Men out on bond for sex crimes


Revenge win

Current and former IU students face molestation charges By Jack Evans | @JackHEvans

After one IU student accused of child molestation was released from jail on bond Wednesday two more men accused of molesting the same girl appeared in court to plead not guilty. One of the men accused is an IU student and the other is a recent graduate. Master’s student and IU biology employee Matthew Filipek, 23, is already out on bond. Kelley School of Business graduate Thomas Snape, 23, was planned to be released on bond Thursday night after a judge signed off to return him to his parents’ suburban Chicago home. Both men allegedly had sex on separate occasions with a 13-yearold girl they met on the social media app Whisper. IU student George Pearcy, 21, and Evan Miller, 25, were also arrested and charged with child molestation in the same investigation. Snape’s parents attended the initial hearing and expected to take him with them to their home in Northbrook, Illinois, Snape’s attorney told Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Todd. They promised to keep Snape confined to their home. In the courtroom, another woman, waiting on her own hearing, responded loudly to the news the accused child molester may get to go home. “Oh, hell no,” she screamed before being escorted out by a bailiff. “That’s poison. He needs to go.” Snape’s father, Allan Snape, a retired business executive from England, told the judge he still has family there but his son does not visit often. Snape has both United States and British passports, which his attorney said would be handed over if he were allowed to leave with his parents. Todd agreed, on the conditions that Snape stay within Indiana and Illinois and give up his passports, which are at his parents’ home, by Feb. 27. Filipek, who had been released on bond earlier in the day, had a shorter hearing. He entered his plea, and one of his two attorneys requested a jury trial. Miller, who has a criminal history that includes a battery charge, appears to be in jail still. Miller was arrested Feb. 2. The other three men were arrested earlier this week. Pearcy posted bail Wednesday, according to MyCase, an online database of Indiana civil and criminal cases. Pearcy is a junior studying political science and American history, according to his LinkedIn page. He was an intern at the office of the Bloomington City Clerk Nicole Bolden, but his employment was terminated once the office was informed of the charges, Bolden said. As of December, Pearcy was the parliamentarian for IU Student Association, though his name no longer appears on the organization’s website. His LinkedIn page says he’s been politically involved since at least age 14, when he worked on a state-wide campaign for the first time. His Instagram page is filled with pre-election endorsements for politicians includSEE MOLESTATION, PAGE 5


Junior guard Tyra Buss goes up for a lay up against Michigan on Thursday in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Buss scored a team-high 21 points to help lead the Hoosiers to a 72-61 victory against the Wolverines.

Hoosiers avenge January loss to No. 20-ranked Wolverines By Josh Eastern | @JoshEastern

When IU needed a bucket at the end of the game, it turned to junior guard Tyra Buss. The Hoosiers led by as much as 23 in the first half. The No. 20 Michigan Wolverines clawed their way back and cut it down to as close as eight points. IU was in the midst of a five-plus minute scoring drought when Buss hit a free throw. Seconds later, she stuck the dagger in the heart of the Wolverines with a floater from the right side of the lane. IU held on down the stretch to notch its first win against a ranked team this season by beating No. 20 Michigan, 72-61, Thursday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. “I can’t tell you how excited I am and thrilled for our players,” IU Coach Teri Moren said. “We talked about the significance of this game in particular. I thought they answered the bell in a big way.” Michigan wasn’t hitting shots early, but it was only a matter of time until they did. The Wolverines came in with the second-best field goal percentage in the Big Ten. In the second half, they shot 47 percent, which is also their overall average. Buss said after the game Michigan made it tougher on them because of its pressure. She continued by saying the Hoosiers | @dominojean

Rather than an atmosphere filled with loud music or videos of rowdy crowds, Shane Greene began his talk on punk, pop and revolution in Peru with complete silence. That silence filled the room as about 20 attendees viewed high resolution artwork and read the stories of punk groups and anarchists in Peru during the Cold War who were tortured, beaten and imprisoned. Gardner Bovingdon, a professor in Eurasian studies at IU, moderated and introduced Greene as an associate professor and anthropologist at IU. Greene wasn’t just an academic, Bovingdon said, but also an organizer of rallies and conferences for causes he cares about. “He’s not just a scholar of

Today’s game was really important, and we all knew that going in. We had a good two days of prep, and I thought we were really prepared.” The Hoosiers currently hold the four-seed in the Big Ten Tournament with an 8-5 conference record. IU has won three straight games heading into its second-to-last road game of the season against the 1-11 Nebraska Cornhuskers on Sunday in Lincoln. With three games left to play, the Hoosiers can’t let up if they want to see themselves in the NCAA Tournament. Moren said after the game there is still a lot of basketball left on the schedule. “We have a tendency at Indiana to always make things interesting,” Moren said.

Teach-in focuses on state public education By Jesse Naranjo | @jesselnaranjo

Students, faculty and Bloomington residents participated in a teach-in event Wednesday afternoon at the School of Education on the importance of public education in the state of Indiana. The teach-in was structured by four circles of discussion. Each circle had a presenter who explained the issue they specialized in. On the agenda was school choice, the grading system for schools, the issue of state superintendent being an appointed as opposed to an elected official, and the relationship between Common Core standards and Indiana’s standards for education. Cathy Fuentes-Rohwer , who chairs Monroe County’s chapter of the Indiana Coalition for Public Education, led a discussion on school choice and voucher programs in the state and explained why she thought they were flawed. “There’s been a concerted attack on public education in Indiana, specifically since 2011,” Fuentes-Rohwer said.

were rushing shots and they weren’t getting the shots they wanted. Moren summed it up quite frankly when asked what enabled Michigan to make a run in the fourth quarter. “They’re really good,” Moren said. “As we said to the guys at halftime, this is not new for them. In their last two of three games, they’ve been down at half, and they just fought their way back. It was a matter of time before they knocked down some of those shots.” The Hoosiers had just about the best start imaginable. As for Michigan, it was the exact opposite. After junior forward Amanda Cahill got the Hoosiers on the board with a 3-pointer, IU never gave up that lead all night. After Michigan made it 10-8, the Hoosiers took control with a 13-0 run counteracted by the Wolverines going more than seven minutes scoreless. IU’s lead going into the fourth quarter was at 19 points. Then Michigan had it down to nine points. The Wolverines ripped off 10 consecutive points, and all of a sudden it was a game again. IU went scoreless for more than five minutes. The Hoosiers knew the stakes coming into Thursday’s matchup with the No. 20 Wolverines. This win against Michigan was IU’s first top 50 RPI win of the season. Adding this game to the résumé was something the Hoosiers

human rights but an activist as well,” Bovingdon said. Greene recently released a book, “Punk and Revolution: Seven More Interpretations of Peruvian Reality,” in which he goes through what it was like in Peru during the 1980s. He said for punk groups in Peru the stakes were much higher than they were in the United States. The example, what he called “Situation J” from his book, that Greene dwelled on was that of the image of Mao Zedong from the Chinese Communist Party. The image was created by the artist Alfredo Marquez. Marquez spent four years in prison for his portrayal of Mao with red lips. The image had various meanings, and the interpretations reached by artists like Marquez and SEE PUNK, PAGE 5

This is when the state passed its school voucher legislation, which allows students whose families believe they would benefit from alternative education to receive their portion of local public school funding as a coupon applicable to private and charter school tuition. Fuentes-Rohwer said originally this was most likely intended for underprivileged students but now is used by people with a higher household income. State legislators presented this legislation as opening up a marketplace for education, though Fuentes-Rohwer said these laws were not written by teachers. They were actually drafted by organizations such as the American Legislative Exchange Council, a nonprofit that drafted and sponsored laws such as controversial “stand your ground” and voter identification laws. A big difference and issue Fuentes-Rohwer said she saw between public schools and charter schools was a level of government oversight. She said charter schools, like the one that occupies her former elementary school in Detroit, operate with impunity of

being with people who are different from you. The problem she said charter schools have is their ability to control who comes in the door and does not. “I know that I want for my four kids to be critical thinkers,” Fuentes-Rohwer said. SEE EDUCATION, PAGE 5

Office helps students abroad

Editors Dominick Jean and Cody Thompson

Peer tutors give their support, language help By Hannah Boufford @hannahboufford


Alongside their Moroccan host student Yousra Alami, columnist Lauren Saxe and fellow study abroad student Michelle Dunham say goodbye during their last breakfast in Chefchaouen, Morocco. A program in Morocco is one out of 350 programs in which IU students can study abroad. By Rachel Leffers | @rachelleffers

From studying multiculturalism and human rights in Morocco to sustainable development in India, IU students have the opportunity to travel to countries across the world to study several different subjects. With about 350 study abroad programs offered to IU students, there are programs available for students to earn academic credits in all majors while immersing themselves into a different culture. “The benefits of traveling abroad are immeasurable,” senior James Riggleman said. “It showed me how different life is outside of our culture and how others viewed America.” Riggleman spent the fall 2016 semester studying abroad in Russia, where he studied Russian grammar, conversation in Russian, phonetics, culture and United States-Russia relations. Kyle Hayes, a study abroad adviser with the Office of Overseas Study, said the office encourages students to study abroad because of the

benefits and experiences it provides them. Because the overseas study website has all the basic information students need to know about the programs, the advisers typically talk with students who have potential safety concerns, financial aid inquiries or need to narrow their potential options down to one country. Although there are a variety of choices for students, Hayes said most come into the office knowing the region they want to study in. From this point forward, it is the academic adviser’s job to help students tailor their options, he said. Because every student has different academic pursuits and cultural interests, the advisers help students figure out when, where and what they should study abroad. Hayes said the first concern for advisers is what the student is studying so they can find a program that fits the student’s interests. Riggleman said he knew he wanted to travel abroad because he is interested in becoming a linguist for the military. He said Russia was the right choice for him because

it allowed him to work toward his future goals while using the skills he has acquired through his Russian minor. Most students apply and travel to programs in Western Europe, but Hayes said it’s not uncommon to have students inquire about nontraditional programs, such as those in Africa or the Middle East. Although traveling to a foreign country could put students in dangerous situations, the Office of Overseas Study monitors all regions the programs are in, Hayes said. In order to ensure student safety, they follow the warnings and advice the State Department sends out about each country. “We monitor security very safely with partners who are over seas and on site,” Hayes said. Because traveling abroad is costly for most students, finances are another top concern when students come into the office, Hayes said. “That’s one of the biggest reasons students make it in the door,” Hayes said. Although, Hayes said the financial concerns lessens when students learn about the numerous scholarship

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS STUDYING ABROAD Overseas Study Scholarships $750 - $2,500 IU Departments, Schools and Programs $500 - $4,000 National Scholarships up to $10,000 per semester opportunities available to them. There are scholarships available from individual departments, colleges and programs. Scholarships can be awarded to students based on their academic merit, financial standing and individual life circumstances, Hayes said. Hayes said the Office of Overseas Study is the central study abroad location for all students on campus, so they can help any student who is interested in traveling abroad figure out how they can do so. “It honestly changed me,” Riggleman said. “I became more confident and outspoken because it forced me to adapt to a different culture and way of life. I didn’t have all of the luxuries that we do in America, and it made me appreciate the smaller things in life.”

Planned Parenthood gets new neighbor By Kelly Evans | @knickele5

On the first day of February, Bloomington’s Planned Parenthood office received a new next-door neighbor. Just one building away from the Planned Parenthood is a Women’s Care Center, the newest facility available to pregnant women who seek resources to accommodate their pregnancies. Ali Slocum, communications and marketing director for Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said the close proximity of the two clinics is no coincidence. “We routinely experience these types of centers being built next to our health center,” Slocum said. Even down to the messaging and branding, these clinics may look similar to a Planned Parenthood, but the clinics are different in their approach to pregnancy and the options they offer for women. Planned Parenthood offers a variety of services and products, such as abortion, birth control, the morning-after pill, STD testing and education on women’s health in general, according to its website. “Contraception is the number one service that we provide, overwhelmingly,” Slocum said. Women’s Care Center offers similar pregnancy services with an emphasis on determining whether women are pregnant in the first place. Planned Parenthood more so focuses on the options women have once their pregnancy is confirmed. The Women’s Care Center website identifies free pregnancy tests and free ultrasounds as some of the main options women have at the clinic, and while its website does feature an abortion webpage for women to research,

the clinic doesn’t perform the procedures. Instead, the center verifies a pregnancy first and then decides between a number of options women have available to them on how to proceed. According to the Women’s Care Center website statistics, up to 40 percent of pregnancies result in a natural miscarriage. However, the Centers for Disease Control reports that rates of miscarriage are much lower than this and steadily decreasing. In 2010, the rate of miscarriage was 17 percent according to the CDC. Slocum said even with the creation of a new center next door, the Bloomington Planned Parenthood will continue to give the same care and level of service it always has. Slocum said Planned Parenthood patients and supporters can note the difference between the two facilities after going to Women’s Care Center first. “Then they came to us at Planned Parenthood and said they appreciated hearing unbiased, accurate advice,” Slocum said. Slocum said, although they don’t ask patients to selfidentify, the main age group Planned Parenthood sees is young adults and students because of IU’s campus. “In the Bloomington health center, the overwhelming majority of patients we see are 20-24 years old,” Slocum said. “The next group is 25-29 years old. The difference percentage-wise is 105 percent.” However, Women’s Care Center isn’t the only entity that rejects Planned Parenthood and its abortion services in particular. At IU, Advocates for Life is a law school club that promotes a pro-life stance. Robert Rowlett, president of AFL, a graduate w

Thao Nguyen, a junior studying neuroscience, was born in Vietnam and moved to Indiana when she was 4. She said she understands the struggle of learning a new language. Now she’s an English tutor at the Asian Culture Center. The English tutoring program includes 14 tutors that are typically available from noon to 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Dillon Smith, a graduate assistant at the ACC said the program is beneficial for students. “It’s nice to have this kind of program that’s like a bridge for international students,” Smith said. Smith is in charge of coordinating the tutoring schedules. Tutoring takes place in the ACC, and students can just walk in to talk with a tutor. Smith said tutors help students understand their projects, converse in English and learn about American culture. Angela Marchessault, a junior studying information systems, has been a tutor at the center since September 2016. She said she had previous tutoring jobs before, and the cultural aspect drew her to this position in particular. Marchessault is currently learning Chinese and said she enjoyed visiting China on several occasions in the past. “It’s great when I go there that people are willing to help me, so I want to show that same willingness to help,” she said. Some of the tutors said they enjoy learning about other cultures while helping international students learn about American traditions. For example, when Inchara Raj, a junior studying history, is tutoring, she said she always makes a point to ask her tutees about their cultures to connect with them. “It helps me help them improve their English,” she said.

student and second-year law student, said the group is not religious-based but centers more around education and information. The group has featured a number of different experts in fields such as bio-ethics, stem cell research, gene therapy techniques and medical procedures like physician-assisted suicide and abortion. The group’s focus is on all life in general not just that of fetuses. “Pro-life, we embrace that broadly,” Rowlett said. “In my own words, the AFL, like most lawyers, our goal is advocacy.” Rowlett said oftentimes the media and the courts disperse information, but it’s often unclear what is scientifically accurate. AFL presentations have worked to debunk rumors about abortion and the effects it can have for women after the fact. Patricia Casey from the University College Dublin Library conducted research about abortion and young women and the outcomes abortion can have on young women. Casey found women who opt for abortions can encounter a greater chance of psychiatric disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, substance misuse, depression and anxiety, among others, after the procedure. “Obviously AFL is prolife, so we’re not in support

of abortion, but that’s not to say we don’t recognize why certain women seek to get an abortion,” Rowlett said. AFL, despite its understanding of certain women’s decision to have this procedure, still encourages other choices other than Planned Parenthood. On March 30, AFL will have its next event, including a display on campus titled “Why We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood.” “We think there are better alternatives than Planned Parenthood,” Rowlett said. Despite negative press and the controversial political events and discussions that have taken place recently, Slocum said Planned Parenthood isn’t deterred from providing its routine services and support. “We don’t counter-protest,” Slocum said. “But what’s so great about this political climate is that our supporters have risen up and counter protested.” Slocum said no other organization in the state does more to prevent unintended pregnancies than Planned Parenthood does and emphasized what an asset it can be for women. “We stand up for all people, and when you have policies and access to health care, it has the power to change lives,” Slocum said.

Raj said learning about different cultures is the most beneficial aspect of tutoring for her. She said she believes a lot of the information could not even be learned in a class. Smith said the process to become a tutor is simple. The center looks for native English speakers, and volunteers go through a short orientation process. From there, tutors develop their own style and adapt to the needs of their clients. Many of the tutors are already interested or are studying languages when they come to volunteer, Smith said. The number of students a tutor sees a week varies. There tend to be more tutees at the end of the year when exams and projects are prevalent, Smith said. “With those that come often, they can develop a relationship,” Smith said. “And when you develop this sort of friendship with them, then you see the most improvement.” While Marchessault said the support the ACC provides is helpful to many students, she hopes to see IU do more to reach out to international students. She said many international students often have trouble making friends with American students and believes extending invitations to international students for events would be beneficial because they don’t always have the courage to reach out themselves. “It would be a great way to give American students a similar interest and open more doors for both sides — for American students to meet with international students and international students to meet with domestic students,” Marchessault said. To some, like Nguyen, peer tutoring provides more than just language services. “I’m not only their tutor, someone they only come to when they need help, but I’m someone that they can talk to when they’re feeling lonely,” Nguyen said.

The Mathers Museum of World Cultures will be closed this summer for renovations. The museum was created as an opportunity for visitors to explore the world’s cultures in Bloomington. The museum will be closed from May 8 through Aug. 14 for renovations. The goal of the closure is to better and simplify the experience of learning about world cultures, according to an IU press release. Jason Jackson, the director of the Mathers Museum, said in the release that some of the changes are upgrades to the lighting to improve the museum’s displays and improved accessibility for the disabled. “When we reopen for fall 2017, we think visitors will really enjoy a new exhibition season presented with beautiful new lighting,” Jackson said in the release. It was almost four decades ago that IU started building the

museum on the corner of Eight Street and Indiana Avenue. Not all of the museum’s operations will be closed this summer, however. The museum will still continue its Traditional Arts Indiana program, which is an educational experience in which the museum travels around Indiana presenting exhibitions, artists and literature of world cultures. In addition, other libraries on campus will continue to be open to the public. “Many of our campus partners, including the Wylie House Museum and the Lilly Library, will continue to present outstanding exhibitions and programs for Bloomington museumgoers,” Jackson said in the release. He and his staff see this as advantageous, he said in the release, because it demonstrates the University’s continuous interest in world studies. Larmie Sanyon

Mayor delivers annual speech By Emily Ernsberger | @emilyerns

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton emphasized progress, potential and unity in his annual State of the City speech Thursday night. The address at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater focused on Bloomington’s successes in 2016, its potential in 2017, and how the city fits into the national and global political and cultural climate. Hamilton said his key policy areas in both 2016 and 2017 were jobs, the economy, affordable housing, public education and innovative and transparent government. Some of the projects from last year he referenced were the creation of a city trades district, multiple affordable housing developments, the initiation of the Switchyard Park development project and passing a referendum to increase local school

funding. Announced during the speech was the creation of the local Community Development Financial Institution, which would work with the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County to give $150,000 in grant money to help job growth. Other projects Hamilton endorsed in his speech included the proposed citywide broadband development. Axia Technology Partners is currently researching the possibility of a public fiber-optic network in Bloomington. The report will hopefully come soon, Hamilton said, and a public interest campaign will begin to gauge the public’s interest in the project. “I will urge you to consider being a model city in reducing the digital divide,” he said. Hamilton also mentioned

proposals including the use of tiny houses as affordable living, a water study of Lake Monroe and investment in local food growth and consumption. Hamilton heavily criticized the the I-69 development, particularly for how much time the project has taken. The Indiana Department of Transportation announced this week that the section alongside Bloomington would not be done until 2018. It was originally expected to be done this year. Hamilton spent a portion of the speech addressing his concern for the current political climate in the United States and criticizing the federal government for causing fear and falsehoods President Trump and other politicians have spread. Without mentioning it by name, Hamilton criticized the Trump administration for denying climate change, being against

women’s reproductive rights and using “alternative facts,” a phrase used by White House aide Kellyanne Conway that has come to be used to describe falsehoods. He said he did not want the city to be disheartened by what is happening at the state and federal levels. In his concluding remarks, he described Bloomington as a city that is representative of many of America’s divisions. Hamilton said it was a blue city in a red state, a developed town surrounded by farming and a progressive, university town that has a strong manufacturing sector. Despite all the opposites, he expressed a belief in future cooperation. “I don’t where we’re ultimately headed, but I know this: Boomington did not change on November 8 or January 20,” Hamilton said. “We will not shrink, we will not falter, we will not fail in Bloomington.”

BHSN students to speak in Orlando By Brooke McAfee @bemcafee24601

Two high school students from Bloomington High School North will speak at an upcoming national conference of more than a thousand educators in a conversation about racial justice and equity. Caleb Poer, 16, and Emma Cannon, 18, have been selected to participate in the National Education Association’s National Leadership Summit, which takes place Feb. 24-26 in Orlando, Florida. The NEA, which is the country’s largest professional employee organization, represents teachers and administrators in public education nationwide. Beth Applegate, who is president of the local Applegate Consulting Group, will moderate a discussion between the duo and other students from around the country. “They will have the opportunity, from the student perspective, to share with educators why issues of racial diversity and inclusion are important to them and how educators could support creating more racially diverse classrooms and school systems,” Applegate said. In October 2016, Poer and Cannon organized a student-led demonstration in objection to students who were wearing Confederate flags as capes to school. The students started wearing the

flags to protest a LGBT Spirit Day at the school. Poer said he was uncomfortable with the students’ display of hatred. “Every student should come to school and feel safe,” he said.” I definitely didn’t feel safe.” The two students were part of a discussion between students and educators at the superintendent’s office. After this conversation, school administrators issued a policy banning the display of Confederate flags at the school. The ban led to backlash from students and parents. Some people complained about the display of the LGBT flag, and members of the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance were the targets of

online harassment, Cannon said. After Applegate told NEA members about this student-led effort, the organization invited Poer and Cannon to the conference. The students will share their stories at the conference. Poer said he did not expect his involvement in getting the Confederate flag banned to lead to the opportunity to speak at a national conference. “A smile came to my face because I knew this was the kind of thing I was looking for in terms of reaching a broader audience and how we can make schools better for students,” he said. He said he hopes this conference will allow him to

have an even larger effect on other schools. Cannon said participating in the conference is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. She decided she could not turn it down even though she had been cast in a school play that takes place at the same time. “I’m excited to go to a place where I can hear the stories from people around the country,” she said. Cannon said she wants to discuss the ways educators can engage with minority students. “It’s important that educators have conversations about these difficult topics,” Cannon said. “They need to help de-stigmatize conversations about racial, LGBT and religious issues.”


The Monroe County History Center showcases fashion of the 20th century in the Rechter Gallery. The exhibit will stay until June 3, and it features clothing, accessories and photographs from the Monroe County History Center collection.

MCHC displays women’s fashion through the ages By Christine Fernando @christinetfern

Lining the edges of the walls are mannequins, each one wearing a garment from a distinct time in history. At one end, a corset and bustle cling to a mannequin. On the other, a green 1920s slip dress hangs loosely. The collection is a part of a new exhibit titled “What We Wore,” which displays the clothing and accessories of men, women and children from the 20th century. The exhibit will be open at the Monroe County History Center from now until June. Emily Brown, Monroe County History Center volunteer, said the wide range of clothing conveys trends throughout the twentieth century. “It’s this wild spectrum of ups and downs, crazy and more simple,” Brown said. She said this spectrum starts with long skirts and big, complicated bustles and corsets. Then the exhibit moves onto simpler silhouettes before taking an abrupt turn with the flapper fashion and short dresses of the 1920s. She said the next two decades involved a return to the conservative because of WWII. The 1960s and 1970s marked a new kind of bizarre with bright colors and unconventional silhouettes. Brown said the more outlandish trends of the 1970s are conveyed through a hostess dress that she said is the most striking item in the exhibit. The dress, fluorescent pink at the top and multicolored at the bottom, is characteristic of the decade’s weirdness, Brown said. These changes in fashion also parallel societal changes, especially those involving women’s rights, Brown said. The greatest turn for women’s rights and women’s

fashion was when women won the right to vote in 1920, she said. “Women were originally trophies restricted by corsets and tight clothes,” she said. “Eventually, women gained independence and wore looser clothing that allowed them to move and work and do things for themselves.” These changes in the societal role of women is why women’s fashion changed so rapidly, Brown said. It is also why the exhibit only features only one men’s suit. Collections manager Hilary Fleck said the fluidity of women’s fashion may also be due to the image of women as a status symbol. To Fleck, it was not the hostess dress or even the white satin wedding dress with puffy sleeves that stood out most. To her, it was the strange underwear that drew her attention. Pantalets, slips, rubberized girdles, corsets and intricate lace brassieres are mounted onto the walls behind the mannequins. “Everybody loves looking at other people’s underwear,” she said. While these styles of underwear do not endure today, Fleck said there are more timeless silhouettes from earlier in history that are still fashionable today. In particular, dresses in darker colors that are tight at the top and flare at the bottom have a timeless quality. “I would never, ever, ever wear that hostess dress,” Fleck said. “But I’d steal that little black dress and wear it tomorrow.” Brown said it is the way these clothes capture past memories and connect with the attendees that is most rewarding. “We’ve had people come in and say ‘My mom definitely wore that crazy thing,’” Brown said. “It gives people flashbacks, a walk down memory lane.”

Student group raises money for ACLU By Brooke McAfee @bemcafee24601

As customers shared pizzas with friends at Mother Bear’s Pizza, people also donated to the American Civil Liberties Union. The IU Feminist Student Association sponsored a dine-and-donate for the ACLU at Mother Bear’s Wednesday. FSA received $4 for every large pizza purchased with a printed coupon from both the east and west Mother Bear’s locations. The coupon applied to inside dining, delivery and carry-out. Junior Alexis Davis, who is the fundraising chair for FSA, said the group chose the ACLU for the dine-anddonate event because of the way the organization challenged President Trump’s executive order on immigration. The immigration ban, which barred people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States, is now on hold after a decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The ACLU has won court orders against the immigration ban in New York, Massachusetts and Maryland. The ACLU also received a record $24.1 million in donations in the weekend after Trump issued the immigration ban, according to the

ACLU’s website. “It was a great demonstration that the ACLU is going to fight the fight for equality, regardless of what equality might be defined as in certain situations,” Davis said. FSA’s objectives expand beyond women’s rights, IU junior and FSA director of social affairs Margaret Hoffman said. “Your identity is more than your gender,” Hoffman said. “You can’t separate things like race, class and ethnicity from gender.” FSA is focused on issues that cover all aspects of identity, she said.In addition to the immigration ban, Hoffman said she is concerned with the Trump administration’s approach to illegal immigration and reproductive freedom. Davis said the ACLU’s response to the immigration ban demonstrated it is not backing down. “We discussed how we were personally going to stand for equality no matter what, so to see a more powerful organization like the ACLU stand in that same place, we felt that was where we needed to put our support,” Davis said. Because FSA has limited influence as a campus organization, Davis said it needs to put its support behind organizations that can

help make a change. Dineand-donate events are an effective way to reach out to the IU and Bloomington communities, Davis said. “You’re not setting up a table outside Ballantine hoping that you catch a crowd of a hundred people leaving class,” Davis said. “You can appeal to the Bloomington community because anyone can find time in their day to come in and participate.” One of the reasons FSA likes to sponsor dine-anddonate events is because it appeals to college students

who have little to no income because they are also receiving food as they donate, Hoffman said. Ruthie Williamson, a Ph.D. candidate in music theory, said she specifically came to Mother Bear’s to donate to the ACLU. “I love what the ACLU is doing, and I love Mother Bear’s, so a chance to eat pizza and also donate to the ACLU is great,” Williamson said. At the time of publication, FSA had not yet counted how much money they had raised for the ACLU.

The controversy surrounding the image was such that Peruvian communists, who were known by the name Shining Path, were furious at the insult to someone they saw as a leader and icon, Greene said. And the militants were even more furious with Marquez for that artwork because it featured repeated images of imprisoned, female Shining Path supporters in the background, which seemed to further degrade their cause, Greene said. These repeated images, combined with the red lips given to Mao, created a further gender dynamic altering the perspective and creating more ambiguity even as the words “Viva el Maoismo” — “Long live Maoism” — gives another twist to the image, Greene said. “It was precisely its ambiguity, which made it dangerous,” he said. He continued by pointing out the consequences of artwork charged with political tones. Marquez, who is still alive and an artist in Peru, cannot visit the United States.

Clay said he doesn’t know Filipek well outside of his lab work, but he was surprised to see news of his arrest. He said he’s keeping in mind Filipek hasn’t been found guilty of anything, but he also knows the accusation is likely to have long-term consequences. “I saw it in the paper this morning, and that’s the first I heard about it,” Clay said. “I was shocked and disappointed and sorry for everybody involved.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 IU junior Walt Click, who directs undergraduate education for the Education Policy Student Association, said he recognizes the importance of public schools but understands why some areas have less productive schools than others. He studies law and public policy in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs and said he’d like to learn more on the subject of school vouchers before making judgements. Professor Ashlyn Nelson, an economist of education, led discussions about the federal government’s role in education and the linkage, or the necessity for absence of one, between data on student performance and teacher performance.

Studies have demonstrated how the grades given to schools did not line up with the the public’s perception of the school’s quality, she said. Nelson was asked to evaluate school grades in Indiana and was told there were too many B-grade schools. She said there were inconsistencies between the formula’s allocation of grades and the state policy for evaluating the same schools. In the discussion at the end of the event, Nelson said part of why educators are not consulted on research had to do with the politicization of schools of education on a state and national level.

IU opens season with four games in Arizona By Spencer Davis @spencer_davis16

IU baseball’s 2017 opening weekend is a busy one, as the Hoosiers will head out to Surprise, Arizona, to play four games in three days starting Friday. The Hoosiers will see a variety of competition from around the country and will take on Gonzaga and Oregon State twice each. IU Coach Chris Lemonis said it will be nice for his team to face actual opponents rather than playing intrasquad games. “Obviously we’re tired of playing each other,” Lemonis said. “We’re excited to get out to Arizona. We’ve set up our schedule to play some of the nation’s best and to really test us so our first couple weeks will be a good test of our ball club.” After a convincing 14-4 victory against Middle

Tennessee in last year’s season opener, IU dropped six consecutive games to dig itself into an early hole. To avoid a repeat of 2016’s early season woes, IU’s coaching staff has implemented a new team motto — “start to finish.” Junior outfielder Logan Sowers said the team will have to focus on not getting too high or low based on individual game results. “You always want to start off the season well and get your confidence up,” Sowers said. “Last year our first game we played really well, and then after that I don’t know if we got a false sense of confidence because we won by so much in that first game.” The winter weather has been uncharacteristically kind to the Hoosiers, as they have been able to practice outside more often than usual rather than being contained to the John Mellencamp Pavilion for offseason

practices. Senior outfielder Craig Dedelow sees the extra outside practice time has given IU a huge advantage. “This is my fourth year here, and it’s the most we’ve been outside in spring leading up to the season,” Dedelow said. “Especially for Logan and I and the rest of the outfield, being able to get reads off bats and it not being in Mellencamp and hitting the ceiling and it only being able to go so far, it has been a big part for us.” The Big Ten announced the results of its annual preseason poll Wednesday, as voted on by the conference’s coaches. IU is slated to finish fourth in the Big Ten on the heels of its 15-9 conference record last season. Maryland is projected to finish atop the 13 Big Ten baseball teams, followed by Michigan and Nebraska. Last season’s Big Ten Champion, the Minnesota Golden

Lemonis selected Dedelow, Sowers and sophomore infielder Luke Miller as the three Hoosier representatives on the Big Ten Baseball Preseason Honors List. The third-year head coach believes his team’s strength and conditioning training will factor into its success, both in Arizona and for the rest of the season. “When you come out to see us play we’ve got some physicality, we’ve got some athleticism and we have a lot of experience, too,” Lemonis said. “We are going to be able to put out a lineup with good depth and be able to do some different things together.”


Hoosiers wins 3-point battle in upset of Michigan Wolverines on Thursday, 72-61 By Jake Thomer @jake_the_thomer

To pull off the upset against No. 20 Michigan at home on Thursday night, IU Coach Teri Moren said she knew her team would have to shut down the Wolverines behind the arc. Michigan carried an NCAA-best 40.8 percent mark from 3-point range into the game. The Wolverines would not come close to hitting that mark in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, as the Hoosiers held them to just four-of-19 shooting from long range in a 72-61 IU win. Junior guard Tyra Buss said the energy and uptempo pace was a key for the Hoosier defense. IU’s guards were flying around the court all night. They dropped into the paint to help defend sixfoot-five Michigan sophomore center Hallie Thome and closed out quickly on 3-point attempts. “We were contesting them, so whenever they were shooting we were right there on the catch,” Buss said. “I thought we all did a really good job of that.” The Michigan guards, junior Katelynn Flaherty and freshman Kysre Gondrezick, came into the game making more than five threes per game between the two of them. Against the IU defense, the two made just one

shot from behind the arc in 13 attempts. Their struggles contributed to Michigan’s 21-percent mark from 3-point range in the game. Offensively, IU was able to break out of a shooting slump of its own by knocking down seven threes, the most since burying seven in a win against Purdue on Jan. 19. Six of IU’s makes from downtown came in the first half as Buss, junior forward Amanda Cahill and senior guard Karlee McBride made two each. Buss said the ball movement was key for IU’s first half shooting success. “We’re a really unselfish team, and we look for the

extra pass,” Buss said. “Coach told us the drive and kicks were going to be there.” McBride had made just three of her previous 18 3-point shot attempts coming into Thursday’s game but caught fire in the opening half. She sunk two threes and converted a pair of and-one plays after being fouled on made layups. “It’s really a lot of confidence,” McBride said. “My teammates really got me going, and once one of us goes, all of us go.” The win over the Wolverines marked the second straight strong defensive outing from the Hoosiers.

On Saturday, IU held Northwestern to just 38 points, the fewest points allowed by IU in a Big Ten game in more than 30 years. Moren said she and her team knew Flaherty, Thome and Gondrezick all had the ability to fill up the stat sheet. Stopping them and preventing runs of consecutive 3-pointers were key to getting the win. “It goes back to just our mindset defensively,” Moren said. “I thought we were really in tune — just like we were against Northwestern — to the things that we wanted to try to take away from them.”

In addition to the two chronic diseases, Steve suffers from adult-onset type 1 diabetes, which reacts to his other ailments and adds to the pain. The combination of the three diseases makes Steve one of the most distinct cases in the world, his doctor told him.

The ailments have hindered Steve’s otherwise successful life. He had a toe amputated as a result of gout arthritis, put his sport business career on hold for eight months and spent many nights in hospitals fighting for his life. Now, he felt responsible for his girls being placed with a different family.

Editors Dylan Moore and Zack Chambers



Examining social media’s dark side One of the first columns I ever wrote at the Indiana Daily Student was about Cuddlr, an app designed for strangers to meet up and cuddle. Back then I described it as “the perfect treasure map for rapists and kidnappers.” Stranger danger isn’t simply a funny looking man that approaches a third grader in a supermarket. Because of social media, strangers are everywhere, and most of us can easily say that we’re friends with a few on Facebook, or are followed by some on Twitter. But also, in my naïve sophomoric mind, I was joking. Throughout the column I made jabs at the app and said it was “designed to be nonspecific, gender-neutral, age-neglecting and non-psychopath-detecting.” I asked questions like, “What if the person you meet up to cuddle with smelled bad?” and explained that there was no scratch and sniff button. The IDS reported Thursday that four men, two of whom are IU students, were arrested on charges of child molestation. A 13-year-old girl met each man through an app called Whisper. Much like Cuddlr, this app prides itself on anonymity and uses people’s location to connect you with individuals in their area. Although I don’t fancy walking head-on into a child molester’s safe haven, I decided to download Whisper to see what it was like. Immediately upon opening it, a silent video pops up — “Read people’s minds,” it says. Then it goes on to explain who these “people” may be — friends, strangers, classmates, lovers, coworkers, neighbors, everyone. According to the Monroe County Sheriff ’s Office, “Whisper stores content posted for public viewing; however, once users start to chat with each other, that data is not public content, and Whisper does not keep a record of those conversations.” You’re asked to turn on your location to see what people are whispering. I clicked “Nearby” to see what people were posting in

Bloomington. Scrolling through, a lot of the posts were standard Tinder-esque messages. “Just wish I had a beautiful girl to spoil,” “Someone come hanky panky with meee,” “Netflix and chill with your boy?” Some users indicated what gender and age they were — “M21 haven’t had a sleepover in a while.” Most importantly, most of the messages were not safe for work and definitely not safe for the eyes of a 13-year-old. A user named “some girl” posted, “Any IU Bloomington guy wanna talk? I’m 16 I’m just so done with guys in my grade actin like they 10 it ain’t gon take me anywhere in life just will hold me back.” Now before you jump the gun, it’s not “some girl’s” fault for posting this. We grow up watching shows like “16 and Pregnant,” and we don’t blink an eye when we see 16 year-old Kylie Jenner date 24 year-old Tyga. It’s society’s fault. It’s her parents’ as well for letting her have access to an app like this. “Totally know a guy that got arrested for hooking up with a minor on here,” followed by three emojis — the face with tears of joy. Someone asked this individual, “Were you the minor?” and Mille, the user that initially posted, replied, “Nope, I’m not that stupid.” BuzzFeed published a piece in 2014 that talked about how Whisper allows survivors of sexual assault to remain anonymous and confess things ranging from childhood abuse to workplace misconduct. Obviously they didn’t know a 13-year-old girl would be molested by app users two-and-a-half years later, but the imminent dangers of anonymous digital communities are oftentimes overlooked. All social networking apps come with positive and negative sides but there comes a point in time when you have to ask whether an app like Whisper is doing more harm than good.


Follow the coaching money Coaches of men’s football and basketball are paid too much Whether it be on the national platform or on the college level, select sports coaches do have a hefty salary. Unfortunately, universities pay the coaches of just a few sports disproportionately high. IU’s Tom Crean makes an annual salary of $600 thousand. If we include all benefits and perks included with his job, Crean earns closer to $3 million. According to USA Today’s calculation of coach salaries, that makes him the eighth-highest paid college basketball coach in the nation. The Editorial Board wanted to find out if a large salary really reflects a coach’s ability. The coaches getting paid the most do have fantastic teams to back up the idea of paying them a high amount, but it’s a gross amount compared to other sports.

Compared to coaches like John Calipari of Kentucky and Mike Krzyzewski of Duke, who respectively make $6 million and $7 million annually, one may say the salary does reflect coaching ability. The salaries of football coaches are just as hefty. Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh makes $9 million annually. IU’s former head coach Kevin Wilson was the 50th-highest paid coach in the nation, but he was still making $2 million. In 2014, when Chris Lemonis was introduced as the head coach of baseball at Indiana University, the Director of Athletics Fred Glass released a statement saying Lemonis would start at a salary of $250,000 a year. When justifying the salary, he said, “I think that’s reflective of our continuing commitment to providing the resources necessary to keep

IU baseball at the top of the heap.” At the time, Lemonis was the second-highest paid baseball coach in the Big Ten. Women’s basketball coach Teri Moren makes $300,000 annually. Last year, Moren was named Big Ten Coach of the Year for her phenomenal coaching. Looking at all of these statistics, the Editorial Board noticed quite the margin between sports and gender. We originally wanted to suggest a salary cap for coaches so the paychecks wouldn’t be so marginally different but discovered that it would be illegal to do so. The first section of the Sherman Act prevents the NCAA from capping coach salaries because the teams are not nonprofit, like the NFL. Of course, more goes into the salary than just the streaks

and reputation of the teams. When you Google reasons to go to IU, there are several lists done by blogs or local news sites telling prospective students why they should choose IU. The first thing you see when you click on the first article is a picture of the IU men’s basketball team beating Purdue’s team. Other websites listed options like academics, social life and greek life as well, but sports and school spirit were consistently on these lists. Having a great team draws students to a college and thus brings in money for the college so that they are able to hand out the big paychecks. We want to reward coaches for doing a great job when they lead our teams to success, but we want to see coaches of less popular sports to get a similar recognition.


A corporate tax cut will help Americans Ben Franklin told us the only two things we can’t avoid are death and taxes. While we all complain about taxes, a good majority of us understand taxes have a purpose. Looking at the upcoming administration, I’m particularly interested in how President Trump and the Republican Congress will address the tax code. For me, the best aspect of Trump’s proposed tax code is lowering the corporate tax rate. Lowering the corporate tax rate in the United States will create an incentive for companies to stay in the U.S. and encourage foreign companies to move to the U.S. As it stands, the U.S. has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world at 35 percent. This has led to many corporations’, including Apple, Google and Microsoft, having subsidiaries in other locations to avoid paying the tax rates. While the taxes provide revenue into the tax system, according to some economists and corporations having the taxes causes companies to leave the United State to avoid the tax overhead. Trump agrees with these conditions, and one of the platforms of his campaign and of his White House is lowering the corporate tax rate on American companies. While the decrease in revenue is a very pressing concern, there is a trend of American companies leaving the United States to set up headquarters in other

countries such as Switzerland, South Korea and Singapore. By lowering the corporate tax rate, there is a greater incentive for these companies to stay in the United States. This has caused many economists to suggest in order to become competitive again, the U.S. should lower their tax rate on corporations. While some sources say that President Trump’s suggested 15 percent is too much of a cut at this moment, many publications support this tax cut. I understand that lowering taxes on corporations isn’t always a popular move. However, there is a pressing concern of corporations leaving the U.S., and as much as we don’t have to like it, companies are not required to always have their headquarters in the country they were founded in. Corporations are here to make a profit, and if moving to another country allows a corporation to become more profitable, it is understandable why these corporations would go overseas. Lowering the corporate tax rate would bring more businesses back to the U.S. It could allow the $2 trillion dollars kept abroad by American companies to come back to the U.S. and could help grow the companies domestically. While I wish I was getting a personal tax cut too, I support this plan.


DeVos will highlight a broken education system After billionaire Betsy DeVos assumed office as secretary of education Feb. 7, many parents jumped on social media threatening to pull their children out of public school. These angry moms and dads say they would rather homeschool their children than send them through a DeVos-run system. With a little bit of luck, DeVos will mismanage the bureaucratic Department of Education so badly that it shrinks. Currently we have a DOE that is too large, too standardized and far too expensive. Before anyone jumps on me for wanting to decrease public education funding, I want to state that I am a product of public school. I attend one currently. In fact, I ventured into private school for two years of high school and detested it. However, my personal

experiences aside, we face an education system that is spending more and more on children each year without seeing any rise in test scores or overall aptitude. In 1984, federal spending per student was $165. In 2014, it was $816. During this same time frame, National Assessment of Educational Progress tests for 17-year-olds showed lackluster results. Math scores increased by a measly eight points on the 500-point NAEP test scale, and reading scores dropped by two points. Yes, you read that correctly. We got worse at reading while spending 117 percent more per student adjusted for inflation. Enter DeVos, a woman who attended private schools her entire life. She seems entirely out of touch with the needs of public school systems, opting instead to

expand voucher programs to private schools – sometimes for-profit private schools. She’s even in favor of the common core, a controversial, nationwide set of academic expectations for high school students. We don’t need a blanket curriculum set by the federal government that tells all schools in America the bare minimum their students can regurgitate on a test to get by. Standards should be set at the state level, and states should find the best way to make an education system they can be proud of. DeVos and other common core supporters are simply setting a bar for how mediocre students across the entire country can be. We already have a track record of inefficiency with the DOE, and now its leader is trying to minimize the efficacy of our existing public system.

Dylan Moore is a sophomore in business and English.

Americans’ hate for DeVos will shed light on the $40.8 billion public education system’s drain on resources. Americans need to realize that throwing more money and more federal rules at the public school system won’t make it better. It hasn’t worked in the past, and I don’t know why federal bureaucrats insist that cash and regulation are the saviors of bad schools. I’m overjoyed that Betsy DeVos is our new secretary of education. People hate her, she has no educational experience and she never once attended public school. She can only serve to expose the system for what it already is – an overgrown waste of time and money.

Bluebird welcomes LA band


The Record Company, a rock ‘n’ roll group based in Los Angeles, will perform Feb. 25 at the Bluebird Nightclub. By Sanya Ali | @siali13

The Record Company will headline a show at the Bluebird Nightclub Feb. 25 and perform alongside Jamestown Revival and Smooth Hound Smith. Doors open for the show at 7 p.m. and this will be the headliner’s first show in Bloomington. The Record Company is signed with Concord Music Group and is made up of Chris Vos on guitar, lead vocals and harmonica; Alex Stiff on bass, guitar and vocals; and Marc Cazorla on drums, piano and vocals. “This will be our group’s first time in Bloomington, and we are looking forward to seeing the city,” Vos said. “Playing

new places and meeting new people is what it’s all about. That’s the best part of being on the road. You never forget your first time in a new place.” Vos said he moved from Milwaukee to Los Angeles eight years ago. Music had always been a part of his life, and he said he always knew he wanted to start a band when he moved out west. “I have loved music my whole life, I can never remember it not being the center of what caught my attention,” Vos said. “I just wanted to play it all the time, and I realized that meant I would have to go out and play as often as I could.” Los Angeles’ size proved one of the greatest challenges in starting a new group, and Vos said his wife, Valerie,

suggested he get on Craigslist to seek out potential band mates. “I thought that was not the greatest idea,” Vos said. “Well, I was wrong. When I put up the ad, it caught the eye of our bass player, Alex. We struck up a friendship and started hanging out and listening to records on Fridays.” One night, listening to records, Vos said the two had an epiphany that led to the formation of their group. “One night we listened to a record called ‘Hooker ‘N Heat,’ a John Lee Hooker record recorded live with the band Canned Heat,” Vos said. “It was so raw and inspiring that Alex, our drummer Marc and myself just decided to hang some microphones up and record. We got together

THE RECORD COMPANY Tickets $20 7 p.m. Feb. 25, the Bluebird the next day, jammed and recorded it. We formed right then and there.” Playing offers the opportunity to connect temporarily, and is a beautiful experience because it is fleeting, Vos said. “You never know how many times you are going to get to play or listen in your life, so you may as well play as hard as you can and have a good time doing it,” Vos said. “Performing makes all other aspects of life disappear for the briefest of moments, allowing you to exist outside your normal cares and just focus on the experience of that moment you are playing.”

‘Remixed’ videotage hits campus By Sanya Ali | @siali13

The “China Remixed” initiative by the Arts and Humanities Council introduced a video project experience, by visiting video artist Isaac Leung, this month. The process of compilation for the video montage, or “videotage”, “Remixing China through Video Art” began Feb. 1 and ended Feb. 14, and Leung spoke Feb. 15 about the project in a curatorial talk. “This is the first time I have done a project in public screens on a campus and we have a specific audience — students and faculty — who are from diverse places,” Leung said. “Including students from China, Hong Kong and Singapore, it’s interesting to see how different communities react to complex notions of Chinese news.” The project, which was already established as an art form in Hong Kong, came to Bloomington when Media School associate professor Stephanie De Boer went to China last year and discussed the idea with Leung. Arthur Liou, IU student in the School of Art and Design, acted as artistic consultant for the film-based project. De Boer, also a producer on the Bloomington project, was familiar with Leung’s

work with Videotage in Hong Kong. “I came to Isaac with the idea of producing a dialogic exhibition of video art — one that contains multiple perspectives and a multitude of differently located stories, and thus one that provokes questions concerning what Chinese video art might be,” De Boer said. The collection of montages, an international collaborative exchange of video art from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mainland China and beyond, will be broadcast across campus through March 10 in locations such as Franklin Hall, the Scholars Commons and the IMU Starbucks. There is an interesting juxtaposition between the perspectives from mainland China and some of the other locations from which artists contributed their video projects, Leung said. “For example, in Mainland China, artists are concerned about very big topics such as cultural evolution or economic reform,” Leung said. “In Hong Kong or Taiwan, artists take a more personal approach, for example, with personal stories about families, which leads to much bigger kind of questions or critical issues about Chinese culture.” Leung said he hopes the videotages playing on the

Students should read books for personal interest in college When I was younger and reading regularly, I would always force myself to finish whatever book I was currently reading, even if I wasn’t enjoying it. To me, giving up on a book was a sin, a sign of weakness. Part of the joy of reading for me was the challenge of it. I thought finishing books that were either difficult to read or that I found boring would make me a better reader. I would argue that it most likely did. Challenging myself made me not only a better reader in terms of schoolwork, but it also made me a better writer. However, there shouldn’t be any shame in admitting a book is too difficult or challenging to finish. Even those who frequently finish books they start have probably given up on a book at one time or another. It also might not necessarily be that a book is too difficult to finish. There are plenty of badly written or just plain boring books that even the most avid readers struggle to get through. It’s fine to take an especially long or challenging book at a slower pace than an easy read. During my freshmen year of college, it took me nearly an entire semester to read one of the books in the “Game of Thrones” series. It wasn’t that I wasn’t enjoying the book, it was just ridiculously long and contained a good deal of backstory instead of actual plot. I prided myself on not giving up on the book even though it was more time-consuming than other reads. Although finishing books is generally a good

thing, adults shouldn’t waste their time reading things they don’t enjoy. There are so many things to do, so many other responsibilities and distractions, and reading shouldn’t be considered a chore. This is especially true for college students, since they usually have hours of laborious reading to do for their classes. If they’re reading for fun there’s no need to struggle too much if they can’t get into a book. According to an article from Smithsonian Magazine, 27 percent of adults in the U.S. did not read a single book in 2015. I probably read maybe two or three that year. I also most likely did abandon at least one book that I started. Not everyone needs to be an avid reader, and it’s okay to stop reading a book if it’s too difficult to get into. However, I also know that sometimes it’s easy to make the excuse that there isn’t enough time for reading. Yes, reading takes some effort, but it’s a great form of entertainment if people give it time. I remember being disheartened in high school whenever my peers would say, “I don’t like to read. It’s boring,” partially because I was a huge nerd but also because I knew those people had never seriously given reading a chance. Reading outside of class should be fun, not forced, but as I’m learning this semester all it takes is a little extra effort to find books I truly enjoy.


New York Fashion Week presents haute couture fashions COURTESY PHOTO

Isaac Leung, curator of the “Remixing China Through Video Art,” project, which is viewable on screens across campus through March 10 and features video art from artists across mainland China, Taiwan, the diaspora and beyond.

screens will help to facilitate public dialogue on the complex issues at play for both Chinese in China and across diaspora communities. “It’s kinds of interesting to subvert the spatial formality, where the screens are usually only showing news and marketing materials of the University,” Leung said. “By interacting or seeing these complex moving images, that would create a new experience for the students.” De Boer said the idea behind putting the project on multiple screens around campus was multi-faceted. One benefit to displaying the videos in this way is that students and faculty would be interacting with these spaces

on a daily basis. “On the other hand, I’m very interested in how we can shift and transform our increasingly screened environments,” De Boer said. “On our campus, the default mode for public screen use is to convey information.” De Boer said she hopes this is the beginning of a prolonged partnership. “As for Isaac himself, I’m looking forward to seeing how our collaboration can continue into the future, what becomes of this exhibition and how it might be a platform for future endeavors,” De Boer said. “I think that this is the first time for Isaac to curate an exhibition for a campus space, so this is interesting.”

Alert everyone you know because the most wonderful time of the year is here. New York Fashion Week kicked off last Thursday and fear of missing out is real, unless of course your name in Anna Wintour. Wintour, the editor-inchief of Vogue, seems to have certainly been enjoying her week so far while sitting front row at Calvin Klein. Rag & Bone, the label that closed Thursday’s shows, was one of the top names to kick off the glamorous week. My favorites – go-to brands Kate Spade and Tory Burch – showcased their collections this week as well. Burch’s fall 2017 readyto-wear collection featured an A-list model cast, from the likes of Victoria’s Secret bombshells Taylor Hill, Sara Sampaio and Romee Strijd. Vogue explains how Burch looked to Katherine Hepburn’s character, Tracy Lord, in “The Philadelphia Story” as inspiration for Burch’s latest collection. Burch grew up in Pennsylvania and shared an Instagram of her childhood home days leading up to the show, “It’s about going back to my roots and doing a take on something familiar,” Burch said to the magazine after the show. Vogue also highlighted that the necklaces worn in the show were inspired by Burch’s own Philadelphia story and are an ode to her father’s cigarette lighter. Vogue recognizes that on many of the classic white pieces — stiff collared shirt, jumpsuit and structured trench coat — we see a scrolling gold “TB” logo stitched into the garments. This is a more elegant form of branding, apart from the classic double T’s we usually see on her purses and famous Reva ballet flats.

Kate Spade has reaffirmed herself as the love of my life with her girly and whimsical new fall 2017 ready-to-wear designs. The presentation took place on the second floor of the dark and sultry, red Russian tea room. Deborah Lloyd, the chief creative officer for Kate Spade attributed her inspiration to famous flapper Louise Brooks and entertainer Josephine Baker, she told Vogue. On the third floor, Lloyd showcased her Moroccanthemed spring 2017 collection that she debuted last September. Attendees of this show had the opportunity to view the newest collections for 2017 in one place, which I think was genius. Pieces and styles to note from the Kate Spade fall collection were the signature florals, done in Slovak style. The fuzzy cheetah print jacket paired with a dark green leather skirt gave Kate Spade fans their new favorite piece that they did not know they were missing. The red cape featuring floral embroidery and classic black buttons is one of the most chic and stylish garments that I have seen from Kate Spade in a while — translation: I must have it immediately. Another collection that has left me in awe was Zac Posen’s fall 2017 ready-towear collection, featuring an array of exquisite gowns. The draping that is shown in his designs adds an element of elegance and grace. As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we have seen impeccable collections across the board. Designers have stepped up their games and have shown the best of the best.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 That night Steve cried. Foster parents don’t usually get that type of affirmation, he said. Foster children are constantly trying to sell themselves as good and adoptable that the relationship doesn’t progress that quickly. But the Winfrees weren’t two ordinary foster parents, and the girls weren’t ordinary foster kids. The girls were strong, and the Winfrees were foster parents by choice. They said they wanted to help children that needed a home. That’s what made it so difficult when Steve and Heather chose not to adopt them. “They’ve been in the system for so long,” Steve said. “They understand. They ask questions. It’s so hard to say no to a child that asks if you’re going to be their dad. Then they ask why. No training can prepare you to answer the why.” Saying goodbye without knowing whether they’d see them again was the hardest part, Heather said. It was worse than grieving a death. Nearly two months after their separation, it’s still a hard pill to swallow, but it’s easier knowing the girls’ new parents are good people, Heather said. Their new parents allowed the birthday dinner to happen, and they make an effort to maintain a relationship between the Winfrees and the girls. However, it’s not the same. The girls will always be their children. “They told us we’d

always be mommy and daddy to them,” Steve said. “And that their new parents were just mom and dad. It’s hard to hear that and then watch them get into someone else’s car.” * * * Mike DeBord was there for all of this — not in person, but in support. The new IU offensive coordinator was in his second season at Tennessee at the same position when Steve tweeted some inspiration to the Volunteers’ coach.

Horoscope Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is an 8 — Make a career move. An opportunity’s ripe. Talk is cheap; keep quiet and show what you can do. Ignore critics and risky business. Step closer to a dream. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is an 8 — Attend to shared finances. Tally up totals and reconcile accounts. Share tasks with your partner. Roll with any obstacles. Let family know if plans change.

“@UTCoachDeBo I faced 60% chance of death during sepsis shock & organ failure & I WON. Tell the team anything can happen w/ faith. I’m proof,” Steve tweeted. DeBord saw that tweet and subsequent tweets from Steve later on and decided to reach out to him through direct message to show Steve support. That sparked a relationship between the die-hard Tennessee football fan and the coach. Steve continued to tweet at the coach and at Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs

and chores. Financial misunderstandings spark easily; avoid financial discussion. Clean up a mess.

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 9 — Collaboration flowers wordlessly. Keep your side of the bargain, and things work out. Build toward long-term goals. Ignore rumors or gossip. Patiently clarify miscommunications. Share results. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 9 — Get physically involved in a project. Build some sweat equity. Work with someone who has impressive


skills. Discuss future options. Your efforts are paying off. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 7 — Relax and enjoy entertaining pursuits with someone interesting. Share perspectives. Practice arts, skills and talents. Play games. Quick action wins a prize. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 7 — Home and family require more attention. Catch up on household maintenance



as a positive model of success, and hoped to inspire the team as a whole. Dobbs and DeBord messaged Steve through all the struggles— through his amputation in September, through his first dialysis in November, through the girls’ departure in December. “He was just being very supportive and positive in a place that can breed a lot of negativity,” DeBord said about Steve. “I saw what he was going through and decided to reach out. It’s humbling to know I was supportive for someone like him.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is an 8 — Write and express your story. Reveal and then abandon a preconception. Stand up for yourself. Refuse to be bullied or disrespected. Share with heart and dignity. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 9 — Keep generating income; it’s good for your morale and bookkeeping. Cajole someone into paying up. Follow through on what you said. You can accomplish


Heather will always remember the excitement Steve felt when DeBord and Dobbs would tweet at him and wish him well. Any supporter of her husband is a friend of hers, she said. While still awaiting a kidney transplant and gritting his teeth through the pain of gout attacks, Steve said he wouldn’t want to change his life at all. Missing out on his college basketball career introduced him to Heather in graduate school at Middle Tennessee State University. She’s one of the biggest

great things. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 9 — Wear your super suit. It’s time for action, not words. You’re especially powerful; don’t run over anyone. Use finesse rather than force. Repair something you’ve long tolerated. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 6 — Hide away somewhere peaceful and crank the tunes. You can get a lot done privately. Review the past, as you lay foundations for what’s next. Creativity percolates.

Difficulty Rating: How to play: Fill in the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 grid contains the digits 1 through 9, without repeating a number in any one row, column or 3x3 grid.

reasons why he still fights, he said. The chronic disease fighter will represent the 31 million Americans that suffer from chronic kidney disease when he travels to Washington, D.C., on March 8 to speak to Congress and raise awareness. Even with his plans ahead, Steve said he still wants to meet DeBord in person and maybe see a game in Bloomington. “I just want to shake his hand,” Steve said. “And let him know what his support has done for me.”
