Ames Police searching for missing person By Makayla.Tendall @iowastatedaily.com A 21-year-old Ames man was reported missing Wednesday after family and friends have not been able to contact him since Jan. 31. Thomas Dooley was reported missing by his father, said Geoff Huff, investigations commander for Ames Police Department. Dooley, who was not an Iowa State student, lived off Florida Avenue in West Ames. “We have this all the time, where parents call us and say I

haven’t been able to get ahold of my kid for three days,” Huff said. “We go out and knock on a couple of doors and we find them. This one, it’s been two weeks. We’ve got roommates that haven’t seen him. He hasn’t called anybody we can find.” The former girlfriend of the missing man said she may know where and why he disappeared. “I’m the reason that he’s missing. I’m his ex-girlfriend. I pressed charges against him for domestic abuse and a whole bunch of stuff,” said Makenzie Hobson, junior in

pre-business at Iowa State. “He kind of went MIA after I told his dad.” Hobson said she and Dooley had dated for 11 months prior to his disappearance. Although Ames police remain unsure of Dooley’s whereabouts, Hobson said she believes Dooley is in Arizona and that he disappeared of his own volition. She said she last saw Dooley on Jan. 31 after she drove him to his home . “Right after I dropped him off, I went and pressed charges,” Hobson said. “He knows he’s in a

lot of trouble.” Hobson did not want to detail the charges because she said they are still pending. “He always said, ‘if we weren’t together I would be gone. I would move to Arizona and I would never tell my family.’ He’s kind of good at just up and leaving and finding new places to live,” Hobson said. “We didn’t leave on very good terms.” The Ames police department asks anyone with information about Dooley to call them at 515-239-5133.

Leath talks major issues with GSB members By William.Dyke @iowastatedaily.com

Ravenscroft said that they wondered if estimates done by the Iowa State Center internal estimate matched with the consultant’s report. The consulting firm estimates showed that there would only be 48 added jobs instead of the 218 the Iowa State Center estimated. The Iowa State Center also estimated that there would be a $14.4 million boost in the Ames economy instead of the $3.2 million figure on the consultant’s estimate.

Iowa State President Steven Leath addressed the Government of the Student Body Wednesday night to cover major issues including student enrollment, funding from the state government and other issues. On the topic of student enrollment, Leath shared positive feelings for the student enrollment levels and how they’re far exceeding expectations. ISU currently enrolls more than 33,000 students with 22 percent minority diversity. The university is finalizing a large, university-wide diversity report on how to address current minority issues. President Leath also addressed the GSB’s bill for the addition of a Student Diversity Committee, expressing wishes for the ISU administration and GSB to partner on issues brought up in the report. Leath suggested multiple variables as to why Iowa State’s enrollment continues to increase. They included communication between alumni and current students to friends and family, the university’s job placement rate, as well as the sense of community with having so many students in a single area. “Everyone asks me, why we have so many students and why our application numbers are so high,” Leath said. “The truthful answer is, we don’t really know.” Leath also addressed funding from the state government. “The governor came through for us this year with a 4 percent general fund increase and he also wrote things into his budget to fund specific programs,” Leath said. Leath mentioned the university’s promise to freeze tuition if the 4 percent budget increase came through. Leath did mention that he still has to go through the House and Senate to get approved, but he expressed cautious optimism that Iowa State would be able to freeze tuition for a second consecutive year. “Tomorrow when I testify in front of the joint and approach committee, the things I’m going to stress are related to you,” Leath said. “I told them when I got here that providing access and affordability weren’t that hard. Providing access, affordability and quality was the difficult problem, and we don’t want to lose quality.” Leath told GSB that he would explain what it takes to maintain academic excellence and improving it. He plans to also talk about student suc-

Iowa State’s College of Design together with the Chinese Student and Scholars Association will host the Exhibition of Artwork by Wuhan University School of Urban Design faculty

members. “Our faculty has worked nationally and internationally and I thought about how their passion and talent could be displayed on an international venue,” said Zhang Ming, dean of the School of Urban Design at Wuhan University. Chiu-Shui Chan, professor of architecture, had been working with exchange programs for quite some time and was also on a search to broaden his students horizon. While searching for such a venue, Ming said he got in touch Chan. Feb. 12, an opening ceremony will be held in the College of Design’s Gallery 181.

Visitors bureau uses inaccurate numbers Convention Center estimated cost, benefits controversial By Makayla.Tendall @iowastatedaily.com The Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau continues to use inaccurate economic benefit estimates of a proposed convention center in Ames, said Dave Swenson, associate scientist of economics-agriculture and life sciences, despite his recom-

mendations they use accurate numbers. The bureau released updated estimates Friday, but Swenson said the estimates were still miscalculated. The proposed convention center and reconstruction of the Scheman Building would benefit the hotel, restaurant and business industries in the Ames area. The bureau is asking voters to approve a $19 million bond referendum to fund some of the construction costs. This bond would be paid in property taxes that would cost the average

homeowner an estimate of $60 a year for 20 years. Sixty percent of voters would need to approve the construction of the convention center which would cost an estimate of $38.8 million. In 2012, Swenson and Sue Ravenscroft, professor of accounting, were asked by Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau board members and city councilman Matthew Goodman to review estimates made by the consulting firm Conventions, Sports & Leisure. After reading the consultant report, both Swenson and

The College of Business CyBIZ Lab program kickstarted with the start of the spring semester. CyBIZ Lab allows students to work with professional companies to solve real life situations as part of their education at Iowa State. Last fall, at the beginning of the program, CyBIZ hired four graduate students to set the layout of CyBIZ. Three undergraduate students have been hired so far, and the program is looking to have a total of eight students within the program. The graduate students are essentially the team leaders, and they help with specific business projects while also managing the program. There is a wide spread of skills on the team, as well. The students do not need to be a business major, but they do need to

have interest and desire to participate in the program. The undergraduate students tend to have more of a narrow skill of interest, and the grad students can assist them to help enhance their learning experience. Business cases have been in the classroom settings for many years but the program allows students to obtain more experience. “The program is great for students because there is nothing more rewarding than taking what you have learned in the classroom and applying it to real life,” said Zach Lenhart, junior in supply chain management. Currently, CyBIZ is working with WebFilings, Iowa Arboretum, CH Robinson and Prairie Rivers of Iowa. The projects vary depending on what the company needs. Iowa Arboretum and CH Robinson are two companies that have asked CyBIZ Lab to create a survey that will help pinpoint future goals and values of the clients. Some other projects might include market analysis, industry research and financial analysis. “CyBIZ allows for a more-relaxed and flex-

ible schedule, so there is more time to serve the companies,” said Judi Eyles, CyBIZ program coordinator. The program is also a great way to help direct companies to specific services that may help them. CyBIZ allows a wider venue to help serve companies and students. “The program allows us to organize the control in one central place,” Eyles said. “This gives more opportunities for projects.” Both parties benefit from the program. Companies receive a fresh view on business issues and they tend to like working with students. The company has “new eyes” without having to hire a full-time employee. “The program is a great benefit in networking,” said Alex Andrade,

graduate in business administration. “The program may lead to internship opportunities, as well as full-time employment after graduation.” Acceptance into the program has an intensive interviewing process along with summiting a resume and proving a general interest in business. The students do not have to be business majors because specific projects might need certain areas of expertise. An example of someone who would be hired with a nonbusiness major would be if a business of a technical focus came to CyBIZ and asked for their help. A student from engineering might be hired to help with this certain project. The team works every week on the projects, and they are currently working on eight different ones. The hours are flexible for the students and they typically work ten hours a week. The main goal for CyBIZ Lab is to help students receive hands-on experience. The companies benefit from receiving ideas from sources other than their employees. “I am excited for the new projects that will be coming in,” Lenhart said.

Ming and other Wuhan faculty members do not just want to display the art, they want to teach people about Chinese culture and provide the possibility of interaction, Ming said. In order to do so, Wuhan’s faculty members will demonstrate the techniques they used for their specific artwork in workshops over the course of the exhibit. “Our professors prepared a lot of these artworks especially for this exhibition, and they are very devoted,” Ming said. Visitors will have the opportunity to watch demonstrations of Chinese traditional art glace painting, charcoal pencil and pen sketches, lithographic plat painting, water color paintings and photography focused on light and shadow. During those demonstrations, members of the Chinese Student Association will provide translations, said Jingyu Feng, senior in architecture and minister of propaganda of the Chinese Student Association. Chan said he hopes that this exhibition will provide the opportunity to open doors in the future not just for the students of the college of design

Leath discussed positive feedback provided by the students, including reasonability of class schedules, traditional five-day weeks, instructor availability, high ratings for learning communities, the availability and quality of recreation centers, the presence of CyRide and the overall safety and comfort that the university provides.

Ravenscroft said the new estimates seemed to be “dismal” compared to the estimates the bureau was showing and that the center would not have enough of an economic benefit to justify the cost. “I thought they were going to give up. I thought they really were through,” Ravenscroft said. “I was kind of shocked when I heard vague rumors that we were going to be voting on it again. I started looking around thinking ‘what numbers are they coming up with?’” Ravenscroft alerted Swenson to the fact that the bureau was still using what they believed were inaccurate estimates to educate the public on the convention center proposal.

ISU students and community members protested the Keystone XL pipeline for an hour on the corner of Welch Avenue and Lincoln Way Feb. 3.

Pipeline battle is symbolic, not based on impact With so much buzz around TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would transport oil from Canada’s tar sands to the Texas coast, almost anyone new to the discussion would think a major battle with large effects on job creation, environmental protections and carbon emissions is being waged. Few would gather the actual significance of the pipeline on these fronts: minimal at best. With the State Department’s final environmental impact statement, released Jan. 31, comes revelations that only a few thousand temporary jobs would be created and the risks of spills or other negative environmental impacts are likely less than those of traditional oil transport. In addition to these findings, the extraction of Canadian oil sands [and the emissions associated with them] is expected to proceed rapidly whether or not the pipeline is built. The neutrality of those hired by the State Department for this report has been called into question. This is a grave accusation, but may be more than a little misleading. Environmental Resources Management, the consulting firm that worked with the State Department on the Keystone XL assessment, does work with TransCanada and other oil companies to assess risk and environmental impacts of various projects, including pipelines. According to correspondence released by the State Department, these potential conflicts were known and dealt with, by ERM both separating its personnel and declining other business that would have jeopardized their neutrality. To say that ERM worked on projects related to TransCanada is technically true, but in the relatively small world of oil pipeline environmental impact analysis, such relationships are not necessarily cause for worry, as long as appropriate precautions are taken. Opponents of Keystone have been hard at work long before the final environmental impact statement was published, however. Even without figures on jobs created or information on the potential damages to our land and water, it has been repeatedly stated that the Keystone XL pipeline is a symbol of our government’s environmental commitment. Those that would see the project scrapped, such as 350.org, a group dedicated to combatting climate change, have vested the pipeline with as much symbolic importance as they can muster. Referring to the proposal as “the fuse to the largest carbon bomb on the planet,” 350.org helped inspire hundreds of demonstrations around the nation, including a Feb. 3 protest in Ames. What these protesters are doing is admirable, in a way. They have decided to take a stand in defense of our environment, against the damaging effects of the fossil fuel industry. Unfortunately for these activists, they have chosen the wrong issue. Stopping the Keystone XL pipeline may be a symbolic victory, but it is not a real victory for the environment. Yes, specific eyesores such as a thousandsof-miles-long pipe make it easier to drum up support, but a win is essentially meaningless. Keystone XL does not have a massive impact. Taken as an important precedent, the value of blocking the project is even worse. What would our government be saying by disallowing TransCanada to build a relatively safe transport system? We certainly would not be saying we disapprove of fossil fuels, or even heavily polluting tar sands. All our government would be saying is that they will selectively prevent perceived environmental risks, irrespective of their actual impact. If we wish to protect our environment, we should be demanding policy changes with real effects, not symbolic victories.environmental risks, irrespective of their actual impact.

Columnist Titus suggests that the legislative panel responsible for passing a ban on abortion pills may have made the wrong decision. She says women need the ability to terminate their pregnancies at the earliest stage for which pills would allow.

Panel makes wrong choice in approving abortion pill ban By Katie.Titus @iowastatedaily.com

A

fter a legislative panel approved a measure that banned abortion pills went into play Wednesday, women are no longer allowed to have access to the abortion pill. While I am pro-life, I do think that if women are going to terminate their pregnancies, it should happen at the earliest stage possible. The abortion pill should not be taken away. Banning abortion has been tested in the past, and women would most likely go back to the way they did things before it was legalized for doctors. They tried to do it themselves. When it comes to the level of danger for the mother, I would think that a pill would be safer than a woman attempting to abort a child without a doctor. The abortion pill gives women the option to terminate pregnancy at an early stage. The way that it has been decided in past circumstances is by a video chat with doctors to decide whether or not the pill form of abortion is right for that specific woman. Making the decision to end a life should take more than just a video chat with your doctor. If you are planning on having an abortion, you should have to take the drive to see a doctor.

It was suggested that doing the videos with the doctor to make this tough decision would be easier in Iowa because there are so many towns and farms that are too far out in the country to be able to come in to make a doctor’s appointment. Personally, I do not think that if you are going to abort a child you should be able to make that decision via video. If you cannot make the trip in to see a doctor, you cannot terminate the pregnancy. Once in the doctor’s office, deciding to end the pregnancy at an early stage with a pill sounds like it would be better than waiting for the baby to be further along. A fetus can feel pain at twenty-three weeks, so the pill form abortion would mean terminating a pregnancy before the fetus would feel any pain. The determining factor in deciding against the pill was that it would give women a longer time to decide if they wanted to keep the baby. In a story from the Des Moines Register, Dr. Windschitl said, “I’m not trying to take away a right that the Supreme Court found in 1973. There’s no way that you can fully legislate away abortion, and I fully respect that. It’s about changing hearts and minds.” Clearly, Dr. Windschitl is optimistic about women changing their

minds when it comes to abortion, but what are the odds these women actually change their minds? Chances are that women who plan on having an abortion are not going to change their minds because they are starting to show signs of pregnancy physically. For some women, actually seeing their body change may change their mind and make them feel more compelled to keep the baby, but it is also a possibility that it will make women want to get an abortion more and they may look for alternative, unhealthy ways to abort the child. A fetus is a life. Although a mother has not birthed it yet, it is still a human and should be treated as such. If a mother is going to choose to abort her child, it is safer for both the mother and the baby to do it at an early stage in the pregnancy. If women are considering abortion, they should get into the doctor’s office to get a second opinion. If I were to get an abortion a simple video chat with my doctor would not be enough to make a decision. It is understandable that not everyone has access to a doctor’s office, but we are not talking about getting rid of the common cold with some medicine sent after a video chat. We are talking about deciding whether or not to take a life.

Letter to the Editor

Science falsely named ‘waste of time’ Matt Johnson is an undergraduate in mathematics In a recent article entitled, “Science must be questioned,” the author questions science’s predictive ability and states, “we can never genuinely know what happened in the past, because we were not there to see it for ourselves”; therefore, science is a “waste of time” and thus ought to be defunded. This line of thinking is utterly nonsensical and disturbing, and illustrates the author’s lack of scientific understanding. I suspect this rhetoric derives from an intentional ignorance concerning biological evolution. But I digress. The fact is, learning about our biological, geological and astronomical past is not a waste time. Not only does the knowledge obtained help us better understand our place in the universe, but it also allows

our society to benefit from the great scientific discoveries of the past 400 years and is what drives the engines of our economy. To illustrate my point, astronomy is a science that studies the past. How can this be? Good question. It is because of our understanding of light, which has been studied experimentally and quantitatively determined by various scientists such as Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Michelson, Edward Morley and Albert Einstein. Through the process of scientific discovery, humans have determined that it takes one year for light to travel 5.9 trillion miles. This indicates the speed of light is constant, which means that light does not speed up nor does it slow down. It stays the same, constant, from one point to another. For example, it takes light roughly 4.3 lightyears to travel from our closest, neighbor star system, Alpha Centauri to our home planet of Earth.

Because of light, we are able to view Alpha Centauri as it was 4.3 years ago. Since the speed of light was discovered through scientific rigor to be a constant, an important fact, astronomers can make predictions of stellar phenomena, and utilize physical and mathematical models to show the distance of a star, a galaxy, or a cluster of galaxies, which can be millions or even billions of light years away. Hence, the author claims that “we can never genuinely know what happened in the past,” but we indeed do. Furthermore, our civilization has been built on such discoveries. From this understanding of light, engineers have built telescopes, microscopes, mirrors, lasers, cameras (Your cell phone has one, correct?) and have developed machines for such medical disciplines as ophthalmology and optometry, just to name a few. This one little example

demonstrates that quite a bit is known about our cosmological history and that the consequences of such discoveries are the technological applications that you and I benefit from every day. As you can clearly see, all of this hubbub over the past few centuries has been well worth the time and energy, and contrary to the author of the original piece, has not been a “waste of time.” Mr. Maxwell is correct in his assertion, “Science must be questioned,” and it has, by scores of scientists for more than 400 years. Science is a malleable process of inquisitive thought, constantly questioning, observing, experimenting, testing and refining, all the while getting closer and closer to the truth. That, my dear sir, is science, and as a consequence, well, take a selfie with your cell phone and post it to Facebook, and take solace in the fact that you just benefited from science.

Women’s distance coach Andrea Grove-McDonough talks with middle distance assistant Will Palmer. This is both coaches’ first year with Iowa State track and field.

IN WITH THE NEW Coaches bring fresh energy to Iowa State

By Chris.Wolff @iowastatedaily.com A new coaching staff for the ISU track and field program has brought a number of changes this season. The staff, led by five-time national champion coach Martin Smith, has brought a new energy to the squad, as well as new training methods and early season success. The staff, currently in its first year at Iowa State, has proven to have the team heading in the right direction as 42 athletes have set personal records up to this point in the season, with multiple athletes setting personal records and then resetting their personal records again. This year’s coaching staff includes Andrea GroveMcDonough, who previously turned Connecticut into a nationally-ranked program. She has been the ISU women’s cross country team coach and will specialize in women’s middle and long distance

events, where this year’s team has excelled so far. “Just having [GroveMcDonough] around helped a lot of us gain a confidence that we never had before, you can just tell that she has so much faith in us as athletes and she wants the very best for us,” said ISU redshirt senior Sam Bluske. The coaching staff seems to have won over the trust and respect of the athletes in a short amount of time. Many of the women’s distance athletes credit GroveMcDonough and assistant coach Will Palmer for their success so far. “I think we owe a lot of that credit to coach McDonough, she’s been making us work really hard, but also pays attention to how we are feeling,” said Bethanie Brown. “She can push us to our limits, but still doesn’t over work us.” The staff has also seemingly reinvigorated the program. With a new staff, head-

ed by a five-time national championship coach, expectations for the program have been raised. The heightened expectations have had positive impacts in the staff’s first year. “I think a lot of us this year are coming in with a new, refreshed attitude toward running with the new staff,” said Katy Moen, a redshirt junior who set a personal record in the 3,000-meter run this past weekend. “Changes motivate people, so I think that’s a big factor.” Last weekend, ISU athletes set five personal records, and the distance medley relay team broke the school record in the event. The athletes say new training methods are a major reason for the gains they have been able to meet. Bluske said in years past, they have focused more on volume training and less on the intensity of the training. This year, the volume has been dialed back, but the workouts have become more

intense, which seems to have benefited the team so far. Another area where the Cyclones have made huge gains is in the field events, which are coached primarily by Fletcher Brooks, associate head coach. Kelly McCoy, a redshirt junior high jumper, and Christina Hillman, a junior thrower, have both credited Brooks’ training regimen as the key to their early season success. On top of everything, the new coaching staff has brought a new energy to the

program and that has invigorated and motivated the team for bigger and better things. That, paired with the new training methods the team has instituted, has resulted in a lot of early season success and excitement for the direction the team is heading. “The energy that the coaches bring is something that’s really motivating to everyone,” said Maggie Gannon, redshirt junior distance runner. “[The coaches] do a really good job of being specific with us and what our role is on the team.”

Cyclones prepare to tee off in first match of season By Mike.Randleman @iowastatedaily.com Nearly five months have passed since the Iowa State men’s golf team last teed up competitively, but the Cyclones will try to pick up where they left off from their fall campaign that earned them a top-50 ranking. Starting with the Alumni Match on Feb. 16 in Scottsdale, Ariz., an exhibition event that pairs current Cyclones with alumni, the team will begin a threeweek west coast trip to begin the spring season. “It’s a pretty casual event, but we do keep score. We’ll pair one Cyclone with three alumni and it’s the alumni’s best ball versus the Cyclone’s best ball,” said ISU coach Andrew Tank of the Scottsdale event. “What it really allows us to do, though, is get three good days of practice down in Arizona.” Those three days of practice will be crucial, as it will provide an opportunity for the team to practice outdoors before its first two back-to-back tournaments, the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate in Palm Springs, Calif. and the Big Four Match in Phoenix. “We’ve got one of the greatest practice facilities, but we are limited in the fact that we can’t actually play a round of golf,” said freshman Nick Voke. “There are ways to go around it, but having the ability

to have a round together and walk out and find your golf ball will be really nice.” The Cyclones are looking forward to connecting with alumni and readjusting to playing in warm weather in Scottsdale, but the trip could also help solidify the fifth starting position entering the spring season. In five fall tournaments, redshirt sophomore Collin Foster, redshirt junior Blake Waller and senior Zach Steffen split starts at the fifth spot, with Foster recording the best finish, a tie for 25th place at the VCU Shootout. “Blake Waller and Duncan Croudis are going to be heading down to the alumni event [along with the four starters],” Tank said. “Over break and through our training camp, they’ve kind of come out as the two frontrunners for that fifth position. We’ll see how they do in Arizona and kind of keep evaluating it.” Unlike Waller, Croudis has yet to make a start in the 2013-14 campaign, but has played in 49 rounds in his sophomore and junior seasons. Despite the uncertainty that has persisted in the fifth spot, Tank is pleased with the work the team put in during the offseason, particularly at the new practice facility. “We’re able to do more short game because of the indoor green. The technology with Trackman

and video, that was a definite bonus from what we’ve had in the past,” Tank said. “From an overall team-building perspective, just having our own facility, I think, has helped the team bond.” In the offseason, Tank also made it a point of emphasis to have the team prepared from a strength and conditioning standpoint, putting in an hour each day in the gym, six days per week. “We’ve been working really hard,” said junior Sam Daley. “It’s probably the hardest I’ve seen the team and myself work since we’ve been here. The offseason’s been very productive.” Tank even jumped in on occasion to work out with the team. “He did alright, he was talking the talk,” Daley said of Tank. “He said he was going to come, but didn’t come right away because he was sick, but he jumped in for a couple [sessions]. It was always good to have him there, [and] he helped us with our posture drills.” The hard work put in by the team, including Tank himself, has been a source of optimism as the Cyclones are striving to make it back to NCAA regionals after missing out in 2012-13. “I feel like we’ve done a lot of great work, I’m really happy with everybody’s attitude and effort so far since we’ve been back after break,” Tank said. “I think the offseason’s been really beneficial for us, so I’m expecting great things.”

Iowa State focuses on technique, performance By Harrison.March @iowastatedaily.com Coming off of its highest regular season score in nearly three calendar years, the ISU gymnastics team will head to DeKalb, Ill., to face Northern Illinois and Texas Women’s University in a tri-meet 1 p.m. Sunday. Last Friday evening at Hilton Coliseum, Iowa State (2-4, 1-1 Big 12) tallied season-high marks on all four events en route to a 196.025-194.175 conference victory. Senior Camille Santerre-Gervais also tied an ISU record on bars with a score of 9.950 and set a personal record of 9.825 on the beam. In the practices leading up to this weekend, Santerre-Gervais said her strategy for a repeat of last week’s performance is to just keep it loose. “We all have cues that we work on every day, like on beam I’m always counting or playing music in my head,” SanterreGervais said. “It’s just little things like that to keep it light and not think about how I’m going to do each skill as it comes.” Santerre-Gervais also noted that she is working on bringing the same game to the beam that she does to the bars. “I’m just as focused on bars now as I have been all year, but it would be great if I could do the same type of thing on beam this weekend,” Santerre-Gervais said. “I get a little bit into my head sometimes on beam and I think that’s why I’m not as

mentally strong there as I am on bars. It’s been hard, but last week I showed that I’m getting there.” Caitlin Brown has also been a key contributor for Iowa State this season, setting

new career-highs in the all-around event in four out of five meets. Brown, however, has only found herself on top of the proverbial podium once. She isn’t letting that discourage her, though.

“I honestly don’t even focus on my score, but I like to think that usually I’m in the running,” Brown said. “It’s motivating to know that you’re up near the top and that you’re doing well, but I don’t focus on my place. It’s like [head coach] Jay [Ronayne] always tells us: ‘Be ordinary, because if you do what you always do, you’ll be great.’” ISU coach Jay Ronayne is not worried about wins and losses either. He said that nobody on the team focuses too intently on the overall record, but rather they strive for flawless skills. “I don’t think about the record ever. Neither do any of the coaches, neither do the gymnasts,” Ronayne said. “What we all really value is the effort and technical perfection. If we go out there and everyone hits great routines, they stick all of the landings and we still lose, that definitely hurts. But if we take care of the technical aspects, well, the wins and losses will reflect that.” Because the score is entirely up to the judges, Iowa State is shifting last week’s goal of “195, 196 or better��� to something a little simpler: perform. “We’re not going to be hung up on scores, it’s all about personal performance and what we can do technically correct,” Ronayne said. “The score will take care of itself, so we’ve really got to focus on the technical parts throughout … It’ll be like a chain: If something at the beginning of the chain is crap, we can’t expect to find gold at the other end.”

Cyclones prepare for showdown against Florida Atlantic, Bethune-Cookman Tennis players ready for warm weather, outside play By Max.Dible @iowastatedaily.com The ISU tennis team returns back to Florida this weekend for consecutive showdowns with Florida Atlantic on Saturday in Miami and Bethune-Cookman on Sunday in Daytona Beach. The Cyclones opened the team season in Florida during mid-January with a 6-1 loss to Florida Gulf Coast. ISU coach Armando Espinosa hopes this time around the Cyclones will offer a more compelling performance. “We played that tournament after coming back from break,” Espinosa said. “We’re playing a lot better now.” The primary concern for the Cyclones is dealing with the weather, Espinosa said. This will also be the first time Iowa State has played outdoors since losing to FGCU

in January. “We are used to seeing the ball travel a lot faster, so hopefully we can adjust to the conditions,” Espinosa said. “It’s going to be different, dealing with the sun and the heat.” Freshman and No. 2 singles player Samantha Budai, who hasn’t lost a singles or doubles match since the team’s last jaunt to Florida, said the biggest obstacle she expects is the wind. Yet, the wind won’t be the only problem facing Budai this weekend, as she is also dealing with a nagging shoulder injury. “It is something like tendonitis,” Budai said. “I don’t know what it is. It’s been bugging me for a while, so I’ve been getting treatment. It’s feeling a little better now.” Senior Emma Waites has also been struggling with a shoulder problem, and because of that has been splitting time at the No. 3 doubles position with freshman Lydia Green. This is the second weekend in a row that Iowa State finds itself on a road trip,

but Budai said she is excited for this one. The day off between meets may provide some respite for a hurting Cyclone team. “We’re going to train,” Budai said. “But, I think we’ll hit the beach, which will be nice.” Espinosa echoed Budai’s sentiment. “I can’t wait for it,” Espinosa said. “We’re going to take advantage of it, play outside as much as we can, and [enjoy] the weather.” Iowa State will square off with Florida Atlantic at noon Friday, then head to Daytona Beach to meet BethuneCookman 10 a.m. Sunday.

Big 12 Championships loom over Cyclone swimmers, divers By Trey.Alessio @iowastatedaily.com With the Big 12 Championships two-anda-half weeks away, the ISU swimming and diving team is taking advantage of every single day of practice. “We do a lot of quality swimming everyday at practice and really work on the fine details,” said ISU coach Duane Sorenson. “We really get [the swimmers] to focus on the little things.” Yardage in the pool goes down and intensity goes up for the Cyclones as they prepare to head to Austin, Texas, for the Big 12 Championships on Feb. 26. Iowa State’s practices aren’t quite as long, heading into Big 12s, but the women competing against themselves everyday. Senior Imelda Wistey said the way she keeps focus during the layoff is by enjoying practice every day and getting a lot of rest. “We’re just being a little bit more relaxed; I think that helps a lot,” Wistey said. “My focus hasn’t really changed. My focus stays pretty consistent throughout the season. I just try to keep a level head. The only difference I feel is we’re doing less yardage and more explosive stuff.” After Iowa State’s first home win of the season against Kansas on senior day last weekend, the Cyclones have some momentum heading into the Big 12 Championships. “[The win against Kansas] was a good confidence booster that we can swim with them,” Sorenson said. “They beat us at their invitational back in November, and we turn around and beat them here. It just gives us that

Senior Imelda Wistey swims breaststroke and freestyle during practice on Dec. 2. Wistey uses practice to stay focused during layoff, and also gets a lot of rest every day.

‘Yeah, we can hang with them and we can compete with them.’” Freshman McKenzie Goudreau said the positivity the team got from the Kansas win can really be a confidence booster and advantage for Big 12s. “I think where our mindset is, is really positive after that [Kansas] win,” Goudreau said. “We can carry that through just by keeping our energy up, staying positive and relying on each other. It was a big win for us and a morale boost for everybody.” The Cyclones have high expectations heading into Big 12s. Sorenson said the team has expectations of finishing in the top three of the conference, but also recognizes the challenge TCU, Kansas and West

Virginia can provide. “It’s going to be four teams fighting it out for second. We could swim outstanding and get fourth, and we could swim outstanding and get second,” Sorenson said. “It’s just about everybody going out there and doing their best in each session and swimming a lot of lifetime bests.” The Big 12 Championships is a meet with seven sessions, and Sorenson believes the key to being successful is to remain focused and to swim in the present. He said if everyone gives their best effort each session, it will have a snowball effect and the meet will take care of itself. “This is the best time of the year,” Wistey said.

Rock-reggae bands to perform at M-Shop By Michael.Zanten @iowastatedaily.com Rock-reggae groups Passafire and Ballyhoo! are set to infuse the Maintenance Shop with some island grooves as part of their BrewHaHa tour 8 p.m. Feb. 20 with opening act Pacific Dub. Savannah, Ga.-based band Passafire fuses alt rock with reggae, dub and progressive musical styles to create a sound that should appeal to fans of Sublime and Bob Marley. “It’s reggae with a lot of rock; it’s rock with a lot of reggae mixed in,” said percussionist Nick Kubley of Passafire. “You could call it progressive reggae rock.” Passafire was started by Savannah College of Art and Design students Ted Bowne and Kubley as an extracurricular activity. “Me and Ted, the singer, went to college together,” Kubley said. “We just started playing together, and in 2006 my brother joined the band as a bassist; we got him out of high school.” Passafire’s band name was inspired by reggae’s legend Bob Marley. “There’s a Bob Marley album called ‘Catch a Fire’,” Kubley said. “We thought

that was cool, but we didn’t want to name it that exactly, so we went with Passafire.” Since Passafire’s beginning, they have progressed to touring about 150 shows a year. “We’ve played quite a bit with Rebelution, Slightly Stooped, Pepper, the Expendables and we’ve done some with 311,” Kubley said. Passafire has released five albums starting with their self-titled release in 2006 and leading up to to their most recent record, “Vines,” which was released in November. “The main difference with the latest album, ‘Vines,’ is that we got to make songs altogether, with all of us in a room,” Kubley said. “We just wanted to keep going in the direction that we started going in with ‘Start from Scratch,’ and we wanted to go in that direction further.” While energetic alternative group Ballyhoo! incorporates reggae sounds as well, they borrow more heavily from the punk spectrum. “It’s punk-rock-reggae type music,” said frontman Howi Spangler of Ballyhoo!. “A friend and I were trying

Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is an 8 -- Watch out for work-related accidents or misunderstandings. Allow your roots to be shaken and still issue new growth. Resolve conflicts as they sprout, and collect the fruits of your labor. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is an 8 -- Stop and think for a minute. If you can’t get what you need close to home, look farther away. The more difficult the challenge, the more rewarding the effort. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Today is a 6 -- Watch the competition. Travel beckons, but expect the unexpected. Keep your finances and home in order. If you move quickly, you can make a big profit. Practice looking at things in a new light. Romance is as close as your backyard.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) Today is a 6 -- Take one step at a time right now, stopping to work out kinks along the way. Be as practical as circumstances allow. Don’t be afraid to ask friends for help. Listening is key. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 6 -- It’s a beautiful moment for love, despite obstacles. The more you overcome, the better you feel. Don’t be afraid of mistakes ... the best stories come from risks taken, not the ones avoided. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is a 7 -- Things may be starting to cool down, but you like it hot right now. There are so many adventures to be had. Discover and release an old pretense for new freedom. Weed the garden.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is an 8 -- Accept full responsibility, as you pause and reflect. Temporary confusion distracts. Stick to your point. Replace or repair something broken. Give up something you don’t need to hold on to anymore. There’s good news.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 5 -- Celebrate your love openly. Add romantic touches at home, like flowers or dramatic lighting. Buy only what you truly need. Take a practical financial route. Provide motivation and the perfect setting.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is a 6 -- Keep enough on hand without wasting money. Use your own good judgment. If befuddled, wait it out. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Prepare for some rest and relaxation. Ah, love!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 6 -- Think outside your safety zone. Advance to the next level. Be the best. A female has the skinny. A slight disagreement’s no big deal. There’s more work coming in. Accept constructive criticism.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 6 -- Choose love. You’re gaining wisdom. Be meticulous but not picky. Learn a new skill from a teammate. Bring your best game. Exceed expectations. Ignore critics. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 7 -- Arrange priorities. Call if you’ll be late. Find what you need nearby. Gain more than expected, with a bonus. Take care not to provoke jealousies. It’s not a good time to expand or travel.
