Rising global population presents issues

By Le.Degraaf

State employees $1,200,000.00

Top 10 salaries for ISU employees Paul Rhoads, football coach Fred Hoiberg, men’s basketball coach BIll Fennelly, women’s basketball coach George Geoffroy, president Jamie Pollard, athletic director Elizabeth Hoffman, vice president and provost Tom Herman, football offensive coordinator Wally Burnham, football defensive coordinator Patrick Schnable, agronomy professor Labh Hira, dean for the College of Business




With the estimates that global population figures reached 7 billion on Monday, it is no wonder many citizens are concerned over the pace the Earth’s resources are being consumed. “Seven billion people is astonishing ... but we can’t support 7 billion people if we continue to use the world’s resources in the manner we are now,” said Colin Weaver, sophomore in global resource systems and nutritional science. Weaver, who was a Borlaug-Ruan intern to the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing, China, through the World Food Prize, believes it is an extremely complicated issue, but simplified it by stating, “As the population continues to grow, we must produce more food on less land with less water, which is a very tough feat.” The main issues associated with the increase in population, Weaver said, are urban sprawl, which in turn “decreases the amount of land otherwise used for the production of food,” food price increases, caused because the population is growing faster than the annual food supply, and shortages on water and energy resources, which has caused water tables across the globe to decrease drastically, leaving less water to grow crops.

When an apartment fire damaged the rooms of several ISU students last week, they were left wondering where they would be staying until things could be resolved. To several students, the owners of the building that was damaged, First Property Management, seemed to offer some help. Eric Doll, senior in landscape architecture who had to leave his apartment, received a call from the company the night of the fire. “They said they had a hotel lined up for me to stay in,” Doll said. “But then they never called me back. When I went to their office the next day to ask them about it, they told me it was a $48 a night hotel and that it was at my expense.” Doll, who thought that First Property would be covering the cost of his new arrangements, was not at all happy to hear this. Morgan Cacey, who lived in the apartment directly below the one that was most severely damaged, was out of town during the time of the fire. “I didn’t even know there was a fire until my roommate called me about it,” she said. She said she was never contacted by First Property Management about the incident, and when she called them to ask, they claimed that the fire was in a different building. Cacey also said First Property claimed to be putting people up in hotels and that “everything would be fine.” Cacey later received a picture message from her friend of the damage to the outside of their building. She said that First Property never called her again regarding the fire. Both Cacey and Doll have been staying with friends until they can arrange new leases in new apartments. Neither plan to return to First Property Management. “I wasn’t happy with how First Property had handled other things in the past, so this was like the last straw,” Cacey said.

Bieber denies fathering child with 20-year-old A 20-year-old woman has alleged in a paternity lawsuit that Justin Bieber, 17, is the father of her three-month-old baby boy, RadarOnline reported. The website claimed that the young woman, who reportedly resides in California, is demanding the teen superstar take a paternity test to “scientifically confirm” he’s the dad. The young woman claims that she slept with Bieber backstage at one of his Los Angeles concerts when she was 19. She’s reportedly asking the court to help her secure child support. Bieber’s team is vehemently denying these allegations, saying in a statement to CNN, “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”

Zooey Deschanel, husband Ben Gibbard split Two years after tying the knot, actress/singer Zooey Deschanel and musician Ben Gibbard are going their separate ways. A rep for Gibbard, frontman for the band Death Cab for Cutie, confirmed the split to CNN. An unnamed source told Us Weekly that the split was amicable and mutual and wasn’t caused by a third party. According to the Los Angeles Times, the pair met through a mutual manager three years ago (Zooey’s also in a band of her own, She & Him). The two wed near Seattle in 2009 after Gibbard proposed to Deschanel with a three-carat diamond and platinum ring, People magazine reports. Professionally, Deschanel is staying plenty busy: Her Fox show “New Girl” has been a success and was picked up for a full season earlier in the fall, and she just released her Christmas album, “A Very She & Him Christmas.” A source told People that “the intention is to move forward with divorce.”

ISU alumnus to speak about time in space By Cathryn.Kelzenberg Clayton Anderson, NASA astronaut and ISU alumnus, will be speaking Thursday evening in Howe Hall. He will be covering his time at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, highlighting his most recent space

voyage on the STS-131 and the future of the space program. Anderson is a native Anderson Ne b r a s k a n who attended graduate school at Iowa State. After graduating from

Iowa State in 1983 with a degree in aerospace engineering, Anderson then went on to work at the Johnson Space Center. After arriving at NASA, he had various positions associated with mission planning and operations. During this time, he led several design teams and in 1998 was pro-

moted to the position of mission specialist. Anderson’s first trip into space occurred in 2002, and since then he has logged 167 days in space. His longest trip was five months at the International Space Station, and in 2010 he worked aboard the STS-131. Anderson has performed six

space walks. His time working in space and the future of NASA will be the primary subjects of his lecture. Also this week, Iowa State will host several other events with Anderson. Before this Saturday’s football game, Anderson will be signing autographs in the ISU

Alumni Center and an ISU flag that he brought to space will be presented during that game. This lecture is sponsored by Aerospace Engineering, the Alumni Association, the College of Engineering and the Committee on Lectures (funded by GSB). The lecture will start at 5 p.m. in Howe Hall.

Power plant manager gives alternative fuel choices By Charles.O’Brien Jeff Mitt, the manager of the Iowa State Power Plant, presented to the Government of the Student Body on Wednesday about a new study the Power Plant has been performing and the plant’s future plans. The ISU Power Plant is a coalburning plant that contains five coal burning boilers. Three boilers run all the time and the fourth one runs occasionally; the fifth one, which is the oldest boiler, is

on standby. The plant generates 28,000 tons of ash per year, but the plant’s emissions fall 20 percent below its emission permit limit. One of the main purposes of the study is to find alternative forms of energy besides coal. Mitt presented five different options to comply with new regulations, which are coming into place. The first option was to keep the four newest boilers in the plant and convert the fifth boiler to a natural gas-burning boiler.

The second one is to keep the two newest coal boilers and have the three oldest boilers switch to natural gas. Currently, option two is the least expensive option with a price tag of $11 million. The third option is the same as the second option but instead of using natural gas, the three boilers would run on gas. Option four is to build a completely new plant, which would have only gas-burning boilers, and this option is the most expensive of the five with a price tag of $36 million.

The final option is to have a hodgepodge of different boilers: two coal boilers, a biomass boiler, a natural-gas boiler and a gas boiler. The most plausible option currently, Mitt said, is the third option because of its fuel flexibility. Overall, it is a cheaper option and it will work well in the long term, he said. Depending on which option is chosen, student utility costs will increase 9 percent to 24 percent annually. When asked why the university



Jury fails to reach verdict in case of infant’s death

Management and a member of the Ames Rental Association, said First Property handled the situation the best it could. Frisk said he offered to put students in hotels the first night, but a lot of them had different options. “From my end, we called everybody from the office and we offered up that first night,” Frisk said. He said he was offering the hotel rooms from his own pocket and insurance wouldn’t have paid for them. “We talked to people again the next day. It happened late. I didn’t know about the fire until about 7:30 p.m.,” Frisk said. “It

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The jury in the trial of a man accused of killing his infant son in Iowa City has gone home for the day without reaching a verdict.

The Gazette in Cedar Rapids said the Johnson County jury, which got the case Wednesday afternoon, will continue deliberations Thursday. Dykstra said Isaac fell down two stairs three

Sustainability Series, Frances Moore Lappe will discuss these global topics covered in her latest book, “EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think to Create the World We Want,” at 8 p.m. Thursday in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. In a statement to Small Planet about the topics of her new book, Lappe said, “Solutions to global crises are within reach. Our challenge is to free ourselves from self-defeating thought traps so we can bring these solutions to life.” Her book presents the argument that the way people view environmental challenges such as global hunger create, what she calls, “thought traps.” “EcoMind” presents the steps individuals need to escape this trap. “Population pressure lurks behind most, if not all, environmental problems,” said William Gutowski, professor of meteorology. Gutowski believes the increasing global population

largely impacts his research on climate change. “If we don’t deal with it and think about what is happening, we may suffer the consequences or our children might suffer the consequences of not having confronted the issue directly,” he said. In his view, the main means of solving the issue of drastic population increase is through the education of women. “Experience has shown that giving women control over their lives and education plays a major role in reducing population growth,” Gutowski said. But he also hopes the average American can recognize how much of the world’s resources they are consuming. “The more efficient we are with our resources, the more it can allow the rest of the world to achieve a better quality of life,” Gutowski said. “There is a clear global impact of increasing population.” Weaver also agreed that educating women and men about family planning would lead to less environmental problems. “Better family-planning practices, education and pos-

Several African nations have average fertility rates as high as seven children born per woman, which is insanely high and contributing greatly to the world’s rapidly growing population,” Weaver said. Overall, Weaver believes, “the world needs to embrace agricultural technology. The only way we will be able to produce more food on less land with less water is through research and new technology. A lot of this research is being conducted here at Iowa State University.” Lappe is also the author of the 1971 book “Diet for a Small Planet,” which has sold more than 3 million copies. She has now written 18 books and is the co-founder of three organizations. In 2008, Lappe received the James Beard Foundation “Humanitarian of the Year” Award for her lifelong impact on the way people think about food, nutrition and agriculture, and in 2007 she became a founding member of the World Future Council, based in Hamburg, Germany.

doesn’t simply replace the current boilers with new coal boilers, Mitt said, “Capital costs for replacing the boilers with new coal boilers is an astronomical cost. “We need to ask ourselves these questions: ‘How much should we spend on equipment that we have right now,’ ‘How much coal do we want to consume,’ ‘How much fuel price risk are we willing to tolerate,’ and ‘How much tolerance do we have for utility cost increases because the cost of the project will impact the students directly?’”

Worries about population have merit Seven billion people, give or take, now inhabit this world. With the world’s population taking off, adding another billion people since we were in elementary or middle school in 1999, we —by which we mean everyone — should pay some attention to potential problems of allocating the resources needed to live. These resources include the basics of food, water and shelter, all of which must be shared among 7 billion people, billions of whom live in poverty. Overpopulation has always been a concern held by intellectuals; some historians speculate that the Roman Empire’s inundation with Germanic tribes containing alien customs led to its demise. In the late 18th century and early 19th century, Englishman Thomas Malthus theorized that population growth would need to be checked, perhaps even by active measures, as the means of subsistence increased. Closer to our own time, some politicians believe that an influx of immigrants from Mexico and Central America, or from Islamic countries, could endanger our political system and the ability of quintessentially American middle-class families to retain their socioeconomic status. And there is a limit to the resources our planet can produce and that we can cultivate. Weather is only so predictable, and with increased volatility it becomes even less so. Until we can all find and regularly utilize agricultural methods in a sustainable as well as productive way, the specter of overpopulation will continue to haunt us. Slash-and-burn agriculture only works when land is abundant. In a world where 7 billion people need space to live and die, land for cultivation decreases. We cannot afford to ignore the effects of our policies on the land’s ability to keep producing and meeting our needs. Enter colleges like Iowa State. Originally a school for agriculture, ours is one that still has a strong agricultural focus. If we want to maintain our fame as a good school whose students go out and find solutions to real problems, we should continue our experiments and maybe even increase their rigor and the ingenuity with which they are approached. Since our school has a long tradition of finding new agricultural methods and our students are often a prime example of what this newspaper’s adviser regularly calls “Iowa nice,” we have an obligation to help those in need once our own needs have been fulfilled. In a time when funding issues and more competition present almost an identity crisis, Iowa State should remember to continue its focus on what it was designed to do — agricultural solutions.

File photo: Iowa State Daily An audience stands in the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines at the Regents Day Political Rally last June. At the event, Sen. Shawn Hamerlinck told student representatives from the three state institutions to go home, just one example of college students not being taken seriously.

Students’ opinions matter We must make effort to express ourselves


hy are we not taken seriously? Why, as college students, does no one listen to our opinion? I don’t understand it. It seems as though everyone, from parents to government officials, seem to be content to pat us on the head and send us on our way, as though we are 5-year-olds trying to voice an opinion on organic chemistry. Take, for example, the dismissal given by state Sen. Shawn Hamerlinck to student leaders from the three state institutions last June, telling students to “go home.” Or the companion comments given by both him and state Sen. Steve Kettering, which both alluded to the students being “paraded” in front of the Iowa Senate as though they were puppets, discrediting on principle anything the students said. Why? In an argument with my mother, she said I’d understand once I got “into the real world.” That is especially insulting. We, as college students, often work one or two jobs to cover bills, rent, gas and other expenses. Though it may not be a full-time, 9-to-5 job, if you’re working

By Craig.Long 25 hours per week and have 15 credits, that’s equivalent to the 40 hours full-time employees work. That’s not counting all the outside time we’re expected to put in (for 15 credits, the recommended amount would be 30 to 45 additional hours/week). We put in more hours with a more diverse set of requirements than most people do in the working world. People who automatically discount our views seem to think that because we are still in the education system, we don’t possess the knowledge to form a valid opinion. But when you think about it logically, we college students are as educated, if not more, than most people in the United States. According to statistics from the Census Bureau, only 55 percent of Americans age 25 or better have had some college or better. Only 30 percent have attained an associate’s degree (two years

of study), a bachelor’s degree or better. Although we may not be as long in the tooth as the majority of the general public simply by completing a semester at college, we’ve had more education than 45 percent of America. While those who went from high school directly into the working world have had more experience in the “real world,” that doesn’t mean those experiences are more valid when it comes to public issues. Most of those experiences, while they have directly and drastically impacted these individuals’ lives, don’t look at the big picture. They are limited experiences, controlled to a specific set of circumstances, that may not hold true when applied to major public issues. The specific economics of a household are entirely different from the economics of the public. If you apply household economics to the economy, the decisions you make could turn out to be disastrous. Perhaps most college students don’t have kids yet or have to make decisions on health care, but we still work hard to educate ourselves and prepare ourselves to make decisions in the working world. For example, we can look ahead at our life plans and see that

the amount of debt we face could be crippling; simply because we haven’t started paying it with a “real” job doesn’t mean we can’t form an opinion on the subject. I’m not trying to say that only those with some college experience should be allowed to speak on public issues. The way our system is designed, high school gives more than enough education to be informed enough to form valid opinions. Everyone has every right to voice opinions on subject that will affect them as well, regardless of their educational level. Ultimately, we must help ourselves. We’re a group of people who are (fairly or not) branded as being more concerned with “Jersey Shore” and drinking and that taints elders’ views of us and our knowledge. To make our voice heard and our opinion count, we must start by making an effort to keep up to date on current events and express our opinions in a responsible, informed way. If we do that, we’ll finally see what we have to say taken seriously, to everyone’s benefit.

Craig Long is a senior in political science from Essex, Iowa.


Cross-country deserves respect


hen I picked up my copy of the Daily on Monday, it bought a smile to my face as I read the article on the Cyclone football victory Saturday. I have been an avid football fan my entire life and after years of highs and lows, I certainly recognize the significance of such a victory over a top 25 team. However, I was disappointed to see the women’s cross-country team’s Big 12 Conference victory with only a small picture on the front page and the main story tucked away in the sports section. I have been informed that front-page stories are determined by story quality and its appeal to readers, which, at a newspaper, makes sense. Granted the cross-country team got its coverage Wednesday, but it still is a testament to the lack of interest we as students are showing our team. I think, though, the idea that it was determined that the football team’s win was a more appealing story for ISU students than the cross-country championship is the problem at hand. The football win is excellent and I would congratulate the team on its hard work. But I think we really need to take into consideration the scale of accomplishment demonstrated by both teams. When was the last time the football team won a Big 12 Championship? Well, Iowa State football’s closest claim to a title was a Big 12 North co-championship in 2004 and co-champions in 1911 and 1912 while in the Big Eight. So that would be, never? Believe me, the minute the football team wins a Big 12 Championship I will be cheering my heart out, but we need to give credit when and where it is due. The cross-country team won its first Big 12 Championship this weekend. That is a championship, meaning we, Iowa State University, are the best in the conference. Shouldn’t we recognize this great achievement? Cross-country doesn’t get the glamour of football and basketball and I doubt most people could tell you the name of a single runner, but the fact that even a Big 12 Championship is overshadowed by a single football win is just disappointing.

By Jessica.Bruning Now, maybe a small portion of my resentment stems from the trauma that is high school. I ran cross-country and I can promise you the athletes in the sport don’t get much love. Now, granted, I wasn’t particularly good, but it was still disappointing when they scheduled the powderpuff football game during our home meet during homecoming week, and it was still hurtful when the football players would mock us for having an hour-long practice despite the fact that we had run six miles plus sprints. The main problem I have is the inequality

different athletes receive. Everyone is entitled to their preferences to sports that they like to watch, but each athlete deserves the same respect for excelling in their field. The crosscountry runner competing at a Division I level is more than likely putting in the same amount of effort as any football player and when that effort pays off in such a big way, it should be recognized. This week, that credit goes to the crosscountry team. As my cross-country coach once told me, “You have all of the guts, and none of the glory.” I’m sorry that it’s only a small opinion column tucked away in the pages of the Daily and a few days late, but congratulations, ladies. It’s an amazing achievement.

Money acts as new voice in American government Koch brothers help lead charge to totalitarianism


wouldn’t call myself a Democrat or a Republican and you won’t see me occupy anything or have a tea party. With the modern trends, I think both parties should be equally upset; we’re a republic after all, but we’re being run by totalitarianism. Totalitarianism is the condition where everyone thinks, acts and behaves the same. Our particular variety of totalitarianism is the fault of all of us, but some share more of the blame than others. Individuals such as George Soros, the Koch brothers and Rupert Murdoch bear the brunt of the blame. They fund, campaign and advertise their private ideologies, influencing public policy. It’s done primarily by individuals such as the Koch brothers, those who can afford the campaigns, but anytime you engage private issues in the public you’re a guilty party. I focus on the Koch brothers not because of their ideology, but because they provide the best example. Like most Republicans, they argue for deregulation of the economy because businesses create jobs and it’s in the public interest. Since they had accumulated more than $5 billion in 1999, their wealth has grown by more than 800 percent. In 2007, the brothers jointly owned $34 billion and Koch Industries employed 80,000 people. But as their wealth grew to $50 billion today, the employment of Koch Industries diminished to 67,000 employees. While their wealth has increased 36 percent, they’ve laid off 16 percent of their workforce.

By Ryan.Peterson They aren’t the only ones. ExxonMobil had 83,700 workers in 2005, but they currently employ 79,900. While their wealth has increased by 20 percent, they’ve laid off 5 percent of their work force. Exxon is the second-largest company in America; Koch Industries is the 57th, but the second-largest privately owned. They make $100 billion in revenue per year. With this mass of wealth, the brothers have spent $40 million in the 2010 Senate elections, and they hope to raise and spend $200 million for the 2012 presidential election, all for public interest. With their money, they’ve founded a multitude of organizations. One of those is Americans for Prosperity, formally known as Citizens for a Second Economy, a 501(c)(4) founded by the Koch brothers in 1984. The group received $5 million between 1984 and 1990 alone. Now Americans for Prosperity serves as the primary organizer for the tea party. During 2009, the national summit leaders of AOP boasted their support for the tea party and bragged about having 33 state chapters with an estimated 2 million members. When asked whose interests AOP were pursing, the president of Americans for Prosperity, Tim Philips, responded, “The interests of any American who wants economic prosperity and freedom.” Their mis-

Scott Walker in Wisconsin and provided $500,000 for the anti-union campaigns this summer. The Koch brothers have founded organizations such as American Legislative Exchange Council. The council brings lobbyists and legislators together three times a year to draft model bills, and for the past 20 years, Koch Industries has been on its corporate board. In 1994, Charles

Koch was awarded the Adam Smith Award by ALEC for donations exceeding $1 million to the institute. Even though these meetings are held privately, we know some of their issues have included: Warming Up to Climate Change, Start Energy Independence Today, and Health Insurance Exchanges. Many individuals suspect the Koch brothers of skewing politics toward private interests. Kert Davis is one of them as the president of research for Green Peace, and he asserts that, “Since 1998 we tracked over $50 million that they have sent to front groups and think tanks that have run a campaign against global warming and global warming science.” Davis also asserts that the brothers have spent upwards of $50 million on lobbyists since 2006. The Koch brothers also fund think tanks such as The Cato Institute, co-founded by Charles Koch in 1977, and since its foundation it has received $14 million from

the brothers. The Cato Institute’s main page has links on: “Let’s Prize Climate Skepticism,” “Abolish Central Banks” and “How Much Ivory Does This Tower Need? What We Spend On, and Get from, Higher Education.” The voice of the people and the integrity of the republic grows quiet under the voice of private interests in political affairs, especially when they have billions to spend. Whether you consider yourself a Republican or a Democrat, no matter what your ideology, it’s your voice that matters. And yet, more than $2 billion a year are spent on lobbying and billions will go to campaigns for 2012. Money is the new voice of America, and we’re being convinced to think, act and behave in accordance with that.

Iowa State responsible for finding smokers a new place to gather I have a stair problem. Specifically, the flight of stairs leading up from Lincoln Way to the Friley Hall arches. Perhaps I’m wrong in this, but I think of those stairs as stairs: a series of steps or flights of steps for passing from one level to another. They are quite useful in this function. Unfortunately, smokers seem to think of these stairs as a their own personal lounging area; maybe it has something to do with nicotine, I’m not really sure. Smoking being the social activity that it is, smokers tend to accumulate. When that happens, my stairs become their stairs. Let me tell you something about my stairs: I really like using them. However, after a good 10 seconds or so of solid stair interaction, I leave the stairs open for others to enjoy. Ain’t I such a great guy? Not the smokers, though. They keep using the stairs. For tens upon tens of minutes. Now this wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that the body of a smoker, much like the body of anyone I suppose, is an obstacle. An obstacle that has the potential to entirely ruin the functionality of a good set of stairs.

Andrew Koehring is a

graduate student in human computer interaction and mechanical engineering. Recently, I had an encounter with the smokers to express my concerns. Let’s just say it was not a polite one, nor did it receive a polite response. Yes. I could have excused myself and picked a delicate path through the crowd, but I’m a crotchety old grad student who’s been suffering this annoyance for some time; things have progressed well beyond my politeness threshold. These kids were under the impression that the world would quite literally go out of its way to accommodate them. I could try encouraging others to be equally confrontational, but we’d always be back to square one with every new class of incoming freshmen. I could try punting them one by one into the street. Really, I’m kind of a big guy and young smokers are notoriously thin. Problem there is that I might not always get favorable winds. So if violence isn’t the answer, what else is there?

Of course — segregation! We need to provide a separate but equal space for stationary people because I don’t want them diminishing the purity of my mobile race. Used to be that there was an entire campus-sized space for people to sit and smoke. We all had plenty of lebensraum and life was good. But now, because a few people were extremely loud about being exposed to a few parts per million of cigarette smoke (turns out the vehicle exhaust on campus is made of vitamin C and hugs), the poor smoker has been pushed out to the very borders of our territory. So, allow me to advocate for them. They’re humans

too. You just have to look past the longboards and girl jeans. Underneath is an irregularly beating heart, very similar to your own. All they want is a place to sit and enjoy a legal smoke. All I want is for them to have that place so long as it’s not directly in the path of a commonly used walkway. A few benches, that’s it. So, does anybody out there have it in them to fix this issue? GSB? Graduating class gift? If the university doesn’t want these people on its land, it should be on the hook for providing them a place to go. Is money the problem, Iowa State? Well, let’s think about this. Left unresolved, I will likely continue harassing

people blocking these stairs. Tempers will escalate until the day when it’s finally me versus them in a no-holds-barred street brawl. Diminished lung capacity notwithstanding, I can probably only take a few of them until I am overrun. When I stumble into student health with cigarette burns, broken ribs and a dislocated jaw, who’s gonna cover the cost of fixing me up? Since I’m enrolled in a university

health plan, that bill comes back to Iowa State in one way or another. See? Prevention is the best medicine. So there you go, smokers. I’m trying to help us both. Until the campus community arranges for your own personal Zion, I would still very much appreciate it if you would keep the way clear for its intended purpose: walking up and down. Otherwise, well ... you already know I have no trouble stepping on you.

Moreno makes sacrifices



Iowa State Daily

13th-ranked Iowa State takes down Oklahoma By Dean Berhow-Goll Daily Staff Writer The ISU volleyball team defeated the Sooners in four sets in Norman, Okla, on Wednesday. (25-18, 23-25, 25-21, 25-21) Leading the No. 13 Cyclones (18-4, 9-2 Big 12) against No. 25 Oklahoma (19-7, 6-4) on the offensive end was senior Carly Jenson. Jenson tallied 25 kills, which was just one short of her career high. Two other Cyclones were in double-digit kills, with Jamie Straube having 16 and Kelsey Petersen adding 12. Sophomore Tenisha Matlock added eight kills and freshman Victoria Hurtt came off the bench to add nine. The Cyclones hit .292 as a team, which is above their season average, and held the Sooners to a .210 hitting percentage. On the defensive end, Jenson, Matlock and Straube all had three block assists. Kristen Hahn led Iowa State with 24 digs and Alison Landwehr had 64 assists, which is above her season average of 11 per set. This win improves the Cyclones to 18-4 and 9-2 in the conference. Iowa State is currently in second place in the Big 12 Conference, only behind No. 9 Texas. Iowa State’s next match is set for 4 p.m. Saturday against Texas Tech at Hilton Coliseum.

Freshman prepares for collegiate match By Alex.Halsted For all his life, Michael Moreno has dreamed of wrestling at the collegiate level. In 1992, Moreno’s father Mike, a 134-pounder at Iowa State, added his name to a long list of ISU AllAmerican wrestlers. Nearly two decades later, his son, now a redshirt freshman, is ready to take the mat for the first time as a Cyclone. Last season, Moreno was redshirted along with other highly touted ISU recruits Kyven Gadson and Ryak Finch. Being held out of official competition that year helped Moreno learn coach Kevin Jackson’s system. “The redshirt year was pretty rewarding,” Moreno said. “It was nice to get a look at the inner workings of a college program, especially one of this caliber.” A native of Urbandale, Iowa, Moreno is a four-time placewinner in the annual state tournament, including a 43-0 record and a state title as a senior. Moreno was ranked by Intermat as the 22nd best wrestler in the class of 2010. While Moreno was redshirted last season, he did have the chance to compete, wrestling unattached in tournaments including the Cyclone Open, the Kaufman-Brand Open and the Midlands Championships. In those matches, Moreno wrestled at 165 pounds. When the team travels to Boston on Sunday to complete against both Army and Boston, Moreno will be in the lineup as a 157-pounder. Jackson said Moreno, out of all underclassmen, showed him the most in the offseason and has adapted well to being at 157 pounds. “He wrestled at 165 for us last year

technique is looking great, and I can’t wait to see him get on the mat.” After many years of waiting, Moreno will now follow in his father’s footsteps to the mat in his first colle-

giate match on Sunday. “It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been dreaming about this for the past 20 years,” Moreno said. “It’s finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited.”

Epstein looks for new Cubs manager

CHICAGO — Theo Epstein is looking for a new manager to lead the Chicago Cubs. In his first major on-field move since becoming the team’s president of baseball operations, Epstein fired Cubs manager Mike Quade on Wednesday and began the search for his replacement. The move came one day after the club introduced new general manager Jed Hoyer and scouting/player development head Jason McLeod. Epstein, who joined the Cubs a little more than a week ago, quickly laid out the qualifications he has in mind for the team’s next manager. One of those is managerial and/or coaching experience in the major leagues, which would eliminate a popular fan choice in Cubs Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg. “The next manager must have leadership and communication skills; he must place an emphasis on preparation and accountability; he must establish high standards and a winning culture; he must have integrity and an open mind,” Epstein said. The Associated Press

and came a match away from placing at the Midlands,” Jackson said. “By just his commitment to getting his weight under control, he’s Moreno become a natural 157-pounder.” The move down to a lower weight class took an offseason of work. Moreno said he ran between 12 and 15 miles each week starting in late July to work on reducing his weight. Jackson said he feels Moreno’s commitment will help make the team better. “It’s never a surprise [to see] who performs at a high level,” Jackson said. “You can see it every day in practice and I’m seeing that out of him everyday.” For Moreno, the year in the wrestling room helped him build a closer bond with his teammates. He also credits the redshirt year with helping him take the next step forward to competing this season. “The year in the room gave me the college wrestler’s peace of mind,” Moreno said. “It’s not the same game [as high school]. A year in this room made me into a college wrestler.” Senior and team captain Andrew Sorenson said young wrestlers like Gadson, Finch and Moreno have all been proactive in jumping into the heat of competition in practice. “They’re not afraid to step up,” Sorenson said. “Just because they’re underclassmen, they don’t feel like they have to sit in the back seat and wait for their turn.” Sorenson, who is Moreno’s roommate, said Moreno has made the sacrifices to help make the lineup stronger this season and he’s excited for him to finally get on the mat. “[He] has made a commitment to go down to 157, and he’s been with that commitment since July,” Sorenson said. “His weight is looking great, his

File photo: Zhenru Zhang/ Iowa State Daily Outside hitter Carly Jenson spikes the ball over Oklahoma opposition Oct. 8. Jenson has taken on a leadership role and become the Cyclones’ go-to player her senior year after playing sparingly in her first two seasons.

Carly Jenson’s career at Iowa State has been quite a journey. In her freshman and sophomore tenures, Jenson saw little playing time. Now, after stepping in and starting for an injured teammate her junior year, she’s transformed into a leader for the Cyclones and become their go-to player on offense this year. In last year’s first match, against Florida at the Runza Showcase, outside hitter Rachel Hockaday, a Preseason All-Big 12 pick, went down with a seasonending ACL tear. “I’ve never seen [Rachel] in pain like that,”

Jenson said. “I felt like I was ready to play because I played here and there my freshman and sophomore year, but that wasn’t the way I wanted to start my career.” Jenson made the most of her opportunity. That season she finished second on the team in kills behind All-American Victoria Henson with 3.04 kills per set, which was good for ninth in the Big 12. Jenson also led the team in aces and had 12 double-doubles. “Some players get the opportunity and they’re not ready. Carly was ready,” said coach Christy Johnson-Lynch. “She took the most advantage of it that she could. It was re-

ally inspirational to see her come in against Florida and to really right away put up huge numbers for us game after game.” Jenson currently is averaging 3.76 kills per set, good for fifth in the Big 12. She’s also second in the conference in service aces and is third in total points. “She’s a grinder. You know that she’s going to keep going and stay aggressive,” Johnson-Lynch said. “Even if she starts out struggling in a match, you know at some point she’s going to get going. Carly will just keep grinding away.” When Jenson was asked about what type of a leader she is, she said she leads by example. Johnson-

Lynch believes the exact same thing. “Definitely by example,” Johnson-Lynch said. “Some leaders are vocal, and some leaders lead by example. She’s a leader with her example. She’s one of our hardest workers, she’s very clutch, she handles pressure well and she’s probably one of our most consistent players.”

Ultimate ‘stays chilly’ By Stephen.Koenigsfeld

Coming off the No Wisconsequences tournament on Oct. 15th and 16th in Milwaukee, Wis., the Iowa State Ultimate Club is looking forward to the highly anticipated tournament Missouri Loves Company. “MLC is the first tournament this year where we’re actually going to bring our A-team and see where we stand,” said Chris Sabotta, senior in computer engineering. Sabotta mentioned he and the rest of the team are excited to see how well they fare in their first tournament where they enter as a varsity-like team. The club is funded partially through the GSB because it is part of the Student Club Council. In 2010, the Iowa State Ultimate Club received 25 percent of its

funds through GSB and obtained the rest of its money through team dues and fundraising, such as sweeping Hilton Coliseum after basketball games. The team doesn’t have to travel far to play against tough competition. “The Midwest hosts some of the best teams in the nation including the University of Wisconsin, Carleton College and the University of Iowa,” Calhoun said. In the spring, the weather can be anywhere from 70 degrees and sunny to 50 degrees and rainy. These elements don’t hinder many Midwest teams like the Iowa State Ultimate Club. “The Midwest is one of the most powerful regions,” Sabotta said. “And you can make an argument for that [because] it tends to be a lot windier here ... it’s hard to throw a disc in those condi-

tions, so you get teams that are naturally tuned.” Senior Zach Kasdan agreed with Sabotta’s statement about how climate plays such an important role in Ultimate Frisbee. “East and West [coasts] are a lot stronger just because they have the advantage of being able to play outside a lot longer,” Kasdan said. “The Midwest actually has some sort of advantages because we’re used to playing in bad weather, that when high winds situations or when rain pops up, it doesn’t faze us as much.”

Some people may think Shakespeare is outdated or difficult to understand. But ISU Theatre’s “Love’s Labor’s Lost” is attempting to prove them wrong. This version, adapted by director Matt Foss, adds a modern twist to Shakespeare’s classic comedy. Beside the audience is a projected image of a forest line that changes seasons as the play goes on. Upon entering the theater, viewers are immediately surrounded by the set and become a part of the production. “[The projection] makes the possibilities of the set infinite,” said Ben

The set itself allows room for imagination. There are minimal set pieces, such as white curtains and marker boards, and their uses add to the humor of the show. Foss said he took Shakespeare’s idea of “using what was modern within his time” and placing it into his plays. Adaptations go farther than set alone. The acting and dialogue also have a more modern approach. The actors attempt to draw the audience in by moving through the house doors and in the aisles. “We cut out a lot of the Old English word play that’s outdated,” said Heather Smith, senior in performing arts who plays Rosaline. “You will see

the actors’ backs, which is different from a more traditional or conventional style.” Smith also said the costumes have a more modern approach and are a “mix of different eras.” The cast agreed the show is something anyone, with Shakespeare knowledge or not, can enjoy and understand with its combination of songs, dance and comedy. “If you go in with an open mind, then you will understand more than you would expect,” Smith said. “[Shakespeare] shows have so much depth to them,” said Colin Morgan, senior in music who plays Berowne. “It’s really accessible to everyone.”

Emily Bright By Abby Varn Ames247 Writer Emily Bright, senior in child, adult and family services, has been the marching band’s baton twirler for five years. As her final home football game approaches, Bright reflected on her time twirling at Iowa State.

Q: How did you first get involved with baton twirling? A: It’s a long story. My brother was in Boy Scouts, and my mom made friends with another mom whose daughter twirled. My sister started twirling first, so then I started twirling and I have been doing it for 16, 17 years now.

Q: Did you anticipate twirling becoming such a big part of your life? A: I don’t think so. I just did it because it was fun and things progressed. When I was in middle school and high school, it was my life. I’m happy where it’s gotten me today.

Q: Do you have a favorite memory that sticks out in your mind? A: Oh, my gosh. I think my first year, my first game. I don’t remember my first game because I was so nervous. But

re kespea a h S m a i ss By W ill M att Fo y b d e t Adap

I think every game, because we just have so much fun. Everything’s been so great, I almost can’t even think of one experience.

Q: What are your future plans regarding twirling? A: After graduation, I would love to continue twirling. I don’t know how much twirling I personally would do, but I do some private lessons now, so I would love to start a studio maybe someday.

Q: How does it feel to be done here at Iowa State? A: It’s very bittersweet. It’s been an amazing five years. But I know it’s time to move on and let new twirlers come in. It’s life and you just have to take the last few years, because they’ve been awesome.
