Amazon offers digital CD matches REX CRUM MarketWatch

SAN FRANCISCO — Amazon.com Inc. took another step toward improving its position in the digital-music market Thursday, launching a new service that will give customers free digital versions of CDs they purchase from the online megaretailer. Amazon said that the new, free service called AutoRip will initially feature more than 50,000 albums. In addition, any album purchased from Amazon since 1998 and is covered under AutoRip will be included.

When a customer buys a CD that is part of AutoRip, a digital file of the album will be added to his or her Amazon Cloud Player library. The digital version can then be played on a computer, tablet or smartphone using the Amazon Cloud Player app, as well as downloaded to those devices. Steve Boom, Amazon’s vice president of digital music, said the addition of AutoRip “adds value to owning music, which obviously benefits everyone in the music industry, including record labels and artists.” Among the titles available with AutoRip are Adele’s 2011 blockbuster “21,” Maroon

5’s latest album “Overexposed” and Pink Floyd’s classic “Dark Side of the Moon.” “This is an innovative move, and at the moment sets them apart from other music services,” said Tim Bajarin, president of technology-research firm Creative Strategies, about AutoRip. “It will be watched closely by Amazon’s competitors.” The biggest of those rivals, Apple Inc., offers more than 26 million songs for sale on its iTunes store. Apple officials didn’t immediately return requests for comment on Amazon’s

Apptitude: Avoid, or treat, the flu REID KANALEY The Philadelphia Inquirer

As the flu runs rampant, we sorted through some smartphone applications meant to help track, avoid and treat influenza and other common illnesses. If you are really sick, consult a health professional. HealthMap: Outbreaks Near Me, from developer John Brownstein, is free for Android and Apple. From a team at Boston Children’s Hospital, this app uses a variety of data sources, including the World Health Organization, Google and EuroSurveillance, to map health alerts all over the world. Tap “List” to see a feed of health-related reports — most of them flu-related at this time. In a separate section labeled “News,” a recap of 2012 health events noted worrisome trends such as last year’s doubling of U.S. cases of whooping cough and one of the largest outbreaks of West Nile virus ever seen in this country. Users are encouraged to submit both human and animal disease reports, including photos. Another HealthMap app is flu-specific. Flu Near You enlists thousands of volunteers to report weekly on flu activity in their areas. The results are displayed in disturbingly thick clusters of virtual pins on a map and a meter that swings from “none” to “high” depending on the severity and extent of symptom reports. From the app menu on Flu Near You, a “Vaccine Finder” maps locations of nearby pharmacies administering flu shots. CDC Influenza is a free iPhone app from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Tap “Influenza Activity and Surveillance” for the CDC’s weekly FluView update and other reports. Unfortunately, the maps and charts offered are difficult to view on a phone screen unless you tap for the “full screen view” to make them bigger.

AutoRip service. Amazon said it offers more than 21 million songs for sale on its MP3 store. The main difference between Amazon and Apple’s offerings is that Amazon sells physical CDs, while Apple only sells the digital files of albums and songs. The growth of digital music has changed the overall music market, with digital-sales growth outstripping that of CDs. Figures from Nielsen SoundScan showed that in 2012, total music units sold in the United States rose 3.1 percent from 2011, to 1.66 billion units. Of that number, digital-album sales climbed by 14.1 percent to 118 million albums. CD sales fell by 13.5 percent, but still surpassed the amount of digital albums sold with 193 million units. 01.11.13 | weekend timeout | 3

Don’t look ahead too soon, UK fans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — UK basketball fans are energized with visions of championship No. 9 dancing in their collective heads. It is beyond hope; it is nearly an expectation. LES JOHNS Anything less than a national title would be conKernel columnist sidered a disappointment ... in 2014. It is understandable to be excited over UK head coach John Calipari’s recruiting success, but as one former coach preached not that many years ago, fans should enjoy the “precious present.” And the present can be pretty darn good. The Cats were tested yet again Thursday night, this time coming out with a conference road win over the Vanderbilt Commodores, 60-58. Only two teams in the SEC have won on the road so far this season, and the Cats are among them. UK was in full control of the game, until an inexplicable 18-0 run by the Commodores midway through the second half. That stretch should worry Cat fans, and it has Calipari concerned as well. “They outworked us. They beat us to 5050 balls and they beat us to rebounds,” Calipari said about the second-half effort. Along the way, it appears, sophomore Kyle Wiltjer might need to learn how to defend, as he was abused the entire game by the normally lackluster Vanderbilt offense. Calipari’s squad responded down the stretch with big buckets and a crucial lastsecond defensive stop. Winning on the road in the SEC is not easy, even against the conference’s lower-tier. The Cats were led by sophomore guard Ryan Harrow, freshman forward Nerlens Noel and freshman guard Archie Goodwin, part of a group that likely won’t be in Lexington next year. Much like the past three teams, this collection of Cats won’t be together long. Noel, who scored 13 points and seven rebounds, and Alex Poythress, who added seven points and six rebounds against Vandy, have long been considered NBA Lottery picks. Goodwin, who had 12 points, five rebounds and three assists, had NBA scouts salivating over his second-half performance 6| weekend timeout | 01.11.13

against the Cards in late December. Even freshman forward Willie CauleyStein, who played multiple sports in high school and never completely focused on basketball until this summer, is being considered a high-first-round selection. You have but just nine more games at Rupp Arena (and the postseason tournaments) to see this group before they join the legion of former Cats at the next level. They deserve your support, and fans shouldn’t discount them by looking forward to next season when a different group of topranked recruits wear the blue and white. This team has four losses — all against good teams. Even the home loss against Baylor is looking somewhat better as the Bears have won five of their last six, including slaughtering Texas Tech, 82-48, on the road Tuesday to move to 2-0 in the Big 12. The team has endured its point guard being absent for several games due to illness, several sets of individual workouts (most recently with Poythress) and nearly a month of “Camp Cal.” Its only loss in the past five weeks was on the road to the No. 3 team in the country. The Cats have been improving every game and could easily find themselves among 10-20 teams that have a chance to make a run at the Final Four. “There’s probably 30 teams that could be in the Final Four, and I don’t think there’s any clear-cut national champion winner,” Calipari said Wednesday. “It’s great for all of us out there. Who’s going to have their team playing the best in March? Because that is what it’ll be about.” When asked if the Cats were in that group, Calipari said, “At this point, probably not, but by March that’s what our plan would be.” Dismissing this collection of Cats and counting on next year’s group to deliver No. 9 isn’t fair to either group. To be great this year, the Cats will have to grind out tough road wins like they did Thursday night, and as they continue to evolve they will likely get themselves in that kind of situation less often. If the Cats play like they did during the 18-0 Vanderbilt run Thursday, the last half of this season is going to be ugly. Otherwise, nearly anything is possible.

Hoops comes back to beat Aggies timeout sports

Edge Texas A&M, 65-62, in schools’ first meeting BOYD HAYES bhayes@kykernel.com One more game, one more step on the tightrope. Senior guard A’dia Mathies led No. 6 UK Hoops (15-1, 3-0 SEC) to a close 65-62 win over No. 20 Texas A&M on Thursday for a school-record 31st straight home victory. Meeting the Cats on the court for the first time in school history, the Aggies introduced themselves with a dominant first half, leading 37-31 at halftime. Frontcourt duo junior Kelsey Bone and senior Kristi Bellock set the tone, combining for 24 points and 11 rebounds in the first half. Junior center DeNesha Stallworth shared the task of containing Bone and Bellock with junior forward Samarie Walker. “We just tried to push the ball every possession,” Stallworth said. “Kelsey is a really big girl, so we just knew if she

scored a layup, she’d have to run all the way back on defense, so we tried to take advantage of that.” Capitalizing on Bone’s fatigue, the Cats clawed their way back in the second half, fueled partially by Stallworth’s seven second-half points. It was not Stallworth, however, but Mathies who steered the Cats to victory. “We knew it wasn’t a 20-minute game, especially at halftime. We knew it was a 40-minute game,” Mathies said. “We eventually got that spark we needed in the second half, and it came up with that big three.” The senior drilled a 3-pointer with 18 minutes left in the half, pulling the Cats within one point at 40-39, but it was just the first of her big plays in the half. After swapping scores, the Aggies still led by one point with 16 minutes to play, and Mathies drained from behind the arc to give the Cats a two-point lead. Texas A&M came back, however, giving themselves a lead

of three with nine minutes remaining on the clock. As the visitors were looking to pull away, Mathies cut across the top of the key and drained another three to tie the game at 53, sparking the Cats’ path to victory. By the time the final buzzer rang around Memorial Coliseum, the Louisville native had made nine of 20 shots from the field, finishing with 23 points. “I want (Mathies) to be the person with the most shot attempts every night,” said UK head coach Matthew Mitchell. “She’s really, really hard to guard when she’s shooting the ball the way she is now, and she was huge in the game. (I’m) really proud of her.” Mathies’ strong form has been a constant so far in SEC play, as she scored 20 against Florida and 17 against Alabama in wins last week. “I believe the SEC is the greatest conference,” Mathies said. “Every time you go out there and play you can take a loss. There’s no teams that you can say, ‘Oh, we’re going to beat them.’ There’s definitely not those. Everybody’s got to prepare every night and stay focused every day. I think it just goes to show how great of a league this is.”

UK stifles Vandy’s second-half run DAVID SCHUH dschuh@kykernel.com

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — UK head coach John Calipari and Cats fans alike have patiently waited for the day when freshman centers Nerlens Noel and Willie Cauley-Stein affect a game defensively in a way that their size indicates they could. That day came Thursday, as the big men did just enough to help the Cats to a 60-58 win over Vanderbilt in its SEC opener. The 3-point shot plagued UK’s offense for most of the night, as the Cats shot just 3-17 from behind the arc. Their defense of the shot in the first half, however, gave them a 35-24 halftime lead, holding the Commodores to 2-13 from long range midway through. Ironically, it was that same 3-point shot that got the home team back in it. Vanderbilt made six 3-pointers in the second half, while still looking timid anytime it entered the paint against Calipari’s big lineup. Coming out from halftime, Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings went to a zone defense, and he almost immediately

saw results. UK was no longer able to utilize its size advantage against the zone and, combined with poor outside shooting, went cold. Stallings saw his team surge to an 18-0 run for an eightminute stretch that gave Vandy the lead with under six minutes to play. “On a lot of the plays, Nerlens didn’t know which play we were running because it was so loud,” sophomore guard Ryan Harrow said. “That was the biggest thing.” The Cats responded, though, holding a three-point lead with just under 20 seconds to play. That lead was extended to five when, at the end of the shot clock, Noel put up a floater that went in, but appeared to be late. While the replay showed it was after the horn, the basket stood. “Oh, that was good,” Harrow said with a smile after the game, in between gasps for breath from a late-game elbow to the ribs. The home crowd, and its coach, felt much differently. SEE BASKETBALL PAGE 11

And if Mitchell wants to compare his sixthranked squad’s victory over No. 20 Texas A&M ALEX to a Charles Dickens novFORKNER el, that’s good enough for Kernel me. columnist The first half was the worst of times. The Cats looked rattled by Texas A&M’s athleticism. The Aggies scored at will in the lane, thanks to some nifty interior passing between post-players Kristi Bellock and Kelsey Bone. At halftime, A&M had doubled UK’s points in the paint, 24 to 12. A&M was hot, UK was not. The Aggies shot a sweltering 59 percent from the field, the Cats a chilly 38 percent. The double-double machine that is junior forward DeNesha Stallworth seemed to be

malfunctioning, scoring only five points and grabbing two rebounds before halftime. If not for senior guard A’dia Mathies and sophomore guard Jennifer O’Neill, UK could have said goodbye to a spring of hope and settled into a winter of discontent. But with the second half, there came the best of times. UK came out of the gate with purpose. Stallworth nailed a 3-pointer. O’Neill swiped at shaky dribbling, gathered a steal and dished to sophomore guard Bria Goss for a layup. O’Neill would then drive it herself, kissing the ball off the glass to give UK its first lead of the game, 41-40, with 16:42 remaining. From there ensued a physical, toe-to-toe battle, with UK becoming the aggressor on both offense and defense. The Cats played as if it was the age of wisdom, not the first half’s age of foolishness. No easy baskets were surrendered. A fullcourt press baffled A&M for a key stretch, holding them scoreless for more than three

minutes late in the second half. And when Aggies guard Peyton Little’s last-second shot to tie it flew askew, the roar of the Memorial Coliseum crowd welcomed the Cats directly to heaven, when in the first half it looked like they were going directly the other way. “I just can’t say enough about the effort in the second half,” Mitchell said. “We needed great defensive energy from everybody, and we just turned it up. Found another gear, another level we could take our defense to. They were 58 percent that first half, 32 field goal percentage in the second half, and that was more like a Kentucky defense.” Mathies, who led the Cats with 23 points and a team-high four 3-pointers, said she and her teammates were ready to compete for a full 40 minutes, just like the team mantra says they PHOTO BY JARED GLOVER | STAFF should.

After this weekend’s games against No. 6 Toledo, next weekend is No. 2 Penn State and the following weekend is No. 4 Lindenwood. The Cats are already in the mindset that they need to do well. The goal is to become ranked in the top 10 teams in the Southeast division by Feb. 18 in order to advance to the regional ACHA tournament. “We’re not going to even get a look unless we shock one of the teams we’re facing in the coming weeks,” said senior defenseman Brandon Tigrett. UK will look to get the first of those shocks on Friday and Saturday against Toledo at the Lexington Ice Center, where the puck drops at midnight. Admission for each game is $7.

UK hockey returns to the ice after a fiveweek break Friday and Saturday for a twogame home stand against the University of Toledo. UK (9-13-0) last played on Dec. 7 and 8, when it skated to two victories against rival Eastern Kentucky. No. 6 Toledo (15-6-0) heads into the weekend series as the favorites, but the Cats are in no mood to let the games be decided based on the form guide. “They’re going to come down and not know what hit them,” senior forward Dylan Rohar said. The Cats head into the games without the services of sophomore forward Jordan Ip, who will not be returning to the team this semester. UK head coach Rob Docherty has, however, gained five new faces on his roster, something junior goaltender Aaron Tenfelde is excited about. “It’s the first time this year we’ll have a full squad,” Tenfelde said. “Guys won’t have to be taking double shifts.

Stop-motion takes the lead in animation

LOS ANGELES — In a golden age for computer-generated animation, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has rewarded a comparably antique technique — stop-motion animation — with three of its five Oscar nominations for animated feature. “Frankenweenie,” directed by Tim Burton; “ParaNorman,” directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell; and “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” directed by Peter Lord, were all made using an arduous process that requires animators to adjust a puppet’s movement frame-by-frame to tell a story. The category’s two other nominees, “Brave,” directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and “Wreck-It Ralph,” directed by Rich Moore, were made with CGI. This is the first time that three stop-motion movies have been honored since the animated category was created in 2001. “What it says to me is that people really

do love this medium,” said Butler, whose zombie comedy “ParaNorman” is the second Oscar nod for the tiny, Hillsboro, Ore.based Laika Studios. “They respect it as an art form. They don’t just respect how it looks. They understand how much of a Herculean effort it is to make these movies — the hands-on, workshop-full-of-crazy-people aspect of it.” The animated feature category didn’t exist when “Pirates!” helmer Lord directed his last feature, “Chicken Run,” in 2000. “I feel like a pioneer,” said Lord, whose British-based studio Aardman Animations has been credited with helping revive the medium. “When we did ‘Chicken Run,’ it hadn’t been seen for a long, long time. I don’t like to talk about it as being some ancient craft like blacksmithing, but it is a craft.”

timeout diversions

BASKETBALL FROM PAGE 7 “I don’t want to spin this press conference talking about a call,” Stallings said. “Judging by my reaction, you could tell what I thought.” As a result, a Commodore 3-pointer on the next possession cut the lead to two, rather than tie the game. UK turned the ball over on the ensuing inbound play, giving Vanderbilt one last chance for the upset. But Kedren Johnson missed a desperation 25-footer at the buzzer, and the Cats escaped. “They outworked us,” Calipari said. “We were lucky to win the game. But, I’m happy we won.” Noel and Cauley-Stein combined for 20 points and 15 rebounds, but it was their defensive presence that made the difference.

Vanderbilt shot just 15-40 on two-point shots. While its big run in the second half was largely fueled by the deep shot, it failed to generate much more than that, and ultimately fell one 3-pointer short. Harrow continued his solid play, tallying 16 points, four assists and two turnovers. It was his fourth straight game with at least 15 points and four assists. UK’s focus will now have to quickly shift to 4 p.m. Saturday, when it hosts Texas A&M at Rupp Arena. It will be a quick turnaround, but after their first taste of conference play, the young Cats can approach the Aggies with a good idea of what they will now be up against on a weekly basis. “We didn’t respond like we were supposed to,” Cauley-Stein said. “We’ve got to change that. Every SEC game is going to be like that from here on out.”
