UNIVERSITY TO REVERSE BIG TEN MOVE, STAY IN ACC President Loh: ‘I’ve made a B1G mistake’ By Haywood Jadoome @afporoills Junior senior staff writer The university announced plans yesterday to reverse its decision to switch conferences and rejoin the ACC on July 2, one day after leaving the conference to move to the Big Ten.
The ACC, which the university helped form in 1953, still expects the university to pay the $52 million exit fee. In addition, the university will have to pay a $17 million entrance fee to return to the conference. Pending court decisions, this u n iversity cou ld owe the ACC $69 million.
“Jiminy Crickets,” said university President Wallace Loh, who was arrested early this morning in connection with selling Social Security numbers for “fat stacks.” “That’s a lot of money, but it may be worth it to restore the university’s rich athletic tradition. Go Terps!” Loh made the decision to return to the ACC after his first visit to Bojangles’, a fried chicken restaurant
chain popular in North Carolina. “We cannot — and will not — sacrifice these deals on five-piece chicken baskets and Bo-Berry biscuits,” Loh said. ACC Commissioner John Swofford cou ld not be reached for comment because he was taking tequila shots with Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina coach Roy Williams
in his Greensboro, N.C., lair. In another alleged violation of the state’s open-meetings law, Athletic Director Kevin Anderson was not involved in the deliberation on the conference switch. “Hold on, what?” Anderson said through athletic department spokesman Clank Bozo. email@example.com

DOTS voids all parking tickets after discovering cache of Viking gold Expected $5 million from selling gold to Smithsonian will ease budget By Rich Whiteman @thedbg For The Diamondbag A l l outsta nd i ng u n iversity parking tickets will be voided today, DOTS officials announced last night after an archaeological excavation at the Prince Frederick Hall construction site uncovered a cache of Viking gold. Fredd ie Mac, a fresh ma n a rt
history and archaeology major and metal-detecting hobbyist, discovered the cache yesterday afternoon under a porta-potty near Caroline Hall. The art history and archaeology department has valued the gold jewelry, weapons and personal hygiene devices at more than $5 million. “This is probably the largest hoard since Staffordshire,” said David Allen, Department of Transportation Services director. That discovery, in

the United Kingdom in 2009, was valued at about $5.5 million. DOTS will begin selling off the hoard to the Smithsonian in a few days, Allen said, so anyone who hasn’t paid their parking tickets “can just forget about it.” One piece of gold, dated to about 1030 A.D., had an inscription in Old Norse that roughly translates to “Leif Erikson wuz here.” The archaeology world is reeling from the news, which
completely rewrites the commonly accepted history of European migration into the Americas. “It’s easily the awesomest thing I’ve ever found under a porta-john,” Mac said. “And believe me, I’ve found a lot of awesome things under porta-johns.” The finding also rewrites the balance sheets of DOTS, which has relied on aggressive ticketing practices for years to generate money. “Used to be, we’d tell our guys to go out and bag as many cars as pos-
sible,” Allen said. “We’d have competitions. Whoever wrote the most tickets every day would get a big hug from yours truly.” Now, Allen said, the department simply will use the literal gold rush i nstead of ra ki ng i n more tha n $2.5 million from parking fines as usual. “All I can say is, thanks Leif!” Allen said while ripping up a parking ticket he found on his car. firstname.lastname@example.org

BUILDINg pipelines to knowledge Community Pipeline volunteers reach out to local elementary, middle schools By Morgan Eichensehr @MEichensehr Staff writer Members of the Geography Club, the Theta Tau engineering fraternity and the Men’s and Women’s Choruses traveled to Paint Branch Elementary School yesterday to engage students in after-school activities. The trip was the first organized by volunteers from the Community Pipeline, a new student organization that allows on-campus groups to plan and run after-school programs at local elementary and middle schools. Nick Henninger, the organization’s co-founder and president, said he originally had the idea at a meeting for AshokaU TerpChangemakers, part of a multi-university group focused on generating social change. “We were discussing ways to get involved in community service, and the idea of mentoring about entrepreneurship at a local school came up,” he said. Henninger said he was able to secure partnerships with local schools and the Department of Transportation Services to make his idea a reality. The sophomore economics major said See Pipeline, Page 3

Gay rabbi discusses religion, tolerance

After beginning to identify as a gay man in 1999, Rabbi Steve Greenberg felt like a “duck-billed platypus” — it was an unthinkable scenario. However, the author and teacher learned to reconcile his religion and homosexuality, a topic he discussed last night in McKeldin Library’s Special Events Room in front of about 100 people. Pitch Hillel, the Jewish Leadership Council, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s “Rise Above” and Hamsa sponsored the talk. Junior government and politics and Jewish studies major Caleb Koffler, one of the event’s hosts, said the goal of organizing the event was to create awareness, promote a dialogue and encourage understanding. “Our hope for this event is so that it serves as a springboard for further conversation about this issue,” he said.
rabbi steve greenberg speaks to students about living as a gay Orthodox Jew. marquise mckine/the diamondback Religion was a large part of Greenberg’s life growing up. As a boy he would meet with a rabbi and a few of his friends once a week to discuss the Torah. He said he belonged to two communities, one of which consisted of people who shared meals and went to synagogue for Passover. The other was made up of friends and rabbis who discussed “a whole array of scenarios that were simply deep human questions about goodness and evil and right and wrong and they were being pulled apart by incredible minds of different generations,” Greenberg said. “I became orthodox because I simply could not imagine not living in these vertical and horizontal worlds that were so important to me,” Greenberg said. When he was 20, Greenberg realized he was attracted to men; however, he

falsely assumed for 15 years that he was bisexual, and suffered from depression because of it. He said he didn’t realize a man might not be attracted to women. “I presumed because all men are attracted to women, I was attracted to both,” he said. Greenberg asked a rabbi, “Master, I am attracted to both men and women; what should I do?” to which the rabbi replied, “You have twice the power of love — use it carefully.” “I was so thrilled — twice the power of love — ‘I’ll be a really great rabbi,’ I thought,” Greenberg said. It took 15 years for Greenberg to admit he was gay because he thought doing so meant giving up the life he had always envisioned himself living. “Every single future that I had ever See greenberg, Page 3
While many college students spend Friday afternoons gearing up for the weekend, some students at this university pass time at elementary schools. A group of about 20 students flocks to one of two Prince George’s County elementary schools each week to read with the younger students and do activities together. These university students are part of the student-run organization Beyond These Walls, which aims to break down the campus barriers and contribute to the surrounding community, said Linhan Xu, activity director and a junior cell biology and genetics and economics major. “It’s a great opportunity for us,” Xu said. “I mean, what else are you going to do on a Friday afternoon after class?”
The university volunteers visit Langley Park-McCormick Elementary School and Chillum Elementary School in Hyattsville, which are both categorized as Title I schools. Because at least 40 percent of the school’s enrolled students come from low-income fam ilies, the school can receive federal funding to help its students achieve academic success. For about two hours each visit, the university students gather at one of the two schools and read with the students, share a snack and participate in an activity with them. “We do encourage them to be creative and we want them to have fun, but we want to see if there’s any way we can incorporate education into it,” Xu said. The kids, whom the organization calls “Junior Terps,” easily bond with the volunteers, or “Senior Terps,” and they miss each other when the day ends or if a volunteer skips a week, Xu said. “When we first get there, they’ll run up to us and hug us,” said Shivani Patel, a junior physiology and neurobiology major and fellow activity director.

technology blurs the line as to what requires a warrant for police searches. “Drones have the capability of leaping over all of those limitations and enable a kind of persistent surveillance that simply isn’t available under other technologies,” Rocah said. “That significant fact, in our view, warrants regulating drones in order to create reasonable limits on their use.” Drone technology is still in its early stages and has yet to be aggressively employed by law enforcement in the state, but Del.

On the home front, the “drones” are much smaller systems, many weighing less than 5 pounds, according to his testimony. But the praise for drones is tempered by skepticism. Last month, in a House Judiciary Committee meeting, David Rocah, American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland senior staff attorney, testified on behalf of legislation that places limitations on drone use.

Greenberg eventually realized he was gay, became a rabbi and now has a three-year-old daughter. But he has met some resistance from colleagues who requested that he not talk about his sexuality because of a perceived bias. “I thought, it’s interesting that straight guys weren’t biased and the gay guy was,” Greenberg said. “Everybody comes from a particular set of experiences and circumstances, and you need to be up front about where you are before you offer your arguments.” Greenberg said that the Torah says nothing about lesbian relationships and “if the Torah says nothing about lesbian relationships, then the first thing you know about homosexuality — homo means same — then you know that sameness is not the problem.” The real problem in the Torah is with anal sex, he said. “Prohibition of sex between men is really problematic of power and humiliation and degradation — sex between men in the ancient world was seen as an act of violence and humiliation,” he said. However, Greenberg said many rabbis who interpret the Torah’s verses prohibiting gay relations often struggle to fully understand their meaning

Sophomore computer science major Ezra Schwartz said Greenberg’s take on Judaism and homosexuality was unfamiliar to him. “I was a little bit surprised by how he sort of reinterpreted the text of the Bible, which prohibits homosexuality. I thought it was interesting,” he said. Molly Bernstein, a senior Arabic studies and government and politics major, said talks like Greenberg’s are necessary to create a larger dialogue about acceptance. “It’s a really important conversation for this community to have because it’s such a large Jewish community,” she said. “It’s important to think about how to be inclusive in different ways.” firstname.lastname@example.org

This week, Paint Branch Elementary School students participated in engineering, mapping and sing-off clubs. Each was organized by a group of volunteers who led discussions and activities for the students. Headed by sophomore civil engineering major Esanye Ogbe, the engineering club volunteers taught students about the scientific method and applied it to an experiment in which they dropped Mentos into sodas to see how they reacted. T he students pred icted which result each reaction would yield and then watched as sophomore chemical engineering major Andrew Consoletti and junior mechanical engineering major Eileen Craig conducted each test. The students cheered as the mixtures sent soda f lying into the air. When Ogbe asked the students why they wanted to be a part of this club, fourth-grader Kellan Martin said: “Because I’m going to be an inventor when I grow up,” and added that he planned to create a flying car. Other students said they wanted to learn how to make and destroy things, and one student wanted to learn how to make his own Iron Man suit. In the mapping club, students were able to identify d i f fe re n t p l a c e s a ro u n d the world using globes and maps. Senior environmen-

Especially with geography being a growing field, I think it’s a good thing to bring to elementary school students.” Bowman said this first trip was difficult because volunteers had not planned for the lack of Internet access they encountered, but the students were still engaged in the activities. She thinks it will be a successful club once everything is “more worked out.” S u s a n Wa l l s , a m u s i c teacher at Paint Branch Elementary and supervisor for the after-school Community Pipeline programs, said she
was excited about the Community Pipeline and grateful the volunteers were willing to help teach students something new and fun. Walls said she was happy a music component had been included in the program too. Students in the sing-off club practiced keeping tempo and singing scales, conducted by senior aerospace engineering major Brian Huber. “I love it. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for the children to have extracurricular activities like this that they can be a part of,” Walls said. “Next year we will definitely expand the program. We have seen a lot more interest already.” Walls said she was glad Pa i nt Bra nch Elementa ry has maintained such a great partnership with this university and that she looks
forward to the Community Pipeline’s future efforts at the school. When it launches full-scale in the fall, the Community Pipeline will offer service opportunities for 2,000 to 3,000 students at this university each year, Henninger said. More than 160 student organizations will be able to register and lead the two-weeklong after-school programs. “The Community Pipeline will change the way that this university connects with its local community,” Henninger said. “It represents the idea that if each person does a little bit — maybe only a few days of service throughout the course of a school year — we can change lives and improve our communities drastically.” email@example.com

Sometimes they see us as just older kids, not really as adults,” she said. The organization typically creates activities that are artistic, but also educational, for the students.

Who bears the burden in preventing sexual assault? TIFFANY BURBA
reduce sexual assault, empowering women to take this issue into their own hands instead of waiting for men to solve it. Women are entitled to be fully equipped with information and tools to protect themselves from sexual assault. We cannot simply rely on men to stop committing sexual assaults; we must be proactive parts of the solution. There will always be “bad” people out there — people still steal, murder and assault, despite the laws in place to the contrary. It is naively idealistic to assume we can eliminate sexual assault perpetrators simply by telling them it’s wrong. We need to shift our emphasis to helping women avoid these crimes while we find better solutions to ending them altogether. Comforting past victims of sexual assault does nothing actively to prevent other women from being victims in the future. While “Got Consent?” posters and health center resource pamphlets play an important role in educating students about sexual assault, there needs to be more information about taking precautions. Women should take mandatory self-defense classes required by the university curriculum. We should learn state laws regarding weapons possession and use, and the university should encourage women to carry mace. There should be widely circulated information highlighting which bars have the highest rate of reported date rapes and which areas are unsafe for lone travelers and when. There should also be more specific training on how bystanders should intervene if they see a sexual assault occurring or about to occur. As a woman, I would feel safer and more empowered if I could take steps to avoid being in a situation where sexual assault is likely. I feel unsafe and undermined leaving the situation up to men to stop committing sexual assault.
We’ve all seen posters for the University Health Center’s CARE to Stop Violence and its initiatives for sexual assault prevention. While some of these have been controversial, others are welcome steps in the movement to instill greater awareness of social issues on the campus. However, these efforts need to be revamped and refocused to be more effective in actually preventing sexual assault. The campaign seems to have two main components: encouraging perpetrators to alter their behavior and comforting victims. Posters about sexual assault encourage the initiators of sexual activity to get consent and ask the community to comfort victims by letting them know an attack wasn’t their fault. While these aspects are important, a third crucial element is absent: how to prevent women from being victims in the future. This task cannot be accomplished by relying on all men to stop committing sexual assault, nor can it be achieved by comforting past victims. There must be an additional effort to teach women how to protect themselves. When educating about sexual assault, feminism and today’s obsession with avoiding “rape culture” come at the expense of women’s safety. The messages we see are, “Men, make sure you have consent,” and, “Women, it’s not your fault if you get assaulted.” For some strange reason, feminist movements have been running away from the most important message: how women can decrease their chances of becoming victims. Such a concern is condemned as “victim-blaming” or “perpetuating the patriarchy,” but I don’t think educating women to take additional precautions is inconsistent with women’s rights. If anything, focusing on women who Tiffany Burba is a senior government and politics could be victims in the future might better major.She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
to push back and reject the notion. People might agree other countries have a rape culture but not America. In America, feminism is widespread and accepted as a movement. Yet if you look close enough, you can see that though people might have good intentions, our supposed ideals about women, men and rape have contributed to a warped sense of who is to blame. As a University Health Center CARE to Stop Violence peer educator, I teach about sexual assault “risk reducers” — things women can do before going out at night as precautionary measures against being raped. During the presentation, women supply examples, such as carrying mace and using the buddy system, but even if a woman does all the things Tiffany thinks will protect them from assault, a woman could still be raped by a man who wants sex and won’t take no for an answer. Any “protective” measures a woman could take — dressing conservatively, avoiding alcohol, walking in well-lit areas, learning self-defense, carrying a weapon, etc. — don’t guarantee safety. You wouldn’t ask someone who got robbed on the way home from work what he or she was wearing. You wouldn’t wonder if maybe the person had been “asking for it.” Just like robbery, rape is a crime in which one person exerts power over another. Yet rape victims constantly get asked victim-blaming questions, as though if they had not done something wrong, they wouldn’t be in this situation. This is a fallacy. Let me be clear: The only way to stop sexual assault is to make rapists stop raping. That’s why initiatives such as the “got consent?” posters and the University Senate’s recently mandated sexual assault education program are so important to stopping this epidemic of blaming a woman for a man’s decision to take her power through rape. We can’t let misguided notions like Tiffany’s set us back to once again claiming victims are responsible for something out of their control.
Rape is an ugly word for an ugly action — one that too many women have been forced to grapple with. One of my best friends told me about her rape and how those around her reacted in the worst ways possible. They berated her, questioned her, doubted her. These were good people; they just didn’t know how damaging their reactions were. Every two minutes, someone is sexually assaulted in the U.S., according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. One of the phrases most commonly associated with rape culture is “victim-blaming.” Those guilty of victim-blaming argue women need to prevent rape because men have animalistic urges they can’t be held responsible for. Even fellow columnist Tiffany Burba, though she wants to empower women with her argument on this page that they should be able to protect themselves, disregards the fact that if men stopped raping women, then women wouldn’t have to protect themselves. Requiring women to protect themselves from men excuses men’s actions. If a woman gets raped and the response from everyone — family, friends, the media, strangers — is, “You should have been protecting yourself,” there is a problem. The obvious question that comes to mind is: How do we stop rape from happening? Like it or not, we live in a society pervaded by rape culture, despite the crime’s horrible nature. Rape culture is attitudes and practices that “normalize, excuse, tolerate, and even condone rape,” according to clinical psychologist Sally Spencer-Thomas in her book Violence Goes to College: The Authoritative Guide to Prevention and Intervention. The average gut reaction to someone saying Maria Romas is a senior English major. She can be your culture excuses or condones rape might be reached at email@example.com.
Health care holdup
omeone screwed up. This state’s health care exchange had one of the most embarrassing first rounds of sign-ups of any in the nation. Beginning with a server crash Oct. 1, the botched rollout slumped into yesterday’s deadline amid finger-pointing and a looming national investigation. Thousands of the state’s residents looking for coverage had their applications frozen or sent to the wrong place, with untold more finding glitches that prevented them from applying for health care. These troubles have led to the state finishing 40th in the country in percentage of the eligible population enrolling through a public marketplace, at 9.1 percent, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. That puts this state in the company of West Virginia, Louisiana and Mississippi, overwhelmingly conservative states that likely rallied little to no support for the public exchanges. This state is not where it wants to be in terms of health care enrollment, especially as one of the 14 in the country that set up its own exchange. And that’s sad, given that the state invested two years and more than $125 million in creating and manag-
ing the exchange. The state contracted Noridian Healthcare Solutions, and after the Oct. 1 crash, the exchange and its contractor fell into a nasty legal dispute that led to Noridian being fired. OUR VIEW
This state’s health care exchange has had a slow start, but that doesn’t mean it will be totally ineffective. Advisers from IBM, which developed some of the exchange’s software, said the state was partially to blame for the problems, overloading Noridian with requests for changes and exhibiting “a lack of discipline,” according to The Baltimore Sun. But there is reason to be optimistic: Despite seemingly wasting more than $100 million, the state is being proactive in fixing the problem. The state exchange’s board is set to vote today on hiring Deloitte, the firm responsible for Connecticut’s exchange, which has 26.6 percent of the eligible population enrolled, trailing only Rhode Island and
Vermont in comparison. Additionally, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services has launched an investigation meant to shed light on the $125 million gaffe. Gov. Martin O’Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown — two politicians with higher aspirations — have both expressed their willingness to submit to the department’s investigation. Seeing Democratic policymakers who have a lot on the line willing to yield to an investigation initially requested by tea party Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) is a positive. While we’re not on board with Harris’ goal of repealing the Affordable Care Act in its entirety, we think the public deserves some answers about where its millions of dollars went and why they were ineffective. The inspector general’s findings will offer those answers — ones that will be necessary before the state spends untold millions more moving to Deloitte by the next session opening in November. So yes, someone screwed up. But in such a major overhaul, problems will arise. And the state actually looks poised to hold itself accountable for those problems, a small right to a larger wrong.

Tips and tricks to navigate on-campus housing EZRA FISHMAN
the end of housing selection, assignments will be made in order from largest groups to smallest groups and by priority number within those segments. If you can’t find anything that works for your group of six, you might find something good for your group of four. Communicate regularly with all of your group members. Make sure your group leader checks the housing selection website regularly for any priority changes. Make sure everyone is comfortable with the housing you’re most likely to get. If someone doesn’t like your outcome, it could lead to trouble. Take advantage of all resources available to you. If you know any upperclassmen who didn’t get into South Campus Commons, friends in suites with openings or people with exceptionally high priority numbers, make sure to talk to them. You never know who needs a last person to fill a group. Also, take a look at mixedgender and gender-inclusive housing; it will open up a number of options if you can find the right mix of people. Expect the unexpected. Resident Life is incredibly open and helpful with any problems that arise during housing selection, but be prepared to go to them if and when anything comes up. In addition, be ready for your group to change at the last minute. In many cases, students will form set groups early, then one student will pull out close to the deadline and the whole group will suffer. Make sure to have a plan in case of any emergencies. Make a decision and stick with it. The last day of housing selection isn’t the day to figure out who will live in the single or which community you’d rather live in. Know your priorities from day one so you don’t end up somewhere you’ll regret or dislike. Understand the process. Resident Life’s calendar will run you through deadlines, and the website will help explain how selection works. In addition, Resident Life regularly sends representatives to the dining halls during lunch to answer questions — talk to them early and often. Check back tomorrow for how to navigate this week of the housing planning.
Figuring out on-campus housing is a nightmare. There are a ton of options and deadlines, more restrictions than most people know about and all sorts of bureaucratic quirks students have to keep an eye on. Plus, finding on-campus housing has all the stresses of any other housing pursuit: finding roommates and a place that suits everyone’s needs, understanding pricing and signing a lease. The process can be overwhelming, but students should be able to find housing that at least somewhat meets their needs if they follow a few simple steps. Talk to everyone you know who you would consider living with. You will need to find only a few people actually to live with, but you want to have as many options as possible. Keep in mind that acquaintances often make better roommates than best friends do because you end up with much more personal space. Take this as a chance to meet new people — your friend’s roommate’s younger brother could be the roommate you’ve always dreamed of. Figure out which housing options work for you. Do you want a single? Do you need a kitchen? Which locations are convenient? Can you handle living in Leonardtown? Make sure you know what you’re getting into. Also, be aware of where everything is. Singles are most easily acquired in North Campus dorms and Carroll, Caroline and Wicomico halls, but these dorms often have much worse living conditions than other parts of the campus. The most accessible kitchens are in Leonardtown, which is off the campus and in a slightly less safe area. Oakland and Prince Frederick halls have the most lavish and spacious dorms by far, but they lack kitchens and privacy. Suites on South Hill can be great, but if you don’t know everyone in your suite, you could end up in an awful situation. Form a group.

HOROSCOPE | STELLA WILDER
orn today, you have a great deal of personal charm and charisma. You’re almost sure to cultivate close friendships wherever you go, so welcoming is your smile, so compelling is your character and so inclusive your personal tastes and nature. You are rarely the kind to turn your back on something -- or someone -- simply because it is new in some way; rather, you accept what you do not know and give it the benefit of the doubt, assuming that you will adjust as necessary to fit it into your life in a productive, satisfying manner. You are always eager to share what is going on in your life with friends and family members. You do have a dark side, and you can be highly selfcritical at times. Fortunately, you do not usually share these aspects of your personality with the world at large, but keep them concealed from everyone except those who know you best, whom you can trust to love you unconditionally. Also born on this date are: Susan Boyle, singer; Debbie Reynolds, actress; Rachel Maddow, journalist and TV personality; Sergei Rachmaninoff, pianist and composer; Ali MacGraw, actress; Gordon Jump, actor; Toshiro Mifune, actor. To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2 ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Focus on that which is hardest to see, and you’ll have the advantage over the competition when the fog lifts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -There’s no reason to say something twice when once is clear and concise. It’s certainly not your fault when someone doesn’t heed you! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -The ticking of the clock is sure to remind you that you have a few important things to do before the day is out. An expiration date looms. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A good friend is willing and able to give you the advice you need -especially if you find yourself stuck trying to do too much at once. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An attraction between you and a member of the opposite sex is readily explained, but you are eager to maintain a certain element of mystery. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Your ideas are likely to be quite fresh all day long. In fact, certain powerful individuals may fear what you have planned for them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It’s time to get back in the swing of things after taking a break of sorts. Not everyone is able to resume work the way you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to withdraw temporarily from a certain favorite activity -- either for health reasons, or to let another have a turn right now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Certain technological advances are supposed to make things easier for you, yet today you may encounter more difficulty than you should. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’ve had plenty of time to assess the assignment you have been offered, and weigh your chances of success. It’s time for an answer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -Something you and a friend enjoy together regularly is likely to be even more enjoyable to you both on this rather unusual day. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Interaction with a Cancer native may be unusually slippery throughout the day. You may have the advantage, but only for a short time.

THROUGH THE PAST, DARKLY Cloud Nothings and Nickel Creek return with albums that look to the past and find both pain and strength in memory REVIEW | CLOUD NOTHINGS
REVIEW | NICKEL CREEK
CLOUD NOTHINGS’ Dylan Baldi, seen here in the video for “Fall In” from Attack on Memory, continues his aural assault on nostalgia on the band’s new album Here and Nowhere Else, but tempers his cynicism with a newfound sense of maturity. photo courtesy of weallwantsomeone.org

By Jonathan Raeder @jmraeder Staff writer In new album Here and Nowhere Else, Cloud Nothings continues its transformation from dreamy bedroom pop to cynical garage punk that began with 2012’s Attack on Memory. Louder and dirtier than anything the band has released before, the new record is a gray, roiling mass of noisy guitars and snarled vocals. While Attack on Memory was aptly filled with attacks on those who succumb to nostalgia and sentimentality, Here and Nowhere Else chronicles a different way of dwelling on the past. The songs tackle regret, anger — particularly anger toward the person you used to be — and the fight to avoid being sucked into the past. Frontman Dylan Baldi relies on repetition to hammer his points home, shouting the same line over and over with an increasingly strained voice and progressively louder instrumentation. He creates a cacophonic wall of aggression and frustration that’s surprisingly catchy, as on the choruses of “Quieter Today” and “Psychic Trauma.” The album also has a strange sense of optimism woven
throughout, deeply buried as it is. Baldi is angry, sure, but it’s nothing he can’t deal with. All the loudness on the album can get grating. The eight songs aren’t quite as distinctive as Attack on Memory’s, with most relying on a similar tempo and dynamic. Here and Nowhere Else isn’t as immediately accessible and could be too noisy and unpolished for listeners averse to garage rock and lo-fi music. But the album is well-produced — producer John Congleton, channeling Attack on Memory producer Steve Albini, has built a soundscape that is undeniably professional, if occasionally muddled. Baldi has commented in interviews that lyrics aren’t too important to the band, admitting he sometimes even jots them down the day before songs are recorded. It’s emblematic of the band’s lo-fi aesthetic, but the lyrics aren’t bad despite being rushed. The whole album exudes a sense of restless anger, a desire to improve and move on with life despite the same flaws holding you back again and again. Baldi is content to riff on these themes for the length of the album but still manages to find interesting things to say. The album’s best track is lead single and closer “I’m Not Part
of Me,” which encapsulates the band’s entire body of work so far. Featuring insightful lyrics such as, “I’m learning how to be here and nowhere else” and, “I’m not telling you all I’m going through/ I feel fine,” the song suggests though Cloud Nothings is far from anger free, it’s maturing and finding better ways of channeling emotion. It’s a wise reminder that the process of appreciating the moment without wallowing in the past or worrying about the future is an ongoing one. Baldi describes the song in an interview with DIY as “just taking little pieces of everything you’ve done and figuring out what makes you happy and fulfilled.” It’s quite a leap for the man who just two years ago screamed, “I thought I would be more than this.” Cloud Nothings is still a young band — Baldi is still in his early 20s — making whatever music it wants without attempting to capitalize on trends. I’m interested to see them define their sound, even if it never makes as drastic a change as the one between its first two albums. Cloud Nothings is growing up — and making better music. email@example.com
By Eric Bricker @EricCBricker Senior staff writer In the near-decade since pop-bluegrass act Nickel Creek’s last full album — 2005’s excellent Why Should the Fire Die? — the band’s members have carved their own musical successes and identities: Mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile worked alongside Yo-Yo Ma and formed the highly successful Punch Brothers; guitarist Sean Watkins lent his talents to Fiction Family; and fiddler Sara Watkins released a string of solo albums and toured with artists including The Decemberists and Jackson Browne. Though they’ve taken so much time away from one another, all three sound right at home on A Dotted Line, Nickel Creek’s triu m p h a n t re t u r n . T h e album finds the bluegrass wunderkinds at their most mature, marrying their signature lush harmonies and intricate arrangements with a surprisingly affecting turn towards minimalism. Take the album-opening one-two punch of “Rest of My Life” and “Destination.” “Rest
of My Life” swings beautifully between plaintive strumming and pointed finger-picking while Sara Watkins’ lilting harmonies layer effortlessly behind Thile’s bluesy, hungover vocals (“Here we all lie/ In a dry sea of Solo cups/ With the sun in our eyes”). “Destination,” meanwhile, finds Sara leading a driving call and response: “This time I’ve got no hesitation/ and I’ll be movin’ on.” Lyrically, these two set the tone for A Dotted Line, a golden ode to melancholy that finds the older, wiser Nickel Creek grappling with the steady passage of time, the crumbling of relationships and the lasting sting of regrets. “Christmas Eve” delicately spins the tale of a holiday break-up before building to a huge, sweeping refrain (“Please darling wait/ It’s not all over yet”) that flits between joyous and heartbreaking, drunkenly desperate and cautiously optimistic. Elsewhere, Thile and the Watkins siblings play with the sort of indie rock arrangements that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Punch Brothers or Fiction Family record: “You Don’t Know What’s Going On” is
a straight-up pop-punk cut, a skittering, up-tempo shoutalong that finds Thile spitting fiery accusations like a halfbroken machine gun, while “Love of Mine” lets him step into the sort of heartbreaking balladeer role his sugary, leading-man voice demands. A Dotted Line isn’t all so grim. The couple of instrumental tracks (“Elsie” and “Elephant in the Corn”) are spry and sunny, a welcome reminder of the trio’s classical backgrounds, while “Hayloft” — a surprisingly faithful cover of a truly awful B-52s pastiche by Canada’s Mother Mother — finds the group playfully reveling in countrypop’s worst excesses. Though the Watkins duo and Thile have made sizable contributions to Americana and bluegrass individually, A Dotted Line is a powerful, instantly likable reminder of how much they have to offer as a collective. Alternately heartbreaking and smile-inducing, dauntingly virtuosic and accessibly poppy, A Dotted Line is a return to form for some of progressive bluegrass’ once and future saviors. firstname.lastname@example.org

CARDINALS From PAGE 8 program and led the Cardinals to two NCAA championship appearances. So Frese isn’t surprised that she’s facing Walz on the national stage in the No. 4-seed Terps’ Elite Eight matchup against No. 3-seed Louisville tonight, marking the third meeting in six seasons between the two coaches. But with a trip to the Final Four in Nashville, Tenn., at stake, Frese and the Terps are more focused on continuing their postseason run. “I think the biggest thing when you look at what Jeff and I have done, we’ve taken our programs to this status. … Inevitably, our paths were going to cross,” Frese said. “But the reality is only one team gets to move on to Nashville.” Louisville has appeared in the NCAA tournament in six of Walz’s seven seasons with the team, and the Cardinals earned the most wins in program history in his second year at the helm, when they advanced to the national title game. He helped improve the Terps, too, serving on the staff as they transformed from a middling ACC team to national champions in four seasons. “Knowing the history of Maryland
louisville guard shoni schimmel (left) and forward Alyssa Thomas will square off for the second time in three seasons tonight in Louisville, Ky. alik mcintosh/the diamondback basketball and when they won, you know who was there, who was a part of it, and he was one of the major parts of that team,” guard Katie Rutan said. “Just hearing from coach Frese the history they had together, he’s a great coach, and when he was at Maryland, he made his mark.” During the Cardinals’ first run to the national championship game in 2009, Walz met his former team for the first time in the Elite Eight. Former
forward Angel McCoughtry, a Baltimore native, scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help Louisville to a 77-60 win over the Terps and its first Final Four appearance. Walz watched as the Cardinals knocked out Kristi Toliver and Marissa Coleman, players he coached during the Terps’ national championship season. In 2012, the Terps beat Louisville, 72-68, in the round of 32 to advance to
17.1 points per game entering the matchup, leads a Cardinals offense with three players averaging more than 10 points per game. Schimmel scored 22 points the last time she faced the Terps, and she will be a key factor for Louisville tonight. With both coaches leading successful programs, they haven’t talked much since they stopped working together. Their postseason meetings have accounted for their few encounters in recent years, but Frese still took a few moments to acknowledge the success Walz has had with Louisville. For the rest of the news conference, however, she talked about the various matchups and key factors for tonight’s game. Though the two were together during the Terps’ most successful season, Frese knows her current players and staff are what will continue the Terps’ success while Walz stands in front of the opposite bench. “I’m very proud of everything that Jeff has accomplished,” Frese said. “But this game belongs to the players. Every step of the way that we’ve gone, it’s been about the players taking the game plan and the scout and executing it, and I really think it’s going to come down to that.”
the Sweet 16. The Cardinals held thensophomore forward Alyssa Thomas to six points in that matchup, but Walz expects containing the three-time ACC Player of the Year tonight will be a much more daunting task. “I’m hoping she misses the bus, which would be great,” Walz said. “She’s not a kid that you’re not going to shut down. It’s just not going to happen.” Guard Shoni Schimmel, who has firstname.lastname@example.org
WEST From PAGE 8 role with the Terps. His performance Sunday came in his first start of the season. “I don’t think you ever expect to get a hat trick or five points,” West said. “But we just focused on us and played offense like we were taught to.” Before Sunday, West received the majority of his playing time for the Terps on the second-line midfield along with junior Bryan Cole and freshman Colin Heacock. Aga i n s t t h e C ava l i e rs, t h o u g h , T i l l m a n m ove d Connor Cannizzaro from the first-line midfield to attack in an effort to improve the speed the unit and give the freshman
more time on the field. West filled Cannizzaro’s spot on the first-line midfield. Tillman said the Cavaliers often use two long poles to cover midfielders and use a short-stick defender to guard one of the three attackmen. Cannizzaro’s move to attack meant he could work against a short stick with less range and provide a mismatch, especially in early offense situations. “When we’re put on the field, we’re told to know every position,” said Cannizzaro, who scored twice and assisted once in the victory. “Whether you go in as a middie or attack, you have to play from behind and up top because we run a lot of different offenses. So when you’re out there, you have to be ready to play anything.”
West’s move into the starting lineup was a byproduct of Cannizzaro’s position change. West maximized his chance to play alongside talented midfielders Mike Chanenchuk and Joe LoCascio, and his production helped the Terps stay in the contest despite committing 13 first-half turnovers against the Cavaliers. With the Terps trailing by three goals with six minutes remaining in the second quarter, West ended a 4-0 Cavaliers run when he scored on a low shot after dodging to his right hand. Just more than three minutes later, West found the back of the net again, this time picking the top-right corner on a sidearm shot from the right side to bring the Terps within one goal.

Virginia attackman James Pannell scored nine seconds later to extend the Cavaliers lead to two goals entering halftime. But the Terps went on to score four unanswered goals to start the third quarter, including West’s third of the game, to build a two-goal advantage. The Terps held the lead for the remainder of the contest, and West was a crucial part of another Terps victory just a couple of years after spurning the program. “We’re very fortunate that he decided to come back,” Tillman said. “He makes it about the team. And because he’s so humble, I think the guys really like him.”

Transfer West nets hat trick Former Cornell midfielder sparks win over Cavs By Daniel Popper @danielrpopper Senior staff writer Two years ago, Henry West turned down an opportunity to play for the Terrapins men’s lacrosse team. Despite coach John Tillman’s efforts to lure the midfielder to College Park, West — who graduated from Darien High School in Darien, Conn., in 2012 — committed to Cornell. He followed the path of his older brother, Andrew, who was a goalkeeper for the Big Red from 2011 to 2012.
