21-year-old dies after four-story fall By Trevor.Werner @iowastatedaily.com One visitor to our campus came upon tragedy Saturday in Campustown. Mitchell Odell, 21, of Cedar Rapids fell four stories from a balcony at 2519 Chamberlain. He suffered multiple blunt force traumas to the head and was later pronounced
dead at Mary Greeley Medical Center. “This is a tragedy, and our sincere sympathy goes out to the family and friends of the young man.” said Luke Jensen, apartment manager for 2519 Chamberlain. He had no further information to give. A similar event occurred at the same apartment complex six years ago when Benjamin Peterson died in a similar way.
Odell was visiting friends on campus this weekend for the Veishea celebration when the event occurred. “It was an unfortunate and tragic accident,” said Tom Hill, vice president for student affairs. “But while safety is the number one concern for the Veishea committee, they cannot account for what people do at their own apartments.”
He went on to state that Veishea itself was not to blame for this accident. “All events planned for Veishea are alcohol free,” Hill said. “But this is a good reminder that safety needs to always be on the forefront of our minds during Veishea and not placed on the back burner.”

Provost forums welcomes Manderscheid By Katelynn McCollough Daily staff writer The second open forum for Iowa State’s senior vice president and provost search will be for David Manderscheid, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The forum will be at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Pioneer Room of the Memorial Union. The forum offers a chance for students, faculty and staff to ask questions and hear Manderscheid’s ideas for the position. Manderscheid has been the dean of the College of LAS and a professor of mathematics at UNL since 2007. Before taking on his position at UNL, Manderscheid worked for the University of Iowa, beginning in 1985. At this time he was a visiting assistant professor and the National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow. From 1997 to 2001 he served as the associate chairman and director of the graduate program for Iowa’s math department. In 2001 he was named the chair of the department of mathematics until he left six years later for UNL. Manderscheid received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Michigan State University in 1976. He then earned a doctorate in mathematics from Yale University in 1981. This will be the second of three open forums for the provost and vice president of Iowa State. The first open forum for Jonathan Wickert, dean of College of Engineering at Iowa State, was Monday. The third and final open forum will be Friday for Carlo Montemagno. This forum will begin at 10:45 a.m. in the Memorial Union Gallery.

Tornadoes: the freight trains of nature. New research is trying to help understand these seemingly random events of destruction. Bill Gallus, professor of geological and atmospheric sciences, explains his research. “One goal is to better understand how tornado winds change as tornadoes go up or down hills and mountains.” Christopher Karstens, a doctoral student studying under Gallus, has been studying the effects of a deadly tornado that occurred in Alabama almost a year ago, trying to accomplish this goal. This tornado is special in that its path took it through a very hilly and heavily wooded terrain. This path resulted in interesting effects on the tornado as well as the winds around it. “Trees fell in a valley channel that was extending away from where the primary damage spots were, well away from where the tornado actually occurred, but it was connected to it,” Karstens said.
The forums for finalists in the search for Iowa State’s new vice president and provost began with Jonathan Wickert on Monday. Wickert’s was the first of three forums. Wickert, dean of the College of Engineering at Iowa State, gave a presentation outlining his vision for the job and answering questions from faculty, staff and students. Wickert said his time in a leadership position in the College of
Engineering will aid him should he get the provost position. “The College of Engineering is large in scope with 7,000 students,” he said in his opening remarks. “That’s larger than many towns in Iowa. It’s a program of significant scale.” Wickert said one area of focus in this job would be on business operations and collaboration efforts. He cited the example of the collaboration between the College of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in terms of blended online

Professor evaluations not just for venting By Kayla.Kienzle @iowastatedaily.com It’s the time of year for course evaluations. Although students may use them as a tool for ranting or flattery, departments take course evaluations very seriously. Each department offers some kind of course evaluation. After students fill out evaluations, instructors and directors go over the sheets and assess the information. “We use them to help improve courses, especially if it’s a new course,” said Kathy Leonard, professor of Spanish. Jane Peterson, associate director of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, said she looks at course evaluations to
see if professors are meeting expectations. “They have to show that they are doing quality work, not only teaching, but also researching and service in and outside the university,” Peterson said. Peterson goes over evaluations with teachers and addresses needs based on feedback from students. “Feedback can affect salary increases, promotions and tenure,” Peterson said. Not only do the reviews help teachers’ performances, but they also help directors and instructors evaluate effectiveness of the course in itself. “For example, if students said the textbook was not useful, we’ll look into other options,” Peterson said. “Sometimes that’s easier said than done.”
>>TORNADO.p1 This brought him to start examining aerial photographs of the affected area, looking specifically at the patterns the trees fell in. “Trees are a very good damage indicator,” Karstens said. “They are very widespread; they’re consistent, and they stick around a while.” What is meant by ‘they stick around a while’ is that they are not a large focus for cleanup crews, who usually overlook the fallen trees until other, more pressing issues are dealt with. “People start cleaning up within five minutes. That makes it tough for people who are looking at the damage in a sort of forensic sense,” Karstens said. “It’s not like we can tell people to not clean up their stuff.” This makes the tree fall important
>>PROVOST.p1 classes. “We have been able to offer more courses with higher quality at a lower cost,” Wickert said. Challenges facing the university were also a major topic Wickert addressed in his remarks. Navigating the university through state budget cuts in a student-focused way will be one of his areas of emphasis, along with maintaining a close relationship with state citizens and legislators to ensure Iowa State is meeting their expectations of efficiency in higher education. “We have growing enrollment and capacity, which is a good problem to have,” Wickert said. “But it creates pressure to be proactive and to engage everyone in addressing [the problems].”
Peterson personally takes the comments students leave into heavy consideration. “If they took the time to write it, it probably has value,” Peterson said. However, not all comments are as useful. “Someone who is taking shots at a professor, for example about what they wear, is probably just saying that because they didn’t like the instructor,” Peterson said. Leonard agreed it is sometimes hard to decipher comments. “Our assessments ask how many classes a student missed and their expected grade,” Leonard said. “That can sometimes help us see if their comments correlate.” Sometimes even professors who consistently receive high reviews return negative
and a key part of the research. But tree fall itself cannot bring about enough information. For that, Karstens made a scale model of the Alabama terrain out of foam. He then placed the foam model underneath Iowa State’s tornado simulator. Although the testing is still fairly preliminary at this point, the terrain is appearing to have an effect on the tornado. “It’s opening my eyes at least, as well as the eyes’ of many others who do similar work, as to what kind of damage patterns to expect in very rough or mountain terrain,” Karstens said. “One of the things that this work re-emphasizes is that tornadostrength winds can extend well away from the actual tornado.” Although hills have been known to
The legacy left by former President Gregory Geoffroy and Executive Vice President and Provost Elizabeth Hoffman were heavily emphasized, the resounding remark from Wickert being that “nothing is broken here.” “The role of provost is a job of empowerment — arranging jobs on campus so faculty, staff, and students can excel,” he said. “We set standards and a bar for excellence to arrange for a stimulating place to work and study.” To close out his remarks, Wickert said Iowa State can expect three specific things from him if he becomes the new provost. “You can count on me to have a focus on academic excellence, collaboration and to be very student-centered,” he said. “Students are why we come to work everyday. I’ll still teach, and I’ll meet with stu-

dents regularly in my office After his remarks, Wickert answered questions from the crowd. What he learned from his time at previous issues and the issues of promotion and tenure were common themes, along with how to provide enough funding in order to avoid a cap in enrollment. “The case for state appropriations needs to be made year-round, not just in the spring when the legislature is in session,” he said in regards to questions about funding. “We need to show that we’re using our current resources at full capacity.” Wickert also said one of his first orders of business in the role of provost will be to meet with each college and department within Iowa State in order to better understand the challenges and concerns facing students and faculty in

comments. “Rarely do I see all exactly the same comments,” Peterson said. “It’s important to see where the truth lies — it’s somewhere within the extremes.” Peterson also said, if there is an attitude conflict, students should take initiative early in the semester. “Students and faculty don’t always get along, but [the students] need to figure out what to do to make it better,” Peterson said. Course evaluations are not only used to assess current staff but also new instructors departments are considering hiring. Although, it is rare instructors to be fired, they do have to prove competence. “We want our instructors to have made a national
reputation for themselves,” Peterson said. If instructors have not received satisfactory remarks, measures are taken to help them improve. Most frequently, teachers are referred to the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning on campus to help them improve. Departments also work within to achieve effectiveness. “We use [the Center], but we also use peer evaluations, when other professors visit classes and observe the professor teaching,” Leonard said. Although unclear on how the form’s questions are generated, Iowa State requires them for nearly every department. In her 20 years at Iowa State, Leonard has not seen a change in the questionnaire. Things may change in the future, as Iowa State is pushing for more
online evaluations. Peterson is unsure how the return rate will be affected. “[The Greenlee School] put all our evaluations online last summer and didn’t get as good of a return rate,” Peterson said. “More things need to be thought through and worked out.” Both agreed it will be difficult to measure the return rate until all evaluations are online. “Although it’s being pushed, if they aren’t required, that may be an issue,” Leonard said. Either way, online or in Scantron format, there is evidence that departments pay attention to what students are saying. “Many professors could make more money working in their industry, they want to be here and want to know what you need,” Peterson said.

those areas. One of the final questions asked by the audience asked what Wickert will do if he and current ISU President Steven Leath disagree over a certain issue, and how he will reduce
friction. He said he looks forward to having a great and open relationship with Leath as provost. “We may not always see eye-to-eye, but we will share and talk through things,”
Wickert said in response. “We’ll explain issues and why the decision was made.” “In regards to friction, I’m an engineer. A mechanical engineer. Part of my job is to reduce friction.”

Land-grant mission is lost in legislature Public education is about much more than giving universities state appropriations for their operations. Iowa State is a land-grant college. Begun to fulfill the Morrill Act’s goal of creating in each state and funded either from renting out tracts of land or selling it and investing the profits, Iowa State is supposed to be the college in Iowa that combines technical learning that is useful in crafting the world around us and the classical education that is necessary to make a difference. Public education is not about subsidies. It is about service. Recently, the state legislature and Board of Regents have come under fire for a number of practices regarding educational policy. The Regents require Iowa State, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa to set aside a certain portion of each student’s tuition to provide scholarships to other students. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives, Senate and Gov. Terry Branstad cannot agree on how much money to give the Regents universities and how much to give students who attend Iowa’s private colleges and universities. Last year, when the Regents universities received nearly $500 million, the Iowa Tuition Grant program gave about $49 million to 18,000 students. It’s good the state of Iowa deems education so important. For a long time, our state was a leader in educating its citizens at all ages. By helping so many students pursue higher education, Iowa lives up to the words appearing on our state quarter: “Foundation in education.” But state support for the students enrolled in private colleges is no substitute for the legislature taking a more active, interested role — both for appropriations and other involvement — in Iowa’s Regents universities. Education is about more than going to class, graduating and getting a job. To say that education should be pursued with concern only for economic incentives — in other words, only for money — ignores aspects of life that are beyond our mere survival. Doctors, lawyers and clergy are all members of professions. All members of each of those classes take oaths upon being admitted to work not for their interest, but for others. As a country, we have believed, since Thomas Jefferson’s time, that citizenship is in a way a profession. There is more to citizenship than simply getting a good job and paying taxes. It involves consideration for others and for the character of our interactions — a vision land-grant colleges were chartered to protect. As the state considers its appropriations for the coming year, the legislature should remember this is a vision worth protecting.

Take legal action on bullying
Photo courtesy of Thinkstock
oming out as who you feel you really are is an amazing thing. Self-actualization and embracing it is one of the greatest feelings on the planet. I remember the times my friends came out to me about their sexuality, and I even received a residual uplifting feeling because another person in this world felt comfortable in his or her own skin. The bullying that has been happening across the nation against teens that choose to come out is cruel and cowardly, and I want little more than to confront those simple-minded bigots and crush their little worlds with logic and rationale. But I’m a vindictive person, and actions like that only fuel the problem. Whoever said, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” was a moron. Words are more powerful than anything else on this planet, except for love and music. With the power of words being understood, I have to say this crusade against bullying is well-intentioned but heading in the wrong direction. Iowa high school freshman Kenneth Weishuhn Jr.’s suicide was a heartbreaking incident and should have been avoided. The school failed, parents failed, and education about how to deal with harassment failed. Kenneth was harassed at school, and the teachers stood in the hall in response to complaints that slurs were being used. The school even had an assembly to address bullying and harassment. Those measures are missing the most vital action schools must undertake in incidents or harassment: Schools must enforce disciplinary action. If there is a report of a student harassing another student, the school must bring in the student in question and warn them. If the harassment continues, that student should be disciplined. If any more harassment occurs or if it escalates, the student should be turned over to legal authorities and, at the least, suspended or even kicked out of the school. And the school must document all of these events and keep them on record. It doesn’t have to happen just like that, but having an assembly and posting teachers is an irresponsible response from what I see as a terribly flawed and uneducated group of so-called overseers of youth. Jeannie Chambers, Kenneth’s mother, said the school did not alert her to the harassment
By Gabriel.Stoffa @iowastatedaily.com her son was facing, adding that she also didn’t alert the school about her son’s harassment due to her son asking her not to, according to an article in The Washington Post. Jeannie also said Kenneth was worried that, if she intervened, the harassment would get worse, that the harassing students had changed their focus to a pregnant girl. If alerting the school causes the harassment to escalate or doesn’t spur the school to action, then the police and the media need to be alerted to negligence on the part of the school system. Heeding the wishes of your children is important, but this is not one of those times. This is potentially an illegal activity that could be endangering a child’s life. And since when is it OK to ignore something because it isn’t your child being harassed but someone else’s? A pregnant girl needs as much protection from harassment as does a gay student. And as to the parents of the harassing students, where are they? The school should have notified those parents and those parents should be sitting down with their kids to explain, if nothing else, that harassment could bring on legal repercussions. The school said it has no plans to change its policies and will explore further ways to make students understand bullying is not acceptable, according to an article on Fox News. School reactions with such lack of action demonstrate the school is poorly managed and unaware that to provide a quality education, the learning environment must be safe and able to allow all students to focus on learning. Schools and parents and advocacy groups need to focus a little less on their efforts to make people aware bullying is bad, and focus a whole lot more on helping people to stand strong, to understand their rights and to fully comprehend suicide is the worst decision. Suicide because of harassment is the choice to ignore options and take the easy way out. It is a harsh truth, but it is. Suicide is letting the
bigots, the bullies, win. Suicide is setting an example of hopelessness and further damaging the resolve of others being harassed. Being bullied is a part of growing up, a harsh part, but a part nevertheless. The world is not perfect. People are mean, and you have to be able to stand strong against the bastards of the world and live your life finding happiness despite the haters. Almost everyone is a bully at one point, and many of us did that bullying while we were in grade school. You might not have been a bully to those embracing their sexuality, but you might have been because of someone’s hygiene or social standing or appearance. At the same time, most everyone has been harassed at some point. It hurts, but you have to do something about it; be that by alerting authorities or through confrontation. Keeping your mouth shut and hoping something stops might be easier to do, but it is an ill-conceived decision. Kenneth was receiving threatening phone calls, messages and online comments. Those are all illegal activities. Educating about how bad bullying is isn’t going to stop those things. People are going to be horrible no matter how much you try to enlighten them. To help curb the bullying, you have to take action in the legal form. You have to put yourself out in the open and make your situation known. You have to protest and write your government representatives and your media. It isn’t easy, but hardly anything that brings change for the better is. When people will not respond to words to understand the damage their actions do, you must use the law, especially if violence or threatened violence is involved. As long as people believe their actions are not going to get them into serious trouble, they will continue with their behavior. To stop bullying, we need to continue to teach people to accept all others despite differences. But with that, we need to actively protect our rights and keep ourselves and those we care about safe by keeping everyone informed about their rights and how to protect them. Bullies respond to one thing: power. And the power that most bullies cannot overcome is legal power.

If you haven’t had the chance to see this amazing movie, I highly encourage you to go as they are showing it in our very own Ames theater. If you have seen it, I would still consider going to see it on the big screen to get the full experience of what this film has to offer. Set in World War II era French Morocco, “Casablanca” follows the journey of Rick, the American bar owner, and Ilsa, his former lover and wife of Victor Lazlo, a resistance leader. Viewers are swept away in the passionate love Rick has for Ilsa, her devotion to Lazlo’s cause and the ever-present theme of duty. For a refreshing difference from the sickening, everyday movies we see now, “Casablanca”
By Jessica.Bruning @iowastatedaily.com shows us that love does not conquer all. That, in fact, sometimes duty does come before love. That love is not the all powerful, romanticized concept that is continually shoved down our throats today. So, what makes this movie able to stay popular for so many years? I, in fact, knew one-liners from it long before I ever saw the film. Lines such as “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Or “We’ll always have Paris.” It is still romantic. It is an attainable feeling where we can sympathize with Rick’s agony over his lost love and his duty to let her go. It invokes a sense of patriotism and heroism in us. In a 1982 endeavor called “The Great Script Tease,” Chuck
Ross actually changed the title to “Everybody Comes to Rick’s,” the original title of the film, and sent the script to various film agencies. Of 217 agencies, 33 even recognized the script. Some were returned for other various reasons such as company policies. However, 38 agencies actually rejected the film saying: “I just think you need to rework it. ... You have excessive dialogue at times.” “I think the dialogue could have been sharper, and I think the plot had a tendency to ramble. It could’ve been tighter and there could have been a cleaner line to it.” “Story line is thin. Too much dialogue for amount of action. Not enough highs and lows in the script.” Yes. The film that won Best Picture in 1943 was actually rejected by the people producing the movies we watch today. This experiment was conducted 30 years ago. However, I think we can still get an idea of how the priorities of the movie industry
and its customers have shifted. We demand constant entertainment. We want endless drama and action to amuse us instead of being able to sit back and let a real story develop. We are no longer able to have the attention span required to listen to what is being said, we need to see it all instead. “Casablanca” is my favorite movie. I love Humphrey Bogart, the glistening eyes of Ingrid Bergman, the song “As Time Goes By” that is sung in the raspy voice of Dooley Wilson, the romanticism of love lost, and the patriotism and sense of duty in it all. In celebration of 70 years of this film, we have the chance to remember and relive it all once again. Because really, how can you pass up Bogie looking into his lovers’ eyes and raising a glass, “Here’s looking at you kid.”

Letter to the editor
File photo: Huiling Wu/Iowa State Daily Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad answers questions after the discussion titled “The Truth: Lean Finely Textured Beef” hosted by the ISU Block and Bridle Club on April 10 at the Farm Bureau Pavilion.
The Daily disappoints with beef forum editorial Photo courtesy of Thinkstock Two television shows, “Antiques Roadshow” and “Pawn Stars,” deal with the same subject matter differently and illustrate a clash in class and manners.
Class warfare still persists in television A ccusations of class warfare are one of the most common rhetorical tools of politics. Preoccupation with economic class is not new to our political life. Its presence in our political discourse dates to the ratification debates on the Constitution in 1787 and 1788. Then, the Anti-Federalists’ concern was that merchants, bankers, lawyers and manufacturers, especially from the mid-Atlantic states and New England, would be advantaged by the new system. The Federalists feared that mob democracy would rule the country in the interests of the masses rather than the public good. Unease about the possibility of class warfare persists even now. Since running for the presidency in 2007, Barack Obama has consistently invoked fairness and used the middle class in his rhetoric, insisting that policies should protect the middle class. Republicans have insisted that Obama and the Democrats are, by so strongly supporting the middle class, waging a class war against job creators. While slavery was a key issue before the Civil War, sectional antagonisms between North and South were aggravated by the different economic bases of the two regions. The class warfare there became relevant because the different kinds of economy (industrial vs. agrarian) engendered different sectional attitudes about appropriate political conduct and social manners. While the prospect of political class warfare is bad, it is not the worst thing. Laws can be repealed or amended by new Congresses when elections seat new members. The more dangerous kind of class warfare goes on in the social world, where the manners we all use are formed and solidified and make the basis on which we interact politically. “Class” does not refer only to economic class. In its social definition, “class” implies grace and manners. Applied to individuals, it denotes a gentleman or a lady. Using that definition, two television shows dealing in the same subject matter differently illustrate a clash of manners. Similarly, class warfare is also at work among our television programming. The History Channel has increasingly adopted reality
By Michael.Belding @iowastatedaily.com TV programming that centers on shows such as “Pawn Stars.” The show, I’ll grant, is interesting. At a pawn shop in Las Vegas, hundreds of customers daily bring artifacts to the store and the shop’s employees determine what the thing is, tell us something about it and give an idea of its value. In some ways, “Pawn Stars” and the others are reminiscent of one of my favorite shows, “Antiques Roadshow.” But the two are fundamentally different, and diverge at important points. “Antiques Roadshow,” begun in Britain, has been running since 1979. It and its American counterpart, began in 1997, is operated by public broadcasters whose interest is not merely pecuniary. On public television, the shows don’t exist for the sake of a profit margin. Realizing the success of “Pawn Stars,” however, the History Channel has begun an additional incarnation of the show in Louisiana. On “Antiques Roadshow,” people bring in their family heirlooms as a point of curiosity: How much would this piece of furniture, this letter or this lamp fetch at auction, or for how much money should it be insured? On “Pawn Stars,” the store’s visitors want to either sell or pawn their items. Their interest is in money. They tell their stories about how they acquired the objects, but those stories take the opposite role they do in “Antiques Roadshow.” There, the stories are the primary interest and the value is secondary. On “Pawn Stars,” value is primary and the stories often sound as mere bits of trivial information or like a question asked for formality’s sake. While “Pawn Stars” does often make use of experts in some fields, they are not the main focus. Primarily, customers deal with the store’s employees. On “Antiques Roadshow,” visitors talk with experts who constantly appear on the show and, consequently, are able to cultivate a personality that goes beyond their ability to place an economic value on an object.
Part of “Antiques Roadshow’s” draw is that it travels from place to place, so it showcases a wide variety of locales. “Pawn Stars” is a victim of its immobility. Being situated in Las Vegas means that one of the most common comments from the people who walk into the store is that they need the money for their vacation or for their gambling funds. Simply put, “Antiques Roadshow” is a more classy endeavor, putting its emphasis on things bigger than money or an individual, such as the human experience and connections to the past; “Pawn Stars” is more like any other TV show whose goal is to satisfy viewers’ entertainment wants and do so by discussing money. The Constitution prevents a legally sanctioned nobility, but that does not mean we should also reject an aristocracy of manners or refuse to prioritize some of them over others. Perhaps that is what our polarized political rhetoric or tolerance for minority groups and individuals who do not fit into our definitions of “normal” depend on. An aristocracy of manners, where we all recognized that some behaviors are preferable to others, might do us some good. Results aren’t everything. How we get there is important, too.

In recent weeks, Iowa State’s very own Block and Bridle club brought a campaign forum right here to campus in efforts to support “lean finely textured beef” in order to battle the misconceptions and educate the public. After attending this forum, I was proud to call this great place home because I know it is here we fight for the truth and strive to be the best producers in our industry. Supplying the world with safe cheap food is no easy task and to be undermined by smear campaigns is yet another hurdle we face in the process. The Daily covered the event fully and wrote an excellent article that was on the front page of the next day’s paper. As an avid reader of the Daily, I was sure to grab a copy and read the article. It was a few days later, to my dismay as well as a large majority of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences students, that we felt cut down and betrayed by our school paper. An editorial was written by the paper’s editorial board regarding the forum that had taken place. What some people don’t understand is that this is an editorial, meaning opinion. This differs greatly from the article written about the event because that was reporting on what happened, and this the editors’ thoughts about it. As much as I disagreed with what was written about the forum, it still had to be respected that this was the place for an opinionated article. The big topic on everybody’s mind that day was why are they slamming the Beef industry? At this point, I along with my fellow students were angered and very concerned as to why such words were being thrown our way. After all calling it a “pow-pow summit” doesn’t exactly make it sound like a forum to educate the public. Feeling agitated, I made a quick phone call in curiosity to see who wrote this slanderous piece. During that phone call I was quick to ask of the seven people who made up this editorial board, just how many were in attendance. Zero was the reply.
ing to open their ears. My advice to them is if the article can make such a large amount of people think it is about them and not about the political figures within it then maybe it is best to just rewrite it. After finding out the truth about the article I must say it was poorly written if was misconstrued by so many. It is in my hope that, in the future, the words put down on paper are looked at a little more closely and more thought out. With almost 30,000 students on this campus, a bad representation can spread very quickly through the words of a newspaper and even more when it is placed on Internet where virtually anyone can access and read them. As prospective agricultural professionals, our job is to raise, grow and supply the world with affordable and safe food, fuel and fiber. Our consumers need to be educated and know the truth to where these items are coming from. Being involved in this industry means we must also do our part to educate the people. We are passionate about what we do, and if we weren’t, we would not be enrolled in the greatest agricultural school in the nation. Oh and just a nice little reminder: #BeefisBeef.

Consulting the Daily on this was the next move, and they were glad to offer the time to meet with myself and a couple peers to address our concerns about their editorial. At the time, the concern of how someone can develop a piece about an event they never witnessed but only what they heard was at the top of my list. Say what you will about our industry, but you should have a valid reason why. As planned we went through with the meeting and were quick to get to the bottom of the issue. After conversing we were quick to discover the true idea behind the article. It was not meant to put the beef industry under bad light but more so the political celebrities that were there promoting it. This was in the regards to if it is really right for them to be representing a large economic sector. As this did make me feel a small sigh of relief, I still was not very pleased, but to venture down that road is a political opinion upon my part that I am not going to discuss. The editors we had the opportunity to meet with were very courteous and were will-

Industry’s ‘fast fashion’ principle creates materialistic world, over-consumption By Ainsley Chapman ISD Style Writer
Americans are notorious for over-consuming, and their wardrobes aren’t off limits. In an ever increasingly materialistic world filled with shopaholics and hoarders, all this overspending and consumption is contributing to other issues. Mary Lynn Damhorst, professor of apparel, events and hospitality management said part of the problem is companies who focus on fast fashion. Fast fashion is a contemporary term used by the industry that means the cycle of merchandise in stores is replenished about every two weeks, which is much faster than traditional cycles. “It promotes the idea that we have to have something new every two weeks,” she said. “It tells consumers that you constantly need change in your life.” Examples of fast fashion stores would be Forever 21, H&M and ZARA. Damhorst said there can a positive side to fast fashion. It promotes creativity in the fashion industry, which is great for designers and merchandisers, because they can get new styles in stores faster. It also gives consumers more choices when shopping. Fast fashion offers an option for consumers who want the latest trends. “Of course, it brings up the question: Do we really need all this?” Damhorst said.
Just because fast fashion is wasteful, Damhorst said it is unrealistic to think Americans would completely quit spending. There could also be negative sides to buying less. If Americans completely quit consuming at the same rate, the economy would be crash. Owning fewer clothes also means more washing, which can mean a bigger impact on the environment with water wasting. “Any consumer decision has an impact [on the environment],” Damhorst said. Trying to reduce the footprint on the environment set by the textile and apparel industry is quickly becoming a hot topic. “If more consumers thought about the impact that just one item has,” she said, “that would help.” Damhorst said that it is important for consumers to be aware of what they are buying and how it got to them. Consumers may be amazed by the time and labor it takes to get an item of clothing to the stores and into their hands. So what can consumers do to help reduce the impact their wardrobe has on the environment? Damhorst said the answer, like many things, is “not that simple.” Damhorst said she is always optimistic about the future of the apparel and textile industry. “A balance is what is needed.”

A hundred miles for the Hungry

She will be walking from Cedaer Rapids to Ames to raise awareness for Feed Iowa First, an organization she founded to support beginning farmers and to help feed the hungry in Iowa.

>>KENDRICK.p7 port beginning farmers and to help feed the hungry in Iowa, Kendrick said. Feed Iowa First aims to help feed Iowans by creating a stronger local food system. She said the name came from her belief that Iowa should worry more about feeding its residents “There’s a saying that Iowa feeds the world,” Kendrick said. “I just wanted to say, feed Iowa first, then let’s worry about feeding the rest of the world.” Kendrick said Iowa should stop relying so heavily on food exports from other states and countries because it takes the burning of fossil fuels to deliver the food to Iowa, which does not support a sustainable future. She also said Iowa should increase its food production in order to secure a better future for the next generation. “This is a big deal for me because I have kids,” Kendrick said. “I think, ‘What kind of world are they going to be in?’” To reduce Iowa’s dependence on foreign exports and increase food production in the state, Kendrick came up with a plan to help beginning farmers by working with them to farm local gardens in Linn County. She said this will help the farmers gain money and experience for them to later use to get loans to buy their own farmland, something that is difficult for farmers who did not grow up in farming families to accomplish. Kendrick said she created Feed Iowa First to help feed hungry Iowans while also helping beginning farmers. “We need new farmers, and we need food for the people now, so why not combine those two and try to kill two birds with one stone,” Kendrick said. After coming up with the idea, Kendrick’s next task was to figure out where to get the land for the beginning farmers to farm. She said it would take 500 acres of farmland for farmers to produce enough food to feed all those who are hungry in Linn County. Kendrick worked with the Geographic Information Systems Support and Research Facility to find out how much available land there was in Cedar Rapids and its surrounding towns.

Food grown in the garden was distributed through the church’s food pantry, Abundance of Love, and Kendrick hopes to partner with more churches to plant gardens in 2013.
I’m coming from a place where I experienced firsthand the hunger and the need in our communities, and I’m going to bring that message to Iowa State.” - Sonia Kendrick The research showed there were more than 800 acres of under-utilized space surrounding churches in the area. Working with Pastor Allen Biere of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church of Cedar Rapids, Kendrick created a model of what she envisioned for Feed Iowa First. She did this by farming the land located in the backyard of the church and then giving the food produced in the garden to local food pantries. Biere said the Alliance

walking, but still has a sedentary lifestyle. She said she think the journey will be hard. However, she said her feelings will match those who are hungry in Iowa.
“This will be really hard for me, but you know, I think it might represent how it is hard for Iowa. We’re not exactly taking care of ourselves right now, but we’re going to have to
make the extra effort to go the extra mile to make a change,” Kendrick said. “It’s going to hurt. It’s going to be hard, but we really have to think about the future.”

Church and Kendrick share a common vision: to feed the hungry. After a year of working together, Biere said the church and Kendrick now have a wonderful, mutually beneficial relationsip. “I can’t even begin to think how many hours [Kendrick] put in to the project,” Biere said. “[Kendrick] is a dynamic woman with a lot of passion and vision. We admire her tremendously.” Kendrick plans to model Feed Iowa First after her work with the Alliance Church. But, she said she cannot farm all of Iowa. So, Kendrick said she will hire beginning farmers and will work with them for a year. After a year, the farmers will be sent to build urban farms on their own. The farmers will spend two years at the urban farms. At that point, the farmers will have three years of managerial experience, which will enable them to apply for loans to buy their own farmland. After the farmers leave, the original owners of the land will have the choice to continue farming the land or to return it to its original state, Kendrick said. She said she and her fellow Feed Iowa First members will help the owners with whatever they choose to do. To raise awareness for Feed Iowa First, Kendrick plans to walk the same 100-mile route she took to get to classes two to three times a week for the past six semesters. She said she is doing this because Iowa State is the “center of agriculture in Iowa.” “People look to Iowa State for direction in agriculture,” Kendrick said. “I’m coming from a place where I experienced first hand the hunger and the need in our communities, and I’m going to bring that message to Iowa State. And I want to bring that message to our state.” Kendrick said she has been

A guide to Dos and Don’ts of graduation By Katherine.Klingseis @iowastatedaily.com
to compose yourself before the commencement ceremony.
You made it. Graduation is just around the corner. All you have left is the commencement ceremony. Follow these tips to make your commencement as flawless as possible.
Don’t take non-essential items with you to the ceremony
Do arrive on time Soon-to-be graduates must arrive at Hilton and be in the lineup area by 12:45 p.m. to get checked in with the Office of the Registrar’s staff. You don’t want to be rushed and forget something you need, so plan your morning accordingly. Getting to Hilton early will allow you
You won’t be able to take your purses, coats or any other larger item with you to the ceremony. If you bring those items, you’ll have to leave them with your family or friends. So, don’t bring a lot of non-essential items to the ceremony. You don’t want to burden your friends and family with having to take care of a bunch of your stuff. If you do bring your cell phone to the ceremony, make sure that it’s on silent. If it rings during the ceremony it would be disruptive.
Do dress to impress
Do follow instructions
Your outfit may be covered by a gown, but that’s no excuse to not look presentable for the commencement ceremony. The commencement ceremony is a time to be proud of what you have achieved. You should also be proud in what you wear that day, so stick to professional attire.
There will thousands of people at the commencement ceremony. To avoid unnecessary confusion, do what you are told by the Office of the Registrar’s staff and the marshals who will lead you during the ceremony.
Don’t disrespect others
Don’t leave the ceremony early
The commencement ceremony serves as the time for soon-to-be graduates to celebrate their accomplishments with their friends and families. Obnoxious gestures and actions, although funny to you, may be disrespectful to others.
So you were one of the first people across the stage. That doesn’t mean you should leave early. Again, show respect to your fellow graduates. They stayed to watch you walk across the stage. You should respect them and watch them walk across the stage as well.

Saints deny ESPN’s eavesdrop allegations The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints are denying an anonymously sourced ESPN report alleging that general manager Mickey Loomis’ booth was wired so he could listen to opposing coaches’ radio communications during games in the Superdome. ESPN could not determine if the system was ever used. The report on Monday’s “Outside the Lines” says Loomis would have been able to eavesdrop on opponents from 2002 to 2004. The report says the system was disabled in 2005, when the Superdome was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel calls the report “1000 percent false.” Bensel says the Saints and Loomis “are seeking all legal recourse” following the report.

Former Cyclone heads to Olympics
Hopefuls utilized training at ISU By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com
Jake Varner had his hand raised on Saturday night as the only former Cyclone who earned a berth to represent the United States in freestyle wrestling at the 2012 Olympics this summer. Varner, a two-time NCAA champion and four-time NCAA finalist, was also the only former Cyclone who did not train in Ames for the 2012 Olympic Team Trials last weekend. He instead opted to train with Cael Sanderson, who coached the Cyclones from 2007-09, as part of the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club in State College, Pa. “When it comes down to it, you
have to go to the place where you think you can get the best training,” said David Zabriskie, who was Varner’s teammate as part of the 2005 recruiting class that spurred the Cyclones to four straight top-five finishes at nationals. Zabriskie — along with Trent Paulson, Travis Paulson and Jon Reader — trained for the trials in Ames under current ISU coach Kevin Jackson as part of the Cyclone Wrestling Club upon graduating from Iowa State. “It’s almost like we have an unfair advantage because he’s been an Olympic and two-time world champion,” Trent said of Jackson last week. “He’s already worked with several gold medalists and developed them, so he already has all the knowledge.” Jackson, who won a gold medal at the 1992 Olympic games in
Barcelona, Spain, served as the U.S. Olympic freestyle coach from 200108 before taking the job at Iowa State. “He’s a mastermind,” Reader said of Jackson. “He’s been there, he’s been in every situation we face and he knows what to expect, and it’s just [up] to us to listen to him and follow the plan.” The elder of the four wrestlers — Trent and Travis — began training non-stop after the 2008 Olympic Team Trials in Las Vegas. Both were three-time AllAmericans at Iowa State, with Trent winning the 157-pound NCAA title in 2007. Training with each other has propelled the Paulson twins to the level of competition they are at now. “We’ve been competitive our en-

Virginia Tech fires coach Seth Greenberg
Cyclones make big strides at weekend Mt. SAC Relays Stack takes step in right direction during current outdoor season
The Associated Press Seth Greenberg was fired as the men’s basketball coach at Virginia Tech on Monday, a decision athletic director Jim Weaver said he and basketball administrator Tom Gabbard arrived at last week as they assessed the state of the program. The discussion came after a second assistant coach in two weeks, and sixth in four years, announced that he was leaving Greenberg’s staff, this time to take an assistant’s job at ACC rival Clemson. Associate head coach James Johnson, a five-year member of Greenberg’s staff, was offered a salary matching the one he was to receive at Clemson, but still declined. “Coach Johnson came to my office Friday morning and told me that it had nothing to do with money,” Weaver said. Last week, Rob Ehsan left to become an assistant at AlabamaBirmingham, and was accompanied by director of basketball operations Jeff Wulbrun, who got an assistant’s position at UAB, leaving only John Richardson and Greenberg on the Tech staff.

With a time of 15:58.71, this was not Stack’s fastest 5K time. However, Stack said this is only the beginning of what she wants to accomplish in the outdoor season. “Overall, it was a good start,” Stack said. “I had to approach the race a little differently than I probably would have if things hadn’t gone wrong. I felt competitive again, I moved really well and engaged in the race a lot more than I had at nationals.” Coach Corey Ihmels said he thought it was a good start for Stack as well. Her injury put her a little behind in competition this spring, but Ihmels said she is well on her way to accomplishing her goals of an Olympic qualifying time. “It wasn’t so much the time or the end result we were wor-
Loy wins Mt. SAC, prepares to take on Big 12 By Dylan.Montz @iowastatedaily.com After a long weekend of travel to and around California, senior Rico Loy said he felt “surprisingly well” after training at practice Monday. “We raced on Friday, and now [three days later] I’ve had a bit of time to recover,” Loy said. “A 1,500-[meter run] is different than a 5K. It goes a
A look back on 2011-12 ISU sports With another school year all but in the books, the time has come for some reflection on the year that was. In this case, 2011-12 was no ordinary year for ISU sports. Across the board, it was one of the most successful years for Cyclone sports, perhaps ever. Volleyball reached the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament. Football saw two major upsets — more on that in a moment — and its second bowl berth in three years. The women’s cross country team won the Big 12 title. Betsy Saina was a national champion in the women’s indoor 5K. Both men’s and women’s basketball reached the NCAA Tournament — the men for the first time since 2005, and the women for the sixth straight season, after starting Big 12 play 0-5. Royce White garnered national attention for his play against defending national champions Connecticut and eventual national champions Kentucky, then vaulted himself into NBA Draft discussion by turning pro. Former Cyclone Jake Varner qualified for the 2012 Olympics, joining the U.S. freestyle wrestling team after qualifying Saturday at the Olympic trials in Iowa City. For ISU fans, this was one hell of a year to be a Cyclone. But the biggest story of all this season? It has to be the football team’s upset of No. 2 Oklahoma State on Nov. 18. Think about all of the things we listed above. Volleyball has had NCAA Tournament teams for several years, and while White and the ISU men were a big story — especially with a win against Kansas on the books this year — it wasn’t a huge surprise for them to have some success. But who saw a win against one of the best teams in the nation coming? No one with an objective opinion of ISU football. All four members of this board were at the game that evening, and we all recalled watching in sheer disbelief. It didn’t seem real. The stage it was on plays a huge factor as well. As Jeff Woody said it then: “Senior night, Friday night, ESPN, only show in town, never beat a top-five team in Iowa State’s history,” Woody said. “All those factors combined together just combines them [into] the perfect storm of finding a way to win and prove that we are a good team once again.” The win was the biggest upset in ISU history, bar none. It had viewers across the country rooting for the underdog Cyclones to ruin what would have been a perfect season for the Cowboys. At no other point this season — which, as we pointed out, was full of achievements for ISU athletics — was a Cyclone sport on the national stage like that. There’s debate on the greatest athletes at Iowa State, but there’s no debate this was the greatest upset in program history. Years from now, ISU fans will look back on that moment as a cornerstone of the program and of ISU sports. The “signature upsets” that have become a regularity under coach Paul Rhoads got its crown jewel that Friday night in November.

ISU drops 4-0 match to Baylor Cyclones looking ahead to conference tournament By Michael.Schmitt @iowastatedaily.com
File photo: Huiling Wu/Iowa State Daily Junior Dani Stack has overcome injuries and illnesses to compete in last weekend’s Mt. SAC meet. Her long-term goal is achieving an Olympic qualifying time.
After seeing her result from Mt. SAC, Stack said her performance, in her mind, is still up in the air. Stack has not had a lot of performances to gauge herself on in order to properly estimate how she will perform at Stanford this weekend. Stack said the basics are what she is worried about getting done this weekend. “I don’t really know where I stand,” Stack said. “I would like to be competitive; I really want to hit the standard. I know it’s not crucial that I hit [the Olympic standard] this weekend, but if I could get it out of the way, I would prefer to do that.” Having the first outdoor race out of the season out of the way, Stack said it will help in her preparation for the rest of the meets. Stack said the comfort she felt during her race at Mt. SAC should transfer over to the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford this weekend. With the Drake Relays this weekend, 90 percent of the team will head to Des Moines to compete with some of the biggest stars in track and field. For Stack and teammates Betsy Saina and Meaghan Nelson, the three athletes will compete in California instead of Des Moines to compete for Olympic qualifying times.
>>STACK.p10 ried about,” Ihmels said. “It was how she looked getting to that end result. From here on forward, she’s going to be getting better.” Ihmels said it was a positive sign to see Stack moving in the right direction. Ihmels said Stack looked better than she has in a while, and it was good to see her back. Assistant coach Travis Hartke said Stack’s performance was a step in the right direction toward her recovery, and her workouts during practice showed what they have been doing in her event at Mt. SAC. “Obviously she had a rough go in the indoors, but we’ve seen her have really positive workouts and she’s been on the right track,” Hartke said. Stack will be competing in her second outdoor event, the women’s 10,000-meter run, on Saturday at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif. The 10K will truly test Stack mentally as well as physically. “We haven’t really talked about how we’re going to attack it this weekend, but she’s ready to run close to where she ran last year,” Ihmels said. “We’re just going to take it as it comes, but I really think she’s ready to go.”
The ISU tennis team was defeated by No. 13 Baylor on Monday evening 4-0. The coaches of both teams decided to end the match after Baylor clinched the win. In doubles play the Lady Bears (22-6, 7-2 Big 12) won two of the three matches, with the ISU team of Marie-Christine Chartier Macedo and Simona Cacciuttolo losing their match 8-3 and the team of Tessa Lang and Maria Fernanda Macedo losing their match 8-1. But on a positive note for the Cyclones (4-18, 1-8), the doubles team of Jenna Langhorst and Ksenia Pronina won their match 8-7. Playing well under pressure is something the coaches have been emphasizing and Langhorst and Pronina did just that. Things didn’t go so well for Iowa State in singles, as the team didn’t win any sets. In the No. 1 singles spot Macedo had been hot as of late, winning two consecutive conference matches coming in to the meet against Baylor, unfortunately it didn’t last. Macedo was defeated by No. 24 Nina Secerbegovic of Baylor, 6-1, 6-2. Baylor also dominated in the No. 2 spot, as No. 12 Diana Nakic defeated Pronina 6-1, 6-1. Leading up to the match, Cattiuttolo had won four-straight conference meets. But she was defeated by No. 47 Sona Novakova 6-2 in the first set and didn’t finish the second. ISU freshman Meghan Cassens also suffered defeat at the No. 4 spot for the Cyclones against Ema Burgic, 6-0, 6-2. To round out the match for the Cyclones Langhorst was defeated 6-2 in the first set and didn’t finish the second and
>>LOY.p10 two heats raced, he would have a shot at running a good time and placing well. Loy led the entire last lap of the race and said no one really challenged him for the lead when he decided to go for it. “Someone went with me until 200-[meters] to go, but he [dropped off] and then I was by myself,” Loy said. ISU coach Corey Ihmels said that Loy really ran a smart race and with his level of fitness, he would do very well. “I told him before [the race], ‘Take it with 600-[meters] to go if you feel good’ and he did and won going away” Ihmels said. “He looked really good and came back the next day and ran about the same time. He looked pretty good, and if he would have
and feet-to-back-type moves,” Trent said. “In college, you throw someone feet-to-back [and] they land on their stomach, it’s only two points. You do it in freestyle, it’s Zabriskie either three or five points. So there’s a little bit more incentive to [wrestle aggressively].” Reader, who wrestled at 185 pounds in freestyle competition after wrestling three years at 165 pounds and 174 for one in college, said he prefers freestyle to folkstyle, having begun his career in it. “You can lock your hands; you can push out — it’s more of a chess match, really,” Reader said. “There’s different strategy for both styles, but you’ve got to go out and wrestle the way you wrestle.”
>>WRESTLING.p10 tire lives,” Travis said. “That’s, I think, one of the biggest reasons we’ve had success is we hold each other accountable when we push each other to our limits. “I don’t take anything but his best. If he’s slacking, I’ll call him out and he does the same for me.” Trent and Travis both lost in the championship rounds of the 163- and 185-pound championships last weekend after Travis opted to compete a weight above so they would not face each other en route to a possible Olympic berth. Trent said the transition from folkstyle to freestyle wrestling was tough at first but has gotten easier the longer he has been out of college. “It’s more explosive; it’s more throws
been fresh, he could have come back and run a 3:40 or 3:41. But that wasn’t our objective. Our objective was to come in and run two quality performances.” Loy said that with the nice weather conditions and California and his level of fitness, he knew he could run to a personal record that day. Loy accomplished that goal by two seconds. “In the race, I thought, ‘Yeah, I can run really fast [today],’” Loy said. “I felt just great all the way. I wish I would have been in a faster heat, but I’m super happy about [the way I ran].” Ihmels said that Loy is probably in as good of shape as he has ever been and that training will not be much different for him throughout the rest of the season. “We’re not doing anything crazy from here on
For Zabriskie, the 2010 NCAA champion at heavyweight, going from heavyweight in domination-laden folkstyle to 211.5 pounds in explosive freestyle is an adjustment. “It’s a little bit more active,” Zabriskie said. “At heavyweight, I usually set the pace; here, I’m just kind of in the mix with everyone else.” Between staying in Ames and training with his old teammate and coach closer to his hometown of Branchville, N.J., Zabriskie’s choice of the former was an easy one to make. “Ames has been good to me,” Zabriskie said. “The Cyclone Wrestling Club has been there to support me through college and now, so it was just something that I wasn’t really ready to leave and go anyplace else for.”
File photo: Grace Steenhagen/Iowa State Daily Marie-Christine Chartier gets ready for the serve from the Kansas State player against the Wildcats on April 13. Chartier and Simona Cacciuttolo were partners for the match in doubles play and went on to win with a final of 8-5. The event took place indoors at the Ames Racquet and Fitness due to weather conditions.
Chartier lost the first set 6-2 and didn’t finish the second. Iowa State will stay in Texas this week to prepare for the Big 12 Conference Tournament. The tournament will be held in College Station, Texas and runs from Thursday April 26 through Sunday April 29. The Cyclones will most likely play Missouri, with Iowa State being the 9 seed and the Tigers the 8. Missouri beat Iowa State earlier this season 6-1. The match will be at 10 a.m. on Thursday. out,” Ihmels said. “The work is done and nothing we do now is going to make us much more fit or better; it’s just a matter of fine-tuning.” Ihmels also said that Loy’s victory at Mt. SAC and his race the next day at the Bryan Clay Invitational is just another step along the way towards the end of the season, especially the Big 12 Conference meet. Ihmels added that the conference
race and Mt. SAC could look similar, competition-wise, for the 1,500-meter run. “I think he’s going to have to run [3:43] or faster to win the conference,” Ihmels said. “Depending on what we do, the 5,000, 1,500 or both, he’s just going to have to keep doing what he’s doing and keep getting better. He’ll have a few more opportunities this weekend [at the Drake Relays].”
