College of Fine Arts welcomes new dean

Andrew Schultz, an internationally renowned and award-winning scholar, was named the new dean of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Arizona. As of August 1, UA will be looking to further its success in fine arts with the help of Shultz. Shultz has set the bar high for higher education with his numerous leadership positions at Penn State, including associate dean, national leader in the Alliance for the Arts and serving as the current vice-president of external relations in the College Arts Association. Schulz has received numerous awards and fellowships, including a 12-month fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a five-year Faculty Excellence Award from the University of Oregon in recognition of innovative scholarship. “I think that fine arts has a major role in the UA campus strategic plan that we are now developing,” said Jeff Goldberg, acting provost at UA. “[I’m] looking forward to Dr. Schultz bringing the college together to develop a plan to move forward and then working with him and his team to execute that plan.” Schultz will oversee the entire Fine Arts program consisting of the School of Art, the School of Dance, the Fred Fox School of Music and the School of Theatre, Film and Television. — Monica Baricevic

Compost Cats use grant to give back

University of Arizona’s Compost Cats, a student-run campus organization that turns food waste into compostable material, received the North American Development Bank grant to divert compostable materials from local landfills. The grant of $91, 519 will allow the organization to expand into Santa Cruz County to turn food waste into a resource that will teach students job skills, put food on people’s tables and support local agriculture. Compost Cats is expanding because the more they learned about food waste, the more they wanted to do, said Chet Phillips, UA Compost Cats project director in an article in The Arizona Daily Star. The UA Cooperative Extension’s new center will compost about 3,000 tons of produce each year, according to a press release by the EPA on June 13. That compost will be used on farms, gardens, and rangelands, benefiting the environment and advancing agricultural production across the region. The center will be operated by UA’s “Compost Cats,” who will train and employ local students from Rio Rico High School, Santa Cruz County Community College and UA South students. — Pascal Albright

Straws suck. Kudos to d n Starbucks for changing

me!

The Daily Wildcat • 3

EDITORIAL | ENVIRONMENT

BY DAILY WILDCAT OPINIONS BOARD @DailyWildcat

T

he plastic straw, an accessory for frosty summer drinks, sweet sodas and the ever-enjoyable iced coffee, has been falling out of popularity in recent years, faced with a growing repercussion over its effect on the environment. Starbucks, the popular coffee chain, announced Monday, July 9, that it would stop using disposable plastic straws by 2020. With our present population faced with an increasing need to clean up our oceans from oil spills, landfill overflows and endless plastics, it was only a matter of time before a major chain stepped up and announced that they would make a change for the future of the environment. Most people are aware that plastic cannot degrade back into the environment, but how much is really in our oceans? Although it is difficult to identify exactly how much plastic is in the ocean, due to micro-particles and the amount that has sunk to the bottom, the Ocean Conservancy estimates that eight million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans each year — adding to the estimated 150 million metric tons currently circulating our oceans. That’s the equivalent to a garbage truck dumping plastic into the ocean every minute. According to a report by Swiss nonprofit World Economic Forum, by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Starbucks’ elimination of plastic straws will result in a reduction of more than one billion straws a year, which is a good thing for our oceans and ourselves. A big coffee chain eliminating the use of straws will hopefully lead to more chains following in those footsteps, but this does not mean that there will be lidless cups going around — instead, this leads to new innovations like the Starbucks cold cup straw-less lids or in the case of Frappuccinos, biodegradable paper straws. Chains and coffee shops all around already offer you discounts if you bring your own cup, eliminating the use of a plastic one, and companies like Simply Straws sell reusable metal, hard plastic and glass straws, which allows individuals to help the environment,

but now hopefully more major companies will choose to respond. “Starbucks is the biggest company to make the environmentally friendly move and it’s expected that more companies will follow its lead and offer their own eco-friendly alternatives to plastic straws,” wrote Gina Martinez in Time Magazine Monday. This same month, Seattle, the headquarters of Starbucks, became one of the first major cities in the U.S. to ban single-use plastic straws. Several cities in Florida and California have banned or partially banned the straws and state officials in California are considering a measure that would prevent restaurants from handing out plastic straws unless requested by a customer. There have been arguments that this elimination leads to issues with people who rely on straws due to an inability to pick up the cup or other disabilities, but the company is set to take those factors into consideration with the biodegradable paper straws. Other companies that focus on the production of plastic have also brought up concerns saying that “straws are not to blame; the problem is litter.” Starbucks, however, said it feels that the decision to eliminate plastic straws will be good for the company from both an environmental and business standpoint. “By nature, the straw isn’t recyclable and the lid is, so we feel this decision is more sustainable and more socially responsible,” Chris Milne, director of packaging sourcing for Starbucks, said in a statement. So far, the new cold-cup-lids as straw replacement have debuted in more than 8,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada and will be in stores worldwide by 2020. Other companies should understand that they have a massive impact on the environment — now they have to make the choice between a positive and negative impact.

OPINION | MUSIC CULTURE

Listening to music creates timeless vibes OPINION

BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

M

usic has evolved rapidly in many ways, from its dawn to the present day. I’ve learned about this evolution in an online class on music history, specifically Rock n’ Roll. The class focused on both the consumption of music throughout time as well as how music has changed for certain age groups at different times. If you look around a college campus or even walk down the streets of a city, you will hear some sort of music, from radio in cars or in stores to coffee shop bands or street musicians to music played on phones or computers. A vibrant society cannot deny that music is part of its everyday culture. I have lived my life surrounded by music, from being around live instruments as a kid to listening to music in car trips or always playing it at home on the record, tape and CD player. After finishing this class, I learned several things, but most importantly I learned that our American culture is built upon expression, especially through music. According to Sarah Wilson and EJ Milne, who completed a study that showed how young people create belonging through music, “young people used music in different ways. Music was sometimes a source of identity, music was also used to create a comfortable, safe place to cheer themselves up, as a source of inspiration and motivation.” For most young people, living in a busy environment allows for creative freedom and expression, and that

How people listen to music has evolved over time, leaving generations of young people exploring new and old ways of hearing the same songs

can lead to exploration in musical taste that will build personality. I, for one, love music from the late 1970s and 80s, as well as most indie music. Listen to “The First Cut Is the Deepest” by Cat Stevens or “Der Kommissar” by After the Fire or “Lake Michigan” by Rogue Wave. Those are all great examples of music I listen to. Now as a young adult in my early 20s, I also listen to music on several platforms. I love digital music just because that sound is so clear and you can get virtually any song at your fingertips. But I also love retro sound and have a complete library of cassette tapes as well as vinyl records. Those are great for listening to any music from the 1960s to the early 90s, before CDs made it big then disappeared. One of my favorite records ever is “Honkey Château” by Elton John, produced in 1972 by Dick James Music Limited and MCA Records, Inc. As you take the vinyl out of its sleeve and set it on your turntable and the needle drops, you start by hearing silence, then the piano strikes along with the boom of the drums and the singing starts. If you listen with headphones, you hear that the track was produced as a double with an overlay of smooth soul mixed with jazz and rock. It is one of my favorite records because it is not only good music but it also shows you history with the vinyl, the double track overlay, the smell of the old sleeve and the press of the music on the spinning record. Vinyl is meant to be listened to as a time-piece, for the feeling of being transported into the times when it was the way to listen. At parties you listened to whole albums — even if they included some weird songs — and you would visit record shops, buy them new and enjoy what they have to offer at home. Cassette’s came along and gave music portability, and with time came CDs and digital music, which also moved the way people listen to music away from buying records. Ironically vinyl was, and still is,

produced with higher cost. Music is very important in all cultures, especially with young people (no matter the cost, people will pay or find ways to hear it) and however you listen to it shows its importance in everyday life. According to Viviane Freitas, a popular blogger from Brazil, “even if the person doesn’t know anything about music theory or play an instrument, there will always be some lyrics or melody that will stick in their head enough to make them hum the tune.” She explained the importance of music culture to young adults and went on to state that young people have plenty of access to it through popular culture, communities, parties, radio and the internet. Because of this, they view growing up from the perspective of musical influence. “We can see that everyone likes music and it can make a big difference in our everyday lives,” Freitas wrote. “It can provide great moments with friends, in a romance, or in a moment of great emotion.” I think that being aware of music is a great thing. Having musical abilities and access to music and a variety of ways of listening to it can spark a more creative atmosphere in a classroom, workspace and in human interactions. I could continue on about how one should and/or should not listen to music, but all I can say is take time to listen to the words or just “Pump up the Jam.” As the Doobie Brothers put it in their second album from 1972, “Oh, we got to let the music play, What the people need is a way to make ‘em smile, It ain’t so hard to do if you know how, Gotta get a message, Get it on through, Oh now mama, don’t you ask me why, Whoa listen to the music … All the time.” — Pascal Albright owns a plethora of vinyl records, cassette tapes, CDs and digital music. He enjoys the tunes on his commutes to school and work.

A CROSBY VINYL RECORD player spins Elton John’s 1972 album Honkey Chateau which features songs like “Honkey Cat”, “I Think I’m Gunna Kill Myself”, “Salvation” and “Rocket Man (I Think It’s Gunna Be a Long Long Time).” Vinyl records are one of many ways to listen to music today.

Mars Science Labratory member Gordon W. Downs The Mars Science Labratory is a robotic probe sent by NASA to the red planet in November 2011. Since then, it has collected information on data ranging from Mars’ habitibility to the planet’s climate and geology. Downs is part of a team of researchers from around the world working on the NASA Curiosity Rover Mission to determine if Mars ever supported microbial life and whether Mars was, or could have been, habitable BY NAGISA TSUKADA @DailyWildcat

The Mars Science Laboratory Team, led by NASA, researches the surface of Mars to figure out if there is any potential habitat for life in the present or past. The University of Arizona has contributed to the project with eight researchers and students working on the team. Gordon W. Downs is one of those team members, and the only undergraduate student on the team. Daily Wildcat reporter Nagisa Tsukada talked with Downs about his work with the MSL and his future career. This interview was edited for length and clarity. Daily Wildcat: How did you get on the Mars Science Laboratory Team? Gordon W. Downs: It started with helping a PhD student in geoscience. I was helping her with some coding and math for a project she was working on. And she was on the team. I developed software for her to help her research what she was doing and eventually I developed the software to the point that it was pretty useful, and others on the team wanted me to use it for the new data as it was coming out. And the Martian data is classified for a little while to give the people on the team the opportunity to publish about it before the public has the opportunity to publish about it. So, I was added to the team so I could analyze and classify data. DW: Can you provide more detail about the software? GD: It’s analyzing powder X-ray diffraction data, which is a

type of data that the CheMin (Chemistry and Mineralogy) instrument takes. In particular, what my software aims to do is analyze the amorphous. There are pretty much two types of material in the Martian soil. How the instrument works is it takes the sample of Mars and does the x-ray diffraction on that. There are two main types: crystalline and amorphous, and it is well understood how to analyze the crystalline components. But, right now, for the amorphous components, they just pretty much publish how much of the soil is amorphous, but they don’t say what’s in the amorphous part. The new thing my software is doing is trying to characterize what makes up that amorphous material. DW: Why did you decide to develop the software? GD: I’ve always been interested in NASA, space science, and it was the opportunity to work with people who were working at NASA. So, it was just like I was personally interested in that. And it turns out that the things I’m learning are widely applicable to very much all of science because I’m developing a mathematic model. DW: Why did you choose the UA? GD: I’m from Tucson; I went to high school here. And I think the main reason I came was because of the couple of generous scholarships that were offered to me by like Brown Foundation. I was hoping take this opportunity and publicly thank them.

COURTESY JOHN DE DIOS | UA NEWS

GORDON DOWNS IS THE only undergraduate at the UA assigned by NASA as a Mars Science Laboratory Science Team Collaborator.

DW: What is your major? GD: I’m in electrical and computer engineering and math. DW: When and why did you choose your major? GD: I chose in the end of the freshman year. I had a really hard time choosing my major because there were so many things I wanted to do.

But eventually I decided I wanted to work in cuttingedge tech and I figured it’s easy [through] math [to] get in that field. They are both broad enough that I can choose later what to specialize. I have always known I wanted to do math, but what I was trying to decide was what other majors would be.

DW: What do you hope for your career? GD: I’m really interested in robotics and AI [Artificial Intelligence]. I know it’s not really related to what I am doing right now. I hope to go to grad school for AI and then maybe do startups. So I’m doing the McGuire Program [at Eller College of Management] this upcoming year.

UA fraternity suspended, five others under investigation BY JASMINE DEMERS @JasmineADemers

Sigma Alpha Epsilon, a University of Arizona fraternity, was suspended from campus after an investigation by its national headquarters found it was in violation of health and safety policies. The fraternity’s suspension was announced at the end of June by the Dean of Students Office after being notified by Sigma Alpha Epsilon headquarters that the chapter had been disbanded. “We have tremendous respect for a fraternal organization that holds its members accountable for their actions,” said Kendal Washington White, UA dean of students, in a news release. “Sigma Alpha Epsilon informed us of the reasons for taking such serious action and we fully support that decision.” When asked about which health and safety violations were involved, Washington White said the UA was allegedly unaware of the specific details. “The National Office of SAE did not provide us with any additional information other than health and safety violations of their organization’s conduct policy,” she said.

The Daily Wildcat sent several requests to Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national headquarters but did not receive a response. According to Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national website, the UA chapter of the fraternity was specifically in violation of “Minerva’s Shield,” the organization’s rules for health and safety, which covers a variety of topics such as alcohol, drugs, guns, hazing and sexual assault. According to the 2017-2018 Judicial Report on the UA Greek Life website, Sigma Alpha Epsilon was also under investigation by the Greek Standards Board in 2017. They were in violation of several code of conduct policies, including alcohol consumption and “endangering, threatening or causing physical harm to any member of the university community or to oneself.” As a consequence of the investigation, Sigma Alpha Epsilon was required to pay a fine, update their risk management policies and provide the Greek Standard board a “written reflection on why the chapter felt it was okay to openly serve and provide alcohol to minors and why they now know that it is wrong.” There are currently several other fraternities, including Alpha Epsilon Pi, Kappa Sigma, Alpha Kappa Lambda, Theta Delta Chi and Beta Theta Pi that are, or were recently, under

investigation for potential code of conduct violations. Both Alpha Epsilon Pi and Kappa Sigma were placed on “Interim Loss of Recognition” status and are prohibited from participating in any organizational activities

until the investigation has concluded. Theta Delta Chi was suspended from events with alcohol and lost campus privileges, Alpha Kappa Lambda was suspended from events with alcohol and Beta Theta Pi is on interim full activities suspension.

uofamystery.org, which alleges that a young female student hung herself from the pipes of the building in 1919. Another story alleges that two rival dance-hall girls, Diamond Lil and Two Tooth Gertie, got into a bloody altercation one night in the 1860s. The women fought on the land of a Spanish ranch, which now belongs to the UA. After von KleinSmid’s encounter, Maricopa Hall remained vacant for quite some time before it was slowly turned into classroom space. It currently serves as a UA residence hall. The UA’s 14th president, Richard Anderson Harvill, resided at 85 Calle Encanto until he retired in 1971. Built in 1953, the lot was purchased by UA in 1948 and cost $61,824 to build, according to UA Communications. It was sold for $65,000 in 1972. In 1991, the UA Foundation purchased a home at 100 N. Camino Espanol, which served as the residence of UA’s 17th president, Manuel Trinidad Pacheco.

The University of Arizona recently purchased a $1.3 million home, located just east of campus, to serve as the residence of President Dr. Robert Robbins after approval by the Arizona Board of Regents. According to the Office of University Communications, the UA actually has a long history of presidential homes, some of which are the source of mysterious folklore. Theodore B. Comstock, the university’s first appointed president from 1894 to 1895, built the very first presidential home at the current site of Gila Hall located on Second Street and Park Avenue. When the home was built in 1894, it cost the university $5,499. It was renovated in 1923, and became the residence of several other UA presidents, ending with Homer LeRoy Shantz, the 10th university president, in 1936, according to UA

Communications. The home was torn down in February 1937 to make way for a new student dormitory, Gila Hall. The sixth UA president, Arthur Herbert Wilde, designed Maricopa Hall in 1914, which was originally meant to serve as his private mansion. Wilde unfortunately retired early due to health conditions before building began. The university began construction on Maricopa Hall in June 1918, which cost $174,666. A third story was added to the building in 1921, costing an additional $45,000. Rufus Bernard von KleinSmid, the seventh university president, was allegedly supposed to reside in Maricopa Hall during his tenure, which started in 1914. However, according to UA Communications, “he adamantly refused to ever set foot in the mansion again after a mysterious experience while walking by the house late one night after a meeting.” Some say this story is connected to the “Haunting of Maricopa Hall,” according to

Peter Likins, UA’s 18th president, also lived in the home at 100 N. Camino Espanol for a portion of his term. The UA Foundation sold the home to the University of Arizona for $470,000 in 1998. Likins purchased a new residence in 2001 and the home was sold again for $780,000 in 2001. The newest presidential home, the current residence of President Robbins, was originally purchased by the UA Foundation at the university’s request. With approval from the Arizona Board of Regents, the university will now buy the home from the UA Foundation, along with its furnishings. Originally built in 1936, the house is 3,756 square feet and has four bedrooms, three baths, a pool and a separate office and gym. While the home is being used as a personal residence by Robbins and his family, it will also be used to host a variety of meetings and events for UA employees, community members and visitors.

OPINION | STUDY ABROAD

Diving into Russian culture has its challenges COLUMNIST TONI MARCHEVA @DailyWildcat

H

ello from Mother Russia! I’m spending my summer in Moscow on a University of Arizona study abroad program and will be giving you updates — kind of like a travel blog, but worse (or better?), because it’s less bloggy. Moscow is consistently beautiful throughout and I’ve already had the chance to see St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin and Red Square. However, my favorite things so far have been trying to accomplish daily life tasks trapped behind the language and culture barrier. When I signed the papers to come to Russia, I had about ten poorly pronounced Russian words under my belt. When I landed, I had scarcely any more. Yet, I felt like I had to be here. I’m a first-generation Russian-Bulgarian American and I don’t know either of my native languages. Apparently, if a child stops speaking his or her native language before the age of nine, the brain actually purges the information. According to a French study, these people have little advantage over a first-time non-native speaker in learning their native language. When I was younger, I didn’t really care that I didn’t know any Russian. However, it began to bother me that I couldn’t communicate verbally with anybody in my biological family other than my mother and brother. When my babushka visited the United States, I didn’t even know how to thank her for the delicious foods she made for me. I am visiting Moscow through the Russian Language Program offered by the UA. I came in with quite unrealistic

expectations. I thought if I worked really hard, I would be able to speak decently well after two months. I got stuck in a little crisis when I realized everyone else was right: The Russian language is hard. So hard, I’m not sure it’s even meant to be learned as a foreign language. For example, did you know that there are no rules for stresses on words? A language learner almost has to hear every word to learn how it sounds, and then memorize the stress. If the stress is wrong, the word might not even make sense. And oh, the torment I must endure when I see three-year-old kids who have a better command of the language than I probably ever will. Basically, I got hit with one of the biggest reality checks of my life in this first week. After that week, I realized that I needed to lower my expectations of myself and find the small successes I have every day. I can learn from every mistake and laugh about them later. It’s the small interactions that teach me the most to overcome this barrier. My first time at a grocery store was an adventure. I had to flip through my dictionary to find out which of the rectangular packages was butter. I threw a yogurt in my basket without consulting my dictionary and I ended up with strawberry flavored cottage cheese. Though I was not disappointed, I really annoyed the checkout lady. After several repetitions, I figured out she asked me if I wanted a bag. I said ‘yes,’ but I didn’t know I was supposed to bag my own food until she started throwing someone else’s purchases on top of mine. I frantically sorted through the groceries, shoving mine in my bag. I also learned I was supposed to take my basket after she threw it at me. That’s okay. That’s what learning is all about. My mom warned me several times not to look too touristy or I’ll be conned. Thankfully, that’s only happened once so

far, and it was quite benign. A cute older woman at a fruit market offered me the most delicious looking strawberry I’ve ever seen. Of course, I was going to sample it. She asked me a question, which I ignorantly assumed was ‘is it good?,’ so I responded affirmatively. I actually agreed to buy the largest box of strawberries I’ve ever seen. I asked ‘how much’ and every time I needed her to repeat it, she raised the price (which I only realized later). I ended up paying almost double the regular price. I hadn’t even stepped into the market yet. I went wrong on so many levels — I can’t even blame the woman. In interactions with people, I usually have to say, in Russian, “I can’t speak

Russian.” Interestingly, many don’t believe me and continue to talk to me. Despite the many awkward endings, three times out of thirteen, or so, I’ve had moderate success. I held a place in line for one woman, I told another she was not approaching an exit, and I told another I wasn’t getting off the metro. I’ll take that record for my first week. Here in Russia, I feel more American than I ever have in my life — but I am filled with motivation to improve my abilities and improve my small interactions. We’ll see how this goes! — Toni Marcheva is a junior honors student majoring in philosophy, politics, economics and law.

AYTON AND BAGELY III SHARE VEGAS SPOTLIGHT

The top two picks in the NBA Draft clashed in summer league, showcasing their elite skills and unique friendship BY ALEC WHITE @AlecWhite_UA

Ayton showcased a few highlight-reel dunks and Bagley III utilized his athleticism for a wide variety of scoring moves. “It was exciting, it was fun. [Ayton] is a great player. You know it’s always good to go against him, especially somebody that I played with before,” Bagley III said. “On the court, we obviously played against each other and it’s pretty much no friends. But off the court, he’s always gonna be my guy.” The night prior was an uneven debut for the Sun’s seven-footer. Phoenix struggled to get Ayon involved as he saw a double-team most of the night and only finished with 10 points. “It took him a little while to come out of his shell, but I think he’s finally starting to realize that nobody can guard him,” Suns forward Josh Jackson said. “Teams have to bring two defenders. No one person can guard him.” For Bagley III, he still carries the chip on his

LAS VEGAS — The Thomas & Mack Center stood still in the first quarter when Deandre Ayton got the ball in the post for the first time against Marvin Bagley III and started backing him down towards the rim.

The shot rimmed in and out and a summer league basketball game resumed between the Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings.

LOS ANGELES LAKERS SUMMER league head coach Miles Simon claps on the sidelines during a Summer League game against the Philadelphia 76ers on July 7 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Simons won the Final Four MVP for Arizona in 1997.

SIMON GAINS COACHING INSIGHT

BY DAVID SKINNER @DavidwSkinner_

LAS VEGAS — The Lute Olson coaching tree just grew one branch larger this summer, as Miles Simon made his fourth official coaching appearance for the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night in Las Vegas. The Lakers took part in the California Classic Summer League mini-camp earlier this month, allowing Arizona’s 1997 Final Four MVP to get his feet wet before taking on all comers in Las Vegas where every NBA team is out to capture the Summer League championship. That’s the same championship the Lakers won last summer, coached by fellow Arizona Wildcat alumnus and current New York Knicks assistant coach Jud Buechler. With the Thomas & Mack Center being flooded with NBA executives and influential front office suits, Simon’s opportunity to show the rest of the league that he has the ability to not only lead a group of talented young professionals, but also to draw up successful plays that he will be able to translate to regular season games. In a league that already has multiple former decorated Arizona basketball

players leading their teams to success, such Steve Kerr and Luke Walton, Simon would be a welcome addition to the growing head coaching fraternity that seems to be forming with Lute Olson’s former players. With Thomas & Mack Center taking the place of Staples Center East, the Lakers had no problem with the Philadelphia 76ers as they got off on the right foot, starting their Las Vegas portion of Summer League off right where they left off last summer: with another routine win for the purple and gold. Through his first couple of games, the lessons that Simon has learned have been abundant, to say the least. “All of the lessons are probably too much to say in this short setting, but one: managing everything that goes along, from the staff, to the players, to picking what time the bus is picking us up,” Simon said. “Making sure my ATO’s (after time out plays) are right, and getting my substitution patterns right, there is a lot that goes into it. It’s truly been a great experience and probably the best learning experience of my coaching career so far.” Armed with the lessons he learns on a day-to-day basis, the former Wildcat isn’t far from making his temporary gig a permanent one.

SPORTS | FOOTBALL RECRUITING

SIMON ASHER | THE DAILY WILDCAT

ARIZONA HEAD FOOTBALL COACH Kevin Sumlin and his assistant coaches talk during the UA football team warm up before the spring football game on April 7, at Arizona Stadium.

Sumlin’s Texas pipeline is starting to flow BY ROB KLEIFIELD @RobKleifield

As summer workouts and player-run practices occupy Arizona Stadium, head coach Kevin Sumlin and staff have been hitting the recruiting trail, positioning themselves for future success. Since the end of spring practices, the Wildcats 2019 recruiting class has risen in national rankings, aided by the recent commitment from four-star Texas quarterback Grant Gunnell. On June 14 — just two days after Dallas cornerback Logan Wilson de-committed — homegrown offensive lineman Jordan Morgan pledged his allegiance to the Wildcats, increasing the team’s total number of commits back to four. At the end of June, Arizona hosted a slew of prospective recruits and in return received verbal commitments from a trio of defensive standouts. Initiating the Wildcats recruiting haul over the weekend was another Lone Star state native, linebacker Derrion Clark. Fellow Texan, defensive tackle Kane Bradford, followed Clark’s commitment after an impressive official visit. Both players hail from Dallas. Arizona also received word from the West Coast that three-star outside linebacker Kwabena Watson was also affirming his desire to play in the desert. Watson is Sumlin’s first commit from California. The most noticeable difference between Sumlin’s recruiting tactics thus far versus former coach Rich Rodriguez is his willingness to go after the talent in Texas. It certainly helps that Sumlin spent the previous decade in the Lone Star State, building and developing relationships with players, coaches and families of surrounding high schools, but the carry-over would be nearly nonexistent unless Sumlin goes out of his way to maintain such relationships. With the halfway mark of summer quickly approaching, let’s take a closer look at what the Wildcats’ most recent verbal commits bring to the table:

JORDAN MORGAN — Offensive Lineman 6’5, 270lbs. / Marana HS (Marana, Arizona) The first thing you notice about Morgan’s film is his athleticism while pass blocking. He has quick feet and does a good job of utilizing his hands and winning early in the down. He’ll need to add strength and develop a mean streak as a run blocker if he wants to blossom in Arizona’s offense, but all of the natural skills are there to work with. DERRION CLARK — Linebacker 6’0, 215lbs. / South Oak Cliff HS (Dallas, Texas) On paper Clark appears a bit undersized, so it’s only natural to assume he’ll end up playing inside linebacker. However, his tape shows something else. Whether it is stacked outside, lined up with his hand in the dirt on the edge or even inside the tackles in the trenches, Clark has demonstrated an ability to make plays from all three positions. He’s an aggressive tackler, with just enough lateral quickness and closing speed to make up for his lack of size and strength. KANE BRADFORD — Defensive Tackle 6’6 270lbs. / Skyline HS (Dallas, Texas) Bradford doesn’t have a whole lot of film to evaluate, but what is available points to two things — size and speed. A monstrous figure in the middle, Bradford towers over most of his competition. Yet he does a decent job of keeping his pad-level down and playing with proper leverage. Bradford flashes linebacker-esque speed when chasing after the quarterback, but he will need to add to his array of pass-rush moves. KWABENA WATSON — Outside Linebacker 6’3 205lbs. / Edison HS (Fresno, California) Watson seems to specialize in one area – getting after the quarterback. He has a long and lean frame which is suitable for success on the field. He boasts a solid collection of pass-rush moves and does a good job of using his hands to defeat the opposition. However, he also has a tendency of getting off the ball late. Improving his upper and lower body strength, while quickening his initial burst off the ball, could propel Watson to early playing time.

SCOTT M. KINGERY PLAYS for the Philadelphia Phillies in Major League Baseball. He formerly played baseball for the UA Wildcats.

Former ‘Cats shining on big league diamonds BY AMIT SYAL @ASyal21

The mid-summer classic for MLB is right around the corner, so now is an opportune time to check in on some former Arizona Wildcat baseball players and how they are faring in their journey to the big leagues. Here’s a look out how five familiar faces have fared in 2018. SCOTT KINGERY - 3B/2B Earlier this year in March, former Wildcat and current Philadelphia Phillies utility man, Kingery, signed a six-year contract worth a guaranteed $24 million, the largest guarantee for a player yet to make his major league debut. Kingery made his debut against the Atlanta Braves on March 30, 2018. This season, Kingery has four home-runs and 24 RBI. JOEY RICKARD - Outfielder Rickard, current outfielder for the Baltimore Orioles and former College World Series Champion for the Wildcats in 2012, has hit five home runs and has eight RBI halfway through his 2018 season. ROB REFSNYDER - 2B/OF/1B Current Tampa Bay Ray, Refsnyder was

recently designated for assignment after batting .167 after his 80 appearances at the plate this season. Refsnyder was Rickard’s former teammate at Arizona and garnered the College World Series Most Outstanding Player after winning the CWS in 2012. MARK MELANCON - Pitcher Current relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Melancon has only seen action in eleven games so far this season. He has posted an ERA of 2.61 and a total of eight strikeouts in the limited outings he has seen. Melancon has been playing with the Giants after signing a four-year, $62 million contract in December 2016. Melancon recently underwent surgery to alleviate his chronic exertional compartment syndrome in his right forearm. JOHNNY FIELD - OF Field, a current outfielder for the Tampa Bay Rays, made his MLB debut this season, joining Refsynder. Field was promoted to the major leagues in April 2018 and had the first hit of his career against the Phillies. This season, Field has played 54 games and has six homers and 14 RBI’s.

NEWS | TUCSON/CAMPUS UPDATE

Kiosk brings quick fix to pharmacy lines BY MARISSA HEFFERNAN @_mheffernan

If you hate standing in line to fill a prescription, then good news: MedAvail Technologies has deployed pharmacy kiosks in Tucson and Phoenix as a solution. These kiosks have all the functionality of a brick-and-mortar pharmacy, according to Seema Siddiqui, MedAvail’s director of pharmacy, and patients won’t lose face-to-face interaction with a pharmacist because the kiosks have a video chat function. “The machines are an extension of a home pharmacy, and it’s all controlled from the home pharmacy,” Siddiqui said. The way the kiosks work is simple: A person taps the start button that calls a pharmacist, who then comes up on a screen.

where prescriptions are written, where people work and where people live – it’s all about accessibility and a better patient experience. “Sometimes people don’t fill scripts right away, because they need to get back to work,” Lander said. “Now, you can fill them while you’re at work.” Maryam Fazel, University of Arizona assistant professor in the Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine, said the accessibility would make the kiosks key at places like behavioral health clinics and college campuses. “The accessibility is one thing I really liked, because I have kids in school and it can be hard for them to get to Campus Health to pick up prescriptions,” Fazel said. Lander said there’s also an app patients can use for even greater efficiency, and there’s the potential for over-the-counter medications to be dispensed from kiosks, too. While Fazel liked the idea of the machines, she said a point of clarification should be made. “You have to remind providers that they really need to have a designated pharmacist to run this,” Fazel said. “This is not about cutting pharmacy hours or pharmacists; this is about the patient experience, and this is really close to my heart.” Will Misloski, MedAvail chief marketing officer, said these kiosks are meant to make people’s lives easier in an area they don’t always think about. “Everyone has kind of accepted the current pharmacy experience, where you have to go there and wait in line, but that’s what we’re solving for,” Misloski said.

Summer sees uptick in bike crime BY VICTOR GARCIA @VicGarcia96

The University of Arizona is home to a large collection of unattended bicycles throughout the school year, all subject to being snagged away from their owners. Summer session is no exception. The university’s bike population creates an opportunity for people with ill intentions to snap a U-lock on a bike. Although U-locks are for the most part trustworthy in keeping bicycles safe, location and visibility are other factors to keep in mind.

In the past weeks, there has been a trend of bikes being stolen or vandalized for parts. Two instances of larceny were reported June 25 when two bikes were stolen despite their U-locks, according to Public Information Officer Cindy Spasoff. According to a University of Arizona Police Department report, one of the victims sent images to police of his damaged bicycle and an 8-inch cutting knife. According to UA Officer Rene Hernandez, bikes are an open opportunity to many people who often take them at night or if they are parked in secluded areas.

Some of the stolen or damaged bicycles reported to UAPD were stationed next to or in UA parking lots, under shade. Additional UAPD records list the most common parts to be found stripped off a bike as handlebars, seats, front wheels and some break cords. The final weeks of June featured almost a dozen reports of stolen or vandalized bikes according to UAPD records, with Hernandez noting that some victims of bike related crimes choose not to report vandalism or theft. As part of their bicycle programs, UA Parking and Transportation Services offers

bike registration for any student interested, increasing chances of recovery if lost or stolen. Other ways that bikes can be kept safe are with bicycle enclosures in university garages and individual bicycle lockers for rental use. It can be tough for UAPD to keep all bicycles safe from people trying to steal them from an unattended rack, but bicycle owners on campus can help to deter potential thefts by parking in less secluded areas. A bicycle with a hot bike seat and handlebars is better than an empty, broken lock on a bike rack in the shade.

FILM REVIEW | ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Latest Marvel movie offers more than tiny laughs REVIEW

BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

T

he first thing I would like to establish is a spoiler alert. I will be mentioning things from this movie and several others in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you follow any of the multi-milliondollar Marvel movies, you know that they are all connected some way, a fact that is prevalent in this movie, but I will hit on that later in the article. Ant-Man, the comic character, was first introduced to readers in Tales to Astonish #35 in September 1962. The character was originally the superhero alias of the “brilliant scientist” Hank Pym after inventing a substance that allowed him to change size; however, Scott Lang and Eric O’Grady have also taken on the Ant-Man mantle after Pym changed his superhero identity to Giant-Man. This is all in the comics, and I just thought I’d give some background to readers. The first Ant-Man film came out in 2015 and introduced Marvel film enthusiasts to characters like Hank Pym played by Michael Douglas, Hope van Dyne — the daughter of Hank — played by Evangeline Lilly and most importantly Scott Lang/Ant-Man played by Paul Rudd. The movie was like most intro-films for new characters, insofar as it played out to establish a story and build connections to the MCU, while also trying to pack action, comedy and subtle romance and conflict into one film. It made $57,225,526 opening weekend and was one of the side stories offering new characters and an expansion into the universe. “The story is very simple, but it’s entertaining enough to make us see it to the end,” said Parzival2000 on IMDB. “I was afraid that Ant-Man would be full of comedy, like Guardians of the Galaxy, that had so much that was tiresome. But this film had jokes in the right moment, it was very well used.” Many reviewers agreed that the film was different and good in that way, which made the sequel something to look forward to, at least in my opinion. This is in spite of it coming three years later, ironically in Phase Three of the MCU films, which includes movies from “Captain America: Civil War” (2016) to “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), releasing before there was lots of story to catch up on. The last Avengers film references AntMan several times with questions about why he isn’t fighting. The answer is he is on house arrest, which is the main plot in the new film. Infinity War has characters like

Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) not knowing of this “new superhero,” which all contributes to the movie timeline we all anticipated. Yes, both “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Avengers: Infinity War” take place simultaneously. This is very important to remember and the movie doesn’t let us forget this. It makes several references to fighting the Avengers in Germany, which took place in the film “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), and references other characters like Captain America often. Now, I’ve strayed a bit, so here I will talk about the actual movie. It had plenty of comedy, story and action. We start the film with Scott on house arrest and playing with his daughter, though playtime soon leads to his foot breaching his gate and the cops being called — classic Scott. This leads us to find out about the other characters. When Scott takes a bath, he has a vision of the Quantum Realm and sees that Hank’s wife Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), has been trapped there. He calls Hank and Hope to tell them what he has seen and then gets knocked out, only to wake up in a literal “mini” van — it’s been shrunk — with Hope driving and talking about the machine that opens the Quantum Realm, which is what the movie is plotted around. The movie goes on with them talking to bad guys, fighting and joking left and right. The bad guy is actually guys in this film, the most important being Ghost (Hannah John-Kaman) — a girl who was in an accident as a kid with a malfunctioned Quantum Realm opener machine, which lead her to have weird powers that split her atoms apart almost every second. This allows her to travel through walls and objects and such. As you probably guessed, she was turned into a weapon by the government and now is trying to use the new machine to save herself by whatever means necessary. The movie has several shrinkings, growths and so much more, but you will have to watch to understand it all. However, I think the combintion of Ant-Man and the Wasp fighting bad guys and moving the story along is great. Hope as the Wasp gives the suit and the hero a good reputation and a nice intro into what is to come. I think that the movie does a good job of tying things together in the MCU and explaining why Ant-Man was not present in the latest Avengers film, as well. It focuses more on plot rather than character building with the Wasp but still delivers. There are also plenty of one-liners and comedy sequences that round the movie out. For something that didn’t get much hype as far as advertising goes, it turned out well. They save Hope’s mom from the Quantum Realm at the end, and Ghost is “cured,” possibly to return as an ally in the next MCU film. The post-credits scene, however, is something that is amazing and will leave you

in shock. The newly reunited Hank, Janet and Hope send Ant-Man into the Quantum Realm to collect matter that could act as healing power. Everything goes correct, and they are communicating. Scott collects the matter in a container, but, as he calls to be returned, there is silence. Remember the ending of Avengers where half the characters turn to magic space dust and fade to who-knows-where? Well, this happens at the same time Ant-Man is in the Quantum Realm, so naturally this leaves the viewer on edge, because Hank, Janet and Hope turn to that dust and Ant-Man is stuck in the Quantum Realm.

Good stuff. I do enjoy the story-telling that goes on in the MCU and the timeline of all the films. This one does a great job of that, not leaving the audience bored or tired. I cannot wait for the next installment, for I am a fan of the films, characters and the cast.
