For the past two weeks, the Northern Iowa Student Government deliberated over the 2013-14 NISG budget. Student organizations and NISG operations rely on the budget to keep things running.
“Funds being allocated this year are down from last year, primarily because of less funds being available, which stems from the dip in enrollment as well as a general conservative mindset on how student dollars should be spend, budgeted or allocated,” said Dakotah Reed, director of administration
and finance. Student organizations request funding and submit it to the Organization and Finance Committee of NISG, where they recommend the budget and senate ratifies it. As of April 4, the amount of money student < See BUDGET, page 3

including why some women may feel deterred from running for office. “Research shows that female candidates in all levels of office are just as likely to be successful as men,” said Allison Martens, associate professor of political science at UNI. “The key is that women do not run as often as men and that is the big challenge, obviously, for achieving some sort of gender parity.” Martens said women are unnecessarily negative about their prospects for elected office, and that women generally do not see themselves as good candidates. Other obligations may deter women from running, including a delay in running for office due to “child rearing obligations,” Martens said. 50-50 in 2020 founder and former Iowa State Legislator Jean Lloyd-Jones participated in the panel, along with 50-50 in 2020 board member and former Lt. Governor of Iowa Joy Corning. 50-50 in 2020 is an organization dedicated to gender equity in Iowa’s government. Together, both Lloyd-
Jones and Corning spoke about the importance of gender balance in Iowa’s government, especially since they believe women’s perspectives are different. “There’s lots of legislation that would have never seen the light of day, let alone been passed into law, if it hadn’t been for strong women leaders in the legislature. But we don’t have enough of them yet,” Lloyd-Jones said. Corning listed the different laws that passed thanks to women in Iowa’s Congress, including lowering the age for statutory rape, safe haven laws and ending corporal punishment in public and private schools. She also told a story regarding a senator who once said in a newspaper that if he could get 50,000 signatures, he would repeal the seat belt law. The next day, Corning told the senator, “I would like to do you one better. I would like to get 50,001 signatures to keep the seat belt law.” A topic of discussion was also the gender equity mandate for city boards and commissions passed in 2009.

However, from his research, Larimer said gender equity in boards and commissions is going to be a slow moving process. Things like < See GENDER, page 3

economic boards are typically male-dominated while library boards are female-dominated. “But I think that legislation that says you have to have gender balance may not be the best thing. It’s certainly a step in the right direction … but on the other hand, if you force a woman to serve on the economic development board and she has a bad experience, that may deter her from ever running for local office. Same thing for a man,” Larimer said. Martens also spoke about research that showed female legislators are more likely to engage in more constituent service, and are perceived as more compassionate and less corrupt. “I think that’s really great. And even female legislators think that of themselves,” Martens said. With 50-50 in 2020, Lloyd-Jones hopes to “erase the blot” on Iowa’s political history regarding never electing a female as the Iowa State Governor or to the Iowa Congress. “We believe that if women hold just one-third of the seats in the Iowa legislature, the process will be better, the discussion will be more civil and the resulting legislation will bring a better Iowa for all,” Lloyd-Jones said. “We need your help. A century is long enough to wait.”

organizations requested for the upcoming school year is $219,490.55. The amount allocated to those student organizations and their requested items is $41,093.44, and the amount deferred is $123,873.45. A variety of things are deferred from the budget, including speakers, crafts and some advertisements. “The Organization and Finance Committee uses deferments as a means to push a decision to fund back for one reasons or another,” Reed said. “It could be that it is a large amount and we want to see what our financial standings are at the time, or it could be that that some

Money for the Student Services Fee comes from fees that University of Northern Iowa students pay each year. Alongside allocations for student organizations, the NISG Operations Budget also comes out of the Student Services Fee. This budget includes items that are earmarked and are seen as permanent fixtures. The funding allows NISG to perform heir day-to-day jobs as well as run events. It also includes free tuition
ing Ternus to UNI’s campus. “Institutional and state recognition of the importance of equality for (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) individuals is incredibly affirming,” Woollums said. “Former Chief Justice Ternus and the other justices who ruled unanimously on the Varnum case put the Iowa Constitution’s concepts of equality and the rule of law before their personal gain.” More than 200 UNI students, faculty and community members attended the event. “We believe that Varnum v. Brien is a landmark deci-
sion that has a great deal of historical, legal and social significance for the state of Iowa,” Woollums said. “Our goal is to have every UNI student, faculty member and community member recognize the importance of the decision and Iowa’s judicial system. “There’s no better way to learn than to hear the story from someone who worked so closely with the case, and to be able to host former Chief Justice Ternus was a true honor and privilege,” Woollums said.
plus a stipend for the present, vice president, director of administration and finance and director of governmental relations. After NISG Operations Budget and allocations for student organizations, the contingency fund for next year is at $28,068.56. Student organizations whose items were deferred may request funding from the contingency fund through Organization and Finance, who then recommend the requested funding to senate who votes on it. Over 50 student organizations requested funding for the upcoming school year. Items requested by student organizations range from flyers to inform students of events to condoms
to pass out to students. Funds for condoms were not allocated to some student organizations at this time as they were seen as a “giveaway” item, which is against budget rules. The Black Student Union made the largest request at more than $41,000, and Dance Marathon was allocated the most at a little more than $6,000.

Today’s workforce must prepare to modernize GARRETT TROTTER trotterg@ uni.edu
Talk of economic issues surrounds this period in history for the United States. President Obama’s first election was steeped in what some call the Great Recession, and those economic woes have impacted every part of our country since the market collapsed after the financial crisis of 2007. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports unemployment rates steadily dropping from the 10 percent peak in 2009 to 7.6 percent this past March. Outsourcing is one of the biggest hot-button topics when economic politics is discussed. When one thinks of outsourcing, doesn’t one envision companies in the United States taking a stereotypical manufacturing job and shipping it off to China? That’s because when we talk outsourcing, we’re really talking about outsourcing manufacturing jobs. Indeed, that’s important to consider. From the early textile mill and Henry Ford’s famous assembly lines to the World War II war economy, manufacturing has been the backbone of American economic power. Despite being deeply entrenched, this industry sector has suffered. The percentage of American citizens working in the manufacturing industry compared to total employment has shrunk from 34 percent to 11 percent from 1939 to 2013. Many blame outsourcing for this decline.
Legalize the cure BETH MONNIER
No doubt some degree of outsourcing is a contributing factor, yet the importance some give it pushes it almost into scapegoat territory. According to a New York University study, outsourcing itself it not new. With modern globalization, outsourcing might actually benefit more people overall than it harms. It provides previously nonexistent jobs to developing countries and lowers the price of goods domestically. Yet if you think of technology, the mind doesn’t generally conjure lost jobs. It brings up images of smartphones, GPS and Smart Cars. One of the biggest leaps in technology in the past decades has actually been in manufacturing technology. An easy way to see this is to watch “How It’s Made.” Automation has taken over many
jobs humans used to do. This seems somewhat like a devil in the details. Remember that Henry Ford assembly line? Now envision all those workers replaced by automated robotics. Robots are superior to humans for all purposes of most manufacturing. They’re faster, cheaper, don’t need benefits, are easily replaceable and can work 24/7 as long as the electricity is on. These factors give manufacturers in the 21st century huge quality control standardization while being able to drive the price down. After all, most of the time at many modern manufacturers, humans are only needed to maintenance, repair and program the machines. On top of that, fewer < See MODERNIZE, page 5
Imagine you have a dreaded mythical disease called Lipura. When you were diagnosed with this fatal disease, your loved ones and friends were heartbroken, but hopeful: Lipura has a cure. This cure is plentiful and well tested, but slightly expensive. You have tracked down a supplier who will gladly sell you the cure. This trade is mutually beneficial: by selling you the cure, the supplier will be able to send his kids to college and you will live a healthy life for several more years. Unfortunately, the law prohibits the supplier from selling you the cure. As a result, he cannot help his kids and your loved ones will lose you. Sound ridiculous? Unfortunately, heartbreaking situations like this happen 4,500 times each year to families with a family member who dies while waiting for a kidney donor (lkdn.org). These deaths are preventable. Legalizing the sale of kidneys will improve the lives of the 80,000 individuals waiting for a kidney donation as well as the lives of those who would be compensated for supplying a life-saving organ. Opponents treat this topic as unethical, asserting that legalizing the sale of kidneys gives those needing a transplant the opportunity to prey upon the poor. In reality, healthy persons who are poor will be helped, and perhaps have the most to gain, from the legalization of kidney sales. This option might be more attractive than joining the military or working two jobs for individuals who need to pay off loans, mortgages, or medical bills and individuals who want to provide their children with better nutrition and schooling. For many, this would be an opportunity to improve their economic circumstances. Another concern about the legalization of kidney sales is that the incompetent, such as youths or persons with mental disabilities, will be taken advantage of for their organs. Obviously, the possibility of predatory behavior is very < See KIDNEYS, page 5

jobs each year can only be done by humans. I remember a 2006 episode of “Modern Marvels” about bricks, and how the factory manager remarked that their brick factory was unique because a human hand will actually touch their finished product before the bricklayer. Even the very traditional John Deere is building partially automated production lines for the new addition to their Des Moines works. Those old-style manufacturing jobs aren’t really coming back. With all this change in industry, the real question of American jobs is whether or not we are being an adaptable workforce. The future demands that we be a flexible and digitally integrated. Future jobs will come from those who build, improve, and repair those manufacturing robots, as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) reports. While the demand for traditional manufacturing workers drops significantly, it is being replaced with demand for robotic operators. The nature of robotics means this demand won’t nearly be as high as traditional workers; however, it does offer a higher pay grade and necessitate higher skill level.
continued from page 4
real and should be a concern. But, as with other transactions, the sale of kidneys could be regulated by laws and reinforced by contracts which would inform donors of the risks of donating while preventing predatory transactions. In fact, legalizing the sale of kidneys could discourage predatory behavior toward the incompetent by increasing the pool of legal donors. Increasing the number of legal kidney donations will also curtail any unsanitary black market kidney transplants, thereby improving the safety of individuals who have a kidney removed and the safety of the kidney recipients. Currently, U.S. law allows paired kidney exchanges. In a simple paired kidney exchange, donor A can donate to donor B’s loved one and donor B can donate to donor A’s loved one. As a result, all four persons benefit. Paired kidney exchanges have facilitated hundreds of transplants “where previous-
Another boon is that few of robotic manufacturers have robots that manufacture the other robots, allowing for a crossover from traditional to complete automation as well. The outsourcing issue isn’t nearly as important as the technology issue. Technology takes jobs and makes them obsolete, which removes them from the giant global economic equation. The United States must birth a new generation of high-tech workers who can control and use the future of all major manufacturing, which is robotics. While minimum wages and outsourcing are debated, we need to get back to what matters in the first place: having a job. With the implementation of Affordable Care Act reforms, achieving a full-time job will give workers proper health benefits, and those can in many ways double the effective income one takes home. 2 Adapting our workforce to meet modern demand will enable it to go back to work. That’s really what it’s all about. Our workforce must adapt to the future of robotic manufacture, digital production, 3D printing, and things not even yet envisioned. Otherwise, we’ll be left behind.

ly no transplant would have been possible” (columbiasurgery.org). Paired exchanges have decreased the number of deaths and would still be a viable alternative if kidney sales are legalized. Legalizing kidney sales will further decrease the number of persons who die without finding a matching donor. Compensating individuals who are healthy, willing and able to provide a kidney will incentivize potential sellers to seek out individuals who need transplants and increase the pool of potential kidney matches. By legalizing the sale of kidneys, healthy individuals will have another way to improve their economic circumstances and fewer families will lose their loved ones who are on the kidney donor waiting list. With these improvements to the lives of the sellers, the families of the kidney recipients and the recipients, isn’t it ethical to allow the sale of kidneys? Beth Monnier is a junior in

Gibson shares poetry at UNI’s Pride Week
KIRSTEN TJOSSEM Staff Writer
Finding a dry eye in Lang Auditorium on the night of April 3 would have been difficult, as poet Andrea Gibson recited piece after piece, leaving audience members with all sorts of different feelings and emotions. “I write happy poems on sad days in hopes that I won’t be sad anymore,” she said between poems. Gibson made a stop at the University of Northern Iowa campus during her current tour as a part of Pride Week, a weeklong series of events hosted every year by UNI Proud. “Andrea Gibson was the perfect speaker to bring for Pride Week,” said Steven Sanchez, senior communication studies major. “Her performance was incredibly moving in so many ways. I cried throughout the entire thing! At the end of her set, everybody was crying and hugging. It was a really beautiful, unifying experience.” Gibson’s work ranges from topics of war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love and spirituality. “I’m really easily inspired by people being nice to each other and people listening to each other. I’m inspired by art. I know that it seems

predictable, but I’m really inspired by poetry. I’m constantly reading and listening to poetry and music and just anything where someone is creating, where I just feel like they’re throwing themselves and their whole hearts into something,” said Gibson. “I’m inspired by crying. I do it a lot. I’m inspired by falling in love. I fall in love all the time with so many people. I’m hardly ever dating anybody, but I’m always falling in love.” Gibson studied creative writing in college, but because of her self-doubt and stage fright, she ended up becoming a teacher. She remembers when she made her first appearance onstage. “It was when I got broken up with, and when you get
broken up with you’re just like, ‘Whatever. Anything else can fall apart.’ I got up on the mic, and I thought, ‘What’s the worst that can happen? I’ll shake a little. I’m already brokenhearted.’ And I sort of fell in love with it, even though I still get really scared when I perform,” Gibson said. She continued to teach during her first few years of writing, but recalls the moment when she came to the realization that she wanted to make writing her full-time career. “One day I was just out on the playground and I was walking around talking to myself, just reading poems to myself. The principal came < See GIBSON, page 9
This last Thursday, the film world lost the most popular and influential critic of our time, perhaps ever. Roger Ebert passed away at the age of 70 after a long battle with cancer. He had worked as the film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, establishing himself as one of America’s leading film critics, winning the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 1975 (becoming the first film critic to do so). But it was the longrunning TV show “Siskel and Ebert and The Movies” that made him and fellow Chicago film critic Gene Siskel household names. In 2006, Ebert underwent surgery to remove cancerous cells located in his jaw, but complications from the surgery caused him to lose his
voice, therefore unable to continue with his show. Returning to work at the Sun-Times in 2007, he began writing reviews of new movies on a regular basis, continued his biweekly “Great Movie” essays, started up both a blog and a Twitter account (both of which had a very large following) and regularly attended film festivals (including his own, Ebertfest). He was able to continue all of this until his unexpected death last Thursday, April 4. Despite not having a voice, Ebert’s output was the most prolific it had ever been. Recently, Forbes Magazine called him “the most powerful pundit in America.” Pretty impressive for a man who couldn’t speak. Ebert was a very influential figure in my life.

UNI student training black lab, Tags, to be service dog KIRSTEN TJOSSEM Staff Writer
Big dog on campus: That’s Tags, the nine-week-old black lab pup currently being trained to be a therapy dog by University of Northern Iowa student Darin Adams, senior criminology major, and his wife, Laura Adams. The Adamses are training Tags through Retrieving Freedom, a nonprofit organization formed by Scott Dewey and Charles Dwyer in October of 2011 to provide service dogs for veterans and children with autism. Laura Adams became interested in Retrieving Freedom after working with the organization in a class at Wartburg College, where the dogs came into the class twice a week
and part of the curriculum was to train them. “Every 80 minutes there’s a veteran committing suicide in the U.S. Something’s wrong with that,” said Dewey, who runs the Waverly location of Retrieving Freedom. “You combine that statistic with the fact that there’s one out of 88 children being born with autism. The number of service dogs that have been placed into these two areas is barely enough to even break the ice.” These facts, along with his brother’s return from Iraq and Afghanistan with several friends looking for service dogs, gave Dewey and his partner the motivation to take action. “When I saw that there was somewhere in the vicin-
ity of 60,000 veterans that had been disabled in Iraq and Afghanistan and close to 400,000 of them had posttraumatic stress, and when we started Retrieving Freedom there had been less than 100 service dogs placed with veterans, the demand was just huge,” said Dewey. The dogs at Retrieving Freedom go through several training phases. At two weeks old they’re placed into a community member’s home where the dog learns training basics, including sit and lie down. Socialization is a big part of this initial training, which is why Tags has been making so many appearances on campus. “I’m really appreciative of the University of Northern Iowa and how accommodating they have been to bring-
ing Tags onto campus. I know the students are really benefiting from his presence, and I know that Tags is benefiting from his presence,” said Darin Adams. He and Laura Adams have a 40-page manual and a list of 10 commands to complete before Tags returns to Retrieving Freedom in nine months. While there, he’ll receive his general advance training, as well as an even more advanced training, focused specifically toward his future owner. Besides the basic ninemonth training, there are a number of ways students can volunteer with Retrieving Freedom, from dog walking to major events. “The big thing is to just stay informed and get
involved,” said Darin Adams. Dewey encourages interested volunteers to participate in a July 6 fundraising event, whether by helping with preparations or working at the event itself.

DAVID POPE/Style Columnist
‘n’ STYLE & BEAUTY Macklmore’s now-famous refrain has never been truer now that it is spring, the season of letting go of the old and bringing in the new. While updating your fair-weather wear, here are six reasons to hit up the thrift shop first: 1. Save some major moolah: The obvious reason, and still the best reason: Clothing from second-hand stores is significantly cheaper than the alternatives. While even discount chains often charge $10-20 just for basic t-shirts, most thrift stores will have all kinds of pants, coats, dresses and the like for $5 and under. Our very own St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store on Main Street in Cedar Falls has “Quarter Fridays,” where every item of clothing costs only 25 cents. What could be better than reinventing your wardrobe with a handful of laundry money? 2. One man’s trash... : Thrift stores can yield surprisingly impressive finds. While they have the reputation for carrying old, ugly clothing (and indeed you’ll probably have to sort through some of that) the old adage is true that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. That wine-colored cardigan, frayed pair of acid-wash jeans or the leather belt that no longer fit may have been their last owner’s good riddance, but can be your goodluck find. And you can bet that few to none have that same piece in their closet at home. 3. It’s pretty easy being green: Thrifting is recycling, pure and simple. The more clothing you buy second-hand, the less new material you consume. You’re also saving those previously unwanted items from the landfill. While I’m not of the opinion that our consumer choices are the best way to help the environment, it’s still a boost to know that in a
small way you are contributing to a more sustainable existence. 4. Chic for charity: While not always the case, many second-hand stores are nonprofit or have sizable charity operations. Goodwill, for instance, is a nonprofit which uses its income to provide jobs, job training and income for employees who may normally have a difficult time finding a job – individuals with disabilities, the elderly or those with a lack of job experience or opportunities. In my hometown of Clear Lake, there is a thrift store whose profits go toward supporting a local assisted-living organization for individuals with disabilities. 5. It’s a conversation-starter!: Sure, your $300 designer shirt says something about the size of your wallet, but if you want to get other people talking, there’s nothing like a good thrift shop find. The oversized t-shirt with a kitten on it, ’80s neon earrings and old bowler hat will simply beg to be asked about. And hey, you may have just started a friendship over a pair of $3 vintage boots. 6. It’s not cheap, it’s vintage: Beauty editor Jean Godfrey-June writes in her memoir “Free Gift with Purchase: My Improbable Career in Magazines and Makeup” about a time when she went to an industry party in only the slip to one of her old skirts and a basic t-shirt. When everyone told her she looked fabulous and asked her which designer she was wearing, she answered, “It’s vintage.” Even top-fashion industry insiders looked at her basic slip and felt that it was completely at home amongst the Guccis and Chanels because of what Godfrey June calls “the vintage excuse.” Use the vintage excuse when wearing that $2 gown to a fancy event.

Panthers’ Knodle sets javelin record MAT MEYER
Over the weekend, the University of Northern Iowa track and field team traveled to Cape Girardeau, Mo., to participate in the Joey Haines Invitational. UNI sophomore Paige Knodle of the women’s team set a new UNI all-time record in the javelin throw to help propel the Panthers to a successful meet. Knodle was able to win the javelin throw and set the new UNI school record with a throw of 149 feet, 10 inches. The throw was more than 20 feet farther than Saint Louis University’s second-place finish of 129-9. Knodle was able to put a great meet together not in just throwing, but in the long jump as well. She set a personal record with a jump of 18 feet, 11 ¼ inches in the event for a third place finish. On the men’s side, junior Ben Lindaman was able to capture his first victory in the javelin throw with a throw of 187-4. UNI senior Jordan Williams remained undefeated in the discus throw and placed in the hammer throw. Williams’ throw of 189-7 in the discus was enough to get him first place and continue his winning streak. In the hammer throw, his heave of 191-8 was enough to give him the fourth-place position.
JUSTIN ALLEN/Northern Iowan
The University of Northern Iowa has three athletes ranked in the top 20 of the NCAA West Region just two meets into the outdoor season. Daniel Gooris ranks 20th in the pole vault, Paige Knodle ranks 10th in the heptathalon and Jordan Williams is third in the discus throw.
Senior Daniel Gooris was able to get his second victory in the men’s pole vault this season with a leap of 17 feet in the competition. UNI’s woman pole vault competitor Jenna Wexter was
UNI finishes in season-best 4th place ALEX MILLER
The University of Northern Iowa women’s golf team finished in a tie for fourth place and put three golfers in the top 10 individually at the Bradley Invitational this past weekend. The team tied with fellow Missouri Valley Conference opponent Indiana State. After a rough first-round score of 331, the Panthers ended the tournament with a score of 319 in the second round and 317 in the third and final round on Sunday. The fourth-place finish is the highest UNI has finished this season. UNI was led by Kaylee Benson, who carded two rounds under 80 with a 77 first round and a 75 third
round. Overall, Benson finished in fourth place individually. Trailing Benson on the leaderboard for the Panthers were Sarah Boss and Alex Zenor, who finished in seventh and 10th places, respectively. Taylor VanDyke rounded out the event with an 85 in the final round to finish in a tie for 31st place individually. In her first tournament of the season, Sara Pettitt shot a season-best 92 in the second round and finished in 41st place individually. With only two meets left in the season, the Panthers head to Omaha, Neb., on April 15 to compete in the Creighton Invitational. Following that, the Panthers will partake in the MVC Championships in Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., on April 22.
able to place in the event with a leap of 12-11 ½. Her jump actually tied Southeast Missouri’s Jill Schnurbusch, but Schnurbusch’s higher seed in the event gave her the victory.
The 800-meter race proved to be another strong event for the Panthers in the invitational as both men and women finished near the front of the pack. For the women, Amber Clock was able to come away
with a close second-place finish in the event with a personal-best time of two minutes, 14.15 seconds. Her teammate, Emily McCarthy, finished just behind her with a time of 2:57 < See TRACK, page 9
UNI goes 1-2 in Evansville NICK GARY
The Missouri Valley Conference road woes continue for the University of Northern Iowa softball team. The Panthers haven’t played a home game since Feb. 10 and have gone just 7-8 over the past month. UNI traveled to Evansville, Ind., over the weekend for a three-game series with the Purple Aces. On Saturday, the two squads split the pair of games. The Fisher sisters that were the story for the Panthers in game one. Jamie Fisher started the game for the Panthers and earned her 11th win of the season. Fisher dominated on the mound, as she pitched all seven innings while giving up three runs and recorded 11 strikeouts. Nicole Fisher carried the
Panthers offensively, going 3-4 from the plate and falling just a triple shy of the cycle. In the third inning, with UNI down by two runs, Nicole Fisher hit her sixth home run of the year with a two-run bomb over the centerfield wall to tie up the game. UNI would go on to score two more runs in the game, which would prove to be enough as they held off the Aces in the last inning, 4-3. In the nightcap of the doubleheader, Jamie Fisher and Abbie VanFleet overwhelmed the Evansville hitters. UNI got a three-run cushion when they scored one run in the fourth and two more runs in the fifth inning. Jamie Fisher and VanFleet held the Aces scoreless until the sixth inning when Evansville exploded for seven runs, including a grand slam. The Panthers fought back
in the seventh inning but fell just short, 7-5. Gina Brown was the highlight for the Panthers offensively in the second game. Brown went 2-3 with a home run and two RBIs. In the third game of the series, UNI fell just short in a 4-3 loss in extra innings. Jamie Fisher continued her dominant performance over the weekend as she pitched eight and two-thirds innings, recorded six strikeouts and only two earned runs. In the third inning, Brown hit her second two-run home run of the weekend, followed by Kristin Lock scoring a run that gave UNI an early 3-0 lead. Fisher kept the Aces scoreless until the fourth inning when Evansville put up a run and scored two more runs < See SOFTBALL, page 9

reason I became interested in movies in the first place was because of his show. I remember watching him every week since 5th grade, and I would just think to myself, “Man, he has the greatest job in the world!” Reading Ebert’s reviews made me think of movies in a different fashion. From him, I learned that film is an art form that is meant to be taken seriously, and in that realization I discovered how much of an impact they can leave on an individual’s life. If it wasn’t for his influence, I likely wouldn’t have this job at the Northern Iowan. The eloquent praise of the movies he loved was nearly poetic in quality, and the sharp wit and sarcastic tone he used to describe the movies he hated made those reviews incredibly fun to read. You can read all of Ebert’s reviews at rogerebert.com, and you can check out lots of video clips of the show at siskelandebert.org. Do yourself a favor and check out these websites. There, you’ll see America’s most prominent film critic doing what he does best.

in the fifth inning to tie the game. Both teams went scoreless until the ninth inning when Evansville scored a run and went home with a 4-3 victory. It was the second game in as many days the Panthers gave up a three-run lead to lose the game.
Brown and Micalla Rettinger combined to have four of the Panthers’ six hits, including Brown’s home run that would prove to be the last of the Panthers’ runs on the day. UNI (14-21, 4-6 MVC) will play again Wednesday, April 10 against the University of Wisconsin Badgers in Madison, Wis.

out and told me I wasn’t paying attention to the kids. And I realized, ‘Yeah. I’m not paying attention to the kids.’ That’s when I realized that I should take the risk of going on tour,” said Gibson. Mandey Lund, senior art studio major, first came across Gibson a few years ago. She would lay on the floor with a pen and paper, listen to Gibson’s work on YouTube and sob as she wrote her own spoken word and then fall asleep. “It is amazing how being in front of someone expressing so much and giving so
much to the audience can affect you,” Lund said. “I would sit back and watch everyone around me be overwhelmed with emotion, and I would wonder if they had heard of her before or what they had experienced that was like this.” Being in performance art, on a different scale, Lund finds herself living this all the time. “It was bringing in something so big and wonderful to our place here and showing us how we relate to the bigger scheme of things, even showing how everyone relates to everyone. It’s a nice reminder for times of need,” Lund said.
and gave the Panthers two people in the top three positions of the event. On the men’s side of the event, Ryan Krogmann finished with a time of 1:54.61 to give him first place in a close race just ahead of Southeast Missouri’s Kameron Long. The men were able to wrap up the racing portion of the meet with a close second-place finish for Sebastian Barth, Jordan Guske, Ryan Newtoff and Derek Kramer in the 4x100 meter relay with a time of 41.95 seconds. Jesse Davenport, Sheldon Mcgee, Newtoff and Guske were also able to take second in the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 3:16.37. The team will be heading to the Jim Duncan Invitational in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 12 and 13. Des Moines is also the location of the Drake Relays, which will begin on April 24.
