Sisterhood strengthened Sorority fundraises for lupus research By Alayna.Flor Sisterhood is usually thought of as the childhood bond of two girls with the same blood and same set of parents, but the Kappa Delta sisterhood is much different. It’s their individual qualities and hardships they overcome together that makes them quite the untypical sisterhood. One member knows from experience. “In September of 2007, I was diagnosed with lupus. I ended up having to take a semester off of school in order to go home for treatment,” said Katy Kramp, president of Kappa Delta. “Although I was in this fight by myself, my sisters in their true

spirit weren’t going to sit back and do nothing, which is where “Grilled Cheese with the KDs” was created,” Kramp said. Each year, all chapters of the greek community put on philanthropy events for a cause of their choice. Kappa Delta sisters changed their philanthropy to raise money for the Lupus Foundation, in honor of their sister Katy, and hosted Grilled Cheese With the KDs. “When she got sick, we decided to raise the money for her. It was a big deal that the whole house showed her how strong of a sisterhood she had,” said Sara Schlueter, philanthropy chairwoman of Kappa Delta and sophomore in pre-journalism and mass communication. “Grilled cheese is simple and really good. It’s an easy way to get a lot of people to come to our philanthropy,” Schlueter said. “Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any

part of the body, and the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years,” according to the Lupus Foundations website. Lupus makes it very difficult for anyone with it to fight off even the common cold, and there is no cure for it. “We raise money for the Lupus Foundation because lupus is something that effects a lot of people and because we do it in honor of our sister,” Schlueter said. “This is something close to home and personal. It shows how much

how we really care.” This year will be the fourth year that Kappa Delta holds its grilled cheese event. They are working harder each year to make it bigger than the last. The ladies have raised $6,000 so far and aim to make this year a huge success. “With the efforts of Kappa Delta raising money toward the research, hopefully someday soon they will know more about this disorder,” Kramp said. “Each member of our chapter is personally invested in this philanthropy seeing as it impacts them everyday having a sister dealing with lupus.” The event will take place Thursday night, and patrons can buy tickets for $5 at the door, or $4 beforehand from a member. “There will be a DJ and a grilled



Students advocate sustainability By Elisse.Lorenc A variety of student organizations gathered together Wednesday at the free speech zone for National Campus Sustainability Day. Engineers who participated in the event have been working on various projects including a solar water heater. “The main goal is to be able to use it as a water heater on campus and during the winter, heat it up and make hot chocolate,” said Owen Mayer, sophomore in mechanical engineering. Other projects include an

electrical motorcycle that participants want to create a rechargeable, wind-powered turbine for that will help charge the bike overtime. The group plans to experiment with the idea of door power. “We’re experimenting with the energy it takes to open a door if we can hook a generator up to it at all. Every time a door gets opened, it gets a little resistance and hopefully creates enough charge to power something,” Mayer said.

The ISU women’s basketball season begins Nov. 4, with an exhibition game against Minnesota State, Mankato. The next night, Nov. 5, the ISU men are set to open their season against the University of Dubuque. But a great deal of work still needs to be done for Hilton Coliseum to be fully recovered for those games to be played on the Cyclones’ home court. “We’re hopeful that we’re going to be able to return to Hilton on the first week of November,” said Steve Malchow, ISU senior associate athletic director for communications. “We fully expect to meet that schedule.” Work has been ongoing in Hilton since flooding filled the building with more than 10 feet of water Aug. 11. Malchow said work at the facility is evaluated and tested daily to ensure the new equipment being installed is functional and that the facility will be safe for teams and fans at games. There are tests, walkthroughs or evaluations scheduled nearly every day from now until just one day before the Cyclones’ first game, and any “major issue” in the process can throw the schedule off entirely. “We fully anticipate opening,” Malchow said. “But we can’t say with 100 percent certainty until we go through each of these tests, evaluations, walkthroughs and approvals.” Nick Britton, assistant athletic director of event management, has been



GSB adds harassment to resolution By Michaela. Sickmann Imagine you’re 12 years old. You’re scared and confused. For some reason you seem different from everybody else, even though externally you’re the same. Your friends are talking about their weekend and how they’re hoping to get a girlfriend, but you, for some reason, don’t want the same. You are attracted to the same sex. This is the story of Jacob Wilson, junior in political science. He doesn’t remember when he knew, he just realized he wasn’t attracted to women. “I can’t even really think of the exact moment, but being 12 years old, a lot of my friends were starting to talk to girls and I realized I don’t have that attraction at all,” Wilson said. “It’s really scary and I didn’t want to be different, especially in grade school; people are vicious. Your peers are vicious even for little things like having a certain lunch box or wearing a certain T-shirt, let alone for something grand and crazy as being attracted to someone of the same sex.”

The Vatican expressed “surpriseâ€? that its appeal had been rejected and stood by its position that the investigation was the result of a misunderstanding. Italian prosecutors last month froze Vatican Bank transactions for the ďŹ rst time ever, after the bank failed to provide all the information required by antimoney laundering rules.

Yoga serves as proven stress, anxiety reducer By Lea.Petersen Between studying for exams, ďŹ nishing projects and preparing for Homecoming Week, students may feel a bit spread-thin. However, yoga can help ease the stress. Amy Welch, assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State, said exercise has positive effects on human health â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been documented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perceived stress reduction has been documented after one yoga session, and a number of experiments have shown it to have positive effects on chronic stress â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both psychological and physiological indicators â&#x20AC;&#x201D; anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and mild clinical depression,â&#x20AC;? Welch said. The controlled breathing aspect of yoga plays a key role in stress management.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Yoga breathing] has been shown to engage the parasympathetic nervous system, which overrides the sympathetic nervous system â&#x20AC;&#x201D; i.e., the one responsible for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stress response.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; There is also some indication that this kind of breathing, when practiced frequently, optimizes heart rate variability, which has been linked to better cardiovascular health and lower levels of depression and anxiety,â&#x20AC;? Welch said. Claire Kruesel, graduate in biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology, has been a yoga instructor for three years. She said even on the busiest of days, yoga helps her calm down and reconnect with herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yoga helps me tune into the internal processes of my body â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things that tend to get drowned out during everyday life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and also provides a ritual that can really be calming, like if you know you need to relax, but you

canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of the process,â&#x20AC;? Kruesel said. Both Welch and Kruesel personally choose yoga for stress release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ďŹ rst started practicing yoga about three years ago as a way to manage my stress levels. One of the things that I think is so great about yoga from a psychological standpoint: It forces you to just slow down and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;beâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for a while,â&#x20AC;? Welch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always feel more focused after yoga. I feel worn-out and tired and sore in a really good way,â&#x20AC;? Kruesel said.

Chief technologist says aerospace has bright future By Ben.Theobald Robert Braun, NASA chief technologist, spoke Wednesday at the Alliant Energy-Lee Liu Auditorium in Howe Hall about the future of human space travel and new technologies for NASA and the ďŹ eld of aerospace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get a lot of energy, and I thrive on being on university campuses,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. Braun met with students working on a number of hands-on engineering and design activities at the aerospace engineering school, as well as many other schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very impressive to see some of the work being done here on campus by students,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. Braun told students that there is a place in aerospace, more speciďŹ cally NASA, for them in the future. He encouraged students to

follow their dream, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working on a low-emissions aircraft or sending humans to Mars, and to let it take you wherever it takes you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very hard to predict your future 5 or 10 years from now,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you stay focused on what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re passionate about, I guarantee it will work out,â&#x20AC;? he said. Braun became the chief technologist this year, and he is the only chief technologist NASA has had in the past decade. In that time, NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention to research and technology fell, along with their engagement with university campuses. Braun discussed the changes the Obama administration has made to NASA, including increases to its budget, something very positive for the ďŹ eld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An increase in the budget means more jobs that are

NASA-focused and more university research,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. The national investment in NASA is $100 billion during ďŹ ve years. The top line increase is $6 billion during ďŹ ve years. Braun said there has been talk of a commercial industry to take over human space ďŹ&#x201A;ight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can actually be all of us doing human space ďŹ&#x201A;ight,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be government only.â&#x20AC;? Braun ended his lecture emphasizing the beneďŹ ts the human space program holds.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;These investments are important because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen them pay off in my short career,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know they can pay off in your career,â&#x20AC;? he said. The federal government

cares about research, technology and innovation, Braun said. The government believes investments in research and technology will stimulate the economy, build a high-tech

work force to create jobs, create global economic competitiveness for our nation and create new businesses and industries as this nation moves forward in a global marketplace, Braun said.

Thursday, October 21, 2010 Editors: Jason Arment & Edward Leonard opinion Iowa State Daily



Dead Week should involve rest, not work During the next few weeks, the Government of the Student Body will hold a committee to discuss the merits and flaws of the Dead Week idea. Dead Week, for those who don’t know, is the week before finals. The idea behind it is that this week is to be set aside to prepare and begin studying for final exams. Under the current system, during Dead Week, all students in the dorms are encouraged to keep quiet for most of the day with the exception of a “rowdy hour” during which they still can’t actually get that rowdy. The rest of the time, in theory, they should be studying and working and generally preparing for the tests to come. All student clubs, activities and organizations are to stop holding meetings to allow students more time to study. Teachers, lecturers, professors, etc. are encouraged to let up on homework, projects and exams during Dead Week and instead have a week of review in order to help students be better prepared for their finals. Most of this makes sense. So why does GSB want to change it? It’s not strong enough. Luke Roling, GSB president, said, “Current policies in place on the ISU website suggest actions that can be taken during Dead Week that outline things course instructors should try to avoid during the designated week.” The key word there is “should.” Many professors do not do this, and instead burden their students with “projects, smaller exams and other such items throughout Dead Week,” Roling said, which keeps students from doing the final-specific studying Dead Week was supposed to encourage. This serves to increase student stress levels and generally makes us all unhappy people all the way through to Finals Week. It also has a negative impact on student performance at finals. So what’s going to be done to correct this problem? “GSB would like to see the language in dead week policy re-examined and tightened to better protect students,” Roling said. We may not ever see a policy so strong as to forbid projects and due-dates during Dead Week; some professors have course material that requires some projects be due at the end of Dead Week in order to give students adequate time. However, we could see new legislation to increase transparency about what is expected of students during Dead Week by their professors. The current idea is to require professors to outline in the syllabus given out the first week what assignments and projects will be due during Dead Week. We would like to see professors entirely forego tests and last-minute exams during Dead Week. As students, most of us study for one test at a time in a given class. If there are no tests during Dead Week, the test to study for, by default, will be the final, and this would certainly make us happier — we think the majority of the student body would be inclined to agree. So this editorial board would like to see Roling and the GSB lead the way in making Dead Week easier on students. We’d love it if professors would cut us just a bit of slack during the last week before their finals, instead of pushing new material on us all the way through to the bitter end. It could be that we’re just lazy, but we like to think that we can, for one week, push ourselves to study on our own.

Critical thinking is intelligence By Victor.Hugg


t is common to erroneously establish a causal link between school and learning. The widely accepted perception in our society is that people go to school to learn. Yet school is often oversimplified as a mere errand to complete, nothing but an incessant chore. In high school, widespread apathy is prevalent among both students and teachers. Students are legally obligated to attend, and uninterested teachers are bound by a contract. Teaching in this environment is nothing more than the mere dissemination of information with little or no involvement from the student. This unconcerned attitude permeates the student populace within the college framework, where the deliberations of original ideas are systematically eliminated in an attempt to suppress any dissent toward orthodox thought. Innovative thoughts or fresh opinions are deemed contemptible. The demand for excellence in academics has been accentuated to the point where society blindly accepts it as a core value. Earning the proverbial “gold star” for attaining a high grade point average or standardized test score is viewed as desirable. When forced into this rigid and unyielding system, true intellect stands out to an intense degree. Learning is introspection and critical thinking, not the memorization and subsequent retention of trivial facts, or how to perform mechanical operations. The difference between an “intelligent” individual and a “smart” one is drastic. A smart individual is able to absorb and memorize an exorbitant level of details, facts, and processes. To these individuals,

learning is the acquisition of new information. They do not question what is presented to them, but instead take what is given as fact. They blindly accept the knowledge of others and their experiences, thoughts, and convictions. To put it succinctly, they let others think for them. In stark contrast, someone intelligent would sternly analyze all information presented to them. An intelligent person balances the information gained through traditional academic means with the knowledge and wisdom gained through their own experiences. Intelligent individuals take the anecdotes of others lightly, and do not allow the influences of others affect their own presuppositions. Tersely stated, they think for themselves. An open-minded thinker should take pleasure in vigorous debate as a chance to gain insight into one’s own beliefs. The goal of discussion should not solely be to espouse one’s own opinions; it is an exercise in understanding oneself. By asking others of similar views how they have come to their conclusions, you will either see your own ideas reflected or find a new perspective on the issue. Being among other capable students gives one the chance to discuss ideologies in a lessbiased light. You are able to discover how your beliefs are supported, whether it be for its own merits or for the longevity of an opinion, which does not gave it veracity. Good discussions give one the chance to fully and authentically understand the thoughts of a detractor to an ideology that you value highly. You will either come to realize the strength of

your positions and have greater confidence in your identity, or you will realize that, by hearing out a proponent of a position you hold in contempt, that every issue is not black and white. You will walk away with a greater respect for and understanding of others’ beliefs. This way of thinking and outlook on self-reflection can be appreciated by all, regardless of present convictions.

Without personally experiencing the thoughts and feelings that naturally accompany inclusion in a community, one can only learn by memorizing trivial facts. This does nothing to facilitate the betterment of one’s intellect and, in turn, identity. Without identity, existence is meaningless. The value of learning facts and formulas is only brought out through developing new thinking skills.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect success against Taliban By Youssef.Hanna


fghan president Hamid Karzai conďŹ rmed Monday that his government has been holding talks with the Taliban, according to Voice of America news website; news that was praised by Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. envoy to the region. While this news sounds optimistic, the question is, why would people expect these talks to be a success? Why would Taliban stop ďŹ ghting and agree to be replaced with a democratic system? If we learned something from history, it is that no political system was ever replaced by another system willingly. When a political movement or system is substituting another one, regardless of whether the new system is liberating the people from a previous dictator or is a replacement of one dynasty of dictators with another one, the new system has to completely eliminate the previous system. For instance, Louis XVI

and his supporters were executed because there was no possible way they could be part of the new government in France established by the French Revolution, whose intention was to get rid of the monarchy lead by Louis XVI and his predecessors. Some people might argue that the U.S. has been ferociously ďŹ ghting Taliban for the last nine years in Afghanistan, so maybe after all this ďŹ ghting Taliban is ďŹ nally convinced to give up. The U.S. recently launched an offensive in Kandahar based on this hope. The bet is that the Kandahar operation, backed by thousands of U.S. troops and billions of dollars, will break the mystique and morale of the insurgents, turn the tide of the war and validate the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Afghanistan strategyâ&#x20AC;&#x161; which should allow withdrawal of troops to happen as planned to be in July 2011. It seems that the Kandahar offensive was a success, as the negotiations are now on their

way, and everything seems to be going according to the plan. Then what is the problem? Well the main problem is U.S. troops, sooner or later, are leaving Afghanistan. For all the wars whose goal was to substitute one political system with another, the leaders of the new systems were eliminating the old systems leaders and supporters only to stay and rule the conquered land. This by no means is happening in Afghanistan. First, the Taliban are not eliminated; in fact, Taliban is gaining more grounds in Afghanistan. In November 2007, the London-based Senlis Council, estimated that the Taliban maintained a permanent presence in 54 percent of Afghanistan, and continued to exert inďŹ&#x201A;uence on regions outside the central governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sphere of control, predominantly in southern and eastern provinces. By December 2008, the Taliban had expanded its sphere of inďŹ&#x201A;uence to 72 percent of the country. In May 2009, 97

percent of Afghanistan had substantial Taliban activity. Secondly, the pressure imposed on the Taliban caused by the crackdowns of U.S. troops on the insurgents supposedly causing the leaders to give up and agree on peace talks are eventually going to end when the troops leave. There is absolutely no guarantee the now supposedly suppressed Taliban will ďŹ nd anyone to suppress it after the U.S. leaves. So, if you read more news in the future about peace talks with Taliban, or maybe that Taliban signed peace treaties or even that no more bloodshed is happening in Afghanistan, you may rejoice that the military inquisition has come to an end and the American troops will ďŹ nally come back home; but hold off on celebrating that the job is done. You may hear soon after the withdrawal of the U.S. troops that Taliban, with no one in Afghanistan to stop them, have once again become rulers of Afghanistan.

Hamid Karzai, president of Afghanistan, has announced talks between his government and the Taliban have taken place, and ofďŹ cials have praised this announcement. Ultimate success over the Taliban, however, is improbable. Courtesy photo: Wikipedia


Representation of atheists was ill-informed, unjust

Letters to editor inaccurate about satellite voting facts

In response to the article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we all just get along?â&#x20AC;?, I ďŹ nd it hard to believe that readers could take this seriously. Naming three people the author considers atheists and spouting off death counts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convey anything, except that these dictators massacreda lot of innocent people. The author says these mongrels suppressed religion to control people, and that may be. Anyone who has considered mass movements and cults will know that these entities deny knowledge and dissent. But to claim that messages freely expressing a counter-current idea to blind acceptance express hatred, and to equate these messengers with three notorious dictators, seems farcical. Anyone could list notorious people, but such arguments are implausible for the reason that the author chose an inďŹ nitesimal proportion of the atheist populace. This is the wornout argument.. If one considers, say, the fact that most scientists are or have become atheistic/antitheistic, it stands to reason that there must be

Three misstatements have been voiced or implied lately in letters-to-editor and at Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League of Women Voters legislative forum. First, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve repeatedly heard about â&#x20AC;&#x153;union hallsâ&#x20AC;? as voting places, but Auditor Mary Mosiman and representative Dave Deyoe know that there has never been a union hall in Story County used for satellite voting. In fact, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met anyone who even knows of a union hall in our county, let alone public voting during a scheduled union meeting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but there will be voting at two churches while religious services are going on. Second, Alex Tuckness said in a letter that Story County asked the evangelical churches to serve as satellite voting sites. That is not true. The Story County auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own website shows which sites petitioned and asked to serve as satellite sites, and which were â&#x20AC;&#x153;established at the discretion of the Auditor.â&#x20AC;? Cornerstone Church and Stonebrooke Church both petitioned to be satellite sites and are the only two sites that asked for voting during regular Sunday service times. It is this

Jason Lupoi, graduate student in chemistry a certain level of intellect amongst them, that they have thought out these viewpoints and employed the scientiďŹ c method to weigh all evidence, or lack thereof. I ďŹ nd it amazing that these believers, who consider things to be result of a sky-fairy, actually consume scienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medicines and consult doctoral advice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; products of the evolution of science â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and still claim they want to reach heaven as soon as possible, and leave this behind. They use science, and discredit it when the agenda or explanation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ t their beliefs. Or, they stretch out an already-thin argument, claiming some god created scientists and gave them their abilities. These scientists have just gone astray. Without showing empirical evidence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and not just claiming everything should be accepted on blind faith â&#x20AC;&#x201D; authors who write prose such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we all just get along?â&#x20AC;? cannot expect a rational mind to take it seriously.

Susie Petra which is the most disconcerting. Both Tim Gartin and Karen Sevde said publicly at Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum, that they signed the petitions, so Tucknessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; claim that the county asked both churches is invalidated by both Mosimanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website and by both candidates; Gartin being an elder at Cornerstone. Third, Auditor Mosiman has said she cannot legally change voting time at the churches. However, the Secretary of Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election director has said that Mosiman has the legal right to decide the day and time of satellite voting. So, moving the time from regular church services to a time which clearly protects the separation of church and state, is within her purview. Let me add that Cornerstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s site selection certainly is not geographically suitable as a voting site for the general public. But its selection most certainly helps a speciďŹ c congregation.

Outlook of Big 12 as teams head into weekend games

Mass meets milestone

1. No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners (6-0, 2-0 in Big 12) Last Week: W 52-0 vs. Iowa State This Week: @ Missouri Outlook: The Sooners have gotten off to a good start in Big 12 play through two games, but have been inconsistent in their other four. Oklahoma is the class of the Big 12 now, but these rankings could be much different after the Sooners’ matchup with No. 18 Missouri on Saturday. 2. No. 14 Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-1, 1-1) Last Week: L 20-13 vs. Texas This Week: @ Oklahoma State Outlook: From the highest highs, to the lowest lows. The Cornhuskers were set to go undefeated, play for a Big 12 Championship and thought they had a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback. A 20-13 loss to Texas later, and some Nebraska fans are worried about a three-game losing streak. 3. No. 22 Texas Longhorns (4-2, 2-1) Last Week: W 20-13 @ Nebraska This Week: vs. Iowa State Outlook: From the lowest lows, to the highest highs. People everywhere thought the Longhorns were dead after their embarrassing loss to UCLA, then they went on the road and knocked off the country’s fifth-ranked team and suddenly, it’s the old Texas again. 4. No. 17 Oklahoma State Cowboys (6-0, 2-0) Last Week: W 34-17 @ Texas Tech This Week: vs. Nebraska Outlook: Yes, the Cowboys are 6-0. Yes, they have the third-ranked passing offense in the country. But, Oklahoma State has yet to play a ranked team, with games against No. 14 Nebraska, No. 22 Texas and No. 3 Oklahoma waiting. 5. No. 18 Missouri Tigers (6-0, 2-0) Last Week: W 30-9 @ Texas A&M This Week: vs. Oklahoma Outlook: They may not pass the eye test, but the Tigers’ numbers back up their 6-0 record. They’re 24th in scoring offense and second in scoring defense, allowing just 10.8 points per game. No. 3 Oklahoma will be Missouri’s first true test this week. 6. Kansas State Wildcats (5-1, 2-1) Last Week: W 59-7 @ Kansas This Week: @ Baylor Outlook: Yes, that’s Kansas State that’s ranked No. 22 in the first BCS poll. A 59-7 win over your in-state rival obviously impressed the computers, and running back Daniel Thomas has impressed poll voters all season. 7. Baylor Bears (5-2, 2-1) Last Week: W 31-25 @ Colorado This Week: vs. Kansas State Outlook: Imagine if Robert Griffin were healthy last season. The Bears have snuck up on everybody at 5-2, thanks in large part to their play-making quarterback. They need one win for a bowl berth, but four ranked teams await in the last five games. 8. Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-3, 1-3) Last Week: L 34-17 vs. Oklahoma State This Week: @ Colorado Outlook: The Red Raiders have already played four conference games, somehow. A close loss to Texas and big losses to Iowa State and Oklahoma State have them in an early-season hole. They finish conference play with Missouri and Oklahoma, too. A bowl might be out of reach in Lubbock for the first since 1999.

9. Texas A&M Aggies (3-3, 0-2) Last Week: L 30-9 vs. Missouri This Week: @ Kansas Outlook: Things started out well in College Station. However, after three straight wins to open the year, the Aggies have dropped the last three games on their schedule. 10. Iowa State Cyclones (3-3, 1-2) Last Week: L 52-0 @ Oklahoma This Week: @ Texas Outlook: 120-27 in two weeks is tough. Facing four teams ranked in the BCS top 25 makes a schedule tough. With three games against BCS top 25 teams remaining, Paul Rhoads has a tough task in going to back-to-back bowl games. 11. Colorado Buffaloes (3-3, 0-2) Last Week: L 31-25 vs. Baylor This Week: vs. Texas Tech Outlook: It seems that things are better in Boulder. The Buffaloes won three games all of last year and have matched that total already this season. But two ranked opponents await and the Buffaloes need three wins to get their first bowl bid since 2007. 12. Kansas Jayhawks (2-4, 0-2) Last Week: L 59-7 vs. Kansas State This Week: vs. Texas A&M Outlook: Rough year in Lawrence. Yes, there’s excitement around the new coach, Turner Gill. But, getting outscored 114-14 in two games can make any coaching change seem rough. That can make anything seem rough. Oh, and the Jayhawks close the year with Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Missouri.

Senior libero breaks record, sets her sights on being three-time All-American By Dan.Tracy Before an opposing hitter attacks the ball at the net, ISU senior libero Ashley Mass finds that positive self-talk helps her maintain focus amidst the misdirected balls, diving plays and floor burns that come with playing the libero position. “A lot of times I’ll say positive things in my head like ‘You’re a great passer’ and ‘You got this,’” Mass said. “I’m also trying not to be so negative if something bad does happen.” Mass and the 2010 Cyclones (13-4, 6-3 in Big 12) have had plenty of opportunities to be negative this season about things that have happened. The Cyclones lost their home court for the season due to the flooding of Hilton Coliseum, they lost their starting outside hitter to a season-ending injury in junior Rachel Hockaday and 12 days ago they lost their first match to an unranked opponent since 2008 when they fell to Kansas 3-1 in Lawrence, Kan. However, it has been because Mass has continued as a mainstay in the ISU starting lineup that she has helped bring the No. 12 Cyclones out of adversity and into the national spotlight. All the while, she’s become one of the most successful volleyball players in ISU and Big 12 history. Her mental focus and consistency came to a head last Saturday when the 5-foot-8-inch senior broke the Big 12 Conference record for digs in a career. She finished the night at 2,041 career digs following a 21-dig performance in the Cyclones’ 3-1 victory over Texas A&M. “It’s actually a very awesome accomplishment,” Mass said. “Coming in my freshman year it’s something that I didn’t expect to do, so it’s definitely a great accomplishment for me.” Mass moved past previous-record holder 2007 Kansas State graduate Angie Lastra, who finished her collegiate career with 2,032 career digs. “Her recognition has been well deserved over the past couple years, and to see her become the Big 12 leader in digs is really exciting,” said coach Christy Johnson-Lynch. “She certainly deserves it; she’s worked really hard and she’s a tremendous player, one of the best players I’ve ever coached.” During the last four years, Mass has solidified herself in the backcourt of the ISU starting lineup. Mass has played in every match since she first put on an ISU jersey and has started in all but 7 of her 118 collegiate matches. “I’ve gone through these four years having injuries and playing through injuries and sicknesses, so I think it’s a great accomplishment being able to continue to keep playing,” Mass said. Not only has Mass played in every match, she has also played well in nearly every match, digging at least 10 balls in 107 of her 118 matches and more than 20 in 37 of her matches —

More than speed required Consistency, technique should be focus for Reeves By David.Merrill Sophomore defensive back Jeremy Reeves has always been an athlete. When he looks at tape of himself playing this season, he sees something different. He sees the image of a football player. Reeves is not the only one taking notice. “He’s a good tackler, and he’s a physical player, even for his size,” said coach Paul Rhoads. “He has an ability to find the ball and make plays on the ball.” At 5-foot-7 and 168 pounds, the first thing that stands out about the Allen, Texas, native is his speed. The last time Reeves ran the 40-yard dash was as a junior at Allen High School. He was clocked at 4.35, but he’s not sure if he is still 4.35 fast. Texas Tech and Northern Illinois would likely say he still has that speed. In the Cyclones’ victory over Texas Tech, Reeves put the game out of reach late in the fourth quarter when he returned the Red Raiders’ onside kick attempt for a touchdown. Reeves also played a significant part in Iowa State’s victory over Northern Iowa when he intercepted a pass and took it back 94 yards for a touchdown. “It’s hard for me to pick between the two, but it would have to be the onside kick because it was against a Big 12 team, and it was something that I had never done in my life and hadn’t seen anybody do it,” Reeves said when asked

which play he enjoyed more. “It was amazing, I don’t know how it happened.” While Reeves has shown progress with increased playing time from his freshman year, the coaching staff knows that he’s still a work in progress. Secondary coach Bobby Elliott would like to see Reeves improve on his press coverage. Elliott said Reeves relies on his speed too much at times. “He’s used to being the fastest guy out there, and now he’s not,” Elliott said. “There’s other guys out there that are just as fast. You have to be a great technique player when you’re playing one-on-one. He’s steadily working on it, so he’s getting better.” With the Cyclones playing some of the best teams in the nation in recent weeks, the coaches have seen his production decline, which has led to talk about his inconsistency. Rhoads acknowledged that Reeves has great talent, and that once he gains some more experience, the consistency should improve as well. “He’s had flashes of greatness, then times of inconsistency,” Rhoads said. “That is common with a younger player, but when you have a guy that has great talent, you’d rather see that minimized.” Since his freshman season, Reeves said he has been working on his fundamentals and the small things in his game that are going to make him better. He tells stories of staying after practice and doing extra tackling drills with Rhoads and has had Elliott in his ear about constantly moving his feet in press coverage. Reeves said he also wants to improve on covering fade routes.

“I still have a lot to work on and a lot to improve on, but as the season goes on, you get better,” Reeves said. Reeves has recorded 42 kick return yards and 94 yards on an interception return. He has notched 40 tackles, which is fifth-highest on the team and third-highest of the defensive backs. “I always expect the best,” Reeves said. “I never go out and expect anything less. I just go out and practice and get better every day and do what I got to do to help our team get a win.” With the Cyclones undergoing the toughest part of their schedule in the past three weeks, Reeves has seen the difference in the level of competition between Oklahoma, Utah and upcoming opponent Texas, and the teams they played at the beginning of the season. Reeves feels that Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles is the best receiver he has ever faced.

Broyles had 15 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown in the 52-0 victory over the Cyclones. “Oklahoma and Texas — they’ve always been the powerhouse teams,” Reeves said. “They’re ranked every year and have always been in the top 10.” Talent aside, overall speed of the offense is something the defense as a whole is going to have to adjust to. Reeves discovered his blazing speed at a young age, which had coaches putting him on the offensive side of the ball, mainly at running back. But he found his love for defense during his days at Allen High School. At AHS, Reeves started learning to use his speed in press coverage that he is still working on. “I love [being a] defensive back,” Reeves said. “Covering anybody one-on-one is the funnest thing because it’s just you against their guy on that side of the ball.”

Swimming and diving

Cyclones have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;much better plan going into meetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Nate.Ryan The ISU swimming and diving teams are looking to regroup after a lack of mental focus stalled them in the ďŹ rst half of their meet with Minnesota last Saturday. The team is preparing for its meet this Saturday with the University of Nebraska-Omaha. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some good depth and a couple of outstanding individuals,â&#x20AC;? said coach Duane Sorenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be on top of our game and not look past them.â&#x20AC;? The team met Monday before practice to talk about why they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to compete and what their mindset was compared to what it should be on the day of a meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a much better plan going into the meet and being prepared to race,â&#x20AC;? Sorenson said. The Cyclones also have to make the meets just an extension of their training, Sorenson said. The distance and difficulty of each race

doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change whether there are just Cyclones in the pool or an opponent enters the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the meets bigger than what they are,â&#x20AC;? Sorenson said. Sorenson wants his swimmers to approach meets with good intensity, but not to analyze the meet too much, or what the team calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting paralysis by analysis.â&#x20AC;? Nebraska-Omaha will not have a diving team with them when they come to Ames, so Saturday will serve as another intrasquad meet for ISU divers. ISU diving coach Jeff Warrick said practice will change due to the format of the meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll focus on some of the longerterm dives that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to compete in right away,â&#x20AC;? Warrick said. After the Minnesota meet, the diving team is focusing in on making changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you hear me telling you the same thing repeatedly, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing a good job of making changes,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Warrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes that

>>BASKETBALL.p1A overseeing the work done at Hilton and has been in regular contact with Malchow and Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard on a daily basis. Britton could not be reached for comment. Some of the testing done has been environmental and structural testing. However, some things, Malchow said, are as simple as turning on the ventilation systems to ďŹ nd out if the air blows. Solutions have also had to be found for the functions normally housed in the lowest level of Hilton such as teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; locker rooms, scoreboards and video board operation. Malchow said part of restoration plans is ďŹ nding a permanent home for the production office on a higher level of the building to avoid similar problems in the future. However, with work being done on the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure and safety, scoreboard operation wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be addressed full time until much closer to game time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will deďŹ nitely have game functions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; score, shot clock, game clock,â&#x20AC;? Malchow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do all the bells and whistles of the video board, we simply wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know until we probably get into November. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the one thing that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the most uncertain of.â&#x20AC;?

can be real hard.â&#x20AC;? Warrick said one aspect some of the divers will focus on is balks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when a diver starts to walk down the board and gets to the end and does not dive. Some divers have struggled with balks in practice and meet warm-ups Warrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw way too much of that,â&#x20AC;? Warrick said. The diving team is looking for some members to step up Saturday. One of those individuals is senior Abby Christensen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for real good things out of Abby,â&#x20AC;? Warrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a terrible meet last weekend, but I know thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not her best.â&#x20AC;? Warrick said he has already seen improvements out of Christensen following practice Monday. Teams use their meets to help them train for their conference meets at the end of the season. With that in mind, fans will see a different type of meet Saturday. The meet will be an 11-event meet

The ISU volleyball team has already been displaced by the damage done to Hilton, and has played the entirety of its home schedule at the Ames High School gymnasium, a facility that seats roughly 2,000 fans. It would be no problem for the volleyball squad to close out its schedule at the home of the Little Cyclones, and if there is any problem going forward, it is likely that the ISU wrestlers would begin their home schedule there, as well. However, ISU menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball games bring in upward of 10,000 fans, far exceeding the limits of the high school gym. And with just a little less than two weeks before the ďŹ rst game, Malchow said there is not yet a backup plan in place if Hilton is not ready. If Hilton Coliseum is ready for basketball, volleyball and wrestling in the ďŹ rst week of November, though, it may not appear or function the way many ISU fans remember. The hardwood playing surface used for basketball and volleyball was completely destroyed by the water inside the building, and the new paneling is tentatively scheduled to arrive in Ames on Wednesday. The ďŹ&#x201A;oorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pattern and design will be nearly identical to the surface used in past seasons. The lower tier of seating, usually occupied by what Malchow called â&#x20AC;&#x153;high donorsâ&#x20AC;? will also

In their place â&#x20AC;&#x201D; until shortly after the ďŹ rst of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be plain, black folding chairs. Still, the fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience on game day has been the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority during recovery efforts, and that experience will remain largely unchanged from past seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our belief and our hope is,â&#x20AC;? Malchow said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that from the fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, the game day experience will be very normal.â&#x20AC;? However, the behind-the-scenes functions will take on a more â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spartanâ&#x20AC;? existence, Malchow said.

backstroke and 200 breaststroke will only run one heat each. The meet against NebraskaOmaha is at 1 p.m. Saturday in Beyer Hall. Admission is free.

Locker rooms, training rooms and equipment rooms on the lower levels had to be entirely demolished, and work on repairing and replacing those may not resume until later in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our locker rooms will have a nail on the wall and a stool,â&#x20AC;? Malchow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than rush through and haphazardly get our locker rooms rebuilt, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deal with a Spartan environment for as long as it takes, but do it right and focus our immediate attention on getting the fans in there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the games if we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the fans in there. That was an easy priority to make.â&#x20AC;?

From a local perspective, the organization has used energy audits in both the library and black engineering building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We basically see how much energy they are using, what easy ways can we reduce that and by how much, and how much money we can save,â&#x20AC;? said Pasha Beresnev, vice president of ESW. ESWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to do this for

Wilson realized he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get rid of his feelings as much as he tried. He came out when he was 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told my parents and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it well,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of listening and being supportive, they blamed me and called me names. They told me a lot of bad things. They told me it was a perverted lifestyle and I would never be successful, and I love politics and they said I will never have a career in politics.â&#x20AC;? Wilson struggled and told his parents he would try to take back being gay. All he wanted was to feel the same as everyone. He said he felt completely depressed. People at school were spreading rumors and making fun of him and he had zero support from his family. Wilson eventually went into a treatment facility, Love in Action. They promised him they could turn him straight.

ISU Dining has a program, Farm to ISU, which supports serving local produce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Local produce] helps because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping the local economy and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have everything being shipped from across the ocean,â&#x20AC;? said Anna Vance, sophomore in culinary and human sciences. ISU Dining Sustainability has a compost program which uses both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything extra that we

straighten us out was to have football clinics because that is what guys do, and the girls had spa days and makeovers,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that the gender identity has nothing to do with whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gay or straight.â&#x20AC;? After the program failed, Wilson became depressed and dealt with many feelings. Not until he was 20 and found some support was he able to start healing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all about respect and you might not agree on everything, but we are at a point in our society that there are certain facts that we have to accept,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to agree that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never OK to bully or harass someone, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical, psychological or emotional. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one area that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be gay to believe that when 13-year-old children are killing themselves for being bullied, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what your beliefs are, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we all can say this is not right.â&#x20AC;? The ISU Government of the Student Body addressed harassment in their senate resolution urging the university to take a stance against this type of behavior. This resolution encourages the university to look into ways to encourage a diverse campus and climate among the student body. But one more step is needed from GSB, said Brad Freihoefer, graduate student in educational leadership and policy studies

ISU Dining is trying to consolidate two other programs, to both cease the production of extra, unnecessary food and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;heat up time equal to prep timeâ&#x20AC;? program where dining halls will only heat up their food early enough to serve the food ready for students instead of heating the food all day. The Sustainable Agriculture Student Organization offered a place of dialogue amongst students about sustainable agriculture, said Drake Larsen, graduate in natural resource ecology and management. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We offer to the public our sustainable agriculture colloquium every Wednesday,â&#x20AC;? Larsen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have various speakers come in and talk about sustainable agriculture.â&#x20AC;?

and LGBT Student Services coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;GSBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution was great and we want to continue to further a safe environment that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tolerate harassment and bullying,â&#x20AC;? Freihoefer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to remind students to stand up for each other. When students say not positive things we need to stand up for each other.â&#x20AC;? Wilson said one thing he hopes to see is even more action. Wilson said there are three things GSB could do to prevent a lot of the harassment and bullying that occurs at Iowa State so an ISU student never takes his or her life: 1. Provide the LGBTSS two graduate students to help assist. 2. Have GSB send out a message, not to just the heads of students, but to the students themselves so that students being bullied because of any reason be it LGBT, race, sex or disability can have recourses and know that Iowa State does not tolerate this. 3. Look at having a mandatory multicultural class that would educate people. Wilson said he wants everyone to know, though, that it does get better and there are people to help. The LGBTSS are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 1064 Student Services Building. There are also gathering groups.

‘awakening’ By Julia Ferrell Ames247 Writer Many of the newest musicals to hit Broadway are based on children’s stories and popular movies. But only one is based on a German play banned for years due to controversial content. “Spring Awakening,” an alternative rock musical set in 1800s Germany, focuses on issues ranging from puberty and homosexuality to abortion and suicide. The young characters are raised in a reserved society that refuses to tell their children about sexuality which, in turn, leads the characters to make rash decisions and have a skewed idea of adulthood. The show won eight Tony Awards in 2007, including Best Musical, Best Featured Actor and Best Score, which was written by former 90s musician Duncan Sheik. While the musical was immediately successful on play it was based on was considered unBroadway, the pl time. acceptable in its ti written in 1891 by German dramaThe play was w Wedekind.

The show was translated into and staged in New York City in 1911. But again, English an it was threatened with closure, and the city claimed it was pornographic. Only one matinee was allowed to perform to a small audience. The show was closed and remained abandoned until the 1960s, when it was performed in England. This time, two shows were held but the content was censored. The musical “Spring Awakening” opened to positive reviews in 2006, and the play was brought back for a 2009 production in Boston. The performance won a New England theater award for Best Play. The controversial content in the show is not only interesting to audience members, but also the cast.

‘Jackass 3’ worthy of budget theater

The lengths people will go to for entertainment. “Jackass” has been going for some time — around 10 years, I believe — and in all that time, somehow none of the guys have died. This is a marvel to me, as the things they do are just dumb enough for so many things to go wrong; but then you knew that already. This time around, “Jackass 3-D” has rolled into theaters to continue to amuse you with puking and stunts and other things that aren’t fit for decent folks. Luckily, a great deal of people in America aren’t all-together

I could tell you about the stupid things done in the name of entertainment for this flick, but you already know them from previews, YouTube and other outlets of free media.

The selling point, as always, is simply that these guys are willing to do a whole bunch of dangerous or

gross activities in order to let people laugh, or possibly vomit. What really makes this interesting is considering the state of mind the audience has to be in to be behind activities of this sort. Slapstick and physical comedy has existed for years. Some poor shmuck slipping on a banana peel or tumbling down some stairs has always garnered a laugh; though more often the dangerous explosions and other randomly risky behavior was confined to cartoons. Regardless, audiences have always enjoyed the suffering of others so long as the suffering is a choice and not a

The use of 3-D technology is something that is just plain overrated be most people, and the industry is cashing in on a fad that was also popular in the 1980s; there are actually a lot of ’80s-style things coming back nowadays, for some reason. “Jackass 3-D” is funny, though, as have been the previous movies.

And never doubt for a second that these guys aren’t entertainers. They know what to do to grab a crowd’s attention and keep them watching. Hell, they suddenly put out a movie in 3-D and people are flocking to it. I mean, really, what is the allure of 3-D for these stunts?

Comedian to visit Ames

By Shanna Delfs Ames247 Writer

After rapidly ascending to YouTube A-list status, Bo Burnham is taking his brand of musical comedy on the road. He will be making a stop at Iowa State for a free show in November. At 16 years old, Burnham began posting his word play-fueled tunes, recorded primarily in his room, on YouTube in 2006. Now, four years later, Burnham has reached more than 20 million views on YouTube and has garnered national fame. In those four years, Burnham recorded his own comedy show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words, Words, Words,â&#x20AC;? which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts, set the record for youngest comedian to ďŹ lm a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Comedy Central Presentsâ&#x20AC;? show, appeared in the Judd Apatow ďŹ lm â&#x20AC;&#x153;Funny People,â&#x20AC;? created a script for an upcoming ďŹ lm produced by Apatow and recently pegged a show deal with MTV. Now, Iowa State can experience this modern Renaissance Man for free on his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bo Burnham and (no) Friends Tourâ&#x20AC;? at 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1 in the Memorial Union Great Hall.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Race Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; uses comedy, poetry, hip-hop to shine light on derogatory words, phrases

The lecture â&#x20AC;&#x153;N*gger Wetb*ck Ch*nk: The Race Showâ&#x20AC;? will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday in the Great Hall in the Memorial Union. The lecture is being held to bring awareness to students about derogatory terms used in the past to describe different racial groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;N*gger Wetb*ack Ch*nkâ&#x20AC;? is a controversial show that will be performed by three former UCLA students.

The show consists of theater, stand-up comedy, hip hop, slam poetry and real-life stories to face racial slurs. The lecture is sponsored by the Student Union Board and is stopping at Iowa State on its tour across the U.S. The show debuted in spring of 2004, and has been a hit since its debut. The goal of the performance is to explain the origin of the three derogatory words and how they have shaped peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. The actors wants to express that there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;only one race, the human race.â&#x20AC;?

White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer said Obama is taping an appearance on Oct. 27, just several days before this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midterm elections on Nov. 2 Stewart is coming to Washington next week for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rally to Restore Sanityâ&#x20AC;? he is holding three days later

My question for the masses is, why even go out to the theaters to see the ďŹ lm when you can see the same thing at home? Anyway, all-in-all the movie isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad for what it is: a bunch of guys beating themselves up or trying to gross each other out for their own amusement. And the rest of the world is willing to pay them to do this, so they continue to do so. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth the cost of a ticket for the insane bump that 3-D causes, but it is worth catching at the dollar-theater or renting it months after it comes out. As to the content quality, well, the guys attack their genitals with the same fervor they always have, so if you love â&#x20AC;&#x153;football in the groinâ&#x20AC;? stylings, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed. Personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just stick to YouTube and look for what new videos the unprofessional idiots are up to.

Getzug hopes this aspect of the show will be especially important to suicidal youth, after the numerous teenage suicides that have occurred across the nation in the recent weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This play, more than ever, is relevant to all of these suicides that have been going on. All of these kids have been killing themselves because they feel that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completely alone â&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult [to act in the show] and know that [the characters] are kind of in the same situation that these kids are in, in real life,â&#x20AC;? Getzug said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully kids who are feeling the same way will see the show and think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alone, there are other options. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only one going through this and there are always people I can turn to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spring Awakeningâ&#x20AC;? cast wore purple Wednesday to participate in Spirit Day, an event held in remembrance of the recent teenage suicides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the issues presented in the show are issues that are still around and will still be around until the end of time,â&#x20AC;? Getzug said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of us are really excited to let [people] know that this is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid to talk about it. And we hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid to listen.â&#x20AC;? The cast of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spring Awakeningâ&#x20AC;? will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Stephens Auditorium.

date on a Dime Bowling


The Memorial Union Underground was renovated this summer if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to grab a lane with that special someone. A night at the lanes could be a nice place to relax and enjoy a good conversation, especially if your roommate came home drunk and peed on your rug.

After a long evening, get romantic and relax in a nice candle-lit bath with sensual sounds of the ocean. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not on a date, midterms are ďŹ nally getting over and we all could use an evening to just abide.

Omahaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Skypiper to stop in Ames with side project Canby By Lynne Reiter Ames247 Writer Brothers Graham and Gabriel Burkum, along with childhood friend Michael Childers and Kyle Christensen, team up to create the folk rock force that is Skypiper. Hailing from Omaha, Skypiper said it takes musical inspiration from the other melodic forces like The Beatles, The Cardigans, Guster, Johnny Cash and Nickel Creek to inďŹ&#x201A;uence the woven tapestry of rock rhythms and dark vocals. These are best showcased with songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Devil Is Realâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sirens,â&#x20AC;? which appear on their album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lay Low and Pretty,â&#x20AC;? which the

band released in 2008. Skypiper will make an appearance at 9 p.m. Friday at the Maintenance Shop. They will be accompanied by Canby, a side project started by Scott Yoshimura, who is also the drummer of Des Moines band The Envy Corps. Justin Yap is also scheduled to perform. Though Canby may be slower and have more of a pop-inspired ďŹ&#x201A;avor than Yoshimuraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alternative musical stylings, with songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reassuranceâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rat,â&#x20AC;? it still manages to pack a powerful combination of soothing and soulful melodies, affirming Canby as deďŹ nitely more than just a side experience.

Swap lets participants trade clothing items, donate extras

Closets Collide allows students to participate in a clothing swap and make a difference. Students can submit clothing to the exchange from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday at the Memorial Union. Participants will receive tickets in exchange for donating clothes and can be redeemed during the Closets Collide event Saturday in the Sun Room at the Memorial Union. The event gives participants the opportunity to freshenup their wardrobe by trading their tickets for new items of clothing. This will be the second Closets Collide event after a successful ďŹ rst swap in January. More than 200 participants attended and swapped more than 100 clothing items. The fashion-focused event also has a humanitarian side.

Trading clothing, rather than buying new, promotes sustainability. Instead of swapping clothes, students will have the opportunity to donate their tickets to individuals affected by the recent ďŹ&#x201A;ood. Closets

When not on tour, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy wrote an original song for the animated movie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wild,â&#x20AC;? recorded a song for Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phineas & Ferbâ&#x20AC;? and performed on an episode of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing with the Stars..

Jobs unveils MacBook-iPad hybrid, upcoming Mac App Store By Brandon Griggs, Mark Milian and Doug Gross CNN (CNN) - Apple CEO Steve Jobs, near the end of a meandering presentation Wednesday, unveiled his trademark â&#x20AC;&#x153;one more thingâ&#x20AC;?: two refreshed MacBook Air laptops that add some of the ease of use of an iPad. The largest of these slender, lightweight netbook computers has a 13inch screen, is .68 of an inch thick at

its widest point and weighs less than three pounds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be priced at $1,299. A smaller version will have an 11inch screen and costs $999. Both are available today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What would happen if a MacBook and an iPad hooked up?â&#x20AC;? asked Jobs to laughs from the audience at Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the result.â&#x20AC;? Both computers boast unibody construction, full-size keyboards and a webcam for FaceTime video chatting. They have no hard drives and

run on Flash storage, meaning they boot up instantly, like the iPad. Earlier Jobs introduced the newest version of Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating system, to be nicknamed Lion. The new OS follows a big-cat theme, most recently with its 10.6 version, also called Snow Leopard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really happy with Snow Leopard, but we know how to take it even further,â&#x20AC;? Jobs said. The Lion OS will be released in summer of 2011, he said.

Jobs also announced that Apple will open an App Store geared speciďŹ cally for the Mac within three months. The Apple leader announced that FaceTime, the video-chat feature available now on the iPhone 4 and newest iPod Touch, will be coming to Macs as well. A beta release was available Wednesday. Jobs also rolled out an update to iLife, Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suite of photo, music and moviemaking tools. iLife â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11 in-
