ISU STUDENT WINS DEATH MARCH iowastatedaily.com/news File photo: Blake Lanser/Iowa State Daily After the announcement of the 2013 Government of the Student Body election results, President-elect Spencer Hughes and Vice President-elect Hillary Kletscher speak about their plans for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year.
GSB wants voters GREEKS PRACTICE UNIQUE RITUALS iowastatedaily.com/news
Low turnout might prompt rule changes By Katie.Grunewald @iowastatedaily.com
The Government of the Student Body presidential election that occurred the week before Spring Break had a low voter turnout. Election Commissioner Adam Guenther wanted 15 percent of the student population to vote. Approximately half of that voted.

GSB to vote on 4 orders at last meeting The last Government of Student Body meeting of this term will be held Wednesday. The next term starts April 10 with President-elect Spencer Hughes and the new Senate. “The Vander Velden Knight Compromise: Protecting Student Fee Money” proposes to insert a clause into the GSB bylaws declaring that an organization can not be forprofit or participate in profit ventures if it wishes to receive GSB funding. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union. —Katie Grunewald

Along with several other campaign rules, there was a new one this year: No active campaigning while the polls are open or 24 hours before they open. This may have had a role in voter turnout. President-elect Spencer Hughes was at the GSB Senate meeting where this new rule was voted on. “There was no debate from the Senate about this issue,” Hughes said. “There were other provisions of the bill that got more attention, like no campaigning during classes, and the no active campaigning just kind of slipped through.”
Many are concerned that the new campaign rule impacted the number of people who voted. “There is a huge concern after seeing the turnout dropping fairly significantly,” Hughes said. “I think not having the ability to campaign after the polls were open held the candidates back; I’m just very glad the election commission decided social media wasn’t a part of the ban.” Guenther explained there would be no way to ban social media, especially Twitter. He said that even if the candidates were banned from
Iowan talks growing up in two-mom household
By Miranda.Freeman @iowastatedaily.com The son of lesbian mothers who famously spoke out in support of same-sex marriage for his family in January 2011 to the Iowa House Judiciary Committee came to Iowa state to share his experiences Tuesday night in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. Zach Wahls, part-time
engineering student at the University of Iowa, spoke about what makes a family. The Iowa House Judiciary Committee decided to pass the Defense of Marriage Act bill. The bill means same-sex marriage would not be recognized in all 50 states, only in the states that do legalize same-sex marriage.
ISU gains NAACP chapter
New group prepares, plans for fall semester By Mike.Randleman @iowastatedaily.com The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, an organization rooted in more than 100 years of history in the United States, now has a foothold at Iowa State. The new student chapter, recently recognized March 7 as an official student organization at Iowa State, will
seek to provide opportunities for all students. “Everyone’s free to join the organization, no matter who you are or what your background is. The NAACP doesn’t discriminate based on race, ethnicity or anything like that,” said Jessica Avant, NAACP Iowa/ Nebraska State Conference president and senior in political science at Iowa State. Given the early stages of the student chapter, planning and preparations remain in the works to prepare for the fall semester when the op-
erations of the chapter will be in full swing. “We’re still in our infancy. We plan to work over the summer to work on something we’ll propose in the fall to incoming and current members,” said Hannah McKeever, treasurer for the organization and junior in journalism and mass communication at Iowa State, in reference to the organization’s plan of action. In terms of what the organization will aim to achieve, a balance of
ISU violated policy during 3-year span By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com The ISU athletic department has entered into a summary disposition with the NCAA as a result of impermissible Pollard phone calls and text messages sent from 2008 to 2011, according to a news release issued Tuesday. Self-imposed penalties, which were enforced for the 2011-12 academic year, include a reduction in the number of coaches traveling to recruit as well as a reduction in the number of phone calls that could be made during a four-month period. Also included in the self-imposed penalties is the requirement for all coaches to attend a compliance education session regarding phone calls and text messages. The sports, however, have not been disclosed. The department also recommended that the school be placed on a two-year probation, according to the release. Details about the proposed probation have not been released. “We are hopeful the NCAA will recognize our sincere effort to adhere to NCAA rules and will accept our self-imposed sanctions,” said ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard in the news release. “We are definitely a stronger organization as a result of what we learned about our internal monitoring system, and we look forward to resolving these self-reported violations in a timely manner.” Of the more than 750,000 phone calls made in the three-year period, 79 were made during the time in which coaches and their staffs were not allowed to call recruits. The department also found 1,405 calls in that time frame which were made but did not connect, according to the release. Both of those are NCAA violations. As it stands right now, if the NCAA’s committee on infractions decides that the school did not do a thorough-enough investigation in its reporting of the infractions, then a hearing and a further investigation will be conducted. The committee also reserves the right to suggest more penalties if it decides the self-imposed penalties by the school to be insufficient. The release stated that the university will not comment any further on the case until it is resolved with the NCAA. Check back to iowastatedaily. com as this story develops.

Grant enables new position By Mike.Randleman @iowastatedaily.com Beginning in 2015, the department of civil, construction and environmental engineering at Iowa State will feature the new endowed Greenwood department chair position. The new position will be named after and made possible by contributions from ISU alumni Don and Sharon Greenwood. Their contributions will soon climb to the $2 million mark. “Department funds are very limited. Most of them are committed to faculty lines, staff positions, graduate assistants, scholarships, etc. There’s not a lot of flexibility in the budget,” said Mufit Akinc, interim dean of the College of Engineering at Iowa State.
The Greenwoods’ contributions will help to bolster the civil, construction and environmental engineering department by means of providing added flexibility for fund allocation. “When you bring in something like this, it provides the flexibility for the department chair. If they have a vision to emphasize certain areas — whether it’s for research, for scholarships — they have this fund to really move and make an impact in a short time without waiting for the funds to come,” Akinc said. The quality of faculty in the department is also expected to be strengthened. “The idea for endowing the fund is to get better, more qualified professors [for the position], which hopefully, in
turn, allows that person to hire better teachers and professors and hopefully allows us, as a company, to have a big relationship with civil, construction and environmental engineering to have access to good students,” Don said. Don is the president of the construction division of Burns & McDonnell, a firm out of Kansas City, Mo. In the end, students are those intended to benefit most from the position’s establishment. “Whether we see it [the funds] renovating space or whether we provide scholarships or whether we provide stipends for graduate students, all of that is about getting a better education environment for the students. The faculty or the department chair does not take an additional salary; it’s used for operation of this department to make it better,” Akinc said. The Greenwoods elected to increase their contributions, which have gradually increased over a five-year period; Don alluded to a timing aspect. “Basically, we had the ability to do it, and I wanted to be able to take advantage of developing a long-term association with Iowa State before I
Position facts The civil, construction, and environmental engineering department will become the third of eight departments in the College of Engineering to feature an endowed department chair position. The position will be titled the Greenwood department chair, named after Don and Sharon Greenwood, current contributors to the department. The endowment seeks to attract stronger faculty, provide enhanced and flexible funding, and enhance the overall academic experience for students in civil, construction and environmental engineering.
retired. It just made sense, I thought, because we had the latitude and ability to do it now instead of waiting,” Don said. Also, an affinity for the university played a part in the decision. “I’ve always appreciated what Iowa State did for me in terms of giving me a good education that allowed me to never stop my activities in construction,” Don said. “We love Iowa State; we wish the best for Iowa State.”

ISU alumnus nominated for men’s designs
Latest line inspired by ‘50s motorcycles By Jessi.Wilson @iowastatedaily.com Todd Snyder, menswear designer and ISU alumnus, has been nominated for the Swarovski Award for Menswear this year. The Council of Fashion Designers of America announced nominees for their 2013 Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards, which will take place on June 3 in New York City. “It’s great,” Snyder said on his nomination. “It has been a dream come true. I love what I do, and this makes me happy that I went in the direction that I did and followed my dreams.” Voted best dressed in high school, Snyder said he was always interested in clothing, but he originally attended Iowa State to pursue a career in finance. Working as a salesman at Badowers, a men’s clothing store in Des Moines, is how Snyder discovered his true passion for fashion design. “While selling there, I became interested in what was happening in the tailor’s shop,” Snyder explained.
“I quickly started to help out afterhours and weekends. I fell in love with making and altering garments, and from there I decided I wanted to be a designer.” After graduating with a degree in fashion design, Snyder moved to New York City to pursue his design career working for Ralph Lauren, his favorite designer. “It was something in my blood,” Snyder said about his passion for apparel design. “After working at Badowers, I knew that I wanted to be a designer. Come to find out from my Grandma Snyder that in Dutch, Snyder meant tailor.” After working for other prominent fashion labels, such as Gap Inc. and J. Crew, Snyder launched his own menswear collection in 2011, which first appeared in Bergdorf Goodman, Ron Herman and Neiman Marcus. Today, with two award nominations and recognition as one of GQ Magazine’s Best New Menswear Designers, Todd Snyder New York is becoming more popular in the world of menswear. “Mr. Snyder is who I can thank for showing me a whole new side of fashion,” said Eileen Moores, sophomore in apparel, merchandising and design. “Last year he featured his line in the Iowa State Fashion Show, and
right then I was inspired to do a new route in fashion.” Moores now holds the position of Men’s Fashion Director for the campus publication Trend Magazine, and said she enjoys the types of garments Snyder makes, as well as the theme of his line. “The type of clothes he makes are timeless pieces that men can wear over and over,” Moores said. “He is able to make a classic garment fashion-forward with the small details he adds.” The designer’s fall 2013 collection was inspired by British motorcycles from the 1950s. “I wanted to mix it up with tailored jackets,” Snyder said. “I wanted to have a gentleman’s approach to tailoring. I was trying to be a little badass for the season.” The designer described himself as a pretty average guy who believes in dressing simply and investing in styles that can be worn for many years. “I like sports, cars, bars, but I also like clothes,” Snyder explained. “My philosophy is clothes can make the guy. It’s important to always look your best. Girls love a well-dressed man.” Store openings in Japan and New York are next for the designer’s brand, and Snyder recently trav-

eled to Japan for a pop-up shop at Barney’s New York. “It was a big event. All their top clients showed up,” Snyder said. “I was able to meet a lot of my customers. It was a lot of fun.” For future designers at Iowa State, Snyder said it is important to
start from the bottom and work your way up. “I did that through my entire career,” Snyder said. “Some people get impatient and want to skip steps. They are the ones that never make it. Work hard, and good things will come.”
Leath addresses controversy with Faculty Senate Increasing enrollment, Harkin Institute discussed By Danielle.Ferguson @iowastatedaily.com ISU President Steven Leath faced pressing questions from members of the Faculty Senate regarding the Harkin Institute controversy. At the Faculty Senate’s meeting Tuesday, Leath opened the floor for questions, which led to the topic of the Harkin Institute. Leath said that there have definitely been lessons learned from the situation. “I still believe there’s a lot of inherent risk in naming any institute or entity of a public university after a sitting politician. I think we should have been more thoughtful and careful when we did it,” Leath said. “Starting [the process] the way we did was inherently dangerous.” The issue of the institute overlapping the interest of the Center of Agricultural and Rural Development or the Department of Agriculture in performing agricultural research is lesson number two. Leath said that having the institute’s primary function be agriculture probably would have been fine, had the Center of Agricultural and Rural Development and the Department of Agriculture been notified. “That is naturally going to create some distrust. I think we should be cooperative and collaborative, and how is that possible when we start off like that?” Leath said. What was equally as “bad,” as Leath put it, was not informing the Harkins or the Harkin Institute of the restriction on working with agriculture, creating distrust on the other side of the situation. The vote conducted by the Board of Regents on the original documents may have also spiked this misunderstanding.
The board’s vote said that the Harkin Institute had no overlap with existing programs at Iowa State, with Leath responding by saying, “That was just wrong.” Leath said he feels the whole situation should be Leath redone. “We [could] go all the way back to the faculty. They would address any concerns about academic freedom and just start all over in the full light. Had that been done in a much more studious, thoughtful, open manner, we wouldn’t be in this situation,” Leath said. “Lesson learned. If we want to have another institute or center, I’ll be all for it, but we’ll insist that it be done in the light.” Leath also addressed concerns on the subject of the controversial Board of Regents nominees. He advised faculty members to stay neutral in the situation and to let it take a natural course, saying the situation will get worse before it gets better, so it’s best for faculty not to get involved. Faculty members are anxious about the projected increase in students for fall 2013. Leath, for the first time, said 32,000 is roughly the expected number, putting additional strain on teachers in the classroom. Student enrollment increased 25 percent in the last 10 years, and the faculty has not noticeably grown. To compensate for the student increase, Leath and Provost Jonathan Wickert have a goal of hiring 200 new faculty members in about 24 months. Seventy new faculty members have already been added. Leath also shared an initiative to enhance institutional excellence. Stressing the need for a strong faculty, the initiative includes a desire to increase doctorate and graduate student enrollment, build a collaborative science culture, increase national recognition of faculty, and how to enhance the arts and humanities program. Leath stressed to the faculty how important
President Steven Leath visits Faculty Senate President Steven Leath visited the Faculty Senate at their meeting on Tuesday. Leath addressed Harkin Institute and Board of Regents nominee controversy. Lessons learned from the Harkin Institute situation were to be more cautious when naming a campus entity after a political figure and being
more open with the function of the institutions. Leath said that, if he could, he would go back in time and re-do the entire Harkin Institute situation, with all parts of the process “in the light.” The faculty was given praise for being the heart and soul of campus, crucial to students’ education and overall experience.
they are to maintaining a strong campus unit. “I always look at campuses as churches,” Leath said. “They’re not about the building,
they’re about the congregation, the people there. The faculty are the heart and soul of the campus … we want to do whatever we can to help you.”

Courts should have immunity from populism As the United States Supreme Court sat down last week to hear oral arguments in cases concerning California’s Proposition 8, which was a state constitutional amendment to limit marriage to heterosexual couples, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which did the same thing for the federal government’s purposes, many people expressed their opposition to those laws by changing their Facebook profile pictures to a pink or white equals sign on a red background. We wonder how many of those individuals have already changed their profile pictures to something else because they forgot the Supreme Court will not release its rulings on these cases for several more months. But mainly, we wonder how many of those individuals thought that the Supreme Court would care. Changing one’s profile picture on a social media platform is quite possibly the most empty way of expressing support or opposition to something. Nothing can ever replace the genuine political action that takes place between individuals. The great cultural delusion of the Digital Age seems to be that expressing ourselves on a computer network where the people we connect with are people we connect with out of choice (as opposed to, say, Congress, which is a congregation of individuals who wanted to be a member of that body but not necessarily to be a peer of people from other parties or districts), is a meaningful kind of expression. Social media can be a prelude to interaction, but is no substitute for talking with people and trying to understand and convince them. Even without considering social media’s small ability to create actual political action, changing profile pictures to a symbol supporting same-sex marriage — and even demonstrating outside the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. — are not applicable to the Supreme Court’s activities. Unlike political issues, which all have a day in the law books, justice is a timeless concept that is unchanging. Whereas law and policy, which are the result of politics, deal with problems of current events and are designed to resolve problems that may be present today but not tomorrow, judicial decisions have but one concern: whether an action was just or not. That is especially the case when the arguments in the cases about Proposition 8 and DOMA deal with marriage equality. A court system that is insulated from current events is a good thing in that it does not allow the courts to consider expediency, or what is necessary at the present time, in their decisions. This impartiality with respect to political winds has a tendency to protect everybody. In fact, that is the Supreme Court’s job: to maintain the principles of the Constitution in the face of political opposition from Congress and perhaps even the president. Showing support for same-sex couples can occur in many more productive ways. The first is realizing the difference between the political process of lawmaking and the legal process of judicial review. Pressing for a Supreme Court decision that has a higher regard for public support for same-sex marriage is as dangerous as leaving a matter of equality to fickle political winds that blow north one day and south the next.

Courtesy photo Iowa’s large agriculture industry contributes to the state’s high number of waterways which are considered to be impaired. Columnist Phil Brown argues that though farmers don’t intentionally contribute to impaired waterways, they can contribute by helping to clean the water.
Iowa deserves great water
ere in Iowa, we love our land. As a lifetime resident of this state, I am fairly confident when I say we have some pretty darn good earth. The soil beneath our feet is used to produce an amazing amount and array of products, including over two billion bushels of corn and over 450 million bushels of soybeans every year. In addition to crops, our state is home to almost four million head of cattle and 20 million hogs. That is quite a lot to be proud of for sure, but such a high amount of agriculture comes with some high costs. In Iowa, we have a growing problem with impaired waterways. A waterway can become impaired, and subsequently placed on an impaired waterways list, when it fails to meet all standards for its intended uses. These uses are generally things like fishing or being used for drinking water. In 2012, the number of impaired Iowa waterways was 628. This is an increase from 606 in 2010 and 542 in 2008, according to Iowa Department of Natural Resources reports analyzed by Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement. Waterways can become impaired due to a variety of causes, including accidental fertilizer or manure spills, soil erosion, and pathogen occurrence. While heavy metal contamination, industrial pollution and other causes can also impair waterways, it is not a stretch to conclude that Iowa’s waterways are being impaired because of our agriculture. The state of Iowa and the Federal Environmental Protection Agency would agree. In our state’s latest water quality assessment sent to the EPA, agriculture is the largest known source contributing to waterway impairment. That agriculture relies on modern innovations which, while increasing productivity,
By Phil.Brown @iowastatedaily.com have negative environmental effects. One of the most significant of these innovations is tiling. Fields that have been tiled have a drainage system installed underground, which aids crop production by lowering the water table (the level at which water fills all the spaces in soil). That same drainage also pipes nutrients from the soil, mostly nitrate, directly into adjacent waterways, bypassing the nutrients’ natural filter, soil. When high concentrations of nitrate enter waterways, organisms like algae flourish. This not only increases turbidity, or cloudiness, of water, but leads to oxygen removal when dead algae decompose. This is the same chain of events that creates the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. In all fairness, most landowners, farmers, and livestock owners in Iowa likely care a great deal about our state’s waterways, and would never intentionally pollute them. Many individuals have even found ways to actively combat their contributions to water pollution. One way to accomplish this is by collecting and selling or composting manure, a common source of nutrient pollution, instead of letting it enter water systems. Another common practice is the use of riparian buffer strips, which line waterways with grasses and other non-crop plants, to reduce the amount of eroded soil entering the water. Despite these well-meaning individuals, violations of Iowa’s water quality standards abound. Many, such as myself, feel that this
problem is only being exacerbated by Governor Terry Branstad. Branstad has long been a proponent of Iowa business and agricultural groups. In showing his support, Branstad has backed voluntary compliance measures for environmental quality standards. Voluntary compliance measures limit the ability for officials to enforce legal standards, relying instead on individuals to effectively police themselves. This is seen by some as a way to keep government from overburdening the people of Iowa, making sure the average farmer is not punished simply for doing business. Unfortunately, voluntary compliance also asks large agricultural corporations, which already have little incentive to keep our communities unpolluted, to forfeit potential profit for the sake of the environment. Branstad has also made sure local regulation of animal confinements does not exist. He supported House File 519, a bill passed in 1995, which stripped counties of zoning authority over industrial animal confinements. This led to an influx of extremely large confinements, which act as an incredibly concentrated source of nutrient pollution. Such large confinements can also remove local livestock owners, who may care a great deal more about how they are negatively affecting their environment. In the case of our waterways, Iowa does not need more protection from government regulation, as is evidenced by our horrendous water quality record. Iowa needs and deserves clean, healthy waterways, even if it means our state has to do the unthinkable and actually enforce its own lawful standards.

Starlet should take cues from Beyonce
aylor Swift has had a very interesting career which took a running start when she was sixteen years old, and since then, she’s sold more than 22 million albums worldwide and has received seven Grammy Awards. In my opinion, her career has plateaued. It’s no doubt that she knows how to pen relatable music, but the redundancy of her “America’s Sweetheart” act and lovey-dovey music is starting to get irritating. The biggest culprit in the decline of her appeal is her love life. Taylor Swift has had six boyfriends/romantic flings since 2008, which is more exes than her number of released albums. What do they all have in common? They all have either an apologetic or an extremely vindictive song penned in their honor. It’s no secret that her broken love life serves as inspiration for the majority of her million-dollar career. Good for her for finding a muse which launched the career that she’s clearly so passionate about. The problem that I have with Swift is the reputation she’s created for herself. Maybe it’s because I’m no longer a 13-year-old girl suffering through an identity crisis and crying through “Teardrops on My Guitar.” I find myself identifying with her music less and less. As therapeutic as writing vindictive breakup songs might be, it is General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students
By Katie.Henry @iowastatedaily.com starting to get a little old. Where’s Kanye when we need him? This age group will always exist, but as artists age, so will their audiences. Swift’s songwriting seems to be like playing Mad Libs. How many different ways can she say, “I hate you” or “I never want to see you again?” Despite its catchiness, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” sounds like something I had as my MSN Messenger status when I was 14 years old. Now that Swift is 22 years old, her songwriting needs to be less whiny and a little more mature. Since 22 is apparently her golden age, maybe she should start acting like it. We can only hope that one day, she will see the light and write a song called, “Maybe I’m the Problem.” Sounds like a hit, right? She needs a breath of fresh air and a new muse for her music. I tried to come up with somebody that is extremely independent, talented, and all around fabulous. Then, after Beyonce’s show-stopping Super Bowl performance, it hit me. Think

about those 15 absolutely beautiful minutes when every woman in America decided that their new life goals were to turn into Beyonce Knowles. That is who Swift needs as her muse. Beyonce leaving Destiny’s Child and focusing on herself and her solo career was probably one of the best decisions she’s ever made. Although we had to close the door on hits like “Say My Name” and “Survivor”, Beyonce’s new career paved the way toward four solo albums and seventeen Grammy Awards, all of which were accomplished in Beyonce’s 20s. One of Beyonce’s greatest qualities is that she is charming, beautiful and basically flawless. People want to be her. Right now, Swift is on the fast track to irrelevance, and I don’t know who the teenage girls are going to turn to once she is off the radar. So, the question Taylor Swift should be asking herself is, “What would Beyonce do?” Luckily, Swift is moving in the right direction. Songs from her recent album such as “State of Grace,” “22,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble,” show that maybe, just maybe, she’s seen the error of her ways and is focusing on living out her glory years in her 20s, because they’re going to fly by before she knows it. So, instead of going to Ellen Degeneres or social media every time Swift goes through a breakup

— let’s be real, it’ll happen again — she really should just remove herself from the world for just a little bit. For now, Swift really just needs to take a lap and treat herself to a nice spa weekend and some soul searching. Who says you need a man in your life to be happy? I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand why she feels the need to constantly have a man in her life. Take a leaf out of Beyonce’s book and have a 10-year relationship before you settle down and get married. Beyonce and Jay-Z both said they wanted their careers to be about their music and not their relationships. And, after more than 10 years of being together, they are at the top of Forbes’ Highest Paid Celebrity Couples List. Neither of them truly committed until they had already accomplished what they wanted to in their careers. Once Swift figures out how to focus on herself, give her music the spark it needs, and quit chasing men, she’ll rediscover herself and avoid the dangerous path to irrelevance. I’m not saying she’ll turn into Beyonce overnight, nor that she should, but she needs to find a way to channel her newfound independence into something great.

Cut calories with copycat cooking Healthy alternatives help skip dining out By Janey Rose Kinley AmesEats Flavors writer
Eating out is often the easiest answer for college students constantly on the go. Making your way to that favorite restaurant booth or fast food drive-through is often a lot more appealing than having to do the labor yourself (especially when you think about all those dishes). However, eating out can be expensive for both your wallet and your waistline. People consume less healthful foods when eating out as opposed to dining on homemade grub, according to a 2012 article from Nutrition Reviews. This study analyzed and compiled the results of previous studies revolving around the association between eating out and body weight. Research has shown that people who eat more meals outside of the home tend to have a higher body mass index. “Consumption of food away from home has increased in frequency in the last few decades and is an important potential factor contributing to weight gain,” according to Nutrition Reviews. Some factors leading to this conclusion include larger portion sizes, higher consumption of soda and sweetened beverages, higher saturated, trans, and total fat, higher sodium, and other various additives. The mentality toward eating out is a contributing factor as well. Rarely do people consider meeting the fruit and vegetable quota at a fast food restaurant. Swinging by Jimmy John’s on your way home may seem like the ul-

timate answer, but spending money eating out can take a toll on your wallet. While it may be convenient, eating out is by far more expensive than cooking at home. In fact, a 2009 article from Mayo Clinic actually shows that a homemade burger is 4 cents cheaper per ounce than one from McDonald’s. Plus making the burger yourself ensures that you actually know the quality of its ingredients. Homemade
meals allow you to monitor what goes into your food, thus allowing you to make more nutritious decisions. For those of you who view eating out as an experience to try new cuisine, get creative in the kitchen by browsing a new food blog for an exotic recipe. Have fun perusing the grocery store looking for hidden ingredients or use it as a reason to hit up the Asian food market you usually pass by. You do not have to be a great cook
to make the switch from eating out to dining in. Start simple by getting ideas from the foods you have been eating. Love Taco John’s? Make tacos at home and switch it up by using black beans instead of meat. Still think you don’t have time to cook? Try setting aside a few hours on Sunday to prepare meals for the week or invest in a slow cooker. A little extra time can be manageable in the long run as you start to see how many calo-

School gains surplus from Liberty Bowl trip More tickets bought by ISU than intended
FOLLOW US ON TWITTER twitter.com/isdsports
By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com Iowa State pulled in a financial surplus from its trip to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., according to documents obtained via a Freedom of Information request by the Daily on Tuesday morning. The school came away with a $15,366 payday for its trip to the
Liberty Bowl — the third bowl appearance in four years for its football team — in December of 2012. That surplus, however, is much smaller than what the school made from its team’s trips to the Pinstripe Bowl ($53,523) in 2011 and the Insight Bowl ($158,500) in 2009. Ames’ closer proximity to Memphis compared to that of New York City contributed to the smaller allotment of funds that the Big 12 Conference granted to Iowa State. The document shows that Iowa State sold a total of 13,853 tickets for
the game — above the original 10,000 that the conference agreed to “eat up,” as Pollard put it. “The conference guaranteed to the bowl game that whoever played in it would sell 10,000 tickets,” said ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard. Equipment and sales, entertainment and promotion saw figures higher than that of the team’s Pinstripe Bowl trip. Iowa State fell to 1-2 all time in bowl games under coach Paul Rhoads with its 31-17 loss to Tulsa in the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31, 2012.
Ticket facts ■■ Records show that each ticket that was sold went for a $55 price, unlike the Pinstripe Bowl, where tickets were sold in eight different price increments ranging as low as $45 and as high as $350. ■■ Iowa State did not have to absorb any tickets since it sold 3,853 more than the conference originally agreed to pay the bowl for. ■■ The 13,853 tickets sold is the most of the three bowl games of the Paul Rhoads era.

Two ISU women earn All-America honors Another honor has been announced for ISU forwards Hallie Christofferson and Chelsea Poppens but this time, it’s on a national stage. The Associated Press announced Tuesday that Christofferson and Poppens were named to the honorable mention All-American team for their efforts this past season. Christofferson, a unanimous first team All-Big 12 selection this season, was named an All-American honorable mention, her first All-America honor. The ISU junior averaged 15.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. She led the Cyclones in shooting percentage from the field (51.6), 3-point percentage (40.1) and free throw percentage (86.2). Poppens, now a two-time All-American honorable mention, nearly averaged a doubledouble with 13.4 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. In her final season, she became just the 14th Big 12 women’s basketball player in history to score 1,000 points and grab 1,000 rebounds in her career. —Dylan Montz
Softball: Cyclones add two games, drop another

ISU club team ascends Ultimate Frisbee group earns success By Lauren.Hedrick @iowastatedaily.com
The ISU softball team (14-19, 0-3 Big 12) announced Tuesday it has added two more home games to this season’s schedule against Missouri-Kansas City. These two games will make up for the two which were lost due to a rainout against North Carolina and George Washington and will bring Iowa State back to this season’s original 56-game schedule. The Cyclones and Kangaroos last played in 2008 resulting in a 7-0 win for the Cyclones. Iowa State leads the all-time series with a 10-3 record spanning from 1997. The games will be played as a double header on April 17 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The game between the Cyclones and Panthers that was scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed. No new date has been scheduled yet. This is the second in-state game that has been postponed, with the first occurrence being a game at Drake. —Isaac Hunt
The phrase “diamond in the rough” might be an overused idiom. But for the ISU women’s Ultimate Frisbee club team, it can be considered the perfect description. The sport of Ultimate Frisbee is growing quickly and the ISU women’s club team, Woman Scorned, is ready to lead the way. Despite a somewhat difficult struggle in the endurance and conservation of Woman Scorned in the past, the team now has a full roster that has the right to call themselves champions after they took home first place for the second consecutive year last month at the Centex Ultimate tournament in Austin, Texas. “It feels really good,” said coach Lana Seiler. “I think it just shows that we’re an established program; it helped us to prove ourselves a bit more.” Senior captain Rebecca Miller said winning Centex will push the team to work harder. “We’re really happy to have won,” Miller said. “We want to use this to drive us to work harder throughout the rest of the season and that those wins aren’t the peak of the season.” The team has built a heavily suc-

cessful resume, which includes 14 recorded first-place finishes and 33 recorded top-five finishes in the past five years. Woman Scorned has also locked two top-10 finishes at nationals for the past two years. “In 2011, the team was excited about the finish, but when you looked at the results, we thought that we could be better,” said coach Kevin Seiler. With the next year’s qualification, the team had higher hopes but fell to 10th after being knocked out in the first elimination round. “Last year we had a lot higher hopes than 10th place, so it was disappointing,” Miller said. “We could have done better, but we were still proud of it.” To qualify for nationals, every Ultimate region’s top team receives an automatic bid to play, determined by previous tournament performances and the strength of the competition. However, each region also can win a strength bid depending on how high the team is ranked. The North Central region recently secured a fifth strength bid, so all five of the top ranked teams in the North Central region will go. This also marks the most bids that the region has ever had. After winning at Centex, Woman Scorned should have another toss for first at nationals. “It’s almost like we’re going into regionals expecting to make nationals,

and I think we know that we’re going to make it,” Kevin said. Senior Sarah Pesch said they are ready to prove that Woman Scorned deserves to be the top-ranked team. “We knew that we could probably make it to nationals even if we didn’t get the strength bid, but now we have a better opportunity,” Pesch said. “It’s just going to be a lot of hard work to prove that we deserve to be the No. 1 team in the region.” Senior captain Magon Liu said the team needs to keep working and earn success. “All of normal season is done; now
we are just working on getting ready, taking each tournament one at a time,” Liu said. “We’re not taking it for granted; we need to earn it and stay concentrated and motivated.” Not only has Women Scorned found team success, but individual success as well. Becca Miller, Magon Liu, Cami Nelson, and Sarah Pesch have recently qualified for the Under 23 World Championship Ultimate teams, locking four of only 32 positions available. “All four of those girls are natural
Cooper: from bench rider to All-Star Goalie’s season ends with ACHA All-Star Game By Clint.Cole @iowastatedaily.com The journey to the ACHA All-Star Game didn’t start on the ice; rather, it started on the bench and in the stands. Until Feb. 2, ISU goalie Matt Cooper had only played in three games for the Cyclones and was 2-0 with a shutout with one
game where he entered the game in relief and didn’t get a decision. On Feb. 1 in Oklahoma City, the Cyclones blew a 4-2 lead going into the third period against Central Oklahoma and lost the game 6-5. ISU goalie Scott Ismond started that game and Paul Karus came into the game in the third period after Ismond allowed three third-period goals. After the game that night, ISU assistant coach Kyle McDonald told Cooper that he was going to get his chance in the next game against Oklahoma.

Cyclones expect competition at tight end Others are prepared to expand their roles By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com

athletes, but they also work really hard at it,” Lana said. The Under 23 Championship is a world competition in July in which the United States puts together a national team and an under-23 national team. Hopeful athletes apply and try out to earn their spots. Liu said that making the team was surreal. “It was pretty hectic; it still is very surreal,” Liu said. “Four ladies tried out from Iowa State, and we still made it. Pretty cool: four for four.” Although ISU Ultimate has a very successful and talented team, both the coaches and players said that anyone is welcome at any time. “We welcome anybody that wants to give it a try and play,” Miller said. “We take it seriously, but first and foremost we have fun; we’re such a close-knit team and family.”
“He kind of just came up to the goalies, we always have a meeting for the next game and whatnot,” Cooper said. “He just goes straight out with it; he says, ‘I’m going to give you a shot, are you going to be ready?’ and I said, ‘Yes sir, I’m ready to play.’” Cooper said that was the first “top-tier team” that he got to play this season. “Getting the opportunity then and where the team was at in the season, I knew that if I excelled in that position I’d maybe be able to carry on through the rest of the season and get more playing time,” Cooper said. The Cyclones took the ice the next day and defeated the Sooners 4-1 in front of Cooper. He stopped 30 of 31 shots in the game. “Sometimes people will ask the question — not in his case — but in other cases, ‘Hey, maybe the guy just got lucky for one game,’” said ISU coach Al Murdoch. That proved to not be the
When tight end coach Bill Bleil runs individual drills with his players, they are truly individual. On the roster, the ISU football team has four tight ends, but only two that practiced Tuesday with Pierre Richardson and Ben Boesen, both of whom have yet to record a catch in an ISU uniform. “It’s a great group,” Bleil said. “Very competitive and it’s a great meeting room right now because E.J. is on the learning end of it, but he’s extremely talented, maybe as athletic as any tight end I’ve been around.” Ernst Brun has missed practice with a minor concussion, but should be back before Saturday’s scrimmage, said ISU coach Paul Rhoads.
case. The next weekend on Feb. 8, the Cyclones hosted Lindenwood, who they hadn’t beaten since 2008. Cooper did allow four goals on 24 shots against the Lions, but it proved to be enough for the 5-4 victory. The next night Cooper allowed only one goal on 31 shots in a 4-1 victory against the Lions, which completed the sweep. Cooper went on to help the Cyclones to the CSCHL tournament championship game and the third round of the ACHA tournament. He finished this season with a 9-1-1 record and .960 save percentage. Cooper spent the previous two seasons at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn., which participates at the NCAA Division III level. He didn’t play in any games while he was there before he made the transfer to Iowa State. Murdoch said Cooper was recommended to him by

Minnesota-Duluth assistant coach Christian Koelling. “When a great team like Minnesota-Duluth wins the national championship like they did two years ago, sometimes you have players that are absolutely excellent but they’re not good enough to move on, so he recommended Matt Cooper and we went with it,” Murdoch said. After last season, Cooper said he didn’t really have a plan, but one thing was certain. “I just knew I didn’t want to go back to Hamline because it was a small school and the hockey team wasn’t going in the right direction that I wanted it to,” said Cooper. Hamline won just one game this season. “I’m pretty glad with my decision, to say the least,” Cooper said. Before talking with coaches and a few friends that go to Iowa State, Cooper didn’t know anything about it, nor did he know anything about the ACHA. “It’s not very well adver-

The other one of two tight ends able to practice early in the spring with Iowa State is Boesen, a redshirt sophomore from Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines. Bleil called Boesen a high-energy guy who’s been great to have fill in with Brun and Bibbs banged up. Bleil said over the last few years his idea of the tight end has changed over time. Brun is only listed as 6-foot-3, 251 pounds: only a little bigger than some of Iowa State’s longer wide receivers. “At first when I came into coaching, I think everyone was looking for an extended offensive lineman,” Bleil said. “Now they’re looking for an extension of a wide receiver. We’re playing them unattached most of the time; they’ve got to be out there and play what a ‘Z’ receiver does for us all the time.” Bleil said.

>>WAHLS.p1 “First cousins can get married and in all states this marriage is still recognized, but in Iowa same-sex marriage is legal but not recognized in all states,” Wahls said. “It is a double standard for same-sex marriage.” At the age of 19, Wahls addressed the Iowa House Judiciary Committee. “They [the Iowa House Judiciary Committee] forced
a public hearing on same-sex marriage and asked the public to speak up at the hearing for how this bill would affect our lives,” Wahls said. Wahls wrote a speech, which went viral by Feb. 2, 2011. That same day Wahls was called to be on the CBS early show, NBSC, and the Ellen Degeneres Show. Wahls was also offered a speaking agent and a book agent. His book is titled, “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and

If it’s something dealing with AIDS, for example, the best thing we can do is raise awareness,” Avant said. On a more active level, Avant mentioned a possible “legislative day of action where we all go to the capitol to talk to legislators and try to lobby them to a course of action or enlist something to get on the ballot and try to persuade people to vote for that initiative.” Outside of raising awareness and action to pertinent issues, the ISU student chapter also lends itself to students seeking leadership opportunities. “If you’re prepared to be in a leadership role and you want to take action, right now is the best time to get involved because we’re still evolving as an organization,” said Tiara Mays, vice president for the organization and senior in psychology and sociology.

What Makes a Family.” The general question Wahls gets from people is, “Who taught you how to be a man?” To which Wahls responds with, “Besides Mulan?” “Nobody learns how to be a man or an adult by one single person; there were other men in my life: my granddads, Eagle scouts, uncles, male teachers. There was not positive male role model shortage in my life,” Wahls said. Wahls said that there were
Mays said that half of the executive board is leaving. Due to the pending vacancy of several positions, students are encouraged to apply for leadership roles as soon as possible. “The elections [for executive board positions] will be the week before Dead Week, and every position is open to run for, with the exception of president. We’ll need a secretary, treasurer, vice president, junior vice president,” said Christine DeCoudreaux, secretary for the organization and senior in journalism and mass communication at Iowa State. Whether or not a leadership role is a student’s aspiration, Avant insisted that students have opportunities to get involved on either smaller or larger scales. “Something [to be offered] is tutoring students, something simple as that. We also do leadership training. There are so many opportunities and support systems, so not only do you get to help others, but you get to help yourself in the process,” Avant said.

>>GSB.p1 tweeting or posting campaignrelated content on Facebook, there would be no way to control when they were retweeted on Twitter or shared on Facebook. Steffen Schmidt, university professor of political science, thinks many campaign rules should be eliminated. “Any law that seriously reduces voting, which for GSB is already shockingly low, is a danger to democracy and to encouraging student participation in the process,” Schmidt said. “If I could wave a wand I would remove almost all ISU GSB election restrictions. After all, the goal should be to unleash the creativity and energy of students running for office and exciting as many students to participate as we

May 23 is when the Boy Scouts of America will vote in Texas on whether or not homosexual boys are to be allowed into Boy Scouts.

Wahls began a new Boy Scout organization in May 2012 called Scouts for Equality. In January 2013, the Boy Scouts of America said they would consider letting homosexual boys into boy scouts. “The place where I felt most comfortable about let-

can get.” Hughes and runningmate Hillary Kletscher were fined for violating a rule concerning campaign emails during this year’s election. The rule states that no email can be sent out on behalf of a candidate within 24 hours of the polls opening and while the polls are open. The Saturday before the election, Kletscher sent an email to 30 greek chapter presidents and asked that they send it along to their members. Kletscher forgot to include the rule disallowing the email to be forwarded within 24 hours of the polls opening. One of the rules Kletscher did remember to include was once the email was forwarded, Guenther had to be courtesy copied. Two of the presidents did as instructed, and Guenther was courtesy copied. However, both of those emails
were sent out past the deadline, which resulted in the fine. “For years I have said that GSB voting rules are stupid. They prevent aggressive campaigning. No wonder almost every election, there are violations,” Schmidt said. “If we want students running for office, we need to throw out all the foolish restrictions — even national elections for president of the [United States] do not fine candidates for sending out campaign emails on election day.” Guenther will meet with his election commission to decide what to do about the current rules and what changes to make. Everyone involved in the process agrees that voter turnout needs to be higher. Hughes will be inaugurated Monday, and the new GSB Senate will be seated April 10.
Key GSB campaign rules ■■ Campaigning cannot start until a certain date; this year there was an event to announce the beginning of the presidential and Senate races. ■■ No emails can be sent from the candidates or on behalf of the candidates 24 hours before voting begins, or while the polls are open. ■■ No active campaigning can be done while the polls are open. ■■ No candidates may campaign during classes. ■■ Candidates are free to use social media websites throughout the campaign.
What is the Future of Energy? Documentary & Discussion
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 7pm
Great Hall Memorial Union
Energy is one of the most important issues of our time. Our transportation, global commerce, food and water, medicine, communications and computing all depend on it. The film Switch explores the way we use energy, from coal to solar, oil to biofuels. Writer and producer Scott Tinker, a geologist, talks to the people driving energy research and production today, including national and international government officials, industry leaders and academics. The film removes politics from the discussion, makes the technical accessible and documents our likely path of transition to new energy sources. A discussion will immediately follow the 98-min film.
FRIDAY, April 5
