ISU student visits D.C. to speak at summit By Ben.Theobald Meredith Gibson is on a mission to change the world. In order to do this, Gibson is focusing on youth. For her efforts, Gibson, senior in chemical engineering, will join the likes of Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi to speak at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, D.C. The summit takes place Monday through Wednesday. Gibson was one of two college women from the National Math and Science Young Leaders Program invited to the summit and will be the only college-aged guest speaker. “As a delegate for the most powerful women summit I will be speaking not only about my own experiences in the young leaders program as a mentee and having been mentored by a woman in the field of math and science, but also how to give back, and the fact that now I’m focusing on mentoring younger girls

Iowa State welcomed nearly 800 families to campus and provided a variety of activities for families to participate in Cyclone Family Weekend. The event’s purpose was to provide an opportunity for parents and siblings to explore campus and get a feel for their student’s experiences thus far, and, of course, to simply spend some quality time with their college student. Kickoff for the weekend took place at the Memorial Union, where tickets and information were picked up. For some families, the trip to campus was only a matter of minutes, or perhaps a couple of short hours. Others, however, traveled a long distance to come spend time with their ISU student. The Dahmm family, for example, traveled about five hours from Chicago to spend time with their son Logan, freshman in environmental science. “We’re going to go tour Sigma Pi, the fraternity where Logan pledged,” said Rick Dahmm, Logan’s dad. In addition to its fraternity tour, the Dahmm family was looking forward to the tailgate and football game that took place Saturday afternoon and were hoping to make their way to see comedian Michael Palascak, who performed at the Memorial Union on Friday night. The Dahmm parents, who brought along their two other children Jake and Lauren, also looked forward to enjoying campus and seeing their son. Cyclone Family Weekend is planned mostly by ISU students. The events the participating families experienced wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the students who staffed the events, as well as student volunteers. “This seemed like a good opportunity to get involved,” said Katie McDonald, junior in psychology, who volunteered her time as a weekend family aide. Students and families who attended the tailgate and football game Saturday were in for a treat as well. At the tailgate, Cy made a brief appearance and was quite the attraction, posing for pictures with the younger crowd and getting football fans excited for the big game. Of course, those who attended the football game against Texas Tech were able to watch the Cyclones score more points in a game against a Big 12 opponent than ever before — perhaps a tribute to the many families cheering on the team in the stands. For those who stayed the entire weekend, a brunch was available in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union, concluding the weekend at the same place where it started off. Student volunteers were helping out once again, making sure students and families were enjoying themselves and asking how everything was as they were on their way out. As Family Weekend drew to a close, it seemed to come far too soon for families and students who enjoyed their time together.

Republicans lay out plans to repeal reform act By Tyler.Kingkade DES MOINES — Congressmen Steve King of Iowa and Mike Pence of Indiana rallied a crowd of supporters at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition fundraiser Saturday by taking shots at Democrats and said one of the Republican party’s top priorities, should they take control in Congress, is to fully repeal the Patients Rights and Affordable Care Act. “[Democrats’] hope is that little by little we’ll yield our freedoms and our resources to the federal government,” Pence said to the crowd. King, a Republican from Iowa’s 5th District, described how the House of Representatives would push forward a bill he drafted to repeal health care reform and after President Barack Obama

Department discovers opportunities for students By Paige.Godden Despite last year’s budget cuts, the educational leadership and policy studies department was able to find assistantships on campus for all of its graduate students in student affairs. There are more than 50 students accepted into the program. Nancy Evans, director of ELPS, said the number of assistantships available varies every year, depending on the funds available throughout different offices on campus. Jessica Haskins, administrative assistant in the ELPS department, said between the months of October and January there were slightly less openings than the program would have liked to have. “We always had strong support from the

ATLANTA — Facing fallout from a recent arrest, T.I. raised money on Sunday for his family’s new Alzheimer’s disease charity and explained how the idea for it took shape during a previous period of legal trouble. The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, held a luncheon for the foundation called “For The Love Of Our Fathers,” which honors their fathers’ battles with Alzheimer’s

disease. The Grammy winner would not talk about his arrest last month on suspicion of drug offenses, but said the inspiration for the foundation came in the aftermath of his 2007 arrest on weapons charges. ”It’s very, very personally close to our family,” said T.I., who served seven months in prison for the firearms offenses. “And while I was, you know, while I was going through my ... period of hiatus, Tameka had the idea of ... starting this foundation.

Survey sheds light on Rutgers to hold vigil for Americans’ sex lives student who killed self The Associated Press

By David Crary The Associated Press NEW YORK — The male-female orgasm gap. The sex lives of 14-year-olds. An intriguing breakdown of condom usage rates, by age and ethnicity, with teens emerging as more safe-sex-conscious than boomers. That’s just a tiny sampling of the data being unveiled Monday in what the researchers say is the largest, most comprehensive national survey of Americans’ sexual behavior since 1994. Filling 130 pages of a special issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the study offers detailed ďŹ ndings on how often Americans have sex, with whom, and how they respond. In all, 5,865 people, ranging in age from 14 to 94, participated in the survey. Dr. Dennis Fortenberry, a pediatrics professor who was lead author of the study’s section about teen sex, said the overall ďŹ ndings of such a huge survey should provide reassurance to Americans who are curious about how their sex lives compare with others. The researchers said they were struck by the variety of ways in which the subjects engaged

Men are more likely to experience orgasm when vaginal intercourse is involved, while women are more likely to reach orgasm when they engage in variety of acts, including oral sex, said researcher Debra Herbenick, lead author of the section about women’s sex lives. She noted there was a gap in perceptions — 85 percent of the men said their latest sexual partner had an orgasm, while only 64 percent of the women reported having an orgasm in their most recent sexual event. One-third of women experienced genital pain during their most recent sex, compared to 5 percent of men, said Among the ďŹ ndings was a high rate of condom usage among 14- to 17-year-olds. Of the surveyed boys who had sexual intercourse, 79 percent reported using a condom on the most recent occasion, compared to 25 percent for all the men in the survey. The survey was conducted from March through May of 2009, with the assistance of Knowledge Networks, among a nationally representative sample of adolescents and adults.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Rutgers University has planned a silent vigil to remember a student who committed suicide after his sexual encounter was secretly streamed online. The tribute to 18-year-old freshman Tyler Clementi was to be held Sunday night on the steps of Brower Commons, on the school’s College Avenue campus in New Brunswick. Prosecutors say Clementi’s roommate and another student used a webcam to broadcast on the Internet live images of Clementi having an intimate encounter with another man in his dormitory room. Clementi, a promising violinist, jumped off the George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River three days later. His body was identiďŹ ed Thursday. Rutgers President Richard McCormick says the vigil will

Last February, Gibson received an e-mail from the director of the engineering leadership program asking if she would like to be involved in a program called the Young Leaders Program through the National Math and Science Initiative. “I gladly accepted that offer, and I was a part of the program all last semester and through the summer,â€? Gibson said. The program pairs young women studying in the STEM ďŹ elds — science, technology, engineering and math — with mentors in industry, and Gibson was paired with a mentor who worked as an executive at Archer Daniels Midland in Cedar Rapids. “As a part of that program this summer I went to New York City for a conference,â€? Gibson said. “I met an executive at ExxonMobil who was really inuential and I just gained a lot of wisdom from her, and she really enjoyed speaking to me and ExxonMobil invited me to be a guest delegate for this conference.â€?

Gibson is involved on campus in a number of organizations through the College of Engineering. Last year she was one of the co-chairpersons for the Engineers Ball and a member of the executive committee for E-Week. Gibson was also a general co-chairwoman for Minds of Tomorrow. “I think that a lot of my leadership in the past year or so has really prepared me well to attend this conference and be a part of the summit,â€? Gibson said. The program has a problem, though. Many of the older upper-management folks are planning to retire in the next couple years, and there aren’t enough people currently studying the STEM ďŹ elds to replace them. “I think that it is deďŹ nitely important that not only [women executives and women working the ďŹ eld], but also that myself and my peers as college students look toward the future and start mentoring and talking to younger girls about interests in math and science,â€?

Pence defended the idea GOP candidates ought not focus on social issues and discuss the economy, given every poll suggests the economy is the number issue for most voters. �You would not be able to print enough money in a thousand years to pay for the government you would need if the traditional family would collapse,� Pence said. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) also attended, but did not speak. Several other Republican and independent statewide candidates and elected officials were there as well.

Gibson has had many experiences that show her passion in educating students. In high school Gibson was a leader through her church youth group of a small group of girls. “I mentored them all through high school while they were in middle school, and ever since then I’ve been really passionate on impacting youth,â€? Gibson said. At Iowa State, Gibson is involved in the organization Minds Of Tomorrow, an organization where members go into schools and actually work with kids on math and science projects in their classrooms. “It’s a really cool way to be a positive role model for young kids,â€? Gibson said. Gibson will be speaking on the topic “Can America Still Compete?â€? on Thursday. She will speak with Margaret Mattix, vice president of ExxonMobil Chemical Co.

Studio 7 moves to Somerset By Nicole.McIntosh Studio 7 was the salon located in the north location of Ames Racquet and Fitness Center. But when the owners heard the gym wanted to expand, they jumped on the opportunity to not only open a new salon, but to make it the salon of their dreams. “Our original dream was to have a full service salon,” said Krista Wrage, part of the husband-wife team that owns Studio 7 Salon and Spa, 2624 Northridge Parkway. “The opportunity just came up, and we took it.” The new salon and spa moved just across the street. “We love Somerset, and our clients are already familiar with the area,” Wrage said. “And we got to design everything from the flooring to the ceiling. We even got to choose the color of the brick.” Having a more relaxing environment was very important to the Studio 7 owners. Wrage and her husband, Scott, focus on using all natural, organic and chemicalfree products, and they wanted their space to reflect that. The products they use are natural-based and contain no talc, fillers or other harmful chemicals. “Whatever you put on your skin, which is your body’s largest organ, is absorbed into your body, so you want to be sure it’s good for you,” Krista said. The salon not only expanded its square footage, it also expanded its services. In addition to hair, make-up, tanning and massage services the salon already offered, it now offers manicures, pedicures, skin care and spray tanning. Krista said she and her staff are excited that they can present this new location with its new features to the public. “Our staff is what really sets us apart,” Krista said. “They are energetic and we love what we do.”

Fusing food and flavors Stand on Welch mixes Korean, Western cuisine By Yue. Wu Hungry4Huh LLC sells a new fusion-cuisine food called kurritos in Campustown every Wednesday through Saturday night. Hungry4Huh is a company that formed in the beginning of June 2010, with three founders — Jayson Hansen, Nick West and Albert Cho. The idea started out through a conversation with Hansen and his girlfriend about starting a Korean sushi delivery service business. “The idea [grew into] something bigger,” Hansen said. Hansen decided to expand his idea into something more serious with better potential, so it changed into serving a large customer market that could be easily related to with high product inventory turnover and a competitive advantage. Serving Korean fusioncuisine food to college students on Campustown was that bigger idea on Hansen’s mind. Looking far and wide, Hansen realized he needed to bring together a team of people that could combine the necessary skills in order to make this idea real. West was proficient in Western cooking and culinary skills, and Cho carried the traditional Korean cooking experience required to create the “fusion” of the cuisine behind the business’ product line. “I know that some of the dishes are not familiar looking to westernized senses, which is why a fusion food would be necessary to begin the assimilation into the typical American palate,” West said. The most difficult part about getting the business started was obtaining the necessary city licenses and permits so that the business could legally produce and sell food products. To park the cart outside of the location

the business is at currently required the permission of both the business owner of the lot and Ames, which owns all sidewalks and roads in the city. Luckily, with the help of networking with direct contacts from all the founders and the support of friends and family members, the team was able to get the business running. They got the necessary licenses and permits so that the business model could actually begin out on the street. Since debuting in September, the kurrito stand has enjoyed plenty of business. Hansen said their stand does things a little differently than the others. “We pay the tax for each kurrito that you purchased,” Hansen said, “and also, we do accept both cash and credit card.” Future goals for Hungry4Huh include rigorous growth and expansion. “[We want to] take the company state-wide first; then, with a business alliance

with Chicha Shack, the company plans to open up new locations at possibly every location the Chicha Shack is located at presently,” Hansen said. Nation-wide expansion to be known as a Korean fusion

fast-food franchise is the ultimate goal for Hungry4Huh. Hansen also wishes to create subsidiaries to be managed by Hungry4Huh in order to make the company a conglomerate, in which new ventures will be created in

various industries. By applying the same creativity and innovation by the same founding team of the company, Hungry4Huh plans to be of great value to its customers in these new ventures.

However, the company will consider all of its employees for other positions within the company. “While a difficult decision, this is the right strategic decision for the Principal,” said Larry Zimpleman, chairman, president and CEO, in a news release. “While performing well financially, our medical business has been declining in relative size for a number of years, thanks to strong growth from our retirement and asset management business.” As a result of the change, the company is estimating that thirdquarter earnings will decrease by three to four cents a share, with full-year earnings declining by 18 to 20 cents.

Main Street

Downtown offers unexplored treasures Cultural district houses variety of local stores By Nicole.McIntosh There is a shopping center where you can get homemade chocolates, fair trade jewelry, records from a coffee shop and shoes you thought you could only find online. Friendly owners who love what they do are there to help you find just what you need. And it’s only a mile away from campus. The unique atmosphere of downtown Ames has tons of benefits that go undiscovered by many students until the end of their college career. “I don’t think students wouldn’t like downtown. It’s a very unique shopping ex-

perience,” said Tim Coble, owner of Temptations and the immediate past president of the Main Street Cultural District. He said the main problem with getting students to the downtown area is that they don’t know about it. “Once students come downtown, they return,” said Holly Boman of Cook’s Emporium. “We have unique shops you don’t find at the mall.” A short trip on CyRide’s Red Route will take you to downtown Ames and the Main Street Cultural District. The district just became a part of Main Street Iowa, which only 40 cities in Iowa are a part of. But Main Street owners have been working together for much longer than that. One way many businesses have been trying to reach out

to the student population is through Facebook. Their fan pages keep patrons informed on specials the stores are having and events being held in the area. Thursdays are a popular day to head downtown. A lot of the shops stay open late so students can take their time after work or school. The more peaceful feeling of downtown makes it a great place to study as well. The Ames Public Library, Cafe Diem, Vinyl Cafe and Stam are just a few spots with tables, Wi-Fi and a relaxing and unique studying environment. The businesses downtown are very much a community. “Students come down here for a pair of shoes and get several options for shoe stores, but then they also see the chocolate store and the

clothing store, and everyone benefits,” Coble said. The holidays are one way the businesses come together to hold events for the city. Halloween will find preschoolers in costumes saying their jokes for candy. Plans for Black Friday may be in the works for November, and Christmas brings tree lighting and other special holiday events. Shop owners say they are perfect places for students to find gifts for loved ones back home. Several places offer shipping to send them home with no hassle. They also offer packages for parents to send their students gifts during Dead Week and finals, and they sell care packages throughout the year. Main Street is also a unique, comforting place to take parents when they are in

town for the weekend. “A lot of students come from small towns and get lost in the big campus,” Coble said. The small-town feeling of downtown can be very comforting to students who aren’t close to home. The Main Street Cultural District offers more than just shopping. Local pubs, ethnic restaurants, coffee houses and organic grocery stores are also found in the area. Live music is not only found on the street corners, but a few of the venues have concerts with nationally known artists as well as local bands. To find out more about downtown, check out its web page,, or look it up on Facebook. Stay tuned to the Daily for upcoming events and happening as well.

Bigotry drove Rutgers teen to commit suicide

Society immature

Tyler Clementi was your normal college student. He played in the front row of the second violins in the Ridgewood, N.J., Symphony Orchestra. He had just started his freshman year at Rutgers University. He was hardly out of line when he asked Dharun Ravi for the privacy of their dorm room on Sept. 19. Ravi however, made the decision to use the computer of Molly Wei to spy on his roommate, tweeting, “Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly’s room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay.” Two days later, upon receiving the same request, Ravi dared, “Anyone with iChat, I dare you to video chat me between the hours of 9:30 and 12. Yes it’s happening again.” The George Washington Bridge between Fort Lee, N.J., and Manhattan, N.Y., is one hour from Rutgers University, and looms 212 feet above the Hudson River. At 8:42 a.m. on Sept. 22, Clementi posted his final words on his Facebook page: “jumping off the gw bridge sorry.” And he did. On the Facebook Memorial Page for Clementi, friend Courtney Ayukawa posted, “I will always remember everything from our preschool’s Halloween party to your amazing musical talents. When you picked up the violin and began to play, it was as if everything just paused until you put it down again.” People are outraged, and rightly so. The tragedy of Clementi’s death has sparked discussion on everything from gay rights to cyber-bullying. Ellen DeGeneres offered a particularly sincere video message stating, “There are messages everywhere that validate this kind of bullying and taunting, and we have to make it stop. We can’t let intolerance and ignorance take another kid’s life.” Openly gay and internationally renowned columnist Dan Savage has started a YouTube channel “It Gets Better” asking for user-submitted videos encouraging support for closeted gay youth, remarking, “Many LGBT kids who do kill themselves live in rural areas, exurbs and suburban areas, places with no gay organizations or services for queer kids,” Savage says. “But gay adults aren’t allowed to talk to these kids. Schools and churches don’t bring us in to talk to teenagers who are being bullied.” We can’t begin to fathom what was going through Clementi’s head on Sept. 22, or the purpose of Ravi’s actions. What we can say is this: Tyler Clementi did not have to end his life — not because his privacy was invaded, and most certainly not because of his sexual orientation. We carry cell phones that give us turn-byturn directions. We watch television over phone lines, drive electric cars, yet we still live in a day and age where a young man will kill himself out of shame for who he is. On one hand, bullying is an inevitable, ugly facet of society, but where is the line drawn? Ravi and Wei each face a decade in jail, and the world lost Tyler Clementi. For what? We admire the poise and tact of Jane and Joe Clementi. We leave you with their words: “Regardless of legal outcomes, our hope is that our family’s personal tragedy will serve as a call for compassion, empathy and human dignity.”

America is not ready for legalized prostitution


n Sept. 28, reported, “Justice Susan Himel of Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice ruled that the laws ‘individually and together, force prostitutes to choose between their liberty interest and their right to security of the person as protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.’” I’ll admit I was a little taken aback by this. It’s not that I didn’t know that prostitution wasn’t illegal in Canada; it’s just that I had never really thought of what it would be like to live in a place where prostitution is decriminalized on a larger scale. Every once in a while something happens to make me think really hard about how far personal liberties should go. Being a Libertarian, my boundaries for what a person can do of their own accord extend much further than most people’s. What made me ponder the realm of personal liberty in our society is whether our level of individual accountability is up to par. How would legalizing prostitution in this country on a large scale change things? What would happen to our society at large? No, I’m not about to go off on a tangent about how prostitution would tear society apart at its seams, or how it would somehow turn people into animals. I’m not really into sensationalizing things. We’d be fooling ourselves if we didn’t think prostitution goes on every day around us, along with a myriad of other crimes we don’t like to think about. I just wonder about the more subtle repercussions. If we legalized prostitution, demand for prostitutes would rise and all of the problems that go along with prostitution would be magnified.

Who sets the standards for what good working conditions are for prostitutes? What higher authority would step in and say, “Hey, this young woman is being overworked. She clearly needs to take a break from servicing customers. The amount of men that her employer is having her sleep with now is too many.” The higher demand for prostitutes would attract sex trafficking. You can say that having prostitution highly regulated would stop this all you want; I’m not buying it. Drugs are highly regulated, pollution emissions are regulated and alcohol is regulated, but somehow we still have problems with all of those things. The horror stories that come with the sex trade are slightly different than someone smoking a joint, smog hanging over a city or teens buying booze underage. The end result of things going wrong during a sexual exchange is not pretty to think about. Nor is it comfortable to entertain thoughts of the kind of abuses shady business practices would entail. I’m not naive of what could go wrong. I don’t think it’s hypocritical of me either, even though I am a Libertarian. Yes, when things “go wrong” with firearms, the result is not pretty, to say the least. Anyone could point out an instance where a tragedy like a school shooting took place, and say, “See, look at that. People aren’t personally accountable enough to handle owning firearms.” The difference is the context. People will always have access to firearms, whether they are illegal or not. Will people always have access to prostitutes if they look hard enough? Yes, of course. But we are uncomfortably aware of what can happen when things go wrong with firearms. There isn’t a placid academic discussion of what happens when some-

one decides to do something crazy with a weapon. What happens when prostitution goes wrong isn’t as media friendly; it’s gritty and less sensational. The Montreal Gazette wrote something disturbing about the dark side of the sex trade’s legalization. “The pimps, according to the police officer, will emotionally manipulate the young women by, for instance, buying them a dog and then killing the dog as punishment for misbehaviour or poor performance. He said one prostitute was found by police with her breasts nailed sideways to a wall, in a horrifying message to other sex workers to toe the line. “’This isn’t the kind of happy place that these people think it is,’ he said with a cynical nod to the marauding tourists.” That’s an unsavory image, isn’t it? The step necessary to assure that atrocities like that didn’t happen in our society — terrible things happening to prostitutes while the masses walked around oblivious — would be paramount to a total paradigm change concerning most people’s accountability. The attitude of “It’s not happening to me, so I don’t care,” would have to disappear. The idea that it’s OK for employers to take advantage of the economic situations of their employees would have to disappear. The real question is, “Can we handle it?” Because if we can’t handle stepping up as a society to make sure prostitutes aren’t mistreated and sex trafficking doesn’t step in to make big bucks, then we just can’t handle it. Does this mean I think there are limits to a person’s liberties? Absolutely not. It means I don’t think our society holds itself accountable for what it does right now. I’m not interested in seeing what happens when we throw thousands of hookers into the mix.


Computers are not services By Heath.Verhasselt


on’t you just love how your car has eight cylinders, when it only lets you use four? Or how you have to buy a right shoe first, and then buy the left? Not to mention how your iPod only lets you use one-third of the space inside of it, leaving the rest empty. Oh, that’s right, none these things actually happen. When we buy something, we get to use it to its full capacity. We get both shoes, our cars go as fast as they can and we get to fill up our iPods to their maximum capacity. These things are commonplace, and this is not what Intel Corporation wants. Intel is rolling out a new pricing strategy for its computer processors, the part of the computer that runs all of the computers instructions. The company wants to put processors into computers that are throttled to half the speed of their true capability. So essentially you’d be buying a computer that runs half as fast as it should. The idea behind this is that you could buy a $50 upgrade card that would allow you to type a code into your computer and have it unlock the rest of the

power from the computer. It’s just like buying downloadable content in “Call of Duty,” but instead of getting more levels, your Xbox would run faster and you’d have no lag. Now that would be something to see — Microsoft, get on it. The real question is, is this a good idea? Intel claims it is only going to use this strategy on a few lower-end machines and see how it plays out over the next year or so. From a business standpoint, it’s an ingenious idea; businesses are always looking for ways to get more money out of the products they sell. It also fits into how the company manufactures chips, so it’s rather cheap for Intel. However inexpensive it may be now, at what cost can this be done? How many customers will buy those computers thinking they have all the power they need, and then take it home to realize its being throttled? The answer to that: not

many. Very few people will actually notice that their computer is running slower and will probably be excited to find out about this fool-proof way to speed up their machines later down the road. It’s really the principal of the matter — it’s the difference between goods and services, and Intel wants to confuse you in regards to which is which. You subscribe to cable TV knowing that you might not be getting all the channels that you could get, or how you sign a contract for your cell phone. You know

what you are getting and how you could get “unlimited everything” but you choose not to. Computers aren’t services — not yet — and shouldn’t be treated as such. This may start out as an entry-level experiment, but Intel could roll this out to its whole line of processors, making the already confusing concept of computers and technology even worse for the user. Hopefully AMD, Intel’s competition, will see this opportunity and use this against the company, causing Intel to rethink its strategy. Or they might do the exact opposite and join in to completely change the way we think about and use computers. Hopefully this won’t be the case, or not yet anyway.

Obama needs to play ‘man card’ for approval By Logan.McDonald


ast March, Barack Obama was the first sitting president of the United States to appear on a talk show. Since his interview on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” he also appeared on “The View” in July to defend his administration’s decisions while trying to remain culturally relevant. Now that election season is in full bloom, Obama has started a town hall meeting tour with the hope of getting fellow Democrats re-elected. In this Twitter-fueled age of direct dialogue between everyday people and celebrities, there is a sense that anyone in the limelight can hold an honest conversation, whether it’s in the form of a 140-character text or an interview with Jon Stewart. But to what can all this frankness lead? Why sit down, look a person in the eyes and be earnest? What good can honest conversation do when 24 percent of Americans falsely believe that our president is Muslim and decontextualized sound bites can force government officials to resign? The path Obama has chosen, appearing on various popular media outlets and holding community meetings, is not helping his approval rating. As of Wednesday, his approval rating was at 46 percent, down from his initial 68 percent when he was sworn into office. If Obama would

like to improve his image with Americans, I suggest that he follow suit with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin: Play the man card. I first became aware of Putin’s exploits last summer, when photos of his vacation to Southern Siberia showed up on various news sites. The prime minister appeared as

to? Nobody knows, but my guess is toward freedom. I believe the rugged American spirit is defined by rolled-up sleeves in the field, not a fancy suit in a television studio. Last month, Putin co-piloted a plane that dumped thousands of pounds of water onto raging forest fires. Later in the month he shot a crossbow

the ultimate man: fly-fishing, swimming in icy rivers and riding shirtless on horseback. This isn’t something uniquely Russian though — several American presidents have done the same thing. George W. Bush was pictured clearing brush on his Texas ranch. President Bill Clinton was seen jogging a lot. Where

at gray whales from a small inflatable boat in order to help with scientific research on migratory patterns of whales. These are the sort of images that can instill national pride in the hearts of men and weak knees in women. These are the sort of images that can transcend political policy and boring facts to show the

content of a leader’s character, not the color of his skin. When the president was on “The View,” he missed out on the opportunity to appear at an annual Boy Scout Jamboree that was going on the same day. What’s more manly and rugged than Boy Scouts? Obama spent this Wednesday afternoon in a backyard in Des Moines, answering questions from concerned Iowans. He tackled issues ranging from unemployment to health care, but failed to tackle any bears or Siberian tigers. Now don’t get me wrong, the president has done some things that improve his man image. He has been photographed multiple times smoking cigarettes, which obviously gained him some cool points. He also plays basketball with NBA stars. These are steps in the right direction. But in order for America to return to her former glory and rally behind her leader, she needs to see more. Let’s have less political posturing and well-crafted speeches to make way for more manly photo-ops with Obama. With this harsh partisan political environment and a myriad of issues at hand, America has left President Obama with a tough decision — mountain climb in the Rockies or wrestle alligators in the Everglades?


Take a ‘Mental Health Day’ to restore your balance

By Michael.Belding


ater this semester, around midterm and again during Dead Week and Finals Week, dorm rooms across campus and apartments everywhere will be lit as students burn the midnight oil trying to finish their projects and study for tests. Many of those lights will stay on all through the night. Some students will see their first sunrise because of it. Their eyes will be lifeless and their hair disheveled as they straggle to class. But they will have met their all-nighters with success, beating the clock to the finish line. And for what? At what cost? Somewhere among this year’s term papers, midterm and final exams, cerebral reading assignments, puzzling homework and burdensome work schedules, students will need to find something to help themselves retain whatever sanity they have managed to hold on to. Even though it may seem hard to find free time when you don’t feel completely lethargic, working at a hobby — either by yourself or with friends — will, I think, help your mind escape endless apprehension. I try to balance school, work and a healthy amount of sleep and down time. I won’t pretend that I have anything like the most difficult course

need to take what my friends and I call a Mental Health Day — a day to relax, give myself some time off and generally just kick it.

Slow start, early Sooner goals lead to 4-3 Cyclone defeat By Blake.Schultz A number of times already this season, the Cyclones have allowed an early goal, and each time it seemed to have let the life out of them. Friday night’s game started out much the same. The weekend opener against Oklahoma was full of goals, but not enough of them went the Cyclones’ way and Iowa State fell at home 4-3. “The bottom line is, and it’s been the same message as the last few games, we have to come out of the gate better,” said coach Wendy Dillinger. Five minutes into the game, the Sooners put the first score up on the board and the ISU Soccer Complex went silent. In the 20th minute, Oklahoma scored again, but Iowa State found life when freshman

Iowa State faced with fierce competition at Air Force Invitational By Dan.Martin The ISU tennis team wrapped up its weekend tournament at the Air Force Invitational on Sunday. The competition proved to be tough and the Cyclones had to fight for

their wins all weekend. The Cyclones kicked the tournament off Friday with three first-round singles victories. Tessa Lang, Emma Waites and Erin Karonis all won their opening matches.

By Blake. Schultz The Cyclones dropped their second conference game of the weekend Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 loss at No. 8 Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State (11-1-1, 4-0 Big 12) scored in the 14th minute and it would stand for the remaining 76 minutes as the only goal. Just like Friday night against the Sooners, Iowa State (6-5-2, 1-2) was unable to recover from giving up an early goal.

Oklahoma State out-shot the Cyclones 11-4 in the first half with four shots on goal against Iowa State freshman Maddie Jobe. Jobe finished the game with five saves. Iowa State had a number of opportunities to tie the game in the second half, but they were unable to convert. In the last five minutes, Iowa State’s Megan Long and Kelsey Calvert attempted to get the ball past the Cowgirl defenders, but Long’s shot was blocked and Calvert’s went wide. The Cyclones continue Big 12 play next weekend with a pair of road games at Texas Tech and Baylor.

Women head to Windy City Classic Cyclones face some of their toughest competition of the year Monday, Tuesday at Highland Park, Ill., tournament a First Team All-American in 2009 with the lowest average score in the Big Ten. Northwestern is glad to be hosting this tournament again. It is always one of the most popular for players and fans alike. “Our goal with this tournament is to make it one of the premiere women’s golf tournaments in the country, and the teams that have competed in the past have had rave reviews about it,�

By Dan.Martin Iowa State’s women’s golf team is heading east to compete in the Windy City Collegiate Classic on Monday and Tuesday in Highland Park, Ill. The team has ďŹ nished in second and fourth place overall in their opening two competitions, and another impressive ďŹ nish at the Windy City Collegiate Classic would mark a good start to the season for the Cyclones. Tournament play will start as early as 9:30 a.m. Monday. Teams will be playing in threesomes for a total of 54 holes. Northwestern University is the host of the tournament, which will be played at the Northmoor Country Club golf course. There will be a lot to watch for at this tournament. A total of 11 teams will be competing, including the 2009 NCAA champions, Purdue. ISU conference rival Texas Tech will also be there along with Central Florida, East Carolina, New Mexico, Northwestern, San Diego State, Texas Christian University, UNC-Greensboro and UNC-Wilmington. The Cyclones are facing some of their hardest competition of the year at this tournament. The Cyclones will bring a very complete team. Senior Laurence Herman placed in the top 10 at last week’s tournament, marking her eighth career top 10 ďŹ nish. Kristin Paulson, Victoria Stefansen and Prima Thammaraks have all had good starts to the season as well. Sophomore Punpaka Phuntumabamrung has emerged as one of the top players in the NCAA this season, as she placed in the top 10 of

The score at halftime seemed like a big task to come back from, and in recent weeks, the Cyclones have faded away in the wake of a big halftime deďŹ cit. Back in September in a game at home against Iowa, the Cyclones trailed by two at halftime and were scored on twice more in the second half and lost 4-0. “You hate to lose that way to Iowa, especially in-state rival, but heading into the conference season, it was deďŹ nitely a valuable lesson,â€? Dillinger said. In the second half Friday, the Cyclones

>>OFFENSE.p1B had 12 carries for 103 yards while Shontrelle Johnson carried the ball 12 times for 102 yards. “It was deďŹ nitely good to get things going,â€? Robinson said of the running game. “It was good to get in a little bit of a rhythm.â€? Both Robinson and Johnson had runs of 60-plus yards, but Johnson’s 61-yard run with 13:17 left in the fourth quarter gave the Cyclones a 38-24 lead and the momentum they needed. “Coach always talked about pressing the line,â€? Johnson said. “I listened to him, ďŹ nally. I listened to him and trusted my speed, and the offensive line had great

all competitors in both of the season’s ďŹ rst two tournaments. Phuntumabamrung said she has come out so strong in large part due to improved consistency in her game. She said she rarely hits shots that land far off target, and if she does Herman she is able to recover quickly and keep the hole alive. One of the biggest names to be at the tournament will be Purdue’s, Maude-Aimee LeBlanc. She is one of three returning seniors from Purdue’s championship team last year. She was

looked like a new team. They controlled the ball throughout the entire half and got off many clean looks at the goal. “We just worked hard, we battled every ball, we pushed Dillinger through their defenders and we just fought, fought and fought,â€? Morgan said. In the 54th minute, Dominguez narrowed the gap with the ďŹ rst goal of her career, but the momentum was let down when Oklahoma scored easily a minute later when Iowa State keeper Maddie Jobe overplayed the ball and Oklahoma forward Whitney Palmer walked it in. Down two goals with 35 minutes to play, the Cyclones refused to give up. They continued to control the ball in

Reeves’ kick return for a touchdown provided another spark when he returned Texas Tech’s onside kick late in the fourth quarter, pushing the Cyclones over the 50-point mark. The return was also only the second kick return for a touchdown in the history of Jack Trice Stadium. When Texas Tech tied the game at 24 in the third quarter, sophomore linebacker A.J. Klein felt he and his teammates kept their composure, enabling the Cyclones to go on and win the game. “We just got to stay level-headed,â€? Klein said. “We thought of the game as ze-

Thanks to a duo of top ďŹ ve ďŹ nishes from Nate McCoy and Borja Virto, the ISU menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf team ďŹ nished second overall at this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s D.A. Weibring Invitational. McCoy seems to be hitting his stride, ďŹ nishing in a tie for ďŹ fth overall this weekend along with winning last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meet at the VCU Shootout. Virto showed outstanding composure in his ďŹ rst collegiate meet of the season, shooting rounds of 73, 76 and 73, placing him in a tie for ďŹ fth overall along with McCoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very pleased with Virtoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play,â&#x20AC;? said coach Andrew Tank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He demonstrated a lot of poise this weekend, and now he is another player who is going to be ready to play at a high level for us.â&#x20AC;? Another bright spot for Iowa State at the tournament was Michael Wuertz, who shot rounds of 78, 75 and 73, ďŹ nishing in a tie for 15th place overall.

With three meets behind them, the team and coaches feel more conďŹ dent than ever. After this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meet there have now been four golfers place in the top 10 in each of the ďŹ rst three meets of the Tank season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have four golfers who have ďŹ nished in the top 10 overall in this ďŹ rst part of the season,â&#x20AC;? Tank said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased with how we have played.â&#x20AC;? NCAA powerhouse Illinois won the tournament and was Virto led by a trio of golfers who ďŹ nished ďŹ rst, second and third, overall. The Cyclones had their best ďŹ nish of the season, coming in second place out of the 18 teams that attended the tournament. The next meet for Iowa State is Oct. 25 and 26 at the Memphis Invitational.

In the 60th minute, Morgan scored another goal to bring the Cyclones within one of the Dominguez lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brittany and JD stepped up big time,â&#x20AC;? Dillinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got those same chances in the ďŹ rst half and they just put them away in the second half. You could really

tell they wanted to win.â&#x20AC;? Iowa State kept on pushing all the way through the end, but Oklahomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense would not allow them to get around its back line. The game ended in a 4-3 Oklahoma win, but Iowa State came away with many positive things from the second half. However, a slow start doomed the Cyclones yet again. Morgan became the team leader, as the pair of goals gave her four on the season.

Arnaud said of his four-touchdown performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any receivers, no one would catch the ball.

ISU team hindered by penalties in OU losses By Sara. Schlueter For Family Weekend, the Cyclone hockey team hosted the Oklahoma Sooners and lost both matchups. Both Friday and Saturday night games ended with the ďŹ nal score 4-3 in favor of the visitors. Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game was full of aggression and penalties from both teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a lot of emotion in this game. We are learning to control the emotion, and learning a few things about penalties,â&#x20AC;? said ISU coach Al Murdoch. During the ďŹ rst period, both teams were unable to get past the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense. The Cyclones were rough handling the puck, but their strong defense kept the Sooners from scoring. The second period shook off defense and became a completely different game. Six minutes into the period, the Cyclones put numbers on the board

when freshman forward Chris Cucullu scored against Sooner goalie Matt Pombo on the power play. Shortly after the Cyclones scored, the shower of penalties began. There was a ďŹ ght on the ice that resulted in three penalties for the Cyclones, including one of the ďŹ veminute variety for freshman defenseman Shawn Crawford. The Sooners also received a penalty for cross checking. With three of the Cyclone players in the penalty box, the Sooners were able to score back-to-back goals, which gave them the lead. More penalties given to the Cyclones let the Sooners score once again before Iowa State was back at full strength with less than eight minutes left in the second period. Once at full strength, the Cyclones were able to set up the power play, and senior forward Matt Cohn made his shot, and Iowa State ended the second period trailing 3-2. In the last period of the game, each team traded one more goal, leaving

the ďŹ nal score at 4-3 Sooners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is improving a lot, and each game we are getting a lot better,â&#x20AC;? said ISU freshman Jake Flynn. Saturday night, the Cyclones couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t manage to change their Friday night fate and lost by the same score. After a scoreless ďŹ rst, with the Cyclones stopping all six shots and the Sooners stopping all 10 shots, Sooner forward Travis McKinney scored and gave Oklahoma the lead in the middle of the second period. Shortly after, Flynn scored the ďŹ rst goal for the Cyclones. The Sooners then scored two goals against sophomore goalie Paul Karus. The Cyclones came back determined to score a goal, and Flynn added another, bringing the Cyclones within one. The third period began with a score of 3-2, just as it had the night before. One minute into the last period, the Cyclones tied up the game with

BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No hats, no T-shirts, no celebratory champagne. Just a 49th postseason appearance for the New York Yankees and a chance at an unprecedented 28th World Series title. The defending World Series champions missed out on their second straight AL East title on Sunday, losing 8-4 to the Boston Red Sox to complete a rare late-season fade and ďŹ nish with a wild-card berth. The Yankees open the postseason at Minnesota on Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In New York, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expected to make the playoffs, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Step 1. We all know what the goal is,â&#x20AC;? manager Joe Girardi said. The goal is not to win the division. The goal is to win the whole thing.â&#x20AC;? The Yankees went into the ďŹ nal day of the season needing a victory and a Tampa Bay loss at Kansas City to win the division. Had New York (95-67) and Tampa Bay ďŹ nished in a tie, the Rays would have taken the title anyway by virtue of a 10-8 record against the Yankees in the season series. But the Rays (96-66) clinched the AL East and home ďŹ eld against Texas when the Yankees lost, then beat the Royals 3-2 in 11 innings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be stupid to say it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how you ďŹ nish. We would have liked to get this thing done, but we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? said pitcher Andy Pettitte, who appears to be on track to start Game 3 against the Twins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the world champs until someone knocks us off.â&#x20AC;?

They are a darn good team, and we are a young team that is still continuing to grow,â&#x20AC;? Murdoch said. Next weekend, the Cyclones will host Arizona State University for a pair of games, and both start times are scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

>>RHOADS.p1B plays. They made them on both sides of the ball, and they made them on special teams,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads. “I think that mental toughness abounds in every phase of the program.” It had been 16 years without a kick return touchdown, eight years without seeing the number five hit the left side of the scoreboard, and Cyclone quarterback Austen Arnaud had, statistically, one of his best games in a Cyclone uniform. Texas Tech’s offense thrived as the Red Raider defense wilted, but it was a game

until the end. “Just being around Jack Trice and being around this environment, Arnaud this is one of the best games I’ve been involved in. I’ve seen some good ones here, I’ve been coming since I was 5 years old,” Arnaud said. “I don’t know that I’ve ever thrown four touchdowns before.” The excitement of a 90-point shootout with 949 yards of total offense was all over Rhoads’ face while he was talking post-game.

The mood was different in the third quarter, when Texas Tech tied up the game at 24 points a piece, after the Cyclones and their fans had been dancing around with 24-0 lead less than an hour before. Giving up 14 quick points before halftime and then struggling to move the ball after halftime, the team was in need of a turnaround. “The talk was to relax. There’s one thing that I never tell my football team and that’s to relax. You get ahead and you relax and it’s no good,” Rhoads said. “Today, I wanted them to relax. They tightened up, they were nervous about what

they were giving away. You’ve got just keep progressing and moving on, and that’s what we did.” While the Cyclone offense had plenty of success under the lights, with running backs Alexander Robinson and Shontrelle Johnson each hitting 100 yards, and Arnaud finding holes in the TTU defense, giving up a 24-point lead can wreak havoc on young psyches. “It was a little thing here or there and it turned into a touchdown. A couple blown coverages or something like that, with their up-tempo offense, that’s going to happen sometimes,” said Cyclone linebacker Jake Knott, who had 13 tackles Saturday. “It was kind of a reality check I guess, and we had to get back into it and watch our offense get down the field.” With an offense questioned after a shaky performance against Northern Iowa a week before, the Cyclones rallied, answering the bell to the tune of four fourth-quarter touchdowns, pushing Rhoads to 7-0 in night games in Ames. Red Raider quarterback Taylor Potts can’t take too much blame for the loss, going 42-of-62 for 377 yards and five touchdowns to just one interception. His completions and passing attempts were both Jack Trice records, and his favorite target, receiver Lyle Leong, was a problem to the Cyclone secondary all night. Leong finished with nine catches for 125 yards and three touchdowns. Texas Tech got its numbers, but went back to Lubbock 0-2 in the Big 12. “We got tired of all the negative things that we went through in practice. We just came in and worked hard and got the job done,” said ISU cornerback Jeremy Reeves.

Reeves’ touchdown from returning the Red Raiders’ onside kick attempt put the game away for Iowa State, but until Arnaud took a knee, Cyclone fans couldn’t believe it. Saturday night was a backand-forth battle that put on a great show with big play after big play, the Cyclones overcame challenges to will themselves to victory. Overcoming those problems were the trademark of Rhoads’ first team just a year ago, but this was the first ISU victory over Texas Tech since Seneca Wallace quarterbacked an 11th-ranked Cyclone team to a win in 2002. The white-helmet-topped Red Raiders amassed 28 first downs, gained 5.8 yards per play in the 87 plays they literally ran through, and converted all of their red zone opportunities into points. Texas Tech gained notoriety with eye-popping numbers like those under former coach Mike Leach. First-year Texas Tech coach and onetime Rhoads mentor Tommy Tuberville hasn’t been noted for those things yet in 2010, but the offense was rolling like it was 2008. Iowa State had a counterpunch every step of the way. “We knew they were going to come back strong, they have a quick scoring offense, so we just had to keep fighting. I think we accomplished that,” Robinson said. While the Red Raiders nearly doubled the Cyclones’ yardage through the air, ISU offensive coordinator kept the ball on the ground 50 times, giving Iowa State 290 yards rushing and an edge in time of possession. The Lubbock, Texas-based group ran more plays and converted both their fourth down opportunities in the game. Rhoads’ team responded with

a season-high 10-for-18 third down conversion rate. But Iowa State’s explosive plays blew the game open. The Cyclone coaching staff had been stressing their importance to the young squad, and with Arnaud’s touchdown passes for 36 and 27 yards, and runs by Robinson for 65 yards and Johnson for 61 yards put all of that in the past. “I expect big plays from this offense every Saturday, but we haven’t been doing that lately. Tonight feels good to get back on track,” Arnaud said. Iowa State caught all the breaks when the game mattered. It wasn’t because the team was any faster than Texas Tech, had been prepared for tough competition, or were much more savvy with the game plan. The Cyclones came ready to play on Saturday, and were gritty enough to overcome obstacles. “There was a different energy tonight. It starts with being ready to play. When you’re 18, 19, 20 years old, you take the field with conviction and you play differently,” Rhoads said. “We practiced with conviction. We’ve got a lot of belief and strength in that belief that we practiced with, and it showed tonight.” The Cyclone spread offense might not have completely come of age on Saturday night, but it certainly found the scoring touch they had been looking for. Factor in that in came against an opponent known for the spread, and at a pivotal time in the Cyclones’ season, and the ISU coaching staff is ready for more challenges waiting. “We’re in our infancy still as a program, we’ve played 18 games,” Rhoads said. “But, we might have turned a corner today.”
