ILLINOIS STUDENT SENATE

Gebhardt elected student body president BY MELISSA ESPAÑA STAFF WRITER

With 53 percent of the vote, Brock Gebhardt was selected as student body president at Monday night’s Illinois Student Senate executive board elections. The election, which was held at the Illini Union, was introduced by current student body president and student trustee-elect David Pileski. “(The winners of tonight’s election) are elected to represent the students on our campus,” Pileski said. “(They) balance time not just for the senate but for the students.” The meeting was open to the public, though only current sen-

ators could vote. Each candidate was allowed five minutes to give a speech, which was followed by a Q-and-A session with the candidate, deliberation and a final vote. Gebhardt was chosen over two other candidates: Sarah Koritz, student senator and junior in Business, and Jim Maskeri, student senator and junior in LAS. This was Maskeri’s second run for student body president, as he ran last year but lost with 43 percent of the vote. Gebhardt is a senator emeritus, member of the academic affairs committee and member of the Illini Media Company board. He also chairs the smoke-free campus committee.

In his speech, Gebhardt emphasized his dedication to supporting students and making change. “Let’s be a senate that answers the call to defend students’ rights and students’ money,” Gebhardt said in his speech. “(My father used to say), don’t tell me about how many sleepless nights you put in. Tell me what you achieved. That’s what matters. Focus, action and relevance .... Our goal is student advocacy.” While much of the 20-minute deliberation focused on the other two candidates, specifi cally Maskeri, Sam Barghi, current vice president-external and senior in LAS, said that Gebhardt

had more supporters than the discussion exhibited. “I think he had more supporters than detractors,” Barghi said. “People were more vocal than others, but at the end of the day, it’s about how many votes you had and the support you can get behind the scenes.” In other executive board elections, Ryan Young, student senator and junior in LAS, was elected vice president-external, and Drew Tavernor, student senator and freshman in FAA, was elected vice president-internal. Kevin Seymour, graduate student, won the treasurer seat. The new elected officials will be sworn into office April 18.

UI Chancellor launches survey to seek student input on campus future to students,” Pileski said. “Especially with the latest survey, I think it’s really important to engage students in long—term planning for our University.” Pileski added that as a student, it is good to be able to offer their input about how the University is doing. “It’s very good to be part of these long—term discussions to really make progress and changes to the campus,” he said. The results from the survey will be specifically used for strategic planning, according to the email. Completion of the survey is expected to take about 15 to 20 minutes. Jason Kosovsk i , senior communication and evaluation coordinator at the provost office, said over 1,200 people have responded so far. “It seems like some of the concerns have been about education, energy, environmental sustainability, jobs, poverty and equality,” Kosovski said.

Cha ncel lor a nd vice president Phyllis Wise sent out a mass e-mail last week inviting students, faculty and staff to participate in an anonymous, voluntary survey in order to gain input on their concerns and how they feel the University should address them. The survey is part of Wise’s Visioning Illinois Excellence into the Future initiative. “The chancellor is conducting a visioning exercise to help determine where the campus should be 20 to 50 years from now so we can plan for that,” said Robin Kaler, campus spokeswoman. “She is having quite a few visioning events where people can come and brainstorm about that (plans for the University), and for people who can’t attend one of those, she has put together a survey.” David Pileski , student body president, said the survey offers students a chance to have their voices heard. “I really admire Chancellor Wise’s attention to reach out

Monsanto farms for future America’s Farmers film shows how to feed growing population BY EMMA WEISSMANN

Flagging down sexual assault

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Flags line the quad Monday as part of the Red Flag Campaign promoting Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

“The America’s Farmers Mobile Experience,”an interactive farming exhibit, arrived on campus Monday as a part of the America’s Farmers campaign. The campaign is an agriculture advocacy program through Monsanto, a biotechnology corporation. The exhibit educates consumers about the challenges facing modern farmers and offers tours of all three sections of the exhibit, according to a press release. The exhibit will remain open for a fi nal day Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in parking lot F-28. The exhibit, which travels across the nation in a trailer, has traveled to 22 states and participated in 70 events, said Kim Skinner, outreach marketing manager at Monsanto. The Monsanto Co. specializes in farming sustainability and promotes the idea of using scientifi c methods to produce a higher yield of crops with ideal genetic characteristics. Three of these methods — plant breeding, biotechnology and agronomics — were highlighted in the “mobile experience.” According to a video shown in the exhibit’s 180-degree theater, the world’s population is estimated to reach 9 billion in 50 years with no increase in farmland, energy or water. The exhibit revolved largely around

SURVEY FROM PAGE A1 He said 20 percent of the people who have responded up to this point are undergraduates, and 14 percent are graduate students. Kaler said it is great to see that students and faculty want to help guide the institution. She said that after the survey has been completed, the data will then need to be organized into categories, so the University can decide which to focus on. The gathered information will also be shared on the chancellor’s blog, on a Visioning Illinois Excellence website and at town hall meetings. “The group will get together and determine what items really reign at the top and what items are most feasible; those will be the areas where the campus will fi nd ways to ensure that we are offering resources so that we can have a national and international role in solving those challenges.” she said. The survey is expected to be ongoing until the end of April.

Bin Laden’s relatives sentenced to prison BY ZARAR KHAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ISLAMABAD — A Pakistani court sentenced Osama bin Laden’s three widows and two of his daughters to 45 days in prison on Monday for illegally living in the country, ordering them deported when the sentence ends, their lawyer said. With credit for time served, the women and several of their other children will leave Pakistan later this month, said lawyer Mohammed Amir Khalil. They have been in detention since American commandos killed bin Laden in a large house in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad on May 2, but they were formally charged with immigration offenses only last month. The Americans left the women and children behind in the house after they flew off with bin Laden’s corpse. The women may have information about how bin Laden managed to remain undetected for close to 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in the U.S., despite being the subject of a massive international manhunt. The youngest, 30-year-old Yemeni wife Amal Ahmed

Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, has told investigators bin Laden lived in five houses while on the run and fathered four children, two of whom were born in Pakistani government hospitals. Pakistani officials have said they had no idea the al-Qaida chief was in Abbottabad, something many in Washington found hard to believe because his compound was located close to Pakistan’s equivalent of the West Point military academy. The U.S. has not found evidence indicating senior Pakistani offi cials knew of bin Laden’s whereabouts, but said he must have had some form of “support network.” Two of the widows are Saudi and one is Yemeni. Khalil said Yemen has consented to the return, but he is still in discussions with Saudi officials. Saudi Arabia stripped bin Laden of his citizenship in 1994 because of his verbal attacks against the Saudi royal family. Al-Sada was overjoyed to fi nally be heading home, said her brother, Zakaria al-Sada, who has been campaigning for her release. Yemen has issued her five children passports so they can return

with her, he said. “This verdict is a victory for the oppressed after a tough time,” he said. A member of the bin Laden family in Saudi Arabia, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said they had talked to Saudi officials, who indicated they would be willing to allow the widows to return and grant their children citizenship if requested. But the family, which is prominent and wealthy, has not decided whether to intervene on the women’s behalf, he said. The Saudi Foreign Ministry declined to comment. The five women were also ordered to pay a fi ne of about $110 each, which has already been done, said Khalil. The lawyer said he does not plan to appeal. The three widows would like to be deported to the same country to “stay as one family,” he said. A Yemeni Foreign Ministry offi cial said the country has not received a request to grant the Saudi widows residency. Al-Sada told investigators she flew to

Pakistan in 2000 and traveled to Afghanistan, where she married bin Laden before the Sept. 11 attacks. After that, the family “scattered,” she said, and she traveled to Karachi in Pakistan. She later met up with bin Laden in Peshawar and then moved to the Swat Valley. They moved one more time before settling in Abbottabad in 2005. Al-Sada, said to be bin Laden’s favorite wife, was shot and wounded in the leg during the raid. The compound in Abbottabad was a crowded place, with 28 residents — including the 54-year-old bin Laden, his wives, eight of his children and five of his grandchildren, according to Brig. Shaukat Qadir, a retired Pakistani army officer who spent months researching the bin Laden raid and said he was given access to interrogation transcripts. The bin Laden children ranged in age from his son Khaled, who was in his 20s and was killed in the raid, to a 3-yearold born in Abbottabad, said Qadir. Bin Laden’s courier, the courier’s brother and their wives and children also lived in the compound.

Gunman kills 7 at Christian university in California BY TERRY COLLINS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND, Calif. — A gunman opened fi re Monday at a Christian university in California, killing at least seven people, wounding three more and setting off an intense, chaotic manhunt that ended hours later with his capture at a shopping center, authorities said. The gunfi re erupted around midmorning at Oikos University. Heavily armed offi cers swarmed the school building in a large industrial park near the Oakland airport. For at least an hour after the shooting began, they believed the shooter could still be at the school. Television footage also showed bloodied victims on stretchers being loaded into ambulances. Several bodies covered in sheets were laid out on a patch of grass at the school. Police spokeswoman Cynthia Perkins said seven people were dead. She did not release any other details about the victims. Myung Soon Ma, the school’s secretary, said she could not provide any details about what happened at the small private school, which serves the Korean community with courses from theology to Asian medicine. “I feel really sad, so I cannot talk right now,” she said, speaking from her home. “No one can go there because the access is restricted right now.” Police believe the shooter acted alone, though they have not discussed a possible motive. Those connected to the school, including the founder and several students, described the gunman as a former nursing student. Officer Johnna Watson said the suspect is an Asian male in his 40s and was taken into custody at a shopping center in the neighboring city of Alameda. Watson would not confi rm if he was a student. Watson said most of the wounded or dead were shot inside the building. The industrial park in which the school is located also includes the county food bank and a local Girl Scouts headquarters.

NOAH BERGER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Emergency officials walk with a gurney outside of Oikos University in Oakland, Calif. A suspect was detained in a shooting attack that sources say have left at least seven people dead on Monday. “It’s a very fluid situation and an active investigation,” Watson said, declining to discuss details of the arrest or a possible motive. KTVU-TV reported that the shooter was a student and opened fi re in a classroom. Pastor Jong Kim, who founded the school about 10 years ago, told the Oakland Tribune that the shooter was a nursing student who was no longer enrolled.

He did not know if the shooter was expelled or had dropped out. Kim said he heard about 30 rapid-fi re gunshots in the building. “I stayed in my office,” he said. Deborah Lee, who was in an English language class, said she heard five to six gunshots at fi rst. “The teacher said, ‘Run,’ and we run,” she said. “I was OK, because I know God pro-

tects me. I’m not afraid of him.” Angie Johnson told the San Francisco Chronicle that she saw a young woman leave the building with blood coming from her arm and crying: “I’ve been shot. I’ve been shot.” The injured woman said the shooter was a man in her nursing class who got up and shot one person at point-blank range in the chest before spraying the room with bullets, Johnson said.

“She said he looked crazy all the time,” she said the victim told her, “but they never knew how far he would go.” According to its website, Oikos University also offers studies in music and nursing. A telephone message left on the university’s main voicemail was not immediately returned. Jerry Sung, the university’s accountant, said the school offers courses in both Korean

and English to less than 100 students. He said the campus consisted of one building. Sung said many of its students went on to work in nursing and ministry. “The founder felt there was a need for theology and nursing courses for Korean-Americans who were newer to the community,” Sung said. “He felt they would feed more comfortable if they had Korean-American professors.”

Affirmative action ban upheld by 9th Circuit Court, again

Readers digest

BY CHRISTINA HOAG THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MICHAEL BOJDA THE DAILY ILLINI

Angela Williams, right, of Champaign, and Terri Gitler, of Champaign, taste an entry in the edible book contest called “The Frog Prince.” Curtis Nesler, Champaign, said it took him four days to bake. The event was held at the University YMCA on Monday.

LOS ANGELES — Affirmative action proponents took a hit Monday as a federal appeals court panel upheld California’s ban on using race, ethnicity and gender in admitting students to public colleges and universities. The ruling marked the second time the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals turned back a challenge to the state’s landmark voter initiative, Proposition 209, which was passed in 1996. Affirmative action proponents, who had requested that the court reconsider its 1997 decision after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that affirmative action could be used in college admissions, said they would continue fighting. “We think the decision is wrong,” said Detroit attorney George B. Washington, who is representing the group of minority students and advocacy groups that filed the latest challenge in January 2010. Washington said he would ask the full appellate court to review the case since this decision was issued by a three-judge panel. In its ruling, the court rejected the plaintiffs’ arguments that a new ruling is needed and said the previous decision still applies. Ralph Kasarda, attorney with

the Pacific Legal Foundation who had argued in favor of the ban, said the court’s decision was not surprising since the issue had already been decided. This case was redundant and baseless, he said. “The bottom line from both decisions by the 9th Circuit — today’s and the ruling 15 years ago — is that California voters have every right to prohibit government from color-coding people and playing favorites based on individuals’ sex or skin color,” Kasarda said in a statement. At least six states have adopted bans on using affirmative action in state college admissions. Besides California and Michigan, they include Arizona, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Washington. Advocates of affirmative action say such bans lead to the exclusion of minority students and less campus diversity. In California, the year after the ban was adopted, the number of black, Latino and Native American students at the University of California’s most prestigious campuses — Berkeley and Los Angeles — plummeted by 50 percent, according to the plaintiffs cited in the court opinion. In February, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case against the University of Texas.

EDITORIAL

April brings awareness of sexual assault misconceptions As

a way of stimulating critical dialogue about a generally taboo topic, April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Most importantly, this month is a time to combat the commonly held assumption that female victims are raped or sexually assaulted because of the clothes they wear. This falsehood is perpetuated by a rape culture that causes people to believe that most people are assaulted by strangers, when, in fact, more than 80 percent of sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows. There is a misconstrued image of sexual assault that looks something like a large, burly man jumping from the bushes to attack some unsuspecting girl on her way home from a late night at the library. While this may be one form of sexual assault, by no means does it constitute the entire spectrum. Cases like the incident in November 2010, when a man entered a bathroom in Forbes Hall and assaulted an unknown victim, are the exception to the norm. Yet these cases are hyped up enough that this is the only type of sexual assault that people pay any attention. The misconception is that if a woman is dressed in a provocative way, then she is more vulnerable to sexual assault. This is not the case.

victim out of a sexual desire but out of a desire to control and dominate. We as a society seem to understand that no one asks or wants to be sexually assaulted, yet all too often, we still blame the victim. Nothing is an invitation for anyone to do so. If consent is not given, then any sexual advancement, if forced, is considered assault. Even if the victim is naked, it is her personal right not to be touched, just as a person who leaves her house unlocked has the right not to be robbed. Remedying this problem doesn’t start and end with preventive tactics like self-defense. Rather, it involves reinventing the rape culture perpetuated by the movies we watch and the songs we hear that teach us violence is a component of sexual relationships. It’s true that it doesn’t take a strong person to slip something into another person’s drink. What it does take, and where sexual assault prevention should begin, is a strong person to understand that no means no and no response does not mean yes.

New media outlets should demand accountability from New York Times MICHAEL HOFFMAN Opinions columnist

T

he New York Times’ influence on American journalism has been unmatched for the past century. The newspaper still shapes the national news agenda to a remarkable degree, but for how long will it retain its relevance in the revolutionized media environment? “The New York Times effect,” as was uncreatively coined, describes an actual phenomena from the olden days: When television news producers woke up, they’d grab a coffee and The New York Times on their doorstep, then go to work and tell Walter Cronkite to investigate what they read in the paper that morning. Now, it seems like the “News Feed” on Facebook tells us more about what’s going on in the world than print newspapers do. With this restructured social-media world, how will the old school stay competitive? After all, when the rules of the game are changed, the players must change too. This is the underlying premise of the 2011 documentary “Page One: Inside the New York Times,” which is an all-access pass into their bustling newsroom. It offers a rare

opportunity to see how stories are crafted in real time by some of the most diligent and well-connected reporters in the country. What cannot be clearly distinguished, however, is how our own political and social opinions are subtly framed by how the Times’ staff frames them. The new media model supposes that this hierarchical order of news distribution can be uprooted and replaced with a more democratic form of sharing information, where the only gatekeeper is the guy with the Wi-Fi password. The shining example of this new media order is WikiLeaks. In 2007, they released the video footage of a U.S. Army helicopter shooting down innocent Iraqis, and the reporters at the Times immediately recognized the site’s importance. When a small group of activists can make such an impact on public perception with the relative ease that it takes anyone to post a video, the Times slowly loses the authoritative edge that characterizes every other chapter of its history. When Daniel Ellsberg released the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times in 1971, it helped turn the tide of public opinion against the Vietnam War. Back then, there was a vital connection between the whistleblower, Ellsberg and the information distributor, the newspaper. But times have changed. Bill Keller, former executive editor of

the Times, put it succinctly: “The bottom line is WikiLeaks doesn’t need us. But Daniel Ellsberg did.” Do we still need The New York Times? The paper does offer is a comprehensive outlet not just for political journalism but also for art, business, sports, science and so on. Grassroots media outlets, like the website Democracy Now!, are children of the Internet Age and have taken the responsibility to be a check on the Times’ authority. Lest we forget, it was The New York Times’ reporting that repeatedly published the dubious evidence for the Iraq War on its front page, and it was Keller who waited for more than a year to publish the article that revealed Bush’s warrantless wiretapping scandal until after he was safely re-elected. The documentary “Page One” crystallizes a romantic notion of the Times’ investigative reporting during a turbulent new age. Its track record shows it to be a valuable cultural institution, but now its survival is at stake as other news sites battle to carve out their own niches. By challenging the Times’ authority, new media’s goal should be to demand a higher level of accountability from it. And if history serves as any guide, when the Times changes, so does the rest of the American readership.

Beware the lotto life: Mega Millions winners may get more than they bargained for NORA IBRAHIM Opinions columnist

B

y the time you read this, the Mega Millionslottery winners will have begun the fourth day of the happiest week of their lives. Maybe they’ve started preparations for their very own Versailles. Perhaps they’ve dined on Wagyu rib-eyes, caviar and a 30-year-old bottle of Montrachet wine three nights straight. No doubt yesterday was the most anti-Garfield Monday that will ever be: Co-workers indubitably casting the stink eye as they cruise into work in a new, red 2013 Ferrari, with all medical payments, taxes and family taken care of — without a care in the world. Right? The sad truth is that these 1-percenters don’t have much hope of maintaining and developing the wealth they’ve recently landed, especially if they’ve chosen to lead the lotto life. The record-breaking Mega Millions lottery ballooned up to $656 million in the hours before the Friday-night drawing, dwarfi ng the previous record of $390 million held in March 2007. Then on early Saturday morning, the holders of the 1.5 billion tickets sold held their breath as the numbers were announced one by one. Three ticket-holders from Kansas, Maryland and southern Illinois shared the largest jackpot

in U.S. history. The mass of wealth had a lot of people sweating bullets about their chances. For those who are curious, it was 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Michigan state government’s website. In other words, you were 9,777 times more likely to be murdered or 13 times more likely to pick the perfect NCAA bracket. The odds of winning were certainly against us. That enormous success can come swiftly to absolutely any one person, and perhaps without even lifting a fi nger — it’s this mentality that keeps our society eager to make the gamble. It’s this mentality that also has driven these winners into the dirt. Take Abraham Shakespeare, the winner of the $31 million Florida jackpot in 2006. Three years later, his fortune was mostly spent, and the man had gone missing — to be found under a concrete slab some time later. If you followed Billie Bob Harrell Jr., the winner of the $31 million Texas jackpot in 1997, you’d fi nd out he committed suicide 20 months later, after his marriage dissolved and “his spending and his lending spiraled out of control,” wrote Steve McVicker in The Houston Press. The media might remember the already-wealthy West Virginian business man, whose unfortunate winning cost him the lives of his daughter and granddaughter and made him attractive to a string of robberies. “The dream you have about winning may be better than the actuality of winning,” said

Steven Danish, a professor in psychology and social and behavioral health at Virginia Commonwealth University, in an interview with ABC News. “There have been families that have just — just been torn apart by this process.” Still, the dream is compelling. Even if we fully understood the abrupt, unsettling truths that come with sudden wealth and the flood of tumultuous lifestyle changes that characterize winning, many would still risk it all for the chance at this disillusioned life of “happiness.” To pass it up would be un-American — against the very essence of human nature even. A few key studies in recent years point to how well wealth and happiness correlate and, more importantly, how much happiness money can actually buy. According to a study conducted by the Center for Health and Well-being at Princeton University published in 2010, an income of $75,000 a year was found to be the threshold, beyond which no significant improvement to emotional well-being can be observed. In the study, much of what people defi ne as emotional well-being is based on spending time with the people they like, leisurely activities and general life satisfaction. In summary, “more money does not necessarily buy more happiness, but less money is associated with emotional pain.” The key is to realize the value of the life we lead, understanding that earned wealth makes life comfortable and, therefore, enjoyable. Hoping a

sudden pool of massive wealth might amplify all of the day-to-day joys and general satisfaction of life, however, is unreasonable and dangerous. As for the trio that split this weekend’s grand prize, may you have the best of luck and be wise in investing. Otherwise, there might be an uglier end in store than that of Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery.”

Touch screens more common, but you don’t have to like them MELISSA ESPAÑA Staff writer

On

March 7, doors to electronic stores all around the country opened to thousands of people standing in line to get their hands on a new iPad 3, which promised consumers higherquality photos and faster 4G connection. An article published a few months ago on CNN.com said our children will grow up knowing how to use only touch-screen technology and that computers with actual QWERTY keyboards will be a thing of the past. I was disappointed after reading the article because I’m not a big fan of tablets or touch-screen keyboards. Not having a physical QWERTY keyboard to easily and quickly do tasks like opening new tabs, adding symbols and including special characters is the biggest reason I don’t like them. To me, an iPad is only for browsing the Internet and doing activities that

don’t require heavy use of a keyboard. So for a student who needs a laptop to write papers, take notes in class and use other applications like PowerPoint and maybe Photoshop, an iPad is a big inconvenience. With all the hype of the new iPad, I figured I might as well see why people wait in line for hours to get their own. For an entire week, I used an iPad as my own personal computer. Not owning an iPad, I checked one out from the Undergraduate Library. Not wanting to drive myself crazy, I let myself use my actual laptop to type up my Daily Illini articles or to write any big papers that were due. Throughout the week, my dislike for touch screens kept growing. It was impossible to connect to the Internet in my dorm because the ethernet cable didn’t connect to the iPad. Also, the screen was too small, which made it hard for me to have many applications like Skype, Pages and the Internet open all at once like I can on my laptop. During my classes, I saw only a small amount of students using iPads, maybe one or two in every class. As

far as using iPads for actual schoolwork, I don’t know many people who do. I usually see people only reading on their iPad or using the Internet when I’m on the bus or sitting at the library. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone type out papers or do class projects on it. The new features on the iPad 3 aren’t as extreme as I thought they would be. The biggest emphasis Apple put on the new features was the amount of pixels that it uses and how the quality of photos and video would be better. But the CNN article was right when it said that touch screens are becoming more commonplace. You can’t step foot into a T-Mobile or AT&T store without seeing displays with nothing but touch-screen phones. Even a step inside Mia Za’s on Green Street shows how common they are; the restaurant has a touch-screen menu on their wall. Even the guy sitting next to me on the Greyhound as I typed this is using a touch-screen phone to scroll through Facebook.

RUNNING

DEAD Zombie-themed app encourages users to exercise, avoid the undead apocalypse BY HALEY JONES STAFF WRITER

Y

ou start out with a slow jog, just trying to put distance between you and the possibility of a painful death. You hear the moans and footsteps of clumsy, heavy feet getting louder behind you. If the threat of zombies tearing you to pieces doesn’t get you to run, not much will. “Zombies are so dangerous because they have the potential to either painfully eat you or infect you, in which case you will die anyway,” said zombie enthusiast Stephanie Gerstetter, freshman in LAS. Fight or flight mode takes over when faced with the fear of getting torn limb from limb by a hoard of brain-hungry zombies. Any sane person would choose to run, and the application Zombies, Run! capitalizes on this instinct. A zombie craze has swept the nation. They can be seen on the television as you flip through the channels, on a bookcase as you browse for a good read, or in an app while looking for a new game to play. “I like zom-

bies because zombies or a zombie apocalypse are both things that I feel could happen in modern society,” Gerstetter said. The new app Zombies, Run! plays through the scenario of an imminent zombie apocalypse. Players become Runner 5 and are sent on missions, but the main point is to steer clear of getting caught in the brain eaters’ grasps. Players must speed their jog up to a run when approaching zombies can be heard. To add even more interest, players collect items such as batteries and medicine on their run to take back to camp. There are 13 missions and 17 more that plan to be released for Zombies, Run! The missions last 20 to 30 minutes and are jampacked with action. Players can create a playlist to listen to under the audio of the game telling you when to flee from a pack of flesh eaters. The idea for the app originated from two people, Adrian Hon and Naomi Alderman. “On my side, I used to hate running as a teenager and only got into it with the help of gadgets like the Garmin Forerunner GPS watch and Runkeeper. They’re a great way to help you improve running, but even then, they don’t actually make the act of running any more fun for beginners. So I’ve always wanted to make a real ‘running game’ that motivates you to go further and faster,” said Hon, co-creator

of Zombies, Run! Alderman, co-creator and writer for the application, said part of the inspiration to create the app came from a “beginningto-run class” she once joined, where participants were asked why they wanted to learn how to run. “One woman said: ‘to escape the zombie horde,’ which became a sort of class joke; We’d say it all the time,” Alderman said. “So when Adrian said ‘running app,’ I said, ‘something where you run from the zombie horde!’, and it all came from there.” In the world of apps, Zombies, Run! has one of the much higher prices coming in at $7.99. “We think Zombies, Run! provides a huge amount of value — it might be more expensive than Angry Birds or Draw Something, but it really does get you out and running, and it’s a fraction of the price compared to a personal trainer or running club or gym membership,” Hon said. “Plus, it’s not just about training. It’s about a story that unfolds over 20+ hours — and I don’t think people would mind too much if a DVD box set or book cost just $8!” As the player continues to do missions, the story of why the apocalypse happened begins to unfold. Curiosity about why everything has happened will keep people coming back for more running to uncover the mystery.

Meyers Leonard to enter NBA draft BY GREG ZECK STAFF WRITER

Illinois men’s basketball center Meyers Leonard will not be a part of the team next season. The sophomore announced Monday evening that he will forgo his final two seasons with the Illini and declared for the NBA Draft. “This was a very difficult decision because I love the University of Illinois,” Leonard said in a press release. “But I feel the timing is right for me to follow my dream of playing in the NBA and having the opportunity to provide for my mom and family.”

Leonard’s mom suffers from back problems, and her health was widely considered to be a determining factor on whether he would stay at Illinois.

Illinois releases former national champion BY EMILY BAYCI STAFF WRITER

Tyler Mizoguchi — three-time AllAmerican, 2011 national champion on the parallel bars and runner-up on the all-around — is no longer on the Illinois men’s gymnastics team following what Illinois head coach Justin Spring called a team agreement. Mizoguchi was the collegiate gymnast to watch last spring. The then-junior competed in the all-around eight times, concluding with a near-perfect weekend at the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championships, where he claimed his national honors. “I am truly satisfied with how I did,” Mizoguchi said last April. “Now next year, I want to do better and lead my team to a national championship.” Illinois has a shot of winning its first national title in 23 years, but Mizoguchi won’t be a part of it. He was only available for interviews through email and wrote he was no longer on the team due to “personal reasons.” “It’s tough, certainly Tyler’s athletiDARYL QUITALIG THE DAILY ILLINI cism, his ability to compete is going to be Senior Tyler Mizoguchi competes during a meet at Huff Hall.

Mizoguchi wins the NCAA title on the parallel bars and is runner-up in the all-around, taking AllAmerica honors in both events.

When competing for Team USA at the Puerto Rico Cup, Mizoguchi takes the gold on the parallel bars, bronze on pommel horse and a team silver medal.

Mizoguchi is selected to the Pan American Team, joining Illinois teammates senior Paul Ruggeri and freshman C.J. Maestas and Illinois head coach Justin Spring, also the coach for the Pan American Games.

Mizoguchi helps Team USA win a bronze medal at the 2011 Pan American games in Guadalajara, Mexico. He does not advance to the finals in any events.

Mizoguchi competes in the all-around the only time of his senior season, scoring an 85.400 and finishing behind teammates Maestas and Ruggeri.

Spring begins the process of removing Mizoguchi from the Illinois men’s gymnastics team. He has conversations with Mizoguchi, who takes a break from competition.

Mizoguchi finishes 29th in the all-around at the U.S. Winter Cup Challenge and does not retain his spot on the U.S. Senior National Team.

Mizoguchi is named Illinois Most Outstanding Gymnast at the men’s gymnastics end of year banquet, after competing in the all-around eight times his junior year.

At the 2011 Visa Championships, Mizoguchi finishes 12th overall in the all-around and does not retain his spot on the U.S. Senior National Team.

After Spring fills out a petition, Mizoguchi is called up to the U.S. Senior National Team as the 16th gymnast on a typically 15man team.

Mizoguchi participates in Illinois’ senior night, a dual meet against Ohio State at Huff Hall. It is Mizoguchi’s last competition of his collegiate career.

Mizoguchi is officially removed from the Illinois men’s gymnastics team because of a team agreement.

Kentucky wins first national championship since 1998 with 67-59 victory over Kansas BY EDDIE PELLS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAVID J. PHILLIP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kentucky players celebrate their victory over Kansas in the NCAA national championship game. The Wildcats defeated the Jayhawks 67-59 in Monday’s game at the Superdome in New Orleans.

NEW ORLEANS — No matter where Anthony Davis and his buddies go to make their millions, their ol’ Kentucky home will long remember this championship season. The Wildcats hit the jackpot with their lottery picks Monday night, ignoring Davis’ bad shooting night and parlaying a roster full of NBA talent into a 67-59 victory over Kansas for the team’s eighth national title — and its first since 1998. The one-and-doners did it in a wire-to-wire victory — a little dicey at the end — to cap a season in which anything less than bringing a title back to the Bluegrass State would have been a downer. They led coach John Calipari to his first title in four trips to the Final Four with three different schools. Doron Lamb, a sophomore with fi rst-round-draft-pick possibilities, led the Wildcats (38-2) with 22 points, including back-to-back

3-pointers that put them up by 16 with 10 minutes left. The Jayhawks (32-7), kings of the comeback all season, fought to the fi nish and trimmed that deficit to five with 1:37 left. But Kentucky made five free throws down the stretch to seal the win Davis’ fellow lottery prospect, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, was another headliner, creating space for himself to score all 11 of his points in the first half. Davis, meanwhile, might have had the most dominating six-point night in the history of college basketball. He fi nished with 16 rebounds, six blocks, five assists and three steals — and made his only field goal with 5:13 left in the game. Helps when you’ve got teammates like this. Davis is the likely first pick in the draft should he choose to come out, and KiddGilchrist won’t be far behind. Another fi rst-round prospect, freshman Marquis Teague, had 14 points. And yet another, sophomore Terrence Jones, had nine

points, seven rebounds and two of Kentucky’s 11 blocked shots. Kansas also has a lottery pick in AP All-American Thomas Robinson, who finished with 18 points and 17 rebounds. The Jayhawks won the “B” League this year, as Calipari avenged a fi nal-game loss to Bill Self back in 2008 when Cal was coaching the Tigers. Not a bad season in Lawrence, though, considering where KU began. Kansas lost four of its top five scorers off last year’s roster. There were times early in the season when Self and his old buddy and mentor, Larry Brown, would stand around at practices and wonder if this was a team that could even make the tournament. It did. Won its eighth straight conference title, too. None of this, however, was for the faint of heart. The Jayhawks trailed by double digits in three of their five tournament games leading to the fi nal and played

MLB forecast: Mix of favorites, dark horses to win MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year ED EDENS Sports columnist

O

ver the past few weeks, I’ve dissected the American and National Leagues and predicted playoff teams and pennant winners. Today I’m here to lay out the favorites and dark horses for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards. AL MVP – For the first time ever, the American League will be exposed to Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder on a full-time basis. Reigning MVP Justin Verlander was the first pitcher to win the award since Dennis Eckersley in 1992 and will have a much tougher time repeating due to the boost in the league’s talent. Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez, Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera and New York’s Curtis Granderson have to be included in the conversation as well, if only for their sheer raw skill and star power, not to mention their markets. It wouldn’t be a stretch to mention the Ray’s Evan Longoria or anyone on the prolific Ranger’s offense. As for a long shot, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Carl Crawford have a massive bounce-back year and single-handedly lead the injured Red Sox into the postseason. If that happens and he puts up a .320 average, 20 home runs, 100 RBIs and 30 steal lines, it would be tough to vote against him. In the end, I see Miguel Cabrera coming away with the award after a strong season in Detroit. NL MVP – Ryan Braun is in the opposite situation of Verlander. Braun now finds himself in a league devoid of Pujols and Fielder and is in a prime situation to repeat as MVP. While his offseason troubles might cloud the minds of voters, Braun’s skill is undeniable. Matt Kemp, and even his teammate Clayton Kershaw, should make strong cases for themselves, especially if they can lead the Dodgers into the postseason. Jose Reyes and Justin Upton figure to be in the mix, while Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman could be an upset winner if the Nats make some noise in the NL East. If the Marlins are as successful as some people are predicting and the injury bug doesn’t strike, I think Reyes will run away as the MVP. AL Cy Young – Justin Verlander will be the favorite entering the year, but his incredible 2011 campaign will be almost impossible to duplicate. CC Sabathia, Jon Lester, David Price, James Shields and Ricky Romero highlight the candidates from the AL East while Felix Hernandez, Jered Weaver and Derek Holland top the rotations in the West. Of the afore-

mentioned players, King Felix is my pick to take home the award for the second time in his young career. An interesting wrinkle in the Cy Young pitcher exists due to the expected success of the Ranger’s Yu Darvish and the Ray’s Matt Moore. Both will have rookie eligibility in 2012 and could both make a strong case for both the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year honors, not to mention the MVP award as well. NL Cy Young – The National League will be just as deep, if not deeper, in the pitching department. Adam Wainwright returns to the Cardinals after recovering from Tommy John surgery and will compete against other talented pitchers in his division, such as Zack Greinke, Yovani Gallardo and Johnny Cueto. Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain will lead the Giants against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in the West, and Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay will be on the frontline of the prolific Phillies staff that will face Josh Johnson of the Marlins multiple times this year. One name to keep in mind is Johan Santana, who has not pitched in a Major League game since September of 2010. He is fully rehabbed from shoulder surgery and will be the Opening Day starter for the Mets. When healthy, Santana is one of the best in the business, and could put together another unbelievable season like the ones baseball fans were accustomed to during his days in Minnesota. While Halladay and Lee are perennial contenders, Zack Greinke will be coming off a season in which he pitched well but did not achieve the results he desired. His peripheral statistics suggest that he was unlucky and his defense let him down. With another strong campaign and high strike out numbers, Greinke will take home the Cy Young. AL Rookie of the Year – This race will boil down to three names: Matt Moore, Yu Darvish and Jesus Montero. All three will be huge contributors to their teams from Opening Day through game 162. Moore figures to throw at least 200 innings for the Rays, and Darvish plans on doing the same for the Rangers. Both flamethrowers have huge strikeout potential, but Moore will have to deal with the sluggers in the AL East, and Darvish will have to adjust to American baseball in the Texas heat after his move from Japan. Montero moves over to Seattle from New York this year after being traded for Michael Pineda and will hit in the middle of a young, talented Mariners lineup. A full season of production out of him will jumpstart the offense and give support to the pitching staff that so desperately needs it. Ultimately, Moore will be named Rookie of the Year — the sec-

With the NL losing Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, Braun is in a prime position to repeat as MVP. ond year in a row that a Rays pitcher will win the award after Jeremy Hellickson won it last year. NL Rookie of the Year – The National League won’t be as cut and dry as the American League this year. Highly-touted prospects Bryce Harper, Julio Teheran and Trevor Bauer will have to either wait for an injury or force their way into the lineup, but Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart already has the starting job

secured. Everything scouts have to say about Cozart is positive, and the Reds will rely on his bat and glove to fuel a playoff run. If Harper gets an early call-up, he could stay in the Washington outfield for the rest of the year and show off his five-tool skill set. Teheran has a log-jam of pitchers in front of him in Atlanta, but Bauer could convince the Diamondback’s front office to promote him sooner rather than lat-

er. A full season out of Bauer could prove that he belongs in the same elite class as Matt Moore. However, after a full season, Cozart will have accomplished more than his rookie competitors due to their late promotions and will take home the hardware.

began in January, Mizoguchi, Ruggeri and Maestas were in contention for spots on the national team once again and for the NCAA allaround title at the season’s end. A dual meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 was expected to be a battle between the trio, as a warm up for the U.S. Winter Cup Challenge. “All three of them have big chances of winning Big Ten or NCAA Championships in the allaround,” Spring said in January. “There’s a lot of great athletes out there, but they all stand a chance. It’s kind of an unique situation to have three of the countries top allarounders all on your own team.” Mizoguchi finished lowest of the three in that meet. Two weeks later, members of the team traveled to Las Vegas for the 2012 U.S. Winter Cup Challenge, where the gymnasts battled to retain their spots on the national team. Mizoguchi suffered a concussion in a home meet on Jan. 28 during warm ups when he hit his head on the floor, affecting his Winter Cup experience. Mizoguchi was slated to compete in the all-around but did not participate in the floor exercise because, as Mizoguchi wrote, “the doctors wouldn’t let me.” “I do feel like I should have been able to compete on everything,” he said. Mizoguchi was not placed on the U.S. Senior National Team after the Winter Cup: an indicator he will not make the national team this summer when spots on Olympic Trials and the U.S. Olympic Team are on the line. Ruggeri and Maestas were given spots on the team, along with Illinois volunteer assistant coach David Sender. After the Winter Cup, Mizoguchi’s absence from the Illinois team began. “One of the first conversations when Tyler and I really sat down after Winter Cup, I think the focus for Tyler should be academics and graduating and leaving here in a positive way,” Spring said. “I think that you can get burnt out so much of a sport that training can become such a burden that it’s not enjoyable anymore. At that point, it’s best to leave it behind. That was the direction of the original conversation.” Mizoguchi said that not making the national team affected his motivation.

every game down to the wire. They fell behind by 18 late in the first half of this one and this time, there was no big comeback to be made; not against these NBA talents. One-and-done is the new normal at Kentucky, where Adolph Rupp set a standard, Rick Pitino lived up to it for a while, then Calipari — hardly the buttoneddown type — was hired to bring back the glory. He goes for the best player, no matter what their long-term goals. He’s the coach who brings in the John Walls, Brandon Knights and Derrick Roses (at Memphis) for cups of coffee, lets them sharpen up their resumes, then happily says goodbye when it becomes obvious there’s nothing left for them to do in school. He has produced nine firstround picks in the last four drafts with a few more coming. This latest group will have an NCAA title in tow and the everlasting love of a fan base that bleeds basketball. DARYL QUITALIG THE DAILY ILLINI

Illinois’ Tyler Mizoguchi competes in his floor exercise routine at the men’s gymnastics’ Big Ten Championships - Team Competition at Huff Hall on April 1, 2011. Mizoguchi, who was kicked off the team on March 12, helped the Illini win their third consecutive Big Ten Championship. Post-Winter Cup, the only meet Mizoguchi competed in was senior night, a home dual against Ohio State on March 2. He competed on the pommel horse, parallel bars and tied for second place on rings. “That was tough,” Spring said. “Coming off Winter Cup, there were some things, but I thought certainly he deserved to compete in senior night. Looking at the overall athletic things that he’s done for this program. “At this point we were kind of on a rebuilding path still.” Spring said the rebuilding path is now done. He officially decided that Mizoguchi was no longer on the team on March 12 after evaluating him and the team as a whole. Spring said Mizoguchi did not abide by the team rules set at the beginning of each season. “You have the generalized rules,” Spring said. “Going beyond that, it’s agreed that anything that’s not conducive to the wellbeing of the team and yourself is something we need to look at and talk about.” Mizoguchi does not agree with

Spring’s decision. “It’s not a mutual agreement,” Mizoguchi wrote. “I do not agree with a lot of Coach Springs choices. This being said, he is a young coach and he will learn.” Mizoguchi acknowledged that at one point he was bringing down the team. “That was my own personal depression that I have... worked on and am now very happy,” Mizoguchi wrote. Spring is still coaching Mizoguchi as a person and academic services is still working with him, but he is not in the gym. Mizoguchi’s absence from the Illini lineup will be significant as he had high scores on all six events. The presence of Ruggeri and Maestas along with many strong specialists can help soften the loss. “Tyler at his best will be missed. ... The problem was that I wasn’t confident where he was going to be every competition this year,” Spring said. “With a national championship certainly within our grasp this year, it certainly made the deci-

sion more difficult,” he added. Spring said although Mizoguchi was a strong competitor, what had to be looked at was what happened daily in practice. Mizoguchi, who lives with senior captain and All-American Anthony Sacramento, has maintained his relationship with team members. “It sucks to not be a part of the team,” Mizoguchi wrote. “I have given so much to the team and wish I could help them on even one event at NCAA’s.” He has been training with the club gymnastics team at Kenney Gym in case there’s a chance he can still contribute. “I would still like to compete for the team, but Coach Spring does not believe it would be a good idea,” Mizoguchi wrote. “Any more information you will have to ask him.” Spring said there is no chance of Mizoguchi competing this NCAA season. If possible, Mizoguchi plans to attend as a fan. “I would say this is not how I would want to remember it,” Mizoguchi wrote. “But God has a plan

(and) this is mine I guess.” Mizoguchi has been training and focusing on his studies and even bought a new puppy four weeks ago. “I have always wanted a dog and (I) was very depressed,” Mizoguchi wrote. “She has now turned my life upside down and makes me a better person everyday.” He plans to graduate in May and is thinking about joining Cirque du Soleil. Mizoguchi is unsure if he will compete at the VISA Championships in June for a spot on the national team and in the Olympic Trials for a potential spot at the 2012 London Olympics, something that before was a strong and definite goal for him. Spring said he has left that option open, but Mizoguchi has not approached him about it. After a whirlwind year, it appears Mizoguchi’s career has fizzled away. “This was the only team for me,” he said. “I know they are very mad at me right now, but I just wish they could see where I was coming from and the pain I was in.”

LEONARD FROM PAGE 1B NBA Draft, but after he missed team workouts leading up to the end, he was not selected. Leonard is projected by many media outlets to be a top20 pick in June and could find himself in the top 15. In the statement, Leonard thanked the Orange and Blue and fans for their support. “It starts with Coach Weber, who has always believed in me,” Leonard said. “He taught me so much about the game of basketball and helped me mature as both a player and a person. I will miss all my teammates; we’ve been through so much together, and I consider them my brothers. “The future is bright here and under the direction of Coach Groce, I know they’ll be successful. Finally, I want to thank the fans for their incredible support. It was a dream come true to represent my state school and play at the Assembly Hall. “I will always be an Illini.”

Illinois baseball to face off against Bradley for midweek rematch following 6-3 victory Wednesday Illini hope to extend momentum of 3-game weekend winning streak against Braves BY ELIOT SILL STAFF WRITER

Illinois got a much-needed win on the road last Wednesday against in-state rival Bradley. The 6-3 victory came after three straight losses in which the margin of defeat was at least nine runs. Senior pitcher Nick Chmielewski held the Braves to one hit and an unearned run in six innings of work and stabilized the Illinois (15-10, 1-2 Big Ten) staff in the wake of a stretch in which it allowed 47 runs in three games. After a home sweep of Mississippi Valley State, Chmielewski will take the hill again Tuesday to face Bradley (13-11-1, 1-2 Missouri Valley) under much lighter circumstances. Illinois hosts Bradley as the teams play for the second and

fi nal time this season. “We kind of know what they’re going to throw at us, how they’re going to approach us,” junior Justin Parr said. “They’ll probably do the same thing they did the last time — probably switch pitchers every one or two innings, mix in different guys just to try to keep our offense off-balance.” Just as Chmielewski will again start for the Illini, the Braves will pitch Tory Doerr, who gave up an earned run and three hits in just two innings last Wednesday. The Braves used seven different pitchers in that game. Unlike last week, Tuesday’s contest will be Illinois’ only midweek game this week. “We’ll handle the pitching a little bit differently because we don’t have to worry about

two (midweek) games,” Illinois that, it’s something you want to head coach Dan Hartleb said. roll with, keep the momentum “If we have trouble, you have going.” more guys available, knowing That weekend roll included that you don’t have a Wednes- a diving grab by Hendrickson day game, so you may go in that turned into a double play with a little bit shorter leash on when his ensuing throw beat a when you make runner retreatchanges.” ing to second “ W e ’ v e base. already seen “It’s just one Bradley once, of those things and we won that that happened,” Bradley game, so we Hend r ick son Illinois (13-11-1, 1-2 know they’re said. “You don’t (15-10, 1-2 Big Ten) think about it, going to want Missouri Valley) Tuesday, April 3, 4:05 p.m. revenge here on and you just go Illinois Field our home field,” out there and right fielder play.

So when- time those things happen.” ever you’re winning games like The Illini stressed defense in

“This weekend we got on a little bit of a roll, won three games in a row. So whenever you’re winning games like that, it’s something you want to roll with, keep the momentum going.”

Monday’s practice, as they committed seven errors in the three weekend games and have 36 errors in 25 games this season. “Errors are going to happen, and our coaches understand that that’s part of the game,” Parr said. “But at the same time, we force errors to happen — throws that shouldn’t be made or just not doing things fundamentally. On a tough play, things are going to happen, but on routine balls and bunts, we should never make an error.” An advantage Illinois will have this week that it lacked last week is playing on its home turf. “We won’t have to travel before we play a day game, which is always a little bit tough,” Parr said. “You get right off the bus, and you pretty much just play.”

cutter dispatched to meet the stricken vessel. The injured were Jane Hitchens, 50, a doctor from Kent, England, who may have suffered broken ribs; and Nik Brbora, 29, a software engineer from London who may have suffered a sprained pelvis, race spokeswoman DeeDee Taft said. Thirteen people were aboard the yacht. Two others who suffered minor injuries decided to continue sailing, Taft said. Max Wilson, 62, a farmer from Queensland, Australia, also may have suffered broken ribs, and Burkes, 47, the helmsman at the time, sustained a back injury.

“drill” for such an event as losing a steering wheel in heavy seas and that the repair took a matter of minutes. “Their training kicked in,” Taylor said. Taylor said typically the hardest leg of the race is crossing the North Atlantic. “To get this close to the finish is a tough one to swallow,” Taylor said. “I’m disappointed for them.” The U.S. Coast Guard sent out a long-range HC-130 Hercules aircraft on Saturday for a rescue effort, but the rough seas and strong winds thwarted an attempt to lower rescuers. Instead, medical supplies were dropped on board and a

reported. “We had no steering and crew were falling all over the boat.” Coetzer said the crew managed to quickly replace the steering wheel with a tiller and got the yacht under control by pulling down “the remains of our main sail” and raising a much smaller “storm jib,” slowing the boat’s progress considerably. “We were making good, good speed,” Coetzer said of conditions before the accident, “surfing at 15 - 20 knots.” The yacht is now traveling at about half that speed. Assistant race director Justin Taylor, a two-time skipper in the contest, said that crews

SAN FRANCISCO — A battered yacht and its bruised crew limped into port Monday after a giant wave smashed over the stern with such force that it carried away the boat’s steering wheel and knocked the crew about like bowling pins. A Coast Guard cutter reached the Geraldton Western Australia, which was damaged about 400 miles off the San Francisco coast Sunday, and removed two injured crew members while the rest of the sailors decided to press on to finish the longest leg of an around-the-world race. The 68-foot yacht was expected to dock in the wee hours Tues-

day morning and become the last of 10 boats to complete a 5,680-mile trek across the Pacific. “The sea was alive with rage,” the boat’s captain Juan Coetzer told race organizers, who posted his comments online. “Then at our watch change, just before the sun came up (Saturday), a monstrous foaming swell broke over our stern.” The wave pushed the helmsman Mark Burkes into the steering wheel and its pedestal in gale-force winds of more than 50 knots. “The water had so much force in it that it pushed Mark into the helm, snapping the pedestal clean off,” Coetzer
