Foreign students feel left out by UI International student survey ranks Illinois close to bottom in helpfulness BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

Brad Dorner, a graduate student at the University, hands out “pot brownies” on the Quad on Wedensday. Dorner is part of a group on campus that is fighting for the legalization of marijuana.

Student groups use ‘pot brownies’ to protest War on Drugs BY NYAJAI ELLISON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The local chapter of Young Americans for Liberty set up a table on the Quad to protest the War on Drugs by giving away free “pot brownies.” The brownies were given out of an actual pot to students on Wednesday in anticipation of the upcoming unofficial holiday for those who support the legalization of marijuana: 4/20. Dan Humbrecht, president of YAL and sophomore in Engineering, operated the table along with 15 other members of the Registered Student Organization. “4/20 is basically the day that everybody comes together for the idea of legalization and support for ending marijuana prohibition,” he said. “It’s just our way of bringing awareness to how the war on drugs has really failed, and it’s time for us to pursue some other options.”

Jason Spangehl, a civil and defense attorney, supported the group’s message and stopped by the table. “I do a lot of small criminal defense work for people who have been arrested for marijuana infractions, and I definitely support legalization,” he said. “It’s definitely not a good lifestyle choice, but at the same time, we’re not making any improvements in their life by putting them in jail.” Humbrecht added that the pursuing of drug crimes, instead of violent crimes, is inefficient. “It’s a huge drain on government resources, too, to have law enforcement pursuing victimless crimes like drug crimes and to spend their resources doing this rather than investigating violent crimes and things along those lines,” Humbrecht said. Also on Wednesday, the Illinois House passed a measure that would allow medical marijuana to be

prescribed to patients with illnesses that were laid out in the law. Gov. Pat Quinn indicated that he is openminded to signing the bill into law. Jvon Howard, junior in LAS, spoke about the government’s influence. “The government is working to protect us, and we’re going against the government by trying to influence the drug into society, and that’s messing up peoples lives,” he said. Economics lecturer Isaac DiIanni said that full legalization or medical legalization would be beneficial economically for the U.S. “I would support legalization for personal liberty reasons,” he said. “The cost savings on the drug war would be positive. I believe that the benefits of legalization outweigh the cost.”

President Barack Obama released the 2014 budget plan last week featuring a few different proposals to highlight the importance of improving higher education in America. According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Education, the president’s plan includes a request for comprehensive reforms in higher education with the goal of increasing affordability and quality. Among these reforms is a $1 billion investment for the new “Race to the Top: College Affordability and Completion” competition. This competition is meant to provide incentive for states to lower college costs so it becomes more affordable for young adults to attend college. University spokesman Tom Hardy

believes the University’s involvement in this program is part of an ongoing trend. “The University of Illinois itself puts in more than $61 million a year in institutionally supported financial aid for students attending the University who qualify for it,” he said. “You’ve got Pell Grants and MAP grants and tax deductions that families can take, so there’s a lot of different ways and a lot of different sources to try to make college more affordable.” Hardy said the cost of a college education has continued to rise sharply across the nation, and the cost of attending public universities like Illinois increase specifically because of declining support from the state. “We get less and less state tax-supported funding from one year to the next, so we have to make up for that

by raising tuition in order to maintain quality,” Hardy said. Another proposal in Obama’s plan to make college more affordable is the First in the World Fund, named after the U.S.’s previous higher education ranking, which has been budgeted at $260 million. According to the U.S. Department of Education, officials named the plan after this previous ranking in hopes of returning to this status. According to the press release, America “just one generation ago” led the world in percentage of adults with college degrees, while now the U.S. is ranked 14th. This program provides funds for innovation that will lower costs and leverage advances in teaching sci-

Proposals on the president’s 2014 budget plan

The Illinois Student Senate introduced and swore in its new executive board members for the upcoming fall semester at its transition meeting Wednesday. The executive board for the upcoming fall term consists of Student Body President Damani Bolden, Vice President-external Timmy Knudsen, Vice President-internal Jenny Baldwin, and Treasurer Kevin Seymour. Preceding Student Body President

Brock Gebhardt shared what ISS meant to him as he served for the past 12 months. “For me, to be able to serve in this capacity has truly affected my life,” Gebhardt said. “When challenges to our unity emerged, we rose to meet them. Facing the prospect of an internal division, we took decisive measures to safeguard our collective voice. There were very tough times for our student organization, but the toll would’ve been far worse had we not acted.” Newly elected senators were also in

“It was totally a mess. I didn’t know how to get the building I need to go to for class, and I didn’t know how to take the MTD. I often need to ask the students here, and they are really helpful. They also provide really clear directions for where I need to go.” SHIYING ZHOU, freshman in LAS

Obama releases budget plan for education BY BRITTANY GIBSON

When Hyeji Son arrived on campus, the South Korea native found herself lost when trying to find her classes and struggled with making friends aside from her fellow Koreans. According to a recent study, Son is not alone in having difficulty transitioning to campus life. The University is considering changes to the way it welcomes first-time international students after the International Student Barometer survey reported that foreign students are having trouble adjusting to life on campus. Julie Misa, director of International Student and Scholar Services, said her office is looking to change its orientation program after the University ranked 16th out of 21 United States universities surveyed regarding the arrival experience of international students on campus. Currently, international students are welcomed on campus through an “optional but highly recommended” program sponsored by ISSS. In the spring 2013 program, students learned about the services offered to them by campus programs, including the McKinley Health Center and the Career Center. Residence halls, academic units and registered student organizations also contribute to the welcome experience, according to Misa. But the first organization that international students interact with is ISSS, which is responsible for much of the immigration documentation that must be completed by

attendance and were sworn in for the upcoming semester. Gebhardt encouraged them to address the senate and engage in productive dialogue. Senators, consisting of both undergraduate and graduate students, were encouraged by Gebhardt to work as a team to bring students’ concerns to the forefront of the campus’ attention. “Together, with determination and hard work we will reinvigorate our government to advocate more successfully than ever,” Gebahrdt said. Previous Vice President-internal,

Shao Guo, gave advice for newly elected senators. “All of the senator elects that are here, you matter,” Guo said. “You matter a lot to the students here. The only legacy you can leave behind here is this institution.” Fiscal responsibility was a topic of concern for many senators during the meeting, especially concerning a passed $1,000 senate allocation to the C-U Bike to Work and School Day event. The necessity and allocation of money

“It was hard, definitely hard. Actually, my English is not very good because it’s my first time coming here to America, so the weather change, the food change. I have no friends here, and I have to make new friends that are new people I haven’t before is kinda hard.”

Explosion at Texan fertilizer plant causes many injuries BETSY BLANEY AND JOHN MONE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST, Texas — An explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco Wednesday night injured dozens of people and sent flames shooting high into the night sky, leaving the factory a smoldering ruin and causing major damage to surrounding buildings. The blast at West Fertilizer in West, a community about 20 miles north of Waco, happened shortly before 8 p.m. and could be heard as far away as Waxahachie, 45 miles to the north. There was no immediate word from officials about fatalities or the severity of the explosion, as Texas Gov. Rick Perry said state officials were also waiting for details about the extent of the damage. “We are monitoring developments and gathering information as details continue to emerge about this incident,” Perry said in a statement. “We have also mobilized state resources to help local authorities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people

of West, and the first responders on the scene.” But aerial footage showed fires still smoldering in the ruins of the plant and in several surrounding buildings, and people being treated for injuries on the flood-lit local football field, which had been turned into a staging area for emergency responders. Debby Marak told The Associated Press that when she finished teaching her religion class Wednesday night, she noticed a lot of smoke in the area across town near the plant, which is near a nursing home. She said she drove over to see what was happening, and that when she got there, two boys came running toward her screaming that the authorities ordered everyone out because the plant was going to explode. She said she drove about a block when the blast happened. “It was like being in a tornado,” Marak, 58, said by phone. “Stuff was flying everywhere. It blew out my windshield.” “It was like the whole earth

BAROMETER FROM PAGE 1A international students. One type of program offered to help students adjust is international student luncheons. Son said she attended one luncheon her freshman year, but low attendance and a “loose” atmosphere turned her away from the events. The University ranked secondto-last in the welcome experience, which included getting picked up at the airport, rail station or bus station. Misa said 2012 was the first year where the University had someone stationed at Willard Airport to help students with their initial arrival to Champaign-Urbana. Misa said it’s too early to tell which changes international students can expect in next year’s orientation program. “Part of what we’ll be able to look into in the big data set that we’ve been given is the actual new students’ response to the questions that are specific to arrival,” Misa said. “So we need to really dig down into that and see what we might be able to do to make the orientation better for students.” Son said her most difficult transition was on the academic side of campus. “Welcoming was fine at my dorm, but school-wise and department-wise I didn’t get any significant welcoming,” she said. International students ranked the University last in the U.S. in class size.

When they got to their home about 2 miles south of town, her husband told her what he’d seen: a huge fireball that rose like “a mushroom cloud.” More than two hours after the blast, there were still fires smoldering in what was left of the plant and in others burning nearby. The roof of what appeared to be a housing complex of some kind had collapsed. In aerial footage from NBC’s Dallas-Fort Worth affiliate, KXAS, dozens of emergency vehicles could be seen amassed at the scene. Entry into West was slow-going, as the roads were jammed with emergency vehicles rushing in to help out. Authorities set up a staging area on the local high school’s football field, which was lit up with floodlights.

Son, an economics major, said she had difficulty with 100-level, introduction courses that have more than 700 students, as well as 400-level courses that don’t have teaching assistants. Son also said she has noticed limited interaction between international students and American students, which was also noted by the survey. The University ranked second-to-last in the U.S. in international students making friends with those from the host country. “There is a very small portion of people who hang out regardless of races,” Son said. “Speaking of my friends, they don’t feel invited. We, as international students, always feel like we are minority, and the people get really intimidated.” Misa said the University has noted the low integration.“It looks like there could be some potential for creating a little more interactions for students, especially with students from other countries than the United States and generally making them feel welcome when they’re first arriving here.”

How the survey was conducted The International Student Barometer Survey was conducted at 161 institutions across the world, including 21 in the United States and six Big Ten schools. The survey asked international students about all aspects of life on campus, including life, learning, arrival and support. The survey had both objective and subjective questions.

In this first year of the three-year survey at the University, 40 percent of international students participated. Pamela Barrett, director of client relations at The International Graduate Insight Group (i-graduate), the company that conducted the survey, explained how many schools use the results. “Generally, universities participate in the ISB to see where and how they can improve the experience of their international students,” she said. “ISB partner institutions use the survey to decide how best and where to allocate resources, as well as understanding where there are areas within the institution where things can be improved, and where there are examples of great service that can be recognized.” “It’s a benchmarking survey,” Misa said. “But it also gives information about the institution. It is standard questions, but we are able to customize the questions so they make sense for the University of Illinois.” Misa said ISSS is working to completely digest the information found in the survey and then make adjustments to help international students’ life on campus. “Now, it’s important for us to really not just say we’ve done a survey and set it aside,” she said. “We need to see what’s out there and see what kind of changes we can try to have based on the survey results.”

Overall survey results positive for University

The University is one of the top universities for international students, according to the survey. The survey ranked the University fourth out of 21 U.S. schools that participated in the survey. The University was second in the nation and first in the Big Ten in sport facilities, and third nationally and top in the conference in transportation around campus, the physical and online library, technology and opportunities to teach. “Even for an institution like Illinois, competition to attract and retain the best international students is intensifying,” said Pamela Barrett, director of client relations at i-graduate, in an email. “And where many students choose where to go in part through word of mouth recommendation and using the opinions of current students, maintaining strong satisfaction is increasingly important.” Since 86 percent of students said they would recommend the University to their peers, the University’s reputation is high. The University is known worldwide and was recently pegged as the No. 24 university in the world by the Times Higher Education world reputation rankings.

said. “The administration can pitch an idea and then hand it to Congress and the Department of Education for them to determine details and a path forward.” The final facet of Obama’s plan for higher education is his $10 billion donation to campus-based aid programs. This will provide additional scholarship opportunities to students, along with recognizing and rewarding colleges that have served high-need students well throughout the years. Colleges that have made an effort

to help students in need in the past will see a larger portion of funding from these aid programs. “You get to a certain point where it’s a backbreaking proposition for some students in terms of accumulating debt,” Hardy said. “Students and their families can tap into it for need-based financial aid ... (because) greater diversity of the University population is obviously a welcome thing.” The first half of Obama’s plan is primarily focused on early childhood programs and on efforts for K-12

school districts to graduate more students and promote early learning. The motive behind starting young is to eventually raise the amount of college graduates in the United States. “We are in an economy where a college education is almost a prerequisite for just about anything that you would want to do these days,” Hardy said. The President’s plan will now be debated by Congress.

ceremony following the meeting. The refreshments totaled $262, which Gold and Ellithorpe said they saw as unnecessary. Ryan Young, graduate student, served as vice president-external until this past January and responded to Gold’s and Ellithorpe’s concerns regarding ISS spending. “Money doesn’t matter,” Young said. “We can’t change this campus with $39,000, but we can change a lot with our voices. Really know why you’re here. Know that students are depending on you because they want you to talk to the administration.” Bolden echoed Young’s sentiment by

outlining how his administration will approach the issue of fiscal responsibility next term. “I am a proponent of being as fiscally transparent as possible,” Bolden said. “It was one of my campaign promises to work with the treasurer to put up a more formalized budget. I guarantee that I can only give the students of the great University of Illinois the promise that we will be more fiscally responsible with our dollars, more efficient with them and more ethical with them.” During member comment, the main issues of concern for next year’s term included not only fiscal responsibil-

ity, but also senate time management during meetings and the main goal of serving the community. Jim Maskeri, senator and senior in LAS, provided the new fall senate with advice on how to approach the new position. “If you are here to truly make a difference, then yes, this place is for you,” Maskeri said. “It’s important that you are here representing your student constituents. It’s important that we have constant vigilant voices speaking in our student senate.”

Software malfunction grounds passengers BY DAVID KOENIG THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS — American Airlines played catch-up Wednesday, resuming most flights and even adding a handful that were not on the schedule to help passengers stranded by a massive technology failure that grounded the carrier’s entire U.S. fleet. A day after the nationwide breakdown, some cancellations persisted, and delays were still common. About a third of American flights were late as of mid-afternoon. American’s CEO blamed Tuesday’s failure on a software problem that knocked out computers needed for booking flights, tracking bags, loading and fueling planes and more. “As you’d imagine, we do have redundancies in our system,” Tom Horton, chief executive of parent company AMR Corp., said in an apology posted on YouTube. “But unfortunately in this case, we had a software issue that impacted both our primary and backup systems.” American and smaller-jet subsidiary American Eagle canceled more than 300 flights by mid-afternoon, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware.com. American said some flights were affected by bad weather in Chicago. But the airline’s performance was a huge improvement over Tuesday, when the computer trouble brought all departures to a halt. Flights already in the air were allowed to continue to their destinations, but planes on the ground could not take

American and American Eagle canceled nearly 1,000 flights and delayed another 1,100. Two-thirds of their scheduled flights were late or never got into the air. On Wednesday, American added seven unscheduled flights to accom-

modate passengers stranded the day before in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. As marooned passengers resume their travels, questions lingered about the technology and whether American’s systems will be adequate to avoid similar collapses after the

company merges with US Airways to form the world’s biggest airline. Money has been tight for airlines in recent years, so spending has been focused on immediate needs rather than upgrading technology, said Ira Gershkoff, who runs SlipStream Aviation Software.

FBI finds suspected sender of poison mail BY HOLBROOK MOHR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OXFORD, Miss. — The FBI has identified a Mississippi man suspected of mailing letters containing poisonous ricin as 45-year-old Paul Kevin Curtis. FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen said Curtis was arrested Wednesday afternoon at his apartment in Corinth, near the Tennessee state line about 100 miles east of Memphis. Authorities still waited for definitive tests on the letters sent to President Barack Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss. An FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press said those two letters were postmarked Memphis, Tenn. FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen said the man was arrested Wednesday. His name wasn’t immediately released publicly. Authorities still waited for definitive tests on the letters to Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss. An FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press said those two letters were postmarked Memphis, Tenn. Both letters said: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.” Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.” The letters were intercepted before reaching the White House or Senate. The FBI said Wednesday that more testing was underway. Preliminary field tests can often show false positives for ricin. As authorities scurried to investigate three questionable packages discovered in Senate office buildings, reports of suspicious items also came in from at least three senators’ offices in their home states. Sen. Carl Levin said a staff member at his Saginaw, Mich., office would spend the night in a hospital as a precaution after discovering a suspicious letter. The staff member had no symptoms, Levin said in a statement. He expected to learn preliminary results of tests on the letter by Thursday. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said suspicious letters at his Phoenix office had been cleared with nothing dangerous found. A package at Sen. John Cornyn’s Dallas-area office also was declared harmless, a fire department spokesman said. All three packages in the Capitol complex turned out to be safe, Capitol police spokeswoman Makema Turner said late Wednesday. But a man was still being questioned after being stopped in connection with the packages, she said. All the activity came as tensions were high in Washington and across the country following Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 170. The FBI said there was no indication of a connection between the letters and the bombing. The letters to Obama and Wicker were postmarked April 8, before the marathon. Capitol Police swiftly ramped up security, and lawmakers and staff were cautioned away from some parts of the Hill complex. After hours of jangled nerves, officials signaled it was safe to move throughout the area and people settled back to normal, if watchful, activity. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said that police had a suspect in mind in the Wicker mailing, someone who “writes a lot of letters to members.” She made the comment Tuesday as she emerged from a briefing by law enforcement on the Boston bombing. Authorities declined to comment on a possible suspect. Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, said mail sent to the White House is screened at a remote site for the safety of the recipients and the general public. He declined to comment on the significance of the preliminary ricin result, referring questions to the FBI. At a House hearing, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe noted there had been ricin alerts since the notorious 2001 anthrax mailings and procedures are in place to protect postal employees and help track down culprits. “Over the course of years we’ve had some situations where there have been ricin scares,” Donahoe said. “Until this date, there’s never been any actually proved that have gone through the system.” After the hearing, Donahoe said he didn’t know whether the latest letters had been proven to contain ricin. He also told reporters that people sometimes mail substances that mimic the poison. No postal workers have reported illness connected to the incident, he said. Ricin, derived from the castor plant, is at its deadliest when inhaled. Even during the flurry of concern, normal business continued across most of the Capitol and its office buildings, with tour groups passing through.

Support for gay rights in pro sports breaks barriers

T

he big four of North American sports have started to make major inroads with the gay and lesbian community and we couldn’t be more supportive. Our country has already taken big steps toward acceptance on the institutional level in just the past 10 years. In 2003, the Supreme Court put an end to Texas’, and by extension 13 other states’ prohibitions on same-sex intercourse with its ruling in Lawrence v. Texas. In 2011, the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was repealed, allowing gay men and lesbian women to serve openly in our military. Since 2011, the Obama administration has refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act that defines marriage as between one man and one woman. As of 2013, nine states and Washington, D.C. now allow same-sex marriage. However, it’s one thing for the government to endorse gay rights, it’s another thing altogether for one of America’s most revered cultural outlets to do the same. What cultural institution do Americans most identify with? Pro sports are certainly a strong contender. According to a 2011 Marist poll, 61 percent of Americans consider themselves sports fans; in 2012, the MLB drew over 74.8 million to its parks; the NFL’s Super Bowl regularly breaks the record for the most-watched event in American television history. Pro sports have played a big role in breaking down cultural barriers. Jackie Robinson didn’t just break the color line when he first donned Dodgers blue in 1947, he also set the stage for greater acceptance of people of color in society. Every time he stepped to the plate on the national stage, he proved racial integration wouldn’t damage the national pastime — that there was nothing un-American about the color of one’s skin. We don’t think sexual orientation will be any different. The groundwork for openly gay and lesbian athletes has been in the works for the past several years. All of the major sports leagues now have policies against discrimination based on sexual orientation. Various current and former players and officials have come out in support of inclusiveness. Just last Thursday, the NHL jumped ahead of the rest of the pack, launching an initiative to combat homophobia. We applaud such activity and hope the NHL’s action will spur the other leagues into a competition, jockeying to outdo one another’s inclusive initiatives. All this preparation comes with apt timing as the reality of gay sports figures in the big four nears salience. On April 5, in an interview with The Baltimore Sun, LGBT rights supporter and former NFL linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo stoked the hopes of many by announcing that “as many as four players could conceivably come out simultaneously”in the near future. With the imminence of openly gay athletes, the foundation being laid by the pro sports leagues is both vital and welcome. It is undeniable that when gay players start to disclose their sexual orientations, there will be backlash. Creating an accepting environment now can go a long way toward mitigating such criticism. A smooth transition into such an important part of what defines many of us as Americans will have major, positive effects for the gay community. Institutional support alone will not change people’s minds. Making the diverse range of sexual orientations an integral part of the American identity

There is only one thing to fear after Boston MATT PASQUINI Opinions columnist

A

pril 15th, 2013: A day that will live in infamy. A day where three were killed and over one hundred seventy were injured. A day that will be remembered as a cowardly attack on innocent runners who were portraying the amazing capabilities of the human species. On April 15, 2013, a bomb exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. While most people suspect this incident to be a heinous act of terror, no one knows for sure. But what we do know is that tragic events like this tend to bring out the best in us. In the aftermath of the explosion, it was reported that, instead of fleeing, people rushed to the scene to do what they can to help the victims of the explosion. People used their clothes as tourniquets for those who were suffering from severe blood loss, a group of medical students who were in the area heard the blast and immediately ran to the scene to assist injured victims, and runners who finished early rushed to Mass General Hospital to donate their blood. The American Red Cross later tweet-

ed, “Thanks to generosity of volunteer blood donors there is currently enough blood on the shelves to meet demand. #BostonMarathon.” These acts of kindness, selflessness and altruism speak volumes about humankind. While many lose faith in humanity in the face of tragic events like this, I gain hope. I remember that despite the fear that was instilled in the wake of the explosion and while a disturbing amount of destruction was caused, people in large numbers showed up to aid those who were hurt. But with all the speculation, I think there’s a bigger picture that’s being painted. The main objective of people who commit acts of terror is to play into people’s fears. Acts of terror are designed to make you feel as if you’re not safe and that the government doesn’t have the means to protect you. No matter how many people are killed and how many are injured, as long as you’re scared, the perpetrators succeed. The acts of valor, kindness, and compassion, though, show a different story. They show the strength of the will of the people. They show a population that says enough is enough and that they are no longer content with living a life of fear. They show that even during some of the most adverse times we’ve been facing as a nation, we can overcome anything.

The night of the explosion, President Barack Obama made a statement that resonated with my sentiment. He said, “We also know this — the American people refuse to be terrorized. Because what the world saw yesterday in the aftermath of the explosions were stories of heroism and kindness, and generosity and love...So if you want to know who we are, what America is, how we respond to evil -that’s it. Selflessly. Compassionately. Unafraid.” The only way we can defeat terrorism is if we refuse to be terrorized. Brian Schneier, a security expert who was interviewed by The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein, summed it up beautifully, “If you are scared, they win. If you refuse to be scared, they lose.” I believe the tides are turning. I believe the way we respond to events like this is changing. We’ve recognized that we can no longer be victims of cowardly attacks, nor can we continue to live in fear. We are America. The land of the free and the home of the brave. A nation that is finally learning that we must refuse to be scared and whose finest days always come after our darkest hours.

“How I Work” featuring U of I students NORA IBRAHIM Opinions columnist

S

omething is stirring in the psyches of all graduating seniors right about now. It manifests itself as a brooding cloud, looming over each graduate’s head. And it is fueled, growing from its stratus status to ginormous, fracking nimbus, every time someone asks, “What are your post-graduation plans?” The impending graduation, for many of us, is a source of mild anxiety, even if we have well-established plans post-May 12. Most of

this anxiety can be attributed to the little mountain of applications, letters of intent, letters of recommendation, forms, paperwork, emails, emails, emails and emails waiting on our desks. My little mountain of work has me thinking how the most successful entrepreneurs manage their workloads. How do the best of the best stay organized, feel inspired and trudge on? In search of some insight, I was traipsing along Lifehacker when I serendipitously stumbled upon this little series called, “How I Work.” Every once in a while, staff writer Tessa Miller will catch up with some of the most creative, hardworking and straight-up crazy businessmen and artists.

The series sheds light on how the greats do it, from pen-and-paper to Evernote, from one’s headphones to absolute silence. Today, I share with you my version of “How I Work” — à la U of I. I talked with four students from very different disciplines, picking apart the ways University of Illinois students entering the real world keep track of their little mountains of work. By talking to these folks, you’ll realize there’s a world of difference between each person’s working style; maybe you will glean a little nugget of wisdom from those around you.

Hi, my name is Katriona Lee, and I’m a senior studying international business .

Hi, my name is Ivette Acevedo, and I’m a senior studying hospitality.

Katriona is out on the Quad, where it’s sunny, giving out free hugs to passersby. I work: spontaneously. I get motivated just outof-the-blue, and I end up getting it all done suddenly, which surprises me.

Ivette is setting up for The Spice Box, a studentrun restaurant associated with the University’s Hospitality Management Program. I work: proactively. It’s all about getting stuff done ahead of time, like working during the weekends, and not getting things done just the night before.

What devices do you use to keep organized? To be honest, the only organizational tool I use is Google Calendar. Pen and paper works best for me otherwise; I like to be able to script things out.

Hi, my name is Ryan Kirby, and I’m a junior studying choral music education. Ryan is singing on the second floor of the Music Building, practicing a German piece for a vocal performance. I work: efficiently. I wouldn’t just practice something right before I perform. I need to structure my time so that I can revisit it and allow time to pass to solidify concepts. What devices do you use to keep organized? I have an app on my iPad that allows me to schedule assignments and their due dates. There’s an app called OmniFocus, which is routed with the structure of “Getting Things Done,” a book that uses the ideas of structures and organizing. How would you describe your workspace? I need to practice somewhere where I’m comfortable being myself and expressing myself. I need to be able to be expressive for an audience later. I need a quiet, clean environment to draw focus, so I’ll usually go to a library.

What devices do you use to keep organized? I’m strictly a pencil-and-paper user. I also use a calendar to pencil in things I have to do. How would you describe your workspace? If you were to look at my desk right now, you’d see it’s very organized. My books are in one place; my notepads are in one place. I always work in a desk.

Hi, my name is Sarah Langer, and I’m a senior studying English and creative writing. Sarah sits at the front desk of the Writing Center at the Undergraduate Library. I work: purposefully. What devices do you use to keep organized? I use the iBook, and I’m actually kind of a nerd, because I keep a lot of to-do lists. If I have a busy week, I’ll keep a notepad full of lists. I also need my iPod, most definitely; I need my music while I’m writing. What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? As far as your career goes, my dad always said that as long as you’re doing what you love, everything will fall into place.

eptember 11, 2001: There was no Facebook, there was no Twitter and few had mobile cell phones. Those who did rarely had text messaging capabilities. And there was certainly no mobile Internet to turn to or photos to post to Instagram. When American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City, we heard about it on television, maybe on the Internet or, for most of us students, word of mouth. When tragedy struck, there was no social media for us to turn to. We could not log onto Facebook to give the victims our deepest sympathies. We could not follow our most trusted news sources on Twitter for up-todate information. We could not send out mass text messages to our loved ones, asking if they were OK. Monday, tragedy struck again in America. This tragedy was really one of the first in the United States as seen through the eyes of social media as it was happening. Videos, photos, sound clips, and firsthand reports were placed immediately online on Twitter and Reddit for anyone to see. The bombs went off around 2:50 p.m. eastern time and within moments the Twitter world knew. Instantly, Reddit had threads on live updates, NSFW images (gore), video, even an AMA from a volunteer near the finish line. This was not just reported on television, but was being reported by even the average citizen. In less than two hours, there were over 700,000 mentions of the Boston Marathon on Twitter alone. Suddenly everyone knew what had happened. There was no need to turn on the radio or television. The news came to you. The news came to your cellphone screen. It came to your computer screen. It was everywhere. It was amazing that anyone could report their first-hand experiences. Even in the wake of a tragedy, I cannot help but think just how amazing technology is and how far it has progressed in just over a decade. As much as I personally have never been the biggest fan of social media, I cannot deny its usefulness in horrific situations such as this. While not all cell phones were getting through, the Internet was still useable for many people. Even the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency tweeted out, “If you are trying to reach friends or family and can’t get through via phone, try texting instead (less bandwidth)” and that was retweeted almost 3,500 times. This wasn’t just about tweeting or logging onto Facebook to say “look at what I’m watching,” emphasizing the I’m. It was about those who used social media for good. A tool for the average citizen to become a hero, rather than just another young adult in the digital age. Social media allowed people to know to get out of the area or help if at all possible. They could find out where to donate blood. They could let people know their homes are open to survivors. They could check in with their loved ones to let them know they were fine or ask if others were all right. And many could view the tragedy uncensored if they wished. News organizations even had to remind people to show caution in what they were reporting to avoid falsifying details. Social media can even spark conspiracies such as the “mystery man on the roof” — a man who was on top of one of the buildings, alone, near the bombing site. Our ability to reach so many people from anywhere in the world in an instant without having to be famous is purely amazing. Many reporters were already on the scene before the bombs went off. The Boston Marathon is one of the most popular races in the world, as it is the oldest, with the first race being held in 1897. It’s what makes the Boston Marathon the dream for many runners — to make the qualifying time to run in the upcoming race. And I would not be surprised if they see a large increase in qualifiers and participants for the 2014 race and an even larger turnout for volunteers. One day, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone posted something on their social media page and ends up becoming a celebrated hero by accidently finding the source of another unfortunate tragedy. Social Media has changed the way we view everything. It has not (yet) solved who did it or why, but it has changed our views.

Gothic literature explores humanity BY ALICE SMELYANSKY STAFF WRITER

At home, Associate Professor Lauren Goodlad can be found reading Jonathan Auxier’s “Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes” to her younger son. She said she thinks it’s a “beautifully written imaginative read,” and it might just be her son’s favorite. In a University classroom, she’s more likely to discuss Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” the vampire narrative that her English 274 class, “The Serial Vampire,” focuses on. And having written books on Victorian literature and the Victorian state, gothic culture and the TV series, “Mad Men,” she has plenty to contribute as the director of the University’s Unit of Criticism and Interpretative Theory. Despite her busy schedule, Goodlad never strays far from a good novel. As an undergraduate at Cornell University, Goodlad was sure that she was going to be a writer, not a literary critic or an English professor. She concentrated on studying literature as a graduate student, and then realized it was the right fit for her. Her first job after receiving a master’s degree from New York University and a Ph.D. from Columbia University was at the University of Washington, and in 2000, she came to the University of Illinois to teach. Goodlad has taught on gothic and vampire themes on and off since her time as a graduate student. “The Serial Vampire” concentrates on an 1897 graphic horror novel, “Dracula,” and incorporates other vampire literature that has been published since. By the end of the semester, all of the students in the class will create their own chapter of “Dracula.” Although Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight” series gained popularity in recent years, Goodlad said most students taking her class may not consider themselves “Twihards.” “I’ve actually never seen ‘Twilight,’” Goodlad said. “When I knew I was going to do this course, I thought, ‘(There is) no point trying to catch up. I’ll just simply admit I’ve never seen it.’ Most students, although they do know ‘Twilight,’ they weren’t interested in watching it.” “Even though we’re reading novels about these monstrous, supernatural beings, we talk about themes that are very

FOLAKE OSIBODU THE DAILY ILLINI

Lauren Goodlad, professor in English, teaches a class on vampires surrounding the novel “Dracula.” relevant to everyday life and humanity as a whole, such as morality and sexuality,” said Lucy Pakhnyuk, sophomore in LAS. “Vampire narratives juxtapose vampires against humans, and by doing so they show us some of the worst and best aspects of humanity.” While Goodlad doesn’t have a favorite vampire, she does enjoy teaching “Dracula,” and said she sees it as a great Victorian novel. While Dracula may not be the attractive, romantic vampire one might find in a 21st century narrative, he is compelling nonetheless. “I think that people are attracted to vampire narratives because they want something that they know is extraordinary, and they want to be surprised,” Goodlad said. “Yet, at the same time, they know that it’s also a way of exploring what it means to be human.” On Tuesdays, the class focuses on vampire-themed works written after “Dracula,” and on Thursdays the discussion comes back to the main narrative. “While many professors fail to connect with students while maintaining an intellectual atmosphere, Professor Goodlad has a seemingly innate ability to challenge the class in a communicable manner,” said Giancarlo Levato, junior in LAS. Though many often mistake Goodlad as an expert in vampire themes, she said she considers herself a Victorianist first. In addition to teaching English 274, she is also working on completing her second book on Victorianism, “The Victorian Geopolitical Aesthetic: Realism, Sovereignty, and Transnational Experience.” In addition to this book, Goodlad published, “Mad Men, Mad World: Sex, Politics, Style, and the 1960s,” earlier this year. She started watching “Mad Men” after its original air date, but never intended to continue with the series past season two. However, after hearing endless hype over the third season, she began regularly reading a series of columns from The New York Times that analyzed the show. One column’s analysis struck her as “not quite right,”

and she began writing a piece that she felt could get it right. “Madmen Yourself” was originally published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, a newspaper and online publication for professors from all areas of academia. From there, the piece was republished in The McGraw Hill Reader. Shortly after, Goodlad held a symposium at the University with Robert Rushing, previous co-director for the Unit of Criticism and Interpretative Theory. After the success of the event, Goodlad invited attendees as well those who did not attend to contribute to the book. Three years later, “Madmen Yourself” became “Mad Men, Mad World: Sex, Politics, Style, and the 1960s,” and was published as a book, receiving positive reviews. Apart from holding symposiums, Goodlad also holds program and events on critical theory and cultural studies within the Unit of Criticism and Interpretive Theory. Along with other members of the unit, she uses a blog called, “Kritik,” which is an online forum for those interested in discussing contemporary theory and cultural studies. At the end of the day, Goodlad still reminds herself to completely unplug and read at least one or two chapters of a book she cares about. “I’m not exactly sure what it’s like to be a college student, but it seems you’re very busy,” she said. “You have a lot of things you want to get done, and in your spare time there’s a lot of temptations to follow social networks, text people and read short pieces on this and that.” But Goodlad believes in the importance of reading novels, and encourages her students to see the value of it as well. “I actually think that reading literature is very important, not necessarily novels that are other fictional genres or other literary genres that are very worthwhile. But novels are what I teach, and I think that people don’t spend enough time reading them,” she said. “They want something that moves a little faster.”

Annual Day of Service, Austin’s Day to kick off C-U’s National Volunteer Week BY ADLAI STEVENSON STAFF WRITER

National Volunteer Week will begin this Sunday as agencies and communities across the country come together to help those in need. And the University, along with local communities, plan to promote the importance of coming together to support each other — even ahead of schedule. Organizations and agencies will participate in Champaign-Urbana’s first annual community and campus Day of Service on Saturday, a day before National Volunteer Week. Vaneitta Goines, program advisor for the Office of Volunteer Programs, said her organization regularly plans events to engage students, faculty and staff in the local community for National Volunteer Week. This year, Goines said the office has taken on a project to package 146,000 meals to feed central Illinois families in the ARC and Ikenberry Commons on Saturday. The meal packaging plan was developed with the help of the Registered Student Organization Illini Fighting Hunger and the National Soybean Research Laboratory on campus. Originally, OVP worked with an organization that brought in food from outside local communities, but the office acknowledged that option’s high cost. “Our reaction was, ‘If we’re paying so much money to bring in food from out of state, there has got to be a better way to produce food for our communities,’” Goines said. “Thankfully, we’ve been able to stage the event for much less cost than it normally would be ... more of the donated dollars and food items can go directly to the people in need instead of paying for shipping items from Florida.” OVP’s meal packaging plan will happen in conjunction with Austin’s Day of Service, another local volunteering event. Todd Salen, the co-founder of Austin’s Day, said the annual event is eponymously named after Austin Cloyd,

a Champaign native who was killed in the Virginia Tech shooting. Salen said Cloyd stood out in the community, and her death took a heavy toll on everyone. “Austin was an amazing public servant who loved to volunteer and do all kinds of things,” Salen said. “A student came up to me several days after she died with an idea that, instead of inventing a scholarship or planting a tree, we should just go out and serve the community in her name.” Saturday signals the sixth anniversary of Austin’s Day, and Salen said projects this year will encompass a number of activities outside of the food packaging on campus. This is in effort to provide more volunteer opportunities in the C-U area for the first annual Day of Service. Several agencies that will offer volunteer opportunities include Habitat for Humanity, C-U Public Health, the Neighborhood Action Committee and the Humane Society, among many others. Several Greek organizations at the University will participate in Austin’s Day activities as well. Celeste Niemann, vice president of service for Panhellenic Council and junior in LAS, said the annual Day of Service will provide a unique opportunity for Greek members to volunteer off-campus. “Greeks typically face a stereotype where they only help out within their own personal philanthropies, and we wanted to challenge that and show we care about the community outside the University,” Niemann said. Niemann and other Greek members will travel to a farm 15 miles off campus on Saturday to help with manual labor. Niemann said she has participated in Austin’s Day individually for the past two years, and hopes that other Greek members will share her enthusiasm. Outside of Austin’s Day and the meal packaging plan, Greek organizations will also keep themselves busy this weekend through their own activities. Niemann said Shi-Ai, a Panhellenic honors soci-

ety, will clean up Frat Park on Sunday. Andy Kessler, philanthropy chair of Kappa Sigma and freshman in Engineering, said his fraternity will clean up all of Daniel Street. Salen and Goines said the number of volunteers have risen in recent years. But with 40,000 students on campus, Goines said she hopes to see more student volunteers reach out in the future. “A lot of people mistakenly believe that they have to choose between volunteering in something that’s more directly beneficial to their career goals, and that’s not true,” Goines said. “There are so many transferable skills that employers are looking for that you can learn through volunteering, like communications and leadership skills that would be valuable for any incoming employee.” The Annual Day of Service has over 1,200 students, faculty and staff registered to package meals, Goines added. But she emphasized that anyone can still register for the event or volunteer for any opportunities this weekend or throughout National Volunteer Week. Goines encouraged everyone to access the Office’s online listserv and C-U Volunteer website for future volunteer opportunities both on and off campus. Amruta Yelamanchili, senior at Centennial High School and president of the school’s Interact Club, said that a large number of high school students turn out every year for Austin’s Day. The day of service is also the biggest event of the year for Yelamanchili’s club, and she said she is happy to see students come together. “Austin’s Day is a great way to make something good out of a terrible tragedy,” Yelamanchili said. “Now, with several other events that will be happening this weekend, people can make a difference in so many ways.”

Men’s basketball adds two new transfers Jon Ekey, Aaron Cosby to join Illinois in fall BY THOMAS BRUCH STAFF WRITER

In a spacious ballroom that elicited a mighty echo with each bounce of the basketball, Illinois was introduced to Jon Ekey. Then a forward for the Illinois State Redbirds, Ekey poured in 14 points while shooting 3-6 from 3-point range in a narrow defeat at the hands of Illinois in the 2011 Cancun Challenge Championship game. If a 3-point shot by Illinois State’s Tyler Brown wasn’t waived off after Brown’s heel glanced the out-of-bounds line, the Redbirds might have delivered the upset against their in-state foe. “It was funky playing in a ballroom,” Ekey said. “But it was definitely a bigtime game, and those are the kind of games I like.” Illinois head coach John Groce announced Wednesday that Ekey, along with Seton Hall guard Aaron Cosby, will transfer to Illinois upon completing their spring semesters. Ekey, a junior, will be eligible to play immediately because of his status as a graduate student, while the sophomore Cosby will sit for the 2013-2014 season per NCAA transfer rules. The transfers of both Ekey and Cosby serve a dual purpose. Ekey will provide a veteran presence and depth to complement the five incoming freshman that otherwise would have logged heavy minutes off the bench. The transfers also fill a cavernous need in the shooting department. “Both guys bring shooting to the table, which is something we wanted to

Prospects given opportunities going to school

Freshman takes down Ohio State’s No. 9 Rola

ARYN BRAUN Sports columnist

Hiltzik, men’s tennis fight until the end against No. 5 Buckeyes

“W

BY J.J. WILSON ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR

Ohio State is a tennis giant. At No. 5 in the country, this season’s Buckeye team has dominated the Big Ten, housing five singles players ranked in the top 100, and three top50 doubles tandems. When they came to Atkins Tennis Center last Friday, Ohio State got much of the usual fight expected year-to-year from the Illinois program. But that program had a new weapon in its arsenal — and he was about to take down the Buckeyes’ No. 1 guy. Freshman Jared Hiltzik, the No. 1 singles player for Illinois this season, would earn the Big Ten Athlete of the Week award by winning all four of his matches, including a victory over Ohio State’s No. 9 Blaz Rola this weekend. Hiltzik has big goals in mind for his time at Illinois, hoping to turn pro one day. Having been ranked No. 1 by TennisRecruiting.com, he entered the 2012-13 season looking to prove himself at a collegiate level. He marked his start with a strong 9-3 record at the end of the fall, good for a No. 114 ranking in singles. But it wasn’t until he defeated then-No. 23 Fred Saba of Duke that he really got the ball rolling. Entering Friday’s match, Hiltzik

His ranking — No. 36 at the time — wasn’t on his mind either. For him, his game relies on focusing match-by-match, point-bypoint. He doesn’t care who is on the other side of the net or feel any extra pressure from his opponent. He’s just there to play great tennis. “I try not to (think of it any differently),” Hiltzik said. “When I start thinking about my opponent, it affects my vision too much.” But to start, Hiltzik would be paired with teammate and close friend Alex Jesse as a double tandem to take on

No. 32 Devin McCarthy and Ille Van Engelen on Court Two. Ohio State took Court Three quickly while Illinois returned fire and won Court One. All eyes fell on Hiltzik and Jesse, who were down 40-15 and tied at 7-7. The rally came and tandems went into a tiebreaker, where Hiltzik and Jesse broke away 7-3, winning the match 9-8 (3) and clinching the doubles point. And though he knew the day was just starting, Hiltzik took a moment to dash to his partner, flash a grin and celebrate with a casual fist bump. “(Our) chemistry I don’t think could

be better,” Jesse said. “Jared and I, not only have similar games on the court, but off the court, hang out all the time and know each other like the back of our heads.” Fifty minutes later, Hiltzik found himself in the middle of the action against Rola, with a 2-1 match score against the Illini staring him in the back. But it didn’t seem to faze Hilztik as he wrapped up the first set 6-4 before finishing out at 7-5 in the second to hand Rola his first loss of the season.

Volleyball must adjust to inexperienced coaching staff Gergen expected to fill void after longtime assistant’s resignation BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

In 2012, youth and inexperience was a detriment to the Illinois volleyball team as they finished a disappointing 14-16 on the year. The Illini relied on young players such as sophomores Anna Dorn and Liz McMahon as well as freshmen Jocelynn Birks and Ali Stark. While the Illini are hoping to have ample experience on the court, they now must deal with new faces filling in on the coaching staff. Longtime assistant coach Jen Oldenburg resigned in December after nine seasons with the program. The Illini stayed within the Big Ten to fill the vacancy and hired Jayme Gergen, an assistant from Ohio State in early January. Gergen is primarily working with middle blockers — she was an All-

American middle at Georgia Tech during her playing career — and will be a key cog in the recruiting process. “I think always one of my strengths as a coach has been getting to know players and people around the program,” Gergen said. “That’s mainly what I’ve been doing so far this spring.” While recruiting for the fall has been finished for some time,Gergen has been in the gym since being hired Jan. 17, and made an immediate impression with the middles. “Jayme did a really good job establishing a connection with us,” sophomore middle blocker Kathryn Polkoff said. “It makes it easier to coach us and make improvements.” Dorn has been sidelined from spring exhibitions because of a knee injury, so Polkoff and redshirt freshman Maddie Mayers have been competing for the second middle spot. With neither having played in a collegiate game, this spring has been essential to their development. “It’s actually OK that Dorn has been out because both of them have gotten a ton of experience and playing time,” Gergen said. “They’re both working

ith the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Bobcats select another talented underclassman leaving early to pursue professional basketball.” Realistically, that’s what normally happens. The past three No. 1 picks illustrate this point nicely. John Wall, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis all made a name for themselves at bigname Division I institutions and then capitalized on their success by declaring for the draft after their freshman year. “Big thanks to Duke and Kentucky. Keep in touch.” In the case of Wall and Davis, that’s the Kentucky way. Head coach John Calipari creates championship-caliber teams by recruiting the best of the best with promises of a one-and-done college career. “Hey, come win a national championship for me and then you’re free to go!” It sounds good in theory, but then they go and lose in the first round of the National Invitational Tournament. Oops. In the end it almost doesn’t matter. Yeah, Kentucky had a major failure of a season compared with their usual standards, but that didn’t stop freshman phenom Nerlens Noel from declaring for the draft. He’ll most likely go somewhere in the top-three picks. Basically, it’s a win-win for Kentucky recruits. Even if they don’t win that elusive national championship, they get the exposure necessary to make the jump to the next level with ease. As if kids leaving school three years early doesn’t seem bad enough, many are in favor of reinstating the rule allowing recently graduated high school seniors to be draft-eligible. While it is possible for high school athletes to be competitive in the NBA — see LeBron James — most kids aren’t anywhere near physically or emotionally ready for that level of play. Proponents of allowing high school seniors to enter the draft always argue that if an athlete were to wait and attend college, or play all the way through college, they run the risk of getting injured, which would ruin the prospects of their professional career. I hate this argument. It asserts that there is a negative side to receiving a college education. Worst-case scenario, if a player does choose to stay until their senior year and then gets injured, they leave school with a college degree. This might be a consolation prize to some when compared with the fame and fortune that the NBA can offer, but big picture: it matters. The same logic can be applied to athletes in other sports as well. Take Matt Barkley for example. He was a big-time player at a big-time school projected to be a top-five pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He chose to come back for his senior season in the hopes of winning a national championship for the Trojans but was then sidelined with a shoulder injury. And yet, he now finds himself

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort shovels snow from the field before the start of a scheduled baseball double-header between the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, in Denver.

Third Mets game postponed in last four days New York tries to adjust to multiple cancellations BY PAT GRAHAM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER — This weather pattern has left the New York Mets in quite a holding pattern. So much so that it’s becoming a concern for manager Terry Collins, who’s worried about his team staying in rhythm in light of all the postponements. For the third time in four days, the Mets had to hang out in the clubhouse instead of hitting hanging curves. The game between New York and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night was postponed as another spring snowstorm passed through the Mile High City. No makeup date was announced, but the teams won’t play a doubleheader on Thursday. The series finale is scheduled to begin at 3:10 p.m. EDT. Lately, waiting on weather reports has become an all-toofamiliar routine for the Mets. Monday’s game was pushed back due to flurries and made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday that was swept by the Rockies. Just to get that game in, team employees, led by Colorado owner Dick Monfort, shoveled

This spring, nothing can cool Gonzalez’s bat. He’s hitting a team-leading .380 with four homers. The Mets have employed a defense against Gonzalez that the San Diego Padres have been utilizing as well. When the slugger is up, they shift the infield over, with third baseman David Wright moving to the shortstop spot, shortstop Ruben Tejada sliding over to the right side of second base and second baseman Daniel Murphy relocating closer to first. “When you’re facing CarGo, you let him have some singles to left field, if that’s what he wants,” Collins explained. “If he wants to push bunts, he can have those. Because he’ll hit more balls over the fence than he will have bunts.” Gonzalez will simply take whatever the defense wants to give him. “They think I’m focused on hitting home runs. You know what, I’ll take advantage of that,” Gonzalez said. “If you want me to take singles, I’ll take singles.”

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears players and their new coaches are promising not to tamper with what worked in the past on defense. So while conducting their first minicamp practices this week under coach Marc Trestman and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, only the faces have changed. The defensive scheme looks identical to the same 4-3, cover-2 zone approach they used under Lovie Smith to lead the league in forcing turnovers the past nine years. “Obviously Mel being here and being a new guy from a defensive standpoint he’s going to put his spin on things and his take,” Trestman said Wednesday. Tucker sounded an awful lot like Smith did when asked about the chief aim of his scheme. “It’s all about taking the ball away and getting to the quarterback,” he said. Even the way Bears defenders practice looks the same. Under Smith, defenders started a tradition of scooping up incomplete passes and returning them to repeatedly simu-

late returns after turnovers. They’re still doing it. “It made us a successful defense, so why change it?” free safety Chris Conte said. “We have mostly the same players. The same mentality is still there. And these coaches are preaching the same thing now that our coaches were before.” What doesn’t look the same is the lineup. The face of the franchise since 2000, Brian Urlacher, is gone and former Bronco D.J. Williams is manning his middle linebacker spot while former Carolina linebacker James Anderson is playing the strong side linebacker spot formerly held down by Nick Roach. Williams had only one start and played in seven games last year due to a violation of the banned substance policy and a DUI conviction. “He’s a guy who has come here to reinvent himself, so to speak,” Trestman said.” Still, Urlacher had been a leader and the face of the Bears for 13 years. Urlacher remains unsigned. Bears general manager Phil Emery said he could “never say never” but he has moved on without Urlacher.

Softball cancels game against DePaul due to inclement weather BY NICHOLAS FORTIN STAFF WRITER

The DePaul softball team will have to wait until next season to exact revenge on Illinois. The Illini won the their first matchup with the Blue Devils 4-1 in mid-February and were scheduled to play DePaul at home on Wednesday but the game

was canceled due to inclement weather. The DePaul game is the second midweek game of the year that Illinois has had to cancel due to poor weather, neither of which was rescheduled. The first was against Illinois State on March 27. Illinois also had to cancel two

weekend games against Missouri and move an additional three games to double headers because of field conditions earlier this season. After being swept by Minnesota last weekend at home — a series that was initially scheduled to be played in Minneapolis but was moved due to weath-

er — the Illini will look to end its losing streak this weekend when they return to action against Indiana in a three-game series scheduled to start at Eichelberger Field on Friday.

Texas Rangers get taste of Chicago weather No makeup date announced for rained out Cubs game â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Tuesday) night wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad, just a little chilly but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Chicago and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to put up with that,â&#x20AC;? first baseman Mitch Moreland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kind of dealt with it the last few games anyways.â&#x20AC;? It mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been more than â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little chilly.â&#x20AC;? The gametime temperature Tuesday night was 39 degrees with the wind blowing in off nearby Lake Michigan.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Texas Rangers are getting accustomed to this cold, damp weather. The game between the Rangers and Chicago Cubs scheduled for Wednesday night was rained out. It was postponed two hours before it was supposed to start at Wrigley Field. No makeup date was announced. The teams are set to play Thursday afternoon.

ington said it was worse the conditions heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s felt crosstown at U.S. Cellular Field, where the White Sox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can tell you what, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on the south side when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same cold on the north side,â&#x20AC;? Washington said. Texas opened the interleague series with a 4-2 win. Before Wednesday, the Rangers had played their last five games with the temperatures below 50 degrees, including four at Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Safeco Field. So, for a warm-weather team, Texas is rather well-versed in ways to beat low temperatures and tough conditions.

The Rangers will skip Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled starter, Justin Grimm, in favor of Alexi Ogando on Thursday. Yu Darvish will pitch Friday against Seattle regardless of Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather. Grimm will pitch Sunday and Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner, Derek Holland, will open the Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; set Monday with the Los Angeles Angels. And if the Chicago weather continues to be a problem, there are a few Rangers who know how to deal with the raw conditions. The Rangers have former Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, along with ex-Cubs Geovany Soto and Jeff Baker. The three spent parts of a com-

bined 20 years in Chicago, and certainly experienced some miserable April days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing you keep coming back to is that both teams are playing in it,â&#x20AC;? said Baker, who spent parts of four years with the Cubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably not going to have your great individual performance that day but at the same time all that matters is beating that other team and going out there and scoring more runs.â&#x20AC;? Moreland said he was told to expect what the Rangers are getting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it is in Chicago this time of the year,â&#x20AC;? Moreland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of it.â&#x20AC;?

That isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to say the conditions are pleasant at Wrigley. Baker remembered that last season he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear short sleeves under his jersey until June at Wrigley. His mindset, however, never changed. It was always about winning and trying to block out the raw weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at it that way, it keeps you sane and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus on how miserable it is,â&#x20AC;? Baker said. Even with the weather, the rare trip to Wrigley was still a special one for many Rangers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to deal with that,â&#x20AC;? Moreland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wrigley part of it kind of overshadows the weather.â&#x20AC;?

Defensive shortstop finds pitchers unaware BY JEFF KIRSHMAN STAFF WRITER

The scouting report on Thomas Lindauer is dated. It was a simple formula: Throw fastballs inside and breaking pitches away. Mix those up, and it was likely Lindauer would take care of the rest. Even if pitchers made a mistake and left the ball up in the zone, Lindauer could only punish them so much. While a relatively proficient power hitter in high school, Lindauer had yet to send a ball over the fence in his first two seasons at Illinois. Opposing pitchers have resumed the approach this season, but the results haven’t been the same. Thirty-three games into the 2013 season, Lindauer, the wiry shortstop for the Illinois baseball team, is the Big Ten leader in home runs. “I think opposing pitchers have a scouting report and obviously they haven’t made an adjustment on that,” said Eric Snider, Illinois’ hitting coach. Snider attributes Lindauer’s power surge to a developed maturity at the plate and another year to physically develop,

BRAUN FROM PAGE 1B with a degree in communications from USC and a shot to play in the NFL. Maybe he won’t be the No. 1 overall pick, but he’ll get a chance to play professional football. Poor him, right? The NFL holds slightly different draft regulations in that athletes have to complete their junior year of college before they can become draft eligible. The same argument can be made about the possibility of injury, but realistically, having three years of college football under your belt leaves athletes more mentally and physically pre-

Cosby sank 40 percent of his 3-point attempts last season — an admirable statistic for a guard playing in the rigorous Big East, but one that doesn’t tell the whole story. According to Groce, Cosby played significant minutes at the point guard position, which put him in the

which has resulted in faster bat speed. Lindauer’s improved bat speed, Snider says, allows for him to tuck his hands in so that he can put the barrel of the bat on the ball better. There’s a noticeable lift on the ball when Lindauer uncoils his 6-foot-2, 170-pound frame into his smooth, relaxed swing. He’s no longer the slap-hitting shortstop renowned for his defense. He’s more. “I honestly didn’t expect this at all,” Lindauer said. “I was surprised that I hit two or three, and now this.” Not that he couldn’t hit before. It’s just where the ball is going. His .278 average is all but identical to last season, though it is a considerable bump from his .229 showing in the Northwoods League over the summer. Lindauer insists he doesn’t know where the extra power has come from. “I guess I’m just swinging with a little more power,” Lindauer said. Lindauer’s power deviates from the traditional leadoff prototype, but he doesn’t completely break the mold. It’s still his job to extend at-bats so that batters later in the lineup can get a better understanding of opposing pitchers. Snider said the goal

is to have the opposing starting pitcher’s pitch count in the 80s by the time the fifth inning roles around. “The difference between our club and a lot of different clubs is that we have a very strong bullpen,” Snider said. “The teams that we’ve been facing, if we get to the bullpen, we have a pretty good chance to win.” Lindauer’s approach at the plate seems to have benefited the rest of Illinois’ lineup. Every Illini starter recorded a hit in Tuesday’s 12-1 win against Illinois State. The win was Illinois’ fourth straight, with it notching double-figure hits in each of those wins. “Everybody knew he was a great defensive shortstop, but I don’t think anybody saw this coming,” said Justin Parr, who extended his career-best hitting streak to 21 Tuesday with a bunt single in the fourth inning. “I don’t think anyone was expecting him to lead the Big Ten in home runs.” The defense remains. Owner of a career .970 fielding percentage, Lindauer has always taken pride in being a complete player, even when others question the enjoyment he gets from playing the field. “People think I’m crazy, but I really do

Lindauer returned to the leadoff spot — his favorite place in the order to hit ever since he was young — on April 6 against Indiana with a single in his first at-bat and two hits on the day, solidifying his place in the order after spending much of the season down in the lineup. He replaced Will Krug, who had emerged as the team’s leadoff man early in the season before he was hit on the hand with a pitch in Game One of the Indiana series. It appears Lindauer’s there to stay. Two of his three hits were home runs in Illi-

nois’ sweep of Purdue last weekend. But Ohio State’s pitching trumps Purdue’s, a team that entered the weekend last in the Big Ten in ERA. The Buckeyes, whom the Illini face this weekend, are second in the conference in ERA and lead the Big Ten with the lowest opposing batting average. But while Illinois knows its opponent, the Buckeyes, at least when it comes to Lindauer, might be in for a surprise.

pared for the next level. I don’t think you can say the same for kids right out of high school, or even basketball players coming out after only one year, even if they are playing on a high level team like Kentucky or Duke. There will always be exceptions to the rule. In fact, most No. 1 picks are probably exceptions, but experience does have a direct correlation to success. This leads me to believe that the NFL is more cognizant of the development needed in its players in order be competitive. In terms of which draft is more fun to watch, it’s a toss up. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell gets booed before he

reads each pick, which I believe fans, players and coaches alike find hilarious; however, the NFL draft can definitely drag on. The first round is the most exciting because it’s all the celebrity players everyone’s been hearing about all year, but the enthusiasm tapers off as the night goes on. My freshman year here, I decided to watch all seven rounds. Why? I’m way too obsessed with football and I had nothing better to do. I don’t recommend it. Stick to the first two or three rounds, and if something crazy happens, you’ll hear about it from a friend who decides to do what I did two years ago. The NBA Draft moves at a

much faster pace, but a lot of good players get overlooked because there are only 60 picks total. The Lottery picks are pretty much pre-determined which makes for much less drama overall. Maybe it’s because I’m a girl, but in both drafts one of my favorite parts is seeing what horrible suit combinations the first round hopefuls have put together for themselves. If you want a laugh, google “Jalen Rose draft suit.” You’re welcome.

“I think it’s a great achievement for him,” head coach Brad Dancer said. “I think his aspirations and goals are higher, which is always nice. You don’t want someone sitting there, protecting what they’ve done. We talk a lot about that: ‘Great job so far, great work, you’ve gotten there because of your work either, now let’s take it a step further.’” Hiltzik seemed to follow Dancer’s words, as he brought his game against Penn State two days later and downed another tandem paired with Jesse (8-4) before a 6-4, 7-5 victory in sin-

difficult position of hoisting up contested 3-point heaves as the shot clock wound down on offensive possessions. That he shot at such a high clip under such duress impressed Groce while he was searching for prospective transfer players. With the addition of Ekey and Cosby, Groce still has one scholarship open for next season. Ideally, Groce said he would like to add another guard who can handle the ball and shoot while Cosby sits next year as well as extra frontcourt depth, but he’s

determined to be picky in that process and will select another transfer only based on fit. “We hit a home run in terms of fit (with Ekey and Cosby),” Groce said. “Our objective is fitting specific needs. If we can’t fit a need, we’re comfortable rolling that last scholarship.” Unlike Cosby, Ekey figures to contribute significantly to next season’s rotation. The 6-foot-7 forward will replace the role often filled by departing senior Tyler Griffey as the tall shooter in the pick and roll game.

Unlike Griffey’s more earthbound athleticism, Ekey possesses a sneaky athletic prowess that allows him to guard both guards and forwards. In three seasons, Ekey ranks as the sixth-best shot blocker in Illinois State history. “Groce had me as the pickand-pop guy or the guy that’s ready in the corner when guys get in the lane and need to kick it out,” Ekey said. “I’m crafty and can get open and get putbacks with my athleticism.” Ekey will study in the gradu-

ate sports management program that will add to his business administration degree he will receive next month from Illinois State. He also has a game already circled on the calendar. A Missouri native, Ekey knows the magnitude of the Braggin’ Rights rivalry between Illinois and Missouri.
