Lecture: Invisible Children founder speaks on World Affairs By Rachel Sinn Daily staff writer Invisible Children co-founder Bobby Bailey will speak Monday at 8 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union. Bailey’s lecture is hosted by the ISUganda group as apart of the Iowa State’s World Affair series. Baily and two other friends learned of the violence throughout Uganda during a trip to Africa. Upon returning, Bailey and his team created a documentary titled “Invisible Children: Rough Cut” and founded the Invisible Children as a non-profit organization. Bailey is a co-founder of the Global Poverty Project, which has the vision of a world without extreme poverty within a generation.
Set-aside program gives financial aid for others
By Morgan.Fleener @iowastatedaily.com Iowa universities are requiring students to pay an average of 22 percent of their tuition to help provide financial aid that the universities can use to help attract prospective
students Under this policy, the universities in Iowa have set aside a portion of students’ tuition for scholarships and financial aid for other students. The set-aside money goes to need-based and non-need-based aid for both instate and out-of-state students. “When dealing with the tuition set-aside program, I believe students should be most aware of exactly how much of the tuition increases
about which they complain is being used not for their education, but instead to subsidize others,” said Representative Chip Baltimore. An ISU undergraduate resident is expected to pay a total rounded cost of attendance of $18,520 after spending money on tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and anticipated personal expenses. Baltimore believes the ability for Iowa State to provide students with
Group helps students budget By Charles.OBrien @iowastatedaily.com $29,455. This is the average amount of student debt an Iowa State graduate owes, a combination of rising tuition rates and poor financial literacy on the part of students.
A new student organization on campus called CyGold has a mission to help students learn how to become more financially literate. The idea for CyGold was spawned by former Government of the Student Body President Dakota Hoben and Vice President Jared Knight (who now serves as GSB president) during their campaign last spring, eventually becoming a reality during their
term this year. The group uses peer to peer interaction style instead of a financial adviser to help students. CyGold president Gregory Hunt, freshman in finance, explained there are several programs around the country that promote financial literacy, but Iowa
Crafty quilt inspires school spirit
Tom Short comes back to Iowa State By Katelynn McCollough Daily staff writer Tom Short, who describes himself as a “campus evangelist,” will be on campus sharing the gospel and answering students’ questions on Monday and Tuesday. Short will be located in front of the Hub in the Free Speech Zone. In the past, Short’s visit to campus has drawn those who either support, protest or wish to debate the subjects presented. Short is expanding to university students in both Europe and India. Short has also written a book titled “Five Crucial Questions about Christianity” and two evangelical magazines “The Truth Test” and “Why Jesus.” Short will be continuing on to Omaha after his visit to Iowa State.
financial aid allows a positive outcome when providing the university with numbers of students and students able to pursue an education. Looking at an adequate way in using a financial aid program, Baltimore feels Iowa State will continue to strive in developing a program that will not put the full burden of the program on the shoulders of young students.

There is nothing more picturesque in summer than a good beach on a sunny day. No matter what the water type, studies show that Iowans, given the chance, are flocking to water sources more and more
for recreational purposes. A study involving the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development and the Department of Natural Resources shows that in 2009, Iowans spent a total of $824 million in order to pursue recreational activities near water sources. Of that $824 million,
it is estimated that $130 million resulted in personal income for Iowans. “I think DNR was very interested in this [study] in terms of some guidance on what investments have the most payoff,” said Dan Otto,

Heidi Klum has formally filed for divorce from singer Seal, almost three months after they separated, the supermodel’s publicist said. Her filing in Los Angeles on Friday marks an end to a romance that captivated the nation with its numerous displays of affection, including a vow renewal ceremony every year and a Halloween costume party that featured Hollywood stars. The two separated in January after seven years of marriage. “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate,” they said in a joint statement at the time. “We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart.”
What’s the future of the ‘Hunger Games’ sequel? Is there drama afoot in the “Hunger Games” camp? Sure sounds like it. Director Gary Ross told CNN in March that he was on board to helm the “Hunger Games” sequel, “Catching Fire,” but new reports suggest that he might be off the project altogether. The Playlist suggests that Ross did not want to spend the next several months working on the next chapters of heroine Katniss Everdeen’s tale, although, as the Hollywood Reporter asserts, the money he was reportedly offered did not help. THR cites an unnamed source who claims that Ross wants a serious raise before he agrees to do a second installment. Time is said to be another factor, as the director reportedly has yet to revise the “Catching Fire” script and the studio has already announced the film will come out in November of next year.

finding the right way to represent the university was one of the more difficult parts of the quilt’s creation. “We wanted to make it Iowa State-wide, so that everyone could look and see a picture and remember a memory,” she said. The students were placed with responsibility for all aspects of the design, and they felt the pressure of making design decisions as well. “The hardest part was coming up with what to put in the quilt,” said Sydney Sterner, senior in apparel, merchandising and design. “We didn’t want to leave anyone out or offend anyone.”

viduals who were using river sources and asking them how much money they spent in gas, food and recreation services. “We did a few intercept surveys or caught them as they were loading their boats,” Otto said. “Just ask what they spent in various capillaries ... and then we kind of tallied that up by different types of recreation and parts of the state and arrived at these big bottle line numbers.” While these data give great insight into public use of natural resources, Hoogeveen believes more information can be observed by doing another

used during presentations.” The organization’s presentation is a basic informational overview in regards to financial literacy. The key points of the presentation pertain to how to set up a basic budget, how to responsibly use credit, credit cards or loans and about financial resources that are provided on campus. One other goal of CyGold’s is to raise student awareness about the amount of student debt Iowa State graduates leave school with. According to GSB’s website, from 1997 to 2007 the total cost of attending Iowa State rose
71.2 percent, including a tuition and fees increase of 119.1 percent. The current average debt of an Iowa State graduate is $29,455, a drop from what it has been for the past six years, which was an average of about $30,000. “If I had to choose a goal, I would say to be around the national average, which is around $25,000,” Hunt said in reference to a student debt goal for graduates in the next couple years. “What we want to do is to give students the knowledge and the resources to put them in the best possible situation after graduation.”
study of this sort. “State government budgets are under a lot of pressure, and I don’t have funds identified right now to make that happen,” Hoogeveen said. “I think we’d really like to look at this again in the future.” Both Otto and Hoogeveen agree that when it comes to quality of experience, the economics is really involved with providing a quality outdoor experience that people are willing to spend money on to enjoy. “It’s really important for people to have places along flowing water,” Hoogeveen said. “They seem drawn to it.”

A Decade in Pursuit of
The Unorthodox Ways of Building a Movement
Bobby Bailey Co-founder, Invisible Children
Monday, April 9, 2012 - 8 pm Sun room, Memorial Union
Bobby Bailey is cofounder of Invisible Children. He and two friends established the organization in 2005 after a lifechanging trip to Africa, where they discovered the story of the children in Northern Uganda who were being abducted from their homes and forced to fight as child soldiers by the rebel group the Lords Resistance Army. After returning home they made the documentary Invisible Children: Rough Cut and began screening it at high schools, colleges and churches. The organization now engages youth around the world, using the power of film, social media and storytelling to connect them in a very personal way to sustainable development programs in Uganda. Its recent video “Kony 2012” went viral, helping to make the LRA and Joseph Kony’s alleged crimes more widely known and prompting the African Union to deploy troops to capture the rebel leader.

Tuition set-asides raise expansive questions on education Imagine going to Panda Express for lunch and, at the register, the cashier says, “We’ve added 25 percent to your total to help pay for the food for the next person in line.” Would you be upset? What if we told you that the Board of Regents and Iowa State University do the same thing with your tuition? Student criticism of tuition and educational policy has been directed at the Iowa Legislature for cutting our funding. That legislature is only one part of a larger picture. The Board of Regents requires close scrutiny, too. Ultimately, it is them who raise tuition and set the policies for the administration of the universities. Section 8.02(C)(5)(i) of the Board of Regents’ policy “requires that a minimum of 15 percent of gross tuition proceeds be set aside annually by each Regent university for student financial aid.” In other words, the Board of Regents requires that Iowa State take 15 percent of your tuition and give it to someone else. The Regents report that “each university has exceeded [this] minimum requirement during the last several years.” To be specific, this year Iowa State took 23.5 percent of your tuition dollars and gave it to

some other student. The Regents call this “tuition set-aside,” and it’s been one of the best kept non-secrets in Iowa. They’ve been at it since 1989, too, taking 13 percent of student tuition at the time — a full 15 years before Regents policy actually began to require tuition setasides in 2004. According to the ISU Office of the Registrar, full-time, in-state, undergraduate tuition for this academic year is $3,204 per semester. At the current rate of set-aside, Iowa State kept $753 for someone else. That’s 1,506 of your dollars every year. Since 2004, when the tuition set-aside requirement began, Iowa’s college students have been over-charged out of approximately $1 billion. It’s good to help others when we’re able. Helping fund a scholarship pool is fine but, with tuition costs rising annually, 23.5 percent seems like extortion. Expect this to become a bigger issue. In an effort to become more transparent, the Regents is mandating that all of Iowa’s public universities start publishing the amount of tuition set-aside “in a prominently printed statement that appears ... with the student’s tuition bill or billing statement,” according to an amendment to the Regents policy manual approved
The Daily encourages discussion but does not guarantee its publication. We reserve the right to edit or reject any letter or online feedback.
March 21. As frustrating as tuition set-asides and tuition increases may be, we must bear in mind that the Regents aren’t our enemies, and right or wrong, they are doing what they think is best. Their justification for set-asides is that Iowa doesn’t have a scholarship or grant fund the same way other states do, and so the universities essentially created such a fund to meet the unmet needs of some students. The questions arising from the Regents’ desire to help others are important though, and we ought to ask them: Should Iowa have a better scholarship program? If Iowa did, could the Regents lower tuition by nearly a quarter? Or perhaps, is it right for one person to pay the tuition of another regardless of the latter’s need? Does everyone need to go to college in the first place? Should primary education be improved and restore college to a finishing institution, thus reducing college demand, slow tuition inflation and lessen the amount of student debt? Even with the Regents’ good intentions, we’re talking about your money, and whoever is caretaker of that money is ultimately accountable to you and deserves your scrutiny, whether it be the Legislature, the Regents, or the folks in Beardshear.

Ten books to improve leadership I
t has come to my attention that certain members of GSB’s ISU Ambassadors have been working hard to keep tuition low for Iowa State students. They have worked behind the scenes with state legislators and officials, paving the way for more student involvement. Their efforts are evident in the front-page articles of the Daily. So I have to give credit where credit is due, especially in the wake of my scathing three-part column criticizing GSB. While the outcome of their work remains to be seen, they are displaying leadership characteristics and tactics unlike their predecessors. So with this in mind, I offer the following ten books on leadership (and life) that have helped me when I was involved various student organizations when I was an undergraduate. These books aren’t meant just for members of GSB, anybody can find value these books. So here they are, in no particular order: 1. “Developing the Leader Within You,” by John C. Maxwell. This is the first book in Maxwell’s books on leadership and is a good place to begin. The book is fairly short, only 191 pages with large typeface, but covers the basics of leadership well. This is also the very first book on leadership I read. I still have my original copy. 2. “Beyond Talent,” by John C. Maxwell. This book comes later in Maxwell’s leadership series. There are plenty of talented people out there, but many rely on talent alone to simply drift through life. Other skills, such as leadership, coachability and the diligence to prepare, need to be cultivated in order to be truly successful. I was thinking of this book when I wrote the column on what Iowa State’s new slogan should be: Victoria Amat Preparatio— Victory Loves Preparation. 3. “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie. This book is a classic. Some of the examples might be outdated since it was written in the 1930s. This is the granddaddy of all motivational reading, and its lessons are still applicable after all these years. It’s still a best-seller. The runner up to this classic is… 4. “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living,” by Dale Carnegie. Five years ago, this book helped me get out of the nervous wreck I was in when I was a college dropout with little or no prospects for the future. Worry ages people. Worry paralyzes people into inaction or what’s been called “paralysis by analysis.” 5. “The Hero With a Thousand Faces,” by Joseph Campbell. I think one of the problems with America’s culture is it lacks a mythology to properly guide it. Being a leader often

By Stelios.Vasilis.Perdios @iowastatedaily.com means being heroic, going off the beaten path and thinking unconventionally. The heroes of myth do the same. And both encounter similar obstacles and trials, especially that first step to cross the threshold into the unknown. 6. “Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got,” by Jay Abraham. The real gem in this book is the questionnaire on pages 50 to 55. While the questionnaire is meant for developing a business plan or to improve on an existing
one, it can be applied to almost any organization. I’ve used this questionnaire successfully in the student clubs I was in when I was an undergraduate. In one case, a club’s membership tripled in part because of the ideas found within this book. 7. “The Monk and the Riddle,” by Randy Komisar. While this book mostly applies to entrepreneurship, it addresses nearly everybody’s desire to find his or her calling in life. A leader invests his or herself fully into a given project or process, instead of just padding their resume or making a quick buck and then leaving. 8. “Wild Mind: Living the Writer’s Life,” by Natalie Goldberg. Goldberg says the rules for writing practice also apply to having sex. I say the same rules also apply to leadership. Want to know the rules? Read the book. 5. “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” by Robert T. Kiyosaki. This book is more about opening
one’s mind to different possibilities rather than getting rich. The other books in his series often repeat the same message found in this book. Indeed, being a leader really is about keeping an open mind and envisioning different possibilities. 10. “Critical Path,” by R. Buckminster Fuller. This is Fuller’s magnum opus, published about two years before he died in 1983. This weighty tome should not be read lightly. It contains some pretty dense language. He invented such terms like “spaceship earth,” “ephemeralization” and the buzzword now used by many companies “synergy.” I’m not going to tell you what it is about. You need to read it for yourself. Enjoy!

Letter to the editor
Updated ticket policy preserves ‘Cyclone Alley’
After reading the editorial of Thursday, (in print, “Ticket sales for athletics lacks rationale”; and online, “ISU Athletics should consider students in deciding new policies”) on the new policies being implemented for student tickets, I was a little taken back. The editorial board ignored many of the facts at hand and showed little knowledge of the subject. The new changes are only set out to protect and enhance the “Cyclone Alley” experience. With under a 40 percent redemption rate of student tickets and over an 80 percent redemption rate by the general public, Cyclone Alley was becoming obsolete. Many large name universities are choosing to shrink the student section at basketball games, because students aren’t showing up; this is the case at
Dakota Hoben is a senior in agricultural business. schools like Duke and Wisconsin. Students need to understand that if the student section gets shrunk, they will never see those seats again; that is the nature of the reality we live in. I do not think any logical person can expect the athletics department to hold empty seats for students when the rest of the building is full. The athletics department consulted students in their decision, and this was the best possible outcome they could come to. I think any student can agree that overselling the student body
by 20 to 40 percent is a far better idea than shrinking the student section. If the athletics department had oversold the student section last year by 40 percent, not a single student would have been turned away all year. Let’s be honest with each other as students: The diehards will be there waiting to get in and will get in, while those students who don’t care as much and show up 10 minutes late, well there may be a game or two they don’t get into. The decision by the athletic department makes economic sense, and it also makes sense from a student perspective, at least one who wants to see Cyclone Alley and Hilton Magic remain relevant for years to come.

JOBS Act redefines startup funds It will soon be easier for small companies to raise money just like behemoths on Wall Street. More access to fundraising, new investors and fewer regulatory burdens are all part of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups bill, which President Barack Obama signed into law Thursday. The JOBS Act, which received bipartisan congressional support, provides small businesses that need capital with many options that were previously out of reach. The provisions are aimed at helping fast-growing operations like biotech and tech companies, but mom and pop shops may benefit as well. The Securities and Exchange Commission has several months to pass regulations fully implementing the law. For startups or entrepreneurs in need of initial funds to launch an idea, the law redefines crowdfunding. Previously, platforms like Indiegogo or Kickstarter offered companies a way to raise money from everyday folks. But contributors couldn’t buy shares in a company itself and take part in its profits and losses. The new law allows a company to use crowdfunding for seeking actual investors. It can raise up to $1 million this way. To protect investors, those with a net worth of less than $100,000 may now invest 5% of their yearly income or $2,000, whichever is higher. Wealthier types can invest up to 10% of their income. —CNN wire service

CASH MOB HITS AMES
Photo:David Derong/Iowa State Daily The Shoppes on Grand was visited by members of Cash Mob Ames on Saturday in the local group’s effort to support local businesses. The local business is currently up for sale and employees said they appreciated the sales the Cash Mob group brought in.
By Katie.DeVore @iowastatedaily.com The sound of tiny feet running around, laughter and adults mingling filled the air of an old Victorian house. This was not an ordinary Saturday morning at the Shoppes on Grand. Cash Mob Ames had arrived. This group is taking supporting local businesses to a whole new level. Cash Mob Ames, a group of Ames community members who have come together to support small and local businesses is taking matters in their own hands when it comes to keeping Ames local businesses thriving. “It is a way for people to make a difference in the Ames economy. Our goal is to support our local businesses and support our neighbors and friends in the Ames community,” said
Jeff Barr, Cash Mob member. The idea for Cash Mob Ames came from Fredrick Lloyd. “I read an article about a hardware store that did something like this in Ohio, and I thought this is something we can do in Ames,” Lloyd said. Lloyd said that he has lived in Ames since 1994 and admitted to not knowing about all the small and local businesses. “There are so many local businesses in Ames that we can really make a difference,” Lloyd said. The Cash Mob’s main communication is their Facebook page open to anyone who is interested. The Cash Mob’s goal is to have an outing once a month and wants members to spend at least $20. “Just showing up is more important than spending money. We don’t
want people to think they have to spend more than they want,” Lloyd
Our goal is to support our local businesses and support our neighbors and friends in the Ames community.” -Jeff Barr said. With 290 members on the Cash Mob Ames Facebook page after its second outing, Lloyd hopes for continued growth and more involvement in outings. “We are still getting started, and we have had a lot of new members
join,” Lloyd said. The Shoppes on Grand outing was a little different than how outings will normally go. The Shoppes on Grand has become an Ames landmark for the past 27 years but will be going out of business because the owner is retiring. “People chose this location as our second outing as a way to say thankyou for being in business for 27 years and giving so much to the community,” Lloyd said.
T Galaxy to close later this month
Now it’s the third most-visited social-networking site in the United States, according to a report released Thursday by Experian Marketing Services, a digital marketing firm. Pinterest, which lets its users “pin” photos and info from the Internet onto virtual boards, ranks behind only Facebook and Twitter in terms of total visitors, according to the analysis, titled “The 2012 Digital Marketer: Benchmark and Trend Report.”
T Galaxy, the sports apparel shop that has been a Campustown fixture since the ‘80s, will close its doors on April 21. “We’ve been around a long time, so I feel like alumni are going to miss the store more than current students,” said store manager Katie Gieseke, noting that many more apparel options have become available in recent years. All store merchandise is 50 percent off until the closing date, which is the Saturday of Veishea. Gieseke said there have been many rumors of what will happen to the store, but nothing is confirmed. —Daily Staff
The ranking is based on the total number of U.S. visitors during March and does not include mobile traffic, according to Experian spokeswoman Jennifer Marshall. Last month, Facebook had more than 7 billion total visitors; Twitter had 182 million; and Pinterest had 104 million total visits from people in the United States, according to data sent to CNN by Experian.
Iowa State Daily revamps online business section
That ranking puts the newbie site ahead of heavyweights such as LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace and Tumblr. One caveat: Since the data doesn’t include mobile traffic, sites such as Twitter, which sees much of its traffic from smartphones and tablets, may take a hit in this ranking, said Matt Tatham, another spokesman from Experian. Pinterest’s traffic jumped 50 percent between January and February. The report calls the site “the hottest social media start-up since Facebook and YouTube.”

Cyclones set personal bests at invitationals By Dylan Montz, Daily staff writer The ISU men’s track and field team were split this weekend between distance and nondistance runners, but personal records were achieved. At the Stanford Invitational, senior Rico Loy ran in the 5,000-meter run and finished with a time of 13:40.03, placing 16th and beating his personal record by almost one minute. Graduate student Daniel Gruber competed in the 1,500-meter run finishing fifth with a time of 3:48.74, just five seconds away from a personal best. At the Sun Angel Classic in Tempe, Ariz., senior Ian Warner led with a fifth-place finish, and second collegiate runner finish, in the premier section of the 100-meter dash. Warner clocked a personal best time 10.37 seconds.

Runners wrap up successful weekend By Stephen Koenigsfeld, Daily staff writer After a weekend of three meets, personal records and one Olympic Trial qualifying time, the women’s track and field team headed back to Ames with its head high. At the Stanford Invitational, junior Meaghan Nelson qualified for the Olympic Trials in the women’s 10,000-meter run, which is set to take place in June. Her time of 32:33.40 was the fastest debut time set by a Cyclone. Junior Ejiro Okoro ran her own personal record of 2:05.02 in the women’s 800-meter run, in which she placed fourth overall. ISU alumna Lisa Uhl placed second in the fast heat of the women’s 5,000-meter run at Stanford. At the Sun Angel Classic in Arizona, throwers Hayli Bozarth and Danielle Frere finished in the top 10 for the women’s hammer throw. At the San Francisco Distance Carnival, redshirt freshman Maddy Becker ran her personal record of 17:13 in the women’s 5K. Action continues next weekend at the Jim Duncan Invitational in Des Moines.

This is the third part of an eight-part series about how Big 12 realignment affects non-revenue sports at Iowa State. Part 3 focuses on the wrestling team. Part 4, on tennis, will publish Tuesday.
By Jake.Calhoun and Alex.Halsted @iowastatedaily.com When Texas A&M announced last September it would leave the Big 12 Conference, the wrestling teams did not bat an eye. The Big 12 has wrestled with less than six teams since 1980 and has operated its conference championship with an exception granted to be able to do so. And since A&M has never had a wrestling team, the news of their impending departure was irrelevant to Big 12 wrestling. However, when Missouri announced in November that it would follow Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference, the collective attention of the Big 12 wrestling community heightened. Missouri’s departure creates a barrage of questions since the SEC has not had any teams with wrestling since the late 1980s. “There are a lot of things on the table that have to be discussed,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson. “We feel it is very important to have a conference with a number of teams.” The departure of Nebraska after the 2010-11 athletic season served as a scare for the Big 12, which went from five to four teams in wrestling as a result. The Big 12, however, was granted permission that allowed it to continue hosting its conference championship this season two teams under the six required minimum to do so. Filling Missouri’s void will not be
Wrestling timeline Big 12 teams
Conference wrestling timeline: 1966 — Kansas drops wrestling program as member of the Big 8. 1975 — Kansas State drops wrestling program as member of the Big 8. 1980 — Colorado drops wrestling program as member of the Big 8. 2011 — Nebraska leaves the Big 12, joining the Big Ten for all sports. 2012 — It is announced Missouri will leave Big 12 for SEC, which has no wrestling. 2012 — West Virginia will leave the Big East and join the Big 12 for all sports.
Conference championships: Oklahoma State — 45 Iowa State — 15 Oklahoma — 23 Missouri — 1 West Virginia — 3 (EWL Championships) ** For all previous Big 12 schools, championships include titles in the Southwest, Missouri Valley, Big 6, Big 7, Big 8 and Big 12 conferences.
an issue since West Virginia — one of the Big 12’s two additions to the conference — has a varsity wrestling team that will be joining the conference next season. The main issue persisting in the minds of wrestling fans is where West Virginia will fit into the Big 12 and where Missouri will go if it does not go back.
Hello Mountaineers, Goodbye Tigers? Missouri’s uncertain future brings up the issue of where it will compete if it does not return to the Big 12 for wrestling. One option would be to compete in the Western Wrestling Conference — which currently hosts Iowa State’s in-state rival Northern Iowa, as well as other schools in the Midwest that do not have conference affiliations for the sport. Oklahoma State coach John Smith said he would like the Big 12 to take a look at Missouri’s current situation.
Coaches’ salaries Head Coach Salaries: John Smith (OSU) — $284,980 Mark Cody (OU) — $140,000 Kevin Jackson (ISU) — $125,000 Brian Smith (MU) — $107,744 Craig Turnbull (WV) — $94,287 * Numbers are, in order, from the Tulsa World, Associate Press, Des Moines Register, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Herald Dispatch.
Iowa State’s head-to-head records: vs. Oklahoma State — Oklahoma State leads 50-20-3 vs. Oklahoma — ISU leads 48-36-3 vs. Missouri — ISU leads 44-8 vs. West Virginia — ISU leads 9-1 *** via ISU athletic department
“With Missouri going to the Southeastern Conference — there’s not a lot of wrestling down there — maybe we can keep them,” Smith said when his team visited Ames in November. “If not, I like that we added West Virginia.” While the realignment discussions centered primarily around football and the money associated with it, Smith believes West Virginia having wrestling helped their case. He added that he knows wrestling was important to many people during discussions within the Big 12. Both Smith and Jackson said their recruiting is already very important in the Eastern part of the country, but acknowledged that competing in West Virginia would help their efforts. “It’s an hour outside the strongest state in the sport of wrestling, which is Pennsylvania,” Smith said. “It’s the
best wrestling right now in the country in high school. So it’s good for us to be able to get some exposure up there by wrestling them.” Smith said the primary reason competition with the Mountaineers would be beneficial is because it would allow recruits from that area of the country to watch his team — along with the other remaining members of the Big 12 — without traveling. Whether Missouri will be a part of those teams remains a major uncertainty.

File photo: Rebekka Brown/Iowa State Daily Michelle Shealy prepares to finish her time on the bars during the Jan. 20 meet at Hilton Coliseum. Shealy and her teammates worked to end the meet “with a bang” after a slow start on beam performances.
The ISU gymnastics team concluded its season at NCAA Regionals in last place with a score of 193.350, ending a meet below 194 for the fourth time this season. After performances on vault and bars, with scores of 48.750 and 48.425, the team began its descent to sixth place, falling on four out of six beam performances for an end score of 46.950. “We felt pretty confident we would hit,” said coach Jay Ronayne. “We practiced very well. This was completely out of left field to have a slow motion train wreck happen right in front of our eyes.” The team did not let the results on beam keep them down for long. The team came back and had a strong floor performance — one of its best — scoring 49.025. “Right after [we finished
beam] we were a little upset, but we got it together,” said sophomore Michelle Ronayne Shealy. “The meet wasn’t over so we got together as a team and said we had to go out with a bang. We came out and rocked floor.” The seniors were at the forefront of leading the team to great floor exercises. “They were disappointed in themselves, but at that point there was nothing they could do,” said sophomore Hailey Johnson. “Our seniors are mature enough to get through that and come back and do well in their next event.” The gymnasts were beaten up emotionally knowing it was their last event together, but they rallied to prove what they were capable of. “Directly after the meet we knew we could’ve done better,” Johnson said. “We had some flukes. In the end, in one of our last moments together, we kind of just let that go and were together as a team. We knew
we had to let it go and come back on floor.”
The end of the road for the seniors After the last meet of their long and storied careers at Iowa State, the three senior gymnasts will be missed. Shea Anderson, Michelle Browning and Celine Paulus have been respected by their peers and coach. “They grew up a lot over the years,” Ronayne said. “They’re like my daughters. It’s bittersweet. It’s bitter because I don’t want them to leave. They’re so great to be around. Just great people. It’s sweet because they get to move on with the next chapter of their lives.” Their leadership has not gone unnoticed, however, and the team will miss these seniors. “They’ve had great seasons all of them,” Shealy said. “Two of them had their career-high all-around. We’re really going to miss them. They are three great leaders for the team. Even though tonight wasn’t the best, they’ve been awesome all year.”

regional format, Burda said that is one of the main topics of discussion among coaches right now. “There’s no telling right now where the ‘regionalization’ concept is going to go,” Burda said. “It’s off the ground, but it is one of the concepts that is being discussed.”
Photo: Rebekka Brown/Iowa State Daily Tori Torrescano pitches to Texas A&M opponent Meagan May during the bottom of the sixth inning in the first game of Friday’s double header. The Cyclones fell to the Angies 1-6.
ISU upsets A&M in conference win allowing only three hits and one run for her fourth complete game of the season. “I came out and tried not to think about anything really,” Torrescano said. “I was hitting good spots and keeping the ball down for the most part. Good things happen when you keep the ball in the park.” Iowa State took an early 1-0 lead from a walk that scored a run in the first. A&M quickly answered, though, off an RBI double from first basemen Kelsea Orsak in the top of the third to even the game at 1-1. The game was tied going into the bottom of the fifth inning, when designated player Sara Rice was able to hit an RBI double that scored a run to put Iowa State ahead 2-1. “I knew working the count, we had seen her for two days in a row and so I felt
By Travis.Cammon @iowastatedaily.com The ISU softball team finally got its first conference win of the season with its upset 2-1 victory against No. 14 Texas A&M. Junior pitcher Tori Torrescano began the day for the Cyclones (12-24, 1-8 Big 12) to avoid being swept by their second straight conference opponent in the winning effort against the Aggies (27-11, 7-3). “I think with Tori, it’s there,” said coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler. “If Tori struggles, she’s her own worst enemy. She just needs to come out every day and realize she’s capable of throwing well all the time.” Torrescano turned in perhaps the best pitching performance of the season, having pitched all seven innings,
a little more comfortable at the plate,” Rice said. “As soon as I hit it, I couldn’t help but get a little smile on my face. It felt good to see my teammate cross the plate.” The win marks Iowa State’s first against a top-15 opponent since 2009 and its first win at home against a top-15 opponent since 2006. “I know everyone was a little bit pissed about the second game [on Friday] and how it got out of hand,” Torrescano said. “We had been with them the whole game, so I think a lot of people took from it that we had played right with them, and today we were firing on all cylinders.” The Cyclones will try to continue their momentum when they travel to Des Moines to face Drake on Tuesday. Action is set to begin at 4 p.m.
ing the Big 12 to buy some time to figure out what it wants to do until then with Missouri in limbo. “We’ve been in communication with our coaches in terms of future alignment options,” said Bob Burda, Big 12 associate commissioner of communications. “[We’re] working to do what’s in the best interest of our continuing members moving forward for the sport of wrestling. “At this juncture, the conversations have been very conceptual to get the process started. We haven’t drilled down to considering specific options yet.” Burda, official wrestling liaison for the Big 12, said the sport is considering the installment of a regional format similar to other NCAA sports that host regional competition prior to nationals. Burda said it is too early to tell whether the possible establishment of regionals would completely abolish the conferences currently in place. However, Jackson said there will always be conferences. “We’re never not going to compete for a conference title,” Jackson said. “We just don’t know what that looks like or if there will be adjustments made sooner than later.” The issue of national qualifiers muddies up the discussion — if wrestlers now have to qualify for the national tournament at regionals, what will happen to conference tournaments? “The way I understand it, if you went to regional qualifiers, then there would no longer be, potentially, conference championships,” Burda said. “Let’s say that you set it up as four regional qualifiers, you’d have to divide the country up geographically.” The current format uses the wrestlers’ regular season success to determine how many automatic qualifiers will be allocated to that wrestler’s conference. In terms of how that would play out in a

Regardless of what happens when the Big 12 coaches meet in May to discuss the possibility of regionals — among other things — it is likely that the Cyclones will find Morgantown, W.Va., as a destination some 870-plus miles east next season. The trip will be nearly 300 miles farther than Iowa State’s closest conference meet last season. Jackson, along with Smith and Oklahoma coach Mark Cody, all shared a similar sentiment and do not feel the added travel will be an issue. “I don’t think there’s any difference; we’ve traveled to Cornell and Arizona State,” Jackson said. “It’s not anything that we’re concerned with.” Cody said the Sooners already conserved in the past season compared to years past. Oklahoma flew to Ames two seasons ago, but made the trip via bus last November. “Budget-wise I think all schools in the Big 12 are OK,

and I think they can handle a trip [to West Virginia],” Cody said. “You just have to do it ahead of time and try to get the deals — and that’s what we do, we try to save money.” David Harris, ISU senior associate athletic director, who focuses on wrestling for the athletic department, said getting the most out of trips is also something Iowa State will try to do. “Last season we started off in Boston, and we had Army and Boston,” Harris said. “If we know we’re going to be wrestling at Cornell [for example], if there’s another school out there that we can combine and do a dual meet with, that presents an opportunity to go out there one time but get two competitions in and only have the expense for one [we’ll do that].” Harris said the Cyclones took a commercial flight to Old Dominion last season, and added that those decisions are made based on transportation and budget needs once they figure out who is on the schedule. “We’ll budget accordingly,” Harris said of traveling. “We’ll take a look at where Kevin feels are the best places for us to have competitions [and go from there].” Whether that will include Missouri next season as a conference opponent remains to be seen.

Mindless eating plagues Americans Research shows distracted eating habits hinder health By Randi.Reeder @iowastatedaily.com How do you know when you are full? Do you judge it by when everyone else at the table is done? When your plate is empty? Or when the food does not taste good anymore? All of the above have been questions given to Brian Wansink, author of the book, “Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think,” which has had a lot of publicity with being discussed on 20/20, BBC News, The Learning Channel, the Wall Street Journal and the New
York Times. Wansink, director of the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University, spoke on Iowa State’s campus last week to talk about his research and the work he has done at school campuses to change what students eat. In a study done in Paris, that same question was asked and the typical answer was “when I feel full.” In Chicago, 150 people were asked the same question and said they stopped eating when their plate or bowl was empty, when everyone else is through eating or when the TV show they were watching was over. “We are a nation of mindless eaters. The two main reasons why we eat the things we eat is visibility and convenience,” Wansink said.
This could also be true for many students on campus. How many times have you gone to a lecture with a recently purchased Vend-O-Land pop or candy bar because it was on the way to class? “I recommend eating with as few distractions as possible,” said Eunice Bassler, senior lecturer of the food science and human nutrition department. According to Wansink’s website, a person will eat more if they are distracted by watching TV or talking to friends, in the car, eating out of a bag or box, or family style when more is available at arm’s reach and when using bigger plates or bowls. A person will eat less if they are using smaller plates or bowls, utensils and snack bags and
slow down the pace at the dinner table. Wansink was successful in changing students’ habits of eating at lunch on basic placement such as moving the salad bar to a more visible place in the lunchroom, putting the fruit in a large fruit bowl and putting the water bottles in the front of the bottles of sugary pop. “Making eating behavior changes depend on believing the change is important and having the confidence to change,” Bassler said. “Eating-contextual skills such as tuning into foods and paying attention to yourself and your environment when eating are some, not all, of the skills needed to be a competent eater,” Bassler said. “ Additional skills needed relate to internal regulation, food acceptance and having a positive attitude toward food and eating.”

The rules for classification of a student that will be labeled as a resident or nonresident for tuition and fee purposes include general residency guidelines, with specific discussion of military, American Indians, refugees and immigrants. Junior Nick Rutherford from Grinnell, Iowa, believes the idea of the tuition set-aside is fair as long as it is distributed strictly for academic purposes. “I don’t mind the university doing this as long as the students have the required GPA and ACT scores to get accepted into Iowa State to begin with,” Rutherford said. When looking at the future for the tuition set-aside program, Baltimore believes there will be changes in the next years regarding the percentage of tuition coming out of each student’s total amount to attend the university. “I wholeheartedly agree that ISU needs a financial aid program to assist those who deserve but cannot afford to obtain a college education,” Baltimore said. “I believe that
I wholeheartedly agree that ISU needs a financial aid program to assist those who deserve but cannot afford to obtain a college education. I believe ... the vast majority of students would not object.” Chip Baltimore if a small percentage of each student’s tuition were used for that purpose, the vast majority of students would not object.” Students can be classified into six different categories of resident undergraduate students, resident graduate students, nonresident undergraduate students, nonresident graduate students, resident professional students and nonresident professional students when looking at the tuition set aside for each student attending the university.
