Some OSU students wait to participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Jan. 20 at the Ohio Union.

ANDREA HENDERSON Asst. multimedia editor henderson.578@osu.edu Students were invited to the Ohio Union to participate in community service projects Monday, but many were turned away. Hundreds of students piled into the Union Monday morning to register for volunteering as a way to honor and pay tribute to Martin Luther King Jr., but more than one-third of those potential participants were turned away. The MLK Day of Service, coordinated by Pay It Forward and the Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center, was organized to give students the opportunity to work on various volunteer projects around the Ohio State and Columbus communities. Students in line to register wrapped around the first and second floor of the Union, though the organizers weren’t ready for the overwhelming attendance. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service coordinator Annalisa Perez said 800 participants were sent out to service sites, but she believes about 500 people were turned away. “We weren’t really expecting that high volume of people,” Perez said. According to the MLK Day of Service website, the day typically draws “nearly 1,000” students. She said a lot of volunteer sites are closed on

When the Ohio State on-campus living requirement takes effect for second-year students Fall Semester 2016, Greek houses will not be allowed to have alcohol in common areas and will be required to provide at least one desk per bedroom or dayroom. The recent approval of the Greek Housing Standard is set to give second-year students who are part of Greek Life the option to live off-campus in their chapter’s house as part of the university plan to have all second-year students live on campus. The housing contract deadline for those who live in residence halls to reapply for on-campus living is typically in early February. OSU’s Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council typically give out bids for new members to join their chapters in late January as well, though students don’t usually find out until mid-spring if they’ll be able to live in that chapter’s house. Student Life put together a committee last year that worked on improving the living experience within fraternity and sorority facilities to make it more in line with residence hall requirements, Dave Isaacs, spokesman for Student Life, said in an email. “The committee then developed concentration areas, resulting in a draft document. The document was then shared with the community for feedback. All requests for presentations and feedback were honored,” Isaacs said. “The committee then incorporated the feedback before proposing the final document.” The areas that were discussed and biggest changes included the banning of alcohol from all common areas, a requirement to have a live-in adviser and a requirement to have a desk and a study space in each bedroom. The committee that worked on the document included faculty, staff and representatives of the Greek Life governing councils, IFC, the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council Inc. and PHA. The policies, though, aren’t completely new. “The Greek Housing Standard is an addition to OSU’s existing Standards of Excellence program,” Isaacs said. The Standards of Excellence program has been in effect since 2011 and aims to improve the condition of the Greek Life community by requiring chapters to establish plans and submit annual reports about their progress. If chapters comply with the new policies, though, they will be eligible to participate in the SecondYear Transformational Experience Program. STEP is a co-curricular component of the requirement for second-year students to live on campus that will likely not be mandatory for students.

OSU falls to Nebraska in 4th straight loss ERIC SEGER Sports editor seger.25@osu.edu The mystery continues. The Ohio State men’s basketball team lost its fourth straight game Monday, this time falling to Nebraska, 68-62. The loss marks the first time the Buckeyes have lost four straight games since February 2008. The song was the same early for the Buckeyes, whose shooting struggles continued as they only made eight field goals in the first half. Nebraska extended its lead to 34-20 with 2:22 left in the first half after junior forward Leslee Smith scored on a breakaway layup following a turnover by junior center Amir Williams. OSU would find some life before halftime, though, scoring five straight points to make the score 34-25 at the break. The Buckeyes’ run continued early in the second half, as a 9-2 run narrowed the score to 36-34, in favor of Nebraska. A jumper by junior forward LaQuinton Ross gave OSU the lead for the final time in the game, 46-45, with 5:59 remaining, but the Buckeyes could not sustain enough offense down the stretch and fell behind by 10 points with just over a minute remaining. Freshman forward Marc Loving nailed a 3-pointer on the Buckeyes’ next possession, but the Cornhuskers (9-8, 1-4) made 11 free throws during the game’s final 1:15 to ice the game. It is the first time in 10 tries that the Cornhuskers defeated OSU. The Buckeyes were 6-0 against Nebraska since Thad Matta took over in 2004-05. The Cornhuskers were led by sophomore guard Shavon Shields and redshirt-sophomore forward Terran Petteway, who scored 18 points each. Nebraska shot 50 percent from the field in the game. OSU (15-4, 2-4) was led by senior guard Aaron Craft, who scored 12 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists. He also had a team-high four turnovers. Ross came into the game averaging a

The Rho chapter of Alpha Phi, a women’s fraternity, pose for photos on Bid Day Jan. 20 at the chapter’s house, located at 134 E. 15th Ave. Sororities and fraternities will be required to follow certain policies to participate in OSU’s second-year living program. OSU has 16 already established PHA sororities and one colonizing chapter, Gamma Phi Beta. According to the PHA website, there are more than 2,000 women involved in these chapters at OSU. There are more than 2,000 active men in more than 30 fraternities in the IFC at OSU, according to the IFC website. Madison Aballi, the housing manager of OSU’s Chi Omega Zeta Alpha chapter and a third-year in nursing, said the new rules for the Greek Housing Standard will be an easy adjustment for her chapter. “We already have a housing core that does a yearly checkup of our house to make sure our building is up to code,” Aballi said. “We’re already a dry house and we have a house mom.” Gordon Gough, the president of the Ohio Delta Company of the Phi Kappa Psi national fraternity, said the OSU Phi Kappa Psi Ohio Delta chapter house was renovated and completed in summer

2011 and includes many aspects of what the new Greek Housing Standard requires. “We have all the full life systems, such as sprinklers and smoke detectors,” Gough said. “Each bedroom has a desk because we believe in having dedicated educational places that we incorporated into the house years ago.” Gough said the common areas on the first floor are already dry, so the new alcohol requirement will not be an adjustment and added that overall, the fraternity is prepared. “All the final guidelines are probably still wet and we’ll read over everything just to make sure we didn’t leave any stone unturned,” Gough said. Isaacs said chapters have the choice to opt-in or opt-out once the new requirements take effect. “There is no impact on the chapter’s ability to participate in recruitment or other aspects of recognition whether they choose to opt-in or not,” Isaacs said.

The Buckeyes are scheduled to return home Thursday to take on Illinois (13-6, 2-4) at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. The Fighting Illini come into the game on a four-game losing streak of their own.

EMILY HITCHCOCK Lantern reporter hitchcock.47@osu.edu Some researchers at Ohio State have struggled to recruit student participants for studies despite using multiple venues for advertising. Some students, though, said they attribute the low participation rates to a lack of understanding what would be asked of them. Rose Hallarn, program director of clinical trial recruitment for the OSU Center for Clinical and

Translational Science and institutional liaison for ResearchMatch, a registry of volunteers who want to learn more about research studies, said research is crucial to moving forward. “Without research there is no movement forward on what the best methods are for health care,” Hallarn said. “Any medication that you are taking today … (has) happened because of research.” Some research studies are closed prematurely if researchers are not able to get enough volunteers to participate, and Hallarn said this can slow down research more than anything else.

MUYAO SHEN Lantern reporter shen.414@osu.edu Ohio State’s first Health Sciences Innovation Conference is set to be held in India next year. The conference, scheduled for Jan. 15 through 18, 2015, is meant to focus on the high-speed development of the biotech and health sciences industry in India with the goal of fostering partnerships between OSU faculty and other Indian academic institutions, according to the Office of International Affairs website. The All India Institute for Medical Sciences is hosting the conference with OSU.

William Brustein, vice provost for Global Strategies and International Affairs, said OSU has been working on partnering with Indian enterprises and institutions since 2012, when the OSU India Gateway office opened in Mumbai. “We had a number of individuals who represented the health sciences with us during that trip,” Brustein said. The Global Gateway program aims to give OSU a presence in selected countries by providing students, alumni and faculty opportunities for networking, studying abroad and conducting research, according to its website.

MICHELE THEODORE Copy chief theodore.13@osu.edu Cazuela’s Grill is back in business after a small fire closed the restaurant’s doors for more than a week. The Mexican bar and restaurant reopened Friday after smoke from a small fire damaged wood on the exterior of the building Jan. 9. The restaurant was closed at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported, 3rd Battalion Chief Rick Artrip said Jan. 9. “We were asked a lot when it was going to open (after the fire),” said Susan Martin, director of operations for Eventide, which owns the

building where Cazuela’s is located at 2247 N. High St. Martin said there were “very minor damages” to the building and did not know how much the damages would cost because the building was re-opened with a temporary fix. “The temporary fix will last until we do the permanent fix but the permanent fix needs to go through city permitting so it will last as long as it needs to,” Martin said. “Temporary allowed us to get it open. We walled off the damaged area.” The damages were on the exterior of the building, so the temporary fix did not affect seating for Cazuela’s. Jessica Quedada, a manager at Cazuela’s, said

USG seeks to increase students’ election awareness JEREMY SAVITZ For The Lantern savitz.3@osu.edu After the Ohio State Undergraduate Student Government president ran unopposed in last year’s election, USG representatives are working to advertise the process more this time around. Applications opened Monday for students interested in running for a spot on Ohio State’s Undergraduate Student Government. The petition window runs through Jan. 31. Students who want to run for president or vice president must obtain 750 signatures, while students who plan to run for senator are required to obtain 50 signatures.

But those looking to run should be ready to govern more than just the Columbus campus, as USG represents all of OSU’s campuses. “One of the largest obstacles I faced during the process was communicating with all the students from all the campuses,” said USG President Taylor Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs. “Reaching out to all the students during the campaigning window becomes a time and money issue.” Chief Justice of the Judiciary Panel Tyler Byrum, a fourth-year in engineering physics, who holds an appointed position, said he faced similar obstacles. “Getting information out to everyone in the allotted time tends to be the hardest thing for candidates,” Byrum said. Stepp, who is serving his second term, ran

unopposed last year. His first election in 2012 saw the largest voter turnout since 1975. “I feel that was mainly due to how unified our organization was,” Stepp said. “The students were happy with the progress we were making and wanted us to continue the great work we were doing.” USG plans to spend its $5,000 budget for advertising doing various things to increase student awareness of the election, Byrum said. “We plan to post flyers, hold debates, send emails to the entire student body and we also have a headline event in the planning stages. More on that is forthcoming. Last year we had an issue of people with interest not finding out about the process until it was too late. We plan to minimize that,” Byrum said.

Stepp said getting students involved early is key. “Student government is incredibly important for many reasons. We’re able to sit in on various committees, as well as have a loud voice in the Big Ten, as well as in the city of Columbus itself,” Stepp said. “(The election) this year is going to be highly competitive. I see a large field which is indicative of the growing level of interest.”

Research from 1A “The biggest limiting factor (in) moving science forward and in understanding the best ways to improve our health and to treat current health issues, diseases and conditions is that there aren’t enough study participants being enrolled quickly enough to help that process happen,” Hallarn said. While OSU could potentially be a huge pool of volunteers, some researchers haven’t had many students respond to their recruitment efforts. There were no OSU undergraduate participants in two recent asthma studies conducted at the OSU Asthma Center, said John Mastronarde, professor of internal medicine and director of the clinical trials office for the division of pulmonary, allergy, critical care and sleep medicine at the Wexner Medical Center. “We haven’t had a lot of luck reaching students which is a little surprising to me because I think they’re at a time when they have some time to do research studies,” Mastronarde said. Mastronarde said, though, he isn’t sure students are aware of the number of studies going on at OSU. Using social media and installing a kiosk in the Ohio Union that would list all the clinical studies available might be better ways to reach students than printed advertisements, Mastronarde said. The OSU Center for Clinical and Translational Science website gives a telephone hotline number for more information about studies, as well as links to research websites for those who are seeking out research studies on their own through a page called StudySearch. Trials found on the StudySearch website vary greatly in their expectations of volunteers. In the same search results, one study required two injections of different anesthetics into the volunteer’s lower molar, while another asked participants to take a fish oil supplement regularly for three months. Study participants first go through a consent process with the coordinator of the study that involves reading and talking about any risks, Hallarn said. “A participant in a research study is actually much more closely watched than you might see in a patient physician relationship because they are being observed specifically for a reaction,” Hallarn said. Every study has to go through the Institutional

India from 2A currently offices in Shanghai and Mumbai, and OSU is set to open an office in São Paulo by early fall 2014. Brustein said the 2015 conference is one of the achievements from the Gateway partnership. “Now this conversation has evolved to the point where we decided it would make sense to put on this major conference in January of 2015 that would address the interests of India enterprises, in pharmacy, in biotech and regenerative medicine,” Brustein said. Brustein also said this cooperation could benefit both OSU and India. Yong Chen, a Ph.D. student in chemistry, said he thinks the conference will be valuable to OSU. “We have so many students from India at Ohio State, and I believe once OSU hosts this conference in Mumbai, it will have immediate effects on increasing (the number) of students from India,” Chen said. Chen also said he remembers OSU having a similar conference in China, where he is from. “We had the same thing in China, and it attracted many students to apply (to) OSU,” Chen said. Brustein said the health issues affecting India and the U.S. are issues affecting the world at large. “It is a good match for our researchers and

Martin Luther King Jr. Day and that outdoor volunteer sites weren’t an option this time of year. “We did all we could to get enough sites,” Perez said. “We’ve been calling months in advance.” Perez said last week there were slated to be about 50 service sites, up from about 45 last year. Even with the large number of people turned away, Perez said she stayed positive about the situation. “I’m thrilled that there’s so many people at Ohio State that care enough to get out of bed (that) early in the morning and come out, even if they don’t get to go,” she said. Registration for service began at 8 a.m., according to the event website. Maggie O’Shea, a fourth-year in English, was one student who was turned away. “It was cool to see how many people actually turned out for it,” she said. “But it’s still kind of a bummer that not everyone who woke up and came out for it could’ve done stuff.” This was O’Shea’s first time coming out for the event. She said if she were to do it again, she would make sure to show up earlier. “It was honestly crazy how packed it was this morning, especially that early,” O’Shea said. Office of Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs

Friday the restaurant was focusing on getting customers to come back after the closure. “I think the people thought we would be closed for a long time so we hardly have any customers right now, so we’re trying to let people know that we’re open again,” Quedada said. She said the closure affected some employees. “If we were closed, this is their only job, so they don’t make any money for the whole week and a half,” Quedada said. An employee at Cazuela’s said Monday the restaurant was not disclosing how much the fire would affect it financially but that business was “pretty good.” Artrip said he believed the equipment that plumbers were using to reheat and repair frozen pipes started the fire. Temperatures hit a low of 21 degrees in Columbus Jan. 9, days after reaching minus 9 degrees Jan. 6, according to Weather Underground.

said in an email Monday that what happened says a lot about the OSU community. “It is extremely gratifying that so many students are willing to make this a day on and not a day off. It says a great deal about the quality of Ohio State’s students, faculty and staff that large numbers are hearing the call to service,” Isaacs said in the email. O’Shea said she doesn’t know if organizers could’ve planned for the crowd better, but the organizers could make it more clear in the future they will only be taking a certain number of participants. Jack Worth, a fourth-year in health science, participated in the event with his service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. “We like to give back to the community any way that we can, and what better day to do it than Martin Luther King (Jr.) Day?” Worth said. Worth said he commutes to school from his home 35 minutes away, but that didn’t stop him from making it to the event Monday morning. “When you’re here with all your friends and you realize you’re doing something for the community, it takes all that petty stuff away,” he said. “It makes it all worthwhile.”

Review Board, Mastronarde said, which makes sure studies are safe and that the risks don’t outweigh the benefits or the knowledge gained. “The more risks you’re asking someone to take, the more you’re going to compensate them for it because you’re asking them for their time and they are going to take on some potential complications,” Mastronarde said. “There’s a big difference between filling out a questionnaire and having a biopsy done.” Researchers can apply for sponsorship from nonprofits like the American Cancer Society as well as from for-profit businesses like pharmaceutical companies, Mastronarde said. The National Institutes of Health and OSU also sponsor some research grants and studies, Mastronarde said. Molly Hesness, a third-year in environment, economy, development and sustainability, said her main motivation for participating in research studies has been the compensation. She has participated in three different studies so far. “I guess people are nervous that their information is going to get out, but I have nothing to hide and I love free money,” Hesness said. “I can see how other people would be nervous about the medical aspect of the studies, but my mom is a nurse so I am completely comfortable with it.” Hesness said everything was explained to her by the researchers before any of the studies started. Kyle Martin, a third-year in neuroscience, said he has helped out researchers with data analysis entry during a research trial, but has never participated as a subject. “I’ve been interested in trying out a study and I’ve seen the flyers on campus, but I’ve just never had time,” Martin said. “It’s also something I’ve never done so I’m kind of leery of trying it out and seeing how it goes, but I’d definitely like to sometime.” He added that students likely don’t participate more often because of a lack of understanding. “I think a lot of people see it as a bunch of nerdy scientists looking for something that they (students) are not a part of,” Martin said. “The majority of people have nothing wrong with them so they’ve never experienced research or experienced a hospital so they’re not experienced with how research actually works.”

researchers in India to get together, to work together, to address these major health issues because those health issues are truly global,” Brustein said. “They affect India but they also affect the United States.” Chandni Pawar, a fourth-year in chemistry, said she likes the idea of the health sciences conference. “I think in terms of especially technologies and sciences, (that) OSU (is) going to the country of my family is kind of amazing,” Pawar said. Brustein said he hopes OSU students take advantage of the opportunity the conference provides. “Because having students involved, both undergraduate and professional graduate students, is important here, hopefully we will be able to use some of the money that we have from the (India) Gateway and from the health sciences to fund some of the students to go over from here to participate,” Brustein said. Brustein said he sees the conference as a source of job opportunities for students as well. “I see this conference as, again, opening those doors further in building relationships with industries, particular(ly) in (the areas) of biotech and pharmacy in India, as well as here in central Ohio, that could lead to internships, that could lead to jobs, but that also could leads to investments, research initiatives,” Brustein said.

Andrew Stiene, a fourth-year in biology and physical education, said he is a frequent visitor of Cazuela’s and was sad to hear the restaurant was closed. “I felt like a part of me was missing (while it was closed),” he said. “It was a tradition. Me and my roommates would go there every Friday night, have (margaritas). It kind of broke tradition. “I’m extremely excited now (that the restaurant has re-opened),” Stiene said. Other students were also disappointed Cazuela’s was closed, even for a short time. “It kind of sucks (that Cazuela’s was closed),” said Emily Cramer, a second-year in marketing. “They have really good tacos and it’s cheap.” Martin said, though, she was happy the fire didn’t spread more than it did. “It could have been (worse),” Martin said. “Thank God it wasn’t.”

Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian to be featured in OSU event MATTHEW LOVETT AND DANIELLE SEAMON Asst. arts editor and Arts editor lovett.45@osu.edu, seamon.17@osu.edu The founder of one of the Internet’s most prominent purveyors of ideas and community is set to come to Ohio State. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian is set to speak at Mershon Auditorium Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. in a lecture sponsored by Fundable LLC, a Columbus-based crowdfunding platform. The event is hosted and organized by OSU’s Business Builders Club, a club for students who aspire to be entrepreneurs. Reddit is a social networking website where users post and submit content through links or by text posts. In 2013, Reddit announced it accumulated 56 billion page views and 731 million unique visitors throughout the year. Ohanian is currently touring the Unitd States in support of his new book, “Without Their Permission,” which outlines Reddit’s foundation and conception. Founded by Ohanian and Steve Huffman in 2005, Jay Clouse, a fourth-year in marketing and president of the Business Builders Club, called Ohanian “relatable” and articulated the importance of the Internet when launching any kind of business. “I want people to kind of understand how to use the Internet effectively. The future of the Internet (is) the future of startups and technology,” Clouse said. “Being educated on that is going to be beneficial to anybody, especially the younger generation as we grow up and we face some of the problems that the older generation has set up for us.” Using technology like Reddit is integral to more than those involved exclusively in the business world, said Eric Corl, co-founder of Fundable. “It’s going to be in everyone’s best interest to learn how to spread ideas better, whether you’re a doctor, or a lawyer or whatever background or career you’re going after,” Corl said. “Spreading ideas on the Internet is a key driver for a lot of things.” Clouse said he hopes the audience leaves Ohanian’s lecture understanding that entrepreneurs do not have to be like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in order to be successful. “We’re a club for people who want to be business builders. To be a business builder, you can do that from any facet of a company,” Clouse said. “Anybody that is contributing to the growth and sustainability of a business is a business builder.” Euan Rae, a third-year in environmental policy and decision-making and a regular Reddit user, said he is intrigued to see what Ohanian has to say to students. “I think it’d be a really interesting seminar speech,” Rae said. “It’d be interesting to go and see that and see what he says about entrepreneurship.” Corl said in an email that about 20 percent of the original 2,500 seats of Mershon Auditorium remain available for the event, and although tickets are free, seats have to be reserved through the event’s page on Eventbrite. Wil Schroter, CEO of Fundable, is scheduled to moderate the event.

‘50 Shades’ to be treated as a parody in musical LEAH ALEXANDER Lantern reporter alexander.641@osu.edu Fans of weekday musicals are able to see something edgier this week. The racy book series, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has turned into a satirical musical, and it is showing at Columbus’ Southern Theatre Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. Published in 2011, the trilogy has sold more than 90 million copies worldwide as many readers fell for the love story between Christian Grey and Anastasia “Ana” Steele. The story follows Steele, a recent college graduate, as she is seduced by Grey, an older, successful entrepreneur, into a sexual relationship that revolves around bondage and masochism. In “50 Shades! The Musical,” the audience follows the story of three women who are reading the book in a women’s book club. Their interpretation of the story is portrayed through 11 original songs and dance numbers. The production has been on stage since August 2012 and has been touring in cities across the country. Despite the mature plotline of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” cast member Nick Semar, who plays

the role of Jose, Anastasia’s friend, defended the production’s intentions. “They don’t understand it’s a parody of (the books), it makes fun of it. People end up loving it,” Semar said. Some were pleasantly surprised to find out that the musical was coming to Columbus because of their love for the books. Olivia Harder, a third-year in zoology, said she is interested in seeing the musical. “I love musicals. I read the books two summers ago and thought they were great. I would definitely go and see that,” Harder said. Cole Ledford, a second-year in business, is familiar with the series but has not read the books. “I probably wouldn’t go see (the musical) just because it sounds like a chick flick,” Ledford said. Semar disagreed. “A lot of men end up coming to our show, whether on their own or because they are dragged by somebody, and they think they’re going to hate it and they don’t,” Semar said. The Southern Theatre is located at 21 E. Main St. Tickets start at $39.50 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

Schottenstein Center stage collapses, injures 4 workers post-Luke Bryan show

RITIKA SHAH / Asst. photo editor

Four workers sustained minor injuries at the Schottenstein Center after part of the stage collapsed following Luke Bryan’s concert Jan. 16.

HAYDEN GROVE Asst. sports director at BuckeyeTV grove.157@osu.edu

Four workers sustained minor injuries at the Schottenstein Center after part of the stage collapsed following Luke Bryan’s concert Thursday. Ohio State spokesman Gary Lewis confirmed the incident and said there is an ongoing investigation. “We are confirming that an incident occurred which caused some damage to a stage at the Schottenstein Center,” Lewis said in an email. “We are in the process of conducting an investigation. This was an isolated occurrence and all upcoming events, including Saturday’s ‘Winter Jam’ concert, proceeded as scheduled.” According to a Schottenstein Center employee, who wished to remain anonymous because of his employment, the incident occurred when a forklift carrying large video equipment hit the stage and caused multiple boards to collapse. From there, a domino effect took place as employees fell into the stage and sound equipment fell on those employees. Four total employees, three of whom are employed at the Schottenstein Center and one of whom is employed by Live Nation, who was with Luke Bryan’s camp, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but all were released by Saturday. The situation, the Schottenstein employee said, was an accident that occurred in a small space while the employees were tearing down Bryan’s setup. “It was just a tight space,” the employee said. “It seemed like a really minor slip.” The employee also said all equipment was being operated properly and all safety measures were intact. “We had the policy in place where everyone in the bowl at the time had hard hats on,” the employee said. “There was a lot of mitigated risk there.” Workers were sent home after the accident occurred, and the cleanup resumed the following day at about 2 p.m. While the mishap was accidental, Bryan rescheduled the date of his stop in Lexington, Ky. Originally set for Friday, the night after the show in Columbus, Bryan is now set to perform in Lexington Feb. 21. A Schottenstein Center representative did not respond to an email requesting comment Monday evening.

[ a+e ] Alumnus to boom onto OSU stage in percussion ensemble

Growing up as a child, I always heard over-exaggerated reports warning parents about the dangers of television, and how there are a plethora of programs that are terrible influences for children. No one talked about the good influences that might arise from television – until now. MTV certainly isn’t a bastion of morality or quality television programming, but it might not be quite as desolate as many people – such as myself – often imagine it is. Early last week, MTV published an article on its website about a new report, published Jan. 13 by the National Bureau of Economic Research,which cites NICK ROLL MTV’s popular show, “16 and Pregnant” and the spin-off series, “Teen Mom,” as causes for reduction in teen Lantern reporter pregnancy. roll.66@osu.edu According to the abstract of the report, the researchers found “‘16 and Pregnant’ led to more searches and tweets regarding birth control and abortion, and ultimately led to a 5.7 percent reduction in teen births in the 18 months following its introduction. This accounts for around one-third of the overall decline in teen births in the United States during that period.” According to the report, teen pregnancy as a whole fell in the U.S. an average of 2.5 percent each year from 1991 to 2008, and 7.5 percent from 2008 to 2012. Researchers used TV ratings, Google Trends and Twitter to identify how popular the show was and to find correlation between searches and tweets about birth control during times that the show aired. Now I’m aware that correlation does not equal causation, but nevertheless, the results of the study are quite impressive, and after looking at the report myself, it’s reasonable to believe “16 and Pregnant” did have at least some impact on teen pregnancy. In the most recent data available from 2012, teen pregnancy was cited at 2.94 percent in women ages 15 to 19, a drastic change from 6.18 percent in 1991. This news comes a shock to me, because until now I found almost no redeeming qualities in MTV’s programming. Sure, I’ve watched “Jersey Shore” as a guilty pleasure a few times, but that doesn’t mean it was a good show. The closest MTV’s programming has ever gotten to being legitimately interesting to me was with “The Buried Life” and “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous,” two shows I believe had great content and messages. Since both of these shows have been canceled, I’ve only grown to be disappointed and annoyed with the network. As much as I’ve disliked MTV, “16 and Pregnant” and the “Teen Mom” series, it appears I was the one in the wrong. I held a popular view that shows like “16 and Pregnant” did nothing but glorify teen pregnancy and satisfy Americans’ boredom by filling their time with mindless drama. While it very well might have been a mindless guilty pleasure for some, the shows clearly made a difference in the lives of many teenagers and young adults. I can’t believe I agree with this, but after the results of the study, I can now say that I stand behind shows like “16 and Pregnant.” I guess you could say that kids who were sheltered from shows like “Teen Mom” were possibly at more risk than those who did watch it. Another fascinating aspect of this study is that based on the results, it seems to suggest that television influence doesn’t just affect young children. The people thought to be affected by “16 and Pregnant” were teenagers. I never thought shows could really influence me that much anymore, but I might be wrong. Presumably bad programming might very well influence older people, particularly young adults. It seems the threshold for influence is a lot higher than I thought.

ARTS Columnist

THY THY NGUYEN Lantern reporter nguyen.1070@osu.edu Amy Garapic, a freelance percussionist living in New York City and an Ohio State alumna, said the decision to return to campus was an easy one. She was asked by her former music professors to join them in performing with the Sympatico Percussion Group, which is set to perform 8 p.m. Tuesday at Weigel Auditorium. “It was kind of a no-brainer. There was no way I could say no,” Garapic, a member of the class of 2009 said. Susan Powell and Joseph Krygier, two of the musical group’s four founding members, are instructors at OSU’s School of Music. Powell is a professor of music and director of percussion studies and Krygier is a senior lecturer of music and dance at OSU’s School of Music. The two met while pursuing their undergraduate education at the Eastman School of Music and became friends, Powell said. Powell said she and Krygier met Scott Herring, the third founding member, through a circle of fellow musicians and teaching networks. Herring currently serves as an associate professor of percussion at the University of South Carolina’s School of Music. The Columbus show is set to mark Garapic’s first performance with the musical group onstage. She studied percussion music in the School of Music at OSU. Powell said the percussion group is set to perform a wide variety of music, ranging from early 20th century jazz music to more modern pieces. Garapic said she is excited to play with her former professors. “I’m also really excited to get to play ragtime (a style of music developed before American Jazz) music with Susan Powell. Susan is a master of that repertoire and that genre, and any time I see her play that music, I’m continuously picking up my jaw off the floor with how fast her hands are moving,” Garapic said. Powell said the percussion group is prepared to perform a wide variety of instruments during the show, including drums, cymbals, gongs, rattles and an array of mallet instruments including the marimba and xylophone. Mario Marini, who graduated from OSU’s School of Music and is currently a first-year graduate student pursuing his doctorate in musical arts, is familiar with the demand of ability that percussion instruments require. “Some of them (instruments) can be very complex and requires a lot of technical demand … You can have instruments that require little technical skill and are not complex. But the important part is that no matter what they’re playing or how complex it is, they get amazing sounds,” Marini said. Marini said he saw the Sympatico Percussion Group play in concert in 2009. “I went to their inaugural concert. It was a life-changing experience seeing them play together. As a young student it really shaped the way I looked at percussion and the possibility of the instrument,” Marini said.

Powell said the opportunity to see the group perform will be an enjoyable experience. “It’s going to be a great concert. Percussion concerts in general are enjoyable because of the variety of sounds and styles,” Powell said. Benjamin Haimann, a second-year in music education and percussion performance, said he plans to attend the show. “I’m planning to go because I’m personally interested in percussion music, but I’m also interested in going because I’ll be able to see five professional musicians perform some really outstanding music in a live chamber setting. That’s a very unique thing and we don’t have that opportunity very often,” Haimann said. Luke Shultz, a fourth-year in music education and performance, said he has attended many Sympatico Percussion Group performances. “I’ve heard them play many times and their performances are always diverse and entertaining,” Shultz said. The Sympatico Percussion Group is set to have two special guests perform with them on stage. Mark Rubinstein, a sound engineer for the School of Music, plays accordion and is slated to join the group alongside Kevin Schempf, an associate professor of clarinet at Bowling Green State University and bass clarinet performer. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for senior citizens, Alumni Association members, non-OSU students and children. Admission is free to all concert card holders and OSU students, faculty and staff with a valid BuckID.

Thompson embracing non-starting role daniel rogers Asst. sports editor rogers.746@osu.edu Ohio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta has his starting five set. Aside from an injury or a drastic turn of form — something that some would argue is happening to the Buckeyes now — it is doubtful that the lineup will change. One player on the outside looking in on the starting five is junior forward Sam Thompson, despite his status as on the front line last season. Thompson started every game for OSU during his sophomore season, averaging 7.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. But this year he has been on the bench at the beginning of every contest, something he said doesn’t bother him. “I know that every guy in that locker room wants the same thing that I want, and that’s to win basketball games,” Thompson said Jan. 15. “(Against) Michigan State, we found a group out there that had it going. I was fortunate enough to be part of that group. Against Iowa, coach Matta found another group that he felt would help best win the game. At the end of the day I’m not upset about playing time, I’m not upset about stats. We wanted to get two big wins last week and we didn’t get them. That’s all my focus is on.” The Buckeye starters this season — senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., junior guard Shannon Scott, junior forward

LaQuinton Ross and junior center Amir Williams — are the top five players in points and minutes per game for OSU so far this season. Thompson, though, has been the sixth man — sixth in points and minutes, and the only bench player to average more than 20 minutes of play a game — for the Buckeyes so far this season. Since Big Ten play began, Thompson has been up and down in terms of production. In the first conference game against Purdue, the junior from Chicago failed to score in 18 minutes played. Two games later Thompson would score a season high 18 points to help force overtime against the Spartans. In the Buckeyes fourth consecutive loss (68-62 against Nebraska) Thompson would score nine points, good for fourth on the team. Although he is coming off the bench, Thompson said his role has not been altered significantly. “I don’t think it’s changed much. I think whenever I get in the game I still look to do pretty much the same things; it’s just at this point I’m not starting,” Thompson said Dec. 17. “Last year I was starting, I think I’m playing pretty much the same amount of time I was last year, so I don’t think my role has changed that much.” Figuring out the team’s rotation off the bench has been an ongoing process based on game-by-game scenarios, Thompson said. “I think it’s a combination of a few things: one, who’s playing well,

Buckeyes ‘really close’ to hitting stride in new Big Ten grant miller Lantern reporter miller.5617@osu.edu The key to competing in a new conference is about adjusting to a new environment. For the Ohio State men’s hockey team, that means getting used to playing quality Big Ten opponents in what is the conference’s first season. Sophomore forward Anthony Greco got his first taste of what life in the conference would be like when he entered Yost Ice Arena to face Michigan in OSU’s first-ever Big Ten hockey game in November. “You walk in with the cameras and media around and you can just tell that the buzz is enhanced a bit,” Greco said. “(The Big Ten) is something that I’m excited to be a part of and that our team is excited to be a part of.” The attention and excitement that preceded the start of Big Ten play has been replaced by fierce competition between talented teams. The Buckeyes are six games into their conference schedule, posting a record of 1-4-1 after two losses to No. 1 Minnesota over the weekend. The Golden Gophers are one of three Big Ten teams ranked in the top 15 in the nation, along with Wisconsin and Michigan. OSU coach Steve Rohlik hasn’t been surprised by the toughness of the

Freshman defenseman Drew Brevig (4) strikes the puck during a game against Michigan State Jan. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. The teams tied, 1-1. schedule his team has played thus far. “It’s exactly how I expected it to go, to be honest,” Rohlik said. “The defining thing (about playing in the conference) is knowing that you have to play your best every night.” Despite only winning once against a conference opponent, OSU has been close in all of its games. Three of their four defeats

have been by a differential of one goal. With little margin for error, Rohlik said the Buckeyes must be as focused as possible. “It’s going to be tight every game, and it’s going to come down to which team makes the fewest mistakes,” Rohlik said. “You’ve got to take care of the little things because they could end up being the difference in a game.”

One player who has really felt the impact of playing against Big Ten opponents is freshman goalie Matt Tomkins. He made eight starts in non-conference play before getting injured Nov. 9 against Niagara. “Every Big Ten game has been exciting,” Tomkins said. “I’m just glad to be a part of it and to do everything I can to help the guys get some points.” He returned in time for the start of the Buckeyes’ first home conference series against Michigan State Jan. 10, making three starts since coming back. Tomkins said he was happy to come back just as the bulk of conference play began. Now that the Buckeyes have gotten their feet under them and competed at the same level as the teams they’ve faced, Tomkins said it’s time for OSU to start making an upward climb in the standings. “We’re really close (to winning games in the Big Ten),” Tomkins said. “Everybody really buys in and gets on the same page, so I think we’ll be able to make a run.” This weekend will be another test for the Buckeyes (11-8-1, 1-4-1) as they hit the road to face No. 9 Wisconsin (13-6-1, 4-2-0). Friday’s game in Madison, Wisc., is set to start at 9 p.m., while Saturday’s matchup is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Then-freshman attacker Carter Brown passes the ball during a game against Marquette Feb. 23 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU won, 18-8.

Freshmen players scored five of Ohio State’s 13 goals in the first men’s lacrosse game of 2014. Freshman attacker JT Blubaugh scored two goals and added an assist Saturday as the No. 7 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team held on to beat Canadian prep-school Hill Academy, 13-11. Playing in their first game since the fall, the Buckeyes found themselves down early as Nolan Apers scored 28 seconds into the game for Hill Academy. A pair of juniors turned things around for the Buckeyes as attacker Reegan Comeault and midfielder Jesse King scored three straight goals to help OSU take a 3-1 lead after the first quarter. However, Hill Academy would not back down as Jake Cook scored a man-down goal late in the third quarter and the Buckeyes found themselves trailing, 8-7. But freshman midfielder Sean Giampietro didn’t let the Buckeyes trail for long as the Garnet Valley, Pa. native scored just more than a minute later to tie the game. “Sean this past week has really started to blossom,� OSU coach Nick Myers said. “Getting a chance to play as much as he did today, he will take a lot out of this opportunity.� Junior midfielder David Planning, who tallied 17 goals last season, scored

the Buckeyes’ second goal in 40 seconds to give OSU a lead it would not relinquish. After the game, Myers credited Hill Academy for traveling from Canada to take on the Buckeyes, saying it gave his team a good challenge. “I have to credit The Hill Academy for coming here,â€? Myers said. “That’s a very organized group. They gave us a very good look, those are some very skilled players ‌ I’m happy we got challenged the way we did.â€? Despite holding on and getting the victory, senior defenseman Dominic Imbordino said OSU still has work to do, especially in regards to discipline, as the team was called for eight penalties. “It’s a point of emphasis for us to stay out of the box,â€? Imbordino said. “I feel like we could have done a better job with that today.â€? Still, four different freshman scored a goal for the Buckeyes, an opportunity senior defenseman Darius Bowling said will help them later in the season. “I wish I would have had an opportunity like this when I was a freshman,â€? Bowling said. “It was definitely good to get out here in an actual game and get that experience.â€? Myers said the starters will open up their next exhibition game, but he is more focused on the team improving as a whole. “We are trying to get better from A to Z,â€? Myers said. “This game was certainly a good first step for us.â€? The Buckeyes will host their second of three exhibition games on Saturday, when the Navy Midshipmen are scheduled to come to Columbus. Game time is set for 12 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Sherman interview product of passion, love for game of football Sports Editor eric Seger seger.25@osu.edu

Sadly, it’s getting to the end of yet another football season, and as much as that reality hurts, conference championship weekend offered plenty of reasons for why America’s love affair with the sport is so great. Among those reasons is Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who made an outstanding play on San Francisco’s final drive, tipping a pass from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick intended for wide receiver Michael Crabtree away and into the hands of teammate linebacker Malcolm Smith for a

game-sealing interception. Sherman then proceeded to deliver a very loud, rambunctious interview to FOX’s Erin Andrews during the postgame celebration on the field in Seattle. “I’m the best corner in the game,� Sherman yelled, proceeding to claim that this is what happens when you put a receiver against him who can’t hang with his talent.

Sherman offered an explanation Monday on Peter King from SI’s Monday Morning Quarterback. He defended what he did, and addressed “those who would call me a thug or worse‌â€? on social media. But aren’t we missing the point here? Sherman — who graduated from Stanford by the way — made one helluva play, his team is going to Super Bowl XLVIII, and the man was just passionately sharing his thoughts on what he did because he was upset with the way Crabtree handled the situation. Crabtree shoved Sherman’s helmet away when he tried to talk to the wide receiver. Where’s the shame in that? Sherman is widely known as the best defensive back in the league, plays on the league’s top defense and backed up what he said. He has earned the right to talk trash, especially if Crabtree did — as Sherman claimed according to a report from The Seattle Times — attempt to start a fight with the defensive back last summer at a charity event in Arizona. Crabtree offered his own rationale to what happened at the end of the game, saying Sherman “didn’t make any other plays in the gameâ€? aside from when he denied the receiver the chance to win the game for San Francisco.

sports Late rally again not enough as OSU falls to Iowa, 81-74 JAMES GREGA JR. Lantern reporter grega.9@osu.edu Climbing out of a 17-point hole against Iowa Sunday proved to once again be too big a task for the Ohio State women’s basketball team to handle as it lost its second straight game in conference play. Despite allowing 49 first half points to the Hawkeyes (15-5, 3-3), the Buckeyes (12-9, 2-3) made a late run in the second half and cut the Iowa lead to two with just over six minutes to play only to come up short, eventually falling 81-74. This seems to be a recurring trend for the Buckeyes, who have been outscored by a total of 25 points in the first half of Big Ten games this season. The first half hole proved to be too deep to get out of, OSU coach Kevin McGuff said following the game. “You spend so much energy climbing back in the game … we wore ourselves down,” McGuff said. “We could not make a couple key plays at the end.” The Buckeyes are 3-8 this season when trailing at halftime. A lack of attention to detail is what contributed to the slow start against the Hawkeyes, sophomore guard Ameryst Alston said after the loss.

“It was just more focus, discipline and concentration in the second half,” Alston said. “You cannot spot a good team 17 points.” Although the Buckeyes have not excelled in the first half in their losses this season, they are a promising 9-1 when leading at the half, something they have not done since leading Indiana 39-29 at the break Jan. 11. OSU did, however, find its offensive touch in Sunday’s loss, shooting 49.2 percent and scoring 42 points in the paint. A big part of the second half comeback was senior center Ashley Adams, who scored all eight of her points in the second half. “Ashley is working really hard down there,” senior guard Martina Ellerbe said following the loss. “It is really great to see her get rewarded.” With the second half of the season winding down and just 11 games remaining, McGuff hopes his team can build off of the successful second half against Iowa. “We showed tremendous resolve,” McGuff said. “Hopefully we can take away that if we just play like that for closer to 40 minutes … the results are going to be what we want.” The road ahead does not get any easier for the Buckeyes as they are scheduled to travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on archrival Michigan (13-5, 4-1) Thursday at 7 p.m.

foul trouble, stuff like that, and then also our opponent. We’ve had some success the past couple of seasons with a small ball lineup. Then we tried to go to the small ball lineup versus Michigan State and we couldn’t rebound; we didn’t have some success we had in the past so we went back to Amir and he really produced for us in that lineup,” Thompson said. “Iowa would have been a tough game to go small ball against because they have so much size and athleticism as a team. So I think it’s a combination of a few things. It’s just about being ready to play when you’re number is called and execute with whatever group of five we have on the court.” Matta said the changing rotations during game is not likely to go away anytime soon. “At this stage, so much of it is simply predicated on who’s playing well and when they’re playing well, why they’re playing well,” Matta said. “There’s no mistaking, when everybody is playing good — not great, playing good — we’re a much better basketball team. And I think that’s the thing that getting these guys to understand.” Although his play has fluctuated, Matta said he wants Thompson to shoot more often instead of passing up open opportunities. “I want Sam shooting the right shot in terms of his release, his follow through,” Matta said. “But yeah we need scoring and he’s shown throughout the course of his career this year that he can have some big nights.” Next up the Buckeyes are set to take on Illinois (13-6, 2-4) at the Schottenstein Center Thursday at 7 p.m.

we needed to work on, and in practice the whole week we just worked on those things, and during the game this weekend it definitely showed,” junior middle blocker Dustan Neary said. Friday against Lees-McCrae, OSU was in control from the outset and dominated, winning the three games by scores of 25-12, 25-12 and 25-14. Lutz led the way against the Bobcats, tallying 11 kills. The Buckeyes held Lees-McCrae to a -.133 hitting percentage. OSU has some new faces this season, two of them being redshirt-freshman middle blocker Driss Guessous and Neary, who transferred from Moorpark Community College this year. Neary said getting a chance to play the first home matches of his OSU career was special. “You work really hard in practice to be able to play during the games, and to have that experience on your own court was really cool,” Neary said. Friday, Guessous totaled five kills and five blocks. Guessous said it is “awesome” to be considered a substantial player in the game, and he hopes to be a part of future victories this season. Neary contributed three kills and three blocks Friday night and chipped in eight kills Saturday, which helped the Buckeyes get their second win of the season. “It is cool to know the rest of your team trusts you enough,” Neary said. Up next, OSU is scheduled to travel to Quincy, Ill., to take on the Quincy Hawks (2-1, 0-0) Friday. The match is set to begin at 8 p.m.

In the NFL, players jaw at each other all the time — it’s part of the game. It’s part of why the fans love it. Arguably the best athletes in the world play the game, driven by competition and the utmost desire to win. Sherman’s 30-second interview was just a tidbit of great television. Twitter exploded, and as Sherman mentions in his Monday Morning Quarterback piece, people fired racial slurs at the All-Pro. The NFC Championship was a great game, played with what was clearly passion and determination by both sides. Sherman spoke his mind and you can choose whom to believe, either him or Crabtree, but you can’t deny what Sherman did to help his team win the game. Because after all, isn’t it just a game?
