The University of Iowa Field House was a sea of black and gold as students welcomed President Barack Obama to speak on affordability and access to higher education. Obama arrived Wednesday to the cheers of 5,500 students, faculty, staff and Iowa community members, said Stephen Pradarelli, director of the University of Iowa’s News Services. Students started by screaming their “love” for the 44th president who quickly replied, “And I love you back!” The president traveled to

Iowa State gears up for Drake Relays America’s Athletic Classic offers runners 1st chance at outdoor Iowa competition
Bataille to lecture on leadership
By Dylan.Montz @iowastatedaily.com
By Frances Myers Daily staff writer The Women’s Leadership lecture series will feature Gretchen M. Bataille in “Women and Leadership: Career Success and Satisfaction” on Wednesday. Bataille is the senior vice president for programs and services at the American Council on Education in Washington, D.C. She has served as the president of the University of North Texas for four years. Before that, she was the chief academic officer of the 16-campus University of North Carolina system. Other administrative positions she has occupied include associate dean for academic personnel at Arizona State University’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and chairwoman of the university’s department of English. She also has served as provost of the College of Letters and Science at the University of California at Santa Barbara as well as provost and academic vice president at Washington State University. Bataille earned her Master of Arts in English and Bachelor of Science in English and French at California Polytechnic State University. She has also served on Iowa State’s English faculty. The free lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union.
The 103rd Drake Relays in Des Moines will provide the ISU track-and-field team with an opportunity to perform in front of fans close to home for the first time in the 2012 outdoor season. “It’s unlike any other track meet we’re at throughout the year,” said ISU coach Corey Ihmels. “If an Iowa State man or woman gets the baton and goes to the lead, you’re going to hear it.

It’s the same for Iowa, [Northern Iowa] and Drake, as it should be.” For junior Daniel Gruber, this weekend will be the first time he will get to compete in and experience the Drake Relays. “I’ve only seen [Drake Stadium] on Flotrack[.org] with some videos and photos, but that’s about it,” Gruber said. “It looks awesome. I’ve heard that it is a big event in Des Moines. I think that it will be quite fun there.”
By Stephen.Koenigsfeld @iowastatedaily.com Almost anyone who lives in Iowa knows the Drake Relays is one of the most storied sporting events in the country. For those athletes on the ISU women’s track-and-field team who are from Iowa, they will get to live the Iowan track athlete’s dream when they compete at the Drake Relays this weekend. Redshirt freshman Maddy Becker will not get the chance to
compete at Drake this weekend. However, the Cedar Rapids native said she has competed in the Drake Relays before and it was an experience worth remembering. “I competed there my junior and senior year [of high school],” Becker said. “It was really fun because they put all of the classes together.” Putting the classes together meant Becker was able to run with now-fellow teammates Morgan Casey and Katy Moen.

ISU policies set in place to prevent discrimination Editor’s note: As part of an ongoing series about identity and racism, the Daily delves into Iowa State’s discrimination policy and equal opportunity statement.
Iowa natives keep perspective despite living dream of racing on Drake’s blue oval
By Rachel.Sinn @iowastatedaily.com “Respect is the foundation for interchange of ideas, for learning and for working toward common goals.”
This is the first sentence of Iowa State’s discrimination policy, which is implemented to ensure everyone is treated with the respect and fairness that they deserve. Eric Abbott, professor of journalism and communication and a member of the hiring committee for two new professors at the Greenlee School this spring, referenced the university’s equal opportunity statement posted on all applications as
true to its word. The statement is as follows: “Iowa State University is an Affirmative Action employer and will take action to ensure that employment practices are free of discrimination. Iowa State University is committed to achieving excellence through a diverse workforce. Iowa State University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, religion, national origin, sexual orien-
tation, gender identity, genetic information, sex, marital status, disability or status as a U.S. Veteran.” Abbott said people who apply online typically see this statement first. “People who apply at Iowa State now apply online, so they see [the statement] right away,” Abbott said. “If they are from a protected class, the university invites them to indicate

Waffle wrap idea among showcase pitches 9th annual event encourages students to think outside box By Liz.Zabel @iowastatedaily.com The College of Human Sciences will host its annual Entrepreneurship Showcase from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday. Now in its ninth year, people from outside of the apparel, events and hospitality management department in the college are being allowed to participate for the first time. AESHM 474-574 is the foundation course in entrepreneurship in the College of Human Sciences. Ann Thye, adviser in the department, said she encourages all of her students to take the course. “Entrepreneurial thinking is a valuable life skill set — learning to think outside the box,” Thye said. Linda Niehm, professor of the class, said the course originally started out as a speaker series about entrepreneurship, but she wanted students to have the opportunity to learn the process of how to launch a business and become more engaged in the process. This is where the idea of the showcase was born. As the capstone project for AESHM, students are expected to either develop a business plan for a new venture or consult with existing businesses to “make them over.” “Students say time after time, ‘This really took me beyond doing a paper for class,’” Niehm said. “[Students] really have to think about and come up with a good idea that really takes a different level of thinking than just doing a report. Students have to be really innovative and come up with a distinct project that has competitive advantages in the marketplace.” This year, Niehm said she wanted to open up the showcase to people outside the course in the College of Human Sciences so that they could become engaged in entrepreneurship in some way. “We’re hoping to generate excitement this year and greater involvement,” Niehm said. “Maybe students will want to take the class and be more involved in entrepreneurship, or at

the very minimum they will get some feedback on the viability of their idea from professionals. Maybe it will encourage them to move forward in perhaps pursuing an entrepreneurship venture of their own.” Students will have the opportunity to pitch their business idea to a panel of judges in 90 seconds. This panel of judges consists of business consultants, extension specialists, bankers, business owners, faculty and graduate students — “people that have the necessary knowledge to evaluate these projects,” Niehm said. Niehm said there are three different outcomes from the pitch. First, the judges will give them feedback to move their business plan forward. Second, students will leave the class with something that is a tangible business plan: something that has value, and with tweaking and modifying can be used to actually start something when they graduate.
Three, interacting with professionals and selling their idea takes them to a higher understanding about their project. They have to internalize the concept and really be able to sell it. One of the projects Niehm said she was excited to see was Logan Trussell’s waffle wraps. Trussell, senior in culinary science, will be pitching his business idea of a waffle wrap restaurant. Trussell said his waffle wraps would be great for drunken breakfast eating, so ideally he’d like his restaurant to be located in an area such as Campustown. The restaurant would be similar to that of Pita Pit, and students would go in and pick different ingredients to put on their waffles, and then the waffle is wrapped for on-the-go eating. Beginning with a waffle as bread, customers select various syrups and standard breakfast toppings or fruit fillings to go inside, as well as savory options that people wouldn’t typically

think of, such as chicken. Trussell said he hopes to make some money and work on developing the business plan and work on the recipe. He says he wants to someday open a food truck because food trucks are not only gaining popularity, but are also able to move to where business is best. “I’ll follow through with it ... keep a lookout,” Trussell said. “If you like waffles, you’ll definitely like my waffles.” The showcase is free and open to the public. At 6 p.m., visitors can view the exhibits, listen in on judging sessions and interact with student’s business ideas. Following the judging, the award ceremony will be at 8 p.m. in the LeBaron auditorium. “I think the opportunity to see the innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of our students is just amazing,” Niehm said. “They surprise me year after year.”
that and if they indicate it, then our human resource department keeps track of the fact that someone from a protected group has applied.” Abbott explained that although applicants do not have to say if they are of a protected class, the university offers that as an option so they can monitor the applicant’s specific hiring process closer to ensure no discrimination is going to take place. Jessica Stolee, program coordinator for the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office, evaluates complaints issued and admits there has been a discrimination complaint filed within the last year, but she was not specific on what type of discrimination took place. “Our office provides antidiscrimination and anti-harassment training to new and current employees [of both faculty and staff] to prevent discrimination and harassment,” Stolee said. “During the training, we also discuss what resources are available if they have a concern of discrimination and/or harassment.” The office undergoes a series of steps when a report is filed. “When I first receive a complaint, my goal is to try to understand what has happened. I try to ask questions to understand in detail what the person has experienced,” Stolee said. When it comes to filing a discrimination situation, Stolee agreed it can be tough to investigate when only two people are involved, but she encouraged anyone to report any type of situation. “Sometimes the complaints only have two sides of the story with no witnesses and those are more difficult to determine if something happened,” Stolee said. “However, there are other factors that are considered during an investigation. “In any case, we try to find a resolution that stops the unwanted behavior and prevents it from occurring again.”

Iowa, a state that helped propel him to win the 2008 election, to discuss students’ “investment” in higher education, one he felt is being threatened by climbing tuition rates and fees. “I am only here today and Michelle is only where she is today because scholarships and student loans gave us a shot at a great education,” Obama said. “That’s how we succeeded. “Since most of you were born, tuition and fees in America’s colleges have more than doubled and that forces students to take out more loans and rack up more debt.” Obama explained that the average debt for American college students when they graduate is $25,000. The University of Iowa’s graduating class of 2011 left with an average debt of $25,446. Iowa State’s graduating class of 2011 had an average debt of $29,324, said Roberta Johnson, director of the ISU Office of Student Financial Aid, lower than the previous four years. In 2006, ISU students left with an average debt of $30,619. “We’ve got to make college more affordable for more young people. We can’t put the middle class at a disadvantage ... we can’t price the middle class out of a college education,” Obama said. The president explained that since taking office, he has changed the student loan system so it did not go through banks, put a cap on student loans so graduating students only have to pay 10 percent of their monthly income on loans, has created a Consumer Finance Protection Bureau to offer students more information and is encouraging colleges and universities to keep tuition low or they will not receive federal aid. “State legislatures also have to do their part by making higher education a higher priority in budgets,” Obama said. He said more than 40 states cut higher education spending in the last year. The role of Congress in aiding in American college students’ financial issues was another major topic. On July 1, a cut on interest rates for student loans will expire, adding an additional $1,000 dollars to students’ debt. This cut, which lowered the interest rates for student loans by half, was enacted five years ago. Obama said Congress needs to act now to extend this cut on interest rates and explained that a bill was introduced in Congress for this purpose Tuesday night. “Congress needs to act right now to prevent interest rates on federal student loans from shooting up and shaking you down,” he said. Obama also wants Congress to extend a tuition tax credit that gives families a tax break when
they help their kids go to college, continue Pell Grants for lowincome students and double the number of work-study jobs in the next five years. “Helping more young people afford college should be at the forefront of America’s agenda and it shouldn’t be a Republican or Democrat issue. This is an American issue,” Obama said. Though Obama said 77 Republican members of Congress voted for the original bill to keep student loan interest rates from doubling, he laughed at several recent remarks by the opposing party. “One of these members of Congress ... who compared these student loans, I’m not kidding here, to a stage-three cancer of socialism,” Obama said while laughing. “I don’t know where to start. What do you mean? What are you talking about?” Obama also said the spokesperson for Speaker of the House John Boehner said this was a distraction from the issue of the economy. “This is the economy. This is about your job security. This is about your future. If you do well, the economy does well. You are the economy,” Obama explained, his voice growing with each sentence. “Making sure our next generation earns the best education possible is exactly American’s business.” Steffen Schmidt, ISU university professor of political science, said that Obama’s visit to Iowa, as well as Michelle Obama’s visit to Des Moines on Tuesday night, have to do with Iowa being a “battleground” state. Schmidt explained in an email that Iowa is “one of a halfdozen or so that could swing either to the Democrat or the Republican in November. So Iowa is on the Obama, and probably later the Romney, campaign schedule. It is just as important this year for November as it was during the Iowa caucuses in January.” Obama did not mention any campaign issues, but stuck strictly to the topic of college affordability. “You’re here because somebody made a commitment to you,” Obama said, as he began to come to the end of his 30-minute speech. “Somebody here had a parent or grandparent that said, ‘Maybe I can’t go to college, but someday my son can. Maybe I can’t start my own business, but someday I can picture my daughter starting her own business. Maybe I’m an immigrant, but I believe that this is the country, this is the place, that no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, you can make it if you try.’” A small group of around 15 protesters met outside of the Field House during the event.

Some of his ideas are out of this world, even. With his latest crack-pot idea, though, we’re starting to think he can, in fact, see the future. As if taking a page out of his own book (we’ll get to that in a minute), Cameron’s latest crazy-guy venture is the creation — along with Google billionaires Peter Diamandis and Eric Anderson — of Planetary Resources Inc., a startup with the seemingly fictional goal of mining asteroids for such typically Earth-bound resources as gold, platinum or water. Sound familiar? Let’s back up a little. You remember “Avatar”? Well, for those of you who didn’t spend nearly three hours on the fictional world of Pandora, it’s like “Dances With Wolves” (or “The Last Samurai” or countless other movies) but in space. Without spoiling too many plot points, the premise of the movie centers around the people of Earth trekking to Pandora for the mining of Unobtainium — our favorite fake mineral name of all time. People of Earth mining in space? It is one thing to take events of the past and put them to film. Cameron knows that well, having done it with “Titanic” and ... well, that’s really it. It’s another thing to extrapolate about the future from the possibilities of science fiction and dystopian visions like he did in “The Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” But, to take the events of film and put them into reality? Well, that’s another thing all together. Well played, Mr. Cameron. We enjoyed his trips to the Mariana Trench to the wreck of the R.M.S. Titanic. We will probably enjoy the news about his exploration of extraterrestrial worlds. The main thing is that Cameron’s plan is to use the universe to better our lives by thinking outside the box. Space exploration is a great thing in its own right; like any other area of research, it is the acquisition of knowledge. The only avalanche of inadequacy under which we could ever be buried is failing to want an adventure. That adventure may not be space exploration. It might not be broadbased reforms of questionable policy. It might not even come from the government. But it will exist, and it will come from American people. And it will come from their ambition to boldly go — maybe where no man has gone before, maybe not. Editorial Board

Flame of freedom burns on History of freedom runs with us still
oting isn’t enough. Thomas Paine said, “What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly.” Our citizenship certainly seems to be one of those things we esteem too lightly, and we take it for granted every day. Being an American isn’t a birthright though. Citizenship is a duty, and that duty requires effort: effort to learn, effort to educate, effort to discuss, effort to act. Lots and lots of effort, and the effort never, ever ends until the day you die. The flame of freedom has burned throughout the history of mankind, from the first day a person walked the earth and was bound by nothing but nature to the very moment you read these words. Humanity has seen some dark times; indeed, the flame has been reduced to nothing but a smoldering ember, from time to time, a single breath away from being blown out. Yet despite wars and oppression down through the ages, here we are. The ancient Greeks are usually credited for being the first people to add fuel to freedom’s flame, to stoke it ablaze. And burn brightly the flame did for a time 2,400 years ago, only to be allowed to die down once more by human calamities, where it smoked and smoldered all those years, waiting for the moment when fuel was added again and human action coaxed the flame back from the
By Barry.Snell @iowastatedaily.com ashes. Hundreds, thousands of years went by, and freedom was flirted with here and there, but always it was trampled out before it could catch and spread. Then, 237 years ago, men who were tired of being oppressed met their oppressors in a green, grassy field one foggy Massachusetts morning. Militia Capt. John Parker, a farmer whose monument was featured so prominently in my column yesterday, said “If [the British] mean to have a war, let it begin here!” He and only 76 other men, who at that moment became the first true Americans in history, stood scared as hell before 400 British infantrymen, saying to the world, “This far, and no farther, for our liberty starts today.” Imagine it. Can you feel the terror they must have felt? Can you understand the breadth and depth of the sacrifice those farmers, blacksmiths, leatherworkers, bar keeps, husbands, brothers and sons were willing to make — and did make — that day? Smell the gunpowder smoke, hear the roar of the muskets, the screams of the officers yelling orders to their men and the pleas for help from the wounded. You, American, have a history.
Take hold of it, and make it part of you. You own this heritage, and dear God, what a gift. But ask yourself: Do I deserve it? Have I earned it? What have I done for my country and for my fellow Americans today? The flame of freedom is never gone really, even in the darkest times. It burns within our hearts and can never be taken away by any means of tyranny. So long as people live, so shall the existential space of liberty, even should people forget about it as we seem to have. The Puritan pilgrims understood this and brought the flame here, where it burned until it was eventually passed down to America’s Founding Fathers for safe keeping a hundred years later. They fought a war, created peace and codified the ancient principles of freedom, laying them down in elegant words that endure still and hopefully forever shall ... so long as we do our duty as citizens. Those men, this nation’s founders, didn’t create freedom for America, for freedom always existed. Rather, they created America for freedom. They created America for you, within whom freedom lives. Like freedom, being an American is a state of mind much more than a geographical and political distinction. Being an American is a set of principles and ideals of attitudes and actions. In this column, I can tell you about your rights, as protected by the Bill of Rights, over and over again, and you can practice them as
part of your daily lives. But until you understand that freedom is a challenge and that greatness only comes from people who are personally invested in their citizenship, it’s all for naught. Thomas Paine also said, “When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.” Virtue. Duty. Sacrifice. These words I’ve used writing this column, and I’ve used others in past columns, such as honor, integrity, honesty, love, and courage. We do not inherit them from our forefathers; they must be cultivated anew within each of us. The ancient Greeks thought that a person had a natural state of being and that unless a person lived up to his nature by doing what came naturally, such as being political, he was not living a good and righteous life. If the principles listed above are, in part, what makes an American an American, and America was created for freedom, a natural element of our being, then what are we if we are not virtuous? What are we if we fail to do our duty as citizens? What are we if we fail at these principles? Can we even call ourselves Americans anymore? Forget about Republicans and Democrats. Want to be an American? Know your rights and know your duties, and do them. Be a good person and the rest will take care of itself.

Listen to your gut instinct or else T here’s a wonderful demotivational picture on despair.com with a rusty looking boat half sunk into the sea. The caption reads: “Mistakes — It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.” Somebody showed me that picture years ago after I had left Iowa State and began a fouryear struggle as a college dropout. But it also got me thinking about my life and where I had gone wrong. Actually, dropping out of college wasn’t where things fell off the tracks. That was simply a symptom of the problem. The real problem was that I had not listened to my gut instinct earlier, that I had pursued higher education simply for the money rather than following my passion. My gut told me this sometime late in my first year here at Iowa State. Many of you out there have just completed your first year at Iowa State. You might be a freshman just about to become a sophomore. You might even be a transfer student. Heck, you might have already spent a couple years here and are still wondering what to you with your life. In any case, now is the time to do a gut check and ask yourself: “Am I in the right place? Am I content with what I am doing? Am I following my passion?” I suggest you find someplace quiet to reflect on these questions. If you “feel” that the answer to these questions is “yes,” then congratulations! May you find prosperity in your endeavors. But if the answer is “no” and you ignore that feeling, then you might be on the verge of making a big mistake. I made that mistake. I knew after my first year at Iowa State that Journalism: Electronic
By SteliosVaslilis.Perdios @iowastatedaily.com Media Studies was not for me. My experiences did not live up to my expectations of the program. I will not recount those experiences here because they happened years ago and do not necessarily reflect the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication as it is today. I had my gut check and knew deep down that I did not belong at Iowa State, not just in journalism, and perhaps I needed to go elsewhere. Instead, I ignored my gut and switched to Business Management: Entrepreneurship. I wanted to make money to make up for lost time. People gave me grief for that. They also gave me grief because I had also joined Quixtar/ Amway. My adventure in Amway lasted for about six months. I remember in one mass meeting being told, “If you are not making money, then that means you are not right with God.” Wow. Yeah, I quit shortly after that. Some months after that I had quit Iowa State too. Being a college dropout was certainly an eye-opening experience to say the least. There is nothing quite like the “real world” and its school of hard knocks to make somebody mature fast. I think everybody, right after high school, should work for a year or two or join the military so they can really appreciate the opportunity of higher education. One night in the spring of 2007, I had another gut feeling, this time in the form of
intense pain, pain so great that I broke out into a sweat. My extremities went numb and my body felt cold. I even unlocked the door to my apartment so that anybody who would find my body would not have a difficult time doing so. Fortunately, in the morning I woke up feeling fine — and more appreciative of life. I knew then that I had to go back to Iowa State to pursue and hone my passion for writing. I later graduated with two degrees, one in history and the other in English. And on May 4, 2012, I will get my Master of Arts in history. Along the way I discovered a new passion, teaching. I’ve also been given opportunities for writing that I never thought would come my way, such as writing columns for the Daily, for example. The next step for me is teaching classes and writing books. It has been a long road, but I am finally here. So wherever you are in life, take a moment to do a gut check and then listen to your feelings. If you’re the more rational type, make a list of pros and cons of your situation and act accordingly. While life will always have its ups and downs, you don’t want to end up in a rut, shut off from your passion or passions. As I discovered, such misery can last for years and can be physically harmful (just ask anybody who endures long-term stress and stomach ulcers). Then you need to listen to your gut and do what your gut says. It might be difficult or intimidating at first (let’s face it, it is a big decision, and that’s an understatement), and there will be obstacles, but the alternative is to live an unfulfilled life, miserable. So follow your passion.

On live from online Locusic Live Ames to feature 7 local artists By Vincent Geerts Ames247 writer Locusic.com founder Jake Kerber wants to help local music, and local musicians are happy to return the favor. Locusic Live Ames will feature seven local artists for only a $ 5 cover charge this Saturday at DG’s Tap House. Between acts, Kerber will jump on stage to give away prizes donated by local businesses, whose ads on Locusic pay for its operating fees almost exclusively. Kerber hopes to promote his startup business, which he described as a “music streaming service focused on local music” akin to Pandora.com. Though the site only works in central Iowa at the moment, Locusic will expand to the Twin Cities in about a month. Eventually, he hopes to include the nation. Kerber first got the idea when he traveled the country post-graduation from Iowa State working various tech jobs with his mechanical engineering and computer science degree. In moving from city to city, he went to many local shows but was never sure what to expect. “I had no clue if I would enjoy that band or even knew who the bands were,” Kerber said. “[Locusic] solves the problem from both sides. It helps bands get exposure and helps everybody else find out about music in the area.” He said Locusic Live Ames was “another way to show our support for the local scene and highlight some of the musicians in the area, as well as introduce Locusic to the Ames community some more.” Ames band the Workshy and Iowa City’s TallGrass will headline the event. Originally it was scheduled for the two exclusively, and Locusic had

no part in it. Kerber was eager to host an event in Ames before the end of the school year, and he worked with DG’s to combine the events. Kerber A wide variety of acts will hit the stage throughout the evening. Hip-hop, blues, soul, heavy rock, Americana and more are represented in the set list. Brant Williams, guitarist and vocalist in the Workshy, said the addition of acts was “a good surprise.” “Anything that helps local music is a great thing,” Williams said. “We’re happy to have it happen.” He plans to upload the Workshy’s album to the service as soon as he fixes his computer. Kerber said Locusic has seen a

“steady growth” that he believes will continue. He has many ideas for improvement in the service, but he has made it available early for “proof of interest” in his business. Various artists in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area are uploading songs to Locusic now, and the site will open streaming for those
areas in a month. “I plan for it to be a lot more,” Kerber said. “It will help you find shows that are coming up from local bands, help you make a better connection between the fans and the artists and all kinds of stuff that needs to be out there.”

Wind Ensemble tells story of ‘Godzilla’ By Olivia Gard Ames247 writer “Godzilla Eats Las Vegas,” a band composition by Eric Whitacre, will put the ISU Wind Ensemble musicians on a new level of musical storytelling. As the audience shuffles through scripts outlining the classic tale of Godzilla, the ensemble will play music meant to represent the story line. “It’s a really cool piece to be in the audience for, and I think it will be fun to play,” said Rachel Petsche, senior in music and bass player in the Wind Ensemble. Petsche said the musicians become an even more integral part in the Godzilla story when they take on extra actions such as yelling and stomping. The audience will need to use their imaginations and scripts in order to help them fully understand the music, she added. “[‘Godzilla Eats Las Vegas’] features pretty much everybody in the group, and it is a lot of fun. It is just a riot,” said Michael Golemo, Wind Ensemble director. The concert will take another unusual turn when it reveals “Glass House Concerto,” a premiere piece by composer Andrew Ardizzoia that will feature Matthew Coley, lecturer of percussion at Iowa State, while Wind Ensemble will play in the background. Coley will play the concerto on “a variety of nontraditional percussion instruments,” said Golemo, including glass bottles and glass and stone xylophones.
Concert When: 7:30 p.m. Friday What: Wind Ensemble performance featuring Matthew Coley in “Glass House Concerto” Where: Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall Cost: $2 students, $4 adults
File photo: Iowa State Daily Michael Golemo, chairman of music and theater and director of the Wind Ensemble, conducts rehearsal on Aug. 27, 2009 with the ISU Wind Ensemble. On campus, the Wind Ensemble performs approximately six concerts every year, including this Friday’s “Glass House Concerto.”
“I have had a passionate interest for some time in utilizing glass as a percussion instrument, as well as assembling many sounds from one material, whether found or manufactured,” Coley wrote about the “Glass” concerto on his website. Coley also utilized glass instruments when he collaborated on the “CLEARLY” instal-
lation displayed in Brunnier Art Museum in December 2011. Even with all the unusual instrumentation, “Glass House Concerto” sounds surprisingly similar to other concertos, said Lee Plummer, senior in music and percussionist in the Wind Ensemble. Pieces like this one allow percussionists to
learn about a wider variety of instruments and techniques, Plummer said. Ardizzoia has planned to be present at ensemble rehearsals and at the Wind Ensemble’s performance Sunday. Ardizzoia will have the opportunity to give feedback to the group about “Glass House Concerto” before its premiere. “I think he might end up changing some things once he’s in there and hears what it sounds like coming from a real band,” Petsche said. She said he might clarify or alter parts because he will be hearing the music for the first time from the ensemble. “It’s always neat to have the composer there. It brings another level to the performance. The goal of any group, any performer, is to convey the intent of the composer, and when the composer is with you it’s great,” Golemo said.

cyclo spot ne light Q: How do you balance being in bands, school, and having a job?
Brian Stout By Vincent Geerts Ames247 writer Brian “Wildman” Stout, senior in music, plays trombone, tuba, coronet and more. “Wildman,” as he is called when playing with many local bands, will soon record his tracks for Mumford’s latest album.
Q: When and how did you become involved with Mumford’s?
on graduating to knighthood
A: I was first involved with Christopher the Conquered in May 2010. After seeing them play a show, I got involved. Within a month after that, because Nate also plays with CtC, Nate found out I play tuba and said, “Wow, man. Will you play tuba in my band?” I said, “Sure, why not?” I don’t remember if we had many practices, but one of my first shows was Fourth of Julawesome. I remember playing on a couple songs I’d never heard before, but I played to them anyway.
Q: What is recording an album like? Did you enjoy it? A: Yeah, it was really fun. For Triple Trinities, it was just the tuba and trombone on one or two songs. I was mostly by myself for the recording, over at Bryon Dudley’s place for the Spacement. We just had me there in a chair next to Bryon Dudley with a mic and my tuba, and it was pretty fun. We made sure I got everything right and everything sounded good, and it was pretty neat.
Know a student who would make an interesting profile? Let us know at ames247@ iowastatedaily.com
A: I don’t have a job right now. I need a job, but honestly my class schedule has kept me from getting a job. I applied a ton of places, but anyone who contacted me back couldn’t work with my schedule. I’m also involved with a ton of music stuff here. It’s more music stuff than classes that keep me busy. I sing in the Statesmen, play in the Wind Ensemble, the jazz band, and I have trombone quartet stuff, I have lessons of my own. I sing in the a capella group Shy of a Dozen, but there’s always extra rehearsal performances that take up all the time. There’s three bands I play in pretty regularly, but concerts have been a priority unless I have required concerts or something for school.
Q: What are you looking forward to? A: Being done with classes, really. I’m really excited to record the new Mumford’s album, one reason being I don’t really know what’s going on with it. This is what I know that I believe is all true. The whole album is like a piano ballad. Most of the songs which I’ve heard, Nate performed live, but they’ve been performed solo, Nate on vocals and piano. He is planning on having a full band for all or at least most of the songs I believe, so that’s what I’ll be recording. I don’t even know what it is, but we have a recording date set up for May.
Q: What’s your favorite part about playing in a band? A: Shows are really fun. I love playing shows and seeing all the fans, meeting all the new people. Seeing my friends there, meeting new friends. Getting to know everyone around Ames, around Des Moines and just Iowa. Hanging out and getting to know other bands, it’s really neat.

The Masterworks concert is an annual event that allows the choirs and orchestra at Iowa State to work together and collaborate. This year, “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff will be the featured piece of the performance. The composition will combine all of the men’s and women’s choirs, along with ISU Symphony Orchestra, in a composition of 25 different movements. “It’s one of the most widely performed or most popular large choral orchestral works,” said James Rodde, director of Iowa State Singers and Iowa Statesmen. The orchestra will play music with more piano and wind instrument involvement than usual. Because it is easy for them to play loudly, it is important for them to be mindful of balance with the singers, said Jacob Harrison, director of the orchestra. Rodde will be the director of the concert. Because Rodde is already in tune with the choirs and has his own styles of tempo and conducting patterns. “It’s kind of [the orchestra’s] job to adapt to what he’s
Masterworks When: 3 p.m. Sunday What: Masterworks concert featuring “Carmina Burana” Where: Stephens Auditorium Where: $5 students, $10 adults already planned,” said Rachel Petsche, senior in music and bassist in the orchestra. Being a musician in a performance such as Masterworks is a very “communal” experience, said Joseph Leon, junior in music and member of Iowa State Singers and Iowa Statesmen. Unlike some smaller choir environments, the Masterworks concert allows singers to feel part of an even bigger whole, Leon said. Themes vary throughout the movements in “Carmina Burana” and include ideas of spring, romance and passion. Although the work will be sung in Latin, Leon said it is still important for the audience to gain an understanding of feelings in the music.
“I think the spirit is there in how [‘Carmina Burana’] is sung and how it is performed,” Leon said. He said the choir will use volume and emphasis to communicate with the audience. The different movements are meant to fit together well in a cohesive style. Benjamin Friedrich, senior in advertising and member of Iowa Statesmen, said it takes more work in the choir to polish and prepare music for a large concert. “It’s interesting to learn the different styles in the context of this huge piece,” Friedrich said. “When you learn a style in the context of a bigger work, you get familiar with it.” Before “Carmina Burana,” Iowa State Singers will perform a brief preview concert. This will include “Dark Night of the Soul,” which will feature a string quartet with faculty members Jodi Goble, Jonathan Sturm and George Work. “I would recommend to anybody, if they want to hear a great concert, the Masterworks concert would be the one to go to,” Leon said. “That’s really what I think music is all about. Getting a group of people together with different skills and creating a beautiful final product.”

Professor hopes research motivates children By Rachel.Sinn @iowastatedaily.com “How often do you do something that you don’t like?” asked Spyridoula Vazou, assistant professor of kinesiology. Adults know doing things they do not enjoy is sometimes just a part of life, but during childhood this mindset is a much harder concept to understand. Exercise is an essential part of human health, but because many children in today’s society would rather be on a computer or playing an electronic game, it has become harder to produce the motivation that used to come naturally in former generations. “Kids are not that active, and we know there are both short-term and long-term
consequences of that lack of physical activity,” Vazou said. Vazou said many schools and parents are not realizing they need to provide activities that every child will enjoy. “Childhood obesity is a major issue,” Vazou said. “We are made to be active and kids have the inner motivation to be active, but as we grow up, we lose that for several reasons.” Vazou strongly believes that if society can find and produce activities and exercises that interest all children, the inner motivation will carry on throughout their lives. She is determined to find and produce activities that not only keep them healthy physically but also mentally. “This research study may promote the integration of physical activity with math

and other subjects. It’s an alternative to sedentary classes interrupted by short movement breaks,” said research assistant Maria Kohlhaas. As a senior in elementary education, Kohlhaas hopes students learn to enjoy and develop healthy habits that can be sustained throughout their lives. As a former lecturer of physical education at a university in Greece, Vazou realized that her students, who were to become teachers, needed more than physical education classes. Thus began her work to find more ways to include movement in the classroom. “[With exercise] you can have stronger memories and at the same time be more energized, motivated and concentrated,” Vazou said. “It can give you optimized learning.” During her research, Vazou has classrooms do activities and gathers the opinions of kids and teachers on what they like and what works for them. While Vazou continues her data collection process, she stays busy with her 3-year-old son at home. “We play with bikes. We go to the park. We run around, it is our game,” she said. “Even if I wanted to keep him less active, I wouldn’t be able to.” Although she doesn’t have to motivate her own child, Vazou hopes that the outcome of her research will provide a more positive experience for those who don’t enjoy much activity. “Our first priority is to give positive experiences to the kids and the experiences that are appropriate. That is what I believe is key to being successful,” Vazou said.

Forecasts threaten Drake Relays By Luke Meredith The Associated Press DES MOINES — Meet director Brian Brown spends 51 weeks each year working to make sure the Drake Relays go as smoothly as possible. The only thing Brown can’t control is the weather, and the forecast this year looks terrible. The 103rd Drake Relays, which begin in earnest Thursday, will likely be hampered by rain and temperatures in the low 50s on Friday and Saturday. The weather could force athletes hoping to compete at the London Olympics to sit out to avoid potential injuries. Brown is hopeful that a packed house and the aura associated with one of the nation’s top track and field meets will push those athletes to compete. “For those who, it might be their first time, they’ll think, ‘Wow. I can’t believe all these people are still here. I can’t believe all these people that competed before me competed at such a high level. I better get my act together and follow suit,’” he said. It’ll be a shame if the weather thins the fields for Saturday’s marquee events. As always, hurdler Lolo Jones will be the headliner in her hometown.
By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com The choice between helmet or headgear was tough for Kane Seeley. The Elite AllState linebacker and two-time state champion for Perry (Iowa) High School wrestled with the idea of competing collegiately in wrestling before deciding to accept a scholarship offer to play football at Iowa State. “It was a tough decision up until last spring,” Seeley said. “I just realized that I had more of a passion for football and I just would see myself more as a football player in college than a wrestler. I just enjoy football more.” O n National Signing Day, on Feb. 1, ISU football coach Paul Rhoads said “you can’t recruit enough wrestlers” like Seeley, who notched four falls, two technical falls and a major decision en route to his two state titles — one at 215 pounds as a junior and his second at 220 as a senior. “They’ve got great leverage, they’ve got great balance and they’ve got a mental toughness that I don’t know if it exists in any other sport,” Rhoads said. “They lift and they run and there’s just a strong mental toughness that goes along with that particular individual.” Collin Bevins of Creston, Iowa, also will be joining the ISU football program as a state champion in wrestling having pinned his way to the 2-A state title at heavyweight in February. For Bevins, who was pinned by Seeley in the 2-A 215-pound title match in 2011, the choice between wrestling and football was easy. “I have no interest in

wrestling in college,” Bevins said. “I don’t really like wrestling that much. I mean, I did it a lot to get better at football and getting mentally tougher and physically tougher.” Breeding toughness in wrestling is one of the attributes — among others — that ISU wrestling coach Kevin Jackson said can translate into success on the football field. For Bevins, who played defensive end at Creston High School, wrestling also helped with other aspects of football as well. “One thing that wrestling does, especially based on the positions, would be the handto-hand combat that wrestling makes you an expert at,” Jackson said. “I think that carries over well to the football field. The hand-to-hand stuff, the tackling — being able to take a guy down and how they train guys in the NFL is to shoot the double-
leg takedown on him in the open field.” Losing two recruits like Seeley and Bevins to football is never easy for wrestling programs, especially for Jackson, whose team concluded its worst-ever finish at the NCAA Championships in March with a 35th-place showing. “I’m going to have to go down and see [Rhoads] tomorrow and talk to him about letting those wrestlers that are state champions stay wrestlers,” Jackson joked in February. “But he’s doing a great job recruiting and you can’t blame him for putting another couple good athletes on his team.” Wrestling finds itself at a disadvantage when recruiting prospects like Seeley and Bevins because a Division I wrestling program only has 9.9 shared scholarships to offer compared to football’s 85
full-ride scholarships. This can simplify any prospect’s choice if they’re on the fence. “It’s very rare to see a full scholarship offered for wrestling, whereas football you can get a full scholarship more handily,” said Trevor Kittleson, the Perry wrestling coach who coached Seeley to his second state title last February. “I would say a lot of the bigger guys in wrestling that are proficient in football as well would choose football over wrestling most of the time.” Both Bevins and Seeley said they did not receive scholarship offers to wrestle collegiately. Had he been offered a scholarship for wrestling, Seeley said the full-ride scholarship for football would still be one of the deciding factors if he was torn between the two. “I wouldn’t have gotten
any full rides at all [for wrestling],” Seeley said. “People stay in debt for years paying [college] off, and being able to get a full ride is a big advantage for football.” Bevins said he would be vying to play defensive tackle — and gain 40 pounds to do so — upon joining the team, while Seeley said the coaches want him at either inside or outside linebacker depending on how much weight he gains as well. Since the future roommates will be trading in their singlets for cleats full time when they arrive on campus in June, those of the wrestling community may have some room to lament the departure of two of its more talented prospects. “With the more publicity going toward football than wrestling, it’s easier for kids to see the publicity of football and choosing that,” Kittleson said. “I do think it’s a little bit of a problem for wrestling as a whole sport, but it’s hard to blame a kid for doing what’s best for them as well.”

Kurt Busch to drive in Nationwide race in Iowa DES MOINES (AP) — NASCAR Sprint Cup regular Kurt Busch will run the Nationwide race at Iowa Speedway on May 20. Busch confirmed he’ll race in Iowa for the first time. He will be the first Sprint Cup champion to run on Iowa’s 0.875-mile oval. Danica Patrick, Sam Hornish Jr., Austin Dillon and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who won both Nationwide races at Iowa in 2011, are also slated for the race. The May event will be the first of four Nationwide and Camping World Trucks series races in the Hawkeye State this season. The track also will host an IndyCar race in June of this year.

Cyclones face Missouri rematch By Michael.Schmitt @iowastatedaily.com When the ISU tennis team faces off against Missouri on Thursday, it is planning on its match being a lot different than the first meeting between the two. This time, it will be in the Big 12 Championships and it’s win or go home. “We were all really close in our matches when we played them earlier; the score really didn’t actually say what happened. Once we have a point, we need to take it because it’s going to be really important since it’s first to four,” said ISU senior MarieChristine Chartier. “If you have a chance to break or get a game, you’ve got to do it when it’s there and just stay out there as long as you can.” The first time the Cyclones (4-19, 1-8 Big 12) and the Tigers (10-11, 2-7) competed, Missouri came away with a 6-1 victory. But as Chartier said, the score didn’t really give any idea to how close the match was. If Iowa State wants to come away with a victory this time, coach Armando Espinosa said the Cyclones don’t need to change much, just be more prepared to play. “The key is coming out, knowing that we have a chance to beat them, having to play them before and knowing that we could take them down,” Espinosa said. “It’s a good feeling to come onto the court in doubles and singles and know that we have a great shot, we just have to try not to change the mentality that if we go out there, even though we lost 6-1 in the regular season, that now it’s a different story.”
Chartier emphasized how important the mental aspect will be when it comes to competing. “Tennis-wise, we just need to play our game and be smart and calm and know that we can do it,” Chartier said. “We can. It’s two teams that are basically the same level, so it’s all about how we approach it mentally.” Another important aspect to the Cyclones’ chances of winning is for all the players to be playing their best. Espinosa said the team hasn’t had a meet this season in which that has happened. “We don’t need to do anything extraordinary, just play our game and we’ll beat them,” Espinosa said. “Everybody has played individually a good match every so often, but we haven’t had everybody playing well at the same time. If we go out there and we can do that, there’s no doubt in my mind that we will beat them.” This match against Missouri could possibly be the last for ISU seniors Chartier, Maria Fernanda Macedo, Tessa Lang and Chelsea Loprinzi. “It’s absolutely crazy that four years have gone by so fast, and I think the other seniors feel the same way, that this is maybe our last match coming up,” Lang said. However, that won’t deter them from treating it like it will be their last match. “We’re going into this tournament with a really positive attitude and everyone is really looking forward to winning one,” Lang said. “So hopefully it won’t be our last one. But if it is, it has been a great four years and we’re all looking forward to this last match.”

other than the Drake Relays, so that has given her curious hopes for her first competition there. Coach Corey Ihmels has been where his athletes are now. A past Drake Relays champion himself for Iowa State, Ihmels competed with the professional athletes of the track-and-field world. Ihmels said his athletes are prepared enough to handle that kind of spotlight and they will be able to keep themselves composed around the professionals. “We prepare [athletes] to be in situations like that, where they are at a meet like that and they’re around professionals,” Ihmels said. “But it doesn’t change what you’re doing. You still have to go through the motions of what you do every day.” Ihmels said being able to remain composed, going through pre-meet stretches and getting the job done on the track will help the athletes accomplish the goals they set. Ihmels said the Drake Relays was a highlight in his career, but there are more important meets. “The feeling of carrying that white flag around with an Iowa State uniform on, that’s pretty cool,” Ihmels said. “But you’ve got to keep it in perspective. It’s a great event, but it’s not the NCAAs or the Big 12s.” The Drake Relays kicked off Wednesday evening with pole vaulting at Jordan Creek Town Center and will conclude Saturday night with the men’s 4x400-meter relays. Catch Iowa native Olympian Lolo Jones competing in the women’s 100-meter hurdles at 3:07 p.m. Saturday.
>>BECKER.p1 had planned to come to Iowa State while still in high school, so the race at Drake was special for them. Becker said the Drake Relays is not like just any other meet. With some of the most elite colleges competing at America’s Athletic Classic, the competition will be a step up. “It’s a little more competitive and there’s always a big crowd there,” Becker said. “They play drums and it just gets really exciting.” On the tails side of the Drake Relays coin, there are athletes on the ISU track team from states other from Iowa. Even though the state may not host one of the largest collegiate and professional meets in the nation, word of the Drake Relays still travels. Minnetonka, Minn., native Emily Meese said she hadn’t heard a lot about the Drake Relays while she was in high school. Once she arrived in Iowa, however, that all changed. “I have been to it the last couple years,” Meese said. “Last year at this time, I was on crutches, and my freshman year I was a redshirt. But I have been to it and it’s pretty cool to go.” Since this is her first year competing at the event, Meese said she is excited to see what it brings to the table. “I think it’s really cool that people are wanting to celebrate track and what that is,” Meese said. “The coolest part about it is how much they support the high schools.” Meese said her roommate from her freshman year wouldn’t talk about anything

it is a cool experience to interact with so many different people, including the professional athletes. Gruber also said he is most excited for the Drake Relay to see how the distance medley relay team will be able to perform. “I think we have quite a strong [distance medley relay] with Rico [Loy] and Alex [Dillenbeck] and fast 400-meter run-
