Q&A, party foul and stripper life
JAYPLAYERS
Like any girl of my generation,
I know someone who suffered
from an eating
disorder. In high
school, I watched
with sadness as two
classmates struggled
with disorders. Its
a helpless feeling,
knowing someone
is killing herself and
there is not a thing
you can do.
Considering how common and
how devastating eating disorders
have become, especially for
girls my age, I feel incredibly
blessed that none of my close
friends ever struggled
with one. Instead of
eating too little, my
friends preferred to eat
themselves into oblivion
(one has even been
deemed the patron
saint of gluttony). So
my friends and I dealt
with a different kind
of personal choice. But
the girls in Liz Nartowiczs article
(p. 10) on pro-eating disorder
Web sites shocked me. I never
knew people that suffered
from anorexia or bulimia could
classify their disease as a choice
rather than an ailment. With a
little help, the girls I knew from
high school are a healthy weight
and now want to join in on the
Olive Garden breadstick-eating
contests my friends and I hold.
Which could be a sign of a
different kind of eating disorder
altogether, but thanks to Lizs
article I know where we can all
get help.

Lara Kindle had her frst taste of tea
one lazy Saturday morning with her
mother and sister. The Basehor senior
was only 8 at the time, but the soothing
taste made her a tea drinker for life.
Tea is a comfort drink for me, Kindle
says. It always quenches my thirst and
warms me up on a cold day or cools me
down in the summer.
The ancient beverage was
discovered in 2737 B.C. by Chinese
Emperor Shen-Nung. Legend says that
tea leaves accidently blew into the
emperors pot of boiling water, and the
world has been enjoying tea ever since.
Tea is the most commonly consumed
beverage behind water, according to
the American Tea Institute. In 2005,
Americans consumed more than 50
billion servings of tea, more than 2.25
billion gallons.
What is tea?
To really be considered tea, the leaves
must come from the tropical plant
Camellia sinensis, says Bianca Storlazzi,
tea buyer at the Community Mercantile,
901 Iowa St. Differences among the types
of tea result from the varying degrees of
processing and the level of oxidization.
The tea leaves undergo natural chemical
reactions, which result in taste and color
changes.
Four thousand varieties of tea exist
today, but the three most common kinds
are black, green and oolong.
Black tea is the most commonly
consumed, accounting for 87 percent
of all tea consumption, according to
the American Tea Institute. Storlazzi
explains that oxidization and
fermentation of the leaves darkens the
tea, and in some cases the leaves are
hung like tobacco.
Chai tea, popular
in coffee shops,
is a type of black
tea mixed with
spices. The tea
originated in India
and usually is
served sweet with
milk and honey,
Storlazzi says.
Green tea
u n d e r g o e s
m i n i m a l
processing and is
not oxidized. As a
result, its natural
green color is
preserved and
it most closely
resembles the original green leaf. It
accounts for 12.5 percent of all tea
consumption and is supposed to be
the healthiest of teas. Jen Bergman,
Minneapolis junior, drinks iced green
tea to relax. Theres something about
sipping iced tea on the back porch in the
summer that really puts me at rest, she
says.
The small remaining amount of
tea consumption belongs to oolong
tea, which is
between black
and green in
strength and
color. This tea
is oxidized for
two to three
hours and is
only partially
f e r m e n t e d ,
which preserves
more of
its healthy
properties.
White tea,
which is growing
in popularity,
is the least-
processed type
of tea. Its leaves
are picked and harvested before they
fully open, and yield a lighter-colored
brew. Although there hasnt been much
research on white tea, Storlazzi says, it
is supposedly as healthy as green tea, if
not more. A popular white tea right now
is called dragon bowl, she says. When
water is poured on top of the tea leaves,
a fower rises up to the top of the glass,
she says.
Differences in processing also
infuence cost. Storlazzi buys tea by the
ounce for the Merc. Its sold by the leaf
each of which yields three to four cups.
Depending on where the tea leaves were
grown and whether they are organic,
prices range from $.90 to $6 per ounce.
Storlazzi tries to buy fair trade as much
as possible because the people picking
the leaves are paid a fair wage.
A healthy treat
New findings from the scientific
community lend credibility to teas
healthy properties. Tea is particularly
rich in catechins, a type of flavonoid
that is believed to have antioxidant
properties, says Jeffrey Blumberg,
director of the Antioxidants Research
Laboratory at Tufts University. The
antioxidants in tea work to counteract
free radicals in the body, agents which
scientists believe are damaging to
long-term health.
Blumberg says teas have been
associated with a reduced risk of
coronary heart disease, some forms
of cancer, osteoporosis and may even
increase metabolism. One study showed
that smokers who drank four cups of
decaffeinated green tea daily for four
months had a signifcant decrease in
signs of damage to the bodys cells and
DNA.
Few studies have compared one
type of tea against another, but there is
a great deal of overlap, Blumberg says.
For example, he says, research has found
cardiovascular benefts in both black
and green teas.
Tea is a no-brainer, Blumberg says. It
has zero calories, is rich in catechins and
evidence suggests it reduces the risk for
major chronic diseases. However, the
effects of tea are dose-related, he says.
Drinking three cups daily provides more
catechins and greater health benefts
than drinking one cup daily.
Bergman believes research on the
healthful properties of tea has increased
its popularity. I think its becoming a
more healthful trend, which makes it
popular with students. It doesnt have
all the additives that coffee does, she
says.
Kindle recognizes tea as a drink that
can stand the test of time.
Tea is a drink that has been around
for centuries, Kindle says. it isnt going
anywhere.

Party on, driver
Its 10 p.m. still early
for a Saturday night and a
Polo-clad kid swaggers down
the sidewalk, barely able to
place one foot in front of the
other. Students waiting in
line for the party laugh as he
stumbles, almost falling into
a parked car.
Hes fine, they assure
each other. Hey, kid. Are you
okay? Yeah, hes fine.
The kid makes his way to the
empty bus waiting outside.
Struggling with each step,
he wavers up the two stairs
and collapses into a seat. The
driver casually passes back
a black plastic trashcan, and
the kid buries his head in
it. Its nothing new for the
driver. After all, she deals
with this almost every night.
Driving a party bus isnt
the most glamorous job. Its
not very rewarding either,
says Rich, Lawrence resident.
He drives charter routes at
night for the Lawrence Bus
Company, 837 Pennsylvania
St., which also operates
Safe Ride and KU On Wheels
bus routes. Rich chauffeurs
drunks to and from various
bars or parties into the wee
hours of the morning. While
carting inebriated groups,
Rich deals with everything
from guys throwing punches
at him to girls toga costumes
falling off.
I worry most about
getting puked on, he
says. Ive been lucky, but
everyone else has had
someone throw up on the bus
or on them.
Someone gets sick on the
bus just about every ride,
Debbie Kelley, manager of
Lawrence Bus Company,
says. Cleaning up a party
bus is not a pretty sight, and
gets pretty nasty, she says.
Workers literally take a hose
and Clorox bleach to flush the
whole bus out.
If carting around a bunch
of wasted college kids doesnt
sound like a good time, try
putting up with a busload of
drunken middle-aged men.
Matt Mitchell, Leavenworth
junior, drives a privately-
owned bus for the bus
owner and his friends each
Wednesday. An older group of
men gets rowdy, Mitchell says.
Its funny how you think
thered be an age gap in
maturity but after a couple of
drinks, theyre pretty insane,
he says. Theyre pirates when
it comes to drinking.
Mitchell stays sober as
he schleps the partiers to
different bars, casinos and
strip clubs. He drives them
around while they drink
themselves stupid, he says.
After about midnight,
theyre too drunk to get back
on the bus, he says. Those
two steps seem to be the
hardest climb ever. I have to
hang out for 30 minutes when
it should just take them five
minutes.
Driving around a huge
crowd of party-goers can
be distracting, says Rich, the
charter bus driver. Buses can
fill up so much that people
are crammed, with hardly any
room to move. Most of the
time the drunks are overly
friendly, Rich says. They try
to shake hands, pat him on
the back and even offer him
drinks.
If its a bus of all girls, its
loud, Rich says. If its just a
bus full of guys, its bad. Lots
of roughhousing. A mix is
good.
Sarah Noulles, Tulsa, Okla.,
senior, is organizing a party
bus for 45 of her friends to
go to a Royals game in May. A
party bus is the best way to
coordinate that many drunk
people, she says.
Were all going to be
drinking heavily, and I dont
want anybody driving,
Noulles says. Its a lot easier
to get that many people to a
game on a bus than trying to
get cars organized.
Kelley, with Lawrence Bus
Company, says shed rather
have her drivers be the ones
driving around inebriated
people, because theyre used
to having a lot of people on
the bus all the time.
Were doing the kids
a service because they
dont have to worry about
driving, and were doing the
community a service because
theyre not out on the road,
she says.
Although party bus drivers
deal with people getting
sick, into fights and being
downright annoying, they still
rely on the income.
Putting up with all I put
up with, as long as I can pay
the bills, is worth it, Mitchell
says.

Brian: If I were dating
someone and found out she
had two other boyfriends, Id
be furious. If youre gonna
have all those boyfriends,
keep them up-to-date on
whats going on so they dont
feel neglected. But if you
really want to make things
interesting, just create a dating
show, like Flavor of Love on
VH1. Give the guys nicknames
and wear something on your
neck that says a lot about
you. For you, I suggest either
a huge condom, or just a sign
that says,I have STDs. Then at
least everyone will know what
(or whom) they are getting
into.
Jessica: Its not alright.
However, its ok to be
casually dating more than
one person, as long as its
absolutely clear youre
seeing other people. But
seriously, I gotta know how
this works. How do you keep
them all straight? How do
you keep them from finding
out about each other? Does
this mean you get three
times as much of everything
(kisses, lovin, wooing)?
Whos your favorite? How do
you manage date nights? Im
taking notes

Brian: Try browsing the back stacks of
Watson. Ive been there before (for a
book, I swear) and theres rarely a soul
in the area. Screamy McScreamerson
could scream her lungs out and nary a
person would hear. If not, I recommend
bringing something to keep over
or in her mouth; think socks, t-shirt,
fst or just grab a book off the shelf
and shove it in her mouth. If youre
worried about getting caught, dont
bring identifcation and as soon as
you see someone else, run for the hills.
Just dont forget to leave the library
book stuffed in your girls mouth; its
evidence.
Jessica: I think you speak for all of us, so
why dont you serve as the guinea pig
on this one? I doubt youll get caught
if you fnd some stacks on the top
foors (preferably one where Brian isnt)
and give (dont shove) your girlfriend
something to bite on so that she
doesnt scream too loudly, perhaps your
shoulder or fngers (not socks, a t-shirt,
fst or a book). Academic misconduct?
Hardly! If you should get caught, just
explain that sex makes your brain
function more effciently. Good luck. Let
us know how it works out!

Jessica: I fnd this very
offensive, Dane. Ive
had a multitude of
complaints from close
friends about girls
doing this, and, even
worse, girls who go on
dates and have full-
fedged relationships
and fail to mention
theyre engaged. I
think it comes down to
dissatisfaction and/or
uncertainty with the
current relationship.
When some people
arent having their
needs met or arent
sure theyre with the
right person, they look
elsewhere. I also think
many people like to
know they still have it
or that theyre making
the right decision
with their relationship/
engagement. Whatever
the case may be, I say
wait for a girl to ask you
out or get to know a girl
before asking her out.
Brian: Im sorry to
tell you this, Dane,
but its because girls
are heartless. Its that
simple. Thats why
men become deeply
involved in the great
relationships they
fnd; they know those
outstanding girls are
few and far between.
The best way to shield
yourself from these
situations is to not jump
right in. Giving your
phone number to a girl
is clich. Get her phone
number. Then the balls
in your court. Dont call
her, but send her a text
just telling her when
and where she should
meet you. If you fnd her
there, pursue her. If not,
continue sending her
vicious text messages
so you can rack up tons
of charges to her cell
phone.

he Sounds like Lawrence so much
theyre coming back for a second
visit.I think its something in the
water, drummer Fredrik Nilsson
says. From Helsingborg, Sweden,
the pop-punk band returns this Wednesday
to promote their second album, Dying to Say
This to You, after previous stints touring with
Foo Fighters and The Strokes. While talking to
Nilsson, I dreamily imagined him as a tall, lanky
blonde Swede sitting on sleek Ikea furniture
spooning meatballs drizzled in lingonberry
sauce into his mouth between sentences. Well,
hes tall and lanky, but I learn that this Swede is
a brunette and his Scandinavian food of choice
is licorice the saltier the better. Nilsson taught
me a thing or two about the Swedes, while I
enlightened him on American 4/20 culture.
Jayplay: So Fredrik, where are you now?
Nilsson: Right now, were in Boston. Our venue
is across from Fenway Park. I think a game is
starting soon; theres a lot of commotion.
J: Does Sweden have baseball?
N: No. We have something like T-ball we play in
school, but as far as I know, we dont have any
leagues.
J: Youre touring now to promote your new
album, Dying to Say This to You. What are you
dying to say?
N: That title actually comes from lyrics from the
song Ego.Wed been on the road touring for
two and a half years and were just dying to write
songs for the fans.
J: The band is known for putting on an
energetic show. In past interviews, youve
mentioned that you prefer performing live to
the studio. Does that still hold true?
N: Defnitely. You get an immediate response
from an audience if you play live. Everything is
in real time. You dont just play the drums, and
then a couple hours later someone comes in
and plays the guitar. Everyone in the band is in
one spot. Its the full package.
J: To me, Sweden seems like a utopia with
its lack of crime, statuesque blondes, and
environmentally-conscious society. Is there
any truth to that?
N: Well, we dont have as many homicides or
murders as in America. Its much harder to
get weapons in Sweden. There are a lot of tall
blonde people, too, but were not all blonde.
People are pretty environmentally-conscious. So
yeah, theres defnitely some truth to that.
J: What do you think Americans could learn
from Swedes?
N: I dont know that they should learn anything.
We have a way of thinking that is very un-
American. In America, youre supposed to have
it all. Nothing is impossible. Everyone has the
potential to be the president. In Sweden, we
think of each other as being all the same. If you
want to be on top, you cant think like a Swede
anymore. Somewhere between those two ways
of thinking would be best. A lot of Americans
dont have passports, so they dont necessarily
know about the rest of the world. When you
take a vacation, you go to California or Florida
and stay within your borders. Most Americans
can only compare America with America,
and I think its useful to travel and experience
different cultures.
J: Do you bring anything from home on tour
with you?
N: We always bring this one candy its a black
salty licorice. Its not at all like your red licorice. I
brought about a pound of it with us, but it only
lasted a few weeks.
J: Are there any American products that you
lug back?
N: I always try to bring some Airborne with us to
bring back home. Its that stuff that helps with
the immune system. It really helps. I travel with
so much stuff, so I dont really bother buying
much. Were in America a lot anyway, so its
never too long before were back. I do wish we
had Gatorade. If all those sporty guys and gals
are drinking it, it has to be good for something.
J: This interview is going to be printed next
Thursday, which is 4/20. Is it celebrated in
Sweden?
N: Ive heard about that, but I dont know
anything about it. We dont have that in Sweden.
What is it exactly?
J: Its basically a holiday for marijuana
smokers.
N: Oh, really? Anything to do with drugs is
frowned upon in Sweden. Its a big no-no.
