Miles joins national education group IOWA CITY, Iowa — The former president of the Iowa Board of Regents who resigned under pressure from Gov. Terry Branstad is joining a prestigious national higher education group. The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges on Monday announced businessman David Miles of West Des Moines was appointed to its board. The association works to strengthen university governance and serves more than 1,200 boards and 35,000 administrators. President Richard Legon praised Miles’ extensive experience in higher education, business and nonprofit leadership and added “his enthusiasm for governance and for the safeguarding of citizen trusteeship are laudable.” Miles resigned as president but remained on the Iowa board after Branstad made clear he wanted new leadership. Miles called the request unprecedented for the independent board but agreed after the tension became a distraction. The Associated Press

Students were lured to the event by free pizza, cupcakes and T-shirts.

A highlight of the year

WelcomeFest delights students once again. By Kaleb.Warnock

WelcomeFest is known for its copious amounts of swag like Koozies, coupons, condoms, cupcakes, pizza, piercings, makeup, massages, Ramen Noodles, water bottles and even stylish sunglasses. “They were giving out sunnies!” said exchange student Valerie Phoon regarding the free sunglasses from “No one gives out free sunnies!” Ames businesses and organizations scrambled to feed, convert,

recruit and even massage nearly 5,000 students at ISU’s annual WelcomeFest on Wednesday night. The Great Hall of the Memorial Union was packed with a sea of students that shuffled from booth to booth trying to catch a glimpse of some of the best businesses Ames has to offer. “I didn’t expect it to be like this at all,” said Molli Wienhold, sophomore in environmental science. “It was crazy that there are so many booths that have so many coupons and deals.” Of course, handing out free stuff gives businesses the chance to reach out to the student body. One of the most pervasive (and aromatic) handouts was the free pizza from Papa John’s. “It’s a good opportunity to get

ourselves out there,” said Meaghan Hall, shift manager of Papa John’s on Lincoln Way. “We give students coupons and usually get a pretty good return.” WelcomeFest also gave Main Street and off-campus businesses like the Cupcake Emporium the chance to interact with students. Besides, it’s hard to beat free cupcakes. “Main Street is kind of hidden; it’s nice just to let them know we’re here.” said Tawnya Zerr, of the Cupcake Emporium. “Hopefully I’ll see a bunch of people back.” However, it wasn’t all about free stuff. There also were numerous church groups, job opportunities and

Ames rated 13th geekiest city in U.S. By John.Lonsdale Ames has recently been rated as the 13th “geekiest” city in the country. The National Science Foundation found that Ames has 10.7 percent, 4,480 workers, working jobs in science or engineering. In comparison to top-rated San Jose, Calif., with 165,400 workers employed at a percentage of 18.2 workforce, Ames has a lesser amount of those employed, but ranks in the Top 20 because of the ratio of “geeks” to non-”geeks.” That’s not to say there’s anything less important happening here at Iowa State. “I think we have some individuals, especially in the research area, that are definitely on the forefront” said Maury Hope, associate CIO for IT Services. Hope attributed the ranking to those researching in the engineering and computer science fields, but doesn’t want to leave out those in agriculture or

Social media

Fampus events website debuts on Iowa State campus New networking site announces campus events. By Paige.Godden and Emily.Harmon Find fun fast on your campus. Fampus. com, a social networking site dedicated to event organization, launched at Iowa State on Tuesday. “We’re trying to do what Twitter did for the Facebook status, only with events,” said Brittany Brody, founder of Fampus. She said the site is different from Facebook because users can search for specific events for information and photos, rather than having to look through friends’ profiles to see if anyone went to the event. Brody is originally from West Des Moines and attended the University of Wisconsin, and said when she arrived on UW’s campus, she was overwhelmed by all of the events. She started asking her peers at the university if they would be interested in a site that would bring together every event on campus and finally hit a breaking point

when she found out that she missed the author of a book she had read who had been on campus. After deciding Fampus was a necessity, Brody talked to her dad, an entrepreneur, and met with professionals who were experienced in building websites. They eventually launched the beta version at Grand View University in Des Moines. Devlin Hogans, a senior in communication and journalism broadcasting at Grand View, initially met the program with disdain. “I think it is a waste because we pay them for what Facebook can do,” Hogans said. Another student, Katie Zens, junior in accounting and finance at Grand View, echoed those views. She said Fampus was a good concept but she didn’t recall friends using it or talking about it after it was introduced. After testing the site at Grand View, however, Brody changed a few things. The site is now free and will draw revenue from local advertisement. Right now the site is focusing more on getting student traffic to the website over advertising.

Postal Service

Campustown post offices face tough times By Sarah.Clark Ames residents gathered at the Main Post Office on Wednesday night to express their concerns about the future of the Memorial Union and Welch Avenue post offices. In July, the United States Postal Service released information about a cost-cutting study that would close several post offices across the U.S. More than 170 offices in Iowa are being included in the study and both the Memorial Union and Welch Avenue post offices are among the 3,700 post offices nationwide being considered for closure. Postmaster of Ames Larry Jordison stated that the Postal Service is losing $33 million a day and that cost-saving measures have been taking place for a while. The U.S. Postal Services released a budget update this month stating that in the end of its third quarter in June, the agency had a net loss of $3.1 billion and in the last four

years it had cut its staff by about 130,000. More than 20 residents attended last night’s meeting to learn more about the study and express their concerns about what may happen if one or both of the offices were to close. Concerns ranged from the lack of convenience for students to the safety of packages and mail and the loss of the community feeling of a post office. Although few students were in attendance, many of the meeting’s attendees were also concerned with the postal needs of students living on campus and international students. Residents in attendance were able to fill out questionnaires to express their concerns. These questionnaires will be available at the Main Post Office for students and residents to fill out and submit. All questions and concerns from the meeting were documented and will be submitted for review.

Giles updates GSB on State Gym renovation delay Discussion about CyRide’s budget will continue next week. By Charlie.O’Brien Recreation Services Director Mike Giles updated the Government of the Student Body about the State Gym renovation at Wednesday

Paul Farmer Thursday, August 25, 2011 7 pm - Stephens Auditorium

Free Admission - Doors open at 6 pm Global humanitarian, medical anthropologist and physician Paul Farmer has dedicated his life to improving health care for the world’s poorest people. He is founding director of Partners In Health, an international nonprofit organization whose medical services, research and advocacy activities have shown that high-quality health care can be delivered in resource-poor settings. Dr. Farmer has written extensively on health, human rights, and the consequences of social inequality. His most recent book is Haiti after the Earthquake. He is chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School; Chief of the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and the United Nations Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti. Dr. Farmer is also the subject of the book Mountains beyond Mountains by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder.

in September because the Board of Regents has to approve it before it’s given to students. Recreation Services believes it’s important to give the money back to students because students won’t have access to the facility. He said the credit refund won’t affect the budget of the project. Giles said he isn’t sure what will happen between the university and the State Gym contractor. “It costs a lot of money to get

someone to owe you money,” Giles said. “I’m not going to reimbursed. The contractor isn’t going to reimburse me $4.5 million we lost in student fees.” GSB also discussed a budget shortfall CyRide is dealing with. Due to high gas prices and an unstable economy, CyRide is facing debt between $150,000 to $250,000, said Anna Fox, a CyRide Board member. She said CyRide was able to cut $80,000 of internal expenses and has


Apple fans: Company is more than Steve By Barbara Ortutay and Christina Rexrode The Associated Press NEW YORK — Apple fans and would-be customers seemed to agree that while Steve Jobs’ charisma and innovative genius is one-of-akind, the company he built will survive without him. On Wednesday night, after he resigned as CEO of the iconic gadget maker, Jobs was not the topic of conversation among shoppers, browsers or the blue-shirted employees at the Apple store on Manhattan’s swanky Fifth Avenue. On the display computers set up around the store, people scrolled through Facebook photos, looked up bank account balances and watched videos on YouTube. They weren’t, from the looks of it, reading news stories about Jobs. “Apple’s created an identity for themselves that is well above and beyond Steve Jobs. People don’t think of Steve Jobs when they think of Apple, they think of a sexy

brand,” said Jared Karlow, 23, who works in information technology for the financial services industry. “You could say the same thing about Microsoft. They have outlived Bill Gates.” Jobs resigned as CEO on Wednesday, saying he can no longer handle the job. He said he will continue to play a leadership role and was elected chairman of the board. He has been on medical leave since January. Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, who has been filling in for Jobs, was named as CEO. Karlow, 23, was shopping with his girlfriend, Maegan Tabbey, 21, on the evening that Jobs resigned. They didn’t

know about the news until being told by a reporter. But both believe that the company will be fine and that Jobs’ role likely became less integral as the company grew. “There are thousands of employees who do the work that brought Apple to where it is,” Karlow said. “It’s not just one man.” Apple may be known for its rabid fan base, but the company’s creative genius lies in being able to attract a mass-market audience. These are the folks who may only vaguely know that Steve Jobs, the guy in the black mock turtlenecks, is the force behind the iPhone in their pocket or the iPad in their hands.

a trust of $1.2 million. A CyRide meeting discussing the budget will be held at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 1. Fox said a bus-tracking system CyRide is trying to implement might have to be cut to deal with the budget shortfall, but there are other options the board is looking into. The discussion on CyRide will continue next week because the senate didn’t reach a consensus on how it would like to solve the debt problems.

other areas. When discussing his department’s role in the ranking, Hope said that technology is a big part of how the university runs — from the network all the way to the applications that handle payroll, student admissions, research and administration. “We’re the backbone of the university,” he said.

Walking out of an Apple store in Phoenix, 49-year-old Jim Zanzucchi said he’d never heard of Jobs, and he didn’t believe the CEO’s departure would mean less innovation for the company. “I don’t know if he’s the person who thought of it all. I’m sure he wasn’t. I’m sure there’s a host of people below them,” he said. He added he doesn’t use Apple products because of Jobs. Unless prompted by reporter, customers didn’t seem to be discussing Jobs’ departure in the Fifth Avenue Apple store. Instead, they were asking employees about the products and how much each cost. A woman flipped through Facebook pictures on a MacBook Air. To her right, a man checked his bank account balance on another MacBook Air. Business flowed as usual. “He has so much charisma, I’m curious if they can keep it up because there is kind of this cult around him,” said Selim Sevinc, 25, a medical student from Germany. But Sevinc said it was Apple’s products that influenced him to get an iPhone and switch from PCs to Macs. “When Dell catches up, I would switch to Dell,” he said. “Maybe.”

relations representative of Parks Library. “It’s what can we do to catch people that normally don’t come to the library.” The event has grown significantly from last year, said George Micalone, program coordinator at the Memorial Union. It featured 109 vendors and organizations, up from the usual number that hovers in the lower 90s. “We’re excited that it continues to be a highlight of the year,” Micalone said. “People really endorse the event because of what it gives students.”

As far as the word “geekiest” goes, Hope laughed and said that he wasn’t offended by the word. A article, “Geekville, USA: America’s 20 Geekiest Cities,” explains the reason for the G-word title in the list. Ames is home to an institution based predominantly on science and technology and its very own laboratory; those in the science field like

Paul Canfield, distinguished professor in physics and astronomy, seem to think that’s a large reason Ames ranked on the list. In addition, it’s a large boost of confidence — a sort of “Go team!” feeling. “Ames is a very interesting city to live [in] because it has a high density of people who are interested not only in science but in all sorts of things,” Canfield said.

John Lewis, Ambassador Andrew Young and the Rev. Jesse Jackson suddenly broke down in tears. With Lewis leaning on his shovel, and Jackson and Young leaning on each other, they wept for how far they had come and for what they had lost. They mused together over their last staff meeting before they went to Memphis in April 1968 — a journey that would end in King’s assassination. The memory dredged up feelings no one else could fully share. “We just looked at each other,” Jackson said. “It was a different moment for us.” This weekend, the trio, along with the Rev. Joseph Lowery and many other lesser known soldiers who worked alongside King in the struggle for justice and equality for black Americans plan to come together again, to dedicate the monument built in his honor. In the more than four decades since the death of the civil rights icon, Jackson, Lewis, Lowery and Young have remained tied to King’s legacy — and to each other.

HATTERAS, N.C. — Tourists began evacuating from a tiny barrier island off North Carolina on Wednesday as Hurricane Irene strengthened to a major Category 3 storm over the Bahamas with the East Coast in its sights. So far, things were going smoothly, said Tommy Hutcherson, owner of the Ocracoke Variety Store on Ocracoke Island. Cars had lined up at gas pumps to top off before leaving ahead of Irene, which had winds near 120 mph as of Wednesday afternoon. Irene is expected to get stronger over warm ocean waters and could become a Category 4 storm with winds of at least 131 mph by Thursday. The evacuation was a test of whether people in the crosshairs of the first major hurricane along the East Coast in years would heed orders to get out of the way and leave. As Irene churned in the Caribbean, tourists scurried from hotels in the Bahamian capital of Nassau to catch flights off the island before the airport’s expected afternoon closure. Officials as far north as Rhode Island and Massachusetts in the U.S. also were getting ready for Irene. The first ferry to leave Ocracoke Island in North Carolina arrived just before 5:30 a.m. in nearby Hatteras with around a dozen cars on board. The 16-mile-long barrier island is accessible only by boats that can carry no more than 50 cars at a time. It is home to about 800 year-round residents and a tourist population that swells into the thousands when vacationers rent rooms and cottages. Tourists were told to evacuate Wednesday. Island residents were told to get out on Thursday.

It wasn’t clear how many people on the first arriving ferry Wednesday morning were tourists, but the first two cars to drive off had New York and New Jersey plates. Getting off of the next ferry about an hour later was a family that included newlywed Jennifer Zaharek, 23, of Torrington, Conn. She and her husband, Andrew, were married Monday and planned to spend their honeymoon on the island. “We just got to spend one day on the beach and then we went to bed early to get up for the evacuation,” she said. State workers questioned people who tried taking the ferry to the island and turned a few cars around. In addition to the ferry line to Hatteras, there were two other ferry lines that went to and from the island. Federal officials have warned Irene could cause flooding, power outages

or worse all along the East Coast as far north as Maine, even if it stays offshore. The projected path has gradually shifted to the east, and Irene could make landfall anywhere from South Carolina to Massachusetts over the weekend. As of 2 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Irene was centered about 250 miles southeast of Nassau in the Bahamas and was moving northwest near 12 mph. Speaking Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Craig Fugate, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said people as far north as New England should be ready for the storm. When asked about concerns preparing the Northeast for a hurricane, which is uncommon in that part of the country, Fugate cited Tuesday’s earthquake that rattled the East Coast. “It’s a reminder that we don’t always get to pick the next disaster,” Fugate said.

Panel: Captain who made lewd videos can stay in Navy By Brock Vergakis The Associated Press

File photo: U.S. Navy/The Associated Press Navy Capt. Owen Honors is shown in an official portrait. The former commander who produced videos aboard the USS Enterprise is allowed to remain in the Navy.

NORFOLK, Va. — The former commander of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier who produced raunchy videos aboard the USS Enterprise can remain in the Navy despite a finding that he committed misconduct, a Navy panel ruled Wednesday. Capt. Owen P. Honors let out a sigh of relief after the board of inquiry read its decision, then embraced his wife after months of uncertainty about his career largely came to a close. The board was deciding whether to recommend to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus that Honors should be kicked out of the Navy after nearly three decades of service because of the videos. Among other things, the videos included simulated same-sex shower scenes, anti-gay slurs and references to prostitution in foreign ports. Honors also faced the possibility of losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in retirement benefits if he

had been forced out under a different pay grade. “O.P. is pleased,” Honors’ attorney, Charles Gittins, told reporters following the hearing. “Retention is a big deal. He has the advantage now of leaving now on his terms.” Honors was removed as the carrier’s top officer in January days before a scheduled deployment after several of the videos were leaked to media outlets. He was reassigned to administrative duties because of the videos and Honors believes an officer he had recently disciplined on the ship was responsible for the leak, which he considers an act of revenge. It was not immediately clear what jobs Honors’ may hold in the future, but it is unlikely he would return to the Enterprise. A new commanding officer took control of the ship last week, replacing the commanding officer who was called in for a six month deployment following Honors’ dismissal. Honors said the videos were made to improve morale while teaching important shipboard lessons, such

as water conservation. He helped produce and appeared in the videos that aired on the ship’s closed circuit television network between October 2005 and December 2007, when he was the ship’s executive officer. Maintaining morale is part of the executive officer’s job and by all accounts the videos were wildly popular with the crew. They were shown to thousands of sailors each Saturday night before a feature length film Honors’ had chosen and many sailors proudly agreed to appear in them. One of the women in a same-sex shower scene — who at the end of the video was shown to be clothed — said she had even shown the video to her parents. Honors is one of a number of commanding officers fired from the job by the Navy this year, but his case has drawn by far the most attention. Clips of the videos have appeared on national television, providing a significant source of embarrassment for Navy leaders. Gittins said convening the board hearing was politically motivated.

World Trade Center


Top court hears 1993 bombing case for second time By Michael Virtanen The Associated Press ALBANY, N.Y. — The World Trade Center managers urged New York’s top court Wednesday to find them immune from negligence claims for failing to deter the 1993 parking garage bombing that killed six people and injured about 1,000. Attorney Richard Rothman, representing the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs area airports and owns the trade center site, told the Court of Appeals that government immunity should apply to its security measures, which he said were reasonable. “The Legislature said the Port Authority is public. The Port Authority is acting for a public purpose,” Rothman said. “It is undisputed in this case the Port Authority was

facing risks and trying to address risks that threatened its network.” Attorney Victor Kovner, representing a man who was injured and awarded nearly $600,000 in the damages phase of the case, said the issue was the agency’s failure, despite awareness of terrorist threats, to take precautions including closing the garage to the public. “Here it was the omission to implement any of the recommendations for a period of eight years,” he said. Plaintiffs argued that most of the tenants were commercial, and the agency had the same responsibility as a commercial landlord and was not entitled to governmental immunity. The towers also housed offices for the governor and several state and federal agencies, Rothman said in June arguments.

Federal charges filed against 2 in massive Arizona forest fire By Mark Carlson The Associated Press PHOENIX — Federal charges have been filed against two cousins accused of accidentally causing the largest forest fire in Arizona’s history by leaving a campfire unattended. The U.S. attorney’s office on Wednesday announced the charges against Caleb Joshua Malboeuf, 26, of Benson and David Wayne Malboeuf, 24, of Tucson. The U.S. Forest Service said its investigators determined the men were camping in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest when the fire began there May 29. The agency said the two were out hiking when their campfire spread outside its fire ring in high winds. “Upon noticing smoke from the direction of their campsite, the cousins attempted to get back to their campsite where they had left their gear,” the Forest Service said in a statement. “As they got closer, the smoke and flames became too intense, and they were forced to retreat.”

File photo: Greg Bryan/The Associated Press Fire crew trucks along Forest Route 24 are dwarfed by plumes of smoke from the fire burning in the Bear Wallow Wilderness in Arizona. Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday the filing of charges accusing two of accidentally starting the fire.

The men each face five counts, including leaving a fire unattended and failing to maintain control of a fire that damaged a National Forest System.

A conviction for each of the offenses charged in the complaint carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison, a $5,000 fine or both.

Photo: Greg DeRuiter/The Associated Press A man walks into TNT, a medical marijuana dispensary, Wednesday in Lansing, Mich. Medical marijuana cannot be sold through private shops, the Michigan appeals court said Wednesday.

File photo: Carlos Osorio/The Associated Press Three types of marijuana buds are shown at Med Grow Cannabis College in Southfield, Mich. A threejudge panel said the 2008 medical marijuana law does not allow people to sell pot to each other.

Michigan court bars medical marijuana sale By Ed White The Associated Press DETROIT — Medical marijuana cannot be sold through private shops, the Michigan appeals court said Wednesday in a major decision that strikes at businesses trying to cash in on pot and cuts off a source for people with chronic ailments. A three-judge panel said the 2008 medical marijuana law, as well as the state’s public health code, does not allow people to sell pot to each other, even if they’re among the 99,500 who have state-issued marijuana cards. The court said Compassionate Apothecary in Mount Pleasant, Mich., can be immediately shut down as a “public nuisance.” The 3-0 decision means local authorities can pur-

sue similar businesses, estimated at 200 to 300, in their communities. It was not immediately clear whether they would, but state Attorney General Bill Schuette said he’s notifying all 83 county prosecutors. “This ruling is a huge victory for public safety and Michigan communities struggling with an invasion of pot shops near their schools, homes and churches,” Schuette said in a statement. “The court echoed the concerns of law enforcement, clarifying that this law is narrowly focused to help the seriously ill, not the creation of a marijuana free-for-all.” Of course, not everyone shares that view. Chuck Ream, president of an Ann Arbor shop, called the ruling an “assault on democracy” nearly

three years after voters approved marijuana as a way to relieve pain or other medical problems. He estimates that one-third of people with marijuana cards get pot through dispensaries, with others growing their own or getting it through a registered caregiver. “If they want wheelchairs chained to every door at the Capitol, if they want to fight about this — oh, boy, they’ll have a fight,” said Ream of A2 Compassionate Healthcare. “There are a lot of people who don’t want to be drooling idiots on Oxycontin. They’ve found a medicine that relieves their pain and makes them happy.” There is no dispute that the marijuana law makes no mention of dispensaries; it doesn’t even indicate how people should get their dope.

It says people can possess up to 2.5 ounces of “usable” pot and keep up to 12 plants in a locked place. A caregiver also can provide marijuana. Compassionate Apothecary, and owners of the mid-Michigan company, claimed they weren’t doing anything illegal because the law allows the “delivery” and “transfer” of marijuana. The business allows its 345 members to sell marijuana to each other, with the owners taking as much as a 20 percent cut. In less than three months, Compassionate Apothecary earned $21,000 before expenses after opening in May 2010. “The ‘medical use’ of marijuana does not include patient-to-patient ‘sales’ of marijuana. Defendants, therefore, have no authority under

the (law) to operate a marijuana dispensary that actively engages in and carries out patient-to-patient sales,” said appeals court judges Joel Hoekstra, Christopher Murray and Cynthia Diane Stephens. Compassionate Apothecary attorney John Lewis said the shop was still in business Wednesday but likely not for long. “It’s unfortunate for patients who benefit from medical marijuana. It’s going to affect their access to an uninterrupted supply,” Lewis said. Just this week, an ordinance took effect in Ann Arbor, a liberal college town, to license dispensaries. Many already operate there. “How this works will have to be reviewed” because of the court ruling, city attorney Stephen Postema said.


San Francisco transit board developing wireless policy By Paul Elias The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Transit agency directors appeared ready Wednesday to allow police to cut wireless phone access on train platforms, but only in extreme public safety circumstances. Eight of the nine Bay Area Rapid Transit directors met in a special meeting Wednesday in Oakland after the agency started a global debate over free speech when it shut off its wireless access in downtown San Francisco stations to disrupt a planned protest on Aug. 11. The board didn’t take a formal vote at the meeting, but members expect to adopt a formal policy within a month. The board was divided over whether the tactic was appropriate to disrupt organizers’ plans to distribute instruction through social networks and social media on how to disrupt the Aug. 11 commute. After officials cut wireless power, the planned protest over transit police fatally shooting a knife-wielding transient failed to develop. “I thought it was a good idea at the time,” said director Thomas Blalock. He said letters he re-

ceived from the politically conservative district he serves south of Oakland were overwhelmingly in favor of the shut off. Director Lynette Sweet, who represents liberal parts of Oakland, said BART was wrong to turn off wireless access, a move she said prompted two rowdy demonstrations that disrupted the evening commute the last two Monday nights. “Instead of fixing a situation, we escalated it,” Sweet said. Still, Sweet agrees with the other directors that rare situations — defusing a bomb controlled by a cellphone signal, for instance — warranted the action. Board president Bob Franklin said the agency will adopt a formal wireless policy within a month, after holding another hearing and consulting with outsiders, including the American Civil Liberties Union. BART is the first reported U.S. governmental agency to turn off wireless access to quell social unrest. British authorities considered the tactic during the recent London riots and Hosni Mubarak tried to block Internet access in Egypt in an unsuccessful bid to blunt demonstrators calling for his resignation.

Postal Service should scale back, regroup To cope with large-scale successive financial losses, the U.S. Postal Service is reviewing the status of more than 3,600 post offices, branches and station. The post office on Welch Avenue, which many students and members of the ISU and Ames community find useful, is among that number. Recent losses are staggering. In 2007, the Postal Service lost some $5.3 billion. That number was halved for 2008, at $2.8 billion; but in 2009 it was up again. That year, the service lost more than $5 billion. Those are billions — with a “B.” FedEx and UPS are allowed to compete with the ordinary Postal Service in parcel delivery and urgent letter delivery, but the Constitution gives the government a monopoly on ordinary mail services. Granted, mail delivery is important in any country that wants a robust commercial life or political discourse. But given those numbers above, the Postal Service clearly needs some restructuring. Much like Starbucks’ and Borders’ problems of having opened too many fancy, new stores and offering too many services too quickly, the Postal Service may in fact need to close hundreds if not thousands of its locations. Re-trenching is not a bad option. Closing excess locations (is it really that difficult to get to downtown Ames from campus?) would allow the Postal Service to perform well at the things it can perform well, while leaving to other businesses the kinds of deliveries they can do better. Then, as conditions improve and the Postal Service starts to pay out less money than it takes in, it can expand in geographic scope. Sustainability isn’t just an environmental concept; it applies to economics as well. If businesses expand too quickly, they venture into unstructured territory. When their business declines after an initial period of enthusiasm or other crises divert resources which were formerly marked for investment, they start to totter because of their fragility. Build the frame before the house, and then fill it in. Don’t build a set of rooms on the ground and then expect to be able to go frame them afterward or be able to dig a foundation under the floor and cement it into place. The Postal Service should try to understand the modern world we live in. With newer, faster methods of communicating — first it was faxes and later email, then instant messaging and text messages — the Postal Service needs to adjust. Offices and stations might not be necessary everywhere. Comparatively, few rural communities have grocery stores and shopping districts. Some don’t even have a church. Why should they have a post office?

Break the

sexual stereotype

Photo courtesy of Thinkstock


s yet another academic year starts up, so does another round of house parties, frat events and F.A.C. drink specials on nights dripping with the sweet smell of collegeaged sexuality. Weekend after weekend, the “typical” script for hookup culture acceptable sexual behavior is something along the lines of the following: 1. Male pursues female until she says no. 2. If a no is not heard, they have sex. 3. The female lies in missionary position while the male penetrates her repeatedly. 4. Pleasure isn’t necessarily experienced by either party. (As a helpful side note: Despite what you think has occurred, not a single woman I know can experience orgasm without some sort of direct clitoral stimulation.) 5. The male is “the man” for “getting the girl.” 6. The female is “the slut” for participating at all. The above situation has overlooked something pretty damn disturbing: female sexual autonomy. The typically practiced sexual script leaves female sexual desire in a realm of non-existence and non-acknowledgment, sexual assault within our rape-permitting culture rampant; and the responsibility of all the latter is assumed to lie in the hands of the very same women this system oppresses. For the sake of increased pleasure everywhere (and who could possibly be opposed

By Ahna.Kruzic to that?), a full-blown sexual paradigm shift within the ISU community is imperative. What if the “normal” sexual script followed something along the lines of this instead? 1. Males pursue individuals he finds attractive, females pursue individuals she finds attractive. 2. If a “yes!” is present from both parties, they have sex. 3. The female is comfortable describing exactly what she wants. 4. The male is comfortable describing exactly what he wants. 5. All participating parties experience pleasure. 6. Pleasure is celebrated, not considered shameful. Both men and women can participate fully in a sexual situation with no attached stigma. Ideally, the above is what would constitute the typical hookup culture sexual encounter. The exclusive pressure on males to pursue sexual encounters would be lifted. Consent would no longer be the pressuring of a potential partner until you have sex; it would be firmly re-categorized as a “yes!” by both

parties and absolutely nothing else; meaning both individuals desire each other, no questions asked. And the best part of this paradigm shift: Pleasurable sexual encounters would be both normalized and expected for men and women. Yes — this could mean the end of the all-too-common jack-rabbit style sexual encounter! In fact, if the sexual paradigm shift were complete, pleasure-void hookups would be considered extensively more shameful and “freaky” than an encounter where consent is requested to [insert sexual fantasy here]. Pleasure experienced by consenting humans would be normalized and celebrated, regardless of how it’s achieved. Small changes in behavior can get us closer to the desired effects of this sexual paradigm shift. If men and women at Iowa State were to act with the expectation that all individuals have varying sexual desires, a shift would naturally follow. Men: When pursuing a sexual partner, seek out a “yes” as opposed to the “let’s see how far I can get without hearing a ‘no’ mentality.” When a potential partner pursues you, be straightforward about what you consent to and what you do not. Also, make sure you are clear about what your partner has consented to. If both partners are aware of exactly what the other desires, your experiences will be all the more pleasurable. Also, actively dismantle the “slut” mentality to

partners and peers; a sexually autonomous woman is not “dirty” or “lacking respect.” Female sexuality should be celebrated, not shamed. Women: First off, pursue a partner if you want to. When pursuing a sexual partner, you too should seek out a “yes” as opposed to “just trying until you hear a no.” Be honest with your partner about what you want and don’t want — there’s no justifiable purpose in going through the motions of the stereotypical hookup when no one’s actually enjoying themselves. Also, stop supporting the very same “slut” name-calling that stifles your own and other females’ pleasure and autonomy. As mentioned previously, pleasure should be celebrated; shaming your peers for experiencing pleasure does no one any good. I am confident that small changes in what is currently considered our normalized sexual encounter script could help create a new normal at Iowa State; a normal in which consent is key, desires are actually fulfilled and people are not pressured and expected to perform in a specified way. Perhaps most importantly, a shift such as that described would create a social environment in which human pleasure is supported, increased and celebrated, regardless of how and by whom it is achieved.

Group projects: A beginner’s field guide


ur first week is almost finished. After today, it’s just one more day (and who goes to class on Friday anyway?). We’ve all looked over our syllabi and filled out our calendars. We are ready to really dedicate ourselves and make the Dean’s list so Mom and Dad will leave us alone when we slack off in the spring. However, there could be a major barrier standing in our way to getting that 4.0. Group projects. Don’t get me wrong here. Group projects have their place in education. Once we enter the workforce, we must have the skills to interact with our fellow employees in order to complete a task quickly and efficiently for our employer. However, there is a major difference between working in groups to complete projects in school vs. during our professional career. Namely in the workplace you can fire the dude that makes Jeff Lebowski seem like a workaholic. Herein lies the problem with group projects at Iowa State — or any university for that matter — people are generally selfish and lazy. In your group projects this semester, you will have one of three different types of people.

By John.Andrus 1) The “Terminator.” This person will perform the bulk of the work. Not only will they show up to all the meetings, they will be pissed if anyone is five minutes late. They send a lot of emails. They will also harass you all weekend when you’ve already agreed to turn in your section of the project Monday. Much like Arnold in his most iconic role: It. Will. Not. Stop. Now, I’m not saying that this is good or bad. (It’s bad.) But in fairness, they are like this because they have to rely on the rest of the group to get the grade they want. You will spot this person quickly during your first group meeting. 2) The “Dude,” from the previously mentioned Big Lebowski. This person is “OK” with everything. You won’t get any complaints and, more importantly, you won’t get one single idea. There will be no creativity,

and the absolute bare-minimum of effort. When you break up the assignment, they will say “fine” or the always appreciated “whatever,” and every section of the project they do will be exactly “C” quality. Expect nothing more and nothing less. This person is wonderful at parties but terrible in group projects, since you’ll be redoing all of their work prior to turning it in. And finally, 3) The “Gob.” For anyone not familiar with “Arrested Development” — easily the best TV show ever produced — you pronounce that like the Biblical figure or really weird character from that early 90s sci-fi movie “Lawnmower Man,” Job (pronounced “Jobe”). This is the student that will blow a ton of smoke. They have a big personality and will tell everyone how they are an expert on everything, but then when it comes time to actually do the work they are mysteriously absent and end up driving their Segway to the mall. You really have to be careful of this boisterous person. Never assign them something important, because you will find out at the last minute that they haven’t even started on their section.

They’ll come up with a super great excuse and then ask you to “just finish it up, quick. No big deal.” If you know this going in, and are expecting it, then you won’t pull your hair out when it happens, because it will. So please — I beg of you — look closely over your calendar for the entire semester, and plan way ahead, because if you’re planning on getting help on that “group” project your creative professor thought would be fun, your mom and dad are going to be pissed when the grade report comes in mid-December.

Huntsman struggles under heavy bias of Fox News


n a convoluted early primary campaign, where candidates struggle to distinguish themselves, a lesser-known candidate has managed to bring the backhanded hammer of Fox News upon himself. Fox, which, according to Chris Wallace (a Fox News program anchor, in a quote given during an interview with Jon Stewart on June 19, 2011) is : “...the counterweight [to the alleged liberal bias of NBC]. I think they have a liberal agenda, and I think that we tell the other side of the story.” We can debate for days about who has what bias, whether it be liberal or conservative. However, let us simply take away from that quote, that at the very least, certain people on TV and behind the scenes at Fox News tend to “lean” conservative. So why is Fox subtly trying to scuttle Jon Huntsman’s (a Republican) campaign? People who are even slightly familiar with the ideas of rhetoric know that

even one minor vocabulary or detail change to a question or a statement can completely alter a subject’s perception of the statement. Before polls are conducted (at least, unbiased polls), pollsters go through a great deal to understand the syntax of the statement being posed, and even do test runs of the question to be sure that nothing about the question is prone to lead to bias. An example of how a few simple words can change how a question is perceived is found from the University of Purdue: Biased: Don’t you agree parking on campus is a problem? Unbiased: Is parking on campus a problem? In the first example, pressure is put on the respondent to answer positively (yes, it is a problem), in the second, that pressure is not present.

Now, assume that a Republican (as they are the only ones who can vote in the GOP Primary) is reading the article Fox News “Huntsman Unleashes on Fellow GOP Candidates.” During the article, Fox references the undisputed fact that Mr. Huntsman served as Ambassador to China. Which are they more likely to respond with a negative view to? Option 1: “... former Utah governor and President Obama’s Ambassador to China” Option 2: “... former Utah governor and Ambassador to China” If the person has a negative view of President Obama (which, as we are assuming they are Republican, is a safe bet), they may read the first option (the one that was published) and react negatively that he has any sort of association with, or was appointed by, Obama. By doing this, they have turned what should be a major strength (experience with America’s primary

emerging rival, China, something that no other candidate has), into a glaring flaw. But it doesn’t stop there. The same article goes on to quote Huntsman, in reference to fellow candidate Rick Perry, as saying “I’m not sure that the average voter out there is going to hear that treasonous remark and say that sounds like a presidential candidate, that sounds like someone who is serious on the issues.” While the quote is, in fact, correct, there is one subtle difference: They neglect to reference what Perry had originally said. When reading through Huntsman’s quote, it appears that he is accusing Perry of making a treasonous remark, in Huntsman’s judgment. To supporters and potential supporters of Perry, this would be an absolutely un-based

accusation, and it paints Huntsman as reckless and vengeful, and an enemy to the party favorites, as opposed to simply a competitor. In reality, it was Perry who alleged treason of finance chairman Ben Bernanke, instead of Huntsman. Huntsman was simply commenting on the content of Perry’s remark. These two examples (and others from the same article, which I will omit for the sake of brevity) don’t seem exactly like Fox is screaming from the mountaintops, but these slights, however subliminal, can destroy an already-moderate candidate’s hopes. Huntsman, it would appear, could draw broad interest from all spectrums, and unlike other candidates, is proud of his record, and could end up being a bastion of the

Republican party, if given the chance. However, Fox’s coverage can quickly lead him to the dreaded charge of being a RINO (Republican In Name Only), which, without having a well-established public persona (a la Mitt Romney or Sarah Palin), could be fatal. The way that news used to be, unbiased facts would be presented about an issue, and any conclusions and opinions would be left to the viewer to make. However, to Huntsman’s detriment (as well as the voting public’s), that doesn’t seem to be the status quo anymore. So the next time you’re reading an article, regardless of the source, pay attention to what is really being said in the background. It may surprise you.

While reusing someone’s trash might be noble, it’s also an intrusion into their privacy. I take it as very common for ISU students and Ames residents to assume that their garbage will be destroyed thanks to our power plant. And we citizens do have a few things we’d like to keep private. Unfortunately there is no law that protects the pri-

Looking at the front-page picture of the Iowa State Daily, it looks more like Robert Ewing is snooping through private papers than collecting recycling. Ewing should really consider if it is ethically proper to go through someone else’s garbage.

Corporate media outlets omit facts, truth I

suspect you have not heard, but last month the Government Accountability Office finished a year-long audit of the Federal Reserve. Two separate bills in the House and Senate (HR 1207 and S 604), sponsored by two of the most honest legislators in Congress, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), initiated this audit. It found that since 2007 the Federal Reserve has loaned large American and foreign banks — such as Citi Group, Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch — $16 trillion at 0 percent interest. Yes, you read correctly — $16 trillion! So, in effect, the Federal Reserve gambled with the value of the dollar just to help the banks that made poor bets on derivatives and doled out senseless bonuses. This is clearly favoritism of the most deplorable kind. These loans are so self-evidently unfair and unjust that any more discussion would be futile; instead, I would like to discuss why you probably have not heard about this, and why the mainstream corporate media has completely neglected this unprecedented story. As you may have gleaned, the American media is one of the most corrupt institu-

By Dan.Brown tions in the world; nearly every major outlet is owned by some ginormous for-profit corporate conglomeration. For example, the number of outlets that Rupert Murdoch owns is astounding (for a list of the few corporations that own almost every cable channel and newspaper in the country, visit The underlying problem here is that the content and information each corporate media outlet provides is determined by its parent companies’ business ventures or investments, and/or good ratings (which includes the fear of being attacked by other outlets). Consequently, if it is bad for business, truth and fact are often ignored; another scary consequence is that large corporations literally control public opinion — a terrific recipe for a few people to control the masses. I have found, for the record, only two mainstream outlets — The Washington Post and

CNBC — to have acknowledged that this audit actually occurred. Oddly enough, neither title of the two articles mentioned the $16 trillion loan, or the 0 percent interest rate; neither article mentioned the 0 percent interest rate either. Only The Washington Post mentioned “$16 trillion” in a quote from Sen. Sanders (if you can find another outlet — and I do not mean relatively unknown independent websites — that has addressed this issue, please email me or write in to the Daily). This kind of written coverage is very similar to the kind of television coverage where truth speakers rarely and quickly slip through the cracks, invariably to be clamped down, with no chance of their words spreading throughout the other outlets. As long as the Daily will have me, I will aim to discuss these kinds of things that are generally omitted by the corporate media. Steroids in baseball, Lindsay Lohan’s court cases, the trial of Casey Lee Anthony, or anything like this the corporate media has deemed all-important, will not be given much attention.

Doublespeak: Right-wing politics and theocracy GOP candidates were full of hypocrisy at Straw Poll.

Warren J. Blumenfeld, associate professor of curriculum and instruction

he very first thing that caught my eye as I entered the grounds of the Iowa Republican Party Presidential Straw Poll were three young children, I would guess between the ages of 4 to 7, wearing day-glow orange baseball caps with “NRA” scrawled atop, and round stickers announcing “GUNS SAVE LIVES” on their small T-shirts. The Straw Poll was held a mere three blocks from my home in Ames, and upon the campus of Iowa State University where I teach. I saw Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee grinning shoulder-to-shoulder for the line of press cameras. Inside Herman Cain’s tent, the candidate led a religious-style revival meeting proclaiming “Just like we do in the Southern Baptist church, say ‘Amen!’ Everybody shout ‘Amen.’ Now again, shout ‘Amen.’ And again, shout ‘Amen.’ That’s how it’s done!” A singer on stage in front of Ron Paul’s tent sang the Bob Dylan classic “The Times They Are a-Changin’,” and literally changed the lyric to “... Come senators, congressmen, Please heed the call, Don’t stand in the doorway, Don’t block Ron Paul ...” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley took the stage in the “Soapbox” tent and talked about how the tea

party speaks for a new and exciting grass-roots movement that is taking back the government for the people. So is Grassley from the grassroots, too? Singers on the tea party stage crooned themes of small government and, in particular, issues of liberty and freedom in front of their enormous and imposing red, white and blue sign that read “Guns, God, and the Constitution.” And tables representing every imaginable conservative organization from the Heritage Foundation to the Faith and Freedom Coalition distributed information, food, soft drinks and plenty of political memorabilia. As I walked through the extensive crowd, this virtual sea of white faces —old, young and in between — and as I saw the staffs of a relatively large group of presidential hopefuls lobbying my Iowa neighbors for their votes, I was conscious of a unanimity of message, a virtual lock-step thought and expression of ideas. And I was particularly reminded of the notion of “doublespeak”: that language of deliberate distortion and contradiction in the meaning of words.


Leaders on the political and theocratic right use terms like “liberty” and “freedom” to advance their agendas, which include such tenets as shrinking the size of government and giving more control to state and local governments; ending governmental regulation of the private sector; privatization of state and federal governmental services, industries, and institutions including schools; permanent incorporation of across-the-board non-progressive marginal tax rates; market-driven unfettered “free market” economies, which ultimately, they argue, will ensure individuals’ autonomy. But will their agenda enhance personal and national “liberty” and “freedom,” or rather, are they engaging in mere doublespeak? So, the NRA claims that “GUNS SAVE LIVES.” Groups claim they are “Pro Life,” well at least until birth. After that, I guess, infants and their families should be left on their own, while expecting no assistance from government. “Separation of [Religion] and State” means that the state must stay out of the affairs of religion, but religion, it sounds like, has a duty to enter into the affairs of government. Doublespeak? Yes, indeed! And the terms “freedom” and “liberty”? How “free” are we as individuals when the upper 10 percent of our population controls approximately 80 to 90 percent of the accumulated wealth and 85 percent of the stocks and bonds, and the Right’s agenda will only increase

this enormous imbalance? How “free” are we as individuals when corporate executives currently pay lower tax rates than their secretaries as the political right fights to maintain these advantages for the super rich? How “free” are we as individuals when 50 million people in our country go uninsured and their only form of health care is the hospital emergency room that the remainder of the population must pay for because our government will not provide a single-payer health care system, but instead, we all must accept the exorbitant profit-motive insurance premium rates of private health care insurers? The political and theocratic right has very skillfully manipulated the language and the discourse in its concentration of so-called “social issues” and thereby the demonization of those who favor women’s reproductive freedoms, marriage for same-sex couples, stem cell research, those who warn of the human component in global warming, and those who advocate for a compassionate immigration policy, maintenance of the social safety nets, for universal health care, for gun control, and other progressive issues. By supporting these conservative and ultra-conservative politicians and agendas, many people operate against and undermine their own economic self-interests. We all must, therefore, expose the language for what it is: doublespeak.

Fawcett’s BK introduces oatmeal to morning menu son ordered to rehab in heroin case By Sarah Skidmore The Associated Press

By The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — The son of actor Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett has been ordered to spend a year in intense rehab after pleading no contest Wednesday to heroin possession. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz also sentenced 26-yearold Redmond O’Neal to serve five years on probation. District Attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison said O’Neal could be sent to prison for up to three years if he violates probation. Redmond O’Neal also pleaded no contest to being a felon in possession of a firearm when he was arrested Aug. 2 after a traffic stop. Ryan O’Neal attended his son’s sentencing Wednesday. Attorney Richard Pintal, who represented the younger O’Neal, said the sentence recognizes his client is facing serious addiction and medical issues and that treatment was more appropriate.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Oatmeal is the new burger. Burger King, the world’s secondlargest hamburger chain, added oatmeal to its breakfast menu this week, joining a slew of other chains that have brought the hot cereal out of the cupboard and into restaurants and drive-thrus. Burger King says it is trying to offer customers a healthier breakfast option beyond its sausage croissant sandwiches and french toast dipping sticks. It’s also an attempt by the struggling chain to catch up to competitors and boost sagging sales by appealing to customers beyond its base of burgers-and-fries fans. “We are definitely looking to broaden our target and our audience,” said Leo Leon, vice president of global innovation for Burger King Corp. Breakfast is becoming the most important meal of the day for restaurants __ accounting for nearly 60 percent of traffic growth between 2005 and 2010__ and oatmeal is the latest battleground. It’s low-cost, easily prepared and doesn’t spoil

quickly. It also appeals to consumers who want quick, affordable food that they perceive as healthier than the typical fast-food breakfast fare. Starbucks Corp., the world’s biggest coffee chain, said oatmeal has become its most popular breakfast item since it began offering it in 2008. Last year, McDonald Corp., the world’s largest burger chain, added oatmeal to its menu. Fast food

chain Chik-fil-A and Denny’s casual dining restaurants also recently have started offering oatmeal. Oatmeal has a good-for you reputation, but McDonald’s has faced some criticism for its oatmeal’s 4.5 grams of fat and 260 to 290 calories. That’s roughly equal to the number of calories in its own hamburger or cheeseburger respectively. By comparison, Burger King’s oatmeal,

which was created by Quaker Oats Co., has 110 to 270 calories and 1 to 4 grams of fat. Even though oatmeal is popular now, experts say it’s unclear if the trend will stick. “People don’t go to Burger King or McDonald’s for their oatmeal,” said Steve West, an analyst at Stifel Nicolaus. “They go for an Egg McMuffin.” For Burger King, oatmeal is part of a larger strategy. Burger King said about 10 to 15 percent of its customer visit during breakfast. And the fast-food chain sells the majority of its food to-go or at the drive-thru. So it was critical for the chain to find a convenient new breakfast option. The company also is eager to replicate the success of McDonald’s, which has reinvented itself as a more hip and healthy place to eat — remodeling stores, offering wireless access and introducing new salads, smoothies and fancy coffee drinks. That’s helped it bring in higher-income customers rather than just the young males that fast-food chains typically depend on — a demographic hit particularly hard by unemployment in the weak economy.

Beaten Giants fan has slight recovery setback SAN FRANCISCO — The family of the San Francisco Giants fan severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium said he has suffered a slight setback in his recovery. Bryan Stow’s family members posted on their website that the setback occurred when a spinal fluid test came back positive for urinary tract and staph infections. He’s been given antibiotics and an ice vest to cool him from a high fever. Doctors at San Francisco General Hospital have described Stow’s recovery as filled with ups and downs since the March attack. He’s currently in serious condition. In their posting, Stow’s family also addressed the violence during Saturday’s football game between the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. They say they had hoped Stow’s story would teach people that violence at sporting events is “unnecessary and wrong.” The Associated Press


Colts bring veteran QB out of retirement INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are bringing one veteran quarterback out of retirement. The Colts agreed to terms Wednesday with Kerry Collins, making him the likely starter in case Peyton Manning hasn’t completely recovered from offseason neck surgery when the season opens Sept. 11. Collins said he has been given no indication that Manning won’t play at Houston. “Hopefully, Peyton will be back, but if he’s not maybe I can be one of the guys that can help this ball club,” Collins said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday night. “The biggest draw for me coming here was just being with a team that I have a lot of respect for and a lot of history with, and really to be with a great team and play with one of greatest quarterbacks of all time.” Collins agreed to a one-year contract and acknowledged he could be talked into staying longer than 2011. Not everyone in the Colts locker room is enamored with the move. “We don’t even know him, we ain’t vanilla, man, we ain’t no simple offense,” said receiver Reggie Wayne. “So for him to come in here and be the starter, I don’t see it. I think that’s a step back.” Colts coach Jim Caldwell wasn’t available to talk with reporters about Collins, a player he coached at Penn State, because the official announcement didn’t come until after practice. “He is a veteran quarterback who has started many games and he brings dimension and depth to the quarterback position, which will be helpful,” Caldwell said. “He is familiar with our division and will make a great addition to our roster.” The Associated Press

File photo: Iowa State Daily The Iowa Corn Growers Association announced Tuesday it will change the new Cy-Hawk trophy it unveiled last week after overwhelming criticism from fans. Without the action of a couple football fans more than 30 years ago to revive the series between Iowa State and Iowa, there would be no trophy to quarrel about.

Series promotes state rivalry

By Jake.Calhoun The Cy-Hawk series — the annual rivalry between Iowa and Iowa State — has garnered a lot of attention with the recent unveiling of a new trophy by the Iowa Corn Growers Association last week. The trophy, which depicts an Iowa family out in the corn fields, has seen overwhelming criticism, compelling Iowa Corn to change the trophy, as announced at a media event Tuesday. Without the action of a couple fans more than 30 years ago, though, there would be no trophy to quarrel about. “[Iowa and Iowa State] did not play each other for 43 years,” said Bob Uetz, Ames High teacher and architect of the former Cy-Hawk Trophy. “In ‘77, we went up to the game. It was the first time they played in 43 years; there were a bunch of us that were obviously just very pleased and wanted to do something to promote it because at that point, it was very

political.” After the 1977 game ending the 43-year absence of the rivalry, which Iowa won 12-10, Uetz and a couple friends sprouted the idea of making a trophy for the series to legitimize the rivalry for years to come. “We were just a group of fans that wanted to promote the series and wanted them to play every year,” Uetz said. “We thought it was a great thing for the state, the fans, both schools and so on.” The group had trouble sanctioning the trophy for the series until learning then-Gov. Robert Ray’s two daughters attended both schools separately. “He’d sit on one side of the stands the first half and the other side of the stands the second half,” Uetz said. “We thought, ‘Perfect, here’s a popular governor not taking a stand one way or the other.’” Uetz and Co. managed to get Ray to agree to present the trophy, which had been a staple of the series until this past year. Hy-Vee had sponsored the series since 2004 until giving it up to Iowa Corn this past April.

Iowa Corn was presented with the opportunity to acquire sponsorship of the series due to its success in its sponsoring of the Cy-Hawk Gameday tailgating event, said Kevin Ross, vice president of Iowa Corn. Ruth Comer, spokeswoman for Hy-Vee, said both schools approached the West Des Moines-based company with the news that Iowa Corn had expressed interest in assuming sponsorship of the series. “We decided there were probably some other things we could probably do, maybe try to mix it up a little bit, just with different sponsorships,” Comer said. “So at that time we said that was fine as long as they had another sponsor that we would do our sponsorship of the schools in a different way.” Even though Hy-Vee will be pursuing other interests, Ross had nothing but nice things to say about his company’s predecessor. “Hy-Vee did a commendable job of putting this series on a different level,” Ross said. “We really respect what they did with the CyHawk series.”


Jantz keeps his focus on winning By Jeremiah.Davis Call him Charlie Sheen. Now that he’s been named the starting quarterback for the Iowa State Cyclones, Steele Jantz is focused only on winning. “My goal from day one was to just do whatever I can to win,” Jantz said. “Part of that was becoming the starter. But now that I am the starter, it’s still doing whatever I can to win, just in different ways.” Jantz spoke to the media for the first time since being named the starter Saturday, and now that the decision on quarterback has been made, it’s back to business for the Cyclones. “Now it’s just all about getting the team ready to play and not the QB competition,” Jantz said. “Our attitude even before I was named the starter was just everyone getting ready for the season, so that’s still the same thing. That’s kind of the theme of the team right now.” Coach Paul Rhoads hasn’t noticed any significant changes in how the offense has operated since the announcement. He did say, however, that Jantz has been “better than good” in the days since he was named starter. “He and Jared [Barnett] both continue to progress,” Rhoads said. “I don’t know if I detect more confidence, but they’re playing with confidence, and that’s what you’d expect. I see more leadership out of him, and I think part of that goes [with] when you’re given the keys, you better drive the car.” Rhoads went on to say

that he believes Jantz gets along “extremely well” with his teammates, and believes that can only help the team’s and his confidence. Jantz also addressed his leadership style and camaraderie Monday. “Obviously as a quarterback I’ve got to be the leader,” Jantz said. “So I’m still going to continue to lead and become a better leader every day.” Jantz’s effort is definitely not lost on his teammates. They see the work he puts in, and it shows on the field. “Steele’s thing is just hard work,” said wide receiver Aaron Horne, who played with Jantz at City College of San Francisco. “He just works hard every day, nonstop.” Horne went on to say that Jantz does whatever he can to not give up on a play and make it work despite the circumstances. He did say specifically that Jantz has improved on things since their junior college days. “Honestly I would have to say he’s becoming a complete quarterback now,” Horne said. “Before, he was good, he had certain traits he was good at, [but] now he’s joining all [of his talents] together and becoming a complete quarterback.” For Jantz, though, it always comes back to winning. That’s the bottom line for the junior college transfer who has become the new face and leader of the Cyclones. “That’s why I was brought in here, that’s why I came,” Jantz said. “Not just to play, but to win. That’s been my focus from day one.”

New assistant coach brings ‘winning traditions’ By Clint.Cole This season, the ISU hockey team will welcome its new assistant coach, Kyle McDonald. McDonald comes in replacing former assistant coach Brian Wierson, who spent the past four years with Cyclone hockey. More than 50 coaches from around North America and Europe applied for the position, but McDonald immediately established himself as the ideal candidate because of his coaching experience and success in Canada. Previously, McDonald served as the Bantam coordinator and coach at the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, Canada. “He’s bringing great coaching experience and knowledge to our program,” said coach Al Murdoch. “I

would have to say that we’re bringing in a coach with winning traditions, and McDonald that’s what we’re after.” McDonald plans on spending the next two years getting used to things as a coach in the United States. “I’m here to learn and to get an idea of the collegiate system in the USA,” McDonald said. “Dr. Murdoch is one of the top guys to learn that from.” Looking down the road, McDonald said that he wants to be a head coach somewhere in four or five years. “We’ve had a circle of coaches that have filled this position in the past, and all have gone on to bigger and better things, all associated with hockey,” Murdoch said.

McDonald comes to Iowa State with a solid academic past. He studied sports management from 2002 to 2004 at Selkirk College in Castlegar, got a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the University of Lethbridge in 2007 and is currently working on a Master of Science in sports psychology at the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. McDonald is looking forward to coaching an older group of players at Iowa State. “The group of players are a little more mature than what I’ve had in the past whether that be junior or Bantam,” McDonald said. “I still think the philosophy is the same where us coaches are here to help them develop and then maybe in four or five years they can move on into their chosen field of endeavor or maybe professional hockey.”

“Grab a few friends and have a good time!”

ISU women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly is back in Ames after coaching the Team USA women’s basketball team to a gold medal at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China. Fennelly and the USA women went a perfect 6-0 in Shenzhen, capping their international trip with a convincing 101-66 win over Taiwan. It is the fourth time Fennelly has won a gold medal coaching with USA basketball. However, this was his first experience as the head man in international basketball. “Someone told me one time that the head coach and the assistant coach is one seat over, but that’s a big move and that’s a big seat to move into,” Fennelly said. “It was a lot of fun and certainly an experience that I’ll remember forever.” Though Fennelly said he was concerned about the team’s lack of a true post player before the games began, his team often enjoyed a height advantage. The average height on the Team USA roster was 6-foot-1, whereas the silver medalists, Taiwan, had an average height of 5-foot-9. The team also averaged 22.8 rebounds per game. Team USA was led in scoring and rebound-

ing by Elena Delle Donne, of the University of Delaware, with 15.7 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. “The leaders of our team were Nneka Ogwumike, of Stanford, and Skylar Diggins from Notre Dame, and I’ve had them before as an assistant coach so they knew my personality, so that helped. And they’re both really good players,” Fennelly said. “Then Elena Delle Donne from Delaware was our best player and players respect other great players, and so those were the three that we counted on. It’s easy to see why those teams are winning when you see those three kids.” The team outscored its opponents by an average of 45 points per game, with the closest call coming in a 79-67 semifinal victory against Australia. Fennelly noted that one of the highlights for him and the team was seeing the support they received and the sense pride that instilled. “It gives you a great sense of pride to walk around in your USA stuff when those people are excited to see you,” Fennelly said. “There were people that may not even like women’s basketball but they love their country. Every game was a sellout and it was incredible to see the crowds, people waving their flags, that made it really cool.”

Cyclones off to fast start, prepare for Green Bay By Dylan.Montz After racing out to a 2-0 start and allowing no goals so far this season, the Cyclone soccer team will take on the University of Green Bay in a non-conference match in Green Bay, Wis. Iowa State has shut out its first two opponents of the season and coach Wendy Dillinger said that she has been impressed with defensive play so far. “[It is] definitely one of our strong points,” Dillinger said. “They are doing well. We are trying to work in some youngsters and get some experience back there, but we are pretty happy with what our back line is doing.” Sophomore forward Brittany Morgan credits the Cyclones’ fast start to the amount of effort being put in during practice. “[The practices] just consist of hard training, lots of conditioning and running off the ball with lots of movement trying to get ourselves ready for the challenges that we have coming up the next two weekends,” Morgan said. As for Green Bay, the Phoenix have a weapon in sophomore defender, Hekla

Palmadottir, who scored two goals in Green Bay’s opening game against the University of Nebraska-Omaha. “She will be somebody we address to our team in terms of, ‘This is somebody that you need to keep an eye on,’” Dillinger said. “You can’t lose track of her and you can’t give her any room, so as a team, if one of our backs is matched up on her, we need teammates to help.” Even with a player like Palmadottir on the opposing team, sophomore midfielder Emily Goldstein said that one player won’t change the game plan for the Cyclones. “We don’t want to just focus on one player,” Goldstein said. “We are going to have to adjust to that since she is good on the ball and can finish when she gets it, but we won’t change our game. “We are just going to keep playing our style, and our defense is strong enough to be able to handle anybody, it doesn’t matter if they score two goals or haven’t scored any. We try to play in practice like we do in games so our players are prepared for games.” The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Green Bay, Wis.

Iowa State gets ready for NIU Invitational By David.Merrill Iowa State begins the postVictoria Henson/Ashley Mass era Friday when the Cyclones take on Cincinnati in the NIU Invitational. Replacing two AllAmericans is no easy task, but the Cyclones (20-8, 13-7 Big 12 last season) have reloaded on talent, earning them the No. 25 recruiting class and the No. 18 preseason rank. Freshman outside hitter Victoria Hurtt has shown great potential. She finished with 18 kills in four games during the team’s Cardinal and Gold scrimmage. “She competes,” said coach Christy-Johnson Lynch. “That’s her best quality — she can terminate. If you have someone that can terminate, she’s going to be out there. She’s doing a really nice job on the left side for us.” Sophomore outside hitter Hannah Willms was voted Big

12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year. Senior outside hitter Rachel Hockaday will play in her first official match since tearing her ACL early last season. While Johnson-Lynch saw some good things during the team’s scrimmage, there is still room for improvements. “We have to get our middles going on the slides a little bit better,” Johnson-Lynch said. “We have to make sure our outsides are getting kills in transition. We tend to not get a great approach and hit low in the blocks.” The Bearcats (30-6, 13-1 Big East last season) are picked to finish third in the Big East conference. They are the defending Big East regularseason champions. Middle blocker Jordanne Scott is a key returning starter for Cincinnati. Scott was voted an AVCA All-American for the 2010 season and was also a 2010 All-Big East team member.

She returns as a preseason All-Big East member. During the NIU Invitational, Iowa State will also go against IUPUI and Northern Illinois. NIU is picked to win the MAC for the first time in program history and IUPUI is coming off a 8-22 season. “This weekend will be very, very tough for us,” JohnsonLynch said. “Northern Illinois is picked to win the MAC for the first time ever and Cincinnati is a very good team. They traditionally have a great program.” Iowa State is still trying to finalize its lineup. That, Johnson-Lynch said, will be solidified after the first few weeks of the season.

Rebel envoy: $5 billion in assets urgently needed Frozen funds are required for vital public services. The Associated Press DOHA, Qatar — Libyan rebels urgently need world leaders to release at least $5 billion in frozen assets to pay state salaries and maintain vital services like medical care a senior Libyan diplomat said Wednesday after talks with Western and Arab envoys. The figure is higher than previous estimates on the rebels’ immediate financial needs. The diplomat, Aref Ali Nayed, suggested that the rebels’ transition team is expanding its short-term goals to include projects like clearing mines and disarming civilians as it takes over from the regime of Moammar Gadhafi. “We cannot wait for this money,” said Nayed, the Libyan ambassador to the United

Arab Emirates and spokesman for a rebel “stabilization team” working out of Dubai. The West tied up Libya’s assets as part of the effort to cripple Gadhafi’s regime. Nayed urged the U.N. Security Council and others to unblock the funds by early next month or risk leaving the rebel leadership unable to meet public needs. Nayed said these include paying state workers, keeping hospitals running and repairing facilities of Libya’s critical oil industry. “It is incumbent upon us to ensure that the National Transitional Council is given every material and moral support to carry out its mission,” said Khaled al-Attiyah, Qatar’s minister of state for international cooperation, after hosting envoys from the United States, European nations and Turkey, which is hosting a major international conference on Libya on Thursday. In London, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said

the U.N. Security Council will vote this week on a resolution releasing billions of dollars in frozen Libyan assets.

Qatar is a leading Arab backer of Libya’s rebels and took part in NATO-led military operations to weaken

Gadhafi militarily and politically. Earlier Wednesday, Qatar’s emir, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa

Al Thani, met with Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby to discuss Libya and efforts to aid the rebel leadership.

Libyan rebels hunt Gadhafi, try to secure Tripoli By Ben Hubbard and Karin Laub The Associated Press

Photo: Sergey Ponomarev/The Associated Press A rebel fighter walks inside the house of Al-Saadi Gadhafi the son of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi in Tripoli, LIbya, on Wednesday.

Rebels, looters target Gadhafi family homes

By Karin Laub The Associated Press TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s son alSaadi liked fast cars, yachts and soccer, and his beachfront villa was stocked with his expensive toys. His sister Aisha lived in a two-story mansion with an indoor pool and sauna. As rebels took control of the Libyan capital over the weekend, the luxurious homes — symbols of the Gadhafi family’s excesses — were among their first targets. After driving out the guards, rebels trashed and looted the villas and neighbors wandered through the wreckage Wednesday expressing their anger at the Gadhafi family’s wealth and ostentatious tastes. “I can’t even believe what I am seeing,” said Muftah Shubri, a resident of Tripoli’s western Nofleen neighborhood, as he walked across Aisha’s lawn to the large covered pool where a ball and a small rubber boat still floated in the water. Gadhafi’s 42-year rule over Libya had increasingly become a family business, with the dictator divvying up key spheres of interest, from oil to security, among his six sons. In recent years, the Gadhafi offspring had been involved in a series of scandals: Hannibal got arrested in 2008 in Switzerland for mistreating his servants in a Geneva luxury hotel and Muatassim reportedly paid $1 million for a private New Year’s concert by

Beyonce. Al-Saadi, a 38-year-old soccer aficionado, was described in a 2009 WikiLeaks cable from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli as having a troubled past, including run-ins with police in Europe, drug and alcohol abuse and excessive partying. On Monday, a day after thousands of rebels rode into Tripoli, about 200 people stormed al-Saadi’s home on the Mediterranean, said Seifallah Gneidi, a 23-year-old Tripoli rebel who participated in the looting. Gneidi said he took a large bottle of gin, a toothbrush with a gilded handle and a pair of Diesel jeans. “We wanted to have the stuff that he had,” Gneidi said, a Kalashnikov slung over his shoulder. He said rebels are not condoning looting of private property, and only allow the wrecking of symbols of the Gadhafi family’s abuse of power. Gneidi said al-Saadi had four cars — a BMW, an Audi, a white Lamborghini and a Toyota — that were all driven off during the ransacking. His claim about the fate of the cars could not be verified. A large painting of a yellow Lamborghini decorated the back wall of his covered parking area. In an office area in the villa, reporters saw large piles of catalogues for yachts and cars. A catalog by the firm Benetti had a yellow handwritten Post-it note attached listing the price for a 30-meter-long yacht as 7

million euros. A DVD with gay porn entitled “Boyz Tracks” slipped out of the stack of documents. Business cards were scattered on the floor for a firm called “Natural Selection” that listed al-Saadi as partner and executive producer with an address on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The looters left behind a black cloth, apparently the back of a “director’s chair,” that read, in green: “Executive Producer al-Saadi Gadhafi.” Al-Saadi must have been concerned about his safety. A long underground passage with thick concrete walls led from a second villa he was building to the street. The complex also had a grass soccer pitch. Al-Saadi, who was seen as a poor soccer player was involved in one of Libya’s soccer teams, Al-Ahly. Al-Saadi also headed Libya’s Football Federation. Next to the field stood a barbecue pit and two tents, including one that housed guards and was filled with ammunition, said Gneidi. AlSaadi also kept dogs and had his own kennel with four cages, one decorated with pictures of Dobermans. If al-Saadi had the reputation of a reckless troublemaker, the 35-year-old Aisha cultivated the image of caring about ordinary Libyans. However, her neighbors said that several years ago, a small neighborhood clinic was razed to make room for her home.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyans hunting Moammar Gadhafi offered a $2 million bounty on the fallen dictator’s head and amnesty for anyone who kills or captures him as rebels battled Wednesday to clear the last pockets of resistance from the capital Tripoli. While some die-hard loyalists kept up the fight to defend Gadhafi, his support was crumbling by the hour. His deputy intelligence chief defected, and even his foreign minister said his 42-year rule was over. A defiant Gadhafi vowed from hiding to fight on “until victory or martyrdom,” in an audio message early Wednesday. He may have little choice. Asked by the British broadcaster Channel 4 if a negotiated settlement or safe pas-

sage for Gadhafi from Libya was still possible, Foreign Minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi said: “It looks like things have passed this kind of solution.” Rebel leaders began setting up a new government in the capital. Their interim administration, the National Transitional Council, has been based in the eastern city of Benghazi, which fell under rebel control shortly after the outbreak of widespread protests in February. “Members of the council are now moving one by one from Benghazi to Tripoli,” said Mansour Seyf al-Nasr, the Libyan opposition’s new ambassador to France. Rebel officials are eager to prove they can bring a stable political future to Libya, and that their movement is more than an often-fractious collection of tribes, ethnicities and semiautonomous militias. Mahmoud Jibril, the head of the opposition

government, outlined plans for a new constitution and elections and said officials were talking to the U.N. about sending up to 200 monitors to help ensure security in Tripoli. But the capital was far from pacified. A day after rebels captured Gadhafi’s vast Bab al-Aziziya compound, the symbolic center of his regime, loyalists were firing into the compound from an adjacent neighborhood where intense clashes broke out. Pro-regime snipers cut off the road to the airport. Four Italian journalists were kidnapped on the highway to Tripoli around the city of Zawiya, 30 miles west of the capital. Tripoli’s streets were largely empty of civilians. Rebels manned checkpoints every few hundred yards, but little could be seen beyond the debris of days of fighting and weeks of accumulated garbage.

4 Italian journalists abducted in Libya

By Frances D’Emilio The Associated Press

ROME — Suspected regime loyalists kidnapped four Italian journalists and killed their local driver in Libya as the group traveled down a highway to Tripoli on Wednesday, the Italian foreign ministry said. The ministry said the four were abducted on a stretch of highway between Zawiya, a town 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Tripoli, and the Libyan capital. The kidnapped include two reporters from Milan daily Corriere della Sera, one from Turin’s La Stampa and one from Avvenire, the daily of the Italian Catholic bishops Conference, the ministry said. Information also emerged on Wednesday that two French journalists were wounded in the fighting around Moammar Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli. Corriere della Sera said on its website that the four Italian journalists were stopped by a group of civilians, who then “handed them over to mili-

tary men faithful to Gadhafi who brought them to a private house,” and that first contact from the Avvenire journalist came hours later. Avvenire’s foreign news editor, Fabio Carminati, told Sky TG24 TV in a telephone interview from the paper’s Milan office that its reporter, Claudio Monici, called the newsroom to say all four journalists were OK and had been taken to a house. “Monici said ‘We’re OK. Call our families. Call the foreign ministry. Call our papers,” Carminati said, adding that Monici’s voice sounded strong. Monici told his desk “’We were roughed up, they stole our possessions, our money, our phones,’” Carminati said, summing up the call of a few minutes. The editor said that Monici was allowed to use a phone by members of a family of the house they were taken to. Avvenire said it wasn’t clear where the four are being held. But the Italian news agency ANSA quoted the Italian consul, Guido De Sanctis, in

Benghazi, Libya, saying that the four journalists are being held in an apartment between Bab al-Aziziya and Rixos Hotel, from where dozens of foreign journalists were released Wednesday after being held captive for days by pro-government gunmen. De Sanctis is quoted as saying

ing out the kidnapping were Gadhafi loyalists. Its “crisis” office was “trying to reconstruct in detail the circumstances of how the kidnapping happened and is exploring all channels useful for the most rapid solution possible of the affair,” the ministry said in a statement. Italy’s journalist association identified the other abducted journalists as Elisabetta Rosaspina and Giuseppe Saracina of Corriere della Sera and Domenico Quirico of La Stampa. Carminati said Monici had arrived in Libya on Tuesday. Regarding the French journalists, France 2 television said its French cameraman, Bruno Girodon, was shot on Wednesday near Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli. He was not in grave danger and will be repatriated, France 2 said on its website. Paris Match Magazine confirmed on its website that French photographer Alvaro Canovas was shot in the thigh on Tuesday. It said Canovas was in stable condition and returning to France.

Marching band gets a new look

By Basil Rain Ames247 Writer The ISU Cyclone Football “Varsity” Marching Band is alive and kicking all around campus. Practice is held at the field by the campus cemetery and the Armory, and the sound of the drum line can be heard from Lake LaVerne. This year, the marching band is going through some major changes. The band will be led by a new director, Dr. Steve Smyth. Smyth graduated from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in music education. He also has his master’s degree in wind conducting performance and pedagogy from

Oklahoma State University. He is currently getting his DMA in conducting at the University of Kansas. This is his first year conducting and directing the ISU marching band. “It’s the first time we’ve ever had an alumni of the marching band be the director for the marching band.” Dr. Michael Golemo said when asked about the new change to the band. As the leadership of the band is changing, the group’s uniforms are also getting a reboot after 15 years. The Stanbury Company took on the challenge of their biggest order of the year by taking on 400 new ISU uniforms. “[Everybody] is getting new uniforms this year: flags, marching band, as well as the directors,” Golemo said. He also added that every member of the band will be getting new rain coats as well. The band plans on premiering the new uniforms for the first game on Sept. 3, against Northern Iowa at home. “[The marching band uniform] colors are going to reflect what the athletic department uses, so we’re going to feel more a part of everything,” Golemo said. “I think the fans are going to enjoy seeing the current logos prominently displayed on the band member uniforms.”

Time to march in bold Cyclone style After 15 years, the ISU Cyclone Football “Varsity” Marching Band will be getting new uniforms. While the previous uniforms were primarily white with red accents, the new uniforms will be all red, with yellow detail and the new Iowa State logo on the front and shoulders. On the back, the latest mascot logo will be prominently displayed. “The uniforms will feature the colors of the athletic department: cardinal and gold. It will feature the Iowa State logo on the front,” said Dr. Michael Golemo, Director of Bands. “On both of the shoulders, it will say Iowa State.” Golemo said the uniforms are currently being built, and will be ready three days before the first game. Golemo also said the funding for the new uniforms came from a few different places. “An agreement with the athletic department helped pay for the uniforms, as well as a generous pledge from two of our band alumni, Harlan and Amy Asmus, which helped make these uniforms a reality,” Golemo said.

Meet the Cyclone Marching Band Drum line Before school starts, all 29 members of the drum line practice around Lake LaVerne. Before practicing the heavy stuff, the drum line always starts off with a warm-up. On game days they also warm up to cadences, which are melodic or harmonic configuration that creates a sense of repose or resolution. By being together every day, for hours at a time, there is a lot of team bonding. “We usually get lunch and dinner together,” Sesker said.

Brass and wind

Photo: Nick Nelson/Iowa State Daily Members of the drum line practice together as a section on Friday near the practice field outside of the Communications Building. This year’s drum line includes 29 members.

From 4:30 to 6 p.m., all 150 members of the winds section and 145 members of the brass section get together and practice as a whole with the band. “Ten minutes before practice, we do a sectional where we do our warm-ups,” said Tony LaBat, junior in music and piccolo player. “[For warm-ups,] we do a lot of stretching of our arms. We also have a breathing gym that helps strengthen our diaphragm.” LaBat said the winds team tries to meet up once a week for bonding time, including occasional grill-outs. “[Before practice] we do basic lip slurs to warm up our lips,” said Erin Kelley, senior in food science and brass section leader.”We get together 10 minutes before practice and do them together.”

Kelley said the brass section bonds by getting together for dinner and lunch “all the time,” and the group tries to celebrate holidays together.

Flag and baton Alongside the rest of the band, members of the flag and baton sections twirl their way through practice. Every day, the flag section gets together to practice with the band, and in sectionals. “We try [in sectionals] to synchronize our flag holding,” said Kate Chen, senior in animal science. “ We do a lot of stretches and basic spins.” For bonding time, the group gets together to have dinner and play games weekly. Only two women make up the baton section. Emily Bright, senior in child, adult and family services, has been at Iowa State for five seasons. Practices for baton are every day from 4:30 to 6 p.m. with the band, and they have a sectional before full practice. The two twirlers also have an extra practice time on Saturdays before games . “[Our warm-ups] are lots of stretching and throwing and catching of the baton,” Bright said. “[Rehearsal] itself is a huge team bonding activity. We’re one big giant family, [members of the band] count together and step together. We all bond really well.”

Arts and crafts

Memorial Union’s Workspace emphasizes community By Sarah Binder Ames247 Writer The Memorial Union’s own multimedia arts studio, the Workspace, has released its schedule of fall classes and has resumed full hours for another semester of creativity. New this semester is an emphasis on service and community collaboration.

“Jumpstart Your Creativity,” on Oct. 3, will feature creative problem-solving ideas, and between Sept. 11 and Sept. 21 you can make a “create peace” T-shirt in the Workspace for $2 in honor of 11 days of global unity. The popular “Little Dresses for Africa” workshop will also return in September and October. The regular roster of classes in sev-

eral media has also returned in full swing. Basket weaving and jewelry making are popular each year. For those not interested in taking a class, the Workspace offers studio space to anyone in the community on a pay-by-day basis. Fall hours are 2 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Workspace For new and old students alike, navigating the MU’s multiple basements isn’t easy. Start on the first floor, which is the same level as the food court. Head toward the east entrance — past Panda Express and the

East Student Office Space. Once in the entryway, turn right. Take the stairs down. When you see a silvery sculpture of a woman stepping out of a sheet of metal, you know you’re close.

Local band

Mumford’s set to perform in Ames again By Vincent Geerts Ames247 Writer After six weeks on the road, its longest tour yet, local band Mumford’s is excited to bring its act back home. Frontman Nate Logsdon said the band is more than ready to return home and play a show for its hometown fans. “All the time away really just reinforced how much we love Ames,” Logsdon said. “We’re going to add it all up and put on the most energetic and wild show we possibly can.” DG’s Tap House will host the band’s return show Saturday, featuring many local artists and close friends of members of Mumford’s. Doors open at 5 p.m., and only a half hour later, Longshadowmen kicks off a long evening. Isaac Norman, founding member of the band, said he anticipates Mumford’s return.

“I’m acutely aware that Ames is about to become something truly spectacular, and it’s because of Nate and Mumford’s,” Norman said. “We’re really excited to start the evening off for them.” Strong Like Bear will take the stage next, just before Mumford’s first set. Logsdon said the first set will contain new material and a variety of songs, while their set beginning at midnight will be “pure rock ‘n roll, sweaty and over the top.” Local acts Ladysoal, Nuclear Rodeo and Utopia Park will also take the stage throughout the long evening. Sharika Soal of Ladysoal said she was happy to share the stage again. “Mumford’s is an experience and not just a show,” Soal said. “After they’ve been on the road so long, I think it’s going to be something mindblowing.”

Graphic: Brigitte Fleckenstein/Iowa State Daily Mumford’s has performed in many locations across the Midwest and East Coast. The band will return to Ames to perform Saturday.

Boris Yeltsin has been rising to success. Entitled “Broom,” the album earned favorable reviews from sources such as Pitchfork and Spin Magazine. The band’s latest album, “Let it Sway,” was released last August on Polyvinyl Records.

The band was featured on the cover of CMJ magazine and pictured in Rolling Stone.

Xiu Xiu Avant-garde group Xiu Xiu is also signed to Polyvinyl Records. The brainchild of singer/songwriter Jamie Stewart, Xiu Xiu has changed stylistically over the years as he has collaborated with different

artists and endured struggles. Xiu Xiu’s latest, “Dear God, I Hate Myself,” experimented with video game sound effects produced by a Nintendo DS.

SUB names Carver Hall home of Cyclone Cinema By Cole Komma Ames247 Writer

Madison Welterlen

Q: What characters do you love to play?

By Kegan Luczycki Ames247 Writer

A: I don’t have a specific, anything I can get. In “Gypsy,” I did this rough New York accent and that was really fun.

Madison Welterlen, senior in performing arts and music, will be performing in ISU Theatre’s upcoming show “Hedda Gabler.” Welterlen has also performed in “Gypsy,” “Six Characters” and “Twelfth Night” at Iowa State.

Q: When did you know you wanted to be an actress? A: One of the things that made me really decide to do acting was Indiana Jones. I know it’s weird, but I wanted to be like a marine archeologist and I love Harrison Ford. Who doesn’t love Harrison Ford? Then I was thinking, “Well, do I want to be Indiana Jones or do I want to pretend to be Indiana Jones? If you do acting, you can do both.”

Know a student who would make an interesting profile? Let us know at ames247@

Q: How do you memorize all those lines? A: Hanging upside down in a chair. I don’t know if it’s the blood rushing to my head or if it’s a different place to be at. It’s surprising how much you can cram in and how quickly it leaves.

Q: What is your plan after graduating? A: Hopefully work with a company, summer stock job. I’m thinking of a city like Chicago.

Q: What makes you nervous when performing? A: Oh, this makes me pretty nervous. It’s a different feeling being on stage, then with people. I’m still kind of shy. Being on stage is a different thing. That might be one reason why it’s so fascinating to me.

When ISU students needed a break from studying for various classroom-related tasks, they often went to the Memorial Union to attend a free film provided by the Student Union Board. With the start of a new school year, SUB felt it was in students’ best interest to change Cyclone Cinema’s location from various places in the MU to the more consistent location of Carver 101 classroom. The location in Carver eliminates the confusion previously found with the frequently changing location for viewing films experienced in the MU, said Alec Thompson, junior in journalism and mass communication and coordinator of Cyclone Cinema. “Showing the movies out of Carver gave us a chance to establish more screenings,” Thompson said.

Cyclone Cinema will now have eight screenings of each film, at 7 and 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, as well as 4 and 7 p.m. on Sundays. “The process for choosing which films to view is relatively simple,” Thompson said. Cyclone Cinema strives to show the most successful and widely appealing movies it can. “Part of our draw is showing movies before they even come out on DVD, so we try to screen them to the students as soon as they become available to universities,” Thompson said. For those who love the classics, there has been talk of late-night showings of old favorites. Free films on campus have been around as long as he can remember, Thompson recalled, and he hopes the newly revised and renovated Cyclone Cinema “will become a staple for students at

Iowa State.” “SUB is an organization that always tries to bring the best quality entertainment to ISU students and anytime we can do it for free, we do,” Thompson said.

Cyclone Cinema Fall Semester’s Lineup 8/25-28: “Bridesmaids” 9/1-4: “Pirates of the Caribbean 4” 9/8-11: “Kung Fu Panda 2” 9/15-18: “The Hangover- Part 2” 9/22-25: “Super 8” 9/29-10/2: “Cars 2” 10/6-9: “Green Lantern” 10/13-16: “Transformers 3” 10/20-23: “Horrible Bosses” 10/27-30: “Harry Potter 7, Part 2” 11/3- 6: “Crazy Stupid Love” 11/10- 13: “Captain America” 11/17-20: “Cowboys & Aliens” 12/1-4: “30 Minutes or Less”

Photos released of missing US woman Disruptions, clashes as strike begins in Chile By The Associated Press

ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Aruba prosecutors on Wednesday released more photographs of a missing Maryland woman and her detained travel companion to help aid potential witnesses on the Dutch Caribbean island. Prosecutors said in a statement that they decided to publicly release the last known photos of the woman and the suspect after previously released pictures of Robyn Gardner and her travel companion, Gary V. Giordano, “yielded little result.” Two pictures of Gardner’s back were taken as she left a restaurant on the afternoon she went missing. In one photo, Giordano’s back is also visible as they depart the Rum Reef Restaurant. Prosecutors also released a photo of the white Toyota Rav 4 that the two rented on the island. Prosecutors urged anyone who saw Giordano and “can give information on him, his contacts and the places he and the woman visited on the is-

land” to contact the police or call a tip line. Giordano has been detained on suspicion of involvement in the presumed death of the 35-year-old woman. He has denied wrongdoing. Searches

by police have found nothing that might link him to her disappearance. The businessman from Maryland traveled to Aruba with Gardner on July 31 and reported her missing two days

later. He told police that she disappeared while the two were snorkeling. He was stopped at the airport Aug. 5 as he tried to leave Aruba. Authorities said they found discrepancies in his story.

SANTIAGO, Chile — Protesters supporting a 48-hour strike called by student groups, unions and opposition politicians threw up burning barricades and clashed with police Wednesday to demand fundamental changes in Chile. At least 11 people were injured and 35 arrested, police said. One injured police officer was shot in the hand, police Maj. Christian Kuntzman said. The day began with a long and noisy pot-banging protest known as a “caceroleo,” conducted by students who have been boycotting classes for three months to demand improvements in public education. Treasury Secretary Felipe Larrain had said the strike would cost Chile $200 million a day in lost production, but it was unclear Wednesday how much of a shutdown the strikers achieved. Although Santiago’s buses and the subway mostly functioned normally, most people stayed out of the capital’s normally busy city center, leaving only light street traffic. Most stores were open, but got few customers and many employees stayed home. Other cities and provinces around Chile also were unusually quiet. President Sebastian Pinera said at the government palace that “fortunately, as of now, the country is functioning with considerable normality.”

France cuts growth targets, unveils austerity plan By Greg Keller The Associated Press PARIS — President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government has bowed to economic reality, admitting its growth forecasts were overly rosy and announcing an euro11 billion ($16 billion) austerity package in a bid to ensure that France doesn’t miss a vital pledge to cut its deficit. The government unveiled the package of spending cuts and tax increases two weeks after France came under fire by investors who feared the country’s high debt and deficit levels, as well as its role bailing out weaker European partners like Greece. Prime Minister Francois Fillon said the austerity package is vital for France to keep its pledge on deficit reduction and maintain its triple A credit rating. France has not managed to balance its budget in three decades, and Sarkozy has staked his credibility on hitting a series of deficit targets over the next three years. Fillon blamed the international economic slowdown for France’s failure to achieve the 2 percent growth this year that Finance Minister Francois Baroin said only last week was still within reach. The country now expects to grow only 1.75 percent this year, and the same amount in 2012. The government had built its 2012 budget, a critical election year for Sarkozy, on a target of 2.25 percent growth.

Photo: Patrick Kovarik/The Associated Press France’s Prime Minister Francois Fillon, left, delivers his speech Wednesday in Paris. With France increasingly called upon to bail out weaker eurozone nations, and with its own debts mounting, France is casting for ways to reduce its deficit.

Sarkozy’s austerity package consists largely of closing tax loopholes and scraping deductions for the country’s largest companies. But it also includes a euro200 million tax hike on the country’s wealthiest taxpayers via a 3 percent “exceptional contribution” on incomes over euro500,000.

Fillon said the measures would ensure France achieves its pledge to European partners and to the holders of its euro1.6 trillion in debt to cut its deficit to 5.7 percent this year from 7.1 percent in 2010. France is also committed to cutting its debt to at least 4.6 percent in 2012 and 3 percent in



Greece allows police to enter university campuses By The Associated Press ATHENS, Greece — Greece has abolished restrictions that made it difficult for police to enter university campuses, which have become a hotbed for protests against the country’s austerity measures as Greece’s economy struggles. The new law also reduces the say of student political parties in academic administration. Lawmakers passed the new legislation on Wednesday, which left-wing parties opposed. Under previous freedom of expression laws, police could only enter university grounds with rarely-granted permission from academic authorities. That system was widely abused, particularly by rioting youths who would hole up in university buildings

2013, regardless of whether economic growth comes back. Among the tax hikes in Sarkozy’s plan are a 6 percent rise in the cigarette tax, higher taxes on hard alcohol like vodka, whiskey and eau de vie, and a new tax on sugary soft drinks. The new tax on high earners will

be repealed if and when France brings its deficit down below 3 percent, Fillon said. A group of 16 of France’s megarich, including L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt, published an open letter Wednesday proposing they pay this tax as their contribution to the nation’s efforts to face down its worsening deficit and debt situation. The French government was put under pressure to cut deeper into spending after figures earlier this month showed growth in Europe’s second biggest economy ground to a halt in the spring, in another sign that the global economy is facing rising recessionary threats. With the worse-than-expected French growth figures suggesting a possible budget shortfall this year, government ministers were forced to find additional savings to ward off speculation by investors that France could become the next major economy after the U.S. to lose its coveted triple-A credit rating. The French economy posted zero growth in the second quarter, national statistics agency INSEE said. Government economists had forecast growth of around 0.2 percent in the period. Consumer spending slumped 0.7 percent and exports stagnated during the second quarter. Growth in the first quarter was nearly 1 percent. Views on the weak performance were mixed, with warnings that a stagnant economy will make it harder to reduce the deficit.

Glenn Beck hosts rally in Old City of Jerusalem By Aron Helle The Associated Press

to attack police during the past year’s protests against the country’s tough austerity measures.

The cuts are being imposed in an effort to bail Greece out of its crippling economic crisis.

JERUSALEM — Former Fox TV personality Glenn Beck capped a contentious visit to Israel Wednesday with a strong call of support for the Jewish state in a rally alongside a hotly disputed holy site in Jerusalem’s Old City. The conservative commentator has won fans among Israel’s far-right with his unabashedly pro-Israel, antiMuslim rhetoric, and 2,000 people turned out to hear him speak next to the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. “What happens here does not just affect Israel. From this moment forth, it affects the future of the entire globe,” he said, to a standing ovation. “The only message that I have for Israel and the Israelis is

this: My friends, do not lose hope, you must not lose confidence in yourself. You must have courage. You must draw courage from the knowledge that you were led to this land by God.” Outside the Old City walls, a small group of protesters held banners saying “Glenn Beck, go home.” Beck left Fox News Channel in June after a ratings dip to launch a daily two-hour show for paying customers on his own Internet network. He is also a best-selling author and hosts a wildly popular radio show. His departure from Fox was hastened when advertisers began boycotting him after he said President Barack Obama had a “deep-seated hatred for white people.” Beck, who is Mormon, also got into trouble for describing George Soros, the liberal billionaire financier who

survived the Holocaust, as a “Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.” His speech Wednesday marked the final leg of his “Restoring Courage” tour of the Holy Land. Israeli religious figures and left-wing politicians came together in an unusual alliance to appeal to Israelis to shun his embrace. Religious Jews worried that he came to spread the Christian gospel, while dovish Israelis rejected Beck’s support for West Bank Jewish settlements and his criticism of peace efforts. “It is embarrassing that the government of Israel and the city of Jerusalem is identifying with a character like this and giving him a warm embrace,” said Etai Mizrav, an activist from the Peace Now organization. “He expresses racist and anti-Semitic sentiments in the guise of affection for Israel.”

North Korea reported ready to halt nuclear weapon tests

Indian lawmakers to discuss activist’s corruption proposal

By Foster Klug And Mansur Mirovalev The Associated Press

By Muneeza Naqvi The Associated Press

MOSCOW — North Korean leader Kim Jong Il says his country is ready to impose a nuclear test and production moratorium if international talks on its atomic program resume, in Pyongyang’s latest effort to restart long-stalled, aid-fordisarmament talks. It remains to be seen, however, whether Kim’s reported gesture at a summit Wednesday with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will satisfy the most skeptical of the five other nations at talks meant to end the North’s nuclear weapons ambitions — the United States, South Korea and Japan. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Wednesday that Kim Jong Il’s reported offer to refrain from nuclear and missile tests was “a welcome first step” but not enough to restart six-party disarmament talks. Kim, at the summit in eastern Siberia, reportedly made no mention of an issue that lies at the heart of negotiators’ worries: North Korea’s recently revealed uranium enrichment program. Medvedev spokeswoman Natalya Timakova was quoted by the ITAR-Tass news agency as saying that Kim expressed readiness to return to the nuclear talks without pre-

conditions, and, “in the course of the talks, North Korea will be ready to resolve the question of imposing a moratorium on tests and production of nuclear missile weapons.” Nuland said that North Korea’s disclosure of a uranium enrichment facility last November “remains a matter of serious concern” that violates U.N. resolutions and commitments Pyongyang had made on denuclearization in 2005. “We will not go back to six-party talks until North Koreans are prepared to meet all of the commitments that we’ve all laid out,” Nuland told a news conference in Washington.


The North promised to freeze its long-range missile tests in 1999, but has since routinely tested short-range missiles and launched a longrange rocket in April 2009. It has also conducted two nuclear tests, most recently in 2009, and last year it shelled a South Korean front-line island, killing four, and allegedly torpedoed a South Korean warship, killing 46. Kim and Medvedev met at the hotel of a military garrison near the city of Ulan-Ude in Buryatia, a predominantly Buddhist province near Lake Baikal. It is Kim’s first trip to Russia since 2002, and it follows a marked easing in tensions between North and

South Korea. Nuclear envoys from the Koreas met last month on the sidelines of a regional security summit for what were described as cordial talks. A senior North Korean official then traveled to New York for talks with his U.S. counterparts. The North has repeatedly said it wants the so-called sixparty nuclear talks to resume. Washington and Seoul, however, have been wary, calling first for an improvement in the abysmal ties between the Koreas and for a sincere sign from the North that it will abide by past commitments it has made in previous rounds of the nuclear talks.

NEW DELHI — Indian lawmakers agreed after frantic talks Wednesday to discuss a stringent anti-corruption law proposed by a reform activist whose eight-day fast demanding the legislation has drawn burgeoning support and tested the scandal-tainted government. Beleaguered Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met with all parties in Parliament, which called on Anna Hazare to end his hunger strike and recommended that lawmakers debate his draft of an anti-corruption bill. Singh told the meeting that the protesters were demanding the government withdraw its version of the bill, table their version within four days and pass it this session with only minor amendments. Critics have accused the protesters of blackmailing the government and subverting Parliament. “Recent developments have raised issues related to the functioning of our parliamentary democracy that concern all of us,” Singh told the lawmakers, saying he was seeking their “guidance on the way forward.” A key Hazare aide said that the government should table the bill in Parliament immediately. “I want to request the prime minister, if you are so concerned about his health, you should table the bill in Parliament tomorrow,” and Hazare would end his fast, Arvind Kejriwal told reporters. The principal difference between the bills is whether a national anti-corruption watchdog should have power to investigate and sanction the prime minister’s office and the judiciary. Critics of Hazare’s bill say its provision granting such power to the watchdog would be unconstitutional and note that top leaders in most democracies worldwide have immunity from such investigations. The government has agreed to study Hazare’s version of the bill before arriving at a fresh draft for a tough anti-corruption law. A third round of talks between Hazare’s aides and senior government ministers followed the meeting of the lawmakers but ended with little success. Law Minister Salman Khurshid, a key negotiator, told reporters the talks were “positive,” adding that discussions would continue Thursday. But Kejriwal said he was disappointed with the slow progress on Hazare’s demands and said despite days of talks the government continued to vacillate. “We are still where we were three days ago,” he told reporters.
