System boasts high retention, graduation By Tamar Myers the daily cardinal

The Board of Regents will hear a presentation of the annual University of Wisconsin System Accountability Report Thursday, which shows second-year retention and six-year graduation rates in the University of Wisconsin System both exceed national averages. However, underrepresented minorities and Pell Grant recipients still fall behind. The accountability report outlines goal areas where the system has worked to improve, based on a framework spearheaded by UW System President Kevin Reilly. One of these areas is the number of students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree within six years. The 59.6 percent six-year graduation rate of 2006 freshmen beat out the national average of 56.6 percent. In terms of second-year retention, 80.2 percent of freshmen continue onto a second year at the same institution, which is higher

than the national average of 79.3 percent. This is on target to meet the system’s goal of 80.4 percent retention, the report said. With both six-year graduation rates and second-year retention, underrepresented minorities and low income Pell Grant recipients lag behind. The system hopes by 2015 to slash equity gaps to half of their baseline cohorts, the rates from 1998-2000. Gaps in both second-year retention and six-year graduation slightly increased among students receiving need-based Pell Grants. While the number of non-Pell Grant recipients graduating in six years increased, the rate of Pell Grant recipients has remained stagnant. The gaps between second-year retention of underrepresented minority students and the number graduating within six years decreased slightly, compared to the baseline cohorts. However, according to the

Ron Kind helping draft bill to reopen government By Ben Rangel the daily cardinal

courtney kessler/the daily cardinal

Mayor Paul Soglin said a prolonged federal government shutdown could negatively impact UW research grants.

Shutdown could cut UW research grants Madison Mayor Paul Soglin addressed the impact of the federal government shutdown on city residents and University of WisconsinMadison students at a press conference Wednesday. “As of this week, we do not have any critical services that are compromised,” Soglin said. However, Congress remains at a standstill disagreement as the shutdown plows through its second week, and Soglin said although local effects have been minimal so far, the shutdown could have more significant consequences on the Madison community if it continues. “What’s going on right now is really unheard of,” Soglin said. “We have to start preparing as best we can for difficulties.” Although Soglin did not offer specific figures, he said

the immediate lack of federal funding for research grants in the event of a prolonged idle Congress will force UW-Madison students to compromise their scientific work that has been months or even years in the making. In addition, the future of the Women, Infants and Children program, a food supplementary organization for many Madison residents, also faces deeper budget cuts if Congress does not find a resolution in the immediate future, Soglin said. Soglin added he has little patience for those that triggered the shutdown. “Whether they intended or not, the perpetrators of this are having the effect of terrorists in their greatest hope of shutting down the United States government,” Soglin said. ­— Irene Burski

As the government shutdown reaches its second week and Congress’ inability to compromise continues to keep roughly 800,000 federal workers furloughed, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D– Wis., is working with U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent, R–Pa., to draft a bipartisan bill that would temporarily reopen the government. The bill would eliminate the Affordable Care Act’s controversial tax on medical devices in exchange for the passing of a budget. Kind said in a statement he believes bipartisan momentum is growing and that he and Dent came together to “agree on a course of action.” Every year on Sept. 30 Congress has the constitutional responsibility to pass a federal budget. Failure to agree on a budget by Oct. 1 results in the shutdown of many non-essential aspects of the government. While negotiating the budget bill, Republicans pushed for the repeal of certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act before they would pass a budget bill, but Democrats would not accept any movement on the ACA, leading to a failure to compromise and the ongoing shutdown. Kind and Dent agree on an aspect of the bill that should be removed and are gaining bipartisan support. Peter Knudsen, Kind’s press secretary, said in an email Kind proposed the bill because members of the House, “need to walk before [they] run by having bipartisan conversations to build trust.” Other Wisconsin representatives, including Sean Duffy, R-Wis., and Reid Ribble, R-Wis., also gave indications they are willing to compromise. Duffy said in a statement he

The University of WisconsinMadison Athletic Department will distribute $5 gift cards to student ticket holders at the Northwestern football game Saturday, according to Associate Athletic Director for External Relations Justin Doherty. The department also mailed out $10 vouchers to non-student account holders with season tickets in the seating bowl. With approxi-

mately 14,000 ticket holders, the cost will be around $140,000, excluding the student vouchers. This comes after a shortage of vendors at the University of Massachusetts game Aug. 31, where fans reported a variety of problems, such as long lines, a shortage of food and dissatisfaction over beverage choices. Doherty said the Athletic

Department decided to distribute gift cards as a personal appreciation to fans and to encourage attendees to try some of the offerings available through the new concession provider, Learfield Levy Foodservice LLC. Students can pick up the vouchers up until 2 p.m. at the student entrance gate by exchanging their ticket for a gift card.

“…the great state University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.”

ll you health food junkies, environmentalists, activists against obesity, et al ., need to stfu. McDonald’s is a blessing. If you don’t appreciate it, there is something broken in your head (probably because you’ve been too busy nibbling on kale and cat food instead of a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese like a real American).

So go. GO RIGHT NOW and get some McDonald’s. This past weekend I ate McDonald’s for three meals in a row.1 FOR THREE EFFING MEALS STRAIGHT I DOWNED MICKEY D’S!!!!! AND THOSE WERE THE BEST TWO DAYS OF MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!! My favorite combination of items is a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets meal (with honey, aka “the secret sauce,”2 on the side and a medium Sprite), a Big Mac and a Filet-O-Fish. It’s the best meal on Earth. I hate you if you don’t agree. Here’s the proof regarding why McDonald’s may objectively

Deer Cardinal, I’m taking a 600-level history seminar, and I feel like I’m in over my head. The class is discussion based, and I’m worried I sound like a total idiot. Plus, there are some grad students in the class, and they know a lot more about the subject than I do. What should I do? —Irwin F.

be the greatest restaurant ever: Exhibit A: It’s the tastiest. Have you ever had the desire to do something like eat a whole stick of butter by itself, or down a full jar of Maraschino cherries? I thought so. And every time I eat McDonald’s, for me, it’s exactly how I imagine either of those other two experiences feel. I’m not stupide. I know McDonald’s isn’t healthy or whatever according to that dumb food pyramid thing. But I don’t care. I’m eating it because it’s delicious to the highest power, not because it’s good for me; yolo. Exhibit B: It’s the cheapest. I dare you to bring me a meal that will cost less than what I can get at McDonald’s. What’s that? You can’t purchase nine sandwiches with a 10-dollar bill at your silly organic, locally grown, hole-in-the-wall-pesticide-freefood joint just east of the Capitol? I DIDN’T THINK SO. I want maximum calories for minimum Rubles. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. Exhibit C: It’s the fastest. A few days ago I got my signature 10.P.C.M.N.M.B.M.F.O.F, and it LITERALLY took two minutes for me to get my food after ordering it. For a sec. now, consider the amount of time you’ve wasted sitting down to eat at some semi-swanky place (or even some place you don’t actually want to be, like Applebee’s or TGI Fridays or, God forbid, an Outback Steakhouse).3 Stop wasting your time. Eat at McDonald’s. Live fast. Die young. Mmmm, mmmmm.

out of your ungrateful mouth, immediately reevaluate and/or drastically change your life.4 So go. GO RIGHT NOW and get some McDonald’s. Hit the drive-thru, go home and rip into that sack of savory Thiamine Mononitrate and Azodicarbonamide. Let the animal fat run down your blood-thirsty face and excrete from your loose pores as your abnormal hormone levels cause you to convulse with utter joy and screech with the tenacity of a rabid fruit bat. THAT, my friends, is heaven. I implore you to go grab a bite. There’s a 24-hour Mac Don’s on Regent Street.5 Do it. Stuff your face. I’m lovin’ it, and so can you! ;) Has Andy sold you on McDonald’s? Email him at andy@ holsteens.com to talk about meeting up at the drive-thru.

You need to get your priorities straight if you have anything bad to say about McDonald’s. THERE IS NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT!!!!! IT IS PERFECT DINING!!!!! If the phrases, “I can’t stand McDonald’s,” “I haven’t been to that place in years,” “That place is poisonous,” “I can’t even watch you eat that” or “How can you eat that stuff?” ever come

ENDNOTES 1) I am most definitely qualified to comment on this subject. 2) Not to be confused with “Special Sauce,” which is the Thousand Island-esque concoction delightfully squirted onto every Big Mac masterpiece. 3) Hands down the worst food establishment in the U.S.a 4) Strictly to avoid legal repercussions, Andy Holsteen does not actually encourage or compel you to act in any particular way. 5) I am in no way involved or affiliated with McDonald’s Corp.

ADVICE BIRD

THIS WEEK - Staying ahead in a seminar - Clear directions for navigating the Humanities Building

Inadequate Irwin, Have a little confidence, dude! A wise bird once told me, “Fake it till you make it.” What did he mean by that? Pretend like you know what you’re doing, even if you’re totally lost and have no clue what’s going on. The first key to success in a class like this is making sure you sound smart. Try to pepper in the phrase “vis a vis” as well as the words “plethora” and “inherently” whenever possible. It’s OK if you’re not sure what these words really mean. Context isn’t important. If you get choked up, gesture with one hand while scowling pensively. Also, never ask a question you don’t already know the answer to. Speaking of your appear-

ance, along with sounding smart, you also want to look smart. So, whenever the professor mentions a noteworthy person, place or event, nod your head slowly, as if to say, “Ah, yes! I know everything! Thank you for reminding me to remind you of that.” Knock ’em dead, champ!

Deer Cardinal, I have a club meeting on the second floor of the Humanities Building once a week this year. I don’t spend much time in there otherwise, so I often get lost in the building. Any tips for helping me find my way around? —Lilly M. Lost Lilly, Navigating the Humanities Building can be tricky. Let me see if I can help clear things up. When you enter the building, which floor are you on? In case you don’t know, perhaps I can help you figure it out. If you enter on the first level on Park Street, you’re on the second floor, unless you go up the stairs at the corner of Park and University, in which case you’re on the third floor. Or, if you come over the bridge con-

necting to the fourth floor of Vilas, in which case you’re on the third floor. Alright, now that you’ve got a good grasp on where you’re entering the building, time to make a note of where exactly your classroom is. How many concrete pillars do you pass on your way to the classroom? Is there a particular musical ensemble that has practice during your club meeting? Can you see sunlight from the room? If you said “yes” to that last one, definitely make note because there aren’t many other locations in there where you get that luxury. If all else fails, just keep lapping the building until you run into someone you know. Getting out is pretty easy. Some of the second-floor exits are at street level, except the one on State Street, which is upstairs from the street. Hopefully this clears things up! Feel free to send more questions if my directions were unclear or if you keep having trouble finding the room.

For answers to your questions, tweet at the Deer Cardinal. Literally.

System president salary may increase

Courtesy of city of madison Legislative information center

The Library Mall redesign, to be completed by 2017, calls for increased lighting, shared bicycle and pedestrian throughways, and aims to preserve the landscape’s history.

City aims to preserve Library Mall history A city committee overseeing the redesign of State Street met Wednesday to discuss the reconstruction of the 700 and 800 blocks, as well as ways to enrich the “Library Mall experience.” The committee was primarily concerned with the confluence of the 700 and 800 block infrastructure, as well as maintaining the historic value of Library Mall. As one member explained, the project aims to “penetrate into the sense of State Street” and encourages “overlapping” between elements of the campus and the city. However, committee mem-

bers expressed concerns that the heavily trafficked area could be negatively affected by the five-year timeline of the project. As community member Rosemary Lee explained, “people will come and go” from the university within its duration. The plan involves several infrastructural and policy adjustments, including legalizing bicycle riding and parking through the corridor, adding street lighting and public seating as well as allowing street vendors, all while staying “in tune with the historic nature” of the area. Artist Jill Sebastian also presented her idea for a pub-

lic artwork installation, a sugar maple leaf as large as the surrounding trees, and lit to match the changing seasons. Sebastian said the idea “ties together town and gown” in that it incorporates the Wisconsin state tree, the bronze leaf “icon” of State Street and the foliage in the architecture of certain university buildings. Overall, the committee was excited for the anticipated impact of the project on the State Street experience. Various city committees will vote on the design before it goes to the city Council for final approval. —Gillian McBride

The next University of Wisconsin System President could see an increase in salary under a proposal the Board of Regents is considering. Currently, the Regents pay new top administrators under a range based on the midpoint salaries of others in similar jobs at comparable institutions nationally. They are able to pay new hires between 90 and 110 percent of the calculated midpoint. “This algorithm creates too narrow a range, limiting competitiveness with peer institutions and discretion to set salaries appropriate to individual circum-

stances,” the proposal states. If approved, the new policy would widen the range to between 80 and 120 percent of the median salary. The proposal also calls for reviewing and adjusting those ranges every two years. Outgoing System president Kevin Reilly currently earns $414,000 annually. Under the proposal, other top administrators, such as the new UW-Madison provost to replace Paul DeLuca, could see dramatic pay increases as well. The Regents will vote on the proposal at a meeting Thursday.

Committee passes bill targeting underage bar patrons A state senate committee passed a bill Wednesday that would allow bar owners and alcohol retailers to file $1,000 lawsuits against underage patrons who are caught purchasing alcohol in their establishment. The Senate Agriculture, Small Business and Tourism Committee approved the bill, which state Rep. André Jacque, R-De Pere,

introduced in an assembly committee in March. Current state law says underage people who intentionally defraud alcohol retailers, with a fake ID or otherwise, face a potential fine between $250 and $1,000, according to an analysis by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau. Under the bill, known as the Brown Jug Bill, the $1,000 lawsuit

and legal fees associated with the proceeding would be an additional cost to a $130 drinking fine as well as a $600 fine for any patron caught using a fake ID. If the individual is under 18-years-old, the bar could bring the lawsuit against the person’s parents or legal guardians. The bill is expected to go before the full Assembly next week.

Kind and Dent last week. Kind said in a statement the bipartisan group plans to move forward with discussions in the coming days.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank outlined ideas to move the university forward in a speech Wednesday that launched the Fall 2013 University Roundtable Series. The talk highlighted the same topics as the State of the University speech she addressed to Faculty Senate Monday. Blank charted priorities that included creating collaborative research networks, contributing to the state and working toward financial stability. Blank said her highest priority is to rectify a compensation issue she is “embarrassed by,” where a centralized human resources system has led to some staff receiving salaries lower than living wage. Although changes to give her more control of compensation could take years to institute, she said she plans to establish a Critical Compensation Fund like one that existed last year in order to raise certain salaries. Blank said she is excited

“remains hopeful” that an agreement can be reached, but said he “at the very least” would like to

delay Obamacare. Ribble, who called the shutdown “harmful and embarrassing” in a statement, is part of the bipartisan group that met with

about emerging changes in the delivery of education such as the Massive Open Online Courses the university recently launched. Blank said she would like to secure funding for a Center for Educational Innovation, which would lead the way on training instructors to utilize new teaching techniques and would also spearhead research and evaluation of new ideas. “We know too little about what works and what doesn’t work,” Blank said. “There’s a lot of rhetoric out there without very many experimental results.” To wrap up the speech, Blank countered those who see her role as trying to “fix” UW-Madison. “That’s exactly the wrong approach,” Blank said. “What you want to do is find out what’s great about the place and build on that. If you want things to improve you can leverage off what’s already excellent.” —Tamar Myers

Corn mazes and pumpkin patches Schuster’s Playtime Farm For how much you can feel like a child at Schuster’s Playtime Farm, its corn maze is alarmingly age-appropriate for the young 20-something, college-aged person. The corn maze this year, intricately and deliberately carved into Wisconsin football head coach Gary Andersen holding a football, will trip up even the best of maze sleuths. At some point after making wrong turn after turn with extreme feelings of disorientation, every choice you make will feel like one of life or death. They provide you with trivia questions to help you make turns at forks, but only rely on them occasionally, as some of the answers appeared to be quite innacurate. (Example: What’s the minimum age requirement to run for the U.S. presidency? A: 20 years; B: 30 years; C: 40 years. It’s 35.) Other activities: Haunted Forest (Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 26), pumpkin patch, hay rides, barnyard animals Pricce: $6 for just the maze, $8.50 for farm entry, (including other “farmtivities”), $15 for Haunted Forest When: Open until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 6 p.m. Sundays through Oct. 31 Where: 1326 Hwy. 12 & 18, Deerfield

Would you prefer to hear ghost stories people really believe in, instead of fabricated ones? Are you a Madison history buff? Then you might enjoy a Madison Ghost Walks tour. It starts at the Capitol building, where you’ll learn about mysterious happenings in the South Wing of the fourth floor, where, since the Capitol’s roof collapsed in the 1880s, people have heard footsteps down the hall, seen doors close with nobody around and reported feelings of being watched. You’ll make your way to other sites near the square, such as The Frequency, Great Dane Pub, the American Exchange Bank Building and the Orpheum, to name a few. Mike Huberty, the founder of the tour, said all the stories were compiled after interviews with people who work in each site. “We haven’t made any of these stories up,” Huberty said. “It’s not just entertainment, it’s folklore.” When: Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 to 9 p.m. through Nov. 2. Private tours can be set up with six or more people at other times. Cost: $15 Where: In the Capitol neighborhood

Film can be art outside the big screen AUSTIN WELLENS All’s well-ens well

S

o I saw “Gravity” over the weekend. More importantly, I saw “Gravity” in IMAX 3D and in about the third row. So yeah, I can only highly recommend it. It was an unbelievable experience. But as much as I enjoyed it, I couldn’t help but wonder: Would I have enjoyed it as much had I been watching it on my laptop, phone or just on TV? Which led me to think: Is “Gravity” really that good? If I have to be watching it in a specific way, in a specific place, then is it really a great artistic accomplishment? Or are these extra-textual embellishments covering some fundamental flaws of the film? The answers, in order, are yes and no. Yes, “Gravity” is still an amazing film and no, the venue you choose to watch a film has nothing

to do with the actual quality of the film. Which is to say, it depends on what the film wants to be, what the filmmaker is trying to accomplish and ultimately, how much you as an audience member value your viewing experience. With people gaining the ability to watch films on their smartphones and computers and all the other fun, Brave New World-y type stuff, many alarmists have been going off about how it’ll be the death of art, how we’re losing our appreciation for “art in person” and just generally being luddites and lame-os. Now is there still value to seeing films in theaters? Definitely. But making this choice isn’t innately better than watching it however else you might like to, and since now we can make this choice, it means more and more, film production and consumption are becoming increasingly democratic and dialogic in nature. In the case of “Gravity,”

Alfonso Cuarón was making a movie for the big screen. Plain and simple. He set out with the goal of producing a film that works best and is most effective when viewed in a theater. And he succeeded. He created one of the most powerful theatergoing experiences I’ve had. In this case, and in other cases, the exhibition becomes a part of the art form and this idea is only possible because of how many venues we have available to us now. For the majority of film history, theaters were the only place to see movies. Level playing field, nothing was being said by the choice, because there wasn’t a choice. Now, thanks to the fact that filmmakers are able to produce for small screens, filmmakers have a choice. The ability to add dimension to their work by tailoring it to certain spaces ultimately puts more power in the hands of the artist: They can create a casual or even more intimate piece that is served by personal

or home viewing, or like Cuarón, seek the majestic and aim to strike awe on the big screen. These are factors that Stanley Kubrick never had to think about, but they’re ultimately empowering. It’s another way for artists to make the art they want. More than that, it gives us as an audience the power to determine our own viewership in a way we haven’t befor and affords us a way to communicate with the filmmaker. By choosing to see “Gravity” in a theater, you both validate Cuaron’s decision to plan for that scale, and agree to engage his work on his terms. However, if it isn’t convenient for you, or you decide it isn’t worth it to you to make the effort, you can also watch it in whatever other ways you’d like, eventually. In making these choices, we decide whether or not to totally commit ourselves to whatever work we’re watching and get to decide on what level we want to be involved with the film. Going to see “Gravity” the way I did put me deep into

the film’s experience, which was incredibly rewarding and the right decision, because I went into it looking to get that much out of it. Other people might not. For them, seeing it on an iPhone might be able to get them what they want from it. Neither way is better than the other. It all depends on what you’re looking for, what the filmmaker was looking to do and how well the two sync up. And, as “Gravity” demonstrates, when they do, the results can be breathtaking. For those of you looking for amazing in-theater experiences beyond “Gravity” (which you really, really need to see the way it’s intended—it’s so worth it), WUD Film will be showing my favorite movie, “Upstream Color,” next Thursday and Friday at the Marquee. So definitely get to that if you want to be cool. Do you think all those whippersnappers with their phones are ruining art? Wave your digital cane at Austin, email wellens@wisc.edu.

THE RECORD ROUTINE

Forever Becoming Pelican By Jordan McEvoy THE DAILY CARDINAL

Before listening to Pelican’s Forever Becoming, I braced myself. Identifying themselves as post-metal, a genre I have never particularly enjoyed, I expected predictable riffs, harsh bass, and noise percussion. Holy shit, was I wrong. Four years since the release of their last album, Pelican has evolved into a pure, more focused, instrumental rock band. Forever Becoming contains only eight tracks, but they are enough to convey an onslaught of emotions. It’s best to view the album as a whole, rather than track by track, because what Pelican has done is compose a story of life and death. Track one, “The Cliff,” creates a soft melodic, then tumultuous buildup as the unnamed individual reaches a breaking point and takes

the plunge. The beginning to middle of the song is something similar to a more bassy Explosions in the Sky, with the bass giving the piece an edge. Next, “Deny the Absolute” picks up the pace, as a struggle between what’s real and what’s imaginary is envisioned. Warring with fate, the melody becomes more hectic and unpredictable—the bass more throaty. With “Immutable Dusk,” catchy riffs are rampant as destiny is reflected upon and ultimately accepted. Like any story, however, the ending is best left untold. Overall, Forever Becoming is partly a meditative masterpiece and partly a frantic cry for help. Cycling between life and death, the album is a continuum that unearths despair, reprieve and peace. The greatest thing about the album other than its riveting instrumentals and narrative is its simple uniqueness. While most fans dub Pelican in the subgenre of post-metal, I venture that they lean more toward atmospheric rock or post-rock. At times tumultuous, but otherwise calming. The album itself is cloudy with a chance of thunderstorms.

opinion Tea Party’s platform hurts our system l

6

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Alex Holland opinion columnist

O

ver the last several days, opinionated editorial sections across the country have been filled with advocates for compromise and bipartisanship over the mess Washington finds itself in. Major national newspapers have focused on the failures of Congress and the infighting between and within political parties. This lineage of argumentation misses the entire reason we are where we are. The current situation, the government shutdown and looming default, is not the failure of Congress or Congressional Democrats. The situation before the country rests solely on the back of Tea Party Republicans and a failure of leadership and political courage from House GOP leadership. House Republicans thought they were very clever to sit at a table waiting for Senate Democrats to go

to conference so that they could hash out their respective differences. I find this laughable, but also disturbing. The entire summer, Senate Democrats tried to go to conference to work toward a long-term budget so this mess could be avoided, but the likes of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Tea Party Republicans refused to do so out of fear that conference would mean the GOP would have to compromise. “Compromise,” what a dirty word… House Republicans are so scared of compromise that they even changed the House rules so that only Republicans can make a motion for a vote on clean continuing resolution. What is even more telling is that Democrats have made concessions, specifically on annual discretionary spending limits while the GOP has not moved the slightest inch. The 2014 Senate Budget set discretionary spending at a little under $1.06 trillion while Rep. Paul Ryan’s, R-Wis., 2014 budget set that total to $967

billion. The continuing resolution Democrats have passed in the Senate sets discretionary spending for 2014 at $986 billion.

President Obama and Senate Democrats must continue to stand strong against an extremist and out-of-touch approach to government.

That is a reduction of almost 7 percent from the Democrats original mark. The $986 billion is an 18 percent reduction from the spending the original Obama budget called for. This is a fact that the mainstream, “liberal” media has failed to report. This compromise is dangerous to a country that so desperately needs to invest in itself. To say the president and Senate Democrats have refused to negotiate is, as Vice President Joe Biden

dailycardinal.com

would say, “a bunch of malarkey.” Democrats have never said they won’t pass a clean continuing resolution or raise the debt ceiling with equal budget savings. Only extreme right Republicans have. Tea Party Republicans came to D.C. in 2010 on the sole purpose to shut down the government and to reduce the size of government at any means necessary, even if that meant shutting down the government and destroying U.S. credit. Tea Party Republicans have little or no remorse for what devastation their actions have had on middle class Americans. Just look to Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Tex., who told a National Park Service ranger she should be ashamed of herself for not allowing World War II veterans to see the memorial. Well shame on Neugebauer and his party! It is his party’s unwillingness to negotiate and accept discretionary spending concessions that caused those veterans to be blocked from the memorial.

There is a way out of this whole mess. House Speaker John Boehner could put the continuing resolution that Senate Democrats have passed, which puts discretionary spending almost identical to the Ryan budget, on the House Floor. Just like Hurricane Sandy disaster relief and the Violence Against Women Act, there is enough support in the House. Instead of fighting child poverty in America or passing a bipartisan immigration bill, issues that will greatly improve the livelihood of all Americans, Boehner caters to Tea Party Republicans. These Republicans have realized that they can’t have their way and just like a toddler, they are throwing a temper tantrum. Well enough is enough; President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats must continue to stand strong against an extremist and out-of-touch approach to government.

Iran’s new leadership makes US cautiously optimistic Ryan Bullen opinion columnist

T

alk is just that: talk.  Much has been said about Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani since his public debut at the United Nations last week. Since Rouhani’s election over former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he has been celebrated as a moderate president who could possibly be open to improving relations with the West and Israel. Others are hesitant to believe Rouhani’s milder approach and stress that his moderate views can be seen as a mask for a dangerous nation. Unfortunately, I believe the latter is true. Rouhani’s recent comments have been received with a fair amount of optimism by the international community because he openly calls for improvements in relations between Iran and

the United States. In an opinionated editorial that was published by The Washington Post, Rouhani wrote, “We must work together to end the unhealthy rivalries and interferences that fuel violence and drive us apart... Rather than focusing on how to prevent things from getting worse, we need to think— and talk—about how to make things better.” In a speech at the United Nations, he continued by saying America was a “great nation” and that Iran desires to “stop the escalation of tensions, and then defuse those tensions.” Rouhani even turned heads by calling the “supposed” Holocaust “reprehensible” and “condemnable,” still while never admitting to the Holocaust’s existence. This of course is an enormous difference from his predecessor who openly denied the Holocaust’s existence. I guess at this point you take what you can get. Since the Iranian Revolution

of 1979, Iran has been under the rule of Muslim clerics known as Imams or Ayatollahs. These Imams have shown continuous disrespect and hatred toward the United States mainly due to our support of the former regime under Shah Pahlavi, various military conflicts and arms dealing in the Middle East, as well as our stance as a major ally of Israel. In fact, the phone call that President Barack Obama had with Rouhani was the first direct contact between the two governments since 1979.  Iran has also continuously been developing a nuclear program much against the wishes and heavy sanctions passed down by the United Nations. Iran has taken a strong public stance that the nuclear program is strictly for energy use and entirely peaceful. It is unclear how long it would take for the Iranians to develop weaponsgrade Uranium, vital for creat-

ing a nuclear warhead. The one clear fact on the matter is if Iran comes into possession of a nuclear weapon, Iran’s threats against Israel and status as an international security threat gain legitimacy. 

President Obama must continue to show strength and show diplomatic intellect towards Iranian leadership.

The presence of these previous unresolved issues are exactly why it is so intriguing to hear an Iranian president sound so cooperative. Is this truly a change of heart by the Iranian leadership in order to smooth relations between Iran and the West, or is this all a smoke-and-mirrors trick into

believing that Iran is a rational enough state to posses a nuclear weapon? The United States should proceed with a policy that former president Ronald Reagan made famous through the slogan of, “Trust, but verify.” Our government should view the words of Rouhani as a definite improvement in relations and a step in the right direction for future negotiations. However, we need to assure that if the Iranians wish to ever obtain a nuclear weapon, they must prove to act as rationally with them as the rest of the nuclear-armed states.  Is Rouhani a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”? Or is this truly a positive act of diplomacy by the Iranian regime? Time will ultimately tell, however President Obama must continue to show strength and show diplomatic intellect toward Iranian leadership. Please send all feedback to opinion@dailycardinal.com.

Letter To The Editor

‘She’s the First’ empowers women in the developing world through giving the gift of education By Jenna Bushnell She’s the first

You’re probably well aware that today marks the beginning of Homecoming weekend—yet another opportunity to celebrate our world-renown University and all it has to offer. But what you may not know about today is that it is also the United Nation’s International Day of The Girl. While it may not seem like these two events have much in common, they do. They both laud the value of education, but do so in different ways. Anyone who goes or went to the University of WisconsinMadison is well aware of the benefits of getting an education at an excellent school. That, as we Badgers know, is good as any reason to celebrate. But for the millions of girls the U.N.

is recognizing during their International Day of the Girl, an education—even a primary one—is out of the question. For example, last Wednesday, Oct. 9, marked the one-year anniversary of the attempted murder of a 15-yearold Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai. Taliban assassins gunned her down while she was riding home on her school bus. The reason? She had advocated for women’s rights. Fortunately, she survived and has spent the majority of this last year continuing to advocate for girls’ rights internationally, despite the intense adversity she faces. Yousafzai’s fearlessness demonstrates just how meaningful an education can be. According to an EFA Global Monitoring Report, more than

66 million girls are out of school, a problem that is most evident in developing nations. Instead of going to schools, girls in developing nations are often forced to work at a young age or become child brides. In fact, in the time it takes you to finish this paragraph, roughly 13 girls under the age of 18 have been forced to marry. These conditions lead to more instances of rape, sex trafficking, genital mutilation and death during pregnancy, among many other problems. While these facts may seem devastating, there is hope. It has been proven time and again that educating a girl through secondary school opens up countless doors for them. According a study by Barbara Mensch, Susheela Singh and John Casterline, girls who have been in

school for eight years or more are four times less likely to become child brides. Additionally, literate mothers are 50 percent more likely to have children that survive past 5 years old, according to UNESCO. Not convinced? Let money do the talking: The World Bank has reported that for every additional year of education, a girl can earn 20 percent more money during adulthood. The UN contends if 1 percent more of girls in India enrolled in secondary school, the country’s GDP would increase by $5.5 billion. Our organization, She’s the First, recognizes that an education is a marvelous, empowering thing. That’s why our chapter believes Homecoming and the International Day of the Girl can and should be celebrated together this year.

So, sometime in between watching the Homecoming parade, singing Varsity with your friends, and celebrating another Wisconsin win, take a moment to reflect on your time at UW-Madison and what it took to get here. Because, in the end, we can all appreciate the value of a great education. She’s the First is dedicated to helping girls in the developing world become the first in their families to graduate from secondary school. She’s the First is an organization promoting education for women around the globe.

Football

Badger defense aims to tame Wildcats By Adee Feiner the daily cardinal

Rested legs, relaxed minds and a laid-back weekend. These are all characteristics of a football bye week. And now that the Badgers (1-1 Big Ten, 3-2 overall) have put their bye week behind them, the task ahead is focusing on an incoming No. 19 Northwestern team (0-1, 4-1). The Wildcats use a twoquarterback system, something defensive coordinator Dave Aranda admits he hasn’t seen often in his career. “They get you concerned when they’re both out on the field at the same time,” Aranda said. “It’s in terms of not only being a potential receiver, but a passer too.” Despite a close loss on the road to Ohio State (2-0, 6-0) that saw the Badgers battling the entire game, senior nose guard Beau Allen emphasizes drawing on the positives, something that the coaches and team also emphasize. “You learn things from every

single game you play,” Allen said. “Even if it’s a big win like we’ve had or a tough loss like Ohio State, we definitely learn a lot. One thing we learn is that we’re a team that’s going to fight down to the last seconds.” In regard to the Northwestern offense, Allen said Wisconsin has used the bye week to prepare for a trickier offense than they have seen this year. “They’re extremely efficient and they’ve got two really good QBs,” Allen said. “It’s just about being disciplined and not getting distracted or fooled by certain gimmicky stuff that they’ll do.” Redshirt senior defensive end Ethan Hemer called Northwestern’s offense “very talented and very deep.” After reviewing the game against Ohio State, redshirt senior safety Dezmen Southward noted a few key areas the Badgers did well and others things they could improve upon. “No matter what the score

was we went out and really played a tough round of football,” Southward said. “At the same time, we really want to go into this week with the emphasis on limiting the big plays. We have to do our part as the defense on the secondary, and obviously our offense will do their part.” And Southward’s take on containing Northwestern’s offense? He says it comes down to consistency and focus. “They do so many things that can take your eyes off the person that you should be on,” he said. “So we really want to be focused and consistent with where our eyes are, and we’ll be fine if we do that.” Southward also said that it’s important to take away the positives from every game. “Any week that you go in and play a tough Big Ten opponent like [Ohio State] you’re going to have some good and you’re going to have some bad,” Southward said. “The important thing is how well can you

some wins.” Kickoff against Northwestern is set for 2:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
