UK employee contracts tuberculosis Hospital notifying patients that may have had contact during stay By Nicole Schladt

An employee at the UK HealthCare Good Samaritan Hospital has been diagnosed with a confirmed case of tuberculosis. One of the hospital’s fe-

male nurses, who is also a student at Eastern Kentucky University, has been isolated and receiving treatment since her diagnosis was confirmed in mid-October, a Good Samaritan news release said. The hospital is working to notify patients who may have come in contact with the

employee so they can get medical treatment if they have compromised immune systems or begin to show signs of infection. These patients include those treated on the fifth or sixth floors of Good Samaritan on days that she was working from June 1 through Oct. 13. The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is currently compiling a list of further contacts by talking with the in-

fected nurse and determining who she has come in contact with, according to a health department news release. At least 82 Good Samaritan employees have already been tested for tuberculosis. The victim is no longer attending classes at EKU, but about 50 students on campus in Madison County have been tested as well, LexingtonFayette County Health Department Communications

Officer Kevin Hall said. “We have a very active TB program here. We are working with the hospital to do testing on exposed individuals and the Madison County Health Department is working with EKU to handle their testing,” Hall said. Tuberculosis is a contagious bacterial infection that primarily attacks the lungs. It is transmitted when a person breathes in droplets from a

cough or sneeze of an infected person. Common symptoms include coughing, wheezing and fatigue, but the infection often remains dormant for several years before being triggered into active tuberculosis by another illness. UK HealthCare is able to answer any questions or concerns regarding tuberculosis at 800-207-1268 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. or at 859-323-0077 after 6 p.m.

New courses serve as test run

nizational and governance issues within the Gatton College. Issues stated in the report included a lack of cohesiveness in the college, an ineffective shared governance model and communication problems. In a 2009 report reviewing the dean's progress, among his strengths mentioned were the development of the 11-month Masters in Business Administration program, his commitment to diversity and his sensitivity to the resource gap between the Gatton College and comparable schools at UK's benchmark institutions.

Ten new University Studies Program courses offered at UK for the Spring 2011 semester are being used as a test run of classes for the new General Education program UK is trying to implement. The UK Staff Senate will vote on Dec. 13 regarding the new added courses and the movement towards a more General Education curriculum. “The courses being offered in the spring semester will be a test run to permanently add the course to its specific department or not,” Michael Mullen, associate provost for undergraduate education, said. The humanities, natural science, social science, cross cultural and inference sections will all be adding new courses. An e-mail was sent over a campus-wide listserv Wednesday morning giving a complete description of the courses offered. According to the e-mail, the courses that will be added to the USP list will include two humanities courses, Theatre: An Introduction and Living on the Right Side of the Brain. Theatre: An Introduction, USP 120, will be a course that offers an introduction and investigation into the analysis, research, production and creative/artistic techniques vital to the art of theatre and performance. The second humanities course, Living on the Right Side of the Brain UK 100, will give students the opportunity to better understand creative strategies that will help in future problem solving. A natural science course that can be used for students USP requirements will also be added. The course is titled Physics of Energy, USP 100. The goal of the course is to give students proper vocabulary and the conceptual basis that will allow you to understand the energy problem and participate in solving it. The Social Science USP is also adding a course titled Making Men: Critical Approaches to Masculinities, A&S 100. The course we will discuss historical, sociological, psychological, literary, popular culture and anthropological perspectives on the making and unmaking of masculinities among different ethnic, class and age groups in the U.S. and abroad.

Popular drink to remove caffeine, guarana, taurine By Katie Perkowski

Students may not be going Loko anymore. Or at least the way they have been. Tuesday, Phusion Products, maker of Four Loko, announced in a news release it would reformulate its products to remove caffeine, guarana and taurine nationwide. According to the news release, the company will now only produce non-caffeinated versions of Four Loko, and the company has informed its employees and distributors of this plan. The company’s announcement came a day before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned four companies, including Phusion Products, that the caffeine added to their malt alcoholic beverages is an “unsafe food additive,” according to an FDA news release. Charge Beverage Corp., New Century Brewing Co., LLC and United Brands Company Inc. were the other three companies warned. “FDA does not find support for the claim that the addition of caffeine to these alcoholic beverages is ‘generally recognized as safe,’ which is the legal standard,” said Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, principal deputy commissioner in the FDA’s news release. “To the contrary, there is evidence that the combinations of caffeine and alcohol in these products pose a public health concern.” The FDA said further action, including seizure of their products, is possible under federal law. Big Daddy Liquors, located at 372 Woodland Ave., has been selling Four Loko for about two months, and manager James Swanberg said the store has heard about the product’s change to come and the possible ban of products similar to it. “Chances are it will probably demolish the See FOUR LOKO on page 3

Night Owls A look at students’ after-hours activities By Gary N. Hermann

After many UK students have returned to their dorms for the night, several students are just getting started with activities. These “night owls” can be partiers, procrastinators or overachievers and can be found studying in the library, playing sports on Stoll Field, working

on projects at the College of Design and even in your own lobby. Night owls often flock to the William T. Young Library. Many students are at the library after midnight because they have an exam the next day. Biology sophomore Annie Tiu, like several other students in the library that night, was studying for an organic chemistry test and bio systems engineering freshman Dylan Heath had a calculus test. Tiu enjoys going to the library late at night. “It’s nice because my roommate doesn’t do as much on the same schedule as I do,” Tiu said. Safety has been an elevated concern on campus this year, but “I’m not too concerned,” Heath said. “I will walk her to her car. It’s chivalry.” Kinesiology junior Jimmie Jones sees the return of many night owls when he works the night desk at Holmes Hall. Jones said he is largely unfazed by many of the strange occurrences in the lobby after midnight. In fact, he uses his time at the desk to catch up on Desperate Housewives and Glee. Jones cited several instances of students going to the desk after having been locked out of their rooms in towels that were too small. Some students use the night desk workers as oracles of vital information. “I have people who come down in the middle of the night and ask random questions like ‘what See NIGHT OWLS on page 3

Gatton dean search underway Provost Subbaswamy putting together a search committee By Becca Clemons


First issue free. Subsequent issues 25 cents.

The presidential search is not the only one needed to fill a leadership position at UK. The Gatton College of Business and Economics has an opening for a new dean after current Dean Devanathan Sudharshan announced earlier this year that he will step down. Sudharshan will remain dean until the end of the academic

year. As for the next dean, Provost Kumble R. Subbaswamy is putting together a search committee, his office said. It is not yet known whether a search firm will be used to help find the new dean. Sudharshan became the sixth dean of the college in 2003, succeeding Richard W. Furst, who held the position for 22 years. Last year, Subbaswamy commissioned Pappas Consulting Group, Inc. to help address orga-

Beatles join iTunes catalogue SAN JOSE, Calif. — After years of singing out of tune, Apple and the Beatles announced Tuesday that they were able to work it out and the Fab Four's legendary pop tunes are now appearing on iTunes, the world's largest music retailer. The group's 13 remastered studio albums are now available for purchase in digital format through the Cupertino, Calif., company's online store. Fans can also get a special "Beatles Box Set" that includes the first-ever Beatles concert in the United States at Washington Coliseum in 1964. "We love the Beatles and are honored and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes," Apple CEO Steve Jobs, a fervent Beatles fan, said in a statement. "It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream we've had since we launched iTunes 10 years ago." The deal, consummated after years of friction over trademark disputes, represents the marriage of two of the world's most powerful pop icons John, Paul, George and Ringo, and Apple. "I lost my youth waiting for this day," said Needham & Co. analyst Charles Wolf. "It's by far the greatest rock group that's ever been assembled, and getting them on iTunes is very symbolic. It's not going to affect Apple's earnings or sales in any material way, but it nonetheless adds to the brand. It's a brandbuilder." The two remaining living Beatles also issued statements. "We're really excited to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes," Sir Paul McCartney said. "It's fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around."

"I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes," Ringo Starr said. "At last, if you want it you can get it now the Beatles from Liverpool to now! Peace and Love, Ringo." The wives of deceased band members John Lennon and George Harrison also publicly embraced the deal. Getting the Beatles on iTunes is a deeply personal accomplish for Jobs, said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies. "Steve is a huge fan of the Beatles and has wanted to have their music on iTunes since Day 1." For years, the big impediment was a longrunning legal dispute between Apple and Apple Corp., the record label the Beatles owned. Soon after Jobs and Steve Wozniak launched Apple Computer in the mid-1970s, Apple Corp. sued the startup, charging trademark infringement. But the companies settled their differences in 2007, with Apple gaining ownership of the "apple" name, logo and related trademarks, some of which it licensed back to Apple Corp. That settlement paved the way to having music from McCartney and other individual Beatles on iTunes, but it didn't lead to the Beatles themselves making an appearance. While Beatles fans could transfer music from CDs to their laptops and listen to it digitally for years, the agreement has a certain symbolic value to it, Bajarin said. The world's most iconic rock band has made the "shift to fundamentally go all-digital." Single albums are available for purchase and download for $12.99 each, double albums for $19.99 each and individual songs for $1.29 each.

Thanksgiving shuttle offered Students needing a ride to the airport for the holidays don’t have to look far. UK Parking and Transportation Services will offer rides to Blue Grass Airport for students returning home for Thanksgiving. The shuttle will run Monday, Nov. 22 through Wednesday, Nov. 24, with daily campus pick-up times at 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., according to a news release. Students should leave two hours before their departure from the airport. Students wishing to take a shuttle, should send an email to with the subject “Thanks-

giving Break Shuttle” at least 48 hours in advance and should include name, campus address, campus phone number and/or cell number. They also must include the date, time and location of the requested pick-up, according to the news release. A representative from PTS will call to confirm a pick-up time and location, according to the release. Students must find their own ride back to UK. They can use LexTran, which has a bus that picks up near the airport and drops off at the Vine Street terminal.

Whether or not the courses end up being added, Mullen said it would still be beneficial for students to take them. “Students who take the courses will get credit for taking the course whether it is added to the specific department or not. Either counting towards their USP requirement or towards the department if the course is added,” Mullen said.

the other products like it were made by big distributors,” he said. “Finally an independent came into the market and killed their sales, and it’s my belief that they’re being banned because the lobbyists in Washington for the big beer distributors were afraid of losing sales.” According to the FDA’s news release, the organization is aware of Phusion Products’ intention to remove the caffeine and other stimulants from its products, and the FDA views the announce-

“It’s a love-hate relationship. We’ll complain about it, but we love what we do.” ERIC BURNSIDE architecture sophomore

Some of UK’s night owls can be found in room 106 of the College of Design building. These second year architecture students refer to themselves as “O’Bryan’s Army” (a reference to their architecture studio professor ), enjoy blasting music and have a 2 a.m. minimum for leaving the studio.

“It’s a love-hate relationship,” architecture sophomore Eric Burnside said. “We’ll complain about it, but we love what we do.” The architecture students have their own keys giving them 24-hour access to the building, and they frequently use the privilege. Architecture sophomore Shannon Ruhl noted the value of 24-hour access from the previous week. “I was here until 8, then I had a 9 o’clock class,” architecture sophomore Shannon Ruhl said. “I was really cranky that day.” Some of the UK night owls often ignore or even forget the very concept of time. “At least two nights a week, we are all here,” said architecture sophomore Sam Forman. “There’s a couple hours where you just get in the zone.” Look for these night owls to be starting their activities as soon as your ready for bed.

However, finance professor Joe Peek said the gap between the UK business school and the University of Louisville's business school is closing rapidly and UK needs to make more progress. He hopes that the new dean can help the college move ahead. “It's sort of scary. We're the flagship university, yet they're the one that's moving,” Peek said. The 2009 report also noted communication as an area of concern.

“I think what we need is someone who can communicate,” Peek said. “That means two-way communication, and I think that's what we've been lacking.” “The faculty don't feel like they have a lot of input,” Peek said. “The faculty here are very bright people and have lots of ideas.” He also said a new dean needs to be creative and innovative and help form successful programs at Gatton. In an e-mail to the Gatton College faculty Subbaswamy said the college must run normally to conduct a successful dean search. He is working on getting faculty together to form the search committee.

ment as a positive step. The FDA has not heard from the company officially about the announcement, including when the company would remove the current product from production and how quickly it would remake its products. “FDA intends to work with Phusion Products, LLC and the other manufacturers to assure their products meet safety standards,” according to the news release. The FDA’s actions came after a November 2009 request to manufacturers to pro-

vide information on the safety of adding caffeine to their products, according to the news release. According to Phusion Products’ Tuesday news release, the company still believes that the combination of alcohol and caffeine is safe. “If it were unsafe, popular drinks like rum and colas or Irish coffees that have been consumed safely and responsibly for years would face the same scrutiny that our products have recently faced,” said the news release.

Teaching tools used by the new Henry Lee Institute at University of New Haven include labs set up as crime scenes so students can learn the practical aspects of their theoretical lessons.

Institute gives visitors a hands-on experience in forensic science By Kathleen Megan MCT

HARTFORD, Conn. — When you enter the new $14 million home of the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science at the University of New Haven, you are instantly immersed in the bloodstained world of forensic investigation, and particularly in the cases handled by Lee in his eminent career. First you touch a handprint on a wall that launches a video of Lee explaining that your fingerprints will now be checked with a database. Then the police sirens wail and you hear officers barking orders over a scanner. Farther in are exhibits showing how various types of light reveal bloodstains on a screwdriver; a chance to match bullets; and a look at the differences between male and female skeletal remains. Around a corner is a room where a body — a dummy — lies in a recliner, apparently strangled, with evidence marked by numbers around the room; a bottle of beer to his left, a powder that looks like cocaine on a coffee table,

a bureau with clothes spilling out. “It gives people a chance to experience some of the processes involved in forensic science,” said Elaine Pagliaro, who is grant coordinator for the institute and an assistant to Lee. Tim Palmbach, executive director of the institute, said the goal is also to show the public that forensic science “is not necessarily what they’ve come to know and believe after watching ‘CSI.’” There are high-tech classrooms and advanced technologies for research and for consultations with police. The institute will be buying an infrared camera to examine human remains. The institute also has a cutting-edge forensic crisis command center where UNH experts can connect by satellite with police and other governmental agencies to examine evidence that is beamed to them — thus providing help as if they were physically at the crime scene. Other new technology that will be available include: ground-penetrating radar for locating buried bodies and

evidence and a high-intensity laser to determine a bullet’s trajectory. Palmbach said that when he arrived at the University of New Haven in 1978 as a student of forensic science, there were only a few dozen students in the program. Back in those days, Palmbach said, “There wasn’t a single person, not even a guidance counselor, that if you said forensic science knew what you were talking about.” Since then, the rise of Lee as a superstar in the forensics field — called upon in the O.J. Simpson, Scott Peterson and JonBenet Ramsey trials — and the popularity of “CSI” and other crime investigation TV shows have helped to drive the growth of the university’s department. In the past 10 years, Palmbach said, the university’s Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences has doubled in size — now with an enrollment of 1,728 undergrads, accounting for 43 percent of the university’s 4,000 undergraduates.

It’s taken me a long time to realize I’m a country artist. I used to hate country.” The honest truth: A man who sings what’s on his mind By Matt Murray

Corey Smith grew up on food stamps. Now, honesty is making him millions. The 31-year-old Georgia native said he has a responsibility as an independent artist to write honest, and sometimes explicit, music for his fans, and he’s still adapting to being classified as a country musician. “Being an independent artist has allowed me to take chances,” Smith said.

Kernel POP!

“It’s taken me a long time to realize I’m a country artist. I used to hate country. I feel like I have more of a rock philosophy beneath it, it’s more edgy. Country artists are always the star of their football team, where rockers are the outcasts. I was horribly unathletic and unpopular. Guitar was my way out.” Smith’s biggest problem with country music lies in the greed he says can sometimes overpower the music. “There’s a fine line in music between the art and the commerce and at times, country

music blatantly crosses that line,” Smith said. “There’s a clear formula some artists stick to sell records and it makes me sick.” Smith said he avoids crossing the line by simply writing what he’s feeling. His latest album “Keeping up with the Joneses” was released last year, and the album takes a look at his roots in the South, as well as the changing landscape of his life. “This last record shows that I’ve evolved a bit. It’s more metaphorical,” Smith said. “On some of my previous albums I just said exactly what I was thinking, and this one has more beneath the surface.” Smith has produced all of his albums and said the production and style of “Keeping up with the Joneses” is what makes it unique from his previous releases. Smith credits the Internet and social networking sites like MySpace and Twitter for the success he’s had, saying they offered him a cheap, easy way to get his music heard. But he has concerns about how much access fans have to artists through social media, too. “I think the jury’s out on how much a fan wants to know about an artist,” Smith said. “I’m a big John Mayer fan, and I started following him when I first got on Twitter. I had to stop following him, because it made me realize he was a douchebag.” Smith is married with two kids and said family life has had a strong effect on his music.

“It’s made me feel more responsible. I have to be honest and not censor myself, but it makes me think twice about the message I’m putting out there.” Smith said. He now tours three or four days at a time, and insists he make it home for at least two days out of a week. Smith said in addition to family, one of the biggest inspirations behind his writing is people’s lack of willingness to be open minded. “What gets me is closed mindedness, particularly in the South, especially with religion,” Smith said. “It’s had a big impact on how I view the world, and not necessarily in a good way. Some people see it as you’re going to heaven or hell, and there’s no in-between. That’s not a good way to look at things.” His tour brings him to Lexington this Saturday, and Smith said UK students are likely to connect with his music. “My songs have a particular sense of place, and it makes sense people from similar places are going to identify with it,” Smith said. “I love Lexington, and I love bourbon.” Smith recalled a particular run-in he and his love for bourbon had the last time he was in Kentucky. “I took my buddies out to a bourbon bar the last show I played in Lexington and I asked the bartender what the most expensive shot was, and I heard him tell me $15 so I bought a round. He started treating us really good, giving us free samples for the rest of the night. My tab at the end of the night was ridiculous, and it turned out it was actually $50 a shot. But it was good.” Corey Smith will be at Buster’s Billiards and Backroom on Saturday night. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m. Opening acts include Ingram Hill and Kenny Owens. Tickets are $18 in advance and $25 at the door.

Kenyan artist showcases Diversity speaker talks sexuality, racial profiling culture in exhibit By Kendall Smith

Artist-in-Residence program brings ‘images and ideas from another culture’ to UK By Ellen Masters

The UK Department of Art and the Ruth Hunt Wood Foundation will present artwork of Jimnah Kimani beginning with a reception on Thursday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tuska Gallery inside the Fine Arts Building. Kimani is the latest artist to take part in the UK Kenyan Artist-in-Residence program, now in its tenth year. His art will be on display from Nov. 18 to Dec. 10. The artwork he has produced this semester is enough to fill the entire Tuska Gallery, said Benjamin Withers, chairperson of the art department at UK. “This is an excellent opportunity for the community to be exposed to images and ideas from another culture,” said Jane Andrus, student affairs coordinator for the Department of Art. Kimani, born in Mombasa in

1974, is known for using bright colors and caricature-like people in his art. He started painting in 1993 and has never looked back, though he did odd jobs until his art career exploded onto the African art scene. “Most of Kimani’s work is 2-D, but he has ventured into mixed-media art. His work is also characterized by thick brush strokes and the exaggerated features of his subjects,” Withers said. “I can’t say I’m inspired by anyone in particular,” Kimani said. “I like different things about different artists, and my work is a combination of everything I like. I’m mostly inspired just by my life.” He plans on returning home to Kenya after the semester. Withers said Kimano has the opportunity to interact with students and the UK community through living in a north campus

dorm. “Not only do we get to see his culture through his art, he gets to experience ours by living and interacting with the students,” Withers said. UK alum Ruth Hunt Wood, founder of the Ruth Hunt Wood Foundation, scouted him. Wood travels to Kenya each summer, meets with a panel in Nairobi and chooses an aspiring Kenyan artist to take part in UK’s program, Withers said. Andrus said Wood’s foundation covers all expenditures for the program, even the refreshments for the reception.” The exhibition is free and open to the public during normal gallery hours, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. A lecture by Kimani is planned for Friday at noon in the Fine Arts Building as part of the program. He will discuss his life, his art and how he became the man he is today.

When it comes to diversity and inclusion, perhaps no issues are more prominent today than gay rights and racial profiling. This week’s diversity dialogue features Jonathan Perry, who will speak about his experiences and struggles with being a gay, black and HIV-positive man. Perry, who appeared on Oprah in 2004, will discuss a range of topics dealing with diversity and tolerance. “I’m really big on the fact that we all make mistakes,” Perry said. “It’s about personal responsibility and accountability. It’s not about how bad you messed up. Be willing to accept those mistakes and move past them.” Perry, intends to discuss how racial profiling has drastically affected his life. “I was falsely accused, arrested and sat in jail for 30 days only to have all the charges dropped because they didn’t have any evidence,” Perry said. “I felt like my civil rights were being violated, and I’m still dealing with it two months later. It taught me to be more vigilant.” “It was the most traumatic experience of my entire life,” said Perry. “For law enforcement agencies to arrest people simply because they’re black — it has a profound impact on how I feel about people.”

Perry explained just how damaging the experience was and how it still follows him, even today. “I have nightmares about police now as a result of this experience,” Perry said. Still, Perry insists it is important not to lump everyone into one category, despite how awful racial profiling can be. Perry said conquering racial profiling is possible. “Intolerance exists, and as victims, we have to rise above that,” Perry said. “You can live through it. Overcoming adversity is the most important thing.” He also believes America has made more progress with tolerance towards sexuality than in tolerance toward racial diversity. “We’ve come a lot further with sexual orientation than ethnicity,” Perry said. “9/11 certainly didn’t make it any better. People were upset about the Muslim community center being built over there. People need a reason to complain. When all the complaining is done, what next?” Perry will speak Thursday at 7 p.m. in the small ballroom of the Student Center.

Jones gets to go home on trip to Portland By Ben Jones

It didn’t take long for Terrence Jones to earn a trip home. Friday’s game against the Portland Pilots at the Rose Garden, the home court for the Portland Trailblazers, will serve as a de facto homecoming for the freshman forward from Portland, Ore. After signing with a school so far away, he’s ready to head home for a game in front of friends and family. “It will mean a lot,” Jones said. “To have a chance to play in front of my mom and my grandma as a college player and how much I’ve improved since high school, just to prove how much harder I’ve worked. I’ve improved a lot on my shot and playing harder.” As he was being recruited by UK head coach John Calipari, Jones was told there was a chance a nonconference game could be scheduled near his home if he committed before a certain

date when the schedule would be completed. When he was sure UK was the right fit for him, he made sure to tell Calipari quickly to try and get the game on the schedule. But Calipari seemed significantly less excited about Jones’ trip home. “Terrence thinks he’s home to vacation,” Calipari said. “That’s why he thinks he’s home. He doesn’t know we’re playing a basketball game because he’s never done this before. He’s already lined up everything he’s going to do by the minute when he gets home, probably hasn’t listed the game.” Jones committed to the Washington Huskies on a TV special, then reopened his recruitment. Shortly after, he signed with the Cats. Still, he’s not worried about being booed by anyone who wanted him to stay closer to home. Sophomore guard Jon Hood, a Kentucky native, gets to play in front of friends and family during nearly every home game. But

he said Friday’s game will probably be more meaningful for Jones, because his family won’t have as many opportunities to watch him play. “I know he’s excited about going home,” Hood said. “Anybody would be.” It’s just his second game as a college player, though, and Calipari is worried about how he’ll deal with the emotions and pressure of playing so close to home. “He and I talked about it,” Calipari said. “I said, ‘I have yet to have a guy go home and play well, so good luck.’ ” Jones said the key to playing well will be focusing on the game and not thinking about who’s in the stands – even though he admitted “a lot” of people will be there to watch him play. “Hopefully I play and prove (Calipari) wrong,” Jones said. “I really want to play and show them the whole team. Me with new faces and show them how we are as a team.”

Looking at other potential “homecomings” NICK CRADDOCK

Kernel columnist Home is where the heart is. And the Rose Garden, of course. The Cats are set to embark on a road trip to Portland, Ore., the hometown of freshman forward Terrence Jones, to take on the Portland Pilots in the home arena of the Portland Trail Blazers (the Rose Garden). The game is being touted as a homecoming for Jones, the most recent Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, but really, the trip out west acts as a nice tune-up before the Cats play in the EA Sports Maui Invitational, a tournament that could see UK play three games in three days against stiff competition

the week of Thanksgiving. Plus, the stopover in Portland shaves off the first 2,000-or-so miles on a roughly 4,400-mile trip from Lexington to Maui, land of the flowered shirts and luaus. Regardless, Jones, who initially committed to nearby Washington before signing with UK, has the rare opportunity to play close to home after all. “It’s going to be real fun, you know how (Nicholasville, Ky., native and teammate) Jarrod (Polson) gets that little ‘Aahh!’ every time he touches the ball, hopefully I’ll get that,” Jones said. So if every game in Rupp Arena is a homecoming for Polson, and if Jones will be the beneficiary of home cooking on Friday, will the other players ever enjoy that feeling? Here are some potential Division I opponents that are close to their home-

towns, and it would be a treat for them if they found their way onto future UK schedules.

KERNEL EDITORIAL BOARD Matt Murray, editor in chief Cassidy Herrington, opinions editor Wesley Robinson, managing editor Chandler Howard, sports editor Katie Perkowski, managing editor Martha Groppo, features editor The opinions page provides a forum for the exchange of ideas. Unlike news stories, the Kernel’s unsigned editorials represent the views of a majority of the editorial board. Letters to the editor, columns, cartoons and other features on the opinions page reflect the views of their authors and not necessarily those of the Kernel.


Four Loko jolts drinkers locally, nationally Caffeine is the newest ingredient added to alcoholic beverages of choice among college students. What may make it controversial, though, are the potential side effects (or lack thereof) and health implications of the alcoholcaffeine combination. According to a Nov. 11 Kentucky Kernel article, Director of the Alcohol and Health Education Office at UK Drew Smith said the danger in alcoholic energy drinks like Four Loko is they “have the ability to keep people awake and delay the actual signs of feeling intoxicated.” Although this has left some medical professionals concerned, caffeinated alcoholic beverages are more popular than ever. The Kernel Editorial Board followed up with representatives from Big Daddy Liquors and Shenanigans Wines and Spirits after the Kernel article about Four Loko alcoholic energy drinks to see if Four Loko’s recent media spotlight has affected sales. Roger, an employee from Big Daddy Liquors, said since the story ran, the company has seen a spike in sales of alcoholic energy drinks. “It seems like people are interested,” he said. “People want to see if it’ll really mess you up.” He is, of course, referring to the recent incidents at Central Washington University, in which nine underage students were hospitalized after drinking Four Loko. The incidents aren’t deterring Four Loko from expanding its product, though. Roger said in addition to the flavors Big Daddy Liquors currently sells, it will soon start carrying three new Four Loko flavors. Now patrons can enjoy watermelon, orange blend, “loko uva” (grape), blue raspberry, blueberry pomegranate, lemonade, cranberry lemonade, lemon lime and fruit punch. Shenanigans Wines also reported increases in sales after Friday’s Kernel story. One employee said although Shenanigans had a truck come Thursday, it had sold out of Four Loko before the weekend. “We’re increasing our order quantity,” she said. “People are ordering (Four Loko) by the case now.” She also noted that buyers of alcoholic energy drinks are opting for Four Loko over other brands. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration now announced its plan of action against the sale of caffeinated alcoholic beverages. According to a New York Time article, New York beer distributors agreed to stop product distribution by Dec. 10. The New York Times article also stated that the probable action the FDA will take is issuing more warning letters. Officials predict courts will not prohibit the sale of alcoholic energy drinks altogether. While the precise implications of caffeinated alcoholic drinks are undetermined (mostly because the product concept is new and controlled studies haven’t been conducted to measure the effects extensively), college students continue to buy in large quantities. As with any alcoholic beverage, moderation and personal responsibility are key. The reported hospitalizations and deaths from consumption of alcoholic energy drinks often occurred after binge drinking and among underage college students. While the FDA and individual states continue to debate what should be the next step in regulating the products and reprimanding offenders, students must keep in mind their role in this decision.

Coexistence: sharing the parking structure LETTER TO THE EDITOR I am a 10-year employee of UK, and I park in the Rose Street parking structure. I drive a 2009 Legacy. Though not a fancy car, I try to take care of it. I make monthly payments, like most people. During my year and a half of owning the car, it has been hit five times by UK employees in that structure. I recently took it to a scratch and dent place and had these spots removed, paying out of my pocket. Yesterday I noticed another spot. This dent will have to go to a body shop, as it is a big gash in my back bumper. We are here to teach young adults to be good citizens. How can we teach that, when we are not that ourselves? Not once has anyone left a note or an insurance card on my car. I know when they have hit my car, and they know it. This is plainly and simply being a thief. These are the kind of people we work together with. It’s absolutely deplorable that we can't respect each others’ property any better than this, then go into a classroom or hospital and work together. Charles Jones UK Medical Center

New reality series reveals softer, environmental side of the ‘rogue’ For Palin, there shouldn’t be a separation between saying and doing. I was lucky enough to catch the premiere episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on ANDREW TLC this HAMMACK past SunGuest day. I heard columnist she was going to have a show coming out, but I didn’t really know when, and I didn’t exactly care. When I first heard of the show, without thinking about it, I quickly assumed the plot: show Palin at home with her large, handsome family; show Palin going on various news interviews; show Palin as an “everyday mom.” I expected a lot of “drill baby drill-ing” and “mama grizzlying,” and I wasn’t disappointed. Pretty dull stuff. However, I was surprised to see marvelous footage of

Alaska, one of our most beautiful and naturally resourceful states. I thought Palin looked as if she belonged alongside Bear Grylls in the Discovery channel’s line-up of outdoor adventure shows. In the premiere episode, Palin is seen hiking the foothills of Mt. McKinley, fishing for Salmon in “bear country” and scaling a rocky peak with her husband Todd.

least some of her children on her outdoor adventures (and even tries teaching her young daughter, Piper, a lesson on human nature while they sit and watch two brown bears fighting). Palin is much more complicated however, and her record as Alaska’s governor reveals a great divide between what she says on her show and what she does with her political voice.

Palin has the power to finally fix the disconnect between conservatives and failing to conserve the environment. Palin’s show reveals her to be much the same as the slightly air headed, and surprising former vice-presidential candidate we know her to be, but it also shows her in a more interesting light. It’s clear that Palin LOVES her home in Alaska and takes great pride in its natural beauty. So much so, that she always takes along at

In a recent New York Times article, Matt Bai says this of Palin’s political identity, “Ms. Palin expertly allowed herself to be shaped by the demands of the marketplace, and in this way she became the best example yet of a new phenomenon in our politics — what we might think of as the crowd-sourced candidate.”

In all conceivable ways, Palin has aligned herself with the conservative party in the past. She is an advocate for strong family values, small government and deregulation of corporations. However, with her show, and with her passion for the natural beauty of her home state, she has a chance to stand out from the political right and to break through the historically partisan defined issue — the environment. As the emerging face of a new Republican party, Palin has the power to finally fix the disconnect between conservatives and failing to conserve our environment. Palin says this in the premiere episode, “I love this state like I love my family.” Now, she should use her skyrocketing political fame to protect her state with the same “mama grizzly” ferocity she uses to protect her family.

Two wheels, one mallet Kentucky is known for a variety of things, such as bourbon, Rand Paul and UK men’s basketball, but Lexington is becoming better known for something else. There have been high-profile happenings in Lexington, such as the World Equestrian Games, (the first in the U.S.) an openly gay Mayor-elect and Boomslang Festival. Now Lexington is known for something else: hard-court bike polo. Lexington hosted the first Open Midwest Tournament this past weekend. Fifty teams competed in the tournament, and close to ZACHARY 175 people from the Midwest region made WILLIS Contributing the trek to UK’s home city. Don’t know what hardcourt bike polo is? columnist Don’t worry, I’ll give you a primer. Bicycle polo has been around for a while — it was invented by an Irishman in the early 1890s and was featured as an exhibition game in the 1908 London Olympics. Bicycle polo is like its cousin, Equine Polo, except bicycles are used instead of horses. Hard-court bike polo is a new variation that exploded into worldwide popularity around 2007. Inner cities don’t often have the large grassy expanses used for traditional bicycle polo, so empty lots were used and materials and bikes were self-made. Bikes are often modified to be light, fast and tough. Polo mallets are usually made out of plastic piping and

ski poles. Don’t let the similarities to traditional bike polo fool you though — hard-court more resembles street hockey on bikes, with teams of three jousting for a ball in a small space. Lexington’s history of bike polo started in 2007. By request of the city, the polo players moved from Woodland Park to the tennis courts at Coolavin Park. The tennis courts were modified and self-constructed court walls were put in. Lexington bike polo hosts a few tournaments a year, usually small tri-state affairs. The first Open Midwest Tournament was easily the largest and most ambitious tournament hosted yet, and it went great. Fifty teams from various cities from other states traveled to the Lexington area. Some teams came from as far away as Toronto, Canada, and a player from Sydney, Australia even competed in the tournament. Although a hometown team didn’t place in the top three, a few all-Lexington teams did place in the top 10, and several teams with Lexington players were also in the top ten. My team, a Lexington-Chicago-Pittsburgh trifecta didn’t place in the Sunday rounds, but all of our games were strong competitions. With this tournament, Lexington has risen as a city that not only can field strong teams (we even have some world-class talent) and drink lots of bourbon, but also as a regional trendsetter and powerhouse in the fast-growing, facepaced world of hard-court bike polo.

Training teachers to be ready from the start By Camille Esch MCT

It seems everyone is down on bad teachers these days. But the truth is that simply removing the bad apples won’t fix our education problems. After all, it’s not as if there’s a large pool of superstar teachers waiting to replace those who are weeded out. Our best hope to improve education broadly and deeply is to strengthen the programs that develop and prepare the vast majority of the nation’s teachers. Unfortunately, many of those systems are in sorry shape. Research has found that teacher preparation programs across the country fre-

quently have low admissions requirements, low exit criteria and a lack of academic rigor. Certainly there are some strong and innovative teacher training programs. But the vast bulk of teachers receive training that is disconnected from what they will experience in actual classrooms. Coursework tends to be long on theory and short on practical training in such essentials as classroom management and how to actually teach specific subjects. The result is that beginning teachers often walk into their new schools with very little idea how to handle and teach a classroom full of kids.

This lack of preparation is unlikely to be measured — or even noticed. Few teacher education programs measure their graduates’ success as teachers, or ask graduates or their employers to evaluate the quality or relevance of their preparation. Although states are supposed to identify and assist programs that are low performing, they rarely do. Out of more than 1,400 colleges of education across the nation, states identify only 38 as having low-performing programs. Given the well-documented importance of teacher quality to educational success, government support for education schools should be

leveraged to require colleges to get serious about teacher preparation. That would mean tracking more meaningful measures of success, including information about whether graduates actually get (and keep) teaching jobs, what beginning teachers and their employers think of the quality of their preparation, and whether their teaching has a measurable effect on the achievement of students in the classroom. Sound impossible? It’s not. Louisiana has developed a strong data system that allows it to track where graduates of different preparation programs go and what kind

of effect they have on K-12 student achievement. The state also asks new teachers to rate how well their teacher education programs prepared them for their first year of teaching. Beyond just collecting this type of data, states should ensure that universities use it to improve teacher preparation programs. This will look different at every college, but for starters it could include tightening standards for program entry and exit. School districts should carefully collect data on how a program’s graduates perform in the classroom. And if, year after year, the data show dismal results for par-

ticular teacher preparation programs, then it’s fair for the state to shut them down, as U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has said should be done. But again, as with teachers, getting rid of a few bad programs isn’t nearly as important as strengthening the programs that will continue to educate our teachers. With unemployment so high, it may be hard to imagine a time when many more new teachers will be needed, but as baby boomers retire over the coming decade, we’ll need new teachers. And for the sake of children, we need people who are ready for the job on Day One.

UK guard Jon Hood handles the ball against Pikeville College at Rupp Arena on Monday, Nov. 1, 2010.

Cats cautious about looking ahead to Maui By Ben Jones

When reporters gathered around Jon Hood on Tuesday, he was asked if he was looking forward to UK’s upcoming trip. The sophomore guard said he was excited to head to Hawaii to play in the EA Sports Maui Invitational. Of course he would be. The only problem is that the Cats must first travel to Oregon for a game against Portland. “That’s real bad (to skip past Portland),” Hood said. “They have the kid who can really shoot the ball. We’re going to go up there, have some fun, try and get the win.” The Pilots are led by senior guard Jared Stohl, a deadeye shooter who’s averaging 16.7 points per game through Portland’s first three games. He’s also shooting more than 57 percent from 3-point range. Last year, he shot 47.8 percent from 3-point range, even though he shot 40 percent on

JONES Continued from page 7 of Kentucky could make the trip across the Ohio River to see the Cats play I-71 rival and Big East school Cincinnati. Sophomore Jon Hood (Madisonville, Ky.): A choice between either the Murray State Racers or Western Kentucky Hilltoppers would give two programs with a combined 35 NCAA tournament appearances a chance to test their mettle against their instate big brother. Freshman Stacey Poole (Jacksonville, Fla.): The Cats played Atlantic Sun Conference member East Tennessee

2-point attempts. Of his 255 shot attempts last year, 205 were from long range. Portland has raced to a 30 start, winning every game by at least 14 points. UK head coach John Calipari cautioned that the Cats will be challenged in the upcoming road trip, which features four quality opponents. The team will travel directly from Portland to Hawaii before returning on Thanksgiving Day. “This is a hard trip,” Calipari said. “This is a dangerous game … We’re on our way to Hawaii to play three teams that will be better than us, and this is going to be a learning experience.” Calipari said because the team is still so young, there will be plenty of lessons to learn. They’re the kind of lessons that can only be learned by playing quality opponents early in the nonconference. “There’s a lot of experiences these guys have to go through,” he said. “One of them is getting knocked down

by a team that you should beat because you weren’t ready to play. And you think you can turn it on at halftime but it’s too late.” Freshman forward Terrence Jones, from Washington, saw Portland play a few times last year and, along with Calipari, has been telling his teammates to be prepared. He often went to see the Pilots’ opponents, but usually saw a Portland win. Early last year, Portland beat Oregon, UCLA and Minnesota (then No. 16 in the country) playing at neutral sites. Hood, realizing his mistake earlier, didn’t shortchange the Pilots again. He’s looking forward to the game as a chance to figure out what the Cats will have to improve. Then they’ll get to Hawaii – for now, at least “the other” trip. “I think it will (be a learning experience),” Hood said. “It tells us what we have to do, tells us how far we have to go and where we are right now.”
