“Dating doctor” cures UW-L love bug

By Stephanie Koss Staff Reporter

On Monday, Nov. 2, fourteen-time “Speaker of the Year” recipient, David Coleman, better known as “The Dating Doctor,” spoke at UW-La Crosse at 7 p.m. in Valhalla in Cartwright Center. Coleman works with hundreds of different clients annually, from many different walks of life, helping them to maintain better love lives. Coleman’s presentation focused on various aspects of the dating world, including finding someone who is right for you, surviving a bad break-up, how to decide if you should pursue someone or not and how self-love is the first step to finding a partner and maintaining a healthy relationship. Coleman received his B.S. in Speech Pathology and Audiology in 1983, and he received his Master of Arts in College Student Personnel in 1985 from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. He has

published several different books and been a part of many different collaborative efforts, all working to better the love lives and leadership potentials of people around the country. Coleman’s work with his clients has been featured in some well-respected publications, such as Us Magazine, Glamour, Women’s

“Negative self-image and self-talk stops now. In order for you to find someone to love you for who you are, you need to love yourself first David Coleman “The Dating Doctor” World, Cosmopolitan, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Washington Post. He has spoken to more than 2.5 million people in every state in the country, as well as Canada and Europe. Throughout his presentation at UW-L,

Coleman reminded students that self-love is the first step to bettering your current relationship or finding a partner if you don’t already have one. “Negative self-image and self-talk stops now. In order for you to find someone to love you for who you are, you need to love yourself first,” said Coleman. Coleman also provided a method for figuring out whether or not someone is for you in just five minutes, called the “ABCD” method: A stands for attractive, B stands for believe, C stands for chemistry, and D stands for desire. “You have to be attracted to them, believe what they say, have some amount of chemistry with them, and have a desire to get to know them more if you want it to work with someone. If one of these is missing, move on to the next person,” Coleman said. Coleman described that there are three different types of love that are necessary to share with your partner if you want to maintain

a healthy and successful relationship: physical “eros” love (touching, kissing, sex), agape love (unconditional, compassionate, selfless) and philia love (between friends, platonic). “You must have each of these three types of love in your relationships. If one is missing, the relationship will most likely not survive very long,” said Coleman.

“You have to be attracted to [someone], believe what they say, have some amount of chemistry with them...” David Coleman “The Dating Doctor”

During the course of the presentation, Coleman would take five-minute breaks and allow audience members to ask any questions regarding relationships, marriage, sex, gender identity, etc. The audience remained engaged throughout, and there was even a line for questions at the end of the presentation.

Cannabis: Weeding out big deficits

By Destiny Baitinger Staff Reporter

What does our nation’s capital Washington D.C., Alaska, Washington, Oregon and Colorado have in common? Their economy is rapidly growing due to a huge spark in the use of recreational marijuana. Among the most common, Colorado, there are four other areas where the recreational use of the plant is legal. Since then, four out of the five areas discluding Alaska, fall onto MSN’s top ten best economies in the country. There are also 18 other states that have legalized the medicinal use of cannabis as well. There have been many stipulations that the use of marijuana will only be a taxing revenue for the federal governments. A concern about the legalization and the taxing process is that much of the revenue from this sort of taxing would pool

only into federal tax revenue, disregarding the local needs. However, this has been proven to be wrong. The taxes, much like cigarette taxes, would fund projects and causes all over the country, and locally. For example, Colorado has used much of the tax revenue to fund school projects, construction and so much more. In 2014, alone, The Centennial State collected almost $63 million in recreational cannabis taxes, and the industry was worth almost $700 million.

“The Centennial State collected almost $63 million in recreational cannabis taxes. ” To validate the legalization of recreational cannabis use, is Colorado’s Governor John Hickenlooper. The trial-state governor states that, “The people who were smoking marijuana before legalization still are. Now,

they’re paying taxes.” Hickenlooper concludes that before it was a black market drug that was entirely illegal. Consequently, now people are just paying for many of the local and federal needs. Colorado’s tax revenue on cannabis and alcohol in 2014, totaled to almost $112 million alone. That’s excluding cigarette taxes. This could be a life changing amount to a budget where promises often aren’t fulfilled. This may enable a solution to a state’s big deficit. Colorado, though the trial state, has proved to be a successful industry in recreational use of marijuana. Yet, the newest state to say yes, Oregon has experienced similar economic success. As a matter of fact, KGW News states that Oregon has raked in $11 million after it’s first week of legalization. Similar to the veteran states, the Beaver State has decided to build in $9 million for tax revenue in 2017, though KGW News says, it’ll likely bring three or four

times that much. As far as I’m concerned, these trial states are proof that cannabis is a multimillion dollar business that stimulates many of America’s economies. Politician Bernie Sanders just recently introduced a similar idea to end the federal ban on cannabis. This proposal would end the familiar fight between local and federal government on the issue. Also, the aim is to build a strategic plan on the taxation of this substance comparably to alcohol and cigarette industries. While many seem to fight against the legalization of recreational use of marijuana, it’s inevitable to argue opposite to the facts that it’s stimulating economies. Consider the nation-wide legalization a motivation to stimulate the entire economy. Where people who have already been smoking cannabis, now are required to pool in money for more noteworthy causes.

Drone issue strikes home Late show host review: The Racquet weighs in By Megan Poczos Staff Reporter

According to Dictionary.com, a drone is “an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of sight.” Drones, or “unmanned aerial vehicles,” have been used in the military since as early as the beginning of the 20th century. Back then it was mostly unpiloted balloons that were sent over enemy lines to attack areas more accurately. Since then, drone technology has come a long way. Drones are capable of surveillance, cargo transport, search and rescue missions, maritime patrol and unmanned attacks. There is a lot of speculation on whether or not drones are more helpful than they are hindering. The easiest way for us to get to the bottom of this drone issue is to weigh out the pros and cons of the situation. Pro: Drones kill fewer citizens than any other military weapon. The majority of mass-destruction war machines create huge collateral damage, especially when not properly directed. When it comes to military use, the drone is one of the most trusted apparatus to get the job done correctly. Con: Drones still kill a large amount of civilians. It may be that they cause the least damage out of the military militia, but that does not mean that it does not cause any collateral damage at all. It is estimated by a meta-study of drone strikes that between 8-17% of casualties caused by drones are civilian. Pro: Drones are safer for military personnel. Drones are launched from bases around the globe, making them completely unmanned and minimizing the risk of injury and

fatality for those operating them. Con: Drone missions are secretive and prevent citizens from holding operators accountable. This is another issue that is highly controversial: Do we want to know who is being killed and why? Do we want to know who is authorizing the killing? If the answer is yes, drones make it much more difficult to place accountability on any one person. Pro: Drone missions are cheaper than manned aerial operations or engaging in ground. Manned aerial attacks cost roughly 42 times more to operate, costing the tax payer incredible amounts to keep the military effective. With the use of drones, the taxpayer’s hardearned dollars are being put into the developing area of drone use.

“From 2004 to 2012 an estimated 49 “militant leaders” were killed in drone strikes.” Con: Drone strikes usually kill low-value targets that are not significant threats to US security. While it is true that the drones cost less to operate and put into use, is it worth the cost if the drones are killing those who are not considered threats to the US? According to the New America Foundation, from 2004 to 2012 an estimated 49 “militant leaders” were killed in drone strikes, constituting “2% of all drone-related fatalities.” We can view all of the variables that go into drone missions and drone operation, but it is whether or not you think the pros outweigh the cons that can justify to use of drones as a valid military operative.

And now live from The Racquet, it’s “Who Is the Best Late Night TV Host?”! Today, late night television shows have become very popular for people to watch after a long day. Not only does America love them, but they are a reasonable source for people to get information as to what is happening in the world in a satirical manner. But the real question is, who is the best? Which television host has performed, joked, and most importantly, hosted themselves to the throne of late night television? I believe that on the air nowadays, the best name in the game is Jimmy Fallon, thanks to his humor and his ability to interact with his guests.

“Which television host has performed, joked, and most importantly, hosted themselves to the throne of late night television?” One of the reasons we have come to love late night television is the humor that comes along with it. Between poking fun at political scandals, tip-toeing on touchy subjects or just participating in fun skits, Fallon does it all on The Tonight Show. He has the ability to go from a monologue to open his show to singing, playing games and doing all sorts of zany things during the course of his show, and his variety really sets him apart. He has the ability to make every night different, and bring new

humor to the table, no matter how much work it takes. In addition to this, he also informs his audience about current events in a satirical way, which isn’t always easy to do. He wouldn’t be very successful at hosting though if it weren’t for how well he interacted with his guests. No matter who he has on his show, he has the ability to do something that is fun and unique for eac guest. He can put a jazzy twist on the news one night with Brian Williams, and then read screenplays children wrote for

“Jimmy Fallon own the throne in late night television and has a pretty good grasp on it.” the movie Magic Mike with Channing Tatum. Along with all of the situational humor, he can make hilarious conversation with his guests. His ability to personally connect with his guests and make it funny not only entertain fans of himself, but fans of the guests as well; people can go onto YouTube and see their favorite musician or actor just having a conversation with Fallon, and learn more about them than just reading articles and interviews in magazines. Overall, in my opinion, I feel that Jimmy Fallon owns the throne in late night television and has a pretty good grasp on it. Between his sense of humor, ability to provide variety and interaction with his guests, he is a powerhouse in the late night game, and has proven to be worthy of the title of the Best Late Night TV host

How to speak emoji

By Emily Hilby Staff Reporter

Words can be so complicated. The more we peck at our phones’ screens to connect with one another, the more content

we are to express ourselves solely through smiley faces, hearts and tiny pictures of salsa

dancers. When each person sees an emoji, they have their own individual interpretation. For example, the blushing emoji has been interpreted as simply that, someone smiling with a blushed face. Nevertheless, some people use it as sarcasm. For example, some have tacked it along with phrases like, “Got a speeding ticket today!” Typically a smiling face wouldn’t be associated with this type of phrase, but the user was saying ironically that he was not, in fact, smiling about it. Use context clues to better understand the meaning of the emojis, or use emojis to better understand the phrases. Examining them

side-by-side makes it easier to decode tweets, iMessages, etc. Another interesting facet of the emoji

Hey UW-L! What’s your favorite La Crosse coffee shop? By Alexandra Ronnestrad Staff Reporter

“I love Mc Caffrey’s. It’s really cool and it has a really cool vibe” Sadie Halfrich (left) “I like Mocha. I like the iced pumpkin chai” Sarah Ali (right) “I like the Pearl just because the atmosphere is so cute. It just has a cool feel to it and you can take it down to the river” Colette Johnson

90s nostalgia at the SMA Karaoke/ Lip sync Battle By Sarah Busse Staff Reporter

“The Root Note is my favorite coffee shop to go to in La Crosse. The service is always friendly, and it has a very unique atmosphere. Every night The Root Note has a different event. My personal favorite is trivia on Monday nights. Going with my friends to enjoy food and try to win a prize makes for a great night. Not too many people look forward to Mondays, but after finding this diamond in the rough, I can honestly say that Mondays are my fourth favorite day of the week! Their pour over coffee is also the best coffee I have had in the La Crosse area” Gabriel Nelson “I like JavaVino on the Southside of La Crosse because it is new and they give free coffee on Sundays” Joe Blatz

sparkling, spinning and even double-hearted emojis, and the list goes on and on. While many just view these several forms of hearts as a variety to choose from, some have gone so far as to give a specific meaning to each individual heart emoji. For example, the blue heart supposedly symbolizes a deep and stable love and the “revolving” hearts can be used to represent multiple love interests. Very few people follow this strict style of texting, but it’s just fun to know! Use whichever heart/color/emoji you are most comfortable with or whichever you like best. But now you are equipped with full-on arsenal of emoji-speak.

On Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 5, Valhalla was a happening place with flashbacks to the 90s everywhere and a crowd ready to see the talent the sponsoring organization, the Sports Management Association, had lined up. The first act was kicked off by a karaoke duet to Salt N Peppa’s “None of your Business” by Jenny Gallagher and Mary Gaspers. The two girls were decked out in the epitome of 90s urban fashion eager to show off what they got. When the girls were asked after the show what made them want to participate, they said their main goal was to come out and have fun and that they had succeeded. Next up was a solo lip sync act to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” performed by Aamer Mian, channeling Freddie Mercury in his bright leather yellow jacket and white pants. Then up was the steamy karaoke performance to “You’re the One That I Want” from Grease between Maria Cress and SMA advisor Kevin King. The pair definitely did justice to Sandy and Danny with their playful back-and-forth, and the crowd just ate it up. Following was Ryan Ettner lip syncing to “Big Poppa” by Biggie Smalls while rocking his psychedelic cat t-shirt. Next came the wildly original duet Rammstein’s “Engel” with Jan von der Brelie and Tyler Erding juxtaposing a stoic angel and a headbanging nightwalker. There were some minor technical difficulties, but the two carried on like troopers. Ricardo Lee took the stage next with help of two audience members and rocked his solo karaoke rendition of “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” by Cage the Elephant. After which the Backstreet Boys

were brought back by Johnny Ormberg and others, recreating one of the band’s biggest hits, “Everybody,” decked out in all white and with synchronized dance movements of course. The finale performance of the first act of the show was performed by Bobby Black lip syncing “Love” by Robin S. channeling all that is fierce and fabulous in 5 inch heels, no less. For the finale act of the show came the highly anticipated lip sync battle between theater professor Joe Anderson and football coach Reed Hoskins. Anderson went first with “Hook” by Blues Traveler whipping out words at lightning speed. Then Hoskins preformed “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen with aid from some of the football players. The performance was

To wrap up the show, the winners were announced: Bobby Black for Solo, Jenny Gallagher and Mary Gaspers for the duet, and Johnny Ormberg and company for group. As for the staff battle, Reed Hoskins was crowned this year’s champion. Overall, the event was a rocking good time and definitely worth checking out next year.

Six simple ways to elevate your boring sandwiches If you have always eaten the same plain sandwiches and are getting sick of them, look no further. We have plenty of suggestions on how to make an everyday sandwich extraordinary, and there is something here for everyone. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi

not only does it give you a new sandwich idea, it gets rid of your pesky leftovers! “I thought of this sandwich because I was so obsessed with our new panini maker, I wanted to try inventive new ways to use it” says Sammi Fitzsenry, a sandwich connoisseur. “You butter the outside of two pieces of bread, sprinkle some garlic powder on the butter, put spaghetti on the inside, and panini it!” The Perfect Pizza



By Miranda Martin Staff Reporter

Don’t worry, there is no raw fish going into this sandwich! To make it, you cut pieces of bread into long strips, throwing out the crust. Next, flatten the bread down until it is very thin. Spread the peanut butter and jelly across, then roll it up. If your sandwich looks like sushi rolls, you’ve done it right! The Slamwich This sandwich is twice as helpful because

Yep, this one is exactly what it sounds like! Just put sauce and cheese in between two pieces of bread, and add any pizza toppings you love. If you want to get fancy, go for adding pineapple, mushrooms, or even macaroni! To cook, just put it in the oven until it’s cooked to your preferences. Sassy Sweet Tooth Sandwich If you have a craving for all things sweet

(like me!) this is the sandwich for you. Make two waffles to use as the bread, then put whatever desserts you want in between. Personally I would suggest putting in ice cream brownie bits M&M’s and crushed up Oreos, but anything you have laying around home would work! Phenomenal Fruit Creation

Health Nut Helper



If you made too many waffles from the last sandwich, try putting fruit in between them for a new twist. Depending on the fruit, you could also put either caramel or peanut butter as a topping...or Nutella. But if you choose Nutella be warned; this sandwich may become a part of your daily diet because it’s just too good to resist.

For a healthier alternative to some of these ideas, you could try putting your usual sandwich between two pieces of lettuce instead of bread. To make mini healthy sandwiches, use cucumbers as the ends and add tuna spinach avocado and mozzarella cheese to the inside. If you like your sandwiches made the traditional way, try cutting them into fun shapes for a different twist. Another way to spice up an old recipe is to throw the sandwich into a panini press or on the grill to heat it up. No matter what you choose, good luck, and I hope you enjoy experimenting with your sandwiches as much as my roommates and I did this week!

UW-L football falls on Senior Day

By Alex VandenHouten Staff Reporter

UW-La Crosse fell 31-13 to the third ranked Titans on the last home game of the season. It was Senior Day for UW-L, which meant the seniors took the field for the last time in their career and looked to end their career on a memorable note. But an 11-yard pass from Brett Kasper to Joe Sommers capped off Oshkosh jumping out to a quick lead on an opening drive that took less than 3 minutes. UW-L answered with a 28-yd field goal by Matt Van Druten.


Tyler Jenkins, UW-L Junior had a career high in rushing yards Saturday

Once again, the Eagles had no answer to Oshkosh’s aerial attack as their ensuing drive went 65-yards and ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dylan Hecker to Zach Kasuboski and Greg Rand’s extra point made

it a 14-3 Oshkosh lead. UW-L was able to answer with a touchdown this time around as Austin Mancosky rushed for 47 of his 68 yards on the 80-yard drive that saw it end with a Drew David pass 12-yard touchdown pass to Joel Oxton. Oshkosh tacked on to their lead with a 29-yard field goal to end the half and make it a 17-10 game. To start the second half, UW-L went 53 yards in 8 minutes, but once again had to settle for a short Van Druten field goal that made it 17-13 Titans. The Titans once again had the answer as they went 70 yards in just 2 minutes and 19 seconds to tack on to their lead thanks to a Devon Linzenmeyer one-yard touchdown run to make it a 24-13 game. The UW-L Eagles appeared to be able to answer that touchdown with a touchdown of their own when David Wesolowski threw a one-yard touchdown pass to Jack Zwettler however it was called back due to a penalty for an ineligible man downfield. UW-L had to settle for another short Van Druten field goal; however, his attempt was blocked. After the blocked field goal attempt, UW-O was able to put the final nail in the coffin on the ensuing drive as Dylan Hecker ran from 11 yards out to put the game out of reach for the Eagles. The Eagles totaled 402 yards of offense and were led by running back Tyler Jenkins who set a career high with 147 yards rushing on 21 carries as the Eagles set a season high with 225 rushing yards. Drew David led the passing attack as he was 16 of 28 for 177 yards and one touchdown which was thrown to Joel Oxton who led the Eagles in receiving with 7 receptions and 83 yards. Noah Risch led the defense with 11 tackles, 3.5 were for a loss and also registered a sack. With the loss UW-L fell 3-6 on the year with a 2-4 record in the WIAC, while Oshkosh improved to 8-1 overall and 6-0 in the WIAC. With the win Oshkosh earned at least a share of its 9th conference title. UW-L wraps up its season at 14th ranked UW-Platteville on Saturday, November 14.
