UI STUDY ABROAD AT CUBA

TOTAL PKG TIME: 1:38

ANCHOR LEDE

JUST OVER A YEAR AGO, TWENTY EIGHT COLLEGE INSTITUTIONS SIGNED A LETTER WRITTEN TO BARACK OBAMA TO LIFT THE RESTRICTIONS ON ACADEMIC TRAVEL TO CUBA.  DAILY IOWAN TV’S ALI HOLTKAMP HAS THE SCOOP ON UNIVERSITY OF IOWA’S NEWEST STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM.

VO

EVER SINCE PRESIDENT OBAMA LIFTED THE BAN ON UNIVERSITY STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS TO CUBA IN JANUARY, THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HAS RECENTLY ANNOUNCED THEY WOULD BE ADDING CUBA TO THEIR LIST OF COUNTRIES STUDENTS CAN STUDY ABROAD AT.

THE LONGTIME RESTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL TO THE COUNTRY ADD TO THE ATTRACTION OF VISITING THE COUNTRY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS.

SOT

CUBA HAS BEEN LARGELY UNEXPLORED BY THE AMERICAN POPULATION AND IT’S A REALLY COSMOPOLITAN-COSMOPOLITAN CITY WITHOUT HAVING THE COST OF A EUROPEAN COSMOPOLITAN CITY

VO

UI OFFICIALS INTEND TO MAIN ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS THE SAME AS THEY WOULD IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY.  EVEN WITH THE U.S. AND CUBA MENDING RELATIONS, THERE IS STILL CONCERNS ABOUT ENTERING CUBA BECAUSE OF THE LONGTIME BAN.

SOT

SOME PEOPLE HAVE EXPRESSED CONCERN, BUT THAT’S MAINLY JUST A HISTORICAL CONCERN BECAUSE THE BAN HAS BEEN THERE FOR SO LONG, BUT REALLY THERES NO MORE DANGER FOR YOU TO GO INTO THE CITY OF CHICAGO OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

IT’S A MAJOR CITY SO THERES THE DANGER ASSOCIATED WITH THAT, BUT NOTHING MORE.

VO

THE U.S. HAS NOT DECIDED IF TOURISM OR VACATIONING IN CUBA WILL BE AN OPTION ANY TIME SOON, SO COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE AMONG THE FEW WHO GET THE CHANCE TO VISIT THE COUNTRY AT THIS TIME.

SOT

WE WANTED TO IMPLEMENT A PROGRAM THAT WOULD GIVE STUDENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO THERE, BEFORE IT GOT REALLY EXPENSIVE AND OVERCROWDED WITH AMERICAN TOURISTS.

VO

THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA’S STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM WILL BE THE FIRST PROGRAM TO GO BACK TO CUBA.

THE PROGRAMS WILL BE TWO WEEKS LONG AND START OVER WINTER BREAK RUNNING FROM DECEMBER THIRTIETH TO JANUARY THIRTEENTH-COSTING STUDENTS FOURTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM CAN CHOOSE FROM TWO DIFFERENT WRITING COURSES-TRAVEL WRITING AND ETHNOGRAPHIC ESSAY.

JOHNSON COUNTY PARANORMAL TEAM

TOTAL PKG TIME: 1;49

ANCHOR LEDE:

IOWA CITY HAS HAD ITS SHARE OF URBAN LEGENDS.  FROM THE BLACK ANGEL STATUE IN OAKLAND CEMETERY, TO THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA DORMS BEING HAUNTED.  RECENTLY A TEAM OF PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS TOOK A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PROPERTY ON 118 EAST COLLEGE STREEET, KNOWN BY MOST AS VITO’S.

VO

VITO’S BAR IN DOWNTOWN IOWA CITY FIRST CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF THE JOHNSON COUNTY PARANORMAL TEAM AFTER BEING FEATURED IN THE BOOK HAUNTED IOWA CITY.  WRITTEN BY UNIVERISTY OF IOWA ALUM VERNON TROLLINGER, THE BOOK FEATURES A CHAPTER ON VITO’S, WHICH ONCE WAS A FUNERAL PARLOR.

RECENTLY A POPULAR BAR IN DOWNTOWN IOWA CITY, VITO’S NOW HAS ALL THE FEATURES OF A HAUNTED BUILDING: DARK LIGHTING, DECAYING WALLS AND FLOORS, MUSTY SMELLS, AND SHEETS OF DUST COVERING EVERYTHING THE BUILDING HOLDS.

THIS HAS PROPELLED THE JOHNSON COUNTY PARANORMAL TEAM TO HUNT ON SUNDAYS AT 4 PM TO SEE IF THEY CAN FIND ANYTHING RELATING TO THE OLD URBAN LEGENDS THE BUILDING HOLDS.

SOT

WHY WE’RE HERE, WE’RE TONIGHT IS I THINK WE’VE BEEN EHRE ABOUT 3 OR 4 DIFFERENT OCCASIONS ADN WE’VE HAD UNEXPLAINED ACTIVITY GOING ON YOU KNOW

VO

PSYCHIC KIMBERLY BAINES WAS BROUGHT INTO VITO’S TO SEE IF SHE COULD COME INTO CONTACT WITH ANY PARANORMAL SPIRITS.  BAINES WAS HANDED AN ELECTROMETER, WHICH DETECTS ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS, WHICH ARE WHAT GHOSTS ARE SUPPOSEDLY MADE OUT OF.  BAINES’ NUMBERS ON THE ELECTROMETER SURGED, AND SHE CLAIMS SHE COULD FEEL A MALE SPIRIT THERE.  BAINES’ SUPPOSED ENCOUNTER GAVE HER OUTSTANDING NAUSEA

SOT

NAUSEA IS LEAVING, ITS POURING OUT OF MY BODY, THE ELECTRICITY OUT OF MY BODY

VO

ALTHOUGH THE PARANORMAL TEAM HAS BEEN GIVEN OUTSTANDING FEEDBACK WITH BAINES’ EXPERIENCE, THEY ARE CERTAINLY NOT DONE SERACHING.

SOT

THINGS HAPPENING YOU KNOW LIKE BOARDS FALLING DOWN ON THE FIRST TIME AND YOU KNOW DIFFERENT SOUNDS HERE AND THERE OF EVPS THAT I’VE GOTTEN BEFORE AND THERE’S SOME PICTURES THAT I’VE KIND OF QUESTIONED ABOUT SO ITS KIND OF LIKE THE MORE TIMES I GET BACK HERE HOPEFULLY THERE’S SOME MORE THINGS THAT I CAN FIND OUT

STAND UP

THE JOHNSON COUNTY PARANORMAL TEAM WILL CONTINUE THEIR GHOST HUNT AT VITOS ON SUNDAYS AT 4 PM.  ALI HOLTKAMP, DAILY IOWAN TV.

IOWA MEN’S BASKETBALL STRUGGLES

PKG TIME: 1:16

ANCHOR LEDE

THERE’S NO QUESTION THE IOWA MEN’S BASKETBALL PROGRAM HAS HAD IT’S STRUGGLES THE PAST FEW YEARS.   THE HAWKEYES STARTED THE YEAR HOT, GOING FOUR AND OH. RECENTLY THE SOLID PLAY HAS DIMINISHED, AND THE PAST FEW GAMES HAVE SHOWN THIS TEAM HAS IT’S FAIR SHARE OF STRUGGLES.

VO

THE BIG TEN ACC CHALLENGE WAS THE DAGGER THAT PROVED THE IOWA MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM PLAY NEEDS WORK.
IOWA COULD’VE USED THE DEFENSIVE BRAIN OF NORM PARKER, AND THE OFFENSIVE SKILLS OF FORMER STANDOUT ADAM HALUSKA, TWO FAMILIAR HAWKEYE SPORTS FACES WHO IRONICALLY HAPPENED TO BE IN THE CROWD.

THE BLACK AND GOLD HAVE SHOWED SUCCESS IN THE OPENING MINUTES OF PLAY. CONFIDENT PLAY SHOWS WHEN IOWA HAS A LEAD, AND PROVES ITHE HAWKEYES CAN PLAY WITH THE REST OF THEM, BY SCORING QUICK AND EASY IN THE PAINT OFTEN EARLY ON.
HOWEVER, ONCE THE OPPONENT FIGHTS BACK AND TAKES A SMALL LEAD, THAT LEAD SEEMS TO BE THE TURNING POINT WHERE IOWA LOSES CONFIDENCE AND INCONSI STENT PLAY BEGINS.

DEFENSE HAS SHOWN TO BE ONE OF THE HAWKEYES’ BIGGEST STRUGGLES.
FOR EXAMPLE CLEMSON MADE OVER FIFTY PERCENT OF THEIR SHOTS AGAINST THE IOWA DEFENSE. THE TIGERS WERE ABLE TO ATTEMPT TWENTY ONE THREE POINT BASKETS, SINKING ELEVEN OF THEM.

MORE STRUGGLES OF THE BLACK AND GOLD SQUAD SHOWED WHEN THE TIGERS BROKE IOWA’S PRESS DEFENSE WITH EASE ALL NIGHT.
HEAD COACH FRAN MCCAFFREY IS CONFIDENT AS THE SEASON GOES ON, THE HAWKEYES WILL IMPROVE, EVEN THE RECORD DOESN’T SHOW IT.

SOT

WE ARE BETTER THAN WE’RE PLAYING RIGHT NOW, AND WE’LL GET IT FIGURED OUT. AND YOU ALWAYS LOOK BACK AND SAY BOY IT WOULD’VE BEEN NICE IF WE HAD A COUPLE MORE WINS, YEAH IT WOULD’VE BEEN, BUT WE DIDN’T.  OKAY WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO, TO GET THIS TEAM GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, THAT’S WHAT WE’RE GONNA DO.

VO

THE SHAKY PLAY OF THE VETERANS HAS LED TO TIME ON THE PINE, A MESSAGE FROM MCCAFFREY TO STEP UP.
