OU ‘greenest’ campus in Big 12 SGA president Ranked second in nation for use of green power MATT RAVIS

campus reporter

OU used more green power than any other school in the Big 12 conference this year, covering about 85 percent of the school’s annual electricity costs through green power. Green power is electricity produced from “environmentally preferable

renewable resources,” including wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and low-impact hydropower, according to the press release. OU used around 154 million kilowatt-hours of green power, which is 85 percent of the school’s annual electricity usage, according to the press release. That is the equivalent of avoiding carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of more than 16,000 American homes annually. The Environmental Protection

Agency releases rankings that track the green power usage of each conference, according to the agency’s website. OU used the second most kilowatt-hours of green energy behind the University of Pennsylvania, which used a little over 200,000, according to the agency’s website. OU’s campus-wide effort to use more green energy and help the environment has made OU very proud, university spokesman Michael Nash said.

Students denied office space

Sociologist presents her research on immigrants

Students gathered Monday to see how their political science careers could pan out during an event sponsored by the Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage. The event was held to show students young, successful political professionals that remember what it’s like to be in college, senior vice provost Kyle Harper said. The speakers at the event were Jeff Peters, field representative for a current member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives; Ashley Kehl, director of communications for Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb; Chad Maisel, who works in the office of cabinet affairs for the White House and Kiran Bhatragju, legislative aide for the U.S. House of Representatives. Each of the speakers had some sort of campaign background. “My neighbor down the street was running for state senate, and I needed an internship.” Kehl said. “I helped out on his campaign and realized I think I could like doing this.” The speakers gave a realistic view of the work done in the political world.

SDS failed to meet application deadline BENNETT HALL campus reporter

OU’s Student Government Association has denied Students for a Democratic Society office space for next year because the organization’s application was late. SGA’s executive branch passed legislation earlier this month allocating office space to student organizations for the 2013-2014 school year, and Students for a Democratic Society was the only organization denied space. The society traditionally has been approved by SGA to hold office space in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Conoco Student Leadership Wing, but it has been denied space for the upcoming fall and spring semesters because its members submitted a late application, former SGA President Joe Sangirardi said. The decision to deny renewal of the society’s office space was made before allegations arose in recent weeks regarding the organization’s illicit use of the office space involving a homeless person sleeping and drinking

alcohol on the property, according to The Daily’s archives. Even if the organization had not been found to be misusing the space, the society was not sufficiently active in the past year, and this is always an important factor in deciding which organizations to allot space to, Sangirardi said. All the other 19 applications for Conoco Wing office space were approved for the upcoming year, he said. “The Interfraternity Council, Campus Activities Council, Black Student Association, Big Event and

Panhellenic Council and others prove every year that they really need the space, so we give it to them,” he said. Campus organizations occupy these spaces for free and use them to hold meetings and have a central location to easily network with one another and other departments on campus, Sangirardi said. There also is a separate area in the basement of the Union below the food court where student organizations can apply for storage space for supplies and materials, he said.

Doctoral candidate to lead workshop on equality, justice

The Center for Social Justice and Sooner Parents are holding a workshop at noon today in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Sooner Room. The workshop will be about how to integrate strategies like knowing the inherent injustice incorporated into getting a job, may it be through skin color or gender, said Mallory Gladstein, program coordinator for the Center for Social Justice. “Realistically, not everyone is going to be in a job in social justice or jobs historically centered around social justice but there are ways to implement social justice into any job and this is going to give some strategy about how to do this,” Gladstein said. Erin Simpson, the center coordinator for Walker Center and adult and higher education doctoral candidate, will lead the workshop. Her research centers on equality, access and social justice topics, Gladstein said. Free pizza will be provided. Morgan George Campus Reporter

Letter to the editor

Campus parking is unsatisfactory This letter is regarding the unavailability of sufficient parking spots in the University of Oklahoma. While OU depicts its parking system as satisfactory and convenient, the students who make use of this system seem to think otherwise. As a student of the university and also a car owner, I have been able to experience the full effect of the university’s parking system. I have used this system for two whole years and can confidently say it is insufficient. Every day, a student uses an average of 10 minutes trying to find a parking spot. Finding a parking spot remotely close to your class is already a hassle. Even when a spot is found, it might not be one you are permitted to use, though you may have a parking permit. Considering the amount parking tickets cost, the parking system should be more convenient. Instead of making student parking more convenient by increasing parking spots, the university invests more in giving parking tickets. However, these tickets are not just given to students without the parking permit but also to those with permits. The university gave out almost 52,000 tickets last year. A good amount of those tickets were given to students with permits who just parked at spots not covered by their permits. Where should a student with, for instance, a north oval permit, park when there are no spots available at the north oval? Therefore, the University of Oklahoma should spend more on creating a better parking system than it should on giving parking tickets. Joshua Ditep is a petroleum engineering sophomore.

Guantanamo Bay riots highlight need for prisoner release

G

Opinion columnist uantanamo Bay. Do you remember how President Barack Obama promised to close this nightmare of a prison in 2008? Well, guess what, it’s still open and now inmates are protesting. Jeff Black Guantanamo needs to jeffreyblack@ou.edu be shut down for good, some prisoners need to be released and others need to be transferred to maximum-security prisons in our own country. Prisoners began another round of hunger strikes last week in protest of their captivity. Close to 100 out of the 166 detainees have been given the OK for release, but remain imprisoned in a foreign land thousands of miles from their homes. Eighty-four prisoners have joined the hunger strike that started in February. Hunger strikes are a regular event at Guantanamo Bay, but this protest is one of the longest. The protest has gone on so long the health of at least 16 of the prisoners is threatened. Prison officials have required force-feeding by a tube. Detainees are being force-fed so they can continue to be imprisoned for what might be the rest of their lives. Tension surrounding the protests is mounting. April 13 the protests turned ugly when violence erupted during a raid. Prisoners fought back. They wielded makeshift weapons made of broomsticks and mop handles. Prison guards responded by firing rubber bullets at the rioters. What were officials at Guantanamo expecting? There are men at Guantanamo who have never been brought up on charges and never had a trial. It’s not surprising prisoners resorted to violence — they are being indefinitely detained even though they are innocent, or have never seen the inside of a courtroom. Many prisoners have been at the Guantanamo facility since 2002. The U.S. holding people on no basis is shameful. We have to release the detainees that have been deemed innocent. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but they have rights. Obama is taking action on important issues that relate to our country, but he has slipped on his promise of closing down Guantanamo. Obama needs to follow through on his promise to close Guantanamo Bay — we haven’t forgotten, Mr. President. Innocent detainees need to be released, taken back to their families and compensated generously for their wrongful imprisonment. Guilty detainees need to be moved to maximum security prisons within the U.S. Jeff Black is a broadcasting junior.

Sooners head to Denton to face UNT OU, North Texas finally square off after cancellation

Arkansas game canceled because of poor weather The No. 11 Oklahoma baseball team’s game against the No. 14 Arkansas Razorbacks has been canceled because of pending rain in the Fayetteville, Ark., area. According to weather. com, rain is supposed to start tonight and continue throughout the day tomorrow. No makeup replacement game has been announced. The Sooners (31-10, 8-4 Big 12) return to action against Texas Tech at 6:30 p.m. Friday at L. Dale Mitchell Park.

Joe Mussatto Sports Reporter

Tonight will be the last time the No. 1 OU softball team faces a non-conference opponent until the p o s t s e a s o n , a s i t t a ke s on North Texas at 4 p.m. at L ovelace Stadium in Denton, Texas. The Sooners (39-3) are coming off a series victory over No. 7 Texas, and tonight’s contest will be a tune-up for another Big 12 series beginning Friday at Marita Hynes Field versus Iowa State. Coach Patty Gasso has mentioned the importance of midweek games to avoid long layoffs in the conference schedule. “[The players] are pretty mature in the way of knowing that we need to get better,” Gasso said. “Anytime you play someone in another uniform, it has a different meaning.” Hosting the top-ranked team in the nation will be a trying task for North Texas, but the squad is no stranger to facing the Big 12’s best. T h e Me a n G re e n h a s faced No. 7 Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor and Oklahoma State so far this season. They even notched two victories against those teams, and the Sooners are not taking North Texas lightly. “We know that anyone can beat anyone on any given day,” sophomore infielder Lauren Chamberlain said. “We know if we take a

play off and we aren’t on our game that our schedule is tough, and anyone can jump on an opportunity when they see it.” Maintaining the same level of focus and intensity the Sooners displayed against No. 7 Texas will not be as easy against the Mean Green. North Texas sits in 83rd place in the RPI Ratings. But the Sooners know they need to maintain their sharpness against any opposition.

“What we’re bringing to the table right now isn’t the best we’ve got. We’re just looking for that next game.” Lauren chamberlain, sophomore infielder

“We’re expecting their pitchers to bring it, and we’re expecting their team to bring it,” senior oufielder Brianna Turang said. “I

know they’ve been doing really well lately, so we’re just going to have to come out and fight.” Gasso is looking for hardfought at bats above anything, she said. Working the count and staying patient is something the Sooners have been able to do all season. With the final non-conference game this evening, the Sooners wrap up an out-of-league schedule that the team dropped just two

games. The level of focus has not faltered all season, and the players have made it clear they aren’t content. “What we’re bringing to the table right now isn’t the best we’ve got,” Chamberlain said. “We’re just looking for that next game.” Joe Mussatto jmusatto@ou.edu

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The University of Oklahoma women’s basketball team has added a transfer from Texas A&M. OU coach Sherri Coale said Monday that freshman guard Peyton Little will transfer to OU for the fall semester. Little will sit out next season and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining. Little played in all 35 games for Texas A&M last season. She averaged 4.5 points and 1.2 rebounds per game. Associated Press

New album reveals posh sound LIFE & ARTS COLUMNIST

F

rench alt-rocker band Phoenix has been blazing its own trail for over a decade, gradually working its way into the American music consciousness with singles “If I Ever Feel Better” and “Consolation Prizes,” and finally its accessible album, 2009’s “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.” The Grammy award-winning “Wolfgang Amadeus” represented the pinnacle of Phoenix’s journey to the forefront of the global pop-rock scene, and there was much speculation as to how they would follow up such an influential work. They’ve answered that question today, unequivocally, with “Bankrupt!” Phoenix, like many of its contemporaries, has gone in an entirely new direction in the making of its fifth full-length album, trying not to outdo its definitive record but instead to redefine its sound. What results is an evocative synth-filled journey that evokes sounds as diverse as Vampire Weekend, David Bowie, and Swedish pop group a-ha. Phoenix begins “Bankrupt!” with a song named after a men’s fragrance, “Drakkar Noir.” The
