Miles addresses SI report’s allegations

Horsemanship class teaches students practical skills

Lawrence Barreca Sports Writer

Jonathan Olivier Contributing Writer

A group of animal science students are trading in their desks, notebooks and cramped classrooms for saddles, bridles and reins a few hours a week for the College of Agriculture’s basic horsemanship class at BREC’s Farr Park Equestrian Center. The course was created in 2011 as a means to give animal science students an in-depth understanding of horses through a classroom and, most importantly, a lab setting. Animal science instructor Laura Smith lectures students twice a week in a classroom where they learn equine science. But for two hours a week, lab instructor KC Annison oversees a more handson experience where students get practical knowledge. “A lot of the problems we see in the equine industry is that people coming out of college don’t have a whole lot of experience,” said

LSU coach Les Miles has had better weeks. Sports Illustrated began releasing its five-part series on the Oklahoma State football program earlier this week, with part one involving the money aspect of Miles’ time as head coach of the Cowboys. Wednesday morning, SI released the second installment of the story, which related to academic misconduct at OSU during Miles’ tenure. Miles addressed the issue at his Wednesday evening press conference, where he maintained he ran the OSU program correctly. “I have a very strong feeling that this thing was done right,” Miles said. “I wasn’t there at every place all the time. That being said, the things we did, we did right.” Miles spoke with his current squad about the reports, telling his players they have been treated equally. Miles didn’t want the issue to become a distraction for his players with Kent State looming. “I said, ‘Frankly, I’ve treated MILES, see page 15


Saudi Club remembers victims of Sept. 11 attacks on anniversary William Morris Contributing Writer

While most students at the Student Involvement Fair on Wednesday displayed colorful trifold posters and multicolored handouts, one group, The Saudi Club, decided to do things its own way. Because the fair fell on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Saudi Club wanted to take the opportunity to make a

gesture of friendship and inform students that they too mourn what happened that day 12 years ago, according to Saud Al Otibi, petroleum engineering senior and vice president of the club. Outside of the Student Union, the group gathered behind a table overflowing with more than a hundred red, yellow and orange roses, handing out the flowers to passersby as they crossed the group’s path. “We hope that the flowers

are a gesture to students that we grieve with Americans for those that were lost on Sept. 11,” Otibi said. “Today is an important day to the American people, and we want to share that with the students.” Otibi said he wants people to know Saudi Arabia is more than the world’s largest producer of oil; it’s a place full of culture, art and religion.

INTERNATIONAL Prince Harry discusses being an uncle, seeing Prince George smile LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry says he loves being an uncle, telling children at an awards ceremony that he’d just witnessed the baby who may one day be king crack a smile. Harry, who was pushed back to fourth-in-line to the British throne following the birth of his brother’s son, Prince George, said Wednesday he’d just visited the 1 ½-month-old royal, who was taking a bath. Harry told 9-year-old Nikki Christou that it was the “first time I’ve seen him smile.” Car bomb explodes at Libyan Foreign Ministry building in Benghazi TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A car bomb tore through a Libyan Foreign Ministry building in the eastern city of Benghazi on Wednesday, a powerful reminder of lawlessness in the North African nation on the anniversary of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate there as well as the 2001 terror attacks in the United States. Prime Minister Ali Zidan issued a stern warning to militias blamed for much of the violence that has plagued Libya since the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi two years ago.

Rebels let down by President Obama’s choice to avoid military action BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian opposition forces feel let down and more divided than ever because of President Barack Obama’s decision to seek a diplomatic path to disarming Damascus of its chemical weapons. Many rebels who had held out hopes that U.S.-led strikes on President Bashar Assad’s government would help tip the scales as the two sides faced a deadly stalemate said America has indirectly given the embattled leader a second wind as a statesman negotiating with world powers.

Las Vegas woman successfuly delivers quintuplets at Phoenix hospital

Five arrested after botched robbery results in Slidell man’s death

PHOENIX (AP) — A Las Vegas mother is resting Wednesday after delivering a healthy set of quintuplets in a suburban Phoenix hospital, bringing five new additions to her family’s already full house. Evonne Derrico, 33, gave birth to three girls and two boys after carrying the babies for eight months, about four weeks longer than the national average for quints. Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten were being cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit. Court records reveal more information about Dallas serial rapist suspect

SLIDELL (AP) — A botched robbery led to a fatal weekend shooting that resulted later in the arrest of five people, Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith said Wednesday. The victim was 23-year-old Leighton Powe (pow) Jr., whose body was found Saturday. The investigation started after St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies and Slidell firefighters received calls about a body found on a road just outside the city limits, and a truck that was burning on another road. Smith said one suspect in the case had arranged for three others to meet Powe behind a Slidell store.

DALLAS (AP) — The south Dallas crime-watch volunteer accused of four rapes preyed on women as they walked late at night through the neighborhood he appeared to protect, sometimes assaulting them while he held a gun to their heads, according to police affidavits released Wednesday. Van Dixson, 38, faces four counts of aggravated sexual assault in the attacks in his neighborhood of Fair Park, where he was known by some residents for walking the streets at night, ostensibly to watch for criminals.


Deon Derrico and his wife Evonne Derrico, with their four older children, welcomed quintuplets Wednesday in Mesa, Ariz.

Fla. pastor arrested before he could burn thousands of Qurans MULBERRY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida pastor has been arrested before he could set fire to almost 3,000 Qurans. Polk County sheriff’s officials say the Rev. Terry Jones and his associate pastor were arrested on unspecified felony charges on Wednesday. A news conference is scheduled for later Wednesday to announce specific charges. Media reports show he was stopped in a pickup truck that was towing a metal trailer filled with Qurans soaked in kerosene.

Sept. 11 monument defaced with cardboard images of burning planes LAFAYETTE (AP) — Police are trying to find out who placed two cardboard cutout images of crashing planes at the 9/11 Memorial in downtown Lafayette. Police say the graffiti was apparently placed at the monument early Wednesday morning. KATC TV reports the 9/11 monument is a 1-by-100 scale of both the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. It includes three beams from the World Trade Center.

While students settle into their residence halls on campus, they may find a new and somewhat unexpected neighbor living next door.

Neely Walker, LSU Ag Center equine extension specialist. “They have book smarts, but not practical understanding of being with the horses. That was our overall goal; to build this class to help people who want to be in this industry be more effective. When they go to get a job they can know what they are doing.” Students are assigned a specific horse to learn with during the semester, though instances can arise that may make a switch necessary. Skill levels may warrant another horse that would work better with a specific student, Walker said. All of the horses are different, and they each have their own personalities, according to Amy Lang, BREC representative at Farr Park. Lang works closely with the horses and said the lab is just as good for them as it is for

the students. “It’s good for them to get out and meet new people,” she said. “The horses have been very good so far.” The students learn to lead their horses properly and correct riding practices as the semester progresses, said teacher assistant and animal sciences junior Michael Martin. “They learn grooming and safe ways to do everything,” he said. Instead of pouring out what is learned in labs onto paper, tests and quizzes involve proper demonstration of grooming, safety and riding techniques. Walker said the nature of the lab section helps prepare animal science students for a future within the equine industry, but may also be the beginning of a bigger role within the college. “We have big hopes and dreams that we will be able to

create an equine science concentration within the College of Agriculture,” Walker said. “This was the hallmark class we thought would build up a lot of interest.” Though plans are still developing regarding the concentration, Walker said an equine specialization would increase the chances of University graduates getting jobs in his or her field. “You have to have a lot of experience,” she said. “You have to have someone to vouch for you. People put a lot of time in their farm or business; they aren’t going to hire just anyone. You have to prove to [them] that you know what you are talking about.”

2011. It didn’t come down the chimney to find a home under the tree. It wasn’t wrapped in gaudy paper and a bow. Instead, it came in the form of commitments from Canadian superstars Emma Fletcher and Summer Clarke. Fletcher and Clarke committed on back-to-back days in the final month of 2011, securing a bright future for the Tigers. Clarke is one of the most feared forwards in her class, and she’s already netted two goals on a team-leading 23 shots this season. Fletcher, a prolific distributor in the midfield, is tied for the most assists on the squad with four. The duo’s relationship has its roots in the British Columbia Provincial U-13 team, where Clarke and Fletcher dominated the pitch for four years. Playing together for that long has made the freshmen a formidable one-two punch. “They’re the best of friends, and I think that relationship carries over onto the field,” Lee said. “They’re very comfortable and familiar with each other in attack, and they’ve got a relationship that’s built on years of playing together. In terms of on the field, they’re really comfortable with each other’s movements; there’s a little bit of a sixth sense between them that certainly is helpful to us.” Lee said he identified Clarke and Fletcher from a young age because of how their skill sets fit with his coaching style, and that style was exactly what lured Fletcher to Baton Rouge.

New recruits energize team Taylor Curet Sports Contributor

On an early September afternoon, an aluminum clink alludes to more than just the routine can of tennis balls being opened: It’s an attitude fresher than the fumes of those vacuum-sealed fuzz-balls, surfacing among the LSU women’s tennis team. Five months prior, the Lady Tigers walked off of Mississippi State’s maroon courts after falling 4-0 to Vanderbilt in the 2013 SEC Tournament. The defeat ended LSU’s season with a 2-13 SEC record, and a 3-15 mark against nationally ranked teams. Fast forward to September, and the Lady Tigers’ carry a raw perspective into the upcoming season. A crisp outlook that takes root from the five new players that join the women’s squad this fall. Three freshmen — Skylar

Holloway, Gabrielle Otero, Abigail Owens — along with junior transfer Noel Scott, now don the purple and gold. Freshman Joana Vale Costa of Portugal will unite with the group in spring 2014. “It’s been exciting to watch how the new people and their enthusiasm is motivating even our returnees,” said head coach Julia Sell. “They’re feeding off each other. Our returnees have the experience of being here but you have some kids coming in that have more experience with competing, and that combination has just been fun to watch.” Sell’s incoming class claims the No. 14 spot on the Tennis Recruiting Network’s spring rankings, marking the highest-ranked recruiting class in LSU history. As she hits practice balls, Otero’s 5-foot-5-inch frame still manages to put power behind her forehands. The Albuquerque, N.M. native has been linked to a racket

since she was 3. A five-star recruit out of La Cueva High School, Otero noted the main difference between home and LSU is that she’s used to practicing against men rather than women. Like Otero, University of Texas transfer Scott has played in Women’s Tennis Association tournaments and transitioned easily at LSU. Scott posted a 21-18 record in her sophomore season at Texas, including wins against top 10 players. Sell said Otero and Scott have the ability to contribute right away for the Lady Tigers. “[Noel]’s probably one of the more experienced American players we’ve ever had here in program history, even before my time.” Sell said. “[Otero and Scott] both want to be pros. They’re not looking just to get TENNIS RECRUITS, see page 11

Tigers await back-to-back games Chris Abshire Senior Reporter

Everybody’s working for the weekend, especially the LSU soccer team. Though soccer is not a sport meant to be played at a high level twice within 48 hours, the Tigers are hitting the familiar Friday-Sunday turnarounds that are the hallmark of Southeastern Conference play. “Traditionally, games on Friday are really well-played, attractive matches,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. “Sunday games get bogged down in fitness-related lethargy and tired legs. It becomes a real mental challenge for both teams. The overall level of play takes a hit.” For the first time, the SEC adopted a “1-2-2-1” format this fall to replace the old format, which featured teams playing Friday-Sunday slates throughout conference. Under the new system, SEC squads will have one-game weekends

sandwiching consecutive weekends with two games. The move was partially inspired by the conference’s expansion and partially by several years of coaches pushing to eliminate some grueling Sunday soccer. “It took three or four years to get that through administrative checkoffs, spreading everything out,” Lee said. “You lose a week of non-conference play by doing that, but us as coaches felt it was necessary.” The new system didn’t prevent Lee from tailoring the Tigers’ nonconference schedule to mimic the weekend doubles. LSU split a pair of games in the Minnesota Gold Classic last weekend, earning a win against then-No. 13 USC on Sunday, and will travel to Houston for games versus Rice and Stephen F. Austin this weekend. “We’re just now getting into these Friday-Sundays, so they’re good tests to see where our legs are,” said senior goalkeeper Megan

Kinneman. “It’s definitely difficult to go back-to-back so quick, but everyone is doing it.” Junior midfielder Alex Arlitt didn’t have much sympathy for her goalkeeper. With soccer midfielders typically running several miles per match, Arlitt said Sunday games tend to bog down. “They can feel more physical, just because everyone’s tired and closer to the ball, not trying to push the play forward,” she said. To prepare the players for the grind, weeklong monitoring goes into ensuring maximum fitness for the short turnarounds each weekend. Sleep schedules, time of meals, post-match “cool down” exercises and adjusted practice times are closely tracked, though more so in recent years. “We’re much more cognizant in the role of nutrition and just general life behaviors. It’s a 24/7 process,” Lee said. “It starts right from the final whistle of the Friday game and

really never stops until a season is over.” Lee said that rigorous regime has created an advantage for LSU on Sundays, when the Tigers tend to be the fitter squad. “Our Sunday fitness level is generally noticeably better than the teams we’re playing,” he said. “We’re as prepared as you can be, and it ends up giving us a leg up.”

He’s not just spitballing there or making an observation favorable to his team without any tangible evidence. After all, LSU is a sterling 227-5 in Sunday matches following a Friday contest since 2008. Contact Chris Abshire at; Twitter: @Abshire_Chris


Pardo learns to manage games as Tigers’ setter Tyler Nunez Sports Writer

The setter in volleyball often draws comparisons to quarterback in football or point guard in basketball. While the position may not garner the same attention or praise as similar spots in other sports, it bears the same amount of responsibility and importance, as a vast majority of offensive plays run through it. A good setter must act as an offensive coach, reading and predicting the actions of everyone on the court, communicating what they see to their teammates and reacting as quickly as possible. “You can’t succeed without it,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. Flory called the setter the most important position to fill when recruiting. She and her staff struck gold when they landed junior setter

Malorie Pardo from League City, Texas, in 2011. Setting is in Pardo’s blood. She uses her mother, a decorated former setter for the University of Houston, as a perpetual source of inspiration and competition. “I’ve always aspired to be better than her,” Malorie said. “I want to be better than my mom. I want to have better stats. I want to do everything she did plus one.” Her mother always attempts to help her improve, and although she may not always want to admit it, Malorie said she tries to heed all the advice her mother gives. “She’s always been in my ear about doing little things,” Pardo said. “ ... I might say ‘Be quiet. I got it,’ but it stays with me.” Since becoming a Tiger, Pardo has amassed 2,576 assists, putting her at sixth on LSU’s all-time list,

just 177 shy of surpassing Randi Winn and improving to No. 5. Due to the tenacity and drive Pardo displayed during the recruiting process, Flory said she saw the relatively undersized setter as a prospect with limitless potential. She won the starting job as a freshman and tallied 1,230 assists, earning her 2011 First-Team Southeastern Conference All-Freshman honors. Pardo added 1,055 to her total in her sophomore season, making her just the eighth Tiger to eclipse 2,000 assists and the first to record back-to-back 1,000-assist seasons since Katie Kubena in 2001 and 2002. Sophomore outside hitter Cati Leak said she finds comfort knowing she has a reliable teammate like Pardo to set up her shots. “We trust Mal to put us in the

right situations,” Leak said. “She is obviously showing that she is doing that because she is so high up in the rankings.” Now with two years under her belt, Pardo has reached a new level of productivity according to Flory. “Malorie has evolved from a very good athlete who set to being a true quarterback as a setter who understands how to run an offense and how to create opportunities for her hitters,” Flory said. “That evolution itself, I don’t know that I can explain how valuable that is to our program.” In six games this season, Pardo has accumulated 291 helpers this season and is No. 2 in the NCAA with 12.65 assists per set. Pardo said she had no idea she ranked that highly, and, frankly, she doesn’t care. The only stat she’s worried

about reads “6-0” right now, and as far as she’s concerned, “LSU” should replace her name on the stat sheets. “It’s not just me,” Pardo said. “My passers give me the opportunity to make these things happen, and my hitters put the ball away for me. It’s very nice to have a team I can make these big strides with.” Pardo will not know if she succeeds in bettering her mother until she plays her last game for LSU. But she will get the opportunity to take down her mother’s alma mater on Sept. 21 when the Tigers travel to Houston to take on the Cougars in the Flo Hyman Collegiate Cup.

The Weeknd, “Kiss Land”

Republic Records, XO Records

The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, has finally released his much-anticipated debut studio album. The R&B singer’s fanbase skyrocketed after releasing three critically acclaimed mixtapes in 2011, followed by a compilation album in 2012. The Weeknd has a unique, selfdeprecating sound, and this album takes it to a whole new level. The slow tempos and haunting echoes create a dark tone, with his powerful vocals taking the forefront. His trembling, falsetto register on the ‘80s-inspired track “Wanderlust” sounds especially similar to Michael Jackson’s “Bad.” The Weeknd strays away from his depressive comfort zone a bit with catchy, upbeat tracks like “Belong to the World” and “Odd Look.” The album as a whole feels more toned down compared to his gritty, chilling mixtapes. But even with a more mainstream feel, the sexual lyrics and captivating sounds are sure to please any fan of The Weeknd. KATIE DAIGREPONT

Earth, Wind & Fire, “Now, Then & Forever”

Columbia Records

Earth, Wind & Fire’s 20th studio album “Now, Then & Forever” furthers the band’s tradition of funky jazz-pop, now entering its fifth decade. Only co-founders Verdine White and Philip Bailey, two of the original 10 members, remain in the now 11-piece ensemble. The single “Night of My Life” is all the soaring falsettos and jubilant horn you could want in an Earth, Wind & Fire song, but modern digital layering obscures the music’s charms. At certain points, the mash of instruments and voices sounds cacophonous. After an eight-year break, this album disappoints in its delivery of a tried-and-true formula which is based in nostalgia and not quality. It’s disheartening to hear an iconic group come off as out-of-touch and boring because of its inability to experiment. Listening to “September” on repeat would better serve your Earth, Wind & Fire needs than this new album. SAMANTHA BARES

[ D] “Riddick”

Universal Studios

It’s a Vin Diesel sci-fi; I didn’t exactly go in with the highest expectations. Still, though, they should have been a little lower. No movie has ever made me as uncomfortable as “Riddick” did. The scripting was at a level of awkward I have never experienced. Almost every line spoken made me cringe in discomfort, especially those of the only female character in the film who hinted toward her sexuality with each word. There is no way of even knowing whether or not the actors were any good because the writing was so, so bad. Also, I get that Vin Diesel is indestructible, but let’s not push it with having him survive a life-threatening situation every 30 seconds. It’s exhausting. My favorite part, though, is how the writers still managed to work the typical horror film scene of a woman showering into this sci-fi disaster.

Janelle Monáe, “The Electric Lady”

Purple Ribbon Records

Songstress Janelle Monáe’s sophomore album “The Electric Lady” dropped on September 10 to much hype, and Monáe delivered. The album had a variety of featured artists like Prince, Erykah Badu and Miguel. Along with fantastic collaborations, this album had a good mix of upbeat songs and slower songs. Janelle Monáe’s voice is just raspy enough and her lyrics both intrigue and empower. The radio interludes on the album are also a nice touch. As a highly anticipated album of the season, “The Electric Lady” is a hit in my book. The “Dance Apocalyptic” is a must hear on this album. If you’re into soulful tunes and smooth beats be sure to listen to this

[ A]


Arcade Fire, “Reflektor”


Arcade Fire’s latest single “Reflektor,” from the upcoming album of the same name, continues in the band’s tradition of tweaking its sound just enough to stay fresh while still retaining the typical nostalgia-infused tunes the band is known for. Unlike previous songs, their latest offering, produced by James Murphey of LCD Soundsystem fame, showcases the dancier, disco stylings heard in previous releases like “Sprawl II” and “Black Mirror.” With horns and synths accompanying Win Butler’s gothic croon, Murphey’s influence is undeniable on the single and surely a sign of things to come for the upcoming album, set to be released on Oct. 28. Even though the single is unquestionably, unexpectedly groovy, it comes nowhere near the anthemic heights of Arcade Fire’s debut “Funeral.” But that’s not to say you can fault the band for trying.

EDITOR’S PICK: 2 Chainz, “B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime” Def Jam Recordings If you like 2 Chainz, you’ll like his new album, “B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime.” But let’s talk about the 26-page cook book that 2 Chainz has concocted to accompany every track of the deluxe version of the album. I know that sounds completely ridiculous, but it’s also ridiculously awesome. Not only does every recipe look and sound delicious, but the cooking instructions are seasoned with helpful “#MeTime” suggestions from 2 Chainz himself. A few samples: “POSITION YOURSELF IN A ROOM SURROUNDED BY A HANDFUL OF TVS PLAYING SPORTSCENTER WITH THE SOUND OFF,” “DRAPE YOURSELF IN AN ADIDAS SWEATSUIT, CHAINZ N THANGS,” “GET A MANICURE AND PEDICURE” and “SIT BACK, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, PLAY ‘LIVE AND LEARN (IT WILL)’ AND EAT SHRIMP & GRITS WITH THE HOMIES.” You need this KACI YODER Entertainment Editor in your life.

Lorde poised to take over world

“But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece/ Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash/ We don’t care/ We aren’t caught up in your love affair” C o m ing from a 16-year-old who calls herSAMANTHA BARES self “Lorde,” Entertainment Writer an alternate feminine version of the royal designation lord, the song “Royals” should be another anthem celebrating the foolish dreams of riches-obsessed youths. It’s not. Lorde’s music is all over campus right now. I listened to “Tennis Club” in the quad the other day and someone mistook it for a ringtone. This may not be the age when polyphonic beeping song covers reigned supreme, but a ringtone still says a lot about a person. Her main appeal is that she appeals to everyday, working people. She goes on to sing in “Royals” that she and her friends count their cash on the train rides to parties, satisfied that they “didn’t come from money.” The New Zealand native, born Ella Yelich-O’Connor, has been singing, songwriting and guitarplaying since age 13 under Columbia Records, yet, until a couple weeks ago, she had never been on a plane. Her parents are a Kiwi chemical engineer and poet, which, while not exactly blue-collar, doesn’t shout “regular tea with the queen.” She has caught on with a variety of audiences because of the variety of influences she draws from, without a sense of judgement or appropriation. She loves literature as well as Nicki Minaj raps, but her songs don’t feel as though she is trying to

emulate either. She recently covered Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor” in concert, but she is no Miley Cyrus, asking for music that sounds black from songwriters to promote an image she has no right to for the black women whose asses she’s slapping in her videos. But she’s also not dropping lines of Eliot or Salinger to impress us. There’s something unself-conscious in her style that is intriguing for such a young artist. Lorde’s criticism is tongue-incheek, whether she’s scorning the life of excess celebrated in many rap and pop lyrics or poking at the folly of youth — like in her single

“Tennis Court”: “Don’t you think that it’s boring how people talk/ Making smart with their words again, well I’m bored/ Because I’m doing this for the thrill of it, killin’ it/ Never not chasing a million things I want” If the popularity of “The Love Club EP” she released in March is any indication, her first studio album “Pure Heroine” should fire up the commoners faster than a bread shortage. Keep an eye out this month for its release. Contact Samantha Bares at

Twerking should be respected as fun, cultural tradition

By now most of us have heard about twerking. The bootypopping dance involves bending over and shaking whatever kind of backside you have. While to some this may seem like a new fad, this dance craze actually has SHAMIYAH KELLEY been around Entertainment for quite Writer some time. University students may not realize that the roots of twerking run close to home. While the origin of twerking is not verified, it’s the general consensus that twerking began in the early ’90s in New Orleans by way of the bounce music scene. Since then, twerking has become a fixture in the hip-hop community.

The Twerk Team is a group of women who got together in 2005 to perform twerk performances at various parties throughout Atlanta. They surged to popularity through YouTube videos going viral of their extreme twerking abilities. Say what you will about twerking, but these girls can move. That takes some serious talent — or at least physical ability. They are part of the movement that brought twerking into the limelight. The peak of the twerking phenomenon came with the Atlanta hip-hop wave at the turn of the century, when the Ying Yang Twins made some of the best twerk music of all time. To this day, “Get Low” can get any club crowd going. As time went on, more artists made twerk music, and twerking began to spread in popularity beyond the South. Which brings us to the present-day, widespread

fascination with the dance that has been around for about two decades. We can thank Miley Cyrus for the buzzword status of twerking. However, there are some negative implications of the newfound popularity. Here’s the issue: Miley is using twerking (and by extension, the black culture) as an accessory — something she can put on and take off. She can benefit from the fun or cool aspect but she doesn’t have to deal with negative aspects like racial profiling and other things that plague the black community. All the attention Miley has drawn to the act of twerking that was once limited to a certain subculture has led to the idea that the word “twerk,” which previously was not implicitly obscene, is suddenly explicit. Some people may think the act of twerking is obscene or over-sexualized, but the actual word is not obscene.

In the “We Can’t Stop” video, the word “twerk” is spelled out with alphabet soup, but many airings have censored the shot. Aside from the negative attention, twerking is all in good fun. Sometimes people can take things a little too seriously and read too far into it. The twerking phenomenon may be a hot topic right now, but it’s always good to know the origins of the trend. Log onto to check out a twerk song playlist to hear some throwback twerk songs and a few new ones too. Shamiyah Kelley is a 20-year-old communication studies senior from Irmo, S.C.

Spotify, other music services can be beneficial While most college students would probably disagree, I miss the days of radio and burned CDs. Actually, I still live in them — I just wish everyone else did, too. Not to hate on my iPod — it’s incredibly useful. The real enemy is all these music apps like PanSARAH NICKEL dora and SpoEntertainment tify. Oh, and the Writer true leader of the mob — satellite radio. I still haven’t entered the world of Pandora, but I recently downloaded Spotify. What am I supposed to do with this? Should I just sit around “listening to music?” That phrase reminds me of a fifth-grade ice breaker question. “What are your hobbies, Sarah?” “Oh, I like playing with my dog, reading books, listening to music.” I’m in college. I’m busy. At first I thought, if people legitimately have time to sit down and spend a significant portion of their day simply listening to music on their laptop, I am doing something wrong. I have obviously failed at

college life. The longest time of music listening I do is on my drive to school — well, technically it would be in a bar, but that doesn’t count right now. Sometimes I even skip the tunes for a radio talk show like Kidd Kraddick. Gasp. Maybe I’m just a little behind on the time. It’s so easy to just press “CD” and listen to my all-time favorite jams all mixed up in the order that I like them. The disc has been in the player since the day I got the car. Don’t worry, I know Eminem will rock out as soon as Jessica Andrews is finished belting “Summer Girl.” And in true burned CD style, of course I didn’t burn it myself; my best friend did. The time has come, though, to get with the program. The more you put off making the change, the more difficult it will become. Ultimately, it’s for the sake of your own happiness.

Radio will never stop broadcasting, and that super fantastic black CD case can keep its home in your car console.

Beckham emerging as elite return specialist for Tigers Tyler Nunez Sports Writer

The thought of LSU return specialists conjures memories of former Tigers like Billy Cannon, Kevin Faulk, Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson. Junior wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is on his way to adding his name to this list. “It’s an honor to be even mentioned in the names of Tyrann and Pat,” Beckham said. “Those are the kind of guys that I looked up to as far as the return game.” Beckham has shown a vast improvement from 2012 when he ran back just five kickoffs and gained a less-than-stellar 9.1 yards per punt return. In two games, he has returned three punts for 59 yards (19.7 yards per return), five kickoffs for 157 yards (31.4 yards per return) and a short field goal attempt 100 yards for a touchdown. These returns account for more than half of Beckham’s NCAAleading 603 all-purpose yards. It’s a tall order, but if he continues to run kicks back this effectively, he will cement his legacy as one of LSU’s greatest returners. “One player in special teams can change the game,” said junior wide receiver Jarvis Landry. “I think with [Beckham’s] ability and the times he touches the ball, besides on offense, it gives us a great opportunity to put points on the board, and, if not, get in scoring position.” Miles said Beckham has all the characteristics of a great

from Victoria, British Columbia, planned to attend college far from home, she focused on the programs that would appreciate her playing skills. “I don’t really think either of us can play or would like to play kick-and-chase or on-ball, direct soccer,” Fletcher said. “I couldn’t be effective because I wouldn’t get the ball. That was one of the main things I was looking for in a school: a team that would play the ball on the ground.” Lee and his staff also made the pendulum swing in LSU’s favor during their recruitment of Clarke, a native of Richmond, British Columbia. “When they came and visited to have dinner with my family, that’s when I got to know them,” Clarke said. “I just got a really good feeling from them. And right away, they were talking to my family like they’d known them for years.” During their youth careers, Clarke and Fletcher starred on the Vancouver Whitecaps, a team so well formed the duo struggled to recall losing a game between the world cup and LSU’s 4-2 loss to BYU on Sept. 2. They nonchalantly reeled off the long list

playmaker, calling him “nifty” and “explosive,” and complimenting his attitude and approach to his return game. “He sees himself making great plays,” Miles said. “... He says, ‘You know what? If I just beat that guy, this might go all the way. ... He has that intangible that really some of the very best players around have.” The field goal return was such an anomoly, LSU and the NCAA have had trouble finding a way to record the stat — the program virtually every team in the nation uses has nowhere to place it. Beckham didn’t know what to say about the return, comparing it to something out of a video game. In fact, he had other plans in mind when he saw UAB line up for the 59-yard field goal attempt. “I was honestly hoping it was going just over the cross bar so I could jump up and block it,” he

said. “But it ended up working for the better.” After such a rare play, one would think Beckham has done it all. But there is one play that has evaded Tiger Stadium for more than 25 years. There has not been a single kickoff returned for a touchdown in Death Valley since Notre Dame’s Tim Brown brought one back on Nov. 22, 1986. A Tiger has not returned one at home since former wide receiver Eric Martin on Oct. 17, 1981. Beckham said he believes he had the opportunity to put an end to this near-32-year-old draught. It’s just a matter of taking advantage of them. “I say he does it Saturday,” Landry said with a grin. Contact Tyler Nunez at; Twitter: @NunezTDR

“I think it’s where God wanted me to come,” Otero said. Otero will begin her LSU career in the Coleman Vision Tennis Championships in Albuquerque on Sunday, a tournament she first played in when she was 15. It will be a homecoming for Otero, with plenty of pressure on the hometown girl. But Otero argues that pressure makes her play better. With plenty of expectations for the recent class of players entering the 2013-14 season, Otero believes when it comes down to competition, age and hype can be tossed in the net. “I don’t think it’s really dependent on freshman, sophomore or junior, senior.” Otero said. “I think it’s how bad you want it, how bad you’re going to fight to get whatever you’re trying to achieve.”

McDonald’s employees spark debate on minimum wage SHARE THE WEALTH JAY MEYERS Columnist The website launched this summer by McDonald’s to help its low-wage workers making an average of $8.25 an hour budget their personal finances raises an important economic question. Unfortunately, it turns out, that wasn’t the fast food giant’s objective. In a laughable attempt to illustrate how fast food workers should be able to live off their scant income, Mickey D’s actually highlighted exactly how difficult it is for someone earning close to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 to survive. Indeed, despite its rosy intentions, McDonald’s practically admits that its employees can’t live off the wages it pays. Let’s take a gander at the delusional sample “budget journal” provided on their site. While the sample budget not only starts by assuming employees are working two jobs — which comes out to more than 240 hours a month on minimum wage — it also gives grossly unreasonable estimates for employees’ costs. First off, the budget allots a mere $20 a month for health care. Does that sound like a ballpark figure? It shouldn’t. For an uninsured person to independently buy health care in Louisiana, he or she must dole out an average of $206 a month, according to the Kaiser Foundation. Secondly, it doesn’t include any budgeted money for childcare, groceries, clothing or gas for the worker’s car.

The groceries expense omission is beyond ridiculous. According to a 2012 Gallup poll, Americans reported spending an average of $151 on food per week. The missing gas expense is equally as negligent. In 2012, the average American family spent nearly $250 per month on gasoline, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. As you can see, basically every element of McDonald’s budget is unrealistic. Given how clearly McDonald’s demonstrates the impossibility of living a low-wage life, it begs one simple question: Would raising the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to President Obama’s proposal of $9 per hour be good economic policy for University students? As a student of economics, this is an extremely difficult question to answer. Why? Well, what any economics textbook or professor will tell you is that policymakers should always be careful in attempting to regulate market outcomes. This is, for the most part, absolutely valid. Whether it’s tariffs, taxes or rent control, nearly every textbook will spell out the negative, unplanned consequences of the government getting in the way of our free market. And I’d wager that even the liberal ghost of Franklin Roosevelt would agree that setting a minimum wage of, say, $25 an hour would create some significant problems. But that’s not what we’re talking about here. There is strong evidence to suggest a modest $1.75 bump, to $9, in the minimum wage would interviewed got so lucky to only wait 20 to 45 minutes. I got in line at 4:30 for 6:00 pm kick off. The line was backed well past the weight room and pool. The Troopers were trying to funnel the mass of students into one single file theme park snake line at the gate entrance, which caused massive congestion. Within 30 feet of the “snake line” people were so packed I felt in danger of being trampled. At one point the Troopers refused to let anyone in the snake line until the crowd backed up. Unable to back up, and in angry defiance of the Trooper, the crowd surged

Christina Condori pickets with thousands of other protesters outside of a McDonald’s restaurant Aug. 29 in Memphis, Tenn.

have positive effects for students and workers alike. First of all, the purchasing power of the minimum wage has been substantially reduced for the past few decades, as a result of a perpetually increasing price level. To put this in perspective, a minimum wage worker in the 1960s could purchase a larger basket of goods with his or her income than a low-wage worker today, according to the Department of Labor. At the same time, worker productivity has doubled, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Isn’t it time for workers to enjoy the fruits of their labor? Now, the counterargument is pretty obvious: Wouldn’t an increase in the minimum wage be a major anti-jobs policy?

While this is the subject of ongoing research, the overwhelming answer in the minimum wage report conducted by the nonpartisan Center for Economic and Policy Research indicates little, if any, effect of wage increases on employment. The primary theme in the CEPR’s explanation is that the labor market doesn’t react to government involvement like it does in the markets for agricultural products or apartments where the “rent is too damn high.” Instead, the answer inherently lies in the fact that we’re people, and the human bond involved in hiring and firing tends to spark an empathy factor, which makes this topic inherently more complex than studying commodities markets. What this means — and what

the evidence points to — is that the rise in the wages of industrious but low-paid Americans is equivalent to a rise in income. And when income levels rise, so do spending and saving levels, which means a more robust economy. To McDonald’s credit, I think they — inadvertently, of course — figured out a creative way to supersize our ailing economy.

We need to learn to recognize and address racism THE BOX DOES NOT EXIST Jana King Columnist A black male is criminalized post-mortem. The U.N. calls out America’s racial bias. Why should you care? A 17-year-old boy was walking on a public sidewalk when a 28-year-old man ignored instructions from a 911 operator, after calling to report suspicious behavior. A gun was pulled, and the 17-year-old was shot in the head. In that context, a guilty verdict is easy. However, the 17-year-old was black, and the 28- year-old was white. That’s where we have a problem. To get an older, wiser opinion on the issue, I went to assistant professor of communication studies Bryan McCann. His academic and philanthropic pursuits address communication and critical cultural studies. This includes a particular interest in matters of race, gender and class in mass incarcerations. He said that he saw many of those matters in the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“I wasn’t shocked by the verdict because it came down to Zimmerman’s claim that he was defending himself.” McCann said. “Sadly, that was asking if Trayvon Martin seemed dangerous.” So how did we determine if Martin seemed to be dangerous? We searched for our idea of danger in his image. There are two sides to the media’s image of Trayvon Martin. On one, he was a young, dark-skinned boy with a bright future. On the other side, he was a hooded, black youth who had a history of violence. “I was uncomfortable with how even the Martin advocates portrayed him. It seemed like he could only be an angelic little boy or a thug,” McCann said. These contradictory views of Martin should be an obvious hint at racism in the judicial system. But legally, racial bias is hard to prove. “We’re in a system that says racial bias is only proven by white hoods and swastikas,” McCann said. My conversation with McCann ran on with trial specifics, Stand Your Ground laws and a request from the United Nations

to review racial bias policy. But as we were discussing things, I recognized a familiar disconnected feeling — as if we were talking about something that happened on a television show, in a fictional universe. My main question quickly became why I, an LSU student, should care. “Well, that’s a good question,” McCann started. “It seems big, and these two were in Florida. But it is worth noting that this case wouldn’t have even gone to trial if there hadn’t been pressure from people across the country.” He continued with, “It might not be a matter of what you can do for the Trayvon Martin case specifically, but how we can find Trayvon on our campus.” The concept of racist expression is easier to accept in the seemingly fictional world of the American judicial system, especially when the scene is set in Florida. But here in Louisiana and at LSU, we aren’t immune to racist expression. Last October, a text message was sent out over the LSU Emergency text system, which described the suspect of an armed bank robbery as “Black male wearing black hooded sweatshirt,

blue jeans.” The student sitting in front of me got it as well, and he commented, “Good thing I wore white clothes today.” He was wearing a cardigan, a button-down shirt, and khaki pants. The assumption was that with those clothes he wouldn’t be thought to be dangerous — that with a certain appearance, he would avoid racial profiling. So, is it innocent until proven guilty, or black until proven innocent? Racist ideals like this are everywhere. There aren’t white hoods or nooses on our campus,

but that doesn’t mean it’s over. Luckily, racism can be defeated. Today, racism is quiet. We just need to learn how to recognize it and address it. Jana King is a 19-year-old women’s and gender studies sophomore from Ponchatoula, La.

‘Ghetto Tracker’ on your iPhone: an app or an insult? THE CHARD TRUTH Justin Blanchard Columnist The neighborhood just north of campus is the ghetto. Well, at least according to the newly released app “Ghetto Tracker.” Don’t be offended though, because the name was recently changed to “Good Part of Town.” That’s right. There is an app that will point out safe, average, below-average and unsafe neighborhoods so you, the wealthy person with an iPhone, don’t have to travel in those areas. Rejoice! Venturing out of your gated community’s walls won’t be such a stressful and dangerous journey anymore! David Foster, the creator of the app, stated during a Skype interview that this is the intended purpose of the app. His wife is a pharmaceutical rep and he reported that he doesn’t want her to end up in a bad neighborhood or what could be called the “ghetto.” This man is a jerk. Only after receiving tons of negative criticism did he think to change the derogatory name of the app. The guy didn’t even feel remorseful for the pejorative title. Even worse, he was unaware that

the service is classist. “Good Part of Town” strengthens existing social boundaries. Many low-income communities are linked to crimes, and the app marks locations as “unsafe” or “safe” based on the crime rates and user votes. So in turn, most low-income communities are deemed unsafe by people who have never lived there and are trying to avoid the areas altogether. People are generalizing neighborhoods and are dismissing them as the shadow land that they must never venture into. Despite the premeditated assumptions concocted by users of “Good Part of Town,” a neighborhood is not defined by its crime rate. Who knows? Maybe that neighborhood is actually peaceful and the people are genuinely friendly and there unfortunately happens to be gang disputes. Avoiding an area because of an app on your smartphone is ridiculous. It could prevent you from learning about a new place. Perhaps there is a delicious restaurant in one of the neighborhoods deemed unsafe, and you’ll never know because some arrogant wealthy person chose to mark the area as unsafe. In fact, this happened to me. Not listening to the warnings

RICHARD REDMANN / The Daily Reveille

A newly released iPhone app has listed the Northgate of LSU among other areas of Baton Rouge as unsafe.

given to me by fellow students and “Good Part of Town,” I went down Highland Road past Wienerschnitzel. I crossed into the shadow land and guess what? There was light! I found a restaurant called BB&PF that serves delicious vegan-friendly food. I would have never been able to satisfy my craving for bean burgers, plantain fries and fufu had I listened to “Good Part of Town.”

When visiting, I never once felt endangered or unsafe even though the restaurant is in an area that “Good Part of Town” marks as unsafe. There are so many gems dispersed throughout the city that are located in unsafe areas on “Good Part of Town.” It would be a shame if these places remained hidden because of some pretentious, affluent man’s idea of what areas are safe

and unsafe. Delete the app if you have it. Go find out what each neighborhood has to offer for yourself. Justin Blanchard is a 19-year-old international studies sophomore from Harahan, La.

you the same,’” Miles said. “I think they understand the distraction, and I think they’re ready to get going.” The article claimed former players had school work completed for them, and were regularly provided answers before exams. Though Miles apparently preached an “academics first” policy, the piece quotes several players who felt differently. “You heard his words, but you saw what [Miles] was doing,” Doug Bond, a Cowboys offensive lineman for three seasons under Miles, told SI. “The thought process was that you’re going to school just so you can play football.” SI’s article said several players were discouraged from declaring for certain majors by the program, ensuring that football players would remain eligible. Miles also addressed part two of SI’s series during Wednesday morning’s Southeastern Conference teleconference. “I can tell you that people that were commenting on the state of the program weren’t there long enough to figure it out,” Miles said. “They heard me tell them attend class, do the right things and heard me routinely.” Miles said he wanted to withhold further comment to get his team ready for its weekend matchup against Kent State. At his evening press conference, he said he never expected the story to garner this much attention when SI first contacted him. “I had no idea that this would be anything like this,” Miles said.

page 15 SAUDI CLUB, from page 1

“Saudi is the center of Islam because of Mecca and Medina,” Otibi said. “We want to introduce our culture to other people.” Student reaction to the roses was positive. Before the fair was over at 1 p.m., the had completely run out of roses to give away. Dozens of students walked around the fair with a rose clutched in one hand and a card in the other, explaining the rose was to commemorate the innocent lives lost in the attacks. Holly Lions, computer science sophomore, said she was impressed with the efforts of the club and that it goes a long way with showing that differences between cultures are not always bad. “I went up and asked them why they were giving out flowers, and they said it was to show sorrow for those that lost their lives,” Lions said. “It is a way of showing that there is a lot of good in the world.”

Otibi was also pleased at the reception the roses received from students, and he said he hopes the gesture can help make a positive impact on the perception of Saudi and Muslim students on campus. Promoting good will between students of all cultures is a main goal of the Saudi Club, Otibi said. While their Student Involvement Fair initiative focused on the Sept. 11 anniversary, Otibi said the goal will be prioritized year-round also. “We want to show the people that we want peace to them and the world” Otibi said, “We don’t want innocent people to die from conflicts.” The Saudi Club is planning other events to be held later this semester, which will be publicized on the club’s Facebook page.
