An information leak can cause quite an uproar. WikiLeaks, an international media organization devoted to revealing classified information from anonymous sources, released a wave of U.S. diplomatic information Sunday that included comments U.S. officials privately made about other world leaders. Larry Sanger, Ohio State alumnus and cofounder of Wikipedia, said the recent leak could sour U.S. foreign relations. Many world leaders share Sanger’s concerns. According to news reports, Franco Frattini, the Italian foreign minister, described the leaks as the “Sept. 11 of world diplomacy.” On Thursday and Friday, Sanger wrote a series of Tweets saying that WikiLeaks is an enemy of the U.S. and should be dealt with accordingly. “I always felt that if I’m in a position to have a positive impact on the world, I feel it’s my duty to do what I can,” Sanger said in a telephone interview with The Lantern Tuesday.

Besides the most recent leak, WikiLeaks released thousands of classified documents in the past year about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “The very problem with WikiLeaks, in my opinion, is that it’s irresponsibly dangerous,” Sanger said. Officials at WikiLeaks were larry Sanger, not available for comment, Wikipedia cofounder and Sanger said he could not remember ever speaking with Julian Assange, the editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks. Assange is a former hacker. The governments of Sweden, Australia and now the United States are after Assange, Sanger said. “He’s an international outlaw,” Sanger said. “He keeps doing things that directly attack … perfectly legitimate government operations.” Sanger said Assange contends that absolute openness and transparency are necessary components in government.

Sanger does not agree. “There are certain things that, if revealed, would violate the privacy of individuals not associated with the government,” Sanger said. John Mueller, professor of political science and Woody Hayes Chair of National Security Studies at OSU, questioned the impact of the leaks. “There are laws being broken by some people releasing the material, but the question is, why was this a secret in the first place?” Mueller said. Some of the leaked information contained statements government officials made in private. Mueller said that although that might be embarrassing, there hasn’t been an awe-inspiring revelation to come out of the leaks. Still, Mueller said some criticism is justified. “I can see why people are concerned about it,” he said. “Secrecy is not all that compatible with democracy.” Some news organizations, including The Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, did not

Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke said in a meeting on campus Tuesday that although the U.S. economy has been expanding for the past year, low consumer confidence has hampered progress toward solving nationwide unemployment issues. “At the pace of growth that we’re seeing, we’re not growing fast enough to materially reduce the unemployment rate,” Bernanke said Tuesday at a panel conversation on the economy at the Fisher College of Business. “In fact, the 9.6 percent unemployment rate we currently see is about the same as it was when the recession officially ended in June 2009.” Leaders from Ford Motor Co., IBM, Moody-Nolan Inc., Sophisticated Systems and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams participated in the discussion, which was meant to help Bernanke see the job market through the lens of employers. Bernanke received promising news from the co-owner of one Columbusbased company. Jeni Britton Bauer, president of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, said that despite the poor economic climate, many small businesses have been opening in Columbus. She said her company has weathered the storm, hiring more than 50 employees in the past two years and expanding its operations outside Ohio. Central Ohio’s unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in October, much lower than the state average of 9.9 percent, according to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The national unemployment rate was slightly lower than the state’s, at 9.6 percent. But the economic issues extend beyond the unemployment rate. More than 40 percent of those unemployed have been jobless for six months or longer, Bernanke said. After being unemployed for an extended period of time, it becomes more difficult for someone to find a job. “Particularly with young people — and the unemployment rate among young people is extremely high — this can have a very long-term effect on their employability, on their wages,” Bernanke said. “We may find that the implications for our unemployment rate go well beyond the recovery from this episode.” But employment will not increase substantially if Americans’ perception of the economy does not improve, he said. “Part of the barrier to faster growth and recovery is confidence of households that they will be financially secure, that they can make purchases,” Bernanke said. “With unemployment so high, that confidence is hard to come by.”

Students spread smiles through clowning club JennY foGle Lantern reporter fogle.96@osu.edu Stethoscopes, pagers and clown noses. Those are some of the tools of the trade for medical students involved with Clowning in Columbus, a club at Ohio State inspired by national groups that use laughter as treatment for hospital patients. “It’s just fun (for patients) to be taken out of themselves for a moment,” said Eileen Mehl, the club’s adviser. “It sort of transports you to another time-space continuum. If you’re talking to someone wearing a red nose and purple hair, it takes you to another place and you can laugh and be silly and forget about your cares for a while.” The group’s members provide entertainment at medical fundraisers, such as the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America walk, hemophilia walks and health fairs in the area, said Allie Effron, a secondyear in medical school and assistant leader of the group. The medical students entertain children by making balloon animals, blowing bubbles, playing games, face painting and acting silly. “One little kid wanted a balloon of himself, he wanted a little person,” Effron said. “We did it and made it for him, and he was so happy when we were able to do it. Just the smile on his face was totally worth it.” The club is based on the work of Dr. Patch Adams — the man known for fusing clowning and medicine — and of the Gesundheit! Institute, the nonprofit group he founded to apply his idea that fun and play can help patients recover. Recently, the Columbus group attended a Halloween party at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Maggie Germain (center) and Keith rosenberg (left), both second-year medical students, entertain a small child while dressed up as clowns for the group clowning in columbus, in the oSU Medical center on Tuesday. “It’s a good way to learn how to make a kid laugh and just interact with them,” said Maggie Germain, a second-year in medical school and president of Clowning in Columbus. “We find out what they think is funny so that some day, when we’re working with

patients, we can connect with them in that way and help make their time in the hospital or at the doctor’s office less scary.”

campus OSU alumnus completes sixth Ironman nicole frie Lantern reporter frie.1@osu.edu As if completing law school, raising a family and running more than 20 marathons wasn’t challenging enough, Vince Brockman completed his sixth Ironman triathlon Sunday. Brockman, a 1988 Ohio State Moritz College of Law alumnus, completed his first triathlon in the mid-1980s while he was still in law school. A former cross country runner in high school, he said a friend encouraged him to try it. “The triathlon craze first started in the mid- to late ‘80s, and I was hooked,” Brockman said. A triathlon is a three-stage endurance event beginning with swimming, then cycling and finishing with running. Competitors strive for the fastest overall time, though the distance of the three stages varies depending on the type of triathlon. Though Brockman had participated in sprint triathlons — which generally include a half-mile swim, 13-mile bike and 3.1-mile run — he made an interesting discovery after completing his first Ironman triathlon in 1992. “The longer the race, the better I was compared to my buddies,” he said. Brockman continued to compete in marathons and Ironman triathlons, including two in 1994: the Ironman European Championship in June and the Timex Ironman Canada in September. But in 1997, Brockman took a decade-long hiatus from racing. Between his wife, three children and job at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Co., he didn’t have enough time for long-distance races. Training for triathlons, especially at the Ironman level, is grueling and time-consuming. “If you want to do well, you should be biking 200 to 300 miles per week,” Brockman said, adding that finding time to swim and run is generally easier. Gregory Van Amerongen, president of the OSU Triathlon Club, agreed. “It requires six hours of training per day, at least,” said Van Amerongen, who has completed a half Ironman. “I hope to get to do an Ironman one day but I don’t have time now.” Van Amerongen said he understands how Brockman could be “addicted” to Ironman triathlons. “Once you do one, you’re like, ‘When’s the next one?’” Van Amerongen said. “We call it the bug — the triathlon bug.” And in 2005, after gaining 20 pounds as a result of decreased physical activity, Brockman was bitten again. Around that time, Brockman said, the CEO of Scotts decided he could either cut health care benefits or take a more active approach to helping employees. Subsequently, a medical facility and gym were built for the company’s employees near its headquarters. From November 2005 to January 2007, Brockman used the gym and the help of a physical therapist to shed the weight while working toward another goal. “The Disney Marathon was a ploy to get my kids to support me,” Brockman said.

He decided that if he could do the marathon, which weaves through Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., he could do another Ironman, which he completed in October 2008. “It helps me to have an event to shoot for,” Brockman said. “It’s a great stress relief to work out.” Brockman’s sixth and most recent Ironman triathlon, the Ford Ironman Arizona, took place in Tempe, Ariz. He completed the 2.4-mile swim in an hour and 19 minutes, the 112-mile bike ride in about seven hours, and the 26.2-mile run in about five hours. By comparison, Brockman’s best race was the Ironman in Europe, which he completed in about 11 hours. Though Brockman had a good swim and was “a lot more relaxed” than in the past, he said it was a day that favored strong cyclists — it was raining and hailing on race day. For Brockman, one of the most inspiring moments of the triathlon came during the biking portion. Built for swimming and running, Brockman said the bike ride challenged him and took him longer to complete than he expected. But seeing an amputee riding his bike reminded Brockman of a death in his family and the fragility of life, so he biked with the man for a portion of the ride. “I was so motivated by that,” said Brockman, choking up. “That’s what the Ironman is all about.” Though Brockman is inspired by his competitors, he inspires others as well. “The great thing is my two sons made a pact that they’re going to do a marathon when they’re older,” he said. Brockman said his kids, ages 11, 9 and 4, “get jazzed” about the races. Because his children missed six days of school when they traveled to Arizona with Brockman, he said that he and his wife arranged a project for one of their sons comparing time and distance measurements using the ankle bracelets worn by the competitors. Though his family is supportive, Brockman’s wife joked that this Ironman would be his last. But Brockman has different plans. “I will continue in some fashion,” he said, naming the Ford Ironman Wisconsin and Ironman China as two races he’d like to complete. Brockman is still involved with his alma mater, participating in the Moritz College of Law’s new Short-Term Assistance Registry program, which provides employers with students and 2010 graduates to hire for short-term projects. Lauren Fellure, a fourth-year graduate student studying law and business, has been working with Brockman at Scotts since October. Though Fellure was unaware of Brockman’s Ironman accomplishments, she described him as down-to-earth and easy to talk to. “He’s one of the first people there who approached me,” she said. On Monday, Brockman was already back to work as the executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary of Scotts. But it seems he can’t shake his Ironman routine. Brockman said he went for a quick run during his lunch break. “I only did 3 miles,” he said. “But it felt good.”

Club began after med student visited Gesundheit! Throughout the years, the group’s target audience has changed as members and leaders come and go. This year the group is geared toward pediatrics, so most of the events deal with children, Germain said. The medical students try to be silly but simple, wearing crazy clothes, wigs and clown noses. They avoid face paint so they don’t frighten children. “We don’t want to scare them,” Germain said. “Even with just a nose, some kids get scared, and you’ll have to take it off and show them it is not real.” Although the students dress up as clowns, most never aspired to that profession. “We have a few people that come that have had a family member that was a clown and silly things like that, but for the most part, I just think people like the idea of creative caring through clowning,” Germain said. Not only does Clowning in Columbus give students the opportunity to bring laughter into someone’s life, it can also benefit their professional careers.

publish the information provided by WikiLeaks. The New York Times did. “They’ve done something wrong. By essentially giving the WikiLeaks an extremely prominent platform and endorsement … they’ve done something that could be really damaging to the United States,” Sanger said. Throughout the week, Sanger has dealt with the controversy from his Twitter statements. But he hasn’t backed off from the statement and wants to make clear that Wikipedia is not associated with WikiLeaks in any way.

About 100 students and faculty attended Bauer said it’s important for the government to create an environment in which businesses can develop. “I started my business in the North Market here in Columbus, where it was just me and the ice cream machine and our customers,” Bauer said.

“It gives (students) confidence that they can work with people who are in difficult situations and make them laugh and let them have fun and interact with them in a way that’s beneficial and not as difficult as they might think,” Mehl said. The club began a few years ago at OSU after one of the medical students went to the West Virginia-based Gesundheit! Institute, Mehl said. After returning to OSU, he brought Adams to speak at the college and then started the club. Friday, the group will host an event featuring Dr. Bonnie Gifford, an OSU alumna who was affiliated and did work with Adams’ national organization. The event is open to all medical students and will feature “laughter yoga,” costume selection, character development and ways to connect with patients. Although medical school is time-consuming, Mehl urges students to get involved with groups like Clowning in Columbus. “It opens another avenue to students that they might not have thought of,” she said. “That they might keep a red nose in the pocket of their white coat and that not only can they interact with patients but they can invite their colleagues to do the same.”

A “wiki” is a website that lets Web users edit and create linked pages. WikiLeaks has strayed from that definition, as it can be edited only by WikiLeaks employees. Besides making that distinction, Sanger said he felt obligated to take a stance. “To our cynical world, it’s going to sound a little ridiculous,” Sanger said. “But I really did think of it as my patriotic duty.” Sanger earned his master’s and doctoral degree in philosophy from OSU in 1995 and 2000, respectively. News reports from MCT wire service contributed to this story.

Her business grew with the help of loans and other support from the government, which she said is vital to small businesses. About 100 invited Ohio State students and faculty attended the discussion. Vimala Nandula, a third-year in economics and finance, said it was interesting to hear the perspectives of a wide range of business leaders and see how every business is related. Udit Sekhri, a third-year in finance, said it was encouraging to hear the business people’s optimism about the future of the economy.

“All the CEOs were really confident in the future of the economy,” he said. “That’s important to me because our confidence comes from the confidence of our leaders.” Bauer said success comes in many forms and that students should not let the unemployment rates discourage them. “My grandmother always said, ‘If you can’t find a job, make a job,’” Bauer said. “I was a 22-year-old, pink-haired artist when I started up.”

Bosnian women outraged over Angelina Jolie film BoriS BABic dpa MCT SARAJEVO — Bosnian war victims maintained pressure on Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, whose directing debut has stirred a huge controversy in the war-torn country, a report said Tuesday. Bakira Hasecic, member of an organization representing women war victims, wrote to Jolie via the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR of which she is a goodwill ambassador and asked for a meeting, the daily Dnevni Avaz said. The film she is currently making has outraged Bosnian Muslims because it reportedly tells a story of love between a Muslim women and a Serb soldier who raped her. The 1992-95 war in Bosnia pitted the Belgrade-backed Serbs against Muslims and

Croats. The conflict was marked by atrocities, including the organized rape of women. Rape victims say the idea of a rape victim falling in love with a rapist is preposterous. Pushed by the women war victims group, Bosnia’s culture ministry at one point revoked Jolie’s film permit, but reversed the move a few days later. The protests forced Jolie to shoot much of the film in Hungary. The shooting has now been completed but no date has been set for the release of the still untitled film. Jolie insisted that she has no intention of hurting the war victims and urged opponents of her film to see it before protesting against it. The actress, who has been a UNHCR goodwill ambassador since 2001, did not say whether she would meet representatives of the Bosnian women’s organization, Avaz said.

student voice Rape, and its tolerance, no laughing matter One woman in six says she has been raped, and the problem won’t end until men take a stand to end sexual assault LANTERN Columnist

So I took this test the other day and I totally raped it. Do you see anything strange about that sentence? Is there something about it that rubs you the wrong way? For most of you, I’d say apparently not. It seems that most of my peers see nothing wrong with equating doing well on a test with a brutal crime that has been committed against one in six American women, according to the Rape, DOROTHY POWELL Abuse and Incest National Network. powell.447@osu.edu One in six women. The use of the word rape in that manner in just a symptom of a larger disease. Our culture has somehow not managed to grasp that rape is unacceptable. Although we might prosecute rape offenders, only about 6 percent of rapists will ever be jailed for their crimes, according to RAINN. And though police investigate rapes, there are hundreds of thousands of rape kits across the country that sit on shelves because there is no money or time or staff to complete them. Until 1993, there were laws in parts of the country that let men rape their wives, yet there are still college kids out there who don’t think about that when they equate the horrors of rape to doing well on a test.

Most of us take basic precautions to avoid burglary. We lock our doors, maybe buy a security system. But, frankly, if a bad guy wants to get into your house badly enough, he will. The same goes for rape.

Why on earth is this still happening? How do we as a society still permit this? The answer is in the way we look at rape. We can all agree that rape is horrific. But the onus is, and pretty much always has been, on women to protect themselves. We tell women not to walk alone at night, not to wear revealing clothing, not to leave drinks unattended, not to be alone with strange men. All sound advice, to be sure. But if a rapist wants to rape, he (or she) will. Period. Think of it this way. Most of us take basic precautions to avoid burglary. We lock our doors, maybe buy a security system. But, frankly, if a bad guy wants to get into your house badly enough, he will. The same goes for rape. I can take all the precautions listed above, and more, and if someone wants to rape me badly enough, then none

of it matters. I cannot stop it. I can take reasonable steps to avoid it but I cannot keep someone from raping me. The responsibility to stop rape falls squarely on the shoulders of men (or rather, potential rapists. Although women can be and are rapists, the majority are men). At a certain point, the men of this country, and of the world, need to stand up and say “enough.” There is no reason to commit rape. There is not a single reason to excuse it. And we, as a society, need to teach our children that. We need to make it clear that rape is a horrible, inexcusable crime. We need to teach our children that the best way, the only way, to stop rape is for people not to rape. There are plenty of people who will say that sometimes women are just asking for it. That men can’t help themselves, that they just have to rape. That if a girl was wearing a tight shirt or a short skirt, the man just couldn’t control himself. How are men not insulted by this? That reasoning says men are animals, unable to control their instincts. If someone told me that I’m incapable of controlling myself, that, given the right provocation, I’ll just have to irreparably hurt someone, I would be furious. It’s an absolutely ridiculous idea that human beings, as far as we have come from our cave-dwelling days, are incapable of acting humanely. There are no circumstances in which a woman “asks” to be raped. There are no circumstances in which it’s acceptable to rape. Until we start teaching this to our children, and until this message sinks in, we will still hear reports of rape on the news. We as a society must rise above the excuses and end this. Because no woman deserves to be that one in six.

Are struggling Wolverines sobering up Buckeye fans? GUEST Columnist

The history of the Ohio State versus Michigan football rivalry is one of epic proportions. And what is a game at Ohio Stadium without some alcohol? On Nov. 18, 2006, the Buckeyes were ranked No. 1 and the Wolverines No. 2, the first time the teams went into the game atop the national rankings. The game drew Buckeye-loving fans and alcoholloving fans. The head coach of the Wolverines was still Lloyd Carr, and BETHANY BRAKEMEYER the game was very close. In the brakemeyer.1@osu.edu end, the Bucks pulled ahead with a 42-39 win. In the stands, crowds went wild. According to OSU Police reports, 188 people were arrested or cited for open-container or other alcohol violations at tailgate parties that year. Of those 188, seven were OSU students. Two years later, when the rival teams met again at Ohio Stadium on Nov. 22, 2008, there was a new Wolverines coach, Rich Rodriguez, and the rivalry was not a good match. The Bucks were ranked No. 10, and the Wolverines were not even ranked. Without much question, the Bucks won 42-7. The crowd was still unruly — they didn’t know what to expect from the new coach — and the rivalry still strong, despite the mismatch. There were 83 arrests or citations for alcohol-related charges. Only two OSU students were arrested or cited. This year’s game drew a typical crowd, and with Rodriguez still as head coach of the Wolverines, and no ranking, the alcohol-loving crowds seem to be dying out. There were only 28 arrests or citations Saturday, and no students were involved in those. Could the Wolverines be sobering up the crowds at Ohio Stadium?

AUSTIN OWENS / Lantern photographer Fans cheer on Ohio State to a 37-7 on Saturday. No students were cited or arrested for alcohol-related crimes at tailgates, according to OSU Police.

Flood victims desperate, but stereotype still an obstacle GUEST Columnist

Heavy rainfall in July flooded major areas of Pakistan and, according to The New York Times, has caused more damage than the Southeast Asia tsunami, the Haiti earthquake and the 2005 Pakistan earthquake combined. Nonetheless, few people have heard of the destruction thanks to prominent Islamophobia in the United States. Though Pakistan is associated with the War on Terror, that is not an excuse for the lack of attention to the country’s plight. The misconception that all Muslims are terrorists is preventing the citizens of Pakistan from receiving the aid they need. According to the BBC, only half a million of the 20 million people in need have received aid. The refugees are in danger of becoming ill. In an appeal to the United Nations for disaster relief on Sept. 17, the U.N. secretarygeneral, Ban Ki-moon, said, “In the floods’ wake, we are seeing hunger, misery and desperation. Children becoming malnourished. Skin diseases on the rise because of the lack of soap and clean water. Nowhere for families to shelter from the sweltering sun.” But it is not right to ignore the devastation merely because we are afraid of a small group. “Mostly the images that we see are people with beards and people with guns in Pakistan, but that is the wrong impression. If there are people like that, I would

Aside from football prestige, what will Nebraska add to the Big Ten? New addition

BLAKE WILLIAMS Senior Lantern reporter williams.3012@osu.edu When Big Ten presidents approved the addition of Nebraska on June 12, thoughts immediately turned to what it meant for Big Ten football. However, the Cornhuskers’ effect on the Big Ten extends beyond the gridiron. Besides football, Nebraska will join the Big Ten in 20 other sports when the move takes effect July 1. Women’s basketball is one sport that might benefit. Nebraska’s women’s team recorded a perfect regular season in the 2009-10 campaign before losing in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament and finishing 32-2. Coach Connie Yori took home National Coach of the Year honors for her team’s success. “There has been a lot of balance from top to bottom” in the Big Ten, Yori said in a phone interview with The Lantern. “We hope that we can come into the league … (and) be competitive.”

James Laurinaitis wasn’t used to losing. Following his 43-8 career as a middle linebacker at Ohio State, the St. Louis Rams drafted Laurinaitis early in the second round last year. The Rams finished the season 1-15, the worst record in the NFL. “It was definitely different. It’s crazy frustrating losing that many games,” Laurinaitis said. “No one wants to be remembered for going 1-15, but I had the mindset that hopefully I can be a part of the solution and not the problem.”

In high school, Laurinaitis excelled in two sports. He was named Minnesota’s Defensive Mr. Football at Plymouth Wayzata High, where he recorded 193 tackles his senior year. He was also a star hockey player and was considered to be a second- or third-round pick in the NHL Draft had he chosen the sport. After committing to the University of Minnesota, Laurinaitis changed his mind when he visited OSU. He loved talking with the coaches and looked forward to learning from standout Buckeye linebackers A.J. Hawk and Bobby Carpenter. Even so, nothing could prepare Laurinaitis for the Buckeye faithful. “When I first got there, I didn’t understand truly the passion

inten grou tional ndin g Miami (ad)vice: Give it one more year

What should the Miami Heat do? At 10-8 and sitting in an embarrassing third in the Southeast Division, should they just call it a year? Should Heat president Pat Riley step in for embattled coach Erik Spoelstra, who seemingly has already lost control of his team? Should they just ride the “Big Three” for 40 minutes a game because their bench has already been depleted by injury? Sorry, I couldn’t resist. No, the Heat aren’t going to give up. No, Pat Riley isn’t going to coach this year. And no, they won’t ride LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh until they collapse. To start, everyone should stop kidding themselves. Miami is going to make the postseason. But the main reason “Riles” won’t come back to coach the Heat (at least this season) is that they stand no chance of making even the Eastern Conference Finals. Thus far, the Heat have dealt with a perfect storm of bad luck to start the season. Sharpshooter Mike Miller injured his thumb in the preseason and will be sidelined until late December. Their glue guy and best rebounder, Udonis Haslem, suffered a foot injury and is likely lost for the year. Furthermore, Wade has been battling multiple injuries and is suffering through a horrific shooting stretch. A lot of NBA fans hate them. Some adolescent NBA enthusiasts probably hate the Heat more than broccoli or spinach. The anti-South Beach sentiments have been affirmed by NBA personalities as well. “I want them to lose all their games,” Dallas owner Mark Cuban told the Associated Press last week. “It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to South Beach,” tweeted Celtics forward Paul Pierce after the Celtics topped the Heat on Nov. 11.

OSU ready for clash of styles in Final Four Buckeyes hope stingy defense will combat high-powered Notre Dame offense Friday BEN AXELROD Lantern reporter axelrod.17@osu.edu After defeating Georgetown on Friday night 2-0, the Ohio State women’s soccer team (17-4-1) is preparing for its first Final Four matchup in program history when it will take on Notre Dame (19-2-2) on Friday in Cary, N.C. Notre Dame enters the Final Four as the No. 4 seed in its region, after knocking off No. 1 seed North Carolina 4-1 in the Sweet 16 and No. 2 seed Oklahoma State 2-0 in the Elite Eight. OSU forward Paige Maxwell, the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, said she isn’t intimidated by the Fighting Irish, who have outscored their opponents 13-1 in the tournament. “They’re a solid team, just like anyone else. You have to be, honestly, a great team to go into the Final Four,” Maxwell

said. “But I don’t think that they’re a competitor that we can’t beat.” OSU goalkeeper Katie Baumgardner said the Buckeyes are prepared to take on their Midwest rival. “They’re a great team. They only have two losses on the season,” Baumgardner said. “There’s a lot of tension between the two teams, so it’s going to be a heated rivalry.” Geographical proximity might be the only similarity between the Buckeyes and the Fighting Irish. The Buckeyes will try to combat Notre Dame’s high-scoring offense with a defense led by the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Cassie Dickerson. The Buckeyes’ defense has given up two goals in the first four rounds of the tournament, both of which came in OSU’s Sweet 16 matchup with Virginia. “As a defense, we like to work for each

other,” Dickerson said. “If we set that tone, it will work up the field for our midfielders and our forwards. So if we set that tone and our whole team plays with that mentality, then I think we’re pretty hard to stop.” While Notre Dame has advanced to the Final Four by way of taking commanding leads over its opponents, the Buckeyes

have tended more toward nailbiters, including a double-overtime, opening-round win over St. Francis (PA) and a second-round penalty kick shootout victory over Dayton. Maxwell said the Buckeyes are built to win close games. “We’re an overtime team,” Maxwell said. “We’re all fit enough. We all know the game of soccer, and anything can happen with soccer.” A win Friday would put the Buckeyes in Sunday’s championship game against the winner of the Stanford (22-0-2) and Boston College (17-6-1) matchup. Baumgardner said she’s yet

to put her team’s historic season into perspective. “None of us have realized how big this season has been,” Baumgardner said. “It’s not going to really sink in until it’s over.” Maxwell said she’s excited to showcase her talents in the national spotlight but that, for now, the Buckeyes are focused on beating the Fighting Irish. “We deserve to be here. We deserve to show people our game, our style and how athletic and how good we are as a soccer team,” Maxwell said. “It’s been a whirlwind, but we’re just ready to go there and show Notre Dame what’s up.”

Wednesday December 1, 2010

The Heat have ushered in a new era of hate surrounding one team. Recent NBA champions weren’t looked down upon like this. The Lakers might have been showmen. The Celtics might have been thugs. The Spurs and Pistons were incredibly boring to watch. But none were despised like the Heat, a sentiment echoed by players, coaches and fans alike. There’s also been a share of bizarre moments, such as Bosh stating after a recent win over Phoenix that the players want to “chill” more than they want to practice. Because Bosh dawdled in mediocrity during his seven years in Toronto (his Raptors made the playoffs once), his cluelessness surrounding the hard work it takes to make the playoffs shouldn’t come as a surprise. And did LeBron bump into Spoelstra on purpose last Saturday when walking off the court in a loss to Dallas? On paper it seems like no big deal, but when have you ever seen an NBA player seemingly give his head coach a shoulder check? The Heat’s problems boil down to a few things: • They have no inside presence. None whatsoever. When your bigs are being dominated by good-not-great players like Zach Randolph and Paul Millsap, you’ve got interior issues. • LeBron and Wade have not learned to co-exist. This “you take over this quarter, I’ll take

over next quarter” garbage won’t cut it. You can’t have one guy go one-on-five in the half-court while everyone else stands around the 3-point stripe. That also translates to their half-court offense problems. The fact that Carlos Arroyo is their point guard isn’t the problem, it’s that LeBron and Wade think they are the team’s primary ball-handlers too. • This team has serious psychological issues. Somehow, LeBron remains impervious to criticism and refuses to blame himself for anything, ever. His latest Nike commercial, while funny and welldone, is also a reminder that he’s yet to grow up and might never do so. Wade went through a very public divorce in the offseason and has gone from the Sultan of South Beach to LeBron’s scorned sidekick. Bosh, well, I don’t even know if he qualifies as a power forward. He’s a shooting guard in a power forward’s body with the tenacity of a kitten. Remember when Rajon Rondo dunked all over him when the Celtics came to South Beach? If Shaquille O’Neal or Dwight Howard or Kevin McHale had been standing in the lane, Rondo would have been sent tumbling into the third row. With all that said, this Heat team has a chance to be very, very good. But it likely won’t be this year. They need a year to gel. They need a coach who not only can bring out the best in LeBron but also has a good enough reputation to tear him down. They need Bosh to play more like Bill Laimbeer and not Darko Milicic. They’ll be entering a war zone Thursday in Cleveland. Who knows, maybe they’ll come together under the intense adversity. Or perhaps they’ll crumble under it like they have all season.

led St. Louis in tackles as a rookie that people have for OSU football,” Laurinaitis said. “The whole O-H-I-O thing was weird to me.” As a three-year starter at OSU, Laurinaitis racked up 375 tackles. Only six other players have had more. He led the team in tackles from 2006-08, becoming the fourth player in school history to do so for three consecutive years. He was also a two-time captain, an honor he shares with only six other Buckeyes. Many in the program, including current Buckeye linebacker Ross Homan, saw how hard he worked both in practice and on game day. “James was an unbelievable competitor on the field,” Homan said. “And off the field, he was a huge mentor to me. Watching how he studied film and how he worked out, he’s going to be an icon in OSU history for sure.” Co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell said Laurinaitis’ work ethic made up for what he might have lacked in natural ability. “He did a good job in our system. The kid was as competitive as they ever come, and he’s got a passion for the game of football,” Fickell said. “His work ethic, competitiveness, and passion to play football are what you look for in anybody.” Laurinaitis said he misses the sense of community that comes with playing football in college. “I try to tell people here in St. Louis about the cult that is OSU football,” Laurinaitis said. “When you’re in (the community), you’re just so used to it that you’re like, ‘These people are all crazy, but in a good way.’ Then you miss that community when you leave it.” Laurinaitis missed the OSU community so much when he went to the NFL that he got excited whenever he saw a former Buckeye in St. Louis. “I remember last year driving down the highway here in St. Louis going to Rams Park and seeing an OSU bumper sticker,” Laurinaitis said. “I just wanted to pull up next to them and be like, ‘Hey, I went to Ohio State too.’” Though the NFL was certainly a possibility after leaving OSU, it wasn’t the only job offer he received. His father, Joseph Laurinaitis, was a former professional wrestler who competed as “Animal,” one half of the legendary “Legion of Doom” and “Road Warrior” tag teams. The wrestling lineage, as well as the family’s connections to the business (his uncle John Laurinaitis still works for World Wrestling Entertainment) led Laurinaitis to meet Vince McMahon, chairman and CEO of WWE. “One or two times when I was at OSU, he said to

me, ‘You know, what do you think about coming into the family business?’ But to be honest, I hope this football deal works out long enough to where I don’t have to do any of that,” Laurinaitis said. “I know the beating my dad took from it. He had to have nine surgeries. He can’t even lift his right arm above his head anymore.” Laurinaitis stuck with football and was projected to be a first-round pick throughout his junior year. By the end of his senior year, however, his stock had fallen. The Rams selected him with the third pick of the second round. “I felt like I had a solid college career, and as a competitor I was obviously disappointed,” Laurinaitis said. “I try to keep the mindset going into every practice that I’m still trying to make the team.” Laurinaitis said he learned early in his career how cutthroat the NFL can be. “You’re constantly evaluated, and everyone is disposable,” Laurinaitis said. “No matter what your name is or how long you’ve been in the league, if you do something and can’t do it to the level that they want anymore, they won’t hesitate at all to get rid of you.” Despite going 1-15 in his first season in the league, Laurinaitis led the team in tackles while starting at middle linebacker in his rookie season. The Sporting News named him to the All-Rookie team. None of those accolades surprise Buckeye linebacker Brian Rolle, who said Laurinaitis taught him a lot. “I tell people that he wasn’t the fastest guy or the most athletic guy, but I felt like he knew everything because he was always in the right spot,” Rolle said. “I never saw him make the same mistake twice. He has a desire to play football and to want to be great, and that’s something I feel like he has been carrying over into the NFL.” This year, the Rams made it their goal to win the NFC West. Although that might have seemed laughable coming off a 1-15 season, they’re now tied atop the division with Seattle at 5-6. The defense ranks 14th in points allowed, with 21 per game, and 13th in rushing yards allowed, with 103.4 per contest.

Linebacker James Laurinaitis leaps over a Texas defender during the 2008 Fiesta Bowl. “I think we can (win the division), but we have a long way to go,” Laurinaitis said. Wins aren’t his only concern. While recently playing the video game “Madden NFL 2011,” Laurinaitis saw something that disturbed him. He had the lowest swagger attribute rating of all the linebackers on his team. The rating determines the likelihood of a player to celebrate on the way to the end zone or after a touchdown. “I understand that I didn’t have a lot of celebrations after sacks or picks last year, but to put me as the lowest on the squad really changed my whole mindset on everything that I wanted to do as far as celebrations,” he said. After consulting with starting cornerback Ron Bartell, Laurinaitis decided to stick with his lineage. He caught an interception early in their game Oct. 31 against the Carolina Panthers and, after being tackled, he strutted in a pose that mimicked wrestling legend Ric Flair. He followed that up with a sack. After he got up from the turf, he started posing and flexing his biceps like Hulk Hogan. “It was pretty funny and new for me. Coming from ‘Tresselville,’ you don’t really get to do celebrations like that,” Laurinaitis said. “I’m not too concerned with having a 100 for my swagger rating, but being the lowest on the team, that just can’t be OK. So I had to do something about it.”

25) are ranked in the Associated Press Top 25. Nebraska is ranked No. 24. Though the Cornhuskers’ men’s basketball program has not made the NCAA Tournament this decade, another winter sport might also improve the Big Ten. “The Big Ten is a premier conference in the sport of wrestling in the country and has been for a long time, and to add Nebraska only makes the conference that much better,” OSU wrestling coach Tom Ryan said in a phone interview with The Lantern. Nebraska is No. 14 in wrestling in the Coaches’ Poll. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, OSU, Michigan, Northwestern and Purdue represent the Big Ten in the Top 25. “You have to go through more teams to win a Big Ten conference,” Nebraska coach Mark Manning said in a phone interview with The Lantern. “It’s not getting easier, I’ll say that.” Adding the Cornhuskers will increase the competition in the Big Ten, Ryan said. “It’s great competition. It’s great for the fans. It’s a well-known institution, so people come to the event. You can market the event,” he said. “On a number of different levels, having Nebraska is a positive.” Nearly 1,500 visitors attended the dual meet between OSU and Nebraska on Nov. 21 at St. John Arena, where the Buckeyes fell 24-11. Nebraska is also historically strong in baseball and by parting with the Big 12, leaves behind last season’s top RPI conference in the country. “Baseball is a big deal to Nebraska, and they will be a very strong addition to the Big Ten,” OSU baseball coach Greg Beals said. “The thing that I like is that it broadens and spreads our wings a little bit as a conference.” The Cornhuskers will be one of the most southern locations in the conference, and they’ll use that to their advantage, coach Mike Anderson said. The South is typically the strongest region for baseball because athletes can play outdoor year-round. “We bring an undying commitment to make (the Big Ten) a strong RPI” conference, Anderson said. “There won’t be a time when we don’t try to have the hardest schedule in the conference.” Regardless of what each program brings to the Big Ten, Yori thinks the move was the right decision for Nebraska. “I think it’s going to be a great move for the University of Nebraska, and frankly the entire state of Nebraska, to make the jump to the Big Ten,” she said. “I am very comfortable with the move and I think it was the right thing to do.”

Many of the latest tech gadgets and holiday must-haves are pricey and likely beyond the budget of the average college student. However, it’s still possible to give a memorable holiday gift without breaking the bank. Most of the guys I talked to said they would prefer a single large present rather than a bunch of smaller ones. I put together this list with that in mind and set the price range to no more than $150. I understand that might be pushing it for the average student, so I have also listed some cool, less expensive — but memorable — presents.

If you are struggling to shop for the woman in your life, these ideas could save you from headaches this holiday season. There are some things you need to know before you drive to the mall and start shopping. First, know her favorite color. Second, know her sizes. If you don’t, make the call to her mom or best friend. They will know. Third, pay attention when she says, “Oh, I like that.” Remembering those four little words makes all the difference when it comes to gift shopping. If your girlfriend, little sister, mom or grandmother likes things that smell good, then Bath and Body Works is the place for you. There are plenty of pre-packaged gift sets in all kinds of smells that make great gifts. “Twilight Woods” and “Secret Wonderland” are popular smells this season at Bath and Body Works.

One of the grisly extras of the AMC network’s ‘The Walking Dead’ looks out for a human lunch. The Gateway Film Center screens the show Sunday nights.

There’s only one place where Ohio State students can get up close and personal with zombies — for free. The Gateway Film Center in the South Campus Gateway shows the TV series “The Walking Dead” for free at 10 p.m. Sundays, when the show airs. Groups of students sit in the Martini Shot Bistro, waiting for the theater doors to open at 9:45 p.m. John Umland, a customer service manager at the Gateway, said the zombie TV series has been wildly popular. The show on Nov. 21 filled up two theaters, with about 100 attendees in each. Gateway officials are considering moving the screening to a larger theater for next Sunday’ showing. “It gives students the communal, social experience of going to the movies, but for free,” Umland said. “All of the fun, none of the price.” The Gateway has shown other series for free before, including “Lost” and “Mad Men” during the past Summer Quarter, Umland said. Besides “The Walking Dead,” the Gateway shows “Glee” at 8 p.m. Tuesdays. But Umland said the Gateway had a reason for choosing “The Walking Dead.”

“AMC shows are very cinematic. Seeing them on a big screen is kind of awesome.” Tony Fox, a third-year in aviation, agreed, as he has an “obsession with enormous screens.” He and Nathan Pressler, a third-year in history, have been coming to view the show every Sunday. “I like watching it here because I’m not distracted,” Pressler said. “If I watched it at home, I’d probably be doing homework at the same time.” Roommates Justin Reik, a second-year in English, and Drew Sabula, a second-year in biology, attend together because their apartment doesn’t have cable TV. “It’s f------ zombies, there’s nothing better,” Reik said. “Plus, we live right next door so we walk over.” Reik and Sabula said they would like to see the Gateway show “South Park” or “The Office” for free. During December, the Gateway will do a free holiday film series at 2 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, said Meghan Vesper, the sales and marketing manager at the Gateway. Though admission is free, the Gateway encourages attendees to bring a toy to donate to the Toys for Tots Foundation toy drive. Sunday will be the season finale of “The Walking Dead,” and Vesper said there will be special zombiethemed drink specials.

btw Lantern CD Reviews Black Eyed Peas are ‘Beginning’ to improve RYAN BOOK Arts editor book.15@osu.edu The Black Eyed Peas caused a slight panic (and some celebration) when they titled their last album “The E.N.D.” It will come as a relief to some that the new album is titled “The Beginning.” Those who found “Boom Boom Pow” to be the most obnoxious single of 2009 will immediately be discouraged by the opening track, “The Time (Dirty Bit).” The first single pseudo-covers “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” the ‘80s ditty made popular by “Dirty Dancing.” It’s not clear whether the “dirty bit” refers to the Peas’ attempt at a film tribute or at how unclean the listener feels after hearing the shameless single. If you can get past the first track, things look up from there. The second track, “Light up the Night,” is a better example of what the Peas are good at: making songs that belong in and should stay at the club. A bumping beat and fewer lyrics for the listener (and the Peas) to think about is their best bet. “The Best One Yet (The Boy)” and

Flo Rida can’t go any farther south than this

“The Beginning” Black Eyed Peas

“Just Can’t Get Enough” work for the same reasons. No one expects the Black Eyed Peas to produce the most introspective lyrics, but it’s still tough to listen to the “Full Metal Jacket” inspired “Love You Long Time,” in which the song title is repeated inanely and endlessly. In “XOXOXO,” the words “hugs and kisses” are repeated in the same fashion. Therefore, it’s surprising when the Peas bust out “Someday,” a song about pursuing one’s dreams. It’s still worth dancing to yet doesn’t kill any brain cells. The Black Eyed Peas can still keep a party going, but as with previous albums, they tend to be obnoxious while doing so. “The Beginning” is all right but probably best in small doses.

Feel free to disagree! Post your take at thelantern.com.

“Only One Flo” Flo Rida

RYAN BOOK Arts editor book.15@osu.edu “She just turned 21. Now she’s all up in the club having hella fun.” This is the hook for Flo Rida’s song “21” and the low point of his new album “Only One Flo (Part One).” No Doubt filled the music world’s capacity for the word “hella” in 2001. Unfortunately, the album’s high points don’t get much better. In fact, the high point is the pair of guest verses by Ludacris and Gucci Mane in the track “Why You Up in Here.” Ludacris lights up the track, and Gucci has a so-so verse, but in comparison to the attempts of the album’s protagonist, he sounds golden. Aside from the guest verses, the album is unremarkable. “Club Can’t Handle Me,” the album’s single, would be completely forgettable if it weren’t for Top-40 radio’s constantly repeating play list. The lyrics for all this album’s songs are dumb, and other club-oriented artists (like the Black Eyed Peas) put Flo Rida’s beats to shame. Part of the problem is his inability to draw from his bag

Rapper souljas on and releases improved album

of ‘80s samples to create a hit. His hit from last year, “Right Round,” used the 1984 Dead Or Alive song “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” to be catchy. Flo Rida samples Yello’s “Oh Yeah” (recognizable from its use in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”) in “Turn Around (5,4,3,2,1)” but not for long enough to keep the listener hooked. The good news is that there are only eight tracks on the album. The bad news is that he built “part one” into the album’s title. It would take a lot for a follow-up record to be worse than this offering, but the odds of it being good are low. There’s only a half hour of music on “Only One Flo,” but it’s a half hour you’ll want back.

Soulja Boy has shown resiliency in his ability to survive past the cultural phenomenon that was “Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em.” His newest release, “The DeAndre Way,” holds more simple jams that come from the same place. Soulja Boy has polished his rhymes since “Tell ‘Em,” but nearly every track is a simple ode to either getting money or getting some; In other words, exactly what pop listeners want. It’s noteworthy that Soulja Boy’s music videos make great counterparts to the songs they advertise. Most rappers just pose in front of their expensive things while they sing about their expensive things, but music videos like that for “Speakers Going Hammer,” featuring Soulja Boy partying with his WASP neighbors, lend credibility to the track. Soulja Boy’s approach to hip-hop is often oversimplified, however. His rhymes are often awkward and sometimes veer into unintelligible laziness (also from “Speakers Going Hammer:” “Speakers going hammer / bammer, bammer, bammer”). “30 Thousand 100 Million” (about money, believe it or not) follows the same trend.

“The DeAndre Way” Soulja Boy

The album’s closing track, “Grammy,” stands out, probably because it strays from the adolescent themes of every other song. It opens with the rapper talking about the troubles he’s overcome, and the song that follows is equally mature. It’s the standout track, but listeners can’t help but laugh when they hear “I deserve a Grammy” coming from the artist who sang the nine previous tracks. Another unintentional moment of humor comes when Soulja Boy shares lines with 50 Cent. Our protagonist is trying to demonstrate how hardcore he can be on the track “Mean Mug,” but comparing his cottonpadded lines to 50’s quips about busting out the hollow tips is amusing. Soulja Boy is doing well with the formula he began with. With a few more tracks like “Grammy,” he might become a Soulja Man yet.

Book Club suggests… “The Last Days of

Ptolemy Grey” by Walter Mosley

Ptolemy Grey is a 91-year-old African-American living alone. He suffers from dementia, and if it weren’t for his great-grand nephew’s reminders, he wouldn’t even remember to eat. Grey’s nephew, Reggie, is the only one who pays the old man any attention. So when Reggie is killed in a drive-by shooting, Grey starts to lose hope. Seventeen-year-old Robyn Small, a family

Ladies from 1B

Tech gadgets make good gifts for women too The PINK collection from Victoria’s Secret is also popular for college-aged girls. The collection includes yoga pants, hoodies and T-shirts. Prices start around $25. If your girlfriend is a fashionista, American Eagle has plenty of options to satisfy her stylish side. Flannel shirts, fleece jackets and skinny jeans are very popular this season. Jeans start at $39.50. Sweaters start around $25, and embellished camisoles start at $20. Shoes are also a popular gift item for women.

The Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) is a good place to find brand name shoes for low prices. But remember to get the size of her shoe first. If the women in your life are into electronics and you’re willing to shell out extra cash, go to Best Buy. A 32GB iPod Touch starts at $299, and iTunes gift cards are good if she already has an iPod. If she likes to take pictures to post on Facebook, Best Buy has a sale on Canon Powershot cameras. For the readers on your gift list, a Barnes and Noble NOOK WiFi eReader comes in black or white, and prices start at $149. Or find out her favorite author and buy a book as a thoughtful gift. Finally, if the woman you’re shopping for loves things that sparkle, anything will work. But J.B. Robinson and Kay Jewelers have a line by Jane Seymour called the “Open Hearts Collection.”

friend, quickly takes Reggie’s place, however, and helps Grey clean up his apartment and takes him on trips to the grocery store. Grey is frustrated with his mental state, so when he is invited to take part in an experimental medical program that promises to clear his head, he quickly agrees even though the drug is guaranteed to end his life within the year. With a new, fresh outlook, he spends his last days researching his nephew’s tragic death.

The line offers earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and watches in sterling silver or white gold, and come with or without diamonds. Rings, earrings and necklaces start at $50. Bracelets start at $130. Watches are a bit more expensive, starting at $200. Gift cards are an easy way to let her get whatever she wants. But don’t rely on them because they are impersonal. If you’re still struggling to pick out the perfect gift for your girlfriend, mom or little sister, just ask her what she wants. That’s easier than wandering aimlessly around the mall for hours.

Gifts from 1B

Gift cards can make good gifts when thought out Kindle The Amazon Kindle is another tech gift he is sure to appreciate. He will have access to a huge library, and many OSU textbooks are available for the device at a discounted price. There are several models, but the $139 version is perfect for any OSU student. It doesn’t have 3G support, but the university’s Wi-Fi will let him download books anywhere on campus. The downside to the Kindle is that it takes many digital book purchases to break even on the cost of the unit itself. However, the great screen and Internet connectivity make up for this in spades. Flip Video The Flip Video is a slick, portable camcorder with high-definition video recording and an easy-to-use interface. The unit is as simple as a point-and-shoot camera and easily connects to the user’s computer via a built-in USB connection.

It’s the perfect present for anyone looking to dabble in video and is great for recording those crazy college hijinks that would otherwise be relegated to memory and legend. There is a wide array of cool accessories for the device, including tripods and underwater housings. The unit’s design can be customized on Flip’s website at no extra cost, so it’s easy to put together a gift that he’ll always remember. There are several models available, but the $149 UltraHD 4GB model is great for those who have regular access to a computer and don’t need to store lots of video on the camera. Netflix gift cards A Netflix gift card might seem like it’s in the same boring league as its retail brethren, but it’s truly one of those simple gifts that keeps on giving. Netflix has completely changed the way I view entertainment. I stream movies to my laptop between classes, watch HD television shows on my Xbox 360, and queue up tons of new Blu-ray releases as soon as they come out. All of that, plus no lines, no hassle and no late fees equals an awesome gift. You can purchase a three-month gift card for

roughly $27. If you want to avoid the “gift card feel,” set up the account for him and give him the log-in details. You could even customize things by putting a few movies you want to watch with him in queue. DVD boxed sets DVD boxed sets are great, as they are incredibly cheap this time of year. You can pick up titles such as “Dexter” and “Weeds” for as little as $20 if you catch them on sale. Every guy I know has some sort of boxed set collection. They’re great for killing time and perfect for diving into a television series. They’re also cool conversation pieces for parties, something that Netflix can’t offer. Customized Chuck Taylors If you want to score some extra cool points, consider getting him some customized Converse Chuck Taylors. They never go out of style, and he’ll always think of you when he puts them on. Converse’s website has tons of Chucks that can be customized in hundreds of ways, and the prices run between $58 and $80. However, it’s critical to order them right away. The shoes take three to four weeks to ship.

New headphones Although iPod earbuds might be part of the “college look,” their sound quality is best described as tinny and flat. A pair of noise-canceling, overthe-ear headphones will not only bring new life to a music aficionado’s MP3 player but will also provide a convenient way to drown out loud roommates. It is important to remember that you get what you pay for when it comes to headphones. A $20 pair will likely sound worlds better than stock iPod earbuds, but they will lack the bass response and overall fidelity of a Sony or Sennheiser set that costs around the $100 mark. As I mentioned earlier, it’s all about the experience. If you can put something together that is meaningful to both of you, any gift will do. The best ones will be the ones you can share together, so look for something creative and customizable.
