arts & life

Four fillings, four crowns, two root canals, about $6,000 and two years invested as a patient at the Ohio State College of Dentistry left Greg Morgan in what he calls a “medical and legal nightmare with no clear end in sight.” A simple toothache led Morgan, a 53-year-old handyman, to the OSU Emergency Dental Clinic in March 2006. His experience led him to file two lawsuits against the dental school claiming malpractice, breach of contract and fraudulent concealment, among others. He is seeking a total of $250,000. Last September, the case was temporarily postponed. A hearing is scheduled March 3 to determine when the case will resume. Morgan said his lawsuit stems from incomplete disclosure and lack of communication regarding his treatment. After being led down one treatment path and having a multitude of work done to accomplish his treatment goal, Morgan claims his plan was suddenly changed, leaving him confused, with unfinished dental work and no reimbursement of costs.

Morgan said he never knew the treatment plan he chose wouldn’t succeed. Dr. Peter Urbanik, a dentist at Brookview Dental in Sylvania, Ohio, said patients should be properly informed of possible disadvantages before the initiation of treatment. Urbanik said it is “stupid” that all departments involved in Morgan’s care didn’t consult with each other at the very beginning. “If your departments are so screwed up that they don’t want to sit in the same room together for five minutes, then they ought to be smacked,” Urbanik said. Morgan is litigating this case himself. However, Jeffrey Beausay, a trial attorney at The Donahey Law Firm in Columbus, believes Morgan will not get very far. “You better have a pretty good case if you take a medical malpractice case, otherwise you’re going to lose,” Beausay said, adding that medical malpractice suits are, themselves, arduous. At Morgan’s first examination in the emergency clinic, he was told he needed a root canal for his aching tooth, as well as other restorative work. After this visit, he was screened to determine if the work he needed was an appropriate “teaching case.”

He was then assigned to a student dentist. “I wanted to restore my teeth not for the aesthetics, but because I didn’t want to lose all my teeth,” Morgan said. Over the next several months, Morgan endured four fillings, but still needed additional work. Morgan was referred to advanced prosthodontics, a specialty area that

focuses on complex cases. He met with Dr. Julie Holloway, department director, to discuss treatment options. Holloway advised him it was essential to open his bite, or increase the height of his back teeth, to provide room in the front of his mouth for the placement of crowns. She

Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee spoke about the importance of interfaith dialogue in understanding one’s own faith Tuesday night at the St. Thomas More Newman Center. “You can’t understand your own faith until you understand what other people are doing,” Gee said. OSU has the largest population of Catholics, Baptists and Jews than any university in the country, Gee said. This diversity creates an open forum for students to discuss their faith. “What that means is that it’s a place that’s very safe for those of you who not only want to practice your religion but also to be engaged in the kind of community-building opportunities,” he said. During a question-and-answer session, Gee showed a moment of vulnerability, admitting some regrets. “I think out of all of the mistakes that I have made, perhaps the biggest mistake is to believe that my work is more important than my family or my faith,” Gee said. “I’m 65, 66 years old. I need to get over that. That’s not the life I want to lead.” Even so, Gee said his faith still defines him. “I don’t always practice my faith the way I would like to, but it has always been a part of who I am,” he said. But Gee said students shouldn’t isolate themselves to their own beliefs. “Some of our religious communities draw a circle around themselves and say, ‘We’re right and

Joe Ciccone, director of the center, said interfaith dialogue is a two-way street. “It shouldn’t be a threat,” Ciccone said. “It should

be an enhancement. We’re always in dialogue with the rest of the world.” Austin Schafer, pastoral associate for Campus

OSU AD, wife ‘team-teach’ business class CHRIS BIDERMAN Senior Lantern reporter biderman.1@osu.edu One of the benefits of a strong graduate program is learning from professors that can share their vast experiences within a field. In the case of Fisher College of Business’s Business of College Sports graduate course, it might have the most experienced professors possible. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith “team-teaches” the course alongside his wife, Sheila. The athletic program Smith oversees is the largest in the country in terms of number of student-athletes, sports, coaches and spending. “We both kind of share a passion for this thing called college sports,” Sheila said. “So it’s actually great fun, and it’s also challenging because the students are really smart.” Sheila handles most of what her husband calls the “heavy lifting” for the class and deals with the administrative and organizational duties of the class. Gene, juggling his duties as athletic director, takes time out of his schedule to conduct lectures twice a week during Autumn Quarter. “Probably one of the best classes I’ve had. I actually learned a lot and it was fun to go to,” said former OSU football player Scott Sika, who is earning his graduate degree in sports management. “(It had) a lot of guest speakers, which is good because you got all the aspects of the athletic department. Gene and Sheila did a good job of getting a variety of people.” Gene said he uses his clout to get some of the best guest speakers possible, including football coach Jim Tressel. The class takes a tour of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, culminating in a talk with Tressel about “our mission of creating an environment for student-athletes to be successful,” Gene said. The class also takes a tour of Ohio Stadium when it studies facility and event management. The curriculum covers all aspects of collegiate sports administration, including topics from compliance to marketing. According to the syllabus, the class looks at “the often delicate balance between its educational and business missions.” The Smiths said they work hard to keep the issues discussed in the class current.

campus Ice still hazardous as temperature rises JAMI JURICH For The Lantern jurich.4@osu.edu Although freezing temperatures have given way to warmer ones, ice and snow-related safety concerns continue. Facilities, Operations and Development did not say whether any areas of campus are more prone to falling ice and snow than others, but certain buildings are more susceptible because of their design, said Peter Calamari, the interim director for FOD Operations, in an e-mail. “Certain buildings, generally ones with steep pitch roofs and smaller gutters are more inclined to have issues with icicles and, to a lesser extent, falling snow,” Calamari said. Buildings on campus with roofs that acould be considered steep include Orton Hall and Enarson Hall. Calamari said problem areas are generally identified through building inspections or through the observation of either FOD staff or building occupants. Areas surrounded by trees could also be hazardous as icicles and snow might fall off tree branches, according to an FOD safety memo. FOD advised in the memo that people should not attempt to remove the hanging snow and ice themselves but instead report the problems to FOD.

Under-30 generation has an optimistic outlook on life, says Gee Ministry at the center, echoed Gee’s statements before the speech. “Catholics believe ecumenical and interfaith dialogue is part of our mission,” Schafer said. “The purpose is not to convert, it’s to learn. We have the opportunity to be a pioneer to show how interfaith dialogue should be done.” Gee also said the under-30 generation has a much more optimistic outlook on life than his generation, and this generation should not let tradition hold it back. “I think that tradition is very important, but also that tradition is a heavy hand,” Gee said. “We cannot think anew, we cannot think differently of the world. That kind of faith can be kind of debilitating.” Gee said faith can be part of the solution, too. “I think the importance of faith and really anything we do is really realizing that we will be the

When safety issues are identified, the area beneath the hazard is generally blocked off to prevent injuries. In rare cases, FOD uses a lift truck to knock large icicles off of overhangs, Calamari said. People should be aware of overhangs as these are usually one of the biggest problems, said Dr. Mark Moseley, who works in emergency medicine at the OSU Medical Center. Moseley said while injuries due to ice and snow are not usually a huge problem, people should still be cautious when walking outside in the winter. “I think it’s a fairly rare thing,” Moseley said. “But it is, I guess, something people should be aware of.” With the recent ice storm, however, injuries due to falls have been quite common this year, Moseley said. “We’ve seen a large volume of falls,” Moseley said, though he did not know the exact number of people the OSU Medical Center had seen so far this year. The Lantern reported that about 45 people were treated at the medical center Feb. 1 and about 50 people on Feb. 2 for ice-related injuries. Moseley said he does not expect to see any drastic changes in the volume of falls in the near future, even as the temperatures are expected to warm up in the coming days. Ariana Hoet, a fourth-year in psychology, said she’s never really been in an area where she doesn’t have a choice but to walk under the

overhangs so she generally just avoids them. She also said she doesn’t have any friends or know anyone who has been injured because of falling ice or snow. “I feel like my concern was when there was ice on the ground. I don’t really worry about icicles because I just don’t walk under them,” Hoet said. Although he thinks the number of falls will probably stay consistent, Moseley thinks the worst of the safety concerns due to snow and ice are probably over. Still, FOD is taking measures to reduce the risk of injury from melting ice and snow, Calamari said. Calamari said one of the main ways FOD tries to help reduce the risk is by increasing awareness about the problem. “Staff awareness is important,” Calamari said. He also said communicating with the campus community about the risks associated with melting ice and snow can be helpful. Although Calamari said there are rare occasions in which the costs of preventative measures can be expensive, “additional costs for this type of problem are minimal,” he said. Still, FOD is concerned about the safety of students, faculty and staff and advises people to be aware of the problem as the temperatures continue to rise. According to Weather.com, the high temperature is forecasted to be more than 50 degrees today, Thursday and Friday.

architects of change or we will be victimized by it,” he said. As the president of a public university, Gee said it’s important to show people that he does have religious beliefs, but that he is welcoming to all religious beliefs. “I think you practice your faith in private,” Gee said. “I happen to be a Mormon, but my responsibility is to make it clear that this university is going to protect everyone in terms of their religious beliefs and other kinds of issues.” David Bethel, a second-year in environmental science, said he was happy that Gee stressed the importance of interfaith dialogue. “Because Judaism, Islam and Christianity are based on the same principles, it’s important that we’re able to talk about our faith constructively,” Bethel said. Caroline Waidelich, a second-year in education, runs the Holy Grounds program at the center, and she agreed that interfaith dialogue has strengthened her own faith. “Hearing and talking about what other people feel helps you strengthen your faith,” Waidelich said.

45-minute presentation and 25-page paper are part of class work Those lectures included the financial and marketing aspects of the tournament along with the possibility of expansion. “He explained what goes on and everything and it was pretty cool to hear what he thought,” Sika said. The goal of the course is to provide students with the ability to create business solutions facing collegiate athletics administrations. “Our goal in the class is students move from out of the student section where they enjoy the fun of college athletics and try to learn the perspective of college athletics sitting in the athletic director’s chair,” Sheila said. The Smiths discussed their affinity for their students’ feedback and contributions to the course. “When they see the business side of college sports and what goes on behind the scenes, the feedback we get is that they find it really interesting,” Sheila said. Gene said students can ask any question during the last 20 minutes of each class. He said students have had some intriguing ideas on how to improve OSU’s sports programs, which included the genesis of moving students’ seats for men’s basketball games to the sidelines behind the bench in the Schottenstein Center. “It is wonderfully stimulating. The students are brilliant and we enjoy it thoroughly. We have taught at every university that we’ve worked at,”

Sheila said. “It’s a way for us to keep in touch with the academic part of the campus and to really be directly in touch with students.” Aside from the usual required readings and discussions, the workload in the course requires student groups of seven to create a 45-minute presentation on a topic of their choosing and compile a 25-page paper to accompany the presentation. Few couples have the opportunity to teach a graduate-level class together, but it’s one that the Smiths attribute partly to the strength of their relationship. “I just do what she tells me to do. We’re good friends,” Gene said. “We have great open and honest communication. We have the same goals in life. Teaching is something we both enjoy and have always enjoyed. So it works extremely well.” Gene, OSU’s first African-American athletic director, has been running university athletic programs for almost 27 years. A former football player and coach at Notre Dame, Gene has also worked at Arizona State, Iowa State and Eastern Michigan as athletic director before taking the job at OSU in March 2005. Sheila also comes from background in athletics and earned a doctorate degree in higher education administration. Before becoming the associate athletic director of University of Nevada Las Vegas, she was a member of Canada’s 1976 Olympic basketball team where she played center. She’s now a dual citizen. The couple met at an athletic administrative conference 20 years ago and has been married for 15 years with four children: Matt, Nicole, Lindsey and Summer.

he can’t afford a lawyer presented two possible treatment plans. Morgan was unsure of which plan to choose, so he asked Holloway for her opinion. Morgan said she recommended the option that included the use of braces to extrude Morgan’s back teeth, thus opening his bite. This plan was estimated at $17,000. On Morgan’s screening evaluation document, it is noted that plans discussed were not considered final. Yet, Morgan says he was not informed that the treatment plan was tentative in any way. Morgan then met with his pre-doctoral provider, Joe Landry, who told him restorative work had to be complete before consultation with orthodontics. This included placement of four gold crowns on Morgan’s back teeth. Before Morgan committed to one of the two proposed treatment plans, Landry met with Holloway to discuss the case, where it was confirmed that treatment using extrusion was preferred. In court discovery documents, Landry wrote that he then “repeated words and ideas directly from discussion with Holloway (to Morgan).” In Morgan’s request of admissions documents, however, the College of Dentistry denied that this treatment plan involving extrusion was an option. The document also states “such extrusion was never recommended to this patient.” When The Lantern contacted Holloway, she referred all questions to Jim Lynch, director of OSU media relations. Lynch said OSU doesn’t discuss cases in active litigation. All other parties contacted from the OSU College of Dentistry refused to comment. Now confident in his decision, which Holloway and Landry confirmed, Morgan began restorative treatment. His first crown was placed in October 2007. One month later, his treatment took a turn. During Morgan’s appointment, a dentist in primary care inquired about Morgan’s treatment plan. Morgan said the dentist told him that extrusion of teeth — slightly pulling out teeth to elongate them — is difficult and relapse was probable. “I was stunned,” Morgan said. “No one had ever told me any of this.”

Hall then escorted Morgan to the orthodontics clinic, where a faculty member assured him that extrusion was possible. Morgan said he began feeling wary of his treatment. Morgan met with his orthodontic resident, Dr. Matthew Ames, to discuss his next step: braces. Diagnostic records were taken, and Morgan was to be contacted in the next few weeks with his orthodontic treatment plan. Morgan said Ames never called. He continued restorative treatment and had another crown placed. In January 2008, he met with Ames, who stated the planned extrusion was not necessary and the clinic was devising another treatment plan. Morgan wondered why he had already had two gold crowns placed already if extrusion was now unnecessary. “I hadn’t wanted gold crowns and only allowed them to be placed based on Dr. Holloway’s advice that they would withstand the extrusion process better than porcelain,” Morgan said. According to Morgan, Ames then whispered to him, “They’ll probably redo those crowns for free if you twist a few arms.” Ames declined to comment. Morgan said he continued with treatment because he saw no other option. Before placement of Morgan’s final crown, he needed a root canal, and thus met with Dr. Rachel Matthews of advanced endodontics. Morgan said Matthews asserted that extrusion of his back teeth was not necessary, but also not advisable. Matthews could not be reached for comment. “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” Morgan said. Morgan said this was the first time he was told extrusion was not advisable. According to Morgan’s admissions documents, Matthews could not recall this conversation. Morgan’s last crown was placed, after which he met with graduate prosthodontic resident Dr. Mohammed Abdelhamed. After another diagnostic examination, Morgan had hopes of continuing treatment, yet he said Abdelhamed didn’t contact him for several months. When they met in June 2008, Abdelhamed revealed a new treatment plan, omitting orthodontics. Morgan said he didn’t feel comfortable with Abdelhamed’s proposal, believing it was “riddled with compromises” and created on the fly just to avoid a lawsuit.

Abdelhamed could not be reached for comment. “I was convinced that the clinic had made a mistake and they would not admit it,” Morgan said. After asking numerous questions in an attempt to understand where his initial treatment plan went wrong, Morgan decided to again meet with Holloway, but he first met with College of Dentistry Dean Carole Anderson for advice on how to proceed. He requested confidentiality. However, the meeting didn’t remain confidential. According to Morgan, at his September 2008 meeting with Holloway, she mentioned Morgan’s conversation with Anderson, who also declined to comment. Morgan said Holloway, for the first time, then admitted extrusion was not possible. “I inquired as to why I had pursued an irreversible treatment plan, only to be told at the last minute this was not advisable,” Morgan said. “I asked why she had not determined this before I had a year’s worth of work done.” Morgan and Holloway then began discussing how to continue. Holloway told Morgan he could continue with the alternative treatment option first presented, but only after paying to have his new crowns removed. “I don’t think I should have to pay for their mistakes,” Morgan said. “I put these crowns on thinking they could extrude my teeth and now they can’t?” Living in a Lancaster cabin with no running water, Morgan said he is poor, which is why he initially sought treatment at OSU. Morgan said if OSU would have been straightforward upon discovery of his treatment plan’s flaws and recommended he start again at an adjusted rate, he would have agreed. Morgan contacted Dr. Edwin Kluth, an OSU alum and prosthodontist in West Virginia, about a year ago. “It didn’t seem like he was asking for anything other than to get back on track and it seemed like there could be a way for that to happen,” Kluth said. “I’m not even sure why it didn’t happen. I think he just wanted things to get going in the right direction, which, given this day in age, is not unreasonable.” In an attempt to help settle the lawsuit, Kluth contacted OSU; however, he was told that it had gone too far. Kluth said he wanted to help because it seemed like a situation that could be fixed with more discussion. He also emphasized that he wants his alma mater to be seen in a good light. He added that it can be tricky to coordinate treatment when many clinics are involved. Urbanik agrees. “You’ve got to keep the communication going if you’ve got multiple departments,” he said. “Everybody’s got to be on board from the get go.”

At Morgan’s last meeting with Holloway, the same meeting in which he felt his confidentiality was breached, she informed him that he was not a good candidate for the clinic and dismissed him as a patient. In Morgan’s clinic chart, Holloway documented that she informed him that the difficulty in starting treatment, his request for refunds and the threat of contacting an attorney led to his dismissal. She also wrote the patient left on good terms. Morgan disagrees. Morgan began contacting attorneys, but soon realized he could not afford one. He spent months researching medical malpractice, then filed two lawsuits in the Court of Claims last March. He also found an expert witness to sign an affidavit of merit in his case. Because OSU is a state institution, lawsuits must be filed in the Court of Claims, where only a judge is present, no jurors. “If you think about that, the judge who decides the case is an employee of the defendant,” Beausay said. “Does that seem fair? It doesn’t seem fair to me. You never know who the judge is going to be, but you do know that judge is going to be employed by the state of Ohio.” Ted Hart, deputy director of media relations for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, declined to comment on the lawsuit. Morgan also filed a case against Holloway, Ames and Abdelhamed in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, claiming they acted with malice and recklessness. Because the dentists work for a state institution, Morgan cannot sue them personally because they can be granted immunity. Morgan is asking for this immunity be lifted. “I have not taken any action against Joe Landry because he has been completely honest throughout this ordeal,” Morgan said. Landry, a 2009 graduate of the OSU College of Dentistry, now practices in Tallmadge, Ohio. “This is now between the College of Dentistry and Mr. Morgan,” Landry wrote in an e-mail. Morgan said he would hire an attorney if he could afford one. “I think it’s a sad state of affairs in America when the justice system is taken, literally, out of the hands of the common man, and no matter what you want to do, you have to pay a lawyer thousands of dollars,” Morgan said. Morgan is placing his faith in the judge that is presiding over this case. Morgan said he hopes his case will help change clinic operations to protect other patients from experiencing a “house of horrors” experience. “I have no choice, I have to have faith. I can’t just go away, I can’t quit,” Morgan said. “This has destroyed my life for two years. It’s all I think about.”

student voice Valentine’s Day has turned into a commercial holiday LANTERN Columnist

Monday, as I’m sure you’re all aware, was Valentine’s Day — the one day a year when everyone’s obsessed with love, romance and those chalky little candy hearts. For one day, the whole world, it seems, divides into two groups: the hopeless romantics and the hopeless cynics. You know what I mean. The romantics go on dates, buy flowers and sigh over all the cupids and hearts and teddy bears. The cynics, on the other hand, wear grimaces and black all day and bemoan the commercialization of love. There’s no arguing that Valentine’s Day has become a commercial holiday. For all the talk of romance and true love, Valentine’s Day as we know it wouldn’t be complete without the jewelry, the cards, the candy, the flowers, the romantic dinners at swanky restaurants. As nice as all those things are (and believe me, I wouldn’t turn down most of them), I think that all of the focus on tangible things on Valentine’s Day distracts

us from what the holiday really stands for. At its heart (if you’ll pardon the pun), Valentine’s Day boils down to love. On Feb. 14, we celebrate the people we love by buying them gifts and taking them to dinner. But really, shouldn’t love be about more than that? Shouldn’t we show our loved ones that we care all year round? Buying your girlfriend a diamond in February is not going to make up for the fact that you don’t show you care during the rest of the year.

Obviously, this column is not going to change how anyone acted for this year’s Valentine’s Day. But next year, think about what your loved ones mean to you — can that really be summed up with a card and a bouquet of roses from Giant Eagle? Love is an invaluable part of the human experience, in all its forms. We should celebrate love however it appears, because there is really nothing like it. While the commercialization of Valentine’s Day, in my opinion, obscures the true spirit of the holiday, I don’t think that it’s necessary or reasonable to eschew all of the red and pink trappings of the holiday. The problem isn’t the Valentine’s products in and of themselves — the problem is the act of replacing love and true expression of emotion with said products. Besides, without Valentine’s candy there’d be no post-Valentine’s half-off candy sales.

Ipods, iPads and more: We rely on technology too often LANTERN Columnist

I was filling out an application a few nights ago, and one of the questions asked “If you could trade places with any other person for a week, with whom would it be?” Without even thinking twice, I typed this question into google.com. As soon as I hit enter on my keyboard, I realized two things: 1. I didn’t even try to answer the question myself. 2. My dependence on the RUBINA KAPIL Internet has truly reached new kapil.5@osu.edu heights. As I exited out of Internet Explorer, I learned a lot about where we, the “technology generation,” stand in today’s society. Although many of us have accepted that we are the technology generation, we often push this aside as not being a problem. However, I’ve realized the past few days that this indeed is a problem. By using technology for most aspects of our lives, we are losing a number of skills. The skill to creatively design, to write letters, to develop our own ideas and even to talk on the phone are overshadowed by the luxury of computers. What more is left? We have forgotten how to not only think for ourselves, but how to spend time without using technology. Often times when I log onto the Internet to check my grades on Carmen, I unconsciously type in facebook.com and end up there instead. The sad part is, I know I’m not alone. Many of us have become so accustomed to using the enjoyable aspects of the Internet, we often use those web sites more so than the important ones. We need to realize that life goes beyond the Internet, iPhones and iPods. These objects of technology are there to aid us in life, not be our lives. This is much easier said than done, even for myself. I will probably continue to use technology in the same manner for quite a while. But I hope reading this will help others realize what I have the past few days: The level of dependence we have on the Internet and technology is unhealthy and intensifying with younger generations. We need to become aware of how we are, and at least attempt to decrease how often we use these objects. Perhaps in doing so, we can show younger generations that they can live in today’s society without being how we are, and they can fill out applications without initially making the mistake I did.

The Ohio State men’s basketball team poses for a photo. The Buckeyes are in first place in the Big Ten standings.

Basketball team representing Ohio State well both on and off the court Letter to the editor ty henkaline henkaline.6@osu.edu All too often the wonderfully talented athletes we have here at Ohio State catch a bad rap for things they do off the field. One need not look too far into the recent past for examples, with the most striking being the events surrounding a few of our football players late last fall. In contrast, the good deeds they do off the field seem to receive much less attention. Here is a little story about such a good deed that I had the good fortune of hearing about first-hand on Tuesday. It is one of those good deeds for which the deed doers expected no attention or reward. But I think it is safe to say, they really deserve it. Almost every day I grab lunch from Mirror Lake Café. Over the past

few months I have come to know the staff fairly well, and so many of us greet one another when we see each other. They are quite courteous folks. Tuesday, when I greeted one staff member, she returned my greeting with much more enthusiasm than usual. As she said hello, she was all smiles, and her face was glowing with pride. I asked her what was up. She went on to tell me that the basketball team, who she often took orders from this summer, had all signed a basketball and then delivered it to her today. She said, “And I thought they had forgotten about me.” Then she said excitedly, “Even Coach Matta signed it!” Hearing this story made me feel really great. It made me feel great to hear of such a kind, selfless act by such a talented and, I imagine, busy group of people. And it made me feel great to see the way she responded to it. It meant the world to her.

Students should be aware of conflict in Sudan

4A

Sudan army and a rebel group has left 211 people dead, many of whom were civilians ensnared in the fighting, according to an Associated Press report. Nevertheless, no where is the conflict more pervasive than in Darfur. The paramount reason for the insurrection in Darfur involves ethnic clashes between the government-backed Arab militia, the Janjaweed, and the rebel forces comprised of Christian and traditional Southern Africans. Stephanie Sobek, a third-year ANUSREE GARG in political science and Middle garg.30@osu.edu Eastern studies and president of the Ohio State chapter of STAND, an anti-genocide coalition, explains that the incumbent president of Sudan, al-Bashir, “hired the Janjaweed militia and they systematically killed all the African descendents in Darfur.” She goes on to elaborate on the scale of the atrocity: “It’s so brutal. The Janjaweed militia would burn villages, and rape the women and children, and run the men off the villages. A lot of those refugees moved to Chad.” Recently STAND held a fundraiser to help raise awareness for the ongoing conflict in Darfur. Sobek, sporting a shirt with the club’s motto, “don’t stand by, stand up,” introduced the comically radiant 8th Floor Improv troupe as it helped generate a commendable amount of donations that will go directly into assisting people displaced by the Darfur genocide. Still, since Darfur will remain a part of Northern Sudan, the prospect of a dissolved insurgency seems grim. As South Sudan’s secession moves forward, a changing paradigm may take hold in Africa. Sudan has redrawn its own borders — the first to do so in a continent encumbered with the arbitrarily defined borders of its colonial past. Countries, such as Niger or those in the Ivory Coast with similar tensions, may look to Sudan as setting a precedent; secession could become the go-to solution. However, partition is no panacea: It does not ensure ethnic homogeneity, fair resource distribution or transparent leadership.

LANTERN Columnist

Last week, thousands of Southern Sudanese, eagerly anticipating the final results of January’s referendum on South Sudan’s secession from its northern counterpart, waited to hear President Omar al-Bashir announce the status of the remaining votes. Despite the population having generally surmised the overall outcome of the vote to be in favor of the secession, the announcement generated a sense of relief among the anxious crowds since it signaled al Bashir’s almost uncharacteristically cooperative acceptance of these results. In this vote, 98.83 percent of Southern Sudanese, an overwhelming majority, supported an independent South Sudan, which will be formally declared as the world’s newest country in July, according to The New York Times. Though the announcement of the future partition was met with a resounding celebratory reception, there are evident points of discord and matters for hard deliberation that will need to be addressed during the six-month wait until South Sudan is permanently established. The most obviously basic of these concerns is the creation of a new government. South Sudan will need a president — and he will come in the form of the cowboy hat devotee, Salva Kiir, the current vice president of Sudan and leading proponent of Southern secession. Admired for his role as the unifying voice among different Southern ethnic groups, Kiir, with his highly militarized background, has yet to be tested out in presidential waters. Accordingly, an accountable and competent new government is not automatically ensured. A second, more dramatic issue relates to the North and South’s heavy dependence on oil revenues. However, it is only the South that possesses the majority of the oil fields. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) of 2005, that engendered the recent referendum, also calls for equal oil distribution between these two regions. Noting the aridity of the North and the visibly and comparatively lush greenery of the South, the paucity of oil in the North becomes more apparent and teeters on precariousness. This friction is demonstrably reflected in the currently contested oil-rich area of Abyei. The CPA initially proposed a joint referendum for the vote on Southern secession and the decision of Abyei to stay with the North or join the new South. Yet, since voter eligibility in this area is still being disputed, Abyei’s referendum is attached to an undetermined date. The latest wave of violence that challenged the mood of jubilation in South Sudan was in the Jonglei state; clashes between Southern

Last week, The UN Security Council met to discuss the ongoing situation in Sudan. In the presidential statement released, the Security Council encouraged “the international community to lend its full support to all Sudanese people as they build a peaceful and prosperous future.” With a complementary stance, Sobek urges OSU students to get involved as the conflict ensues in Sudan. Outlining a primary goal of STAND, Sobek says “we educate ourselves about different areas and spread that education.” Though, as Sobek advises, a good starting point for all students “is just becoming aware of the problem.”

Buckeyes headed back to top? No. 2 Ohio State beats Michigan State night after No. 1 Kansas’ fall to Kansas State nick otte Senior Lantern reporter otte.28@osu.edu With less than six minutes to go, and No. 2 Ohio State up just five on unranked Michigan State, an errant Spartan pass flew into the backcourt and nine of the 10 players on the floor seemed content to let it roll out of bounds. OSU freshman point guard Aaron Craft wouldn’t allow it. Craft chased the ball down. As the Spartans tried to recover, he went up and under the rim for a layup, drew a foul and converted the three-point play. The freshman’s only field goal of the night gave OSU (25-1, 12-1 Big Ten) an eight-point lead and propelled the Buckeyes to a 71-61 victory. “That’s a heck of a play right there,” senior guard Jon Diebler said after the game. “That’s just someone wanting the win and Aaron is a guy who, he does the little things and that just shows the type of player that he is. That was a huge play.” The Spartans played most of the game like the team they were projected to be when they entered the season at No. 2. Outscoring the Buckeyes off the bench, 21-1, MSU shot 63 percent from the field in the first half. With freshman forward Jared Sullinger on the bench in foul trouble, MSU matched the Buckeyes shot-for-shot all half. A basket from senior point guard Kalin Lucas gave MSU a 34-32 lead with 1:30 left in the half, but Buford responded with a 3-pointer, giving OSU the lead, one of 11 lead changes in the first 20 minutes. OSU took that 35-34 lead to halftime, and Buford’s 14 first-half points put him ahead of all scorers. “We didn’t bring it in the first half,” Buford said. “Our defense

wasn’t there and we weren’t together as a team. For the second half we had to pick up the intensity.” The lead changed hands four more times early in the second half, and a fifth time when a three-point play from fifth-year senior forward David Lighty gave OSU a 45-44 lead. That was the game’s final lead change. Lighty sparked a 10-2 run, opening up a six-point OSU lead, 52-46. An off-balance, end-of-theshot-clock 3-pointer from junior forward Draymond Green ended the run, and after a Sullinger free throw, a layup from Lucas cut the lead to two. Five quick points from Buford gave OSU a 58-51 lead, its biggest to that point, with 8:30 to play. Minutes later, Craft made the play that ignited the sellout crowd at the Schottenstein Center. “Aaron is like a spark plug for this team,” OSU coach Thad Matta said. “I think guys are looking and saying, ‘If he’s going to give that (effort), then I’m going to give that.’” The Spartans got as close as four down the stretch, but a pair of Sullinger free throws and three from Craft gave OSU an insurmountable 10-point lead with less than two minutes left. Buford led all scorers with 23 points on 9-for-15 shooting, 3-for-4 from beyond the 3-point line. Sullinger scored 11 points and grabbed a season-low two rebounds. Lighty and Diebler had 12 points each. Lucas led MSU with 14 points, and although the team shot 57 percent from the floor and outrebounded OSU, its 19 turnovers swung the game in OSU’s favor. After falling at Wisconsin on Saturday, OSU relinquished the No. 1 rank to Kansas, who lost at Kansas State, 84-68, Monday night. OSU plays again at 1 p.m. Sunday at No. 11 Purdue.

Women’s soccer adds 9 to roster The Ohio State women’s soccer team announced Friday the signing of nine members to the 2011 recruiting class. Coach Lori Walker said the class, which includes one forward, four midfielders, two defenders, a midfielder/forward and a defender/midfielder, “brings a variety of individual talents that add depth to each line and continue our tradition of hardworking Buckeyes.” Walker said OSU has a tradition of recruiting players from California and Canada, something the university continued this year. Students from Ohio, California, Connecticut and Canada make up the 2011 recruiting class. Walker said she has high expectations for the new group of Buckeyes. “The résumés of each of these players are plastered with individual and team accolades,” she said. “Winning is in their blood.” Big Ten Co-Player of the Week Lavender becomes Buckeyes’ leading career scorer After their strong performances in the Buckeyes’ wins against Purdue and Minnesota last week, two members of the Ohio State women’s basketball team earned Big Ten weekly honors. Senior center Jantel Lavender was named Big Ten Co-Player of the Week, and center Ashley

Adams was named Freshman of the Week. Lavender became OSU’s leading career scorer when she reached 2,587 points in Sunday’s win against Minnesota. Katie Smith held the previous record with 2,578 points. The senior averaged 25 points, 9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game last week. Getting 13 points and 10 rebounds, Adams recorded her first career double-double in the Buckeyes’ win at Minnesota on Sunday. In the same game, she had a career-high six blocks and four steals. Adams averaged 11.5 points, 8 rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game last week. The Buckeyes return to action when they host Penn State at 7 p.m. Thursday. Treleaven earns 2 weekly accolades Ohio State gymnast Jeff Treleaven swept the Big Ten men’s gymnastics awards, being named Gymnast and Freshman of the Week after helping to lead the No. 8 Buckeyes to victory against No. 19 Brockport, from Brockport, N.Y., on Saturday. Treleaven scored season-highs of 16.100 and 14.950 on the vault and floor exercise, respectively, earning first place in both. He tied for third after earning a 13.650 on the parallel bars. The team’s next matchup is at 1 p.m. Saturday at Penn State.

Like a fine wine, Buford’s play getting better with age ben axelrod Senior Lantern reporter axelrod.17@osu.edu Earlier this season, Ohio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta described junior guard William Buford as a player who gets better as the season wears on. Considering Buford’s play lately, it’s easy to see Matta was right. Buford has been the Buckeyes’ leading scorer in each of the team’s past two games, the latest being a 23-point performance in OSU’s 71-61 win against Michigan State (14-11, 6-7 Big Ten) on Tuesday night. With OSU’s leading scorer for the season, freshman forward Jared Sullinger, playing only 11 minutes in the first half because of foul trouble, it was Buford who ignited the Buckeyes with 14 first-half points, two of which came on a driving one-handed dunk that brought the sold-out Schottenstein Center crowd to its feet. “They was closing out on me pretty hard ’cause I was making some shots there at the beginning,” Buford said. “I just head-faked and jabbed, and the lane lifted open and I just took it.” Buford’s soaring jam wasn’t the only memorable play of the night from the guard from Toledo, Ohio. With the Buckeyes trailing by two with less than two minutes remaining in the first

6A

half, Buford drained a 3-point shot right in front of MSU coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans’ bench to give OSU a 35-34 lead into halftime. Buford credited the big three to some motivation from the Spartans. “One of their big men started talking stuff to me and got me fired up. I was trying to get going just to shut them up,” Buford said. “My teammates were able to get me the ball, and I had a good look and I knocked it down.” Buford’s stellar play carried into the second half when he recaptured the lead for the Buckeyes with a layup, OSU’s first two points of the half. After a layup by MSU guard Kalin Lucas cut OSU’s lead to two with less than 10 minutes left, Buford answered with a 3-pointer, and then converted a Spartan turnover into a jump shot, extending the lead to seven. “He was very dialed in, very focused going into the game,” Matta said. “He had a good look in his eye. He made a couple shots early, kind of got rolling.” Despite Buford’s 23 points, which came on an efficient 9-for-15 shooting, Matta said he was most impressed with Buford’s play on the other end of the floor. “The biggest thing tonight was his defense. I thought William did a great job defending,” Matta said. “Chasing screens, trailing screens, whatever we asked him to do, helping. I thought he was very, very active, and that was good.”

According to chilliworld.com emiLy coLLaRD / Lantern designer

Firth and Portman going for Oscar gold Best Actor The winner of Best Actor seems to be pretty clear this year, but who deserves to win is less easy to pinpoint. Colin Firth, in his precise and immersive performance as a stuttering, put-upon king in “The King’s Speech” is certainly poised to win the award. Firth has been the favorite throughout the awards season, so it is easy to overlook the other competitors in this category, a few of whom are especially strong. In the film “127 Hours,” James Franco performs nearly the entire film in one location (trapped in a cave, pinned by a rock), but keeps the audience attentive the whole time with his fearless, no-holdsbarred performance. Jesse Eisenberg of “The Social Network,” on the other hand, leads a terrific ensemble cast. He really embodies Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, in an

interesting and unconventional way. He allows the audience to hate him and admire him at the same time, and delivers Aaron Sorkin’s razor-sharp dialogue impeccably. Jeff Bridges is solid and dependable as the lead in the Coen Brothers’ “True Grit,” but has a less flashy performance than the other frontrunners. And, thanks to an impassioned plea by Julia Roberts, Javier Bardem found his way to a very surprising nomination for his performance in “Biutiful.” His performance is notable because it’s the first performance done entirely in Spanish to receive a Best Actor nod. Best Actress Annette Bening and Natalie Portman are at the top of those running for the Best Actress award this year. They are from two very different films, but one is surely taking the lead over the other as the season concludes.

anDReW FacToR For The Lantern factor.24@osu.edu Until the release of “Black Swan,” Bening of “The Kids Are All Right” was a lock to the win with her interesting and brutally funny performance

as a lesbian mother in crisis. But then Portman, giving this year’s most audacious and unflinching performance, quickly became the frontrunner for the award with her ballet tour-de-force in “Black Swan.” I still wouldn’t count out Bening, however. The Academy has snubbed her more than once and she might just get her due this year, although I wouldn’t count on it. Michelle Williams’ subtle and pained performance in “Blue Valentine” (paired with her grievously snubbed co-star, Ryan Gosling), gives the most heartbreaking performance in this category, but is overpowered by Portman and Bening. Nicole Kidman, in another powerful performance, plays a grieving mother well in “Rabbit Hole,” but doesn’t exhibit enough hysterics in the film to win. And Jennifer Lawrence, the impressive 17-year-old of “Winter’s Bone,” will have to be happy to just be nominated in her breakout role.

Those looking for a break from the cold winter weather can look to the eighth annual Fiery Foods Weekend. Mary Martineau, director of marketing for the North Market, said the festival has typically been a one-day event, but because of popularity, is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday this year. The festival opens at 10 a.m. on both days and admission is free. With this year’s added day, Martineau said more events have been added to the schedule. New events include a guacamole-making contest as well as several eating contests. A total of four eating contests will take place over the course of the weekend, according to North Market’s website. A fiery cornbread-eating contest is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m., followed by a jalapeno-eating contest at 3:30 p.m. Sunday’s contests will include a hot ice cream sundae-eating contest at 2:30 p.m., as well as a hot wing-eating competition at 3:30 p.m. Those wishing to compete in the contests can register at the North Market the day of the event. Cooking contests include a professional and amateur chili competition, amateur hot sauce competition and an amateur salsa-making contest. Those who want to taste the entries in the chili competition can pay $5 for a ticket, Martineau said. The North Market is providing more opportunities to sample spicy foods by offering a $12 brunch on Sunday morning. The spicy brunch will be set up as a buffet in the upper level of the North Market, and will run from 10-11:30 a.m., according to North Market’s website. Sue Hard of CaJohn’s Fiery Foods, located in both the North Market and in Westerville, said a food’s spiciness level is ranked using a method called the Scoville Scale. “Wilbur Scoville started the test,” she said. “The units are based on a sugar water mixture and the rating is based on how many teaspoons of the mixture it would take to offset any detectable heat.” One of the chilis CaJohn’s Fiery Foods uses in its products is called the ghost chili. It has a Scoville rating of more than 1 million, which means it would take more than 1 million teaspoons of sugar water to counteract the spiciness of the chili. In comparison, the average jalapeño pepper has a rating of 2,000, Hard said. High levels of spiciness can also be found at Ohio State’s dining facilities. Chef Mark Newton of Campus Dining Services said there is now a flavor station at the North Commons dining facility that allows students to give their dish an extra kick. The flavor station has nine spices and four spicy sauces that patrons can use. But not every one likes spicy food. “We have wing night and several other spicy dishes, but we can’t make them classically spicy because it would annihilate 90 percent of our guests,” Newton said. The flavor station is in a test run this quarter. There are plans to roll the flavor station out to other campus dining locations if it goes well, Newton said.

Jesse mclean’s ‘magic for Beginners’ will be one of the films shown at The Wexner center’s ‘Look at our Life now’ event.

Dani Leventhal and Jesse McLean, two filmmakers who are scheduled to present a screening of video shorts at the Wexner Center, shared their motivations, ideas and inspirations behind their films. Leventhal and McLean will be introducing “Look At Our Life Now,” a program that will show a handful of videos and short films as a part of the Wexner’s “Visiting Filmmakers” series. The women each have two short films during the program and will answer questions from the audience after the screening is over. “I’m excited to be screening at the Wexner Center because I admire that place so much,” McLean said. “It’s always fun to

present your work to a new audience and I think this audience will be savvy because the Wexner always presents exciting and interesting stuff.” She said the chance to show her work at the Wexner is an opportunity she would never turn down, even if she had a scheduling conflict. Her two short films are “Magic for Beginners” and “The Eternal Quarter Inch.” “Magic for Beginners” is a 20-minute piece that focuses on the intense fandoms that are generated by the media’s focus on certain events, people or movies. Footage includes hundreds of fans of the “Twilight” films mobbing the film’s star, Robert Pattinson, as he tries to get into a vehicle. The film also had clips of people trying to make themselves cry, as if they were auditioning for a movie. “I guess I’m really interested in human

arts&life OMG: Usher visiting Schott

Comedy competition stops at Union

Ryan Book Arts editor book.15@osu.edu

James Garcia Senior Lantern reporter garcia.299@osu.edu

R&B star Usher is scheduled to perform at the Schottenstein Center in May as part of his “OMG Tour.” The vocalist made the announcement on his website on Thursday that he was adding a second North American leg to the tour, including a stop in Columbus. The previous leg of the tour did not feature any Ohio stops. The current leg will also stop at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, according to his website. Usher’s last stop in Columbus was at the Schottenstein Center in 2005 as part of the “Truth” tour, which featured opening act Kanye West. Usher released two albums in 2010, “Raymond v. Raymond” and “Versus,” which featured the tour’s titular track “OMG” and “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love Again,” respectively. “Versus” peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Charts, which ended a streak of three albums that debuted at No. 1, including “Raymond v. Raymond.”

Usher performs at the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 6. Usher has performed in several high profile gigs recently, including supporting the Black Eyed Peas during the Super Bowl halftime show and collaborating with Justin Bieber for the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

About 100 Ohio State students took Valentine’s Day standing up. Monday was Rooftop Comedy’s fourth annual National College Comedy Competition presented by TBS, where students from 32 American universities try to out-stand each other for a chance to perform at the Just For Laughs comedy festival. “It’s been amazing to watch this competition grow over the past four years into the largest comedy series of its kind,” said Will Rogers, the Rooftop CEO, on NCCC’s website. The favorite eight comedians were selected by audience vote to form OSU’s comedy team. Four of whom are current members of OSU’s 8th Floor Improv Comedy Group, who perform around campus. Xavier Dunson, a third-year in biomedical engineering and a member of 8th Floor, stood up for the audience and posed this question: “If I got AIDS from Cher, would I have a case of the charades?” This and other clever one-liners earned him a spot on the OSU comedy team. Many of those who performed can be seen each week working on their routines at local bars on open mic stand-up nights. But for some, it was the first time they’d performed their routine in public. “It was fun,” said Chris Pilkington, a third-year in journalism. “It was clearly my first time — my

The eight members of each comedy team will be filmed and profiled on the TBS website, according to TBS.com. The audience and a panel of judges will select four members of each comedy team to advance as the starting lineup. Of the 21 comedians who signed up, 13 people didn’t make as big of an impression on the audience’s funny bones. But they didn’t go down without a few laughs. Mark Hale, 24, a former member of 8th Floor, gave a laughable performance, but wasn’t selected as a finalist. “My buddy used to know the drummer of Panic! at the Disco, but that was back when they were just Mild Disturbance at the Prom,” he said. Hale said he wasn’t sure if he was going to perform, having been told it was going to be a lineup of only 20 students. But after some of the listed comedians failed to show up, he said the fact he was able to perform was enough for him. After dwindling the contestants down to the four funniest college students, they will perform at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Chicago in June alongside well-known comedians such as Ellen DeGeneres and Cedric the Entertainer.

arts&life Lantern cD Reviews Harvey shakes both Bright Eyes’ music England and listener is still illuminating PaTRick BRennan Lantern reporter brennan.164@osu.edu Few words can encapsulate the latest PJ Harvey release, “Let England Shake.” Lead singer Polly Jean Harvey (“PJ”), whose style also rejects any possibility of labeling, takes listeners on a familiar yet fresh musical journey as she paints vivid pictures of World War I. Harvey’s tendency to fuse jazz and blues sounds with art rock is as evident as ever. Her bluesy disposition pairs well with the WWI storyline of the album. Harvey spins a yarn on “The Last Living Rose,” a catchy tune with real “pub anthem” potential. The bugle on “The Glorious Land” is reminiscent of a wartime bugler and serves as a warning for the oncoming onslaught of WWI imagery. References to the brutality of war continue to abound on “The Words that Maketh Murder,” the album’s first single. Harvey growls for her vocal performance here, producing a chant-worthy song concertgoers can look forward to. “Written on the Forehead” serves as the “must download” track of the album. Harvey interweaves delicate vocals through a U2-esque melody. Bandmates John Parish and Mick Harvey share the microphone with

Harvey to produce a haunting, bluesy feel. Haunting, too, are the lyrics, which depict a tragic scene. The second stanza offers this imagery: “People throw belongings, a lifetime’s earnings, amongst the scattered rubbish and suitcases on the sidewalk.” The album finishes on a high note with “The Colour of the The Earth.” Polly Jean, Parish and Harvey call upon many guests for the song, including JeanMarc Butty, Sammy Hurden, Greta Berlin and Lucy Roberts. Together, PJ Harvey and friends concoct a beautiful sing-along ballad to close out the album. Few albums can be enjoyed from start to finish without a lull in enjoyment for the listener. “Let England Shake” is one of those albums. Do not let the label of “concept album” deter you from experiencing Polly Jean’s latest offering. Rest assured knowing that she achieved an album that is both accessible and enjoyable.

keLsey GiVens Lantern reporter givens.64@osu.edu For those looking for Bright Eyes to move back to its roots, a combination of pop and experimental folk, their answer has come with the band’s new release “The People’s Key.” The last two albums from the band have been extraordinarily folksy and mellow, but this record goes back to the experimental sound fans heard on albums, such as “Digital Ash in a Digital Urn,” “Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground” and “Fevers and Mirrors.” The album opens with a story about time and aliens, similar to how “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning,” opened with a spoken story. “Firewall,” the song that follows, is one of the best on the album. Throughout the record, frontman Conor Oberst’s voice is stronger and more confident than previous albums. Lyrically, the album falls in line with the band’s other records, with themes about societal, personal and relationship issues.

The Dears are dense and deep musically Ryan Book Arts editor book.15@osu.edu

“The People’s key” Bright eyes

The music is at times upbeat and fast-paced, playing more into the band’s poppier side on tracks like “Jejune Stars” and “Triple Spiral.” Other times, the group is more mellow and sad in tracks such as “Beginner’s Mind” and “Ladder Song.” While most of the music on this album seems to have moved away from the folksycountry sound of albums past, there are still hints of it intertwined in the music, like in “A Machine Spiritual (In the People’s Key).” Overall this album will please both fans who have listened to the band since the beginning and those who have only picked up their last two records. It’s a culmination of everything the band has ever done, in the best possible way.

This shot of Berlin is one of many real scenes mixed into Dani Leventhal’s ‘Hearts are Trump again,’ which will play at the Wexner center as part of ‘Look at our Life now.’

Hearts from 1B

Female filmmakers adjusting to residencies at Wexner Center behavior; that’s a motivation for my artwork,” McLean said. “I was thinking about the fandom and emotional states that can develop and even larger questions outside of media of whether emotions can be artificial.” Her other film is nine minutes long and is about “rising fundamentalism and a government that cites faith to defend war actions have helped grow a desperate society,” according to wexarts.org. Leventhal advises being open-minded. “If the audience is open to experimental film, I think they’ll be engaged,” she said. “If they’re looking for movies, they’ll probably be a little put off.” Leventhal’s two videos are “Hearts Are Trump Again” and “Draft 9.” The former is a 14-minute mix of real scenes, such as her family playing cards and constructed scenes of a woman waiting for a sperm donor. Some of the footage gets up close to the viewer’s face and the angle of the camera makes it seem as though the audience is invading someone’s personal space. One scene was just a head of hair moving and a still pair of knees. “I collect images that are around me in everyday scenarios,” Leventhal said. “I also construct scenes. ‘Hearts are trump again’ means the emotions trump the intellect.” “Draft 9” is a portrayal of the line between the

living and the dead, according to wexarts.org. “I’m a sculptor. I think I handled the camera in a way that’s related to that,” Leventhal said. “I use the camera like a tool. I can get that close when I’m filming and the people that I shoot are pretty comfortable with it.” Both filmmakers tend to work alone and rarely collaborate. McLean said that she is moving past that, however, as she works on a new project that she described as a horror movie. She said she is working on it with former students of hers. Leventhal said she had to adjust when she began her residency at the Wexner Center. “I’m working with Mike Olenick and he’s an editing wonder,” she said, “a technician who’s sort of a genius, and that is helping me on this next project, with things that I couldn’t do without him.” The program begins 7 p.m. today at the Wexner Center. There will be about 100 minutes of films shown. Tickets are $5 for students. “I want people to ask questions rather than walking away saying ‘I get it’ and thinking they’re resolved now,” McLean said.

The Canadian alternative scene has never been at a higher point, with Arcade Fire having won Album of the Year on Sunday at the Grammys. The spotlight is now on The Dears, a Montreal band who released its new album “Degeneration Street” on Tuesday. The band, along with its cohorts Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene, has gathered critical acclaim for its grandiose approach to “underground” music: preferring many instruments and dense arrangements compared to the often simpler approach of American bands. The formula continues to work for The Dears on the new album. The record opens with “Omega Dog,” a track crowded with instrumental input. The thick bass from the kick drum serves as the backbone, but it’s easy for the listener to wander among the guitars, keyboards, violin and vocalist Murray Lightburn’s falsetto. The song ends with an energetic solo from guitarist Patrick Krief, but is almost tuned out by the wall of sound from the other instruments. Solos might not be hip, but the band would’ve been forgiven for getting caught up in the moment.

“Degeneration street” The Dears

The same excitement and dense instrumentation almost make “Blood” a party song, if lyrical content is ruled out. “Yesteryear” is equally upbeat. More often than not, more instruments equal a better song on this album. Light fare like “1854” just can’t live up. Lightburn’s high pitch approach to “Omega Dog” is different than his regular pitch. Critics often compare his vocals (much to Lightburn’s resentment) to Morrissey. Even if Lightburn doesn’t like it, his similarity to the British musician makes tracks like “5 Chords” and “Thrones” appealing. Lyrically, the songs don’t weave as grand a picture as Arcade Fire does, but that would be asking a lot. It would be fairer to compare The Dears to Broken Social Scene, and from that angle, The Dears are looking good.
