THE DAILY WILDCAT Printing the news, sounding the alarm, and raising hell since 1899



Groups push to legalize weed



No. 1 men’s basketball overcomes slow start to win 20th straight game, sets modern school record for consecutive wins




The Daily Wildcat With the legalization of marijuana taking effect in Washington and Colorado, a new student group on campus is pushing to bring legalization to Arizona. Students for Sensible Drug Policy, an international grassroots organization, established a chapter at the UA this month. One of the first things the group is doing is circulating a petition to put marijuana legalization on the ballot in Arizona this fall, according to Trevor Thornburg, a junior studying English and creative writing. Thornburg is the founder and president of the SSDP chapter at the UA. “I started the group because I saw the need for students to have an avenue of freedom of speech and an avenue of participating in the political process to make a change,” Thornburg said. “Marijuana legalization is a big issue right now and it’s part of our generation.” SSDP has recently been on campus in front of Heritage Hill gathering signatures for the petition. Thornburg said the group has collected more than 100 signatures so far. “I’d at least like to be out there two or three times a week, just so we have a presence and people are used to seeing us out there,” Thornburg said. The petition, started by grassroots organization Safer Arizona calls for an amendment to the state constitution that would allow individuals 18 and older to possess up to two-and-a-half ounces of marijuana for personal use. The petition needs about 300,000 signatures by July 3 in order to qualify for the ballot in November, according to Robert Clark, chairman of Safer Arizona. A May 2013 poll from the Behavior Research Center reported that support among Arizonans for the legalization of marijuana stands at 56 percent. Voters in Arizona have already legalized marijuana for




ARTS & LIFE - 10



JUNIOR GUARD Nick Johnson dunks the ball during the second half of Arizona’s 65-56 win over Utah at McKale Center on Sunday. Johnson scored a game high-22 points to help the Wildcats pull away from the Utes and win a modern school record 20th straight game.


The Daily Wildcat Despite retaining its No. 1 ranking, Arizona didn’t leave McKale Center on Sunday night as its usual pristine self. During much of the Wildcats’ (200, 7-0 Pac-12) 65-56 win over Utah (14-6, 3-5), Arizona didn’t shoot the ball well and didn’t appear to be the best team in the country. An early shooting percentage

below 20 percent put the Wildcats in a 10-point hole before anyone could even sit down. “They threw different defensive schemes at us,” junior guard Nick Johnson said. “We didn’t know what they were running, man or zone; it caught us off guard early.” For the first 10 minutes, nearly everything was going in Utah’s favor. With each shot attempt and every made basket for Utah, the tension in the sold-out arena intensified.

The title of No. 1 that Arizona fans so greatly cherished seemed to be slipping away with every ugly moment. The one bright spot keeping it close was rough and scrappy rebounding — the Wildcats outrebounded Utah 40-29. But early on, even the second chance attempts weren’t all going in for the top-ranked Wildcats. “We constantly dominated the

White House to honor professor BY ELIZABETH EATON

The Daily Wildcat David Savitt, associate professor in the department of mathematics, has always had a special connection with math. “I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t interested in math,” Savitt said. Savitt said his affinity for numbers became clear in elementary school, when he convinced his principal to let him into the accelerated math program. “I remember my parents taking me to talk with her,” Savitt said, “and I explained the trick where you can tell that a number is divisible by nine by adding up the digits and seeing if the sum of the digits is divisible by nine … and I explained to the principal why this worked.” Savitt’s interest has paid off. In late December he was awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. In 2010, Savitt was awarded a career grant by the National Science Foundation for strong research and teaching. Savitt said the NSF nominates people for the PECASE out of the pool of career grants. According to the NSF website, the PECASE is the highest honor the U.S. Government awards to scientists and engineers who show strong potential for leadership and scientific exploration. On Dec. 23, Savitt was officially

Overheard on Campus In the United States, Netflix is watched more than any cable network.

CEO Reed Hastings was inspired to create Netflix in 1997, after Blockbuster charged him a $40 late fee for a VHS copy of Apollo 13.

The average Netflix user watches 87 minutes per day, which equals approximately four episodes of “Girls.”

The locations of Netflix DVD warehouses are highly secretive, and employees are sworn to never reveal where they are.

Correction: The article “Worn-out Arizona hockey welcomes woeful Aztecs” (Joey Putrelo, Jan. 24) incorrectly stated that Arizona was ranked No. 17 and that its record was 12-17-0. It is actually ranked No. 15 and is 12-15-0. The online version has been corrected. The Daily Wildcat apologizes for the error.

Netflix is currently worth $20 billion.

their brain and of the world around them. “It’s useful to demonstrate to the public these similarities,” Strausfeld said, “because it helps us to relate to the environment we live in.” Joaquin Ruiz, dean of the College of Science, said “The Evolving Brain” was chosen because there’s a national drive to try to better understand the brain. Science has reached a point where research can help people understand a complex organ like the brain, he added. “It’s very important for our community to have educated people,” Ruiz said. “If you really want to have a working democracy and if you really want to be fully functional, you have to be educated.” Lecturers in the series will include science professors, neurosurgeons and doctors who work with MRIs. The last lecturer, William Bialek, is a mathematician visiting from Princeton University. Bialek works to understand how our brain functions and will try to explain why the human brain is far more complex than any computer, Ruiz said. The Marshall Foundation, a private foundation that donates to non-profit community organizations and focuses on funding education and UA programs and scholarships, is one of 13 sponsors this year. Jane McCollum, general manager of the foundation, said events like the annual science lecture series help the university fulfill its mission to engage the community and share what the university is doing. “It allows [the university] to invite people onto the campus to expose … the great programs the university has,” McCollum said. “That’s what a great university does. “It continues to engage people after they’ve left the university.”

notified that he was a recipient of the PECASE. “We were not at all surprised that he would be considered for this award,” said Daniel Madden, an associate professor and interim head of the department of mathematics. “He’s top in math research, earning him a growing reputation in number theory and geometry.” The main area of Savitt’s research is number theory. “What number theory is fundamentally about is about solving equations in whole numbers and rational numbers,” Savitt said. An example of this is the Pythagorean Theorem and a 3-4-5 triangle. The relationship between the lengths of the sides of the triangle is easily explainable with whole numbers in an equation, and a formula can be developed to find all of the solutions. One thing that fascinates Savitt is that a very similar triangle problem — establishing a relationship between the areas of the triangles instead of their side lengths — is currently unsolvable. “I study certain patterns in

whole numbers,” Savitt said. “There are very subtle patterns in integers that you wouldn’t notice just by looking at them, but they’re there. And they’re not so easy to understand, and they have a certain amount of symmetry.” Along with his dedication to research and passion for teaching, Savitt’s commitment to community service also helped him win the PECASE. Since 1996, Savitt has been working with mathematically talented high school students during a five-week summer program called Canada/USA Mathcamp. Though he is not the founder of the camp, he became one of the directors in 2002. “There’s a lot you can do in the way of enrichment for high school students to show them the world of mathematics,” Savitt said. Savitt will be recognized at the White House sometime this year for his accomplishments, though the exact date has yet to be determined. “Getting an award like this is gratifying, and it’s going to be exciting to go to the White House,” Savitt said.

Research universities about more than STEM BY EDITORIAL BOARD The Daily Wildcat


ccording to Arizona Rep. John Kavanagh (R-Scottsdale), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, we shouldn’t be here. As a group of liberal arts students attending a four-year public research university, we should either stop sucking up state funds and plop down in the McDonalds we would have ended up in anyway, or stick around and turn from our passions to more practical studies. Truly, any number of options are open to us in Kavanagh’s disciplinesegregated educational model: we can be scientists or engineers. Anything else, and we belong somewhere less prestigious, where we can’t muck up the UA’s image and STEM research initiatives. Forget the Daily Wildcat. Forget the UA Poetry Center and Center for Creative Photography. Forget Ka’Deem Carey (a religious studies major), Grant Jerrett and Aaron Gordon, who attended the UA on athletic scholarships and pursued an uncertain future in the world of sports. Forget those Pulitzer Prize winners from the UA school of journalism. Forget the U.S. senators, presidential nominees and representatives who have graduated from our university with a liberal arts degree and uncertain job prospects. Forget an apparently expendable 41 percent of our population who likely had little contact with Kavanagh’s precious STEM-related departments — all you students in the colleges of architecture, education, fine arts, humanities, letters, arts and sciences, law, or social and behavioral sciences. In Kavanagh’s model, the value of education is defined by projected dollars and cents, by the amount of rungs climbed in The Princeton Review or U.S. News & World Report. Though he purports to be concerned with the quality of our universities, Kavanagh is really talking to us about quantity: How many cash cows can Arizona pump out of its educational system? He could at least do us the decency of pretending he’s not eyeing us like his next filet mignon. Sequestering these prime rib students in our best-funded universities, Kavanagh apparently believes, will ensure that less money is wasted on debt-accumulating “anybodies” unconcerned with future job prospects. But Kavanagh seems to have a fatal misconception about what a research university actually researches. Right alongside our prestigious STEM-based research centers are The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies, the Social & Behavioral Sciences Research Institute, the Southwest Center and so many more. In those centers, our best and brightest are also studying linguistics, urban development, folklore and art. Is Kavanagh looking to create a new kind of research university, one at which no one would ever use the dreaded word “interdisciplinary?” The importance of a wellrounded education can’t be overstated. In addition to teaching a craft or a trade, college is meant to imbue students with essential communication skills, different modes of critical thinking and tolerance. Scientists and engineers, above almost all others, must have the ability to relate to those they are trying to help. And considering the UA’s general education requirements for all majors, it seems that we’re not alone in this belief. One of the unique experiences of the American college system is selfexploration. At 18, we don’t have to have it all figured out. We have the opportunity to muck about a bit, to experiment and grow before we set our lives’ agendas in stone. Thankfully, Kavanagh has a plan to get us humanities folks straight to work: Learn the skills to become machinists and make boatloads of cash. We have our own suggestion for Kavanagh: If all you want to do is pump out drones, open a factory.

Reefer sadness: Marijuana legalization is the total pots BY KATELYN KENNON The Daily Wildcat


’ve got a burning question: Who benefits from marijuana legalization? The UA Students for Sensible Drug Policy seem to think all Arizonans would, as they fight to get the measure placed on November’s ballot — much like the citizens of Colorado did successfully in 2012. According to a recent Pew Study, 52 percent of American adults support legalization, but only a niche group will benefit from it. Because Arizona would likely opt to handle the issue as Colorado is, our state would inherit all of the same problems caused by state sanctioned, non-inclusive legalization. Such limited authorization protects the same people — middle to upper class pot-smoking white folks who never needed protection — while only making life harder for those usually affected by marijuana criminalization — the working class and people of color. Ezekiel Edwards, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Criminal Law Reform Project claims that Colorado’s decision to legalize has “stopped the needless and racially biased enforcement of marijuana prohibition laws.”

This would be ideal because, must have the means to grow according to the ACLU’s report on their own pot until October, install marijuana and race, pot use in the heightened security and, of course, 18 to 25 age group — the group most pay their employees and taxes. commonly arrested for possession — It’s just as hard to use the stores is about the same for white and black without sufficient funds. people.

Gov. Chris Christie’s gotta pay the troll toll BY NICK HAVEY The Daily Wildcat


t isn’t often that a politician can go throughout his or her career without some inkling of scandal, trouble or corruption, and unfortunately Chris Christie’s formerly bright star began to fade in early September. It started when Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff for legislative and intergovernmental affairs, wrote in an e-mail that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Following closures on the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey, political pundits, citizens and politicians alike questioned the likelihood of Christie’s capability to continue his bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. “Bridgegate” may just be the final nail in Christie’s political coffin. Since his gubernatorial debut in 2010, Christie has been touted as one of the Republican Party’s most popular figures and one of the most authentic politicians out there. That authenticity comes at a

price, with many news outlets and pundits labeling him a “bully” who is swift to exact retribution. According to e-mail records and correspondence, the bridge closures were supposed to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich because he did not support Christie’s bid for governor. It was a childish move by anyone’s standards. The punishment was ludicrous and tarnished the reputations of both the state of New Jersey and the Port Authority of New Jersey. To make matters worse for himself, Christie didn’t acknowledge involvement and feigned confusion — claiming to be “misled by staff” — for four days after being confronted with damning e-mails and correspondence from his office. Even Christie’s apology to Sokolich was met with suspicion and worry. It comes as no surprise that Christie’s approval ratings have also dropped nearly 20 points since the scandal. This isn’t the first time Christie’s actions have been petty and inappropriate. He shut down the Access to the Region’s Core tunnel project — a project designed to provide critical train access into the core of the Northeast, which would have created thousands of jobs — as a result of inflated

interests. It’s not a great leap of the imagination. Despite the perception of increasingly liberal attitudes toward marijuana, arrests are not decreasing: U.S. News & World Report states that one pot-related arrest was made every 42 seconds in 2012. Even if dispensaries’ high prices are only short-term and the market eventually balances out, we’re still going to see a lot of arrests of and time served by populations that already have a disproportionate incarceration rate, Taylor wrote. If Colorado were truly interested in leveling injustice and bringing about change, it would not demonize or differentiate between itself and street dealers. It would not decide that those previously arrested on drug felony charges couldn’t become vendors in the fancy new dispensaries. The state would offer to train and invest in former drug dealers who wanted to get in on selling the drug legally. It would offer pardons to those serving time for minor possession charges. Instead, what Colorado has given us is a token gesture of legalization, hoping that we’ll forget how deeply prejudiced our justice system is.

projected costs. He has a history of reckless driving, with at least six accidents and 13 recorded traffic violations. He utilizes expensive state helicopters and car services in lieu of public travel and stays in exorbitantly costly hotels like the Four Seasons in Washington on the public tab. America wants, deserves and admires accountability — something Christie made no strides to give to the public. It doesn’t need a bully, it doesn’t need revenge and most of all, it doesn’t need a politician who refuses to acknowledge participation in an act that should have been his decision in the first place. Nick Mahon, president of the UA Young Democrats, has a lot to say about Christie. Following “Bridgegate” Mahon said, “The political corruption and bullying that has come out of Gov. Chris Christie’s office proves that he is unfit for public office, be it president or governor of New Jersey. The people of New Jersey deserve better and I am sure that any higher political ambitions from Christie will be truncated by a backlash from voters.” The highest office in the land is no place for idle bystanders, much less vengeful schoolyard bullies with penchants for needless public spending. “Bridgegate” might still be under investigation, but Christie’s time pushing around the little guys in politics has come to a close.

POLICE BEAT BY Ethan McSweeney The Daily Wildcat

Brown bag special

A UA student was cited and released for underage drinking near Highland Avenue Parking Garage on Jan. 19 at 12:02 a.m. Two University of Arizona Police Department officers were patrolling the area around the parking garage when they noticed three people walking nearby, one of whom was holding a brown plastic bag. When the officers drove by, the student with the bag swung his arm around in an attempt to conceal the bag from the officers. The officers turned their vehicle around to stop the group. By the time the officers got there, a different person was holding the brown plastic bag. When officers asked, the person now carrying the bag said there was alcohol inside. An officer then asked the student who was originally carrying the bag why he had handed it off. The student denied ever carrying the bag. The officers could smell alcohol on his breath, and noticed his speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot and watery. The student’s ID stated that he was under 21 years old. The student denied he had been drinking but refused to take a preliminary breath test. The officers placed the student in handcuffs after he became agitated and aggressive. The officers then explained the court process to the student, who became much more cooperative. The officers took the handcuffs off the student so he could sign his citation. The bag contained an open bottle of E&J Brandy, which was poured out. A code of conduct violation was sent to the Dean of Students Office.

Put out the Fireball

A UA student received diversion for public drinking at Likins Residence Hall on Jan. 19 around 12:40 a.m. A UAPD officer went to Likins following a report of a student vomiting on a bathroom floor. The officer met with the resident assistant, who escorted him and members of the Tucson Fire Department up to the bathroom. TFD began to give medical help to the student on the floor. Another student told the officer that she had been with the first student at an off-campus party. The first student had been drinking Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, according to the second student. The student on the floor showed several signs of intoxication: slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and breath smelling of alcohol. She was vomiting in the trash can and could not answer any questions for TFD. The student was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center for extreme intoxication. The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

Speedy weed

A non-UA affiliated man was cited and released for possession of marijuana at Sixth Street Parking Garage on Wednesday at 12:40 p.m. A UAPD officer monitoring traffic on East Sixth Street noticed a green pickup truck driving 11 mph over the speed limit. When the truck passed, the officer also noticed the driver was not wearing a seat belt. The officer pulled the truck over near Sixth Street Parking Garage. The driver provided the officer with his driver’s license and vehicle registration. The officer smelled marijuana and asked the driver where it was. The driver reached into the center console and took out a baggy containing a small amount of marijuana. The driver told the officer, “Yeah, I smoked a joint and I’m running late.” The officer then placed the driver under arrest, and other officers arrived to search the vehicle. The driver was charged with possession of marijuana and issued a civil seat belt violation. The driver was then released at the scene and the marijuana was placed into evidence.

HISTORIC COMEBACK Gymnastics posts fifth-best score ever despite losing leader


The Daily Wildcat



Arizona gymnastics not only lost a meet (197.575-196.925) to No. 1 Oklahoma, it also lost one of its leaders to an injury. However, the Gymcats then regrouped to have one of their best meets ever. The No. 17 Gymcats’ (2-2) total score of 196.925 on Saturday against the Sooners is the best since 2004 and fifth-highest in program history. It came after senior Jordan Williams slipped and fell off the bars and had to leave the meet. “It was a great effort from the team,” head coach Bill Ryden said. “We had to rebound from adversity when we lost Jordan, the girls in her place stepped up and did a fantastic job and overall it was our best team effort of the year.” In their first two meets, only one Gymcat has competed in the all-around: Williams. But the Gymcats carried on, and sophomore Shelby Edwards earned a 9.800 on the bars. The UA did even better in the last two events, beam and floor. “It’s unfortunate, and it’s really scary at the time, but I think everyone just has to focus on moving forward,” junior Kristin Klarenbach said of Williams’ injury. “It’s a tough thing to do, and kudos to the girl after that, that hit her routine.” Every Gymcat tied or set a new career on the beam as the team posted a 49.050, a season best, while Oklahoma got a 49.525. Edwards earned a 9.850 and tied for second best. Juniors Amber Wobma and Allie Flores each tallied a 9.800 and senior Shana Sangston CARLOS HERRERA/THE DAILY WILDCAT got a 9.775. “The girls have witnessed quite a few JUNIOR KRISTIN KLARENBACH smiles after her floor routine in McKale Center on Saturday. The No. 17 UA Gymcats fell injuries in their day,” Ryden said. “They know to No. 1 Oklahoma (197.575-196.925) in front of a crowd of 2,166.

captain, has now scored a goal in six straight games. “With our line, we pride ourselves on our ability to move the puck and [move] the puck around between us,” IvensAnderson said. “San Diego State was a very passive team, so they gave us a lot of time in their zone and with the three of us [Andrew Murmes, Parker and IvensAnderson], if you give us enough time, we’re going to put it in.” Saturday was also Skate With the Wildcats night, where fans got a chance for the second time this season to get up close


glass,” Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. “That’s why we won.” The Wildcats got plenty of secondchance opportunities, and finished the game with 20 offensive rebounds — 12 combined by freshmen Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Aaron Gordon. While the chances were there, Arizona didn’t pull away because of the poor early shooting percentage from the challenging defenses. “We anticipated that type of game — Utah plays us differently,” Miller said. “[Utah’s defense] ran a triangle two, a 2-3 zone and a man-man, switch[ed] every screen to man to man, showed 2-3 zone but switched to man to man, showed man to man and switched to a 2-3 zone. “They don’t necessarily always do that, and we prepared for that, but I think playing against it and seeing it are two completely different types of things,” Miller added. Most teams dig themselves out of holes with 3-pointers, but Arizona only made three of its 14 attempts. So after falling behind by 10 it was the Wildcats’ physicality and toughness on the boards and in transition that finally carried them to victory. “[Arizona] just grinds you and grinds you and grinds you,” Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak said after the game, “and eventually the defense gets tired of being on the field at the end of the game.” The wear was apparent. The Wildcats finally started to seize secondchance opportunities and the pace of the game was to Arizona’s liking. “We’re best when we’re on the run and in transition,” said Johnson, who finished with a game-high 22 points, “and the best way to do that is off defensive rebounds.” Led by its effort on the glass, Arizona finished off the Utes with a late 14-2 run that gave the Wildcats their first 20-game win streak in nearly a century. “We were star-struck at the beginning with the way that they chose to play us,” Miller said. “It had us off balance. But eventually we got back to really good defense and offense, which was centered on offensive rebounds.”

The Daily Wildcat Arizona hockey head coach Sean Hogan said the largest margin of victory that the ACHA computer polls take into account is seven goals. The Wildcats accomplished that feat and then some in a sweep of San Diego State. On Friday, the No. 15 UA (14-15-0, 5-6-0 WCHL) cracked double digits on the scoreboard for the first time this season in a dominant 10-3 win over the Aztecs (10-12-0). The next night, Arizona sent San Diego State home with a 9-0 blowout. With SDSU hailing from ACHA Division II, it was obvious the entire weekend the UA was in a different league. “We moved the puck low to high, got a lot of shots from the point and won those front battles,” Hogan said. “Overall I do think we played well, but now we have to take that momentum and really play hard and maximize our practice time.” Caps were flying onto the ice both nights, as wingers Robbie Wilkinson earned a hat trick Friday night while Brennen Parker and Ansel IvensAnderson found the net three times as well on Saturday. Wilkinson now has 14 goals on the season and is second on the team to senior Andrew Murmes. “Usually when I’m playing I’m more of a playmaker, but coach [Hogan] has been telling me to shoot the puck a lot lately, and it’s been going in,” Wilkinson said. “They [the Aztecs] collapsed, so they gave us a lot of time and space, so we just took advantage of that and crashed the net.” Ivens-Anderson, the team

DAVE STRACK served as the UA’s athletic director from 1972 to 1982.

by luke della

The Daily Wildcat Former UA athletic director Dave Strack died on Saturday. Strack served as the university’s athletic director from 1972 to 1982. During his decade-long tenure, he oversaw the opening of McKale Center and the Wildcats’ move from the Western Athletic Conference to the then-Pac-8. He might, however, be best known for his 1972 hiring of Fred Snowden, the first black head coach at a major university. “He was a forward-thinking administrator who did a lot for the University of Arizona and its athletics department,” said current UA athletic director Greg Byrne, in a press release. Strack died at the age of 90. Strack asked to be relieved of his administrative duties in

1982, after coming under fire as a result of a scandal involving the football team in 1980. Former head football coach Tony Mason had faced criminal charges of filing false claims for travel expenses. Though he was acquitted by a Pima Country Superior Court jury, it was disclosed that a reserve or slush fund was created early in Strack’s regime by the athletic depart for its own use. Following his resignation, Strack became a professor of physical education at the university. Before coming to Arizona, Strack was the men’s head basketball coach at Michigan. In 1965, he led the Wolverines to the NCAA championship game, where they lost to UCLA.

Two more Pac-12 conference losses have put the Arizona women’s basketball team (4-15, 0-8) in a dubious spot. The team is tied for its worst start in conference play since the 2007-08 season, when Arizona also started 0-8. On Sunday the Utah Utes (9-10, 2-6) beat the Wildcats 60-57 in Salt Lake City. The defeat marks the 11th time this season in which the Wildcats have lost by 10 or fewer points. Their lategame execution has been a large part in all of the close losses this season. Their inability to execute down the stretch foiled what was a valiant comeback attempt by the Wildcats against Utah. In the last four minutes of the game, Arizona went 2-for-10 from the field and scored only four points. Senior guard Kama Griffitts led Arizona with 13 points, but junior guard Candice Warthen led the late surge by scoring 10 of her 12 points in the second half. Even though Warthen and Griffitts combined to score 25 points, it was ineffective. The duo shot 10-26 from the field for 38.5 percent. By comparison, the rest of the Wildcats were much more efficient, as they shot 14-for-30 from the field for 46.7 percent. Utah senior forward Michelle Plouffe scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Plouffe scored eight of Utah’s final nine points to close out the game. On Friday, the short-handed Arizona squad traveled to Boulder, Colo., and lost to the Colorado Buffaloes (12-7, 2-6) with a score of 68-47. Arizona battled early and held a one-point lead with 13:56 left in the first half. However, the Buffaloes took the lead about 30 seconds later and didn’t give it up for the rest of the

game. “Once [Colorado] made a run, I feel like we should’ve pushed back harder,” UA freshman forward Breanna Workman said. Arizona’s 20 turnovers played a large part in its failure to regain momentum and led to Colorado scoring 24 points off those turnovers. Five out of the seven Wildcats who suited up had three or more turnovers. “We would rebound the basketball on second-chance opportunities, and then just turn it right back over,”

UA head coach Niya Butts said. “We didn’t do a very good job of taking care of the basketball, and we didn’t finish very well.” Colorado forward Jen Reese scored a game-high 22 points and the Buffaloes had three players in double figures. Looking forward, the Wildcats return home to face Oregon on Friday and Oregon State on Sunday. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

The Evolving Brain

Time Traveling: What Our Braıns Share with Beetle Brains Nicholas J. Strausfeld, PhD

Get your new year off to a great start and reconnect with all the UA has to offer you with “New Year + New You”: Wednesday, January 29th from 10am-2pm on the UA Mall.


The astonishingly complex human brain is the product of hundreds of millions of years of evolution. Layered upon its core of ancient molecules and neural circuits, new structures have evolved that expand the brain’s capacity. This first lecture explores the brain’s ancestral inheritance and challenges how we relate to other animal species. UAscienceLectures

often to stop the spread of germs.

Though most women will produce enough hCG to yield an accurate test as soon as their period is late, there are several steps to increase your confidence in the results: read and follow the instructions carefully, make sure the test isn’t expired, wait a week after your period is late to test, take the HPT first thing in the morning, and wait 10 minutes to read the results.

HPTs are available from the Campus Health pharmacy for just $7.99. If you get a negative result, it’s probably a good idea to test yourself again a few days later. If your test is positive, you’ll want to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse practitioner right away to confirm the results. For more information on pregnancy testing or to discuss your options, contact Campus Health’s Women’s Health Clinic at (520) 621-9202.

with people who are sick. Stay home if you are sick.

4 5 Cover your mouth and nose

If you prefer someone else to determine whether you are pregnant or not, the presence of hCG can be determined through blood tests available through your health care provider. Blood tests, though more costly, have the benefit of determining if you are pregnant as soon as 6-8 days after ovulation-that’s over a week sooner than a home pregnancy test should be used.

— — — — — —

A. As soon as your period is one day late, you can take a home pregnancy test (HPT) and get very accurate results. HPTs work by screening for the presence of hCG, a hormone produced during pregnancy, in the urine. Most HPTs sold at pharmacies and other retail stores claim to be 99% accurate after the first day of a missed period. However, research indicates that early use (in the first days after a period is late) may be too soon to detect lower levels of hCG and will often render very faint results on the test strip.

3 Avoid close contact

How soon can I take a home pregnancy test? How accurate are they?

2 Avoid touching your eyes,

nose, or mouth since germs are often spread this way.

Border issues visualized in art Multimedia performance ‘Dreams and Silhouettes’ uses visual arts to exhibit controversial local political issues based on border control and women’s rights BY Kevin Reagan

The Daily Wildcat “I am Border Patrol.” This was the first line of audible dialogue that spectators at the new multimedia performance “Dreams and Silhouettes/Suenos y Silhuetas”, heard amidst the sound of blaring police sirens on Saturday. Staged in the back room of the Global Justice Center, this postmodern art piece wove together paint, projection slides and political propaganda that portrayed the U.S. Border Patrol as antagonist. The director, Denise Uyehara, characterized the Border Patrol as an unscrupulous demagogue in the narrative about immigrants living under the constant threat of deportation. The use of a booming loudspeaker and ominous voice added to an Orwellian atmosphere. The focus of the performance was recorded testimonies of anonymous women from the Tucson community, women who offered authentic stories of struggle and survival. The words of these women were projected alongside images of empty desert landscape. One of the stories came from a woman who spent five years studying to become a computer programmer, but now works as a dishwasher in a hotel kitchen. The audience got a glimpse of the theme of oppression before the performance even began. As spectators stood together around a bare stage, the only fixture they saw was a giant birdcage plastered with copies of documentation papers — pieces of bureaucracy that can symbolize freedom or humiliation for immigrants. While spectators continued filing into the performance space, one of the actresses quietly slipped into a birdcage. She remained completely silent as she covered the birdcage with fragments of American identification cards and permanent resident documents. Her imprisonment was accompanied by the chirps of birds over the loudspeaker, which served as a poignant reminder of hope for people who feel entrapped in a place they’ve always considered home. The birdcage was just one of many symbols profiled in this conglomeration of art and media. As the words and whispers of women filled the room with testimonies of suffering, three artists dressed in black emerged from the shadows and began to paint a mural onstage. The giant white canvas originally

Netflix: still on the rise BY Taylor Armosino

The Daily Wildcat Netflix’s success represents a fundamental cultural shift in American entertainment. Americans are streaming TV shows and movies more than ever before. At the forefront of this shift is the world’s largest subscription streaming service — Netflix. The online movie and TV streaming company released its new quarterly sales and profits report on Wednesday, showing staggering statistics. Netflix saw its stock rise 16 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to a whopping 2.3 million new subscribers. The entertainment giant has an estimated stock market value of over $20 billion, recording a closing price of $386 a share on Jan. 24. It brought in $1.2 billion in revenue, which is up $1.1 billion from the prior quarter. The company has a net income of $48 million, up from $32 million . The shock value (to Netflix’s competitors, at least) is that the company still has plenty of room to grow. With 33 million Americans already in hand, Netflix projects a gain of 2.25 million domestic subscribers in the first quarter of 2014 . In a letter to shareholders on Wednesday, Netflix called the figures “a great outcome,” but also referenced “years of member growth ahead.” The company is expanding its reach overseas and will build on its 10 million international subscribers . It has been operating at an international loss due to expansion efforts, but

Netflix releases every episode in a season of a show simultaneously, contributing to “binge-watching,” which 61 percent of Netflix users partake in.

those numbers are decreasing. The company has seen gain in the international market, and Netflix has plans up its sleeve to launch a “substantial” European expansion later this year. So what makes Netflix so successful? It delivers more programming than any other company in their field. Rather than quality, the sheer quantity of content being delivered boosts network value. This isn’t to say quality isn’t an important factor, but there are a few reasons that explain why Netflix is on a different level than organizations like HBO. The online streaming service provides consumers with a plethora of instant programming that’s

accessible at all times on a multitude of devices. The company has successfully made Netflix accessible nearly anywhere and at any time. Subscribers can fire up their favorite episodes of “Breaking Bad” not only on their TV or computer, but also on their smart phones, tablets and gaming consoles. “Binge-watching,” a term that is rightfully correlated with the accessibility of Netflix, is defined as the act of watching two or more episodes of a single TV show in one sitting. This is the new norm in America, and no service is better equipped to fulfill a consumer’s bingewatching needs than Netflix. In a poll released in December, Netflix found

breaking through the barrier. The performance ended with the ensemble walking a trail of more copies of citizenship documents. They each began picking up scraps of clothing and covering their bleak, white wardrobe with distinctive signs. The performance was an uplifting reminder that a human’s right to freedom is stronger than any oppressive border law. It seemed to say that despite the Border Patrol’s ability to strip away the goals of working-class immigrants, it cannot whitewash their identities. The overarching message of “Dreams and Silhouettes/Suenos y Silhuetas,” embraced how identity is best encompassed in the soul, not on a piece of paper.

that 61 percent of people surveyed binge-watch shows regularly, 73 percent see binge-watching in a favorable light and 79 percent thought that binge-watching actually made them enjoy the shows more. These numbers support the company’s method of releasing full seasons of programs at once, which allows the consumer to decide when and at what pace they want to view. Friday, the entertainment giant released its second original documentary of 2014, “Mitt”, a documentary about former presidential candidate Mitt Romney. In 2013, Netflix debuted a plethora of original programming that included 21 original series, stand-up comedy specials and documentaries. The lineup proved to be a great success. Shows like “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black” headlined the popular original Netflix content. True to form, the new series were all released in whole seasons rather than in weekly episodes, which appealed to bingewatchers. Several of the shows have been nominated for awards — “House of Cards” alone garnered four Golden Globe nominations and nine Primetime Emmy nominations, and secured more than one win — which confirms their quality and marketability. Delivering original content has paid off, and Netflix will most likely expand the effort in upcoming years. In the early 2000s, the now-extinct rental service Blockbuster passed up the opportunity to buy Netflix for $50 million. Ten years ago, it was customary to rent DVDs, and Blockbuster was at the height of its power. Today, due to the popularity of online streaming, the last Blockbuster stores are closing their doors. With streaming, Netflix meets a need subscription rental companies such as Blockbuster failed to consider. It is at the forefront of the fundamental shift in how Americans watch television and movies, and it doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon. — Follow Taylor Armosino @tarmosino
