Cats tickets expensive for Atlanta By Cody Porter email@example.com
On Friday, 250 students felt the luck of the Irish a day early when they won a ticket to see UK play in the NCAA South Regional in Atlanta. With days to spare before the Cats take the court in the Sweet 16 against the Indiana Hoosiers, there are still a few ways for students to get their hands on tickets. The unclaimed student tickets that were selected in the lottery became available to the public Monday at 4 p.m. “(Students) can go online to their account or they can come into our office and we can do it for them,” said the ticket office for UK Athletics. Nick Yonts, a computer engineering junior, was among a group selected for the lottery, but as is the case with many college students, prices were too expensive. “Tickets are way too much for a college student to afford,” Yonts said. “I was really excited when I saw it, but after reading the price my heart just dropped because that’s just for tickets.” Ticketmaster has all session tickets available in the upper part of the arena for $150.00. Yonts said that if tickets were closer to $100, it is something he would have looked into a little closer. If not prepared to make a whole weekend out of UK’s trip to “Catlanta,” Yonts’ plan can still be achieved. Tickets to session two, the Elite Eight, are available at $91.65 per ticket in the arena’s middle concourse. While going through the UK Athletics ticket office or Ticketmaster is a safer method of obtaining a ticket, sites such as StubHub!, Craigslist and eBay still offer fans a wide array of options. StubHub!, unlike the other two, can provide security for tickets with the FanProtect Guarantee. The site ensures tickets will be valid and if not, similar tickets will be located or buyers can receive a refund. Prices are a little steeper now that the game is drawing closer. A seat three rows back in section 227, behind the baseline, is currently selling for $205 a ticket. The cheapest ticket on the site that will get you closest to the court is selling for $265, and it is also on the baseline. Among the better offers made available on the likes of Craigslist and eBay in the Lexington vicinity were up to eight all session tickets for the South Regional on Craigslist. The seller, from Versailles, had six tickets divided into a group of four in row 10 of section 240, and two more in row 11. The other pair is in section 229, but the seller specifies that if all eight tickets are purchased together, the price would drop from $250 per ticket to $225. Another Craigslist seller is looking for only face value of $150 for four tickets in the lower part of the arena for all sessions in Atlanta. eBay offers many “Buy It Now” opportunities that have more than one ticket available for session two for as little as $112.00 per ticket. Cody Thomas, an accounting senior, made the trip to Houston for the Final Four nearly a year ago. While the difference is that he only had to pay $25 due to the large student allotment, getting to Houston, which is 990 miles away, is a much longer trip than one to Atlanta for this weekend’s games. Thomas said one of the reasons he wanted to go was to “just to be in the atmosphere of the Final Four.” “It’s a once in a lifetime experience,” he said. For those who didn’t win the lottery for tickets to the South Regional, Thomas said if you have the money, it is “totally worth going to.” “The whole atmosphere of being around so many UK fans that you know are going to be there and just being able to cheer (the Cats) on in the championship game makes it worth it,” he said.

UK Hoops Sweet 16 bound Cats defeat Green Bay 65-62, face Gonzaga on Sunday in Rhode Island By Les Johns firstname.lastname@example.org
Key player and Turning Point of the Game Senior Keyla Snowden secured the win with a 16-foot jumper that rattled all along the rim before finding the bottom of the net. The Cats had lost a 17-point lead and trailed 62-61 until Snowden hit the jumper with 16 seconds remaining. After a defensive stop, Snowden nailed two free throws to give the Cats the final 3-point margin at 65-62.

The Bad The second half was one of the worst halves of the season for the Cats. They turned the ball over 20 times, and completely lost a 17-point lead. They were out of sorts on offense and allowed too many good looks for the Phoenix. Stat of the Game Turnovers. The game featured the top two teams in the NCAA in turnover margin and they delivered a staggering number of miscues. Green Bay turned the ball over 24 times and the Cats turned it over 34 times, 20 times in the second half, which fueled the Green Bay run.

No result in actress’ trial LOS ANGELES — Four years after a sweeps week audience watched Edie Britt, the vampy real estate agent in “Desperate Housewives,” draw her last breath, a Los Angeles jury said Monday it could not decide the cause of her death. The judge in Nicollette Sheridan’s wrongful termination suit declared a mistrial after jurors said they were hopelessly deadlocked as to whether the actress’ character was killed off on the ABC show in an act of retaliation or simply for creative reasons. Nine members of the jury had to agree to return a verdict and the foreman told Judge Elizabeth White that after discussions over three days, he saw no way to reach a decision. The jury found 8-4 in favor of Sheridan, one shy of a verdict. The 48-year-old Sheridan had sought at least $5.7 million from creator Marc Cherry and Touchstone Television Production. The two-week trial offered jurors a behind-the-scenes look at the soap, which is to end this spring after eight seasons. The picture painted throughout the testimony of more than a dozen writers, executives and producers was often unflattering. Tabloid leaks from the set were a constant problem. There were salary

He recounted her fighting with costar Teri Hatcher over forgotten lines and said two other stars, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria, were “relieved” when they learned she was leaving the show. The jury heard numerous accounts of a 2008 rehearsal, which ended with Sheridan yelling, “You hit me! You can’t hit me!” at Cherry and storming from the set. She testified that he had hit her “hard” in the temple when she questioned a line of dialogue. He said he had only tapped her to demonstrate a playful smack he wanted her to give her on-screen husband. She complained and ABC’s human resources department investigated, and cleared, Cherry. Four months later, she learned Edie was being eliminated from the show and later filed suit. Much of the testimony focused on the timing of Cherry’s decision to kill off Edie.

Davis wins Cats look player of to avenge the year loss to award Hoosiers 1st Wildcat to receive Robertson Trophy for national honor Anthony Davis won the Oscar Robertson Trophy, given to the national player of the year by the U.S. Basketball Writers Assocation. Davis, who averages 14.3 points, 10.1 rebounds and 4.6 blocks, is the first UK player to win and the second freshman (Kevin Durant) to win in the 53-year history of the award. “Anthony Davis made an immediate and dramatic impact on college basketball,” said USBWA President Lenox Rawlings of the Winston-Salem Journal in a press release. “He has many skills, most obvious among them his ability to block and alter shots. Davis’ dominance inside solidfied Kentucky as a national title contender and brought Bill Russell back into the dialogue, shining light on the vital half of the game that people often ignore.” Davis will receive the award on March 30, in conjunction with the Final Four, in New Orleans.

Indiana’s buzzer-beater shot in the final seconds of the Dec. 10 matchup with the Hoosiers scarred the Cats in the regular season and blemished UK with its only regular season lost. After that, the Cats went on a 24-game winning streak before falling to Vanderbilt in the finals of the SEC Tournament. It was the sixth longest streak in program history. On Friday, the Cats have a chance to get revenge. “Real excited, just to play a team that’s beat us, a great team like them,” said sophomore forward Terrence Jones. “It’s going to be an exciting game. They’re going to come in with a lot of confidence since they’ve beat us before and give us a great shot.” Jones struggled when UK played Indiana back in December, scoring four points with six turnovers and one rebound. But given Jones’ recent numbers and his performance so far in the postseason, he could be the key to ultimately sending the Hoosiers home and advancing to the Elite Eight. “(Jones) has been pretty much dominating, especially in the stretches where we need him,” senior guard Darius Miller said of Jones in the SEC Tournament. “He’ll come out and make a lot of big plays, a lot of tough rebounds and stuff like that to get us going. He’s been a huge part of our success.” Since Indiana’s win over UK, the Hoosiers went on to earn a 15-7 record in the rest of the regular season. Of those games, IU was 13-1 in the state of Indiana and 2-6 on the road. And the Cats are famous for attracting thousands of UK faithful to the postseason sights. “Everywhere we go our fans follow us and give us a lot of support,” Jones said. “I’m definitely expecting it to be real blue in there.” But it is still March Madness, and so far the upsets in the tournament are enough to bust brackets nationwide. Regardless, this matchup is one that will have both teams fighting. “The crowd was really into the game,” Jones said. “It’s not going to be like that in Atlanta. It will be a different game and it’s going to be a different chance and an opportunity for both teams to show how much they improved.”
UK baseball moves up in rankings By David Schuh firstname.lastname@example.org
The UK baseball team is drawing some serious national attention after its sweep of two-time defending national champion South Carolina over the weekend. The Cats are the only undefeated team in the country at 21-0, and now find themselves two wins away from equaling the longest streak in SEC history, according to UK Athletics. Here’s a rundown of where UK stands in the various national rankings: Collegiate Baseball Newspaper: No. 2 | Last week – No. 16 USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll: No. 6 | Last week – No. 20 Baseball America: No. 16 | Last week – NR Each of those rankings are the highest since 2008, a team that won a school record of 44 games. “We had some good teams in 2006 and 2008 with those kids … but certainly nothing like this at this time of the year,” UK head coach Gary Henderson said. “To make a statement like this with what these kids have done, that’s been great for us.” The Cats play at the University of Cincinnati (8-9) Wednesday at 4 p.m.

‘Dreams of Tibet’ shows different angle Movie, airing Tuesday, expands view of country By Kayla Pickrell firstname.lastname@example.org
The College of Arts & Sciences’s “Year of China” intiative wants to enrich students on the culture and language of Tibet that the people of the U.S. don’t normally know about. Year of China is showing the film, “Dreams of Tibet,” at 6 p.m. Tuesday in White Hall Classroom Building room 118. Every week “Year of China” creates a new theme about China that includes a film and a lecture series. “These themes allow for students in the 100-level undergraduate course to gain a cohesiveness with the study,” said Kari Burchfield, staff support in international studies. The goal is not to leave Tibet out of the discussion and to expand the horizons
outside of the Dalai Lama, Burchfield said. “Students should go to the film because tension in the region is likely to continue,” said Jared Flanery, political science junior. “Many people associate the region with the cultural tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and this dynamic is central to the territorial conflict.” Tibet’s religious leader was thrown out of the area and out of control, leaving the area in a standstill as to who is leader. Its citizens must decide whether they will have China regain rule or if they should have another religious leader. “Tibet is such an oppressed unit in such a vast country,” Burchfield said. “The film addresses the Tibet question because there is a lot more going on than what people know.”
The film will explore why the U.S. is so fascinated with Tibet, as well as give a brief exploration of Tibetan history and the history of Buddhism. “The film really needed to tell what strikes us about Tibet,” Burchfield said, “about why we should care.” Along with the film, Shumei Shih, a professor from UCLA, will be speaking about Tibet on a personal level this Thursday. There is also a static display in the Lucille Little Fine Arts Library on Chinese musical instruments and a multimedia display available in the Hub of William T. Young Library. “This is a great opportunity for students to better understand Tibet and how we can relate to other cultures,” Burchfield said. “It’s a way to see how the country fits into the world at large.”
New reality TV show a hit for retailers SHELISA MELENDEZ Kernel columnist
Retailers have finally tapped into the popular wave of reality television. Last Tuesday the newest show in fashion reality TV, “Fashion Star,” aired on NBC and boosted sales for three big-name retailers. The show allows designers to present their looks to a buyer from H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s. The buyers then bid auction style on the looks. The highest bidder sells the merchandise in their store the next day. Aside from the buyers,
the designers receive feedback from designers John Varvatos, Nicole Richie and Jessica Simpson. Unlike similar fashion reality TV shows like “Project Runway,” “Fashion Star” offers both customers and retailers a key aspect in the fashion business: instant gratification. “Fashion Star” gives viewers the opportunity to purchase the merchandise selected by the buyers both online and in stores the day after the show airs each week. Although the show only received 4.6 million viewers during its premiere, all three retailers were pleased to sellout within hours of making the merchandise available. “Sales of ‘Fashion Star’ merchandise exceeded expec-
tations,” Macy’s spokeswoman Holly Thomas said in a Forbes blog post. This week’s episode is expected to draw in more viewers and hopefully another round of sellouts for the retailers. You can tune into “Fashion Star” on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on NBC. Shelisa Melendez is a journalism and merchandising, apparel and textiles senior.

Rally for regulations You are what you eat: benefits to locally-grown against ‘big coal, oil’ OBIORA EMBRY Guest columnist
What’s on your plate? If you do not eat locally grown, raised and/or produced food, more than likely you are eating food that is not real. This “food” has been chemically processed and refined while adding artificial ingredients to produce it in different shapes, sizes, tastes, colors and forms. Since our government allows genetically modified organisms to be consumed by humans and farm animals, our “food” may contain foreign genes, which have been spliced together in laboratories. In the 1950s, petrochemical companies started cheaply mass producing synthetic chemicals from petroleum and developed a partnership with the food industry that still exists today. This partnership made it possible for “food” to be mass produced and preserved for long periods of time while using a minimal amount of natural ingredients. The “food” we have been consuming is sold and marketed as food but does not taste, smell or have the nutritional value that food did prior to “the great
experiment.” If you were born prior to the unauthorized experimentation by the people of our food supply, then you grew up eating real, whole and natural food — grown and raised by your family, neighbors and/or community residents.
If you were born after 1950 and did not grow up eating locally grown, raised and/or produced food, then you may not know what’s on your plate.
However, if you were born after 1950 and did not grow up eating locally grown, raised and/or produced food, then you may not know what’s on your plate. The “food” we have been consuming has taken a toll on the natural environment that we need to live — the land, air and water; our individual and collective health; and our state’s economy. In putting an end to the toll
on nature, our health and the economy, we can heed the advice that George W. Carver gave while working at the Tuskegee Institute. In a 1916 article, Carver wrote, “few, if any realize the wealth within our county and the ease with which we can, not only live, but accumulate much above a living.” In doing so, we Kentuckians should resurrect our agricultural heritage and begin to value land and our connection to it by growing food locally. In addition, we should convene with farmers, elected officials, business leaders, educators, chefs, the faith community, community activists, the youth and other citizens to create a regional food system. The food system we develop can revitalize our health, nature and our state’s economy, while creating an alternative to the industrial food system. Save the date, register and make plans to attend the 2012 Bluegrass Local Food Summit. The three-day Food Summit is from March 22-24 in Lexington.

As a senior environmental science student at UK, I recognize the impact my school and my community are having on the global climate. PATRICK Despite incessant JOHNSON pleas from a sigGuest nificant portion of columnist the student body, the university and the community insist on contributing further to global climate change without any substantial discussion about moving toward cleaner, renewable options. Carbon pollution from coal plants is one of the leading contributors to global climate change, as it is leading to the creation of a thicker blanket around the planet’s atmosphere. This allows more heat to remain within the Earth’s atmosphere, causing global temperatures to rise. As a result of these rising temperatures, the entire planet is changing dramatically. Rising sea levels and more extreme weather will likely impact developing countries located on the coast and will lead to millions of deaths worldwide. I would like to support Lisa Jackson and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as they plan to establish new regulations regarding carbon pollution from coal plants. The new standards are referred to as New Source Performance Stan-
dards. These air quality protections will allow the EPA to focus on the industries that create the lion’s share of the nation’s carbon pollution and will also help reduce life-threatening air pollutants like dirty soot, asthmainducing smog and toxic mercury. Global climate change is real. And it has been proven time and time again by peer-reviewed scientific research to be directly influenced by human activity. As a young person, I am tired of big coal and big oil lobbyists influencing policy decisions that prolong the life of these extractive industries. These decisions are a direct result of greed and selfishness, and are remarkably shortsighted. Garnering public support for the New Source Performance Standards protections is extremely important as we continue to show the power of the people. The EPA should be commended for their recent Mercury and Air Toxic Standards, as this will save thousands of people from dying from mercuryrelated illnesses each year. However, the most important battle for my generation and for the future of this planet is the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We need to stand up to the big coal and big oil lobbyists and tell them that we are tired of their continued greed and exploitation. Support Jackson and the EPA as they embark on this crucial endeavor. Patrick Johnson is a natural resources and environmental science senior. Email email@example.com.

UK Hoops won a close game Monday night over Green Bay to advance to the Sweet 16 this weekend. After holding a 17point lead at halftime, Green Bay forced twenty Cats turnovers in the second half to not only trim the lead, but take it with two minutes left. Senior Keyla Snowden hit a jumper with 16 seconds left to reclaim the lead for the Cats. After a missed shot for the Phoenix, Snowden hit two free throws with five seconds left to seal the threepoint win. The Cats advance to play Gonzaga on Sunday in Bridgeport, R.I.
