Regents call for tuition reform




The Daily Wildcat TEMPE, Ariz. — The Arizona Board of Regents called on the presidents of the state universities, including the UA, to adopt multi-year tuition plans at its meeting Thursday. The meeting at ASU brought forward proposed reforms to tuition and fees at the UA, ASU and NAU under the direction of the board of regents. The proposed reforms would not take effect until next year, said Eileen Klein, president of the board of regents. A multi-year tuition plan would require the UA to map out tuition rates for a window of time

so students and their families would know what they can expect to pay for a few years out. Other states, such as Mississippi, Illinois and New York, have similar tuition models, according to Klein. “The point is really to give that window of predictability over a timed horizon and have that baked into each university’s business plan,” Klein said. The proposal also calls on the state government to offer more predictable revenue for the universities. Under this proposal, the regents would still retain the ability to adjust those tuition rates given the possibility of circumstances changing with regards to the funding coming in

from the state. Gov. Jan Brewer called for the board of regents to adopt a predictable and stable tuition model for in-state students in her State of the State address last month. Following the address, Brewer released her proposed budget for the 2015 fiscal year, which offered the UA about 10 percent of its funding request. “We can’t achieve stable tuition, predictable tuition, affordable tuition without the support of the state,” Klein said.

A new minor being offered at the UA is taking students back in time. The thematic minor in Medieval Studies allows students to study the Middle Ages from a broad perspective, according to Fabian Alfie, head of the Department of French and Italian. The minor is housed by the Colleges of Letters, Arts and Science. The Medieval Studies minor was approved in late December as an interdisciplinary minor. The Interdisciplinary Studies Program allows students to study and earn degree credit in multiple subjects, from literature to history, religion, philosophy, music and political science. Albrecht Classen, professor of German studies and chair of the University of Arizona Medieval, Renaissance and Reformation Committee, said he was inspired by the minor in Hip-Hop Studies when he decided to create the new Medieval Studies minor in collaboration with Alfie. Alfie said he and Classen wanted to introduce a minor that would pull together coursework from different areas. The minor requires students to take at least 18 units, with nine of those units being upper division courses. “[The minor is] trying to give students a sense of a certain cultural period,” Classen said. Courses for this minor range from Periods in Chinese History: New Empire: 750-1350 AD, to courses such as Italian Literature in Translation: The Middle Ages and “The Divine Comedy” by Dante, just to name a few. “[This] allows [students] to combine — in a unique way — philosophy, religion, art history, literature and economics,” Classen said. “There is a lot of flexibility, yet with a concrete focus on a

DACHSHUNDS and their owners gathered in McKale Center last night to compete in the finals of the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals preliminary races.

Dachshunds and their owners came to the UA from all over Tucson on Sunday to participate in the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals preliminary races. To enter a dog in the races, contestants signed up online at no cost and then showed up at the Frank Sancet Stadium, said Stacy Acke whose dogs Noodle and Lulu were racing for the first time. However, Acke’s dogs didn’t take home any titles. “They kind of just went out of the box and stood there,” Acke said. Acke said the dogs didn’t seem phased by their loss. “They were more excited to see all the other wiener dogs,” she said. Around 50 to 60 dachshunds were at the event, but not all were newcomers, according to Trevor Trout, host of the races. Nancy LaVigne is a seasoned wiener dog racer, and her dachshund Poppy won the Arizona competition in 2010. This year she entered another dog,

Lana, who made it to the final race that was held during halftime in McKale Center at the Arizona versus Oregon State basketball game. Besides racing, Lavigne is involved with all things wiener dog-related. “There’s a big community of weiner dogs here, and we’re part of it,” Lavigne said. “We have a meetup group called the Tucson Desert Dachshund Meetup, and we meet at Reid Park. We do a lot of things for the community, like Pets of the Homeless, and we gather food and take it down to Casa Maria Soup Kitchen.” Lavigne said that the races are more for entertainment. “[Dachshunds] were actually bred to hunt badgers instead of race, so it’s just really fun,” Lavigne said. This year the winner was Zenaida Olyvar and her dog Princess Larrisa Marie. The pair was awarded $250 and a spot in the national championship held in San Diego. Like Lavigne, Olyvar also had past experience with wiener dog racing. “We had a champion wiener before,” Olyvar said. “His name was Ziggy Boy,

What do you think beauty is? I think beauty is more within. It is who someone is as a person — their actions and how they treat people. I do not think it is just about appearance. Everyone, in their own way, is beautiful. How do you think social media shapes what peoples’ view of beauty is? I think they set an expectation of what beauty is supposed to be, which isn’t right because it leads to so many difficulties that women in general have to deal with.

State rep. talks budget fight, guns Q&A

only to Tucson, but to the whole state of Arizona? People don’t know what land grant means anymore. When I think of land grant, I think of an Arizona-wide resource. We are a resource to every farmer, every rancher and everyone in rural Arizona. If you look at our arid lands research and our AgEcon research, it’s being recognized in the Middle East. President [Ann Weaver] Hart went to Dubai and alumni associations there want to know what we’re doing when it comes to agriculture and water. We really are a resource to all of Arizona.


With the legislative session well under way, State Rep. Ethan Orr (R-Tucson) is preparing for a year of budget battles and elections. The Daily Wildcat caught up with the UA adjunct professor at the State Capitol to discuss higher education, guns on campus and the importance of the UA.

Is it hard to balance family and work? It sucks. The night before, my son started crying on the phone because he’s sad that I’m not there. It’s really a sacrifice and my wife understands. She views it as a ministry, because we get to help people. My kids don’t get it. What I do is when I’m home, I try to do as much with my family as possible. I have a condo here that I split with another member. I’d just rather be home. I have three kids — a 9-year-old, a 7-year-old and a 4-yearold — and I just love being home.

DW: What are the higher education issues being argued in the state Legislature this year? Orr: The biggest thing to me is that the [Arizona] Board of Regents came to an agreement among the three university presidents which was a very good package. It included for the UA an extra $15 million in main campus infrastructure and faculty improvements. It included $4 million for a vet school and $4 million for cooperative extension. The governor only put in the $3.5 million for cooperative extension. So, what I’ve said is that I am not going home until I put the $19 million back into the budget. What do you think are the chances of that happening? I think I’m going to get something. I’m going to be tenacious and I’m going to make it very clear it is wholly inappropriate to fund NAU and ASU for a majority of their ABOR package and not fund UA. You can’t make an agreement among the three universities and arbitrarily take one out. If it’s going to be an agreement and


STATE REP. ETHAN ORR RTUCSON said he will not return home until the state allots more money to the UA.

you have to shrink the size of the agreement, shrink them all together. The UA got 10 percent of its ask. ASU and NAU got 60 percent. Why would you single out one university? A bill in the House proposes allowing faculty members of a state university to carry concealed weapons on campus; what are your thoughts? I think safety is extremely important. When I was in student government [at the UA], we built all those blue-light phones because we had a lot of problems with campus rape. Women feel much safer to have those campus phones.

I think they’re pretty good. I hope that they will follow suit because I am going to have a relentlessly positive campaign. I don’t like the negative campaigning and, unfortunately, they have started down that road. I really dislike where politics has gone. I dislike the partisan nature. I dislike how people introduce issues, not to solve a problem, but just to create a “gotcha” moment. — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney

Why do you think the UA is important, not



regents, said action needs to be taken in the Legislature to address concerns over UA funding. “Part of the challenge we face is getting someone to move first, be the first one to jump out there and say, ‘Yeah, we need to have this money back for U of A,’” Killian said. “I don’t think anyone wants to take ownership of that at this point.” UA President Ann Weaver Hart said the university is also working to use philanthropy to help support its financial needs, citing a $10 million gift that was recently presented to the UA. The board of regents is recommending reforms to the fee setting process as well. Klein said multiple similar fees being charged to students could be streamlined to avoid confusion. The board also recommends putting a review process on fees so they could be removed or modified. Rick Myers, chairman of the board of regents, said that the real conversation shouldn’t be about what the price of tuition is,but about what students are really paying for their education. “We do ourselves just such a disservice because we only talk list price, and very few people in the scope of the whole universities are actually paying that list price,” Myers said. Klein said she hopes the changes being recommended bring some clarity and transparency to the cost of tuition, and that the fee reforms can lead to student bills that are more clear and understandable. “While it’s very tidy from an accounting point of view, I’m not sure it’s particularly friendly to a person who is trying to read it and understand,” Klein said. In addition to tuition and fee reforms, the board of regents also discussed how Arizona schools were preparing K-12 students for college. Killian said that the students coming into the state’s universities are not prepared enough for the level of education the universities demand. “K-12 is not producing the product that we need,” Killian said. The board voted to approve a statement that said it supports test standards for K-12 education to more accurately measure student progress and ensure that they can succeed in college and in their future careers. “We are losing children, and for whatever reason, they have got to find solutions,” Killian said. “We stand ready to help in any way we can, but we need a better product.” Hart said these are issues that will affect future generations of UA students. “I think that it’s critically important that the legislators and everyone know that we’re working on all fronts to address these issues and the issues that have been raised by our students,” Hart said.

cultural period.” Outside of coursework, there are opportunities for students to study abroad and explore the art of the Middle Ages. This opportunity is not only available overseas, but also here in Arizona, according to Classen. “I went on a medieval studies summer trip this past summer with Dr. Classen and it was one of the best trips of my life,” said Laura Unklesbay, a senior studying German studies and political science. “I learned so much about medieval life, literature and architecture. Learning about the medieval studies minor makes me wish that I had more time in college to get the minor for myself. I think it is a wonderful opportunity.” Classen and Alfie said they hope to see this new program grow into something bigger, maybe even a major, and the interest from students is giving them hope. “If I could say anything about professor Classen’s class, I’d say that it is … extremely stimulating to discuss the literature that was written many years ago,” said Christopher Proefrock, a biochemistry major. “There is a clear resemblance of issues that we face in


It’s an election year; what do you think your chances are for getting re-elected?

Safety is extremely important to me. I think if you want people to be safe on campus, better policing is more important. For example, the text alert and the alert system that the UA has set up are extremely effective. I fully support people’s Second Amendment rights, but you have to put it in context. People deserve to be safe, but is that the way to make them safe? If we’re going to have a mass shooting event, text alerts, the alert system and better policing, these are the things that practically make people safer.

Do men deserve a say in women’s rights issues? Fox News deferring to white men for expert commentary is dangerous and erases actual expertise about important race and gender issues

Men have a stake in contraception and reproductive rights issues, so their voices deserve to be heard in the women’s rights debate

He said...

She said...

BY Eric Klump The Daily Wildcat


irth control pills are only for women to be promiscuous, and serve no medical purpose. Abortion is wrong in any case and if the mother is going to die, then she will have to die. Gays shouldn’t marry and Trayvon Martin was a thug in a hoodie. Also, Sandra Fluke is a slut. These are harsh statements that some of you may agree with. In truth, I don’t. Rather, they are paraphrased statements that caught my attention on the news. My hands hurt typing them. I am not an expert on women’s reproductive health. I am not a professor of Africana studies. I am not black, gay or a woman. I am just a white man. Why are white men like me considered experts in fields that we have no knowledge of? Why are we paraded out on the news to comment on issues that will not affect us? Why have four white men discuss “the war on women” or whether “‘thug’ is the accepted way of calling someone the n-word?” When Fox News had its “All-Star Panel” of men discussing the “War on Women,” it implied that those men were experts capable of carrying the conversation by themselves. Yet none of those men have a degree in gender and women’s studies or work in public health. They aren’t even sex columnists! Charles Krauthammer, Bret Baier and Charles Lane have had long careers and are experts in broadcasting, political science, economics, psychiatry and journalism, but lack the academic expertise or lived experience required for this conversation. They acknowledge that they don’t have a comprehensive understanding of women’s personal experiences. However, they can look up statistics, so they keep talking about the “War on Women.” Sandra Fluke, a graduate of Georgetown Law, may not have a degree in a field related to reproductive health, but she went before Congress to give her valid and valuable perspective on the importance of birth control pills for women. She argued as an expert because she has firsthand experience and knowledge that gave her authority. More importantly, she is affected by the issue. She uses birth control and the policy related to it actually makes a difference in her life. The 4th Estate created an infographic to show whether men or women were quoted more often in news pieces related to women around the 2012 election. They found that 79 out of 100 interviewed subjects in print were men. On television, the number rose to 81. In addition to the news being dominated by men, the Guardian reports that the media increasingly more trusted. “In the UK and US, trust in the media has actually increased,” wrote Polly Curtis, the Guardian’s deputy national editor. “People are more likely to believe what [they] read in the papers, online and what they are told on TV bulletins.” An audience’s trust still doesn’t make a person an expert, but it does make them dangerous. This trust allows those white men

to be put in front of us as experts, and that’s wrong. To that point, having four unqualified white people debate a word’s significance to black people is ridiculous. People with degrees in Africana studies or linguistics or people with first-hand experience of racism have a lot more authority and stake in a conversation about “thug.” People without the knowledge or experience of a subject who try to talk to an audience about it is like vegans recommending steakhouses. At best, the advice is misinformed, and at worst, it is just ignorance breeding more ignorance. As a whole, there needs to be a restructuring of dialogues where we replace Charles Krauthammer with Megyn Kelly and Charles Lane with Melissa Harris-Perry or ask Juan Williams to discuss the racial significance of the word “thug.” We need to think about who should be trusted — academic experts and people who have actual life experience with these issues — and not just accept that white men know everything. — Eric Klump is a journalism senior.

here are many battles in the “War on Women,” from the difference in pay to blatant workplace discrimination. Though each of these is important, the battle over contraception and why a man needs to keep his opinions away from women’s bodies seems to be a hot topic lately. On a topic that directly deals with reproduction, why is it that men are made to feel uncomfortable about speaking up? Why don’t men have a say in the matter when they should? Fox News recently had a panel of four men that ended up discussing the topic of contraception and the “War on Women.” The men seemed uncomfortable with the lack of women present as they discussed these issues surrounding what women supposedly want regarding birth control freedom. Should the government provide

Letter to the Editor I was highly amused by the half-page advertisement from the UofA Bookstores in the Feb. 5 issue. Disguised as a news article, the advertisement is clearly aimed at discouraging students from stealing from the UofA Bookstores and highlighting some of the possible consequences of shoplifting. I don’t think respectable news outlets like the Daily Wildcat should allow this kind of content in their papers — it looks deceptive to readers and lowers the overall credibility of the publication.

A better idea would be listening to the hundreds of students and various ASUA officials who have called for allowing students to charge items to their university bursar’s accounts yearround, instead of only during certain time frames. This would encourage students to purchase more items from the Bookstores, rather than purchasing the same items for lower prices at other retailers. By making purchasing as easy as sliding a CatCard, students will be less likely to steal things. Another idea would be starting a Facebook page similar to Circle K’s

“Crime Busters” page, where mug shots of suspected and confirmed shoplifters are posted on Facebook for identification and publicity purposes. Students would no doubt be embarrassed to have their photographs posted in such a venue, which would lead to a drop in theft. As an added bonus, it would be highly entertaining to the campus community, and would raise awareness of the fact that the Bookstores are serious about theft. There’s a lot of good things the UofA Bookstores could be doing to reduce theft and lower prices. Paying for advertising disguised as news in the Daily Wildcat isn’t one of them.

birth control, and where does a man’s opinion fit in? While some argue that men should keep their laws, as well as their hands, away from women’s bodies, that’s simply impossible considering the circumstances. However you’d like to put it, men rely on contraceptives as well. It takes two to tango, and at least half of the two has to be a guy for there to be a contraceptive needed. Modern day feminism seems to push government-funded child care to assist women staying in the workplace. The idea was to open up child care to women so they could return to work as they pleased, but according to Softpedia news, a third of women opt to be stay-at-home moms over having a career. The study suggests that some mothers return to work not because they want to, but because “they simply have no other choice.” Though in the first nine months the majority of parental responsibility falls on women, men cannot escape the innate responsibility of being a father to the child. And men want to be parents. A Pew Research Study found that over 50 percent of men ages 21-34 say they want to have children. Being a part of the conception process should entitle them to some say in the contraceptive argument. A Medscape study cites that it takes 90 percent of couples on birth control over a year to conceive after stopping the use of birth control. Some of the other 10 percent could also end up with fertility issues. That’s not including the fact that women are less fertile as they age and, even though having a child is still possible, there are risks of cerebral palsy and down syndrome attached to delayed maternity. Some women who reach the end of their childbearing years without having children didn’t have them because they were physically unable. This inability affects the men in their life who want to be fathers just as much as it affects them. With over 50 percent of the 21-34 male population wanting to have children, and the push for women to delay it, the voice of the father is being silenced. And this is at the cost of the stigma that the mother’s job of raising children is not worth its demands. Gavin McInnes, founder of, spoke about how he sees the role of a housewife as superior to his own job. “I essentially … make comic books. You flip through it and you’re done,” he said. “My wife creates life from her vagina and then — that’s just the beginning — then she shapes this human life.” So when a panel of four men come together to discuss the “War on Women,” like they did on Fox News, instead of attacking them for their opinions, we should recognize that this affects them just as much as it affects women. Instead of trivializing childbirth and the gift of fertility, we should embrace the separate but equal roles of both parents, birth or adoptive, as the caregivers and guardians of the children they’ve taken responsibility for. A man doesn’t need to have the final say about birth control, but his voice needs to be heard.

Police Beat BY Elizabeth Eaton The Daily Wildcat

Not a taxi

A UA student was cited for underage drinking on Feb. 2 at the corner of Park Avenue and Lowell Street at 2:45 a.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer noticed a student sitting on a curb, motioning for the officer to come over. As the officer drove toward the him, the student stood up and nearly fell over. He tried to enter the officer’s car through the rear passenger side door. The student admitted to being drunk and said that he wanted a taxi to drive him to The District on Fifth apartments. The officer informed him that he was not a taxi driver, but a police officer, and began to check the student for signs of intoxication. The student told the officer that he had been drinking beer given to him by a friend. After the officer confirmed that the student was drunk, he was cited and then taken home in a taxi.

The wrong place to pee

A student was arrested for underage drinking and criminal littering at around 10:40 p.m. on Feb. 2. A UAPD officer observed a student urinating in the parking lot of the police department who was having difficulty standing while doing so. As he approached the student, the officer noticed that he smelled strongly of alcohol and had red, watery eyes and trouble speaking. The student informed the officer that he had drunk several Heineken and Blue Moon beers while watching the Super Bowl, and claimed that some ASU friends had given him the beer. He refused to give their names. The officer then arrested the student for criminal littering and minor in possession.

Weed in a bush

A student was referred to the Dean of Students Office for marijuana use at around midnight on Feb. 2. While on patrol, a UAPD officer noticed two students hiding in the bushes near the Math building. The officer smelled weed as he got out of his cop car to confront the students. Both students ran away, but one was caught near Villa del Puente Residence Hall. The second student got away. The first student admitted to smoking weed, but claimed he did not know the other and had never seen him before. He said he was walking by the Math building when he saw someone smoking weed and was invited to smoke with him. A check of the student’s records revealed that he already had a warrant for possession of marijuana from the Tucson Police Department. The student was referred to the Dean of Students Office. The officer went back to the scene and found a black iPhone, which was used to identify the other student involved in the incident.

FRESHMAN INFIELDER Mo Mercado hits the ball during Arizona’s 14-2 win over Southern Mississippi on Saturday.

Arizona softball finished its three-game sweep of Southern Mississippi on Sunday afternoon with a convincing 12-0 five-inning win. The 12-run victory by the Wildcats concluded their first series of the season. Arizona (3-0) opened its 2014 season by outscoring the Golden Eagles (0-3) by 33 runs in all three games combined. The Wildcats run-ruled Southern Mississippi in the three games and gave up just four hits as well. “First weekend we had good energy,” said head coach Mike Candrea after Sunday’s win. “Each weekend is kind of a test, and you either pass or fail the test, and go back to the drawing board.” Sunday, Candrea received a strong performance in the circle by starting Arizona pitcher Estela Piñon. The senior went three innings and gave up zero hits while striking out seven in the process. Piñon was relieved to start the fourth inning by Friday’s starter, senior Kenzie Fowler. Candrea said he brought in Fowler to get her used to relieving, as he believes that could be a valuable role for her later in the season. Fowler pitched four innings on Friday and two on Sunday. “One thing I like about this team right now is we have a lot of options,” Candrea said. “We have a lot of kids that can come in and help in different roles, and the sooner we can establish those and get them to understand what they may be called

upon to do in the game will be huge for us. “ The Wildcats had a strong team effort at the plate Sunday afternoon, getting their 12 runs on 11 hits. Freshman second baseman Mo Mercado led the way by driving in five runs on three hits. “I felt pretty comfortable today,” Mercado said. “I had a pretty slow start yesterday and the day before, so today I tried a different approach with a real relaxed mindset and saw the ball well.” Mercado only had one hit in the first two games. “The big thing about hitting is that it’s a game of numbers,” Candrea said. “You’re going to go through some ups and downs. It’s about controlling what you can. [Mercado] is the type of kid that will continue to keep a good mindset.” In the first and fourth innings of Sunday’s game, Arizona was held scoreless. They were the only two innings this weekend where it was unable to get at least one runner across the plate. In the circle, Piñon’s two walks in the first inning were the only Southern Mississippi runners to reach base Sunday. In the first two games, 13 Golden Eagle batters reached base and two scored. “Right now it’s just trying to feel what we have and what their best roles will be,” Candrea said. “It could be changing from weekend to weekend, but as the season goes on I’m sure we’ll get a little more established.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella

year not only in the game, but in practice. And Rondae is now playing more [power forward] than he ever has. “ Gordon and freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson combined to grab 10 rebounds and score 33 points, most of which came in the paint. Unusual rebounders, such as 6-foot1 junior point guard T.J. McConnell, also picked up the slack, with six on Sunday. In the two most recent games McConnell has collected five offensive rebounds, uncommon for someone of his position. “Brandon [brought] length, size and depth,” Miller said. “As a guard sometimes you can almost rely on them to get the rebounds. Now our guards have to get in there and block out.” The team effort in the paint carried outside and translated into team defense against the Beavers’ backcourt. One of Oregon State’s most dangerous scorers is senior guard Roberto Nelson. The sharp-shooter finished Sunday’s game with three of his 12 shot attempts. “The bigs did a good job of helping us,” McConnell said. “They filled the gaps. It was a team effort on Nelson.” Miller admitted the team is still adjusting to the loss of Ashley. But even after losing Ashley’s size, the Wildcats’ identity of being a physically dominating basketball team that Gordon talked about has not and will not change. “When you’re a man-to-man [defensive] team like we are, the analogy is like a running football team,” Miller said. “Sometimes you only get 2 or 3 yards a carry but if you stay with what you do well sometimes in the second half it opens up and it opens up some other things.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella

The Arizona swimming and diving teams knocked off rival ASU at their last dual meet of the season on Saturday. The women won 171.5 to 105.5 and the men 158.5 to 116.5. Held at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center in Tempe, Ariz., the meet began with a pair of Arizona victories in the 200y medley relay. The UA women placed first and second in the event with the team of Bonnie Brandon, Emma Schoettmer, Katja Hajdinjak and Margo Geer touching the wall in 1:41.65, followed closely by the team of Alana Pazevic, Eve Sarris, Ashley Evans and Grace Finnegan, who finished in 1:43.31. The men did the same as Mitchell Friedemann, Kevin Cordes, Andrew Porter and Brian Stevens earned the top spot with a time of 1:29.16, while Michael Sheppard, Kevin Steel, Renny Richmond and Jeff Amlee touched in 1:30.29. In the third event, freshman Tjasa Oder ground out a win in the 1000y freestyle with a time of 9:55.21. Brandon continued the onslaught as she won both the 200y freestyle and the 200y backstroke. She also

collected the final individual victory of the day, the 200y individual medley with a time of 2:03.40. The first individual victory on the men’s side went to Mitchell Friedemann, who finished the 100y backstroke in 48.23. Cordes extended his unbeaten season in individual breaststroke events. The 20-year-old won the 100y breaststroke in 53.75, and the 200y event in 1:56.54. Schoettmer also swept the day’s breaststroke events, finishing the women’s 100y breaststroke in 1:02.59 and the 200y race in 2:16.51. Sprinting her way to victories in two freestyle events, Geer outtouched her competitors by more than a second in the 50y free. The women also dominated the 100y butterfly event, securing the top four spots. Senior Sam Rowan earned a victory in the last individual event for the men, the 200y individual medley. He cruised into the wall with a time of 1:49.98. A win in the 400y freestyle relay capped off the meet as the team of Geer, Pazevic, Lelli and Finnegan finished in 3:21.71. — Follow Mark Armao @MarkArmao

just did everything together and it feels good.” Arizona’s defense improved substantially over its 11 conference losses. The Wildcats held ASU (20-4, 9-3) to 49 points, 25.6 points less than their season average of 74.6 points per game. ASU’s 49 points were its lowest total of the season and the fewest points scored against Arizona since January 1997 when the Sun Devils scored 42 points. “Coach always talks about giving more effort,” junior guard Keyahndra Cannon said. “That’s what we did today.” In addition, the Sun Devils were held to a 31.9 percent field goal percentage, which is 12 percent less than their season average of 43.9 percent from the field. “I want to give credit to our team,” UA head coach Niya Butts said. “We executed the defense game plan.” This is Arizona’s first win since Dec. 29 against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and the program’s first win over ASU since February of 2011, when the Wildcats beat the Sun Devils 73-61. Butts said she hopes this win will provide a boost for the team coming down the stretch, especially with two tough games looming against California and Stanford. “We talked about it in the locker room, nobody is going to give you anything,” Butts said. “You have to go in there and you have to make plays. We have to take what we did today and try to work on it.” The Wildcats have four days off before taking on California on Friday in Berkeley, Calif., and will have plenty of time to game plan for their rematch with Cal.

Q I get bad cramps during my period.



Is there anything I can do to lessen the pain or get rid of them?

A. You are not alone when it comes to cramping during a period. Menstrual pain and cramping comes in different severity levels and can even interfere with daily activities. They usually start right before your period, will be the most severe within 24 hours after bleeding has started, and then decrease in severity over the next day or so. Making some of these changes below can help lessen menstrual cramping: Diet: Caffeine (coffee, soda, energy drinks, etc.) and alcohol have been found to make menstrual cramps worse. Instead, drink herbal teas and water. Calcium, fiber, magnesium, and Vitamin E are some nutrients which can also help fight menstrual cramps. Throughout the day, eat smaller portions more frequently. This helps give your body constant energy which will allow you to get up and move around. Exercise: Helps to relieve menstrual cramps

and also stress by promoting blood circulation throughout the body. Examples include: stretching, yoga, walking, weight lifting, hiking, and cardio. Other Strategies: Getting enough sleep, heating pads, hot baths and showers, and ibuprofen or naproxen can all help. Birth control is another option to minimize cramping. If you are interested about getting on birth control or want to talk with a medical provider, you can make an appointment with our Women’s Health Clinic at (520) 621-9202. These strategies are suggestions, some of which may be more effective than others. If you experience severe cramping, it’s a good idea to get checked by a medical provider to rule out other possible causes for the pain. To make an appointment at Campus Health, call (520) 621-9202.

New album from lead singer of The Shins BY Christianna Silva The Daily Wildcat


ames Mercer and his perfectly kept beard have been killing it in the music scene since 1996 when he became the lead singer and guitarist for The Shins. Recently, he teamed up with producer Danger Mouse (the man behind the music of Gnarls Barkley, The Black Keys and U2) and started Broken Bells in 2009. On Feb. 4, Broken Bells came out with their new album, After the Disco, which has a strangely different feel than The Shins’ music. When The Shins gave the world “New Slang,” a song with almost 3 million views on YouTube, critics and fans rejoiced. The lyrics flowed through stereos across the world, taking “ignorance is bliss” and turning it into something with more meaning than just an overused cliché. Between the rhythm guitar, the soothing voice that only Mercer has, and tambourine

filling the gaps between the bass and the lead guitar, there is nothing missing from this classic tune. This idea is true for the entire album, Oh, Inverted World. Throughout this album, the bands add more electronics and sounds, giving its lyrics a truly unique aura. To explain this perfection more simply, Oh, Inverted World is the album that makes your dad cry while he polishes his guns; it’s the album that you don’t actually hate listening to when your hipster friends put it on the radio in their Volvo 240 Wagon. As time went on, James Mercer began singing and playing for Broken Bells. Close your eyes, and think about Oh, Inverted World. Now take that album, throw it around the ’70s disco scene, toss it to 2014, pop in a few more minor chord melodies and you have Broken Bells’ new album, After the Disco. After the Disco is the perfect album to have in your car. The synths will please the pop

music lovers everyone inevitably gives a ride at some point, the cohesiveness of the vocals with the rest of the instruments will please your musician friends, and the originality and correct usage of electronics are sure to delight your fedora-wearing-hipster BFF. Oh, Inverted World and After the Disco both use delightfully pleasing chords with stoic lyrics describing the struggles and despair of life. These albums give an entirely new definition to “contradiction.” While After the Disco is a great listen, it is not the collection that Oh, Inverted World is. Mercers’ falsetto isn’t lacking on his new album, although it is occasionally overused, along with the synth. Whether you love the classic indie rock feel of The Shins give or prefer the modern-disco life of Broken Bells, James Mercers’ music career is still going strong. — Follow Christianna Silva @dailywildcat
