Sexually active women haveused more birth control than inthe past, according to a study conducted by the Centers or Dis-ease Control and Prevention thismonth.Te survey o 12,000 womenrom 2006 to 2010 ound 99 per-cent o sexually active womenages 15 to 44 have used contracep-tives in their lietimes, largely thesame since 2002. Te use o emer-gency contra-ceptives in theorm o Plan B,Preven or othermorning-aterpills, however,has more thandoubled.“It’s sort o acomort thing— knowing thatyou do have thisbackup plan,this Plan B, to prevent an unwant-ed pregnancy,” Haley Miller said.Miller, a senior rom Kingman,believes that all women should beeducated about and made awareo birth control options. Con-traceptives, she said, should beaccessible to all women who aresexually active.“Te increasing number o women who are using it as birthcontrol is reective o how muchbirth control is talked about inour society and women not hav-ing access to more reliable ormso contraceptives: the pill, con-doms, what have you,” Miller said.“It needs to open up a larger dis-cussion about more eective andlong-term types o birth control.”While 11 percent o womenages 15 to 44 surveyed said they have used the morning-aer pill,a staggering 25 percent o womenin their early 20s have. Hal o these women said they used themorning-aer pill, which mustbe taken within the frst fve daysaer having unprotected sex. O surveyed women who have usedthe morning-aer pill, 59 percentsay they have only used it once.Emergency contraceptives pre- vent pregnancy by inhibitingthe egg rombecoming er-tilized: morn-ing-aer pillsdelay ovulationor thicken cer- vical mucus sosperm cannotmove to meetthe egg.Te ederalhealth care law, eective or allnew health insurance plans as o August 2012, requires health in-surers and employers to includebirth control in their health in-surance plans. Despite politicalcontroversy, the law applies toemergency contraceptives whenprescribed by a doctor. Te morn-ing-aer pill, however, is generally purchased over-the-counter.“You just take the morning-aerpill or an emergency protection,”said Mark Smith, a pharmacistWhen Abby Petrulis visitsMassachusetts Street, she’s on thelookout or something uniqueand exciting, like a quirky shop, vintage store or one-o-a-kindrestaurant.“It’s always alive. here’s alwayssomething going on,” she said.“here’s simply no place like it.”Petrulis, a reshman romOlathe, is one o many who eelthis way. It’s a proven act thatLawrence is a unique collegetown. In act, it’s one o the topten in the nation according to theAmerican Institute or EconomicResearch.Recently, the downtown areagained another prominent dis-tinction as a local cultural area.he area, spanning east romKentucky Street to the BurroughsCreek rail, includes Massachu-setts Street, the city library, SouthPark, Watkins Museum and otherlandmarks.he Lawrence Cultural ArtsCommission proposed the des-ignation, and the Lawrence City Commission approved it Feb. 12.Dianne Stod-dard, city liaisonor the CulturalArts Commis-sion, said thatthis will be ableto bring money into the city and arts centerby way o grantunding.“A lot o grants that are at the nationallevel are looking or unique syn-ergies with geographic areas andthis kind o designation is an ex-ample o that,” she said.Stoddard said the ambientshopping district, various muse-ums and art-related organizationsalready draw tourist activity intoLawrence. he designation willbe a springboard or more mar-keting and tourism eorts.he combination o art andbusiness is also a distinguish-ing eature o downtown.

At last year’s tournament,they were the only team o twowomen to compete.“I very rarely see teams o twowomen just because there arenot many emales involved indebate,” Campbell said. “It eelsgood to be representative.”Scott Harris, coach o the KUDebate team, is proud o Kansas’long tradition in the NationalDebate ournament and the ac-complishments that Campbelland Gress have made.“hey are a strong symbol o what strong, articulate womencan accomplish,” Harris said.he National Debate ourna-ment hosts 78 competing teams.his year’s topic discusses ed-eral govern-ment strategiesor increasingdomestic ener-gy productiono coal, naturalgas, nuclear,oil, solar orwind.Members o the KU Debateteam spend20-40 hourseach week toresearch andprepare arguments or tourna-ments. ournaments usually span three days with membersparticipating in 6-12 debatesthat last approximately twohours.“I like the challenge o com-peting in tournaments and pre-paring arguments,” Gress said.“It’s a big time commitment, butI like the challenge o keepingup with the success o KU De-bate.”

School of Education to offeronline master’s program

The School o Education is taking steps to implement a two-year blended master’s program that will ocus on sel-directed, online learning. Pilot classes have already seen success.
Te School o Education isimplementing a blended master’sprogram or educational administra-tion, meaning students pursuing amaster’s degree in this eld o study will be able to complete their degreethrough the Internet.Te degree is designed or stu-dents to complete in two years andullls the academic requirements orstate licensure or positions such asassistant principal or principal. Tenew blended program will eliminatethe time students spend traveling toclass and attending class on campusby ocusing on online sel-directedlearning.Joseph Novak, Director o theEducational Leadership and Policy Studies Department in the School o Education, said the blended master’sprogram will nally enable more stu-dents to obtain a master’s degree inthe educational administration.“Te School o Education togetherwith the University has elt a need tobring a competitive hybrid programinto the market,” Novak said.Stacy Rietzke, a student romMission who is currently pursuingthe degree, says the pilot program isworking well or her.“Dr. Novak has stepped out o hiscomort zone to accommodate ourclass through Adobe Connect. Tisprogram allows our class to not only receive real-time audio/video lecturesrom him, but it also allows us all toparticipate and share our experiencesthrough the audio and video,” Rietzkesaid in an email.“In piloting several traditionalclasses this past all and spring se-mester, students are applauding theeorts o the School o Education inscheduling several class sessions in aninteractive video conerence ormat.Utilizing ‘Adobe Connect,’ we havebeen able to hold several seminarclasses while students have been intheir homes.” Novak said.Novak has done his own researchon the success o hybrid programsand believes the new blended pro-gram will attract more students to theUniversity.“Most hybrid programs availableallow the exibility o completinga good part o the course responsi-bilities at their computers, in theirhomes, and when they had the time.”By using the Internet, Novak saidthe new hybrid program will allow students to balance daily lie withcompleting a master’s degree.“Afer teaching at school all day,it makes it convenient to be able tolearn rom home. It saves the driv-ing time and money I was wastingbeore. Although I was uneasy aboutthe thought o online courses at rst,the hybrid program oered throughKU has put those concerns to rest, aswe are able to discuss and reect ourexperiences through the convenienceo our own home,” Rietzke said.“Students wanting to pursue amaster’s degree in educational ad-ministration can now apply to anationally ranked program with-out having to travel to campus on aweekly basis or traditional classes.Interested students can now balancetheir career schedules and am-ily responsibilities without having tosacrice either with multiple trips tocampus,” Novak said.Students who want to apply orthe new blended Master o Sciencein Education degree have until April1 to submit their application.

ST. LOUIS — The blanket o snowcovering much o the Great Plains atertwo big storms in less than a week mayprovide some relie or parched areas,but it’s no “drought-buster,” experts saidTuesday.States like Kansas, Nebraska andOklahoma have been among the hardesthit by the drought that at one point cov-ered two-thirds o the nation. Now, they’reburied under snow rom two storms justdays apart that dumped nearly 20 incheson Wichita, and more than a oot in otherPlains states.The snow may help ease the droughtsome, but it’s unlikely to have a big im-pact because it’s sitting largely on rozenground, especially in the upper Plains. Assnow on the surace melts, the water islikely to run o into rivers and streamsinstead o soaking into the rock-hardground.That’s good news or those who de-pend on the many rivers and lakes thatare near historic lows because o thedrought. But it does little to help armerswho need the moisture to soak into thesoil so they can grow plants, said BrianFuchs, o the National Drought MitigationCenter in Lincoln, Neb.Even i all the snow melted straightinto the ground, it wouldn’t break thedrought. A oot o snow equals roughlyan inch o rain, and parts o the Plainsare roughly 20 inches short o precipita-tion, Fuchs said.Texas could use a wet spring ater twoyears o drought. The state just had thethird-driest two-year span its history,getting just 71 percent o normal rainallin 2011 and 2012 combined.

Employers consider GPA,other factors when hiring 
Does your GPA matter ater yougraduate?his is a reoccurring questionamong students, especially as grad-uation nears. Students can striveor a high GPAor multiple rea-sons. hey may need a certainGPA to keepscholarships, toremain on anathletic team orsimply to proveto themselvesthat they cando it.Jose LuisMiletich, a junior romZaragoza, Spain,said he thinksthe importanceo GPA variesrom ield to ield. He said thatGPA may matter more or peo-ple working in a math or scienceindustry because they deal withmore technical things, but otherields may not be as crucial.“A high GPA shows that you putin a lot o work, but not necessarily your skills,” Miletich said.Candy Johansen, a non-tradi-tional student rom Hiawatha, saidthat she doesn’t ocus on gettingstraight As as much as always try-ing her hardest.“Why put the eort in i youaren’t going to try your best?”Johansen said.Some proessionals agree withthese students. Katrina Redding,outreach coordinator or theUniversity Career Center, said thata speciic GPA requirement or get-ting hired usually depends on thecompany. She said that regardlesso the situation, students should beprepared.“You always want to put yoursel in the best position,” Redding said.When looking or speciic quali-ties in newly graduated prospectiveemployees, Redding said that expe-rience is a big actor. She said thati a student can get an internshipor job related to their industry, theexperience can pick up skills thatemployers value.Patty Noland, career develop-ment coordinator or the School o Journalism, said that most employ-ers, at least in the journalism ield,don’t have a required minimum ora GPA. She said that internships,campus media and involvementwith student groups are key.“hey want well-rounded indi- viduals,” Noland said.I a student’s GPA alls below thenorm or their industry, they may be able to make up or it in otherways. Susan Davis-Ali, who hasa doctorate in clinical psychology and is the ounder o Leadhership1,recently said in a USA oday College article that students shouldleverage their network to the ull-est. She also said that she may bemore impressed with a 3.0 studentwho worked two jobs to put them-selves through college rather than a4.0 student who didn’t work at all.While some people tend toagree that GPA isn’t as crucial asother actors, others claim it is stillextremely important when apply-ing or jobs.Patrick O’Brien, author o Making College Count, recently said in a USA oday College articlethat GPA is particularly importanti a student is interested in workingor a large or mid-sized company.He also said that i possible, stu-dents should aim or a 3.4, and i that isn’t achievable, work or a 3.0or above.According to the Job Outlook 2013 Survey by the NationalAssociation o Colleges andEmployers, 78 percent o those sur- veyed said they will be screeningapplicants or their GPA. his wasan all-time high or the number o employers that will be screeningcandidates or GPA. his survey also showed that 63.5 percent o respondents have a GPA cuto o 3.0.Opinions aside, GPA is used tomeasure students’ abilities whilethey are in school. Graduationisn’t getting urther away, and GPAis still a actor when looking oremployment ater college.

the same kind o arts scene andmusic scene and those kinds o things as Lawrence does,” Stod-dard said. “his designation o adistrict is a way to sort o moreuniy our assets that we already have and perhaps create oppor-tunities in the uture.”he music scene is what setsLawrence’s downtown apart, ac-cording to Wichita reshmanAlex atro. Her avorite expe-rience to date was attending ashow at he Bottleneck in early October.“It has a wide variety o mu-sical options and places or that.It’s not like your typical down-town,” atro said.he diversity that downtownbrings to the Lawrence com-munity makes spending an a-ternoon people watching or anevening listening to outdoormusicians enjoyable activitiesor atro.“I like being downtown be-cause o the characters here,” shesaid. “here are so many dier-ent types o people who are all sounique.”Patrick Kelly, chair o theLawrence Cultural Arts Com-mission, believes the designationwill help downtown continue todevelop.“It allows us to ocus some en-ergies toward a speciic area thatwe think is a culturally viablepart o our community,” Kelly said.Kelly said a task orce will beappointed by the city commis-sion to determine the next stepsto enhance and preserve the re-sources downtown.he designation is somethingKelly eels solidiies the original-ity o the community.“Our students know that that’sa neat place in town with a lot o cool things going on, both down-town and within that area. It justsort o brands that area, identi-ies that area as being really cul-turally signiicant in Kansas and,I think, across the country.”

with Orchards Drug, L.C. “I don’tthink it would be wise to count onusing the morning-aer pill or aroutine contraceptive. It wasn’t in-tended to be used that way.”According to a study conductedby the CDC in 2006, 49 percent o U.S. pregnancies are unintended.Smith argues that a routine oralcontraceptive or an intrauterinedevice are signicantly less expen-sive contraceptives because thereis no co-pay under the AfordableCare Act.“It’s a stronger pill — doubleor more the strength o whatsomeone might be taking on adaily basis,” Smith said. “You stillhave some risk o clot problemsbut that’s moderate relative to therisk you might be taking i you getpregnant.”Te morning-aer pill is soldover-the-counter to women overthe age o 17 and generally costsbetween $35 and $65. Womenyounger than 17 must have a doc-tor’s prescription.
