Robert Czyz, a senior rom Chi-cago, didn’t look quite right or thepart o emcee or Jayhawk Jhalak,the South Asian Student Associa-tion’s annual talent show.Czyz’s emcee counterpart, Vi-raj Amin, a recent graduate romShawnee, even joked that Czyzwas the rst white emcee the tal-ent show has had.Even though Czyz doesn’t haveany South Asian heritage, he hasattended the talent show since hewas a reshman to experience aculture he hadn’t be exposed to.“You get to experience a dier-ent culture, hear dierent musicand learn rom it,” Czyz said.Czyz rst learned about theevent through Amin because thetwo were roommates his reshmanyear.Amin was a member o theSouth Asian Student Associationor the our years he attended theUniversity and is still active in thegroup today.“Tis is an opportunity orpeople to see a dierent style o music, ashion, dance and culturethat you wouldn’t normally see,”Amin said.Jayhawk Jhalak invited per-ormers o all types to showcasetheir talents to an audience at theLawrence Arts Center Sunday a-ternoon.Seema Patel, a junior rom o-peka, was one o those perorm-ers.Patel is a member o KU Je-eva, a competitive usion danceteam. KU Jeeva closed out the tal-ent show with one choreographedpiece eaturing several dierentstyles o dance mixed together.Patel perormed in last year’stalent show and said this year’shad a much larger turnout. “Jay-hawk Jhalak is important becausein America, we all come rom di-erent backgrounds,” Patel said.“Tis is a way to keep our culturealive.”Te show opened with the Law-rence Ki Lailas, a reshman danceteam, and then led into dance en-semble Papu Ki Lauv Story, andthen singer Anjeli Ravi.Te ashion show that ollowedRavi eatured ashion styles popu-lar in India, Bangladesh, Nepal,Pakistan and Sri Lanka.Aer a short intermission, therewere two singing acts and threemore dance acts to round out theaernoon. All o the dance per-ormers wore South Asian attire.Czyz said the talent show hasgrown immensely rom when herst saw it as a reshman.“It le a great rst impressionon me, and that’s why I keep com-ing back,” Czyz said.

Ashley Martin celebrated the“holidaze” this weekend withriends by relaxing in a mellow atmosphere. Te Shawnee sopho-more has smoked marijuana sinceshe was a sophomore in highschool. She has celebrated 4/20multiple times and said now it’smore o a chill thing or her to dowith riends who enjoy the samepastime as her.April 20, also known as 4/20, hasbecome a national day o smokingor weed enthusiasts. Martin saidthat she usually tries to ration outher stash to stay productive duringthe school week,but Saturday wasdierent. Shesaid she boughtmore and wantedto share with allo her riends.Martin is di-agnosed withobsessive-com-pulsive disorderand said that shethinks smoking helps.“A lot o the time I get anxiousand smoking helps calm me andmy thoughts down,” Martin said.Tere have been several rumorsabout how 4/20 started, but accord-ing to Hungton Post, the termtraces back to ve high school stu-dents rom San Raael High Schoolin Caliornia in the ‘70s.Te Waldos — a group o riendsnamed aer its meeting spot at awall outside the school — coinedthe term in 1971. Te article alsosaid all ve students were athletesand would meet up aer practiceeach day at 4:20 p.m. to smoke.Te term spread aer becoming acode or smoking within the group.One o the Waldos’ parents took care o real estate or the GrateulDead. Because o the connection,the Waldos had access to Grate-ul Dead parties and rehearsals.Steve Capper, one o the Waldos,said in the article that the teenag-ers would alwaysbe backstage andwould use thephrase. Cappersaid when some-one would pass a joint, they wouldsay “Hey, 4:20,”and it caught onthrough the com-munity.Marijuana useis illegal in Kansas, but that doesn’tstop people rom smoking. AmberBanks, a senior rom Broadview,Ill., lives at Naismith Hall.Banks lived in Corbin ResidenceHall her reshman year and saidthere weren’t very many times shesmelled marijuana in the dorm. Shesaid the Naismith RAs are more le-nient about their residents smokingmarijuana inside the dorm than theRAs at Corbin. Te residents know they’re lenient and aren’t araid, shesaid.Te procedure or discipliningresidents who smoke marijuana inthe dorms is an instant write-up.Banks said the rst write-up is ba-sically a warning, but two write-upsresult in 10 hours o community service.Banks said the RAs try not toconnect students’ parents on therst oense in order to teach themresponsibility.Despite the 4/20 holiday thispast weekend, Banks said she didn’tnotice an increase in marijuana usein the dorm.According to a national survey on drug use and health by the Cen-ter or Behavioral Health Statisticsand Quality in 2009, 26.9 percento Kansans between 18 and 25years old have smoked marijuanain the past year. O those surveyed,14 percent o the age group report-ed marijuana usage within the lastmonth, a 1 percent increase rom2008.About 18 percent o adults in thecountry between the ages o 18 and25 reported to have used marijuanawithin the last month, about a 1percent increase rom the previousyear.Douglas County is rankedamong the top-ve county leaderso marijuana possession in Kansas,according to an article on drug-science.org. Te report also saidthat marijuana made up 60 percento drug-related arrests in Kansas in2007.Nineteen states have legalizedthe use o marijuana or medicalreasons. Washington and Coloradohave legalized marijuana or recre-ational uses also, according to pro-con.org.Colorado law states that people21 and older may possess one ounceor less o marijuana and marijuanaaccessories or personal use, ac-cording to regulatemarijuana.org.Colorado residents may also grow up to six plants i the products stay on the premises they are grown onand are not made available or sale.Smoking weed in public places anddriving under the infuence remainillegal.Washington legalized possessionand distribution o marijuana o upto one ounce or less or adults 21and older, according to csmonitor.com. Smoking weed in public anddriving under the infuence also re-mains illegal in this state.

A building ormerly associatedwith the Cold War and nuclearweapons will be demolished thissummer as a casualty o the ongo-ing expansion o the University’sSchool o Engineering.Burt Hall, constructed in thelate 1950s, once served as the Uni- versity’s home o radiation andnuclear engineering programs. Itoriginally housed a nuclear reactoractive through the 1970s and thepeak o the Cold War.“Te engineering school andbiophysics departments here usedthe radiation sources rom themid-‘60s through the ‘70s,” saidMike Russell, director o the Uni- versity’s Department o Environ-mental Health and Saety. “Aerthat time, the school wasn’t really engaged in that kind o researchanymore, so the reactor was de-commissioned and the numbers inradiation programs curtailed.”oday, Burt Hall houses ocesor chemical and petroleum engi-neering proessors, administrativeoces and Rus-sell’s Departmento EnvironmentalHealth and Saety Services. Tosewith oces inBurt will move outto various loca-tions on Main andWest Campus by May 1.As a part o thestate’s initiative to increase thenumber o engineers across Kan-sas, the space that Burt leaves willbe occupied by a new acility thatwill wrap around the uture Ma-terials, Measurements, and Sus-tainable Environment Center andLearned Hall, according to Cody Howard, the School o Engineer-ing communications coordinator.Te new building is an experi-ment in the University’s innovative“ip classroom” learning. Studentsin the acility’ssix new class-rooms will sitat tables o ve colleaguesrather than atdesks to pro-mote collabo-ration on proj-ects and boostinormation-sharing. Stu-dents will also see a shi to lecturematerial posted online so that they can pose questions about the ma-terial in class.Te $80 million dollar project isset to open on campus in the allo 2015. An additional buildingdevoted to large-scale testing willbe completed on West Campus inthe all o 2014, all o which arepart o the School o Engineering’sBuilding on Excellence Initiative,designed to augment the numbero engineering graduates by 60percent.“Beore a bond issue on thisacility in 2009, we had a numbero engineering rms in KansasCity come to opeka and say, ‘Weneed more engineers’,” said Schoolo Engineering associate dean o administration JoAnn Browning.“In response to that, we have abouthal the unding or this new acil-ity coming rom the state.”Te Building on Excellence Ini-tiative is already underway as thenew Materials, Measurements andSustainable Environment Centerwill open next all to engineeringstudents. Modications to otherbuildings are also a part o this ev-er-evolving plan. Spahr Engineer-ing Library, ollowing the model o Anschutz Library, will devote moreo its resources to collaborativelearning, including more groupstudy space and availability o staf to help students with engineering-related problems.While nal design plans or thenew acility will be announcedMay 1, Browning encourages stu-dents to remain active in the plan-ning process through the build-ing’s completion.“We’re still looking at urnitureoptions,” Browning said. “We wantto know what chairs and couchesaround the building will help stu-dents relax and, yet, learn the best.We’re always looking or studentinput, because that’s who we’rebuilding this or.”

Engineering expansion to destroy Burt Hall 
Reusable water bottles is Envi-rons’ next step to save the planet —or, at least, the campus. Environs,the student organization dedi-cated to promoting environmentalawareness and activism, launchesits ake Back the ap initiative to-morrow night to move toward adisposable bottle-ree campus.Te initiative will provide inra-structure to sustainably providesae, ltered water with a termthat college students can relate to:ree stuf. Six hydration stationswill be implemented in the mosthighly tracked areas, includ-ing the Underground, Budig andAnschutz this all. Environs alsoplans to hand out thousands o stainless steel water bottles duringHawk Week to encourage studentsto carry their own water bottlethroughout the day rather thanpurchase bottled water.“It’s socially irresponsible o usto waste water and commodiy itthe way that we do when so many people don’t haveaccess to cleandrinking water,”said Sarah Kraus,a junior rom Al-len, exas andEnvirons presi-dent.Sustainability,Kraus said, is nopassing ad. TeCoca-Cola Com-pany allocated $3,000 to help undthe six stations and an additional$3,000 to help und the waterbottles. Te Oce o the StudentBody President has agreed to cov-er the remaining unds needed orthe hydration stations, which cost$1,700 each.Kraus wants to provide 6,000water bottles this all, but they would cost $17,000. She is cur-rently looking or an additional$14,000 to supplement the und-ing provided by Coca Cola. Eveni not every stu-dent receivesa bottle, Kraushopes their vis-ibility will en-courage othersto start carryinga reusable waterbottle and com-mit to a moresustainable liestyle.As only 20 percent o the 80million bottles o water sold daily in the United States are recycled,the bottled water industry createswaste that jeopardizes the envi-ronment. “Reduce, reuse, recycle,”is a slogan Kraus expects to hearmore as the public realizes the en- vironment’s saety benets thempersonally.“We’ve reached a pinnacle o unsustainable liestyles,” Kraussaid. “Tis is the initial responseto a problem we’re going to haveto be dealing with or a very longtime.”“apped,” a documentary ol-lowing the bottled water industry’sefect on communities and pro-duction rom ocean to landll, willbe shown at Liberty Hall on ues-day at 7 p.m., ree o charge. KUEnvirons meets every Wednesday at the Ecumenical Campus Minis-tries building at 5:30 p.m. Anyoneinterested in sustainability or en- vironmental issues is encouragedto attend.
