Matthew Winkler, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, signed copies of his book “The Bloomberg Way” at the O’Neil lecture Tuesday.
Bloomberg editor-in-chief talks technology in journalism kelsey charles Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org On the topic of the business of journalism, Matthew Winkler is a man of many opinions and as co-founder and editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, he is an expertise in the subject. Winkler shared his thoughts on “Truth in the Age of Twitter” Tuesday night as a part of the William J. O’Neil lecture series on business journalism. “What drives our media is the obsession with data and being able to show, not tell,” Winkler said to a crowded room of around 70 SMU students and professors in Umphrey Lee. “The journalism has to be informed by the data—the most important part of this is the facts,” Winkler said. Social media and the idea of demonstrating information have
become more popular than ever in recent years, but to Winkler, this newfound “spontaneous expression” comes at a cost. “The value of journalism is diminished by technology that allows us to obtain information or misinformation by a keystroke,” Winkler said. Winkler cited incorrect Wikipedia profiles and misinformed tweets as examples of the negative affects of technology in journalism. “We are in the age where people can say whatever they want to and they do,” Winkler said. He further expanded on this idea by quoting Mark Twain: “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes,” Winkler said. For Winkler, there are five “F’s” of journalism that he believes every journalist and media outlet should abide by: Be the first, final, fastest,
most factual and future word. “You want to be the first word and the fastest word, but you also want to be the final word,” Winkler said. “The more determined you are to be the first word, the more determined you will be to be the final or future word.” While breaking news is important, Winkler emphasized the idea of being correct. “Don’t be the first if you can’t be factual,” he said. “Without accurate information, decisions can’t be made. What good is a report if it isn’t true?” One of Winkler’s main points was the importance of corroborating reporting with data and facts. “If the facts are readily apparent, then you can trust the narrative that follows. You’re only as good as your data,” he pointed out, citing CNN and Fox News’ incorrect reports on the Obamacare
verdict last summer. “It’s so important to know the data, to follow the data. It’s not enough to be half informed,” Winkler said. “You do so at your peril.” Winkler further emphasized the importance of speed, accuracy, context and perspective in reporting. “[They] all have a place in 21st century journalism and are key in making a winning [media] model,” Winkler said. “You have to have something that will make people appreciate that this is news.” Winkler closed his lecture by reiterating the idea of delving beneath the surface of a report or claim and finding out what the evidence has to say. “Just because someone say it’s so, doesn’t mean it’s true,” Winkler said. “Good journalism is all about verifying and revealing what is and what isn’t.”
SMU Student Senate called into question the campus’ attitude towards diversity during their meeting Tuesday afternoon. Senator Kimberly Elmazi updated her fellow Senators on her efforts to publicize SMU’s Diversity Week. Elmazi said she had posted information about the event on several student organizations’ Facebook pages. A member of one unnamed Greek organization replied to the post on his or her chapter’s wall, asking, “is this an April Fool’s joke?” This comment offended Elmazi, who has been working to get the entire campus involved with Diversity Week. “Regardless of your affiliation, it is a positive thing that’s meant to build community,” Elmazi said.
continued with the launch of Student Senate’s 100 Letters campaign. This campaign seeks to gather 100 student-written letters of thanks and welcome for the Bush family, who will present at the library’s opening. An email with more information will be sent to students soon, but the deadline is already approaching. Letters need to be submitted before Spring Break so the selection committee can choose which ones will ultimately be presented to
“This is somewhere we can really change our university for the better.”
—Student Concerns Committee Chair Christos Patelis
Senator Ramon Trespalacios responded to the incident. “If we take this opportunity to change negative opinions to positive ones, that’s even more meaningful,” Trespalacios said. Student Senate will be hosting their first Lawn Talk on March 27 on Dallas Hall Lawn. The Lawn Talk is meant to serve as a proactive forum for discussion about campus issues, such as discrimination and sexual assault. Student Concerns Committee Chair Christos Patelis has already reached out to leaders of many student organizations so they can help develop framing questions for the event. “This is somewhere we can really change our university for the better,” Patelis said.

Finally, Senator Emily McIntosh introduced a new piece of legislation, which seeks to help students who frequently fall prey to campus parking rules. Currently, Park N’ Pony will place boots on cars that have received more than six parking tickets during the year, without any prior warning. McIntosh hopes to change this rule by having Park N’ Pony give a warning to students who are close to receiving the boot or basing the boot system off a student’s number of outstanding tickets. Student Senate will continue discussion of this bill and come to a resolution during next week’s meeting at 3:30 p.m. in the HughesTrigg Forum.
M.K. Asante tells Tate audience ‘It’s in our hands’ Katelyn gough News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org M.K. Asante Jr. spoke Tuesday night as part of the Tate Lecture series on his journey discovering how art is able “to take you from where you were to a place you had not considered.” “To want more, to need more, to do better,” Asante said. “If I make an observation, I have an obligation.” He discussed the notion he lives by first stating that, as writers, “we observe a lot.” Once something is identified as missing, Asante asserted that the remedy for the hollow piece must be created. He gave an example in the story of he and fellow artists being inspired to make a documentary. “There was a void of something we wanted to see that didn’t exist— so we created it,” Asante said. Quoting Maya Angelou as one of his mentors, he said one
of the best pieces of advice she gave him was that there must be a consistent flow of both give and take. “When you get, give. When you learn, teach,” Asante said, in the words of Angelou. He spoke on his memoir, “Buck,” written in first-person, present-tense so that the reader can “experience those [epiphanies]” as Asante did during his teenage years. Asante cited Paul Robeson’s work as a source of inspiration and direction. “He had his art as a vehicle for showing a better world,” Asante said. According to Asante, his coming-of-age occurred at the start of the memoir, during the police raid on his family’s home in Philadelphia during his brother’s arrest. The subsequent turmoil that followed him for many years following. “[The police] assaulted my
innocence,” Asante said. “[Then,] I saw my neighborhood around me crumble.” Abandoned for a period of time by his father and watching his mother be institutionalized for depression and suicide attempts, Asante said it mirrored the significant “desolation happening in the city.” He continued to outline his journey, as told in his memoir, but gave special attribution to his uncle’s notion that there are “two wolves in everyone.” One is of anger, rage and hatred, and another of love, hope and creativity, according to Asante. “They’re fighting inside of you. Which one wins? The one you feed,” Asante said, sharing the words of his uncle. He also noted one of his most epiphytic self-discoveries at the start of his passion for writing was the fact that “we think in words.” “If you limit someone’s words,
you limit their thoughts,” Asante said. “I started to read a book a day and it started to ignite all these lights in my brain.” As a writer, Asante wove his story of growth and coming of age through both his history and the history of African-Americans. He stated one of his biggest influences to his art came from America’s history of slavery. “I get great, great inspiration from the quilt makers during slave days,” Asante said. He explained that the quilts embodied the same essential traits to finding success in one’s own being: resourcefulness, beauty, practicality and liberation. As the quilt makers collected fabric pieces to “combine them all to create one,” they would “embed symbols into quilts” that held “extremely potent messages of liberation.” “Freedom can’t be an elective,” Asante said. “The voice is there— sometimes, you have to chisel

away at it.” At the close, a law student in the audience asked Asante, “What statement would you like to make in your quilt?”
Asante took his time before leaving his audience with his own mantra: “Eliminate distractions, create energy, fear nothing, attack everything.”

Red carpet fashion shines at the 2013 OsHillary Schmidt Style Editor email@example.com Millions tuned in to the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday night and not just to see who won. The Oscars is considered one of the biggest fashion shows in the world, and the red carpet prior to the ceremony is highly anticipated. It’s the talk of the night. Fashion gurus, and even those not so interested in fashion, can’t help but to comment on the celebrities’ dresses, accessories, hair styles and makeup.
In case you missed you’re turn, here’s a recap.
Jennifer Lawrence, winner of Best Actress for the “Silver Lining Playbook,” looked stunning in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Most would suspect that such a dress would look too bridal, but Lawrence pulled it off. Maybe it was because of her total ensemble with pulled back hair and simple jewelry, or maybe it was because of her contagious, light-hearted and down right funny personality.
Best dressed Among the top “best dressed” are Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. Pale shades definitely dominated the carpet this year, along with simple makeup and accessories. The most worn designer of the evening was Armani Prive. Amy Adams looked like royalty in an Oscar de la Renta gown, and
Accessories this year were very minimal, which was appropriate in most cases. With all the strapless dresses, a simple necklace made the ensemble elegant and sophisticated. Some stars went for the bare neckline, such as Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Chastain.
Amy Adams hits the runway with a light blue Oscar de la Renta gown.
Charlize Theron “wow-ed” in her white Dior Haute Couture dress. And who would of thought that someone could pull off a monotone dress with a pale skin tone and strawberry blonde hair? Jessica Chastain proved to everyone that it’s possible in her Armani Prive dress and Harry Winston jewels. Her red lips were the perfect touch to bring the outfit together and to accomplish her desire to look “old Hollywood glam.” She looked undeniably flawless.
Best hair goes to Reese Witherspoon who credited its shine and volume to her recent pregnancy. Among the most popular hairstyles was the bun. Whether it was a double knot, loose, braided or twisted, this style was spotted up and down the entire red carpet.

Helen Hunt surprised everyone in her H&M dress that is part of their new going-green line. It was certainly a bold move on a night where every star is clad in the most prestigious designers, but it certainly got H&M quite a bit of publicity. And who didn’t fall in love with Quvenzhané Wallis, otherwise known as “little Q?” At 9 years old, she is the youngest nominee for an award at the Oscars. Little Q flaunted a Giorgio Armani dress that she loved because it was “fluffy and sparkly,” but the best part of her look had to be her dog purse. Fashion on the red carpet never disappoints, and this year was no exception.

SMU Abroad gives students a chance to become ‘Londoners’ Alexa Malevitis Contributing Writer firstname.lastname@example.org SMU-in-London: Arts is looking for adventurous and intellectual students to spend the summer in London exploring the city and do as the Londoners do. In the five-week program, students have the opportunity to explore the features that make London one of the world’s greatest cities. Students will experience historic venues such as Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral. They will also live and see the vitality of London life in and through its people, streets, mews, squares and parks like Dickens, Shakespeare and Henry VIII. With weekly excursions to Salisbury, Bath and Stonehenge students will get the opportunity to experience all London has to offer. “If you have ever wanted to experience a city as if you live there, London Arts study abroad is for you,” Dr. Shelley Berg, SMU professor and program director, said. Students become Londoners as they experience street fairs, traditional food markets, theatre, dance, musical events, museums
cultural formation courses. Rohr said her courses in London were some of the best she has taken at SMU. “We really dissected the meaning of performance not only in the traditional artistic sense, but with food and culture as well,” Rohr said. From sampling the fresh berries at

and exhibitions. The course is based in the discipline of performance studies, and studying the actions and performances that occur around them. The program uses the city as its classroom, exploring the history of theatre and uncovering the meaning of performance. “Performance can be cooking in a food market, how someone rides the Tube, or an actual performance on stage. We look at how they really are similar and how
everywhere you look in London you see performance,” Berg said. SMU sophomore Kelsey Rohr applied for the program on a whim last year. As a dance major, Rohr was always interested in theatre. Rohr said her experience was “the most fun, adventurous, life changing five weeks she has ever experienced.” Two semesters after the program, Rohr still finds herself learning from her London experiences.
“Not only did I live in such a rich cultural and global city, I had the privilege of sharing my time with some truly incredible professors and peers,” Rohr said. The program is open to freshmen through seniors and is not exclusive to theatre or arts majors. Students from all academic points are encouraged to apply and explore the historic city of London. Freshmen will fulfill a “Ways of Knowing” course, and sophomores through seniors will fulfill two
Professor’s passion keeps Latin alive chandler schlegel News Director email@example.com People across the globe say that Latin is a dead language. Outside of Vatican City, there isn’t a single area in the world that still uses it to speak. It’s difficult to learn. Its grammar is complicated. And to many, it’s just not fun. “I hated Latin in high schools,” freshman Richard Scott said. It seems that Scott isn’t the only one that feels this way. Over the past 20 years, schools across the country have been cutting their Latin programs. However, here at SMU
the language is alive and well thanks to one quirky professor, Patricia Rawlins. “[Latin] isn’t dead. It’s pervasive,” Rawlins said. “It’s immortal and it makes you a better person intellectually.” Since Rawlins began teaching at SMU, her class sizes and retention rates haven’t dipped a bit. They’ve actually risen. Rawlins thinks this is because she uses a teaching style that helps immerse students in the language every day. “I mean, you have agendas and curriculums here at school,” Rawlins said. “And if you’re walking across campus, you see the
Moody Coliseum, which are all Latin words.” Latin clearly still has a presence in the vernacular of SMU, but perhaps the real trick to keeping the language alive is Rawlins’ passion. “I think it’s because I’m excited about it,” Rawlins said. “I think [Latin] is so amazing and cool and fabulous and just, every day, I see something new that goes, ‘Oh! That’s Latin.’” Rawlins’ passion for the language is even spreading to her students. Even Scott, who hated Latin in high school, is coming around. “I think Professor Rawlins is an awesome professor,” Scott said, “she makes me
Local pet adoption charity events inspire students Brie Strickland Contributing Writer firstname.lastname@example.org In North America alone 8 million pets end up in shelters. On a yearly basis 4 million of those pets end up euthanized because they don’t have a home. PetSmart Charities is taking a stand on pet homelessness. This past weekend the organization hosted their first-of-the-year National Adoption Weekend at 1,269 PetSmart locations across the country. In the month of ‘love’, more than 2,000 “matchmakers,” or animal-welfare organizations, came out to support the cause and help thousands of pets find a home. Further sharing the ‘love,’ PetSmart Charities will give all participating animalwelfare organizations $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during this event. National Adoption Weekend events are sponsored by PetSmart, Purina ProPlan and Tidy Cats. “PetSmart Charities is changing lives with innovative programs and events that address the pet overpopulation problem at the community level,” Stephanie Butler said. Butler is the senior director of programs, grants and research at PetSmart Charities, said. “When you adopt, you
save a pet’s life and enrich your own.” There are plenty of ways for college students to get involved. Local animal shelters can always use volunteer help to give pets some much needed exercise or to help clean and organize the shelter space. This past fall, fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha hosted “Pikes for Puppies.” This was an event on campus that spread animal overpopulation awareness in conjunction with the White Rock Dog and two other shelters. SMU students Hannah Moss and Lexi Leinenkugel are advocates of animal adoption and encourage getting involved in volunteering at a shelter. “Animal adoption is life changing and good for the soul,” Moss said.
“It makes you accountable for someone else besides yourself. I felt like a mommy and had so much love for The General [her cat].” Leinenkugel also sees the joys of volunteering with animals. “Since many of these animals have had unfortunate lives, it’s so wonderful to give them love and attention,” Leinenkugel said. “Volunteering at an animal shelter is a happy experience for the animals and those who volunteer—who wouldn’t want to play with animals.” The next PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend is May 3-5, 2013. The event will be held at PetSmart stores nationwide and in Canada. Local PetSmart stores are located at 5500 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206 and 12100 Inwood Rd, Dallas, TX, 75244.
like Latin.” Since Rawlins’ began teaching at SMU, a minor for the language has been added at the request of the students. She’s also had six of her students go on to teach Latin at schools around the state. So, as long as Rawlins still has a say, Latin isn’t going to die anytime soon on this campus. “De gustibus non est disputandum,” Rawlins said. “You can’t argue taste.”

Escaping comfort zones is essential matthew hare Contributing Writer email@example.com Without a doubt we are creatures of habit; we have a tendency to form routines, and ultimately we enjoy what is familiar to us. Familiarity breeds a sense of safety, and safety can be comforting. And let’s be honest, no one particularly likes being out of his or her comfort zone. By no means am I about to advocate the shedding of responsibility to shatter the boundaries of one’s comfort zone. And please keep in mind that I totally understand a majority of the students, who may or may not read this, have completely uprooted and transplanted themselves in the ever-changing city of Dallas, have pushed the boundaries of their comfort zones and are in the process of expanding their horizons. In turn, those students who haven’t completely transplanted (y’all know who you are) to some degree have the boundaries of their comfort zones pushed, and traditionally this was enough. Now, it is not. The times they are a changin’, and if you can’t keep up, you’re going to get swept up. Every nation in the world is dealing with high migration rates. Americans will be leaving this country to live, work, and reproduce in others. And (pick any foreign nationality and put it here) will be doing the very same here. The way our future fellow Americans break down and understand the world is fundamentally different from a Western perspective of understanding. We live in a highly individualized society and part of our society’s culture affords a large percentage of us a considerable
amount of autonomy that a large percentage of the world’s population doesn’t have. Think about this: some of you will be leaving this country and moving to a different country because of work, and you don’t even know it yet. You could potentially be so out of your element, due to the difference in worldviews, that it could cause some of you to completely rethink your life’s choices up to that point. To those who may be reading and haven’t already taken a leap like this, does this thought scare you? Are you uneasy with the thought of perhaps being the immigrant? So I am going to be brutally honest with y’all: white people talking to white people does not create an expanded horizon. This knife cuts both ways, so this goes for the exchange students as well. As a species, we gravitate toward what is familiar to us, what is safe, what is comforting. And if pop culture has taught me anything about college, it’s that the traditional American college experience is one of the few times, if not the only time, in your life that you are encouraged to test the boundaries of your existence in the quest for self-actualization. The genuine interaction and communication that needs to take place amongst these varying worldviews here at SMU is a key component to our gaining a global perspective that is going to be vitally important in navigating the emerging global job market and navigating this global existence of ours.

Oscars got it right, for the most part matthew costa Associate Sports Editor firstname.lastname@example.org The 85th annual Academy Awards have come and gone and for the first time in a long time, it feels like those who were “correctly” chosen actually deserved to win. There were definitely some glaring oversights and a couple of notable misses, but if I were to grade this past Sunday’s performance, I’d have to give the academy a solid B. The show was by no means perfect and that had quite a bit to do with the host’s performance. Yes, I suppose it’s not that big of a crushing blow to the allpowerful Seth McFarlane if someone actually agreed with the fake headlines presented by William Shatner. Lord knows the redditors and online communities of the world will just prop him back up. Many of the jokes of the night

were not so much distasteful, but odd and sporadic. McFarlane seemed uncomfortable for someone who isn’t too ashamed to express his opinions whenever he deems it necessary on his shows. Although I will admit to a pretty good laugh at Jennifer Lawrence’s fist pump in the middle of McFarlane’s “We Saw Your Boobs” anthem. That will bring me to my next bit of pessimism: the fact that the movie I thought was clearly the best of the year, “Zero Dark Thirty,” came away with zero awards for the night. I wasn’t very shocked by Argo winning Best Picture, but Jessica Chastain’s performance was magnificent. It’s also odd to think that a piece about something involving an important part of history didn’t have the academy drowning in a sea of their own self-indulgence. Don’t mistake what I’m saying: Lawrence, Best Actress winner, is on her way to an incredible career
that hopefully won’t be defined just by “The Hunger Games,” but for my money, I’ll take the psycho redhead going after Osama Bin Laden any day. But, without a doubt, the biggest mistake on the night was of course Ben Affleck’s lack of a nomination for Argo. When almost your entire crew gets selected, many of them winning, and the director can’t even be acknowledged, someone screwed up. And no, Affleck winning the Best Picture award is not the same. It’s just some kind of pathetic attempt at an apology. Sorry, Ang Lee, but your statue needs to be holding an asterisk somewhere. Besides those, the rest of the night was spot on. Anne Hathaway received a very well-deserved Oscar for about four minutes of the most haunting and beautiful version of “I Dreamed a Dream” that may have ever been performed.
Christoph Waltz is now two for two under Quentin Tarantino’s direction for being the most interesting man in Hollywood. Daniel Day-Lewis won his third Best Actor award for his stunning portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. It should also be noted that Day-Lewis is the first actor in history to win more than two Best Actor awards from the academy. I know there are plenty of people who would say Tom Hanks is better, but I’ll take “Lincoln,” “There Will be Blood” and “Gangs of New York” over “Saving Private Ryan,” “Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump” any day. Without a doubt in my mind, the Oscars were once again a huge success because the academy put on a show like no one else could. Hopefully this year’s films will be just as high quality as 2012.

SMU Task Force on Sexual Misconduct Policies and Procedures and readers of The Daily Campus:
I write as Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program to make public a suggestion I sent to the Task Force’s email address last January. I strongly recommend that SMU introduce a program of bystander education and intervention in its efforts to address sexual misconduct. The benefits would include making a positive change in the campus climate and shifting the primary responsibility for such misconduct off of those who experience it. SMU deals with the problem, in part, through flyers that appear on campus after an assault. (I am aware that we have educational programs as well.) The flyers describe the attacker and the time and place of the assault, and list behaviors that presumably put people at risk. They are useful in creating awareness and bringing the issue out into the open; they also provide necessary and important advice about ways of reducing one’s risk. But in other ways they are limited and flawed. Women, the usual victims of sexual assault (though as we have recently seen, not the only ones) are encouraged to behave as though they lived in a state of siege. The message the flyers inadvertently convey is that an assault would not have happened if the assaulted person had exercised some common sense. In an op-ed piece in The New York Times published just last Friday, Joe Nocera wrote about
the success of bystander intervention training and other strategies at a large naval base in Illinois. He reported that in the two years since it adopted the training and other strategies intended to change attitudes on the base, the incidence of sexual assault dropped 73 percent. He also recommended an organization called Mentors in Violence Protection (MVP), which I had named to our Task Force. It targets certain influential campus groups—specifically, high-profile sports teams and fraternities--and trains members of those groups to confront abusive talk and coercive behavior. Everyone is involved, from the rank-and-file to coaches and directors. Not only are influential groups on campus educated, but they are given the opportunity to mentor and educate others (including boys in high school and junior high). I encourage readers to look at their web site: http://www.mvpnational.org/ . I would add that women, too, can and should learn bystander intervention. They have much to gain from learning that coerced sex is unacceptable—and that they may be able to intervene constructively when they witness potential coercion or sexual violence. They can also benefit from confronting what the scholarly literature has termed “rape myth acceptance.” It is too easy for all of us to internalize the myths. One hears a lot at SMU and elsewhere about the importance of leadership. Here is an oppor-
tunity for developing it. Wouldn’t it be worth trying some of those strategies here?

“21 & Over” stars Skylar Astin, Justin Chon and Miles Teller. The film hits theaters on Friday, March 1.
Lucas, Moore pair up for another wild film in “21 & Over” Chase wade Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org The Saddle Ranch Chop House on Hollywood’s famed Sunset Boulevard is quite the wild place. However, even with its leatherbound bar stools and a morose collection of horns and antlers, the venue doesn’t hold a candle to the wild times portrayed in “21 & Over,” the new film from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore who struck comedic gold when they wrote the script to 2009’s “The Hangover.” Despite existing in the shadows of “21 & Over’s” over-the-top debauchery, the Saddle Ranch Chop House played host to the film’s West Coast press day where Lucas, Moore and a handful of the movie’s cast sat down to talk shop. Lucas and Moore met on the set of “Beverly Hills Cop” in 1999, and ever since the duo has been working together to pen such films as “Four Christmases,” “The Change Up” and “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.” However, with “21 & Over,” Lucas and Moore step from behind the computer screen and try their hand at directing. “It’s definitely a transition from writing to directing,” Moore said. “There were scenes in the movie that looked great on paper but ended up being a

directorial nightmare.” Much like “The Hangover,” “21 & Over” relies on outlandish “can this really happen?” scenes for the bulk of its laughs. One in particular involved two things even the most seasoned directors, let alone brand new ones like Moore and Scott, would have trouble with: a bonfire and a buffalo. “I’ve learned my lesson and will never write a scene with a bonfire or a buffalo again,” said Lucas. “We really underestimated how long it would take to get the scene right especially when we were working with 200 extras and shooting during the middle of the night. I don’t even think we had lights during the shot.” When it came to casting, both Lucas and Moore wanted to find “fresh faces” for the movie. The movie’s first big attachment came with the story’s main character Casey. Skylar Astin, of “Pitch Perfect” , jumped at the chance to work with the directors. “I did ‘21 & Over’ before I was in ‘Pitch Perfect,’ so this really was my first leading role,” Astin said. Austin, like his on-screen romance Sarah Wright, didn’t attend college. In fact, after a semester in school, the actor left to pursue his career full time. “21 & Over,” which was shot on the

University of Washington’s campus, which allowed the actor to relive a previous experience he left behind. “I was at LSU [Louisiana State University] for ‘Pitch Perfect’ and was at UW for ‘21 & Over,’ so I was definitely getting the whole college experience all over again” Austin said. “Me and the guys [co-stars, Miles Teller and Justin Chon] got to go out a couple of times before shooting began and see what the scene was like.” While most of the movie is spent following the film’s cast around University of Washington’s campus as they find themselves in increasingly severe predicaments, director Jon Lucas claims that there is more to the story that meets the eye. “At the end of the day, the film is really about a group of guys and how hard they are willing to fight for the friendships of their past,” Lucas said. “That’s how it really is, if you really want to make friendships work, you’ve got to be willing to fight for them.” Keeping in line with his sediment, Lucas will be flying his college roommates out for the film’s Los Angeles premiere. “21 & Over” arrives in theaters nationwide this weekend. Come back Friday for an indepth interview with the film’s female lead Sarah Wright.

Tribal-infused drum band Chant is coming to Dallas to play at Trees venue on Friday, March 15. In addition to Chant, KMFDM and Legion Within will be performing at the show. Recently I spoke with BradleyBillstodiveintohisworld of music. Bradley currently resides in Austin, but this isn’t his first time playing a gig in Dallas. His first Dallas show was at an Industrial club in Arlington, TX called Division One. Bradley arrived at the name Chant “to represent the connection between tribal drumming, which was really prevalent in my music early on, and meditation chanting. These days I think it represents having a voice through all the noise: having the courage to say what you feel and speak the truth – questioning authority and revolution is sexy.” Bradley defines his music by saying, “Chant is all of my musical and drumming influences poured into a pressure cooker and waiting to explode.” “As a drummer, I love intricate and tribal rhythms, but I also love the repetition found in trace and electronic programming. As a performer, I love the chaos of Metal & Punk. As a producer, I love sound design and making music using out of the ordinary items. Chant has now turned into this Apocalyptic Rock Drum Show — fast paced, relentless, and fun.” Bradley started playing the drums at age 14. His influences come from his travels through Asia where he was in front of tribal circles and Gamelan percussion ensembles. What should you expect when you go to a Chant concert? Bradley sums it up by suggesting, “Imagine a sick Electro-DJ mixing a tribal drum circle with a Nine Inch Nails show and you’ll get

Mustangs will play Owls Hilltop Heroes: TJ Nelson in farewell to Moody Matthew Costa Associate Sports Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Billy Embody Staff Writer email@example.com After 57 seasons and more than 500 wins, SMU men’s basketball will play its final home game in Moody Coliseum’s current configuration on Wednesday when the Mustangs play host to the Rice Owls at 7 p.m. SMU beat Rice earlier this season 61-39 with a dominating performance on the road that was the Mustangs third and most recent win in Conference USA this season. This time around, the Mustangs will have to contain Rice’s leading scorer Tamir Jackson, who is averaging over 18 points per game since the Mustangs held him to just 11 points on Feb. 9. Jackson is also the Owls leading rebounder, averaging over five rebounds per game. The Owls have had their struggles rebounding this season, averaging 25.8 per game, good for 346th in the country.
The Mustangs on the other hand average over 33 rebounds per game and have Jalen Jones and Cannen Cunningham to thank for the majority of them. Jones averages 8.2 rebounds per game and Cunningham averages 6.2 per game. The Mustangs are coming off a tough loss at home against East Carolina that saw them give up an 11-point lead at the half, only to lose 72-69 when Cunningham’s game-tying three-pointer missed the mark. Jones has been the most consistent player for the Mustangs this season and will be looked to for the hustle plays that SMU fans have become accustomed to this season from him. Jones is a physical presence for the Mustangs especially on the offensive glass, averaging 3.5 offensive rebounds per game. With Rice not being a great rebounding team, SMU will look to take advantage to convert second chance opportunities into points in
this game. SMU has had their struggles with depth this season with a short bench due to transfers sitting out, but in the last game against Rice that did not appear to be an issue. If the Mustangs starters can get off to a good start the team will be able to rotate in bodies to keep the starters fresh at the end of the game. One of the bench players is senior London Giles, who will be honored before the game in his last competition at Moody. Giles has played through a lingering leg injury this season. Giles is averaging 2.8 points per game and 1.3 rebounds per game in just over 13 minutes on average per game this season. SMU finishes out their season with two road games against University of Alabama at Birmingham and Tulsa in before playing a home game away from SMU against UTEP. The Mustangs current record leaves them as the second worst team in C-USA at 3-9.
Ladies hope to bounce back vs Tulane Scott Sanford Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Following their second loss in Conference USA play, the Lady Mustangs (20-6, 11-2 C-USA) will look to get back to their winning ways when they take on the Green Wave of Tulane (20-6, 9-4 C-USA) Thursday night in Moody Coliseum. The Mustangs will take on a Tulane team that has the same overall record as they do, while also sporting a 8-1 road record, propelling them into a tie for second place in C-USA.
The Green Wave will also look to extend their winning streak to three games which would put them in sole possession of second place in C-USA. Tulane is led by two scorers, Whitney Bibbins and Danielle Blagg, who are averaging 12.4 and 10.1 points per game, respectively. The Mustangs come into Thursday night with a 2-2 record in their last four games after winning their first nine conference games. SMU is led by a trio of players averaging over 10 points per game. Keena Mays, who has won multiple C-USA player of the week awards, leads the team with 19.8 points per
game, while Alisha Filmore and Akil Simpson are averaging 12.3 and 10.4 points per game, respectively. Filmore, who recently surpassesd 1,000 points in her SMU career, has been the senior leader of the team, providing guidance and stability to the younger players. The most consistent player on the team, Simpson, has been a force on the boards (leads the team at 8.3 rebounds per game). With the leadership of veteran players and coaching staff, the Mustangs should look to come out with high energy and aggressiveness to avoid losing a second straight game at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Pressure is a factor that everyone deals with from time to time, but it’s something athletes are judged upon. With that in mind, it’s also something that cannot be counted, measured or tallied. Pressure is simply something people are able to overcome or suffer beneath. It is simply something good players can or cannot play amongst. T.J. Nelson, former SMU midfielder, proved his ability to play with pressure almost immediately after being drafted in the supplemental draft by FC Dallas, but also showed why his growth as a man has been more than anything on a stat sheet. With only seconds remaining in Nelson’s first game with FC Dallas during a scrimmage versus the University of Memphis, the young man received a pass from a teammate and promptly kicked in the game winning goal. “In your first game, you don’t expect to score a goal, especially the game-winner,” Nelson said. “It was definitely a heartwarming experience.” Although the strike was obviously a highlight of the former Mustang defender, when asked if it was tops in his memories, he was quick to point out another event just months earlier. After several years of hard work at SMU, Nelson was able to walk across the stage and earn his degree in just three and a half years, even with the heavy demands of an athlete’s schedule. “Definitely his biggest accomplishment was graduating and doing it early,” said Tim McClements, Nelson’s former coach at SMU. “He had aspirations of playing at the next level, but was also dedicated to his studies.” Nelson’s dedication to his future wasn’t just during his school time. In fact on the day of his

graduation ceremony he quickly found himself on a plane to Seattle for the MLS’s player combine to be looked at and evaluated. Scouts from all across the world were looking at what coach McClements and the rest of the staff at SMU had seen for four seasons in Dallas. “What we saw early on was a very talented player that was local,” said Schellas Hyndman, FC Dallas head coach. “He can play both sides of the ball. He’s technically gifted.” Even with the high aspirations of both his former and current coaches, questions arose from people who had only seen Nelson’s statistics, in which he had only two goals and five assists in 71 games as a Mustang, but also helped anchor SMU’s defense to one of the best in the nation. The men’s team allowed a league-low six scores his final year with the team. “Look at him closer and you can see how many games he played,” Hyndman said of the defensive stalwart. “Just look at all the defensive positions he played. He’s not always playing goal-scoring positions.” The young star knew his role at SMU was not to simply score goals, but to play within a system that allowed Nelson to create
plays for others. “He was a captain and a winning team player,” McClements said. “He tied the defense into the attack. He’s a player that made others look better.” “TJ didn’t necessarily get the stats that most guys would have going into the MLS, but he was very valuable to our team.” Nelson has a natural leadership ability that was easy to see to those around him. Starting at his time with the US’s under-17 national team, Nelson showcased a quiet confidence in his ability that never wavered. “It was very obvious when he would step in and correct things,” McClements said. “He was like another coach on the field. That’s why he’s a captain.” His leadership will need to be on full display for the foreseeable future of Nelson’s career as he is still in the midst of a battle for a final place on FC Dallas’ final roster. Even with that immense pressure hanging over him, Nelson has not forgotten how glorious it felt to have his name called on January 22. “When I heard my name called, it was like a big weight lifted off my shoulders,” he said. “To hear it was Dallas was even better.”
