Student discombobulation may affect


Student voters receive misleading information By Michelle.Schoening Misinformation regarding city council elections may have led to a spike in absentee ballots. Recent speculation in the city council election is getting voters’ attention. It is being speculated that a third party is portraying information in a wrongful manner to voters, especially to individuals in greek housing. Matthew Goodman, representative at large on city council, said the 4-1 precinct usually has hardly any voter participation. “The 4-1 precincts historically have hardly any absentee ballots and any voting at all,” Goodman said, “Already, after this misinformation campaign that we found out about last week, they have received nearly 100 absentee ballots out of that precinct.” Thus far, 95 absentee ballots have been requested in precinct 4-1. The total number of absentee ballots for the entire city is 286, making one-third of the total absentee ballots for the election from precinct 4-1. Fern Kupfer, ISU lecturer of English, said the misinformation is in favor of candidates with relations to builders and developers. “The reason that they did it was to scare them so they would not vote for Anne Kinzel, Victoria Szopinski and Gloria Betcher, who is president of the Historic Preservation Society in Ames,” Kupfer said. Kupfer said Kinzel, Szopinski and Betcher are not associated with the builders in Ames. “The students were told that the rental code also applies to fraternity and so-

For the Nov. 5 election of city council members, there has already been an unusaully large number of absentee ballots requested. This is probably due to students, particularly fraternity and sorority members, being misinformed by a third party about some candidates’ stances.

rority houses but hasn’t been enforced,” Kupfer said. “[The unknown third party] scared them by saying if you vote for these other people, they will tear down the sorority and fraternity houses because they will enforce the rental code.” Kupfer said this is untrue because Ames needs housing for both greek and nongreek students. Jennifer Kapaun, office manager at Hunziker, said Hunziker was not a part of the misinformation campaign. The city council and small elections are meant to be nonpartisan, neither Democrat nor Republican. However, in Ames city council elections, builders, developers and those with an interest in development are against the normal citizen or those who are against developers. The scare tactic has spiked an in-

crease in the number of absentee ballots. Goodman said the scare tactic targeted Sigma Kappa in particular. Sigma Kappa President Chrissy Jones did not wish to comment on the allegation, but an email stated she has had more girls register to vote than in previous years and is not persuading the girls to vote for a particular candidate. Josh Hill, FarmHouse fraternity president, said students in the greek community were under the impression, due to the misinformation, that if Kinzel and Szopinski were elected, they would potentially lose their houses. Victoria Szopinski, fourth ward candidate, learned about the misrepresentation of her campaign after receiving a phone call from a mother whose daughter was in Sigma Kappa.

“Cooler Cannon” upgrades tailgate, shoots beverages


ISU police search for Solo’s missing head, statue thief Valuable art piece vandalized, police seek head’s immediate return

ISU alumnus invents cooler that delivers cans to consumers By Brian.Day We’re in the midst of tailgating season at Iowa State, and in most of the tailgate lots at Jack Trice Stadium, people are using the standard, run-of-the-mill cooler to hold their beverages. One ISU alumnus decided to upgrade his tailgating experience by having his cooler shoot his drinks to him. Derek Hoy, an electrical engineering graduate from Iowa State, took this idea and ran with it. Originally, the idea was materialized in the form of a coffee table that shot your drinks to you, but Hoy said he thought that a cooler would be a much more functional way of storing and receiving your drinks. Hoy calls his invention a “Cooler Cannon.” “It’s geared more toward people tailgating and hanging out in the backyard,” Hoy said. While the product was in its beginning stages of work, a very limited amount of people were allowed to see it, and those who did were not allowed to speak of it to the public. “I kept it pretty secret, really, before the patent was issued,” Hoy said. Hoy explained how the Cooler Cannon works. A can rolls down the plank where it comes to a rest. Then, a lever and spring mechanism, powered by a 12 volt battery, shoots the can out of the lid of the cooler. With the push of a button, the cooler can shoot a 12 ounce can up to eight feet, and you don’t even

“When I heard from a parent whose daughter had come home from a meeting at the sorority and that she had been told to vote for a particular person and not for me because of my misrepresented position,” Szopinski said, “I … would appreciate an opportunity to be in front of all of those students to present the facts.” Szopinski contacted Greek Affairs and wrote an email to the greek community clarifying her position on the rental housing code. Hill said his support is for Chris Nelson, fourth ward candidate, because he would be a great liaison between greek housing and the council. Hill said at a recent chapter meeting

Derek Hoy designed a cooler that will shoot out cans to the consumer. Hoy’s product has been shown on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and on Food Network’s “Invention Hunters,” as well as being featured on ESPN’s holiday gift

have to move a muscle. The Cooler Cannon can hold up to 18 beverages at a time and can shoot one can every two seconds. Although Hoy did the majority of the engineering for the product, he had a lot of help with the graphic design aspect from a friend who lived across the street from him in college, Mike Ludwig. Ludwig, another ISU graduate, designed the logo and color scheme for the Cooler Cannon. Ludwig said that he worked on the original design for the product, which was called the “Shoot A Brew” for about six months, but they decided to change the name to appeal

to a broader market. Ludwig worked on the new design for the Cooler Cannon for about three weeks. When Hoy first showed Ludwig the product, he had a great first impression of it, Ludwig said. “When he first told me about it, I said, ‘Where can I get one?’” Ludwig said. “When I first saw it, I thought it was awesome. I can’t wait to see one with an Iowa State logo on the side of it.” Although there is no official product on the shelves yet, production is in the works, Hoy said. When it arrives in August or September of 2014, full production and distribution of the product will begin.

Solo is missing its head. ISU police are still looking for tips that will lead them to the statue’s head which was stolen Sunday, Sept. 8. at 4:15 a.m. The remaining body of Solo is still standing on the south side of The Hub. The bolt that screwed Solo’s head to the rest of the body was unscrewed and the head was taken. Darin Van Ryswyk, investigations commander, said the security video is too far away and too dark to provide any information. He also said that fingerprints were not available due to rainfall in between the time the head was stolen and the time it was reported missing. “It’s theft of the first degree, as serious as theft gets, because of the value of the head,” Van Ryswyk said. “It would be easy to say it’s a $40 or $50,000 item. The method that was used to make this isn’t done anymore. No one has the skill to reproduce this thing so it’s very valuable. From a criminal stand point, it could be incredibly serious.” William King, an in-

ternational award-winning artist from New York, created Solo more than 30 years ago. Iowa State has two other sculptures by King in the permanent collection. Nancy Girard, program coordinator for University Museums, said Solo first came to campus in 2010 as a temporary piece along with several other sculptures by King. Girard said that the university was inspired to buy Solo because of its reflection of many of the emotions Iowa State students experience. “That one Solo became so popular among the student body because they felt like it really expressed the students, and it has a really great expression of achievement and success,” Girard said. The statue itself is made out of aluminum, not a metal that would be stolen for its resale value. Van Ryswyk believes the head was stolen as more of a prank than a malicious theft. “I really want this head — which is basically not replaceable — to be returned. We’re not looking to stick someone in prison,” Van Ryswyk said. “Our objective is less about prosecuting a crime and more about returning this important piece of university history.” Girard said she believes that the fact that the head was stolen on

Students for Progressive Christianity is a campus religious organization promoting new ways of thinking about the Christian faith. A minister at the Ames United Church of Christ, a member of the Religious Leaders Association at Iowa State and an adviser to Students for Progressive Christianity, Jonathan Page described Christian organizations on campus as he sees them. “Currently on campus, there are quite a few Christian organizations representing a variety of evangelical student groups,” Page said. “One thing that’s been missing is a strong, progressive mainline Christian voice to balance out the very strong evangelical voice on campus.” The goals of Students for Progressive Christianity include an emphasis on right action over right belief, or orthopraxy over orthodoxy. Another goal is social justice. Jesus intended to make the world compassionate and loving, and

“The last thing I want to see is LGBT students on campus throw out religion because they don’t think it’s compatible [with their lifestyles] because that’s not true at all.” Zachary Houbarg

that should be the emphasis of Christian discipleship, Page said. “Another big tenet is to be welcoming of all people,” Page said. “Unlike other Christian campus organizations … that don’t welcome people who are gay and lesbian, Students for Progressive Christianity welcomes everyone to the table, just as Jesus did.” Zachary Houborg, senior in landscape architecture, serves as the group’s president. Catholic, evangelical, agnostic and atheist belief systems have all been represented at group meetings in the past, which creates great conversation about the nature of

Senior Week gives nod to student hard work, hosts biannual event By Blake.Dowson The Senior Class Council, a committee that is a part of the Student Alumni Leadership Council, will be holding its semiannual Senior Week this week. Every fall and spring semester, the Senior Class Council holds Senior Week in appreciation to all of the seniors on campus that are getting ready to graduate. “We run it each semester as a celebration of the seniors and all the hard work they’ve done here at Iowa State,” said Maura Tobin, senior in supply chain management. Senior Week is an important and special week for everybody on campus. The seniors have made it through the gauntlet and are well on their way to the ultimate goal of graduation, Tobin said. There will be free food on campus this Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until they run out of food, for all students with 90 or more credits. There will also be special bar deals for seniors 21 years and older who purchase a senior package.

Senior Week is an event going on for four days this week for students with 90 credits or more. This is Senior Class Council’s main event each year, hosted biannually. They also organize Senior Send Off and Real Life Anwers in the spring to celebrate.

Senior packages include a senior mug, shirt, koozie, carabiner bottle opener and an Alumni window cling for $10. The package can be purchased at the Alumni Center. All bar deals will be posted on the Iowa State Seniors Facebook page. On Monday, pork burgers along with chips, cookies and lemonade will be served on Central Campus. On Tuesday, there will be popcorn, lemonade and apple cider. Wednesday is “Wieners for Seniors,” and hot dogs, chips, cookies and lemonade will be served. Thursday will round out the Senior Week activities for the fall semester, and the Senior Class Council will be serving up a change of pace to end things. “On Halloween we will be handing out candy for food on campus,” Tobin said. “All of Senior Class

it’s compatible [with their lifestyles] because that’s not true at all,” Houborg said. Tallon talked about the benefits available for new students interested in joining Students for Progressive Christianity. “It opens your mind and throws some issues at you that you might not have considered before,” Tallon said. “You’ll see things in a new light, which is never a bad thing. Even if you don’t agree … you can still have some lively discussion about it.” Page also commented on potential benefits for new members involving incorporating faith with contemporary life. “There’s no reason to run away from contemporary science or contemporary philosophy. If God really did make all of this, then it all works together. It’s a question of trying to see how,” Page said. “I think some of those questions challenge us, and as a result, a lot of people run from them.” Students for Progressive Christianity meets Thursdays at 8 p.m. at Stomping Grounds in Campustown. Anyone is free to attend, Houborg said. “It’s a very loose membership structure,” Houborg said. “It ebbs and flows, but everyone is welcome.”

Michael Tallon, sophomore in architecture, talked about the nature of the meetings hosted by Students for Progressive Christianity. “You may not ascribe to our beliefs, but you can come to our meeting and we’ll have a healthy discussion,” Tallon said. The best thing about the group is that it opens up dialogue, Houborg said. “One of the reasons I like the group is that, as an LGBT individual myself, it really acts as kind of a bridge, bridging the gap between the LGBT community and the religious community where there isn’t much of a conversation going on,” Houborg said. Some students want to know what being gay means for their faiths and we try to help with those questions, Page said. “It has big implications for how you read the Bible, how you wrestle with Christian traditions, and big implications for the nature of salvation,” Page said. “We get an opportunity to think through some of these issues.” The issues being sorted out are of great importance, Houborg said. “The last thing I want to see is LGBT students on campus throw out religion because they don’t think

Halloween fun house: The Virtual Reality Application Center thrills with technology The Virtual Reality Application Center held a free Halloween fun house for children and their families on Saturday, Oct. 26. Activities included helping the Lorax make trees grow, casting spells to fend off monsters from Harry Potter, and helping Mike Wazowski rescue the kidnapped Boo. In the Star Wars room, pictured above, Joe Holub, graduate student in electrical and computer engineering, helped to train young students in the ways of the Jedi through a program he and others involved with the VRAC fully designed. The program allowed them to use a virtual lightsaber to repel 3D blasts from flying droids. The VRAC’s goal in holding the fun house is to reach out to children, and show them that technology can be used in a cool way to get them excited about it, according to Stacy MacAllister, graduate in mechanical engineering and a coordinator of the event. This year was the third that the event has taken place, and nearly 500 people came to participate.

Professor aids in discovering Kepler-56 Misaligned solar system is first of its kind to be found, analyzed By Natalie.Whitis An ISU professor has recently contributed to the discovery of a new kind of misaligned solar system. Steven Kawaler, professor of physics and astronomy, partnered with Daniel Huber, who is doing post-doctoral research at the NASA Ames Research Center in California. The system that they discovered, Kepler-56, is a red giant star orbited by three planets – two small inner planets and one massive outer planet. Because solar systems start out as a flat, whirling disc of gas and dust, most planets have flat orbits perpendicular to the axis of the star’s rotation. “The final configuration of a planetary system remembers that it was born in a disc,” said Massimo Marengo, associate professor of physics and astronomy. “So the planets tend to remain in the same plane, like the planets of the solar system.” This system does not follow that rule. None of its planets have a flat orbit. The small planets orbit in one plane, and the massive planet orbits in another. The astronomers first realized that something was different when they studied the oscillations of the star’s light. They use these oscillations to detect the angle of the star’s rotation relative to the Earth. “It’s fairly complex vibrations — like a bell. When you ring a bell it vibrates in all sorts of ways. Stars do the same thing,” Kawaler said. “If you listen to a bell from one direction it sounds different than from another direction.” They discovered that the star’s axis of rotation was not angled directly at Earth or directly perpendicular to it. This didn’t make any sense, because they could see planets orbiting between the star and planet Earth, Kawaler said. When a planet orbits a star, it blocks some of the light from that star. We can usually observe this only

Steven Kawaler, professor of physics and astronomy has recently contributed to the discovery of a new kind of misaligned solar system named Kepler-56, a red giant star that is orbited by three planets: two smaller inner planets and one large outer planet. The planets don’t orbit their star in the expected paths.

That was a mystery. Here’s a star that has planets, orbiting in what we thought was the equatorial plane which had to be pointing at us, but the oscillations tell us that the star’s pointing [another] way. Only in very few systems do you see that misalignment. In almost all cases where that happens there is a big fat planet that’s really close to the star, and in this case they’re little tiny planets.” Steven Kawaler, professor of physics and astronomy

when the star’s equator is facing Earth, because most planets orbit around the equator. The astronomers detected the two smaller planets with this method. “That was a mystery. Here’s a star that has planets, orbiting in what we thought was the equatorial plane which had to

be pointing at us, but the oscillations tell us that the star’s pointing [another] way,” Kawaler said. “Only in very few systems do you see that misalignment. In almost all cases where that happens there is a big fat planet that’s really close to the star, and in this case they’re little tiny planets.”

While writing a paper on the solar system, Huber found other papers that explained the tilt of the planets’ orbit. Computer models have shown that a massive planet far out can sustain tilted orbits and remain well-behaved. Other members of the team had access to large telescopes in Hawaii. They found the massive outer planet by observing how the mass of that planet pulled at the host star. The research on this particular solar system has come to a halt as the Kepler telescope can no longer focus on that area of the sky. Now, the team is taking a look at other planetary systems to better understand the planet formation process. “We’re now looking at these things statistically,” Kawaler said. “We’re doing a fairly detailed first look and then moving onto something else, trying to find families.”

Iowa State to offer LGBT English 250 class By Greg.Zwiers Students can now sign up for an LGBT-based English 250 course for next semester through the new LGBT nonresidential learning community. Kathryn Jaekel, English lecturer, first proposed the idea and will be teaching the class. She said her department and administration has been very supportive and helpful through the process of starting the new learning community. “We want students to see how learning to write summary or learning to write argument effectively and organize it well with good information is beneficial in their own discipline classes,” said Jeanine Aune, senior lecturer of English who is in charge of setting up English course links to learning communities. Jaekel said the class will learn the same skills as all English 250 classes, but the readings she will provide will have to do with the LGBT community and LGBT issues. She said the readings will give the class a point of entry into the different lenses and ways people view things. “This is a student group that I think has a lot of great things to say,” Jaekel said. “So I thought it would be really cool to get us together in this one course and talk about the academic and talk about the social and about how those mix and how they overlap.” Aune said she thinks a lot of students consider English 150 and 250 as more of a general education classes and don’t think about how important communication and writing skills are for every discipline. “Everybody is welcome, this is not only for lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual folks, anybody who considers themselves an ally or a part of this community,” Jaekel said. To register for the learning commu-

A new English 250 class for members of the LGBT community or allies of the LGBT community will be offered as of next semester. The class will be a part of the LGBT non-residential learning community, but it will have a similar ciriculum to the other English 250 classes.

How to sign up Before selecting any classes, type in 2051210, the learning community reference number, into the class search. The reference number for English 250 section TM is 3299560

nity, students must type in the reference number 2051210 before they sign up for any of their classes. Once a student has used the learning community reference number, they can then type in the reference number for English 250 section TM, 3299560. Jaekel said she cannot stress enough

that if a student doesn’t type in the learning community reference number first, they will not be able to sign up for the class. The TM section of English 250 is the only class offered through the LGBT learning community for next semester. Aune said learning communities have to have some outside link to the material. The class will partner with the LGBT Student Services office and will attend Out 2 Lunch sessions that have been set up by Brad Freihoefer the LGBTSS coordinator. “I’m really looking forward to the pilot program working well and word of mouth spreading that there’s this great opportunity that you can have here at Iowa State,” Aune said.

Aune said she would love to see learning communities carry on throughout students’ four years at Iowa State. Jaekel is the assistant director of ISU communication foundation courses and does a lot of curriculum work. She started thinking about having the LGBTbased English 250 course last year. Jaekel said at no point was there a struggle when she was proposing the idea. “I hope that this is with increased visibility and with increased partnerships across campus will further the work that the [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Student Services] office does and that many of us do to make this less of a stigmatizing topic,” Jaekel said.

ISU organization goes green to solve campus pollution Engineers for a Sustainable World to plant eco rain garden By Brian.Day Engineers for a Sustainable World has taken the initiative to keep Iowa State’s campus beautiful, while also helping to reduce pollution in campus’ streams and creeks.

According their website, Engineers for a Sustainable World at Iowa State is a part of a national organization that mobilizes engineering students and professionals through local and global service projects to apply engineering skills to sustainability related problems in the world. “We meet as a general club but are really focused on getting our members involved in service projects,” said Sarah Maslo, club president. “We’re try-



ing to keep the projects focused on sustainability.” The organization is in the process of building a rain garden in the space between Carver Hall and Music Hall to help with a drainage problem that causes pollution to accumulate in the creeks on campus. “Right now, there’s a problem where water will run off onto the sidewalk,” said Christina Larranaga, rain garden project leader. “So what a rain garden will do then is capture the water and bring it down to the water table instead of just letting it pool there and run off into Lake Laverne and not be able to be used” The plot of land just north of Music Hall where the garden is located was given to Engineers for a Sustainable World by Iowa State’s facilities department. Every new plot of land that is going to be used on campus must first be approved by facilities, planning and management. Originally, the plot of land for the garden was supposed to be near Frederiksen Court, but with all of the construction of the new parking lot going on around there, they decided the area would be too problematic. Part of the reason they picked the plot of land that they did was because of water build up that would freeze and make for a haz-

ard in the winter time, Larranaga said. “The rain garden will reduce the amount of water that is going to be flowing over and with the colder weather like this, water freezing on sidewalks is hazardous,” Larranaga said. “So not only is it raising awareness about sustainability, naturally filtering the water, but also reducing that hazardous problem.” The garden provides many benefits for campus other than just looking nice. Instead of the grass that is planted on the plot right now where the roots go two inches deep, the roots for the new plants that will be planted there will go about 15 feet deep. With that, the plants will take the water directly into the water table, which is from where most people get their water. It will naturally filter the water supply. Although the garden is still in the planning stages, Engineers for a Sustainable World still holds a weekly meeting, and of the 20 people in the club, about 10 to 12 people are involved with the planning committee. The rain garden project is not the only project that the club is working on. Throughout the year, they will also be working on a solar street light to install on campus and a smart phone app that will help make students more

Civil lawsuit trend needs to see change Few people would consider brushes with our legal system to be anything but a serious matter. Oddly enough though, it is increasingly home to a bizarre and wild array of seemingly laughable controversies. Most people will remember the national attention a woman received in 1994 when she suffered third degree burns from spilling McDonald’s coffee on her lap and then sued McDonald’s for damages. After refusing to settle out of court, McDonald’s was found to owe Ms. Liebeck over $2.5 million by a New Mexico jury, although a judge later reduced the amount to around $650,000. Ms. Liebeck’s story became a rallying point for civil lawsuit reform and has even been the focus of numerous documentaries. Tort law, the legal name for civil law cases, has long been seen as an important, if slightly misunderstood, part of our legal system. Normally, when someone commits a crime, like theft or assault, it is said that he has actually harmed the state, meaning the government and all of the people it protects. This is why a county or state — and sometimes the United States itself — will bring legal action against wrongs committed. Cases where someone’s actions are not necessarily a crime that the state would punish but that have caused some form of injury to another will usually be decided by civil lawsuits. These largely consist of the injured person or persons receiving money from the injuring party to make up for any loss. The amount of money received, or even that there was a case at all, all too often makes it seem like our system of laws is governed by absurd rules. A recent example of such absurdity is the nearly $40,000 received in workers’ compensation by a campus police officer from the University of California Davis. The officer in question was filmed pepper-spraying a group of sitting protesters in 2011. While the students who were sprayed have since received compensation of their own, the officer claimed that he also suffered “psychiatric and nervous system” damage as a result of his work. His award, and the awarding of other absurd monetary compensation, simply needs to stop. Yes, there are completely valid uses of civil lawsuits and there are completely valid times when the actions of an employer injures the workers. But this does not mean that legal action should be taken or threatened at the slightest provocation. It’s not always enough to rely on our system of laws to decide cases fairly. Even when a jury or judge does not find fault or cause for damages, the legal fees encountered or the negative publicity faced can be daunting challenges on their own that serve no constructive purpose. Creating a system where people genuinely think that they deserve to be given money for having their pants lost at a dry cleaners — which is exactly what happened to Roy Pearson before he sued for $67 million in the case of Pearson v. Chung — is neither what was intended by those who have created our laws nor what we should want from our justice system. While the specifics of tort reform are best left to the experts, we can all agree that the lawsuit culture of contemporary society has gone too far. But it’s not just up to those shaping our laws to begin reform — it’s our responsibility as well. Personal responsibility can be a lot to ask, and there are times when it can be very hard to live up to, but pointing fingers at corporations with deep pockets or individuals who have done nothing terribly wrong is not a real solution. Unfortunately bad things happen; this is a fact of life that won’t change anytime soon. When those bad things do happen, though, engaging in frivolous lawsuits often does more harm than good.

Columnist Schnathorst argues that God belongs in the Pledge of Allegiance and in the United States in general. Areas addressed are controversy regarding the sacred oath of the Air Force Academy and religion in school. These traditions date back to the 1950s’ Cold War.

Keep one nation under God By Danny.Schnathorst


his year, people seem to argue more than ever before. No matter the severity of the topic, you can bet that someone will take a stance on the issue. Recently, there has been an ongoing debate regarding religion in the United States. Should we take religion out of schools? Should we take God out of the Pledge of the Allegiance? Should we take God out of the courthouses? No. Absolutely not. In the 1950s, the United States was undergoing drastic changes. Color television was introduced in 1951. The polio vaccine was created in 1952. Music in the 1950s ranged from Frank Sinatra and Little Richard to Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. On May 17, 1954, something huge happened that changed America’s world forever: segregation was ruled illegal in the United States. Was it a complete success?Absolutely not. Did segregation still exist? Of course. It still exists today. No one expected the ruling of Brown v. Board of Education to take place immediately. No one expected people to immediately change their views. This wasn’t a step in U.S. history; this was a leap to the moon. In 1954, something else historic occurred: The Pledge of Allegiance was altered.“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the

republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” The phrase “one nation under God” means more than most people realize. It symbolizes equality. It symbolizes that we truly are one united nation. To me, if you remove that from the Pledge of the Allegiance, you are taking steps backward, not forward. You are negating what Rosa Parks did in 1955. In 1956, “In God we trust” became the U.S. motto. In 1957, it began to appear on paper currency. This phrase became our motto, and “one nation under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance, because the United States wanted to separate itself from the Soviet Union, who promoted state atheism. To me, nothing is more terrifying than an entire nation proclaiming that it has God behind it. Lately, there has been a recent outcry toward the Air Force Academy to get rid of the term “so help me, God” from its sacred oath. People may claim that including “so help me, God” is in disrespect toward their belief, but I beg to differ. I respect other religions and beliefs, as you should respect mine. Removing God from the oath is disrespecting my belief. The United States does respect religions other than Christianity. According to the AR 601-280, “The Army Retention Program,” Appendix D, paragraph 2k says this about the phrase: “Oath of enlistment/reenlistment. Verify with soldier to determine if he

or she prefers to ‘swear’ or ‘affirm.’ The phrase, ‘so help me, God’ may be deleted for soldiers electing to ‘affirm.’ For soldiers electing to ‘affirm,’ prepare a 3- by 5-inch card, editing the oath, for use by the administering officer.”

So why should the United States Air Force Academy have to remove God altogether? This isn’t the only attempt to get rid of God from the United States. Schools across the United States have banned prayer before football games and have banned students from writing about God as their idol. It has been in my experience that people who set out to ban religion in public places are the first to pray in horrible circumstances. I have also noticed that so many who try to get rid of God are the first to celebrate Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter. As a born and raised Christian, I would prefer to not take part in other religions’ beliefs and holidays. I personally don’t celebrate Hanukkah or Vesak. Why? It’s not my religion. Does that mean that I should campaign to get them to cease their religion? Absolutely not. Am I asking you to join my religion? Am I asking you to believe what I believe and think the way I think? No. That would be pretty unfair. All I am asking is to have the same respect for my religion. As said by Ronald Reagan, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

Price of climate change increases daily By Michael.Glawe


n a land full of economic woe, it is easy for something like a fresh climate change report to quickly lose public interest. With the help of a drama-hungry media, crises like the debtceiling debacle clouding out other matters. The report released last month by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change hopefully refocuses our concern on a more pressing issue: climate change. The findings, an unparalleled synthesis of thousands of reviewed scientific papers concluded that, indeed, current climate change is still the fault of man. The analysis claims that it is “extremely likely” that humans are responsible — around a 95 percent probability. Unsurprisingly, the report faced purely subjective opposition instead of the more useful objectiveness embraced by the scientific community. The usual suspects of climate change denial voiced their opinion, providing the public with easily ridiculed statements, such as that of our own representative Steve King, who seems to think that climate change is “more of a religion than a science.” I suppose I too have fed the fire, as I’ve often caught myself asking someone if they “believe” in climate change or if they “believe” in evolution. In what other areas of science would one feel compelled to associate the subject with a belief? Perhaps in this respect, the deniers are winning. While it is easy to poke fun at people who may not

According to columnist Glawe, climate change is viewed by many in the same light as the topic of evolution: It is a “belief.” Scientists must defend their conclusions as the time to change the trend shrinks.

understand the science behind climate change, the easy dismissal of refined evidence should scare us. Currently, around 58 percent of congressional Republicans refuse to accept the idea of man-made climate change. The Right has certainly become notorious for its blind opposition to these scientific findings, but the denial crosses party lines. This issue is nonpartisan and the substance of the matter is all-inclusive. In a Google+ Hangout with President Obama, author John Green lamented our past and current inaction, and he inquired into the difficulty of drilling through ideology to find policy. President Obama, in the most politician-like way, noted his achievements in enacting stricter fuel standards and legislation. It is feared that these efforts may be too little too late. Perhaps the propaganda machines have polarized the issue enough to where no further progress will be made. Climate change is global,

and its effect will have a substantial impact on all segments of the international economy. This issue does, after all, encompass the entirety of the Earth. That is the precise reason why the matter should be nonpartisan — we are all included as both the perpetrators and the victims. To gain any progress, there must first be at least an agreement that there exists a problem – climate change is actually happening and global temperatures are trending upward. There is, thankfully, a general agreement that climate change is underway (with the exception of a few stragglers dragging their feet). Logically, the next step is to agree that humans are the primary contributors to current climate change. That is where we run into problems. Normally, the baseless and misapprehended claims made against the evidence of man-made climate change do not warrant a response, and indeed they have run

their course. However, climate change is the one issue where it is becoming increasingly vital that scientists “step up to the plate” and defend their findings. Unlike defending evolutionary biology or cosmology, scientists must defend their evidence of manmade climate change because it represents the immediate fate of our world – a fate that we can determine. The evidence is not anecdotal or exclusive. Data in support of climate change spans many scientific fields — change in migratory patterns, water temperature changes, etc. — which reinforces the understanding that this matter affects everyone and everything. There are no political points to be won from the discussion, and it’s unfortunate that supporters of green technology and alternative fuels are monopolized on the left side of the political spectrum. A YouTube commentator reminded me that I will most likely still be alive in forty to fifty years, which is right around the time that Earth’s population will peak at ten billion people, and we’ll begin to experience the truly significant effects of climate change. What is saddening is that we are failing miserably to break down the partisan walls that hinder progress, and that places us on the track toward an unnecessary end. With each passing day, the situation grows more dire. As we inch our way toward irreparable damage, the true price of denial will begin to manifest. Upon arrival, the denizens of Earth will look back upon this time and lament our failure, just as we “believers” lament today.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Grant Rohach drops back to pass while under pressure during Iowa State’s 58-27 loss to Oklahoma State at Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday. Rohach replaced starting quarterback Sam Richardson after he sustained an injury during the second quarter of play.

Cowboys trample Cyclones Iowa State falters from penalties, turnovers against Oklahoma State By Dylan.Montz Penalties and turnovers that resulted in touchdowns and tackles that were missed combined to be a recipe for disaster for Iowa State. The Cyclones (1-6, 0-4 Big 12) dug themselves into a 21-0 hole early and couldn’t manage to climb all the way out as they lost to Oklahoma State 58-27 on Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium. Iowa State was at a 21-0 disadvantage less than 10 minutes into the game including an interception thrown by Sam Richardson to

Oklahoma State’s Justin Gilbert resulting in a touchdown. The ISU offense was finally sparked by a 38-yard pass from quarterback Sam Richardson to tight end E.J. Bibbs. The drive culminated in a 22-yard touchdown catch for Quenton Bundrage, and the Cyclones began to find a foothold on offense. “We had an atrocious start and then both Sam and Grant [Rohach] and the offense started executing and doing some things,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads. “Keys in the passing game are throwing accurate balls and catching them. We started doing those things when we scored the three touchdowns.” After Richardson left the game due to an upper back injury near the beginning of the second quarter with the score 28-14 in favor of Oklahoma State, the ISU offense turned to Rohach, the redshirt freshman quarterback who led the

Cyclones to an 11-play, 54-yard drive that resulted in Bundrage’s 20-yard touchdown catch. Only down 28-20 at halftime, Iowa State couldn’t recreate the success it had on offense in the second quarter and allowed Oklahoma State to score 24 unanswered points, effectively putting a win out of reach. After playing against Baylor last week, Rohach was 12-of-23 passing for 97 yards and a touchdown, but he realized there were throws he missed to give the Cyclones a chance answer the Cowboys. “I can put a lot of the blame on me for not hitting guys when they were open and not checking us to the right run play we should be in,” Rohach said. “Pretty much just shooting ourselves in the foot.” Iowa State also put itself in unfavorable field positions and tallied eight penalties for 52 yards after the first half compared to

the zero committed by Oklahoma State. Missed tackles on defense also piled up as the Cyclones allowed just 78 yards passing by the Cowboys, but gave up 342 on the ground. Senior linebacker Jeremiah George attributed the run game to somewhat unsound play by the ISU defense in the gaps of the Cowboys’ offensive line and penalties that kept Iowa State on the field after stops on third down. After two consecutive weeks of giving up 71 and 58 points respectively, George’s confidence in his team and Rhoads isn’t shaken. “I’ve got one of the best coaches in the country, if not the best,” George said of Rhoads. “He does nothing but teach and encourage, put his arm around guys. He trust[s] us and we trust him, so I have so much confidence. I’m just ready to keep playing with this team, this family.”

NOTEBOOK: OSU run game, injuries cripple Iowa State By Dean.Berhow-Goll The ISU offense out gained Oklahoma State through the air and ran the ball for more than 150 yards on the ground for

the fourth time this season. but the snowball effect of turnovers and injuries led to Oklahoma State running away with the game, putting the win out of reach before the fourth quarter arrived.

“Playing an opponent like that you can’t make mistakes, you can’t turn the ball over, you can’t have foolish penalties,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads. “We had way too much of that in 60 minutes to give ourselves an opportunity to win the football game.” ISU quarterback Sam Richardson suffered a concussion in the second quarter on a hit from behind, sending in backup Grant Rohach for the second straight game in a relief role. Rohach led Iowa State to a score on his first possession going 3-4 for 34 yards capped by a 20-yard back shoulder touchdown by Quenton Bundrage. After the scoring driver, however, Rohach finished the game having completed only nine of his 19 passes for 63 yards with one connection to Ernst Brun being stripped and taken back for a touchdown. “There’s no excuse for not making plays and throwing strikes when guys were open,” Rohach said. “Guys are open; you need to hit them to continue the drive.” Defensive woes

Redshirt freshman defensive end Mitchell Meyers tackles OSU running back Desmond Roland during Iowa State’s 58-27 loss to Oklahoma State at Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday.

Injury Updates: ƒƒ Quarterback Sam Richardson suffered a concussion in the second quarter and did not return. Rhoads said he had a concern about his head and neck area. He expects him to practice this week and play on Saturday. ƒƒ Luke Knott missed the game due to a recurring hip and groin injury. He could have played this week, but Rhoads said he would not have been at full speed. ƒƒ Willie Scott missed the game for “Failure to execute the expectations of his program,” Rhoads said. ƒƒ Aaron Wimberly has a lingering hamstring injury he aggravated in Thursday’s practice. He expects to play next week. ƒƒ E.J. Bibbs hurt his shoulder in the second quarter but finished the game and is expected to play next week. ƒƒ Jarvis West has an MCL injury that Rhoads expects to have him sidelined for about four weeks.

Absent from the defense during the Oklahoma State game due to injury was starting linebacker Luke Knott, who ranks No. 3 on the team in tackles. Also missing was starting defensive end Willie Scott, who is No. 2 on the roster in tackles for loss. Without two stong starters in the front seven, the group could not stop Oklahoma State from controlling the game via the ground, plowing for 342 total yards on the ground, with 235 of those yards

coming in the second half alone. “Our job is to stop them, so I put the blame all on us,” said ISU linebacker Jeremiah George. “I have nothing but respect for those guys over there, but our job as defenders is to be in the correct spots, have the correct gap and make the tackle when you’re presented the chance and we didn’t do that.” Coming into the game, the Cowboys were No. 95 in the nation on the ground, and OSU running back

Desmond Roland had only 147 yards in his career. In his first career start, he finished the game with 219 yards on 26 carries and four touchdowns, averaging 8.4 yards per carry. Through the first half, Roland had only tallied 54 yards on 11 carries with two scores, but in the second half he toted the ball 15 times for 165 yards and another pair of touchdowns. “They ran for 342 yards,” Rhoads said of OSU. “Whoever was carrying, it was impressive.”

ISU servers come up big in sweep of Texas Christian ISU volleyball earns 3-0 win against TCU Horned Frogs By Clint.Cole

Brian Achenbach/Iowa State Daily

Freshman Ciara Capezio serves the ball during Iowa State’s win over TCU in straight sets on Saturday at Hilton Coliseum. ISU servers amped up their intensity for Saturday’s game against the Horned Frogs.

A crowd of 3,398 was on hand at Hilton Coliseum on Saturday to watch the Cyclones get behind a dominant serving performance en route to a 3-0 sweep against Texas Christian. The Cyclones (12-6, 6-2 Big 12) had a season-high 13 aces in the match against the Horned Frogs (13-9, 2-6 Big 12). Kristen Hahn had a career-high four aces in the match against TCU while Tory Knuth, who led the Big 12 in aces already going into the match, Caitlin Nolan and Ciara Capezio had three each. Hahn tied her career high of three aces right away in the first set alone and added one more in the third set. “My goal this week was to try and have more points out of my serving rotation and just get more opportunities for my

team,” Hahn said. “I’ve been really focusing on driving my serve and matching my teammates’ intensity on the serving line and them being such great servers, it’s really helpful and allows you to really go after the ball and know that you can be aggressive.” Capezio said that serving was one of their primary goals in practice last week. “It really came out in that game and it’s pretty awesome,” Capezio said. ISU coach Christy JohnsonLynch said she didn’t know why the serving was so good in that match specifically but reiterated that they worked on it a lot and that it continues to be an “elite” part of their game. “You really need to do a couple of things well and you need to keep at it and keep practicing it and we had a pretty terrific serving night, I thought,” Johnson-Lynch said. Hahn finished the match with 16 digs, which made for the 58th-straight match where she has had 10 or more digs. She struggled early, however, having just two digs in the first set. She

[Practicing intensity] allows you to really go after the ball and know that you can be aggressive.” Kristen Hahn, libero

turned the tables and added six more in the second set and eight more in the third set. “I just felt like I wasn’t in the right positions in the first set,” Hahn said. She said that one part of her turnaround was making sure she was “stopped on contact” in the second and third sets. “I think that’s my big thing is making sure that when the hitters are hitting the ball I’m stopped and ready to be able to read the play,” Hahn said. “Our hitters got really good touches and our blockers got really good touches and being able to pick up their tips allowed us to run a better offense too.”

Cyclone hockey splits with rival Ohio By Jared.Stansbury It was a tale of two nights when the Cyclone hockey team took to the ice for a series with conference rival Ohio. Friday night defense was the name of the game as the Bobcats (8-3-1, 1-10 CSHL) were able to pick up the 1-0 win against the Cyclones (11-2-1, 3-1-0 CSHL). On Saturday, the ISU offense came to play, picking up three goals in the first period on the way to a 4-3 win for a split of the series. For ISU coach Al Murdoch, one of the biggest differences from nightto-night was that Ohio only

played two lines compared to Iowa State’s four. “Their top two lines are good,” Murdoch said. “But our four lines combined are better.” The fourth line of the ISU attack came up big on Saturday night when sophomore Scott Antonsen was able to pick up two goals, including the game winner. Antonsen, who scored his second and third goals of the year Saturday, gives all the credit to his linemates for getting him the puck. “I can’t take all the credit, I am nowhere without them,” Antonsen said. “We have been a little snake-bit lately. But, the harder we work, the more chances we got, and finally the puck

went in the net.” Senior goaltender Matt Cooper was also a major bright spot during the series, according to Murdoch. “He played absolutely outstanding in the net,” Murdoch said. “He once again gave us the opportunity to win.” Senior forward Jon Feavel also gave a great deal of credit to the senior goaltender. “He is the reason that we are playing the way we are,” Feavel said. “Even if we don’t show up in front of him, like Friday, he is still playing his heart out back there.” Feavel played a key role in the game on Saturday, as he was able to pick up a goal, his sixth of the season, to ex-

tend his team’s lead in points. Iowa State was able to outshoot the Bobcats during the series 56-53, which was a number that really stuck out to Murdoch. Murdoch said he had a meeting with the captains on Saturday after the way the team played on Friday night. “I laid out the game plan to the captains before the game,” Murdoch said. “They bought into it, and when the captains bought in, that led to a win over a very, very good Ohio University team.” Murdoch said with a smile and a laugh that his biggest disappointment was not getting five goals on Friday. “I just wish we could have gotten that last goal

for ‘five goals for fries’ at McDonald’s,” Murdoch said. “I wanted to send the near-

sellout crowd home happy. We just couldn’t get one more for those fries.”

Justin Dodge, ward one candidate and assistant adviser to Delta Tau Delta, believes the increase in absentee ballots is due to a growing interest of Section 13 in the Ames Rental Housing Code. “I would attribute that to the Section 13 of the Ames Rental Housing Code and its effect on greek housing,” Dodge said. “Students in general are not very participatory on the local government level, but when you have an issue like that that directly affects them, I think it got them engaged in the process.” Goodman and Kupfer are not discouraging young adults to vote, but they find the number and location of absentee ballots suspicious. Dodge said many of the candidates have shared their point of view with the Office of Greek Affairs and all the candidates have the same opinion. “To eliminate it to just those two [Nelson and Corrieri] just isn’t fair… Victoria, Amber, Chris,

myself, Peter share the same perspective,” Dodge said. Nelson said the biggest concern is about how this issue was raised. “Our campaign has not been negative in any other venue … I approached the greek system as a way to engage the student body,” Nelson said. Nelson said he went to three individual chapter meetings, following a script stating his position and reasoning to vote for him for city council. “I have a script that I use when I do it that has no bad information about Victoria and the fact the she would shut the greek system down if she were elected,” Nelson said, “It is totally and utterly untrue coming from me or anyone associated with my campaign.” Nelson said he went as far as returning to Sigma Kappa and clarifying Szopinski would not tear down the greek system if elected. “I think we need to make a better effort to come to campus and reach out to students … looking for new ways to make sure we are doing more things together,” Szopinski said. The city council election will take place on Nov. 5.

>>SOLO p1 the same weekend as the Cy-Hawk game could be why the statue was defaced, or at least why people were roaming campus at 4:15 a.m. Whether the head was taken by an ISU student or an Iowa student is not something about which Girard or Van Ryswyk said they are able to speculate. “I think that there’s just certain weekends on campus where things escalate, and that’s one of them,” Girard said. “Veishea would be another one. There’s no way in knowing or saying who it was.” Both Van Ryswyk and Girard think the head was stolen because it was easy to detach and infinitely smaller than the rest of the statue—making it easy to carry away. However, Girard said it is still inexcusable. “I think it was them just deciding to be disrespectful. I think it’s disrespectful to the students because that is something that is part of their university and something specifically that a lot of them felt represented them,” Girard said. “It’s disrespectful to art in general.” Girard said the body of Solo may be taken down soon. University Museums is trying to create a plan as to what will happen if the head is never returned. Girard said that no matter what, the result will be something different than the original Solo statue. Girard also said that William King, who is now in his 80s and in poor health, has been very generous and understanding. She mentioned that Iowa State has not approached

Bill King’s sculpture called “Solo,” located south of Morrill Hall, is currently headless. The head is one of a kind, and it could be valued at around $40 or $50,000. It is a first-degree theft, but the University Museums just want the head returned.

him about making a replacement due to his health conditions, but King’s fabricator, Jim Barton, could provide an alternative if need be. Fundraising for the alternative could take a number of years. “That would always be our goal to get that back on view because that one especially we feel like is a really great celebration of students on campus,” Girard said of Solo. Girard said that students care about the defaced statue because many ISU students chose to attend Iowa State due to the beautiful campus. “The purpose of the public art collection is really to enhance

their education. No matter what their major is, it’s important to get an experience and interaction with culture and with the arts,” Girard said. “Whether they can specifically name these different pieces, that’s not really the point, because it’s part of that overall aesthetic and visual quality of the university.” Van Ryswyk would like to remind students that if they have any information regarding Solo, they can call ISU police at 515-294-4428 and report anonymously. “If somebody walks into a dorm room, or a fraternity house, or an apartment and they see it and say, ‘oh hey, that’s cool where’d you get that?’” Van Ryswyk said. “If somebody out there knows something about it, if they’re embarrassed that they were a part of it, or they’re ashamed and would love to find a way to discreetly return it, that would be fine.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is an 8 -- You’re being challenged, giving you an opportunity to show your worth. Be tough. You may even surprise yourself. You’ll have time to play, too. Opposites attract even more so now. Find a way to share resources with a partner.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 9 -- Give yourself the room to grow, even if that means letting go of things you’ve been hanging on to for no particular reason. Out with the old, and in with new income and possibilities. Renovate the way you provide great service.
