Simmie Cobbs Jr. arrested Saturday From IDS Reports

Redshirt junior Simmie Cobbs Jr. was arrested Saturday at Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Ind., according to a statement released Sunday by the Hamilton County Sheriff ’s Office. The IU wide receiver was charged with resisting law enforcement and refusal to identify, class A and B misdemeanors respectively. Cobbs became confrontational with security at a concert Saturday, refused a breathalyzer test and refused to identify himself, according to the statement. He was released Sunday afternoon after a pre-trial screening assesment. “We will continue to gather facts, monitor the legal process and take action as the evolving situation warrants,” IU Athletics said in a statement in response to Cobbs’ arrest. Cobbs ranked third in the Big Ten in touchdowns in the 2015 season. He was suspended for last season’s opening game along with five other football players for “not living up to their responsibilities to the program at different times since the conclusion of the 2015 season,” the IU football program said in a statement at the time. The 6-foot-5 wide receiver missed the remainder of the year after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in IU’s second game.

IU announced Shonda Stanton as the new softball coach on June 10, 2017. She won 560 games in 18 seasons as the coach of Marshall University.

The next pitch New head coach Shonda Stanton discusses the future of the IU softball program By Austin Ghirardelli | @a_ghirardelli

IU softball needed to make a coaching change after former head coach Michelle Gardner resigned from the program on May 24. Senior Associate Athletic Director Scott Joraanstad led the search party for a replacement after the team finished the year with a 23-31 overall record. On June 10, the Hoosiers found their new head coach. Shonda Stanton comes to IU after spending 18 seasons as head coach of the Marshall University Thundering Herd. Stanton left after leading the Herd to a 42-12 record and a conference USA regular season title last season. Stanton was faced with a tough decision after becoming the most winningest coach in Marshall history with 560 career wins. Even after recording 12 30-win seasons, the 2017 C-USA Coach of the Year said she wanted more. Playing in the Big Ten and the tradition of excellence are just a few of the reasons she made the move. “When IU became open, I got a phone call and everything just felt right,” Stanton said. “I was so impressed with Fred Glass (IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics) and the

entire senior staff. This community is also somewhere I could see raising my family.” The North Olmsted, Ohio native started her coaching career as a graduate assistant at Ashland University, a mid-sized private school in Ashland, Ohio. “I worked for three head coaches,” Stanton said. “I got to coach women’s basketball, softball and volleyball and I think that’s what gave me the opportunity to be a head coach at 24 at IUPUI. It was the first year they were a Division I and we had inherited a team that only won eight games the prior year. We went on to win 27 games and had flipped the culture pretty quick.” Stanton only spent one year in Indianapolis before moving on to Marshall where she was able to build a sustainable culture and a winning program. “Culture is over time,” Stanton said. “How you take care of your culture is taking care of your environment. We had one philosophy that we lived by every day and that’s walking in excellence and how you win the day. We never had to focus on the wins and losses because the results would take care of themselves.” Stanton said she would like to continue that culture here


The Hoosiers play Iowa on Saturday, March 25 at Andy Mohr Field. IU ended last season with a 23-31 overall record.

in Bloomington. The Hoosiers have had their fair share of struggles in the past few seasons and Stanton is aiming to change that just like she flipped the script at IUPUI. “I believe Indiana is a sleeping giant,” Stanton said. “I came here because we do want to be a nationally recognized program academically and athletically. Our young women are going to walk in excellence on the ballfield, in the classroom and in the community. We have a blueprint that works, I have a vision for these women and I have an incredible staff who is going to work to put that vision in place.”

Academics have always been important to coach Stanton’s teams. At Marshall, her team went 36 consecutive semesters with a 3.0 GPA or better. Stanton said her type of players need to excel as both students and athletes. “The person is always greater than the player so we are also looking for the intangibles,” Stanton said. “We are looking for bright and driven young women. On the softball side of things, we are looking for athletes to fit an up-tempo system. They need to have a fast play style and be SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 3

Comedy and romance have collided all July at the Wells-Metz Theatre. Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” are being performed in IU Summer Theatre, and they’re being produced by the same cast and crew. The back to back shows have been in rotation since July 7, and will continue Tuesday July 18 through Sunday July 23. When considered back to back, the plays offer surprising parallels, actress and professor Jenny McKnight said. “Watching them is a treat and a fantastic way to learn more about these worlds and the many ways in which the stories and characters still delight modern audiences,” she said. “I hope people come see both plays.” Undergraduates and professional actors were brought together to rehearse and prepare two audienceready productions in only three weeks. “It’s great training for our students,” Department of Theatre and Drama chair and director of “Love’s Labour’s Lost” Jonathan Michaelsen said. “Audiences can come see one show, then come another night and see a completely different set, different costumes, but the same actors doing different roles.” “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” one of Shakespeare’s earlier comedies, follows a king and his friends as they swear off the company of women to focus on studying until a princess and her ladies challenge their intentions. It’s a great commentary on how people can’t be totally committed to one thing, Michaelsen said. “These guys set out to do this noble thing, create an ivory tower and study for three years, and the humanSEE THEATER, PAGE 3

15 indicted in Medicaid fraud investigations From IDS Reports

Indiana’s Office of the Attorney General helped uncover more than $1 million in Medicaid fraud, leading to the indictment of 15 people and two companies on various charges as part of the largest healthcare fraud takedown in U.S. history, it was announced on Thursday. The Office of the Indiana Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit worked with the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Kentucky Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to complete seven investigations, according to a press release from the office of the attorney general. The FBI, DEA and IRS were also involved. The investigations targeted illegal practices such as false and fraudulent billing, distributing and prescribing controlled substances without legitimate medical purposes and money laundering. “Medicaid fraud is not a victimless crime,” Curtis Hill, the attorney general, said in the press release. “When licensed professionals and organizations target those who rely on Medicaid, they’re also putting taxpayers on the hook. These actions truly impact all of us. The culmination of these investigations is extremely rewarding for the investigators and lawyers in our Medicaid Fraud Control Unit who work tirelessly to bring these offenders to justice. I applaud their efforts.” Raymond E. Massengill, who operated Patient Access Transportation in Marion and Johnson Counties, was charged with health care fraud, according to the press

release. Ronald Sheppard, a chiropractor who owned and operated Castleton Integrative Health in Indianapolis, was indicted on charges of conspiracy to violate the anti-kickback statute and money laundering, according to the press release. The anti-kickback statute prohibits a person from paying or receiving anything of value as an incentive to refer patients of federal health care programs. Chiropractor Mitchel Stukey and Karen Poeling of Med 1st in Evansville were charged with five counts of healthcare fraud, conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act and conspiracy to commit money laundering. An estimated $490,000 in losses to the Indiana Medicaid program resulted from Stukey and Poeling’s activities, according to the press release. The Stukey and Poeling investigation lasted five years and involved multiple agencies, including the DEA. Another $449,000 in losses to the Indiana Medicaid program is estimated for the alleged activities of two employees at Sunshine Transportation in Greentown. Shawn and Amanda McNew were charged with falsifying trips that were never taken and violation of the anti-kickback statute, according to the press release. Three individuals and one business were indicted on 21 charges at Physicians Primary Care PLLC in Jeffersonville for distributing and prescribing controlled substances without legitimate medical SEE MEDICAID, PAGE 3

Roadwork rework Monroe County granted $10.5 million for roads and bridges From IDS reports

Monroe County will receive nearly $10.5 million in funding as part of the Indiana’s Next Level Roads initiative. Governor Eric Holcomb and Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Joe McGuinness announced a $4.7 billion, five-year plan for spending on Indiana roads and bridges on Thursday, according to a press release from the governor’s office. The initiative will resurface approximately 10,000 lane miles of pavement and repair 1,300 bridges. Funding will also be directed toward the I-69 project. The five-year plan, which contained construction plans for preserving existing roads and bridges, finishing current projects and investing in Indiana’s transportation system, will be part of a longer 20year plan. Monroe County will receive just over $1 million in its first year of funding, beginning in 2018. The county will use the funding to target 79 lane miles and 2 bridges. Construction projects on State Roads 37, 45 and 46 will run from 2018 to 2020. Morgan County, which contains part of Section 5 of the I-69 project, will receive $287 million as part of the initiative, according to the press release. I-69 Section 5, which contains 21 miles of State Road 37 from Bloomington to Martinsville, will be addressed by the new initiative. $56,300,000 will be allocated to upgrade State Road 37 to interstate standards in Morgan County in 2018, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation website. Another $68,700,000 will be allocated in 2019 to upgrade State Road 37 to I-69. I-69 Section 5 was taken over by INDOT in June after repeat delays in its completion. “Over the past couple of years, our area of the state has dealt with a significant amount of road construction,” Holcomb said in the press release. “These

projects are part of an overall effort to improve safety on our highly traveled roads, prevent everyday wear and tear on vehicles, and promote economic growth. Through the historic investment made by the General Assembly this year, Morgan and Monroe counties will be receiving nearly $300 million combined to invest even further in our local infrastructure over the next five years. This funding will go toward projects along I-69, resurfacing crumbling roadways and rehabilitating local bridges.” After the five-year plan concludes, the initiative will provide Indiana cities, towns and counties $342 million annually to continue work on local road projects. “Our transportation network of roads and bridges plays a major part in Indiana’s success story both now and in the future,” Holcomb said in the press release. “With a fully-funded plan in place for the next 20 years, Hoosiers can rest assured that Indiana will remain the Crossroads of America for generations to come. I thank our lawmakers for their committed leadership to make this possible, and I commend INDOT for working hard to identify key projects so that we could be ready to roll with this fiveyear plan so quickly.” The initiative will be funded by a bipartisan bill recently passed by the Indiana General Assembly 2017 session, HEA 1002. The bill provides for long-term infrastructure funding through a 10 cent per gallon increase on the gas tax. The tax increase went into effect July 1. The tax can be increased annually, but is limited to a $.01 each year, according to the HEA 1002 bill. Registration fees at the BMV will also increase to $15 for standard vehicles, $50 for hybrid vehicles and $150 for electric vehicles. After 2022, 60 percent of the revenue will go towards state projects, and 40 percent will go to local projects. The funding will also allow INDOT to study the possibility of tolling interstates in the future. Emily Eckelbarger


Study looks at ADHD meds, drug use EPA rule filters mercury from sewer systems

From IDS reports

An IU study has linked medication used to treat attention deficient hyperactivity disorder to lower risk for substance use problems in adults and adolescents with ADHD. The study, which was based on a sample of nearly three million people, found that the risk for substance use problems was 35 percent lower in men and 31 percent lower in women during periods of medication, according to an IU Newsroom press release. The study’s results were published in the June edition of the American Journal of Psychiatry. “This study contributes to growing evidence that ADHD medication is linked to lower risk for many types of harmful behavior, including substance abuse,” said Patrick D. Quinn, a postdoctoral researcher in the

Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences who led the study, in the press release. “The results also highlight the importance of careful diagnosis and compliance with treatment.” The study used anonymous health care data from 146 million Americans who had employer-based health insurance from 2005 to 2014. Researchers looked for people with ADHD whose records included periods with and without ADHD medication use. They then searched for records of visits to the emergency room due to drug or alcohol use. T he study’s results come from calculating the likelihood of a person’s visit to the emergency room falling in a period of ADHD medication use or a period of non-use. About 57 percent of the three million people with ADHD in the study experienced periods with and

without ADHD medication use. Two percent of the study’s database went to the emergency room for substance abuse, according to the press release. “While concerns about prescribing medications to treat ADHD that have the potential for abuse are understandable, this study provides further evidence

that the use of these medications is not associated with increased risk of substance use problems in adolescence or adulthood,” Quinn said. “Rather, this and other recent studies find that the risk of such problems is lower during and after periods of use of these medications.” Emily Eckelbarger

Patrick Shoulders reelected as IU Trustee From IDS reports

Patrick A. Shoulders was reelected to a sixth term on the IU Board of Trustees. IU alumni cast 5,734 votes for Shoulders in the June election for the Trustee Patrick position, according to an Shoulders IU Newsroom press release. Shoulders has a law degree from the IU McKinney School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from IU Bloomington. Prior to his position on the Board of Trustees, he was the national chair of the

IU Alumni Association in 2000. He is also a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and is a partner with the law firm Ziemer, Stayman, Weitzel and Shoulders in Evansville, according to the press release. Shoulders was originally appointed to the Board of Trustees in 2002 by then Governor Frank O’Bannon. He has been elected by alumni in 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2014. “I am honored that our alumni have again chosen me to represent them,” Shoulders said in the press release. “Indiana University has a dedicated, highly accomplished board, and it is an honor to be part of it.

I’m especially pleased that I will be on the board for the opening of the new medical education campus in downtown Evansville and for the celebration of the university’s 200th anniversary in 2020.” Craig D. Wells was the runner-up to Shoulders with 3,013 votes, followed by Dennis Elliott with 1,521 votes, according to the press release. “Trustee Shoulders has compiled a remarkable record of service and dedication to Indiana University,” IU President Michael A. McRobbie said. “His passion and loyalty have been invaluable as the university has strengthened its commitment to excellence and

its growing value to the state of Indiana. I am delighted that he will continue to serve as the university’s bicentennial approaches.” Three of the nine IU trustees are elected by alumni. The other two alumnielected trustees are Philip N. Eskew and MaryEllen Kiley Bishop. The other six trustees, who are appointed by the governor, are Harry L. Gonso, Michael J. Mirro, W. Quinn Buckner, James T. Morris and Melanie S. Walker. Zachary Arnold serves as the student trustee, according to the press release.

A new Environmental Protection Agency rule will prevent mercury discharge from dental offices from entering into municipal sewer systems. After July 14, dental offices that place or remove dental amalgam, the material used in cavity fillings, must install amalgam separators, according to a City of Bloomington press release. The rule, published on June 14, was part of the EPA’s General Pretreatment Regulations. Compliance with the rule is expected to reduce mercury discharge by 5.1 tons. Other metals are expected to be reduced by 5.3 tons, according to the EPA’s website. Existing dental offices have until July 14, 2020 to comply with the new rule,

while new dental offices must comply with it immediately. Dental offices are the main source of mercury discharges to publicly owned treatment works. Approximately 103,000 dental offices use amalgam and most of these offices send their wastewater to publicly owned treatment works, according to the EPA’s website. Other metals, such as silver and tin, will also be captured in amalgam separators, preventing the metals from filtering into the environment. Once mercury is captured by a separator, it can be recycled. The City of Bloomington Utilities is working with local dental offices to ensure dental offices are aware of the new rule and are incompliance with it. Emily Eckelbarger

You can be a gazelle or a lion. A gazelle kind of gets up and trots along pretty quick, but we want to be a lion. We really want to pounce on things. As athletes, that’s the approach we are going to take.” Competing in the Big Ten is never easy due to the amount of talented and resourceful schools that inhabit the conference. Stanton said she is confident that her goals here at IU can be reached.

“I would have never left the situation I had if I didn’t believe in IU softball, the people here and my student athletes that I’m going to coach,” Stanton said. “I believe in our ability as coaches to be leaders of these young women. You want to go from a great situation to the best situation possible and for me professionally, this was the best situation and I’m excited to be the leader here of IU softball.” Stanton’s first move as head coach was to get into contact with her current players. She said this business is all about relationships and she just wanted to reach out as soon as possible to begin building a connection. “I just wanted to reassure them that this is their experience,” Stanton said. “We want to be able to build up trust because there is going to be a time when the rubber meets the road. I’m going to be pushing them and they are

going to have to trust we have their best interest at heart.” Recruiting has also kept Stanton busy since she arrived at IU. She said her main focus has been on recruiting and that she has already seen over 23 athletes in the past couple of weeks. “It’s been a whirlwind,” Stanton said. “I signed my contract and then it was straight to hitting the recruiting trails. This summer has been a huge recruiting period. The great thing is, when I’m talking to these athletes, I don’t have to sell IU.” Stanton also added two assistants to her coaching staff. Kendall Fearn and Chanda Bell joined IU’s staff after coaching with Stanton at Marshall. “I’m a big believer in having a staff that understands how I operate,” Stanton said. “I have a luxury because both Kendall and Chanda were with me the last four years

at Marshall. I really believe I have two of the best young coaches in the business. I don’t have to train them, they already know how I tick and operate so all we have to do is hit the ground running.” Bell is from Indianapolis so Stanton said she believes Bell could help keep some of the top recruits in state due to her familiarity of the area. Stanton also said she thinks coach Fearn is one of the best hitting coaches around. “The two of them are tremendous role models for our student athletes because they’ve both played at the highest level,” Stanton said. “I’m really excited about the staff we’ve put together and the great thing is we don’t have to waste any time putting our system in place with the athletes.” Stanton knows her system has potential based on her history, but she claims the past has nothing to do with

the future. “You are only as good as your next pitch,” Stanton said. “I just came off a top-25 season, but that doesn’t matter because we would have had to restart the next season anyways. The only thing that matters is how we can raise our expectations and the culture of excellence. We are going to talk to the players every day about where we are at and where we want to go.” Stanton hasn’t made any promises of winning a certain amount of games or championships, but she said she does expect a promising future with this program. Stanton said she never puts an expectation on numbers because she feels like you then limit yourself. “I like to put expectations on things like choices and behaviors,” Stanton said. “We are going to dream big and have some lofty goals, but those are going to be talked about a

little bit more loosely. What’s going to be really concrete and evident is our expectations on the way we behave and the choices we make. If you choose excellence, behave in a certain way and operate like a champion, then soon enough you’ll be holding a trophy at the end.” Stanton played four years at UNC Greensboro where she was part of a winning program that captured two conference titles during her time there. She knows what it takes to win and plans on bringing that winning mindset to IU. “We aren’t going to cap it or put any limits on what we can do,” Stanton said. “We are going to dream big and when we get to one level, we are going to push on to the next one. That’s why I’m excited about IU. I have a blank canvas here that I can leave my mark on and I really want this to be a significant and relevant program.”

wealthy Anne Elliot and the navy captain Frederick Wentworth — are an appealing part of the production, associate chair in the Department and director of “Persuasion” Dale McFadden said. “They tell the story of young people striving to find themselves in society and romance,” McFadden said. To produce both of these

plays at once, the cast rehearsed eight hours a day for six days each week. “As a performer, you have to remain on your toes, flexible and very focused,” McKnight said. The best way to deal with the heightened expectations of carrying two productions is to understand the collaborative nature of theater,

McKnight said. “You are relying on your fellow company members to show up and give one hundred percent, they are relying on you for the same thing,” McKnight said. “We all have to do it all.” Despite these difficulties, theater is important to those involved as it builds community and allows for thematic

expression. “The people who come are confronted with great ideas in a live setting, with the actors right there,” Michaelsen said. “That exchange is something you don’t find in the movies.” For McKnight, as important as community is finding enjoyment in an actor’s versatility and flexibility across the shows.

“A couple of the actors in this summer’s company are playing four roles,” McKnight said. “It’s been fun to watch them stretch their imaginations and their muscles to bring to life such a variety of characters.” Performances of “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “Persuasion” run until July 22 and 23, respectively.

Fant, Scales named to national watch list From IDS reports

A pair of IU teammates have recently been named to one of the most prestigious award watch lists in the country, honoring the best defensive player in college football. IU senior linebacker, Tegray Scales and fifth-year cornerback, Rashard Fant have both been named to the 2017 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List. The Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and Charlotte Touchdown Club announced the list on Thursday. The list boasts more than 100 of the most talented defensive players in the nation, which includes 14 other players from the Big Ten. Past recipients are some of the most accomplished at the next level in the NFL, Luke Kuechly, Ndamukong Suh, Terrell Suggs, Champ Bailey, Charles Woodson and Warren Sapp, the list goes on and on. Scales has quickly garnered the most national attention in the offseason, after already being named to the Bednarik award and Lott IMPACT trophy award watch lists. The All-American led the nation in solo tackles (93) and tackles for loss (23.5) in 2016, while snagging the Foster Farms Bowl Defensive Player of the Game. The Nagurski finalists will be announced on Thursday, Nov. 16 and the winner will be named at the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Banquet in Charlotte, on Monday Dec. 3. Rashard Fant is also getting national recognition in his fifth year at IU, as he has been named to the Bronko Nagurski along with the Thorpe Award Watch List. The Thorpe award is annually given to the best defensive back in country, based on performance, athletic abil-

ity and character. It also comprises a more selective watch list, with only 45 players. The award was established in 1986 and is named after Jim Thorpe. The culmination of four years at IU has earned Fant the title of the NCAA active leader in passes defended (48) and passes breakups (44). Last season, Fant matched up against the best receivers in the Big Ten and grabbed

three interceptions and 33 tackles. The Thorpe award is more traditional with three announced finalists. The winner is declared at The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 7 on ESPN. Fant has also been honored off the field, as he has been named to the Allstate American Football Coaching Association (AFCA) Good Works Team Watch List.

While players are generally recognized for their on-field achievements, the Good Works Team honors student-athletes that have made contributions to society. Volunteerism is key for the Good Works team and Fant has no shortage of experience. To name a few, Fant serves as a Hoosier Hero mentor, he has volunteered at Camp Riley for the past two years, which

empowers children with physical disabilities, and is a representative for the IU Student-Athlete advisory committee. AFCA has nominated 143 student-athletes over all three divisions and the recipients will be 22 players, 11 on the offensive team as well as 11 on the defensive side. The Good Works Team works differently than all the other awards teams, the

final team members are announced in September and fans can vote for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Captain throughout the season. More award watch lists have yet to be announced and all of the remaining lists will be declared by the end of the week, including the Biletnikoff and Walter Camp awards. TC Malik

IU’s nonconference Davis undergoing summer change schedule finalized By Andrew Hussey @thehussnetwork

From IDS reports

IU’s nonconference schedule was finalized Thursday and the Hoosiers will play 13 games before Big Ten conference play begins. The nonconference slate features five teams who made the NCAA Tournament last season. IU will play Western Kentucky, Chattanooga, Louisville, Auburn and Missouri, who all made the tournament last season. The Hoosiers will also face St. Mary’s and Virginia who both played in the WNIT Tournament last season. “I’m really excited about the schedule we’ve put together,” IU Coach Teri Moren said in a press release. “It features a lot of high-level opponents which will be great early tests for our program. I’m looking forward to the games we will play in front of our home crowd and the schedule as a whole will without a doubt prepare us for Big Ten play.”

The Hoosiers start the season Nov. 11 at home against Arkansas State. The next three games will be at home for IU against Southern University, Western Kentucky and Chattanooga. During Thanksgiving weekend, IU will travel to Moraga, California, for the St. Mary’s Classic. The Hoosiers will play UAB and St. Mary’s. The next week, IU will play Louisville in the Big Ten/ ACC Challenge. IU will play at home against Auburn on December 3 and travel to Northern Kentucky on December 5. The final home nonconference opponent will be December 9 against North Texas. After finals week, IU will play in the inaugural West Palm Invitational in West Palm Beach, Fla. where they will meet Virginia and Missouri. A road contest against Yale is IU’s last nonconference game on December 21. Andrew Hussey

The biggest player on IU’s roster is trying to get smaller. Following his freshman season, sophomore forward De’Ron Davis is undergoing a physical transformation this offseason. With Cliff Marshall coming to IU as the new strength and conditioning coach, Davis has shed 20 pounds as he looks to step into a bigger role this season for the Hoosiers basketball team. “It’s been up and down,” Davis said. “Been a lot of struggles, but in the long run it’s helped my body. I feel good. I don’t have any injuries right now on the court it was my first time with team practice was yesterday. I feel really good on the court, I feel light and explosive, and I’m just ready for the regular season to start.” As a freshman, Davis played in all 34 games for

the Hoosiers, averaging 5.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. Over the course of the season, he made four starts - three of which came late in the season – playing alongside former Hoosier Thomas Bryant. With Bryant gone, Davis will likely be IU’s main big man and IU Coach Miller will look to count on Davis for more playing time than last season. Davis wasn’t able to train with IU for the majority of the offseason before his freshman season and his conditioning suffered as a result. He was only able to play 13.9 minutes per game last season. Miller has been pleased by Davis’s progress so far this summer. “He’s done a great job in the classroom,” Miller said. “He’s done a great job in terms of when we first started, we have to get a couple things done before we can start talking about basketball, and that was conditioning and his body. And he’s done a fantastic

job there.” His teammates are seeing a difference. “I see a new found determination in De’Ron,” junior forward Juwan Morgan said. “Before he would always talk about it, and when he first got here last year it was always a confidence thing. Now he’s more confident. He sees the changes going on. We all see it, and we’re just going along with him and encouraging him as he’s going along.” Davis said he is able to get up the court faster and is able to stay on the court for more minutes next season.

“He just looks more agile,” Newkirk said. You can just tell he’s lighter on his feet. He’s moving better. The weight that he lost, it’s definitely helping him. So he just feels better. It’s just helping him a lot.” Last season, Davis was prone to foul trouble as he averaged 7.0 fouls per 40 minutes. “I used to foul a lot when I got tired, I would try to get a breather,” Davis said. “So me getting in better shape, me losing the weight, taking away some of those foulprone injuries.” While Davis has made significant changes during the offseason, Miller still believes there’s even more room for Davis to grow. “He’s moving and jumping as good as he ever has,” Miller said. “He has a great confidence about him. I think he feels good about himself. He still has another gear I think he can reach, which is good as he approaches these next three weeks and then he goes home.”

2017 Academy nominations snub ‘peak TV’ The 2017 Emmy Nominations began with a slew of technical difficulties and livestream failures, which, in retrospect, were a foreboding indication of the mostly underwhelming and occasionally upsetting choices to come. Critics and television reporters took to Twitter immediately to bemoan the middlebrow tastes of the Academy and mourn the acclaimed performances that were overlooked. The show on most critics’ lips was HBO’s “The Leftovers,” which having finished its third and final season is considered one of the best dramas in television history. You would be hard pressed to find a “Best TV of 2017” list that doesn’t include “The Leftovers,” but it would be even more difficult to walk up to someone on the street and find someone who watches or has even heard of the show. So what gives? Are critics out of touch with what the public — or even the more TV-literate Academy — wants to see? Or is more critically acclaimed television like “The Leftovers,” “Legion” or even “Twin Peaks” (which wasn’t eligible this year) just too dense and hard-to-follow for

“The Leftovers” finished its third and final season this summer.

the common TV viewer? The answer is probably neither. For better or worse, this divide between critical favorites and nominated shows may just be a product of the “peak TV” era, where there are just too many great shows and too little time. It’s not just audiences who can’t keep up with each new buzzy series — TV crit-

ics faced the same problem this spring, when acclaimed shows like “Fargo,” “American Gods,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Veep,” “The Leftovers,” and many more all aired in April — potentially the new “awards season” for the Emmys, based on the fact that many of those shows saw multiple nominations on Thursday. On the bright side, this

year’s Emmys were the most diverse class in history for the third year running, which signals a lasting change in the TV industry. Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” scored a nomination in every possible category, and the series has a very good shot at the top comedy prize in September. If this era of peak TV continues, it seems like there

Japanese Breakfast releases dreamy album I sliced through a cantaloupe, drove my car and cleaned my kitchen as I listened to this album. I can’t tell if it’s multipurpose, or if I am just a fan of it. I’ve always loved Japanese Breakfast. When I first heard “Everybody Wants to Love You” off the first album, “Psychopomp,” I knew it was going to be a life-long love. So, when Japanese Breakfast released its sophomore album “Soft Sounds from Another Planet” on July 14, I wasn’t surprised that I enjoyed it; I was surprised at the change in sound. This album is not like the more pop-oriented “Psychopomp.” It uses a lot of vibrato guitar, and a lot of Juno 6, a keyboard synthesizer that creates fluttering sounds. The album begins with the dreamlike “Diving Woman,” a six-minute song that starts with soft, waving keyboard. “I want it all,” Michelle Zauner sings over the sounds of her guitar and keyboard. This record is full of personal lyrics, something I really respect about Zauner. The record deals with her mother’s death and how she found something beautiful — love — during such a difficult time. “Machinist,” Zauner said in an interview with NPR, is about a woman falling in love with a robot — something that gives me serious “Her” vibes.

Hannah Reed is a junior in journalism.


“I don’t know how it happened,” she says, while the sound of ocean waves plays in the back. After the spoken word ends, she begins singing in a heavily auto-tuned voice. Something I don’t usually enjoy, but it worked well with this song. Perhaps the most dreamlike of all the songs, “Planetary Ambience” is an instrumental that consists of soft sounds and bleeps like the sounds satellites would make. “I wanted it to sounds like two satellites talking,” Zauner said in the NPR interview. The song is only one minute and 17 seconds, and it’s one of my favorites. Though I wish it were longer, it is the perfect length for an instrumental break between the tracks on “Soft Sounds from Another Planet.” “Boyish” is a track about

longing for someone who has eyes for someone else. “I can’t get you off my mind, you can’t get yours off the hostess,” Zauner sings over layered vocals. The track is actually the scratch take, Zauner told NPR. The newer versions she recorded didn’t sound as good to her, so she used the first take. She sings an apology in “12 Steps,” named after the bar where Zauner met her husband. Though she was dating someone else at the time, the song is her apologizing to the man she was with. The guitar riffs in this song are my favorite out of the entire album. The sounds mix perfectly with Zauner’s voice as she sings. “Find what’s left in you, channel something good,” Zauner sings over the guitar and drums.

The ocean wave sounds return on “Till Death.” Zauner sings “all our celebrities keep dying” as my mind wanders to David Bowie and I space out for a minute. Rest in peace. She pairs lyrics in this song with the song “Soft Sounds from Another Planet.” “While the cruel men continue to win/You’d reassure me in a way you only can” Zauner sings in “Till Death,” connecting back to the lyrics of “Soft Sounds” where she sings, “striving for goodness while the cruel men win/There’s no part of me left that can feel or hear it.” I’m going to be honest and say I don’t know what this pairing really means, but my excitement was real when I realized it connected the beginning of the album to its end. The album closes out with “Here Come the Tubular Bells,” which is a 41-second song that just consists of tubular bells. To me, it sounds like wedding bells, and it’s a fitting close to an album that is about finding love through the dark times. The album is available on iTunes for $9.99, and it’s free on the Spotify app if you’re a Spotify-shuffler like I am. @hannahreed13

may continue to be a divide between the shows that critics adore and fight for, and the ones that end up nominated for Emmys. That’s not to say that the shows nominated this week weren’t critically acclaimed; “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Better Call Saul” were well-reviewed this year, as were “Atlanta,” “Black-ish”

and “Master of None.” The point is that “Modern Family,” “Genius” and even “This Is Us” weren’t anywhere near the best-reviewed of the year, and their inclusion — and the many underwhelming nominated performances — mark a disconnect between what critics and the TV Academy deem worthy of recognition. When it comes down to it, though, most of these nominations don’t matter in the least when compared to the absolutely insane showdown for Best Actress in a Limited Series or a Television Movie. The ladies of “Big Little Lies,” Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, are facing Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon of “Feud,” Felicity Huffman of “American Crime” and Carrie Coon of “Fargo.” “Game of Thrones” may not have been eligible this year, but the battle between these queens is going to be an absolute bloodbath. @Kate__Halliwell

Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 in review Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival played host to 41 acts this year. While the headliners — LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest and Solange — delivered, there were 38 other acts to sort through, many of whom will stay in the national and international summer festival circuit. Whether you’re looking for what sets are worth watching on Pitchfork’s YouTube channel or want to know who to catch later on in the summer, here’s a list of the smaller acts that mattered most. Jeff Rosenstock Rosenstock, formerly of the DIY ska-punk outfit “Bomb the Music Industry,” had the unenviable position of playing an early afternoon slot Saturday. And while you might have a case if you accused this punk of selling-out — at one point he let his audience know he had been given $7,500 to play the show — you can’t accuse him of not giving it his all. The band ripped through material across Rosenstock’s impressive catalog, as well as a number of cuts off of his latest record, 2016’s “Worry.” Rosenstock will play The Void Aug. 5.

Dawn Richards Previously the singer for Danity Kane, Dawn Richards blasted off to the cosmic edges of R&B with her recent trilogy of albums, the last of which — 2016’s “Redemption — leaned heavily on EDM with a little bit of calypso thrown in for good measure. Backed by a live band and accompanied by two dancers, Richards’s set was a thrilling translation of her recorded work. Vince Staples The club rap of Long Beach, Calif. rapper Vince Staples’s latest record, “Big Fish Theory,” was impressive on record. Live, it’s absolutely thrilling. You know you have a good thing going when your audience already knows the words to your latest songs, and with new cuts “Party People” and “745” receiving as warm a reception as “Senorita” and “Blue Suede”, off of 2015’s “Summertime ‘06” and 2014’s “Hell Can Wait” EP, respectively, it looks like Staples is set to dominate the summer festival circuit. @BryanBrusee

Model minority myth harms AsianAmericans Neeta Patwari is a senior in biology and spanish.

As I watched director Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” America’s highest-grossing film by a black director, I noticed a scene in which an Asian man takes part in an auction for the protagonist’s life. While this role is a small one, largely insignificant to the film’s overall commentary on racism in modern America, it does perpetuate the myth that Asian-Americans are some kind of model minority. But this moniker conceals the fact that Asian-Americans, until quite recently, were considered to be no better than any other minority group. It also marginalizes the struggles of the Asian-American community, in both the past and present. It is true that, compared to other racial groups in the United States, Asian-Americans do remarkably well, as a whole. They have the highest level of income among all minorities and are the most educated, according to Pew Research Group. These statistics help cement the idea that AsianAmericans are a model racial group in United States, to which other ethnic groups should be compared. However, this view distorts the real truth of the model minority myth. Until the 1940s, the income level of Asian-Americans was remarkably lower than African-Americans. And that disparity wasn’t due to education rates, which haven’t changed much since then, according to the Washington Post. What changed over the latter half of the 20th century were the attitudes of white Americans toward their Asian counterparts. Beginning in 1882, Chinese immigrants were banned from entering the United States under the Chinese Exclusion Act, which was made permanent in 1902, until it was eventually lifted in 1943. In that time, Chinese immigrants were marginalized, struggled with unfair hiring practices and faced threats of mob violence, according to the University of California. Japanese-Americans were also discriminated against and forced to work domestic jobs or as agricultural laborers. The history of the model minority certainly seems counter to the public perception of these groups today. By accepting the title of model minority, Asian-Americans hurt themselves by ignoring the fact that, just a few decades ago, we weren’t considered to be any better than other minority groups. We prevent ourselves from combating the racism that stills pervades our society and affects us directly. The Asian-Americans Advancing Justice Center demonstrates the stark contrasts that exist within Asian-Americans. Certain ethnic groups are more prevalent on the upper-end of the socioeconomic ladder, while recent immigrants and under-educated immigrants live largely below the poverty line. While discriminatory patterns of behavior that negatively affected Asian-Americans—like workplace discrimination, police profiling and housing disparities—decreased significantly after the 1940s, we seem to have forgotten that those practices are still in place for other minority groups in the United States. By continually ignoring the problems that other minority groups face, as if these issues don’t affect us, we ignore the harsh reality that if those practices were still in effect today, we would be in the same situation as many of the other racial groups in the United States.


Health care bill revision still fails to provide adequate coverage Revised bill still places burden on those with preexisting conditions Last Thursday, GOP Senate leadership released the latest version of their health care bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, to repeal and replace the Obama Administration’s Affordable Care Act. The Editorial Board believes the bill strengthens the Republican ideal of aiding the healthy and disregarding the sick, producing what could be fatal consequences for many Americans. Unsurprisingly, the bill follows its predecessor by allowing insurance companies to deny coverage based on preexisting conditions, as well as charge the sick higher rates, a practice that benefits only healthy Americans. The bill will be the most costly for middle-class and lower-class Americans, with deductibles projected to rise under the GOP plan, according to an analysis by Vox. Health insurance companies have criticized the legislation for the skyrocketing premiums that

would result, adversely affecting those with already costly medical expenses. Thanks to the Cruz amendment, a distinguishing characteristic of the revised bill written by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), insurers would be permitted to sell plans that do not comply with Obamacare standards as long as they also offer Obamacare-regulated alternatives. Subsequently, healthy individuals and families would opt for non-Obamacare-regulated plans while sicker families would find coverage under the more expensive Obamacarecomplying plans, leaving those who need the most adequate health care with unreasonably expensive coverage. America’s Health Insurance Plans and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, two of the most influential lobbying groups on health care, wrote Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) regarding the dangers of

increased premiums provided by this bill, especially as a result of the Cruz amendment. “As healthy people move to the less-regulated plans, those with significant medical needs will have no choice but to stay in the comprehensive plans, and premiums will skyrocket for people with preexisting conditions,” the letter states. “This would especially impact middle-income families that [sic] are not eligible for a tax credit.” The revised Senate bill still includes an estimated $657 billion in Obamacare tax cuts, according to Vox. However, the bill includes two notable changes: $45 billion in spending to combat the opioid epidemic and $70 billion to offset the costs of highneed patients under state-based reforms. While the revised bill’s extra funding could be allocated to Medicaid coverage, the legislation continues to gash that service for low-income Americans.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release an updated score of the legislation Monday. However, it is unlikely that the revision will be significant in offsetting the projected effects of the GOP-made health care. The original bill’s CBO scoring projected that 22 million Americans would lose their health insurance. According to the New York Times, governors from both major parties have denounced the revised bill. Regardless of whether the revised Better Care Reconciliation Act receives enough votes to pass, it’s the American voters who will decide if its architects, politicians with no regard for the health of every different kind of American, deserve to stay in office. Constituents must demand the respect of their representatives in sickness and in health. We must reject the Better Care Reconciliation Act.


Iowa Rep. Steve King does not belong in the US Congress Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a man seemingly more bent on being a sensationalizing showman than an intelligent policymaker, unveiled a belligerently heinous plan for funding President Donald Trump’s border wall last Thursday in a televised CNN interview. Apparently, the Congressman intends to funnel the intended $1.6 billion, as well an additional $5 billion, from the budgets of Planned Parenthood and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to this inevitably doomed construction project. As he elaborated on his proposal, King proved he’s not the least bit fit to serve as a member of Congress due to his unapologetic ignorance and disregard for practicality. “We’ve got to put America back to work and this administration will do it,” King lauded. But, unsurprisingly, there’s nothing for this administration to do. Unemployment dipped to 4.3 percent in May of this year, the lowest it’d been in over a decade, and only rose slightly to 4.4 percent last month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In fact, current Chairman

of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen believed the United States was nearing full employment in January, back when the unemployment rate was still as high as 4.7 percent, according to The Economist. America is working. Near the conclusion of the interview, King complained that SNAP enrollment had reached 47 million people. When asked if he thought those people didn’t need the benefits provided by SNAP, King replied, “Oh, I’m sure that all of them didn’t need it.” The sentiments expressed by King indicate a dangerously uninformed perspective of SNAP and its enrollees that should prohibit him from defunding a program he seems to know nothing about. According to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the average SNAP household size was only 2.1 in 2015. To be eligible for SNAP, your gross household income must be at or below 130 percent of the poverty line. And, after a series of eligible deductions, your net household income must be at or below 100 percent of

the poverty line. For a household of two, that’s a gross annual income of $20,832 and a net income of $16,020. Those aren’t guidelines. Those are strictly enforced standards. It should worry King tremendously that so many people live in households with net annual incomes at or below the poverty line. And, for the record, 55 percent of SNAP households with children have earned income—meaning at least one member of the household is currently

working. That number rises to nearly 60 percent for households with children and an elderly, non-disabled adult, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Not only is America working but SNAP households are, too. So instead of making it more difficult for these people to eat, we should bring the number of SNAP enrollees down by raising incomes. A number of policy initiatives could help realize that goal, such as establishing a universal basic income.

Therin Showalter is a senior in media studies.

One of the eligibility requirements for SNAP includes a deduction for certain medical expenses. With a single-payer health care system, enrollees wouldn’t have nearly as many costs to deduct and would, thus, probably be ineligible for SNAP, bringing the total enrollment down. But it seems King isn’t interested in practical solutions. It seems he’s only interested in getting his name in the papers.
