Ohio State seeks dismissal of Jonathan Waters’ lawsuit

October 23, 2014
After remaining mostly mum since being sued by former marching band director Jonathan Waters, Ohio State said it’s seeking to dismiss Waters’ lawsuit. OSU filed a motion in federal court Wednesday to dismiss and respond to the lawsuit Waters brought against the university. OSU said Waters was terminated July 24 because he knew of a problematic, sexually charged culture in the marching band and didn’t address the problems, according to a Thursday release. The filings also say Waters was an at-will employee who was subject to termination without cause. “He knew the problematic culture of the band well, but failed to adequately or appropriately fulfill his obligation to meaningfully address… Read more

Car2go raises prices, expands service

October 23, 2014
Car2go, a car-sharing service that offers point-to-point location rentals, has implemented an expansion and price increase, a company spokeswoman said. Meanwhile, some students who use the service said higher prices might mean they use caf2go less. The rate per minute to use a car has increased 3 cents from 38 cents to 41 cents, said Elise Lampert, a car2go spokeswoman. Meanwhile, the hourly rate to use one of the cars has increased $1 from $13.99 to $14.99 and the daily rate has increased $12 from $72.99 to $84.99, as of Oct. 13, Lampert said.

October 23, 2014
Students looking to be officially recognized for their international experience in business will now have the opportunity.

Opposition takes notice of Joey Bosa’s play for Ohio State

October 23, 2014
When the Ohio State football team rolls into town on Saturday, Penn State coach James Franklin knows which player to keep a close eye on. And when it comes to that particular player, he knows the numbers down to the last detail. “Joey Bosa, No. 97, is the guy that jumps out to us the most,” Franklin said at a Tuesday press conference. “He’s a 6-foot-5, 280 pounds defensive tackle and has a team-high nine tackles for a loss and five and a half sacks.” It was a good try by Franklin, but he didn’t quite have Bosa’s measurables correct. The sophomore defensive lineman is actually listed at 278 pounds… Read more

Opinion: Struggling Michigan football program is contributing to mediocre Big Ten

October 23, 2014
Anyone who follows college football even a little knows that the Southeastern Conference dominates the landscape. But it wasn’t always that way. As I sat in my living room late Wednesday night after coming home from work, I turned on the TV, and after a few minutes of channel surfing (us men are so good at that, right, ladies?) I came across the 2004 Michigan-Michigan State football matchup and began to watch. In the game itself, No. 12 Michigan defeated unranked Michigan State in what is arguably one of the best games Michigan Stadium has ever seen. The Wolverines won in triple overtime, 45-37, behind 224 yards on the ground… Read more

Buckeye women’s volleyball set for pair of Michigan-based opponents

October 23, 2014
It’s Michigan week for the No. 20 Ohio States women’s volleyball team (14-6, 5-3) as it’s scheduled to face Michigan State and Michigan this weekend. While many fans might associate Michigan with the football rivalry, the women’s volleyball team approaches the matchup the same way in their sport, senior defensive specialist Alyssa Winner said. “We came in here on Monday and we were all saying it was Michigan week,” Winner said. “It’s big for us and it means a lot to the school too.” And while the games this weekend have meaning to the team, they also have some personal significance for junior middle blocker Tyler Richardson, a native of… Read more

Review: Jodie Mack brings still images to life in experimental film at the Wex

October 23, 2014
The Film/Video Theater at the Wexner Center went completely black. Big white numbers popped up on the screen counting down to the beginning of the show, the same numbers you would see in old films. Jodie Mack, an experimental filmmaker who teaches at Dartmouth College, showed her five-part series “Let Your Light Shine” Wednesday night to an almost full auditorium. The showing consisted of five short films made and shot by Mack on 16mm film. The first part, “New Fancy Foils,” showed mostly still shots of fabrics, foils and papers with different patterns printed on them. The prints were shown with a rhythmic pattern, although the only sound you could… Read more

October 23, 2014
Fans of Japanese entertainment are in for a treat at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum’s upcoming event. Japanese comic books are set to be on display for the public to peruse at the Rare Manga Collection Open House. Only a small portion of the museum’s 20,000 manga materials will be at the open house, but all students have access to the large collection, said Maureen Donovan, a Japanese studies librarian at Ohio State. Donovan said she began collecting manga for the university in the mid-1980s and has a collection that is still growing. The manga that is set be on display come from a wide time-range, and Donovan… Read more

October 23, 2014
British boy band One Direction is set to perform at Ohio Stadium next year after new dates for its “On the Road Again” tour were announced Thursday. The pop group is set to perform in Columbus on Aug. 18, making it the second concert announced at the venue for next summer. “We knew they were planning a stadium tour, and we just went for it,” said Gary O’Brien, OSU spokesman for business advancement. The pop group, which formed out of the embers of its members’ failed solo acts on “The X Factor,” also did a sell-out stadium tour in 2014. Ending Oct. 5, it grossed more than $290 million from… Read more

2 High Street businesses close their doors

October 23, 2014
and
Despite close proximity to Ohio State’s campus, at least two restaurants along High Street couldn’t make it. But some nearby local businesses said they weren’t surprised based on the menus, food prices and locations of the two restaurants. Meanwhile, at least one of the spaces might already have a new tenant — Tom and Chee. Pera Fresh Istanbul Food and Red Robin’s Burger Works recently shut their doors. A Red Robin spokesperson confirmed the Burger Works location at 1708 N. High St. had closed earlier this month, but said that “beyond that, we do not have any additional details to share at this time.” The owner of the property, Scott… Read more
