Fraternity floods Winter weather causes pipes to burst over break By Tessa Callender Daily Correspondent

Bare floors, torn up dry wall and personal belongings cluttered the hallway as members of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity dealt with an unexpected plumbing disaster. A comprised 77 known pipes in the ATO house burst at once around Jan. 4, causing all three floors to become completely flooded and totaling an estimated $160,000 in personal and property damages. ATO President Jonathon Schroeder explained that the boiler stopped working during winter break. When temperatures dropped below freezing, the pipes and the water they had in them froze all of the way through. “When we finally got the boiler fixed and the pipes started to heat back up, the water that came into the pipes along with the ice caused the pipes to burst. Since the boiler needs to pull water in to function, it tries to do this, thus causing the continual flooding,” Schroeder said. The original leak started on the third floor, when it happened it seemed as if it was “literally raining” inside the house. Initially, there was standing water a foot deep on each of the floors, which took three to four days to get out. ATO can hold up to 58 members and there are 45 living in the house now. The rooms now out of commission due to this ordeal knocked out 18 of those spots. This inconvenience has been hectic and is causing

By Paige Godden Daily Staff Writer The Varsity Task Force pitched the first of three presentations as to how the GSB could potentially buy the former Varsity Theater,2412 Lincoln Way. The pitch included the information that the building has remained dormant for the past year, not adding any appeal to the CamPetersen pustown area. The task force used examples as to why it would be a good idea for the GSB to look at the property, including a survey given last semester where results showed students wanting something to do other than going to bars and more activities for the under-21 crowd. The plan so far, according to Liberal Arts and Sciences Sen. Anthony Maly, is to play two Keppy movies four nights per week. The movies would play at 6:00, 7:00, 9:00 and 10:00 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. There are two screens in the theater. One room has 400 seats and the other 200. The group expects revenue to come from a full concession stand, the $1 admission charge and theater renting options. The numbers on the presentations suggest that the 400 seat theater would be $600 to rent, and the 200 seat theater $300. Tom Danielson, finance director, also suggested the possibility of allowing students to buy advertising time before programs begin. The presentation figured in some annual expenses including leases, staff, programming, concessions and possible land taxes. This fits into a Senate goal of rejuvenating Campustown,

of continuing on to Papua New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand as planned. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Gates postponed his trip so he and Clinton “can continue to work on the crisis in Haiti.” Obama has directed his administration to provide all aid necessary to assist with relief.

Theater lease proposals edge closer to reality

It’s a brand new year, and the Live Healthy Iowa 100 Day Wellness Challenge begins Jan. 14 to help attain those New Year’s resolutions for a healthier lifestyle. Live Healthy Iowa, previously known as Lighten Up Iowa, was founded in 2002 by the Iowa Sports Foundation to encourage Iowans to become healthier through physical activity and implementing good nutrition. By signing up as a team or individual, one can choose one or both of the two programs in the challenge. One program is the Minutes of Activity Division, where one records minutes of physical activity each week. The other is the Weight Loss Division, where one reports his or her weight online. Since teams range from 2 – 10 members, winners are chosen based on the percent of weight loss per team or the average activity minutes per member in each group. More than 100,000 people from Iowa participated in last year’s challenge, according to Live Healthy Iowa. ISU Extension is a partner of Live Healthy Iowa and has helped bring awareness to communities and education across campus. Last year, 836 people from the ISU organization participated in the challenge, making Iowa State the winner for most participants out of all other colleges and universities. Nicole Bruce, the Live Healthy coordinator, believes this is possible because of “the great support that Iowa State gives and the contributions made by the [ISU] Extension.” “I think that having the program based in Ames helped Iowa State get so many people involved because we were able to get the word out in a very effective way. But the staff at Iowa State really does a great job promoting the Live Healthy Iowa Challenge,” Bruce said. One of those staff members is Sally Barclay, a registered dietitian on campus and a clinician in the food science and health nutrition department at Iowa State. Barclay’s involvement in the Live Healthy Iowa program began in 2003 — her first year working at Iowa State. Barclay strives to bring health awareness and education to the campus. She has recently collaborated with associate professor Greg Welk of the kinesiology department, who offers a work site health promotion class that gets students involved various health promotions such as blogging and regular blood pressure checks on campus. “I think it’s really neat that Iowa has taken on the Live Healthy program. [Its] goal is to make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation. With the increase of obesity in every state, if you can get people involved with a program like this it can really make a difference,” Barclay said. “We try to convince people that there are little choices you can take in your lifestyle that can really make a difference. I tell employees to use the bathroom at the far end


WASHINGTON — U.S. officials are laying out a massive military response to the Haiti earthquake, saying that ships, helicopters, transport planes and a 2,000-member Marine unit are either on the way or likely to begin moving soon. Gen. Douglas Fraser, head of U.S. Southern Command, said Wednesday that one of the U.S. Navy’s large amphibious ships will likely head to Haiti with a Marine expeditionary unit aboard. Fraser said other U.S. military forces are on alert, including a brigade, which includes about 3,500 troops. Fraser said during a news conference with other U.S. officials that the Pentagon is “seriously looking at” sending thousands of Marines to assist with disaster relief efforts and security in Haiti. President Barack Obama promised earlier Wednesday to mount an all-out rescue and humanitarian effort to help the people of Haiti overcome a “cruel and incomprehensible” tragedy.” The president said the relief effort is gearing up even as the U.S. government is working to account for Americans who were on the island nation when the disaster struck late Tuesday afternoon. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton cut short an extended trip to the AsiaPacific region to deal with the earthquake crisis in Haiti, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates called off a planned trip to Australia where he and Clinton were to attend an annual summit. Clinton told reporters in Hawaii on Wednesday she would return to Washington to help oversee U.S. relief efforts instead

some members to have to triple up in rooms. “We weren’t really concerned about cramming into fewer rooms. The main concern is that our house as a whole stays intact,” Schroeder said. “The initial reaction was concern that we weren’t going to be able to live in the house for the semester. Finding 50 guys a place to live in a week’s time would have made this ordeal extremely difficult. Fortunately, we had members here at the time that could respond quickly and contain the damage as much as they could so that all the rooms were not damaged.” Cleanup crews got into the house right away after the damage was discovered and Hoffman Construction from Ames, who worked on an $80,000 bathroom restoration in the ATO house this summer, are working diligently to renovate the house, hoping to have it completed by April. Since the problem was taken care of in a timely manner there are not any health concerns or mold issues since all of the damaged walls and floors have been disposed of. Damage was caused to all levels of the house, but the worst occurred in the dining room. That is ATO’s last priority, however, since they would like to get the room dilemma taken care of first. Anything that was dismantled by the water is being ripped out, including all of the dry wall and carpet that was impacted by the water. ATO also plan on re-doing the tiling on the stairs. Jacob Tillotson, a third year member of ATO,


of the building, and if you go two to three times during the day it could really make a difference in your steps.” Other employees such as JoAnn Miller of the ISU Ciras staff, and Larry Olofson, who works in information technology in the department of residence, also have participated in Live Healthy Iowa and plan on doing so again this year. Miller participated in the program two years prior to working at Iowa State. “It’s nice to have a common goal with my staff besides our everyday work,” Miller said. Miller’s team does a number of things to keep up their team motivation throughout the program: Providing healthy meals at staff meetings, posting a chart

said, “The chapter reaction was one of disappointment, but also of acceptance. No one wanted it to happen but, it could have been a lot worse. As a chapter we help each other no matter what, so this situation is just another chance to help a brother out.” Though Tillotson was one of the fortunate ones who didn’t have any personal damage, some lost sound systems, speakers and computers because of this adversity. Most of the damages are covered by insurance for the personal losses as well as the house, besides the $2,500 deductible which will come from the chapter. While the majority of the pipes in the house have been fixed, there may still be more that have not been found. Additionally, there is still water in the walls and the house has yet to complete its drying process fully. They hope to have all damages assessed by the end of the week so the construction crew can begin working on the property. “To solve an issue that is as substantial as this, it’s really a big balancing act,” Schroeder said. Bouncing communication from the 50 members that are coming back to their personal items damages, to our corporation board members to the insurance company doesn’t really allow for a lot of down time, especially with school starting. Luckily, this is the best time for it to happen. If it was during finals week, the guys would be a lot more unsettled about it.” ATO has had pipes burst in the past, but nothing like this. This sudden misfortune was a fluke for the most part that was unfortunately exasperated by the low temperatures recently endured in Iowa.

to see who’s ahead in the competition at the end of each week and making wagers with other teams within the Ciras staff. While Miller’s goal each year for the program is to live healthier and exercise, this year she has an added twist. “This year I have my first grandchild, and I want to be able to do any physical activity while being a grandma and a part of my grandchild’s life.” Olofson has had a very positive experience with the Live Healthy Iowa program as he has participated since 2003. “I think this is a great program because it’s not for a restricted group of people,” Olofson said. “It’s for all people of all ages, sexes, sizes, individuals and teams. It’s not just something for people who are already active, but for people who want to become and stay consistent in physical activity.”

The Live Healthy Iowa Web site contains many resources to help individuals with the program. One may sign up at any time throughout the challenge between Jan. 14 and April 23. There is a $20 entry fee for each team, but you can obtain a coupon at Ames area Hy-Vees for $5 off the entry fee. By signing up for the challenge, you will receive a coupon book, T-shirt, a chance to win individual and team prizes throughout the challenge, nutrition and recipe tips, a team leaderboard, 100 days of access to Training Peaks, meal plans, workouts and a one-year subscription to a lifestyle magazine listed on the Web page.

from PAGE 1 Danielson said. Rejuvenating Campustown is a goal of the Ames City Council, GSB and City Council Liaison Paul Keppy said. Keppy said that Ames City Council has set up a list of goals and tasks they have been working on. The first was reminding students the 2010 census is important. Each student counted represents between $12,000 and $16,000, Keppy said. Keppy listed several goals of council members. The

council is planning on creating a community vision, promoting economic development and going green. GSB Vice President Chandra Peterson has some goals of her own that she will be working on this semester. Peterson said over break she put together the bylaws of the Campustown Action Association. Peterson also mentioned goals for the Green Umbrella, including increasing membership and making it into a permanent organization. Making the Second Annual Sustainability Symposium better than last year’s is also on Pe-

terson’s list. The Senate as a whole is down 11 members from last semester. College Panhellenic Council Senator and Senate Public Relations Chair Chelsea Zigtema, resigned, allowing for John Schultz, business senator and student online director of the Iowa State Daily, to take over the position. The Executive Cabinet is also down three members after a resignation, an internship opportunity and one member graduating. The Cabinet positions will be filled at next week’s meeting.

By Elliot Spagat and Martha Mendoza Associated Press Writers TIJUANA, Mexico — It will take more than a few arrests of top drug kingpins to end the vicious cycle of drug violence plaguing Mexico. While “El Teo” Teodoro Garcia Simental was the fourth major trafficking suspect to be apprehended or killed since President Felipe Calderon launched a major offensive three years ago, 20 more highprofile drug lords — including billionaire Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the leader of the vast Sinloa Cartel — remain at large. And the vacuum created by Garcia’s arrest Tuesday in Baja California is expected to fuel even more violence. “I know that politicians are making a big deal about this arrest, but honestly there is a line of ill-intentioned people waiting to take the place of that man,” said Dulce Gonzalez Armendez, a 25-year-old receptionist in Tijuana. “Not only do I believe this will not bring peace to Baja California, but I also think things will get even worse.” Oscar J. Martinez, a history professor at the University of Arizona who studies the cartels, agreed. “It will just create more violence, mayhem and suffering for ordinary people as his associates retaliate and rival gangs take advantage of perceived weaknesses in the camps of competitors,” he said. Garcia started as an errand boy in the drug trade in the 1990s and slowly worked his way up the ranks before he made a power play two years

The increased pressure is also prompting some wouldbe cartel bosses to refuse leadership positions, said Rafael Reyes, chief of the Mexican sector of Drug Enforcement Administration’s office of global enforcement. “They know the day that they decide to assume that leadership position is the day they have an X marked on their backs, and that’s a challenge to that specific power base that these guys operated under,” Reyes said.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Leaders should have done more to investigate numerous hazing allegations against a gay sailor and others in a unit stationed in Bahrain several years ago, the Navy said Wednesday. The Chief of Naval Operations has sent a letter of counseling to retired Vice Adm. Robert T. Conway, the former Commander, Naval Installations Command, who was the final endorser of a June 2007 investigation that has been criticized for failing to be thorough. The letter notes “more should have been done to determine what officers in the chain of command knew about allegations of hazing and what actions they took to address those allegations,” said Navy spokeswoman Cmdr. Elissa Smith. In October, the Navy announced that the former leader of the bomb-sniffing dog unit would be removed and forced to retire after the Navy reviewed allegations of hazing and sexual harassment against the gay sailor and others. One of the hazing victims, Joseph Rocha, said he decided to leave the Navy in 2007 by telling

The dispatched troops would aim to keep the peace in the event of post-disaster unrest as part of a larger international effort overseen by the United Nations, whose peacekeeping operation headquarters was destroyed in the quake. About 100 U.N. personnel are believed to be trapped in the ruins. “It’s going to be our assessments that are going to determine, in conjunction with (the U.N. mission) and the other international partners who are there, how best to deal with any security situations that come up,” Fraser said. “We don’t know precisely what the situation is on the ground,” he added. “So we’re leaning forward to provide as much as capability as quickly as

He had been attending the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School in Rhode Island in hopes of attending the academy.

The Navy in September was reviewing its investigation of more than 90 hazings between 2004 and 2006 in the Military Working Dog Division at Naval Security Force, Bahrain. The former unit leader, Michael Toussaint, is scheduled to appear before a retirement grade determination board in Norfolk, Va., on Feb. 4, Smith said. A letter of counseling also was issued to Capt. Gary Galloway, one of the unit’s former commanding officers. “The letter of counseling reinforces that when senior officers observe conduct that is questionable, they must act quickly and firmly to verify the nature and purpose of the activity and ensure Navy policies prohibiting hazing are strictly enforced,” Smith said.

The Air Force is sending people to provide air traffic control and operations at the Port-au-Prince airport. Coast Guard helicopters evacuated four injured U.S. Embassy personnel to a hospital at the Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Southcom did not release their names.

The president, who has been involved in ensuring a quick response since Tuesday night, said in a statement from the White House Diplomatic Reception Room that one of the government’s top priorities is to quickly locate U.S. embassy employees and their families, as well as all other American citizens living and working in Haiti. He urged Americans trying to locate family members to contact the State Department at 1-888-407-4747.

Opinion Atypically cold winter shocks Predictable risks PAGE 6 | Iowa State Daily | Thursday, January 14, 2010 Editor Sophie Prell | | 515.294.6768



Iowa students


It was effin’ cold over break. If you were in Hawaii or Mexico, maybe you enjoyed something like 50 degree weather, but even if you left Iowa, you were pretty hard-pressed to find anywhere in the country that boasted temps you would write home about. Even Florida growers were in crop-saving crisis mode, struggling to keep their orange trees above the dangerous temperature of a measly 28 degrees. The Daily Iowan sent back pictures of fans in sweatshirts, standing ankle-deep in the Atlantic. 28 degrees. In Florida. That’s just sad. Not only have we survived #iowadeathstorm09 and #iowadeathstorm10 — conversation hashtags you can search on Twitter — but we’ve weathered windchills approaching 30 and 40 degrees below zero. At those temperatures, exposed skin freezes in less than 30 minutes. For most of us, break involved shoveling, snowblowing and sitting around inside, huddled by a fireplace or air vent, under layers of blankets, just trying to keep warm. If you vacationed in western Iowa, you likely enjoyed an even more memorable Christmas Eve — dinner by candlelight. It’s winter, many say, and it’s winter in Iowa. If you’re from out of state and didn’t Google “winter” or “an Iowa winter” before you enrolled, blame only yourself for losing a limb on your walk across campus. And, unfortunately, it’s not nearly over. This week, on the other hand, seems to be a godsend. According to local meteorologists, this weekend holds mid-30’s in store, and some claim we may even approach 40 degrees this time next week. Those are positive degrees. Awesome. So find something to do with your long weekend that includes basking in the balmy glory of the 30’s — 30-degree temperatures, that is. Because, in Iowa, it isn’t every day you get to enjoy the sweet sight of melting snow, which makes the best snowballs, in case you didn’t know. Just enjoy it while it lasts. There’s more cold to come.

Comment of the Day: Today’s comment was left in response to “ADAMS: Profile all foreigners” on Jan. 13. “From a security standpoint, I don’t think profiling is a great solution. Any time you show a bias to our selection of possible terror suspects, it provides an opportunity for that bias to be exploited by the people we are at war with. As suggested before, we should screen foreigners from Arab nations. Consequently, a Nigerian man used to perform the terror attack on Christmas. If we show that we are screening foreign travelers, the enemy (which is not stupid) will recruit terrorists from within the U.S. I believe we need to have tighter security at airports and closer ties with our foreign allies to help us prevent more attacks. However, the use of profiling will only expose blind spots in our security that can be easily exploited by our enemies.” — “Bryan Bakevich”

ith the U.S. Senate and the House both having passed a health care bill, it seems almost inevitable that the federal government will soon have a greater say in the way health insurance works. One of the major problems with the current situation, according to many lawmakers, is that insurance companies often will not cover preexisting conditions. In other words, if you’re sick or in need of medical care in some way and don’t already have insurance, it’s very possible that nobody will sell you any, or will charge you significantly more if they do. I have a few related examples that I’d like to share with you before I comment on this further, so please bear with me for a moment. I promise I’m going somewhere with this. Say I flip a coin X number of times, and then ask you to come as close as possible to predicting what fraction of the time you believe the coin will land on heads. You would probably guess around half the time, and that would be a good guess. But if X = 1, you won’t even be close. Your chance of being correct, or at least closer to correct would increase significantly if I flipped the coin twice. And the more I flip, the better your guess is. For example, the sample standard deviation — which is a measure of the amount of variability in the outcomes — of the fraction of times the coin lands on heads for only one flip is .71. If I flip it twice, this number falls to .41. For 20 flips, it’s .11 and after 100 flips of a coin, the sample standard deviation is only .05. Another example: If I flip a coin 10 times, the chance of heads coming up between four and six times is 66 percent. If I flip a coin 100 times, the chance of heads coming up 40-60 times is 96 percent. The purpose of these examples is simply to show that the more times you repeat a process, the more likely you are to be close to the average result. Keeping that in mind, imagine that, at the end of each year, everyone is forced to roll a die. If you roll a six, you lose $12,000. If not, you lose nothing. Now imagine that you are given a choice: For $2,000 per year, you don’t have to roll. Would you do it? On average, the cost to you is equal in both scenarios. But chances are you would prefer the “pay $2,000 each year” option. The first option would force you to continually save your money just in case you rolled a six. The second option allows you to accurately predict your outflow and spend your money accordingly. In other words, it eliminates the risk. But what if you weren’t offered the second option? What would you do? What I would do is this: Get a bunch of people together and offer to cover costs if they roll a six on the condition that they each give me $2,100 per year. For an extra $100 per year, on average, I would allow people to predict their die-rolling expenditures. For many people this would be worth $100 more per year. For some it might not, and they would save money on their own instead. But what about my level of risk? After all, couldn’t I lose a lot of money if enough people rolled sixes all at once? Well, technically, it is possible, but it is statistically very unlikely. That’s because, as I explained earlier, once you get enough people together, it will become much easier to predict the fraction of people

Health insurance is surprisingly similar to predicting the outcomes of coin flippings. Insurance companies actively participate in a system that is known as risk-pooling. This system allows them to assume your risk level for you. Courtesy photo illustration:

who will roll a six. This is known as risk-pooling, and it is what insurance companies do: They are paid to assume your risk for you. That catch is, if done on a large enough scale, it’s not risky at all. Of course, this assumes that the insurance companies can accurately predict your level of risk, which is considerably more difficult than predicting the rolls of a die. That being said, certain conclusions about risk levels can be reached. For example, statistically speaking, people who have gotten a DUI are more likely to be in a car accident. People who smoke are more likely to get emphysema. People who wrestle bears for a living are more likely to die an early death. People who have appendicitis are more likely to need their appendix removed. Now back to the die rolling example for a minute. If you knew that someone was going to roll a six, how much would you charge that person for insurance? You’d charge at least

$12,000 if you don’t want to lose money. Of course, that would kind of defeat the purpose of insurance. If you have appendicitis, the chances needing an appendectomy are pretty darn close to 100 percent. That’s not what we call a risk. That’s what we call an inevitability. So how much do you think an insurance company is going to charge to insure someone with appendicitis? Probably pretty close to the price of an appendectomy. That’s the problem with the whole “preexisting condition” debate that’s going on. The point of insurance is to insure a risk. Pre-existing conditions are not risks. They are conditions. You know about them, thus no uncertainty and therefore no risk. If insurance companies are forced to insure pre-existing conditions, they will charge people with pre-existing conditions a much higher rate. If they cannot do this, they will charge everyone a higher rate to offset it. If they cannot do that either, they will likely go out of business. Our elected officials need to come to their senses and realize that to insure a risk, a risk must first exist.


Education proves key to pregnancy prevention E

llen Gaffney’s story has a happy ending. She wouldn’t be sharing it if it didn’t. When she carried out her adoption plan in 1960 she didn’t ask if it was a boy or girl, “I made up my mind that I would never try to find him or her. I made up my mind and I told my parents,” she said. She didn’t expect that child to find her or to discover that she has three grandsons. I met Ellen 12 years ago at the Buchanan County Courthouse where she has served more than 20 years on the Buchanan County Board of Supervisors. She’s hard to forget, because there are few female supervisors in Iowa. She’s barely five feet tall, but she’s a force to be reckoned with. Our paths have crossed often, most recently when I cut a ribbon at the county hospital in Independence for the new family planning clinic, a satellite of Allen Women’s Health in Waterloo. I spoke about the Iowa Initiative to Reduce Unintended Pregnancies’s goal to create a national model for reducing the number of unintended pregnancies among 18-to 30-year-olds. Afterward, she pulled me aside to tell me about her own unintended pregnancy and her reluctance to think or talk about it all these years. Many people tell me their personal sto-

Christie Vilsack is the Executive Director, Iowa Initiative to Reduce Unintended Pregnancies ries after I tell them about my job. Most of them still feel the stigma and are reluctant to talk about their unintended pregnancies despite their need to tell someone. Ellen, now 67, said the stigma doesn’t matter anymore. She wanted to share the news of a daughter and three grandsons with her colleagues at work, her friends and especially her parents, who played an important role in her story. Ellen said that when she discovered her pregnancy, “it wasn’t a hard choice.” She knew she wasn’t ready to have a child. She wanted to go to college. Ellen said her parents had never talked with her about “the birds and the bees.” She had no idea that the “flu” that kept her home from school was morning sickness. Unlike many parents, however, Ellen’s parents thought the decision to give the child up for adoption was hers. The father of her child wanted to get married. She did not. Her parents already had young children to raise. She decided to attend a business school in Omaha for three months before she

“showed” and then went to live with relatives in Peoria, Ill. until the baby was born. For her, giving up the baby was not a hard choice. In 1999, Ellen received a call at the courthouse. A voice asked Ellen if she had had a child out of wedlock in 1960. The woman was calling from an adoption agency on behalf of a child searching for her birth mother. She left a phone number and Ellen returned the call when she had more privacy. Without telling anyone else in her family she agreed to meet her daughter, Lynn. Lynn was as apprehensive about the meeting as Ellen, but they talked and went to dinner. Over a glass of wine, they decided that Ellen should meet her grandchildren. “Telling my parents was hard,” Ellen said. “My dad got teary, something he never did. ‘I always knew this day would come,’” he said. Later she told the rest of her family, and discovered that one of her sisters had known about her pregnancy all along. Today, Ellen proudly displays a new photo album with pictures of Lynn, Lynn’s husband, Jeff, and the three boys — pictures of birthdays and graduations and the kinds of family occasions that most of us take for granted decorate her home. Sam and Conner

are active in high school baseball and basketball. Jay, who is in college, plays tennis. The story of Lynn finding Ellen ends happily. Many similar stories do not. It seems to me that the saddest stories have in common a failure to communicate. In Ellen’s time many young women had been told so little about sex that they weren’t sure how they got pregnant. Many were not allowed to make the important decisions about their own lives and the lives of their babies. Some were shamed into giving up their children and often were not told of their legal rights in the adoption process. They were often promised that contact information would be left in their files in case a birth child wanted later to contact them, but it was not. Many young women felt alienated, ashamed and never regained their self-esteem. Ellen hopes that sharing her story will encourage people to be more open about educating young people about relationships, sexuality and preventing unintended pregnancies. She wants to make one thing clear about birth mothers and their babies, “You give them up, you don’t give them away.” Ellen’s daughter has found comfort in that.

Pope’s statement controversial Marginalization of some minority groups dates back several centuries


his week, Pope Benedict XVI further connected the Roman Catholic Church’s opposition of same-sex unions to issues of environmental degradation by implying that laws protecting same-sex partners undermines “the differences between the sexes” and were, therefore, threats to creation. He made these comments to a group of diplomats at his annual appraisal of world events. He asserted, “Creatures differ from one another and can be protected, or endangered, in different ways, as we know from daily experience. One such attack comes from laws or proposals which, in the name of fighting discrimination, strike at the biological basis of the difference between the sexes.” These statements were a reiteration of similar concerns the pope announced in 2008 during his Vatican Address, when he implied that homosexuality is as great a threat to humankind as climate change. He argued that saving humanity from homosexual behavior is as important as saving the rainforest from destruction. Humanity, he asserted, needs to “listen to the language of creation” to realize the intended

Dr. Warren J. Blumenfeld

is a Professor of curriculum and instruction roles of man and woman. He warned of the “blurring” of the natural distinctions between males and females, and called for humanity to protect itself from self-destruction. The pope compared behavior beyond traditional heterosexual relations as “a destruction of God’s work.” The pope’s warnings last year came only two years after another of his controversial Christmas time addresses in which he quoted a 14th century Christian emperor who asserted that the Islamic Prophet Muhammad imposed on the world only “evil and inhuman” conditions. Pope Benedict XVI, by invoking his interpretation of Christian scripture, follows a long history of popes who, throughout the ages, have employed these texts to justify and rationalize the marginalization, harassment, denial of rights, persecution and oppression of entire groups of people based on social identities. At various historical moments, Popes have applied these texts, sometimes taken in tandem and at other times used selectively, to establish and maintain hierarchical positions of power, domination and privilege over individuals and groups targeted by these texts. On slavery: Quoting a number of biblical

passages, Pope Nicholas V, in 1452, composed his Dum Diversas, which granted to the kings of Spain and Portugal the right to reduce any “Saracens [Muslims] and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. Then in 1548, Pope Paul III, reasserted that any free person may buy, sell and own slaves, and runaway slaves were to be returned to their owners for punishment. Pope Gregory I in 595 sent a priest to Britain to purchase Pagan boys to work as slaves on church estates. Around the 600 A.D., Pope Gregory I wrote, in Pastoral Rule, “Slaves should be told...not [to] despise their masters and recognize that they are only slaves.” And between 1629-1661, Popes Urban VII, Innocent X and Alexander VII, purchased Muslim slaves. On the Jewish: In 1239, using biblical passages as his rationale, Pope Gregory IX ordered all copies of the Jewish holy book, the Talmud, confiscated and in 1322, Pope John XXII ordered all copies of the Talmud burned on the eve of the Jewish Passover. Pope Paul IV, in his Papal bull Cum nimis absurdum, segregated Jews within a walled ghetto with locked gates at night to keep them separated from the Christian majority, and to emphasize their inferior legal and social status. Pope Pius IX, in 1858, kidnapped a young boy,

Edgardo Mortara, from his Jewish parents in Bologna, Italy, and raised him in Rome as a Catholic against his parents’ wishes on the justification that a Catholic maidservant had secretly baptized the boy earlier when he was gravely ill. Pope Pius IX also referred to the Jews of Rome as “dogs.” The church has since admitted regret for many of the actions and words of former popes. The Reverend Angelo Roncalli, who later became Pope John XXIII, was honored by Jewish leaders around the world for his work in saving large numbers of Jews during the German Holocaust. As pope, he convened the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), which authorized the declaration Nostra Aetate and approved in 1965 under Pope Paul VI. An article in the document, while certainly not going far enough, stated: “True, authorities of the Jews and those who followed their lead pressed for the death of Christ; still, what happened in His passion cannot be blamed upon all the Jews then living, without distinction, nor upon the Jews of today.” Moreover, the church “deplores the hatred, persecutions and displays of anti-Semitism directed against the Jews.” Coming back to the church’s positions on same-sex identities and lives, I wonder how long it will take the church to apologize for its long-standing marginalization and persecution of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Time will only tell.



Cut executive budgets first

The following comment was left in response to “Center encourages students to pursue careers in math, science, engineering education” on Jan. 13th.

Our three major universities along with other educational institutes in Iowa are struggling to handle the ten percent budget cut — Gov. Chet Culver’s “solution” to our budget avoids the tough choices that need to be made to better balance the budget and serve Iowans in a cost effective manner. The costs are born disproportionately by students and the state workers who are low on the totem pole, not executive positions where the real fat is located. Actual budget deficit is only eight percent. An additional two percent cut ignores many more jobs that are unnecessarily lost. There are hundreds of parasitic executive positions. Recent attempts in union negotiations to increase the supervisor to staff ratio, as

Joe Lynch is an Ames resident

reported in the Des Moines Register, have not changed this. Many have already been shuffled to executive positions (a paper game) and their high salaries are protected for three years after being moved out of supervisor positions. The direct present cost value to the state from salary payments to at least one hundred of these no work positions is estimated at one hundred million direct dollars, excluding the corruption they cause (examples are the loss of millions in the film tax revenues and IT services duplication including data servers). Many executives are also unqualified for the positions they hold.

Replacing managers with truly experienced personnel is another way to get more for our state tax dollars. Eliminating recently instituted new levels of state bureaucracy is another way to save state dollars. Economic development positions and offices such as the office of management and energy independence should be first priority for cuts. These agencies are duplicating functions that are already performed existing departments such as Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Iowa Department of Economic Development. It is time to cut the fat out of top executive positions in the state government. State tax payers can no longer afford the waste and bad management fostered by these excesses.

“It will be much more fulfilling if the government makes some efforts to transform and the education system. The federal government wants to do a little credit repair with the quality of US education, by throwing a lot of money into math and science education. While this is a noble aim, there are some systemic problems that need to be cured with US education, and it’s going to take more than a few payday loans. For instance, how many people do you know that don’t know “irregardless” is not a word? (It’s a double negative.) Also, anyone knowing the difference between your and you’re, and they’re, their, and there is an extreme minority. We can’t even teach our children our own language! Never mind what it’s going to take to teach math and science better.” —“Summer Dxyz”

Righting the ship Editor’s note: Daily staff writer Jake Lovett recently sat down with ISU football coach Paul Rhoads. This is part one of a two-part series to feature Rhoads and the team’s successes. Check tomorrow’s paper to see his outlook for 2010.

High expectations, strong preparation fuel turnaround By Jake Lovett Daily Staff Writer By now we’ve all heard the story. The hero rides back into his hometown and rescues a sinking ship whose disloyal captain abandoned for a helm he perceived to be more attractive. With hard work, some emotion and a few breaks along the way, Paul Rhoads turned the ISU football program around and took them to the promised land — the Cyclones’ first bowl win since 2004. But we already knew that. One question remains two short weeks after the culmination of this near fairy tale: How? “It was a matter of setting the bar high,” Rhoads said. “Because we rarely exceed our expectations, we wanted to make sure we set them high.” Rhoads’ expectation, as with many other college football coaches, is to be playing in — and winning — a bowl game at the end of each season. “That’s why you play college football,” Rhoads said. “To be playing in late December and early January and enjoy the success that goes with a bowl season.” The team he inherited, however, went just 2–10 the prior season, and had combined for only nine wins in its previous three seasons. The coaching staff’s goals weren’t based around a specific number of wins, either. Rhoads said that, had his coaching staff set a goal in terms of number of wins, it “would’ve immediately set a ceiling” on the team, not allowing them

to fulfill its full potential. But expecting a bowl win wasn’t enough. He said the team buying into the plans laid out by its coaches was key to living up to the high expectations set for it from day one. “Trusting to [lift weights] this way, to run this way, to change direction this way, and to working just as hard to execute what they asked them to do proved fruitful for us, as far as our development goes,” said Rhoads, who has been in coaching for 21 years. For the senior class — a group that featured center Reggie Stephens and safety James Smith — Rhoads would be the third head coach they would play for. However, Rhoads said, the group led the charge to buy in to their newest coach’s big-picture plan. “For them to embrace, follow and

trust at the level they did is the reason we had the success we did.” He said the more experienced players led each day on the field during drills and workouts. “[The seniors] came to work every day,” Rhoads said, “and it doesn’t matter if you’re a true leader, I think, as a senior, you’re sort of anointed that way just because of age.” But even with such high expectations and the players buying in so wholeheartedly ... it wasn’t enough. The team’s work ethic, led by the seniors and captains, was also a major reason for its success. As Rhoads said to his team in the locker room after the Insight Bowl victory over Minnesota: “We do things the right way, don’t we? Day after day, in situation after situation, you do things the right way.”

In his post-game talk with the players, Rhoads recalled that the team had only had to redo a sprint because a person didn’t touch the right line one time all season. Avoiding frustration is something Rhoads said is vital to success, both as a coach and a player. “Just because I don’t execute this block or route or this technique as a defensive end rushing the passer the first time or the second time or the third time,” Rhoads said, “doesn’t mean I’m not going to get it. When you become frustrated that you’re not accomplishing it, then you quit moving forward.” To reach and win in a postseason game, Rhoads said preparation was vital. The team’s work for the 2009 season began almost immediately after its new leader was hired. Players worked out

with strength and conditioning coordinators Yancy McKnight and Clayton Oyster to become a more physical football team. “They had a hunger about them. Young men still desire discipline, and they still desire structure, and we provided that for them,” Rhoads said. “I have never been around a team that has prepared as hard and as well as this football team.” But all of the expectation and preparation in the world wouldn’t have been enough without confidence — and it started with the coach. “It wasn’t that I had the confidence that we could get it done, it was my job to instill that confidence so we could get it done,” Rhoads said. As spring practices began and con-

Cyclones head north to face off against Gophers

Iowa State focuses on consistent rebounding

By Dan Tracy Daily Staff Writer

By Blake Schultz Daily Staff Writer

ISU tennis coach Armando Espinosa might make a stop by the offices of Paul Rhoads and Kevin Jackson before packing up to leave for Rochester, Minn., on Sunday. Rhoads and Jackson have both notched victories over the Gophers in the past month, something Espinosa hopes to replicate when he and his squad takes on Minnesota this Sunday. “That’s what we’re looking for, to go three and [zero] against the Gophs,” said Espinosa. It’s been over two months since the team last played at the WMU Super Challenge but Espinosa feels confident about his team’s chances this weekend after seeing the team return to practice after the holiday break. “They are really beginning to take ownership of the program,” Espinosa said. “The bar has been set and they are rising to the occasion.” Three players in specific, sophomore Maria Fernanda Macedo, junior Liza Wischer and senior Alyssa Palen received recognition by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association for their performance over the Cyclones first five tournaments. In the 2010 season’s first ITA rankings, Macedo ranked as the No. 18 singles player in the Central Region and as a doubles pair, Wischer and Palen ranked as the No. 10 doubles pair in the Central Region. Macedo, who leads the team with a 9-2 singles record, was surprised when she read the email from Espinosa about the ranking, but now she feels motivated to stay in the rankings and “win as many matches as I can.” “I really feel inspired now,” Macedo said. Macedo also said that she felt she was becoming a more intelligent and patient player, two traits that she will need with the stiff competition she will face on Sunday. In singles play, Macedo will square off against either Tijana Koprivica, the No. 3 ranked player in the Central Region and No. 111 in the country, or Alessandra Ferrazzi, the No. 16 ranked player in the Central Region. The No. 3 Doubles pair for the Cyclones, Wischer and Palen were just as surprised when they received the phone call from Espinosa about the ranking. Posting a 5-1 record on the season, the pair has found great success after beginning to play together less than three months ago. “We definitely want to stay [in the rankings],” said Wischer. “And make it to the top,” added Palen. In addition to the new ranking, Palen may take on a new opponent, but a familiar face as she could potentially square off against her sister Alexa, a freshman at Minnesota, in doubles play. As a team, Minnesota is ranked No. 69 in the nation in the latest ITA rankings. Minnesota is 3-0 all-time against Iowa State, having won in 2002 and in each of the past two

at Iowa State


Where: Rochester, Minn. When: 1 p.m. Sunday seasons; both times by a score of 5-2. Minnesota will be one of the three teams, along with Old Dominion (No. 52) and VCU (No. 43) that the Cyclones will face in the nonconference schedule that are ranked in the top 75 nationally. The Cyclones are hoping that a win over the Gophers would be a huge boost not just for their own ranking, but for their visibility in the national ranks. “We have taken a team that no one really knew about to one that people are actually starting to look at,” said junior Erin Karonis. Espinosa also knows that a tough non-conference schedule will bode well for the team once they square off against the top programs in the Big 12 such as Baylor and Texas. “We want to make sure we come into the Big 12 [conference schedule] as prepared as we can be,” Espinosa said.

The party’s over...

Even Santa has


The No. 6 Iowa State hockey team is looking to rebound this weekend after a bump in the road last week. The Cyclones will face No. 15 MichiganDearborn on the road 7:30 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday. The Cyclones went into winter break as hot as they’d been all season. Iowa State had just came off a huge sweep over Iowa and looked solid. Last weekend the Cyclones returned to action against No. 20 Western Michigan and came away with a split. “They made me a little nervous last week,” said coach Al Murdoch. “They looked a little slow after the three week break. I think as we get more conditioned, we will be more consistent.” Consistency has also been a weak spot this season for the Cyclones. There have been times Iowa State looked unbeatable and then would turn around and lose a game to a lower ranked team. With the Central States Collegiate Hockey League tournament nearly a month away, the Cyclones will have to improve on that part of their game. “We definitely took it up a notch this week,” said goalie Paul Karus. “We are looking to continue what we have here into the playoffs.” Murdoch really emphasized the importance of being a well-conditioned team this week in practice as well. He had the team focus on getting back to the way they were before break, playing with an extremely physical style of play.

Iowa State


Where: University of Michigan-Dearborn Fieldhouse When: 7:30 p.m. Friday 8 p.m. Saturday

“From last weekend, it’s all up,” Karus said. “We’re definitely going to improve, but it’s just the little things that we have to do now in order to improve.” Michigan-Dearborn comes into the weekend series with a 13-9-3 record. Iowa State swept the Wolves on the road with a 4-3 and 4-1 victories last season, but Coach Murdoch believes they are just as good and possibly better. Before the break, the Iowa State goaltenders were playing their best hockey so far. Junior Eric Hudson recorded four shutouts up to that point in the season. Karus had been coming on late as well. The Cyclones picked up a 6-3 win last Friday anchored by Karus. The freshman saved 29 of 32 Western Michigan shots and came off the bench on Saturday and saved nine out of 10 shots. Karus has yet to record a shutout at Iowa State, but if he continues his solid play in net, one may come in the future. “We’ve been trying to keep giving the team a chance to win,” Karus said. “As long as we play well, I believe our team can do enough to win.”

NCAA Football

Kiffin headed back to USC in stunning blind side hire By Greg Beacham AP Sports Writer LOS ANGELES — Nobody was surprised Southern California replaced Pete Carroll with a coach who has rich ties to the Trojans. From Knoxville to Hollywood, almost everybody was stunned to learn exactly which former Trojan is back. Lane Kiffin abruptly left Tennessee after one season Tuesday night to return to USC, where he was an assistant coach for six years before embarking on one of the strangest, swiftest and rockiest journeys in recent coaching history. After 20 tumultuous games as the Oakland Raiders’ head coach and 14 months at Tennessee in which he accumulated nearly as many NCAA and SEC reprimands as victories, the 34-year-old Kiffin has emerged with one of the most coveted jobs in college football. He will be introduced by the Trojans on Wednesday afternoon. “This is something that happens very quick,” Kiffin said in a brief statement on Tennessee’s

campus Tuesday night while hundreds of shouting, mattress-burning fans gathered outside the building. “I really believe the only place I would have left here to go was ... Southern California.” Kiffin was a blind side choice by embattled USC athletic director Mike Garrett and school trustees, who apparently gauged the interest of three coaches with strong Trojans ties — former players Jack Del Rio and Jeff Fisher and former assistant coach Mike Riley — before quickly grabbing Kiffin 24 hours after Carroll’s farewell. “We are really excited to welcome Lane Kiffin back to USC,” Garrett said. “I was able to watch him closely when he was an assistant with us, and what I saw was a bright, creative young coach who I thought would make an excellent head coach here if the opportunity ever arose. I’m confident he and his staff will keep USC football performing at the high level that we expect.” Kiffin might be leaving Knoxville just ahead of an angry mob, but he’s bringing along his father, defensive coach Monte Kiffin, and defensive line coach Ed Orgeron, a former USC assistant.

By Sarah Binder Daily Staff Writer

The Menu, feaste [tentative]:

This weekend, the music department is preparing to take some people back to an earlier time — way back. The ISU Singers, the Music Men, Musica Antiqua and Orchesis II will all come together to create a scene of England, as it would have been in 1605, for the 45th annual Madrigal Dinners on Friday and Saturday evening. “It’s like a play and a concert at the same time,” said Don Simonson, professor of music and the designated King James I of England at the dinners. He is in charge of directing the evening’s activities, including leading the traditional procession, introducing the performers and leading toasts. The dinner consists of traditional foods from the period such as wassail punch and plum pudding. Throughout the meal, small groups of singers and musicians break off to serenade groups of guests. But one of Simonson’s favorite Madrigal parts comes after the dinner is finished and the more formal concerts begin; that is when he can enjoy the music as an audience member. He said there is a “creative genius” to the music offered; that pitch, rhythm and harmony come together to make music people still love to hear hundreds of years after it was composed. “It’s great to hear these college-age singers sing so beautifully,” he said. In addition to the musical performances, the ISU Singers create new, lighthearted plays each year. “Jester and Jouster,” a comical work, will be featured this weekend, and another play will give the audience ample opportunity to get involved. James Rodde, co-producer of the dinners and director of choral activities, said the entertainment will also include juggling and performances by the campus dance group Orchesis

II. All the performances are complimented by the atmosphere created by the Great Hall, which will be lit only by candles and decorated with garland. Musica Antiqua, a group consisting mainly of faculty and staff, bring added authenticity to the evening with their collection of interestingly named 12th to 17th century instruments, such as the hurdy-gurdy or krummhorns. The performers also adorn themselves in full costumes resembling 17th century English dress. There are a full range of characters, from the king and his court to jesters and beggars. But dressing up isn’t limited to the performers. Randy Compton, coproducer of the dinners and member of the Music Men, said there is one dedicated group of students that comes dressed in elaborate costumes each year. Each night, the best dressed guest will be awarded two free tickets to next year’s dinner. All of the elements will come together to create an experience from another time: “for about three hours, we suspend reality,” Simonson said. Iowa State has a long history of collegiate Madrigal Dinners — Compton said it was “one of the earliest.”

Disclosures: Sarah Binder covers the music department By Sarah Binder Daily Staff Writer Covering the music department will be a learning experience for me.

musical. But of course, I still have my preferences. I like mixing old and new styles,

bits of humor and danceable music. I’m not a big listener of instrumental or pieces composed by names such as Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky or Mendelssohn, but that’s not to say I don’t enjoy hearing them. I dislike excessive length, but then, does anyone even notice the length of a good production? While I am distant from the music

world, I have connections to other art forms. As an art and design major, I have a healthy fascination with the subject of art history. I was a dancer for 13 years. The experience left me with an admiration of those who are truly gifted and a deep love of the “Nutcracker Ballet.” Some more general preferences of mine: I like anything fresh and

new, dark comedy and visual stylization. I am not a fan of unresolved endings — “Waiting For Godot” or “Lady or the Tiger” — or blatant endings that only serve to set up sequels — most horror movies nowadays. I also dislike formulas that have been done a million times over — I’m looking at you romantic comedies.

Yesterday’s solution

Joke of the Day GENEROUS STUDENTS Two college students, Frank and Matt, are riding on a New York City subway when a beggar approaches them asking for spare change. Frank adamantly rejects the man in disgust. Matt, on the other hand, whips out his wallet, pulls out a couples of singles and gladly hands them over to the beggar with a smile.

“What on earth did you do that for?” shouts Frank. “You know he’s only going to use it on booze.” Matt replies, “And we weren’t?”

Daily Sudoku

Daily Horoscope : by Nancy Black & Stephanie Clements

Scorpio: Stay in bed today Today’s Birthday: (1/14/2010) Your luck this year depends on logical patterns. This suits your basic nature, and it also challenges you to hone your intellect through personal studies and creative projects involving group effort. Go beyond what you can see to test the future results of your plans. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is a 6 -- Focus your thoughts on personal issues. You benefit from expanding your database of possibilities. Avoid arguments. They hold you back.

Solution: INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold borders) contains every number 1 to 9. For strategies on solving Sudoku, visit

Cancer (June 22-July 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Everything seems to slow down today and take twice as long as you’d planned. No amount of pushing matters. Go with the flow. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 5 -- Consider your personal agenda and follow it. What you need is focused energy. There will be plenty of time to enjoy yourself this evening. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- People in your work environment confuse important issues with weak data. It’s up to you to sort out the facts and list them clearly. A female resists.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 5 -- You have multiple opportunities to handle basic decisions. Progress provides great relief. A co-worker becomes a devoted ally.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 5 -- Take time to analyze your decisions and assess the wisdom of the direction you’ve chosen. It’s easier to make a change now than to face the music later.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) -- Today is a 6 -- You feel a big change coming, but you’re unclear about its nature. Prepare yourself by imagining a wideopen field to play in.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 5 -- Stay in bed today and read the paper. Then drag yourself out, face the world of adjustments and make the most of what you find.

··· To the dude sitting next to me in a computer lab at Coover...I can totally hear the chorus of ‘Party in the USA’ coming from your headphones. Fooled me with that brojacket your wearing ··· To the annoying people knocking on my window in Martin. No, I am not going to let you in. It’s your own fault.

The beggar thanks him kindly and then continues on to the other passengers. Frank is outraged by his friend’s act of generosity.

Share Your Happiness!

just sayin’



Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -Today is a 5 -- If you open your mouth, plan on chewing shoe leather. It won’t be possible to please everyone. You’d do better by offering a variety of resources. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Today is a 6 -- Deciding for yourself doesn’t happen today. You need a sidekick. Whether for errands, work or household chores, keep someone close at hand. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 5 -- Stick to the basics as much as possible. Adapt yesterday’s plan to today’s needs. Four or five people gather closely together in a leaderless group.

··· Thumbs down to Hilton for playing “Paint it Black” right before the Iowa-ISU dual... ··· So I watched girls shoot tinsel out of there noses this weekend... ··· To the people who broke into my car this weekend, have fun disc golfing... ··· To those of you complaining about almost getting hit by a bike, are you seriously complaining about not getting hit? I can arrange for you to be hit if you’d like. ··· Dear Iowans, it’s snow, it comes every year, learn how to drive! Just sayin’. ··· Do you think if I start walking around my apartment singing “Oompa loompa doompadee doo” she’ll get the hint?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 5 -- Although you’re ready to move ahead, others have reservations. Be sure they tell you what’s on their minds. Otherwise, you’re shooting in the dark.
