hanges to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will set higher standards for stores and broaden opportunities for consumers in 2017. The new initiatives, announced last month, will be implemented throughout the year. Beginning May 17, stores applying for SNAP authorization must stock a minimum of 84 eligible food stamp items. This is up from the long-standing requirement of 12 eligible items. The approximately 265,0000 stores across the nation already receiving food stamps from customers and SNAP benefits have
until Jan. 17, 2018, to comply. About 700,000 people in Indiana received food stamps as of October 2016. This is down more than 11 percent from nearly 800,000 recipients in October 2015. Indiana is seeing one of the largest proportional decreases of people going on food stamps across the nation. About 8,700 people, or 4,000 households, received food stamps in Monroe County as of November. The Indiana and Monroe County USDA offices did not respond to calls Tuesday. Names of stores and owners that break SNAP rules will be made public starting Jan. 17. Item eligibility is based on fulfilling staple food categories such

The sun had barely risen Tuesday morning when officials from the United States Navy and IU met in the Varsity Club Suite of Memorial Stadium. The visit was organized by the USS Indiana Commissioning Committee, the group tasked with informing the public about the new Virginia-class nuclear submarine of the same name. The ship, scheduled for commissioning next year, will be the fourth U.S. Navy vessel to take the name USS Indiana and will be the sixteenth submarine of the Virginia-class, according to the commissioning committee. Memorial Stadium was primarily chosen as a venue for the event because of the USS Indiana exhibition on the west side of the stadium, where parts of the World War II battleship USS Indiana are. The meeting was attended by U.S. Navy Cmrd. Jesse Zimbauer and Master Chief Petty Officer Lafrederick Herring, who will control the submarine once it is commissioned. Representatives from the offices of Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana, and Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana, were also in attendance. The submarine will be longer than used driven during World War II. Zimbauer said the ship is about as long as the field below the room from post to post. “Nobody could kick a football from one side to the other,” he said. The submarine is powered by nuclear energy and will not have to be refueled for its entire lifetime. The ship is expected to be in service for 32 years. Assistant Vice President for Strategic Partnerships Kirk White said the World War II USS Indiana was significant to IU and to the state of Indiana on multiple levels. He referenced Memorial Stadium, the Indiana Memorial Union and the new Memorial Hall as some of IU’s many commitments to the armed services and those who have given their lives for our freedoms.

IU’s comeback against Michigan falls short on road in Ann Arbor
Hoosiers drop third conference matchup

The Hoosiers have had plenty of answers on the offensive end all season long and most of Tuesday night. Whether it is IU junior guard Tyra Buss, junior forward Amanda Cahill or senior guard Alexis Gassion, the offense has consistently been there. Issues have arisen on the defensive end, though, and that showed Tuesday. When IU needed stops on defense in succession Tuesday night, it was not able to get them and fell, 78-74, in the Crisler Center to the Michigan Wolverines. “I thought we played hard,” IU assistant coach Rhet Wierzba said on the IU radio postgame show on WHCC 105.1 FM. “I just don’t think we defended as well as we needed to. They had three players score almost 20 on us. That’s a recipe for not a very good game.”

Sophomore forward OG Anunoby’s monster slam dunk with fewer than 10 seconds left and IU men’s basketball down three points wasn’t enough to overcome Maryland on Tuesday night. Anunoby’s slam cut the IU deficit to one point and after two made free throws by Maryland on the other end, junior guard Robert Johnson was able to square up a good look from beyond the arc with the clock winding down. Johnson’s triple was just off the mark, and although the Hoosiers were wearing the same “Courage” uniforms tonight as they did against Kansas in the season opener, the junior guard couldn’t create some last-second
magic and push overtime. The Hoosiers fell to the Terrapins, 7572, and to 11-6 overall and 1-3 in Big Ten play. “We wouldn’t trade anything about the shot at the end with Robert, it just didn’t go,” IU Coach Tom Crean said on the IU basketball postgame radio show. “I’m proud of the way they battled, big time and everyone else should be. They’re fighting, this is one tough atmosphere to be in right here, and an incredible atmosphere.” The guards shined for the Hoosiers on Tuesday night by knocking down multiple big shots when it mattered. Despite picking up two fouls within the first two minutes of the game and sitting for a seven-minute span in the first half, junior guard James Blackmon Jr. didn’t let the foul troubles get to him.

$30 million donated to School of Medicine From IDS reports
The IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis was the recent recipient of a $30 million donation by Dr. Donald Brown, a 1985 graduate of the IU School of Medicine. The money will be used by the school to help fund the Brown Center for Immunotherapy. This donation is the largest any alumnus has given to the medical school until this point. Brown said in a press release he felt the development of a center for immunotherapy was the right choice for the School of Medicine. “Immunology is the right place for a big investment,” Brown said in the release. “It is clear to me that this is the most exciting area in all of science.” The center will be home to research to develop innovative strategies and plans for curing at least one type of cancer and slowing the progression of chronic diseases. “Hopefully my contribution can push us over the top to do some really exciting things,” Brown said. Dr. Jay Hess, the Dean of the School of Medicine and Vice President for University Clinical Affairs, said the

field of immunotherapy has been evolving rapidly and he and the School of Medicine were already working on the program when Brown approached them. “This, I must say, was out
of the blue,” Hess said after receiving the donation. Hess said $13 million of the fund will be used to for five endowed chairs for the immunotherapy center and will help fund the research
of those who eventually take those chairs. The center will also place some of the money in a startup fund for research into cancer and degenerative disease treatments. Hess said the
center will be working on innovative ways to combat these diseases. “It doesn’t make sense for us to do what everyone else is doing,” Hess said. “Our goal is to make
healthcare better.” The new center and the money will also provide a boost the Indiana economy by working with the private sector to help form new companies and improve old ones, according to the press release. “I am confident that, through his transformational gift, Don is catapulting the IU School of Medicine and state of Indiana to the leading edge of this vital area of research,” IU President Michael McRobbie said. Brown has been an entrepreneur in Indiana since the late 1980s when he cofounded Software Artistry Inc., a customer support software company. He then left to establish Interactive Intelligence, which was later acquired for $1.4 billion by Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories Inc. on Dec. 1, 1994. “I’ve always wanted to build teams and do really interesting things. The wealth has been a byproduct of that, and I’d like to be able to use that to do things that benefit not just me and not just my family but society as a whole,” Brown said. Dominick Jean
IUSA to distribute off-campus housing surveys soon By Joy Burton firstname.lastname@example.org | @joybur10
With the hope of aiding IU students in the house-hunting process, an off-campus housing survey by IU Student Association member Kevin Mohsenzadeh will be distributed to a portion of the student body in a few weeks. Mohsenzadeh, an IU freshman, began his student government career by joining the fall freshman internship program at IUSA. While interning for President Sara Zaheer, Mohsenzadeh took up the task of completing the off-campus housing survey. The final product won the approval of the University Survey Committee in time for it to be distributed spring semester. The survey will go out to 20 percent of students living off campus and will gather specific information about these students’ residences, Mohsenzadeh said in an email. “Students should expect to see demographic and background questions, followed by more specific questions about the area they live in and the pricing of their unit,”

students,” Mohsenzadeh said. Zaheer said the results of the survey would be collected in a report that would then be used to match students with community resources to aid them in their housing search. The survey is meant to be for students’ gain rather than that of the surveyors, Mohsenzadeh said.
“Students will benefit from the survey by being able to make better informed decisions in regards to finding off-campus housing, and they might also be primed to think about new questions the next time they are looking to rent a property,” Mohsenzadeh said. Zaheer said IUSA feels improving the process of finding students a home at
IU is a priority. “A big factor in college affordability is living costs, and we wanted to create a way for students to share some insight with each other and have another resource to take into account when making housing decisions,” Zaheer said. Mohsenzadeh said he agreed with Zaheer. He said saving money is important and that he also wants to save students time. “In the end, we hope the survey will serve as a valuable tool for our student body that also provides necessary feedback which will be used to help connect students to current University resources that are currently underutilized,” Mohsenzadeh said. The project will give students the ability to find the right house for their financial situations, Mohsenzadeh said. Mohsenzadeh said the process of completing the survey was tedious and involved finding questions from other university surveys, adjusting them and adding other questions that were relevant to IU and Bloomington. “After finalizing the word-
Religious ideals boost growth of grassroot nonproﬁts From IDS reports
IU researcher Allison Schnable has discovered a major growth in small, grassroots international nongovernmental organizations called GINGOs, according to a press release from Dec. 13, 2016. These nonprofit groups enter impoverished areas in continents like Africa and Asia to provide humanitarian relief. Though they subscribe to some ideas of faith-based missionary work, they refuse to be termed faith-based organizations, according to the release. These organizations use ideas such as sharing the love of god, praying and serving others. However, the groups are not restricted to any particular faith; rather, they
adopt common ideas shared by many religions, according to the release. “These grassroots groups based in the U.S. rely on volunteer labor and small contributions and have tiny budgets,” Schnable said in the release. “They largely serve Africa and Asia, and their work is made possible by broad cell-phone coverage, free email, cheap container shipping and international flights.” The United Nations Children’s Fund and World Vision, two traditional charities, are no longer the only options for those wishing to donate. Since 1990 more than 10,000 GINGOs have been started, according to Schnable’s research. She referred to the growth as re-
markable. In her research, Schnable analyzed 6,575 websites and discovered 25 percent of them reference their work from a Christian perspective. She frequently saw phrases like “God’s will” and “showing God’s love.” Her research shows using a trusted religious institution as a basis for humanitarian work provides legitimacy for an organization. Schnable was able to determine 46 percent of GINGOs are affiliated with a religious congregation like Educate Tanzania, a group based in Minnesota that builds schools in Tanzania. Educate Tanzania works with, among others, a network of Lutheran churches. This network allows the organization to
Students throughout the United States are experiencing tuition hikes and increased student debt, but economist and certified public accountant Tyler Richardson published a video and book and said he believes the hikes are not for the reason many people think. Richardson said students are sometimes convinced colleges are raising tuition
to cover for cuts in government funding, but statistics from the U.S. Department of Education show a different side of the issue. “Truth is colleges receive more money from the government now than ever before,” Richardson said. In 2005 the average funds granted by state appropriations and PELL grants for the ten largest public universities in the U.S., IU placing tenth, was only $519 million. In 2015 those same
contributions increased by 22 percent to $636 million. Despite increased government funding to IU, data projections from the U.S. Department of Education expect tuition to increase over the next four years. In 2016 the tuition at IU was about $37,676 for out-of-state students and $10,574 for in-state students. By 2020, out-of-state students will be paying approximately $4,015 more and even in-state students
will be paying an added $781. Student debt is also expected to increase. Average student loan debt for seniors graduating from IU in 2015 was $27,681, according to statistics compiled by the Institute for College Access and Success. “Think your college will tell you how they’re spending your money?” Richardson asked. “Probably not.”
tackle much larger projects than it could on its own. These organizations also allow members of several religious faiths to fulfill their duties of donating to the poor or giving alms. “Despite all these linkages the grassroots groups are steadfastly not what we think of as religious organizations,” Schnable said in the release. “Their quick growth should reshape our idea of the role of religion in development aid.” The Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion published Schnable’s research in an article titled “What Religion Affords Grassroots NGOs: Frames, Networks, Modes of Action.” Cody Thompson

ing of the questions, we submitted the survey to the approval committee fairly easily, and it was approved within a few weeks,” Mohsenzadeh said. When asked whether he was surprised the survey was approved, Mohsenzadeh said in a way he didn’t know what to expect from them because the survey committee is new and rarely receives student submissions. Regardless, he said he felt certain in the project. “I expected the survey to be approved because I was confident that we made a strong argument for how it would be beneficial for many people across our student body,” Mohsenzadeh said. Though Mohsenzadeh completed the project, the survey had been in the works since before Mohsenzadeh was even a student at IU. He was excited to be a part of the process, Mohsenzadeh said. “When I was approached this year about helping complete it, I was immediately intrigued because I thought it would be something that students just like myself could benefit from for years to come,” Mohsenzadeh said.

Obama gives ﬁnal address of his presidency From IDS reports
In his farewell address, President Obama reflected on his term’s beginnings and ends and his accomplishments and shortcomings. More than anything, he urged citizens to work toward more solidarity in politics. Obama spoke in Chicago on Tuesday night in the last speech of his eightyear presidency. Presidentelect Donald Trump will be inaugurated Jan. 20. “Democracy does not require uniformity, but democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity,” Obama said. “The idea that for all our outward differences, we’re all in this together, that we rise and fall as one.” Obama summarized what he said were his administration’s proudest accomplishments, including reversing the 2007 recession, shutting down Iran’s nuclear weapons program, passing his health care law and the legalization of same-sex marriage. He also outlined what he

said he considered some of the United States’ most pervasive threats, such as political cynicism, racial divisions and rapidly occurring climate change, to democracy. “How we meet these chal-
lenges to our democracy will determine our ability to educate our kids, create good jobs and protect our homeland,” Obama said. “In other words, it will determine our future.”
The audience rose up with boos and chants of “Four more years” when Obama referred to Trump’s coming inauguration, but Obama quickly silenced the crowd. He said his administration
would aid a smooth transition for Trump’s team and called the inauguration’s peaceful transfer of power a hallmark of democracy. “For every two steps forward, it often feels we take
one step back, but the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion,” he said. He spoke in honor of sacrifices of all kinds by United States troops, working families, immigrants, women and scientific pioneers by saying citizens of all kinds could fight against both external aggression and internal divisions. He thanked his wife, Michelle, and children, Malia and Sasha, for their love, support and achievements in the years before and during his presidency. He thanked Vice President Joe Biden for his work and friendship. Obama finished his address by expounding again on unity and citizen involvement. “Our democracy is threatened whenever we take it for granted,” he said. “All of us, regardless of party, should be throwing ourselves into the task of rebuilding our democratic institutions.” Sarah Gardner

Hollingsworth proposes Congress term limits bill From IDS reports
For his first piece of legislation, Rep. Trey Hollingsworth, R-9th District, has proposed a bill to address term limits. House Joint Resolution 23 would make an amendment to the Constitution by limiting the number of terms a member of Congress can serve in the House of Representatives to four and the Senate to two. There are currently no limits on how many terms Senators and Representatives can serve. Hollingsworth said this bill is his top priority, according to a press release from Hollingsworth’s office. “I made a promise to my fellow Hoosiers that my highest priority in Congress will be working to
return our government to one that is by the people and for the people,” Hollingsworth said. “I am upholding my commitment to lead the fight for term limits to ensure that Members of Congress serve constituents as public servants.” The bill will be entered into the Congressional Record and assigned to a committee for consideration before the full House and Senate can vote on it. “As all Hoosiers know, our actions speak louder than our words,” Hollingsworth said. “That is why I made sure that my first official act was to draft this important piece of legislation that Hoosiers desperately wish to see enacted.” Melanie Metzman
State lawmakers and Indiana’s new governor have laid out their agendas for the 2017 legislative session. The agendas emphasize expanding funds for infrastructure improvements and preschool programs and tackling the drug epidemic. The session began last week. Gov. Eric Holcomb revealed his five-part plan last Thursday. In addition to developing roads and bridges and attacking the drug problem in Indiana, he wants to make the state a magnet for jobs and develop its workforce. This legislative session bills will be brought before a legislature with a Republican majority in both the House and the Senate. Here are some of the issues to watch for this session. A drug prevention director When discussing the drug crisis in the state, Holcomb announced he’d create a new position to tackle the epidemic. Jim McClelland, retired president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana Inc. will be the new executive director for drug prevention, treatment and enforcement. Holcomb said curbing the drug problem is one issue he feels very passionately about, and it saddens him to read news about victims of the epidemic. “If I only had one wish left, it would be that we could change the trajectory,” Holcomb said. Infrastructure funding State legislators have also highlighted funding for road improvements as a main focal point of the 2017 session. Sen. Luke Kenley, R-Noblesville, said the state will need about $350 million per year to finish its current infrastructure projects and another
$500 to $600 million per year in order to upgrade important roads. Indianapolis is within a 24-hour drive of 75 percent of the U.S. population, so it’s important its roads are updated, Kenley said. He said both I-65 from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky, and I-70 from Terre Haute, Indiana, to Richmond, Indiana, should be targets of new funds. Kenley wrote Senate Bill 262, which allows the Indiana finance authority permission to issue bonds or notes for transportation projects, the total amount of which cannot exceed $500 million. Funding Indiana’s Roads for a Stronger Safer Tomorrow Task Force, a legislative committee Kenley belongs to, suggested updating the gas and diesel fuel tax as a way to raise funds. Kenley said tolls may also need to be installed on updated roads once they’re finished. The updated roads will be worth the extra money, Kenley said. “We’ve spent a couple years trying to get ourselves prepared for this,” he said. When outlining infrastructure goals for the legislative session, Holcomb mentioned any method of obtaining revenue is a possibility at this point, but doing nothing isn’t an option. “The only thing that’s off the table, in our mind, is a ‘none of the above’ approach,” Holcomb said. “We have to address this.” Preschool programs Holcomb said he wants to double the state’s investment in pre-kindergarten education. Rep. Robert Behning, R-District 91, wrote House Bill 1330, which changes the eligibility requirements of the state’s On My Way Pre-K program in an attempt to expand it. The program gives grants to low-income families with 4-year-olds to allow them access to higher-quality pre-kindergarten education.
The original five counties, Allen, Lake, Marion, Jackson and Vanderburgh, selected for the pilot have done a good job of rolling out the program, said Behning, who is the chair of the House Education committee. Anecdotal evidence shows the program is positively affecting preschoolers, but it’s too soon for data, he said. Regardless, he said it’s important to expand the program throughout the state to whichever counties have interest and capacity. As the bill is developed, Behning said legislators will be able to determine counties where the program can be expanded. The counties chosen will ideally be of varying geographical and overall makeup. “A lot of us truly believe that preschool will make a difference,” Behning said. Continuing abortion restrictions A bill authored by Rep. Curt Nisly, R-Goshen, would completely outlaw abortion in the state if passed. House Bill 1134, known as the “Protection at Conception” bill, had its first reading Jan. 9 and was referred to the Committee on Public Policy, according to the Indiana General Assembly website. Nisly’s bill would allow discretion of how to charge someone who performs an abortion up to a prosecutor. Hoosiers for Life, an advocacy organization that promotes anti-abortion bills, brought the idea to Nisly and helped him write the legislation. Nisly said he’s been getting positive feedback from Hoosiers around the state about the bill, and other legislators support HB 1134, too. However, House and Senate leaders have balked at promoting the legislation, and Hoosiers for Life founder Amy Schlichter said she’s afraid the general assembly won’t give it the time of day. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky released a statement in response to the
legislation. The organization said it is “appalled at the complete and total lack of empathy that Rep. Nisly has shown Hoosier women by filing an unconstitutional abortion ban bill.” “Government intrusion into our doctors’ offices must end,” said Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of PPINK, in the Jan. 10 release. Raising the age of consent Rep. Karlee Macer, D-Indianapolis, has been working on a bill that would raise the age of consent in Indiana from 16 to 18. The goal of the bill is to punish 50- and 60-year-olds taking advantage of teenagers and not to punish or interfere with “young love,” Macer said. The bill, which Macer said would be published on the Indiana General Assembly website soon, would not affect Indiana’s “Romeo and Juliet” law, which allows 14- and 15year olds to have non-forced sexual activity with someone no more than four years older than them. Macer said the idea for the bill was brought to her by detectives and former attorney general Greg Zoeller. It’s an attempt to reduce instances of human trafficking and sexual assault in the state. “Unfortunately our children are being targeted by pimps, by people who want to take advantage of them,” Macer said. “The last thing I want to do is be in people’s bedrooms, but I do want to protect children.” In addition to raising the age of consent, the bill would also create the criminal offense of “indiscretion,” which would occur if someone at least 23 years old had sex with someone at least 16 but younger than 18. Child seduction would no longer be considered a Level 6 felony, punishable by up to two and a half years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. “This is an issue that is overwhelming our state right now,” Macer said.

tirely different world we can immerse ourselves in. When I have a tough day at school or feel generally burnt out, it helps me to crack open a book and unwind for an hour or two. More students need some sort of healthy stress relief, and reading is an excellent outlet. Plus, if my English teachers have taught me anything, being a better reader leads to being a better writer. It may even help your pesky English grade if you sit and read something completely uneducational. So, McRobbie, if you’re reading, I wish that you’d encourage our students to engage with the past in order to learn about themselves in the present.
The men who stormed the beaches of Normandy under a hail of bullets and shrapnel are heroes. Martyrs thrown to the lions are heroes. Meryl Streep preaching on stage at the Golden Globes to a friendly audience is not a hero. Contrary to what Twitter at-large believed, Meryl Streep does not belong in the category of those above. Heroism requires that one faces adversity and challenges and perhaps sacrifices something of value for the greater good. Streep’s screech accomplishes none of these. Instead, all this sort of rhetoric accomplishes is further alienating the Liberal agenda from the average American. This issue should have been resolved after the election. Hollywood should have learned, after making dozens of videos propagandizing for Hillary Clinton, that lobbing every “-ist” slur at middle America is not an effective method of persuasion. The reaction to Streep’s speech is emblematic of this self-righteousness that characterizes Hollywood and the gentry liberalism that has come to represent the elite of the left. Self-congratulatory speeches to audiences with the net worth of mid-sized countries are lauded for their courage. We are treated to soliloquies about the bravery of individuals that drone on about fashionable issues. This moral grandstanding and condescension must end. Those with a soapbox should have learned that the rest of the United States is tired of being shouted at and patronized. Faced with a field of 17 candidates including governors, senators, and experienced statesmen, Republican voters chose the loudest middle finger to such elites they could find. Subsequently the American people affirmed that choice despite the apocalyptic messages Hollywood put out about that man. If these individuals actually wanted to understand those they have shown such disdain for, something that would assist their industry’s bottom line as well, some soul searching would have been undertaken after the election. Instead, we get the perpetual Fukushima-level meltdown we’ve witnessed since Nov. 8. We get efforts to abolish the Electoral College. We get tears on prime-time broadcasts. We get canceled college classes. We get safety pins. God, the safety pins. In short, we get the message that average Americans are just too stupid or bigoted to make the correct choice. Ignorance or hatred are the only possible explanations for why Americans might disagree with Matt Damon. This is the most denigrating part of all. Ordinary Americans are not even given the respect of one who made a rational political choice someone else disagreed with. They are just bigots to be scoffed and scorned. People who identify themselves as right-wing are tired of the name calling that the people like Streep have perpetuated. If the left wants to win again, this needs to end. Certainly for the cohesion of the country it is not healthy or sustainable to have diametrically opposed segments of the population that refuse to engage one another in important civic matters. Prominent Liberals have some work to do.

Norway moves away from FM radio Government officials are making the move to digital radio transmissions What’s better: 22 highquality radio stations or five outdated radio stations that are $23.3 million more expensive? Norway is currently facing that question, and the choice is obvious. FM radio, although a pioneer in audio broadcasting since its invention in 1933, is now archaic. Because Norwegians only have access to a handful of national FM channels, it’s only logical that starting this month the country of five million is the first to make the switch to an alldigital transmission. With that being said, this switch isn’t as drastic
as many let on. It’s not as though FM radio will disappear off air overnight with one push of a button. In order to make a smooth transition, Norway’s officials will let local radio stations have the right to continue broadcasting FM beyond the official switch-off in 2017. Many proponents of the migration from FM to digital note the FM transmissions are difficult to access in areas with mountains and fjords — natural elements that Norway has no shortage of. Although digital radio is far more reliable, NPR’s Frank Langfitt reported a
lot of Norwegians are uneasy of the switch. Two-thirds of Norway’s citizens are against ditching FM possibly because more than two million cars in Norway don’t have digital receivers. This cause for concern shows how Norway’s switch may be premature. So what’s the solution? Throw away two million otherwise good cars just because they don’t have Digital Audio Broadcasting capabilities? No, but Norwegian officials have to recognize that those cars won’t magically get digital receivers once the switch occurs.
Essentially, two out of every five Norwegians will be left in the dark if something isn’t done. Before you start gawking about why Norwegians even need FM radio stations anymore when they have the all-seeing invisible cloud, think about emergencies. What if, god forbid, your phone dies? FM radio is the old faithful of the digital age. We’re not predicting that Norway will end up in some type of alien apocalypse situation, but it’s important to note that in every single the-world-is-ending movie, the only piece of technology that still seems
to be working is radio. This clearly means it’s foolproof in real life. Jokes aside, the Editorial Board believes the logical solution would be for the Norwegian government to temporarily subsidize digital radio adapters in order to make them more affordable. This way citizens with older cars will still be able to access the 22 public radio stations on the digital network. CNN’s Emma LaceyBordeaux put it best when she said, “Video may have killed the radio star, but in Norway it’s digital that’s killing FM radio.”

Don’t buy a pet for the holidays if you aren’t committed to it The holidays are a busy time for animal shelters with people coming to adopt animals as Christmas gifts. What some people may not know is that there is a second wave of shelter visitors and phone calls that begin as early as the first of the year. At this point, many families have gotten a chance to spend some quality time with their newly adopted companion. For some, a bond was made in those few weeks, and that companion found its fur-ever home. For others the happy feeling of a new pet has worn off, and they’ve realized that adopting a new pet is not as easy as it sounds.
In an interview with CBS 4, Connie Swaim with IndyHumane said that her call volume has already started to increase and will continue to increase in the coming weeks. Though many of these Christmas adoptions work out, some are not so lucky. This is what new pet owners need to understand. There is almost always a solution to any problem you are having. It might not be cheap, and it might not be easy, but you owe it to this animal to try and make it work. When these furry friends are brought home and the holiday cheer has worn off, their owners may find it easier to take them back rather than deal with the is-
sues that arise. I was in the same position when I adopted my kitten Sadie from the Bloomington shelter last year. When I adopted Sadie, I had no idea she was sick. Every night she would cry until I got out of bed to hold her. I tried everything, but some nights I just wanted to rip my hair out. I would be lying if I said the thought of taking her back to the shelter didn’t cross my mind during those sleepless nights. Thankfully, after multiple trips to the vet’s office, six doses of medicine, 10 packages of special diet food and months of care, the crying stopped. This wasn’t the cheapest solution. This wasn’t the
easiest solution, but I did everything in my power to keep her with me. “The best long-term outcome for most pets is if the owner will keep it and work on that behavior issue,” Swaim said. She tries to reassure families that keeping their pet in their home is better than taking it back to the shelter. This is not to say that you should keep an animal regardless of the circumstances. You should recognize, and most shelters will understand, that sometimes it simply isn’t the right fit. If this is the case, it might be in the animal’s best interest for the family to return it to the shelter.
Kathryn Meier is a senior in journalism.
If you have already adopted an animal, do everything you can to make it a part of your home. If you have tried everything you can, and it’s still not working out, do your best to find that animal a loving fur-ever home with someone else. You can avoid all of this by understanding the commitment that you make to these animals when you adopt them and making sure that when you adopt, you are ready to add another member to your family not just a gift under the tree. firstname.lastname@example.org
Millenials need to relearn the value of reading physical books In my last semester at IU, if I had a chance encounter with President Michael McRobbie on the sidewalk, I’d like to talk to him about my favorite pastime: reading. One of the biggest issues facing students across the country is that we don’t read books. Reading is out, podcasts are in. Millennials don’t appreciate the smell of a freshly printed book, the snap of the spine, the accomplished feeling of finishing the last page. Everything is in the cloud these days. It has our address books, our work emails, our family group messages and those embarrassing pictures you wish you hadn’t taken Friday night. We keep all the essentials in our pocket. You know what doesn’t fit in your pocket? A 700-page Tolstoy novel. Sure, there are e-books,
Kindles and iPads, but our attention spans are as tiny as our cell phones. There are thousands of distractions. We’re somehow able to keep up a 218day Snapchat streak. Despite this, we can’t sit down and read one chapter of a book. I’m not even talking about leisure reading. I’m talking about the multitude of textbooks and required readings we spend hundreds of dollars on at the beginning of the semester. Half the time we don’t even crack the spine of said books. Many of us think going to class is enough. Sure, the participation grade is a good incentive to do the readings and show up to class prepared, but many times kids are still able to participate and coast along through the class instead of actually immersing themselves in the texts. It’s hard to fully immerse
yourself in a class where you feel unmotivated to even read the front cover. We need to refocus ourselves in our love for learning. I am very aware that I sound like a total nerd. Don’t even get me started on the library. I got in touch with Andrew Asher, the assessment librarian for IU, and he informed me that in the 201516 fiscal year, IU Libraries had 334,684 items checked out. That amounts to 917 books per day. Although that seems like a relatively normal number for our large campus, note that the statistic accounts for items in general, not physical books. Asher couldn’t say how many of these items were books because the library doesn’t “catalog items this way — what constitutes a book is a complicated question for libraries.” So it’s a fishy question to
consider. Regardless of how many books are checked out or read across campus in one day, when observing individuals on campus, it’s clear that the number is in steep decline. On top of this, there are so many untapped resources we have on this campus. Take the Lilly Library. Most people attending IU have no idea Lilly houses the largest collection of mechanical puzzles in the world. Additionally, it has more than 7.5 million items that are readily available for your perusal in its manuscript collection. I realize it’s difficult to encourage people to pick up a newspaper that requires reading, but I’ll keep trying. I don’t know how else to incentivize the students to pick up a book and start the first chapter. Reading opens up an en-

KLEIN OF A BIG DEAL

JORDAN RIVER FORUM
House Republicans acting less than ethical If you say you trust our government to do its job and our politicians to supervise themselves, you will be hard-pressed to find like-minded company. A 2014 survey from the Pew Research Center found just 24 percent of Americans trusted the federal government to do the right thing all or most of the time. Apparently many Republicans in the House of Representatives felt differently when they proposed a plan to give their internal House Committee on Ethics ultimate authority in ethics investigations. The plan was met with widespread and vehement disapproval. Even President-elect Donald Trump remarked via Twitter, which he apparently still deems an appropriate primary source of communication, that Congress should instead focus on “tax reform, healthcare, and so many other things of far greater importance.” This feels like something I shouldn’t have to say, but we are approaching an era in which many things we take for granted will likely have to be defended. A system that suffers from occasional corruption is obviously better than a system so flawed that it essentially creates such corruption. Not only was the plan to alter operations of the watchdog Office of Congressional Ethics correctly rejected, it should never have existed in the first place. Here’s why. In its original form, the plan outlined in an amendment to H.Res.5 by Rep. Robert Goodlatte, R-Virginia, was to make the independently operating Office of Congressional Ethics “subject to the authority and direction of the Committee on Ethics.” That authority includes the ability for the internal House Committee on Ethics to command that the OCE “cease its review of any ma-

terial and refer such matter to the Committee.” Additionally, the OCE may not make any public statement or release material to the public or any external entity unless that information “has already been released by the Committee on Ethics or the release ... has been authorized by the Committee.” If it had passed, the bill would have given members of a governing body the responsibility to police other members of that same body. Given the nature of politicians to rely on mutual cooperation or even protection in exchange for legislative support, this would have been dangerous. It’s not hard to imagine that an internal investigative committee might be lenient in its examinations of the very people who constitute and work with that committee. In fact this flawed and frankly immoral bill was proposed because some representatives felt the OCE investigations were too harsh and necessitated congresspersons under accusation mount costly defense campaigns to protect their reputations. Goodlatte said in a statement from Jan. 2 that his amendment would improve “due process rights for individuals under investigation.” Perhaps the amendment’s measure to disallow anonymous complaints addresses this, but granting the House Committee more power does not. Goodlatte and his supporters say they will continue to fight for reform in ethics investigations. Though I am sure that these investigations can benefit from improvement, the proposed changes would have been a step in the wrong direction. firstname.lastname@example.org
REYNOLDS WRAP UP
Make more actionable goals this year This new year brings an onslaught of new things, like a new president of the United States, more movie sequels, a solar eclipse and a slew of New Year’s resolutions. These resolutions, however, are not much more than a collection of hopeful words that we often fail to act upon. To ensure real change happens for you in 2017, a new mentality will have to predicate successful resolutions. The mindset shift crucial to realizing any significant change in the new year is to focus on taking action. Action is quite a broad term — as indicated by Mariam-Webster’s 10 separate definitions for the word — but when using it today, I am speaking of working toward change and facing problems head on. This is not only a key to success but critical to leading a productive life. Think back to how you’ve solved problems in the past. Someone else did not come into your life, tell you to relax and then proceed to rectify all your difficulties. Instead you held yourself accountable and took clearly defined action toward change. Consider problems that are still plaguing you in 2017. For example, suppose you want to eat healthier. Have you taken steps like only keeping healthier foods in your home, or has your mindset simply been “I’ll start tomorrow”? The answer, more likely than not, is that you have not given your best effort to act.
Sam Reynolds is a sophomore in business.
You may have planned a road map to success or set mental notes of desired change, but without acting on these visions, you cannot achieve material progress towards your goals. It is important to understand if you do not actively work to fix your issues, they will never be fixed. While this sounds obvious, we often don’t act on our convictions — and the issue is getting worse. One indication is the nearly 45 percent, a 20year high, of the voting eligible population that did not cast ballots in the 2016 presidential election. Even with voting turnout seeing a record low for the past two decades, nonvoters seem to be complaining about the election more than ever before. It’s a perfect example of inaction’s detrimental results. These people failed to vote and were left complaining about a problem they did not try to solve. People frequently conceal inaction under the guise of empty excuses or being too busy. In 2017 learn from the lessons of the whining non-voters and all others who fail to act. Realize that all change begins with action, not from complaining. Understand that excuses make succeeding impossible — so stop using them. Taking accountability of your problems in the new year will not only make you better but inspire those around you to do the same. Let us make positive change in 2017. email@example.com

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
America should continue its support of Israel Your Editorial Board Opinion piece on Monday, January 9, was somewhat confusing because the headline had little to do with the substance that followed, which was extremely pro-Arab and mistaken on several points. In my opinion, the Kerry speech has not “hindered” Israel-US relations in any substantial way. Israel has solid support in the American public and in the Congress, and the Trump Administration may well take additional steps reinforce Israel’s position as American’s only reliable democratic ally in the Middle East by recognizing
Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. As for Jewish settlements in the West Bank, they are not “illegal,” and no American administration has ever said they were. The official position for many years is that they are not helpful for a negotiated settlement and establishment of a two state solution in the area. This may help America’s image in the Middle East, but has no real impact. Even before some 300,000 Jews moved into the area of Judea and Samaria —to Israel in the Bible some 3000 years ago— the Arabs were unwilling to negotiate a permanent peace and borders.
They continue to do so, because the Muslim Arabs refuse any Jewish state in the area. The terrorist pro-Iranian organization Hamas, which dominates the Gaza Strip, has said so explicitly. Repeated rocket attacks from there have been repulsed by Israel on several occasions, with the stated support of the Obama administration, which, as you said, has just agreed to a large military aid deal (not $30 million, as you write, but some $38 billion, much of which will be spent in the USA). Do you remember that the Palestinian leader Arafat
refused an offer for most of the West Bank, as recommended by President Bill Clinton at Camp David? The present leaders continue to refuse unconditional negotiation of this 60-year old conflict. After all, in any dispute concessions must be made from both sides; so unconditional “political pressure” on Israel, as you frivolously recommend, will not do anything but raise the level of rhetoric and false hopes of those Arabs who want to eliminate the “Zionist entity.” Martin Spechler Bloomington
NO HOT TAKES
Society’s double binds force problems upon women At the time of the Republican and Democratic national conventions when the fate of the 2016 presidential election was yet unknown, a group of Washington, D.C., based interns and I would gather in the lobby of our dorm to discuss the non-issues akin to an unusual election cycle. One of these aspiring policy-wonks casually mentioned that if Trump won, he’d blame it on Hillary Clinton. Surely Clinton was responsible for the GOP nominee’s sheer incompetency. When Trump won, blame was placed as promised. Many American liberals and progressives in recovery from post-election shock quickly took to editorialize the ways in which they felt Trump’s win was Clinton’s fault. A true salt-of-the-earth candidate would know how to take on loud-mouthed Trumpism, Facebook feeds
claimed. Sen. Bernie Sanders, DVermont, a former Clinton campaigner, dug up the argument from the upper echelons of social science that identity politics do not and should not matter. The American electorate deserved a woman candidate who could smile but not too much. In other words, Clinton found herself between a rock and a hard place: a phenomenon known as the double bind. In November, linguist Deborah Tannen described the double bind on Vox’s podcast “The Ezra Klein Show.” Tannen explained the concept as a circumstance in which women are stretched to both ends on a spectrum of perfection. Because of the constraints, it’s impossible to meet either mark with satisfaction from society. “It’s a situation where you have two requisites,
but anything you do to fulfill one actually violates the other,” Tannen said. Double binds differ from double standards in the sense that a standard is, eventually, possible to reach. There are no winners in a bind. “The requirements for a good woman are at odds with our expectations and requirements for a good leader,” Tannen said. “You can’t be strong. You’re supposed to be selfeffacing. You’re supposed to be gentle, not strong.” Gender double binds are starkly present outside of politics, too. One bind women notably face is the Madonnawhore complex, which places women on a pedestal of purity concurrent to fulfilling a sexualized version of themselves. The double bind phenomenon, of course, doesn’t present a catch-all excuse for all of Clinton’s shortcomings.
Julia Bourkland is a sophomore in political science and philosophy.
Her campaign strategy contained elements that both she and her electorate would come to regret, but it does explain the implicit biases American voters had against her. It simultaneously provides a reason to not vote for her and a reason for why she was never strong enough to win. It explains her loss to an atypically crass candidate like Trump, even though she possessed all the credentials in the world to win. It’s a lose-lose scenario, and it’s exhaustive for any person to endure. Both content and discontent voters should address their harmful placement of Clinton and women in power in a paradox. Don’t let the double bind phenomenon continue. firstname.lastname@example.org

Restaurants also will not be able to receive SNAP benefits if more than 50 percent of their sales come from food cooked or heated on site as of May 17. United States Department of Agriculture undersecretary Kevin Concannon said he believes these higher standards are modest. “We hope that even in the smallest of stores that there will be more options,” Concannon said.

with the weapons it possesses. IU trailed by 12 points with 8:26 to play in the fourth quarter. That is when the comeback began. IU had been hanging tough throughout the third quarter but never found its breakthrough moments. Led by IU senior center Jenn Anderson in the post, IU methodically chipped away at the Michigan lead. By the 2:36 mark, the lead was cut down to just two

The junior guard’s second-half 3-pointer to put the Hoosiers up five with 12 minutes to go was his 1,001st point in his IU career. He became the 50th player in Hoosier men’s basketball history to eclipse 1,000 points. “He’s playing really well and he did a very good job defensively too,” Crean said about the newest member to the IU 1,000 point club. The guards picked up the slack on the scoring end, but the Hoosiers started the game shooting six of 23
stores that receive about 10 percent of SNAP benefits. These stores are where most food stamp-related fraud takes place. Concannan said most of the large retailers, from big box stores to 7-11, already meet the 84-item requirement, and this rule was made for smaller stores in areas where big box stores are unavailable. Additionally, pilot programs for other stores and online commerce will be launching throughout the country. Amazon, Safeway, ShopRite, FreshDirect and Hart’s Local Grocers will start taking food stamps in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Wash-
ington and Pennsylvania. Hy-Vee, Inc. in Iowa will also be part of the pilot program. States were chosen for the pilot programs based on software available for processing food stamps pin numbers and which states’ USDA departments were up to date on their internal technology systems. Concannon said more states can be added to this program — especially with e-commerce — throughout the year. “We know the market is changing in the sense of online purchasing opportunities,” Concannan said. He said the USDA hopes online purchasing will es-
pecially help the elderly and disabled citizens or those who cannot afford to transport to grocery stores, or do not want to go out at night to shop. The USDA has the authority to make these sweeping revisions to food stamps through the 2014 Farm Bill, which cut funding from SNAP and initiated another program to help people using food stamps receive jobs. This program was mostly focused on the heads of households receiving job training and education. Concannon said more than a million people were able to get jobs through the support of this program last year.
points. IU had the ball with under 30 seconds left. The shot clock was off, and the Hoosiers were down just two points. IU could have taken the lead or tied. Instead, Cahill was called for a suspect traveling violation. From there, Michigan hit all of its free throws to put the game away. Anderson ended up finishing with 21 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. Buss also finished with 21 points and double-figures for the 54th consecutive game. Cahill and Gassion also scored in double
figures. The pace from the opening tip was fast, and the Hoosiers struggled to come up with stops on defense. Foul trouble may have had a bit to do with the defensive struggles. Anderson and Buss both finished with four fouls. The Hoosiers fell behind by too much in the middle and couldn’t quite complete the comeback. Much like IU in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, Michigan is a tough team to beat in the Crisler Center. The Wolverines have yet to lose at
home this season. The Hoosiers will play again Saturday in Evanston, Illinois, against the Northwestern Wildcats. It will be another chance for IU to bounce back from a loss after falling to 2-2 in conference play and 12-5 overall 17 games into the season. “As coach says, ‘it’s a one-game season,’” Wierzba said. “This game didn’t go how we wanted, but we’re going to bounce back Saturday, we’re going to come out with a great game plan again.”
from the field, but were able to figure out their woes and end the first half down just one point after a buzzerbeating layup from Maryland guard Melo Trimble. Maryland hassled IU’s big men down low and controlled the paint in the first half, blocking eight Hoosier shots. Even though Anunoby executed a posterizing slam on Maryland’s Damonte Dodd with 10 seconds to go, he missed his first six shots of the game and didn’t make his first bucket until less than nine minutes to go in the contest. It wasn’t just Anunoby who struggled for IU down low, however. Its four main forwards, sophomores Thomas Bryant, Juwan Mor-
gan, freshman De’Ron Davis and Anunoby, combined to shoot five for 21 in the game and collected just 17 points. The game was closely contested the entire second half. Neither team led by more than five points in the second half. With IU up two points and fewer than two minutes to play, Terrapin guard Kevin Huerter hit a 3-pointer to take the lead and put Maryland up one. IU never overcame that deficit and lost its sixth game of the year. Crean said the Hoosiers prepared for Huerter and Maryland much like they did against Wisconsin with Huerter not being the big name but still being able to
knock down big shots. “The way we prepared it was much like Wisconsin, Nigel Hayes gets a lot of the attention, but Ethan Happ is the key,” Crean said. “In this game Melo Trimble gets a lot of the attention and deservedly so but Kevin Huerter is the guy that does so many things and he threw a dagger on us.” Through the first four games of the conference season, the Hoosiers have now lost as many games as they did during all of last year’s regular season Big Ten title run. IU has a chance to bounce back Sunday against Rutgers, but has a long way before it can call itself a legitimate contenders in the Big Ten.
USS Indiana (SSN-789) Cmdr. Jesse J. Zimbauer, center, and Master Chief Lafrederick Herring speak with IU Assistant Vice President for Strategic Partnerships Kirk White, left, in front of the prow and mast of the USS Indiana (BB-58), a WWII-era battleship, Tuesday at Memorial Stadium. The USS Indiana (SSN-789) is a Virginia-class submarine expected to be christened in April and commissioned sometime in 2018.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ments and mast of the original ship are at Memorial Stadium, but the location of the rest of the ship had been unknown for some time because it was sold for scrap in the 1960s. He said IU President Michael McRobbie asked him to find any other parts, and he discovered the ship’s bow was in the parking lot of a fish restaurant. It was being used as a parking attendant booth. White said McRobbie asked him to acquire the piece of metal, and it was donated by the family that owned the restaurant. It now sits in between the armaments at Memorial Stadium. Shearer said his committee determined more than 100 businesses in the state alone contribute to the manufacturing of submarines. He said this was important and gives the submarine’s name new meaning and connection to the state. He said it was vital to
maintain the relationship the University has with the military. “The last crew members of 789 aren’t even born yet,” said Shearer, referring to the submarine’s identification number, which distinguishes it from other ships of the same name. Herring said the crew of the submarine researched the state of Indiana as part of preparation for their commissioning next year. He is from North Carolina but said the crew are Hooyah-Hoosiers, which is a reference to the Navy’s battle cry and Indiana’s demonym. In his speech Zimbauer said the Navy was a spiritual group. He said ship naming was important and sailors treat their crafts like humans. Zimbauer said he had a single request of the audience before he ended his speech. “In 32 years when my ship gets decommissioned, can you not let it become a parking attendant’s booth?” he asked.

Inked in history Tattoo exhibit to open at Grunwald Gallery set to display the history of Indiana ink By Alison Graham | email@example.com | @alisonkgraham
hen viewers approach the doors of the Grunwald Gallery of Art this Friday, they’ll be met with a warning — graphic images inside. On the walls are pictures and videos of nude women and extreme piercings, but that’s the nature of tattoo art. It’s about people and their bodies. The Grunwald Gallery is opening its newest exhibit, titled, “Indiana Tattoo: History and Legacy.” The exhibit, which opens at 12 p.m. Friday, takes a comprehensive approach to all things Indiana tattoo and explores the state’s history of tattooing, famous tattoo artists from history and contemporary tattoo artists. “I think tattooing is very steeped in tradition, and there are people who want to preserve it,” said Jeremy Sweet, the exhibit’s curator and the associate director of the Grunwald. Sweet curated the exhibit along with Colin McClain, a local tattoo artist and owner of Time and Tide Tattoo on West Sixth Street. They spent more than a year tracking down the art, objects and memorabilia on display in the gallery through Feb. 3. Viewers will enter the gallery and step into the world of Roy Craig Cooper, famously known as Roy Boy, who was one of the most iconic tattooers in the state. Roy Boy began tattooing in 1969 in Balboa, Indiana, before moving to Gary, Indiana. He set up his shop, “Roy Boy’s Place,” and then later his world famous shop, “The Badlands.” However, it wasn’t technically called a tattoo parlor. In photos, the word “tattoo” can’t be found anywhere on the building’s façade; instead, it reads “art studio,” “photographer” or “film director.” That’s because tattooing in Indiana, and most of the country, was illegal from 1963 to 1996. Roy Boy and all tattoo artists at the time were creating their art illegally, and Roy Boy was one of the best. However, that’s not the exhibit’s focus. “It’s not about whether Roy Boy was the best tattoo artist in Indiana but about showing his wild lifestyle and how he established a Roy Boy empire in Gary, Indiana, of all places,” Sweet said. Part of why Roy Boy was so famous and influential was because of how well he marketed everything he did, and he did a lot. Not only did he illegally tattoo countless people, but he owned about 10 tigers, photographed his wife who appeared in national tattoo and motorcycle magazines, received a piloting license and tried his hand at wrestling, Sweet said. One story Sweet told was about when Roy Boy attempted to break a land speed record. He went through training and bought an 8,000 horsepower dragster to complete the task. He promoted the event so much that when his trainer said he wasn’t ready, he knew he had to do it anyway. He took off from the starting line, and soon enough, the car was out of control. It ran into a telephone pole and exploded on impact. Roy Boy was rushed to the hospital with a critical leg injury that almost killed him, Sweet said. The gallery has a piece of the dragster along with photos of the incident and his injury on display.
“He’s just one of a kind. He lived by his own rules. He didn’t answer to anybody,” Sweet said. “I think he was a significant part of the Indiana tattoo legacy, and he put Gary, Indiana, on the map for a lot of people.” Sweet also said he thinks people in the tattoo community will be able to connect with not only the Roy Boy collection but also the history segment of the exhibit. Sweet and co-curator McClain gathered newspaper clippings, artwork and about 120 images that showcase tattooed people from 19001950. The collection comes from Bernard Kobel, who preserved and cataloged the photographs before they were later made part of the Kinsey Institute’s archive collection. It will be the first time all of the images will be on display together, Sweet said. Also in the history collection is a story about a Bloomington tattoo artist named Kevin Brady, who opened a tattoo shop called All American Tattoo Studio on Walnut Street. Despite tattooing being illegal, people ignored the illegality of Brady’s shop because John Mellencamp liked it, Sweet said. Eventually the state of Indiana and the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana brought a case against Brady in 1985 for tattooing without a medical license. Brady rebutted and said not allowing him to tattoo people as a form of art was a violation of his First Amendment rights. He won, but the prosecution appealed and the next court reversed the decision. Tattooing remained illegal in Indiana until a tattooer named David Knox in Fort Wayne, Indiana, won a similar case in 1996. In addition to an immense history, the gallery showcases current tattoo work in the third section of the exhibit and includes four artists from Time and Tide Tattoo in Bloomington. About 30 tattoo artists completed 11-by-14inch flash sheets, which are pages of hand-painted images that historically hung on the walls of tattoo parlors. Customers would choose which artwork they wanted tattooed on their body from these sheets. Despite it being a mostly historical tradition, artists have continued painting and practicing on flash sheets like the ones people can see in the gallery. A variety of events will help kick off the exhibit opening. Eric Smolinski, who collected the Roy Boy memorabilia, will speak about Roy Boy’s life and legacy from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Friday in the galley. Afterward, Sweet and McClain will give a talk about the collections until 6 p.m. Starting at 6 p.m. there will be an opening reception and a live tattoo demonstration, where people can watch pre-approved clientele receive tattoos. Sweet said watching tattoo artists at work will be an interesting experience for people. Tattoo artists have an ability to quickly put ideas onto paper, oftentimes ones that aren’t theirs. Sweet said he has the utmost respect for tattoo artists because tattooing isn’t an easy art form. It’s artwork on a person — someone who moves, grows and changes. The canvas is bumpy and has curves. And it’s there forever.

IU’s guards fall just short against Maryland By Andrew Hussey firstname.lastname@example.org @thehussnetwork
Junior guard Rob Johnson, overcome by frustration, lay crumpled on the court. Johnson’s attempt to tie the game and send it into overtime against Maryland had just fallen short. In a battle Tuesday between two teams looking to avoid their third conference loss, IU fell to Maryland, 7572. IU’s guards carried the Hoosiers by scoring 55 of IU’s points. Five different guards helped IU contend with Maryland’s prolific junior guard Melo Trimble. “Our guys did a great job,” IU Coach Tom Crean said on the post-game radio show. “We wouldn’t trade anything about the shot at the end with Robert. It just didn’t go.” Early on IU in the game the Hoosiers were sinking quickly. Down seven in a hostile environment, IU’s offense was as hapless as it had been during the three-game losing streak. For the majority of the first half, IU couldn’t buy a basket against Maryland. The Terrapins imposed their will and swatted away countless shots. That was before freshman guard Curtis Jones brought the Hoosiers back into the game. Before Jones hit his two 3-pointers in the first half, IU had made one of its last ten and opened its first Big Ten conference road game sixof-23 from the field. Maryland looked like it was getting ready to run IU out of the building. Jones had done this before. Against Kansas, the freshman stepped up big time down the stretch to help IU win the game with his 3-point shooting. While he didn’t score another basket

against Maryland, those six points helped IU stay in the game and have a chance to win. Before the game, IU talked about how it had to limit Trimble. The Hoosiers didn’t do that, and Trimble was able to score 18 points and get to the foul line for 10 free throw attempts. Jones led the stabilization efforts, while junior guard James Blackmon Jr. helped IU climb back into the lead late in the first half and nearly won the game for IU in the second half. Blackmon’s two quick fouls to start the game
limited his first half production to nine points in 12 minutes, but he caught fire in the second half and added 13 more points. He hit three of five shots from 3-point range. Junior guard Josh Newkirk was another reason IU was still in the game in the first half. He had seven points and zero turnovers. However, his effectiveness was muted in the second half, and he only had two points. Freshman guard Devonte Green added five points and had some strong plays in the second half for
the Hoosiers. “We weren’t sure until this morning if he was going to play, and he did an excellent job,” Crean said. However, as prolific as the guards were Tuesday scoring the ball, they combined for nine turnovers and only had three assists among the five. They did a good job of creating shots for themselves, but there wasn’t enough ball movement or passing to set up other teammates for open looks. Along with their turnover problems, they only got to the line once in the second
“This is an incredible atmosphere. More than ever we need to keep making Assembly Hall, just taking it to another level. They’re pulling out all the stops here. I say that with a level of respect. It’s hard to win in this league. It’s hard to win on the road.” Tom Crean, IU head coach
half and struggled to drive the ball. While the Hoosier guards were the bright spot in the loss, they weren’t able to help IU get the road victory. “This is an incredible atmosphere,” Crean said.
“More than ever we need to keep making Assembly Hall, just taking it to another level. They’re pulling out all the stops here. I say that with a level of respect. It’s hard to win in this league. It’s hard to win on the road.”
Hoosiers can only go so far without a true point guard on the ﬂoor No matter how well big men Thomas Bryant and OG Anunoby play, no matter how hot the shooting is and how many swishes are heard, no matter how many offensive sets IU head coach Tom Crean implements, it doesn’t matter if there’s no true point guard. IU thought it could withstand it. With former point guard Yogi Ferrell’s departure, the Hoosiers thought they could get away with the fact that they don’t have a dominant ball handler. “The point guard is going to be the guy that, after the made basket, gets the ball on the break and can make the best decisions, advance it with the dribble or the pass,
can score at the rim, score in a pull-up situation, hit a three, get into a ball screen, those type of things,” Crean said during Big Ten Media Day. “Then everything else has got to be free flowing so that the decision-making process for us is really on that break.” It’s a wonderful thought, yet as the season’s progression has signified so far, it hasn’t come to fruition. There are too many empty possessions. Too many times has Bryant found himself holding the ball behind the arc, and too many times have guards James Blackmon Jr., Robert Johnson and Josh Newkirk looked to score without acknowledging their fellow
teammates. What this team needs is a general on the floor. The chaos and constant disorder prove this necessity is absent. With 14 turnovers compared to Maryland’s eight in the 75-72 loss to the Terrapins, the constant fumbles and flubs have been a calling card for the Hoosiers thus far. This was less than average for the Hoosiers, a team averaging a little more than 15 per game coming into Tuesday’s game. IU was also at the bottom of the conference in turnover margin with minus 4.1. The second lowest is Michigan State’s minus 2.6. This comes down to quite a few explanations — from
play-calling to weak passes — but the number one reason is the lack of someone who can run the offense. Tuesday’s loss was another example. IPFW, Nebraska, Butler, Wisconsin. In 17 games, the Hoosiers have six losses. In four Big Ten games, they have three losses. The number one problem has been a dearth at the point guard position, and it doesn’t seem as if this conundrum will be answered anytime soon. IU is okay at basketball right now, but with the tremendous talent and lofty expectations, this seems like a waste. At some point, someone with the ball in his hands
needs to be better. This brings us to junior Josh Newkirk. The Pittsburgh transfer may be the last hope for this squad. We know what Blackmon and Johnson are — a dynamite shooter and allaround player, respectively. However, neither has proven that they can be anywhere near the distributor of a Ferrell. Newkirk, on the other hand, still has some room to grow on this team. He has played less than 20 games under Crean and has slowly begun to look for teammates instead of throwing the ball at the rim hoping he will be bailed out by a foul call. These are not yet dire times for IU. Most recently

projected as a 9-seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament by Joe Lunardi, the squad is still fighting nightly in the upper echelon of college basketball. But then what? This isn’t a team that can make an actual run. Without a point guard, IU will end up losing the same way it did to Maryland in a close backand-forth game. So close. No cigar. That’s where the Hoosiers are right now. Simply put, they’re just not good enough. email@example.com @gott31
Post defense lacking for Hoosiers in loss to Wolverines By Jake Thomer firstname.lastname@example.org @jake_the_thomer
Before Tuesday’s game against Michigan, IU Coach Teri Moren said she knew her team had to focus on shutting down the versatile Wolverine offense. With junior guard Katelynn Flaherty able to pour in upwards of 20 points per game on any given night and the six-foot-five sophomore center Hallie Thome able to dominate opponents down low, it would take a complete and balanced defensive effort for the Hoosiers to come out on top. Despite a strong closing effort and keeping Michigan’s 3-point shooters largely in check, IU couldn’t stop Michigan in the paint. Thome scored 21 points on nine-of-11 shooting in the 78-74 win against the Hoosiers. Junior forward Jillian Dunston added a four-offour performance from the field to go along with nine
rebounds. Thome dominated in the first half as she hit all six of her shots and scored 15 points. The Hoosiers did switch up their defensive strategy with Thome after her quick start and wound up forcing her to commit seven turnovers by the end of the night. However, with senior forward Jenn Anderson and junior forward Amanda Cahill both in foul trouble, IU’s undersized forwards were unable to disrupt Thome’s shots. “We made some adjustments. We trapped her a little bit in the first half and just threw her out of her rhythm,” IU assistant coach Rhet Wierzba said on the IU radio postgame show on WHCC 105.1 FM. “I think probably the bigger difference was we didn’t let her get transition layups, but when Jenn gets in foul trouble in the first half, it limits our size in the post.” Offensively, the Hoosiers held their own in the paint. Anderson recorded a double-double with 21 points
IU 74, MICHIGAN 78 Points Thome and Anderson, 21 Rebounds Anderson, 12
and 12 rebounds, including six offensive boards. IU even scored more points in the paint than the Wolverines, but Michigan used 3-pointers and free throws to make up the gap. “We were able to go to her in the post, and she was able to be aggressive and attack them as opposed to just Thome going at us,” Wierzba said of Anderson. “We were able to go right back at them.” However, with the Hoosiers playing from behind for most of the game, Thome and Dunston’s efficient and timely scoring helped keep the Wolverines ahead. Seemingly every time the Hoosiers went on a mini-run of four or six points, Thome would answer with a layup or and-one of her own to stop the bleeding. If the opposing centers

were on the court for an equal amount of time, the game might have swung in IU’s favor. However, Thome was able to keep herself out of foul trouble and finished with just two fouls in 36
minutes of play. Anderson finished with four fouls and was only able to play 25 minutes. IU’s next opponent features Northwestern forward Nia Coffey, who averages
more than 11 rebounds per game despite being listed at six-foot-one, indicating post defense will be equally important Saturday if the Hoosiers hope to earn a road trip spilt.

Dance company comes to IU Auditorium “Gallim Dance is one of the most innovative and influential modern dance companies in the country, and it is wonderful to be able to share their artistic excellence with IU and the Bloomington community,” Booher said in the release. “This is a unique and special experience for theatergoers to witness such a fresh voice in the world of contemporary dance.” The group has been working with IU students since the fall, and this performance will be an extension of that initial introduction of the group’s style, Talbert said. The performers will continue this residency-style program before their performance in March. They will work with contemporary dance students. The Cleveland Orchestra and other groups preforming at the auditorium this spring have planned residencies in connection with various IU departments. Students who worked with Gallim in the fall will be featuring aspects of the performance, such as the group’s work in the signature piece “Spill,” during their own winter concert, “Roots to Wings,” this weekend, Talbert said. “This concert will definitely give audiences something they have never seen anywhere else,” Talbert said. “It is an incredible event for those who love to see what is new and current in any artistic field. Athletic, raw and innovative, it will definitely be a concert to remember.”
From IDS reports
The IU Auditorium will celebrate contemporary dance this spring with a show by a well-known New York City dance company. Tickets go on sale Thursday for Gallim Dance, which will take place at 8 p.m. Friday, March 3, in connection with the IU Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance, according to a news release. Maria Talbert, managing director for the auditorium, said Gallim is on the cutting edge of such companies across the globe. “It’s a testament to the sterling reputation of the IU Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance that, through the fostering of a deep relationship with this esteemed organization, they have opened up the opportunity for the Bloomington community at large to experience their performance,” Talbert said. The Gallim Dance group started performing in 2007 and, ever since, has created and performed the vision of Andrea Miller, its artistic director. The performances deal with universal struggles — love, spirituality and tension on an individual level — and incorporate elements of theater practice, visual art and film, according to the release. Doug Booher, director of the IU Auditorium, said the group stands out among other dance companies and those who attend will find enjoyment from the experience.
Dancer Emily Terndrup of the Gallim Dance troupe performs in its contemporary show, which comes to the IU Auditorium this March.

Fifth-year lineman won’t try for sixth season From IDS reports
Fifth-year senior offensive tackle Dimitric Camiel won’t seek a sixth year of eligibility, Camiel said on Instagram on Monday night. “I have had the opportunity to meet, learn, be coached, and most importantly play with some of the most interesting people in the world,” Camiel said in his Instagram post. “With that being said I will be pursuing my life-long dream of playing in the NFL.” Camiel played the first two games of the 2016 season before suffering bulging discs in his back, which caused the coaches to sideline him for the rest of the season. Camiel started on the IU offensive line for three seasons. He blocked for and former Hoosier running backs Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard and for Devine Redding, who ran for back-toback thousand-yard seasons. The 6-foot-7 tackle came to IU as an offensive guard out of Westfield High School in Houston, Texas, as part of the class of 2012 with former Hoosiers Nate Sudfeld, Nick Mangieri, Ricky Jones, Jason Spriggs and Coleman. His recruiting class also featured several offensive linemen whose careers ended after the 2016 season — Dan Feeney, Wes Rogers and Jacob Bailey. Taylor Lehman
