Giving the grand tour

Club for Caribbean students By Coriá Bowen

For most UK students, the Caribbean may be a spring break location. But for members of the Caribbean Student Association, it’s a way of life. “There are two objectives,” said Lodz Pierre, president of CASA, who is from Haiti. “One, to unite people of Caribbean ancestry, and two, to educate other people.” The Caribbean Student Association was established in November 2011. Members said it is important to build community and to help change misconceptions people may have of the Caribbean.

if you go What: Caribbean dance class When: Thursday at 7 p.m. Where: Student Center MLK Center Admission: Free

The current members represent Haiti, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, Martinique, Grenada and Jamaica. “When you say you are Haitian, the first thing that comes to peoples’ mind is Jamaica,” said Jean Prucien, CASA coordination director, who is from Haiti. “There’s a lot more to the Caribbean than what we see.” While studying in the U.S., CASA members said they have heard many stereotypes of the Caribbean. Examples of these stereotypes include the idea that there isn’t Internet in the Caribbean, the only genre of music is reggae and everyone walks barefoot on dirt roads, said Carlinthia Cox, CASA public relations chair who is from St. Lucia. “Every island has its flavor,” Cox said. “We are more advanced than a lot of people give us credit for.” Jonathan Rivera, CASA secretary from Puerto Rico, said he believes that American films have heavily contributed to stereotypes of the Caribbean. “American cinema puts misconceptions on stuff,” Rivera said. “We are subjected to so many American perspectives that are not based on facts, but what people were taught.” When it comes to fitting in and being accepted by American students, CASA members have each had different experiences — some better than others. “It’s hard for internationals to feel at home,” said Angel Cartagena, CASA vice president and an exchange student from Puerto Rico. Rivera said at times they struggle when it comes to embracing and understanding certain parts of American history, but they try to be open to it. “Each place has their own important figures,” Rivera said. “You always have to be proud of where you are from.” Cox said segregation in the Caribbean is not as apparent as they have seen it in the U.S. “The Caribbean is a mixture of cultures,” Cox said. “We are open to seeing how other cultures connect to each other.” When it comes to Caribbean culture, Rivera said food is a popular topic.

UK tour guide Adam Schilt talks with Jordan Farmer, a senior from Meade County, on a tour around campus on Wednesday.

A day in the life of a UK campus guide By Taylor Moak

UK tour guides are some of the first people prospective students and their families meet when visiting campus, and many leave a lasting impression on those in their tour groups. UK currently has 33 tour guides, said Christine Speicher, director of the UK Visitor Center. Last year, UK saw nearly 14,000 prospective students go through the visitor center, Speicher said in an email to the Kernel. She said when guests are included, UK saw 26,000 people last year. Taylor Cox, a political science senior, is one of UK’s tour guides. He said he “can’t think of a better job for students,” because tour guides have

influence in one of the biggest decisions in prospective students’ lives. “We aren’t focused so much on facts or dates,” Cox said. “We try to stress a lot more on individual students.” The skeleton of each tour is the same, said Logan Sparks, an integrated strategic communication junior, but each tour guide will make the tour personal by telling his or her own stories. Manny Cortez, a chemistry sophomore, said he tries to find humor in things that have embarrassed him to relate to prospective students about campus — like the time when he was in the silent study at W. T. Young Library and his phone rang. “My biggest fear as a tour guide is I’m going to lose a family,” he said, saying that he never wanted to get back to the Main Building and realize a family was

still at the Johnson Center. Cox said the stop at Blanding I on South Campus can be a “little hairy” on Saturday mornings in the fall, especially before football games, when students have been partying all night and are just making their way back to their dorm rooms. Speicher said she looks for certain characteristics when hiring someone to be a tour guide, including professionalism. She said she wants someone who will take the job seriously, and who is polished, trustworthy and a good storyteller. When on the job, tour guides are most recognized by their UK polos and khakis. Some of the tour guides said people in their classes often think those are the only clothes they have — because the guides usually lead tours on the same days each week. “People think we wear this all the See TOUR on page 2

3’s will be key against Florida Gators are prolific behind the arc, making 40.2 percent of 3-pointers By Sam Rothbauer

UK (23-1, 9-0 SEC) will face Florida (19-4, 7-1 SEC) and its threatening 3-point shooters on Tuesday. The Gators as a whole shoot 40.2 percent from behind the arc, led by junior guard Kenny Boynton, who averages 17.6 points per

game and 43.8 percent from long range. “You just know that they’re going to take 30, however you guard it,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “Let’s make sure they’re guarded.” The Gators lead the SEC with 10.5 3-point makes per game. They’ve attempted at least 20 in every game and have made less

than 25 percent in only two games. “If they make a lot of them (Calipari) said it’d be a hard game for us,” sophomore forward Terrence Jones said. “We’re just gonna have to play with our heads like we have the last couple games.” Florida head coach Billy Donovan said the Gators would take shots when they had the chance. “I don’t think you can be totally one-dimensional,” Donovan said. “But when we’re open, I want guys shooting it.”

UK has had success guarding the perimeter this season, holding opponents to 31.6 percent shooting on the season. But it’s not just closing out to contest the three that has to happen. Florida isn’t just a spot-upand-shoot team. It uses off-ball screens and player motion to free up shots. “Their shooting comes as a result of the things they do before that,” Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings said. “They get you into a See FLORIDA on page 4

Bar to open near campus, hopes to revive Euclid By Rob Ellery

A new bar is opening near campus, with one goal in mind. “All we want to do is create a place that’s fun,” said TBar owner TJ Gordon. Located at 500 Euclid Ave., TBar displays a “Top Secret” banner outside. Gordon said he wants to gain interest as he continues to re-

veal details about the business. From the staff to the atmosphere, Gordon said he wants to provide an exciting environment for his customers. TBar will have big screen TVs, high top tables, a jukebox and couches. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights they will have a disc jockey and a dance floor.

Newsroom: 257-1915 Advertising: 257-2872 First issue free. Subsequent issues 25 cents.

“We’re hoping to revive Euclid Avenue to what it used to be,” Gordon said. He plans to offer weekly happy hour specials and said he hopes the bar will be known for its yard cup drinks and all-sliders menu. The yard cup will hold mixed drinks in a tall, slender plastic cup that comes with a long straw. Gordon said they will offer both 25 and 100 ounce yard cups


customers will be able to keep upon purchase. The all-sliders menu may include 15-20 different types of small sandwiches, according to TBar’s website. Gordon said he can’t announce anything officially until he gets licensing approval from the city, but he hopes to open before March. He plans on having a smaller, late night menu.

science senior, said she was happy to hear about the new establishment. “I’m excited that there is a new place to fly to on campus,” she said.

TOUR Continued from page 1 time,” Sparks said, debunking the rumor. Cortez said the outfits mean many loads of laundry. As for questions from prospective students, the tour guides said one topic usually comes up. “How hard is it to get basketball tickets?” Cortez said. Sparks and Cortez said class size, Kentucky weather — “It’s Kentucky, it’ll change tomorrow” — and how to get involved are also common topics. As for the art of walking backward, Sparks said that’s not how UK tour guides show people around campus. Instead, they like to walk with families and get to know them, then turn around on each stop to face the group. Cox agreed. “I think we’re cool,” Cox said. “Not the backwards walking, geeky tour guides.” The tour guides also have a few crazy stories from their tours. “My very first tour, I fell down the steps of Funkhouser,” said Ethan Ritter, an animal science and biology junior, who also said a woman peed on herself during one of his tours. Ritter said it’s also neat when to students he’s led on tours as students at UK or when parents say, “You’re the reason my kids are at UK.”

out on tour On Wednesday afternoon, Cortez and Adam Schilt, a secondary English education sophomore, led two families on the 90minute tour around campus. The first stops included Patterson Office Tower — which Cortez described as a “North Star” for getting around a big campus — White Hall Classroom Building and Maxwell Place. After leaving the president’s home, Cortez and Schilt lead the tour to the W. T. Young Library. On the way, Cortez said it’s important to keep a certain pace, so he doesn’t compress the tour. Once at the library, the tour stopped outside the grass bowl facing Rose Street. There, Cortez and Schilt pointed out the directional cues to give their group a sense of place: the Fifth Third Bank building downtown, Patterson Office Tower, Memorial Hall’s steeple and the Kirwan-Blanding Towers on South Campus. Speicher said this stop is her favorite part of the tour because it’s where “UK skrinks” and people realize campus is smaller than they think. From there, the tour headed inside the library to a tapestry of Willy T. himself. This is where Sparks shares one of her favorite facts about the man whose name is on the library: while Young had money from horseracing, he was the inventor of Jif Peanut Butter. She said if it’s a rainy or humid day, she asks if her group

can smell the peanut butter from the factory on Winchester Road. After the library, the tour crossed University Drive to South Campus, where it stopped by Blanding I, so prospective students and their families could see what a “traditional” dorm room looks like. After seeing the room, the tour headed to the Johnson Center, where intramurals and recreational activities are discussed. Cortez and Schilt stopped their tour by Donovan Hall, where Cortez shared his favorite fact — the rooms were built to house three football players, but now house two girls. The final stops on the tour were Funkhouser and Memorial Hall. Jordan Farmer, a 17-year-old senior from Meade County, toured the campus with her parents and brother. She said UK is one of her four options for college. “(I’m) retouring with acceptance in mind,” Farmer said, noting that a deciding factor for her is how big she wants her college to be. Maggie Erdmire, a 17-yearold senior from Chicago, went on the tour with her dad. Erdmire had never been on campus before, but her dad s-aid he had 30 years ago for a basketball game. She doesn’t want to go to a school that’s too small, Erdmire said, and she liked UK because it felt more like a campus than a smaller school she’d visited.

Black Sabbath faces challenges LOS ANGELES — Iconic metal band Black Sabbath could be facing another hitch in its plans to re-emerge with a new tour and forthcoming album this year due to drummer Bill Ward’s unhappiness with the touring and recording contact he was offered. Ward released a public statement Thursday saying that the proposed agreement was “unsignable” and would cause him to lose his “rights, dignity and respectability as a rock musician.” The news comes less than a month after the band publicly revealed that it was forced to pull out as headliners of this year’s Coachella festival line-up due to guitarist Tony Iommi’s lymphoma diagnosis. The band’s album, slated for November of this year, has moved production over to the U.K., which Ward has yet to take part in. However, he has said that he’s ready to get on a plane and record with original members Ozzy Obourne, Geezer Butler and Iommi if he can work out a more suitable contract.

Horoscope To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 6 — Things could seem glued shut. Take extra time with hot, soapy water. Let things sit, and then the next time you try, there's progress. Use a gentle touch. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 7 — Slow morning relaxation that glides into a comfortable afternoon would be delightful. Things could seem rough, so go with an easy flow. It all works out. Gemini (May 21-June 21) — Today is a 7 — A brilliant scheme could lead to more coins in your pocket. Assess your wins and losses, and get organized. Schedule for success, and plot your moves. Cancer (June 22-July 22) — Today is a 9 — Think of ways to make money with new technology. If you don't try, you won't

“The place I’m in feels lousy and lonely because as much as I want to play and participate, I also have to stand for something and not sign on,” Ward said in a statement. Though he declines to mention any details of his proposed contact, Ward says that he’s unable to get any information from the band about the status of the U.K. recording sessions or whether or not there’s a possibility of him being replaced on the record or the tour. While bickering over contract agreements has nagged at the band’s previous reunion endeavors, Ward — the band’s original drummer since 1968 — says he is holding out for respect, not money. “After the last tour I vowed to never again sign on to an unreasonable contract,” Ward said. “I want a contract that shows some respect to me and my family, a contract that will honor all that I’ve brought to Black Sabbath since its beginning.”

know if it works. Finish up a big project. The rewards of diligence are sweet. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 9 — There are plenty of opportunities to prove yourself today. Change your perspective and try again. Put down roots with a commitment. Work smarter, not harder. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 6 — Your ability to make others think is attractive now, but you may not want to overdo it. Don't overlook a loved one's needs. Keep up the good work. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 7 — If you don't fight off demons, you'll never know if you're capable of courage. You don't have to look far to find them. They're cruel to you. Succeed anyway. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is an 8 — Distractions are coming at you left and right. Focus on what's really important for you. Trust your intuition and a good friend. Listen con-


sciously. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 6 — Think things over, just not too much. Be patient with your instruction. Odds are you're forgetting something, so write it down. It's okay if it goes slowly. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 7 — You'll find out what's needed. Trust in your ability to overcome obstacles, just like you've done before. A partner helps you communicate feelings. Relax. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 7 — Fine-tune your routine, and consider a someone's suggestion. You can't always get what you want, but don't let that stop you from trying. Review the instructions. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is an 8 — Disruptions may threaten your busy schedule, but it's nothing that you can't navigate. Try a new approach. Great reflexes and imagination come in handy.

CARIBBEAN Continued from page 1 “A lot of food that we eat is like the old American mentality where we use every part of the body and have wellbalanced meals,” Rivera said. Some Caribbean foods include beans and rice, fried plantains, goat, root vegetables and homemade bread and fruit juices. “People have food shops in their houses and on the street,” Pierre said. Prucien said he does not want people to think that street food stands are the only vendors that exists.

“People still sell on the side of the road, but we also have five-star restaurants and Dominos Pizza,” Cox said. Three important things to their culture are diversity in languages, dancing and Carnival, which is a three-day celebration with street parties and food. Common languages of the Caribbean include French, Creole, Spanish and Patois (a broken English). “When I hear that someone is from Haiti, I start to speak the language,” Pierre said. “It makes you feel warm and comfortable.” CASA members said they

wanted to create an environment that allows students to socialize with others from a similar background and culture, as well as inform people about the Caribbean. “They wanted a group that was welcoming for others and was grounded and important,” said Jacqueline Couti, CASA adviser from Martinique. “It’s nice to have an organization that’s grounded in reality.” CASA will be hosting a Caribbean dance class Thursday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. in the Student Center Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural Center. Free Caribbean food will be provided.

UK’s ONE campaign aims to better humanity The ONE campaign has joined the campus network, and now we are looking to reach UK students and let them know about the cause we are fighting for. What is the ONE campaign? It is a student organization that’s combating disease, famine and poverty in places where these issues prevent human life from flourishing. Through local advocacy we can raise BROCK awareness and educate the public so they MEADE share their voices with our congres& ALISHER can sional representatives who will ultimately BURIKHANOV decide future public policies. For example, AIDS is problematic Guest columnists across the world; however, it is at its worst on the African continent. Currently, infection outpaces treatment by a two to one ratio, but through the collaboration of African governments, organizations, private sectors and the support of the world, the beginning of the end of AIDS is tangible.

The ONE campaign aims to end this pandemic by 2015 by ending mother-child transmission of HIV, providing treatment to the 15 million people who need it and reducing new infections.

What is the ONE campaign? It is a student organization that’s combating disease, famine and poverty in places where these issues prevent human life from flourishing. The most effective method in combating famine and poverty is through agricultural progress. Through stability and improvement of farming technique, people can gain agricultural independence to feed their families and local community.

Submissions Please limit letters to 350 words or fewer. Guest columns should be no more than 600 words. Be sure to include your full name, class, major and telephone number with all submissions. Telephone numbers will only be used to verify identity.

These are the issues we as ONE members recognize. The way to accomplish these ambitious goals is through ONE challenges. The upcoming challenge is called, “Saving Lives’ Through SMS.” In countries where landlines are not established, cellphones are used in the health and medical sector so clinicians and patients can communicate to resolve medical emergencies in a safe and timely manner. The UK ONE campaign will be holding a campus-wide used cellphone drive to assist health care workers and reach the goal of 35,000 cellphones! ONE campaign, many voices, 35,000 cellphones. Join us and fight for humanity by liking the UK ONE campaign Facebook page and by coming out to one of our events or meetings.

UK needs to keep its ‘swag’ to beat Florida Calipari warns team of being too arrogant AARON SMITH Kernel columnist

Florida guard Bradley Beal said over the weekend that he and his team wouldn’t be intimidated coming into Rupp Arena, wouldn’t be daunted by facing No. 1 UK. “We have the swag where we're going to compete hard and try to get the win,” Beal said, according to The Gainesville Sun. “We're not going in there with any doubts just because they are Kentucky.” But UK’s got swag to match. “Confidence in your own style of play,” Terrence Jones

said when defining it for a group of reporters who may or may not have actually known what the word means. “I think we have a lot of it, too.” UK will need plenty as it embarks on the portion of the SEC schedule that actually poses a challenge. The opening SEC slate featured nine games against seven opponents. Those teams are a combined 19-38 in conference play. The upcoming slate features seven games against five opponents. Those teams are a combined 22-18. Take away Georgia, and that record moves to 21-11. So yeah, it’s about to get tougher. It’s also a chance for UK to prove its recent dominance has been more a product of its own play and not its op-

ponents’ vast inferiority. The Cats are No. 1 for a reason, to be sure. It can solidify that thinking over this next stretch. To do so, UK will have to find a balance in its mentality. Calipari said he would talk to his team about staying humble through its achievements. “There’s an easy transition from a swagger to arrogance,” Calipari said, “and that’s where you get beat.” Which led to the questions about swag. Of all the intangibles that could be talked about with this game — leadership, heart, even Calipari’s favorite will to win — it’s a word that also doubles as a description for clothes. I sometimes wonder what players like Jones really think as they have to

stand against a wall and talk about the merits of such things. Regardless, Calipari wants his team to have swagger, but not too much. It’s the old confident-not-cocky mantra of finding that fine line between two inexact characteristics. To do so, UK needs to remember what got it to where it is now — 23-1, a No. 1 ranking — starting to emerge as the designated “elite” team in the nation. Which also becomes one of the things we talk about when a team has so much going for it. After beating its last three opponents by a combined 83 points, have the Cats peaked too early? It is, after all, early February. Calipari said he believes in the theory that a team can peak too soon. “I’ve seen teams come out of the gate and I’m like, ‘There’s no way they can


The devil makes nada Fashion magazine internships may provide little income SHELISA MELENDEZ Kernel columnist

As the spring season quickly approaches, many fashion houses and magazines are posting the availability for their summer 2012 internships. Now more than ever, many companies are requiring that the intern receive school credit for their time that may or may not include a daily stipend. Just last week, former Harper’s Bazaar intern Xuedan Wang sued Hearst (Harper’s publisher) for violating state and federal wage and hours laws, and has be-

come a big buzz in the magazine industry. According to, Wang’s lawsuit states, “the prevalence of the practice nationwide, curtails opportunities for employment, (and) fosters class divisions between those who can afford to work for no wage and those who cannot.” I’m not quite sure if Wang was initially promised some form of payment prior to the start of her internship, but as a former intern in the fashion magazine industry last summer, I both understand and agree with Wang’s case. Yes, internships provide interns will valuable experiences and relationships and the obvious added bullet to one’s resume. However, simply receiv-

ing academic credit without any type of cash flow can lead to problems. I know a few fellow interns who worked with me in New York City who were from the midwest and had to foot the bill of living expenses for the span of three months, plus transportation to the internship, etc. Not to mention having to pay for the school credit hours. One anonymous editor told that internships are for those with access to money. “(Internships) foster and encourage (kids who have access to money) — not the kid who actually has to pay his or her own bills,” she said. Another anonymous editor showed less sympathy, saying, “I see magazines as a competitive industry that is closer to acting or art than, say, investment banking. In any creative industry, the first jobs are low paying (or don’t

pay at all) and people have to work other jobs or borrow to counterbalance those disparities.” It is understood that sacrifices must be made in life to achieve certain goals, but to what extreme does it go when the intern’s parents you are competing against lie in a much higher tax bracket? As you go out in pursuit of your dream internship, always keep in mind where you see yourself being and if that internship is best suited for you to get there.

from the front page FLORIDA Continued from page 1 scrambling rotation mode.” UK players see the longrange game as an acceptable strategy. “It’s an OK way to play,” Jones said. “You can live or die by it.” So far, Florida has been living by it. Six players have shot at least 28 3-pointers and made at least 34 percent of them. Even 6-11 forward Erik

Murphy isn’t afraid to step out behind the arc. He’s taken 24 shots and hit 75 percent of them. Match up Florida’s outside threats with sophomore Doron Lamb’s shooting game, and behind-the-arc play could take over. Lamb shoots 47.8 percent from the perimeter and averages 13.5 points per game. But the Cats don’t think they’ll fall into matching Florida three-for-three. “I think Coach does a really good job of making us run

our offense,” Jones said. One thing UK will have to make sure to do is get long rebounds after missed threes. Calipari said it will fall on the guards to move to the elbows and be ready to rebound. He said that’s been an issue for the Cats this year, but one that needs to be resolved. Calipari said this Florida team went through a similar stretch as the Cats, lacking physical play in a few games of the season. “They went through that stretch (when) they weren’t

physical enough and (Donovan) had those killer practices,” Calipari said, “and now all of the sudden it’s changed the dynamic of their team.” In the bulk of their schedule, the Cats aren’t shying away from tough SEC teams as conference play comes to a close and the rest of their season gets more competitive. “We feel every team we play is real good, which makes us step it up,” Jones said. “I think that’s what we’re gonna have to depend on this next game.”

sustain this,’” Calipari said. “There’s too much road between now and the end of the season.” UK still has plenty of road left. Seven regular-season games, then (for the situation that matters most) three SEC Tournament games and six NCAA Tournament games. But Calipari doesn’t think this team has maxed out yet. He noted defensive breakdowns against South Carolina as opportunities for improvement. And with a team full of young players, they’re individual talent will continue to increase over the next two months, which pushes up the ceiling for the whole team. Another easy way to

guard against UK getting complacent? That tougher upcoming schedule. The Cats can’t relax if it wants to finish out the season at optimal strength, starting with conference second-place Florida. Note, though, that optimal strength is not defined only by wins and losses. If UK wins out and finishes the regular season on a 22-game winning streak, fine. If UK drops one or two, but keeps getting better, regains that tinge of vulnerability that drives them even further, fine. “If they really, truly want to do something unique and special, every one of these experiences is building toward March,” Calipari said. “Everything. Our whole season is about that.”
