Men on campus grow facial hair to raise awareness for male health

Gentlemen, ready your
mustaches.
Movember is a health awareness
campaign that encourages men to
grow out their mustaches during
the month of November. Not
to be confused with No Shave
November, Movember was cre-
ated to help raise awareness
for mens major health issues
like prostate and testicular
cancers.
Involvement
Students across campus
participate in Movember
for personal reasons or
simply to support their
fellow men.
Mason Moore, a
sophomore from
Highland Park, Ill., participates in
Movember in honor of family members
who have died from various types of
cancer. He began to grow his mustache
as a fundraiser for prostate cancer and
says it accentuates his personality.
The mustache has become a very
big part of my life and I want to sup-
port every Mo Bro I know, Moore
said.
Moore is the captain of his fundrais-
ing team, The Mo Bros of ZBT, the
Zeta Beta Tau fraternity on campus.
Their team has received $290 in dona-
tions so far.
Gordon Cave, a senior from Augusta,
has started to grow his mustache in
honor of Movember. Unfortunately in
his case, there isnt much hair in his
light blonde mustache and he said he
feels slightly creepy.
Movember is a good thing to have
that men can use to talk about their
health awareness, Cave said. If I see
another guy with a mustache during
this month, I might be more inclined
to believe hes using his mustache as a
way to promote awareness.
If Cave could grow any type of
mustache, he said he would want an
extremely dark mustache resembling
an 80s porn stars, but unfortunately,
he said, genetics prevent that.
the movement
Movember.com is the headquarters
for participants in the monthlong mus-
tache-growing competition.
The first step of joining the
Movember movement is creating a
Mospace on the website. Men are
encouraged to create a page and upload
pictures of their mustaches day by day.
Participants can create teams for
fundraising purposes and the amount
donated is constantly being updated on
the Mospace profile.
Creating a Mospace and sporting
a mustache for Movember is how one
becomes a Mo Bro. Mo Bros can sup-
port one another by complimenting
each others mustaches and inquir-
ing about their health.
the Facts
Prostate cancer is the most
common cancer among
American men after skin can-
cer. One in six men will be
diagnosed with prostate
cancer during his lifetime.
In 2012, about 241,740
new cases of prostate can-
cer will be diagnosed in
the U.S. and about 28,170
men will die of prostate
cancer, according to
cancer.org.
Testicular cancer
is a less common

SUA
code talker receives degree
Sixty years after he last enrolled
in a class at the University, Chester
Nez, the last living member of
the original 29 Navajo code talk-
ers who served during World War
II, received his diploma Monday
morning. Nez studied at the
University for three years under
the GI Bill until his funding ran
out in 1952.
Getting that sheep skin is a
wonderful thing thats happened,
Nez said, referring to the degree.
Its something that Ive been look-
ing forward to, and its finally hap-
pened.
During a ceremony held in Lied
Center Pavilion, Danny Anderson,
dean of liberal arts and scienc-
es, presented Nez with
his degree in fine arts.
Anderson praised Nezs
dedication to education
and his military service
before conferring Nez
with a diploma.
It is unfortunate that
KU was unable to help
Mr. Nez complete his degree
sixty years ago, Anderson said.
We have a new approach to schol-
arship support now that will enable
us to help students with finan-
cial challenges to complete their
degrees.
Mike Austin, a graduate student
from Lawrence, was glad to partici-
pate in the ceremony celebrating
educational opportunity
for minorities by lead-
ing the singing of the
national anthem and
alma mater.
Conferring the degree
symbolizes the shift in
attitude towards more
equality, Austin said.
It shows how far weve
come.
Degrees are rarely conferred
on former students without all of
their coursework being complet-
ed, said Sarah Rosen, vice provost
of academic affairs. But after a
monthlong process, the faculty
senate approved the degree based
on Nezs coursework completed,
extenuating financial circumstanc-
es and talents as a code talker
demonstrated during World War
II, Rosen said.
Nezs situation was first brought
to the attention of the University by
Kansas First Lady Mary Brownback
after meeting Nez at the Kansas
Book Festival in September.
Some of his education occurred
out of the classroom, and I think
it sends a message about how we
honor our vets, Brownback said.
And KU recognizes that.

Daniel Packard, love coach,
started Live Group Sex Therapy
six years ago. Packard has traveled
to around 200 colleges in the U.S.
with his show that is an interac-
tive and comedic lecture. Student
Union Activities will be hosting the
show in the Woodruff Auditorium
in the Kansas Union at 7 p.m. The
text-in poll questions have interest-
ing and unbelievable results, which
help people understand the oppo-
site sex a little better, Packard said.
Jenna Olitsky, Student Union
Activities special events coor-
dinator, said members of SUA
saw Packards show at
National Association for
Campus Activities and
decided to invite him to
the University. She said
that members couldnt
stop talking about how
funny and different he
was after they returned
from his show.
Students will take away love
and relationship advice, as well
laughs, Olitsky said. He answers
questions that people are too afraid
to ask, but since they are done
anonymously, they should not be
afraid to ask them.
Packards mission is to
make people laugh and
help students to look for
love with confidence.
Packard suggests that
people just own their love
life, either do something
about it or dont but dont
just stay complacent mak-
ing up a bunch of scary rumors
about finding it.
Packard said his degree is not
in psychology, but in engineering.
Packard started out as a comedian
but wanted to move from talking
about airline food to a topic he
cared more about, love. He ana-
lyzed his own struggles to find love
as well as those around him for the
past ten years. He spent the last
five years as a love coach, helping
mostly singles. Currently, Packard
is working on a Broadway version
on the show along with a TV show
called LoveLab.

KU students, members of the
community and womens rights
supporters flled Woodruf Au-
ditorium for Lilly Ledbetters lec-
ture, And Justice for All? Why
Equal Pay for Women Matters to
Everyone, last night in the Kan-
sas Union. Ledbetter, a womens
rights activist, fought against dis-
crimination and unequal pay in
the Supreme Court in 2006.
When you look at the issues of
pay equity, it is just so critical for
women, said Kathy Rose-Mock-
ry, director of programs at the
Emily Taylor Center for Women
and Gender Equity. Tat is the
essential component of womens
freedom, is being able to support
yourself with a livable wage.
Ledbetter talked about her
experiences facing discrimina-
tion in the workplace. She grew
up in a poor county in Alabama
and worked hard to achieve the
American dream., landing her
ideal job as a frst line manager in
production for Goodyear Tire &
Rubber.
Afer 19 years of service, some-
one lef her an anonymous note
that said she was making 40
percent less than the men work-
ing the same job and motivated
her to fght for equal pay. Tree
years later, her court case against
Goodyear made it to the federal
court and was overturned by the
Supreme Court in 2006.
Te law was on my side, Led-
better repeated throughout her
story of discrimination.
In 2009, President Obama
signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair
Pay Act. Te act addresses the
Supreme Courts decision and
Ledbetters fght for equal gender
pay.
Tis is critical that families are
paid fairly, Ledbetter said. Tere
are so many women out there to-
day who are struggling, working
two full-time jobs.
Te lecture was part of the Jana
Mackey Distinguished Lecture
Series. Te Jana Mackey cam-
paign advocates for victims of
domestic violence and supports
gender equality. Jana Mackey was
a former KU student and womens
rights activist who died in 2008
as a victim of domestic violence.
Her parents, Curt and Christie
Brungardt, started the campaign
to honor their daughter. Tey in-
troduced Ledbetter at the lecture.
Evan Traylor, a freshman from
Edmond, Okla., said the lecture
gave people information about
how they can fnd out about equal
pay and why this is an important
issue for everyone.
Equal pay is something we
dont really think about in this
day and age, but its defnitely
something that still happens and
continues to happen, Traylor
said. Not being paid for the same
work because of a diference in
gender isnt right.

kicked off its first Support
Movember campaign on Nov.
6. They will be taking pictures
of men sporting mustaches
and women wearing fake ones
today in Anschutz Library from
8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The goal of the campaign
is to break the stereotype that
men are too tough to go see
a doctor and get their annual
health checkup.
Ken Sarber, a public health
educator, said that students are
encouraged to take action and
responsibility, and participating
in Movember is a way to do so.
Final pictures can be taken
on Nov. 27 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
and Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 1
p.m. The photos will be made
into a mustache-shaped col-
lage that will hang in Anschutz
Library, the Kansas Union and
Student Health Services.
Students are encouraged to
sport their mustaches on Nov.
28 in honor of KU Mustache

Associated Press
JOINT BASE LEWIS-
McCHORD, Wash. Through
a video monitor in a military
courtroom near Seattle, Staff Sgt.
Robert Bales saw young Afghan
girls smile beneath bright head
coverings before they described
the bloodbath hes accused of
committing.
He saw boys fidget as they
remembered how they hid
behind curtains when a gunman
killed 16 people in their village
and one other.
And he saw dignified, thick-
bearded men who spoke of
unspeakable carnage the piled,
burned bodies of children and
parents alike.
From the other side of that
video link, in Afghanistan,
another man saw something else
signs that justice will be done.
I saw the person who killed
my brother sitting there, head
down with guilt, Haji Mullah
Baraan said Monday in an inter-
view with The Associated Press.
He didnt look up toward the
camera.
Baraan was one of many
Afghan witnesses who testified
in Bales case by live video link
over the weekend.
We got great hope from this
and we are sure that we will get
justice, Baraan said.
Prosecutors say Bales, 39,
slipped away from his remote
base at Camp Belambay to attack
two villages early on March
11, killing 16 civilians, includ-
ing nine children. The slayings
drew such angry protests that the
U.S. temporarily halted combat
operations in Afghanistan, and it
was three weeks before American
investigators could reach the
crime scenes.
Bales faces 16 counts of pre-
meditated murder and six counts
of attempted murder.
MEXICO CITY Two U.S. state
decisions to legalize marijuana will
have important implications for
international efforts to quash drug
smuggling, four Latin American
leaders declared on Monday.
Mexico, Belize, Honduras
and Costa Rica called for the
Organization of American States
to study the impact of the votes
in Colorado and Washington and
said the United Nations General
Assembly should hold a special
session on the prohibition of drugs
by 2015 at the latest.
It has become necessary to
analyze in depth the implications
for public policy and health in
our nations emerging from the
state and local moves to allow the
legal production, consumption
and distribution of marijuana in
some countries of our continent,
Mexican President Felipe Calderon
said after a meeting with Honduran
President Porfirio Lobo, Costa
Rican President Laura Chinchilla
and Prime Minister Dean Barrow
of Belize.
Marijuana legalization by U.S.
state governments is a paradigm
change on the part of those entities
in respect to the current interna-
tional system, Calderon said.
The most influential adviser to
Mexicos next president, who takes
office Dec. 1, questioned last week
how the country will enforce a ban
on growing and smuggling a drug
now legal under some state laws.
Mexico has seen tens of thousands
of people killed over the last six
years as part of a militarized gov-
ernment attempt to destroy the
countrys drug cartels.
President-elect Enrique Pena
Nieto has promised to shift the
governments focus to preventing
violence against ordinary citizens,
although he says he intends to keep
battling cartels and is opposed to
drug legalization. Guatemalas
president has advocated the inter-
national legalization of drugs.
VICTORIA FALLS, Zimbabwe
At least $2 billion worth of
diamonds have been stolen from
Zimbabwes eastern diamond fields
and have enriched President Robert
Mugabes ruling circle, interna-
tional gem dealers and criminals,
according to an organization lead-
ing the campaign against conflict
diamonds.
Zimbabwes Marange fields have
seen the biggest plunder of dia-
monds since Cecil Rhodes, the
colonial magnate who exploited
South Africas Kimberley diamonds
a century ago, charged Partnership
Africa Canada, a member of the
Kimberley Process, the world regu-
latory body on the diamond trade.
Zimbabwes eastern Marange
field one of the worlds biggest
diamond deposits has been
mined since 2006 and its vast earn-
ings could have turned around
Zimbabwes economy, battered by
years of meltdown and political tur-
moil, the group said. But funds from
the diamond sales have not showed
up in the state treasury. Instead,
there is evidence that millions have
gone to Mugabes cronies.
The report, released Monday to
coincide with the Zimbabwe gov-
ernments conference on the dia-
mond trade here in Victoria Falls,
casts a shadow over the Mugabe
regimes effort to win internation-
al respectability for its gem trade.
Government officials at the confer-
ence denied the reports allegations
as totally false.
Mugabe pledged that Zimbabwe
will soon have new law to ensure
greater transparency and account-
ability in order to boost the interna-
tional reputation of our diamonds.
Opening the conference, Mugabe
said his government is committed
to observing international laws on
diamond mining, storage and trad-
ing.
The report condemns the
Mugabe governments control of the
Marange diamond fields which have
made Zimbabwe a major player in
the international diamond trade.
Maranges potential has been
overshadowed by violence, smug-
gling, corruption and most of all,
lost opportunity, the PAC report
said.
The scale of illegality is mind-
blowing, and has spread to com-
promise most of the diamond mar-
kets of the world, said the report.

Puppeteer accused of
inappropriate relationship
NEW YORK The puppeteer who
performs as Elmo on Sesame Street
is taking a leave of absence from the
iconic kids show in the wake of allega-
tions that he had a relationship with a
16-year-old boy.
Puppeteer Kevin Clash has denied the
charges, which, according to Sesame
Workshop, were frst made in June by the
accuser, who by then was 23.
We took the allegation very seriously
and took immediate action, Sesame
Workshop said in a statement issued
Monday. We met with the accuser twice
and had repeated communications with
him. We met with Kevin, who denied the
accusation.
The organization described the rela-
tionship as unrelated to the workplace.
Its investigation found the allegation of
underage conduct to be unsubstanti-
ated. But it said Clash exercised poor
judgment and was disciplined for vio-
lating company policy regarding Internet
usage. It offered no details.
I had a relationship with the ac-
cuser, Clash said in a statement of his
own. It was between two consenting
adults and I am deeply saddened that he
is trying to characterize it as something
other than what it was.
Sex with a person under 17 is a felony
in New York if the perpetrator is at least
21. It was unclear where the relation-
ship took place, and there is no record
of any criminal charge against Clash in
the state.
Clash, the 52-year-old divorced fa-
ther of a grown daughter, added, I am
a gay man. I have never been ashamed
of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a
personal and private matter.
I am taking a break from Sesame
Workshop to deal with this false and de-
famatory allegation, he said.
Neither Clash nor Sesame Workshop
indicated how long his absence might
be.

Afer releasing several singles
over the past few years, Seattle
hip-hop duo Macklemore and
Ryan Lewis dropped their studio
album debut, Te Heist, in Octo-
ber. Macklemore is a Seattle-based
rapper who has been known
around the Seattle area since the
early 2000s, but in 2009, he gar-
nered tons of buzz when he and
his best friend/producer Lewis re-
leased Te VS., EP.
If theres one word to describe
Macklemore, its passionate. He
raps with great emotion and con-
viction throughout the album.
Macklemore is a very impressive
lyricist on nearly every track. He
ofen raps about subject matters
that other rappers wouldnt.
On Same Love, he lyrically
delves into gay marriage, religion
and homophobia in hip-hop. In
the track, he even remembers
when he questioned his own gen-
der preference when he was a kid.
Mary Lambert sings the hook, and
its easily the most passionate and
emotion-flled hook on the entire
album.
On the tracks Wings and
Trif Shop, he talks about mate-
rialism. He touches on fashion in
the latter, sharing his passion for
shopping at thrif stores. He even
compares clothes he bought at
thrif stores to high-fashion cloth-
ing like Gucci.
In Wings, he discusses sneaker
culture, talking about everything
from the price of the sneakers to
people actually getting killed over
them.
Ryan Lewis produced every
track on the album and for the
most part, its solid. Te produc-
tion on the album is diferent from
the typical rap album. Instead of
standard 808 drums, Lewis uses
an array of live music instruments
in his beats. He uses instruments
that you would typically hear in a
symphony like violins and pianos.
A majority of the beats that
Lewis crafed ft the concepts
Macklemore was aiming for per-
fectly. Te production does get
overly poppy at times on songs
like Gold and White Walls.
Both tracks instrumentals sound
like something straight out of Ra-
dio Disney. Nothing against pop
music, but those instrumentals
just dont ft the vibe of the rest
of the album. Te annoying in-
strumental on Gold completely
overshadows Macklemores mes-
sage. White Walls also features
a guest verse from Schoolboy Q
which feels awkward and out of
place.
Moments like these trip up
the albums pace but fortunately
doesnt take away from it as a
whole.

Unconventional lyrics
stir up rap scene
Its about time reality television
gets real. Adam Rifkin, the writ-
er, director, executive producer
and star of the new Showtime
series, Reality Show, whole-
heartedly agrees.
Reality Show is a darkly
hilarious satire that follows a
down on his luck television pro-
ducer, Mickey Wagner (Rifkin),
who is in desperate need of a new
hit to revitalize his career. The
eight episode miniseries focuses
on Mickeys criticisms of real-
ity television, which he claims
to be scripted, over-exaggerated
nonsense. He wants to let real
human behavior unfold before
the cameras, what he calls a real-
ity reboot.
Chris DeLange, a sophomore
from Olathe, said he interested to
see what direction the miniseries
will take. I was drawn to the
show because I really hate reality
TV and the popularity behind it,
DeLange said. I liked thinking
about reality TV from a different
perspective.
The production team puts an
unsuspecting American family
under all-encompassing surveil-
lance, monitoring them day and
night without their knowledge.
Aside from being completely ille-
gal, Mickeys master idea for cap-
turing truly candid behavior has
one flaw: reality can be boring.
Constant pressure from the net-
work demands more drama and
sizzle from the family, so the pro-
ducer decides to augment reality
himself by introducing obstacles
into their lives.
In the first episode, the family
embarks on their slow spiral into
chaos when the film crew hastily
decides to steal their dog. The
family responds with an after-
noon of searching and crying
exactly what the network wants.
As Mickey observes the drama
unfolding, he pushes himself and
the family to their wits end for
the sake of ratings. These small
disruptions escalate quickly and
cause a series of ripples Mickey
did not anticipate.
In an interview with Channel
Guide Magazine, Adam Rifkin
explains how he conceived
the idea for Reality Show.
Originally I didnt want to sati-
rize reality television because its
too easy of a target; like pro-
wrestling, its a parody of itself,
Afkin said. But when I explored
it from the view of people who
make reality television, the idea
shifted tone. It got darker, more
sinister.
As the series continues, the
unsuspecting familys artificial
trials of adultery, drug abuse and
career failure spin them further
into chaos, leaving fans wonder-
ing what will finally break the
newest stars of reality television.
Reality Show will continue to
air at 11:30 every Thursday night
on Showtime.

A
week has now passed
since the people of the
United States chose
to re-elect President Obama
for a second term. The grass
seems a bit greener, the air a
bit cleaner, and the nations
morale is on the up-and-up.
Weve got four more years of
Obama ahead of us, and were
going to make the best of each
one. However, what would
have happened if Mitt Romney
had been elected on Nov. 6?
Things would be very differ-
ent, my friends, very different,
indeed.
First off, the national budget
would already be miraculously
balanced, and the nations debt
paid in full. This was a huge
campaign issue, and something
Obama has been struggling
with since he came to office
four years ago. Our man Mitt
wouldve been in there fist fight-
ing his opposition and running
his enemies into the ground
with his bare hands.
We all know that Mitt has
had some issues in the past with
flip-flopping back and forth
on hot-button issues, but hey,
who doesnt change their mind
on abortion now and again?
Hes a simple guy, and thats why
hes so likeable, right? We need
someone whos going to listen
to the people of this nation, and
although Obama has quite the
set of ears on him, maybe were
better off with Mitt.
Children would be laughing
and frolicking outside in the
November sunshine without
the threat of insurgents invad-
ing their homeland, unlike
that awful looking Red Dawn
remake, thanks in part to Mitts
innovative initiative and upping
our militarys presence in for-
eign countries. You can bet that
before Romenys term would
be over we would be looking
at at least four new American
colonies in the Middle East. One
step closer to world domination,
reminding the world that, The
sun never sets on the American
Empire.
But wait, if Mitt had been
elected, could anything bad have
come of it?
Lets say Mitt goes a bit
power crazy and starts mak-
ing little amendments to the
Constitution. It starts slowly; a
correction here, a slight change
there, next thing we know
hes declared himself King of
America and theres nothing
we can do about it. All because
some senator thought the rider
he was adding to some new law
was just helping little Billy from
Hoboken, N.J., get to school
a little easier while his moms
off at work. How can we trust
someone to run our country
when he didnt even win his own
state in the election?
What would become of all
those stuffed into Mitts bind-
ers full of women? A group of
fringe youths bent on justice
would band together with their
iPads and smartphones and cre-
ate a movement like the world
has never seen before. They
would use their parents money
to drop out of state colleges and
tour the nation raising aware-
ness for these women, who
would become known as the
Women of Bindage, hoping
only to free them from Mitts
mighty mitts.
Either way you look at it,
there are pros and there are
cons. Politics are born of dissent
and disagreement, but were all
in it together. In short, I think
we all know who the real win-
ners are, and thats every state
but Florida, because for once
we all didnt have to wait for
our retired grandparents to fig-
ure out how to count the votes
before resting easy that the right
man made it into the White
House.

A
fter Hurricane Sandy
hit the northeast,
many Americans were
out of power and stranded for
days on end. What became
the main voice inside the
natural disaster was that of
social media, specifically
the platforms of Twitter and
Instagram.
According to news reports
from CNN and Mashable,
nearly 1.3 million pictures were
uploaded to Instagram. The most
popular hashtags that incorpo-
rated twitter with Instagram,
were #sandy and #hurricansandy.
These two in particular, gained
800,000 and 478,396 pictures
respectively.
Another big gain for Instagram
was with the hash tag #fran-
kenstorm which gained close to
forty eight thousand pictures.
Compared to other Instagram
explosions over the years, it is
easy to see that this was by far
the biggest one in recent memo-
ry. According to an article from
Mashable, the biggest one before
this happened at the Superbowl
last year where it was a measly
85,000 pictures uploaded with
the hash tag #Superbowl.
What this shows us in par-
ticular, is that with the power out
for much of the area, many news
organizations were not able to
show the rest of the nation what
is going on in the most affected
areas. The social media platforms
of Instagram and Twitter gave
these citizens the opportunity
to be the field reporters and be
the eyes and ears for a first hand
look of the damage. They say pic-
tures tell a thousand words, and
through all of these thousands of
pictures we were able to see first
hand narratives from families
and friends, to celebrities and
sports stars helping out the cause.
It was in moments like
these that we could really see
the heart behind social media
communities like Instagram,
Twitter, and Facebook. The
ability to connect with one
another and share pictures and
memories, even in the face of
tragedy, can at the very least give
us a little bit of hope. We get to
see communities on a regional,
national, and even global scale
sharing photos and support. But
this isnt where it stops. Along
with the community of sharing
pictures and status updates
comes along a community willing
to give to organizations that
are on the ground helping out
our fellow man in the affected
areas. Examples of texting to the
American Red Cross or tweeting
to the American Red Cross
gives citizens the ability to help
out those directly affected have
given us an inside look at how
we can use social media and our
technology to help those in times
of crisis and need.
Now, even though there has
been such an positive support
from field reporters posting
Instagram photos and tweets,
there has been some negativ-
ity. There have been numerous
reports of various people posting
photoshopped pictures or even
using shocking photos that were
not current. Even though it may
seem that these select individu-
als have been trying to ruin the
Instagram experience with crude
jokes and unrealistic photos, we
can be sure that the vast major-
ity of the images shown on
Instagram were truthful.
With all that said, we can see
that not every photo submitted
is of good, but at the same time
not all of them are bad. That is
the thing with social media, not
all is positive, not all is negative,
but with platforms like Twitter,
Facebook, Instagram, and
Youtube, we all have a voice, even
in times of crisis, as well as times
of peace.
Phillippe is a senior majoring in
American studies from Keller, Texas.
A
few weeks ago, I was at a
party playing the board
game LIFE with my boy-
friend and two of my best friends.
I have to admit I got a little com-
petitive about salaries and hoard-
ing LIFE tiles, but I love the fun
of the game anyway.
In retrospect, though, the path
on which I pushed my flimsy
green car, which my pink and
blue peg family kept falling out
of, seemed eerily reflective of how
society normally views the dat-
ing game: as a narrow path with
hardly any accepted alternatives
in which it is impossible to finish
without getting married.
Generally, we place value
on monogamy and put it on a
pedestal like its something to
be admired, desired and eventu-
ally achieved. While a successful
relationship resulting in a suc-
cessful marriage is many times
viewed as winning some sort of
dating game, we as young adults
who are entering the phase of
Are you getting married soon?
should take a timeout from ful-
filling our great aunt Whoevers
dreams of tying the knot, tarry
awhile and play the field when
we have the chance.
According to blog, Science
of Relationships, playing the
field, or casually dating a num-
ber of people simultaneously, is
an instinctual desire, especially
for men, because everyone has
an innate want to (ahem) pro-
duce offspring. This idea may
manifest more so in men because
they subconsciously want to mate
with as many people as they can.
Scientifically speaking, play-
ing the field makes less sense
for women because our role in
reproduction is much more dif-
ficult and complicated. Because of
this, women do not play the field
to the extent that men do because
they tend to be evolutionarily
disadvantaged by not having a
partner stick around to care for
the child in question.
Though society has evolved
from its former hunter-gatherer
ways, it still tends to view playing
the field and not settling down as
surprising, selfish, irresponsible
and borderline unacceptable.
But in our corner of the earth in
which reproductive and contra-
ceptive technology is advanced
and widespread, the risks of
dating multiple people at a time
who use contraception are much
lower.
So then I have to ask, whats
the problem? Instincts are strong
forces, but if our egos generally
keep us in check, why cant we
accept playing the field as legiti-
mate?
With that being said, I need
to clarify that I in no way am
endorsing playing a person, or
purposefully having someone
believe that he or she is the only
object of the others affection at
that time. What I am saying is
that playing the field can be a
rewarding experience.
In fact, if were newly single
or are thinking about entering
the dating scene again, match-
maker and author of the book Its
Complicated (But It Doesnt Have
to Be) Paul Carrick Brunson said
that playing the field rather than
settling down with one person
from Day One can be beneficial
to everyone because it allows
people to see and experience dat-
ing with a variety of individuals
and choosing between them.
This process makes us more
aware and opinionated about the
qualities we look for, both wants
and non-negotiables, in partners
and may make us wind up having
more successful relationships in
the long run if we eventually wish
the partake.
Finally, it is also beneficial,
Brunson said, because if youre
looking to settle down some time,
you need to know that those
potential partners are worth your
undivided attention. If they arent,
were better off going back to dat-
ing around.
Dating doesnt have to be as
narrow as a path as the one you
take in LIFE, so dont make it be.
Share an appetizer with a cute
neighbor at Tellers and score a
cocktail and flirt with someone
you just met at a bar. Everyone
needs to stop minding the nay-
sayers and start seizing the day
because whether you are eventu-
ally looking for something exclu-
sive or not, at least you can have a
good time getting there.
No matter what your dating
style, you may regret it in the end
if you dont.

1. Kansas
State (9-0)
Kansas State re-
mains No. 1 in the
Big 12 rankings and
holds the No. 1 rank-
ing in the BCS. Te
Wildcats must fn-
ish the season strong
against Baylor and
Texas to win the Big
12 and earn a spot in
the BCS Champion-
ship game.
6. texas
Christian
(6-4)
Texas Christian had
a rough week against
Kansas State. Te con-
clusion of the season
will still challenge the
Horned Frogs, giving
coach Gary Patterson
his frst full season of
experiencing the Big
12.
2. oklahoma
(7-2)
Baylor gave Okla-
homa a run for its
money on Satur-
day, but the Soon-
ers pulled through
with a win. Coach
Bob Stoops is happy
with the win and
wants his team to
end the season on a
high note in hopes of
playing in the Tosti-
tos Fiesta Bowl.
5. texas tech
(7-3)
Afer a nerve-
wracking double over-
time win against Kan-
sas, Texas Tech is still
in the top tier of the
Big 12. Coach Tommy
Tuberville is thrilled
with the success this
season, considering
the low expectations
the media had for the
Red Raiders.
4. oklahoma
State (6-3)
Even though
backup quarterback
Clint Chelf started,
Oklahoma State had
no problem outscor-
ing West Virginia.
Te Cowboys high-
scoring ofense has
elevated the team this
season.
7. west
Virginia (5-4)
Tere is not much to
say about West Virgin-
ia. Coming of a season
where the Mountain-
eers were victorious
in the Orange Bowl,
Geno Smith and com-
pany have moved in
the wrong direction.
3. texas (8-2)
Q u a r t e r b a c k
David Ash put up big
numbers against Iowa
States defense this past
Saturday and gained a
lot of confdence from
this game. Te Long-
horns best bet is mak-
ing it to the AT&T
Cotton Bowl afer the
regular season.
8. Iowa State
(5-5)
Iowa States gruel-
ing season can fip in
the fnal two games.
Te Cyclones are play-
ing Kansas and West
Virginia, both who
have struggled within
the conference. If
Iowa State capitalizes
against one or both
of those teams, it will
give them a boost be-
fore the season ends.
9. baylor
(4-5)
Baylor was in
position to pull of its
second conference win
of the season on the
road at Oklahoma, but
fell short. Baylor is not
favored to win any of
its fnal three contests,
but coach Art Briles
wants to go into the
ofseason with at least
one win against one
of the three ranked
teams ahead.
10. Kansas
(1-9)
Coach Charlie Weis
likes the efort he saw
from his players on
Saturday. If Kansas
can end the home
schedule with a win
on senior night, it will
mean a lot to Weis and
all the players afer a
long season.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. The
Big 12s attention is on Kansas
States national championship
dreams, yet there is plenty left to
be decided in the conference over
the final weeks.
Six teams are bowl eligible, with
Iowa State, West Virginia and
Baylor still battling for chances to
fill out the leagues bowl slots.
Kansas State (10-0, 7-0 Big 12)
can clinch at least a share of its
first conference championship
since 2003 with a win Saturday
night at Baylor. The Wildcats
moved into the top spot in the
Bowl Championship Series rank-
ings after Alabama lost to Texas
A&M.
Were just honored to be there,
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said
Monday. Im just going to encour-
age our guys to not change the way
we approach things and try to stay
grounded.
With conferences limited to two
teams in BCS bowls, four schools
from the Southeastern Conference
currently ranked in the top 10 will
be left out, opening chances for
teams like No. 13 Oklahoma and
No. 18 Texas. If Kansas State gets
the leagues automatic berth, the
Sooners and Longhorns would be
eliminated from consideration for
at-large berths with another loss.
Theres a lot of scenarios by
the end of the year for everybody,
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said.
Everybody wants to define it
already. Lets face it, everybody had
Alabama already going undefeated
and that didnt happen. So theres
a lot thats going to happen in the
next 2-3 weeks. Theres a lot of
scenarios.

T
hey call him Johnny Football. He
leads a top 10 team in the South-
eastern Conference. He makes plays
that are only seen in video games. Hes only
a freshman. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny
Manziel is quickly making a name for him-
self. Outside of his eye-popping numbers,
Manziel has been able to fnd a way to get
the job done. Whether its with his arm or
his legs, he has captured the nations atten-
tion, especially afer knocking of previous
number one ranked Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
One play against the Crimson Tide serves
as a microcosm for just what Johnny Foot-
ball has been so far this year. On third
and goal from the 10-yard line, Manziel
dropped back to pass against the Alabama
defense. With the pocket collapsing, the ball
was popped up into the air out of Manziels
hands. Calmly, Manziel tracked down the
ball, rolled to his lef, and found a wide-open
receiver for a touchdown.
It almost seemed like an early sign that
the Aggies would defeat the Crimson Tide.
Tere was a diferent feeling to that game.
Tats what Johnny Football provides.
Manziel is one of the most watchable
players in college football. He makes instinc-
tual plays that others simply cannot make,
and hes done it against the highest level of
competition. He has the it factor, the poise
and playmaking ability. And again I remind
you, hes just a freshman.
Make sure to tune in the next time Texas
A&M plays. You may be watching a future
Heisman Trophy winner.
BCS Shake-up on the horizon
Te BCS National Championship picture
could get interesting.
With just two weeks lef in the regular
season, the remaining undefeated teams
Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame face
a tough road to the title game.
Number one ranked Kansas State may
have the easiest track to playing for a BCS
Championship. Te Wildcats play a road
game at Baylor, and fnish the season at
home against Texas. Its hard to think the
most disciplined and well-coached team in
college football would slip up with a title on
the line. Coach Snyders boys will be ready
to go in each contest, and will also beneft
from not having a conference championship
game to play.
Second-ranked Oregon faces two ranked
teams in the fnal weeks and would face
another ranked opponent, either UCLA or
USC, in their conference title game. While
the Ducks have proved they can handle the
highest competition, they have no simple
task ahead of them.
Notre Dame has played superbly on de-
fense and well enough on ofense to main-
tain its unblemished record. Te Fighting
Irish could also beneft from not having a
conference championship game, but still
have to go on the road against USC to end
the season. Notre Dame appears to be on the
outside looking in, and would need some
help to sneak into the BCS National Cham-
pionship game.
Regardless of the outcome, any combina-
tion of the three would provide for an enter-
taining matchup. Oregon boasts the num-
ber one ofense while Notre Dame has the
number one defense, each based on points
per game. Kansas State is top 15 in both cat-
egories and leads the nation in turnover dif-
ferential.

Rose and hanson win
tyco Golf Skills challenge
PALM BEACH, Fla. Justin Rose
of Britain and Peter Hanson of Sweden
won the Tyco Golf Skills Challenge at the
Breakers on Monday.
Rose and Hanson, teammates on
this years Ryder Cup-winning European
team, beat recent U.S. Ryder Cup rivals
Dustin Johnson and Keegan Bradley in
the Reverse Scramble fnale on a breezy
day to secure the title.
It crosses your mind a little bit,
Rose said when asked if there was any
Ryder Cup feel during the fnal event.
The only Ryder Cup element would be
a teasing one, maybe a gentle joke or
something like that.
The Reverse Scramble went to two
tee-offs before being decided in a chip-
off. Hanson chipped to within 2 feet, 10
inches of the hole, beating out Bradleys
chip that was 3 feet, 6 inches away.
The biggest skill today was surviv-
al, Rose said. The weather was kind of
tough.
The other teams that took part in
the event were Zach Johnson and Kyle
Stanley, and Mark OMeara and Mark
Calcavecchia. The six skills were: long
drive, mid-iron, bunker shot, chip shot,
trouble shot, and short iron.
Hanson and Rose, making their in-
augural appearance at this event, only
won one of the six skills: the bunker shot.
They earned $285,000 in the made-for-
TV event that will air on NBC on Dec.
29 and 30. Johnson and Bradley won
$223,000 for taking second place.

Michigan States defensive presence in
the paint becomes too much for the Jay-
hawks and forces them to settle for jump
shots, which has become a trend for Kan-
sas early in the season. Kansas needs Jeff
Withey to score and if he cant get close to
the basket that likely will not happen. Get-
ting into the paint is a diffcult task against
the size and toughness of Michigan States
frontline of Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne.
They may practice in football pads
and helmets tomorrow, and our guys
want to practice with pillows.
Bill Self
Senior Forward
Kevin Young
Young returns to the Jayhawks line-up
after missing two weeks with a broken
bone in his hand. If he truly is healthy
and able to contribute, his energy will
be a welcome boost to a team that has
found its offense struggle at times to get
going.
Plenty of flm coming back, coach Tom
Izzo told the Detroit Free Press on playing
Kansas. (With) an 8- or 9-hour fight coming
back, well have a lot of ability to watch flm.
Well have exhibition games, some games
from last year, but going into it, (UConn was)
just too big of a game.
How will the Jayhawks respond
to the big arena atmosphere?
The four seniors all have extensive ex-
perience in big time matchups, but they
will also employ many players that have
never played on a big stage before. If the
young guys come out playing nervous,
the Jayhawks could fnd themselves fac-
ing an early defcit.

Elijah Johnson, Senior Guard
Johnson was the Jayhawks most disappointing
player in the season opener, scoring just four points
and fouling out of the game in 22 minutes of play.
The team wont be able to survive another game like
that from Johnson against a talented and aggressive
team in Michigan State.
Travis Releford, Senior Guard
Releford had a miserable shooting day against
Southeast Missouri State, making just three of his
11 shots; but what really hurt the Jayhawks was
his team-leading four turnovers, not something the
team wants to see from the guy they expect to be the
second ball handler on the court.
Ben McLemore, Freshman Guard
McLemore has shown his athletic ability on mul-
tiple occasions with his high-rising dunks. His ups
will be especially important for getting rebounds
against a Michigan State team thats bigger and
tougher than any opponent Kansas has faced this
season.
Perry Ellis, Freshman Forward
Ellis became the frst freshman to start the sea-
son opener for the Jayhawks since Xavier Henry in
2009; and he did not disappoint, showing his scoring
touch with 15 points. The Jayhawks will need Ellis to
be aggressive offensively, drawing fouls and getting
to the free throw line.
Jeff Withey, Senior Center
Withey will need to boost his physicality up a
notch against a tough Michigan State frontcourt.
While Withey will be the tallest player on the court
whenever hes in the game, the Spartans trot out a
pair of forwards that both outweigh the senior cen-
ter.

The Jayhawks enter their Champions
Classic game against Michigan State
coming off a win in their season opener;
however, the win was an ugly one that
saw the Jayhawks make just two of their
21 3-point attempts. When that game
is put next to a pair of underwhelming
exhibition games, its easy to see that
Kansas has a lot to work on throughout
the season if they want to compete for
their ninth straight Big 12 Conference
Championship.
Michigan State will be coming into to-
nights game jet lagged. They lost their
season opener at Ramstein Air Base in
Germany to Connecticut 66-62.Sophomore
guard Travis Trice, who led the Big Ten
freshmen in 3-point shooting percentage
last season, is unlikely to play against Kan-
sas due to concussion symptoms. Michigan
State is very similar to Kansas on defense
with strong perimeter defenders and a shot
blocker to protect the rim.

BiG JAy will CheeR if...
Keith Appling, Junior Guard
Junior point guard Keith Appling tends to play big in
big games. Last season he scored more than 20 points
against Duke, Florida State, Indiana and Wisconsin. Ap-
pling is in his second season of playing point guard for
Izzo and is Michigan States leading returning scorer. He
is quick, athletic and has the highest vertical leap on
the team. He is a tough defender who will attack the rim
on offense. In the game against Connecticut, Appling
scored 17 points with 4 assists and committed only one turnover.
Branden Dawson, Sophmore Guard
Dawson has very good rebounding instincts on both
ends of the court and is the leading returning rebounder
for Michigan State with 4.5 per game. He can defend
multiple positions due to his strength and length, and
has become one of the best defenders in the Big Ten. On
offense Dawson can get into the paint and fnish above
the rim.
Gary Harris, Freshman Guard
A 6-foot-4-inch freshman, Harris was a 2012 McDonalds All-
American. His offensive game is impressive. Harris will
stretch the defense with his deep shooting range and he
has good ball skills to go along with his athleticism. On
defense Harris could still beneft from some experience,
but he has the frame to become a good defender with
time. Tom Izzo recruited Harris out of Gary, Ind., away
from Big Ten rivals Indiana and Purdue. Harris mother,
Joy, was a WNBA player for the Detroit Shock.
Derrick Nix, Senior Center
Nix is a big part of Michigan States toughness and
physicality.The biggest strength for Nix is his wide body.
He uses it to play tough post defense and score in the
paint. Last season Nix ranked sixth in the Big Ten in
feld-goal percentage while scoring eight points per
game. He is 6 foot 9 inch, weighs 270 pounds and has
dropped more than 35-pounds since coming to Michi-
gan State. He plays below the rim with excellent post
moves thanks to his great hands and footwork.
Adreian Paine, Junior Center
Payne is an amazing athlete, especially considering his
size. He is 6 foot10 inch with a wingspan of 7 foot4 inch
and a vertical leap of 38 inches. He has a well-rounded
game including outside shooting, though he is still work-
ing to develop his range to the 3-point line. Payne is a
junior and is already just fve blocked shots from entering
the top 10 shot blockers in Spartan history.
Sophomore Guard
Branden Dawson
Sophomore Branden Dawson suffered a
torn ACL in March but opted to play without
a brace in the frst game of the season. The
decision paid off as Dawson looked as ex-
plosive as ever in his frst offcial game back
from surgery. He scored 15 points, grabbed
10 rebounds, had fve steals and played 34
minutes against Connecticut. Coach Tom
Izzo said after the game that Dawson played
well but his time off showed as he was less
productive later in the game.
The Jayhawks establish an early pres-
ence inside. Michigan State is a physi-
cal team, so Kansas must prove it can
take a punch and get back up early
on. Physicality was never missing from
the Jayhawks when Thomas Robinson
was down low, but since hes left, they
havent shown the same attitude

COUNTDOWN TO
Tis Kansas team is getting close
really close.
Te Big 12 win that has evaded
the Jayhawks for more than two
seasons has never looked more at-
tainable. Te coaches know it, the
players can feel it and now other
teams are beginning to worry
about it.
Afer defeating Kansas in double
overtime, Texas Tech defensive end
Kerry Hyder said it would have
been a big deal if the Red Raid-
ers would have lost to the Jayhawks,
but it may be time to abandon that
sentiment.
Yesterdays practice was as spir-
ited a Sunday practice that weve
had in quite some time, Kansas
coach Charlie Weis said on Mon-
days teleconference call. Tey can
see the light at the end of the tun-
nel.
Tats not to say the Jayhawks
dont have a long way to go, but that
light continues to get brighter.
Consider the fact that virtually
every college football enthusiast
knows that Kansas is going to have
to run the ball to be successful, and
yet no one can stop it.
In the last three games, Kansas
averaged 290 yards rushing. Even-
tually, Weis says, the passing game
will evolve. When it does, the Jay-
hawks backfeld will only become
more deadly. Tis is why Weis told
his ofensive staf that this year will
pay dividends.
You get into an ofseason where
you develop your passing game to
complement this running game
that youve been progressing all
year long, Weis said. Tat invest-
ment in the running game will just
make you that much better once
your passing game becomes more
efcient.
Te impending eligibility of
wide receiver Justin McCay and
quarterback Jake Heaps will cer-
tainly help. But that doesnt mean
Weis is going to sit back and wait
for the reinforcements to come.
As he has maintained all year,
Weis will not stay status quo with
a losing team.
Every week you do something
a little bit diferent, Weis said.
When a team gets into that rut
where they get used to losing you
have to make sure you have fresh
ideas every week so that the team
doesnt get stale.
Tere was nothing stale about
Kansas last Saturday. Weis even
said it was the frst time since play-
ing Texas that the Jayhawks Woe is
me attitude seemed non-existent.
Instead of waiting for something
bad to happen, Weis said the play-
ers were trying to make something
good occur.
It has been a heartbreaking sea-
son for the Jayhawks. Looking back
at games against Rice, Northern Il-
linois, Oklahoma State, Texas and
now Texas Tech, not much separat-
ed Kansas from a win in all of those
matchups.
For a team to be 1-9, I dont
think the team could be much
more confdent that theyre going
to turn the corner than they are,
Weis said.
Tis team is close, very close,
and they know it.

Unlike the last time the Kansas
mens basketball team faced
Michigan State in the Sweet 16 of
the 2009 NCAA tournament, when
the teams tip-off tonight at 6 p.m.,
the stakes arent as high and losing
the game wont mean the end to
one teams season.
That doesnt mean big-ticket,
early season matchups like the
State Farm Champions Classic
arent beneficial to the teams play-
ing in themthey give teams an
early test to see in what areas they
need to improve.
I think these early games are
something to kind of wake us up,
senior guard Elijah Johnson said.
Like the Kentucky game last year,
that was a game that woke us up
and showed us we werent as good
as we thought we were and we had
a lot of work to do.
A wake-up could be what the
Jayhawks need. They looked slug-
gish through their season open-
er, unable to knock down their
open three point attempts that
the Southeast Missouri State zone
defense allowed them.
The Jayhawks finished the day
just two for 21 shooting from out-
side the 3-point arc.
Michigan State will expose us
if we dont play well because theyll
make us be an execution team
because they dont give up easy
baskets, coach Bill Self said.
The Spartans give the Jayhawks
their first game against an oppo-
nent who likes to play tough.
Unlike the teams Kansas faced in
its exhibition season, the Spartans
have more experience playing
against tall centers like senior Jeff
Withey.
The Spartans also arent afraid
of making hustle playsgoing for
loose balls or crashing the rim hard
for rebounds.
This is an area of emphasis Self
has struggled to imprint on his
own players this season.
I dont think Ive done a great
job of getting the points through to
our guys yet, Self said. Toughness
isnt about physical strength, thats
a small part of it, but its about not
flinching, going after every ball
with two hands. Its about carry-
ing out assignments when you just
screwed up and youre worried
about it. Its about thinking next
play.
By playing the game in the
Georgia Dome, the Champions
Classic offers an environment most
teams dont see unless the advance
into the second weekend of the
NCAA tournament.
Something the older core of the
Kansas roster is familiar with, hav-
ing played four games in domes
during the teams 2012 run to the
NCAA National Championship
game.
Senior forward Kevin Young
thinks the key for his younger
teammates to make a smooth
adjustment to the Dome is that
they listen to Self instead of hav-
ing each player try to do his own
thing.
Hes been here before, hell be
here when they leave, he knows
what hes doing, Young said.

Coach Charlie Weis speaks at a teleconference to reporters. Weis is 1-9 for this season.
I
ts a spectacle not normally
seen in mid-November.
Its four of the best teams in
college basketball converging on
one arena for one night to show-
case their talents at the inception
of the season.
Just like last season in Madison
Square Garden, Kentucky, Kansas,
Duke and Michigan State will all
display their talents in the Georgia
Dome tonight.
All of these teams have similar
qualities that led to multiple Final
Four runs in recent years.
The coaches are all top-notch.
Each has at least one national
championship to display on their
resume.
Each team brings a different
dynamic to the table.
Michigan State has a gritty
toughness that allows the Spartans
to show off their physicality inside
the paint.
Duke exudes tradition led by
coach Mike Krzyzewski, who now
has two gold medals to go along
with his four national champion-
ships.
And of course theres Kentucky,
the team with the constant revolv-
ing door of NBA lottery picks
waiting to be plucked in next
years draft.
Their coach, John Calipari,
managed to do something no
other coach has even attempted.
He continues to try and bring
together different styles.
Hes both excited and angered
by the ESPN show All-Access
Kentucky. I watched it earlier this
year, and it truly was a spectacle
and something that will provide
Kentucky with more exposure (as
if they needed more).
Finally, lets talk about what
this game means for the Jayhawks.
Last season against Kentucky,
this game proved to be a precursor
to the national title game when
they met up in New York.
It might not end up with the
same implications this season,
but its still a chance to prove the
potential of this team.
Michigan State has been a
nonstop whirlwind since play-
ing Connecticut on Friday in
Germany.
Im not sure if it is an advan-
tage for Kansas to be playing a
team thats just returning from a
trip overseas, but they have to be
somewhat fatigued.
However, the Jayhawks must
show more efficiency on the offen-
sive end.
It would nice to see signs of the
offense moving in the right direc-
tion. Unfortunately, that wont be
the case against Michigan State.
With such a physical presence
from the Spartans on defense, this
game could end up in the 50- or
60-point range.
It will be an ugly brutal game,
but theres more than a chance that
the Jayhawks will win.
Putting a lot of stock into these
early season games is never a good
idea, but it does spark the interest
of the national audience.
So as all four of these teams
get ready to face off, enjoy watch-
ing two games that might be seen
again in March.
