‘THE BEYONCÉ OF CONGRESS’ Speaker Nancy Pelosi stokes hope at 2019 Young Democrats of America National Convention. Some are skeptical. By Claire Peters clapete@iu.edu | @claire_peterss

Young people packed the Grand Hall of the Crowne Plaza on Friday night in Indianapolis, but they weren’t waiting for Lizzo or Taylor Swift. They were waiting for the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to speak at the Young Democrats of America National Convention. Pelosi discussed the future of the Democratic Party, long-awaited progressive legislation recently passed by the House of Representatives and the historical importance of Democrats as a whole. “One thing about her is that she loves investing in young people,” said Rep. André Carson, D-7th District, who introduced Pelosi. “And now may I introduce the Beyoncé of Congress.” Pelosi opened by drawing a parallel between the moon landing and the

heart of the Democratic Party to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing Saturday. She cited former President John F.

“There is no institution that has come up with better ideas, creative thinking or challenges of the conscious of our nation than us.” Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House

Kennedy’s promise to get America to the moon before anyone else despite the idea seeming impossible.   “That’s what this Democratic Party is about, honoring the possibilities of the future,” Pelosi said. “There is no institution that has come up with

better ideas, creative thinking or challenges of the conscious of our nation than us.” She said she was grateful for young peoples’ fresh and creative thinking, citing progressive legislation being pushed by young Democrats such as the Save the Internet Act, raising the minimum wage and gun control legislation. “I know people describe you as the future, but you are the present,” Pelosi said.  Dana Black, deputy chair for engagement for the Indiana Democratic Party, also spoke at the event. She talked about the potential for young people with electrifying energy, keeping the audience on its feet nearly the entire speech.  “As long as you are working to im-

The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is set to take audiences beyond time and space with a screening of Stanley Kubrick’s classic science fiction film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” The classic film, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, will screen at 7:30 p.m. July 26. Doors for the screening open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5. The screening is a part of the Buskirk-Chumley’s ongoing Summer Sci-Fi film series, which kicked off July 12 with a screening of the 1985 film “Back to the Future.” Written by Stanley Kubrick in conjunction with science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, “2001: A Space Odyssey” is a legendary cinematic exploration of mankind’s place among the stars. Told in three distinct chapters spanning from the dawn of mankind to the titular year, the movie follows the evolution of man into a spacefaring being and beyond. “An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author, Arthur C. Clarke,” says the Buskirk-Chumley webpage for the event. “2001: A Space Odyssey” was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry in 1991 for its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance. It was named the greatest movie of all time by the Moving Arts Film Journal in 2010.

Young Democrats flooded Indianapolis for 2019 national convention July 19 By Claire Peters clapete@iu.edu | @claire_peterss

A blue county in a red state got a little more blue this week when over 1,000 young Democrats came to Indianapolis for the 2019 Young Democrats of America National Convention. “This is the national convention, and we have it right in our backyard,” said Noah Davidson, an IU junior and College Democrats at IU member. “Just seeing all these young people energized and ready to fight for 2020 is so inspiring.”  Davidson said this convention was important for young Democrats as the 2020 election season approaches.  Although many attendees were from Indiana, young Democrats from across the country came to the event. Eduardo Aviles came from Atlanta. He said the political climate in Indiana, a majority Republican state, was similar to his home. He called Indianapolis “a blue diamond in a red sea.”  Aviles said he had learned a lot from his short experience in Indiana when he went to grab a slice of pizza downtown Thursday. Two locals saw his YDA convention name tag and recognized him as a Democrat from out of state.  Although they identified themselves as conservative Republicans, he said they welcomed him to Indianapolis and told him they wanted him to

know, “Not everyone here is batshit crazy.” Aviles said they had a genuine conversation about politics and their views. “That’s the best thing I’m taking away from this convention thus far,” Aviles said. “You can have a conversation with someone with different views as long as you are respectful to each other.” While some out-of-state attendees were enthusiastic to be there, many reflected on the cost

it took to get there. “We have so many young people that don’t have any money, so there’s not as many people here as there should be,” said Spencer Bounds, the membership director for the Texas Young Democrats. He said it cost him $400 to fly to Indiana from Texas, but not everyone who wants to get involved has that money.  Bounds said he’s been involved politically for around three years. He said he has spent

around $20,000 on going to conventions and working in politics. “It’s 20 grand I don’t have, but it’s also 20 grand that needs to be spent,” Bounds said.  He stressed the importance of getting involved politically, whether it is through travel or getting involved locally.  “It takes people like us going into the red areas saying 'You’re not alone,'” Bounds said. “'There are people here, and you have a home if you want one.'”

Lilly King turned down money to stay in school. After winning two gold medals at the 2016 Olympics, King had the chance to turn pro and cash in on her international success. She didn’t. She wanted to honor her commitment to her team and to IU. But after capping off her career by becoming the winningest female breaststroker in NCAA history, her time at IU is over. "It’s good, I can use my name, image and likeness in any way I’d like now,” King said after her college career ended at the NCAA Championships. King is taking advantage of her own likeness, signing with TYR Sport. “Partnering with TYR is a seamless transition from my college career to officially going pro, as they have been an instrumental part of my past four years at Indiana University,” King said in a press release.  “Together, we will promote a clean sport for athletes and create an opportunity for all kids to learn how to swim. I’m humbled by TYR’s investment in me and look forward to growing the sport together.”a King will be joining some of the biggest names in swimming as part of TYR Sport, including fellow Hoosier and close friend Cody Miller. World record holders Katie Ledecky, Ryan Lochte and Simone Manuel are also sponsored by TYR Sport. SEE KING, PAGE 3

‘It's a rat race, and the rats are four steps ahead’ Indiana farmers see the effect of floods and rain on their crops after the wettest 12 month period on record By Avery Williams avefwill@iu.edu | @Avery_faye

There's an old saying about corn crops: "Knee high by the Fourth of July." Hay farmer Joe Peden said the saying stopped being accurate when farmers stopped using horses to harvest. Peden harvests hay and rents out farmland in Monroe County. He said corn should be growing by June 4. But by mid-July, his renters’ corn is two weeks behind schedule and just beginning to grow tassels.  May 2018 to April 2019 was the wettest 12 month period on record in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Heavy rain and snowfall saturated the ground with water, so 49% of U.S. corn planting was not completed by May 19, a record low. Peden harvests hay on a 200 acre plot. He said he prefers to have three days with no rainfall before he cuts the hay so the hay is dry.  "I don't like to get my hay wet, so I won't cut it if it's a 20% chance," Peden said. "But that's been everyday."  Peden said he is still cutting his first round of hay. Normally, he would be on his second cutting.  "I don't even hardly remember last year after this year's disaster," Peden said.  Peden rents farmland to crop farmers. He said his renter Jeff Deck had 400 acres under water during this year's heavy rainfall and flooding. Another one of Peden's renters, Larry Stanger, had his crops damaged by recent tornadoes and flooding.  Some of the farmland is too wet for heavy farm equipment to travel on, Peden said. This delays planting, fertilizing and the spraying of pesticides. "It's a rat race, and the rats are four steps ahead," Peden said.  Farmers have had

problems with the rain since fall of 2018, said Troy Hobson, the county executive director for the Monroe USDA Farm Service Agency. Heavy rainfall made it difficult for farmers to harvest crops last year. Hobson said the ground is beginning to dry but has a long way to go. Corn and soybean farmers normally plant their crops in mid-May, Hobson said. But many could not get seeds in the ground until mid- to late-June. Hobson said the livelihood of farmers and their families could be affected within the next year. It is difficult to estimate profit loss until farmers finish harvesting

“I don’t even hardly remember last year after this year’s disaster.” Joe Peden, Monroe County farmer

"If they can't make a profit, then it's gonna be tough to keep going," Hobson said. "They have obligations to make a living like everyone else." Hobson said this year's crop yield may affect pig and cow farmers as well. Grain, often corn, is fed to pigs and cows. If there is

less corn to feed the animals than in previous years, the price of corn may go up. According to a press release, Gov. Eric Holcomb requested the USDA grant agricultural disaster designation for 88 Indiana counties, including Monroe. Holcomb’s press secretary Rachel Hoffmeyer said the request is still being considered. Hobson said any disaster events can be cause for an agricultural disaster designation.   "It takes a 30% loss of just one crop," Hobson said. "It could be due to flooding, excessive rainfall or any kind of disaster event."  If Holcomb's request is granted, struggling farmers

will be able to apply for low interest loans from the USDA. Michael Hicks, owner of Living Roots Farm, said this year has not been more difficult for him than years past. The only change he has noticed in his crops is more weeds. "This is one of our highest harvests ever," Hicks said.  Hicks farms differently than most large scale farms. He only grows on five acres of his 75 acre farm and plants roughly 300 varieties of crops.  "We have all the produce items you think of and some you don't," Hicks said. "All of our eggs aren't in one basket."  Hicks said his diversified

Volunteers try to clean up abandoned syringes By Avery Williams avefwill@iu.edu | @Avery_faye

Every Friday, volunteers with pick-up sticks walk the streets of Bloomington. They're looking for a specific type of trash: syringes. Community clean-up walk volunteers have removed one to six syringes at each walk site, said Kathy Hewett, lead health educator of the Monroe County Health Department. Led by the Monroe County Health Department and Indiana Recovery Alliance, volunteers pick up trash and safely dispose of abandoned syringes. The clean-ups happen weekly on Fridays from 4-5:30 p.m. Volunteers have walked through sites such as Butler Park, Winslow Woods, areas of the B-Line trail and outside the recreation center the Warehouse. "We are not finding very many," said Kass Botts, executive director of the Indiana Recovery Alliance. "The data is showing that there aren't many syringes improperly disposed of in our community."  Monroe County Health Department harm reduction educator Melanie Vehslage said the clean-up leaders start by identifying a place to

clean. Volunteers then meet in a parking lot near the site to obtain gloves, trash bags and other supplies. If a volunteer is unfamiliar with proper safety procedures, someone from the health department or the Indiana Recovery Alliance will teach them the correct process.  "We walk that walk to be productive," Hewett said. Botts said a fear of felony arrest leads many people to abandon syringes. In Indiana, it is illegal to possess a syringe for the purpose of injecting an illegal substance.  The health department started discussing a community clean-up program after it received a harm reduction grant surrounding HIV prevention, Hewett said. Community clean-ups are a part of the health department's effort to be involved in the community and provide a place for community members to get involved with harm prevention, Hewett said.  Each walk has had five to six volunteers since beginning two months ago, Vehslage said. "We thought it would be useful to help empower community members," Hewett

Police are searching for an unidentified man after he attempted to use a counterfeit bill Saturday afternoon to pay for a taxi and then tried to rob the driver. Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Benjamin

Burnes said the cab driver picked up the suspect at the Kroger on South College Avenue and drove him to the 700th block of East Summit View Place. The man did not have any groceries with him. When the two arrived at the destination, the suspect attempted to pay for the ride with a $100 bill, Burns said.

said. Calls complaining of abandoned syringes are forwarded to the health department, which sends out a worker to procure it, Hewett said. Teaching members of the community to safely dispose of a syringe will allow the removal to take place more quickly. According to a handout from the Indiana Recovery Alliance, someone interested in disposing of a syringe should bring a sharps disposal container to the syringe. He

or she should pick up the syringe in the middle of the barrel using tongs or gloves and place it needle end down into the container before securing the lid and washing his or her hands. Hewett said there is very little health risk in picking up a syringe if correct safety procedures are used. "This is something anyone can do," Botts said.

farm uses raised beds for planting. These beds come six to eight inches off the ground and are five feet wide. He said the beds prevent drowning and help drainage. Hicks said he and his employees plan to harvest 80,000 pounds of food by the end of the season. By using specialized smaller equipment and doing work by hand, Hicks said he is able to adapt to the weather conditions. Hicks said struggling farmers should work on building their farmland's soil for better drainage. "It's a hard model to fix when you only plant one crop," Hicks said.

The driver suspected the bill was fake and refused to accept it. The suspect took the bill back and then demanded the driver’s money. Burnes said the suspect mentioned he was armed and acted as if he was reaching for a weapon, but the driver never actually saw one.

The suspect then fled the car after he observed the driver attempting to call his dispatcher. The driver described the suspect to police as a young, 5-foot-9-inch black man weighing approximately 150 pounds. The investigation is still active. 

syringes. One site of a community clean-up walk was requested by a neighborhood association. "One week there was a nice young lady who came out, and she said 'Thanks so much for what you are doing,'" Vehslage said. Botts said she believes syringe abandonment could be reduced if there were more sharps disposal containers in the Bloomington community. The health department keeps a map of current sharps disposal containers.

A 24-year-old woman was assaulted around 9 p.m. Wednesday in an alleyway behind Taste of India. She was walking to the IU Chemistry Building from Walnut Street. When she cut through the alley, she told police she was confronted by two tall black males. One grabbed her by the throat with both hands, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Jason Shaevitz said.  While he was grabbing her throat, the other man claimed that she was not the right person they were looking for and left the scene, Shaevitz said. The woman was left with redness on her neck from where she was grabbed.   After the men left the alleyway, she left the scene and called her friend to pick her up at East Third Street. When they arrived at the friend’s house on South Fess Avenue, the woman called the police.  The case is currently inactive.

prove the lives of your fellow citizens, as Democrats we will rise,” Black said. “You all are our hope, you all are our future.” Although she was met with great enthusiasm, Pelosi’s appearance caused turbulence among some of the attendees at the conference. Some disapproved of her agenda — calling it less than progressive — and hesitance to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. “She has a hard time transitioning and seeing where the future of the party is going,” said Noah Davidson, an attendee of the conference and a member of College Democrats at IU. “I have so much respect for her, but she could be do-

ing some things a little differently.” Davidson said Pelosi is stuck in her own ways, and representatives should not enter Congress learning the rules of a broken playbook.  Davidson’s disapproval is reflected across the nation. Pelosi remains at a 37% approval rating, according to the most recent RealClearPolitics poll. After the tumultuous week following President Trump’s tweets suggesting four congresswomen of color “go back” to their countries, Pelosi put emphasis on the power of diversity within the party.  “We should take pride in the fact that we’re so different than each other,” Pelosi said. “We are not a monolith, nor do we want to be, our diversity is our strength, our

unity is our power.” During the rest of the speech, she touched on the importance of passing climate change legislation, claiming Americans have a “moral obligation for our future generations.” She said Americans need to hold President Trump accountable for his actions, which received an uproar of applause from the crowd and one of many standing ovations throughout the speech.  Pelosi ended her speech with a message of unity but stressed the importance of the Democratic Party winning the 2020 election.  “We will go fight our fight that honors the values of our founders, then we will win that fight,” Pelosi said. “But in order to do that, we must win the next election.”

NIPPLE TASSELS,

PUPPETS AND

FREEDOM ‘Singe’s Summer Simmer’ heats up the Back Door with burlesque Story by Annie Aguiar

Twirlisha Devine peels off one of her gloves during her routine at “Singe’s Summer Simmer” on July 20 at the Back Door. Devine also hosts “Showgirl Sunday Dinner,” a bi-weekly burlesque podcast.

The queen crawled across the floor oh so slowly, a blue feather boa wrapped around her body as she slithered under the gaze of the entire room. She had emerged on the stage to the song “Glory Box” by Portishead, a personal favorite, wearing a floor length gown but had long since left the gown on the stage to reveal not much underneath. Under the colored lights, her blue glitter nipple pasties sparkled. Poison Ivory is a New York City-based burlesque performer and the 2016 Queen of Burlesque, a prestigious title awarded after an annual competition at the Burlesque Hall of Fame. She was one of six performers at “Singe’s Summer Simmer,” a burlesque show Saturday night at the Back Door that included burlesque, boylesque and drag performances. Singe, a Bloomington-based burlesque show producer and educator, organized and hosted the show, which was her 20th burlesque production. She started in burlesque in 2011. Singe credited the 2008 documentary “A Wink and a Smile” for a part of her interest in burlesque. When she mentioned the film in a crowded back room before the show, another performer chimed in, “Me, too!” Burlesque started as a parody of musical theater in Victorian England before becoming a vaudeville-competitor striptease in the late 1800s. A modern revival caused the genre to focus less on pleasing a male gaze and more on creativity and performance, the theater and the narrative of the routines themselves. “I’ve seen people do it for fun, and I’ve seen people use it as a growing process after trauma,” Singe said. She also has taught at BurlyCon, a Seattle convention dedicated toward burlesque, for multiple years. That’s where she met Ivory, who was pregnant and in need of a room to crash. Singe offered and asked if she would ever want to perform at a show in Bloomington. Ivory said yes. Ivory, who is 36 and used to work in television production, has been touring the country doing shows for the last five years. A friend gave her the stage name “Poison” — her real name is Andrea Ivory. She also saw the documentary that inspired Singe and started taking classes at the New York School of Burlesque for fun. “It felt like I found a new addiction,” she said. Her Bloomington performance was one of her first after giving birth to her daughter Audrey in April. She only stopped performing when she was eight months

pregnant, and said she looks forward to showing her in-utero “duet partner” videos of the shows when Audrey grows up. Ivory’s show marks the first time a Queen of Burlesque has ever performed in Bloomington, Singe said. Most of the other performers were Indiana-based, including Bloomington-based drag performers Mocha Debeauté, Jaimee Spangle, local burlesque performer and host of the “Showgirl Sunday Dinner” podcast Twirlisha Devine and Indianapolis resident Juju Bone. Bone, who is 35 and works in food service management, carefully brushed a pink heart onto the tip of her nose as she sat at a desk crammed with items: dry shampoo, makeup, setting spray, an apple, Elmer’s adhesive spray and the heart-shaped pink pasties with tassels she later attached using said adhesive spray.

Poison Ivory points to an audience member as she performs her second routine July 20 at the Back Door. Ivory won the title of Queen of Burlesque in 2016.

Burlesque performer Juju Bone prepares for her first routine backstage July 20 at the Back Door. In her daily life, Bone works in food service management.

Most of the performers did two numbers, and Bone’s first one was all bubblegum and bounce. The look was inspired by a 90s themed birthday party she went to. She dressed as a Care Bear and decided to incorporate it into her act. Her second look for the night was leather and fishnets, which she wore for a routine involving an apple moving from her hand to her hair to between her buttcheeks to the mouths of audience members vying for attention, hands outstretched. “I do not subscribe to a look,” she said. “I shoot from the hip. Variety is the spice of life.” The night’s acts ranged from the sultry to the silly. Bloomington-based drag king Jaimee Spangle dangled from chains suspended from the ceiling, spinning in a red glitter harness matching his glitter beard. Bazuka Joe, a Chicago-based boylesque dancer, graced the stage in only a towel. He slowly stripped the towel to reveal a slightly smaller one underneath and continued down the matryoshka route until finally

only wearing a small towel over his genitals. For his second act, he strapped a large puppet named Mortimer the Monster to himself and gave a classic burlesque routine complete with feather fans as Mortim-

er. Singe’s burlesque shows usually have a theme, but this time the performers were told to do whatever they wanted. Part of the appeal of burlesque for the performers is that ability to express

whatever they want on stage, be it through strapping yourself to a large monster puppet or crawling on the floor. “You can do anything, feel anything,” Singe said. “You have the ultimate freedom to create.”

FOOTBALL

Cameron Williams is embracing a new wave By Zackary Swoboda zswoboda@iu.edu | @zackaryswoboda

The 2019 IU football recruiting class has been nicknamed the "new wave." It is IU’s best ever class in the rankings era. Ever since Head Coach Tom Allen took over the program in 2016, IU has been on the verge of "breaking through." The recruiting classes have improved, and the Hoosiers inch closer to a bowl appearance each year, but this new wave of talent is looking to do more than just be on the verge of something special. At the forefront of that attitude is freshman linebacker Cameron Williams. Rivals ranked Williams as the fourth best Indiana prospect and the 11th best outside linebacker in the nation. When it came to deciding what college to choose, Williams didn't want to start with a program that was already big. He wanted to create change. When fellow in-state four-star recruits Beau Robbins, defensive lineman from Carmel High School, and Sampson James, running back from Avon High School, announced their commitments to IU, Williams said it made the decision a little easier.

“Everybody is striving to be better. Everybody is striving to be the best in the Big Ten.” Cameron Williams, freshman linebacker

Williams played for Andrean High School in Merrillville, Indiana. Seeing fellow talented instate recruits commit to IU influenced Williams a little more to the Bloomington scene. During his junior and

ZACKARY SWOBODA | IDS

Freshman linebacker Cameron Williams talks to the media July 10 in Memorial Stadium. Williams is ranked as the fourth best Indiana prospect.

senior years combined, Williams racked up 124 tackles, 17 sacks, two interceptions with one going for a touchdown, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and seven pass breakups. He was named an Indiana Football Coaches Association All-State player for two years. Williams also ran track in high school, which in turn helped him with endurance on the field. He said track improved his form and quick-bursts speed on the field. His fastest time for 110-meter high hurdles was a 14.12, and for the 100-meter dash was 11 seconds flat. He advanced to the state meet in track at IU, ending one career at the same place he was going to start his other.

When he got to IU, Williams said he was surrounded by an atmosphere where everyone was pushing to be better. It was a new level of greatness to strive toward each and every time he stepped on the field or workout room. “The workouts kinda surprised me,” Williams said. “It’s a new intensity I have to bring everyday in the workouts. Everybody is striving to be better. Everybody is striving to be the best in the Big Ten.” He said his father played a big part of his football career. He started out as a running back, but with his 6-foot-3-inch, 215-pound frame, his father lured him to dish out the tackles rather than receive them. Former linebacker stars Lance Briggs and Brian

Urlacher from the Chicago Bears were inspirations for Williams. The Bears are his favorite team, and the hardnosed, grind-it-out style of Briggs and Urlacher gave something Williams wanted to mirror his game after. He said he has grown close with fellow freshman linebacker D.K. Bonhomme. Bonhomme and Williams talk every day and try to improve their game together. In addition to Bonhomme, Williams gives credit to each linebacker on the team and defensive coordinator/linebackers Coach Kane Wommack for helping him get accustomed to the team. The summer is nearing the end as IU gets set for its 2019 campaign, starting with a noon kick-off Aug. 31 against Ball State University

in Lucas Oil Stadium. The Hoosiers don't want to be playing for a bowl game during the last game of the season against the Purdue Boilermakers in November like the last two seasons. They want a bowl game already secured before that game. They want to finally break through, and Williams said he and the rest of the 2019 recruiting class think they can be a big part in that. “Coming in early can be a shock for quite a few freshmen around the country any time, anywhere,” Williams said. “So coming into a DI program, especially with a big name like IU, I look to change the culture around completely. My class is called the new wave for a reason.”

The Rimington Trophy Committee announced Friday afternoon IU football fifthyear senior Hunter Littlejohns earned a spot on the Rimington Trophy Watch List. The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the most outstanding center in college football. Since its inception, the 17-year old award has raised over $4.2 million for the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. The award is named after Dave Rimington, who was a consensus firstteam All-American center at the University of Nebraska in 1981 and 1982, during which time he became the John Outland Trophy's only two-time winner as the nation's finest college interior lineman. Littlejohns started under center for the Hoosiers 16 times over the past two seasons, appearing in all 24 games. In 2018, he allowed just three sacks in 904 snaps and was named IU offensive player of the week following the team's win against University of Virginia on Sept. 8. He was part of the offensive line that allowed IU to rank second in the Big Ten in first downs per game at 23.5, third in the conference in passing offense at 257.8 yards per game and tied-for-sixth in passing touchdowns with 20. The center with the most first team votes will be determined the winner. If there is a tie with first team votes, then the center with the most second team votes will win. If there is still a tie, the winner will be determined by a majority vote from the Rimington Trophy committee. The winner will be recognized at the Rimington Trophy Presentation at the Rococo Theatre on Jan. 18, 2020 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Meanwhile, Littlejohns and IU kick off the 2019 season Aug. 31 against Ball State University at Lucas Oil Stadium.

WRESTLING

Wrestling adds NCAA Champion Jason Tsirtsis to coaching staff By Dylan Wallace dswallac@iu.edu | @Dwall_1

IU wrestling Head Coach Angel Escobedo announced Friday Jason Tsirtsis would be joining the program as a volunteer assistant coach. In his career, Tsirtsis has taken the wrestling scene by storm.

Starting at Crown Point High School in Crown Point, Indiana, Tsirtsis won four state championships. In his redshirt freshman season at Northwestern in 2014, he won the NCAA Championship at 149 pounds. That same year, he was also the Big Ten Champion, Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Inter-

mat Freshman of the Year and Midlands Champion. Tsirtsis ended his collegiate career in 2017-18 with Arizona State University as an All-American and a seventhplace finish at the NCAAs. He was named the Comeback Wrestler of the Year at the NCAA Championships by FloWrestling.

"I'm very excited to add Jason Tsirtsis to our staff," Escobedo said in a press release. "Since day one, our focus has been to keep the best kids in state, and I believe having an Indiana legend like Jason will help achieve this goal. He will work directly with our middle weights, and we are excited to have him

join our program." The middle weights Tsirtsis will work with will be from 149-165 pounds. Last season was Escobedo's first season as head coach, and the Hoosiers went 6-12. After years of struggling to compete in the Big Ten, Escobedo is trying to flip the script, and Tsirtsis said he

wants to be a part of it. "I am extremely excited to join the wrestling family down in Bloomington," Tsirtsis said in the release. "Angel has done a great job at changing the culture within the program, and I'm thrilled to help further the growth and development of our wrestlers."

POLITICAL POWERS

ILLUSTRATION BY MADELYN POWERS | IDS

THE BRYCE IS RIGHT

American imperialism in Honduras is part of what led to mass migration

TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Ileana Gonzalez holds back tears as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administer the Oath of Allegiance to America’s newest citizens during a special naturalization ceremony July 3 at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center in Homestead, Florida. The citizens originate from Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru and Venezuela. Bryce Greene is a senior in informatics.

Several reports have come to light describing the abhorrent conditions migrants face after being detained at the border. Many are rightly describing the migrant facilities as concentration camps. Children are being kept in crowded cages and being forced to drink from toilets. Adults are being forced to sleep on crowded concrete floors without blankets. Both are given little food or medical attention and are not allowed to shower for weeks on end. One El Paso border agent describes them as “the new normal.” Naturally, immigration is a hot topic in American politics. Conservatives in America cite jobs and fairness in their opposition to illegal immigration. Few openly cite the obvious xenophobia or racism. Liberals have played a largely

reactionary role, pushing back on draconian efforts of the right and suggesting some pathway to citizenship. However, America’s role in generating the flow of migrants from the global south has been largely ignored in the debate. If we want to stop the flow of migrants, part of the solution is looking at our own actions. The first major caravan originally set off from Honduras during the spring of 2018. Since then, many other migrants have followed suit from countries such as Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, but the bulk are still Honduran.  In the United States, Central American countries are synonymous with poverty, crime and violence. We must ask ourselves how it got to this point.  The United States has a long history of wreaking havoc in Central America. Since the early 20th century, United

Fruit Company and other U.S. corporations have been concerned with the threat to profitability posed by democratic governments of places like Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Cuba and many others. These governments had the crazy notion that the profits from their country’s resources should flow primarily to its citizens and not to foreign corporations. If a popular government raised wages and increased social services, the contagion could spread to other countries in the region. This is unacceptable to U.S. planners.  The U.S. backed right-wing governments for decades through military aid, special training and diplomatic support. The U.S. even went so far as to use Honduras as a base of operations for the terrorist wars against Nicaragua’s left-wing government in the 1980s. After the 80s, social movements took place which

began to turn Honduras away from authoritarianism and U.S. influence. Today, the United Fruit Company is called Chiquita. Along with other industries, these are the power centers motivating U.S. policy of keeping corporate friendly leaders in power. Modern Honduras is emblematic of this trend.  In 2009, the U.S. encouraged a military coup that removed the democratically elected left-leaning Honduran President Manuel Zelaya from office. According to emails leaked in 2016, this was exactly what the State Department under Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama intended. The U.S. then legitimized the coup by accepting the largely fraudulent elections. With a weakened central government, crime rose sharply. The spike prompted the U.S. to send millions in military aid to help the coup

government to help fight the war on drugs. As is usual with this type of arrangement, the money wasn’t just used to fight drug trafficking. The government quickly turned to domestic political repression. The U.S. helped train and equip high tech police and military units. These have been unleashed on the Honduran population for the last decade. There has been widespread state violence including death squads who carry out political assassinations. High-level activists are targeted with their corpses being strewn in the streets.  Nothing has changed under the Trump presidency. In 2017, Hondurans held another fraudulent election, which the U.S. recognized. Hundreds of migrants are leaving the country every day. Austerity measures are cutting social services even more. The public objections

to these measures are met by harsh violent repression. Recently Max Blumenthal of The Gray Zone interviewed antigovernment protesters who described their conditions as “worse than Venezuela.” It is clear that U.S. support has helped keep the Honduran government in power despite the will of the Honduran people. Economic interests in the area have prompted America to support dictators as part of the growing global right-wing alliance. The case against locking people up in degrading conditions is obvious. The case for allowing people a way out of the nightmare we helped create can only be made to those aware of the facts. Any conversation about the flow of migrants must address the U.S.’ role in destabilizing migrants’ countries of origin. greenebj@iu.edu

MOVIE REVIEW

French dramatic thriller ‘Knife+Heart’ is a postmodern queer fever dream Chris Forrester is a junior in journalism.

The giallo, an Italian horror subgenre that blends the grotesque of the American slasher and the psychological thrills of the noir into a single package, has always thrived on showmanship. The genre’s best filmmakers — ”Suspiria” director Dario Argento and Mario Bava, among others — doleding out cruel but fantastically imaginative fates to their characters and pioneered a genre where every image is imbued with both darkness and fantasy. “Knife+Heart,” the woefully underseen new gem by French filmmaker Yann Gonzalez, continues the giallo’s dastardly traditions, revitalizing a genre long forgotten and carving out a space in contemporary horror for camp and queerness.

Many perfectly competent filmmakers have tried their hands at this sort of genre pastiche and failed to create anything remarkable. However, Gonzalez’s postmodern giallo is an utter masterpiece that pays perfect homage to horror and queer cinema by spinning them into something fantastically new. It certainly isn’t high art, nor is it accessible by any stretch of the imagination. But this delightfully sleazy thrill ride about a gay porn director’s search for answers when her models are brutally murdered one-by-one, set in 70's Paris, is unforgettable. Part of Gonzalez’s brilliance is his adherence to the gold standard of the films he’s emulating. Enough blood is shed in “Knife+Heart” to make Argento and Bava proud. The first kill of the movie, and perhaps its best, features a rubber dildo with

MOVIE STILLS DATABASE

"Knife + Heart" stars Vanessa Paradis and Nicolas Maury. The film is about a gay porn producer who sets out to film her most ambitious film yet, but her actors are picked off one by one by a mysterious killer.

a concealed knife blade that’s used to stab a porn star to death in the rectum. It’s garish and overwhelmingly gruesome, but powered by Gonzalez’s powerful sense of aesthetic and electronic band M83’s exceptional synth score, it’s dazzling just how perfect the moment feels.

Gonzalez’s vision is so immaculately rendered that his movie transcends the label of tribute or pastiche. It is a giallo and an incredible one at that. But “Knife+Heart” defies the norms of the genre just enough to feel like a work all its own. Gonzalez never feels bound by the tropes of the

works he’s emulating, and thus his movie is never mired by a need to adhere to the rules. It’s a movie about rule breaking, and many of its best moments stem from a sense of liberation. Unlike a great many giallos, which tended to be lean, narratively-focused and largely devoid of any additional plot threads that might distract from the gruesome mysteries at hand, “Knife+Heart” revels in the majesty of its characters. At its center is Anne, whose life seems already in shambles when her editor and romantic partner Loïs leaves her, and that’s before she learns of her rectally eviscerated star’s fate. Both actresses — Vanessa Paradis as Anne and Kate Moran as Loïs — deliver achingly human turns as the pair of former lovers, anchoring this supernaturally tinged gorefest to genuine pain and

loss. Around them, too, is an equally exceptional lineup of vibrant and wonderful performers who flesh out the cast of the porn studio Anne runs. Each character is in their own right dazzling, but beyond that there’s a legitimate sense of community tying the entire film together. The genre provides them a delightful sandbox in which to play, but it also never obscures its themes or its representations of queerness and community. By its final frames, “Knife+Heart” feels more like a queer film in a giallo costume than the stunning genre exercise it sets out to be. It’s a sexy and perfectly tailored giallo outfit at that, a sleek leather bodysuit to match its air of defiance and sexual liberation, but one that never obscures its own heart and identity. chforres@iu.edu
