MANHATTAN - While Kansas State University is on its way to becoming a Top 50 public research university, its president is being recognized as a leader in higher education.

tany also states, “What a phenomenal way to pass on a Christmas tradition by having young actors and actresses getting involved through arts. It has been a pleasure watching those “Aha!” moments in their eyes when they realize what Ebenezer Scrooge is learning through his journey.” Tickets for the performance can be purchased at the Manhattan Arts Center, 1520 Poyntz Ave, by phone at (785) 537-4420 or online at www. manhattanarts.org. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. The Manhattan Arts Center box office is open Monday through Friday from 12 to 5 pm. For more information on other events at the Manhattan Arts Center, visit our website at http://www. manhattanarts.org. The Manhattan Arts Center is funded in part by the City of Manhattan and Friends of MAC.

Kirk Schulz, Kansas State University president, is receiving the 2012 Chief Executive Leadership Award by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, or CASE. The award recognizes the leadership of a higher education chief executive officer who demonstrates the ability to create a vision and inspire others.

In his first 18 months, Schulz developed K-State 2025, a future vision for Kansas State University as a Top 50 public research university. The plan, which includes metrics and expected outcomes, has been met with excitement from the university and alumni community. Similarly, the Kansas Board of Regents recognized it as a model for reinventing and transforming land-grant institutions.

The award will be presented to Schulz on Dec. 11 at the council’s District V and VI joint conference in Chicago.

The university’s stature has also increased locally, nationally and globally. Schulz is involved in numerous organization and boards, works with the Kansas congressional delegation, the office of the governor and the Kansas Legislature. He also plays a significant role in continuing the momentum for the federal National Bio and AgroDefense Facility, which will be built on campus.

“I was so surprised to learn that I had been nominated for the council’s Chief Executive Leadership Award, and was even more surprised to learn that I had received it,” Schulz said. “According to the selection committee’s comments, they were thoroughly impressed with the initiatives started at Kansas State University and the strides we’ve made since I joined in 2009. Committee members were also enthused by the comprehensive K-State 2025 plan that will elevate Kansas State to a Top 50 public research university by 2025.”

Schulz is recognized as an effective leader in the higher education community. This was especially evident when the Big 12 Conference was facing significant challenges in 2011, Bradley said. Schulz was placed in a leadership role to develop a strategy to stabilize the conference, select new leadership and move the conference forward. His involvement and the results were met with many accolades across the nation.

According to the criteria used by the selection committee, Chief Executive Leadership Award recipients have established a positive image for the institution; increased the institution’s stature in the community; encouraged innovation among employees; and actively supported advancement. “In less than four years at the helm, Kirk Schulz has made a significant impact on the university, building on and even surpassing accomplishments made by prior presidents with decades of experience in the position,” said Kent Bradley, K-State Alumni Association board chairman. “It’s obvious that he is passionate about Kansas State University and gives tirelessly to actively support the advancement of the university.” On behalf of the K-State Alumni Association, Bradley nominated Schulz for the award with a letter highlighting some of his accomplishments.

O

Shortly after arriving at Kansas State University, Schulz began unifying the various communications offices across campus. The strategy, One K-State, One Voice, brands the

l son’s

To further strengthen and unify the university, Schulz -- a consummate communicator -- invests countless hours visiting with students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, community leaders, reporters, industry leaders, elected officials and government leaders to share university updates and solicit feedback and comments. He often shares this feedback to his thousands of Twitter followers.

Schulz began his position as the university’s 13th president in 2009, when the nation was experiencing one of its most difficult economies in history. Since then, he has also overseen record student enrollment every year; the opening of a new graduate-level campus in Olathe; a new era of athletics transparency that has fueled donor resurgence and doubled athletics contributions in three years; a record $137 million in research funding brought in by faculty in fiscal year 20112012; the opening of a recruitment office in Vietnam; the start of academic and research initiatives with Australia; three consecutive years of record gift giving to the Kansas State University Foundation; the recruitment of high-profile faculty and staff, including the first National Academy of Sciences member at the university; the continuation of the K-State Alumni Association’s ranking, with nearly 39,000 members, as No. 1 in the Big 12 for percentage of graduates who are members; and represents the Big 12 Conference on the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Board of Directors.

“President Schulz has had an enormous effect on Kansas State University in a very short period of time,” Bradley said. “Those of us who have had Edwin C. Olson Sr. the opportunity to work with him have witnessed firsthand 1214 B. Moro his incredible leadership. At the Manhattan, KS 66502 core, he is successful in large because he is sincere, he 785-539-8571 part has integrity, he cares and he www.olsonsshoes.com genuinely wants the best for the and its stakeholdolsons@kansas.net university ers.

MANHATTAN - The Manhattan Arts Center welcomes “A Christmas Carol” to the MAC stage December 7 & 8 at 7 pm and December 9 at 2 pm. This performance is generously sponsored byYorgensen-Meloan-Londeen Funeral Home, Community First National Bank and The Manhattan Noon Optimist Club. The Christmas classic by Charles Dickens follows the heart-warming story of the grumpy old curmudgeon named Scrooge, the precious and endearing Tiny Tim, and three very persistent ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. “A Christmas Carol” has been adapted for this performance by Sally Bailey, Director of K-State’s Drama Therapy program. The musical adaptation will be performed by local students in grades 3-8 and directed by Brittany Burr, a graduate student in Drama Therapy at K-State. Alyssa Frey, an alumnus of previous A Christmas Carol productions assistant directs this fun youth performance. Brittany Burr comments that she is “proud to have A Christmas Carol be the first production she is directing since moving here from Maryland to attend graduate school.” Brit-

Ultimate Collaboration Winter dance 2012 jimbo Ivy

When the Theatre, Dance and Music Departments of Kansas State University all finally merged this summer, I really didn’t expect a lot to change, to be honest. Boy, have I been wrong. In the past three months, I have seen more crossover, more energy, more exchange between the seemingly joined at the heart sections of the new School than during my years as a Theatre major during the SCTD days, (Speech, Communication, Theatre and Dance). And this week’s devotional from the new School, WinterDance 2012, is no exception, while itself being exceptional. The robust program begins with a traditional West African dance, handpercussion onstage, with Program Coordinator Neil Dunn front and center leading the musicians. Dunn is great example of the crossover in the new School, as he teaches dancers and musicians alike with courses in Rhythmic Notation for Dancers, Composition 1 for Dancers, Dance and Technology, West African Music, and Applied Percussion, as well as coaching percussion ensembles. In vibrant green flashes, the circle of dancers wove within and without, each dancer approximating the same movements, but with the face to face variations that one would find in a group of West Africans dancing, rather than a professional ensemble. Equally impressive and enjoyable was the variety in each face and body; this was no troupe of identical ballerinas, but a cornucopia of shapes and sizes, each with differing frames and angles lent to the whirling performance. Nichols responded well to the feel of many feet on the stage, warming the room with a sound and sense in which one could almost feel an equatorial night around them. And then, something very different. David Ollingnton’s “Challenge and Conformity” set to KSU Music’s own Dr. Craig Weston’s “Study of Texture No. 1” and “Aix”. Another excellent pairing of what our School has to offer, this began with stark figures in red and black taking shape from the darkness as not music but textural sounds filled the space. A distinct

martial feeling took hold at first, without musical rhythm, the bodies of the dancers sprang from shape to shape like calligraphic shapes, and into poses found in Tai Chi exercise. When all but two of the dancers disappear, a more...human thing begins. The shapes change to organic and indeed intertwine in impressive feats of human balance, agility, but also something incredibly intimate. Through variation between structured, group movements in conjunction and the isolated (and later incorporated) contact improvisation in duet (if my Dance Appreciation class isn’t failing me) this piece conveys the theme quite effortlessly, while being a beautiful and impressive feat in and of itself. The next piece, I would describe as a palate cleanser. “The Hat That...” again by David Ollington, feature a single performer, Kyle Myers, as a bit of a fool. A clown. A crackup. Upon finding a musical hat that imbues his lower limbs with “Improvisation” by renown ballet pianist Josu Gallastegui, he fumbles and bumbles and prats for us, complete with wilting flower in his breast pocket. For an actor as verbally expressive as Myers, it’s fun to see him struck silent, with only his practically bulging eyes to communicate his disbelief and incredulity. A super fun piece; a guffaw and a half. And that nice slice of ginger before the meal that was “Moonlight and the Butterflies” and “Unintended Consequences”. “Moonlight and the Butterflies” begins with a single female dancer onstage, and progresses a rhythmic and visual

While the content is fairly loaded and specific, the performance is enjoyable at any reading level, as the mixture of styles and images plays across the space. And that’s only the first act! We won’t spoil the second, but needless to say, WinterDance 2012 has it all from jazz to tap to ballet, modern, traditional and abstract!

presentation that played for the most part with the dancers reacting to chords and notes from the music, also titled “Moonlight and the Butterflies”. The dancers do not touch, but are drawn towards and then repelled from each other, arching, almost colliding and then off in another direction. The effect is at once lonely and lovely; toward characters compelled by some notes, but drawn away by others.

The New Adventures of Arsene Lupin The case of Mistaken Importance Michael Shoemaker

At the Chateau de Versailles Museum in Paris, France, Marie Dupont spent her afternoons guiding tourists through the rooms of the former royal palace. Rooms once occupied by the kings and queens of France now staged with displays for onlookers to gaze at. She enjoyed her job at the museum, having been a history student at university the year prior. With this experience, Marie Dupont found herself fascinated with the elegant furniture and ornate objects that decorated each corridor and chamber. Paintings of royalty spanning centuries adorned the walls and plush chairs surrounded tables of the finest wood. To her this place was magical. It was early Monday morning when Marie Dupont arrived at the Chateau de Versailles for her shift. It was a bit noisier than usual with the museum staff rumbling around in clusters and talking amongst one another. “What’s going on?” Marie Dupont asked poignantly of her co-worker Albert Thomas. Albert was fairly new to the Chateau de Versailles. He had begun working there close to three months. He was a quiet gentleman, however, always polite. “It seems that we have a meeting with the museum director,” Albert said. “Something urgent has happened.” “What happened?” Marie asked. “I don’t know, I guess we will find out,” Albert replied. They conversed sparingly as they walked into the conference room. They found the museum director sitting at the head of a long table with a large number of other employees crowded around it, listening intently. “Quiet down, please,” the director demanded his audience. “This is very important, I need all of your undivided attention for what I am about to tell you.” The room succumbed to a deathly silence as all eyes honed in on the man in the chair. “This morning when I arrived in my office, I received a very disturbing voicemail from a gentleman whom I am sure

you have all heard of,” the director said. “For reasons unknown to myself, Arséne Lupin has sent a message to me that he intends to steal Marie Antoinette’s famed Book of Hours while it is on display at the Chateau de Versailles this Wednesday,” he continued. “But director, how does he plan to break through such foolproof security?” Albert interjected. “It was not made clear exactly how,” the director replied. “However, Lupin is notorious for getting what he wants. This is why we are employing full time the commissary of police to guard the queen’s Book of Hours the rest of the week.” The air hissed as people began whispering with each other about this news.”. “I think that is just terrible that someone would want to take such a precious and timeless artifact from the public,” Marie said to Albert quietly. “Some men only desire for themselves,” Albert replied. “That is what is wrong with society.” A half an hour had passed before the director finished speaking to his museum employees. In the days to follow, security was heightened with police guarding each door and entrance. The parameter of the building was surrounded by detectives around the clock. Nobody entering or exiting the building went unnoticed. The following morning the museum director phoned to the Prefecture of Police. “Hello! . . . I’m Mr. Barnette . . . Chateau de Versailles . . . That’s right. . . . Mademoiselle, would you please put me on to the Prefecture of Police . . . the detective department . . . I know the number . . . one second . . . Ah, here it is! Number 822.48. . . . I’ll hold the line.” After he waited a few moments, Detective-sergeant Gourel came on the line. “Yes detective, I would like to arrange a meeting with you this afternoon… yes I understand… yes the detectives have been here since yesterday evening… around 1:00pm would be fine… I look forward to it.”

OPINION

WWW.THEHYPEWEEKLY.COM

The Electorate has spoken, and the lawyers have won Before Tuesday the 6th, in about every scientific way that people who love numbers measure these things, our country hated the job performance of its government. The time had finally come to make some changes. Weary of months of the mudslinging, we the people, the ultimate arbiters of power, would finally make our voices heard. So A) what did we change, and B) what did we say? What we changed was (drum roll please) . . . nothing. The presidency remained the same. Control of the Senate and House remained as-is. State governorships hardly budged. A few state houses around the country look to have flipped

control, but about as many in one way as in another. Yup, we sure showed ‘em. We’re mad and we’re not gonna take it anymore. They got a stern reminder of who’s the boss. Now, all sarcasm aside, shame on those of you who didn’t vote but who had the right to and could have. Would you have made a significant difference? Maybe or maybe not, but that’s not the point. I don’t know why we even bother to pretend that we are a government of the people if the people don’t ALL exercise their right. If you did not vote, the answer to my second question is the same as the first. What did you say? (No drum roll for you) . . . nothing. Please, for the next four years, do the honorable thing and keep silent. Listen, learn, and vote next time, then complain. We must still take up the question of what did the millions of Americans who actually voted say when we cast our ballots? We said this: let the lawyers rule over us. Let’s retrace a little history so that we can put this into context. Our Founding Fathers did something rather brilliant. They risked the entire future and prosperity of this United States of America on what they hoped would be a strong, independent, educated, industrious, moral, and majority middle class. They recognized that royalty was too unpredictable. Many kings and queens were tyrants. Concerned only for their own power and their crony friends, they impoverished the nation to enrich their crowns. But the Fathers also recognized that a lack of commonly shared prosperity and no protections on ownership of property (in

NOVEMBER 29, 2012

A great piece of opinion by Jeff Koenig other words, a land of mostly peasants) would lead to persistent instability and bloody popular uprisings among the masses every time they felt like they had nothing left to lose. Our Fathers knew that cronyism and populism are both equally and mutually destructive. Either and/or both end in corruption, more poverty, the ineffectiveness of any self-correcting moral framework and, ultimately, national failure. Europeans had, for centuries, been caught between the gauntlet of powerful monarchies and a corrupt Catholic church. By the 18th century, the whispers of thoughts were beginning that would lead to the populist wildfire of European revolutions around 1848. For the middle-income merchant/citizens of the time, it is hard to conclude whose rule placed them and their families more in harm’s way. Thus, the authors of our constitution tried to strike a balance. As I touched upon in my article here last month, these authors attempted to balance liberty and power with the three branches of government and a representative Republic form of democracy. But a deeper point that is often missed in today’s social science classrooms is the fact that most of that representative power would be placed and kept-inplace within an economically free middle class. Only could a large, majority middle class keep the wealth of a few ultra-rich families from re-creating a new class of royalty. Only could a middle-class, supported by free enterprise and laws that protected private property and business investment from government interference, become the majority class of the population. Only could a middle class, a status attainable by anyone willing to learn and work, limit the size and burden to society of the poor which the Founding Fathers expected to be best helped by the churches. (You see, the proper role of the church is to rescue, not rule.) Their solution was not an overnight remedy. It took more than 100 years to stitch and cement the Union together while facing several trials that almost destroyed their work. But now, since WWII, the United States has enjoyed unprecedented prosperity in world history. What makes it so unique is how widely it has been shared across the entire population. So widely, in fact, that its economy has overflowed and influenced the upward prosperity of the rest of the world via our trading partners. What antagonists to American Exceptionalism fail to grasp is that if the U.S. were removed from history so far, all other factors being equal, the whole world would today be

poorer than it is and wealth would be far more concentrated among far fewer individuals, just like before. Because of America and the rise of a very large, industrious, and wealthy American middle class, rise was given to a middle class around the world that has added wealth and self-determination to the lives of countless people that have never even stepped foot here. Why should we apologize for that? But, there is a darkness brewing here, which threatens not only us but the progress that has been made around the rest of the world as well. This darkness did not start here, though. It never really left, it has just been lurking and waiting to re-emerge. It is the leftover vestiges of the old world – one where most people gavein and felt it was easier to be ruled rather than do the harder work of ruling oneself. It is the same darkness that has for centuries gripped and still grips today much of the Middle East, China, Africa and South America; that was pushed back in Soviet Russia but has been retaking ground strongly there. It once ruled Europe completely and millions perished fighting multiple bloody wars to eradicate it, but in today’s economic crisis there, it is sweeping through with speed. Continue reading at:

THIS WEEK IN MHK... Monday Through Friday 9AM-5PM

Ongoing Attractions Only The Best Strecker-Nelson Gallery An exhibit of paintings and sculpture with a name that says it all. Featuring the works of over 40 artists, stop in and take in Only the Best.

Goodnight Moon: Selections from the Permanent Collection Marianna Kistler Beach Museum Of Art From starlit staircases and moon glow to glowing sparklers and carnival lights, this exhibition explores the many facets of night. The exhibition topic was chosen to compliment “Dream Big,” the theme for the Kansas Library Association summer reading program. The selections include idyllic moonlit scenes by beloved Kansas artists Birger Sandzen and John Steuart Curry and more conceptual pieces like Jeff Mongrain’s “An Evening’s Breath,” a clay pillow which holds exactly the amount of moisture exhaled during a night’s sleep. Contemporary images of night include views of porches, airports and highways lit by lights.

Inadvertent Arson: Paintings and Drawings by Patrick Duegaw Beach Museum of Art Patrick Duegaw, K-State alumnus and founding member of Wichita’s Fisch Haus artist cooperative, presents the latest installment of his ongoing “Painted Theater Project.” Conceived as a theatrical performance, Duegaw’s “Inadvertent Arson” incorporates painted portraits, props, and sets as surrogates for living actors, three-dimensional objects, and a stage. Action is implied instead of performed, and a dialogue appears in the form of artist-generated text that accompanies each portrait.

Wrap It Up 2012: Art Exhibit and Sale Manhattan Arts Center Wrap It Up includes dozens of participating artists; most arefrom the Manhattan area, with several coming from various locations all over the Midwest. Wrap It Up features work ranging from masks, jewelry glass, silver, beaded, stained glass, prints, watercolors and drawings, to knitted items, functional pottery, ceramic sculpture, baskets, scarves, glass, photographs, turned wooden sculpture, bowls, tiles, and more. All of the artwork is for sale. The exhibit showcases high quality, affordable art for the gift-giving season under $500 price range.

FORCES: The Shaping of Manhattan, Fort Riley and Kansas State University Flint Hills Discovery Center This exhibit is a partnership between the Riley County Historical Museum; the U.S. Cavalry Museum, Fort Riley; Conservation and Restoration Branch, Fort Riley; the Costume and Textile Museum, KSU; and the KSU archives. The exhibit explores the period between 1853 and 1914: our pioneer beginnings, the transition to building a community, and growth into the 20th century.

SPORTS

mumbling softly like steven seagal with:

Chris hancock

George wame matthews First of all, you’ve got to hand it to the Baylor Bears, they played a hell of a game. Unfortunately, Kansas State was not able to hold off the Bears and lost their spot as the #1 ranked team in the BCS. That honor now falls to Notre Dame who completed their undefeated season this past Saturday by beating the University of Southern California. With the Fighting Irish’s win, and K-State’s loss, Notre Dame has secured their spot in the national championship game where they will play the winner of the Alabama-Georgia SEC championship game. All is not lost for KSU, however, if the Wildcats can defeat Texas, then they will win the Big 12 and be guaranteed a spot in one of the other three BCS bowl games (either Fiesta, Sugar, or Orange). But enough about all that, at the end of my previous article I promised you more on the firing of Mike Brown by the ever fickle Los Angeles Lakers. Mike Brown’s short lived tenure with the Lakers began back in the summer of 2011. The Lakers had just been swept out of the second round of the playoffs by the Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers long time coach Phil Jackson, who had been dealing with health issues all season, chose to retire from coaching at that time. With Jackson’s retirement, all eyes now turned to Los Angeles to see who the Lakers would hire to replace the coach with the highest winning percentage in the history of the NBA. The LA job was seen by many to be a dream job for a coach. Los Angeles boasted a talented roster lead by Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Kobe Bryant, one of the all time greatest basketball players of all time. In addition to its stellar roster, LA’s management (led by Dr. Jerry Buss) was not afraid to spend money and make big splashes in the free agent market to improve itself. In short, it is rare that a coaching position will open up on an established team with an ownership that is committed to doing what it takes to win. There is a dark side to coaching basketball in Los Angles, however. The Lakers are an organization which is accustomed to success; anything less than a spot in the finals is considered a disappointment. Just ask former Lakers coach Rudy Tomjanovich. The end of the 2010-11 season was not the first time Phil Jackson had retired from

coaching; it wasn’t even the first time he had retired from coaching the Lakers. Jackson initially retired from coaching in 1998 after he won his 6th NBA championship with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. After only a year away from the game, Jackson made it known that he was interested in coaching again and was subsequently hired by the Lakers for the 1999-2000 season. After winning an additional three championships with the Lakers, Jackson retired for a second time after the 2003-04 season which saw the Lakers make it to the finals as heavy favorites, only to lose to the Detroit Pis-

...ugh. tons four games to one. It was at this time that the Lakers hired Rudy Tomjanovich to take Jackson’s place. Tomjanovich lasted all of 41 games, however, before he retired for “health reasons.” I put that in quotations because many people suspect that Tomjanovich could not handle the pressure of being responsible for a Lakers team that was underperforming (by the ungodly high standards of Los Angeles basketball). The following season (2004-05), Phil Jackson unretired for a second time and returned to the Lakers. He would go on to lead the team back to the finals four years in a row starting in 2008 (where they lost to the Boston Celtics), 2009 (where they beat the Orlando Magic earning Jackson his record setting 10th championship), 2010 (where they beat the Boston Celtics) and 2011 (where they lost to the Dallas Mavericks). To say that Rudy Tomjanovich and Mike Brown had big shoes to fill would be an understatement at best. Many people were surprised by the hiring of Mike Brown as the Lakers head coach. Both Phil Jackson and Rudy Tomjanovich were offense oriented coaches. Mike Brown was known as a defensive specialist when it came to coaching. Brown had his fair share of successes as a coach. He helped to turn around one of the worst teams in the league, the Cleveland Cavaliers (admittedly with lots of help from LeBron James) and lead them to the 2007 NBA finals (where they lost to my beloved San Antonio Spurs). But Brown was able to achieve his success by implementing stout defenses, something that the Lakers were not known for as a team. In spite of this, Brown did have success with the Lakers in his first season coaching the team. He led the Lakers to the second round where they were defeated by the Oklahoma City Thunder (the team that would go on to win the Western Conference, but lose in the finals to the Miami Heat). But after starting this season off with a dismal one and four record after having lost all eight preseason games, the Lakers management felt that they’d had enough and unceremoniously fired Brown. I for one do not think that Mike Brown was given a fair chance by the Lakers, but what do I know, I’m just a sports writer.

Texas(8-3) @ KSU(10-1) – The game that defines the season rests in front of us. A good but not great Texas team stands between the Wildcats and their destination of Big XII champions. Lockett having an extra week to rest his ankle sure seems promising. So does the concept of having an extra week to prepare for a Texas team coming off a loss to TCU, whom KSU has already beaten. The defense needs to step up against a physical offense in Texas, and I believe after the embarrassment against Baylor they will have a lot to prove. Final Prediction – KSU wins 48-35 OU(9-2) @ TCU (7-4) – I am torn on this one. OU has been a strong team all year but does have a few small cracks. TCU has been a tough out for anyone and is finally settling in with an identity as a defense-minded team that is both fast and strong, as was highlighted by their efforts against KSU and Texas. Landry Jones has proven to be succeptible to mistakes and poor play when consistently pressured, and I believe TCU can do just that. Final Prediction – Big gamble here – TCU wins 28-24 OSU(7-4) @ Baylor(6-5) – Baylor has had two straight monumental wins, the first being of more significance, and is bowl eligible again due to these wins. They now have a winning record and a bit of a swagger about them. Oklahoma State may be a bit deflated after losing in OT to OU, but if a loss could be a positive, it would be this loss. They went blow-for-blow with OU to the bitter end. I think Clint Chelf and co. will do the same against Baylor, except Baylor isn’t as strong as OU and will struggle to withstand it. Final Prediction – OSU wins 45-41 WVU(6-5) @ KU(1-10) – KU has been dismal all year, with only flashes of hope coming in a select few games they managed to keep close, whether for an entire game or just for a half. They are the only team in the conference that is not bowl eligible and have a long way to go to catch up to the pack. WVU has had its own share of disappointments this year, as they were hoping to contend for the Big XII crown but fell on their face with a 5-game losing streak as their flaws were exposed. In the disappointment bowl, I believe WVU has less issues than KU. Final Prediction – WVU wins 42-17 (per Curtis D.) This is my last week of predictions until the bowl games are announced. It has been a fun and interesting year, and I look forward to seeing how it ends. Last week’s record - 3-1 Season record - 21-8

NOVEMBER 29, 2012

And it has ended. Not KSU’s wonderful season per se, but their championship hopes. I knew K-State needed to be worried about Baylor, and this was why. Now KSU still needs to pick their chins up and play a good one against Texas or the season may really unravel, as a loss and an OU win would cause the ‘Cats to not even win the Big XII and possibly even miss a BCS bowl of Kent State fills one of the slots. That’s scary territory. So are these picks….

hype

movies by marcus from action to cut with marcus Jay Safety Not Guaranteed is one of those movies that builds itself on a completely simple premise, and lets its story develop so subtly, that you can’t help being surprised by the time it reaches its end. This isn’t one of those mumblecore movies that is wrapped in hipster cynicism; it’s completely genuine, which is a nice change of pace for this type of film. Darius Britt (Aubrey Plaza) is a recent college graduate who works as an intern at a Seattle magazine. People around her think she’s depressed, and she might be, but she never lets anyone close enough for a determination to be made. At a magazine story pitch session, hotshot writer Jeff (Jake Johnson) pitches a story about a classified ad he read in a local newspaper. The ad reads as follows: WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You’ll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED Jeff proposes that he and two interns take a trip to Ocean View, Washington, and track down the writer of the ad. Jeff has ulterior motives in taking this trip, wanting to track down an old girlfriend being chief among them. Jeff takes Darius and another intern named Arnau (Karan Soni) with him on this trip. On arriving in Ocean View, the trio stakes out the P.O. box associated with the classified ad, and eventually traces the ad to a grocery store employee named Kenneth Calloway (Mark Duplass). Jeff approaches Kenneth under the guise of wanting to be his time travel partner, but when this fails, Jeff sends Darius in as Kenneth’s prospective partner.

Kenneth is more receptive to Darius, and begins training her for their trip back in time. Along the way, Darius starts to have real feelings for Kenneth, and learns about his motives for wanting to go back in time. It also appears as if government agents are following Kenneth, and that he might not be mentally disturbed. Meanwhile, Jeff tracks down his old girlfriend and begins to have a change of heart in his approach to relationships. The central performances by Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass are the key to Safety Not Guaranteed. This isn’t a contrived movie relationship like so many others; sure, it’s based on a lie, but the lie doesn’t build to outrageous proportions. Plaza and Duplass have a chemistry that goes beyond normal Hollywood romantic standards. These are two people who need each other, not just romantically, but because they’ve both been similarly damaged by life. Director Colin Trevorrow wisely avoids the pitfalls of many time travel movies by keeping it mostly offscreen, until a key point. Trevorrow and director of photography Benjamin Kasulke use lots of naturalistic lighting, which keeps the images from overburdening the simple narrative. The biggest misstep is the mishandling

safety not guaranteed Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, and Jake Johnson Written by: Derek Connolly Directed by Colin Trevorrow

of Jeff’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend; these scenes kind of build up to nothing. Also, the Arnau character is pretty much a walking stereotype. Overall, this is a really good film, however; a romantic comedy of sorts, albeit without many of the stock situations usually found in these types of films. 11/7/12

THIS IS A REAL AD Something is wrong with our culture

question

answer

I was hanging out with my ex-boyfriend (we were contemplating getting back together, though I had some reservations). He asked me “do you want to have sex?” and I said “no.” He said again, “let’s have sex” and I again said “no.” He asked “can I have a blow-job then?” and I said “no.” I did not want to have sex right then and said “no” to communicate this to him. However, he removed my pants and began to have sex with me anyway. I was shocked and did not know what to do, so I laid there. Afterwards, I was extremely quiet for a moment and then I became very, very angry. My ex said that I could have put my clothes on and left if I had wanted to and that I needed to take responsibility. Because I didn’t scream and try to hit him, was what he did to me rape?

YES. Yes, this was rape. Rape is defined as “the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse; an act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person” (dictionary.com). It is still considered rape even if you did not physically fight back (http://www.healthyplace.com/abuse/rape/ what-is-rape-was-i-raped). According to laws at both the national and state level, rape is the act of sexual intercourse without consent (http:// legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/rape). Because you said “no,” you made it clear you were not consenting to having sex. Because your P.O.S. ex did that without your consent, this makes him a rapist. Rape is a felony and in the state of Kansas, can result in up to $300,000 fine and/or up to about 14 years in prison

really restrictive. Reputedly Art Donovan, the NFL Hall of Fame tackle, existed (and maybe still does?) on a diet of cold cuts and Schlitz. My son is almost as limiting, though his drink of choice is Dr. Pepper. It used to be that the only cooked vegetables I would eat were green and wax beans, peas and corn. (NOT creamed corn or peas.) Well, I suspect many of you know the drill. It can run all the way from distaste to genuine up-chuck.

frank siegle My wife brought home from the Manhattan library a rather tasty book she thought I might like: Suffering Succotash by Stephanie V. W. Lucianovic. The subtitle is: “A picky eater’s quest to understand why we hate the foods we hate.” Well, my wife, as usual, was right on. I am a picky eater. Well, not as much as I used to be, but Ms. Lucianovic covers that subject as well. She explores the subject of which she claims to be a representative with wry humor and considerable research. She explores various likely reasons for people being picky eaters: genetics, psychological resistences, bad experiences, stress, odor sensitivity, texture repulsion. Any and all could be involved. Whatever the case, “pickies” are looked down upon by “foodies.” (What’s wrong with _________ or ____________ or ___________________? It’s all good food. ) Is it all in your head?

Dear Hype, Hello. I enjoy your Question and Answer column that appears in The Hype Weekly every so often; unfortunately I have a very serious question for you which needs an answer.

WWW.THEHYPEWEEKLY.COM

Ask The Hype!

(http://www.crimeandpunishment.net/KS/ ks.html). Since you said to your ex several times that you did not want to have sex and he ignored your desires, it is not very likely that had you not been so shell-shocked he would have let you get up and leave. The fact of the matter is that it is not your responsibility to do that; you are only responsible for saying if you wanted to have sex, which you made abundantly clear that you did

not want. Your ex decided that what he wanted was more important than what you desired for your own body, which belongs to you and no one else. I hope that he reads this article and realizes that what he did was wrong. That a woman has the right to say no to sex and she does not have to give an explanation or continue to defend her decision. When a woman says no, it does not mean to ignore her and rape her. NO MEANS NO.

with friends, I embarrassed totally when the waiter wanted to know if I wanted parmesan shredded over my spaghetti and I took one whiff and exclaimed something to the effect of “Ewwww! That smells like vomit!” Maybe your mother was a genuinely terrible cook or eating was full of stress because your family argued loudly or you were nervous eating in the school cafeteria because there were so many kids and noise around. Maybe one is a neat freak and it’s upsetting if any food touches the other or gets mixed up in your mouth with some other. Perhaps it’s because pickiness can be a survival device and you may retain more of it than others. The point is that these are all pretty natural reasons and no reason for ridicule. Some times we get less picky over time. And, when you

come right down to it, even foodies who claim to eat any and everything may have pickiness too. Perhaps it’s the doneness of your steak. Maybe your taste in coffee. Could be how apple pie is spiced. In short, it’s a spectrum. Perhaps one’s pickiness may be one of discernment. Ketchup just ruins a good meatloaf. One with no bit of pickiness could be in real danger. Maybe that mushroom isn’t the kind you ought to eat. Whatever the case, Lucianovic’s message is “Don’t be ashamed. You are who you are and, unless you can’t stand all food and drink, it’s all good.”
