Student affairs start for Casares
Calling him out People phone Gov. Mike Pence about their periods Erica Gibson firstname.lastname@example.org | @erica_clare05

week after Gov. Mike Pence signed the controversial abortion bill House Enrolled Act 1337 into law, his office fielded a call from Sue Magina. “That’s M-A-G-I-N-A. It rhymes with —” “I’ve got it,” the operator said. Sue Magina is the fake name one woman uses to call and update Pence on the state of her uterus. “I just wanted to inform the governor that things seem to be drying up today,” she said. “No babies seem to be up in there.” The woman, who preferred not to disclose her real name for privacy reasons, runs the Facebook page Periods for Pence. Through it, she encourages supporters to call Pence and tell him about their menstrual cycles. Periods for Pence started after a conversation between its creator, a 39-year-old woman and mother of one, and her husband. She had read through HEA 1337, which Pence signed into law March 24, and seen coverage of it on the news. She said she thought the bill was ridiculous. “If they want to know what’s going on down there, I should tell them everything,” she said. “Yeah, you should,” her husband replied. Under HEA 1337, women are prohibited from seeking abortions based on race, gender and possible fetal abnormalities. They also must attend an ultrasound screening 18 hours before the procedure and listen to the fetal heartbeat. Abortion providers are now required to cremate or bury fetal remains from both abortions and miscarriages. The bill states, “human physical
Before Jason Casares was named associate dean of students and deputy Title IX director of IU, and before he was accused of sexual assault, he worked in student affairs at several universities around the country. Casares received bachelor of science degrees in criminal justice and sociology, as well as master’s degrees in sociology and student affairs Jason Casares administration in higher education from Ball State University. At Ball State, Casares was involved in multicultural events and affairs. “I have known Jason since graduate school,” said Andrea Mitchen, a graduate of Ball State’s student affairs administration program. “He is a highly motivated, social-justice advocate who I have seen grow into an amazing family man and contributor to the field.” Casares was publicly accused of sexual assault in February by Jill Creighton, assistant director for global community standards at New York University. Creighton, then the presidentelect of the Association for Student Conduct Administration, said Casares took advantage of her at an ASCA conference in December 2015. Shortly after being placed on paid administrative leave, Casares resigned from his University position. Upon reviewing the last 17 sexual assault hearings, dating back to Aug. 15, 2015, that Casares worked on, IU announced Monday the initial findings and rulings will stand. After graduating from Ball State, Casares moved to Lubbock, Texas, to assume a position at Texas Tech SEE CASARES, PAGE 6
IU splits 2 games against Purdue 1-0 4-6 Jake Thomer firstname.lastname@example.org | @Jake_The_thomer
IU visited Purdue for two games Tuesday and earned a narrow win in the opening game before losing the second and splitting the doubleheader. In game one, IU (21-14, 4-4 in the Big Ten) freshman pitcher Tara Trainer returned to her winning ways after picking up a pair of losses against No. 2 Michigan last weekend. The freshman from Lebanon, Ohio, threw a complete game shutout and allowed just one hit during the Hoosiers’ 1-0 win against the Boilermakers (21-16, 3-5). Trainer struck out seven, walked three and retired the final 14 batters she faced. The only hit she allowed was a bunt single to Purdue senior CJ Parsons. The Hoosiers scored their only run of the game after sophomore outfielder Rebecca Blitz reached base on a throwing error and made it to third base while the ball bounced around in right field. Blitz scored on a sacrifice fly hit by junior utility player Erin Lehman. “Tara really had control of the game from the get-go,” IU Coach SEE IUSB, PAGE 6

The Periods for Pence creator wondered if her monthly cycle counted as an abortion under the law. She created the Facebook page on March 28, wrote a couple posts and called Pence’s office in the morning. “Good morning,” she said, based on an account posted to the Facebook page. “I just wanted to call and let the governor know that I am still not pregnant, since he seems to be so worried about reproductive rights.” She’s called once a day every week day since. “I try to be humorous with the calls,” she said. “I don’t want to harass them. I say, ‘Here’s the daily update: today’s a good day, today I had cramps.’” Initially, she said she wanted to let Pence and other pro-life legislators know she was watching, she was disappointed and she votes. Since its creation, the page has amassed nearly 20,000 likes and prompted calls to Pence’s office from Hoosiers as well as Floridians, Minnesotans and Ohioans.

Student to continue Portraits of IU page By Sanya Ali email@example.com | @siali13
Portraits of IU began as a Facebook search. Senior and page creator Mai Ngô said a love for the popular Humans of New York page led her to search for the IU equivalent in 2014. When she realized the page did not yet exist, Ngô had a decision to make. “I was like, ‘You know, I like photography and I love this page,’” Ngô said. “I was trying to find a good way to spend my time. I wanted to find that thing that was something valuable, so I decided to go for it.” Two years after starting the Portraits of IU Facebook page, Ngô will graduate with a degree in marketing and sustainable business and leave the page under the care of sophomore Tracy Luther. “I was really excited because I’d heard of the page before and I knew that she did it,” Luther said. “I’d never really thought about being a part of it before. She approached me, and I think I immediately responded, ‘Oh wow, thank you so much. This is really exciting.’” Ngô said her decision to start the page was not so quick. She said she had to traverse some personal barriers before she could take on such a large project. “Despite my career choice and Portraits of IU, I’m actually not that much of an extravert,” Ngô said. “Talking to people and stuff like that actually takes a lot of energy for me. It’s been fascinating and I really enjoy it, even though it’s a lot of effort.” Ngô said HONY’s concept always interested her because of how it showcases the people as reflections of a city and on the individual level.

Mai Ngô, left, talks with Tracy Luther on Tuesday at Showalter Fountain. Ngô started Portraits of IU in 2014 to take photographs of the diversity of people on the campus and introduce them on Facebook. Luther is planning to continue her project after she graduates this spring.
By starting such a page for IU’s campus, Ngô said she hoped to make the large campus community feel more familiar. “College campuses, a lot of the time, are very interesting centers that draw in a lot of different people,” Ngô said. “Especially on a big campus like IU, there are a lot of things going on.” There is not much strategy involved in choosing people to feature on the page, and Ngô said she reserves judgment when she approaches people for Portraits. “If I’ve learned one thing from this, it’s that you can’t expect
anything from people’s appearance or what they’re doing because everyone has a story and it’s better to go into it with no expectation and keep an open mind,” Ngô said. Luther said his first few stories for Portraits of IU have taught him a similar lesson. “It’s been interesting getting to know the diverse groups of people we have on campus and what matters to people in different ways, and getting to know there’s more than you see in people,” Luther said. Ngô said the popularity of
pages like HONY means people are less hesitant when she approaches with a camera and questions. Some people are able to open up after a brief interview, while others require a little more effort to tell their stories, Ngô said. Luther added that before he started photographing, he and Ngô met to discuss strategies for making people comfortable and which questions to ask, as well as general aesthetic for the page. Ngô said one of her New Year’s resolutions was to increase her SEE PORTRAITS, PAGE 6

Jennifer Thuma, director of Victim Services for Greg Zoeller, Indiana’s attorney general, speaks about the sources and statistics behind human trafficking Tuesday in the State Room East of the Indiana Memorial Union. “The Hidden Reality: An Interactive Program on Human Trafficking” included an interactive process that led participants through various countries where human trafficking occurs.
Human trafficking takes toll By Hannah Rea email@example.com | @rea_hannahj
During an interactive look at human trafficking, students with paper “passports” walked around the room and visited “countries” where victims of human trafficking may have traveled on their journeys. Lives of victims were condensed to a few sentences on strips of paper. One strip told the story of two young boys traveling from Egypt to escape the destruction. Another spoke of a poor girl from Thailand who was sold to a brothel. Yet another was a boy from Brazil who was almost sold as a child prostitute to a tourist during the World Cup, but escaped. Jennifer Thuma, victims advocate at the Indiana attorney general’s office, led the discussion in a talk called “The Hidden Reality: An Interactive Program on Human Trafficking” at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the East and West Staterooms of the Indiana Memorial Union. “Victims are everywhere, in every country,” Thuma said. “What I tried to bring to you was something very real.” The stories students traced were based on real people, but the names were changed for privacy. The display was the result of a partnership between the Indiana attorney general’s office, IU Student Association, IU’s United Nations Association and the
Middle Way House. “Sometimes it’s hard to engage with an audience on a topic this serious,” said Katelyn Lipa, a crisis intervention service coordinator at the Middle Way House. An interactive display allows people to see it unfold in a more personal way, Lipa said. Around the room, tables were set up with information about countries commonly involved in the human trafficking industry. Brazil and Russia are countries with the highest number of victims. Under the wide umbrella of human trafficking are many different types, Thuma said. The event focused on three: sex trafficking, bonded labor and child labor. Thuma described bonded labor as a situation in which an individual with a debt attempts to pay off that debt by working, but the interest rates in the host country make this impossible. As a result, the individual is forced to continue working. The cause of this is simple, Thuma said. “That’s the name of the game – money,” Thuma said. “Human trafficking is the second-fastest-growing criminal industry in the world.” It produces about $150 billion per year, according to the Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans task force. Another country with high rates of exporting victims of human trafficking is the United States. “In the U.S., about 80

percent of trafficking victims were born here,” Thuma said. It even happens in Indiana, Thuma said. IPATH reported that more than 100 tips of human trafficking were called in during 2014 alone. One of the most successful tactics traffickers use to entice poor victims is the promise of jobs. Children and teens who have no better option or who need to support their family may feel they have no other choice, Thuma said. Unlike drug smuggling, which leaves physical evidence, human trafficking is harder to trace. “It’s not as easy to see a trafficking victim who might be right in front of your eyes,” Thuma said.
Some people find it hard to believe that victims would continue to live in horrible conditions in which they work for almost nothing and are continually threatened or abused. However, the average age of a trafficking victim is 12 years old, Thuma said. “Once someone has been victimized as a traffic victim, that can go on for years,” Thuma said. If someone has been a victim since childhood, they may not know of any other course of life, Thuma said. “We believe that those are victims who need help,” Thuma said. “We’re one big world and whatever we do impacts someone else. There’s a lot of hope, I think, that survivors can give us.”
IFC opens philanthropy to non-greeks By Austin Faulds firstname.lastname@example.org | @a_faulds9615
About 8,720 men in the United States will be diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2016, according to a report from the American Cancer Society. About 380 U.S. men will die of this disease in the same year. Statistics like these led the Interfraternity Council at IU to create a philanthropy campaign with the Movember Foundation, said Jesse Scheinman, the IFC vice president of communication programs. The Movember Foundation helps fund testicular and prostate cancer research, mental health and physical activity, Scheinman said. The Foundation is the No. 1 global provider of testicular cancer research programs, according to its website. For this philanthropy project, IFC collaborated with the Panhellenic Association to involve more students in the cause, said Madi Lasson, PHA director of service. This will be the first time
IFC and PHA team up for a major philanthropy event, Lasson said. In addition to this new pairing, IFC recently opened an online application for philanthropy liasons, Scheinman said. This application will be open to all IU students, greek-affiliated or otherwise. Because such a significant amount of people are affected by testicular and prostate cancer in the U.S., Scheinman said, it only made sense to be inclusive with the application process. “Since it affects so many people, I think it would be counteractive to not open the application to others,” Scheinman said. Non-greek students can also provide original perspectives to help with the project, Scheinman said. The liaison application will be open until April 17, and more than 30 people have applied so far, Scheinman said. The liason will help promote the No Shave November philanthropy event before and throughout the
month, Lasson said. The IFC and PHA hope to have a liaison at each chapter promoting the event to IU students and faculty, Lasson said. “The plan of this liaison is to bring forth a sense of community through advertising, planning and marketing of this philanthropy,” Scheinman said. For the application process, Scheinman said the philanthropy council is more interested in personal passion than philanthropy work experience. However, he said he does encourage the latter. “We’re looking for people who are passionate about philanthropies and passionate about the issues,” Scheinman said. In order to raise money for the project, Lasson said those participating in the event will have individual fundraisers. The liaisons will be helping each of these participants raise money. Within their own chapters, Lasson said IFC and PHA hope to see younger members get excited about the initiative. “It tends to be the babies
who are most excited about doing stuff for their chapter and the greek community,” Lasson said. Lasson said IFC and PHA hope to be able to team with the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Panhellenic Council for the project. However, because both councils have very few members, they have less money to support the project. Regardless, Lasson said she still hopes to work with MCGC and NPHC to make the project stronger. “I think we’re so lucky here at IU to have a greeklife community of this magnitude,” Lasson said. “We have so much power, and we need to utilize it.” Lasson said she believes a unifying philanthropy project with so many organizations and students coming together can be beneficial not only to the cause, but also to IU greek life as a whole. “This could make us all the much stronger,” Lasson said. “That’s why I’m so excited about it.”
Americans are dissatisfied with Congress’ lack of progress, according to a survey conducted by the IU Center on Representative Government. While many are receptive to the challenges Congress faces, most feel members of Congress are failing to do the necessary work to actually achieve change, the study found. To the question “Overall, do you approve or disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job,” 81 percent of respondents said they disapprove. When asked, “Who do you think is more responsible for the policymaking gridlock in Washington,” almost two times as many people say Congress is the primary culprit than those who blame President Barack Obama exclusively. The annual survey covers public perceptions of Congress and is overseen by Edward G. Carmines, Rudy Professor of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences. “Americans recognize there are a lot of diverse opinions in the country, and that those opinions are often reflected in Congress,” Carmines said. “But they do expect Congress to make some progress. Its policymaking capacity is just not very evident. When Congress seems to be immobilized, playing politics so much of the time, unable to address the country’s problems, there’s a diffuse disappointment and even anger that attends to the institution.” Although progress is expected, the poll showed people understand some issues are too partisan to easily achieve a compromise. Less than half of the public expected members of Congress to compromise on abortion and gun control. But by contrast, a majority of those surveyed said compromise should be possible on national security, immigration, health care and taxes. “Americans recognize that trying to get agreement in Congress is not easy,” Carmines said. “It’s very difficult. There are lots of different solutions, lots of different priorities. But they expect Congress to at least work at it and not to simply exacerbate differences on major problems facing the country.” More than 75 percent of those surveyed said either special or self-interests motivate most members of Congress. When asked if “information from my members of Congress is trustworthy,” 54 percent disagreed. To the question “Do members of Congress listen and care about what people like you think,” 62 percent said “No, not most of the time.” In the grading portion of the survey, the public consistently gave Congress D’s:
Americans frustrated with lack of progress How would you compare the polarization of Congress to the polarization among the American public? Is the public... Equal Less polarized More polarized
Overall, do you approve or disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job?

a D on “keeping excessive partisanship in check” and “controlling the influence of special interest groups”; D+ grades on “dealing with key issues facing the country” and “holding its members to high standards of ethical conduct” and “conducting its business in a careful, deliberate way.” The survey suggested the American people would be patient if Congress prioritized thoroughness over speed. When asked, “Is it better for Congress to pass legislation quickly and efficiently, or take the time to consider issues thoroughly and carefully,” 83 percent chose the “thorough and careful” path over speed and efficiency. The 2015 findings are based on a nationwide survey of 1,000 people conducted in November and December by the Internet polling firm YouGov Polimetrix. Taylor Telford

Locals watch movie about gerrymandering By Cody Thompson Comthomp@indiana.edu @CodyMichael3
The words “help slay the gerrymander” were printed on a slip of paper in the Monroe County Public Library on Tuesday night. At 6:30 p.m., the League of Women Voters of Bloomington-Monroe County and the Monroe County Public Library collaborated in a showing of the movie “Gerrymandering.” Gerrymandering is the redistributing of district boundaries in ways that favor one party over another and gives that party more influence in the federal House of Representatives as well as almost all local government elections. The current president of the local League of Women Voters, Kate Cruikshank, gave a short introduction before the movie started. “If you think about it, if you’re setting it up in that way, you’re ignoring the fact that within any district there is diversity,” Cruikshank said. “Someone who is elected is elected to represent 100 percent of the people.” The redistricting commission in Indiana is made up of the speaker of the House, the chair of the House committee on elections and reapportionment, the president pro tempore of the Senate and the chair of the Senate committee on elections and an appointment by the governor — all of these members in Indiana are from the Republican party, Cruikshank said. The League of Women Voters is a local, state and national nonpartisan organization that originated during the time between the passage of the amendment that granted women’s suffrage and its ratification, Cruikshank said. It is an organization that initially helped educate women on the voting process to get them involved with elections,
she said. Now the organization helps people with voter registration and voter education. It takes positions on issues after much scrutiny and study, Cruikshank said. The League of Women Voters is seeking to promote a nonpartisan, neutral committee in charge of redistricting, Cruikshank said. Redistricting occurs every 10 years after the census takes place, which means legislation to implement a neutral committee must be complete by the next census in 2020, Cruikshank said. She mentioned the passage of House Bill 1003, which introduced an interim study committee that evaluates the potential consequences of a change in the redistricting process, which includes the possible introduction of a redistricting committee, according to the Indiana General Assembly website. The study committee was supposed to perform a comprehensive study on redistricting policies in other states, Cruikshank said. A report was supposed to be completed by Dec. 1, 2015, which failed to happen, she said. The interim committee has met once on Oct. 1, 2015, Cruikshank said, and members were startled by the large amount of people present. “One of the things I hope will come out of this movie is that people will be inclined to take action and to write the chairman of the committee to just tell them, ‘We care about what you’re doing. We want to see an independent redistricting committee in Indiana,’” Cruikshank said. Present at the event was Bloomington resident Dan Morelli, 62, who is a member of the group Reverse Citizens United. He said the group aims to reverse the Citizens United Supreme Court decision in 2010 that allowed corporations to spend an

unlimited number of funds to promote political candidates. Morelli said he was present because the movie was on a topic he is interested in and it is something people don’t often hear about in the media.
“It’s really terrible that these politicians can get together and just, without regard to population and what the people want, and just create these things for their own benefit so they can have a safe
seat,” Morelli said. Gerrymandering is a major issue, Cruikshank said. The only way to get the interim committee to take action is through public pressure because all of the House
members on the committee are up for reelection this fall, she said. “The question is whether you feel that representative democracy is worth caring about,” Cruikshank said.
IU law professor discusses death penalty in Parker case By Hannah Alani firstname.lastname@example.org | @HannahAlan
Two weeks ago, Kyle Parker, 22, allegedly kidnapped, raped and murdered 15-month-old Shaylyn Ammerman in Spencer, Indiana. He was arrested after he reportedly confessed to his stepfather that he hid the baby girl’s body in a remote area of Gosport, Indiana. He is on suicide watch in the Owen County Jail, and a trial is scheduled for August. Death row is reserved for the “worst of the worst,” said Jody Madeira, IU Maurer School of Law professor and capital punishment scholar. “If you can’t have the death penalty for this, what can you have it for?” she said. But Owen County prosecutor Donald VanDerMoere II has not yet said whether he will pursue the death penalty as punishment for Parker. In a rural county with few financial and institutional
resources and a strong pro-life culture — that is, pro-life for children — VanDerMoere Kyle Parker has a hard choice, Madeira said. “A lot of death-penalty cases are very expensive to try,” she said, noting the taxpayer fees associated with appeals, defense and prosecution hours, changes of venue and the lethal injection itself. “You have a pattern here where you haven’t had a death-penalty case in a long time, and it’s hard to get up everyone to speed on how to try them and how to defend them,” she said. These logistical concerns clash with the culture of prosecution, Madeira said. Indiana, like Texas, California and several southern states, pursues the death penalty more often than other states, she said.
“You have resources and infrastructure tensions on one hand, and the culture on the other,” she said. “And he took the life of a baby.” Shaylyn’s death launched a community response in the small town of Spencer. A meme of Parker’s face with the text “Share if you think Kyle Parker should receive death penalty” is circulating on Facebook and Twitter. Madeira said she has seen it and understands the culture perpetuating the reaction. But research actually shows executions have very little effect on crime deterrence and community retribution. However, as a mother, Madeira said she would want Parker dead, too. “I would say, ‘Give me 15 minutes in a room alone with him,’” she said. “I’m not proud of that part of myself, but it’s a human part.” As a taxpayer and legal expert, though, she would not
be surprised if VanDerMoere does not pursue the death penalty for Parker. “It’s not an easy choice,” she said. “There are good and bad outcomes for each side. But I don’t think it’s because of how we would feel seeing this guy die.” Any prosecutor feels “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” when determining this punishment, Madeira said. “A prosecutor who’s elected will try to make decisions to keep the community as safe as possible,” she said. “Is that protecting fiscal resources? Or is it taking a stand and doing something you haven’t done?” A history of death penalty in Indiana All executions in Indiana prior to 1913 were by hanging. Indiana then began using the electric chair, which ended in 1994 with the state’s
electrocution of convicted murderer Gregory Resnover. Death-row inmate Tommie Smith received the first lethal injection in 1996, followed by 17 more lethal injections from 1996 to 2009. Indiana conducted five executions in 2005, more than in any year since 1938. Years can pass before death-row inmates are executed. Matthew Wrinkles was convicted at 35 of gunning down his brother-in-law, his brother-in-law’s wife and his own wife who wanted to divorce him in Evansville, Indiana. He was sentenced to death in 1995 in Vanderburgh County. He and the families of the victims waited for 14 years until the state slipped Wrinkles the lethal injection in 2009. For his final meal, he requested prime rib, a loaded baked potato, pork chops, steak fries, two salads with ranch dressing and rolls. His death is Indiana’s most recent
capital punishment case. Much of Madeira’s research has focused on the execution of the convicted terrorist Timothy McVeigh, who killed 168 people when he detonated a truck bomb in Oklahoma City in 1995. McVeigh was executed in Indiana. Madeira studied the reactions of the parents of children who died in the bombing. Many of them wanted McVeigh killed, no questions asked. But they wanted that before realizing they would be tied to years of appeals and trials that would force them to relive the memory. After the execution the survivors and parents said they felt disappointed and angry for not receiving the kind of closure they expected, she said. “Victims’ families often feel they have to be spokespeople for the victim,” Madeira said. “They feel that they need to be there, to testify on behalf of that person.”

Clinton and Sanders on fossil fuels
ILLUSTRATION BY MORGAN ANDERSON | IDS
When the votes don’t add up WE SAY: Arizona should be investigated for potential voter suppression in the primaries On March 22, Maricopa County, Arizona, conducted what could be one of the worst presidential primaries in recent memory. Several news outlets, including CNN, the Boston Globe and US Uncut, reported voters had to endure four to five hour wait times in order to cast their ballot because Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell reduced the number of polling stations by 70 percent since the 2012 primary. When asked who was to blame for the long lines, Purcell responded, “Well, the voters for getting in line.” Though Purcell later accepted responsibility for the fiasco, her initial reaction was to blame voters for exercising their constitutional right. This response suggests to the Editorial Board that some level of corruption occurred in Maricopa County and that it ought to be investigated by the Justice Department, as requested by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. In addition to the long
lines, US Uncut reported that “voters who had previously registered as Democrat were instead listed in the voter database as ‘Independent,’ ‘No party listed,’ or even ‘Libertarian,’” which prevented them from being able to vote in a closed primary. At a voter suppression hearing in Maricopa County last week, one citizen said, “The corruption has become so established that it got comfortable, so comfortable that it got lazy, so lazy that you got caught.” Indeed, the Editorial Board believes the mistakes in Maricopa County deeply corrupted the outcome of the entire Arizona primary. More than 60 percent of the Democratic votes from the Arizona primary came from Maricopa County alone. In a county that claims to have over 1.9 million registered voters, Bernie Sanders lost by only 38,000 votes, or 15 percent. We believe that the voter suppression that occurred in Maricopa County could have only benefited Hillary
Clinton. Low-income individuals can’t afford to take an entire day off work to stand in line for five hours. Poor, white, working-class people generally prefer Sanders over Clinton. If many of them weren’t able to vote, Sanders lost votes. Early votes cast weren’t affected by the egregious voting procedures on primary day and early voters tend to favor Clinton over Sanders. Retired individuals who don’t work wouldn’t lose money spending their Tuesday in line at the polls. That demographic generally prefers Clinton as well. Students who attend school at all hours of the day, work part-time jobs on the side, and have homework to complete couldn’t afford to waste five hours in line. Again, this is a demographic that generally supports Sanders. Independents, another group that tends to support Sanders, weren’t allowed to vote in Arizona’s primary
either. Past primaries in this election cycle have shown that when voter turnout increases, Sanders does better. Voter turnout in Maricopa County was less than 33 percent. On election night, with less than 1 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press declared Clinton the winner. Thousands of people were still in line waiting to vote. It’s easy to imagine that, upon hearing Clinton declared the winner, Sanders supporters with hours left to wait before getting to vote probably went home. So when you combine all of these elements in Maricopa County, it’s not unreasonable to believe their results could have fundamentally changed the outcome of the Arizona primary had this voter suppression not occurred. And for that reason, the Justice Department should investigate Maricopa County for its unconstitutional behavior and allow a revote June 7 for the county residents.

This new device could change the course of women’s health forever. The possibility of it being sold is exciting. However, Tariyal’s experience as a female engineer trying to get funding for new female health technology highlights sexism and the disparity in female representation in the health technology industry. Taryial, in collaboration with her business partner Stephen Gire, has patented a device that contains menstrual flow and converts it into medically testable samples to provide women with at-home testing for various medical conditions. Many people, including Taryial, wonder why such technology hasn’t been pursued before considering menstrual blood contains vital
medical information. The reason Taryial is the first engineer to pursue this research is not only due to her experience of living in a female body. But is also due to a lack of concern for improved female health technologies a male dominated field. Since 1976, men have invented thre out of every four patents on tampons. While it is easy to discuss the absurdity of men designing products only used by women, the reason for this absurdity stems from the fact that female inventors face obstacles to patenting that male inventors don’t. A 2012 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found 92 percent of all patent holders are men. A 2006 study by the American Association for the Advancement of Science found that women in the life sciences, such as healthy technology, are patenting at a rate that is 60 percent less than men. A large reason why women patent less has to do with the fact that women don’t
have the social networks and connections men do. Professor Toby Stuart of the Haas School of Business at University of California Berkeley spoke about this phenomenon by saying, “A prominent male faculty member may make noise at a university’s technology transfer office if he doesn’t get what he wants, and he also has relationships outside the university and he’s more likely to know venture capitalists. Meanwhile, a female professor doesn’t tend to know as many people in the industry” reported the New York Times. Aside from not having as many connections, female engineers and scientists have a hard time getting funding for female healthy technology, just like Taryial and her business partner, Gire. Taryial recalls her experience in finding funding and told the New York Times in an April 4 article, “Someone told us that the product would only help women, and women are only half the population- so what was the point?”

Hopefully everyone can see the benefit in helping half the human population with at-home and minimally invasive-medical testing. Helping any percentage of the population with medical issues is important for the progress of the human race. Taryial’s story of struggle to get her new female health technology patented and funded demonstrates the need for female engineers in the life sciences. Not only do we need more females in life sciences, we need them to design technology for female health. The more women represented in the sciences, the easier it will be for women to create a community and network that can begin to overcome the disadvantages of being female in this world. email@example.com @RachelCMiller1

As the race for the Democratic primary continues, civility appears to be running out for both candidates left in the contest. The latest spat between the campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is about whether or not Clinton has taken significant amounts of campaign contributions from those who work in the fossil fuel industry. Last Thursday at a campaign event in Purchase, New York, an activist working for the environmental organization Greenpeace asked Clinton to stop accepting donations from the fossil fuel industry. At this point Clinton stated, “I have money from people who work for fossil fuel companies. I am so sick, I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me.” Granted, this exchange looks as polite as a scene from the TV show Downton Abbey compared to the Republican race. But it does raise the question of whether Clinton has accepted fossil fuel donations in the past or not. Clinton has received money from people who work in oil and gas industries, but Sanders has as well. And both of them have received very little in general from the industry in comparison to their Republican colleagues. “The Clinton campaign has received nearly $308,000 from individuals in the oil and gas industry. The Sanders campaign has received nearly $54,000,” the Washington Post reported. While these numbers may seem like Clinton has received a substantially large amount of money from those industries for

her campaign efforts, they do not accurately represent how much those donations are in comparison with the rest of her fundraising efforts. According to the Post, just 0.15 percent of the campaign and super PAC money supporting Clinton has come from the oil and gas industry. It’s extremely difficult to see how less than one-fifth of 1 percent of campaign contributions from fossil fuel industries can significantly influence a politician’s views and proposed policies on the subject. If progressives are concerned with who can best protect the interests of our environment, it’s Republicans they should be worried about and asking questions of at campaign events. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the oil and gas industries have given just 2.3 percent of their contributions to Democrats. Almost all of the rest of the contributions have gone to the Grand Old Party. I’ve appreciated the overall politeness from the two Democrats still competing. But as the battle for the nomination continues, I’m not sure arguing over who has taken money from oil and gas industries is the best use for the candidates’ and voters’ time and effort. It looks like there will be far bigger fights over this issue and more in November. email@example.com @tfitzwrites
NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS
The rise of the word democracy Once upon a time, President George W. Bush gave speeches declaring his “commitment to democracy” around the world. More recently, Hillary Clinton took to Facebook to applaud a Supreme Court ruling on voting districts, saying, “in our democracy, every one of our voices should count.” Probably without realizing it, both Bush and Clinton repeatedly reference a great linguistic issue that has lurked in American politics for years. They call the United States a democracy, but this is no democracy. This is a republic. Democrats and Republicans alike mix up those terms, and the mix-up has become significantly more common over time. Thanks to the Google Ngram Viewer, an online tool that measures the relative frequencies with which certain phrases appear in published works throughout history, we can map out how wording has mutated over the centuries. In the 1800s, the era of the Founding Fathers, books written in English used “republic” nearly nine times more often than “democracy.” Move forward to 2008, the most recent year of the Ngram Viewer’s data, and the shift in language is stunning. In the modern age, “republic” has fallen by the wayside and “democracy” now appears in print four times more often than its counterpart. Comparing “Republican” and “Democratic” shows the same unmistakable pattern. I doubt this change in verbiage was a coincidence. The dramatic rise of “democracy” began in the early 1900s — the height of the Progressive Era. During this time period, the U.S. moved closer to democracy.
CHRIS MITCHELL is a junior in accounting and marketing.
The 17th Amendment allowed voters to elect senators instead of state legislatures, and the women’s suffrage movement culminated in the 19th Amendment blocking sex-based voter restrictions. These positive, democratic changes in American politics may explain the sudden popularity of the word “democracy” in English writings. For some reason, though, our language never returned to normal, even though the Progressive Era stopped well short of transforming the U.S. into a full democracy. Citizens don’t hold direct power, our elected leaders do. Many staples of American governance, such as “majority rule, minority rights,” are also products of republican principles. It’s worth noting the Framers never used “democracy” or any form of the word in the U.S. Constitution. They understood democracy, in its original meaning, brings with it bitter consequences such as popular tyranny, which arises when there is nothing to stop a majority group from invading others’ rights. For better or worse, though, people still call the U.S. a democracy. This mistake is so widespread it’s often not considered a mistake nowadays. At least we can find solace in the fact that incorrect labels shouldn’t change our system of government any more than childish namecalling should change a person. As long as we recognize the underlying values that form our republic, the words we choose to describe them are less important. But they can be wrong. firstname.lastname@example.org @AtlasMitchell

FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH
Predatory tactics hurt the vulnerable
A safe anti-Trump strategy for the GOP
Many of us have encountered the proverbial shady salesman at one point in our lives. The one who will mislead you into thinking that investing in his “multi-level marketing” plan will conjure money out of thin air with little effort. Many who buy into this pie in the sky delusion are left feeling cheated and financially ruined. We all know these manipulative types are out there, but what we may not realize is that we are constantly exposed to advertising from an industry that employs many of the same deceptive techniques to drive sales: for-profit colleges. Companies like ITT Technical Services, Devry Education Group and Apollo Education Group have enticed low income students with promises of an expanse of career options and high-paying jobs. More often than not, these are either extremely misleading or entirely untrue. If the legal history of the for-profit college industry is any indicator, maybe it’s time for more oversight. On April 4, it was reported that Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey filed a lawsuit against ITT Tech, a leading for-profit college. The lawsuit alleges that the company, which operates more or less like any business, provided false statistics regarding job placement rates among graduates of its Computer Network Systems program. ITT Tech claimed that between 80 and 100 percent of the program’s graduates earned jobs, but the firm did not disclose the misleading criteria it used in its calculation. It considered anyone earning a job remotely related to computers a

successful hire. The real number was determined to be closer to 50 percent. Some careers included department store sales associate and customer service associate. Graduates should consider applying for jobs in the corporations that have educated them, where CEOs and other upper-level executives earn seven-figure salaries. Corinthian College has also faced more than its fair share of legal proceedings and investigations. In 2015, campuses were shut down following a $30 million fine from the U.S. Department of Education for providing fraudulent statistics, as well as displaying a “blatant disregard for the federal student aid program,” according to Huffington Post. These firms’ exploitation of those in search of an education and a better life is disheartening. Even more, many of those who attend these institutions typically do so out of a lack of other options. Despite accounting for only 13 percent of federal student loans, students at for-profit colleges are victim to nearly half of all defaults. The predatory nature of the system should be clear by now. As light is shed on the unsavory tactics of these pseudo-universities, students and governments are becoming more keen to their tactics. This issue is systemic and must be dealt with now. For-profit colleges, you’ve flunked out. firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a right way and a wrong way to #DumpTrump. Perhaps it is a consequence of the echo chamber, but there are rumors circulating that the Republican establishment plans to force a brokered convention where Donald Trump’s delegates can jump ship after the first inconclusive round of voting, which would allow them to support a less polarizing candidate, perhaps one not even currently running. This is perhaps the worst possible course of action for the Republican party. Voters have grown used to politicians failing to meet campaign promises. Voters are used to politicians moderating and joining the machine when they get to Washington. Voters are even used to well-connected and monied interests supporting candidates they themselves don’t.
However, voters are not accustomed to having their clear and decisive voice ignored and overruled by those who think they know better. Going forward with an anti-Trump strategy that actively seeks to override primary voters in a non-democratic contest may be the anvil that snaps the camel in half. As the punditocracy has explained, Trump has ripped open the rift between the GOP base and their elites. This rift always existed, but now the grassroots have a standard bearer and are more organized. With arcane convention rules or convoluted state delegate distribution methods, tactics that will surely be branded as insider maneuvering, the powers will lend credibility Trump’s next step. Does anyone really think Trump would not run third party if given a semi-
legitimate claim to do so? This is all the casus belli, or justifying war, Trump would need to permanently damage the Republican party. With the Trump brand established in most states, it would be simple for him to rally supporters that are already upset with the insiders. If Trump is given victim status, it’s conceivable that voters supporting other candidates who lose momentum after the convention may join him. Trump’s camp is not the only place to find people fed up with Washington. Cheating him out of the nomination confirms many voters’ conceptions of self-dealing elites manipulating the base. If Trump is to be stopped, he must be stopped through the primary process. The only practical route to do this is to support Ted Cruz. This is likewise a

candidate the so-called establishment finds unacceptable. However, the GOP cannot claim the merits of being a democratic operation without also facing the setbacks. There are legitimate concerns about having Trump as the frontman for a political party. Time would be better spent identifying why there is such a difference in policy preference between party leadership and the mass of voters and how to patch it. As far as this election is concerned, if the people are to choose, then they must be free to choose poorly. email@example.com
Jordan River Forum LETTER TO THE EDITOR
CRAZY IS MAJORITY RULES
Naturalness bias Last month, a Scientific American article drew attention to a phenomenon called the “naturalness bias.” This bias refers to the widespread preference for individuals who seem to have a natural knack for their activity, as opposed to strivers whose achievement is seen as the product of hard work. As tired a topic as this may be, the recent study shows the pervasiveness of this bias across disciplines, meaning very few areas of human endeavor are free from it. Most of us have encountered this type of bias to one degree or another, whether or not we recognized it at the time. Additionally, it’s very common to hold this bias while explicitly saying naturalness has no effect on the merit of an individual’s work. In this way it’s a very difficult issue to pinpoint at times, because even if a person feels they are above making judgments based on perceived naturalness, there’s a decent chance they’re fooling themselves. What’s more, there’s a better than decent chance a trade-off will be made in order to recruit a natural rather than a striver for any given activity. “Participants were willing to make a substantial tradeoff in objective achievement, and they were more willing to select the natural even if it results in costs to themselves through the hiring of a less-qualified individual,” according to the study So not only is the bias ubiquitous and difficult to recognize, it’s potentially very damaging to the people who hold it. Granted, this is only true when the naturally talented individual really is objectively less high-performing.
JACOB WORRELL is a freshman in neuroscience.
Perhaps in anticipation of this particular objection, the article points out a natural is actually less likely to be high-achieving than a persistent striver. Given this information, we can infer this bias is more likely to harm us than help us. So far all of this can probably be intuitively fleshed out by the casual observer. We have a tendency to see potential in people who display natural talent as compared to people who simply apply themselves, so the findings at least make a little sense. But what I wanted to know immediately upon reading this article was why I had never formally heard of this bias. Even for those of us who recognize something like the naturalness bias in ourselves and others probably don’t think of it as a pervasive force in human decision-making. And yet here it is. While there isn’t a whole lot anyone can do about seemingly intrinsic facets of human nature like this, simply being aware of the naturalness bias makes us more likely to recognize it in ourselves. Given its ubiquity and robustness, coupled with the fact that it hasn’t really surfaced in the public eye, the naturalness bias has great potential for insidiousness in the realm of social judgment. But recognition of its influence on our decision making would make it much less likely to push us toward potentially errant decision-making. firstname.lastname@example.org
I must admit, I am 35 years old and have never voted. I have always believed the system is corrupt, my one vote does not count and that nothing will change. Donald Trump has opened my eyes. I have been searching for faith in humanity as each primary is held across the country. My Social Welfare Policy class has helped me to understand the processes, given me a safe place to discuss my concerns and my fears and,
more importantly, taught me how to listen to the other side, though I don’t agree. I have listened, watched, read and discussed Trump and his supporters. I will admit listening to the other side can be very difficult. All sides are fueled with fear, passion and hope for a better future but it seems like Trump’s side also has hate. What frightens me about Trump is the level of bigotry, racism, discrimination
and oppression of Muslims, Mexicans, women, etc. I believe those who have held the power for so long is in fear of losing that power, which has incited violence and deeply rooted beliefs and ideas to surface. We thought we had progressed from racism. I will be voting in May and in November. I hope many young people vote, because I didn’t exercise that right for many years. Voters aged 1829 are the least represented,
and my age group, 30-44, is second to least. So, those of you aged 18-44, I urge you to make history and break the historic trend of being underrepresented. Even if Trump is not the nominee, I thank him for waking me up. I stand with Muslims. I stand with Mexicans. I stand with women. I stand with the oppressed. Jessica Troxel Bloomington, Ind.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Reading your editorial “You do the math this season,” I had to remind myself that it was April 1. I laughed, because that piece read exactly like a satirical article, whether or not that was the intent. I have made my choice, and it was ridiculously easy. If Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the nominees, of course I will hold my nose and vote for Clinton, not because I like her but rather because I can’t imagine the irreparable harm a Trump presidency would do to the United States. If Clinton wins the Democratic nomination and someone other than Trump wins the GOP nomination, then for the first time in my over-40 years of voting, I’ll stay home during a national election as Clinton will be a shoo-in.
Here’s why. On a practical level, I have received many communications from the Sanders campaign, and no communications from the Clinton campaign, even though I have been a registered Democrat since 1972. Kind of hard to support someone who has ignored your existence. I am also attracted to the fact that Bernie Sanders is employing a people-powered campaign fueled by millions of individual contributions. As in 2008, Clinton is employing a network of rich contributors, and employing the DNC machine, run by a person heavily involved in her unsuccessful 2008 campaign. It is very telling that when she drew 250 supporters to a rally in Wisconsin, Sanders was attracting 7,000 supporters to a rally he had in
Wisconsin. This is a pattern which has been repeated nationwide. People do not like to be spoon-fed who they should support. Fear and ignorance are no way to run a campaign, yet it is a method employed by Clinton. It should be noted that in the 2008 contest, at this point, Clinton found herself in a similar situation with Barack Obama. The math was indicating a victory over President Obama was extremely unlikely. Yet she did not withdraw from the contest until June. Using that precedent, Sanders should be offered the same courtesy. He has many supporters who deserve this accommodation. Clinton is not the worst candidate, but she is flawed. Let’s face it: she is running on
brand familiarity more than on her accomplishments. She has made many questionable decisions in her tenure as a public servant. The length of her public career is eclipsed by Sanders by many years, and Sanders’ record of public service equals Clinton’s record for sure. Many voters, including myself, are greatly offended by her sense of entitlement and inevitability. Political service is not a reward. It must be earned. I would question how many of the IDS’s editorial board were actually able to vote the first time Clinton ran, in 2008. The tactics she is employing are the same. As they say, “Fooled me once, shame on you. Fooled me twice, shame on me.” Richard Cleary Bloomington, Ind.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR On Monday, March 28, I got to meet a young lady driving a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. She drove through a stop sign at 11th and Woodlawn and hit me. I was driving a Kubota. You’ve seen the orange vehicles driving all over campus. Mine had lights on and a yellow strobe light on the roof, and has a max speed of 18 mph. She hit me in the right front wheel and passenger door, pushing me into the oncoming lane, over the curb and stopping 25 feet away on the sidewalk. It could have
been much worse; I could have been flipped, pushed into oncoming traffic or hit a pedestrian standing on the sidewalk. I’m lucky — just bruised and very sore. I have no idea why she did not see me, what she was doing or why she didn’t simply stop at a sign that has been there for years. She said she was going to class, and since we are creatures of habit, she has probably been that way before. My point for all of this
is every day I see students, staff and faculty trying to do too many things at once. Headphones, earbuds and cell phones are a major problem. No one pays any attention to their surroundings or safety. People walk down the middle of streets instead of being on the sidewalk two feet to the left. Taking 90 degree turns with no warning off a sidewalk and straight into the road and traffic (which usually leads to me being flipped off because it’s my fault).
Let’s not forget running stop signs and stop lights (BIKES!). No one watches out for your safety like you should. Put your stuff away, watch your surroundings and pay attention! Obey the rules of the road. No one should be in so much of a hurry they can’t slow down or stop when required. You are not that important that you can ignore the law and safety of others!

Luther said Ngô directed him and had him light and control the smoke for the photographs, which produced a distinctive series of images. In terms of standout stories from her time with Portraits, Ngô said there were many, though one in particular always jumps to the forefront. She said she once
asked a student who in his life affected him most. “He told me about this best friend who he met at a gym here in Bloomington when he transferred down, about how this best friend really helped him,” Ngô said. “Then, he told me about how this best friend recently passed away and how that also impacted him significantly as a person — that friendship and that loss.” Ngô said pages like HONY and Portraits are important because in a time where superficial identity
markers such as race and gender can be the cause of conflict, taking the time to learn about individuals is an important step. “As humans, it’s easier for us to make quick judgment,” Ngô said. “Pages like this do a good job of showing people that’s not the reality, that people are complex, not just what they look like or their background. Even if someone fits certain parts of your stereotype, they still have a complex personality and part of their life that you can’t know until you talk to them.”
Casares arrived at IU’s Office of Student Ethics in August 2011 after working toward his Ph.D. in higher education administration from the University of Arizona. He worked at IU for about five years until his resignation in February. The sexual assault allegations against Casares have prompted mistrust in students who feel they have been mistreated by the system. Freshman Hailey Rial filed a complaint to the Office of Civil Rights. She claimed the Office of Student Ethics failed her during the trials. Rial said Casares broke the news to her that there was not enough evidence to
prove her attacker was guilty. She said the process she went through was unfair, stressful and minimal. “I think if they can stop violating Title IX, I think that they can be better,” Rial said last month in an interview with the Indiana Daily Student. “They have to stop drawing things out and treating survivors the way that I was treated and that they should treat survivors the way that they’re supposed to be treated.” Casares lives in Bloomington with his sons and wife, Sarah Casares, who is an IU employee at Foster Quad. He has not responded to interview requests, and the
University has denied all requests of personnel-related files on a basis of a code under the Indiana Access to Public Records Act stating such records are not subject to mandatory disclosure. The University and Office of Student Ethics also said they cannot comment on the details of the ongoing Title IX investigations conducted by the Office of Civil Rights, among other personnel and sexual assault-related cases. “I am incredibly sad that he was destroyed by the media over an allegation that will hopefully one day be revealed as false publicly,” Mitchen said. “I hope he will be able to tell his story.”

You just move on.” The two teams traded two-run homers in the sixth and seventh innings, with senior infielder Michelle Huber’s providing IU’s last two runs on a home run in the last inning. The Hoosiers fell to the Boilermakers 6-4 when they failed to add on in the final frame. Penn State (17-14, 6-0) travels to Andy Mohr Field this weekend to play IU in a three-game series. The Hoosiers will have a chance to gain ground in the standings on a team that is several games ahead of them. It will be the last in a stretch of three consecutive weekend series at home to begin the Big Ten schedule for IU. The Hoosiers will spend the following two weekends on the road.

Nathan Kane, composer of local band Whale Bones introduces the Toyota RAV4 they drive for show tours Monday in the front of the band house on Jordan Avenue. Kane said they had to stay in the car for most of their time when they were on show tours. They have driven the SUV for two years.
Local band discusses the pros and cons of being on the road By Abigail Gipson firstname.lastname@example.org | @apgipson
A dream catcher hangs from the rear-view mirror. “My grandma gave that to me to catch all the bad vibes,” Nathan Kane said. There’s a series of white scratches on one of the wheel wells. “We’ve actually already got racing stripes on this side,” Paul Lierman said. “That’s a custom job. You can’t just walk into a shop and expect that kind of detail.” Kane and Lierman of local band Whale Bones went on tour in January along with band members Nick Pinder and John Tatom. Whale Bones relies on a silver Toyota RAV4 to get them from show to show. In the back, there’s what Lierman called a “smuggler’s hatch,” which usually holds skateboards and jumper cables. They used both on their tour through the South in January. In a new city, they usually have a few hours to explore, Kane said. “It’s a bit like a vacation with none of the convenience,” he said. They normally stay at the houses of friends or people they met at a show. In Gainesville, Florida, Kane said they found an abandoned bank and skated in the parking lot. When they were leaving Gainesville, the car wouldn’t start, Lierman said, so they called AAA and had them jump it. Kane said he drove around for 45 minutes to charge the car, but after he turned it off, it wouldn’t start again. They didn’t have much gas left, he said, so they could either fill up and
call for another jump at the gas station or try to make it on what they had. “We just booked it all the way to Orlando,” Kane said. They stopped at a Wal-Mart to buy jumper cables and left the car running in the parking lot. “It was like time trials,” Kane said. “How quickly can we buy these jumper cables and not waste gas?” But the most stressful moments aren’t always the most dramatic, Lierman said. The scary moments are ones like a long, late-night drive from Grand Rapids to Chesterton in the snow, he said. * * * Also in the car are swim trunks, trash, a Zune mp3 player, an auxiliary cord and Evanescence’s album “The Open Door.” “We run a tight ship,” Lierman said. In terms of music, Kane said they’re pretty good at taking turns with the aux cord. “There’s a few songs that everybody gets super hyped on every time,” Lierman said. Notably, “Alright” by Kendrick Lamar. They bring bananas, trail mix and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. If they’re feeling fancy, they’ll get fast food or go to a buffet. A band favorite is Cook Out, a southern chain. It’s cramped in the car, they said. They have to fit gear in their trunk, which sometimes takes up seat space. Lierman said he once sat on the floor of the back seat, which was horrifically uncomfortable. “It’s like Tetris every single time,”

Kane said. In some ways, it’s more fun having a cramped car because they don’t have the option to be secluded, Lierman said. “It’s sort of like when mom makes you eat dinner with your family,” Lierman said. And on stage, familiarity can make for a better experience, Kane said. “I think you get to know each other differently,” he said. “It definitely brings you closer.” * * * They bought the car two years ago, Kane said. It will go on its fourth tour this May. Kane and Lierman are both graduating this spring. They met at Collins Living-Learning Center, Kane said. The first time they hung out, they went through each other’s iPods and discovered they had similar music tastes, specifically the Canadian band Secret and Whisper, Lierman said. They started playing together on Kirkwood Ave. and Walnut Street. Kane said they would scrape up enough money to buy something from a food truck. Now, the band is self-sustaining and not-for-profit, Kane said. Whatever money they make from a show or sales goes back into the band. “It’s a labor of love,” he said. “We want to give as much as we can to the band.” They recorded their first EP their junior year and played their first show at the Bluebird, Kane said. “It’s sort of an addictive thing,”
he said. “You want to keep playing. You don’t care who you’re playing for.” * * * The car isn’t named. “It hasn’t earned it,” Kane said. “Maybe the Silver Fox.” Kane’s parents, who are supportive of the band, helped him buy it, he said. They believe in Whale Bones’ music, and they know the band is doing what they think is best. Touring, making music, planning shows — it’s all time consuming, Lierman said. The day after last Christmas, they went to record, Kane said. And the day after New Years, they went on tour. “You do have to make decisions,” he said. “You can’t spend a lot of time with your family sometimes. You’re spending it on the road, which is OK.” Lierman said for a while they toured during every major school break. “Even four-day weekends, we’ll try to hit up a couple states,” he said. During fall break, they went north to Milwaukee and Grand Rapids. During winter break, they went on their tour of the South. In the summer after graduation, they plan on going to the New York area. Maybe in the fall they’ll go to California, Kane said. “Hopefully we’ll get all the states in, hit Alaska eventually and Hawaii,” he said. “That’s the goal.” A free day on his calendar should be filled by a show, Kane said. “I just want to be on the road as often as I can,” he said. “I’m excited to do the band 100-percent, all the time. I’m past the point of what-ifs. I want to just do it.”

This year’s show will be wild, fun and interactive, according to the Buskirk-
Chumley website. Design submissions are open to all skill levels. Also, the runway models are allowed to participate regardless of experience or body type. Trashion Refashion received submissions from children, IU students, high school students, adults and regional professionals, according to the BuskirkChumley website. The entries “become more challenging and inspiring each year” because of the many demographics, according to the Trashion Refashion website. The event is a two-part show open to all ages.

Hoosiers trying to spark offense in rematch By Zain Pyarali firstname.lastname@example.org | @ZainPyarali
Just as the Hoosiers thought their fortunes had turned for the better, a threegame losing skid, including a conference series loss to Rutgers, has kept IU at .500 approaching the halfway point of the regular season. Going 3-for-28 during the three-game losing streak with runners in scoring position hindered the Hoosiers’ ability to push runs across the plate. Even with the offensive struggles, IU was able to break out with three home runs and nine runs to take the final game of the series against Rutgers. “We just need to be getting the big hits,” sophomore outfielder Logan Sowers said. “We’ve been rolling whenever everyone is hitting well, but when we’re struggling to get hits early on. We just need those guys to spark the lineup and get it going for us.” The Hoosiers’ losing streak started last Tuesday at home against Cincinnati when they were shut out for the first time all season. IU Coach Chris Lemonis and sophomore outfielder Laren Eustace attributed the loss to being lackadaisical and not focused in the field. On Wednesday, the Hoosiers will travel to Cincinnati to play the Bearcats once again, a team the Hoosiers believe they stack up well against. “They’re ready to play and that motivates you,” Lemonis said. “We didn’t play well collectively, just the whole group, so we want to redeem ourselves a little bit.” Freshman Jonathan Stiever will grab the starting nod for the Hoosiers against the Bearcats for his second start of

the season. The freshman has already logged 16 innings in his first season in Bloomington while sporting a 1.69 ERA. In Stiever’s first start of the season against Butler, he was efficient on the hill. He allowed only one hit through four innings on 38 pitches. Lemonis said it’ll be a very split game pitching-wise, like the majority of the midweek games have been because of the big weekend series
coming up against Purdue. The biggest thing Lemonis said he believes the team needs moving forward is consistency. The talent is there but for one reason or another, the few dependable players in the Hoosiers’ lineup can’t seem to get things going on a daily basis. “We’ve got some guys in there, and you see it in the second game that Logan Sowers hits a jack and Craig De-
delow has the chance to be one of the best players in the league,” Lemonis said. “We’re trying to be very accountable to ourselves and each other and just try to get it moving in the right direction.” Another contributing factor to the Hoosier struggles at the plate has been the decline of production coming from a freshman bat that was very dependable early in the season.
Freshman utility man Luke Miller has watched his batting average tank from around .320 down to .263. Lemonis said he isn’t too worried about his freshman slugger, though, and attributed that to nothing more than hitting a wall after having to come out and play 60 games in a season. As for now, the Hoosiers are looking to grab consistent at-bats from the middle of the order so they are capable of
competing with anyone every time they step between the white lines. “When we play a midweek game it’s usually going to lead into us having a strong weekend series just from how we play,” junior relief pitcher Jake Kelzer said. “When you come off a weekday game and play solid, you’re going to have a good next practice which is going to lead into a good next weekend.”
Freshman stepping up in battle for starting quarterback By Brody Miller email@example.com @brodymillerIDS
Another week of IU spring football means another update in the quarterback competition. Last week, the story was that junior Richard Lagow and sophomore Danny Cameron had earned the top two spots and taken over most of the reps. After practice Tuesday, coaches spoke about freshman quarterback Austin King proving himself more and earning snaps in practice. IU Coach Kevin Wilson mentioned last week the Georgia native may not have been putting in the extra time necessary to develop. So, after one day of getting less time, Wilson said he noticed a greater sense of urgency from King. “The last couple days, you know, Austin King’s actually looked nice and really did in the scrimmage, too,” Wilson said. The problem, Wilson said, is King and Lagow look good
during plays once the ball is snapped but don’t know what they’re doing in between plays. The opposite has been the consistent praise of Cameron. Wilson and IU offensive coordinator Kevin Johns both talk about how Cameron has the best command presence and has been good at leading the offense before the snap. He’s also been called the most consistent. With King, it has been a matter of the mental aspects of the game. Johns said he has all the physical tools to be a “really, really good player,” but needs more time grasping the offense and getting more experience. “Man, when he knows what he’s doing, he can rip it as well as anybody,” Johns said. The same has been said by Wilson and Johns about Lagow, which is why Johns said the staff feels good about the quarterback competition. He considers it a matter of time and development rather than ability.
Spring injury updates Junior running back Camion Patrick, whose transition from receiver to the backfield has been watched all spring, is out of practice with a knee injury, Wilson said Tuesday. Wilson said there is no timetable for a return and did not elaborate on the severity of the injury. IU defensive line coach Mark Hagen alluded last week to an injury to junior defensive lineman Robert McCray III. Wilson confirmed McCray III has turf toe and has been limited with a cast. Sophomore receiver JShun Harris and sophomore defensive back Andre Brown are both limited to no contact due to injuries suffered last season. Harris tore his ACL last summer. Sophomore linebacker Dameon Willis Jr. is also limited to no contact after a shoulder injury. Mixed reviews on scrimmage performance At the IU team scrimmage

Linebacker Zeke Walker (6), Oliver Marcus (44) and safety Chase Dutra (30) tackle Ohio State’s Jalin Marshall (7) on Oct. 3, 2015, at Memorial Stadium. The Hoosiers lost to the number-one-ranked Buckeyes, 27-34.
Saturday, Wilson said he thought the defense played well and evaluated the game as a win for the defense. New IU defensive coordinator Tom Allen, on the other hand, was not as satisfied. Wilson said Allen didn’t think the defense turned the ball
over enough and gave up too many big plays. He wasn’t happy with how the group finished and didn’t want to name the defense as winners. The secondary brings back a large group of players who earned time last season due
to the long list of injuries. IU had the worst pass defense in the Big Ten last season, but Wilson is seeing some growth. “I see them making more plays,” Wilson said. “At the same time, I see them where they’ve got to keep coming along.”
Many former IU players playing professionally From IDS reports
A former IU baseball player started for the World Series favorite on opening day. Kyle Schwarber, a catcher at IU from 2012 to 2014, started in left field and batted sixth in the Chicago Cubs 9-0 win against the Los Angeles Angels. After a quick rise through the minors in his first full season of professional baseball, Schwarber was called to the majors last year to help the Cubs get into the National League Championship Series. In total, 14 former Hoosiers debuted for various MLB organizations, and one other played for an independent team. Josh Phegley
is the only other former IU baseball player on a major league roster. He is listed as a catcher for the Oakland Athletics. Phegley was among the first group of players recruited by former IU Coach Tracy Smith, who is widely credited with bringing the IU baseball program into national prominence. Other players who were part of that group and are now in AAA include Jake Dunning, Alex Dickerson and Micah Johnson. A few of Schwarber’s former teammates on the team that went to IU’s first-ever College World Series in 2013 are also scattered throughout various levels of professional baseball.
First baseman Sam Travis is with the Pawtucket Red Sox, the AAA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Travis was a non-roster invitee to spring training this year and drew comparisons to current Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. Pitcher Aaron Slegers started the year with the Chattanooga Lookouts, the AA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins. Players from that College World Series team who are playing at the A level include players Scott Effross, Christian Morris, Joey DeNato, Dustin DeMuth and Ryan Halstead. Michael Hughes

LIVING LA SEVILLA LOCA
Celebrating a 21st with a splash of the Spanish vibe ALYSON MALINGER is a junior in journalism.
The six-hour time difference was the hardest adjustment for me on Saturday night. April 2 — or, as I refer to it, Aly Day — celebrated the 21st anniversary of my life on this Earth. The 21st is such a big event in the United States. Thirteen represented the start of teenage years. Sixteen represented the start of driving, depending on the state. Eighteen represented adulthood. Twentyone represents alcohol and the start of actual adulthood, being almost finished with college and ready to enter the real world. Although I do feel old calling myself 21 years old, it was anticlimactic compared to how it may have been in the U.S. I had always had a vision of how I would celebrate my 21st birthday ever since I could remember. I wanted to start the day in New York City with a group of my closest friends and family and go to the Plaza Hotel for an adult tea party, showing that 21 years of life can be a classy experience, at least in my mind. Then, that night my friends and I would go to the top bars in the city and show off my new, horizontal ID to everyone that wanted to see it. When I was 10 years old, I can’t say I had the idea that I would actually be celebrating this day in Seville, Spain, instead. This just gives me a reason to celebrate this birthday once again when I return home. In reality, the day was still considered classy in my
head, with a splash of the Spanish vibe. During the day I slept in and had my lunch awaiting me in the kitchen, like a regular Saturday afternoon. Later, I went shopping with a friend and treated myself to some clothes, all adding to the Spanish look I have been striving for since the day I arrived. That night, instead of a tour of the top bars of the city, I thought outside the box and went on a tour of tapas instead. Tapas, the traditional way to eat in the Spanish culture, is a series of small plates allowing everyone to have a taste of each dish and leave not feeling satisfied but not stuffed. I picked an area known for good food and a young crowd and invited anyone home for the weekend to join me. I did my research and made a list of about eight different restaurants, all in a circle around the selected plaza. Although the night felt very different to the picture in my head growing up, it was still a great evening. While I am excited for the 21st year to have more meaning in a little over a month or so, I am excited to have this memory from Spain to keep with me. Everyone remembers their 21st birthday, or at least what they planned to do, and now my memory will be in the

IU basketball recruits invited to play in Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic From IDS reports
Two incoming IU basketball recruits, De’Ron Davis and Curtis Jones, will play in the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic, taking place April 15 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.
This is the ninth consecutive year an incoming IU recruit will participate in the event. Last year, the trio of freshman center Thomas Bryant, and freshman forwards OG Anunoby and Juwan Morgan all played together for the first time at the Derby Classic.
Davis is a 6-foot-10 forward from Aurora, Colorado, who won two straight 5A state titles with Overland High School and was named Mr. Basketball for Colorado by the Denver Post. He finished his high school career with 442 blocked shots
and is a four-star recruit. Jones is a 6-foot guard originally from Virginia who played his last two seasons of high school basketball with Huntington Prep in West Virginia. One of those seasons was played with Bryant. He also came from the same AAU
program as Iu junior forward Troy Williams and sophomore guard Robert Johnson, which is coached by Williams’ uncle, Boo Williams. Jones is also rated as a four-star recruit. Both Davis and Jones will also play in the Night of
Future Stars on April 14 at New Albany High School in New Albany, Indiana. Tickets for the event can be bought through ticketmaster. com or through the Freedom Hall box office. Michael Hughes
