Kweli ‘occupies’ Memorial Hall By Joy Priest jpriest@kykernel.com

Talib Kweli, an American rapper who has been a relevant figure in hip-hop since the early 90s, visited UK on Thursday night to discuss “Hip-hop and Economic Recovery” with Bakari Kitwana, a journalist and political analyst who is known for his commentary on hip-hop. Kweli, whose first name, Talib, means “student” in Arabic and whose last name, Kweli, means “true,” answered questions from Kitwana in an inter-

view setting at Memorial Hall. Topics covered by the two hip-hop activists included new technology and its affect on music, illegal immigration and the recent “lynching” of Moammar Gadhafi, as Kitwana referred to it. But the most addressed topic was the Occupy Wall Street movement. Kweli said Occupy Wall Street was something he saw on Twitter first, and assumed it to be a one-day protest. “I wasn’t interested in it as a one-day protest,” said Kweli, who is originally from Brooklyn,

N.Y. “When I realized people were planning to stay I said ‘There might be something to this.’” Kweli said there are two sentiments present in media used to discredit the movement: Occupy is “just a bunch of hippies,” and it is a “leaderless movement,” to reach he replied, “good.” “You got to get on the right side of history,” Kweli said, referring to Steve Jobs as a “hippie,” and saying, “look where he got us.” Kitwana and Kweli compared the Occupy Wall Street

and Tea Party movements in their discussion, saying that the two garnered different reactions — the Occupy movement drawing a negative reaction from authority and the Tea Party movement being celebrated — when they were really demanding the same things. “The only difference is where they’re getting their information from,” Kweli said. “The Tea Party people are getting their information from Fox news ... Occupy protesters from more credible sources.” Kweli said this is the first

The week 9 Edge: Blackout edition Ground game the key for both teams on Saturday By Ethan Levine elevine@kykernel.com

Breaking down the key matchups in Saturday’s game between UK and Mississippi State.

UK defense vs. MSU rushing attack It’s no secret that the MSU offense is built around the run. The Bulldogs have executed almost 50 percent more running plays (293) than passing plays

(205), and even quarterback Chris Relf is an athletic option to run the ball. UK head coach Joker Phillips welcomes MSU’s ground game, as he is confident in co-defensive coordinator Rick Minter’s defense’s ability to slow it down. The strength of the defense lies in its senior linebackers Danny Trevathan, Ronnie Sneed and Winston Guy. Guy and Trevathan are the SEC’s two leading tacklers, while Sneed has had five seasons at UK to learn every trick in the book.

Phillips also endorsed his defensive line, and said that stopping a downhill running style has been a strength of his defensive front all season. With a full slew of defensive tackles available, including sophomores Donte Rumph and Mister Cobble and senior Luke McDermott, as well as the emergence of freshman defensive end Mike Douglass in the injured Collins Ukwu’s absence, UK has found youth and athleticism up front. MSU running back Vic Ballard, who has rushed for just under 600 yards through the team’s first seven games, averaging 5.7 yards per carry, favors a downhill running style in which Ballard hits a hole with as much

force and power as possible. UK’s run defense must close those holes and make sound, fundamental tackles to limit Ballard’s impact on the game. Phillips said the key to slowing down the offense is to limit big plays by the Bulldogs, and containing Ballard would go a long See EDGE on page 2

Childrens’ faces lit up at Kentucky Children’s Hospital as members of the community brought Halloween pumpkins to them. The Kentucky Blood Center held Operation Pumpkin at Kentucky Children’s Hospital Thursday, which focuses on providing an eventful Halloween for the children in the hospital. “No child should go without a pumpkin during the month of October,” Gail Bennett, the WUKY marketing development director, said. The Kentucky Blood Center, Orange Leaf and WUKY handed out foam pumpkins decorated by children of the community, along with candy, coloring books and a blank pumpkin that the children could decorate. During the month of October, Orange Leaf asked children who visited the frozen yogurt restaruant to decorate pumpkins for the hospital children. “We are trying to go above and beyond being simply a business,” Jason Thompson, an Orange Leaf operator said. “It is one more step to contributing to the community.” The members of Operation Pumpkin visited multiple kids, two of whom were Blake Baber, 5, and Cassidy Blair, 4. The children’s faces lit up as Stitch, the Wildcat mascot, and the members of Operation Pumpkin greeted them with pumpkins and smiles. Blake told everyone he was going to “put a blue face, purple eyes, yellow dots and a green star” on his pumpkin. Cassidy lit up when she was told she could pick out as much candy as she wanted. “My favorite part about Halloween is the candy,” she said. Bennett, Thompson and Jack Hillard, the Kentucky Blood Center representatives, served the community through Operation Pumpkin. “We’re excited about this event and making others smile,” Thompson said. “We are certainly looking forward to be a part of this next year.” Along with the month-long awareness, Operation Pumpkin will hold a Celebrity Pumpkin Auction Saturday, where pumpkins decorated by local celebrities will be auctioned off. UK celebrities include men’s basketball head coach John Calipari, women’s basketball head coach Matthew Mitchell and football head coach Joker Phillips. “To see the happiness in their faces means the world to us,” Bennett said.

Architecture students design into the early morning By Chase Sanders csanders@kykernel.com

Architecture students don’t study in the typical quiet and orderly library-like atmosphere. It’s actually more like a social event, with students yelling from one wall of a room to the other over a high volume of loud, shrieking machines. Late Wednesday night, two UK architect and design seniors, Ryan Bashore and Laura Mattingly, were hard at work in the basement of Pence Hall while most UK students were hanging out. ‘Most of the time there is a lot going on here, and everyone has to interact with their work,’ Bashore said. Apparently Wednesday wasn’t the only Pint Night the two have missed because they were plugging away in the studio or design lab.

‘I’m here this late pretty much all the time,’ Mattingly said. They agreed that during this time of the school year, they have to burn the midnight oil a little more than usual. ‘Since it’s midterms, I get to go home around 4 a.m. or 5 a.m.,’ Mattingly said. ‘But on a regular night, I probably go home around midnight — and that’s on a good night.’ She was exerting her energy on multiple pages of design reports for a project, which will have a lasting effect on the other side of the world. ‘I’m working on a project for Japan,’ Mattingly said. ‘We’re working to design a building that will help rehabilitate the disaster areas from the earthquake and tsunami.’ Victims of the March 11 natural disaster that ravaged the country will use the

building for educational purposes. ‘It will be a cultural center with a theater, lecture hall, resource library, tool and workshop,’ she said. Mattingly is working hard to finish her portion of the project by the end of this semester. ‘We just had our midterm today, and now we’re developing a site strategy, formal strategy and programmatic strategy. They basically show how the structure will be integrated into the potential sites.’ She said the project is one of her favorites since she’s been a student at UK because ‘of the positive impact it will have’ on so many people’s lives. Although the Japanese cultural center is one of her favorites, Mattingly expressed that she worked on her favorite project while studying abroad. See ARCHITECTURE on page 2

EDGE Continued from page 1 way towards accomplishing that goal. Edge: The UK defense in a close decision. The defense has been a strength of UK’s team at times this season, and they will have to be again Saturday if UK is to have a chance at defeating MSU. Expect an inspired performance against MSU.

MSU offense vs. UK playcalling In his weekly press conference Monday, Phillips made it explicitly clear how we would like the offense to function — throw to set up the run. Last week against Jacksonville State, however, the UK offense discovered a bright spot. Junior running back CoShik Williams, listed as the No. 3 back on UK’s opening day depth chart,

rushed for 148 yards on 22 carries. Against Mississippi State, UK will have to again run the ball to set up the pass, the opposite of Phillips’ philosophy on offense. Williams’ strength is his speed and his style of running features more runs outside the tackles than any other back to receives carries for the Cats in 2011. UK offensive line coach and run game coordinator Mike Summers said following

time he has seen constitutional rights exercised “in a tangible way,” and was “very excited about it.” During the Q-&-A portion of the evening, geography sophomore Benjamin Overstreet posed a question about Leon Trotsky’s belief that violent revolution was the only successful method against authority. He asked Kweli if he thought this was relevant to the nonviolent Occupy Movement. “The way America is built … it’s only going to be fair through violent revolution, but I know life isn’t fair,” Kweli said. “(Occupy) asks, how are these issues not being discussed? … And we’re going to make your lives inconvenient until you’re forced to discuss them.” Integrated strategic communications junior Zephir Griffin said she appreciated Kweli’s visit and recognized his experience, but did not feel he was any different than any other liberal commentator. “I prefer the more radical approach to revolution, and that doesn’t necessarily mean violent,” Griffin said. “It goes back to what Kitwana was saying tonight when he said we’re not angry enough. This talk to me felt like they are not angry enough. They were very safe.”

‘I went to Amsterdam, Netherlands over the summer where we figured out different ways to build on dikes, which are like dams that keep water from reaching the land,’ she said. Bashore also studied in Amsterdam this past summer, and worked on a few projects with Mattingly while he was there. They both gained a plethora of knowledge about architecture when he was overseas. ‘The Netherlands is almost like the architectural capital of the world,’ Bashore said, ‘and I’m able to use everything I learned over there on the project I’m working on now.’ Bashore, who will be graduating in December, literally works the night away. ‘I’m normally here about 12

hours a day, minimum,’ he said. Around 1:30 a.m., Bashore was configuring data on Rhino, a 3-D architecture computer program, for one of the two projects. He is making a progression of the Louisville Water Tower, from when it was first built. ‘The images illustrate how the Water Tower has transitioned over time,’ he said. He also is working on an innovative project for the Louisville Water Company with Michael Speaks, the College of Architecture and Design dean, and Freek Presyn, from a Belgium architecture firm called 51N4E. ‘They asked us to create some concept ideas for a Water Education Center,’ he said. He said their project is still in the beginning stages, but his team is making progress. ‘We’re in the research phase, and we will meet with the water company next week,’ he said.

‘In Time’ ends up out of time Everyone in Andrew Niccol’s “In Time” looks no older than 25, and that’s not some middle-aged optical illusion: In this futuristic tale, aging stops at 25, and those who wish to live longer must earn, steal or inherit time, which is the only currency. This makes for, as you might imagine, a world that looks like a college-town nightclub — one in which the young and handsome Justin Timberlake gazes at the young and lovely Olivia Wilde and says, “Hi, Mom.” Once you get used to this state of affairs, the movie’s fairly diverting for a while, as Niccol (writer of “The Truman Show”; writer/director of “Gattaca”) milks the concept for all it’s worth. We see “99 seconds only” stores; find new meaning in the phrase “Can you give me some time?” and hear a prostitute attempt a unique negotiation (“I’ll give you ten minutes for an hour”). Meanwhile, a story plays out: Will (Timberlake), a blue-collar worker from the poor

The Timekeepers (authorities who monitor any large exchanges of currency) are soon chasing Will, and he recruits a beautiful heiress, Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried, oddly bewigged) to help him as he tries to flee. All the while, his clock keeps ticking — literally, as it’s a running time code on his arm. It’s all very stylish and starkly elegant (with cinematography by Andrew Deakins, best known for his beautiful work on many Coen Brothers movies), and nicely cast, with quirky supporting turns by Cillian Murphy and Vincent Kartheiser. (Somebody should cast these two as brothers, by the way.) But as Will and Sylvia frantically race against time, “In Time” loses its steam; it’s an intriguing concept, rather than a compelling story.

the Jacksonville State game that if given space, Williams is a deadly asset to the offense. Last week, UK was able to give Williams the space he needed. This week, against a stiff SEC defense that is allowing fewer than 20 points per game, the Cats will look to provide him with more space to kick-start the offense once again. Edge: Mississippi State defense. UK has run the ball suc-

Rash enjoys working with his students, even if it does mean he has to be on-call like a doctor. ‘It’s really nice working with Ryan because he is ambitious and he takes a lot of his own initiative,’ Rash said. The night owl, Bashore, replied before he left at 4 a.m., ‘if I didn’t enjoy this then I wouldn’t do it, but I’m not the only one pulling long hours. A lot of people do a lot of interesting things around here.’ This is the first in a series of stories exploring late-night campus life.

Occupy movement empowers citizenry By Tyler Hess opinions@kykernel.com

You are amidst a historical time period in American history. This goes beyond the seemingly perpetual wars and debt crises, although it relates. The historical time period we must recognize pertains to the masses of people crowded on street corners and sleeping in public parks all across the world. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ and its 1,000+ offshoots from Seattle to Atlanta, from Lexington to Taiwan, can no longer be denied. The smug dismissals and uninformed name callings are becoming the minority in regard to the opinion of OWS demonstrators. According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, 58 percent of New York State voters agree with the views of the Wall Street protesters. And despite the empty rhetoric spewing from the television, 60 percent of voters understand the protesters’ views ‘fairly well’ or ‘very well.’ These numbers of approval merely affirm the

overall context that justifiably enrages an overwhelming majority of Americans. Over 46 million live below the poverty line and 45,000 die due to lack of health care annually. Tens of millions have been and are threatened with foreclosure; most due to illegal and unjust mortgage lending practices. The country’s governing elites are inept and silent on anthropogenic climate change; despite the catastrophic effects this will have on the future of life on the planet. Student debt has surpassed $1 trillion nationally. Many college graduates still pay tens of thousands in debt payments way into adulthood, often chained to lowwage jobs. Public unions and public schools are being swept aside by the financial elites. This is part of a trend toward private prisons, corporatized universities, and the ever-impending aurora of neo-feudalism. And within this national context, I am still confronted with headlines of ‘What Do OWS Protestors Want?’ This rhetoric is not only inane but also ignorant. The above observations are uncontroversial and de-

pict the stark realities among us. Whether on the corner of Main and Esplanade in Lexington, or in New York City’s Liberty Plaza, this outrage is beyond justified. Though this resentment is sometimes unorganized when expressed, this is to be expected. The United States has been largely sterile with regard to sustained public protests for the previous several decades. To compare OWS to a child, the baby was born on Sept. 17 in Liberty Plaza. At present, it seems many are criticizing this newborn movement for not already running after one month. In confronting the harsh realities of the world, it must learn to crawl and walk first. While the Declaration of Independence may have been signed in 1776, the Constitution was not completed until 1787. It took 12 years for this new nation to learn to run, to learn to articulate a clear set of values and governance principles. This time around, besides not allowing (wage) slavery and counting women as people, it may take quite a while to restructure our society around theories.

Today, the citizenry faces an omnipresent corporatemedia entertainment complex and an ever-burgeoning and willingly expressive police state. This historical time period should be relished, not condemned. The hundreds of coherent coalitions, foundations, intellectuals and nonprofit groups in the United States have already done plenty of work. It’s just that most of these groups and people have perpetually offered brilliant solutions to the nation’s various woes, but speak to the deafened and money-clogged ears of national and local governments. The demonstrations sweeping the nation are unique in their structure. While most protests occur for the duration of an afternoon, they usually never last for more than 24 hours. Most protests also have clear hierarchical structures. There are lead organizers and common protesters. Those in the front talk and shepherd the crowd, those in the back listen and obey. OWS is profound and unique in its organization. While most call it a leaderless movement, I see it as a leader-full movement. Everyone has the opportunity to be

a leader, and most will get that chance to facilitate an assembly or lead a march. Occupy Lexington’s assemblies happen daily at 6:30 p.m., and you’re welcome to join. Further, the internationally used consensus-based decision-making process allows people’s voices to (finally) be heard. Stories are shared and opinions given. No doctoral degrees, certifications or licenses are necessary to speak your mind at an OWS event. All these qualities create an atmosphere of non-hierarchical and democratic decisionmaking processes. It is understandable then that the international assemblies in public squares truly scare the plutocratic elites. That’s because this movement is focused on empowering the citizenry as much as it is about protesting the destructive practices of multi-national corporations. Not since the Civil Rights and Anti-War Movements in the mid-20th century has the populace had such an opportunity to engage in such large public displays of contempt for the status quo. Recent spurts of third-wave feminist, LGBTQ-rights or

environmental activism have largely been focused around policy and funding decisions; prioritizing work within the state structures. Most methods of these modern protests have been shown to be predominantly ineffective and inefficient. Am I supposed to ‘sign’ an online petition to get money out of politics and restructure the growing wealth inequalities? Do I call my ‘representative’ and ask he/she respond to public health concerns and not the hundreds of thousands in campaign donations from the oil and coal companies? These tactics are demonstrably laughable and naïve, for there is no way to vote against Goldman Sachs in the currently rigged and undemocratic voting process. Those taking to the streets understand this reality. And in taking to the streets, we try to grasp what is left of our First Amendment rights. And in doing so, demonstrate that the corporate coup hasn’t entirely succeeded yet. Let us all hope, and participate, in making this reversal continue. Tyler Hess is an agriculture junior.

US must lower ‘out-of-control’ incarceration rate BEN

NORTON Contributing columnist

The United States — the world’s supposed beacon of “freedom” — has, by leaps and bounds, the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. According to a 2006 Justice Department report, 7 million people — or one in every 32 American adults — were in prison or jail, on probation or on parole. Most other Western industrial nations have incarceration rates around 100 per 100,000 people. China, with a government whose infamous stories of repressiveness has been forced down our throats our entire lives, ranks second in the world, with 1.5 million prisoners — less than onefifth of the U.S., even with almost 4.5 times as many people. In the words of Ethan Nadel-

mann, of the Drug Policy Alliance, “The United States has 5 percent of the world’s population and 25 percent of the world’s incarcerated population. We rank first in the world in locking up our fellow citizens.” Moreover, things are getting worse. Admissions of U.S. inmates have been increasing faster than the release of prisoners. At the end of 2009 there were 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000. And this is only the beginning. Things get much worse with a look past the surface. According to a 2008 Bureau of Justice study, there were 3,042 black male prisoners per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,261 Hispanic male prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic males and 487 white male prisoners per 100,000 white males. The likelihood of black males going to prison in their lifetime is 17 percent compared to 8 percent of Hispanic males and 3 percent of white males. Furthermore, according to a

2002 Justice Policy Institute study, there are more than three times as many black men in jail or prison than in college. As associate professor of law at Ohio State University and civil rights advocate Michelle Alexander

The “land of the free” is really “the land of the fettered.”

explains in her book, “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindess,” these are nothing more than manifestation of 21st-century Jim Crow laws.

What these studies demonstrate is that not only do we live in an appalling, hyper-active police state, but that furthermore, an exorbitant, egregious institutional racism is endemic to our justice and political systems. Now, consider all of the previous information in conjunction with the fact that only two states in the United States impose a lifelong disenfranchisement upon former felons — on individuals that have already paid for their crimes. And guess what: Kentucky is one of those two states (Virginia is the other). What this means is not only that the country that purports itself to be “the land of the free” is really “the land of the fettered;” it means further that we live in, democratically-speaking, one of most shackled states of them all. In a democracy, every adult citizen has the right to participate in his/her political culture. Kentucky obviously does not meet this imperative criterion.

It is for this reason that Kentucky and its politics should be chastised. It is for this reason that Kentucky, that is to say, the people of Kentucky — you, me, all of us — must realize if we wish to take one more step toward democracy, toward a real, inclusive democracy, we must fight to automatically restore the voting rights of former felons. And it is for all of the previous reasons that the United States, that is to say, the people of the United States — you, me, all of us — must realize, if we wish to take one more step toward democracy, toward a real, inclusive democracy, we must fight both to mitigate the out-of-control incarceration rate of our unjust, racist, draconian justice system and to extirpate the socioeconomic and socio-political injustices responsible for the legitimate crime that does exist.

Dedication on the links and in life Women’s golfer battling through chronic foot pain By Paul Martin pmartin@kykernel.com

Many people take walking for granted. For UK golfer Megan Moir, every step of every day is a reminder of the medical condition she has. “Basically I have nonstop chronic pain in both of my feet,” Moir said. Moir was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis two years ago. It is the inflammation and tearing of certain ligaments in the foot. Most cases are not severe

and can be treated with ease. In Moir’s case, however, both her feet deteriorated over time and it became a serious issue. “The doctors had tried everything they could think of. Physical therapy and cortisone shots didn’t help. I tried 15 different shoe inserts, and nothing worked,” Moir said. “I finally went to a specialist in Cincinnati that works with the Bengals. He told me surgery on both feet was the only option.” This type of analysis

from a specialist would likely end the career of someone who plays tennis or basketball. Post-surgery requires one year of recovery time, during which you can’t run or jump. Moir was told she needed surgery on both feet. This April, she started with the left foot. Six weeks later the cast was removed, and golf was the priority. She won a tournament the following July, but the recovery would not be as quick as originally planned.

Young, old players developing chemistry By Sam Rothbauer srothbauer@kykernel.com

With one-and-done players rolling in and out of UK’s program the past two years, the Cats are forced to adjust to new teammates more each year than other teams in the country. Each year, they’re restocked with new players with new approaches to the game, new strengths and new weaknesses. With head coach John Calipari’s “player first” mentality, the squad essentially has to learn to play with an entire new team each season. The Cats are optimistic about each team, though. After having the opportunity to play together in a more competitive setting at the Blue-White Scrimmage, UK was able to step back and reflect on this year's team. “(We’re) trying to contain more chemistry together,” sophomore forward Terrence Jones said. “(We’re) just hav-

ing fun playing at Rupp, just going up and down as hard as we could.” In previous years, fans got the impression that the team would have to start from scratch, but with returning players who have experience in college basketball as well as a trip to the NCAA Final Four, UK is able to provide reassurance. “Every other year it seems like we were mixing a lot of people,” senior guard Darius Miller said. “Now that we have people that are familiar with the offense and everything that is going on around here, it helps a lot more.” For the four freshmen who were able to get one step closer to a real game in Rupp Arena, they walked away from the scrimmage earning double-digit points, and were excited about playing together on the court in front of fans. While the Cats were able to play together during Big Blue Madness, they were

playing for the fans and not for themselves. There were no defensive designs, no plays and barely any screens. The team was playing to showcase what they could do offensively, but as the season approaches, they’re getting a chance to prepare themselves for upcoming competition. “I think they did a great job their first time out,” Miller said. “It was more of a realistic game. In Big Blue Madness nobody really played. They did a great job for their first time performing in front of a lot of people.” This year’s Cats are piled high with length, athleticism and speed, and with this versatility they hope to invest in UK’s basketball program with thoughts of March Madness in mind. “It’s finally here, we just want to win,” freshman forward Michael KiddGilchrist said. “We are going to do what we have to do.”

“The operation made my left foot better, but I still have pain,” Moir said. “Golf rounds are six hours of walking, which is difficult. But, I am very fortunate I can still play the game I love.” Moir is using a pull cart for her golf back, which is acceptable under NCAA rules. She will delay the second surgery until next summer. “I can’t leave my team with just five players,” Moir added. “I will put off fixing my foot until we make it through the spring. There is a lot we would like to accomplish this year, so it can wait.” Head coach Golda Borst

has seen first-hand what Moir is going through. “Her heart and dedication is amazing,” Borst said. “She has never complained once about having this condition. It’s amazing how she can perform after going through this process.” This type of attitude from Moir was evident during a trip to Los Angeles last year. Moir spent six weeks there to help homeless people on “skid row,” which is one of the largest homeless populations in the country. “I just enjoy helping anyone I can,” Moir said. “I also volunteer at my local church

here in Lexington, and serve food for Lighthouse ministries at their shelter as well.” These activities were recognized by the NCAA, as she was named to the SEC Golf Community Service Team. This UK team is off to a fast start this fall. A thirdplace finish at the Texas A & M “Mo”Morial was followed up with a huge win at the local Bettie Lou Evans Fall Invitational. “This team is starting to believe in what they can accomplish,” Borst said. “We would like to be in the top 30 all year long.”
