Ohio State recently invested tens of millions of dollars into a venture capital firm, though many details of the deal remain unclear. OSU invested roughly $50 million into Drive Capital, which was launched by Mark Kvamme earlier this year, according to reports by The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Venture capital firms invest money into eary-stage startup companies. These type of investments are typically seen as high-risk, high-reward. Questions related to the investment, including where the funds for the investment came from and what oversights were put in place, remain unanswered by university officials. OSU’s Office of Business and Finance referred The Lantern to assistant vice president for media and public relations Gayle Saunders. The Lantern filed a public records request for the contract between OSU and Drive Capital Thursday.

the investment didn’t bother her. According to its website, Drive Capital “invests in innovative technology, health care and consumer companies in the Midwest.” Representatives from Drive Capital did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Lantern via email Monday. Kvamme acknowledged that an agreement exists between OSU and Drive Capital in an email to The Plain Dealer. “We believe in the opportunity in Ohio and the Midwest to create worldchanging technology companies. It is important that people here understand our goals and objectives for the region,” he said in the email. The company has so far invested in Roadtrippers, a Web-based road trip planning platform, and CrossChx, a company specializing in preventing medical identity fraud. Some students said it was smart for OSU to invest in Drive Capital, a firm that invests money into small businesses.

US-China relations ‘key to peace and stability’ DANIEL BENDTSEN Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org
A Pretty Reckless show
Lead singer of The Pretty Reckless and former ‘Gossip Girl’ star, Taylor Momsen, is set to bring her band to Columbus.
As the relationship between China and the U.S. evolves, how the two will work together on a global scale is becoming increasingly important. “As we look to the future, the key question is ‘Can the U.S. and China work together to solve the world’s important challenges despite different economic systems and divergent views on such matters as democracy, religious freedom, civil liberties and the rule of law?’” former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said during an event about the U.S.-China relationship Monday. “In my view, this is certainly possible, so long as we recognize our disagreements and core differences with maturity, confront our challenges directly, and have leaders on both sides that are committed to this relationship.” The seventh annual China Town Hall, during which Ohio State and 65 other venues hosted local speakers Monday in a two-hour event, featured a webcast discussion on the subject of U.S.-China relations between Albright in Washington, D.C., and Stephen Orlins, president of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. “U.S.-China relations are the defining relationship of the 21st century, and getting that relationship right is the key to peace and stability throughout the world,” Orlins said. On OSU’s campus, a few dozen students and others gathered at the Mershon Center for International Security Studies to watch the discussion and hear from former American diplomat Lloyd Neighbors, who spoke about his time in China before fielding questions from the audience. Compared to the fear some Americans have of
RYAN ROBEY / For The Lantern
Lloyd Neighbors, former minister counselor for Public Affairs at the US Embassy in Beijing, spoke at the Mershon Center for International Security Studies Oct. 28 about the time he spent working in China. China’s swift economic rise, Neighbors spoke of the relationship in a much more lighthearted tone, keeping the audience engaged with quips and recollections about the challenges of diplomacy between the two world powers. Neighbors recounted his four-decade tenure in China that left him with a catalogue of behind-thescenes stories about U.S.-China affairs, like former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s propensity for
rambling on with personal anecdotes while ambassadors tried to brief him about the country. Despite concern from the public, Neighbors told The Lantern before the event that China’s rise is unlikely to create major economic problems for the U.S. “It’s possible, but trade partners always have all

BROOKE SAYRE Lantern reporter email@example.com The unemployment rate for students graduating with a bachelor’s degree remains low and the certification comes with a better paycheck, however student debt continues to anchor those graduates down. Some Ohio State students and administrators, though, think a college education is worth it despite unanswered questions about affordability and access. According to the Institute of Education Sciences, young adults with higher education corresponded with higher average earnings in 2011 data. About 70 percent of the class of 2013, however, graduated with debt, according to a study done by Fidelity Investments. At OSU’s Columbus campus, about 58 percent of 2011 graduates had student debt, according to the most recent data from the Institute for College Access and Success, a nonprofit independent research organization. Higher pay and lower unemployment While the majority of students are graduating with debt, that they attended college at all often helps them find a job. In 2012, 8.3 percent of individuals with only a high school diploma were unemployed, according to

Bureau of Labor Statistics employment projections. Those with a bachelor’s degree, though, faced a 4.5 percent unemployment rate. Some OSU students said they think the reduced unemployment rate makes college worth it. Olivia Whitman, a second-year in computer science and engineering, said the nearly 4 percent difference in unemployment between having a high school degree and having an undergraduate degree can effect a lot of people, regardless of debt. “Taking on a large amount of debt may stop people (from going to college),” Whitman said. The long-term benefits were something that Spencer Carli, a
KAYLA ZAMARY / Design editor second-year in computer science and engineering, said he took into consideration. “In the long-term, (debt can) pay itself off,” Carli said. “Assuming you can get a job and the job can aid you and it falls in line with what you’re interested in.” In September, the national unemployment rate of workers over the age of 16 was 7.2 percent, the lowest unemployment rate since late 2008, according to the BLS unemployment rate. College graduates are not only more likely to be able to find jobs, but also more likely to find higher-paying ones. The study by the Institute of Education Sciences found that young
adults, ages 25 to 34, with a high school diploma who were employed full time earned a median annual income of $29,950, while those with a bachelor’s degree or higher earned a median pay of $50,000. Carli said, though, even with just a high school diploma he was able to get a job working with a skill-based web design company while he attends OSU. “(I came to college) just to further my understanding of the complex side, to dive deeper,” Carli said. “If the general interest doesn’t require a college degree, (the degree is) not important.” Student debt Though education correlates with a higher salary, paying for that education can bind students with debt that will take a toll on their future bank accounts. For those college student who graduate with debt, the average debt is $35,200, including federal, state and private loans, in addition to money borrowed from family members and added up from credit cards, according to the Fidelity study. Comparatively, the average student debt of Ohio State main campus graduates was about $24,840 in 2011, according to the study by the Institute for College Access and Success.

campus OSU volunteers awarded for outreach to juvenile delinquents Michelle Fugate Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Every other weekend, some Ohio State students board a bus headed toward the Scioto Correctional Facility and the Circleville Juvenile Correctional Facility â€” but theyâ€™re just visiting. These students mentor juvenile delinquents. Buckeye REACH, which stands for â€œRelationships and Education in Action through Community and Hope,â€? is an Ohio State program comprised of about 30 students who visit correctional juvenile facilities every other Saturday to foster relationships with youth delinquents, while providing support and education to the children. Buckeye REACH earned the annual statewide ServeOhio â€“ the Ohio commission on service and volunteerism â€“ award for the groupâ€™s dedication to the community this October. Buckeye REACH was given the 2013 award for Outstanding Volunteer Group Oct. 22. The program began in August 2012, when Patricia Cunningham, OSU director of student engagement, brought to life an idea she had come up with in graduate school. Cunningham and a team of Buckeye REACH student workers sort through an average of 100 applications per year to build the team. Selected students then

During the visits, Buckeye REACH volunteers work with the youth as mentors. Book clubs, games and film series are just a few of the programs offered at the facilities. Some of the OSU students also serve as pen pals for the youth. Mary Cannon, ServeOhioâ€™s program
development evaluation officer, said in an email the ServeOhio awards recognize self-nominated Ohioans who make contributions to their communities through service and volunteerism. A $1,000 cash award is given to the organization that benefited from the winnerâ€™s service. In this case, those organizations were the Scioto Correctional Facility and the Circleville Juvenile Correctional Facility.
Tiffany Allensworth, a fourth-year in sociology and Buckeye REACH team member, said the work the youth do is notable. â€œThe (ServeOhio) award went to our program, but our youth are just as worthy of receiving it for the work they do on themselves, for opening up to us and for allowing us into their lives,â€? Allensworth said in an email. The Lantern wasnâ€™t permitted to speak to the youths involved in Buckeye REACH because of their disciplinary sentences. While the program has several goals, Cunningham said education is key focus. â€œEducation is the No. 1 thing that reduces recidivism, that is, the rate of returning to an institution of corrections,â€? she said in an email. â€œAll of the programming is designed to get the residents of the facilities to critically think, build self-efficacy and contribute on how to be a citizen.â€? The OSU students aim to educate the youth about life outside of the facility and to serve as a positive influence to help them plan for their lives when they resume normal routines after release. Cunningham said the Buckeye REACH program costs $15,000 yearly, funded by the Ohio Department of Youth Services to cover van rentals, background checks, materials, books and staff costs.
WexMed patient first in Ohio to receive breakthrough breathing aid Sam Harrington Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com

Dr. Jerold Reynolds examines Mary Pat Murry during a checkup Oct. 25 at the Wexner Medical Center Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza.
For one Ohio woman, a surgery at the Wexner Medical Center means she can breathe a little easier. Mary Pat Murry, a 49-year-old resident of London, Ohio, was the Medical Centerâ€™s first patient with Lou Gehrigâ€™s disease to receive a diaphragmatic pacemaker this summer. Lou Gehrigâ€™s disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a fatal disease that attacks motor neurons that connect the brain to muscles. Over time, ALS causes people to lose the ability to move, speak, swallow and breathe. A pacemaker strengthens the diaphragm and allows patients to breathe more easily. â€œI have a lot more energy, I can yell at the dogs a lot better â€Ś I get hiccups again independently,â€? she said. â€œAnd just breathing, I feel better now. I can tell Iâ€™m breathing better.â€? Breathing for patients like Murry has traditionally been aided by a cumbersome ventilator, called BiPAP mask, said Dr. Stephen Kolb, a neurologist with the Medical Center, but the mask comes with inconveniences. â€œWhen youâ€™re wearing the (BiPAP) mask, you canâ€™t talk â€” you can but no one hear you â€” you canâ€™t drink or eat. With the pacer, I can take care of all that,â€? Murry said. The pacemaker allows patients to be able to use the mask less often,
but as ALS progresses, the diaphragm will become less and less affected by treatment, even with the diaphragmatic pacemaker. At that point, those affected have to choose between going onto full-time breathing support or not, in which case the patient would die. Murry, who was a nurse, said knowing the implications of ALS and then being diagnosed with the disease was especially difficult. â€œUnderstanding the disease process is, understanding about losing the muscle and (not) being able to feed yourself, being able to walk, you know, understanding that in a medical way and dealing with it emotional(ly) was hard,â€? Murry said. Kolb said the goal of the pacemaker is to provide patients with a high quality of life for as long as possible. â€œThe hope here is that we just helping breathing and helping comfort, thatâ€™s obviously what the goal is, but the ultimate goal is to prolong good quality of life with ALS and this may be a way to do that,â€? he said. Murry said she is hopeful the pacemaker will enable her to postpone full-time breathing support for the time being. â€œItâ€™s hard to imagine an ALS patient not needing other breathing support full-time. With the pacer, the hope is that thatâ€™s further down the road, so the life expectancy will go further,â€? she said. After her October checkup, her forced vital capacity, a measurement of how much air can be forcibly exhaled, had increased to 51 percent from 43 percent. While both numbers are significantly lower than the average force capacity, which is about 80 percent, the results show that the pacemaker has helped her.

Connection a goal for OSU student-driven site mario Robertson Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Though LinkedIn, Facebook and Carmen already allow students to connect with one another, as well as professors and potential employers, a few current and former Ohio State students have started a website they think fills a different void. BuckeyesConnect is a website that aims to allow students to collaborate on assignments, showcase their projects and talents and develop closer relationships with their professors, said Bunty Mistry, a recent OSU graduate in logistics and one of the founders of BuckeyesConnect. â€œAs college students â€Ś in the end what it comes down to is this little piece of paper called a rĂŠsumĂŠ that you present to employers,â€? Mistry said. â€œWe want to utilize social media and use it as a platform to showcase what students did in their classes and in college.â€? Karan Kareer, a third-year in management information systems and a founder of
We want to utilize social media and use it as a platform to showcase what students did in their classes and in college. Bunty Mistry Recent OSU graduate in logistics and a founder of BuckeyeConnect BuckeyesConnect said the website aims to fill an empty niche. â€œAt the moment, there is not any sort of websites or any sort of platform that exists exclusively for university students trying to look for jobs, internships and still have academic stuff at the same time,â€? Kareer said. â€œIt has a lot of features that include e-rĂŠsumĂŠs and students tutoring other students online which will help to raise the GPA of students.â€? The beta version of the BuckeyesConnect website is set to be made public in January and will only be open to those with OSU email
addresses, said Sid Agrawal, a third-year in finance and a founder of BuckeyesConnect. The founders, though, did not initially receive a positive reaction from the professors they approached, Agrawal said. â€œWhen we ran it by professors initially, they thought our idea was sort of another Carmen,â€? Agrawal said. â€œThat is actually not what we are trying to go for.â€? Agrawal said BuckeyesConnect intends to put an emphasis on students working together to get help with assignments. There has been some investment interest generated by the idea, Kareer said, adding the founders think they will later use advertisements as a means of making a profit. â€œI donâ€™t want to give out too many details, but â€Ś basically we have two investors, one of them is confirmed and the other one we are still talking to,â€? Kareer said. Mistry said the founders are currently more focused on making the website available to students, than attracting investors.

“It’s good to see they’re interested in small business,” said Matt Esterkamp, a second-year in business. “That’s where a lot of jobs come from, small business.” OSU President Emeritus E. Gordon Gee said he feels the investment was an important one in a statement to The Lantern about the investment Thursday, sent via Jason Shough, an OSU senior policy analyst who works with Gee. “I am so glad that the priority on investing in education, research and job creation that I championed as president has continued. The current administration’s support for innovation, as evidenced by its decision to invest in Drive Capital — which I enthusiastically supported — enhances creative opportunities for students, faculty and staff,” the statement read. “It is my hope that such approaches can become a model for other higher education institutions to follow.” Gee knew Kvamme before working with him on the investment. At one point, Kvamme headed JobsOhio, a private state development agency that has been a key initiative for Gov. John Kasich. Gee is a board member of that agency. OSU invested in the firm shortly after Gee announced he was retiring from his role as

I see it as a positive one, binding us to one another,” he said. Instead, the biggest challenges for the two nations’ relationships lies in how they handle disputes regarding other countries. Like Neighbors, Albright said the relationship between the U.S. and China is generally positive, and the major concerns stressing the relationship are China’s economic imbalance, its tightening of free expression and its controversy over currency exchanges. Albright said the world needs China to step up on the world stage. Although the U.S. is the “indispensable nation,” Albright said the issues of terrorism and nuclear proliferation require input from all major powers. Max Mauerman, a third-year in political science
Degrees from 1A Whitman said taking on college debt is worth it if a student’s major is something he or she is interested in. “I came to college to gain knowledge that I wouldn’t have been able to get without going to college,” Whitman said. “It’s worth it.” OSU’s tuition for the 2013-14 school year was $10,010 for in-state students per semester and $25,726 for non-Ohio residents, according to the OSU Undergraduate Admissions website. Those costs are higher than the national average for public universities, which is $8,893 and $22,203, respectively, according to College Board. Looking forward Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced Oct. 21 OSU President Emeritus E. Gordon Gee is set to play a large role in a state higher education initiative focused on affordability. “I’m going to take on a major initiative of the state, talking about what I think is the burning issue of today, and that is how does one increase quality of higher education and how does one do it in a way that its cost effective and affordable for students,” Gee said in an interview with The Lantern Oct. 21. “We know how to increase quality, we know how to cut budgets, but we don’t know how to bring the concept of cost and quality together, so that’s what we’re really trying to do with this.” OSU Interim President Joseph Alutto said there are also university initiatives being taken to keep OSU’s costs down.
Patient from 2A While the pacemaker is not experimental, more studies need to be done to be able to determine with whom it should be used. The Medical Center is set to be a part of a national study aimed at determining the pacemaker’s use, which is scheduled to start in 2014, said Dr. Jerold Reynolds, a neurologist and level one researcher. Murry was selected because she was already a patient at the Medical Center and Reynolds felt she was a fitting candidate.
Connection from 2A “What we really want to do is get the website up first and have a really good presentable website and business plan and get everything organized,” Mistry said. “When we are ready to take it the next step forward, that’s going to be when we need money. As of now, funding has not been a big issue.” The founders of BuckeyesConnect have talked to some employers, including Coca-Cola, that said that they would be open to looking at the site to learn more about students, Kareer said. Minstry said the website aims to show off different strengths of a student. “We should not be tied to this number 4.0 (GPA),” Mistry said. “A student with a 3.2 (GPA) probably is just a bad test taker, but they work their butts off on projects and are an amazing team player. All of that stuff sort of gets put in the shadows and no one really gets to find out about that.” Some students said how effective the website is will depend on the users it draws. “When you meet someone in class and set up a time to study with them, you know the person and who they are,” said Andrew Mendel, a first-year in mechanical engineering. “If you
university president June 4, The Plain Dealer reported. Gee’s announcement came days after controversial remarks he made at a Dec. 5 OSU Athletic Conference meeting came under public scrutiny. Comments, which he later called “inappropriate,” about Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference in particular brought national attention. The investment also followed a provision approved by OSU’s Board of Trustees at an Aug. 30 meeting that brought together OSU’s two investment portfolios: a long-term investment pool and the university’s operating funds. The provision also allows the president, provost and senior vice president for Business and Finance in consultation with the Chair of the Finance Committee and the Board of Trustees to invest up to $100 million in funds at their discretion, “but in the best interests of the university,” according to minutes from the meeting. Interim President Joseph Alutto, Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph Steinmetz and Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Geoff Chatas currently hold these positions, respectively. At the end of the 2013 fiscal year, the university’s long-term investment pool totaled more than $3.1 billion, and its operating funds were at nearly $2.9 billion, according to Board minutes.
and economics, said he came to the event after getting involved in international affairs through the OSU Collegiate Council on World Affairs. “The Albright thing was interesting, but I feel like it was nothing I hadn’t heard before. I thought the question and answer with Mr. Neighbors was actually more interesting though, and to get the chance to talk to someone in person about that,” Mauerman said. Jeff Chan, assistant director of OSU’s Institute for Chinese Studies, told The Lantern there were no costs to OSU for the event, aside from snacks provided to attendees. Chan said he hopes Neighbors’ presentation gave the audience a credible perspective on topics concerning China. “Not everyone can ask Madeleine Albright questions, but at least there’s a local speaker who can hopefully illuminate issues that they have concerning China,” Chan said.
“Any institution as large as Ohio State has areas where it can do a better job of restraining and controlling cost issues. It’s just simply the normal process of life and development of any organization. And universities are organizations,” Alutto said during an interview with The Lantern Sept. 23. “I’m sure that — I know that — there (are) areas where we could do things better and more efficiently, which means we take some of the pressure off the affordability question.” Provost and Executive Vice President Joseph Steinmetz said it’s important to make sure OSU is accessible to students from a variety of backgrounds. “We have to control tuition and make it affordable so that this university doesn’t just become set up for those that are wealthier or well-to-do, that this is accessible for all excellent students,” he said during an interview with The Lantern Oct. 8. “We have to come up with, I think, novel ways to fund student education, that isn’t on the backs of tuition.” Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp said he’s passionate about affordability and reducing debt so students aren’t burdened after graduation. Stepp said USG is working on a commission to present to the university focused on issues including helping students plan for unexpected costs, educating students on financial decision-making and working on making college affordable. “We want to make sure we make college as affordable as possible,” Stepp said. “(We want to) limit the amount of student loans being taken out.”
While research is not conclusive, patients that had the BiPAP machine and the pacemaker, in three clinical trials, lived an average of 16 months longer or reached the point where they could choose if they wanted the full-time breathing support, Reynolds said. “It appears to be very helpful for the quality of life of the patient and hopefully extends the life of the patient, but the disease unfortunately still marches on,” he said.
ask a physics question on this site, a person that is not even in physics could be answering your question as a joke. It could end up hurting you more than helping you.” Mendel added that he believes students learn more effectively when they are working directly with others rather than through a website. “You don’t learn as much over the Internet,” Mendel said. “You learn more from a personal interaction with students so that you are able to better see your mistakes and how to fix them.” Michael Wilkinson, a first-year in civil engineering, disagreed and said students can learn regardless of the setting. “Anytime you work with other people on an assignment, you can bring up your GPA,” Wilkinson said. “It just depends on how and how often a student uses the website.” Mistry said the founders hope to expand to other campuses later on. “Five or 10 years from now, the ideal situation would be that campuses across the nation are connected,” Mistry said. “You can collaborate with students so students in Ohio and students in California that are working on the same thing can showcase and collaborate on their ideas across campuses.”

The Pretty Reckless’ lead singer Taylor Momsen is ready for the band to break out of the shadow of her previous long-term gig. The former “Gossip Girl” actress believes the days of the band being defined by her old show instead of its music are over. “I think that tide has definitely turned. The show’s over. It’s been over for years,” Momsen said in a one-on-one interview. “I feel like the interviews have switched from about me and the show to about the band.” The band is slated to make a stop in Columbus Tuesday at A&R Music Bar, located at 391 Neil Ave. The success of the band’s debut album might speak to its individual identity as 2010’s “Light Me Up” charted in the U.S. and overseas, even reaching No. 1 on the UK’s rock charts for six consecutive weeks. Soon after the band finished up its worldwide tour in support of the inaugural record, it began recording the follow-up and upcoming album, “Going to Hell.” The music video for its title track, “Going to Hell,” was released Oct. 16 and has more than 1 million views on YouTube, but has not come without its share of controversy. The racy video has been criticized for its sexual yet biblical notions, including a semi-nude Momsen in an Eve-like pose holding a snake and an apple. Momsen, familiar with the media attention, doesn’t give any merit to the negative feedback, and she said the scenery was well within the boundaries of the message. “I don’t think about it and I don’t read it,” Momsen said of the criticism. “It was based around the seven deadly sins. It was just based around the song, so it isn’t a big deal.” Controversy aside, the band looks to deliver another successful record with its sophomore effort. The new album, which is slated to be released in early 2014, is still going to capture the essence of The Pretty Reckless, but it will have a different sound from “Light Me Up,” Momsen said. She also said “Going to Hell” will have a more stripped-down feeling for the band. They have gained a tighter bond from the years of touring and displayed that continuity in the studio. “It’s a lot heavier than ‘Light Me Up’ was,” Momsen said. “It’s just two guitars, a bass, drums and vocals. It’s what we sound like.” Besides Momsen on vocals, The Pretty Reckless also includes guitarist Ben Phillips, Mark Damon on bass and drummer Jamie Perkins. She also likens the new album to a classic record to play from start to finish — similar to a Pink Floyd album, Momsen said.

Taylor Momsen, former actress on ‘Gossip Girl’ and lead singer of The Pretty Reckless, who is slated to perform Oct. 29 at A&R Music Bar. She said she wants the fans to be able to view the album as more of an experience than most others. “Every time you listen to it you hear something new,” Momsen said. “Like you can find new message or meaning behind it each time.” PromoWest Live marketing director Marissa Luther was positive about the upcoming performance in light of past experience with the band. “I think this is the third or fourth time the band has played the venue and all the other times seemed to go pretty well,” Luther said. “The fans seemed like they have a good time with them.” For anyone who has never heard The Pretty Reckless live, Momsen said fans should prepare for an old-school style of rock concert. “It’s a loud guitar driven ‘ruckus-y’ rock and roll band,” Momsen said. “What you see is what you get.” Doors are set to open at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $15.
Indie band Grouplove to raise environmental awareness with Campus Consciousness Tour Shannon Clary Lantern reporter email@example.com The band’s name is Grouplove, but along with a few other bands, they also aim to ignite love for the environment. The Campus Consciousness Tour is set to stop at the Bluestone in Columbus Wednesday, featuring alternative band Grouplove with special guests The Knocks and Saints of Valory. The tour, which aspires to entertain and also educate students, has been around “a good five years,” said Howard Cusack, a producer and booking agent who helped start the initiative. “We wanted to stimulate discussion about improving environmental issues on campuses as well as social issues facing college students,” he said. The tour is powered by Reverb, a nonprofit organization based in Maine that works to make concert tours as environmentally friendly as possible. “It is a concert with a cause,” Cusack said. “We discuss everything from gay rights to getting out the vote.” Booths are to be set up during the day in high-traffic areas of Columbus and manned by student volunteers, he said. At these booths, students can receive handouts and awareness information on this year’s focuses, environmental sustainability and preserving rainforests. The bands that are invited on the tour, Cusack explained, are groups that “put on good shows” and “help students get excited about these issues.” Grouplove, the tour’s headliner, is a “very (environmentally) aware band” that is “into reducing their carbon footprint on their tours,” Cusack said. “The most important part of the tour is raising awareness about all of the things that we can do daily to

Grouplove is scheduled to play Oct. 30 at the Bluestone as part of the Campus Consciousness Tour. create a greener environment, particularly at our colleges where we can use education to bring eco-issues to the forefront,” Grouplove drummer Ryan Rabin said in an email. “If we can use our music to bring students out to have a good time, and help raise their awareness about their environment at the same time, then that is a successful show that we can be proud of.” The members of Grouplove met at an artist retreat
on the island of Crete, Greece, about four years ago, Rabin said. “There were a lot of artists in the village but the five of us were drawn to each other instantly and we became our own little group within the village,” he said. Members of the band include keyboardist Hannah Hooper, guitarists Christian Zucconi and Andrew Wessen and bassist Sean Gadd.
A year after the retreat, the five reunited in Los Angeles to work on their first EP as a group. “Even then, we didn’t plan on being in a band, but ultimately we couldn’t deny it anymore and made the decision to do it for real,” Rabin said. The band released its second full-length album “Spreading Rumors” in September. “We wanted to make a collection of songs that could continually change for fans in the same way that they change for us,” Rabin said. Saints of Valory is also set to play at the Bluestone Wednesday. “College kids are really alive,” lead vocalist and bassist Gavin Jasper said. “Playing for an alive audience is any band’s dream.” Other members of Saints of Valory include guitarist Godfrey Thomson, drummer Gerard Bouvier and keyboardist Stephen Buckle. Members of both bands expressed they were looking forward to returning to Columbus for the CCT. “We played at the LC before,” Jasper said. “It was one of the best shows. But this is our first time playing for the university. I think it will be a big party with great energy.” Rabin said the members of Grouplove have had similar experiences in Columbus. “We’ve done a few shows in Columbus and love the crowds in Ohio,” Rabin said. “One memorable show was with Cage the Elephant in Columbus. We’d never played there before, but the crowd was so amazing and we’ve been close friends with Cage ever since.” General admission for the concert is $25, and there is a $3 surcharge for those under 21 years of age. The Bluestone is located at 583 E. Broad St and doors open at 7 p.m.
[ a+e ] REVIEW
Coheed and Cambria bring C-Bus into alternate universe JAKE NILES For The Lantern firstname.lastname@example.org Claudio Sanchez’s thick, shoulder-length curly locks bounced to and fro as he gracefully sang lyrics and plucked away at his guitar. Sometimes, it smothered his entire face as tufts of it puffed in and out with the lyrics, others flailed chaotically back and forth during a guitar solo. The Coheed and Cambria frontman has ambition just as massive as his hair, and it reaches into an alternate universe that he created to share with the world. The progressive rock band shared its many concept albums with Columbus Sunday, performing about an 80-minute set inside at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion. Many bands in the past have created unique concept albums that have permanently put a stamp in music history: Pink Floyd had “Dark Side of The Moon,” The Who had “Tommy” and, of course, who could forget the famous “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” from The Beatles? While these great rock bands shared their themes with the world through only one or two albums, Coheed and Cambria take it a step further. The group’s entire discography is one big concept. Each album tells a continuing science fiction story written by vocalist Sanchez called “The Amory Wars” that has not only spanned its studio albums, but has been translated into a comic book series and novel with Sanchez at the helm. The series follows the journey of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon, who are husband and wife set out on a struggle against Wilhelm Ryan, the evil Supreme Tri-Mage of the fictional galaxy Heaven’s Fence. The amount of depth and personality Sanchez pours into his characters reflects from his personal life with his parents and relationships, and translates further into the emotional power of his music. Sanchez’s singing style has a striking similarity to Rush lead singer Geddy Lee in the sense that he sings unusually high-pitched with sheer power and explosiveness. His brilliant creative mind, combined with Travis Stever on guitar, Josh Eppard on drums and Zach Cooper on bass, brilliantly brings the fictional universe of Heaven’s Fence to life. Based in science fiction, many of their songs began with some sort of futuristic recording or take-off countdown. This gave the audience a great opportunity to build the anticipation by counting down the seconds until a song would metaphorically lift off. Silver human busts and different stage props littered the stage, giving the show a very “alien” fee. Sanchez grabbed one of the busts at one point and used it to strum his guitar, resulting in quickly broken strings flying in all directions. The band’s latest album, “The Afterman: Descension” concentrates on the character Sirius Amory. Tracks like “Gravity’s Union” express strong character emotion, while “Dark Side of Me” and its slow graceful tune eerily match a character’s descent into madness. Sometimes the story can be hard to decipher, but if tackled in chronological order, the masterwork of Sanchez can come fully to life. Instrumentally, Coheed and Cambria delivered a powerful performance. Sanchez and Stever dueled guitars, bounced around stage and screamed emotionally as crowd surfers never ceased to end.

Coheed and Cambria performed Oct. 27 at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion. The band concluded with its famous song “Welcome Home,” in which Sanchez played a doublenecked guitar, in what resembled a Led Zeppelin-like ballad. During the lengthy solo, he played behind his head, with his teeth and ran wildly around stage pumping up the fans. Sanchez had to stop and tame his hair halfway through the set, most likely because of the extreme temperature under his lion’s mane of a hairstyle after delivering such an epic performance. In addition to Coheed and Cambria, indie bands I the Mighty and Balance And Composure also played at the show. When discussing his Keywork forearm tattoo, which was a symbol used to represent the fictional universe created by Sanchez, I the Mighty singer Brent Walsh said, “This is the first thing I deemed OK to be permanently on my body.”

Do it yourself: get creative with an original, homemade costume this Halloween season BREANNA SOROKA Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com With Halloween coming up this week, many people are scrambling for last minute costume ideas or the missing pieces of their almost-perfect costumes. Buying a pre-made getup can easily drain your bank account, and it will likely fall apart before you’re even able to get your money’s worth. Why not show off your creative side this year with a fabulous do-it-yourself costume? Chances are you already own plenty of basic pieces that can be transformed into something great. Read on to get some general ideas and those creative juices flowing. Oh, deer You can become this adorable animal — or any woodland creature, really — with a plain dress and some creative makeup. For a deer, just throw on a brown sweater dress, black tights and black shoes. Then transform your face by lining your eyes with white liner, heavily bronzing your cheeks, and drawing a black nose on the tip of your own. You can then add some white spots to the apples of each cheek to emulate the speckling of a deer’s fur, and some nude lipstick to pull the whole look together. If you’re feeling up to it, you can even make your own deer ears with a headband and some brown felt; just cut and glue. This formula easily works for any other animals
you might be considering dressing up as: a rabbit, a cat or even a squirrel costume can all be well within your reach. ‘The Walking Dead’ Pop culture’s current obsession with zombies makes this costume all the more popular, but it’s still incredibly simple to put together. First, find some clothes that are already pretty worn and you don’t mind ruining, and slash them up. Next, you can use costume makeup to make yourself look like a human flesh-craving being. Use white makeup to make yourself as pale as possible, then use black to create a gaunt silhouette by swiping it directly under your cheekbones and on each side of your forehead, as well as around your eyes. When you think you look ghastly enough, add as much fake blood as your heart desires to your face, hands, clothes — you name it. Want to show off your creativity a little more? Go ahead and become a zombie ballerina, a zombie football player or any other zombie fill-in-the-blank you can think of. Depending on your resources, you can be as complex with this as you want. Rosie the Riveter Do you own a pair of blue jeans? Great, your costume is already halfway there. Now all you need is a red bandanna to tie your hair back and a navy button-up shirt to become this feminist icon. Adding some winged eyeliner and red lipstick easily completes this look. Some combat
boots add a lovely touch of toughness that exudes the general idea of Rosie even more — now maybe you won’t have to keep your arm bent to show off your guns all night like she does in the iconic picture. Jabbawockeez crew member Remember this insane dance group from the first season of MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew?” For many of the Jabbawockeez’s performances, members simply wore hoodies, sweatpants and other clothes they could dance in — but were considered such an iconic group on the show because of the plain white masks worn for every single performance. Since that mask is the most recognizable part of this costume, you can take absolute creative liberty with the rest of it. If you want to go with the real deal, wear baggy sweats tucked into high tops and an oversized T-shirt or hoodie. You can even make it a bit more feminine with sleek black leggings and a colored zip-up sweatshirt — this costume is really what you make it. Though you will have to purchase the mask (unless you already have one lying around), they can easily be found online for less than $20. Creating your costume this year doesn’t have to be stressful for your wallet — just work with some of the things you already own to create something amazing. Besides, being able to put something together with limited resources is a sign of a true sense of style.

With AMC’s show ‘The Walking Dead’ gaining popularity, opt for a zombie costume this Halloween.
Female-fronted band Tonight Alive to make stop in Columbus on first US headlining tour BREANNA SOROKA Senior Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Tonight Alive might be a female-fronted band, but don’t draw any conclusions too quickly. “People can look at it as its own genre, but being female-fronted isn’t a genre, it’s a dynamic,” Jenna McDougall, lead singer of Tonight Alive, said. “We break the mold by not paying attention to it, really … we’re just going out and playing music that makes us feel good and getting a message out there and connecting with people.” Tonight Alive is slated to appear at A&R Music Bar Wednesday as part of The Other Side Tour, the band’s first headlining tour in North America. McDougall said this tour is a new chapter for the band with new opportunities for it to grow. “It feels really good because every other tour that we’ve done here, we’ve really only been able to play for 30 to 35 minutes,” McDougall said. “So this is the first time that we can play to our fans and really give them a show. It’s really liberating to be able to play for an hour and get the new record out.” The band, which includes McDougall, guitarist Whakaio Taahi, guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cam Adler and drummer Matt Best, released “The Other Side” in September, a record McDougall said shows a change in the band’s overall sound. “I don’t think we’re pop-punk anymore,” McDougall said. “I think with ‘The Other Side,’ we’ve really become a rock band. At times, it’s quite dark musically, but still always melodic … We’re quite bipolar writers and I think it’s quite dynamic now. It’s really hard to put it under one category.”

Tonight Alive is slated to perform Oct. 30 at A&R Music Bar. From this new album comes four of the songs in Tonight Alive’s set — and these songs are the ones that get the most reaction from the audience, McDougall said. “They all seem to have a really powerful effect over the audience,” McDougall said. “’The Ocean’ is the first song in our set, so it’s the song that kind of eases everyone in … then there are songs like ‘The
Fire’ and ‘Lonely Girl’ and ‘Don’t Wish’ which people really seem to connect with. There’s a physical reaction to the songs, but there also seems to be a real emotional reaction to them as well.” In addition to Tonight Alive, the concert is scheduled to include supporting bands Echosmith, For The Foxes and The Downtown Fiction. The sounds of all these bands really help make the
show a complete package, McDougall said. “It’s quite a poppy lineup, and we’re one of the darker, heavier bands on the tour,” McDougall said. “It’s really contrasting to what we’ve done in the past. We did the Fearless Friends Tourwhere the bands were Blessthefall, The Word Alive and Motionless in White … it’s really fun to see the tables turn a little since our sound has developed.” Marissa Luther, marketing director for PromoWest Productions, said Tonight Alive’s developing sound is part of the reason the band was brought to Columbus. “We think they’re a great up-and-coming band, so we wanted to be one of the first people in Columbus to book them,” Luther said. Samantha Singer, a first-year in exploration, said even though she hasn’t heard of the band, she’d be interested in attending the show. “I really haven’t heard of them, but a lot of bands now are mostly male,” Singer said. “Especially in more hardcore bands, it’s nice to hear that there are females out there, so I’d be more interested.” McDougall said no audience member should feel left out at the show, since there’s such a variety both in the performers and in the songs. “I like to think there’s something for everyone,” McDougall said. “You do the heavy songs, you do the happy songs and you do the sad songs, and it’s just a matter of structuring them and making it a smooth-running show.” A&R Music Bar is located at 391 Neil Ave. Tickets for the show are $12 in advance, or $14 at the door. Doors are scheduled to open at 6 p.m.

Hyde: ‘I want teams to give us their best shot’ Eric Seger Sports editor email@example.com The road ahead is the only one on Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer’s mind these days. Meyer and the Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) are scheduled to travel to West Lafayette, Ind., Saturday to take on Purdue (1-6, 0-3). But even though the Boilermakers have defeated OSU in three out of its last four trips to Ross-Ade Stadium, Meyer said that’s not something he’s thinking about. “We’re just trying to get the win on the road at Purdue,” Meyer said Monday during a press conference. Purdue, who is led by a former Buckeye assistant, has not played since losing on the road to Michigan State Oct. 19, 14-0, and currently sits at the bottom of the Big Ten Leaders Division. The Boilermakers’ early struggles pushed the coaching staff to make major changes schematically on defense, Meyer said. “They changed — they were all 4-3 defense about three weeks ago before the Nebraska game, (and they) changed completely” Meyer said. “They’re now (a 3-4 defense). So that means they’re just going through some personnel issues and some scheme issues … We’re just trying to figure out what we’re going to see Saturday because it’s completely different from the first half of the season.” Although Purdue is currently on a five-game losing streak, junior tight end Jeff Heuerman said OSU shouldn’t struggle with finding the motivation to take on the Boilermakers. “Our coaching staff does a great job

Men’s hockey seeks revenge against BGSU daniel fyffe Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Coming off the momentum from a two-game sweep of Robert Morris over the weekend, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team is looking forward to a rematch against Bowling Green. The Falcons (2-1-2) and Buckeyes (2-3-0) meet Tuesday after BGSU managed to edge OSU, 4-3, when the two teams met Oct. 15 in Bowling Green for the non-conference matchup. The loss was part of an 0-3-0 start for OSU. Coach Steve Rohlik said despite the recent victories, the Buckeyes have areas in which they could improve. “We’ve got to work on our discipline and we’ve got to stay out of the box and special teams,” Rohlik said in a postgame interview Friday. Senior forward Travis Statchuk agreed, adding the season is still young and the team has a long way to go. “It’s a long year and it’s early … we’ve got some things to work on

OSU won, 5-3. and want to get better every day,” Statchuk said Friday. This time, OSU has home-ice advantage, and is looking to extend its winning streak to three games and grab a .500 overall record. The Buckeyes led the Oct. 15 game after two periods of the teams’
first bout, but the Falcons managed to put two unanswered goals in the back of the net early in the third period to secure a victory. Junior forward Max McCormick said Oct. 14 Bowling Green and OSU are “hard-nosed” and that the Oct. 15 matchup was going to be
An undefeated Rose Bowl appearance wouldn’t be so bad Since its first season in 1890 when it finished 1-3, the Ohio State football team has finished with an undefeated record 10 times. Of those 10 seasons, only four resulted in Tim Moody the Buckeyes email@example.com being named national champions. This season, it is quite possible that more than two teams will finish undefeated in the Football Bowl Subdivision. That means an undefeated Buckeye team, that currently sits at No. 4 in the BCS standings, will likely find itself on the outside looking in when it comes to the BCS National Championship Game. If that happens, and OSU wins the Big Ten, they will take part in “the granddaddy of them all,” the Rose Bowl. In years past, this level of competition would lead to an argument that the NCAA must adopt a playoff system, but they already have. While that system will not be in effect this season, the Buckeyes might just be better off with a trip to the Rose Bowl. Anyone who follows OSU even semi-closely remembers the last two times the Buckeyes had a shot at the crystal football. I have to remind you: One of those teams finished the regular season with an unblemished record, and the other lost once and stumbled into the game.
a battle. The same holds true for Tuesday. Freshman goalie Matt Tomkins, who started the season on the bench behind sophomore goalie Collin Olson, was brought in to take Olson’s place less than three minutes into the first match against Robert Morris. Tomkins recorded 26 saves against the Colonials to earn his first career win, and then followed it up with a 21-save victory the following night. Rohlik was impressed with the young goalie’s performance against the Colonials. “Well, I did think (Tomkins) did give a good effort all the way through. They got one on a power play (Friday) but that’s why it’s a team effort,” Rohlik said. “This doesn’t fall on (Olson), it wasn’t his night to start and that’s why you have two goalies dressed. (Tomkins) came in and did the job that they’re both capable of doing.” The Buckeyes are slated to take on the Falcons in the second game of the home-and-home series Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center, and the puck is set to drop at 7:05 p.m.

Then-OSU coach Jim Tressel holds the championship trophy after a game against Oregon Jan. 1, 2010, at the Rose Bowl. OSU won, 26-17. Both times, the Buckeyes were simply dominated in the final, first by a score of 41-14 against Florida in the 2006-07 season, before losing to the Tigers from LSU, 38-24, the next year. If an OSU fan were to argue that those results are preferable to a Rose Bowl victory, I would honestly not believe them. The Rose Bowl is one of the most significant games in the history of college football. While it may not play a role in deciding the champion, as it once did, the game holds incredible value to this day.
Take a look at the 2007 season, for instance. OSU started the year ranked No. 11 in the AP poll, before finding itself in the top spot by mid-October. The Buckeyes then dropped a shocker at home to eventual Rose Bowl runnersup Illinois Nov. 10, 2007, and found themselves, at the time, out of the BCS National Championship picture. Were it not for chaos at the top of the polls in the final weeks of the season as every team ranked ahead of OSU lost, the Buckeyes would have been on their way to Pasadena instead of New Orleans. The smell of roses was in the air, and nobody could have been happier. This is the Big Ten. This is OSU. While it might not crown a team the champion, the Rose Bowl still holds value in the hearts of many Buckeye fans. The 2013 Buckeyes are favored to finish the year without a loss, even though there are four more games before the Big Ten Championship Game. Obviously, every college football player, coach and fan hopes for his or her team to win the national championship, but I’m here to tell you that the world will not end if OSU is held out. A Rose Bowl win would taste just as sweet, and certainly sweeter than a loss to Alabama.

sports Domestic violence charges dropped against former Buckeye Sullinger DANIEL FYFFE Lantern reporter email@example.com
Courtesy of MCT
Boston Celtics’ forward Jared Sullinger (7) has his shot blocked during a game against the Washington Wizards Nov. 2, 2012, at the Verizon Center. The Celtics won, 89-86.
Hyde from 6A (motivating) regardless of who we’re playing,” Heuerman said. “Going into Purdue, I was there my freshman year and it didn’t turn out the way that we wanted it. I think there’s a lot of guys on the team that remember that, my class and stuff. This week is a big week for us, and we got something to prove going back to Purdue.” The game Heuerman referred to was a 26-23 overtime Purdue victory in 2011, when OSU tied the game with 55 seconds left in regulation after then-junior running back Jordan Hall made a touchdown reception, but the go-ahead extra point was blocked, sending the game into overtime. OSU kicked a field goal on its opening possession but couldn’t stop Purdue from securing the victory with a one-yard touchdown run from thenjunior quarterback Robert Marve. Senior kicker Drew Basil, who attempted the extra point against the Boilermakers, said Monday he remembers the play very well. “Being on a grass field, there was a bare spot where the extra point was so I moved the ball over to the right, maybe six inches, just so I could get a good spot for the hold,” Basil said. “And they blocked it from that right side. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn’t have moved the ball over six inches.” Basil said the loss was tough, but that it’s important for the team to focus on beating Purdue this week.
Domestic violence charges against former Ohio State basketball player Jared Sullinger were dismissed Monday by a Waltham District Court judge, according to media reports. Sullinger, who now plays forward for the Boston Celtics, faced charges of domestic violence stemming from an Aug. 31 incident in which he allegedly pinned longtime girlfriend, Deann Smith, to a bed and the floor. Sullinger was released on $5,000 bail after turning himself in to police, but a Waltham District Court judge initially ruled he could not have contact with Smith unless they were in the presence of a third party. Sullinger, a Boston Celtics spokesman and Sullinger’s attorney Charles Rankin did not respond to The Lantern’s request for comment Monday. A three-page affidavit was filed by Smith’s attorney, Melinda Thompson, stating that her client opposed the stay-away and that “she did not want to pursue the case and is not fearful of Mr. Sullinger.” District Judge Gregory Flynn dismissed the charges after Smith,
Junior linebacker Curtis Grant was also on the team that day in West Lafayette, and said no matter the records, Purdue always plays well against OSU. “It’s always that one team that’s always out to just get you,” Grant said Monday. “Purdue seems like that, since the last two years that I’ve been here, they’re always out to get us. I’m not expecting anything less.” Grant gave credit to the OSU coaching staff, particularly Meyer, for preventing the team from losing focus during their 20-game winning streak. “Each and every week (the coaches) don’t let us get complacent,” Grant said. “They come out each and every week with a new task, a new challenge for us to complete.” Senior running back Carlos Hyde, who has rushed for 549 yards and seven touchdowns since Big Ten play started, said “it’s not difficult at all” to find motivation to play a team with a losing record. “This is a one-game season,” Hyde said Monday. “We can’t take any opponent lightly because we’re Ohio State, so people are going to give us their best shot.” The man leading Purdue this season is Darrell Hazell, who was promoted to assistant head coach at OSU under Jim Tressel in 2005 after being wide receivers and kick returns coach with the Buckeyes for a season. Hazell was named the Boilermakers coach at the end of last season after spending two years as the coach of the Kent State squad.
whom Sullinger shared a home with in Waltham, Mass., told authorities she would not testify against the former power forward for the Buckeyes in court. Smith had also been repeatedly asking for the charges to be dropped since the incident occurred. Sullinger, 21, pleaded not guilty to assault and battery, destruction of property in total of more than $250 and witness intimidation during a Sept. 3 arraignment, and although Smith attempted to have the charges dropped, prosecutors remained in pursuit of convicting him. The defense asked to for the charges to be dropped, according to paperwork filed by Rankin, because there was no evidence to support them. “Moreover, discovery in the case has revealed there are not excited utterances nor any other admissible evidence to support the charges,” Rankin wrote, according to a report by the Boston Globe. Additionally, Rankin wrote that Smith notified District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office through her own attorney, saying she would invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if called as a prosecution witness. During his time at OSU, Sullinger started in 73 of the 76 games OSU played in from 2010-2012. Sullinger was a two-time AP All-American selection and helped lead the Buckeyes to appearances in the Sweet Sixteen in 2011 and Final Four in 2012. The Celtics selected Sullinger with the 21st overall draft pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Current OSU defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell coached alongside Hazell under Tressel. He said although Purdue has only won one game so far in 2013, Hazell’s consistency as a coach will allow him to lead the Boilermakers in the right direction. “You don’t change who you are, and that’s what I know about him,” Fickell said Monday. “It’s not like he’s going to be down or he’s going to do something crazy or something different because they’re in the situation that they are. You gotta battle through tough times and when you’re consistent, your young men learn and they learn that from you.” Purdue might be struggling this season, but Hyde said he knows it is going to give OSU its best, just like any team the Buckeyes face. “We’re Ohio State. So people are going to play us their best,” Hyde said. “That’s what I expect. I don’t expect teams to come out and just lay down. I feel like they’re going to come out and give us their best shot. And that’s what I want. I want teams to come out and give us their best shot. So when we win, we say we beat them with their best shot.” Kickoff is slated for noon at Ross-Ade Stadium.
