Calipari’s conundrum

AEDs available on campus By Coria Bowen

A UK faculty member helped save a stranger’s life in a hotel while vacationing in North Carolina in 2009. As a result, more emergency awareness, as well as Automated External Defibrillator machines, have been brought to campus. It began when UK part-time kinesiology and health promotion faculty member Vicki Sageser heard the screams of a wife whose husband had collapsed from cardiac arrest and rushed to help perform CPR. John “Toby” Tyler, elected clerk of superior court for Bertie County, N.C., was the victim. Sageser said she performed CPR on Tyler for about 15 minutes until EMTs came and continued CPR. About five minutes later, paramedics arrived with an AED machine, which ultimately revived Tyler’s heart. Sageser said CPR alone only keeps oxygen flowing through a person’s body but does not restart the heart. An AED machine however, can revitalize the heart. “It is a machine that can deliver electrical shock to someone in cardiac arrest and possibly put their heart back into a normal rhythm that could sustain their life,” Sageser said. She also said every minute CPR is performed and an AED machine is not present, it reduces a person’s survival by 10 percent. Since his recovery, Tyler visited Sageser’s students to tell his story and to express the importance of everyday people being certified in CPR and trained to use AEDs. He also donated money to help Sageser purchase AEDs to put on campus. “She (Sageser) said how there were no AED devices where she teaches,” Tyler said. “So, I was happy to donate some money.” Because of Tyler’s donation, as well as the donation of another, UK now has three AED machines. One is located in the main lobby of the Taylor Education building, and two are located in Dicky Hall. One is in the main lobby of Dicky Hall and the other is on the second floor by the elevators. Sageser said she has trained 20-23 people who frequent both buildings to use the AED machines. In order to be trained in using AEDs, students must be certified in CPR first. UK students can register to take a responding to emergencies course, KHP 190. The course is a curriculum on the body that allows students to be certified in CPR, as well as trained to use AEDs and much more. “We train in responding to every emergency and not just cardiac arrest,” Sageser said. UK marketing freshman, Mandees Moazampour, said she has never heard of an AED machine before. “It’s definitely interesting,” Moazampour said. “I definitely think more people should know about them.” The Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross is See CPR on page 2


UK head coach John Calipari instructs the white team during the Blue-White scrimmage at Rupp Arena Wednesday night.

Coach finds some positives, more negatives in scrimmage By Les Johns

The pieces to the puzzle seem to be at UK basketball head coach John Calipari's disposal. The question is how do they all fit together. That question holds true for the season, much as it did for the Blue-White game Wednesday night. The Blue team defeated the White team 89-88 at Rupp Arena in a game in which several players switched sides. Two changed during halftime, another changed midway through the second half and junior Ryan Harrow even switched in the middle of a conventional three-point play. Freshman Archie Goodwin led all scorers with 32 points, connecting on 11-for22 from the field, 2-of-3 behind the arc and 8-9 from the free-throw line for the White team. Had he been perfect on his three free-throws with .1 second remaining in the contest, he would have forced an overtime. "No one wants to lose in any game even though it was a scrimmage game," Goodwin said. "The other team won, but it was a really good game." Freshman Alex Poythress added 25 points for the White team, connecting on 9-for-19 from the field. Six other Cats reached double-digits, including soph-

omore Kyle Wiltjer, who actually scored 16 for the White team and 12 for the Blue team. "Kyle is going to have to defend better," Calipari said. “Jon Hood (who scored 17 points) just had his way with the guy. I told Kyle he has to do other things than just hit jump shots, because if you aren't hitting them, then I'm going to have to sit you down." The White team, comprised of what most consider to be the likely starters, trailed the Blue team 46-38 at the half. Graduate transfer guard Julius Mays, who scored 13 points on 5-for-8 shooting, and freshman center Willie Cauley-Stein, who had 11 points and three blocks, were the standouts for the Blue team in the first half. Both were switched to the Blue team to start the second half. “I did alright. I played pretty hard the first half and then I got extremely tired," Cauley-Stein said. "In the second half my legs were kind of dead." The positives for the Cats? Eight players contributed, several players are capable of attacking the rim, Wiltjer and Mays will provide a solid stroke from the perimeter and Cauley-Stein and Noel combined for 12 blocked-shots. The negatives? Plenty, according to Calipari. The team

"We have a long way to go," Calipari said. "We don't rotate, we don't scramble and we aren't a great rebounding team. This shows our team that we have to be a great defensive team." Calipari wants the team to

focus on getting better month-by-month, day-by-day, starting Thursday with a 6:30 a.m. practice focusing on defense. "We will be fine — we lost a whole team," Calipari said. "We have a whole brand new team. We are who we are and it shows." This new team has some impressive pieces. It is too early to tell if they will fit perfectly together.

‘Spring Awakening’ coming to UK Auditions open for controversial play By Judah Taylor

After a successful show of “Les Liaisons,” that included four sold out performances, the UK Department of Theater is preparing for the next big show in the season, entitled “Spring Awakening.” Based on the controversial play of the same name by Frank Wedekid that was banned from Germany for its

portrayal of abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide. One time Broadway actress and UK professor Lynda Smith will direct the eight-time Tony awardwinning play on the UK stage. Smith will be holding open “Broadway-style” auditions for the play at 4 p.m. Thursday, in the Guignol Theatre. “Anyone can audition,” said Abby Sheridan, a theater

senior who has been in past UK productions. “You don’t have to be in the major (theater or dance) or minor.” Nancy Jones, chair of the UK Department of Theater, anticipates that over half of those auditions won’t even be in the College of Fine Arts. The play is a musical and required actors and actresses to sing. Smith asked everyone who comes to audition bring 32 bars of music they would like to perform, and said that accompaniment will be pro-


vided. “Everyone has to sing,” Smith said. The play is a musical, but because it is a rock-pop musical, hopeful actors and actresses should also know how to rock. “The thing we are looking for the most is commitment to the story-telling,” Smith said. “It’s a story that is going to require actors to take a lot of risks on stage, so we’re going to be looking for people who can really jump in and

A&S Dean drops out of UNR provost search By Lauren Thompson

UK Arts and Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh was recently selected as a finalist for the position of provost at the University of Nevada at Reno, but has chosen to continue his work here in Lexington. “I have withdrawn from the search at Reno,” Kornbluh said. “The College of Arts and Sciences has outstanding faculty members, staff and students.” Staying here means the dean can continue on with his three objectives he has been focusing on since he began working here at the start of the 2009-2010 academic year. The three main objectives being develop information technology in arts and sciences, “internationalizing the campus, and building interdisciplinary connections.” Since he was only running against MARK one other finalist for the provost position, KORNBLUH it was late in the search for Kornbluh to resign. UK President Eli Capilouto supported him by saying that he was a strong candidate for provost and “we wish him only the best.” Not being able to go further in detail, UK spokesman Jay Blanton said, “Given that the search is apparently in its final stages, President Capilouto said it would be inappropriate to comment further.” Kornbluh decided to stay, citing his pride in his position with the college. “I am honored to be Dean of A&S and do not want to leave,” Kornbluh said.

Tyler said that he encouraged his small community in North Carolina to purchase an AED and get training. “Whenever we have a big gathering, we take the AED where the crowd is,” Tyler said. Both Sageser and Tyler believe CPR certification and AED training can really impact a life. “I’m the most fortunate human being that you’ll ever hear about,” Tyler said. “I’m 67 now, I’ve got three grandchildren and without Vicki I would not have seen that third one be born.”

‘Stitches’ brings a smile to ailing children Playing the mascot a fulfilling experience By Morgan Eads

Many of the children at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital could use a smile. The hospital’s mascot, a wildcat kitten named Stitches, does its best to provide a little joy to the kids who are patients in the UK Healthcare system, as well as children at certain events around the state. Tryouts were held Sunday to choose the next lead mascot to play Stitches. There were five applicants to try out for the role of Stitches. A lead mascot and an apprentice were chosen. Allison Brown, kinesiology sophomore, was picked as the lead mascot, and Jahanna Wazir, human nutrition junior, was named the apprentice. “I had a dream of being a mascot in high school but wasn’t able to do it,” Brown said. Though she has not been a mascot before, Brown thinks her experience working with children and outgoing nature will help her in playing Stitches. She believes the role will

NBC cancels ‘Animal Practice,’ sets Nov. 14 return for ‘Whitney’ NEW YORK — The outlook for monkeys working in Hollywood got a little bleaker Thursday: NBC has bumped the zany veterinary sitcom “Animal Practice” from its lineup to make room for the Nov. 14 return of “Whitney.” Following heavy promotion during the London Olympics, the series debuted to strong ratings (and dreadful reviews ) on Aug. 12, but numbers have declined precipitously since. Wednesday night’s episode was the lowest-rated network broadcast during the hour, drawing just 3.8 million viewers. While NBC has yet to officially use the “c” word — cancellation — the move means “Animal Practice” has quietly been put out of its misery. The end of “Animal Practice” also means Crystal, the well-paid capuchin monkey who was the show’s biggest star — no offense, Justin Kirk — will now have to cross her little furry fingers in hopes of another “Hangover” sequel. But the news Thursday wasn’t all bad, at least not if you’re a Whitney Cummings fan. NBC will burn off three remaining episode of “Animal Practice” before “Whitney” re-

But NBC pulled “Whitney,” along with the quirky comedy “Community,” from Fridays a few weeks ago without immediately rescheduling them. NBC has yet to set a return for “Community.” Although the cancellation of “Animal Practice” suggests the network may have gone a wee bit too broad with its comedies this season, NBC has regained its footing with the modest success of new shows including “Revolution,” “Go On,” and “The New Normal,” all of which have been picked up for full-season orders. “Animal Practice” is the second network series to face likely cancellation, after CBS’ “Made in Jersey,” which was pulled from the network after just two episodes. Another NBC sitcom, “Next Caller,” wasn’t even that lucky: The Dane Cook vehicle was dropped form the network’s midseason schedule last week.

help her gain insight into the university. “I’m excited about getting to know a different side of UK,” Brown said. “I think it will open a lot of new doors and my eyes to a new perspective.” Wazir will also visit the children in the Kentucky Children’s Hospital and clinic, as well as going to the events Brown is unable to attend. “I’m really excited to interact with the children,” Wazir said. “They really light up when they see (Stitches).” She thinks her willingness to talk to strangers and understanding of children will aid her in cheering up the young patients. The person who plays Stitches has to be quick on their feet, said Cynde Estep, product line manager senior of UK Healthcare. Estep has been involved with the Stitches mascot since its beginning in 2008. As a mascot, Stitches has been around since fall of 2008, but as an illustration he has been around for longer, she said. But what does it take to be the mascot of a hospital?

Creativity, patience and quick thinking are vital, said Cory Allen, kinesiology senior and current Stitches mascot. “You become a different person for a few hours,” he said. When children are frightened of Stitches or try to get the mascot to remove his disguise, a quick reaction is sometimes necessary. Stitches is very successful at cheering up the patients, according to Allen. Some of the children at the hospital adore the kitten, he said. One child told Allen he wanted to be Stitches when he grew up and had learned the dances, while another calls himself Stitches’ biggest fan. The job does come with a few disadvantages. For one, the temperatures inside the costume can soar 40-60 degrees higher than the temperatures outside, he said. Even with the drawbacks, the job is well worth it. “I’ve seen kids go from being miserable and crying, to smiling like it’s their birthday,” Allen said.

Knocking down K Lair limits students’ dining choices When news first broke that university icon K Lair would be knocked down along with Haggin Hall next summer, hearts neither bulged nor broke. On the one hand, the long lines and rushed food at lunch would become a thing of the past; on the other, what are students forced by the university to be on meal plans supposed to do when K Lair closes? You’ll have the all-you-can-eat options in the far distant planets of South Campus and North Campus, home to Commons and Blazer, respectively. Or Ovid’s at the W.T. Young Library. That’s three locations for students to use their meal plan swipes, all generally serving the same relatively low-quality, poorly prepared foods.

As those who have eaten at Ovid’s may suggest, UK should offer any student who successfully figures out the chaos that is the “lining-up-and-ordering process” at Ovid’s a double major in tactical problem solving. The food is usually good, although staff under stress in busy periods have been known to undercook food, as one Kernel staff member found out recently when served pink chicken. Even when the risk of food poisoning isn’t an issue, the time spent between walking in the front door and getting your chow could be spent writing a novel or building a small house — such is the colossal wait time experienced most of the day. If the wait for food is bad now, wait until K Lair is no more and you have everyone and their dog on central campus pouring in to get

UK libraries should offer increased public access UK wants community involvement for sports and fine arts events, but apparently not for those of us who are still interested in broadening our horizons, though we are not enrolled students. (I am, however, an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute participant.) I refuse to believe I am the only person in Lexington who wants to continue on their learning journey. With great enthusiasm, I anticipate turning 65 so I can enroll in classes for free, though I already have attained degrees of higher learning. This semester, someone at the W.T. Young Library decided to cut the number of public access computers to eight. Every time I have been to the library since the new policy was instituted, I find many unused computers that are limited to student access, while one must wait around for some bimbo who is playing a video game to finally get off one of the eight public access computers. The reference staff has no way to override the "student only" limitation on the unused computers. Saturday, I decided to borrow a laptop, but the Media Center was closed. Last year, I wanted to use a public access in the Fine Arts Library, and they had only one; though again, student only computers sat unused. With Lexington's vibrant arts community, does the university library system

not believe people want to learn more about the fine arts, which are often considered a window into the culture that produces such works? I'm interested in prehistoric through modern works. Surely I am not alone in this interest. I have a community borrowing card, but with no access to the card catalog (which is accessed via computer), finding anything in this splendid collection of knowledge is a Biblical pursuit — seek and maybe ye shall find. I pay state taxes that go to the general fund, and some of that money does go to UK. What is the point of the community borrowing card privilege if one can't even access the card catalog? I also like to search for journal articles on electronic databases such as JSTOR. Making knowledge accessible to the community should be one of the functions of a state-funded university. Not everyone finds football or basketball engaging. Some of us simply love to learn. I sincerely hope the administrators who determine library policies at UK will take a more progressive attitude toward the community and re-designate more computers for public access or at least provide staff with a means to override the student access limitation when such computers are sitting unused. -Betsy Packard, Lexington, Ky.

their feed. Next year will once again see a record number of freshman enrolled on campus, meaning more students on campus will be looking for lunch – particularly in Central Campus. K Lair and Ovid’s barely manage to be enough; what will happen when you remove the former and have only the latter to serve the hungry masses? Lunchtime rush aside, K Lair is generally the quickest, most consistent and easily most convenient dining plan option for students on Central Campus looking to refuel. Never mind the fact that both Blazer and Commons are a long walk for students who may only have an hour’s break between classes on central campus — both are hardly appetiz-

ing prospects for those looking for a bite. Food is often nibbled on by flies in the untold time it’s been sat under the heat lights before you get to it. It’s not an option for students living in residence halls to not have meal plans, so there should at least be more options for them to choose between when using one of the five (minimum) meals per week they must sign up for. If the university is going to continue on insisting that students pay for dining plan meals, they should offer more options with wider and healthier choices. Whether that is by building new eateries, improving what’s already offered, including more on-campus locations in meal plans, or even all three, UK must do more.

iPad mini perfect for students When the first iPad came out in 2010, it was mocked as a quick cash grab that was nothing more than a giant iPod Touch. Two and a half years and 100 million iPads sold later, Apple’s tablets account for 91 JUDAH percent of InterTAYLOR net tablet traffic, Kernel according to columnist Apple. Apple’s newest iPad — the iPad mini — is sure to be just as popular. The only thing up for debate is the mini’s usefulness. A quick look at the guts of the mini show that when Apple Vice President of Marketing Phil Schiller said the mini was a “full iPad experience,” he wasn’t joking. The mini’s stats are equal to or better than the iPad 2 in every way, including price. The mini costs about $70 less than its year old cousin, and is only 1.8” smaller. One of the mini’s strengths is its portability. You can take it anywhere, for any reason. Once it’s in a purse or coat pocket you’re ready to go. For students, it’s an even

more useful tool. iPad’s have a legendary battery that can last all day. That’s a huge advantage if you’re a student who spends all day on campus. Tablets in general are usually free of the cell-phone and laptop “stigmata” that sometimes plagues technology use in classrooms. Some professors have been known to deny students the use of cell phones or laptops for the use of taking notes or making calculations, but usually are easier on tablet usage. The iPad mini can be used for more than taking notes, though. Students can record audio and video of lectures and browse the web with a large and beautiful laptop-worthy aspect ratio. They can even use it as a calculator and take advantage of thousands of apps geared towards college students and businesses, like Dropbox and Evernote — all things that other tablets wouldn’t do, or won’t do as well. What really sets the tablet apart for students is its ability to access e-textbooks — which are much cheaper than traditional books — and Blackboard. From anywhere. Students can upload an assignment at anytime and always have a

copy of the syllabus or textbook with them. Replacing tools and books with the iPad mini can take a lot clutter and weight out of a crowded bag or backpack. The mini is “as thick as a pencil, and as light as a pad of paper,” according to Schiller. It weighs only .68 lbs., and can be held for a long time before fatiguing its user. The only drawbacks to owning the iPad mini are the obvious ones. Typing on it could take some getting used to, and typing a research paper on it may prove tricky. Printing and transferring files off any iPad can be troublesome. There’s cloud storage, email and apps like Dropbox for transferring files but no USB port, and a special printer is needed to print directly from the tablet device. Those who own a laptop and smartphone may not need the mini, but those who have only one or neither may find it to be a useful companion. Pre-orders for the iPad mini start Friday Oct. 26. The device goes on sale in stores Nov. 2. Pricing starts at $329 for the 16GB model. Judah Taylor is a Kernel news writer. Email opinions@

Trio of 2014 recruits considering UK By Nick Jones


Sophomore Bria Goss drives to the basket during Big Blue Madness at Rupp Arena.

Mitchell’s leaders align Sophomore Goss draws strong comparison to Mathies By Alex Forkner

As the season gets closer, much of the spotlight focused on the UK Hoops team has shone brightly on A’dia Mathies, and understandably so. The senior guard has been showered with so many preseason accolades you’d think she has a complimentary rain cloud following her all over campus. By the end of the season, Mathies will be one of the most decorated players in the country. But here’s a question: What if A’dia Mathies is already playing with the next A’dia Mathies? Sophomore Bria Goss, like her teammate, is coming off a SEC Freshman of the Year season that extended all the way to the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament. They both started every game of their freshman season on their way to double-digit scoring averages. At the team’s media day Tuesday, Mathies, a team leader since she arrived at UK, said Goss would be one

of this team’s leaders, even as a sophomore. Goss considers herself a leader by example, a title head coach Matthew Mitchell would agree with. “What makes Bria so likeable, as a coach, and what makes her have a legitimate chance to have a great career here, is her work ethic and her attitude,” he said. “Her attitude is one of wanting to get better every day. When you have those kind of gifts that God’s given her — she’s just tremendously gifted — but then you couple that with the attitude of, ‘I really want to come out here and be good today, and I’m listening to the coaches that the way to be good is to work really hard.’ Then you have a chance to have a special player on your hands.” “A great career” is something Mathies is hoping to wrap up this year, maybe with a Final 4 or NCAA title, goals this team loves to talk about. But in order for Goss to achieve the same career as her mentor Mathies, who Goss said she’s watched play since she was a junior in high school, she must first have

another good year. Goss said she’s already noticed a jump in her comfort level from her freshman to sophomore seasons. “You feel a lot more comfortable — more comfortable with the team, more confidence in yourself,” she said. “I’ve been working hard in the offseason and I know my teammates have been pushing me, so I really feel like the bond I have with my teammates will make me go out there and be more prepared.” After last year’s stellar season, both by Goss and the team, increased expectations could lead to disappointment. Goss could struggle to hit her groove this year, which might hinder the team. But Mitchell isn’t worried. “People worry sometimes about a sophomore slump, and I’ve seen those things happen,” he said. “I would not bet against Bria Goss having a really good season.” And if the next A’dia Mathies and the current A’dia Mathies can play up to their potential, it could be a special season for UK Hoops.

Go Green. Recycle this

Trey Lyles, a power forward from the class of 2014, was on hand when UK kicked off the college basketball season at Big Blue Madness on Oct. 12. “It was outstanding. They really put on a show there and it’s neat to see how all the Kentucky fans support their team,” said Lyles’ head coach at Arsenal Tech, Jason Delaney. The fan support is something that stood out to Lyles more than anything during his unofficial visit. “It was just really impressive. The fan support for a midnight madness, getting 24,000 people there,” Delaney said. “Coming from the state of Indiana where basketball is huge, it’s neat to see it down in Kentucky as well.” The Indianapolis native was once committed to Indiana University, but according to Delaney, he has since re-opened his recruitment “to find the best situation for him and his future.” Since Lyles made the decision to open his recruitment again, there have been many programs that have made the trip to Arsenal Tech to see him. “Kentucky, Florida, Duke, Louisville, Michigan State, Georgetown, N.C. State, Stanford, UCLA, Gonzaga,” Delaney said. “Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.” The one school that hasn’t made an effort to see the standout big man is IU, and according to Delaney, they are no longer involved in his recruitment. Right now though, the 6-foot-10 forward is less concerned with his recruiting process and more concerned with his upcoming high school season at Arsenal Tech.

“He’s really focusing on the high school season, and once that’s over, then he will do the next stage and narrow it down,” he said. Lyles’ trip to Big Blue Madness was his last visit of the fall and is one that he will continue to think about throughout his high school season. Not only did he enjoy the event itself, but he enjoyed the company of the other 2014 recruits that attended Big Blue Madness with him as well. “He knows and plays on the same AAU team as JaQuan (Lyle), so they are good friends, so it was nice for him. And he knows Cliff (Alexander) from playing against him and they talk with Twitter and stuff like that. So he has good friendships with those guys.” Cliff Alexander is a 6-foot-9, 240-pound center who is a consensus top-10 player in the 2014 class. At 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, Lyle is a top-15 point guard in the class of 2014. Adding Trey Lyles to the group would make for an elite combination at the college level, and Delaney seems to think the three stars would work together quite well. “Trey is 6-foot-10, but he is not a back to the basket guy. That is one of the skill sets he has, but he is very good on the perimeter. So with a guy like Cliff Alexander, who is a presence down on the low block, I think they would go well together,” he said. “And then you have JaQuan (Lyle) who is a talented point guard.” UK head coach John Calipari is still working to obtain the final pieces for what is already an incredible 2013 class, but it seems as though he and the rest of the coaching staff has made quite an impression on Trey Lyles and other top recruits in the class of 2014.
