Gileau case

Student life

Student sentenced to jail time By Kaitlin.York ISU student Michael CalderonCody, sophomore in physics, was found guilty of a simple misdemeanor in the Raven Gileau investigation that began April 25. Calderon-Cody was sentenced to 30 days in jail; all but ďŹ ve days were suspended and must be served consecutively. He will serve one year of probation, 40 hours of community service and undergo a substance abuse evaluation, said Larry McCoy, Gileau’s uncle. A total of 19 impact statements were submitted by the friends and family of Gileau, which were presented to the court describing the terrible impact her death has had on them, McCoy said.

Internationally involved ISU senior chooses unique path, ďŹ nds opportunities By Whitney.Sager Becoming a veterinarian and rushing through the four-year college experience were not on her to-do list. Emily Zimmerman, senior in biology and global resource systems, came to Iowa State intending to become a veterinarian. A change of heart led to her current double major and the chance to gain international experience in the agricultural ďŹ eld. “I was going to graduate early, but I didn’t really want to,â€? Zimmerman said. “I have no desire to rush my four-year experience.â€? That is where her global resource systems major came in. Considering Zimmerman’s love for travel and international culture, the GRS major ďŹ t

her personality perfectly. This past summer, Zimmerman participated in the Dean’s Leadership Program Summer Travel Course in Rome, a program that focuses on agriculture and food policies. “It’s a great opportunity because they send you to Rome ,and you can either work with one of two different organizations — The Green Agriculture Organization of the United Nations or Bioversity International,� Zimmerman said. Zimmerman chose to work with Bioversity International because of her interest in plants. She had the opportunity to work on a project that examined the Mediterranean diet and the way it uses leafy vegetables. Gretchen Zdorkowski, senior lecturer of agronomy, was one of the faculty members who went on the trip to Rome. Zdorkowski said she did not know Zimmerman very well prior to the study abroad trip and wondered how Zimmerman’s quiet but earnest personality would impact her study abroad

experience. It did not take long for Zdorkowski’s concern to be addressed. Zimmerman quickly became immersed in the project the study abroad group was conducting. “She’s an information digger,â€? Zdorkowski said. “She’s relentless about taking on a task and seeing it to the ďŹ nish.â€? In addition to her commitments to the study abroad trip, Zimmerman also interned with Bioversity International, which she is continuing this semester. The internship allowed her to stay an additional two weeks in Rome and fulďŹ ll the GRS major’s requirement of completing an internship outside the U.S. Zimmerman is working with Dr. Stefano Padulosi during the internship and assists in his studies of agrobiodiversity and the prevention of crop diversity losses.


Reality TV ďŹ lming up for vote By Kayla.Schantz The reality television show “Kaoticâ€? requested permission of the Ames City Council to ďŹ lm a two-hour driving scene on a city street. The show involves eight team members who must buy and customize a car in 48 hours to drive from Chicago to Las Vegas with a budget of $1,300, according to information from producers. The cross-country drive will end at the 2010 SEMA Show, an automotive products trade show taking place in Las Vegas in November. If the request is approved, the shoot will take place on a one-quarter mile portion of South 16th Street between Fountain View Drive and Golden Aspen Drive. The event will be ďŹ lmed between 8 and 10 p.m. The council will vote on whether to approve the motion Tuesday night at the meeting in council chambers at 7 p.m.



Activists track bus tour against Iowa judges

‘Apple to my Pi’ ďŹ nishes fourth

By Tyler.Kingkade

By Taysha.Murtaugh

DES MOINES — Under a chilly, overcast sky, two rallies took place at the Iowa State Capitol building, one encouraging Iowans to vote against the retention of three Iowa Supreme Court justices , the other wanting to retain the judges. The judge bus tour is supported jointly by the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage and is targeting the three justices part of a unanimous decision declaring the state ban on same-sex marriages unconstitutional. “I remember standing there with [state] Sen. Nancy Boettger, discussing how we would get the ďŹ nal language into the code and what it would be,â€? Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said. “It was your voice, the voice of the people who wrote the Defense of Marriage Act.â€? King was a co-author of the 1998 Iowa Defense of Marriage Act then as an Iowa state senator. King appeared with Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas; Republican National Committeewoman Kim Lehman; National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown; and Concerned Women of America state director Tamara Scott for a kick-off rally at the Capitol. They stood outside a black and purple bus with detailed graphics saying, “Support Iowa familiesâ€? and “Vote ‘no’ on activist judges.â€? The bus featured photos of each of the three justices up for retention with “Noâ€? written across their faces. “These judges are rope judges, and they are arro-

Celebrity news Notes and events.

Correction In Monday’s “Greek houses practice routines,” the Iowa State Daily incorrectly identified a sorority as Kappa Alpha Beta in a photograph paired with the article. The sorority pictured was actually Kappa Alpha Theta. In “House pairings show creativity with displays,” a photo featured a display in front of Lambda Chi Alpha. It was not a lawn display, as indicated, but, rather, the fraternity setting up for its fall phianthropy: Goreville Manor. The Daily regrets the errors.

According to the New York Times, not only was it old ground, but the show stole entire lines from a parody of the movie and publicly apologized for it on Friday. “South Park” co-creator told the paper that they actually called the creators of the parody video personally, including Dan Gurewitch, who had accused them of plagiarism on his blog.

Taylor Momsen flashes party-goers She may model for Madonna’s Material Girl clothing line, but Taylor Momsen wasn’t wearing a whole lot of material at a recent New York City event. In fact, the 17-year-old “Gossip Girl” star flashed party-goers while performing with her band the Pretty Reckless, reports People. The aspiring rocker initially took the stage in a ripped shirt, barely there skirt, sky-high heels, fishnets, and a necklace that read “Slave.” During her song, she shockingly pulled down her top

to reveal her bare breasts, which were only covered by x-shaped strips of black tape. Momsen has a history of outrageous behavior and attire, and, despite being criticized for being a bad influence on young fans, the former child star insists she’s not changing her ways. “I didn’t get into this to be a role model,” she has said. “So, I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care.”

Exhibit features students’ work from Berlin By Jacob.Stewart Sixteen College of Design students recently opened an exhibit showing their work, focusing on a trip to Berlin that took place this summer from May 28 to July 2. Mitte is the central borough of Berlin. It’s bisected by the Spree River and was a breaking point for Germany when the Berlin Wall was built. Half the city was West Germany, half became East Germany. “We were working in a hostile environment,” said Kristen Greteman, senior in architecture. “Businesses with a lot of money were buying up the land we were re-designing and making the area very impersonal.” Greteman said throughout the mid-20th century the Berlin Wall created a lot of poverty and squatter areas. The wall basically ran alongside the river and heavily discouraged building projects there, leading to no new development and a bad architectural environment. The ISU students on the trip, along with students from other universities across the world, focused on mediating an agreement between big businesses and small housing developments on the shoreline of the Spree. “We had class from 8 to 5 almost every day. Lectures, city walks, studio time. It wasn’t really a classroom environment, it was a cultural experience,” said Clark Colby, senior in architecture and environmental studies. The students also took time off from classes and brainstorming sessions to experience and learn about German culture. They visited a

Cold War nuclear bunker and one of the first concentration camps that was constructed in World War II Germany. Ulrike Passe, assistant professor of architecture, led the ISU students on this trip. “They were a wonderful group,” Passe said. She has lived in America for four years but travels back and forth between Ames and her home 10 miles north of where the students worked in Mitte. “One of our biggest focuses was

cleaning up the river [Spree],” said John Crispin, senior in architecture and environmental studies. “It was filthy, really not fit for any type of riverside recreation. They had this event called a ‘combined sewage overflow’ where raw sewage and rainwater would mix together in the sewers. The pipes can’t handle the load, so it spilled over into the river.” Crispin and others helped design a system to process rainwater before it hits the sewer to help ease up the mixed content in the river. They have to be careful how they deal with the

river because all the foundations of buildings along the shore are built on sediment. If the river gets drained, the buildings will crumble. Other projects included converting private spaces into public walkways and accessible parks, turning an ancient cathedral into an art gallery, drawing people to a central place in the city, and making the riverside more attractive and functional. Adding sustainability was also a huge focus of the trip. Buildings were made to have a smaller carbon footprint, different methods of construc-

Zimmerman said it is important to preserve plant genes in their natural environment because it will allow them to evolve. “As climate changes, we want our plants to be able to evolve with the climate changes, and if you put them in the gene bank, there’s not a lot of evolution going on in there,” Zimmerman said. Zimmerman had the opportunity to pres-

The number of points depended on the size of the order, ranging from one point for a 3-ounce order to seven points for a 48-ounce order. Niehm’s ice cream earned a total of 232 points, surpassing the fifth place winner, Bri Buscher, Kappa Delta sorority member, by 88 points. “All of the girls that tried it really liked the flavor,” Niehm said of her sorority sisters. “I think there was one week I went to Cold Stone four different times with people who wanted to try the flavor.” The competition began Sept. 6 and ended Oct. 17. The third-, second- and first-place

results have not yet been released. Niehm said Alpha Delta Pi has worked with Siegel in the past during its philanthropy project, “Crazy for Cold Stone.” Siegel said he enjoys get-

ting to know students on an individual basis through community projects like this. “I think it’s a really great idea,” Niehm said. “And I think it’s a great thing that he does for the greek community.”

tion were addressed and sustainable housing was designed for people living in the city. Crispin said all their work was hypothetical, but teachers at the Berlin Summer Academy did take notice in their plans. The exhibit featuring artwork from students and posters explaining the purpose and achieved goals from the Berlin trip opened at 5:30 p.m. Monday, and was hosted by students and teachers alike. ISU Dining provided food for the event and tied things together with a sustainability themed palette of choices. “It’s a very eclectic-themed layout. We’ve got a fall theme going, a lot of squash was used,” said Jennifer Hakey, freshman in pre-journalism and mass communication and one of the waitresses serving that night. “No perishable items were used, no plastic or paper. We have glass plates and metal silverware.” Among the food available was miniature pot pie, apple pie empanadas and pumpkin, corn and lemon grass shooters. The night began with a few inspiring words from Luis Rico-Gutierrez, dean of the College of Design. He stated his appreciation of the students’ eagerness to help overhaul cities. The exhibit is open until Nov. 4 this year and will end with a lecture titled “Energizing Architecture.” “The president of this college has big plans to ready this school’s students to fight disease, overpopulation and hunger. But I believe that at the heart of all these issues is a design problem,” Rico-Gutierrez said. “I’ve always told my design students that their job is a simple one: Save the world. [College] is just practice.”

The poster she created, “A Review of the Current Status of Agrobiodiversity Monitoring Systems,” was displayed during the literature review session. Zimmerman is currently working with Padulosi on writing a paper they hope to publish to make the scientific community more aware of agrobiodiversity. In the future, Zimmerman plans to travel to other countries and expand her international experience.

School offers unique experience By Patrick.Hogan The Associated Press WEST BRANCH — All of the students at Scattergood Friends School in West Branch gathered in the cafeteria for lunch recently, but the room was quiet enough to hear a pin drop. The 60 students of the Quaker boarding school, along with faculty and staff, stood behind their chairs holding hands in complete silence. A minute later, the quiet ended abruptly and the meal began, prepared in part by students on the school’s lunch prep work crew. The private school’s Quaker background and emphasis on community living gives its students an experience very different from their colleagues in public schools. But the unique experience doesn’t come cheap. A year’s tuition at the school costs $24,800, including room and board, with a $2,000 increase planned for the 2011-2012 school year. The price is comparatively low among American boarding schools, according to Head of School Christine Ashley, who said Scattergood is ranked 22 among 200 other such schools in the country in terms of affordability. A Scattergood student’s day begins at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast, followed shortly after by a Quaker practice known as “collection,â€? where students and staff spend 15 minutes in silent contemplation and prayer. Only a small group of students at Scattergood are Quakers, so the practice is strange to many students, such as senior Jarett Mathurin-Neville, 16, who comes from New York City. “It was weird when I ďŹ rst started,â€? Mathurin-Neville said. “But now I really value that time to contemplate my week or go over how I’m feeling or

just enjoy being surrounded by all my friends.â€? The practice has its roots in the Quaker belief that all people form a personal relationship with God without the need for a clergy or liturgy. The quiet time at the beginning of the day also has beneďŹ ts regardless of a person’s religion, according to Ashley.

“The daily practice of just sitting and waiting to start out the day has also been proven by a lot of medical societies to help relieve stress,� she said. After classes and lunch, the students split into “crews� to perform chores and tasks around the campus. The school employs no janitors, so the students have the main respon-

sibility for keeping the buildings on campus clean and functional, according to senior Mary Cate Denson, 17, from Columbia, Mo. “We all pitch in together,� she said. “It provides a sense of ownership for the school because we’re all taking care of it,� she said. After their crew assignments are complete, students have more classes

in the afternoon, as well as time set aside for community meetings, dinner and studying. Lights out in the dorms is at 11 p.m. Students hail from countries as far away as Korea and Chad. The adjustment to life at Scattergood can be difficult, but helps prepare teens for living on their own, according to Ashley.

State briefs Ex-chief of Iowa school group gets $1M retirement DES MOINES — The retired executive director of a publicly funded school board group that’s under state investigation will receive more than $1.1 million in retirement beneďŹ ts, according to a report published Monday. The amount appears to be more than most public employees receive and has garnered criticism from at least one state legislator. Ron Rice, who worked for 13 years at the Iowa Association of School Boards, became executive director in 1996 and retired in 2009. His retirement beneďŹ t, which is paid over a period of years, equals $1,119,874, which includes direct contributions by the schools group and investment gains, according to a Monday story in The Des Moines Register. Records show Rice’s 2008 salary was $214,000.

Neb. man pleads not guilty in crash LOGAN — A Nebraska man charged in a crash that killed four motorcyclists on Interstate 29 in western Iowa has entered a written plea of not guilty. Online court records for Harrison County show Andrew Schlichtemeier entered a written plea of not guilty on Friday to four counts of vehicular homicide. Schlichtemeier, of Murray, Neb., is accused in the Aug. 9 crash near Little Sioux. Iowa authorities say he was drunk when he swerved into oncoming traffic and hit the motorcyclists. The Harrison County sheriff’s office on Monday says Schlichtemeier remains in jail on $200,000 bond. His trial is set for Dec. 7.

AVOCA,— A Harlan woman is recovering after a weekend accident where a large piece of granite fell on her. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says the accident happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday on a construction site in Avoca.

GOP leaders plan Iowa stops as election nears DES MOINES — Voters could be forgiven if they have confused the close of this year’s midterm election with the opening of the 2012 presidential election cycle as potential Republican presidential candidates descend on Iowa. Following long-standing tradition, the potential 2012 rivals are scheduling events to help local candidates on the ballot, particularly former Republican Gov. Terry Branstad. He’s running against Democratic Gov. Chet Culver

in an attempt to win back his old job after a 12 year break. On Tuesday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will campaign throughout eastern Iowa on Branstad’s behalf, making stops in Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Bettendorf. Things get crowded on Wednesday when Branstad is joined by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell at a rally in Newton. On Friday, Texas Rep. Ron Paul will campaign for Republican legislative candidates and give a speech at the University of Iowa. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty also will make another visit to Iowa, campaigning with Branstad on Oct. 31. Although more Republicans are making Iowa stops, Vice President Joe Biden also will make a visit. He’ll campaign Friday in Dubuque with 1st District Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley. House Minority Leader Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha, said a burgeoning presidential campaign can add some energy to Republican campaigns in this year’s election. “I think it adds to the excitement of some of the base,� said Paulsen. “It’s Iowa and that’s part of what goes on here. It just adds to the enthusiasm level.� Senate Majority Leader Michael Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs, said the national interest in Iowa helps both Democrats and Republicans.

Des Moines considers plans for Younkers building DES MOINES — The Des Moines City Council is to consider a plan for the vacant Younkers department store in the heart of downtown. The Des Moines Register says the council on Monday is to discuss a $4.5 million incentive package to aid a $45 million redevelopment plan for the building, which in-

cludes apartments, retail and commercial space and underground parking. The plan, which has been in the works for about six years, is considered a key part of long-range efforts to convert this area of downtown from a transit center to its former strength as a retail and business hub.

Get involved past color-coded marketing ploys We all know the colors of awareness: pink for Breast Cancer, green for sustainability, red for HIV/AIDS and the other colors of the rainbow for various causes. While extremely successful in raising money and awareness for many causes, one must wonder where the point of oversaturation is. Is buying a colored item for awareness really making an effort to help those in need? Americans spend millions of dollars every year buying these color-coded products to raise awareness for issues, but never engage themselves with the causes. For example, Google searching “Breast Cancer Awareness” brings up millions of hits for pink products for consumers to buy, but little about getting involved with prevention and activism. Some of these products are merely for profit – not for the benefit of the cause. If you’re going to buy a colored product as a donation, make sure that what you are purchasing gives a sizable portion to the cause. In our society, it seems as though buying a colored product for awareness is a way to feel like you’ve helped a cause, without the emotional investment. It takes 30 seconds to buy a product, but even a few hours volunteering with one of these causes can make much more of a difference. Although it is good to donate to these causes, getting active and giving support can be much more of a worthy donation to those affected. Strike a balance — donate money, give your time, lend a helping hand to those in need. Amidst the pink ribbons, the bracelets and the mile-walking, it’s pretty easy to forget just how horrible cancer can be — on a humanistic level. We’d write obligatory sentences like “We’ve all lost someone,” but “lost” hardly begins to cover it. The worst thing about cancer is watching someone you love fight a losing battle. Technology has made substantial leaps in the past 20 years — we have new treatments, new drugs, new surgeries, all without the slightest drop in mortality rates. You’d be hard-pressed to say we’re winning the war on cancer, especially if you’re unfortunate enough to know someone currently fighting for their lives. November is just around the corner, and with it, the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink-themed news media and the headlines about the “I heart boobies” bracelet scandal will give way to breaking news on the latest Christmas trends. Cancer, however, will stick around. If you felt so inclined to donate some of your time and money to the cause this month, give it another try over the next 11. It’s important to stay cognizant of what the pink ribbon stands for, for individual cancer patients and also for chronic diseases in general. Don’t lose sight of the big picture while holding the aspects of humanity in your mind. We challenge you to find meaningful ways to get involved with awareness causes. Set down your wallet and use a little elbow grease to help move the causes forward. Put your mouth where your money is, and find ways to get active in these causes.

So sad it’s funny

By Jason.Arment

Just because it’s funny doesn’t mean we tune out


ou can put clown shoes on just about anything that you aren’t comfortable with. Not in the physical sense, but in the ideological sense. Laughter serves an often underestimated utility in our society, because we laugh at everything. Why do we find TV personalities like Glenn Beck and Stephen Colbert humorous? We take what they have to say deadly seriously. If we didn’t, Colbert wouldn’t have spoken in front of Congress; so many people wouldn’t think that Glenn Beck was actual right instead of being a bad caricature. This paradox of taking them seriously while thinking they are hilarious is used to counter any criticism leveled at them by supporters. If I say, “What [insert name of person] is outrageous and disregards the responsibility that comes along with being public figure,” the retort of, “Chill out man, they’re just entertainers,” is quickly offered

up. Meanwhile people hang on to their every word and use the ideas that are put forward by these “entertainers” to shape their own ideologies. Entertainers are what they are, though, as is shown through their actions. Glenn Beck brings the big top circus atmosphere to the Lincoln Memorial. I’m sure I’m not the first person to voice this opinion: I think that was hugely disrespectful. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man who died for what he believed in. He gave a very moving speech at the Lincoln Memorial not so long ago, having the courage to get up in front of a crowd of Biblical proportions and bare his soul to the world; to cry out against the oppression that his race was experiencing. He had the courage to keep getting up and pushing forward every day, even though the times were showing that doing so might not end up being so good for his health — Malcolm X was gunned down in front of his family and friends while starting to give a speech.

But these are all things I shouldn’t have to tell you, right? You’ve weighed these things in your mind, carefully. You didn’t just “yuk, yuk, yuk” along with everyone else’s laughter. You stopped and really thought about what was going on around you, about how the attitudes and ideologies of your peers are affecting society’s paradigms and therefore affecting you. William Blake wrote, “Excess of sorrow laughs, excess of joy weeps,” poignantly pointing out the duality of emotions. We laugh not just when we’re happy, we also laugh when we’re miserable. This nation has much reason to laugh then, when “entertainers” are so arrogant and everyone seems to be OK with it. The people in Colbert’s camp have their hackles raised right now. Yes, I understand that his rally is a response. I’m not sure if the fact that it is a response, in and of itself, is a justification. Is the three-ring circus that our political thought process has become really so sad that it’s funny?


Life and things you care about By RJ.Green

From television and video games to southerners ƒ This will be progressively less funny. Just like “Saturday Night Live” or “The Simpsons.” Fear not, Daily faithful — there will be no guest appearances by Ke$ha. ƒ Between “Halo: Reach” and the new zombies campaign for “Red Dead Redemption,” I’m not sure what’ll take the bigger hit — your girlfriend’s morale or your GPA. ƒ Remember when the History and Discovery channels were actually, you know, interesting? I think they assumed their entire demographic had a stroke or maybe moved south of the Mason-Dixon line. Motorcycle assembly and thrift-store roadtrips aren’t exactly interesting watching. ƒ To be fair, they’re a lot classier than TLC. Not that

ƒ ƒ

ƒ ƒ

exploiting people with disabilities or zany religious values — people content to trade their privacy and dignity for spectacle — isn’t the epitome of class. We get Esquire Magazine at my house. In other news, magazines still exist. Proud Southerners might be the most uninformed people on the planet. I like how they still have that flag around like they’re proud of it, like they could afford to own people if they wanted to. We hand them their asses in what was somehow the only civil war we’ve ever had, and it was to keep them around? I say let ‘em secede. Just kidding, southern outof-staters. Thanks for the tuition! Enjoy your adventure! If you’re one of the five people that bothered to read my “Star Wars” article, I have a confession — I used more colorful language to describe the suck that was the latest Indiana Jones sequel. It rhymes with “schmishmorshin.” It’s funny because it’s

true. ƒ Likelihood of turning into Skynet, in ascending order: Twitter, Craigslist, WebCT, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, Google, Google and Google. They’re watching us ... right now ... ƒ An Islamic community center in proximity to where the World Trade Center used to be is far less an affront to Sept. 11 than the idiots trying to spin it as such. If you take offense to that statement, search “Palestine” on Wikipedia and shut up. ƒ Am I a bad person for thinking Netflix should include “Passion of the Christ” in the Zombies genre? ƒ We should all stop pretending we like everybody we meet. I’m not saying fart in their general direction, but saying things to someone’s face is better than saying it behind their back. It’s more fun, too. ƒ RJ’s one-sentence book review of the week: You should read “Ender’s Game,” it’s

awesome. ƒ People complain too much these days. Customer service has been politically corrected into utter ridiculousness. When I was a younger lad, I lifeguarded at the pool at Ames High during noon lap swim. I had elderly ladies complaining to me about how cold the showers were. ƒ Likelihood of sorority involvement, in ascending order: Michelle, Megan, Sarah, Kelly, Lindsey, Alex, Kelsie, Katie, Audrey, Katelyn, Kaleigh, Kaylee, Quinn, Brynn. ƒ Philosophy, psychology, and sociology majors that don’t plan on attending graduate school should probably pick up a minor in buying lottery tickets. Just sayin’. ƒ Science fact of the week: “Vagina” is Latin for scabbard, or sword-sheath. Don’t tell the feminists. ƒ Why is Memorial Stadium at the University of Nebraska artificially turfed? To keep the cheerleaders from grazing.

‘You couldn’t write a script like this’ By Curtis.Powers

Saturday became perfect day with victory, volunteering


thought about writing a somewhat serious column here like I normally do, but then Saturday happened and everything changed. What a day. Seriously. Outrageously good. It started off great when my 8-week old-son decided to sleep from 11:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., have a quick feed, and went back to sleep till 9 a.m. So both Mommy and Daddy were able to sleep a lot. Huge win for my family, especially because I got to sleep till 11 a.m. I got up to help volunteer for the Daily’s “Stuff the Bus” event to help out the Mid-Iowa Community Action. It went pretty well. Thanks to everyone who helped out and donated stuff. Pretty cool considering we’re still in an iffy economy. Quick side story. When I got an email requesting volunteers, my heart was certainly not in it. I thought, “Man, why do I have to do this?” and other similarly selfish thoughts. It’s even worse considering MICA helps my family out with the WIC program. Note: If you’re a mom expecting or with child, you should check out WIC at It’s legit, and something like 60 percent of American families qualify. But once I committed and actually helped out, I thought, “You know, that was a good thing to do. I can be such a selfish idiot sometimes.” Moral of the story: If you’re asked to volunteer for a good cause, it’s probably worth committing to. Anyway, during volunteering, I had been getting periodic score up-

dates on the Iowa State-Texas game. It was surreal. Iowa State was beating Texas. In football! I had felt that Texas was kind of beatable after the Longhorns lost to UCLA 34-12, but come on, we’re Iowa State. Lightning doesn’t strike twice like that for a team like Texas. Especially not after it beat Nebraska and after Iowa State, well, got smashed two weeks in a row. But there I was tuning into the game and John Walters is telling me we’re up 28-14 in the fourth quarter. Ridiculous! So I get home and the game gets closer. 28-21. By now, this game is reminding me of the Nebraska game last year. I remember sitting on the couch with my wife listening to the game with our hearts in our throats. It was a little different this time with my son trying to talk to me. A little hard to interact with him when my heart is about to stop. When Texas got the ball back with a minute to go, I was yelling, “Get a sack,” and my wife was hoping for an interception. Lo and behold, Jacob Lattimer gets a sack. YES! Four plays later, game over! Epic win! Text my cell phone contacts the glorious news. Talk excitedly to my child. Make a happy Facebook news feed statement. Check the scores. Navy beat Notre Dame! Hurrah! Cheering for the service academies is a fun form of patriotism. On the flip side, I think cheering for Notre Dame is a major part of some folks Catholicism. Things just kept getting better as the day went on, too. Iowa lost to Wisconsin by an extra point. Well, and a horrible decision on timeouts at the end of the game by Iowa. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer school. HA!

Volunteers help organize non-perishable food items for the Stuff the Bus event Friday and Saturday. Volunteers took food and cash donations to benefit the Mid Iowa Community Action food pantry in Story County. Volunteering allows people the chance to give back, and Powers suggests individuals take the opportunity to help. File photo: David Derong/Iowa State Daily

Baylor won another game and is bowl eligible. Outstanding! That’s kinda like cheering for Iowa State in a way. My other favorite team, Illinois, won and is two wins away from bowl eligibility. Fun fact: Illinois and Iowa State have only gone to bowl games in the same year once, the 2001-02 season. Not easy to be a football fan of either team most of the time. The night ended on an even higher note. The Giants won the pennant! The Giants won the pennant! I cannot believe we will be having a Giants-Rangers World Series. I’m

not sure the World Series has had such tortured franchises face each other like this. And I, for one, couldn’t be happier. I remember being a Giants fan in the early ’90s, especially 1993, when I lived in the Bay Area. It was such torture to keep missing the playoffs at the hands of the Braves. I think that’s why I became an As fan when we moved to Illinois in November of ’94. It was better to be a fan of a crappy team and have no expectations than to constantly keep having your heart torn out. Then you have the Rangers who

had never won a playoff game in the entire existence of their franchise thanks to the Yankees. Very sweet to watch them beat the Evil Empire. Plus that poser of a team called Oklahoma lost to Mizzou, capping a dominant performance by the Big 12 North for the day. Moves Boise St. that much closer to a BCS title game. Boise! Boise! Boise! What a fantastic Saturday. As announcer Ian Darke said after Landon Donovan scored the game-winning goal against Algeria in the World Cup, “You could not write a script like this.”



It’s time for us all to demand faster Internet

Online business shouldn’t replace human interaction

By Heath.Verhasselt


ouTube is buffering, Facebook won’t update, Google barely loads. The Internet is slow, but what can you do? The standard procedure for fixing such things involves restarting the router, maybe the modem, restarting your wireless card, and in a lastditch attempt, restarting your computer. What does this solve? Not much, besides wasting about three minutes of your time. The speed of the Internet is something you can’t really control, but something we as a group of users can. Complicated? Very. Whether or not your Internet is going “fast” has several different factors going into it. What type of connection do you have, what time are you using it, are you trying to do something that requires a faster connection than you have? Although a good majority of students are on Iowa State’s network, quite a few of you probably have Qwest, ICS or Mediacom. Those of you on Qwest and ICS are in luck because you’re using what is called DSL and you get a “direct” line to the multiplexer — where all of the phone lines get connected to the main network — whereas with Mediacom cable you are

sharing you connection with your neighbors, limiting the amount of speed you can all have at the same time. Both of these have their limits — where DSL gives you a direct line, Mediacom cable gives you more speed. All network infrastructure aside, when your Netflix suddenly stops streaming for what appears to be no reason, you don’t care about how your ISP has the network set up, you just want to continue watching “Ironman” in 720P — or 1080p with 5.1 for you PS3 owners out there. And that’s the current issue at hand, the United States as a whole has slow Internet. We’re the country that invented the Internet, and Japan and South Korea can run circles around us in terms of broadband speeds. The reason your Internet is slow is because of how hard it is to run wires to everyone’s houses and apartment buildings. You have seen ads for highspeed fiber-optic networks that have been built in your city; Google wants to start doing this nationwide. The issue at hand is how easy it is to run a wire to a neighborhood and how big of a nightmare it becomes to run that same wire to everyone’s home and each apartment building. This is just part of

the problem — a large reason the Net we have now is so slow is because of the lack of competition. Why invest in your network if your customers have nothing else to switch to? This needs to stop, and the solution starts with us. I have a business proposition for you: Let’s create an Internet Service Provider. Exhibit A: Chattanooga, Tenn. The residents of Chattanooga decided as a city that they didn’t like having such slow networks and decided to build their own fiber-optic network and basically made the Internet a utility like water or electricity. This allows for governmentsubsidized Internet, paid for by Chattanooga, used for by Chattanooga. Several other cities nationwide are doing similar things with wireless. It’s called WiMax and it’s like the wireless Internet that we’re all used to, but this one covers the entire city. All of these are great ideas, but it’s up to us as consumers, citizens and users to band together and decide. Do we want to settle for mediocre Internet that slows to a crawl when everyone gets on Facebook from 9 to midnight every night, or do we want change? That’s on you to decide.

By Thomas.Hummer


n the 2005 Judd Apatow film “The 40 Year Old Virgin,” there’s a brief and memorable scene that takes place in the “We Sell Your Stuff On eBay” store. After Steve Carell’s character leaves, an awkward youngster — played by Jonah Hill — wants to purchase a pair of shoes and is refused by the store’s owner, who only sells the in-store products on eBay. The humor, of course, comes from the fact that it would be ridiculous to dedicate physical space to something that had to be done via the Internet. After all, that would never happen in real life. Right? I naively assumed this to be the case, until a friend of mine told me that he had a similar experience with his bank. “I went in and asked if I could have a personal loan to consolidate my debt,” he said, “and they told me I had to go apply online. I said, ‘Well, I’m here now. Can’t I just apply now, in person?’ They told me I couldn’t and gave me the website where I could fill out the online application.” Now, I can understand why it’s helpful to have this information available online, but I also figured it would be purely supplemental

and possibly a worst-case option for if you can’t get in there and talk to someone in person. To completely replace that service with an online version seems ridiculous. But this isn’t the only example of the great Internet migration. Other businesses have also been moving toward modes of operation that include as little human interaction as possible. In restaurants, physical comment cards are becoming rarer while customers are encouraged to write comments online. At least in these situations there’s usually a manager to speak with, but otherwise, the attitude seems to be that nothing is official until it’s documented through the Internet. We’ve also all experienced the dreaded automated menus on customer service phone calls, some of which never seem to find their way to a real human being. With some companies it’s impossible to tell how far down the rabbit hole of button-pushing you have to go before you’ll hear a human voice. Maybe they just rely on the hope that the caller will get frustrated enough to simply hang up.

The big issue in these situations is the customer’s level of choice. Sometimes you can avoid an awkward situation and save some embarrassment by doing business online, but the option should still be available for the customer to interact with an employee or representative if they want to. Even Walmart hasn’t switched to all self-checkout lanes, and even those have a person on hand to help if something goes wrong. Another similar example is the FAFSA. While most students opt to fill this out online, there are still offices where you can schedule an appointment with somebody who will help you fill it out, for free. In general, I see the Internet age as a good thing. It’s great that we’re able to connect with people across the country and even the world. The key to this is that the online world should remain supplemental to the physical realm of human interaction rather than completely replace it. When this mode of business is overtaking personto-person communication rather than reinforcing it, that’s when we have a real problem.

Restoration planned for Nativity Church By Mohammed Daraghmeh The Associated Press BETHLEHEM, West Bank — The Palestinian government announced Monday it is planning an ambitious restoration project for the ancient church that marks the traditional birthplace of Jesus, an important Christian site that draws millions of visitors. The renovation of Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity is expected to take several years and millions of dollars, according to Ziad Bandak, an official overseeing the restoration. Bandak said this is the first comprehensive restoration project on the church since it was completed in the fourth century. He said the roof, pillars and mosaics in the church all need work. “Rain leaking in has caused great damage to all of those, which led us to move quickly to repair the damage,” Bandak said, adding that the project

would also aim to fix general wear and tear on the centuries-old church. The fortress-like church, built in the classic style with a long central area under a basilica lined with columns on both sides, is dark and damp. The main Christmas event, the Midnight Mass, is celebrated in the 19th century St. Catherine’s Church next door to the Church of the Nativity. The Palestinian government has appealed to European and Arab nations to help fund the project, Bandak said. He said the three churches that administer sections of the church have agreed to the project. Officials from the Latin, Greek and Armenian churches could not be reached for comment. Their rivalries have often led to fistfights between monks at the holy site. Bethlehem was once the site of frequent battles between the Israeli military and Palestinian militants,

but a drop in violence in recent years has boosted tourism to the town. Foreign and local worshippers pack the old church at Christmas. As many as 2 million people visit the church every year, according to Palestinian Tourism Minister Khouloud Daibes. “The restoration won’t hinder tourism and pilgrimage and worshipping in the church. Visitors and pilgrims are always welcome to visit the church in all phases of the restoration,” she said. On Monday, the church was littered with building materials as workers assessed the scope of needed repairs. A group of Italian artisans hovered over one of the church’s mosaics, studying the tiny stones. “We are checking the colors, the stone, the conservation, and after that we will do the restoration,” said Stefano Defen, one of the restorers. “There is a lot to do.”

BP CEO hits back at politicians

Leader sentenced for carrying out terrorism plot

By Jane Wardell The Associated Press LONDON — BP Chief Executive Bob Dudley accused some politicians and the media on Monday of being too hasty to pin all the blame on his company for the devastating Gulf of Mexico spill — and emphasized the need for deepwater drilling. In his first major public speech since taking the top job, Dudley also said BP would not pull out of United States — and that the U.S. needs a company with BP’s resources to meet its vast energy needs. Dudley delivered a speech whose mood hovered between firm and penitent, seeking to make clear that BP was learning every lesson possible from the disaster. He stressed that he also has

met with experts from other hazardous industries, including the nuclear and chemical industries, as part of the company’s focus on improving safety. “We were certainly not perfect in our response, but we have tried to do the right thing and we are making significant changes to our organization as a result of the accident,” he added. U.S. lawmakers have widely blamed BP for the disaster. On Monday, Dudley said many parties, including rival oil companies, were guilty of “a great rush to judgment” before all the facts were known. The company’s own investigation shared the blame with rig owner Transocean Ltd. and contractor Halliburton Co. The U.S. government could fine BP up to $21 billion for the

spill, on top of a $20 billion disaster fund that the company has committed itself to. A bill that passed in the U.S. House of Representatives would prevent companies like BP that have a poor safety record from getting new offshore permits. A Senate bill that was eventually tabled didn’t contain a similar provision. Speaking at an annual conference of Britain’s leading business lobby group, Dudley stressed BP’s commitment to the United States despite the ongoing political and public fallout and talked up the company’s ability to withstand the expected financial hit from the spill. Earlier Monday, BP announced it has sold its stake in four mature oil and gas fields in the Gulf of Mexico to

Marubeni Oil and Gas for $650 million. The fields were part of a recent acquisition of Gulf assets from Devon Energy and were considered nonessential. BP is hoping to raise $30 billion from selling assets and already has raked in almost $9 billion from the sale of properties in Egypt, Canada, the U.S. and Colombia. Dudley argued that deepwater drilling is necessary despite the dangers. He cited predictions that the world could be consuming 40 percent more energy than today by 2030. Deepwater drilling is projected to grow to account for 9 percent of total oil supplies in 2020, from 7 percent currently. BP continues to make plans for further drilling projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

BRAMPTON, Ontario — The ringleader of a homegrown terrorist group was sentenced Monday to 16 years in prison for leading a terror cell plotting to attack Canada’s Parliament buildings, electrical grids and nuclear stations. Fahim Ahmad had pleaded guilty in May mid-trial to participating in a terrorist group, importing firearms and instructing his co-accused to carry out a terrorist activity. Ahmad and 17 others were arrested and charged with terrorism offenses in 2006. The court heard that Ahmad, 26, was the leader of a terror cell and held two training camps to assess his recruits’ suitability. Plans were made to attack nuclear stations and storm Parliament, taking politicians hostage until Canada gave in to his demands to pull troops from Afghanistan. Ontario Superior Court of Justice Fletcher Dawson ruled that even though Ahmad was the leader of the plot and the person who tried to put together an al-Qaida-type cell, he was not effective at it and was never close to actually carrying out any of his threatened attacks.

October is

Celiac Sprue Awareness Month When an individual with celiac disease eats gluten, a protein component found in many grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats), it sets off an autoimmune response that causes damage to the small intestine. This in turn causes the small intestine to lose its ability to absorb nutrients and may lead to malnutrition or other serious complications. Recent studies show that as many as one in 133 people in the United States has celiac disease. These individuals must follow a gluten-free diet for treatment.

A $1 million flagship grant to reduce domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking on campus has been extended for two years. The grant is funded by the United States Department of Justice and was started in 2007. It was supposed to end in July 2010, but was extended to keep the education going and have a final review of policies on campus, said Martha Tanner, assistant to the vice president of Student Affairs. She said Iowa State received $78,416 of the grant money, and she is unsure of how much the Board of Regents universities will receive for the 2010 to 2012 portion of the grant. A large portion of that

money went to creating the Catalyst Theatre Co., a troupe of student actors who perform to educate students about gender equity and sexual assault, Tanner said. She said the grant is also helping by educating the campus police force and faculty on what to do when someone reports to them. The money provided for two conferences — one on educating men on gender violence and the other on assault services. The university was also able to bring in a consultant to review policies. “We didn’t have one policy for sexual misconduct for students. We had general harassment policies. We just had to separate the language into one place,” Tanner said. Although the exact effects of the grant are hard to quanti-

>>BUS.p1A gant,” King said. “In their arrogance, sitting up there looking down their nose at you right now thinking ... they know what’s best and they’re going to set social policy without regard to the Constitution or the will of law.” But later in the afternoon, leaders of the Human Rights Campaign and the Courage Campaign said NOM is now in court trying to keep its donors secret from current campaign finance law, and they will be sending a tracker to document the tour. “These people are really on the fringe — they’re out of touch with America,” said Rick Jacobs, founder and chairman of the Courage Campaign. “Nobody turns out for them ... They understand that history is against them and America is a just country that believes in equality — that’s the history of this country.” Jacobs said NOM’s goal was to cause trouble, create division and “use the speech that leads to suicide.” The counter-rally before the Judge Bus rally featured former Lt. Gov. Art Neu, Republican and co-chairman of Fair Courts for Us, and a speech by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa. Supporters of retaining the justices, like former Iowa Supreme Court justice Mark McCormick, said the campaigns against them are to intimidate courts from making unpopular decisions. Brown and King seemingly confirmed that sentiment Monday, although they say it’s about judicial activism, not voting on popularity. “You send a message to these judges on Nov. 2, and I will tell you, it will echo all across this land in all 50 states,” King said.

fy, numbers of reported sexual violence have gone up on campus since 2007. Steffani Simbric, program assistant for public safety and Story County Sexual Assault Response Team coordinator, said it’s hard to quantify how many sexual assaults are actually happening because national statistics say that between 60 and 90 percent of assaults are never reported. “I think it’s hard to speculate direct results. It is making a difference,” Simbric said. She said the grant is helping intervention services in the area publicize what they can do for sexual assault victims. Simbric said they help people find support and services for healing and help out if they decide to do any kind of judicial counseling or press charges.

“The whole country is looking at you,” Brown said. “What kind of country are we? Are we a country in which seven judges can take the entire Constitutional and common-law history of marriage and throw it aside and the people will not have a say, or are we a country where the people of Iowa are going to stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough’?” One Iowa executive director Carolyn Jenison said the groups on the tour want judges around the country to know if they don’t rule the way “these extremists” want them to, they will be targeted by “anti-gay extremists” to be removed from the bench. Some members of the first rally supporting the judges waved signs reading, “Vote Yes, Yes, Yes,” while the other crowd held yard signs reading, “No Activist Judges.” At times, they shouted back at the speakers, such as calling NOM the “National Organization against Marriage.” Gohmert made controversial comments in June and August, claiming women from the Middle East were flying to the U.S. to give birth to “terror babies” who would then be U.S. citizens. Lehman caused an uproar recently when she suggested President Barack Obama was not an American citizen. Former Iowa Attorney General Bonnie Campbell also spoke at the counter-rally and expressed fear that campaigning against the justices could wreak havoc on the Iowa judicial branch by voting out too many justices or by encouraging more political campaigning around the judiciary. Opponents of NOM have also alleged Catholic and Mormon churches were largely funnelling money into their campaigns.

Freshmen step in Matlock, Hahn show confidence, provide spark for No. 12 Cyclones By Dan.Tracy Libero Ashley Mass and outside hitter Victoria Henson, both seniors, have enjoyed tremendously successful careers with trips to the NCAA Tournament each season and All-American recognition in 2009. Both Mass and Henson have enjoyed that success humbly, choosing to lead by example throughout their tenures as Cyclones. Take a peek at the future for ISU volleyball, and already two players have emerged with vastly different personalities. A “bubbly” middle blocker and right side hitter Tenisha Matlock and a “loudmouth” defensive specialist/libero Kristen Hahn have provided a spark for the team in practice and now in matches for the No. 12 Cyclones (15-4, 8-3 Big 12). Both had significant playing time in the Cyclones’ 3-0 home sweep of the Kansas Jayhawks, with Matlock starting her first

match of the season in place of junior right-side hitter Kelsey Petersen. Out of the two, Matlock has seen more time this season, as the Kansas match marked her 12th appearance on the court for the Cyclones. Matlock’s in-match numbers haven’t been staggering — 0.96 kills per set with a .147 hitting percentage — but coach Christy Johnson-Lynch has seen Matlock thrive in practice, prompting Matlock’s first collegiate start on Saturday. “I think Tenisha has been playing really, really well in practice lately, and I thought that based on the way she’s been practicing, she deserved a shot to see what she can do,” JohnsonLynch said. “She’s a very positive person, she’s very energetic, very bubbly. It’s always fun to see her out there.” After last Wednesday’s match at Colorado, Johnson-Lynch spoke with Matlock about how impressed she was with her recent performance in practice and told Matlock that she was thinking about starting the North Platte, Neb., native Saturday against Kansas. Working at both middle blocker and at right-side hitter during practice, Matlock has seen her game become more



Coach ‘happy’ with record By David.Merrill It’s no secret that Iowa State has played a challenging schedule this season. In fact, Iowa State plays one of the nation’s toughest schedules among all Championship Subdivision teams. The combined records of Iowa State’s first eight opponents is 41-16. All the opponents have winning records, and three of them have already locked up bowl eligibility. “To be at 4-4 and have the resiliency that our kids have shown to this point, and to come away from Austin, Texas, with win number four and win number two in the Big 12, we’re very happy,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads at his weekly news conference Monday. With Kansas and Colorado still on the schedule, Iowa State’s bowl chances have increased. The Cyclones will likely be favored against both teams, and both are below the Cyclones in the Big 12 standings.

This marks the second straight season Rhoads has coached his team to a monumental win on the road. Last season, Iowa State knocked off Nebraska in Lincoln for the first time since 1977. Rhoads was unable to pick which one was more significant, saying they were both significant but in different ways. “They were at different points of the season and had different impacts on the season,” Rhoads said. “Both were certainly historic. One win put us at 5-3 and we were coming off a victory; this win was on the heels of two big losses that got us back to .500.” “You can’t argue that beating traditional programs like that gives a huge boost to a program that’s trying to make a name for itself,” he said. Iowa State was a 21-point underdog heading into the game with Texas. The Longhorns were coming off a victory over Nebraska in Lincoln, a team they’ve lost to only once. Their other losses this season have come to UCLA and now Iowa State.

Win over Longhorns impacts Cyclones’ recruiting Usually it is the coaches that are calling the recruits. In the wake of the victory over the Longhorns, Rhoads and the ISU coaching staff experienced how monumental wins can help recruiting. “On the bus, our coaches received phone call after phone call from recruits offering congratulations,” Rhoads said. “When you have that happening, you know you’ve already impacted the kids, and a win impacts that even more.” Rhoads himself stopped counting his text messages at 125 after turning his phone on after the game.


Iconic wins signature of Rhoads era


By Jeremiah.Davis

ate last week I had an idea about what to write about in this space. The ISU football team was coming off one of the most demoralizing stretches in recent memory and hadn’t given anyone much of a reason to believe it was going to get better. I wanted to get a sense of what fans were really feeling about this football team. Hearing people talk on campus, there wasn’t much hope. If people talked about an upset over Texas, it was sarcastically. Then Saturday happened. It seemed surreal. A year after the Cyclone football team beat Nebraska on the road for the first time since 1977 — almost to the day — it beat Texas, on the road no less, for the first time ever. Like last year, no one outside the football program expected it. No one predicted it. Because of Iowa State’s football history, a lot of people assume the Cyclones just aren’t going to win big games. Maybe that thinking should change now. Yes, the two weeks prior to the Texas win were terrible. Despite whatever the players and coaches might have said publicly, they had to have been disheartened, at the least, after Utah and Oklahoma used them as national stepping stones. But never underestimate what embarrassment can do to a football team. Especially when that team is coached by Paul Rhoads. The team said going into the Texas game that it remained confident. I thought at the time that if it was still confident, it was either crazy or lying to itself. Coach Rhoads credits his staff and players for showing me that I was obviously wrong on both accounts. “You play your way into confidence,” Rhoads said. “We talked after the Utah game that we had to bring our football team back. You can only do that so much with what you say. We had to go out there and perform.” The Cyclones did more than just perform. They beat Texas in every facet of the game, despite what the stats might reveal. They got pressure on the quarterback for the first time in what seemed like forever from first-time starter Jacob Lattimer. The secondary made play after play, with each guy making his presence known at one point or another. Offensively, Alexander Robinson looked like the A-Rob of old, and the offensive line gave Austen Arnaud good protection all game. It looked like the best, complete team performance this season for sure, and maybe in the Rhoads era. The team’s jubilation could only have been surpassed by the throng of fans who gathered in the Bergstrom Indoor Practice Facility for a pep rally to welcome the team home. As the band played and the fans cheered, Rhoads thanked the crowd for showing such support. I’m sure, though, that Rhoads and the players would love for there to be a time where a win like Saturday’s isn’t met with such celebration because the fans have become used to it — where the only time fans welcome the team home with such excitement is if they were coming home as Big 12 champions. Rhoads even said that would happen. “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship, that I can promise you,” Rhoads said. What’s important now, just like last year, is not resting on this victory but using it as motivation for the rest of the season. Because suddenly back-to-back bowl games isn’t out of reach — something that seemed ludicrous just a week ago. A win like this reminded everyone who loves Cyclone football why Paul Rhoads is the perfect man for this job. Slowly but surely, he’s laying the ground work for the future. In two years, this program has gotten two signature wins, and if Rhoads and company have their way, Cyclone fans can look forward to more.


Cyclones’ first road test results in series split

Rink contributes to Friday’s loss By Dan.Kassan

The Cyclone hockey team took to the road for the first time this season, arriving

Friday in Champaign, Ill., to take on the Fighting Illini of the University of Illinois. After a loss Friday, the Cyclones came out strong and defeated the Illini on Saturday. Playing on an old speed-skating rink converted to a hockey surface, the ice is larger than the Ames/ISU Ice Arena sheet and proved difficult to adjust

early on. “It’s a lot wider than expected,” said freshman goaltender Scott Ismond. “It’s definitely a learning curve, but no excuse to drop Friday’s game.” Senior Cort Bulloch said after two periods the team started to adjust better to the bigger playing surface. “Sometimes you feel lost

out there in the ice,” Bulloch said. “It throws off your setup and your defensive play.” Bulloch played his last game at the “Big Pond” on Saturday. Held out of Friday’s contest after missing two practices during the week, the senior captain responded by getting playing time Saturday, and committed one penalty.

The Illini are an annual fixture for the Cyclones, and the seniors got their last game at the unique rink for their college careers. “I’m a little sore, but I’m fighting through it,” Bulloch said. “It was tough to watch the loss from the bench. To leave there with a win in my final game there was something

Lattimer shines in first start In his first-ever start, junior Jacob Lattimer made a big impact at defensive end. Lattimer recorded two sacks, forced a fumble and hurried Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert four times starting in the spot formerly occupied by junior Patrick Neal. The former linebacker made the switch to defensive end before the season started, and his performance against the Longhorns earned him Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. “The production was fantastic,” Rhoads said. “[Lattimer’s] been coming along, and that’s why we made the move. He was relentless in the victory on Saturday, but I thought the whole front four made an impact on the game and had the quarterback scrambling quite often.”

Team encouraged by fans’ support After hearing about the victory, an impromptu pep rally was scheduled at the Bergstrom Indoor Practice Facility to welcome the team home. While Rhoads would like to get the program to a point where victories over teams like Texas become common practice, his players were grateful. “It reminded me so much of last year when we beat Nebraska,” said quarterback Austen Arnaud. “To come home to that is unbelievable and these fans, the way they come out and support us, they deserve to have us win every weekend. We’re just trying to give back to them.” Running back Alexander Robinson was also encouraged by the huge fan support the team received upon returning to Ames. “It was huge for us,” Robinson said. “It just shows how much our fans stick behind us after two losing weeks, and then you get a win like that. They come back and pack the indoor for us and celebrate with us.”

where you can suffer a separated shoulder and come back to play the next weekend,” Murdoch said. “It was good to have him out there to help team chemistry. He’ll get stronger every day.” For the freshmen, it was their first road trip as Cyclones. Players roomed with seniors to continue to develop chemistry and grow as a team. “I thought we came closer as a team,” Ismond said. “It was good being with the seniors, learning from them. It was a good learning experience for our first road trip.” Murdoch understood the difficulties of the trip, but figured his guys knew what to expect. “I thought the freshman responded well,” Murdoch said. “They don’t get homesick. Some teams struggle on their first road trip, but our guys like it. Our chemistry is getting stronger every game.” Iowa State was held scoreless for almost the entire game Friday, until Brandon Clark prevented the Illini shutout. The Cyclones almost tied the game, but a shot rang off the iron with eight seconds left. Iowa State lost 2-1.

Saturday, the Cyclones adjusted better to the ice, and the scoreboard reflected it. After a 1-1 first period, the Cyclones tallied the go-ahead goal early in the second on a Matt Rucinski goal. The Cyclones and goalie Erik Hudson played stellar defense to preserve the 2-1 victory and series split. “The score Saturday was no indication of the play,” Murdoch said. “We could have won 6-1. Our goaltending was outstanding both games. Hudson had his best game of the season Saturday, and Ismond played great Friday. Both gave us a chance to win each game.” Hudson made 29 saves on Saturday, and Ismond, making his third start of his career, saved 25-of-27 shots from the Illini. “We learned from Friday’s game that we need to step on the ice and play right away,” Ismond said. “Saturday we were ready for a win, ready to play.” Going on the road is no easy task. The opposing fans gave the Cyclones all they could handle, and the home team undoubtedly played better behind the partisan crowd. Winning both games on the road is the

goal, but a series split is something Bulloch finds promising. “I think it was a pretty big success,” Bulloch said. “It’s tough to win on the road. But we battled adversity, and to come back with a greasy road win Saturday was huge and brings the guys together.” Murdoch’s teams are known for effort in Saturday games. Murdoch shuffled the lineup during the weekend, sending different looks toward the Illini, and was pleased with the effort his team put forth. “I think they played as well as we’ve ever played this season,” Murdoch said. “We are right on target for where we want to be.” The Cyclones remain below .500 on the year, but thanks to the strength of schedule, they are still ranked eighth in the league. Despite that and the high praise, Murdoch insists that’s not a cop-out. “We need to stop talking about our schedule and decide to win every game,” Murdoch said. Iowa State plays host to Ohio University for Homecoming this weekend. The first game of the weekend is at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Ames/ISU Ice Arena.

ing well,” Johnson-Lynch said. Hahn, a Cedar Rapids Kennedy prep, has played in 8 of 19 matches this season, contributing 15 digs as a substitute. Hahn has cherished her early playing time and credits Johnson-Lynch for helping her adjust to the college game. “It shows Christy’s confidence in her freshmen, and it makes me more confident knowing that she can just put me in when she needs someone, it eases your jitters,” Hahn said. “I got really nervous at first, but it’s gotten a lot better as she keeps putting you in; you get really accustomed to the pace of the game. It’s fun.” Hahn has been a change of pace for the Cyclones’ back row, having more of a vocal presence than Mass, the Big 12 record holder in digs. “Part of my recruitment was that I’m a loudmouth, always cheering, always excited,” Hahn said. “I try and bring that even in practice when things are kind of boring or drills aren’t that exciting.” Hahn has been reminded of her state tournament experience from high school as she has transitioned into the high-intensity level of the college game. “Kristen has a lot of energy; she’s very athletic, she’s a great defensive player,” JohnsonLynch said. “We just wanted to see what she could do if given the opportunity, and I thought she did a really nice job.” With only nine matches remaining in the regular season, Johnson-Lynch hopes that getting Matlock and Hahn some minutes should help add depth to the ISU lineup as they look poised to qualify for their fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament. “Tonight we wanted to just give some other people some chances if we felt we could and just see if they could add something and have an impact on the match,” Johnson-Lynch said. Coming off the win over Kansas, the Cyclones will now travel to Manhattan, Kan., to face Kansas State at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Iowa State defeated Kansas State 3-0 at home on Oct. 13.

Molina to face former team in Series By Stephen Hawkins AP Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO — Bengie Molina gets a ring regardless of who wins this World Series. “I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s going to be a very happy, weird feeling,” said Molina, the catcher who was traded from San Francisco to Texas this season. “Just weird because I played there for 3 1/2 years, and to wear another color in that stadium.” Molina has been with the Rangers for only 3 1/2 months, shipped off by the Giants on July 1 to make room for top prospect Buster Posey behind the plate. Instead of catching twotime NL Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Brian Wilson and the other Giants pitchers he knows so well, Molina faces a more difficult task — trying to hit against them and beat them in Texas’ first World Series. It makes for a strange scenario: Both of Molina’s teams are in the spotlight. “It’s going to be a very happy World Series for Bengie

Molina. I’m going to try to enjoy it as much as I can,” he said. Game 1 is Wednesday in San Francisco with a possible matchup of the 2008 Cy Young Award winners, Lincecum vs. Rangers ace Cliff Lee. This isn’t the first time Molina has faced the Giants in a World Series. But his 2002 championship with the Angels came before he played in San Francisco. The Rangers acquired Molina to help settle their catching situation, and he shares time with Matt Treanor. Molina played 57 regular-season games with Texas and 61 for the Giants. San Francisco traded Molina soon after promoting Posey, who became the club’s cleanup hitter and a leading contender for NL Rookie of the Year. Texas began the season with Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Taylor Teagarden behind the plate. Both young catchers were optioned to the minors less than a month into the season and Saltalamacchia has since been traded. Texas was already leading the AL West when Molina got

there. San Francisco was in fourth place in the NL West, 5 1/2 games behind San Diego, when he left. Now the two teams meet in a situation Molina never really imagined. “I think I knew [the Rangers] had a great chance to make it to the playoffs,” he said. “For both teams to be in the World Series? Not a chance.” The 36-year-old Molina is the oldest of the three Molina brothers who are catchers with championship rings. Jose Molina was Bengie’s backup with the 2002 Angels and was with the New York Yankees last season, while Yadier won a title with St. Louis in 2006. Bengie Molina, who can become a free agent after the season, hit .333 [10 for 30] in 10 playoff games for Texas with two home runs and seven RBIs, including the go-ahead, three-run homer in Game 4 of the AL championship series at Yankee Stadium. He had only five homers during the regular season. Two weeks after joining the Rangers, the slow-footed Molina became the 15th catcher in major league history to

hit for the cycle. His homer in that game at Boston was a grand slam, and the triple — only the sixth in his 1,362 major league games — came in his last at-bat. Texas manager Ron Washington figures Molina’s familiarity with the Giants should benefit the Rangers in some ways. But of course, each Texas hitter will be on his own in the batter’s box. “Each hitter will have their own problems of dealing with them,” Washington said. “But anything you can learn, anything you can find out in the way of patterns of what they like to do in certain situations, we’ll go over all that.” Molina certainly isn’t looking forward to trying to hit against Lincecum, Cain or Wilson. He knows how good they are, having had an upclose view. “It’s going to be very hard,” Molina said. “It’s kind of weird to go back and try to face them. It’s not easy at all. It’s actually harder because you over-think yourself a lot of times.” Plus, this time, he’ll have to think like a hitter — not a catcher.

Exec praises week’s clean play By Barry Wilner The Associated Press NEW YORK — One week after drawing heavy fines for illegal hits, James Harrison and Brandon Meriweather were praised by the NFL for clean play in Sunday’s victories. Ray Anderson, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, told The Associated Press on Monday that Meriweather and

Harrison “heeded our emphasis” on eliminating fouls and deserve to be lauded. So do others, Anderson said, after no flags were thrown for illegal hits to defenseless players in the 13 games. Harrison was fined $75,000 and Meriweather $50,000 for hits to defenseless opponents last week, when the NFL announced it would begin suspending players for such tackles.

“We like to think we’re off to a good start in terms of the new emphasis and the recognition that we are going to play aggressively but well within the rules,” Anderson said. “It’s a good start.” “Brandon Meriweather, specifically, last week we were appropriately calling him out and chastising him,” he added. “Yesterday in the Patriots’ game at San Diego, Meriweather made two very

tenacious, effective and legal hits in similar situations. But you could see it, he lowered the target area, blasted the opponent with his shoulder. He adapted, showing it can be done.” Anderson also mentioned Harrison, who skipped one day of practice last week and said he contemplated retirement rather than change how he plays. But Harrison played cleanly in a win at Miami.


Anti-hunger group to sponsor Gordon By Jenna Fryer The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon will be sponsored next season by an anti-hunger campaign coordinated through the AARP Foundation. The multiyear deal will be announced Wednesday by Hendrick Motorsports. A person familiar with Hendrick’s sponsorship agreement confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the official announcement had

not been made. The deal first was reported Monday by The Charlotte Observer. According to paperwork filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Hendrick Motorsports has recently requested trademarks on two different slogans: “Drive For Hunger” and “Drive 4 Hunger.” The campaign will be the first cause-related sponsorship of its kind in NASCAR, which has struggled to attract new business since the economic downturn began late in 2008.

Sponsorship dollars have been dramatically reduced, and many teams, Hendrick

included, had to let go employees while adjusting to smaller budgets.

Flavors writer Danielle Stack describes why Reeseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peanut Butter Cups are her preferred trick-ortreat treasure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a kid, my siblings and I would combine all our loot into one big bowl, but I would always be sure to sort though mine and take out all the Reeseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cups,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love peanut butter, and the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is divine and a treat I still enjoy today.â&#x20AC;?

Pearsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Salted Nut Roll Fall trail mix

Apple cider Nothing says Halloween like a mug of warm apple cider after a cold night outside. Try it with a cinnamon stick for some extra spice.

Another Halloween favorite is a homemade fall trail mix. This usually consists of candy corn, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, orange and yellow M&Ms, Craisins and raisins. This is a quick and easy snack that is both sweet and salty. The nuts are great to add a little protein and carbohydrates to keep you running all day long during midterms. The Craisins and raisins are great for antioxidants and potassium.

These delicious treats offer you more than just a sugar high. In a Fun-Size bar there is 3 grams of protein. This is three times the amount of protein found in a Fun-Size Snicker. They are high in calories, but that may be just what you need when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out late trick-or-treating.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about treats: the origin of Halloween candy By Danielle Stack AmesEats Flavors Writer The sky is dark, most of the leaves have fallen from the trees and crunch under when stepped on. It is Oct. 31, and all the neighborhood children are dressed up in costumes and walking from house to house. As the night comes to an end, they lug around pillowcases full of tasty treats, mostly candy, that have been acquired from a successful night of trick-or-treating. Once they get home, they dump their loot on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor and see what wonderful things they have received. But where did this tradition come from and why is Halloween so revolved around candy? It turns out, Halloween was derived from an old Celtic festival called Samhain, but trick-or-treating is a practice that is derived from an old European practice called â&#x20AC;&#x153;souling.â&#x20AC;? Souling is when the beggars of European cities would go door to door begging for â&#x20AC;&#x153;soul cakes,â&#x20AC;? which are a type of small bread like cake that is occasionally sweetened with cinnamon or currants. In return for a soul cake, the beggars would promise to pray for the deceased relatives of those giving the soul cakes. The more soul cakes a beggar received, the more prayers they promised to

pray. As the Irish immigrated to America, so did their practices of souling. Eventually, souling became Halloween and soul cakes became candies. The Wunderle Candy Company of Philadelphia ďŹ rst produced candy corn in the 1880s. In earlier days, treats were given out in little goody bags consisting of apples, nuts or homemade candies. In the early 1900s, mass-produced candy began to work its way into the Halloween scene. There were reports in the 1980s of people placing razors into apples and handing them out to children on Halloween. Because of this unfortunate scare, people now usually stick to giving pre-wrapped and packaged candy. Halloween has turned into a commercial holiday revolving around candy. We no longer think of Halloween as a time of prayer for deceased family members but rather a time of pounds of candy and sugar highs. If you decide to be adventurous and want to recreate an original Halloween treat, try baking some soul cakes. It is sure to impress friends or other visitors.

Cholera deaths rise to more than 1,500 By Jon Gambrell Associated Press Writer LAGOS, Nigeria â&#x20AC;&#x201D; More than 1,500 people have died in Nigeria from a cholera outbreak this year, international health officials said Monday, more than double the last estimates provided by federal officials. The deaths come as the waterborne illness continues to plague other West African nations, including tiny Benin, where humanitarian officials worry a devastating ďŹ&#x201A;ood there may spread it further. But officials hope oil-rich Nigeria will see fewer cases in the coming weeks as the dry season approaches and local governments attempt to warn people of the danger. Geneva-based UNICEF spokeswoman Marixie Mercado said Monday that as of Oct. 20, there had been 1,555 deaths in Nigeria from cholera recorded this year, with 38,173 cases reported. At last count in September, when local and federal officials in Nigeria assured the public the disease was under control, Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Ministry said there were under 800 dead and 13,000 people sickened. According to the World Health Organization statistics, the current outbreak is the worst in Nigeria since 1991, when 7,654 people died. Cholera is a fast-developing, highly contagious infection that causes diarrhea, leading to severe dehydration and possible death. The disease is easily preventable with clean water and sanitation but in places like West Africa, sanita-

tion often remains an afterthought in teeming city slums and mud-walled villages. In Nigeria, almost half the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150 million people lack access to clean water and proper sanitation, according to the WHO, even though the government earns billions of dol-

lars a year as one of Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top oil exporters. Poor basic education among rural villagers and a lack of staffed clinics and hospitals also allows the disease to quickly lead to deaths, said Chris Cormency, a UNICEF official based in Senegal monitoring the epidemic.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people have heard of cholera but have never been touched directly by cholera,â&#x20AC;? Cormency said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Next year, it might come up in the same state, but in a different region.â&#x20AC;? The most affected regions in the nation remain Bauchi, Borno, Katsina and Yobe states, Cormency said. All four sit in Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural north, comprised mostly of small Islamic villages where locals survive off the land through crops, cattle and petty trading. In many villages, sewage ďŹ&#x201A;ows down dirt paths at each heavy rains during Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wet season, allowing feces to contaminate communal wells. However, local authorities have made efforts to combat the spread of the disease. Dr. Nuhu B. Ningi, a World Health Organization physician based in Bauchi state, said public health education programs coupled with chlorinating local wells has brought down the caseload seen by area clinics in recent days. Local religious leaders, both Christian and Muslim, have been preaching about the disease as well. UNICEF officials believe the West African outbreak this year began in Nigeria, then spread to Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Benin. Benin remains particularly worrying for health officials, as ďŹ&#x201A;ooding in the nation has covered two-thirds of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s territory, leaving about 100,000 people homeless and killing at least 43 in the last two weeks. So far, more than 800 cases of cholera have been reported in the nation.
