ISU to propose land sales at regents meeting By David.Perrin During the next Board of Regents meeting on Feb. 22 and 23, Iowa State will propose its intentions to make numerous property and program changes. Iowa State’s first proposal will be to purchase the Tennis Performance Center that was finished in December. The Bruce McKee Indoor Tennis Complex was an initiated build after a donation of $500,000 and a $2 million investment by the university. After leasing the property since being finished, the university will propose plans to purchase the acre of land for $2.7 million during the regents’ meeting next week. Another proposal Iowa State will make is to cancel its Community College Policy Center and Information Infrastructure Institute. The third proposal to the board is in regard to an improvement project to Iowa State’s Reiman Gardens. The $3.4 million additions that are being funded by a private donation will include a series of rock walls, water pools and plants for the southwest corner of the garden. Finally, Franklin Park, which has been leased by the university since 1960, needs initial approval to be sold to the city of Ames. Last month, the city indicated that the purchase of the park, located two miles southwest of Campustown, would be for about $166,000.

Senate calls on university to stand behind undocumented students

By Alex.Connor Student Government held a contested discussion Wednesday evening where the Senate passed a resolution in support for Deferred Action for Children Arrival (DACA) and

undocumented students. The resolution requested that Iowa State President Steven Leath and other university administrators “do everything to the fullest extent of their legal capabilities to ensure continued support for undocumented and DACA students and their success.”

The resolution roots from the concern that many students have regarding the current administration under President Donald Trump. The resolution originally proposed that Iowa State de-


Lecturer: Administration ‘inexperienced’ By Brandon.Ghazali

More than a hundred people gathered in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union Wednesday night to hear from retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson during his lecture on redefining global and national security.

Wilkerson’s lecture focused primarily on the lack of experience of the officials who make up the Trump administration and what that could mean in both national and global scopes of policy and security. Wilkerson served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002-2005 and associate director of the State Department’s policy planning staff.

Referring to himself as a conservative, he spent much of the night criticizing politicians — including his fellow Republicans — and voicing concerns regarding the Trump administration. “A conservative believes that the best that’s been taught, said and done in the world should be conserved, and change only with great deliberation and circumspection,” Wilkerson said. “There isn’t a con-

servative in Washington.” Wilkerson said that thanks to a “vestige of slavery called the Electoral College,” Trump was elected with only 1 in 4 Americans’ votes. “Don’t tell me that the American people voted for Donald Trump, because they did not,” he said. “They voted through a system that is a vestige of the past that allows Wyoming, with 400,000 people, to have two senators in

the Senate, while California, the eighth largest economy in the world with millions of people, has the same representation,” Wilkerson said. An audience member asked what he would have in place of the Electoral College. “One person, one vote — in everything — that’s what democracy


Students, officials react to voter ID legislation By Alex.Connor College students move, a lot. This is why Iowa State political science professor David Andersen says the voter identification requirement being proposed by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate can create a big problem for university students. Under Pate’s proposal, registered voters who do not already have an Iowa driver’s license or state-issued ID will automatically be provided with a free voter ID card in the mail. “A lot of college students have a photo ID and a valid Iowa driver’s license, but it may have their home address or the apartment they lived in last year,” Andersen said. “College students are really hard to track because [their] address changes every year.” The legislation by Pate, which was unveiled in early January, hopes to implement tighter voter identification laws that include instituting electronic poll books at every Iowa precinct, requiring voter verification at the polling place that could entail signature verification and requiring an ID number for

voting via absentee ballot. The bill, which has been dubbed as election integrity legislation, inevitably hopes to eliminate cheating as described by Pate, and also “instill confidence in our voting system and let every Iowan know that their vote counts.” Andersen said there isn’t a reasonable explanation for why legislators are concerned with voter fraud and voter integrity. He pinpoints when voter identification, however, first entered the conversation as a controversial topic. “It goes back to a report filed in 2002. The Bush administration looked at election integrity and they had two very well-known people – former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State Jim Baker,” Andersen said. “They said we should have mandatory photo ID, but if we do this, the government has to send everybody in America a photo ID. “You can’t put burdens on voters to go out and get one, you have to give them.” Pate hopes to do this through his proposed legislation. However, student body presidents at the three Iowa regent universities have expressed concern with the bill, saying it could “significantly reverse the progress

that we made among college students this past election cycle.” A root of their concern involves the fact that under Pate’s proposed legislation, university-administered IDs will no longer be applicable when going to the polls. “When each student is already equipped with a form of credible identification, it is unnecessary and burdensome to require them

to jump through additional bureaucratic hoops to practice their fundamental right to vote,” the three student leaders – Cole Staudt, Rachel Zuckerman and Hunter Flesch – wrote in a letter midJanuary. Andersen backed this sentiment, but recognized several of the concerns with the way voter identification currently stands. “One of the things that is

kind of unique about this proposal is it says you cannot use a student ID, which is kind of unusual,” he said. “There’s some reason for saying this because if we’re doing this to protect the integrity of the ballot, you don’t want people who aren’t citizens to be able to vote. “Well, Iowa State has a lot of international students that come here and get a university ID even though they’re

not citizens.” Pate campaigned on voter identification when he was up for election in 2014, saying that he believes, “like a majority of Iowans,” that “we need a verifiable voter identification tool to be used when voters go to the polls to cast a ballot.” He argues that, unlike the lump that the majority of voter identification laws are immediately classified as, his bill hopes to more than prevent fraud but also “reduce human error.” “The last 16 years have seen a lot of suppressive legislation come out,” Pate said. “The Republican party has pushed some legislation that [invokes] fear of voter fraud that are totally unfounded and as a solution they propose things that wouldn’t actually prevent fraud, but it does suppress the vote. “It’s hard to justify that.” The bill – House Study Bill 93 – which was formally introduced to the Iowa Legislature on Feb. 8, will also not affect the way that college students can register and will offer the “exact same opportunities currently available,” Pate said in an email. “Iowa law requires Elec-

The competition is tailored to students working toward their Gerdin Citizenship Certificate and will satisfy an ethics requirement. In a case competition, students present their solutions for a case study to a panel of judges. Although competition subjects can vary, Friday’s event will center

around business ethics. Target presented a hypothetical challenge to participating students on Monday, and the students will present their work during the competition. Target asked participants to propose a strategy for the company to deliver on the “Expect More, Pay Less” brand while simultaneously avoiding gender stereotypes and bias. Each presentation will be eight minutes with five minutes of questions from judges after the students complete their presentations. Teams are rated on

their strategy, content, analysis of ethic, communication, visuals and professionalism. Various bonus points will be distributed. The first-, second- and third-place teams in the case competition will be awarded $1,000, $500 and $250, respectively. The teams that participate will be recognized after the competition concludes. The recognition will take place at noon Friday. Judges will also provide feedback to teams to aid them in future case competitions they compete in.

Sasa Radulovic and Johanna Hurme give architecture advice.

Architects encourage cutting interior space to grow exterior space

Emily Blobaum/Iowa State Daily

Joe the Barber cuts Dominic Lee’s hair Friday. Joe owns Campustown Cuts, which is located at 126 Welch Ave.

By Tristan.Wade The status quo is never easy to change. Johanna Hurme and Sasa Radulovic discussed Wednesday about how to go about changing the status quo in regard to architecture at Iowa State. The two are the founders of an architecture firm, 5468796 Architecture, which began in 2007 Winnipeg, Canada. Their discussion focused on a single theme: they believe students and future architects can shape design. Hurme began the talk by comparing the similarities of Winnipeg to cities in the Midwest. One of their main points was to show how in many of their designs, they have tried to cut down on interior space in order to expand exterior space. “It’s about the stuff that happens between buildings,” Hurme said. The firm believes by doing this, it can offset a trend in much of the United States in the design of apartment and condo buildings, where the living space is cramped, leaving little room for social gatherings. “There is this Finnish word, ‘piha,’ which sort of means collective outdoor space, and as kids we would say we were from the piha, not the building, and we wanted to impose that onto people,” Hurme, who is from Helsinki, Finland, said. A theme that Hurme and Radulovic also discussed was the idea of hyper-rationalism in architecture. “We often get accused of doing things for the sake of their aesthetic, but often that way is the best way to do it and [it] becomes necessary,” Hurme said. Radulovic presented a project they worked on that exemplified this thought. Their firm designed an elevated, circular condo building, with two stories of living space. Hurme said that while building an elevated condo may seem irrational, it ended up being the most efficient way for the building to come to existence. The architects also spent time discussing the business side of their firm and architecture in general. “It’s our [architects’] responsibility to know our value, so that we know when we should work for free, or when we should be paid, and how much,” Hurme said. Hurme advised students to avoid putting themselves into the two common boxes — the corporate architect and the struggling designer architect — and to be successful in whatever way they are able to. This facet of the discussion is what stood out to senior architecture student Amanda Hoefling. “A lot of the architects that come talk about their projects, but fail to talk about the business side, so I absolutely love how they mentioned that, because that’s real life,” Hoefling said. One of the most important topics Hurme and Radulovic talked about was the ability for anyone to make an impact, even in smaller areas such as Winnipeg, or even Ames and Des Moines. Radulovic said they believe many of their designs have had impacts in their community on social, environmental and economic levels. They have been able to be who they want to be and have success. “One thing that comes from the reality of living in a city with a smaller population is that the feedback you receive from users and people familiar with your project is very quick and direct,” Radulovic said. Throughout the lecture, the pair of architects stressed the importance of staying true to oneself and the ability each design student in the room had to impact the world. “Don’t abandon the place, make something out of it,” Hurme said.

Diversity in hair community Joe the Barber fills void of haircut service for students of color By Tyler.Lewis Hair, like people, comes in all shapes, sizes and styles. Hair, to many, can a be a firm part of their identity. Everyone wants to look good and feel good with a nice haircut, but in Ames, it is a challenge for students of color to find a place to get their haircut. Joe the Barber, owner of Campustown Cuts, fills that vacancy for the Ames community. Joe has lived in Ames for 10 years. He originally came to Ames for family-related reasons with the intention of attending Iowa State University, but he found a passion for cutting hair and decided to attend American College of Hairstyling in Des Moines. The people, Joe said, have been a big reason why he has stuck around so long in Ames. “They made me feel

wanted,” Joe said. “They kept saying, ‘if you leave, I’m going to leave.’” The community members and students who frequently visit Campustown Cuts have rallied around him. They let him know he is a go-to person when it comes to important events in their lives. With limited hair-grooming options for people of color in Ames, and a bigger market for multicultural people in Des Moines, the challenge has been getting barbers to Ames and keeping them around. “Being that there is only two of us, we won’t be able to cut everybody’s hair here in Ames,” Joe said. Joe has commissioned several barbers during his time owning Campustown Cuts, but it’s hard to keep them around. He explained that barbers in Des Moines do not realize the clientele they could have in Ames. Joe wants to change their attitude.

His goal is to expand his business and have more barbers readily available to the Ames community so students and residents will not have to drive to Des Moines for their hair needs. Joe said the other barbershops in Ames lack the ability to cater to people of color. He recalled a customer coming into his barbershop and telling him how another local shop told his customer that “they didn’t cut that type of hair.” Joe’s suggestion to other hair places in Ames is “to be more open to trying new things.” While being one of the only barbers in Ames who can style ethnic hair may be a challenge, Joe takes it in stride. Hasan Dennis-Pickett, senior in event management, repeated the same sentiments that Joe did. Dennis-Pickett learned to cut his own hair at a young age and picked it up as a hobby to help his friends

and family. Hasan hails from Lancaster, California, a community that has a multitude of barbershops that cater to underrepresented communities. The contrast between his hometown and Ames became apparent when he started attending Iowa State in 2013. “The lack of diversity in the Ames’ [barbershops] is something I noticed when I first got here,” Pickett said. Hasan and his friends didn’t know of many options in Ames. In turn, he started cutting his own hair, eventually cutting his friends’ hair as well. “The lack of diversity in the Ames’ [hair community] is something I noticed when I first got here” Pickett said he occasionally drives to Des Moines, like many students at Iowa State, to get a haircut. He believes the addition of barbers and salons to the Ames community will benefit students of color and local barbers.

Water quality improves slowly By Kyle.Heim Just as crops do not fully grow overnight, it takes time to convince farmers to uproot current practices in favor of reducing nutrient loads from their fields. The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), with the help of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, is continuing to move forward with the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy, which was released in 2013. The strategy includes a primary goal of achieving a 45 percent reduction in nitrogen and phosphorus loads discharged into Iowa waterways, according to strategy documents. While progress has been made, it’s been slow. In 2016,

Emily Blobaum/Iowa State Daily

In 2016, nitrogen reduction was about 1.5 percent, while phosphorous reduction was about 2.2 percent.

nitrogen reduction was about 1.5 percent, while phosphorous reduction was about 2.2 percent. Since the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy passed in 2013, no timetable has been set for reaching the 45 percent

reduction goal. “... That’s oftentimes one of the criticisms you hear from people concerned is, ‘OK, we have a goal but when will we reach that?’” said John Lawrence, director of Agriculture and Natural Resources Exten-

sion and Outreach and associate dean of CALS. “ ... We didn’t say we’ll break it up by if we just did 2 percent a year or 5 percent a year. “Nobody had any timelines. “We’re just trying to get farmers to adopt practices as quickly as possible.” Lawrence said farmers need to be comfortable and learn more about things like cover crops, changes in tillage and how they can work together to put in wetlands or edge of field practices. To track progress, the knowledge, attitude and behavior of farmers about making decisions on the land are measured. Then it takes inputs to influence farmers’ behavior, whether that’s through education, advertising, incentives or boots on the ground to help farmers evaluate their decisions.


Student group struggles to grow after revitalization By Alison.Boysen A group of eight students sat in a circle tossing and swirling purple stones in a wooden bowl, simultaneously learning a new game and a new language Wednesday night. The United Native American Student Association (UNASA) came together to learn and play games that originated from Native American tribes. UNASA is a group of fewer than 10, with the hopes of welcoming more students, both native and non-native. The game that was played was referred to as the “bowl game,” which was brought by a member of the Myaamia tribe, Haley Strass. Strass also taught

the group how to count to 10 in Myaamia. Storhm Henry, junior in apparel, merchandising and design, said the game was similar to one his tribe, the Meskwaki, played. He

also made the connection between Algonquin language and Myaamia, which are language cousins. Many Native American games are similar to one another, but have some

aspect that makes them different from one tribe to another. Native members of UNASA shared games that they had grown up playing and described the differences to the group. Out of the members present, there were six native students. They shared casual conversation about their tribes and customs and how their experiences differed. The group is small compared to the size of the organization five years ago. “We’re just starting new, starting fresh,” president Ivory Hanson said. Hanson and other cabinet members revitalized the group last semester after it lost support for many years. Hanson was inspired to start UNASA again after coming to Iowa State and

missing the community feeling back home. “It was a major culture shock. I wanted to help create a community for native students,” Hanson said. UNASA is not an activist club, but rather a cultural one that focuses on teaching aspects of Native American culture to all of those who want to attend. Hanson’s goal is to spread knowledge of native culture in activities. It has not been an easy road for UNASA. Not only has the group struggled to get larger numbers, but discrimination has also surfaced against its members. The first event the organization hosted took place in November. It was a table set up with flyers passed out on how to combat

the stereotypes of Native Americans. Treasurer Rachel Tucker can specifically remember two words that came from a stranger. “He called us ‘filthy savages,’” Tucker said. Since then, UNASA has not hosted any events but has focused on recruiting more members. Hanson has reached out to multicultural affairs officers, professors in American Indian Studies and has hung flyers around campus to promote the group. One thing other members think is holding back potential newcomers is the fact that they believe the club is only for native students. Although the group is predominantly native, it is welcome to students and faculty of all backgrounds.

Journey from Army to Ames By Emily.Schroer Sept. 11, 2001 - Four airliners are hijacked as part of a coordinated act of terror. Two are flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City. The third plane hits the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashes in a field in Pennsylvania. The day will forever live in infamy in world history. For Nick Grossman, multicultural liaison officer for the ISU Police Department, it was an event that inspired him to enter the armed forces. “That [9/11] was my personal spring board event,” Grossman said.

planes were hijacked as part of a coordinated attack on 9/11. Grossman felt a pull from his country, saying it was his time to serve. In 2004, Grossman enlisted in the U.S. National Guard. Grossman said there was a high possibility that

if 9/11 never happened, he probably would have never joined the Army. While enlisted, Grossman made his way through officer candidate school and became a second lieutenant as an intelligence officer, eventually ending his nine-year career ranked as a captain. Grossman described the job of an intelligence officer as very demanding and analytical. He learned that a “gut check” was needed in order to do a job like that. “I think I learned to question things more than I already did,” Grossman said. “When you are actually in other countries and seeing other cultures, you can’t just assume people are going to think the same as you.” Grossman was deployed to Iraq from December 2008 to January 2010 for force protection. He spent a lot of his time working with the base intelligence team to help in a counterintelligence format. Carrie Jacobs, deputy chief of Iowa State Police, said Grossman had become a

Mary Jones walked her audience through the artistic world of deep mapping Wednesday during her lecture, Ramble: Walking and Visual Journaling. Jones began by discussing her love for maps and creating a multi-perspective view of the city streets she walks. Jones uses places that mean the most to her as inspiration for her maps. Her alter ego, Harryette, and many other characters come to life in the pictures she creates. “I live in a body but believe in the mind,” Jones said. This is a concept she is constantly thinking about when she creates her artwork. Jones starts by picking a place that she will end up walking several times in order to collect photos, sounds, ideas, memories and all of the history around her. Harryette, a feature in many of her pieces, is described by Jones as a selfconscious girl who always wears a black and white dress with eyes drawn all over it. The eyes on the dress symbolize not only Harryette’s seeing eyes, but also signify that others are seeing her. “I created Harryette and it wasn’t long after that I realized I was her,” Jones said. This is a common theme in Jones’ work. She starts with a specific plan but lets her senses take over. “It’s really exciting to see the characters come to life,” said AJ Zandt, graduate student obtaining his master’s in fine arts. One of the bigger pieces Jones showcased during her lecture was titled “Lincoln Avenue” and is a deep map based off of the historical street in Chicago. Jones grew up in the city and has always had ties to Lincoln Avenue. In one instance, she de-

scribed the way her aunt used to talk about riding in streetcars, tracks that have now been smoothed over. Jones said that much like the paved over tracks, so are her maps. “I liked hearing the stories behind the prints,” Monica Pearson, graduate student in graphic design, said. “It is cool to get the background information on why she did what she did.” Jones went into detail about the process of creating the piece. The artwork is a combination of cartoonlike characters, writings and street maps created with multiple-layered perspectives. “I’ve always been vexed by a horizon line,” Jones said. “In a way I am destroying linear perspectives.” Jones recently completed a deep map of 14th Street. The street is located in Des Moines, which is where she currently resides. The finished piece was turned into a two-minute animation map that included Harryette, scribbled thoughts, reflections and photographs of the eightmile strip. The sounds range from Harryette’s humming to the recreated street noises. Although it has not been written in stone, Jones plans to create her next deep map with inspiration drawn from department stores.

In response to the current ruling to not reinstate the order, the administration has expressed disdain for the ruling. President Donald Trump declared the ruling unethical and questioned the motives of the judges in the 9th Circuit.


President’s recent immigration policy under fierce debate By Nolan.Wright


he most contentious of presidential executive orders this year has seemingly just come to a close. The nation’s fixation with the piece of legislation relating to President Donald Trump’s travel ban has been heated and multifaceted. The ethics of how we should treat our nation’s immigrants has been central to the public debate, but not the primary debate that faces the judges and lawyers entrusted with determining the conclusion to all this. While the merits of a debate based in how we ought to treat others is real, the constitutional debate of how we may treat others is the one that determines the outcome. The motives behind it are both selfish and altruistic. On one hand, the 9th Circuit judges repeatedly prodded as to how the citizens of Washington and Minnesota were affected by the practical loss of immigrants from

the seven blacklisted countries. The judges asked for proof, not of how much harm had been done to the immigrants and legal aliens, but how the barring of immigrants had practical harm to citizens. On the other hand, in the argument in defense of the ban, the case was made whether a) the bill targeted Muslims, or b) if any new information had been released to warrant new action. Now, in response to the current ruling to not reinstate the order, the administration has expressed disdain for the ruling both in its supposed disregard for safety and its lack of response to certain clauses that it believes ought to allow the president to bar aliens from entering the country under certain circumstances. Although President Donald Trump declared the ruling unethical and questioned the motives of the judges in the 9th Circuit, statements released by the administration imply that it plans to either rewrite the order or appeal it on the grounds that a practical error was made, and therefore the ruling wouldn’t apply to an altered version. The two aspects of the debate haven’t been perfectly articulated, but what should be drawn from this is how each form of this debate has

a role in society and law. Discussion over the morality and ramifications of the order — or a law that could replace it — isn’t one that can make it more or less difficult for the administration to act on its wishes. The next step that’s been taken by the Trump administration is the claim that under the statute 8 U.S.C. §1182(f), the president may exclude certain individuals as long as the attorney general and secretary of state agree that an alien has association with a terrorist organization and has intent of committing terrorist acts on U.S. soil. The natural response to this argument is to say that, for one, no reason was made to claim that living in the same country is sufficient for being associated with a terrorist. Furthermore, no evidence has been provided to show that citizens of these countries, by living there, are at high risk for intending to commit acts of terrorism. This sort of a debate skirts around the “why” of some pretty striking issues. It’s extremely important, possibly more important, to show and understand compassion for the kinds of people suffering from these issues. But the social debate of whether the immigration ban is moral won’t make it go away.

Playboy returns off path with re-reboot By Angelica.Lawson There are few magazines that have stood the test of time — Cosmo, Elle, Vogue and Playboy. Playboy has been in the publishing world since 1953, and since its first issue, it has been the leading “gentleman’s entertainment” magazine. In 2016, Playboy announced that it would be rebrand its magazine, and on Monday, Cooper Hefner, chief commercial officer, introduced another rebrand of the iconic brand. Hefner said Playboy magazine will reclaim its identity and reintroduce nudity to the magazine. In 2015, the magazine made a change to a PG-13 magazine that would no longer feature nudity. Many fans of the Playboy brand were not too thrilled with the initial announcement in 2015. The change was a shock considering the magazine’s roots in nudity. The rebrand was not well received. The Playboy that many had grown up with would be no more. Now, Hefner believes nudity was never the problem and instead thinks that the way Playboy incorporated nudity was dated and did not appeal to its target audience. Hefner was very vocal about his feelings toward the rebrand of his father’s magazine. The front cover of the newest reboot will hit shelves Feb. 28, 2017. Some things will be back,

Vote in StuGov elections, then stay involved Last week marked the kickoff of the Student Government elections at Iowa State. The campaigns will continue for four weeks and end with the two election days, March 7 and 8. Three teams are running for president and vice president. During this time of year, students will witness numerous chalkings around campus, and candidates will try to talk to as many students as possible. But once the campaigns end, everyone usually goes their own way. Students go back to mind their business, leaving the winners of the elections to work alone, or with the “elite” of our community. Unfortunately, some think that casting their vote is all they are supposed to do when it comes to Student Government participation. This is perhaps one of the most difficult challenges that the Student Government is facing: a lack of involvement. The executive branch and the Senate are trying hard to build bridges between the Student Government and students in order to get them more involved. Because many do not know what the Student Government does and is capable of, the rate of involvement remains low. Even in the election, the turnout is typically less than 30 percent. The fact is that being involved in, or at least paying a fair amount of attention to the Student Government is important not only during election time but also throughout the entire year. The Student Government serves as a representative for students and as their main channel of communication with the administration. It also has an annual budget of more than $2 million, distributed to student organizations and other services on campus. The budget is collected from the $36 “Student Activity Fee” that every student on campus pays per semester. Students can have a say in how the money is used. The Student Government funds dozens of clubs and organizations every year. It also proposes and funds some projects to improve the campus. Students need to be proactive and step forward. You can suggest ideas, propose projects or share thoughts on how to improve the university in general. Considering the huge budget in the hands of the Student Government, students must pay more attention to the organization and support it by getting involved. We all can work together to ensure that the money is being used for the good of the student body. We all can work together to use the money to expand and support our organizations and to build an inclusive community.

Editorial Board

including the much missed nudity, but readers should expect a newer, fresher nudity style from Playboy. The phrase “Naked is Normal” will be featured on the cover, replacing the phrase “Entertainment for Men.” When the magazine announced that it would be remove nudity from its content, I supported it. As the world changes and things that were so easily accessible before are now readily available at a much lower cost than the magazine, a rebrand seemed like a good option for Playboy. It seems that the PG-13 approach did not help address the current problems plaguing the

publishing industry. Hefner, who is passionate about nudity not being the problem, nevertheless seems ready to give Playboy a much needed facelift. Interviews, columns and comics will continue to be featured in the magazine. Hefner announced that Playboy will bring back some old regulars from Playboys of the past, like “The Playboy Philosophy” and “Party Joke.” It hasn’t been revealed how the new Playboy will incorporate nudity, but let’s hope for the sake of financial success that the magazine recaptures its past audience and captures a new audience. Rejuvenating a brand that

has as rich of a history as Playboy is a daunting task. Making the magazine PG-13 seemed like a good move to me. It allowed the magazine to be more visible on social media platforms, and it gave it access to a younger demographic. Before the launch of the PG-13 version of Playboy, the company launched a “work friendly” app. This was the first of the major changes to Playboy. For whatever reason, Playboy has decided that the magazine should not continue down its current path, but I think this is the answer to the problems the brand is having. A fresh take on a less-thanoriginal idea could really improve the company’s standings.

Solomon Young puts up career game against Kansas State

Solomon Young grabs a rebound in the first half against Kansas State on Wednesday at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kansas. Young recorded 12 rebounds in the 87-79 Iowa State win.

Freshman records 18 points, 12 rebounds in 87-79 Iowa State win By Luke.Manderfeld MANHATTAN, Kansas — The Cyclones could get used to these comfortable victories. After beating Oklahoma on Saturday by 16 points, the Cyclones came out and took care of business yet again against Kansas State — but this time it was on the road. Iowa State (16-9, 8-5 Big 12) never relinquished the lead after a fast start in Manhattan, Kansas, holding off the Wildcat runs to beat Kansas State (16-10, 5-8 Big 12) 87-79 on Wednesday night at Bramlage Coliseum. The Wildcats threatened to pull the win right from under the Cyclones, but Iowa State never let them get within five points. That may not have necessarily have been the case earlier this season. “I think we are playing better than we have played most of the year right now,” coach Steve Prohm said. “We have lost a lot of close games. I have learned a lot with this team trying to figure them out and they have probably tried to figure me out throughout the year. I think we are

in a good place right now if we can keep everybody focused on the right things.” The team’s resiliency down the stretch may be in large thanks to freshman Solomon Young. Young, who made his second career start at center for the Cyclones, put up 18 points and 12 rebounds — eight of which were offensive — in a career-high 33 minutes. He added a couple of blocks and a steal. While Young had the best game of his young Iowa State career, it would be hard to tell after the game. He spoke softly — like he had before the lights shined on his face — offering just one-sentence answers. “[I] just come with the mentality to just come out here and be a beast,” he said with a smile. In Young’s first career start in a win against Oklahoma on Saturday, he racked up eight points with two blocks — he was a force on defense. The performance was a big uptick from the team’s two other centers — Merrill Holden and Darrell Bowie — who have been everything but consistent this season. Prohm said Monday he was kicking himself by waiting this long to start Young. After tonight, those feelings undoubtedly remain. “Proud of [Solomon Young,]” Prohm said. “Probably should be mad at me because I wasn’t playing him earlier, but hopefully he’s over it.”

Young has been humble while waiting for his chance to start, saying he would be ready when his number was called. Now that it has, he has been a more-than-welcome addition to the lineup while the team is in the middle of a stretch run. “He saved my butt a few times on missed layups,” point guard Monte Morris said. “I thank you for that. I know I’ll get it on film with coach. He made some great hustle plays; I know the team needs something like that from somebody. And he was ready when his number was called, and that’s all you can ask for.” While Young was the standout performer, Iowa State got contributions from all across the lineup. Froward Deonte Burton, who has been playing his best basketball over the past few games, put up 17 points and six rebounds. Naz Mitrou-Long added 16 points and five rebounds. But the focus is and will remain on Young if he keeps up his strong performances. And in a lineup full of seniors, Young is a fresh face that doesn’t play like his age might suggest. “He was special,” Mitrou-Long said. “Not because of the little ones he was getting, but because of his force on the court. It really felt like that was missing. Dominant defensively. Dominant offensively. Big tip-ins at the end, man. He didn’t look like a freshman today and hasn’t in the couple prior games.”

Bridget Carleton dribbles the ball down the court against Texas Tech on Wednesday at Hilton Coliseum. Carleton led the Cyclones in their 79-68 win with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Buckley’s fourth-quarter surge leads Iowa State past Texas Tech By Tyler.Julson The Iowa State women’s basketball team grabbed a 79-68 victory despite a late comeback attempt from the Red Raiders. The Cyclones (14-11, 5-9 Big 12) were back at Hilton for the first time in two weeks to take on Texas Tech (11-14, 3-11 Big 12). The game got off to a slow start for the Cyclones. At the end of the first quarter, Iowa State was down by four points (14-18) on 6-of-17 shooting. But when the second quarter began, the Cyclones started with a 14-2 run and never relinquished the lead from there. On top of an important win, senior Seanna Johnson also celebrated a historic milestone of her own. Johnson became the fastest player in school history to pull in 1,000 career rebounds. Johnson needed eight at the beginning of the night, and after one half of play, only had one rebound to her credit. A big second-half performance propelled her to the milestone as she finished the game with nine rebounds, on top of 15 points and three assists. “It feels good, but all the credit goes to my teammates and my coaches,” Johnson said. “They have believed in me since I got here and they trusted me to be a part of the program. I just think with the help from them I wouldn’t have been able to get this far.” Though the Cyclones never gave up the lead after regaining it early in the second

quarter, the game had its fair share of excitement. Twice in the fourth quarter, Iowa State saw its lead dwindle to just five points after being up by as many as 15. Junior guard Jadda Buckley was not about to let the lead slip away, however. Buckley entered the final quarter with just eight points, but stepped up when the team needed her most. Buckley scored 12 of her 20 points in the fourth quarter alone and secured the win, going 3-of-4 from the free-throw line. “This is one of those games where our big three, [Seanna Johnson, Bridget Carleton and Jadda Buckley] really dictated the flow of the game,” Fennelly said. “We made just enough shots … that’s the nature of this game, can you make a play to stem the tide a little bit? And I thought for about a four-minute period in the fourth quarter we did that.” Buckley and sophomore guard Bridget Carleton each finished the game with 20 points, leading all scorers. Carleton also finished the game with 12 rebounds and four assists, notching her first double-double of the season. After the game, Carleton talked about what the win means for the team and how it motivates then as they get closer to postseason play. “This game was huge for us, especially playing at home,” Carleton said. “Its’s a win we needed, playing in front of our fans. They deserve to see our best and that’s what we gave them today. Especially for building that momentum going into postseason play, the Big 12 tournament, this is a big win for us.”

M-SHOP TO MAINSTREAM Twenty One Pilots performed at a sold-out show Oct. 5, 2014, in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union as part of their Quiet is Violent tour.

By Caroline.Shaw

a hand in organizing the band’s shows in the Maintenance Shop and the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. By the time it came to play at the Great Hall only two years later, it was clear things were taking off for the local stars. “The thing that I was impressed with was people started lining up for the show that morning,” said Corey Brietzke, SUB national events director at the time. Fans clad in Twenty One Pilots gear wanted to ensure they had the best spot possible for the show that night. Twenty One Pilots fans are some of the fiercest in the music scene. From buying large amounts of merchandise to following tours to dressing up as the band members, there is little they will not do. “They have a very loyal and rabid fan base,” George Micalone, SUB director of student activities, said. This year on the Emotional Road Show tour, fans lined up outside of venues two days before the show in order to get a coveted spot on the barricade. The fan base was once regarded as respectful, but that impression has transformed.

In four years, the few, the proud and the emotional have become the many, the loud and the fiercely loyal. Twenty One Pilots is a unique band that grew from having a small following in the Midwest to being an international sensation. A span of only four years saw them go from Iowa State University’s Maintenance Shop to an international arena tour. The Columbus-born alternative band does not fit into any one box. It draws from several genres, including rock, hip-hop, reggae and pop. “They appeal to such a broad variety of demographics, which I think helps them,” said Jim Brockpahler, entertainment programs coordinator for the Student Union Board. Despite this wide appeal, Twenty One Pilots did not start on a path to mainstream stardom. The band got its grass-roots style start in Columbus, Ohio, with little help from social media. In 2012, when it performed in the Maintenance Shop, only about 30 people attended, said Brockpahler, who had

Fans tell stories of being pushed to the ground, kicked and punched by other fans trying to fight their way to the stage. This change may be due to the speed with which Twenty One Pilots rose to fame. With the scale of the band’s success, fans may be losing touch with the songs’ messages of respect, devotion and pensiveness. The desperation may, however, also be a reaction to the lyrical content in a different way. “I think part of that is because Twenty One Pilots’ music is so relatable,” Brietzke said. “I think that’s how they started getting a cult following and then took off from there.” There are some who view Twenty One Pilots’ mainstream success since the time of that small show in the Maintenance Shop as a pull away from the character of the band. Others see it as an escalation of a mentality that has always existed and as a testament to the way the band’s music can unite a vast number and variety of people. Twenty One Pilots received a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy Award on Sunday for its hit song “Stressed Out.”




By JP.Crouse With all the new original shows and movies Netflix is producing, some are hit or miss. One of the most recent shows is “Santa Clarita Diet.” It stars Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo. The show’s creator is Victor Fresco. This is his second project, with “Better Off Ted” already under his belt. “Santa Clarita Diet.” is about a middle-class family that seems to have a normal life in California, but all of the sudden something happens and the family will never be the same (no spoilers). After the first scene of the show, I knew it was going to be tough to get through the rest of the episode. From the opening scene, the show seemed like it was trying to shove jokes down the viewer’s throat. Many of them fell

Alternative rock band Young the Giant will perform at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines on Thursday night.

Young the Giant provides ‘Cough Syrup’ for flu season Indie-rock band to perform at Hoyt Sherman By Parker.Reed Since 2011, Californian indie-rock band Young the Giant has been hitting the alternative airwaves with force starting with its first two singles, “My Body”

and “Cough Syrup,” which peaked at No. 4 and No. 2 on the U.S. Alternative charts, respectively. Young the Giant will bring its hit songs to Des Moines at 8 p.m. Thursday at Hoyt Sherman Place. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased on the Hoyt Sherman website. The group’s latest release, “Home of the Strange,” was met with high acclaim from fans of the band and featured the singles “Something to Believe In” and






flat and came off as the writers being lazy. When a show is rated TV-MA, mature audiences don’t want to hear fart jokes made for little kids. But there was a plus side to the show. Barrymore gives it her all. With a somewhat weak supporting cast around her, it seems like she knew it was her show and wanted people to remember her

in it. After watching this show, it seems like Netflix will throw anything out there and hope people will watch it. This show is lazy, not really funny, gross and somewhat sexist. If you are looking for a show to watch, you can pass on this one.

STUGOV p1 clare itself a sanctuary campus, but was later amended to implore the Board of Regents reaffirms its commitment to providing the opportunity for all students, including undocumented and DACA students, to receive an education. The definition of a sanctuary campus varies but can be summarized as a college or university in the United States that adopts policies to protect undocumented students and to not allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers onto campus without a warrant. It also includes the refusal of campus police to enforce immigration law. Several senators and students raised concerns with different aspects of the resolution, citing the legality and morality of it. Some saw issues relating to federal funding. “We already are a sanctuary campus, our law enforcement does not put any effort to check your legal status here at Iowa State,” Austen Giles, sophomore in public relations, said. “I know a question a lot of people have is where is the federal funding in this? Is it at risk?” However, it was noted as a point of information that Iowa State is not breaking

any laws. Relating to specific wording of the resolution, one student raised concern that the senators were keeping students “under the rug” about what was going on regarding the resolution. Sen. Maria Archevald rebutted this claim, assuring the students and senators in attendance that Student Government is “doing anything within our power to stand up for you and be on your side.” Archevald said that while Student Government stands as a liaison between students and administration, the resolution is still only a recommendation being made to university officials. Several amendments were made to the wording of the resolution, including a call to strengthen the phrase asking university administrators to “do everything in their power” to “do everything to the fullest extent of their legal capabilities.” “I am a Ph.D. student and I read into words… everything in their power could mean nothing,” Vivek Lawana, the president of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, said. “Everything in their power means everything or nothing.” Several students were in opposition to the resolution in fear that they believe it

is not fair that their funding could be taken away because of the request for protection for the undocumented and DACA students. Collin Harris, sophomore in aerospace engineering said, “I don’t think it’s worth making a stand and risking university safety.” Michael Norton, university counsel, said that he believes there is no indication for a risk of funding.

Sen. Eric Schultz said that something he had hoped to possibly see in the resolution was helping undocumented students pave their way to citizenship. Sharing his family history, Anthony Chavez, junior in political science who also identifies as a second generation immigrant and conservative, described why he felt that Student Government should oppose the

resolution. Chavez said he felt that he thinks the Senate is handling the situation in the wrong ways, and that the resolution is not going to do a lot. He said that he felt more attention should be put on resources to help undocumented students become citizens. On the bill as a whole, Sen. Humair Nadeem questioned the motive of the

resolution. “A lot of these [undocumented] students are paying out of their pockets. They are putting money into the system,” Nadeem said. “Should we support them? Yes. “If they’re not breaking any rules… I don’t see why there is a problem.” Reporting contributed by Danielle Gehr and Alli Weaver.

Helmers, associate professor and extension agricultural engineer. “I think the Nutrient Reduction Strategy is critical to Iowans as there is a strong desire for improved water quality,” Helmers said. “To achieve the desired outcomes requires a great deal of conserva-

tion practice implementation. The implementation of these practices will need nearly all farmers to implement some new practices.” The strategy is not just limited to agricultural practices. It also involves cities and factories across the state. It even relates to people

living in small towns who may own lawn, where nutrients can be lost to the system, and to parks in the community. Lawrence believes the strategy is off to a good start but needs to move at a faster pace. It will take time to change behaviors and attitudes, but

once more farmers get comfortable with the technology and practices after using them for a year or two, and once more resources from the state are provided, the process should speed up. “I think our pace will quicken, I’m very hopeful that it will, I think it needs to happen,” Lawrence said.



tion Day registrants to show proof of identification and proof of residence, but the ID cards must contain an expiration date,” he said. “Student voters will be treated just like every other Iowan. If they need a voter ID card, we will supply them with one for free.” This, however, was also a concern for the three regent student leaders, who argued that while “the proposal claims that students may receive a free voter ID card in the mail if they do not have a driver’s license, these free IDs are only available to existing voters.” Ultimately, Andersen said the proposed legislation is not as strict compared to what other states have implemented or are hoping to, but said it boils down to what is inevitably drafted by legislators. “I don’t know what our legislators are going to do, it hasn’t come up yet,” Andersen said mid-January. “I’m interested to see if this bill morphs into a mandatory photo ID for everyone, college IDs don’t count, [then]

He is actually going to tell me what he thinks,” Jacobs said. Jacobs also said having military experience in the department helps create an educational resource.

Grossman has also worked closely with the ISU Veterans Center as a liaison. Both offices stay in contact with each other and create resources for both communities. “The veterans community is a tight-knit community,” Jathan Chicoine, veteran services coordinator, said. “[Grossman’s] background as a veteran was something very meaningful to us.”

our history.” Wilkerson joked that he’d won money thanks to a bet that Michael Flynn, who was recently forced to resign from his position as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, would be the first to go. Wilkerson said he hopes the administration does well, but that he is “not at all confident” that’s going to happen. He also said he believes there is a 50-50 chance that Trump could be impeached. Important foreign policy points that Wilkerson said people are concerned about under the Trump administration include China’s presence in the South China Sea, the Iran Nuclear Deal and a loss of confidence overseas in the American dollar, which he said has nothing backing it except the U.S. military. Wilkerson hopes that politicians will spend less

money on preventing existential threats like terrorism and more on combatting the effects of climate change. “Tell me why we spend 2 trillion of your dollars to combat a threat that has the same potential to kill you as a lightning bolt,” he said. Wilkerson said the best way to make a change is to vote out the current members of Congress. “I don’t believe there is a single senator who can’t be unseated,” Wilkerson said. He said that personally, he would get every person in Congress unelected who didn’t look like they were doing the right thing, and that he’d keep on doing it “until they got the right person in there.” Wilkerson’s lecture was a part of the World Affairs Series. Upcoming lectures can be found on the Committee of Lectures website.

it’s pretty obvious what’s happening.” The proposal was originally estimated to ring in at a price tag of $1 million, but was later lowered to roughly $300,000. According to a draft of the bill, the legislation would appropriate $550,000 from the state general fund to the revolving loan fund. Sen. Herman Quirmbach, D-Ames, said in late-January that while he has yet to see a formal draft of the bill, he believes that a dollar figure of $300,000 is too low of a number when considering the logistics of the proposal.

Quirmbach said from his understanding of the bill, it is a “complete wastage of public dollars if imposing new requirements makes it difficult or obstructs [voters] right to vote.” Pate combats this through a press release on his website: “The Election Integrity Act recognizes that the security of elections should never be taken for granted … [the bill] is about making sure no fraud will take place in the future. “Iowans protect what we value, and we value our elections.”

creative ideas and research to lure in future interns and employees, while the students realize that they have a very big role to execute. “This is a great experience,” Hailey Warren, senior in advertising, said. Warren, Seely and other members of the Out of the Box advertising team can credit the group’s teamwork for their potential success. “Everyone has their niche,” said Kate Wallner, senior in advertising. The members of Out of the Box strive to communicate by writing summaries of their meetings, talking

through group chat and working with Google documents. “[We] are constantly in contact,” said David Coconate, senior in advertising. They hope to gain experience and impress Rockwell Collins. “[We] want to give them material they didn’t know they wanted,” Coconate said. Bittner also believes that the rest of Rockwell Collins will be impressed by the advertising class as much as she is. “I’m already excited to see how you all will spice up our brand,” Bittner said.

Grossman is also a great resource to her personally. When Jacobs’ family suffered the loss of a family member who was killed in Afghanistan a few years ago, Grossman became a person she turned to for all of her questions. “It was really helpful to have Nick because he explained to me the process and why that mission failed or why they did things the way they did,” Jacobs said.

is,” Wilkerson said. The audience member countered that there’s no such thing as a “pure” democracy. “I agree with you, but you can be a hell of a lot closer than we are,” Wilkerson said. Wilkerson said the United States is closer to being taken into a monarchy since Alexander Hamilton with President Trump. “That’s what I see, is a narcissist assembling a crew around himself that really brings into question some major points that my students have brought up during the past 30 years of my educational experience,” he said. “And that is the most dangerous aspect of any post-World War II presidency is inexperience. “This is the most inexperienced administration in
