World icon Nelson Mandela, 95, died Tursday, but his influence on the world lives on.University journalism lecturer Malcolm Gibson met Mandela in 1993, while leading a team o newspaper editors on a act-find-ing mission in South Arica.Mandela introduced himsel to Gibson and it struck Gibson that Mandela didn’t walk around ex-pecting everyone to know who he was, even though they did.Mandela became an icon when he was imprisoned or opposing the apartheid in South Arica.He spent 27 years in prison be-ore being released and eventu-ally becoming the president o South Arica in 1994. Afer one term, he spent the remainder o his public lie as a South Arican ambassador.Gibson studied Arica as an undergrad and reported in the region, so he knew Mandela well, but afer spending three hours with him in a casual setting, Gib-son knew much more.“Tere’s a sense o serenity and peace around him,” Gibson said. He also noted Mandela’s sofspeaking voice that drew you to him.Not that you have to be an ex-pert in Arican Studies to know the name Nelson Mandela.“He’s one o the ew people that’s virtually known around the world,” Gibson said.
Students gather to search for 23-year-old University student Gianfranco Villagomez, who was last seen early Saturday.
For a moment late in the ourth and final set, the excitement took over and coach Ray Bechard raised his arms in the air as a missed Creighton kill landed wide. Tat put Kansas three points shy o its first ever trip to the regional round o the NCAA tournament. But just as quickly Bechard com-posed himsel or the next point, which was a kill by Creighton resh-man Jess Bird that bounced toward Bechard.When junior Chelsea Albers and reshman ayler Soucie combined or the block to end with a 3-1 Kan-sas victory, the coach enthusiasti-cally raised his arms once again. Tis time there was no doubt, his team was headed to the regional, a first or both Kansas and Bechard. Tis is Bechard’s fifh appearance in the NCAA tournament in his 16 years at the University.“I’m going to have to keep my composure,” Bechard said to his senior setter Erin McNorton as he prepared or a post-game press con-erence. In the third set o the match, with the teams tied at 22 and one set apiece, Bechard called a timeout. In that specific situation and that spe-cific score, he asked his team what it reminded them o; the answer was practice.“Every day in the gym we have a 22-all drill,” Bechard said. “Tey know they gotta play clean, they gotta play smart and they gotta play hard, because you get in a lot o sit-uations like that at the end o the game. Tat’s all I said and then I got out o their way.”Te Jayhawks lef that timeout and won the next three points, taking the set 25-22. Ten the momentum carried them to an early lead in the ourth set leading to the 3-1 victory.Te Jayhawks will play Washing-ton, the No. 3 seed, in Los Angeles on Dec. 13 or the regionals. But to a basketball guy like Bechard, this eels like the Sweet 16.“I’ve been at it quite awhile, and I guess i you stick around long enough, and these guys have let me stay here long enough, it’s going to happen eventually,” Bechard said. Soon afer Bechard and his play-ers lef the media room, Creighton coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth en-tered along with players welling up with tears. Bechard knows what that disap-pointment eels like. A year ago he was in the same position, here at Allen Fieldhouse. Kansas ended last season with 3-1 loss to Wichita State in the second round.“You know, it was tough last year to say the least,” Bechard said. “We didn’t orget that eeling. Tat’s what makes it so cool tonight.”Afer raising his arms in triumph, Bechard went into the stands to find the people that he most wanted to share the moment with. Tere was a section o about 30 people that Be-chard reserved tickets or.“I’ve got a lot o brothers and sis-ters and nieces and nephews in the area that I guess either love Kansas  volleyball or like me, I don’t know what the real answer is,” Bechard said. Harold Bechard, one o coach Bechard’s six siblings, drives rom Salina to see every match. He even drove to Wisconsin or a tourna-ment earlier this season. Harold has been a proessional newspaper reporter in Kansas since 1976, cov-ering Big 8 and Big 12 sports.Over the years his career has taught him to keep his emotions in check, but it’s different when he watches his brother’s team. Ten it’s personal. He becomes a an.Harold said he could see more emotion rom his brother on Sat-urday night as well, “he’s usually pretty calm.”“Just to see him get over that next hump,” Harold Bechard said. “Just getting to the next level really helps the program and it’s something he’s been striving or or a long time.”

Ekdahl Dining Commons, more popularly known as Mrs. E’s, is now meeting the needs o stu-dents with dietary restraints. A partnership between KU Chabad and KU Dining Services has made kosher ood an option or Jewish and Muslim students at the Uni- versity.According to Mark Maranell, general manager o the dining center, Mrs. E’s is now serving ko-sher meals to 50 to 100 people ev-ery Monday evening in the newly constructed “KYou Zone” in the dining center.In order to ensure a meal is ko-sher, the ood must be prepared in accordance with Jewish law. ra- vis Fell, culinary assistant manag-er at Mrs. E’s, explained the many ways that preparing a kosher meal is different rom any other.o start, utensils used or cook-ing kosher meals that have come into contact with meat may not be used with dairy and vice ver-sa. Utensils that have come into contact with non-kosher ood may not be used. Meat cannot be eaten with dairy and only certain parts o permitted animals can be eaten. Pigs and other split-hooved animals are not considered ko-sher, along with certain types o fish and birds. Te “KYou Zone” is ully equipped with various uten-sils to ensure the proper prepara-tion o kosher meals. Te recent renovation o Mrs. E’s and cooperation with KU Chabad presented an opportunity or KU Dining Services to expand on its kosher meals services, according to Sheryl Kidwell, assistant direc-tor o KU Dining Services. “Tis concept within Mrs. E’s provided us the ability, along with the Rabbi’s assistance, to buy, pre-pare and serve kosher meals rom this specific location,” Kidwell said. “We are starting small by offering kosher dinners on Mon-day evenings to gauge the overall satisaction and popularity o this pilot program.Rabbi Zalman o KU Chabad expressed his excitement with the new option at Mrs. E’s“Tis took hours o work with many technicalities, but it has been met with tremendous re-sponse,” Zalman said. “Tis has made it so much more accessible or Jewish students at KU to have an option where kosher ood is available.”Miriam Mechache, a reshman rom Minneapolis, is a student who keeps kosher.“I have been so blessed to have the KU dining staff be so accom-modating and helpul towards my (dietary) needs,” Mechache said. “I understand it’s a work in progress and I hope the program is successul so more Jewish and Islamic people can enjoy eating at E’s.”Although Mrs. E’s is intended or student housing, other students, aculty, and visitors can pay cash to eat at the dining center and try some o the new kosher options. Kosher hot dogs and other meals can be ound at a concession stand in Allen Fieldhouse and at the Market in the Kansas Union.

With finals looming ahead, test anxiety seems to take its toll on many University students. How-ever, in a recent ED talk, psy-chologist Kelly McGonigal went over a Harvard University study that ound when telling partici-pants to view their stress response as helpul, they were less stressed.Afer viewing the ED talk or hersel, Dr. Myra Louise Stroth-er, a amily physician at Watkins Health Center who specializes in mental health issues, gave her opinion in hopes to help ease stu-dents stress.“We create stress. Outside events certainly influence it, but it’s how each o us processes that stress that determines in what way it will affect us,” Strother said. “Use the positive ocus o stress to priori-tize.”When your body experiences stress, it causes your blood pres-sure to rise and makes your heart rate aster. Tis creates more blood flow to your brain, which then in-creases your ability to ocus. How-ever, as Dr. Strother explains, this is only good at a controlled level.“Fear is the strongest human emotion, so you have to be careul how you use it. Use the power o stress to ocus and not to terrorize yoursel,” Strother said.Strother explained other actors that help make the body view stress as either something positive or negative. Te more sugar, ca-eine and energy drinks you con-sume the aster your ocus will go down, and thus can oster the bad effects o stress.“oo much sugar, caffeine and energy drinks actually become distracting and make you lose ocus,” Strother said. “It’s import-ant to eat proteins and complex carbs beore studying or taking a test. Tese give you the most even release o blood sugar that helps your brain unction.”Students commonly experience test anxiety when they first start taking a test. Strother encourag-es students to “relax and realize you’re going to get through it. Your anxiety will come down as you’re taking the test. Come back to things you couldn’t ocus on at the beginning beore you turn in your final.”Despite the common consensus among University students, pull-ing all-nighters at the library can actually do more harm than good. Strother said that there is such a thing as too much studying.“Your brain can only study or so long. You will not do as well i you exceed 1.5 hours o studying at a time,” Strother said. “Break up studying. Go work out, call a riend, or hang out with someone. Tis brings your oxytocin levels up, and helps you put things into perspective. Good studies show that exercising pushes new oxygen to the brain, and a new ocus will come back.”Alex Beer, a sophomore or Dal-las, recalls a time where he ound stress was motivating“Last year, I had two finals on the same day. I was so stressed out I wanted to crawl into bed and give up,” Beer said. “But afer moping, I studied and kicked those tests to the curb because I was driven.Lastly, Dr. Strother reminds stu-dents to “get your stress up just to ocus, but not to get in the way o studying. Give yoursel the reaffir-mation you can do it.”

Most people have heard Man-dela’s name or are amiliar with his words, but Gibson said that everyone should know Man-dela and students in particular should remember him, even though many o them weren’t alive during his imprisonment or able to see his influence in the civil rights movement.“You don’t have a Nelson Mandela o your generation,” Gibson said. Tat’s why it’s es-pecially important or us to re-member him.His influence not only affect-ed South Arica, but the world.“Nelson Mandela has affected your lie,” Gibson said. “He’s a-ected the lie o everybody on this campus in ways you don’t understand.”Gibson said that the ability to associate reely is, in many ways, a direct result o Man-dela.Mandela influenced every person in the world in some way and Gibson said he’s araid that young people may not rec-ognize his influence.Just by being there, Mandela was a symbol o reedom, even while he was imprisoned, Gib-son said.“We should all be, not sad about his passing, but we need to recognize how important it was that he was here and what he did in his lietime,” Gibson said.

University launches two-week courses over break 
While many students may be working or catching up on sleep during the semester break, a hand-ul o journalism students will be  virtually raising their hands rom Dec. 30 to Jan. 24 in the first on-line, minimester courses in the University’s history. Many other schools around the country have interterm classes, but they have never beore been o-ered at the University, until now. “We are moving in the direction o offering minimester courses cam-pus-wide,” said Sara Rosen, senior  vice provost or academic affairs.Te School o Journalism has been working on this idea since the beginning o the semester, and it has finally become a reality. “Te idea o the minimester is to provide short, intensive courses at times when students can either pick up a needed course, explore new areas including experiential learning opportunities or pick up a short course that will prepare them academically or the next set o courses,” Rosen said. Both “Visual Storytelling” and “Multimedia Web Development” were careully selected to measure i a required course or an elective course would be more successul. Much to their surprise, “Visual Storytelling,” the required course, filled the day afer it opened, and “Multimedia Web Development,” the elective course, filled 13 days afer it opened, said Kelli Nich-ols, assistant dean at the School o Journalism.Both courses may be popular but their course styles are very differ-ent. “Multimedia Web Develop-ment” is a course that has been created rom the ground up and allows students to help develop the course as well.Tis class will create a mobile website or the School o Jour-nalism to supplement the current desktop website. Students will meet virtually online through Adobe Connect where they will be able to screen grab Associate Proessor Doug Ward’s screen, press a button to raise their hands and also message back and orth, among other things.Since all students may not be in the Lawrence area, they will take a poll to decide when to do live sessions with the class as a whole and will also poll what career fields students want to participate in, since the class will be group-proj-ect based. Tis class will help with the abili-ty to collaborate online, Ward said. He believes collaborative team-work with a client (the school’s public relations department) re-flects where uture journalism ca-reers are going.Sara Anees, a junior rom Wichi-ta, will assist Ward as well as attend the class. She has been drafing a proposal or the mobile site and also collecting photos and videos that may be used or the website as well.“I think that it will be nice to work on a project that is interest-ing without having as many obli-gations,” Anees said.Unlike “Visual Storytelling,” “Multimedia Web Development” will be asynchronous — where students work on their own time compared to getting online at the same time.Tis class is offered in the regu-lar 16-week online course and also condensed in the 8-week online summer course. Michael Williams, associate proessor at the school, understood it could be condensed yet again and only had to cut back on one assignment in order to do so.Even though both 16-day cours-es may be rather intense, both minimester proessors and Dean Brill aren’t worried about journal-ism students. But they understand students will need to stay ocused and motivated.It is part o the University’s goal to prepare students or what the working world is like, because in that world, it is unrealistic to have a five-week break. Brill said the school needs to think, “How can we better model what will be the working environ-ment or people?” Kimberly Kaehn, a senior rom Dallas, will take “Multimedia Web Development,” during the min-imester since she will be working as a marketing intern or Peoples Bank in the spring.“I enrolled in the course hoping that it will better prepare me or the internship,” Kaehn said. “I will have more time in the spring to o-cus on school, my internship and applying to entry-level jobs.”Te two minimester courses at the School o Journalism were made possible through a collabo-ration o work since early all with the school’s staff, Academic Affairs staff, the Center or Online and Distance Learning, Inormation echnology, the Office o Univer-sity Registrar, Bursar’s office, and also Financial Aid.Both classes’ success will be mea-sured through evaluations and stu-dent eedback while participation will be measured through online log time. But as o right now, both minimesters have been initially successul based on sheer desir-ability.

OPEKA, Kan. — Te cam-paigns o U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts and the Kansas Republican’s primary challenger are sparring publicly over ethics issues, increasing the acrimony in their already conten-tious race.Roberts’ executive campaign manager, Leroy owns, filed a complaint last week with the Sen-ate Ethics Committee against chal-lenger Milton Wol because Wol hasn’t yet filed a required financial disclosure orm. owns asked or an investigation, saying that Wol’s missing a 30-day deadline to file the orm raises questions about whether voters can trust him.But Wol spokesman Ben Hart-man said the challenger will file the orm soon, within a grace pe-riod that’s typically given to new Senate candidates. Ten, the Wol campaign cited 16 instances since 2000 in which the Federal Election Commission questioned items in Roberts’ campaign finance reports.Wol’s campaign also accused Roberts o abusing his seat on the Senate Ethics Committee in an at-tempt to intimidate his challenger. owns said there’s nothing to the allegation and accused Wol o be-ing willing to “make acts up.”Roberts, 77, is seeking his ourth, six-year term in the Senate and has worked in Washington as either a congressional aide or a member o Congress or nearly a hal-century, a career that had made him an icon in Kansas GOP circles. But Wol, a 42-year-old Leawood radiologist, is running as a tea party candidate and attacking Roberts as a career politician. Te primary is in Au-gust.Hartman said owns’ complaint was “an attempt to get a cheap headline.”“It shows that they recognize that Senator Roberts has some very large vulnerabilities,” Hartman said. “It shows that they’re not go-ing to campaign on the issues.”But owns, a ormer Ethics Com-mittee staffer, said the complaint is serious. owns said the commit-tee’s rules will require Roberts to remove himsel rom the case i the panel investigates Wol, adding that the complaint was filed with the panel because that’s the appro-priate venue.Te complaint said Wol is re-quired to file the disclosure orm, listing income and their assets “to provide the public an accurate as-sessment o his financial status.” Te Roberts campaign added in a statement, “ransparency and trust are two o the most import-ant aspects o public service.”Federal law requires a congres-sional candidate to file the dis-closure orm within 30 days o becoming a candidate, and Wol filed a statement o his candidacy on Oct. 23, making the deadline Nov. 22.Te same ederal law says that candidates who file their reports more than 30 days afer their deadlines must pay a $200 penal-ty. Also, the committee can grant extensions o deadlines o up to 90 days, and Roberts himsel received such an extension last year, accord-ing to records available online.
