ASK an Atheist DAY ROTC
Candidates prepare for leadership
Courts decide ‘pink slime’ work is confidential
By Paul.Ehrsam @iowastatedaily.com The ISU NROTC Marines are gearing up for the home stretch of training before participating in Officer Candidate School this summer. Officer Candidate School is a six-week-long training school that Marine Midshipmen go through during the summer after their junior year in Quantico, Va. According to the Marine Corps website, the mission and purpose of Officer Candidate School is to train, screen and evaluate candidates, who must demonstrate a high level of leadership potential and commitment to success in order to earn a commission. “The training at [Officer Candidate
Questions welcome at group every Friday By Hayley.Lindly @iowastatedaily.com Today students are encouraged to participate in a national holiday which encourages questions and open discussion with people who choose the path of atheism. Iowa State’s Atheist and Agnostic Society takes part in National Ask an Atheist Day on Thursday. Ask an Atheist Day is a national movement run by the Secular Student Alliance. According to their website, they are a nonprofit organization that aims to “organize and empower nonreligious students around the country.” In order to participate in the national event the Atheist and Agnostic society will have a booth open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the South Atrium in the Memorial Union. Many of the members will wear a “Yes I’m an Atheist. (Ask me anything!)” sticker around campus.
“If people see somebody wearing a sticker in class they should listen to the sticker and ask them anything,” said Jeff St. Clair, president of the Atheist and Agnostic Society and senior in computer science. “Anybody wearing that sticker is more than willing to talk about this stuff.” The members of the Atheist and Agnostic society are no strangers to receiving questions and engaging in discussion with their peers. Every Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., they congregate outside of the library for their weekly event, Ask an Atheist. “We really like discussion. Critical thinking is great. If we can get people, religious or not, to just think critically and discuss religious topics, where they might not otherwise, that is fantastic,” St. Clair said. Ian Norris, junior in aerospace engineering, has stopped by the Ask an Atheist booth before. Norris defines himself as a born-again Christian. “I like to talk with them about
Research denied release By Meghan.Johnson @iowastatedaily.com Years after initial need, an Iowa court decided that controversial research made by ISU Professor James Dickson about the lean, finely textured beef, otherwise known as pink slime, is confidential information and should not be open to the public. With an E. Coli outbreak in 2007 there were about two dozen people looking to file lawsuits. Bill Marler, a food safety lawyer, represented most of those affected by the outbreak.
The E. Coli outbreak traced back to Cargill Hamburgers, an international producer and distributor of foods. Cargill got their meat for their hamburger, from four different plants. One of these plants that the meat came from was Beef Products, Inc. Dickson was hired by the company in 2002. Through research Marler was performing about background information on E. Coli and pink slime, he stumbled upon Dickson’s research. Marler expressed interest in the background data of Dickson’s published study.
He then proceeded to send a Freedom of Information Act request to Iowa State, which Iowa State
agreed to. Dickson conducted his research for Beef Products, Inc., and while

School] is some of the most demanding training for officer candidates in the [U.S.] military,” said Jayson Rimer, Midshipman senior in communication studies. It consists of evaluations in the areas of leadership, academics and physical fitness. This training evaluation lasts about six weeks for ROTC Midshipmen, two six-week sessions for Platoon Leader Candidates and 10 weeks for the Officer Candidate Course. Rimer, who went through Officer Candidate School last summer, said the challenge and difficulty level of the training is very intense. “For me personally, [Officer Candidate School] was extremely challenging. You get very little sleep and you are always doing something,” Rimer said. “As a future leader of Marines I want to go through the challenges that they have and will face, and [Officer Candidate School] gives me that opportunity.” Rimer said the program consists of physical events like hikes, obstacle course, endurance course, Marine Corps mixed martial arts as well as academic tests and practical application in the field. There are usually about 240 candidates who go each summer, and there is a fairly large
dropout rate for the training. “Unlike boot camp where it is meant to break you down and then build you back up, [Officer Candidate School] is meant to evaluate you as a potential future Marine Corps officer,” Rimer said. “If the instructors see, at any point, that you do not have what it takes, then they will drop you and send you home. That is why [Officer Candidate School] is so challenging, because Marines are the few and the proud, and Marine Corps officers are even fewer.” Along with the physical toll the training takes on the Marines, one of the biggest factors in determining if a Marine has what it takes to make it through the training is integrity. “Really integrity is one of the key things, because when people really start placing the pressure on you, are you going to cave in and do the thing that seems easy but it’s the wrong thing to do?” said Capt. Jerome Borden, adjunct instructor of naval science. “Because if you do that you will get caught, and once you do that, that’s it because that’s a character flaw that really can’t be fixed through training and everything, that’s an individual decision on what kind of person you’re going to be and what you’re about, and [Officer Candidate School] pulls that

However, if a Marine gets hurt or doesn’t pass some of the tests, they are likely get invited back for a second attempt.

Professor wins 2013 Bio-Serv Award Researcher studies nutrition deficiency By Jared.Raney @iowastatedaily.com For $270, Matthew Rowling bought himself a rat. Not just any rat, however; a Type 2 diabetic rat, perfect for his award-winning research. Rowling, assistant professor of food science and human nutrition, won the 2013 Bio-Serv Award this past February for his work studying nutritional deficiencies in diabetic people. Diabetics face many concerns because of their disease, among them kidney problems due to vitamin D deficiency. “It could help people with diabetes maintain normal nutrition. People have this issue, which frequently happens, and their diet might not be sufficient,” Rowling said. “Even if it doesn’t cure diabetes, [our research] can help protect the kidney.” The Bio-Serv award is specifically given to junior researchers, based on research done within 10 years of getting a doctorate. It’s also specifically awarded for the use of experimental animals in
research. Rowling said they use the rats to model different diabetic types, such as Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and how different diets can affect the nutritional status of patients, in this case, the rats. “We’re not doing it to improve the health of the rat, we’re using models of diabetes,” said Kevin Schalinske, professor from food science and human nutrition, as well as Rowling’s old adviser. An award committee from Iowa State selects the ISU candidates, then the nominees for the award are evaluated by the American Society for Nutrition, and the honor of receiving the award is complemented by a $1,000 cash prize. Schalinske said that Iowa State usually merits at least one award every year for its researchers. “If it has a strong translational component, I think that’s the key,” Schalinske said. “How well does this translate into something that could have very practical, viable implications for humans?” There are usually five to six nominations each year, and, though most years a winner is chosen, none of the nominees have the guarantee that any one of them will win the prestigious

On March 13, Iowa District Court Judge Dale Ruigh ruled that the information should not be released to the public. Coincidentally, Marler now represents two USDA inspectors that Beef Products, Inc., has recently sued. “The documents that are linked to Iowa State are going to get disclosed in that litiga-

Coli case. Marler thinks that the court may make a different decision for this case. Marler never thought that three years down the road he would be representing two inspectors that were being sued by Beef Products, Inc. “When a company files a lawsuit, the company’s records are frankly all an issue,” Marler said. Marler believes that the research preformed by Dickson at ISU will quite possibly be released through this case.

Tragedy helps show silver lining The Boston Marathon is normally viewed as a safe place, much like elementary schools, such as Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., which became the site of a mass shooting in December 2012. Yet on Monday, bombs went off at the marathon’s finish line, killing three and injuring dozens more. Facts are still sketchy and pieces of information keep filtering in. It is clear from these two experiences — and, indeed, our increased sensitivity to violence — that nothing is sacred. At this point, everyone knows that there are sick people in the world who have few compunctions about causing physical harm to masses of people who have done nothing to merit a violent response. Having had a few days to begin digesting the event and responses to it, however, there is a silver lining despite all the misinformation and hasty reporting. The universal outrage about the Boston Marathon bombings, even if it was expressed only on Facebook and Twitter out of a codependent need to keep up with the times, shows that people are basically good. The shock, horror and sympathy expressed from Monday show that most of us, in fact, would not consider bombing a race or making a similarlyviolent act toward a similarly-innocent group. The stories about runners and bystanders rushing to help the bomb blast’s victims show that, when confronted with a disaster, many of us will step forward to help keep other people safe. In another important way, the Boston Marathon bombing can help Americans clarify their future courses of action in diplomacy, war and humanitarian aid. It is not a large stretch to assert that Americans expressed outrage because we Americans are unfamiliar with the concept that violence can be a part of daily life. In other countries (take Israel and Palestine, or Iraq and Afghanistan, for example) events such as car bombings, suicide bombings and other acts of terror are endemic and routine. Compared to that, we Americans have it made. Bombings and shootings in the United States are just as horrible as they are anywhere else, and vice versa, but the universal outrage directed at the Boston Marathon bombings connects us better to all the people in the world’s less-developed countries who need our help creating thriving economies and stable political systems. In experiencing the same travails as they, we can perhaps better understand them and choose to work with them rather than impose structures from without, as we did, for the most part, in Iraq and Afghanistan. Already, questions about what we can do to lessen the frequency of such violence are arising. The answer, of course, is to take more responsibility for our communities and to act more deliberately as we seek to improve them. Although an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it is unlikely that humans will ever live in a world devoid of violence. In response, people can demonstrate the same humanity and empathy that marks the outstanding individuals who assist at any disaster, such as the people who helped during the Boston Marathon bombings this week.

Paradise lost in liberal party
Communications cause challenges for Democratic efforts
For the last two weeks, I’ve wrote columns about how to “fix” the Grand Old Party. Now I’m going to spend my “word limit” expounding upon something truly personal (and more challenging) — the problems of my political party. In some respects, attempting to change your own political party forces you to examine your own faults. This column is a reflection of my own political character and the sum of all the hope I have for the future of politics. The opening lines of Paul Krugman’s book, “The Conscience of a Liberal,” is nostalgic for the post-New Deal “Middle Class America”: “It’s only in retrospect that the political and economic environment of my youth stands revealed as a paradise lost, an exceptional episode in our nation’s history.” I wasn’t born into this era. I was born in the early 1990s, so I don’t have any experience with the old Roosevelt Democrats or recollections of their attempts to eliminate social and economic inequality in America. However, by the time I was old enough to understand politics, I knew something had gone awry.
By Michael.Glawe @iowastatedaily.com With years came exposure to modern politics, and I found that my suspicions were confirmed. Since that great era, Krugman’s “paradise lost,” we’ve seen a rightward shift in the political spectrum. Modern Democrats are similar to old moderate Republicans, and modern Republicans are just really far to the right. The intention behind my last two columns, contrary to many of my critics, was not to “liberalize” the GOP but to bring it back from the fringes of desolation. Even more so, Republicans need to take back their party so Democrats can stop playing Rockefeller Republicans and go back to being Roosevelt Democrats. Right now, the Democrats are chained to an anchor, and that anchor is a hyperpolarized opposition party that is dragging the spectrum in the wrong direction. But it wouldn’t be fair of me to place all of the blame on the GOP. There are problems in my party as well, but fixing these problems proves a greater challenge for
myself than fixing the Republican Party. After all, prescribing change for oneself is much more difficult than playing doctor for another. The problems for Democrats lie within their framework of communication (and when I say “their,” I include myself). Democrats utilize emotions and personal stories to shed light upon the growing disparities and problems in our country, which I believe is a good way to provide perspective on policy issues. But this has its limits. Liberals also need to explain the complexities of their policies. For instance, spending on stimulus packages during a recession reduces unemployment, but it’s so counterintuitive (and, indeed, it isn’t something easily understood without focusing one’s study on complex economic models) that it’s easy to market against. In response, Republicans simply say, “Well, we can’t spend beyond our means” and “raising taxes on the rich is class warfare.” Neither is necessarily true, but what does a complacent electorate know about tax policy other than the fact that it hates paying taxes? The “attitude” of the Democrats on some of these matters, on which we have so much research and data, should be, “We have credible evidence. You don’t. End of discussion.” I mean this with all seriousness. It’s rather
an odd thought, but Democrats need to stop compromising with Republicans on factual matters. President Barack Obama needs to stop caving to the GOP. For example, concerning healthcare reform, the Democrats should have begun the debate presenting a single-payer healthcare plan (or, at least, a public option). The Republicans would obviously reject their plan, but that’d leave room to compromise in the “middle.” Instead, we have “Obamacare,” which is more to the right than Richard Nixon’s healthcare proposal (Nixon’s plan mandated companies to buy insurance; Obama’s plan mandates individuals). If the Democrats keep allowing this anchor to pull the political spectrum in the wrong direction, we may no longer have a party for the “little guy.” What, after all, has happened to the powers of organized labor? Financial regulations? Single-payer healthcare? Income equality? I, like Krugman, feel abandoned by my party. Though we have made great strides in healthcare and same-sex marriage, we have much more to do. As of now, we have lost sight of Paradise.

Letters to the Editor
Riots are not time-honored at ISU Celebrate best during Veishea The Iowa State Daily’s editorial on Monday, “Exercise your rights this Veishea,” missed the mark
when it described riots and property damage as “Veishea traditions almost as time-honored as cherry pies.” Time-honored is an adjective describing something that is respected or accepted over a long
period of time. The serious Veishea-related incidents over the past 25 years were none of those things. They were irresponsible acts that threaten one of Iowa State’s most beloved traditions and put the safety and reputation of ISU
students at risk. There’s nothing honorable about that. I urge you to support your fellow students who have worked so hard over the past year to plan a successful and safe Veishea. It’s an opportunity for us
to come together to celebrate the university and each other at our very best. Iowa Staters shouldn’t accept anything less.
Tom Hill is the senior
vice president for student affairs.
Concerts well worth Students ‘Establish what we pay for them and Grow’ in Uganda I didn’t think it was fair that the Iowa State Daily bashed Veishea concerts in a recent editorial. I’d gladly pay for what they charge to see Easton Corbin alone. A lot of the artists would probably cost at least $30 at any other venue. I’m going to see Easton Corbin, Jana Kramer and B.o.B for $20. I think that it’s a pretty good deal. And — correct me if I’m wrong — I’m pretty sure most of the major artists play more than just a few songs. The opening bands might play a three or four songs, but I’m pretty sure B.o.B or Easton Corbin will play a full set. I don’t think these headliners would come here to perform “four or five songs” in Iowa. I just thought the editorial was inaccurate and unfair to Veishea. I go to the concerts every year, and I think this year is one of the better lineups I’ve seen. There will be a General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students
few bands that I don’t like or don’t care to hear, but I’d pay that $20 to see three bands that I do like any day. As a loyal reader of the Daily, I was pretty disappointed with this article. I don’t think it’s right that we keep bringing up past violent events when we talk about a celebration of Iowa State. If we continue to make it an issue and give students an option of the events on campus or making unsafe and stupid decisions on Welch, then who’s really causing the problems? We are. I think it was an unfair editorial, and I’m happy to say that my roommate and I will be at the concerts to hear most of the bands. Are bands there that we don’t know or are interested in? Absolutely. But that won’t stop us from seeing the headliners.

New shooting guard fills void from graduates The ISU men’s basketball team has signed K.J. Bluford, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound shooting guard from Northeast Community College in Nebraska, ISU coach Fred Hoiberg announced Wednesday. At his former school, Bluford averaged 17.8 points per game, earning his second-team All-Region XI honors for this past season. He also made 113 3-pointers this past season, shooting 38.8 percent from behind the arc. “We feel K.J. is one of the best junior college shooters in the nation,” Hoiberg said in a release. “He’s athletic, experienced and shoots with confidence. He will fit in perfectly in our up-tempo offense and we are looking forward to having him join our team.” Bluford will fill the void left by departing shooting guards Chris Babb and Tyrus McGee and will join 2013 signees Matt Thomas, Monte Morris, Richard Amardi, Dustin Hogue and Daniel Edozie. The class is ranked No. 39 in the country according to ESPN.com. —Dean Berhow-Goll

Decathlon SPORT: Track and field DEFINITION: A combined competition consisting of 10 different events ranging from running and throwing feats. USE: Iowa State’s Ethan Wilkins said his best events are the hurdles, high jump and long jump in the decathlon.

Wilkins is a leader on the ISU track and field team for the indoor season in the heptathlon and also for the decathlon in the outdoor season. He is looking forward to the Big 12 Championships coming up in early May in Waco, Texas.
Decathlon athlete finishing strong Wilkins works for final push before end of outdoor season
By Isaac.Copley @iowastatedaily.com Ethan Wilkins has been a jack of all trades in track and field competitions since coming to Iowa State from Hamilton High School in Memphis, Tenn. Wilkins, currently in his final season as a Cyclone, has started off the outdoor season with a winning mentality. Wilkins finished first at the Cal Multis in four of the 10 decathlon events, winning the 110-meter hurdles, the pole vault, high jump and long jump. “I didn’t compete in the decathlon in high school; I started decathlons when I came to college,” Wilkins said. During the indoor season, athletes compete in the heptathlon, which is made up of seven events. In the outdoor season, the athletes compete in the decathlon, which is made up of 10 events. Performance in the decathlon and heptathlon is judged on a points system in each event, points are not determined by position achieved, but rather by individual performance. Combining scores from all events determines who is the winner of the entire competition. Decathlon events run on a strict schedule: Day one consists of the 100-meter dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400-meter dash and day two con-
sists of the 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1,500-meter run. Heptathlons also take place during a two-day span and include the 100-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200-meter dash, long jump, javelin throw and 800-meter run. Competing in the decathlon and heptathlon is often an interesting event, where some athletes are much more talented in running events than throwing and jumping events or better at throwing events than others. Wilkins, who tailors his strategy more around jumps and sprints, knows how important it is to win the events in which he competes best in. “I’d say the hurdles, high jump and long jump are my strengths,” Wilkins said. “It’s important to perform well in those events.” Pete Herber, the jumps and multi-event specialist coach at Iowa State, has coached Wilkins during his time at Iowa State. Wilkins has achieved All-Big 12 honors under Herber, and the coach hopes he will improve from his fifth-place finish at the 2012 Big 12 Outdoor Championships. “Ethan’s just been a really good kid for us and a very good leader for the multi-event group,” Herber said. “Going into the Big 12s, we expect him to get on the stand and score some points for us.” Junior college is what initially brought Wilkins to the state, as he competed for Iowa Central Community College before transferring to Iowa State in 2011. Wilkins won the NJCAA title in the heptathlon in 2011 and was runner-up in the NJCAA in the decathlon in 2010.
Success under Herber Pete Herber came to Iowa State in 2007 after starting his coaching career at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Herber has been successful at Iowa State on both the women’s and men’s sides of the team. In 2011-12, Herber coached four Cyclone athletes to All-Big 12 honors including Wilkins and Hannah Willms, who earned second-team All-America honors in the women’s high jump in 2010-11. “We expect all our kids to give us good results and get on the stand, all of our kids going to the meet we want to score some points for us,” Herber said.
A fourth-place finish in the heptathlon at the Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championships in Ames shows that Wilkins has improved in all areas of his training. “I’m just trying to stay fit, healthy, eating right and really working to improve my form,” Wilkins said. Wilkins is aiming to lead the Cyclones in the decathlon at the Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships looming in early May in Waco, Texas. Teammate Matt Harmeyer believes the decathlon group will perform well. “For the most part, we’re a group of guys that bring a lot of talents to the table,” Harmeyer said. “I think we really feed off each other and we really work together.”
Past to now, golfer has big hopes for future By Lauren.Hedrick @iowastatedaily.com As a young girl growing up in Thailand, senior women’s golfer Punpaka Phuntumabamrung never thought she’d be where she is now. Phuntumabamrung, or ‘Bo’ as she is known by her family and friends, always liked to play any kind of sport. But once she picked up her first golf club, the talent came naturally. “I started playing [golf] when I was like 5 or 6, but I couldn’t compete until I was 9,” Phuntumabamrung said. With her mom’s clubs strapped to her back, Phuntumabamrung quickly rolled onto the competitive golf scene and, in 2007, went on to represent a Thailand International team in the Seo Games in Asia, a smaller version of the Olympics. “We beat the record and individual record,” Phuntumabamrung said. “I was just glad to be a part of that and represent Thailand.” Although Phuntumabamrung knew she loved the game, she struggled to decide what to do after high school. The universities in Thailand don’t support women’s sports, compelling most women to participate in a lot of junior golf tournaments. But coming to the United States was an afterthought. “I never planned on coming to study abroad because it’s so different than back home,” Phuntumabamrung said. “I knew I was going to miss my friends and family.” After much thought and consideration, Phuntumabamrung decided to make the move to become a Cyclone to drive her dreams of becoming pro. “It’s a better opportunity if I want to continue playing golf, a better feel,” Phuntumabamrung said. “I knew it’d be more challenging.” The challenges proved minimal as Phuntumabamrung began what would be a record-breaking freshman year. Phuntumabamrung competed
in all 12 tournaments as a true freshman and recorded the fourth-best rookie-scoring stint in ISU history with a 77.56 stroke average. She continued to break the ISU record for lowest 18-hole round with a 67 at the Challenge at Onion Creek and logged a top-10 finish at the Big 12 Championships with a 223, the second-lowest finish for a Cyclone in Big 12 Championship history, earning her Big 12 All-Tournament honors. “She’s grown so much in the time that she’s been here,” said ISU coach Christine Martens. “I’m just really happy for her and the progress that she’s made.” Phuntumabamrung sustained that success throughout her sophomore and junior years as she accumulated eight top-10 finishes. She earned First-Team Academic All-Big 12 rank and took home first place at the A-Class Open in Thailand in 2011. Phuntumabamrung tallied the best-stroke average on the team in spring 2012 at 75.28 and posted her best career finish of 220, placing for second at the Lady Buckeye Spring invitational in Ohio, her most accomplished finish of her college years. “It was raining and so cold that year, but I remember I told myself that no matter what, I was going to play well,” Phuntumabamrung said. “And I did; it was my best finish.” Martens said she is proud of the leader and the person that Phuntumabamrung has become. “She’s our senior and I’m so proud of the leader she has become for our team,” Martens said. It wasn’t long before Martens brought up Phuntumabamrung’s definite consistency. “She’s extremely consistent, she has one of the best short games in the country — she’s in the top 20 for total short game,” Martens said. “Everyone on our team learns from her every time we’re out there.” Several other accomplishments build Phuntumabamrung’s

resume, both golf-related and not. Phuntumabamrung said her biggest golf accomplishment in her college years has been her short game, but coming to Iowa State has provided her biggest life accomplishment so far: Learning to adapt to a completely unknown, foreign place. “Adapting to a new culture [was difficult] because it’s so much different, but it’s also good to learn new things,” Phuntumabamrung said. Learning began immediately after her arrival in the states. Phuntumabamrung said she could barely speak English and catching up in class was very difficult. Thankfully, her team was there to help. “My teammates and coaches all support me really well,” Phuntumabamrung said. “I got lucky that we have a really good team here.” Phuntumabamrung described that after freshman year, she better understood the American society and it was fun to learn in a new way. “All of my teams and people in Iowa are so nice compared to other places, I think I’m pretty lucky,” Phuntumabamrung said. Junior Prima Thammaraks said the team is just as lucky to have Phuntumabamrung. “Phuntumabamrung is a really good golfer, she has always held out
her end. We always have high expectations for her and she always lives up to it,” Thammaraks said. As for her plans after college, Phuntumabamrung said she dreams of going pro. “I do plan on turning pro but I haven’t decided where, or which tour,” Phuntumabamrung said. “It all depends on my golf game and how well I can play.” Phuntumabamrung’s competitive edge is a drive for her constant success and consistency, which will come in handy for the Big 12 Championship on Friday through Sunday at The Harvester in Rhodes, Iowa, which is a well-known, familiar course for the Cyclones. “When it comes down to golf game, it’s about how much you do in that particular game,” Phuntumabamrung said. “It’s about your game that day.” Phuntumabamrung has struggled in the past with maintaining confidence and positivity throughout tournaments, but now that Big 12 tournament is here, she’s ready to play. “Overall, I feel pretty good with my game,” Phuntumabamrung said. “I would say I kind of get stressed a bit, but I know there’s nothing I should be too worried about. I’m ready to go out and play.”

The combined forces of the California and Montreal Guitar Trios will hit the stage of Stephens Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The two trios each started independently in Los Angeles and Montreal, both earning reputations as two of the most prolific touring/ recording guitar trios, touring all over the globe. The California Guitar Trio formed in 1991 while the Montreal Guitar Trio formed in 1998. It was in 2010, though, when the six guitarists first met each other in Oregon, leaving on the same plane. After a studio session later in Montreal, the chemistry bore the start of a tour partnership. “We’ve been touring with them for the past few years,” Paul Richards said, a member of California Guitar Trio. “Each group has its own wide repertoire. California Guitar Trio does steel string and has wider influences. Montreal Guitar Trio plays nylon strings and mainly classical music.”
Together, the trios have performed at such places as the world renowned Montreal Jazz Festival twice, New York, the Napa Valley Opera House and most of the states and major provinces of Canada. In 2011, the sextet recorded “Montreal Guitar Trio + California Guitar Trio Live,” which is available for purchase at all of their concerts. While each group has its own material, the trios play together on tour and play a wide range of covers during their shows. Richards said the music is a 50-50 split between originals and covers. “It’s really exciting,” Richards said. “Each show is different and there’s a high level of playing and expertise. That excitement translates in our playing and to our audience.” For Glenn Levesque, one of the guitarists for Montreal Guitar Trio, the excitement of performing with the trios stems from the chemistry they share on stage, which he said is his favorite part of touring. “We’re like musical brothers and it’s so easy to perform together,” Levesque said. “I remember the first time we met and rehearsed, it was

magical. It was like we had been playing together for a long time.” With decades of experience as musicians, both Richards and Levesque promise that their show isn’t a spectacle one should miss. “Our music is a wedding between various musical forms,” Levesque said. “That’s a mixture between pas-
sionate music and virtuosity with a stealthy sense of humor. That’s how we charmed the ears and captured the hearts of the audience.” To learn more about the California and Montreal Guitar trios and to purchase tickets, go to the Stephens Auditorium box office or purchase tickets online.
Alumna Housley honors best friend through book By Nicole. Presley @iowastatedaily.com ISU alumna Bree Housley will be at the Iowa State Book Store at 11 a.m. Friday to sign her new book. Housley’s new book, “We Hope You Like This Song,” tells her journey in honoring her best friend Shelly’s memory. Shelly died at the age of 25 due to complications from preeclampsia. After her death, Housley felt like she was not doing enough to
honor her best friend. After a conversation with some of her friends at a bar one evening, Housley knew what she needed to do to pay tribute to her memory. “We Hope You Like This Song” endeavors on Housley’s one-year journey to keep the memory of Shelly alive and act like her best friend. Housley describes herself as having nerd-like qualities while Shelly had the outgoing and fun personality. “It’s just that kind of
standing back and watching people who were comfortable in social situations and in class when you had to pick a partner for things,” Housley said. “I would always hang back, very self-conscious.” The first memory Housley recalls of their friendship was in the fourth grade. Shelly and Housley were waiting on their fathers after a music program they had performed in school. Shelly took Housley’s hand and they skipped to the drinking fountain. On their
way they made up a song; “We’re going to get a drink A drink a drink We’re going to get a drink And we hope you like this song.” “Ten years later we would still sing it at random times,” Housley said. Thus the title of the book was named. “I just felt it was really meaningful to me,” Housley said. The year-and-a-half process to write the book was the therapy Housley needed. While writing the book, Housley was excited to sit
down and write it every night. The memories were easy to remember, but hard to write down. “I’m not really a crier,” Housley said. “But just finally letting it all out a bit really got to me. It was hard but in a good way.” Now with her first book out, she plans on writing another book. The plans of the future book are unknown, but it will be a more “safestyle” and fun instead of the personal style like “We Hope You Like This Song.”

Game: ‘Bioshock Ininite’
By Maggie McGinity
By Devin Pacini
By Maia Zewert
OneRepublic’s third studio album, “Native,” is a mixed bag of alternately moody and peppy pop rock. About half of the album is great music. “Feel Again,” the lead single, is an upbeat songstory. The second single, “If I Lose Myself,” is synth-heavy and driving. Other gems include “I Lived,” and “Something I Need.” The rest of the tracks are fairly boring and monotonous. They generally blend together, flowing nicely but not really leaving an impact on the listener. “Counting Stars,” the first track on this album, is somewhat redeemed by its melody and provocative lyrics, but its dream of counting stars instead of dollars rings a bit false when coming from a band whose debut album sold more than a million copies. “What You Wanted” is also redeemed by somewhat shocking lyrics.
I was expecting a lot from “Bioshock Infinite.” This game takes you to the sky to Columbia. You play as a man, Dewitt, trying to save Elizabeth from the city, but unlike the previous “Bioshock,” the lead male protagonist has a vague notion about what he’s getting himself into. Elizabeth, the lead female protagonist, doesn’t just play the role of “damsel in distress.” Wanting to escape, she readily assists you, being a strong ally throughout. They add some nice new things. Clothing gives you effects and being able to pick which set works for how you play can help you through the game. Any complaints I do have just add up to nitpicking. The game is a lot of fun and you don’t have to play any previous games in the series to know what’s going on in this one.
There’s something about prequels that make me skeptical. This can be said for Hannibal Lector, taking center stage in the prequel series “Hannibal,” airing at 9 p.m. Thursdays on NBC. “Hannibal” follows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). Graham is brought back into the world of criminal profiling by Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne). When Graham struggles Crawford brings in the assistance of criminal psychiatrist Hannibal Lector (Mads Mikkelsen). I know what will happen, thanks to “Silence of the Lambs.” Those unfamiliar with “Silence of the Lambs” will still enjoy the show. No matter where you fall, it’s worth giving “Hannibal” a shot. It’s fast-paced and quick to catch up. A word of caution: A scene where he prepares himself dinner made me reconsider the fact that I ate before deciding to review the episode.

Fun Facts New York Tribune founder Horace Greeley is best known for saying, “Go West, young man.” Problem is, he didn’t say it. The quote actually came from Indiana newspaper editor John B.L. Soule. In fact, Greeley’s own comments regarding the West were less than encouraging. In 1859, while traveling across Utah, he wrote, “The desolation seems irredeemable.” Twelve years later, he proclaimed, “This Daniel Boone business is about played out.” According to a 2012 New York Times story, 1% of Americans still get on the Internet with an AOL dial-up connection.

Near the event horizon of a black hole (the boundary in spacetime surrounding said black hole), “spaghettification” will occur, stretching matter into thin strips.

Horoscope by Linda C. Black Today’s Birthday (04.18.13) All this network buzz inspires participation. Word travels farther for the next six months, so get it out. Direct this energy homeward. Spend time with friends and family, interspersed with introspection. Respectfully ride out changes with grace. Choose what you get, and create what you want. Include love. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 7 -- Even in the face of confrontation, access your cool head and glide past old barriers. There are calmer winds ahead. Celebrate with a home-cooked meal and cozy couch time.
