Knott’s ‘dream come true’ goes to sidelines
By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com
“It’s been a long journey since day one.” That’s what the teary-eyed Jake
Knott said at his news conference Wednesday. Jake underwent season-ending surgery Monday in Chicago on his injured left shoulder and will begin rehab after a month of immobility.

Death typically summons feelings of pain, sadness, and an overwhelming feeling of loss, but Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, allows families to honor their deceased loved ones with traditions originating from the Aztec and Mayan cultures. “It’s both emotional and also a fun event,” said Jesus Rodriguez, junior in construction engineering and president of the Latino-based fraternity Sigma Lambda Beta. Rodriguez remembers celebrating Dias de los Muertos every year as a child. Although the holiday is known as “Day of the Dead,” the celebration takes place over a two-day period for specific reasons. “Nov. 1, is celebrated for the children who have passed away. You bring out their toys in reminiscence of the children and any games that they would play,” said Julio Ramirez, senior in industrial technology and president of the Mexican-

Hurricane alters plans By Eric.Debner @iowastatedaily.com While the state of Iowa may have dodged Hurricane Sandy’s left hook as it passed through the East coast, Iowa State still felt the wake of the storm. One group of staff and students in particular was impacted by the hurricane’s fervor. Twelve students and four staff from multidisciplinary research backgrounds in biomass gasification and pyrolysis and technoeconomic analysis of biofuels production were originally scheduled to fly out to Pittsburgh on Oct. 29, to present their work at the week-long American Institute of Chemical Engineers conference. “As of Sunday night, it looked like the storm would pass directly through Pittsburgh,” said Robert Brown, director of ISU-based Bioeconomy Institute and Anson Marston distinguished professor of engineering. “I made the decision late Sunday not to go based on the fact that I was responsible for a large group, [and] we were essentially flying into a hurricane.” According to Patriot-News,

tory, enough to rank it among the top three or four in its history.” The risks involved with flying out to the conference were too great, and Brown predicted the airport in Chicago would close at some point. The concern was that the group could get stranded in Chicago for multiple days.
An acre of the Amazon rainforest is now in safer hands thanks to the efforts of The Lorax Troop, a small ISU student-run group of eco-activists who advocate for rainforest and wildlife protection all over the world. Through a three-day fundraiser that began last Monday, the group met their goal of raising at least $100, enough to buy and protect one pristine acre of the Amazon rainforest. The group raised money by selling home-baked goods that did not contain palm oil (a precious and highlyexploited commodity of the world’s rainforests) outside Parks Library for one dollar each. “It’s pretty exciting to be able to save a piece of rainforest that hasn’t been touched yet,” said Nicole Laurito, sophomore in animal ecology and founder and president of

Ames, ISU Police Departments
The information in the log comes from the ISU and City of Ames police departments’ records. All those accused of violating the law are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Oct. 20 Anthony Myers, 29, 3402 Oakland St., was arrested and charged with driving while barred (reported at 10:18 p.m.). Wilington Teixeira, 24, 209 Washington Ave. Apt. 2, was arrested and charged with public intoxication (reported at 12:50 a.m.).
Oct. 21 Kera Coggins, 21, 1300 Gateway Hills Park Drive, Apt. 301, was arrested and charged with driving under suspension, was subsequently released on citation at Hayward Avenue and Knapp Street (reported at 1:43 a.m.). A 17-year-old female was taken into custody and charged with operating while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and underage possession of alcohol in the 2700 block of Lincoln Way. She was referred to the Juvenile Court Services and released to care of parents (reported at 1:43 a.m.). Yifan Zhao, 26, 4305 Maricopa Dr., Unit 2, was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated at South Dakota Avenue and Steinbeck Street (reported at 4:07 a.m.). Vehicles driven by Audrey Simpson and Alex Kunvatanagarin were involved in a property damage collision at Haber Road and University Boulevard (reported at 4:55 p.m.). An individual reported the theft of items from a vehicle in Lot 79, the incident occurred sometime since Oct. 19 (reported at 10:29 p.m.).
Derek Farrington, 23, 3702 Jewel Dr., was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated and possession of a firearm while intoxicated (reported at 3:56 a.m.). David Johansan, 56, 3208 Woodland St., was arrested and charged with domestic abuse (reported at 7:05 p.m.). Justin Nordstrom, 21, 3812 Tripp St., Unit 313, was arrested and charged with public intoxication (reported at 3:30 a.m.). Tobias Rains, 19, 211 Lynn Ave., Unit 213, was arrested and charged with public intoxication (reported at 2:22 a.m.). Davonta Royster, 19, 1101 Oklahoma Dr., was arrested and charged with public intoxication (reported at 3:24 a.m.). Christian Simonson, 21, 3812 Tripp St., was arrested and charged with public intoxication (reported at 3:46 a.m.).
Oct. 22 Scott McDonald, 19, 311 Ash Ave., was arrested and charged with public intoxication and simple misdemeanor assault at Lyon Hall (reported at 1:14 a.m.). Benjamin Whitlock, 31, of Toledo, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was additionally taken into custody on a warrant held by the Tama County Sheriff’s Office (reported at 12:29 a.m.). Vehicles driven by Karla Drapal and Peter Roberts were involved in a property damage collision at Center Drive (reported at 9:18 a.m.).
>>HURRICANE.p1 With the flight to Pittsburgh ultimately canceled for Brown and his group, the conference continued on without them. Even though the storm did not directly affect the group’s projects, Brown said Hurricane Sandy still blocked an important opportunity for the ISU researchers to present and share their work with peers and scholars worldwide. “Everyone put in a lot of time and effort into preparing their presentations for the conference,” said Patrick Johnston, Center for Sustainable Environmental Technologies researcher in syngas characterization. Each of the researchers acknowledged their initial feelings of disappointment at the missed opportunity. “At first, our reaction was disappointment,” said Kaige Wang, a graduate assistant researcher in mechanical engineering. “The flight was can-
celed, and I think now that we are lucky.” Even Hurricane Sandy’s clouds have a silver lining: With the trip to Pittsburg canceled, an ideal opportunity arose for the researchers to still present their work on campus in an event Brown dubbed the “Sandy Alternative Symposium.” “Not a lot of these guys interact with each other on a daily basis. It’s great that we can all get together,” Johnston said. “Everyone could share all their information and knowledge about their subject area of interest because there’s such a large [multidisciplinary] group here.” The symposium also helped a group of researchers to refine their presentations through peer evaluation for future conferences. “I’m thinking we need to do this every year,” Brown said. “It’s still a good opportunity for them to present and show their peers [at Iowa State] what they are doing.”
>>DEATH.p1 “Nov. 2, at the strike of midnight, that’s when the adults are coming out. That’s when you go to the cemetery; you decorate with flowers and clean it up, and you have a picnic there,” Ramirez said. Creating an altar to place pictures, flowers, candles and sugar skulls (calaveras) is a part of the long-standing tradition. Along with favorite foods of the dead, the altars often include the basic needs for the spirits to get ready for their return. The altar is often created in the home or at the grave site. Colorful tissue paper (papel picado) is used to create intricate designs like skulls to hang across the altar. “We usually use strong colors, rich colors: yellow, red [and] blue. Colors that bring energy [and] that bring brightness,” Rodriguez said. Ramirez and group members plan to construct a selffunded altar for the Day of
>>RAINFOREST.p1 The Lorax Troop. The plot of land, which is roughly the size of half a football field, is located in northern Brazil and is home to hundreds of different species of plants and animals. The $100 goes to an international conservation charity known as the World Land Trust, who will then purchase the land under their own name and protect it from people who are bent on exploiting the land for its natural resources. Sometimes, however, loggers slip past their defenses and cut down trees illegally. “It’s hard to stop illegal loggers. They’ve put patrol people out there, and they do the best they can,” Laurito said. “But, if someone sneaks onto your land and cuts down big hardwood trees, you can’t really do anything about it unless you want to get killed.” Along with the trail of deforestation that loggers leave behind, rangers and cattlemen are purchasing increasingly

Josh Dickman, sophomore in anthropology and co-founder and treasurer of The Lorax Troop, calls these feedlots “cheap meat farms” and said that they directly affect Americans by saturating the market with low quality and unethically raised beef.

the Dead celebration held Nov. 6, in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union. The event will educate students about the traditions and history of the celebration with crafts and face painting from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. “Basically, we want people to learn stuff outside of what they already know. For example, when people think about trick-or-treating or Oct. 31, all they think about is dressing up, getting candy, or, for example, college students going out and partying.” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez hopes that students at Iowa State are able to experience other cultures and have new perspectives on what Day of the Dead represents. “You celebrate; you embrace death. It’s something that’s going to happen, and so [those who celebrate] embrace it; they’re not scared of the day,” Ramirez said. “That’s when they welcome back family who has passed.”
massive puzzle of land plots protected by the World Land Trust. According to the World Land Trust website, the organization “protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre” and has “funded partner organizations around the world to create reserves and give permanent protection to habitat and their wildlife.” Last fall, The Lorax Troop hosted a similar event in which they sold t-shirts. Proceeds went toward the purchase of an acre of rainforest in Indonesia — a region of the world where, according to Laurito, an estimated 90 percent of rainforest territory has been degraded. The Amazon rainforest has not yet reached such a critical point as Indonesia’s rainforests, and The Lorax Troop hopes to keep things that way. “It’s really important that we protect what’s left,” Laurito said. “The Amazon is the largest rainforest left in the world that hasn’t been completely destroyed.”

File photo: Adam Ring/Iowa State Daily Iowa Board of Regents members David Miles and Robert Downer listen during a meeting Sept. 12. The Board of Regents is working on phasing out the controversial tuition set-aside program.
Tuition set-aside plan to be phased out aid. The proposed phase-out is contingent upon Regent schools receiving a $39.5 million increase in funding from the state for need-based scholarships. The merit-based scholarships at Iowa State would come from private donations, for which a goal of $150 million dollars over five years is set. Both of these options would eventually result in lowered tuition rates for students. The proposal asks that the section of the Board of Regents policy manual that requires the Regent universities to contribute at least 15 percent of “gross tuition proceeds” to set-aside, be eliminated. “I think there’s mixed feelings about the [tu-
By Lissandra.Villa @iowastatedaily.com Tuition set-aside, a program into which all students at Iowa State have been paying 19.1 percent of their tuition to fund need- and meritbased scholarships, is facing the possibility of being phased out within the next five years. The Iowa Board of Regents moved further on the proposal after their meeting Oct. 25. The program was created due to a lack of a specific program from the state to provide those scholarships at Iowa State University, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa. Iowa private colleges have state-funded

ition set-aside] program in general. It’s pretty controversial, the program itself,” said Andrew Gall, chief of staff for the Government of the
Student Body. “There’s all this discussion over tuition going up, and high tuition prices, and student debt, and then, you take a look at this program, and you’re saying, ‘Wow, 19.1 percent? Almost a quarter of our tuition is going to other students!’ Students get passionate about that.” The students receiving aid from the tuition set-aside funds are not exempt from having to pay into the program. The biggest complaint against the program, however, is that many students argue that they do not want to fund others’ education. The five-year plan proposed to phase out the tuition set-aside program will be voted on at the Board of Regents’ December meeting.

Campustown welcomes dance club, bar
Photo: Adam Ring/Iowa State Daily The Ultra Lounge is an establishment featuring two rooms: one for dancing, the other for quiet conversation. The Ultra Lounge had its soft opening Oct. 18; the grand opening was Oct. 31.
Photo: Adam Ring/Iowa State Daily AJ Singh, owner of AJ’s Liquors, decided to open Ultra Lounge without knowing for sure whether it would be a bar or a club. The lounge offers live music and rotates through genres.
By Kari.Paige @iowastatedaily.com Five years ago, AJ Singh, owner of AJ’s Liquors & Market, opened a small liquor store in Campustown. After building strong relationships and a supportive clientele, Singh had worked his way up to the Grand Opening for Ultra Lounge on Wednesday. Ultra Lounge is a singlelevel establishment with two rooms and a full bar located at 2518 Lincoln Way. One room is a dance floor where music is played, and the other is more quiet for friends to come in, have a drink and enjoy their conversations. There is a chance another floor could be added, but as of now the owner is unsure about the addition. The soft opening of Ultra Lounge was Oct. 18. The main customers in attendance were those that regularly come into the liquor store. Singh said the people seemed to come in happy and leave happy. Seth Rasmussen, a frequent bar patron of AJ’s Liquors & Market enjoyed the opening to Ultra Lounge.
Ultra Lounge ■■ 2518 Lincoln Way ■■ Owned by AJ Singh ■■ One level for music and dancing, one level for conversations with friends ■■ Singh also owns AJ’s Liquors & Markets ■■ The tone of Ultra Lounge is not set yet in terms of whether it is a bar or a club
“I had a good time. It was nice and upbeat. I actually went into the back room and hung out with my friends,” Rasmussen said. “I like AJ’s Liquor anyway, and I like to support him.” The decision to open Ultra Lounge on a Thursday was a strategic one for Singh. “Monday is football day. Nobody goes out. I want them to study too,” Singh said. “They will come. It’s not the point that they are not going to come, but still, you have to take care of your customers.” After 10 years of owning a restaurant, Singh discovered it is easier to accommodate customers at a bar. He actively chose not to
offer food service at Ultra Lounge. “I used to own a restaurant before,” Singh said. “I think as a bar business, you can make people more happy.” Singh is still working out some ideas for the lounge. It isn’t decided if Ultra Lounge is a club or a bar yet. Depending on the time of night, the clientele differs. “I have all different clientele that come from [AJ‘s Liqours & Market], and they all love to go there,” Singh said. Each day a different DJ comes to play a different genre of music. Singh explained one night could be Latino music and another could be country music. “Everybody will be leaving in a month for the holidays, so I’m trying to pick and choose at the moment what I can give them to make them happy when they come,” Singh said. Singh said he was still working out the details, but the customers are still happy. “I was impressed with the drink deals,” Rasmussen said. Hoping to have 100 to 150 people attend, Singh was looking forward to the grand opening. Singh said his customers deserve to have a good time.

Even student government needs balance Each week, the officers of the Government of the Student Body, senators and executives alike, gather in the Campanile Room of the Memorial Union. That building is at the center of student life, as is the originator of all organizations, GSB. And believe it or not, GSB is indeed a government. While they cannot exercise judicial authority to put students in prison or fine them for their bad behavior, and while they cannot raise money unless the university and the Iowa Board of Regents approve, they have a very real function. GSB collects more than $2 million annually in student fees, which it uses to fund student groups and their activities. Given that they have so much money to spend (at least, in the eyes of a student), it is somewhat surprising that perennial issues of GSB presidential campaigns, year in and year out for decades past, is increasing oversight over GSB and increasing student participation in GSB. Voter turnout in those early March elections is low: seldom more than 10 percent of the student body. Short of actually going to GSB Senate meetings — held at 7 p.m. every Wednesday — students have little opportunity to interact with their “representatives.” Participation in the past few years has indeed increased. Looking through Daily stories about election results over the past few years, it is evident that turnout has increased overall. Additionally, beginning last year, senators are required to connect with their constituents by visiting one club each month. Most recently, senators heard from their constituents after controversy arose about the largely discretionary nature of the Executive Initiative Account and absence of many formal bylaws on it. At yesterday’s meeting, the senators took another step on the road to creating more oversight and transparency, a road they began to walk down on both their own initiative and in response to constituent concern. Like all governments that have the power to dispense with property that formerly belonged to others (in this case, your student fees), GSB needs checks and balances. In the hands of an indiscreet president interested more in his or her own gratification rather than the welfare of the student body, the $1,500 Executive Initiative Account could be used for exactly that, and fritter away student money. Thankfully, that has not yet happened. Students are notoriously disengaged from campus politics and cannot be relied upon to elect presidents of character the same way voters at other political levels more often than not elect representatives who do not abuse their authority. To guard against the very real possibility that a future GSB president might use the Executive Initiative Account for his or her own benefit and not replenish it, the account merits benign rules.

City needs parking space “Bike-friendly” Ames provides little room for cyclists’ wheels
his morning I went to unlock my bike after leaving it locked up on Stanton Avenue. To my dismay, I found the seat post broken, the front tire kicked in and the fender bent. I couldn’t even wheel the bike forward. Sadly, I had feared that it would be damaged during the night but had hoped for the best. Of course, I realize that this was partly my fault. I knew Campustown would be teeming with drunks; it was Halloween weekend. And I have heard plenty of my friends complain about their bikes being damaged or stolen after leaving them locked up in Campustown. I’m not here to rail against drinking in Campustown, but the stupidity and pointlessness of ruining people’s bikes for fun is infuriating. Every time I lock up my bike on Welch or Stanton Avenue, I know I’m running the risk of it being damaged, but people should not have to be so nervous about leaving their bikes there. The problem is simple: There are hardly any bike racks. Sure there are parking meters, light posts, and a few single bike racks here and there, but really, there is nowhere safe to park your bike. In a town that prides itself on being bike-friendly, it seems strange that there are no bike racks in such a populated, busy part of town. A good friend of mine and former professor, Sandra Looft, published a piece about this problem in 2010 in the Iowa State Daily. Looft is a cyclist and a talented writer; you can check her out on her blog, Simply Bike. In her opinion piece titled “Ames needs more bike racks” she described this “bike-unfriendly infrastructure.” The biggest problem she highlighted was the lack of bike racks. She said, “There is never a shortage of bikes chained to the parking meters and trees, and I have no doubt many a driver has found the parked bike obscuring their meter annoying. But what is a cyclist to do when no better options exist?” She raised a valid concern, and I myself have often been troubled

By Kristen.Daily @iowastatedaily.com by where to park my bike when no bike racks are available. During the day in Campustown, I don’t usually worry about my bike being stolen or damaged, but leaving it there at night is a different question. Either way the situation calls for more bike racks. If there were safe, out-of-the-way places to park your bike, I think this problem
might have a better chance of being solved. Plus, Ames would more truthfully be able to claim that it is a bike-friendly community. Apparently, contacting the local patrons of Welch Avenue has been unsuccessful, as well as contacting the city’s traffic engineer. Personally, I would be happy to advocate for more bike racks in Ames. If Ames would like to truthfully claim itself as bike-friendly, this change needs to happen.
However, it may take more than a small handful of people to make this possible. If you are a cyclist or would simply like to be able to safely park your bike in Campustown and around the community, it’s time to speak up to local officials and business owners.

Cherry picking not really so sweet W
e are all assaulted with information constantly. Whether we realize it or not, we are affected by what we hear and see all the time. It would be great, then, if we received every piece of information necessary. Unfortunately, we don’t. For example, when watching commercials about how delicious and satisfying McDonald’s food is, wouldn’t it be more informative to give viewers the full nutritional information for every item displayed? After all, consumers are going to be the ones making the choice of where to spend their money, and nothing makes for better choices than being informed. Unfortunately, it does not behoove McDonald’s to completely inform their commercial audience. They are merely advertising the information that makes them look good. This approach to presenting only selected information has been termed “cherry picking,” since only the best pieces of information, from the presenter’s standpoint, are used, just as only the best cherries are picked from the tree. While this is certainly a common motif in the world of fast-food advertising, cherry picking makes a far more important appearance in the rest of our lives as well. Consider the American political arena. Decisions about our politics and our elected officials can determine the course our country takes for years to come, yet truly informed citizens are a rare commodity at best. A nationwide poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University, concluded that even people who regularly watch televised news can only correctly answer an average of 1.8 questions out of four in foreign political events and 1.6 out of five in domestic events. The study went on to show that respondents who only watched Fox News scored lower than respondents who watched no news at all — a claim that was seized by many as proof of Fox News’ lackluster reporting. This claim in itself is a prime example of cherry picking, as the study found that respondents who only watched MSNBC News also scored lower than respondents who watched no news. As Dan Cassino, co-author of the study in question, said of the negative attention Fox news received, “It was sensationalized... MSNBC was second worst, but it wasn’t talked about.” Such biased presentation is exactly what can lead people who look to

By Phil.Brown @iowastatedaily.com only one source for information to become misinformed. The upcoming presidential election has seen its fair share of cherry picking as well. Supporters of President Barack Obama have been claiming for weeks that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will cut taxes on the wealthy if elected to office. The “wealthy” distinction is made to lead viewers to believe that the viewer is not going to be one of the beneficiaries. While the original statement is true, it is only a partial truth. Romney’s plan is to propose 20 percent tax cuts for everyone paying income tax. In the spirit of full information, however, I would encourage everyone interested to view Romney’s full tax plan at his website, mittromney.com. Romney’s supporters are not innocent of selective advertising, either. There are many claims about the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as “Obamacare,” being made by Romney and his supporters. One of
these claims is that Obamacare is robbing Medicare of over $700 billion. While this is somewhat true — there will be budget cuts to Medicare totaling more than $700 billion over the next 10 years — it is simply not the whole truth. For anyone interested in what Obama’s campaign has to say about the Affordable Care Act, barackobama.com has a number of interactive features to do just that. There has been a tendency in our society to worry that we will be ruled by a total control of information, as people are in the novels “1984” and “Fahrenheit 451.” It has become apparent that it is instead far easier to control people by simply showing them partial truths and letting them assume the truths are whole. Such is a dangerous system that relies on viewer apathy or blind trust. If anyone who sees a partial truth takes the time to look for other pieces of information, a cherry picker simply looks foolish.

Big 12 Volleyball Standings
By Dan.Cole @iowastatedaily.com In a season that began with promise, the ISU soccer team concluded 2012 on a three-game losing streak and failed to make the Big 12 tournament for the fifth consecutive season. The Cyclones (10-10, 1-7 Big 12) played well in nonconference play, beginning the season by winning eight of their first 12 games. But once conference play began, wins became elusive as the Cyclones won just two of their final six matches.
“The biggest surprise for me is that we didn’t do as well in conference,” said ISU junior forward Jennifer Dominguez. “I think we played some of our best soccer against some of the best teams in the country, and it was just upsetting not to see that translate throughout the Big 12 and to get more wins.” The Cyclones possessed the talent to have success this season, but were unable to put together a winning formula too often. Iowa State faced four top-25 nationally ranked opponents this season, losing to each team by just one goal apiece. A number of key players suffered injuries for the Cyclones near the mid-season point, including senior defender Megan Longobardi, junior goalkeeper Maddie Jobe and senior Amanda Woelfel.
“You could tell, in the stat column, we had a hard time keeping the ball out of the net,” said ISU coach Wendy Dillinger. “I think that’s just because we had some significant contributors out during that conference schedule in the back line for us.” The 2012 season did contain a number of positive achievements for Iowa State, including some historic numbers. Dominguez earned the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honor for the 2012 season. Dominguez led the conference in goals with 14 and in points with 28. Her 14 goals are the second-most in a season in program history. Dominguez and fellow junior Emily Goldstein

Photo: Huiling Wu/Iowa State Daily Jake Knott speaks at his first news conference since his shoulder surgery on Wednesday at the Jacobson Athletic Building.
Knott’s injury ends collegiate career too soon E ven as a member of the media, I’ve always rooted for Jake Knott. He never came off as cocky, never walked with brashness in his step, never carried himself in an unpleasing manner. Knott was always a pleasure to work with, even when he didn’t have much to say. On Wednesday, Knott addressed the media for the first time since his shoulder surgery, confirming all of our fears that his playing career as an Iowa State Cyclone has ended. ISU coach Paul Rhoads said Monday that there might be a possibility that Knott could return if Iowa State (5-3, 2-3 Big 12) should make it to a bowl game. However, Knott himself was hesitant to be as optimistic. “Judging by what they had to do, I’d say as of right now, yeah it would probably end up ruling me out just to be safe,” Knott said. “If something crazy happened and I recovered in a way that was unheard of then I could possibly make it back. “But right now, I wouldn’t say that it’s a distinct possibility.” The ISU community is weeping the loss and even though the team
By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com is moving on without Knott, his absence creates a huge void. During his three seasons as a starter, Knott has accounted for 12.8 percent of the team’s total tackles — one full percent more than fellow linebacker and Knott’s close counterpart A.J. Klein. While Knott wouldn’t ever reject help from his teammates, he was never a slouch when getting things on his own as well. For every assisted tackle he made in cardinal and gold, Knott made almost twice as many solo tackles (1.65:1). Without Knott, Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg’s pass during a late drive probably would have connected for an eventual game-winning score for the Hawkeyes against the Cyclones in Iowa City this past September. Without Knott, Baylor and
“I said, ‘Hey doctor, you think I could play?” Jake said. Jake’s mother, Laura Knott said it was like Christmas morning when the doctors said he could play. “It was like he was a little boy at Christmas opening up presents,” Laura said, smiling. “He was so happy. I knew it was going to be hard for him, but as a mom, to see him happy for just a short period of time, it was just a relief.” There was no doubt in Jake’s mind that he was going to play. Not even the fact that he couldn’t use pain medication to dull the pain he would feel throughout the entire game caused him doubt “That’s Jake; he doesn’t want to let anybody down,” Laura said. Jake talked to coach Paul Rhoads before the game, letting him know that he wouldn’t let the injury affect his playing and that he could mentally block it out. Throughout his career, Jake had played with injuries, but he hadn’t dealt with anything like this, let alone facing it without any sort of medication. “I told coach Rhoads before the game that I’m not going to let this affect me,” Jake said. “You’re not going to have to pull me out of the game because it hurts so bad, because it’s not going to hurt. I’m not going to let it affect me mentally or out on the field, but I told him if he thought it was affecting me or hurting the team, in any way at all, to pull me out and that I wasn’t too proud to get pulled out.” Jake went and played the game, earning himself Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors for his 11-tackle performance during the 35-21 Homecoming victory against Baylor. After the game, Jake walked off the field of Jack Trice Stadium for the last time. He hugged his family, coaches and his teammates before going into the locker room one last time. Rhoads spoke in front of the team as he usually does for postgame. This time he commended Jake for what he had done. Rhoads thanked him and told his

football team, “Jake Knott didn’t come back to play for himself. He came back for you guys.” Jake will now change his role for the rest of the season. Instead of the team captain and leading tackler, Jake will step to the sidelines and contribute to the team with his knowledge and voice. Jake said he had been receiving support from everyone in all forms of communication such as texts, emails, phone calls and even letters, thanking him for what he did in the game and for what he’s done for Iowa State. “It’s amazing — I didn’t even realize the kind of support I had behind me,” Knott said. “The emails, the letters, the texts, the calls: I read every single one of them. It’s truly amazing the fan base that we have and when you do things right how many people support you and have your back. “It’s a dream come true for me to be here.”

Fennelly, Cyclones prepare for season’s 1st exhibition game By Stephen.Koenigsfeld @iowastatedaily.com Coming off a 2011 NCAA tournament appearance in March, the ISU women’s basketball team is ready to take the floor in the 201213 season. ISU coach Bill Fennelly wants to get down to business and not waste any time. “It’s time to play somebody,” Fennelly said. “Most coaches want another week or another day, but it’s time to play; put the uniforms on and give them something to look forward to.” Fennelly talked about a slippage factor that could come into play when the Cyclones step on the court of Hilton Coliseum for the first time this season. “It’s not a long way from Sukup to Hilton, but it seems to be a bigger separation from when the lights go on,” Fennelly said. Freshman Emiah Bingley will get her first taste of Hilton magic Thursday night, when the Cyclones take the floor against Northwest Missouri State. Bingley said there have been a few things she’s been looking forward to, but one thing stands out in particular: game experience. “This is something totally different for me,” Bingley said. “Of course, it’s just playing the game, but it’s a totally different level.” Bingley said she’s hoping to look to her veteran teammates for help getting through her first games as a newcomer. “I’ll lean on them a good amount just to show me the way and get me through these first couple of games,” Bingley said. “But I think I’ll get the hang of it pretty soon.” Junior Hallie Christofferson is one of those
>>CAREER.p6 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III probably would have rushed for 500 yards in 2011 — Knott had 18 tackles despite having dislocated his shoulder twice. While Rhoads was the architect of multiple upsets of ranked teams — including No. 2 Oklahoma State last November — in his threeplus years at Iowa State, Knott left his handprints all over those blueprints. When Knott teared up eight minutes into his 11-minute news conference on Wednesday, nobody said a word. We waited, trying to imagine the severity of emotions running through his mind at that point or even the past few days. None of us could com-
Events When: 7 p.m. Thursday Fast fact: The game will be the first of two total exhibition games the ISU women’s basketball team will play before the season officially begins on Nov. 11. What: Northwest Missouri State vs. Iowa State Where: Hilton Coliseum veterans. Christofferson said she still remembers her first time running out on the court. “I still get jitters when I run out there,” Christofferson said. “Seeing everybody in the stands, it’s crazy.” Getting out on the court at Hilton will be a breath of fresh air for the Cyclones. “It will give us a good time to get together and just get out of practice,” Christofferson said. “It will give us a little look on how the rest of the season will turn out.” The Cyclones are looking healthy for the most part as they head into a set of exhibition games. Only one player will not dress Thursday night: freshman Madison Baier. Baier rolled her ankle in practice and will not play in either exhibition game so she can recover. Baier is one of three freshmen on the roster this year. Fennelly is hoping to learn one thing in particular from the first exhibition game. “Anyone can handle success. I want to see how they handle mistakes,” Fennelly said.
prehend it. This is a kid who came to Iowa State as a lean defensive back that was transformed into one of the most destructive linebackers in the country. The work he put into these past four years cannot be quantified in hours in the gym or reps in practice. They can’t be boiled down to the number of heartbeats or rushes of adrenaline through his body out on the field. That’s why we feel for Jake Knott — of anyone to have sustained a seasonending injury, he was the last person it should have happened to. And that’s exactly why I’m rooting for him.

senior in journalism from Urbandale, Iowa.
>>HOPEFUL.p6 were both named to the AllBig 12 second team. Goldstein netted four goals this season, tying her for second-best on the team. She also recorded one assist and started 17 of 20 games for the Cyclones. “It was a good season,” Goldstein said. “It was disappointing that we didn’t make it into the Big 12 tournament, but we accomplished a lot of things that we wanted to this year, saw a lot of improvement and did things on the field that we don’t see a lot of teams do.” The ISU roster boasted 18 players that earned Academic All-Big 12 honors this season, the most in both the Big 12 and in program history. Junior Jessica Stewart topped the honorees with a 4.0 GPA.

The majority of this season’s key contributors are going to be seniors next season, which is setting the expectations for 2013 at a demanding height. “My expectations are a complete turnaround.” Goldstein said. “We need to go to the Big 12 tournament and possibly place well, if not win it, and then try to get to
NCAAs. That’s what I want to do for my senior year.” Besides Dominguez and Goldstein, next years seniors will include Brittany Morgan (five assists in 2012), Erin Green (one goal, two assists), Jessica Stewart (two goals, three assists), Meredith Skitt (two goals, three assists), Theresa Kucera (two goals, led team in minutes played), and
goalkeeper Maddie Jobe (7-7 record in 2012). “I think knowing that it’s their senior year, that it’s their last chance, is going to be a ton of motivation for them,” Dillinger said. The Cyclones will begin offseason activities in a couple of weeks in preparation for spring games and the 2013 season.

By Rahemma Mayfield Ames247 writer Every three years, the theater and music departments come together to create an opera in Fisher Theater. This weekend, the novella “Candide” by Voltaire will be performed as this year’s event. The play follows Candide, a naively hopeful young man who, through extravagant adventures, finds out the world is not always what it seems. While the two Iowa State departments merge every year to form the Stars Over Veishea production, director Brad Dell said the opera experience is very different. “It’s a more classical music production, as opposed to musical theater, which is what the Stars Over Veishea musical is in the spring,” Dell said. “Music and theatre are so intrinsi-
cally linked in so many different ways. We are the Department of Music and Theatre, so it just makes sense that we collaborate. It’s essential.” Aaron Hofmeyer, senior in vocal performance and the actor playing Candide, has performed in the traditional event before. He played the role of Anthony in the “Sweeney Todd” production three years before. Hofmeyer said the experience of the opera collaboration is always a success. “It’s a logical symbiosis between music and theatre that I expect to work, and it always does,” Hofmeyer said. The collaboration between the two departments also provides new opportunities for students, and allows them to make connections between departments. “I’ve gotten to meet a lot of music majors that I probably would not have
met without being in the show, so it’s a great way to have our departments cross over. ... It’s a great way to enhance collaboration,” said Mitchell Nieland, senior in performing arts. Bri Baltes, senior in integrated studio arts, said “Candide” has given her the chance to combine her long-time love of singing and acting. “I have always loved singing and I have always loved acting, but it has always been two separate ideas. With [“Candide”], I get to do both and everyone in the show is so talented,” Baltes said. “It’s an amazing experience to get to sing with people who are so good at what they do.” The collaboration is also essential to students who will some day work in the same environment. “My experience is that I have been trained as an actor, and I’m a pretty decent dancer, but singing has always
been my weak area. Through this show, my vocal talents have made leaps and bounds in terms of improvement,” Nieland said. Hofmeyer noted that the collaboration is not just key for performing arts majors, but it also helps vocal performance majors stand out in the crowd. “As a vocal performance major, it is very important to be comfortable on stage. You have the most songs, your voice is heard a lot, but also as an actor, you have to have a wide range of emotions. In this performance, you have to have a dichotomy of emotions. You are at the end of the spectrum one minute, and then you have to have the exact opposite in the next two seconds,” Hofmeyer said. “Combining the two and using any performance you have will help you in your career later. You can build on that experience.”

ISU club welcomes all musicians
By CJ Eilers Ames247 writer Those familiar with Iowa State are aware of its music program, but perhaps not aware of music activities outside of the program. Genre (Gathering Everyone Nearby to Raucously Entertain), one of these clubs outside of the program, gives students a chance to play their instruments in a non-competitive and fun environment. Genre was formed in the spring of 2011 by Malcolm Kelly, junior in mechanical engineering, and John Etherington, junior in electrical engineering. The club had its first official meeting in the fall of that year. Students involved in Genre are not part of a music ensemble in the music program, for such reasons as conflicting schedules and the need for a less competitive group. “It provides a very low pressure environment,” said Jon Iverson, a member of Genre. “You don’t need to come in with a practiced arrangement.” The group contains students from a wide variety of backgrounds, majors and skill levels. Currently, the group has about 20 active members, but many more students are interested enough to be included on a mailing list. The group serves many purposes for its members:

networking, enabling them to rent instruments and to play with people they have never played with before. Genre members have gone on to form independent projects outside the group and other musical activities in the local area. “We want them to get to know each other, so they can go out, play and form bands and have a network,” Kelly said. Meeting every other Friday, the members play
many different genres of music that include jazz, funk, Indian and other international styles. Members play a variety of instruments for the ensemble; drums, guitars, bass, accordion, synthesizers, fiddle and even a didgeridoo. Much of the playing is more improvisation based. Aishwarya Srindhi, the group’s publicity chair, said Genre “is not very rigid. You don’t have to plan it.” In fact, there are no requirements
to join except knowing an instrument. “We want to make music,” Etherington said. “We’re not music teachers.” Genre began renting out instruments to members this month in order to accommodate members who would otherwise be unable to play. Although they are not funded by the Government of the Student Body, the group collects dues from members. According to Kelly and Etherington, having more
members is their goal. “There are a lot of people who are on our email list,” Kelly said. “They are just waiting for the group to become bigger.” Genre invites anyone interested in playing music to join them for their bi-weekly Friday meetings in room 125 in Music Hall. To learn more about the group, go to their Facebook page at Genre Music Club or email them at isugenre@ gmail.com.

Q: When did you start working at SUB? A: Well, it was kind of a starting process. I started my freshman year... working with Student Union Board... just working with them doing small events, working kind of as one of the people who get the chairs and get the space set up and do day-of show type of things, and then worked my way up with who was the director of the performing arts last year, Andrew Lopez. I was working with him kind of as his right hand, starting to give me more responsibilities to the effect that I was running Open Mic Nights by myself.

Presented by Ames247.com
Q: What do you like about running the Open Mic Nights? A: One thing I really like is that I never know what I’m going to get. One week we had these two girls that
were playing ukuleles, and it was really beautiful. And we had another week where we had mostly stand-up comics, and we saw some pretty good humour, and then you saw some terrible humour.
Q: Do you plan to use this experience as a career? A: It’s a beautiful learning experience, and I know that there are a lot of people in my major that would kill to be in the position that I’m in. Just talking to my professors, them knowing my name they’ll be like, “ Yeah, you’ve put on events, and we’ve seen you in the Daily, and we saw you. If we want to talk to someone, your name comes up; it’s weird because we know you’re a student, but we have to talk to you on a professional level.” It’s an awesome and perfect example of work study.
Q: Do you have a favorite performance throughout the time that you have working at the Maintenance Shop? A: Definitely; the last comedian I had was Chelsea Peretti from “Parks and Recreation.” She was actually sick... The fact that she is going out there and killing it while feeling under the weather, that has to be the best feeling ever.

Game: ‘Serious Sam 3’

Movie: ‘Sinister’ Presented by Ames247.com
By Maggie McGinity It’s hard to follow an album packed with P!nk’s greatest hits, but “The Truth About Love,” P!nk’s latest album, delivers. On this album, P!nk reminds us why she is an international pop star but also explores new musical directions and her own life. The title sums up the subject matter P!nk covers on this album. The album’s songs can be grouped into three sets: dysfunctional relationships, acoustic ballads and single power anthems. The title track, “The Truth About Love,” is a doo-woppy tune with bass and driving background vocals which ponders the light and dark sides of love. “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” leads the single power anthems. This hit single, which reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this summer, is a dance-able pop-rock tune with a clever, self-explanatory title and plenty of P!nk’s famous couldn’t-care-less attitude. “Beam Me Up,” a ballad with acoustic guitar, layers of vocals, strings, harmonies and piano, describes “A parallel universe/Where nothing breaks and nothing hurts.”
By Levi Castle “Serious Sam” is a legendary franchise that is the poster child for the glorious old days of gaming where we killed things for the pure sake of killing things. SS3 is a positive addition to the series, with some refinements implemented that don’t take away from what made the game famous years ago. This game is all about chaos, gore and cheesy action. When not muttering a cliche line, Sam is blowing apart hundreds of aliens that are hell-bent on his demise. Blood and body parts are frequent and generous in this game. Depending on the weapon used, enemies’ bodies and limbs will fly in different directions and get obliterated in different ways. Melee kills and new guns are fun additions to the game series, but there are a few glitches, too. Boss fights still amaze. The game has lived up to my expectations in most categories, and I think it’s a solid contribution to the series.
By Nick Hamden The easiest way to rustle my jimmies is to mess with the things I love. Similarly, one of the easiest ways to induce fear in a horror movie is to “scarify” a normally boring object. “Sinister” did just that with an evil pagan god that dwells inside pictures and film. The story is of an author who specializes in true crime novels, His plan is to make one last great book, so he can finally settle down with his family. However, his curiosity gets the best of him when he discovers a box labeled “Home Movies” in which is something far darker than he has ever imagined before. The first half of “Sinister” consists mainly of the author investigating the old films and freaking himself out in his new house, yet at the same time it was absolutely terrifying.
