Electronics in cars targeted by thieves

An onslaught of car break-ins near campus has caused some residents to consider relocating. Since May 1, at least 19 car break-ins in the area north of Lane Avenue have been reported. Daniel Jones, a second-year in criminology, said his car was broken into during the early morning hours last Tuesday. The next night, valuables were stolen from his roommate’s car. Soon, he began noticing that many neighboring cars also had smashed windows. Jones said he believes all the break-ins are related, as each incident seems to follow the same pattern. “They busted out the same window on most of the cars,” he said. “It was always the front passenger window that was broken.” Stolen items have included iPods, GPS devices and computers, Jones said. Many of the police reports describe similar incidents. In almost every case, a car window was smashed open, and any valuables left inside were stolen. Richard Morman, the deputy chief of police at Ohio State, said car break-ins have long been one of the biggest problems facing area law enforcement. However, he said most of the recent break-ins

GPA won’t change when quarters become semesters THOMAS BRADLEY Senior Lantern reporter bradley.321@osu.edu You don’t need to be a math major to compute GPAs in a semester system, but officials said credit hours might be a bit trickier. When Ohio State switches to semesters starting Summer Quarter 2012, the Semester Conversion Coordinating Committee has decided that all data, including cumulative grade points, will be multiplied by .67. Previously, the committee had decided to multiply all data by 2/3, and has just recently decided that 2/3 is defined as .67. In addition to the cumulative grade point, the .67-rule will also apply to graded hours and earned hours. The committee decided that all credits earned on the quarter system would be equal to 2/3 of a semester credit. Steven Fink, co-chair of the committee and an English professor, made it clear that students’ GPA will not change at all. The change only applies to the credits they have earned. “The number itself is not going to change,” Fink said. When the committee converts the data of the student records, the GPA under quarters is always the same under semesters. After the committee has converted all the data, the conversion will appear on the bottom of students’ transcripts. The info will be after the last quarter of enrollment as a “placeholder term.”

Musician still a ‘powerhouse’ at age 88 ANDI HENDRICKSON For The Lantern hendrickson.1085@osu.edu For some Ohio State students, playing music is just something to do between classes, but for one community orchestra member who’s 88 years young, it’s something he won’t give up. Bill Sims joined community orchestra three years ago, one year after its inception. Sims is part of Program 60, an opportunity for people more than 60-yearsold to take classes for free at OSU. Sims plays in the freshman orchestra and the community orchestra at OSU and takes classes in history, philosophy and music theory. “I haven’t played in an orchestra since 1978 when I was playing in the Columbus Symphony,” Sims said. “I started then in 2008 playing in the community orchestra … and I just go there to have fun.” OSU’s community orchestra class brings together non-music majors to rehearse once a week. Students of different ages, majors, backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to join the class, said Jacob Dakon, conductor of the orchestra. “The name, the very nature, of the orchestra is through community,” Dakon said. “I think Bill … finds friends, you know, from different generations which he can talk to, that he can communicate with … He gets to participate in something where age doesn’t matter anymore.” Sims, who attended OSU from 1940 to 1943, and again after World War II in 1946, said he began playing the violin at age 8. He said he hopes to keep playing for the rest of his life. “I think, in a way, I just enjoy the physical act of playing, really, as well as hearing the music I am playing,” Sims said. “It’s a tactile thing as well as being an aural objective.” Dakon said Sims is a great student who brings not only diversity but also many years of experience to the orchestra. “There’s nothing bad to say about Bill,” Dakon said. “If anything, the guy is

campus Wanted: the FBI’s new Most Wanted man ALEXIS PRESKAR Lantern reporter preskar.1@osu.edu For about 12 years, Osama bin Laden reigned at the top of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. When his death was announced May 1, some turned their focus to who will take his title as the worst criminal. “The United States wanted Osama more than anyone else. He was seen as the biggest threat,” said Richard Herrmann, the director of the Mershon Center for International Security Studies at Ohio State. Though bin Laden’s picture is now covered with bold letters reading “DECEASED” on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted page, there are thousands of other candidates primed to take his spot, according to FBI.gov. But just because the No. 1 threat to U.S. security has been eliminated, it does not mean the No. 2 criminal automatically moves up. “Any time one of the Ten Most Wanted fugitives comes off the list, there’s a lot of careful consideration of who would replace that

individual,” FBI spokesman Paul Bresson told the New York Times. “I don’t expect it will be filled immediately.” The FBI did not respond to requests for comment. Some students were less concerned about who filled bin Laden’s spot than they were about the characteristics the next No. 1 criminal should have. Josh Becker, a first-year in biochemistry, said the next Most Wanted criminal should be “someone that has proven to be dangerous in the past and is likely to continue to be dangerous.” Although the FBI is busy considering who will be the next to top the list, Herrmann casts doubt on the importance of numerical order. “Everyone on the wanted list is wanted. Does it matter (who’s No. 1)?” Herrmann said. One of the differences between the people on the Most Wanted list is the price on their head, according to FBI.gov. Although information leading to the direct arrest of bin Laden was worth $25 million, the majority of the fugitives are only valued at about $100,000. Information on the closest contender to bin Laden, James J.

Bulger, is still priced at only $2 million, according to the website. Bulger is wanted for extortion, money laundering, 19 counts of murder, narcotic distribution and conspiracies to commit some of the aforementioned crimes. For someone on the Most Wanted list to be removed without death or capture, one of two conditions must be met, according to the FBI’s website. Either the federal case against the individual is dismissed or the criminal no longer fits the criteria to be considered “most wanted.” According to its website, to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, a fugitive must be particularly dangerous to society or have a lengthy record of serious crimes. The FBI must also believe that national publicity will help assist in capturing the fugitive. But some experts believe the decision to place people on the list can be complicated. “I think it’s a political decision, the person they’re putting the most effort after,” Herrmann said.

Sororities fight stereotypes, raise money for charities VICTORIA JOHNSTON Lantern reporter johnston.517@osu.edu Some members of Ohio State’s Panhellenic Association hope to combat stereotypes as they raise money for their selected charities throughout the year. PHA is a student-run governing body of 16 sorority chapters with about 1,500 women at OSU. Throughout the year, each sorority raises money for a local charity that supports a cause chosen by their national chapters by holding events for students, alumni, family or the community to participate and donate money. Last year, PHA raised more than $90,000 for their respective charities, said Stacy Duh, a third-year in pharmaceutical sciences and director of philanthropy for PHA. This year, the group raised $87,000 in Autumn and Winter Quarter alone. With Spring Quarter still in session, the exact amounts for the quarter have not been counted, but are estimated at about $42,150. Along with the other OSU councils, like Inter-Fraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council, PHA helped raise $11,000 during Greek Week, which was April 29 though

May 4. The money raised will be donated to build a playground at the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) Journey Academy in Columbus, said Kelly Finzer, director of community service and philanthropy for Greek Week. Duh said each chapter member in a sorority pays dues at the beginning of every quarter for the philanthropy budget. “One hundred percent of the money and donations we receive goes toward the charities. Chapters have a budget of a certain amount, and all of the money we raise goes right to the philanthropy,” Duh said. The chapter’s own dues, service and time are also put into the events. “We’re not a huge percentage of students (at OSU), and I know there’s a lot of stereotypes with us,” Duh said. “I just wish people could see how much we do for philanthropy events and how important it is for us. All 16 chapters have at least one event, and while it’s more simple to do service, this is a great way to get more people involved in what we’re passionate about.” The chapters put on a wide range of events from banquet dinners to selling a variety of late-night snack foods such as hotdogs, s’mores and pancakes. Most events require the students to pay a small amount of money, but that adds up quickly, Duh said. “Especially when they’re fun events, like flag football, a 5K or

dodgeball, students usually have a great time being a part of them,” Duh said. “It’s fun to get students involved in something that’s important to us,” Duh said. Aliza Bruchs, a second-year in marketing and philanthropy chair for Delta Delta Delta, said she enjoys watching the students stop by the late-night events held on weekends. “People seem to love it. They always come out because it’s not built into their schedule and they can come with their friends,” Bruchs said. “We get a lot of people who don’t really expect it while they’re walking down High St. and they say, ‘Oh my gosh! Tacos!’” The women of the sorority, Chi Omega, held a tailgate at the Ohio Union during football season and raised almost $17,000 for their charity, Make-A-Wish Foundation for a young boy named Andrew. “We were able to meet Andrew and help him achieve his goal. He wanted to meet a famous tennis player, and we were the ones who helped him do that,” said Katie Schings, a second-year in nursing and philanthropy chair for Chi Omega. The event included watching the away football game on a big screen and a silent auction for the parents, family members and friends. “We really take pride in how much money we raise,” Schings said. “It’s a shame most people overlook this really great thing because we do work hard to benefit our charity.”

Theft from 1A

Removing valuables, locking doors could prevent theft, police say becoming so frequent that he and his roommates are planning on living elsewhere in the future. “People don’t respect property,” he said. Jones said the police are monitoring the area a little more closely as a result of these break-ins, but he feels more can always be done. “The police have stepped up patrol around here, but that can only deter so much,” he said. Jones has not been informed of any new developments from the Columbus Police. A.J. Miller, a third-year in industrial engineering, said his car was broken into twice in the same weekend earlier this year. Although this incident might not be related to the recent break-ins, he said he believes this is a campus-wide problem that deserves more attention. Morman said the increase of off-campus incidents has not led to any notable problems on campus. “We have not noticed a big spike,” he said.

Musician from 1A

Musician plays to network with younger students, he says one of the most powerful players we have in the orchestra, and I mean, that’s saying a lot since he’s 88-years-old and he’s still a little powerhouse, so it’s fabulous.” Sims said Dakon really makes the class enjoyable as an instructor. Even though Sims has played many of these pieces before, he said Dakon finds a way to help him improve his playing. “He is, I think, the best conductor that I’ve had while I’ve been in the orchestra,” Sims said. “Rehearsals are a pleasure because you’re learning, you’re developing skills, you’re getting a good bit of practice when you’re there taking the lessons from the conductor.” Meghan Nestleroth, a second-year in pharmaceutical sciences and a cello player, said she looks up to Sims and is inspired by the older musicians in the class.

Miller said he talked with the police at the time of the break-ins, but he hasn’t received any new information. “The first time I did the police report I had to do it over the phone,” he said. “The second time, I demanded a patrol officer to come down and take the report personally, and they dusted my car for fingerprints and stuff, but I never heard back.” Miller said he thinks landlords should utilize spotlights and motion detector lights to help avoid future incidents. Weiner said most of these crimes can be prevented simply by following a few simple steps. “Lock your vehicles. Take out items that are in plain view,” he said. “You can prevent a lot of crime just by taking GPS units out, taking out loose change. Anything that can possibly be an easy item to remove and then resell later, which could mean a whole lot of different things.” Weiner said many OSU students don’t follow these steps because they come from rural or suburban areas where crime like this isn’t as prevalent. “Criminals are aware of the types of students that are coming to Ohio State,” he said. “They really work on preying on those individuals. It’s just an easy target area.”

“It makes me happy to see that (older people) are still playing their instruments and still seem to be enjoying it,” she said. “I would love to still be playing my cello 30 years from now and still enjoy it and be in a group like community orchestra.” Sims said for him, the class is less about the final grade and more about having the opportunity to network with young musicians and share a love for music. “Last year, I was the stand partner of a lady who was in chemical engineering,” Sims said. “Now, unfortunately, she’s apparently got more chemical engineering to do and she can’t really play. We had a nice time talking to each other.” At the end of the quarter, the community and freshmen orchestras put on a public concert, which Sims said he looks forward to each quarter and strives to do the best he can on the stage. “I think really my goal is just to be able to attempt to be a good example to some of those young people,” Sims said. “Whether they know it or not.”

The newsletter to students from the committee said the Office of Student Life conducted a survey to gauge students’ knowledge about the quarter-to-semester switch. The survey found that students know there is a semester switch in 2012, and most students understand the advantages of the switch. The survey also reported that students are beginning to become anxious for more details about course loads, scheduling classes, fee payment deadlines and effects on their employment.

GPA not affected by semester switch

Violent video games spur fights in academia, Supreme Court to mediate GORDON GANTT Lantern reporter gantt.26@osu.edu When the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments for a case centered around keeping violent video games from minors, one Ohio State professor took action. Brad Bushman, professor of communication and psychology, has spent the last 25 years studying the effects of media violence on aggression. He concluded that violent games contribute to increased aggression and thus are harmful to kids. Based on his years of expertise in media violence, Bushman and several colleagues filed an amicus brief in the case Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchant’s Association. Amicus briefs are unsolicited opinions by “friends” of the court and are commonly filed by interested parties who feel strongly about a case. This case focuses on a California law prohibiting the sale of games which are rated “Mature” or “Adults Only” to children younger than 18. The entertainment industry argues the law infringes its right to free speech and that there is not definitive evidence that violent games are harmful to children. Bushman and the 114 other academics and social scientists that signed the brief said the evidence is overwhelming that violent games contribute to

aggressive behavior in children and the law protects kids from harmful influences. “Adults 18 years and older can do whatever they want,” Bushman said. “But we don’t let kids drink beer or smoke cigarettes, and I think it is also inappropriate to let kids play games that are not age appropriate for them.” The brief Bushman contributed to and signed, known unofficially as the Gruel brief, was one of many submitted to the high court. One other brief caught Bushman’s attention, however. Known as the Millett brief, this document was signed by 82 academics and social scientists, and argued that violent games are not harmful. That left Bushman baffled. “Who are these 82 people who signed the Millett brief?” Bushman said. “They claim to be experts. Are they really experts?” Bushman and two colleagues who signed the Gruel brief, psychologist Craig Anderson of Iowa State University and Deana Pollard Sacks of the Texas Southern University School of Law, analyzed the credentials of the experts in both briefs. The study counted the number of academic works published by all the signers on violence and media violence, and then measured the credibility and impact of the journals in which they were published. “If you’re an expert, hopefully you’ve done research on the topic,” Bushman said. After analyzing the data,

they found of the 115 signers of the Gruel brief, 60 percent had conducted published research on violence and aggression and 37 percent had published at least one article on the specific topic of media violence. In contrast, 17 percent of the Millett signers published research on violence and aggression and 13 percent on the specific topic of media violence. The research also found that of those who were published, Gruel experts were published in top tier journals more than 48 times more often than Millett experts. This, Bushman and his colleagues argue, proves the Gruel brief to be more credible. They filed the data with the court and will publish the study in the May edition of the Northwestern University Law Review Colloquy. In a phone call, Patricia Anne Millett, the Washington, D.C.based attorney for whom the Millett brief is named, declined to comment. John Sherry, an associate professor of communications at Michigan State University, signed the Millett brief. Sherry said in an email that Bushman and his colleagues embrace a different set of assumptions, and as such “it makes little sense to reply to his ‘study.’” Sherry compared it to a reporter from The New York Times, discussing a story with a reporter from the Russian news agency Pravda. “With such a different

set of assumptions,” Sherry wrote, “there can be no fruitful discussion.” Bushman, who plays video games with his kids, said games are not all bad, as long as they are age appropriate. Jim Pickett, a fifth-year in art and technology, is the former leader of the Video Game Creation Club at OSU. The group has developed several “shooter games,” which could be interpreted as violent. Pickett said he thinks it is a parental responsibility to control what games kids play. “I think it is up to parents to control what content their children take in,” Pickett said. Bushman said it is difficult to monitor kids’ media intake when they are at a friend’s house, and the law may help keep violent games out of the hands of minors. The court is expected to rule on the case this summer, and Bushman hopes the brief will help the justices conclude the law can have a positive impact on society. Violent games are one of many risk factors that contribute to violence and aggression, Bushman said. But most other factors, like poverty and low intellect are difficult to change. “It is a lot easier to change how much people are exposed to violence in the media,” Bushman said. “This is one thing we can do something about.”

student voice At long last, ‘Oval Beach’ has arrived LANTERN Columnist RUBINA KAPIL kapil.5@osu.edu I remember seeing it on Facebook. “38 of your friends like ‘Oval Beach.’” Thinking it was just another dumb Facebook craze, I ignored it. But of course, once again, I am shown to be the naive freshman. On my usual route from class to Thompson Library on Monday, I think I literally walked from Ohio State University to somewhere that couldn’t possibly be a part of Ohio. And yet it was; I walked onto Oval Beach. Everywhere I looked, I saw frisbees flying, dogs running, bikinis, beach chairs, etc. The list goes on. For all the years I’ve lived in Ohio, this was most definitely a first. As expected, I didn’t make it to Thompson. Instead, I found myself studying (aka peoplewatching) for about two hours on Oval Beach. During this

extremely thought-provoking time, I realized something: This might just be one of Ohio State’s most remarkable traditions to date. Thus far, I have been a fan of “O-H” “I-O!” and always claimed that it was, by far, the best aspect of Ohio State’s culture. But Oval Beach has proven to be some serious competition. Although it is nearly impossible to get studying done while on Oval Beach, the experience is worthwhile. You will truly feel as if you have gone on vacation. Not only can you avoid the almosttoo-cold breeze from the ocean and wet sand between your toes from Florida, you can enjoy the company of all 5,000 of your closest friends. People-watch, play football, enjoy a smoothie, take a nap - the possibilities are endless. And to know this is all possible in Ohio is remarkable. For those who have yet to experience basking in the sun at Oval Beach while attempting to study, please do. Ohio doesn’t have as many sunny days as we’d like, so it’s worthwhile to enjoy each one. And to the kid wearing the “Oval Beach Member” shirt on Monday, nice. The shirt, the Facebook page and the tradition are all truly worth supporting.

Moms shouldn’t only be recognized on Mother’s Day LANTERN Columnist DOROTHY POWELL powell.447@osu.edu

I’ve written a lot in the past about holidays and how I dislike the commercialization many of them have suffered lately. Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of all the trappings and trinkets associated with holidays like Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween and Easter (with the sole exception of Cadbury Crème eggs, because those things are ridiculously tasty). I feel like so many holidays have become bogged down with

stuff, so much so that we’ve lost what they really mean. To some extent, I feel the same way about Mother’s Day. In a lot of ways, Mother’s Day for a lot of families, judging by the ads that interrupt my Law and Order SVU marathons, is about “show Mom how much you love her by giving her a better gift than last year.” Now maybe I’m biased, because Mother’s Day was never a big deal in my house growing up. Or maybe I’m biased

because my mom is the most amazing woman I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’m biased because she and I are practically identical in both looks and personality. Whatever the case may be, the thought that I need to show my love for my mother by buying her lots of presents seems insufficient at best. Because love can’t, or at the very least, shouldn’t be shown through material goods. How can a necklace say “thank you for giving birth to me and putting

up with everything I’ve pulled over the last two decades?” How can a gift certificate to a spa say “thank you for helping me through a really rough time?” And how does a new food processor tell the woman that brought you into this world that she means more to you than anyone else? Yes, gifts are great to receive and are especially nice when they make the incredibly hard job of being a mother a little easier. But gifts cannot replace the

sentiments they were meant to express. Mothers so often go unnoticed and unthanked. I know this is a bit late to change how your Mother’s Day went this year, but I’m not sure that matters. Mother’s Day is not the only day of the year when you can tell your mom how much she means to you. Let your mom know why you love her – that’s the best gift you can give anyone.

Wave American flag and support countries in need Letter to the editor In the last week, America has seen an upsurge of patriotism. We, the Ohio State community, have gone out of our way to wave American flags and show our continuous support for democracy, freedom, and justice. Yet, sometimes, when we do not have a reason to celebrate, we have a tendency to take things for granted. We have a democratic government, equal rights and freedom; meanwhile, citizens of other countries live under oppressive dictatorships with restricted rights and often with no political representation for women. In recent months, however, we have seen an unprecedented move by various populations across the Middle East demanding these simple-yet-seemingly fundamental rights. As this transition continues, one nation stands out as a reflection of these tenants: Israel. As the

only democracy in the Middle East, Israel can now help pave the way for other Middle Eastern countries to make smooth transitions into becoming democratic states. Israel struggles to defend its borders from annihilation on a daily basis. In the midst of the smoke, Israel’s government continues to uphold the democratic values of equal rights for all citizens, free elections and representation of all minority groups. Israel is the only Middle Eastern country to have both Jewish women and Muslim women representatives in its government. It is the only nation in the Middle East that supports rights for the LGBT community, and is one of the international leaders of this important right. Now more than ever, we are in a time when the values of

democracy are being demanded; and now more than ever, we, the OSU community, need to show that we truly understand what it means to wave the American flag and continue to show our support for Israel and the shared values it represents. Hopefully, by the guiding hand of countries like America and Israel, these countries will have the opportunity to embrace these fundamental rights that every citizen deserves.

Patriotism about loving people, not just country itself

and for the lack of scientific evidence at the time to state otherwise, racism ruled the biology. That may seem strange now, but when black families attempted to donate, they were told that their blood could not mix with white person’s blood. Yet, black soldiers were giving their lives and could not get adequate care; their patriotism was not valued because of their race. I believe now, as a nation, we are at a new summit in which we PATRICIA CUNNINGHAM can learn to be courageous about cunningham.212@osu.edu justice, equality and humanity. We can learn to agree that all life is valuable and important. There is no need to be arrogant in my citizenship; I have to tap into the global citizenship. When those Freedom Riders boarded buses, most of them had already signed their last will and testimony. That was how strong their patriotism was. They were passionate and committed to community and equality for all people. I think about how I see courage in some of my friends today. If we choose to overcome the little things, that will prepare us for the bigger challenges that lie ahead. My friend Danielle recently donated her hair to Locks of Love in which a wig will be made for a person living with cancer. Her courage to part with all her beautiful hair feeds the courage for a person to fight for their life. Loving one’s country is first achieved by loving its people. We can all demonstrate courage if we make little sacrifices everyday.

LANTERN Columnist

I have heard on repeat that “courage is at the summit of fear.” Sometimes I take baby steps toward courage, but when I think about feats of courage, I cannot help but to think of the Freedom Riders. This past week celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first wave of college students and everyday citizens getting on a bus and going through the South to disrupt the Jim Crow laws that existed to keep life in America separate and unequal. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, the original group of folks who would go to the South were members of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). Their tactics were aimed at desegregating public transportation throughout the South. Testing the Supreme Court case that was started in Virginia, the 13 original Freedom Riders had to press against the hardest of circumstances and tell their mothers, fathers and families that death was a price worth paying to end the embedded racism in American culture and society. I think that for many of us on campus today, we do not understand sacrifice in this way. Sure, some of us have done favors for people or participated in philanthropy, but to believe in something so widely and deeply that it was worth one’s own life is very seldom practiced outside the beautiful service of the military. Patriotism is tried on like a pair of Sperry’s boat shoes, as something that can be celebrated like the same rituals for football games. I think about the white folks on that ride. White people willing to forsake their white privileges at that time to stand in solidarity with black folks who were still being treated as less than human is the kind of love and patriotism that is authentic. To “unravel the truth” of segregation and give access to every person is inviting all people to take part in the American dream. During WWII as black men were serving in the military, the Red Cross would not take blood donations from black people. The point here is that at the time, black people’s blood was considered tainted

OSU investigating used-car purchases; AD lips sealed blake william s Senior Lantern reporter williams.3012@osu.edu More bad news has found the Ohio State athletic program, and administrators aren’t talking. OSU will investigate used-car purchases made by dozens of university athletes at two local car dealerships, The Columbus Dispatch reported Saturday. Though OSU officers refused to speak to The Lantern about the university’s response to the investigations, representatives from other Big Ten schools were open. Gary Bargen, the associate athletic director of compliance at Nebraska, indicated that compliance departments at different universities would handle the situation differently. “Depending upon the circumstances, whether there is specific evidence that would lead one to believe that (violations occurred), it would just be strictly (up to) their compliance department and the personnel as far as how they are going to go about finding that information,” he said. OSU associate athletic director for compliance Doug Archie and athletic director Gene Smith declined to answer questions. OSU’s chief enforcer of NCAA rules and outside experts will examine at least 50 deals made by salesman Aaron Kniffin at Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Auto Direct over the past six years. Representatives at both dealerships were not available for comment. Kniffin and Auto Direct owner Jason Goss

If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again. That goes for former Buckeye safety Jamario O’Neal as he continues his career in the Arena Football League with the San Jose SaberCats. A native of Mansfield, Ohio, O’Neal moved to Cleveland and played his final two years of high school at Glenville High School. O’Neal was the first commitment of the Buckeyes’ 2005 recruiting class. His career at Ohio State, however, never panned out. “I didn’t do the little things and stay on the grind that got me to that point,” O’Neal said. “I had a lot going in my life with school and everything, and I just kind of lost my passion for football.” O’Neal was an All-Ohio team selection his junior and senior years of high school. His senior year garnered him a Parade All-America honor before he came to OSU. Four years later, after splitting time at safety and cornerback with the Buckeyes, O’Neal amassed 49 tackles, one forced fumble, one interception and two passes defended. His recruiting class also included Kansas City Chiefs’ safety Donald Washington, New Orleans Saints’ cornerback Malcolm Jenkins and Washington Redskins’ defensive back Anderson Russell in the secondary with him. “Just thinking about all the times I could’ve done extra films, gassers (and) time in the weight room,

Murdaugh’s heart keeps up with speed Wes wyant Lantern reporter wyant.30@osu.edu Ohio State sprinter Thomas Murdaugh doesn’t let two open-heart surgeries slow him down. “He’s obviously one of the best 400 runners in the country,” said 4-by-400-meter relay teammate Aaron Roberts. “I personally think he’s the best anchor in the country.” Murdaugh tends to be more soft-spoken about his achievements. “It just comes from a lot of hard work, good teammates that have been pushing me since freshman year,” Murdaugh said. “So all that’s been paying off these past few years.” Murdaugh underwent his first heart surgery when he was 1 year old, and then had a second surgery Jan. 3, 2005. “Once I got to high school and started getting into sports,” he said, “my sophomore year they found out I had to have another surgery, so I sat that year out of sports.” Murdaugh since has hit the accelerator and hasn’t looked back. “I don’t really think about it,” he said. “My family and friends, they think about it a lot. But, I mean, that’s something in the past.” His progress impressed coach Robert Gary. “Since he arrived here his freshman year has been a huge, huge surprise,” Gary said. “He wasn’t even a state champion and ended up his freshman year sixth in the country in the 400. He’s brought us back in a million relays.” One of Murdaugh’s most impressive rallies came in the Jesse Owens Classic on April 24. When his team trailed the Venezuelan national team in the third leg of the 4-by-400-meter relay race, Murdaugh didn’t panic. “I know the responsibility being an anchor,” Murdaugh said. “So if we’re not in the front, it’s to get us to the front. If we are, it’s to keep it. I just keep that in my mind and just try not to let my teammates down.” Like Gary expected, Murdaugh pulled through, finishing the race more than two seconds ahead of his competition. “I’ve never seen him lose anything that’s close,” Gary said. At the Jim Click Shootout in early April at Arizona, Murdaugh posted a season-best 400-meter time of 45.81 seconds, a full second faster than his best indoor performance, and just three-hundredths of a second slower than his personal record. Over his career, Murdaugh has remained consistent. “He’s been one of the dominant guys in the Big Ten,” Gary said. “He’s plateaued a little bit. … When you start running that fast, it’s kind of hard to have this huge, linear explosion.”

NFL lockout in full swing; only matter of time before NBA catches up, follows suit SPORTS Columnist

GRANT FREKING freking.4@osu.edu

inten grou tional ndin g

The NBA is changing. For one, there is an imminent lockout. Owners want to find ways to make even more money. Players are quite happy with the current collective-bargaining agreement, and who can blame them for wanting to keep a system that can net Travis Outlaw a four-year, $28 million contract and Amir Johnson $34 million over five years? That’s highway robbery. But the association is also seeing a changing of the guard in terms of its upper echelon of teams. The San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, who have combined to win 10 of the past 12 NBA titles,

are officially in decline. Their championship dreams have been locked out. The No. 1-seeded Spurs were stunned by the upstart No. 8 Memphis Grizzlies in the opening round. The wheels on their Tim-Duncan-Manu-Ginobili-TonyParker machine have significant wear and tear. Rarely are all three healthy at once, and their roster lacks young talent. The Lakers were embarrassed in a four-game sweep at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks. Kobe Bryant, L.A.’s fading superstar, must find away to reinvigorate himself, his team and the organization, especially considering the Lakers’ legendary coach, Phil

Jackson, appears to have paced the sidelines for the last time. Boston’s loss at home to the Heat in Game 4 sealed its fate, as this was its last legitimate shot at another ring. Its bench has been transformed into an infirmary and it, too, probably will lose its title-winning coach, Doc Rivers, after the season. Of course, everything is cyclical in the NBA. Magic’s Lakers and Bird’s Celtics gave way to Isiah’s Pistons, who were eventually topped by Jordan’s Bulls. The Spurs started their run the year after Jordan’s second retirement in 1998, ironically after a lockout shortened the regular season to 50 games.

So, who are the teams next in line to carry the NBA’s mantle? I give you the Miami Heat, the Chicago Bulls and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Heat, spearheaded by their 2 1/2 superstars, will continue to attract other talented teammates to South Beach. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are just hitting their peak years and should be even better in the future, after going through mutual struggles in year one of their grand experiment. Derrick Rose, the MVP, will continue his ascent to stardom and attempt to lead his defensiveminded Bulls back to their former glory, reached under His Airness.

And finally, the Thunder, who not only play as if they love one another but perform in a town that loves them back. The parts are all there for a title run, but one question remains: Can Kevin Durant, the NBA’s scoring champ and the anti-LeBron, coexist with his headstrong, ultra-athletic point guard, Russell Westbrook? Fans may have to wait to see all of this unfold. It’s virtually certain there will be a lockout. Let’s hope it doesn’t last long enough to rob fans of seeing a new era of great basketball teams.

Former buckeye defensive lineman jamario o’Neal returned to the field with the San jose SaberCats following a 2-year break from football.

AFL from 5A

O’Neal spent 2 years off the field before the SaberCats showed interest I had talent but didn’t work hard,” he said. “You had guys like Malcolm and Donald who worked hard and had talent.” After being suspended for the Spring Game and first two games of 2008 for a team violation, O’Neal didn’t make it back into the starting rotation. O’Neal worked out during Pro Day, but no one offered him a contract during the NFL Draft. He spent the next two years out of football, until he got a phone call from his agent in October 2010 regarding the SaberCats and another chance on the field. “I had time to reflect while I was away,” he said. He immediately began to study the team playbook and prepare for the faster pace of the indoor game.

“I was out of football for damned near two years,” he said. “Adjusting to the mental aspect was easy. With the physical aspect, that is something that you have to work on everyday.” After missing the first four games of the season with a strained hamstring, O’Neal had an immediate impact with a forced fumble and recovery in his first game against the Tulsa Talons. “Jamario brought real good enthusiasm,” teammate Mervin Brookins said. “He turns it on when he gets on the field.” In week seven, O’Neal had an interception return for a touchdown in a 68-61 win against the Philadelphia Soul. Since then, he’s had 11.5 tackles, nine of which were solo in three games for the 5-3 SaberCats. Having proved his playing abilities to everyone who said he was a bust, O’Neal is confident when talking about his future after football. “After this: big things. I just need to stay focused,” he said.

both have attended seven football games as player guests in the past. The sales would be in violation of NCAA rules if the players received any benefits or discounts based on their status as OSU athletes. Determining such violations may be difficult given the variability of used car sales. “The OSU compliance office has strong and active monitoring programs for student-athlete vehicle registration that go above and beyond NCAA requirements and are among the most robust in the nation,” Archie said in a statement released Saturday. The Dispatch reported that Kniffin sold cars to former defensive linemen Thaddeus Gibson, Robert Rose and Doug Worthington and former running backs Chris Wells and Maurice Wells. Current wide receiver DeVier Posey and basketball player William Buford were also reported as having made car purchases from Kniffin along with multiple members of current and former players’ families. Student-athletes are permitted to purchase cars and are required by the OSU compliance department to report the make, model and price of the car along with any co-signers, Archie’s statement said. Gibson’s was the most concerning of the purchases. Currently a member of the San Francisco 49ers, Gibson acquired a Chrysler 300 with fewer than 20,000 miles from Auto Direct that was titled to the then-sophomore for $0 according to public records, The Dispatch reported.

Hypnotist Thomas Bresadola had students picking up their lost belly buttons and flying airplanes as a crowd looked on at an event Monday night. The Ohio Union Activities Board hosted Bresadola in the U.S. Bank Conference Theatre at the Ohio Union. Bresadola is widely known for his ability to put participants into a state of hypnosis and then elicit any behavior that he asks for. He has won the Stage Hypnotist of the World award, given out by S.H.O.W. five times. Bresadola said that there are two kinds of people who come to the show: those who believe, and those who don’t. “The audience who comes to see a hypnosis show is a person who believes in hypnosis, and they want to show their friends,” Bresadola said. “Then you have skeptics. They say, ‘Oh, it’s fake. I don’t believe it.’ Ninety-eight percent of the time, the skeptics change their minds.” One of those skeptics was Ryan Monge, a fourth-year in communication, who said prior to the

show he didn’t believe in power of hypnotism and was forced to come by his girlfriend, Mary Smith, a fourth-year in nursing. “If I get picked tonight, I would put on an act like everyone else,” Monge said. “I just don’t believe in that altering state of mind, that some guy can have complete control over you. I think it’s a scam.” Smith said she believed otherwise. “It works. People quit smoking (because of hypnosis), and there are studies that prove it,” Smith said. The show began with Bresadola explaining the six stages of hypnosis, of which the participants would only experience the first three. In the first three stages, participants are susceptible to suggestions from Bresadola and feel no pain, although no one was put in the position to get hurt. The last three stages are reserved for therapeutic purposes. When volunteers were asked to come to the stage, students from the audience rushed to the open chairs, but only 15 were allowed to participate. Bresadola relaxed the participants by asking them to visualize various scenarios such as walking through caves. Each scenario was meant to put the participants in a deeper sleep. After counting down from seven to one and snapping his fingers, most of the participants should have been in a state of hypnosis.

“He was describing a scene to us, and then I just kind of zoned out. I think some people got hypnotized, but it wasn’t me,” Holbrook said. Several participants left the stage, not feeling the effects of the state, but more than half remained in their chairs taking Bresadola’s commands. Audience members were bent over in their seats laughing as they watched participants fly airplanes, cheer on horse races, pick up their belly buttons as they rolled on the floor, win bingo and fall in love with strangers, among other scenarios. The night ended with Bresadola waking the participants up, but not without giving them a few more tasks. Bresadola taught each participant a trick to help them focus on their homework more productively, which would last long after the show, he said. Participant Charles Holbrook, a second-year in philosophy, said he didn’t remember anything after Bresadola took them through the caves and the sand, but he didn’t believe he was hypnotized. Smith recorded Holbrook flying a plane and doing the robot. Monge said his beliefs changed by the end. “I believe now,” he said. “You can see all the commands that he gives to everybody, and they actually follow through. It’s pretty wild.”

Cancer patients and survivors are expressing themselves through the healing powers of art. Their works will be displayed and up for auction today from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. in Room 518 of the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. This is the fifth annual gallery hop that the James Nursing Magnet Council will host. Proceeds from the silent auction

of the art will be split evenly between the James nursing scholarship and a community outreach program, said Joyce Schlatter, OSU Medical Center staff nurse and gallery co-chair. “Most people who donate are in some way affiliated with OSUMC, but (others are) not all,” she said. Those with the closest ties to the hospital are the artists who are a part of the Healing through Art classes available through the JamesCare for Life (JCFL) survivorship programming. “Participants in this inpatient as well as outpatient program will have their artwork on display, but not up for auction because the pieces display their journey through survivorship and

are very meaningful to them,” said Anne Harding, JCFL specialist and art therapist. This is the second year that the JCFL Healing through Art program has contributed to the gallery hop, Harding said. Community members not directly affiliated with OSUMC like to get involved with the gallery hop as well. Melonie Jurcevic, a digital production assistant for The Columbus Dispatch, created two original pieces. Jurcevic has multiple family members who have dealt with cancer, but her aunt sticks out to her the most. “One of my first memories of her

is in a bandana,” Jurcevic said. “It sounds crazy, but she used to wear these gorgeous, colorful bandannas, and as a child, that’s what I remembered most. One of my paintings is of a woman. Like my aunt, her journey is illustrated through her bandana.” Her second piece illustrates the general fight against cancer. In this painting, a thick, black background envelops a pink ribbon. Light peeks through behind the ribbon. “When everything else is surrounded by darkness, the light is a sign of hope,” Jurcevic said. All of the artists’ pieces can be seen at the James Gallery Hop, located at 300 W. 10th Avenue.

arts&life ‘Bridesmaids’ a rare film which empowers women ARTS Columnist GRACE ELLiS ellis.489@osu.edu

Courtesy of MCT

Kristen Wiig (left), Rose Byrne (middle) and Maya Rudolph (right) appear in ‘Bridesmaids,’ opening Friday.

In preparation for a looming marriage, a diverse group of wacky characters travel to Las Vegas and raise hell. Even though “Bridesmaids” may sound like a woman’s answer to “The Hangover,” its importance extends beyond that.

“Bridesmaids” is a women’s ensemble comedy that exists in its own sphere. It’s not a romantic comedy, a Lifetime original movie or “Showgirls.” The plot doesn’t center on men in any way. It has, dare I say it, three-dimensional characters. It’s essentially a women’s version of a bromance — a sis-mance, if you will. The relationship statuses of the bridesmaids are important but they exist outside of trying to find Prince Charming. Women are often relegated to flimsy, overly sexual roles in movies because Hollywood caters to a young, straight male audience, as many directors and writers are young, straight men. So when a woman comes along who writes a movie that is legitimately funny, it deserves at

least a small amount of attention. The loud and obnoxious comedy-style format in “Bridesmaids” has proven to be successful before, with films like “The Hangover.” They’re not intelligent films. They’re just funny. They also have almost no women. Men outnumber women in speaking roles 2-to-1 and are more likely to appear naked, according to a recent study at the University of Southern California. That doesn’t sound funny to me. I’m not asking to be empowered. I’m asking for some wellrounded characters. “Bridesmaids” may or may not be that movie. Regardless, it deserves at least some praise. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to the kitchen.

Doctor behind ‘House’ mysteries speaks to students ERiN MYERS Lantern reporter myers.1207@osu.edu She isn’t Dr. Gregory House, but she is the inspiration for his show. Dr. Lisa Sanders spoke about her monthly “Diagnosis” column Monday night at the Ohio Union. The column runs in The New York Times Magazine and was the inspiration for “House,” the hit TV show on Fox. Sanders began writing the column in 2002. In her column, she presents readers with the details of a patient’s medical history and allows them to take a shot at the diagnosis. As technical adviser to

2B

“House,” Sanders’ job is to come up with the diseases the patients have and read the scripts to make sure they are as accurate as possible. “I learned very early on that every ‘House’ episode has six beats or ‘badnesses’ that have to happen between the time the patient comes in and the time the patient gets a diagnosis or dies,” Sanders said. “And they have to be medical beats so what I love is putting together that story.” In her lecture, Sanders emphasized the importance of the communication between doctor and patient. “Every doctor and patient story is a tiny detective story,” Sanders said. In her book, “Every Patient

dr. Lisa Sanders Tells a Story,” Sanders discusses the process of making a diagnosis through the stories that patients tell. “Only since 2004 have

medical programs taught students how to relate and properly take information from patients, so it is likely if your physician has a few gray hairs he didn’t go through that training,” Sanders said. A diagnosis is made from a patient’s history 76 percent of the time, Sanders said. “Giving the patient a chance to talk, even when it takes a little time, turns out to be useful,” she said. Maryanna Klatt, Ohio State assistant professor in allied and family medicine, agrees. “Through her stories students can see how important it is to talk to the patient and listen to the patient,” she said. Klatt uses Sanders’ book in

her course titled “The Evolving Art and Science of Medicine,” which is part of a minor in integrated approaches to health and wellness. “She put warmth and a face on the stories she told in the book and I think she really brought the textbook to life,” Klatt said. Jennifer Wittwer, a fourthyear in chemistry and molecular genetics, said Sanders gave her a new perspective on diagnosis. “(Sanders’ lecture) certainly influenced the way I want to practice and treat patients in the future,” she said. “I will put extra emphasis on listening to patients’ concerns and work with them to help them understand their diagnosis.”

Yiheng Hu, a third-year graduate student in biological science, said she is aware of the importance of the relationship between doctor and patient. “I’ve been told in medical school about communication with patients, and we have a class specifically about this subject,” Hu said. “Teachers think this is the most important class before we get into real clinics.” In addition to time at the hospital and her work with “House,” Sanders is currently researching the nutritional aspect of obesity as well as clinical decision making and the way diagnostic decisions and errors are made.

arts&life Local dance troupe looking for expansion The Annadroids, a dance troupe originating from Columbus, is looking to expand across the country KRiSTEN LOTT Lantern reporter lott.57@osu.edu Hidden under a colored wig, white face makeup, bright blue eyelashes and pouty red lipstick is Anna Sullivan. Dressed up like a doll, she expresses herself through robotic dance themes that explore the human condition. Performers surround her in matching costumes, ranging from tutus to fishnets. These women are like identical clones, or in this case, droids — Annadroids. Anna and the Annadroids is the Columbus dance troupe that embodies futuristic themes to satirically expose modern pop culture, Sullivan said. As artistic director, choreographer and dancer, Sullivan created this group, which performs at public and private events with an average of five Annadroids, depending on the show. But now, the group is branching across the nation. Sullivan moved to Santa Cruz, Calif., last month to pursue a solo career and tour, but said she is expanding the troupe by setting up “pods” of Annadroids around the country. Annadroids Megan Lynch and Tina Tidwell will be starting pods in Columbus and Tampa, Fla., respectively, while Sullivan said she plans to create a group in the San Francisco area. The Columbus community has helped promote the group beyond simply attending shows. The Greater Columbus Arts Council funded their 2007 “Anna and the Annadroids: Clone Zone” show in the 10th annual New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC). The council also granted the performance the Artistic Excellence award in 2008, a prize of $10,000. “Anna and the Annadroids’ performances are full of multiple types of art,” Sullivan said. A typical performance includes dance, video, electronic music and unusual costume, she said. “We really try to make bizarre costumes that are futuristic high-fashioned,” Sullivan said. Evident from the painted faces and robotic movements of the Annadroids, Sullivan said dolls have always been an inspiration to her work. “I grew up literally building Barbie colonies on my parents’ front porch,” she said. From the time she was creating fantasy worlds with Barbie dolls, Sullivan said she was beginning to create the same type of world, but with dancers.

This unique realm arose from her own interpretation of reality taken to the extreme. Sullivan said Anna and the Annadroids’ performances are similar to fantasy and science fiction films because the characters can be scary, sexy or creepy. “The Return to Oz,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Gremlins” and other 1980s flims have inspired her work. “There are these kind of beautiful creatures, but they’re dark and twisted,” Sullivan said. “All of these elements bled into what the Annadroids are.” The group’s theatrical performances have underlying story lines, which typically address robotic conformity and superficiality, she said. “We call that psycho-cybernetic satire,” Sullivan said. “Our shows are very satirical, but they’re not always funny. A lot of times they’re actually dark but in a playful way.” After graduating from Ohio University in 2003, Sullivan spent a year working with a dance company but said she couldn’t ignore the drive to develop her own art. “Being a part of a group where I was just dancing, just wasn’t fulfilling for me,” she said. “I wanted to be making the work because I feel like I have a lot to say.” In 2004, Sullivan created the dance group Anatomical Scenario, which later evolved into the group today. The current name came from the title of Sullivan’s third evening-length show, “Anna and the Annadroids: Robots’ Dream Tour,” which debuted at the 10th annual FringeNYC in 2006. After this performance, Columbus started recognizing the group by the Annadroid name, which seemed to stick, Sullivan said. Jessica Berick, a 2007 Ohio State alumna and Annadroid, said she was introduced to the group through Lynch, who was a mutual friend to Sullivan. After seeing them perform, Berick said her immediate reaction was “Oh my gosh I have to do this.” With 15 years of dance training founded in ballet and tap, she said the first show she attended was extremely different from anything she had ever seen. Berick described Anna and the Annadroids in three words: “electronic robot burlesque.” She first performed with Anna and the Annadroids in 2009 during Trauma, a Halloween fetish party held annually in downtown Columbus. “(An Annadroids show is) an awesome

Anna Sullivan performs at her solo show, ‘Plastic Pleasures,’ as an Annadroid last year. performance art piece … with the deeper meaning and all the satire, but the wow factor is always the most fun,” she said. Bebe Miller, an arts and humanities professor at Ohio State and artistic director of Bebe Miller Company, said she had seen Anna and the Annadroids perform a few years ago. “(The Annadroids’ performance) is a wonderful idiosyncratic aesthetic,” she said. “I’m all for contemporary dance in Columbus.” Annadroid art is now taking a new form in California while still retaining original elements from previous dance performances. Sullivan said she is currently working on her solo project, “Anna and the Annadroids: Memoirs of a Robot Girl,” which she will unveil at the 15th annual FringeNYC this August. The show will draw from previous solo pieces to create a new story line, one that will have an accompanying graphic novel, Sullivan said.

After touring her solo show up and down the West Coast, she said she plans to move to Los Angeles and create another pod of Annadroids.
