Startup simplifies college



BY BRITTNY MEJIA The Daily Wildcat

Not only did the movie “The Social Network” gross around $96 million, it also inspired a couple of UA students to push forward with their dream of creating a startup, which will launch its pilot program this summer. Andrew Chaifetz and Matthew Silverstone, currently both marketing seniors, co-founded NoteBowl in 2011. Frustrated with the lack of student engagement and networking, the two went to work creating the startup to help students connect with classmates and professors. The purpose of NoteBowl is to aggregate all courses, information, applications and resources on campus into one social platform. The NoteBowl team, consisting of 14 students,

The startup will allow students to collaborate with classmates and integrate class syllabi into one calendar, which then syncs to mobile phones. Students can receive instant notifications about tests and quizzes and ask professors questions, among other functions. Since the platform will also integrate Google Apps, students can sync Google Drive to their phone where they can edit and update to NoteBowl. Chaifetz said the ultimate goal is to simplify the organizational process for college students. “Every student that I talked to said, ‘Man, I wish everything was


UA club works to quench thirst BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat

In places where water is scarce, such as Swaziland and Uganda, finding enough to survive can be a challenge — a UA club is trying to make it a little easier. In these countries, women and children walk miles to collect unsanitary water. A jerrycan , normally used to store gasoline, is often used to carry the water. When full, a standard jerrycan weighs more than 44 pounds. Carrying these cans for miles can cause spinal and pelvic malformations. Once the water is collected, there is usually no way to sanitize it, leaving the drinker vulnerable to parasites and disease. “We live in a world where nearly 1 billion people don’t have access to safe drinking water,” said Evan Wesley, a speaker for Thirst Project. “That’s like one-in-eight

people walking on this planet.” The Thirst Project was formed in Los Angeles in 2008 by a group of eight college students. They began with simple grassroots campaigns to raise money to build freshwater wells in developing countries. They also formed local water boards to help maintain and regulate those wells. Wesley’s talk was organized by the UA Thirst Project Club, founded in the spring of 2012 by Ashkan Rastegar, a physiology junior and club president. The club currently has 30-35 members and five officers. Rastegar said the club is helping make a change. “We make a lot of difference with social media,” he said. Rastegar said it is important to have an extension of the Thirst Project on the UA campus to get students involved. “Unless there is someone dedicated to bringing this to a college campus, nothing is going to happen,” he said. “You have to have a club and have an incentive for people to join and to make a difference.” UA Thirst Project Club officer and nursing junior Tori Kinion said she became involved with the organization after seeing a presentation in high school four years ago. “It really hit me hard,” Kinion said. “We just take for granted the water that we have.” The Thirst Project began outreach and fundraising programs in Los Angeles and now works nationally as a nonprofit. In addition to raising funding to build wells, it also runs outreach programs to get youth involved. “We thought, ‘How can we be different than all the other water organizations?’” Wesley said. “‘Let’s use young people.’” Wesley has been working for Thirst Project for a year. He began working in the organization after graduating with a degree in environmental science. He speaks at multiple events a year, mostly at schools.

The club’s outreach isn’t just limited to campus — the UA Thirst Project also attends art festivals around Tucson. “We kind of try to raise awareness to the greater Tucson community and let them know that there is something like this going on,” Rastegar said.

Apropos of Nothing

No tanks, bro: Keep UA a DMZ BY Logan Rogers The Daily Wildcat

Winter is more than halfway over, which means the end of Southern Arizona’s three months of sweater weather is getting closer by the day. Along with the arrival of spring, I’ve heard that bro tanks will soon be back and more popular than ever at the UA. I think this trend should be a major cause for concern, consternation and outrage. I know that Arizona has a reputation of being enthusiastic about the Second Amendment, but I think letting ordinary bros have tanks on campus goes a little too far. Personally, I think only trained military personnel should have tanks. Bro tanks could be a campus safety issue. The Arizona Board of Regents policy manual bans the “use, possession, display, or storage of any weapon” on public university campuses. Many people would see a tank as a threatening “weapon.” Even if the tank’s cannon is technically deactivated, you still might be more hesitant to make an angry gesture at someone in a tank than at someone in a Volkswagen bug. It seems inconsistent and hypocritical. Besides safety, there are tons of other reasons why bros taking tanks to campus is a bad idea. Isn’t traffic on Interstate 10 bad enough with all the semi trucks? I’m not an expert on heavily-armored military vehicles, but I doubt most tanks can cruise along at 75 mph. The M1 Abrams tank used by the U.S. military, for example, has a maximum road speed of 42 miles per hour. That’s not going to cut it on the freeway, bro. These tanks will slow everything down, and their only economic benefit will be improving the job security of traffic reporters. And bros in tanks will make the already bad campus parking situation even worse. I seriously doubt most tanks can fit between those yellow lines in our parking garages. And if any of them tries to fit in one of those “compact car” spaces, I really hope UA Parking and Transportation Services throws a whole book of tickets at them. What about the environmental effect of bro tanks? I thought we were trying to be a green campus. Tanks may be famous for helping the Soviets defeat the Germans in World War II, but they are not so famous for having great gas mileage. Last time I checked, Toyota didn’t make a hybrid tank. The folks there need to get on that, but until they do, let’s make sure tank exhaust doesn’t stink up University Boulevard. Even if we did allow tanks on campus, it definitely wouldn’t be fair to limit them to bros. There’s no place for gender discrimination in 2014. Besides, I’m pretty sure Title IX would require us to have just as many babe tanks as bro tanks. In conclusion, if you ask me whether we should allow bro tanks on campus, I will have to say, “Thanks, but no tanks!” Breaking news: I have just been informed that bro tanks are actually tank top shirts, not armored military vehicles. It was an honest mistake, just like that time I denounced a sub shop that was moving into the neighborhood because I thought it was crazy to sell submarines in the middle of the desert. How was I supposed to know they were only sandwiches? Anyway, I guess bro tanks probably don’t need to be banned, though I do have some arguments against them. However, that would be a whole other column I’m too lazy to write, even if that means this one totally tanks. Disclaimer: As a general rule, nothing in Logan Rogers’ columns should be taken seriously.

NSA website can’t encrypt its covert mission to convert kids BY Eleanor Ferguson

The Daily Wildcat

Lots of children play games and use toys related to adult careers: cops and robbers, spaceman, Operation, among many others. Playing in this manner teaches children about different jobs and inspires them to want to become doctors, cops or actors. But it’s a bit trickier to imagine what we’d give children to motivate them to become National Security Agency agents. According to the NSA’s CryptoKids website, the answer is information about creating and breaking codes, math and logic games and a healthy dose of propaganda. After all, how else will the NSA convince the next generation that it’s harmless? Nine cartoon characters, all with backgrounds in language or intelligence, inhabit the website. The troupe is designed to appeal to the youngest of visitors, especially to their fervent sense of patriotism. One of the characters is an American eagle named Sergeant Sam, who joined the military right out of high school. Each cartoon’s biography advocates the “kewl” aspect of breaking codes and of being a step ahead of “the enemy.” The site also emphasizes how vital it is to know what “the bad guys” are up to, without clearly defining just who they are. The website’s whole approach reads like propaganda trying

Social norms are transitory at best. I recall, as a senior in high school, going to the local community college to take my SATs. I entered the class room and to my amazement there were ashtrays on the desks. WOW!! I smoked a whole pack while taking my SATs. Many offices, including doctors’ offices, had little wooden or metal ornate cases on their desks filled with cigarettes. It was as casual to offer someone a cigarette as a glass of water. Times have changed. E-cigs ARE changing social norms. They are not bringing back cigarettes or smoking into social and business situations. They are NEW and they are different and they are going to require time for NEW “norms” to develop. An interesting point in the OP. Everyone farts. Everyone. But is anyone calling for a ban on assholes? (Might be a good idea.) No, we communicate with one

another and work out what we as individual groups, in individual situations, find appropriate. (Tell cowboys sitting around a campfire eating beans if they need to go somewhere else to fart.)

For the love of Fitzgerald

A UA student called the University of Arizona Police Department to report an altercation with her former roommate on Jan. 24. She said that her roommate hadn’t returned her No. 11 Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals jersey she had let the roommate borrow for a work event. At the time of the exchange, both women were roommates and friends, but since then had no longer been roommates due to conflicting personalities. The student said that she spoke to her former roommate about getting the jersey back, but the ex-roommate claimed she no longer had it. The UAPD officer contacted the ex-roommate to arrange a time to return the student’s jersey. However, when they met, she said that she no longer had the jersey because she let another friend borrow it and could not reach her to get it back. The ex-roommate said that she would try to get it back within the next few days. After a couple days had passed, the student texted her ex-roommate about the jersey, but she said again that she didn’t have it and would get it back. Over the next few days, the ex-roommate began receiving threatening text messages about returning the jersey. It was finally returned during a final exchange between both women and a UAPD officer.

No Mary here ... oh, wait

A UA student received a referral for possession of a glass pipe with marijuana residue on Jan. 27 at ArizonaSonora Residence Hall. UAPD responded to a call from a resident assistant reporting the strong smell of marijuana on the third floor. When the UAPD officer went to the third floor, he could smell a strong perfume aroma as well as the faint smell of marijuana coming from one of the rooms. The officer knocked on the door to confirm where the smell was coming from. The resident answered and had no problem letting the officer come into the room to speak with her. As the officer entered, he saw that the other roommate was present as well. The officer told both students that he could smell marijuana coming from the room. The two said that they didn’t have any marijuana and had not been smoking. He proceeded to ask them if he could search their room and they agreed. After searching, the officer found a red tin box with a glass pipe that contained marijuana residue. He asked whose it was and one of the girls replied that it was hers. The student was referred to the Dean of Students Office.




Random nudes

Last Tuesday, UAPD responded to a UA student’s request to document multiple unwelcome text messages she had received. The student said she believed her phone number had been put on a “sex chat” website after she received multiple text messages asking her to send pictures of herself. She did not send any pictures, but received three nude pictures of random men and many sexual text messages. Although the messages were not threatening in any way, the student wanted them to be documented just in case. The student said she believes that her two exroommates are responsible for putting her phone number on a sex website. The student changed her phone number and stopped receiving the messages.

DeMont named head coach A fixture of UA swimming and diving since the 1970s, former Arizona swimmer and assistant Rick DeMont tabbed to lead the Wildcats BY MARK ARMAO

The Daily Wildcat

Former Wildcat swimmer and longtime assistant coach Rick DeMont was named head swimming and diving coach on Tuesday. He served as interim head coach for much of this season following the leave of absence and subsequent resignation of former head coach Eric Hansen. DeMont said he is honored to take the helm of a “prestigious program” like Arizona swimming. “This is a great place to run a program, and I’m excited about the possibilities,” DeMont said. DeMont swam for the UA in the late 1970s and has served on the Arizona coaching staff for 25 seasons. “We’re extremely pleased to have someone with Rick DeMont’s credentials involved in our swimming and diving program,” said athletic director Greg Byrne in a press release. “Rick has been a dedicated Wildcat for over a quarter of a century, and he’s earned the opportunity to lead our program,” he continued. “His resume speaks for itself, and we know he’ll continue to build on the rich tradition of Arizona swimming.” Despite the change in title, members of the team still know DeMont by his nickname, “Rocket.” And judging by his accolades as a swimmer, it’s an appropriate moniker. DeMont is a former worldrecord holder in the 1500-meter freestyle, the 400m freestyle and the 4x100m freestyle relay. He was also the first man to swim the 400m freestyle in under four minutes. These, along with

numerous other achievements, earned him a place in the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 1990. Reflecting on his history with UA swimming, DeMont said he couldn’t see himself anywhere else. “I’m familiar with this program going all the way back to the ’60s,” DeMont said. “I graduated from [the UA]. I don’t know how to be anything but a Wildcat.” DeMont served as head coach in an interim capacity since October, when then-head

coach Eric Hansen took a leave of absence for undisclosed “personal matters.” In January, Hansen resigned. Despite the distractions caused by Hansen’s departure, assistant coach Brandy Collins Maben said that the team made the transition smoothly under DeMont’s leadership. “We have been kind of sailing since October, so when [Hansen] resigned, it really wasn’t anything different from our day-to-day on deck,” she said. Collins Maben, who swam for


DeMont during her collegiate career, said that she feels blessed to be able to work alongside her friend and mentor. “[DeMont’s] energy is unbelievable, and his knowledge and wisdom is the best in the world,” she said. “We couldn’t be happier or luckier to have him step up.”

adjust to sand play BY TYLER KECKEISEN The Daily Wildcat

Volleyball is a sport where agility is important, so the transition from indoor to sand is difficult for players, especially when the surface feels like quicksand compared to a wooden court. Sand volleyball is Arizona’s newest sport, but most of its players are on the indoor team as well. To help with the transition, UA head coach Steve Walker said they are taking baby steps by reteaching the fundamentals. “Obviously, we want to practice and focus on mental and practice habits,” Walker said. “I am pleased with the group of players’ effort and the way they have competed so far.” Walker’s roster consists of 13 student athletes, nine coming from the indoor team and four sand-only players. Since this is Arizona’s first season in the new sport, which was inaugurated in 2011, the players need to get acclimated to new practice techniques. “So far, we have been concentrating on the first two contacts,” Walker said. “With us having a number of players transitioning from the indoor game, we need to start getting really comfortable with the serve-receive aspects of the game, and the setting part of the game.” Perfecting the serve-receive and setting aspects will be vital, since wind conditions will affect ball trajectory. “Going from indoor to outdoor, I need to work on getting comfortable with timing and atmosphere,” said junior Jane Croson, who accumulated nearly 300 digs indoors in 2013. “It’s hard getting adjusted to wind conditions when you play outside, but it just takes [time to get] adjusted to the little things.” But in time, Walker said he thinks his players will become more comfortable with the newer mental reps. “It’s going to be a challenge, since those two things of mental reps have been drilled into their heads for most of their career indoors,” Walker said. “Now, they have to transition to sand and basically relearn newer techniques.” Walker was associate head coach

Should hoops go big or small? BY EVAN ROSENFELD


The Daily Wildcat


STEVE WALKER, head coach for the UA sand volleyball team, demonstrates techniques the team can use during the upcoming season at the Jimenez Practice Facility on Monday. The season will begin in March.

of the UA indoor team, head coach of UC Davis’ indoor squad, played indoor in college and played beach volleyball professionally. “When they are outside, the technique and timing is completely different,” Walker said. “So, just getting them comfortable in [serve-receive and setting aspects] of the game is a good first step.” Running in the sand and maintaining responsibilities to the indoor team makes players sore, but junior Madi Kingdon, who is an outside hitter on the indoor team, said she is not too worried about that. In preparation for the team’s first match on March 7 against Arizona Christian at home, it will be practicing daily Monday through Friday with all 13 players. However, there will only be sand-only players on Wednesday, as that day will consist mainly of drills.

osing Brandon Ashley for the year could end up dooming Arizona’s season, but dwelling on that is asking for trouble. It’s time to move on. What’s next involves replacing Ashley’s production and figuring out the rotation, now that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is expected to be the new starter. I say stick with what has made this Arizona team so deadly and continue to use bigger lineups. The team is in the middle of a record-breaking year, and there’s no reason to change what has gotten the Wildcats to this point. Arizona is so good because of an outstanding defense and the ability to control the rebounding margins. The Wildcats are fifth in the nation in scoring defense with 56.8 points per game, sixth in rebounding margin at 9.5 and 27th in rebounds per game with 39. It’s safe to say Arizona’s calling card all season has been rebounding and defense. Keeping up the defensive intensity and rebounding numbers should be prioritized. This is the spot that could’ve been perfect for Grant Jerrett, who left early for the NBA Draft. However, head coach Sean Miller doesn’t have the luxury of having him waiting in the wings. That means more playing time for Tucson product Matt Korcheck. Despite having played only 45 minutes all season , Korcheck brings the kind of bulk that is now needed downlow. He would essentially take over the now-vacant bench role that Hollis-Jefferson occupied. Korcheck is obviously not the same type of player as HollisJefferson, but he seems to have Miller’s support. At least, more support than Miller has for Zach Peters. Playing small ball would mean better offensive numbers but an overall worse defensive system. Don’t get me wrong; offense is great. It’s just not what makes this season’s Arizona team so special. As the old saying goes, “Defense wins championships.”

ith its most productive big man out for the season, the question now is whether Arizona would be better off depending on a quicker, smaller lineup comprised of three guards and two big men. No. 2 Arizona should go with a three-guard approach featuring established leaders in junior guards T.J. McConnell and Nick Johnson and rising sophomore guard Gabe York in the backcourt, accompanied by freshman forward Aaron Gordon and sophomore center Kaleb Tarczewski rounding out the frontcourt. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson could easily act as a second frontcourt man coming off the bench and sub in for the 7-foot Tarczewski when the team needs to strike with quick, efficient offensive drives. This rotation gives the Wildcats added depth and intensity on the offensive glass, which will lead to more possibilities of second-chance points In Arizona’s two most recent wins against Stanford and Utah , the Wildcats depended on their ability to effectively clear the offensive glass to win the contests. In the UA’s loss to Cal , offensive rebounding kept Arizona competitive, and nearly won them the game despite a night of season-low shooting . The Wildcats could have easily lost a couple close matches this year if it weren’t for the offensive rebounds Hollis-Jefferson pulled down. Over Arizona’s past three games, he has compiled 10 offensive rebounds and currently ranks second on the team with 55 this year — 12 more than Tarczewski has . With the versatile Hollis-Jefferson coming off the bench, the three-guard rotation adds a deadly 1-2 offensive punch.

PERFORMERS IN THE CEDAR LAKE Contemporary Ballet dance company display a piece called “Violet Kid,” one of three performances they will bring to Centennial Hall on Thursday evening.


The Daily Wildcat

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, which incorporates classical dance practice with innovative choreography, will make its Tucson debut at Centennial Hall Thursday evening. “In every Cedar Lake performance, we strive to showcase the diversity of our company at its very best,” interim artistic director Alexandra Damiani said. “These three dances do just that. They are each by choreographers with very distinctive styles.” First on the program is a piece by choreographer Hofesh Shechter, titled “Violet Kid”. Shechter, an Israeli native, concentrates on harmony in a broken world in this piece. All of the dancers are on stage and engaged for a full 33 minutes, showcasing their endurance. The choreographer created not only the dance, but the original score as well. The next piece is “Tuplet” by Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman. The dancers use their bodies as percussion instruments in this playful piece that

Aftermath: Who won the game console war? BY TORSTEN WARD The Daily Wildcat

Video game console launches are never pretty. Just like in politics, promises are broken, expectations are crushed and someone always makes a stupid mistake that costs them a few fans. But in the end, it’s just two (or three) huge companies competing for your dollar by advertising systems that perform extremely similar tasks. 2013 saw the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and these next-gen consoles are no exception. However, fanboys everywhere fought tooth and nail with their gaming rivals to prove that their console truly was and is the best. Here we’ll break down Sony and Microsoft’s newest consoles and see who came out ahead.

The Hardware

Long before their November release dates, the details concerning system hardware for the PS4 and Xbox One were released to the cheers of gamers everywhere. Never before has the technology within two different consoles been so similar in power, but this isn’t a bad thing: You can practically hear each console revving with raw processing power (not really; both systems are extremely quiet in person). Without getting into major technicalities, I can tell you that the Xbox One and PS4 both contain 8-core AMD CPUs, AMD graphic cards, 8GB RAM, and 500GB internal hard drives. Just like the PS3, the PS4 has an upgradeable hard drive, while the Xbox One plans to support external storage in the future. Both have their

pros and cons. However, the PS4 contains a bit more processing power with the inclusion of its GDDR5 RAM and Radeon GPU. This is all gibberish to the average gamer, but those who understand hardware specs know that when both of these systems get pushed to the limit in coming years, the PS4 will boast prettier graphics and smoother gameplay than its competitor. As far as how they look and feel, Sony takes the cake. No contest. Not only is the PS4 more powerful overall than the Xbox One, it packs it all into a package nearly half the size of Microsoft’s brick oven of a console.

The Controllers

If you grew up with an Xbox, you likely favored the 360’s bulkier but more ergonomic controller over the classic PlayStation design that has remained mostly unchanged since the original PlayStation’s dual analog controller came out in 1997. Both controllers stick to their roots while still raising the bar. The Xbox One controller and the DualShock 4 have the same layout as their predecessors, but drastically improve on all other fronts. Buttons and analog movements are more responsive than ever and both controllers just feel good in your hands. However, the Xbox One’s immersion factor skyrockets with the inclusion of trigger button rumbling. Imagine playing Forza Motorsport 5 and driving one side of your car off the paved raceway and feeling the jagged rocks under your tires through your fingertips. Yeah, it’s cool. But every good pro comes with a con: batteries. The DualShock 4 is just an all-around great controller, and the addition of the light bar,

touch pad and on-deck speaker will only further the controller’s future capabilities. The share button allows gamers to post or stream their gameplay and achievements on game-oriented media sharing sites like Twitch and on more conventional social media platforms in seconds. While the Xbox One supports similar streaming capabilities, they aren’t as easily accessible or indepth. Any qualms with each controller are vastly outdone by their positive characteristics, and for this reason, the two controllers experience a Rocky IV-style punch-out: It’s a tie. Besides AMD, the real winners of the console war are us gamers. After Microsoft shot themselves in the foot with the initial promise of limiting DRM policies, used game restrictions and an always-online requirement, they’ve backtracked enough to avoid drowning in a

pool of hate mail and debt. But one of the many reasons the PS4 has already sold over 4.2 million units compared to Xbox One’s 3 million is because of the price. Even though both consoles have great games lined up for release in the near future, you can’t beat Sony’s $400 price point when compared to Microsoft’s $500 console of similar quality. I’m not big on grades, so I’ll be blunt: The winner is Sony’s PS4. However, though Sony’s won this battle, the war won’t be over for about another decade.
