OSU redshirt-junior wrestler Logan Stieber won his third national title March 22 against Virginia Tech’s Devin Carter, 10-1.

JAMES GREGA JR. Lantern reporter For most people, three national championships might be a lifetime’s worth of achievements. But Ohio State redshirt-junior wrestler Logan Stieber doesn’t have plans to stop there: he has an opportunity to supercede it. Stieber collected his third consecutive individual national title Saturday when he defeated Virginia Tech’s Devin Carter, 10-1, and earned the most national titles in OSU wrestling history. He also has three Big Ten crowns to go along with those three national titles. The 141-pounder has been successful not only in his time at OSU, but throughout his entire wrestling career, coach Tom Ryan said Monday. “I knew as a sophomore (in high school) this could happen,” Ryan said of Stieber’s continued success. “I saw something that I had never seen

before. His awareness, his timing … he is like a ninja.” Stieber won his first two national titles in the 133-pound class before adding weight in the offseason to compete at a higher class, something he said was out of necessity. “I was getting too big for 133,” Stieber said. “I won’t say it affected my performance, but it affected my body. It worked well for the team, so it was an easy choice.” His victory against Carter for the national title brought benefits to others at OSU as well: it meant an extra payday for OSU athletic director and Vice President Gene Smith, who is set to be rewarded an additional week’s worth of pay of his base salary of $940,484, which works out to be more than $18,000, based on the win. The bonus in Smith’s contract is described as “one week base salary for each NCAA Championship achieved by an individual sport participant,” and applies to wrestling, cross-country, track, diving, swimming, fencing, golf, gymnastics,

LGBTQ students debate pros, cons of publicly posting gender identity MUYAO SHEN Lantern reporter The biggest worry some Ohio State students have over what potential employers will find on their Facebook pages isn’t necessarily about foul language or underage drinking, but about something core to their identity: their sexual orientation. Others, though, said being upfront about that orientation can be beneficial in the long run. In February, Facebook added more than 50 gender options, including “transgender,” “cisgender” and “intersex.”While many applaud the social media giant for its step, some at OSU have concerns about employers seeing the changes on applicants’ Facebook profiles. Ashton Kimbler, a second-year in German who recognizes himself as pansexual – attracted to all genders – said he likes Facebook’s new options but is still cautious when he puts information online. “Many people, like myself, keep those sections hidden on our profile if we are friends with family or friends who do not know our sexual or gender identities,” Kimbler said. Amy Thaci, director of Engineering Career Services in the OSU College of Engineering, said career services is happy to help all students, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, with employment questions. “We are an extremely supportive office of any student who is dealing with these issues,” Thaci said in an email. “Since these issues are becoming more ‘front and center,’ we want to make sure we are posed to provide the best resources and information available.” Thaci said there is progress to be made with eliminating discrimination in Ohio. “Ohio is considered a weak state due to the state protections,” Thaci said. “Only state employees are a protected class so students need to be aware of this.” According to the Ohio Department of Administrative Services website, discrimination against people based on sex or sexual orientation is prohibited, but complaints of discrimination have to include a state of Ohio employee or someone claiming discrimination against a state agency. Jenna Haaser, a fourth-year in speech and hearing sciences and psychology who works with the Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival, an LGBTQ rights festival held in the summer, said in her experience, some employers won’t hire people because of their sexual orientation.

synchronized swimming, tennis and co-ed sports in rifle and pistol. Although the collegiate season is over, Stieber is taking just two days off as he said he will begin to prepare for the U.S. Open Wednesday. The U.S. Open is set to take place in Las Vegas in April. Following the U.S. Open, Stieber plans to set his sights on Times Square to compete in the “Beat the Streets” wresting tournament May 7. Stieber said he then plans to compete in the World Team Trials in Madison, Wis., at the end of May. Stieber has made it known that the Olympics are a goal of his, as the bio on his personal Twitter account, @_LogieBear_, reads “3x National Champ for tOSU.. now trying to make the olympics!” That’s an achievement he said he believes is realistic. “2016 is the goal, and 2020 is not ruled out yet,” Stieber said. Heading into next season, Stieber has a chance to become just the fourth wrestler in NCAA history

Ohio State students did not play their typical role in selecting this year’s commencement speaker, and the university remains silent about who did. “Because of time constraints and leadership changes during the past year, the decision was made to use a more streamlined approach to speaker selection for Spring 2014 Commencement,” Amy Murray, university spokeswoman, said in an email. “For subsequent years, the Office of Academic Affairs is designing a speaker-selection process that includes faculty, staff and students.” Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC political talk show “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” was announced as the commencement speaker Friday. In the past, there was a committee of students, faculty and staff from several departments, including Undergraduate Student Government and faculty governance members. Murray said for future speakers, a committee is slated to be in place and should be appointed by the end of the semester for recommendations for the 2014-15 academic year. The leadership changes Murray mentioned that led to the decision to not have a committee this year included former President E. Gordon Gee’s retirement from OSU July 1, days after remarks he made in December 2012 about Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference in particular brought national attention. Dr. Michael Drake, chancellor at University of California Irvine, is slated to take over as the new university president, effective June 30. Murray did not comment on who specifically made the decision for commencement speaker this year, but said Matthews’ background makes him a good choice. “As one of the nation’s most experienced political journalists, Matthews has a remarkable depth of experience. As Spring Commencement speaker, he will offer a unique perspective on our country’s history and future,” Murray said.

Pelotonia’s Team Buckeye gets rolling

Any company that would refuse to hire me based on my support for the LGBT community would not be a company I would like to work for. Mark Korey President of Engineering Allies “Employers may discriminate depending on one’s gender identity,” Haaser said. “But I think neglecting to hire someone on a basis of their gender is frankly rather stupid. A sense of one’s self which exists within one’s mind is no one else’s business and has absolutely no reflection on one’s ability to work.” For some LGBTQ students, though, disclosing their gender or personal information isn’t all that frightening. Matt Korey, president of Engineering Allies, an LGBTQ support club at OSU, and a third-year in biomedical engineering, said he isn’t worried about potential employers finding out that he’s involved with LGBTQ groups. “Any company that would refuse to hire me based on my support for the LGBT community would not be a company I would like to work for,” Korey said. “If they refuse to hire you based on that information, then that company may not be the right place for you.” Korey said it’s good for companies to know about potential employees’ gender information before they’re hired. “If you do identify as one of the 50 new gender options (on Facebook), (and) if a company doesn’t know this information about you before hiring you, this may be a serious problem,” Korey said. “For example, if you interview as ‘James,’ and you show up to work on the first day as ‘Jamie,’ you may spark a response that may make you uncomfortable. I believe if you are seriously looking for a long-time position within a company, that company deserves the right to know that information about you.” Korey said clubs like Engineering Allies can help LGBTQ students become more confident by making gender identity not a “big deal.” “The fact of the matter is that there are so many things that make every single person on this earth who they are,” Korey said. “My sexuality, your sexuality, anyone’s sexuality is just one small part of all of the things that make us incredible people.”

Participants in last year’s Pelotonia bike through Columbus. Team Buckeye for Pelotonia has raised about $111.9K of its $2.5M goal so far.

ISABELLA GIANNETTO Lantern reporter Ohio State’s Pelotonia team is gliding toward the August race faster than it has in past years. Team Buckeye for Pelotonia has raised about $111,900 of its $2.5 million goal so far, which is 102 percent ahead of what it had raised at this time last year. There are currently 44 pelotons - groups of five or more people - registered to ride with Team Buckeye, 10 of which are student peletons, said Karl Koon, director of development for Pelotonia at OSU’s Wexner Medical Center James Comprehensive Cancer Center. “It’s still really early in the registration process at this point, but we are ahead of the game and we want to continue to maintain that momentum and stay on the positive side,” Koon said. Koon said the goal this year is to have 1,350 riders on Team Buckeye: 350 students and 1,000 non-student riders. Pelotonia is an annual three-day bike ride based in Columbus to raise money for cancer research, which is set to take place Aug. 8 to 10 this year. Registration began in early January. OSU’s team, Team Buckeye, competes each year

and is comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni and others. There were 2,462 riders registered in Pelotonia as a whole as of Tuesday, according to the Pelotonia website, with more than $646,000 raised so far. Koon said there are several routes riders can choose from. “There are six different rides to participate in, ranging from a minimum of 25 miles to a maximum of 180 miles and each ride has a unique fundraising level attached to it,” Koon said. OSU students who are new Team Buckeye participants are required to pay $25 to register. Non-students are required to pay $100 for registration until July 9, when the fee is raised to $150. The lowest minimum fundraising goal for students is $650 for a route and the highest minimum goal is set at $975. Non-students have a minimum fundraising goal of $1,200 for a route while the highest minimum goal is $2,220, depending on the route chosen. Those who want to participate but not ride can also contribute $10 to register as a virtual rider. “The average student last year raised $1,038, which exceeded the maximum goal of $975, so those students who participated raised more money than

campus ‘Dolphin Tale’ vet encourages unknown in speech Isabella Giannetto Lantern reporter

Spontaneous spring snow storm There were scattered snow showers on Ohio State’s campus March 25.

Juli Goldstein’s resume includes marine mammals, a major movie and beauty pageants. She said one of her most important roles, however, is to encourage women to have a voice. Goldstein, a marine mammal veterinarian and assistant research professor at Florida Atlantic University, was a guest speaker for the OSU’s Women in Math and Science distinguished women in science lecture series. She lectured at the Veterinary Medical Center Auditorium Monday and Tuesday. She worked on the set of the 2011 film “Dolphin Tale,” which is based on a true story about an injured dolphin named Winter. Alongside four other veterinarians, she served as an on-site doctor for Winter, Goldstein was involved in some of Winter’s early medical treatments and helped her to learn how to swim again with the help of a prosthetic tail. Goldstein sat on the original board that discussed if it was even possible to make a prosthetic tail for a dolphin. “That was a very exciting time when the idea came up because no one had ever done it,” Goldstein said in an interview with The Lantern. On the day of the wrap-up party for the film, Goldstein and her team rescued another dying dolphin named Hope. Hope’s survival story lead to the plot of a sequel, “Dolphin Tale 2,” which is set be released Sept. 19. “I have a cameo in the second film and got to work and do (some) technical advising to the director,” Goldstein said. “It was very exciting to be involved on that side of it, and I never thought when I went to vet school, I would be walking a red carpet in Hollywood.” She earned a Bachelor of Science in zoology from Auburn University and a doctorate of veterinary medicine from Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Her love for animals began when she was 2 years old, she said, after her German Shepherd was put down. “It was very hard to deal with that grief as a small child of losing your animal and best friend, so I decided on that very day that I wanted to become a veterinarian so no other animal would have to be put to sleep,” Goldstein said during her lecture. “Unfortunately, that was wishful thinking, but it was that one event that changed my entire path and is the reason for everything that I do.” As a teenager, Goldstein began competing in beauty pageants and acquired speaking skills from pageant coaches that helped her later as a veterinarian. “A very big part of being a vet is talking to your clients and relating to them, and those lessons I use in my career, I directly attribute to all of those pageants,” Goldstein said. Goldstein also founded the Stryder Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides emotional and financial support for animals and their owners during the diagnosis and treatment of canine cancer. Margaret Stinstrom, a second-year in biology and vice president of OSU’s Women in Math and Science, introduced Goldstein and said her endeavors are admirable.

Juli Goldstein poses with the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland, Margaret Stinstrom, vice president of the OSU’s Women in Math and Science Club and Anne Carey, the club’s adviser. “Her beauty, brains, warm heart and dedication to the advancement of women in science is uplifting and provides us with the courage to face the many challenges (women) face in our pursuit of science,” Stinstrom said. Some OSU veterinary students said Goldstein’s story motivated them. Karissa Magnuson, a third-year in veterinary medicine, said it was fun to hear Goldstein speak. “What she does is really exciting and for me was something to look forward to and keep me going before I start clinics in a couple of weeks,” Magnuson said. Yvette Chretien, a third-year in veterinary medicine, said Goldstein’s story reassured her as she goes into her fourth year because she is busy planning for post-graduation. “Hearing her story about where your career can take you and that you can succeed in working with these amazing animals was really great,” Chretien said. “And knowing that even if I don’t get certain opportunities right off the bat, (I) can still follow (my) dreams.” Goldstein said she hopes to set an example for others. “As a role model and beauty queen, my experiences go beyond the make-up, hair and the pretty clothes,” Goldstein said in an interview with The Lantern. “It’s setting an example for young girls and giving back to your community and using that title and prestige to have a voice.” JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Pelotonia from 1A they needed to on an average basis,” Koon said. Koon said all of the money Team Buckeye raises for Pelotonia stays at OSU for cancer research. Last year, 1,178 people rode on Team Buckeye. Only a small number of them failed to meet their minimum fundraising goals and were charged the amount they had not raised, Koon said. “We’re talking six or seven people who actually were charged, and there are many ways that we as Team Buckeye support our riders to help make sure that they reach their financial goal,” Koon said. About 6,700 people rode in Pelotonia last year, raising more than $11.2 million. David Winterstein, a fourth-year in industrial and systems engineering and captain of Team Buckeye student riders, said this is his fifth year participating in Pelotonia.

“After I learned that one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life, I figured I should do something about it,” Winterstein said. “What kept me doing it was seeing the support from the Columbus community and how cool that OSU plays a huge part in that.” Winterstein said he plans to ride a 180-mile route this year. Katie Tomaszewski, a second-year in international development studies and the Team Buckeye partnerships chair, said she rides for her dad who died from colorectal cancer. She rode a 180-mile route last year and plans to ride a 100-mile route this fall. “The money raised in Pelotonia goes to the James toward clinical trials and research and that’s where my dad was receiving treatment,” Tomaszewski said. “It’s one of the most impactful things you could do as a student to save lives.”

to win four national titles, something Ryan said is a very reasonable goal because of Stieber’s character. “As monumental as the task is, it is simplified by his faith and the love that he has in his life,” Ryan said. “He has complete control of his mind. He doesn’t allow it to go to the ‘what-ifs?’” Stieber echoed his coach, saying his focus on the task at hand is never in question. “I just have to keep my edge, keep doing what I have been doing,” Stieber said. “I have been successful doing the same thing so I will listen to my coaches and hopefully be back in the position to win it again.”

Despite his success over the past years, Stieber said his motivation to win is greater than ever. “The thing that I haven’t gotten, and we haven’t gotten yet, is a team national title, so that’s the thing that is going to push me,” Stieber said. “For the team to do the best, that means I have to do my best.” Ryan agreed with his star wrestler and said the sky is the limit for not just Stieber, but for the entire Buckeye team next season. “109 points won (the team national championship) this year,” Ryan said. “We have the potential to score 145-150 points. And that is real.”

Some students, though, are upset their voices weren’t involved in the decision. USG Vice President Josh Ahart said USG tried to reach out to the commencement speaker selection committee throughout the year but never received any responses. “The vice president of USG gets to appoint (someone) to certain committees, so I did appoint someone to the commencement speaker selection committee, and they tried several times to get in contact with that committee chair,” said Ahart, a fourth-year in public affairs. “No emails were ever responded to, no emails were ever forwarded or responded to … I never heard anything all year.” He added that other things have been going smoothly this year, despite the changes in leadership. “I have been hearing that this is a transition period for the university. This is a transition period for the entire university, not just this committee, and every other committee has been fine this year,” Ahart said. “I don’t think that’s any excuse for something as big as the commencement speaker. Everything else has been working just fine.” Niraj Antani, an OSU alumnus who was on the commencement speaker selection committee last year when U.S. President Barack Obama was chosen to speak at the 2013 Spring Commencement, said he was surprised to hear there was no student voice in this year’s selection. “That is disappointing because I think having student input in the process is valuable, and also, it’s the students’ commencement speaker, so having a graduating student on that committee is useful and necessary,” Antani said. He said there are typically two students — one undergraduate and one graduate or professional student — on the committee. Antani said his input, and the recommendations he received from other students, was valued. “The committee was very receptive to my ideas for people who the students suggested,” Antani said. Commencement is set to take place May 4 at noon at Ohio Stadium, and about 10,000 students are expected to graduate. Some of those soon-to-be graduates said the decision could have been more inclusive. Seth Teplitsky, a fourth-year in biology who is

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC political talk show ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews,’ was announced as OSU’s Spring 2014 commencement speaker March 21. set to graduate in May, said students should have had a voice. “In an ideal world, you’re always going to have the students have a say on what goes on in the university, especially for something as big as the commencement speaker,” Teplitsky said. “I don’t think it’s necessarily the end of the world but I think it could have been handled better.” Ahart said he hopes students will have more of an input in upcoming years. “In the future, (the university) needs to adhere to the policies that students are on the committees,” he said. “Ohio State talks about the shared government model a lot and we are very proud of it. This was a situation where it was not utilized and some students might not be happy with the speaker selection. They were not able to provide that input that is so vital.”

studentvoice Commencement speaker doesn’t represent OSU values Letter to the editor: During my four years at Ohio State, I have come to fully appreciate open dialogue for understanding many different points of views, whether this is politics, religion, culture, ideas, etc. There is no question in my mind that this is good and we all grow through open dialogue. Open dialogue has become a value I will cherish for the rest of my life and I thank OSU for instilling this value in me. However, I am deeply disappointed in OSU for selecting Chris Matthews as the commencement speaker for my graduation. It is not because he is a hard line liberal, but rather because he is directly against open dialogue. News organizations like MSNBC and Fox News, while expressing their freedom of speech, do not promote open dialogue in any way. Chris Matthews has only his agenda in mind, whether he is interviewing a Democrat or Republican. He will distort any interview or news story for the benefit of his agenda and belittle those he does not agree with. The same can be said for Bill O’Reilly with Fox News. This is not what higher education stands for, it is not what OSU stands for, and it is not what I stand for. Commencement will be one of the most exciting days of my life. I will be one of thousands of soonto-be graduates in attendance celebrating our great accomplishments here. Selecting Chris Matthews as our speaker has not changed that for me, and it should not change that for you. However, I am disappointed OSU has turned against its values of open dialogue to promote biased media trying to manipulate the general public. Courtesy of MCT

Aerie’s ‘real you’ campaign doesn’t define womanhood melissa prax Lantern reporter The real woman. Is a “real woman” what men want, what women view their ideal selves as, or what everyone who was born as or considers themselves a woman is? I have seen the memes and articles pouring over on social media, feeding ideas of what a real woman is. “The media” are blamed for why women feel bad about themselves. During shopping sprees, women blame the models for their low self-confidence and imperfections, and say they long to see “real women” in the blown up pictures and magazines. So when American Eagle’s lingerie brand, Aerie, began using “real women” (read: not edited) in their spring 2014 campaign, many women ran to the stores. Ingenious marketing, but many women are missing the point. They think they are finally being celebrated, yet the “real women” used in this campaign are being used in the same way any model is: to sell lingerie. As for American Eagle brand models that are still airbrushed and altered in advertising — are they not real women? I like to compare the modeling industry to watching a movie. I watch a movie because I want to be taken out of my own life. Often, the comedies or chick flicks I turn on are over exaggerations of my life, but if it was exactly like my life, it would be boring and I wouldn’t want to watch it. I can try on the clothing and see it on myself, so I’ll know how it will look on me anyway. I want to see how it looks in a blown up picture with wings or perfectly styled accessories. I don’t need a model to show me how it will look on myself — that is why there are fitting rooms.

The definition of beauty will constantly change, but healthy standards will not. Many women today reference pictures of Marilyn Monroe and other stars of her time as what “real women” look like. Monroe apparently used hormone cream on her face to whiten her skin, and her weight changed regularly during her roles, according to an article in “Examiner,” an online magazine about arts and entertainment, news, etc. Those manipulations are hardly healthy. Today, medical experts know more about what fat and hormone imbalances can do to the body. Medical recommendations for a certain body mass index have not changed despite a higher growing obese population in the U.S. Subcutaneous fat, the fat you can grab, and visceral fat, the fat that can surround your organs, is not healthy. Fat does not depreciate your womanhood, but it should not enhance it either. Living longer and healthier should be the goal. Rather than celebrating “real women” who have to be “curvy” in order to be someone you see on the street, we should celebrate healthy women who care about their bodies and their minds. Personally I am a 5-foot-8-inch, 120 pound woman and I am sick of my curvy friends making me feel to blame for their lowered self-confidence. I try to ignore their comments of why I can get more guys because of my body type. I know how to dress my body and can carry on a well-rounded conversation and have had plenty of larger friends who can do the same. Defining what a real woman is, rather than just living is exhausting and a waste of time. How can this issue become so complicated when it is simple: just be. Be a woman.

Youth protests in Venezuela show shift toward democracy yehia mekawi For The Lantern History will look back at the 2010s as a decade where humanity collectively decided dictatorship was outdated. It started in Tunisia, where an entire people almost spontaneously decided to overthrow President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in 2010. The ensuing spiral was quick and successive, with protests hitting Egypt and spreading throughout the Middle East. And just as it seemed as though this democracy movement had all but peaked in Syria, news erupted of protests in both Ukraine and Thailand. The Arab Spring had gone global. The most recent, and in many ways most interesting, revolts are currently underway in Venezuela, where people, politics and power seem to be as divided as ever. But to say that the Venezuelan revolts are following a similar linearity to that followed by other dictatorshiptoppling countries would be a grave mistake. Venezuela’s case is an interesting one, especially when considering how the protests started. In most countries, the poor receive the brunt end of dictatorial oppression, and therefore are an autocrat’s chief concern. However, in Venezuela, it is middle class college students who served as the igniter for countrywide protests. And rather than having a particularly violent incident as their spark, the students gathered in peaceful marches on Feb. 12, the Venezuelan National Youth Day. The cause of the protests dwindles down to two different, yet surprisingly related, factors: inflation and lack of security. The general violence Venezuelans face on a daily basis is shocking and, according to The New York Times, in 2010 Venezuela officially became more dangerous than Iraq. The numbers are powerful, with

Then-Vice President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela greets the crowd as thousands of supporters of then-President Hugo Chavez pay respects as his funeral procession travels through Caracas, Venezuela, March 6, 2013. more than 24,000 deaths in Venezuela last year. What these numbers mean for Venezuelans is a very cautious and paranoid lifestyle, and a big cause of these protests is that criminals are not the only concern for citizens. According to a student in Venezuela who helped with this article, Venezuelans also live in fear of governmentsanctioned, plainclothes police named tupamaros, who terrorize civilians and suppress any voice of dissent. Crime has not been growing in parallel with inflation, but rather as a result of it. As prices skyrocket and inflation soars to more

than 50 percent, regular, everyday commodities such as milk and bread are starting to fall into the hands of black markets, and civilians find themselves forced to deal with criminals. As tensions rose in Venezuela and it seemed clear anti-government voices were going to garner significant attention, two primary figures appeared in opposition to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. One is Henrique Capriles, the man who ran against Maduro for president in the first place, losing to Maduro by a very slim margin. Although there were allegations

of counterfeiting and a clear lack of transparency in the elections, Capriles remained oddly pacifistic, maintaining that protests were not the solution to widespread corruption. His fellow opposition leader is Leopoldo Lopez, a former mayor who took a much firmer stance in calling for protests and urging the people to march against the government. Lopez has grown into an almost symbolic icon in Venezuela, becoming a household name after he voluntarily turned himself into the police for accusations of terrorism and murder. And while Lopez’s sacrificial act served to remind the people of the importance of the protests, it also took away a much-needed leading figure. What makes the Venezuelan protests particularly curious is that observers can usually tell where the country is heading within the first few weeks of protesting. But that is not the case in Venezuela, as Maduro has shown no signs of stepping down, and the students have shown no signs of letting up. The country is divided, and so is the rest of the world. Messages of support for the protestors have flooded in from the U.S. and Europe, while some Latin American countries have voiced their loyalty to Maduro’s government. Even within the country, it’s not entirely clear whether people are demanding reform or upheaval. The path Venezuela will follow is a blurred one, even to the Venezuelans themselves.

Gateway, North Market partner for summer drive-in movies NINA BUDEIRI For The Lantern The drive-in movie experience won’t be exclusive to the edges of the city when films are screened outdoors in downtown Columbus this summer. The Gateway Film Center, collaborating with the North Market, plans to screen films outside North Market throughout the summer to recreate a classic drive-in movie environment. The movies are set to be shown on a 30-foot screen in the North Market parking lot, where visitors can watch from either their cars or on bleachers set up in the lot. “People who roll up on their bikes or take a Car2go are welcome to view the movies from the bleachers. The goal is to give everyone a chance to experience outdoor movies. It’s a classic American experience,” said Johnny DiLoretto, the Gateway Film Center’s director of operations. Scheduled movies are “Toy Story,” “Ghostbusters” and “Jaws” on May 3, June 13 and July 25, respectively. “We were trying to find great summer movies that families could enjoy, but also movies that everyone loves,” DiLoretto said. Tickets are set to be $18 per vehicle or $5 for pedestrians, according to the GFC website, and films are set to begin at sundown, around 9 p.m., rain or shine. “You can have 10 people in your car and still get in for $18,” DiLoretto said. North Market merchants are also slated to have concessions at the film screenings. “Any North Market merchant that would like to participate during the movies will be welcome to do so,” North Market Executive Director Rick Wolfe said. Mobile vendors such as Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Holy Smoke Barbecue will also be vending at movie showings, Wolfe said. Drive-in movie theaters have a history dating back to the 1930s, DiLoretto said, and though they were popular in following decades, there are far fewer drive-in theaters today. “People have just stopped going to drive-in movies once the cinema industry got so big,” DiLoretto said. “But most people who love movies have fond memories of drive-in theaters.” Megan Novotny, a first-year in pre-nursing, said she would be interested returning to Columbus from her hometown in the Cleveland area to attend one of the movies. “North Market is a really popular area, and it would be nice to have something to do there other than shop,” Novotny said. “I like the North Market and the movie list a lot, and it would be cool to go to the market (and) make an evening out of it.” North Market is located at 59 Spruce St.

When Jamie Larson auditioned online for season 29 of MTV’s “The Real World,” she had no idea how the show would change her life. “I get bored easy,” the 22-year-old Pflugerville, Texas, native said. She then said she thought, regarding trying out for the 2014 season, “What the hell, why not just try out?” “The Real World” is set to host a casting call for its 30th season in Columbus on Saturday, and Ohio State students and the Columbus community will have the opportunity to take a chance to audition for the reality television show. The auditions are set to be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Big Bar and Grill, located at 1716 N. High St. Senior casting director for “The Real World,” Martin Booker, said candidates should bring a picture of themselves to the casting and suggested they arrive early. At the casting, the candidates will fill out an application then meet with a casting director and be seen in groups of 10, Booker said. According to MTV’s website, candidates have to be 20 years or older, and look like they are between ages 20-24. “The group audition is your chance to speak up and take the opportunity for the casting directors to get to know you,” Booker said. The following day, the casting directors are set to hold single interviews for select candidates, Booker said. These interviews are in-depth, one-on-one interviews on camera where the casting directors really get to know the applicants. “The Real World” has been running for more than 20 years, success which Booker attributes to the show’s casting. “It comes with casting interesting, dynamic people,” Booker said. Booker said he has casted 12 seasons of “The Real World” and the casting directors come back to Columbus because of the real all-American people they meet. The casting directors are not focusing on crazy people when casting, but are returning to the intrigue of genuine and strong people, Booker said. “People with dynamic personalities, people that have a view and are able to express it. They walk in a room and they draw attention,” Booker said. McKenna Cimperman, a first-year in wildlife and forestry, said she was surprised to hear “The Real World” was casting in Columbus, and thought students would be excited for the opportunity to audition. “It will be packed,” Cimperman said. “I think everybody will show up.” Larson said students or people who want a new experience in their lives should definitely audition. However, she warned students who are close to graduation and beginning their careers to think before auditioning. “You lose track of things inside your career,” Larson said. Larson said she was grateful to have had been on the show — particularly season 29 which came with a different twist. The season, dubbed “Ex-Plosion,” had exes of some of the cast members on the show. Booker said ratings are particularly high for season 29. “I was very happy I got to be on the season that changed everything for ‘The Real World,’” Larson said. Booker said so far there are no twists planned for Season 30. Larson said she met some good friends on the show, especially her current boyfriend, fellow Season 29 cast member, Tom Buell . Booker mentioned that “The Real World” faces alteration as years pass, due to shifting trends. “The show has the ability to change when culture changes, it changes along with culture because it does feature young people,” Booker said.

Summer Music Festivals OPINION

Artists Sun Kil Moon, Death Grips make it a must to attend Pitchfork Music Festival MATTHEW LOVETT Asst. arts editor Pitchfork Music Festival — where the online publication meets fullblown summertime event. I have to hand it to Pitchfork; every summer since 2006, the fest has dished out the best of the lesser-known acts to Chicago’s Union Park. Typically, the bands that take its stages are those that have received the highly-coveted acclaim of “Best New Music” from the festival’s namesake. Despite the ethos and some attendees that sort of drive the fest — which, admittedly, can be drenched in pretension — it does book some of the most intriguing acts around, boasting an only-seenhere distinction. If the crowd that attends isn’t your thing, it might be worth dealing with it for the price: a three-day pass is only $130 (CHEAP!), or $60 for single-day tickets, running July 18-20. Below you’ll find my five picks of what to see at Pitchfork, most of which you’ll be hard-pressed to see anywhere else in a festival format this summer. 1. Giorgio Moroder (July 18) The track “Giorgio by Moroder” on Daft Punk’s Grammy-winning hit album “Random Access Memories” encompasses, in a nutshell, the story of synth-god Giorgio Moroder. Which is super neat, given the man’s 40-plus years of a career is now being acknowledged by younger, modern-day audiences. I’m sure this nod from Daft Punk might contribute to Pitchfork’s reasoning behind bringing him to Chicago this summer. Moroder was, and might very well still be, the sound of the future; without much in the way of full-length albums under his belt in the last 20 years or so, the Pitchfork set might see him dabbling with his candy-like synth hooks from his electronic onset. Talk about getting chills in the summer time. 2. Sun Kil Moon (July 18)

For the Sun Kil Moon show, largely the downtrodden, melancholic singersongwriter project of Mark Kozelek, I would bring a box of tissues and a shoulder on which to lean. Over the course of his February release “Benji,” we find Kozelek coming to terms with a lot — well, mostly death, but the stories that unfold are not just those of mom and dad reaching the end. It’s friends, teenagers and even kids that are passing away (really sad s---, to say the least.) All of this is expressed with thick chordal structure and opulent texture to truly squeeze listeners’ hearts.

music. I prefer it when she pulls back a bit and lets the texture remain airy and dreamy, as she does on “Don’t Tell Me,” allowing her voice to simply flutter on top of it all. Nonetheless, even though Rodriguez’s tunes appear to be much more outgoing nowadays, Empress Of is just a swell touch on the Pitchfork lineup.

3. Death Grips (July 18) This is going to rule … if they show up. Publicity stunt or not, Death Grips’ decision to not show up to multiple shows where they were booked in 2013 raised many an eyebrow. If the punk-hiphop trio of Stefan Burnett (MC Ride), Zach Hill and Andy Morin (Flatlander) make it to Pitchfork, though, I know all will break loose, so be sure to get a good footing as the shows tend to incite at least a half-dozen monstrous circle pits. Ought to be a grand sight. 4. Twin Peaks (July 19) This Replacements-style crew breaches a space between dazed and settled, letting you float along, but with hooks to keep you in place with the songs. Pitchfork’s right in the neighborhood for this dream-pop/ indie-rock/straight-up rock ‘n’ roll bunch and might be the best band with which to start your Saturday. 5. Empress Of (July 19) Empress Of is the name Brooklynite Lorely Rodriguez takes on when she plays her peculiar, whimsical dance/pop

Coach Urban Meyer watches his players during spring practice March 20 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

daniel rogers Asst. sports editor As senior guard Aaron Craft’s shot helplessly rimmed out in the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s NCAA Tournament matchup against Dayton, there was another senior on the floor who watched as his career ended. For a moment, senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. wasn’t sure what the ball’s final fate was going to be. “You don’t have time to think about it,” Smith Jr. said after the game about the final shot by Craft. “You’ve got to get back to your spot to be wide open or if the ball may come to you or get into a position to tip the ball back in. But the ball didn’t just come off, it dangled on the rim for a second or so.” Craft might have been the headliner, but Smith Jr. had been there for every win and every loss of the last four seasons alongside Craft. Smith Jr. said losing to an in-state rival by a single point, 60-59, was a tough way to end his career. “This is definitely hard, I just, for the type of career me and Aaron had, it hurts that much more to end like this,” Smith Jr. said. “It caps it off — this is not a showing of what we have done for four years and it sucks. It definitely doesn’t feel good, I can’t really describe it right now.”

Joining the program in 2010, Smith Jr. was part of a landmark class for coach Thad Matta, a group that included Jared Sullinger and Deshaun Thomas — who both have since left to join the professional ranks — as well as J.D. Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert, who transferred to Toledo and Dayton, respectively. Although Smith Jr. was on the roster, it wasn’t until his sophomore year when he really broke into the Buckeye rotation. In 2011-12, Smith Jr. finished fifth on the team in minutes and points per game, helping OSU make a Final Four run that was eventually ended by Kansas. After a successful junior year, where Smith Jr. was third on the team with 9.2 points per game, the senior, alongside Craft, became the fastest player in OSU history to lead his team to 100 wins. “I don’t know if I’ve ever been prouder,” Matta said after the senior guards clinched their 100th win against North Florida Nov. 29. “Today is their 100th win at Ohio State. They’re the secondfastest in college basketball to get there … If you stop and think about how quick they got there, in 119 games, 100 wins, it’s amazing and I’ve never been prouder of two guys.” After the loss against Dayton, junior forward Sam Thompson said it was hard to have to bid farewell to the seniors after a close loss. “It’s a bitter feeling. You don’t want to send your seniors out on a note like this,” Thompson

Offense is what Urban Meyer is known for as a football coach. His spread system has helped him win two national championships, and win 83.7 percent of the games he’s been a head coach. But after watching Ohio State’s defense get torched in its final three games — two of them losses, to Michigan State and Clemson in the Big Ten Championship Game and 2014 Discover Orange Bowl, respectively — Meyer has said he is putting more of an emphasis on that side of the ball. He said the defense had to undergo an “overhaul” after last year — and so far, he likes what he’s seen after bringing in co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash and defensive line coach Larry Johnson. “It’s going well,” Meyer said Tuesday on how Ash is working with fellow co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell after OSU’s sixth spring practice. “We’re completely revamping the entire back end of how we do our business, and so far it’s been pretty good.” The Buckeyes finished 112th in the country last year in defending the pass, giving up 268 yards per game. That group lost leaders like linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback Bradley Roby and safety Christian Bryant to graduation or the NFL

Draft, but Meyer likes what he’s seen from their replacements so far in spring ball — particularly junior linebacker Joshua Perry, who is looking to fill Shazier’s shoes. “He’s really, he’s without question one of our top five most improved players,” Meyer said of Perry. “Demeanor’s always been there, work ethic’s been there and the toughness element is something that’s really improved. Love of the game and he’s a wonderful guy to coach.” Offensively, however, OSU has the task of replacing four offensive linemen as well as stud tailback Carlos Hyde, who were all big parts of OSU rushing for 4,321 yards last season. One of the replacements on the offensive line has already been set according to Meyer, who said redshirt-sophomore Pat Elflein has earned a starting spot. Elflein played admirably during the Michigan game last year, as well as the Big Ten Championship Game. As for running back, Meyer said Tuesday that between redshirtsenior Rod Smith, sophomore Ezekiel Elliott, redshirt-sophomores Warren Ball and Bri’onte Dunn, “no one’s really separated themselves yet.” Starting senior quarterback Braxton Miller hasn’t been taking snap all spring because of a shoulder surgery Feb. 21, but he’s been taking mental reps with a camera on his hat and reviewing them with

Junior midfielder David Planning (center) is hit after completing a pass during a game against Notre Dame March 25 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 13-7.

An unseasonal winter storm set the mood for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team’s tilt with No. 7 Notre Dame at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Coming off its first win in more than three weeks, the Buckeyes (2-6, 1-0) could not keep the momentum going as they fell to the Fighting Irish (4-2, 2-0), 13-7, Tuesday after the field was coated with a layer of snow prior to the start of the game. OSU coach Nick Myers said the Buckeyes didn’t take advantage of some opportunities throughout the course of the game and they can learn from their mistakes in the future. “I thought we battled hard,” Myers said. “It’s something that we can take away in terms of lessons learned — we have managed some situations better than we did today.” OSU got off to a quick start when sophomore attackman Carter Brown buried the ball past Notre Dame freshman goaltender Shane Doss, who made five saves in the game. But Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh scored two goals in 21 seconds and added a third four minutes later to give the Irish a 3-1 lead. OSU senior defenseman Joe Meurer said Kavanagh is a dynamic player and he personally didn’t do a good enough job limiting the attackman’s chances.

“He’s a great player and he makes a lot of plays,” Meurer said. “I was guarding him and I didn’t do my job today. I really don’t have anything else to say about that.” After two more goals pushed the Notre Dame lead to 5-1, OSU went on a run of its own. Junior midfielder Turner Evans scored for the Buckeyes with 45 seconds left in the quarter and junior attackman Reegan Comeault added another 40 seconds later off a pass from Evans that narrowed Notre Dame’s lead to to 5-3 before halftime. Coming out of the break, the Buckeyes continued their strong play after junior midfielders Jesse King and David Planning tallied goals to tie the game at 5. However, late goals by junior attackman Connor Doyle and Kavanagh gave Notre Dame a 7-5 heading into the fourth quarter. After Notre Dame added another goal less than a minute into the fourth quarter, OSU once again went on a run as Evans and Planning each scored their second goals to cut the lead back to one. But Notre Dame proved to be too strong as the Fighting Irish ended the game on a five-goal run to close out the victory. “We let it get away from us, that’s a team that can get on a run, they got on a run with their faceoffs and that’s where we let the game get away from us there in the middle part of the fourth quarter,” Myers said. Notre Dame won 15 of the 24 faceoffs in the contest, including six out of nine in the fourth quarter. Visit to read the rest of this story.

sports OPINION

‘1 and done’ rule bad for college basketball programs, fans TAYLOR CAMERON Lantern reporter It’s almost that time of year again, to say so long to college basketball season until next year … but wait, there’s a few things you won’t exactly be seeing next year. You won’t be seeing some of the country’s top players return for another season. Many, allowed by the “one and done” NBA draft rule, will enter their names into the 2014 NBA Draft. Players like forward Aaron Gordon of Arizona, guard Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, and forward Jabari Parker of Duke are likely to take their opportunity to abandon the arenas filled with young, hopefulhearted and spirited university fans to strive toward a game where their wins and successes are no longer a form of mere satisfaction with praise from loyal fans but come in the form of dollar signs and endorsement deals. This rule requiring players to only attend school one year before entering the draft not only lets down fans, but also allows young athletes into the big leagues a few years before their time. While there are many requirements for a player to be eligible for the NBA draft, the specific rule being debated here is this “one and done” rule, implemented in 2006. This rule states that any basketball player — at least 19 years old — is eligible for the draft if he has allowed one year to lapse since his

Meyer from 6A offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman. Not getting the actual reps with Miller on the field is “frustrating,” Herman said Tuesday, while also noting that the team has to replace four starters on the offensive line. Herman isn’t worried too much about that, though. “It’d be a bigger concern if I didn’t believe the talent was there, and if I didn’t believe in (offensive line coach) Ed Warinner,” Herman said. “This group of O-linemen, whether we like to say it or not is much farther ahead than the group of our O-linemen our first spring.” Another player who has improved is sophomore running back Dontre Wilson, who Meyer said “is the starting H at Ohio State,” as he looks to fulfill that hybrid position the offense so desperately needs. “But we’d like that hybrid position is really a key guy if we can do that,” Meyer said.

high school graduation. This was set forth to encourage high school basketball stars to not follow in the steps of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett and skip straight to the pros. Many NBA spokesmen have argued against these criteria. Those men only look at the game from a business standpoint and how that rule poses a threat of lost income to them, as the influx of young talent could help boost ticket and apparel sales by helping their teams improve. However, many others feel that requiring players to attend school for at least one year is not nearly enough. Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, suggested that players ought to stay in school for at least three years. I’m going to have to go with Cuban on this one. Speaking from a fan’s perspective, having players leave their beloved sports team after one year is not only upsetting but a let down. It completely discredits the phrase “we’ll get ‘em next year.” Not only will the team not ‘get ‘em next year’ when some of the best players leave and the team has to start back at square one every year to build team chemistry. Fans fall in love with these players. Children develop role models out of these athletes, but are broken-hearted when they can no longer sport the jersey of their favorite player because the player has moved on to bigger and better things. Speaking from a human-interest perspective, one year does not allow these athletes time to fully equip themselves for the real world. With having only one

year of college under their belt, this won’t give these players anything to fall back on pending a careerending injury. College is a self-exploration time that gives adolescents the freedom and time to truly discover who they are and learn life skills. These players won’t develop these characteristics when they skip ahead four years. Call me crazy or an NBA-hater, but imagine what the college ball game would look like if players were required to stay at least three or four years. There would no longer be fear that the best players would not return. These players would have more time to develop their skills, build team chemistry that would lead them to a possible national championship and would establish a stronger and supportive fan base. Not only would these players become better athletically but would be better prepared to handle the professional league and professional world. While Kansas is not as lucky, with many freshmen entering the draft, Ohio State fans are much more fortunate only losing one, likely two, players that stayed for more than one year, sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle and junior forward LaQuinton Ross. So while we are saddened to see Ross likely forgo his senior year eligibility, thanks for sticking with the Buckeyes for three years. An even bigger appreciation goes out to Aaron Craft for leading the Buckeyes for four solid years and for truly modeling, in my opinion, what college basketball should look like.

Herman echoed Meyer, saying the reason Wilson’s role was simple last year was because he wasn’t ready for anything more than that. “He couldn’t play receiver last year — he didn’t know what the hell he was doing,” Herman said of Wilson. “Didn’t know how to do it. He was 175 pounds or whatever the heck he was. So him and his ability limited us. And ability doesn’t just include running fast and making guys miss. There’s a lot that goes into and usability in the offense. Has had a great offseason and really took to the position and it still learning.” The Buckeyes are set to take on Navy in their first game of the season Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon.

Smith Jr. from 6A



said. “But I love them to death, I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and they’ll go down as having two of the best careers that Ohio State has ever seen.” Smith Jr. was the Buckeyes’ second leading scorer this season, averaging 11.0 points per game, but made up a trio of guards that gave OSU its status as one of the toughest defensive teams in the nation. The team finished 12th in the nation by only allowing an average of 59.8 points per game on defense . Although Smith Jr. was not one of the two Buckeyes named to the All-Big Ten defensive team (Craft and junior guard Shannon Scott were), he was vital to the team’s defensive identity. “That’s the name of the game,” Smith Jr. said after Dayton loss. “You need to play good defense, I don’t see teams that don’t play good defense, and can score the ball, win games. That’s been us, that’s been our team, that’s what

we built our team on. So much of our team is our defense … If we’re not as sound as we’ve been to win games on defense, we’re going to lose.” But despite the way it ended, Smith Jr. said he wouldn’t trade his time at OSU for anything. “Being allowed to play for Buckeye Nation and the real fans that support us and love us, I love those guys and had a blast, a great opportunity, best time of my life playing for those guys … Definitely didn’t want to end it this way, I know our true fans are as hurt as us right now, I wish things would have went differently.”
