GEO protests local factory owned by billionaire Shahid Khan Complaints about health, safety conditions at factory vocalized BY MICHAEL KOZUCHOWSKI DAYTIME ASSISTANT EDITOR

A number of local activist groups, including the Undergraduate-Graduate Alliance, and the Graduate Employees Organization, held a rally outside Huff Hall on Thursday afternoon to protest working conditions at the nearby FlexN-Gate factory, a producer of automobile parts. Owned by local billionaire Shahid Khan — a University alumnus, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and major donor to the University — the Flex-NGate facility, located at 1306 E. University Ave., as well as other locations, has failed to provide proper health and safety conditions for their workers, protestors say. One of the organizers of Thursday’s rally, Veer Kothari, member of the UGA and senior in Business, said that the rally’s main goal was to spread awareness. “Awareness is the key,” Kothari said. “If he (Khan) sees people ramping up the pressure ... he will take action.” Beginning in December of 2011, local Flex-N-Gate employees started to fi le complaints with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administra-

tion, according to members of the GEO. Since then, employees have made accusations of more than 30 violations, members say. Kothari said one main concern is the carcinogenic compound used to coat bumpers, the chemical hexavalent chromium, which comes from chromium. She said Flex-N-Gate workers have objected to the lack of training and protective equipment provided to them as they come into contact with these harmful chemicals on a daily basis. The United Auto Workers has already unionized other FlexN-Gate plants and has been trying to organize a union at the local factory for almost a year. In an effort to facilitate unionization, the UAW called out to the local community Thursday for support. “We found that the only way for our organization to really have a voice is through collective bargaining,” said Peter Campbell, speaker at Thursday’s rally and GEO communications officer. He also stressed the importance of various groups on campus “showing solidarity to each other.” Part of the difficulty stems from the fact that Khan’s “philanthropy and rewards hide the faults of Flex-N-Gate,” said Josh Schwenk, member of the UGA and senior in LAS. In addition to donations made to the Champaign Public

Sexual Health Peers works to extend STD awareness, education BY CLAIRE EVERETT STAFF WRITER

Since 2005, there have been 198 new cases of HIV and AIDS in Champaign County, according to the Greater Community AIDS Project of East Central Illinois. Mike Benner, executive director of the organization, or GCAP, said the rise in the amount of cases over the years could be due to increased testing. Benner, who has been HIVpositive for nine years, said his life has been altered since his diagnosis. He said he has seen the face of HIV/AIDS change throughout the years. When he was in college, he attended one funeral every few weeks because a friend had passed away from AIDS. He said even though medications have been developed to keep the disease under control, there is still no cure. “I think there needs to be awareness that HIV/AIDS is even out there,” Benner said. “It still is something to be reckoned with.” He said many young people associate people with AIDS as having a “gaunt” look, but since the average person with AIDS doesn’t look like that anymore, the disease has “gone under the table” and people have begun to view it as a “manageable illness” instead of a threat.

University Police self-defense program empowers potential victims on campus BY STEVEN VAZQUEZ STAFF WRITER

A self defense class run by the University Police Department was deemed Program of the Year at the second annual women’s graduation and awards ceremony hosted by the Women’s Resources Center on Thursday night. The classes, which use a pro-

gram called the Rape Aggression Defense, or RAD, systems as its curriculum, was recognized for this honor. The ceremony was held on the fourth floor of the Illini Media Center, and about 50 students, faculty and staff members attended. The RAD program, which is offered at many colleges across

the nation, has been in existence since 1989 and first came to the University in 1996. For the past 16 years, RAD has offered female students a comprehensive course of self-defense techniques, which begins with awareness and prevention tactics and then progress to teaching hands-on defense. Sgt. Joan Fiesta of the Universi-

ty Police Department said teaching the course has been one of the more rewarding experiences she has had on campus. She said the course looks to teach women how to strategize and utilize their strengths should they encounter some type of attack.

The group leads five different workshops about different aspects of sex and relationships throughout the year. While the group often works together with GCAP, Benner said they are hoping to develop a separate registered student organization that specifically focuses on AIDS awareness, prevention, and education. “That’s the only way we’re going to be able to get some influence on campus,” Benner said. “We can put up as many posters as we want, but without someone out there really fighting for us, it’s very difficult.” Sara Salmon, Sexual Health Peers vice president and junior

Come Friday and Saturday, thousands of runners will be ready for the fourth annual Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon. And so will the local police departments, officers say. Police department officials say they are prepared to handle the influx of people and any problems that may arise during the races, particularly with traffic. About 20,000 people had registered to participate in the races by Thursday evening, said Joe Seeley of the Illinois Marathon. Lt. Roy Acree of the Uni-

BY AIXIN LI CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The University is testing a new system called the “Emergency Response Recommendation” this summer with assistance from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This trial program will be tested to ensure that students and instructors are familiar with their classrooms and buildings, and that they know how to cope during real emergencies. Lt. Todd Short of the University police said he wants to ensure that students and faculty are aware of emergency procedures. “Eventually we want to make sure that every student and every faculty member in every classroom on campus takes a couple

of extra seconds to familiarize themselves with the emergency exit locations and how to evacuate, whatever room they are in,” Short said. This summer, some courses will pilot a new emergency response plan. Instructors will receive a one-page document about how to evacuate their classroom, the nearest shelters and safe places to hide during an attack, Short said. “Recommendations (in the program) are sound based upon nationally recognized response recommendations to emergencies,” said Craig Grant, associate director of Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety. “This is may be the best opportunity we can see to help inform our students of things they should do in

an emergency.” Grant, who will operate this system with Short, said instructors may distribute these documents to their students on the first day of class, but the University still needs approval and support from faculty members. A couple of representatives, including students and instructors, will be picked out to evaluate this system at the end of the summer. “Once we have that (support) we hope that we will have enough input to show that this is doable, and if it is doable then we can address other concerns and try to get this rolled out so then it would be offered at the first session of each course offered on campus in each semester,” Grant said. Some students expressed a

desire for more guidance regarding emergency safety. Olivia Altmayer, freshman in LAS, said she expects the University to give students more practical guidance regarding public safety in programs or workshops. She said she was concerned about the safety in her computer science class. “There were 300 of us but only one major exit and two side exits,” she said. “I don’t know whether everyone could have gotten out soon enough if there really had been an emergency,” When asked about her opinion towards the new system that is coming out this summer, Altmayer said she thinks that it might be effective because a document handed out by the professor may grab everyone’s attention.

Demonstrators demand stronger borders

FORT MEADE, Md. — A military judge refused on Thursday to dismiss the most serious charge against an Army private accused in the biggest leak of government secrets in U.S. history. Col. Denise Lind rejected a defense motion to dismiss the charge of “aiding the enemy” during a pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning. The charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. Manning also faces 21 other counts. In seeking dismissal of the most serious offense, defense attorney David Coombs had argued that the charge didn’t properly allege that Manning intended to help al-Qaida when he allegedly sent hundreds of thousands of classified Iraq and Afghanistan war reports and State Department diplomatic cables to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Manning stated in an online chat with a confidant-turnedinformant that he leaked the

information because, “I want people to see the truth.” Prosecutors had argued that Manning knew the enemy would see the material when it appeared on WikiLeaks, regardless of his intentions. Lind said Thursday that prosecutors must prove during trial that Manning had knowledge he was giving information to the enemy. If they fail to do so, Lind said she would entertain further motions from the defense. The 24-year-old Oklahoma native was ordered court-martialed after he was accused of downloading the war logs and video clips, and then sending them to WikiLeaks. He was working as an intelligence analyst in Baghdad when authorities say he copied classified material from government computers in late 2009 and early 2010. The material WikiLeaks published included cockpit video of a 2007 U.S. Apache helicopter attack that killed a number of civilians, including a Reuters news photographer and his driver. The U.S. government says the

The UAW and local community organizations place primary focus on securing a safe work environment. They also advocate for the strengthening of relationships between community organizations and those in need. “The workers have done an amazing job and have been really courageous,” Campbell said. He said it is important that the group helps to “stop intimidation of workers who speak on behalf of the union.”

in LAS, said while sexual health isn’t often discussed, the group is trying to start more conversations about it as well as recommend getting tested for STDs every six months. “There is encouragement of getting your teeth cleaned every six months, but yet your sexual health isn’t something that’s frequently talked about,” Salmon said. “This is crazy considering STD statistics have gone up in the last five years.” Salmon said the stigma and language that is associated with HIV/ AIDS, and even STDs in general, is that they are “dirty” diseases, which is why people stray from getting tested at all. “There is no reason not to get tested because if you have something you can pass it on so easily,” Salmon said. “It’s not only responsible, but it’s also logical.” To raise funding, GCAP hosts an annual art exhibition called Artists Against AIDS Show and Sale, which will take place April 26-29 at the McKinley Fitness Center at 500 W. Church St. in Champaign. Over 200 artists will show and sell their work at the 20th annual event, with 50 percent of the proceeds benefiting GCAP. The event is free and open to the public. Benner said interested members of the public can go to www. ArtistsAgainstAIDS.info for more information.

civilian deaths were accidental. Prosecutors acknowledged in court Wednesday that the helicopter video was not classified, although he allegedly got it from a military computer network reserved for classified material. He is charged with “having unauthorized possession” of the video clip. Manning has been in pretrial confi nement since he was charged in May 2010. He has been held since last April at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. His earlier treatment at a Marine Corps base caused support for him to swell. The Quantico, Va., brig commander kept Manning confined 23 hours a day in a single-bed cell, citing safety and security concerns. For several days in March 2011, he was forced to sleep naked, purportedly for injury prevention, before he was issued a suicide-prevention smock. Manning’s supporters have raised funds to place posters in the Washington Metro subway this week portraying him as a whistleblower, patriot and hero.

CLIFF OWEN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning departs a courthouse in Fort Meade, Md., on March 15. A military judge refused on Thursday to dismiss the most serious charge against Manning, accused in the biggest leak of government secrets in U.S. history.

“As police officers responding to crimes, we usually show up at least three minutes late. Very rarely are we there when the crime is occurring,” Fiesta said. “This (course) provides a potential victim with skills to escape before they find themselves victims of crime. It empowers people.” Esther Bier, sophomore in LAS, said that the RAD class has been very informational because there is an extensive lecture aspect to the course. She said she believes that this program is very important and should become more known on campus. “It’s not just about physical defense,” Bier said. “It’s also about how to protect your home, things to watch out for or good tactics to keep in mind if there is suspicious activity. I think it’s really important that people are aware of how to protect themselves and not have to rely on anybody else for protection.” Becky Lauher, a patrol officer for University police, taught the class when it first started here in 1996. She said the program has grown tremendously since then because they now offer classes for children as well as a program for men that began this year. “We give (the students) choices of what to do if they are in a situation where they’re attacked, so it’s very rewarding,” Lauher said. “The confidence that our students have when they graduate from the program leaves us instructors with a great feeling.” The RAD course is offered every semester on campus. Students who are interested can find information on the Public Safety website.

If candidates hope to get student votes, they can’t ignore rising debt TOLU TAIWO Opinions columnist

A

nyone who tells you a college education is priceless is simply kidding you.  Don’t get me wrong: I love being at this University, but many students — and myself — grumble about the tuition cost on a constant basis. And with the tuition rising a good majority of students paying loans, many students, especially prospective students, are wondering what the real value and price of an undergraduate degree is. No one is rolling in dough right now. And many of the presidential candidates have stepped up and taken notice. President Barack Obama traveled to the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill on Tuesday. He urged Congress to stop the loan rate of 3.4 percent from doubling to 6.8 percent. If he and other lawmakers fail to act, students everywhere will weep July 1. OK. So America already owes $867 billion in student loans — yes, $163 billion more

than credit card debt. Individual grad students from public schools have $12,300 in debt. Our school’s average debt per student is about $21,000. Sorry to be gloomy, but a 6.8 percent loan rate may destroy us. As of right now, many of us may not be paying for our undergraduate bill, at least not all of it because of scholarships or the generosity of our parents. But any changes in the rate will affect me — and many students — in the future as well. In about one year, I’m going to be off at grad school, and Mr. and Mrs. Taiwo will not foot the tuition. I’m going to fork over about $30,000 a year, and I’m sure I can’t pay it alone without some form of loans.  This plan of keeping loans isn’t all that new. Gov. Mitt Romney has previously brought up the idea of keeping the current rate. The difference between Romney’s proposed plan and Obama’s is ... oh wait. Is there one? And at this point, does it really matter? No. Because the most important point is that someone needs to make sure we don’t break our backs paying loans. It could be a staunch Democrat, an ultraconservative Republican or a Green Party member.

I’m at the age where I’ll take whatever I can get, as long as they make students a priority. I literally cannot afford to be too picky beyond that.  That’s not to say that both sides haven’t used different tactics to make the other seem like the antihero of the student loans. Romney has alluded to Obama’s leadership as the cause for a weak economy, and Obama used his humble background to appeal to the North Carolina students Tuesday. Apparently he finished paying off loans when we started dealing with acne, hormones and teenage angst. I understand that it’s election season, and all parties need to take stances and point fingers. But we need to weed through all of this and figure out who will most likely be on the side of our needs.  During the heat of election season, make sure you pay attention to the candidates who can offer us the best life as students (in addition to offering us the best life financially). Keep loyal to your partisan (or strongly nonpartisan) views, by all means, but make sure you vote where the money is.

THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID

The truth about guy-girl texting: It’s not so complicated after all Students unmask communication and its simplicity MELANIE STONE Opinions columnist

“O

h, my gosh! He finally texted me. That only took two hours. I’ll wait three to text back.” I couldn’t help but laugh as I listened to the girls sitting behind me at the Undergraduate Library (UGL). It was a conversation I’ve heard many times before. I, too, am guilty of saying the exact same thing. Guy-girl texting is an art, and our cell phones are our paintbrushes. For girls like me, it is a meticulous task that requires lots of time and energy. The critical decisions we must make are endless: Ellipses or period? Uppercase or lowercase? “You” or “U”?

If we make a mistake, then we jeopardize a potential relationship. Texting matters. Right? The girls at the library seemed to think so. I, however, had a hunch that boys don’t care as much we think they do. Curious, I devised a plan: I would walk around the UGL and ask guys what they thought about texting. It’s a big deal to us, but what about them? Barry Trilla, senior in Business, likes to keep things casual. “When I’m texting a girl, I’ll read over it once before I send it,” he said. “I want to be friendly and not come on too strong, but I don’t want to over-think a text.” A quick re-read, and then Trilla hits send. A lot of girls are not like that at all. Instead, we will call our other friends for help: “Okay, so he asked what’s up. Should I say ‘nothing much’ or ‘not a lot’?” Trilla isn’t the only guy who is laid-back about texting. When I asked Marshawn Lyles, senior in LAS, how much thought he puts into his texts, his response was simple: “Not much.” The senior men in the UGL seemed to be confirm-

ing my suspicions. Ilir Sulejmani, junior in LAS, was the exception. “I’m kind of cheesy,” he admitted, smiling. “I think out everything. The punctuation marks and the little smiley faces? Yep, those are planned.” When it comes to timing, however, Sulejmani isn’t into the waiting game. Neither is Mike Kirchschlager, freshman in DGS. “Usually, if a girl waits an hour to respond to one of my texts, I’ll have already forgotten about what we were talking about,” he said. I told Kirchschlager about the way we women operate: waiting hours, or even days to respond to a guy’s text. He laughed and shook his head. Lyles had a similar response. “I feel like, if it takes her that long, then I must not have been that important to respond to.” Right then and there, I realized my hypothesis was reinforced. I made a mental note to tell every female I know that guys don’t buy into the timing games. By taking forever to respond, we aren’t playing hard to get. We’re simply confusing the boys. What’s more, the amount

of time we put into our flirtatious texting is ridiculous. Perhaps we should take a few tips from the men of the UGL. They aren’t obsessing over our texts, so why should we freak out about theirs? I walked back to the table where the girls were sitting, eager to share my discoveries with them. “Hi, you don’t know me,” I said hurriedly as I sat

down across from them. “But you know how you were talking about waiting a few hours to respond to that guy?” They stared. “Um, yeah...” the blonde replied, her brow furrowed. “Well, don’t. Respond right away. Otherwise, he’ll lose interest. Guys don’t understand the way we think,” I proclaimed, fighting the urge

to stand up on my chair and shout. Okay, okay, I’m kidding. I didn’t creepily approach the girls, although I probably should have. Instead, I’ll cling to the hope that they will read this column and learn the truth about texting, as told by the men of the UGL.

Individual change in thought can help decrease world violence At

the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates on Tuesday, the UIC Forum was filled with individuals currently confronting some of the most grievous atrocities in the world today: denial of basic human rights, injustice and oppression. The themes present in the Summit transcended the circumstances of the day, and as I listened to some of the world’s most renowned philanthropists and leaders extrapolate on the urgency for eliminating systematic violence, I wondered about the realistic application of the sentiment. The Summit was in honor of those who have paved the way for change, but their message was that the path is not for them alone. Change happens because individuals make decisions about what they can do, and the Nobel laureates in the room were not different because of extraordinary ability, but rather because of extraordinary tenacity. As Lech Walesa, former president of Poland, put it, change will be the result of the efforts of the individuals with courage and boldness — people

who are willing to make mistakes, and those who refuse to accept the status quo if they feel it’s not acceptable. The panelists echoed the importance of young people in laying the foundation for a more just society: Adolescence is when children start to establish their views of the world and when they are most eager to internalize the values they are taught. Professor and laureate Jody Williams said that lasting change will only be possible when we refuse to teach history through the glorification of war, and Caryl M. Stern of the United Nations Children’s Fund stated that the way children are conditioned to think about world peace is perhaps the most crucial aspect of progress. Perhaps some of the world’s most effectual thinkers are those who refuse to become discouraged in the face of humanity’s disturbing shortcomings. The tenacity of the laureates is not something to be admired from afar, but is to be seen as a call to action. The ideas resonated with the audience because of their universality, and one of

the loftiest of achievements, the Nobel Peace Prize, was given a uniquely humanistic touch. The accessibility of the message was an indication that there is something that everyone can contribute. The tragedies facing our generation are vast, but so is the power that can be harnessed by those willing to step outside of their comfort zones to do what they can in their own contexts. It is not constructive to fear that your contribution will be too little because then you will be paralyzed into inaction.  Throughout the seminars, I noticed that among the assorted former presidents, activists and other distinguished individuals in the auditorium, the camera continuously settled on Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and pioneer of microcredit. Through his work with Grameen Bank and the values that he has embodied, Yunus has become a symbol of the

mobilization of individual power among the most impoverished tier of society. His ideology was tangible in the bottom-up approach of the dialogue at the Summit, which was noticeably bereft of aloof assertions about sweeping legislation.  Williams emphasized that peace is not simply the absence of armed conflict — it is the way that diversity is managed and incorporated, it is an emphasis on equity, it is the way individuals feel included as part of the whole. It will start with how we conceptualize the kind of world we want to live in as we build and rebuild it together. We cannot utilize the same thinking that we did when we created the problem, and the first step will be changing how we think about the way our actions will set an example — the way they will project onto the world and recycle into its collective environment.  Injustice will only flourish if individuals enable it.

The question is no longer who are you to say something, but how can you afford not to?

Stephen Goose of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines reiterated that the Summit was not to establish a strategy for achieving world peace. Rather, it was a forum to initiate a dialogue about reversing the mentality that drives divisions between people. It was a call to reexamine the aggregate of thought processes that have manifest themselves in wars, in cyclical poverty and in denial of basic human rights. It was a challenge to recognize our desensitization toward the prevalence of violence and preventable illness, and to inexhaustibly resist a sense of defeatism and complacency. The point is not to become disillusioned by the problem, but to become inspired by the individual power that can be harnessed in establishing a basis for change through promoting equity. The issues remained as the crowd streamed from the seminar into Chicago’s near West Side. A skeptic would say that the dialogue was out of touch with what at times seems to be a potentially disheartening reality. The issues that were dis-

cussed — rape as a tool of war, arms proliferation, the oppression of dictatorships — are so entrenched that they are difficult to conceptualize, let alone alleviate. To a skeptic, these talks might have been a brief insulation from the crushing weight of a world inundated with problems older than any individual — of wounds developed and calcified over time. If they were easy issues to fix, they would already be solved. The state of the world today is the result of a way of thinking that has become such an intuitive part of cognition that is difficult to disavow.    However, the point was not to present the challenges as insurmountable, but to recognize our own power in stymieing their inertia. The message of the summit was one of reassurance for anyone who has questioned the veracity of the statement “the change starts with you.” The question is no longer who are you to say something, but how can you afford not to?

Ohio mother thrown out of Boy Scouts for being lesbian BY JOHN SEEWER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The first-graders in Ohio Pack 109’s Tiger Scouts didn’t know or care that their den mother was a lesbian — at least not until the Boy Scouts of America threw her out over the organization’s ban on gays. Now, parents who were aware of Jennifer Tyrell’s sexual orientation well before she took the boys on campouts and helped them carve race cars for the annual Pinewood Derby have rallied to her defense in a case that has reignited the debate over the Scouts’ policy. “I teach my children to judge people on their actions,” said Rob Dunn, a father in Bridgeport, a village of about 2,000 across the Ohio River from Wheeling, W.Va. “Whether you agree with their lifestyle or not.” The Boy Scouts of America, whose oath calls for members to be “morally straight,” maintains that as a private organization it has the right to exclude gays and atheists from its ranks. That stance was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 but has led many state and local governments to deny support for the Scouts. Male scout leaders who are gay have long been barred, but

instances of women being excluded are not well-documented and probably rare. A lesbian couple in Vermont were told two years ago that they could no longer be involved with their son’s Scout troop. Because of the policy, Tyrell said she only reluctantly allowed her 7-year-old son to join up in Bridgeport, where she lives with her partner and their four children. Told, she said, by the local cub master that it didn’t matter that she is a lesbian, she was drafted to lead the pack in September. Tyrell told parents at their first meeting about her sexual orientation. Some already knew her because she had coached youth baseball and volunteered at school, organizing class parties and reading to children. “She wasn’t trying to hide anything,” said Dunn, whose son is among the dozen or so members of the boys-only pack. “Nobody I know of has ever made a single complaint against her.” Tyrell said she was removed in April, right after she was asked to take over as treasurer of the local Boy Scout troop — which oversees Tiger Scouts, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts — and she raised questions about the finances. She said the Boy Scout Council for the region told her she had to

Study shows that exercise helps prevent reoccurrence of cancer BY MIKE STOBBE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA — A cancer diagnosis often inspires people to exercise and eat healthier. Now the experts say there’s strong evidence that both habits may help prevent the disease from coming back. New guidelines issued Thursday by the American Cancer Society urge doctors to talk to their cancer patients about eating right, exercising and slimming down if they’re too heavy. That’s not something most doctors do, said Dr. Omer Kucuk, an Emory University oncologist who has researched the effect of nutrition on prostate cancer. They’re focused on surgery, chemotherapy or other treatments for their patients, he added. “Usually the last thing on their mind is to talk about diet and exercise,” Kucuk said. Cancer society officials have long encouraged healthy eating and exercise as a way to prevent certain cancers. They and others have tried to spread that gos-

pel to cancer survivors as well. Indeed, the cancer society has a certification program for fitness professionals who work with cancer survivors. But until now, the group didn’t think there was enough research to support a strong statement for cancer survivors. Being overweight or obese has long been tied to an increased risk of several types of cancer, including cancers of the colon, esophagus, kidney, pancreas and — in postmenopausal women — breast. But there hadn’t been much evidence on the effects of diet and exercise for people who had had cancer. The last five years saw more than 100 studies involving cancer survivors, many of them showing that exercise and/or a healthy diet was associated with lower cancer recurrence rates and longer survival. “We’ve got enough data now to make these recommendations,” said Colleen Doyle, the organization’s director of nutrition and physical activity.

The cancer society also notes that some people may be too weak at times for vigorous exercise. But experts say that even modest activities, like lifting soup cans while watching TV, can help. Women seem to take to exercise and diet recommendations more readily than men, or to push their spouses to follow the advice, some doctors said. “I find women to be very, very proactive,” said Dr. Allen Lawhead, a gynecologic oncologist at DeKalb Medical Center. “Men, we traditionally go back into our man cave and hide.” For another cancer survivor, exercise came easy but eating healthy was a challenge. During chemotherapy, nausea is common and food can seem unappetizing. “The key thing is to eat period — whatever you can get down and keep down,” said Bob Falkenberg of Alpharetta, Ga., who was a marathoner and longdistance cyclist before he was diagnosed with leukemia.

New gas drilling method raises concerns BY JIM SUHR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. LOUIS — The Illinois Senate unanimously signed off on a measure Thursday that would regulate debated technology used to reach previously inaccessible natural gas reserves deep underground, a method that worries some environmentalists because of possible pollution from mixtures of water, sand and chemicals. The Senate’s 54-0 passage of the bill addressing hydraulic fracturing — commonly called fracking — comes amid reports that energy companies are in a torrid push to explore possible drilling sites in southern Illinois, long known for its rich belowground coal and oil reserves. Now headed to the state House, Senate Bill 3280 would allow the state’s Department of Natural Resources to regulate hydraulic fracturing that cracks open fissures in southern Illinois’ rough-

ly 4,500-foot-deep New Albany Shale and other formations to get to trapped oil and natural gas. The legislation also would require energy companies to disclose the chemical makeup of the fracturing fluids and to test the integrity of the cement and steel well casings meant to protect groundwater during drilling. In hydraulic fracturing, which has been around for decades, millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals are pumped into wells to break up underground rock formations and create escape routes for the oil and gas. In recent years, the industry has learned to combine the practice with the ability to drill horizontally into beds of shale, layers of fine-grained rock that in some cases have trapped ancient organic matter that has cooked into oil and gas. By doing so, drillers have unlocked natural gas deposits across the East, South and Mid-

BILLY FORE

west that are large enough to supply the U.S. for decades. Natural gas prices have dipped to decadelow levels, reducing customer bills and prompting manufacturers who depend on the fuel to expand operations in the U.S. Yet environmental groups and other critics believe the chemicals have polluted drinking water supplies. The industry says there’s no proof of that. It’s unclear how productive any drilling would be in southern Illinois’ New Albany Shale region, but the clear interest in prospecting that land drove state Sen. Michael Frerichs, an east-central Illinois Democrat, to introduce the regulatory measure that advanced Thursday. Frerichs said the legislation seeks to ensure transparency and accountability in how companies ultimately deploy in Illinois the technology already used elsewhere, “not to shut down the emerging industry.”

Israel Week concludes Week of events celebrated Israeli independence BY THOMAS THOREN STAFF WRITER

University students celebrated traditional Israeli customs throughout campus and the surrounding community this week. Israel Illini Vice President Julie Levitt, senior in LAS, said Israel Week was “extraordinarily successful” yet again this year. She said all scheduled events went off without any trouble as Israel Illini and other registered student organizations drew nearly 2,000 students to the 64th anniversary celebration of Israel’s independence, also know as Yom Ha’atzmaut, held Monday on the Quad. Attendance has increased from the approximately 1,000 people who attended last year, said Erez Cohen, Israel programs coordinator for Illini Hillel. Alli Gattari, freshman in LAS, said she attended Monday’s celebration and free falafel giveaway on the Quad because she wanted to learn more about Israeli culture and customs. She said she learned about Israel Week after signing up to work at Hillel on Fridays next semester to support her friends who cannot work Friday evenings because they observe Shabbat. Gattari said she attended the “informative” event to learn more for when she begins her job in the fall. Later Wednesday evening, Israel Illini held a fundraising event at Fire Station Pizza and Pub for the non-governmental organization Jewish Hearts for Africa. The event raised about $500 for the organization that is working to provide a medical clinic

The event was cosponsored by Phi Beta Sigma and the African Cultural Association. This was the first time Israel Illini teamed up with Jewish Hearts for Africa. Elsewhere in Champaign, Sinai Temple held its own Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration Wednesday evening. It featured a dinner and a discussion about water rights and conservation projects in Israel, said Stephanie Pregent, education director for Sinai Temple. She said the temple also celebrated a special solidarity Shabbat service last Friday that featured songs from Sinai’s religious school students. Cohen said Israel Week will con-

clude Friday evening with Hillel’s Israeli Shabbat at 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Despite the controversy that sometimes pervades discussions about Israel, Cohen said this was avoided throughout the week because he and other Israel supporters let those with opposing views “do their things and exercise their right to freedom of speech without interrupting them.” He said he hopes this model will yield positive results in the future as well. “If we develop a healthy way for people to showcase their opinions ... as long as we don’t actively go and bash their events ... there might be an opening for discussion in the future,” Cohen said.

Violence Against Women Act divides parties BY LAURIE KELLMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Washington — Senate leaders on Thursday overcame the gender politics that had roiled debate over the government’s main domestic violence program and agreed to a vote on renewing it before heading home for a week’s vacation. The Violence Against Women Act, approved and renewed unanimously in the past, had for weeks been the subject of haggling between the parties. Democrats accused Republicans of standing in the way, engaging in a “war against women.” That phrase is part of the Democrats’ effort to protect their

edge among women voters in this presidential and congressional election year. Republicans denied they tried to block the renewal. They said they wanted to lower the cap for visas of abused immigrants, remove mentions of protecting gays, lesbians and transgender people, and change provisions protecting Native American women. GOP lawmakers complained the changes were designed to distract voters from issues Democrats would rather not discuss, such as rising gas prices and the struggling economy. “We face an abundance of hard choices,” said Arizona Sen. John

McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee and a leading supporter of Republican hopeful Mitt Romney this year. “Divisive slogans and declaring of phony wars are intended to avoid those hard choices and to escape paying a political price for doing so.” President Barack Obama and his Democrats, eager to protect their wide lead among female voters, have tried to portray Republican stands on social policies from Medicaid to contraception as evidence of a GOP “war against women.” Women have accounted for the majority of voters in presidential election years and they provided Obama’s margin of victory in 2008.

TWO ILLINI DRAFTED IN 1ST ROUND

Past suggests Mercilus’ success in NFL DAN WELIN Football columnist

A.J. Jenkins (8), at left, was picked 30th by the San Francisco 49ers. Whitney Mercilus (85) was picked 26th by the Houston Texans.

No. 30 overall pick Jenkins: ‘It just caught me off guard’ BY JEFF KIRSHMAN SPORTS EDITOR

As

Whitney Mercilus recovered from nearly dropping out of Thursday’s first round of the NFL Draft, A.J. Jenkins was busy getting ambushed by his cousins. “It just caught me off guard,” Jenkins said Friday over a teleconference. “I was in the bathroom. My cousin ran the phone to the door. It was just crazy. It was a blessing.” The Houston Texans drafted Mercilus — last season’s Ted Hendricks Award winner as the best defensive end in the country — with the 26th pick in Thursday’s draft, while former Illinois wide receiver Jenkins — a 2011 First-Team All-Big Ten Conference selection and semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award — was the San Francisco 49ers’ selection with the 30th pick. Mercilus watched the Draft from his home in Akron, Ohio, while Jenkins hosted friends and family at his Florida residence. After it appeared that no Illinois football player

could be drafted in the first round, the two were swept off the board within five picks of each other. A slew of mock drafts leading up to the draft projected Mercilus to go in the late teens to early 20s. Jenkins was expected by many to go in the second round at the earliest. “I didn’t think I would drop that far,” said Mercilus, who said he started getting nervous when the Chicago Bears opted to go with former Boise State defensive end Shea McClellin instead of him with the No. 19 pick. Jenkins said his agent told him that he could possibly get drafted late in the first round, but he wasn’t reassured until he received the phone call. “My agent told me I could be a late first-rounder, but I was just watching the Draft like any typical dude would,” Jenkins said. “I saw the San Jose area code and new it would be San Francisco.” Illinois was the only school other than Alabama and Stanford to have two players picked in the first round. The Colts selected Standford quarterback

Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick. The Crimson Tide won the 2011 national championship and the Cardinal made an appearance in the Orange Bowl. Illinois defeated UCLA in December’s Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Not since 1996 have two Illini been selected in the first round of an NFL Draft, when Jacksonville and Arizona selected Kevin Hardy and Simeon Rice, respectively. Illinois now leads the Big Ten with five first round picks in the last five years, followed by Ohio State with four. “Illinois always has talent. It’s just going to keep on coming,” Mercilus said. “Definitely look for the same thing next year.” Mercilus joins a Houston defense that in 2011 ranked fourth in points allowed per game (17.4), second in yards allowed per game (285.7), third in pass yards allowed per game (189.7), fourth in rushing yards allowed per game (96.0) and sixth

another crop of NFL hopefuls waited to hear their names called by Commissioner Roger Goodell on national television Thursday, for the fourth time in five seasons a member of the Illinois football team was one of those hopefuls. That hopeful, joined by another surprise Illini, gave the Illinois football program something that hasn’t happened since Kevin Hardy and Simeon Rice went No. 2 and No. 3 overall in the 1996 NFL Draft — two first round picks. With the 26th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans took former Illini defensive end Whitney Mercilus, and with the 30th pick the San Francisco 49ers took former wide receiver A.J. Jenkins. In what has been somewhat of a trend since 2008, Mercilus and Jenkins were the fourth and fifth Illini selected in the first round in the past five years, joining Rashard Mendenhall (23rd to Pittsburgh in 2008), Vontae Davis (25th to Miami in 2009) and Corey Liuget (18th to San Diego in 2011). At 6-foot-4, 261 pounds, Mercilus’ physical traits suggest he may not be nearly as disruptive at the professional level as he was in college. Taking a look back to the last three drafts, the Washington Redskins took Brian Orakpo 13th overall in 2009, the New York Giants took Jason Pierre-Paul 15th overall in 2010 and the San Francisco 49ers took Aldon Smith seventh overall in 2011. Those three current NFL players are between 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-5 and weigh between 250 and 280 pounds, respectively. At their respective combines in the 40-yard dash, Orakpo, Smith and PierrePaul ran between 4.74 and 4.78 seconds while in the bench press, Orakpo pumped 31 reps, Smith 20 and Pierre-Paul 19. Combined, they have played six NFL seasons and racked up 64.5 sacks during that time. Pierre-Paul and Orakpo have been selected to the Pro Bowl, and although Smith was labeled as a snub for this past year’s team, he still had 14 sacks as a rookie. Mercilus performed well at this year’s combine, running a 4.68 in the 40-yard dash — the fourth-fastest time among defensive linemen — and had 27 reps on the bench. His 2011 campaign, in which he was a unanimous All-American, leading the nation in sacks (16) and forced fumbles (9), however has been a double-edged sword for the Illini sack master.

Illinois’ Dennis Nevolo is ranked eighth in the nation in singles play. Nevolo and the Illini hope to regain their footing in this weekend’s Big Ten Tournament at Northwestern University.

After bye round, Illini to face No. 6 Wildcats BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

It’s been a rough few weeks for head coach Brad Dancer and the Illinois men’s tennis team. A once-magical season has seen the team lose four of its last seven matches and not look its best, even in victories. All would be forgiven, though, with a deep run in this weekend’s Big Ten Tournament, hosted by Northwestern. “The guys have come out this week and practiced well,” Dancer said. “We want to come out and win that championship, and we’ve been focused this week.” The No. 24 Illini (14-7, 8-3 Big Ten) clinched a first-round bye with its victory over Purdue on senior day last Sunday. On Friday afternoon, No. 3-seeded Illinois faces No. 6-seeded

Northwestern (14-9, 7-4), which took down Penn State to open up the tournament Wednesday. The Illini beat the Wildcats 5-2 on March 9. “The first-round bye is huge,” Dancer said. “I think you have to have that bye in order to win the tournament. I don’t think it’s feasible to win the whole thing without it.” The strength for Illinois has come in singles play. Seniors Dennis Nevolo and Roy Kalmanovich are nationally ranked in singles at No. 8 and No. 41, respectively. Nevolo is 14-5 in dual matches this year, while Kalmanovich is 12-8. Another bright spot for the Illini is freshman Tim Kopinski, who is 8-3 in conference play switching between the fourth and fifth singles spot. Dancer has said throughout the season that his team hasn’t played up to its

potential, nor to the standard that it set for the program. After Sunday’s victory against Purdue, he said he still didn’t think the team had played a complete match this season. “(To play a complete match) isn’t that complicated,” he said. “We need to come out strong in doubles, serve well and in singles come out and compete as hard as we can. It goes back to the standards we set for the program. We haven’t played up to our standards and that’s unacceptable.” No. 43 Northwestern started the Big Ten season with a 5-1 record, but dropped three of its last four matches to finish 7-4. With a second-round win, the Illini would get a chance to avenge regular season losses to Michigan and potentially Ohio State in the finals.

Johnson: Beware of ‘Madden Curse’ KEVIN THORNTON Sports columnist

I’m

not a very superstitious person. Sure, selling Babe Ruth to the Yankees haunted Red Sox fans until they finally won a World Series in 2004, but I don’t think that Bill Buckner was thinking about the Great Bambino when he let Mookie Blaylock’s grounder go between his legs one out away from winning it all. It’s equally unlikely that the Cubs have failed to return to the World Series since 1945 because they kicked Bill Sianis and his billy goat out of Wrigley Field — oddly enough, it’s possible for a team to suck as bad as the Cubs have for over a century with no explanation. When I heard that fans could vote for either Cam Newton or Calvin Johnson for the Madden ’13 cover, however, I knew what I had to do. After voting for Megatron a couple times in the last week, it was announced Wednesday that Johnson had won, receiving 52 percent of the more than 650,000 votes. Mission accomplished. Real or not, the Madden curse has been well documented since players first started appearing on the cover of Madden ’99. Garrison Hearst was the curse’s first “victim.” After a productive rushing season for the 49ers in 1998, Hearst broke his ankle in a divisional game against the Falcons. He didn’t play again until 2001 and eventually committed PR suicide with his anti-gay comments in 2002 when talking about potentially having a gay teammate. Despite posting career highs in yardage and touchdowns after appearing on the cover of Madden 2001, Eddie George lost a career-high four fumbles and ultimately cost the Titans their season. Down 17-10 late in the fourth quarter of a playoff game, George bobbled a pass, which was intercepted by Ray Lewis, sealing the victory. After being featured on the cover of Madden 2002, Daunte Culpepper set the record for most fumbles in a season and threw 23 interceptions en route to a 5-11 season for the Minnesota Vikings. In 2005, Culpepper tore three of his major knee ligaments and never really looked the same afterward. The curse followed him to Miami in 2006 when the Dolphins decided to go with a recovering Culpepper over Drew Brees, who appeared as the Madden cover athlete in 2011. Michael Vick might have been experienced the largest fall from grace

after appearing on the cover in 2004. Vick broke his fibula in a preseason game and was later discovered to be involved in a dog-fighting ring. After pleading guilty to felony charges, he spent 21 months in prison, two months on house arrest and declared bankruptcy before returning to the NFL in 2009. Madden 2006’s cover choice, Donovan McNabb, was having an up-anddown season for the Eagles until he tore his ACL in week 11, causing him to miss the rest of the year. The following season, Seahawks running back and NFL MVP Shaun Alexander missed six games to a foot injury and never returned to previous form. After one of his many “retirements,” Brett Favre was on the cover of Madden 2009 as a Packer. Favre unretired, was traded to the New York Jets for a fourth-round pick, had a mediocre season and got in some trouble for sexting and leaving inappropriate voice mails on reporter Jenn Sterger’s phone. Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald shared the 2010 cover, so it only makes sense that the curse had half as much of an effect. Despite the fact Kurt Warner retired, Fitzgerald was able to catch 90 passes for 1,137 yards and six touchdowns. Polamalu, on the other hand, sprained his MCL in the season opener, causing him to miss four games. He was injured again later in the season. Madden 12’s cover athlete, Peyton Hillis, missed five games due to a hamstring injury and another because of strep throat. Hillis had an abysmal season in Cleveland, having nearly 600 less rushing yards and eight less touchdowns from the year before. His lackluster performance was disheartening for Browns fans and even the running back himself, saying he was starting to believe in the curse. There’s no telling if the Madden curse is real, whether it manifests itself in the mind of the athlete or simply as coincidental bad luck. It’s not just Madden cover athletes that suffer from these unfortunate circumstances. In a violent, fast-paced league like the NFL, it’s nearly impossible to perform at an elite level every season. Calvin Johnson is one of the greatest wide receivers of all time and is definitely deserving of this honor. Since a financial meltdown in Detroit, injuries to Matt Stafford and triple coverage have all failed to slow down Johnson, the rest of the league will take any help it can get at this point.

The goal for all 12 teams is the same: win the Big Ten. It’s the challenge the Illinois women’s tennis team has set for itself this weekend in the Big Ten Tournament. The No. 21 Illini (17-6, 9-2 Big Ten) earned a first-round bye as the No. 3 seed in the tournament. The Illini are looking forward to potentially avenging regular season losses to conference co-champions Michigan in the semifinals and Northwestern in the finals. “We got to take care of business the first day,” head coach Michelle Dasso said. “Our goal is to beat Michigan. If we can win both our first matchups, our eye is on getting revenge against the Wolverines.” Illinois lost 6-1 to No. 15 Michigan (17-6, 10-1) in the regular season on

April 7. The match was the only loss for the Illini in their past 12 outings. “We’ve played all the opponents before,” Amy Allin said. “We know them equally well, so we’re more worried about us than them.” The Illini will open up the tournament facing the No. 39 Golden Gophers (15-7, 5-6) on Friday, after Minnesota defeated Iowa on Thursday night. The Illini topped the Gophers by a score of 6-1 in their regular season meeting April 1. “You can’t get too worked up on who you play,” Dasso said. “Minnesota’s lineup is completely different from when we played them earlier in the year. I think only one (individual) match would be the same.” “We’re pretty confident going into it,” redshirt senior Marisa Lambropoulos said. “We’re going to have to battle out

WELIN FROM PAGE 1B first two years. It is an especially interesting question, at least as far as the 2010 season is concerned, because he had the aforementioned Liuget clogging up the middle. Albeit a fair question, he had 16 sacks with a Big Ten schedule and sustained that same success all season long, earning a tackle for loss in all but one game. For what it’s worth, Mercilus only started two games in his first two seasons before starting every game in 2011. Playing with established defensive players like Connor Barwin, Antonio Smith, Brooks Reed, J.J. Watt and Brian Cushing will allow him to utilize his strength as a rusher. Adapting to the Texans’ 3-4 scheme and the loss of Mario Williams to free agency are the early pressures in Mercilus’ new situation. But adjusting to a new defense and helping fill the shoes of a Pro-bowler is the kind of challenge a player seeking to debunk the “one-year-wonder” label wants. Two players that were proven ended up going in the first and second picks of the first round. As was widely speculated in the months leading up to the Draft, Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III were taken first and second overall Thursday. Those two have the skills to resurrect two franchises in disarray, but as far as the first round of the Draft is concerned, the majority of the excitement took place in the eight picks that followed. While the last three draft’s have featured little first round trades in the first 10 selections, this year’s draft featured four

there. I’m excited.” One major factor Dasso said could make a difference is Illinois’ conditioning, calling it a “huge advantage.” If the Illini string together wins, they would play three matches in three days — a grueling task for anyone this late in the year. “This is where you trust all the hard work you put in,” Dasso said. “We’ve had so many morning conditioning sessions throughout the fall and spring.” Even though the team has a firstround bye and is looking forward to a highly anticipated rematch with Michigan, Dasso said this competition would be the biggest test for her team this season. “This is literally the best Big Ten Tournament we’ve had in the last decade or so because of the parity,” Dasso said.

trades in the first 10 picks. Of the teams that made trades, the most intriguing was the St. Louis Rams. They need talented players at virtually every position, but I was surprised to see the Rams move out of the top 10 to draft LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers. The only thing more surprising about the first round was San Francisco’s selection of Jenkins at No. 30. Whether you turned to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. or Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, who had Mercilus being selected by the Chicago Bears at No. 19 and by the Tennessee Titans at No. 20, respectively, Mercilus’ first round appeal was clear. The same was not true for Jenkins. Expected by various draft experts to be chosen between the second and third rounds, Jenkins’ speed, catching ability and ball skills give Alex Smith and Jim Harbaugh another wide receiver to help spread the field as a deep threat. With the acquisition of Mario Manningham and Randy Moss via free agency, and the selection of Jenkins Thursday, it is clear the 49ers are looking to improve a passing offense that averaged only 183 passing yards a game and rated near the bottom of the NFL in nearly every passing category. If the last three drafts have proved anything, it’s that some trends continued and some trends didn’t. Either way, if Orakpo, Pierre-Paul and Smith can rack up a video game stats worth of sacks in the NFL, the Texans hope Mercilus’ similar physical attributes can translate the same way, while the 49ers added another dimension to their offense.

NFL DRAFT FROM PAGE 1B in sacks (44). His addition to the Texans defensive line should help fill the void left by former No. 1 overall pick Mario Williams’ departure to Buffalo during free agency. Mercilus said he had “big shoes to fill” when asked about the absence of Williams. “Thing is that it’s a matter of working really hard and proving your worth,” he added. San Francisco’s selection of Jenkins adds to its receiving corp of Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis. The 49ers ranked 30th in 2011 in total passing yards with 3,193. San Francisco’s passing attack was one of the few anemic aspects on a 49ers team that nearly made the Super Bowl last season. “I get to learn from all them guys,” Jenkins said. “For me, it’s a great match. I get to learn from one of the best wide receivers in the league.” Both players acknowledged appreciation of getting drafted in the first round, as neither were highly regarded NFL prospects entering Illinois. “It’s amazing,” Mercilus said. “It’s a feat that I didn’t really think about back in the day. I was just looking to get a scholarship at any college playing ball. ... (I was) just putting my all into everything I do. It paid off in 2011, and now I’m here with the Houston Texans.”

Women’s golf prepares for Big Tens after last-place finish BY CHARLIE MANIATES STAFF WRITER

MOBILE, Ala. — Jennifer Rosales birdied five of the fi rst seven holes on the back nine and fi nished with a 5-under 67 on Thursday in the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic for a share of the first-round lead with Katie Futcher, Lindsey Wright and Caroline Hedwall. Rosales, the Filipino player who won the last of her two LPGA Tour titles in 2005, had a birdie and a bogey on the front nine before making her back-nine move on The Crossings course

at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex. The event was her first of the year on the tour. “I’m doing scuba diving in the offseason,” Rosales said. “It’s fun, I really love it. It’s totally different from golf. That’s it, that’s what I’ve been doing back home. The 33-year-old Rosales has limited tour status after finishing 124th on the money list last year. “Actually, you know what? It’s better not to expect anything,” Rosales said. “I just came out here and wanted to play and see

this weekend. ... Actually, today was an easy day for me. I hit most of the fairways and greens. I only missed I think a green today. My putting was very good today.” Futcher had the lead at 6 under after 17 holes, but dropped into a tie with a bogey on the par-4 ninth. She revealed that she recently switched from bacon to salami as her on-course snack. “I’ve tried everything on the golf course,” Futcher said. “I’ve tried sandwiches, I’ve tried nuts, I’ve tried every kind of bar you

can think of. Bacon is good for me because it has a lot of protein and a lot of fat. I’ve switched now to salami. I go back and forth from salami to bacon. Right now I’m on a salami kick because ... bacon, you can only eat so much of it for so long, so I kind of need to switch it up. Just something with some fat in it as well as some protein, and then I’ll eat just a straight carbohydrate bar.” Wright and Hedwall had bogeyfree rounds. “It feels like it’s kind of target golf and I like that,” Hedwall said.

After 11 events, it has all come down to this for the Illinois women’s golf team. Beginning Friday, the Illini will compete in the Big Ten Championships in French Lick, Ind., at the Donald Ross Golf Course. It is a 7,030-yard, par-70 course. The Orange and Blue previously played there during the fall season in the Lady Northern Intercollegiate, placing seventh out of 12 schools. They feel this experience is important for posting a better fi nish this weekend. “It’s just always nice to know what to expect when you’re going to a course,” senior Katelin Dilger said. “Then that way you can prepare, whether it’s a certain part of your game physically or even mentally.” Head coach Renee Slone agreed, adding that putting will be difficult on the course. “We played there in the fall, so we have an excellent idea as far as how things will play,” Slone said. “It is very important to position yourself well on the green because the greens are a challenging aspect of the golf course.” In addition to the difficult greens, the fairways are wide, which will put an emphasis on approach shots. Seniors Dilger, Hailey Koschmann, Samantha Sloan, Nora Lucas, sophomore Ember Schuldt and freshman Michelle Mayer will be competing for the Illini. Illinois played last weekend in the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational in Columbus, Ohio. Coming on the cusp of postseason play, the

golf team fi nished 11th out of 11, its worst showing of the season. “Being realistic, I’m sure there’s a little bit of a thought of (redeeming themselves),” Slone said. “Hopefully, we can use that as motivation to get back to business and play the golf that we are capable of playing.” She added that the team focused on the positives of this past season, including breaking the school record for the best three-round performance, in an effort to prepare for the Big Ten Championships. Members of the team felt they let themselves down and are seeking to put the loss behind them to focus on playing the golf they know they can. “It was defi nitely a little disappointing, but it’s better that it happened last week rather than this week,” Dilger said of the last-place fi nish. “I think we’re all ready to just go out there and play our best.” “The things that you learn the most are when you fail,” Lucas said. “We realized what we didn’t do well, and we’re just excited to move forward.” The team did not have much time for practice because of the short turnaround, but the players took their time Monday to work on individual skills. The next day, they focused on short game as a team followed by a practice round to rid themselves of the bad taste leftover from the weekend. After minimal practice, the members of the team denied having any butterflies. “We’re just looking at it as any other tournament,” Lucas said.

“It’s just always nice to know what to expect when you’re going to a course. Then that way you can prepare, whether it’s a certain part of your game physically or even mentally.” KATELIN DILGER,

Rangers survive against Senators, win 2-1 in Game 7 BY IRA PODELL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Rangers defensemen Marc Staal and Dan Girardi scored 4:18 apart in the second period, Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves, and top-seeded New York eliminated the pesky eighth-seeded Ottawa Senators from the playoffs with a 2-1 victory in Game 7 on Thursday night. Staal broke the scoreless deadlock, and Girardi gave the Rangers a 2-0 lead with his first career NHL playoff goal. Lundqvist allowed Daniel Alfredsson’s power-play goal in the second but stood tall the rest of the way to send the Rangers into an Eastern Conference second-round matchup with the seventh-seeded Washington Capitals. The Rangers hadn’t hosted a Game 7 since their Stanley Cup victory over Vancouver in 1994, but they stayed perfect at home in deciding games — winning their fourth. New York is 4-5 overall in Game 7, and the Senators dropped to 0-5.

MISCELLANEOUS

Lundqvist withstood tons of pressure from the Senators, who spent most of the closing five minutes in the Rangers’ end. The win wasn’t secure until Sergei Gonchar tripped Carl Hagelin as he skated toward the empty net with 36.2 seconds remaining. Craig Anderson was nearly as good in the Ottawa net, making 27 saves. New York rallied from a 3-2 series deficit for just the second time, building off the momentum of its 3-2 victory in Ottawa on Monday night in Game 6. Just like in that one, when the Rangers scored three goals in the second period, New York used the middle frame to take over. While waiting for their big guns — Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards — to spark the offense, a pair of defensemen stepped up to get the Rangers going. Rookie Chris Kreider, whose fi rst NHL goal was the winner Monday, forced a turnover and got the puck into the Ottawa end. Ryan Callahan nudged it ahead

to Derek Stepan, who sent a pass from the right circle to the left circle to Staal for his first goal of the series 4:46 into the second. Staal, limited to 46 regularseason games because of the lingering effects of a concussion sustained last season, thrust his hands up in delight when his shot beat Anderson. Staal had only two goals in the regular season. It didn’t take all that long for Madison Square Garden to erupt in cheers again for another blue-liner. Rangers forward Brandon Prust had the puck knocked off his stick, but teammate Brandon Dubinsky was there to get it and smack it into the slot to Girardi, who wound up for a hard slap shot just a few feet from the crease and slammed it past Anderson at 9:04. Like Staal, Girardi isn’t known for great offensive prowess. He had five goals while playing in all 82 regular-season games, but had scored only once in the previous 44 — including the first six of this series.

John Carlson (first season), No. 104 Minnesota Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Carlson — first season as head coach Last year’s Big Ten Championships — eighth Reasons for optimism — We have an outstanding player and No. 1 golfer in Eric Van Rooyen. He has played extremely well in the last three events. I also think that the French Lick course is good for our team. It is a very long golf course, which puts meaning in teeing off, which I believe is one of our strengths as a team. Reasons for concern — I am most concerned with inconsistency at the four and five spots. I would like for more consistency from the bottom of lineup X-Factor — How well we drive it off of the tee is the x–factor. If we can eliminate lost golf balls and hitting it into the hazard zones, we are a tough team to compete with. Team to beat — Iowa is the hottest team, coming off of two big victories at home and LSU. Northwestern and Indiana have been playing very well. I think it is up for grabs, as we saw at the Big Ten Match Play with a lot of close matches. We had tough matches against Illinois, Purdue and Northwestern. After Iowa, anyone can get second place.

Illinois' Luke Guthrie eyes down a shot at Stone Creek Golf Club in Urbana on April 18.

No. 34 men’s golf eyes 4th straight Big Ten Championship BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

The Illinois men’s golf team will attempt to make history at this weekend’s Big Ten Championships. The three-time defending champions will have to fight through tough competition if they want to become the first team to win four consecutive Big Ten Championships since the conference began modern scoring in 1986. “Last year was last year, and this year is a whole new year,” Illinois senior Luke Guthrie said. “I’m just looking forward to the challenge, the whole team is.” The No. 34 Illini will try to four-peat with a new lineup after losing 2010 NCAA Champion Scott Langley and All-Big Ten Chris Deforest to graduation. Illinois head coach Mike Small returns Guthrie, sophomore Thomas Pieters and junior Mason Jacobs from last year’s squad. Langley and Deforest will be replaced by freshmen Brian Campbell and Alex Burge. “Mike lost some guys, but they haven’t skipped too many beats,” Wisconsin head coach Michael Burcin said. “Illinois is Illinois, and I would expect them to be there at the end. I wouldn’t expect anything less of them.” Guthrie won last year’s championship and has never finished lower than ninth in the tournament. He heads into the weekend as the conference’s top-ranked player with a Golfweek/Segarin ranking of No. 13 in the nation. The four-year starter and 2011 First Team All-American has been a part of a Big Ten Championship-winning squad during his entire time at Illinois. “He still has to hit the shots and he still has to go play,” Small said. “But I think his experience of being there will be a big advantage.” Pieters may threaten Guthrie’s reign as the Big Ten Medalist. The Nijlen, Belgium native was named to Team Europe in the Palmer Cup on Tuesday. Ranked No. 50 in the nation, Pieters has scored lower than Guthrie in five of the Illini’s nine tournaments this season. Pieters and Guthrie will face some of the toughest competition they’ve seen this season. Barrett Kelpin of Iowa is ranked No. 29, while Northwestern’s Eric Chun is ranked No. 44. Indiana’s Chase Wright is ranked No. 84. Illinois must go through No. 25 Iowa if it wants to win the tournament. The Hawkeyes come in as the top-ranked team in the Big Ten. Indiana and Purdue are both ranked in the top 50, and Northwestern won the Big Ten Match Play Championships in February. “I think anyone could win out of those five,” Small said. “But I’m pulling for us. I’m hedging our bets on us.” The Pete Dye Course at French Lick in French Lick, Ind., will host the championships. The three-day, 72-hole tournament starts Friday with 36 holes, while Saturday and Sunday feature 18 holes each. Purdue’s home course, the Kampen Course in West Lafayette, Ind., is also a Pete Dye original. Illinois played in the Boilermaker Invitational at the Kampen Course last weekend, and last year’s Big Ten Championships were played at Purdue. “Pete Dye is a unique course designer,” said Guthrie, who won the Boilermaker Invitational. “He throws a lot of illusions at you, where the eye tells you one thing, but reality is a different thing. It will definitely help that we’ve seen a course similar.” The Big Ten Championships will be played at a neutral course for the first time this year. None of the conference’s teams have played the course, although Small won a PGA Professional National Championship at the Pete Dye Course in 2010. “I think it helps, but I’m not hitting any of the shots for them, so it doesn’t really help that much,” Small said. “I think I’ll be able to have some experience and be able to impart some ideas on what the ball may do.” Along with the new location, the composition of this year’s event will look significantly different than the 2011 Big Ten Championships. Conference newcomer Nebraska will compete in the event for first time. Nebraska, the lowest-ranked team in the Big Ten, did not win any of its matches in the Big Ten Match Play Championships in February. “Top-to-bottom, the Big Ten is stronger than the Big 12 where we came from,” Nebraska head coach Bill Spangler said. Including Spangler, the Big Ten Championships will feature five new head coaches. Michigan’s Chris Whitten, Wisconsin’s Burcin, John Carlson of Minnesota and Michigan State’s Casey Lubahn are the other additions. Out of the 12 head coaches in the conference, only Small and Northwestern’s Pat Goss have won a Big Ten Championship. Pieters said the expectations for this weekend are no different than for any other tournament. “We’re going there to win,” Pieters said. “If all of us just play steady golf, I think we’ll be all right.”

Mike Small (12th season), No. 34 Illinois Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Small — Big Ten Champions in 2009, 2010 and 2011 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — Big Ten Champions Reasons for optimism — I saw a lot of positive signs at Purdue last weekend, which is always good leading up to an event. I’ve got two of the best players in the conference, which is always important to have. We are the three-time defending champions, so we know how to win. Reasons for concern — I’m concerned about us getting ahead of ourselves, us getting there and not handling adversity very well, not staying in the moment and taking care of business at the time instead of thinking ahead. X-Factor — The team that when they get out front and get in contention, they can rely on experience and rely on past positiveness to bring them through. Team to beat — I think us. I mean, we’re the defending champions. I think there’s four teams that all have a chance. There’s four teams very closely ranked and played last week very tightly together. Iowa, Indiana, Northwestern, Purdue and us. I think anyone could win out of those five, but I’m pulling for us. I’m hedging our bets on us.

Mike Mayer (14th season), No. 37 Indiana Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Mayer — second in 2005 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — fifth Reasons for optimism — We have played a national schedule ... and beat some of the top teams in the country. We feel our team is solid from top to bottom. Reasons for concern — I’m not really worried about anything. It’s a process, we need to stay focused and stay calm. X-factor — X–factor will be Pete Dye Course at French Lick. We know it fairly well. Coach Small won a tournament on it, so he knows it. ... Nobody has played a competitive round on the course, and that will be the x-factor. Team to beat — Obviously, The Illini are the three-time defending Big Ten Champions. Even though Iowa is the top-ranked team and may be the best on paper, the Illini are the team who everyone is looking to beat.

Mark Hankins (fifth season), No. 25 Iowa Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Hankins — second in 2010 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — third Reasons for optimism — The entire spring schedule we have played steady. We have had a lot of contributions and a lot of depth, not just one or two guys. The team depth is the main thing. Reasons for concern — Never being to the course before. It is their first time hosting the Big Ten Championships, so there are a lot of unknowns. A lot of times going into tournaments you know what to expect and how to prepare, but this week we’re in the dark. X-Factor — The weather is always an x-factor. In the Midwest, you never know what you’re gonna see. That’s why we tried to move it to a neutral site that is a little bit farther South. It looks like we will have a couple cool days and couple nice days. Weather is always a factor. Team to beat — A lot of teams that have a shot since it’s one tournament. Purdue has been playing well and their home course is very similar. Illinois is the three-time defending champions and have been playing well. Indiana won (the Boilermaker Invitational) last week, and we’re highly ranked. Northwestern always plays well in big tournaments, and they won the Big Ten Match Plays earlier this year. A lot of teams have a chance. It bodes well for the entire conference. Last year the conference did very well at Nationals. We’re proud of the depth of the Big Ten, and it should make for an exciting tournament.

Casey Lubahn (first season), No. 94 Michigan State Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Lubahn — first season as head coach Last year’s Big Ten Championships — 10th Reasons for optimism — I am confident that my guys will pay attention to details. The course is similar to the course here in East Lansing, and last weekend we played Purdue, which had a similar type of course with similar conditions. Reasons for concern — I don’t want the guys to try too hard. In golf, there is a fine line between trying too hard and getting too tense, so we need to make sure we play relaxed. X-Factor — I think that the x-factor is how the course is setup. It can play long and be very, very demanding. If it is set up difficult, it could be a challenging day. But if they set it up easier, I expect a lot of teams to be in the mix. Team to beat — Iowa has shown that it is close to taking over Illinois’ reign. This could be anyone’s game if the conditions are right, but I think Iowa is the front-runner right now.

Chris Whitten (first season), No. 118 Michigan Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Whitten — first season as head coach Last year’s Big Ten Championships — Tied for sixth Reasons for optimism — I’m confident that our group of guys will understand our purpose in going to the Big Ten Championships. Our goal is very clear and preparation is key. Our goal every year is to win the Big Ten, but we can only control what we do. Reasons for concern — Experience. This is the first Big Ten Tournament for several of our guys. It is at a new golf course, so their practice round will be key. We need good execution, especially for guys that this is their first time playing at the Big Ten Tournament. X-factor — The course setup. It is a new course, and the first time the tournament has been played at a neutral site. The course is difficult. The weather and the course will be the x-factors. Team to beat — Iowa is the top-ranked team and has been the most consistent this spring, but there are five or six teams that have had flashes of good play that could definitely compete for the title.

Right now, cramming is a part of life. But it doesn’t have to be a part of your mouth’s. When wisdom teeth come in, the result is often painful due to overcrowding and can cause damage to other teeth. This time of year, it is not unusual for students to have trouble with their wisdom teeth. Stress and lack of proper rest and diet seem to act as a catalyst for wisdom tooth flare-up. At Affiliates in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, the removal of wisdom teeth is done as an outpatient surgery and is often covered by student insurance.

Affiliates in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery 3112 Village Office Place Champaign, IL 61822 (217)351-7111

Bill Spangler (11th season), No. 177 Nebraska Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Spangler — first season in Big Ten, sixth in Big 12 in 2006 and 2007 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — eighth in the Big 12 Reasons for optimism — My guys have been playing better lately. My No. 1 has played well all spring, most of the year. This is a new course, so that will be a lot of fun and exciting to play. Reasons for concern — You hope that everyone plays their best and that the guys do well with course management and keep positive attitudes, but there are never any worries. X-factor — Keeping patience. There are 72 holes, so it is a long tournament, the longest of the year. There are a lot of holes. It is a marathon and not a sprint. You need to keep composure and stay patient and take it one hole at a time for all 72 holes. Team to beat — Iowa has been playing well, but also Illinois and Northwestern. There are an awful lot of good teams in the conference. Top to bottom, the Big Ten is stronger than the Big 12, where we came from. The key is throwing out a good score from your five-man. The better your five-man does, the better you do. I’m really excited. It should be a lot of fun.

Pat Goss (15th season), No. 58 Northwestern Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Goss — Big Ten Champions in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2006 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — second Reasons for optimism — We have had a good spring. Nick Losole was hurt in the fall, but he came back and has played well all spring, which has really helped the team. Our No. 1 golfer, Eric Chun, is a great leader who has really helped the team this year. I would say that those are the main two reasons to be confident. Reasons for concern — We have a few players who are swing players. Sam Chien and Jack Perry have been inconsistent. If they play well, we can create an opportunity to contend. But if not, it’ll be tough. X-factor — We are playing a unique venue that should be good to Illinois because Coach Small won his PGA event there. The course is very unique. It will be a difficult and windy course, and the team that is able to grind it out will have the best chance to win. Team to beat — Iowa has been the strongest team this spring, but Illinois has won three titles in a row and Coach Small won his PGA Championship there. There are four, five or six teams that are pretty much evenly matched that I think could win. This is the most evenly matched tournament since I’ve been in the Big Ten.

Donnie Darr (third season), No. 67 Ohio State Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Darr — fourth in 2011 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — fourth Reasons for optimism — We have three freshmen and one thing that excites me is how hard these boys work, so it will be neat to see them compete at this level and whether they trust themselves on the big stage. Reasons for concern — This year, when we’ve played well, we’ve been very good. But when we’ve been bad, we’ve played very poorly. We need to minimize the big mistakes. X-factor — The x-factor is to manage around the greens and not make the big mistakes. Being able to get small numbers when you’re in trouble, and avoid the double- and triple-bogeys. The team that does that will have the best chance at winning. Team to beat — This year I think it’s wide open. In the past, Illinois has been the dominant team, but this year Iowa is the highest ranked, but Illinois is the three-time defending champs, and, in my mind, you have to go through Illinois to win. Until someone takes them down, they are the team to beat.

Greg Nye (20th season), No. 141 Penn State Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Nye — third in 2000 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — ninth Unavailable for comment.

Devon Brouse (14th season), No. 48 Purdue Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Brouse — second in 2000 and 2001 Last year’s Big Ten Championships — tied for sixth Unavailable for comment.

Michael Burcin (first season), No. 164 Wisconsin Best finish at Big Ten Championships under Burcin — first season as head coach Last year’s Big Ten Championships — 11th Reasons for optimism — I’m confident that we’re going to be mentally prepared. Our guys will hang in there and be mentally strong and ready to play. Being new, and taking over for a program that has struggled for the last few years and not having a full group of our guys for a few years, we need to make sure everyone is prepared as they can be and be mentally tough. I am confident we will play well and be mentally strong. Reasons for concern — I’m concerned our guys aren’t really mentally prepared to deal with adversity. They need to realize that when you’re competing at high levels, it’s not all roses all the time. This year we have been focusing on raising expectations and getting over hurdles. X-Factor — This year more than ever it’s the golf course and how they have it set up. The weather may play a role, but the course setup and wind are important. It is definitely that 80-90 percent of the competitors are not familiar with the course. Team to beat — Illinois or Iowa. We have faced both teams a couple times this year. Both are perennially strong programs. Iowa played well when we faced them at home. Illinois has played well the few times we’ve seen them. Mike lost some guys, but they haven’t skipped too many beats. Illinois is Illinois, and I would expect them to be there at the end. I wouldn’t expect anything less of them.
