Senior running back puts negative experiences behind him Tyler Nunez Sports Writer


University moves to safer key procedure

The life of an LSU running back is one of perpetual worry. With their spots on the depth chart constantly in jeopardy, they must bring their best performance and utmost focus every week. Every game matters. Miss one, and they must fight an uphill battle back to the top. In a career riddled with injury and personal issues, senior running back Alfred Blue has seemingly fought this battle since he first donned the purple and gold. As a balanced back who averaged almost 6.6 yards per carry in his first three years at LSU, Blue would normally seem like a lock to play on Sundays. But after missing 13 career games, including 10 in 2012, his prospects of playing in the NFL rely heavily on his senior season. “It’s tough when you know he had a chance to leave early [to enter the NFL Draft] if he wanted to,” junior wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said. “Unfortunately, he had a season-ending injury, but he’s shaken back and he’s worked hard to rehab and get ready for the season.”

To end the headache of managing thousands of keys around campus, the University’s Facility Services department is making headway in implementing its new procedure for issuing and tracking keys. The new system utilizes an online database that allows Facility Services to track the keys once they are issued, according to Brian Broussard, the building access coordinator for Facility Services. With the old key system, Facility Services would cut and issue keys from its own lock shop based on work orders from various departments. Once keys were cut, Facility Services would give the keys to building coordinators, who are responsible for communicating with Facility Services about public safety and risk management concerns within their building. These building coordinators then issued keys to professors.

Campus stimulant use down despite national increase Desiree Robertson Contributing Writer

As the semester kicks into high gear, fewer students might seek an academic edge in the form of prescription stimulants than in the past. While a recent study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration found that emergency room visits because of stimulant abuse were on the rise, the use of “study drugs” like Adderall has actually declined at the University.

INTERNATIONAL Pres. Obama defends controversial NSA surveillance program STOCKHOLM (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday defended anew the United States’ controversial surveillance programs, trying to reassure Europeans that the National Security Agency’s spying apparatus acts in limited fashion to root out threats. “I can give assurances to the publics in Europe and around the world that we’re not going around snooping at people’s emails or listening to their phone calls,” Obama said during a news conference with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. Putin warns against Western action in Syria, doesn’t rule out Russian’s NOVO-OGARYOVO, Russia (AP) — President Vladimir Putin warned the West against taking one-sided action in Syria but also said Russia “doesn’t exclude” supporting a U.N. resolution on punitive military strikes if it is proved that Damascus used poison gas on its own people. In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press and Russia’s state Channel 1 television, Putin said Moscow has provided some components of the S-300 air defense missile system to Syria but has frozen further shipments.

Mayor invites Illinois gay couples to come to Minneapolis to wed

For Saints’ Robert Meachem, New Orleans feels like ‘home’

CHICAGO (AP) — With all of Illinois’ financial woes, residents have grown accustomed to politicians from other states trying to raid its companies, jobs and best workers. Now one of them is making a similar pitch to the state’s gay couples: Come north to get married, and spend lots of money. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will appear in a predominantly gay Chicago neighborhood Thursday to launch a campaign called “Marry Me in Minneapolis.” He plans to follow with campaigns in Colorado and Wisconsin. Police say rapist has attacked eight women in Dallas since June

METAIRIE (AP) — The first practice of Robert Meachem’s second stint with the Saints ended, he pulled off his No. 17 jersey and shoulder pads, then started running extra pass routes for Drew Brees on a mostly empty field. “Me and Drew, catching those balls. ... It was like: I’m back, you know?” Meachem said. “I’m just happy to be back.” Although Meachem was raised in Oklahoma and played college football at Tennessee, he repeatedly referred to New Orleans as “home.” His performances in the Big Easy produced a big free-agent offer last year from San Diego.

DALLAS (AP) — Police say a serial rapist has attacked six women in the last two weeks and eight, total, since June in a neighborhood near downtown Dallas that will host the state fair later this month. Investigators say the latest victim came forward Wednesday to report that she was assaulted Aug. 28. They say the suspect targets women who are out walking in the early morning hours near Fair Park. Maj. Jeff Cotner says patrols have been increased but that people should still be extra careful.

Man struck and killed on I-10 after leaving an earlier accident scene SULPHUR (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck on I-10 west of Sulphur after leaving an earlier accident scene. A news release from Louisiana State Police Troop D said the fatality happened shortly after 3 a.m. on Tuesday. Troopers said Timothy Johnson, 61, of Sulphur, was walking in the outside lane when he was struck by a 2001 Buick.

Writer advocates awareness, action against erosion Michael Tarver Contributing Writer

Mark Hertsgaard, nationallyrecognized writer and reporter, claimed there are three steps that University freshman can take to combat wetland erosion in an address to incoming Honors College students Wednesday. Hertsgaard discussed how students can get involved with the serious problem Louisiana faces with the disappearance of its coastal wetlands. His book, “HOT: Living Through The Next Fifty Years On Earth,” is being implemented into the honors curriculum within the University, and Hertsgaard’s talk is part of an effort to educate students about the growing global warming issue. The first thing Hertsgaard said students can do to combat the problem is simply acknowledge its existence. The next step is “just do something,” because any amount of action put into place does some good in helping the issue. The final thing that Hertsgaard urged is to “do something with others.” Hertsgaard explained that the current levee system in New

Orleans is a one- to 200-year protective system, meaning the levee system and therefore the city itself can withstand a catastrophic event — such as another hurricane Katrina — once every 200 years. However, with the disappearing land along the gulf coast, this time frame could shorten. It is possible New Orleans could only survive one major storm in a time frame less than 200 years. Though this is a vast improvement from the pre-Katrina system, it is still not adequate, Hertsgaard said. With the disappearance of the Gulf Coast wetlands comes the dissipating effect the land has on blocking hurricanes from immediately hitting populated areas. Because of this, the city’s ability to survive higher category storms will drastically decrease in the next 50 years, he said. To create change in the preservation of the eroding wetlands, Hertsgaard said students and people around the country must become politically active. “We need to create enough of a political movement to change the policy making of this country,” Hertsgaard said. Part of Hertsgaard’s goal in

talking to University students is to educate the incoming class on the issue that will directly affect their future homes, as well as motivating young people to do something about it. Hertsgaard said much of the rest of the country is unaware or unconcerned with the problem New Orleans and south Louisiana face. During Katrina, he said, the general question on Capitol Hill was why New Orleans should be reconstructed or saved in the first place. But America needs New Orleans to be a city that works, he said. Not only is New Orleans a port at the mouth of the biggest river in the country, but it’s also a center for rich and unique culture. Hertsgaard’s book discuses the topic in greater detail. He said because the future is in the hands of young people, it is partially their responsibility to help preserve the future of a city as important as New Orleans and south Louisiana as a whole.

Catholics fasting to show solidarity with Syrians Prayer service to be held Friday William Morris Contributing Writer

As a bloody civil war rages in Syria, Pope Francis has called on Catholics around the world to fast on behalf of the Syrian people, and University students plan to take part in the movement. Bob Stine, pastor of Christ the King Parish and Catholic Center, explained how a fast — abstaining from food as an act of humility — can help bring relief in times of war. In response to the pope’s call to action, Stine will host a special prayer service at the center on Friday at 11:45 a.m. “The idea is to raise awareness and to recognize our solidarity with people throughout the world who are suffering. ... We are all brothers and sisters in Christ,” Stine said. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a website run by Syrians that documents Human Rights violations in the county, the death toll is now more than 110,000 and climbing each day. Speaking from St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City on Sunday, Pope Francis denounced the use of chemical weapons and violence that has plagued Syria in

Redistricting lawsuit raises local awareness on voting rights City court election lines challenged Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez Staff Writer

Voting rights have a long history in the South, but a Baton Rouge lawsuit regarding the races of city court judges is giving locals and students a new sense of awareness on the issue. Baton Rouge residents Byron Sharper and Kenneth Hall filed suit against the state in October of 2012 for not drawing new district lines for Baton Rouge city court judge elections after the 2000 census indicated the location of the city’s primarily African-American population. Three out of the five judgeships are white, and Chief U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson told The Advocate about 55 percent of the city’s population is AfricanAmerican. The lawsuit argues against

KEYS, from page 1

For more than a decade, building coordinators have been keeping track of hundreds of keys with only a notebook, making it difficult to manage the security of more than 100 academic buildings on campus, according to Sam Territo, associate director of facility maintenance. “With the online key database, you are able to actually get control of keys and hold people accountable, which allows us to have a more secure campus,” Broussard said. Territo said not being able to track keys could lead to the wrong individuals having access to buildings. “When a student is working late in a facility, we want them to be concentrated on their studies, not worried about ‘Did I hear a noise?’” Territo said. Another part of the program still in the works will eventually allow building coordinators to use the database to see who has keys in their own buildings, which will also improve accountability and safety, Broussard said. Although the online database is up and running, Territo said it could take years before the entire campus is on the system. “The time it takes to implement the procedure is a function of the number of buildings we have,” Territo said. Numerous buildings on campus are also moving toward card access capabilities as part of the new procedure. Roughly 26 buildings on campus have card readers so far, Broussard said. The advantage of the card readers, although more expensive to initially install, is that the operating costs are lower in the long run, Territo said. In the event

the Baton Rouge City Court that election boundaries weaken African-American votes and is still waiting on a ruling from federal courts. Attempts to redraw district lines were made in this year’s legislative session by state Rep. Alfred Williams, D-Baton Rouge, but his bill was shut down. Political communication junior Jacob Irving interned for attorney Steve Irving this summer and said this case is of particular political interest for students because it affects everyone. “A lot of people think of gerrymandering as some distant kind of thing, and it’s affecting you,” Irving said. Irving said even if students are not from this area and find themselves having to go to court for something minor, they are still affected by this case. Attorney Ronald Johnson, representing Hall, said any person who registers to vote or is eligible to vote should take an interest in cases that protect a citizen’s right

to vote. “Whenever a person is discriminated against, in any sense of the word, you want to make sure that their right to vote is not abridged,” Johnson said. Louisiana has a long history with voting rights violation and even though it is no longer the case that only property owning white men can vote, there are still plans in place that reduce the ability to have votes equally counted, Johnson said. Additionally, Johnson said the state was found violating the national Voting Rights Act last year for not providing citizens with enough information to register to vote. “Whenever there is a plan in place that impermissibly and unlawfully diminishes the right to vote and you have legislatures do it, then they have to be challenged” Johnson said.

a card is lost or stolen, that card is deactivated and a new one quickly reissued. Territo said the program was implemented to improve the overall safety of the campus community and will only be successful with the help of the LSU Police Department and every other college at the University, which has partnered with Facility Services to make the transition.

“We are not as island,” Territo said. “We have so many people on our campus every day that we want to do whatever it takes to make our campus community a safe place for students.”

Thursday, September 5, 2013 BLUE, from page 1 Blue entered 2013 ready to put these obstacles behind him. He started by garnering 89 yards in 19 carries in LSU’s season opener against TCU. “I just want to end [my career at LSU] on a good note and have a good season,” Blue said. “... I am just going to take it one game at a time and give my team my all.” The Boutte, La., native showed promise early in his freshman season, carrying the ball 13 times for 66 yards in his first three appearances at running back. But after an injury kept him out for two games halfway into the season, Blue spent most of his playing time on special teams and only ran the ball in one more game. As a sophomore in 2011, he had to deal with a different kind of hindrance when he lost his family home in a September fire. Despite what might seem like an unavoidable distraction and competing with Michael Ford, Spencer Ware and up-and-coming Kenny Hilliard, Blue managed to emerge as LSU’s most efficient option in the backfield, accumulating 543 yards and seven touchdowns in 78 carries that year. His hard work paid off, as he entered 2012 atop the depth chart. He seemed poised to have a landmark year, becoming the first Tiger since Charles Scott in 2008 to open a season with back-to-back 100-yard games. But as fate would have it,

But if the drug isn’t under the student’s prescription, consuming it comes with many risks, she said. The University’s Student Health Center has guidelines in place when it comes to student receiving initial prescription and refills of stimulants to prevent abuse and misuse. At the University, students have to go through an assessment by a mental health professional and

Blue suffered a season-ending knee injury in LSU’s third game against Idaho. “It was hard watching games like Florida and Alabama, knowing I couldn’t go out there and help my teammates win,” Blue said. “It was hard knowing I couldn’t contribute.” Senior wide receiver James Wright said Blue maintained a positive attitude throughout all of these hardships. “Every time I saw him, he had his head up.” Wright said. “He never really seemed to be down. He was always looking to get better each and every day. ... He was never negative about his misfortunes.” The way Blue’s career has unfolded has led to a special relationship between him and LSU’s fanbase. When he lost his house, the LSU faithful donated more than $80,000 to the Relief-4-Blue fund set up by the Tiger Athletic Foundation, according to And you can be sure every time he breaks off a big run, Death Valley will erupt in a chant elongating his surname. “There is no place like LSU and playing in Tiger Stadium,” he said. “The fans love you, and I just try to go out there every Saturday night and give them my all, because I know they have our backs every time we go out there on the field.” Contact Tyler Nunez at; Twitter: @NunezTDR

must see the professional on a regular basis to be reevaluated. Even if a student meets all the requirements and is approved, they only receive a 30 day prescription with no refills and have to return each month to get a new prescription, Wang said. He said another dangerous trend is students mixing these prescription stimulants with alcohol. This can cause students’ blood pressure and heart rate to rise and fall. It can also lead to constricting blood vessels, increasing blood sugar, heart attacks and strokes. Contact Desiree Robertson at

Don’t expect a Ravens repeat



LSU golf alumni pave the way for current generation

College kicked off the football season last weekend, and tonight the Broncos and Ravens will get the NFL season underway. Even though a scheduling conflict is preventing them from opening at home and raising the banner, the Ravens are nonetheless the defending Super Bowl champions. However, the only thing harder than winning one Vince Lombardi Trophy is winning two in a row. The Ravens went on an incredible run last winter, but I don’t see it happening again. Ironically, the biggest reason they won last season also happens to be the biggest reason they won’t win the trophy again — quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco’s 2013 postseason was unbelievably well-timed and arguably the best stretch of quarterback play in the league’s history. Eleven touchdowns and zero interceptions during the four games delivered Baltimore a championship and Flacco a brand-new $120.6 million contract. The Ravens had to reward him for his play. He went on an all-time hot streak and delivered a

Fumbles an anomaly for LSU Fumble vs. TCU first since Towson Lawrence Barreca Sports Writer

CONNOR TARTER / The Daily Reveille

LSU junior running back Terrence Magee (14) maneuvers downfield on Saturday during the Tigers’ 32-27 victory against TCU in the 2013 Cowboys Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Prior to the game, the Tigers had not fumbled in 331 consecutive carries.

The date was Saturday, Sept. 29. Towson University travelled to Tiger Stadium for LSU’s final nonconference game of 2012. On first and 10 on the Towson 18-yard line in the third quarter, former LSU running back Michael Ford fumbled, turning the ball over and ending a potential Tigers scoring drive. That was the last time LSU lost a fumble all season, finishing the year with 296 consecutive carries without a turnover. So when senior running back Alfred Blue fumbled on the Tigers’

six-yard line against TCU Saturday night, one could say it was an anomaly. “It was a miscommunication between me and [senior quarterback] Zach [Mettenberger],” Blue said. “We fixed it in practice this week, and hopefully it won’t happen again.” That capped the number at

331 consecutive running back carries without a fumble lost, a statistic that tends to go unnoticed when the scorebooks close at the end of the season. During his 2012 freshman season, Jeremy Hill carried the ball 142 times — spanning his entire year — FUMBLES, see page 6

La. native spurns LSU for Bama Offensive production leads to better defense Robinson was No. 3 player overall

Jennings expected to play more

Trey Labat Sports Writer

Cam Robinson, a five-star offensive tackle from West Monroe High School, chose to join Alabama over LSU in a ceremony at the school Wednesday afternoon. Robinson was the top-ranked offensive tackle in his class, while being the No. 3 overall player, according to ESPN rankings. He will join fellow Louisiana wide receiver Cameron Sims at Alabama, continuing a trend of top Louisiana recruits taking the trip to Tuscaloosa. “The recruiting process has been crazy,” Robinson said. “A lot of great coaches recruiting me, a lot of great programs.” During the ceremony, Robinson hinted that Sims’ commitment to Alabama influenced his decision to choose crimson over the purple and gold. The prospect of early playing time as well as his close relationship with coach Nick Saban and offensive line coach Mario Cristobal was also a factor in the decision, according to Robinson. While LSU lost Robinson, several top Louisiana recruits are still undecided on their future — including the consensus best player in the nation, St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette.

without committing a turnover. Blue had 127 straight carries before Saturday’s fumble. His fumble against TCU was his first since he lost his grip against Mississippi State in 2010. Even Kenny Hilliard, who struggled with fumbling early in his sophomore season, finished the year with a strong grip, going 34-straight carries without a turnover to end the campaign. Preventing fumbles is a concern at practice. So much so, the squad dedicates five minutes strictly to ball security every day before runthroughs begin. Even the LSU defensive backs are noticing the backfield’s improvement. “In practice, somebody secures the tackle, and then the next person comes in and tries to rip the ball out,” said sophomore cornerback Jalen Collins. “We always work on trying to get turnovers, and it does help because they work so much on ball security that it’s hard to get out.” Blue, who injured his knee against Idaho in 2012 and failed to return, wanted to start the season off on a positive note. The senior carried the ball 19 times for 89 yards but had the pivotal fumble that turned momentum in the Horned Frogs favor. It was a rough return to the field for Blue, but the entire running back corps assumed responsibility.

field, has been just as tense on the recruiting trail. In the 2013 class, freshman cornerback Jeryl Brazil was subject to intense interest from both LSU and Alabama — at different points throughout Brazil’s commitment he committed to both schools before eventually choosing LSU. Sophomore linebacker Kwon Alexander, who is originally from Alabama, eventually chose the Tigers over the Crimson Tide — much to the chagrin of the Alabama coaching staff. That same year, heralded Louisiana prospect Landon Collins spurned LSU and left his home state for the confines of Tuscaloosa. At Robinson’s commitment, fellow Louisiana safety

prospect Hootie Jones — the No. 2 ranked safety in the nation — was also present. The loss of Robinson is buoyed by the fact LSU has already secured the verbal commitments of two four-star offensive lineman, University Lab’s Garrett Brumfield — teammate of 2015 recruit Nick Brossette — and Brother Martin High School’s William Clapp. LSU has already secured verbal commitments from 14 total players for the 2014 recruiting class, nine of which are members of the ESPN top 300.

“My stomach kind of dropped, but Blue is a leader, and yesterday after practice we ran for that fumble,” said junior running back Terrence Magee. “When one person does it, it’s like we all do it. He stepped up, and he apologized and said that it wouldn’t happen again.” Magee himself didn’t have ample opportunities to carry the football a season ago. With a stacked backfield, Magee got only one carry as a sophomore, so ball security wasn’t an issue. But after getting 13 carries for 95 yards and two touchdowns against TCU, the junior will have to shift his focus to providing momentum for the offense. Magee and Blue will both look

to keep the ball in their hands as the season progresses. They will be following a secret creed created by running backs coach Frank Wilson that is only known by the members of the backfield. Though neither Tiger wished to make the creed public, they both said that it has an impact on them during the game, and it has clearly been effective over the past year. “We’ve got a creed that we say about ball security, and it’s a big emphasis on every practice that we go into that you don’t put the ball on the ground,” Magee said.

The Tigers produced 448 yards of total offense against TCU and controlled the clock, earning a time of possession of just more than 36 minutes. And according to Tigers coach Les Miles, the offense has no intention of stepping off the gas. “Our offense has got a want to compete at a very high level,” Miles said. “They have enjoyed the success they had last Saturday. It’s certainly something they want to have happen again.” As a result, LSU’s defense spent most of Saturday watching rather than playing. This is exactly what Miles was looking for, and he said he hopes this becomes the norm as the season wears on. “That’s the best thing,” Miles said. “You prefer to keep a small number of very well trained guys on the field. The lesser the snaps the more we are able to do that.” JENNINGS TO BE IMPLEMENTED Freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings’ 2-yard quarterback sneak for a first down Saturday was his sole play. Jennings was a larger part of the initial game plan for TCU,

Miles said, but the coaching staff was unable to find the right time to put him in. It’s likely fans will see more and more of Jennings as the season progresses. “We’d like to see him get a couple throws and run the offense a bit, but I like how we were handling the plays and how we ran them,” Miles said. “We wanted to get him in earlier but, frankly, did not get the opportunity to.” STATUS ON UNCERTAIN PLAYERS Miles said junior tight end Travis Dickson and senior linebacker Tahj Jones are on schedule to return to the field on Saturday and confirmed freshman cornerback Corey Thompson practiced Wednesday. When asked about freshman defensive back Rashard Robinson, who was reinstated to the team last week after an NCAA investigation concerning an online course he took over the summer, Miles said he has a lot of work to do before he is game ready. “I don’t know about his readiness just yet,” Miles said. “He’s got to [catch up]. ... I do not know how soon he will be ready to play for us.

Check out a map of boutiques around Baton Rouge at

While the mall may seem like a one-stop shop for all of your fashion needs, there are more than 20 local boutiques here in Baton Rouge with unique options that you can’t find at the mall. Aside from that, supporting locally owned businesses is good for our economy. Here’s a round up of a few of the best local boutiques. photos by ANGELA MAJOR / The Daily Reveille



Tory Burch Reva flats, $195

Luster shorts, $49 Qupid ankle boots, $49

7474 Corporate Blvd. NK Boutique is a higher-end boutique that helps compensate for the fact that we don’t have a Nieman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman here in Baton Rouge. Though many college students may not frequent this boutique in fear of its high prices, NK is right up your alley if you’re into high-end brands like Badgley Mischka, Diane Von Furstenburg, Halston Heritage, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and Tibi, to name a few. My favorite item from NK is the Tory Burch Reva flat. It’s a staple in any college student’s wardrobe and it’s at NK for $195. If you have couture taste but a thrift-store budget, you can still window-shop NK Boutique’s website at

7474 Corporate Blvd. Frock Candy is by far the most affordable boutique in Baton Rouge. You can always find an awesome sale going on here. Right now, they have an additional 40 percent off of all clearance merchandise. Aside from being budget-friendly, Frock Candy is fashion forward. Its shift dresses are adorable and go well with their statement necklaces. If you like to look fabulous without breaking the bank, Frock Candy makes a perfect match.



4410 Highland Road 7474 Corporate Blvd. Blink has the most variety in town. Between the locations on Corporate Boulevard and Highland Road, it carries something for everyone. I love their leather high-waisted shorts, but some of the clothing can get a bit expensive. No worries though — between the $20 clearance rack and the $20 skinnies in a myriad of colors, the boutique offers more affordable options. The shoes here are also fantastic, especially their ankle booties. There’s also a limited selection of flats on sale for $10.

4410 Highland Road Jean Therapy is close to campus and they sell mainly — you guessed it — denim. However, despite the name, Jean Therapy has amazing shoes; I’m talking Dolce Vita and Steve Madden. The shoe selection can lean a little toward the expensive side, but the 50 percent-off sale for all the designer shoes right now promises some chance at bargains. I took advantage and got these awesome Dolce Vita wedges with gold accents.

Whimsy Clothing peplum top, $19

THE BOUTIQUE 4733 Jones Creek Road Many students don’t know about The Boutique because it’s so far from campus, but if you ever find yourself out on the Shenandoah side of town, be sure to check them out. If you’re in the market for more LSU gear (can you ever have enough?), The Boutique has a whole room in the store dedicated to purple and gold clothes. My favorite thing about The Boutique is the entire wall dedicated to statement necklaces in almost any color you can imagine. It’s like dying and going to accessories heaven. The necklaces alone are enough to make the schlep, but there is also a menswear section at The Boutique so you can shop for guys, too.

‘Facebook Detectives’ movie filmed in Baton Rouge Lifetime shakes up traditional formula Taylor Schoen Entertainment Writer

courtesy of DANIEL LEWIS

“Facebook Detectives,” a Lifetime film, centers around a young woman who goes missing after becoming consumed by social media.

Baton Rouge residents have experienced a surge of film crews making both small- and bigscreen productions in the past few years, and this summer was no different. Lifetime television network recently wrapped its film “Facebook Detectives,” which was shot here in the Capital City. Like most Lifetime movies, “Facebook Detectives” is rife with tropes of women in jeopardy, based-on-a-true-storyness and outlandish plot twists, according to producer Daniel

Lewis. However, Lewis said this movie will add bite to the traditional Lifetime formula. “I would say it’s similar to [other Lifetime films], but it’s a bit more edgy. It’s a bit more dark,” Lewis explained. “Most Lifetime movies for a long time have been the same formula and the same kind of plot and the same storyline. This has a lot of twists and turns. You don’t really know who’s guilty and who’s innocent. It definitely takes you on a fun ride.” “Facebook Detectives” was shot over the course of three weeks in a 15-day shoot.

Ariana Grande, “Yours Truly”

Republic Records

Ariana Grande’s smooth, melodic voice paired with R&B beats on her new album “Yours Truly” makes for a great set of tunes to listen to this fall. At this point, we’ve probably all heard her single “The Way,” but the Spanglish version on the album brings a whole new dimension to this song that sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill R&B songs on the radio. These days, it’s difficult to find a singer that actually has a great voice, but when Grande sings, it takes me back to “The Emancipation of the Mimi” from Mariah Carey’s glory days. Seriously, can we talk about how Ariana and Mariah are voice twins? Aside from the great vocals on this album, I love the features from Big Sean and Mac Miller. There was a lot of anticipation for this album with high expectations, and Grande delivered. SHAMIYAH KELLEY

Chelsea Wolfe, “Pain Is Beauty”

Sargent House

Sultry crooner Chelsea Wolfe has graced audiences with more songs to bask in her melancholy beauty with her fourth album “Pain Is Beauty.” Wolfe’s haunting voice balances with transcendental piano melodies and quirky synth touches. The first few songs are slow and sad, yet intricately thought out and wonderfully composed. To break from the sorrowful monotony, Wolfe gets groovy with the psychedelic “Destruction Makes the World Burn Brighter,” but soon returns to her ethereal, almost ghostly sound. With hints of Imogen Heap and Florence + the Machine, Wolfe provides powerhouse vocals with a wide range and pitch. However, many of her songs lack the jaunty supporting music and upbeat tempos. While Wolfe certainly displays talent, this album isn’t meant for jam out sessions or casual listening.

[ B- ]


Nine Inch Nails, “Hesitation Marks”

Columbia Records

“Hesitation Marks,” the latest album from Nine Inch Nails is in no way a bad album. However, none of the songs on the album break new ground or do anything different from what the band has done in the past. For the most part, the album has the classic industrial/experimental feel Nine Inch Nails is known for. It isn’t surprising at all for the band that blew up industrial music to stay true to it. There are a few tracks with an arena-heavy vibe, like “All Time Low,” “Everything” and “Satellite,” that make a nice addition, but despite the quality of the album, it feels like the band played it safe. While it may not be a bad thing, it would have benefited from straying into something different.


“This Is Us”

Sony Pictures

Yes, I went 3-D to get the full experience. No, you should not. Save the 3-D glasses. The One Direction boys are already three dimensional. That part is not a scam, but after the millionth screaming teenage girl with tears running down her face — the first of which occurs about ten minutes in — you’re going to want to leave. The film is bearable if viewed as a comedy, but that’s obviously not it’s intention. Even worse, the movie gives almost no information on who the band actually is. The entire film was a concert documentary following shows and focusing on fans, dragging on and on without telling the audience anything new. I’m not even sure of where each boy went to school, if any of them have siblings or what their favorite anything is — all of which are answers I’d expect from a movie with “This Is Us” in the title.

Band reunions not always good THE DOCTER IS IN REBECCA DOCTER Entertainment Writer Possibly the worst concert experience I’ve ever had, started out ordinary enough — teeny-boppers assaulting others while pushing through to the front of the crowd, trying to get their fifteen seconds of fame on the jumbotron, countless metal heads whining about the chosen pre-concert playlist and cougars staking out the barricades trying to catch a glimpse of their “rock gods.” Only this time, it was different. I probably should have realized going to an Ozzy Osbourne show was a bad idea from the getgo, but I let my friend convince me this was one of those once-in-a-lifetime things that you’re supposed to do for the experience — this would be something I’d tell my grandkids about. Apparently that was the plan for most of the people in the audience, who I’m pretty sure already had grandkids. Ozzy, pushing 60 at the time, was slurring his speech more than usual and could barely figure out the function of a guitar, but that was nothing compared to the overaged crowd messing up the lyrics to Black Sabbath songs I was actually looking forward to hearing live. This was the point when I realized how much I hate band reunions. I guess, to be more specific, I hate reunion tours. The word “reunion” itself even has a negative

connotation — the mental picture of a bunch of 40-year-olds trying to recreate their “Sixteen Candles” high school fantasy springs to mind. There comes a point in a band or musician’s career when they should stop and realize they shouldn’t tour anymore (does anyone else remember Gene Simmons’ mall tour?). It seems as though at least one of three things always happens: 1. 2.


What began as an attempted journey through nostalgia swiftly transformed into a waste of time and money. Only a handful of reunions have ever truly worked, and those usually involved an album release that massively peaked in sales (My Bloody Valentine) or a short timespan between the band’s hiatus and reunion (Neutral Milk Hotel). After my Ozzy experience, when a reunion tour comes my way, I don’t usually chance it. I’m not saying I’ll never experience one again, but I’ll tread carefully.

The band plays a set of about five songs and grows too tired to continue. Everyone in the crowd is there for “that” song, and once it’s done, everyone leaves. The set is so completely terrible (Ozzy, I’m looking at you) that you wonder why you even liked this band to begin with.

“Pretty Little Liars” season 4 finale

ABC Family

SPOILER ALERT: I could’ve told you that Ezra was involved in the “A-Team” from the beginning, and if you were surprised at this revelation in the season finale of “Pretty Little Liars,” then you are incredibly naïve (Why else would a teacher randomly keep showing up in a student’s life?). The episode itself was decent in that it summed up quite a few mysteries that plagued the Liars (Who is Red Coat? What’s happening with Hanna’s mom?), but in many respects, it was a total let down. There was so much information being thrown at the viewer (So now there are two Red Coats? Is Alison really alive? What actually is Ravenswood?) that it was difficult to keep up with each storyline, making the show hard to follow.


EDITOR’S PICK: Sleigh Bells, “Bitter Rivals”

Mom + Pop

I’ll admit, when the music video for “Bitter Rivals” first showed up on my newsfeed, the image of guitarist Derek Miller wearing a Tyrann Mathieu jersey and shoving a tiger-striped guitar into the camera won me over before I even hit play. Fortunately, the song is cool enough to back up the video. Led by the punk-rock power of singer Alexis Krauss, the track roars to life on the verses before bringing it down for a chorus with the kind of infectious hook that takes days to shake. Though certainly catchy, the production on “Bitter Rivals” comes off much clearer and cleaner than Sleigh Bells’ signature lo-fi sound from past albums. Props for taking a new — and more accessible — direction for a new album, but part of me still KACI YODER Entertainment Editor prefers them unpolished.

championship in his walk year. For general manager Ozzie Newsome it was either make Flacco the highestpaid QB in league history, or be the

guy who let the Super Bowl MVP walk. The problem for Baltimore is the contract is based far more on one magical playoff run than an overall body of work.

PATRICK SEMANSKY / The Associated Press

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco prepares to throw a pass on Aug. 22 during the Ravens preseason game against the Carolina Panthers in Baltimore.

ALUMNI LESSONS, from page 5

nowadays, including those at LSU, four of whom — juniors Ben Taylor, Landon Lyons, Myles Lewis and senior Stewart Jolly — competed in the 2013 U.S. Amateurs on Aug. 14. “We’re gonna give it about three years after [college], and if it doesn’t work, we’ll go get an ole desk job,” Lewis said. But adapting to a professional golfer’s everyday schedule with little rest is a challenge. Recent LSU graduates John Peterson and Andrew Loupe both finished in the top 75 of the Tour last week, getting one step closer to earning full rights to play on the PGA Tour in 201314. The two 2011 Tiger alumni recognize the uniqueness of playing in the professional circuit, and the work that goes along with it. “I came into college just as confident as every other kid, but you spend your freshman year getting your face beat in and you realize that you need to get a little better.” Peterson said. “But out here, on tour, you’re playing every week. ... It’s just a different game.” On tour, courses change every week, hole locations change every day and days off don’t exist. Two years removed from college, Loupe’s learned that it’s

the little things in a golfer’s game which demand the most attention. He believes having a sound short game is a “big deal in saving shots.” The expression “drive for show, putt for dough,” isn’t just a one-liner. In their young careers, Peterson and Loupe can attest to the amount of practice and patience it takes just to compete in a professional tournament. “It’s taken me a while to get a finish in the top two or three,” Peterson said. “You know you’re time’s coming, but you just got to wait it out.” Toms knows this all too well. Three years after Toms’ 1988 U.S. Amateur appearance, he earned his first full PGA Tour Card. Ten years later, he won the 2001 PGA Championship, his only major victory and an achievement Toms said forever put him “in a special category.” Still on tour at 46, Toms is energized by today’s rising golfers. And unlike other sports, a newly turned PGA Tour pro has the same shot at success as a 25th-year veteran. “The golfers coming out of college now are pretty well adapted and adjusted,” Toms said. “It might take a while to have some success on the PGA Tour, but the young players have been playing against great competition for so long that they are ready.”

In his five seasons as the Ravens’ starter, Flacco has never thrown for 4,000 yards in a single season. In that time, he’s tallied 102 touchdowns which ranks him No. 12 in the league since 2008. That’s not bad, but it’s not what you’d expect from a guy who just got paid more than $120 million. The 11 quarterbacks ahead of Flacco include Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, who each missed a full season with injuries. The leader since 2008, Drew Brees, has 82 more touchdowns than Flacco during that time. Again he’s not bad, but he’s also not worth the largest average annual salary in league history. That type of money should be reserved for quarterbacks who can put a team on their back and carry it to victory despite obvious deficiencies. Actually, it needs to be because if you spend more than $20 million of the salary cap on one player, then you will have holes across the rest of your roster. The Ravens discovered this over the summer. Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard, Paul Kruger and

Dannell Ellerbe highlighted a group of Ravens defenders who were allowed to walk in favor of cheaper options in order to afford Flacco’s massive deal. Add in that Ray Lewis, the undeniable heart and soul of the Ravens’ defense, has traded in covering the field for covering the game for ESPN, you would have to assume the Ravens’ defense would take at least a small step backward. However, the Ravens’ losses weren’t limited to the defense. Leading receiver Anquan Boldin, who caught a team-high four touchdowns during the postseason run, was traded to San Francisco. Boldin’s departure coupled with tight end Dennis Pitta’s hip injury means Flacco will begin 2013 without two of his topthree receivers from last season. In order for Baltimore to have a shot at repeating, Flacco must fill the leadership void left by Lewis and Reed, and help compensate for a lower-budget defense. That’s just asking too much without the same offensive weapons he enjoyed last season.

I’m not saying the Ravens will fall off a cliff. Ray Rice and Torrey Smith are great options, Newsome will do a decent job replacing the defensive talent and John Harbaugh is too good a coach to let that happen. But in order to make another serious run at a title, the Ravens need Flacco to be an elite player for an entire season, and there’s nothing in his track record to suggest that’s going to happen. Maybe the Ravens still have enough talent to sneak into the playoffs in the tissue-paper soft AFC, but the closest I think Flacco will get to MetLife Stadium this February is the alumni weekend at the University of Delaware.

Golfers are on their own, fighting for their life in every match. Sportsmanship tops whatever the scoreboard reads, but even for two fellow Tigers, competition doesn’t get lost in the rough. “It’s such an individual sport,” Peterson said. “You’re trying to beat the guy you’re playing with as bad as you can and you gotta somehow shake hands at the end and say ‘good playing.’ There’s nothing you can do, it’s you versus the course.” While Loupe pulls for Peterson, the attitude changes on the links. Loupe likens Peterson as his brother — who’s trying to beat him “very badly.” Playing alongside one’s peers

is an experience singular to golf. Peterson and Toms are years apart, but the two golfers seem to have more in common than just a closet full of purple and gold. Paired together in the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open, the duo ended up finishing the tournament tied for fourth place. However, the rare experience was a victory in itself. “[Toms] has been a mentor to me for five, six years now,” Peterson said. “To get paired with him in my first major last year at the U.S. Open was really awesome. It was nice to be playing with the guy I felt really comfortable around in that kind of situation.”

When current Tigers pull on shirts labeled ‘LSU,’ they take pride in teeing off for a University that has seen its alumni have success at the highest level of the game. “You want to be in that realm of athletes who succeed after college and it puts a good name for the LSU golf program.” Lewis said. “Obviously, we’re doing something right if we have people that are playing on tour. You just got to put in the work for it, though. Put in the work, things will come.”

Same Blood FDA anti-LGBT policy out of touch, offensive

THE CHARD TRUTH Justin Blanchard Columnist When reading the eligibility for donating blood on the American Red Cross website, you will find various requirements such as being healthy, being older than 17 years of age and weighing more than 130 pounds. What you will not see on the website is the fact that if you are a homosexual or bisexual male, you cannot donate blood. Why, you ask? Because in 1969, the “Gay AIDS Epidemic” broke out and the idiotic Food and Drug Administration closed blood donation clinic doors to all MSM— men who have sex with men— because of their increased risk for HIV, hepatitis B and other infections contracted though transfusion. The even-more-idiotic Russian State Duma MP Mikhail Degtyarev recently proposed the highly criticized anti-LGBT Russian government reintroduce the ban of blood donated by MSM. In a news conference in Moscow, the hopeful mayoral candidate even referred to the FDA’s ban in an effort to gain support. Degtyarev referenced the FDA

policy to create anti-LGBT legislation. Yes, you read that correctly. The American government should realize that it is setting an example for anti-LGBT legislation in foreign countries and at the same time insisting that American LGBT Olympic Athletes be protected from Russia’s anti-LGBT laws. The FDA needs to remove this ban. It’s undeniably discriminatory and assumes that any homosexual or bisexual man has HIV. Contrary to what the FDA says, MSM are fully capable citizens who can practice safe sex and avoid contracting HIV through safe practices and regular testing. There is no reason that they should not be able to support fellow Americans in need. My senior year of high school, I decided that I would forget my fear of needles and attempt to donate blood. Unfamiliar with the procedure, I grew nervous when I was called from a list so a mechanical mosquito could suck the blood from my arm. But before any blood draining happened, I had to pass an examination. “When was the last time you have been out of the country? Which country? For how long?” I was asked. I was content to know my trip

to France did not disqualify me from potentially saving the life of a person in desperate need. Then I reached my termination of eligiblity. Being homosexual, I was told that I could not donate my blood. For the first time, I experienced discrimination from the American government. It was disheartening to be told that I can’t be a part of a joint effort to save lives because of my uncontrollable affection to the same sex. It is hard enough living in the South and being LGBT. Just last July, an East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputy arrested a man after he lied and lured him into verbally agreeing to have sex. He arrested the man under a Louisiana anti-sodomy law that was deemed unconstiutional by the Supreme Court more than a decade ago. Police officers — people we are taught to trust — targeting homosexual people is not where the buck stops. LGBT people face enough turmoil on a local level— discrimination on a federal level is completely unnecessary and frankly unnerving. To help prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS it is important that we all get tested, regardless of our sexualities.

violates free speech laws or they assault you, you can’t really do anything about it. And that’s a good thing. As a feminist (a stance I’m entirely sympathetic too, solidarity and all that), you should take into account the uphill battle it takes for minority opinions to take hold. Limiting free speech, even by location, only makes it harder for minority voices to be heard. It’s the best tool for established opinions to limit the threat of new ideas.” -lelibertaire

Therefore, Chevron is trying to buy off LSU??? First of all, the person with the most say in faculty employment at LSU is the dean.

What makes you think that the opinion of a rich outsider is going to trump the egos and ambitions of several professors and a dean? Oh right, money. Because money buys

McCain’s poker game shows clear disconnect in gov’t BRACE YOURSELF RYAN MCGEHEE Columnist Sitting through class for hours on end sucks. The lectures are not engaging, and the droning of your average professor could lull an insomniac to sleep. However, it’s why we’re here: to go to class to get the grades so we can make the big bucks someday. You could say it is our job to go to class. On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., must not have been engaged at his job. In the middle of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Syrian crisis, McCain thought it would be more productive to try his hand at Texas Hold ’Em than to listen to arguments for and against U.S. military intervention in Syria. Interesting, since the senator has been the strongest congressional supporter of military action. One would think a war hero who endured years of torture would be more attentive to arguments opposite him before voting to send our service members into harm’s way. What’s more, the senator was unapologetic about his gaffe,

MELINE MARA / The Associated Press

Senator John McCain plays poker on his iPhone on Tuesday during a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

tweeting, “worst of all I lost!” McCain’s disinterest in opposing arguments and the proceedings in general show a clear disconnect between Congress, McCain and the realities of the situation at hand. The panel speaking before the committee consisted of Secretary of State John Kerry, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. For approximately three hours, senators

discussed and debated the merits of a limited military action in Syria. As of Wednesday, McCain has withdrawn his support for the president’s plan for a limited strike in favor of more aggressive language in the draft resolution. Apparently, an attack by a full carrier battle group supplemented by a destroyer squadron would not be thorough enough for the senator. The limited strike planned would be bad enough, but McCain

thinks we should handle the situation like we did in Kosovo. Newsflash: we still have forces in Kosovo to this day, and our limited action there occurred in 1999. In Louisiana, we know a thing or two about out-of-touch leaders. Gov. Bobby Jindal pushed a reform in education that demands teachers prepare students for standardized tests instead of actually educating them, and then

appointed a State superintendent who barely had experience teaching. Here at LSU, F. King Alexander will be spending weekends in Washington, D.C., getting chummy with lobbyists, and has even elected to not work out of the chancellor’s office here on campus. Disconnected leadership is our reality. However, when it comes to decisions that could and will result in numerous deaths, be they American or Syrian, we are not wrong to expect it of our elected officials, much less a tenured foreign policy expert, be at least moderately interested in the debate. McCain needs to seriously consider his priorities before pulling out his iPhone. He was elected to make the best decisions possible for his state and the country, not act like a freshman in western civ. Then again, maybe it is time for him to fold and get out of politics.

Technology blues not a student’s best color ’DAM, GIRL MORGAN SEARLES Columnist I had to kick myself when I spotted Frank Bruni’s column in The New York Times on Tuesday about how technology allows people to create a homogenous world of their own tastes and opinions, blinding us from expanding our cultural horizons. The words hit close to home with bruising force, a pointed punch on the past handful of nights I’ve spent stuck to my computer screen, door locked and windows closed against the resounding music of nearby parties. Every day I’ve completed a handful of tasks and many nights I’ve retreated to American movies, music and television shows. This is a sad excuse for a reward system, one I’ve clung to since binge became the verb most closely associated with Netflix. Everyone does it. It’s not that bad for you. It gives you a sense of control. On any given thirsty Thursday or Louisiana Saturday night, how often are we more inclined to entertain ourselves at home on the couch with Hungry Howie’s and a “Mad Men” marathon? Why is it easy to say we deserve a break

from the world and a feast of “No Reservations.” Instead, we should be throwing back our days with shots of firewater like Anthony Bourdain. At the end of the day, when we get home from work or school and the buzz of stress still vibrates in our veins, we often find it more convenient to quiet the hum with guilty pleasures than worthwhile exploits. Personal expense comes into play when the cost of dinner or drinks or a night on the town doesn’t seem worth the reward of experience, and the cost of energy and inconvenience laden the bill until the clear choice is the lazy one. The “poor college student” excuse is more than a cliché. It’s a genuine obstacle when tuition, rent and living expenses tower over the salary of a part-time job. We must become warriors of happy hour, knights of weekly dinner specials and saviors of the lost change in the couch. It’s an exercise of will to pull together our booze-night best, run a brush through the bed head we’ve been rocking through the school day and bribe a designated driver to escort us through a pregame, a party and the Taco Bell drive-through at the end of it all. But it’s worth the effort when you can escape the smoldering seductress that is a

sweatpants Saturday. If you’ve ever complained that Baton Rouge lacks culture or things to occupy your wandering mind, I challenge you to go to the Red Stick Farmer’s Market, Art Melt, White Light Night or Live After Five. Drive an hour to New Orleans for a free show at Tipitina’s, a night in Marigny or a meal at Cooter Brown’s. Spend a night in only when your feet are too sore, your palate is too sophisticated and your brain is too overwhelmed with the life experience you’ve acquired. Watch a foreign film. Listen to a new album. Don’t fall into what Bruni named “virtual enclaves” or “a thoroughly customized cocoon.” I’m damn tired of old white men telling me technology is ruining Generations X and Y. Text your plans, make a Facebook group, Instagram those moments when you can’t stop laughing and are #drunk and #highonlife, but don’t let it hold you back.
