Athletic Board looks to foster well-being of student athletes By Emily Gerber THE DAILY CARDINAL
The University of Wisconsin Athletic Board focused discussion at Friday’s meeting on finding ways UW-Madison can improve the athletic department, highlighting the need to increase and maintain student welfare. Athletic Board Chair Dale Bjorling said he recently attended the National Collegiate Athletic Association convention in San Diego, where conversation centered on the governing of college athletic programs. Bjorling said he thinks to maintain the strength of conferences such as the Big Ten, which UW-Madison is a part of, there needs to be more support given from NCAA. “To support student athletes at their institutions, [the conferences] need more latitude than is currently allowed by the NCAA,” Bjorling said. According to Bjorling, the idea to lend more support to the larger conferences was not
well received by the smaller conferences in attendance, as they felt it would put them at a disadvantage when it comes time to recruit. Another topic brought up at the convention was concern on the amount of time players spend on their sport, Bjorling said. “Most national surveys show that student athletes spend an average of 40 hours a week on their sport,” Bjorling said, though he mentioned this number was likely an underestimate. Combined with class schedules, Bjorling estimated student athletes are occupied around 85 hours a week with either school or sport. The concern regarding the large time commitment is that there is little time left for students to partake in extracurricular activity. Bjorling said the NCAA commissioner urged schools to look at ways of ensuring more of a balance for students, so they can pursue endeavors like internships or other activities.
Faculty Athletic Rep. Sheila McGuirk, who was also in attendance in San Diego, said the NCAA is discussing the possibility of lessening the penalties associated with “street drug” abuse, such as alcohol and marijuana, which serve no purpose of enhancing a player’s athletic performance.
Violators will be subject to $60 fines along with the risk of having their vehicle towed, according to the release. For residents who have nowhere to park their vehicle overnight, city ramps will allow free parking from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. However, cars stored for over 48 hours will be at risk of being towed or drivers will be ticketed.

McGuirk cited the current penalty of alcohol abuse is a year-long suspension and said there are plans to reduce that punishment to only half of a season. The Athletic Board will have its next meeting Feb. 21.
City of Madison declares snow emergency through Tuesday The city of Madison declared a city-wide snow emergency Sunday that will last until 7 a.m. Tuesday, and will affect side parking throughout city streets, according to a news release. Starting Jan. 27, during the evening, cars parked on the streets must park on the even house-numbered side of the road, according to the release.
Madison’s late-night vending could see fewer licenses and a change in vending sites, according to recommendations from a city Office of Business Resources memo. Late-night vending is allowed in the city between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. for customers to purchase food after most typical business hours. The recommendations include only allowing a maximum of 10 licenses annually for eight large food carts and two pushcarts. Currently, the city has no limit on the amount of late-night vending licenses, and the changes are an effort to pre-
vent a flux of vendors in allotted vending zones for 2014, according to the memo. For vendors who are unable to acquire a license, the Office suggested creating a wait-list that would allow vendors a chance to receive licenses from vendors with expired licenses. Another plan included allowing vendors with the most seniority the first choice for vending locations. Plans for new vending locations mentioned in the memo include relocating large food carts to Frances Street, West Gilman Street and Broom Street. Two pushcarts would be permit-
The Brittingham Park Shelter off of West Washington Avenue will also allow parking for residents in need. All daytime parking restrictions will be in effect during the snow emergency. There are selected blocks in the downtown and Isthmus area that restrict all parking during a snow emergency, according to the release.

Dr. Vince Cryns said UW-Madison is among the most welcoming institutions he has worked with for undergraduate research. By Adelina Yankova THE DAILY CARDINAL
The work of University of Wisconsin-Madison professor of medicine Dr. Vince Cryns seems paradoxical at first: he looks for ways to kill cells to save lives. Cryns’ research, which focuses on finding ways of killing diseased cells in patients suffering from triple-negative breast cancer, has become revolutionary in its discovery of a link between this type of breast cancer, brain cancer and the protein alphaB-crystallin. Triple-negative breast cancer, which is responsible for approximately 15 percent of all breast cancer cases, lacks estrogen, progesterone and HER2 receptors, the three sites normally targeted by conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy,
Cryns said. It is a particularly aggressive cancer most commonly present in young women, with increased frequency in African American and Hispanic women. It is also a cancer that commonly diffuses to the brain, a complication which often results in patient death, according to Cryns. AlphaB-crystallin, the normal purpose of which is to protect cells from stress, Cryns said, has the currently inexplicable ability to guard cancer cells against death, allowing them to escape the breast tissue and survive in new environments, ultimately facilitating their spread to other areas of the body. “Discovery of this protein provides us with a molecule we can

The Dirty Bird sex and the student body Welcome a new dirty bird and sex positivity Michael Podgers sex columnist
ello readers, and welcome back to getting down with the Dirty Bird. Regular readers may have already noticed Alex Tucker isn’t writing this column; she is currently taking a semester leave and handed over the duties of writing the Dirty Bird to me. Like Alex, I am a peerto-peer sexual health educator at UW-Madison. I look forward to writing the Dirty Bird this semester. Hopefully I can fill the big shoes left for me. As always, the Dirty Bird is here to titillate, educate and open our minds to the wonderful world of sex. I’m going to take a bit of liberty and forego answering a question for the first article and go over some basic sexual health mumbo jumbo… or, one bit of mumbo jumbo: sex positivity. Sex positivity is the key to my approach to sexual health and sexual health education. It’s a broad term, which generally describes taking an openminded and respectful view of people’s individual sexualities and desires. It celebrates a healthy diversity of sexualities and sexual desires, as well as relationship structures and personal choices so long as they are based on consent.
Although the precise definition of sex positivity can change over time and place, consensual sex must remain a constant. Sometimes this term is misconstrued with being the same as other theories on sexuality like free love. Sex positivity stands apart based on its open acceptance of all combinations of sexual behavior, assuming they are consensual. Concepts similar to sex positivity show up in some unexpected places. The World Health Organization has a specific definition of “healthy sexuality” that embraces an inherent belief in pleasure as being an important and perhaps essential part of healthy sexuality. The WHO defines healthy sexuality as being “a state of physical, emotional, and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease … Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relations as well as the possibility of having pleasurable … sexual experiences.” This definition includes the lack of coercion or violence (i.e. sexual assault) and discrimination. These are “sexual rights” as described by WHO and almost perfectly align with the definition of sex positivity. The potential for pleasure, the
One salty crust punk wrecks The Grammys Thor Von Killpenstien guest columnist
uring my prepubescent years, before I realized the inherent atrocities of consuming prescribed mass media and celebrity garbage, The Grammys meant something to me. Mostly because my mom would make kettle corn. Damn, I love kettle corn. I’ve always been somewhat of an audiophile. Setting up my first sound system at age four was a delight, but soon, the trite music tastes of the troglodyte children I was unfortunately forced into “play dates” grew old. I mean, Motörhead is, looking back, fairly bland compared to most stuff I was spinning preK, so when little Tyler Fogel (bless his ignorant soul) stopped breathing for a full three minutes when I duct-taped him to a chair and blasted “Ace of Spades” on repeat for the duration of our stupid “date,” I knew it was time to not only dump my lame *N SYNC-obsessed “friends,” but the music industry as a whole.
So did I watch The Grammys this year? Did the rest of the world decide to ignore Beyoncé’s performance and instead dedicate five minutes of their uniteresting lives to some sort of creative outlet? Of course not, because the gross consumerist ideals perpetuated by award shows such as The Grammys both detract from legitimate artists and make passive couch-viewing seem like a “cool,” and moverover, acceptable, cultural norm. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhg. It pains me to see people follow such a counterintuitive, onedimensial music industry. In an ideal America, everyone rejects this sad state of affairs and finds their own identity instead of having one methodically applied to them. But I digress... fuck The Grammys. Pardon my French, but there’s really no way around being explicit. This is a big deal. I know expecting people to think for themselves is a lot to ask. But at the same time, Tyler spent eight years in therapy after our little Motörhead incident. The last thing I need is another insecure hater. One of these days everyone will be as cool as me, maybe.

Heroes of the weekend Officer Benjamin Schafer, UW-Madison Police Department— Coffee. Donuts. Excessive force. It was an ordinary Friday night for Officer Schafer... Until a routine noise complaint turned into an epic 45-second footrace. When Officer Schafer rolled up to 222 N. Carter to check out the complaint, multiple suspects burst out of the back door in an attempt to flee the scene. Schafer, who hadn’t moved faster than a brisk jog in over 10 years, singled out a perp and took off after him. Schafer ran like a much younger man that night. When his man slipped and fell on an ice-patch, Schafer was there to taser him unconscious. Schafer’s valiant actions in the line of duty have made him a hero-cop, and a hero to us all. Peter Dunham, senior—Peter Dunham, a bouncer at Wando’s, confiscated a record 27 fake IDs from underage children attempting to gain entry to the bar. Dunham used his keen bouncer instincts to sniff out the counterfeit licenses, making sure laminated pictures matched faces and birthdays checked out. Everyone knows that young children should not be allowed to purchase or consume alcohol, a dangerous liquid drug that makes people act silly and weird. Dunham’s diligence ensured the safety of all 27 children, who went home to enjoy sweet, fizzy soft drinks instead of alcohol. Dunham is a hero to us all.

Two men stabbed outside of Jolly Bob’s restaurant Two men were stabbed outside of Jolly Bob’s restaurant early Sunday morning after engaging in a physical fight, according to the Madison police officer in charge on call Sunday. According to the incident report, the two victims along with a group of their friends were gathered outside the restaurant when a quarrel broke out between the group and other patrons. The two groups started a physical fight which lead to the
stabbing of the victims. The two male victims, aged 26 and 28 years old from Madison, were sent to the hospital shortly after the stabbing, according to the report. The victims suffered from non lifethreatening injuries, according to the officer in charge. The suspects are described as a group of eight to 10 black males in their twenties wearing dark clothing, according to the report. Detectives are still searching for the suspects.
Walker declares state of emergency Gov. Scott Walker declared a state of emergency in response to severe winter weather and a “dangerously low” propane supply in an executive order Saturday. The supply shortage has caused delivery delays and reduced the amount of propane being delivered to Wisconsin and all Midwestern states, according to a release. Approximately 250,000 Wisconsin residents use propane to heat their homes or businesses. Several factors contributed to the shortage, according to the release. Unusually cold temperatures made propane transportation more difficult, a major pipeline supplying propane to the Midwest temporarily closed for maintenance and grain farmers needed more
propane to dry crops due to a wet fall. “The health and safety of our citizens is our number one priority, and this declaration gives us the necessary resources to protect the residents of Wisconsin,” Walker said in the release. “Since last fall, we have taken action to help alleviate the impact the propane shortage is having on our state.” According to the release, Walker’s administration has combated the shortage by allowing propane transportation drivers to log more than the federally allowed 70 hours per week and to carry more propane per trip. Walker will speak after meeting with propane stakeholders Monday. —Dana Kampa

Retreat highlights work skills Transferable skills may be of greater assistance to students entering the job market than profession-specific expertise, University Health Services Director Sarah Van Orman said as part of University of WisconsinMadison’s first student employee retreat Saturday. The event, held at Gordon Commons, was collaboratively organized by UHS and WiGrow, an initiative aimed at providing students with opportunities to gain adaptable talents through student employment “that can be applied to any future endeavor,” according to the program’s website.

Steven Lawrence, owner of Fried and Fabulous, said his largest concern with the revisions are the proposed vending locations. “The city staff that were making recommendations on these locations are totally unfamiliar with what this area is like,” Lawrence said. Lawrence presented Warren Hansen, the coordinator of the Office of Business Resources, with a city map he created showing approximately 70 locations that would provide sufficient space for vendors and enough foot traffic to appropriately sus-
tain a business. Lawrence said he was disappointed to see the city staff disregard his suggestions and instead recommend eight vending spaces in a “single configuration” making vending locations congested. Lawrence contacted owners of University of WisconsinMadison private residence halls, such as Statesider and the Towers to confirm the vendors would not be a burden to the areas that were restricted by the office. Lawrence said some of the owners responded enthusiastically, saying the vendors would work as an amenity to the residence halls. The Vending Oversight Committee will review the memo Wednesday.
The University of WisconsinMadison announced Friday Vice Chancellor for Research and Dean of the Graduate School Martin Cadwallader will retire from his current position and return to the faculty. After serving in the position for nearly 13 years, Cadwallader will resume his role as a faculty member in the geography department in August, according to a statement. “It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to lead the research and graduate CADWALLADER education missions of such a great university,” Cadwallader said in the statement. During Cadwallader’s tenure, he helped create the Office of Research Policy and the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, as well as aided in making UW-Madison the third ranked research university in the U.S. UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank commended Cadwallader’s work in expanding graduate school and research opportunities at the university. Blank said she and the University Committee are looking to change the structure of leadership and fill the position with two separate people.

In addition to featuring speakers focused around social justice and stress management, the retreat offered mock interview sessions and resume workshops for students employed by the university.

Cryns said he is a strong proponent of interactivity and collaboration, and believes young researchers should be motivated by the innate curiosity to understand the natural world. “Be creative, follow your passions and try to do work that is interesting and has a potential to have an impact,” he said.
Walker supports technical education Gov. Scott Walker addressed education leaders from Wisconsin Friday at the State Education Convention, according to a release. Walker supported expanding Dual Enrollment Academics, allowing high school seniors to take courses for both high school and technical college credits, according to the release. “The Dual Enrollment program prepares high school students to be workforce ready for good-paying jobs in high-need areas after graduation,” Walker said in a previous release. Additionally, State School
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers and Walker worked on revisions to allow computer science courses to count toward math or science graduation requirements. Walker and the Legislature are also working to create a process that would “develop Wisconsin-based model academic standards” and allow public input and open discussion. “The education leaders here in our state are most qualified to assess the best way to take the standards we set for students to the next level,” Walker said in the release.

Record of the Year “Get Lucky”—Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” from their fourth studio album Random Access Memories won for Best Record of the Year after topping charts in over 30 countries. Co-written with Nile Rodgers of Chic fame and Pharrell Williams, the song features Williams’ soaring vocals backed by jubilant beats and plucky bass grooves. The French duo—Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo—performed on television for only the second time ever, disguised in Star Wars stormtrooper helmets, as is true Daft Punk fashion. Joined by the great Stevie Wonder, their performance of “Get Lucky” was truly a onetime event that showcased the
track perfectly. However, in my opinion the better record was Lorde’s single “Royals” which was released in November 2012 and has since been on a steady rise in charts around the world. The New Zealand teenager’s powerful vocals and minimalistic beats provided a fresh alternative to an industry of over-produced melodies. Additionally, her lyrics criticizing a culture focused on fame and consumerism defiantly challenged mainstream ideas of success while remaining catchy. As a complete newcomer, beating out Daft Punk was a long shot, but at 17-years-old Lorde has plenty of time to either become a one-hit-wonder or develop into an even stronger and more unique performer. —Rose Lundy
Album of the Year Random Access Memories— Daft Punk According to Mashable.com, 91 percent of people thought Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories would win this award—and they were right. Beating out some worthy contenders, such as Taylor Swift’s Red, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ The Heist and Sara Bareilles’ The Blessed Unrest, the two robots took home the prize. Because I have a penchant for real rock music, Queens of the Stone Age and Led Zeppelin should have been nominated here rather than Swift or Macklemore. To replace Sara Bareilles in the “out of nowhere” addition to this category, I would add Out Here by the Christian McBride Trio.
When The Daily Cardinal Arts staff put together our top25 albums of the year, I was the only one strongly lobbying for this album to be at the top. It ended up at 21, so I guess I either have ESP or poor persuasive skills. To the skeptics: No, Random Access Memories isn’t Homework, Discovery or Human After All, but you can’t hold that against them. Yes, disco has been dead since the late ’70s, but “Get Lucky” is inarguably the catchiest song of the year and “Giorgio By Moroder” is the best electronic song of the year, in my humble opinion. Congratulations to both Daft Punk and whomever votes on the Grammys for actually getting this one right. —Brian Weidy

Song of the Year “Royals”—Lorde Beating out such “heavyweights” as P!nk, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde took home Song of the Year for her shockingly catchy song “Royals.” A win for the 17-yearold from New Zealand should be seen as no big surprise. “Royals” has been inescapable ever since it travelled stateside and its competition in this category was a bit—how can I put this nicely—weak. However, Katy Perry doesn’t go home empty handed as “Roar” is in nearly every commercial. P!nk can also hold her head up as her live performance was considerably better than Lorde’s apparent seizures during her unique rendition of the now Grammy awardwinning song. At the end of the day, this was a two-horse
race between Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and the eventual winner Lorde. With that being said, Macklemore took home enough other tiny record players, and it’s been quite a bit of time since a bonafide pop hit won. But if I were nominating songs for this category—sorry to those which were nominated—I would have started anew. If “Kashmir” can be nominated for Best Rock Performance, there’s no reason it couldn’t be up for Song of the Year as well. If “Get Lucky” can win everything else, why can’t it win this too? Anything involving Paul McCartney and the remaining members of Nirvana can also be nominated. To cap things off, Kendrick Lamar should’ve had a song nominated, and lets add in “Radioactive” because that song is catchy as hell. —Brian Weidy
Best New Artist Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Grammy win for Best New Artist came within the first few minutes of the awards show, but did not come as much of a surprise. When their album The Heist was released in October 2012 it reached number one on iTunes in mere hours and later reached number one on the Billboard charts. Their critical acclaim and commercial success is a result of a balance between pounding anthems like “Can’t Hold Us” and “Thrift Shop” and the societal critiques in “A Wake (feat. Evan Roman)” and “Same Love.” The rap duo has since skyrocketed to fame with world tours and almost 500 million YouTube views of the
“Thrift Shop” music video. Still, the category was filled with strong contenders. James Blake’s third album Overgrown was phenomenal, but his relative anonymity in the United States made the likelihood of him winning very small. Country star Kacey Musgraves was overshadowed by powerhouse contenders Ed Sheeran, whose “A Team” was nominated in 2013 for Song of the Year and Kendrick Lamar, whose popularity inspired Internet outrage when he didn’t take home the gold gramophone. However, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis deserved their Grammy win, cementing their place as noteworthy musicians. —Rose Lundy
TOP THREE LIVE PERFORMANCES Metallica and Lang Lang In theory (and practice), classically trained musicians and metalheads go hand in hand. Both exemplify passions wrung through the straightened rigor of technique, and both (more often than not) go big. So it was fitting that this year classical pianist Lang Lang joined metal patriarch Metallica to perform a rendition of “One,” winner of the inaugural Grammy for Best Metal Performance back in 1990. So what was the result of placing a classical pianist in the midst of these gruff metalheads? Passion, wrought through flawless technique. The performance was immaculate—from Kirk Hammett’s furious solo to Lang’s thunderous key playing and James Hetfield’s melodious growl. Everyone looked great, too—Hammett rocked a Transformer shirt in honor of Lou Reed. Not to mention, in the beginning, they lit a ring of fire around Lang as he ushered in Metallica. Now that’s metal. —Sean Reichard
Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons
Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder
The logic underlying Grammy performances is sometimes baffling. Within reason, getting trendy acts to team up on stage and play medleys of their hit songs is fun and collaborative, but the result is usually hit or miss with plenty of emphasis on the miss side. One might have thought a team-up between Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar would be a definite miss—yet it turned out to be a definite hit. The basics of the collaboration’s success? Lamar killed it on stage between the verses he laid down from m.A.A.d city and the general intensity he brought to the proceedings. Lamar was on. And Imagine Dragons—loud, bombastic, replete with drums—were a surprisingly good foil to Lamar’s dominance. —Sean Reichard
Daft Punk may well have discovered the secret of time travel. And who would put it past those classy, classy French robots? That’s the default joke—that Daft Punk may well be automatons from the future—automatons who didn’t say a word in acceptance to any of the awards they took home during the night. Yet, when they took the stage with Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and the incomparable Stevie Wonder, they exuded as much heart and soul as their cohorts. Yes, you may have heard “Get Lucky” a million times in the past six months or so, but the Grammys’ “Get Lucky” electrified an already lively song and made it into something vibrant and exciting. Tonight, tomorrow, we’re all up to celebrate Daft Punk. —Sean Reichard

opinion Prison growth lacks moral fortitude 6
Monday, January 27, 2014
JEFF BIRNKRANT opinion columnist
he business of buying people doesn’t just mean the atrocities of child and prostitute human trafficking or the stupidity of certain individuals on Craigslist or Ebay. I’m talking about something that is going on within our own backyards as we sleep, work and pursue happiness. I’m talking about private prisons, the business of owning citizens at a “cheaper” more “efficient” cost. I fully understand the privatization movement and its intentions and believe that when those intentions are in support of free market principles, they are beneficial. As a society, however, we have moral obligations. Regulation will not fix our morality. The concept of owning prisoners, hiring guards and making
money for it is a moral failure. With profit comes the need to protect and make sure that profit keeps coming. Right around now the lobbyists enter the picture in order to advance whatever is needed to keep this system working for them. We have a serious addiction in our country. We like to incarcerate people. More than any developed country on the planet, that submits accurate information. In 2013 we clocked in at 716 people arrested per 100,000 Americans. This number may seem a little low at first, until you look down the list of developed nations. Russia had 490 people arrested per 100,000 citizens. Other much less industrialized nations had even lower numbers. Some would point to this as a victory in crime fighting, however, none of our allied friends who have similar societ-
ies appeared on the list. With the business of owning prisons, you’re motivated to expand your business and there is only one way to do that. Keep locking people up. The unfortunate truth, as the numbers above indicate, is that prisons are getting a steady supply of inmates every year in the range of 1.5 million a year. As the machine keeps going, the money keeps flowing. As a just society, it’s easy to see how the privatization movement would enter this territory, but do we have the will power to refuse that authority and rightfully restore it to the state? More freedom comes with privatization, but to do this on the basis of incarceration is almost human trafficking within itself. The chances of something immoral happening will increase without government regulation and involvement. The combined efforts of law enforcement unions, anti-drug groups
and the prison industry have created something much larger than we can control. Once that money started flowing, the politics changed to allow a society that incarcerates more people, a majority of them minorities, at an alarming rate. A day in the life of a prison company CEO is probably not far off from a human trafficker. If this doesn’t morally make you think twice about what we are doing, also check the facts. There is no clear indication that there is any positive impact in locking individuals up for certain crimes. Locking these individuals up can also induce a cycle that keeps their psyche destroyed when they leave, with some finding comfort only in the daily routine provided by the prison system. The rate of returning offenders can only increase in conditions that are not properly overseen. Therefore, the private
prisons can drive inmates of the facility to be ill prepared to reenter society in a functioning, positive manner. The southern United States, in particular, seems to employ much of these tactics as they enjoy lower taxes and less government. From the government’s perspective it’s in their best interest to choose the cheapest available option, causing competition amongst these prisons and, as in any case, losing quality along the way. There’s a reason that other countries don’t have nearly the same incarceration rates that we have. Unfortunately, we haven’t achieved the common sense required to make the necessary changes. Does the United States have a problem with over incarceration? Tell us your opinion at email@example.com.

Food truck owners continue to plead for expansion By Steven Lawrence FRIED AND FABULOUS
I’m greeting customers in front of Fried & Fabulous when a woman approaches followed by a man. He’s being sexually aggressive. She doesn’t know him and it’s pretty clear that the answer is no. The line of people at my food cart band together with me to tell him to go away, and he does. It is little things like having a food cart on a corner, which promote public safety and change downtown for the better. But, you are getting screwed by the out of touch city of Madison staff who don’t understand what downtown is like after midnight. The downtown streets contain dark, lonely stretches and you have to wait longer or walk further for late-night food because Broom Street is the only viable area where late night food carts are allowed. With a large cluster of carts on Broom Street, traffic is being tied up, restaurants and food carts are seeing their sales decline, parking is harder to come by and trash is more prevalent. A similar situation occurred several years ago on Frances, prompting the Vending Oversight Committee to shut down the street with many carts going out of business. I greatly fear the same thing happening again on Broom. For years now I’ve been trying to offer a more permanent solution. Given that a large cluster of carts have consistently caused controversy, it seems only logical to break the carts up into small clusters of 1-2 scattered throughout downtown. A majority of late night food cart owners spoke at the Vending Oversight Committee in December endorsing this solution. Seventy spaces were
later presented to city staff as possibilities in a variety of different configurations. Warren Hansen, the street vending coordinator for the city of Madison, has responded with a report recommending eight of these spaces in a single configuration that does little to reduce the cluster on Broom, and ignores giant portions of downtown, such as State Street. It seems that a food cart would produce too much noise for residents despite there already being the beer garden at Brats and or the screaming line of people outside Whiskey Jacks. We have to be careful on University Avenue because of the Fluno Center, according to an email from Warren “guards its serenity”. Serenity? Are you kidding me?! There is nothing serene about that area after midnight! That’s across the street from Johnny O’s! “It is little things like having afood cart on a corner, which promote public safety and change downtown for the better.” Steven Lawrence CEO

Warren might know that if he ever stopped by, but in the 3 years that I have had a cart, Warren has never visited the late night vending zone. When queried about the number of times he has visited, Warren responded in an email “I honestly do not remember.” This is the man who writes the recommendation on what the city should do and he can’t remem-

Don’t let late night food carts be put out of business. The Vending Oversight Committee meets at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 29 in room 260 of the Madison Municipal Building. Warren
can speak for as long as he wants, but anyone, including you, can speak for up to three minutes at the start. You have no idea how powerful your individual voice can be in convincing. I beg of you to please come and tell the committee what downtown is really like after midnight. If the committee votes for my plan, Fried & Fabulous will
give away free food on our first night in a new spot in order to show our gratitude. I suspect a couple other carts might do the same. How do you feel about the possible addition of late night food trucks around the downtown area? Are you willing to join Steven and other owners in support?

No. 2 Wisconsin sweeps UMD By Zach Rastall THE DAILY CARDINAL
Heading into their bye week, the No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers wanted to be riding a wave of momentum. They managed to do just that, earning a series sweep over WCHA rival Minnesota-Duluth. In the first game of the series on Saturday, the Badgers (16-3-2 WCHA, 21-3-2 overall) were able to get the 3-1 victory by scoring two goals in the first period and dominating on special teams. UW scored on two of their five power play opportunities in the game, and successfully killed all three of the Bulldogs’ power plays. “I think like any team, you are always working on special teams,” UW head coach Mark Johnson said. “It comes down to execution. Certainly the two power play goals were the difference in the game.” Success on special teams is nothing new for the Badgers; they boast the nation’s second-best power play scoring percentage and the thirdbest penalty-kill percentage. Redshirt junior forward Brittany Ammerman and junior forward Blayre Turnbull led the way for Wisconsin on offense, recording two points apiece. “We’re building a lot of good momentum, and the whole team has been contributing,” Ammerman said. Sophomore forward Rachel Jones also contributed to UW’s scoring effort, recording her second goal of the season. Senior forward Jamie Kenyon finally got Minnesota-Duluth (9-8-
5, 11-10-5) on the board with 4:28 left in the third period, but it was too little, too late for the Bulldogs. Sunday afternoon’s game, played before a large LaBahn Arena crowd, ended up being an exciting, physical contest. The Badgers’ offense seemed to be firing on all cylinders early in the game, outshooting the Bulldogs 19-5 in the first period. Despite several good scoring opportunities, UW was unable to find the back of the net until sophomore forward Erika Sowchuk scored a power play goal with just 1:17 remaining in the first period. Midway through the second period, UMD received a golden opportunity when they went on a five-minute power play, resulting from a game misconduct call and ejection on UW senior forward Madison Packer. But the Badgers penalty-killing unit and senior goaltender Alex Rigsby stood tall, preserving their one-goal lead heading into the second intermission. In the final period, the Badgers tallied an insurance goal to make it 2-0 with just over five minutes left, courtesy of freshman forward Sarah Nurse. Nurse scored an impressive goal by breaking away, deking a defender, and going to her backhand to beat sophomore goaltender Kayla Black. While there wasn’t much scoring in the game, the game certainly wasn’t without excitement. Both teams played a very physical game (highlighted by Packer’s
ejection) and combined for a total of 12 penalties for 35 penalty minutes. This put the Badgers, one of the country’s least penalized teams, in somewhat unfamiliar territory, but they still managed to find a way to win. “As I told the team, you play the game for a reason and you never know what’s going to happen within the game,” Johnson said. “It was a game that we haven’t seen in regards to the penalties and things that went on over the course of the 60 minutes, but I thought in a lot of situations we responded very well.” The main reason for the lack of scoring was the superb play from both teams’ goaltenders. For the Bulldogs, Black recorded 36 saves while allowing just two goals for a .947 save percentage. For Wisconsin, Rigsby made 17 saves en route to her 94th career win and 27th career shutout. “I think it was a huge victory for us today,” Rigsby said. “I thought our team came out and battled really hard this weekend, so it’s a great thing to walk away with.” With the series sweep, the Badgers improved to 13-1-0 at home on the season, but they had to put forth their best effort to win both games over their conference rival. “Our league is very competitive top to bottom. There are no easy nights and you have to play hard for 60 minutes,” Johnson said. “Those are good signs that each game we are finding ways to win and ways to get things done. Especially at this time of the season, it goes a long way.”
Why the world needs Richard Sherman BRETT BACHMAN ready, Brett, go
port, at its best, gives us a glimpse into the world as it could be. Pure. Beautiful. At its worst, and all too often, it reflects back at us the world as it is. Let’s recap the last few weeks for Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman. It started with a bit of postgame sportsmanship toward San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree. “Good game, hell of a game.” Then, there was the rant on national television: “I’m the best corner in the game.” The backlash began there. Then, according to Newton’s third law of viral videos, there was an equal and opposite reaction to that backlash. Sherman, it turns out, escaped from the streets of Compton as salutatorian of his graduating class, left Stanford partway to a master’s degree and is now a pro-bowl cornerback in the NFL. As if somehow his academic background means it was OK for him to talk, does that mean those without that background should remain silent? It wasn’t always the case that athletes were apolitical corporate property, afraid to go off script and lose valuable sponsorship money. The sporting arena is not a world of whitewashed purity, as we have been led to believe. Athletes have a long history of
being forces of societal change. After Sherman went rogue, I immediately wondered how the millennial generation would have reacted to Muhammad Ali’s “I am the greatest” speech. A lot of Sherman’s backlash is attributable to the individual aura built around the sport of football: conveniently ignore the inherent violence and the toll it takes on these athletes’ bodies, while discouraging any semblance of violence outside the confines of the NFL rulebook. Saturday night before the NFC Championship game, the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks of the NHL started a game with a team-on-team brawl. Not one second on the clock had expired and both teams were swinging away. Not a second thought was given to the incident or the angry interviews by representatives from both teams. It’s all about perception. In the coming days, Sherman stood by his principles and spoke his mind about the racist and classist undertones in which the incident was being discussed. Musicians, artists, actors, business leaders and other public figures are encouraged to be principled. Athletes are oftentimes shunned for having opinions. LeBron James, when he entered the league, had two goals: be a global icon, and be the richest athlete to walk the earth. These goals can supplement each other to an extent, but being a true, principled icon means not ignoring problems to retain money. When Sherman later sat in
a press conference and talked about the word “thug” and its usage in contemporary vernacular, he also endeared himself to many. CNN Money estimates the Seahawks’ cornerback stands to make $5 million after the rant brought him to notoriety. Athletes will never have the chance to shift cultural paradigms as long as this correlation between money and opinion exists. Sherman, in today’s Youtube clip driven world, has been given an image. That image, for the near future, is marketable. In the more distant future, strategic quotes and appearances can retain the success of his image as a marketing tool. Once he agrees to become a spokesperson for a brand, however, his image will be tied to millions of dollars. And when millions of dollars are on the line, there aren’t going to be chances to bring up the n-word, or do anything else to rock the boat. His voice will be effectively filtered to maintain profitablity. This leaves no platform to be a true harbinger of change. Jackie Robinson was willing to risk his life playing the game he loved in order to change history. Ali was willing to risk prison time. Sherman will simply have to forego a lot of money to be the same sort of political and cultural force. In today’s society, I just don’t see it happening. What are your thoughts on Richard Sherman’s postgame interview? Email babachman@ wisc.edu and let Brett know your thoughts.

Michala Johnson is averaging 15.6 points per game this season.
UW falls to Michigan By Chris Bates and Louisa Lincoln THE DAILY CARDINAL
“We’re obviously disappointed in our play today,” Wisconsin women’s basketball head coach Bobbie Kelsey said of the team’s 60-44 loss to Michigan Sunday afternoon at the Kohl Center. “Overall, I thought the kids played hard but it just wasn’t enough.” Coming off two tough conference losses on the road at Northwestern and Minnesota in just over a week, the Badgers (2-5 Big Ten, 9-10 overall) were looking to turn the season around back at home. However, the Wolverines (5-2, 14-6) had other ideas, holding the Badgers to a season-low 44 points. In a tight defensive first half, the Badgers struck first with redshirt junior forward Michala Johnson’s layup just seconds into the game. Soon after, Michigan went on an 11-0 run to put them up 15-6, but after a timeout by Kelsey, the Badgers went on a 7-0 run of their own to bring them within two points. Both teams played staunch defense, making the opposing offense work the entire shot clock to get a shot. The referees let the two teams play with only one foul called on each team in the first 10 minutes of the game. The Wolverines went up by as much as 10 in the first half, but sophomore guard Nicole Bauman brought the Badgers within five points heading into the break. After shooting just 10 percent from the 3-point arc in the first half, the Wisconsin offense came out strong in the first few minutes of the second half, hitting their first two 3-pointers to take a 31-29 lead. The Badgers’ lead was shortlived though, with freshman guard Siera Thompson scoring a 3-pointer for Michigan

just moments later, leaving Wisconsin trailing 35-36. According to Kelsey, the Badgers’ inability to get the ball in the net in those few minutes was what made the difference. “When you’re holding them you have got to score,” said Kelsey. “It’s twofold, it’s not just stop them. Nobody wins the game twoto-nothing, you’ve got to score.” Although the Badgers had many chances to score, the team couldn’t recover and take the lead back from the Wolverines for the rest of the game, struggling to get anything in the net for much of the second half. The Wolverines’ defense held the Badgers to just four points in the last eight minutes of the game making it hard to get any momentum for the home team. “We didn’t have quite the offensive punch we needed,” Kelsey said. “We’re missing a lot of those shots around the basket, like a lot of dink shots. People just have got to get in the gym and shoot more, and don’t just shoot the threes.” Michala Johnson had a gamehigh 15 points and her work in the paint was trouble for the Wolverines’ inside players. “I thought Johnson really did a good job this game of making some adjustments from last game,” Michigan head coach Kim Barnes Arico said. “She really showed a lot of improvement from [the last MichiganWisconsin matchup], she really rebounded offensively today and got our bigs in foul trouble.” Although the Badgers couldn’t walk away with a victory, their hard work did not go unnoticed by Arico, who believes Wisconsin is on the rise. “They play extremely hard and they don’t quit,” she said. “Every one of their games is really tight, and they are a tough team. They are getting better and better, and I feel like they’re turning the corner.”

UW ends skid at Purdue By Jack Baer
THE DAILY CARDINAL
COURTNEY KESSLER/CARDINAL FILE PHOTO
Sophomore forward Sam Dekker scored 15 points for Wisconsin when they beat Purdue and ended a three-game losing streak.
In the same state where their defense began to stumble, the Badgers were able to regain their footing and continue a very promising season. The Wisconsin men’s basketball team (4-3 Big Ten, 17-3 overall) snapped its three-game losing streak with a strong showing at Purdue (3-4, 13-7) in West Lafayette, Ind. beating the Boilermakers 72-58. The game started off very well for the Badgers, who jumped out to a 17-9 lead. They saw Purdue’s arguably most important player, 7-foot sophomore center A.J. Hammons quickly register two personal fouls. Hammons never really got going for the rest of the game, ending with two points in just 12 minutes played. Unfortunately, the Badgers saw their own 7-footer also get into foul trouble soon after, as junior center Frank Kaminsky received two fouls. Both fouls, a reach-in and a rebound over the back, were
questionable, as Kaminsky seemed to have proper position to reach for the ball. Kaminsky’s minute-preserving absence immediately sparked a 10-3 Purdue run, mirroring a similar run against Minnesota last Wednesday. The game’s pace also slowed to a crawl due to this sensitive whistle from the referees, especially in the paint, as Kaminsky, redshirt junior center Evan Anderson, and freshman forward Nigel Hayes all finished the first half with two fouls each. The frontcourt’s inability to emphasize contact caused the offense to periodically stagnate, and allowed the Boilermakers to slowly crawl back. Overall, the half ended with the Badgers holding a 32-29 lead, and both teams combining for 22 personal fouls. The second half began similarly to the first, with Wisconsin going on a 9-2 run to attain a lead that wouldn’t be significantly threatened for the rest of the night. Sophomore forward Sam
Dekker shined on offense in this span, repeatedly driving at the basket and drawing fouls. After 10 minutes of coasting, Wisconsin captured an immensely-needed win and headed to the locker room victorious. The Badgers’ defense finally returned for a game, holding the Boilermakers to just 23-for65 shooting (35.4 percent). Fans can only hope that this will mark a defensive return to form for head coach Bo Ryan’s team, and not just a blip on the radar of weaknesses exposed by Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. On offense, the Badgers’ free throw shooting was the story, finishing the game 27-for-33 (81.8 percent) from the charity stripe. This saved the team from an off night from the field, where they were 19-for-46 (41.3 percent). Redshirt junior forward Duje Dukan saw only one minute of playing time, continuing a trend of diminishing minutes. The Badgers will hope to put their losing streak fully behind them with a home game against Northwestern next Wednesday.
Wisconsin splits inaugural series against the Buckeyes By Adee Feiner THE DAILY CARDINAL
The nature of this past weekend’s series between Wisconsin and Ohio State mimicked that of a long-standing rivalry, not one that met on the ice for the first time ever. The Wisconsin men’s hockey team (5-3-0 Big Ten, 14-7-1 overall) hosted the Buckeyes (2-5-1, 12-9-1) in Madison and split the two games, winning 5-3 Friday night before falling 3-1 Saturday in front of the largest crowd thus far in the season. Junior defenseman Jake McCabe kicked off scoring for the Badgers Friday shortly after the first period got underway. The Hobey Baker candidate shot the puck in front of the net on a wraparound and went five-hole, beating Buckeye freshman goaltender Matt Tomkins. About five minutes later, Ohio State junior forward Nick Oddo received a five-minute major and game misconduct for a check from behind on Wisconsin senior forward Jefferson Dahl and was ejected from the game. However, the Badgers’ power play woes continued. After they were unable to capitalize on the man advantage, junior left winger Matt Paape went to the box for holding, which resulted in Ohio State getting the equalizer from junior left winger Ryan Dzingel. The teams headed into the second period tied at 1-1, but it was Ohio State that broke through just past the halfway mark, earning their second power play goal of the night from freshman right wing Nick Schilkey. The Badgers answered with two more goals from redshirt freshman left winger Morgan Zulinick and senior right winger Tyler Barnes, who finished the
night with three points. Senior center Mark Zengerle assisted both goals and now leads the league with 21. “[Zengerle] battles down low and he can find guys, too,” Zulinick said after the game. When I play with a guy like that, I just have to get open and he’ll find me.” Wisconsin extended its lead in the third period on a quick goal by senior defenseman Joe Faust from McCabe and Barnes. Ohio State earned one more tally on a shorthanded goal by freshman left winger David Gust, who beat junior goaltender Joel Rumpel. But Wisconsin freshman forward Jedd Soleway finally managed to make good use of a power play and earned his first goal as a Badger sealing the 5-3 victory. “In the first period, our concern was to get ourselves going after we had two weeks off,” head coach Mike Eaves said.“We weren’t connecting dots, we weren’t catching the puck and we weren’t used to the pace and the battling. But because we didn’t panic and because we had the maturity level, I think that eventually led to us staying on top of it and getting our game going.” Saturday night brought a crowd of 15,021, the most since 2010, and a “whiteout” throughout the Kohl Center. The game pace didn’t slow down from the night before, as both teams came out aggressive on the forecheck and racking up penalties, for a first period total of 16 minutes. Unfortunately for the Badgers, the theme of the night seemed to be missed opportunities as none of their scoring chances could find the back of the net. After once again failing to convert on
NITHIN CHARLLY/THE DAILY CARDINAL
Junior defenseman Jake McCabe started off the scoring for Wisconsin this weekend. the man advantage, it seemed Wisconsin junior left wing Brad Navin had gotten the Badgers on the board first on a wraparound attempt. However, after the officials waved the goal off on the ice and went to video review, it was clear that the puck slid across the mouth of the goal and never actually crossed the line. After ample opportunities for both teams on the power play, the first period ended with no score from either side. Halfway through the second period the Badgers managed to light the lamp on a goal from Zengerle assisted by senior defenseman and captain Frankie Simonelli. Celebrations were short lived, however, when just over a minute and a half later, OSU right
wing Nick Schilkey went topshelf on a backhand shot for his second goal of the series, besting Rumpel, who was in goal for a second night in a row. With five minutes left to go in the period, Oddo found the puck in front of the net following a scrum and gave Ohio State the lead at 2-1. There certainly was no lack of trying from the Badgers as they had plenty of chances to tie the game, but a mixture of sharp goaltending and strong defensive play from Ohio State stymied the Badger offense. Perhaps the best opportunity came from Zengerle who had a 2-on-1 break with Zulinick. Zengerle chose to shoot the puck and in a matter of mere inches, his shot rang hard of
the post. “My post, I mean, there’s so many other chances we had,” Zengerle said postgame. “Give a little kudos to the [OSU] goalie, I guess. But at the same time we made some really nice plays… the chances were there.” The third period was a backand-forth battle between the Big Ten rivals, but an empty net goal from OSU junior forward Darik Angeli would cap the 3-1 victory. Saturday night was the first time since Nov. 30 that the Badgers have lost to a conference foe since being bested by Minnesota. Wisconsin ended its 12-game homestand with a 10-2-0 record. Big Ten hockey continues as the Badgers travel to Michigan next week to take on the Wolverines.
