TRANSFORMING THE TRASH Animal advocates Students upcycle materials to create sustainable furniture
Alexis Rebennack News Writer
Newspaper furniture, bike tire hammocks and liquor bottle lights are just a few of the things University students will see today at the University Recreation Center from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. The University architecture students in the elective course titled [UP]cycling>[down]cycling had four hours Tuesday night to assemble sustainable furniture using only newspaper, water bottles, bike tires, glass bottles and washing machines to be presented in an exhibit today as one of their ﬁnal projects for the semester. On one of the ﬁrst days of class, the students researched what materials could be used for upcycling and how to make furniture using only materials intrinsic to the product – no glue, tape, screws or other binding materials are allowed. “The second thing we had to do after choosing materials was go to the UREC and interview people to see what we as architecture students could do to provide for them, and really they said seating by the classrooms,” said fourth year architecture student Teresa Williams.

While there are many animal rescue organizations in the greater Baton Rouge area, there are not many animal advocacy groups speciﬁcally targeting fallouts of disaster situations, until now. The University’s Stephenson Disaster Management Institute recently formed the Animals in Disaster Advisory Group, which will work to preserve animal safety in situations like hurricanes, ﬂoods, tornadoes and other disasters. After taking note of the University Agricultural Center’s estimate of more than $75 million in livestock and forage economic losses in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the SDMI decided to take action. “We’re focusing on response to animals in disaster situations,” said Lauren Bourg, SDMI manager of external relations. The group is a combined ANIMAL ADVOCACY, see page 4
Online study room reservation to launch in spring semester System will mimic testing center’s Camille Stelly Contributing Writer
THE DAILY REVEILLE ARCHIVES
Student Government is teaming with Middleton Library and Information Technology Services to launch a system allowing students to reserve study rooms online.
As early as spring 2014, Middleton Library’s study room reservation process will become streamlined and move online much like the Ofﬁce of Evaluation and Assessment’s testing signup. Student Government presented the idea to Middleton Library at the beginning of the semester, but the plan to implement the new system became deﬁnite only recently,
said SG Vice President Taylor Parks. “Moving the study reservation process online won’t have any effect on the student workers at the circulation desks, they have other responsibilities,” Parks said. “This will eliminate the middleman.” But students will still be able to reserve a study room in-person through the circulation desks if necessary. Middleton Library collaborated with Information Technology Services to develop a system. ITS launched a demo for testing purposes which will be used to model the actual version. As of now, the only thing
holding up launching the system is for Middleton Library to decide which data package will be used. Each package has a certain number of entries and each entry handles a certain number of reservations that can be made in a certain time frame. The costs of packages are measured by number of entries in each package, which can range from 20 entries to more than 100 entries. Package costs range from $899 to $1499 per year. Student Government would cover 20 percent of the costs. Pending Middleton Library’s STUDY ROOM, see page 4

INTERNATIONAL Pope shuns presidential escort for state visit, drives Ford Focus instead ROME (AP) — Pope Francis shunned a presidential guard escort for his ﬁrst state visit to the Italian president Thursday in yet another breach of protocol and security, even though some people have expressed concerns for his safety as he ramps up his reform of the Vatican. Francis’ simple blue Ford Focus and the small Vatican motorcade pulled up quietly to the Quirinale Palace without the blaring of sirens that typically accompanies politicians and foreign dignitaries cruising through central Rome. Five women charged under anti-gay law, sentence of five years in jail DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — A prosecutor in Senegal says ﬁve women have been charged under the country’s anti-gay law that imposes prison sentences of up to ﬁve years for homosexual acts. Mamadou Thiam conﬁrmed the charges late Wednesday, two days after the women were arrested during a birthday party at a restaurant in Dakar’s Yoff district. The women’s rights group Women’s Smile says the latest arrests highlight a hostile environment for lesbians, who it says are being targeted more frequently by police.

Chinese relief effort to the Phillipines outshined by U.S., furniture chain Ikea BEIJING (AP) — The outpouring of international aid to the Philippines makes China’s contribution for typhoon relief look like a trickle: Several countries and even Swedish furniture chain Ikea have done more than the world’s second-largest economy. That won’t help Beijing’s campaign to win over neighbors with its soft power. China has pledged less than $2 million in cash and materials, compared to $20 million provided by the United States.

Six tons of seized ivory tusks, carvings crushed in “blood ivory” stockpile
Baton Rouge bus driver accused of choking child, posted $5,000 bond
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — U.S. ofﬁcials on Thursday destroyed more than 6 tons of conﬁscated ivory tusks, carvings and jewelry — the bulk of the U.S. “blood ivory” stockpile — and urged other nations to follow suit to ﬁght a $10 billion global trade that slaughters tens of thousands of elephants each year. Thousands of ivory items accumulated over the past 25 years were piled into a large pyramidshaped mound, then dumped into a steel rock cru at the National Wildlife Property Repository just north of Denver. 911 call reveals wild cat sanctuary owner dragging a mauled employee
Newborn illnesses tied to parents not giving Vitamin K shots to babies
(AP) — A public school bus driver has been arrested following accusations that she choked a 7-yearold boy before arriving at Highland Elementary, an incident that was caught on video by surveillance cameras on the bus. East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies tell The Advocate 58-year-old Sandra Henderson was booked on Tuesday on counts of cruelty to juveniles. She was released after posting a $5,000 bond. Domoine Rutledge, general counsel for the school system, said Henderson has not been ﬁred, but was placed on paid administrative leave following the incident.
ATLANTA (AP) — Health ofﬁcials are reporting four Tennessee cases of a rare infant illness that have been linked to parents refusing a routine shot for newborns. The four Nashville-area infants suffered brain or stomach bleeding earlier this year. Their parents had declined vitamin K shots, which have routinely been given to newborns since 1961. The shots improve blood clotting and prevent internal bleeding. All four children were treated with vitamin K and survived.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man and his 7-month-old son were fatally shot in an apparent ambush near a New Orleans bridge spanning the Mississippi River, and authorities are offering a $15,000 reward for tips leading to whoever shot them. Gang activity may be behind the shooting of DeShawn Butler, 25, and his son, DeShawn Kinard, Police Chief Ronal Serpas said Thursday.
PORTLAND (AP) — A chilling recording of a 911 call captures the owner of an Oregon wild cat sanctuary dragging an employee who had been mauled to death from a cougar enclosure and screaming at two of the animals roaming inside to get away from the scene of the killing. The audio details how Michael Tuller returned to WildCat Haven on Saturday night to discover 36-year-old Renee Radziwon-Chapman bloodied and lying on her back in the fenced-in enclosure.

BATON ROUGE COMMUNITY
University participates in entrepreneurship events Jonathan Olivier Contributing Writer
Next week marks the third year Baton Rouge entrepreneurs are participating in Global Entrepreneurship Week with an array of events compiled to create Baton Rouge Entrepreneurship Week from Nov. 17 to Nov. 23. The University, as well as several organizations like the Baton Rouge Area Chamber, are hosting events designed to “cultivate and recognize entrepreneurship and innovation” in the region, according to Lauren Hatcher, BRAC director of marketing operations. “An event like BREW offers
entrepreneurs a common place and time to share ideas to gain insights and education to help them get their startups moving,” Hatcher said. “I think the region is making a lot of progress and becoming a strong place for entrepreneurs to start businesses.” The University’s Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute is hosting the Executive Education’s Breakfast to Business at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, where guest speaker John Georges, CEO of Georges Enterprises, will address entrepreneurs and SEI fellows in the Business Education Complex. SEI is also hosting the Second Annual LSU Elevator Pitch
Competition and Entrepreneur Panel Discussion in conjunction with the University Student Incubator, starting at 5 p.m. in the Business Education Complex Auditorium. Both events are free to the public. The pitch competition involves students having 90 seconds to pitch business ideas, which will be judged by entrepreneurs, according to SEI Director of Executive Education Robin Kistler. The panel discussion will feature a group of entrepreneurs discussing general ideas behind entrepreneurship or challenges they have faced and how they moved past that, Kistler said. Other Baton Rouge area
organizations and businesses will be hosting events throughout the week, such as SeNSE, which will be hosting the High-Stakes Pitch Night on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center. Admission is $20, and those interested can register at sensehighstakespitchnight.eventbrite.com or purchase tickets at the door. The event will feature ﬁve “sharks,” or panel of entrepreneurs, who will judge local startups and have the option to contribute money to invest in their favorite company. The design is similar to ABC’s “Shark Tank,” and according to SeNSE Programming Chair Christi Domingue-Rangel, more
than $400,000 were given to startups by sharks at last year’s event. The week also gives the opportunity for BRAC to release its 2014 Economic Outlook on Thursday at City Club in Baton Rouge at 7:30 a.m. as a part of the regional stakeholder’s breakfast, which includes data analysis, forecast and insights on the local nine-parish economy for the upcoming year, Hatcher said. The outlook references information from different data sets and a survey ﬁlled out by local businesses, she said. Contact Jonathan Olivier at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students skeptical of online dating Research outlines dating site stats Elizabeth Thomas Contributing Writer
Although a recent study conducted by Pew Research Center’s Internet Project showed that online dating had become more reliable in recent years, University students aren’t as quick to accept these sites and apps as all they’re cracked up to be. This study shows 11 percent of American adults have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps, and 38 percent of those adults are single and looking for a partner. It also shows that online dating is most common among Americans in their mid-20’s through mid-40’s. “Not everyone is social enough to meet someone in the real world, so I think online dating gives them that outlet to meet someone,” said political science junior Jordan Lizana. However, even though accepting opinions of online dating have increased, many people still have negative experiences with this process. The study shows that 54 percent of online daters felt that they have been “catﬁsh’ed,” or that someone else has seriously misrepresented themselves in their proﬁle. Keigan Duckett, kinesiology junior, has had a negative experience with a mobile dating app called Tinder. This app connects to your Facebook account and allows you to view a proﬁle of friends of friends within your area and people who share common interests with you. “The guys on there are just creepy,” Duckett said. “Even though it is supposed to connect you with people who go to LSU, I have run across a couple instances where they did not and never did, and they were just lying to connect with college girls.” Similarly, not everyone is particularly fond of online dating services. “I think online dating at LSU

Disease puts La. plentiful citrus crop at risk Olivia McClure Contributing Writer
This season’s citrus crop is bountiful in Louisiana thanks to a lack of hurricanes — but it could be threatened by disease. LSU AgCenter extension agent in Plaquemines Parish Alan Vaughn said last year’s crop suffered heavily from wind damage from Hurricane Isaac. There have been no storms this year, so the citrus crop has seen improvement. But there is concern about citrus canker disease, which was found in July in City Park in New Orleans and has spread to Jefferson and Plaquemines parishes. Canker disease is windborne and is not curable once it infects a citrus tree. The disease, which causes lesions on leaves and fruit, makes trees drop their fruit too early. Meanwhile in Florida – a major citrus producing state – the crop is being wiped out by greening citrus disease, said Vaughn. The bug that spreads the disease has been found in Louisiana, but the disease
itself has not been located. So far, it is “too exotic a problem to worry about,” he said. Satsumas, the most popular citrus fruit for Louisiana growers as well as consumers because they are seedless and easy to peel, are already on the market. Navel oranges will be available in the next couple of weeks, Vaughn said. Vaughn said citrus trees are the most common backyard crop. Seventeen varieties of citrus are grown in Louisiana, he said. Even if citrus fruit has green skin, that does not necessarily mean it is not sweet. Vaughn said slightly green skin on ripe fruit is caused by early warm weather during the growing season. Citrus fruit skin can even go back to being green after turning orange if the weather is warm. According to the AgCenter’s 2012 “Louisiana Summary: Agriculture and Natural Resources,” about 600 acres of citrus trees were grown last year, the majority of which was satsumas. About 164,000 bushels of citrus were produced in 2012 and the gross

Citrus canker disease was discovered last year in New Orleans. This windborne disease threatens Louisiana’s bountiful citrus crops grown this season.
farm value for all citrus was $5.2 million dollars. “Louisiana Summary” also points out that most of Louisiana’s citrus fruit is sold at roadside stands and farmers markets. There are nearly 400 citrus growers in the state located in 18
parishes, all below I-10. Plaquemines Parish is the leading citrus producer in Louisiana. Contact Olivia McClure at firstname.lastname@example.org
Endowments, gifts to University increase Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez Staff Writer
Following a national trend of increasing returns on endowments, the LSU Foundation experienced about an 11 percent bump in performance on endowments, or gifts, that have been invested for the 2012-2013 ﬁscal year. When individuals give to the private foundation, their money can be spent in different ways depending on donors’ decisions. Not all gifts to the Foundation are invested, making those that are invested subject to shifts in the market. If individuals give endowments, the money is invested and
only part of that money, the return of the investments, can be spent, said Sara Crow, director of communications and donor relations of the LSU Foundation. Crow said endowments work similarly to savings or retirement accounts and the University receives a perpetual stream of funding. The Chronicle of Higher Education conducted a national study and found that investment returns for University endowments also improved by 11.7 percent. This national trend of increases in returns on philanthropic investments can be attributed to market growth. The University’s investment
returns are typically similar to other SEC peers and national trends, Crow said. She added that similar to last year’s trend, the University experienced a negative return rate on endowments and now the Foundation is seeing growth. A positive market and an increase in endowments help the University because the invested funds provide long-term money. For example, several scholarships are funded through endowments and the positive growth gives the University a sense of security given a trend of reduced state appropriations. The more endowment gifts the University receives, the better the University will be able to offset the
impact of state cuts, Crow said. This year’s growth is an encouraging sign for the foundation, Crow said, as the Foundation is focusing on donors giving gifts through endowments. “It helps us grow that perpetual stream of funding,” said Crow. Last ﬁscal year, out of the $30 million in gifts the Foundation received, $6 million were endowment funds. Crow said this is only 20 percent of gifts that can be invested and the Foundation would like to see those numbers increase. Contact Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez at email@example.com

effort of the SDMI and Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry. Other state contributors include the Louisiana State Animal Response Team, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, Infectious Epidemiology Section and the University School of Veterinary Medicine. One of the organization’s goals is to connect these organizations with those outside of the state. Such groups include the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the United States Department of Agriculture. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture Emergency Programs Division is also represented. “Animal care associated with disaster events and planning is an area of tremendous and growing importance to the disaster management community,” said executive director of SDMI Joseph Booth in a news release. “This advisory group is composed of some of the leading experts in the nation and will be instrumental in shaping the future of disaster management.” The University has the ability to provide relief and resources to animals that civilians and other organizations may not have immediate access to. When the strong winds for Tropical Storm Lee caused the Bastrop County Complex Wildﬁre in 2011, the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine triaged more than 250 animals. LSU also stepped up in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, housing more than 1,200 pets. Thousands more homeless animals were placed in makeshift shelters around the state. Bourg said one of the main reasons people elect not to immediately evacuate when facing a disaster situation is not wanting to leave their animals or livestock, but saving animal lives can help save human lives. “If we can help the animals, we can help get everyone out of harm’s way,” Bourg said.

package choice, there are a number of accounts SG can utilize to fund this initiative. For smaller packages, SG may dip into its programming account. If Middleton Library chooses a larger package, SG will fund the initiative through the executive initiative account or the president and vice president contingency funds, Parks said. There is no word on whether the online reservation tool will be launched through Middleton Library’s website or a new domain will be created similar to the domain for scheduling tests. When Middleton Library selects a software and ITS gets the service running, it will be implemented immediately, Parks said.

The No. 14 LSU women’s basketball team lost control late in an 88-67 loss to No. 5 Louisville on Thursday night, ending its run in the preseason WNIT semifinals. The Lady Tigers (2-1) were able to keep their deficit to within six points midway through the second half, but they quickly found themselves out of contention as Louisville ran away with the game by scoring 20 unanswered points in less than five minutes. “The game is a 40-minute game and we only played about 30,” said LSU head coach Nikki Caldwell in a news release. “We can’t take possessions off because against a team like Louisville, they will tear you apart.” Louisville senior forward Asia Taylor had a career night, posting game-highs with 23 points, 10 rebounds, three assists

The 2013 LSU football campaign could bring back a bevy of memories a few years down the line. Overshadowed by an emotional multiple-loss season will forever be one of the more prolific offenses LSU fans have ever seen. The squad’s 460.4 total yards
per game are the most in the Les Miles era with the closest production coming in 2007 (439.4 ypg). Senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been the catalyst, but the three most dynamic weapons on the LSU offense are the ones who could be making the biggest splash if they jump into the pool of

The LSU basketball team is only three days removed from its season-opening, two-point loss at Massachusetts, but the vibe around the squad suggests something different.

The Tigers also harped on decreasing their number of fouls, as they were whistled 29 times against the Minutemen. While players acknowledged their disappointment with Tuesday’s

on Saturdays, and that’s been our recipe for success this season.” LSU has three representatives in the top 10 SEC players in yards from scrimmage this season. In total, the triumvirate combine for 327.6 yards per contest for the Tigers, accounting for 71.2 percent of the total offensive production. Fifty-nine percent of the squad’s production has been via the passing game this season — Beckham and Landry are accountable for 74 percent of those yards. Hill alone has added 52 percent of the Tigers’
rushing attack. The three of them, combined with the work of Mettenberger, have been the pulse for a squad that has seen a drop-off in defensive effectiveness in 2013. “We’ve seen so many dynamic things happen this season,” said junior center Elliott Porter. “It makes you really confident. It makes you confident when you block, and it makes you feel good. It makes you feel dominant and that you can score from anywhere.” On-field production occurs largely when team chemistry is positive, to keep the mood light

People should wait to start celebrating Christmas THE UNRIDDLER Christine Guttery Columnist Christmas time is indeed the most wonderful time of the year, in my opinion. For months now I’ve been wondering with Faith Hill, “Where are you, Christmas? Why can’t I find you?” But it isn’t Christmas time yet. I don’t mean to be a Grinch, but please, one holiday at a time. We’ve finally reached November and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go. Take a look in the mall, the coffee shop and the bookstore. They’re already decking the halls with boughs of plastic holly, and do you hear what I hear? Yep, 96.1 The River is playing Christmas music in Barnes and Noble on campus. Early holiday merchandising drives me crazy. I won’t overgeneralize — there may be a few business owners who, like kids who can’t wait until Christmas to open presents, can’t wait to decorate and play Christmas music because of their impatient enthusiasm. What makes me mad is that I know for many businesses, it’s all

When I was young we joked that all a Central American country needed to run an economy was a printing press. Now the Fed makes this their economic policy.

Well, how can kids be healthy when they: need to think about where to get money in order to apply to some college, then they need to study extremely hard as colleges’ life is quite tough with lots of written assignments (Law essays home assignment for example) and research projects which are being shut down from time to time in the middle of work. And at last, students need to find out a way of how to pay off their student loans when they graduate…It is difficult to stay healthy.” -DannyG

cousin and asking my dad to tell me stories. The sights, smells and sounds of Christmas take us back to our Christmas memories. I want those things to always remind me of Christmas, not November. They don’t mean as much when we experience them outside of Christmas time. On a less sentimental note, there are only so many Christmas songs. Radio stations basically play the same few tunes and add a new version to the mix every so often. At the rate they are going, they will wear them all out before December. I can only listen to “The Twelve Days of Christmas” so many times. What sane person gives his or her lover 23 various types of birds, not to mention eleven pipers piping, anyway? I have a hard time enjoying “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” because I zone out and start pondering the age-old question: what is figgy pudding? It must be pretty amazing if the carolers won’t go until they get some. How did “Jingle Bells” become so popular? I’m convinced it was written solely for a level one, lesson one piano book. According to a recent
Cricket Wireless national survey, 55 percent of Americans find it unacceptable to play Christmas music before Thanksgiving. I wholeheartedly agree. Let’s give the turkey his day. Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and give thanks for their many blessings. With Christmas coming earlier and earlier, Thanksgiving starts to get lost in the shuffle. For Christmas lovers, waiting is hard. I’m very much looking forward to watching “White Christmas” — also known as the best holiday movie ever made — and I can almost hear Michael Buble’s angelic, smoothas-butter voice crooning “Silent Night.” But not yet. The Christmas season truly begins in just a couple more weeks. I must resist until then.
“After some thoughtful opinions last week, I suppose it just couldn’t last could it? Mr. McGehee, would you like some substance with those strawmen? I find it tremendously sardoinc that a 20 year old kid, who is or could be on his parents insurance for at least another half-decade thanks to ACA, is so opposed to it that he wastes our time with 3/4 of an opinion condemning a website not working (strawman), in order to make the 1/4 of the rest of his post which actually addresses real issues with ACA. Let us be clear; ACA is not perfect. Let us also be clear; the developed world has no place for individuals so misanthropic they deny the poor health coverage simply for being poor. In a country where medical costs are bloated beyond compare by wanton inflation wars between insurance and medical corporations, a single surgery can force even a middle class family
into bankruptcy. ACA isn’t the answer, but it’s a start. And all things considered it is a tremendously good start. I for one am very satisfied with the savings I’ve experienced personally with my new plan (you can of course sign up by phone... you know, that thing in your pocket which apparently doesn’t get much use. Which of course renders your website strawman even more embarrassingly fatuous). Next time try not to call the kettle black, pot.” -Nathan

Long-distance relationships can work in college THE BOX DOES NOT EXIST JANA KING Columnist Coming to college has given me new insights and changed a vast majority of my opinions, including my personal stance on relationships — speciﬁcally long-distance relationships. When I graduated high school in May 2012, I left my hometown with no intention of looking back, and I was excited to meet and date new people. The college idea of longdistance relationships seems to be negative. I’ve heard people doubt they could work, sure that cheating was inevitable, and say that they are doomed from the start. The pressure of a serious relationship is immense already, there is no need to add the stress of a long distance relationship. I agreed with those ideas, until I found myself in the middle of a long-distance relationship. Now my opinion has morphed as I’ve realized that there are several components of a healthy long distance relationship that can make it manageable. 1. Honesty is the best policy. The hardest thing to come to

Distance can be hard on college relationships, but students can make them work with honesty, communication and productivity.
terms with is that it will be hard. There is no denying that you will be surrounded by couples who see each other frequently. Sometimes it makes me want to vomit when I see two people holding hands because the person I want to hold hands with isn’t here. But there is something really great about looking forward to seeing someone that you care about. Honesty also comes into play with trust. A major factor in long distance relationships is being
able to trust that the other person will behave appropriately and not take your trust for granted. It is also important to be honest with each other about whether a long distance relationship is working. I frequently check in with myself and my signiﬁcant other to make sure that we are managing the hardship of distance both together and individually. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you cannot handle a long distance relationship, and
at the end of the day it’s only going to hurt the person you care about if you stay with them out of guilt. 2. Communication, communication, communication. This has been the biggest struggle so far. In college things change hour to hour, and we’re busy. Luckily, we live in a burst of communication technology. But they are also a hindrance. Constant communication doesn’t always mean healthy communication. What you had for lunch, you were late for class — these issues aren’t as important as conﬁding in each other about problems with friends, parents or struggles at school. And at the end of the day, you want your signiﬁcant other to know the real you, struggles and all. Facebook and texting all day are great, but nothing comes closer to actually being together than a phone call or Skype video chat. As I mentioned before, honest communication is also important. If something about your relationship is upsetting you, communicate it. 3. Be productive in the time that you spend together. When you ﬁnally get to see each other, it is natural to want to spend all of your time alone. But being social as a pair is equally important in terms of growth
and compatibility. While I was nervous about introducing someone from my past to my current friend group, I was relieved to ﬁnd that the two mixed very well. Even more so, I am elated to ﬁnd that I am growing as an individual as I progress through the ﬁrst serious relationship I’ve had. Over the last ﬁve months I have seen myself mature along with another person, and it has differed from any other relationship I have had. It has also been some of the happiest months I’ve had in college. All relationships are difﬁcult, long distance relationships just have their own set of struggles.

Healthcare legislation shows government incompetence NEUTRAL GROUND ELI A. HADDOW Columnist It appears that sorry was not good enough. After defending “landmark” healthcare legislation known as the Affordable Care Act, and even pandering to Americans via an apology last week, President Barack Obama relented on Thursday and delayed a key provision of the law. This marks the ﬁrst time he has actually compromised in the years long battle that has involved a congressional clash, Supreme Court ﬁght and a government shutdown. You may be aware of the recent controversy. The online exchange, meant to sign up the American populous to new healthcare plans, functioned as well as myLSU’s schedule request page at 5 p.m. on a Monday night. And the president, now infamously, apologized last week for reneging on a promise that Americans could keep health plans that they liked. But on Thursday, Obama actually stepped back and delayed the mandatory shift an entire year. This mea culpa is small beans considering
he promised Americans could keep them permanently, but it’s a step in the right direction. The law’s faults are obvious and well documented. Numbers released from the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday showed that a paltry 387 Louisianans registered for new insurance since the Affordable Care Act took effect. Chances are that more students attended ART 1001 on Wednesday. Only 106,000 total Americans have signed up for insurance through the new law. That’s about one thirtieth of one percent of the country’s population, while only 26,794 signed up over the beleaguered healthcare.gov website. In the latest episode in the long line of controversy that has surrounded the law, Obama’s cession marks a signiﬁcant point where the president has backed down and allowed dissidents to have some say. This shouldn’t be surprising considering shots have been taken from both parties over the ACA, but it comes from a president who has not been shy when addressing his own agenda and bashing those who oppose it. Up until Thursday, the only reconciliation he had for Americans was: “I am sorry.” Even though the extra year he has given Americans to change plans
JONATHAN BACHMAN / The Associated Press
Sen. Mary Landieu waves as she arrives at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport with President Barack Obama on Nov. 8.
hardly solves the problem, there is still hope that Congress will go further to slow down the trainwreck that has become the ACA. Senator Mary Landrieu put aside her allegiance to the president and offered a bill in the Senate that would allow people to keep their plans permanently, not just through 2014, as Obama said.
This sentiment is echoed in the House, where a Republican bill allowing people to keep their plans has gained multiple Democratic co-sponsors. But what we see over and over is a driven president having to overcome the reluctance of his own party to provide socialized medicine to the United States. This week all but
revived the debate on why this is happening in the ﬁrst place. We were assured that exchanges would be ready for the onslaught of customers on the ﬁrst day a month ago, yet only six people in the entire country were able to sign up on the ﬁrst day. As students who will one day — either now or years in the future — have to purchase health insurance, we should be concerned over the level of incompetence that has been shown in the execution of this law. And we should be shocked by the fact that it’s so bad that President Obama himself has come out and changed its implementation. He didn’t even wait for the Republican House of Representatives to vote on another delaying bill. He has yet to consider any legislation to delay the law. But now that he has come off of his high horse — maybe because he tried visiting his own website — we can look forward to some actual progress in making sure the law does not screw over the American people.

The Daily Reveille UPCYCLE, from page 1 Each of the four groups created its own seating: water bottle and newspaper loungers, washing machine chairs, cardboard tubes and glass bottle seating and lighting. Overall, the groups collected more than 200 water bottles and 800 glass bottles. “We did lots of stakeholder research, and the students spent a lot of time at the UREC observing people and doing lots of research trying to understand how the UREC works and the needs of UREC users,” said assistant professor Meredith Sattler. “A lot of people sat on ﬂoor in that hallway waiting for the classes to start so that’s where a lot of seating ideas came from.” Fifth year architecture student Carolina Rodriguez said the coolest thing about this project is the way it was designed. Her group created the lounge chairs using only water bottles and copies of The Daily Reveille and DIG Magazine. She said the group even tried to achieve a curvature, which is a design in the shape of the chair that makes it ﬁt the human body. Along with each piece of furniture displayed throughout the UREC, the students created signs informing people of the different ways recycling works and some alarming statistics about the lack of recycling in the Baton Rouge community. “The largest piece is composed of 291 water bottles, which corresponds to the number of bottles wasted everyday at the UREC,” said fourth year architecture student Tyler Detiveaux. The group members agreed that the more time they spent on the project, the better an understanding of each water bottle’s personality they gained: Ozarka is gentle; Nestle Pure Life is weak; and Dasani is stubborn, Detiveaux said.
page 11 Getting the necessary amount of newspaper for this project was no easy task, according to second year architecture graduate student Landon Pugh who said he spent more than 20 hours rolling newspaper last week alone. The group said they have been collecting water bottles since before this class even started, anticipating the need for them at some point during the semester. While one group was diligently working on creating newspaper and water bottle loungers, another was weaving a bike tire hammock. The hammock, which now has been demoted to a sculptural piece because of the UREC’s liability concerns, is created completely from deﬂated bike tire tubes woven together. The hammock is tied to the railing between one of the staircases near the UREC’s front desk. The students said they visited all of the local bike shops in order to get their materials. The sustainability saga continues with one group that created chairs out of washing machines salvaged from a nearby apartment complex. “Our project is based around washing machines and what we are calling ‘design for disassembly,’” said fourth year student Zachary Chatelain. “It’s basically looking at recycling and deconstruction of the components of machines and what it takes to recycle objects like this.” The students arranged a series of washing machines that show the disassembling process and highlight facts about recycling the disassembled parts. Another machine was upcycled to create a light
ﬁxture, and another was upcycled to create a chair. The ﬁnal group created a multi-purpose seating and lighting structure, said fourth year student Andrew Layman. The project creates a light ﬁltering screen with a foundation that forms seating. To create this structure, the group connected cardboard tubes to form walls and strategically placed glass liquor bottles throughout different sections of the tubing. Assistant professor Meredith Sattler said the class picked the UREC as the on-campus venue for the project because of the size of the UREC and its current sustainability initiatives. “They have signiﬁcant sustainability initiatives already happening and one of the great ones is Clear Water, Green Heart, which is trying to get people not to bring disposable plastic bottles into the UREC,” said Sattler. “So, it was a lovely ﬁt for us to be there.” Sattler and her class were looking for a space where people are able to interact with the project, and she is most excited about seeing the interactions. The Upcycle Exhibition Reception is to be held in Classroom 1 and is free and open to the public. The exhibition will be on display from Nov. 14 - Dec. 6.
