Rutgers protected coach, not players
MIKE BIANCHI Orlando Sentinel MCT Mike Rice was not fired as the basketball coach at Rutgers on Wednesday because he abused his players. He was fired because you and I and the governor of New Jersey and everybody across the country found out about his abusive behavior. This scandal is a miniaturized version of Penn State, which knew all along about the heinous allegations of child sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky, but only distanced itself from Sandusky and fired head coach Joe
Paterno after the transgressions became public. Such is the state of our fine institutions of higher earning, where defending the brand is more important than safeguarding the kids. On the NCAA website, the first sentence about the organization says, "Founded more than one hundred years ago as a way to protect student-athletes, the NCAA continues to implement that principle with increased emphasis on both athletics and academic excellence." That lofty goal seems laughable today, when it's becoming more and more clear that the No. 1 mission statement among college
athletic administrators is, "Take whatever measures necessary to avoid embarrassing THE PROGRAM." "When you boil it down, this is exactly the same story as Penn State and so many other programs," says Ed Berliner, senior media consultant at TheUndefeatedImage.com. "They all think they can get away with it and cover it up and that nobody will notice. That's crazy in today's world. If they would just do what needs to be done from the outset, they'd be much better off." ESPN obtained and aired a video Tuesday showing several instances of Rice going berserk on his players at practice. He force-

ging up coal, gas and oil since the Industrial Revolution, and this has been a contributor to climate change. The second speaker was Brigadier General Steven M. Anderson, a 31-year member of the U.S. Army, who discussed climate change in relation to national security. “Our overreliance on oil constitutes the greatest threat to our national security,” Anderson said. “One thousand Americans have died protecting our oil lines and moving it from point A to point B.” Anderson also said that for every 20 trucks carrying oil, there are 175 soldiers protecting it. We need an environment that stimulates a green economy and uses renewable resources, he added. “For the first time ever, we are funding both sides of the war,” Anderson said. “Fuel is what is funding war assets. One billion dollars is given to Iran each day in which they use that money to make bombs to harm Americans.” Anderson believes the country needs a department of defense energy reform and need to start using more solar panels, wind energy systems, hydroenergy systems, geothermal energy systems and waste-to-energy biomass systems to stop being so reliant on non-renewable resources. The final speaker was Bob Inglis, who was a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and founder of the Energy and Enterprise Initiatives. Inglis presented possible solutions to climate change grounded in principles of free enterprise. “We need a true-cost comparison between all fuels and the result of that, we believe, is that free enterprise will solve our energy and
climate change challenge,” Inglis said. Inglis said that fossil fuels get away with a lack of accountability in their prices, and true cost comparison is necessary to identify these hidden costs for oil. “Sustainability is like profit; making a profit is sustainable and not making a profit is unsustainable, and we need a sustainable future,” Inglis said. Each of the speakers had the same message to give everyone, which is that climate change is real, and something needs to be done to minimize its effects sooner rather than later.
Forum discusses climate change
Experts addressed the climate change issue in relation to faith values, national security and free enterprise Thursday night at a forum in the Student Center. Showtime was in attendance taping the speeches for a documentary called “Years of Living Dangerously,” which will air in early 2014. Paul Vincelli, an extension professor within the UK Department of Plant Pathology, described the event as a way to give students and others a different perspective on climate change, rather than bland scientific views. The first speaker was Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist from Texas Tech University, who discussed the issue from the perspective of values anchored in faith. “Science is full of facts, but we need our values to help us decide how to interpret them,” Hayhoe said. “Most Christians believed that God created Earth and it was good from there, but that is not the case anymore.” Hayhoe said the Bible tells people to love their neighbors and self, but contributing to climate change is not a way of loving others. “The data is there, the facts are there, yet others choose not to believe climate change as a problem. The temperature on Earth has raised 1.5 degrees in the recent year, increasing the chance of flooding and drought,” Hayhoe said. “Our assumption that the climate will go back to normal is not an applicable assumption anymore.” Hayhoe said people have been increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air by dig2 | weekend timeout | 04.05.13
fully threw basketballs at players' heads and crotches. He shoved players in the chest and back, snatched them by their jerseys and yanked them around the court. He yelled profanities and homophobic slurs at his players. Of course, ESPN is the same network that employs Bob Knight — the maniacal ex-coach who was fired at Indiana for physically abusing a player — but that is another story altogether. Even though Rice was a mediocre coach at an irrelevant program, it's all about protecting the brand — even when it's a bad brand. "It all comes down to ego, power and money," Berliner says. "Welcome to big-time college athletics."

Facebook unviels new Android interface
BRANDON BAILEY san jose mercury news MCT MENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook on Thursday announced new software for Android phones that promises to "put people ahead of apps," by showing photos and updates from the social network as the central feature of a smartphone's home screen. The new "Home" software puts some of Facebook's most important services front and center on a phone, making them easier to use and in some cases giving less prominence to mobile apps from other companies. Analysts said that may set the stage for more competition in the future with Google and other appbuilders. Home will come pre-installed on a new smartphone made by HTC, but it will also be available starting April 12 as an app for other Android phones through the Google Play store. Demonstrating the software at Facebook headquarters, CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised a crowd of reporters and analysts that it will "turn your Android phone into a great, simple social device" — making it even easier to check in with friends while standing in line at the store or killing a few minutes between meetings at work. While phones and computers have traditionally been designed around programs and apps, Zuckerberg said, the new software is intended to emphasize "people first" because it displays photos and updates on the phone's primary screen automatically, without forcing the user to open a Facebook app on the phone. The software also integrates text messaging and Facebook's own messaging service in a feature called "Chat Heads," which displays a small photo of the person sending a message and lets users chat with friends without interrupting other functions or apps on the device. By making it easier for smartphone users to access Facebook's services, the company is clearly hoping to increase their "engagement" and deliver more mobile advertising to those users. Zuckerberg said the new Home software won't show advertising, to start. But when asked if ads may eventually appear in "cover feed," the new feature that displays large photos and updates on the phone's home screen, Zuckerberg answered succinctly: "Yup." 04.05.13 | weekend timeout | 3

All eyes will be on the top-12 finalists of University Idol as they perform at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Singletary Center for the Arts. Ryan Seacrest, make way for new hosts. Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and Delta Delta Delta sorority, in partnership with the AcoustiCats, the all-male a capella group on campus, created the philanthrophy event to showcase the singing talents of the Lexington community and raise money for the Lexington Cancer Foundation and St. Jude’s Children Hospital. Online auditions ended March 3, and the 12 final contestants will perform live. The audience will deter-
mine who makes it to the final round by “liking” the contestant’s photo on the University Idol Facebook page. First- and second-place winners will receive a cash prize. Jeremy Lewis, president of SAE and active member of the AcoustiCats, developed the idea for the event. “Being in Fine Arts and AcoustiCats I usually know the talent, but was very surprised,” Lewis said. “Voting online is not predicting anything. It’s all up in the air.” As of Wednesday, 400-500 tickets had been sold for the event. Lewis is hoping to sell around 1,000 tickets. The event’s Facebook page has over 90,000 views. Lewis is planning on making University Idol an annual event. He
predicts it can be monumental. Brian Carter, a music director from New York, helped put together songs for the event. “It is a wonderful and unique philanthropic event full of great talent that is nothing that’s been done at UK before,” said Patrick Zimmerman, member of SAE. Tri Delt has set a national goal to raise $15 million for St. Jude’s in five years. Getting involved in University Idol was a new way to raise money and have fun in the process, according to Emily Dicks, Tri Delt philanthropy chair. “We hope to bring a new, exciting event to campus that is new and fun for all the attendees, as well as raise money and raise awareness for LCF and St. Jude’s,” Dicks said.

Davis headlines Spring Fling ANYSSA ROBERTS email@example.com For students seeking a positive experience this weekend, UK Black Voices will host a Spring Fling fundraiser at 8 p.m. on Saturday at Memorial Hall. The event will raise funds for the Express Yourself Youth Fest, an event that brings youth together to enjoy clean entertainment, which will take place in July. “I wanted to have an event every year that young people can enjoy,” said founder Nicole Johnson of the Express Yourself Youth Fest. “I want it to be an event where people can perform and be introduced to different types of art.” Johnson said last year’s Express Yourself Youth Fest was paid for primarily out of her own pocket, so she decided to start up the Spring Fling comedy show to help raise money. Spring Fling will include the comedy styling of Spike Davis, a mini fashion show featuring designs by an up-andcoming designer, a performance by the UK Black Voices Choir and a mini step show. Johnson chose to bring in Davis to headline the event. “I wanted to find someone who was somewhat well-known to attract young people to the event. Davis is from Louisville and he’s done standup in many different places,” Johnson said. “Spike is very down to Earth and he does clean comedy. There are intelligent people out there who enjoy intelligent comedy.” Davis is a comedian, actor, writer and does musical comedy. He toured with Jamie Foxx in “Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza,” and has performed standup on popular shows like BET’s “Comic View” and HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam.” Lovers of fashion can see designs by the up-and-coming designer, Chris Hudson. Hudson is creator and founder of “Life’s Journey,” a clothing brand dedicated to inspiring others to lead a positive lifestyle. The brand, which originated in Lexington, includes Tshirts and accessories. Johnson said she hoped the event will raise money and awareness for the Express Yourself Youth Fest, so youth can be exposed to positive entertainment. “These days young people are attracted by so many negative things,” Johnson said. “If there is one day per year, if they don’t have to deal with that, I have made my contribution to my community.” Tickets for the Spring Fling can be purchased for $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Groups of ten or more people can purchase tickets for $10 per person when purchased together. For more information about the comedy show or to purchase tickets, contact Nicole Johnson at (859) 270-4075 or Raychel Fort at (270) 839-8788. 4 | weekend timeout | 04.05.13
Men’s soccer continues spring slate at Akron KYLE ARENSDORF firstname.lastname@example.org
The UK men’s soccer team will be in action Saturday against the Akron Zips at FirstEnergy Stadium in Akron, Ohio. This is the third week of competition for the Cats and the fourth match of their 2013 spring schedule. UK began their spring slate with home games against Southern Indiana, Georgetown College and Butler. In their first road contest of 2013, the Cats will take on the 2010 NCAA champions who have opened their spring schedule with a 1-0 start. Akron made its 2013 debut on March 8 when it defeated Cleveland State 1-0 with two of the Zips’ starters sidelined due to injury. "It wasn't a particularly pretty performance at times and we have a lot to improve on," Akron head coach Jared Embick said to GoZips.com. "But for our first spring game, it was great to get a result against a team that qualified for the NCAA Tournament and returns eight starters."

Student lands BET role timeout features
GARY HERMANN email@example.com
Trey Lindsey is a UK senior majoring in social work. But when he’s not working toward graduating in December, Trey is a professional actor. His breakthrough came in the 2011 comedy “Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son,” with Martin Trey Lindsey Lawrence. This summer, Trey will be appearing in the series “Being Mary Jane” with Gabrielle Union. Trey came by the Kernel for a Q-and-A about balancing his acting career with a demanding semester, and reflected on his experiences so far.
Q: How have things changed for you since we first interviewed you two years ago? A: After I did “Big Mommas,” I kind of had a dry spell in terms of booking other major projects. But recently, I was on spring break and I went to Atlanta and I had an audition for this new show on BET called “Being Mary Jane” with Gabrielle Union. Right when I got back up here, literally, I got the call that I got the role and had to turn back around.
Q: How has your experience been with the show so far? A: It’s been great. The first day I was on set, I got to go through the whole rehearsal and the wardrobe fitting. Working with Gabrielle, she is truly just a class-act. I’ve heard great things about her from fellow peers, but to work with her and meet her personally was really cool. The chemistry between us in our scenes is really natural, very fluid. That made me very comfortable.
Q: What can you tell us about your role? A: His name is Jah ‘Babycake’ Johnson and in his late twenties, early thirties. He’s a superstar athlete for Tennessee. He’s a pro athlete. The episode that he’s introduced to the show, he gets caught up in this illegal substance. He gets suspended for six games for testing positive for Adderall. The media and the fans are making a big deal of this, because he should know the rules. So, he goes on Mary Jane’s talk show, basically to say his defense.
Q: How is being on TV different from being in a movie? A: Actually it’s really different. This is my first television gig and seeing how quick things go. With movies you might do a scene, maybe 12 takes. On a TV show, it’s maybe five, six at the most. The pace of it is different, but I adapt6 | weekend timeout | 04.05.13
ed to it. You have to adapt, conform and perform. air?
Q: Do you know when the show is going to
A: They are going to air the pilot episode sometime this summer and it’s still up in the air on when they are going to show the complete first season. It’s a one-hour drama. From what I was told the other day by a producer, they are aiming for this summer.
Q: You’ve done comedy and drama now. Which do you prefer? A: I love drama. When I did “Big Mommas,” that comedy was a great experience, especially working with someone as talented as Martin Lawrence and getting to work with him one-on-one. But for some reason, I feel like you really have to watch your timing with your dialogue when it comes to comedy, because you don’t want to come off as if you’re trying to be funny. But with drama, it’s very realistic. A friend asked me the other day, ‘How do you act?’ I said, ‘Think about it like this: Everyone acts in their day. You just go throughout your day and you’re acting. The only difference is that there’s not a camera in front of you.’
Q: I’ve asked you a lot about your acting experience, but what is your UK experience like? A: It has been amazing. I consider this home. I am a diehard UK fan. The whole atmosphere here, the student body, the whole faculty and staff, everything about UK has been nothing but positive. It’s just a class-act school and I will always be a Wildcat. It’s all going to pay off in the long run.
Q: What is it like for you being back on campus this semester? A: It’s amazing to me how you can one day just be doing your typical thing with classes and a set schedule, then … Bam. Your life changes just like that. I guess now that I’ve been on the show and it’s a possible recurring role, it’s ‘How am I going to balance school and fly back out of town and film?’ It’s a little overwhelming, but I have a lot of supporters. They know how stressful this business can be. I’m just taking it one day at a time and just trying to focus on school and graduate. That’s my biggest priority.
Q: What are you majoring in? A: Social work, and that’s a very demanding major. I’m interning; I have to do 270 hours this semester for an internship for field practicum. That’s taking up a lot of my time. Then having a full load of classes and working (not including this acting role). It’s a lot on my

No. 7 UK baseball to face No. 2 LSU on the road timeout features
TOM HURLEY firstname.lastname@example.org
Fresh off an extra innings win in their instate rivals’ backyard Tuesday, No. 7 UK baseball is back on the road this weekend. The Cats travel to Baton Rouge, La., Friday to begin a three-game series with No. 2 Louisiana State. The Tigers are in the midst of a ninegame winning streak and have won all but two of their games so far in 2013. Brigham Young University and Mississippi State are the only teams to defeat LSU this season. UK (26-6, 6-3 SEC) got the better of LSU last season when the two schools met for a three-game series in Lexington.
After dropping the first game of the series, the Cats battled back with a pair of wins to clinch the series, 2-1. UK head coach Gary Henderson will look to his weekend starting rotation to lead the Cats to a similar outcome. Henderson will send sophomore lefthanded pitcher A.J. Reed to the mound Friday, senior left-handed pitcher Jerad Grundy on Saturday and junior left-handed pitcher Corey Littrell on Sunday. If the series is tied heading into Sunday’s finale, Henderson will send Littrell to the bump safe in the knowledge that the southpaw is 8-0 in series-deciding games in the past two seasons. LSU (27-2, 8-1 SEC) head coach Paul Mainieri will place the ball in the hands of sophomore right-handed pitcher Aaron Nola
on Friday and junior right-handed pitcher Ryan Eades on Saturday. At the time of going to press, Mainieri had yet to disclose who will pitch for the Tigers in Sunday’s series finale. LSU’s offense is spearheaded by freshman middle infielder Alex Bregman and senior utility player Mason Katz. Bregman’s 55 hits leads the Tigers and the New Mexico native is hitting .440 in his first season at the collegiate level. Bregman is also a threat on the bases, successfully stealing a base on each of his nine attempts. Katz has driven in 49 RBIs, hit 13 home runs and average .429 in the batters box. Both players have started all 29 games this season. The Cats’ attack continues to be led by sophomore second baseman J.T. Riddle and his .352 batting average. Reed, who plays at

In the midst of its longest losing streak of the season, the schedule for UK women’s tennis (12-9, 3-7 SEC) does not get any easier. The Cats host No. 18 Vanderbilt in Lexington on Friday. A continuation of the Cats’ recent fourgame losing streak could see UK slip down in the SEC standings. If the Cats were to fall to 11th or below, they would have to play an extra game in the SEC tournament when the postseason arrives. UK currently sits in a tie for 10th with Arkansas, with three matches left in the regular season. UK has been led all season by true freshman Nadia Ravita, who is ranked No. 24 in the latest ITA singles rankings. Ravita is 17-4 on the year including 7-3 in SEC play. Sophomore Stephanie Fox also owns a winning record in SEC contests with a record of 5-4.

Final Four last fling for Big East timeout features
SHANNON RYAN Chicago Tribune MCT Ask Louisville coach Rick Pitino or Syracuse's Jim Boeheim about Madison Square Garden or Big East founder Dave Gavitt. Even tight-lipped Boeheim will become sentimental and weave a story about a Big East classic. "I would have been happy if someone said, 'Coach, you're going to coach Syracuse and be in this league 10 years,'" Boeheim said. "'We'll give you 10 pretty good years, but that's it.' I'd have said, 'OK, I'll take it,' right then. It just has been unbelievable." A happy ending? A bittersweet ending? Most can agree it's a proper ending. This NCAA tournament is the last gasp for the original Big East. Its finale could be memorable. Two Big East teams — No. 1 East Region seed Louisville and No. 4 Midwest seed Syracuse — play in different brackets Saturday in the Final Four at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. They could wrap things up even more appropriately if they meet in the title game. The teams thought they already had a farewell moment when Louisville pulled away in the second half to win the Big East tournament championship in Madison Square Garden. The Cardinals will face No. 9-seed Wichita State out of the West, while the Orange
will take on the South's No. 4 seed, Michigan. The Big Ten was supposed to be the dominant conference this season with perhaps all four Final Four teams from its conference. But here comes the Big East with two teams loaded with history. It would be more sentimental if not for the fact these two programs had a hand in tearing apart the Big East. Both will defect to the ACC. Syracuse — an original member — will leave next season, while Louisville — a member since leaving Conference USA in 2003 — will depart a year later. Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Notre Dame also are leaving the conference. "(Former commissioners) knew what was coming, and was inevitable," Boeheim said. "Nobody should ask how the Big East was broken up. People should ask how did it stay together with the differences, the schools." The ACC must be drooling with its upgrade. No team currently in the ACC made the Final Four this season. Fans of college basketball at least can look forward to Pitino and Boeheim continuing to square off. At least for awhile. "(Boeheim) said, 'Are you going to retire soon?'" Pitino said. "I don't know why Jim would ask me that. And then my wife grabbed him in a restaurant and said, 'Jim, are you going to retire?' He said, 'No, Rick needs to retire. His children are all grown up. Mine are young. I have to coach 10 or 12 more years.'"

Malcolm (Ty Hickson) and Sofia (Tashiana Washington) are graffiti artists, close friends who lift spray cans from stores and proudly leave their scrawl around town. When Sofia’s latest work gets defaced by a rival crew, the duo hatch an ambitious plan to “bomb the apple” — to tag the New York Mets’ Home Run Apple, the giant icon that rises from the ground at Citi Field But first they need $500. And so, in a picaresque shamble from funky quadrants of the Bronx to upscale Manhattan neighborhoods, Malcolm and Sofia, with help from some friends (including hip-hop artist Meeko), go scamming and
looting. (“Gimme the Loot” is authentically New York, from its graffitied corner bodegas to the strictly-for-swells parks of Sutton Place.) Malcolm runs off with some pot dealers’ weed and meets a rich stoner girl, Ginnie (Zoe Lescaze), whom he kind of, maybe even falls in love with. Though his and Sofia’s relationship isn’t romantic, a bit of jealousy, or possessiveness, or hurt does set in. And then Sofia has the ignoble assignment of tracking the girl as she runs up and down the East Side — keeping an eye on Ginnie as Malcolm tries (comically) to break into her apartment. Hickson and Washington, he with his wide, mischievous grin, she with a scowl that turns to a smile and vice versa, keep “Gimme the Loot” going.

FROM LINDSEY PAGE 6 plate. Time management has to be efficient.
Q: What do you hope to do after you graduate? A: I’m up for a role that’s going to be filming in Cleveland in the next couple of weeks, but I can’t give out a lot of information about that because it’s not 100 percent certain. Another film that is supposed to be filming in Louisiana from June until November, I’m in the running for that. It’s a huge franchise film. My agent’s working on those for me. I’m just waiting to hear back about those, graduate, go to Los Angeles and pursue this 100 percent.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to add? A: Just some words of encouragement for people whether you are trying to pursue an acting career or just something that might seem far-fetched. If you want to pursue this career,
understand that it is all about someone else’s opinion of you. You can be the best actor; you can think that you nailed it, but it comes down to one person’s decision. If you don’t fit the character that they have imagined in their head then it is what it is, but you have to have tough skin. And don’t give up. Usually from what I’ve noticed about my career, when times get hard, right around the corner is going be the breakthrough. Lastly, never sign to an agent that says you have to pay them up front. Never give up on your dreams. You can do both school and pursue whatever your dream might be. Coach Cal has also been a big influence on me. When I got these roles a lot of things came up and I was wondering, ‘Do I leave school? Do I stay in school?’ I’ve never met Coach Cal, but hearing him talk about pursuing your dreams, but having that back-up plan and having education as a priority. I respect him and thank him for having that type of insight and knowledge. 04.05.13 | weekend timeout | 11
