Book store buyback will start Tuesday Tuesday marks the beginning of textbook buyback at the University Book Store. Students can sell books back to the book store throughout the year; however, students who wait until textbook buyback are selling books to the bookstore to go back into their inventory rather than having it passed on to another used book seller. In order to sell back your textbooks, you must bring your student identification, and the books must be in usable condition. Buyback operates on a firstcome-first-serve basis, and the listed price is not the guaranteed sellback price.

After over 40 years at Iowa State, Yong Chin Pak, known as Grandmaster Pak, will be retiring this May. Pak grew up in Korea as the youngest child of eight, and for a while, his childhood consisted of the Korean War. In 6th grade, Pak lost both of his parents within three months of each other and he became very ill and weak, as did much of his family. He knew he needed to do something about his health in order to get stronger and essentially stay alive. Pak started judo, taekwondo and karate in the seventh grade with the support of his third-oldest sister, who practically raised him after his par-

ents’ death. Eventually, Pak went to college at the Yong In Un, formerly known as the Korean Judo College. From there he graduated with a bachelors degree of science in physical education, was elected student government president and continued his training with judo, taekwondo and karate. The next chapter of Pak’s life consisted of serving as the Korean Secret Service’s self-defense instructor. With an extensive background in martial arts, Pak then decided to train for the Olympics. He made the top four in the Olympic trials for his team and he only had one more round to go to see if he would be participating in the Olympics when he received an opportunity to travel to the United States. “As a young boy, I had always seen Americans in Korea who were trying to bring us food and things to help our economy. I always asked, ‘Mommy, mommy, who are those people and where do they come from?’
ISU will begin installing new phone system Update will save money, provide improvements By Brian.Day @iowastatedaily.com This summer, Iowa State will be replacing its old telephone system with “the cloud.” The switch will be made between May 1 and July 1, just in time for the expiration of the current system on July 1. Information Technology Services has been looking into a system to replace the current one for about a year, since the old system is expiring. The initial cost to replace the telephones is estimated at about $1.5 million with an added $50,000 to connect the phones to Ames-area phone companies. However, Iowa State is expected to save about $600,000 per year after making the switch. Almost every campus telephone is going to be replaced, including the phones that are in dorm
lobbies and in dens. This comes to about 8,000 phones. 1,000 phones will be replaced per week for eight weeks beginning on May 1. “Beginning in May, users will begin to see new telephone sets being deployed on campus, and the goal is to have everyone moved to the new system by July 1,” said Jen Lohrbach, senior systems analyst for IT Services and a contributor in the transition project. The cloud is traditionally thought of as a virtual space where you can back up music, movies and other important files without the fear of losing them. Recently, the cloud has been making a transition into the telecommunications field. A cloud-based phone system is a relatively costeffective system and is an up-and-coming trend with a lot of companies and businesses. “Cloud-based communication is [a] costeffective alternative to traditional voice phone

Engineering students design global projects Students’ projects attempt to solve industrial problems By Mike.Randleman @iowastatedaily.com An anti-mosquito water agitator, a paddle wheel generator and a high leverage wheelchair will be among the more than 70 projects on display at the Spring Mechanical Engineering Design Expo. The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. at the Howe Hall atrium on Tuesday. “ME 415 is entirely sponsored projects from Iowa companies, from connections with the Center for Industrial Research and Service, or internal projects that are associated with certain clubs with outside funding,” said William Ross Morrow, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and co-creator of the exposition. “Engineers, mechanical engineers in partic-
ular, go out into industry and often have to work with a variety of different engineers and people in all sorts of disciplines. Companies are interested in hiring people that have that experience already,” Morrow said. Nearly half of the projects found at the exposition will come from Mechanical Engineering 270, a sophomore-oriented course. The designated theme that the students in the class were given was to create a design for developing regions around the globe. “We call the project design a microeconomy kit. That’s something that should not only be a product or service or system that helps improve the quality of life for a region, but also creates economic activity,” said Morrow. One project is an anti-mosquito water agitator, which will aim to help regions of Africa suffering from widespread cases of malaria. The agitator “aerates water and agitates it

>>GRANDMASTER.p1 I guess you could say I always had an interest in America and Americans. I had a dream to travel to the U.S. to see for myself,” Pak said, “So one day, I went to the embassy and I asked them how I could get to the United States. They gave me some forms; I filled them out and with my knowledge and success with martial arts, I was approved to go to the U.S. just five months before the Olympics.” Pak knew this was a dream he had always had and he wasn’t sure if he would ever get the chance again. “So I took the opportunity and I didn’t look back,” Pak said. When Pak arrived in the United States, he first settled in Hawaii where after only two or three weeks, he secured a job teaching martial arts at a high school. After six to eight weeks of teaching there, he already received another offer that moved him to Omaha, Neb. where he taught at the St. Mary College for about a year. It wasn’t until 1973 that a position became available at Iowa State. Pak said he knew that Iowa State had one of the best wrestling programs at the time and had a strong base as a college as well. Pak said the first two years were rough and slow, but by 1975 the ISU program started to grow. This job ended up leading to a 40-year home and career for Pak. Since Pak has been on Iowa State’s campus, he has taught more than 35,000 students from Iowa State alone.

Iowa State will be contracting with Internet2, and Aastra will be the service provider for Iowa State’s cloud, which will digitally store all ISU phone data.

“I have gotten many awards and have heard a lot of ‘thank yous,’ but to me, it’s just my job,” Pak said. “I am doing what I love to do, hoping that I can teach others to love it as much as I do.” Pak said when one becomes part of the team at Iowa State, everyone else becomes family. Timothy Wiegand, former ISU student and martial arts team member, is an example of this kind of family and the influence Grandmaster Pak had and still has on students’ lives. In 1994, Wiegand was diagnosed with cancer. When he went to the health center they found a mass behind his heart and he had to undergo chemotherapy. Even while going through chemotherapy, he still finished his classes, trained and fought at the team trials. “I was still a member of the team, of the family,” Weigand said, “With the support I got from the group and Grandmaster Pak, I was able to push forward and fight two battles at once.” Weigand said that Pak could have been making a lot of money from the knowledge he holds about martial arts. Pak is one of only 150 people in the United States who holds as high of a ranking as he does. “My dream after coming to America was just to see students turn out well, get good grades and hopefully be professionally successful,” Pak said, “If all this life is about is money, then we are in a living hell. Life is about much more: It’s about spending time with family and really knowing what is important.” “Iowa State University and the Ames community have given me this opportunity and made this part of my life possible so I want to say thank you,” Pak said.

Another group made adjustments to the Leveraged Freedom Chair, a wheelchair created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology students designed to handle different terrains. “With our design, what we wanted to do was try to reduce the weight of the chair. The first thing we came up with was we wanted to make as much of it the same as possible out of either PVC pipe or just bike shafting parts,” Kraft said. The projects will mainly feature aspects of aerospace, electrical and mechanical engineering.

ISU students do not need fancy housing Since the Board of Regents approved a proposal by Iowa State’s Department of Residence to lease off-campus housing for about 500 students last week, it is pretty clear that we can expect to see a record number of students at Iowa State in August. Since Iowa State has enrolled many more new students this year (by March 1, more than 5,200 new students for fall 2013) than last year (March 1, 2012, more than 4,400 for fall 2012), it is clear that campus will be laboring under the footfalls of many people during the annual freshman orientation. Like other students who will be on campus for conferences and classes during the summer, those students have to live somewhere. Currently, Maple, Willow and Larch Halls are slated to serve as the temporary addresses of orientees and their families. Those buildings, which together can accommodate 1,584 students, highlight an important part of college life that increasing enrollment directly involves. Older students might remember that Eaton and Martin Halls, the comparatively posh, suite-style residence halls on the west end of campus, used to host prospective students and their families during orientation. In brief, Eaton and Martin seemed to represent a general trend among colleges and universities to provide increasingly upscale residence and dining services as they competed with one another as never before and attempted to induce prospective students to buy their product — an “education” — at a high price for a number of years. As Iowa State has looked to build new apartments at Frederiksen Court and leasing other ones from around Ames, it seems like that mode of thinking is still dominant over a preference for basic dormitories akin to Friley Hall or the commonly maligned Helser Hall. (In all honesty, Helser wouldn’t be so bad if it had air conditioning.) A dorm room really shouldn’t be that important for a college student, however. In addition to learning life skills that will allow us to obtain reasonably profitable jobs or careers, spending four (or, let’s face it, five or six) years at a college or university is supposed to be a time of constant selfdiscovery. Participating in unheardof clubs, going to classes that teach unencountered perspectives, trying to resolve previously uncontemplated academic problems — all these components of college life require spending time away from one’s bedroom. Indeed, there is something to be said for going to college far away from home and being unable to take one’s laundry back to Mom and one’s car back to Dad. Necessity is the mother of invention and being thrust out of the proverbial nest into a new, diverse environment requires us to branch out and put down our own roots. The benefit of having a place of residence that’s hardly bigger than a closet is, first, in its proximity to that new environment and, second, in the necessity of becoming something of a minimalist. In distilling our lives down to the bare necessities, we can more easily find out who we are. In the end, dorms don’t need to be luxuriant. As many of us probably will discover this week as we cram for finals, if the university is open at night (like the library is until 2 a.m.), we’ll go there instead of remain at “home.”

Why do we like false politeness?
n article the other day in the Huffington Post, “On The Fly: Are You Flirting Or Just Being Polite?,” got my attention. It made me wonder about people’s current interpretations concerning politeness. As such, cue the music for an article in the rapacious vein of Bill Hicks’ “Rant in E-Minor”: I have to wonder if “being polite” means the same thing it did 30, 40 or 50 years ago. Think about what “polite” means to you. For some, it means opening doors and pulling out chairs for women, helping old ladies across the street, saying “please” and “thank you” after everything and even avoiding discussion of unsettling topics or using “lewd” language. What is still expected of politeness today? At Hy-Vee, you are offered a “helpful smile in every aisle.” Does anyone honestly believe all the employees are offering a genuine smile? It is a business plan to offer a service that appears to be more helpful and respectful than other businesses so as to create a degree of loyalty to the establishment. The employees can be chastised for not offering to help a customer. The same, “how can I help you” is a regular part of restaurants and essentially all large retail businesses. But does anyone think most of those employees that aren’t on commissions or bonuses/perks for high sales really care if you make a purchase or not? We know it is all a dog and pony show — and if you didn’t, my apologies for the sudden revelation. And no, that wasn’t a genuine apology. I was just “being polite.” I wonder if all politeness is just a way to
By Gabriel.Stoffa @iowastatedaily.com delude ourselves. We are a culture that appears to enjoy being duped, to a degree. Folks go to strip clubs and enjoy not only the enticement of the naked human form, but also the fake flirtations utilized by the dancers to make more money. Many of us were scolded in childhood and into adolescence when we forgot to thank some relative after they gave us a gift that we found to be atrocious — think along the lines of clothing that you wouldn’t be caught dead in or something that made no sense like a toy for a child 10 years younger than you. Sure, it is “the thought that counts,” to some degree, but why is it more important to pretend so someone else can think they did well and likely make the same mistake again? Nowadays, that politeness has faded a lot. So much so that when folks are “polite,” people feel the need to comment on it and to point out the act because it is no longer the norm. So again, is it just that people like “fake” and are unwilling to admit it? People complain about fake actions all the time, yet people desire “fake” reactions every day. Hypocrisy anyone, or merely a matter of degrees? Do you really care that someone is pregnant
or engaged when it appears on Facebook? If you were busy with your life and saw in public one of those “friends” you rarely communicate with, would you hold a door open for them or go on about your day as if they weren’t there? And yes, making people happy is a good thing overall. So why not do that all the time? Why not make it a point to regularly compliment or “like” things or open doors for others all the time. Well, people don’t generally do that because people don’t necessarily care about others unless it could have a discernible effect on themselves. Think of the last time a complete stranger held the door open for you. Now think about the odds that that person found you attractive and did so hoping it would somehow entice you to strike up a conversation, or, at the very least give them a good look at your tush. It isn’t always a given, but it is in a fair likelihood. Maybe I’m a bit of a cynic, or maybe I prefer people to open their eyes and realize the layers of the world. I’ll leave you with something to consider from the movie “The Matrix” that covers my pondering: “Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize? [Takes a bite of steak] Ignorance is bliss.”

Do not assume all immigrants are criminals Boston Marathon tragedy brings up discussion of reform
he tragic explosion occurring April 15 in Boston killed 3 and injured 176. The main suspects are two brothers from the Russian Republic of Chechnya. These men were 9 and 16 years old when they came to the United States with their father who was granted asylum because of conflicts in their homeland. Congratulations to Homeland Security for finding the suspects so quickly, but the United States has its work cut out for it. This tragedy will also stir up White House drama. Congress has been crafting an immigration reform bill, and this terrorist attack allegedly committed by immigrants will not ease tension in the immigration debate. Many Republicans in Congress are skeptical of the reform bill, which is already aiming at tightening down on border security. Just because someone is not born in the United States does not mean they are more likely to be a criminal or terrorist. Although some countries are considered to be more violent than others, that does not mean that the people coming here General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students
By Connor.Clarke @iowastatedaily.com are criminals. We have strong enough border security and restrictions on immigration already. Our problem does not lie outside our borders, but within them. In the past 12 months, we have seen several massacres, all done by U.S. citizens born and raised. On July 20, 2012, Aurora, Colo. was shocked by a movie theater shooting; on December 11, 2012, in Portland, Ore., Jacob Tyler Roberts shot two and wounded one before taking his own life; then the tragic Sandy Hook shooting on December 14, 2012, was committed by U.S.born Adam Lanza. The list goes on. The point is that there have been countless acts of violence committed in the United States not only in the past 12 months, but since the turn of the millenium as well. These acts of violence are prominently committed by U.S.-born citizens. Though most acts of terrorism are committed by U.S.-born citizens, crime rates among illegal immigrants tend to be high. In 2009, non-U.S.-born citizens made up 57 percent of the 76 fugitives on the FBI’s most wanted list. This is a startlingly high number considering the illegal immigrant population is only about 9 percent of the U.S.

population. My observations and research have caused me to change stance on immigration reform. Although I am still in favor of it, I am no longer in favor of completely open borders. I believe the United States should allow more immigrants to come into the country because the majority of immigrants are hard-working and humble. I worked with a couple of illegal immigrants from Mexico when I was 16 years old. These workers became my friends, and they were better than any of the other men I ever worked with in construction. They were more efficient, faster and more accurate than the average worker. When I went to work with them again, they had been deported, and one was separated from his family because his wife was a U.S. citizen but he was not. We lose valuable citizens by being so strict on immigration. I would propose legislation that is strict on background checks, but allows for immigrants to come into the country and attain citizenship much more easily. Currently, it is nearly impossible to get citizenship, and even Marco Rubio, one of the members of the Gang of Eight who is writing this new reform bill, said the “pathway to citizenship” would actually be more expensive for undocu$62, annually, for the general public.

mented immigrants currently living in the United States, and it would be faster and cheaper for them to go home and come back filing as a new immigrant. For this reason, the Gang of Eight needs to persuade Congress that allowing citizenship for these immigrants would not only be good for the immigrants as a humanitarians argument, but economically speaking; it would only boost the economy. In conclusion, people will try to use the Boston Marathon terrorist attack as an argument against immigration reform, claiming that if the United States would have been more strict about immigration then these Chechen men would have never even been here to set the bombs. True, but how can we predict who will be terrorists and who will not? This is for immigrants and U.S.-born citizens. The new immigration bill will greatly improve border security by placing a double-layer fence and aerial drones. The bill still needs to allow a better path to citizenship for current residents who are non-citizens and allow for more immigrants to enter the country.

Marketing ideas presented Demonstrations exhibited to three Iowa companies By Zoe.Woods @iowastatedaily.com Wei Zhang, an assistant professor in marketing, provided the opportunity for his students to present marketing ideas to three top-named companies in Iowa. Each of his three classes was divided into ten teams to do a project with the final intent of presenting to company executives. “I designed it in a way so it was like an inclass competition. I only selected the top three teams, and I called them the finalist teams. So, the three teams get selected to present to a company executive,” Zhang said. Principal Financial and Casey’s General Store were the companies that the finalist teams presented to. On April 16, presentations were given by two sections of Zhang’s classes. The manager of Casey’s General Store, headquartered in Ankeny, arrived in the afternoon to hear three presentations. They then picked the winner of the three presentations.
In the evening of the same day, the manager of Principal Financial came and listened to three, different presentations. They then picked a winner from the three finalists. The idea of involving corporate businesses in the project started last fall. “In term of our students, we want them to learn some real world business knowledge,” Zhang said. “I was thinking, why don’t we talk to the local companies so that they come in and bring what they are working on right now, and tell our students this the problem we are facing.” Throughout the whole project that started at the beginning of the semester, Zhang advised the students on how to approach the presentations. “I will be their advisor throughout the semester to help them, [the students], with the projects. The students will then report back to the company executive and then say, these are our findings,” Zhang said. There are many benefits to the partnership that was developed for both the company as well as the students. “In my mind, I thought there were a couple of benefits. One is that the companies… want to contribute to the community. So, through this interaction, they really contribute back to our student body,” Zhang said.

“In a sense that they bring a real world experience, a real word insight, and our students will learn from that.” The winners of the finalist teams put great effort into the projects that were presented to both Principal Financial and Casey’s General Store. “The most difficult part of the project was to come up with ideas that Principal hadn’t thought of yet [and] would still be able to imple-
ment easily,” said Kellie Morrissey, senior in management. The final presentation given on site was a great learning experience for all team members. “It was really exciting to be selected to visit Principal Financial in Des Moines. It was a little nerve-racking to present to a room of employees that ranged from team members, retirement service individuals to their top executives,” Morrissey said. Amandine Habben, senior in marketing, really liked the project. It was very useful for her and will be even more useful in the future. “This project was unique in a way because I felt like I was a consultant that Casey’s had hired. We were presented with a problem and needed to find a solution,” Habben said. “It was nice to finally apply all our knowledge obtained over the last four years and use it to solve a real world problem for a company that makes real world business decisions.” Habben wants this project to continue. “I think this is a great model for a marketing capstone class. We, as marketing students, have sat in class for the last two years hearing about all these things companies do, and now, we had the opportunity to do that for a legitimate company.”
Students showcase business proposals Entrepreneurial event to be hosted Thursday By Justin.Senecaut @iowastatedaily.com This week, students in apparel educational studies and hospitality management (AESHM) 474 through 574 will be presenting their innovative business proposals and small business consulting/makeover project recommendations. Linda Niehm, associate professor of apparel, events and hospitality management as well as head of the showcase, said, “This is our tenth year doing the Entrepreneurship Showcase.” The Entrepreneurship Showcase
is from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday. “There are over 100 students that are taking these two classes and are showcasing their ideas to businesses,” Niehm said. Students don’t just propose business ideas. They also help consult or makeover a business. “Students can work as an individual or with a partner. Consulting teams work in groups of four to six students,” Niehm said. Niehm also stated that Worldly Goods, Tangerine Zebra, Ames Main Street Cultural Office, and Kosama are the business that the consulting teams will help. Andrea Gronau, manager of Worldly Goods, said, “students help remodel the store, and they did a fantastic job.” Worldly Goods is a fair-trade, non-
Showcase event When: Thursday What: Students in AESHM 474 through 574 present their business proposals and small consulting/makeover project recommendations. Where: TheLeBaron lounge and auditorium Time: 6 - 9 p.m. profit store. “Students that didn’t help with remodeling will be presenting their
ideas for businesses Thursday night. Students or partners will have to pitch their ideas in three to five minutes,” Niehm said. Niehm also said that the students will propose ideas to help develop a brand identity. For students to come up with a decent business proposal, they work on this project all semester long. “Students won’t be perfect, but they take workshops in class all semester long to improve on making a business proposal that will help the businesses,” Niehm said. At the same time as the Entrepreneurship Showcase, a business proposal contest will be going on from 6 to 8 p.m. According to the ISU events page, any human sciences student can pitch a business idea. Niehm said that this business
pitch is like the television show Shark Tank in the aspect that the students will come up with business ideas and pitch them to judges. This type of showcases and events is only a part of what the college does to support the students. Taking AESHM 474 through 574 are just steps that students can take to improve on businesses after their college. “When students take these types of classes and do these types of presentations, the students gain realworld experiences that they can use after college,” Niehm said. Ten years ago, this started out as a class project, and now, 10 years later, it is a part of the College of Human Sciences that helps students get the experience they need for their futures.

Pinkerton factor in ISU success Hitting, fielding coach pushes players to hone their skills By Isaac.Hunt @iowastatedaily.com

Saina earns third-fastest 10K time, national feat Senior Betsy Saina posted the third-fastest collegiate time in the 10,000-meter race at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., on Sunday. Saina took first in the event with her mark of 31:37.22, beating out both collegiate and professional competitors. One notable competitor she beat was Nike’s Lisa Uhl, who won four national titles as a Cyclone. Uhl finished 15th with 32:31.98. Teammate Meghan Nelson finished 17th in the event with a time of 33:05.71. Because of her feat, Saina was named the National Athlete of the Week for Division I women. —Daily staff
ISU earns 4th-straight berth to Regionals
The ISU softball team is on pace for a recordsetting marks, currently holding a .289 batting average, .431 slugging percentage and has already passed the school record in RBIs with 239. One man, assistant coach Jamie Pinkerton, is behind the recently successful offense of the Cyclones. “I think he is such a great coach,” said ISU coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler. “The years of experience he brings, I think he is great to have on staff. He is a good hitting coach and defensive coach.” Pinkerton has also helped Iowa State reach school records in fielding percentages with .963. Although he has coached with players on the U.S. National Team and twice has taken his old team, Arkansas, to the postseason, Pinkerton has settled in Ames as the team’s hitting and infield defensive coach. With more than 20 years of experience, he has developed coaching habits that bring out the best in his players. “I’m not going to recruit somebody, bring them in, tear them down, and make them into [something else],” Pinkerton said. “We watch a lot of film. I pay attention to what they are doing, when they are hitting well and when they struggle. Techniquewise, I work with what they are good at.”

ISU sweeps UMKC doubleheader Cappaert homers twice, Cyclones pull for two victories
For the fourth-straight year, the ISU women’s golf team will compete at the NCAA Regionals, which was announced Monday night. The Cyclones, who are emerging from a third-place finish at the Big 12 Championships, will compete the the Central Regional in Norman, Okla. This will be Iowa State’s eighth NCAA Regional berth overall, having also qualified for four consecutive years from 1993-1996. But Iowa State is shooting for something bigger: its first NCAA Championship berth in school history. The Cyclones’ highest finish at an NCAA Regional was 10th place, which they achieved in both 2010 and 2011. Both those times, they fell five shots shy of advancing to the NCAA Championship.

Finally getting a day of spring weather in Ames, the ISU softball team took advantage of it on Monday. Iowa State (21-29, 4-11 Big 12) got two wins against Missouri-Kansas City in an afternoon doubleheader by scores of 10-4 and 7-4. In the first game, the teams would see the lead change go back and forth between five times. Heading into the bottom of the sixth inning, the score was knotted at four runs apiece. The Cyclones exploded for six runs in the inning, including a grand slam from shortstop Lexi Slater, a
sacrifice RBI from Erica Miller and a home run from Aly Cappaert. The freshman from Ankeny, Iowa, was not done just yet. With the Cyclones up 2-1 in the third inning, Cappaert unleashed her second home run of the day in the bottom of the fifth inning in game two, increasing the lead for Iowa State. “I thought I saw the pitches really well today,” Cappaert said. “I have been working on my swing mechanics a lot this past week in practice, and it paid off today. I wasn’t jumping too much, and it felt good off the bat.” UMKC tied the game back up at four runs a piece, just like the first game, in the sixth inning on a triple by outfielder Bri Wyatt, who crossed home plate on the same play on a throwing error by Brittany Gomez. The Cyclones had another answer
Fernandez selected to prestigious Palmer Cup By Alex.Gookin @iowastatedaily.com As Scott Fernandez and the rest of the men’s golf team prepared to start their first round at the Big 12 Championships, the Golf Channel was announcing the 2013 Palmer Cup selections. But it was a game day and the Cyclones were hopping in the van to play the biggest meet of the year with no time for TV. Fernandez was hoping for another top finish in what has become one of the best individual golf seasons in team history. All that became a little sweeter as coach Andrew Tank checked Twitter before the meet. There, he saw Fernandez’s name among 10 collegiate players from Europe selected to the Palmer Cup on June 7-9 in Wilmington, Del. “We had a pretty good idea that he was going to be in because he was doing so well in the [Palmer Cup] rankings,” Tank said. “But it was awesome to come across that on Twitter.” The selection may not have come as too much of a surprise, but the Palmer Cup is about as prestigious as collegiate events get, featuring former U.S. Open champions Lucas Glover and Graeme McDowell among many other current professional golfers. The Palmer Cup, named after golfing great Arnold Palmer, began in 1997 as an international collegiate golf event between the United States and Europe. Traditionally, eight collegiate players from each country play against each other in a Ryder Cup-style format. Starting this year, 10 players were selected to each team. Fernandez, who hails from Spain, was selected second to the European team based on rankings. He trailed only Texas Christian University’s Julien Brun (France), who finished tied for seventh with Fernandez at the Big 12 Championships.
Although Fernandez was in comfortable position to get picked for the Palmer Cup, there was no lack of excitement at the announcement . “Scott was pumped,” Tank said. “I knew he wanted to play; I knew he was excited, but to see his reaction when I said, ‘Hey, Scott, they picked the team; you’re on it,’ he gave a fist pump in the van.” Fernandez is the first ISU player to be selected to the Palmer Cup in its 16-year history. Fernandez is also preparing for the NCAA Regionals. He will find out where he will be playing when selections are made May 6. This will be the first time Fernandez will represent Iowa State without his team. “It’s a little upsetting just going by myself,” Fernandez said. “It would have been nice to go as a team, but I’ll try to do my best to get our university up on the leader board.” If Fernandez does well at the NCAAs and makes it past regionals, he plans on staying in the United States for the Palmer Cup in June. The Palmer Cup selection was made on the heels of a record-setting season at Iowa State. Barring a spectacular collapse at the NCAA Regionals, Fernandez will own the school’s single-season stroke average record. Fernandez recorded seven top-10 finishes in eight meets this season. He took medalist honors at the Furman Invitational for the second first-place finish of his career. Fernandez will likely be a leader next year on a team that will not lose anyone to graduation. The opportunity to play for Europe in the Palmer Cup is another accolade Fernandez will put on his resume heading into his junior year. “I’m happy to put my name up there with other players that have played it,” Fernandez said of the Palmer Cup. “It’s just really satisfying to see the results coming out of the hard work this year.”

>>PINKERTON.p5 Erica Miller, the team’s current leader in RBIs and batting average, said she and Pinkerton see eye-to-eye on a lot of batting techniques. Pinkerton’s coaching has helped refine the little things. “He looks at a lot of video with me. So, he is able to pick up on whatever I am doing wrong,” Miller said. “From the slightest hip turn to where your hand position is, he is really good at analyzing your swing and helping you when you are struggling.” Because of a previous friendship with Gemeinhardt-Cesler and family in Minneapolis, Iowa State was able to bring in Pinkerton to Ames soon after he left his post as head coach at Arkansas. Pinkerton and GemeinhardtCesler’s relationship has since blossomed into a coaching duo that allows both to use their strengths. “It’s a lot easier for us to play good

cop, bad cop,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. “He tends to be a little bit more quickfused than I am, but I think that’s good because I think there is a certain group of people that respond to that. “There are a lot of different ways people can be coached, and it’s a good balance. He complements me very well.” Although he may be harder on the players, Pinkerton feels that he has a good relationship with his team, and he has grown as a coach. “Early on when I was younger, I was hard-core,” Pinkerton said. “I got after them a little bit more. I wouldn’t say I was a yeller, but I got after the players. I think as I have gotten older and more experienced, I have become more of a players’ coach. “I get after them when I have to, but I sit back and let them play. When I have to push, I push. When I don’t need to push, I just let them play, for lack of better terms. I just go in the moment.”
>>UMKC.p5 in the bottom of the sixth inning, much like game one on offense. With the bases loaded, Lexi Slater came up big again with a base-clearing double to plate three runs for the Cyclones and giving the team the clinching 7-4 lead. Taylor Smith threw a complete game for the Cyclones in the second game. “I thought both Taylor and Tori did a good job in getting ahead in the counts today,” said ISU coach Stacy GemeinhardtCesler. “We did not allow as many walks as usual today, which helped our defense out a lot without having to worry about base runners.” The two wins got the team back on track after being swept by top-ranked Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., from Friday to Saturday. The Cyclones’ next game will be Wednesday against in-state rival Iowa in Iowa City.

Fun Facts A yellow baseball (thought to be more visible to batters, fielders, and spectators) was tested in New York City at 1938 college game between Fordham and Columbia. The highest score in a college football game was 222-0. It was Georgia Tech against Cumberland College, 1916. Ga. Tech’s coach was John Heisman, whom the Heisman trophy is named after. In 1956, East Germany decided to honor the death of native composer Robert Schumann by featuring him on a stamp. The design included a commemorative portrait of the artist against the backdrop of one of his musical scores. Unfortunately, the musical manuscript they used was that of fellow composer Franz Schubert. The metal band that joins the eraser to a pencil is a called a “ferrule.” It is also the same name of the metal band at the end of a cane. Humans can lose up to 30% of their total blood volume before going into shock. “Salmonella” gets its name from Daniel Elmer Salmon, a veterinary pathologist who ran a USDA microorganism research program in the 1800s. You probably know a couch potato, but may not know that the term is the legal property of Robert Armstrong, who trademarked it in 1976.

STEPPING INTO ADULTHOOD Proper attire marks next move forward in life By Ian Laughead ISD Style Writer It’s that time of year again where funny hats and flowing black robes become de rigueur — graduation. Walking across that stage and accepting a diploma may be the end goal for many college students, but what a shame it is that those memories have to be cloaked in that muumuu tent that is the graduation gown. No one looks objectively good in the gowns, but there are a few things to keep in mind to keep yourself looking as sharp as that new degree will make you feel. Gentlemen dressing for their ceremony should consider going for the traditional well-fitted shirt and tie under their gown. A pressed collar and a simple, solid tie will look
dapper over the collar and paired with slim or skinny trousers — the look is an easy crowd pleaser. As usual, however, the ladies have a few more options, but also a few more restrictions to follow. Graduation day calls for an easy, spring day dress, but because of outerwear considerations (i.e. that parachute we mentioned earlier) it shouldn’t be too poufy. A body-skimming, waist-defining look might be the best complement to your gown. We’ve seen the hems go from mini-skirt high to maxi-skirt low to mulletdress high-low in the last four years, but for the commencement ceremony, the best bet is to stick to something just below the knee. Any higher and you risk looking a bit like an underclassman, and any lower than your gown’s hem, and it ruins that classic look your mom will want to save for your scrapbook.
