Cost-benefit analysis While this could be heretical, I believe you should always do a true cost-benefit analysis before purchasing any textbooks. I start by examining the impact not having a textbook could have on my grade and my learning. For example, if a professor has required readings from a textbook but this material will not appear on tests or in homework assignments, then not having a textbook will not impact my grade potential in the class. Another aspect to consider is your learning style. Some students prefer to read textbooks for additional clarification of lecture material, others feel more comfortable attending office hours. If I judge that a textbook is not truly required to succeed in a course, I do not purchase one. The library After the first week of classes, if you decide you would like to purchase the course textbook, double-check the UA Library before you buy it. The UA Libraries has online access to many textbooks free for students. Additionally, the UA Libraries have many physical books that courses use as textbooks or required reading. If you find UA does not have the material you need, you can always file an inter-library loan request and potentially have the book shipped to Tucson just for you. The UA Libraries do not always have the most up-to-date editions of books, but oftentimes a previous edition of a textbook

Textbook scholarships After all of these steps, your textbook bill could still run into the hundreds of dollars, especially for those courses with required purchases of online homework assignments. If that is the case, UA may have some scholarships for you. The UA Bookstore provides $10,000 in textbook scholarships annually alone. Additionally, many colleges and departments have extra money set aside to support students with financial need. It never hurts to reach out to your advisers and ask about additional resources. When you are already spending tens of thousands of dollars every year on tuition, a couple of hundred dollars more on textbooks every semester can seem immense, especially when some professors ignore their required textbooks altogether. I hope these tips help make your college experience slightly more affordable. — Randall Eck is a senior majoring in neuroscience & cognitive science and political science

Rent online, do not buy If you are still in need of a book, the cheapest option is not the UA Bookstore but rather an online rental of either an eBook or physical copy. Renting is oftentimes much more affordable than buying a textbook and most students will not consult textbooks after a course concludes. I once rented a textbook using Amazon for around $10 for the semester. The book normally costs over $100. Oftentimes, eBook rentals are a fraction of the cost of purchasing the textbook outright. If you still enjoy the feel of a physical book, you can always print out eBooks or rent physical copies to be shipped to your door.

Hand-me-downs If you have struck out with UA Libraries, there are other resources to turn to on campus. I always start by asking my friends about their textbook or reading collections. Once a friend lent me a $300 neuroscience textbook for the semester for just a cup of coffee. In addition to your friends, many UA departments have textbook libraries. The Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Department have over 50 textbooks that students can rent for the semester for free. These books, donated by previous students, encompass a number of our core neuroscience courses but also a plethora of electives. It is always worth a shot to ask around about a book before purchasing.

Eegee’s co-founder starts fresh with new restaurant BY ELLA MCCARVILLE @EllaMcCarville

Despite previous success, Eegee’s cofounder and restaurateur Ed Irving has decided to start fresh in the food service industry. Irving’s new restaurant, Slice and Ice, located on Grant Road, sells pizza, fries sandwiches and some originals and nolonger-used Eegee’s recipes. “I’ll always love Eegee’s — that’s my baby — but they don’t even have some of the [original] recipes on the menu,” Irving said. “The company that bought it, they bought it with the recipes that were in place in 2006. That changed a lot when Bob [Greenberg] and I founded it. I went back to the originals with a couple of changes because the times have changed.” While it was natural to compare Eegee’s and Slice and Ice due to Irving’s involvement in both, his new “ices” have distinct differences from his and Greenberg’s “eegees.” “As far as if you want to differentiate the products, it’s pretty different,” Irving said. “It’s very, very simple. Simple recipe: sugar, water, some natural flavoring. ” Irving described the menu at Slice and Ice in a simple manner as well. “I wanted a pizza place, and that’s what this is. We got six sandwiches. I can make 100 varieties of pizzas,” Irving said. “We feature seven different ones, but you can make anything you want. People like it. … I like the price.” The Slice and Ice menu also features the classic Eegee’s crinkle cut fry shape, but with new options such as cheese or garlic fries. The idea for Slice and Ice, which opened for business late January, came in the form of a Pieology pizza oven and a vacant restaurant. “It was just kind of like an alignment of the stars. I’ve owned this building for 10 years. It was a Kentucky Fried Chicken, and I bought it as an investment with a partner,” Irving said. “When the lease expired, they were not going to renew. So I had an empty building.” As for what happened next, Dominick Scala, a former Eegee’s employee whose tenure lasted around 39 years, explained, “He had the building, first of all, and they bought the equipment. So you’d think, well, we’ve got the building, we have the equipment, let’s give it a run.” Despite the fact that Scala stopped working at Eegee’s six years ago, he was back in another restaurant owned by Irving last week, according to both him and Irving. “I told him if you need a hand or you get in a bind, let me know. We had a good relationship,” Scala said. “I worked for him for … over 30-something years.” For Scala, those years were like a summer job. “A buddy of mine was working there in high school, and he goes ‘If you want a job, I can

get you a job,’” Scala said. “I started as a junior or senior in high school, and I looked at it as a summertime job. The summer lasted 39 years. It’s kind of funny how that worked out.” Paul Carillo, former operations manager of Eegee’s, wished Irving the best of luck. Carillo was a former employee, but he only helps out now and again at Slice and Ice. “I wish him all the luck in the world because we’re going to make it a success,” Carillo said. Since 2006, when Irving and Greenberg sold Eegee’s, Irving has not been as involved in the restaurant business. Now, he has some things to get used to. “I had culture shock after being retired from this business for 14 years, because prices have gone up tremendously,” Irving said. “I’ve seen it all around me in everything else.” Before opening, Irving had to raise the prices four times before a final menu was decided on. “I would break down the cost.

were] huge percentages, percentages that I knew we couldn’t sustain … a business for the price point I wanted,” Irving said. Despite Irving’s initial pricing challenges and Slice and Ice’s recent opening, current Slice and Ice employee Ethan Blodgett saw a bright future of the store. “This is our only store at the moment,” Blodgett said. “That’s another big thing. We’re not a big company yet. Hopefully, we will be soon. But for now, we’re just a small little one store.” As for expanding the menu, Irving had a couple ideas. “In 1977 we put french fries on the menu, should’ve thought of that a long time ago,” Irving said. “As it went, things get added on. So here, we started simply here. I want to do a breakfast item. Italian themed. Pizza would make you think that. My goal is to sell a breakfast calzone.” In the meantime, Irving will continue to work at Slice and Ice, elbow to elbow with his employees. Slice and Ice is located on 1905 W. Grant Road and is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. ANA BELTRAN | THE DAILY WILDCAT

NEWS | MISS TUCSON

UA alumna Tamara Statman crowned Miss Tucson Tamara “T” Statman, University of Arizona alumna, wins Miss Tucson on her chosen platform of skin cancer prevention, where she focused on educating people on the dangers of skin cancer. Statman played for the UA softball team and was a 4-year letter winner for the team BY SYDNEY JONES @sydney_jones21

When she graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2019, Tamara “T” Statman, the current Miss Tucson Del Sol and previous four-year letter winner for the UA softball team, wanted to find something new to be involved in. “If you’re passionate about something, you’ll find time for it,” Statman said. “I’ve always been interested in competing for anything, really. Once I finished my college softball career I said, ‘Hey, this is something I want to do,’ so I looked into it and I signed up.” Currently, Statman stays busy working at Cumulus Media, teaching for the Tucson Unified School District and giving softball lessons. While it may seem like she has her hands full with responsibilities, Statman doesn’t feel overwhelmed with her new role as Miss Tucson Del Sol. Making time for her new passion as a competition winner means a lot to Statman and the organization that grants the opportunity. “It’s about just being present in the community and really showcasing what Miss Tucson is and what the Miss America organization can do for the city of Tucson,” Statman said. Miss America has existed for 98 years and is changing the dynamics of how pageants are viewed in modern times, according to the organization’s website. “Technically, the Miss America organization does not call itself a pageant. It is a scholarship competition, and they’ve really come to disassociate themselves from that,” Statman said. “Miss America is its own entity, and it says that it’s one of the largest providers of scholarships for women.” The competition was the first to offer a talent category and scholarships for women to use towards their education goals. Last year, candidates were “no longer judged on outward appearance,” according to the Miss America website. “I danced,” Statman said. “I did a solo Charleston which was really interesting and really fun.” With the elimination of the swimsuit competition and additional focus on platforms of candidates, “Miss America 2.0,” as the website calls it, was born.

According to Statman, the competition includes a nine-minute interview with various questions that contestants must practice before competing. “They could ask me literally anything, whether it’s about the Miss America organization or about your resume or even about current issues such as politics and news,” Statman said. Contestants are also given the opportunity to speak about a chosen platform they feel is important. “My platform is skin cancer prevention,” Statman said. “Part of that is educating people on the dangers of skin cancer and getting people to talk about it.” Statman met with the Skin Cancer Institute of the UA Cancer Center to get her platform spoken about in the community. “I was able to speak with a local state representative to get the bill reintroduced to the state senate about banning the use of tanning beds for those under the age of 18,” Statman said. “Right now it’s going through democratic procedure.” John Dalton is a friend of Statman’s and serves as the vice chair for the City of Tucson Human Relations Commission. He said that Statman was motivated to do something new such as compete for Miss Tucson after she graduated from the UA. “It’s definitely a different world from sports or softball,” Dalton said. Dalton noticed Statman’s hard work in preparing for interviews, practicing her walk and working to become a better representative for Tucson. “She’s always been able to do pretty well,” Dalton said. “She was still a little nervous.” Although the thrill of the competition is certainly exciting for those close to Statman, Dalton is most proud of how she is advocating for her platform. “She’ll definitely bring more attention to the topic of skin cancer prevention and be able to work with people at a higher level,” Dalton said. “You have more access when you have some sort of title. You stand out and people are more likely to listen than just your average person.” Statman will go on to compete for the title of Miss Arizona in June 2020 and looks forward to the new competition.

Three things that can put Arizona baseball back into the NCAA tournament BY JACOB MENNUTI @jacob_mennuti

After finishing the 2019 campaign with 10-straight wins and going 14-1 in the final month of the season, Arizona baseball fell just shy of qualifying for the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. Despite ending the season on a high note and having what might have felt like a strong enough resume to play in the postseason, head coach Jay Johnson felt there were a handful of games last season that Arizona let get away. “I don’t think any of those games were approached the wrong way; I think the execution needed to be better to finish a couple of those [games] out,” Johnson said. “You pick any one of five or six of them and it makes a difference, something we’ve always driven home. The answer to completing them is entirely on fundamentals, and that’s where we’re putting our focus.” Junior catcher and utility player Matthew Dyer admitted that the weight of missing the NCAA tournament last season affects the upcoming season. Dyer said, however, the team is taking that failure and turning it into motivation for the new year. “It carries over a little bit,” Dyer said. “We don’t like to put that pressure upon ourselves. We just play with that. It’s like a burning fire underneath all of us to come out and really show what we have. Each year is a new year. Thinking back to last year, there’s no doubt that we left the season with everything we had.” With the goal of returning to Omaha for the first time since 2016, the Wildcats will need to improve in a few different areas to relive the postseason experience. Here’s what Arizona baseball will need to do to this

season to return to the NCAA tournament in 2020. The pitching staff needs to carry its own weight It’s no secret that the number one problem for the Wildcats last year was their pitching. Arizona had no trouble swinging the bats last year, as the team ranked No. 3 in the country in batting average at .326 and No. 3 in the nation in total runs scored last season (548), according to the NCAA. The Wildcats struggled to close out games last year simply due to their ability to pitch in tight situations. Arizona compiled a team ERA of 6.21 in 2019, good enough for No. 249 in the country. That stat will surely see an improvement, as Johnson added former Oregon State pitching coach and 2017 Assistant Coach of the Year Nate Yeskie to the coaching staff this past offseason. Yeskie spent 11 seasons with the Beavers and won an NCAA Championship in 2018. The new hire is already showing its significance, as senior pitcher Davis Vainer is anticipating an improvement to himself and the pitching staff. “The hiring of Nate Yeskie, that was huge,” Vainer said. “He has the pedigree, an awesome track record and resume, so I think just picking his brain will definitely help me moving forward.” The defense has to help out the pitching Part of the reason for Arizona’s pitching being so poor last season was the defense behind them. The Wildcats threw away a ton of opportunities last year to get off the field by committing an error or two and extending the inning. Arizona was last in the conference in fielding percentage last year at .962 and surrendered the most errors in

the Pac-12 with 79. The next highest was Washington State at 65. Johnson believes the defense will be more reliable this season because of an increase in the number of players he has to choose from, something that his previous teams lacked. “I think our depth has really increased each year,” Johnson said. “The year we went to Omaha, it was like, ‘Man, I hope someone doesn’t get hurt.’ I think we’re in a good spot. We have a little more experience.” Consistency will define this team’s success If you ask Johnson what the most important thing for returning to Omaha will be, he’ll tell you it’s consistency and fundamentals, and rightly so. Arizona had

plenty of hot and cold streaks embedded into its 2019 season, enough for the NCAA selection committee to leave the Wildcats off the final tournament bracket. The team began the year 5-0 before dropping four of its next six games. They then put together a seven-game losing streak before finishing the final month of the season 14-1. “Consistency. It’s not a rocket sciencetype deal,” Johnson said. “I think missing [the NCAA tournament] narrowly is a tough pill to swallow, and from the outside, you can go back and go like, ‘Hey, it was this game or that game.’ I could recite you a list of games last year. I think it just comes down to fundamentals.” The Wildcats will begin the 2020 season at home on Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. against Albany.

TALYA ZANDBERG IS FROM Tiberias, Israel and played for the Arizona Wildcats women’s tennis vs. Japan on Jan. 30 in Tucson.

Israeli Air Force athlete turned UA tennis champ BY JOHNNIE MITCHELL @johnniemitchh

The process of becoming a Division 1 collegiate athlete means practices starting from when you are 5 years old, a family or support system that is there to push you and a drive to go beyond where most people quit. For Talya Zandberg, however, it is all that and more. Zandberg is from Tiberias, Israel. She used to sit and watch her four older brothers practice and play, and after repeatedly going to one of her brother’s practices, she finally got what she wanted. “My mom signed me up so we could play together,” Zandberg said. From there, Zandberg was hooked on tennis. She practiced with her brother beginning at 5 years old and never let go of it. She competed in dance as well, but when it was time to be serious and pick one, the answer was simple: tennis. Zandberg competed at a high level in Israel. She won first place at the Israeli Championship Junior U18, first place doubles at Future Ako, first place in both doubles and singles at the ITF Juniors Beer Sheva and first place in doubles at Romania G3, all before coming to the University of Arizona. Prior to coming to Arizona, Zandberg did something that most D1 athletes cannot add to their list of achievements, and that is serving in the Israeli army for two years. “Everyone has to go to the army in Israel, so it’s normal for us and it’s definitely a

good experience,” Zandberg said. Zandberg was also an athlete for the Israeli Air Force, so her long days managing both service duties and tennis are key to what prepared her for being a successful, full-time student-athlete. “My base was further from home, so I would stay in base. Sometimes you would get shifts to guard the base or have kitchen duties, but normally I’d wake up, go to practice, go to the base and go back to practice for those two years,” Zandberg said about her busy schedule. After serving for those two years, Zandberg was then ready for her next step in life: collegiate tennis. Former Arizona head coach Vicky Maes flew out to Israel to watch her play, and after discovering how Arizona supports their athletes and how nice the weather is for an outdoorsy person like herself, Zandberg knew that being a Wildcat was the destined choice for her. Zandberg is now a junior here at the UA and killing the game. She said she misses the warmth and community-like feeling Israel gives her compared to America’s “do your own thing” mentality, but getting to play on a team rather than for herself is definitely a perk. Plus, it’s a bonus that her family will be coming to the matches at the end of the month and she gets to visit home in the winter and summer. Zandberg is a proud Arizona Wildcat, and her roots from Israel and experience from serving in the Israeli Air Force while maintaining practices showed Arizona what success she could bring in her four years.

UAMA exhibit showcases local high school talent BY SUNDAY HOLLAND @sunday_holland

The third annual “Our Stories: High School Artists” exhibition opened Saturday, Feb. 8 at the University of Arizona Museum of Art, featuring artwork by high school students from across the city. This year, the exhibit showcases the work of 43 students from 15 different schools, according to Willa Ahlschwede, the UAMA’s assistant curator of education and public programs. Ahlschwede helped start the exhibition during its initial year and has been involved with the show as co-curator ever since. “The show highlights what’s going on in the classrooms,” Ahlschwede said. “The high school teachers themselves help to curate the show by selecting students they want to highlight and sending us the submissions.” According to Ahlschwede, the number of participating students has increased every year. The museum accepts every entry from the teachers they receive. The show is an opportunity for the students to have their voices heard by the public, Ahlschwede said, and to have their work hung on the same floor as works by Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, so these upcoming artists are being taken seriously. “[Our Stories] is important because it allows the average museum-goer a glimpse into the minds of young artists,” Sarah Hoy, an art teacher at Cholla High School, wrote in an email. “Students at this age are so unscripted and honest and are more willing to take risks with their artwork based on genuine interest.” Ahlschwede believes that it is the role of the UAMA to exhibit what young artists are expressing in their work. According to Ahlschwede, “Our Stories” first began because many of the high school art instructors offering their students’ work are UA alumni, so the museum had connections with educators across the city. “The teachers are so wonderful for promoting the work of their students and giving them opportunities like this,” Ahlschwede said. Alexis Pilar Negron is a junior at Cholla High School and is one of the participating artists from Hoy’s class. Her piece titled “Star Rising” is featured in the exhibit. “This particular piece is about one of my protagonists, Leo. Thanks to Mrs. Hoy, I actually drew it,” Negron said in an email. “I really enjoy seeing pieces come to life.” Araceli Gastelum is a junior at Palo Verde High Magnet School, and her piece in the show is called “Psychedelic Dejection.” “There are a lot of people in my life who have struggled with depression and drug addiction,”

Gastelum. “I listened to the song ‘Keeping Tabs’ by Cuco that had a similar vibe to this theme, so I used the lyrics for a blackout poetry assignment.” Gastelum has been creating art for about five years, but it was her art teacher Celeste Rumler who encouraged her to submit her work. What Gastelum loves about art is how she can put whatever comes into her mind onto paper, no matter the medium. Karen Mitchell who has been teaching for about 35 years, is in her fourth year teaching art at Palo Verde High Magnet School. She said one of her favorite things about teaching high school is watching her students develop creatively and artistically while also keeping them abreast of community art opportunities. “Art is in everything, art is everywhere,” Mitchell wrote in an email. “[Our Stories] is a great honor and opportunity for high school students to exhibit in a museum and compete for a scholarship based on a piece of work.” The show lasts until Sunday, April 26, with a closing reception from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on April 25. At the reception, a panel of judges will announce their top-five picks for the strongest artist awards, with a $1,000 award toward tuition if they enroll in the UA School of Art. The exhibit and the closing reception are both open to the public. “[The show] is an exciting chance to see artists you won’t see in other places who are trying new things,” Ahlschwede said. “It’s contemporary art, so it’s showing the now, a different perspective — especially if you’re not a teenager.”

“Students at this ag e are so unscripted and honest and are more w illing to take risks w ith their ar twork based on genuine interest.”

SPORTS | WILDCATS IN MLB

Arizona alumni in the MLB: Where are they now? As Arizona baseball gets ready to open up a new season this week, MLB teams will also head to their respective Spring Training camps very soon. The motto around Hi Corbett Field is “MLB Training Ground,” serving as a reminder that college baseball is a stepping stone to the MLB. It is posted around the coach’s offices, as well as in the captions of every social media post. With that in mind, here is a look at former Wildcats in the MLB and where they are right now BY ARI KOSLOW @Koslow_ari

KEVIN GINKEL RP, Arizona Diamondbacks

Ginkel made his major league debut last season on Aug. 5, 2019, against the Phillies, pitching 2/3 of a scoreless inning with one strikeout. He finished the year pitching 24 1/3 innings with a 3-0 record and 1.48 ERA. Ginkel enters his first full season in 2020 with what appears to be a very competitive Diamondbacks roster that made several key additions this offseason, bringing in Starling Marte, Kole Calhoun and most notably Madison Bumgarner. Arizona should compete in a very tough National League West division this coming season, and Ginkel could play a pivotal role in the Diamondbacks bullpen.

KEVIN NEWMAN SS, Pittsburgh Pirates

In his first full season as a starter, Newman appeared in 130 games in 2019, hitting .308 with 12 home runs, 64 RBIs and 16 stolen bases with an OPS of .800. The University of Arizona product was taken by Pittsburgh in the first round of the 2015 MLB draft, working his way up through the minor leagues to eventually make his major league debut in 2018. Newman builds off his first full season in 2020, while a rebuilding Pirates team looks to find some hope for the future.

SCOTT KINGERY 3B/SS, Philadelphia Phillies

Kingery appeared in 126 games in 2019 with the Phillies, hitting .258 with 19 home runs, 55 RBIs and 15 stolen bases, with an OPS of .788 in his second full season in the MLB. Kingery enters the 2020 season as the Phillies starting third baseman in an extremely talented infield alongside Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins. It was a disappointing 2019 season for the team, as they finished at 81-81 and will look to rebound this season with a deep roster from top to bottom.

MARK MELANCON RP, Atlanta Braves

Melancon started the 2019 MLB season in San Francisco with the Giants, where he appeared in 43 games to the tune of a 3.50 ERA over 46.1 innings pitched with 44 strikeouts and 16 walks. Right before the trade deadline, he was dealt to Atlanta. Melancon appeared in 23 games with the Atlanta Braves, pitching 21 innings with a 3.86 ERA and 24 strikeouts to just two walks. He worked as the Braves primary closer as well, saving a total of 11 games. In Atlanta’s Division Series loss against the St. Louis Cardinals, Melancon appeared in three games where he allowed four runs over the three innings he pitched in. Melancon will remain the closer for the Braves heading into the new season, as Atlanta looks to win the National League East for the second consecutive year.

Researchers develop AI that understands social cues BY GABRIELLA COBIAN @GabriellaCobian

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency awarded a $7.5 million grant to researchers at the University of Arizona to develop artificial intelligence that can comprehend social signals and human exchanges. Researchers plan to study the AI within a video game format where it will then be played by humans. Adarsh Pyarelal, research scientist for the School of Information in the Machine Learning for Artificial Intelligence Lab and principal investigator for the project, explained what the research will try to solve. “Actually understanding the content of the dialogue is really not an easy thing for a computer to do,” Pyarelal said. “There’s been a lot of research in the last couple of decades. I would say we’re really trying to bring together sort of complementary strengths from many labs to attack this really hard problem.” Pyarelal said the project will look into specific things people take for granted, such as recognizing people’s body language and facial expressions. The development could help incorporate AI in individualized tutoring. An AI tutor could potentially recognize when a student is feeling frustrated in the way a teacher understands, according to Pyarelal. Health sciences has also taken an interest in the technology, like to help in recognizing when a patient is in distress.

The grant negotiation took place in June 2019 and, in the end, a million dollars was taken out of the funds. Pyarelal expects the project to last four years, until the end of 2023. According to Pyarelal, multiple people are needed due to the complexity of the project, so the grant will support four labs and 20 personnel. Pyarelal said he hopes to make free software tools accessible to everyone and advance the state of the art in the field while writing papers to share with the scientific community. Clayton Morrison, associate professor for the School of Information and co-principal investigator for Theory of Mind-based Cognitive Architecture for Teams, or ToMCAT, explained his role in the project. “The work that I do is at the intersection of machine learning and artificial intelligence methods that involve what’s called automative planning,” Morrison said. “For this project, we’re building an AI system that is able to pay attention to human users that are using the system … A key focus of the project is to do a better job of understanding how teams of humans who are collaborating on a task get along.” The AI system will understand what humans are trying to do or accomplish, and Morrison’s role is to develop the technology that will make sense of what people are doing. “We learn how to get along with each other and collaborate,” Morrison said. “A key part of that is the ability to, in a sense, read the minds

of other people.” He hopes to make machines able to understand people’s expressions. “Fundamental work in natural language processing, understanding language, people who are using the system are going to talk to each other as well as with the system,” Morrison said. “We’re also going to be measuring some aspects of people: what their expressions are, how they’re behaving like and what their tone of face is.” Special equipment will be used to read electrical activity that can be recorded on the surface of the skull.

professor and co-principle investigator on the project, provided insight on the process. “We will develop an understanding of team coordination and performance that is amenable to interventions,” Barnard said in an email. “For example, team dynamics in a search-and-rescue scenario or a triage scenario, where there are physical risks as well as social and emotional factors, could be improved by monitoring systems that can help the team do their job. You might think of the end goal as digital assistants for the team as a whole that understands that social and emotional factors can be extremely important for success and safety.”

UA & U-MATTER help opioid users get treatment BY LAUREN ROWE @laurenrowe826

The University of Arizona has received a $1.47 million grant to join the Unified Medication Assisted Treatment Targeted Engagement Response project, or U-MATTER, along with the Tucson Police Department, CODAC Health, Recovery & Wellness Inc. and Pima County to help opioid users seek treatment rather than imprisonment, according to a UA press release. According to Josephine Korchmaros, the director of UA’s Southwest Institute for Research on Women, the project has two main purposes. The first is to assess the impact of the program by looking at how many people are involved in treatment. The second purpose looks at the implementation of the program, such as how the partners are working together and if any improvements need to be made.

The ultimate goal of U-MATTER is multilayered. “Of course we want to have an impact on the rates of not just opiate misuse, but the misuse of any substances and, of course, the reduction and rate of overdoses and fatalities of opioid misuse,” Korchmaros said. “We also want an increase in the number of people who are connected to and engaged in appropriate treatment and services. We hope to see improvements over time in their health and well-being.” According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, on June 5, 2017, Gov. Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency following a record number of opioid-related deaths in 2016. From that state of emergency, plans for action such as the Opioid Action Plan and the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act began. As a result, Ducey declared an end to the state of emergency on May 29, 2018. Programs such as U-MATTER, however, still recognize the transformative impact

they can have on the opioid crisis and how they can help those with substance misuse. Korchmaros said all of the U-MATTER partners have something to offer for the success of the project. “We all bring different strengths, different types of expertise, and we all play different roles in trying to address the issue and improve community well-being,” Korchmaros said. “The extent of the impact we can have working together is going to be much greater than what each of us could do separately.” Karissa Layseca, a UA junior, said she can see the good in the UA joining in on the program but also has her reservations. “This is a cool concept. The U of A is already a big research school, so I think they have a lot of advanced resources to see if the deflection process will actually help,” Layseca said. “I kind of also think it attaches a weird connotation to the school with opioids and everything, but it is a good opportunity for the program.”

The initial deflection program began in July 2018 and was successful from the start, providing 117 people with treatment rather than imprisonment before the end of October 2018, according to the Arizona Daily Star. The Southwest Institute for Research on Women got involved in the program on Nov. 1, 2018, to evaluate the success of the project, Korchmaros said. Since their involvement, 1,000 people have been deflected and have been connected to treatment and services, Korchmaros said. “I think already we can see that we’ve had an impact just in terms of getting people connected, and as we move forward in the project, we’re seeing more and more evidence that that’s actually resulting in people getting connected and engaged in treatment and services,” Korchmaros said. “As we continue with the evaluation, we’ll continue to look at that and be able to have a good idea in a year or two about really how much the program has had an impact.”

OPINION | TECHNOLOGY

Smartphones: It’s how you use them BY KAYLEIGH COOK @kayleig17913589

G

oing offline from social media is a common recommendation for any young person who’s struggling with a range of issues, from procrastination to self-love. Recently, I read an article by the MIT Technology Review titled “Teens are all obsessed with social media? Not so much.” The article consists of interviews with students who don’t use social media or, in some cases, the internet at all. The article’s tone is positive; this theme is consistent with the hopes for young people of older generations, who may find the concept of social media unnerving or who don’t understand it. I fully support any person’s decision to unplug and enjoy life as it happens, and I understand how easy it is to get caught up in people’s seemingly

perfect internet lives and judge your own life too harshly. That being said, sometimes I get frustrated with the righteousness of some people who choose to stay offline. Though it may be a good idea for some people to unplug for a while or permanently from social media, or some people just have no interest in getting a computer whatsoever, that doesn’t make it okay to shame others who choose to continue to be online. The idea that social media is a toxic wasteland and any person who uses it is a selfie-snapping zombie is blatantly false and unfair to those who may enjoy using the internet. Social media can be used to educate, to advertise, to spread awareness, to support or to share cute and funny videos. It can be a very useful tool, and those who choose to use it should not feel bad about that decision. I would also like to address the fact that a couple of these young people interviewed don’t use or own computers or phones. As a college student, I have to spend a good portion of my time on my laptop, and most

of that time is spent doing homework or studying for classes. All of my class tools are online and every teacher I have posts each week’s homework on their webpages, and it is my responsibility to look at it and complete my work. I know this is purely anecdotal, but I would guarantee a large portion of the University of Arizona’s student body is in a very similar, if not exact, situation. I’m not saying it’s bad to not have a computer, but it also isn’t bad to have one either, especially if you’re required to have one for your education. On a smaller — and possibly much pettier — note, not having a phone is just downright silly. How do you call your mom when you’re away from home? How do you get a hold of your friends to make plans? What do you do if you break down on the side of the road on a lonely highway with no other cars in sight? If you don’t want a smartphone, you can go retro and get a flip phone (yes, I’m sure — my dad just bought a new one last month!). But you should have a phone, for safety and your mom’s sake. I’m not trying to insult anyone for not

having phones or not using social media. I just want to point out that in the 21st century it’s unrealistic to expect many people to not be online, and just because someone is, it doesn’t mean they ignore everyone in real life or never take their eyes off their phone. There’s a balance of device usage and offline time, and I absolutely agree that many of us who use devices struggle to find that balance sometimes — I know I do. But I also appreciate technology and the amazing things it can do, and I don’t think we should be looked down upon for using it. Everyone enjoys and needs something different, and that isn’t a bad thing. Community members can coexist with technology and advance the human race while we keep ourselves human. Sorry selfie-snapping zombies, not today.

What’s the number one thing we’re told to do when being stopped by a police officer? Hint: It’s not to run. Apparently, a university student was not aware of this when she was approached by a University of Arizona Police Department officer in the early morning hours of Jan. 31 near Banner — University Medical Center. The female student was spotted by the officer standing in the middle of the road near Helen Street and Martin Avenue. He was concerned for her, since she showed clear signs of intoxication, and tried to approach her. This is when she began running away. The officer identified himself as UAPD, but she continued running and the officer ran after her, worried she would run onto Speedway Boulevard into traffic. She continued to run even when a driving UAPD officer and two Tucson Police Department vehicles arrived and turned on their lights while driving alongside her. She continued to run into the parking lot of the Palm Shadows Apartment complex in between cars and even into a car before she finally surrendered with her hands in the air. A TPD officer then placed her in handcuffs. She declined to take a breathalyzer test because she had not been drinking, even though the officer listed multiple signs of her intoxication. When asked why she had run and continued running for so long, she stated she was covering for her friends and they couldn’t run as fast as her, even though she had no friends with her for the whole incident. She said she had been at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house but insisted she had not

Tucson is well known for its seemingly eccentric population of people and things they do. It’s what makes it our beloved “Dirty T.” One particular event on Jan. 29 involving two Tucson locals at the corner of Speedway Boulevard and Campbell Avenue is just one example of how and why Tucson has earned its charming nickname. An officer that was working in UAPD’s Crime Prevention office was approached by a man who walked in and expressed his concern from seeing an armed male subject outside the building. The man explained he had been sitting at the light waiting to make a U-turn when he saw a man on the corner of the street having what appeared to be a normal conversation with two other men inside a truck in one of the lanes near him. The man on the street then suddenly raised his voice and walked back toward his stuff, which was located on the stone UA sign on the southwest corner of Speedway Boulevard and Campbell Avenue, and produced a firearm from a black case. The man then began yelling at the occupants of the truck, and they were yelling back at him, but he never pointed the gun at anyone, according to witness. The truck finally drove away when the light changed and the man returned the firearm to where the rest of his belongings were. Two officers went to check on this incident and located the man matching the description the witness had given sitting on the UA sign. When asked about the situation, the man gave a more in-depth story, stating that someone in the truck had started shouting obscenities at him for no reason and when he shouted back, the passenger of the truck then produced a 9mm handgun. The man on the street then went and got his pellet gun out of its case and returned to the curb to continue shouting at the truck while holding it, but he had no malicious intentions. The man on the street was asked to move by TPD and UAPD and was informed that he would be contacted

Taco Bell is clearly one of everyone’s favorite cravings. Whether it’s after a night out or just a quick run in the mornings, Taco Bell lovers everywhere can understand the need for a late-night Crunchwrap Supreme. But one particular student’s need for Taco Bell went a little too far. In the early morning hours of Jan. 29, long after Taco Bell had closed, UAPD received several calls of high priority from TPD of a student causing problems at the Taco Bell located at the corner of campus. It was reported that a UA student had tried to break in to the Taco Bell doors, used a rock to try to break into the shed and also attempted to get into an employee’s car that was leaving. When a UAPD officer arrived on the scene to assist TPD, he approached the student and asked what was going on. The student said he was just trying to get food, even though the restaurant was clearly closed with the lights off and doors locked. The officer then asked the student why TPD had gotten reports of him trying to break into a vehicle and the restaurant, to which he replied he had not attempted to gain entry to either of these. The officer realized the student had an odor of alcohol and was slurring, so the officer asked the student if he had been drinking, and the student said he had been at Frog & Firkin, the bar/restaurant on University Boulevard. The student was cited and released with a Code of Conduct violation through the Dean of Students. — Police beats are written and produced by the news desk at the Daily Wildcat.
