Government of the Student Body

Platforms presented

Chinese students study stateside By Whitney Sager Daily Staff Writer If it seems like there are more Chinese students at Iowa State, it is true. Enrollment of undergraduate international students is on the rise, particularly students coming from China. “We do have more foreign students here than we’ve had in a long time,” said Patricia Parker, assistant director of admissions. Parker said the number of Chinese undergraduates enrolled at Iowa State increased by 21.1 percent between the 2007–’08 and 2008–’09 academic years. Parker said student visas are easier to get because U.S. universities told state department officials that academically qualified students should not be denied student visas. “We would put all this time and money into welcoming Chinese students, getting them to apply, generating interest, and then they go to get their vi-

Luke Roling and his running mate Nate Dobbels and their opponents, Chandra Peterson and her running mate Jacob Wilson, all stayed true to their respective platforms during the debate. The first question asked presidential and vicepresidential hopefuls how they determine success. Peterson said the easiest way to determine success is through tangible objects, things you can see, touch and feel — such as the banners in Campustown that were put up by Vice President of Student Affairs Thomas Hill’s office at the beginning of the year and the banners that were funded by the Ames

goals throughout the process. Roling measures success by using one of the three “p’s” from his campaign: progress. “I measure success is by the progress we’re making and by setting [attainable] goals,” Roling said. Dobbels said he is willing to “go above and beyond” and prove he can do things others thought he might not have been able to accomplish. Another question asked the candidates how they plan on expanding communication. Roling wants to expand communication within the GSB as well as around campus. Dobbels said the two already have established many forms of communication with groups outside the GSB, and plan on continuing their development. Peterson plans on two different ways of communicating with students.


Student Activities

Sexy salsa invigorates evening By John Lonsdale Daily Staff Writer My feet were slow, discombobulated; so was my mind until Marielle Green, senior in apparel merchandising, design and production, salsa danced into my view. With her curly blond hair freely falling, Green grabbed hold of my hands and asked, “Have you ever done this before?” Salsa Dancing with Salsa Brosas, an event last Friday night in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union, was the first of its kind hosted by the Student Union Board and ISU After Dark. An alternative to the regular Friday night festivities, the event featured a live band and an instructor who taught moves and then let the band play while attendees used what they just learned. Soon enough, my left foot went forward and back, then my right

backward and forward. The second move I learned was somewhat of a side-to-side combination — left out, left in, right out, right in. A spin and a few hand and arm movements known as a hair-comb [or something similar] later, I was set to dance like there’s no tomorrow to the music of Salsa Brosas with my partner Marielle. With the beat of bongo drums, the rhythm of a keyboard, the yelps of a trombone and Latin fever in the air, Salsa Brosas — a band based out of Minneapolis, Minn. — played on as more than 30 couples danced in lines spread out across the light-wood floors of the Sun Room. Although there were a few couples who seemed like they had done this before, there were also many couples who were there for the first time. Annette Ivanisevic, freshman in pre-architecture, and Brady Greer, freshman in engineering, were self-

proclaimed amateurs. With beaming smiles and laughter, the couple danced its way through the newlylearned steps little by little. “We just really wanted to have a good time. It’s something different, and we’re having so much fun,” Ivanisevic said. “Yeah ... and we really wanted to experience the romantic side of dance ... this is some hot and sexual stuff,” Greer said jokingly. Kelly Siebert, senior in animal ecology and long-time gymnast, had taken a few ballroom classes before but had never salsa danced. “I really love to dance,” Siebert said. “Any free opportunity to dance like this and I take it. What’s nice about Iowa State is that it has a good dance program, and this is fun because it’s a romantic and intimate dance between you and your partner. Plus, the music is a lot of fun, too. You can really

get into it.” MaryBeth Konkowski, special events director for Student Union Board, is proud of SUB’s activities. “As a SUB member, it offers a wide variety of activities for students to enjoy,” Konkowski said. “This is the first event we’ve had like this. We’ve never done it before. An event like salsa dancing provides an alternative to the normal weekend night and it could be a great date night, too. It’s just a great opportunity to learn something new and exciting and is so much fun.” As the winter wind polarized the air outside, things kept heating up inside as dancing feet slid across the floor. “Hey, you’re pretty good at this,” Marielle said, most likely out of pity. “Try a spin,” she said, confident in my ability. “I’m following you ... ” I spun – left forward, left back, right back, right forward.

Information, options presented concerning sexuality situations By Justine Scattarelli Daily Staff Writer Whether you are currently sexually active, considering being sexually active or planning to be sometime in the future, it is important to know the available resources. According to a 2007 study conducted by the University of Minnesota, 72.1 percent of about 10,000 college students surveyed reported having been sexually active within the past 12 months. Beyond the Thielen Student Health Center and Mary Greeley Medical Center, there are other resources in the Ames community that specialize in pregnancy and sexual health resources. The Ames Center of Planned Parenthood at 2530 Chamberlain St. has been in the area for over 15 years. Planned Parenthood offers a variety of sexual health services involving pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease testing. Jenna Hughs, health educator for Planned Parenthood, said its mission is to provide woman with as much information as possible about all different options. Planned Parenthood provides support for issues from deciding if or when you’re going to have sex to which birth control methods is best for you. The organization provides information about many issues, such as sexuality and STDs, in order for women to “empower themselves with knowledge,” Hughs said. Planned Parenthood offers 13 different types of birth control as well as emergency contraception — such as the morning-after pill — on a walk-in basis. Planned Parenthood also offers pregnancy tests without an appointment. According to its Web site, upon a positive pregnancy test you “have a chance to speak with a trained staff person about all of your choices: abortion, adoption and parenting.” The Ames center offers services to pregnant women choosing any option. Planned Parenthood works closely with an adoption service in Des Moines that will come to Ames when someone is interested in adoption. The Ames center of Planned Parenthood offers medication abortion up to nine weeks after the start of the last menstrual period. For patients further along in the pregnancy, Planned Parenthood offers referrals for clinical abortions and abortion counseling. Planned Parenthood offers STD pre-

vention resources including safer sex education, condoms and vaccines for hepatitis B and the Human papillomavirus. According to the Center for Disease Control, in 2008 there were 6,866 new cases of chlamydia and 1,052 cases of gonorrhea in Iowa in people aged 15–24. Planned Parenthood offers testing and treatment for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis and herpes. The Ames clinic also offers HIV testing and diagnosis, as well as treatment referral. Hughs hopes Planned Parenthood can rely on its reputation to make people feel comfortable when they walk through the door. “Whether male or female, we don’t always necessarily feel comfortable to ask people questions about our sexuality,” Hughs said. “I always felt that Planned Parenthood was a place where I could go and not feel judged because I have question about something.” Planned Parenthood offers service though private insurance and the Iowa Family Planning Network — a program providing free family planning services, including birth control, pregnancy tests and STD tests and treatment to Iowa women. Hughs said payment for uninsured patients is more of a sliding scale fee, and in some cases only a donation is asked for. “If you don’t have health insurance, [payment is] based on what you make. If you’re a student and you’re not making a lot, we’ll take that into consideration,” Hughs said. The Birthright center has been in Ames for 35 years. The sign outside its small, second-floor office at 108 Hayward Ave. reads: “Pregnant? Need Help?” Birthright is a national organization that aims to help all women through unplanned pregnancies. They provide free pregnancy tests, emotional support, information and referrals. Birthright offers free pregnancy testing without an appointment. It takes three or four minutes to get the results. They also have a maternity-lending closet and referral services to doctors, housing and adoption. “Everything is free. There are no strings attached this way,” said Kathy Bunting, director of Birthright in Ames. Birthright also provides information about programs such as Woman, Infants, Children, which provides nutritional services, including education, health services

and supplemental nutritional foods to lowincome pregnant women and mothers. Bunting said choices regarding what to do about a pregnancy are personal decisions. “We are a pro-life agency and we do encourage life and do believe all life is special, no matter how it’s conceived or when it’s conceived, but in the end it’s her decision,” Bunting said. “We can give her any kind of information she wants healthwise, then she has to decide.” One ISU student was willing to provide an explanation and opinion on her experiences at both Birthright and Planned Parenthood. Sara Hathaway, sophomore in animal ecology, has had experiences at both Planned Parenthood and Birthright. She has noticed positive and negative aspects of both organizations. After a late period, Hathaway and her boyfriend went to Birthright for a pregnancy test because they thought it would be the fastest option. Hathaway was asked to provide a urine sample and was then brought into a waiting room and her boyfriend was told to wait outside. Hathaway said there was a timer in the room where she waited, counting down until the test results were ready. “It was really impending,” she said. While she waited, the woman asked about her life plans and if she had room for a child. “She told me her life story about how she had an abortion and she regrets it, and about how they love life there and they’re trying to preserve it,” Hathaway said. Hathaway didn’t know they were a prolife organization until she went there. Since the results came back negative, she didn’t consider the other resources offered by Birthright. Hathaway said she appreciated that Birthright’s services were free and could tell they genuinely cared about her decision. She said her experience at Planned Parenthood was more neutral. She had a pregnancy test done at Planned Parenthood’s Ames center as part of a checkup. Hathaway said it often takes a long time to get in to the clinic because it’s busy, and on a couple occasions they seemed unorganized and to have mixed up her records. More information about the organizations can be found at their Web sites, www. and

Glass atrium ceiling collapses on guests NEW YORK — Ice broke through the ceiling of an atrium at the Sony Building in New York City, showering glass over partygoers, leaving 10 with minor injuries, authorities and a witness said. Ice left by last week’s storms fell from the 32nd floor of the building on Madison Avenue in Manhattan late Saturday night, shattering two 3-foot-by-5-foot glass panels in the lobby, said Buildings Department spokesman Tony Sclafani. Shirley Rozman said she was attending a party celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim in the building when she heard “what sounded like some plates breaking.” “I looked up, and there was glass flying everywhere,” Rozman said. “It looked like a hailstorm.” Partygoers ran from the center of the room, Rozman said. A small piece of glass lodged

in the chest of Rozman’s friend, she said, adding that she herself suffered a scrape on her chin. She noticed minor gashes on others’ legs and wrists. “There was a little bit of panic,” Rozman said. “People were afraid the ceiling would come crashing down even farther.” No one was seriously hurt, fire officials said. The injured were taken to area hospitals. The Buildings Department issued a violation Sunday to the property’s owners for failing to properly maintain the building. The owners could face a maximum $25,000 penalty. The New York Post and reported that “Jersey Shore” cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was among those attending a party in the building. “Omg roof just collapsed at the purim event!” she Twittered after the ice fell. —The Associated Press

know about

Alex McClanahan co-owner McClanahan Studio 208 Fifth St. Suite 302

1. Owns the studio with her husband, Dan. 2. Both graduated from Iowa State in May 2008, and the studio officially opened about a year ago. 3. Is a graphic designer by training, but says she enjoyed the transition to photography, and the opportunity of “working with people instead of just sitting in front of my computer.” 4. Says it takes a lot more than photography talent to run a successful studio. “We’re responsible for absolutely everything.” 5. Estimates that only 20 percent of their time is spent doing photography. The rest is accounting, reception, marketing and other tasks. 6. Says that she doesn’t have a favorite work: “It seems like our favorite things are always changing.” 7. But has produced some exciting commercial work, such as a poster of ISU men’s basketball player Craig Brackins that was recently distributed by the athletic department. 8. Says her favorite part of the job is meeting really awesome people and impacting their lives — “Usually it’s moments, like with a wedding, that impact people.” 9. Just opened a new studio with about 1,000 square feet of space more than their previous location. 10. Says she’s really happy with the new location — an old warehouse with wood floors, big windows and lots of natural light.

A local hair salon is attracting attention from all over the fashion industry. Last Monday, Leedz Salon, 2536 Lincoln Way, did a photo shoot for the “Color Passion” hair book. Bobby Quillard, a celebrity photographer from Los Angeles who has recently worked with Kim Kardashian and “The Hills” and “The Girls Next Door” cast members, flew in for the shoot. Most of the time, the salon enjoys serving college students who dare to try something new. Doug Ziminski, owner of the 20-year-old salon, attended Iowa State and ran his own salon within his fraternity. “I fell in love with Campustown,” Ziminski said, so he decided to open his own business there. “I used to do my own stuff — hair, makeup and photos — and send it to everyone,” Ziminski said. “Finally one book picked up my stuff, and then everyone else wanted it.” Since then, the salon’s work has appeared in 57 international style books. Ziminski has been in 14 national trade journals where he was a contributor for makeovers. Of those 14 journals, he earned two covers, beating out seven other contributors. Ziminski said preparation for the shoot took a great amount of time, which was all worth it. He arranged for four makeup artists — two from Omaha, one from Dallas and one who was a client ­— to work on the shoot, and he got two students from the College of Design to work as photo stylists. Their job was to provide clothes for the models, all of whom were clients who had never before modeled. Everyone, including the hair stylists, worked for free, except for the photographer. Steve Fisher, senior in apparel merchandising, design and production, spent the day shadowing Quillard and taking pictures of the shoot. “It was great working [with Quillard],” Fisher said. “He put me at ease.” Fisher, who initially wanted to try out fashion

design for something hands-on and creative, said he felt strengthened by what he learned during the shoot. “I felt like I was missing a lot of areas, and he filled in a lot of blanks,” Fisher said. He took about 800 pictures throughout the course of the day. “What drives these people to the shoot is not the books, but the event,” Ziminski said. “They get a mention in the book, which is cool. It’s a great portfolio builder as well.” But there was a time when simply getting their work published in a style book wasn’t enough for Ziminski’s hairdressers. “Two years ago, no one wanted to give their time to something like this, so we didn’t do it,” Ziminski said. “Now, my kids are so passionate about what they do.” The shoot used styles that are consistent with today’s latest fashion. Ziminski explained that as the economy collapsed, hair styles changed. “The fashion is softer, prettier and more seductive than in-your-face,” he said. “It’s more about feeling good about yourself.” He compared the styles they created to “soap opera hair,” which is full and soft but not overdone. The shoot used mostly college-aged models, but Leedz does not cater only to the college crowd. Ziminski said now that he’s older, his clients are older. “The general rule is whatever age the hairdresser is, that’s who you attract,” he said, “and your lifestyle also attracts who you work with.” While his customers are made up of about 10 percent college students, he said those are the clients who aren’t afraid to step outside the box. “The 18-to-25 bracket is the time when guys and girls have the most options with their styles,” he said. “They can just look at a magazine and say, ‘I want to try that.’” This age range is the most adventurous, he said, because these people don’t have any baggage to think about. “We tend not to do high school and middle school kids because their hair is not as important at that age and absolutely no one wants to look outside the box,” Ziminski said. He added that in a large college town, people don’t have an identity to worry about. “If people don’t like your hair, you don’t have to care,” he said. He said his “kids,” or his fellow hairdressers, are

his favorite part of the job. “I like to surround myself with certain people,” he said. “Those people really care and are passionate about what they do. I think there’s a certain joy you must experience when you work. Most people don’t experience that joy in your work.” Ziminski added that his job is the way he gets to express himself. “I’ve been doing this most of my life, and to me, it’s like hairdressing really is an art,” he said. “What a great joy to express myself every day and make people feel good. That’s pretty cool.” The excitement within the salon hasn’t ended now that the shoot is over. Now Ziminski and his stylists are just wondering what pictures and styles will be in the book. “We’re like kids in the summer waiting for Christmas. We have to wait four months for the book to come out,” he said.

Small Businesses

Career fair shifts focus to next year By Kyle Peterson Daily Staff Writer The Small Business Career Fair, scheduled to be held Wednesday in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union, has been canceled. The event was conceived as a partnership between ISU’s Liberal Arts and Sciences Career Service office and the Chamber of Commerce, and was intended to give recruiting opportunities to companies with less than 100 employees. But low business interest forced cancellation, said Megan Backman,

program manager with the Ames Chamber of Commerce. “We just didn’t have enough organizations register to warrant paying for the room,” said Kim Caponi, assistant director of LAS Career Services. “We came to a deadline when we either had to pay for the room or cancel the room.” Caponi said they were hoping for approximately 20 organizations to sign up. Twelve had registered when the event was canceled. Though this year’s career fair didn’t get off the ground, the event will likely return next year.

The Small Business Career Fair idea was created in order to cater to the needs of small companies, many of which don’t have the ability or resources to attend larger career fairs. “We do host the larger career fair events and they’re very successful,” Caponi said. “Some of the smaller organizations, they typically don’t attend that type of event.” Whether it’s the registration cost at the larger events, or the competitive requirement of having a flashy display, smaller companies recruit in alternative ways. Caponi said that next year’s fair

will benefit from what was learned through the work done this year, including how to best recruit small companies to take part in the event. She said that she spoke with several organizations not only about the event being organized, but also helped them to think about whether or not they could offer an internship, or implement an internship program. “We did generate a lot of interest, we did get a lot of calls,” Caponi said. “We’re planning to try it again next spring. Eventually, we think it will be very successful.”

Winter Games shed memories

Don’t shift the wealth

It’s all over. Two glorious weeks of competition, national pride, winning and losing have come to an end. Vancouver, British Columbia, was host to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and it did a fine job of playing home for the world’s greatest athletes and was the perfect backdrop for some of the world’s greatest stories. Coming from the shadow of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili’s death the day prior to the opening ceremony, the games carried on. Seven different sports awarded 258 medals, and each one carried a tremendous story. The host country won a record 14 gold medals, none more meaningful than its first. Alexandre Bilodeau captured the gold in the men’s moguls competition, becoming the first Canadian to win gold on home soil in the third games to be held in the Great White North. Canada’s Joannie Rochette gave one of the most emotionally charged performances of the games in women’s figure skating, competing just two days after her mother died suddenly of a heart attack. She was carried by her countrymen, shed tears after each of her performances and stole the show with her bronze medal. Rochette was also bestowed the honor of being Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony last night. The Canadian gold that held the most American interest was easily the win Sidney Crosby and Canadian team took in men’s hockey. Team USA fought to the final second of regulation, tying the game with just 30 second remaining, but Sid the Kid and the star-studded Canadians captured the gold on Crosby’s final goal, 7:40 into overtime. The goal set off national pandemonium and sealed a victory that NBC’s Bob Costas called the “biggest moment in Canadian sports history.” Even with all the successes of our friendly neighbors to the north, the red, white and blue didn’t do too badly. Sure, we had our failures — namely both the men’s and women’s curling teams bowing out after the preliminary rounds. Don’t pretend you didn’t watch every match. We know. We did. But the successes far outweighed them. Shaun White destroyed the field in the men’s snowboard halfpipe competition, even without needing to use his signature McTwist. Steve Holcomb piloted Night Train, the American’s four-man bobsled — the United States’ first gold in the event since 1948 — just over a year after he underwent a procedure to save his eyesight. Lindsey Vonn skied with a bruised shin and still won the women’s downhill competition, and Bode Miller made up for going 0-for-2006 by grabbing gold in the men’s combined. Then, there is Apollo Anton Ohno, whose three medals made him the most decorated Winter Olympian in U.S. history. And, despite the loss, let’s not forget the performance of our hockey team. The young group of up-and-coming NHL talent, a bronze medal likely would have pleased its country. But the team went to Vancouver and won its preliminary group — including the United States’ first win over Canada since 1960 — dominated Finland in the semifinal matchup and nearly stole gold on foreign soil for the first time in the country’s history. There are too many stories to tell here. There were firsts, lasts, countless tears and jubilant celebrations. It really is too bad it’s over. 2014 in Sochi, Russia, seems too far away. Thankfully, 2012 is right around the corner. Editor in Chief

Progressive taxes not the answer to aiding the less fortunate in our economy


ast week in my sociology class, a classmate brought up the topic of progressive income taxes. A progressive income tax is a tax where the percentage that you are charged increases as your income goes up, and it happens to be the type of income tax system we have in America today. After one student began to argue that she believed the system was unfair, my professor asked the class for a show of hands regarding who agreed with her. Nearly half of the class raised their hands. My professor then asked us to keep our hands up if we were wealthy enough that we had the option to not work for the rest of our lives. Out of the entire lecture hall, this amounted to three or four people. My professor explained that he understood why those few people would oppose a progressive income tax, but expressed bewilderment as to why the rest of us would. Though this “support only what will benefit you personally” mindset is undoubtedly common, even I — who strongly opposes a progressive tax system — was surprised how many other people thought this was unfair. However, for those of you who agree with my professor and think that it doesn’t make sense to support policies that mean somebody else has to pay extra instead of you, I offer this scenario: Imagine that a new law was proposed that

A progressive income tax is a tax where the percentage you are charged increases as your income increases. Hasenmiller argues that this method is theft, and the answer to the less fortunate’s economic problems does not lie in taking wealth from one group and giving it to another.

would result in lower taxes for whites and higher taxes for everyone else. If it came down to public support, it could happen. I mean, there are more whites than non-whites in our country after all. Or how about higher taxes for anyone from Illinois? Or higher taxes for University of Iowa graduates? Or higher taxes for people named Bob? In all of these cases, you would be helping yourself by supporting them because somebody else would be footing your bill — unless of course you’re Bob the black, Illinois native, U of I graduate.) So do you think that’s fair? The point is that, just because you’re in the majority doesn’t mean you have the right to take

at will from the minority. That’s called theft, and I’m willing to bet that the vast majority of people reading this are morally opposed to it. So why do so many people support progressive income taxes? Our professor ended by asking us to think about whether on not we believed that the people we were standing up for would do the same for us. Some probably would, and some probably wouldn’t, but I don’t think it really matters. For example, not too long ago, I found a flash drive that had been left in the computer lab by the person ahead of me. At this point, I had two choices: I could see who it belonged to based on its contents and have it returned to

its owner, or I could keep it for myself. After all, my current 512 megabytes certainly weren’t cutting it anymore. Now, I didn’t know this person. I don’t know if she would have done the same for me. Heck, she could’ve killed her mama for a nickel and I wouldn’t have had the slightest idea. But that didn’t matter. What mattered was that it wasn’t my flash drive, I didn’t earn it, I didn’t buy it and I’m not a thief. So I returned it to its proper owner. If you want to be

altruistic and help out the less fortunate, then that’s great. But please, don’t do it by encouraging the government to take money from one group of people and spend it on another. That’s not altruism. It’s theft. All in all, it can be summed up by a quote that I read once on the online comments of this paper: “You never really vote to raise your taxes; you can only vote to raise other peoples’ taxes. You can give your own money away without a vote.”

Movie Review:

‘Cop Out’ serves Parking problem surprising laugh plagues campus


hen combing Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, great laughs are not the first things that come to mind. “Cop Out” however, was a laugh-a-minute ride — of course, having Kevin Smith directing makes this feat of laughter a much easier task. The first scenes of the movie set the pace perfectly. Willis and Morgan are partners in their ninth year in the NYPD. Their tactics for interrogation involve playing roles to mess with the people involved while entertaining themselves. It’s not altogether dissimilar from the antics of “Super Troopers.” Morgan starts playing characters from various movies to make Willis laugh through the two-way mirror of the interrogation room, while Willis draws vulgar objects pointed at the perpetrator’s mouth in the steam built up on the mirror. Morgan continues his regular stand-up comic deliveries the entire film while Willis keeps a sort of tough guy appearance, chuckling to himself regularly. The laughs just keep going. To keep with the ’80s style this movie has, celebrity cameos are a regularity — well, that and it may actually be impossible for Smith to not use oodles of actors for bit parts, because that’s the way he makes movies. Jason Lee plays the new husband of Willis’ ex-wife, for example. Lee is the overly rich jerk trying to make Willis look bad in front of his daughter. His daughter is played by the all grown-up ­­— yet still extremely young looking — Michelle Trachtenberg. She’s getting married, her dream wedding is going to cost $50,000 and Willis can only pay for it by selling a priceless baseball card. And just to keep with the classic cop story, Willis and Morgan are suspended for their odd methods of police work and destruction of public property. That’s how the plot starts. As Willis goes to sell the card,

he is robbed by Sean William Scott’s insane, quick-witted, Parkour-using, pseudo-criminal character — Parkour is that cool martial art thing where people jump off of walls and climb buildings and dive through windows while fluidly twisting and turning. Yeah, it’s awesome. So, he steals the priceless card and hawks it for a cavalcade of drugs to the villain of the story: a wannabe drug czar of the East Coast with a baseball memorabilia obsession. Morgan’s character has the secondary plot as he worries about marital infidelity and torments himself with anxiety while trying to help Willis. All of these stories naturally intertwine to create hijnks and gun fights while stringing together scenes that would normally be looked at as a loose plot, but the jokes are just so tickling it all works. There are other celebrity cameo cops played by Kevin Pollack and Adam Brody and more one-liners and childish humor than can be reasoned as Scott steals every scene he graces. The whole flick leads up to a big shoot-out climax full of violence portrayed in such a cartoonish way it can barely be called violent — even when people are shot in the head, it’s funny. “Cop Out” was an unexpectedly, amazingly funny film that pays homage to ’80s style and doesn’t get lost in itself by trying to make some attempt at having meaningful plot. It’s an excellent way to spend an evening or afternoon and a great way to release some laughter-driven endorphins. Oh, and make sure to stay into the credits for extra laughs.


arking is becoming a problem at universities all across the United States. According to the Princeton Review, parking ranks third on the most important things to look at when applying for admission. Here at Iowa State it seems like you can never find a spot, especially for students. Iowa State needs to make parking more accessible, lower fines and permit prices. Iowa State’s parking is broken down into seven different permits/lots. According to the ISU Department of Public Safety, there is student, faculty and staff, commuters, visitors, motorcycles, medical and vendor parking. Permits range from $42 to $105. There are also two parking ramps on campus that are pay by the hour. When looking at a map of Iowa State, it looks like there are plenty of parking lots. But it is hard to accommodate more than 30,000 students and faculty. Almost every lot on campus is reserved for faculty and staff, making it so students have to sometimes park miles from their dorm or classes. Many firstyear students have to park their car at Jack Trice Stadium, which is about a mile from campus. — a Web site that rates colleges across the United States — gave Iowa State a C+ on parking. College Prowler said “truth be told, parking is one of the worst aspects of the Iowa State experience.” An issue with Iowa State’s parking is that you must have a sticker/permit to park on campus. If not, DPS will ticket you if you are parked in the wrong lot or don’t have a sticker. Parking tickets range from $5 to $100. The most extreme fine is for parking in a handicapped zone. Many ISU students say DPS is known for writing an insane amount of tickets and if you are parked illegally, they will find you. College is already expensive enough as it is, but if you add in parking tickets, it makes the situation even worse. I asked some ISU students

Anthony Shepard is a sophomore in interdisciplinary studies at Iowa State University. what they thought of Iowa State’s parking; almost all of them said that it is a hassle and that they wish they hadn’t brought their car. Others said they were lucky because they got a residence hall permit, so they park close to their dorm room. All of the students who have to park at the stadium complained it’s too far from campus and that it’s dumb that you have to ride a bus out there to get your car. One said that it’s a hassle on the weekends because buses don’t usually run out to the stadium. Another student said, “Since I have to take a bus out there, I usually just say ‘forget the car’ and I just ride the bus to class or work.” I asked the 10 students if they think Iowa State needs more parking. They all agreed — yes, Iowa State needs more parking, especially for students. The Director of Parking at Iowa State’s Parking Division said, “Yes, Iowa State needs more parking. There has been a higher demand than usual the past couple years, and we have had to start turning students away since there are no more spots left.” The only solution to the parking problems at Iowa State is to come up with a plan to add more parking in the near future. Iowa State also needs to have the money to do so, and the demand needs to continue to increase for more parking. Parking is a problem here at Iowa State and many other universities across the United States. Current students complain about the parking, and prospective students have begun to prioritize parking as one of the aspects they look at before applying for admission. Parking is such a problem here at Iowa State that students are either drowning in parking tickets or don’t have a car at all.

Learn about nonprofits


ngineering, business, architecture, psychology ... Whatever your field of study might be, please take a moment to consider a new program offered here at Iowa State University. I happened upon it coincidently at the end of last spring. The Non-Profit Protégé Program places ISU undergraduate students with nonprofit leaders to learn about the world of nonprofit management. As a political science and international studies major, the opportunity seemed perfect for me. I interviewed and promptly received notification that I would be matched with the executive director of the Ames-ISU YWCA, Liz Beck. I was ecstatic because women’s development is an issue I feel very strongly about. The first time Liz and I met, I knew it would be an intellectually thrilling semester. We were so excited about the program that we actually met before the semester even began. The knowledge that I acquired through Liz at our weekly meetings was invaluable. We covered topics from crisis management to the basic structure of a nonprofit organization. I also attended board meetings and fundraising events for the YWCA. This gave me an in-depth view of everything it took to run a successful program. Sometimes Liz and I would talk business, but other times we would just learn about each other. The learning environment was perfect because I was not afraid to inquire about many aspects of the nonprofit world that a lot of people do not discuss, because it might not paint a very pretty picture. This open dialogue allowed me to

see the good and the bad. At the end of the semester, I felt prepared to engage more directly in a nonprofit career. But most importantly, I learned the essential components of working and managing a group or organization. These essential skills I gained from Liz included time management, dealing with stressful working relationships and more. I learned the valuable role that volunteers play and the priceless work they do. Within the semester I also utilized my own skills in order to assist the YWCA with acquiring new mentors for their GIRLS Power program. This helped me to not only give back to the organization but also gain precious insight into the difficulties of recruiting volunteers. I am forever grateful to Liz Beck, the AmesISU YWCA and those who helped to coordinate this program. No matter your major, I believe a program like this could be key contribution to your future. Even if you are not planning to pursue a career in nonprofit, understanding the basic concepts and components which make a nonprofit function will have a major impact on the way you view the world. When thinking about my future, I remember one very basic idea: “You make a living by what you get, you make a life by what you give,” as said by Winston Churchill. Get involved. Applications are due March 12 for next fall’s program and are available on the Student Activities Center Web site at www.sac.

Palin family attacks unfair


am writing in response to Wednesday’s editorial, entitled: “Palin: Take it easy, double standard not fooling public.” To say that Palin was overreacting to the disgusting “Family Guy” episode is completely inaccurate. It is one thing to mock and satirize our political leaders for their general mannerisms and actions, but to continually mock and point out their personal flaws, especially in their families, is becoming ridiculous. There is also a double standard aimed at the former governor of Alaska. You never see Barack Obama, John McCain, Joe Biden and many other politicians have their families personally attacked like you do that of Sarah Palin.

You say she should take Friedman’s advice to “have a sense of humor and live a normal life,” but how is this even possible when media constantly attack your every move? When people continually accuse you of not even being the real mother of your child? When, even out of public office, you’re accused of being an idiot? It is seen every day in regards to Palin and there comes a point when enough is enough. To defend the episode and not recognize Sarah Palin has a legitimate reason to speak up is disgusting.

Keep spam from filling inbox


don’t know about anyone else, but I’m getting really tired of spam in my ISU e-mail. Every student group, research project, survey, apartment and restaurant in Ames seems able to download massive lists of ISU e-mails and send out spam. It used to be once in a while, but now it’s over a dozen per day. I can understand getting spam if you use your e-mail address as contact information at other Web sites and online businesses, but I

Isn’t there something Iowa State can do to restrict some of these groups from getting our e-mails to use as spam targets? My important e-mails from work and professors are getting lost in the junk, and I doubt I’m the only one who feels this way.

Unfounded accusations


ast Tuesday, I received an e-mail from Mike Demory tearing into the Atheist & Agnostic Society and calling us cowards for not accepting his invitation to debate the existence of God. This prompted me to look back at past e-mails to see what he was referring to. I found that on Dec. 17 — during Finals Week — he had sent the e-mail with his proposed idea to debate. On the same day, our then-president sent an e-mail that did not accept or deny his invitation, but rather informed him that it was a busy time for college students. I quickly e-mailed Demory back to ask him for more information and to inform him that our group went through a presidency change over break as well. On Wednesday, Demory’s letter entitled “ISU club fails to address blasphemy questions” appeared in the Daily and leveled similar criticisms to that of his e-mail he sent us the day before. As you may have assumed, the Atheist & Agnostic Society gets many e-mails from theists, some of which deserve to be taken seriously and others that do not. Demory’s original email fell into the latter category, so it was forgotten about over winter break. Why was his e-mail overlooked? Between criticisms launched by him in the e-mail

and his Daily article, he has made the following errors: He didn’t know the name of our group and mistakenly thought a national Web site for student groups was actually our own. Demory claimed that we participated in “Blasphemy Days” last September. This is also false. I wrote an opinion piece for the Daily and our Web site that discussed the value of free speech and the Blasphemy Day activities of the UNI Freethinkers and Inquirers. Demory made the comment that we were unsuccessful in challenging evangelist Tom Short. In fact, we held a mostly silent protest when Tom was here last year, and the Daily covered it. You can read about it all online. He has said several times that we challenged people to a debate, apparently meaning in a formal setting, and have since backed out because we can’t support our beliefs. I am not opposed to the idea of a debate, but in the three years I have been a member of the Atheist & Agnostic Society, we have never issued a challenge to engage in a formal

debate. I have continually supported criticizing religion as a way of generating an open dialogue, but he ultimately accepted a challenge that was never proposed. If we were truly afraid and incapable of publicly defending our beliefs, then why would we have a weekly “Ask an Atheist” booth set up on campus when its purpose is to help initiate that dialogue? Demory clearly has issues fact checking, even when the information he needs is all available online. Maybe next time he should also wait longer than two hours for a reply before writing a factually incorrect letter to the editor. If he can’t take the time to fact check anything about our group, then why should we waste time taking him seriously?

Whatever it takes Iowa State continues to find ways to win, despite poor shooting, inconsistent offense







By Travis J. Cordes Daily Staff Writer















No matter what curveball each game throws at it, Iowa State continually finds alternative ways to win. The action on the court certainly wasn’t pretty Saturday night, but a tough defensive effort and a solid performance from the free-throw line propelled the No. 15 Cyclones to a 48–39 victory over Kansas State (12–16, 4–10 Big 12). While defense continues to be a strong suit for the Cyclones (22–5, 10–4), who lead the Big 12 by giving up just 52.4 points per game, their offense continues to be unpredictable. But despite being erratic, the offense has managed to finds ways to overcome their problems on any given night. In three of its last four victories, Iowa State has produced a trio of vastly different methods of winning, each one just as effective as the last. “Good teams find a way to win those games,” said coach Bill Fennelly. “We had the right shots, but when you aren’t making shots you have to find other ways to score. So we defended great, took care of the ball and got to the free-throw line.” Chelsea Poppens continues to be a bright spot, as the freshman led the way with a game-high 18 points and team-high seven rebounds. Poppens stepped up with numerous big plays for the Cyclones, who were reeling from top scorer Alison Lacey’s poor 3-of-17 shooting performance. While the rest of the offense sputtered, Poppens stepped up during key sequences in the game by grabbing offensive rebounds and fighting through two or three defenders to score with a put back. “For [Lacey] and I to have an offensive night when none of our shots were falling, it was big to have Chelsea step up like she did,” said Kelsey Bolte, who shoot just 3-of-13 from the field. “She had a couple of huge rebounds, and for her to make the difference in the game was really big for our team.” Poppens was the only player in double digits for Iowa State, which scored the majority of its points in

Canada wins in stunning overtime, 3–2 By Jaime Aron AP Sports Writer VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Sid the Kid has a new label: Olympic hero. Already considered Canada’s greatest player since Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby did something the Great One never did, scoring the winning goal in overtime to give Canada a 3–2 victory over the United States in perhaps the most important game in the history of this hockey-obsessed nation. By winning the final event of the Vancouver Olympics, Canada earned its 14th gold medal — the most by any country at any Winter Olympics. Wow. Even the disappointed Americans had to appreciate what a Hollywoodesque finish this was. “It doesn’t feel real. It feels like a dream. It just feels like dream,” Crosby said. As much as it stung the Americans, all they had to do was remember the pretournament talk about them maybe getting bronze. Of course, expectations changed when they charged into the finals without ever trailing in a game. But in this one, they got behind early and never led. “Some day we’ll be proud of what we accomplished, but we came here with the belief we could win a gold medal,” captain Jamie Langenbrunner said. “It’s going to be tough to swallow.” Still, their silver was the 37th medal won by the United States at these games, also the most by any country at any Winter Olympics. The U.S. won the medals race for the first time since 1932. Crosby’s goal set off a wild celebration throughout Canada. In downtown Vancouver, fans set off fireworks in the street, climbed atop bus-stop rooftops and danced on tables in bars. Even IOC president Jacques Rogge got pumped up, gesturing for the crowd inside the arena to cheer louder before he put the gold medal around Crosby’s neck. A police spokeswoman referred to the madness as “good-natured.” Besides, crowds were likely to slow down for the closing ceremony later in the evening. Figure skater Joannie Rochette was chosen to carry Canada’s flag into the arena. She earned fans throughout the world by winning a bronze medal just days after her mother died of a heart attack while visiting the Olympics. The 24-year-old skater from Quebec said she was surprised one of the gold medalists wasn’t chosen to carry the flag. “It’s been a tough week for me, but I want ... to walk into that stadium with a smile on my face,” she said. “I achieved my goals. I want to celebrate with my teammates tonight.”

Junior Bolte joins list of ISU greats after passing 1,000-point milestone

■■ ■■ ■■

By Jordan Wickstrom Daily Staff Writer After scoring the first five points of Saturday‘s game versus Kansas State, junior Kelsey Bolte officially reached the 1,000-point milestone. Bolte became just the 22nd player to score 1,000 points, joining such ISU players as Angie Welle, Lindsey Wilson, Stacy Frese, Lindsey Medders, Tracy Gahan, Heather Ezell and current Cyclone Alison Lacey. “This really wasn’t something I thought about,” Bolte said. “But it feels really good and I’m really happy it happened at Hilton.” This is the second in a two-week span of Cyclones reaching career milestones. The week before Bolte’s achievement, Lacey notched her 500th assist and became the first Cyclone to reach 1,500 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists. And with the accomplishment comes a sense of relief for Bolte. Although she said she did not really think about it prior to the game, she is happy it is over so she can move on. The way Bolte reached her 1,000th point seems only fitting. Only two minutes into the first half, she hit her team-leading 66th 3-pointer of the season as well as the 170th of her career. Before Saturday‘s game, Bolte received a text

message reminding her of how close she was. After reading the message, she admitted to being scared it may have a negative effect on her game. “Someone texted me before the game and I thought I was probably going to get jinxed,” Bolte said. “I was kind of nervous, but I only needed five points and I’m glad I got it right away so I didn’t have to think about it.”

Coach Bill Fennelly was the first to congratulate her once the announcement of her 1,000th point was made. However, because of the low scoring of Saturday’s game, Fennelly was afraid he might have hurt the team with what he told Bolte. “I hugged her and I said, ‘Just make sure you don’t stay at 1,000 all night,’” Fennelly said. “I think I might have jinxed the team.” Bolte’s achievement comes as no surprise for Fennelly. She may only be a junior and this may only be her second season as a full-time starter, but according to Fennelly, Bolte has been positively contributing to the team since day one. “It’s a great honor for her,” Fennelly said. “That’s a big thing, it’s a milestone for every basketball player who comes to the collegiate level. You talk about a kid who has another year to go and who has impacted our team from the day she walked on campus.” With one more year of eligibility left, Bolte has the opportunity to join the ranks of the top 10 scorers in ISU history.

Cyclone lead at half falls with free-throw misses By The Associated Press BOULDER, Colo. — With Colorado trailing and in a rut, guard Cory Higgins knew something had to change. The junior guard got aggressive and it was exactly what the Buffaloes needed to get a difficult conference win. Higgins scored a season-high 33 points, 21 in the second half, to lead Colorado over Iowa State 75–72 in a battle between Big 12 also-rans Saturday. Marquis Gilstrap scored 26 points for the Cyclones (14–15, 3–11 Big 12), who have lost 10 of their last 12 games. Higgins was nearly perfect on the day, hitting 12-of-15 shots and all six of his free throws. “I started out just trying to attack the basket, but when I got things going my shot felt good,” he said. Higgins’ previous season high was 30 against Kansas State on Jan. 16, and he was one point short of his career high set against Texas on Feb. 14, 2009. He moved into 12th place on Colorado’s all-time scoring with 1,324 points. With Colorado (13–15, 4–10) trailing 46–40 with 16 minutes left, Higgins scored 15 of the Buffaloes’ next

17 points to give them a 57–55 lead with 7:20 left. He hit two 3-pointers in the stretch, and he finished it with a baseline drive past 6-foot-9-inch LaRon Dendy. “We were starting to get a little stagnant on offense,” Higgins said. “I wasn’t just trying to score, I was trying to attack and maybe open things up for other people. We needed to be

more aggressive.” The rest of the team got the message. Casey Crawford scored all 10 of his points in the second half, including two 3-pointers and a putback layup to extend Colorado’s lead to 65–61 with 2:28 left. “He was the difference in the game,” ISU coach Greg McDermott said of Crawford. “You’re trying to

provide help on some of their back cuts and trying to make it difficult for [Alec] Burks and Higgins as much as you can. You have to give up something and Casey Crawford really made us pay.” Gilstrap kept the Cyclones close with a pair of buckets, and Justin Hamilton’s three-point play with 54 seconds left cut their deficit 71–70. But Colorado hit six free throws in the final 1:16 to seal the win. Diante Garrett missed a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied it. “We scrapped our way to a great win for us,” Colorado coach Jeff Bzdelik said. “The more you make [free throws] in these kinds of situation the confidence grows. “I think that this team needs to learn how to win, and I think that this is a big step toward that.” The Cyclones rallied from an early deficit to take a 38–36 lead at halftime. Gilstrap led Iowa State with 12 first-half points, and Higgins and Marcus Relphorde had 12 each for Colorado. For the game, Colorado hit all 12 of its free throws while Iowa State was 12-of-21 from the line. “In the first half free throws were a real big part of it. They made their free throws and we didn’t,” Gilstrap said.

Sixth-place Big 12 finish equals best in last decade By Kasey Sutherland Daily Staff Writer

Bor, mile company lead seventh-place Cyclones By Dan Tracy Daily Staff Writer Two weeks ago at the ISU Classic, ISU junior Hillary Bor did not even finish a heat of the men’s mile. In his first heat, he fell down at the 800-meter mark, and in the second heat Bor returned to run ahead of the field and set the pace for the first two laps before dropping out again. The performance was a shock for coach Corey Ihmels, who said earlier this week that Bor needed to “just stay on the track” at this weekend’s Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championships. Not only did Bor stay on the track this weekend, he was the first on the track to cross the finish line, winning the men’s mile run in a time of 4:12.59 to earn his first Big 12 Indoor Championship. “It feels great,” Bor said. “I’m just happy [because] I’ve been looking for the Big 12 title for like three years now and it just feels great.” In one of the more exciting races of the day, Oklahoma’s Eric Harasyn jumped out to a large lead as the field started the final lap, but Bor was able to catch him down the final stretch and edged him out at the line winning by a mere sixhundredths of a second. “I was just trying to stay in second place and be out of trouble so I [could] try to win in the last 300 meters,” Bor said. Bor’s chase after a Big 12 title has been a steady upward progression as he finished third in 2008 and second in 2009. “He’s got a lot of heart,” Ihmels said of Bor. “He’s a pretty emotional kid; he’s sensitive, conscientious and may not have been the best guy in the race, but he showed a lot of heart down that home stretch.”

IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE In honor of Roy J. Carver who achieved success through initiative and hard work

Bor, who also finished fifth in the 3,000-meter run, wasn’t the only Cyclone to cross the finish line in the mile as seniors Brandon Rooney and Jory Zunich were able to finish fourth and fifth, earning the Cyclones 19 total points in the race. Rooney had one of the busiest weekends of any Cyclone, running two preliminary races in the mile run and 1,000-meter run Friday, followed by the finals Saturday. Along with his fourth-place finish in the mile, Rooney scored six more points with a third-place finish in the 1,000-meter run. “To score 19 points in one event was something we haven’t done since the era when we were winning championships, so that was something special,” Rooney said. “Just to be a part of it in my senior year, I can’t be more stoked.” Zunich earned the eighth and final qualifying time in the mile run before setting a new personal record in the final with his time of 4:13.88. Another of the dual-event competitors, Zunich and his teammates knew the meet would be both a physical and mental challenge. “When things are going well, it’s really not bad; all of us just tried to go out there and take each race at a time and focus on the task at hand,” Zunich said. The 19 points in the mile were a huge boost for the ISU men’s team as it recorded its best finish — seventh — since 2000, when it also finished seventh. The 50 team points was the third-most recorded by an ISU men’s track and field since the conference’s inception in 1997. On paper, the men’s team was ranked No. 122 out of 150 nationally and last in the Big 12. Ihmels was proud that the distance runners stepped up to the challenge

Iowa State is on the move. The women’s squad posted its best finish since 2000 at the Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championships with its sixth place finish this weekend. The Big 12 overall title went home with the Texas A&M Aggies, which came into the weekend’s Big 12 Championships with the top-ranked women’s squad in the country. The Cyclones were once again lead by senior distance runner Lisa Koll. Koll ran in the 3,000- and 5,000-meter competitions and emerged as the Big 12 champion in both events, earning her seventh and eighth individual Big 12 championships in her career at Iowa State. Koll’s final race at her home track was one of her greatest with a time of 8:56.09 in the 3,000 meters, the third-fastest time ever by a collegiate athlete on an indoor track. “My last [3,000-meter race] didn’t go very well, so I didn’t know what to expect,” Koll said. “I just stayed relaxed the first half and got rolling and rolling, and the last 600 I just gave it all I had. The crowd was amazing and just feeling the energy; there’s no better place to run fast than at home in front of all these people excited about track.” There was hardly room to stand around the track as the competition went on providing the electric atmosphere for Koll’s record performance. Coach Corey Ihmels was excited about Koll’s weekend per-

Canadian doctor investigated for selling unapproved drug

Northug pulls off late pass to win cross-country gold

By Jay Cohen AP Sports Writer

WHISTLER, British Columbia — Petter Northug saw the back of a familiar rival ahead of him, and knew this race would have a familiar ending. The Norwegian blew past Germany’s Axel Teichmann near the finish line for the second time at these Olympics, using his trademark sprint to win the 50-kilometer classical crosscountry race for his second gold medal of the games. “I knew I could take him,” Northug said with his usual bravado. “I had another gear to use if I needed it.” This gear was more than enough. Northug specializes in winning mass starts just like this one, where he can tag along behind the leaders for much of the way before deciding the race with his unrivaled closing ability. Teich-

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Mets shortstop Jose Reyes said Sunday he met with federal investigators last week regarding a Canadian doctor accused of selling an unapproved drug. Dr. Anthony Galea is facing four charges in his country related to the drug known as Actovegin, which is extracted from calf’s blood and used for healing. His assistant also has been charged in the U.S. for having HGH and another drug while crossing the border in September. Galea is known for using a blood-spinning technique — platelet-rich plasma therapy — designed to speed recovery from injuries. Besides Reyes, he also has treated Tiger Woods and several other professional athletes. “They just asked me basically how I met the guy and stuff like that and what he put in my body,” Reyes said. “I explained to them what he (was) doing. ... I don’t worry about anything. I didn’t do anything wrong.” reported Saturday night that federal officials have told several athletes to expect grand jury subpoenas in the case. The Web site cited three anonymous sources familiar with the investigation. The New York Times reported in December,


the second half from the charity stripe, making 12-of-13 shots down the stretch. Iowa State was 15-of-18 from the free-throw line in the game, while the Wildcats made just two of three. It took more than 11 minutes for the Cyclones to score in the second half, as the team shot just 4-of-21 from the field after halftime, and was 16-of-49 in the game. “We just couldn’t make a shot to save our lives,” said Bolte, who also scored her 1,000th career point in the game. “But luckily we were able to defend pretty well and were able to hang on to our lead.” This game was in stark contrast to recent victories over Baylor and Missouri, in which

citing anonymous sources, that the FBI opened an investigation into Galea based in part on medical records found on his computer relating to several professional athletes. Reyes said he met with investigators from the FBI for about 45 minutes at the Mets’ spring facility after they contacted him Thursday morning. One of his agents, Chris Leible, also was present. The Daily News of New York was the first to report the meeting. Reyes, who missed much of last season with right leg problems, said he spent five days in Toronto in September and was treated by Galea three times during the stay. The shortstop was asked by investigators if he used HGH. “They asked me if he injected me with that. I say ‘No,’” Reyes said. “What we do there, basically, he took my blood out, put it in some machines, spin it out and put it back in my leg. So I explained to them that.” Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said the team was aware of the situation, and manager Jerry Manuel said he isn’t worried about it becoming a distraction. Reyes said he felt better for a while after the treatment but his leg still didn’t respond when he tried to run full speed. He had surgery in October to clean up some scar tissue remaining from a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee.

below their season average. But no matter what offense shows up, Iowa State’s tough-asnails defense can always make up for whatever happens on the other end of the floor. “We have told our kids from day one that we felt we had to be a better defense than we have been in the past,” Fennelly said. “Because we don’t have a lot of scorers, there’s no guarantee. So we had to embrace the fact that we need to defend.” The final road match of the season awaits Iowa State on Wednesday, when it travels to Stillwater, Okla., to face No. 23 Oklahoma State.

Iowa State used two completely different offensive tactics to get wins. Against Baylor, the Cyclones used their well-known shooting talent to knock down 16 3-pointers, coming off of 23 assists on 25 made field goals. During their next three wins, however, Iowa State converted on just nine of 47 3-point attempts. Last weekend’s game against Missouri brought focus to the inside game, where the Cyclones outscored the Tigers 34–16 in the paint. The inability to make shots from the field forced Iowa State to control the free-throw line against Kansas State, where the Cyclones took advantage of every opportunity they were given for free points. The Cyclones also had a mere eight assists on their 16 field goals, which is seven assists


Hurdler Jenna Caffrey was unable to improve on her quickest time of the year in the 60-meter hurdles, but remains a provisional qualifier for the NCAA Indoor Championships on March 12 and 13 with her time of 8.36 earlier this year. Her time of 8.47 was quick enough for sixth place on the podium Saturday. The women’s throwers were able to score points for the Cyclones with fourthand sixth-place finishes in the weight throw from Laishema Hampton and Danielle Frere.

he laid out for them this week. “The guys were picked to finish last in the meet, and we had a team meeting where I told the distance guys that if they didn’t come through, we would finish last,” Ihmels said. “It was fun to see and they took some pride in getting that done.” The Oklahoma Sooners became the first team other than Nebraska or Texas to win a men’s Big 12 Indoor Track and Field championship, edging out the Huskers by four team points, 114–110.

mann knows that very well. On Sunday, the German tried to pull away from the rest of the leading group in the final uphill section, but never got enough of a gap to shake Northug. “I knew that if I don’t fall or end up breaking a pole, I have a very good chance to sprint down Teichmann,” Northug said. “Teichmann is maybe the second-best sprinter after 30K, or after 50K,” he said, not bothering to point out who’s the best. “He’s really fast at the end.” Just not fast enough. Teichmann had to use a lot of energy making up a 20-second gap to the leading group over the last 10 kilometers. He then didn’t have enough left to give Northug a serious challenge at the end.

The first involves senators spending office hours outside of the West Student Office Space in the Memorial Union. The second way has GSB members go to different organizations and groups and having them give the GSB 101 presentation to make sure they are getting all the services they can from GSB, she said. A lighter question of the night, which was meant to be a character reference question, asked the hopefuls what three non-essential items they would bring with them to a deserted island. Wilson said he would bring his iPod, his bed and a lifetime supply of strawberry ice cream, whereas Dobbels would bring a picture of family and friends, a fishing pole and a boat. Roling said he would bring a baby grand piano — after buying one first — a Bible and a laptop. Peterson said she would have to steal her boyfriend’s iPod and bring Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom because they could get her off the island. The candidates were also asked if they planned to continue on with GSB or other leadership roles if they were not elected to the executive branch, all of whom answered yes. Each parties platforms and issues are listed on their Web sites at and Students can vote Monday and Tuesday at www.

sas and are denied, which is very frustrating for everyone,” Parker said. Another reason so many undergraduate Chinese students have been coming to the United States is that they can receive a higher quality education here. Xinyu Wan, freshman in industrial engineering, said China believes the United States has the “best education system in the world.” Parker said the Chinese culture values education very strongly, and families will save money so their children can obtain a quality education. “It was hard for my parents to go to college or study abroad, because they couldn’t afford it,” Wan said. Now that the economy has improved in China, families can afford to send their children all over the world to attend school, Wan said. Chinese families used to send their children to universi-

ties in Great Britain, Australia, Japan and Canada. Yinfei Liu, junior in finance, said Chinese families have changed where they want to send their children because of their belief that the United States has the more advanced education system when compared to those countries. “Its academic reputation is better than Canada and Australia, its tuition and living expense are lower than Britain, and living stress is lower than Japan,” Liu said. Xing Cao, freshman in electrical engineering, said he chose to attend Iowa State because Ames is “small and a good place to start.” Studying in the United States allows international students the opportunity to improve their English. “The best way to learn English is to speak with someone whose first language is English,” Wan said. Yiqi Sun, freshman in chemical engineering, was thinking about the job market and made the decision to come to Iowa State to further her education. “Finding a job as an undergraduate in China is more difficult,” Sun said. “It’s better to attend school here and have English skills, and it’s easier to get a job.” Sun said Chinese students who receive a higher education in the United States will be better suited to offer a different perspective if employed at a Chinese company following graduation. Having a degree from an American university will also make the process of getting accepted into graduate school in the United States easier for international students. “It’s easier to get into graduate school here than if you go to a Chinese university,” said Anqi Lu, freshman in pre-business.


the Big 12 institutions about the importance of education, the importance of perseverance despite the odds and the troubles of black relationships. “I had a 15 on the ACT,” Moore said. “And now they’re telling me they’re sending a limo to pick me up. But that didn’t come overnight. We, as a group, need to learn about delayed gratification.” Workshops took place after breakfast with themes such as “Powerful Beyond Our Story,” “Powerful Beyond Inspiration,” “Powerful Beyond Wellness” and “Powerful Beyond Finances and Leadership.” Topics ranged from intraracial discrimination in the black community, the rise of a “thugnificent” black male image, leadership with a soul, sexual health jeopardy and understanding stocks and bonds. A career fair connecting the students with various business entities was also held. “It’s important for black students to think about their careers and have access to the professional world so that we can break these cycles of financial illiteracy,” said Brandon Bates, senior in mechanical engineering at the University of Texas. Keynote speakers LeToya Luckett, formerly of Destiny’s Child, and Kyle Clark were featured during lunch and dinner. “When you allow yourself to challenge your comfort zone, to raise the bar, you really do begin to be powerful beyond measure,” Luckett said. The evening closed out with a gospel extravaganza and a social masquerade event.


Our Present” and “Powerful Beyond Leadership” themes. “I see CEOs and entrepreneurs; I see it all right here and it gives me inspiration to keep on moving,” said Chris Collins, workshop leader and chief inspirational officer for Great Minds ThInC Alike Incorporated. “That’s what our workshop is all about, putting passion back into leadership.” A similar motivation was presented by the closing day’s three keynote speakers featured during breakfast, lunch and dinner services: Joya Hayes, Bakari Sellers and Dr. Gwen WebbHasan. “If you’re going to be leaders, you’re going to have to fight,” said Hayes, former Alpha Kappa Alpha member and motivational speaker. “It’s not about you, it’s not about me, it’s about us.” The night ended with a southern hospitality event and an alter-ego social party.
