. For librarians interested in repairing and taking care of books, the preservation track offers that opportunity. Curators work a lot with the public, dealers and donors to bring in materials; write about collections; present exhibitions; and talk about collections at conferences. “Other library jobs are more related to stuff that’s online, and might

help people find works,” Dowell said. “A lot of special collections work is focused on the physical materials and helping people navigate the physical collections.” Having a bachelor’s degree in history and an additional degree in a humanities discipline is common for librarians, Dowell said. Dowell said the newer pieces of the collection, such as Gene Roddenberry’s announcement advertisement for the production of the original "Star Trek" television series, are just as cool as the older works in the library. “You get to show people books that are 500 years old or older and see their reactions,” Dowell said. “People are just astonished they can come into a library like this and see something like that and be allowed to touch it.”

Lilly as one of three primary teachers. Maryanski is also part of the public services team that answers reference questions, and does outreach and event programming. “We’ll have lectures, we’ll have talks, we do the First Thursdays programming," Maryanski said. The exhibition in the Lilly Library’s Slocum Room, titled “1968,” was co-curated by Maryanski and public services librarian Isabel Planton.

Education and outreach librarian Maureen Maryanski Educational and outreach librarian Maureen Maryanski recalled a moment at her local library from her childhood. “I remember being six years old and asking a librarian at the public library, 'How do I become a librarian?'” Maryanski said. As education and outreach librarian, Maryanski plays a role in the public presentations put on by Lilly. She plans and teaches classes at the

“Where else can you play with a Gutenberg Bible and Kurt Vonnegut’s papers, sometimes in the same day?” Maryanski said. Maryanski went to IU as an undergraduate and pursued a double major in dance and history until an injury prompted her to focus on history. She said she realized how much she liked library work when she got a job at Wells Library. It wasn’t until she walked into the Lilly Library for the first time and saw “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” by Mary

Wollstonecraft on display did she realize she wanted to work in a rare books library. “I think that book is responsible for a lot of what I do today, and for me being where I am,” Maryanski said. From that point, Maryanski earned her masters in history and library science, during which she gained experience working the circulation and reference desks at Wells and interning for public services at the Lilly. After earning her degree, Maryanski started doing dance archivist work for a few months before becoming a reference librarian at the New York Historical Society Library, a library that specializes in early American history. “This position is exactly what I want to be doing,” Maryanski said. “My favorite thing to do is to be in the classroom, and help other people have cool moments with materials and learn how to engage with them and interrogate them.”

“This position is exactly what I want to be doing,” Maureen Maryanski, librarian

Graduate student Megan Howes Megan Howes, a graduate student studying library science, is a desk attendant at the Lilly Library. Whether in the front desk or the reading room, Howes helps answer reference questions and prepares patrons with their books and materials in the reading room.


Howes came to IU in the fall of 2013. She took classes with Professor Christoph Irmscher that met at the Lilly Library biweekly. “That really got me interested in being around the Lilly and being around rare materials and books,” Howes said. Howes started working at the Lilly just before pursuing her master's degree in library science. She said she enjoys seeing the enthusiasm people get when they experience the different things the library has to offer. “This job has really helped me develop my career goals,” Howes said. “It really has helped me develop as a person and as a professional.” Among her favorite objects are the medieval manuscripts and a collection of miniature books. “They’re really tiny,” Howes said. “There are some you can only just kind of flip open with a toothpick." Howes said she hopes to work at a rare book library at a university similar to IU as a special collections librarian or with public outreach. “I would love to be involved in a library, especially public services or outreach,” Howes said. “I would love to have an education position and help to teach others what makes rare materials and books special, and why they’re useful for education and research.”

Oprah should not be our next president


In recent days, the outcry for Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 presidential run has been deafening. The woman herself hasn’t confirmed any potential run, but Democrats and Oprah fans across the nation think she is the best option we have. This all spurred from her speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award at the 2018 Golden Globes on Jan. 7. In the speech, she commended the #MeToo movement as well as the newest addition, the #TimesUp movement. She recalled her feelings from childhood of seeing history-making black actors win awards on television and told the story of Recy Taylor, a young black mother

port. Specifically, there are 38 women of color serving in Congress, seven women of color serving as statewide executive electives, 450 women of color serving as state legislators and nine women of color serving as mayors in the nation’s 100 most populated cities. Altogether, that is 509 women of color already in office with some sort of political experience that we could support in a run for president. However, if Oprah were to actually run for president, we would like to bring some things to attention for the nation. According to Forbes’ real time net worth calculator,

who was brutally raped with no justice in the 1940s. The speech itself was amazing and inspiring. However, it is not necessary for the public to see one good speech as making a person worthy of running for president. The Editorial Board does not see a presidential run from Oprah as a good thing. The first issue we take with Oprah for President is that we do not want to see an unqualified celebrity running for a serious political office. We would love to see a woman of color in high political office, especially as the president, but Oprah is extremely underqualified and there are already women of color in office we could sup-

Oprah’s net worth is approximately $2.8 billion. This makes her an incredibly rich woman, and as we have seen in the past, the rich are not very interested in helping the masses. On top of that, Oprah is a very materialistic celebrity who has promoted fake science and anti-vaxxing. When Oprah opened her Leadership Academy for Girls, she was criticized by the South African government for making the academy too lavish and expensive for the young girls to attend. “These girls deserve to be surrounded by beauty, and beauty does inspire,” The New York Post reports as Oprah’s response to the criticisms. If

this is how she responds to well-rooted criticisms of an academy that is meant to better and help poor girls in Africa, how would she respond to criticisms of her foreign policy or legislature? Oprah certainly wouldn’t be our worst option for president, but we are becoming too enamored with the idea of having a celebrity as our leader. Oprah’s platform is large enough to make a difference, sure, but we would rather see her use that platform to endorse a future candidate who has experience. She could put her money towards supporting that candidate helping them create a great campaign.



Carmel needs a mosque

Stop depoliticizing Martin Luther King Jr.

Maddy Klein is a junior in English and comparative literature.

Carmel, Indiana, is typically known for its affluence. Last year, Time Money’s annual Best Places to Live evaluation ranked it as No. 16 in the nation based on its “thriving” economy, low unemployment and “picturesque” scenery. Now, in 2018, the city is making headlines for its discriminatory treatment of Muslim citizens who are attempting to build a new mosque and religious center. Although some citizens of the 16th-best community in the country would not welcome to a mosque, the Al Salaam Foundation should be allowed to build a mosque in Carmel. Based on the nature of standards established by city officials, which typically allow houses of worship to exist in residential areas, and on the city’s reception of religious centers of other faiths, it would be difficult to deny that the Carmel residents who oppose the mosque are being unjust to their Muslim neighbors. Without the center, Muslims from Carmel, and neighboring Westfield and Zionsville, who affiliate with the Al Salaam Foundation — the organization driving the plans for the mosque — have been meeting in an Indianapolis office space that is not properly

equipped to accommodate them. Members of the Al Salaam Foundation and the faith community it serves are pursuing a very reasonable goal. Carmel residents should be reaching out to help them achieve it rather than hindering its progress. The issue does not appear to be blanket contempt for all non-Christian faiths. Though Indiana is 72 percent Christian, religious centers in Carmel for other faiths such as Judaism, and lesser known Christian subsidiaries like, Greek Orthodoxy and Mormonism, did not encounter equivalent opposition when they built their own worship centers in recent years. In fact, increases in the diversity of Carmel’s religious representation were seen as helpful to the community’s image in the eyes of potential international investors. I will, of course, object to the notion that economic profit should be the primary motive for religious acceptance, but the context this attitude illuminates throws the discrimination the Muslim community faces into even sharper contrast with Carmel’s treatment of other faiths. As the Indianapolis Star reports, Carmel residents’ concerns about the new mosque focus on “property values hurt by additional traffic and calls to prayer from the minaret, something not actually in the

plans.” Much like the nature of stereotyping itself and the biases it produces, the basis of these comments is not fact but fear. People who live in neighborhoods composed of $700,000 homes are irrationally worried that a culture unfairly discriminated against by many Americans will infringe on their way of life. As far as I can tell, it is in fact these concerned citizens whose actions are infringing on the way of life of the area’s Muslim residents, not the other way around. This behavior is not uncommon in the landscape of American sociocultural history, but it does appear to be part of a particularly negative surge in contemporary attitudes. The Council on AmericanIslamic Relations, the primary Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization in America, shows in their April-June 2017 quarterly report that “the number of bias incidents,” defined as “cases in which there was an identifiable element of religious discrimination,” increased by “24 percent compared to the first half of 2016.” The solution is simple. The Al Salaam Foundation should receive nothing but approval for its plans, and those who oppose the mosque should educate themselves on the reality of the matter.

Emma Getz is a sophomore in English and history.

During Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the days after, many journalists, politicians and citizens remember his words and share them, whether it be through public speeches, articles, art or social media posts. While most of these sentiments are quite sincere, many are extremely hypocritical and lead to the whitewashing of King and his legacy. For example, Fox News published an article entitled, “Please stop politicizing Martin Luther King Day. It’s a day for national unity, not political division.” The ignorance in that headline is frankly astounding. The article goes on to express the author’s distaste at the most recent issue of The New Yorker, which addressed King’s legacy through the Black Lives Matter movement and protests of today. The New Yorker cover artist, Mark Ulriksen, said, “How would you feel if you had to show up at work every day and salute a country that treats black people like second-class citizens? I’m glad that Colin Kaepernick and Michael Ben-

nett are making it political. I’m sure that if King were around today, he’d be disappointed at the slow pace of progress ... ” Fox News writer Jeremy Hunt resents this statement, but Ulriksen’s words are grounded in the historical precedent of King’s legacy. Instead of examining all of his speeches and actions during the civil rights movement, Hunt picks very specific quotes from King to use in his piece. For example, he uses the quote, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” Hunt blatantly ignores all of King’s quotes about direct political action and activism that certainly still apply to the modern protests and movements taking place. For example, in the Letter from a Birmingham Jail, King says, “You deplore the demonstrations taking place ... but your statement fails to express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations. I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals merely with the effects and

does not grapple with the underlying causes.” Furthermore, King says in the same letter, “I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate ... who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’” And Fox News is not the sole perpetrator of this grave misrepresentation — the national media watch group FAIR described the King quotations shared on the Washington Post Twitter page as a “watered down, wall-calendar version of King.” Depoliticizing King is absolutely impossible and unfounded in history. The government resented him, and he went to jail. He gravely disapproved of the white moderates that, to this day, call for “depoliticization” and peace when they have no idea themselves of the mistreatment black citizens face to this very day. Therefore, during the week following MLK day, his words should be remembered and valued for their power in civil rights activism rather than twisted to fit an agenda he would have never supported. emmagetz@umail.


Don’t trivialize Ansari’s actions Aziz Ansari is known for his quirky television characters and often-relatable stand-up. This week, however, an exposé published by the website portrayed the comedian in a dark, but perhaps even more relatable scenario for college-aged women. According to Babe, a woman by the alias of “Grace” met Ansari at a party, exchanged numbers, and

agreed to a date. Grace alleges that later, Ansari made sexual advances, toward which she attempted to signal her discomfort before eventually leaving. In the wake of this article, variations of “If Aziz Ansari committed sexual assault, then every woman I know has been sexually assaulted,” spread across social media. While the events

of this evening were not rape, they are a frightening example of the rape culture occurring on college campuses. At IU, we are reminded by every bathroom stall that help is available to sexual assault victims, yet we have been socialized to believe that coercing women into sexual acts is normal. We have memorized the definition of consent, but find

ourselves confused, violated and shameful in the wake of “bad hookups” — as if we are responsible for our experience because we are prudish or oversensitive. It’s easy to be consumed by celebrity scandal, but it is important to remember that everyday women, many of them students, lie at the center of the #MeToo movement. Its mission is not to em-

bark on a witch hunt, but to call attention to the fact that it is the very definition of rape culture to trivialize situations such as this. New York Times contributor Bari Weiss alleges Ansari is guilty only of his inability to read minds. I disagree. Aziz Ansari is not a criminal, but the allegations against him are not to be taken lightly.

His actions were undoubtedly inappropriate, and we must use this story to start a larger societal conversation about consent, encouraging students to engage in open and honest discussion during sexual encounters. It doesn’t take a mind reader to understand “no.” Allison Shoenfeld

“Boy band” drops three incredible albums then the crew made its way to its now-home base: California. The crew connected on a Kanye West fan forum, according to The Fader, and you can definitely hear this influence in some of their songs. Not only does BROCKHAMPTON make incredible tunes, but the group is also an entirely independent creative agency and record label, according to The Fader. In 2017 alone, the self-proclaimed boy band released three albums — “SATURATION”, “SATURATION II” and “SATURATION III.” The first was released in June, the second in August, and the third was released in December. Typically, when a group

Hannah Reed is a junior in journalism.

There are plenty of places where you can listen to BROCKHAMPTON’s “SATURATION III.” I’ve listened to it in the car, while cooking, and even in a cramped airplane on a flight to London while writing this review. BROCKHAMPTON offers something different and new. The self-titled “Internet’s first boy band” has 15 members, but they are more than just rappers. Some are art directors and managers, according to The Fader, a New York Citybased music magazine. Kevin Abstract created the band in 2015 in Texas, and

releases that amount of albums in one year, some of them are subpar. Stunningly, nothing from BROCKHAMPTON’s 2017 collection was lacking in any way. The album “SATURATION III” as a whole can be described in one word: hype. I don’t know how else to put it. The group creates a sound that blends a mix of Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and even Odd Future. While I can hear the inspiration, the group entirely holds their own and creates a sound I haven’t heard put together before. I can hear Kanye’s influential yell-rapping style in “STUPID,” and I can hear a combination of

Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean in “LIQUID,” but neither of these qualities are the dominating ones. The group is so large that it’s hard for me to tell who is rapping and when, which was something I also struggled with when I began listening to Odd Future. It takes a while, and it usually takes listening to the group members' solo songs, for me to really hear who is who. Still, all the artists possess a different style, and all of them blend perfectly together with their interesting beats. The group is set to perform at many major music festivals in 2018, including Bonnaroo and Coachella.

Sometimes, listening to the entirety of an album feels like a little bit too much, so while I think this album deserves that, I would like to highlight a few of my favorites. The album opens with an upbeat track called “BOOGIE,” which says the band is the "best boy band since One Direction.” “BOOGIE” has a fun, steady beat. This song is one you will find yourself bobbing your head and tapping your feet to, even if you’re in the tightest part of an airplane. Many of the songs, including one of my favorites, "ZIPPER," feature a saxophone layered under what sounds like someone yelling “woo!”

over and over. “HOTTIE” makes me feel full of joy, and it's a track I anticipate being on my 2018 most-listened-to list. “STUPID” sounds like a combination of Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean, with a hint of Odd Future and Kanye West, twisted into something special and different. BROCKHAMPTON’s style is hard to describe. It’s a mix of things I know and love, while at the same time it’s something entirely new that I’ve never heard before. I would highly recommend this group to anyone looking for some new, exciting music.


Before you ask "Why are you so dressed up?" Adele Poudrier is a senior in journalism.

a taller heel or a vibrantly colored skirt, I’ve found myself wiping the bright color from my lips, slipping into sneakers or changing back into jeans just to avoid a dreaded question that I am tired of answering: “What are you so dressed up for?” Before a compliment or sometimes even a smile, this tends to be the first words that come from a friend or even an acquaintance’s voice when they see someone looking a little more dressed up than usual. While I believe there is

Every now and then, we look in the mirror and decide to spice up our appearance. For some, it could be as small as adding a couple curls to your hair, a bold lipstick, or even throwing on a dress that hasn’t seen the light of day in months or maybe even years. It could be a Monday or a Friday. It could be the morning or the evening, but either way, it doesn’t warrant a reason. So, often whenever I’ve debated adding a bright lipstick,


rarely ill will intended behind these seven words, it frustrates me nonetheless. Why must it be assumed that I’m dressing up for something? Why can’t the first thought ever be that I am simply dressing up for myself? A similar question that is even worse that commonly comes from the overprotective fathers, the overbearing boyfriends and the teasing friends when one’s dressed in their Sunday best on a random Wednesday afternoon is, “Well, who are you so dressed up for?” It’s usually asked with a

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 7 — A project with lucrative potential could hit a roadblock or delay. Coordination between you and your partner works it out. Keep secrets. Wait patiently.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 6 — Contemplate your moves before making them. Avoid controversy or drama. Find somewhere peaceful to hide out and plan. Impulsiveness could get expensive. Relax.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is an 8 — Craft professional plans, and put wheels in motion later. Take charge of where you’re going and strategize for success. Hold your temper. Wait for developments.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)— Today is an 8 — You’re especially confident and strong. Avoid steamrolling quieter folk. Your personal values could get tested. Slow down and listen. Provide thoughtful leadership.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — Don’t take action yet. Finish preparations before launching. Your social life is a whirl this month, with Venus in Aquarius. Enjoy peaceful privacy.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is an 8 — Stay flexible with travel plans. Have a backup option to relieve worry or frustration, and avoid an expensive mess. Let sleeping dogs lie.



playful inflection, but it’s tired and sheds light on a common idea: the assumption that if you are dressed up, there is a reason or a person you are looking so nice for. At first glance, it seems like an innocent question, but it’s in fact loaded. There’s an insinuation that if you’re dressed up, you’re trying to impress someone — that the only reason you’re wearing a little extra makeup or an embellished dress is because you know attention will be drawn to you from your special attire. Often times when I re-

spond that I’m dressed up for no reason at all, it follows by a shaking of the shoulders or an empty nod. But I’ve realized it isn’t for no reason. I dress nicely for me. I love the liberty of wearing a leather skirt on a Tuesday and a loud vest on Thursday simply because I feel like it. Clothing is empowering. It can be like putting on a cloak of confidence for the day. When something in my closet makes me feel good, that’s why I wear it. Not because of who may be looking. To those who find the words “What are you so

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is an 8 — Find simple ways to save money for your family. Grow your emergency fund. You can conserve resources without discomfort. Stay home instead of going out.

temptations. Stay cool. Figure out a good landing spot.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 7 — Navigate changes with your partner. Silly arguments spark easily. Compromise for solutions. Let the little stuff go. Treat each other and yourselves with compassion. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is an 8 — Passions may be in high gear; look before you leap! Avoid automatic outbursts or expensive


Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is an 8 — Resist the temptation to throw your money around. Tempers may be temporarily short; avoid stepping on anyone’s sensitivities. Let your heart guide you. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 6 — Proceed with caution in a domestic dispute. Stay objective in a tense situation. It’s OK to disagree. Withhold judgment or sharp words. Wait for developments.

dressed up for?” falling out of their mouth when they notice a friend switching up the usual jeans and a t-shirt, here is a tip. Instead of questioning them, compliment them. To the women who look in the mirror and question if they should add a bold lip, a fun pair of glasses or an embroidered jacket in light of the questioning stares, I say wear it and work it. And when they ask, “Who are you are so dressed up for?” You can smile and firmly reply, “Me.” Sagittarius — Today is an 8 — Edit your words carefully before hitting “send.” You don’t have to tell everything to everyone. Consider consequences, ramifications and differing views.
