Resourcefulness saves students’ money New year brings integrated branches BENNETT HALL Campus Reporter

O U ’s S t u d e n t G o v e r n m e n t Association saved about $30,000 in would-be student fees this year, SGA president Joe Sangirardi said in an annual university address at noon Wednesday. SGA was able to save this money by coordinating events with other campus organizations and departments and expanding community outreach, Sangirardi said. At the State of the SGA address, OU’s student government leaders spoke about developments and accomplishments of their branches of government in Oklahoma Memorial

Union’s Beaird Lounge. OU held its first Creativity Festival in September in response to the Campus Activity Council’s Next Big Thing campaign in spring 2011. The festival brings together and celebrates the variety of art forms that are practiced by students on campus, CAC chairwoman Vicky Vargas said. “The social media that CAC uses to connect with students has recently been streamlined so that we can reach the most students, alumni and other community members,” Vargas said. This year’s CAC College Bowl event has a record 80 teams and 430 participants who will be part of next month’s tournament, Vargas said. The Undergraduate Student C o n g re s s h a s w o r k e d t o g e t h e r with the university’s Information Technology department to make

course evaluations more accessible to students by integrating the evaluations into oZone, said Sean Bender, Undergraduate Student Congress chairman. “Our Student Government Association is in constant motion,” said James Cook, Graduate Student Senate chairman. “It fosters community and strives to make improvements in all areas of the university.” One of the most visible changes within the organization itself this past year, has been the changing of the name from University of Oklahoma Student Association to SGA, Sangirardi said.

OU sex health, resources rank in bottom half Data collected from health center representatives on campus SHELBY GUSKIN Campus Reporter

OU is ranked in the bottom half of U.S. universities and colleges for providing sexual health information and services. The Trojan Sexual Health Report Card analyzes 141 major campuses across the country with students representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to the card. OU is ranked 85 on the list, which is slightly below average, said Bert Sperling, president of Sperling’s BestPlaces, which conducted the research for the report card. The rankings measure the services and resources that are available to the students at each of the campuses, said Sperling. “Sperling’s BestPlaces researchers collected data from student health center representatives, as well as DONTERIO LIGONS/THE DAILY

Fair brings 92 companies to OU Representatives from FBI, CIA, state attend EVAN BALDACCINI Campus Reporter

Sooners looking to snag a job or internship flocked to Oklahoma Memorial Union Wednesday to meet with over 90 different prospective employers. The Spring Career Fair is the second of two career fairs hosted by Career Services. This fair was branded toward students graduating in May or those who missed the first career fair offered in the fall, said director of

Career Services Bette Scott. Representatives of the FBI, CIA, the state of Oklahoma and various oil and gas companies were among those who attended the fair, Scott said. “It’s a broad range of organizations from big to small,” she said. This spring’s career fair reeled in 100 table reservations to host around 92 different companies coming to recruit students, including a recruiter for Hastings Entertainment. “We are looking for everything,” said Stevie Pendleton, Hastings Entertainment Store Set Leader. “There is really no category of people

that don’t utilize entertainment in their lives.” For some students attending the event, it was more important to get employment ideas than to walk away with a job. “There’s nothing really that I know I want to do,” said mathematics senior Seth Lewis. “It’s kind of like an idea platform for me.” Another career fair will be held next year in the fall.

GRADUATING

Seniors: Don’t forget to graduate, apply for graduation by March 1 on oZone Students wishing to graduate in May must submit their applications by March 1. The applications can be found on oZONE by clicking the Graduation Application link in the Graduate A Sooner box under the Home tab. The deadline allows the office to stay on track with normal graduation duties, such as the commencement program and cap and gown sales, said Graduation Office director Becky Heeney. Late applications still can be submitted, but the office would like to see them all come in on time, Heeney said. This year’s spring graduation commencement is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, May 10 at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Matt Ravis Campus Editor

OU students can apply to study abroad at the Norwegian University o f S c i e n c e a n d Te c h n o l o g y i n Trondheim, Norway. Although the general study abroad deadline for many programs is Friday, the deadline for this program has been extended to March 15. No OU students have attended the Norwegian university before, said Yoana Walschap, International Outreach Coordinator. However, OU has received students from the university. Walschap has visited the university to coordinate classes that OU students can take that would count at OU for their particular major, she said. There are several classes, ranging

from engineering to social work, that are taught in English, according to the Education Abroad website.

There are various scholarships available for minorities, students with needs and students with more uncommon majors such as petroleum engineering, Shanna Vincent, study abroad adviser for Norway, said at the event. Students interested in this or any study abroad program must first attend a Study Abroad 101 information session held by the Education Abroad office at various locations throughout the week, Vincent said.

DISCUSSION

FITNESS

Event mirrors Pussy Riot’s anniversary

School swaps chairs for stability balls

Punk rock, feminism and Russia. These three topics will be discussed as part of Focus on Arts and Sciences Week. The faculty round table discussion called “Punking Out: Feminist Activism in Russia and Beyond” is at 1:30 Thursday, Feb. 21, in Hester Hall, Room 160. The event is hosted by the department of modern languages, literatures and linguistics, along with Russian and East European studies and women’s and gender studies. “The event is organized in conjunction with the anniversary of Pussy Riot’s, a feminist punk-rock band from Russia, performance of their ‘punk prayer’ against Russian President Vladimir Putin in a Moscow cathedral, for which several of the band members were arrested,” said Paul Goode, political science professor and coordinator for Russian and East European studies. Members of each department will speak at the discussion. Goode said he plans to cover the event in a broader context of protest and repression since Putin’s reelection. Tea, sweets and punk-rock music will be provided at the event, according to the event’s flier. “These kinds of events benefit from the extraordinary expertise that OU has in Russian and East European Studies across a range of departments,” Goode said.

SPEAKER

Prominent architect to speak at OU A nationally-recognized architect will speak at OU about collaboration among everyone involved in architectural projects, as well as how to deal with old and new buildings. Rob Rogers, lead architect for the design of SandRidge Energy’s New Corporate Campus and the founding partner of Rogers Marvel Architects, will hold a free public lecture today. Rogers will talk about how to handle designing old and new buildings’ interior and exterior spaces and how to collaborate between architects, contractors and clients, said Hanz Butzer, associate professor at the College of Architecture. Rogers is a practicing architect who has taught at design studios at universi-

ties including Columbia University, Parsons The New School for Design and Harvard University, according to a press release. Currently, he is working on other projects in Washington D.C. and New York, according to the press release.

Yoga balls help children focus KATHY MATHESON Associated Press

W E S T C H E S T E R , Pa . (AP) — In 11 years of teaching, ditching students’ desk chairs in favor of yoga balls is one of the best decisions Robbi Giuliano thinks she ever made. R e p l a c i n g s t at i o na r y seats with inflatable bounce r s ha s ra i s e d p ro d u ctivity in her fifth-graders at Westtown-Thornbury Elementary School, making students better able to focus on lessons while improving their balance and core strength, she said. “I have more attentive children,” Giuliano said. “I’m able to get a lot done with them because they’re sitting on yoga balls.” The giant rubber spheres, also called stability balls, come in different sizes, colors and degrees of firmness. By making the sitter work to stay balanced, the balls force muscle engagement and increased blood flow, leading to more alertness. The exercise gear is part a larger effort to modernize schools based on research linking physical activity with better learning, said John Kilbourne, a professor of movement science at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich. Traditional classroom setups are being challenged as teachers nationwide experiment with yoga balls, f o o t re s t s a n d s t a n d i n g desks, which give children outlets to fidget without disrupting class. “It’s the future of education,” Kilbourne said. Stability balls, frequently

Anonymous hacks are acts of freedom, not terrorist attacks

A

nonymous is one OPINION COLUMNIST of the most misunderstood and misrepresented “organizations” in the world. One reason for this is it isn’t actually an organization, or even a well-defined group of people. Another Hunter Ash reason is the constant hunter.r.ash-1@ou.edu stream of fear-laden news reports of the organization’s activities. Though it isn’t a legitimate organization, or even a well-defined group of people, Fox News has deemed Anonymous domestic terrorists and Canadian government officials report Anonymous is an “international cabal of criminal hackers.” The Anonymous hackers are not terrorists. Many of the Anonymous are principled and conscientious activists, who hack to protest and disrupt immoral corporate and governmental activities. The anonymous hackers are criminals who attack private and government websites, explicitly disdain and violate intellectual property laws and release people’s personal information without their consent. But their intent is not malicious. This and other recent attacks are part of RECENT ACTIVITY Anonymous’ Operation Anonymous Last Resort, a protest hackers against the structure of existing computer crime The group tapped laws, spurred by the suithe U.S. Federal cide of activist and Reddit Reserve’s emergency co-founder, Aaron Swartz. contact system to Swartz was being release 4,600 banking prosecuted for illegally executives’ personal downloading numerous information. academic articles from Massachussetts Institute of Technology’s database JSTOR. Swartz’s theft was a protest against the sale of information produced in part by public funds. However, he did not attempt to profit from it financially. Although JSTOR didn’t sue Swartz, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz decided to prosecute Swartz anyway. Swartz’s family released a statement claiming his suicide was due to prosecution by the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s office. Soon after Swartz’s death, Anonymous hacked MIT’s website and replaced the homepage with a memorial for Swartz. The U.S. Sentencing Commission’s homepage also was replaced with a Swartz tribute. These “defacements” expressed disgust for a justice system that would have sentenced Swartz to up to 50 years in prison for advocating for free access to information. Most of Anonymous’ major illegal activities are motivated similarly by ethical concerns. When the Westboro Baptist Church announced plans to picket funerals for children slain in the Newtown, Conn., shooting, Anonymous leaked the church members’ information and replaced the church spokesperson’s Twitter avatar with a picture that said “Pray for Newtown.” Even if most people probably would agree with most of Anonymous’ moral stances, they most likely would disapprove of the illegality of their tactics. Such a stance is reminiscent of the attitude of many white moderates during the civil rights movement who agreed with the idea of civil rights but not with civil disobedience. In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Martin Luther King Jr. indicts this questionable legalism by writing “...one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws...” It is naive to think democracy can exist when citizens have no power over the government. The right to vote is no safeguard against central authority; it is something the government allows you, and your choices often are between candidates who are hardly distinguishable. The only thing that can counter power is power, and in the modern world, one of the most effective ways to exert power is through the Internet. Anonymous, for all its faults and idiosyncrasies, is essentially a group of concerned citizens trying to provide a counterweight to the concentration of power. They are an integral part of our democracy.

OU thumps K-State to avoid third straight loss Hot-shooting Sooners down Wildcats, 72-57 JULIA NELSON Sports Reporter

They’re finally back. After a pair of consecutive losses, Oklahoma put together a solid team effort in its win against Kansas State on Wednesday. The slow starts and inconsistent play that plagued them against Iowa State and Kansas were nowhere to be found. “Tonight was fun, and that’s what we were trying to do,” senior forward Joanna McFarland said. “We were trying to take a deep breath and just go back to having fun because that’s what got us here.” It’s become a pattern for the Sooners (19-7, 9-5 Big 12) to have a standout player each game. One night it’s junior center Nicole Griffin, the next its junior guard Aaryn Ellenberg. There was no such player in this game. “I remember in the second half … I said ‘Ah, I recognize you. I remember that.’ We were just sharing the ball and playing with great poise and cadence,” coach Sherri Coale said. “That’s exactly what we

RAPID RECAP OU 72, KSU 57 Key stat: 53. The Sooners were on fire, shooting 53 percent from the field. Key performer: Senior Joanna McFarland had a dominant performance, recording 15 points, 10 rebounds, two blocks, two steals and an assist.

needed to see tonight. I thought our sureness with the basketball was critical.” Because they were able to share the ball, many players had a chance to succeed. McFarland recorded another double-double, finishing with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Griffin had 14 points, three rebounds and a block. Ellenberg continued on the surge she had late against Kansas and recorded a team high of 18 points, five assists and four

rebounds. “We just played with more rhythm on offense and that’s why our shots were falling,” junior guard Morgan Hook said. “We passed to Nicole when we wanted to. It was an inside-out game, and I think overall our spacing and everything like that was just where it needed to be.” That overall rhythm helped the team get back into their offensive identity. Before its losing streak, OU relied heavily on the 3-point game. In the losses to both Iowa State and Kansas, the shots behind the arc weren’t there. Tonight the Sooners shot 50 percent from the 3-point line in the first half. It looked like the team finally put all the pieces together. “I think our performance tonight really began with what we did on the defensive end, and then in the second half, I thought we started to look like the team I remembered offensively,” Coale said. “[We were] sharing the ball, changing sides of the floor and just looking more confident and more poised with each and every possession along the way.” Julia Nelson julia.nelson@ou.edu
