THE DAILY WILDCAT Printing the news, sounding the alarm, and raising hell since 1899 DAILYWILDCAT.COM MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2014 SPORTS - 6 SOFTBALL BLOWS OUT NO. 4 ALABAMA SPORTS - 6 BASEBALL WINS OPENING SERIES WITH ROUT VOLUME 107 • ISSUE 97 Career change for dean BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA The Daily Wildcat In an effort to help realize the UA’s academic strategic plan, the dean of the UA College of Medicine — Tucson was recently appointed to two new positions. Dr. Steve Goldschmid will start his new appointments as associate vice president for clinical affairs at the Arizona Health Sciences Center and vice president of physician services for the University of Arizona Health Network on March 3. Dr. Joe G.N. “Skip” Garcia, UA senior vice president for health sciences, will serve as interim dean of the UA College of Medicine — Tucson. In his new positions, Goldschmid will focus on communication in clinical delivery, efficiency UA alum’s product may aid studying and productivity at the UA Colleges of Medicine in Tucson and Phoenix, Garcia said. Goldschmid will also improve how the Health Sciences Center interacts with individuals in the community and seek opportunities to set up new clinics, Garcia added. “The success of the Arizona Health Sciences Center is really dependent on the success of the health network,” Garcia said. He said if the health network delivers better care, it will enhance the academic mission of the university. Never Settle, the UA’s strategic academic plan, focuses on partnership and engagement in the community, as well as on providing students with hands-on learning opportunities. “I think in the next six months, Dr. Goldschmid will have a significant impact on the care delivery that we’re talking about,” Garcia said. “I think all of these will make us very much stronger and more accomplished also on a very steep trajectory to achieving some academic success.” The new positions were created as a response to leadership needs at the UA’s clinical programs, according to George Humphrey, assistant vice president of AHSC’s office of public affairs. Having these leadership positions is common at academic health centers in the U.S., Humphrey added. “We’re very pleased that Dr. Goldschmid has accepted this position, for he has great strength in clinical programs and clinical practice operations,” Humphrey said in an email statement. “He has NEW POSITION, 3 MEN’S BASKETBALL BAD OMEN No. 2 Arizona’s 69-66 double overtime loss at arch rival ASU could be the first of many unless it improves offensively BY ELIZABETH EATON The Daily Wildcat ARTS & LIFE - 10 WOODY ALLEN EMBROILED IN CONTROVERSY OPINIONS - 4 E-BOOKS NOT BOUGHT, BUT LEASED INSTEAD FIND US ONLINE ‘Like‘ us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter Find us on Tumblr ON OUR WEBSITE For breaking news and multimedia coverage check out Energy drinks aren’t the only way to stay up and study. Tyler Johansen, the president of Brainiac Supplements and a UA alumnus, said he first got the idea for creating a healthy supplement to improve cognitive function when he struggled to focus during his four years here. “When I was here at the UA, I started buying supplements one by one, just the individual ingredient, and tried to figure out what would help me concentrate in class,” Johansen said. Johansen partnered with Mahdi Pessarakli, the medical and marketing director of Brainiac Supplements, to refine a formula packed with vitamins and herbs to help improve memory, concentration and focus. The two began marketing their product, which they named Study Buddy, to college campuses across Arizona and California. “Every major university between Tucson and Los Angeles carries the product,” Johansen said. “Every Circle K in Arizona and Nevada carries the product, and we sell a bunch online nationwide.” Since the product’s launch four years ago, the number of consumers using it has rapidly increased. Pessarakli said he would conservatively estimate that about 1,000 students on each campus that sells Study Buddy actively use it. Johansen and Pessarakli said they are hoping to increase Study Buddy’s reach by not only expanding to other colleges, but also by creating products similar to Study Buddy that target other age groups. “We’ve got a senior formula, a baby boomer geriatric formula coming out,” Johansen said. “We’ve got a kids version coming out. We’ve talked about an infant type of deal and a few other formulas, all-around cognitive function.” The product targeting children would be intended to optimize pediatric development, so children could learn appropriately and enhance overall classroom performance. A version of Study Buddy for mature adults would try to help optimize brain function. “The broader vision of the company is to become a development group DAILYWILDCAT.COM STUDY BUDDY, 3 REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/THE DAILY WILDCAT ARIZONA RESERVES watch the last few seconds of regulation of the Wildcats’ 69-66 double overtime loss to ASU at Wells Fargo Arena on Friday. Arizona has struggled offensively during its last four games and the bench scored no points against ASU. BY JAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat T EMPE, Ariz. — The old saying goes, “Defense wins championships,” but in most sports, including basketball, the team that scores the most points wins. If No. 2 Arizona men’s basketball doesn’t fix its offensive woes, it’ll be in for a short NCAA tournament run. The Wildcats have had problems making free throws all year, and now they have to worry about scoring in the run of play. “Our offense is continuing to put more and more pressure on our defense,” head coach Sean Miller said. “You can only guard so well. We missed a ton of free throws, and, heck, we missed a ton of free throws all year. Eventually, it’s going to run its course, and you’re going to lose because we’re leaving too many points on the table.” The Wildcats only managed 66 points despite playing 10 extra minutes in their loss at ASU. Yes, the referees did not call technical fouls on ASU for throwing objects on the court, storming the court early, allowing their bench to run into the court early or hanging on the rim on the last score, but officiating has never been the Pac12’s strong suit. It’s also been established that rushing the court early is perfectly acceptable in the Conference of Champions. The reason Arizona lost is MEN’S BASKETBALL, 6 QUOTE TO NOTE “ The Olympics are supposed to be a celebration of athletic talent and ability, not a double-edged sword to hurt, shame or exploit its female participants.” OPINIONS — 4 The Daily Wildcat While people may be hesitant to admit how many sexual partners they’ve had, many UA students said they don’t think it matters. There may, however, be some social assumptions tied to the question of how many partners a person has had. Jill Verbridge, a nurse practitioner at Campus Health Service, said the questionnaires people fill out when getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases ask how many sexual partners the person has had because having more partners can lead to a higher risk of having an infection. The answer to that question doesn’t change the testing process or the prevention education people receive when they get tested. It’s more important that people are smart about using protection when having sex, regardless of the number of partners they choose to have sex with, Verbridge said. “It only takes one,” Verbridge said. “It matters if people are protecting themselves or not.” Being familiar with a partner and their sexual history also helps reduce the risk of getting STDs, she added. According to Campus Health Service, in 2013, 70 percent of UA students reported being sexually active that school year, and 4 percent of students reported having six or more partners in a year. Nathan Maynard, a pre-business freshman, said having had a lot of sexual partners isn’t a huge deal and shouldn’t matter because it’s a personal choice. There is, however, a double standard in how society views what’s OK regarding how many sexual partners a woman has compared to how many a man has, Maynard added. “[Society wants] women to be … virgins until they’re married,” Maynard said, “but they want men to be out there all the time getting it NUMBER, 3 2 FIVE BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA 9 FOUR eleven 14 15 13 ONE 7 eight 19 / 10 86 / 61 72 / 52 70 percent of UA students report being sexually active; more sexual partners can lead to risk of infection THREE Eric, Canada Phillip, Australia Flynn, Texas LOW What’s your number? twelve ten CLOUDY 84 50 six HI nine WEATHER GRAPHIC BY JESSIE WEBSTER
