OSU apparel deal costing local business
OSU investigates startup after talks go awry Universities with shrinking enrollments and more competition for students are absolutely going to be looking at those kinds of sources and they’re going to want to protect it. It’s an investment.
Ohio State is investigating a startup company for copyright infringements and violation of trade secret information after a potential deal Jack Greiner between the attorney at Graydon Head, university and a law firm in Cincinnati the company’s CEO went awry. OSU is attempting to commercialize a curriculum management software system used by the College of Medicine called nSPIRE. The university has been working “for some time” on making it available to sell for third-party use, OSU spokesman Gary Lewis said in an email. The university looked to Jason Adams in June to work on marketing the product to third parties. Adams was just “one party” OSU was looking at for the deal, and Lewis did not say who or how many others were also being considered. Conversations with Adams, however, ended in October and Adams founded nSpireU LLC, an independent startup based in Dublin, Ohio, in November, hoping to launch a product similar to OSU’s nSPIRE software. Lewis was not specific about the reason that conversations ended. “Ohio State did not move forward with Mr. Adams because his proposal was not in the best interests of Ohio State,” Lewis said. Adams declined to comment on why the deal didn’t work out. “We wish them (OSU) the best of luck in their ongoing process and we’re confident in honoring

Nike deal: $46M
J. America deal*: $85M
More than a year after Ohio State announced it had agreed to enter an exclusive apparel deal with two companies, it has finalized a contract with one. While the deal is making OSU $85 million in addition to royalties, one local store owner said her business is hurting. “Prices have definitely gone up, mainly because royalties have gone up,” said Kelly Dawes, owner of College Traditions, located at 286 W. Lane Ave. “Because the money J. America has spent with OSU, they have to get that back somehow.” When she had more vendors to choose from, the prices were lower for herself and the customers, Dawes said. “Where we could normally offer a T-shirt at $12.99, we can’t really do that anymore … the lowest we can get is $14.99,” she said. The contract with J. America Sportswear Inc., based in Webberville, Mich., was released to The Lantern Thursday, more than a year after an initial records request was placed. The 10-year contract dictates OSU will receive 18 percent of net sales from licensed products and a $20 million upfront payment. However, it also has stipulations in the event of negative publicity of certain university officials. An “adverse reputational effect” on sales that could “reasonably be viewed as attributable to public awareness” of any action or perceived wrongdoing by the university president, athletic director, coaches or staff associated with the football or men’s basketball teams or any student-athlete in those programs, could result in an adjustment to the agreement terms. Former OSU President E. Gordon Gee announced his decision to retire from OSU days after controversial comments he made at a Dec. 5, 2012, OSU Athletic Council meeting came under

public scrutiny. Remarks about Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference in particular brought national attention. The adverse reputation stipulation, however, explicitly excludes poor performance by athletic teams. In case that OSU’s football or men’s basketball team is handed down a “death penalty” sanction by the NCAA — meaning the team is banned from play for at least one season — adjustments are set to be made between OSU and J. America in “good faith,” according to the contract. An example for a potential adjustment would be adjusting the minimum royalty OSU receives on net sales. The contract states that OSU is still able to enter apparel agreements with other companies, and specifically mentions Nike’s $46 million agreement, which supplies athletic gear for varsity teams. It also specifically outlines J. America’s right to produce and sell items for the Limited Brands Inc., founded

by Wexner Medical Center Board of Trustees Chairman Les Wexner, and to co-brand OSU apparel with the PINK trademark for Victoria’s Secret Stores Brand Management Inc., which began selling OSU apparel in December 2012. If the agreement is terminated or expires, the contract says OSU has the right to purchase any branded J. America inventory. If OSU chooses not to purchase “any or all” of the items, J. America is set to provide proof of destruction of the inventory in question, according to the contract. OSU must have “reasonable satisfaction” with all branded items before they are sold, and if an item cannot be brought to compliance, the contract dictates it must be pulled from the market and destroyed. The contract also stipulates that J. America will “open and maintain” a Columbus-based sales

USG campaign accused of failing to report expense KRISTEN MITCHELL AND LIZ YOUNG Editor-in-chief and Campus editor firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com An Ohio State Undergraduate Student Government campaign is being accused by other candidates of failing to report a campaign expense. According to a plaintiff brief submitted to the USG judicial panel and obtained by The Lantern, a case is being brought against presidential candidate and current vice president Josh Ahart and his runningmate Jen Tripi by candidates Celia Wright, Leah Lacure, Vytas Aukstuolis, Nicholas Macek, Mohamad Mohamad and Sean Crowe. The brief alleges the Ahart-Tripi campaign team failed to report the purchase of a domain name “clearly meant to deter an opposing campaign.” The domain name in question is “voteceliaandleah.com,” which public record from GoDaddy, a domain and website service, shows was registered to an email address belonging to the Ahart-Tripi campaign manager Tim Lanzendorfer in November. A hearing on the case is set to be brought before the judicial panel, which consists of a clerk of courts with eight judges and a chief justice, Tuesday evening. Ahart declined to provide comment to The Lantern on the case until after the hearing. Tripi and Lanzendorfer did not respond to email requests for comment Monday. Failing to report the alleged purchasing of the domain name is a violation of USG bylaws, the plaintiff brief argues. “Given that almost three months have elapsed

Student captures ‘Faces of Ohio State’ JACOB HOLLAR Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org “What’s your craziest story at Ohio State?” That question and the answers it receives serve as captions for portraits of those on and around the OSU campus on Faces of Ohio State, a Tumblr blog run by an OSU student. The photo project was started in April 2013 by Mohammad Ashique, a fourth-year in city and regional planning, as a way to combine his interests in photography and hearing people’s stories. “Ohio State is a large campus, one of the largest in the world, and we all have our story,” he said. “And I just wanted to go out and listen to all the stories and all the people.” His process is straightforward: If he sees someone “sitting around not particularly doing anything,” he’ll go up and ask if they’ll talk to him and let him take their picture. Most people, he said, are willing to participate — like Kara Spada, a third-year in international relations. Spada said she enjoyed working with Ashique, and she believes he’s onto something with Faces of Ohio State. “(Ashique) is obviously interested in people who seem a little bit different or who have something interesting to say,” Spada said. “People are doing so many strange things, and you don’t get to hear about it. “People want to know crazy stories, like that guy living in those people’s basement,” she said, referencing The Lantern’s story from September of a stranger found to be living in the basement of some OSU students’ off-campus home. That story might not have been out of place on the blog — stories there range in subject from sneaking into bars, to dates with teaching assistants, to tripping on mushrooms, to converting to Islam. That wide range of experiences shared on the blog is what Evan Yarrington, a third-year in electrical and computer engineering, said he liked about it. “When you attend such a large university or live in a city with millions of people and see so many faces in a day, it can be hard to humanize every person that you see,” Yarrington said. “Often we lose sight of the fact that every single person has his or her own unique experiences, morals and goals in life.” Spada said those kinds of stories are what people like to hear about.

Kara Spada, a third-year in international relations, poses for a black-and-white photograph later posted on the Faces of Ohio State blog. “People are really interesting. People are interested in the strange stories of other people,” Spada said. While some people might have a natural interest in other people, Ashique said not all of the work behind the blog came to him effortlessly. “I’ve always been rather shy, and I still am,” he said. Asking other students about their crazy OSU stories is part of his attempt to be “more outgoing,” Ashique said. “It’s becoming more natural now that I have some experience, but sometimes it’s still kind of tough,” he said. The future of the blog is uncertain moving forward, as Ashique is set to graduate at the end of Spring Semester. He’s unsure of his plans following graduation, he said, adding that he’s not certain he’ll stay around campus or Columbus at all. But he said the blog will live on regardless of what his own future holds. “It will be continued, whether it’s through me personally, if I stay in Columbus, or through others,” Ashique said.

Program works to help dogs back on their feet after trauma LOGAN HICKMAN Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com Meet Moki. He is your typical 3-year-old French bulldog: he loves people, he is high energy and, at times, he can be a little stubborn. At least that’s how veterinary rehab technician, Heather Storey, said she would describe her white four-legged friend. Storey works with Moki twice every week at the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center’s canine rehabilitation program using therapy techniques to build Moki’s strength after he had surgery to repair a slipped disk that was pressing against his spinal cord and had paralyzed him. Since his surgery, Moki’s owners requested that he complete rehabilitation at OSU to help him learn how to walk normally again. The canine rehabilitation program is part of the Hospital for Companion Animals at the OSU Veterinary Medical Center and helps dogs regain their strength after experiencing trauma. “Just like a person after a stroke or after a spinal cord injury would go to physical therapy, we provide that service for post-operative patients,” said Lillian Su, clinical assistant professor of small animal surgery and Moki’s doctor. “Both for neurological patients like Moki, as well as for orthopedic patients who are going through routine ACL repairs and those types of things.” One of the techniques used to help Moki regain strength in his back legs is the use of an underwater treadmill, designed just for dogs. “Essentially, it’s a tank with adjustable water levels and a treadmill on the bottom,” Su said. “We can fill the water depending on how much support we want to provide to them and it gives buoyancy to dogs who
Startup from 1A and understanding the commitment we made during the commercialization process,” Adams said of the investigation. Lewis cited legal reasons for being unable to say why OSU initialized the investigation of nSpireU, how the investigation is going or if any infringements have been found. Lewis said Monday, however, OSU has not filed a lawsuit. nSpireU is a curriculum management software that tracks educational data to give instructors feedback and supports “sudent-centered” learning, according to its website. Timothy Wright, interim vice president of technology commercialization at OSU, and Phyllis Teater, chief information officer and associate vice president of the OSU Wexner Medical Center, deferred requests for comment to Lewis.

are paralyzed — it helps them to get up and walk if they are not strong enough to support their own body weight.” In addition, the underwater treadmill helps Su and her team control the speed at which the dogs walk, in order to help strengthen specific weak areas. “The underwater treadmill helps us to strengthen their limbs and the muscles because they are working against resistance, so it’s harder to walk on water than on land,” Su said. “We can also slow them down. “Most dogs have four legs. A lot of times we consider them to have three legs with a spare,
because most dogs who have a single-limb injury will tend to walk with one leg hiked up and run around on three. If you slow them down, especially after an injury, that’s more likely to get them to put their foot down in a controlled fashion and so with the treadmill, we can control the speed that they’re going and can influence how much they’re moving their joints depending on the height of the water that we set.” Other techniques Su and her team use to help Moki include post-operative laser treatments to help reduce inflammation and pain as well as floor exercises to help improve his range of motion. These floor exercises include guiding Moki over
several sticks placed evenly apart on the floor, which encourage him to use all four of his legs when walking. “So basically, we are using his back legs to do the motions for him so hopefully he can gain some muscle memory to get him going,” Storey said. “We also do balancing (techniques) with him to again, strengthen the back end.” Veterinary assistant Marcella Kimmick is also part of Su’s canine rehab team and works with injured dogs like Moki using the underwater treadmill.
Adams said it has yet to be determined when nSpireU will launch its software and declined to comment on any potential interest from other universities. Meanwhile, “OSU is actively pursuing commercializing the software with other parties,” Lewis said. Jack Greiner, an attorney at Graydon Head, a law firm in Cincinnati, said while it isn’t common for universities to pursue lawsuits regarding copyright infringement and trade secret information, it is common for businesses. “I can’t say that I’ve seen a lot of situations with universities bringing this type of lawsuit but plenty of other business and individuals,” Greiner said. “A university has an interest in protecting its research and development and if someone takes that and uses it to their own advantage they at least have the right to pursue that.”
If OSU were to file a suit, Greiner said one of the difficulties in the case for OSU would be proving nSpireU used software that it has a copyright on. Generally, copyright law presumes that whoever created the product or idea has ownership of it, Greiner said. While the nSPIRE software was created by OSU about four years ago, Adams’ role with OSU would have been working to market the existing product to third parties, Lewis said. Columbus Business First reported in January the major issue between Adams and OSU was getting the software ready to be moved to market. Adams said the software would need to be rewritten from scratch before it was commercialized. Lewis declined to comment on specifics of any agreement between OSU and Adams because of the ongoing investigation.
Though this deal didn’t work out, that’s not stopping OSU from wanting to move forward with commercialization of other products. “Some of the university’s best intellectual property are tools and systems designed in-house for our use. We believe that many of them have value in the commercial marketplace. We’re working with a variety of partners and supporters to help take our Buckeye-born innovation to market,” Lewis said. Greiner said commercialization of intellectual property might become a growing trend for universities. “Universities with shrinking enrollments and more competition for students are absolutely going to be looking at those kinds of sources and they’re going to want to protect it. It’s an investment,” he said.

The locations for these are specified as either the Columbus office or its home office in Michigan. The contract, set to expire in December 2023, is only one of the two OSU initially announced in November 2012. The university announced a $97 million deal with J. America Sportswear and Fanatics Inc. to exclusively produce and sell university apparel. No agreement, however, has been finalized with Fanatics Inc. J.

with no documentation of the purchase and the clearly malicious nature of the purchase, meant to interfere with the operations of another team, it is evident that the failure to disclose information was not a simple clerical error but instead an act meant to mislead the judicial panel and obstruct an opposing campaign,” the brief says. If found guilty of the alleged bylaw breach, Ahart and Tripi would be taken off the ballot, however the brief states that punitive action shouldn’t be taken against the nearly 40 General Assembly candidates running on the Ahart-Tripi slate. USG campaigning is set to begin Feb. 19 with voting between March 3 and 5. The registered campaigns set to appear on the ballot are: Ahart and Tripi; Wright and Lacure; Aukstuolis and Macek; Mohamad and Crowe; Andrew Warnecke and Logan Recker; and Ryan Hedrick and Nicole Spaetzel. The Warnecke-Recker and Hedrick-Spaetzel campaigns were not listed on the plaintiff brief. Though Wright, a third-year in public health and USG’s senior internal affairs director, declined to comment on the specifics of the case because the hearing hadn’t yet happened, she said the website purchase wasn’t discovered until recently. “We didn’t discover it until we tried to make our own website. We bought the domain in I think late January, and it was then we discovered that this domain had been taken,” Wright said. “We weren’t sure how to handle it.” She said some of the other campaigns became aware of the issue as well, and the three campaigns decided to move forward together with the case. “I think all candidates in this election are interested in pursuing an ethical, clean campaign,” she said. “It was in that interest that it was decided to pursue an investigation.”
Dogs from 2A “It’s very fun,” Kimmick said. “It’s very neat to see them go from not walking to walking — it’s my dream job.” With help from rehabilitation techniques like the underwater treadmill, Moki’s owners think he can walk much more comfortably. “His owners feel like they’ve seen a really huge improvement in the last two months,” Su said. “When he first got to us, he was able to stand a little bit on his own but him standing at the very beginning was essentially him shifting all of his weight to his front legs and then using his spinal muscles to hike up his back end.” Today, Moki’s overall comfort and posture has improved, Su said. “When he’s standing, he’s more likely to stand with his weight more evenly distributed between his front and his hind legs,” Su said. Despite his improvement, Su said Moki still has ways he can improve.
the role Fanatics was originally set to play, and in January, OSU spokesman Gary Lewis said apparel company LIDS Sports Group, based in Indianapolis, took over online apparel in September and the stadium and store apparel in July. “The university is exploring options in regard to merchandising operations, but Lids has been serving in that capacity since September,” Lewis said in an email Thursday. “No longer-term contract has been signed at this point, but it is anticipated that a longterm contract will be signed with an operator in the near future.” The J. America deal accounts for nearly two-thirds of OSU’s trademark licensing revenue, and Dawes said the cost is being passed down. “Ultimately, the consumer is going to end up spending more,” she said.
While she wouldn’t comment on whether she thought in this case the punishment of disqualification would fit the violation, Wright said “we were all aware of what the punishment would be when we decided to file this brief.” She added, though, it was important to her to know the rest of the General Assembly slate wouldn’t be disqualified if Ahart and Tripi were found to have violated USG bylaws. Mohamad, a third-year in chemical engineering and engineering physics who does not officially hold a position in USG this year, also declined to comment on the specifics of the case, but emailed The Lantern a witness statement he filed. “I’m running for president of USG, so yes, these other campaigns are my competition but they are also undergraduate students … anything that affects them, affects me as an aspiring representative of the undergraduate student body,” the statement read. “If I wasn’t running, I’d want to see the candidates who were doing work that presents benefits to the student body before they even get into office. I wouldn’t want to see candidates involve themselves in selfish endeavors and I would expect candidates to run with integrity. I wouldn’t want to see a candidate violate the bylaws and succeed in sabotaging the campaign of another candidate.” Aukstuolis, a third-year in public affairs who is not currently actively involved with USG, declined to comment on case specifics as well, but said the issue was brought up to him “very recently.” Aukstuolis said he thinks the potential disqualification sentence is fitting of the bylaw violation because he believes student government would have made it fair if it wasn’t already. Wright said the decision is expected to be released within a week after the Tuesday hearing.
“My expectation is that he will continue to see us twice a week for the next four to eight weeks. The expectation with dogs with spinal cord injuries like Moki is that they get back to being a functional pet, but they may not get back to 100 percent normal because spinal cord injuries and nerve injuries are never predictable with their recovery pace,” Su said. Still, Su said the chance to help dogs like Moki lead almost normal lives following trauma is gratifying. “It’s really rewarding to be able to relieve pain for these patients, to improve their (post-operation) recovery,” she said. “It’s a fun area to be a part of.”

Alexander Botwin, also known as Paper Diamond, is set to perform with Branchez and LOUDPVCK at the Newport Feb. 19 with doors set to open at 8 p.m.
Andrew Zistler Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Electronic dance music producers are set to bring spacey synthesizers, R&B melodies and throbbing beats into Columbus. Branchez, known formally as Samuel Kopelman, LOUDPVCK, a duo comprised of Kenny Beats and Ryan Marks and Paper Diamond, the project of Alexander Botwin, are slated to come to the Newport Musical Hall Wednesday as part of their Cold Crush Tour, with doors set to open at 8 p.m. Botwin said he plans to turn up the heat, challenge the musical status quo and thaw snowed-in audiences across the states. The Colorado-based electronic music producer has been playing music since he was young. He attended Middle Tennessee State University for music production until he dropped out in 2006 to pursue a career in performing and recording. With just one year left before getting his degree, Botwin said he believed he already had all the tools he needed to create innovative new music. “I started playing the violin when I was 4 and started to record my own music when I was 12,” Botwin said. “I’ve pretty much worked on my own projects. When I was in school, I would read whole books at once and didn’t wait for the teacher to assign reading.” Botwin said he plans to continue creating music, but doesn’t want to get tied down to one genre. He said he wants to create music that people need to hear, not what they want to hear. “I’m going in so many different directions right now, working with different singers, rappers, beat stuff, electronic stuff, I don’t want to put any limitations on what I might make within a genre,” Botwin said. “I’m going to continue to grow and change as a musician and release what I think people need to hear and be exposed to. I want to be a force of change, telling people what’s dope. They may not know that it’s dope yet, but it will be.” Kopelman grew up with music as well. “It’s always what I’ve wanted to do, I haven’t wanted anything else since I was 13 years old,” Kopelman said. “I came from a musical family. I grew up around music and started making beats on the program GarageBand in school, then in Ableton and Logic (Pro).” Although he is known for his contributions to trap music, a subgenre of EDM, Kopelman said he doesn’t like to stick to any particular sound. “I always start with house and disco, I’m a lover of all dance music,” Kopelman said. “I don’t really sit at home listening to trap music.” Kopelman, who said he is a fan of his tourmates’ music, related how strange it is to be working alongside the musicians who

inspired him in the first place. “It’s a trip to hang out with your idols,” Kopelman said. “Just to be making a living off of this, just to be moving out because of money from music is fantastic. The mutual respect is very welcoming, and I feel like I’m a part of a very small community. I feel like everyone is competitive, but they’re also trying to help each other out. It’s been a beautiful year, a year of constant wows. Even playing on stage for a large crowd is still kinda freaky, and I hope that never goes away.” Phill Price, a second-year in political science, said he’s looking forward to seeing Paper Diamond for the second time. “I saw him play a set with only his iPad, he’s one of the only people I know of that do that,” Price said. “I heard about him earlier this summer. He gets down with trap, but then he also plays electro funk, similar to (EDM musician) Pretty Lights sometimes. He’s really diverse, which is more than you can say for most. Most producers stick to a genre and play what people want to hear. He doesn’t do that, he plays his own ideas. He keeps it real.” Newport Music Hall is located at 1722 N. High St. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 on the day of the show.

‘One size fits all’ tugs at body image of young girls, women
Taylor Cameron Lantern reporter email@example.com Since when did it become OK for clothes to be produced solely in certain sizes? You might not be able to afford the most soughtafter items because price has often been the deciding factor on exclusivity in the material world, but to not be included because of your size? When did it become conventional for retailers to drive their marketing campaigns to just fit a small audience? With popular brands such as Brandy Melville, American Apparel and Victoria’s Secret carrying one size fits all sizes, there is no question in the female mind that the ideology they should such a size has become a standard theory. The message they are sending to consumers is, “Hey, if you can’t fit into our clothing, don’t even bother shopping here,” — and their consumers are mainly young girls. So ladies listen up — this philosophy is anything but normal. Brandy Melville, an Italian brand, received fame for its Los Angeles style and “one size fits most” merchandise. The brand has become popular among many female youths, which sparks the question: With such a diverse consumer population, how do they expect one size to fit all? The Los Angeles Times reported the
“average U.S. woman, who’s 162.9 pounds and wears a size 14, is treated like an anomaly by apparel brands and retailers.” So Brandy Melville, you are telling me that your “one size fits most” ideal can fit a women wearing a size zero and a woman wearing a size 14. No, one size does not fit “most.” I myself have been in a Brandy Melville store and failed to find an article of clothing that fit comfortably and was flattering — and I’m a size 4 . Feeling like an “anomaly” was an understatement. This size leaves teenage girls with a sense of body dissatisfaction. If they were trying to thinspire teenage girls to fit into a certain mold when they implemented this bogus fad, congratulations because they have succeeded at just that. The National Eating Disorder Association found that about 20 million women suffer from some sort of eating disorder in their lifetime. Eating disorders are no longer just anorexia and bulimia but extreme dieting with a “drive for thinness.” Thirty-five to 57 percent of adolescent girls engage in a form of crash dieting. While one-size clothing is likely not the leading cause to this number, I have to say that clothing companies have contributed to the alarmingly high statistic.
Netflix released Season 2 of its highly-acclaimed political thriller “House of Cards” in full on Valentine’s Day. With much anticipation built into this upcoming season, the metaphorical “house of cards” came crashing down slowly around everyone, except for Frank Underwood, of course. Frank, played by the phenomenal Kevin Spacey, had finally been tapped to become the nation’s vice president at the end of last season. Well, this season picked up right where it left off, with Frank and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), running on a midnight jog. What separates this series from other great shows is the propensity for the main character to routinely break the fourth wall, helping us as viewers to feel a strong, real connection to someone whom we know we are supposed to loathe and despise at all turns. In the first episode of Season 2, titled “Chapter 14,” with all episodes following this chronological label, Frank takes his time to dive into his euphorically drawn out soliloquies, while always saying something substantial. When he asks the viewer, “Did you think I forgot about you?” I knew this season would be an emotional roller coaster much like the last. What drives Frank’s motives is not the belief that he as a politician has a duty to the American people, but that he only has a duty to himself and whatever he sees as beneficial toward his own cause. If you haven’t picked up on it before, Frank is driven, obsessed really, with the idea of becoming the president of the United States. Late in Season 2, Frank writes a letter to the then-president explaining the motive for his actions. While it is hard to find a time when Frank is being honest with himself and his motives, he does take the time in his letter to say the underlying theme of the show: He says he would by lying to the president if every time he walked in his office, he wouldn’t find himself imagining what it would be like to be the leader of the greatest country. This power-driven man’s ego continues to be fed throughout the season, but those accomplishments are only a mere appetizer to what he truly desires. The real meal Frank desires stares at him every time he walks into the president’s office: the desk and chair that when shown, seem larger than life. He feels it deep inside him when he gets near it — the never-ending desire to be the one person in the world who has more power and control over everything, but how he gets there is where the story lies, no pun ever being more meaningful. Frank knows that in order to work his way into the chair of the presidency, he must do what he does best: make the stable house of cards, consisting of everyone who stands in his way, fall down, card by card. After speaking to Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney), the president’s right-hand man and no stranger to the political game himself, Frank acknowledges “the gift of a good liar is making people think you lack a talent in lying.” But with all the lying surrounding and holding up Frank’s political career, viewers begin to question if he has reached the point where every lie he tells actually feels like the truth to him. Blurring the lines between the truth and lies is a tight rope to dance, but to this point, Frank hasn’t faltered one bit and balances both of these with the prowess of a savvy, cunning politician. This leads to how Frank will eventually find his way to the seat he covets most — through political backdooring and handshakes made to be broken. How he meticulously finds a way to connect and turn all the political slander is unfathomable, but at the same time makes viewers question the integrity of our political system. Yes, this is a fictional story about a politician’s obsession with becoming president, but when we have become accustomed as a society to think all politicians are crooked — willing to do anything to maintain their stature and act as puppets for those who actually control their votes — you begin to see similarities between this world and Frank’s world. Where we see collusion and political fixtures not suitable for the highest office in the land, Frank sees manipulation pouring from his body, willing to do anything and everything to get his way. The art of deception is just that: making those who surround you not know what you are actually doing to them until it is too late. Although some people see through Frank’s ruse, it often leads to them succumbing to his own will, whether they like it or not. Already renewed for a third season, Netflix has positioned itself to back a strong show with great acting, directing, writing and most of all — storytelling. There is a reason why it is called binge–watching. If you create a series great enough that people can’t turn it off, then you have done something right. Frank is that character whose hubris is detectable as soon as you hit play. It is just too hard to find a way to turn it off.

Keep wallet happy by investing in accessories BREANNA SOROKA For The Lantern email@example.com If you’re like me — a college student with a horrible, compulsive shopping problem — you’re probably dreaming of the day when you can update your wardrobe for spring. This season, though, I’m challenging myself to save by stocking up on new accessories instead of an entire closet full of things I’ll probably never wear. Read on to see how these outfit add-ons can freshen up your look and keep your wallet happy.
1970s. This is also a great DIY project to do on your own — just glue a barrette to the back of a craft store flower. So before you empty your bank account on just a few new pieces for your closet, try out some new accessories and see if that satisfies the shopping compulsion. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up with a new signature accent piece that adds a little bit of personality to every outfit you wear.
Frame it I have a penchant for faux eyewear — it covers up any dark circles and adds an effortlessly cool look to whatever outfit I’m wearing. Even if you have contacts, you can just throw a pair of plastic frames on and call it a day. Evoke your inner Buddy Holly with classic black wayfarer frames, or switch it up with a marbled cat-eye style.

Buckle up Belts are an easy way to add a little bit of personality to your ensemble. Whether you want to go in a classic or funky direction, you can just loop one of these guys through your jeans and call it a day. Tuck a plain white V-neck T-shirt into dark wash jeans and complete the outfit with a baby pink belt, or show off your figure with a wide cinching belt over your favorite maxi dress. With such a variety to choose from, it’s virtually impossible to not find a belt you adore. Wrap around As the weather warms up a bit, you can make the switch from heavy knit scarves to more lightweight ones, giving your outfits a brand new feel and keeping them from being weighed down. Wrapping one around your neck can immediately change the vibe of your ensemble, so you can find one to suit your style. Tie on a polka dot scarf for a pinup vibe, or go for an edgier look with one covered in skulls. If it’s suddenly too warm to wear any, don’t fret — just knot one onto your favorite handbag and call it a day. Floral headgear Though there are plenty of headbands and hairclips out there, spring is the perfect time to invest in some faux flowers for your hair. Whether you want to pin one large flower to a braid or drape on a head wrap covered in faux buds, you can instantly turn your entire outfit into an extremely fashionable throwback to the

For women who don’t like their hair style or simply want to add some spice to their look, accessories for hair are plentiful and cheap and can be found at numerous outlets.
Some of the most desirable fashion trends are within the stores where they tell girls they should fit a certain size. The media is constantly criticized for the pressure they put on adolescents to look a certain way with their songs and images. However, retailers have sunk to a new low creating physical and material pressure girls cannot avoid. Without even fair warning, women are subject to judgment when they walk into these stores. There should be a disclaimer outside the building that says “only come in if you want to be ridiculed.” One brand even took this desired skinny fad too far. Urban Outfitters produced a shirt with the words “Eat Less” printed across the front. I mean come on, what were they even going for when they produced that shirt? Actress Sophia Bush took a stand against this ghastly T-shirt by declaring war on the popular clothing chain. “You should issue a public apology, and make a hefty donation to a women’s organization that supports those stricken with eating disorders. I am sickened that anyone, on any board, in your gigantic company would have voted ‘yes’ on such a thing, let alone enough of you to manufacture an item with such a hurtful message. It’s like handing a suicidal person a loaded gun. You should know better,” she said in a letter to the company. Preach, Sophia Bush, because you are spot on. “One size fits all,” when printed on tags, is not a size. It’s an attempt to drive a brand’s consumerism to a certain population. While these brands didn’t come out and claim exclusivity like Abercrombie & Fitch Co. CEO Mike Jeffries, their marketing screams loud and clear they have an intended target in mind. So ladies, if you find yourself not fitting into the “most” or “all” category, don’t sweat it because very few women meet that. Be who you are and wear your size loud and proud because unlike what these stores might portray, it is welcomed everywhere.

XXII Olympic Winter Games Medal count As of Monday evening.
A group of former Ohio State Buckeyes are set to showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts with dreams of getting selected in the 2014 Draft. A total of six Buckeyes — senior running back Carlos Hyde, senior wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown, a pair of redshirt-senior offensive linemen, center Corey Linsley and left tackle Jack Mewhort, junior linebacker Ryan Shazier and redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby — are scheduled to compete in the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis from Saturday through Feb. 25, according to a press release. OSU is tied with Wisconsin for the highest number of players invited to the combine from the Big Ten. Alabama has the most of any school with 12 players in attendance. The 2013 team — which finished 12-2 after back-to-back losses to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game Dec. 7 and then to Clemson in the Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 — had notable members who did not receive an invitation to the combine include redshirt-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton, senior safety Christian Bryant, senior offensive lineman

Senior running back Carlos Hyde catches a touchdown pass during the Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35. Andrew Norwell and redshirt-senior offensive lineman Marcus Hall. Mewhort, named first-team All-American by ESPN.com and second-team All-American by Walter Camp, “Sports Illustrated” and the Football Writers Association of America in 2013, was a big part of an offensive line that paved the way for the third-most rushing touchdowns in school history (45). OSU also ranked fifth in the country with 308.6 yards per game on the ground in 2013. Mewhort said he is looking forward to the opportunity to
represent the Scarlet and Gray at the combine this weekend. “Obviously it’s a huge honor, big responsibility,” Mewhort said in an interview with The Lantern Monday. “You’re wearing that Block ‘O’ and people know you’re representing The Ohio State University. It’s my responsibility to go out there and show what the university is made of show that you are proud you get to compete and show that we’re the best of the best, which we are. It’s kind of on our shoulders to do that this year.” Brown either led or was tied for
the most number of receptions on the team during each of his last three seasons in Columbus and was just the second OSU wideout to have consecutive seasons with at least 60 catches, the other being David Boston from 1997-98. His 63 receptions this past season are the fifth-most in school history. According to the release, Hyde’s 6.1 yards per carry average during his career is the best of any OSU running back in school history, along with his 7.3 yards per carry average in 2013. His 10.2 yards per carry average in the Buckeyes’ 60-35 win against Illinois Nov. 16 is also a school record. Even after serving a three-game suspension for his involvement in an incident at a Columbus bar in July, Hyde still amassed a teamleading 1,521 yards this past season. After OSU lost the Discover Orange Bowl to Clemson, 40-35, Hyde addressed his career and mentioned how he looking forward to what’s next. “I almost finished pretty much like I finished my senior year in high school, close to 1,600 yards and like 18 touchdowns. So I think I had a pretty good career my last year here,” Hyde said Jan. 3. “I’m looking forward to the next step in my life.” Known as “the apex” to coach

After coming close each of the previous three seasons, the members of the Ohio State men’s tennis team can finally call themselves indoor champions. Playing in their fourth match against a ranked opponent in as many days, the No. 5 Buckeyes defeated No. 3 USC 4-1 Monday afternoon to claim the ITA Men’s Team Indoor Championship in Houston. Starting the match off strong for the Buckeyes, the No. 2-ranked duo of senior Peter Kobelt and redshirtjunior Kevin Metka defeated senior Ray Sarmiento and junior Yannick Hanfmann, 6-4. Redshirt-sophomore Chris Diaz and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach then defeated junior Eric Johnson and sophomore Max de Vroome 6-4 to capture the doubles point for the Buckeyes. Diaz and Steinbach had not won a doubles match the whole weekend, but came up big when it mattered most. “We were able to set the tone early on and Steinbach and Diaz fought back with five straight points in doubles to get it started,” OSU coach Ty Tucker said after the win, according to a press release. “We rode Metka and Kobelt
hard at No. 1 all weekend and they were able to win all of their matches for us.” Kobelt called earning the doubles point “huge.” “We didn’t get the first point against Virginia and we are a much better team when we win in doubles. I know I had to play at my best for us to win vs. USC,” Kobelt said, according to the release. “This trophy we are bringing back is for all the former members that have played at Ohio State. This is a great accomplishment.” Redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan and Kobelt set the pace in singles as both took on higher-ranked opponents, but did not yield. Callahan was off first after beating No. 47-ranked junior Johnny Wang 6-3, 6-4. Kobelt, ranked No. 23, followed suit defeating No. 7 Sarmiento by the same mark. Diaz lost to No. 16 Hanfmann 6-5 (7-4), 6-3 to give the Trojans one point, but Steinbach squashed any hope of a comeback by beating freshman Connor Farren 6-5 (7-4), 6-4 to clinch the championship for the Buckeyes. “To help the team clinch the match is an unbelievable feeling,” Steinbach said, according to the release. “I was up a set and playing good tennis then I realized after Peter won, I had a chance to serve for the title. I was a little nervous. The

OSU won, 4-1. deciding point came down to a volley and I was aggressive at the net and was able to place a good shot for the clinching point.” It is the first indoor national title for the Buckeyes in program history, who had to defeat some of the nation’s best on the way. OSU took down No. 12 Florida, No. 10 Texas and No. 1 Virginia in consecutive days to set up its championship tilt with the Trojans (7-1). “When you beat two teams backto-back that have been dominating
college tennis the last five years, it’s a great accomplishment,” Tucker said in a released statement. “Everyone is playing for the team and the only thing that matters to these guys is that Ohio State wins.” At 13-0, this is the best start in program history, and with already one national championship in hand, expectations are likely to be sky high for the remainder of the season. The Buckeyes are next scheduled to play Notre Dame at South Bend, Ind. Saturday. First serve is set for noon.
Buckeye pistol team finds success shooting ‘in relative obscurity’ NICK DEIBEL Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Within view of Ohio Stadium and the Schottenstein Center, a reigning individual national champion, a Hall of Fame coach, and an undefeated team are all preparing to compete at nationals for the second consecutive year. The Ohio State pistol team set a school-record overall team score at the Midwest Collegiate Pistol Sectionals, held Jan. to 31 Feb. 1, to remain undefeated this season. Now, OSU is in its final weeks of practice before the 2014 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships March 8-13. In 15 years as the head coach, James Sweeney has led the pistol team to five national titles and coached seven student-athletes to 23 NRA collegiate individual championships, including senior Joe Totts, the 2013 National Individual Champion in the standard pistol event. Gene Smith, athletic director and university vice president, said Sweeney is a great teacher and an icon he is proud to have in his athletic department. “Jim is awesome. Jim has been in it for so long and he’s just a great human being,” Smith said. “He does it the right way, he understands what our goals are — to help young people get their degrees.” Sweeney, who was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame last year, said he is confident this year’s team can add to his already long list of champions. “All we have to do is shoot our average and we’ll at least be on the podium, if not win it,” Sweeney said. Despite the program’s winning past, some members of the team said when their classmates hear they are on the pistol team, usually involves elicited reactions like, “That’s a real thing?” But Sweeney said the team is aware it is one of the least recognized sports at OSU and that it is comfortable that way. “We shoot in relative obscurity because we love the sport and we’re very fond of each other,” Sweeney said. “We’re a nice tight-knit team and shooting in obscurity doesn’t bother us. I’m proud of my team, that they don’t need the adulation of 100,000 people to try their best.” Smith said even though the athletic department makes sure it does

Senior Joe Totts aims his pistol during a team practice Feb. 12 in Converse Hall at the Lt. Hugh W. Wylie Range. everything it can to make every sport they sponsor successful, it is up to the program to generate interest in the sport. “We do not have a marketing program that is designed to do that. We let the people who are interested in finding and following that sport follow it,” Smith said. “Pistol is a unique sport and as far as fan attendance in Converse Hall, it is very difficult to have fans in that environment, so we don’t promote it that way.” As he prepares to defend his title in standard pistol, Totts said he is pleased with where he and the team stand right now in terms of OSU athletics. “I’m not real sure where exactly we fit in. We’re not well-known, that’s for sure,” Totts said. “I’m happy to be off in the corner doing my own thing. It’s unfortunate we’re not well recognized, but it’s understandable because if you’ve ever watched us shoot, it’s not exciting to watch.”
Regardless of how obscure or unexciting the pistol team might be, the program’s five team championships as a team count toward OSU’s total number of team championships. Also, because it is a varsity sport, every time a pistol team member wins a national championship, Smith gets an extra week of base pay, more than $18,000. Smith said even though they are not in the NCAA, the pistol team’s status as a varsity sport makes it equal to every other sport at OSU. “They are a varsity sport for us. They compete in their own conference, they just don’t have a NCAA Championship,” Smith said. “They’re not a club sport. They have scholarships, they actually go out and recruit talent.” Sweeney said the support of the athletic department is a major influence on the program’s success, making it a mutually beneficial relationship. “OSU gives us almost unlimited resources — so we have the guns, the bullets, the uniforms, the travel. The resources are there,” Sweeney said. Junior Clay Beckholt said the Lt. Hugh W. Wylie Range in Converse Hall and the equipment provided by OSU gives the team an upper hand against its competition. “I think having such a great facility at our disposal and being able to shoot a hundred rounds a day definitely helps. Not a lot of people can say that,” Beckholt said. OSU is the only non-military school in the country to offer scholarships for shooters, an advantage assistant coach Donna Knisley said allows her and Sweeney to get some of the best junior shooters to come to OSU. Knisley said the majority of the team’s opponents are military academies that attract a large number of talented shooters. “We don’t have as many walk-ons as we used to because we’ve been able to recruit ones that have prior shooting experience,” Knisley said. “In the military academies, they are required to do some sort of physical education or recreation, so a lot of them choose to shoot.” Totts said his only concern right now is bringing home another championship. “I constantly try to improve. A perfect score has never been shot so you strive towards that,” Totts said. “I know how to shoot, so I just have to not think about shooting and go do it.”

sports Former Buckeye goalie Olson thriving with Sioux City Musketeers BRETT AMADON Lantern reporter email@example.com The Ohio State University is not for everybody. Last November, goalkeeper Collin Olson made news after he decided to leave OSU for the United States Hockey League. Over the last few months, he’s been in headlines again — only this time, it’s for what he’s been doing on the ice. Olson, a sixth-round draft pick in the 2012 NHL Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes, was a star recruit who came to OSU during the 2012-2013 campaign after playing in the USHL with the U.S. National Team Development Program for two seasons. After only playing in nine contests (seven starts) during his freshman year because then-senior All-American goalkeeper Brady Hjelle was a strong player, Olson expected to see an increase in playing time during his sophomore campaign. Yet after struggling in the season opener against Miami (Ohio) Oct. 11 and allowing two goals on three shots against Robert Morris in his second start Oct. 25, the Apple Valley, Minn., native lost his playing time to freshman Matt Tomkins and subsequently decided to leave the school. “Collin feels he hasn’t played the number of games he’s needed over the last few years,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said in a November press release. “He has decided leaving our program to find somewhere he will play more games will be best for his future. He is a good kid and a good student and we wish him nothing but the best.” Olson, who finished his career at OSU with a 2-4-1 record, 3.70 goals against average and an .885 save percentage, did not want to talk about why he left, simply saying that the decision he made was for the best.
Combine from 6A Urban Meyer and his teammates, Linsley earned All-Big Ten Conference honors each of the past two seasons, in which he started every game and helped the Buckeyes to a 24-2 record over that span. Despite being suspended for OSU’s first game this past season against Buffalo because of his involvement in an incident at a Bloomington, Ind., bar in July, Roby started 36 of 37 games in which he played at OSU. He scored five touchdowns on defense and special teams in his career and led the country in passes defended with 19 in 2012. Roby had his ups and downs in 2013 and

“It was what was right for me in the situation,” Olson said in a Feb. 10 phone interview. “I don’t want to get into specific reasons why. It was just going to work out better for me to come back (to the USHL) and find a different path.” Olson was originally a futures pick for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders in 2010, who held onto his rights when he went to play for USA and kept him on their college-protected list when he came to Columbus. However, wanting to make room for their other young goaltenders, the Riders traded him to the Sioux City Musketeers for three draft picks in early November. Olson, however, returned to the U.S. National Team Development program until late December because of an NCAA rule that prevented him from playing in any outside activities because he was still enrolled at OSU. “Since I finished out first semester, I was not allowed to play in any outside activities because technically I was still on the team,” Olson said. “The only way around that was unless it was Olympic-sponsored, which the U.S. team I played at before I went to Ohio State was, so I was able to play there without being penalized.” Olson ended up playing in three games for the U.S. National Junior Team and the decision paid dividends as he shined between the pipes, posting a shutout in his first game against the Green Bay Gamblers Nov. 16. Still, when Olson finally made it up to Sioux City, Iowa, to play in the USHL for the Musketeers he found himself in a backup role once again, this time sitting behind Kyle Hayton, one of the USHL’s top netminders. But Olson said the Musketeers are in good shape because they now have two goalies who can help out in different situations. “Me and Kyle play different styles,” Olson said. “He is a lot smaller than I am, so he tends to rely on a lot of different things, but it’s great because now we have something for every situation.” However, after Hayton was forced to sit out because
was the subject of some criticism as a result of on-field struggles. He was beaten by receivers for multiple touchdown passes in games against California Sept. 14 and Wisconsin Sept. 28, and Roby said after the Buckeyes’ 63-14 win against Penn State Oct. 26, criticism just comes with being a cornerback. “Throughout the season you’re going to have ups and downs. Nobody’s going to be perfect, especially at my position,” Roby said. “Just because you make a few bad plays here and there doesn’t mean that all of a sudden you can’t be this or that.” A first-team All-American in 2013, Shazier

Former OSU goalkeeper Collin Olson (39) makes a save during a game against Miami (Ohio) Oct. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 6-2. Olson left the program to play for the USHL. of a concussion he suffered New Year’s Eve, Olson got his chance to start and ran with it. Taking home USHL Goaltender of the Week honors for his play from Dec. 30 to Jan. 5, Olson recorded his first shutout with the Musketeers in a game against the Muskegon Lumberjacks Jan. 3 and followed it up by stopping 31 shots the next night in a 4-2 win over the same Muskegon squad. Overall, Olson is 5-2-0 with Sioux City, posting a goals allowed average of 1.72 and save percentage of .939, something he said is because of the atmosphere that has surrounded him in the Sioux City organization. “It’s been great. I’ve had a lot of fun,” Olson said. “It’s
nice to stay at the rink a long time and work … it’s been nice to come to Sioux City which has some of the best facilities in the USHL … I feel very lucky to play here.” Still, just because things did not work out with the Buckeyes, that doesn’t mean Olson’s collegiate career is finished. Olson said he plans to go back to college during the 2015-16 campaign and that he is just trying to find the right fit. “Because of NCAA rules, I have to sit out next year so I will come back to the USHL,” Olson said. “I’m talking to a few schools … I’m definitely going to go back to school, I just haven’t decided where yet.”
led OSU in tackles in both 2012 and 2013 and finished 15th in program history with 306 total tackles. He also had 15 games with at least 10 tackles. “Playing in the NFL is something that I have been dreaming about since my days in pee-wee football,” Shazier said in an OSU press release Jan. 4 when he announced his decision to forgo his senior season. “I just feel that now is the perfect time for me.” Workouts at the combine at Lucas Oil Stadium are set to be televised on NFL Network, with tight ends, offensive linemen and special teams players kicking things off Feb. 22. Quarterbacks,
running backs and wide receivers are set to compete Feb. 23, defensive linemen and linebackers are scheduled to work out on Feb. 24, and defensive backs are slated to finish the combine off the following day. A record 85 underclassmen are among 335 players invited to the scouting combine, according to CBSSports.com. OSU’s Pro Day is set for March 7 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center in Columbus. The 2014 edition of the Buckeyes are scheduled to open their 2014 campaign Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
