Cyclones fall short to Cincinnati

ALDI opens new Ames location

By Ryan.Young It wasn’t unfamiliar territory for the Cyclones. Last Sunday in the AdvoCare Invitational championship game, coach Steve Prohm and the Cyclones went right down to the wire with No. 8 Gonzaga, eventually falling to the Bulldogs 73-71. On Thursday, it was a very similar outing. No. 19 Iowa State (5-2, 0-0 Big 12) went down to the wire with a physical Cincinnati (6-1, 0-0 American), and fell 55-54 in overtime at Hilton Coliseum on Thursday night.

By Emily.Hammer ALDI, a popular discount supermarket chain, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and official grand opening Thursday morning for its new Ames store on South 5th Street, replacing its previous location on Buckeye Avenue. In celebration of the new location, the first 100 customers in line were given a golden ticket, each with ALDI gift certificates of varying values. Participants also received a free ALDI eco-friendly bag until supplies ran out. Customers were then able to tour the store and had the choice to enter a sweepstakes to win free ALDI produce for a year. “We wanted to offer our loyal Ames customers a fresh experience at the new location,”Miranda Coello, assistant account director, said. “We are excited to share the unique ALDI shopping experience with customers in Ames.” The new Ames location focuses on giving customers a revamped experience, with a larger square footage, higher ceilings and more natural lighting. The store also increased the size of its cooler section and added healthy tips in the produce area to help consumers make smart choices. The location for the store was chosen based on population density, proximity to competition, cost of the property and traffic patterns. ALDI’s goal is to be conveniently located for its shoppers. ALDI also used environmentally-friendly building materials to further emphasize its commitment to reducing its environmental impact. These include energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting. ALDI, a grocery chain that originated in Germany, believes its brand of products has the highest quality and offers healthy choices and well-balanced foods. Shoppers of ALDI brands are also purported to save massive amounts of money compared to shoppers at other chain grocery stores. “ALDI-exclusive brands can save [smart shoppers] up to 50 percent on their grocery bills,” Coello said. Her information comes from a price comparison of comparable products sold at leading national grocery stores. For students and Ames citizens on a limited budget, having access to a grocery store with much lower costs than normal could provide much needed help with savings. Coello described ALDI shoppers as smart shoppers, and that students are included in that. Along with the new location comes an even larger range of groceries to choose from, including organic produce and glutenfree products. Its meats are also free from animal by-products, antibiotics, added hormones and steroids, Coello said. “Great-quality groceries and everyday low prices make for a combination that shoppers love,” Coello said.

P&S Council talks new building By Morgan.Miller The professional and scientific council met Thursday night to cover the agenda for the remaining half of the year. Some of the goals discussed at the meeting consisted of new designs for buildings on campus, making transitions for new students easier, and the fight against hate crimes. Provost Dr. Jonathan Wickert presented a new building that will be popping up behind Marston hall right next to the water tower and it will provide all majors with classes. The goal of the building is to create a more collaborative environment for students from different majors to share ideas on projects. The building will be all glass to give it a very modern look and the hallways will consist of whiteboards that students can write on. There are a lot of energy saving features to this building and it will consist of a lot of natural light. “This building will be built for collaboration among students of different majors” said Wickert. Another topic that was brought up by Wickert was the rough transition that new students go through when entering Iowa State. The first year that students are here

they receive an average of 400 emails about information on Iowa State and activities on the campus. Iowa State Student Affairs will start developing tactics for different types of new students to have a more comfortable transition into Iowa state. Dr. Jonathan Strum, the Faculty Senate President, brought up a no tolerance program being brought to Iowa State that stands against racism and sexism on cam-

pus. This program will hold the University to a new standard of equality. He also addressed the new tuition difference for upperclassman and underclassman and brought up that the student government still needs to discuss it more. Iowa State Police Officer Nick Grossman presented the council with the new Multicultural Liason Officer program that they have adopted. This program will work to provide a safe environment and open communication with the police and student body. The MLO officers are given training for any acts of implicit bias on campus and will get involved with different multicultural organizations at Iowa State. Some of the projects that will take part involve community building events and classes on hate crimes to inform students about what is a hate crime and what isn’t. The goal is to develop a larger program for Multicultural Liason Officers on the force. “Other schools police forces have been using this program and it seems to be working”, Said Grossman. The meeting brought up many goals for the next semester and hopes the future of Iowa State. With a fast developing campus, Iowa State continues to come up with more ideas to make life more comfortable for the students and faculty.

ISU accused of thwarting pro-Trump event By Alex.Connor ISU Students 4 Trump, an unofficial student organization supporting President-elect Donald Trump, is accusing Iowa State of trying to cancel a pro-Trump event and is asking supporters to push back at the university for charging $2,000 in security fees. The group, in an email release to those planning to attend an event with Milo Yiannopoulos on Friday, asked that they “tweet, message, share, and email” Iowa State and the Iowa State Police Department, “criticizing them for their actions.” ISU Students 4 Trump said it wants as much backlash as possible. The controversy comes after the university told organizers that security measures are required by Iowa State, which could cost the Trump group almost $1,944. In an article on the Yiannopoulos event by Breitbart titled “Iowa State University Attempts To Censor MILO Event With Security Fee Hike,” the “student organizer” for the event told the right-wing news source that he “had paid in full

ISU Students 4 Trump is trying to bring Milo Yiannopoulos, above, to campus for an event.

Sept. 7 an amount of $1,070 out of my own pocket, which including the rental space, lighting, AV, tech, and the whole shabang.” The student organizer, who was left unnamed in the Breitbart article, said that “just yesterday, the event manager at ISU said ISU PD is requiring six officers to

secure the rental space which will cost additional but did not say the amount. Today, the event manager sent out an email saying it will require an additional $1944.” “As far as I can tell, no liberal events even required additional security let alone any at all,” the organizer told Breitbart. “There is rarely

any conservatives events that are held so its pretty obvious they are trying to cancel this event.” In response to this, ISU 4 Trump set up a GoFundMe page to help raise an additional $500 for the event. The GoFundMe page, which met its $500 goal, has since been removed. Seth Dohrn, an event coordinator at the Memorial Union, told the Iowa State Daily on Wednesday that since the group is not an officially recognized student organization, it must adhere to rules set up for outside groups. He also said a “rider” attached to an agreement to bring Yiannopoulos to campus includes specific security requirements, and a threat assessment from Iowa State also adds to the security requirement. The policies and guidelines for the Memorial Union, where the event is intended to take place, states that non-university groups, which includes ISU Students 4 Trump, are charged the full room rental. The guidelines also state that “the group scheduling MU facilities will be financially responsible for any charges or fees resulting from

the meeting, event or activity.” The MU general guidelines also state that: The Memorial Union reserves the right to cancel or suspend any event, when it is determined that an unreasonable risk to the security and/or safety of the facility and/or its patrons exists. Organizations sponsoring events are responsible for adequate supervision of their activities, and for the conduct of all individuals associated with the event in and around their events/ activities. The Memorial Union reserves the right to refuse space to any group or individual. MU Event Management reserves the right to assign and, if necessary, re-assign facilities to assure the maximum and most appropriate utilization of MU space. The Memorial Union reserves the right to change policies without notice and grant exceptions upon appeal. A statement posted online from Iowa State on Thursday morning said the university does not support or condone Yiannopoulos’ message or tactics, but the Memorial Union has long been a venue

GOOD GIRLS REVOLT Author discusses sex discrimination

Fighting for women’s rights By Emma.Hovick In a very male-dominated world, Lynn Povich, award-winning journalist and pioneer for women’s equality in the workplace, fights for women’s rights and educates thoroughly on what has changed for women and what hasn’t. Povich came to campus on Thursday to discuss the issues she has faced as a female journalist throughout her career. She also touched on the importance of educating people on such matters, which are all found in her book, “The Good Girls Revolt.” Tara Efobi, senior in apparel, merchandising and design, attended the lecture with friends. “Even though we’ve made a lot of progress, we’re still far from done,” Efobi said.“That seems to be lost between the generation of hers to ours.” Povich touched base on women’s rights in a political standpoint. Women will make up 21 percent of congress next year, and in corporate sweep, the numbers are about 17 to 19 percent. “What’s discouraging is it’s been 17-19 to 20-21 percent for the past 10 years,” Povich said. Povich then went on to speak about women in the workforce. When a man works overtime, no one thinks he is a bad father. When a women works overtime, people wonder what type of mother she is. Povich said only 4.8 percent of the fortune 500 CEOs are women, they comprise only 17 percent in the 200 largest law firms and make up 27 percent of federal and state judges and only 28 percent of full professors. “We read about sexual harassment, whether it’s in the media, whether it’s in the military, whether it’s in the presidential campaign,” Povich said. “We read about hostile work places on Wall Street, Silicon Valley. “We read about the pay gaps women are making 78 to 89 percent or less for women of color. We read about pregnancy discrimination. And on social media, we see the kind of angry misogynistic attack of threats on women who post including on women journalists.” Povich ended the lecture by saying how this generation didn’t have the benefit of the Civil Rights Movement that focused on inequality. She said it didn’t have the antiwar movement that questioned

authority on why we were in Vietnam and it didn’t have the women’s movement that supported so many of us to challenge the assumptions about women’s roles in society that gave Povich’s generation a template for organizing and protesting. “Those of us who have children, who encouraged our children that they could do anything and be anything ... it got somehow distorted into saying you can have it all and that somehow if you don’t do it all, you fail, but that was never the message of feminism,” Povich said.

“That was the message of Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmo Magazine, who told women they could have it all.” The lecture had a turnout of about 400 to 500 people. After the lecture took place, a book signing followed, where people could get their books signed by Povich. The event was the Mary Louise Smith Chair in Women and Politics, which is hosted by the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics.

A. They really liked it. B. They knew they could do it. C. They could make it a career. And for these reasons, among many, many others, 46 women who served as researchers, clippers and mail girls for Newsweek banded together to fight for their right to, well, write. One of these women included Lynn Povich, fall 2016 Mary Louise Smith Chair in Women and Politics, who before her lecture at Iowa State on Thursday evening, discussed defining aspects of her more than 40 years in journalism. Sitting in her Des Moines hotel room, Povich, who is also the author of “The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace” focused on what the lawsuit meant for her, future generations and the industry itself. While Povich was just a bit different from her colleagues, as she was serving as a junior writer at the time the lawsuit was filed, Povich recollected on the moment she realized that Newsweek, and the system itself, was discriminatory. “For me, it was when I learned that it was illegal, because I actually had been promoted out of the research category to be a junior writer. And one or two other woman had been promoted to being reporters,” Povich said. “But I had been a researcher and I knew that the way the system was, that was what you were and very few women got promoted.” So because of this, in the ladies’ bathroom of the Newsweek offices, Povich and her colleagues discussed what was at once the unthinkable: filing a complaint and a lawsuit. The complaint, which was announced during a press conference on a Monday morning in March on the

WinterFest kicks off holidays By Ally.Frickel December at Iowa State brings WinterFest, an event kicking off the winter season, engaging students in winter’s festivities. WinterFest 2016 will kick off Friday with all-day events ranging from seasonal beverage tasting to visiting the Knoll for a show of the holiday decorations on display. One of the traditions of WinterFest is the treelighting ceremony, which will take place at 5:30 p.m. Friday outside of Beardshear Hall. Another historical part of WinterFest are the Campanile Tours from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday. The tours will give people the chance to see the inside of a Cyclone icon. Tourists will be able to hear stories and traditions of the Campanile from university carillonneur Tin Shi Tam. The events not only range in activity but also in history. Some of them date back to when the Campanile was constructed, while others are newer in time. In addition to the history WinterFest carries, the kickoff event highlights what students can do not just Friday night but all throughout the winter months. A featured event at WinterFest, ice skating at the Ames/ISU ice arena by Wallace and Wilson Halls, is open for more than just WinterFest. On Wednesday evenings, students can bring their ISU ID and

skate between 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. for $3.25. But on Friday night, the first 1,000 participants will enter for free. Ice skating will take place between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Iowa State also wants to engage students and WinterFest-goers to make a difference. The Letter Writing Service Project will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Cardinal Room of Memorial Union. With Veteran’s Day recently passing, this part of WinterFest will allow anyone to write to those overseas and thank them for their service. In addition to the letter

writing, Jingle Jog will take place at 5:30 p.m. Friday in memory of Freshman Council member Andy Albright. Students can register for the fun run between 3:30 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. for $20. Any proceeds will be put toward a scholarship in Albright’s name, according to WinterFest advertisements. A portion of WinterFest activities revolve around food, all throughout the evening. Free chili, cookie decorating, seasonal beverage tasting, MU food court treats and the famous Knoll hot chocolate will be all around Winter-

same day that Newsweek released a cover story detailing the women’s movement, demanded equal opportunity. The “good girls” were revolting. “It had an effect and an impact beyond journalism. But the immediate impact I would say [that] was most visible to us was within our own profession,” Povich said. “And then we realized, as people kept coming forward, was that it was a ripple effect to other businesses as well.” Povich joked that if there was anything she would have done differently at the time, it would have been to sue for money too. “That was the system,” she said. “It was interesting to me when I started to write the book was what was the moment that sort of clicked on where each woman had realized, ‘Oh my god, this is crazy, this isn’t the way things should be. Why do we get held back?’” Povich, an award-winning journalist and the first female editor at Newsweek, is also a recipient of the Matrix Award for Magazines and serves on the advisory boards of the International Women’s Media Foundation, the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch and the CUNY Graduate Center Foundation. But Povich said the lawsuit may be one of the more notable aspects of her career. And for words of advice to anyone who may be feeling discrimination in the workplace, Povich recommends to first pinpoint what is happening and to document it. “Instead, what we realized was that it wasn’t us, it was the system we should be fighting, not each other,” Povich said. “And so, we really did come together, I mean, in the end, 46 of us signed the first complaint the day of the complaint, but then another 15 added their names because they just weren’t physically there.”



Fest. WinterFest fliers and the Iowa State website will state the times and locations for all treats. In addition to WinterFest, the ISU campus has been celebrating winter’s arrival all week long. From Nov. 28 until Dec. 2, there has been a clothing drive donating cold weather gear and other clothes to Youth and Shelter Services in Ames. Boxes collecting donations are located all around campus, including in Parks Library, Union Drive Community Center and Memorial Union. The Winter Savings Sale at the University Book Store, the Art Mart in the Campanile Room of Memorial Union to support local artists and a Cyclone Cinema screening of “Snowden” in 101 Carver Hall are some of the other events throughout the week.

Forestry Club sells evergreen trees By Paige.Anson

Chris Jorgensen/Iowa State Daily

The Inter-Residence Hall Association passed the funding of $6,225.36 to Dance Marathon during its final meeting of the fall semester Thursday night. IRHA also approved funding for Friley Hall Dead Week treats and for the Madrigal Dinners.

IRHA funds Dance Marathon By Alison Boysen The Inter-Residence Hall Association met Thursday for the last time in the fall semester to debate five previously discussed bills. The first item discussed was the Dance Marathon bill budget. IRHA considered funding $6,225.36 to the Dance Marathon budget, which would pay for shirts and decorations for the event. A lengthy discussion about spending that much ensued because only about 55 percent of the organization consists of residence hall members. “Don’t take this lightly; it’s 13 percent of our budget,” IRHA member Katie Neilson said. Sophomore Jacob Donahue also reminded his peers that IRHA has put money toward the annual event for about five years. The bill passed with a final vote of 24-3-1. Friley Hall Dead Week Treats was the second bill that was addressed. Each day of Dead Week, about 300 students visit Friley for treats the hall

hands out to students. The bill says it is a stress reliever to strained students who have been studying all week. The proposed budget for the bill was $1,575, and it passed with a vote of 18-10. The bill for the Madrigal Dinners proposed a budget of $1,950 to reduce ticket prices from $46 to $7. The lower ticket prices are only for the first 50 students who live in residence halls and pay dues to IRHA. IRHA has provided money for the Madrigal Dinners since 2001 and will continue to this year. A previous bill suggested for the updates for the Maple-Willow-Larch game room was amended to ask the IRHA to persuade the Department of Residence to provide another $3,000 to pay for the updates. The bill originally asked the IRHA to contribute these funds, but when met with much opposition, changed to ask the Department of Residence. Previously, the Department of Residence had renovated the game room the first time and has shown resistance to giving more money to

the MWL game room. The bill will be discussed next semester when IRHA meetings resume. An IRHA representative for Eaton Hall presented a bill that would fund Dead Week treats for the residents of Eaton Hall and other students as well. This bill is similar to the Friley Dead Week Treats but is asking for $600 to provide snacks for students. The bill was opposed by seven members but still passed. During an open forum, Student Government spoke about the several organizations it has recently funded and the appointment of a new cabinet member. It also has used $35,000 of its budget to provide the students and staff of Iowa State with a subscription to the New York Times. This implementation will begin on Dec. 12 and will be officially completed in January. The total for all of the bills passed at Thursday night’s meeting came to about $10,000, and there is still about $34,302 left in the IRHA account.

As Ames’ colorful deciduous plants are finally losing what’s left of their leaves, and with winter’s frost finally starting to bite here in Ames, Christmas’ traditional evergreens are beginning to take the spotlight in the Ames’ plant community as some of the only green left in our city’s natural landscapes. Bolstering the evergreen tree limelight and the Christmas atmosphere in Ames, Iowa State’s Forestry Club is having a Christmas tree and wreath fundraiser sale at Reiman Gardens. “This is basically our biggest fundraiser,” said Matthew Monahan, senior in forestry and organizer of the fundraiser this year. “… We do a few smaller ones but nothing of this size. This sale is what gets most of our funds for the year.” The sales take place in Reiman’s S1 parking lot, near the Maintenance Building. This week’s sales will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Sales will continue at the same times the next week and end after the Dec. 11 sale. The trees sold at Reiman are in part grown by the Forestry Club on land on campus apportioned to it by Iowa State and are also provided and delivered by nurseries in Wisconsin. The wreaths that are sold are grown at Belle Plaine Nursery in Belle Plaine, Iowa. The prices at the sale vary for both the wreaths and the trees depending on a few factors including size and species. “Bigger trees have a higher price, and certain species cost more,” Monahan said. Monahan said this year’s trees fall somewhere between 6 and 8 feet, and the three species available are Fraser Firs, Balsam Firs and White and Scotch Pines. The prices range from $30

to $60, with a 7- or 8-foot Fraser Fir holding the title of “most expensive” tree at $60 and the cheapest tree being a White and Scotch Pine at $30. The wreaths sold at the sale are Balsam Fir wreaths. Wreath prices also vary by decoration: a 24-inch pricing at $25 decorated and $20 undecorated, and a 30-inch pricing at $30 decorated and $25 undecorated. The accrued funds from the sales of the plants go toward the Forestry Club’s expenses for the year and helps it give a fun learning experience to students who are interested in the identification of tree species and timber-related activities. One opportunity that the Forestry Club has because of these sales, and through the club’s role as a member of the Society of American Foresters, is its ability to compete in an annual timber sports competition in the region; a series assembled by Stihl Timbersports. Stihl Timbersports is a professional series of woodchopping competitions in the United States and Canada that comes to the Midwest. Woodsmen and women compete in the series with the use of axes and saws for wood cutting, or chopping, in six strategized lumberjack events, according to the Stihl Timbersports website. “[The Forestry Club] goes to this big collegiate competition every year,” Monahan said. “[Each year], we are really trying to get enough money to send our competitors. Last year, [the competition] was in Missouri. This year, it is going to be hosted at Iowa State. … Usually 12 to 15 schools come. We came in third overall for the competition last year.” Monahan has been a member of the Forestry Club since his freshman year and is set to continue building a career out of his passion for forestry in Wisconsin this December, after graduation.

Trump’s uncertain economy ByNolan.Wright

Columnist Karayof was one of the more than 300 people who were injured during an assault waged against indigenous protesters by militia-styled police on Nov. 20 at Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock in North Dakota.


THE BLACK SNAKE Militia-styled police wage war against indigenous protesters By David.Karayof Editors note: This is the first column in a series on the Dakota Access pipeline and the indigenous protesters. This is the author’s account of the happenings at Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock on Nov. 20. As the sun set on our first day in the camp, my friends and I decided to take a hike through the foothills of North Dakota to get a view of the camp from the top of the mound. As we embarked on our journey, we encountered a handful of protectors attempting to clear debris from the road and a short distance ahead, a wall of concrete and razor wire guarded by a throng of militia-styled police. About 20 water protectors had begun to approach the wall in an attempt to explain their objective to the police, who were uninterested in establishing a line of communication, telling us that unless we dispersed immediately, they would open fire. As the minutes ticked by, more protectors began to appear, armed with plywood and plastic lids that served as shields, building a wall of protection between themselves and the police.

A young man who claimed to be just 16 years old, threw his hands up and declared that we were unarmed, that he refused to hide behind a makeshift wall. Undeterred by the urgings of the protectors and the demands of the police, he climbed atop a wooden post with his hands still in the air, shouting, “Who do you protect, who do you serve? Water is Life!” His words were followed by a stream of smoke that soared in a perfect arc across the inky sky, landing behind our makeshift wall, a moment of silence broken by an explosion, and then another, and another. The man on the post was hit by a ball of fire and he fell out of sight. As I ran toward him, there was another explosion and I was engulfed by the vapor from the blast. It had a sweet smell to it and, almost instinctively, I inhaled. The air in my lungs turned to fire, my eyes too. I ran in sync with a hundred others, all of us bottle-necked onto the bridge as the explosions continued to ring out from behind us. I was pulled along by the current of the crowd and eventually found my way out of the smog, where I collapsed, gasping for air. Volunteers arrived and, playing the part of medics, they ran toward the front lines with gas masks, goggles, ponchos and blankets, all the while evacuating the injured to the medic tent. The explosions had attracted the attention of the camp and hundreds more showed up within minutes. In a cruel twist of irony, their chants of


“Mni Wiconi - Water is Life!” were silenced from the end of a hose drawing icy water from the Missouri river, dousing us, despite the temperature, which was well below freezing. The assault continued for hours. We were shot with rubber bullets, tear gas, pepper spray and concussion grenades; my clothing became frozen solid and icicles formed in my hair and beard. Bonfires, which were originally started by the explosives hurled at us, were fed and flamed so as to warm us, while the police attempted to put them out. Keep in mind that this entire camp is outdoors, and that there was nowhere to go to escape the cold. When all was said and done, about 30 were hospitalized from the attack, over 300 were injured, myself included, and one young woman had the majority of her left arm blown off. We have to ask ourselves if it is acceptable for police to act as mercenaries for banks and oil companies, to disregard the safety of protesters, so as to protect profits. Is it acceptable that, despite our First Amendment protections, violence is being used against unarmed civilians fighting for environmental protection? Has police brutality and excessive force become so commonplace that this sort of behavior is not only acceptable but expected? And lastly, why has the media, as well as our president, remained mostly silent on this issue? Does it have anything to do with parent companies, or President Barack Obama, being owned by the same banks who fund this pipeline?

A lot of debate has surfaced over the last few weeks on the economic impact of Donald Trump’s unexpected victory. Before Nov. 8, much of the speculation on how the next president would impact markets focused on Hillary Clinton winning the presidency, with more focus on Trump’s effect if he lost than what impact he would theoretically have as president. The unexpected nature of Trump’s victory has fueled aggressive speculation and highly emotional editorializing. Depending on who you listen to, the way the market has behaved in recent weeks could mean many things. Many of these can be dismissed as uninformed people commenting on events without prioritizing objectivity. But a spread still remains among educated economists as to how the economy has responded and will respond in the future. When the stock market dipped immediately after the eleciton, many commentators cited this as, on some level, a mark against Trump. Less objective comments hinted that somehow this left Trump blameworthy for this. This seems unlikely, seeing as the only thing he did to cause this dip was winning the presidency. So why the dip? Merrill Lynch remarked during the election that markets, above all, dislike unexpected presidencies. With most investors preparing for a Clinton victory, the shock of Trump overcoming 1 to 3 odds on election day was worrisome for investors regardless of Trump’s policies and track record. Although the response of consumers and investors is the major link between the president elect’s actions and the economy’s behavior, it’s important not to forget the effect that Trump’s actions have indirectly. Trump has continued to shock and confuse the country with highly unorthodox cabinet appointments, holding meetings with questionable individuals and making statements ranging from vaguely reassuring to outlandish. Although no single statement or appointment made by Trump has affected the economy as much as the election, the decisions and statements he makes are now at least somewhat blameworthy. Trump’s statements and choices are not invariably worrying but they contain a regular trend of beguiling buyers and investors. The argument that Trump is proving that his presidential term will be a harmful one is not a huge leap to make, but there is a stronger and simpler argument to be made. More essential than this claim of foreshadowed crises is the claim that Trump is creating a lack of certainty in the months leading up to his inauguration. One can hope that Trump will be more predictable, among many things. It’s more than likely that once the president is locked into his office he will become more consistent. But seeing the last few weeks of unnerving behaviors provides one clear prediction — that in the points where our next president will be expected to provide a steady hand, he will have more difficulty rising to the occasion than he should.


Trump redifining ‘presidental’ When Donald Trump announced he would be running for president last June, it was clear from the start that no matter how the race ended up, millions of people would jump on board with what began as a patently divisive campaign. As his rallies got bigger and the rhetoric more hateful, many wondered if Trump had what it took to not just be president of the United States, but to act “presidential.” The campaign raged on. Month by month, primary win by primary win, the everdisputed question shifted from “When will he start acting presidential?” to “Will he act presidential?” And now that the election is over and his path to the White House is just weeks from being solidified, the question becomes: What does acting “presidential” mean anymore? In a sense, this was what Trump’s supporters wanted all along. Millions of people voted for him not because they expected him to shape up once he entered the White House, but because the man they watched ascend from billionaire businessman to legitimate presidential contender was exactly what they wanted to see in the White House. Our current and past presidents, of course, didn’t agree. While President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were essentially guaranteed to support Hillary Clinton, both George Bushes likely did not vote for a

new president, reinforcing the rift between “establishment Republicans” and Donald Trump that arose during the latter’s campaign. In short, no living person who had ever held the job of president of the United States believed Trump was qualified for the job — not even fellow Republicans. For one thing, all five men had some sort of political experience before running for president. None threatened to throw any of their opponents in jail. None had to so strongly defend having the appropriate temperament to hold the highest office in the land. Granted, when it comes to a presidency in 2017, there is one glaring area where Trump’s supposed “presidential” nature cannot be compared to past presidents: social media. When Obama took office in 2008, Twitter was only about 2 and half years old; Obama’s personal account had only 124,000 followers two days after Election Day (compared to Trump’s personal account, which began this past Election Day with 13 million followers). While Obama is not known for his numerous Twitter tirades today, one could argue that in 2008, he simply didn’t have the platform for public outbursts, nor the media scrutiny to cover them. The fact remains, however, that Trump does have this platform — and more than 16 million followers — and only one other person has held the office of president since it became commonplace for public figures

to have an account. Arguably, Obama’s usage of Twitter is the current standard for what “presidential” tweeting looks like: namely, neither @POTUS or @BarackObama uses the account’s platform to single out journalists, retweet supporters without checking their tweet histories or go on 3 a.m. rants against “the media.” Trump also uses Twitter to carry out other arguably unpresidential duties, namely the careless spreading of fake news. He simply does not care whether the things he tweets are truthful or not. He knows that in spite of his claims lacking a source (unless it’s Breitbart or Infowars, for now), his followers will instantly believe that he actually won the popular vote due to a case of voter fraud unseen in the history of this country, that the New York Times lost “thousands of subscribers” due to its “poor” coverage of him and that “professional protesters” spoke out against his win. Some may still hold out hope that on Jan. 20, Trump will experience a dramatic shift in temperament befitting of the office of president. But if he does, his supporters won’t be on board, and considering his upcoming “Thank America” victory tour, the admiration and support from his supporters he gained acting how he did throughout his campaign is not something he’s likely to throw away.

SPORTS Cyclones face toughest test yet 6

Friday, December 2, 2016

By Brian.Mozey The goal for the Iowa State women’s basketball program was to go a perfect 5-0 in the month of November. Done. The next goal is to beat No. 6 Mississippi State and unranked New Orleans this upcoming weekend on Dec. 3 and 4. Uncertain. Iowa State will face its toughest non-conference opponent in recent memory. The Cyclones had a 1-9 record against top-25 teams last season and are looking to improve upon that record for the upcoming season. Coach Bill Fennelly will rely on his veteran guards in Jadda Buckley and Seanna Johnson to stop two of the most productive Bulldogs on the team. “We need a collective team effort to get the win this weekend,” Fennelly said. “Mississippi State is an excellent and they’re ranked for a reason. We just need to solidify everything during this week in practice.” Mississippi State relies on its two starting guards, Morgan William and Victoria Vivians, to lead the Bulldogs throughout the early part of

the season. Vivians is the points leader for Mississippi State with 101 and is averaging 14.4 points per game. Johnson will likely defend her most of the game, and Fennelly trusts her defense to stop their leading scorer. Johnson has confidence in herself to not only guard Vivians but also focus on her strength, which is rebounding. She knows it’ll be a tough task, but she believes her experiences will help her with not only Vivians but Mississippi State as a whole. “I remember what it was like to beat Baylor at home a couple years ago,” Johnson said. “I can take that game and learn from it to try and beat another top-rated opponent.” The game Johnson was referring to was the Baylor game on Feb. 28, 2015. Baylor was ranked No. 3 in the country and Iowa State pulled the upset in a 76-71 win at Hilton Coliseum. Fennelly said that this type of upset will need a team effort and not just a couple individual efforts, but he’s going to need to rely on his veteran players. Besides Johnson, Buckley will have a challenge against William, who is Mississippi State’s second best scorer

GAME INFO Iowa State (5-0, 0-0 Big 12) vs. No. 6 Mississippi State (7-0, 0-0 SEC) Saturday | 1:30 p.m. Hilton Coliseum | Ames, Iowa Watch: FSN -For updated info before, during and after the game, follow @ BrianMozey and A_Mar32 and is leading the team in assists. Williams is only 5 feet 5 inches tall, which means her speed and agility will be her main strength to get around defenders like Buckley and get to the hoop. Fennelly has told Buckley to be aware of those traits and be ready to stop her at a moment’s notice. And Buckley is ready. “I have all my faith in Jadda [Buckley] to defend whoever she needs to in the game,” Fennelly said. “She’s a leader on this team and we know we’ll get the best out of her against these two teams this weekend.” Mississippi State and Iowa State are similar in the fact that both teams rely on bench play. The Bulldogs

Purdue sweeps ISU By Ben.Visser Iowa State volleyball (18-11, 10-6 Big 12) was one of the hottest teams coming into the NCAA Tournament. It wasn’t able to carry that momentum into its first match. The Cyclones were swept by the Purdue Boilermakers (26-24, 25-21, 25-13) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The two teams squared off on Thursday in Columbia, Missouri. The first two sets went down to the wire with both offenses dominating the match. Iowa State hit .381 and .382 in the first and second sets, while Purdue hit an impressive .405 and .469. The third set was all Purdue. The Boilermakers jumped out to a 9-2 lead and didn’t look back. Purdue was led by 6-foot-4 outside hitter Danielle Cuttino in the match. She recorded 21 kills on a .613 hitting percentage. Sherridan Atkinson and Faye Adelaja also contributed 10 and eight kills, respectively. In the third set, Purdue hit an astonishing .522 as a team. Iowa State’s block had been strong in the last half

of Big 12 play, but it was only able to manage one block against the Boilermakers. On the other side of the net, Iowa State hit just .217 in the third set. Samara West led Iowa State with 10 kills on a .600 hitting percentage. The usually reliable Jess

Schaben was never able to get going. She recorded nine kills, but only hit .222 with three errors. Middle blocker Alexis Conaway is an offensive minded middle blocker, but on Thursday, she only got six opportunities. She capitalized on three of the attempts, hitting .500.

games. The Cyclones might also have forward Heather Bowe back from her ankle injury, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Fennelly expects a tough matchup from Mississippi State, but he’s excited to see how the players handle the atmosphere of a top-10

Diving competition intensifies By Rachel.Given The Iowa State dive team has faced a tough schedule this season. Before Thanksgiving break, coach Jeff Warrick gave the women a new competition to challenge themselves at the Mizzou Invite. He was pleased with the results. The divers put up good marks in their first competition of the year. “They came in with a great attitude and were prepared,” Warrick said. “I think they did their work not just in the pool but outside the pool getting mentally and emotionally ready.” Warrick has planned another tough invitational for the Cyclones to compete in: The Jean Freeman Invite hosted by Minnesota. Freshman diver Katherine Mueller is looking forward to her second invitational as a collegiate athlete but noted that she isn’t a fan of the quick turnaround after Thanksgiving break. “Going into this [invite], I have more confidence because I’ve done it before,” Mueller said. “But it also kind of hurts because we just got back from [a competition], and with the break, we haven’t really had much time to train that much.” The format of the Jean

Freeman Invite is a little unique compared to most other invites. It gives the athletes the option to choose between the 1-meter board or platform in addition to the 3-meter board. “It’s a little different,” Warrick said. “But at least that option to dive platform is there, it’s a good thing.” Warrick is allowing the athletes to choose which boards they want to compete on. This invitational is also finals round only, giving the divers just one chance to dive all six dives versus the normal prelims and finals rounds at other invites. Injuries seem to be inevitable for a few athletes. Sophomore Maggie James most likely won’t compete this weekend due

to a knee injury. Redshirt sophomore Sydney Ronald has also been dealing with knee problems but hopes to compete in at least one event like she did at the Mizzou Invite. Competition isn’t finalized, Warrick said, but the Cyclones will face some familiar faces. Kansas, South Dakota State and Nebraska will all be present in addition to some smaller Division II and Division III schools. Warrick believes having such a range of levels won’t affect the team negatively but rather makes the meet even more competitive. The swim team is taking a break this weekend and shifting its focus to the upcoming Cy-Hawk meet on Dec. 9 in Iowa City.

Wrestling seeks to make statement By Curran.McLaughlin Iowa State wrestling is testing its metal against some of the nation’s top competition. The Cyclones are heading to Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday and Saturday to compete in the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Wrestling Invitational. The tournament will bring many top names and schools, with each weight class having five or more ranked wrestlers competing. With Iowa State slowly regaining its full lineup, the invitational will be a measuring stick to see how well the Cyclone grapplers can compete against topnotch competition. “It’s a great chance to show what you’re capable of against the nation’s best,” coach Kevin Jackson said. “[It puts] you in a tournament situation like the NCAA [or] Big 12 [Championships] against similar competition that you would face at that tournament.” Jackson expects his team to prove itself in a highpressure environment. With so much depth at each weight class, every Iowa State wrestler will have his abilities tested. Markus Simmons, redshirt freshman at 125 pounds, is excited to see where he stands so far in the season. “I love competition,” Simmons said. “I want to wrestle the best guys to prove, to show them that I’m up there also with my competition level.”

Pat Downey, Earl Hall and Lelund Weatherspoon pose for photos at wrestling media day on Oct. 18 in the wrestling room at Lied Recreation Athletic Center.

Simmons has only wrestled one match so far this year because senior Kyle Larson started the season at 125. Simmons had weight issues last week, but he’s confident that he won’t let the weight cuts become an issue on the mat. “I have a lot of confidence in my wrestling, but I just want to feel good on the mat while wrestling,” Simmons said. “[I want to make] the least amount of mistakes possible going into matches.” Simmons said he was already at a better weight compared to last week, when he didn’t make

weight for the Northern Colorado meet. At 133 pounds, senior Earl Hall is ready to make an early season statement. The No. 5 ranked wrestler is still fine-tuning his game plan to give himself the best shot at being successful. Hall acknowledged that he has what it takes to be a champion at 133 pounds, but he wanted to work on letting his offense fly in matches and wrestle with energy from the start. A possible matchup with No. 3 Nathan Tomasello from Ohio State could tell if Hall is heading in the right direction. He’s ready

If we can get Earl to match that or exceed that, he’s going to really put himself in position to do some damage when it comes championship season.” The two-time All-American is looking to show people that he can be the best in the nation. After being allowed to compete

a fourth year by the NCAA, Hall isn’t taking this chance for granted. “I’m 23 years old, it’s my last year,” Hall said. “With God’s grace, I get another year. [I] got to make the best of it. It’s another opportunity to show that Earl Hall is here, Earl Hall is ready to wrestle and Earl Hall is a different man this year.”

CYCLONES p1 “The biggest key is that we weren’t able to get enough good quality shots on the offensive end,” Prohm said. “That’s something I got to look at and do better with.” It was a defensive affair all night long. Well, that or a lack of offensive success. Both teams struggled offensively to put up points, neither shooting better than 37 percent from the field. At halftime, Cincinnati led just 25-24. It was a slow, methodical game. Iowa State had several chances to break away in the second half, too, but it was never able to. Cincinnati dominated the Cyclones inside, outrebounding Iowa State by 12 boards and grabbing 16 total offensive boards. The Bearcats also had 30 of their 55 points from inside the paint, something that seemed to come easy. “It just came down to boxing out,” said Darrell Bowie, who finished the night with 11 points and seven rebounds. “I don’t think size really mattered.” And when it came down to the last few moments of the game, the Iowa State offense stalled. It couldn’t get set up. It seemed discombobulated. It settled for shots. And Cincinnati took advantage. The Bearcats capitalized at the end of regulation, forcing an offbalanced 3-point attempt from Naz Mitrou-Long — who was held scoreless for the first time since 2015 — and again at the end of overtime, forcing an even tougher jumper from Mitrou-Long. The offense froze. “I don’t know,” a visibly shaken Monté Morris said when asked about the offensive production after the game. “We just have to watch film, and we’ll see. “I’m not sure. We just didn’t make shots.”

Max Goldberg/Iowa State Daily

Senior Monté Morris goes up for a layup against Cincinnati on Thursday at Hilton Coliseum. After heading into overtime, the Cyclones would come up short and lose 55-54, falling to 5-2 on the season.

Prohm saw the offensive struggles late, too. And this wasn’t the first time. Against Gonzaga, the Cyclones stalled late, too, failing to create an opportunity for a good shot in the final seconds of the game. That, he said, is from a lack of movement. “I have to make sure that we’re moving the ball in those situations, even if you want it in a certain guy’s hands, just to shift it a little bit,” Prohm said. Iowa State’s loss snaps its 37-game home nonconference winning streak, and its 54 points were the fewest since mid-2013. But Morris — who had 15 points and two assists — still found a way to put things in perspective. Cin-

cinnati, after all, received 49 votes in the latest Associated Press poll and was ranked one spot above the Cyclones in the KenPom rankings. “We were just one or two stops away,” Morris said. “Rebounding was a major key down the stretch. We didn’t get the ones that we were supposed to.” The Cyclones will host Omaha on Monday before traveling to Iowa City next Thursday for the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series basketball game. Until that time, Morris said, they just need to reflect and watch film. “We just have to go back to the drawing board,” Morris said. “It ain’t the end of the world. We lost by one. We can get better.”

for whatever matchup the tournament gives to him. “I love big matches,” Hall said. “I live for them. I know one of the things I live for is to live in the limelight.” Jackson doesn’t think Hall has much else to prove in terms of athleticism and technique. He believes Hall can wrestle with anybody. It’s whether Hall is mentally tough enough. That’s what Jackson wants to see in Las Vegas. Jackson hopes Hall will get the opportunity to face Tomasello. “[Tomasello] brings pace, he brings energy, he brings effort every single

The event is also expecting protestors, according to ISU Students 4 Trump.
