Effects of using and abusing steroids
The following is part one of a two-part series on steroid use at Iowa State. Carl, the ISU student depicted in this story, declined to be identified by his real name because of legal reasons. He uses the alias â€˜Carlâ€™ for mailing and ordering purposes.

College dean Hira to retire at end of June Dean of the College of Business Labh Hira has announced that he will retire from his position when his term ends on June 30, according to an ISU news release. Hira, who has been the dean of the College of Business for 11 years, will stay on the ISU faculty as a professor of accounting, the news release stated. During his time as dean, Hira has seen through the completion of the Gerdin Business Building and the creation of a Ph.D. program in business and technology. Hira also served as a co-chair on the ISU Presidential Search Committe, which helped choose Steven Leath to be the new ISU President. â€œThe College of Business has a great story to tell. We should be proud of the many things that all of us, together, have achieved in recent years,â€? Hira said in the news release. â€œThe college is well positioned for a new dean to build on those accomplishments. The university is fortunate to have such strong leadership in President Geoffroy and Presidential-designate Leath, who I know will conduct a successful search for the positionâ€?

Three years ago, Carl never would have expected his relationship with steroids to go this far. His motivation: sports. â€œI compete in the sport of powerlifting, where drug use is not only common, but openly accepted as part of the sport,â€? Carl said. â€œI figured if everyone else was doing it, why shouldnâ€™t I?â€? After being exposed to steroids at the age of 19, Carl began his fury of research to learn more about the powers of steroids. â€œI decided to wait until I was 21 to try them,â€? Carl said. He said that waiting didnâ€™t make the experience any easier. â€œI took the syringe out of the box and pulled two millimeters of testosterone enanthate from the vial. I waited trying to work up the courage, and finally I managed to push the needle in slowly. I pushed the plunger until it was gone, and I pulled the needle out. A few droplets of blood came out. I laid on the cold tile for a while before I would stop shaking.â€? Carl never realized how much his life would change after that moment. Not only would his body begin to change, but his sense of well-being, his lifestyle and his future would be changed forever.

Have you used performance enhancing steroids at any point in your life? Tell us at iowastatedaily.com â€œSince Iâ€™ve been using them, my vascularity increased greatly, I lost fat and gained more muscle,â€? Carl said. â€œThe steroids are what increases strength and muscle size, and the effects on body composition are great.â€? Carl struggled with depression prior to his use, but the steroidsâ€™ effect on his confidence and selfesteem allowed him to surpass this condition. Carlâ€™s strength performance in the powerlifting meets also excelled since he began using them. â€œIt has taken me three years of use to win my competition,â€? he said. â€œBut I think it will be another two years before I can win open nationals. Iâ€™m willing to do whatever it takes.â€? Harrison Pope, steroid specialist, psychiatrist and professor of psychiatry at Harvard University, said steroids are called anabolic-androgenic because they have two sets of effects. â€œThe anabolic are the muscle gaining effects that cause you to gain muscle mass,â€? Pope said. â€œAnd the androgenic effects are the so-called masculinizing effects which include both physical effects such as hair growth or acne and the psychological effects.â€? Malhar Gore, physician at Thielen Student Health Center, said steroidsâ€™ effect on
By Leah.DeGraaf @iowastatedaily.com What she looks forward to the most? Spending time alone with her chimpanzees. In the craziness of Jill Pruetzâ€™s life, after all the interviews, classes, lectures, conferences and honors, she cannot wait to get back to Senegal to spend some quality alone time with the African primates she has spent years growing to love. Like many professors at Iowa State University, Jill Pruetz, associate anthropology professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Science, is no ordinary staff member. â€œChimps are always at the back of her mind. She always has that pull to be out in the field, and if she could always live with them, she would,â€? said Daniel Musgrave, graduate student in physical anthropology and advisee of Pruetz. Jill Pruetz has been studying chimpanzees in Africa now for over 10 years. In fact, she and her colleagues just celebrated their 10-year anniversary with a party in Senegal, the western African

country where her research project has developed into far more than simple observation. While researching savanna chimps in Fongoli, Senegal, Pruetz witnessed for the first time a chimp using a wooden spear to hunt other small primates. â€œIn the past, that was something that had been used to set humans apart from other animals, we hunt with tools and animals do not, so that was a huge thing,â€? Pruetz said.
ISU students create â€˜Occupyâ€™ walkout for Ames By Paige.Godden @iowastatedaily.com
This ground-breaking discovery led Jill Pruetz to being named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2008. Her work is currently being showcased at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., as part of the Human Origins exhibit in the National Museum of Natural History. She contributed one of her spears to this exhibit, and saw her work on display in the museum for the first time last spring.
Students are planning on Occupying Iowa State for noon on Thursday, Oct. 13. Two graduate students at Iowa State, Carol Oliveira and Angie Carter, who are part of the â€œ99 percentâ€? and plan to attend Thursdayâ€™s event, believe Occupy Wall Street will be historical. The two said itâ€™s a chance for people to get involved in participatory democracy in a time where many of them are fed up with the election cycle. â€œI feel really lucky to be in school right now,â€? Carter said. Carter said that students need to do something at the state level, â€œespecially because this is what weâ€™re going to be dealing with for the rest of our lives.â€?

>>CHIMPS.p1 “I like being able to bring what I do to a wider audience,” Pruetz said when asked about her greatest achievement. The success continues in Jill’s life. This past year, Pruetz was awarded the Walvoord Professorship by Iowa State. She is the first person to be honored with this recognition in the College of Liberal Arts and Science. With this professorship, comes a newly found freedom. Pruetz is now able to branch out even farther with her research and delve into areas she has never touched before. “It’s easy to respond to genuine people and also people who are fun and relatable, and despite everything she has on her plate, despite some of the difficulties her work possesses, she is always genuine, she is always passionate, and she can bring anyone in to what she cares about,” Musgrave said. In 2008, Pruetz began her own non-profit organization, called Neighbor Ape. Her goal is to meet the educational and basic life needs of the people in the area, but also later focus on health related issues. On Oct. 3 she was able to secure a $30,000 donation to Neighbor Ape. This donation will fund the construction of a dormitory, which will allow village children to attend school in the city, where higher-quality education is available. Pruetz has been collecting behavioral ecology data, mainly feeding and ranging, on chimpanzees in Senegal for six years now and spent four years before that getting the chimps habituated to her presence. This last year, Pruetz was able to spend 42 nights alone with the chimps. Never bored with her research, she does not think it will be boring for a long time. “I just wait for [the chimpanzees] to do something, because they are always going to do something,” she said. “It is so much fun, because I never know where they are going to take me. It has really broadened my interests.” With 189 sightings of chimpanzees using spears to hunt bush babies, Pruetz has collected many spears over the years and keeps most of them in Senegal for studying. One of these spears was auctioned off and raised $2,600. On her journeys, Pruetz has traveled to areas all around the world studying primates. Her research has taken her to Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Kenya and most recently Senegal. “I have a lot of respect for her, about the way she is like no nonsense when it comes to
the chimps. There is almost nothing that could stop her from doing what she does,” Musgrave said. The experiences she has collected over the years are innumerable, and students at Iowa State have much to learn from her. “With anthropology, I think, especially these days, experience is the key. Once I started getting experience, it was a snow ball effect,” Pruetz said. Her own experience first began with volunteering help for captive primates. Because of this experience she was asked to manage her advisors project in Peru with tamarin monkeys and then was asked to manage a project in Kenya. “I felt really confident after that, that I could start my own site. I mean, why not?” she said. In the end, all of her personal experiences helped drive her to the place she is at today, and she believes students should follow this lead. “Experience really gives you a leg up and lets you see what you like. Especially with primate studies, students need some sort of field course if they want to do field work. Field school gives students an idea of what it is like, so they are then able to decide if it is really something they want to do,” Pruetz said. With Pruetz’s first-hand knowledge on chimpanzees and primates, it is no wonder why her fascination led her to attend the 2011 film “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. “What I really liked was the fact they didn’t use any real chimps. That is still done in entertainment today, and it’s not a good scene for the chimps,” she said of the film. “I also really liked the detail in terms of the chimps’ appearances. I don’t know how many people will really appreciate it, but if you look at the chimps they are all very different looking, and that is true because you don’t have just one typical chimp. To me, chimps are just as different as people.” Pruetz was also very impressed by the vocalizations. “There was a lot of laughing, and it was chimp laughing in the appropriate places, and of course, then it always makes me laugh because, you know, laughing is contagious.” Overall, Pruetz strongly suggests people go out and see the movie.

>>STEROIDS.p1 body composition stimulate muscle tissue to grow and bulk up in response to training by mimicking the effect of naturally produced testosterone on the body. “Steroids also promote the masculine traits that males develop during puberty, such as deepening of the voice and growth of body hair,” Gore said. Carl’s decision to use steroids has set a standard for what his future entails. “As soon as I started, it became a major lifestyle decision, one you can’t back away from easily,” Carl said. “A lot of my life from here on out is going to have to do with steroids, probably forever.” Sports aren’t the only reason some individuals begin using steroids. Pope says many use because they do exactly what you want them to. “The main reason people are prompted to use steroids is because they work,” Pope said. “They are extremely effective for gaining muscle mass and the short term hazards are pretty minor.” Debra Atkinson, director of the Ames Racquet and Fitness Personal Training, said people looking for instant, dramatic changes in their bodies are more likely to use steroids. “Individuals use steroids because they have an intense desire to change and a need for self-confidence and instant gratification,” Atkinson said. Pope also thinks that the lack of short term side effects plays a role in the motivation for steroid use.
Side effects In men:
Reduced sperm count Impotence Development of breasts Shrinking of the testicles Difficulty or pain while urinating
Facial hair growth Deepened voice Breast reduction Menstrual cycle changes
Effects of continued steroid use:
Acne Bloated appearance Rapid weight gain Clotting disorders Liver damage Premature heart attacks and strokes Elevated cholesterol levels Weakened tendons
Behavioral effects: Depression Extreme irritability Agression Info from: http://espn.go.com/special/s/ drugsandsports/steroids.html
“Most kids who take them don’t notice any adverse effects in the short term,” Pope said. “So as a result, they are rarely deterred by fears that they are going to get the dangerous side effects, even though in reality, the long term side effects may be fairly serious.” Jake Prater, vice president of the Iowa State University Weight Club, said the main reason people want to try steroids is for performance. “Whether it’s strength,
>>OCCUPY.p1 Carter said she hopes the whole community joins in. She said she got her undergraduate degree at the University of Iowa, and there wasn’t as big of a divide between the city and the university. “Wouldn’t it be cool if we had an occupy Ames that started at the courthouse?” Carter asked. Both agreed that a lot of people involved with Occupy Wall Street have been criticized for a lack of control and a lack of demands, but the public needs to see the magnitude behind the movement first, then a list of demands will follow. They said it is a beginning of a process. People are usually given things in a top down way, but this will hopefully get people energized and motivated. “We want to write down everything. We don’t want to just write down what signs say but what the signs mean,” Oliveira said. They said if the demands need to come locally, then democracy will come.
speed or looking better, people are interested in steroids because they enhance natural ability.” Carl thinks that a lot of steroid users have the wrong intentions for using steroids. “Most of the people that use steroids are gym rats that are insecure about their looks and think drugs are the solution to their problems,” Carl said. “Athletes, both professional and amateur, are a minority.” Carl says that these inexperienced steroid users are often the ones who cause problems. “When most people start, they really don’t have any idea what they’re doing, and they don’t have any guidance,” Carl said. “Those are the idiots that run into trouble and make a bad name for everything.” Although Carl is experienced with his use, he has run into problems along the way. “Some drugs increase my hematocrit, [or amount of red blood cells,] and cause my anxiety to flare up. I’ve become an insomniac so when I take some drugs, I have to take sleeping pills,” Carl said. “Otherwise, I can stay up for three to four days.” “Being on high doses of anything lowers my high-density lipoproteins a little bit, but I had an experience with one drug that took my HDL from the mid-50s to 4. That’s really, really bad,” Carl said. Pope argues that one of the major dangers of steroids is the fact that science does not know enough about them. “In science, we have a phrase that absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. In other words, we don’t have a whole lot of evidence about the long term cardiac effects,” Pope said. “The shortage of data does not mean that these drugs are safe. It simply
“The disenfranchisement people are feeling are from the national structures,” Carter said. Oliveira mentioned the bank bailouts as well.“No one has been held guilty yet,” Oliveira said. “People are being left behind from decision making.” Both Oliveira and Carter spoke about more of the criticisms the Occupy movements have been facing. They said part of the criticism from this is that it’s a bunch of lazy students, hippies and even a group of students who are looking for dates. Carter said that isn’t true. “So many students who are looking for jobs did it right. They went to school and did the internships,” Carter said. They said they want to be involved in the movement because they feel it is a responsibility to represent the 99 percent. “It’s the future of our country. Even if you’re part of the lucky one percent, you have to be ... looking at the future for your kids.” Warren Blumenfeld, associate professor in curriculum and instruction, said he
means we don’t have enough data yet.” Carl stated that he researches what he can about the consequences of the drugs, but there is not enough information to be 100 percent sure. “I know steroids have some negative effects on the cardiovascular system,” Carl said. “I don’t know how those effects happen, but nobody really does because since it’s illegal, they can’t really do studies on it to find out. “ “These drugs may be more dangerous than we know,” Pope said. “But it may be another decade before we fully understand the magnitude of those dangers.” Another problem with the various types of steroids is that each and every drug has the potential to affect the user differently. “With 90 percent of the drugs I’ve taken, I experienced no negative side effects what-so-ever,” said Carl. “But these drugs have caused other people’s blood pressure to go through the roof. Their HDL drops, they have problems with estrogen control, or it can just make them feel terrible. The effects of the drugs are completely individual and are different for everyone.” One way steroid users deal with the negative side effects is through the use of ancillaries, which are supporting drugs such as anti-estrogens or acne drugs that help reduce the side effects of steroids.

plans on attending Thursday’s event. “I think it needs to be a top down and bottom up movement on all levels,” Blumenfeld said. He said that people need to be able to talk about inequities at the local level. Blumenfeld said young people organized the first social movements. “Young people want to have more voice in their own future. They’re the ones challenging to make government give freedom and liberty,” Blumenfeld said. According to the Occupy ISU Facebook page, “We are exiting our classes and work on the ISU campus at 12 p.m. and moving toward Lincoln Way. The more people that gather at once, the better! We will know who you are if you have a sign, so please hang it up high and proud. We will start marching towards Lincoln Way. We will not be assembling on ISU grounds, rather moving from campus to the community.” More Occupy ISU events may be decided during Thursday’s march.

Raised gas tax is needed for road care One proposal to fund infrastructure development in Iowa has been to raise the tax on gasoline by 10 cents per gallon. Economic activity depends on a good road system, to convey people and goods from market to market. Government investment in infrastructure is as capitalist as Adam Smith. Transportation systems are increasingly important, connecting us to international markets and those across America and every other part of Iowa. Construction may tax our nerves and cause traffic delays, but in a state with weather as diverse as ours, it is simply impossible to build roads that need little upkeep. Generally speaking, roads are funded by taxes on gasoline. The people who use roads pay for their upkeep, which is reasonably consistent with free-market principles: if you use it, you pay for it. Gas taxes in Iowa are currently 21 cents per gallon, making ours the 33rd-highest national rate. One estimate suggests that the increase on the 21 cents would raise $230 million, well over the estimated $215 million in annual additional funding needed to maintain our roads. The chairman of the Iowa Tea Party, Ryan Rhodes, is opposed to an increase. His objective is to get all 150 state legislators to pledge against raising the gas tax. Citing budget waste, Rhodes said that infrastructure needs could be addressed without raising the gas tax. But the most equitable way to fund something, especially using the capitalist frame of mind popular among members of the Tea Party, is to make its users or customers pay for it. Since the state government is charged with building and maintaining roads, taxes on gas equate to the user fees for it. Where there is a shortfall, those taxes must be raised the same way a business needs to raise prices once its profits become losses. One of Rhodes’ concerns was that Iowans cannot afford a tax increase. Prices at the pump, however, have risen in recent years as demand has also increased, even with increasingly fuel-efficient cars have come onto the market. Clearly Iowans, like people throughout the United States and all over the world, are paying up for a product they need. Profits by American oil companies, however, are outrageous. The idea that profits will be passed on to consumers as lower taxes is clearly in accurate. The first quarter of this year, Exxon Mobil posted a profit of $10.7 billion. Chevron profited $6.2 billion; and profits for ConocoPhillips were $3 billion. In our experience, we have not cut back on driving because of higher gas prices. They can go a dime higher.

Photo: Nicole Wiegand/Iowa State Daily Among the signs held by protestors at the Occupy Iowa rally at the Iowa State Capitol on Sunday, Oct. 9, were those embellished with the Twitter “hashtag” for the event: #OccupyIowa. Social media has been instrumental in organizing rallies across the country with organizers utilizing sites such as Twitter and Facebook, among several others.
‘Occupy’ needs leadership
do love a good media spectacle. One that has video and photos spinning out and about across newspapers, TV and Internet. What has my attention now is the Occupy Wall Street protest. At first it looked like a group of workedup folks wanting to take down the capitalist machine. But then the protest lasted more than a week and began looking like a movement. Well, it is shaping up to be a movement, what with it cropping up in cities across the country, but will this really prove to be anything more than a media spectacle in the end? The website for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has a petition up to show your support. OccupyWallSt. org offers a user map of cities participating and a place to donate that redirects you to the NYC General Assemblies page, a sketchy looking page to say the least. Adbusters.org was the most put together site working toward some organization for Occupy Wall Street, and it doesn’t even have the movement’s name in the title. Aside from those, when you search for Occupy Wall Street online, you get news articles and Facebook, Twitter and YouTube videos. What all these add up to is a lack of a page for general leadership. And leadership, including subsequent organization that comes from it, are what is needed to take this protest into the salient movement with the sticking power similar to the Tea Party. Yes, I’ve come out and said it, Occupy Wall Street needs to become a political organization of “the people” in a manner similar to the Tea Party, without being as corrupted and confused as the Tea Party, of course. But Occupy Wall Street protesters seem to be against the notion of establishing actual leadership. This makes sense with the “We are the 99 percent” message, but central leadership is needed. I’m not a historian, but I don’t know of
By Gabriel.Stoffa @iowastatedaily.com many world-changing movements that didn’t have a leader emerge and subsequently become an organization to gather funding and use the systems day in and day out to get the messages out. Occupy Wall Street needs coordinated efforts and people being paid or volunteering to do those jobs to continue on the level of growth that is happening. You need websites and other media to discover and read about sources that encourage the actual 99 percent of Americans to join. There must be an actual system to get more people involved and coordinated. Occupy Wall Street has a large youth base, which is a group notorious for saying they care and then not voting or going the extra mile. The other supporters run the gamut of what makes up the United States; celebrities and even some in the 1 percent of rich blokes have expressed interest and slight support. On FoxNews.com, as of Monday, there is a poll with almost 70 percent of people voting they support Occupy Wall Street. And still, there must be more. There must be leadership. There must be organization. There must be an actual formation of a group that can be readily identified as something more than a mass of protesters. This is America. For better or for worse, this country is now built on the idea that “There’s no business like show business,” because we desire heroes and stars and other exceptional people to step out from the average life to shine. Americans want exceptional people. Occupy Wall Street might be the 99 per-
cent, but from that must come individuals to allow rank and form to set into some degree to ensure that the voices of the people be heard. You can protest all the live-long day and accomplish little if the people you claim to represent aren’t fairly certain what you are actually protesting about. There are so many messages, and they are being tossed about or skewed by the media in ways that are serving mostly to entertain rather than educate. Occupy Wall Street must grow up a bit and become an at least semistructured movement with funding so the truth cannot be obfuscated by some of the very people it protests against. I’ll quote a “man of the people” from a movie I see as carrying some of the same messages of being a part of the 99 percent and wanting to live life free from tyranny; “Fight Club was the beginning, now it’s moved out of the basement, it’s called Project Mayhem.” Tyler Durden might not have had the best means of revolution — as in violence is rarely the answer, so do not partake in it protesters — but there was no questioning the message and the movement. Occupy Wall Street has moved out of New York and is now a part of the entire country. Folks all over are trying to rally behind a cause with no face. And maybe the Anonymous mask that has been popping up is a fine standard, but there must be leadership coordinating efforts. There must be a some fountainheads to represent the people of this republic if we are to actually believe in the message that we are the 99 percent. Without a head, we are a mob. But if real representatives come forward — leaders that aren’t owned by the 1 percent — when he/ she/they emerge, the protests across the nation will have someone to sit down and intelligently, expressively and coherently put forth the message so change can come in legal form.

Modern media face modern changes
Examine tech’s deep connection to communication
e’ve reached a point where technology is in favor of independent
people. The big three media of technology are audio, video and writing. Audio doesn’t have to be radio or music. It’s sound that we analyze. Video doesn’t have to be a TV show or movie. It’s merely a visual. Writing doesn’t have to be books or newspapers. It’s how thoughts and information are vastly shared and archived. They will all change, because how we use or need them will change. Audio was transformed with Napster and writing with the issue of information overload and reading devices for cheap and greater consumption, while video is still up in the air. The question is, why are these three media of communication changing in our society? A short answer would be that for once artists, writers and producers are seeing their power and control increase due to community outreach and the advancements
By Derek.Jensen @iowastatedaily.com made by companies such as Apple, Amazon and Google. Apple has innovated how consumers purchase their music with iTunes. Instead of always buying an entire album, you now have the ability to just purchase one song. Studies have actually shown that consumers will spend more over time when only purchasing individual songs versus entire albums. This action has brought shock to record companies by having to rethink their marketing strategy. Many are realizing that community outreach through technology and creating more of a fan base around the artist is crucially important. The music is practically selling itself. Shouldn’t this be the way music and the respected artists gather attraction and make money? Now, many aspiring artists can be on the same playing field as the major artists with major labels. Music is back, and Apple
truly has sparked the intuition for more creation. For writing, Amazon created the Kindle. The Kindle is merely the ultimate eBook reader that really brought an end to bookstores such as Borders. Barnes and Noble is still holding on, but they’ve put focus on competing against the Kindle with their Nook. The way we consume writing now comes at a higher rate and lower cost. Traditional publishing houses might still have their prestige in tact, but the fact that aspiring authors who have dreaded to go through the process of publishing their words can now bypass that, is special. I believe everyone that is willing to and wants to publish their thoughts that can be easily shared amongst many for a small monetary price deserves to be recognized and respected. Anyone deserves to have the ability to publish their thoughts with the ability for it to be shared. It’s changing to that way, but creativity and perseverance are needed to retain a respectable monetary reward. Lastly, the medium of video is the newest form of communication that our society has adopted. I’d even argue that video has been
the most addicting and rapidly changing medium amongst the three. YouTube has certainly been on the leading front for changing how video has inspired so many to share their thoughts, put together creative skits, start shows or just record something remarkable or entertaining. For the longest time, just like audio and writing, the big companies have controlled the message in that medium to some degree. Today that control has been put back into each independent person in the world. We should all be thanking companies like Apple, Amazon and Google (including YouTube) for putting the power and ability back into all of our hands. These three media are at the heart of the human race for communicating and sharing thoughts. Communication is essential with them. Some might be innovated more than others or be more in favor of the independent person but the essence of written word, voice and picture will be at the core, no matter what.

Meditate, communicate, and moderate for a change
’m asking you to use the weekend for self-reflection and consideration. A lot has happened these past weeks and months: Iowa State has a new President, cuts in funding and increases in tuition are at record highs, class sizes are larger than ever, and students have unprecedented debt. All the while the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements loom in the background. Things have happened quickly, key things that impact all of us, and as fast as they’re moving, they’re only gaining speed. In most cases it’s popular to be involved, to walk out, protest, or get arrested for your beliefs. But in most cases that’s all it is, popular. As students we shouldn’t consider what is popular but what is necessary, especially at Iowa State, where we can make the most difference. But sadly, we share few thoughts; those we do are rarely considered in depth. Thoughts and actions that form our futures and change our university are never given more than a passing thought. Take, for example, the student walk out today at noon. In many ways I imagine a scene from the movie “The Trotsky.” Students walk out to protest the school, but immediately begin texting, playing Frisbee, and socializing. No real statement will be made and no real power will be generated.
By Ryan.Peterson @iowastatedaily.com There is little to no effect in skipping class. Don’t walk out for the sake of walking out, and don’t walk out because your friends are going to. The walkout as an excuse to skip class isn’t a legitimate reason, either. Unlike “The Trotsky”, our walkout isn’t even protesting the school. I don’t believe our indignation is with the university, I believe something else has incited the students and the society at large. This is something people can’t seem to identify and have no resolutions for. What we have instead is something we saw around us and joined in, or something we held privately but never quite understood. What we have is intense levels of social activity that can be fun to participate in. However, it’s critical not to lose yourself in the torrent of energy. No matter what your position is, whether you plan to walkout or not, I’m asking you to consider, “What are the issues that impact me and Iowa State?” Take the weekend and use it for revitalization before
you act. Students are busy; between class, homework, extracurricular activities and socializing, we’re left little time to reflect on any one subject in depth. We’re constantly among a crowd of voices, in front of a television or tuned into a radio. We’re trained to do things quickly: teachers force us to read quickly, time tells us to move quickly and society demands quick decisions. Especially on the weekend when we binge on leisure and fun. The prospect of solitude and thought is less than appetizing. But it’s only one weekend, for a single block of time, for an issue important to us all. I’m not asking you to sacrifice your whole weekend, but invest a portion of it. Pray, meditate, walk or simply sit quietly for a few long periods of silence. And concentrate. Shut your phone off and find a place where you can think uninterrupted. Taking time to consolidate your mind is critical before you begin interacting with others. After a few long periods of consideration, try to write. Writing helps define your thoughts and clarify your points. Write about the biggest issues that affect you, explain why and elaborate. How do they effect Iowa State? Write a few solutions, what students should do, and defend your arguments

against others. At the end of a long weekend, I’d like you to write a letter to the paper. You’ve cleared your head, you’ve thought through a few problems, and you have a few possible solutions. Share them. If it’s action you seek, then let’s see you act. Unlike walking out, consider it personally and begin a discussion. If government is the problem, write about it.
If we need a more democratic system, write about it. If you’re worried about the militaryindustrial complex, let’s hear it. There is no power as great as a thousand individuals with independent letters. Privately take a weekend in solitude and reflection, spend a day preparing your point, and then let’s all take a week to see what comes of it. Write letters, and some will get printed,
others posted online. Read them, comment on them, and let’s act. Independently we have a voice, collectively we can use our voices to make one hell of a change relevant to our community.

Unite for international laws and one-world governments
n 2010 alone, the world spent $1.62 trillion on armed forces, according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, a top global think tank. There needs to be trust among nations and cooperation to focus on uprooting problems no one wants. Forming a central government that serves all nations not only can enforce regulations the large majority can agree on, but also can direct the flow of resources so that the most development can be made with the resources that is going into militia as of now. Instead of having a military, it would serve us better to have global law enforcement. The U.S. Department of Defense’s budget for fiscal year 2011 is $548.9 billion, whereas that of the U.S. Department of Justice is $29.2 billion. A city is better as a part of a state because a state government has a larger pool of ideas to choose from that are refined by feedback from more people. It also fosters acceptance and love for people of a larger spectrum of cliques, beliefs or traditions. The same formula applies to countries. Currently there are 112 countries that have a form of republic government, including the United States, 51 with a form of democracy, 5 communist countries and 23 monarchies, according to “The World Factbook” by the CIA. Just as states retain some sovereignty, so can countries under a central government which would oversee regulations the majority of the global population want such as providing protection and education to children for a brighter future. Also, with national economies affecting each other, it makes sense for there to be an overarching leadership that helps accelerate the worldwide economy. Officials from around the world can come together and make a constitution, with which a large majority would be satisfied, which can be found out with votes and surveys from indi-

Instead of tossing resources, such as money, time and labor of army personnel, into violence and creating a hazard for citizens, politicians and officials can talk things through and come to resolutions, kind of like parents or teachers. Government should seek to protect public safety, health and welfare of all people. One way to end mass destruction is by having common safety laws, which can be regulated by one government. Increasing transparency of government and places such as scientific research facilities can help ensure security of citizens. It’s not us versus other countries, it’s us versus destructive organizations such as the al-Qaida and Lord’s Resistance Army (a religious military unit from Uganda and Southern Sudan), mismanagement that crumbles the economy, outdated rules that can be overcome by debating and coming up with better ideas, acts of hate, drug addiction, ignorance and illiteracy. Once upon a time, a government run by the masses would have been a notion not thought possible, but here we are with an organized system that most people favor and keeps flourishing. Let’s work toward a better future. Check out the online poll: “How long do you think it will take to have a united world government?” to vote and find out what people are estimating.

Theo Epstein agrees to deal with Cubs CHICAGO — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein has agreed to a contract with the Chicago Cubs. The person says compensation issues must be worked out before the deal is finalized. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday night because there has not been an announcement. Epstein would leave the Red Sox with a year remaining on his contract as general manager and take over what is expected to be an expanded role with the Cubs, who have gone 103 years without a World Series championship. The Associated Press
In NBA dispute money does not matter NEW YORK (AP) — NBA owners apparently weren’t bluffing when they said they wanted competitive balance just as much as a chance to profit. Though Commissioner David Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver have insisted throughout the lockout they needed the potential for both in a new collective bargaining agreement, there was often a belief — even from players — that money mattered most. Yet it was the salary cap system, not the division of revenues, that emerged as the biggest obstacle to a new labor deal in time to save the start of the regular season. “The numbers are close enough that that wasn’t going to doom the season. The hard salary cap is what’s going to doom the season right now,” players’ attorney Jeffrey Kessler said Monday. “That’s the sticking point, because the numbers are close enough that if there was a fair system, the parties would find a way to get there.” It was clear the union believed management was prioritizing the financial picture when Fisher said afterward that “if we can address these economics, we’re not going to lose the season over the system. So that’s something that’s been clear from the beginning and will remain from our perspective.” The split was never settled, but both sides say they see where compromise could be reached. Players had proposed lowering their guarantee of basketball revenues from 57 percent down to 53, which they said would transfer more than $1 billion to owners over six years. But in doing so, they expected something in return. “I think where our paths separate is that they believe to the extent they’re willing to make economic concessions that we should be willing to leave the current system largely intact, and our view is that the current system is broken in that 30 teams are not in a position to compete for championships,” Silver said Monday after the league canceled the first two weeks of the regular season.

Cyclones meet media By Dan.Tracy @iowastatedaily.com
Fred Hoiberg admitted on Monday that there were no expectations at this time last year as he prepared to begin his tenure as head coach of the ISU men’s basketball team. What a difference one year can make. In their second year under Hoiberg, the Cyclones will tip off their regular season in just under a month. In a handful of pre-season publications the Cyclones (16-16, 3-13 in the Big 12 in 2010) have been predicted to finish anywhere from 7th to 9th among the ten teams in the Big 12 conference. However, the belief around Ames, primarily from season tickets sales which sold out on July 21, is that the Cyclones have the talent to return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2005. “Hopefully we can live up to the expectations but I understand where certain people have questions about this team, I still have questions about this team,” Hoiberg said on Monday at the team’s annual media day.
The team traveled to Italy in August where they played four Italian teams, winning their games by an average of 57.8 points. The team developed Christopherson chemistry, but the teams they will face in the states will definitely be more challenging than those the Cyclones played overseas. “One thing I Allen would have loved to see with this group is how we handle a tight situation,” Hoiberg said. “If adversity jumps up and hits us, which it will hit us pretty White quickly, I can promise you that we are going to handle that, and I didn’t see that because of the competition that we played over in Italy, but I’m excited about where we’re at right now.”
In trying to prove themselves, the Cyclones will have to replace three starters from 2010, most notably point guard Diante Garrett, the conference leader in assists last season and the all-time leader in games played at Iowa State (128). “I don’t know,” Hoiberg said when asked about the status of the point guard position. “Obviously the biggest thing we’re going to have to replace is our point guard ... this year it’s going to be a lot of point guard by committee.” Hoiberg mentioned several players, including, redshirt sophomore Royce White, as ones who could be the point guard position this season. White, a 6’8 270 lb. redshirt sophomore, hasn’t played a game in college yet but already the coaches of the conference have taken notice voting him as the Big 12 preseason newcomer of the year. “I think that anything that we set our minds to and buy into as a collective group, we can achieve,” White said. “Our short-term goal game to game is to win every game and long-term is to not lose a game, so whatever comes from that is what comes from that.”
Allen will carry his experience at Big 10 powerhouse Michigan State to an Iowa State team hoping to finish near the top of the Big 12 conference. “The little things are what’s going to get us there,” Allen said. “Like at Michigan State we always did the little things. That’s why we always went to the [NCAA] tournament; we always were at the top because we always did the little things.” With more depth and experience on the roster, Hoiberg hopes that his second team will be able to play a fast-paced type of basketball that will entertain the fans that are able to get their hands on a ticket. “Our goal will be to be one of the leading scorers in the Big 12 conference, and with our personnel if we’re knocking down shots, we’ll be a pretty tough team to stop,” Hoiberg said. The Cyclones will play a closed scrimmage against a to-be-determined Division I team in two weeks, then an exhibition game at home against Grand Valley State at 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 6 and then the regular season opener at Hilton Coliseum at 1 p.m. on Nov. 12.
Club set to compete Cyclones use week to rest
By Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com Since its inception, the ISU wrestling club had always been just talk. But after finally hitting the mats, the members are now ready to begin competing for the first time. While the club was founded in 2006, with no facility available to use on campus, the group simply talked about getting things going and occasionally got together to work out. “They got together and did some weight-lifting, some conditioning and talking about wrestling, but nobody actually wrestled until the end of last spring semester,” said Zach Byrnes, club president and ISU senior. After several years of no actual practices and no wrestling on mats, the club finally took a big step forward last spring when it began renting out the wrestling room at Odgen High School. With a 30-minute drive each way to practice and with rental fees to use the facility, the move was not perfect for the club. But with Byrnes’ eyes set on the club joining the National Collegiate Wrestling Association for competitions this fall, it was a necessary move. “We started wrestling over at Odgen and had a few practices just to kind of get some faith built up in everybody,” Byrnes said. “So they

knew we were actually going to be competing this year.” The club held a few practices in Odgen during the spring semester before having discussions with personnel at Ames High School in the summer. Those talks led the wrestling club to its most recent home in the Ames High School wrestling room. “After some meetings with the Ames High athletic director and wrestling coach, we finally hashed out a deal,”
Byrnes said. After many years of talking, they finally are ready for competition.

As the ISU volleyball team approaches the midway point of its Big 12 schedule, having a week without a match is a welcomed break. The No. 16 Cyclones (14-3, 5-1 Big 12) have played at least two matches a week since their season began on Aug. 26 and will now try to slow down during their off week. “I think we’re tired. We will enjoy this bye week,” said ISU coach Christy Johnson-Lynch “We’re going to try to just rest and recover this week. I’ve learned that as much as you want to go and keep pushing, there comes a time where more isn’t going to be better.” One player JohnsonLynch mentioned that she felt would benefit from the rest was senior outside hitter Carly Jenson, who leads the team with 3.83 kills per set. Jenson has already racked up 610 kill attempts this season and as that number goes up, so does the toll on the Omaha, Neb., native’s legs. “We won’t have her jump very much and get her some rest,” JohnsonLynch said of Jenson.
“When you see C a r l y starting to hit the tape a little bit Johnsonon her atLynch tack, that tells me she’s tired and needs a break.” In Saturday’s win over Oklahoma, sophomore middle blocker Tenisha Matlock had one of her best performances as a Cycylone with 13 kills while hitting at a .357 clip. Matlock also registered two solo blocks and four block assists, but said that toward the end, she could feel some fatigue setting in. “There were some pretty long rallies. There were some times when I would jump and couldn’t,” Matlock said after the Oklahoma match. Middle blocker Jamie Straube said when opposing offenses set both outside hitters, it wears down the defense. “When they set each way a lot, then I feel like I’m running back and forth a lot because middles are usually jumping every play,” Straube said. The Cyclones’ next match will be Saturday at Hilton Coliseum against Baylor at 6:30 p.m.

Newcomer highlights Iowa State’s recent play Freshman Daley shows best finish yet in tournament By Brian.Spaen @iowastatedaily.com

Season end creates ‘do or die’ mentality By Cory.Weaver @iowastatedaily.com The ISU soccer team has gotten off to a rough start in the Big 12 this season, going winless in its first four conference games. With just five games left, four being conference matchups, midfielder Emily Goldstein said it’s a must-win situation from here on out. “We’re just looking at these games now, and it’s either do or die for us,” Goldstein said. “We just need to make sure that we know what we have ahead of us with these last conference games and that we need to win in order to make it to the Big 12 conference tournament.” The top eight of the nine teams in the Big 12 advance to the conference tournament at the end of the season. Last year, the final two teams to advance had four conference wins each and with four conference games left, senior co-captain Emily Hejlik said there’s nowhere to go but up. “We’ve had opportunities, even against the No. 2 team in the country [Oklahoma State], we were neck-andneck with them,” Hejlik said. “So I think really focusing on finishing our opportunities is the main difference between us winning and losing so far. We just need to play like we have nothing to lose, because we don’t.” Iowa State faced undefeated Oklahoma State last Friday and lost 1-0 on a last-second goal. Similarly, the Cyclones were unable to convert on several opportunities in a 2-0 loss to Baylor on Sunday. However, Goldstein believes staying positive will help turn that around in the final stretch. “I feel like when we get in the box and we miss, we put our heads down and we just get too down on ourselves, and we’re like ‘ugh, I’m never going to score now,’” Goldstein said. “We just need to make that we need to keep firing shots and you’re not going to make every shot but when you do have the opportunity, we need to make sure that we’re putting it away or putting ourselves in a good position to where we can put that away.” After the Baylor loss, coach Wendy Dillinger had some words of encouragement for the players regarding looking toward the final stretch of the season. “If we can go out and play
the way we did against Oklahoma State on Friday, there’s no reason we Hejlik can’t go out and play like that every game,” Dillinger said. “And if we do, we’re going to get results. But Dillinger we’re young and I just told them it’s time to understand that that can’t be a factor anyStewart more, and we have to step up and perform.” On the defensive end, one reason the Cyclones were able to keep it so close against Oklahoma State was containing the Cowgirls’ star player, Krista Lopez, and only had a few mental lapses against Baylor which allowed the Bears to score twice within five minutes. However, defensive cohesiveness should help improve that as they move forward. “I think the big thing is just working together as a unit,” said sophomore defender Jessica Stewart. “That’s something that we’ve been focusing on a lot this year.” Hejlik and fellow senior Mary Kate McLaughlin have yet to make it to the Big 12 tournament since coming to
Iowa State, and Stewart said it is obvious they do not want to leave on a losing note. “They don’t want to go out with a losing season; they want to go out going to Big 12s and making a statement for Iowa State soccer and for themselves, for their class,” Stewart said. “Their heart and their passion is just to see us succeed because they know that we can. So they just want to see us put a consistent effort on the field because they know that we’ll have results.” The Cyclones face Oklahoma on the road Friday at 7 p.m. before getting a break from the conference matchups against Southeast Missouri State on Sunday at 1 p.m. Iowa State then takes on Texas Tech and Kansas the following weekend before finishing the regular season on the road against Missouri. If all goes according to plan, that game will carry quite a bit of significance.
Another freshman golfer is emerging for the Cyclones. Back-to-back champions freshman Scott Fernandez and senior Nate McCoy finished in the top 10 overall in the Firestone Invitational. They both finished at 211 and 212 strokes, but coach Andrew Tank said he could have seen better scores from his players. “Nate’s ball striking was about as high as it was in the previous tournament,” Tank said. “He didn’t make as many putts, so his score wasn’t as low.” Without the early struggles in the round, Fernandez could have also seen a better score. “I was impressed with how Scott birdied his last four holes,” Tank said. “He was hitting the ball well but he wasn’t making putts, so he was frustrated through his whole round.” Both players weren’t the only ones who were at the top of the leader board. Three Cyclones finished in the top 12. Freshman Sam Daley is coming off of his best tournament so far, finishing at 214 strokes and tied for 12th place overall in the Firestone Invitational. He opened the first day with a round of 70 strokes. Overcoming some struggles in the second round in the first day, Daley was able to revive his tournament score in the final round. “Sam also hit the ball well and made some putts,” Tank said. “I was really proud of how he came back today after shooting five over [in the second round] and then shot a five under.” Daley has participated in each tournament so far this fall. His hometown is Wynnum, Australia, where he was ranked third among all the Australian junior golfers. “Normally my pitching and choke down is pretty good,” Daley said. “My putting is normally good but it’s been off lately.” The final round was big contrast to his second round, where his 67 strokes were his best he’s done in one round. “I hit three bad shots which cost me five strokes,” Daley said. “My coaches told me to remain patient. I was seeing the ball well and my game was in a good spot. With that patience it helped me shoot a

pretty good [final] round.” Daley has had his struggles in parts of his game, but will work on them in the upcoming practices as the team gets ready for its final tourna-
ment of the fall season at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate in Greensboro, N.C. “Putting and driving are going to be a more consistent thing,” Daley said.

Blast! performs at ISU By Alex Smith Ames247 Writer
Bright lights, passionate movement, enticing music and unspoken stories. This is no ordinary music performance. It’s the high-energy 2001 Tony and Emmy award-winning show, “Blast.” Blast, a primarily percussion band, will perform at Stephens Auditorium on Friday. “It’s not just people up on the stage, breaking into song,” said Jean Heasley, a musician and color guard member of the show. Instead, the show has a mixture of classical, blues, jazz, rock n’ roll and techno-pop music. The musicians and visual artists all play drums at some point in the show, and all performers play more

precise ... If you’re a fan of college or high-school marching bands, you’re going to be a fan of this show.” In 1985, the group started as “The Star of Indiana Drum and Bugle Corps.” In 1994, the group began experimenting with theater and in 1999, it opened the show it is currently performing. In performances, the Blast group
shows emotions and stories through music and movement, appealing to numerous senses at once. In the current show, for example, the songs are each assigned a different color to show the mood of the music. Along with its tour, the group is also currently holding auditions. Participants can visit the Blast website to find the audition link and submit a video. To any musician interested in auditioning, Heasley advised to “put everything on [the video] that you possibly can.” Heasley said the music in a Blast performance varies from show-toshow, and the music can make audience members feel many emotions. “My goal is just to share myself and my music and our show,” Heasley said.

When Joe Summers started his first band in high school, it was only for fun. But years later, he has shared stages with bands like All Time Low, Mayday Parade and Motion City Soundtrack. Now Summers is offering his new release, “Make A Move”, for free download online. The material was presented live Tuesday at People’s Court in Des Moines when Summers’ band opened for Taking Back Sunday. The band will open again at People’s Court Monday for alt-rock giant Yellowcard. “If I can inspire one person to do something good with their lives or change someone’s bad mood into a good one, I know that I’ve done my job,” Summers said. “I thoroughly enjoy writing music. I’m not about selling the most records.” Until last fall, Summers, junior in design, was making a name for himself in the local scene with his band Classic in the Making. After leaving the band, he released a solo EP. Joshua Alex, sophomore in liberal studies, has known Summers since he began writing music. Alex, who toured as a guitar technician for three years before beginning college, said Summers had what it took to make it as an artist. “When I first I heard his
Concert When: Monday, Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. What: Yellowcard, Every Avenue, & Go Radio w/ Joe Summers Band Where: People’s Court, Des Moines Cost: $20 song ‘Down’, I was blown away,” Alex said. “I thought then and there it could be a No. 1 hit on any Top 40 radio station.” Summers has had a taste of success with his new act, playing to soldout crowds for All Time Low and Mayday Parade in August. He enjoys the large crowds, and said “I have to be on stage, I’m completely comfortable.” Alex said Summers had a confident stage presence and a quirky sense of humor to help him along. He is establishing a fan base locally, utilizing social media to spread his music. Summers is excited to write with new band mates in future releases, though he is also excited to play his solo material. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a name in VEISHEA next year,” Alex said. “You’ll see a lot more about him.”

Michael Bagby, senior in piano performance and vocal education, plays piano for the Statesmen and sings in the Iowa State Singers. In addition, he plays at his church and for other events off campus.
Q: When did you start playing? A: I started taking lessons when I was six, but my mom likes to say how when I was three years old, our little Fisher Price keyboard, I played the Kit Kat theme.
A: That can vary. I can do almost six hours, which is barely scrapping the bottom of what I should be practicing when things get busy. And otherwise, I can force myself to practice four hours a day.
Q: Is it ever a challenge?

‘Polyphonic’ artistry By Vincent Geerts Ames247 Writer
In the west wall of the Music Hall lobby, a new work of art has taken residence. The oil painting, “Polyphonic Abstraction” by Bill Barrett, will be dedicated with a performance from the Ames Piano Quartet on Sunday. In a free show at the Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall, the quartet will perform “PointCounterpoint”, which was influenced by and commissioned specifically for the painting’s dedication. Dr. Michael Golemo, chairman of the department of music, said they were honored to have it displayed in Music Hall. “When I first saw it, I thought it looked spectacular,” Golemo said. “It has a musical title, and a perfect home in Music Hall.” In honor of the artwork, ISU Museums and the department of music set out to commission music for the painting. Golemo said Jeffrey Prater was the immediate choice. Prater instructed music theory and composition for 33 years at Iowa State, composing more than 80 pieces during the time. He said “Point-Counterpoint” was inspired by his own interpretation of the new painting. “In the same way I perceive the artist to have morphed traditional symbols into contemporary abstractions, I took traditional forms and overlaid those with more modern harmonic treatments,” Prater said. Prater also said he is excited for the dedication. It will be the first time he and the artist meet. Golemo is also looking forward to the event, complimenting the Ames Piano Quartet for a great following and wellattended shows. “They are an outstanding group,” Golemo said. “This is a really unique combination of [visual] art and music.”
A: I was able to perform at Carnegie Hall with our high school choir. I had a deal that I accompanied a few pieces for them and we were the opener to John Angotti’s portion of the concert. They invited a lot of people to come and sing ... And so I had three minutes that I was able to play one of my compositions on the piano, and then directed the a capella choir in a 30 second piece I wrote.
Q: What do you love the most about music?
Q: How many hours a week do you spend practicing?
Q: Have you won any recent awards or achievements?
A: It’s fun. I can come back to it every day, and whether I enjoy practicing a specific piece or not, there’s always something I enjoy about practice.
Q: Do you have a favorite artist? A: I like Van Cliburn. He’s a pianist that was extraordinary and well-known for just a few of his pieces that boosted him into the performance world ... He said in an interview one time that it’s not about how the performer interprets the piece, it’s how you relate that interpretation to something the audience can enjoy.

Anthropologist David Frayer studies the relationship between Neanderthals and subsequent European populations. He has published on topics ranging from Neanderthal toothpick use to evidence for human massacres in the German Mesolithic to evidence for language origins. His current projects include the Croatian Neanderthal site of Krapina; the dental anthropology of an early, pre-ceramic Neolithic site in Pakistan; and the so-called “hobbit” from Flores, Indonesia. Frayer earned his PhD from the University of Michigan and is a professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Kansas.

The Tami Tango Trio is traveling from Argentina to Iowa State. The group will be demonstrating the tango with both music and dance, and the performance will feature the flute, guitar and piano. The group’s leader, Eduardo Tami, began his musical life by playing the piano, and then transitioned to the flute when he was 17. He has been composing and recording music for over 30 years. Tami has now been with the trio for 10 years. He said he joined the group because the flute is “like a whistle” and needs different instruments to compliment it and add harmonies. “[Within the group,] it is very important to have good musicians. And not only good musicians, but good people,” Tami said. Tami added that it helps to have many different elements in a performance, like dancers and a singer, to help fully convey the tango to the audience. “The dancers will make it more fun [for students],” Tami said. Janice Baker, assistant
professor in dance, agrees dance will be important to the performance. She said the Argentinian tango is a good example of how cultures around the world directly link dancing to music being played. “[Thursday’s performance] is a grand opportunity to experience how dance and music historically go hand in hand,” Baker said. “Endorsing the dances of other cultures helps to build relationships.” Michael Golemo, Chair of the department of music and director of bands, is also looking forward to the performance. “There’s just no substitute for live music, no matter how good a CD or DVD is,” Golemo said. “The music faculty feel it’s important for the students to experience other styles other than traditional Western music.” For even more tango experience, students are also encouraged to attend the Tango History Lecture from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and the Open Tango Dance Class from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday in 196 B, Forker Building. “I’m very happy to come and bring a little bit of our culture to you,” Tami said.
