KET Governor Debate on education

Gatewood Galbraith Gubernatorial candidates Gatewood Galbraith and David Williams participated in a debate Monday evening at Lexington’s KET studios. The debate focused on

the topic of education. Each candidate discussed education spending and addressed the issues that college students face. All candidates were in-

vited to the debate. Gov. Steve Beshear was not present. The candidates will return to Lexington’s KET studio on Oct. 31.

Platform: Galbraith wants to implement policies like his education plan, “The Commonwealth Incentive.” He wants every college student to receive $5,000 for books, tuitions and fees for any institution in the state that can prepare students for employment. The Independent candidate wants to make the state as green as possible. He also believes it would be beneficial to make agriculture the means of producing wealth by implementing bio-industrial development in Kentucky. He is fiscally conservative, promises not to raise any taxes and supports growth in the private sector. He also believes there should be complete transparency when it comes to government records.

The gubernatorial debate Monday night was one candidate short of being a complete look into each candidate’s opinions on education in the state. Gov. Steve Beshear and his campaign did not to show up to the discussion. Each of the governor hopefuls started off the debate, which took place in Lexington’s KET studios, by saying Kentucky needs to be more efficient with its education spending. Gatewood Galbraith said that “2 million dollars goes to pay out-of-state parties, and half of that can be used to fund education.” David Williams, State Senate President, believes there is a more specific source of problem for educational spending. “There is a lot of inefficient spending in the state department of education,” Williams said. He used Jefferson County as an example. He said that the school district spends “more than any other in the state and has a far lower graduation percentage

than most districts in the state.” The candidates also discussed how important it is that Kentucky makes progress in education at every level. “I am very passionate about education,” Williams said. “I know what it’s done for me and people around me.” Galbraith voiced his impatience with the current administration’s outlook on education. “The current dysfunctional state of the governor in the capital will not be effective for the state,” he said. “We need significant gains, not just incremental ones.” Neither of the participating candidates is in support of federal government money that is offered nationwide for state education funding. Williams said that “federal funds have strings attached,” and Galbraith agreed that “federal funds are heavy-handed.” However, both agreed with President Barack Obama’s stance that something needs to be done about teachers effectively teaching students and school infrasturcture. In interviews with the Kernel

Williams wants to make education curriculum more focused on the core skills of math, science and reading. Williams is a strong advocate for the use of Kentucky’s coal. He wants to make sure Kentucky continues to be one of the nation’s best agricultural producers. He has also been a leader in his party with regard to cutting income taxes, small business taxes and trying to keep property taxes low as president of the State Senate. He believes he can attract business to the state by reforming the way businesses and state government are allowed to communicate. He also believes state government should be more transparent and wants to put budget and tax bills on the Internet so all Kentuckians can see how the government is spending.

after the debate, Galbraith and Williams also acknowledged issues facing college students. The graduating seniors will be in search of jobs, and they want to do what they can to keep them and their talents in the Commonwealth. “That’s why I’m very interested in the tax structure of the state,” Williams said. “If you’ve taken the time to go to school and work harder over time then you should be able to keep that money.” Galbraith believes wages and tax incentives are the key to bringing new business to the state, which he thinks will keep students close to home. “We need to get jobs from emerging industries into the state, because if we don’t have the employment base we won’t have jobs for graduates,” he said. Galbraith also said he wants “to distribute a $5,000 voucher to every college student strictly for the use of educational purposes.” One agreement that the two candidates were quick to point out was that they want to “put a freeze on tuition” for colleges and universities in Kentucky.

UK, SG Presidents give first university address By Chase Sanders

UK President Eli Capilouto and Student Government President Micah Fielden gave their first State of the University Address Tuesday. Fielden stressed that it will take teamwork for continued success at UK. “As students we must realize that it is no single person’s responsibility to help us have a fulfilling experience during our time here,” he said. “Rather, we must work hand-in-hand with our faculty to make our experience a success.” The two met on a BMW test track in South Carolina, while Capilouto maneuvered cars on the course. Fielden said that was when he knew Capilouto “could relate to students and understood their best interests” and was the right man for the job. During his speech, Fielden also asked the president not forget the characteristics he possesses that led to his hiring. “I ask that you continue to act in the best interests of the students at UK,” he said. Fielden also mentioned See ADDRESS on page 2

UK pairs with Israeli university Partnership aims to increase opportunities By Danielle Kaye

In an attempt to advance the international efforts for the university, UK President Eli Capilouto and University of Haifa Provost David Faraggi came together to sign a memorandum of understanding. The partnership aims to perpetuate the completion of goals that both universities share through the creation of a study abroad program at the University of Haifa in Israel. These goals include the welcoming of international students into the community and the collaboration of students and faculty in the pursuit of strengthening global connections. “The University of Kentucky is excited about the opportunity to partner with the University of Haifa,” said UK President Eli Capilouto in a news release. “With the phenomenal advances in technology and industry, strategic collaborations between postsecondary institutions play an

Course encourages new ideas, creativity and innovation By Sam Morrison

A new course offered at UK challenges students to think outside the box. Phil Kraemer, UK professor of psychology and associate provost for Undergraduate Education, is leading a class entitled “Ideas Matter,” where students are asked to question their fundamental understanding of what ‘an idea’ really means. Inspired by the annual IdeaFestival, Kraemer sets out to redefine the method in studying psychology. “It is a much more general course that extends beyond the boundaries of tra-

ditional psychology and connects naturally to other disciplines than typical psychology course,” Kraemer said. “Yet, it relates to a number of topical areas within psychology and cognitive science, especially the study of cognition. But also examines cultural issues: organized efforts to expose citizens to the important ideas of the day.” The course will further explore where ideas come from and how they evolve to influence and revolutionize the actions of individuals, corporations and countries. “We are especially interested in the kinds of ideas that matter today and how

they matter,” Kraemer said. “For example, globalization is in essence a new idea — one that affects how individuals, groups and entire societies behave.” Kraemer attributes the creation of his class to the annual IdeaFestival. Founded in 2000 by Kris Kimel, the festival provides people, organizations and companies from around the world a chance to collaborate viewpoints and redraw the boundaries of creative innovation. “Phil has taken a major step in the innovative way to approach, identify and define ideas,” Kimel said. “One of the goals for students in any field is to

ship through the exchange of faculty. While in Haifa, faculty discussed what other programs Haifa could offer to students that would be of interest for students and vice versa, said Susan Carvalho, the associate provost for International Programs. “When we visited with the Uni-

graduate having been schooled in creativity, and having this class built around the IdeasFestival, which exposes students to 30-40 innovators and performers from across the globe, adds more value to the recognition of creative thinking and real breakthrough innovation.” IdeaFestival 2011 was held Wednesday through Saturday at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts in Louisville. Kraemer took his class on a three-day trip to this year’s festival and explained after the trip why attending is so important for his students. “The course examines

Much of the magic of IdeaFest is feeling the excitement people (presenters and participants) have for cutting edge ideas of all kinds.” Abby Kerins, junior english major and spanish minor, is a student in Kraemer’s class. “The IdeaFestival was an outstanding experience that I would recommend to anyone,” Kerins said. “The presenters at the IdeaFestival exemplified that a for-

Billy Joel’s complete albums set to drop NEW YORK — Billy Joel plans to celebrate his 40th anniversary as a solo artist with two special releases on Nov. 8. The boxed set “Billy Joel — The Complete Albums Collection” (Columbia/Legacy) will include remasters of all 14 of Joel’s albums, including his 2001 disc of classical compositions “Fantasies and Delusions,” and a 15th CD of rarities including B-sides and covers of Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel” and “All Shook Up.” “This has been a long time coming, putting all my albums into one package,” Joel said in a statement. “I’d never seen them all together in one place until I got the box set. It represents a lot of work! It’s a little overwhelming, actually, looking at each individual album and remembering how much writing and recording, the time spent arranging and producing everything that went into each album.” On Nov. 8, Joel will also release The “Piano Man — Legacy Edition,” which in-

how proud he was of the 1,500 students who participated in service projects like UK Fusion. “This shows that at UK people care,” he said. He also hopes to continue to build an atmosphere at UK where students are aware about the international community. He commended students who went to Haiti to aid in establishing coffee farms for economic rejuvenation last school year. “It is an example of things being done by UK students to service a society that extends far beyond own at home,” Fielden said. UK will continue to support Haiti by selling Haitian coffee from those coffee farms that were established there last year. UK is also now home to two students from Haiti, who have the chance to experience the academic resources the school has to offer. They will take their knowledge back to Haiti with them to help in the effort to re-

He said that this year, UK’s freshman class is “the most accomplished incoming freshman class ever.” He also challenged students to reach their goals. “At UK we want to help you unleash your greatest potential,” Capilouto said. Dr. Robert Mock, vice president for UK Student Affairs, appreciated Capilouto’s message. “He spoke about UK’s history and how it’s important that we maintain it and continue it,” Mock said. “I think that’s important.” Steven Bilas, student government chief of staff, also thought both presidents spoke well. “I was really excited to hear what they had to say,” Bilas said. “They are both humble and approachable characters for UK.”

Capilouto Liberty and justice for ... all? needs to start taking action By Ben Norton guest columnist

It’s time for President Eli Capilouto to start looking forward. He has been said to be trying to learn the “soul” of the state, but after nearly three months in the office and many trips to different cities around Kentucky, Capilouto needs to turn learning into action. Becoming fluent in all things Kentucky would be a difficult task, and slip-ups will happen — Capilouto referred to Eastern Kentucky as “East Kentucky” during the State of the University Address Monday — but he must become acquainted with the state if he is to become an effective leader of its land-grant institution. Student Government President Micah Fielden called on Capilouto to fight in the interest of students, with a focus on new and updated buildings and keeping tuition affordable. Capilouto needs to show students he is passionate about putting them first. In his address, he spoke of his hopes for how UK can better prepare its students for an uncertain world. He said they should be taught concepts like critical thinking and creative discourse. This is a small step to show Capilouto cares for students, but as the president of a university, it’s his job. The hard part of Capilouto’s first major decisions will be balancing UK’s research goals in the past decade-plus with his proclaimed goals for undergraduates.

Still believe in The American Dream? A recent study from Northeastern should be the final nail in that coffin. Iswar Khatiwada, an economist at the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University, analyzed last year’s census data and found that 37 percent of young families (defined as families with parents under the age of 30) with children were living in poverty. Yes, you read that correctly: more than one-third of young families with children in poverty (and ostensibly still do). What’s more, this is a new record — the highest the level has ever reached. A new low. It gets worse. Institutional racism once again rears its ugly head as the study reveals that some of the highest rates are among black and Hispanic children, where close to 2-in-5 young families with children were living in

Embarrassed UK student expresses disappointment with campus faults By Jonathan Beam

poverty. Yet the picture isn’t complete. If such a large chunk of young American families are doing so poorly, surely most others must feel the financial onus of the recent recession. Once more, think again. Corporate profits in the third fiscal quarter of the very same year were, according to the New York Times, “the highest figure recorded since the government began keeping track over 60 years ago, at least in nominal or noninflation-adjusted terms.” Some may claim that this figure doesn’t tell us too much, as it isn’t adjusted for inflation. However, as the article reveals, “The government does not adjust the numbers for inflation, in part because these corporate profits can be affected by pricing changes from all over the world and because the government does not have a price index for individual companies.” Notice a disparity? Well, it’s only getting bigger. In 1976 the richest 1

As a student of the leading public institution in the state, I’m completely embarrassed. I have chose to keep my feelings to myself until I read the Sept. 26 issue of the Kernel. Here are the three main reasons I am ashamed. 1. I am embarrassed (but not surprised) that UK accepted payment from Friends of Coal to allow them to sponsor the UK-University of Louisville football game. The coal industry is responsible for the impoverishment and declining health of many Eastern Kentuckians and continues to erase ancient and diverse mountains from our state’s beautiful landscape. Yet, the university seems to think it’s fine to endorse this toxic product and its practices. Will next year’s game be sponsored by Marlboro? Only if they

can cough up $85,000. 2. Last week, Colin Beaven, author of “No Impact Man,” came to speak on UK’s campus. I was thrilled to have him here, and grateful for his speech. However, before making his point, he stated, “Now, I know some of you may not believe in global warming, but…” I almost turned red in the face. The U.S. is the only country in the world that still doubts years of extensive research pointing to global climate change. I’m embarrassed for the university that Beaven had to preface his speech with this. Climate change is real. It is happening and we need to act now. 3. And now I direct your attention to the back of Sept. 26’s issue of the Kentucky Kernel. There’s almost a quarterpage advertisement from Platinum Plus, a Lexington strip-club. It reads, “Need some extra cash … winner take all bikini contest.” Seriously? It’s embarrassing that the Kernel takes money from a strip

club to keep their business afloat. What message are you sending to our fellow female students? For how seriously the Kernel takes itself, even if there is a consistent lack of inserts, I expect more responsible advertising. As I state these three cases, I ask myself as well as the reader, what are we teaching ourselves? That as long as a corporation has money it can pull the strings of the university no matter if it practices ethical business? That it’s okay to doubt 98 percent of all information regarding the state of our planet’s climate? That we should only believe the information that serves our own self interests? That female students can sell their bodies as a legitimate way to make “some extra cash”? This is so embarrassing. Jonathan Beam is a media arts & studies and Spanish senior. Email

Intramural sports provide for students 256 teams signed up for football league By Matt Levine

It may not be high-level athletics, but it’s competition all the same. Natosha Harris, the Johnson Center’s intramural director, said a great deal of the UK community feeds its competitiveness with intra-

mural football. “We had about 265 teams sign up this year,” Harris said. Harris, who is in her first year as intramural director, said she has heard that intramural football is the most popular sport UK’s intramural program offers.

“I have been told that this is one of the growing sports over the last couple of years,” Harris said. Harris said intramural football has become so popular because the way that UK has set up the leagues has improved the competitive balance. “The way we have it

broken down here on campus are our A leagues are a bit more competitive and our B leagues can be at times, still competitive, but a little more recreational,” Harris said. “There are a lot of opportunities for a lot of people to participate.” Harris said this is effective because it allows teams to compete against other teams with similar talent levels. “People are not going to go into a game knowing they will get blown out because they know the levels to where their team can play,” Harris said. “Knowing that information and us

providing the options for students have made it a lot easier for those students to adapt to the sport and actually find it more fun to play.” Tyler Kmiec, a junior and member of Phi Kappa Tau, is the captain of his fraternity’s football team and said intramural football is a necessary change from homework and studying. “It is a real fun thing to do during the week,” Kmiec said. Kmiec said that along with intramural football, he enjoys participating in intramural dodgeball and tugof-war. Kmiec said he has a lot of confidence in his squad going into the season.

“We have a lot of talented freshman,” Kmiec said, “and I think we definitely have a good shot in our league.” He said he and his team have their eyes set on a championship, but can settle on a respectable playoff run. “Hopefully all the way, but we will try and win one or two games out there,” Kmiec said. “If we get a playoff win I will be happy.” He said it is excited for the season to begin and to see what kind of turnout his team gets. “We start on Tuesday and the atmosphere out there should be real good,” Kmiec said.

UK football faces top team in nation Aiming for a repeat of 2007 LSU win By Ethan Levine

On Oct. 13, 2007, the UK football team defeated then-No. 1 Louisiana State in triple-overtime to accomplish an upset that would leave the landscape of college football standing on its head. On Sept. 25, 2011, LSU was named the No. 1 team in the nation once again in the Associated Press weekly poll, just six days before its game against UK. “Every year you play them, they are going to be one or two, maybe three,” UK head coach Joker Phillips said. “You guys always seem to pick them the last couple of (games) No. 1 when we play them.” The Cats recognize the similarities between this game and the 2007 classic in Commonwealth Stadium and are using it as a model of the amount of work and preparation it takes to beat a team like LSU. “Just because it happened once, that’s not a guaranteed thing to happen again,” junior safety Mikie Benton said. “That’s something we have to buy into and hopefully work hard, and it can happen again.”

Beyond the similarities, plenty of differences between Saturday’s match-up and the ‘07 game also exist. First, Saturday’s game will be played in Baton Rouge, La., home of the Tigers. The Cats will be tested as their struggling offense takes the field in one of the loudest stadiums in the country. “It’s going to be really loud,” senior right tackle Billy Joe Murphy said. “We’ve got to listen to the quarterback and we’ve got to understand what our rules are and focus on our assignments.” Second, LSU is on track with its 2007 counterparts. That year, despite winning a national championship, the Tigers lost two games during the year, including the loss to UK. Since 2007, the next three national champions (Florida in 2008, Alabama in 2009 and Auburn in 2010) combined for one loss in 42 total games. So far in 2011, the Tigers are 4-0, including three wins over top-25 teams away from home, earning themselves a move from No. 2 to top of the polls for the week. “Of course, they’re a great team,” Benton said. “They’re No. 1

UK football against AP No. 1 teams

for a reason. Very tough team, very good defensively and offensively.” Lastly, UK has proved thus far into the season to be a worse team than the 2007 Cats. That year, UK carried a No. 17 ranking into its showdown with the Tigers after beating then-No. 9 Louisville in another thrilling finish just weeks earlier. This year, the Cats have struggled to 2-2 record through four weeks and suffered a 48-10 loss at the hands of their first ranked opponent of the year, thenNo. 15 Florida Gators. Coming off back-to-back home losses to Florida and Louisville, a game against the top team in the land seems like the last thing UK’s football program wants. But the players and coaches are confident that they can keep up with the Tigers, and that another shocking upset is just what this team needs to turn its season around. “We have faith in our coaches and our players just to be able to buy in and work hard and be able to turn this around,” Benton said. Murphy is one of a handful of seniors who watched from the sidelines in 2007 as redshirt freshmen when UK shocked LSU, and he knows that if UK works hard

and plays to the level the players and coaches believe they can, that another upset is possible. “It’s something that can be

done, it’s not impossible,” Murphy said. “We believe it can be done, and we’ve got to have a great week of practice.”


Independent film finds home at the Kentucky By Joy Priest

On Tuesday evening the Kentucky Theatre shows its love for the independent film community as it debuts “Open Five,” a film described as “One of the top 25 films of 2010,” by “The New Yorker.” The independent film event is hosted by Surreelfilm — the 10 a.m. radio slot on Monday mornings for 88.1 WRFL — in collaboration with the Lexington Film League and the Lexington Public Library. According to Surreelfilm host and cocreator, Chris Ritter, Open Five is a project the three groups have been planning for a while. “We’ve discovered a whole community of film lovers in Lexington,” Ritter said. “This is kind of an experimental thing … we want to bring filmmakers to Lexington, and if this goes good, hopefully we’ll bring this back in the spring.” Ritter said the collective chose to debut the film at the Kentucky Theatre because of its support of the independent film community. “The Kentucky Theatre is the premiere theater in terms of showing art house kind of films and independent films,” Ritter said. “It’s also the only theater in Lexington that decides to support independent films in that capacity.” Director Kentucker Audley, who stars as himself in the film, describes it as “an authentic story about being in your twenties and trying to make a living in music and filmmaking, while juggling romantic entanglements.” “‘Open Five’ is a story of Jake, an indie musician in Memphis, who hosts two girls

from Brooklyn in Memphis for a weekend,” Audley said. “It is a genuine and realistic movie with subtle humor and awkward situations.” Ritter said although the movie deals with “artsy” personalities, it is highly relatable. “As a recent graduate myself, the themes are more like ‘Oh my God! What’s next? Where do I go?’ It’s not pretentious at all,” Ritter said. “The conversations try to create a hyperrealism. The way What: Open Five they filmed it When: Tuesday at 7 p.m. was very im- Where: The Kentucky provisational, Theatre so it comes Admission: Free across as you and me would be having a conversation. I think it’s highly relatable in term of the issues the characters are dealing with.” Ritter describes Audley as “self-documentarian,” and “mainly interested in telling really human stories, and capturing people’s true personalities.” Open Five, a “love letter to Memphis,” is the film school graduate’s fourth film. “Our film has been well-received across the country,” Audley said. “I live in Memphis now, but I grew up in Lexington. This is the first time I've screened one of my films here. I grew up going to the Kentucky Theatre, so I'm very excited to have a screening there.” The free film screening will be followed by a film festival-style Q&A with the director.

Artist ‘Peeled’ images and memories for new exhibit SAB’s Cultural Arts committee redecorates Rasdall with another ‘innovative’ series By Joy Priest

The Student Activities Board has changed the face of Rasdall Gallery once again with its latest take on innovation. “Peeled,” — a photo exhibit running through Oct. 19 — employs Polaroids and aluminum. Louisville native and fine artist Letitia Quesenberry has put her bachelor of fine arts, in drawing and printmaking from the University of Cincinnati, to use in a process she describes as “dye sublimation on aluminum.” “These were Polaroids,” Quesenberry said. “What I ended up doing was taking them apart, and I scanned the insides.” The scanned images, which present themselves faintly on 18 large aluminum canvasses that currently line the walls of Rasdall, require a little interaction. Observers must move around to make out the details; the further one moves to the side, the more vivid the object in the pho-

to becomes. “I saw her work first at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville,” said Shannon Ruhl, Cultural Arts director for SAB. “It was also from the ‘Peeled’ series, so it was the same kind of work. It just struck me as something nostalgic. For me, it’s like looking at a memory.” Quesenberry said that’s exactly what these images are — memories that she wanted to change. “It’s funny, it’s such a personal work and it references such a short period of time that was sort of difficult,” Quesenberry said. “I made this work specifically to transform what those images mean to me. Transformation … is what I hope you get.” The exhibit at Rasdall, which is only a part of the entire “Peeled” series — the complete series is a 60-piece collection resulting from Quesenberry taking one photo every day for 60 days — captures the Cultural Arts committee’s goal, Ruhl said. (The entire exhibit can be
