Experimental expression Ballet department to present original student choreography By Maura Johnson | @Maujo997

“Ballet at the BCT: The Choreography Project” will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the BuskirkChumley Theater. The free event will showcase the work of student choreographers in the IU Ballet Department. Thirty-four choreographers auditioned for the show, and 21 were chosen. Director Sasha Janes said his role in the show has been to guide choreographers in their pieces. He is there to make suggestions on the structure of pieces, rather than on the content of students’ dances. “It has to be their piece,” he said. Junior Nicholas Gray choreographed a dance called “Choosing Happiness.” The piece features two songs by folk band Birdtalker, “Heavy” and “Want.” Gray said he classifies his dance as something you’d see more on a theater stage than a ballet stage. A challenge for him was getting his

dancers to go back to what it’s like to dance as a human in the community, rather than a ballet dancer. Gray said he tried to spend most of his time fostering intention in his dancers, and getting an emotional response from them, instead of working on perfecting moves in the style he choreographed. He said he hopes the dance is a cathartic experience for both his dancers and the audience. “I think, because it’s not super about the dance technique and such, they have to really hit it home with the message and the meaning,” he said. Sophomore Claire Donovan picked out the music for her piece in December and began choreographing it a month ago. Her piece, called “Blues Run the Game,” features a song by the same title. The dance is a pas de deux, a dance between a boy and a girl, she said. In the dance, you can’t tell who is giving who depression, or the blues. “If you have ever known any-

one with depression, like even if you get better, you still carry it with you,” she said. Both Gray and Donovan are performing in other dances in the showcase. Donovan said with dancing, it’s about repeating movements and perfecting it. Ballet dancing and choreography can both be an emotional outlet, she said, but choreography is an outlet in a different way. “You’re deciding what other people are going to do, so it’s more natural and unique to what you want, as opposed to when you’re dancing, you’re creating that movement from what other people want you to be doing,” she said. Donovan said sometimes it’s difficult to choreograph when you have an idea for a dance. “It’s almost like writer’s block, you feel like you can’t get it out,” she said. She said when going from dancing all day in regular dance classes to choreographing a dance, she got

stuck in the same movements. She said it’s helpful when you teach the dancers the dance, and they can help you move on and get out of your head. Janes said audiences can expect an eclectic array of movement at the show, and that many of the dancers have strong voices. “Some of them are just experimenting with movement, but some of them have something that they want to say with regard to their movement,” Janes said. Gray said his piece features dancers wearing backpacks of different colors. In the first section of the piece, the dancers come forward to express something they want and are sad in some way. The backpacks represent their burdens, which they throw off in the second section of the piece. The original title of the piece was supposed to be pessimistic, he said. He changed it to represent choosing to be happy. “I think that I’ve adopted that attitude in my life as well,” he said.

Interactive sculpture ‘not human, but alive’ By Emily Isaacman e | @emilyisaacman

Bristling white fronds, tubes of geometric wiring and fluid-filled glass bulbs hang within a creaturelike installation swooping above the central staircase in Luddy Hall. Brightly lit by small LED spotlights, the structure whispers, vibrates and flashes light in response to movements in its surroundings. The sculpture's name is Amatria. “It provides an engaging, interactive, computerized environment that feels not human, but alive,” Ph.D. student Andreas Bueckle said. Portions of the interactive art installation can be seen from any vantage point on the fourth floor of Luddy Hall, the state-of-theart facility that opened in January 2018 and houses the departments of computer science, information and library science and intelligent systems engineering. Canadian artist and architect Phillip Beesley calls his work sentient architecture, referring to the combination of art, architecture and intelligent system technology that composes the seemingly living landscape. Engineering and Information Science professor Katy Börner met Beesley at a conference two and a half years ago, and she helped enlist his work as Luddy Hall was being constructed. He visited campus several times over the past few years to plan and assemble 3-D-printed materials, artificial intelligence and sensors for the installation. Amatria is an intelligent system that gathers, processes and reacts

to information from its surroundings, reflecting the core of the Intelligent Systems Engineering program with which it shares a home, Bueckle said. In addition to enhancing the building’s public space, Bueckle said Amatria will serve as a learning tool for students, researchers and public visitors. Beesley invited students, faculty and community members to volunteer in building and installing pieces of the massive structure. Junior Clara Fridman said it was difficult for her to imagine how the tiny sticks, whiskers and branches she worked to assemble would fit into the final product. “Those are the parts you don’t think about when you see the finished picture,” Fridman said. Although its clear thicket of interlocking wires and bulbs appear dense on first glance, closer inspection reveals an intricate network of tiny parts.

ization, will use the sculpture to teach data visualization, which is the presentation of data through pictures and graphs. Bueckle, whose research focuses on data visualization literacy, said bioengineers, neuroengineers and researchers in his field have expressed interest in using the artificial organism for research. “People have a natural curiosity towards her,” Bueckle said. He worked closely with Beesley to develop an app called Tavola to work in tandem with the sculpture. While the app is not yet available for public use, Bueckle said it will eventually help teach visitors why and how Amatria acts the way it does. The app has two features, which Bueckle refers to as stories. The first story displays a zoomable, rotatable 3-D model of Amatria to help visitors locate and understand its technical aspects, such as

sensors, speakers and microprocessors. The second story depicts how two of Amatria’s 18 infrared sensors respond to movement in its surroundings in real time. These sensors, distributed in six pods of small, low-hanging black boxes around the sculpture, measure distances to foreign objects and generate reactive lights, sounds and vibrations nearby. Amatria’s constant shifts and noises cause many passers-by to slow their tracks, heads craned upward and mouths gaped open, as they emerge from the stairwell beneath it. Some stop to take pictures or videos with their iPhones. Others take cautious steps beneath the canopy, observing how it reacts to their movements. One man waved his hand above SEE LUDDY, PAGE 6

Daniel Messel, already serving 80 years for the murder of IU student Hannah Wilson, was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday for attacking another student. Messel, 52, originally faced five charges stemming from a night where he allegedly threw a law student to the ground, sexually assaulted her and punched her in the face — hard enough to make her spit blood and knock the contact out of her eye. On Tuesday, the woman addressed him in court. “You’ve had power over me for quite some time,” she said. “You don’t have it anymore.” Messel pleaded guilty to an amended charge of felony battery resulting in serious bodily injury. The other charges, including one of rape, were dropped, and the sentence will be served concurrently with the 80-year one from the Wilson murder. Messel interrupted the woman multiple times in court as she spoke. He said he did not want to hear her “fantasy” unrelated to the battery charge. Judge Marc Kellams pointed at Messel and told him to stop interrupting the woman. “I will have you gagged and bound to your chair if I need to,” he said. The student continued to recount the attack and its effects on her. According to court documents, in the early morning of September 1, 2012, Messel drove the then-law student to a wooded area in Monroe County and attempted sexual contact with her while driving. He then pulled her out of the car by her hair and SEE MESSEL, PAGE 6


Buss signs WNBA training contract From IDS reports

Tyra Buss’ storied career at IU officially ended with the Hoosiers’ victory in the WNIT championship March 31. However, she took the next step of her basketball career Tuesday. After not being selected in the 2018 WNBA Draft on April 12, Buss has signed a training camp contract with the Connecticut Sun. The Sun's head coach is Curt Miller, who originally recruited Buss to come to IU for her college career. However, Miller stepped down as head coach the summer before Buss' freshman year and current coach Teri Moren took over. "We are happy for Tyra and this opportunity to attend a WNBA training camp,” Moren said in an IU athletics press release. “I know she has everything it takes to be successful at the next level and we wish her the best as she begins her professional career.” Buss ended her career in Bloomington at the top or near the top of nearly every IU statistical category. She wound up as the Hoosiers’ all-time leader in career points, assists, steals, free throws made and free throws attempted. She started all 134 games of her IU career and took the program to new heights alongside fellow senior Amanda Cahill. In their sophomore season, they helped lead IU to their first NCAA tournament appearance in 14 years and first NCAA tournament victory since 1983. In her final season, Buss averaged 20.8 points, 4.7 assists, 2.1 steals and 40 minutes per game, while shooting 42 percent from the field and 33 percent from behind the three-point line. Buss also finished her career as a three-time All-Big Ten First Team and Academic All-Big Ten nominee. If Buss gets a spot on the Sun's main roster, she will begin her WNBA career when the 2018 season begins on May 18. Murphy Wheeler and Dylan Wallace

Bloomington firefighters are there when emergency calls, but who can they turn to when they need help? Words by Liz Meuser | @Liz_Meuser

Photos by Deonna Weatherly

Every time the retired Bloomington Fire captain drives past the curve on State Road 46, she thinks of the three teenage girls who died there. Jean Magrane remembers arriving at the scene of the headon collision near Brummetts Creek Road that spring afternoon. She pictures their bodies strewn out on the road — one thrown from the Chevy Cavalier, the other half caught between the pavement and the car’s mangled frame, the third still stuck inside. Twelve years have passed, the roadside crosses have come and gone, but for Magrane, the image remains, tucked away with other memories of runs during her 27 years of fire service. She can recall the faces of dead infants. The peeling skin of a man pulled from a house fire. The body of a man ejected from his car, found sitting upright against a tree. In those moments, spurred by adrenaline and the familiarity of protocol, visions of twisted limbs, human flesh or faces constricted in pain didn’t seem to register with her. She could only think of the job at hand. It was when the run was over that the visions started to haunt. * * * When we have a problem we call the fire department. From defective smoke alarms, kitchen fires, to severe medical emergencies — when we call, firefighters respond. But who do firefighters call for help when the emotional toll of the job becomes too much to handle? Who helps the caretakers take care of themselves? Fire service is a line of work tasked with helping others. It is also one which, despite the increased presence of women, remains predominantly male. Customary ultra-masculine stereotypes of toughness end up factoring into a reluctance to admit to struggling with mental health. “In our profession, we are supposed to help everyone,” Bloomington Fire Chief Jason Moore said. “It’s really hard to admit we need help.” Moore is trying to change that. Scribbled on the whiteboard in his office at the top of his list of things to do is “peer and professional support group.” It was the first thing he wrote down when he took the job two years ago, when, during his first week as chief, the crew responded to a call where a sixmonth-old baby died. In Moore’s eyes, the program would bring together firefighters and medical professionals to help people who might be struggling find ways to cope with stress or grief. Crew members would be trained on how to notice warning signs in their colleagues and, if they feel they need further counseling, how to gently suggest they speak with a mental health specialist partnered with the station. He hopes having a professional system in place will get more men to open up, and in turn keep them from reaching their breaking point. Moore was first introduced to the idea of a support program while working at a station in Charleston, South Carolina. Two months after he started, nine firefighters died while on a call for a warehouse fire in a Sofa Super Store. The deaths of the “Charleston 9” launched a peer support initiative by the station to help employees cope. He himself would come to use the services months later. While responding to a call for an ATV accident, Moore held the hand of 16-year-old boy as he died en route to the hospital. When he returned to the station, three veteran firefighters were waiting outside. One of them was then-active Battalion Chief John Winn Sr. He hugged Moore. He told him he wasn’t there to pry, just to talk if he felt like it. “Don’t go home and let this sit on you,” Winn said. “You’re not alone.” He gave Moore his card and said, “You don’t know you’re going to need this yet.”

* * * On every third day, firefighters at Bloomington headquarters begin a new shift — 24 hours on, 48 hours off — from 7 a.m. until 7 a.m. the next morning. One by one they file in, say hello to Berniece at reception and hang up the protective gear and boots of the person they’re relieving. The engine and ladder truck are inspected and cleaned and test dispatch tones drop at 7:15 a.m. for a city-wide radio check. For 24 hours their lives are stop and go. A dispatch call can drop at any moment, and when it does, it interrupts daily routines. One goes and deals with the issue and comes back: reheating a meal, repeating an exercise set or picking up a conversation, all exactly where they left off. The fire station is their home base. It’s where Friday nights are pizza night and Sunday mornings mean biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Where the men spend evenings relaxed in recliner chairs, watching TV or catching up on sleep. Some

call home to say goodnight to their kids. Others meet downstairs in the training room, amidst CPR dummies, for nightly Bible study. Many of the men spend more time at the station in a given week than they do with their wives and children. As firefighter Gabe Morran says, the crew isn’t just working together, it's living together. It becomes family. Firefighters field any 911 call dispatched to the station, from structure fires to shortness of breath. Emergency response squadrons are always accompanied by law enforcement, but sometimes firefighters arrive on scene first. What awaits them can be a moment of either life or death. Some overdose victims still have the needle in their arm, and some still wear hospital tags from their most recent ER visit. That’s why, before leaving for any run, Sgt. Brandon Hudson tells his crew: “watch for needles.” God forbid someone gets stuck. With each case, the men usually never find out what happens to the patient after they’ve been loaded into

the ambulance. Because of HIPAA confidentiality laws, they can’t simply call up ambulance services and ask if they made it. Rarely do individuals come back to the station and thank them for saving their life. Instead, some overdose victims wake up angry the responder took away their high. When Hudson resuscitates overdose victims, particularly young adults, he tells them: “You were about to meet your maker.” But the men didn’t take the job for money or glory, or for someone to call them their hero. They took an oath to help and serve. The majority of them work second jobs on their days off from duty at the station. As Hudson said, sometimes you don’t want to know what happened. You have to know you did the best that you could and go on with your day to be ready for the next call. But other times, after hearing people’s cries for help, it’s hard not to sympathize with their pain. Hudson’s fellow sergeant and former rig member Matt

Battalion Chief Roger Kerr checks his email at his desk at the Bloomington Fire Department Headquarters. Kerr said many firefighters have a hard time asking for help. "I'm supposed to be the one you call," he said.



Patterson agreed. “I know I gave my best, I gave 100 percent, and I don’t have the ultimate control," he said. "Somebody else does. That's all I can do.” Granted, some cases are harder than others. “You can close your eyes and see faces,” Patterson said. “And those won’t ever go away.” As part of the hiring process, new recruits take a psychiatric exam in adherence to Indiana state requirements to be eligible for their pension, and all firefighters receive initial training. The training covers the basics of rescue awareness and EMT preparation. It identifies stressful situations they might find themselves in. But what it doesn’t prepare for are the emotions those runs can conjure up. After 16 years in the business, Hudson can tell if a run didn’t go well. He doesn’t have to ask, the shellshocked faces of the returning company are enough. He makes a point to check in with new recruits, often using humor to lighten the mood or simply asking if they want to talk about what they just saw. “These calls start weighing on people," Moore said. "If you don’t have some kind of way to express it or get it off your chest, then it builds up.” The goal is to help keep people from reaching that brink, like when a former captain, after 16 years of service at headquarters, requested a transfer. He’d finally had enough. “Everyone has their breaking point, where they just say, ‘I’m done. I don’t want to see anymore’.” * * * For the men and women

in emergency services, witnessing death can be a daily occurrence. “We see death all the time, we grow accustomed to it,” Hudson said. “It would be nice if everyone died peacefully in their sleep, in bed, eyes closed.” But death doesn’t always happen that way. The men have seen people in all kinds of states when they die, including where they died at home alone where household pets have begun to pick at the corpse. In moments like this, sometimes the only thing one can do is shake their head and think, “Man, what a way to go.” Magrane said it’s an eerie feeling to be in a room during that time. She said there were times when she was giving CPR that she could sense when someone had died, as if they were hovering. “You have to respect what you are doing to this body,” she said. Over time, tough calls and repeat dispatches for relapses can start to take a toll. “It callouses you,” Patterson said. Firefighter Dan Emerick, who served as a police officer and in ambulance services before working in fire service, said after a while, one’s brain gets overloaded with details from past runs. And there are some things that one can never really get rid of, resulting in some restless nights and feelings of déjà vu. Years ago, Emerick responded to a call about an accident in a quarry. As the ambulance was waved back to the scene he saw a dead man pinned between two large boulders, his body puffy and skin blue. The man had been helping guide a forklift stacking stones when one fell — cutting him in half. As Emerick and his team were lifting the body off the ground and placing it into

body bags, the victim’s son arrived from the nearby quarry. Upon seeing his father’s body, the man buckled to his knees. Seeing the body for himself was bad enough, but watching the son’s reaction bothered Emerick more than anything. Stressful runs can generate different reactions for each individual on the crew. Most find release in the gym, some choose to sit in silence, others might just shut the door to the TV room and yell. Runs with little children are especially difficult — especially for those who have children. “The way you feel about certain calls changes with your life,” Morran said. All of the men agreed, it’s best not to take it home. Most firefighters said they’d rather not talk about what they’ve experienced with their spouses. They don’t want to burden them.

“I don’t want to tell you about the worst thing I’ve ever seen because then I have to remember it. I’ve suppressed that. That’s my monster in the closet. I don’t ever want to deal with it again.” Jason Moore, Bloomington Fire Chief

“I don’t want to tell you about the worst thing I’ve ever seen because then I have to remember it,” Moore said. “I’ve suppressed that. That’s my monster in the closet. I don’t ever want to deal with it again.”

On top of that, firefighters and first responders don’t want to appear vulnerable — an attitude Moore credits to the industry stereotype of needing to be the tough guy. This attitude suggests if you can’t stomach the tolls of the job, you shouldn’t be in this career field. Magrane, who became the first female firefighter in Bloomington in 1987, says the reluctance to show emotion is tied to the male atmosphere of the profession. “As a woman, I felt very much that I had a green light to show compassion, to show my feelings,” Magrane said. “I never felt like some of those guys who really held back a lot of their emotions. I felt free to just express mine and cry if I wanted.” Two days after 9/11, Magrane walked into the station and said she could feel the men’s despair. Nobody seemed to be doing anything to talk about how they were feeling, so she initiated it. She had everyone gather around the kitchen table and hold hands. They said a prayer. Afterwards, two crew members came up and thanked her. “I just felt that we had to talk about our feelings,” she said. Battalion Chief Roger Kerr, who’s been working in the field for 30 years, said while there’s been some progress in getting people to talk about mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder thanks to awareness around military veterans and social media, there is still a stigma of being called out as having a problem. “Most firefighters on the surface think, ‘It’s not going to bother me,’ and then there’s some run or something happens that sticks — that triggers something — and sticks with you longer than you think it should,” he said. And unlike a military

combat-type PTSD, which might be caused by a sudden, all-at-once type of experience, Kerr said PTSD for firefighters is more of a slow drip — a combination of many experiences spread out over several years that keep adding up until the bucket is full. Some years back Kerr and Hudson conducted an interview project with retirees with the intention of hearing a funny story here or there about their time in the service. Instead, many of the men broke down while retelling stories about runs. One man regretted not being able to say goodbye to a dying relative because he was on shift. Kerr doesn’t think there was one interview where someone didn’t cry. For Hudson, it looked as if they had been carrying ghosts, and that at some point, the cork came out. * * * In terms of the peer support program, Kerr said the trick is knowing when is the right time to intervene and try to help. As a battalion chief, he has to walk a fine line between being there for someone and giving them space until the situation deescalates. “Trying to find a way to break those barriers down and open up that dialogue is almost as tough as trying to figure out when to use it,” he said. “A lot of times the humor side of it gets people talking and headed down a road to where they’re more willing to open up.” As Moore attests, firefighters helping firefighters seems to be the best received, as they tend to communicate more when it’s to someone they feel knows where they’re coming from. If he were simply to bring in a doctor, he’d have a

quiet room. The crew members look out for each other. Over time they get to know their colleagues’ family histories and, with it, their personal triggers, like in the case of one firefighter who lost his son in a car accident. His crew kept him from responding to the call and later delivered the news instead of him hearing it from the coroner. Humor can also be healing. In addition to checking in with each other, the men at headquarters take part in their fair share of familial teasing. Members of the crew lob light-hearted jabs at each other’s expense and engage in harmless pranks like putting hot sauce in someone’s Twinkie or hiding their sweatshirt in the freezer. For firefighter Morran, it all comes down to comfort. “You want to work around people you can be comfortable with,” he said. “We try to make it as much a home as possible.” Firefighter Vick Vollrath bakes on his days off and brings in treats to the station. Along with his staple of chocolate chip cookies and homemade cinnamon rolls, Vollrath makes a point to bake something for everybody’s birthday since they can’t always celebrate with their family at home. “I try to take good care of these people," he said. "Because they take care of me.” As Emerick would always say to new ambulance recruits, sometimes it just comes down to making the situation a little better because sometimes you can’t fix the whole problem. Each day is a new day. “Every day you have an opportunity to help,” he said. “And if you don’t have hope, you don’t have anything.”

How IU is working toward Zero Waste dining halls By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot


Media School Professor Barbara Cherry speaks during the Bloomington Faculty Council meeting April 3. The BFC last met April 17, when outgoing president Alex Tanford handed over the symbolic Tiara of Power and Asterisk of Reality to president-elect Moira Marsh, a subject librarian.

BFC highlights from this academic year By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

The Bloomington Faculty Council covered a lot of ground this semester, including voting to create a third lecturer rank, passing proposals to amend the council’s constitution and beginning to review IU’s general education requirements. The BFC last met April 17, when outgoing president Alex Tanford handed over the symbolic Tiara of Power and Asterisk of Reality to president-elect Moira Marsh, a subject librarian. Marsh said she wants to focus on making shared governance of the University between faculty and administrators work, increasing the role of non-tenuretrack faculty on the council and continuing to make the council more efficient. “Bloomington campus is a big ship, and it doesn’t turn around on a dime, so BFC is a pretty unwieldy ship too sometimes,” Marsh said. “But I think we’re getting a lot more streamlined and a lot more effective.” Here are some highlights from this year’s BFC. Creation of the third lecturer rank: Teaching Professor A motion for a third lecturer rank was approved at the March 27 meeting. The new rank was named Teaching Professor at the April 17 meeting, making the progression of lecturer ranks Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Teaching Professor. The discussion of creating a third rank, especially including the word professor in the title, was tense. At one meeting, a council member read the Oxford

English Dictionary definition of the word professor for North America: “Any teacher at a university.” At another meeting, Senior Lecturer J. Duncan said a council member was using the language of slavery to describe non-tenure-track faculty. Marsh said it is one of her goals to continue increasing the role of non-tenure-track faculty on the council by building on the proposals passed this year and creating more that will lead to action in the form of elections. “They’re an increasing part of the faculty,” Marsh said. “They do important work. The University couldn’t run without them, so they need to be full partners.” Amendments to the BFC constitution Fourteen amendments to the BFC’s constitution were proposed, and 11 of the amendments were voted on and approved. The last three were not voted on due to time, but will be addressed when the council meets again in fall 2018. Many of the proposed amendments make the language of the constitution more generic so that changes do not need to be made as frequently, or so that the constitution can be in line with how the council actually operates. For example, one section proposed to be amended says the Bloomington provost will report on the state of the campus in the fall, while Provost Lauren Robel gave her state of the campus speech in the spring this year. The amendment would change the section to say the provost will report on the state of the campus at

least once a year, not specifying when. Other proposals came from the Non-Tenure-Track Task Force, focusing on increasing the representation of non-tenure-track faculty on the BFC. Marsh said she thinks it has been 10 years since the constitution has been amended. Before the amendments are made to the constitution, they need to be voted on and approved with a majority vote from the full faculty. General Education requirements At the March 20 meeting, the BFC discussed an anonymous flier titled “The Black Paper,” which was posted outside the BFC offices and asked why it has taken so long for the BFC to implement a general education course for Diversity in the U.S. in every school at IU. Outgoing president Alex Tanford said at the end of the last academic year’s BFC meetings, council members assumed the issue would be resolved this year. The resolution was slowed down because it became clear that a broader look at general education policy itself was needed. “It’s out of date, it’s out of step with what other universities are doing,” Tanford said. “And, it was so ill-defined that we didn’t even quite know what it would do.” Marsh said general education policy would be a major focus next year. “We’re just hearing from many quarters that it’s not working the way we want it, so it’s time to have a look and see what’s broken,” Marsh said.

It was so warm, the 15-foot mound of waste steamed in the cool morning air like a fresh pile of dog poop. Peeking out of the mound and scattered around it are familiar reminders of campus life — an orange spoon from Bloomingberry, several compostable Coca-Cola cups and the filmy liner that cradles every order from the Stone Grill. Every week, IU brings 10,000 pounds of compostable waste to Green Earth, a compost yard 10 miles from the Sample Gates on the west side of Bloomington. All of the waste comes from Residential Programs and Services, IU Athletics and the Indiana Memorial Union. Two RPS dining halls contributing to the compost pile, Goodbody Eatery and the Restaurants at Woodlands, are Zero Waste facilities. Rahul Shrivastav, director of dining services, said the halls both defer 96 percent of the waste they produce from landfills. Shrivastav said he plans to continue converting IU’s dining halls to Zero Waste. In fall 2018, Wright Dining Hall and the Bookmarket Eatery in Herman B Wells Library will be converted as well. What is Zero Waste? IU’s move toward composting waste started with a compostable Coke cup. Shrivastav said when he began working at IU in July 2017, the University was doing a lot of recycling. But he knew Coca-Cola offered a compostable cup IU wasn’t using. Shrivastav switched to the compostable Coke cup, and from there, he expanded to compostable silverware, bowls and trays. When Goodbody opened last fall, Shrivastav was able to work on building a Zero Waste facility from the start. Zero Waste does not mean absolutely zero waste is being created. The Environmental Protection Agency does not regulate it. At IU,

Zero Waste means deferring 96 percent of waste from landfills. “There is always going to be waste that is going to go to trash,” Shrivastav said. It’s part philosophy, part lifestyle. Shrivastav described Zero Waste in terms of “closing the loop.” Once food is properly composted, which takes between three and six months, it can be used as soil. That soil can go back into the earth to plant more food, closing the loop. Recycling, where materials have to be turned into entirely new products, takes more time, Shrivastav said. Woodlands has no easily accessible trash cans. Instead, students put their trash on a multi-level conveyor that whisks leftovers to a sorting area. This may help eliminate incorrect sorting by students. At Goodbody, there’s no conveyor belt, but trash cans are labeled for landfill, compost and recycling. Almost everything at the dining hall is compostable or recyclable. “Post-consumer sorting is where it gets complicated,” Shrivastav said. “If you’re in a hurry, and if your cup is compostable and the lid is recyclable, you’re not going to take the time to figure out where they go.” Josh Emerick, general manager of Goodbody and Bookmarket eateries, said the idea is to take the choice of which bin to put leftovers in out of the hands of customers by making nearly everything compostable. Follow the food The last bite of your Bedrock Burger from the Stone Grill or last sip of Cherry Berry smoothie from Bloomingberry isn’t done once it makes its way around the conveyor in Woodlands. Your leftovers just might meet Linda Castledine, who has worked at IU as a custodian since 2016 and has worked in dishwashing for 13 years. As trays, boxes, cups, bowls, silverware, napkins

and other unwanted bits of trash swung their way around the conveyor, Castledine sorts between compost and recycling. She doesn’t have a bin for landfill trash — at Woodlands, almost everything that comes around is either compostable or recyclable. Even the trash bags are compostable. To save room in the bags, Castledine dumps food waste from trays and then stacks the trays together. She does the same with cups, bowls and other stackable items. From there, the bags are taken down a hallway, through the kitchen, past the Stone Grill and behind Caliente to the loading dock. Compactors in the loading dock compress recyclables and other materials so they take up less space in the dumpster. JB’s Salvage, a Bloomington scrap metal recycling company contracted by the University, takes the compost to Green Earth, while landfill and recyclables are picked up by a mixture of IU campus trucks and Republic Services. For the landfill waste, that means a 63-mile drive to Terre Haute, Indiana, where it’s dumped. IU started bringing its compost to Green Earth in March 2017, said Steve Akers, associate director of environmental operations in RPS. Composting is more expensive than putting everything in a landfill, Akers said. “But within that cost is the cost of air quality and methane,” Akers said. “We’re keeping it in Monroe County, we’re shredding it and creating soil that can be used in a much more efficient and more environmentally friendly way.” About once a week, around 6 a.m., a truckload of food waste from JB’s Salvage arrives at Green Earth for Kevin Huntley, who runs the compost yard. That truckload of waste is put into a bright red shredder called the Beast. Along the side of the shredder is a paint job of an anthropomorphic raccoon flexing his bicep. When the compost is dry enough, Huntley uses a yellow Komatsu excavator to create rows of compost to spread it out. Here, at the top of a hill nearly surrounded by forest, the piles of compost smell fresh and rotting all at once. In these mounds, the life and death of our food is simultaneous. That last bite of flatbread pizza you couldn’t muster the will to eat last week is given another chance. A shredder comes to life, the bags of waste go into its teeth and life goes on.

A Bloomington man was arrested Tuesday in connection to a 2014 rape, according to police. A 22-year-old woman reported the rape, which allegedly happened April 11 or 12, 2014, to police on April 10, 2018. She was a senior in high school at the time of the incident. She went to the police station with two of her friends to make a report. The woman told officers she blacked out at a party in the 1300 block of North Lincoln Street in 2014 and woke up at her friend’s house the next morning. When she woke up, her

friends — the women who accompanied her to the station — told her she’d been raped the night before. The friends told the 22-year-old they saw a man having sex with her as she lay outside the party house. They reported that the man then left the party, and they collected their friend and helped her home. Police said the woman used Facebook after the alleged rape and asked around to find out who the man was. They determined it was Alexander Butcher, who was 22 at the time. The friends told officers they encouraged the woman to report the rape to police in 2014, but she did not. No rape

Sexual assault reported over weekend From IDS reports

A 25-year-old woman told police Tuesday she believes she might have been sexually assaulted over the weekend. She reported blacking out at some point over the weekend and waking up in jail Sunday. She was arrested for resisting law enforcement. When she was released

from jail, she went to IU Health Bloomington Hospital where a rape kit was collected. She told officers she did not remember most of the night and felt she was possibly sexually assaulted when she was blacked out. She did not indicate why. The woman was visiting a friend Saturday when she became belligerently drunk and refused to leave the

apartment, according to officers. Men who were in the apartment at the time called the police when she passed out on the kitchen floor. Officers said she fought with them when they tried to help her. She kicked, spit, refused to stand and bit one officer on the hand. Caroline Anders

Supreme Court decision promotes misuse of power A recent ruling by the Supreme Court earlier this month should have opponents of police brutality worried. The Supreme Court overturned a decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that Amy Hughes, an Arizona woman who was shot and severely injured by a police officer in 2010, can sue the officer. The Supreme Court held that the officer is protected from Hughes’ lawsuit by “qualified immunity,” which says government officials can only be sued for violating a plaintiff ’s statutory or constitutional right when that right is clearly established and would be understood by any reasonable public official.

Essentially, the Supreme Court says Officer Andrew Kisela either did not violate Amy Hughes’ Fourth Amendment rights by using excessive force or cannot be expected to have known he was doing so. That claim is not supported by the facts of the case, as was eloquently demonstrated in a dissenting opinion by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On the date of the incident, Tucson police received a 911 call about a woman, Amy Hughes, behaving erratically and chopping away at a tree with a kitchen knife. Three officers, including Kisela, responded to the house of Hughes and her roommate

Sharon Chadwick. Hughes emerged from the house and began a conversation with Chadwick during which she was holding the kitchen knife down at her side. Hughes and Chadwick were separated from the officers by a chain-link fence. Chadwick later testified Hughes “never acted in a threatening manner.” Hughes remained six feet away from Chadwick throughout the encounter. Officers commanded Hughes to drop the knife, although evidence suggests Hughes may not have heard or registered those commands. When she continued holding the knife, Kisela, and only Kisela, decided to re-

sort to potentially lethal force by shooting at Hughes four times. Hughes dropped to the ground and asked, “Why’d you shoot me?” Less than one minute transpired between the time when the officers saw Chadwick and the time when Kisela fired shots. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent states that she believes Hughes committed no serious crime, Hughes never threatened the officers, and neither of the other officers at the scene felt the need to resort to potentially deadly force at the time. The problem with the majority’s ruling is that it prevents police officers from being held accountable for

injuring and killing civilians when it is totally unnecessary to do so. Both prongs of the majority’s argument are faulty. It is not only manifestly clear that Kisela violated Hughes’ rights by shooting her when neither the officers nor Chadwick were in serious danger. It is also clear that Kisela should be expected to have known he was doing so. Police officers are all too often treated as infallible. Judges and juries give them latitude to use deadly force anytime they feel threatened, regardless of whether they had any objective reason to feel that way. This decision further institutionalizes the leniency into American law.

Police have a dangerous job, but we cannot take their subjective emotional reactions to a situation as justification for actions so drastic as ending someone’s life or severely injuring someone. This is especially concerning in light of how bias affects the use of force by police. The Washington Post’s police shooting database shows black people and people with mental illness are more likely than others to be shot by police. The Supreme Court is stretching out this notion of qualified immunity in police officers’ favor. Not expecting police to know citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights is keeping our expectations far too low.



Barbara Bush did little to advance feminism

Schools need to do more to protect students from gun violence

EMMA GETZ is a sophomore in English and history.

The recent death of former first lady Barbara Bush has brought many in the nation both to mourn and honor her legacy, but many narratives, while well-intentioned, are slightly inaccurate in that they celebrate Bush as being a feminist icon. It is time to analyze the difference between a woman in a powerful position and a feminist, because the two do not necessarily go hand in hand. The first undeniable fact about Bush is that she was a Republican and supported many Republican campaigns, namely Reagan and her husband, former President George H.W. Bush. It is inefficient and unnecessary to divide feminism by party lines, but while Republican feminists can and do exist, the legislative corpus of the Republican body is not well known for pro-women legislation. This is especially true for politicians like Reagan, whose administration was vehemently pro-life. There is no one true definition of feminism with a concrete list of causes telling women what they can and cannot support as far as policy, but perhaps the best

place to start is with policy that supports the freedom and autonomy of women to do what they choose with their bodies. While there are feminists who identify as pro-life, this belief goes against my views of feminism. My definition of feminism also goes beyond supporting women, but supporting all marginalized people, as all forms of activism are connected in some way. There is no point in being a feminist if one does not support women of color or women in the LGBT community, and that easily extends to supporting men of color and men in the LGBT community, as well as those nonconforming. A true feminist should ideally fight for the rights of every marginalized person. This is one aspect of feminism that gets very confusing when it comes to Bush, as it brings conflicting narratives to the forefront. It brings into question what standards we must uphold for women of power and privilege. Bush was one of Reagan’s biggest supporters, evoking a form of complicity in his racist crusade against drugs and inability to act against the AIDS crisis, causing the deaths of millions of people, namely

those in the LGBT community. At the same time, Bush played a role in addressing the stigma against AIDS by visiting patients in hospitals, effectively working to humanize them in an era that was so desperate to demonize them. However, in Bush’s 1994 memoir, in a response to Anita Hill’s sexual harassment claims against Justice Clarence Thomas, Bush wrote, “It is setting a picture that anyone can testify if he or she wants and cause doubts.” It is ineffective to take a person and decide if they are wholly good or bad. People are much more complex than that. There are many positive aspects of Bush’s legacy which deserve celebration in their own right, and some of her ideas can still have a positive influence. In 1990, she spoke at a graduation ceremony at Wellesley College and said something I particularly like: “Human connections — with spouses, with children, with friends — are the most important investments you’ll ever make.” She then said, “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will re-

gret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend or a parent.” At the same time, the worth of your human connections are questionable when you do not fight for the humans that are oppressed. As a whole, it is impossible to label Bush as a feminist icon because of her undeniable complicity in supporting legislation, such as the reinstatement of the Mexico City policy, that harms those around the world who were far more oppressed than her, but her actions do not allow for her complete vilification, either. George H.W. Bush had played an integral role in securing funding for Planned Parenthood and backing Title X family planning legislation as a senator prior to his presidency. The pro-life polarization of the Republican party, as well as that of the subsequent generations of Bushes, is indicative of one of the unfortunate failure of the modern Republican party to embrace feminist social and economic policies. Feminism and the legacies of women in power must be further analyzed and discussed in the public light, and feminism is not powerful until it empowers every oppressed person.

What is the weight of 17 bodies, 17 lives cut short and 17 children gone from the world, to which no action could bring them back? How heavy does this burden hang in our hearts as a country that has done so little to end this repetition, with representatives and other elected officials who have yet to take action, who seem blind and deaf to the cries and demonstrations that have arisen from this heavy burden? Those who are marching in Washington and in their state houses feel that weight, and the fear that tomorrow there could be 17 more. It’s been two months since the Parkland shooting, and there is yet to be any large-scale change to address the problem of mass shootings in the United States. While some communities and states have taken action, at the federal level the response has been meek. The Trump administration has made moves to ban bump stocks, but this alone will do little to curb the gun violence present in this country. Assault rifles remain on the market, and gun shows remain a way to circumvent

background checks, weakening the security of keeping weapons out of the hands of unsafe individuals. Policies which address these problems would go much further to mitigate this crisis.

“How heavy does this burden hang in our hearts as a country that has done so little?” As a student myself, it has become increasingly troubling that so little is being done to protect citizens and students across the nation. School shootings seem to be occurring with everincreasing frequency, and with time it is becoming difficult to put the possibility of such a tragedy striking my school at any given time out of mind. I feel it is long past time for our legislators to pass laws which will protect the citizens of the U.S. Sincerely, Nikolas Maden Nikolas is a student at IU.


The perspective of a right-winged gay on being a right-winged gay ETHAN SMITH is a sophomore in journalism.

I am in a weird spot where I often get criticism from both sides of many debates. I get called a bigot in one conversation and a fag in another. I’ve had hot soup thrown through my open car window along with the slurs. My ideological beliefs tend to be conservative — I hope I have made that clear throughout my columns. Likewise, it typically does not take more than a minute or two of a conversation to assume my sexuality. Notice I wrote “likewise” instead of “however.” I like to think of these two attri-

butes of my life — maybe because they are two of the largest attributes that form whom I am — as simply coexistent, yet independent characteristics of my identity. Take for instance the 2017 Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, in which a cake shop owner refused to bake a cake for a same-sex couple on the grounds of it violating his religious beliefs. I may receive hatred and backlash from my fellow members of the LGBT community, but I have some sort of ethical obligation to support a man’s legitimate religious beliefs over a cou-

ple’s desire to buy a cake from that shop.

“I like to think of these two attributes of my life — maybe because they are two of the largest attributes that form whom I am — as simply coexistent, yet independent characteristics of my identity.” At the same time, however, I recognize the persisting inequality due to homophobia, and I often see it firsthand. Despite de-

cades of progress, no federal law exists which explicitly prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in areas such as employment. One in four LGBT employees experience employment discrimination, and 8 percent of LGBT employees reported discrimination negatively affecting their work environments. I want my sexuality to be a footnote in my political life. I desire to spend my life advocating for the growth of this nation and preservation of liberty without making it about myself in any way. My sexuality does not underscore my decisions, ideas or value. It is just another part of my personal

identity, completely separated from my political ideology. There is nothing oxymoronic about being a gay conservative. Just the same, our ethnicities, races and gender identifications should not make political statements on our behalf. Sure, sometimes they can help us see the failures of our legal system at a personal level, but they ought not be a sole contributor in any decision-making. I think we should move past the days where identities define us. I simply want to make note that these immutable characteristics have nothing to do with values.

Don’t get me wrong — I am not disgraced by my identity at all. Some blatantly ignorant assumptions come with saying that gay Republicans do not want to speak of their sexuality, because they are ashamed of it. That is not me. I want to yell it from the rooftops just as much as I want to yell about the failures of Obamacare. We need to recognize — as any community of people — that our personal characteristics such as sexual orientation do not automatically place us into any given political affiliation. But rather, it is our thoughtful values and ideas that should construct our agendas.

Martin Shedd, a visiting professor of classical studies, ventured to Luddy Hall specifically to view the sculpture after he read about it in a recent report. “It’s intriguing, that’s for sure,” Shedd said. After spending a few minutes studying Amatria from multiple angles, Shedd said its various components made it hard for him to form a single impression of its aesthetic. “It’s kind of like the White Witch of Narnia majored in electrical engineering,” Shedd said.

Because of its public charm, Börner said she expects Amatria to be as iconic to Luddy Hall as the Sample Gates are to IU. “Amatria is a physical manifestation of ISE’s mission to create the next generation of ‘renaissance engineers,’ fluent in art, science and technology,” Börner said in an April 24 email. Luddy Hall offers public tours of Amatria every few weeks. While the artwork was officially revealed April 11, during the weeklong LuddyFest leading up to the building’s dedication ceremony April 13, Fridman said it will grow and evolve as people develop programming for it. “The best is yet to come,” Fridman said.

The woman was able to push him away before he then punched her in the face. Messel left the scene, taking her purse, shoes, phone, credit card and driver's permit with him, according to the document. The student got help from residents at the nearest house who called police, and she was taken to the hospital for a sexual assault examination. DNA from the attacker was found under her fingernails. The woman said in court

Over two and a half years later, Wilson was found dead April 24, 2015 — three years to the day before Messel’s Tuesday court appearance. In August 2016, Messel was found guilty for the murder of Wilson. The woman from the 2012 attack read testimony

from the case and found it “eerily similar” to her own, according to court documents. The DNA found under her fingernails — which was not enough to test in the FBI’s program in 2012 — was tested against Messel’s DNA on file and matched. Robin Wilson, Hannah Wilson’s mother, sat in the courtroom Tuesday. She said she had known about the case since the DNA report and couldn’t believe the sentencing was on the three-year anniversary of Hannah’s death. “That may have all been directed by Hannah,” she told the Indiana Daily Student after the hearing. “She may have wanted it this way.” Robin said she went to the sentencing because she wanted to hear Messel ad-

mit guilt to something and to hear that Hannah’s death wasn’t in vain. After the sentencing, Robin and the woman hugged. Wilson said the pair live close to one another and planned to get together. “The best way to honor Hannah’s memory on the anniversary of her death,” Robin said, “was what transpired in that courtroom.” Robin noted even though Messel seemed to struggle in admitting to the battery charge, she said it was good for her to hear him own something. At the beginning of his appearance, when Kellams asked if he understood the charges he was facing, Messel denied some. “I understand the charge,” he said. “I understand it’s not true.”

Jamming to 2008 music Indiana Daily Student News Bloomington, IN United States

2008 bangers Just a decade ago, 2008 was a gold mine for music that is still beloved in 2018. From Beyoncé to Britney Spears, these bangers are still classics.


Then-tween sensations the Jonas Brothers, from left, Joe, 18, Kevin, 20, and Nick, 15, perform Feb. 20, 2008, at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The Jonas Brothers were one of 2008’s biggest musical acts.


P!nk I just bought the new P!nk album on iTunes after letting Shazam hear "So What." I can add you on the Facebook application, if you have one.

Star Wars So this kid summed the first “Star Wars” up into 90 seconds. Don’t know why I wasted that other 120-and-a-half minutes.

Hannah Reed is a junior in journalism.

The year 2008 gave the world gifted music, shutter shades and boho headbands. We can only hope the fashion trends don’t make their way back into our lives, but every time I attend a party, I hope a bop from 2008 makes an appearance. 2008 was a special time for music. The Jonas Brothers released what I see as their best album, “A Little Bit Longer," giving us those classic hits such as “Burnin’ Up" and “Lovebug." The year came with a surplus of Disney bops. As a pre-teen, I was there for every single one of them. Vanessa Hudgens' sophomore album “Identified” – yes, she sang outside of High School Musical and yes, it was incredible – was released in 2008, gifting us with the absolute banger that is “Sneakernight.” Speaking of High School Musical, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” was released in October. While this

wasn’t the best film or the best soundtrack, we were still able to drool over the beautiful cast from the movie while singing the songs with friends. Disney was not the only thing in its prime in 2008. Season 7 of American Idol may have ended in May, but runner-up David Archuleta released "Crush," a song I still get down to 10 years later and one of the biggest bops of 2008. The winner of the season, David Cook, gave us some heartfelt songs on his debut, such as “The Time of My Life” and “Light On” before fading into the inevitable nothingness that came with winning American Idol unless you were Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. Speaking of blondes who are amazing at what they do, we might as well touch on the beauty that is Lady Gaga’s debut album, “The Fame.” The entire album was a gift that the world didn’t deserve, but one Gaga knew we needed. We were given “Just Dance,”

“Starstuck” and “Paparazzi” — all songs that would be blessings to hear at parties or bars in 2018. Another icon that was absolutely murdering the game in 2008 was Rihanna with “Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded.” Rihanna is still an icon, and she has been releasing hits since she began singing. While all her newer songs are amazing, something about the thought of “Disturbia” or “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z playing at a party gets me more excited than hearing anything else by her. Alongside Rihanna and Lady Gaga, the queen of all queens, Beyoncé, released “I AM … SASHA FIERCE,” awarding the world for doing nothing with “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” “Video Phone” and “Halo.” I mean, seriously. What did we do to deserve this? I was only 12 when the album was released, and Queen Bey had me pretending I was a full-grown woman. Beyoncé was not the only artist making me feel

like I was grown. Flo Rida did too. He released “In The Ayer” featuring and “Low” featuring T-Pain, and I vividly remember showing my parents “Low” to ask if I could buy the song on iTunes. Needless to say, they told 11-year-old me absolutely not, but 21-year-old me queues it up on the aux at parties quite frequently. The two songs are endless classics, and they elevate the energy at any party. I highly recommend playing either one of them at your next gathering when things begin to die out. I’m not sure if all the music in 2008 is brilliant, or if it just brings me a sense of fondness due to nostalgia, but if I were to write about all the hits from 10 years ago, I would be sitting in front of my computer for days. I recommend getting out your old first-generation iPod and seeing what bops it contains, because maybe it’ll have some songs you can add to a party playlist in 2018.

Kung Fu Panda 2008 in Myspace posts “Everybody was kung-fu fighting. Those kicks were fast as lightning. In fact it was a little bit frightening. But they fought with expert timing.”

A decade ago, 2008 was a whirlwind year of major cultural moments, emerging celebrity icons and burgeoning internet madness. This nostalgic rundown, modeled off of Myspace posts, will have you saying, "That was so 2008."

Jeff Lynne, center, performs with Electric Light Orchestra and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by Thomas Wilkins, background center, Sept. 9, 2016, at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California.

Turning up the springtime tunes Hannah Reed is a junior in journalism.

Spring is a beautiful time. Winter coats are shed and smiles are plastered on everyone’s faces up until the next snowstorm in April hits. Listening to the right music as the seasons change is key to making the most out of the warm weather. The sun feels hotter if something upbeat is pumping through your headphones. You’re more likely to be in a smile-at-astranger mood listening to “Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Lights Orchestra than you

are listening to “Mad World” by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews. While it’s not scientifically proven, I think we can all agree that it’s pretty true. As the seasons change and the flowers bloom, so do we. We shed the dry skin that accompanies winter and become hydrated, glowing people enjoying the sunshine in shorts, even when it’s only 60 degrees. It only feels right to shed the Bon Iver we’ve been listening to all winter and latch onto something new. So to help out with the process, I have a couple of artists and

songs perfect for the warm weather. I would recommend starting with “Mr. Blue Sky” by the English rock band Electric Lights Orchestra. I mentioned it earlier, but as soon as the sun comes out, this is a great one to get spirits up as high as possible. What’s better than walking to class and hearing jumpy beats and the lyrics “It’s a beautiful new day” coming through those Apple earbuds you bought in a sad, winter stupor? I’ve written about both of these artists before, but if you’re looking for an upbeat

indie artist or an exciting new rap group for the new season, Rex Orange County or BROCKHAMPTON are great choices. I recommend starting with “Sunflower” by Rex Orange County and “HOTTIE” by BROCKHAMPTON for optimal happiness. If you enjoy Rex Orange County, self-produced singer and songwriter Gus Dapperton is a great option for you, too. Another great indie option for the weather change is indie singer, songwriter and musician Declan McKenna. McKenna’s energetic “Brazil” and electric “Why

Music for walking to class is important, but music for driving with the windows down as the weather gets warmer is just as important. Plug your phone into the aux cord, roll your windows down, search “It’s Not My Fault, I’m Happy,” by Passion Pit and find the nearest highway. There’s an air of freedom that surrounds the summer, particularly the beginning right after classes end, and Passion Pit is the perfect artist to ring in that independence with – classes are over, and it’s not your fault you’re happy about it!

Do You Feel So Down” are great choices to accompany you on a sunshine-filled walk to class. There are some classics that are good for all actions and instances under the sun and cannot be ignored during the summer season. These classics include “Modern Love” and “Let’s Dance” by David Bowie, or “Good Times Bad Times” by Led Zeppelin. The songs are great to turn the radio up and drive to, or they make a great soundtrack as you drink your coffee and sit on the porch to watch the traffic.

Vonnegut festival hits Bloomington From IDS reports

Everything will be beautiful and nothing will hurt when the Arts & Humanities Council presents Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence from May 10 to 12. The three-day conference and festival will honor the life and work of author Kurt

Vonnegut with film screenings, music and more. “Granfalloon” is a term from Vonnegut’s 1963 novel “Cat’s Cradle.” “Granfalloon (n): a group of people who come together through an affected common identity or shared purpose,” according to the

event page on the Arts & Humanities Council website. As part of the festival, Grammy Award winning artist Father John Misty will perform May 11 at Upland Brewing Company. Culture Shock 2017 headliner Noname and the rock band Oh Sees are also scheduled to perform as part of the festival’s “Clubfest” on

May 12. Each day of the festival, the Lilly Library will present pieces from its Vonnegut collection, including original manuscripts of the author’s work. Cardinal Stage Company will present a staged reading of the musical adaptation of Vonnegut's novel “God Bless

inspired parts of his famed 1969 novel “Slaughterhouse Five.” The Arts & Humanities Council has an online map of places related to Vonnegut's life and influence throughout Indiana, including Bloomington and Indianapolis.

You, Mr. Rosewater” on May 11 and 12 at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center. Vonnegut was born in 1922 in Indianapolis. His work is known for its absurdity, satire, dark humor and science fiction. His experience in the Nazi firebombing of Dresden, Germany, during World War II

By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

As "Sweet Home Alabama" begins to play through the speakers, senior outfielder Rebecca Blitz steps up to the plate. Just like she has for most of the past four seasons, she’s the leadoff. Blitz stands in the bottom-right corner of the batter’s box, her feet barely staying on the white chalk lines, just far enough back to give her a running start. The pitcher doesn’t know what she’s about to do — slap hit or lay down a bunt. On the first pitch, she shows bunt but backs off as it’s a little too high. She gets back into her stance. This time, she sees something she likes, runs right up to the ball and slaps it right over the head of the third baseman. Blitz’s speed, much like her name suggests, makes it an easy single, and the Hoosiers have their leadoff hitter on. But that’s how Blitz has been doing it for a while now. Whether you go back to her days growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, when she was playing high school softball in seventh grade or her role at IU since freshman year, no matter what she was doing, Blitz has always been on top.

way to third base, driving in two runs as she capped off the 8-1 victory for team USA. “I didn’t even realize how I got to third base, but that was the game,” Blitz said. “It was really cool and special to be a part of something that big.” Capping off the summer with a gold medal was the perfect way to transition into her final season as a Hoosier. But there was still a major question to answer heading into her senior season. After a 23-31 and 9-14 Big Ten finish in 2017, head coach Michelle Gardner stepped down from the program. It was a move that left Blitz and the seniors wondering who would lead their team in the final season of their career. Blitz was asked by Senior Associate Athletic Director Scott Joraanstad if she wanted to be a part of the hiring committee. Blitz didn’t hesitate and served on the board that was responsible for interviewing and hiring her next head coach.

“It was really cool and special to be a part of something that big.” Rebecca Blitz, senior outfielder

* * * One of the biggest honors athletes can receive is the opportunity to wear the USA across their chest. For Blitz, that dream became a reality in the summer of 2017 when she was asked by one of her former IU coaches to try out for team USA in Chicago for a spot to participate in the Maccabiah Games, the third-largest international athletic competition in the world. Growing up as a Jewish athlete, her religion has always been important to her and her family. The decision to represent her country in a tournament dedicated to competing against the best Jewish athletes was an easy one for her. “I didn’t really know everyone ahead of time, but once I met everyone, I felt the instant bond of being one of the few Jewish athletes that plays softball,” Blitz said. Just like she’s always done, Blitz batted leadoff and played center field. She made an instant difference on the team as she went 3-4 with an in-the-park home run in a loss to Canada in pool play. After making their way to the gold medal game, the rematch with Canada was the only thing standing in the way of victory. Things went differently this time as team USA took a 6-1 lead when Blitz came up to bat for the final time. Despite primarily being used as a slap hitter, she decided to change things up this time around. Blitz swung away on the ball to the right-center gap and made her way all the

“My goal since I’ve been here at IU has been to make a difference in the program,” she said. "Finding a new coach and being a part of the committee means I can make an impact well beyond my four years here.” Shonda Stanton was officially named the ninth coach in program history after spending 18 seasons at Marshall, where she won 560 games. But when they first met, Stanton knew that she wanted to coach Blitz. “I was so impressed with the senior staff coming in, especially with Rebecca, because I get to coach someone like this who’s driven and who’s going to be coachable and who’s passionate about what she does,” Stanton said. With the help of Blitz, Stanton has seen success in her inaugural season as the IU coach. After struggling in non-conference play, the Hoosiers have a 13-2 Big Ten record and sit in perfect position to capture a Top-4 seed in the conference tournament. Blitz has been nothing short of impressive this season as she’s riding a 22-game hit streak and has registered at least one in every Big Ten game. * * * One of the primary reasons why Blitz has been so successful this season is because of the person who shares the outfield with her, who always bats ahead or

behind her and pushes her to be a better player — sophomore Gabbi Jenkins. Being from Floyds Knobs, Indiana, Jenkins idolized Blitz in high school before she got to IU. She remembered telling her dad, “Oh my god, I want to be like Rebecca Blitz,” because of how hard she had seen her work. The two were eventually brought together last season as Jenkins quickly became an intricate part of the team. The duo did most things on their own, but this season that’s changed. Before each game, Blitz and Jenkins talk to each other about what they want to exploit in the other team’s pitching, how easy the game is and how they believe that they can get whatever they want. When Blitz begins to approach the plate, Jenkins makes sure to give her some extra words of encouragement, and they do the same handshake that’s ritual for them. What one does, the other follows, especially because they’re both slap-hitting speedsters. They’re a unit, but one of them is the senior leader. When asked about Blitz’s legacy as a Hoosier, Jenkins quickly gathered herself from tearing up because she didn’t want to think about losing her best friend. “She has a way that she carries herself,” Jenkins said. “People will just know Rebecca Blitz as the girl that broke some records, she had more than 200 hits, she’s leading the way especially for slappers, and I’m just excited to be a part of what she’s doing and being her friend because that’s the best part of it.” * * * Blitz is on pace to finish her career as IU’s all-time leader in almost every offensive category including hits, runs and stolen bases. But thanks to the turnaround in Big Ten play, she has a chance to put IU in position for its first Big Ten regular season title since 1994 and that’s what matters most to her. In the final home series of her career, Blitz and IU welcome in No. 14 Michigan. If the Hoosiers can take the series, then they’ll be in sole possession of first place in the conference and will give Blitz the chance to do something that she’s always done — come out on top. “It’s really exciting,” Blitz said. “It’s nothing I would’ve expected three years ago, but it’s a really exciting time to be a Hoosier. It’s really cool being able to control our own destiny.”
