Online: NROTC wears jeans to support rape, sexual assault victims By Natalie.Williams @iowastatedaily.com The Naval Reserve Officer’s Training Corps showed their support for Sexual Assault awareness month by wearing denim on the first-ever ISU Denim Day. Denim day originated after a woman was raped in Italy and her perpetrator was found not guilty because she was wearing jeans that their supreme court found would’ve been too tight to take off without her consent and help. People all over the world wear jeans on Sunday during Sexual Assault Awareness month, in protest of the ruling. Senior Joe Couillard and junior Knute Klinker both in NROTC wore head-to-toe denim yesterday to show their support. “If wearing denim gets [awareness] out, then I don’t see why not,” Klinker said. They found their outfits at a church basement garage sale and only paid $6. The outfits may have only cost $6, but their

meaning and effect on the ISU campus may be priceless. “We’re a part of the navy, but we are also a part of the [ISU] community and if there is anything we can do to support and prevent these things from happening, it’s something we should do,” said Couillard, one of the main planners of the Denim Day event.
Along with Denim Day, the NROTC also made posters promoting Sexual Assault Awareness that are around campus, said Charles Latour, assistant marine instructor. “It’s important because we need to make sure we build officers and that they understand the se-

The Government of Student Body passed a bill to fund nearly $20,000 for the rewriting of the student organization online database. This funded several “bells and whistles” to not only bring the current system up to date, but to also make overall improvements. An amendment made by Sen. Barry Snell lowered GSB contribution from $24,300 to $19,300. The original bill called for $24,400, but Director of the Memorial Union Richard Reynolds agreed to chip in
$5,000 from the Memorial Union Operations Budget. “This is not a request from the student activities center to fund the administration, this is to bring an aged system up to speed,” said Director of Student Activities George Micalone. “I would definitely urge a yes vote on this” Sen. Scott Broady said. Sen. Trevor Lund said he had spoken with his peers, and they did not view this was a necessary project. “I spoke to some people about this, a lot of the people were confused as to what the purpose was of rewriting this,” Lund said. “A lot of them thought it was fine the way it was, and they were able to use it for what they needed.” Sen. Gage Kensler agreed with

On the ISU Police homepage, two new tabs can be found. In response to the Boston Marathon bombing, ISU Police decided to update its homepage with sections on bomb emergencies
and suspicious packages to a more prominent position. “In light of the event, it was an extra precaution so that if somebody went directly to our page, they wouldn’t have to make multiple clicks, they could find it directly,” said Rob Bowers, associate director of public safety. The change happened April 15, the same day of the Boston Marathon tragedy. “Obviously when something like [the marathon bombings] is happening in
the United States, we are concerned, and we want to make sure that people have the best opportunity to see the information that they need to see,” Bowers said. “So we do make adjustments constantly in what we’re doing, and yes, that was an adjustment we made as a result of [the bombing].” The two tabs are now the first students see when they go to the homepage. “It was just added to the website, it hadn’t been
on there prior,” said Aaron Delashmutt, investigations captain for ISU Police. “We always had the information available. We had put it out years ago when we had a rash of incidents, but we’ve always had the information. We just decided to make it more available.” Bowers said that ISU Police is constantly re-evaluating and looking for ways to improve their procedures. “It’s been an ongoing process over the past couple
months,” Bowers said. “We were re-evaluating things eight to 10 months ago, before Boston... The bomb threat checklist has been consolidated, a little clearer, a little more concise.” ISU Police created their checklist by looking at the checklists put out by organizations such as Homeland Security, then picking and choosing the pieces that were applicable to ISU students.

Men’s golf: Cyclones end last place at Championship The ISU men’s golf team finished its season in a disappointing fashion, finishing last at the Big 12 Championships in Hutchinson, Kan. After a weather delay on the first day and the cancellation on Tuesday due to ice and cold weather, the three-day tournament was reduced to two. The Cyclones struggled mightily on their first day of competition, shooting the worst first-round score of 306. Duncan Croudis (85) and Collin Foster (82) had the highest first round scores individually in the field of 45 golfers. The team made up some ground in the second round, shooting 289, which was the second-best score of the second round, only behind Big 12 Champion Texas (281). However, the Big 12 Championship ended much like it started for Iowa State, finishing with a tournamenthigh round of 309. The score dropped the team from contention after being the only team to break 900 strokes in three rounds. Scott Fernandez led the team, tying for seventh place (7272-73=217). No other Cyclone finished in the top 30, with Sam Daley finishing tied for 31st (75-73-80=228). The meet was won by Texas (290-281-288=859), the defending national champion. Oklahoma State (285-292286=863) and Oklahoma (296293-280=869) finished out the top three. Individually, Texas’ Brandon Stone took the Big 12 individual title shooting rounds of 70, 67, and 73 to finish evenpar. Oklahoma State’s Talor Gooch finished three strokes behind, finishing his final day 4-over par. —Alex Gookin

Men’s team returns to capital for competition this weekend By Ryan.Berg @iowastatedaily.com After nearly two months of traveling across the country, the ISU men’s track team will finally get its chance to compete in the state of Iowa. The team will head to Des Moines to compete in the 104th Drake Relays that began on Tuesday with competition from the high school, collegiate and professional levels. “The Drake Relays will be just as competitive as the last weekend for us because we were up against a lot of the top teams across the country at Mt. Sac,” said coach Corey Ihmels. “Drake will be no different.” The meet will feature competition from in-state rivals as well as many other schools throughout the country. The blue track of Drake will be a familiar sight for many people on the team that have competed there during their time in high school. Ryan Sander, a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, competed on the historic blue track when he won the 2010 state title in the 110-meter hurdles in class 4A. “It is a little nerve-racking competing there and in front of all those people,” Sander said. “My high school will be there competing this weekend too so it will be fun to run in front of them.” For others on the team that did not get the chance to compete at the Drake Relays in high school, it has quickly become one of their favorite meets throughout the season. “I heard it is always a great meet with a great atmosphere, especially with all of the professionals there,” said senior Troy Walls. “My teammates told me I was missing out coming from Illinois.” The team has been competing in warmer climates such as California and Arizona. The weather, however, appears to be warmer heading into the weekend. “It will be nice for our group to not have to travel this weekend and the forecast looks great, too, so we should have some good weather this weekend,” Ihmels said. “It’s nice to be able to have a home meet, in a way, for us this weekend.”
Drake Relays event schedule On Thursday, the Iowa State 4x1,600-meter relay team will kick off the day for the Cyclones. Collegiate events start at 4 p.m. and wrap up at 9:30 p.m. with the men’s 5,000-meter run. Friday, collegiate events start at with the women’s 4x100meter relay prelims. The first collegiate field events begin at 10 a.m. Friday with the women’s pole vault finals. Saturday is the final day of competition for collegiate athletes. Running events begin at 8:20 a.m. Saturday, and the collegiate field events start at 9 a.m.

Relay teams prepare for shuttle hurdle, medleys By Isaac.Copley @iowastatedaily.com The ISU women’s track and field team will compete in what the Drake Relays is most known for: A meet dominated by relay races that pits several groups of ISU relay teams against some of the NCAA’s best. “We’re sending a few relay teams to Drake, and we feel they will compete well and have a good chance to win,” said coach Corey Ihmels. The relay events in which the Cyclones will compete include the 4x1,600-meter relay, 4x100-meter shuttle hurdle, 1,600-meter sprint medley and the distance medley. “I was lucky to win when I ran at the Drake Relays; it’s an exciting event for the kids and they are always ramped up for this week,” Ihmels said. “Most of this team is from Iowa, it’s important for them to compete at this meet, and compete at a high level.” Ese Okoro and Donnise Powell will compete in the 400-meter hurdles. This will be Okoro’s second 400-meter hurdle event of the outdoor season.
Drake Relays Professionals to compete at Drake Relays Several professional athletes throughout the world will be competing in the 104 annual Drake Relays and a total of 22 athletes that medaled in the 2012 London Olympic games. The Drake Relays will feature the largest prize purses in America with winners winning up to $50,000 in running events and $25,000 in field events.
Okoro finished second in the 400-meter hurdles at the Texas Relays earlier this season. “I think us sprinters work really hard together,” Okoro said. “We really push each other and training is real competitive.” Two weeks ago at the Jim Duncan Invitational in Des Moines, Okoro finished second in the 400-meter dash, one place ahead of teammate Kendra White. “We really work together to reach our goals and compete to the best of our ability,” Okoro said. The Drake Relays start on Thursday with collegiate competition wrapping up on Saturday afternoon.
Team brings experience into Big 12 tournament By Beau.Berkley @iowastatedaily.com Losing to a rival hurts, but getting a shot at redemption four days later at the conference tournament might ease the pain. The ISU tennis team opens the Big 12 tournament on Thursday against Kansas. Iowa State (8-14, 1-8 Big 12) heads into the tournament as the No. 9 seed and will play No. 8-seeded Jayhawks (10-9, 2-7) with the winner slated to take on No. 1 Baylor on Friday. The Cyclones’ draw comes four days after their 4-3 loss to the Jayhawks to end the Big 12 regular season. “We never like losing to Kansas,” said senior Simona Cacciuttolo. “Since we just played them and we’re so close with them, we definitely feel like we can win. We’ve also had a good couple of days to practice so we can get back out there and play.” Cacciuttolo is one of four current players with experience at the Big 12 tournament. Ksenia Pronina, Meghan Cassens and Jenna Langhorst have also competed in the past, but Langhorst is the only player on the team to have registered a victory at the tournament. Langhorst defeated Missouri’s Jamie Mera in three sets at last year’s tournament. “Having the experience definitely helps. Last year was super com-

petitive and we were right there,” Langhorst said. “The Big 12s are a lot different.” Meets at the Big 12 tournament are scored differently than regular season meets: All three doubles matches are played and all six singles matches are played, but that does not mean all matches will be finished. Instead of all the games counting as a point, the first to four points wins. In other words: The wins need to be quick, and the losses need to be prolonged. Coach Armando Espinosa understands having four players that have experience playing against the clock as well as an opponent is crucial. “It’s important that they take advantage of that [experience],” Espinosa said. “When you’re at the conference tournament and you’re
playing against time as much as you are the opponent, it’s important to know that you can not lose fast. You have to keep putting pressure on your opponent.” This means that the Cyclones will have to come out quick, something Espinosa has been working on throughout the season. “Getting out quick is huge. We’ve been coming out strong in doubles, but the problem is we’re not sustaining that speed,” Espinosa said. “We get ahead, but we’re not able to adjust to the other team. The doubles point is huge because the minute you get down a point, you’re stuck. There’s no time to waste.” The Big 12 tournament will be played Thursday to Sunday at Headington Family Tennis Center in Norman, Okla.
Since the inception of the Big 12 in 1996-97 season, Iowa State’s tennis program has never advanced past the first round of the Big 12 tournament. With the previous match against Kansas being decided by a close 4-3 margin, the Cyclones see this as a big opportunity for the program. “We’ve seen this program grow over the last four years, so if we can get this team to the next round it would be an accomplishment not only for us, but for the program,” said senior Jenna Langhorst. “It would be a big step.” Senior Simona Cacciuttolo understands that getting the team to the next round is a way for her to leave a legacy once her time as a Cyclone is through. “To feel like I’ve actually done something for this program in the last three years, that would be awesome,” Cacciuttolo said. “Knowing that I actually did something to help Iowa State change, move forward and be successful would be great.” Coach Armando Espinosa says that achieving milestones is something he’s been taking notice of. “For the past couple of years, it seems like we have always had a new milestone or record,” Espinosa said. “Last year we beat Kansas for the first time in 30 years, and I feel like this match could also be a milestone.” The 6-1 win against Kansas on April 15, 2012, is the largest margin of victory against a conference opponent in program history.

Divers swim to Sea Life adventure Scuba club dives with sharks in Minnesota Scuba Club By Ryan.Anderson @iowastatedaily.com The Scuba Club was given the chance to swim with sharks and other sea creatures at Mall of America’s Sea Life Aquarium. “We got a behind the scenes tour of the aquarium to see all the turtles and the other aquatic animals,” said Mark Humphreys, president of Scuba Club and sophomore in chemical engineering. Humphreys has been scuba certified for four years. The Scuba Club has been around at Iowa State for more than 20 years and currently has 50 members. According to the Scuba Club’s website, they are a student organization for both divers and nondivers to take part in scuba exercises, learn better skills, plan dives and attend social events. “We wanted to start off with a small dive, and I‘ve been through the aquarium before as a kid and remember thinking, I really want to go diving in there,” said AJ Tjaden, excursions director for the Scuba Club at Iowa State and a freshman in international business and marketing. Tjaden has been scuba diving since he was 12 years old. The club contacted the Mall of America in Minnesota to plan the scuba diving excursion in the Sea Life Adventure.

“They were really happy to work with us. It was entertainment for their aquarium,” Humphreys said. Scuba Club was allowed to dive into two tanks: a freshwater tank that was meant to resemble a lake as well as a salt water tank that had sharks in it. “Where can you say in the Midwest: I got to dive with sharks?” Tjaden said. They entered the freshwater tank first to show that they were comfortable being swarmed by fish. “Just in case a shark got past the barrier and touched you, you aren’t going to freak out and spook the sharks,” Humphreys explained. The Sea Life Aquarium houses over 10,000 sea creatures and hold over 14,000 gallons of water in one tank. The club was able to explore underwater for about an hour and thirty minutes total. “It was the only time I’ve ever felt like a celebrity; we were in the tanks with people waving at us from the in-

seems out of place. “It falls in line with ‘if you see something, say something.’ We’d much rather have a call, and have it turn out to be nothing than not have a call and have it turn out to be something,” Bowers said.
Most bomb threats are received by telephone. These incidents should be considered serious until proven otherwise. Act quickly, remain calm and use the following information for guidance. If a bomb threat is received by telephone: ■■ Remain calm. Keep the caller on the line for as long as possible. DO NOT HANG UP, even if the caller does. ■■ Listen carefully. Be polite and show interest. ■■ Try to keep the caller talking to learn more information. ■■ If possible, write a note to a colleague to call ISU Police (911 from a campus telephone or 515-294-4428 from a cellular device) or, as soon as the caller hangs up, immediately notify law enforcement authorities yourself.
■■ If your telephone has a display, copy the number and/or letters that appear in the window. ■■ Upon termination of the call, do not hang up, but from a different telephone, contact ISU Police to provide information and await further instructions. ■■ Complete the Bomb Threat Checklist. Try to document the exact words used. If a bomb threat is received by handwritten note: ■■ Call ISU Police: 911 or 515-294-4428 ■■ Handle the note as minimally as possible. If a bomb threat is received by email: ■■ Call ISU Police: 911 or 515-294-4428 ■■ Do not delete the message.

Lund’s remarks. “I agree with Sen. Lund, they don’t necessarily think this should be coming out of student fee money. They think it sounds like a good idea, when they hear how much it cost they are adamantly against it,” Kensler said. A bill calling for the same rewrite, plus a photo gallery option, was passed earlier this semester, and then vetoed by former GSB President Jared Knight. The senate failed at overturning the veto. Sen. Khayree Fitten reminded the new senate of all of this, and urged for a “yes” vote on this bill. “If we purely did what other senators did, there wouldn’t be a need for us to be here. Carry precedent with a little bit of weight, but don’t think you need to be bound by it,” Kensler said. Throughout the discussion there were also talks of cutting certain line items from the bill, specifically a $2,100 attendance tracking, card swipe system. “If you are going to do this, I recommend doing it all now and not going through all the line items,” said GSB President Spencer Hughes. “It will make it last longer so you won’t have to do it again. If GSB as a whole wants to do this, the best time to do it is now. As we get closer to regular allocations in March, there will be less money.” The rewrite of the database is a three to six month project,

Latour said that both the Navy and Marines looked for events around the world to promote prevention and awareness around the campus. The NROTC isn’t the only place on campus supporting Sexual Assault Awareness month. The Margaret Sloss house is also hosting events throughout the month to educate students. Last week, the annual Clothesline Project took place, which raised awareness about gender-based violence and gave survivors a chance to express their experiences, said Jenifer Roberts, graduate assistant at the Sloss House. At the Clothesline Project, participants may paint a shirt to write a message the advocates Sexual Assault Awareness. The shirts are usually displayed on campus just outside of the Sloss House, although this year the event was moved inside, Roberts said. “These Hands Don’t Hurt” is a philanthropy hosted by the Greek Fraternity Alpha Kappa Lambda that also takes place during the month of April.

the Sloss House, and all proceeds go to Access. Take Back the Night, an ISU tradition, will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Memorial Union to promote sexual assault awareness on the ISU campus. “The idea of it is to bring people together, unify together, to take a stand against genderbased violence. It’s to really empower people, to share their stories, and to recognize resources that are available in campus and the community,” Roberts said. “It’s important to talk about this issue all the time, but it’s nice that one month out of the year is dedicated to sexual assault awareness, because it is so prevalent, especially on college campuses.”

American ideals need clarification When officers of the Boston Police Department took custody of one of the young men suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon last week, he was injured and not in a condition good enough that he could be questioned. Citing public safety exceptions to the Miranda warning (“You have the right to remain silent,” etc.), however, officials planned to question him without reading him his rights. Noting that the public safety exemption has an expiration date, however, a group of senators (Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire; Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina; Peter King, R-New York; and John McCain, R-Arizona) suggested to the Obama Administration that the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, be treated as an enemy combatant. “The accused perpetrators of these acts were not common criminals attempting to profit from a criminal enterprise, but terrorists trying to injure, maim, and kill innocent Americans,” they said. The quick eagerness to treat an event that, based upon the knowledge available, is a simple crime — even though it is a horrible and, in the case of the United States, an uncommon crime — like an act of war made against the United States by another sovereign country, is disturbing. Similarly, discussion that revolves around whether Tsarnaev and his brother are American citizens is disturbing. Indeed, it is worth noting that the Constitution uses the word “citizen” in only two places (qualifications for office and judicial power); it never appears in the Bill of Rights, and the other amendments only mention citizenship in terms of judicial power, the 14th Amendment and voting. The Constitution and the amendments , then, are much less a statement of rights than they are of the limitations upon American government. In any case, the zeal with which some public figures advocated treating Tsarnaev as an enemy combatant engaged in a war suggests a prioritization of a criminal conviction over convicting the right criminal of the right crime. Our justice system is built on the assumption that people are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law until a jury of their peers determines that they are guilty. That justice system also runs on the belief that convictions are useless if they do not imprison the actual criminal. Anything short of a trial that follows the procedures established by centuries of precedent that would be accorded to a petty thief is a mere show-trial, empty of any meaning beyond a vengeful need so satisfy the requirement that “someone must pay.” Well, that “someone” is the debtor. It seems like everyone in politics treats America as an ideal (whether that be opportunity, a level playing field, a Christian nation, a capitalist nation, an empire of liberty, etcetera policy always receives judgment based on how “American” it is) rather than a geographic place. To be “American” is to carry in your heart a set of values that are epitomized in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. If America is in fact more an ideal than a country, it is important that government agents and politicians be consistent in how they treat others, particularly those accused of crime. High-profile cases such as these are always important “Who are we?” moments of decision. So, who are we?

Opportunity still unequal? Those less fortunate often left behind by slashed spending
few events have occurred in the past couple of weeks that have breathed oxygen into the inflamed discussion of macroeconomic policy in the “Land of Opportunity.” The passing of Margaret Thatcher has, rather ironically (and perhaps serendipitously), coincided with the disintegration of the veryeconomic policies the Iron Lady championed. First, a week ago, Olivier Blanchard, chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, warned conservative George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer of Great Britain, that his austerity measures could further deteriorate the already-weak forecasts for Britain’s economy (which has already suffered from slashed budgets). Second, the release of a new research paper by economists from the Political Economy Research Institute revealed numerous errors in one of the most widely cited and influential pro-austerity papers (Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, has referenced it before). The study, “Growth in a Time of Debt,” performed by Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff of Harvard, had supposedly found a “threshold” where growth became significantly stifled at a certain debt-to-GDP ratio. Reinhart and Rogoff subsequently published a bestselling book based on their study, “This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly,” profiting from their findings. Fortunately, Reinhart and Rogoff were proven wrong. The Peri Group found rather trivial errors such as miscalculations in the Microsoft Excel coding and data exclusions that severely altered the results. I am left wondering if the purchasers of the bestseller feel at all cheated. Yet the mendacious austerity pushers remain dominant among Republican lawmakers, and the mendacity persists only as long as the right denies the overwhelming evidence against their cause. Thus, the debate between Keynesian and Austrian economic policies has manifested as one of the greatest political battles of my generation.
By Michael.Glawe @iowastatedaily.com Our representatives are currently faced with a pivotal choice: Either we gut our government spending in order to reduce deficits and debt, or we can attempt to further stimulate the economy by boosting aggregate demand and reducing unemployment. The choice is quite simple, actually: Reduce unemployment by expanding the public sector job market and ensuingly reduce debt and deficits after we’ve neared full employment. As I’ve written on numerous occasions, debt and deficits are not the sources of our economic woes — lack of demand is (which can be derived from unemployment). There is overwhelming evidence suggesting that cutting spending during a recession is harmful to economic growth. In fact, as the International Monetary Fund reported last month, austerity measures may even increase debt over several years (a weaker economy shrinks revenues). Sadly, the fallacies continue because people have fallen victim to a mantra reinforced by pseudoevidence created by economists desiring to appear unique and “out there” (I’m looking at you, Reinhart and Rogoff). This is dangerous, capricious and, most of all, ignorant. So, how does the debate affect my generation? As long as the “freshwater economists” continue to exist, policymakers on the right will have excuses to gut our social programs. In turn, a weakening labor market will not allow my generation to enter the workforce with a job that suits our major and makes use of our skill set. Faced with student debt, we will be forced to take the job we “dream not of.” This recession will haunt us not for a couple of years, but likely for the rest of our lives. What’s even scarier is that, by slashing our spending, we leave behind those people who survive on programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Inequality of opportunity will worsen if we continue to roll back the social reform we’ve achieved during the past 70
years (How can people seriously believe in a private school voucher system and privatizing Social Security?). Perhaps we have indeed entered into what economist Paul Krugman described as the AliceThrough-The-Looking-Glass realm, where “virtue is vice, and prudence is folly.” As citizens of the United States, we take pride in the label “The Land of Opportunity.” But I ask, what opportunity? Children are born into an impoverished life, exacerbated by cuts to government spending they and their parents depend on and the possibility of escape remains a rarity. Among the developed countries, the United States remains
the “land of unequal opportunity” and there are those at the “top” who wish to keep it this way. In response, many of our representatives simply shrug their shoulders and say “That’s just capitalism at work,” without a thought. Perhaps public sector employees hold the same resentment that John Maynard Keynes once held for the British government he worked for. As the respected economist wrote in a letter to his lover Duncan Grant, “I work for a government I despise for ends I think criminal.”

College sports do not foster good feelings Competition just creates rivalries, not friendships
owa State recently participated in a basketball tournament involving teams from many colleges across the country. The goal of this tournament was to determine which basketball team is the best among NCAA colleges. Unfortunately, it was discovered that Iowa State was not the best. Eventually, our school’s team lost a game, which means they are now being called losers. Because this team represents our university, this means that our school also can be called a “losing school,” and as a student, that makes me feel sad. I am not alone in feeling bad about being a loser. Michael Paulsmeyer, a student I recently interviewed, also said that he does not like being a loser, and strongly prefers winning instead. However, he can be considered a loser because of our teams; this demonstrates just one of the negative results of college sports. I believe that college is meant to be a welcoming environment where everyone feels included. This is why there are a great number of diversity-based groups and scholarships here at Iowa State, to make sure certain groups of students are extra-included. Here, everyone should be considered equal. Not only does this fail to happen when winning teams are publicly recognized, it makes the losers feel bad. Natural talent and years of hard work should not be praised at the expense of others’ feelings. Not only do college sports create more losers than winners, they foster negative attitudes.

By Alexander.Maxwell @iowastatedaily.com Many people have developed hatred towards animals that represent rival schools. This is likely a major cause of people everywhere disliking our school mascot, the Cyclone. Most media coverage of cyclones outside of Iowa State sports is negative (with the notable exception of the classic urban anthem “Cyclone” by artists Baby Bash and T-Pain). Disturbingly, these harmful feelings do not always begin in college. It is common for athletes to start at a young age. By participating in sports, children learn to hate. There is no valid reason to encourage this kind of competition. We must ensure that children know that everyone is to be considered equal. By praising winners more than losers, such equality is lost. Outside of professional sports, competition is not useful. It creates rivalries, not friendships. Another student and self-proclaimed sports-expert David Jung expressed his experience in youth athletics by saying “I always wanted to beat the other team, even when I’d never met the people on it before.” Clearly, being part of a competitive system causes people to want to make their opponents feel inferior. This behavior is often encouraged by allowing winning teams to public vilify the losers; it is

not uncommon for the besting of another team to be described by using appalling words like “beat,” “slaughtered” or even “embarrassed.” College sports are not only mentally harmful. Many bar fights are caused by team rivalries, and residents of host cities often find fans of visiting fans quite annoying. Some studies have even shown a connection to sports games and fans’ alcohol use. An article published in the Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education stated that “it is no secret that tailgating with alcohol occurs on college campuses across the country on game day.” Disappointingly, it has somehow become acceptable to drink socially at college sports events. Yet, despite all of these issues, college sports continue to be supported. The rewards for winning in college sports vary, though none of them have actual real-world significance. One common practice is to award teams trophies, which are displayed like false idols. A better system is one that encourages equality, like giving out participation awards, which would also avoid labeling the losing teams “losers.” Do we really need college sports? Why do we need to compete athletically against other schools? I did not choose this school because it has a great basketball or football team, yet that appears to be just where it is headed. I do not like knowing my school is only trying to win, and every time I think about it, I cannot help but feel pity for those who lose to us.

Brandon Darner joined The Envy Corps as the lead guitar player in 2005. When he joined, Darner explained that the band’s overall commitment level changed with the shifting of new members. “Around that time … there was a different level of commitment into making the band work and happen,”

Darner said. “So we were trying different things that the band hadn’t really tried before then. So things were ... much stronger from that point on.” Changes include Luke Pettipoole’s songwriting, which correlated with the band’s new solidity. “With the band being as solid as it was, Luke [Pettipoole] felt a little more open to take risks with his songwriting,” Darner said. “And I was just excited to hear whatever he had. … It really just comes down to when a band really gets along and people respect each other, then everyone in the band is free to express themselves musically.” Fans of The Envy Corps may have noticed a difference in sound between the band’s 2008 album, “Dwell” and their 2011 album, “It Culls You.” From four-part vocal harmony to
more complex drumming from Scott Yoshimura, Darner described that there has been growth in the three years between records, and their music is more “focused.” “If you listen to any of the great music ever written, it’s more simple in its execution than it’s complicated. A simple song with a great melody can get your farther than something that’s convoluted and has too many parts.” Darner said. “When we made ‘Dwell,’ we laid down every single part we thought was great then tried to make it fit in a mix. … As we’ve grown as musicians, rather than record every single part we think is good, it’s more like, ‘Let’s write and record the exact part that gets the job done.’” As they continue to their next project, Darner said he is excited about
how much the band has grown and how they progress on every record. “When we make a new record, we’re happy to throw everything that we’ve accomplished away. We don’t sit there and say, ‘Well, this is what we’re really good at so we’re going to make sure we continue to do that,’” Darner said. “We’re excited and challenged by the idea of ‘What do we want to do and what would we like to try to do, and how do we achieve that?’” The Envy Corps recently recorded a video project in ARC Studios in Omaha, Neb., where they will play “It Culls You” in its entirety. Darner said it should be released soon and to be on the look out online. “We’re very proud of it and we’re really excited to have everyone see that,” Darner said.

By Levi.Castle @iowastatedaily.com Gamers may soon have to deal with an implementation that has already seen widespread controversy in only its early stages. As always-on Digital Rights Management and anti-piracy measures are introduced, the way consumers respond may ultimately shape the future of gaming. Piracy, the crime of illegally acquiring software by means other than purchasing it, is a threat for nearly everything that can be uploaded to the Internet or accessed on a computer. According to an article
on PC Gamer, video game “Crysis 2” was the mostpirated title of 2011 with nearly 4 million downloads. Last year, PC Mag reported that Adobe’s Photoshop editing software and Microsoft Office programs were among the most-seeded items on piracy sites. PC Mag said even programs that require a CD key to be fully activated could be exploited, due to pirates’ ability to supply cracked product keys that they generate themselves. Sometimes, all it takes is a Google search of “[insert product name here] key generator” to find an illegal copy of the software. Jacob Cramer, junior in software engineering at Iowa State, said he has been a gamer all his life. “I don’t think piracy is an issue. Yes, it’s illegal, but I don’t think that piracy has
a truly measurable effect on any developer. I have heard some developers say that piracy is free advertising rather than lost sales,” Cramer said. “That said, I generally think that if a person has the money to buy a product rather than pirate it, they should.” Alex Kratz, senior in computer engineering, said he sees both sides of the issue. “The only thing these extreme methods of [Digital Rights Management] ac-
complish is driving people away from their game. I don’t condone piracy but when it is easier to pirate the game to get around the [Digital Rights Management] than to actually pay and deal with the [Digital Rights
Management], something has gone wrong,” Kratz said. Just like other software companies, video game developers are aware of how much their products are being illegally acquired. In the last few years, the industry has seen some companies’ responses to the threat of piracy in a controversial move called “always-on Digital Rights Management.” This method has been used in popular games like Diablo 3 and Sim City, both of which had issues that made some gamers question if always-on was the right route of anti-piracy.

Music: ‘Save Rock and Roll’
Game: ‘Bloons Tower Defense 5’ mobile
By Maggie McGinity
By Levi Castle
“Save Rock and Roll” is Fall Out Boy’s first new music in three-and-a-half years, and its second No. 1 album. The album starts with a strings and percussion intro reminiscent of Fall Out Boy’s 2007 single “Thnks fr th Mmrs.” My main complaint about the album is the similarity between songs; they’re all classic Fall Out Boy style. The main way to tell a difference is listening to which metaphor Patrick Stump is singing. I’m unsure about some risks taken on this album. I never thought I’d hear a rap break in a Fall Out Boy song, and yet, I did, as well as spoken-word sections by Courtney Love. If you make it to the album’s end, though, you’ll hear its gem of a title track, featuring Sir Elton John.
“Bloons” is the sort of game that anyone who was bored in high school will remember. Maybe even middle school. “Bloons Tower Defense 5” for mobile is an extremely fun game for the price. It’s nice to have a different feel on an old classic and setting up balloon-popping monkeys feels somewhat fresh again. Granted, some just feels re-skinned. The addition of new monkeys (towers) is a welcome one, and, of course, some of the old favorites are back, such as the tack shooter. “Bloons” has been doing it right for years. Because of the price ($3) for a lot of what we’ve seen before, I’d wait for this to go on sale. When it does, and if you don’t have a tower defense mobile game yet, be sure to pick this one up.
Movie: ‘Oblivion’ By Gabriel Stoffa Tom Cruise returns to the screen in “Oblivion” to deal with the aftermath of aliens on Earth, kind of like Scientology. I’m just kidding. Everyone knows those aliens weren’t invading. Anyway, Cruise plays a repairman-soldier named Jack that has a partial memory wipe to prevent enemies from gleaning information should he be captured, which also conveniently keeps him from fully remembering other nagging “problems” with his mission. You have to love screenwriters that give characters amnesia so that the plot holes and flimsy explanations are tolerable. I would be remiss to say there weren’t the same sort of plot challenges in “Oblivion.” You get a sci-fi story with some twist to it, but nothing that hasn’t been done before. Overall, waiting for Netflix or Redbox would be a safe move.

Fun Facts It sure pays to be related to Tom Cruise. Just ask his cousin, William Mapother. A wannabe actor, Mapother turned his relationship with one of the world’s biggest movie stars into cameo acting roles in Born on the Fourth of July, Without Limits, Magnolia, Mission: Impossible 2, Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, and Minority Report. Having a famous cousin land those gigs normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but Cruise paid Bill’s bill out of his own pocket. Although most people associate sword swallowing with circus folk, the practice originated about 4,000 years ago in India, where deeply religious Hindus used the ceremony to demonstrate their faith. It is bad luck to whistle in a theatre. The superstition dates back to the time when off-duty sailors would run the fly system in theatres, and the sailors would whistle the cues to each other. Therefore, if you were to walk through a theatre carelessly whistling a tune, you might cause a scenic piece to fall on your head. Alaska is so big that you could fit 75 New Jerseys in it. Hackysack was invented in 1972 by John Stalberger as a game to help him rehabilitate his knee after a football injury. The part of Rudy on The Cosby Show was originally written for a boy, but Keshia Knight-Pulliam gave such a strong audition that she was cast in the role.
