Police plan Halloween crackdown on DUIs By Makayla.Tendall

where the mistake had been made while Pearce, Pringnitz and Breider went through their records. “We haven’t had the most wonderful, awesome precise record keeping system in the past, which is something we’re very proud of now having,” Pringnitz said. When they found out that the offline donations had been counted twice, they called Sarah Adkins, fundraising coordinator for the Children’s Hospital, to figure out where to go from there. After discussing the options, Adkins suggested that because Dance Marathon is a student organization, it could change the records to reflect the actual amount of money raised, Pringnitz said. “We are so appreciative of the

The Ames Police Department will implement a “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement effort this Halloween to crack down on drunk driving. Geoff Huff, public information officer and investigations commander for Ames police, said there will be extra officers all across the city of Ames who will specifically be looking for behaviors that signal someone is “buzzed” or drunk driving. Huff said these signs include running red lights or stop signs, weaving outside their lane and stopping at green lights or not going when a red light turns green. Emily Belloma, freshman in open option, said she supports the enforcement effort for Thursday night. “I think it’s pretty necessary,” Belloma said. “I know a lot of stuff is going down, and I’m really against drunk driving. I just think it’s a stupid thing; it’s easily avoidable.” Belloma, who said she personally knows people who have driven while under the influence of alcohol was shocked to hear that from 2007-11, 52 percent of all national fatalities occurring on Halloween night involved a drunk driver, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “That’s just way too big a number,” Huff said. Huff said taking preventative measures to ensure the citizens of Ames, including children who may be swarming the sidewalk, are safe is the main reason Ames police are cracking down on drunk driving.

The final fundraising amount is revealed at the end of the 2013 Dance Marathon with a total of $388,457.16 on Jan. 26. Because of a miscalculation between online and offline funds, original amount was actually $61,445 higher than actual total, $327,032.16.

ISU Dance Marathon miscalculates donations Actual funds tally $61,445 less than original estimate By Greg.Zwiers Dance Marathon leaders realized a mistake in their calculated total when the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital asked for their donation. The offline contributions were counted twice, resulting in the actual amount being $61,445 short of the initial total. The amount that was first calculated was $388,477.16, but the actual amount of money raised was $327,032.16. “We were entering offline information into the online source to reflect the actual fundraising amounts of the dancers, so that they knew what they

were receiving at all times,” said Megan Breider, senior in biology and finance director for Dance Marathon. Last year was the first year using a new system to keep track of donations and some of the complications of the system were not factored in, said Jessica Pearce, senior in kinesiology and health and co-director of Dance Marathon. The committee discovered the error in August, said Anna Pringnitz, senior in communication studies and codirector of Dance Marathon. Online donations go directly to the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital, and a request typically is made in August for a check for the remaining amount. “The amount they asked, we didn’t have it in our account, so we knew something was wrong,” Pearce said. It took several weeks to find out

Local chocolate shop Halloween traditions creep to celebrate 100 years into international cultures By Lissandra.Villa

Tucked between other businesses on the 300 block of Ames’ Main Street is a small business with a history as rich as the chocolate found behind its glass display cases. Chocolaterie Stam is a fine European chocolate company with a history going back to the early 1900s. The Ames store was the first to open up shop with nonfamily owners, but that will not be stopping it from celebrating the company’s 100th anniversary on Thursday. In 1913, Jacobus Stam, founder of the shop, was convinced to turn his bakery to a chocolate-only shop. “The Stam family has produced chocolate ever since,” said Terry Stark, owner of the Ames store. “Ton [Stam] ended up coming to America, and opening some Stams in Des Moines.” After noticing

Halloween has been a celebrated holiday nationwide in the United States since the 1800s. But, it is a holiday that only recently started to be celebrated in some countries. “Only in the past few years, [we] have gotten the influence from Western countries to celebrate Halloween,” said Kiran Rane, junior in electrical engineering and international student from India. India is a very diverse country with numerous traditions and festivals but a nation-wide celebration for Halloween doesn’t exist, said Caroline Pereira, sophomore in aerospace engineering and international student from India “It is starting out in big cities like Mumbai,” Pereira said. People might host Halloween parties to which one comes dressed up. Some parents will take their children to upscale restaurants which have little parties as well. “I haven’t seen kids go from door to door, “ said Rane. Trick-or-treating is unknown to children, she said. During Halloween season in Mexico, two festivals are celebrated — Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, and Halloween. On Nov. 2, the Day of the Dead, families remember their deceased relatives. “They dedicate an entire offering to them as a remembrance,” said David Servin Rivera, sophomore in finance and international student from Mexico. “It is a very colorful celebration. They will take

colored rice paper, cut different figures out and use them as decorations. The colors used will be Halloween colors like black, orange and purple.” Another decoration for that event is an orange flower called cempasuchil, that has a very strong smell. It is specifically used for that day, and might be dyed black or purple. “That day, basically the people believe that their dead relatives come down to earth to enjoy life again,” Rivera said. “People will cook their favorite meal and set up some off their favorite stuff, like a guitar for example, and in between those offerings they will put candles to guide the spirits to come down to earth.” After the celebration the food will be thrown away since the deceased have eaten it.

Tau Beta Pi honor society organizes national convention for engineers By Antonia.Hutzell

Calendar Thursday

For the first time ever, the Campustown Student Association is holding a Food Crawl. Gabby Williams, president of the Campustown Student Association said the event is free and will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday. The event will have free food samples available from a variety of Campustown restaurants including Jimmy Johns, Fighting Burrito, Domino’s, Charlie Yoke’s, Jeff’s Pizza, Arcadia, Wise Guys, Subway, Battles Bar-B-Q and Dunkin’ Donuts. Williams said the goal of the event is to put on something fun and free for students. “The businesses have been really generous with this, even more generous than I imagined or anticipated,” Williams said. Williams said those wishing to participate can register on the Campustown Student Association Facebook page. T-shirts are available when registering, and those who buy T-shirts will be entered in a raffle to win a gift card. Students participating in the

event are expected to meet at the Arcadia Cafe located on Lincoln Way. Williams said a member of the Campustown Student Association will take a group of roughly 10 or 15 people to each of the businesses. “So students [don’t even have to] worry about, ‘well where am I going next?’” Williams said. “They are just kind of going with us.” Williams said the food crawl is one of the biggest free events around campus. “Fighting Burrito is giving away almost half a burrito,” Williams said. “It’s just more food than you could possibly eat.” In addition to free food, Williams said hundreds of dollars in gift cards will be given away in various categories including best costume. “We have free pizzas to give away, free cheesy bread to give away, free Dunkin’ Donuts to give away,” Williams said. Williams said the businesses really want to give back to the students and this is the way they are doing that.

co-chairman of the Tau Beta Pi Convention. According to the College of Engineering’s website, the Tau Beta Pis’ goals are to recognize excellence among freshman and sophomore engineers, build a community of engineers spanning all eight departments within the college and promote Tau Beta Pi membership in the junior or senior year. The Iowa State Tau Beta Pi chapter won its bid in 2010 and the members have been planning for the convention ever since. “We have been planning this for a long time and it is nice to see that things are starting to come together nicely,” said German Parada, senior in chemical engineering and co-chairman of the Tau Beta Pi Convention. Tau Beta Pi members have been spending many hours working closely with their advisers and the College of Engineering to organize this event. Some of the organization duties included providing transportation and hospitality for the attendees and recruiting volunteers to help out with the convention. “Even as a student, you can help plan and organize this sort of event. It is a great experience to practice leadership skills,”

Parada said. “I want to encourage students to get involved in their organizations and venture off and try something different. As a student, this is definitely a learning experience.” The Tau Beta Pi members hope to satisfy the needs of the attendees and ensure they enjoy their time at Iowa State. “Organization of the whole thing is a huge deal,” Anderson said. This three-day convention will bring together almost 500 attendees, including Tau Beta Pi officials, faculty advisers and representatives of each chapter from across the country to discuss business of the organization such as current events and small group discussions. The convention agenda will consist of an awards banquet, business and committee meetings, tours around campus and through the various engineering departments. Anderson said he is excited for the convention, especially for working on the event for more than a year. “The convention is a great way to meet engineers across the country and make contacts while working with other high level students,” Anderson said.

Design graduate student draws inspiration from mathematics for park’s new sculpture By Mackensie.Mooree Not many students are given the opportunity to turn their ideas into a public display while still in the school. For Earle Rock, his dreams became reality. The city of Marion, Iowa, was creating a sculpture trail this past summer and looking for artists to create pieces for Lowe Park. Former ISU lecturer Michael Stanley was contacted and passed the opportunity onto the students in his contemporary sculpture class. Motivated by math, Rock drew inspiration for his piece from a mathematical formula known as the golden ratio. “Math plays a lot into how I decide to do what I do,” the graduate student in integrated studio arts said. The golden ratio is a formula which the Greeks discovered. The golden ratio was created from a rectangle with a set of proportions that look most pleasing because of its duplicating nature. When the radii of the rectangles are connected, a spiral forms, creating the golden ratio. After learning about the golden ratio in an undergraduate math class, Rock decided to look into it further and discovered

that this mathematical principle is a part of many famous art pieces, such as the “Mona Lisa.” “I wanted to talk about the golden ratio in a threedimensional form because it usually is represented flat,” Rock said. The process began with constructing a small model in 3-D, in which he then drew. Next, he wrote a proposal that explained his idea, inspiration, what materials were needed, the approximate budget, how large it would be and the intent of the piece. Then his piece was accepted. He went to Custom Steel Services in Ames to construct the piece. To ensure that his piece would work, Rock needed to make sure the math for the piece was correct. He then approached Mikesch Muecke, associate professor of architecture, for help with his sculpture. “It’s been fun. Although I am in architecture, I am very interested in art, so it was a natural fit,” Muecke said. Together they worked out the geometry of the sculpture. They determined where support points should go and if the structure would be structurally sound. Because the piece was to be created out of a flat bar material, they had

to figure out how to make the curvature correct and still stay true to the golden ratio. “I knew I wanted it to be engaging and big enough to grab someone’s attention and give them that ‘wow’ moment,” Rock said. The finished piece is

approximately 9 feet high, 13 feet wide, 21 feet long with the spiral being 33 feet long and curled, allowing viewers to walk in, around and through the piece to offer a different perspective. “Rock’s ideas cross the traditional boundaries of what an artist is supposed

to do, and I am very happy that he reaches out to bring in people from different disciplines for his work,” Muecke said. A learning experience for Rock, this was his first experience not constructing a piece himself and having to entrust someone else with his vision.

“The biggest thing was letting go of control. While I would prefer to have my hands on the piece, that just simply wasn’t an option,” Rock said. Rock would like to continue to construct sculptures and pursue other artistic areas or possibly even teach one day.

Bridge Engineering Center seeks better method for construction By Seth.Young

WebFilings employs 800 people overall including more than 300 in Ames and is adding 700 jobs over the next five years.

Local business to add 700 more jobs in next five years By Varad.Diwate A technology company in Ames is expanding and adding 700 jobs over the next five years. WebFilings, a company providing business reporting solutions, will have positions in software and Web development and customer success, a WebFilings spokesperson said. She added that the average pay-scale for these positions would be between $50,000 and $75,000. The firm already has 50 ISU interns. During the next five years, the positions would be added as needed. The Ames Tribune reported the firm would receive a $2.5 million forgivable loan and a fiveyear zero-percent-interest loan of $2.5 million from the Iowa Economic Development Authority. It would also receive a 10year property abatement from the city of Ames. “The state of Iowa has been a long-time supporter of WebFilings,” said Matthew Rizai, WebFilings’ CEO, in a news release. “This is just one of the reasons why we have chosen to scale our software company in Ames. Today’s award is another example of Iowa’s commitment to growing quality jobs.” Founded in 2008, WebFilings is based in Ames and Mountain View, California. The company also has offices in eight additional U.S. cities as well as in Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The company has 60

percent of Fortune 500 companies as clients including eBay, Best Buy and Delta Airlines. WebFilings employs 800 people overall including more than 300 in Ames. The products listed on its website include Securities and Exchange Commission reporting, board reporting and data collection. Steve Carter, director of ISU Research Park, said the financial incentives present a growth opportunity “unique and far reaching throughout Ames and surrounding communities” and it wouldn’t be possible without WebFilings choosing ISU Research Park as its employee base. The expansion is part of a growing information technology sector in Iowa. “If you look at the critical mass that is evolving in software in Central Iowa, this has become a brighter place overtime for attracting software development industry,” said Dan Culhane, president and CEO of Ames Economic Development Commission. He said the incentives were given based on WebFilings’ record in capital investment and creating jobs. He also said tech companies are trying to tap into the talent from Iowa State. “We are working with various companies ... from startups to companies from abroad looking to expand operations here. Our pipeline remains full and we remain optimistic we’ll continue to see good things happen in the Ames community,” Culhanesaid.

The ISU Bridge Engineering Center, which conducts research on the evolution and improvement of bridge construction, will be working with the new U.S. Department of Transportation Center on projects in the near future. ISU students and faculty have studied, developed and tested newer more efficient ways of bridge construction for years. Their work has resulted in the forming of many new state policies that dictate the use of one such method, dubbed Accelerated Bridge Construction. “Normally to build a new bridge where an existing one was, they close the road for six to eight months,” said Brent Phares, director of the Iowa State Bridge Engineering Center. “The idea behind accelerated bridge construction is to reduce that to something much shorter.” Recently the center worked along side the DOT on a bridge replacement project outside of Massena, Iowa. In order to minimize the time for which the road was obstructed, the “accelerated construction” methods were utilized. “The road would have been closed for eight to nine months,” Phares said. “Instead it was closed for nine days.”

Instead of demolishing the existing bridge to start, they built the replacement directly adjacent to it. Once construction on the new bridge was concluded, the old structure was simply torn down and the new one slid into place. The detour near Massena stretched for 17 miles. Phares said such detours carry what he calls “societal costs.” These costs are primarily derived from the extended driving time caused by the detour. The longer the cars are running, more greenhouse gases are emitted, cars will need to have its tank refilled more frequently, not to mention the mere inconvenience to people who regularly traverse that route on a schedule. The grant awarded to the center by the DOT is a two-year award, which amounts to $2,828,200. Researchers for the center are required to produce an additional $400,000 in matching grants, which comes to $1.2 million in funding for the center’s research. Phares said the center hopes to find six graduate students from Iowa State working on projects which will use this funding per year and that the grant will remain in effect. The grant will cover those prospective students’ tuition as well as their monthly stipends. “We’ll probably also involve

some undergraduate research assistants on an as needed, projectby-project basis,” Phares said. Phares said they might involve undergraduate research assistants for lab work or data reduction on an as needed basis. “Anytime you can bring more researchers to the table you can expect a better product,” said Matt Rouse, bridge engineering specialist for the center.

>>CHOCOLATE p1 Americans’ willingness to buy high-end foods, Ton Stam, grandson of Jacobus, wrote to his family in Europe requesting the family recipes, Stark said. Today, the chain has branched out to different cities. The Ames store is filled with candies ranging from chocolate frogs, chocolate tulips, locally produced gelato, and wines from Iowa vineyards. “We think we have a fun atmosphere in our shop for people to come into Ames and either get what they want … or come in and sit for a while and visit,” said Anne Stark, co-owner of the Ames store and Terry Stark’s wife. The chocolate is made with no waxes or preservatives. Terry said that if the temperature gets to be 68 degrees, the chocolate begins to get “stressed.” Terry said he first approached Ton in 2005 after retiring from a 30-year law enforcement career. Terry was looking to own a small business but was not sure what kind. On a whim, Terry said he asked Ton if he would be interested in letting people outside of his family enter the business.

This weekend, police are planning on cracking down on drunk driving and other dangerous activities. It is important to be responsible when celebrating Halloween and other events. There are many safe transportation alternatives to driving drunk.

>>POLICE p1 “The big thing that we are trying to get across is plan early,” Huff said. “If you’re going to go out and you’re going to drink, either make sure you’ve got a way to get home that’s safe whether you can walk home or whatever, or get a sober driver.” He also wanted to remind celebrators that a designated driver is “someone who does not drink at all, not just whoever drank the least.” Huff said about 10 percent of people on the roadways on any given Friday or Saturday night are impaired. When factoring in that Halloween falls on a Thursday, which many ISU students recognize as “Mug Night,” there could be an even higher percentage of impaired drivers on the roads. Belloma said she agreed: “I think it’s going to be crazier definitely just because it’s Thursday, it’s ‘Mug Night.’ Everyone’s going to be out and about.” Huff said there are many alternatives to drunk driving including CyRide, taxi services in Ames or a designated driver. He said an easy way to prevent yourself from drunk driving is to simply not drive to wherever you’re going in the first place. “I think a lot of the folks that go to Campustown walk, so that’s great,” Huff said. “If you plan on going to Campustown or downtown or wherever there’s a bar to drink, don’t drive there. ... We do get complaints occasionally from people who drive either downtown or to Campustown and they start drinking and decide they don’t want to drive and they make the right

>>HALLOWEEN p1 More recently, on the actual day of Halloween, people have also started to celebrate. There will be parties, trick-or-treating and dressing up, Rivera said. “But in Mexico, that has been twisted a bit since it is actually scary stuff,” Rivera said. “There

choice. They leave their car there and then they get mad because they get a parking ticket.” He said having a better plan is essential. Drunk drivers who do get pulled over will be held in the Story County Jail, usually overnight. Most people are released the next morning after seeing a judge. Huff said drivers also face legal fees which could be thousands of dollars if they decide to contest their charge. Many drunk drivers often forget that insurance fees that double or triple because of an OWI can be one of the biggest financial consequences, Huff said. He also mention that young males, statistically speaking, are particularly at risk of being involved in a traffic crash as a result of “buzzed” or drunk driving. If convicted, drivers under the influence will lose their license for an undetermined amount of time. “We’re going to be out there. We’re going to be looking for it. We hope we’re bored, that’s great,” Huff said.

children walking from door to door will actually sing a song rather than use the known trick or treat phrase, Rivera said. “It is pretty hilarious. It goes a bit like, ‘the skeleton is hungry, do you have a bit to share?’” Rivera said. “They go from house to house singing the same song over and over.”

Last year there was not a distinction between the different sources of donations, which allowed for the double counting of the offline money.

Adkins said ISU Dance Marathon has been a loyal partner for 18 years. Dance Marathon has set a goal of raising $465,000 for this year, which represented an increase of 20 percent from the miscalculated figure of $380,000, Pearce said.

Peace in GOP requires focus on early errors Last week the Iowa GOP hosted the Ronald Reagan Commemorative Dinner. The sold-out event featured Iowa Republican leadership, including U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley and Gov. Terry Branstad. Also arriving in our fair state for the dinner was Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas. While the motives for Cruz appearing in Iowa are rather clear — it’s never too early for 2016 — his appearance brings to head a recent and oh-so public divide within the Republican Party. On the one hand, Branstad and many of his fellow economic conservatives hold a pragmatic view of governance and encourage fiscal responsibility and limited government that comes across to some hardliner conservatives as weak or diluted. On the other hand, Cruz and his following have ideas based upon ideology that might as well be cast in stone and a no-holds-barred take on wrestling our country from those they feel are leading us down the wrong path. While these two groups of the GOP certainly agree on a wide variety of issues, they differ on how they seek to bring life to their causes. That difference will only be exacerbated in the coming years, as we will once again face national political campaigns. Instead of taking Branstad’s advice and following President Ronald Reagan’s “11th commandment” (not speaking poorly of other Republicans,) the Republican Party needs to take the precious months not relegated to nationwide campaigns to figure out exactly where their party should position itself. It is obvious that tensions exist between various groups in the GOP — one need not look further than the often inflammatory remarks the recent government shutdown prompted by such republican lawmakers as Sen. John McCain, of Arizona and Rep. Peter King, New York — but that does not mean that the party must keep itself divided. Doing so only harms the conservative interests in America, just as the Republican Party injured itself so severely when President Theodore Roosevelt returned to run under the flag of the Bull Moose Party of his own invention designed to take on what he considered a failing Republican Party. At the time, it was understandable that the two factions would split. Today, it is equally understandable that the Republican Party seems to be moving in such a direction. The current GOP, however, should learn from its previous mistakes. Instead of refraining from hashing out their differences in full view of the public, the Republican Party needs to seize the opportunity to show that they are not two completely distinct groups, merely that they have disagreements, as any political coalition should. Putting off discussion of the public rift in their party will only lead to future anguish and confusion. Looking back to the Republican presidential candidates of 2012, distinct lines can be drawn between social conservatives, such as Rick Santorum, who eventually took the Iowa Caucus in a misreported win over Mitt Romney, an economic conservative powerhouse. That dichotomy of candidates should not be appearing so late in the process of selecting a contender for the presidency. Rather, the Republican leadership would be better served by presenting a united front. A mere imitation of that front is what Branstad proposes by suggesting that Republicans should limit themselves to only good words on their fellow conservatives. To truly create a single, focused party, the GOP will have to actually resolve their differences. Although it might be disdained by some members of their party, that resolution comes not only from speaking — a favorite pastime of Cruz — but from listening. Taking in all points of view their party encompasses, and directing them into honed political action is the purpose of political parties. Perhaps some in the GOP have forgotten that, but as their elephant mascot would suggest, it is never too late to remember.

SMALL TALK By Jamie.Wandschneider


n the way to class, countless students have earbuds in and faces turned down, giving off the vibe “Don’t talk to me.” Sitting on the bus, most are preoccupied with their phones or other gadgets and pay minimal attention to their neighbor. While waiting for class to begin, students sit by strangers in complete silence for, at most, 10 minutes. Not once do people put down their technological devices to say “Hello” or “What did you think about that homework assignment?” Even a small smile is rare. With silence becoming a common form of (non)interaction among students, is it possible that the art of small talk is being forgotten due to our addiction to technology and preference for isolation? Small talk, defined, can range from a simple “Hello” to a more complicated “How are you today?” An example of the absence of small talk happens almost every day prior to the start of class. Your seat just so happens to be next to someone whom you have never met. What happens is both people sit in silence, usually on their phones or computers, or maybe just lost in introspective thought, until the class starts. Nothing is said; it is almost like a simple “good morning” is too much to ask for. Small talk is meant to be simple. It is a way to communicate with others and maybe build a con-

nection with them later on. Often young adults joke how their parents have so many friends, or make friends too easily. This might be true, however, a lot of times parents use small talk. It is way to pass the time and who knows what could come out of it. Conversations used to be a way to pass the time while waiting for something. Now, we have our phones and iPods. With games and music at our fingertips, we use that as the preferred form of entertainment. Airports even have iPad bars; a literal bar filled with iPads for travelers to use while waiting to board their flight. Small talk is a skill that needs practice and can also reflect one’s personality. Someone who participates in small talk appears to be friendlier than someone who does not. By practicing small talk among your peers, you will find that small talk will come naturally in a more professional situation. No matter the occupation, communication is key. Many graduates have the skills needed to perform their job correctly, but most often they are unable to communicate face-toface or over the phone. Many young people would much rather carry on a conversation via texting rather than actually speaking over the phone. With younger generations being brought up with social media and texting, the population might forget how to effectively carry on a conversation. Technology is allowing us to connect more with people, whether

it is someone down the hall in your dorm or across the ocean. These devices make it easy and convenient to connect with others. A problem with these devices is that we are becoming much too reliant on them. People tend to be more comfortable emailing someone rather than calling them on the phone. By becoming reliant on communicating with others indirectly, we forget how to carry on a regular conversation which should be be natural. By not being able to effectively communicate face-toface, people may lose their chance to be hired, and employers may give the job to someone else. Many relationships are being established through different types of technology. When communicating through these devices, we are able to pause and think of a reply. It gives us a chance to make sure we say the right thing. When face-toface, we aren’t given that moment to stop and think. We will say the first thing that comes to mind. If we are not used to this style of conversing, we may say something that we may later regret. Technology has allowed us to reach people from all around the world. It is a convenient way to communicate with others on a professional or casual level. But, we have become too reliant on technology to the point where it is overtaking the simplicity of conversing directly. Next time you have a moment before class, start a conversation with your neighbor and help bring back the lost art of small talk.

Rethink cynicism, discover its benefits By Ian.Timberlake


am a cynic. If you were to do a quick search on Wikipedia, you would find that I fit its definition, both classic and contemporary, to a tee. I can’t escape it. I was not once troubled by it; it was easy to embrace — though I’m not sure if it’s because of a confirmation bias or an ironic result of being a cynic. The classical ethics of a cynic according to the academic Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy are as follows: “Cynic conception of ethics is that virtue is a life lived in accord with nature. Nature offers the clearest indication of how to live the good life, which is characterized by reason, self-sufficiency and freedom. Social conventions, however, can hinder the good life by compromising freedom and setting up a code of conduct that is opposed to nature and reason.” The primary social conventions that were rejected by cynics were money, power and fame. Three things that even today are considered strong definitions of masculinity and success in general. Social conventions of money, power and fame, are very closely tied to the idea

of selfishness. Which leads to the more modern idea that cynics believe society is, in general, selfish, controlling and unethical. I’m very quick to ridicule people in positions of power, who often have money and are quite selfserving, as in do whatever it takes to stay in that position of power and authority. These include but are not limited to politicians, big businesses, not-for-profit organizations, union leaders, disrupters of freedom, and those who lack a desire for knowledge and don’t respect intelligence. The prevalence of the above is what gets me labeled, and self-labeled, as a cynic. It’s not that I believe all those in positions of authority are self-serving; it’s that a majority of society is inherently self-serving in an attempt to achieve a false perception of what it takes to be successful — money, power and fame. The more modern understanding of a cynic is quite negative and taken to be a synonym for pessimism. Here’s why: I take people’s motifs to be in conflict with what they say and what they actually do — “people” meaning people as a whole or a society. I think people claim (and very well believe) they are following a proper code of ethics

but in reality are highly selfserving when opportunity arises. Not necessarily to our discredit, though, the loins of humanity are rooted in self-preservation — Just as the loins of any organism are. Self-preservation is important, paramount even, but there’s a difference between being self-preserving and undercutting. Surely the human species is at a point in its existence where it doesn’t need to bring others down in an effort to survive. I’m not going to hurt other’s well-being for my own gain. I’m going to do work on my end to raise myself up. Cynics have a very high expectation of others, and I won’t let you into my life unless you deserve it. If that upsets you, I don’t know why it should. I expect people in society to at least be as good as I am. Why? Because I don’t find it particularly hard to be helpful to people, to get by without undercutting, without needing power, have a desire to be intelligent and driven towards wisdom, and to doubt those in positions of authority, be it business, politics or religion. If you have read my columns, regularly or not, for the last year and half and agreed with a lot them, chances are you have a level of cynicism. All of my writ-

ings have a cynical undertone — point out hypocrisy, ignorance and unethical, unintelligible social “values” that shouldn’t be valued at all. The other side of a cynic is someone who understands that humans aren’t as great as we lead ourselves to believe. Not that we haven’t done great things and continue to do great things, but that in the grand scheme of the universe, we are just a speck on a “mote of dust” floating around one ball of fire, in a vast and “empty” galaxy populated with 300 billion other balls of fire, amid a universe with an approximate half trillion galaxies and all we seem to care about is name-brand clothing, intervening deities, and going to war over ideologies, land and resources. An overwhelming majority of people think cynicism correlates with finding no value in everything or with pessimism, when in fact a cynic is somebody who takes an active stand in pointing out areas of society that provide a false perception of what it means to be good and right, and to break what we believe to be deluding and ruining society. Or as the late comedian George Carlin (a cynic himself) would put it: “Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist.”

Disc Golf preps for Collegiate Championships By Chase.Russell

The Disc Golf Club will be competing for a national title for the fourth-consecutive year. Currently ranked ninth in the nation, the team clinched a bid to the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships after topping the field at the 2013 Heartland Collegiate Disc Golf Championships on Oct. 6 in Ottumwa, Iowa. Iowa State will represent the Upper Midwest Region in the 2014 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships on April 16 to 19 at the Hippodrome Disc Golf Complex in North Augusta, S.C. After finishing 20th out of 60 clubs at last year’s championship, the club has remained undefeated throughout the 2013-14 regular season to crack the top 10. “We have always had a strong team at Iowa

State,” said club president Calvin Song. “We are expecting to place top 20 in the nation. Our main goal is to get top 15 or top 10.” At the collegiate level, disc golf teams consist of four individuals with the top three performances from each team factoring into the final score. In order to claim the top-10 finish his group is aiming for, Song knows his group will be relying on strong performances from each golfer. A native of Ames, Song is a sophomore in pre-business preparing for a double major in marketing and management. While attending Ames High School, Song discovered the Disc Golf Club after competing in the club’s annual tournament. He was able to join the club for the 2013 championship as a freshman, where he finished 91st in a field of nearly 200 competitors. “Individually, we all have different goals,” Song said. “My goal this year is to place in the top 50.” Joey Lane, senior in management information systems, is Iowa State’s only returning All-

American. Lane began playing disc golf while attending EddyvilleBlakesburg High School after a nine-hole course was constructed in his hometown. As a sophomore, Lane joined the team and went on to place 27th in the intermediate flight at the national competition later that year. The following season, Lane finished 6th at the national championship, tying for the best finish in school history. “As far as a team aspect, it’s always just about getting back to nationals; just to qualify,” Lane said. “I would rather see the team do better this year than me do better as an individual.” Jacob Lauber, student in the cross-enrollment program at Iowa State and Des Moines Area Community College, will be returning to nationals for the second time with the club after a 59th place finish last year. Lauber is an amateur member of the Professional Disc Golf Association and has earned 11 top-10 finishes in tournaments throughout the Midwest in 2013. “He plays a lot of tournaments,” Song said.

“He plays more than maybe all of us combined. He is always out there traveling.” For Song, the next step in moving his team forward is landing more corporate sponsorships. The Disc Golf Club recently has benefited from a partnership with Avery Jenkins, one of the top disc golf professionals in the world. “[Jenkins] travels the world, and he is a big advocate for the sport,” Song said. “It’s going to be really cool to have his name on the back of our shirts at nationals.” Upon graduation, Song, Lane and Lauber said they eventually might explore the world of professional disc golf. The life of a professional disc golfer consists of frequent travel and low tournament payouts. For the disc golfers at Iowa State, they all agreed that it’s something they do because they enjoy the sport. “It’s all about the fun for me,” Lane said.

Freshman Thomas readies for play at Hilton By Dean.Berhow-Goll For freshman shooting guard Matt Thomas, he’s seen Hilton Coliseum plenty of times in his life. He’s been on multiple recruiting visits and has seen at least double digit games, coming even before ISU coach Fred Hoiberg and his staff started recruiting him. For the first time on Sunday against Augustana, though, Thomas will hit Hilton’s hardwood floor instead of a seat in the front of the student section. “I can’t wait,” Thomas said. “I’ve watched quite a bit of games there, so I’m excited to finally get a chance to step on the court and play in front of the great fans.” In the weeks leading up to the team’s first exhibition game Thomas has had to get acclimated to the different aspects of the college game: the pace, the physicality, even the players themselves. The recruit that was lauded for his shooting ability has made the most significant strides on the opposite side from where Cyclone fans will expect to see his picture-perfect shooting form — the defensive end. His coach has been pleased with what he’s seen in his top-ranked recruit along with fellow consensus top-100 recruit Monte Morris defensively. “[Matt is] a kid that can create space to get open and obviously he moves well without the ball, guys are hunting him on screens trying to get him open,” Hoiberg

Former ISU guard Chris Babb signs in D-League Former ISU guard Chris Babb signed with the Boston Celtics’ D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, after a longer than expected stint at the Celtics’ training camp. The Arlington, Texas native was waived after surviving the initial cut of three players from Boston’s training camp, leaving him as the only invitee left on the official roster at that point. “Kind of the deal from the beginning was go there, enjoy training camp, automatically go to the D-League and then it got to the point Boston was kind of like we like this kid,” Babb said. “We really want to see what’s up. “It was definitely a good experience to be around those guys and to really get a real shot. I think I turned a lot of heads. They liked me a lot more when I left than when I got there.”

nity came. When it did, Babb made the most of it, sinking four of his five 3-pointers during his time in the game. “A day or two before that coach Stevens approached me and told me to keep my head up,” Babb said. “It’d been two games and he hadn’t put me in and he told me to just keep my head up and stay positive and keep being a great teammates. He told me it would pay off. Then the next game he put me in and I played pretty well.” Babb said he’s got a little break now, and decided to come back to Ames and back to the Sukup Basketball Complex to check in on his alma mater and see how the team was doing. He got a chance to watch them practice, too.

Babb didn’t make an appearance in his first two games for the Celtics, but said coach Brad Stevens told him to keep his head up for when the opportu-

“They’re not looking too bad,” Babb said. “They’ve got a pretty good core group of guys. I think they’ve got a solid six-seven guys who are going to be consistent and play well and hopefully some of the younger guys can step up.”

said. “He’s improving on the defensive end and that’s where he’s [grown] the most in my opinion from the first practice to where we are today. “I’ve been very impressed as far as what he and Monte as far as what they’re picking up on the defensive end and then applying it out on the court.” Even though it’s an exhibition game Sunday, it’s still a debut for a number of Cyclone players, including Morris, who said he’ll treat it like any other game. “I know it’s an exhibition game, but

[for] me personally, it’s my first debut in Ames and on the college level so I’m going to treat it like a regular game,” Morris said. “I’m going to go out and try to have fun early and play my game.” Hoiberg is used to having freshmen play significant roles in his lineups, from Melvin Ejim in Hoiberg’s first year to Georges Niang starting for most of the season last year. Thomas and Morris are expected to continue that trend this season. “Obviously Georges had a huge role for

us last year, you know starting with Melvin in his freshman year and starting from day one and I think that’s what you’ll see with Matt and Monte,” Hoiberg said. “They’ll both have big roles for us early on in the season and it’ll be very important for those guys to get out and establish themselves as rotation players for the entire season.”

ISU preps to bounce back after split games By Alex.Gookin Stat sheets alone tell the last two ISU soccer games have been unordinary, to say the least. The 1-1 record of the Cyclones during that time may come as no surprise, but the way it happened was much more improbable. Against Baylor, Iowa State was forced to defend 21 shots and 12 corner kicks and only managed seven shots of their own. The Cyclones won 1-0 on a breakaway overtime goal. Against Texas Christian, the Cyclones got a taste of their own medicine. Iowa State fired 22 shots, three of them bouncing off the crossbar, to TCU’s eight shots. The Horned Frogs won 1-0 on a breakaway second-half goal. “It’s incredibly disappointing, but at the same time it wasn’t devastating,” said ISU coach Wendy Dillinger, regarding the TCU loss. “We played well enough to win and should have won. They caught the break against us, we got the break against Baylor.” Senior defender Jessica Reyes could have caught the fewest breaks against TCU. Reyes led the team in shots, but also lead the team in heartbreaking misses with three of her shots bouncing off the crossbar. “To be that close and not get a result is frustrating,” Reyes said. “It felt good that we were creating opportunities like that, but you just hope that one would go in.” Iowa State has been on the wrong end of breaks a few times this season. Iowa State fell to Minnesota early in the season 1-0 on an own goal and came storming back down 2-1 against Texas Tech only to fall short on

missed shots in the final minutes. However, those two losses came before the Cyclones reached their peak. After a loss to Texas, the Cyclones went 2-1-2, racking up seven points in the Big 12 standings to put them in the top half of the league. Instead of losing on costly mistakes or wrong bounces, the Cyclones were on the receiving end. Goalkeeper Maddie Jobe made critical saves against Kansas to keep them off the scoreboard and finish in a tie, and a win against Oklahoma got the Cyclones in the win column. After the overtime win against Baylor, Dillinger was praised as the toughest of the final three opponents, the Cyclones looked ready to finish the season on a streak. The Horned Frogs hit the Cyclones with a bit of reality. “I think we all recognize that we played really well regardless of what the result was,” Reyes said. “I think there is a positivity about that. I think it came at a good time. I think we will be able to bounce back from that.” If nothing else, the team prepares for what will likely be an emotional game Friday. Iowa State will face Oklahoma State on senior night and the season finale. The Cyclones haven’t beaten the Cowgirls since 2009, the senior class’ freshman year. The night will also be hard for Dillinger, as this was her first recruiting class and has a longer connection with the group than any other so far. “For them to make the decision to come to a rebuilding program when many of them had opportunities to go to established programs is a unique mentality,” Dillinger said. “To make that decision to come here to make a difference is pretty special, so knowing that, I think it will be

difficult.” The seniors are also seeing the season’s end. However, with the improvements made not only this season but throughout their careers, the ISU seniors are hoping to play a few more games before hanging up

their jerseys. “We’re not just going to the Big 12 tournament just to go, we want to make a statement,” Reyes said. “But to see our goal of getting to the Big 12’s finally achieved just feels really good.”

Freshman golfer competes in the Amateur Championship in China By Mike.Randleman While the ISU men’s golf team capped off its season in North Carolina, freshman golfer Nick Voke departed from his teammates to compete on a bigger stage. Voke competed in the AsiaPacific Amateur Championship in Beijing, China on Oct. 24 through 27, where he placed 33rd out of 120 of the top amateurs from the Asia-Pacific region. “It was an awesome experience,” Voke, a native of New Zealand, said. “The country is completely different, but it was great. It’s like being in a different world.” Voke qualified for the tournament by means of his top-six ranking in New Zealand in the

World Amateur Golf Rankings. During his week in Beijing, Voke spent time with fellow New Zealand golfers and was able to enjoy a trip sponsored by The Masters Golf Association and the R&A, who paid for travel and lodging for all competitors. “A free trip to China, you can’t complain about that,” Voke said. After the tournament’s first two rounds, Voke found himself in the thick of title-contention, sitting just five shots off of the lead after posting rounds of 75 and 72, and tied for 12th-place. Scores of 74 and 79 during the weekend eliminated him from contention, but he refused to chalk his slip-up to pressure. “I approached it the same as I would any other tournament,”

Voke said. “Obviously, it was the biggest event I’ve played in, but I don’t think it got to me at all. On the first tee, I wasn’t nervous.” Instead, he attributed his performance to a troublesome short-game. “I’d thought I had hit a good shot and the wind would catch it,” Voke said. “On the 14th hole, I landed on the cart path. On another day, it could’ve just stayed in the rough, and I could have gotten up-and-down for birdie, but I walked away with a bogey. It was just one of those days where nothing goes your way, but that’s golf. You live and you learn.” Though Voke insisted that this was his worst tournament of the year, ISU coach Andrew Tank was impressed with his player’s

33rd-place finish. “It just shows he’s one of the best amateurs in the world,” Tank said. “He’s come over here and had success in the [United States] in college golf and then he was able to travel to China and, in a completely new environment, play well.” While Voke failed to earn an invitation to The Masters with a win, he did gain some airtime. “I was at the function before the tournament started and I met the manager of all the broadcasting [in New Zealand]. I must have said the right things because they showed quite a bit of me,” Voke said jokingly. Voke also met with Golf Channel analyst and fellow New Zealander Frank Nobilo during a practice round.

“He came up to us and told me he’d been watching from a distance and he was quite impressed about the quality of golf I’ve played over here,” Voke said. “So having those two individuals I got along with quite well maybe got me a little bit more TV exposure.” Minimal coverage of the event was aired in the United States, but in New Zealand, much of the tournament was broadcast, with Voke’s rounds comprising some of the coverage. “In the first round there were cameras on me the whole backnine. I was on TV for about an hour,” Voke said. “I haven’t seen it, but my parents said back at home they showed a lot of highlights of myself.”

In Sterio breaks classical mold, recreates genre By Nicole.Presley In Sterio, a flute duo, strives to connect with its audience by playing outside of the classical realm that surrounds the instrument. The flute duo will play in the Music Hall on Friday, Nov. 1. Shivhan Dohse and Erica Peel had originally met at a Masters class during the summer. Dohse invited Peel to play with her at her Masters Recital for two years, and in 2007 the group was created. The classically trained pair writes and creates their own music. The duo cover and combine multiple genres of music while playing to an electronic back track. “I think prior to even meeting each other we both knew we had to do something successful with music and something different,” Peel said. “Something that nobody else was doing, but didn’t exactly know what that was until we met each other. “ “I don’t think when we first started we knew exactly what we were going to do with it. We had no idea we’d be playing electronic back tracks and writing our own music,” Dohse said. “Through out the years everything just keeps evolving and progressing.” In Sterio has published two CDs and is working on publishing sheet music to their originally composed songs. The duo plan to continue publishing the rest of its music throughout the year. “Frequency,” the duo’s first CD, was released in 2010. The second album, “Awake,” was released this year. “Awake” is a CD/DVD combo that takes the owner through a painting while listening to music. Each tune takes the listener through the painting that it was inspired by. When asked which audience it preferred to play to, In Sterio responded that it liked playing in schools the most. “We love playing for schools and playing for kids. Just to instill the notion that you can do anything with your instrument once you actually master your instrument,” Dohse said. “Play your scales, do everything, go through the lesson books, you can do anything and inspiring that at such a young age. Especially now when a lot of music programs are being cut, the kids aren’t having as much opportunities.” “Kids are so uninhibited and so honest that I feel like with adult audiences sometimes they’re so proper that they feel like they can’t move or do anything,” Peel said. “With our music we feed off of the energy from the audience and whether they’re digging it or not. With the kids, they’re dancing around and they don’t care.” Aside from In Sterio, Peel also plays in the Lincoln Symphony and in the Omaha Symphony on piccolo. Dohse teaches 19 students at Clark University, plays in the Ottumwa Symphony and occasionally subs in different orchestras.

Free drag show at DG’s Tap House to fill Halloween entertainment gap By Cole.Komma In addition to the ghosts and goblins of Halloween, the drag queens at DG’s Tap House will be giving out much more than tricks and treats. DG’s Tap House Drag Show will begin at 9 p.m. and will feature drag kings, queens, burlesque dancers and bands for free. DG’s monthly drag show was created earlier this year in February. Nate Logsdon, manager at DG’s Tap House, said it was created to fill a gap in the entertainment of the Ames community. “There wasn’t another regular

drag show in Ames, and we realized that this community was being underserved, “ Logsdon said. “Drag shows are amazing entertainment and there is a great crowd for these kind of shows in Ames.” Logsdon himself has been seen in drag on multiple occasions and has even bartended in drag. The idea of drag and its performance has always fascinated Logsdon. “I’ve always loved drag. I’m very attracted to performers who blend gender lines or are in some way ‘queer,’” Logsdon said. “When I first started incorporating drag into my own performances, I felt a tremendous jolt of energy and

self-confidence.” The addition of DG’s Drag Show correlates with the growing acceptance of drag in popular culture. Adrien Daller, singer of local band, Trouble Lights, is pleased to see the drag culture being more accepted. “The scene I’m the most inspired by artistically are the drag queens and the drag scene,” Daller said. “Iowa actually has a really impressive drag scene. There are a lot of awesome gay bars in Des Moines that do regular drag shows. ... I really like things that are confusing sexually, in terms of an artistic thing to explore. I like coming across as androgynous; I like to mix it up.”

Dayshell debut album features ‘fresh metal,’ irresistible beats in smooth blend of sound

The hairy feminist, father and the first comedian deemed Funniest Person on Twitter, Rob Delaney, will be making an appearance at the ISU AfterDark event Friday, Nov 1. The comedian will be performing his stand-up comedy at 11 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union The vice columnist, comedian and avid tweeter has gained popularity in not only the comedy industry but the entertainment industry as well for almost a decade now. With small roles in comedy films like “Wild Gone Girls” in 2007 and starring roles like his part in “Coma Period” in 2009. Since then, Delaney has been making his way heavily into stand-up comedy and, most recently, becoming an author. “I don’t have a formula for funny. It’s just whatever makes me laugh and how I feel,” Delaney said. Adding to his list of accomplishments is his newly published autobiography releasing this month titled “Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage.” The book is a memoir going into detail about Delaney’s battle with depression and suicide, his sobriety, and two life-changing events that molded him into the man he is today, filtered through comedy. “Mostly everything I do I try to do in a funny way; I can’t help but try to be funny,” Delaney said. Delaney’s book is now available for pre-order and will be released on Nov. 5.

Shayley Bourget, former bassist, rhythm guitarist and clean vocalist of metal core band Of Mice and Men, is officially back on his feet. In February 2012, Bourget announced his permanent departure from Of Mice and Men due to an array of personal issues including severe depression and alcoholism. A relatively short time after his departure, he, along with drummer Raul Martinez and bassist Jordan Wooley, started a new project by the name of Dayshell. Less than two years after Bourget discontinued working with Of Mice and Men, Dayshell released its self-titled debut album. As opposed to Of Mice and Men’s metal core style, Dayshell is considered by the band to be “fresh metal.”

You do not have to be a metal core fan to love this album. The vocals are the centerpiece of every song — a brilliant decision, in my opinion. Seeing as how Bourget was a clean vocalist for Of Mice and Men, it is to be expected that the dirty vocals are kept to a minimum. However, they are in there, and they are very well-placed. The song “I Owe You Nothing” is by far the best example of Bourget’s ability to deliver gut-wrenching dirty vocals. The song is heavy-hitting almost from beginning to end with sporadic outbursts of raw emotion. The most addictive song on the album is the lead single, “Share With Me.” The melody in the chorus is just beautiful. The lyrics in the chorus are also simple and easy to remember, which will make you want to sing your heart out. If you actually delve into the lyr-

ics, however, they are Bourget’s outlet for some of the things that were destroying him. Another must-listen is “Hail to the Queen.” This song exemplifies everything this album is really about. The vocals are at the forefront with all of the instruments blending in smoothly behind. The beat is irresistible and will have you tapping your toes in no time. The song gets more emotionally involved as it progresses, which is exactly how this type of song should be done. Dayshell is going to become something big, and Shayley Bourget will not be regretting his major decision to leave Of Mice and Men in order to figure out the direction he wants to go with his life.
