The IDS will not print on Monday, Jan. 15 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Stay up-to-date at


50 years later Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated April 4, 1968, in Tennessee. In 1986, the third Monday of January was first observed as a national holiday in honor of the reverend and civil rights activist. The holiday is celebrated as a “day on, not a day off,” according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. The timing of the holiday falls around King’s birthday on January 15. To honor King’s memory, the IDS is taking a look back on April 5, 1968, when a University memorial service at the IU Auditorium commemorated King the afternoon following his death.


Top Elvis J. Stahr Jr., then-president of IU, wrote a letter to the University community the evening of King’s death emphasizing his shock and sadness in wake of the death. “His courage, his eloquence, the nobility of his aims and of his life should inspire men and women of every race to re-double our determination to put away hate forever,” Stahr wrote. He invited the community to the following day’s memorial service. In his letter, Stahr said all flags on campus would be flown at half-staff, and he encouraged faculty members to observe a period of silent meditation in their Friday classes. Top left When Martin Luther King Jr. died in 1968, the nation was launched into mourning. The front page of the Indiana Daily Student the following day highlighted national, state and local reactions to the shooting. Violence, memorial services and shock swept the nation. Top right “If the murder of Dr. King means an awakened white conscience, if the murder of Dr. King means a new thrust for black equality, Dr. King himself would feel that he has laid a small sacrifice on the altar of human freedom,” said Norman R. Dixon, a teaching associate in the Graduate School of Education according to a pamphlet from the ceremony at the IU Archives. Bottom left At the service, University dignitaries and student leaders spoke about King’s character and actions. The service started with an invocation before moving on to the remarks of faculty and students who spoke about the man King was and what his death meant to the nation. Bottom right The ceremony ended with a benediction from Rev. E. D. Butler, thanking God for the influence of King’s life and the power that it brought to many. Three thousand people attended the ceremony, according to a clipping from the Daily Herald-Telephone found in the IU Archives.

Women’s basketball struggles to capitalize down the stretch By Dylan Wallace | @Dwall_1

The three-point line has revolutionized the game of basketball today. Ever since it was added in 1979, it has become more and more vital to success in the game. Today, the three-point line can make or break teams. On Wednesday night, it broke the IU women’s basketball team as they fell to No. 23 Michigan 84-79. The Hoosiers did not play a bad game. In fact, it was

84-79 the best performance IU has put up this season against a ranked team. The difference was the black arc that stands 20 feet, nine inches from the basket. The Wolverines shot 9-18 from deep, while IU shot 5-14. The difference isn’t eye-popping, but the 3-pointers made from Michigan came at times where the Hoosiers had the momentum. In a game where IU led

by no more than three, those shots from beyond the arc proved pivotal. Most of the damage done on the outside was from junior guard Nicole Munger, who shot 4-7 from three and had 16 points, and freshman forward Hailey Brown, knocking down all three of her outside shots and scoring 23 points. The two Wolverine shooters were left wide open time after time after the Hoosiers doubled-teamed Michigan sophomore center Hallie PHOTO COURTESY OF AARON BAKER | THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Zeus: The IUPD K-9 officer ensuring campus safety By Caroline Anders | @clineands

Zeus sat and gazed up at Officer Ryan Skaggs with his characteristic head tilt, tongue hanging out of the side of his mouth and looking almost like he was smiling. The IU Police Department invested approximately $12,000 in a new K-9 officer last spring when Zeus, a rescue from South Dakota, joined IUPD’s ranks after about three months of intensive training. Zeus is a 2-year-old mutt, but his human companion, Skaggs, says he is mostly Labrador and pit bull. He entered the department upon the retirement of German Shepherd Tery, IUPD’s first police dog. Tery served for five years and retired at the age of nine to enjoy civilian-dog life. The $12,000 covered not only Zeus’ adoption and training, but also training for Skaggs. The pair worked with Ultimate Canine, a Westfield, Indiana-based company focused on providing all kinds of dog training services. Zeus is trained to identify various kinds of homemade and military-grade explosives. His commands are in Dutch so civilians cannot give him directions. Skaggs and Zeus generally work 12-hour shifts starting at 7 a.m. and do everything from standard traffic enforcement to bomb sweeps for special events. “We usually have a cup of coffee,” Skaggs said. “And then him and I will go somewhere and do some training.” While he is not sniffing out threats, Zeus can often be found lounging on his dog

bed in the back of Skaggs’ cruiser. Though they have not found any yet, the pair are responsible for sweeping areas for explosives prior to large events like basketball or football games. Skaggs said if an event hosts more than 8,000 people, they will likely be called to search it. “The way of the world now is this is just kind of what is done at major events,” Skaggs said. “Especially at universities.” The Indiana State Police also bring a bomb dog, equipment and hazardous device

technicians that would be necessary in the case of a threat to events like IU basketball games. The state police who attend these events not only help split up the job of sweeping the area between Zeus and one of their dogs, but also help to prepare if one of the dogs detects an explosive. “Just like the movies, we’d be putting on the protective suits and going down and examining,” said Rick Stocksale, Indiana State Police Hazardous Device Technician. Skaggs said Zeus does not like all of noise of the basketball games, so they generally

leave or wait outside after the sweep is complete. Skaggs and Zeus also train monthly with the Indiana State Police Department’s team of six explosive detection dogs. As Zeus sniffed around Assembly Hall on Tuesday before the IU vs. Penn State men’s basketball game, Skaggs tried to ensure he checked every trash can, bathroom, supply closet, locker room and private box. Though Zeus is not trained to attack, Skaggs said he generally blocks members of the public from petting the dog. He said most people know

well enough to leave him alone, but not all. “Depending on intoxication levels,” he said, “We might have a different discussion.” As the duo swept the hall, Zeus glanced back at Skaggs constantly. Skaggs said Zeus was not looking for instruction. “He knows where his tennis ball comes from,” he said, chuckling and retrieving the ball out of one of his pockets. The pair also fielded questions and comments from staff at Assembly Hall as they conducted their search. It is clear Skaggs is used to this.

“What’s his name?” “You think they can train a cat to do that?” “I thought he was a service dog!” “He’s my therapy dog,” Skaggs replied, laughing. Zeus pulled on his lead as the two wrapped up their search. Skaggs said the dog knows the routine well enough to know when they are almost done. Questions including #AskSkaggsnZeus on Twitter will be replied to in a weekly video series by IUPD. Community members can also ask questions anonymously about Zeus through IUPD’s website.

State senate committee approves bill allowing Sunday carryout alcohol sales From IDS reports

An Indiana Senate committee has approved a bill allowing carryout alcohol sales on Sundays. Senate Bill 1 allows convenience, drug and liquor stores to sell alcohol from noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays. The Senate Public Policy

Committee approved the bill, which will now make its way to the Senate floor. After being debated on the Senate floor, senators will vote on whether to push the bill through to the House, where it will be debated and voted on again. The bill comes after the Alcohol Code Revision

Commission voted on in November to recommend allowing carryout alcohol sales on Sundays. The committee’s approval signals a step forward in repealing the state’s post-Prohibition era laws. Laurel Demkovich

A student living in McNutt Residence Hall was diagnosed with measles, according to an IU press release Wednesday. Local, IU and state health officials are investigating who the student may have come in contact with when he first arrived in Bloomington on Jan. 2 for New Student Orientation, according to the press release. IU spokesperson Chuck Carney said once the infected student felt ill, they immediately went to the health center. “The student did the right thing,” Carney said. Measles is extremely contagious for anyone who hasn’t received their Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations, Carney said, and students should be careful. “If you feel bad, don’t try and tough it out,” Carney said. Most IU students should have had their two doses of the vaccine, as the University requires students to have them in order to enroll in their second semester of classes. While students and faculty should feel free to contact the health center with concerns, Dr. Diana Ebling, the medical director at IU Health Center, said most of the University population should be safe. The MMR vaccine for measles is 97 percent effective after two doses. Ebling said outside of a religious or medical exemption, of which there are very few, IU requires MMR vaccinations. Both Ebling and Carney agreed much of what stu-

dents and faculty can do to feel safer about measles and other diseases, like the flu, is practice common sense and good hygiene. Ebling said students should avoid contact with anyone who seems ill with measles or the flu. He also stressed how vital washing hands is to staying healthy. Symptoms for measles include high fever, cough, runny nose, red, watery eyes and tiny white spots may appear inside the mouth. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the symptoms usually start appearing about seven to 14 days after a person is first infected. There hasn’t been a case of measles at IU since 2013, when only one case was reported. Measles has largely been eliminated from the United States as of 2000, but cases do appear throughout the country with as many as 120 having been reported as of December 2017, according to the CDC. The disease is much more common abroad, Ebling

said. Measles often appears if someone without the vaccination travels outside the U.S., or if an international student comes to the U.S. If students are feeling unwell, Carney and Ebling both encourage them to do like the student with measles did and come to the health center to be tested. Since the student came in to the center relatively quickly when symptoms appeared, Carney said the University is confident they understand the scope of the disease and have it contained to this one case. “The student did the right thing,” Carney said. Resources for students Students with symptoms should stay home, isolate themselves as much as possible and call the IU Health Center at 812-855-5002 during office hours or 812-8554011 after hours.

Five takeaways from Gov. Holcomb’s State of the State MALLORY SMITH | IDS

Gov. Eric Holcomb gives his State of the State speech Tuesday at the Indiana statehouse. Holcomb addressed opioids, education and infant mortality rates, and how Indiana citizens can help these issues improve in Indiana. By Laurel Demkovich @LaurelDemkovich

Gov. Eric Holcomb used his annual State of the State address to discuss successes of his first year as well as his agenda for the year ahead. Here is what was said, what was not said and what lawmakers wished was said. 1. Workforce development will continue to be Holcomb’s main priority. Holcomb said his main focus for the year will be workforce development. “This is the defining issue of the decade, and we don’t have a day to waste,” Holcomb said. To achieve this, Holcomb plans to require every Indiana school to offer at least one computer science course by 2021. He also encouraged the creation of programs for adults to finish high school diplomas and college degrees. Holcomb set specific goals for getting more Indiana residents in the workforce. He said he wants 25,000 more adults taking part in programs that help more Indiana residents go back to college. He

also set a goal to help 30,000 more adults without a high school diploma get the skills needed to obtain a job. He added that he wants to create an office to establish 25,000 apprenticeships and work-based learning experience programs by the end of 2019. Holcomb said he wants more skilled people in Indiana to fill jobs that currently cannot be. “Let’s give them the tools they need to reach their full, true potential,” Holcomb said. Holcomb said improving Indiana’s workforce will be a long-term commitment. “But the results when we succeed will position Indiana for even more economic gain for your children and grandchildren for generations to come,” he said. 2. Holcomb will attack the opioid epidemic using a three-step approach. Lawmakers have made it clear that fighting the opioid epidemic will be a large part of their 2018 agenda. Holcomb spent much of his speech Tuesday discussing his plans for approaching the crisis that has affected the lives of thousands of Hoosiers.

Holcomb said he will focus on a balanced, three-step approach: treatment, prevention and enforcement. His plan includes improving how physicians use INSPECT, Indiana’s prescription drug monitoring program. In September, one hospital was using INSPECT, but more hospitals are getting on board, Holcomb said. The database shows what controlled substances a patient is prescribed, who prescribed them and the pharmacy where they were filled. He also plans to strengthen law enforcement efforts, establishing a felony charge for drug-induced homicide and a felony murder charge for manufacturers of drugs that result in death. “If you deal or manufacture illegal drugs that result in someone’s death, you will be charged with our highest level felony and you will go to prison for a long, long time,” Holcomb said. 3. Holcomb set a goal to lower Indiana’s worsening infant mortality rate. Holcomb also brought up Indiana’s rising infant mortality rate. With 623 babies

dying before the age of 1, Indiana ranked among the worst states in the country in 2016, Holcomb said. He said this was unacceptable, pledging a goal to have the lowest infant mortality rates by 2024. “We can and we will save more of them,” Holcomb said. 4. After accusations of disregard for the Department of Child Services, Holcomb said he will remain transparent during the department’s assessment. After former DCS Director Mary Beth Bonaventura resigned Dec. 12, many lawmakers made it clear that looking into the issues surrounding DCS would be on their agenda and many wondered if Holcomb would bring up the issues in his address. In her resignation letter, Bonaventura said she felt unable to protect children due to cuts in funding and services to children amid the opioid crisis. After Bonaventura’s resignation, Holcomb hired a new DCS director, as well as the Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group to conduct a review of the department. Holcomb said Tuesday

that he’ll remain open about the results of the assessment. In his address, he emphasized his support for investigating DCS. “There is no one that cares more about Hoosier children than I do,” he said. 5. Caucus leaders had mixed feelings on the speech. As Holcomb avoided many contentious issues like Sunday alcohol sales and CBD oil, House Democratic Leader Terry Goodin, D-Austin, said Holcomb’s speech lacked boldness and leadership. Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, agreed, saying the governor’s speech lacked a bold vision. Goodin said he was disappointed the governor didn’t discuss mental health when laying out his plan for fighting the opioid epidemic, while Lanane wished he’d focused on increasing resources to fight the crisis. Both Goodin and Lanane appreciated Holcomb’s focus on workforce development. However, they said they wished his plan was bolder. Lanane said there needs to be more focus on reform.

“Clearly what we’re doing is just not working,” he said. Republican leaders said Holcomb set the right tone in his speech with hope and prosperity. They agreed with his DCS approach, pledging to be transparent when it came to the assessment. House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, said he appreciated the governor acknowledging that there are problems and pledging to work on solutions. “We need the report, and then we need to attack jointly,” said President Pro Tempore David Long, R-Fort Wayne. Democrats worry Holcomb’s approach is not serious enough. Democratic leaders were worried with how little time Holcomb spent Tuesday on the topic. Goodin said he does not think the issues regarding DCS are resonating with the other side. “I’m not grasping that people get the seriousness of this,” Goodin said. Goodin pledged to call for a special session if the results of the DCS assessment in April show children are in danger. “If we fail our children, we fail, period,” Lanane said.

Local anti-hate group re-establishes after recent events By Lydia Gerike | @LydiaGerike

Bloomington United, a local anti-hate group originally founded in 1998, announced its revival Wednesday morning at a joint press conference with the City of Bloomington. “Now, with what is going on in the world, it is time to make sure that we are active again,” co-chair and Hillel director Sue Silberberg said in an interview. After events such as the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville and local commotion surrounding the on-campus protest of conservative speaker Charles Murray last spring, Silberberg and co-chair Doug Bauder began thinking about reviving the group. Over the past three or four years, Bloomington United

has dispersed because the city hasn’t faced the same level of hate it did in the past, Silberberg said. Instead, the new concept will be to serve as a preventative force against hate groups and discrimination. Bauder, director of the LGBTQ+ Culture Center, said Bloomington United has stayed alive among those who were involved in the past. “Some amazing friendships have been formed that continue to this day,” Bauder said. The group first began in 1998 when Ben Smith, a member of the World Church of the Creator, a neo-Nazi group, began distributing hate literature in the Bloomington community. In July 1999, Smith went on a shooting spree across Il-

linois and Indiana that resulted in the killing of IU graduate student Won-Joon Yoon. One of Bloomington United’s first major acts was to organize a rally for Yoon. “Out of this sad, sad incident, there’s been a lot of effort to come together to create understanding,” Bauder

said. Back then, Bloomington United responded to a group spreading messages in Peoples Park against members of the Muslim, Jewish and LGBT communities, Silberberg said. People pledged donations for every minute the group stayed in Bloomington, and

the funds they raised were donated to charities supporting the minority groups. Silberberg said fundraising efforts at the time also brought in funding for more than 10,000 yard signs for the community. On one side they read, “No hate, not in our yards, not in our town, not anywhere,” and on the other side “Bloomington UNITED in diversity.” The signs signaled that members of the community would not stand for intolerance , Silberberg said. “It set the tone for what kind of community we are and it let people know that we weren’t just going to stand idly by,” Silberberg said. For Silberberg, one of the group’s original founders, the desire to stand up against hate stems from her upbring-

ing. Because of her knowledge of the history of the persecution of Jewish people in Egypt, she said she knew she needed to advocate for the equal treatment of all people. “As a Rabbi, I believe we have a responsibility to stand up for those who need protected,” Silberberg said. Bauder said his involvement with Bloomington United helped him understand more about communities around him than he would have otherwise. People are connected through their many identities, he said, and Bloomington United recognizes the importance of everyone’s experiences. “If we’re not valuing each other,” Bauder said, “We all lose something in the process.”

Opening up coastal waters to drilling is a mistake Gov. Eric Holcomb and the Department of Natural Resources sold about 300 acres of land from Yellowwood State Forest to Hamilton Logging Inc. in November 2017. The trees on this land, roughly 1,730, were sold for timber. This action was made after protests by environmental groups, Brown County residents and parts of the Indiana Forest Alliance. Sadly, this disregard for the environment has become a national problem. On Jan. 4, 2017, President Trump reversed a ban on offshore oil and gas drilling. This proposal applies to the majority of the United States’ coastal waters and also includes the water off the coast of California and in the Arctic. This plan goes against what the majority of coastal states want and could have a huge impact on the environment. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said the proposal was meant to increase the U.S’s oil production to “create a new path for energy dominance in America.” This statement makes it seem as though the U.S. is behind the majority of the world in oil production. However, according to Reuters, the U.S. is soon expected to produce 10 million barrels of oil per day. The U.S. ranks third in the world in oil production. This move has been praised by oil executives and lobbyists. Thomas J. Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, said because coastal land is taxpayer-owned, it should be open to drilling. However, Pyle is the one of the

few people to praise this action. Governors from many coastal states on the Pacific and Atlantic seaboard have criticized the changes in the offshore drilling proposals. Republican Gov. Rick Scott of Florida said he wanted to remove the coastal water off of Florida from this plan. The governors’ concern is valid. Offshore drilling can have a huge impact on the environment. In 2010, Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, exploded. This caused the deaths of 11 workers and spilled 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Oil was found in all of the states that bordered the Gulf. Five years later, there were still tar bars on the beaches along the Louisiana Coast, dolphins were continuing to die, and there was oil on the ocean floor. Cynthia Sarthou, executive director of Gulf Restoration Network, said, “The potential impact of it (the oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill) may plague us for decades.” The disregard local and national politicians are showing for our environment is appalling. While land including Yellowwood State Forest and the coastal areas affected by the lifting of the ban may be taxpayerowned, it should be protected so that future generations can appreciate the beauty that we have been able to enjoy. Drilling in coastal areas may produce more oil, just as deforesting parts of Yellowwood will produce more timber. However, the cost of these actions is far greater than any revenue they could produce.




Pardon individuals with marijuana charges as legalization spreads

Was 2017 the year of feminism? Yes and no

Anne Anderson is a junior in international studies

States profiting off marijuana sales should release those currently incarcerated for marijuana charges. Since the legalization of marijuana states such as Colorado have been profiting heavily from sales, with Colorado collecting $500 million in taxes from marijuana. One report from Harvard University economics professor Jeffrey Miron shows that states aren’t the only entity with the potential to benefit from marijuana legalization. By his estimate, even if the sale of marijuana wasn’t taxed, legalization would save the federal government $2.4 billion per year in enforcement expenditures alone, with state and local governments reaping an additional $5.3 billion of savings. And the moral arguments for legalization are even more important than the economic ones. While marijuana is now legal in some states, there are still people in jail for possession of a substance. Like the majority of the criminal justice system, keeping people in jail on charges for sale and possession of marijuana disproportionately affects people of color. When white people are praised for being innovative for their marijuana-yoga classes or their vape prototypes, people of color are still being arrested for marijuana-related incidents. A yoga studio in San Francisco recently started up “Ganja-Yoga” classes open to the public. Classes like these are gaining attention from the media and therefore the public, mostly on social media websites like Facebook and Twitter. Buzzfeed recently conducted a review of said Ganja-Yoga class as if it were a Michelin star restaurant. These reviews and minutelong interviews draw hundreds of retweets and shares. It’s important to realize though weed culture is becoming mainstream, there are people in jail missing out on life for potentially doing the exact same thing. When a suburban mother wants to get high with her friends and do yoga, weed is a green light. Yet when black Americans sit behind bars for the same thing, the picture becomes grim.

On Twitter this week, Josh Billinson, editor of the Independent Journal Review’s The Response, replied to a tweet about fitness and marijuana saying “I have a rule where I don’t read things about hip white people smoking weed and doing yoga in Vogue while hundreds of thousands of Black Americans sit behind bars for nonviolent crimes involving weed.” He hit the nail on the head. Before marijuana was legalized, people of color were being arrested for nonviolent marijuana incidents at a disproportionate rate compared to their white counterparts. This affected teens as well. Last year the Colorado Public Department of Safety released a report showing that from 2012 to 2014 the arrest of white teens in possession decreased by 8 percent — there were 2,016 whites arrested in 2014, down from 2,198 in 2012. However, in that same period of time, the arrests of black and Latino teens in possession of marijuana increased by 58 percent. This is reflected in 1,006 Latinos arrested in 2014, up from 775 in 2012 and 324 blacks arrested in 2014, up from 205 in 2012. Although it seems that the racism involved could not be more blatant, there is more. While black Americans continue to be arrested, white Americans are becoming wealthier off of the same premise. In 2016 an article about Rhett Jordan, Josh Ginsburg, and Peter Knobel labeled these men as some of the “biggest cannabis entrepreneurs” in Colorado’s marijuana industry. Rhett Jordan was quoted in a Denver Post article saying “no one believed in cannabis back then.” The article describes Jordan and his partner Ginsburg as “two misfit 30-something Colorado kids.” These misfit millionaires are gaining attention from the finance world at an alarming rate. Yet when black teens are arrested for marijuana possession, they are described as thugs engaging in criminal activity. It is completely unfair to let people profit off marijuana sales when there are still people in jail for the same thing. It is even more unfair that it affects minorities the most.

As 2017 turns into 2018, we get to look at the biggest successes of the year and compartmentalize what actually is success and what should just be expected. The three highest-grossing films of the year had women at the helm: Emma Watson in “Beauty and the Beast,” Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman” and Daisy Ridley in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” This is quite wonderful, considering these movies were up against projected box office hits like “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II,” “Justice League” and the most recent installment in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. In other categories, such as comedies and limited release, women led there, too. “Girls Trip” was the highestgrossing comedy, and “Lady Bird” was the most popular film to play with limited release. Subjectively, this all looks awesome. Women made many strides forward this year in film, television, music and general society. You could even say that 2017 was a year for women, despite the sexual harassment allegations that occurred. Out of NPR’s top 50 albums of the year, five of the top 10 albums belong to women. 2017 marked Kesha’s triumphant return to music after her four-year battle with

producer Dr. Luke. The #MeToo movement and attack on injustice in Hollywood, the political system and everyday life took greater momentum than ever expected. Looking at all this progress and accomplishments, I should feel good and proud. But there is always an itch at the back of my mind, telling me this is not as good as it could be. When I look deeper at the progress made, I cannot help but notice who is progressing forward and who is being left behind. Out of the three actresses that led the year’s highestgrossing films, only one of them was not white. Even the success of having an Israeli woman lead the year’s best superhero movie

comes with a bitter aftertaste when confronted with her problematic past. To add insult to injury, The Envelope asked six actresses to come and discuss their leading roles from the year, then released a cover photo of the actresses. Every actress was white. Upon backlash toward the actresses who took part in the photoshoot, Jessica Chastain was asked how she could “pose for a photo like this and not feel absolutely mortified by the blatant exclusion?” Chastain responded that she felt terrible about the shoot and had a hard time finding more than five women of color leads in the last year. While she may have recovered gracefully from the backlash, it still raises the glaring issue that this year

of progress for what should have been all women was only one for white women. We can commend the strides made to include more women of color in movies, like Kelly Marie Tran and Tiffany Haddish. We cannot stop there, though. Our first glimpse of 2018 so far looks promising, with movies like “Proud Mary” starring Taraji P. Henson, “Black Panther” with an allstar black-led cast, and Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time.” Success for women cannot be all-encompassing until it is intersectional. I believe we are headed that way, we just need to push harder.


MLK Jr. Day celebrations honor his legacy As students, faculty and staff return to IU’s campuses for the spring semester after the winter break, there is always a lot to look forward to, from new classes to graduation and everything in between. One significant event that occurs relatively early in the new year and should be on everyone’s radar is IU’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration. As usual, it is encouraged that students, faculty and staff participate in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, an IU tradition. These student-driven efforts to give back to the communities surrounding IU campuses truly reflect Dr. King’s message of people coming together.

IU Bloomington’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Breakfast, James C. sponsored by Wimbush the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, will take place 8:30 a.m. Jan. 15 in the Indiana Memorial Union’s Alumni Hall. The keynote speaker will be sociopolitical comedian W. Kamau Bell, host of the Emmy Award-winning CNN show, “United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell.” After the breakfast, attendees can head over to the IMU’s East Lounge, where Bell will be signing copies of his book, “The

Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell,” from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Other speakers include IU Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel; Rev. Harold Middlebrook, a civil-rights activist and friend of Dr. King’s; and John Hamilton, the mayor of the City of Bloomington. Additionally, students, faculty, staff and community organizations will be recognized for emulating Dr. King’s spirit with the annual Building Bridges Awards. There are plenty of other ways to participate on the IU-Bloomington campus, so please see the complete list of Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration activities

on all IU campuses, which can be found online at However the IU community chooses to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King, it’s important that we try to get involved — whether that means engaging in uncomfortable conversations as a spark to creating change, or simply contributing to a cause that benefits others — especially in 2018, as we pay tribute to the great civil-rights leader by commemorating the 50th anniversary of his tragic assassination.

Senior defensive player Grant Lillard head-butts the ball during the NCAA semifinal game at UNC on Dec. 8 at Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia.

Grant Lillard signs contract Men’s basketball finds new identity with Chicago Fire BOBBY GODDIN | IDS

Junior forward Juwan Morgan dunks the ball against Penn State on Tuesday evening in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Morgan had 21 points and 11 rebounds in IU’s 74-70 win against Penn State.

By Andrew Hussey | @thehussnetwork

The shooting wasn’t there again for IU. Outshot by a substantial percentage against Penn State, the Hoosiers would need to find a different way of earning a Big Ten Conference victory. Turning to a style based on toughness and chemistry without sophomore forward De’Ron Davis for the second game due to injury, IU ground out a 74-70 victory over Penn State. After an up-and-down first few months of the season, IU has seemed to find a new identity as IU heads into the heart of conference play. Instead of worrying about the game being beautiful, they have locked in on just trying to win. “There’s other ways you can win the game,” IU Coach Archie Miller said. “You can win the game with stops and with rebounding and win the battle at the free-throw line.” The Hoosiers made up for the lack of shooting by taking care of the ball. Turn-

ing the ball over on just 12.7-percent of its possessions, IU was and played intune with each other. Miller noted that there weren’t any shenanigans from the group as they were keyed on details.

“I think this was the first time this season we’ve been able to string together two consecutive 40-minute efforts.” Rob Johnson, senior forward

While IU only made six threes, each one came at a critical time for the Hoosiers. The only time Penn State took the lead, senior forward Collin Hartman hit a three-pointer and was fouled to pull ahead with 4:41 left in the first half. After controlling most of the second half, Penn State was threatening until sophomore guard Devonte Green hit a three-pointer to put IU back up by eight points.

“I think this was the first time this season we’ve been able to string together two consecutive 40-minute efforts,” senior guard Rob Johnson said. This wasn’t going to be a repeat of the Wisconsin or the Minnesota games where the Hoosiers took leads into halftime and squandered them in the end. Instead, they used a complete performance to earn their third conference victory. “We got soft against Wisconsin,” Miller said. “They got us in the last eight minutes. But up in Minnesota, we were a collective group. I think understanding right now it’s about playing to win. It’s about going and getting the wins.” In a muddled Big Ten, scrapping out victories is the goal for IU. For years, IU has been known as an explosive offense capable of shooting the lights out from deep. The Hoosiers can’t shoot like that anymore, but are finding a new way of finding success in the Big Ten. That comes from an attitude of hard work and effort

that Hartman says is being molded in practice. “We’ve got guys that are ready to go,” Hartman said. “And if you’re not ready to go someone else is going to sub you in. So you just got to come in ready. And that hard working and that scrappy mindset is what we have to have every day and carry over to these games.” When Miller was brought in as head coach, it was expected that he would bring with him from Dayton a new mentality. 17 games into his tenure, IU is starting to show signs that of the new outlook on how to win games. “We weren’t great, by any stretch of the imagination,” Miller said. “But, guys were locked in, playing to win. I think we had a good mindset in terms of that and we’ve got to keep growing.” The rest of January will not be easy for IU. It features the three teams top in the confernce in No. 4 Michigan State, No. 5 Purdue and a surging Ohio State. But first, IU plays Northwestern at home on Sunday at 4:30 p.m.

From IDS Reports

Grant Lillard has signed a homegrown player contract with the Chicago Fire. The team made it official on Wednesday morning. Lillard will be under contract for the 2018 season with club options for 2019 and 2020. “It’s a dream come true to sign with my hometown club,” Lillard said in a Chicago Fire release. “After moving here in high school, this is where I set as my goal to play. It’s an unbelievable experience to have it become a reality. “Even with the Academy, we always talked about what it means to represent the Chicago Fire and wear the badge. To be able to do it now at the senior level and in front of hometown fans is an unbelievable honor.” A captain for the 2017 season for the Hoosiers, a MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, and First Team All-Big Ten were just some of the many acco-

lades accumulated by Lillard in his final year at IU. Lillard anchored one of the best defenses in college soccer this past season, which had 18 shutouts and only let up seven goals in total. He also led the back line to the fourth-longest shutout streak in college soccer history with 966 minutes and 28 seconds. Lillard also scored two goals and had two assists. Lillard is the 10th player in Chicago Fire history to sign a homegrown contract and will report to the team for preseason training on Jan. 22. “Grant was always highly regarded by the club and it’s nice to see that his progression under Todd Yeagley at Indiana University has allowed this signing,” Fire general manager Nelson Rodríguez said. “He has obvious qualities and, with experience and refinement, has a chance to be a dominant player.” Michael Ramirez


De’Ron Davis out for rest of season after undergoing surgery From IDS Reports

After missing the past two games with an Achilles’ injury, sophomore forward De’Ron Davis underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn Achilles in his right leg and will miss the rest of the season, per an IU Athletics press release. Davis started 15 games this season for the Hoosiers and averaged 9.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. His field goal percentage of 61.5-percent was good for fourth in the Big Ten Conference. When Davis first suffered the injury, IU Coach Archie Miller said that everyone would have to step up in Davis’ absence. “All hands on deck,” Miller

said prior to the Minnesota game. “I think every guy on the team at this point in time is going to have to really raise their level of play, like I always say, if you’re working and you stay ready, you never know. When your number’s called, you have to be ready to go. I think there will be some guys with more opportunity here to play.” With Davis out, freshman forward Justin Smith started in the frontcourt. Against Minnesota, Smith had a career-high 20 points in 26 minutes. Struggling with foul trouble in IU’s 74-70 victory over Penn State Tuesday, he did not score in six minutes of action.

“Lady Bird” coming to IU Cinema By Chris Forrester


Senior guard Katelynn Flaherty from Michigan brings the ball up the court. IU lost to the Wolverines on Jan.10, 84-79.



Thome in the paint and then failed to recover back to the shooters. IU couldn’t avoid the momentum-shifting 3-pointers, which is why their longest lead lasted no more than two minutes. Aside from the threepoint line, another gamechanging moment happened with 7:07 left in the fourth quarter. IU senior forward Amanda Cahill fouled out after finishing with a team-high 16 points. Cahill was the secondary defender every time Michigan would dump it in the post to Thome, and with her out, the interior of the Hoosier defense struggled. There was also an aggressive point guard duel throughout the 40 minutes between senior guard Katelynn Flaherty of Michigan and senior guard Tyra Buss. Both are the all-time leaders for their respective schools in career points scored, both stand at 5-foot7 and both wear the number three. As much as people talk about the offense of Buss and Flaherty, it was their defense that shut one another down in the first half. The second half was a different story, however, as the two traded basket after basket late in the third quarter and in stretches of the fourth. Usually, one-on-one duels aren’t ideal in basketball, but when the ball is go-

Like Michigan, Flaherty got the best of Buss, outscoring the Hoosier 23-18. IU freshman guard Bendu Yeaney had a breakout game after struggling the past few weeks. Yeaney scored 18 points and had four assists and four steals. This loss dropped IU’s record in the conference to 1-4 and overall record to 8-10. The Hoosiers will play again at noon on Saturday at home against No. 10 Ohio State, who IU lost to earlier in the year, 85-70. The three games IU has played since the loss to OSU will give the Buckeyes a whole new Hoosier team to prepare for this time around.

Greta Gerwig’s critically acclaimed coming-of-age film “Lady Bird” will be playing at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday evening and 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon at the IU Cinema. Tickets to the film are $4 for IU students and $7 for non-students. Tickets for the 7 p.m Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday showings have sold out as of Jan. 9. The film, which recently took home Golden Globe awards for best musical or comedy motion picture and best actress in a musical or comedy (for Saoirse Ronan’s much-lauded lead turn), comes to the cinema as part of its ongoing International Arthouse Series, which celebrates acclaimed new releases from around the globe. “Lady Bird” follows a young girl named Christine, who prefers to go by the self-bestowed name of Lady Bird, as she navigates the trepidations, tribulations and triumphs of her teenage years in Sacramento, California. The film chronicles landmark events in her life, such as first loves, meaningful friendships and the transition from high school to college. However, it also focuses on her life as part of a low-income family, her Catholic schooling and her tumultuous relationship with her mother, Marion, played by Laurie Metcalf. IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers, who first saw the film at its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, said he fell in love with it the moment he saw it. “This film is universal,” Vickers said. “The stories are universal. The interactions of the characters are universal. It features two strong female characters, which I think is really great, and we need to see more.” He added that the cinema staff tries to fill its In-

ternational Arthouse Series with a mixture of international and foreign films, especially festival favorites. He said “Lady Bird” just seemed like a natural fit. Vickers said he is excited for IU students to have the opportunity to see the film because it is so endlessly relatable, noting that he thinks almost anyone who sees it will relate to the characters in some capacity.

“It features two strong female characters, which I think is really great, and we need to see more.” Jon Vickers, IU Cinema Director

He added that he was particularly impressed by indie darling Greta Gerwig’s work as director. “She tells a story that is simple in many ways, but that is really engaging and quirky and fun and heart-



breaking, but she does it in a way that seems effortless,” he said. Gerwig — who has been quietly making waves in the independent film community as a writer, actress, and occasional co-director — made her directorial debut with “Lady Bird,” which currently rests at a near-perfect 99 percent on movie review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. IU students Sam Higgins and Tom Sweeney, both of whom are self-proclaimed “Lady Bird” fans, said they are excited for their peers to get the opportunity to see the film at the cinema. “I think that people — especially my friends and my demographic — can relate to it,” said Higgins, who’s now seen the film four times. “I would recommend it to everyone.” Sweeney said he agreed with Higgins and added that the film boasted a rollercoaster ride of human emotions. “It was the kind of universal story that anyone can really enjoy,” he said. “It had the biggest laughs and the biggest tears.” Higgins also added that

one of the standout characteristics of the film to him is how immaculately the story is told. Despite the scale of the film’s narrative, he said, the consequences and emotion of the events are involving. Higgins also said he loved the film’s blend of drama and humor, as well as its capacity to exploit a full range of emotions. He said he recalls tearing up several times and laughing even more. Both Higgins and Sweeney added that they loved the performances of the entire cast, including Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan, as well as rising stars such as Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) and Lucas Hedges, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at last year’s Oscars for his performance in the film “Manchester by the Sea.” “Timothée Chalamet was hilarious and insightful,” Sweeney said. “He and Lucas Hedges are the breakout stars of the film.” Both of the two named “Lady Bird” one of their alltime favorite films. “It was the best film I saw in 2017,” Sweeney said.

“Julius Caesar” gets a modern treatment from IU Theatre page 8

Music columnist Hannah Reed writes on new albums coming out later in 2018,


A simple resolution Whether you want to eat healthier, exercise more, stop procrastinating or be kinder to yourself, you can find your perfect realistic New Year’s resolution here. Answer the questions and follow the arrows to find out which resolution you should take on in 2018.

START What is your biggest challenge?

Nothing. I’m a perfect human being.

They’re a useful way to set meaningful goals for the new year.

What is your opinion on New Year’s resolutions?

They’re pointless, and existence is pointless because we’re all going to die and who cares about your fitness plan or bullet journal when you’re dead.

Ease up, buttercup. Maybe someone’s New Year’s resolution should be to be more optimistic.

What kind of exercise do you prefer?

What do you want to find in the next year?

I like to run. Happiness

Yes, actually.

Do you really?

Sign up for a race. Maybe a 5K, 10K or a mini-marathon?

Become a recluse and get a cat. Cats are far superior to humans, anyway.

“Hustle for that muscle” - unknown

Grab a friend and go to weekly cardio kickboxing classes at the SRSC.


Buy a cute planner, embrace your “basic”side and start a bullet journal.

Dance, soccer, basketball — anything that makes me forget I’m exercising.

Which word Pick an inspirational describes how you quote to take with you hope the next year into the new year. will be?


When you start to scroll through social media between classes, stop and take 20 minutes to meditate instead.

As people try to make and keep their resolutions, it’s easy to forget the origins of the holiday, many of which happen to be religious, despite the secular nature of New Year’s resolutions today. Ancient Babylonians are the earliest people known to make New Year’s resolutions, around 4,000 years ago. The Babylonians celebrated the new year in mid-March with a 12-day religious festival known as Akitu. During this festival, Babylonians crowned their new king or promised their loyalty to their reigning king. They also promised the gods that they would pay off their debts, which became what is believed to be the earliest roots of the New Year’s resolution.

As their year started in July, when the Nile River would flood and begin a fertile period, Ancient Egyptians would make promises and sacrifices to Hapi, the god of the River. The Ancient Egyptians believed they would be rewarded with a bountiful harvest, as well as military and financial success.

46 BC: Ancient Rome Under Emperor Julius Caesar, ancient Romans considered Jan. 1 as the beginning of the new year. January was named after the two-faced god Janus, who the Romans believed look backward into the previous year with one face and forward into the coming one with the other face. The Romans made promises to Janus and offered the deity sacrifices.

27 BC: Roman Empire New Year’s was a day for leaders and soldiers to pledge loyalty to the Emperor after Rome became an empire.

500 AD: Europe

Knights in the Middle Ages would place their hand on a peacock in order to perform “The Peacock Vow,” which was an annual renewal of the knights’ vow to chivalry.

1600: Colonial America In the 17th century, Puritans in early America encouraged children to reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the year to come on New Year’s Day. Jonathon Edwards, a theologian who grew up in a New England Puritan community, wrote 70 resolutions, including one that read, “Resolved, in narrations never to speak anything but the pure and simple verity.”

1671: Scotland A diary from a Scottish writer names Anne Halkett that dates back to the 17th century included resolutions inspired by Bible verses, including one that read, “I will not offend anymore.” Halkett wrote this diary entry, which was titled “Resolutions,” on Jan. 2.

1740: England Early Christians continued the tradition of reflecting on past mistakes of the year and hoping to do better in the next. In 1740, John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, created the Covenant Renewal Service, which typically took place on New Year’s Eve or Day. During this night service, attendees would read scriptures, sing hymns and make resolutions.

1813: Boston, MA In 1813, the phrase “newyear resolutions” appeared for the first time in a Boston newspaper. A few years later, a story published in the Irish publication “Walker’s Hibernian Magazine” joked about New Year’s resolutions. The story poked fun at doctors who resolved to “be very moderate in their fees” and politicians who resolved to “have no other object in view than the good of their country.”

World Tour of New Year’s Resolutions The United States has plenty of New Year’s traditions, from kissing at midnight, Times Square celebrations and idealistic resolutions. But people around the world celebrate the New Year a bit differently.

In Spain, celebrators eat a grape at each of the twelve ticks of the clock before the New Year. Each grape eaten signifies good luck for one month of the year. In Spanish cities such as Barcelona and Madrid, people congregate in town squares to eat grapes together.

Festive friends and families often hurl old or unused plates and glasses against the doors of the houses of their friends and family members. Throwing the plates and glasses is seen as a sign of popularity, loyalty and friendship among friends and family members.

Residents in the Hillbrow neighborhood of Johannesburg stockpile old fridges, TVs, microwaves and couches. On New Year’s Eve, people throw old appliances, such as TVs and microwaves out windows. Because of injuries, health authorities distribute first aid kits and basic injury training to community members.

Finns predict the coming year by casting molten tin into a container of water and interpreting the shape the metal takes after hardening. Different shapes mean different things, such as good luck, health, sickness, etc. If the case breaks into pieces, it's a sign of bad luck.

A few days before New Years, shops in Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela start selling colorful underwear. The most popular colors are red and yellow. Red is supposed to bring love and yellow is supposed to bring prosperity. In some of countries, people believe one should wear underwear insideout before midnight and right-side out afterwards.

Coming from Buddhists tradition, Japanese people ring bells 108 times during New Year’s Eve, in the belief that it believes that it brings cleanness. In addition, smiling while going through the first hours of the new year is thought to bring good luck.

IU reimagines “Julius Caesar” Clark Gudas @This_isnt_clark

Four hundred and nineteen years after its first production, IU Theatre’s production of “Julius Caesar” breaks conventions. “Caesar is a woman,” Tess Cunningham, the actress who plays Decia, said. “Julius Caesar” runs at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre from Jan. 19 to 27. Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for the general public. Shakespeare’s tragedy, first performed in 1599, tells the story of political conspirators attempting to overthrow the ancient Roman leader, Caesar, and the aftermath of the event. “The specific things that the director is trying to focus on, at least for the character I’m playing, are the differences in rhetoric,” Michael Bayler, actor playing Brutus, said. “How we address crowds and our peers, those sorts of things.” Under the creative direction of director Jenny McKnight, this particular production is more than just another Shakespeare play, Tess Cunningham, actress playing Decia, said. “I am the only female senator,” Cunningham said. “She spliced some roles together

and created new people. There are a lot more females in the play than are originally allowed.” The set has dilapidated Roman columns and sharp plexiglass structures. Longer character monologues are cut in favor of silhouette shows against a black background curtain that conveys the same

information visually. “You’re watching the attempted crowning of Caesar and you’re watching the battles happen in the background,” Cunningham said. “We were able to cut down a lot of the really dense text that way.” Stairs run down from the stage to the seating aisles,

where characters occasionally perform in. When persuaders, such as Brutus and Mark Antony attempt to persuade their local conspirators and people of Rome, they turn to address the audience. “The show has so many speeches that are addressed straight out to the audience just by nature,” Cunningham

said. “There’s a lot of persuasion, and maybe even manipulation, but largely persuasion.” Another point of ambiguity is in the more modern character clothing, Cunningham said. “The costumes are more modern, and so Caesar has a cape and people have sashes,”

Cunningham said. “I’m in a pantsuit, but I also have a cloak. You’re not really sure where you are, and it could be anything.” The ambiguous tone of the show lets audience members take the action for what it is, Bayler said. “They can have whatever reaches out to them affect them in their own way,” Bayler said. Despite changes to the script, the show still retains Shakespeare’s voice and writing style. “The language is so wonderfully written, but the great thing about the process is to understand the language and how that works,” Bayler said. “The memorization comes naturally because the words feel like your own thoughts.” Between the unorthodox casting, anachronistic setting, cuts and changes, seeing another production of Julius Caesar like this one is unlikely, Cunningham said. “This is something that people can really engage with because of the way we’re displaying it and because of those little changes that have been made,” Cunningham said. “I want it to be something people can really open themselves up and allow themselves to engage with.”

New programs for Black Film Center Clark Gudas @This_isnt_clark

Between film events, screenings and guest speakers, the Black Film Center/Archive on the ground floor of Wells provides diverse programming for the Bloomington film sphere. “We’re here for the preservation, the conservation, of the creative filmworks from people of African descent around the world,” director Terri Francis said. “We’re here for things that are already known as culturally and historically significant, and also those that are not known to be culturally and historically significant.” The free-to-attend film series “Race Swap” will be presented by the Black Film Center/Archive, starting with the 1970 film “Watermelon Man” on Jan. 12. The film starts when a white insurance salesman wakes up to realize he’s turned into a black man overnight. The second film, “The Thing with Two Heads,” will

be screened on Feb. 2. The story follows a cancer-ridden white man who transplants his head onto the body of a black man. The 1972 movie was advertised with the tagline, “They transplanted a WHITE BIGOT’S HEAD onto a SOUL BROTHER’S BODY!” The third film, “Change of Mind” from 1969, will be screened on Feb. 23. The movie tells the story of a white district attorney having his brain transplanted into the skull of a black man and his new challenges involving a racially charged murder case. “All of this is all based on people really feeling like black bodies and white bodies are very different and yet not different,” Francis said. “They really feel like they have a black brain, and that’s not how anything works.” Next is “Cheryl Dunye: Blurring Distinctions,” a program sponsored by the Black Film Center/

Archive. Dunye emerged in the 1990s as part of the New Queer Cinema movement, and was awarded an internationally-recognized Teddy Award in 1996 and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2016. She was part of the directing crew for Queen Sugar, a drama series featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network. A program of shorts by Dunye, created between 1990 and 1994, will be presented on Jan. 21. The program will discuss the influence Dunye had on documentaries and film of the time. “Using a mixture of narratives and documentary techniques, ‘Dunyementary’ challenges social and cultural norms through a sharply funny and reflexive lens,” according to the Indiana University Cinema spring program. Two films directed by Dunye, “The Watermelon Woman” and “Black is Blue,” will be presented on Jan. 22.

“The Watermelon Woman” follows a black lesbian actress in the ‘30s as she tries to answer questions about herself and her future. “Black is Blue” is the story of an African-American transgender man who is forced to confront his pre-transition past. Dunye is scheduled to be make an appearance on campus on Jan. 23. In February, the Black Film Center/Archive will present the Black Film Non-Theatrical, a screening and lecture series with film librarians from other archives revolving around films that were never aired on theater screens. The first librarian from the University of Chicago’s is Greg de Cuir Jr. will present a film series on avante-garde film. Another speaker from the film preservation project South Side Home Movies will be presenting home movies from the ‘40s to the present. UCLA will also host a screening of African-American, LA-based Golden State


Old pictures, posters, and rolls of film are set out on the tables in the Reading Room of the Black Film Center. Located in the basement of Wells Library, the Black Film Center aims to preserve African American-made films and works with IU Cinema to showcase those works to students.

Mutual Life Insurance Company’s films. “This African-American company based in LA took films of their picnics and their day-to-day work,” Francis said. “These are kind of corporate films. That preserves an incredibly rare history.” By having these programs and keeping them safe and accessible, the central mission of preserving AfricanAmerican film history is

helping in its role of historical education, Francis said. “You’re really looking at a kind of space that’s, on the one hand, an oasis, a kind of soft space, a quiet space for contemplating and studying this history,” Francis said. “It’s also very much a battleground space that’s also protecting these materials from being forgotten, and really laying the foundation for filmmakers to build on that heritage.”

JAN. 11, 2018


2018 brings optimism for music


“AM” by Arctic Monkeys was published in 2013. Along with several other music artists, Arctic Monkeys are expected to release a new album this year.

spring semester. The weather that makes us bundle up will quickly turns into weather that places winter coats in the back of the closet, and then taken out again, because this is Indiana, and you never know when winter is truly over. However, one thing will remain during those first weeks and will be a constant throughout the year – music. 2018 is set to be extremely promising in the world of music, and I plan to write all about it. According to BBC, we can expect new music

By Hannah Reed @hannahreed13

The first few weeks of the year are usually put aside for completing resolutions, preparing for a new semester and bundling up to hide from freezing temperatures. All of these things come and go. Soon, resolutions to work out more and stop drinking coffee every morning falter. The semester will be well under way, and even though a few weeks were spent preparing, nothing can help the turmoil that is


from bands like the Arctic Monkeys, Fall Out Boy, Bastille, The 1975 and Muse. NME says we need to look out for Vampire Weekend, Nicki Minaj, MGMT, The Vaccines and CHVRCHES. So far, the year in singles is going well – we have collaborations from Kendrick Lamar and SZA with “All The Stars” and from BØRNS and Lana Del Rey with “God Save Our Young Blood.” It is true that we can expect a lot of new music this year, but most of these albums have release dates that are to be announced, so

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 7 — Rest and recuperate. Plot your course, and plan for different scenarios. Weigh your options, and review past observations. Emotions could run high. Pamper yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 9 — Crazy dreams seem possible. Prepare for a professional inspection over the next few days. Edit superfluous content. Coach your team to victory.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 9 — Figure out finances before committing to an expense. Costs may be higher than expected; still, a tempting opportunity is worth investigating. Get your partner’s view.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is an 8 — Your team is really there for you. Discuss plans, and strategize who will do what. Communication keeps your group project moving. Inspire by example.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is an 8 — The next two days are good for travel, and new opportunities present themselves. Coordination saves time and money. Share resources and go explore.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 9 — Join forces with someone clever and interesting. You can profit from a dreamer’s vision. Create possibilities from thin air. Share love and goodness.


I cannot say exactly which bands I will be writing about this semester. I can only hope it will be at least a few of them. In addition to writing about albums new and old throughout the semester, I will be writing about something a little different. Starting Jan. 16 when I touch down in London town (“American Boy” by Estelle and Kanye, anyone?) where I will be studying abroad for the semester, I will be on the constant look out for live music as I travel to new places.

My fingers are crossed for free live music in little cafes and on street corners — the dream in every city — but I am not afraid to pay a few pounds to see some great musical performances to report back about. The bulk of my time will be spent in London, but I have plans to make my way to Paris, Ireland and Scotland, among many other places I have not exactly nailed down yet. I spent last semester writing about all different kinds of albums and making playlists to go along with

every article. This semester, I plan to do the same. I made an upbeat playlist for the start of last semester, and I think it will work well for the start of this semester, too. You can listen to it here. I cannot wait to get started next week by writing a review about a crew that released three impressive albums in 2017 — BROCKHAMPTON. Next week, you can expect a review of SATURATION III as well as what kind of music I, hopefully, will have seen in London by then.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) —Today is a 9 — Get moving and get your blood pumping! Exercise energizes you. Healthy food and practices recharge you. Put your love into your work, and it blossoms.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is an 8 — Creative projects advance over the next few days. Write, express and share your views. Connect with your networks, and share resources with each other.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 9 — You’re especially strong and creative. Outdoor recreation is in the realm of possibility. Talk and action align to forward a personal project.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — Plan some fun and involve people and places you love. Relax, and enjoy the company. Someone nearby is looking especially good. Let them know. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 7 — Settle into a comfortable domestic phase. Cook your favorite treats for your family. Make messes and clean them. Fill your home with love and beauty.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 9 — There’s money to be made today and tomorrow. A rush job could pre-empt regularly scheduled programming. Don’t overspend. Push for more authority and clout. © 2017 By Nancy Black Distributed by Tribune Media Services, INC. All Rights Reserved
