OU Health Sciences Center researchers found that reduced lung function might be a sign of diabetes in Native Americans, according to a new published paper. The study was conducted by the Center for American Indian Health Research at the OU College of Public Health. Researchers looked at Native American men and women with and without diabetes and measured lung functions. They found decreased lung function often preceded signs of diabetes, College of Public Health professor and researcher Fawn Yeh said. Lung function tests measure the strength of the lungs, air capacity , exhaling capacity and exhaling speed The lung function was a possible indictor of type 2 diabetes, which is characterized by an inability to eliminate sugars from the blood because of an insulin resistance, according to the American Diabetes Association. Doctors test blood glucose and sugar levels to determine whether a patient is diabetic, Yeh said, and lung impairment develops prior to this . The study is not definitive enough to say decreased lung function will be a sure predictor of diabetes, but it is a step in the right direction, Yeh said. Diabetes is often part of a larger problem called

You should totally do a ghost tour in Oklahoma.’” Provine gathered the ethereal tales through a variety of means including personal interviews, a book by

former OU president George Lynn Cross and microfilm. Delving into historical research frightens current students enough as it is, but Provine weaves these yarns into his day-to-day life. “I write a blog, thisdayinalternatehistory.blogspot. com, which is all about finding the backgrounds of stories,” Provine said. “The History Channel does its ‘This Day In History,’ and I tweak it a little.”

New security measures still irk many


ecently, the Transportation Security Association has begun a new airport security measure. While in line to have carry-ons checked, passengers are approached by TSA security guards, who strike up conversations about the details of their travel. This new terrorism-prevention method is called “Chat-downs.” Honestly, who would say, “I’m going to XYZ state to commit XYZ crime”? The odds are slim to none. But the TSA is also working on training their workers to read body language signs and the inflection of the passenger’s voice. It’s hard to say how well this will work, but it’s not hard to tell people are upset about it. As American citizens, we

Religious groups must lower volume


ollege campuses attract people looking to spread a message. From the chalking on the sidewalks to the street preachers on the South Oval, everyone has something to say. Unfortunately, many religious groups and bands have something to say on WalkerAdams Mall. Religious groups have hosted evangelical concerts between the residence halls. The concerts generally last at least two hours and are so loud they can easily be heard on the fourth floor of either tower. I have no problem with the concept of evangelizing on a college campus. But there is

a difference between South Oval preachers and religious concerts on Walker-Adams Mall. Students can choose to walk away on the South Oval or retreat into a building if offended. But when religious groups hold concerts on WalkerAdams Mall, there’s no getting away. Students can go inside their rooms, but

unless they’re on an upper floor, the music and message is just as audible. This is a huge problem. Students of different faith backgrounds are forced to hear loud music about Jesus. This is not respectful to those students and hardly promotes the sense of community Housing and Food claims to want to provide. Furthermore, the loud music prevents students from studying in their own space. If a student is paying $4,030 a semester to live in the residence halls, he or she ought to be able to study in relative peace. If religious groups insist on having concerts on Walker-Adams, they should

take a page from Wildwood Community Church’s College Life. When College Life hosted a dance fundraiser in September, they were cautious to ensure the music was not too loud. They had many people participating, and the music was a reasonable volume for the participants, yet it was not audible from inside the residence halls. Religious groups must take steps to be more inclusive and respectful on campus. Turning down the volume when on WalkerAdams Mall ensures a better experience for all involved.

U.S. neither won nor lost Iraq conflicts


his week, OPINION COLUMNIST President Barack Obama announced America would be removing all troops from Iraq before the end of this year. I couldn’t help but feel extremely uncanny about this. Zachary Eldredge We invaded Iraq ( ing, you may remember, for weapons of mass destruction) in March 2003. At the time, I was in England, and I was 11. Obviously, the drums of war had been sounding for some time, but being 11 means these concerns only dimly enter your consciousness. To me, the war seemed like a dramatic flipping of a switch. One moment there were international tensions, and the next moment thousands of Americans were pouring into a foreign country, deposing one government and beginning to introduce a new one. The war will have lasted eight years and 251 days. I am 19 years, four months and 23 days old, meaning we have been in Iraq for about 45 percent of my life. For most of the time I can recall, we have been at war in Iraq. Its ending seems surreal, a possibility I had come to regard as unlikely. The announcement we are finally, totally pulling out — not reducing troop levels, not beginning to install Iraqi security forces, but actually extracting ourselves — seems like just as sudden a switch-flip as the day I saw the bombing footage headlined shock and awe. The Iraq war is not a war we won. That said, it isn’t quite one we lost. “Mission Accomplished” was announced just 40 days after the invasion. That image of triumph has become a symbol of folly and arrogance in the intervening years. We went in because we believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and would assist terrorists. We never found the weapons of mass destruction, and Hussein’s terrorist affiliations were judged nonexistent by the 9/11 Commission as well as a Senate committee. The original mission couldn’t be accomplished even if we had been cheered as liberators and the Iraqis busied themselves building a peaceful civil society immediately. It is often pointed out, however, that our war did away with Hussein’s reign of terror, and that is justification enough. True, we did away with this dictator, but let’s be honest: The United States does not generally make a policy of invading every country with a dictatorial government. As our record in, say, Iran shows, we’re in fact sadly prone to installing them. Still, if I look for a bright spot among the whole mess, Hussein’s removal would be it. And it’s hard to say we lost per se, in the sense we were defeated, or the factions we were at war with or developed to go to war with us “won.” In the end, we will not even leave in victory or of our choosing. President Barack Obama wanted to extend the military presence in Iraq but could not come to an agreement with the Iraqi government. While we attempted to insist on legal immunity for our soldiers, the Iraqi government refused to grant an extension of this immunity past Dec. 31. Without this immunity, our troops could be tried under Iraqi law in Iraqi courts and, unwilling to accept that situation, we are leaving. No doubt the president will spin this as a win, and maybe in some sense, finally leaving is a win. Make no mistake though, with the exception of a large embassy and private security forces for that embassy, we are being kicked out. If we didn’t win the Iraq War, who did? Iraq, considering its current state, certainly didn’t. Maybe some wars don’t have winners. This one, however, certainly has losers, and let’s not forget them. It’s estimated we lost $3 trillion, probably more, but the human cost outstrips that. 4,479 American soldiers died. 30,182 were injured. At least 100,000 Iraqi civilians were killed. Remember that the next time the president refers to our “success.” Zach Eldredge is a physics sophomore.

STUART WING: Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art will be permanent home to Eugene B. Adkins’ Native American art collection; exhibit features art by Native American artists Continued from page 1 largest collections of Taos and Native American art. “I am impressed with all of the Native American art,” Wilson said. “It seems fitting for the University of Oklahoma; [they’ve] carved out a niche for themselves.” Spectators and directors alike are excited about what the new collection will bring to the university, museum director Ghislain d’Humières said. The new wing features the Eugene B. Adkins’ Native American art collection, which features about 3,300 pieces of art. The collection features more than 400 paintings and is valued at about $50 million, according to the Eugene B. Adkins’ informational pamphlet. About 75 percent of the collection was crafted by Native American artists. The collection will be a permanent exhibit at The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. Adkins was born in Chouteau ,Okla. and received an art history degree from Dartmouth and a graduate degree in business from Stanford. He is considered an authority on western paintings and Native American pottery, baskets and jewelry. The collection includes an extensive selection of traditional Native American paintings. The paintings display an attention to realistic detail. The paintings seem to be capturing a moment like a photograph, rather than simply painting a picture. The community celebration’s main focus was the Adkins exhibit and Native American culture. It also featured live performances by musicology professor and Native American flutist Paula Conlon and musician and storyteller Kathryn Thurman. Conlon said she believes

the Adkins collection was an excellent choice for a permanent exhibit at the museum. She said it is great for the university to display Oklahoma’s extensive Native American Culture. “It’s fantastic,” Conlon said. “I think that people expect it here, Oklahoma is Indian territory and it gives access to students as well as the community to the art.”

She also said it is great for teaching because it allows professors to give an added element when teaching about Native American culture and history. OU graduate Lilian Aldehneh attended the event and said she thought the new wing was a beautiful addition to campus. The exhibit is informative of Native American culture, which is often overlooked, Aldehneh said. “It was nice to see Native Americans celebrated,” Aldehneh said. “I feel like people forget about all the great artwork and culture they have.” The wing has been under construction since 2009.

HOROSCOPE By Bernice Bede Osol

Monday, Oct. 2 24, 2011

Flow with events, because significant changes can be made in the year ahead that could carry you to new areas of opportunity that you might never find otherwise. These alterations will trigger unique developments. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A devious co-worker who picks up on your reluctance to make waves will try to use it against you. Stand up for your rights rather than be trampled upon. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Take extra care not to inadvertently butt into a conversation that isn’t any of your business. Even if you have an excellent suggestion for parties involved, they’ll resent your interference.





Previous Solution         









Monday- Very Easy Tuesday-Easy Wednesday- Easy Thursday- Medium Friday - Hard

Instructions: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9. That means that no number is repeated in any row, column or box.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Handle all involvements that could reflect on your reputation in as skillful a manner as you can muster. Improper behavior would leave stains difficult to eradicate. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It behooves you to plan your day wisely so that you do not waste valuable time on things that could turn out to be of small or no consequence. Focus on meaningful activities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When you want to be, you can be pretty shrewd in telling a good deal from a bum steer. Get your head out of the clouds in order to keep your vision clear. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you and your partner are not in accord over a major decision that

has to be made, a major battle could ensue. Hold off until the situation changes or one of you is ready to compromise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --Get your priorities in order, or you could end up working rather hard at something that has little promise, while turning your back on a great opportunity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You could have your priorities mixed up by ignoring a sure thing, while squandering your assets on something that is known to be a bad risk. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If it seems like everyone is giving you a bad time, they could merely be reacting to your behavior. However, it isn’t likely you’ll be lonely -- misery loves company. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are all kinds of warning signals surrounding you, concerning numerous complications of your own making. Be extra mindful of both what you do and what you fail to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It behooves you to conduct all your financial affairs in a forthright, friendly manner. If you act too tough or display too much greed in business matters, you’ll drive people away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Although you’re pretty good at making deals, you could run into someone who is even better. Don’t underestimate your competition in any circumstances.

Texas Tech



Raider revenge

Visit for more coverage of Saturday’s loss, including fan reactions


James Corley, sports editor • phone: 405-325-3666

Also on | SOCCER: Sooners lose two during weekend road trip in Texas | FOOTBALL: Saturday’s loss a perfect storm for Oklahoma


39-game streak snapped Sooners fall to No. 9 in Sunday’s newest BCS rankings JAMES CORLEY Sports Editor

Te x a s Te c h n o t o n l y upended third-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday — the Red Raiders became just the third team to beat a Bob Stoops team in Norman.

The Sooners were riding a school-record 39game win streak on Owen Field. The last time OU lost in Oklahoma Memorial Stadium was to TCU, 17-10, in the 2005 home opener. The first loss at home under Stoops was against Oklahoma State, 16-13, in the 2001 home closer. It was the first loss any of the current Sooners had

ever suffered at home in their collegiate careers, including senior wide receiver Ryan Broyles. After the game, Broyles said the loss felt like any other. However, the expressions on the players’ faces in the postgame interview room told a different story because Tech’s 41-38 win against Oklahoma also may

have derailed the Sooners’ national championship hopes. The Sooners tumbled in the most recent BCS poll, falling from No. 3 to No. 9. OU will have to work to potentially have another shot with games against No. 8 Kansas State, No. 16 Texas A&M, Baylor, Iowa State and No. 3 Oklahoma State left on its schedule.



Sophomore infielder Javen Henson slides into home to score one of the Sooners’ 13 runs during Friday’s game against Newman University. Oklahoma has outscored its opponents 60-1 in three games during its fall exhibition season.

Sooner brings home the gold Keilani Ricketts plays for U.S. team in Pan Am Games TOBI NEIDY

Sports Reporter

While OU softball continues to trounce its fall opponents, including a 13-1 win against Newman on Friday in Norman, the Sooners have been finding ways to win without their ace pitcher Keilani Ricketts in the circle. No, Ricketts isn’t tending to an injury or anything — the junior southpaw is winning gold medals. Ricketts is with the U.S. national team for the 2011 Pan American games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Te a m U S A d o w n e d

Canada, 11-1, in four innings to capture its seventh consecutive gold in the run-ruled game on Sunday. The Americans completed a perfect 9-0 tournament sweep of their opponents, increasing their overall performance to 84-3 in the Pan Am Games. Prior to Team USA’s advancement to the gold medal game Sunday, Ricketts performed admirably on the mound for the Americans. Against Cuba, Ricketts struck out 11 of the 19 batters she faced while giving up the lone run on a wild pitch. Against Canada, Ricketts replaced starter Whitney Canion in the first inning

and battled through a bases-loaded situation to help resettle the U.S. defense. Ricketts allowed just five hits through the last four innings against the Maple Leafs to give the Americans the chance to capitalize on offense. The Americans came through with a 12 -5 victory, and Ricketts picked up her second win of the Games. Ricketts’ first win came against host nation, Mexico, for her four-inning, onehit performance to lead Team USA to a 7-0 run-rule victory. Back in Norman, the Sooners have outscored opponents 60-1 on 61 hits through the first three games of the fall stint. Newman scored the sole

run in the fourth inning of Friday’s game. This type of domination during the fall games is typical for the Sooners, who face a lineup of junior colleges and Division II teams, making Ricketts’ opportunity to go up against top international batters a valuable experience for her pitching repertoire. So while Ricketts will bring another gold medal home to the OU softball program, the Sooners will continue to defend their territory in Norman through the last few games of the fall schedule. And both experiences will undoubtedly help ready OU’s softball program for the upcoming spring season.


OU seals win in 4 sets against KSU Sooners ride winning momentum to close game early against Wildcats LUKE MCCONNELL Sports Reporter

The No. 22 Sooners were a bit tired of going to five sets, having gone to five in six of the past eight matches, so they closed the door on Kansas State early Saturday afternoon. The OU volleyball team rallied in the third set to steal momentum from the Wildcats and rode that momentum to a 3-1 (-20, 20-25, -22, -21) win against the Wildcats at McCasland Field House. The Sooners moved to 19-5 this year and finished the first half of Big 12 play 6-2. OU was led offensively by freshman outside hitter Tara Dunn, who had a double-double with 13 kills and 12 digs. Sophomore middle blocker Sallie McLaurin had 11 kills and seven blocks. Junior libero MarĂ­a Fernanda had 22 digs to pace the defense. Senior setter Brianne Barker had a double-double with 40 assists and 13 digs and showed no signs of the injury she sustained to her left ring finger last week TOP PERFORMER against Kansas. Tara Dunn The Wildcats were led by sophomore middle Year: blocker Kaitlynn Pelger Freshman who had a match-high Position: 26 kills and 14 digs. Outside Sophomore outside hitter hitter Lilla Porubek and junior Hometown: middle blocker Alex Muff Poth, Texas had 13 kills each. Game stats: O U c o a c h Sa nt i ag o 13 kills, .316 hitting percentage, 12 Restrepo said it was a total digs, one block solo, two team effort to make the block assists Wildcats more one-dimensional on offense. “We talked from the beginning about shutting down 17 (Pelger) and 11 (Porubek),â€? Restrepo said “We did a good job on 11, the outside hitter, but then the other middle (Muff) did another good job with them. Different players are going to step up in different matches.â€? OU only had 54 kills, 12 less than KSU, but Restrepo said he wasn’t worried about it. “What I worry about is the distribution, and it’s pretty even among four players,â€? Restrepo said. “When it comes down to the Big 12, everyone is pretty good.â€? OU was without junior outside hitter Morgan Reynolds again, who will miss 2-3 weeks with a dislocated disc in her back. However, senior outside hitter Caitlin Higgins filled in with solid number, throwing down seven kills and picking up 13 digs. “I’m just trying to work on getting my confidence back, just being a good defensive player and a good passer,â€? Higgins said. “I do what I can on the front, but I really need to work on defense, which is what our team needs and what I’m good at.â€? Higgins said it was tough to not be in the rotation as much as she was used to, but a change in mindset helped her persevere. “I really had to just focus and settle down and think, ‘I just have to contribute for my team,’â€? Higgins said. “Once I understood that, I started playing a little better.â€?
