Recent UW grad loses battle with cancer By Ben Siegel The Daily Cardinal

Just six weeks after she gathered the strength to walk across the stage to receive her UW-Madison diploma in December, Tessia Brown passed away from cancer. She was 22. Madison-born Brown graduated with a degree in fashion design. A passionate performer, she enjoyed singing and dancing along with modeling, winning the UW-Madison Campus Idol contest her freshman year, according to an obituary provided by her funeral home. Professor Jody Fossum taught Brown in Design Studies 610 last semester, a course built around organizing and putting on an annual fashion show for student designers and the School of Human Ecology each May. Brown had previously participated in the show, but enrolled in

the class this fall determined to play a central role in the entire event, Fossum said. Her ideas were selected as the leading influence in the upcoming show’s concept. After a class assignment on researching and presenting information on various kinds of fashion shows. “She either stayed in touch or came to class with her mother so she could finish the class,” Fossum said. “Every day she was an inspiration for people…the fact that she graduated, her power and energy of mind. She was incredibly remarkable.” Beyond incorporating her conceptual plans, the Design Studies fashion show in May will also commemorate Brown with either an award or scholarship. Brown was diagnosed with

Tessia Brown was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. Though ill, she continued her studies and graduated this past December.

Bus system could face funding cuts UW-Madison might stop funding the campus bus system, meaning students would pay for the services through segregated fees, members of the Associated Students of Madison’s Student Transportation Board said Friday. Students currently pay for 47 percent of the bus system, amounting to $770,000. Administrators have told members of the STB that students would likely be expected to pay for 74 percent of the system by 2015, amounting to $1.4

million. “Students have been unfairly viewed as a blank check,” STB Chair Chase Wilson said in a press release. “Transportation Services may believe they can pressure students into paying entirely for programs that the university no longer sees as their responsibility, but we disagree.” The board plans to negotiate with university officials for bus system funding. The university was unavailable for comment.

In response to allegations that Adidas closed a factory in Indonesia without paying the 2,800 workers due severance, UW-Madison Chancellor David Ward said he will meet with UW System officials this week to discuss breaking ties with the company. But, some community members say this is not enough. The UW-Madison Student Labor Action Coalition demanded the university act when PT Kizone, the Indonesian factory where Adidas produced some of its Wisconsin apparel, closed abruptly in January.

Adidas responded to the allegations Thursday, saying they had nothing to do with the independently-owned factory closing.

“All of the facts have been out for months and basically, he’s just pushing off on this when really, for these workers, this is money that they need immediately.” Lingin Kong member UW-Madison Student Labor Coalition

Ward said he is leaning towards ending the university’s

contract with Adidas after he discussed the issue with university and athletic officials according to a memo he sent to the UW-Madison’s Labor Licensing Policy Committee Friday. “Upon my initial reading, my feeling is that [Adidas’ response to the allegations] does not address the concerns that the committee has articulated,” Ward said. “After appropriate and speedy consultation, I am inclined to give notice to Adidas that we believe it is in material breach of the terms of the Code of Conduct.” However, Ward said the uni-

Walker to meet “John Doe” prosecuter Gov. Scott Walker said Friday he plans to meet with the prosecutor investigating illegal activities at his former Milwaukee County Executive office that have led to charges against five of his former aides and associates.  While some groups take the announcement to mean Walker was aware of or involved in the illegal activities, the governor said he is not the target of the John Doe investigations.   “My cooperation in this matter extends beyond a will-

ingness to supply any and all requested documents,” Walker said in a statement Friday. “I have already said that I would be happy to sit down with the people looking into these issues and answer any additional questions they may have.”   United Wisconsin, the group responsible for collecting the signatures needed to spark a recall election against the governor, said Walker can’t “avoid the dark clouds” of the ongoing investigation.

“Scott Walker’s hiring of a high-powered legal defense team casts further doubt on his claims that he is not the target of this investigation,” United Wisconsin said in a press release. “This move clearly shows that the Governor is on the defensive.” The ongoing investigation began 20 months ago. The defendants have been charged with campaigning and raising money for Walker while on the state’s dime. ­—Tyler Nickerson

ith an abundance of time on my hands over winter break to mull over frivolous thoughts, feelings and goals, I began pondering one afternoon what my greatest fears are. Of course there are the typical fears most people possess, myself included, such as dying in a fiery plane crash, never figuring out what the hell I want to do with my life, and living in a van down by the river because I couldn’t land a steady job after four years at Madison. Most chaps my age are also plagued with the crippling fears of becoming their parents. I, on the other hand, have decided to embrace the fact that I am slowly but surely turning into my dear mother. But I will save that glorious story for another column because, to me, there are far worse first world problems I could suffer from and I will opt for my old lady tendencies over the following exceptional fears of mine.

Adult Onset Acne

Throughout most of my middle school and high school career, I had pretty much flawless skin as far as blemishes go. Not trying to sound conceded, that’s just the way the cookie crumbled. Since attending UW-Madison, it’s been pretty much the same with the occasional flare ups. I can deal with a week here and there of attempting to find different ways of wearing my hair, scarves, hats, etc. or trying to convince people

that face masks aren’t just made for skiers so that I can hide my third eye. What I can’t deal with is being a thirty or forty something year old, married with kids and giving a presentation at my dream job while my co-workers whisper, “Can I get some pepperoni on that pizza face?” behind my back. Plus, I kind of sort of always wanted to be a MILF and fear that having more zits than my 13 year old son will be somewhat of a turn off.

midst of an intriguing discussion to search for a bathroom in hands down the most confusing building on campus—Humanities. In the second scenario, I would simply be forced to shit my pants and then do an awkward jog to the start or finish line— whichever has the nearest bathroom. I think the second scenario may be slightly worse.

Dropping a deuce on my newborn child

Rumor has it some mothers accidently slip a lil’ poo while giving birth. I’m not sure if this is a myth used to frighten Inopportune expectant mothers Indigestion, or if there is some Upset legitimacy to this Stomach or claim. Regardless, Diarrhea… if my baby comes and no out with a drop of graphic by dylan moriarty Pepto Bismol feces I will, first, My bowel be horrified that movements have been some- my previously listed fear came thing of a predicament all of my true at such a meaningful and life. Too many times I have been unforgettable moment (even struck with a fire burning so fer- more so now that I just shit on vently in my gut after a night my kid) and second, absolutely of drinking far too much Pinot refuse to hold that baby in my Grigrio and margaritas or eating arms until he or she has been a particularly decadent meal— thoroughly cleansed. namely any meal ending with a dessert topped with cream cheese Gluten and/or Lactose frosting. Luckily, more often than Allergy Gluten-free food tastes like not, I am near enough to either a toilet or an entire box of Pepto a dirty rag and not ending my Bismol to put out the inferno. dinner with a fat bowl of ice However, I fear my luck will soon cream is physically impossible. run out and diarrhea will come I would have absolutely no down on me with a vengeance desire to live. Enough said. during, say, my history seminar or one of the many charity runs Becoming a gossipy, PTA I participate in that have virtu- mother These chatty kathys fill literally no bathrooms in site. In the first scenario, I would be forced ally every corner of good ole to sprint out of the room in the Grafton, Wis., and let me tell

Delving into

you, I got a heavy dosage of the buzz around Grafton each time I ventured to Target, Pick n’ Save or Form and Fitness to run off the obscene amount of Christmas cookies and Sauvignon Blanc I indulged in over break. It’s one thing to smack talk about your own kid—I know I’m going to vent my rage to my workout buddy each time I come home to my husband and children bitching about wanting dinner and a new TV with surround sound and over 10,000 channels—but I’ll be damned if you catch me gossiping about poor little Janet next door who got escorted out of the high school spring fling dance because she was severely inebriated… and underage at that. Or about naive little Billy who decided to toke it up during third period last week and is now suspended for two weeks. Who in the F cares? If it ain’t my kid, it makes no difference to me. By no means is this list extensive as it could be. For example, I did not discuss the fact that I seriously believe I am becoming a hypochondriac. Say the word “cancer,” “infection” or “abdominal pain” and I suddenly feel a tumor growing inside me or my throat swelling up to the size of a football. While some (all) of these fears may be irrational, I am almost certain there are other souls out there who suffer from similar worries. I can only hope that these fears do not become so crippling I begin to develop full blown agoraphobia. Have similar and/or more irrational fears than Rebecca, such as fearing an airplane will crash into your humble abode one day? Share them with her at alt2@dailycardinal.com.

Mandela soon to be released

By Tim Richards of the cardinal staff

Following weeks of speculation, South African President F.W. De Klerk announced plans Friday to release anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela during the opening 1990 address to the South African Parliament. Although no date was announced, Mandela, who has spent almost 28 years in prison, is soon to be freed unconditionally from his cottage home on a prison farm

outside of Cape Town. De Klerk also announced a sweeting line of changes in government policy in his landmark speech. Such major changes include: -An end to the bans on the African National Congress and more than 30 other groups opposed to apartheid -The freeing of most of South Africa's political prisoners -The lifting of restrictions imposed during a state of emergency over a three-year period

-A moratorium on executions -The lifting of restrictions put on 374 activists after being released from detention -The limiting of state-ofemergency detentions to six months -The lifting of emergency restrictions on the news media. “It's amazing,” said Duncan Chaplin of the Anti-Apartheid Coalition about de Klerk's speech. “I almost couldn't believe it.” The legalization of the African National Congress was the most

substantial announcement, according to Chaplin. Among other things, it would allow the ANC to hold meetings locally to discuss change. It would also allow them to discuss things openly with Mandela. Chaplin said that the changes in policy might be linked to the recent unrest in Eastern Europe. Less funding from Eastern governments could result in the South African government feeling less threatened, he said.

Appeals court gives recall groups more say in GAB lawsuit

UW counseling visits up, report says

By Kendalyn Thoma

By Alison Bauter

An order that would make election officials more aggressively check for invalid signatures to recall Gov. Scott Walker could be overturned after a Madison Appeals Court vacated the original ruling Friday. In the original lawsuit, brought on by Walker in December, Waukesha County Circuit Judge J. Mac Davis prevented Democratic recall petitioner committees from intervening in the case. The Friday order undid the decision from the original case. Before the original lawsuit, the Government Accountability Board, which is in charge of the recall process, only had to check that petition signatures were from the appropriate election districts, within the allotted recall time period, and a had complete address. Critical review of fake or duplicate signatures was to be left up to individual campaigns that would be responsible for challenging petitions. The GAB made plans to use an expensive database to verify the validity of signatures following Davis’ decision, a process that would add time to the petition review. Stephan Thompson, executive director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, said in a press release the board should continue with its plans for how to review the petitions. “Today’s appeals court ruling does not invalidate the need for heightened transparency and integrity in this process, and we encourage the (GAB) to continue its efforts to ensure that Wisconsin electors are not treated unfairly in this process,” Thompson said. Appeals Judges Paul Lundsten, Margaret Vergeront and Paul Higginbotham ordered the unanimous decision. Election officials have until March 19 to determine if elections should be held.

Mirroring national and statewide trends, demand for mental health services at UW-Madison increased last year, according to a report published by The Center for Investigative Journalism and written by UW-Madison journalism students. Counseling visits at UW-Madison increased by 10 percent last year alone, according to the story. Working to keep pace with the increased demand for mental health services, University Health Services compensates by prioritizing cases by urgency, utilizing a crisis hotline for those with immediate needs, and offering group and drop-in counseling sessions. Currently, approximately 9 percent of UW-Madison students receive campus counseling or psychiatric services, most for cases of anxiety or depression. According to their website, UHS limits students to 10 counseling sessions within a calendar year and 20 sessions during the student’s entire academic career. Group counseling sessions have no limit. But the center reported the limited sessions and wait time between appointments, often as much as three weeks, force some students to seek private, off-campus help. In the story, UHS director Sarah Van Orman said this “poses great barriers” for students who frequently lack health insurance, or do not have coverage in the Madison area. Angela, a senior who has utilized the campus counseling services since her freshman year, said in her experience UHS has been “incredibly helpful and willing to do anything to help students,” despite growing demand and time constraints. A random sample found the condition of 85 percent of UW-Madison students receiving mental health services had improved, according to the Center’s article. Students can also seek help from campus groups, including the National Alliance for Mental Health, Active Minds and Supporting Peers in Laid-back Listening (SPILL).

Tax-exempt Pres House to give city $30,000 in 2012 Pres House Apartments, a taxexempt, church-owned student apartment building, will voluntarily give $30,000 to the city of Madison this year. The city of Madison and the Pres House arranged a program where a tax-exempt organization makes voluntary payment for city services like street lighting and the police department, according to Ald. Scott Resnick, District 8. Because Pres House residents do not have to belong to the Presbyterian Church, the city originally determined the Pres House would pay taxes. In 2009, The Pres House received tax-exempt status, though, and Gov. Scott Walker vetoed a budget change last June that would have removed the organization’s tax-exempt status. According to Resnick, Pres House’s board felt it was appropriate to support the city and be a good neighbor to the Madison community. “When someone is voluntarily going to make payments when they don’t have to, I’m going to accept them,” Resnick said. “We’re not turning away the money.”

Nearly 250 people attended a lecture Friday by Dr. Frans de Waal, the former head of the Wisconsin National Primate Center, as part of the Forum on Animal Research Ethics.

Leading primate researcher defends benefits of testing By Kelly Kallien The Daily Cardinal

Director of Yerks National Primate Research Center Dr. Frans de Waal defended the integral role chimpanzees and other animals play in biomedical research at institutions such as UW-Madison in front of a crowd of 250 Friday. De Waal spoke on both his own research and the overarching ethical concerns of primate research as part of a discussion series sponsored by the UW-Madison Forum on Animal Research Ethics. De Waal worked at the Wisconsin National Primate Center in Madison from 1981 to 1991. The Center is based in the Graduate

Brown was scheduled for surgery to remove the cancerous cells in her thymus gland before it was discovered that

School of UW-Madison and uses about 2,000 primates in biomedical research including studies on HIV, emotion and stem cell research. Last December, The Institute of Medicine released a report recommending the National Institutes of Health only perform experiments on chimpanzees that would be ethically acceptable to perform on a human. Although the report questioned the need for chimpanzees in research at all because of technological advancements in medicine, de Waal said chimpanzees have very similar DNA to humans and can help make psychological and biological advancements in

humans. He said the criteria of whether these advancements would be worth the chimpanzee’s pain needs to be measured by how beneficial these advancements would be to humans. “The more evasive or the more painful or the more hurtful the procedure, the greater the potential benefits would need to be,” de Waal said. After the IOM report, De Waal said he believed many more primates used for research now will be placed into communities with other research primates because they are unable to be released back into the wild.

On average, the five-year and ten-year survival rates for thymic carcinoma are 38 and 28 percent, according to the Foundation for Thymic Cancer Research. Development of thymic-cancer treatments has been halting due to a lack of research into the less-frequently occurring form of cancer. Roughly 30 percent of

those diagnosed with thymicrelated cancer do not have symptoms at the time of diagnosis; it is usually revealed during routine examination work for other things. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11 at Mt.

versity does “not ignore the positive and productive relationship we have had with Adidas to date” and legal expenses stemming from breaking the contract could be extensive. But some UW-Madison community members are asking Ward to be more assertive. SLAC member Lingin Kong said Ward’s response to the allegations were not sufficient and only further delayed university action. “I think he’s stalling,” Kong said. “All of the facts have been out for months and basically, he’s just pushing off on this when really, for these workers, this is money that they need immediately.” The UW-Madison labor policy committee passed a motion Friday asking Ward give adidas an ultimatum: either pay the workers severance within 90 days or UW will cut ties with the company. “These people are very poor and are not able to eat, not able to send their kids to school, and

nobody disputes the fact that they are owed money,” LLCP Chair Lydia Zepeda said. Prior to the committee’s meeting, students read Ward a testimony from one of the PT Kizone workers who can no longer afford to pay the ten dollars for his two daughters to attend school. “If we could eat properly, even once a day, we would be very grateful,” one of the testimonies said. While UW-Madison has previously ended contracts with both Nike and Russell Athletics for violating labor policies, Vice Chancellor for University Relations Vince Sweeney said the university does its best to prevent the violations by creating codes of conduct. “When they enter these agreements, people are aware of what our requirements are, so we think that we are being proactive at the start of the relationship,” Sweeney said. “If people find there’s been issues, we hold their feet to the fire, so to speak, on what they agreed to up front.”

l o ckb u st e r, Ho l ly wo o d Videos, and other such brickand-mortar video rental providers have been closing up shop in droves across the country over the past few years, simply out-competed by newer, more convenient entertainment providers like Netflix and Redbox. But the transition from these fading entertainment elites to the new generation has gone anything but smoothly thanks to meddling movie studios. Studios have been noticing declining sales in the physical copies (DVDs, Blu-rays) of their movies for a while now. Instead of considering the fact that it might be because consumers simply don’t want to purchase physical media anymore, and would far prefer to deal with streaming and digital files, they have decided to do everything possible to keep things as they are rather than adapt and move forward. Previously, major movie studios like Warner Bros. had forced Netflix, Redbox and other such providers to agree to a 28-day waiting period after a movie had been released for retail before they could offer the property for rental. When that didn’t seem to stop the decline in physical sales, Warner Bros. decided to increase the waiting period to 56 days after release.

All the monolithic American movie studios just need to give up the ghost and join the rest of us online.

Last month, Netflix caved and inked a new deal with Warner Bros., including a 56-day delay. However, recently Redbox decided they had had enough of these irrational tactics that only hurt consumers. Redbox announced they would not be signing a deal directly with Warner Bros., but instead would purchase their movies through

another source (i.e. from retail stores rather than from the studio directly) and offer the films with no waiting period after release. It will probably cost Redbox more now that they have to buy the films indirectly, but someone had to call out the studios on their bullshit. As an avid movie consumer, few things have matched the frustration I’ve felt from watching stubborn movie studios desperately try to hold back their own distribution industry from progress. They say they want to fight piracy, and yet the very course they have been pursuing has undoubtedly driven countless pirates further into the practice.

The reality is that for most digital media pirates, the issue of payment is at or near the bottom of their list of reasons to pirate in the first place.

Studios love to paint media piracy as an action purely motivated by greed. That it is an act precisely akin to walking into a Best Buy, picking up a Blu-ray copy of “Inception” and walking out the door with it tucked inside your jacket. The reality is that for most digital media pirates, the issue of payment is at or near the bottom of their list of reasons to pirate in the first place. Piracy is the result of a service problem. Buying physical media is not completely out of the questeion. I would buy movies if movie studios offered high definition, digital copies without restrictive DRM and with all the accompanying special features that physical media became known for. And if they were available directly to the consumer for a reasonable price, as soon as possible without artificial release delay windows. I know I’d buy them. And I know a lot of pirates that would as well. After all, that has been the trend with digital music. In 2009, a study conducted by the BI Norwegian School of Management found that those who download music illegally are also about ten times more likely to pay for songs than those who don’t. Pirates are media consumers just like everyone else. They’re just the

savvy ones that appreciate technological convenience. But with the right service, movie studios could easily win back the hearts and wallets of pirates everywhere. And this theory, that exceptional service can defeat piracy, has been validated by a rather unexpected source: comedian Louis C.K. On Dec. 10, 2011, Louis posted a comedy special “Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater” for sale online. Louis paid for the production of the movie out of his own pocket without the interference of any large corporate entity. He then posted the movie for download from his website, in simple .avi format with no cumbersome DRM attached like you would get from iTunes, for the surprisingly reasonable price of $5. He even posted a rather humorous plea against “torrenting,” admitting that he doesn’t “really get the whole ‘torrenting’ thing” but that he doesn’t “know enough about it to judge either way.” In the end, C.K. just wanted to remind everyone that, “I am not a company or a corporation. I’m just some guy. I paid for the production and posting of this video with my own money.”

should be compromised for the sake of transparency. The government protects domestic abuse victim’s identities when voting by classifying them as a “confidential voter.” These same protections should apply to the signing of recall petitions. If you are a victim of domestic assault, you should be able to demonstrate your right to sign a public petition without fearing for your

safety. And this isn’t just in the interest of domestic abuse victims, it is also a matter of personal privacy. Petitioners provided their address so that the GAB can verify their signatures and that is the only thing they should be used for. In such a heated political climate, recall supporters shouldn’t be made easy targets by putting their address at any crazy’s fingertips. If people want to look at the signatures to make sure Mickey Mouse doesn’t make an appearance, that’s fine. But, there is no reason the public needs access to home or email addresses. Although the deed has already been done, The Daily Cardinal asks the GAB to redact the home and email addresses on the petitions listed on their website.

DSM revisions good for diagnoses David Ruiz

opinion columnist

Talking about mental illness is extremely difficult to do in today’s society. Even with biology and psychology’s progress towards understanding the brain, mental diseases still carry a certain stigma. The healthcare professionals who work in psychiatry rely on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) to provide a common rubric on which to evaluate patients. The DSM attempts to catalog and quantify symptoms of mental disorders for use by clinicians, researchers, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and governmental bodies. Since the DSM’s inception in 1952, it has gone through 4 revisions (each DSM carries its revision number as part of its title e.g. ‘DSM-IV) and the fifth revision is currently in field-testing and has a tentative release date of May 2013. To put it lightly, the issues involved in editing the DSM are complicated. Previous changes in the DSM demonstrate the manual’s importance. In 1980, due in large part to Vietnam veterans seeking treatment, the American Psychological Association added posttraumatic stress disorder to the DSM. The change allowed those suffering to more efficiently seek treatment and have that treatment acknowledged by insurance companies. After receiving pressure from politically-active groups, the APA removed homosexuality from the DSM in 1974. The removal of that clause destroyed homosexuality as a symptom or diagnosis. More so than other scientific fields, psychiatry is influenced by society in how it addresses culturally sensitive or relevant issues.

The result? In eight days the comedian made over a million dollars in profit. Clearly, when an entertainment property has demand, and distribution is centered on service to the consumer, there is still plenty of money to be made with digital entertainment.

The APA has contracted the autism-spectrum disorders, and expanded depression into controversial territory.

A counsel of 27 healthcare professionals oversees the changes to the DSM. The committee has overhauled how personality disorders are presented and itemized in the manual. Personality disorders are a finicky area in psychology –

they are disorders that are marked with consistent maladaptive behaviors that are a part of one’s personality. Since the terminology around these disorders is so culturally sensitive, trying to ascribe an extremely wide set of (mostly) qualitative symptoms to a small amount of diagnosable disorders can be very tricky. The DSM-V will have a looser rubric for diagnosing those with personality disorder. Expanding the category gives doctors more interpretive power. However, the changes are drawing criticism. The reasons for expanding or contracting a certain diagnosis are varied: problems such as high comorbidity (the presence of 2 or more diagnosis) and low test re-test reliability (different diagnosis received after separate assessments) must be addressed. The two changes that are drawing the most attention are two cases where the APA has struggled with expanding or contracting the definition of a disorder. The APA has contracted the autism-spectrum disorders, and expanded depression into controversial territory. The DSM-IV used an autism spectrum that had several diagnoses, like Asperger’s syndrome, under its umbrella. The new revision excludes Asperger’s and shuffles it under the broader autism-spectrum disorder. Some of those who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s will not fall into the new category of autism-spectrum disorder, which could have serious implications on their medical treatment and ability to receive government funds. The expansion of depression’s category will have even broader effects. The APA proposes that depression caused by a recent traumatic event – generally described as ‘grief ’—will now merit a diagnosis. Supporters of the change claim it will expedite the recovery and treatment process for those who need help; while detractors fear false-positives, overmedication and the cultural effects of pathologizing emotion. Although the majority of the changes in the DSM will only affect people who are directly involved with the field, the document itself is extremely important as a living reflection for how our society relates to mental disease. The inclusion of grief as a part of major depression hints at a society where familial and

community-based support is now open to be replaced. Other decisions regarding how things are included or organized can be interpreted in many ways: addiction-spectrum is heavy on gambling, but sex addiction is filed under “hypersexuality.” Internet-addiction is included in the appendix, but didn’t warrant inclusion in the main addiction section. Several areas have gained a clause that excludes culturally acceptable forms of expression from becoming a diagnostic credential. The nuances of what is, or is not included in the DSM speak volumes.

The DSM’s status as a living document makes the debate surrounding it extremely valuable.

I believe that the majority of the changes are solid moves in the right direction, reorganizing the personality disorders and autism-spectrum disorders will ultimately prove valuable in diagnoses. Also, including grief in the depression diagnosis will not create as many false positives as feared because the people actually giving those diagnoses are making the distinction between grief and major depression all the time, and their best judgment will guide their decisions. However, there are severe limits on trying to assign such a quantitative approach to a black and gray science. Both change and stasis of the DSM will draw critical attention, which is why the debates surrounding the proposed changes are just as, if not more important than the changes themselves. Mental illness is such a contentious issue that it draws attention from many different groups that have unique demands. The DSM’s status as a living document makes the debate surrounding it extremely valuable for understanding how our society deals with intersecting demands at the edge of our scientific knowledge.

Women’s Hockey

Badgers continue rolling, sweep Minnesota State RECAP By Nico Savidge The Daily Cardinal

Sometimes a good team can fall short of its potential, but still earn a win because—even on an off day—it is better than a weak opponent. Other times that good team plays the way it can, and the results can be impressive. Both sides of that coin were on display Friday and Sunday in the Wisconsin women’s hockey team’s sweep of Minnesota State, as the Badgers earned two conference wins despite a slow start in one game, and thanks to a consistently dominant performance in another. With the last-place Mavericks in town, and playing in front of a substantially smaller crowd than the recordbreaking one that watched them Jan. 28, top-ranked Wisconsin could be forgiven for lacking some energy in the series opener Friday afternoon. But even with those factors pulling down the Badgers’ energy level, it still must have been a shock when, less than two minutes into the game, it was Minnesota State that took the early 1-0 lead on a breakaway goal from junior forward Lauren Smith. The Mavericks held that lead through the first period and well into the second, before senior Badger forward Brooke Ammerman scored shorthanded to even the game at one. Friday afternoon games have been a stumbling block for the Badgers, who have struggled

to find a competitive spark in those games for the past few weeks. It is a trend Ammerman said she is hoping to get rid of. “We shouldn’t have to go down by a goal to get going,” she said. “That’s been a constant theme lately, and hopefully we’ll snap it in our next two Friday games.” After her goal opened Wisconsin’s scoring, Brooke Ammerman’s sister, sophomore forward Brittany, followed with two goals of her own—and later added a pair of assists—to give the Badgers a lead they would not lose. By the end of the game, it was clear which team boasted a wide array of offensive threats that can wear down opposing defenses, but the memory of that slow start was tough to shake. There would be no such problem Sunday afternoon, however, as Wisconsin seemed more effective from the start, showing a consistent energy level the Badgers have lacked for the past few series. “People just came out with a great amount of energy,” senior forward and team captain Hilary Knight said. “They were ready to dig deep and get dirty.” With that renewed energy, the balanced Wisconsin attack found scoring from all over the lineup Sunday, as the Badgers’ first three goals came from three different lines. Brittany Ammerman found her way onto the score sheet again Sunday, scoring two more times and

Sophomore forward Brittany Ammerman broke out of her scoring slump in a big way against Minnesota State, recording seven points (four goals, three assists) on the weekend. assisting on one of Knight’s goals to cap off a seven-point weekend.

“As long as we keep this energy and play three periods we’re going to be a tough team to beat.” Hilary Knight senior forward Wisconsin women’s hockey

For Ammerman, a sophomore forward who seemed to hit a scoring slump around the same time her linemate Knight did, it

was a welcome change of pace. Knight attributed the change to the work Ammerman has put in to break both players’ slumps. “She’s been staying after practice and working on a couple things with different coaches,” Knight said. “If we can get that chemistry and keep going with it, we’re not going to have any problems going forward.” Along with success on offense, sophomore goaltender Alex Rigsby backstopped another impressive performance on defense Sunday. Rigsby provided 53 minutes of shutout hockey before being

pulled for junior goaltender Nikki Kaasa, who made five saves in her conference play debut to preserve the 6-0 Wisconsin victory. Knight said she was most impressed with how consistent Wisconsin played from start to finish in the series finale. “We played a three-period game,” Knight said. “And you haven’t seen that from us for a couple of weeks, even a couple of months now.” “As long as we keep this energy and play three periods,” she added, “we’re going to be a hard team to beat.”

Wisconsin travels to Columbus for matchup with No. 11 Buckeyes By Ryan Hill The Daily Cardinal

The Wisconsin women’s basketball team (4-6 Big Ten, 8-14 overall) looks to avenge last Thursday’s overtime loss against Iowa and begin a new winning streak against No. 11 Ohio State (7-2, 20-2) Monday in Columbus, Ohio.

The 85-79 overtime loss to the Hawkeyes late last week snapped the Badgers threegame winning streak, which was the longest of the season. The Buckeyes find themselves in a similar situation, as they dropped their last game at Minnesota Jan. 29 76-65. The loss snapped a five game win-

ning streak and now leaves them a half game out of first place behind No. 15/17 Purdue and No. 16/18 Nebraska. Ohio State has won seven of the past eight Big Ten regular season championships, but a Wisconsin victory in Columbus Monday could seriously threaten that statistic. The Badgers other incentive is to stop Ohio State’s recent dominance against the Badgers, as the Buckeyes have come out as the victors 19 straight times. The last meeting between the two teams on Dec. 30 marked each team’s Big Ten opener. The Badgers found themselves down only 38-37 against the Buckeyes, who were still undefeated at the time, but allowed a 20-2 run to start the second half and ended up falling 77-61. The Badgers shot 44 percent from the floor in the first half but only sunk 33 percent of their shots in the second. Ohio State junior guard Tayler Hill, the Big Ten’s leading scorer at 21.6 points per game, played the biggest part in the Buckeyes’ offensive attack and scored 21 points and pulled down seven rebounds. Four Ohio State players had double-digit point totals in the game. Leading the way for the Badgers were junior guard Taylor Wurtz and senior forward Ashley Thomas with 10 points apiece. Wurtz tied her career-high with 27 points against Iowa last

Thursday, and most likely will need a similar performance Monday, as the Buckeyes are averaging 77.9 points per game this season, which leads the Big Ten and ranks seventh in the country. The Badgers average 60 points per game, but have recently put up higher point totals, putting up 75, 78, 66 and 79 points in their last four games. Wisconsin will also have to divert lots of attention to Buckeye junior guard Samantha Prahalis, who is right behind Hill in terms of point production averaging 19 points per game and shooting 44 percent from the floor. The other half of one of the premier backcourt combos in the nation, Hill, shoots an equally impressive 49.5 percent on the hardwood, which ranks fifth in the Big Ten. If Wisconsin can stop the duo of Hill and Prahalis, it’s chances of coming out with a victory

will be increased significantly as those two playeres account for a large percentage of the Buckeyes total offense. Ohio State’s next leading scorer, junior guard Amber Stokes, averages a modest 7.7 points per game. Wisconsin senior guard Jade Davis will look to continue her recent exceptional play as well. She averages only 6.9 points per game, but put up 16 points against the Hawkeyes, all of which were in the first half, and had 13 against Michigan Jan. 30. Tip off from Value City Arena in Columbus is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

Buckeye dominance

The Buckeyes have the Badgers number on the court. In the all-time series between the two programs, Ohio State has a commanding 45-15 edge, and has won the past 19 meetings with the Badgers.

Ohio State snaps Badgers’ win streak Wisconsin’s struggles at home this season continue as No. 3 Buckeyes leave Madison with big conference win RECAP By Max Sternberg The Daily Cardinal

If there is one thing that we know about the 2011-12 Wisconsin men’s basketball team (7-4 Big Ten, 18-6 overall), it is that we really don’t know anything. In one of the more Jekyll and Hyde seasons in recent memory, the Badgers have pulled off unexpected wins while suffering a seemingly equal amount of unexpected defeats. While Saturday’s 58-52 defeat at the hands of No. 3 Ohio State (8-2, 20-3) was far from an upset, the manner in which the Buckeyes came out of Madison is certainly not what many had seen coming. Looking at the numbers, it is a surprise that Wisconsin had a chance down the stretch. The Badgers did manage to hit the 40 percent mark from the field, but shot just 18 percent (5-for27) from three-point range. More importantly, Wisconsin only got to the free throw three times the entire afternoon, the first Badger free throw coming with just 6:46 left in the game. “It had to be at least 90 percent [good shots],” Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan said of his team’s shot selection. “But I thought [Ohio State] shut off stuff going to the rim so then you’ve got to go to what’s next.”

To make matters worse, the Badgers turned the ball over 10 times while only forcing nine turnovers out of the Buckeyes. For a team built upon their ability to take care of the ball, a few careless passes were the unexpected difference down the stretch as Wisconsin tried to erase a deficit that seemed to stay at seven for most of the second half. Even with everything going the way of the Buckeyes, Wisconsin had a chance to steal the victory late in the game. A threepointer by junior forward Mike Bruesewitz—the Badgers’ first three ball in over eight minutes— got Wisconsin within one with 3:46 left. Ohio State sophomore guard Aaron Craft missed the front end of a one-and-one opportunity at the other end and the Badgers had a chance to take the lead for the first time since the 5:10 mark of the first half. “We were playing with fire,” Ohio State head coach Thad Matta said. “We told them we had to stick to what we were doing. I thought Aaron up on the ball was tremendous.” But unlike last season, the Buckeyes responded to the threat. Craft got pressure on Badger senior guard Jordan Taylor on the right wing and forced a bad pass inside to junior forward Ryan Evans. Buckeye sophomore forward Jared Sullinger intercepted the weak entry and Ohio State got a big time

three-pointer from senior guard William Buford to quiet the crowd and extinguish the threat. “That was obviously a big time shot,” Matta said of Buford’s threepointer. “I’ve got great faith in William but that was obviously a big, big shot for us.” While it was Buford who put the Badger comeback bid to bed, it was Sullinger and fellow sophomore forward DeShaun Thomas that carried the Buckeyes to their first win at the Kohl Center since 2000. Sullinger imposed his will early by scoring the first nine points for the Buckeyes. Sullinger finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds while Thomas added 16 points and six boards of his own, including a few second chance looks that seemed to squash every opportunity the Badgers had at making a run. “If anybody thinks that’s what we said we were going to do coming into that game then you weren’t at practice watching what was going on,” Ryan said. Wisconsin junior forward Jared Berggren struggled all day trying to contain Sullinger and limit his post touches. After holding similarly heralded big men Cody Zeller, Tyler Zeller, and Myers Leonard well below their season averages, the Princeton, Minn native couldn’t handle the much more physical Sullinger. “[Sullinger] got the ball early, got a couple easy ones, and got himself

Jared Sullinger’s presence in the paint was a key factor in the Badgers’ loss. Sullinger finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds. going,” Bruesewitz said. “We had to limit his touches and make sure he didn’t get the ball as deep as he did.” Wisconsin has now lost four games at home in a season for the first time since 1995-96. But despite their struggles at home, the Badgers are not out of the hunt for a Big Ten title and a high seed in the NCAA Tournament. With road

games ahead against Minnesota and Michigan State, the next two weeks will once again be make or break for the Badgers. “It’s not over,” Taylor said. “You have to go and try to beat Minnesota on Thursday. They have a good team and they are playing well. It’s definitely no time to feel sorry for yourself.”

Wisconsin swept at home at the hands of St. Cloud State Badgers again fail to earn a single point as home ice becomes increasingly out of reach RECAP By Matt Masterson The Daily Cardinal

The Wisconsin men’s hockey team (12-14-2, 7-13-2 WCHA) had a chance to grab four crucial points and make a leap forward in the WCHA standings, but the Badgers fell flat this weekend and were swept at the hands of conference foe St. Cloud State (12-14-4, 9-10-3). The team’s goal late in the season has been to make a push for home ice advantage in the conference playoffs, but after being swept for the second consecutive weekend, it’s clear that the Badgers aren’t going to be able to achieve that goal without some help. “To be honest, we’re probably going to need some help,” Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves said after Saturday’s 2-1 loss. “That’s the long and short of it. And once again, what becomes our focus is what we have to do next, but if you want to take a step back and look at the big picture, we’re going to need some help.” Wisconsin started strongly Friday night, but momentum quickly shifted to St. Cloud after Badger captain, junior defenseman John Ramage, was ejected

for a hit on Husky freshman forward Nick Oliver. Ramage was assessed a five minute major for contact to the head and a game misconduct, leaving Wisconsin with just five defensemen. St. Cloud State dominated the last 40 minutes of the game, leaving the Badgers with few quality chances while burying five goals of their own, including three in the second period. Freshman Brendan Woods got Wisconsin on the board with just over two minutes remaining, but it was far too little and well too late as the Badgers dropped game one 5-1. “We’ve had two games that we have been out of all year, both were against St. Cloud,” Eaves said Friday night. “It was one of those games where we just didn’t do very much right. We did not see it coming as a staff.” While the Badgers may have looked listless for much of Friday’s game, the team came back firing on Saturday. After a scoreless first period, Wisconsin took their first lead of the weekend in the second after sophomore defenseman Frankie Simonelli found the back of the net on the power play. The Huskies tied the game early in the third period before SCSU freshman defenseman

Mark Kauzlarich/the daily cardinal

Huskies’ goaltender Mike Lee stifled the Badgers offense all weekend, stopping 72 of 74 shots in the St. Cloud sweep. Wisconsin now sits sixs points out of a home ice spot in the WCHA. Jarrod Rabey beat Wisconsin freshman goaltender Landon Peterson for the game’s deciding goal. Wisconsin controlled the game for long stretches on Saturday, but they were stopped time and time again by Husky goaltender Mike Lee. Lee, a junior from Roseau, Minn., was the unques-

tioned star of the weekend, stopping 72 of the 74 shots he faced, including a season high 42 from the Badgers on Saturday. “We had chances,” junior defenseman Justin Schultz said. “We just couldn’t find a way to put anything in and that’s frustrating. [Lee’s] a good goalie.” The Badgers have six regu-

lar season games remaining, and while home ice advantage may be out of the picture at this point, the team can still put itself in a good position for the WCHA playoffs. Wisconsin has a bye week this weekend and will work to get back on track before welcoming Denver to the Kohl Center on Feb. 17.
