Professor to lecture about magnetism Jigang Wang, assistant professor of physics and astronomy and associate scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy Ames Laboratory, will give a lecture on quantum femtosecond magnetism at 4:10 p.m. Monday in Room 5 of Physics Hall. Wang’s research tries to address what magnetic fields were like during the period shortly after the creation of the universe and seeks to understand how quickly current magnetic fields are able to switch properties. For his efforts, Wang has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award.

online By Lissandra.Villa @iowastatedaily.com In the No. 1 pork-producing state in the nation, Iowa State has chosen to host a BaconFest event. Since the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences approved the idea, the event has changed in several ways, from venue to size. “Since we’ve announced our idea and have gained approval and a lot of positive feedback, ... we’ve really expanded BaconFest substantially,” said Jake Swanson, president of Iowa State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council. The event, set for Oct. 19 is expected to draw large crowds. BaconFest General Co-chair Kelley Glanz said

the committee is marketing to the entire state of Iowa. BaconFest was officially recognized as a student organization on Thursday. It is comprised of nearly 70 students in seven different committees: logistics, sponsorship, vendo, entertainment, security, business management and public relations “I can see BaconFest becoming the Veishea of the fall,” Swanson said. Aimed toward students as well as the public, BaconFest, which will host live bands and recreational activities such as a bacon eating contest, will also seek to provide an educational experience for those in attendance.

“We’re really going to provide a very strong, educational aspect to this event which really will set us apart from other BaconFests across the country,” Swanson said. Glanz said the organization hopes to educate the public specifically about pork production and about agriculture in general. “Planning this has been very difficult because we have nothing to go off of. It’s never been done before,” Glanz said. BaconFest has gone through several changes since the original conception of the idea. For example, the event will no longer be hosted on Central Campus. A venue has been confirmed and will be

released later this week. “We’re working on getting a bunch of other stuff finalized now, so we can get the ball rolling and start getting money raised,” Liska said. Expectations for BaconFest include that it will become an annual event. “We just want to break even [financially], so that’s our current goal now. I think we should be able to do that,” Swanson said. The event has already drawn the attention of major companies in the industry, none of which have been confirmed. Swanson said as the event is planned, the committee would be in constant contact with “key” players. These include the event authorization committee, risk management and the

Origami

Club to give 1,000 paper cranes to children By Daniel.Bush @iowastatedaily.com The ISU Origami Club is planning to make 1,000 cranes to give to children at Mary Greeley Medical Center. Lynn Giang, junior in psychology, said they will start making cranes over the summer. She said the organization plans to pick up around August in making a majority of the cranes. “My goal is to meet 500 cranes by the end of September,” Giang said. The organization said they hope to have 1,000 cranes made by November to give to the medical center in December, like a Christmas gift. “I think it’s mainly to give them support, so they can fight diseases,” said Peter Wang, member of ISU Origami Club. “Our mission is to pass on art, which is folding origami, and we want to give them short term joy and long term support,” Wang said. Giang and Wang thought of the idea to make and donate the cranes. “[Cranes] always stand for hope,” Giang said. “And if you make 1,000, you can make a wish.” The organization also hopes to attach strings to the cranes so the children could hang them from the ceiling of their room. Giang said they hope to make it feel more like home for them. They also plan on getting more of the community involved in helping them make the cranes, Wang said. “Basically anyone that is willing to help out, they can come and help,”

1,000 Cranes

Photo: Suit Yee/Iowa State Daily Senior Hannah Giang and sophomore Yiran Xu, members of the ISU Origami Club, fold paper cranes on Friday. The club plans to fold 1,000 paper cranes and give them to Mary Greeley Hospital by the end of 2013.

Wang said. Giang said there were different levels of origami depending on how hard the piece is to make and the amount of steps to create it. Cranes are a lower level of difficulty. Ngoc Le, junior in mechanical engineering, said he spent most of his time in middle school reading books at the library about origami. Le took most of that knowledge to teach members of the group. During Easter, he showed the club how to make a rabbit. “It was kind of difficult for them, so I had to show them step by step,” Le said. “It took over an hour to teach them.”

Le said he can now finish folding a crane in under two minutes. The organization makes anything from dragons and flowers to peacocks and Pikachu’s. Giang said it took at least 1,000 pieces of paper to complete her peacock origami piece. Members also participate in teaching elementary students how to make origami figures. The ISU Origami Club partnered with Giving Children Hope, a volunteering organization set out to fundraise and donate to local hospitals for children, to make paper cranes and other origami figures to give to children, Giang said.

The tradition was made known through a story called “Sadoko and the Thousand Paper Cranes.” ■■ Sadoko was 2 years old and was exposed to radiation after the bombing of Hiroshima in World War II. ■■ She developed leukemia. ■■ At 12 years old, the senbazuru legend inspired her to make 1,000 cranes to make a wish. ■■ She died only getting to 644 cranes. ■■ Her classmates honored her by finishing the last of the 356 cranes.

Different meanings Making 1,000 cranes has had several meanings: ■■ 1,000 cranes = one wish ■■ 1,000 cranes = eternal good luck ■■ Making 1,000 cranes is a process of healing ■■ Creating 1,000 cranes brings hope during hard times

The organization has a total of 71 members, including ISU members, faculty and staff and non-ISU members, according to the ISU Origami Club website. The club does not have dues, so there is no cost to join.

DRAKE RELAYS PREPARE IOWA STATE FOR BIG 12S iowastatedaily.com

Track & field: Okoro sisters lead team at Drake Relays DES MOINES — Ese Okoro set a new personal record in the 400-meter hurdles, finished first and joined her sister Ejiro with a Drake Relays flag of her own. After clipping the first hurdle with her left foot, Ese regained her form and stormed to the front of the group. Ese finished in 57.43, the 10thbest time in the 400-meter hurdles in the nation. “It feels good, I’ve been struggling with my stride progression, so it’s good that I got it down before the Big 12s,” Ese said. Ejiro anchored the Cyclones’ first-place finish in the 4x1,600-meter relay on Thursday, winning the event at Drake for the first time in ISU history. Last season, Ese finished as the runner-up in the 400-meter hurdles and is happy to have finally earned a Drake Relays flag. With her sister cheering her on, Ese was able to overcome a slow start to win in convincing fashion. — Isaac Copley

NFL Draft claims Cyclones By Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com Carter Bykowski was outside on his deck, at his home in Eden Prairie, Minn., watching the TV through the window as the 2013 NFL Draft winded down, only nine picks remaining in the seventh round. Then, with the San Francisco 49ers on deck awaiting the No. 246 overall pick, the former ISU offensive

lineman’s phone rang. The 49ers were going to take him. “My family was jumping up and down, screaming,” Bykowski said. “I didn’t expect it at all, I thought I would have had some opportunities after the draft and hopefully I had some things to choose from.” Bykowski had spent some time prior to the draft talking with the 49ers, but felt he had some other possibilities lined up to sign as an undrafted free agent following the draft. Last season, Bykowski started in all 13 games for Iowa State at left tackle and played in 13 games in 2011. That came after Bykowski made the transition from tight end, where he played his freshman season. “Playing my freshman year to redshirting the second year, ... you question a few things just because you’re playing, then all of a sudden you’re not at all,” Bykowski said. The move paid off Saturday on the third day of the draft with his newfound opportunity in the NFL. Bykowski will compete behind starting tackles Joe Staley and Anthony Davis.

Other signees Former ISU wide receiver Josh Lenz announced via Twitter that he is, “Gonna be a Chicago Bear!” Lenz had an injury-riddled season as a senior, but performed well at Iowa State’s pro day, running an unofficial 4.35 40-yard dash and did 22 reps for bench press. Former ISU linebacker Jake Knott signed as an undrafted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive tackle Jake McDonough also signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets.

San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke was impressed with Bykowski’s hard work. Bykowski played in 45 games during his ISU career. “Toughness,” Baalke said at a news conference following the draft when asked what he likes about Bykowski. “He’s a tough guy; he’s a guy that’s not afraid to get dirty.”

By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com AJ Klein was shooting pool in his basement at his home in Kimberly, Wis., on Saturday during the third day of the 2013 NFL Draft, waiting for his phone to ring. But it didn’t. It was his dad’s phone that rang with an NFL team on the other end: the Carolina Panthers were taking him with the No. 15 pick (148th overall) in the fifth round. “Words can’t begin to describe how I feel right now and the sense of relief I have and I think it’s going to be a great place and a great fit for me,” Klein said. Klein now joins former ISU offensive lineman Hayworth Hicks as a member of the Panthers. Klein is the first linebacker taken from Iowa State in the fifth round since Alvin Bowen was taken No. 147 over-

all in 2008 and Tim Dobbins was taken No. 151 in 2006. Despite receiving interest from almost every team in the NFL at one point or another, Klein made visits to the Houston Texans, Chicago Bears and San Diego Chargers. Klein said he was surprised by the Panthers picking him. “I didn’t talk to them the most, but obviously I knew they showed interest at East/ West and Combine and Pro Day,” Klein said. “Like I said, it doesn’t matter where I go, I just got very fortunate. I’m very excited to end up in Carolina.” Klein will likely join the Panthers as a backup to one of the strongest corps of linebackers in the NFL with Thomas Davis, John Beason and Luke Kuechly. At the 2013 NFL Combine in February, ESPN’s Todd McShay told the Daily the best chance for Klein to make an immediate impact would be on special teams. “You’ve got to get down the field and you’ve got to cover kicks and you’ve got to be an animal, you’ve got to make that your mentality,” McShay said.

Environment

Editorial:

Instinct can save you in time of crisis Last Friday we lamented the lack of common sense being exercised lately in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. Namely, bemoaning the overzealous obedience to the “if you see something, say something” philosophy that was giving rise to a rash of false bomb reports in the area and around the country. One bomb went off somewhere and suddenly every unattended box and bag in America was a bomb too. As is often the case, we poked a bit of fun at what were, in the end, pretty ridiculous situations. One has to admit, sending the SWAT team in to rescue the city from tea, Hallmark cards and homework is pretty comical. But there is a serious side to all this, and we’d be remiss in our public duty if we didn’t address it. In talking about “if you see something, say something,” we are reminded of that scene towards the end of the movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” during which Daniel Craig’s character is caught snooping around the house by the murderer and is invited in. Craig knows he’s in trouble and should run away, but after hesitating, he accepts the invitation anyway. One thing leads to another, and predictably, Craig finds himself tied up, suffocating with a bag over his head and seconds away from having his intestines cut out from his stomach before being rescued by the girl with the dragon tattoo. During the exchange between the characters, the bad guy ridicules Craig for not obeying his instincts; he knew something bad was going to happen, but out of his fear of offending the killer, he went along with the killer’s demands — and ended up bound and swinging like a side of beef, about to be eviscerated. This is a case where art imitates life. We shouldn’t let the lesson pass by. The ISU Police Department puts on a free school shooting training program called Violent Incident Response Training. During this training, one of the officers will tell you humans are the only animal on the planet that rationalizes fear. And he’s right: When we encounter a suspicious character, rather than leaving the room or otherwise reacting to protect ourselves, we think “Oh, he’s just a little different, it’s okay.” We fear offending someone more than we fear the real possibilities of actual danger. And sometimes that fear has deadly consequences. “If you see something, say something” is supposed to be a command for action. Humans often fail to act when they lack direction. As you would also see in Violent Incident Response Training, were you to take it, when faced with a horrifying situation, people will very frequently do absolutely nothing — that is, until someone else acts and shows them what to do. Your fear is a gift. Many times our “spidey sense” tingles right before something bad happens. This makes sense because most of our brain function is unconscious, so it stands to reason we’re picking up on things we’re not aware of. Sometimes that weird feeling is spot-on and it’s telling you to react. Yes, as we mentioned Friday, you must have common sense, but don’t ignore your other senses either. If you see something, please do say something, it just might save some lives.

Algae concerns increasing

H

armful algal blooms are becoming more and more prevalent in waters all over the world, and while their bright colors might look pretty, they can negatively affect humans and wildlife everywhere. In recent years, the number of algal blooms worldwide has been increasing at a rapid rate. They are happening more frequently, lasting longer and are covering more area overall. Algae are single-celled organisms that multiply very quickly in warm water rich in oxygen and can survive in both freshwater and saltwater environments. There are approximately 400 species of microscopic algae in the oceans and at least 300 are connected to algal blooms. This is when a species of microalgae or phytoplankton goes through a period of excessive growth that basically creates a monoculture in the aquatic area. It can turn the surface of the water various colors, such as red, brown, yellow, green or white, and if the microalgae contains toxic or harmful properties, they are cleverly called harmful algal blooms. While not all algal blooms are toxic, there are about 40 species that produce toxins that can harm humans and other organisms through inhalation, digestion of shellfish, contaminated water or skin contact. Symptoms can include memory loss, nausea, stomach cramps, amnesia, liver damage, convulsions, impacted heart and kidney function, paralysis, and even fatality. Aquaculture in the United States has seen harmful algal blooms in areas along the West Coast, Great Lakes and other bodies of water. People all over the world are affected by algal blooming; it can even affect those of us in Iowa directly or indirectly. Other species of algae might not produce toxins, but some can affect marine life in ways that

Courtesy photo Algal blooms, both toxic and nontoxic, are becoming increasingly common and pose a serious threat to humans and other ecosystems. The best way to combat algal blooms is to reduce pollution levels.

By Caitlin.Ellingson @iowastatedaily.com include producing barbs, which destroy gill tissues, or damaging the food supply for other creatures. Still others are essentially very passive, except for the fact they can deplete the oxygen supply in the water — leaving less oxygen for marine life that needs it and could eventually suffocate and die from lack of oxygen. These areas of oxygen-depleted water are called dead zones. Humans might be playing an important role in the rapid algal blooming due to their interactions with the environment through agriculture, mining and sewage outfalls. The excess nutrients in the water from runoff can create a perfect environment for phytoplankton to thrive. Climate change and the human activity associated

with it can also be creating ideal environments for growth because of the warmer temperatures of the water. In addition, these effects are increasing every day due to the overall human population growing at an exponential rate and the growing amount of wastes produced. Some of the worst algal blooms can be attributed to humans. One such scenario happened off the British Columbia coast in Canada, where a man dumped 220,462 pounds of iron sulfate into the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to increase salmon populations. It resulted in intense algal blooming that spanned an area of 3,861 square miles, which is large enough that it can be seen from space using satellite images. Other cases of massive algal blooming happened in Lake Erie in 2011, when it experienced one

of the worst blooms in recorded history as the blue-green algae spread along the Canadian and U.S. shores from Toledo, Ohio, to beyond Cleveland and extended into the water as far as 60 feet down. There are no easy treatments for algae blooms. The best ideas are to educate people on the effects and use preventative strategies based on the information collected so far. The main way to reduce the number of algal blooms is to simply reduce the pollution levels on the planet. Excess nutrients and runoff can be maintained or limited if we put in more effort to protecting these ecosystems.

Letters to the Editor

More to sports than winning

I recently read Alexander Maxwell’s opinion article titled, “College sports do not foster good feelings,” and as a sports fan, found it to be out of touch and almost insulting. Throughout the article he argues college sports create more losers than they do winners. I would agree, however, I would argue this is not a problem. My dad is a gym teacher and I have four brothers, so I was surrounded by sports from a young age. Have I lost more games than I ever won? Sure, but did that leave me a broken, disheartened human being? Absolutely not. Do I dislike losing? Of course, I would go so

far as to say I hate it. But I’ve learned far more from losing than I ever have from winning. Losing brought me and my teammates closer, it pushed me to get better. It also taught me to be a realist. It taught me that sometimes, no matter how hard I try, it’s possible that I’m not the best, and that’s okay. There is honor in losing so long as you played the right way. Sure, sports praise winners more than losers, but they are praising their superior skills, not the quality of their character. Losing doesn’t make you a lesser human being; it just means that on that night, you

didn’t play as well as the other team. We can’t ignore that college sports bring about some of the most inspiring stories seen in today’s world. Eric LeGrand from Rutgers lead his team from his wheelchair, and Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old with cancer, scored a touchdown in the Nebraska spring football game. Yes, sports label one team a winner and one a loser, but if that’s all you can focus on as a sports fan, you’re missing the ball entirely.

Veishea injuries Satirical column mar ISU’s image not so humorous I arrived at Mary Greeley Medical Center Emergency Department on Saturday, April 20, at approximately 7 a.m. with symptoms of severe abdominal pain. The staff was prompt, professional and compassionate. They diagnosed me with acute cholecystitis (gall bladder) and informed me that I would be going into surgery soon. At that time, other patients began arriving suffering from injuries sustained during Veishea “festivities” the night before. Patient No. 1 suffered a compound fracture and was moved ahead of me. An hour later, I was informed by the triage doctor of another fracture patient was bumped ahead of me as well. But there was more to come as additional alcohol related injuries and illnesses were moved ahead of me. After being there for approximately 11 hours, I was taken into surgery. I was informed the next day that Saturday night/Sunday morning, the staff went through it General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students

all over again. A normal gallbladder surgery is often an outpatient procedure. Other times, a 24-hour stay is required. In my case, I was there two additional days. I can’t help but think the delay I endured waiting for treatment as “more pressing cases” were moved ahead of me had something to do with my need to be hospitalized the extra nights. Needless to say, I am quite concerned about the additional expenses for my extended stay. Obviously, there was turmoil and disruption in the streets of Ames directly associated with Veishea weekend. The Ames Police, Fire Department and the Emergency Medical Service personnel had their hands full all weekend. So to the Veishea colleges, this conduct is out of control ... and it makes you look bad.

Though I realized your piece was written satirically, I felt the need to respond on behalf of those who did not catch on to this fashionably late April Fools’ joke. Losing does indeed make me sad, but not nearly as sad as I felt after finding this article in the Daily. When interviewing someone, it is helpful to ask a deep enough question so their response brings some knowledge to the table. For instance, I asked my roommate if he preferred sleeping on a mattress or on used needles. He chose the former, but we can all agree that no but a heroine junky would have taken the needles. You mentioned that we offer a great number of diversitybased scholarships, but say competition is not useful and therefore academic merit should not be considered. Are you saying that scholarships should be awarded to people solely on race and not on hard $62, annually, for the general public.

work or success? While few people will receive any physical trophies later in life, people will earn metaphorical trophies, such as employment. Maybe in the Gumdrop Forest where your argument is valid, employers can just post resumes on a wall and throw darts at them. When I say resume, I mean a sheet of paper with a name since accomplishments now mean nothing in this magical land. Unfortunately, we’re not cutting down lollipop trees outside the sea monkey hut because this is the real world. And now that this article has received national attention from several comedy Twitter accounts, it makes me feel even more sad. Actually, after re-reading this article, I am now confident you’re kidding. Good luck in life.

Fun Facts Robert Lincoln, son of President Lincoln, was saved from a nasty railroad accident by Edwin Booth. Edwin was the brother of Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Cheetah, the chimpanzee that appeared in 12 Tarzan films, celebrated his 75th birthday in April 2007. He resides at a sanctuary in Palm Springs, California, for retired show business animals. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake wasn’t terribly devastating on its own. It was the massive three-day fire following the tremor that destroyed the city’s downtown. The famous Mount Rushmore in South Dakota featuring the heads of presidents Washington, T. Roosevelt, Jefferson, and Lincoln was built solely as a tourist trap to give South Dakota tourism dollars that it desperately needed. And guess what? It worked. Almost 3 million people visit the mountain each year. Cheddar cheese that has been ripened for six months is considered “mild.” Seven months to a year of ripening makes “sharp” cheddar, and two years worth of aging yields an “extra sharp” product. The Orange River in southern Africa isn’t named for the fruit or the color; it’s named for the Dutch royal family who sent explorers to “discover” the area.

THE FASHION SHOW

WINNERS BACK IN SPOTLIGHT By Stephanie Noble ISD Style Writer

Whether you love art or fashion or are simply proud of your school, the Mary Alice Gallery has an event for you. From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Monday, you can head to 1015 Morrill Hall and witness the grand opening of The Fashion Show 2013 exhibit. The exhibit showcases 20 of the winning garments from the show, which took place April 13, allowing those who could not attend to see why The Fashion Show causes such a stir year

upon year. The garments shown in the display are all first- and second-place winners from the show, the “creme de la creme.” Those who attended the show can now get a chance to see how the pieces look close up, said Kristie Syring and Sara Kinderknecht, the Gallery and Display directors. Both were especially excited about a few examples of this, including senior Molly Charipar’s “Tailored for Tots” line. “She digitally printed all of the tops with different bug patterns,” Syring said. “From afar it would be a detail that would be hard to see.”

The show itself attracted more than 2,000 audience members this year, which shows the event’s magnitude. The exhibit not only demonstrates pride in the hard work of all of the apparel students but it also highlights the importance of the show to the program. The support from alumni, parents and fellow students each April for the past 31 years has helped encourage design students to make their collections more creative, and this exhibit gives attendees the opportunity to see the results of this in detail. Syring and Kinderknecht confirmed this

spring that the exhibit will differ from that of previous years. “We are featuring a timeline of the show with the exhibit. It allows our viewer to better understand the whole process,” Syring said. Attendees will be given handouts of all of the winners’ design statements. For those who haven’t already picked one up, The Fashion Show T-shirts will also be sold at the opening. After the opening night, the exhibit will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays until Aug. 30. Admission is free, but flash photography is prohibited.

NOW IN PRINT By Ian Laughead ISD Style Writer

F a s h i o n

Welcome to spring, everyone. With temperatures finally hitting the high notes this week, change is definitely in the air. Don’t shed those layers too quick though; now more than ever, we are seeing as significant a shift in climate as we are in clothing. Those pseudo-authentic heritage menswear trends are slowly getting pushed out by a warm front. A warmly patterned and printed front that is. Men’s clothes this spring and summer are an escape from the super-traditional look we saw last year. Replacing classic chambrays and chinos are vibrant patterns with even more vibrant personalities. Making its way off the runway and down to the real world, the makings of a few Parisian- and London-based designers has predicated a full-on megatrend of camouflage everything and a full rethink of the traditional textile print. Camo has been around seemingly forever, but this time around it’s doing it big and brashly and not taking “no” for an answer. Camo can be found on bow ties, flatbills and sneakers, and frankly, there’s not much you can’t make louder and more militant with some fatigues. New in the menswear arena, however, we’re seeing two patterns making a giant leap for man from the back of women’s closets: polka dots and florals. In print, those words look so foreign to men’s wardrobe, but in reality, designers have styled them down, taking out all the frilly girlishness and making them — dare we say it — masculine. A white dot on a dark ground tie is a bit dapper but quite daring. We’ve even seen the print on rucksacks, proving its versatility. The florals though? These aren’t your grandma’s roses or carnations. Bold birds of paradise give off a tropical, not-tourist vibe, one that says “I own the beach” more than “I live on it.” But who’s to stop anyone from trying a Hawaiian surfer hibiscus print? Not us. After all, the only way men’s fashion works is if you give off that devil-may-care attitude. Tops in that category, however, is a bandana print that looks like it was pulled straight off a motorcyclist’s unhelmeted head. Carried down and applied to shorts looks great paired with a simple T-shirt, and on its own, pulls off a trendy-but-not-trying-toohard look. Put it together with a camo jacket, floral shirt and polka dot bag? Try it and get back to us.
