Student loans skyrocket
With graduation day less than a month away, many Ohio State students are looking toward the future. But what used to be a periodic reminder of student loan debt in the form of monthly statements and a bleeding bank account, has been a constant political issue, almost impossible to avoid. Student loan debt has surpassed the $1 trillion mark, and President Barack Obama and Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney have campaigned to keep student loan interest rates low, bringing student loan debt to the political forefront. The first attempt to freeze federal interest rates for student loans at 3.4 percent was shot down in U.S. Senate May 8. Federal student interest rates are still set to reach 6.8 percent if Congress takes no further action until July 1. Senate Republicans overpowered a Democratic proposal to end a tax break for the wealthy to keep the student loan interest rates down. However, Republicans want to avoid raising the rate on the loans. They have said the money should be brought

About 150,000 black Crayola crayons were used to sculpt the lifesized statue of Johnny Cash that sits in President E. Gordon Gee’s Bexley home, and it was put together one piece at a time. “I knew Johnny Cash,” Gee said during his April 23 meeting with The Lantern. “I’m a great fan of country Lantern music and when he died, I was very sad.” Cash, a country music legend who was born in 1932, was based in Nashville, where Gee was chancellor at Vanderbilt University from 2000-2007. Cash died in Baptist Hospital in Nashville due to diabetes complications in 2003, but Gee said he met Cash, often referred to as The Man in Black, before he moved to Tennessee. “I actually saw him one time before I moved to Nashville and got to know him a little bit,” Gee said. “I actually saw him in an airport wearing a big, long, black coat and a big, black hat and he was a caricature of himself. And he was a big man. I mean, he’s quite a big man.” Cash was about 6 feet 2 inches tall, and the statue in Gee’s house measures the same. And attaining this one-toone ratio with crayons was one of the hardest parts about sculpting Cash for artist Herb Williams, based in Nashville.

“It was very difficult to get a likeness being a one-to-one ratio,” Williams said. “To get real likeness and to tell that it’s Johnny, I had to rely on the stance.” The Cash statue is holding its guitar in almost the exact stance the real Cash used to hold his instrument. “Johnny Cash played the Martin, played a big Martin, which is a larger guitar,” Gee said. “But he did that on stage, and you know he held it high, which is very interesting, he had a very, very familiar style.” And almost everyone who sees the sculpture says the artist did Cash’s recognizable stance justice. “I just watched ‘Walk The Line’ last weekend for like, the third time, and the way he’s holding the guitar is very accurate,” said Stacy Gabrielle, Crayola spokeswoman. “Walk The Line” is a 2005 biographical film of Cash’s life. Although the statue is like Cash in height and stance, they differ in weight. Williams said the sculpture, which took about six months to complete, weighs about 350 pounds. The statue has a fiberglass underbody and wheels to make it more moveable. “When you have that many crayons, it becomes almost impossible to move,” Williams said. “It took a long time and I worked with several different assistants to work with the form. … It was a labor of love.” Gee said he uses the wheels

The Science and Engineering Library is changing its name to be more inclusive of all students.
In a matter of months, the Science and Engineering Library at Ohio State will not exist — at least not by that name. The contents of the SEL has changed with the times, and University Libraries director Carol Diedrichs said its name no longer fits accurately. “We don’t think the science and engineering name is very reflective of all of the people who use the building and the collections,” Diedrichs said. The Music and Dance Library that was once housed in Sullivant Hall was relocated to the SEL during summer 2011. The library also features the Terra Byte Café and the Digital Union, with computers available to all students. Anyone interested in the SEL’s name change could submit an idea through the University Libraries’ website, which features a place to enter ideas for the library’s new name. University Libraries’ communications coordinator, Larry Allen, said the
last opportunity to submit a name for the SEL online was Saturday evening. Diedrichs said the goal of opening up the name change to the public was to generate as many good ideas as possible, as well as to make students aware of the change. “One of the reasons we opened it up to students now is that if we pick a new name and implement it in the fall, that you don’t suddenly come back being like, ‘Oh what happened over the summer?’” Diedrichs said. As of Friday morning, Diedrichs said about 1,500 webpage forms had been submitted, although that might not warrant 1,500 unique ideas. She said some want the name to remain, some have used the idea submission form to submit funny ideas and some have been serious suggestions. “I think the only (unusual) things we’ve seen are occasionally naming it after a movie character or something, and people saying some funny stuff, but clearly some people have given some thought to a lot of the (submissions) we’ve gotten,” Allen said.

campus Journalist shares immigration story Grace Herbener For The Lantern email@example.com
“I believe America is worth fighting for.” Words that would normally be disregarded as generic campaign rhetoric from a politician or speaker stand out coming from the mouth of an undocumented immigrant. Jose Antonio Vargas ended his keynote address on illegal immigration with those seven words. Vargas spoke at an Ohio State’s COMPAS (Conversations on Morality, Politics, and Society) conference, a project for OSU’s Center for Ethics and Human Values. Thursday’s conference in Drinko Hall was called “Immigration: Moving Forward.” Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for his coverage of the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings in which 32 people were killed, spoke of the discovery and public disclosure of his status as an undocumented immigrant, while he examined the issue of immigration as a whole. “(Illegal immigration) is always a controversial topic, especially during an election year,” Vargas said. Vargas discussed Arizona’s laws that require immigrants to show proof of their legality, and Alabama laws under which students in schools must do the same. He brought these issues to life with several videos featuring an undocumented college student, an Alabama teacher and the wife of a policeman shot by an illegal immigrant. He also gave statistics about immigrants and the growing minority population, which make up one-third of the United States today. “It will only get browner and more Asian,” Vargas said, to which the audience laughed. Vargas related these issues to past immigration and racial discrimination, including the forced migration of Native Americans and the segregation of blacks and whites before the Civil Rights movement.

Jose Antonio Vargas visited OSU to give a speech for the COMPAS project. He discussed his life as an undocumented immigrant, originally from the Philippines. “Defining what America looks like has been a problem since it started,” he said. Vargas said he recently visited Ellis Island, where more than 12 million immigrants were once welcomed to America in the late 1800s and early 1900s. “Now we’re talking about another 12 million undocumented immigrants,” he said. Vargas unknowingly became an illegal immigrant himself when he moved from the Philippines at age 12. After learning of his status, he did not “come out” until age 30 when he released the 2011 essay, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant,” in “New York Times Magazine.” “I couldn’t keep lying anymore,” Vargas said. The essay was received with worldwide attention and soon Vargas was on NPR. He discussed his interview, in which Mark Krikorian, an anti-immigration activist and executive director for the Center for Immigration
Studies, told Vargas he should go back to the Philippines. Vargas then spoke directly to Krikorian, who was present at the conference. “This is my home,” he said. In the following Q-and-A session, Krikorian and Vargas entered a debate, particularly about whether the U.S. should enforce a limit on the number of immigrants allowed. Vargas then read aloud a tweet posted by Krikorian, which said Vargas was on an “illegal immigration tour.” Audience member Katie Connolly, a firstyear in environmental policy and decision making, said the interaction was tense. “I think it made the problem seem more real,” Connolly said. “But it was definitely uncomfortable.” Other questions were posed by members of COMPAS about what actions to take to fight for undocumented immigrants. “Tell them to come out,” Vargas said.
Physics Group’s laser focuses on cancer Allie Janneck Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org With recent advancements, a group at OSU is taking a commonly known device and with laser focus, using it to fight cancer and utilize fusion. The High Energy Density Physics Group at OSU in the Department of Physics has been upgrading their previous 40-terawatt laser to have the extreme power of 500 terawatts. Enam Chowdhury, the senior research associate and laser designer, said the world’s power grid is about 20 terawatts and this laser packs a lot more power than that. “This laser generates (energy) for a very, very short time; when we talk about an ultrafast time scale, 500 terawatts,” Chowdhury said. “So it’s like roughly around 20 to 50 times that of the world’s whole power grid, but you don’t see a blackout in Columbus, right?” Chowdhury said the reason there won’t be a power surge is because it is a short pulse laser, meaning the energy is generated for a short period of time. “It’s such a small time scale that we talk about if the laser pulse was one second of our time, we would be older than the age of the universe,” Chowdhury said. “It allows us to study these extreme conditions, which will be used in laser fusion up at the National Ignition Facility.” The overall goal is to study extreme states of matter, which includes studying fusion. Fusion reactions occur in the sun. The laser will not generate that much energy, but it will be close to the amount that are in stars and planets. Rebecca Daskalova, a research associate, said the amount of time is 30 femtoseconds, Fit Ad_5.5x5.pdf 1 4/30/12 12:14 which is 30 quadrillionths of a second.
“Think about the amount of time it takes you to blink,” Daskalova said. “It’s 13 orders of magnitude shorter.” The laser is fired through a maze of contraptions of sapphire crystals, prisms, compressors and other devices. The laser is compressed through a chirped pulse amplification system. Once compressed, it will enter the target chamber where it will be focused through a laser/matter interaction.

The High Energy Density Physics Group at OSU works on its high-energy laser. They expect to compress the beam during their “first light” Tuesday, but the official public “first light” will be sometime in June. “We’re always excited about it, but if we were just to fire the laser in there right now, it really wouldn’t do anything that you would be able to see and be like, ‘Oh, that’s amazing!’” Daskalova said. “So we want to set something up so that it actually is visually awesome.” There are about 40 people involved who work under Richard Freeman, professor of PM physics and team leader, and everyone plays
a role, including undergraduates. They are not tasked with cleanup, but with the production and stability of the laser. Danielle Kelly, a fourth-year in engineering physics, said she is hopeful about this laser because of the amazing things it can do for research with cancer from proton therapy. “What lasers can do is that they can accelerate protons to very high energies,” Kelly said. “Basically the way protons distribute energy, as opposed to X-rays, they can deposit a lot less energy before and after at the designated area of the tumor.” The laser generates protons, and if they are focused down, they could be yielded to cure cancer with them. Protons could be used to go after diseased tissue cells and this could mean wonders for this type of research. These larger experiments will be worked on after they test the laser with plain copper targets, which are just small pieces of metal. Though the laser will possibly benefit society, there are certain precautions to take while handling the laser. Daskalova said she doesn’t wear any jewelry because if she is aligning the laser, it could reflect off her ring and hurt someone or herself. The laser is a Class 4 laser, which is the most dangerous type of laser. Jim Krygier, the project coordinator, said the laser will “obliterate” whatever it hits. “So that’s what we ultimately do,” Krygier said. “You end up in this last little chamber here and you’re going to put a piece of material in there, whether it’s metal or something else. Then you’re going to hit it, and then you’re going to study the physics of what happened. … The target is no longer there though.” For the rest of this article and more, visit TheLantern.com/campus.
Aly Mizesko Lantern reporter email@example.com Ohio State students raced against the clock, pulling sleds, flipping tires and sprinting toward the finish so they could be named the fittest of them all in the 2012 Most Fit Buckeye Competition. The Exercise Science Club began the competition last year to emphasize the importance of overall fitness by incorporating different fitness tests into one “crazy obstacle course,” said Gina Verhoff, president of the Exercise Science Club and a third-year in health science education. “We have a lot of people who are really good at running, and then we have the opposite end of the spectrum where people want to lift, but there was no competition that incorporated it all,” she said. The obstacle course, set up in Coffey Road Park, included fitness tests such as mid-distance running, sprinting, weighted sled pulling, tractor tire flipping, going under limbo poles, vertical hurdle jumping, a mental ability test and lifting, among other challenges. “Basically, it’s the most intense 15 minutes of your life,” Verhoff said. Justin Agler, a first-year in civil engineering, said he hoped his experience in distance running would prepare him for the physical demand of the obstacle course Saturday. “I thought I was doing alright,” he said. “It gets harder and harder as you go along because you’re getting more fatigued.” Emily Baas, a first-year in microbiology, had confidence in her fitness level as well. She was on the OSU rowing team for the past two quarters and is a marathon-runner. As a freshman, though, she said she was just hoping to do her best. “As long as I don’t stop, I’ll be happy,” Baas said before her heat went through the course. “I figure I’ll have won it at least once by the time I graduate.” Although she, like Agler, did not finish in the top four of the men and women’s divisions, Baas said she had fun and would do the competition again next year. Out of the almost 70 competitors, the title of Most Fit Buckeyes went to Nina Passen and Tony Ward, a fifth-year in human development and family science, with times of 15:17 and 12:59, respectively. “I just love working out. Five or six days a week, at least,” said Passen, a second-year in pharmaceutical sciences. “This accomplishment feels great after retiring from Ohio State field hockey. … I’ll be back (to compete) next year.” Ward is the repeat champion of the competition, and Ben Van Treese, a fourth-year in human nutrition, is the repeat runner-up. This year, he completed the course with a time of 13:02. “For the second year (of training for the competition), I did a bunch of 800-meter runs, then 50 squats, lunges, pushups, for three miles,” Van Treese said. “I tried to simulate (the course) the best I could.” The obstacle course also required a mental toughness to complement the physical difficulty. Van Treese said he mentally prepared by trying to beat his time in previous workouts. “If you can beat yourself after a full effort, then you know you are mentally prepared,” he said. Last year’s competition proceeds benefited Pelotonia, a grassroots bicycle ride that benefits the James Cancer Hospital. But this year, the Exercise Science Club wanted to help students within the exercise sciences major by establishing a scholarship fund. This fund will help undergraduates have more opportunities to do research within their field. “It is tough as an undergraduate to begin your own research, so we want to be able to give back to our own department … and help fellow club members,” Verhoff said. Last year, the competition cost about $2,000 to put on, most expenses going toward purchasing the equipment, Verhoff said. This year, the competition had numerous sponsors, including FrontRunner and the Ohio Fit Club, lowering the overall cost of the event to about $600. “It’s only in its second year, but we can already tell there’s a big difference between last year and this year,” Verhoff said. “Just the simple fact we have our website for people to sign up on, that’s a big difference for this year that we didn’t have last year.” Verhoff said the biggest goal the club had for the competition this year was to emphasize physical fitness overall, rather than the competition aspect of the event. “Just do it to do it, not to necessarily win,” she said. “You don’t have to exercise to lose weight. You can just do it because you enjoy doing it, and all the other health benefits that you gain for it.”

Cash from 1A whenever his grandkids come over for a visit for fear of them breaking it. “When I have my grandchildren come, I wheel it into the bathroom and lock the door because you can imagine it.” Gee said. “I would be absolutely hysteric.” Gee said he doesn’t maintain the room that houses the sculpture at a specific temperature, he just keeps it out of direct sunlight. And Williams said he tells most of his clients that rather than keeping his sculptures in a rusty cage, they should display them, but with caution. “You treat it like you would any other work of art,” he said. “You put it in your front window, it’ll fade.” Williams, who at the time was very interested in doing iconic figures, said he was surprised he had never thought of sculpting Cash before and was glad Gee had asked him to do it. Gee said that although when some people first see the statue, they mistake Cash for Elvis Presley, almost everyone who sees it is impressed. “It’s a wonderful piece. A lot of people envy the fact that I have it,” Gee said. “I promised (Williams) and he promised me that he’d only make one of them, so it has not been replicated.” Bill Miller, who was friends with the statue’s inspiration for more than 40 years and co-founded JohnnyCash.com with Cash, said he thinks even the legend himself would’ve been impressed. “I think he would’ve been wide-eyed and said, ‘Get outta here, lemme see this,’” Miller said. “Frankly, he would’ve been amused that 150,000 crayons now composed the likeness of him.” James Larcus, a third-year in sport and leisure studies who works as a presidential host at events at Gee’s Bexley home, said the sculpture is always a conversation piece for Gee’s guests. “This past Tuesday, I was working an event and there was a little down time before it started and I was talking to some guests,” Larcus said. “They thought it was really cool because it’s made out of straight crayons.”

health affairs and international studies, said he can only attend OSU because of federal loans. “Senate Republicans need to change their tune today,” Macek said. “It’s unbelievable that they’re putting me, my friends and the rest of my peers at risk by blocking such measures as the one that was blocked just the other day.” Obama visited OSU’s campus on May 5 to officially kick off his 2012 re-election campaign. Romney took a visit to central Ohio about a week before, speaking to a group of students at Otterbein University April 27 about the economy and student loan debt. Niraj Antani, communication director for College Republicans, said he thinks the issue is very important to OSU students. “A student loan interest rate hike would be severely detrimental to Ohio State students,” Antani said. “That’s why the House Republicans and Gov. Romney have proposed to keep it at the current rate by eliminating a slush fund in Obamacare.” Mallory Kimble, president of OSU College Democrats, said students should be wary of Romney’s position to keep student interest rates low due to his support of the Ryan Budget, or the spending plan from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), that

Some students, like Tyler Sink, a second-year in business marketing, said they don’t see the reason for the name change. “I would just keep it the same, because I don’t think it’s necessary to change it,” Sink said. “I do think it’s a good idea to open up the opportunity to give suggestions to students though, why not?” Diedrichs said some suggestions attempt to keep the letters “SEL” to save confusion and eliminate some reworking of university systems that use the acronym. Social news website Reddit featured a posting on its OSU page about the SEL name change, and there were about 50 comments on the post with suggestions. Over the summer, faculty will vote on some of the ideas gathered from the web submissions, as well as staff submissions, and the SEL will have a new name in the fall.
changes the structure of Medicare and rewrites the tax code, among other things. “(Romney) should show leadership by calling on congressional leaders like Speaker (John) Boehner and Rep. Paul Ryan to support the president’s proposal,” Kimble said. “Because the only thing standing in the way of young people being able to afford college is the Republican Congress.” According to the White House website, the increase in interest on federal student loans will affect about 7 million students nationwide and cost each student an additional $1,000 over the lifetime of their loans. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that it would cost close to $6 billion for one year to extend the low interest rates. Nathaniel Swigger, an OSU political sciences professor, said he is not surprised that both candidates are campaigning for the issue. “Mostly, this seems like a pretty reasonable, non-partisan issue for both candidates,” Swigger said. “Student loans poll pretty well and making college affordable polls very well.” Kal Penn, an associate director of the White House office of public engagement, said time is running out for U.S. lawmakers. “As you can see, the clock is ticking,” Penn said. “We need to take action and take action before July 1.”
Gee commissioned Williams to build the statue for him four or five years ago and said he bought the crayons himself. Although neither Gee nor Williams could give an exact cost of the statue, Williams said he usually did projects for about $60,000-$75,000, including the cost of crayons. Williams said he goes through a few million crayons a year, although he recycles a lot of them and works with charities to donate some of them to schools. He is one of the only individuals who has an account with Crayola. “In order to have a direct account with Crayola, you have to buy a very large quantity of product,” Gabrielle said. “We sell direct to Herb because he buys in such large quantities. … He goes through millions of crayons, many more than we would go through in our lifetime.” Typically, Williams buys 50-pound cases of 3,000 crayons of a single color. He said 30,000 to 50,000 crayons cost a few thousand dollars. Williams said he has been doing crayon sculptures since 2002 and Gabrielle said he’s had an account for several years. Although he wants to remain independent, he said he chose to use Crayola over other brands because he likes the crayon’s quality, smell and authenticity. “If I were to make my own, it wouldn’t have the same association,” he said. Miller said the authenticity and uniqueness of this statue are what Cash would’ve loved about it and what will help keep his memory alive. “This would definitely be the most unusual piece ever created in his honor, that’s for sure. I don’t even have to reach back into the archives of my brain for that,” Miller said. “Things like these are what help keep Johnny Cash fresh in the minds of the general public.” He said he hopes this life-size tribute will do just that. “You know, these guys, because of who they are tend to be bigger than life, but in person, they’re very interesting people, and kind people,” Gee said. “Some of them not so kind, but Johnny Cash, I think, was a unique American singer.”
Along with the SEL’s name change, the library is going through a three-phase project to refresh the building. Part of the project, like the relocation of the Music and Dance Library collections as well as new carpet throughout, is finished. Two other phases, which include replacing the furniture and bringing in an architect to attempt to fix some of the traffic issues on the first floor, will add to the building’s facelift.

The Buckeyes (30-22, 11-10) beat Seattle University (22-24) 7-2 in a Mother’s Day matchup that also coincided with the baseball team’s Senior Day. OSU won the third game of the series, taking two of three from Seattle in the first games between the two programs. The Buckeyes outhit Seattle, 11-5, and scored three of their seven runs in the first inning. Coach Greg Beals said he knew it was going to be a special day and was pleased with the team’s performance. “We had our captain’s breakfast beforehand with previous captains here on a special day for the Ohio State baseball program,” Beals said. “I like the fact we won the series. I was pleased with how our players responded today and took care of business.” Greg Solomon, OSU junior catcher, said the win was big for the team. “We had a fire under us and had to show (Seattle) who we really are,” Solomon said after Sunday’s win. “To come away with a non-conference win just to get us jump-started going into the Indiana series next weekend is going to be really good. It’s good for the team and good for everyone knowing we’re pumped and ready to get going.” Three of the four seniors on the
roster played for OSU Sunday on its Senior Day. Senior outfielder David Corna, senior pitcher Andrew Armstrong and senior first baseman Brad Hutton were each brought out of the game one at a time in the ninth inning. Beals said he did this to honor the seniors. “Those guys are our seniors and they’ve been here for five years. They’re Buckeyes and have been Buckeyes longer than I have,” Beals said, “so I wanted to give them a little special recognition today.” Corna said he wasn’t expecting Beals to pay tribute to him and his classmates in that way. “I didn’t expect it until I saw (Beals) take the other seniors out earlier in the inning,” Corna said. “It was cool to soak in that last moment coming off the field.” The lone senior who didn’t play was pitcher Paul Geuy. The Buckeyes lost game two of the three-game set 11-1 to the Redhawks. OSU pitching allowed 17 hits and six walks in the loss Saturday. Beals said the game was one where the team didn’t show up. “Coach wasn’t real happy after that ballgame,” Beals said. “I didn’t feel like we showed up to play with the intensity and effort Buckeye nation deserves from us and I let our guys know that.” The 11 runs Seattle scored Saturday were its season high. The Redhawks were led by freshman catcher Brian Olson, who went five for six with two doubles, one RBI and two runs scored. The five hits for Olson are the most by a Seattle player since the program returned to Division I baseball in 2010.

OSU sophomore pitcher Jaron Long delivers a pitch during the 5th inning of a May 11 game against Seattle University at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1. The Buckeyes won, 4-1, Friday and were led by freshman outfielder Patrick Porter, who was three for four with one RBI and a run scored. Sophomore pitcher Jaron Long, who was the winning pitcher for OSU, said a diving catch Porter made in the game was one of the best he’s seen. “We’re hoping we can get that catch on SportsCenter,” Long said. “It was an unbelievable catch. Between that, hitting and a relay throw he had from the outfield, Pat’s doing it all out there.” Junior shortstop Kirby Pellant said the team practices making tough catches like the one Porter made. “Every day at practice we’re
serious for most of it and then practice making those tough plays for the last five minutes,” Pellant said. “We call them Omar Vizquel plays in the infield and Ken Griffey plays in the outfield.” After the weekend series with Seattle, the Buckeyes’ Big Ten record remains at 11-10. OSU began Sunday in sixth place in the Big Ten and needs to finish in sixth or better to qualify for the Big Ten tournament at Huntington Park in Columbus, Ohio. The Buckeyes next game is home on Tuesday at 12:05 p.m. against Toledo. OSU finishes its season with a road series at Indiana beginning May 17.
Men’s tennis rides NCAA Tournament triumphs to Sweet 16 Justine Boggs Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org The Ohio State men’s tennis team didn’t drop a single match in the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16. OSU, which hosted NCAA Tournament action for the seventh consecutive season, used the home-court advantage to their benefit and defeated East Tennessee State, 4-0, and Notre Dame, 4-0, in the first and second rounds. OSU redshirt sophomore Peter Kobelt and junior Connor Smith won the first match of the afternoon with an 8-4 doubles match win against Notre Dame sophomore Billy Pecor and senior Sam Keeton. The Buckeye duo of Kobelt and Smith is 26-5 in the current campaign. Senior Chase Buchanan and sophomore Blaz Rola, the nation’s top-ranked doubles duo, won their first match of the postseason and 30th of the season after in an 8-3 victory against senior Niall Fitzgerald and senior Casey Watt. Rola also earned a team-high 32nd singles victory en route to winning the fourth point of the match and clutched the OSU win. Rola, ranked ninth nationally, beat the Fighting Irish’s sophomore Greg Andrews (No. 54) 7-5, 6-3. Buchanan carried the doubles success to the singles competition as well. The co-captain downed Watt, 6-3, 6-2, to push the Buckeye lead to 2-0. Buchanan, ranked

Women’s track dashes to 2nd consecutive Big Ten championship Dan Hope Lantern reporter email@example.com The Ohio State women’s track and field team won their conference championship for the second year in a row Sunday, successfully defending their title at the 2012 Big Ten Outdoor Championships. The championships were held in Madison, Wis., Friday, Saturday and Sunday. OSU was victorious on the women’s side, scoring 117 points. On the men’s side, the Wisconsin Badgers were winners on their home track, with OSU finishing 35 points back in fourth place. The OSU women stood in sixth place following two days of competition, but they made a Sunday surge to come back to win the meet with a seven-point advantage. Nebraska and Illinois tied for second place with 110 points each. Coach Karen Dennis told The Lantern the slow start in scoring points did not concern her because of how many OSU women qualified for the finals in their events Saturday. “We’ve been there before,” Dennis said. “We qualified 14 people, and that’s what made the difference.” Dennis said she felt the experienced team members led the way with their performances.

OSU senior sprinter Christina Manning sprints during the 2012 Big Ten Indoor Championships track meet Feb. 24 and 25 in Lincoln, Neb. OSU finished 2nd with 106 points. “The keys were the seniors,” Dennis said. “They brought us here, they stepped up and deserved to take the trophy home.” OSU’s contingent of 100-meter dash runners played a major role in the victory. The Buckeyes took four of the top five places in that event, with senior Christina Manning winning in 11.49 seconds. Senior Madison McNary finished second (11.71), junior Christienne Linton (11.72) was third and sophomore Chesna Sykes came
in fifth (11.80). Manning, McNary, Linton and Sykes also teamed up to win the 4x100-meter relay, setting a school and meet record with a time of 43.70. Manning also won the 100-meter hurdles (12.71) and finished second in the 200-meter dash (23.30 seconds). Junior Alexis Thomas was also an individual winner in the hammer throw. She set Big Ten meet and OSU school records in the event with a winning throw of 64.62 meters.
Thomas told The Lantern she felt fortunate that her performance helped lead her team to a championship. “It’s amazing (to win the Big Ten championship),” Thomas said. “It’s a great feeling.” OSU men’s track and field was unable to match the success of its female counterparts.

When a professional sports team in America has a bad season, as the old saying goes, there’s always next season — but not in European soccer. End-of-season discussions around some European professional soccer leagues are about survival. Mainly, which teams are going to survive to play another year in a given country’s top league. The English Premier League, the world’s most prominent soccer league, is among those leagues where suspense almost always carries into the final minutes of the season. The EPL has a stipulation in place that relegates or downgrades its bottom three teams in any one season to the Football Association’s Championship subdivision. In return, the top three teams of the Championship are promoted to the Premier League. Conceptually, it would be like the Columbus Clippers having the best record in Triple-A baseball and then moving up to play Major League Baseball the following season. And the same goes for the Championship, as well as the two divisions below it — the FA’s League One and League Two. The top and bottom three teams from each of England’s four divisions shuffle back and forth season after season.
With its season concluding on Sunday, this year’s EPL relegated teams are Wolverhampton F.C., Blackburn F.C. and Bolton F.C. No club is safe from the relegation rule as Blackburn (1995 EPL Champions) becomes the first former Premier League champion to be relegated. How harsh is that? Just 17 years removed from a championship and you’re deemed not good enough to compete in the league. Harsh or not, the rule is ingenious on some levels. It creates a level playing field and makes every game in a season matter. There certainly isn’t any talk of “tanking” game in the Premier League for any reason. So, what if American sports leagues adopted its European counterparts relegation and promotion rules? Would it be a good thing? Is it even possible? Would the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats have lost 23 games in a row to end the season? Whether it would be good for leagues like the NFL, MLB, NBA and the NHL to adopt the relegation-promotion rule is purely subjective. It would be good in the sense teams likely wouldn’t tank, and every regular-season game matters, but at what cost? Would the playoffs have to be eliminated? The EPL crowns its champion based solely on regular season performance. If there were no Super Bowl or World Series, would that be a good thing? The question of whether it’s even possible to have a relegation-promotion rule in American professional sports is interesting. As it stands now, only two of the top four leagues have the type of minor-league system in place to piggyback off the system used in English soccer.

studentvoice Indians won’t strike out in battle for title LANTERN columnist
As the Tribe has gotten off to a fast start and division lead again this season, the general sentiment around the league, and even among some of the Cleveland faithful, is “Here we go again.” With the mighty Tigers a near unanimous pick among experts to win their secondstraight division title, many think the same fate awaits the Tribe. But there are three big reasons why the 2012 Indians can prove the doubters wrong and grab their eighth Central Division title.
ETHAN STRAUB email@example.com In the first half of the 2011 MLB season, a young Cleveland Indians team took a commanding lead of the American League Central Division and held it into the month of July. But in the end, they were too good to be true. The high-powered Detroit Tigers came storming back in the second half and eventually won the division crown by a convincing 15-game margin as the Tribe, for the most part, fell off the map.
1. Much Improved Rotation At the start of the 2011 season, the Indians’ rotation was headed by the artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona, followed by an unproven Justin Masterson and an aging travel man by the name of Mitch Talbot. After an OK first half, the rotation came undone down the stretch. This year, the story is very different. The 2012 version is led by Masterson, whose coming-out party last year established him as a force on the mound. Behind him is Ubaldo Jimenez,
acquired in a blockbuster deal at the trade deadline last year, Derek Lowe, a veteran who has been nothing short of spectacular in the early going, and Josh Tomlin, another young gun who emerged as a solid starting pitcher for the team last summer. Besides Lowe, all three have underperformed and should only improve, meaning this team can only get better. 2. The lineup is a year more experienced, year better Last April, the Indians’ young lineup carried the team to a franchise-record 18 wins in the season’s opening month. Blistering starts by center fielder Grady Sizemore, designated hitter Travis Hafner, catcher Carlos Santana, and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera gave the Indians the lift they needed to grab the early lead in the central race. But after injuries to Hafner and Sizemore, along with starting left fielder Shin-Soo Choo, the lineup started to fizzle and was unable to hold on. This year, the same core remains,
but they are a year older and more experienced. Cabrera is off to another red-hot start, hovering around the .350 mark all year. Hafner and Santana have shown flashes, and young players such as second baseman Jason Kipnis and center fielder Michael Brantley have proven they are ready to take the next step in their maturation process. While no huge stars are present, the Indians have one of the deepest lineups in the league. 3. Detroit’s Illusion of Invincibility Behind the Los Angeles Angels signing of first baseman Albert Pujols, the biggest off-season acquisition of any team was the Tigers’ signing of former Milwaukee Brewers’ first baseman Prince Fielder. The move seemed to all but guarantee the Tigers’ the top spot in the division once again in the eyes of many. With Fielder and slugger Miguel Cabrera in the lineup and last year’s American League Cy Young winner Justin Verlander in the rotation, three of the biggest names in the game share
the diamond in Detroit. But the question is: Does the “Big 3” give this team the illusion of invulnerability? The best hitter in the lineup behind Cabrera and Fielder is a toss up between shortstop Jhonny Peralta and outfielder Delmon Young. Wait … who? And behind Verlander, the likes of Rick Porcello and Max Scherzer are the next best options. While Porcello and Scherzer both had solid 2011 seasons, they have gotten off to shaky starts to this campaign, and its unsure if they will be consistent contributors. Finally, the back end of the bullpen was a sure deal for the Tigers in 2011, as closer Jose Valverde converted all 49 of his save attempts with a 2.24 ERA. This year through 33 games, he has already blown two saves and has an ERA of 4.91. To say the Tigers are a sure bet is the stretch of all stretches at this point. The 2012 Indians certainly have an uphill battle, but have tasted the pains of collapse and will battle to avoid that sour sensation again.
Layers key to dressing for spring weather LANTERN columnist KAT NIU firstname.lastname@example.org The question “What should I wear today?” has always been tough. This spring’s unpredictable weather is not making the decision easier. Spring Quarter is everyone’s chance to flaunt themselves a little bit — no one really finds sweats and ski jackets attractive. Most of us already traded our big bulky coats for summer
attire, only to make it halfway across campus wishing we had that coat on because we overestimated the temperature. But aren’t we all just anticipating those perfect days? The most annoying thing about this type of weather is when I begin to sweat under my jacket while walking outside, which consequently makes the first five minutes indoors seem torturous. Nothing is more uncomfortable than sitting in a classroom waiting for the heat to rise off my face. The trick, I’ve learned, is quality and layers. Why waste money on different-sized jackets when you can just buy one? Leather is a great material for windy days. We can keep the sleeveless tops and shorts as long as we layer them. Wearing thicker tights under shorts is perfect for this weather. A tank-top or T-shirt, cardigan
and scarf combination can be just as warm as a jacket without overheating your system. In addition to trying to dress appropriately for a wide range of temperatures, the wind can put quite a damper on hair. Those with long hair are corroded with knots and frizz. Think about the amount of dust and dirt the wind weaves through our hair. With the amount of construction on campus, you can imagine the degree of added grime outside. Try some braids or up-do’s to avoid the pain of brushing though knotted hair. With a mild winter usually comes a cooler spring, but a taste of warm weather is not enough to satisfy the anticipation of summer. All we can do is hope for better weather so we can spend time laying around outdoors or playing sports instead of surfing the web indoors.

Miami Heat forward LeBron James hoists the 2012 MVP trophy before game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Indiana Pacers, May 13 at American Airlines Arena in Miami. The Heat won, 95-86.
MVP speech shows humility, maturity followed James’ talents to South Beach LANTERN columnist KAYLA ZAMARY email@example.com LeBron James joined an elite group of NBA players this past week, becoming the eighth player to win three League MVP awards. His talent is undeniable, but what was even more notable was the sincerity and emotion
with which he delivered his acceptance speech in recognition of being crowned the best player in the league for the 2012 season. It is hard to recall many occasions on which James has let his emotions be as visible as they were Saturday. He spent much of the time remembering those in his life that have helped him reach this point in his career, along with his family and teammates that allow him to continue to perform at a high level. It was truly uplifting to hear how humble and selfless he was. While many people in the Buckeye State will always hold a grudge against King James for “The Decision” in which he announced, during an hour-long
television special, that he would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat, I am glad maturity and peace seem to have followed James’ talents to South Beach. It seems with the support of the Heat organization, his teammates, his family and those who have been a critical part of his life, James will continue to grow and improve as a person and a player. Although he did not appear to be in balance mentally during last year’s playoff run, perhaps leading to his inability to play up to his expected level late in games, I think James is primed to reach his ultimate goal of capturing an NBA championship this year.

Rap beats, glow sticks and about 10,000 students, some who climbed trees and light poles, weren’t the only things that filled the South Oval during the Big Free Concert, as at least seven arrests were made on or near the area as well. Skrillex and Mac Miller performed in the Ohio Union Activities Board’s 2012 Big Free Concert, which was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on the South Oval. Mac Miller, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, took the stage first, at 8:15 p.m., followed by headliner Skrillex, whose real name is Sonny John Moore, around 9:30 p.m. The concert was delayed due to one of the artists feeling “under the weather,” OUAB Concert Chair Courtney Chow said in an email. Despite the late start, OUAB was happy with the outcome of the event, Chow said. “With a concert that takes months of planning, you hope for the best and expect the worst. Anything that came up was handled quickly and efficiently and, in the end, the audience showed their approval and appreciation for the show in their reaction during each of the performers’ sets,” Chow said. Students flocked to the South Oval as early as noon to stake out their front-and-center spots. Among the first to arrive was Matt Geisen, a thirdyear in Japanese and a “big Skrillex fan.” “I’ve been following (Skrillex) for a really long time,” Geisen said. “I think he has a really unique style and he came out right when dubstep was getting huge, so he was at the forefront of it. I really wanted to be front and center and make sure my friends and I got good spots.” A mosh pit inhabited the area directly in front of the stage for most of the concert. Some attendees surrounding the pit climbed trees and light posts in the South Oval while others bobbed their heads and raised their glow sticks throughout the show. Near the end of the concert the audience, as

instructed by Skrillex, swayed with its lighters in the air and sang “You are a cinema / I could love you forever.” As the concert came to a close before 11 p.m. and without an encore, two officers on horses and about eight officers on bikes of the Columbus Division of Police guarded Mirror Lake to prevent students from jumping in the lake after the concert. Police said there were no attempts to jump. “Everything has been fine on our end,” said Sgt. Patrick Shaffer of the Columbus Police as the concert was ending. “A few arrests were made by OSU Police, but we haven’t had any problems.” OSU Police filed at least seven police reports of incidents near and at the South Oval during the concert, with offenses such as trafficking in drugs, disorderly conduct, theft and possession of drugs, according to the OSU Department of Public Safety’s website. OSU Police did not respond to request for comment. While alcoholic beverages are permitted and sold on campus, students must abide by local, state
and federal laws regarding the sale and consumption of alcohol. The City of Columbus prohibits open containers in public spaces. “I saw a girl walking around on her phone with an opened bottle of rum,” said Andrew Proctor, a fifthyear in political science and sociology. “She made it about halfway down the path before a cop grabbed her by the arm and escorted her off the South Oval. The girl actually thought that since the cap was on the bottle it wasn’t an open container.” An after party was hosted at The Bluestone, located at 583 E. Broad St., where Skrillex met with fans and posed for photos. The party was free with anyone with a valid BuckID and $10 for anyone without. Proctor also attended the after show. “My roommate and I walked up to Skrillex and asked for a picture, which he nicely agreed to,” Proctor said. “I told him he killed the set and he told me he thought my Mickey Mouse shirt was awesome. That made my night.”

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus performed 7 shows at the Schottenstein Center May 10-13.
The Schottenstein Center drew in more than sports fans this weekend when it housed The Greatest Show on Earth and the “Fully Charged” performances that came with it, including canvas-painting elephants and humans set on fire. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus stopped in Columbus Thursday through Sunday as a part of its “Fully Charged” tour. It performed seven shows throughout the weekend. The show featured worldwide acts, including acrobats, tightrope walkers and a performance from Tabayara “Taba” Maluenda and his 12 Bengal and white tigers. A total of 13 countries were represented in the show. In addition to the circus’ nearly two-hour runtime, a preshow ran for an hour prior to the main event. During the preshow, audience members were invited to the floor to meet performers and animals, play games and enter to win a painting created by an Asian elephant. The majority of performers were recruited through a talent
team, which travels year-round in search of new acts. Among the performers were Guillermo and Alberto Fernandez, acrobat brothers who performed flips and jumps atop spinning wheels, and Brian Miser, “The Human Fuse,” who was lit on fire and shot across the arena from a giant crossbow. While most performers spent their lives training for a chance to be discovered, one particular clown got his start from a less traditional route. “I’m one of those unique people who literally ran away to join the circus,” said Sean “Pickles” Davis. “It was never on my radar. I actually met a dancer on the show back in 1995 and we hit it off and I literally ran away with this girl to be in the circus.” Davis, who is from Chicago and served as a United States Marine during the first Gulf War, said even though he is no longer with the girl who led him to the circus, his journey is no less a love story. “My love affair with the circus has greatly outlasted my young affair with that young lady,” Davis said. “I now have one big international family.” This particular troupe of Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey performers is in its second year of a full two-year tour, which requires the circus to perform in a new city every week, for 11 months out of the year. Though some might think of the circus as children’s entertainment, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus caters to all audiences, Davis said. “The line ‘Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages,’ is there for a reason,” Davis said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re 8 or 80, if it’s your first time or your 50th time at the circus. We don’t cater to one specific age range, genre or group. We cater to families.” Though targeted toward families, some OSU students were among the crowd, which filled about 80 percent of the Schottenstein Center. Katelyn Pagano, a third-year in exercise science, came to the show with her boyfriend Dustin Crum, a second-year in health sciences. “I have been to the Big Apple Circus and Ringling Bros. before, but not since I was really little,” Pagano said. “This was a really high energy event, and I honestly think it could be enjoyed at any age. I thought it was awesome.” Check thelantern.com for the rest of this story.

Students will have an opportunity to taste something sweet while supporting children with cancer this weekend at Cocoa For Kids, a chocolate tasting and silent auction held by Ohio State’s Rotaract Club. The event is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. Friday at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, located at 2201 Fred Taylor Dr. and proceeds will go toward Kids ‘n Kamp, a central Ohio charity devoted to the emotional and educational needs of children with cancer. The club switched its fundraising approach for Kids ‘n Kamp this year from a wine tasting to a chocolate tasting to attract students younger than 21. “We wanted to target or incorporate all OSU students, not just ones that are 21 years or older. We wanted the Ohio State community to have the opportunity to be more involved with the cause,” said Kyle Armstrong, a fourth-year in international studies and president of Rotaract. The event will showcase a variety of chocolate selections from a local vendor, the Chocolate Café,
as well as an independently contracted chocolatier Tracy Nickison with Dove Chocolate Discoveries. A silent auction will feature items and offers donated by Cocoa For Kids’ assortment of sponsors, Armstrong said. After raising $5,000 in last year’s wine tasting fundraiser, Armstrong said he hopes Cocoa For Kids will develop into a staple annual event for the group. Beverly Circone, founder and executive director of Kids ‘n Kamp, said, “One of the things we’re very
proud of here at Kids ‘n Kamp is that we have never ever turned a family away,” Circone said. “Every new family, however, is an increase in our expenses, but somehow we always make it through. Certainly it’s because of groups like Rotaract that we’ve maintained for 30 years without ever turning a family away. We couldn’t be more pleased.” Tickets are available at www.cocoa4kids.com. Prices are set at $15 for adults and $10 for students with a valid BuckID.
