Statute for rape extends 5 years
By Daniel Metz firstname.lastname@example.org | @DanielSMetz
IU beat No. 7 Louisville, 3-0 on Tuesday. The Hoosiers have now won 13 of their last 14.
Five years. That’s the amount of time a victim of sexual assault or rape in the state of Indiana has to charge an offender before the case legally has to be thrown out. A new piece of legislation just cleared the Indiana House of Representatives on Tuesday that provides victims of rape and sexual assault with an extension in the amount of time legally available to prosecute offenders. Senate Bill 94, which was authored by Indiana Sens. Michael Crider,R-Greenfield; Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso; and Brent Steele, R-Bedford, would increase the current statute of limitation in instances of rape under certain circumstances. A statute of limitation is a law that prohibits prosecutors from charging an individual with a crime outside of a specified period of time. The aim of these kinds of laws is to ensure convictions can only be made using evidence that has not deteriorated with time. The statute of limitations in instances of rape would be extended an additional five years if the state first discovers DNA evidence that is sufficient enough to charge an offender or if a person confesses to an offense. The bill passed unanimously in the House with a vote of 97-0. Crider authored the bill with the intention of offering a sense of peace to victims of sexual crimes. “My bill will extend the statute of limitations by an additional five years if there is a confession, or if new DNA evidence is identified,” Crider said in a press release. “My hope is that this legislation will not only give victims of these types of crimes some closure, but the opportunity for justice, which does not exist if the facts come forward outside the current five-year statute of limitation.” In Indiana the current laws state that for Class B, Class C or Class D felonies, charges for an incidence of rape cannot be filed more than five years after the alleged incident occurred. Rape becomes a Class B, Class C or Class D felony if an offender knowingly has sexual intercourse with another person without the victim giving his or her explicit consent. Indiana Rep. Christina Hale, DIndianapolis, proposed an amendment to the legislation Monday while the bill was open for debate in the House. Her goal was to protect victims whose perpetrators might have recorded or documented their rape. “One very positive thing is that people are getting caught for these
3-0 By Andrew Vailliencourt email@example.com | @AndrewVcourt
Junior Scott Effross started the shutout. Senior Ryan Halstead finished it — feeding the people in the process. It was a pitching duel Tuesday at Bart Kaufman Field that saw No. 24 IU knock off No. 7 Louisville 3-0 in IU Coach Chris Lemonis’ first meeting against his former team. The game ended in dramatic fashion as Halstead recorded back-to-back strikeouts to bring IU’s total to 12 — the number needed for all fans to receive a free combo meal at Chick-fil-A. “He’s gotta feed the people,” Effross said. “They were already getting sandwiches, but they were probably getting hungrier. He’s just money at the end of the game, so I knew he was going to get that strikeout.” Effross pitched four innings in just his second start after missing two because of soreness. Lemonis said he planned to limit him to four innings. He allowed no runs on two hits while striking out five. “I thought he was great,” Lemonis said. “We knew he was only throwing four innings at the most, but I was tempted and wondering, ‘Should we throw him back out there?’ But we’re trying to keep him ready for Big Ten play.” IU (16-5) did not commit an error after having eight in its last SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 6 Freshman spark, page 9 Freshman infielder Isaiah Pasteur hit two home runs and contributed all three RBI’s.

Students talk about sexual assault Grunwald Gallery unveils first set of thesis exhibits

In an effort to combat sexual assault and its stigma within the greek system, fraternity and sorority members met to discuss solutions. The sorority group Safe Sisters, which acts as a liaison and support system for sorority members who have experienced sexual violence, and its fraternity counterpart Men Against Rape and Sexual Assault (MARS) had a collaborative meeting to discuss sexual assault prevention methods within the greek system. Sexual Assault Crisis Center counselor Debbie Melloan and other SACS representatives were present to help answer questions and facilitate discussion. “Tonight was really historical,” Melloan said. “A lot of people have been invested in making campus and the two organizations who are LIONEL LIM | IDS represented here places that people Members from different sororities and fraternities meet to discuss sexual assault on SEE SEXUAL ASSAULT, PAGE 6

Students in the Henry Radford School of Fine Arts have many opportunities to display their work around Bloomington, though the biggest display of their work at IU appears during the MFA and BFA Thesis Exhibits. The Grunwald Gallery will open the first round of thesis exhibits with the work of six MFA and three BFA students today. For her portion of the show, BFA Textile student Abigail Liechty assembled a group of sewn and stuffed textile forms with a social media twist. “I’m creating sort of like a semi-portraiture setup where people will hopefully interact with and post on Instagram with the hashtag I’ve created,”
Liechty said. Liechty said she made 10 of these textile figurines for her thesis project by cutting and sewing pre-worked fabrics for the first time. Working in this fresh medium, she said, was an experience that helped her get in touch with her own personality. “These guys have these awkward gestures that relate back to the body,” Liechty said. “That’s me trying to make a physical context of more awkwardness or how much I feel about being awkward in real life and everyday social situations.” Life would be dreary without art, Liechty said, and the opportunity to express herself through her work at IU has helped her deal with life’s changes. “Art is just, it’s more than just SEE GRUNWALD, PAGE 6

Educator talks sexuality in art By Brett Dworski firstname.lastname@example.org | @BrettD93
Artist and educator Dean Adams began his presentation by telling the audience his work isnâ€™t what most people are used to seeing. â€œA woman at one of my past presentations glanced at a photograph of one of my sculptures,â€? he said. â€œAt first she thought it was a bird, but then she realized, â€˜My God, thatâ€™s a penis!â€™â€? The presentation, titled â€œThe Art of Being Male,â€? took place Tuesday at the IU Fine Arts Building. The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction sponsored the event. Adams, the foundations coordinator at Montana State University, combines his skill of ceramic art with humor in illustrating sexual
masculinity. His works mainly include penis-shaped sculptures combined with aspects of nature, such as birds. Although he mainly works with ceramic art in depicting sexual masculinity, Adams said he doesnâ€™t limit himself to a single medium with his profession. â€œI want to make positive sexual icons, meaning that I want to shed a positive light on the masculine side of sexuality,â€? he said. â€œMale sexuality in todayâ€™s culture is defined through hypermasculinity, which doesnâ€™t encapsulate the full being of an individual.â€? Adams said he uses a sense of humor to get people to think about how sexuality functions in their daily lives. Adams said he wants to help people become comfortable with their sexuality.
â€œI want people to either consider or reconsider the role of sexuality in their lives,â€? he said. â€œLetting people engage in issues of sexuality and combining it with humor allows people to lay their guards down.â€? Combining his humor with talks about sexuality allows people to let down their guards, he said. Nathan Davis, a former employee of Montana State University and friend of Adamsâ€™, was in attendance at the presentation and said Adams is â€œlike a ninjaâ€? with his craft. â€œItâ€™s amazing to see him keep doing what heâ€™s doing,â€? he said. â€œEven though heâ€™s so good at the ceramics aspect, thatâ€™s not what he likes to talk about the most. Adams said his interest in sexuality was triggered at a young age from his motherâ€™s
work; she started the first Rape Task Force in his hometown of Billings, Mont. Hearing stories from his mom about women being assaulted and raped by men made Adams afraid of his own sexuality. He overcame his fear by confronting it with art and humor, he said. Adams said he wants his work to give people a new outlook and awareness of sexuality in an affirmative way. â€œBeing able to openly talk about sexuality is healthy,â€? he said. â€œUsing humor just makes it easier.â€? Adams ended his presentation by saying he wasnâ€™t the first person to combine humor, art and sexuality all into one process. â€œI am not the first person to put wings on a penis nor to put penises on a bird,â€? he said.
Roberta â€œRobbieâ€? Kaplan, who served as counsel on the Defense of Marriage Act civil rights case, will deliver a lecture at the Maurer School of Law Moot Court Room on Thursday. The lecture is called â€œDefeating DOMA: United States v. Windsor and the Future of Marriage Equalityâ€? and will include discussion about the 2013 Supreme Court case, according to an IU press release. The case, United States v. Windsor, was filed by Edith Windsor, who wanted to claim a federal tax exemption for surviving spouses from the death of Thea Spyer, who she married in Canada, according to the press release. However, she was unable to do so because the Defense of Marriage Act defined marriage as between a man and a woman on the federal level, according to the press release. Kaplan represented Windsor and helped win her case. Windsor filed the suit in 2010, according to the press release. In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that DOMA was unconstitutional and therefore caused the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages, according to the press
release. Maurer associate professor Steve Sanders will introduce Kaplan at the lecture. Sanders and Kaplan, along with Dale Carpenter, a University of Minnesota law professor, are co-counsel on a recent Supreme Court amicus brief known as the Peopleâ€™s Brief sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, according to the release. While at IU, Kaplan will also participate in a panel discussion for the kickoff of the Harmony-Meier Institute, which has a mission to proliferate the values and practice of democracy and equity in education, according to the press release. Kaplanâ€™s visit is sponsored by the American Constitution Society, Outlaw, IU Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Alumni Association, Mauer LGBT Alumni Advisory Board, LGBT Project, Black Law Students Association, Law Students for Reproductive Justice, National Lawyerâ€™s Guild and Feminist Law Forum, the Harmony School Deborah Meier Institute for Democracy and Equity in Education and the IU School of Education, according to the press release. The panel will be at 6 p.m. today in the IU Auditorium lobby. Suzanne Grossman
UGG brand founder delivers lecture, tips for success By Nicole Goldman email@example.com
With Ugg Australia making quarterly sales close to $200 million, founder Brian Smith came to IU to speak about how to be successful in the fashion industry. Smith was presented by the Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design department on Tuesday as the 2015 Bill Blass Design Seminar lecturer at the Whittenberger Auditorium. Smith spoke to students and teachers about the journey of Uggâ€™s success. In 1978, a Californian surf magazine showcasing sheepskin boots fostered his inspiration for designing a
collection to bring back home to Australia. Today, Ugg is a billiondollar company that sells its shoes in more than 130 countries around the world. However, Smith said its success was not the smoothest ride. Smith launched his business in California with his friend Doug Jensen, who drove the San Fernando Valley launching sales and made the companyâ€™s first relationships with surf shops and small stores to purchase their product. â€œYou canâ€™t give birth to adults,â€? Smith said. â€œEvery business, every sandwich shop, every religion, every sitcom on TV starts with
somebody thinking the idea up, and then the first action is taken and thatâ€™s where the birth is given.â€? Smith spoke about the journey of Ugg and its launch into the world of fashion. He said people looking to start a business need to recognize they are going to start out small. â€œThe critical thing for entrepreneurs is ignorance,â€? he said. â€œBecause if you knew every detail of what was ahead, 95 percent of you would never start.â€? Like every business venture, Ugg experienced periods of success as well as times of hardship, Smith said. After a few years selling on California beaches, Smith
started pitching his product at large department stores and malls. â€œI remember going to Nordstrom, they said â€˜No, we donâ€™t sell those, we sell shoes,â€™â€? he said. â€œEvery retailer was the same.â€? Smith said he realized he was not going to reach big retailers until he conquered the small boutiques. â€œSometimes your most disappointing disappointments become your greatest blessings,â€? he said. â€œIf you put out good things, good things are going to come back.â€? Smith gave students advice on how to launch a business and stay focused on their goals. His book, â€œThe Birth of a
Students study the environmental problems of golf From IDS reports
The Environmental Protection Agency is funding an IU student research project, which is studying chemicalladen water that flows into areas surrounding the IU golf course. A group of students used the golf course as their laboratory, according to a University press release. Students studied the water and the path of its runoff. To solve the problem, they have planted different shrubs that should help stem the flow of this runoff into the surrounding areas. Some of this water had been running into the Griffy
Lake Nature Preserve. â€œWeâ€™re building something called a â€˜WASCOB,â€™ and that stands for water and sediment control basin,â€? SPEA graduate student Maggie Messerschmidt said in the press release. â€œWe are vegetating it with plants that we have been cultivating for over a year now. They should slow the flow down so there isnâ€™t so much wear and tear on our rivers.â€? The EPA funding is part of the agencyâ€™s â€œPeople, Prosperity and the Planetâ€? grants. The IU group is one of 42 student groups across the country that received the grant. It provides up to $15,000
in funds for projects that provide alternative, sustainable approaches to environmental problems, according to the press release. Students have already broken ground at the IU golf course on hole 16. This was to help students understand how to limit the run-off chemical-laden storm water, according to the University press release. The IU team is called the RAIN Initiative, which stands for Restorative Adaptations for Infrastructure. RAIN was founded by SPEA graduate students. It is now run by Melissa Clark, a faculty member at SPEA and biology faculty
members Keith Clay and Heather Reynolds, according to the University press release. â€œBuilding berms is hard work but worthwhile because what we learn here could have a positive impact on hundreds of golf courses and the surrounding neighborhoods and environment in how we manage storm water,â€? Clark, director of the project, said in the press release. â€œMany golf courses apply heavy doses of chemicals, and we want to discover the best practices for steering storm water quantity and quality.â€?

‘Mario Kart’ takes over Bear’s By Lyndsay Jones email@example.com | @lyndsayjonesy
Cords dangle from controllers as players shift in their seats. They stare intently at a screen in front of them, eyes locked on target. Tonight, they’re playing Mario Kart. But not the most recent version; they’re playing Mario Kart on a Nintendo 64. Kris “Krispy” Popplewell said he brings his N-64 collection of consoles and games to Bear’s Place every two weeks for tournaments in the back room. They change each week. Next week, players will be competing against each other in the original Super Smash Brothers. Popplewell said the game nights draw crowds so large
that it’s hard to push through the people packed into the room. “This place gets so loud for a game that started 20 years ago,” he said. Poppelwell started the game nights back in September. He said he used to be really good at both of them. “I used to run Ubercon, a sister convention of GenCon — the gaming convention — in Indianapolis,” Popplewell said. “I used to compete at the different tournaments around.” Popplewell runs his game nights in a tournament style as well. David Johnson, a friend of Popplewell’s, is in charge of running a bracket that eliminates players down to the final winner.
“Krispy makes sure everyone comes in, I make sure everyone leaves happy,” Johnson said. Johnson said there were a lot of regulars, but they are always trying to recruit new people. Patrick Donalds said he’s been coming since he heard about it in January and he and his three friends came in first, second and third place in the last tournament. “I’m good at Super Smash Brothers,” Donalds said. “I really like meeting people that aren’t as good as us and then getting them on our level. There’s something about that.” Although the room fills with more than 100 people regularly, not all of them are

Popplewell said he loved hosting the tournaments. “This is the only tournament where we encourage drinking and driving,” Popplewell said. Johnson said he felt the same. “I remember when we got back from winter break, you could hardly push through the people,” Johnson said. “You see that, and that’s like why you do this.”
Though it is a topic that always seems to linger, the issue of government corruption has rocketed to the forefront of Bloomington politics with the recent federal indictment of two city employees. Democratic mayoral candidate John Hamilton addressed his plans to deal with corruption in a press conference Tuesday morning at City Hall. “Preventing corrupt activities and making government more efficient requires engagement and transparency,” Hamilton said in a prepared statement. “Because of my background running state agencies and regulated financial institutions, I have the experience to know the need for checks and balances, segregation of duties, independent oversight and clear accountability.” Hamilton outlined a three-point plan to make city government more open. He said he would establish a whistleblower hotline, which city employees and residents could use to anonymously alert the mayor’s office and the City Council of any wrongdoing. Second, Hamilton said he would create a fiscal control task force made up of financial professionals who will volunteer to assess the city’s finances and make recommendations. And third, Hamilton said
he would make sure city records would be easily accessible online and in-person by the public. Hamilton said he met with former Bloomington mayors Tomi Allison and John Fernandez and former deputy mayor John Whikehart — all of whom serve on Hamilton’s campaign — to discuss his measures to combat corruption. Justin Wykoff, a former manager for the Engineering Services for the City of Bloomington, pled guilty March 13 to federal charges of fraud. On the same day, Judith Seigle, former office manager with the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department, was indicted for fraud. “Recent city steps taken to assure the basics of segregating fiscal duties, eliminating some-200 credit cards and analyzing oversight are important first steps,” he said. Hamilton said his experience working under Indiana governor Frank O’Bannon at the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration has qualified him to manage a large sum of public money responsibly. “These two recent instances of fraud at the city exposed structural problems with how the city protects public funds,” Hamilton said. “With my experience as mayor, I will lead a hands-on approach fully to restore the public’s trust and ensure accountability at all levels of city government.”
Coats to not seek re-election From IDS reports
Sen. Dan Coats announced Tuesday that he will not seek re-election in 2016. Coats was elected to for a second swing in the Senate in 2010. He had previously served from 1989 until 1999. He was ambassador to Germany between terms. After retiring in 1999 he decided to jump back in 2011. Coats’ decision could trigger an open-seat race. Democrats need to gain four seats to win the majority in the Senate in 2016, five if a Republican takes the White House. The National Republican Senatorial Committee
seems confident it will fill the seat. “We have a strong Republican bench in Indiana, Dan Coats and I am confident that we will have another capable Republican joining us in the Senate in 2016 to continue Dan’s great work,” NRSC Chairman Roger Wicker said in a press release. Coats said he is grateful to God and to Hoosiers who allowed him to serve his state and country. “This was not an easy decision,” Coats said in a press release. “While I believe I am well-positioned to run a successful campaign for
another six-year term, I have concluded that the time has come to pass this demanding job to the next generation of leaders.” Coats is closing an extraordinary career in public service, Gov. Mike Pence said Tuesday. “While we greet this news with mixed emotions, we will always be grateful for the example, life and service of Senator Dan Coats and his family,” Pence said in a press release. “We look forward to working with the Senator during the remainder of his term.” Coats is 71 years old and a graduate of the IU Maurer School of Law.

Woman pushed from car after argument From IDS reports
Bloomington police responded to a simple assault at about 12:40 a.m. Monday, Capt. Joe Qualters said. A woman and her boyfriend had been out and were driving to the woman’s house. The woman said she was feeling pain in her back and asked her boyfriend to take her to the hospital. He refused to take her, causing a verbal dispute between them. They had stopped the
car near the intersection of Chambers Drive and Rodgers Street. They sat in the car for about 10 minutes, presumably arguing, Qualters said. After fighting, the man opened the passenger door from the driver’s seat and attempted to push the woman from the vehicle. She told police she was hanging onto the door because she didn’t want to be struck by oncoming traffic. Eventually, he was able to push her from the vehicle and drove away. The inter-
section was a block away from the woman’s house. After falling from the vehicle, she went to her home and called police. Police attempted to contact the man but were unable to get an answer. They questioned the woman and called an ambulance because of her previous complaint of back pain. She was taken to the hospital, Qualters said. The case is active and remains under investigation.

Pence to sign Religious Freedom bill From IDS reports
A Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed through the Indiana General Assembly on Tuesday when the Senate voted to concur with the House of Representatives’ amendments. RFRAs are pieces of legislation that make it legal for businesses and organizations to refuse service to individuals for personally held religious beliefs. Opponents of the bill claim it is a form of
state-sanctioned discrimination, specifically targeting gay and lesbian Hoosiers. The bill passed as amended in the House on Monday and passed the Senate on Tuesday with a vote of 40-10. It will now be sent to Gov. Mike Pence to sign the bill into law, which he has said numerous times before he would do. Already, there has been backlash to the bill’s passage. Gen Con, Indianapolis’s largest convention that
attracted 56,000 people last year and had an estimated economic impact of more than $56 million, threatened to move the convention to a different city if Pence signs the RFRA into law. The convention is under contract to hold the conference in Indianapolis through 2020, but spokesperson Stacia Kirby stated an RFRA would affect their decision to remain there in the future.

A promise of primaries From my seat in the back of the classroom Monday morning, I gasped in horror and dread, turning heads and narrowly avoiding the attention of the professor before me. The notification from CNN read simply: “Ted Cruz announces 2016 presidential bid.” I fumed at the headline while being jerked back through time to a 21-hour day in September 2013 I’d hoped to block from memory. The revelation that Ted Cruz is running for the Republican presidential nomination wasn’t a surprise in itself; rather, it was the prospect of such an individual as the leader of our nation — the tangibility of his candidacy — that took my breath away. But as a knot of apprehension formed in my stomach, I found myself smiling. As soon as class concluded, I pulled up his announcement speech, my smile widening with each rhetorically redundant “imagine.” As a senator, Ted Cruz is undoubtedly a threat to the American people’s freedom and sanity, but he certainly is not as a candidate for the Republican nomination. In fact, his menace to the pursuit of happiness would diminish significantly were he to win that nomination. Why? Because an upright broomstick is more qualified to lead than Ted Cruz, and I know the American people are intelligent enough to discern as much and flee his repulsive platforms with urgency. Firstly, Cruz’s decision to make his proclamation from Liberty University — the largest Christian university in the world — throws the notion of separation of church and state out an unpopular window. If Cruz’s speechwriters had analyzed polling data before composing his symbolically stagnant addresses, they’d find that 66 percent of Americans don’t believe political leaders should rely on religion when making policy decisions. Secondly, Cruz launches self-righteously into a sermon on “the promise of America,” the delineation of which turns out to be just as vague and subjective as one

might imagine. After telling stories about himself and his family in a clumsy abstract by inviting the audience to teenaged Cuban, he provides a soundbite with all the conviction and shaky grammar that’s become characteristic of so many modern political figures. “What is the promise of America? The idea that — the revolutionary idea — that this country was founded upon, which is that our rights, they don’t come from man. They come from God Almighty.” As I winced through his evocations of “American exceptionalism,” the “shining city on a hill” and “millions of courageous conservatives all across America rising up together,” my glee became utter relief. Although Cruz’s platforms are typical of conservative candidates and receive popular support from rightwing Americans — religious protection for Christians, repealing Obamacare, limiting abortion and marriage rights — his pronouncement of that list echoed with heavyhanded Bible-thumping that smacked more of the Old Testament than the headbanging greatest hits usually rolled out at conventions to win votes. With a quick shoutout to Reagan to boost morale and a fumbled mass-text movement, he blurts out his intent to pursue the nomination and waves to the crowd of students required to be present before finally leaving the stage. Is Ted Cruz a mediocre politician and ideologically disillusioned individual? Is his every vote, opinion and movement repugnant? Absolutely. Am I furious that he’s running for president? Absolutely not. Until other candidates for the GOP nomination make themselves known, Cruz’s declaration reassures me I’ll be sporting blue with pride for many years to come. firstname.lastname@example.org

Default in our browsers WE SAY: R.I.P. Internet Explorer, you sucked Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the elderly, Microsoft has announced it will be phasing Internet Explorer out of its products. The end of Internet Explorer is nigh, and the cause of death, surprisingly, won’t be a crash. But before you dislocate your hip and type up a strongly worded email through your AOL account, do not fret too much. Microsoft is going about this in true Internet Explorer fashion, and you can expect an excruciatingly slow process. Unlike Internet Explorer’s all-toocommon “not responding” message, Microsoft is responding to the unsalvageable poor reputation of the Internet Explorer name by creating a new browser in an effort titled “Project Spartan.” It’s really more of a rebranding thing than anything else. We just hope Microsoft won’t be spartan with its improvements. In defense of Microsoft, it went wrong in two critical ways. Back in the mid-1990s, Microsoft was pretty late to the browser game, considering the Internet was already
Defending offending In a true victory for free speech, the Indian Supreme Court declared this week arrests made for offensive content online were unconstitutional. This action comes in the form of the Court striking down Section 66A of the Information Technology Act, an act meant to keep Indian citizens away from material they might find offensive. In fact, the main push behind this act came from the idea that offensive material can lead to criminal acts brought on by public anger and violence. In a sense, this act was meant to keep people from overreacting to something they might see online. However, just as any person with half a brain cell would have predicted, the local police departments in various states were using this section as a way to quiet those who had controversial opinions about political issues. Surprise, surprise — governments don’t really care about protecting your fragile little mind. Though this is obviously a huge step in the right direction for free speech in India, my main concern in seeing this story was the idea that offending someone should be taken so seriously that we might need a law to stop it. Perhaps I’m out of my element here because so few things truly offend me, but I’ve always considered wallowing in the fact that I’ve been offended a really big waste of my time. In fact, I think it’s a necessary part of the global discussion on

many issues. I honestly didn’t care about ISIS until I head they were massacring villages that didn’t believe in their ideology. That offended me greatly, and as a result I’m following the story more. That might be a pretty extreme example, but my point is that too many people completely waste time being offended. They let it surround them, filling every nook and cranny of their emotional being until there isn’t any room for logic or action. When something offends me, I take some time to evaluate it. Why does this offend me? Should it? If it should, what can I take away from this offensive message? It just seems so useless to me to call the police because someone offended you on the Internet. What did you gain by doing that? The ability to dial a phone? It may sound kind of strange, but I honestly think if you aren’t getting offended on a regular basis, you are shutting yourself off from ideas that can grow and develop you as a human being. I’m not saying every offensive remark is some deep viewpoint you should instantly accept. Rather, we all need to have our boundaries pushed once in a while so we can know exactly where they lie. email@example.com
a tepid commodity in the technology world. Even then, Microsoft was relatively uninterested in this new frontier; operating systems were its game. But when upstart Netscape produced a browser — Netscape Navigator — designed to render operating systems ancillary, Microsoft couldn’t just stand by and let itself become irrelevant. That’s Apple’s job. Microsoft threw together a web browser to become a part of its operating system in a successful move to edge out the competitor, which essentially didn’t have as big a name or a pre-existing operating system behind it like Microsoft to give it invaluable traction in the tug-of-war for cyberspace. And when we say the folks at Microsoft threw their dog into the ring, they actually sent in a puppy. People like puppies more, so the puppy won even though it maybe shouldn’t have if you think about which browser hound was better trained compared to the Netscape Navigator mutt. Then comes the second way in which Microsoft screwed the pooch. When you haphazardly whip up a mediocre browser, people eventually start
to realize its mediocrity. People realize quickly when said mediocre browser has a near monopoly on browser usage, especially from businesses that develop their software and IT around Internet Explorer compatibility. And then enters Internet Explorer 6, which was the abysmal iteration that sealed its fate. With a legendary deuce of a browser that reached meme-level infamy, there was no going back. The Internet that the browser helped forge would be its undoing. Microsoft released later versions of the browser to make things right, but things were still going to go wrong for it as long as the same name was attached. It’d be like naming other ships “Titanic” or other television shows “Glee.” Adding a bunch of fancy cannons to a sinking ship just means your sinking ship now has more fancy cannons — and it’s heavier. Microsoft’s renaming could troubleshoot its strife with the Spartan reboot. But based on its track record, Microsoft should probably stick to what it does best: Word.
No longer sweeping issues under the rug The Kappa Delta Rho fraternity at Penn State is now under investigation after a private Facebook page belonging to the fraternity was discovered. The Facebook page contained pictures of nude women who appeared to be unconscious and were posted by fraternity members. A special task force was created specifically to investigate these allegations. Penn State University president Eric Barron released a statement about the investigation, which implies they are taking this situation seriously. Meanwhile, students are rallying and asking that those who are members of the Facebook page not be given their degrees. Although this might appear to be a harsh punishment for the members, it is completely proportionate to the wrongfulness of their conduct.
Many fraternity members may go on to be leaders of businesses and our coworkers after earning their degrees. These postings completely support rape culture. If these men feel comfortable enough to post unauthorized nude pictures of women, they have the ability to make even worse, detrimental decisions. I do not want somebody who was affiliated with an organization that has posted nude picture of women online without consent to be my boss or my coworker later down the road. It would make many women feel unsafe and uncomfortable. Therefore, not granting the offending members their degrees would be appropriate. In the past few years, many issues and scandals among fraternities surrounding sexual assault seem to have been swept
under the rug. The serious Elisa Shrack matter in which Penn State is a senior in human development. is approaching this horrific event is refreshing.

J-U-R-Y does not spell ‘rubber stamp’ Break out the world’s smallest violin for prosecutors in Alachua County, Fla. They’re having problems finding citizens who will jail other citizens for marijuana possession. In one recent case it took hours to weed out (pun intended) prospective jurors who didn’t think marijuana should be illegal. Giansville Sun writer Cindy Swirko’s “When opinions on pot, and the law, collide” is a refreshingly fair-minded piece on this “problem” and on the wider phenomenon of jury nullification. Jury nullification occurs when a jury bases its verdict not on the facts of a case, but on the jurors’ opinion that the law is defective or morally wrong. That might sound strange, but it’s an important part of American legal history. Jury nullification was a key tool of the 19th century’s anti-slavery movement. The Fugitive Slave Act imposed criminal penalties for assisting fleeing slaves. Northern juries refused to convict Underground Railroad activists. Jury nullification also helped to end alcohol
prohibition as juries frequently declined to convict bootleggers. In one (perhaps apocryphal) case, the jury allegedly “drank the evidence,” then acquitted. In a 1969 case, United States v. Moylan, where the defendants stood accused of impeding the military draft, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals held unanimously that “if the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused is unjust, or exigent circumstances justified the actions of the accused, or for any reason which appeals to their logic or passion, the jury has the right to acquit, and the courts must abide that decision.” As more and more Americans conclude the “war on drugs” — especially marijuana — is impractical and immoral, that force is once again making itself felt. Prosecutors hate jury nullification. It messes up their batting averages. The measure of prosecutorial effectiveness is the conviction rate. That’s why plea bargains are so popular. Ninety-two percent of Americans
charged with crimes plead guilty in return for lesser charges or lighter sentences. Of the 8 percent who go to trial, three-fourths are convicted. Yes, that’s right; of 50 Americans accused of crimes, 49 plead guilty or are convicted. But that one acquittal drives prosecutors nuts. So, with the cooperation of judges, they’ve turned jury selection into an extended interrogation with only one acceptable answer: “Yes, I will serve unquestioningly as your rubber stamp.” The Fully Informed Jury Association fights this trend, working to ensure prospective jurors know about their right to “judge the law as well as the facts” and to explicitly codify in our laws an obligation of judges to inform them of that right. Are your legislators sponsoring a Fully Informed Jury Act in your state? If not, maybe you should call their offices and ask why. Tom Knapp email@example.com
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Secret Service incident notes double standard Imagine the following scenario: You’re driving along one fine evening, pretty thoroughly drunk, and ram your car through police tape and into a barricade. Suppose further that the barricade you’ve smashed into is in front of the White House. For good measure, let’s add that the police tape you broke was marking off an active crime scene — an ongoing bomb investigation, which you’ve now dangerously disrupted. The cops quickly approach your car. What are your chances of avoiding arrest, or worse? Oh wait, I forgot to mention that you’re a Secret Service agent. So it turns out you don’t get shot, or tased, or roughed up, or slapped in jail, or even detained. You just go home. Precisely this scenario unfolded March 4, with two seemingly intoxicated Secret Service agents crashing into a barricade at the east entrance to the White House grounds, nearly running over a suspicious object that agents on the scene were in the course of investigating as a possible bomber. Officers on duty wanted to arrest the two or give them sobriety tests, but were instructed by a supervisor to let them go. They’ve been placed in “nonsupervisory, non-operational,” but presumably paid positions pending further
investigation. What are the odds this would have happened to you or me? Predictably, the incident has led to renewed calls for major reforms of the Secret Service. But the double standard — leniency for the elite in-group, severity for the rest of us — is inherent in the system and cannot be corrected by mere reforms. Implicit of the idea of a governmental police force, from the Secret Service down to your local beat cop, is inequality of rights. Police by definition are supposed to have rights other people don’t have: rights to stop, search or incarcerate peaceful people and to use deadly force against those who resist. But as long as this double standard is inherent in the police system as such, all attempts to reform the system are destined to fail, whether in Staten Island, Ferguson or the Secret Service. So long as power corrupts and attracts the corruptible, any system characterized by inequality of rights renders abuse inevitable. Reforms that target only the symptoms (abuses) and not their root cause (unequal rights) will achieve, at best, only limited success. The right to use force in defense of oneself or others is a basic and universal human right. But the rights police claim for themselves go beyond this.
Tossing someone in jail for smoking a joint or shooting them when they resist being kidnapped cannot plausibly be construed as defense. And anything a cop is allowed to do that an ordinary citizen is not — carry a gun, perform arrests and so on — violates the basic equality of rights enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, “all men are created equal,” and the Constitution, “equal protection of the laws.” If we do not wish to perpetuate a two-tiered system of justice, any purported right must either be extended to all or denied to all. There’s nothing wrong with a group of people choosing careers specializing in rights-protection. But it makes no more sense to give such people special rights, rights denied the rest of us, than it does to give professional bakers the right to prevent you from baking bread in your kitchen. A free society cannot recognize special rights enjoyed by some and denied to others. So long as we permit the double standard inherent in a system of government police, abuses will continue, and reforms will founder. Roderick Long firstname.lastname@example.org

One student’s thoughts on achieving goals “Live like every moment was your last,” “Live like you will die tomorrow” and maxims in this vein are both inspiring and well-meaning, but they do not provide a sense of direction, nor do they adhere well to the way life operates. Can you truly live like it is your last moment when you are brushing your teeth, showering, waiting for a friend at a food court or sleeping? The exalted drama, the great sense of satisfaction promised in these sayings is found not in every single moment, but in the trends and patterns you set for yourself. These trends and patterns are made most obvious when you examine your goals in life and how you work to achieve them. As I mentioned, life is not such that ev-
ery waking moment can be one lived as thought it were your last. This is what causes many people to despair, to feel that they are not achieving anything. The way to be successful and happy is to set goals for yourself and to funnel all of your efforts toward achieving them. Let every moment, the good and the bad, the enthralling and the boring, be purposeful with some end in mind. This slow funneling of effort, this purposeful action, will help give you a sense of direction and happiness by attaching a narrative, a greater importance, to even the most mundane of moments. The ambitions of students at this university are as varied as the students themselves. Whether you want to begin
to love yourself, speak to people more often, get a certain GPA, overcome heartbreak or prepare for a job, in addition to any other feasible goal, I cannot know. But I know if you work constantly, little by little, that you will see improvement in your life, and you will succeed as you want. Be ever loftier. From where you are currently, go up. Always higher. Ever loftier. This is a maxim that is better reflective of reality and gives you a sense of direction in life at a time when your direction is not yet fully known.

China is in the process of launching a new international financial institution by the end of this year. It will be called the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, or AIIB for short. It will look to help modernize through funding the infrastructure of many of Asia’s developing countries. This institution will fit nicely with China’s strategic goals of playing a stronger leadership role in the region and promoting economic development across the board. There is just one problem. The United States doesn’t seem to like it. From the beginning, the U.S. has been skeptical of the oversight and the transparency of the bank. Not to mention the fact that the creation of this new bank will overlap with some of the functions of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank — all three of which happen to be Western-dominated, interestingly enough. There are many who speculate the U.S. is weary of having a Chinese-led rival that might disrupt the region and counter American interests. So the U.S. has been vocal about its concerns, and historically, that would be enough for our Western counterparts and Asian allies to follow suit. However many Western countries have defied the United States’ position. To name just a few, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, France and, most surprisingly of all, Great Britain have all applied to be founding members of the bank, and there could be more before the March 31 deadline. South Korea is also weighing a membership bid — an indication it may be considering a pivot toward cooperation with China rather than the U.S.

in the region down the road. To make matters worse, International Monetary Fund Director Christine Lagarde issued a statement in Beijing in support of the creation of the new bank and pledged a willingness to cooperate with it. This is quite a different stance than we thought they would take. So where does that leave us? And why should we care? I have written before about the growing power of China and the seeming unpreparedness on our part. The world is changing rapidly, and time and time again we find ourselves behind the eight-ball. My fear is, as we lose our influence either justifiably or unjustifiably, we respond poorly and increase the divide between us and much of the world. If American influence is waning around the world, it is going to take serious work to redefine our foreign policy and our national identity. For several decades, we have held the privileged position of the sole super power. Whether we like it or not, that has affected how we view the world and other nations. I am extremely proud of role the U.S. has played in shaping and leading the world, and my hope would be that this continue. But if not, we need a quick rethink of how we interact with the emerging powers in the world who have a thirst for influence and are determined to quench it. firstname.lastname@example.org
SHELLING IT OUT
Trainor is terrible If there was an award for worst role model of the year, Meghan Trainor would most definitely get my vote. But before I address that, it is important to note I, like many others, support what is quoted by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as being the “Social, political and economic equality of the sexes.” In other words, I’m a feminist. Obviously the support of feminism isn’t for everyone, and everyone most certainly refers to Meghan Trainor, or as I like to call her, the world’s least influential woman. “I don’t consider myself a feminist,” Trainor said in an interview with Billboard. “But I’m down for my first opportunity to say something meaningful.” Although questionable given the day and age, that’s not what makes Trainor a bad role model. The pop singer most known for “All About That Bass” recently released her new music video for “Dear Future Husband,” a song listing relationship-y things a “man” should do. Cute concept, right? Sure, until you realize the lyrics detail traditional gender roles and say things like “Don’t forget the flowers every anniversary” and “I’ll be the perfect wife, buying groceries.” Not to mention Trainor is singing portions of the song while scrubbing the kitchen floor and baking in an apron. The video has been deemed the “most sexist music video ever” by Metro, and for good reason. With society trying so hard to advance the equalities of women, it’s almost as if Meghan Trainor single-handedly decided to take us back a few steps. But the sexist comments aren’t the only thing Trainor has been in hot water for the past months. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Trainor spoke about being one of the larger girls in her school

growing up and dismissed the thought of having an eating disorder in a way that made fans and fellow celebrity Demi Lovato stop in their tracks. “I wasn’t strong enough to have an eating disorder,” Trainor said to ET. “I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that’s not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, ‘Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, immediately.’” Seriously? As with any controversial celebrity comment, Twitter was sent into a whirlwind of backlash including Tweets from singer-songwriter Demi Lovato, who has publicly voiced her struggles with an eating disorder to her fans. “Having an eating disorder doesn’t show ‘strength,’” Lovato said. “Strength is when (you) are able to overcome your demons after being sick and tired for so long ... Let’s be cautious of the words we use when discussing ED’s and other mental illnesses.” As a woman in today’s society, mental health issues and feminism are two of the most important topics to me. Though some are uneasy about declaring themselves a feminist, informed individuals know the term simply refers to allowing women the same opportunities men have. As for the eating disorder commentary, Trainor probably wasn’t aware she would spark such a debate. Nevertheless, such a sensitive topic that affects millions of people worldwide should not be joked about or glorified. If you’re looking for someone to call your idol, just make sure you find someone other than Meghan Trainor. email@example.com

A true sustainable United States will not happen in an instant Reports this week claim Costa Rica has been getting all of its energy from renewable resources since Jan. 1. Thanks to heavy rainfall and hydroelectric infrastructure, the country has remained independent from fossil fuels for 75 days. Costa Rica has even been able to drop electricity rates by 12 percent, according to the
Costa Rican Energy Institute. Of course, this has prompted several people on the Internet to spout comments comparing Costa Rica’s energy capabilities with our own. If Costa Rica can do it, then so can we. Ideas like this are falsely based. It would be awesome if the U.S. could run solely on renewable energy, but right now it’s unrealistic.
The U.S. population is 65 times larger than Costa Rica’s, which means our energy needs are much greater. I guarantee Costa Rica’s renewable sources would not be producing enough energy for 318.9 million people. Also, much of Costa Rica’s energy came from heavy rainfall and hydroelectric infrastructure. Several parts of the U.S.
are currently going through a drought, and it would be up to the other sources to not only produce a lot of energy, but to also make up for where hydroelectric falls behind. I’m pro-energy. I would love to live in a place that completely relies on renewable sources for energy. But that’s not possible in the U.S. right now. Our population
is too large, and we’re not willing to give up gas. That doesn’t mean it’s our fault we’re dependent on fossil fuels. Oil and gas are just too convenient to give up for most of us, and current technology hasn’t made other sources all that convenient. So maybe the lesson isn’t that we should play like Costa Rica and attempt the

senses,” Shuh said. “These topics have needed to be talked about for so long.” Safe Sisters and MARS used conversation starters from IU’s It’s On Us Summit that took place last week. The discussion prompts encouraged members to look forward and focus on improving greek culture, Interfraternity Council Vice President of Personal Development Jesse Scheinman said. Amongst the popular discussion prompts were questions that addressed greek life’s current culture, perception and what chapters would like their future legacy to be. When members joined a larger group discussion at the end of the session, several groups noted the greek image both in the media and from non-affiliated students was often negative and based off of specific events or stereotypes. “What you see in the
news when chapters get kicked off for things like hazing or sexual assault, those aren’t representative of what it means to be greek,” Scheinman said. “They’re not living their values, and they’re not serving the original purpose of why greek organizations are here.” To combat those who fail to live up to greek values, MARS director Bill Phan suggested changing the culture of a chapter from within. “A lot of times you are in a greek organization where things are already in place, everything’s already there, everything’s already tradition,” Phan said. “Because it’s tradition you’re going to continue doing it. The times when fraternities actually improve are when one person challenges it.” Safe Sisters co-director Dylan Lanoff encouraged the larger group to not only
embrace change in the culture but to be vocal about it. “The negative things that happen in greek life that people hear about are very loud and overt and out there but the good things that happen tend to be not as overt and loud and in your face,” Lanoff said. “It’s important to encourage these MARS and Safe Sisters members to make that push and be loud and overt about the good things that they’re doing.” Having both the sorority and fraternity perspective present also made discussions of sexual assault less confrontational or judgmental, Lanoff said. “I think it’s important that we came together to talk about this so we understand that we want to work together,” Lanoff said. “We’re not blaming men for sexual assault. We’re blaming the people who sexually assault.”

an expression of yourself,” Liechty said. “It’s a way to understand what you’re feeling because, at times, I’m working on a project, and it’s more than just completion. It’s understanding the emotion or things I was going through.” Liz Scofield, an MFA student in the Digital Art program, also looked within herself for her latest project. The title of her exhibit is “Making Myself, Selling Myself, Playing With Myself” and is split into three parts: an action figure, a commercial and a short film. Scofield said she started out by doing five full-body scans to create figurines of herself, then used those figurines to craft a commercial and film a melodrama, both of which will play on loop in the show. The theme is Scofield’s body as a commodity. “I’ve been using my own identity and body and experience to sort of interrogate social systems and systems of power that reinforce, build constructions, punish deviances and sort of normalize identities and normalize behavior,” Scofield said. Scofield said using her body as a commodity works to fight stereotypes, and she hopes to communicate how influential her identity has been in her artistic perspective. “I’ve always been interested in identity and gender and queerness, using my own queer identity and trans identity as the material to ask these political and social questions to push back against the systems that punish against deviance,” Scofield said. Some of the work focuses less on personal identification and more on revitalization of a landscape. Aric Verrastro, MFA Metalsmithing and Jewelry, looked into what he calls the “renaissance” of his home in Buffalo, N.Y. Verrastro said when he
went home last summer he realized some of the architectural staples of the town gained new purpose with the help of funding from the city. In order to commemorate this change, Verrastro said he refocused his artistic perspective. “When I first came here, all my work was about gender equality and human rights,” Verrastro said. “It’s making work that was largescale and that supported that idea and, again, soft, approachable forms, but now it’s shifted to this, because of seeing how Buffalo’s in its renaissance.” Verrastro also changed up his material preferences for this body of work, transitioning from fabrics to metals and driftwood from Lake Erie. He added, however, that his work still maintains a softer quality. “All the pieces have lots of colorful stitches on them, and it’s like me metaphorically stitching the past, present and future together,” Verrastro said. “Each piece becomes like a section of a quilt, and each section of the quilt is this specific story.” More traditional works include the paintings of Benjamin Timpson, who returned for an MFA degree after 10 years away from the art scene. Timpson’s work focuses on human nature as well as the constant struggle to strive for the best. “We’re all human, we all make mistakes, we all make choices,” Timpson said. “Choices affect our life. There’s a duality in everybody, no one has the answer.” Art is more than just what exists on the surface, Timpson said, but meaning must be made within the patron or artist themselves. “I believe art should be aesthetically pleasing as well as content-driven,” Timpson said. “If they can take away ‘Wow, that’s a beautiful painting,’ that’s fine. If they want to be changed by it, only they can change themselves.”

mid the chaos, Ellie Edwards quietly repeats the steps she has practiced for weeks. In four days, she will perform these steps in front of hundreds. Edwards is dancing the lead in Swan Lake. She’s perfecting the routine with her partner, Colin Ellis. She has spent upwards of six hours a day on this single performance while also trying to balance biology homework with finding a job after graduation. Most ballerinas have coaches barking instructions at them throughout the rehearsal. Stand up straighter. Point your toes. Go slower. But for Edwards, it’s different. Her natural talent and the hours she spends in the studio set her apart. Coaches critique less often. Underclassmen watch with wide eyes. “She looks so good,” a ballerina says from the audience. “She looks so beautiful.” The young ballerinas have been holding their breaths throughout her performance. They watch her take a few steps and hold her final pose. They finally exhale.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 beams — Edwards floated elegantly through her steps with Ellis. Ballet coach Violette Verdy worked with them on their technique. She stopped them mid-routine to offer pointers. Verdy demonstrates how to angle her back and adjust her shoulder blades. Edwards picks up on the tip quickly. It hardly ever took her a second time to get it right, but she does the steps again and again. “Sometimes even thinking of something differently, it will change everything,” Edwards said. Verdy and Edwards worked on the incline of her head for five minutes. In another pose, her hips were not aligned correctly. When she practices a routine, Edwards works until each step feels right. She performs again and again until the routine becomes natural. Establishing muscle memory helps with nerves before performing onstage. “You want it to be a habit,” she said. “You want to program that in and make sure it doesn’t leave.” When she first starts with a new ballet, she focuses on the counts and the choreography. Those first steps usually take a few hours before they become subconscious. Edwards and Ellis were selected from 10 couples to perform Swan Lake. Each couple learned the choreography until about three weeks ago when Edwards and Ellis were selected. Throughout the rest of the rehearsals, Edwards has focused on putting everything together before opening night. “You’re like a ballet cook,” she said. “How do you put all of these things in one moment and stay in that moment?” * * * JAMES BENEDICT | IDS
For many, injury can be
SPRING BALLET Student tickets: $10-$22 Regular tickets: $15-$28 8 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, the MAC a serious problem in ballet. Edwards said every dancer is hurting. Edwards struggles with a tight hamstring in her left leg. The injury requires her to stretch and strengthen the muscle everyday. “Your body is your instrument,” she said. Regular stretching, eating the right foods, getting enough sleep and drinking a lot of water are all requirements for ballet dancers. But balancing the physical requirements gets more difficult with academics mixed in. Each ballerina is required to have a second area of study outside of the Jacobs School of Music. Edwards chose biology after falling in love with the subject during her junior year of high school. When she first came to IU, she wanted to study biochemistry. But the department’s classes only met during her rehearsal times. Ballet dancers can’t take any classes between 11:30 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. They’re required to be in the studio training during those times. Biology was a flexible major that would work with her schedule, Edwards said. This May, she’ll graduate with both a ballet and biology background. That same month, she’ll hear back from about 25 different ballet companies she applied to. Her goal is to dance professionally for a few years before graduate school. She intends to pursue something biology-related. Edwards will work through the academic stress, the hyper-tight hamstring and the long hours of ballet rehearsal. But this weekend, she has to put all of that aside. At 8 p.m. Friday, the curtain will open and Edwards will step out in a white tutu and pink tights. Hundreds of eyes will watch her attempt perfection.
Grammy winner to perform at BCT From IDS reports
Vocalist Bobby McFerrin can count the number of Grammy awards he has on two hands, but just barely. The 10-time Grammy winner will take his talent to Bloomington on April 6 when he will perform at IU Vocal Jazz Ensembles’ upcoming concert. IU Vocal Jazz Ensemble I and IUnison, under the direction of Duane Davis and Ly Wilder, will play first, followed by McFerrin’s performance with both the ensembles and the audience, according to a Jacobs School of Music press release. The concert will occur 8 p.m. April 6 in the Buskirk-
Chumley Theater. In 1988, McFerrin’s a cappella song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” Bobby became a hit. McFerrin Other career highlights include collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma and Vienna Philharmonic. McFerrin is known as a laid-back performer and has walked onto the stage of some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls barefoot, according to the release. He has also encouraged a new generation of a cappella singers as well as the beatbox movement. “I try not to ‘perform’
onstage,” McFerrin said in the release. “I try to sing the way I sing in my kitchen, because I just can’t help myself. I want audiences to leave the theatre and sing in their own kitchens the next morning. I want to bring audiences into the incredible feeling of joy and freedom I get when I sing.” He has completed 14 albums, the latest of which is entitled “spirityouall” and is a bluesy, upbeat recording, according to the release. Coming from a family of singers, McFerrin comes by his talent naturally. His father, Robert McFerrin Sr., was a Metropolitan Opera baritone, and his mother, Sara McFerrin, was a soprano soloist and voice teacher. Bobby
Mathers now home to state arts program From IDS reports
Indiana’s traditional arts program, which was previously housed at IU, now calls the Mathers Museum of World Cultures its home. Traditional Arts Indiana has been a longtime collaborator with the museum, according to an IU press release. Traditional Arts Indiana is a campus-wide unit administered in the Office of the Vice Provost for Research that began in 1998 to increase public consciousness of Indiana’s traditional arts practices. “Almost every state has a traditional folk art program — many are part of the state’s arts council,” said Jon Kay, director of Traditional Arts Indiana, in the release. “Less common is for such a folk arts program to be housed on a university campus with access to so many interdisciplinary collaboration opportunities and technological resources.” Kay is also a 2013 Archie Green Fellow, an honor given by the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center, according to the University. Although the organization has moved out of the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology, its status as an IU partnership with the Indiana Arts Commission remains unchanged. Traditional Arts Indiana was the inaugural exhibitor in the Wells Library Scholar’s Commons this past fall. The exhibit showcased the work of artisans statewide in a display named “Hoosier Handmade,” according to the University. The organization has also created a webinar series that covers topics from memory and aging to how to mount an exhibit, which has become popular, according to
McFerrin played clarinet as a child but started his music career as a pianist when he was 14, according to the release. McFerrin has improvised on national television, sung melodies without words and extemporaneously invented parts for 60,000 choral singers in a stadium in Germany, according to the release. “I can’t sing everything at once,” McFerrin said in the release. “But I can hint at it so the audience hears even what I don’t sing.” Kathrine Schulze

Many of these innovations — such as hosting humanities webinars and placing low-cost traveling exhibitions in almost every Indiana county — are perfectly aligned with the goals identified in the museum’s and the campus’ strategic plans.” The organization received the 2013 Governor’s Arts Award as well as a fellowship from the Library of Congress. The fellowship is to research occupational traditions of park rangers, according to the University. Currently, Traditional Arts Indiana is working on “Indiana Folk Arts: 200 Years of Tradition and Innovation,” a project supported by the National Endowment of the Arts. It will consist of 14 panels that profile several different artists. Both undergraduates and graduate students can gain experience through research and creating exhibits, interviewing artists in Indiana and more, according to the release. “On top of the many other benefits that will flow from joining our efforts, I am enthusiastic about the many new ways that we will be able to involve students in a research and public programs endeavor that impacts every county in the state while also enriching life on the IU-Bloomington campus,” Jackson said in the release.

Freshman infielder hits 2 homers in victory By Michael Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org @MichaelHughes94
In the bottom of the third inning Tuesday against Louisville, freshman infielder Isaiah Pasteur hit a solo home run to left field to give IU a one-run lead. It was a line drive that was in the air for maybe five or six seconds before it caromed off the bullpen wall in left field. “They pitched me in, and I just turned on it and tried to hit it as hard as I could,” Pasteur said of his home run. It was the first home run of Pasteur’s IU career and just his third extra base hit. That is until the bottom of the fifth, when he did it again. Louisville starting pitcher Anthony Kidston threw the same inside fastball, Pasteur put the same swing on the ball and it ended up in the exact same spot — bouncing around in the left field bullpen. Except this time, there was a runner on base. Pasteur’s two home runs and three RBIs supplied all the offense in No. 24 IU’s 3-0 win against No. 7 Louisville. “It’s a little unexpected, but he does have some power,” IU Coach Chris Lemonis said. “He just hasn’t shown it a lot in the games, so I hope he keeps showing it.” Pasteur said he hit a few home runs in high school. He even had a two-home run game during his time at Winters Mill High School. But for the most part Pasteur has always been more of

a gap-to-gap power guy, he said. He just puts the ball in play and lets his electrifying speed take care of the rest. This was his approach in his third plate appearance against Louisville, when he drew a nine-pitch, two-out walk with nobody on base in the seventh inning. This kind of situation presents a different opportunity for players who have already homered twice in a
game. If he puts all his effort trying to hit his third home run and weakly flies out, it’s not a big deal because there was no imminent scoring threat. But Pasteur is not most players. Pasteur took some pitches and stayed patient. When he got two strikes against him, he shortened his swing and worked the count full. After a couple more foul balls, he took ball
four low and inside to give IU a two out baserunner. The next batter, freshman outfielder Laren Eustace, singled to left field. Then senior second baseman Casey Rodrigue was hit by a pitch. If Pasteur only tried to hit a home run the inning likely would have been finished. Instead, Pasteur just did what he could to get on base and keep the inning going. Even though the next
batter, sophomore Craig Dedelow, grounded out to end the inning, the opportunity was there to add to IU’s lead, an opportunity not possible without Pasteur’s maturity. This game, arguably the best of Pasteur’s collegiate career, also came after what was arguably his worst, Sunday against Penn State. Pasteur went 0-for-4 and made three errors at shortstop in IU’s 13-7 loss against the Nit-
TRACK AND FIELD
IU athletes to compete down south By Taylor Lehman email@example.com | @trlehman_IU
It’s here. After a three-week preparation period, the outdoor season has arrived in a whirlwind of anticipation for the Hoosiers as they take on their first outdoor meets this week. The majority of the IU roster will travel to Arizona State to compete in the inaugural Pac-12 vs. Big Ten Invitational while four select athletes, juniors Sophie Gutermuth, Terry Batemon, Dylan Anderson and Stephen Keller, will participate in one of the largest relay events in the nation, the Texas Relays. “We felt like those four athletes earned the right to compete in the best situation as possible,” IU Coach Ron Helmer said. “Dylan and Stephen need a multi, and we have had success with our pole vaulters in Texas before.” The Texas Relays, which take place at the University of Texas in Austin, stretch over a span of four days between today and Saturday and feature over 30 schools nationwide. Eight Hoosiers competed in last season’s Texas Relays, highlighted by a women’s long jump victory from thenfreshman Ari Nelson and a third-place finish by thensophomore Gutermuth. Keller and Anderson finished 12th and 13th respectively, while Batemon, who redshirted his sophomore outdoor season due to a
hamstring injury, missed last season’s Texas Relays. “I’m really excited to be competing in outdoors,” Batemon said. “My legs are feeling great, and I’m feeling fast and strong. I feel like I can have a really good outdoor season, starting from Texas on.” Batemon has been fighting his way back to form since the end of the 2014 indoor season when he suffered two pulled hamstrings, as he pulled both the upper and lower muscles in his right leg. He set his overall personal record in the Big Ten Indoor Championships in February with a height of 5.27 meters. “I just want to keep getting better,” Batemon said. Keller and Anderson will begin decathlon competition at 11 a.m. Wednesday and finish Thursday afternoon, while Gutermuth and Batemon will participate in the women’s and men’s pole vault Friday and Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile on Saturday in Tempe, Ariz., the remaining athletes on the roster will go head-to-head with athletes of the West Coast. “It’s always exciting to face athletes that I don’t know,” said Nelson, who will not compete in Texas Relays but will jump at Arizona State. “I don’t know their marks or how they jump, so I can just go in and do my thing.” Nelson jumped to victory as a freshman in 2014

Tuesday, Pasteur went 2-for-2 with three RBIs and a clean nine innings in the field at shortstop. “He’s an ultra-talented player, and he has a chance to play this game for a long time,” Lemonis said. “But he’s a freshman, so the game has been tough in some ways, and he’s had to fight it, and it was nice to see him fight back a little bit tonight.”
IU Pac-12 vs. Big Ten Invitational Today through Saturday, Austin, Texas into this outdoor season,” Nelson said. “I feel like I don’t need to fear any of the better athletes because I have proven myself and keep getting better marks.”
After losing two of three in its first regular season series against Rutgers last weekend, IU will travel to Louisville, Ky., for a single game series against Louisville. Since the two programs first met in 2001, Louisville has dominated the all-time series 13-3. However, the Hoosiers won the previous matchup last year with an 8-3 victory. The Hoosiers are hoping to narrow that series gap with a win today behind the red-hot bat of sophomore Erin Lehman. Lehman has secured at least one base hit in 12 of the last 16 games and recorded two hits in eight of those games. In that stretch, she is batting just more than .500 with 24 hits, 14 runs scored and 11 RBIs. The freshmen have also been stepping up for the Hoosiers by solidifying themselves as everyday starters. Freshmen Rachel O’Malley and Mena Fulton had big weekends for IU. The pair combined for nine hits, six runs and five RBIs. The Hoosiers have been scoring a lot of their runs lately via the long ball. IU ranks fourth in the Big Ten with 28 home runs this
IU (10-22) at Louisville (18-8) 6 p.m. today, Louisville, Ky. season and are led by senior Shannon Cawley with seven and junior Kelsey Dotson with six. To put that number in perspective, the Hoosiers hit 30 home runs all of last season. With more than a month and a half of softball left to be played, the Hoosiers are well on pace to break that mark, as nine different players have gone the distance this season. Although the bats are starting to heat up for the Hoosiers, it has been the stellar pitching from seniors Lora Olson and Miranda Tamayo that has kept IU in many of its games. Olson currently ranks first in the conference with 22 games started, while the Hoosiers as a team rank second in the Big Ten with 158 strikeouts this year. Olson, with 72, and Tamayo, with 53, both rank in the top 13 in the conference in strikeouts. The Hoosiers are 5-5 in their last 10 games and have an overall record of 10-22, including a 1-2 record in the Big Ten and a 5-3 record at home. The radio broadcast will be on IUHoosiers.com, and first pitch is at 6 p.m.

FILLING IN THE GAPS IU spring position previews: linebacker acker By Sam Beishuizen Beis firstname.lastname@example.org | @Sam_Beishuizen sbeishui@india
IU Coach Co Kevin Wilson used the 2013 and 2014 recruiting classes to add some much-needed talent mu and depth at the linebacker position. A handful hand of those young players — highlighted by juSimmons and sophonior TJ Sim more Tegray Scales — saw Teg playing time early. valuable p Now se set to prepare for their second and an third years with the program, progra youth is becomand less of an excuse ing less an for players like Scales and Simmons. They e project to anchor a group of linebackers still searching searchin for consistency after switching to defensive sw coordinator Brian Knorr’s coordin 3-4 b base defense last season. season Graduated linebacker Gr David Cooper leaves the biggest hole to fill afbigg ter appearing in all 12 games in 2014, where ga he h spent most of his time alongside Simt mons in the middle. m One O of the vocal leaders and unofficial team barber, Cooper was fourth on the team with 60 tackles last year. The Hoosiers will also look Ho to replace the 53 tackles, six pass break breakups and two sacks from Flo Hardin and Kyle KenH nedy’s nine nin tackles. Spring camp should give Knorr and linebackers coach William Inge a better idea I of whose playing time will increase. Junior Clyde Newton and sophomores Marcus Oliver sophomor

and Greg Gooch are re three candidates who immediately mediately jump out considering ng their slightly limited eff ect last ffect season. Oliver was granted d a medical redshirt after suff ering an ffering ACL injury against Missouri. He appeared to be fitting into his role well last season n with 10 tackles in just three games ames before being sidelined the he rest of the season. Assuming his recovery overy has gone to plan, Oliver has as the potential to return to that hat earlyseason form and compete mpete for one of the starting spots pots with Newton and Gooch, h, whom Inge applauded throughout roughout the season last year forr making strides on the field and nd in the film room. To-be freshman Reakwon Jones will be joining the linebackers’ room for the 2015 season, but the 247Sports 47Sports 3-star prospect won’t ’t be in Bloomington until summer. mmer. Jones’ 6-foot-2, 205-pound 5-pound frame and quick playing ying style are comparable to Scales, cales, but the coaching staff won’t n’t have a better idea of how he fits until he joins the team laterr on. Replacing the 113 13 tackles — 10.5 for loss — between Cooper and Hardin will certainly be IU’s most daunting task heading into 2015. 5. The past two seasons ons have seen the Hoosiers’ linebacker nebacker position become onee of the defense’s biggest strengths. trengths. With a number of experienced erienced young players set to take on even larger roles in the upcoming season, thiss spring will show if IU’s depth epth can overcome its losses.
