MANHATTAN -- Racers, start your drills.

The games will showcase vehicles built by teams of students in ME 101, Intro to Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering. The competition features 35 teams made up of 250 freshmen. The teams will be showing off vehicles they have designed and built that are powered by cordless drills. Students have built/modified bikes, trikes, scooters, skateboards and go-carts for this project Opening ceremonies start at 9 a.m. and feature a parade with the 35 vehicles in the event. They will be driven or ridden by

“MNE Cordless Drill Games event was a class project assignment to get students to start thinking about the design process, team activities, and mechanical systems,” said Greg Spaulding, assistant professor in the department of mechanical engineering. “I will continue with this project annually, but I will create slight modifications so that future students can’t just use a vehicle from the previous years.”

Iron plays a key role in metabolism, leading bacteria and animals to battle each other to obtain it. Klebba’s team found that E. coli must acquire iron from the host to establish a foothold and colonize the gut -- a concept that was often debated by scientists.

Battling bacteria: Research shows iron’s importance in infection, suggests new therapies MANHATTAN -- A Kansas State University research team has resolved a 40-yearold debate on the role of iron acquisition in bacterial invasion of animal tissues. The collaborative research -led by Phillip Klebba, professor and head of the department of biochemistry -- clarifies how microorganisms colonize animal hosts and how scientists may block them from doing so. The findings suggest new approaches against bacterial disease and new strategies for antibiotic development.

“For years it was theorized that iron is a focal point of bacterial pathogenesis and infectious disease because animals constantly defend the iron in their bodies,” Klebba said. “Animal proteins bind iron and prevent microorganisms from obtaining it. This is called nutritional immunity, and it’s a strategy of the host defense system to minimize bacterial growth. But successful pathogens overcome nutritional immunity and get the iron.”

of iron in infection, because here we created the correct combination of mutations to study the problem,” Klebba said. Enteric bacteria have so many iron transport systems that it’s difficult to eliminate them all. For example, E. coli has at least eight iron acquisition systems. “These transporters are redundant because iron is essential,” Klebba said. “Bacteria are resilient. If one system is blocked, then another one takes over.” These findings suggest strategies to block microorganisms from creating diseases in animals and humans, including the potential for antibiotic development and for therapeutic antibodies. “It gives us insight,” Klebba said. “Now we know that iron deprivation protects against disease, but we must be comprehensive and inhibit multiple systems to completely shut down the microorganisms’ ability to obtain the metal.” The researchers are using their findings to isolate antibodies that block bacterial iron uptake. This may help animals and humans defend themselves against microbial diseases.

Varsity Donuts 704 N. Manhattan Ave. (785)539-7654 The first time I went to Varsity Donuts, I was on a simple mission: purchase and consume one (singular, solitary, lone, not plural) maple bacon donut. I needed to know what all the fuss was about. I walked out with a half dozen donut creations I just couldn’t say no to, and have been addicted ever since. Maple bacon, S’mores, Fruity Pebbles, Flat Tire…seriously, to list all of the unique and delicious pastries would overload your sensory inputs, and to top it off they carry a great variety of traditional favorites done to perfection. Suffice it to say, if you’re looking to make everyone in the office happy, drop in with a dozen of these bad boys and you’ll probably be voted employee of the month. If a quick snack and a pick-me-up is more your speed, go in grab a hunk of heaven and wash it down with a $1 cup of coffee.

Kindergarten and Politics from Ken’s Konservative Korner lessons in power and people from the earliest stages with Ken Mattheisen A few weeks back, in a reply to a very brief piece in The Hype Weekly called “The campaign is finally over”, I alluded that a kindergarten was adequate enough education to make it happily through life. The reply post overall seemed to also start World War III politically within Hypeville, but enough about that, for what is done is done, and I believe anything else would only be redundantly running the obviously controversial subject deeper into terra firma. But the kindergarten reference might be well worth re-visiting. When I went to kindergarten, kids only went for a half day, either a morning or afternoon session. I went in the afternoon, and I’m sure this ruined any chance I had of becoming a ‘morning’ person, and began what was the slow, and what has been a life long process, prying open of the left side of my brain. What I remember most about my kindergarten days was taking a nap on an old rug you brought in at the beginning of the year, having a real cigar box full of supplies (and it was your own stuff!), painting in a huge old dress shirt of your dads, bringing a nickel in on Monday for milk for the week, and having to line up just to go to the bathroom. According to a previously published and well known list, there are ten very important things that all who attended kindergarten should have learned that will help carry them through life. The list is cute to be sure, just basic do’s and don’ts, but maybe we all need to re-visit the innocence in the ten simple rules and compare them to our own lives once in a while, use them as a barometer just to make sure we personally are capable of living with our fellow man in a cohesive manner. The holidays are nearing where we all do seem to try to be nice to one another for couple of weeks anyway, so maybe the timing is perfect to share the list.

Here is the generally accepted ‘Kindergarten’ list, with only minor political comment from yours truly:

SHARE EVERYTHING To share something that is clearly yours is not easy. And to share with someone you don’t even like might sometimes seem impossible. But when you do give something to someone, do not expect to get it back. Nancy Pelosi is good at sharing our things.

Play Fair Play Fair. Whether you’re driving on the interstate, in a business meeting at work, talking with a spouse or friend or out in a boat on the lake fishing, there are rules. Being a rebel may be cool, but stay within the general premise of the rules. Nothing is taboo today though when it comes to politicians in our country. What ever happened to R-E-S-P-E-C-T? News networks seem to think there are no rules when it comes to representing politics, or any news for that matter.

NO hitting Don’t hit people. In many ways the bullying of today is worse than before. It used to be only the big dummies could bully, now it’s weirdos that do the bullying. The damage one can inflict on another in this internet age can be far worse than losing the cupcake out of your lunch. In seconds the world can know what a fool we all are for believing something just because it’s posted on the internet. I know there is a football coach in Lubbock, Texas that wishes Al Gore never invented the internet.




Put things back where you found them

DECEMBER 6, 2012

Lack of organization is called being lazy, but what should be expected of people who no longer have to walk to school in two feet of snow uphill both ways? And if you borrow something, take it back to the owner in better shape than you borrowed it. Most of all, take it back. Liberals seem to seriously believe that possession equates to ownership. The ‘Right’eous seem to think things are theirs and always have been and always will be.

clean up your own mess Unless you are in a retirement home receiving custodial care there is no reason not to clean up any thing you spill. New administrations should not have to bail out the previous administration each changing of a party, but at the same time they knew what they were getting into when they put their name on the ballot. These messes of wars and tax laws need to terminate at the end of each party’s reign. If the new guy wants to start a new war or tax, then let him be the one to start them.

don’t take things that do not belong to you Thou shall not steal, commandment number seven. It was better when the Ten Commandments were out there where people could see them. I know some don’t agree, but did they really hurt anything? I pity the poor soul who meets St. Peter and when he is asked if he obeyed or not can only reply “Obeyed what?” …”See ya!”

wash your hands I was taught to sing happy birthday two times while washing my hands. This seems a small investment of time in order to suppress germs, especially with winter and cold season upon us all of a sudden. I also was told that drinking a glass of orange juice a day will prevent me from getting sick. I do, and I have only missed a handful of days in 40 years of working.

flush No shit!

always say sorry when you hurt someone Pain and suffering are a part of life. The highs and miracles of each day could not be fully appreciated without experiencing lows and disappointment. But if someone deliberately and maliciously hurts another, physically, orally, or mentally, then apologies are in order. A single tear may require a hundred “I’m sorry’s” to make up for the infliction, because words are cheaper than feelings. But if somebody simply bests you in some form of match up, then it’s up to you to bone up to the fact you lost, and they won. Competition is competitive, if you wanna win, practice harder.

warm cookies and cold milk are good for you This one is listed last for a reason. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger type days turn out okay with cookies and milk.

closing thoughts Finding happiness in life is similar to managing a stocks and bonds portfolio. Basically do what everybody else is doing most of the time, and then just a tweak here and there once in awhile will make sure it’s going where you want it to be going. This list of kindergarten lessons actually does cover

most day to day needs, so cut this article out, or print it out, if necessary modify it so it makes more sense to you, and heed its wisdom. Smile, and the whole world smiles with you. Frown and you frown alone.

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.

Weekend Hours May Vary




SPORTSBALL! written by the rarest breed of south texan:

potential loss to the Heat early in the year was worth having his best players rested for a crucial divisional match up against the Grizzlies. What were the results of Popovich’s strategic resting? Oh you know, just a 99-95 overtime victory over the Grizzlies. David Stern has been the commissioner of the NBA for 28 years now, and in that time, he has

managed to offend a great many people. I for one, however, think that he has been the best commissioner in all of professional sports. Up until now, I have never had a problem with the way that he has lead the league. Sure, he has never been high on the Spurs, they are a small market team that is anything but flashy, and they just do not generate television ratings or revenue for the league. But up until now, Stern has never attempted to interfere with the way that they run their team. David Stern was wrong to apologize to the NBA fans and promise to level severe sanctions against the Spurs before the game even started. The fact of the matter is, there is nothing in the NBA rulebook that says that you have to play your star players every night, nor should there be. Greg Popovich is managing his team for the long run, not a meaningless win one month into a five month season. After the game, nigh everybody supported Popovich’s right to manage his team in whatever fashion he chose. Stern knew this, and knew that he had misspoken prior to the game. Rather than admitting his mistake, however, Stern compounded it by leveling the Spurs with a quarter of a million dollar fine.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not from around here. I was born and raised in Texas (San Antonio to be precise, hence my love for the Spurs), so it is with a heavy heart that I congratulate the Kansas State Wildcats on their victory over my Texas Longhorns. I know KState will represent the Big 12 admirably in the Fiesta Bowl, and I fully expect them to defeat the Oregon Ducks (sorry Sean). Speaking of the Spurs, a funny thing happened last Thursday. San Antonio, playing its 4th game in 5 nights, decided to rest four of their five top scorers, and still managed to nearly knock off the defending champion Miami Heat. Their reward for this David vs. Goliath-esque feat: a $250,000 fine from NBA commissioner David Stern Those of you who follow professional basketball know that the San Antonio Spurs are one of the oldest teams in the league; the so-called “big three” of the Spurs (Time Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili) have a combined 36 years of experience in the league (that’s 15 for Duncan, 11 for Parker, and 10 for Ginobili). The Spurs, under the leadership of Greg Popovich, have learned a thing or two about keeping their aging superstars rested and healthy in order to remain competitive all these years. (And competitive they have been, they’ve made it to the playoffs every year for the past 15 years and have won four championships.) For the Spurs, one key way to keep their superstars healthy is to rest them in the second game of a back-to-back (two games in two nights) during the regular season, regardless of who their opponent might be. This is exactly what Popovich did on Thursday, only this time, the Spurs were playing the defending champion Miami Heat on national TV, and David Stern (the commissioner of the NBA) was livid. Upon learning that the Spurs had sent Duncan, Parker and Ginobili, as well as shooting guard Danny Green back to San Antonio after Wednesday night’s game in Orlando (as opposed to sending them with the rest of the team to Miami), Stern immediately said, “I apologize to all NBA fans,’’ saying that ‘’This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming.’’ Ap-

parently Stern though that by sending four of their top five scorers home, San Antonio was essentially throwing in the towel to the defending champions. Stern issued his apology and threatened his sanctions just as the game was tipping off. Had he waited 48 minutes, perhaps he would not have made such an ass of himself. For you see, Popovich and the Spurs did not simply lie down in front of the Heat and a national television audience, rather the bench players of the Spurs gave the superstars of the Heat all they could handle. Aside from a slow start, the Spurs were competitive with the Heat for much of the game. They were even ahead by 5 with 2:14 left in the fourth quarter. The Heat, behind some incredibly gutsy play from LeBron James, were eventually able to pull out a 105-100 victory. The NBA fans that Stern so magnanimously apologized to before the game tip off were treated to one of the most amazing regular season games ever. The bench players of the San Antonio Spurs, the second string, a group of has-beens and rookies, came this close to knocking off a completely healthy defending champion Miami Heat team. When asked why he chose to rest his superstars, Popovich said that he made the decision to rest his big three back in July when the schedule came out (he only added Green to that list after the third year player logged an abundance of minutes in the previous 5 games.) The Miami game was the end of a six game road trip (and the 11th road game of the season for the Spurs) and the sixth game in nine nights. What is more, the Miami game was also the fourth game in five days for the Spurs (they played in Toronto on Sunday, Washington DC on Monday, had Wednesday off and played Orlando on Wednesday). Saturday’s home game was no treat for the Spurs either, they faced their Southwest Division rivals the Memphis Grizzlies, the team with the best record in the Western Conference. In contrast, Miami was playing its 14th game of the season, first game since Saturday and only its fifth game in the past two weeks. Popovich, back in July, made the decision that in a league where teams play 82 games in a season, a

movies by marcus from action to cut with marcus Jay Woody Allen once said, “Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go, its once of the best.” So it goes for Men in Black 3. It’s a paycheck movie for everyone involved, but as paycheck movies go, it’s pretty good. The film opens with Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) escaping from Lunar Max prison, a supermax prison on the moon, and vowing to track down and kill MiB Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). Boris’s first attempt fails and he decides to travel back in time so he can kill K as a much younger version of himself. Boris apparently achieves this, leaving Agent J (Will Smith) the only person at MiB who remembers K. J finds the means to go back in time, and ends up in 1969. In 1969 J meets the young K (Josh Brolin), and the two agents team up to track down Boris the Animal and stop him from sabotaging the Apollo 11 space ship. Along the way J and Young K meet Andy Warhol, an alien named

men in black III Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin Written by: Etan Cohen Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld

Griffin who can see all possible futures, and assorted others. This isn’t a bloated sequel like Men in Black 2 was, and it never overstays its welcome. Screenwriter Etan Coen and director Barry Sonnenfeld opted to go for a less is more approach, and it pays off well. Too many third films in a franchise feel either hollow or overstuffed, but Men in Black 3 never makes this mistake. Etan Coen’s script is streamlined, whittled down to exactly what it needs to be and nothing more. On the acting front, Will Smith is his usual, garrulous self, he could play this role in his sleep, but he does as good as can be expected. His funniest scenes are those in which he has to explain away an alien encounter to a group on bystanders. These are the scenes where Smith’s natural comic abilities are best on display. Tommy Lee Jones is in the film for maybe fifteen minutes;

he does what he does well, and then he’s out of the picture. The best performance belongs to Josh Brolin as Young K. Brolin must have studied hours and hours of Tommy Lee Jones films; it’s uncanny how accurately Brolin is able to mimic Jones both in voice and in mannerisms. Brolin has Jones dead to rights; even his eyes seem to be imitating Tommy Lee Jones. Overall, this is a basically good film. I’m not sorry for missing it during its theatrical run, but as a rental, it’s pretty good. Men in Black 3 will never go down on any list of great films, that’s

not its ambition, but it’s a good time nonetheless. If for no other reason, watch it simply to marvel at Josh Brolin’s performance; you won’t be disappointed.

No shave recap, nice list ahoy! from the hype’s charity ninja Sarah Sullivan The Hairy Results and How to Get Caught on The Hype’s Nice List! November has come and gone and along with it come the results from The Hype Weekly’s November fundraiser; No Shave, No Hunger. Every one of our hairy competitors reached out to friends, family, and even complete strangers to get sponsors for their hair-growing endeavor. Each sponsor would donate money or food donations to support their cause and encourage them to stay strong and not shave. If they did break down and shave, the participant would have to match the donations of every sponsor. When we tallied the food and money donations which all went to the Flint Hills Breadbasket, our winner by a long stretch was none other than yoga instructor and beard grower extraordinaire- Joel Coniglio. Not only did he raise the most money and food donations, he

was also judged by our sponsor judge, Sarah Sue Cunnick of Sisters of Sound, to be the hairiest man in competition. In the Amazon Woman challenge, Caitlin Cash cleaned up as having the most impressive leg hair growth as judged by our very own Evan Tuttle, mayor of Aggieville. We would like to take this time to thank all of our participants; Jeff Kreuser- the man who invented the most brutal trivia known to man and who also came in second in donations raised, Jeff Denney- the man, the myth, the legend, Sean Williamsonthe screen-printing Walson Ink squeegee tamer, and of course Jimbo Ivy, co-owner of The Hype Weekly and my partner in crime. With November fundraising wrapped up, we’re moving quickly into December and our annual “Get Caught on The Hype Weekly’s Nice List”. We take this time of year to reach out to the hearts of our Manhattan community for donations of Toys for Manhattan kids as well as donations for rescued pets at the Manhattan

Humane Society, Four Paws Rescue of Kansas and the Riley County animal shelter. Your donations will make a world of difference in the lives of children and animals this Holiday season. There will be donation boxes at Sisters of Sound, Sunflower Pet Supply and Auntie Mae’s Parlor for you to drop off your donations and fill out a gift tag attached to the front of the donation box which will put you on the Hype Weekly’s Nice List to be printed the following week. We encourage businesses and organizations to donate as well as individuals. What Toys for Manhattan Kids needs: New, unwrapped toys for a variety of ages from newborn to high school age children. What the Humane Society, Four Paws, and

Riley Co. Shelter need: toys for cats, dogs, rabbits (chew toys, squeaky toys, and cat play toys), leashes, collars and harnesses, water and food dishes, treats, cat climbing and scratching apparatuses, cat and dog beds, litter scoops and litter, etc. This holiday season, give a gift to your community, and get caught on our Nice List while you do it.

But what really separates Alamo from the pack is that they love movies. This love goes beyond the classic screenings they host (in addition to new release fare), or the famous quotes engraved on the floors, or the actor and actress pictures and names on the walls of the sparkling restrooms. The Alamo Drafthouse loves movies so much that they will kick you out of the theater if you disrespect them. Talking during the movie? You’ll be asked to leave. Texting during the movie? You’ll definitely be asked to leave. Such rules are driven home by a humorous pre-show


bumper, where the Alamo plays a rambling voicemail left by a drunk and irate customer who was thrown out of her movie for using her phone. While the customer is treasured and respected at the Alamo Drafthouse -- I was blown away by how kind and outgoing the entire staff was, as I met at least a dozen of them -- the movie is what we’re all there to see, and the Drafthouse knows it. This extends well beyond the rules listed above, too. Seating starts a half-hour before the movie, and instead of sitting in front of a lot of advertising and banal trivia, I was able to watch Frank Sinatra clips and black-andwhite animated shorts from Russia. When the film started, there were still no commercials: just a quick glimpse at what was coming to the Drafthouse in the near future, followed by 4 previews. In less than ten minutes, the film had started. I couldn’t help but compare it to a recent new release I watched in Manhattan, when I waited for more than a half-hour for the film to start. I had become one of those lifelong movie lovers who started convincing himself that watching movies at home wasn’t so bad. But the Drafthouse reminded me of a time when I didn’t feel like a hostage at a

movie theater. It was a revelatory experience. “Sure,” you’re probably saying, “This all sounds great, but Kansas City is two hours away.” And you’re right: it’s not the most practical trip for seeing a movie, not if you live in Manhattan anyways. In fact, after seeing the charming “Safety Not Guaranteed” during the Alamo’s soft opening in Kansas City, I lamented the fact that I didn’t live in Kansas City, or that the Alamo couldn’t have moved to Manhattan, or even Topeka. But the Alamo tantalizingly appeals to long-distance movie lovers: the lobby is open and spacious, with old-school arcade games (Pac-Man and Galaga) situated amongst a pool table, foosball table and pinball machine. The Chesterfield is the theater’s in-house bar, which collects ticket stubs as drink coupons. There’s plenty of space in which to relax if you want to spend more than 90 minutes at the Drafthouse.

DECEMBER 6, 2012

There are a few simple things to know about the Alamo Drafthouse, things that separate it from any other movie theater you’ve likely visited: they serve food, but not just movie theater food. Yes, you can order popcorn and Sour Patch Kids, but you can also eat burgers and pizza and salads. The sodas are bottomless, but you can also order local and imported beers, or have the bartender make you a cocktail, or even get a milkshake delivered to your seat. Tables situated between every two seats make these movie meals manageable, rather than messy.

John Carroll As a longtime admirer of Austin’s famous Alamo Drafthouse, I was thrilled this June when the growing company bought AMC’s Mainstreet 6 theater in Kansas City’s Power and Light District. While the theater continued operating after purchase, it wasn’t exactly a true Alamo experience, which is why they closed down in October and re-opened this month as the new and improved Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet.

Sure, I couldn’t possibly make the drive for every new release I want to see. But can I picture myself driving out to Kansas City a few times a year, and building a day around a movie? I certainly can. It’s worth the trip, and if I ever need a reminder of why, I’ll receive it every time I step into Carmike 12 and realize that moviewatching not only can be better, but now is better -- just a short two hour drive away.
