Provost reflects on time at UK By Amelia Orwick

Provost Kumble Subbaswamy may be saying farewell to UK, but the impact he’s had on the university will remain for years to come. “Dr. Swamy,” as he is known around campus, spent time studying at Indiana University and University of California, before arriving in Lexington in 1978. “I had a couple of opportunities, and UK was the best in terms of professional prospects,” Subbaswamy said. “It Subbaswamy was a university with young, enthusiastic colleagues and high ambition.” Subbaswamy left UK for a brief period starting in 1997, but was recruited by President Lee Todd to become the university’s second Provost in 2006. “I worked for two other universities, but then Dr. Todd asked me if I would join his team as the provost and I jumped at the opportunity,” Subbaswamy said. During his 24-year tenure, Subbaswamy has had an influence on students, faculty and staff alike. “As provost, I would say that the first thing I’m really proud of is focusing a great deal on student success, which encompasses everything from recruitment strategy, how we transition students from high school to a university, setting general education curriculum; a range of matters,” Subbaswamy said. “We admit well-prepared students and do our best to make sure that every student we admit succeeds.” In addition, Subbaswamy said that he has helped contribute to research efSee PROVOST on page 2

The Student Government Senate approved a constitutional amendment last Wednesday that will donate excess money from the budget to the general scholarship fund. Any funds more than $60,000 from the previous administration will be donated, said SG President Micah Fielden. “We think the best thing we can do is that if we have extra money,” Fielden said, “we should donate to student scholarships.” The left over money rolls over to the next administration’s budget. Senate President Annie Tiu said on average, there is a $60,000 turnover from year to year. “We didn’t want to make it so that we weren’t turning over enough (money), in case

there’s a year with unexpected costs,” Tiu said. By allowing the next year’s administration to have the $60,000, it is enough cushion room in case something happens and the money is needed, she said. Each year the excess money varies from $10,000 to $120,000, Fielden said. “I don’t like spending money, especially unnecessarily,” he said. Fielden and Vice President Nikki Hurt have been discussing this for the past few months. Together with the Senate, they worked on a way to do something beneficial with the money. Tiu said the senators wanted to amend the Constitution so future administrations wouldn’t have too much extra money and make up new programs just to use the budget. “I just really think it’s See MONEY on page 2

PROVOST Continued from page 1 forts and diversity on campus. Over the years, Subbaswamy has impressed faculty and staff with his work ethic. Mike Reid served on the search committee and recommended Subbaswamy as provost. Since, the two have worked together in various leadership positions. “My experience with Swamy is that he has a brilliant mind and a very incisive, thoughtful approach to prob-

lems,” Reid said. “He’s deeply committed to academic excellence … I’m especially appreciative for his loyalty and commitment to the university.” Journalism professor Buck Ryan, who is involved with UK’s Constitution Day, enjoys Subbaswamy’s insights. “Swamy was never better than when he spoke from the heart about the importance of the First Amendment,” Ryan said. Although Subbaswamy looks forward to advancing education and research at University of Massachusetts

MONEY Continued from page 1 good so that new administrations will know every year how much money they are working with,” Tiu said. “As much as I support new student programs, we are going to have an increase of students coming to UK, so there will be an increase of the budget. Just because we have the money, doesn’t mean we need to make up programs for them.”

Subbaswamy’s colleagues are as fond of him as he is of them. “I’ve really enjoyed interacting with Swamy. I still go to him for advice and opinion on academic matters,” Reid said. “I’m looking forward to a long and lasting friendship.”

Fielden said SG is conscious of the money it spends. “It’s good for people to know that the people who have been elected are being responsible and that we don’t just waste money,” Fielden said. “We don’t do stuff that is inappropriate.” Other than the scholarship fund, the money can also go to non-student groups, he said. Tiu said senators decided that the money could remain in SG if there is a

larger project that needs the money. Eight people have to unanimously agree on the project — the president, vice president, senate president and the five members of the summer senate. “We like that it’s a direct way of giving the money to the students to who it belongs to,” she said. “It takes it out of our hands, it’s not SGA’s (money) … our responsibility is to make sure that money goes back to the students somehow.”

Actress may want out of show LOS ANGLELES — How much longer will the Dowager Countess of Grantham be hanging around Downton Abbey? That’s the question prompted by a report in Britain’s Daily Mail that Dame Maggie Smith wants out of “Downton Abbey” after its third season. According to the report, Smith asked series creator Julian Fellowes to write her acid-tongued character out of the series so she could return to her career on stage and screen. However, a representative for Carnival Film and Television Limited, co-producers of the hit PBS series says, “Series 3 is currently filming with Maggie along with the other cast. We do not comment on future story lines, however there is no truth in the story that Maggie is leaving the show.” What is assured is that someone will get written out of the show during the now-film-

She also addressed the status of Smith herself, whose on-set behavior doesn’t sound too far off from that of the Dowager Countess herself. According to Eaton, “Maggie Smith is a handful, it’s true. She’s very difficult.

“Outrageous Sex Myths” showing on campus Goal is to raise awareness about sexual health By Hadley Stein

The UK Sexperts want to educate UK students on the subject of STDs and have come up with an entertaining way to provide the information. The movie “Outrageous Sex Myths,” will be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Worsham Theater. The free 20 to 30 minute film is being shown in honor of National STD Awareness Month. The UK Sexperts, a group of UK students who raise awareness for sexual health and sexuality education on campus, say the movie is a great way to educate students about the month. The goal of this month is to bring to light the impact

UK housing residents sweat out the weather GAZI M. HUDA Guest columnist

Twice every single year, we, the graduate housing residents, suffer in the exact same manner. Although we have weather forecasts for as long as 10 days prior, the respected housing officials fail to anticipate the warm or cool weather ahead every time. We, the residents, suffer the hot and cold weather for two weeks or so before helping them to make a decision. Since they are not proactive, they just wait for enough complaints and flip the heater or cooler as the system works one way or another. The irony is that those belated decisions usually come at a time when we actually don’t need them. By the time, the “responsible” people

wake up and show off that they are doing their “job,” they flip the air conditioner at a time when the residents don’t need it at all. They would prefer just the opposite.

Our predicament gets even worse with the “contract” stating that we are not supposed to use our own appliances, no heater-cooler, nothing.

come to a “decision” and flip the air conditioner to cool only. Therefore, the residents have no heating for the last couple of weeks when every night the temperature is below the 40s, if not the 30s. Our predicament gets even worse with the “contract” stating that we are not supposed to use our own appliances, no heater-cooler, nothing. So we have to live through the chilly or hot temperatures, no matter what. You may just re-read the same story when winter arrives: just replace the word “cold” with “hot” and yes, we end up having the heater turned on when the temperature is above the 80s.

Once again this year, we survived a week of hot temperature. As soon as it is getting cold, the housing officials

UK linebacker to fill Winston Guy’s shoes Freshman understands the position By Cody Porter

Last football season paved the way for then new UK defensive coordinator Rick Minter to install his defense, which included a hybrid linebacker position. Coming off a season that saw him struggle, senior Winston Guy took to the role and thrived. His 120 tackles were second on the team and in the SEC, only trailing teammate senior Danny Trevathan. Now looking toward success in the NFL, UK head coach Joker Phillips and his staff have eyes on another instate guy to replace the ball hawk that was Guy. “Everybody is replaceable. Everybody better understand that,” Phillips said before spring practice began in March. Attempting to fill the void

left by Guy is redshirt freshman Miles Simpson. His name is one that many who follow football in Kentucky will probably recognize, but his accomplishments, when recruited by UK at Simon Kenton, came as a running back. But weight gain and practice have helped transform Simpson into one of the bright spots of the spring. Since signing with the Cats, Simpson has grown from his 195-pound weight then to 228-pounds when the Cats were allowed back into action at the Nutter Training Facility in early March. Although he may be replacing Guy, the freshman’s body now reflects a player more similar to the likes of Trevathan. Because Minter uses a 34 defensive package, the role that Simpson is taking on isn’t one that is widely seen.

Simpson said it is basically a down safety that plays in and out of the box. “You play a little bit of coverage and you play up in the box so you have to be big enough to go down and handle those 300 pounders coming on you,” he said, “but you have to be quick enough to go handle the receiver.” During the 2011 season, Simpson made an appearance in 10 games backing up Guy, collecting five tackles in his limited action. Simpson will have a chance to flourish in the role Guy had for just one year. “It’s hard to compare. They’re not the same player or the same athlete, but he’s doing a good job for us,” Minter said. “He understands the position pretty well and he’s farther along ‘cause he’s in the package for the second year so the knowledge helps him.” Following last Saturday’s

scrimmage at Commonwealth Stadium, Phillips said, “Miles Simpson, who is playing Winston’s position, makes big plays for us. We play (defensive newcomers) in coverage, we play them coming off the edge and in blitz.” Simpson said it’s been somewhat tough learning the spot because of his familiarity with the offensive side of the ball, but he’s “learning to be more aggressive.” “I’m getting it now. Coach (Chuck) Smith is a great coach,” he said. “He’s showing me the ropes and Coach Minter is a plus in that too.” Some of the things coaches are assisting with are what Simpson referred to as some of his weaknesses, such as “being more physical when receivers come on the ball.” “I like to just catch and run with them, but I need to learn to be more physical,” he said. UK linebacker coach Chuck Smith said Simpson is


A fashionable farewell Columnist signs off after 3 years of designers, trends, styles SHELISA MELENDEZ Kernel columnist

Fashion cannot be explained nor defined; it simply is. It is the love of fashion that draws thousands of industry executives and celebrities to different cities and countries to watch models walk down a runway sporting the newest trends, all in celebration of a week that revolves around nothing short of just that — fashion. It is through the love of fashion that one can express his or her innermost personality and convey it to the world without feeling like a product of convention. It is the love of fashion that causes thousands of editors, photographers, reporters and stylists to get paid a lot less than they probably should for the amount of hours spent in meetings, photo shoots and run thrus. And it is due to the love of fashion that I decided to start a fashion column at the Kernel.

Three years ago, I decided to share “the love of fashion” with UK’s campus; and despite what you may believe, fashion is incorporated into our everyday lives. My purpose for Common Thread has always been to share the many different facets within the industry and show that it consists of more than Versace, Louis Vuitton and Prada. Although major designer labels are responsible for mass amounts of press during fashion week, it is the Targets and H&Ms of the world that are making fashion much more affordable and buzzworthy. Throughout these three years, Common Thread has addressed the latest in fashion news — from the royal wedding to fashionable sponges that add flare to your kitchen sink. No matter if you’re from a small town in eastern Kentucky, or a major city like Chicago, fashion is what you want it to be. Trends come and go each season; eventually making their way back around just a few years later. But, it is the true fashionista who walks to the beat of her own runway song and creates her own trends. The greatest trendsetters don’t care what others think when they get dressed in the morning, just ask Betsey Johnson! As I prepare for graduation and the start of the next chapter in my life (working

for a very fashionable company … exciting I know), I hope that in both your remaining years at UK and years to come after, you allow

yourself to try new and even old trends. But I ultimately challenge you to find the common thread in it all.

easy to coach. “What makes him good is the fact that he is a smart kid, he is a heady kid, he's coachable, he works on what you tell him to work on and you can see that after 10 practices he gets progressively better and better and better at the position,” Smith said. Guy’s effect on Simpson has yet to have an opportunity to be seen on the field, but he says he has studied tape of the soon-to-be NFL player. “I used to watch how (Guy) was really violent with his hands when he was trying

to get off blocks. I try to mirror that because that’s another weakness,“ Simpson said. “He’d always come in there swinging his arms. He was fast enough to get past them, but if he got caught up he would always be using his arm.” Having the opportunity to play for three more years in a system that he is growing into thanks to a skilled tutor makes his future bright, Minter said. “His experience will get better and better all the time,” Minter said.
