By Matthew.Nosco A new resource is now available to students without vehicles in Ames. WeCar, a car sharing program and branch of Enterprise Rent-ACar company, is now operating on Iowa State’s campus. The company has a unique business model: renting cars to members for short increments of time in a completely automated process. ISU students can sign up for the service on the company’s website, “The application fee of $20 is being waived for current students, and the first year’s membership fee of $35 is debited back to the customer’s account towards their first rentals,” said Breanne Bolin, business rental sales executive with WeCar. “We offer two different rental periods,” Bolin said. “Our rate is $8 per hour to rent the car, and we offer a ‘date-night’ deal for $35 from 6 p.m. until 8 a.m. the following morning. All of our rates include





Rent-a-Car company that will serve the ISU community. Who: The service is available to students, faculty and staff. Price: The annual membership is $35. If you join before Nov. 22, the fee will be returned to you in WeCar credit. Rates: $8 per hour on weekdays, $8.50 per hour on weekends, $35 for overnight (6 p.m. to 8 a.m.) and $56 for 24 hours. *Rates are for the first 200 miles. 20 cents for every additional mile.

the price of fuel and insurance for the vehicle.” WeCar currently has two vehicles on Iowa State’s campus, one located in the Eaton Hall parking lot and the other by Linden Hall. Once a customer has been authorized for membership, they obtain an electronic key that provides them with access to a vehicle after reserving it through the company’s website. Ismael Pinto, junior in psychology, said that he can see the value in such a service as a student who hasn’t had a vehicle in Ames since he moved here.

The subject of this story, Sarani Rangarajan, a graduate student in journalism, is a member of the Iowa State Daily Publication Board, acting as the board’s secretary.

Challenges arise in global differences By Cristobal.Matibag Sarani Rangarajan loves living in the United States. She would love to work here, too. But before she can do that, she has to find someone to hire her. In hopes of finding that person, Rangarajan, graduate in journalism, set out for the ISU Career Fair, which was held in Hilton Coliseum on Wednesday. As an Indian national who has studied been in America since 2008, she’s had time to observe the competitiveness of its job market. She’s also noticed the myriad workplace conventions Americans have to follow — conventions that, in some cases, have no Indian counterpart. Some of them still baffle her. Approaching Hilton by bus, Rangarajan compared Indian and American

styles of communication. “We talk in a completely different way,” she said. “In India, if someone says ‘I think you should do x,‘ it means, ‘Maybe you should do it.’ In the U.S., it just means ‘Do it.’” Ascending the Hilton stairs, Rangarajan said she hadn’t mastered all the workplace behaviors successful Americans display and respond to. She hoped she would find an internship at the fair that would teach them to her. “International students have to make an extra effort to understand social cues,” she said as she passed through the doors. “I couldn’t take a job without interning first.” In the lobby, Rangarajan presented her student ID at a registration table. After being supplied with a name tag, she started toward the floor of the arena. While walking, she said she wanted to cover science for a major U.S. newspaper, but understood how scarce jobs of that sort were. All too consciousness of their scarcity, she had decided not to hope for too much. At most, she expected to learn about public-relations jobs with a selection of her “must-hit” firms: Boston Scientific, CDS Global and Honeywell.


Tainted cantaloupe causes fear of outbreak By Amelia.Johnson

“In India, you’d mob them,” she said with a smile. After a pause, she clarified that Indian students would probably be more self-conscious about taking up a professional’s time with individual questions, and would thus be more likely to speak to him or her in groups.

A rough skinned melon does not seem to be a likely suspect in causing illness, but cantaloupe is the current host for one of the most deadly food borne illnesses, caused by bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes. “It’s the first time ever, in the U.S. that there has been an outbreak of listeriosis from cantaloupe,” said Aubrey Mendonca, an associate professor of food science. While the media has been covering the cantaloupe-listeria outbreak, it is important to remember that listeria can be found in everything, not just cantaloupe. “Cantaloupe is not hiding in the dark, waiting for you,” said James Dickson, professor of animal science. Foods such as deli meat, coleslaw, unpasteurized milk and many other foods can contain it, but it is only dangerous when there is a large amount of the bacteria present. “Listeria is an environmental organism, and it is found literally everywhere. We could probably vacuum this carpet and find it,” Dickson said. Mendonca said furthered, “It’s widespread in nature. It lives in the soil, and decaying vegetation. And it could be carried in the intestines of animals.” Although listeria can be found

Celebrity News Notes and events.

‘Arrested Development’ movie, TV episodes in the works We’ve been eagerly awaiting the “Arrested Development” movie that star Jason Bateman has promised is in the works, but it looks like we’ll get new TV episodes as well. Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, who executive produced the cult classic from 2003 to 2006, announced at the “Arrested Development” cast reunion on Sunday that they’re trying to bring the program back to TV. The idea is that it would set the stage for the feature film, Hurwitz explained to the audience gathered at the event. “We don’t completely own the property, there are business people involved and studios and that kind of thing. Just creatively, I have been working on the screenplay for a long time and found that as time went by, there was so much more to the story,” Hurwitz said, according to the New York Times. “In fact, where everyone’s been for five years became a big part of the story. So in working on the screenplay, I found even if I just gave five minutes per character to that back story, we were halfway through the movie before the characters got together.” Which is why they’re planning a “limited-run series” leading up to the film. “We’re basically hoping to do nine or 10 episodes, with almost one character per episode,” Hurwitz said. He stayed mum on details about a studio that would air the series or that would back the film, noting that this sort of setup would require “studios to work together that don’t typically work together, film and TV.”

>>CULTURE.p1 Watching the representative leaf through a brochure with a student, she seemed to grow nervous. “I just think I’ll have much better luck online,” she said. Minutes later, when she reached the Mayo booth, the woman at it said she wasn’t aware of internship openings for communications specialists, and directed her to the clinic’s website. “I just don’t like hearing ‘no,’” she said as she left the booth behind. Moving to the booth for Boston Scientific, Rangarajan introduced herself to the staff behind it and posed the same question she’d asked the Mayo rep moments ago. She walked away a couple minutes later, smiling sardonically. “I heard what I expected to hear,” she said. “Not a ‘no,’ but close.” After a visit to CDS Global,

>>HEALTH.p1 everywhere in nature, people should not worry over it. There must be a large amount of listeria bacteria within the food to cause infection. “Normally it’s not a problem, unless it gets into a certain environment,” Dickson said. “The people who get sick from listeria are, first off, those who have some type of compromised immune system, which, in our society, tends to be the elderly, the people on chemotherapy for cancer, [and] people that have some long-term chronic illness. Normal, healthy people don’t get listeria,” Dickson said. “Even pregnant women are at risk,” Mendonca said. “What nature does [is] it suppresses the women’s immune system a little bit to prevent rejection of the fetus. So listeria mostly affects pregnant women, the very young, the elderly and other immune-suppressed persons.

a data-management company with corporate offices in Des Moines, Rangarajan tried to put herself in the place of American managers considering international employees. “They’re concerned about extra work,” she said, mentioning that companies often had to engage high-priced lawyers to cut through immigration-law red tape. “And there’s this rush to buy American” she added, giving her impression of trends in the U.S. job market. She interrupted her commentary mid-thought to question the appropriateness of the brown pantsuit she’d chosen to wear. Everyone else, she said, seemed to have chosen darker colors. “It’s a bit odd being a brown suit in the midst of all these blacks,” she said. En route to the Honeywell booth, she moved to other topics, marveling at the ambiguity

of the signals she’d gotten. “Some of these people say things and I don’t know if it’s positive or negative,” she said. Honeywell’s was one of the last booths she’d planned to visit. But when she got close to it, two signs at its site discouraged her. Returning from the booth, she said there had been two notices posted that read “Citizens Only.” (According to an ISU Career Services web brief about Honeywell, applicants must have a U.S. citizen’s or permanent resident’s work authorization to be eligible for jobs.) Rangarajan left the Career Fair with little more hope than she brought to it. Nonetheless, she was encouraged by her encounter with CDS staff. Not only did the company have an office close to Ames, it also seemed receptive to taking on students like her. “CDS I will definitely apply to,” she said, paging through

“[But] healthy people have probably been ingesting this all their lives and not realized it,” Mendonca said. But for those who are infected, it can be deadly. “It’s hard to diagnose,” Mendonca said, who said listeriosis mimics the symptoms of the flu. “You really feel like you’re getting a flu.” Another reason it’s so deadly is because of the bacteria itself. “In the patients that are susceptible, listeria has the ability to avoid the immune system,” Dickson said. “Somehow listeria learned how to live in white cells,” Mendonca said. By hiding in the white blood cells, anti-bodies can’t latch on to it to draw the attention of the white blood cells, which would eat it. “It’s always a fight or a race between the organism and our immune system,” Mendonca said. The listeria bacterium, according to Mendonca, can be considered unique. “Listeria monocytogenes is one of few

human-enteric pathogens that can grow at refrigeration temperatures.” Not only can it survive in a refrigeration setting, listeria grows well at human temperatures — about 37 degrees Celsius. “It’s really unusual to have an organism that can grow across such an extreme spread in temperature, from the refrigerator to the human body,” Dickson said. A listeria bacterium can multiply fairly quickly within food products, such as fruits. “Listeria can come up before the mold grows,” Mendonca said. The bacterium that gets on the cantaloupes’s skin can be much harder to wash off because of the rough surface. “The inside of a cantaloupe should be free [of listeria], unless the skin is damaged,” Mendonca said. If an infected melon is cut, the bacteria can spread to the inside. If left alone for a while, the bacteria will multiply to a level where it could cause infection.

a PR booklet she’d taken. She noticed the word “globally” in a section on employee recruitment and gave a small laugh of relief. “There are these little keywords they use,” she said. “If they mention them it’s good news for me.” In an interview early Wednesday, Dilok Phanchantraurai, a program coordinator for the International Students and Scholar’s Office, said it was common for job-seeking international students to have doubts like the ones Rangarajan expressed. “The main challenge that our students have is finding an employer who’s willing to keep the student, or sponsor the student to stay here longer on work visa,” Phanchantraurai said. He added that he’d noticed fewer international students looking for jobs in the U.S. and greater numbers of them looking for jobs in their home

country. “In the past — let’s say about four or five years ago — almost every single one would say ‘I want to get some kind of work experience in the U.S.’ That is not the case anymore,” he said. “I think the trend is, because of the downturn in the job market in the U.S., fewer

employers are willing to hire international students.” Rangarajan hopes to defy the trend Phanchantraurai identifies. She knows that, eventually, her ability to do so will determine whether or not she has to leave the U.S. “You can’t stay without a job,” she said.

Candidate presents us his Contract The final point of Newt Gingrich’s new Contract with America consists of developing a system for more citizen involvement in politics. That citizen involvement is supposed to “lead to change and sustainability in the next 10 years.” Citizen involvement is precisely the problem with American politics today. Our Constitution has progressively made us Americans the most politically involved people in the world. Travellers to the early United States often noted that politics seems to be a national hobby, almost a sport. While we prize our right to vote in elections without having to pass property, racial, gender, age or literacy restrictions, our right to vote is exactly that: Our right to vote is only the right to vote. And while representatives are supposed to listen to their constituents, that does not mean they should vote on the issues in the way a majority of their constituents would prefer. Their job is to condense and balance the competing opinions in the constituency and make an informed judgment respecting the impacts of bills on the people they’re responsible for. Town hall meetings have always been a staple of American political culture. Elected officials have always sought to connect with their constituents over congressional recesses and weekends. Gingrich unveiled his new Contract with America here, in a town hall-style meeting. Some of the best, most memorable heckling of politicians occurs at town hall meetings. Politicians’ greatest gaffes and slip-ups occur then. The town hall format also allows politicians to shine; their free-wheeling nature means that politicians will be exposed to unpredictable questions and situations. But at some point we have to let them do their job. Employees have to be trusted. When was the last time you tried to work with your boss looking over your shoulder, critiquing your every move? How many of you enjoy driving with a backseat driver? The prospect of reelection means that on some level, at some time, politicians need to pay attention to public opinion back home and consider their constituents’ views. While conscientious elected officials will give public opinion its place in their calculations, they will not just vote whichever way it directs. An excess of participation will not fix American politics or congressional deadlock. Politicians aren’t elected to give their voters whatever they want; they’re elected because they are, at least theoretically, the most competent judges of situations. Making politicians into fairy godmothers won’t change anything. Editorial Board

Pursue all knowledge in life Reaction to Gingrich raises questions on US education


riday I joined many other students, faculty, media and individuals from Ames in listening to 2012 Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich. His name alone drew in people passing by. Parents, here for Family Weekend and tours with their children, stopped and sat down. Not many people get the chance to hear the former Speaker of the House, a man who has been involved in politics for so long. He talked about his new “Contract with America,” which addresses points that he wants Americans and his own campaign to focus on, to bring to light and conquer common problems in our country. That contract is a mine of information; be sure to go to www.newt. org to check it out. I thought he brought up valid points, but what I have not been able to get out of my mind was when a man in the audience asked a question in terms of education. The man brought up how in our schools today students are lacking critical thinking skills, as well as in areas of knowledge vital in the real world in terms of how to set up a bank account, pay bills on time, balance a checkbook, set up an interview, build a resume, etc. Newt faced the audience and looked at the students, and asked a series of questions. “How many of you were bored in high school?” “How many of you just took what your teacher taught you for fact. Then when you asked questions in order to understand more, the subject was changed.” “How many of you could have graduated in 3 years?” The questions continued, and more and more students were raising their hands.

Photo courtesy of Thinkstock Students must push themselves to ask questions to get the most out of their education. Real-world survival skills often get lost in the learning process, and students need to know what to expect.

By Caytlin.Hentzel I was bored in high school, I was ready to move on my sophomore year, I took more and more upper level classes as a sophomore than the guidance counselor wanted, and yet I had to bring a novel to class so I could try to stay engaged. I am not saying this is anything against my fellow classmates, it was more of me being tired of filling in bubbles or the blanks

that went along with textbook readings over the French Revolution. I learned just so I could pass the exam and then move on to the next subject in history or science. What is scary is that many students in our generation do not know how to think beyond memorizing a phrase for a test or a bold faced definition or formula. Nor do we understand how to survive in the real world. Granted a vast majority do, but sometimes it takes a while to learn. People do not know how to build a resume, act in an interview or be financially stable. Educating students in what it takes to survive in the real world would give students both the skills and confidence

to approach situations like interviews and not walk out wondering what went wrong. It would give them time to focus on school, and not be concerned with suddenly not having money to pay for gas. Being stable financially and knowing how to conduct a positive job interview can help lift the burden of wondering what is expected of you. Those skills should be integrated into the school system in business classes so students can know what to expect outside of their familiar town. We need to become a country that does not learn to pass the next exam of True or False questions, or of multiple choice where the answers always seem to be C. We need to become a country that pursues knowledge with a hunger so that our minds are not so focused on facts that our fourth grade teacher taught us. Some go to college just to earn a paycheck, and we all worry about money in the future, but others go with the mind set of reaching out and helping others. Learning to give back sometimes consists of becoming a professor or a doctor who helps give aid to third-world countries. What we apply now, changes the world around us everyday, and that will always be bigger than a bubble on a bubble sheet. Ask questions. How do we know that the earth revolves around the sun? Why was there a massacre in Tiananmen Square? Ask, so that you can get an answer that doesn’t start with “What does that have to do with the Boston Tea Party?” Ask so that you can finally pursue knowledge so that you can look at the world around you in a new appreciation, or even apply it, not just on paper with a pencil.

Protecting Planned Parenthood Pro-lifers prevent proper safety of women in need of organization’s services


ro-choice, pro-life, abortion, Planned Parenthood — all of these words are incorporated in the political lexicon of most Americans. As election time rolls around, fervent religious followers, women’s right activists and advocates of the poor engage candidates with their stances on Planned Parenthood and abortion. We should engage in this conversation in a way that addresses the entire scope of abortion and Planned Parenthood. We must discuss the needed services it provides to the public and the harm banning abortion would do to women everywhere. So many want to accuse people who are pro-choice of being “baby-killers.” Pro-life people should actually be calling themselves “anti-choice.” Most of them probably aren’t educated of the pre-Roe v. Wade realities of abortion or birth control; they simply resort to publicity stunts hinging upon the power of guilt. Scare tactics seem to work well for the pro-life bandwagon. During my undergraduate career at the University of Tennessee, pro-lifers frequented the campus with giant posters of aborted fetuses painted across them, displaying the by-product of abortions. Each poster had pieces of baby fetuses lying across the face of dimes, pennies and nickels. What disturbed me the most about the pictures was the thought of the pro-life photographer who was manipulating theses tiny fetuses, contorting them across the coin faces. What was going through his/her mind as he/she was doing that? Disgusting and uncouth as these photos may have been, they were successful in starting a dialogue. These tactics, however, are by no means new to the controversy of abortion. In 1964, before the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion, Gerri Santoro was the face of the pro-choice movement. Gerri Santoro bled to death lying naked in the floor of a hotel after a self-induced abortion. At that time abortion was not legal so her boyfriend, Clyde Dixon, sought the help of a doctor whom he and Gerri worked with. As you can imagine, the intricacies of this type of procedure should never be attempted by an untrained person. Gerri and Clyde checked into a Connecticut hotel under false names, carrying only surgical tools, and a textbook in hopes of successfully performing the abortion. Withou medical knowledge or training, Gerri was mortally wounded in the process and Clyde fled the

By Elliott.DeVore hotel — leaving Gerri to die alone on the carpet. Some time later the police found Gerri’s body with her chest hunched over her knees, face down on the carpet with a bloody towel between her legs. The picture that was taken by the police was published in an April 1973 issue of Ms. Magazine and has become an iconic image of the pro-choice movement for access to legal and safe abortions. Throughout the 1970s and ‘80s, this photo was found on the protest signs of women’s rights activists nation wide. Though powerful then, our generation has seen very little of this from the pro-choice movement. In an era where women have safe and legal access to abortion, the idea of the undercover abortion seems archaic. The tragedy of Gerri Santoro and many other women lacks the saliency it once held. As foreign as it may seem, so many women have died over the years from self-induced abortions. In the decades leading up to Roe v. Wade, women had to rely on wives’ tales and hearsay to find solutions for unwanted pregnancies. If the United States were to defund Planned Parenthood or ban abortions, there would most certainly be an unfortunate resurgence of killed and maimed women from botched abortions. Though abortions represent only 3 percent of the services obtained through Planned Parenthood, a specific population makes up a big portion of that usage. Women from low socio-economic status and women of color would be most dramatically impacted by the loss of Planned Parenthood’s services, as they cannot afford the procedures or the birth control any other way. You may has have seen the insulting pro-life campaigns claiming that abortion and Planned Parenthood are “black genocide” as they cite black women have the highest percentages of abortions at Planned Parenthood. Being black is not the causing factor; it is the fact that they have a low SES that leads them to obtain abortions through Planned Parenthood. These statistics that the pro-life organizations are reporting are solely from Planned Parenthood and don’t incorporate statistics from other private health care providers. Because Planned Parenthood offers their services with fees that operate on a slid-

ing scale fee basis, it’s no wonder why more low SES women of color use their services. Conservatives want to talk about the “class warfare” being waged against them in taxation, but it seems that their agenda of defunding Planned Parenthood and banning abortion is “class warfare” itself. Planned Parenthood actually prevents more abortions than it provides by giving women affordable birth control. Those services are, however, only a small portion of what they offer. Planned Parenthood provides nearly 4 million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Those services benefit everyone. So if we defund Planned Parenthood, the majority of SES women who use Planned Parenthood to obtain birth control would loose it, and perhaps get pregnant. Then if we ban abortion they will have more children, all while living in poverty. But wait... if they live in poverty and have no access to birth control or abortion then they will only add more people who receive government benefits. There could also be an increase in the spread of STIs. I smell irony, don’t you? This social conservatism would prevent abortions, of which conservatives approve, but then increase government spending on socialized programs that conservatives disapprove of. One in five women will have visiting Planned Parenthood during their lifetime and 83 percent of them will use their services before pregnancy is even an issue. It appears that Planned Parenthood serves a vast percentages of Americans and cutting its funds would be disastrous. The pro-life rhetoric from the right presents itself with quite the conundrum, does it not? Think holistically about Planned Parenthood and abortion, and how drastically banning them would impact women across the United States. There is so much more to consider. These issues are so much deeper than what most would think. We must look at the systemic issues that are intertwined. Think past the fetus and consider the systemic issues of children living in poverty, think of the women who died unnecessary, bloody and painful deaths. Pro-choice is not an immoral stance, it is a stance, which holistically considers multiple layers of moral decisions and the impact they have on others. People will find a way to have abortions whether or not you ban them, but that does not mean they will be safe. Please keep these things in mind in your future conversations.

Opposing QB may prove difficult for ISU defense After preparing for three quarterbacks against Connecticut and two against Texas, ISU defensive coordinator Wally Burnham only has to worry about one starting quarterback when Iowa State plays Baylor on Saturday. Unfortunately for Burnham and the defensive staff, that quarterback has shown this season that he’s of the toughest in the nation to prepare for. 6’2 220 lb. senior Robert Griffin III leads the nation in passer rating (230.3), completion percentage (82.3 percent) and passing touchdowns (18) while throwing only one interception. “He’s a great, great athlete standing back there and the thing that he’s got he’s got great touch,” Burnham said during a teleconference on Monday. “He knows where he wants to go with the ball and he does a good job of getting it there. He can take something off the ball, he can drill it in there, he’s got all the throws I think.” For more on Baylor and Griffin, check Dan Tracy, Daily Staff Writer


Big 12 votes to distribute TV revenue between all teams equally Nine days after the Southeastern Conference announced that current Big 12 school Texas A&M will be joining the SEC next July, the Big 12 board of directors took another step in insuring the long-term stability of the conference. The Big 12 Conference Board of Directors voted unanimously on Sunday to adopt the position to equally distribute all conference related distributable revenue to Tier I and II football television, men’s basketball television and NCAA men’s basketball tournament revenues. Tier I revenue includes appearances on nationally televised networks such as CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox while Tier II includes all cable football, ESPN basketball and Big 12 network games produced by ESPN Regional. The decision to equally distribute TV revenues among the conference schools will now be up to each individual school, which must commit a grant of rights to the conference for at least six years. “Each institution has its own protocol and policies so each institution has to go through some institutional procedure to get this grant of rights approved,” said interim Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas on a Big 12 teleconference on Monday.

Photo: Rebekka Brown/Iowa State Daily Kris Spoth, recent graduate in math and environmental science and continuing his education in electrical engineering, will be leaving Wednesday morning for the 2011 Ironman World Championship held Saturday, Oct. 8 in Kona, Hawaii.

Ironman next for Spoth By Alex.Halsted From the time he was in middle school, ISU senior Kris Spoth knew he wanted to compete in a triathlon. Now, after completing six of them, he is headed to the Ford Ironman World Championship. In 2008, Spoth competed in his first competition — the HyVee Triathlon — in Des Moines. Spoth later went on to compete in the Omaha Triathlon and three National Collegiate triathlons before entering his sixth one this past summer in Louisville. One of Spoth’s friends and a fellow triathlon competitor described a triathlon — which combines swimming, biking and running — as the ultimate combination. “Triathlon is just an accomplishment because if you swim in a pool you can be a swimmer, if you ride a bike you can be a biker and if you run you can be a runner,” said Chris Mann, senior in dietetics and former ISU Triathlon Club president. “But if you want to do them all, you can do a triathlon.” Spoth had done a handful triathlons before he competed in Ironman Louisville on Aug. 28, but Ironman competitions are even more demanding. A typical Ironman competition Requires competitors to complete a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a full 26.2-mile marathon. The preparation for this ultimate test took weeks for Spoth.

“A typical train week for me would be somewhere between 14 and 20 hours a week,” Spoth said. “That can be somewhere around 150 to 200-plus miles on the bike, 40 to 50 miles running and about 10,000 to 12,000 yards swimming.” Nearly 2,400 people entered the Ironman Louisville competition and while Spoth hoped to break the 10hour mark, he entered with just one simple goal: to finish. “The goal was to finish, and if nothing else, I could have been happy with finishing,” Spoth said. “But that wouldn’t have really satisfied me; I was reaching for something much higher.” Throughout that Sunday in Louisville, the excitement continued to grow as Spoth went from the water to his bike and finally to his feet with his parents looking on. “As the race went on, there was this cascading excitement because we were realizing how well he was doing and intermittently we could see him on the course,” said Dick Spoth, Kris’ father. “That progressed through the day and through the marathon where we had the opportunity to be where he was on several occasions.” And then came the finish. As Spoth crossed the finish line, he was filled with excitement. He had fulfilled his one primary goal of finishing. It wouldn’t be until later that Spoth would find out just how well he had done. That moment, when Spoth saw

the results, was filled with many emotions. “I was pretty much in disbelief; I could not believe that I had done that well,” Spoth said. “I completely surpassed all of my goals and it was admittedly an emotional moment.” For his parents, it was equally emotional. “The finish was incredible and it was sort of mentally emotional for all of us,” Dick said. “We were incredibly proud and immensely happy to see how well he had done.” The time on the results sheet read: 9 hours, 26 minutes and 46 seconds. Spoth finished second in his age group and 11th overall, beating out several professionals along the way to qualify for the Ford Ironman World Championship this Saturday in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Each year, some 80,000 people attempt to qualify for the ultimate race in Hawaii, and when Spoth enters the water to kickoff the race on Saturday, he will be one of just 1,800 who were able to make the cut. While Spoth has some goals in mind, he just hopes to enjoy the moment. “I think I’ve had to take a step back and kind of approach this race differently,” Spoth said. “There is so much hype around this race — it’s one of the biggest races in the triathlon community — and to make it here so early and so young with so little experience, I just want to make sure that I appreciate what this means.”


Coach knows ISU has depth By Jeremiah.Davis Through four games of the 201112 football season, the ISU football team is seeing the injuries start to add up. Just against No. 11 Texas on Saturday, the Cyclones saw left tackle Kelechi Osemele go out late in the game when he reaggrivated a right ankle sprain, right tackle Brayden Burris to a broken leg, and cornerback Leonard Johnson leave the game on a stretcher. But if you ask coach Paul Rhoads, he believes his team is not in danger or suffering by any means in terms of injuries. “We’ve played four games, we’ve had an open date, we’ve had training camp. I don’t know how we stack up against others, but we might be in decent shape when you compare us,” Rhoads said. “Injuries are part of the game. The better your program is, the more depth that you have, the better you’re able to overcome [those injuries.]” The depth that Rhoads talked about is evident in the offensive line — something Rhoads admitted did not exist in years past — where almost all the offensive linemen have missed time this season due to injuries. Rhoads said having guys they can rotate in and out and still see success has been key to the Cyclones’ 3-1 start. “The good thing is, with [having injuries early] we got some depth established,” Rhoads said. “We’re glad we’ve got the depth this year that we have not had in the past.” The third-year coach said that as of now, even though multiple players went out of the game Saturday with


Referees not reason for big loss The ISU football team’s 37-14 loss to Texas on Saturday night didn’t give ISU fans a lot to be optimistic about after three comeback wins to start the season. In front of a crowd of 56,390 — the second-most in ISU history — at Jack Trice Stadium, Iowa State committed three costly turnovers in the first quarter alone and accumulated eight penalties for a total of 90 yards. Some bad sentiment was geared toward the officiating of the game, which caused an uproar of boos from the crowd, half of which fled their seats by halftime when the Longhorns had taken a 34-0 lead. The football team didn’t receive much scrutiny after the loss from ISU fans, but the officiating quickly became the subject of fault for the Cyclones’ loss. Blaming the referees would not only by unwarranted, but inaccurate. Coming into the game, the Cyclones had a turnover margin of -5, meaning for every five turnovers they successfully forced, they turned the ball over 10 times. That figure worsened to -8 after three first-quarter turnovers, all of which resulted in Texas’ first 13 points of the game. The referees weren’t the ones who punched the ball out of James White’s arms on the Cyclones’ second drive of the game. They also didn’t pick off Steele Jantz and return the ball inside the ISU red zone later on in the first quarter. The Cyclones’ first-quarter turnovers were their own, and the 13 points that the Longhorns scored off those turnovers were not sinisterly awarded because the referees were conspiring against the Cyclones. “It was frustrating,” White said. “But I feel like the refs, they have a pretty tough job to do, they’re trying to watch everything on the field.” Now, we’re not saying the referees’ calls didn’t affect the game, because they did. Of the Cyclones’ eight penalties, six were of 10 yards or more, with a handful of holding calls that yielded a series of boos from Cyclone fans. Critics of the Cyclones’ play on Saturday would say that the multiple calls would be due to coaching, but the players don’t necessarily feel that way. “The coaching can only take you so far,” said receiver Darius Reynolds, who was flagged for holding twice on Saturday. “The coaches aren’t out there playing for us on Saturday. The techniques that the coaches teach us are all the right techniques. I felt like I did use the right technique on some plays that they did call holding, so I don’t know. It just comes down to the refs and what the refs see I guess.” Again, before blaming the referees, consider this: the Cyclones were, at one point this year, the secondmost penalized team out of 120 FBS teams with 30 penalties in three games. Iowa State was averaging 10 penalties a game coming in, so some amount of the benefit of the doubt has to go in favor of the referees. The fact they were penalized even more isn’t necessarily the referees’ fault The mistakes will be addressed by the ISU coaching staff, the players will continue to work on negating the mistakes that proved to be fatal in its loss to Texas and will treat that game as a learning experience instead of dwelling on what could have been.

Cyclones will bounce back after loss

By Dean.Berhow-Goll Going to five sets has been a good sign this year for Iowa State — until Sunday. This year the team had won both matches when it has been extended to five sets. The Cyclones defeated North Dakota State in five sets in Fargo, N.D., on Sept. 10 and most notably defeated the then-No. 9 Florida Gators in Gainesville on Sept. 5. That undefeated mark was broken on Sunday as No. 10 Texas took the match in the fifth set, 15-8. “Overall I felt pretty good,” said coach Christy Johnson-Lynch. “I think it was a lot about that third game. We had the opportunity to win that game and I think it would’ve changed the outcome. Texas wasn’t playing very well, and we just didn’t capitalize on it.” Johnson-Lynch mentioned that the team did not play consistently and that there were stretches of great play and poor play. In the second set Iowa State ran out to a 2010 lead from which Texas could not recover. In that set the Cyclones hit on a .395 clip. They also limited Texas’ runs and had an 80 percent sideout rate. In the fifth and deciding set, Texas got out ahead early and took the set along with the match. Texas hit a .353 clip and held Iowa State to a -.056 hitting percentage. “We got down early and had some shaky

plays,” said junior Jaime Straube. “We looked rattled and never got back on track after that.” Leading Iowa State on Sunday was Jaime Straube. She ended the game with 17 Johnsonkills on a .533 clip. Straube Lynch also helped on the defensive end adding three block assists. “We ran a lot of fast stuff,” Straube said. “So I could beat some blockers. I was able to keep the blockers on the other side guessing.” Strube Behind Straube on offense was senior Carly Jenson. She finished the game with 14 kills and 16 digs, recording another double-double. Tenisha Matlock also recorded nine kills and Hannah Willms added eight. Setter Alison Landwehr added 48 assists putting her at ninth all-time at Iowa State with a career 1,861 assists. “We take a lot from it. The things we take away from the match are the things we’ve been working on and we know we have to get better at them,” Johnson-Lynch said. “We’ve got to make defensive plays every opportunity that we can. We’ve got to hit our serving zones. Those things we’ve known, but they become more obvious when you play a team like Texas.”

Even with several Cyclones playing well, Sunday was all about Haley Eckerman and her return to the state of Iowa. Eckerman, a freshman native of Waterloo had a phenomenal game in her first return to home. Eckerman had 21 kills and also added a solo block, to give her a game-high 22 points overall. She is the first player this season to have more than 20 points against Iowa State. “She’s incredible,” Johnson-Lynch said. “Going back to watch tape, our block was perfect, our defense was perfect, and she’d still hit the ball where we weren’t. That’s what really athletic and great players can do.” Being a Waterloo native, naturally Eckerman was recruited extremely hard by Iowa State, but she chose to move south to join Texas. “When you’re recruiting someone who could name any school in the country and go play there, you know you’re up against a lot,” Johnson-Lynch said. “We tried to sell the ‘close to home’ and ‘having your friends and family come and watch you’ and our up and coming program, but I think she wanted to see the world a little bit, so we can’t fault her for that.” Iowa State’s Hannah Willms grew up near Waterloo and went to high school at Dike-New Hartford. Growing up she played club volleyball with Eckerman. The only time they competed against each other was in the Cedar Falls Tournament, but not outside that since Eckerman was 4A and Willms was 2A.

“I’ve known her since sixth grade and played club with her,” Willms said. “I never competed against her in volleyball outside of the Cedar Falls Tournament, but we did compete against each other in the high jump in the good-old eighth grade.” The Cyclones continue their Big 12 play and travel to Manhattan, KS., to compete against Kansas State (13-4, 2-1 Big 12) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. “Going on the road in the Big 12, it doesn’t matter who you play that win is huge,” JohnsonLynch said. “So if we can go on the road and get a win that’s really important to our season.”

some injury or another, Burris is the only one who won’t be able to return this Saturday in Waco, Texas, against No. 25 Baylor. Rhoads said he’s “hopeful by Saturday that everyone will be out there and [ready to] play.” Following the weekly Sunday night practice, he said everyone who was injured Saturday night took part in workouts, including Johnson, who went down following a scary helmet-to-helmet hit with teammate Stephen Ruempolhamer. Johnson said Sunday night he’s feeling better following a few tense moments on the field. “I feel a lot better than I did [Saturday night],” Johnson said. “I feel pretty good. I’m just

sore, real sore. It’s more soreness than anything. Mentally I’m over the accident out on the field.” Johnson said he was conscious on the field and, despite feeling ‘awkward’ and ‘tingly,’ hoped for a short time he would actually be able to return to the game. Trainers and medical staff decided to take him to the hospital as a precaution. The focus for Johnson now, he said himself, will be to get back on the field and play as he always has while being mindful of the consequences. “I just love playing football,” Johnson said. “It’s just a part of me. It comes with the game. I signed up for that kind of stuff. You can’t play timid just because something like that happens. It’s not going to take away from who I am and what I do on the field.”

“I can see having to borrow their car all the time being a burden on your roommates and friends,” Pinto said. “I would try something like this out.” “Our service is particularly convenient for people living on campus, like freshmen, who don’t have a vehicle in Ames,” Bolin said. The WeCar service has received support from the LiveGreen Initiative as a move towards sustainability at Iowa State. The ability to have multiple students share the vehicles rather than having to own their personal cars is intended to reduce Iowa State’s carbon footprint. The company is already located on 13 college campuses and expects to expand to 20 in the near future, Bolin said. The company also operates in urban areas and contracts out to large businesses. “We are basing ISU’s model off of what we did at Princeton. We started with two cars there, and now we are up to around 20,” Bolin said. “We expect Iowa State to grow as rapidly.”

Tolerance, diversity stands as model for Catholic Workers By Katelynn.McCollough Martha Hennessy is a softspoken woman, but her actions certainly are not. She spoke on Monday in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union, giving a speech titled “Inspiration for the 21st Century Radical” in which she discussed her life within the Catholic Worker movement. Hennessy’s grandmother, Dorothy Day, was a cofounder for the newspaper the Catholic Worker. Day helped create this paper in 1933. The newspaper focused on “the dignity of every person,” just as the movement continues to do today. There are currently 185 Catholic Worker Communities in the world. These communities contain Catholic Worker houses, which strive to help the community, the poor, and according to the Catholic Worker movement website, “resist war and social injustice.” As a strong participant in

the Catholic Worker movement, Hennessy volunteers her time to helping those in need as well as protesting issues she feels most strongly about. “The beauty of the model [of the Catholic Worker movement] is in its tolerance and it’s diversity,” said Hennessy, who currently volunteers most of her time to Maryhouse, a Catholic Worker house, in New York. Aside from her work with aiding the poor, Hennessy has also given much of her time to protesting. Though there are multiple issues that Hennessy stands behind, she focused on the issue of torture and the Guantanamo Bay prison camps in her speech. Hennessy has served time in jail for her participation in nonviolent protests. Hennessy’s life may be focused on her faith now, but that’s not how it always has been. “I was caught up in the human errors and inadequacies of the church ... I

have been out of the Catholic Church for most of my adult life.” Hennessy returned to the church and the Catholic Worker movement in 2004. “It brought awareness and awakening to my life.” A class from Ames High was in attendance, as well as many students currently enrolled in several of the religious studies courses here at Iowa State. Also in attendance was Alice McGary, a worker at the Mustard Seed Community Farm, a type of Catholic Worker house that grows food for local food pantries in Ames. “I resonate with all of the basic beliefs of the movement,” McGary said, who has been with the movement for 14 years. “The movement is quite strong ... it is a growing movement,” McGary said. She feels that there is still a reason to keep going in the work she herself is doing. “The people hold the power. I think that’s where my hope comes from.”

Trends shift from

COAST TO COAST By Cicely Gordon ISD Style Writer

Whether owning the streets of Time Square, heading to work in Los Angeles or just rushing to class, it is inevitable to see different trends. The description of “an older lady on a people mover, with upper arms the size of pumpkins” in the article entitle “Fear and clothing at the Iowa State Fair” by Elle Magazine writer, Cintra Wilson, made me wonder, how different could fashion really be depending on the region. Sure, you have your sloppily clad citizens everywhere, but was this article really a just definition of what Iowa fashion consists of? And more importantly, what inspires regions to dress the way they do? I spoke with three ISU students who have experienced big city fashion first hand to get a deeper understanding. “A lot of how people dress has to do with their access to new fashion trends, traditions they grew up with, and the weather and climate of where they live,” said Cassy Dittmer, junior in apparel, merchandising and design production. “People everywhere are inspired by popular culture and celebrities, but how closely they interpret their fashions has a lot to do with their geographic location.” Cassy took an internship

in New York City last summer with designer Diane Von Furstenberg. “The expectations in New York, I think, are set to a higher standard because fashion is so prevalent in everyday life,” said Dittmer. “When you live in New York you don’t even have to remotely interested in fashion, and it will still surround you at all times,” she said. Magazines, movies and television are obvious forms of inspiration in the fashion

world, but people living in New York and Los Angeles have easier access to new trends right away. “In Iowa we are always a year behind in what’s going on, just a little bit behind,” said designer and ISU alumnus, Matthew Christopher. “It starts on the coast and trickles to the middle,” he said. Christopher now lives in New York, where he designs bridal gowns. “The culture, art and their careers are all big influences

on how Iowans dress. New York is completely influenced by people overseas,” Christopher said. “L.A. is all about Hollywood and plastic surgery, and the Midwest is all about college and TV influences.” Amber Smith, senior in marketing, moved to Los Angeles for the summer and noticed some big differences in the way people were unafraid of taking fashion risks. “When I was out there I

wore things I would never wear here,” Smith said. “No one would stare there. There would be women in their 30s at the mall in see through tops with outrageous bras underneath. It was the norm there. I feel like if people wore that to the mall here they would be asked to leave.” Smith also said that L.A. fashion, like Iowa, has a little bit of everything. “People have this idea that everyone is so put together in L.A.,” said Smith. “Obviously there is a lot of high fashion there, but that’s because it’s a big city, and they have a demand for it but really it’s a good mix of everything. L.A. just has access to a lot more as far as apparel.” Although all three seemed to love big city fashion, I also gathered a general consensus that fashion in the Midwest also has its perks. “I think that people really do influence each other and feed off of what the people around them are wearing,” Christopher said. “It’s about the group. Campus girls feed off each other. New York, I feel like no one gives a shit. They might look and laugh at what you’re wearing, but they don’t give a shit what other people think,” Christopher said. “When I lived in Iowa, I got inspired by my environment. You go by what you see and what you know. This person wore that so I’ll wear that.”


Committee selects Todd Snyder as designer By Sara Schlueter ISD Style Writer

The ISU Fashion Show has gotten lucky this year with a new guest designer. Last week, menswear designer Todd Snyder was selected as the guest designer for the fashion show this upcoming year. As an alumnus of the apparel, merchandising and design program, Snyder has done much in the field of fashion design in his short time since graduating from Iowa State. Snyder has experience working with Polo Ralph Lauren and the creative director at J.Crew. Since a previous visit to the fashion show in 2008 as the guest designer, Snyder had a successful fall 2011 menswear line at J.Crew, and he has launched his spring 2012 menswear line. “Having a menswear designer will be a brand new aspect to the show, and we’re excited to work with such a talented man,” said Lisa Bradshaw, student fashion show producer. The talent and excitement Snyder has to offer the fashion show this year undoubtedly will add to the experience for the students. “Todd is a true inspiration to our students and faculty,” said Ann Thye, AMDP adviser.
