Talking about the Fourth Industrial Revolution



FlixBus offers affordable rides along West Coast A new bus service, popularized throughout Europe, has made its way to Tucson. It emphasizes making longdistance travel more comfortable and affordable. FlixBus, a Munich-based startup company, opened in Tucson a few weeks ago, offering seats with more legroom and free wi-fi. The bus system allows passengers to travel from Tucson to several cities for a cut-rate price, with Tucson being the first of many cities to be part of the firm’s U.S. expansion. Tucson riders can reach 20 cities at relatively low cost, including 11 in California, two in Nevada and six other destinations in Arizona, including Phoenix and Yuma. According to the FlixBus website, passengers can “enjoy comfortable and easy bus travel between must-see cities on the West Coast at unbeatable prices.” Traveling from the University of Arizona to Phoenix will cost $9.99, and you can reach 17 other destinations, varying in price, from Tucson. For all trips from Tucson the bus will board at the Denny’s at 555 North Freeway, in the parking lot directly west of the restaurant. — Pascal Albright

Uber may start screening riders for drunkenness Uber, the popular ridesharing program, has applied for a patent that will explore identifying drunk passengers to better tailor its ride options for customers. The patent describes a system that learns how you typically use the Uber app, so it can identify unusual behavior, possibly to avoid drivers from picking up drunk customers and having to struggle to get them home. According to an article by CNN, drivers may be warned of their passenger’s state and riders in an especially unusual state may only be matched with drivers with relevant experience or training. Passengers also might not be given the option to partake in a shared ride, based on their state. As of June 17 the detection system is not yet available, and some customers have expressed their concerns about the idea on social media outlets. — Pascal Albright

Beat the heat on the Salt River Summer can be spent several ways, one being Salt River

Tubing’s Floating Beach Blast, an Arizona tradition that many have enjoyed for decades. The Salt River Recreational Area is an inexpensive getaway close to the Phoenix Metropolitan area and offers “chills and thrills” while shooting the rocking rapids. Relax and float on the cool and refreshing mountain-stream waters and experience the natural wonders of the “MiniGrand Canyon” in Tonto National Forest. Open through September and for only $17 plus per person/ tube, one may choose two-, three- and five-hour trips that include float time and Shuttle Bus ride. There are several rules to follow when you are tubing including no alcohol or drugs, sunblock or hats must be worn to protect from sun damage and proper clothing including tennis shoes are recommended. It is recommended you also avoid littering, so “stash it and bag it” and tieing the tubes together is frowned upon. If you follow the rules, the Salt Water tubing adventure awaits. Located at 9200 North Bush Highway in Mesa, Salt Water tubing is open from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. seven days a week. — Pascal Albright

Families should remain together



he current news cycle has been dominated by the stories of migrant children separated from their parents at the border. The stories are undeniably heart wrenching; the photos and audio clips, more so. NPR reported in a June 19 article that since May, there have been 2,342 children separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border, based on information released by the Department of Homeland Security. NBC News reported on June 22 that of those roughly 2,300 children, only 500 have been reunited with their families – about 21 percent. This information also came from the Department of Homeland Security. However, the unknown information is weightier than the known. Children are being held in shelters – The Washington Post has started trying to track where. The Post reported that there are shelters in at least 15 states, and children are sometimes taken from the border and then sent to Texas, California or even the East Coast. Even worse, The Washington Post has explored how parents are supposed to reunite with their children, and the process is slow. Parents can be separated from their children – including very, very young children – for months, with no idea when they might get to see them again. This could, quite clearly, lead to severe psychological issues, especially for children. In fact, the United Nations has issued a statement saying “detention of children is punitive, severely hampers their development, and in some cases may amount to torture.” The UN experts continued, saying “the separations have been conducted without notice, information, or the opportunity to challenge them. The parents and children have been unable to communicate with each other. The parents have had no information about the whereabouts of their children, which is a cause of great distress. Moreover, we are deeply

concerned at the long-term impact and trauma, including irreparable harm that these forcible separations will have on the children.” On June 20, President Donald Trump signed an executive order, saying “it is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources.” While family detainment is, as a whole, not something to be celebrated, it is a step up in this situation. However, issues of migration and borders remain, as does the pressing problem of what will happen to the thousands of children already separated from their parents. The Daily Wildcat calls for action on these problems. A recent Los Angeles Times story revealed that there is a children’s shelter just down the road from the University of Arizona — Estrella del Norte, at 1601 N. Oracle Rd. This is not a problem that does not touch campus. This is not a problem that does not concern the Tucson community. These abhorrent actions should concern the everyone, U.S. citizen or not. The separation of children from their parents has caught the attention of the world, as it should. The U.S., for a long time, has not been the same welcoming place for the lost and downtrodden. Lately, it has been stamping on those it once pledged to shelter. We need to do better. This destruction of families should never have occurred, but now, we need to fix it. Make your voice heard, support those in need and criticize the perpetrators.

Living with no internet; an interesting adventure OPINION



ttending college in the modern era comes at a price, both literal and figurative. That means several things, and one — some may argue the most important — is the ability to have access to information, a.k.a. the internet. I live in a five-bedroom house a few blocks away from school, work two jobs and consider myself a full-time student even in the summer with an online class. That being said, an online class requires the internet, but with my roommate out of the country and my inability to assemble the new internet router, I have been living in a house that is off-the-grid. Young adults — particularly undergraduate and graduate students — are more likely to use the internet and own tech devices than the rest of the general population, according to a 2011 study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. “Nearly 100 percent of college students and 92 percent of nonstudents in the 18-24 age range were internet users,” said Jie Jenny Zou, the author of the paper published from the Pew study. “By comparison, only 75 percent of adults nationally report using the internet.” I, however, have had to use the internet away from the comfort of my home. I have been getting up early and making my commute to school to take an online class — which some have said defeats the purpose of the online class, given that it is also available in person on campus. It's ironic, like that Alanis Morissette song, that the time I need the internet most I don’t have easy access to it. I know that I can use my data hotspot, but that is beside the point. At my house, we pay for wifi, and given that I cannot assemble the new transmitter — it’s sitting on the table in my kitchen — I have lost out on completing my coursework or any online work, including watching Netflix, in the comfort of my home. I am not saying that this is a bad thing; it builds motivation for me to get out of my house and go to a place that emphasizes learning. This, I have found, also reduces the amount of distractions I have. “Students are more distracted than ever. They tend to check their digital devices, particularly, their smartphones, an average of 11.43 times during class for non-classroom activities. A solid 12 percent do texting, emailing, checking the time or other activities


PASCAL ALBRIGHT TAKES TIME to catch up on his reading of Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle while off the internet. He said he has become motivated to come to campus to work on his online class as well as get other work done.

in class more than 30 times a day,” said Dian Schaffhauser, author of Research: College Students More Distracted Than Ever. I find truth in the research provided, for sitting in a boring hour-long economics lecture about the scientific principles behind every economic choice made can most definitely lead a student — myself — to look at other things on a laptop. “Students spend a fifth of their time in class doing things on their devices that have nothing to do with their school work,” Schaffhauser wrote. Not having internet and being on campus to complete work has made me a more productive person. At home I cook meals, play with my cats, water my plants and watch my favorite movies the old-school way, knowing that I will deal with any emails or communication issues in the morning. There are things, sometimes even people, that can be too distracting for us to stay focused on a goal. At home I am comfortable and in a relaxing environment, but being there while taking a class could lead me to not perform my best. I get distracted quite easily in a place where I can watch Netflix or other entertainment. To me, the click of a button that opens Netflix is too easy, which leads to me watching one of my favorite businessmen teach me

the rules of the office. Michael Scott said it best in season six, episode sixteen. “I am sort of a master of distraction. When I was a kid, my mom received compliments left and right from my teachers on how I was always able to distract others in class. Try to think, what were the first thirteen colonies? Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. [Michael covers his mouth and makes fart noises.]” Now that I am off the internet at home, it has lead me to be more productive. I do what I can, listen to the radio, clean and so forth knowing that I don’t have to check my email all the time. I enjoy being able to go to a coffee shop and get school work done and when I am home that halts until the next day. I may complain and will be thrilled to have the internet back at home when it is set up, but for now, I feel good about my decisions and fairly good about my grade in that online class.

STUDENTS ATTENDING THE UPWARD Bound program pose for a picture on the UA Mall. The program supports low-income high school students and helps them transition to campus life.

Outreach program puts campus life on display BY VICTOR GARCIA @VicGarcia96

The University of Arizona is home to many summer programs where high school students can prepare for college. With the campus nearly empty, there’s plenty of room for a younger generation to get a taste of the college experience. Upward Bound is one of eight TRIO programs funded through the U.S. Department of Education designed to serve high school students from lowincome families in programs that provide fundamental support in their preparation for college entrance. “We work specifically with Pueblo and Cholla high school students from grades ninth through seniors,” said Upward Bound Coordinator Maria Mata. According to Mata, this is the first year the UA’s College of Education has hosted Upward Bound, enrolling 60 high school students in the program. To be admitted into the program, students must be among the top 25 percent of their class, have a 3.0 GPA, have completed their 16 high school core academic courses and be an Arizona resident. TRIO organizes informational events throughout the nation. College-enrolled mentors visit high schools where they serve as drop-in tutors for assigned mentees. “We hire UA students that will serve as mentors to the students,” Mata said. “They meet biweekly at their school, where they’ll have one-on-ones with

time management, following up on their grades, and if they are juniors or seniors, definitely looking at SAT or ACT test prep and applying to scholarships and colleges.” Once summer rolls around and school is out, admitted students are given the opportunity to visit the UA campus for five weeks to receive academic instruction in the fields of mathematics, composition, linguistics and environmental science. “I like it; it’s nice that they help us learn about colleges,” said Pueblo High School sophomore Alexi Roman. “They taught us about how to enroll into colleges, a lot on what some colleges are strong in.” Through five weeks of lectures, group activities and mentorship, Roman has a glimpse of what he might pursue once he begins as a college freshman. “They helped me explore a lot, and I didn’t really know what I want to do coming in, but now I do — I want to be an engineer,” he said. According to Mata, most of the students in the program are first-generation high school graduates from low-income families. “They have never been on the U of A campus or a university campus in general. Having them here on campus gives them that step ahead,” she said. Although UA is in the same city these students live in, the college community in Tucson is something most are very new to. Students showcased their work to staff, mentors and parents on June 25. After, students visited Arizona’s other two major universities, which, according to Mata, is an amazing opportunity.

Tinkerlabs build creativity and experimentation BY NICOLE GLEASON @DailyWildcat

The Tinkerlab is colorful and broken up into different stations. Two tables in the middle of the room have building blocks and puzzle pieces laid out. In one corner there is a bean bag and several books; in the other is a color wheel that helps teach children about primary and secondary colors. Another station allows children to examine themselves in a mirror while drawing a self-portrait. Designed to bring back ideas from the Renaissance era — an era in which science, art and mathematics were not three different branches of study but were considered one and the same — the University of Arizona Museum of Art presents Tinkerlabs to promote the idea of tinkering to build, draw and experiment. One objective for the Tinkerlabs is to get young children excited about science, math and art and to teach them about the connections between the three fields. “We were inspired by the tinkering makerspace movement in general. It’s the idea of having an educational space where there are materials available that attracts different groups of people so they can share skills and knowledge that they have and learn to create, make or experiment,” said Willa Ahlschwede, program coordinator for the museum. Vivid Renaissance-era artwork decorates some of the stations, while a board alongside the wall allows visitors to play with buckets of Legos by sticking the pieces to the board.


THE TINKERLAB, HELD AT the UA Museum of Art, holds several sessions throughout the summer that aim for community engagement, one being Makerspaces. Makerspaces are environments that experiment with problem solving, critical thinking and creativity.

Another station allows each visitor to tie a bead to a piece of thread and hang it on the display, showing how many people have come to the Tinkerlab. Ahlschwede explained how the threaded beads accumulate over the course of the summer and chuckled while explaining how overflowed this station became last session.

UAMA has several sessions throughout the summer, each to promote an environment that fosters experimentation, invention, problem-solving and creativity, according to Ahlschwede. From 3-D modeling to virtual reality to e-textiles to music technologies, the labs run from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursdays, for all ages. “With robotics and augmented reality, people can be more craft- and art- focused,” Ahlschwede said. “The labs are all kind of different, but they exist in schools, libraries and museums.” While Ahlschwede helps run the Tinkerlabs, the idea for the project came from Chelsea Farrar, a curator for the museum who specializes in community engagement. The upcoming summer events include E-Textile Robots on June 28 and July 26, which will show children how to build their own light-up robot figurine. A 3-D printing workshop on July 19 will teach youth all about 3D scanning and printing by playing with a 3-D mini race car model. XR (Cross Reality) Tech on July 5 and August 9 will teach about virtual reality games. Music and Tech on July 12 and August 2 will focus on the connection between technology and music and teach children how to code music — and at this Tinkerlab, a giant floor piano will be featured, according to Ahlschwede. Tinkerlabs will be open to the public for a general admission cost of $8 and free for UA students with ID, June 21 through August 16 during regular business hours. Regular hours for the museum are Tuesday through Thursday 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.


UA Recreation Center ranked 33rd in U.S. BY JON RICE @JSCatReport87

The University of Arizona’s Campus Recreation Center moved up to No. 33 on a list of the nation’s top 50 collegiate campus recreation centers, according to College Consensus. College Consensus is a website that aggregates college rankings and student reviews into a score for schools. The schools are then listed by score in various categories, from best research colleges to best liberal arts colleges, for example. According to College Consensus’s website, to make the top 50 list of campus recreation centers, schools had to first qualify for a College Consensus score, which came from publisher ratings and student reviews. From there, College Consensus editors selected schools they thought had “the most spectacular recreation centers” and ordered the schools by their College Consensus score.

Ranked at 33rd, UA’s Campus Rec has a lot to offer the prospective student , according to College Consensus. As one of the premiere recreation centers in the Southwest, College Consensus praised the UA for having “one of the most highly developed student recreation programs anywhere.” The website cites the centers indoor and outdoor activities and multiple wellness options as classes as especailly important. “In particular, UA offers an incredible number of opportunities from the Outdoor Rec program, from hiking and climbing to kayaking and caving – everything the Southwest has to offer.” Andrew Huff, assistant director of Outdoor Rec, said what really makes UA’s Campus Rec remarkable is the amount of training staff receive. “What sets us apart? For the outdoor side, intramurals. We train our staff at different levels,” Huff said. “We have a lot of strong individual programs.”

Huff said he was pleased to be included in the list. Natalie O’Ferrell, associate director of programs, saw the ranking more as a call to move even higher on the list, though she was pleased with the facilities that were highlighted. “Rankings happen two times out of the year,” O’Ferrell said. “This is one of several that we have been listed on. I ask the question ... what is someone else doing that we’re not doing?” Jake Minnis, fitness and wellness coordinator at Campus Rec, said he wanted to improve as a staff, but he liked how inclusive Campus Rec is. “We allow non-members to take part in individual and group activities,” Minnis said. “With individual programs, they are trying to reach their inclusive groups. They seek to cater to all ages and abilities regardless of disability.” Huff agreed, saying that while the staff was young, they’re always looking to improve. “We have a good idea of our

vision … where we need to go,” Huff said. Two other Pac-12 schools made the list. UCLA came in at No. 4 and University of ColoradoBoulder came in at No. 21. Both

schools have plenty of impressive amenities to offer students and inspire other campus recreation facilities to take note of what they’re doing to promote fitness in their student bodies.

You can call it a homecoming. The Phoenix Suns introduced Deandre Ayton in front of local and national media for the first time during a press conference Friday, June 22. For Ayton, it marked a return to the city he played his high school basketball in, and the state he made national headlines in as an Arizona Wildcat. “It was mind-blowing; it was a dream come true. Seeing the reactions on my parent’s faces was unreal,” Ayton said of the moment he was selected. For the Suns, losers of the most famous coin flip in NBA history, the organization finally landed its Big Man. In Ayton, the Suns received an instant upgrade to a front court that last season saw soon-to-be 36-yearold Tyson Chandler as its steadiest producer. First-year Suns head coach Igor Kokoskov said he would help to

empower and establish Ayton, with the season acting as both player and coach’s rookie year. “The competitiveness and leadership that he brings is huge,” Kokoskov said. “We’re going to encourage him to be the voice of this team.” For a franchise whose early years were marred by losing out on UCLA’s Lew Alcindor (now Kareem Abdul Jabbar) in a coin flip to the Milwaukee Bucks in 1969, the selection felt like a long time coming. “I think it was apparent early in the workout,” Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said of Ayton’s pre-draft workout. “We put him through the ringer to push him. He responded extremely well … he blew us away.” The Suns have recently fallen on hard times. After languishing in a tough Western Conference for the better part of a decade, the team finally hit rock bottom last season, finishing with a record of 21-61, worst in the NBA. Still, there have been signs of hope. Drafted in 2015, Devin Booker has electrified at times in his three seasons, erupting for a career high of 70 points in a single game during the 2016-2017

season. A young core that includes wingman Josh Jackson and rising scoring threat TJ Warren could make the young Suns dangerous. It’s that young core of players Ayton will be expected to lead, according to McDonough. Even though the Suns ended the season as the youngest team by average roster age in the NBA, Ayton didn’t seem fazed when asked what it would mean to lead such a young team. “We got young legs. We can run all day,” Ayton said, referring specifically to Booker and Jackson. “You just have to have great chemistry on and off the court and be the best teammates we can. We can make history. We can really start a winning legacy.” Ayton had previously mentioned Booker in an interview before the draft, saying the two could be “Shaq and Kobe 2.0,” a reference to the legendary Lakers’ duo of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, who three-peated their way to dominating the NBA in the early 2000s. Questions went primarily to the number one pick, however, the Suns’ 13th pick — Mikal Bridges, who was traded for 10th pick Zhaire Smith

— was also introduced, as well as second-round pickups George King from Colorado and French guard Elie Okobo. Ayton and Bridges seemed to have an instant chemistry, both mentioning how they had come to be friends during the draft process. “Going to events, being in the hotel, going on the bus, being around each other all the time cracking jokes, we built that chemistry,” Ayton said. “He’s a cool guy.” In the funniest moment of the press conference, King, the one player with experience against Ayton, offered up the advice he was given to stop the former UA center while at Colorado. “Try your best,” King responded dryly. The expectations that accompany the first pick were evident for Ayton. His new coach saw it, too. “He’s got a lot of potential with his size, length, ability as a rim protector, ability to protect the paint, so we’re going to go step-by-step with him,” Kokoskov said. Ayton said he welcomes the coming scrutiny. “This is the part of my life I have to get used to, and I’m ready,” he said.


DEANDRE AYTON, FORMER UA Basketball star, speaks at the Phoenix Suns NBA Draft conference at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix.



ARIZONA’S DEANDRE AYTON SHOWS emotion after an and-one play in the Arizona-USC Championship game at the 2018 Pac-12 Tournament on Saturday, March 10 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Phoenix Suns surprised absolutely no one Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, as NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced Deandre Ayton as their selection with the No. 1 overall pick. With the selection, the Bahamian joins the illustrious group of “big men” that have also been chosen first, including Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaquille O’Neal, Tim Duncan and Anthony Davis. He also joins a list that contains Michael Olowokandi, Kwame Brown, Andrea Bargnani and Anthony Bennett. But based on all measures and scouting outlooks, Ayton won’t be joining the latter group. Ayton draws comparisons to the great Olajuwon and his efficiency around the rim, Duncan and his feathery footwork and arsenal of post moves, and the indomitable O’Neal, who ran the floor in college like a runaway bull in Spain. But how a player fits into a team and organization is almost as important as the skills and leadership he brings. When does a player show up to go to

work every day? How does he interact with the staff? Does he like the city in which he’s currently living? All of these factors all can count as much as the coach of the team or the style of play. That’s why the Phoenix Suns hit a home run with their pick. Deandre Ayton played his senior year at Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, then packed up his things and traveled down south on I-10 to the University of Arizona, where he established himself as the most intriguing basketball prospect on earth. All Ayton has to do to get settled into his new career is move back to the city he once lived in, just up the road from where he played his college ball, eliminating some transitional headaches that can plague players in their early years. From the Suns’ perspective, this decision was a no-brainer. Because Ayton played his college ball down the road, he already has a built-in fan base in Phoenix due to the UA alumni that are scattered throughout the Valley of the Sun. Jersey sales, season tickets and other forms of revenue are already established by picking Ayton. If the Suns had decided to take another route with second

overall pick (and fellow Puma athlete) Marvin Bagley III, there would be a very understandable “wait and see” period that would hang over Bagley’s rookie season in order to gauge whether he was worth investing time and money in. This could also be a classic case of a situation “too-good-to-be-true,” and end up being a move that falls on its face. Michael Olowokandi stayed relatively close to home by moving south from the University of Pacific to Los Angeles to play for the Clippers, and he had a career that will go down in infamy. Nothing is a sure bet in the NBA draft, but the Suns made sure to cover their bases and pick a player that the fans want, while also picking the player with the highest upside going forward. He may be Olowokandi, or he might be Olajuwon. But one thing is for sure: Ayton will be remembered one way or the other — either for leading the Suns to the horizon, gallivanting to that ever-elusive championship, or being the biggest whatif and source of frustration in franchise history. There is no in between.

Former UA receiver recounts life in the fast lane A former All Pac-10 performer, Jay Dobyns eventually put his talents and skills to work for the ATF and U.S. government. After infiltrating the Hell’s Angles, his real trouble began BY MEKAYLA PHAN @DailyWildcat

Left by his own government to face death threats from three international crime syndicates, Jay Dobyns wrote his New York Times bestselling memoir “No Angel” to protect himself and his family. While writing the book that would drive his ongoing lawsuit against the U.S. government, he knew that there was still more of the story to tell. The former University of Arizona wide-receiver recently released his newest memoir “Catching Hell: A True Story of Abandonment and Betrayal” on May 30 with plans of making it his second in a trilogy. Dobyns joined the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives when he knew he wasn’t going to make it as a professional football player. “I went to the NFL Scouting Combine workout and thought I was going to show off. I was going to show everyone how wide receivers from the Pac10 conference played the game,” Dobyns said. “Ten minutes into the drills I realized I couldn’t do what they could.” Dobyns said that the two people he was paired to work out against turned out to be the “two finest wide receivers of our era.” They were Andre Reed and Jerry Rice. “They both went on to Super Bowls and Hall of Fame careers. I went on to do what I did. I believe all of us are happy with our results,” Dobyns said. During his career in the ATF, he went through over 500 investigations undercover and was the first to infiltrate the infamous biker gang, the Hell’s Angels. However, once his identity was revealed, a murder contract was placed on him and farmed out to the American Brotherhood, MS-13 and the 18th Street Gang in Los Angeles. His agency said they couldn’t help him, so he decided to expose his story in “No Angel: My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the Inner Circle of the Hell’s Angels” to give a “pause in the minds who intended to harm us,” Dobyns said. “The idea was my own. Going through traditional media, which I had already done, only offered limited staying power. I needed something more permanent,” he said. “I was invisible and insignificant to the shotcallers.” The ATF sued him for publishing the book without their permission, but the case was dismissed in Dobyns’ favor. He is still locked in a 14-year battle against the government, who he said is trying to frame him for arson in a fire that burned down his house in an assassination attempt in 2008. The closing arguments of the Department of Justice’s appeal will be made this fall. “After all that, the government continues to argue they did nothing wrong and that I deserve no consideration or compensation for what they put me through,” Dobyns said. “Fortunately, I have an attorney, Jim Reed, who is an even tougher bulldog than me.” In three weeks, “No Angel” became a bestseller. “Housewives, school teachers, mechanics,

tradesmen, blue collar workers flooded me with messages saying that they were able to relate to portions of my story and asked for more,” Dobyns said, surprised that the book became successful even though it wasn’t a hero’s story. Writing the book had been very therapeutic for him, but it taught him a lot of things about himself he didn’t like. “I am very stubborn. I am selfish. I battle with depression. I have a short attention span, which leads to impatience,” Dobyns said. That’s why he said “Catching Hell” and “No Angel” aren’t hero stories. He doesn’t like to be called a hero, believing that he failed more than he set out to achieve. As a former football player, as an agent, as an author, a husband and a father — he said he often feels he has fallen short. “Many times, throughout those stories, I was not very likeable,” Dobyns said, but everything he’s written is fact. “I did not want to write an ‘I-Love-Me’ story. I wanted to write truthful stories and allow the reader to decide on their own how they feel about me.” Instead of his career in the agency, Dobyns said his greatest achievement is his children. “They far exceed anything else I ever or could accomplish. Any legacy I leave will be lived out through them,” Dobyns said. He mentioned that his children’s greatest qualities

might have actually come from his wife. “She has instilled that toughness in them, probably more than I have,” Dobyns said. Dobyns said his family, or wife at least, doesn’t allow him to get too big a head. “My wife loves to tell me, ‘Hey, Mr. New York Times bestselling bigshot, take the garbage out and clean up after the dog,’” Dobyns said. In “Catching Hell,” Dobyns touches more on the violence and threats his family experienced, such as threats to gang rape his wife and kidnap his children. He also sheds light on the aftermath of the court case. Both books took him about five years to write, but there is still no telling when his third and last memoir will come out. But he promises it will, and he is already working on his draft — with a title that he doesn’t want to reveal just yet. “I have a process. Writing does not come easy for me. Once my outline is set — my skeleton — then the rest takes care of itself — hanging the meat on the bones to make it human,” he said. Dobyns is uncomfortable about promoting his books just the same as being called a hero. He views himself as a man who tried his best to stand up to bullies and protect his family, and wanted to share his experiences with others. “If I have written a good story, people will know.”

arning: Spoilers Ahead! I am a huge fan of the original “Jurassic Park”. It was one of the first movies that scared me half to death as a kid and become one of my favorite classics as an adult. Created by none other than Steven Spielberg himself over 25 years ago, “Jurassic Park” changed the game for the world of blockbuster cinema and special effects technology. My love for “Jurassic Park” set high expectations for the premiere of “Jurassic World” in 2015, and I was not disappointed. So naturally I was super excited to see the newest installment of the films, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Like me, thousands of other people rushed to the box office over the weekend to see the newest movie, racking up nearly $150 million in ticket sales throughout the country. However, I’m sad to report that although filmmakers made a decent effort, the movie was simply below average. While you’ll still experience a few decent scares and awe over the magnificence of the dinosaurs, the plot seems




Owen, along with Lockwood’s granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon), who believe that the animals should be released to sanctuary. They clearly never saw the original Jurassic Park movies. So, as the film rushes to a finish, rather than keep the dinosaurs in containment and allow them to die (due to a toxic gas leak), they release the dinosaurs onto the streets of California. The whole movie I was really just pondering the stupidity of man. I, like many other people, have a deep love and affection for animals and would never wish for their extinction or their harm, but in the words of Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), “these creatures were here before us. And if we’re not careful... they’re going to be here after. Life cannot be contained. Life breaks free. Life... finds a way.” We’re not talking about puppies here, but rather dinosaues that were literally bred to kill and survive. Regardless of how many times Blue comes to the rescue or we see a touching scene showcasing the beautiful relationship between man and dinosaur, I will never think this is a good idea. The point of the movie was to illustrate the destruction of man and the carelessness of humanity with access to great power, but largely overcomplicated the more important issue, which is that dinosaurs should never have had a place in modern society. — Jasmine’s favorite dinosaur is a brachiosaurus. She recieved a fake “dinosaur egg” when she was 7 years old and stil refuses to believe that it’s not real.

more complicated now and the lines between who the good and bad guys are is continuously blurred. The new movie is set three years after Jurassic World was closed and the island abandoned, only now there’s a giant, murderous volcano that’s about to erupt and take out the remaining dinosaurs (again). Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), who’s now a dinosaur-rights activist, takes on the challenge of saving these animals before the volcano erupts after she is recruited by Eli Millis (Rafe Spall). Millis is the assistant to Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), who happens to also be the former partner of John Hammond, the creator of the original Jurassic Park. Claire convinces Owen (Chris Pratt) to join her and he eventually agrees because he wants to save Blue, a velociraptor that he’s trained since she was a baby. Plot twist: Millis turns out to be one of the bad guys and everyone in the audience pretended like they didn’t know it was coming. So, in short, the island volcano erupts. After trying to kill Claire, Owen and their new sidekicks, paleoveterinarian Zia (Daniella Pineda) and systems analyst Franklin (Justice Webb), the bad guys take some of the dinosaurs off the island and transport them to a mansion in Northern California (great idea) where they attempt to sell them off as weapons. Also, believe it or not, they used their gene splicing capabilities to create (you guessed it) a new, even more powerful and violent dinosaur. On the other end of the spectrum, you have Claire and

Longtime UA employee says farewell Melissa Vito, senior vice president of Student Affairs, Enrollment Management and Strategic Initiatives, leaves the university after over 30 years of service and influence as a university administrator BY JASMINE DEMERS @JasmineADemers

Melissa Vito, a Tucson native, UA alum and nationally recognized leader in student affairs and university administration, recently announced her decision to leave the University of Arizona, effective July 1. The Office of the Provost hosted a party in her honor on Saturday, June 23 at The Rialto Theatre in Tucson, where members of the UA community and friends were invited to celebrate her impact on the university. “Thanks Melissa for your leadership, always infusing us with an entrepreneurial spirit and steady hand. You’ve inspired us all to constantly improve and change,” Todd Millay, director of Arizona Student Unions, said in a message to Vito.

team members … when you have a vision you need everyone else to kind of help shape it and make it come to life,” Vito said. Within her many roles on campus, Vito has been a key leader in the development of the university, according to her colleagues. She’s taken on projects such as the construction of the bookstore and student union, residential life, online education and now the student success district. “We finally were able to, with [the student union and bookstore] project, build out space for students,” Vito said. “We didn’t really have a good leadership and student involvement area. Student government was really crowded, and just knowing that we were actually able to meet those needs was great.” When asked about why she decided to leave the university, Vito simply said it was time. “I had an opportunity to leave in 2007, I had an opportunity to leave in 2008 and I had an opportunity to leave in 2013. In each of those times, it just wasn’t quite right … It was more appealing to stay then to go. But I’ve known that at some point, there would be that time that I would decide to go, and this was that time. I feel like we have hit a lot of our goals. The team is terrific. You want to leave while people still like you,” she said. Vito said she plans to stay close to the university to see some of her newest projects through. She plans to continue working in the realm of education, using her entrepreneurial skills to take her on a new journey. “I’m entrepreneurial in my heart, and I’ve had some friends who are in different business and we’ve talked over the years. I will likely do some work with them, probably do some consulting … to be determined. I’m trying to figure it all out right now,” she said. “I’m excited to be able to influence things in a different way.”

Vito, the current senior vice president for Student Affairs, Enrollment Management and Strategic Initiatives, has been at UA since the 1970’s when she received her bachelor’s degree in journalism and english. After graduating, she then began working at the university professionally, creating promotional materials for the Office of Financial Aid. After getting her master’s in higher education administration, Vito continued to move forward at the university, taking on a variety of roles, including head of orientation, student activities and Dean of Students. By 2007, Vito graduated with a doctorate in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University and became the Vice President for Student Affairs in the same year. She was promoted to her current role in early 2013. “What I’ve really appreciated is that my roles on campus have given me an opportunity to influence. I’ve been fortunate enough to have awesome

ARIZONA’S ALLONZO TRIER 35 lays in the ball past Colorado’s George King (24) and Lucas Siewert (23) in the second half of the Colorado-Arizona Quarterfinal game at the 2018 Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday, March 8 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Trier had 22 points and three assists in the game.


While Thursday night was huge for Arizona’s Deandre Ayton, who became the first Wildcat to be selected first overall in the NBA draft, fan excitement might have been tempered by the fact Rawle Alkins, Allonzo Trier and Dusan Ristic went undrafted. Alkins and Trier join a growing list of players (including Brandon Ashley, Kobi Simmons and Chance Comanche) who have left Arizona early under Sean Miller to enter the NBA Draft — only to end up not being picked during the 60-selection modern day circus. Trier signed a “two-way” contract with the New York Knicks, which will allow him to play for New York’s D-League affiliate team and be available for callup to the Knicks without any contract renegotiations should that call-up occur. Dusan Ristic will join the Phoenix Suns for their Summer League festivities, while Rawle Alkins will be playing for the Toronto Raptors in Las Vegas next month, according to multiple reports. The early jump from college ball has served some well. Kobi Simmons played 32 games with the Memphis Grizzlies during his rookie season this past year. Chance Comanche also found a defined role on the Memphis Grizzlies’ D-League affiliate squad and will look to find his way onto the 15-man roster this next year.

These two players, both younger than 22, still have time and opportunity to carve out careers in the NBA. On the flip side, Brandon Ashley never quite recovered from the devastating broken foot he suffered against Cal during his sophomore season – a season that saw Arizona’s Final Four hopes go down in a crumbling heap of despair. Injuries were also a factor for early draft entrants Alkins and Trier. With both players having a track record of nagging issues, they might be afforded fewer opportunities to impress while they sit on the bench healing. These little opportunities matter at the next level, especially when everybody you are competing against is vying for one roster spot. There is no wiggle room, and injuries can derail careers, as evidenced by Ashley. Trier will have a shot to show what he can do during the upcoming Summer League in Las Vegas. While Alkins signing with a club is imminent, Ristic finding a club long-term seems like a long shot at this point. The Summer League rosters mostly consist of young players trying to impress scouts and GMs who will be keeping close watch on players who they want filling out their rosters. Las Vegas has been good to Trier and Alkins in the past; it remains to be seen if good fortune continues as they look to make the transition to professional basketball.

Humanities dean reveals ‘secret sauce’ to UA collaboration College of Humanities Dean Alain-Philippe Durand is at the center of one of UA’s most popular colleges. With the development of a hip-hop-centric minor in 2012 and the roll-out for a new bachelor’s degree in humanities this fall, find out how one of the UA’s most popular deans plans to aid in the pursuit of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ BY NAGISA TSUKADA @DailyWildcat

Tell me about your secret sauce for sandwiches. Mayonnaise? Good. Ketchup? Yummy. But they taste even better when you stir them together, don’t they? How about adding a little mustard and garlic? The more ingredients you have, the more complex taste you get. So it is with human personalities, according to Alain-Philippe Durand. Durand has been dean of the College of Humanities since 2016. He has been a professor of French and Italian for decades. He has a multicultural background, and his co-workers say they love his creative personality. Durand was born in France. He was interested in studying abroad, so he left his country to study in the U.S. as an undergraduate student in literature. After he graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999 with a Ph.D., he worked as a professor at the University of Rhode Island, teaching French literature and film media. He moved to Tucson and the University of Arizona in 2010 as the Director of the School of International Languages, Literatures and Cultures. Ken McAllister, the associate dean of the College of Humanities, remembers when Durand was hired. “He was an easy choice,” McAllister said. “He is charismatic. He actually enjoys thinking about numbers and strategies and tactics. That’s exactly the kind of person you want leading an organization.” Their choice was right: Durand led the SILLC with charisma. One episode that describes his leadership involved a new hip-hop minor in 2012. The UA’s minor in hip-hop studies is the first interdisciplinary degree about rap music in the U.S. Durand persuaded people to create this academically unconventional degree two years after he came to the UA. Now, two years after becoming dean of the College of Humanities, he has supported the creation of a new interdisciplinary degree once again. This new degree, a bachelor’s in applied humanities, begins this fall semester. Students will take one elective class in the College of Humanities and choose one professional core from Business Administration, Fashion Studies, Public Health and Spatial Organization and Design Thinking taught in different colleges in the UA. “This new degree, to me, is one sort of hallmark

of our dean,” the Vice Dean of the College of Humanities, Kimberly Jones, said. “I think one really great thing about dean Durand is his willingness to seek out cross-college collaborations — and his interest in really taking humanities in a new direction for the 21st Century. Connecting with other fields and see what humanities has to offer to other fields.” Durand has established the new Department of Public and Applied Humanities and negotiated with other deans of the Eller College of Management, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Public Health and College of Architecture for the new degree. His eagerness to create new degrees comes from his belief in the importance of humanities and interdisciplinary studies. “The skills that we teach in the humanities are important in every discipline and every career,” Durand said. “You cannot study any topic on campus without studying the humanities because in the humanities, we teach skills like critical thinking, communication, adaptability, empathy, collaboration, leadership, intercultural competence, problem solving — all these skills are important regardless of what you study.” He also believes that humanities are important for technological improvement, called the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” because even though it is about technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence, those revolutions are led by humans, not by robots. “Let’s say you work for Apple. They’re gonna say, ‘We’re very successful with iWatch right now. We need to create a new product. What other ideas do you have?’ If somebody has studied extensively humanities and arts, they would have the creativity COURTESY ALAINPHILIPPE DURAND or capacity extended,” Durand said. “There is a better ALAINPHILIPPE DURAND IS a Dean in the College of Humanities potential to come up with new ideas.” and he is currently helping President Robbins with his goals around the A recent example of Durand’s initiative was the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” month-long series of events held last October during the Tucson Humanities Festival.
