Tips for studying during finals week CHRIS EDER firstname.lastname@example.org
Students planning on cramming for finals might want to think again. “Approach finals like you would a sports tournament,” Kathy Johnson said, study smarter seminar coordinator for The Study. “You are not going to stay up all night and practice for a sporting event so why would you pull an all night cram session for a final exam?” Often, students make the mistake of studying the night before an exam. Johnson said, according to Harvard, cramming hurts exam scores; getting eight hours of sleep the night before an exam leads to a 90 percent chance to have a 10 percent better score. “Pace yourself. You need to survive all five days. It is a marathon not a sprint,” saidAnnie Tiu, biology senior. Johnson went on to suggest when studying, break up a study session in 30-minute sections. By sectioning up the time, it will allow more focus on the notes and allow more rewarding breaks when needed. “Get to your exam early and decompress afterward, don’t let the possibility of a bad score cloud your judgment for future exams,” Johnson said. Finals week can be a stressful time but if you go into the week with a game plan you can increase your success and reduce your stress. Here are tips for studying: —“Try not to get too stressed out,” marketing junior Marcelle Venter said. “Budget your time accordingly and prioritize which exams you need to study for more.” —“Getting an adequate amount of sleep is important,” ISC senior Jenna Bream said. —“Try to study with classmates to benefit everyone and relax and don’t fry your brain,” electrical engineering junior Troy Fields said. —“I think it’s better to study a lot over short bits, don’t cram spread out your study time,” chemical engineering juinor Kevin Blakely said. —“Long term preparation utilize dead week and your campus resources,” secondary social studies education senior Parker Whitehouse said. —“Don’t panic stay calm and you should do well,” elementary education sophomore Taylor Patrick said. —“Relax! Don’t freak out about the last week it doesn’t have to be so stressful,” nutrition pre-med junior Amira Aljabi said. —“Pace yourself you need to survive all five days. It is a marathon not a sprint,” biology senior Annie Tiu said. 04.26.13 | weekend timeout | 3
Focus moves to Class of 2014
Emmanuel Mudiay: 6-foot-3,180 lbs. Point Guard
KYLE ARENSDORF email@example.com
After four straight seasons of recruiting supremacy, UK head coach John Calipari has once again sealed the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation. With only Andrew Wiggins remaining undecided from the Class of 2013, attention now turns to the names at the top of the rankings in the Class of 2014, who Calipari is hoping to entice to Lexing-
ton. Five-star center Karl Towns Jr., has already accepted Calipari’s offer of a scholarship at UK. But who will join him at Rupp Arena in the fall of 2014? Calipari has offered scholarships to five of the top-10 soon-to-be high school seniors, and three of the top-25. Let’s take a look at who the big guns are in the Class of 2014.
Jahlil Okafor: 6-foot-9, 255 lbs. Center
- High School: Whitney Young High School - Hometown: Chicago - Rank: No. 1 - Teams in the running: Arizona, Arkansas, DePaul, Duke, Illinois, UK, Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Wisconsin The consensus No. 1 prospect in the
2014 class among all of the top recruting services is Jahlil Okafor. He fits the mold of a double-double-every-game sort of player and has developed post skills and an efficient mid-range shot to come at teams from every angle. Okafor received MVP honors with Team USA at the FIBA U17 World Championship in Lithuania and will be a star where ever he ends up.
Tyus Jones: 6-foot-1, 175 lbs. Point Guard
- High School: Prime Prep Academy - Hometown: Dallas, Texas - Rank: No. 3 - Teams in the running: Arizona, Baylor, Kansas, UK, Louisville, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, Saint John's (NY), SMU, Texas Mudiay has a combination of speed and
athleticism that is unmatched at the point guard position in the 2014 class. He fits into the college landscape better than Jones in terms of his size, but his mid-range and three-point shooting will have to improve. Mudiay can get into the paint and finish through contact very well and would fit Calipari's dribble-drive system nicely.
- High School: Arsenal Technical high school - Hometown: Indianapolis - AAU Team: Spiece Indy Heat - Rank: No. 4 - Teams in the running: Butler, Duke, Florida, Louisville, UCLA, UK. Top-ranked power forward Trey Lyles, who has made four trips to Lexington since
September, seems to be in Calipari’s crosshairs. Lyles decommitted from Indiana in the fall and was in attendance for Midnight Madness and again on March 9 when UK defeated No. 11 Florida. The only knock against Lyles is that he is a little undersized to play the four. His post game and face-up game are major strengths and he has the ability to pass out of the post as well.
- High School: Curie Metropolitan High School - Hometown: Chicago - AAU Team: D-Rose - Rank: No. 5 - Teams in the running: UK, Michigan State, DePaul, Florida State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue, Tennessee, Wisconsin Alexander has high interest in UK and
Michigan St. at this point and has been heavily recruited by both. Alexander is a hard worker on both ends of the floor and will ferociously go after every rebound that is in his vicinity. His pick-and-roll game is above average, but he will struggle if he is forced to take a jumper from the elbow off of picks. He needs to vastly improve his offensive repertoire but he will flourish off of offensive rebounds and put-backs.
- High School: Robbinsdale Cooper High School - Hometown: New Hope, MN - AAU Team: Net Gain Sports - Rank: 13 -Teams in the running: Baylor, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas, UK, Louisville, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Syracuse, Texas One thing that you absolutely cannot
teach is size, and Vaughn has great NBAtype size at the shooting guard postition. He is a solid shooter especially when he can spot up, but his ballhandling could use some improving if he is to become an elite scorer at the next level. With a little work on his offthe-dribble scoring and his size, he has the ability to become a prolific scorer in both college and the NBA.
- High School: Moss Point High School - Hometown: Moss Point, Miss. - Rank: No. 23 - Teams in the running: Arkansas, Duke, Florida, UK, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, Stanford Booker announced via Twitter that he had been offered a scholarship by Calipari on Wednesday and became the second shooting gaurd in the Class of 2014 to be in UK's
sights. Booker has a high basketball IQ that is rare among players his age. He is a good shooter, but the other aspects of his offensive game are lacking. He will need to improve on his ability to get to the rim and his poise against on-ball defensive pressure. With some more work on his mid-range shooting game, look for Booker to be a Doron Lamb-type player. 04.26.13 | weekend timeout| 5

Tyus Jones takes the ball to the basket in the 4A State Championship game March 23. - High School: Apple Valley High School - Hometown: Apple Valley, Mn. - AAU Team: Howard Pulley - Rank: No. 2 - Teams in the running: Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Indiana, Iowa, UK, Michigan State, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio State, UCLA Jones is one of the most polished players in the class of 2014. His decision making and
leadership make him a top commodity for any program. His speed is dazzling and, as of late, has developed quite the offensive arsenal. Jones and Okafor have made it known that they have plans to come as a packagedeal. "We're most definitely excited to do (a package-deal)," Jones said to Twincities.com, "We're very serious about doing it and think it's going to happen." Jones was also with Team USA at the FIBE U17 World Championship and won a gold medal with Okafor.

1. The “Dude, Where’s My Car?” Award
Years ago — or so the legend goes — an embittered Kernel editor came back to the office upset, hurt, insulted. A prominent campus figure had unfairly harangued the young reporter for an offense that he did not commit. It was at that point, in the heat and sweat of tension, that the young editor vowed revenge. From those feelings of hate, the Golden Forks were born. As a testament to that young reporter we take it upon ourselves to strike back with venomous pleasure at those who have wronged the mighty “Fourth Es-

Sewall Center (almost three times the season average) to cheer their team to its biggest upset in program history. Head coach Andrew Toole is starting a powerhouse, and John Calipari should watch his back. With his newfound street cred, Toole will have his team winning NEC Championships with ease.

lines to contribute to the college through financial support, recruitment and research partnerships. On her experiences at Denver, Riordan said, “I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. I have a very in-depth understanding of how universities operate. In the last five years, we’ve gone through an amazing transformation at the college. We worked on a strategic plan to move the college forward in a very productive way.” Riordan thinks collaboration between the different colleges in a university is beneficial to students, even those who know what career they want to chase. “That’s really where higher education is going, it’s interdisciplinary,” Riordan said. Riordan says an understanding of many different occupations and industries will allow for a student to become a more productive and wellrounded worker. “We’re starting some pretty ro-
Provost candidate, Christine Riordan, plans on expanding the brand and reputation of UK. Riordan thinks her experiences with strategic planning and effecting change in a university setting matches the expectations for the provost position at UK. “When I looked at this position I thought, ‘Wow, this really fits my skill set,’” Riordan said. Riordan has helped to increase the business college’s endowment at the University of Denver, where she is dean, from $70 million in 2008 to more than $106 million in 2013, according to the Daniel’s College of Business. Riordan noted the provost position at UK is not a normal provost role, but also a leadership role at the university. “When I looked at what was on the agenda, quite frankly it’s not a normal provost role. It’s a leadership role,” Riordan said. “I think what’s not typically written is how the provost interacts with the community, having conversations with the community to make sure we’re going in the right direction.” Riordan thinks the changes she’s made at Denver will give her the experience needed to make positive changes at UK.

learning communities, global exposure is very important.” Riordan said Denver has developed a global consultancy organization in which students get hands-on experience while working with private companies internationally. “People are looking for students with global competency,” Riordan said. She said expanding globalization efforts would be the one practice or innovative system she would bring to UK. Riordan also said there has not been an extensive track record of building up globalization at UK. “Technology allows us to extend our brand and our reputation,” Riordan said. “We have to think about new ways to deliver our products, our research, our classes.” Riordan says technology will expand the global reach and the reputation of UK. An understanding of technology and how it can be used in the workforce is a key part of the academic process, Riordan said. “As we think about technology and its role on a campus, it helps us reimagine how to do things,” Riordan said. “Our students need the skill sets related to this technology, so it is our responsibility to teach our students how to use it.” Riordan also explained how technology helps not only the students, but the university as a whole. Riordan says fostering diversity and creating a community that utilizes different types of people is important for all universities. “Diversity is having a group of people with different backgrounds. Inclusiveness is setting up an environment where all of the different people feel welcomed,” Riordan said. It is important that these differences are respected, understood and utilized, Riordan said. “It’s really a topic that is important in universities.” Skills in leadership, strategic planning and developing change are reasons Riordan thinks she is a good candidate for the provost position. “I would be a good fit if, and I emphasize ‘if,’ the campus is interested in a leader that has a high value set, values openness, transparency and collaboration,” Riordan said.
Cats’ marathon loss to WKU
Fans, writers and school officials talked about the game in reverential, near-mythical lengths. Every joke about “Survive Gary” was an inside joke for those who were in Gary, Indiana last June for the 21-inning fight for survival between Kent State and UK baseball. Tuesday’s 18-inning game at Western Kentucky for the Cats was neither quite as long, nor NICK as important to the season as last year’s GRAY marathon, but it did give those who were in attenKernel dance a chance to understand what the atmoscolumnist phere was like almost 11 months ago. Consider the ride. The game began with the best catch of the night, a diving effort by Western Kentucky centerfielder Trevor Lowe in the first inning at about 6:06 p.m. local time. Two innings later, the first threat by either team produced a run for the Hilltoppers on a triple and a double. Those extra-base hits would be the last for Western Kentucky on Tuesday. Hold that thought. UK freshman right-handed pitcher Kyle Cody pitched six innings of four-hit baseball and the one run. His start would be the beginning of a series of freshman pitchers who kept the Cats in the game. Sophomore centerfield Austin Cousino put UK on the board with a solo home run in the sixth inning, a home run that tied the game at one. No one at the time realized exactly what that moment meant. Extra innings came about at around 9 p.m. local time. By the time junior closer Trevor Gott inherited two runners with one out in the 10th inning, more than half the crowd had made its way to the exits. They missed one of the gutsiest performances out of the bullpen in the recent memory of UK baseball. Gott finished the 10th inning without giving up a run, and did the same in the 11th and 12th innings, using up more than 50 pitches. Meanwhile, UK’s offense had continued to sputter, but a break via an error by Western Kentucky plus a double by sophomore first baseman A.J. Reed gave the Cats a 2-1 lead in the top of the 13th inning at 10:10 p.m. local time. Gott came out for the 13th inning with depleted velocity and bad luck forced him out of the game. With two men on, Western Kentucky outfielder Jordan Cessna could have won the game with a single or ended the game with an out against UK freshman pitcher Ryne Combs. Cessna grounded a ball right to UK junior shortstop Matt Reida at 10:25 p.m. local time. Reida’s throw missed Reed by at least five feet. And they played on. Combs allowed two runners to start the 14th, and freshman pitcher Zack Strecker inherited them, loaded the bases and mowed down the Hilltoppers with two strikeouts and a groundout. Strecker would pitch four good innings, neutralizing the WKU lineup and pushing the game into the 18th inning. Finally, as sudden as anything in a game that lasted just under six hours, at 12:02 a.m. local time, WKU’s Lowe, the person who began the game with a diving catch, ended the longest game in college baseball in 2013 with a line drive off Strecker that landed just past the left field wall and into the night. At 12:15 a.m. local time Wednesday morning, a dejected UK head coach Gary Henderson said he told his team, “Sleep on the bus. It’s going to be a short night.” A short night for those who were watching, it was not.
‘The Rock’ has emergency surgery

LOS ANGELES — Dwayne Johnson had an emergency operation for three hernial tears he suffered while wrestling John Cena during WrestleMania earlier this month. The actor-wrestler, better known as “The Rock,” underwent surgery Monday, which is why he missed the Los Angeles premiere for his latest flick, “Pain & Gain,” E! News reported. The movie costars Mark Wahlberg and opens Friday. But the 40-year-old is doing fine now, saying that the surgery was successful. “Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise,” Johnson tweeted Tuesday with a photo of himself in a hospital bed, flexing in a Superman T-shirt. His publicist Alan Nierob told the Associated Press that he is now recovering at home. Johnson, 40, wrestled with Cena on April 7 at Wrestlemania 29 to defend his championship title, but he lost the match — and his midsection suffered an even greater loss.

To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) —Today is a 9 —Creative work has a bittersweet flavor, and it still tastes good. Commit to what you believe in. But don't bite off more than you can chew right now. Take baby steps at first. Taurus (April 20-May 20) —Today is an 8 —Delays can be surprisingly fun. Check for changes before proceeding. If you're going to be late, call. Don't rest on your laurels just yet. Continue to put in extra effort, and follow your gut instincts. Gemini (May 21-June 20) —Today is a 9 —It requires getting everyone aligned to move forward to get the task done ... but it's worth it. Imagine the project complete, and work backwards to see what steps are necessary. Inspire with treats. Cancer (June 21-July 22) —Today is an 8 —Relationship frustration and disagreement requires a step back. A solution is available, if you listen. Relax and breathe deeply. Look from the other's viewpoint. Talk it over, and it goes better than expected. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) —Today is an 8 —Don't try to bend the rules. It's not worth the energy. It may require discipline to do what's needed, rather than plot alternatives, but it's ultimately the easiest route. Just do it. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) —Today is an 8 —Use an opportunity to dig deeper into a favorite subject. Your ability to concentrate gets enhanced
“In the middle of last night’s Wrestlemania match I tore my abdomen & abductor muscles off the bone. Just part of the job,” he wrote April 8, adding, “But as we know... It’s all about #JustBringIt. WWE Universe, THANK YOU for all the love & well wishes. Means everything to me. #LeaveItAllInTheRing.” On Sunday, Johnson announced that he’d be having the surgery this week and tweeted that his doctor had to “push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic.” The actor plays a workout-obsessed body builder in the upcoming film, and “Pain & Gain” director Michael Bay apologized for the Rock’s absence on the red carpet Monday. “Dwayne’s hurt tonight,” Bay said “He was pushing it too hard. (He) needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.” It doesn’t seem as if Johnson is shying away from the hulk-like roles any time soon: He has already been cast in the titular role of Brett Ratner’s “Hercules: The Thracian Wars.” MCT
marvelously. Express your true feelings gently at work. Replace outdated and broken junk. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) —Today is a 9 —When it comes to money, now's the time to watch and learn. View the situation from a different perspective, and then exceed all expectations. You may have to travel to get what you want. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) —Today is a 9 — You're in the spotlight today and tomorrow. Beat a deadline. Don't spend all your money on bills ... one little treat's nice. Get together face to face for best results. Build something of value. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) —Today is an 8 — Venture farther out. Grasp the next opportunity. Compromise is required. Keep your objective in mind, and make the changes you desire. Don't take more than you need. Listen with a practical ear. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) —Today is an 8 — The action today is behind the scenes. Move files to storage or organize structures. You can afford a special treat (although saving counts the same as earning). Maintain self-control. Others warm to your ideas. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) —Today is a 9 — Cultivate the ground. You're learning, with practice. Friends are eager to help and vie for your attention. Seek help from a female teacher. Stick with the rules and routine. There may be a test. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) —Today is a 9 — Complete an old project, and stick with what worked before. Do a good job and increase your status. Keep a discovery private, for now. Travel and romance look good for the next two days.
