The flu is hitting hard this year with more than 2,000 flu-related hospitalizations in Ohio as of Jan. 5. Flu shots are available to students at the Wilce Student Health Center.
Flu season hit earlier and harder this season and hasn’t run its course yet, but Ohio State doctors said it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine. Through Jan. 5, there were 2,000 flu-related hospitalizations in Ohio, compared to 86 last year and 175 the year before, according to the Ohio Department of Health. Because of the early start of flu season this year, a process called “mixing” has occurred, said Dr. James Jacobs, director of Student Health Services. Mixing is when people travel during the outbreak of a sickness, flu in this case, and potentially infect or become infected by an otherwise geographically separate group of people. “People have gone home to places where there is more flu and then they come back to campus, carrying the virus,” Jacobs said, since the flu started spreading at a higher rate than in previous years before students left for break. Jacobs said he expects a spike in flu cases over the next two to three weeks after the virus has had time to incubate. However, it is not too late to get a flu shot, said Dr. Angela Tucker,
clinical assistant professor of family medicine. Getting a vaccine doesn’t guarantee a person won’t get the flu, Tucker said, but the case will be much milder than if that person did not get the vaccine. While the vaccine doesn’t protect an individual from all strains of the flu, studies from the Center for Disease Control show that vaccines reduce someone’s risk of getting the flu by 60 percent. Flu shots are available for walk-ins at the Wilce Student Health Center from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, while supplies last, Jacobs said. Flu immunizations are covered under the comprehensive student health insurance plan, and several other insurance plans cover the cost partially or entirely. Without any insurance, the vaccination costs $25. “Supposedly there are already shortages in some places,” Jacobs said. “Although, it’s probably not an absolute shortage like there was several years ago. It’s probably just an issue of distribution.” Even if people decide not to get a flu shot, there are a few simple things they can do to prevent the flu. The most important of these is “hand-washing, hand-washing, hand-washing,” Tucker said. Jacobs agreed and added that it is

Fewer liquor sales near OSU campus
Booze brings big business and millions of dollars to numerous stores near Ohio State campus, but which ones earned the most in fiscal year 2012 might be surprising to some. The Giant Eagle at 1451 W. Fifth Ave. sold almost $6.4 million in spirituous liquor during fiscal year 2012, but the Kroger at 1350 N. High St. only sold about $3 million, said Matt Mullins, a spokesman for the Ohio Division of Liquor Control. Spirituous liquor is classified as being more than 21 percent alcohol, which does not include beer, wine or low-proof alcohol, Mullins said. The Giant Eagle at 777 Neil Ave., closer to the campus area, is not a contract liquor agency, which means it is able to sell beer, wine and low-proof liquor but not spirituous liquor, he said. The total revenue earned in spirituous liquor sales is not the profit made by the business, Mullins said. The business makes 4 percent of the wholesale liquor sales and 6 percent of the retail liquor sales. A spokesman for the Ohio Wholesale Beer and Wine Association said that due to sales competition between alcohol distributors, dollar sales for individual businesses are not readily available through the state. Melissa Blume, a fourth-year in human
In 2012, the Kroger on North High Street had fewer spiritous liquor sales compared to off-campus liquor retaliers, which does not include beer, wine or low-proof alcohol.* *All numbers according to Ohio Division of Liquor Control.

liz young Senior Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Ohio State students will soon have access to individual cloud storage accounts that will cost the university $250,000 a year to maintain. The cloud storage website will be called “BuckeyeBox” and use pre-existing OSU usernames and passwords for login, according to the Office of the Chief Information Officer website. The service has been available to faculty and staff since Dec. 15, according to University Libraries’ blogs. OSU will not make the service available to students until it’s in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination of the disabled. Box currently is not suited for many students with disabilities, said Julie Talbot-Hubbard, OSU’s chief information security officer, but the university is working with several other colleges including Indiana University, the University of Illinois and the University of Michigan to change that. Box allows users to keep relevant documents in one location, available for access from any device that has a connection to the Internet or runs on an iOS, Android or Blackberry platform. Users can then share those documents with other people, according to the OCIO website. Box is not for storing restricted data, however, including personal health information, credit card information and similarly private documents, according to the OCIO website. The new technology cost about $260,000 initially, including implementation costs. OSU will also have to pay a fixed upkeep cost of about $250,000 annually, said Katharine Keune, CIO spokeswoman.

OSU students gather on the Oval during the Fall Involvement Fair Aug. 20. The Winter Involvement Fair is scheduled to be held Jan. 16 in the Ohio Union from 6 to 9 p.m.
200 student orgs, penguins to fill OSU Involvement Fair alexandria chapin Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org More than 200 organizations have registered for the Winter Involvement Fair Wednesday, making it the largest to date, but that’s not the only thing that’s noteworthy. “This year we’re adding some live entertainment along with the event,” said Adam Burden, coordinator of student involvement at OSU. “We’re going to have some animals from the zoo, like some penguins running around and a guy doing ice sculpting.” The fair will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Archie Griffin Grand Ballroom and the Performance Hall at the Ohio Union. Burden said the fair is targeted toward freshmen and transfer students but is open to anyone looking to get involved on campus — even if they’re not quite sure what they want to do.
“You can browse and just walk around and talk to people,” Burden said. “Even if you’re not sure about your involvement or a particular group that you want to get involved with, it’s the place to be just to learn about what’s out there.” Although the fair held every January is much smaller than the one held on the Oval during Welcome Week, Burden said it is an advantage because students can easily talk with organizations one-on-one. “Because there are less groups, I don’t think it’s as overwhelming,” Burden said. “We have intentionally designed it that way to provide more space.” The Winter Involvement Fair is usually held in the ballroom, but this year the Performance Hall was also available at the same time. Burden said about 2,000 students attended last year’s Winter Involvement Fair, where 170 booths were set up in the Grand Ballroom.

One of the only things to fear in research is doubting yourself. But Mariam Hussain, a third-year in neuroscience and psychology, has been involved with research for four years and knows first-hand research isn’t for everyone. A 2012 Undergraduate Pelotonia Undergraduate Student Fellow, Hussain said she thinks that students interested in research should approach it cautiously. “It’s a very weird field to navigate but you have to kind of go for it, and just try to keep in mind that if it won’t work, it won’t work. If research is not for you, then that’s fine, but don’t get too afraid of just the fact of who you’re working with or the fact that you might not be good at it,” Hussain said. “(Research) might not be a good fit but you won’t know unless you actually do it.” Summer research opportunities will be on display from 4:30-6 p.m. Wednesday at the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library in Room 165. The Summer Research Fair, hosted by the Undergraduate Research Office, was initially designed for students familiar with research. After about 150 participants signed up, the URO decided to alter this year’s event to accommodate those new to research. “This is geared toward students who are already doing research and who want to do research in the summer, usually upperclassmen, but last year we had a lot of freshmen come, and we want to help them, too,” said Mara Penrose, URO program assistant. The fair does not require that students bring anything, and many research programs do not have a GPA threshold. “It’s more important for the students to gather information about the programs, than for the programs to gather information about the students,” Penrose said. Jeff Mason, director of the Pelotonia Undergraduate Student Fellowship Program, an organization participating in the fair, said inexperience shouldn’t hold students back. “I don’t want students to think they can’t come because they haven’t found a mentor, they haven’t updated their résumé, they haven’t figured out what their major is going to be,” Mason said. “People with no experience and no road map for where they want to go in research can come to the fair to talk to people that are in research and that can give them guidance.”

The view from the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library as students gather on the Oval on Aug. 20. The fair will have research available for many majors, especially those that deal with science, said Chris Winslow, assistant director of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program, also an organization expected to have a presence at the fair. “There’s molecular opportunities research there … pretty much all the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) things I know are represented,” Winslow said. While research traditionally lends itself to specific majors, there will also be opportunities for others as well, Mason said. The Pelotonia Undergraduate Student Fellowship Program provides students with a one-year job and $12,000 annual stipend, according to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute website, and has in the past help funded students in fields such as history, communications and business. “It might be a little more investigative work that (students) would need to do, but there are opportunities for research in any field,” Mason said. Students should not let their presuppositions stop them from doing research, Penrose said. “The actual doing of the research is not super academic, it’s another way of learning that’s hands on,” Penrose said. “Some people find that … they excel at research because it’s more doing and learning from doing.”

It might have been the pot leaf on the fliers posted around campus or the promise of free food that attracted about 65 people to the largest OSU Free Enterprise Society meeting to date. OSU Free Enterprise Society has been a student organization for more than a year but gained popularity with its most recent topic of discussion: legalization of marijuana, crack cocaine, heroin and other hard drugs. Every chair was full in the Central Classroom meeting room Tuesday, while others hovered standing in the back. “We just want to give people an opportunity to have some of these discussions,” said Brian Marein, president of OSU Free Enterprise Society. “We’re not trying to advocate these ideas. We’re not trying to force them upon people.” Marein, a fourth-year in economics and Spanish, said this group is not focused on legalization of drugs but on economics as a whole. “We really emphasize the benefits of free markets,” Marein said. “We have discussions like this simply to kind of explore free market principles.” Marein said drugs is a topic that can interest students, and if engaged in conversation, they could start to understand how the market works. “Like supply and demand and different principles like that,” Marein said. Adrian Waikem, a third-year in accounting, is the treasurer for the organization. She said she knows Tuesday’s discussion topic was controversial, but the organization has no plans to tone down the conversation. Waikem said other topics they are planning include anarchy and gun control.

According to the Ohio Department of Health, there have been 2,000 flu-related hospitalizations so far this flu season* compared to the 86 hospitalizations in 2012 and 175 in 2011 during the same time frame. *Flu season data measured from October-Jan. 5

Flu from 1A also good to practice “cough and sneeze etiquette” by covering coughs and sneezing into a tissue. Jacobs said this season’s flu is more virulent, meaning it is more likely to cause the infected person to suffer the symptoms of flu than in years past, including fever, a sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, fatigue, the chills and body aches. New York and Boston have already declared public health emergencies due to the flu. “It’s real, it seems to be real this year and that’s why we encourage extra precautions,” Jacobs said. Patrick Borgemenke, a first-year in computer science and engineering, said he does not plan on getting a flu shot this year.

development and family science, said she thought it was “weird” that Kroger sold less liquor than Giant Eagle, but said, “it could be because there are a lot of young professionals (living near Giant Eagle).” She said she lives on the north side of campus and, for her and others near her, Kroger isn’t as convenient as a gas station or local liquor store. The Campus State Liquor Store, located at 2465 N. High St., just north of West Blake Avenue, had dollar sales almost $6.8 million in fiscal year 2012, Mullins said. There are different permit classes available depending on the business entity selling alcohol. For example, a C1 permit is for beer carryout only and costs a business $252 per year, while a D5 permit that allows full on-site liquor sale privileges until 2:30 a.m. costs $2,344 per year, according to the Ohio Division of Liquor Control website. Mullins said there are three main entities in the state of Ohio that control liquor sales. The Ohio Division of Liquor Control handles the permit sales, the Ohio Liquor Control Commission enacts the enforcement and the Ohio Investigative Unit of the Ohio Department of Public Safety handles enforcement of the laws. “We all work together but also separately,” Mullins said. The system allows for “checks and balances.” In order to obtain a permit, there must first be a permit available to be sold. Mullins said the number of permits distributed is based on each taxing district. The city of Columbus as a whole is considered one district. SuAnn Cook, agent-in-charge of the Columbus District of the Ohio Investigative Unit, said there are about 24,000 permits issued in the state of Ohio. However, many class permits are exempt from the allotted quota, Mullins said. The Arena District in downtown Columbus is considered a Community Entertainment District by the city of Columbus,
“I don’t really believe in medication and all that fun stuff. It’s kind of just a personal choice I guess,” Borgemenke said. Kelsey Norton, a third-year in mathematics, also does not plan on getting the vaccine, but said she understands other people do. “They are good. They do stop a lot of people from getting the flu,” Norton said. Nathalie Sanchez, a graduate student in veterinary medicine, said she thinks getting the flu shot is a good idea, and she has already received hers this season. “I think everyone should get their flu shot. I don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t get one,” Sanchez said.
which means any business in the district is allowed to file for a liquor sales permit regardless of the tax district quota. A CED permit is also $2,344 per year, the same as a D5 permit. Feb. 1 of each year is the day inspections take place in Columbus. The renewal inspectors check for regulated administrative issues such as proper sanitation, Mullins said. Agents like Cook have the ability to issue violation notices against permits holder by local businesses. Administrative charges can include Sunday sales, after-hour sales and selling to already intoxicated individuals, said Jackie Williams, executive director of the Ohio Liquor Control Commission. Several area businesses located along High Street near the OSU campus had permit violations in calendar year 2012. According to dockets provided by the state of Ohio, at least the 14-0 Express Carryout and Buckeye Express in the campus area all had violations for selling to individuals under the legal age of 21. In addition, Gusses Enterprises, LLC, and Scarlet and Gray Café had violations for insanitary conditions where alcoholic beverages were not maintained in potable conditions. Each of these cases are still open. Cook said that while a violation for selling to a minor is considered a criminal offense, the customer and the seller are the individuals charged while the business itself would be required to go to a hearing at the commission. The underage individual purchasing the alcohol could be charged with a misdemeanor of the first degree and the seller could be charged with an unclassified misdemeanor. The commission itself acts as a court but only handles the administrative matters, Cook said. There are three commissioners that are the deciding factors on hearings. A permit violation could result in a fine, a suspension or a revocation, Williams said. “A revocation is serious and there are usually a number of prior offenses,” Williams said.

“My goal is to show people that the government is not always out for your best interest,” Waikem said. “A lot of people think things are bad just because they’re told, and I want people to really think for themselves.” The meeting started with a short presentation by the organization leaders, then they opened the floor for discussion. Dylan Young, a second-year in re-exploration, said he attended the meeting to get different viewpoints. “I support legalizing all drugs,” Young said. “But I’m against taxing. It would drive up the price creating a black market.” Johnny McElroy, a first-year in marketing, said he could support the legalization of marijuana to stimulate the economy and create new industries but not any other drugs. “I think some of them go too far in saying all drugs should be legal,” McElroy said. Marein said he did not want people’s values to weigh into the conversation. “It was difficult at times because people want to bring in their emotions and their values and we’re trying to avoid that,” Marein said. “Economics is a value from science. We were more looking at the feasibility of the war on drugs rather than the morality of it.” The organization plans to meet biweekly on Tuesdays and will discuss new topics each meeting. Marein said after Tuesday he is “extremely happy and optimistic about what else we can do.” “It’s important for a college campus to be open to all sorts of different ideas,” Marein said.
Storage from 2A The funding for the project came from 30 of OSU’s colleges, departments and regional campuses -- comprising roughly 80 percent of the university population -- that felt the technology would be beneficial. Some of those colleges included the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Keune said. There are 85 other universities in the U.S. already using Box, including Notre Dame University, Cornell University and University of California-Berkeley, said Robin Daniels, head of enterprise product marketing for Box. OSU’s information technology department brought forward the need for a collaboration tool late last winter, and after looking at several options, OSU had decided to move forward with Box by late summer, said Talbot-Hubbard. The difference between Box and similar storage technologies such as iCloud is that Box allows for a different kind of collaboration by encouraging the sharing of files, Daniels said. Box was founded in 2005 by Aaron Levie, then a student at University of Southern California, and
Penguins from 2A Jenna Mackey, a third-year in accounting and economics, is the event chair for the Involvement Fair and said she starts preparing for it in late October. “The primary goal of any involvement fair is to give students a look into what Ohio State has to offer,” Mackey said. “There are so many student organizations that it can be a little bit overwhelming.” Mackey said the layout of the fair helps students find an area of interest because similar organizations are grouped together in sections. “I think the setup of the fair is really good to let students explore the different opportunities,” Mackey said. OSU has more than 1,000 student organizations, and Mackey said of the more than 200 registered, 170 organizations will be set up in the Archie Griffin Grand Ballroom and about 40 in the Performance Hall. Organizations signed up online on a first-come,

Some OSU students are interested to try BuckeyeBox, even if they aren’t tech-savvy. “I’m not a technology person, so as long as it’s user-friendly, I will try (it),” said Bing Xing Ang, a fourth-year in actuarial science and economics. Other students said they are excited for the new group work possibilities. “I think it’s really cool because we’ll have our own, like, iCloud as Buckeyes and we can edit it (assignments) together in group work. That’s really fun,” said Frances Ren, a first-year in actuarial science. Still other students think the technology will make working together less time consuming. “It’ll benefit students, especially in engineering majors like (mine) where kids work together on labs and homework. Teachers actually encourage them to work together on stuff like this,” said Jeff Huggins, a second-year in computer science and engineering. “It’ll probably help us (students) collaborate on assignments. We probably wouldn’t have to meet as much if we could use this technology to help do our assignments.”
first-serve basis, and only university-registered organizations could participate. To register, an organization must have at least five student members, a president, a treasurer and an adviser. They then can apply online to be recognized by the university. Hannah Beardsley, a fourth-year in marketing, is an intern for Student Life and has been planning events like the Involvement Fair on campus for two years. “We’ve had really great traffic and high attendance at the event in the past couple years, and we’ve expanded,” Beardsley said. “I think we’re looking to fill up the Performance Hall and the ballroom.” Burden said students can expect to leave with free merchandise from different organizations. The Lantern will be one of the more than 200 organizations with a booth at the fair. Students are also welcome to join Student Life on Twitter for a live tweet from the involvement fair with the hashtag #WI13.

Thomas-Keith Joseph has a story to tell. But his form of storytelling is a little unconventional. Joseph, a second-year in exploration, is a rapper. “I want to share my story and my song with other people,” Joseph said. “It’s a way to express how I feel.” Joseph plans to use this year’s Buckeye Showcase, Ohio State’s student talent competition, to share his music. Buckeye Showcase is organized by Ohio Union’s Major Campus Events Committee, the same committee that plans events such as Welcome Week, the Student Involvement fairs and Beat Michigan Week. “It’s a chance for students to showcase their talents to an audience of their peers,” said Kristen King, the chairwoman of the event. In past years, Buckeye Showcase acts have included taekwondo, improvisation, belly dancing and singing. “We’ve had jugglers in the past, hip-hop dancing, step (dancing), ‘Key of Gee’ performed last year,” said King, a fourth-year in hospitality management. “It’s really a wide variety of talent.” Tryouts for the fifth annual Buckeye Showcase will be held Jan. 22 from noon to 5 p.m. and Jan. 23

One featured act in the 2012 Buckeye Showcase was a group of Chinese dancers. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and are open to all OSU students. Students will try out in front of a panel of students involved in the Major Campus Events Committee who act as judges. “The tryouts will be videotaped and then the Major Campus Events
Committee is going to sit down and evaluate them based on a couple different categories,” King said. King said that as of Sunday, 12 acts had been confirmed to audition for the talent show, but she continues to receive new emails from people wanting to audition every day.
“I’m hoping to have 20 to 25 acts by the time auditions come,” King said. At the actual competition, students in the showcase will perform to an audience and a panel of selected judges. King said the only confirmed judge is Javaune Adams-Gaston, vice president for Student Life. Last year’s prizes included $500 and a trophy for first place, $250 for second place, $150 for third place and a trophy for the audience’s favorite. King said this year’s prizes are still under consideration, but she hopes to add a cash prize for the audience’s favorite this year. Last year, OSU a cappella group Buck That! took home the firstplace trophy and the cash prize of $500. Collin Gossel, a second-year in music composition, plans to audition with his stand-up comedy act for Buckeye Showcase to gain exposure and practice performing in front of an audience. “Like any skill, stand-up is something that you have to practice a lot, especially in front of an audience,” Gossel said. “Any chance that I can get to perform for a large group is something that I want to scoop up.” The Buckeye Showcase is scheduled to take place on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Ohio Union Performance Hall. Tickets are free for all students.

Patrick Bailey Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Seattle-based blues rock band Candlebox is back from an indefinite hiatus to tour in celebration of twenty years of making music. Candlebox is scheduled to perform a free show at 9 p.m. Thursday at the Hollywood Casino Columbus. “The tour is basically a kind of launch back to how we started back in the day,” said Candlebox’s singerguitarist Kevin Martin. “Our first record came out back in 1993. I can’t believe we’re still around.” The band’s first launch into success came with that album, which was self-titled, due to the popularity of the song “Far Behind,” which rocketed the album up to No. 7 on Billboard’s album charts. “I remember hearing that song (‘Far Behind’) constantly growing up,” said Seth Gintert, a third-year in environmental science. “But I never knew the band that went with the song.” Gintert said he wouldn’t be able to attend the free show because of his studies. Despite its popularity surge in the ’90s, the band was forced into hiatus in 2000 following disputes with its label, Martin said. “We were having a really bad relationship with our label at the time, Maverick,” he said. “We felt that we were getting lost in their politics.” Candlebox broke up in an attempt to free itself from Maverick, but the plan backfired due to the band’s contractual obligations to the label. Martin said this led to several years of “limbo,” where the band couldn’t produce any music as Candlebox. This lasted until 2006 when it reunited to do a
supporting tour for the release of its greatest hits album, “The Best of Candlebox.” Since the reunion, Candlebox has released two studio albums: 2008’s “Into the Sun” and “Love Stories & Other Musings,” released April 3. Martin said apart from celebrating Candlebox’s history, the audience at Hollywood Casino can expect to hear some new material mixed in with the classics. “This is the only Candlebox record that I really, truly, honestly love from top to bottom,” Martin said of the band’s most recent album. “I think it’s the best record we’ve ever done.” Kyle Siegrist, owner of Lost Weekend Records, located at 2960 N. High St., had a slightly different opinion. “Honestly we’re not really into that music here,” Siegrist said. “We mostly stick to lesser-known artists. We don’t really carry any big name, pop-y stuff like that.” Martin said playing at Hollywood Casino will start a “new chapter” for the band’s shows in Columbus. “Normally we play at the Newport Music Hall, right there on the strip,” he said. “So this will be a new direction for us.” He said while he likes places like the Newport, the band can’t get the same huge sound it can at large venues like Hollywood Casino. “A lot of the venues around town can’t really afford to put the kind of P.A. (system) in that we require,” he said. “So when you go to a casino gig you’re pretty stoked to be there despite the kind of cheesy elements to it. It’s nice to play on gear that really works where you can really turn it up and make it sound the way you want your show to sound.” Admission is free and attendees must be 21 or older. Hollywood Casino is located at 200 Georgesville Road, Columbus. Courtesy of FX
OSU students to portray ‘Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness’ through art Chelsea Savage Lantern reporter email@example.com For 11 weeks, the OSU Urban Arts Space will be home to the artwork of 11 students — but the contributors aren’t limited to just art students. The annual Arts Scholars Juried Exhibition, which opens Saturday, features entries from Ohio State students from different majors and years of study. The theme for this year’s show is “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,” in honor of the Olympics, the Columbus bicentennial and the presidential election, said Tim Valentine, the Arts Scholars program manager. “The greatest part about the program is that (students who submit work) don’t have to be an art major to be able to participate,” he said. “It’s just really cool to see a program that celebrates artists regardless of their major.” Artists who submitted work for this year’s exhibition presented their proposals to a small committee that reviewed the works for theme consistency.

Michelle Vieira submitted a piece called ‘A Futile Effort’ for the 2012 Arts Scholars Juried Exhibit. from the College of Arts and Sciences will choose the winners. “There’s a Best in Show that wins a $1,000 scholarship from the college, then one or two other people that win $500 scholarships from the college for being honorable mentions,” Valentine said. Last year’s Best in Show scholarship winner, Michelle Vieira, a second-year in art, is this year’s student chairwoman for the exhibition.
“I work on setting up the exhibition and the space and work with the jurors to determine who gets first place and the scholarships,” Vieira said. Vieira is not only curating the event, but also will have a piece in the show. “Being the student leader for this is awesome because I get to see the other side,” Vieira said. “It’s been really cool to come up with the idea and work with the artists, doing logistical management and to see how it all works.”
Participating in the Arts Scholars Exhibition provides the student artists with an opportunity for both exposure and experience, Valentine said. “The benefit for all the students is to learn about the process of proposing a piece, creating it, installing it, hanging it and pricing it,” he said. Grace Bowen, a second-year in industrial design, is one of the several participants who are not art majors. “Not being an art major, I wouldn’t have a lot of other opportunities to put a piece in a gallery,” Bowen said. “It’s really cool to be a part of the art community and have support from my friends.” After seeing the exhibit last year, Bowen said she is excited to participate and be a part of it this year. “I’m really excited for my peers to see my work and I’m excited to see theirs,” Bowen said. “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” is scheduled to open Saturday and remain open at the Urban Arts Space, located at 50 W. Town St. Suite 130, until March 8. There will be an exhibition reception on Feb. 1 from 6-8 p.m., during which the scholarship winners will be announced.

OSU wrestling marching on without Stieber ethan day Lantern reporter email@example.com The Ohio State wrestling team eagerly anticipates the return of redshirt sophomore and team captain Logan Stieber as he works his way back from a leg muscle strain he suffered in early January. Stieber, who is undefeated with a 15-0 record, has been out for the past three matches, and his absence has been felt. The Buckeyes are 1-2 without him in the lineup. OSU coach Tom Ryan said Stieber’s presence has a great impact on how the team performs. “I think when you have a guy like Logan, I mean you have a great leader in there,” Ryan said. After all, Stieber is the defending 133-pound NCAA Champion. “You don’t know how guys are going to react without him in there until you see it, and I think he’s a spark. He’s a spark for the team and we need him back.”
As important as Stieber is to the team, his fellow wrestlers aren’t using his absence as an excuse for their losing record during that time. Freshman Mark Martin, who wrestles at 165 pounds,said the team needs to increase its effort without, arguably, its top wrestler. “It basically forces us to step up. Everybody has to step up and make up for him being out, I guess. We all have to do our jobs and pick up our mentality,” Martin said. Because of the injury, which is being evaluated on a week-to-week basis, Stieber has had to tweak the way he leads the team with just his words instead of by example. “(It’s difficult) just being at practice and not being able to wrestle at matches,” he said. “I can always help by talking and getting everyone pumped up, but it’s very different if you’re out there wrestling. That’s the thing that sucks the most.”

Ohio State freshman pole vaulter Emily Schwartz clears her mind with a few breaths before taking off for launch. “(I) shake out, walk up to my line, take a deep inhale, then exhale and think of absolutely nothing,” Schwartz said. Such tranquility, though, is short-lived. Moments later, Schwartz will find herself furiously sprinting down the runway and staring up at the vault, with the hope of clearing it before making a safe landing. Track and field athletes like OSU’s Jesse Owens or Jamaican sprinter and Olympic gold-medalist Usain Bolt seem to be household names when it comes to achieving in some of the sport’s most popular events, but some pole vaulters on OSU’s men’s and women’s track and field teams said their sport remains an enigma. “We are the stepchild of the sport,” said Robert Banhagel, a volunteer coach for the men’s track and field team who works directly with the vaulters. “But I personally believe that it is the most complicated event in track and field because a pole vaulter needs to be as fast as a sprinter, as agile as a gymnast and as strong as a shot putter, so it’s a combination of all of them.” Pole vaulting is an event in which athletes use a long, flexible pole made of fiberglass or carbon fiber to scale the crossbar dozens of feet over their heads. The initial and successive heights are determined by the sport’s officials, but the athletes can choose the desired height for the crossbar to be placed. They get three attempts to clear the bar, and if successful, they can proceed to a higher jump.

OSU junior vaulter Tyler Borton tries to clear the crossbar at the 2012 Big Ten Outdoor Championships on May 11 in Madison, Wis. OSU finished 4th.
“You basically have to run down the runway, jump off the ground with a pole and get over the bar, and if the bar stays up, you’re pretty much good to go,” said OSU junior vaulter Tyler Borton. Pole vaulting can be an expensive trade, too. “Each vaulter has between four and six poles that they would use in competition, depending on the circumstances, and they range anywhere from $1,000 to a couple thousand dollars,” Banhagel said. Schwartz said the pole vault is often compared to gymnastics, due to the flexibility necessary to clear the crossbar without grazing it. “I was a gymnast for 12 years,” Schwartz said. “It is generally recommended to have the training of a gymnast when doing pole vault.” Banhagel said the key to a successful attempt is all about the athlete’s technique. A deficiency in that realm, he said, could be cause for alarm. “What makes me nervous as a coach is when I see other coaches who do not step in when they see their athlete doing something wrong, and they don’t correct it,” Benhagel said. “When you have an athlete who’s not that fast and they are holding really high on the pole and they keep coming down and can’t land in the pit, that’s when injuries occur.” Benhagel, who is a new addition to the OSU men’s team’s coaching staff, said he has high hopes for the squad’s success this season. “I want us to get to the point where we are getting attention and make people want to come here,” he said. “I always wondered why Ohio State track was not a powerhouse that it should be … I think coach (Ed) Beathea is getting it right. He is recruiting the right people and I think he’s putting OSU back on the map.” The men’s and women’s teams are scheduled to compete this weekend at the Gladstein Invitational in Bloomington, Ind.
Buckeyes looking to avenge disappointing 2012 season daniel rogers Lantern reporter email@example.com Last season ended in bitter disappointment for the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, the 2011 national champions, when it failed to make it to the NCAA tournament after a loss in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association tournament. The loss sent the team into a bit of a transition phase during the off-season. Team leaders Shawn Sangrey, Mik Berzins and Anthony Hock were gone, and new players needed to step into the spotlight for coach Pete Hanson’s squad to succeed. “We’ve got some young guys playing,” Hanson said, “and I don’t mean necessarily they’re all freshman and sophomores, but we’ve got some young guys that just don’t have a lot of experience.” As was perhaps clear during this past weekend’s Outrigger Tournament in Hawaii, relying on youth has its risks, but the long-term payoff is well worth the negatives for Hanson. “The only way you get these guys to understand is to put them in those kind of situations,” Hanson said. “You’re going to win a few, and you may lose a few, but hopefully they are going to figure out over time how they have to perform night in and night out.” One of those young players, sophomore outside hitter Michael Henchy, said he believes last season’s finish helped bring the team closer together. “We have banded together after witnessing last year’s disappointment,” Henchy said. “We know what it’s like to fall short on expectations and have a tougher edge to us than we did last year.”
Despite a disappointing start to the season, the mood in the locker room might be upbeat as ever, with the belief that this team has all the tools to make it back to the national championship. “They even have a countdown there on the green board talking about ‘Hey, how many days is it until the national championship tournament,’” Hanson said. The road to the national championship first runs through the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association and the No. 12 Lewis University Flyers, the team that ended the Buckeyes title defense last season. Lewis (1-4), which the Buckeyes are set to play at home March 2, started the year against three teams ranked in the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s top 15. Lewis, though, might remain the greatest threat to OSU for the MIVA championship this season. Redshirt sophomore setter Peter Heinen was one of the players who had the burden of following in the footsteps of the 2011 national title squad. “Last year we did have a little chip on our shoulder, which was not always a good thing,” Heinen said. “This year we are coming in ranked third in our conference, which I am excited about because I think it gives us extra motivation.” Recent struggles may show this team isn’t quite ready to reach the lofty heights of 2011, but some members of the team expect a late season run once the squad learns what it is like to play together. “I believe that we have the potential to be one of the most athletic and exciting teams to watch once we hit our groove,” Heinen said. OSU is set to play St. Francis Sunday in Loretto, Pa.

tours in the same season (Luke Donald in 2011). The comparisons to Woods also escalated the past two seasons. Many believe McIlroy will be the face of golf for many years to come, just like Woods has been for the past couple of decades. So now that Nike has contracts with the two most recognizable players in the game, things can only go up for the company. Nike proved once again they have the influence, apparel and equipment to sign the best players in any sport. Despite Nike’s power in the sports business world, they have some problems to deal with involving McIlroy. Oakley, an apparel company that he had a contract with that ended last year, is suing McIlroy and Nike for breach of contract. Also, Nike couldn’t snag last year’s top amateur golfer. Jordan Spieth, who turned professional last month after foregoing his final two years at the University of Texas, signed a clothing deal with Under Armour, which was announced Monday as well. I don’t think Nike is too worried about that, however. The friendly “rivalry” that has grown between Woods and McIlroy will provide years of marketing opportunities and entertaining commercials (one has already been made with the two superstars hitting crazy shots on a driving range that end up in different cups, including glasses at a wedding). On the course, how much will the club change impact McIlroy’s game, if any? He has become so used to using Titleist clubs and balls that he knows everything about them: from exact distances each club gets to how much spin he can put on the ball. Believe it or not, there are differences in types of clubs and balls that the weekend golfer might not see, but professionals can notice the first time they test a new product.
It’s no secret that Nike has established itself as the most dominant sports apparel and equipment company, reeling in the biggest names in sports over the years from Michael Jordan and LeBron James to Tiger Woods. Monday, Nike announced the addition of another superstar to their sparkling resume: the No. 1 golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy. The 23-year-old Northern Irishman will be covered from head to toe in Nike gear. He will also use Nike golf clubs and balls, which is different from the Titleist equipment he used for the first five years of his professional career. Although Nike won’t release the specific terms of the contract, it has been reported that the multi-year contract is worth anywhere from $200 to $250 million. McIlroy, whose silky-smooth swing can produce bombs off the tee well over 300 yards, has dominated the Professional Golfers Association and European tours over the last two seasons. He has a combined seven wins on both tours, including two major championships (2011 U.S. Open and 2012 PGA Championship) . In 2012, he became only the second player to win the money title for both

Rory McIlroy celebrates with his caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald, after winning the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island, S.C., on Aug. 12. Another question that arises is whether or not McIlroy should have made the switch now. He’s on top of the golfing world; wouldn’t you want to stick with the equipment you have and not change anything since your game is near flawless? Or is it the right time to change equipment at a young age? Then again, he is the best golfer
in the world, so he should be able to make the adjustment pretty easily. However, if he struggles right away, he will have to deal with an enormous amount of scrutiny and pressure to perform well. Either way, we will get a preview of McIlroy’s new look in this week’s European Tour event, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in the United
Arab Emirates. For the first two rounds, McIlroy is scheduled to play with — you guessed it — Woods. It will take me a little while to get used to a Nike-covered McIlroy strolling down the fairways, but this starts a new era for him: one that he hopes will propel him to even greater performances and achievements on the course.
Through ups and downs, to loyal Cleveland sports fans, FirstEnergy Stadium will forever be Cleveland Brown Stadium I’ve never known a town without supportive sports fans, no matter how badly our teams are doing. I’ve been through this same situation twice before, when Gund Arena became Quicken Loans Arena and when Jacobs Field became Progressive Field. Everyone said it would always be “The Gund,” but over the last few years, “The Q” has caught on and fans seem a lot less angry about the switch. The Indians tried to make “The Prog” stick after the switch, but I often catch myself still calling it “The Jake.” No matter the financial matters and who owns what, to me, the Browns will always play at Cleveland Browns Stadium. And I think all other loyal Browns fans would agree.

As an overly passionate Cleveland sports fan, I have come to expect disappointment, but only so the good times seem that much better. KAILY CUNNINGHAM The cunningham.572@osu. Browns are edu definitely a source of most of my pain as season after season we have a new quarterback or coach, and things just never seem to work out. So when new owner, Jimmy Haslem, came to Cleveland, I thought that finally things might start to turn around. We might actually have a season over .500 within the next few years. Then I received the bad news — I no longer can call it Cleveland Browns Stadium. A utilities company bought the rights to the stadium that is home to my beloved Browns, and it will now be known as FirstEnergy Stadium. To many, this doesn’t seem like bad news, it’s just a stadium right? But to a lifelong devoted Cleveland fan, it’s just another reason to be saddened by sports news in my hometown.

the 133-pound weight class, going 1-2 in that time span . However, the Buckeyes could be going with a different 133-pounder this Friday away against Indiana, with redshirt sophomore Drew Stone, who also is listed at 125 pounds. “There will be a wrestle-off this week between Visconti and Stone,” Ryan said. “Stone was out with an injury so we couldn’t have a wrestle-off before, and plus it was really last minute who we were going to put in there. So they’ll wrestle off if we don’t figure it out.” After Indiana, the Buckeyes are set to host Wisconsin on Jan. 20 at St. John Arena.

But the Buckeyes shouldn’t have to wait much longer to see the 2012 All-American and Big Ten Champion back on the mats. Stieber has been pleased with his progress since the injury and said he is set to return against Illinois on Feb. 1. “It’s going good, but we don’t want to rush back into anything,” he said. “I just have to take my time and have a great rehab.” In the meantime, several Buckeyes have the opportunity to fill the hole left by Stieber’s absence. Redshirt freshman Kyle Visconti, who typically wrestles at 125 pounds, has been wrestling in place of Stieber in
The Ohio State men’s basketball team is coming off arguably its biggest win of the season, taking down archrival Michigan, 56-53, but I still don’t care. OK, it’s not that I don’t care, but I just am not nearly as interested as I have been in previous years. Teams led by Jared Sullinger, Evan Turner and Greg Oden were the things my life revolved around. School, work, even relationships took a back seat to watching these teams play. Whatever the record, although they were typically fantastic, I would find the Buckeyes on television and
shut out all else. But this season I have found it harder and harder to get really into OSU basketball games. Although the turnout at Woody’s for those students who couldn’t attend the Michigan game might tell you otherwise, there are many students who are dealing with the same indifference. The passion and pure unadulterated joy that came to campus last year after home victories against Duke and Indiana just has not been matched this season. But what is it that is keeping this talented team from garnering the following that previous Thad Matta-led squads have had? It is hard to pinpoint an exact reason as to what has changed from such a short time ago since there are so many factors contributing to the decline in interest. Potentially most clear of all is the inflated expectations this team has suffered from. Ranked No. 4 overall in the preseason AP poll, OSU hasn’t quite lived up to these lofty beginnings, dropping three games to some very talented teams in Duke and Illinois and at home against Kansas.
