Leath’s first year at ISU president reviews goals, accomplishment By Danielle.Ferguson @iowastatedaily.com President Steven Leath’s instillation as the 15th president of Iowa State University may have taken place on Sept. 14, 2012, however he has been hard at work for far longer. His first year of work

here at ISU began Jan. 16, 2012, and has been one of many achievements and high objectives. “I am really glad I’m here,” Leath proudly stated about his newfound home. “I enjoy the university and the community. It was an easy community to move to. People were very welcoming and helpful.” Leath began with a bang, announcing that he had high hopes to bring the university from “already great” to “greater.” He expressed great

expectations and optimistic goals for the university in his installation address, “Land Grant, Excellence, Achievement, Trust, and Honor,” or LEATH. Delivering a top-notch education to any who desire it is a priority of Leath’s. He has done so by fighting for a freeze in mandatory fees for all students, as well as a freeze in resident tuition for the coming school year. Another element of the

Flu season upon U.S. By Katelynn.McCollough @iowastatedaily.com The flu season is in full swing as the Center of Disease Control reports that 47 states have confirmed widespread cases of influenza activity, with 3,710 influenza hospitalizations since Oct. 1, 2012. “Last year was a fairly mild year for flu; this year is more extreme,” said Steve Sullivan, spokesperson for Mary Greeley Medical Center. “We’re definitely seeing more people with flu symptoms and more people being admitted to the hospital with the flu.” Sullivan said 18 people were admitted to Mary Greeley with the flu in December and eight people have been admitted so far in January. Students, faculty and staff need to keep a close watch for any hint of flu symptoms. The influenza virus attacks the respiratory system,

Corrections: In Wednesday’s article about the Lied renovations, the caption on the photo incorrectly said Reid Youngdahl was in the photo, but the man in the photo is actually Kyle Etzel, a junior in business. Also in Wednesday’s paper, the photo of the apple on the Flavors page was incorrectly attributed to Claire Powell. It was actually a courtesy photo from ThinkStock. The Daily regrets the errors.

Clarification In Tuesday’s article and sidebar about renting, not every property management company in Ames was mentioned.

Pets

ISU students impact shelter Costs of owning a dog or cat, the first year

By Daniel.Bush @iowastatedaily.com The lifestyle of a college student involves constant on-the-go behavior. Throwing a pet into the mix could cause problems for the student, the pet and the Ames Animal Shelter if all the aspects of pet care are not considered. Lorna Lavender, shelter supervisor of the Ames Animal Shelter, said that students are a negative and positive impact on the shelter; it just depends on the situation and the student. “We don’t have data that points to students causing more animal problems in a community than anybody else,” Lavender said. “I do see more impulsiveness and emotional decision making with younger clients.” Does that mean all students are impulsive? No. It depends on the student and his or her actions with pets that determine if he or she is helping the community or not. Lavender proposed five questions for students to ask before getting a pet to see if they are ready for the responsibility: “Can you have it where you live? Can you, in the case of a dog, train it, spend time with it and change your lifestyle? [Are you willing to] learn and educate yourself about the animal? What are reasonable veterinarian costs and what can you afford? Is [a pet] in your budget?” Lavender asked. Another cost to consider is spaying and neutering. Erica Bauer, a registered veterinary technician and adopter of two cats from the Ames Animal Shelter, said that spaying and neutering your pets is one of the best things for health and elimination of unwanted animals. “From a health standpoint, spaying and neutering actually decreases the risk for cancer,” Bauer said. “It reduces the risk for mammary and uterine cancer in female dogs and testicular cancer in males.” Lavender agreed, “I think one of the most important things that we can do as pet-owners ... is to spay and neuter our pets so exponentially they don’t contrib-

ute to becoming 1,000 homeless pets out of that one.” Pets need constant care: food, time, attention, training, etc. The biggest factor is responsibility to the commitment. “Animals require a lifetime commitment,” Lavender said. “It is not the ones that are loved the most, it’s the ones that are understood and provided best for that are the happiest.” ISU students also provide the Ames Animal Shelter with volunteers. Around 40 to 70 people visit the shelter per day. About 40 of them are active student volunteers. “Shelter medicine students from the vet college, they are out here on a externship program every Friday to learn,”

Lavender said. About 20,000 cats and dogs have gone into the Ames Animal Shelter in the past 20 years, and the shelter has built up to a 90 percent adoption/return rate. “Public health students from the Vet school come out to learn and tour and talk about the impact of stray animals and how that can affect the health of the human population,” Lavender said. Ames Animal Shelter has found that the students of the community have helped the process at the shelter. “I’m kind of excited about continuing to work with the students in getting more humane responsible human-animal bonds from that pool of population,” Lavender said.

The Cyclones needed a hero Friday night, and Cucullu was it. With 34.6 seconds left in overtime, Cucullu toe-dragged the puck around a Bobcat defenseman and sniped a shot top corner from the slot for a dramatic 2-1 win. The junior forward also tallied an assist in Saturday night’s disappointing 8-5 loss to Ohio, but the speedy and consciencious Cucullu was not on the ice for any of the goals against. Iowa State hits the road this weekend to take on long-time league rival Illinois. The Cyclones return for a home-andhome series against instate rival Iowa Jan. 25 in Ames and Jan. 27 in Cedar Rapids.

mand for [the flu vaccine], and we are still able to meet that demand. We are encouraging people, if they haven’t had the immunization yet, to come in and get that.” Thielen reported that more than 100 flu vaccines given over the course of three business days as of Tuesday. Sullivan said that he had not heard of any flu vaccine shortages in the “immediate Ames area.” Thielen, Mary Greeley and Homeward Public Health on Duff Avenue all still offer the influenza vaccine injection. The FluMist intranasal vaccine is still available at Thielen but no longer available at Homeward. The CDC reported on Friday that this season’s flu vaccine reduces the chance of contracting the flu by up to 60 percent. “Maintain your cleanliness when you’re in contact with other people and with surfaces that they might have been touching,” Meyer said, who explained the flu virus can stay active on surfaces for a short time. “We all touch our faces eventually. ... That is really how you spread that contact,” Meyer said. Washing your hands frequently, covering your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze, and staying home when you are sick can also aid in keeping the spread of the flu low.

to keep the mission of equal opportunity and diversity initiatives thriving. The process of adding 700 more beds to Frederickson Court is underway with 200 beds scheduled to be completed by Fall 2013 to assist with the flare-up of students as well. The 15th president’s first year contained the drive to raise a great amount of money for student support as well. “We had a $100 million fund-raising goal overall from July to July. Our first six months were over $65 million, so we’re well ahead of schedule,” Leath commented. “People have a great love and affection for the university. The student support goal of raising $150 million is being very well received. We’re pretty excited about it.” Faculty Senate President Suzanne Hendrich feels that

money and preparing for the future. “Get into the habit of putting money away,” says Ramon Reyes, an Ames Wells Fargo financial advisor. Savings accounts rarely have big interest rates, but they, along with other similar accounts, are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for up to $250,000. Reyes also recommended using the envelope system as a budget, in which money is divided into major spending categories. When the envelope for the category is emptied, the user is forced to quit spending. “Every time I spend money I think… is it worth it?...am I accounting for the opportunity cost of this money?” Kimm said. A user is forced through this thought process by paying in cash instead of having to swipe a card. Reyes said that studies have proven that spenders will think harder about spending money when they use cash as opposed to simply swiping a card. “It’s very hard for me to spend cash,” Kimm said. Besides saving money and budgeting what the user will spend, there are other options as to how money can be handled. It can, for example, be put in the stock market, an option which can actually favor younger investors. “We’re young. If we lose a little bit, we’ve got some time to make it back,” Kimm said.

Leath will be a great leader for Iowa State. “I was really impressed with his vision from his instillation address,” Hendrich said. “It seems to me that he is following through on what he intended to happen and that he is working well with the other administrators who are here. He’s shown a directness and honesty with sorting through things.” As the president of a major university, Leath’s schedule is filled to the brim. He puts in early mornings and late nights, but still enjoys cheering on Cyclone athletics and other ISU programs. He also delights in an occasional coffee from the Union or some soup from the Hub when he is around campus. “We really want to get in a situation between what we do in terms of management and what we do with the leg-

The stock market is not for everyone, however. “If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could actually end up spending more money,” Reyes said, especially in online trade. Knowing what you’re investing in is critical, especially knowing exactly what is being paid for (i.e. commission rates). There is also a mutual fund option, in which one purchases a pool of stock. Therefore, if a particularly volatile stock underperforms, the rest helps make up for it. No matter what is put into the stock market, it is important to remember that it is cyclical.

islature; also, what we can do in management and keeping costs down and what our alumni and fans can do with support so we don’t have to raise tuition,” Leath said.

“You really want to have a longterm focus,” Reyes said. However, if the user fully understands the way the stock market works, there’s no reason to be afraid . “There’s a lot of money to be made in the upswing of this recession,” Kimm said. Other options include putting money into a 401K and using credit cards wisely, perhaps to build a good credit score. “Whether we like it or not, money makes the world go round.” Kimm said. “I have goals. … I have a dream house, I have a dream car, and I’m actively trying to make sure that I can, in some respects, live the dream.”

“We’re really trying. That will be a big push this year so we won’t have to raise tuition for a little while; that would be really great.” As Leath begins his second

year with Iowa State, he looks forward to new challenges. “I probably have not worked harder at any other job, but not enjoyed any job more, either.”

Obama announces plans for gun law changes By Katelynn McCollough @iowastatedaily.com President Barack Obama released his plan titled, “Now is the Time,” to reduce gun violence and signed 23 executive actions toward the same goal in a speech on Wednesday. The plan focuses on four major points. These include: closing background check loopholes for purchasing guns, banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, making schools safer, and increasing access to mental health services. “We can’t put this off any longer,” Obama said as he began to outline the plan, which

was created through recommendations by Vice President Joe Biden and Obama’s Cabinet. The proposed actions will now make their way to Congress. Steffen Schmidt, ISU professor of political science, believes that Obama will choose to have the plan first introduced in the Democraticallycontrolled Senate where he will “have a friendlier audience.” Schmidt said that it “looks a little iffy” on whether or not the proposed plan will make it all the way through Congress. “The Republicans in the House are not looking too enthusiastic about all of the proposed gun laws,” Schmidt

explained. President Bill Clinton previously signed into law the Federal Assault Weapons Ban in 1994, which banned the civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms. The ban was allowed to expire in 2004. “We can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale,” Obama said in his speech. Obama finished the speech by signing 23 executive actions, which have the full force of law. “Those [executive actions] are perfectly legal and constitutional,” Schmidt said, but

explained that a person can choose to sue the federal government if they do not agree with the actions. The National Rifle Association responded to the proposed plan by saying that they “look forward to working with Congress on a bipartisan basis to find real solutions to protecting America’s most valuable asset — our children.” The NRA also stated that “attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.”

Photo courtesy of CNN Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama unveil new gun proposals on Wednesday at the White House.

23 Executive Actions The President is announcing that he and the administration will: 1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system. 2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. 3. Improve incentives for states to share data with the background check system. 4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of people prohibited from having guns to make sure dangerous people don’t slip through the cracks. 5. Propose giving law enforcement ability to run full a background check on an individual before returning a seized gun. 6. Publish a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers. 7. Launch a safe and responsible gun ownership campaign. 8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission). 9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. 10. Release Department of Justice reports analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it available to law enforcement. 11. Nominate an ATF director.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations. 13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime. 14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence. 15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies. 16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. 17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law-enforcement authorities. 18. Provide incentives for schools to hire resource officers. 19. Develop model emergency-response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education. 20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental-health services that Medicaid plans must cover. 21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within American Care Act exchanges. 22. Commit to finalizing mental-health-parity regulations. 23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Kathleen Sebelius and Arne Duncan on mental health. Source: White House

Use caution, do not panic about flu bug It’s back — in hallways, bathrooms, classrooms, gyms, cafeterias and just about every other place in America. And, it’s probably going to kill you. Just kidding; it probably won’t, unless you are really young or old, or you have a weak immune system. But the flu will make you sick, like it could every other year. Yet every “flu season”, health organizations and many media organizations hoot and holler about “the flu epidemic” and put fear in the hearts of every Joe and Jill Schmo in America. With that said, health organizations and media organizations should disseminate important flu-related information to the public. In fact, the Daily is running a flu story today in order to inform the public of important campus-related information regarding the flu. However, it often seems as if some media organizations spread flu-related information in a sensationalized way. For instance, a Daily Beast headline on Google read “A Bad Flu Season, and Worse to Come.” However, the article explicitly stated, “This year influenza looks serious, but it’s still nothing like what a really lethal influenza season can be.” Of course, a headline stating, “Flu Season Not History’s Worst” is not nearly as eye-catching as the former headline. Additionally, quite a few media outlets have related this year’s flu epidemic to the worst flu pandemics in history. The problem is that an epidemic and a pandemic differ drastically in severity. According to WebMD, an example of an epidemic is the severe acute respiratory syndrome epidemic that occurred in 2002 and 2003, which killed about 800 people. An example of a pandemic is HIV/AIDS, which kills almost 2 million people on average each year. Some media organizations compare the effects of epidemics to those of pandemics, which is like comparing the bite of a domestic cat to that of a lion. Although they are similar, one is much worse than the other and the lesser one must become much larger in scale for a proper comparison. Furthermore, many media organizations focus on flu-related mortalities. For instance, an NBCNews article reported six deaths have occurred from flu-related causes in San Diego. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated 3,140,069 people lived in San Diego in 2011, meaning if the population is similar now, .000019 percent of San Diego’s population has died from the flu this year. The news article did not mention that small percentage. The CDC does not track flu-related deaths, but it does estimate the number of people who die from flu-related causes each year. From the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 season, the CDC’s estimated flu-related deaths ranged from 3,000 to 49,000. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are more than 315 million people living in the United States. Using the CDC’s estimates, anywhere from .000095 percent to .0016 percent of people in the United States died from flu-related causes from the 19761977 season to the 2006-2007 season. What all these numbers and percentages say is that the flu does kill Americans, but it does not kill nearly as many as some media organizations may cause the public to worry. People should know about the flu and how to prevent it. However, it is equally important for them to know they aren’t destined to die from it this season. When it comes to the flu and other infectious diseases, common sense goes a long way. Wash your hands, cover your cough, avoid high populated areas and remember this flu season will be over soon. Do all that and before you know it, the next flu season will be here, wreaking havoc and making us think we’re one step closer to the zombie apocalypse.

File photo: Katelynn McCollough/Iowa State Daily U.S. Rep. Steve King speaks in Ames on May 23, 2012. King was elected as representative of Iowa’s 4th District in November 2012 and, like others running for office, received a portion of his funding from sources outside of his potential district, including out-of-state donations.

Who is being represented? H

aving a new representative in Congress is always an adjustment. Two weeks ago, when the 113th Congress began its first session, Ames, along with northern and northwestern Iowa, became the constituents not of the level-headed Tom Latham, but of a man who has a reputation as something of a radical, Steve King. Representation in a republic the size of the United States is essential, and we have a rich heritage of it. Indeed, the nature and definition of representation was a key part of the debates on the Constitution. Speakers at the Constitutional Convention in 1787, the Constitution’s proponents the Federalists, and its opponents the Anti-Federalists all agreed: In the words of the minority at Pennsylvania’s convention, who voted against ratification, representatives ought “to possess the same interests, feelings, opinions and views, which the people themselves would possess, were they all assembled.” For all the quotations of the founding generation that permeate politics, if one thing has remained unchanged since 1787-1788, it is the definition of representation. Yet clarion calls and general derision against the buying of politicians or electoral votes through “special interest” political action committees or outof-state campaign donations often sound out in the cacophony of political discourse. For example, two weeks after this year’s elections, The New York Times argued that, in state judicial elections, “The dominant role played by special-interest money … has severely weakened the principle of fair and impartial courts.” After a shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., The New York Times editorialized on the National Rifle Association, “Businesses and special-interest groups often cloak their profit motives in the garb of constitutional rights — think Big Tobacco and its opposition to restrictions on smoking in public places and bold warnings on cigarette packages.” Every citizen ought to have such concerns. One of the ways in which we can measure how much heed a candidate might pay his or her constituents, if elected, is the source of his campaign money. The 2012 election for our Congressional district pitted King for the Republicans against Christie Vilsack for the Democrats. Both candidates had their faults but, if there is a carpetbagger in the race, Vilsack is it. The spreadsheets I compiled will be posted online, but a summary of the data is as follows. King received a total of $2,738,250 in itemized donations. Individuals contributed $1,903,185 of that figure, or 69.5 percent of the total. Party committees contributed $32,656, or 1.2 percent of the total. Other committees (PACs, etc.) contributed $802,409, or 29.3

By Michael.Belding @iowastatedaily.com percent of the total. Overall, 51.3 percent of King’s itemized campaign contributions came from out-ofstate sources. His campaign received 16 percent of its money from in-state sources he did not represent in his old district or would not represent in his new one, and 32.7 percent of its money came from sources located in areas he either had represented in the past or would be charged with representing should he have won the election. Vilsack received a total of $2,583,241 in itemized donations. Individuals contributed $2,031,179, or 78.6 percent of the total. Party committees contributed $15,382, or 0.60 percent of the total. Other committees (PACs, etc.) contributed $536,680, or 20.8 percent of the total. It is interesting to note that, although 78.6 percent of itemized contributions to Vilsack came from individuals, residents of other states made 59.9 percent of her individual contributions, or 47.1 percent — the largest by far — of total contributions. Overall, 66.8 percent of Vilsack’s itemized campaign contributions came from out-ofstate sources. Her campaign received 21.9 percent of its money from in-state sources King did not represent or that Vilsack would not represent if elected, and 11.3 percent of Vilsack’s itemized campaign money came from sources located in areas either King had represented in the past or would represent if victorious. When so much campaign money is from sources outside the constituency, is it possible for an officeholder to represent the combination of people, interests, and perspectives swirling around in that constituency? Or is the representative merely a placeholder for a national party ideology? Such questions as these are among those that voters should ask themselves. If the people truly are to hold their representatives accountable and capture the essence of a republican government, they must be able to choose from a field of representatives who receive only 11.3 percent — or even 32.7 percent — of their campaign funding from the people who live in the place they will represent.

Learn language for growth, health I

am sure that many of you have read or heard a multitude of reasons why learning another language is a good idea, and I’m here to reiterate this point and offer some practical benefits of doing so. I have to admit that I do love learning languages; this pushed me to study abroad in Germany in high school and to pursue learning foreign languages in college. I wish I could say I was truly multilingual, but I cannot. Sadly, I hardly remember the Spanish and French I learned in high school, and when I try to read Russian, I probably still sound like a kindergartner trying to sound the words out. Yet despite my somewhat limited knowledge of these languages, I was surprised and grateful that I had learned them when I traveled in Berlin this summer. I am fairly fluent in German, so I was not nervous about living in the country for a month, but I had not expected to hear or use Spanish, French or Russian, all of which I used throughout my trip abroad. The necessity of learning another lan-

King, writer for NPR, explored the views of one author, Jared Diamond, on bilingualism and multilingualism and some of the cognitive benefits language learning can offer. Her story “Jared Diamond, A New Guinea Campfire, And Why We Should Want To Speak Five Languages” reviews Jared Diamond’s writing and his stories about living in New Guinea, where more than 800 languages, not to be confused with dialects, are spoken in a population of about 6 million people. Here multilingualism is not only celebrated, but necessary

(i.e. for trade, negotiations, and even finding and communicating with a spouse). A practical point Diamond raises, which surprised me, is that being bilingual or multilingual can help lessen the chance of Alzheimer’s. Overall, learning another language presents a world of opportunities, and is necessary for broadening your worldview. So if you ever have the chance to learn another language or travel abroad, seize it — it may lead you places you couldn’t have imagined.

Track and field:

Former coach Steve Lynn passes away at age 61 Former ISU track and field coach Steve Lynn passed away Wednesday morning at Mary Greeley Medical Center, surrounded by family and friends, according to a news release. According to the release, Lynn sustained an injury at his home from a fall on Friday. Lynn was a monumental coach at Iowa State, where he dedicated 30 years of his life — 14 as head coach and 16 as an assistant head coach. During his tenure, Iowa State won 15 Big Eight Conference track titles between 1981 and 1994. As the head coach of the Cyclones, Lynn’s teams won Big Eight indoor and outdoor titles in 1993 and an outdoor title in 1994. At the national indoor meet in 1997, Lynn’s team finished third. Lynn coached many of the greats that have passed through the school’s powerhouse track and field program. Such include NCAA 400-meter champion Danny Harris, who won three titles under Lynn, as well as Olympic bronze medalist Sunday Uti. Lynn was 61 years old when he passed and is survived by his wife, K’Lynn Kuehl Lynn, daughter Erica and son Scott. — By Daily staff

Sports Jargon: Major decision SPORT: Wrestling DEFINITION: When a wrestler wins by anywhere from eight to 14 points in a full seven-minute match. USE: Kyven Gadson tallied a last-second takedown of his opponent to win in a 14-6 major decision.

Anna Prins was sitting on the bench completely surprised, but not by the game her team had just won. After the senior center and ISU women’s basketball team defeated Alabama State, 86-47, as part of the Cyclone Challenge on Dec. 30, ISU coach Bill Fennelly walked to center court of Hilton Coliseum. Fennelly gave a short speech then went on to introduce Ryan De Hamer, Prins’ boyfriend, and brought him out to center court. De Hamer walked to the middle of the floor and asked Prins to join him on the court. De Hamer then got down on his knee, presented a ring and said, “Anna Prins, will you marry me?” She said yes, and Hilton Coliseum began to cheer. “I had no idea,” Prins said. “Ryan did a good job of playing it off even before that because we would have conversations about it because we’ve been dating for so long. He was kind of playing it off like he wasn’t totally thinking about it yet, so I was getting annoyed and he had the ring the whole time.” It took Prins and De Hamer three-and-a-half years to reach that moment in front of 7,013 ISU fans on Dec. 30, 2012.

A budding relationship Prins arrived for her first semester at Iowa State in the fall of 2009. As Prins was preparing for the start of basketball season, little did she know, De Hamer was doing the same. De Hamer was preparing for his first semester at Iowa State after spending the previous two years playing baseball at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Kansas. After being forced to quit baseball due to an injury, De Hamer transferred to Iowa State in 2009 and planned to be part of the women’s basketball scout team. Although an eventual scheduling conflict kept De Hamer from officially joining the scout team, he still took time to send well-wishes to the players, Prins in particular. “I was kind of like, ‘Hey, just wanted to let you know: Have a good year and good luck,’” De Hamer said. “And obviously athletes are pretty busy, so I figured she would probably read it and go about her day. I didn’t really have any intention and lo and behold, she did respond.” Little by little, the two started talking more, which led to a first date. About three-and-a-half years later, Prins remembers how excited she was to get the Facebook message from De Hamer. Even before they began dating, Prins said she felt De Hamer was interested in knowing her as a person instead of as a basketball player, which felt refreshing. “Ryan was my first boyfriend, and it was kind of exciting at first; just everything was new,” Prins said. “He’s really helped me through the ups and downs of my life, especially the basketball part.”

Life as a student-athlete in a relationship As a former baseball player, De Hamer has not only made the connection with Prins on a personal level, he has been able to understand the daily struggles of being a collegiate athlete. “He kind of knew what it was like to play a college sport and try to balance everything,” Prins said. “Just to have that outlet to be able to hang out with him when I needed to get away from everything really helped me a lot.” Having gone through it to an extent, De Hamer understood from the beginning what commitment Prins would need to give to basketball for lifting, practice, travel and, on top of it all, schoolwork. De Hamer feels that the similarity in what he went through is nice to have when Prins seems to be going through a rough patch. “A lot of our conversations sprouted from, even to this day, about how not everybody understands the pressure and the time someone goes through in college athletics,” De Hamer said. “It was something that kind of calms her down.”

Photo courtesy of Athletics Department/Wesley Winterink Ryan De Hamer proposes to Anna Prins after the Cyclones’ win against Alabama on Dec. 30, 2012 at Hilton Coliseum. Prins met De Hamer while working with the women’s basketball scout team.

The big day After De Hamer decided Prins was the person he wanted to marry, he talked with her father, Ardell Prins, after Iowa State’s game against Iowa this season. De Hamer told only his parents and Prins’ parents about his idea of proposing to Anna. It was then that De Hamer contacted Fennelly and informed him of his idea. “[De Hamer] came in and just presented the plan and asked if we could do it,” Fennelly said. “I thought it was a great idea [and I was] honored to be a part of it, especially because the basketball family is so close to Anna and her family was in town watching the tournament.” One thing De Hamer stressed to Fennelly was that his proposal plan was not about publicity. “Basically since we started dating, the people that surround us have always been Iowa State people, not just random friends,” De Hamer said. “The main focus I wanted to have was her family there, my family there and then all of the community we have kind of grown to know the last three-and-a-half years we’ve been dating.” After several weeks of planning the proposal, both families were in town and the day finally came. De Hamer left with four minutes left in the game,

went to the outer concourse of Hilton Coliseum and walked around trying to calm his nerves. “I tried to make sure I wasn’t freaking out too much,” De Hamer said with a laugh. “I was nervous, mostly because it was in front of people, but it was just because I have never been more excited or happy to do anything in my whole life.” Although no definite wedding date has been set, Prins said it is on her mind from time to time. However, she is focused on basketball season. “We’ve thought about probably the summer of 2014 but we haven’t started planning anything because I need to finish the season first,” Prins said. “There’s always Pinterest. I look on there for ideas every once in a while, but I know my first priority is on the season. We have plenty of time to plan.” For Fennelly, who held the ring in his pocket throughout the game that night, this was the first time in his coaching career that one of his players had been proposed to on court and was “one of the greatest moments of my career.” “He set the bar pretty high for everybody else,” Fennelly said. “I said to the kids after the game, as a coach, you’re so focused on winning games and that moment I think was one of those moments that trumped everything. It was one of those moments that everyone will remember.”

Wrestling

Gadson fights fear, finds success By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com

Every time Kyven Gadson steps out on the mat, he fears the worst. En route to a 15-2 record and a No. 9 ranking at 197 pounds by Intermat, Gadson has had a fear of re-injuring his shoulder with the possibility of missing the NCAA tournament in March. “Having three shoulder surgeries and not being able to wrestle that much, it kind of put everything in perspective,” Gadson said. “I’m still trying to get over that fear and whatnot.” Of the five Big 12 Wrestler of the Week awards that have been awarded this season, Gadson has earned two of them with the most recent one a result of his 3-1 sudden victory decision against then-No. 7 Micah Burak of Penn last Sunday. The only other wrestler to win the award this season is Oklahoma’s Kendric Maple, who has won it three times. Gadson has been an integral part of the change in attitude on the team, which has won four of its last five dual meets. That only loss came to

No room to breathe Through Kyven Gadson’s return to the mat, ISU coach Kevin Jackson has found ways to motivate him and ease his concerns. “Relax, breathe and wrestle — that’s one thing he always says to us,” Gadson said. “I’m relaxing for the most part, I’m just not breathing. I’m wrestling real tense.”

File photo: Huiling Wu/Iowa State Daily Iowa State’s Kyven Gadson grapples with University of Iowa’s Nathan Borak during their 197-pound match at the meet Dec. 1, 2012 at CarverHawkeye Arena. Gadson has dealt with several injuries during his career.

Oklahoma in a 19-15 dual on Jan. 5. “We’re riding when we need to ride, we’re getting away when we need to get away, but the attitude in which we’re competing and the intensity in which we’re competing was the most impressive for me for these guys,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson. “I think that we’ve been pretty consistent with that since the Iowa match.”

It was in that 32-3 loss to Iowa on Dec. 1 where Gadson tallied the sole victory for the Cyclones (4-3, 0-1 Big 12). In that match, Gadson wrestled with more hesitation in one of his first matches since his senior year of high school. Having always been considered a leader in the wrestling room, Gadson’s influence was far from latent.

“His attitude to the sport and everything that he feels is real infectious in the room,” said 125-pounder Ryak Finch. “You can just tell, I don’t know if I’ve ever met anyone who wants to win like Kyven wants to win right now.” Each match Gadson has wrestled has helped his confidence and deterred the fears and doubts, even though not completely. “He’s still feeling it out,” Jackson said. “He knows he’s going to win, he wrestles to win, he’s going to go out there and he’s going to win, but for a wrestler of his caliber, he can dominate.”

By Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com Georges Niang hit the shot and pointed to the crowd. With 11.6 seconds remaining, ISU guard Will Clyburn drove to the right side, spun and found an open Georges Niang right under the basket. Niang laid the shot in with 2.5 seconds to lift Iowa State (12-4, 2-1 Big 12) to a two-point victory against West Virginia (8-8, 2-2), 69-67 on Wednesday. The Mountaineers jumped out to a 7-0 lead as the Cyclones went scoreless with four turnovers in the first 4:44 of the game on 0-of-4 shooting. Overall the Cyclones went 10-of-30 shooting the first half, but entered halftime leading the Mountaineers, 29-26. “We were getting a lot of good open looks, it just wasn’t falling,” said forward Melvin Ejim. “I think we were executing very well [and] we were getting the shots we wanted, but it just wasn’t dropping.” Following halftime, Iowa State quickly built its lead with an 18-4 run in the first 7:30 out of the break. The Cyclones seldom missed during the run, going 8-of-12 from the field to start the half. “We tried to stretch them out a little bit,” said ISU coach Fred Hoiberg of the second half. “I thought our flow was really good, it was much better to start the second half than it was to start the game.” The Cyclones were led by forward Melvin Ejim who picked up his seventh double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 rebounds. Guard Korie Lucious scored another 15 points and dished out eight assists. Iowa State’s second half lead reached 18 points, but West Virginia bounced back with a late run of its own behind nine second-half 3s, to tie the game at 67-67 late. And then, Niang hit the game-winner with 2.5 seconds.

Palo ready to move on Bubu Palo is ready to focus on basketball. After charges against Palo and Spencer Cruise, stemming from an incident on May 18, 2012, were dropped Monday, Palo has officially made his return to the ISU men’s basketball team. Palo had been suspended indefinitely until the legal issue was resolved, but he was reinstated by the ISU athletic department Monday. “It’s a great relief,” Palo said. “It was one of the things that would keep me up, the hope of rejoining my teammates and getting back on that basketball court.” “To just have normalcy in my life and to be able to have basketball back is really something I’m excited about.” Palo has begun working out again with the team and hopes to return to the court Jan. 23 against Texas Tech. Last season Palo averaged 4.0 points in 13.8 minutes per game.

“I didn’t think [Clyburn] saw Georges at first, but then he made a heck of a play to find Georges in there all by himself,” Hoiberg said. “Then Georges finished and ran into Cyclone Alley and didn’t run back — made me a little nervous.”

2013 will be a big year for Sharika “Soal” Sawer. After years of a growing fanbase for her former band and current solo project, Ladysoal, Sawer will be featured on the new MySpace Pick Me Project, which is headed by Justin Timberlake. Later in the spring, Sawer will also be making an appearance on national television, and will spend most of her year in Los Angeles. Though Sawer will be away from Ames for a majority of this year, she will always remember her hometown. “I’m definitely living my dream,” Sawer said. “The fact that I just got back from L.A. and I just got done filming the Justin Timberlake project, that’s just a manifestation come true.” The Pick Me Project is part of Timberlake’s launch of the new MySpace, which is aimed to feature artists already breaking into the entertainment industry. Through word of mouth, Sawer was selected as one of the 1,200 featured artists in Timberlake’s project. The featured members include musicians, actors, producers and more, and Sawer estimated that she is one of 500 musicians in the project. “I’m pretty honored to be one of the 1,200 out of a million actresses and singers,” Sawer said. “It’s not just being his featured artist and having that turn into a great networking thing for me. It’s just to be able to say I was part of a Justin Timberlake project, I could die happy. That’s any artist’s ultimate dream, and I’m just excited for all the doors it will open for me.” Sawer’s video on the site will be dropping soon, and Sawer expects a new wave of fans to come in. But Sawer wants Ames fans to know that she will not be leaving her hometown any time soon. “I still live here, my son’s still here, my friends are still here, I still have a lot of professional relationships here,” Sawer said. “But I don’t know how much I’ll be playing, I don’t know how much time I’ll have. I don’t really know what my involvement is going to be.” While Sawer said she has been impacted by the local scene, other members of the Ames music community feel the same way about her. Nate Logsdon, frontman of Mumford’s, said he and Sharika “go back pretty far,” as he used to play guitar in her band, Ladysoal. Logsdon said Sharika’s drive makes her stand out in the crowd at any performance. “She works really hard. She gets out there a lot, online and throughout Iowa, playing shows. She’s a pretty memorable presence and a very dynamic performer,” Logsdon said. “She’s really driven, she’s really ambitious and she has a clear vision of what she wants to do. ... She really keeps me on my toes, as a performer. Just seeing her makes me want to put on a good show too.” Bryon Dudley, owner of the local recording studio The Spacement, said he remembers first meeting Sharika when she recorded her first Ladysoal album in his studio. Dudley said her attention to vocals makes her a memorable performer. “She has brought a focus to vocals, because she’s an incredible singer. And I think she is also a very passionate performer,” Dudley said. “Seeing her rage up on that stage is something I think a lot of performers find very inspiring.”

Though Sawer said she is enjoying her new recognition, she wants fans to take away something more important. “I went [to L.A.] and talked about what my mission is and for me, it’s not just about being an artist,” Sawer said. “People can get really low, and I think when people get hurt, they take that as who they are. I just want people to know that it has nothing to do with who you are. Everybody hurts. “I think the world needs to know that you don’t have to have a secret personality trait to be a superstar and be successful and follow your dreams. You just have to make the decision to do it, and I want to be living proof of that. ... I have long since accepted that I’m an artist with an extraordinary amount of talent, and I’m very powerful in that way. I think this is the first year I’ve actually let myself go after things I should be going after.” As Sawer prepares for her year in L.A., she said Ames fans and friends can help her by continuing to be supportive of the new MySpace project, and support her when she appears on television in the spring. “It’s been a great ride,” Sawer said. “I love you guys. I really feel the love. Thank you for letting me express myself. Thank you for supporting me.”

A look back at Sharika’s Ames career While she has been an Ames resident since the age of 4, here is a look at what Sharika picked as the top moments in her Ames music career.

2008

She met Nate Logsdon.

“I’ve known him for a long time, but I first became his friend when it was RAGBRAI. I ventured over to Welch and picked up this guitar and started playing. And this guy with a beard came up to me and said ‘I run a space, you should come do a show some time’ and I said ‘Let’s be best friends.’... It just kind of became a meeting of the minds.”

2009

2010

Sharika performed for the first time since her son was born.

“I came back with a vengeance. I had my first show as a mom at The Space May 24, 2010. A lot of people came; it was great.”

2011

Ladysoal released three music videos, “Sunshine,” “That Girl” and “You.”

The band is featured for the first time on the cover of the Ames Tribune’s “Facets” and “Curve Magazine.” “2011 was crazy.”

Went solo

2012

“My band just started doing really well. We were playing at all the venues, I started builiding more relationships, I got to play 80/35. I was all over the place.”

Her son, Jacob, was born.

Shakespeare’s play, “Much Ado About Nothing,” inspired recent integrated studio arts graduate Bri Baltes to direct and produce an adaptation of the perfomance. In the summer of 2011, Baltes took English 395, which examines course disciplines while in London. “I saw two different productions of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ while I was there, and so I bought the play while I was in London because I loved it so much and read it many times and decided to cut it into a one act [play],” Baltes said. Baltes has cut the two-and-a-half hour play down to 45 minutes, cutting out side plots and things unnecessary to the main narrative of the piece. By combining the lines of some characters and rolling their attributes all into one, Baltes was able to condense the play. One major change that cannot go unnoticed about her adaptation is that she has changed the part of Leonato, another character’s father, to be played by a woman. Baltes said she is changing the gender of the character in order to combine the character and his wife in the play, Leonata. Though Baltes has graduated, she minored in performing arts and wanted the chance to direct a play and work with her fellow performing arts students one last time before she left. Another reason why Baltes decided to direct her adaptation was to “give [the performers] extra time to be extra prepared.” The performance of Baltes’ adaptation has not only been beneficial to her, but to students in the play. Lisa Robinson, junior in English, performs the role of Leonata, and explained that acting in a

play can bring greater insight into the mind of the playwright and what they are trying to get across. “When you get to really dig into the line and figure out what this person is trying to say, I think it just gives you a greater understanding of what the playwright is trying to accomplish,” Robinson said. Gaining experience in the field is helpful to any student, and Drew McCubbin, senior in performing arts, said being able to put Shakespeare on your resume looks very good. Baltes’ production is designed to be simple and will be held on the top floor of the Design Building, where the set makes use of the architectural structures found in the corner of the building. The backdrop is interactive and is made of a bulletin board comprised of sticky notes. Though this is Baltes’ first time directing, she said she wanted to have the experience before she left. “I’ve never directed before, and I kind of wanted to just plunge into a project,” Baltes said. “It’s kind of my baby.”

long at Iowa State?

By CJ Eilers Ames247 Writer

cyclo spot ne light

Nick Prenger, senior in music education, is a baritone in the Iowa State Singers and will be one of two beggars in the 48th Madrigal Dinner on Jan. 18 and 19. He will be graduating from the music education program in December and is currently planning for his student teaching semester this fall.

As a beggar for the Madrigal Dinner, what is your role?

Well basically my role is to go around to the people who have bought tickets and sit at the table for food or money or silverware. I don’t go away hungry. Normally I don’t eat the day of, ‘cause I’ll get plates of food. It’s ridiculous.

Nick Prenger

Is this your first time playing a beggar for the Madrigal Dinner?

No, this year will be my third year doing this role. I love doing this role, absolutely love it. Mainly because I don’t have to wear tights.

The Madrigal Dinner is in its 48th year. What do you think has made it last for so

Well I think what has to do with its popularity is that it is so much fun. We have people that come back year after year, even if their kids aren’t involved in the show. Going along with that is we have great donors that come and support us as well.

If you had to pick your favorite part of the Madrigal Dinner, what would it be? I would probably have to say the theater, as well as our king is part of the faculty and he throws those oneliners. They are the same every year, but they’re funny, they are great.

As you are a senior in music and graduating in December, what are your plans for student teaching? Well, I have put in my two student teaching placements. I would like to do my middle school and high school in the same district. My first choice was Johnston, because it’s close to home and I really like the directors they have there. My second choice is Indianola because they have a great up-and-coming music program there.

Movie: ‘Zero DarkThirty’

By Sam Abrahms

By Levi Castle

By Nick Hamden

Since their beginning days in Columbus, Ohio, duo Tyler Joseph (lead vocals, piano, etc.) and Josh Dun (drums) have netted an impressive following with their stimulating medley of schizoid pop. “Vessel” is their recently released debut studio album. Their blend of dark, and often self-destructive, lyrics pair distinctively with their buoyant rhythms, making for an enigmatic plot. “Fake You Out” is a wobbling synth dream complete that might be their best effort to date. The synths are chaotic and dizzying, but hey, this is schizoid pop. The repetitious chorus crashes down into threats, “And I’ll fall/And I’ll break/ And I’ll fake/All I wanna/And I’ll fall down/And I’ll break down/And I’ll fake you out/All I wanna.” The vocals on bookend “Truce” leave a bittersweet residue as Joseph concludes, “Stay alive, stay alive for me/You will die, but now your life is free/Take pride in what is sure to die.” Their frenzied complexity could easily be their downfall. Once you think you’ve finally have these guys pegged, they’ll throw you for a loop.

To begin, this phone has a very durable (and yet boring) look to it. The bezel surrounding the 800x480 4.3-inch screen is pretty large, especially on the top and bottom where it nears an inch of unused space. I can tell that the phone is very well built, so depending on how careful you are and how much you like your phone to look pretty, it could be an even trade. This is a Windows Phone 8. Unfortunately, I am pretty unsatisfied and unimpressed with the presentation. The mobile Windows operating system has odd menus, limited options and hardly any third-party support. I know it’s new to the game and will get better, but I’m telling it like it is right now. I do enjoy how apps open and close; they swoosh in and do flips while they open. It is a very smooth operating system, just uninteresting. Apps work well on the phone but are limited by the low-res screen. The app store is limited, but that’s obviously a problem with the OS and not the phone itself.

Possibly the biggest news story over the last decade has been the search for Osama bin Laden. It is no wonder that so soon after his death, there is a movie showing how it all went down. Jessica Chastain plays Maya, a CIA operative who has been working on Al-Qaeda intelligence her entire career. She is sent to Pakistan to witness torture and false lead after false lead. But when she gets a hunch after most prisoners recognize a specific name, she believes he is a courier directly linked to Bin Laden. The next several years are spent trying to prove that her hunch has some backbone to it. When watching Zero Dark I couldn’t help but ponder a few questions: Just how accurate are the details on the screen? If they are accurate, how did Kathryn Bigelow gain access to this data? Just what has been left out, and what has been altered? Despite not trusting the authenticity of the material, the movie itself I found to be captivating. Sure, it had its boring parts, but the film did a great job of bringing up moral issues without forcing a specific view point.
