By Maia.Zewert @iowastatedaily.com On tours of Iowa State’s campus, it is sometimes mentioned that students could get along without a laptop, due to the abundance of computer labs available on campus. Janelle Blanco, senior in early childhood development and ambassador for the College of Human Sciences, would like to make an amendment to that statement after going without a laptop due to a virus that crashed her computer. “Computer labs are helpful for
shorter assignments and printing, but only in addition to laptops,” Blanco said. “I don’t think anyone could go for four years without a personal computer, even if it’s just a desktop.” Blanco’s computer downloaded malware that tracked her keystrokes to learn her passwords. “I found out what happened when I got an email in my Iowa State account from myself,” Blanco said. She immediately borrowed a computer from her boyfriend and went through to change all her passwords. While reinstalling programs into her computer, she has either borrowed

and sometimes the labs don’t have the newest software that I need,” Velazquez said. To make due, Velazquez managed to convert his gaming desktop as a feasible substitute for his personal computer so he could get work done at home. However, this came with its own set of distractions. “I knew that wasn’t the purpose of the desktop, so it sometimes lead to procrastination,” Velazquez said.

According to the IT page [http:// www.it.iastate.edu/labsdb/] there are more than 50 computer labs available for student use. However, sometimes student schedules do not allow for ample work time. Edwin Martinez Velazquez, senior in computer engineering, went without a laptop during the spring semester of last year. “The [computer engineering] program is a lot of group projects,

The online system failure experienced by the university, just days before classes began, has made many wonder how secure their personal information is under the university’s care. On Jan. 10, a key storage device for university servers crashed. Senior systems analyst Mike Lohrbach described the event as a hardware failure that IT Services worked to resolve as quickly as possible.
“Any time any service goes down, it’s very bad,” Lohrbach said. “With the way that many services are built, there are dependencies. A lot of systems are interconnected and they build off of each other.” Lohrbach explained that while there may be one system that is used to receive data, there may be other servers behind the scenes that actually provide the data to that system. “Any time you lose a major underlying component to that system and it affects
multiple systems, obviously it can be very impactful,” Lohrbach said. Lohrbach admitted that although these systems are designed to eliminate or reduce the possibility of crashes, there are some situations where something unexpected happens. “With our job, obviously we have a mission to bring everything back as fast as possible,” Lohrbach explained. Server failures like this
Rapid growth propels club to top By Paul.Ehrsam @iowastatedaily.com The ISU chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is quickly becoming one of the largest student organizations at Iowa State. “It demonstrates the caliber of students we have here at the University and that we are willing to effect change,” said Jon Ellis, freshman in chemical engineering. The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws is a nonprofit political activist organization that advocates for the reform of the marijuana laws while also providing a voice for the
people about marijuana. Since it became a registered student organization last year, it has made its presence felt. “We really are a guiding light and are students who voice their activism on this campus and then stand up and produce quality work in academics, extracurricular activities and quality of living,” said Josh Montgomery, the chapter’s co-founder and sophomore in industrial engineering. Currently, the chapter is one of the top five largest student organizations on campus with 235 current members. At ClubFest on Wednesday, they

Ames, ISU Police Departments
Drop-out rate increases; ISU students requested to seek help beforehand
The information in the log comes from the ISU and City of Ames police departments’ records. All those accused of violating the law are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

By Daniel.Bush @iowastatedaily.com Some students consider dropping out because of anything from financial issues to academic difficulties and to family problems. ISU staff encourages those students to get support from their programs before making that decision. Drop out rates for freshman has increased from 12.3 percent in 2011 to 14.2 percent in 2012. The average dropout rate for ISU freshman is 15.2 percent. These numbers do change when it comes to transfer students, said Jonathan Compton, senior research analyst in records and registration. “It looks like that first year kind of drops a little bit for the transfer students,” Compton said. “There’s a term for that. It’s called ‘transfer shock.’ It’s kind of like when you get here, and you realize that the school you were at before, [and] things are a little bit different.” Transfer students’ drop rates have decreased from 19.6 percent to 17.8 percent from 2011 to 2012. A great success compared to the average 21 percent. On average, that number increases after the first year to 27.9 percent. “The university does a lot to help students stick it out and finish,” Compton said. Thomas Hill, senior vice president of student affairs, gave a list of programs that the university provides students to help to get them into programs. “You’ve got student athletes; they have a program, … scholarship programs, the Hixson program,” Hill said. “You’ve got a number of programs that really focus on retention. Where we really need to focus is in those
An individual reported damage to the finish of a vehicle at Lot 114 (reported at 9:45 p.m.).
Jan. 25 Officers assisted a 19-year-old male who had consumed too much alcohol at Buchanan Hall. The individual was transported to Mary Greeley Medical Center for treatment (reported at 1:05 a.m.). David Melendez, 23, 326 South Walnut Ave., Apt. 3, was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated and operating a motor vehicle without a driver license at Knapp Street and Lynn Avenue (reported at 1:03 a.m.). An individual reported the theft of items from a locker at Lied Recreation Center (reported at 9:47 a.m.). An individual reported receiving harassing communications at Parks Library (reported at 11:03 a.m.). Officers assisted an individual who had been struck in the head by construction equipment at Farmhouse Lane (reported at 1:11 p.m.). Officers initiated a drug-related investigation at the Armory (reported at 9:03 p.m.). An officer assisted an 18-yearold female who had consumed too much alcohol at the Alumni Center (reported at 9:58 p.m.). Jeremy Flaws, 19, of Carlisle, was cited for underage possession of alcohol. Corbin Clark, 19, of Carlisle, was arrested and charged with public intoxication at Lincoln Way and Union Drive (reported at 10:38 p.m.).
An individual reported the theft of a computer at Parks Library (reported at 6:19 p.m.).

areas where a student may not be affiliated with a specific program.” Laura Doering, registrar at records and registration, suggested MapWorks. “You are putting information in there that helps both your academic advisers and other support units at the university determine where you might need assistance,” Doering said. Variables big and small all have an effect on Iowa State’s drop outs: Iowa resident vs. non-Iowa resident, race, gender, high school rank and ACT composite score. High school rank and ACT composite score have a big impact. High school ranks of 80 percentile and higher have an average drop-out rate of 7.6 percent. “Learning communities are certainly a success story at Iowa State and have contributed positively to our retention and graduation efforts,” Doering said. “When you look at the learning community cohort against a comparable non-learning community cohort, you will see they will persist and graduated at a greater rate.” In 2011, only 10.2 percent of learning community students dropped out compared to 17.3 percent of non-learning community students. “It’s really important for students to recognize that it’s not that nobody wants to help [them],” Hill said. “We try to make it clear that the student is responsible for his or her education and that the assistance is here.” Hill knows that there are instances where students “fall through the cracks.” Not because of the university, but because the student decided not to get the help. “It’s really something we are paying attention to here at the university here … and if they need additional assistance,” Doering said. “We are here to help,” Hill said. “That’s what we’re all about.”

>>SECURITY.p1 may cause concern among students who have provided the university with confidential information, such as their student records, social security numbers and credit card information, but senior systems analyst Andy Weisskopf claims that students shouldn’t worry. “In our role as a university, the most important data that we have are the records on our students,” Weisskopf said. “We do everything that we can to keep it safe.” Weisskopf is the team leader for information security, a group dedicated to insuring that university data is protected. “We use a variety of different methods to make sure that we protect the university’s data,” Lohrbach said. These methods include locking various systems and data down so that only certain people have access to that information. Although the recent crash may have caused

Velazquez rented a laptop from the university for a computer science course, something Hannah Droogsma, sophomore in world languages and cultures, also tried when her laptop overheated the weekend before classes started this semester. Droogsma works two part-time jobs in addition to class, which doesn’t always allow her to get to use campus computers. “I would get off work at 11:30 at night, and by that time, I wouldn’t have time to go to the library and finish up online homework before it closed,” Droogsma said. Droogsma is not sure when she will be purchasing a new laptop, if at all. “My U-Bill comes first,” Droogsma said. “If there were a way I could do a long-term rental or pay off a laptop on my U-Bill right now, I would.” Until then, Droogsma has managed to make due using her phone as a way to stay in contact when she’s not around

some data to be inaccessible through various university services, like Access Plus, no confidential information was compromised. “The data itself was not exposed or available to anyone other than IT resources,” Lohrbach confirmed. “Even though we had a major storage failure that affected a lot of different systems, the data are still isolated with that system. “But there is certainly information that we don’t want getting out and that we work to protect,” Lohrbach clarified. Some methods used by IT Services to protect that information include testing and scanning the university’s systems to make sure that certain security rules are followed. According to ed.gov, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a federal law that keeps student education records private. The law applies to all schools that receive
In November 2012, the organization first garnered attention with their organization T-shirts when the Des Moines Register ran an article about the organization.

That’s not to say there has not been any good that’s come out of the situation. “Our society is so focused on technology, that going without my laptop has been a nice break,” Droogsma said. “I don’t have to be so connected and worry about what’s happening on Facebook. It’s been relaxing.” Blanco saw a rise in her productivity once she did not have a personal computer to rely on. “When you’re on a friend’s computer, you have a limited amount of time, so you have to get your stuff done. There’s not a lot of time for distractions,” Blanco said. While she’s managed to survive, Blanco wouldn’t wish for the same thing to happen to anyone. “I would want to dare everyone to go a week without computers,” Droogsma said. “No one could do it.”
funds under the U.S. Department of Education, like this university, and is one of the laws that Lohrbach and members of the security team keep in mind when handling confidential records. “Schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student’s education record,” federal law states. One of the most common security threats seen on college campuses is what both analysts refer to as a phishing attack; this is when a hacker sends an email to a university member falsely informing him or her that the campus is upgrading its webmail system and redirects the victim to an unprotected site to enter a user name and password. “There are hackers out there that harvest that information and then use that account, typically to send out other emails as that indi-

Since then, members from the group have been featured and interviewed on four different radio programs, including Iowa Public Radio. “Thinking back to then, I never would have imagined a year later having all of this media attention and the growth that we’ve had,” said Erin Furleigh, freshman in genetics and co-founder of the organization.

Weisskopf agreed that the biggest problem he deals with is attacks on the user. He explained that hackers try to trick the user into giving away their credentials, and that’s where he spends most of his time. To keep personal information secure, Lohrbach recommends various methods to personally conceal information. He advises students to use strong passwords or passphrases with around 15 characters. Lohrbach also suggests using letters, numbers and symbols in passwords, as well as creating separate passwords for different accounts. “It’s more difficult to remember,” he admitted, “but that way if one thing gets broken into, you’re not as exposed.”

As a result of their media blitz, the ISU chapter inspired three other organizations to be formed across the state at Luther College, Grinnell College and Iowa, which is in the process of becoming registered. One hurdle the club constantly faces is the stigma of being “the weed club.” “I have friends where I’ll try and
show them a flyer, and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, no, I’m not interested in your weed club.’ And, that’s really important to us that we’re not coming across as the weed club,” Furleigh said. “We are a political activist organization when comes down to it at the end of the day, not the weed club.” The club will have its first meeting Wednesday at Carver Hall.

GSB senators should not be underdressed Representing anyone requires a person to share interests and concerns, but that doesn’t mean representatives, in carrying out their privileges and responsibilities, should not dress better than they would if they were in class, working at their work-study campus job, or having lunch in any of the dining centers. Putting together a suit of clothes that shows deference to the gravity of a situation— and wearing it confidently — is the ability of a person who both understands and wants to rise to the varying circumstances of his or her situations. Indeed, dressing up for meetings and for important events is a social expectation. If you go to a wedding, funeral, job interview, or perhaps even church without at least a collar and slacks, you look out of place. Meetings of the Government of the Student Body Senate are just such an occasion. There, senators represent the students of Iowa State and make policies that, using and allocating student fees, improve the vibrancy of student life. We expect that the young men and women charged with spending our money and making sure that other Iowa Staters hear and act upon our most important concerns will, like city, county, state and federal policymakers, dress well. A glance at the GSB Senate shows that the most active members of the Senate already do so. And, given the social conventions that suggest and almost require dress clothes for certain occasions, last week, the senators had an opportunity to add a bylaw that would require senators to adhere to the “business casual” standard. But they chose not to take it. We all have been to funerals. We all have been to weddings. Probably an overwhelming majority has had a job interview. Many have gone to the job fairs that take place at least once per semester. In any event, we all have seen the standard, and know what it looks like. Owning a pair of dress shoes, slacks and a dress shirt — to say nothing of a tie or an outright suit — is an easy matter. Like other levels of government that have more reach than the 30,000 students of a college campus, GSB is made up of leaders. Those leaders hold office. If we are to believe the members of GSB when they say that what they do is important (and if city councilmen and women, and state representatives and senators, and university administrators are to believe them), they ought to convey seriousness. The presiding officers and members of the executive branch who attend GSB Senate meetings exceed the “business casual” standard. Is it a step too far if we expect the senators to meet the same standard? If GSB senators want the students they are supposed to represent to take them seriously — and bear in mind that improving communication between GSB and the student body, getting more students to vote in GSB elections, and informing students and getting them involved in GSB are always goals — they should don attire that suggests they are important. Part of the issue is whether dressing up will help GSB senators better represent students. We believe it would. When you represent someone else, nothing suits you like a suit.

Research renewable energy
Photo courtesy of Flickr/jenpilot Fossil fuels leave pollutants that can be carried to different geographical locations and their costs are rising. Wind is a renewable energy source that can possibly replace harmful fossil fuels. Iowa State is investing in wind energy with a wind turbine on the east side of campus.
n a world full of technological advancements and exponentially growing populations, it’s no wonder why the planet’s nonrenewable resources are being depleted at an alarming rate. This is especially true in the United States, where we consume at least 20 percent of the world’s total energy resources. Keep in mind that we only make up 5 percent of the entire world’s population, yet as a whole we use up so much more energy than necessary without thinking much about it. To put it in a straightforward perspective: Americans consume about four times as many resources than necessary and that limits the resources available to those in other countries. Several developing countries do not even have access to clean drinking water, let alone many other resources that we take for granted with our lavish lifestyles. Fossil fuels (such as coal, oil and natural gas) are currently the most commonly used sources of energy, despite the fact that they are far more harmful to the environment than several other sources. They are a nonpoint source of pollution (runoff that moves through the ground through rainfall and snowmelt that carries pollutants into various bodies of water) and are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. As hopefully all of you have noticed by now, there has been a significant spike in gas prices over the decade, and if we continue to rely on fossil fuels for every aspect of our energy use the cost of gas will continue to climb.
By Caitlin.Ellingson @iowastatedaily.com Eventually the cost of retrieving fossil fuels will probably be too expensive for many of us to buy because we’re going through it so quickly. That is provided we do not run out of these finite sources completely. There have been success stories about vehicles powered by ways such as water and electricity, but they are uncommon and have yet to become a necessity to human life. In addition, the average American simply cannot afford to switch out their current gas-guzzling cars for new energy-efficient ones. So for now, the limited resources that are necessary to power our vehicles should be used wisely and for things that do not have much of an alternative source of power available. Luckily, over the years people have been coming up with new and exciting ways to harness renewable energy that is friendlier to humans and ecosystems alike. One method, which has been a popular topic in the news, is wind energy. As many of you have seen, a new small wind turbine has been set up on the east side of campus. This project cost $250,000, but it can create enough electricity to power buildings like Catt Hall and East Hall for an entire year. In statistical terms, it can generate up to $18,000 (.12 percent) worth of Iowa State’s electrical needs annually, which is about 183,330 kilowatt hours. Iowa State also has partial ownership of a large wind
turbine farm in northern Story County. Wind turbine farms have been increasing in popularity in Iowa over the years and they produce approximately 20 percent of the state’s electricity. There are nearly 3,000 utility scale turbines in the state, which is enough to power more than 1 million homes. Iowa is also rated No. 1 in wind-energy-related employment in the nation by offering at least 3,000 jobs, if not more. Best of all, aside from the start-up costs, wind energy is renewable and has fewer hazardous effects on the environment. There are several other types of similar renewable energy resources that would be better alternatives to fossil fuels, such as solar energy, hydropower and biomass energy. In addition, there are a few energy sources that have the potential to be useful but are not very cost-effective or easily acquired right now, such as geothermal energy, hydrogen and ocean energy. Overall, it is in everyone’s best interest to be conscious of the energy they consume and where it comes from, and to be aware that renewable energy is essential. If the human species continues on the current trajectory of heavy fossil fuel usage, the impacts it will have on our lives and the environment could be devastating in the future.

Relieve stress through exercise A s the spring semester starts rolling, many students are already over-burdened with long readings, huge assignments, and irritating group projects. After the relaxing winter break, it can be hard to get back into the spirit of schoolwork. Often, the stresses of the new semester seem to pile up so rapidly that you are soon buried under the heavy weight of anxiety. If you do feel like this, it’s easy to make the mistake of thinking you are alone. No one out there has the same exact classroom stresses or personal problems, but every one struggles from time to time. Most college students suffer from anxiety or depression at some point during college. A study done by Business Week found that more than one-third of college students who seek help at a university actually have extreme psychological issues. In addition, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America states that 62 percent of students with these psychological disorders who drop out of college do so as a result of their mental and emotional struggle. Neither isolating yourself in your anxiety nor dropping out of college will help the situation. Solutions for anxiety and depression seem to be everywhere, plastered on campus fliers and smattered across various websites. Sometimes, the most common advice is the hardest to take. Trivial things like getting more sleep, meditating, or taking time for yourself never seem as if General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students

they will really help. However, it is the small, elegant solutions that are often most beneficial. One of the best things you can do for yourself if you are experiencing these feelings is stay physically active. Whether it is intramural sports, regular trips to the gym, or even a quiet hour of yoga in your apartment, staying physically healthy will help you stay mentally vigorous. It might sound like a simple thing, but exercise is extremely important for your well-being. Working up a sweat does more than make your body stronger. Exercise releases endorphins in your brain. Endorphins help reduce how intensely you feel pain, whether that pain is physical, mental or emotional. If you already work out, you may know about the glowing, positive feeling that you get right after a good run on the treadmill. That improved outlook on life can be experienced after every workout, so, potentially, the more frequently you hit the gym, the better you will feel. The idea of exercise as a form of stress relief is not new. Almost everyone has heard the phrase “sound body, sound mind,” but many students feel as though they simply do not have time to exercise. Even if an actual workout only takes 30 minutes, it takes additional time to get dressed properly and, after the workout, shower and change. With the anxiety of schoolwork weighing

heavily, the last thing some people think they need is an extra obligation on their schedule. Yet it isn’t necessary to go to the gym every day of the week. It can be helpful to simply take some time for some relaxing yoga or a series of push-ups and sit-ups in the convenient setting of your home. Though exercise is innately rigorous, doing small things like this every day ends up being quite relaxing. The point is not to add to your long list of worries, but to help relieve pressures. It may seem like your mind and accompanying worries are separate entities from your body. However, when it comes to stress management, it is just as important to take care of your body as it is to take care of your mind. Getting a good night’s sleep and eating healthy are small and easy $62, annually, for the general public.

adjustments. Exercising regularly, no matter how difficult it may seem at first, can be more beneficial than all the sleep, meditation, and relaxation in the world. Staying fit might be advice that you have heard many times or may seem irrelevant to your personal problems. However, if you are dealing with schoolrelated stress, it is advice you should consider taking. Whether it is the occasional stress of exams or constant anxiety from taking on too many credits in a semester, anxiety is something that all of us feel at one point or another. Do yourself a favor and take a bit of time to sweat it all out.

By the numbers: 1,070 Days between latest Big 12 wins for the wrestling team
886 Career points scored by junior forward Hallie Christofferson
17 Second-half points by Will Clyburn in win vs. Kansas State
6-6 John Meeks’ overall record
Counter SPORT: Wrestling DEFINITION: An instantaneous response to a defended attack that results in an attack of its own. USE: John Meeks fired a counter attack, successfully avoiding a double-leg to secure a takedown.
Hallie Christofferson is 114 points away from hitting 1,000 points as a Cyclone. But that isn’t the only impressive number on the junior’s resume of career and season-high numbers. In the previous four games, Christofferson is perfect (11-11) on free-throws, shooting 7-12 from behind the arc and shooting 67 percent from the field. All of which ISU coach Bill Fennelly pointed out is nothing short of a star. “She really could be,” Fennelly said. “She can shoot it; you don’t want to foul her because she’ll make the free throw. She’ll rebound it. She can make 3s now, [and] we can post her up a bit.” When push comes to shove, Fennelly’s players’ success most likely comes from work ethic. “Every day she’s in the gym, and every day she’s around is a better day for us,” Fennelly said. “When practice is over, she is usually the last one to leave the gym. What a coincidence.” Coincidence or not, Christofferson is playing some of the best basketball by a Cyclone this season at just the right time. Averaging 17.5 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per game during the past four games, Christofferson said the game is starting to become natural. “I’ve just gotten more comfortable on the floor and not rushed things,” Christofferson said. “It’s just coming to me instead of me going out to get it.” The numbers and actions Christofferson has displayed haven’t gone unnoticed by her teammates. Senior Anna Prins, who is also approaching the 1,000-point mark with 965 points of her own, said if Christofferson keeps doing what she’s doing in practice, it will pay off in the end. “In practice when she’s not taking that shot, we’re telling her to shoot it,” Prins said. “[We’re] trying to get her to keep that streak going of shooting the ball. She’s obviously a really important part of this team on the court and off the court.”
Compatibility with Kansas A close history with Kansas The recent history between the Cyclones and the Jayhawks is one to take into consideration. Overall, the Jayhawks lead 44-28 with a 25-8 home record against the Cyclones. However, in the past four meetings, the matchups in Lawrence, Kan., have been nothing short of thrillers. Last year, the Jayhawks escaped in a double-overtime brawl. The year before that also went into extra minutes, giving the Jayhawks another close victory. In 2010, the Cyclones edged out the Jayhawks with a threepoint swing. Coaches and players said this year’s matchup shouldn’t be anything different and any less thrilling.

‘Rookie’ Clyburn helps in versatility
By Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com Will Clyburn doesn’t feel much like a rookie. The senior guard doesn’t fit the bill, either. Clyburn is 22 years old; he has three collegiate seasons under his belt, and his 24-point, 10-rebound performance against No. 11 Kansas State on Saturday says otherwise. In the Big 12, though, Clyburn is a newcomer playing in his first season after transferring from Utah in 2011 and sitting out last season. On Monday, he was named the conference’s Rookie of the Week for a second time this season. “It’s just an award,” Clyburn said. “I know I’m going to hear a lot of jokes about it by the end of the day.” Clyburn’s teammate and roommate Korie Lucious quickly chimed in. “He hates being called ‘rookie,’” Lucious said. Clyburn went 8-of-16 from the field Saturday in Iowa State’s upset victory and scored 17 of his 24 points in the second half to lift the Cyclones. While Cylburn — who is 6-foot-7 —
starts at guard, he has more recently played all around the court. In the win against Kansas State, Clyburn saw time at power forward and also brought the ball down court as point guard. “Not many guys have the versatility to play four spots,” said ISU coach Fred Hoiberg. “Royce [White] I guess had a little bit last year where he played all five of them. “With Will able to take advantage of some mismatch situations when he’s at [point guard] by posting and going around some bigger guys at [power forward] — that’s a pretty good luxury to have.” Clyburn said playing both guard and forward is something he and Hoiberg have been working on all season even though he doesn’t much care where he plays on the court. In 19 games played so far this season, Clyburn is averaging 14.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game and has scored in double figures in seven consecutive games, six of which have been against Big 12 opponents. He ranks seventh in the conference in

Iowa State captures first conference win in almost three years By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com Exactly two years, 11 months and five days separate the ISU wrestling team’s last win in Big 12 competition before its most recent tally in the conference win total. With its 30-3 win against West Virginia on Saturday, the Cyclones snapped that skid to end an East Coast road trip in which they went 4-0 in duals. “We’ve struggled,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson. “We’ve had some very, very good teams that we’ve been competing against in the Big 12. “It’s not like we’ve been wrestling 10 teams; we’ve got three teams that we’ve had to wrestle against, and all three of them have been very good over the last couple of years.” The Cyclones’ last Big 12 win came Feb. 21, 2010, when they were led by eventual-Olympic gold medalist Jake Varner and David Zabriskie to a 34-7 win against Nebraska at Hilton Coliseum. The 2009-10 season was Jackson’s first as the ISU coach in place of Cael Sanderson, who
‘Freshman things’ As a true freshman, ISU coach Kevin Jackson said John Meeks does typical “freshman” things such as lose his keys or his wallet from time to time. “It’s refreshing just to see a young freshman on the team losing his wallet, losing his license, forgetting his keys,” Jackson joked. “Just freshman-type stuff that you recognize that you’re dealing with a young athlete, a young man who is just straight out of high school.”
left for Penn State. That season, every starter on the team was one of Sanderson’s recruits. However, Jackson said there is not much of a difference between winning with Sanderson’s recruits and winning with his own. “The only difference is when I first got here, those guys were juniors and seniors,” Jackson said. “There’s always a difference of competing with a team of juniors and

>>CLYBURN.p5 scoring. Clyburn said he approaches scoring differently depending on where he is located on the court. “When [Hoiberg] does have me at [point guard], usually I’m looking to pass first,” Clyburn said. “When he has me at [power forward], I’m still looking to score the ball and crash the glass, but I’m trying to crash the glass [anywhere].” Currently, Clyburn is second on the team in rebounding and five times has reached double figures. That, combined with a lot of scoring, is what his teammates have come to expect from the Big 12 rookie. “Will’s one of the most versatile players in the country in this league,” Lucious said. “We know what he can do every night, crashing the glass and scoring points. So, there’s nothing less that we expect from him. “20 [points] and 10 [rebounds] is expected from him, really.” As for those many jokes Clyburn expected to hear? It took no less than a few minutes. “I didn’t even know he got Rookie of the Week,” said guard Tyrus McGee as he looked toward Clyburn. “But good job, rookie.”
Not so quiet, after all Sitting at the microphone at a news conference Monday, Will Clyburn spoke softly and briefly. “I’m not a yeller or screamer,” Clyburn said of his demeanor. “I’m pretty quiet on and off the court.” As a senior starter for the Cyclones, Clyburn has become one of the team’s leaders in what will be his lone season at Iowa State. Here and there the guard smiles at jokes with his teammates, but otherwise Clyburn is often soft-spoken. “Will is quiet by nature,” said ISU coach Fred Hoiberg. “He has gotten more vocal as the season has gone along, he’s stepped up his leadership.” When Clyburn arrived at Iowa State, he quickly became friends with fellow transfer Korie Lucious. The two are now roommates and have gotten to know each other well. Lucious disagreed with Clyburn’s sentiment of his off-court demeanor. “No,” Lucious said quickly when asked if Clyburn is quiet. “On the court he is one of the more quiet people on the team. Off the court it’s a total different story, this guy plays constantly, nonstop.”

seniors and a team of sophomores and freshmen.” Jackson’s starting lineup for this season includes three upperclassmen — Max Mayfield (149 pounds), Boaz Beard (184 pounds) and Matt Gibson (Heavyweight) — with youthful underclassmen dominating the slots of the seven other weight classes.
Of the three freshmen in the starting lineup, 133-pounder John Meeks is the only one who has not redshirted. Meeks’ novice had been evident with his 5-6 overall record before beating West Virginia’s Colin Johnston in overtime on Saturday. However, Jackson said Meeks is getting back to his winning ways even though his offense has been stalling as of
late. “Mentally, he never lost his confidence,” Jackson said of Meeks. “The matches that went into overtime, we didn’t get off enough offensive attacks... We didn’t shoot enough; we didn’t attack enough, and our counter-offense was off. “For you to be able to beat the best guys, you have to stay on your offense, and your counter-offense has to be on as well.”

Photo: Madison Martin/Iowa State Daily In February, students in Supply Chain Management 428 will visit the Target store in Ames. They will go backwards through Target’s supply chain and present their own findings to Target.
Hands-on learning, as real as it gets By Madison.Martin @iowastatedaily.com Students in the College of Business have been presented with an opportunity to follow along through Target Corp.’s supply chain. The tour will primarily take place during spring break. Supply Chain Management 428 is a course which covers specialized topics. This semester, the course is taught by Scott Grawe, assistant professor in supply chain and information systems. Grawe once worked for Target as well, managing domestic international logistics. “I asked Target, ‘Can we design something where we take students backwards through the supply chain?’ Target is not doing a lot with it other than the fact that we’re looking at their supply chain and they’re going to help give us access to the ports, to the suppliers, to the store, the distribution center,” Grawe said. Students will visit a regular retail location in Ames, then a Target distribution center in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
“This class is basically only taught during spring break with the few days on either side of it,” Grawe said. During spring break, students will travel to California to visit Port Long Beach, then fly to China. “The students will get to see how the supply chain works, from the supplier in China, to the port, then to the distribution center and then to the store,” Grawe said. Target is also providing a learning opportunity by bringing forth two live cases to the students for them to solve. “Towards end of February, a team from Target is going to come in and say, ‘Here’s what our supply chain looks like and talk a little bit about the company.’ Then, they are going to kick off what they call a ‘live case,’” Grawe said. Grawe thinks the real life business situations will be a great experience for students. “They are going to give us two business problems that they would normally assign to an analyst. Then we have to solve these business problems,” Grawe said.
Leah Escher, senior in supply chain management, is one of the 27 students attending the trip. “I’m really excited about it,” Escher said. “It’s definitely a great opportunity to network with a large corporation like target and a great opportunity to see what we have learned in class and applied out in the industry.” Once the students return, they will then convene and talk about their plans for the live cases. These live cases include the two business problems Target brought forth before the trip. “We have about two weeks to gather our thoughts and get our presentations ready and go up to the headquarters in Minneapolis,” Escher said. “We will work in groups of three or four.” In Minneapolis, students will present their findings and presentations to senior management. If Target likes the presentation created by the students, they will use their plans to solve the live cases. “In terms of what’s in it for Target, it’s a great opportunity for [Iowa State] to get students in
