William Tobin, a 19-year-old sophomore marketing major from Chicago, died of craniocerebral injuries on June 2 after a fall near DePaul University, according to whiotv.com. Daniel Arnold, a senior pre-medicine major and honors student from Gahanna, Ohio, died June 5 at age 21 from complications following a May 26 canoe accident in the Little Miami River. Arnold was canoeing with friends on the river in Warren County, Ohio, when he upended his canoe and hit his head on a rock. He was found unresponsive and flown by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital where he died, according to whiotv.com. Edward Brown, a senior communication major from Mt. Laurel, N.J., died on Aug. 3, at age 22. Flyer News could not officially confirm the cause of Brown’s death by the time of publication. -------------------Bill Tobin Tobin was known as an outgoing person who was liked by many, according to his roommate Kevin Sobkoviak, a sophomore political science major. “Most outgoing, charismatic guy there was,” Sobkoviak said. “He was a really great guy to hang out with. Everyone loved him. It’s been a wake-up call to all of us and all his friends here. He had a ton of friends at UD.” Sobkoviak and his two sophomore roommates, psychology major Jeff Salemme and business major Mike Collins, said they were looking forward to living with Tobin in a four-person suite in Virginia W. Kettering Residence Hall this year. Tobin’s friends decided that it would be fitting to Tobin’s memory not to have a fourth roommate live with them this year in place of their friend, Bill. -------------------Danny Arnold Arnold gained early acceptance to the School of Medicine at Wright State University earlier this year, according to The Columbus Dispatch. He was engaged to Carol Harper, a senior education major, and the couple planned to marry in June. “He was the most selfless person I’ve ever known,” his father, Kevin Arnold, said. “Danny was so giving of himself. He had great direction and a bright future, but he worked just as hard to push other people to that point, as well.” Arnold’s father said the support and offering of condolences from the UD community has been instrumental in helping the family get through their loss. University students and professors joined Arnold’s mother, Kathy Arnold, and younger siblings Michael and Alison for daily visits at Miami Valley Hospital during Arnold’s final days.

CONTRIBUTED BY TOBIN AND ARNOLD FAMILIES Arnold’s bedside and said he was a gift to the university community and the honors program. “His dedication to scholarly inquiry and leadership served, and always will serve, as an example that all students should try to emulate,” Darrow said in an email to Flyer News. Kevin Arnold said his son’s legacy will also be preserved through Danny’s Day, an annual service day that will bring community members together on the fourth Saturday of every June for prayer, service and a community potluck as a celebration of Arnold’s life. He also said scholarships at Arnold’s high school and UD have been set up in his name to perpetuate his son’s legacy of giving. Harper organized a 5K run in an effort to raise money for the Daniel P. Arnold Memorial Scholarship, which benefits the honors program. Information about the planned Sept. 30, run is available in the University Honors Program offices at 125 Alumni Hall. -------------------Eddie Brown Friends from as far away as Tennessee gathered Aug. 8 in New Jersey for Eddie Brown’s funeral. Former Flyer News editor and 2012 UD graduate Seetha Sankaranarayan said Brown spoke often about his love of radio and music. Brown wrote for Flyer News during Sankaranarayan’s tenure as arts and entertainment editor. “I feel very fortunate that I was able to know him both personally and as a member of the student newspaper,” Sankaranarayan said. “He looked out for people and was always there for them. At the root of it, Eddie was full of great intentions and what has happened is unfortunate.” Justin Guinn, also a former Flyer News editor and 2012 UD graduate, said Brown was the life of the party. “He was always that guy who got the troops rallied,” Guinn said. “I was fortunate know him freshman year all the way to senior year. He was one of those underground guys in Founders. He was a great guy. Cool. Loyal as can be.” Eileen O’Connor, Brown’s girlfriend of a year, said she’ll always remember him having a big smile on his face, one that could light up a room. She’ll also remember his ability to make others laugh. “Eddie had a great sense of humor,” she said. “He could always make everyone laugh.” Brown was planning to move to Chicago after graduation. His friends have expressed interest in holding a memorial service for Brown on campus sometime in the coming months. New look.

News Editor The University of Dayton China Institute opened Aug. 8 in Suzhou Industrial Park in Suzhou, China. Ceremonies were held to celebrate the opening and included performances by University of Dayton students and faculty, according to a university press release. University President Dr. Daniel Curran said over 100 dignitaries, including Suzhou Park leaders and former Ohio Gov. Bob Taft, were present along with other audience members. Located near a third of the world’s Fortune 500 companies, Curran said UDCI’s location promotes potential professional relationships to benefit the institute, UD students and industries. Current companies involved with institute research projects include General Electric, Emerson, Eli Lilly, Makino, Ethicon and Delphi, according to Philip Doepker, UDCI coordinator for industrial and technical relations. An invitation from SIP to open a facility in China gave UD the opportunity to conduct research and product development for the surrounding industries, Curran said. Although UD’s study abroad programs are extensive, Curran said UD’s previous work with American industries located in SIP will create an even stronger global presence. “With UDCI, we intend to build our international reputation, allowing for academic and employment opportunities for UD,” Curran said. “We are striving to create a platform for excellence for our students and faculty.” Weiping Wang will serve as the executive director for UDCI. Knowledge of Chinese and Jiangsu provincial law expedited the development of the institute, Curran said. Through studies in Australia and China, Wang understands the importance of global connections and intercultural experiences, he said. “I believe UDCI is going to be a home for the China Initiatives,” Tina Manco Newton, the associate director for partnership and exchange for the Center for International Programs, said in an email to Flyer News. “With the leadership of Dr. Wang, [UDCI] is well positioned to take our relationship with China to a whole new level.” As company engagement efforts continue, linking students with future employers through “Hire a Flyer” is a main priority. An international experience proves beneficial to successful employment in the current economy, according to Doepker. “The collaboration work we are doing at UDCI will have a big impact on the multinational companies we are helping,” Doepker said. “We are hoping to involve UD students through courses, internships and co- The opening of the University of Dayton China Institute was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony, Aug. 8, in Suzhou Industrial Park in China.

A Marianist heritage center is on the second floor to inform students and faculty about UD’s mission, according to the UDCI press release. In addition to professional connections, partnering academic institutions include Nanjing University, Shanghai Normal University, Zhejiang University and others, according to the UDCI web brochure. Curran said the Middle East and Europe are potential locations for future UD institutes. “We need to enlighten our students with a global perspective,” Doepker said. “Our current global economy tells us there are no boundaries and we need to penetrate such an open market.” For more information on UDCI, go to http://bit.ly/SoMan1. Brown Street construction continues to affect local businesses chris crisanti Lead News Writer Business owners near the University of Dayton said the construction on Brown Street has affected profits. The city of Dayton’s construction project on Brown Street began north of Stewart Street to Wyoming Street in March, Beth Keyes, vice president of facilities management, said. Additionally, the work south of Stewart Street to Caldwell Street started in May, closed June 5, and temporarily re-opened Aug. 17, according to Keyes. “After the UD move-in, there will be various lane closures later in the fall to complete paving, pole work and sidewalk work in this section, as will work north of Stewart and at the Stewart intersection continue,” Keyes said. “The work south of Caldwell Street to Irving Street, however, will continue through November.” Construction has been an obstacle for local businesses, according to Smashburger manager Ashley Schweitzer. Current Smashburger sales have shown a loss of $1,000 compared to last summer, she said. Along with restaurants, retail businesses on Brown Street have also been affected by the road modifications. Keri Crist-Wagner, manager of Flyer Spirit, said people were unaware the store remained open in the summer while construction continued because accessibility was limited. As a result, the sales at Flyer Spirit have declined, according to Crist-Wagner. Over the past two years, sales have been high during move-in weekend, she said. Although Brown Street has been under construction during the last six months, many are expecting the benefits to outweigh the obstacles of the construction upon completion of the project. Keyes said the long-term goal of the Brown Street construction project is to provide a safer and more attractive route for our faculty, staff and students to travel. According to a Flyer News article, Cars line Brown Street as construction continues to slow traffic at the road’s intersection with Stewart Street, Saturday, Aug. 18. ETHAN KLOSTERMAN/MANAGING EDITOR. the Brown Street construction project will cost the city $4.4 million, ending August 2013. However, the completion date has been pushed further to November 2013, according to the City of Dayton’s website. The construction has also been an inconvenience for some UD students during move-in weekend. Max Feldmann, a sophomore majoring in fine arts and living in Virginia W. Kettering Hall, said drivers have been traveling at slow speeds near campus. “The construction makes driving difficult because most people eventually have to pass Brown Street to get to UD’s campus, especially when exiting Interstate 75,” he said. For UD employees and those working on Brown Street, the ongoing construction has affected commutes to and from the workplace. “Personally, I work in the College Park Center and getting back and forth to the eastern half of campus has been at times challenging and requiring more time,” Keyes said. “The CPC has probably been the most affected facility because of the many employers.” NEWS 4 flyernews.com FLYER NEWS | Friday, August 24, 2012 ArtStreet names Brian LaDuca as new director MEGAN O’MERA Staff Writer Brian LaDuca, former executive director of the Bailiwick Chicago Theatre company and managing director of the Theatre and Performance Studios at the University of Chicago, was recently hired as the new director of ArtStreet. LaDuca will lead the programs, activities and operations at ArtStreet’s housing facility, visual art studio and gallery, music rehearsal studios, indoor performance spaces, amphitheatre, screening room, classroom spaces, recording studio and café. LaDuca’s hire concluded a nationwide search that began this past April to replace the previous director, Susan Byrnes, who relocated to Cincinnati. He said he aims to bring new energy and ideas to the fine arts at UD. He said he wants to give ArtStreet a stronger presence on campus. “I want [ArtStreet] to be a hub of life,” LaDuca said. “I want the neighborhood to be influenced by the beaming light that is ArtStreet.” LaDuca was selected because of his experience in both producing his own art and teaching art to others, said the search committee’s co-chairs Amy Anderson, director of the Center for International Programs and Eileen Carr, the Arts Series coordinator. The committee was made up of 10 people who represent a wide variety of disciplines and groups at UD, including visual arts, physics, ATTENTION WRITERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS! music, Flyer Enterprises and the offices of multicultural affairs and student development. “Students will notice that [LaDuca] has an exceptional level of energy, always has a smile on his face, is always interested in welcoming students’ input, and is completely excited about being at UD,” Carr said. LaDuca’s admitted passion for the position and his impressive resumé set him apart from other applicants, said search committee member Sean Holdmeyer, a senior operations management and leadership major and CEO of Flyer Enterprises. LaDuca’s vision to utilize his network and theatre experience from Chicago to develop ArtStreet made him an attractive candidate, Holdmeyer said. LaDuca holds a master’s degree in directing for the state and screen from the Johnny Carson School of Theater and Film at the University of Nebraska and a bachelor’s degree in performance studies from the University of Illinois. He is an associate member of the Society of Directors and Choreographers and former managing director of the nation’s oldest college theatre program, the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. “I’m extremely excited to see what he will bring to ArtStreet, the University of Dayton, and even the city of Dayton as a whole,” Holdemeyer said. LaDuca said he aims to integrate a wide array of disciplines Contact: [email protected] and interests into ArtStreet’s programs including history, the sciences and foreign cultures. He said achieving this goal would allow an educational experience through artistic expression. One of many ways to reach this multidisciplinary objective, he said, could be selecting a theme for ArtStreet that coincides with an undergraduate history class’s curriculum. ArtStreet would then produce food, music and art displays according to given theme. “Susan Byrnes will be missed, but we’re lucky to have found such a great replacement,” said ArtStreet events coordinator and senior marketing major Annie Boone. “It’ll be fun to hold some new events we’ve never done before.” LaDuca said he believes no boundaries exist for ArtStreet’s potential to influence the community. “I’m looking forward to the untapped energy,” he said. “It seems like there’s this hunger for big, outside the box thinking. For me, that’s all it is, man. Let’s shoot for the stars.” To learn more about ArtStreet, visit www.udayton.edu/artstreet. Oldest vowed religious man passes away at 103 KaYLEIGH fLADUNG Asst. News Editor Flyer News is looking for new members! Brian LaDuca poses for a portrait, Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012, at ArtStreet. The Chicago native is beginning his first year as director of all ArtStreet operations. EThan Klosterman/mANAGING eDITOR Brother Frank Deibel, S.M., the nation's oldest vowed religious man, passed away July 30 at Mercy Siena Gardens, a retirement community and assisted living facility, in Dayton. Deibel was just weeks away from turning 104 and celebrating 86 years since first taking his vows into the Society of Mary. Deibel worked at the University of Dayton’s libraries until moving to Mercy Siena in 2003. He was known for his love of people and kept in touch with more than 100 friends through email. “He had a very positive spirit, a child-like quality that everyone loved,” said Father Thomas Schro- er, former director of the Marianist community at Mercy. Deibel was born in Columbus, Ohio, in 1908. He attended the Marianist Postulate at Mount St. John, a school for boys interested in becoming Marianists as adults, according to a University of Dayton press release. The press release also noted that he was the oldest vowed religious man known by the National Religious Retirement Office of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. According to a Flyer News article, Deibel knew he wanted to join the Marianist community from a young age. He believed he needed to “save his soul” and saw the community as a good opportunity to do so. Deibel took his first vows as a member of the Society of Mary on Aug. 15, 1926 and graduated from UD in 1929. He went on to earn a degree in library science from Western Reserve University. After teaching in various Ohio Catholic schools, Deibel returned to UD in 1954 to work in the libraries. He was in charge of hiring students at the libraries and enjoyed getting to know them. Father Tom Stanley worked with Deibel at UD and moved to Mercy Siena at the same time as him in 2003. Stanley said he remembers Deibel’s “late night rounds” when he would go around Mercy Siena leaving encouraging notes for the residents who had fallen ill or needed a friend. He also said he admired Deibel for his eagerness to learn and embrace technology. “As people grow older, they shy away from new technologies but Brother Frank reveled in them,” Stanley said. “He used them to stay in contact with friends and family, pass along new findings and stay in touch with what was happening in the world.” Up until the end of his life, Deibel was visiting with others and sharing his love of the Mary, the mother of Christ. Deibel’s life was celebrated Aug. 4 in the in the University of Dayton’s Immaculate Conception Chapel. He is survived by a niece, four nephews, and several grandnieces and grandnephews.

EThan Klosterman/mANAGING eDITOR SOURCE: WebSudoku.com Puzzle by websudoku.com UD professors offer help as DECA opens elementary school LAUREN GLASS Staff Writer As classes begin at the University of Dayton, another Dayton school is opening its doors to students. Dayton Early College Academy Prep is an innovative early college preparatory school whose aim is “to create a college-going community,” said Judy Hennessey, the superintendent and CEO of the Dayton Early College Academy. For the first time, children from kindergarten to the sixth grade will be able to attend DECA Prep this fall. Diane Blackburn, the principal of DECA Prep, said that a major focus of the school will be placed on the literacy rate of the students and making sure they become early readers. DECA Prep is partnered with the Dayton Early College Academy High School which opened in 2003, according to the school’s website, DECAPrep.org. In 2008, the Dayton Early College Academy opened the DECA Junior High School. Many of the students who attend this school will be the first in their families to go to college, Hennessey said. DECA Prep also plans to make the students college-ready by getting parents more involved in the children’s schooling, Blackburn said. “It’s not that we’re just listening to [the parents], it’s beyond that, it’s a partnership where we work together,” she said. “It’s a very important goal of ours.” The parents work together with the school to help assess and meet Classifieds HOUSING 1 bedroom apartment $470, water, heat, trash paid. 556 Corona Ave. All updated, garage, secured entry. $250 deposit 1 yr. lease. Company four properties 937-499-3570 the children’s strengths and needs, Blackburn said. For example, an increased emphasis has been placed on character development and education since many parents expressed that it was an important need for the children to have met. “We really wanted to meet that need that the parents expressed and really thought it was a great idea,” Blackburn said. Character development will be taught by the teachers in the classrooms, but also individually by a special counselor DECA Prep hired, Blackburn said. “[Character development] provides a foundation for the rules in school so the children understand why we have these rules,” she said. Another focus of the school is going to be on developing wellrounded students and promoting active, hands on learning, she said. “At a time where lots of schools are cutting out physical education, music, and art, that’s what we are opening with,” she said. “We think it’s critical to their development as a whole learner.” The school will be equipped with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math lab, which will be used by students from all grades, said Blackburn. This will help to promote a research- based approach to learning early on, allowing the children to be actively engaged in their work, she said. The University of Dayton has also been involved in the development of DECA, and the DECA High School building is on UD’s campus. “It’s really exciting seeing the students of DECA right there on campus with the influence of the university faculty and students,” Blackburn said. Faculty members at UD have reached out to the school to offer their assistance, and several of the teachers at DECA Prep are UD graduates, Blackburn said. “There’s definitely a UD influence in the building,” Hennessey said.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., Garden Station will feature a vocal variety show, Dayton Out Loud. Auditions for the inaugural year of Dayton Out Loud were held Aug. 3 and proved to be promising as the judges accepted a handful of diverse and talented applicants. The performances will include a variety of poetry, a cappella songs, memoirs, rap and beatbox. One Dayton Out Loud volunteer and coordinator, Ria Megnin, explained the agenda of the show. “Each person will have up to three minutes to share his or her featured piece. When everyone on the list has performed, we’ll offer up the stage as an open mic,” she said. Dayton Out Loud allows members of the audience to both watch performers and jump up on stage and participate in the show, according to Megnin. Megnin said that not only is Dayton Out Loud a display of artistic expression, but it is also a fundraiser with donations benefiting the City Beets program of Five Rivers Metro Parks. Megnin described the City Beets program as an invitation to youths, ages 12-17, to learn about the modern food chain and become educated leaders about the food choices of today. Participants learn to grow and harvest their own food in community gardens, then sell it through a local farmers market, she said. Garden Station is a fitting venue for the beneficiary of Dayton Out Loud, City Beets. The unique, urban hub is a place created entirely by volunteers and donations from the community. Garden Station features sustainable living education and demonstrations to help Dayton residents become more selfsufficient, according to Garden Station’s Facebook page. Urban Nights has much to offer the residents of Dayton and students, including the ability to grow gardens, artistic expression and a bond to the city of Dayton. “Dayton Out Loud is a great way to start your Urban Nights experience,” she said. “Dayton Out Loud starts early and will be wrapping up by 7 p.m. So come on down, discover the awesomeness that is Garden Station, hear terrific local art- In this May, 13, 2011 file photo, performers play in front of a crowd at Urban Nights, at RiverScape MetroPark in downtown Dayton.

County fair offers affordable fun cc hutten Chief A&E Writer Students looking for a close-tocampus Labor Day activity can attend the Montgomery County Fair. The fair runs from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29, until Sept. 3 with a $6 entrance charge. “It’s great entertainment [and] it’s a good value that is walking distance from campus. The atmosphere is especially interesting at night because of the CED lights. It’s beautiful,” said year-long office manager Debbie Long. Long said she has worked with the annual fair for 15 years, but the fair itself is nearly two centuries old. “I really enjoy my job,” Long said. “There’s always something new going on. I come to the same places but do different things.” There are many activities and events that will be held during the five-day duration. From tractor pulls to food contests, there is not a boring moment, Long said. “There are approximately 30 rides all together,” she said. The fair will feature rides, booths, animal barns, antique shows, corn hole tournaments, food and beer gardens. There will also be a Demolition Derby, according to Long. “[The Demolition Derby is] when people get into cars called ‘Demo cars’ in the middle of the grandstand and basically smash each other until only one is left standing. It’s great entertainment,” she said. “The thing about the fair is that every time I go, I feel like a kid in a candy store,” said sophomore business major Davis Arnold. “It’s so exciting. I can’t wait to go.” While many county fairs are held in the country, Long said that Montgomery County’s fair is different because of its urban setting. “It’s right on the edge of the city,” she said. “It’s more of an urban fair as opposed to a rural one. The dynamics of that is what sets it apart from other fairs like in Troy, Ohio.” Long said these events are for all ages, and that people from all walks of life come around for a good time. She recommends the Zipper and Pirate Ship rides as well as the animal barns. “You can be a kid again. Also, it is stress relieving to hop on a ride and scream my lungs out,” she said.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT 7 FLYER NEWS | Friday, August 24, 2012 Dietician: It’s not where you eat, it’s what you eat anna godby A&E Editor From Chipotle or Panera Bread on Brown Street to the three main dining facilities on campus, University of Dayton students have a variety of options available when it comes to chowing down. UD offers free dietician services to all students, faculty and staff to help promote nutrition education, wherever a student decides to eat. Dietician Wylan Ganote said she has helped a variety of people improve their eating habits with personalized nutrition goals and plans. “Staff, faculty, brothers, even the president at one point,” she said. “My services aren’t really limited to anybody around UD.” Dining Services offers a bro- chure, “Healthy Eating on Brown Street,” students can use to make healthy choices when dining off campus. While some food options are healthier than others, Ganote said it does not matter where a student chooses to eat. Instead, she said, it is crucial for students to make informed choices about healthy options at any eatery. “It’s all the same, I can make wise choices no matter where I eat,” Ganote said. “I eat everywhere, not just Brown Street and UD, but I’ll eat at Rue Dumaine and the Winds and all kinds of places, but at the end of the day I have a pattern I follow and that’s the end of it, because I know what I’m doing.” The definition of healthy eating varies for each person. Ganote said factors such as a person’s sex, age and activity level have an impact on how many calories should be consumed. “So much depends on the activity thing,” she said. “If you are living in Stuart, you can eat a different way than if you lived right next door to Panera and ate there all the time.” UD students often come to campus without an understanding of the thought that goes into healthy eating. “The issue is most students don’t have a pattern, they don’t know what they’re doing and frankly some of them don’t care,” Ganote said. “They are pretty well certain they are indestructible and going to live forever but the problem is that it’s not true.” When it comes to healthy eating habits, Ganote said many students begin to eat differently their junior or senior years than they did as a freshman. “Wisdom starts to set in and they make different choices,” she said. Much of the food served at UD comes from Gordon Food Service, yet each dining hall has its own unique nutritional information due to varying recipes and ingredients. General nutrition information for the facilities on campus is available on Porches on the UD Daily tab under Menu. “The difference [in nutrition] is based on portion size and ingredients and while most nutrition info is available from restaurants’ websites, UD is not exact because it is recipe based,” Ganote said. U N I VERS I T Y O F DAY TO N Senior biology major, Kourtney Mcnoulty said that she should put more thought into what she eats but that a tight budget and schedule makes it difficult. She typically prefers to eat at her house in the student neighborhood instead of Brown Street or on campus. “My house is cheaper, UD is way more convenient and Brown Street is a treat,” she said. Mcnoulty said most meals are eaten at her house, with UD being used to buy snacks between classes and Brown Street restaurants for special times out with friends. To learn more about nutrition, visit www.dietitian.com or to use UD’s dietitian services, contact Ganote at [email protected] with “UD consult” as the message subject.

Some students wear headphones and listen to music on their commute to class. As this semester approaches, here is a list of albums that are essential to listen to while on the go, doing homework or just enjoying yourself. Dispatch released their highly anticipated new album, “Circles Around the Sun” on Aug. 21 from Universal Records. Dispatch, best known for their song, “The General,” broke up in 2004 after playing their final show in Boston to an estimated 110,000 people, according to the Boston Globe. However, Dispatch reunited in 2007 for a Zimbabwe benefit concert. The band officially reunited in 2011 and has been playing shows ever since. It’s been 12 years since their last record, so it will be interesting to see what kind of sound they will have in this album. Since they released their “Dispatch EP” in 2011 they sounded perfect with their indie rock infused sound with hints of reggae. Be prepared for that classic sound from Dispatch in August. For hip-hop fans, no album is more anticipated than Kanye West’s “Cruel Summer,” from G.O.O.D. Music. Founded in 2004 by Kanye West, G.O.O.D. Music has had a plethora of popular rappers from Kid Cudi and Common to up-and-coming rappers such as Q-Tip and Pusha T, including Big Sean who played at Timothy’s Bar and Grill in March 2011. “Cruel Summer” is a collaborative album of the rappers who are signed to G.O.O.D. Music. The album has already been pushed back twice and is now expected on Sept. 18. “Cruel Summer” has already released singles from the album such as “Mercy,” “New God Flow” and “I Don’t Like,” which is a remix of Chicago’s young newcomer, Chief Keef, who released the song this summer. Expect big verses and new sounds to come from “Cruel Summer” in September. Hip-hop fans will also enjoy two other albums coming from Lupe Fiasco who most recently played at the UD Arena last April as part of the Concert Charity Committee annual show. Lupe is releasing the sequel to his debut album, “Food & Liquor” with “Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album, Part 1,” due out on Sept. 25. In addition, Harlem newcomer ASAP Rocky is releasing his debut album, “LongLiveASAP” on Sept. 11. One band managed to bring indie folk to a mainstream level, and that is Mumford and Sons. They released their debut album, “Sigh No More,” in 2010 and have managed to make a name for themselves with songs like “Little Lion Man” and “The Cave.” “They haven’t released an album in over two years and I heard they spent a lot of time changing and crafting a new sound for the album,” said Amy Kandel, a junior political science and human rights studies major. Mumford and Sons is best known for their use of harmonies and unique instrumental choices such as a mandolin, accordion, banjo and string bass. “I’m not hoping for anything different, just another album which can truly be enjoyed from start to finish,” Kandel said. Mumford and Sons will hopefully expand upon their folk sound for this upcoming record, “Babel,” to be released on Sept. 25. For people who enjoy indie rock, look no further than Grizzly Bear. Grizzly Bear became popular in 2009 with their release of “Veckatimest.” The album received mostly popular reviews from respected music magazines. Rolling Stone put it on its “Best of the Year List” at No. 21 and Spin Magazine rated it four out of five stars. On Sept 18, Grizzly Bear will release “Shields” on Warp Records. “I love the psychedelic influenced music,” Hillary Rings, a senior marketing major, said. “The single [“Sleeping Ute”] is the best I have heard in a while.” Grizzly Bear is hoping to gain a bigger audience with this album. Other major releases are from Green Day, Muse and the Dave Matthews Band. Green Day will release their first album of a trilogy that will carry into next year with the first album titled, “¡Uno!.” Muse is taking a much different direction with their new album, “The 2nd Law” on Oct. 2. In an April 2012 issue of NME, a United Kingdom music magazine, lead singer Matthew Bellamy said the album was influenced by dubstep and electronic music that is now becoming popular. Lastly, Dave Matthews will release their new album, “Away From the World,” on Sept. 11. Any of these albums are sure to be great, so give any of these a listen this year. One of these albums could be nominated for a Grammy in 2013! OPINIONS 8 flyernews.com FLYER NEWS | Friday, August 24, 2012 forum “The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing ... not healing, not curing ... that is a friend who cares.” Henri J.M. Nouwen Dutch Catholic priest, author, 1932-1996 Let the (political) games begin fneditorial loss: Coverage of deaths rooted in respect for life As we begin a new school year, we pause to remember the lives of four community members who died over the summer. We remember students William Tobin, Daniel Arnold and Edward Brown and Marianist brother Frank Deibel, S.M., as beloved members of our campus community. Covering a death is a difficult task for journalists. In covering death, we confront the reality of our mortality, the injustices of life and the pain of questions left unanswered. These experiences can cause even the most skilled and diligent editors to challenge instinctual values of reporting the news. Covering death, as in covering life, requires both vigor for the truth and sensitivity for the needs of the community. In times of mourning, as in times of celebration, journalists must be accountable yet independent. As our community’s newspaper of record, we are charged with the responsibility to accurately report on the stories and experiences of our fellow community members, in their joys and sadness, triumphs and tribulations, in their lives and, yes, in their deaths. Such coverage may, in the wake of grief, seem insensitive or coldhearted. Yet, it is imperative to explain that coverage of death stems from a profound respect for the unique mystery of life. In choosing not to cover the final moments of these men, we would reduce the legacy of their lives only to rumors of their deaths. Our community would be left only with more questions about these tragedies, at a time when they have questions to spare. In stating the realities of their passing, perhaps we can begin to enter the celebration of their lives. fnstaff 2012–2013 Editor-in-Chief Jacob Rosen 229-3892 Webmaster Michael Whitney editor -in-Editors chief | Ethan Chris Klosterman Moorman Managing Art Hannah artDirector director | ErinMagnan Bolles & 937-229-3892 Rebecca Young managing | William Garbe News Editoreditors Chris Rizer & Ethan Klosterman Asst.

If getting Americans to share a short-term interest in events that they only care about every four years were an athletic competition, NBC would win the silver medal. This year, according to the Huffington Post, the broadcasting giant paid over $1.1 billion for the rights to televise a collection of sporting events that, for the rest of the quadrennium, folks in the USA don’t really care about, and they did so to huge success. The network set a record for viewership and at one point turned archery into the most-viewed event of the games, as reported by Reuters and ESPN, respectively. I suppose that if I’m going to dish out the media-blitz medals, I’ve got to go all the way. Who gets the gold? That goes to the pundits, the parties, the plutocrats and the people who make up the American political machine. And this year, fueled by a highoctane mix of economic woes and, ironically, record-high spending on most recently in 2008 when then-Senators Obama and McCain held rallies in the city. And this year, some electionwatchers are predicting an important role for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the related defense industries in the area. Additionally both vice-presidential candidates are Roman Catholics, followers of a faith with which this university and many of its students are affiliated, and a group which I predict will be targeted heavily throughout this election cycle. In keeping with the national theme this fall, I’ll periodically write columns dealing with the election and the policy issues surrounding it, and I want to see Flyers of all political stripes writing in to do the same. One of the purposes of Flyer News is “to serve the campus community and offer a forum for opinion.” In order to accomplish this goal, we need your help.

Get ready for massive campaigns in Ohio by politicians vying for local, state and national offices alike, more fervent than in previous years. The race between Sen. Sherrod Brown and State Treasurer Josh Mandel promises to be especially agonizing, flooded as it is with out-of-state donations.

Much-lauded book scholarship program leaves upperclassmen out in the cold steve maloney Staff Writer For the next several years, incoming first-year students will receive free textbooks. While this is a good way to recruit potential students, it leaves us poor upperclassmen to fend for ourselves. Under this new “book scholarship program,” if a prospective student completes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, makes an official visit to campus and is accepted into the school, all by Mar. 1 of that year, he/she will receive $4,000 toward books over four years. An estimated 75 percent of this year’s incoming students will take advantage of this program, which will cost UD an estimated $1.5 million dollars annually, according to a University of Dayton press release. I get it. This will encourage a lot of good things. Families will see this place and realize it’s perfect for their kids. It will motivate people to apply for and receive federal aid, no matter how little the government might offer. And it will be one less headache for parents and students alike when it comes to buying books every semester. It is an ideal move in this rough economy. But what about us, the Flyer Faithful who are already here? I sure would love some free books, too. An opportunity to spend my hard-earned, summer job money on weekends and food rather than pay $200 for a chemistry book that I’ll resell later for ten bucks? Count me in. Now, I’m not calling this out because I don’t think the new students deserve it. By all means, give students incentive to realize there is no better school than UD. My gest that upperclassmen should suddenly receive a voucher for free books for the rest of their time at UD. That is simply not possible with the number of students currently attending school “My point is that many of us who work extra hard to be able to afford an education at this institution (and pay for things such as books) deserve a little bit too.” Steve maloney, staff writer point is that many of us who work extra hard to be able to afford an education at this institution (and pay for things such as books) deserve a little bit too. It would be foolish of me to sug- here. However, I would go through any application process to get any sort of “discount” if it meant forgetting about sifting through cheapesttextbooks.com to find the best deal. My suggestion is for UD to throw us upperclassmen a bone, an opportunity to redeem free books. How about an extensive application process that evaluates what each student has done over their year(s) at UD? Let’s say if you have a 3.5 GPA or higher, you get free books. If your GPA is not that high but you participate in three clubs or more, you get free books. Yes, that’s a tough case-by-case evaluation process, but a process that would be worth it nonetheless. If that type of application does not work, I know for a fact based on surveying fellow students that many people would do community service to pay for their books. I believe that all students deserve financial stability, and I would hope that UD did not forget about its upperclassmen in the process of forming this program. letter to the editor An end to summer blues; student shares feelings on return to UD What is it like to go back to UD for a third time after being home, now that I have two years under my belt? Everyone says, “Once you are away from home and on your own, it is hard to go back.” It couldn’t be more true. I left home for my freshman year of college, ready to be on my own. I was looking forward to not having to report to anyone anymore with everywhere I went. Little did I know how homesick I would get. I was ready to go home for the summer. When it came time to head back to school for my sophomore year, I was ready. I knew that I wasn’t going to get homesick this year. Ironically, I made it a part of my weekly routine to make certain phone calls. I called my grandparents, mom, dad and great uncle. And I found that this time, I was not excited to come home for the summer. All of my friends were staying in Dayton, and I was not ready to fall back into my “family life” at home. You see, my parents made it very clear at a young age that as long as I was in their house I was under their rules and surveillance. As I grew older, it became more difficult to be home by a certain time or tell them everywhere I planned to go during the day. I have struggled with my parents, trying to get them to hear my side. My favorite line of theirs, when they tried to ATTENTION WRITERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS! Flyer News is looking for new members! Contact: [email protected] explain to me why they can put me on a leash at home when I have so much freedom at school, is, “Because it’s just different, Maria.” My parents are great, but they are the perfect example of “overprotective parents.” My mom needs to know at all times where all four of her kids are, no matter how old we are. So you can imagine, being home has it perks but it also feels like I’m suffocating in my freshly made bed – thanks mom! Everyone knows moms’ cooking is the best, especially when you come home from school and all she wants to do is … everything (for you)! But after the first month, then the second, goes by, it’s time to go back on my own. “Where are you?” “When will you be home?” “Do this. Do that.” “Don’t talk to your brother/sister like that!” My head starts spinning with a million word bubbles of mom’s demands. The fourth month comes around, work didn’t fill enough time away and you are counting down the days until you can walk on UD’s campus again. You hug your mom and dad, say thanks but “See ya!” Now, going into my junior year, I cannot wait to get back to UD! I’m glad my summer is over and I can get back to my routine among my fellow Flyers. Believe it or not, I am much more relaxed and happier when I am away from home. It’s as if I am in my own little world. Looking back, I laugh at how different I was only two years ago.

The Flyers began its season Aug. 14 in Morton, Ill., with a 3-1 win over Bradley. Senior forward Evan McCreary scored two out of the three goals for the Flyers while sophomore defender Greg Enstone scored the game-winner. “The first two games have been awesome so far,” said junior defender John Howe. “Bradley was big for us because it was our first game, and it was on the road against a tough team. We came out with a win and then followed it with another good performance against Detroit at home. Everyone was pleased with the two games, and we expect to keep that going for the season.” Back at home on Saturday, Aug. 18, UD shut out the Detroit Titans 2-0. Senior midfielder Daniel Berko scored the first goal for the Flyers, with the second coming on a penalty kick by Enstone. The Titans had 10 shot attempts but the Flyers’ freshman goalkeeper Chris Froschauer did not back down and let anything by him. “The team has experienced a great preseason, and the team chemistry is at an all-time high,” said head coach Dennis Currier. “Our biggest challenge this season will be the strength of our schedule. It stretches throughout the entire season, but our first four games will be against potential nationally ranked opponents. Coming off a poor season in 2011, we have a lot to prove.” Currier also said the Flyers welcome many new team members this year. “In terms of newcomers, freshman defender Christopher Lenning and graduate midfielder Eddie Jones are expected to play large roles for the Dayton Flyers,” he said. “Senior forward Evan McCreary finished the last seven games last season on a very high note. If he can remain healthy, I believe he will play a major role. Other returners who played significantly last year is John Howe, [ junior defender] Jonathan Nelson, and [ junior midfielder and forward] Andres Acevedo who are expected to step up this season.” The Flyers are ready to start their regular season games with high energy after coming off of a rough season last year. The team has been picked to finish in the middle of the pack in the Atlantic 10 Conference preseason poll. When asked what can be expected from the team this season, Howe was enthusiastic and carried a positive attitude about this upcoming season. “We really worked on work ethic and leadership all spring to prepare for the fall,” he said. “I think we already have the talent to do well this year, and if we add in those two pieces consistently throughout the season, we can be really successful.” Dayton will open the season with a home game Friday, Aug. 24, against the Ohio State University Buckeyes at 7 p.m. at Baujan Field. The Flyers will also host the University of Kentucky Wildcats at home on Sunday, Aug. 26, at 5 p.m. The University of Dayton offers free admission to all men’s soccer regular season home games.

ETHAN KLOSTERMAN/MANAGING EDITOR Wome n ’s S o c c e r Three-time A-10 champions start season with road split steven wright Sports Editor Starting the regular season away from home, the University of Dayton women’s soccer team opened the year playing a pair of matches in Texas. Dayton, the three-time defending Atlantic 10 Conference champion, opened the season with a 3-2 loss to the University of Texas Friday, Aug. 17, in Austin, Texas. Two days later, the first win of the year came in a 5-1 triumph against the University of Texas-San Antonio in San Antonio. The Flyers jumped out to a lead just over two minutes into the game. Senior forward Colleen Williams netted her first goal of the season off a corner kick taken by freshman midfielder and defender Lesley Chilton for a 1-0 lead. Williams, who is on the Hermann Trophy watch list as the top women’s collegiate soccer player, led the team with 16 goals in 23 contests in 2011. The lead was short-lived as Tex- as would equalize the score on senior forward Hannah Higgins’ 11th minute score. Staying tied into the 81st minute, Texas freshman midfielder Sydney Shutter gave her team the lead with just over nine minutes remaining, but it would not hold. After running in from her own corner kick with just under four minutes left, Flyers junior midfielder Juliana Libertin tied the game at two, trickling a goal by Texas sophomore goalkeeper Ava Vogel. In overtime though, senior midfielder Krisitin Cummins, who tied for the team lead in goals in 2011, put away the golden goal for the win in the 99th minute to hand the Flyers an opening loss. The team has not lost its season opener since 2005. Head coach Mike Tucker said he was pleased with what he saw in the opening match but thought his team was going to win in the extra session. “We had three really good opportunities in overtime, but when you don’t put those away, then it’s one and you’re done,” he said. “We gave up way too many scoring opportunities, but they were a good team.” Senior midfielder and forward Alexia Garcia said she thought the team played well for having an opening match away from home. “I was really happy with our play,” she said. “We were doing everything we set out to do, but it was just our couple of mistakes that really bit us. At the end of the day, that was unfortunate, but we couldn’t be mad because we played how we wanted to play.” A bounce-back, winning effort came in the four-goal margin over UTSA on Sunday at the UTSA Recreational Sports Complex. Another quick start for the Flyers was punctuated by a goal scored in the match’s fourth minute from Libertin following a corner kick. Williams would keep pace with her teammate, scoring her second goal of the season in the 20th minute. Freshman midfielder Ashley Campbell netted her first ever collegiate goal in the 38th minute for a 3-0 halftime lead. “On Sunday in the first half, we were really on them,” Tucker said. “It almost looked like they weren’t even out there on the field at times because we were having our way. The game changed after the half. ... we still created good scoring opportunities and were better defensively, but we’re not perfect yet.” The Flyers scored the first five goals of the match before UTSA got on the board against junior goalkeeper Jordin Melchert, who was a halftime substitute. Tucker said Melchert had been battling an illness and being able to get her into the game was a plus. He said all twenty players entered the match against UTSA. Libertin would add one more goal in the match to give her three for the week along with two assists. Her seven-point weekend effort was good enough to be named Atlantic 10 Conference co-player of the week, along with La Salle University’s Jourdan McVicker, on Monday, Aug. 20. After being outshot in its opening match against Texas 21-10, the Flyers turned the tables on UTSA with a 27-12 shot advantage. “In a way, we did well both games, but with the better outcome Sunday, we had better opportunities and didn’t make as many mistakes that came back to bite us in the butt,” said Garcia. Dayton opened its home schedule on Thursday, Aug. 23, against Boston University, who is ranked 19th in the first National Soccer Coaches Association of American poll of the regular season. The women’s next home match is Sunday, Aug. 26, against Northwestern University at Baujan Field at 1 p.m. SPORTS 11 FLYER NEWS | Friday, August 24, 2012 Wom e n ’s S o c c e r Haitian national team visits dayton Dan Whitaker Asst. Sports Editor At the conclusion of the first scrimmage of the 2012 season for the University of Dayton women’s soccer team, for maybe only this one time, the final score was not the most important thing. On Jan. 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the small Caribbean country of Haiti, with an epicenter just 25 miles from its capital city, Port-au-Prince. In what was one of the deadliest earthquakes of all time, 316,000 people were killed, and thousands of residences and buildings were destroyed. Included in these casualties were 32 members of the country’s soccer federation after their headquarters collapsed during the powerful earthquake. The resulting damage left countless numbers of people homeless and looking for shelter, which many found at Sylvio Castor stadium, Haiti’s home for national soccer. For a while, Haiti’s most popular sport would have to be put on hold, as the country struggled to rebuild from the rubble. However, slowly but surely, the Haitian Football Federation, much like the country it represents, rose again, and began to revitalize its people. Thanks in large part to donations from its governing body, the Federation Internationale de Football Association, the Haiti U-17 women’s team competed in a qualifying tournament for the World Cup just two months after the disaster. Now just over two years since the disaster, Haiti has still not fully recovered. According to a survey by Oxfam, which is an international organization working to find a solution to poverty and injustice, over half a million Haitians still remain homeless, and much of the country’s infrastructure has still not been built. Also, the HFF hasn’t replaced any of the personnel they lost in the quake and works with a reduced staff. None of this has halted the Haitians however from playing their beloved sport. As its website states, “Soccer is a passion and a stimulant that brings the joy of life and hope to all Haitians, regardless of their age, their sex, and their economical social statute,” and so they played on. Most recently, the Haitian Women’s National team participated in the qualifying tournament Jan.

MICKEY SHUEY/CHIEF SPORTS WRITER 19-29 for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The team finished 1-2, defeating Cuba 3-0 in its lone win. This summer, the team has been doing a summer tour of the United States, playing in scrimmages while raising awareness of the continuing struggles of their people back home. This is how University of Dayton women’s soccer assistant coach Tiffany Hansen noticed the team. “I was working at a camp at [the University of ] Notre Dame,” Hansen said, “and heard that they were in the States looking for games against good teams, and I thought it would be a good challenge to see what were made of against a good, physical team.” According to UD head coach Mike Tucker, the game was scheduled in place of a scrimmage that was to be played against Butler University, but was canceled because of Butler joining the Atlantic 10 Conference this upcoming season. The game itself, which was played Aug. 4, finished 4-1 in favor of the Flyers. Junior midfielder Stephanie Emery led the team with one goal and one assist. Also contributing goals were freshman forward Katie Krejsa, junior mid- fielder Juliana Libertin and freshman midfielder Ashley Campbell. This game wasn’t as much about the final score though, as it was more about the overall experience. According to senior forward Colleen Williams, it was “an honor” to play against the Haitian National team. “The whole thing was cool,” Williams said. “We were able to exchange T-shirts and banners, and it was interesting to see their style of play. The Caribbean style is very different. It’s very physical, but with no trash talking and no fights break out. That’s just their style of play.” Due to the scrimmage being set up last minute, UD was not able to organize any kind of collection or benefit for earthquake relief. However, all of the team’s expenses were paid for by the university, and according to coach Tucker, the team is hoping to have a benefit night for those affected sometime this season. As for the Haitian National team, they continue to play on representing their country and serving as an inspiration to a nation struggling to rebuild. According to its website, “they serve as motors that will carry a certain increase into the self-esteem and also confidence in themselves of young women of Haiti.” The team not only serves as a re- minder for people to not forget the troubling past but also as a hope for a brighter future.

ETHAN KLOSTERMAN/MANAGING EDITOR Mickey Shuey Chief Spots Writer Members of the University of Dayton volleyball team are hoping the luck of the draw will be in their favor this weekend as they host the 2012 Flyer Classic.¬ Headlined by tonight’s match against the University of Illinois, initially ranked seventh in the American Volleyball Coaches Association preseason poll, the round-robin event has quickly become a namesake in women’s college volleyball, said head coach Kelly Sheffield. “[The Flyer Classic] is one of the premier tournaments in the country,” he said. “It also happens to be in our gym, and it’s our season opener.” Joining the 2011 NCAA Division I national runner-up Fighting Illini are No. 11 Pepperdine University and Ohio University. According to Sheffield, many expect Ohio to win the Mid-American Conference this season, while the Wave are coming off an Elite Eight finish in the 2011 tournament. For senior outside hitter Rachel Krabacher, the opportunity to beat a top-15 team for the first time in program history is a statement in itself. “We’ve been close to beating them both, especially recently,” she said. “But to even play teams like Illinois and Pepperdine, plus a good OU team, at home … it means so much.” Last season UD fell to both Illinois and Pepperdine in five sets. In the Sept. 3, 2011 loss to the Illini, the Flyers claimed wins in the first two sets, prior to being swept in games three, four and five. Krabacher said that while the team is focused, she and her teammates are also excited to get back on the court. All four teams will open their seasons at the Frericks Center. On the heels of its 21st tournament appearance, Pepperdine returns five starters, while Illinois brings back all but two players, both of whom were All-Americans in 2011. UD last played OU in 2010, winning in straight sets on the Athens, Ohio campus. Alaina Turner, a freshman outside hitter said that getting to start her collegiate playing career at home is special. “It’s crazy, really,” said Turner. “For us to go by classmates and have them say that they’ll be at the [game] that night is really cool.” Krabacher said that having a crowd of 1,000 at the team’s annual intrasquad Red-Blue Scrim- f lyer ne ws. c o m mage on Saturday, Aug. 18, was wonderful, but will likely pale in comparison to what’s to come. According to at least one member of the athletic department, a “near capacity crowd” is expected for today’s late match, as well as the other matches of the Classic. Both OU and Illinois have large local followings, and last year’s match against the Wave brought a crowd of 1,509 to UD Arena. Prior to the Flyers taking the court against Illinois at 7 p.m. today, Pepperdine and Ohio will meet in a game scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday’s matches, starting with a 10 a.m. Illinois-Pepperdine match, features Ohio against the Illini at 5 p.m. and UD-Pepperdine at 7:30 p.m. The Classic will conclude Sunday at 1 p.m. when the Flyers and the Bobcats play. All games will be played in the Frericks Center. “It’s a great thing to be able to play in front of our fans and against three great teams this weekend,” said Sheffield. But, as senior Paige Vargas noted: “This team is taking it one game at a time and making the most of every opportunity.” 2012 8-24 Illinois 8-25 Pepperdine Home 8-26 Ohio Home 8-31 Austin Peay Neutral 8-31 Missouri State Away 9-1 Oral Roberts Neutral 9-7 Ohio State Neutral 9-7 Western Kentucky Away 9-8 Tennessee Tech Neutral 9-14 Minnesota Neutral 9-14 Tulsa Away 9-15 Kansas State Neutral 9-21 Butler Home 9-22 Saint Louis Home 9-28 La Salle Away 9-29 Temple Away 10-8 Xavier Home 10-12 Fordham Home 10-13 Rhode Island Home 10-19 Saint Louis Away 10-21 Butler Away 10-26 George Washington Home 10-27 Duquesne Home 10-31 Cincinnati Home 11-2 Charlotte Away 11-4 VCU Away 11-10 Xavier Away 11-23 Western Michigan Away Home be sure to follow Flyer news sports on twitter (@flyernewssports) and check out the dayton football preview coming in issue two.
