TAMERA RHODES Reporter Diann McKee, vice-president of business affairs, finance and university treasurer, said property at Fifth Street and Wabash Avenue is under consideration to provide housing for students and support downtown redevelopment initiatives by 2015. The idea first originated as a part of the master plan for Indiana

State University’s Strategic Planning Process in 2008-2009 to help meet the growing student housing needs and assist the city in its process to energize downtown Terre Haute, she said.

Members of the ISU community are welcome to take a single copy of each issue of this newspaper. The Indiana Statesman exists for four main reasons: to provide the ISU community with news and information, to serve the campus as a public forum for student and reader, to offer student staff members chances to apply their skills in different aspects of a news publication, and to give students leadership opportunities.

Property on the 500 Block of Wabash Avenue is being considered by Indiana State for possible housing and redevelopment (Photo by Joe Butler).

McKee said that within the past three years, the university’s student population has increased to over 12,000. Mike and Kal Ellis, owners of Ellis Ventures, own many properties near this location. They purchased their first property on the 500 Block of Wabash Avenue in 1986 from Frank Shahadey, their uncle. Since the Ellis’ have a sentimental attachment to the nearby property, Kal Ellis said they have a sense of compassion to see that whatever entity purchases it will share the same vision as they do. Ellis also said their vision is to see the landscape of downtown Terre Haute change for the next 100 years; they believe ISU has the same intent. As of December 2012, the only property left the Ellis’ do not own is the transit property on the northeast corner of Wabash Avenue and Fifth Street. “It’s been clear that that property is available to someone who develops the rest of the block … either [Ellis Ventures] or Thompson Thrift will obtain this property,” said Mike Ellis. Paul Thrift, owner of Thompson Thrift said

it is a simultaneous and multifaceted process, which involves negotiations with ISU and state approval. Therefore by no means is the project to the point of breaking ground. He hopes for a possible start in construction by the end of the year. McKee said the project will provide a suite arrangement to meet ISU’s housing needs for upper-level juniors, seniors or graduate students; not for first year students or students with families. “It is for students that have a desire to live on campus … it is a different type of housing versus traditional housing on campus,” she said. She said ISU has no additional plans to provide parking for the facility at this time, but that should not be an issue due to available parking garages and the close proximity of the housing location.

The Ellis’ said they intend to see a magnificent building on the site to transform downtown Terre Haute dramatically. As property owners and longtime residents of Terre Haute, Kal Ellis said they are very interested in seeing downtown Terre Haute thrive. “The fact that we are ISU alumni makes ISU’s involvement that much more exciting,” he said. Thrift said the project would include new, contemporary retail space and student housing for ISU. “It is exciting and transformational; it will be a crown jewel to the downtown community,” Thrift said.“It’s our intention to complete the project there.”

Indiana State ‘reinvents’ its library

Indiana State’s Cunningham Memorial Library is revamping itself through new furniture and technology, funded by the Office of Information Technology (Photo by Mae Robyn Rhymes).

Kiara Gilbert Reporter Indiana State’s Cunningham Memorial Library is adapting to evolving technology and student needs through a new initiative, “Reinventing the Library: Meeting Campus Needs in the 21st Century.” The project, which began in September 2012, was created to change how the library functions, using input from a campus task force, focus groups and public programs. Dara Middleton, the events coordinator of the library, said libraries are changing and that means a huge step forward in technology for the Cunningham Memorial Library. “We’re doing this project to best know what direction to go to best serve our customers,” Middleton said. Gregory Youngen, associate dean of library services, said the library is readjusting its space to accommodate students as opposed to materials. “The main driving force is the new technology that is coming out. We have to ask ourselves, are we using our space correctly? Do we need all of our space for our collection? We need more space for our students,” Youngen said. Indiana State’s library partnered with the Office of Information Technology to fund and purchase furniture, computers and media scopes. “We recently purchased media scopes which allow groups to partner together,” Alberta Comer, dean of library services,

said. “There are new rooms set up on the second floor that allow people to come in and practice their speeches. We even have a room for those who have low sight, which has larger keyboards and larger screens.” Comer also said students are allowed to check out iPads now for up to four hours. Students have access to white boards and furniture for group work and new computers, as well. Electronic books are rapidly replacing the circulation of paper books being checked out in the library, Youngen said. “There are 155,000 eBooks, which is 10 percent of our collections. That means that there is 10 percent less paper books in circulation. All of our journals and magazines are eBooks now,” he said. Comer said the library is not purchasing any hardback or paperback books at this time because of eBooks’ popularity. “We prefer to buy eBooks because then they will also be available for the distant education program students to use,” Comer said.

Further, the library is taking steps into making research papers and projects easier for the students. “We have a new researching source called LibGuides, to help students search better when doing research projects,” Comer said. “It’s a short-cut to make research easier for students and it helps reach the distant education students also.” A new search tool is being made, which will resemble the Google search engine. Called the Discovery layer, it will search all the information in the library and also filter out irrelevant topics. “The new technology has allowed us to do that. Our materials are already cataloged into our system,” Comer said. Library staff members have conducted a campus-wide survey, designed to get input on how to better meet the researching and teaching needs of a 21st century campus. It began in early February and ended last week.

“We have to ask ourselves, are we using our space correctly? ... We need more space for our students.”

Approximately 30 million men and women in the United States are struggling with eating disorders. According to nationaleatingdisorders. org, eating disorders, like bulimia and anorexia, have both physical and emotional life-threatening consequences that can affect men and women equally. People who have eating disorders have “extreme emotions, attitudes and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues.” There are three common types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder. Anorexia is a disorder where people deny hunger, are obsessed with being skinny, have dramatic weight loss and often comment on being ‘fat’ despite their weight loss. Typically people who have this eating disorder simply eat less than the bare minimum, which denies the body all the nutrients it needs. Bulimia is on the other side of the spectrum. This eating disorder makes people have a regular habit of binge eating and losing control, then either abuse laxatives or make themselves vomit to prevent the weight gain associated with binge eating. Binge-eating disorder is where people over indulge when eating, usually in secret, then feel guilty afterwards and vow to stop, but usually lose control at every meal.

These are all very serious disorders that are brought on by a negative body image. Everyone is different in his or her body design; some people have small hands, large feet, are naturally skinny or they are hairy. Everyone has different physical characteristics and come from different backgrounds. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? How you see yourself is what forms your body image. Although your body may not match up with your body image, what you see can affect your eating and exercise behaviors, your self-esteem and your relationships with others. When you look in the mirror, say to yourself, “I look great today.” By complementing yourself every day you can

heighten your self-esteem and feel good about your body. Even though a body may need some work, it’s nothing to get too obsessed with. We were all made differently and we should like ourselves the way we are. If you find yourself struggling with any eating disorders or a poor body image, there are many people out there who want to help you. We have counselors on campus, and many in the Terre Haute community area, such as the ISU Student Counseling Center and Hamilton Center. If you have an eating disorder, help yourself and we are here to support you. Everybody embrace your body, say you are beautiful and be awesome.

Historic body image ideas have been switched up in the new age In the Middle Ages, it was not unusual for a person to die of starvation. There was hardly enough food to go around, which made it a precious, but costly commodity. Out of this grew the image of beauty as a pale, fat woman. Because they were the only people Devin capable of affording enough food to be fat, nobles were the only people Barker capable of living up to the idealized The body type of a fat woman. This Shoulders gave nobles social privilege over thin peasants, who were looked of Giants the at as malnourished, near death and sickeningly gaunt. After the rise of industrial farming and factoryproduced, unhealthy food, all social classes could easily afford to be fat so the upper-class bourgeoisie that had replaced the aristocracy instead began to construct the concept of beauty as someone thin and tan. Only the upper class easily had the time to spend

outside of the factory or office and the wealth to pay for more expensively produced, healthier foods. Because of these advantages, the upper class has been able to change the way they are percieved by the lower classes, who have become fat largely through little to no access to healthy foods and the time to exercise. Fat people are now characterized as lazy, gluttonous and stupid. The same thing was done with family values. The bourgeoisie needed a way of proving their “moral superiority” over the lower class, so they created the concept of stay-at-home motherhood, which had not existed before. Currently, poor families need as many working members as they can have in order to make ends meet, which means both wife and husband must have jobs. Only the wealthier part of society can afford to have one-half of the potential earning force of the family at work, so they can accuse poorer classes of bad parenting and other such claims to diminish their apparent morality. By appearing to be on higher moral high ground than the lower classes, the wealthy have social superiority over them and therefore control.

This brings us to what inspired an entire week out of the year to be dedicated to the serious issues of eating disorders. Some people become so pressured by these stereotypes and methods of social domination that they try to change their bodies to match the “ideal” presented to us by the upper class. Unfortunately, many of these people are so pressured and feel so dehumanized by their own bodies that they harm themselves through starvation, purging and dieting. These people are guilted by their own families, friends and even the government and school systems because they don’t have the “proper” body mass index, weight or pants size, and in some cases, it kills them. The problem is not these people. It’s society. None of those people would feel the need to do that to themselves if they were taught the truth: that ideal body types vary according to what supports the upper class; they are not based in reality and health. If you are a four foot tall, 250-pound man or woman and you have healthy vitals, do not hate yourself—you are healthy.

Think before going under the needle Tattoos have truly become a part of our generation. All of us know at least one friend that has one or we may even have ink ourselves. According to the Pew Research Center, nearly 36 percent of U.S. adults age 18-26 have at least one tattoo. However, while many people are Kenzie responsible with their tattoo choices, can spend their whole lives McAdams some regretting it. Prove One of the big cons of getting a tattoo is the permanence of it. Them Having your boyfriend Todd’s name Wrong tattooed on your lower back and breaking up three months later is a pretty big downer. The Pew Research Center also states that 17 percent of people do regret getting their tattoo. The drunken night of getting that Hello Kitty tattoo or the Chinese symbol that looks like a huge blob can definitely cause you some emotional distress. There is even a television show called “Tattoo Nightmares” where clients come in with downright horrible tattoos. Some of them look like they’ve been drawn with a pen by an 11-year-old.

There are various reasons for not wanting your ink anymore, but removing them can be painful and pricey. A article states that most tattoos take 10 to 12 sessions to remove it. At $100 a session, a tattoo that started out costing $75 can end up being $2,000 or more for the removal. As stated before, the quality of the tattoo can be a big risk. Without doing your research, you could be tattooed by a regular “Old Joe” who has virtually no experience or training. An online poll at stated that 61 percent of people say that the reputation of a tattoo artist or studio is most important factor when selecting who will tattoo them and where they will get tattooed. Some people are even taking it to the extreme and getting tattoos done at home. Home tattoos are startlingly easy to figure out how to do with the help of the internet. In fact, there is even an Ask How page that describes in detail everything that is needed for it. While this can be seen as a better and cheaper option than professionally done tattoos, it’s still a very bad idea to do a tattoo yourself. An article from The Tribune Star states, “unlicensed or “home” tattooing is both illegal and “very dangerous,” according to the Vigo County Health Department.

The risk of diseases such as hepatitis, Human immunodeficiency virus and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) increases greatly since it is unlikely that tattooing equipment is properly sterilized in these types of settings. Many people are led to getting home tattoos since tattoos are so expensive to get at professional shops. The Pew Research Center shows that a small tattoo is usually around $45 while a large tattoo costs about $150 per hour. They also say that the amount of money the U.S. has spent on tattoos is close to $2 billion dollars. Even though professional tattoos are more expensive, they are worth it in the long run and can even save your life because of a sterile environment and professional artists. Although many people get safe and memorable tattoos, there are some that will face tattoo regret. When thinking about getting your tattoo, consider where you want it to be, what it will be of and where you will get it done. This Spring Break, don’t make the mistake of getting a tattoo you will soon regret.

Jazz and hip-hop duo share cultural connections between the two genres

DJ 2-Tone Jones performs for the students at the Shaolin Jazz Project last Thursday (Photo by Joe Butler).

Amanda Marsh Reporter Students were treated to and educated about the connections between two music genres, jazz and hip-hop, last Thursday at the African-American Cultural Center. The Shaolin Jazz Project included presenters and artists Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones, who performed and gave a presentation on the two genres’ connection. The project seeks to showcase how jazz and hip-hop are parallel to each other. “It’s all about educating where these two cultures of music come from. most people don’t understand how much jazz and hip-hop influence each other,” Watson said. The group performed their artful blend of jazz and hip-hop which included Wu-Tang Clan a cappella

mixed with an assortment of jazz instruments. “We originated from a simple idea,” Watson said. “That’s all it starts with, one idea led to one big project. We thought it’d be cool to take influences we enjoy such as Wu Tang Clan and put them into songs that can balance each other out with jazz as well.” The two producers began the project in Washington, D.C., and have traveled to schools and events all over the United States for almost a year now. The main focus is to educate the individuals on a different type of music known as their own Shaolin Jazz. Gerald comes up with the concept and 2-Tones comes up with the music. “Being a part of this project is definitely a group effort and sharing

the work, it’s something we think is

“It’s all about educating where these two cultures of music come from. Most people don’t understand how much jazz and hip-hop influence each other.” Gerald Watson, The Shaolin Project interesting and we are paying respects to jazz and hip-hop,” Watson said. The two artists performed different

samples they have come up with that incorporate the two sounds. The presenters took the audience back in time to further illustrate the connection between the two music genres. Beginning with a short history lesson about slavery and the civil rights movement progressively changing the face of music, the presentation then transitioned into the drug-induced music stage of the 70’s and 80’s, then to comparing the origins of hip-hop and jazz. “I’m a fan of both, jazz and hip hop, it was nice to see connections between both that I’d never thought of before and actually see them lined up next to each other to see the connections,” Mickeal Key, an experimental psychology graduate student said.

inch ISU within 21-14, but Evansville countered with a Colt Ryan lay-up at the 8:35 mark to stretch the lead out to 23-14. Evansville raced out to an 11-point advantage until Odum hit a 3-pointer with just under seven minutes to go and Mahurin followed with a triple of his own at 6:27 to get ISU within 25-20 in lightening quick fashion. The run continued for ISU as Odum was fouled at the 6:02 mark and he hit both free throws to get the Sycamores within a possession at 25-22. The Purple Aces ran the lead back out to 3022, but the Sycamore offense scored on four consecutive possessions and eight of 10 points overall to cut the Evansville lead down to 32-30 with 3:17 on the clock. Jordan Nelson answered the ISU spurt as the Aces gathered a loose ball that touched the hands of nearly everyone on the floor and buried a 3-pointer to stretch the lead out to 35-30. Trailing 37-32, Cummings hit a breakaway dunk with 1:15 left before the half and Odum drilled a jumper with 47 seconds on the clock to cut the Evansville lead down to just 37-36, at the half. Odum scored 17 points in the first half on a 6-of-10 effort from the floor and a 4-of-4 mark from the free-throw line. It took until the 19:20 mark of the second half, but the Sycamores took their first lead of the game on a Mahurin lay-up off the feed from Odum for a 38-37 advantage. The Sycamores

continued their run around the half and made it a 9-0 spurt when freshman guard Devonte Brown hit a 3-pointer with just over 18 minutes left to give Indiana State a 41-37 lead. The Purple Aces scored four in a row to knot the game before Mahurin hit a pair of free throws to put the Sycamores back ahead 43-41 with 17:12 remaining. The Purple Aces countered by scoring the game’s next 16 points to take a 57-43 lead with 13 minutes left in the contest. Mahurin stopped the run with a 3-pointer at the 12:30 mark to cut the Evansville lead down to 57-46. Cummings hit another trey himself with 11 minutes to go to make it 57-49. Cummings stole the ball with just over 10 minutes left and went all the way to the hoop to score on the fast break and converted the conventional 3-point play to cut the Evansville lead down to 60-54. Playing in his final home game for Evansville, senior Colt Ryan scored 31 points to lead the Purple Aces. Odum led the Sycamores with 20 points while Mahurin had 16 and Cummings finished with 13. Indiana State will return to action in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Friday. The Sycamores will be the number five seed and will face off against number four Evansville at 3:35 p.m. (ET). The game can be seen on FSN Midwest or ESPN3.

Indiana State battled hard and took an early second half lead, but the Evansville Purple Aces were too much offensively for the Sycamores as they captured a 84-68 victory in front of 6,909 fans inside the Ford Center. The Sycamores fell to 17-13, 9-9 MVC while Evansville improved to 18-13, 10-8 MVC. The victory by Evansville breaks a string of eight consecutive seasons in which either the Purple Aces or Sycamores have swept the regular season series and the two teams split this year’s matchup. Indiana State had won four in a row over Evansville. Junior guard Jake Odum, with his 5-of7 effort from the free-throw line, now has 172 free throws on the year and moved past Larry Bird for fifth on ISU’s single season list. Bird’s 221 free throws as a senior in ‘7879 are the school record. The Sycamores hit 42.4 percent of their shots from the field (25-of-59) while Evansville shot 54.4 percent (31-of-57), including a 62.1 percent mark after the half. Odum scored first for the Sycamores with 17:08 left in the first half on a runner in the paint and junior guard Dawon Cummings followed that field goal up with an open 3-pointer from the right wing to get ISU within 6-5 at the 16:47 mark. After Evansville stretched its lead out to seven points, Odum converted a lay-up as the clock ticked under 12 minutes to cut the cushion down to just 15-10. A lay-up from junior forward RJ Mahurin on Evansville with 11:23 remaining answered a UE free throw to make it 16-12, but the Purple Aces scored four in a row to run their lead back out to eight points. Odum hit a pair of free throws with 8:53 on the clock to Redshirt freshman Devonte Brown on the drive for the Sycamores. (Photo by Evan Davis).

Indiana State fought back into the game over the next five minutes, going on a 9-0 run to get within one point, at 42-41, with 11:30 to play. That would be as close as ISU could get, however, as WSU responded with a 7-0 run over the next four minutes, pushing their lead to 49-41 with 7:36 to play. A three-pointer by Munn made the score 51-49 in favor of WSU with 4:03 to play, but the Shockers closed the game on 12-4 run to earn the 63-53 victory. Munn led Indiana State with 17 points, also adding five rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals. Senior Taylor Whitley tallied 13 points while freshman Marina Laramie went for 10 points. Dapprich led the Shockers with 22 points. Indiana State closes out the regular season on the road to Northern Iowa (14-14, 9-7 MVC) on Thursday and Bradley (13-14, 7-9 MVC) on Saturday next week.
