A look into the life of a DACA beneficiary By Amy Byres

@amybyres12 Editor’s Note: This is the first profile in a series on DACA recipients. Continue to stay updated with the Daily Lobo for more information. When she was just 2-years-old, Daniela Fry immigrated to the United States from Mexico with her mother. And her life changed dramatically when former President Barack Obama signed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy. “One of the first things that was interesting when DACA came out was how somebody made me feel important,” she said, now 21 and a senior at the University of New Mexico majoring in international management. For the first time in Fry’s life, she saw the possibility of going to college and working legally. “(DACA) allowed me to have hope and have faith a little bit more, not only for myself, but for a lot of other people like me,” Fry said. Her grandmother decided to help her apply to become a Dreamer. “It was defiantly costly, time consuming and very, very tedious,” Fry said. Her grandmother hired a lawyer

Lobos take home championship title Hogwarts By Tyrell Natewa and Robert Maler

@DailyLoboSports @Robert_Maler The Lobos ended the season as champions again, picking up their second national championship in three years by capturing the 2017 NCAA Championship title in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday. The women’s cross country team is no stranger to performing at an elite level, having finished in seventh place at the same venue last season. In fact, the squad has finished in the top 10 for eight consecutive years after Saturday’s performance, winning the whole thing in 2015. Head coach Joe Franklin said this year’s squad was different, but the end result was the same, as the University of New Mexico stood atop the national cross country landscape with almost a completely different roster than two years ago. One thing that didn’t happen for New Mexico in 2015 was a firstplace individual performance at nationals. Sophomore transfer Ednah Kurgat accomplished that feat this year, winning comfortably with a time of 19:19.42 in the six-

kilometer run. The time also set a new meet record for the national championship run E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park, a release said. The performance capped an undefeated run for Kurgat, as she was the top runner in each of the five meets she competed in this season. “I was so excited,” Kurgat said in a release. “I don’t take anything for granted. My challenges are behind me. They all act as a stepping stone to where I am today.” Alice Wright, was also a part of the 2015 championship team, made the most of her additional training time when the senior sat out the 2017 Mountain Region Championships last week to prepare. She was part of a quartet of Lobos to log a sub-20 minute run time. Wright finished the race with a time of 19:49.73 to place 14th overall but was actually the number four scorer for her team. Weini Kelati came in seventh place overall at 19:35.77, and Charlotte Prouse was 12th after finishing the race in 19:48.93, as New Mexico grabbed four of the top-14 scoring slots. The performance earned all four women All-American honors for finishing in the top 40 of the field, marking the fourth consecutive

year Wright has earned All-American accolades in cross country. All five Lobo scorers placed in the top 25 in 2015, and although the team didn’t duplicate that feat, New Mexico still had some room to work with. Alondra Negrón Texidor rounded out the scoring for New Mexico with a run of 20:35.67, which was good enough for 85th place in the 255-woman field. Alex Buck and Kieran Casey

didn’t figure into the scoring but finished 105th and 123rd in the race, respectively. Negrón Texidor’s performance gave the Lobos a team total of just 90 points, edging out San Francisco (105) and No. 1 Colorado (139) to take home the hardware. New Mexico also scored under 100 points in 2015, posting a mark of just 49 points to win the title in

The Student Union Building Atrium will fill with muggles, witches and wizards Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as part of this year’s Harry Potter Day. “Each year we gather more and more folks. What was sort of a noontime stop by and see some decorations has quickly turned into the Student Union Building being turned into the Great Hall with candles hanging from the ceiling,” said Student Activities Specialist, Rudy Montoya of Ravenclaw. The SUB Atrium will be filled with many different activities for community members of the wizarding world to enjoy. This includes: a photo booth, trivia games, butterbeer and button decorating, according to Student Activities Center employee Anna Padilla of Hufflepuff.

to help them fill out the demanding application. “I would not (have) been able to do it on my own; I had a lot of family support to go through this whole process,” Fry said. Fry’s application was approved, and she officially became a Dreamer in 2012. “It was awesome, because all my life I’ve been set back from some opportunities, because I’m not a U.S. citizen,” Fry said. “In high school I wanted to go through this nursing program, and I qualified for everything. The only thing I didn’t qualify for was, I wasn’t a U.S. Citizen.” It was special for Fry to qualify for DACA, because it was the first time she qualified for something. “The one time I actually qualified for something, it was something big,” she said. Fry was able to attend UNM with DACA, and today she hopes to work for an organization that will allow her to travel, such as Disney. “DACA has made me appreciate life just in every way. DACA is not just given to you,” Fry said. “It’s a process to be a Dreamer.” She has spent her college career working multiple jobs and accepting no less than an outstanding academic performance — her cumulative GPA is 3.75. “The biggest reason why I have the grades that I have is because it is costing me, not just the money but time and the effort and everything that I’ve done in college,” Fry said. “Every penny that I have made, the hours I’ve worked, the sleep that I’ve lost, everything, it

dominating fashion over the best the nation had to offer. Josh Kerr also competed for New Mexico as an individual in the men’s 10-kilometer run but finished well behind the pace he ran at the Mountain Region Championships, coming in 224th place with a time of 32:04.68. Northern Arizona took home

has cost me.” She is not only a student but also a business owner. What started out as a hobby, quickly grew into a profession. She said she originally started making chocolate-covered strawberries and now, she sells chocolate-covered preztels, marshmallows and other treats from her business, Dipped by Dee. Along with her hard work, she has also embodied what some might see as resilience. In February of this year, Fry fell asleep at the wheel and crashed her car. Fortunately she sustained no injuries, but her car did. At the time, she was juggling working at Turtle Mountain Brewing Company, volunteering on a hot air balloon crew and running Dipped by Dee as a full-time college student. She said she was waking up early to chase balloons and awake past midnight for about two weeks, trying to juggle all her tasks. Every year Fry fills out paperwork for financial aid, and every year she receives none. Still, she wanted to study abroad in Spain. As a DACA recipient, she was required to have an expedition on her advance parole, meaning she had to get permission from the government to leave the U.S. and still be able to return. “My advance parole took too long, and I wasn’t able to study abroad. I had everything lined up for me, everything, paperwork, all the funding,” Fry said. After President Trump was elected, Fry, and her family knew

DACA was in danger. “As soon as Trump came into office, my parents told me, ‘You need to act,’” Fry said. In the past, she has been discriminated against and treated unfairly through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Fry said. However, after she married her husband, James, around one year ago, Immigration Services were more than happy to work with Fry and her husband. “I applied for an expedition on my advance parole, and they didn’t care, they didn’t expedite me. They didn’t even respond to the request of an expedition. (But) when I married James, they found out he is in the military, I have this completely different attitude from them,” she said. Fry’s husband would be on deployment the date Immigration Services needed to interview the couple to ensure the legitimacy of their marriage. Because of this, the couple had to request an expedition to be interviewed early, and Immigration got back to them within a week. “I walked out of there in tears. I was so confused. How was that so fast?” Fry said The couple was deemed legitimate, and now Fry has a green card. She is currently working towards dual-citizenship. “Now I’m in danger. We need to come up with the money, and we need to start the process, because we don’t know what’s going to happen,” Fry said. For Fry, DACA gave her the first steps to much of her life.

Aggies trample Lobos with 19 point lead By Matthew Narvaiz @matt_narvaiz

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — No, the reception for former Aggie head coach and current Lobo incumbent Paul Weir wasn’t a pleasant one, as the Lobos visited the Aggies on Friday night. And no, the University of New Mexico didn’t get any love either from a hostile crowd at its rival’s home base. Ultimately, rebounding and second chance points from the Aggies — and especially guard Zach Lofton — helped elevate NMSU (2-1) to a comfortable 75-56 victory over UNM (2-1) at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Entering Friday night, it was not unknown that Weir was the overarching theme of the matchup. So it was only fair to ask first year NMSU head coach Chris Jans if the team was focused on said storyline prior to the Aggies’ win. “Believe it or not, we never talked about him,”Jans said. “Our staff never talked about him, even informally. Our team never talked about him — I don’t know what they talked about when we weren’t around, but we never addressed it one time. It was business as usual.” Lofton, a graduate student new to the NMSU program, willed his way to a game high 28 points — and the Lobos had no answer, though Weir said it’s hard to prepare for a player with the skill set he brings to the table. “He was elite and we talked a lot about how to game plan for him,” Weir said. “And when you get up there and play him in person it’s a little bit

University of New Mexico men’s basketball head coach Paul Weir hangs his head late in the second half of the Lobos vs. Aggies game at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces, Nov. 18, 2017. Weir made his first return to his former home court, upon taking the head coach position at UNM after a 10-year stint at NMSU as assistant coach, associate head coach for five years and one year as head coach during the 2016-17 season.

different. I thought overall he just put a lot of pressure on our defense.” But it wasn’t just Lofton, though, as much as it was the Lobos getting dominated on the boards. They were outrebounded 50-25 in the game, with the Aggies scoring 23 points on second chance opportunities. Aggie senior forward Jemerrio Jones brought down a game high 16 rebounds, something Lofton said was a key to NMSU’s victory.

However, after a couple missed shots from the Aggies to open the game, senior forward Sam Logwood put the Lobos up first in the game, scoring the first four of the game to put UNM up 4-0 early on. Eventually, the Lobos got the game up to a seven point lead a little over three minutes in, but NMSU found its groove and went on a 6-0 run shortly after a 3-pointer was made by junior guard Chris McNeal.

The run had NMSU’s crowd going. But the Aggies grabbed its first lead on a dunk from Aggie junior guard Sidy N’Dir to put them up 1716 halfway through the first half. Shortly thereafter, McNeal gave the Lobos the 20-19 lead on two made free throws before the Aggies throttled its way to a 27-22 lead with under five minutes to play in the first half. Eventually, the Aggies exited the first half with a 31-28 lead over

UNM, though the Lobos alleviated an even larger lead after freshman forward Vladimir Pinchuk scored in the closing seconds on a layup. Pinchuk led the Lobos with eight points in the first half. The Aggies started where they left off, scoring six points on two 3-pointers to open up the second half of play from N’Dir and Lofton. Junior guard Troy Simons, who had a technical in the first half picked up one in the second as well, ultimately sending him to the locker room. NMSU maintained their lead most of the second half, but UNM got close when they brought the game within five points a little more than halfway until the end of the game. But in the last five minutes of the game, the Aggies stepped on the throttle. After holding a 12 point lead over UNM with 5:17 to go, NMSU finished the game out scoring the Lobos 7-1 and grabbing the 19 point win at home. As a team, UNM shot 38.5 percent from the field compared to NMSU’s 39.1 percent showing. The Aggies, however, got up 12 more shots than the Lobos. Leading the Lobos in scoring was junior guard Anthony Mathis, who had 14 points. McNeal had 10 and Pinchuk finished with 9. Up next for the Lobos is a home match against Tennessee Tech on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. Matthew Narvaiz is a senior sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.

UNM should be careful with new online Banner overhaul Editor, While I was pleasantly surprised at the news that Banner is undergoing a “massive overhaul,” I immediately felt a sense of dread as I read the UNM News story, ”Campus-wide system undergoing massive overhaul”(Nov. 15). That dread deepened when I read the Banner 9 information page linked in the article. There is a timeline at the very bottom of that webpage. I panicked when I saw that the number of hours dedicated to the “Reach out and Touch Someone” phase, which includes user training among other tasks, is only six hours for the “customer team.” I am assuming, of course, that the “customer team” is providing, or at

I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things I would love to be doing, and I am very frustrated by it.” Prosecuting political enemies in the absence

of any probable cause is a hallmark of radical regimes that have seized power and don’t know what to do with it. The Soviets did it. The Fascists did it. The Iranian revolutionaries did it. Now Trump and the Republicans are doing it. What else are they going to do, Govern?

least overseeing, the end-user testing, because I cannot find this phase of the rollout anywhere else in the project plan. The Banner 9 implementation requires “new infrastructure (and)...will impact faculty staff, and students, as well as most campus functional areas such as Admissions, Registrar, Student Accounts, Financial Aid, Advancement Human resources, Finance, Payroll, etc.” (Quoted from the Banner 9 information webpage.) Is the University going to allow an implementation of this magnitude to take place based on so few hours of end-user testing? Just six hours, ahead of the biggest implementation of new software University-wide since UNMJobs 2.0, which (no surprise) still has bugs months after roll-out, in spite of considerable testing beforehand? Even if it’s just an upgrade, this is still pretty major, as it affects all of the core areas.

Every UNM administrator knows they must face a huge learning curve whenever new software is rolled out, and the worst thing that can (and does) happen is being forced to go through that learning curve while bugs are being identified and updates are being made. Most unit administrators are still overwhelmed by all of the new University-wide software that has been dumped in their laps over the past three years. In addition to UNMJobs 2.0 there was the implementation of the new RPT App for Retention, Promotion and Tenure; EvaluationKit; Chrome River and a plethora of other new processes released by the Office of Faculty Affairs and Services. Many of our harried staff members have lost their own assistants and cannot replace them due to budget cuts. Staff morale on this campus simply cannot take yet another pounding, something that could be

avoided with the use of proper project management tools. The only thing that can’t be avoided now is the surprise in which this news reached campus. The new promises ahead are a pleasant surprise, but most unpleasant is the surprise timeline for implementation. Banner 9 is expected to be working side by side with Banner 8 by February? And by the end of Spring semester, Banner 8 will be phased out? I am not opposed to this Banner upgrade, as it is no doubt needed and necessary. But, for the good of all administrative staff at UNM, I am pleading for adequate enduser testing before the rollout.

Fusion Dance Club offers chance to de-stress

Nicholas Nuñez / Daily Lobo / @dailylobo

UNM’s Fusion Dance Club practices at Johnson Gym on Nov. 19, 2017.

By Ariel Lutnesky @ArielLutnesky


If you’re feeling the need to relieve some stress as finals draw nearer, you might want to hop on over to the Fusion Dance Club and get those hips moving. The University of New Mexico’s Fusion Dance Club is all about combining hip-hop with other dance styles, according to Daniel Rodriguez, the club president and founder. “The club is mostly hiphop-based, so we do dances, but the main goal was to bring together people from different backgrounds to dance,” Rodriguez said. “Coming to the University

and not finding a club that had hip-hop really encouraged me to start one.” While there are other kinds of fusion dances, Rodriguez’s style is more of his own invention, he said. According to, a lot of fusion is partner dancing with elements drawn from other types of partner dancing. The Fusion Dance Club, however, is less partner dancing and more choreographed group dancing with major draws from hip-hop and cheerleading-like elements. “Our goal as a club is basically to just express our appreciation for the art of dance,” said Myrtha Sebastian, one of the crew leaders. “We don’t really have a specific genre that we pay attention to; we

kind of just go with whatever the funk is.” The club calls itself Fusion due to its ability to fuse different elements together, Rodriguez said. “When it comes to different styles of dances, we do contemporary and hip-hop, Bollywood and hip-hop; we do different kinds of dances that come from different cultures.” Adrian Samaniego, a club member, said there’s a lot more to their dancing than just moving to the music. “I just thought that it was about dance, but now, I do realize that a lot of the dances and a lot of the things we do, they have a bigger meaning behind it,” Samaniego said. The group tried out for Lobo’s Got Talent with choreography meant to

promote suicide awareness. “Instead of just shaking our booties, we try to communicate a message,” said Kaisa Tihkan, the other crew leader. The club tries to get involved with the community in various ways, such as a fundraising bake sale for Casa Esperanza, an organization that helps families going through healthcare and financial problems, Sebastian said. The Fusion Dance Club also participated in a flash mob and is currently preparing for the Twinkle Light Parade. “There are a lot of experiences,” Sebastian said. “There are definitely a lot of unmentioned adventures, like there are some times where we’re at the tumbling gym, and we’d have to walk somewhere, or we’d need a ride; it’s always fun.” There are also some job opportunities, like getting to dance for a television show, she said. “I took it upon myself to take that opportunity,” Sebastian said. “I figured that I don’t have that experience, so I want to get that under my belt. I spent a whole night just hanging out with a different dance crew. These people were beyond good, because this was for a TV show. But it was cool that I got to work for them and work with those talented people, because they kind of dedicate their entire lives to dance, and it’s a whole different perspective.” In terms of just coming to the club meetings themselves, both Tihkan and Samaniego said being a part of the group has helped them with dealing with the stresses of school. “It gets me excited about different things, like when I have a test coming up on Thursday, but also my club on Thursday, I’m

like, ‘Ok, I do the test, and then I have the club, so I’ll be fine,’” Tihkan said. “It’s inspirational, and it keeps me excited.” “Don’t get me wrong, there are some times where I’m like, ‘I have to do all this, but I also have dance practice,’” Sebastian said. “It’s not stressing to me, but time makes me stressed, and this obviously takes time. But it’s a good commitment, because you come here to dance.” Sebastian added that they welcome people of all levels of dance experience. “What we strive for in this club is a non-judgemental zone, so if you’re terrible at dancing, you are more than welcome,” she said. “We will embrace your bad moves. We’ll help you improve. We’ll make sure everyone’s looking good. But if you’re shy, if you’re super outgoing or if you’re on the fence about doing dance, I say give it a shot.” “I’ve been dancing for six or seven years, but I’ve been dancing at a dance company, so we’d do these stage performances, and now coming here, it’s just really nice to actually dance for the community of the school and the people,” Tihkan said. Anyone interested in joining Fusion Dance Club can send an email to and they’ll welcome you at their next meeting, Rodriguez said. There is also a $10 membership fee that comes with a free hat.

Children’s Campus helps out student-parents By Kyle Land

@kyleoftheland As any student will tell you, college can be one of the most demanding times in a person’s life. Between classes, jobs and a social life, there is very little free time. This situation is more stressful when the student is also raising a child. Currently, around 26 percent of all undergraduate students are also parents, according to a study by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. For these parents, every day can be a constant juggle of responsibilities which could be detrimental to their studies. However, the University of New

Mexico provides resources to assist student-parent’s academic success, while making sure they are also there for their children. One of these resources is the Parent Study Nights hosted at the University’s high-demand Children’s Campus. Currently, the Children’s Campus serves around 350 children — 1,100 children remain on the waiting list. Plans to expand the Children’s Campus have been discussed by the Board of Regents since 2008. “(We) decided we were going to implement study nights to remove the additional barriers that student-parents face,” said Victoria Dimas, program specialist at the Children’s Campus. During these study sessions, any student-parent enrolled in

a higher education institution may come to the campus, where the staff will not only watch their children for the three-hour session but also provide dinner free of charge. “We actually receive funding through the Childcare and Adult Food Program so that we can provide dinner for the children here,” Dimas said. The food program is also flexible for children who cannot eat certain foods due to allergies or religious preferences. “My kids have a gluten intolerance,” said Victoria Martinez, a student-parent who utilizes the study nights. “And they actually provide substitutes, which is great.” For many of these parents, such programs serve as a lifeline for their education, providing

help where there would be none otherwise. An Endicott College study on parents at four-year universities found that 54 percent of student-parents identify as single parents. While many programs for student-parents exist at UNM, getting that information to parents on campus has proved a challenge. “That was a problem that I, as a parent, had,” said Jennefer Hansen, another student-parent. “Nobody knows what (the programs) are.” The study night program is only in its second year, and Hansen is hopeful that it will continue to grow given the large amount of parents at UNM. “It is such a huge population, but it is really, really underrepresented,” she said. Student-parents can also

find resources at the Women’s Resource Center, as well as at Lobo Parenting Cubs, an oncampus club created to support student-parents. For the student-parents involved, having access to these programs benefits both them and their children. “Just to be able to have peace and quiet and to have someone else feeding the children…really makes it a whole lot easier,” Martinez said. The next study session will be held at the Children’s Campus, Dec. 5 from 5:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m. Kyle Land is a news editor for the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at or on Twitter @kyleoftheland.


UNM needs to tackle its enrollment problem By Rebecca Brusseau @r_brusseau As Lobos, we naturally want the best for our University, but there are setbacks that are reflected in the decreasing enrollment rates, which cannot be ignored. Poor and decreasing enrollment numbers can cause a snowball effect of hardships at the University of New Mexico. In the past year, UNM has seen almost a 6 percent drop in freshman enrollment. There is a range of issues contributing to poor enrollment numbers in recent years, but largely the issues are in terms of finances. In the past few months, the College of Arts and Sciences has proposed a raise in tuition for its students. The exact amount of change in tuition per student is not set in stone, but this is an issue that is only exacerbated by the decreased Lottery Scholarship funding for students. The Lottery is a great resource for UNM students. However, when this resource is decreased, it in turn also removes much student

motivation to remain in state when one could possibly apply for scholarships to schools outside of New Mexico. One of the proposed solutions to take effect in the 2018-2019 school year is mandatory campus housing for incoming freshmen. This solution seeks to enhance attendance numbers and ideally address dropout rates in underclassmen. However, this change may only increase attendance costs and further lower enrollment rates. Mandatory campus housing may also turn some students away if they are already in need of financial assistance in order to cover the lowered monetary benefits of the Lottery Scholarship. The change in freshman requirements may not have been too much of an issue if the Lottery coverage was not steadily decreasing over the past few years. While some of the students attending UNM are not affected, because they may not be using the Lottery due to their GPA or residency status, getting a scholarship in general is not an easy task. When I was entering UNM, I

knew that I needed to apply for more scholarships to help my family afford school without getting involved in the vicious cycle of student loans. I was confident in my ability, given my high GPA and my set major that I knew I wanted to pursue. To my own dismay, I found I was not selected to receive any financial aid beyond the Lottery Scholarship and the Bridge to Success grant. This has made affording college hard and is still an obstacle I am trying to overcome. I know that I am not the only one that experiences the difficulty of getting scholarships. The monetary cost of living in the UNM area may also be driving students away. On campus, even the cost of food is expensive. For example, at some of the Mercados in various halls on campus, a basic tuna sandwich can cost upwards of $4 plus tax. A basic, balanced meal from any of these convenient eateries can cost around $10. This makes wanting to go to McDonald’s for a greasy value meal sound like a better option.

On the other hand, for students coming to UNM from a city that does not necessarily require one’s own mode of transportation, living close to UNM is probably one of the first requirements for attending this school. For non-residents coming to UNM, housing options include on-campus housing which usually runs more than $650 for a room that is possibly shared with an unfamiliar UNM student or living off-campus where the lower-end apartments that are just blocks from campus may be around the same price. In this case, living a few blocks away from campus may also include a risk of being a victim of the city’s high crime rates. Another issue that affects enrollment rates at UNM is the infamous notoriety that Albuquerque has in terms of crime. Albuquerque is known as one of the most dangerous cities in the country, and this contributes to a reluctance to attend school right in the heart of the city where crimes are mostly concentrated in the UNM/Nob Hill area.

This is not to say that high crime rates make Albuquerque a horrible place to live — I was born and raised here, and I personally feel comfortable being in a city that I know like the back of my hand. However, I also recognize that living in Albuquerque and attending this University in the epicenter of the city’s crime does require a heightened amount of awareness of one’s surroundings. Going forward into a new era of academia under the leadership of the new president, Garnette S. Stokes, hopefully changes can be made to raise enrollment numbers, lower costs and make a safer environment for this campus. Perhaps in the years to follow, UNM can find means to prosper by gaining credibility for our great academic programs and access to resources within a relatively untapped community.

Potter Day

The butterbeer is “yummy” and the cookies, made by UNM Catering, are imprinted by Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin seals, Montoya said. The button-making station will have different quotes, spells, images — all things Harry Potter that can be pressed into a button. Among all the festivities, there also will be a face painter present for participants to support their houses where everyone can see. “She did a pretty good job of painting all sorts of different designs, everything from the lightning bolt scar to the house logo,” Montoya said, speaking of a previous Harry Potter Day experience. “She actually painted a blue raven on my face.” Some take it one step further

and dress up in full character to not only enchant themselves for a day but to enchant everyone around them as well. “I remember the year before last, there was a gal who was a part of Geeks Who Drink (who) came dressed up as Rita Skeeter, and in full character, full costume the entire time,” Montoya said. This event is a chance for students to escape the curses of homework, exams and worries of school. It is a chance to brew in the poisons of joy for the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter. “It’s fun to get my mind off the insanity of college life and embrace (my) inner Hogwarts student for a day,” said junior Joshua Stepp of Hufflepuff. “This event is great for bring-

ing together people from different backgrounds for one common outcome, to geek-out together,” Padilla said. “It makes the campus feel a little friendlier.” This event aims to provide an escape for students and for attendees to have fun — the muggle world and wizarding world are brought together for a day at the University of New Mexico. “There is sort of a UNM school spirit that happens but also a very Hogwarts school spirit that is brought to UNM,” Montoya said. “So it’s the crossing over of worlds.” Amy Byres of Gryffindor is a culture reporter at the Daily Lobo.

Cameras aren’t good enough to fight crime By Ludella Awad @LudellaAwad The City of Albuquerque District Attorney’s office announced a new program to prevent and reduce crime — SCAN, or Security Camera Analytic Network. The idea is to encourage homes and businesses to register their cameras and join the security camera map. Every day in Albuquerque, we hear about crime, and it is often hard for investigators to pinpoint who was involved and what happened. Investigators try to utilize security cameras located near the area, hoping to get any information they can by obtaining relevant videos

of the crime. While some believe that the proposed security camera network will reduce Albuquerque’s high crime rate, a more effective approach would be to hire more police officers. Under the new initiative, SCAN would help police track a collection of videos available around an area that involved suspects and could provide more information about the crime or possibly identify an escape path. The process requires homeowners and businesses to register the camera online by answering some simple questions. This may sound like a good idea to reduce crime — setting up

a network of cameras — but focusing on hiring more police on the streets of our city instead could be a more effective solution to prevent or reduce crime closely. We need to proactively take care of the crime problem in Albuquerque by having the police physically do something about crime and criminals without just depending on watching crime happen through a camera lens. Cameras are not the most effective way to deal with the crime situation in Albuquerque. “Public safety is about the whole community uniting against crime,” Mayor Berry said in a public announcement about the project. However, words alone won’t

help solve crime, and that is what has gotten us into trouble, with New Mexico leading the nation in property crime, according to a report by the FBI. Every time I am driving to school or work, I rarely ever see police on the streets, where they are desperately needed. Crime in Albuquerque has gotten way out of control. The mayor and City Council are not doing enough about crime and are letting the problem get out of hand. With robberies, thefts, rapes and other violent crimes, our city is top of the list for many types of criminal activities. We never hear about the good side of Albuquerque, just the negative side — Albuquerque, the city of crime.

Watching a suspect on your home security camera could also be risky and dangerous, because police might not get to your house in time to address the situation. Having more police visible would do more to prevent crime than more cameras would. We need to fix the situation in a smart way and put more police on the streets to reduce crime and not just rely on an army of security cameras.

UNM glides to victory after explosive opening By Matthew Narvaiz @matt_narvaiz Unlike the men’s team, the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team defeated the New Mexico State Aggies, 86-75, on Saturday afternoon at Dreamstyle Arena, improving the team to an unblemished record four games into the season. The win, however, wouldn’t have been possible without the Lobos (4-0) jumping out to an 18 point lead at halftime, which was propelled by a 21-2 run early on. UNM opened the game on a made 3-pointer from senior guard Cherise Beynon, seven seconds into the game. But, midway through the first, the Aggies (1-2) grabbed charge when they went ahead on a shot from range from

run, this time a 10-0 run to put UNM ahead by 20 points. In similar fashion to the second quarter, NMSU climbed its way back to only a 10 point deficit by the end of the third, with the Lobos leading 60-50. Again, at the start of the fourth quarter, UNM opened up the frame scoring first, on a Beynon layup. But NMSU’s Williams quickly answered with a 3-pointer, bringing the Aggies within single digits. The Aggies would get the game to within seven points three minutes into the fourth, but UNM — with the help of Beynon’s 12 and senior guard Alex Lapeyrolerie’s 11 points in the fourth, respectively — the Lobos played the latter half of the frame by matching NMSU’s points, giving them no breathing room. Eventually, the Lobos grabbed the 11 point victory over in-state foe NMSU.

Lobo head coach Mike Bradbury said it was a game that didn’t bode well for his team as far as it being a breeze, but that it was one that had its tough moments. “It was the game that was expected — hard fought,” Bradbury said. “It was a game that had big runs both ways. They fought back, and I thought it was really competitive. I thought both teams really competed at a high level.” As a team, UNM shot 35.1 percent from the field. Besides Beynon’s performance in scoring, the Lobos saw three others who scored in double digits. Both Buck and Lapeyrolerie finished with 17, and Nunn had 12 points as well as 13 rebounds, giving her the only double double for the team. Meanwhile, NMSU was led by junior guard Dominique Mills, who had 20 points. Sophomore forward Gia Pack finished with 18 and junior

Shortly after, though, senior guard Tesha Buck launched up a 3 of her own, ultimately igniting the 21-2 run that extended through the last half of the first quarter and early part of the second quarter — a run that put the Lobos up 32-14 with five minutes until the half. Slowly but surely, in the remaining five minutes before halftime, the Aggies chipped away at the Lobos’ lead and entered halftime only down by 11 points, 35-24. The Lobos got right back to work to open up the second half of play, with junior forward Jaisa Nunn scoring on a layup to put UNM ahead by 13. That layup, however, ignited another Lobo

UNM dealt sixth consecutive loss in tight match By Robert Maler and Cameron Goeldner @Robert_Maler @goeldfinger Senior quarterback Lamar Jordan seemed in line to be the hero after he engineered a late go-ahead touchdown drive but left too much time on the clock as UNLV crashed the party to snatch the victory on Friday night. New Mexico was dealt its sixth consecutive loss, falling in its final home game of the season 38-35 to UNLV. The loss dropped the team to 1-6 in conference play and 3-8 overall, but the head coach seemed pleased with the effort. “I’m proud of him,” head coach Bob Davie said of Jordan. “It’s a shame a game-winner wasn’t the game-winner. It’s tough for all the seniors with the families here, but I’m very proud of the effort and I thought Lamar (Jordan) did some excellent things.” UNLV scored on its first two possessions, taking a 10-0 lead about midway through the first quarter, and it looked like the Lobos might be in trouble early. The Rebels seemed to be in line for another score in the second quarter after driving to the New Mexico 35-yard line, but the Lobos stepped to get two big sacks to thwart UNLV’s opportunity. And then New Mexico appeared to find the offense that had been missing in action for much of

the season. Tyrone Owens broke free for a 67-yard run to set the Lobos up in the red zone, and Romell Jordan finished the job, plunging ahead for an 8-yard touchdown run to make the score 10-7. The Lobos forced a UNLV punt but had a lot of field ahead of them, as the punt was downed at the 2-yard line. New Mexico was up to the task though, traversing 98 yards on the ground to seize a 14-10 advantage with 3:26 remaining until halftime. But UNM was unable to protect the lead, surrendering two quick touchdowns to go back down by 10 points again, trailing 24-14 at the break. UNLV running back Lexington Thomas unleashed a 60-yard touchdown run on a drive that took just 38 seconds for the first quick hit. Then needed just one play to score again after quarterback Armani Rogers covered 83 yards on the ground to regain control of the game. Rogers and Thomas put up big numbers for the game - the quarterback accounted for 404 yards of offense (193 rushing), while Thomas ran for 127 yards. Lamar Jordan helped close the gap on the opening drive of the third quarter, scampering 40 yards to pay dirt to cut the lead to 24-21. And the defense recovered from some shaky play to make a goal line stand and force a UNLV field goal, which made it a 27-21 game. After the teams traded punts, New Mexico was almost hit by the

turnover bug again. Romell Jordan failed to clearly field a punt, and UNLV was in good position to jump on the ball and build on its lead. But special teamer Thomas Vieira emerged with the ball to maintain possession for the Lobos. The offense went three-and-out but got another chance to reclaim the lead on its first drive of the fourth quarter. New Mexico covered 80 yards in just six plays - all on the ground again - as Owens put the Lobos back on top 28-27 after a 2-yard touchdown run. UNLV’s Rogers almost escaped for another touchdown run on the ensuing drive, but New Mexico was able to force the quarterback down and hold the Rebels to another field goal, giving the away team a 30-28 lead. After each team failed to move the ball and was forced to punt, time was winding down for New Mexico to make a comeback. Still trailing by two with a little over three minutes to play, UNM’s senior quarterback went to work. Lamar Jordan moved the sticks with a 13-yard run and delivered the go-ahead score after sprinting right up the middle for a 40-yard

touchdown run to move out in front 35-30. He initially converted a two-point conversion after the touchdown, but UNM was flagged for holding, and the team had to settle for an extra point instead. Jordan’s heroics put the Lobos in good shape for the win, but there was still 1:11 left on the clock, which ended up being plenty of time for UNLV. Rogers converted a big third down and followed it up with a big 50-yard completion to get in scoring range. He capped the drive by hitting Kendall Keys on a 14-yard strike and went to the receiver again to pick up the twopoint conversion, putting the Rebels ahead 38-35. Lamar Jordan still had 28 seconds to work with to tie or win the game, but the Rebels were sitting on the deep pass trying to preserve the win themselves. The quarterback was almost intercepted after he threw into double coverage on first down and was picked off when he tried it again on the next play. The Lobos only attempted four passes during the game but didn’t complete any of them.

UNLV was able to take a knee and allow the final seconds to tick off the clock and spoil “senior night” for the Lobos, sending UNM off with its sixth consecutive loss. The Lobos ended the night with three rushers eclipsing the 100-yard mark, with Owens leading the cause with 164 yards on the ground. New Mexico will end the season on the road against San Diego State. The game will take place on Friday, Nov. 24 at 1:30 p.m. and will be aired on CBS Sports Network.

BioBlog: Climate change and me By Nick Freymueller

Editor’s Note: This piece was originally published online in the UNM BioBlog on Nov. 9, 2017, written by Nick Freymueller. This is part of our project to help connect the Daily Lobo audience to more members of our community. I grew up in the medium-sized town of Fairbanks, Alaska (population: currently about 35,000). Fairbanks epitomizes the concept of “remote” as most Americans would imagine it. Any population center larger than a few hundred people is hundreds of miles away: Anchorage is a six-hour drive (eight hours if you’re my parents), and the nearest major American city, Seattle, is over a threeand-a-half-hour flight away. And during the winter, Fairbanks is cold; as in minus 40 degrees cold. Most people are used to the idea that the temperature decreases when going up in elevation. However, we typically have a temperature inversion in Fairbanks following the principle that colder air sinks. While it may be minus 45 degrees down in the valley, the ridgetops may only be minus 5 degrees. This can change sometimes in the winter when we get blown with the Chinook winds out of the south;

we will get a low cloud ceiling, which traps all the heat and melts all the snow on the roads. When the clouds leave, the temperature can quickly drop 75 degrees overnight down to minus 35 degrees. This then refreezes the roads into a network of ice rinks. This typically causes, as you would expect, absolute mayhem on the roads. I would typically see anywhere from two to eight cars in the ditch, depending on severity, driving the three miles into town. Schools were never canceled because the weather got too cold, but it always got canceled when the roads melted and re-froze. When I went to elementary school in the early 2000s, schools were closed due to icy roads maybe once a year; this typically only occurred in January through March. However, by the time I finished high school, the roads would melt and re-freeze at least half a dozen times a year. Throughout this time, we also started getting melted and re-frozen roads in October and November. (We just had this happen again the day before Halloween.) Now that I have finished college and am in graduate school, this happens up to ten times annually. This is a characteristic example of an increase in the frequency of anomalous warm events. This is a

common pattern associated with climate change, which has been linked to destructive hurricanes that are increasingly more common and more severe. This increase in the frequency of warm events is especially poignant in the Arctic, where the effects of climate change are most rapidly felt; this is due to the Arctic sea ice and continental glaciers shrinking reflecting less and less sunlight and heat. While the changes I have seen growing up are significant, they are not the most severe in Alaska. The small village of Shishmaref on the Bering Strait has a population of about 600 Americans. Rising sea levels have forced the inhabitants to vote on relocating their entire town miles inland and away from the sea. These rising sea levels are expected to further rise and encroach on civilization in the coming decades. This should raise concern for the country, as over 120 million Americans currently live in coastal counties. This means that massive population centers like New York, Los Angeles, Houston and the entire state of Florida could be underwater in the future. Climate change is arguably one of the most pressing issues of our time. Since humans discovered that the combustion of fossil fuels can power our civilization over two hundred

years ago, we have extracted and burned the petrol-ified and coal-ified remains of once-living organisms. This has, in turn, released copious amounts of CO into our atmosphere, which is contributing to rapid warming, the likes of which human civilization has never encountered. In fact, the Earth hasn’t seen these levels of carbon release since the time the dinosaurs roamed the earth. All of this comes at a time when climate change is a passionate topic in contemporary America. While over 70 percent of American adults now acknowledge that global warming is occurring, fewer than 44 percent believe that global warming will impact or harm them personally. Over the years, as someone who has seen countless cars in the ditch following the Chinook winds blowing through town, I can assure you that climate change has definitely influenced people in my community.

UNM helps students navigate int’l studies By Gerardo Archundia S. @GerasMJ Editor’s Note: This article is part of a multimedia package, which includes a video produced by Gerardo Archundia S. accessible on our website and on Presentations, desserts and study abroad orientations were some of the events that took place during International Education Week last week at the University of New Mexico. Organized by the Global

Education Office, the week aimed to teach students about other cultures and encourage them to study abroad and improve their professional skills. “We want to celebrate our international students that are here, and we want to help American students to go abroad and diversify their culture and language skills,” said Annette Mares-Duran, a Global Education Office advisor. During the week, a fair gave students the chance to learn about the different exchange programs and scholarships UNM offers. Students shared their aspirations

for the future, while different departments helped them find a program that fit their goals. “I’m thinking (of ) taking one semester in Italy. It seems there are some good programs,” said Eric White, an undergraduate student at UNM. International students showcased posters with information on their countries during the week. A dessert competition also allowed students to share and win prizes for their dish. “We really want people to share their culture (with) our students, so they can feel they have the chance to study abroad,”

Mares-Duran said. The week also included a free film screening in Centennial and Zimmerman Libraries, an international menu at La Posada and virtual reality tours. “It is fun and interesting knowing about all these cultures in the world, that way I can know more people and know about their cultures,” said Andrea Valenzuela, who is receiving her master’s degree at UNM. At the end of the week, international, exchange and UNM students participated in a dance party at Bandido’s Hideout on

Central Ave. and shared their study abroad experiences while hearing music from all over the world and learning to dance to it. International Education Week allowed students to learn about international education programs, departments and opportunities to travel and experience another culture while studying and gaining skills for their future professions.
