Pell Grant funds uncertain Take it to the limit

Program allocation could be affected by US House resolution

By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Freshman Crystal Sapien relies on grant money to attend the UA and worries that a possible $800 cut to her federal Pell Grant award would make life more stressful. “Even though it doesn’t seem like a large amount, I’d probably have to get another loan,” said

Size doesn’t matter

Sapien, who studies speech and hearing sciences. “With interest, that adds up over four years.” Sapien is among more than 10,200 undergraduate students at the UA who could be affected by a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, according to John Nametz, director of the Office of Student Financial Aid. The resolution could reduce Pell Grants

to their pre-stimulus levels. House Resolution 38 allows the chair of the House Committee on the Budget to cut non-security spending to 2008 levels or less. The Federal Pell Grant program, which provides funding for college students based on financial need, received an additional $17.1 billion in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009.

Pell Grant funding for the 2010 to 2011 academic year totals more than $40 million at the UA, according to Nametz. He said loans and work programs are the largest sources of financial aid, but that Pell Grants help many students. “The Pell Grant is just a terribly important funding source,”

Regents to vote on raising cap for out-of-state enrollment

Students danced the night away during the University Activities Board’s Techno Glow Rave on Friday. The rave, one of the monthly events which the Activities Board holds, came at the same time the University Activities Board officially merged with the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. Before entering the Games Room in the Student Union Memorial Center, people were able to jump onto a large inflatable red chair and have their pictures taken. “We were deciding between an oxygen bar, sandy-candy or the chair,” said Janie van der Walt, a chemistry freshman and member of the University Activities Board. “I really pushed for the chair.” Photos were taken and printed on the spot, so guests were able Will Ferguson/Arizona Daily Wildcat to take the keepsakes with them.

The Arizona Board of Regents is considering permanently raising the number of non-resident students Arizona universities are allowed to enroll. Two years ago, the regents voted to temporarily increase the non-resident student population cap to 40 percent of the total student population in Arizona . Next month, they will decide whether to make that change permanent. About 30 percent of UA students are currently from out of state. To UA administrators, the move grants the university additional flexibility in their admissions process. “I favor having some flexibility to allow this number to vary from year-to-year,” UA President Robert Shelton wrote in an email. “The admissions process is not completely scientific, (it) depends on applications and acceptance rates, so flexibility is important.” Melissa Vito, the vice president of Student Affairs , said this flexibility ensures the UA can admit more qualified students from out-of-state. She also said the higher tuition costs non-resident students pay could help keep tuition rates at a more constant level. “Non-resident students typically pay the full cost of their education, and additional nonresidents has the potential to allow us to retain more modest tuition for resident students,” Vito said. “The net tuition revenue from non-resident students is particularly important as state support declines.” Last year, Arizona residents paid $6,842 in tuition and fees to attend the UA, approximately 30 percent of the rate paid by their non-resident cohort . John Nametz, director of the Office of Student Financial Aid , estimated that 17 percent of every tuition dollar paid is made available to UA students in the form of institutional grants or scholarships. “If the university is allowed to enroll the students that we want to, it benefits the students,” Nametz said. “We’re a non-profit charity institution that works on the behalf of students and from what I see here, this change could be beneficial to students.” Nametz also said he thinks it is “pretty unlikely” the UA will reach that 40 percent benchmark, and he doesn’t think resident students will be negatively affected by a rise in the non-resident student population. “From what I can see, enrollment at the university for students that are residents of Arizona has not been impacted at all in terms of admissibility,” he said. “Nobody’s been denied admissions because there are no spaces left.” Elma Delic, board chair of the Arizona Students’ Association ,

Study: Students care more about teaching than class numbers By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The latest numbers show one out of every 20 classes offered at UA has at least 100 students, but the UA is working to make the lives of those in such classes easier. Professors and administrators alike are working to prove a 2005 University of Maryland study correct. That study concluded students tend to focus more on the quality of instruction rather than the size of a class. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, large classes do not necessarily hinder instruction. “The impact of class size on the overall learning environment is related to such factors as teaching style, student behavior, and the opportunity for students to meet with teachers outside of class,” the website states. This semester, the UA is placing a greater emphasis on community volunteers and student-faculty interaction grants, in the hopes CLASSES, page 5

‘Ten Chimneys’ talks powerful theatre, isn’t By Christy Delehanty ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The advantages that plays have over other art forms are, in theory, countless. The live aspect is supposed to give a sense of immediacy, the actors have the opportunity to better engage their audience and the crowd’s involvement can add to the experience, too. And in the Arizona Theatre Company’s production of Jeffrey Hatcher ’s original play, “Ten Chimneys,” these truths are exactly the point. Based on the legendary Broadway couple of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne and their 1930s production of Chekhov’s “The Sea Gull,” the play tracks a partial cast as they investigate the script they have chosen at the Lunts’ Wisconsin home. A work of speculation and invention, “Ten Chimneys” slowly builds a case for the inextricability of life and passionate art. It is through the “Inception ”-style intertwining of the characters’ lives and their assumed roles in Chekhov’s Russian comedy, “The Sea Gull,” that the play delivers its message. But it is through the historical gossip columnfeel (here’s the mostly fictional scoop on rich and famous Broadway loves of yore) and drama (borrowed from the traitorous lovers and lurking insanity in “The Sea Gull”) that it maintains audience attention. Not that it always does. The sign in the hallway stating the show’s length should look more like caution tape; at nearly two and a half hours, It wasn’t a surprise to hear spectators complain that the play dragged on. Even the seemingly experienced cast — solid in their effort and execution, hilarious in their well-paced laugh-outloud moments — wasn’t quite enough to make the complex, slow-motion storyline entirely digestible. The humor written

into the play is of a snarky banter variety, which comes to a head in back and forths such as: “Hattie’s a dream, isn’t she?” “Yes, the kind you tell to an analyst.” From this, much like from inside jokes in sitcoms, the audience derives a sense of intimacy among themselves and the characters before them. The play’s assumptions about the power of theater, which ultimately form the basis for its myriad emotions, betrayals and uncut drama, are ironically undercut by the production of the play itself. If the audience is supposed to come away with a better understanding of the inseparability of passionate acting and passionate living, shouldn’t the play itself be one so honest it seems lifelike? Props to Arizona Theatre Company for diving headfirst into the world Hatcher created; from the honest play acting within play acting to the nuanced set — complete with a full-sized studio cabin and a tree canopy suggestive of dappled forest light — everything seems done sans stops. But something is still amiss. As “Ten Chimneys” speaks to the draw and power of plays, the audience becomes ever more aware of the contrived nature of the play they’re in the middle of watching.

Egypt calls for end to Mubarek’s rule

‘Jihad Jane’ set to plead guilty

MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS CAIRO, Egypt — Tens of thousands of Egyptians broke curfew Saturday to march in Cairo and other major cities in a clear message to U.S.-allied president Hosni Mubarak that nothing short of his resignation would end antigovernment protests. The police, who were the targets of much of Friday’s violence, had vanished from the streets and were replaced by the more popular Egyptian army, which was welcomed by protesters who hugged soldiers and snapped souvenir photos of their tanks. But the absence of the police also created an opening for gangs of thugs who looted private homes and shops and prompted some neighborhoods to form vigilante groups that

intercepted cars and kept non-residents out. Throughout the day, the military showed extraordinary restraint, even allowing some protesters to write graffiti on some tanks: “Down with Mubarak!” But Egyptians were bracing for a showdown. The question was, will the army stand with the people or with the Mubarak regime? “This is the nation’s army, not Mubarak’s army,” said Nabil Abdel Fattah, deputy director of the Cairo-based Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies. “I think the army will take the side of the Egyptian national movement.” By 10 p.m. Saturday, most of the protesters had gone home, though criminal elements continued their looting.

LOS ANGELES — A Pennsylvania woman accused of plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist who depicted the prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog appears set to change her plea to guilty. Colleen LaRose, 47, pleaded not guilty last March to charges including conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill in a foreign country. A court document released Friday shows she is set to change her plea at a hearing in Philadelphia on Tuesday. In Pennsburg, where she lived 35 miles north of Philadelphia, LaRose did not publicly profess faith in Islam, even to her live-in boyfriend.

But online, authorities say, she went under the name “Jihad Jane” and “Fatima LaRose,” posed for her MySpace photo in a burka, and wrote about her desire to become a martyr for Islam. According to the federal indictment against her, LaRose “recruited men online to wage violent jihad in South Asia and Europe” and recruited women to support them. She traveled to Europe in August 2009, allegedly with the intent to find and assassinate cartoonist Lars Vilks. She took her boyfriend’s passport when she left the United States with the intent of providing it to militants, according to the indictment.

Presidency defined by crisis



Ingushetia, Dagestan, North Ossetia and KabardinoBalkaria — in particular singling out the Nogay Jamaat terrorist group. Numerous radical Islamist groups have been fighting for an independent “emirate” in the North Caucasus for years as the Kremlin has struggled to impose peace on the region, plagued by poverty and high unemployment. According to a Saturday report by the business daily Kommersant, the explosive belt worn by the bomber had been remotely activated. President Dmitry Medvedev on Saturday gave written instructions to premier Vladimir Putin, giving him until March to put forward proposals on an improved security system for public transport. A law on the stricter regulation of explosives should also be put forward by July, Medvedev said.

WASHINGTON — When he came to power, Barack Obama inherited two wars, but the sudden upheaval in Egypt poses the biggest new foreign policy challenge of his presidency. How effectively the administration manages the unfolding crisis in the Middle East will shape perceptions of Obama as a leader, abroad and at home. If events spiral out of control, Obama and his advisors will likely be criticized for failing to head off a potential disaster in a volatile part of the world. Obama had hoped to keep his main focus on jobs and the American economy, long seen as keys to his chances for a second term, while winding down U.S. military involvement in Iraq

and gaining the upper hand against global terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But the latest images from northern Africa, playing out across the region and in the United States, presented a new challenge to Obama’s leadership and, ultimately, his standing with the public. “Who knows where this is going? Should things not hold in Egypt, or should this catch fire in other Middle Eastern states, people really are going to watch how he handles the first major new foreign crisis on his watch,” said Ryan C. Crocker, former U.S. ambassador to several Middle Eastern countries and currently dean of the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

FBI involved in hundreds of violations MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS WASHINGTON — The FBI disclosed to a presidential board that it was involved in nearly 800 violations of laws, regulations or policies governing national security investigations from 2001 to 2008, but the government won’t provide details or say whether anyone was disciplined, according to a report by a privacy watchdog group. The San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation sued under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain about 2,500 documents that the FBI submitted to the President’s Intelligence Oversight Board. The board was created in 1976 to monitor U.S. intelligence gathering. Intelligence agencies are required to submit reports to the board about suspected violations of civil-rightsrelated laws or presidential orders. The nonprofit foundation said it obtained documents from a variety of intelligence agencies, but most of the

records were so heavily censored that they couldn’t be properly evaluated. The FBI provided the most substantive disclosures, although the documents were redacted to withhold names, exact dates and other identifying details, and they don’t say what action was taken to remedy or punish the violations. Nevertheless, the documents “constitute the most complete picture of post-9/11 FBI intelligence abuses available to the public,” says the report, which is to be released Monday but was obtained in advance by the Tribune Washington bureau. “The documents suggest,” the report says, “that FBI intelligence investigations have compromised the civil liberties of American citizens far more frequently, and to a greater extent, than was previously assumed.” In 2007, the Justice Department’s inspector general told Congress that the FBI may have violated the law or government policy as many as 3,000 times since 2003 in the course of se-

cretly collecting telephone, bank and credit card records without warrants, instead using so-called national security letters. As many as 600 of the violations could be “cases of serious misconduct,” Inspector General Glenn A. Fine said, based on his audits. Those figures were far higher than the FBI acknowledged or reported to the oversight board. The violations were largely unintentional, Fine said, but were the result of “mistakes, carelessness, confusion, sloppiness, lack of training, lack of adequate guidance and lack of adequate oversight.” The records obtained by the foundation go beyond national security letters. About one-third of the reports of violations involved rules governing internal oversight of intelligence investigations, and about one- fifth involved potential violations of the Constitution, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act or other laws governing criminal investigations or intelligence-gathering activities, the report says.

Officials identify Moscow bomber MOSCOW — The suicide bomber who killed 35 people in an attack on a Moscow airport last week was a 20-yearold man from the North Caucasus, investigators said Saturday. The mangled body of the man had been identified, a spokesman for the national investigative committee told the news agency Interfax, though he did not give a name. The case had been solved and further suspects were being sought, the spokesman said. About 180 people were injured in Monday’s attack at Domodedovo airport, Moscow’s busiest, dozens of whom were still being treated in hospitals. Immediately after the attack investigators had blamed militant Islamist groups from the North Caucasus — which includes the republics of Chechnya,

In 1974, the UA received state funding to expand the football stadium under the condition no abortions be performed on campus, including at University Medical Center. This agreement continues today even though performing abortions is legal in Arizona. Now the UA has reinforced its ban on marijuana on campus because it’ll lose federal money, thanks to a ban on marijuana on higher education campuses. Apparently, Arizona laws don’t always apply to Arizona universities. For an institution that boasts freethinking and promotes knowledge and the health of its students and faculty, it seems counterintuitive to place restrictions on people who work or go to school here. Why should we be punished? Because the UA cannot risk losing federal money. So, because the school is poor, the federal government can tell students or faculty suffering from debilitating disease or ailment to just suck it up. For not trying harder, the UA gets a fail.


MAILBAG Starbucks not art or entertainment

The article “Mega-quencher battle royale: Starbucks versus convenience stores” (Jan. 26) is completely invalid. Not only is it a complete waste of space in the Wildlife section, but it doesn’t even apply and is poorly written and researched. For one, the picture is larger than the “article” itself, and doesn’t offer much in the way of information. Two, the section of the Wildcat deemed “Wildlife” is labeled as “your guide to the Tucson arts and entertainment scene.” I have absolutely no idea how this article has to do with either arts or entertainment. As far as information goes, it’s near empty of any real information or useful facts. Many of the facts presented in the article are not only wrong, but many are left out. A person with half a brain could tell you the health benefits of coffee and tea over the physically devastating drink that is soda. It shouldn’t take half a page to tell people that the two authors of this article obviously prefer soda when playing video games than coffee and tea. It also shouldn’t take two people to write two paragraphs and do


FBI reports and surveys by the Bureau of Justice Statistics show rape and sexual or dating violence have plummeted among young people. Statistics by the Centers for Disease Control also show that rates of birth, abortion and sexually transmitted diseases among teens have fallen significantly, The New York Times reported. There’s no way to pinpoint why young people are so much better at sex than older generations. It could be the constant procondom culture of the millennial generation or just the vast knowledge and fear of sexually transmitted diseases. Maybe it’s because we don’t have three-day love-fests and swinger parties as much. Regardless, older generations may be able to peg us as crude, rude or annoying, but it’s nice to know we can respond, “Hey, wrap it up grandpa.” As for rape and dating violence, congratulations to the women who kick ass, aren’t afraid to say “No” and stand up for themselves, probably at times with a swift kick to a private area. And thank you to the young men who either can’t get laid and have accepted that, or are acting like gentlemen.

Arizona: Breaking down when we should rebuild


The birther movement hasn’t melted away after all. Forty-one Arizona legislators, all Republican, are sponsoring H.B. 2544. The bill requires presidential and vice-presidential candidates to submit an “original long form birth certificate that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician and signatures of the witnesses in attendance” among other things. Failure to submit these will keep the candidate off Arizona’s ballot. This bill is a legislative distraction from the issues that matter, and an embarrassment on Arizona’s nonsensical list of priorities. While higher education and health care flounder in a statewide economic crisis, 41 Republican legislators can’t get over President Barack Obama’s birthplace? Still? Fail.

hen you lose, don’t lose the lesson. This is a phrase people in the city of Tucson, the state of Arizona, the United States and the world should heed. Unfortunately, in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting, many will continue right on with their lives as though nothing happened. The seams are starting to come undone and soon the whole sweater of good feelings will unravel. The first stitch snapped almost immediately after the shooting. The Tucson community gathered to mourn for those lost or injured, and to embrace the brighter future ahead. Our public figures joined us, we applauded them and then it happened. We turned right back on ourselves and began knocking one another. Some Americans blamed violent political rhetoric as the underlying cause of the attack. Then, we called the methods of mourning in McKale Center an embarrassment. Instead of looking the other way when a few people acted raucously, we had to criticize. Instead of just ignoring foolish political rhetoric that can only be examined in hindsight, we attacked it. Our bitterness is consuming us, and we’re allowing it. On Jan. 28, we tugged at the loose thread some more. Roughly 350 members of the Tucson community gathered outside the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, some to praise Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, others to protest against him. Dupnik infamously expressed his disappointment in the

behavior of the Tucson community and the state at large following the shootings. He concluded that the events were a culmination of unacceptable behavior, making Tucson a “Mecca of prejudice and bigotry.” Of course, scolding a wounded community is not exactly the way to prompt healing. One of his critics, Kathy Armbruster, said that her main opposition was the reflection his comments made on the state of Arizona.

Tucson is not truly lost, but, if we insist upon relentless bickering and tremendous efforts to make life in this community more difficult, we will get nowhere.

H.B. 2014, introduced in late December, would prohibit state universities and colleges from enforcing “any policy or rule that prohibits the possession of a concealed weapon by a person who possesses a valid permit.” When asked, UA President Robert Shelton said, “I am unilaterally, completely opposed to that. When I talk to all the law enforcement officials of Tucson Police Department and the University of Arizona Police Department … they say it’s a bad idea for them.” Campus shootings are tragic, but arming faculty members is just as dangerous as allowing anyone else to carry a weapon. Last February, Professor Amy Bishop brought a gun to the University of Alabama in Huntsville and shot her fellow faculty members. Faculty is not an exception to the rule. Furthermore, police officials have said a situation is more dangerous when they can’t tell who the bad guy is. The argument that if someone comes with a gun they’ll be able to defend themselves is ludicrous. Unless every faculty member is trained and armed in every classroom every day, it is safer, and more efficient, to call the police. This is a place of learning, and students shouldn’t wonder if their professor is packing heat and might snap at the next question. Therefore, Shelton gets a pass for defending a weapon-free campus policy.

“(Dupnik’s comments) makes it sound like we’re such a horrible state with such awful people. We need someone who likes Arizona,” Armbruster said. I’m not sure he would still be here if he honestly didn’t like Arizona. Unfortunately, whether Dupnik likes or doesn’t like Arizona is not the issue. When someone calls us out for ostracizing people, perhaps we ought to evaluate that, and calculate our reaction appropriately. Our response can’t be to cast them out as some sort of traitor. That sounds counterproductive. If we want to truly

show people what a rich and wholesome community we are, we’re certainly headed in the wrong direction. The reality is that we all lost something on Jan. 8. We lost the lives of our neighbors and we lost our assurance in ourselves. We lost confidence that we were reasonable people living in a reasonable and healthy environment where we could all feel safe and treat each other with respect and kindness. It is in times like these that our seemingly never-ending battle with one another has to stop. If you want to stand up for what you believe in, fine, but getting aggressive is not the answer. Maybe Dupnik spoke out of turn, maybe he was right. Maybe we are just incessantly confrontational, looking for the next big issue to fight. Who knows, but going after him right now is certainly not going to bring us together. Those of us living in this community have felt the political pressures of S.B. 1070, the elections, budget deficits and this traumatic shooting. Before we reach for our protest signs, we ought to re-evaluate ourselves and how our community got to this boiling point. Having lived here for only a short period of time, I know that Tucson is not truly lost, but, if we insist upon relentless bickering and tremendous efforts to make life in this community more difficult, we will get nowhere. There will be things we disagree on, but when times like this are upon us, we all need to reach out and pull together. The answer can’t simply be “not a chance.” If we respond like that we will we lose the lesson, toil away and allow ourselves to brand our community as one always needing something to squabble about. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore.

policebeat By Alexander Vega Arizona Daily Wildcat

Student blesses officer before leap

A University of Arizona Police Department officer conducted what was expected to be an ordinary traffic stop on Wednesday at 8 a.m. The officer pulled the vehicle over on Mountain Avenue and Second Street for driving over 200 feet in a bike lane. The driver, a male UA student, pulled his vehicle over and the officer began to issue a citation to the student for driving in a designated bike lane. Meanwhile, the student sat on the roof of his vehicle. When the officer asked the student to sign the citation, the student jumped down from the vehicle and signed the citation and threw it in the window of the vehicle. The student then told the officer, “God bless you,” and jumped over the parking garage rail to the ground 15 feet below. The officer informed other UAPD officers about the student’s erratic behavior and to check up on him. Witnesses said that they saw the student run into the Student Union Memorial Center, uninjured, but still acting strangely. Officers were not able to make contact with the student again.

Parked pervert pulling his pud

An unknown man was observed masturbating in his pick-up truck in a parking lot on Vine Avenue on Tuesday at 3:52 p.m. A UAPD officer responded to a woman calling in who observed the public exposure. The woman said that she had parked her car at 3:50 p.m. and then noticed a red pick-up truck with its door ajar as she was walking by. As she walked by, she saw the man sitting in the driver’s seat of the truck masturbating. The man was smiling at her while doing it. “You’re disgusting!” yelled the woman. As the woman walked away she said that she heard the man laughing. The woman observed the truck leave the lot and head south on Vine Avenue. The officer initiated an area search with the description from the woman of the suspect. No matching truck or person was found. The woman wished to press charges in case the man is found.

Harassing emails sent to former lover’s coworkers

A UA employee received several harassing emails from a former boyfriend between Jan. 23 and 25. The employee contacted a UAPD officer on Wednesday at 3:37 p.m. regarding the emails. She said that a majority of the emails received were technically off-campus and therefore the jurisdiction of the Tucson Police Department. However, she also said that the man has sent emails to her coworkers at UA. The employee said that she had met the man through an online dating service in the summer of 2010. The employee described a long-distance relationship that was “growing.” After the holidays, the employee gave the man a copy of her house keys. The man talked about moving to Tucson from his home in Texas. The two split after the employee told the man that she was going to go out with a girlfriend on Jan. 22. On Jan. 23, the man sent the employee a text message ending the relationship. The employee hasn’t directly contacted the man, but the man has sent many emails to the employee’s friends, family and UA coworkers accusing the employee of disturbing acts. The man accused the employee of being involved in drug deals and having a hand in killing a former lover. The employee was concerned because her family and coworkers are worried about the false statements. She did not feel in physical danger from the man, but the officer still advised the employee to change the locks in her home. The officer also advised the employee to inform UA Human Resources because of the emails being sent to coworkers. The officer notified the employee that the case would be a public assist, but that TPD would have primary jurisdiction in charging the man.

PELL GRANT continued from page 1

dances and parties on campus that everyone can come to … so we really wanted to bring everyone together,” said Justin Evans, a political science freshman and member of the Activities Board. Glow sticks were handed out as students walked in to the black-light area in the Games Room of the student union. Club House DJ blasted music as neon lights flittered about the room. Matt Dawson, a theatre production sophomore who helped run the event, said he sent text messages to his friends in order to get the word out. “We advertise sometimes, through the digital televisions in the student union, and also through flyers and table toppers.” He said the cost of putting on the Techno Glow Rave was about $1,500, which came out of the University Activities Board budget. Geneva Baruelo, a freshman majoring in molecular and cellular biology, had never been to

a rave before. Baruelo attended the Techno Glow Rave with her friend Karyn Vo, an anthropology freshman. Vo heard about the event through an invite on Facebook. Students, with the help of advisers, planned the event and it took a couple of months to come to fruition, according to Jessica Berger, president of the University Activities Board and psychology junior. “It’s something fun for students to do on a Friday night, especially for those who live in the dorms,” Berger said. Students had options besides dancing. The student-run comedy troupe Comedy Corner performed for free in the Cellar Bistro and students were able to view a screening of “Jackass 3D” for $1 at the Gallagher Theater. Dawson added that they are looking to bring Dan Sperry, a magician who has appeared on the show “America’s Got Talent,” to the UA on Feb. 11.

Nametz said. The maximum award amount for a Pell Grant has increased about 28 percent since 2008 and went from $4,331 to $5,550, according to the U.S. Department of Education. The average award amount is also up about 31 percent since 2008, increasing from $2,945 to $3,865. Sapien is a first-generation college student and receives the Pell Grant and other grants through the Arizona Assurance program. The program provides mentorship opportunities and other assistance for students who qualify for the Pell Grant. She said she has avoided most loans due to the grant and a large change would negatively affect students. “I see how it helps everybody, and my life would be different without it,” Sapien said. “But I also see it as the economic side, and we do need that money in other places.” The grant is especially helpful for students who are reluctant to take out loans and otherwise may not attend college, according to Nametz.

also said she was unconcerned about the potential policy change because she doesn’t “think the universities will reach that 40 percent cap any time soon.” “I think I would be concerned if there’s a huge push to enroll more out-of-state students,” Delic said. “If something like that were to happen, then we would take a more official stance on the issue.” Approximately 31,659 UA students received some form of financial aid in the fiscal year 2009, with 21,506, more than half, receiving institutional aid. This includes 705 students who received the Regents High Honors Endorsement (Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards) tuition waiver. In fall 2008, 2,632 non-resident students were awarded aid, with Pell Grant-eligible students receiving an average aid package of $14,777, and non Pell Grant-eligible students earning, on average, $7,519, according to a report from the board of regents. Nametz said financial aid at the UA was a “$20 million payroll” for students, and the UA tries

“We won’t see them at the university or maybe not anywhere in higher education,” he said. These awards could be reduced under the new resolution, though they may be protected in the new budget. “President Obama is expected to make Pell Grants a mandatory spending program in his budget,” said Jake Stillwell, communications director for the United States Student Association. “Even if the freeze was instituted, the Pell Grant wouldn’t be affected.” Nametz said maintaining current award amounts is important because even minimal cuts could affect student success by reducing their ability to purchase textbooks or other necessary supplies. “I would hate to see it, and I hope it does not happen,” he said. A reduction in spending could affect higher education even if Pell Grants are left unchanged. States depend on support from the federal government to fund universities, Stillwell said. “Even though the resolution is toothless, states have already been cutting budgets with money from the federal government,” he said.

to offer as much financial aid not in the form of loans or work study as possible. Nametz also said his office does not consider residency as a criteria for most institutional financial aid. “In my office, we select the smartest, the best students that we know can help other students (for financial aid),” Nametz said. “We don’t even look at if they’re an Arizona resident or a non-resident for our aid, and as far as loans go (residency) is irrelevant.” The Arizona Board of Regents will officially vote on the issue during their meeting from Feb. 17 to 18 on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

this will aid large classes to better serve student needs. Associate professor of astronomy Edward Prather’s beginning astronomy class, which he teaches to around 800 students, utilizes ranked tasks and interactive lectures to enhance student learning. These techniques have been shown to boost introductory science knowledge of incoming freshmen from the average 25 to 30 percent to as high as 80 percent after several lectures. “My promise to students is: ‘If you guys work hard and do the tasks and get in a debate when I’m asking you to defend your answer, you’ll know more astronomy than any other student in the country does,’” Prather said of his classes. Even with larger class sizes, the UA had four of the top-performing astronomy classes, according to a study by Physics Today. Prather’s class is one of four taught in Centennial Hall, the largest classroom available on campus. Teachers get together to discuss what works best for larger class learning, according to Lynette Cook-Francis, assistant vice president of Student Affairs. “We realized there were some issues with course availability and we didn’t want that to be a barrier for students,” Cook-Francis said. “We put those classes in there to free up the pipeline where students get stuck. The Provost’s Office will continue to look where the clogs in the pipelines are.” Cook-Francis works specifically with instructors in Centennial Hall classes.

Geosciences professor George Gehrels took classes in Centennial Hall during his undergraduate studies at the UA 30 years ago. CookFrancis said Gehrels feels excited about utilizing the venue in a way to prove that, with the right teacher, the environment is inconsequential to how much students learn. “He really believes that the venue has some promise with the right kind of faculty,” CookFrancis said. Centennial Hall professors have usually already taught classes of 400 to 500 students. Cook-Francis said the UA is implementing new programs to aid students in large venues, such as testing in the Gallagher Theater, where students can sign up for an hour block during a set time period to take tests in a “environment that is more easily proctored.” The UA is also utilizing community retirees as adjunct proctors to monitor students in large classrooms and funding interaction grants, which allow faculty to have time outside of the classroom with students to provide individualized attention. Especially with budget concerns, larger classes can mean more students taught with less teacher pay. “Engaging 50 students and engaging 1,000 students is really different,” Cook-Francis said. “Nothing happens in the Centennial Hall classroom that doesn’t happen in any classroom. The classes that are very large magnify the classroom experience — the good things about the class and the bad things about the class.”

How does it feel to be an exact replica of Tyra Banks? Wow … it feels great. I look exactly like her. I could be the best thing that ever happened to UA. How are you exactly like her, as dramatic as she is? I am definitely into “smizing” and am really good at it. I am starting to get better than her. Because now that she became fat and stuff, I can just take over America’s Next Top Model. What is “smizing”? It’s the thing she does with her eyes. She is infamous for it. If Tyra had two photos left in her hands and she didn’t give one of them to you, what would happen? I would throw a beep fit. When was the last time you threw a legitimate tantrum? Yesterday, when I did not get the shirt I wanted at the Creation Store on Fourth Avenue. They tried over charging me and I got really mad. Are you a natural born diva? Naturally, it runs in the family. When was the last time you did something embarrassing that did not really go with your diva attitude? I ran my bike into a pole and then I pretended to be on the phone so people would think that was why I ran into the pole.

Professor accused of urinating on colleague’s door

A California university professor videotaped urinating on a colleague’s office door may be a scholar, but he’s no gentleman, prosecutors say. Tihomir Petrov, a 43-year-old math instructor at California State University, Northridge, has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of urinating in a public place. Investigators allege the urination violations occurred in December and were a direct result of a dispute Petrov was involved in with another math professor. College officials set up a hidden

camera near the co-worker’s door in Santa Susanna Hall after suspicious puddles were found in front of it, the Los Angeles Times reported. The camera captured Petrov in the act of relieving himself, officials said. “We will not be releasing the surveillance tape as it is evidence in the ongoing trial,” university spokeswoman Carmen RamosChandler told The Daily Sundial. Petrov’s attorney, Garret Weinrieb, appeared on behalf of his client in San Fernando Superior Court on Thursday. The defendant was

His arraignment has been rescheduled for March 3. “At this point, as in the case of any other criminal matter, we’re gathering all the evidence so we can properly evaluate the case and proceed forward from there,” Weinrieb said. “It’s not being treated any differently from any other criminal matter.” Calls to Petrov’s office phone went unanswered today, and he did not immediately return emails requesting comment. — AOL News

House’s late basket pushes Heat past Thunder McClatchy Tribune OKLAHOMA CITY — Among the most common insults hurled at Miami Heat forward LeBron James since he became vilified was critics calling him selfish. That was the last thing on the mind of his teammates Sunday afternoon. James showed he could be selfless when he passed up an open look and found guard Eddie House for a late 3-pointer that was key in the Heat’s 108-103 victory against Oklahoma City. The play was big enough to overshadow the return of guard Dwyane Wade and forward Chris Bosh to the starting lineup. “We’ve had significant progress in the last two games executing our offense with players under duress to find the best available shot,” Heat coach

Erik Spoelstra said. “I found it most fitting that we ended up with a trust play for Eddie House.” Wade, who missed Friday’s game against the Detroit Pistons because of a bruised wrist, returned to lead the Heat with 32 points. After missing four games with a sprained left ankle, Bosh had 20 points and seven rebounds. But it was James and House connecting when it counted that sent the Heat to their second consecutive victory, arguably the most impressive of the season. The Thunder, a rising team in the Western Conference, held momentum after quickly erasing an eight-point deficit midway through the fourth quarter. Their surge was completed when forward Kevin Durant, who led all scorers with 33 points, hit a jumper from the top of the key to give Oklahoma City a

103-102 lead with 34.3 seconds remaining. The Heat, who entered 3-8 in games decided by five points or less, were staring at another close loss. “We kind of could tell from the beginning of the game, it was going to be one of those games that come down to the end,” Wade said. “Coach said at halftime it was going to come down to the end, who was going to make the plays. And I thought we made the plays to win the ballgame and that’s all that matters.” Many cited trust in teammates as the main factor for the late-game struggles. For one day, the Heat eliminated those thoughts. It started with what James did on the next possession. After Wade missed a jumper just inside the 3-point arc, forward Mike Miller grabbed the rebound.

Miller quickly passed to James, who had an open look. He instead hesitated, taking his time and found House on the wing. The shot put the Heat ahead for good with 22.2 seconds left, silencing the crowd of 18,203 at Oklahoma City Arena. “He could’ve took the shot, but at the same time that shows trust in his teammates,” House said. “I got a good look at it.” It was House’s only basket of the game. He scored the last of his five points after he was fouled with the Heat holding a three-point lead. He hit two free throws to put the game away. “Besides some turnovers, we executed down the stretch and it is that trust that we had in each other that helped us win this game,” James said. “It was good to finally just have our full group.”

Packers feeling prepared heading into Super Bowl McClatchy Tribune GREEN BAY, Wis. — Any story is enhanced when the motives of the main characters remain suspect. This is one of those stories. Nearly five months ago, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his offensive linemen showed up for a Green Bay Chamber of Commerce luncheon wearing cowboy hats. The players say it was all in fun, a harmless release between the drudgery of training camp and the start of a long regular season. They swear it was not a declaration of their intent to usurp the dream of a certain owner or a prediction that they would play in Cowboys Stadium in Super Bowl XLV. “A bunch of Cowboys back in (September), and now we’re heading down to Dallas,” Packers right guard Josh Sitton said. “I think it’s pretty cool.” Cool doesn’t begin to describe Green Bay’s journey. It certainly doesn’t give a sense of the confidence the Packers carry into this game with Pittsburgh. The players don’t feel they’ve captured lightning in a bottle — or a cowboy hat for that matter. Green Bay knows it belongs in this game. Charles Woodson has been in the NFL for 13 seasons. The Pro Bowl cornerback said he’s never felt better about a team than this one. Veteran receiver Donald Driver takes it one step further.

“We know that no one can beat us but ourselves,” he said. “That’s been a proven fact all season long.” Green Bay’s 10-6 record during the regular season isn’t all that impressive. This is: The Packers haven’t lost a game by more than four points. They have not trailed a regular-season or playoff game by more than seven points. Green Bay is the only team since the merger 40 years ago to make that claim. Coach Mike McCarthy hasn’t been shy. He voiced his belief during the off-season that this could be a Super Bowl team and never backed off. The players followed his lead. Safety Nick Collins said this group preached Super Bowl from Day One. This confidence was actually born in the second half of last season when the Packers averaged 30.7 points and won seven of their final eight games before suffering a wild 51-45 defeat to Arizona in the wild-card round. “We felt like we had an opportunity last year to go all the way and fell a little short,” Collins said. “We just came in with the mind-set that we can go all the way, and everybody bought in.” “We feel like we’re a razor-sharp team as far as the level of play that we’ve been bringing to the table here the last month,” McCarthy said. They’ve earned the right to wear those cowboy hats.

Is it true you can take two regular birth control pills as emergency contraception?

A. Two tablets out of a monthly pack is not a high enough dose for effective Emergency Contraception (EC). Some oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) require taking four pills “now” and four pills 12 hours later. Each brand of birth control has very specific instructions to follow for EC use, if applicable, depending on the type and strength of hormone(s) used. For a helpful list of options and instructions for using OCPs as EC, go to When a woman has unprotected sex (no condom or no birth control method used), taking an approved “morning after pill,” is a good course of action to reduce the chance of pregnancy. Plan B and Next Choice brands of emergency contraception contain progestin. This hormone works by inhibiting ovulation and/or implantation of a fertilized egg. When taken within 72 hours (3 days) of a single act of unprotected intercourse, EC can reduce pregnancy risk by 75-89%. The sooner EC is taken, the higher its effectiveness. EC works best in the first 24 hours. It will not end a pregnancy if the fertilized egg has implanted

in the wall of the uterus. Plan B and Next Choice do not require a prescription and can be bought at pharmacies by men and women, 17 or older. Consider keeping a dose on hand... just in case. The cost for EC at the UA Campus Health Service is $35. At Walgreens the cost is $49-$53. While EC is a helpful option, especially in cases of sexual assault, unplanned or unprotected sex, it is not nearly as effective as the consistent use of hormonal birth control methods. Oral contraceptive pills, the NuvaRing, Implanon, and Depo-Provera are 9899.7% effective in preventing pregnancy. EC is intended only for emergencies and should not be used as a regular method of birth control. Side effects may include nausea, abdominal pain, and menstrual changes. “Ella,” a new brand of EC containing the drug ulipristal acetate, was approved by the FDA in August 2010. Entering U.S. markets in 2011, Ella is available by prescription only, and is more effective (for up to 5 days) than the progestin-only methods.

Wildcats eliminated By Zack Rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat The men’s tennis team had a rough experience at the ITA Kick-off Weekend. After starting the tournament with a hard fought loss to No. 44 Miami, the Wildcats’ weekend in Texas came to a sickening conclusion. Set to face Mississippi State yesterday, the team was forced to default after coming down with a virus. “The team got slammed with a nasty virus,” head coach Tad Berkowitz told Arizona Athletics. “Most of the team was up all night. This has never happened in my coaching career. I feel terrible for the guys. There was no way in good conscious that myself or (assistant coach) Tom (Lloyd) could put these guys out on the court.” The weekend ended poorly, but in Saturday’s match against the Hurricanes the Wildcats kept the match close throughout, eventually falling 4-3 at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center in College Station, Texas. While no loss can be considered “good,” there were certainly a lot of positives to take out of the match. “We played hard but Miami just got us at the end,” Berkowitz said. “This match will only make us tougher as the season continues on.” Stud freshman Giacomo Miccini finally made his Wildcat debut after sitting out the opening match against the University of California, Riverside. Miccini opened the match in the No. 1 doubles position alongside senior Jay Goldman. The duo played the Hurricanes’ Keith Crowley and Christian Blocker, and in a match that at one point was tied 7-7, the Hurricanes pulled out the 8-6 victory. Luckily, the Wildcats ended up winning the

HOOPS continued from page 12 place midway through conference play last season, their overall record was 12-9. This season, Arizona holds an 18-4 record overall and has been ranked already — something that never happened last season. “So far, I think we played some good basketball,” Miller said. “You can talk about the Oregon State game, but we’ve also won a couple of those close games.” So what is the difference with this year’s team compared to last year’s team? “We’re a team of depth,” Miller said. “We’re a team that really depends on 10 guys.”

Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Junior Jason Zafiros, above, and Andre Vidaller won their doubles match in Arizona’s 4-3 loss to Miami during the weekend. The Wildcats were forced to default their match against Mississippi State on Sunday due to a team-wide virus.

doubles point with wins from Andres Carrasco and Borja Malo, and Jason Zafiros and Andre Vidaller. The Wildcats did not prove so lucky in the singles portion, dropping four matches to the Hurricanes. In his first singles match as a Wildcat, Miccini lost both sets by scores of 6-4. The doubles point, alongside victories by Zafiros and Goldman, would be all the points the Wildcats would get in the 4-3 loss.

Arizona completed the first half of its Pac-10 schedule with an impressive sweep of the Southern California schools and finished 7-2 in conference play. At this point last season, the Wildcats were 6-3 in the Pac-10 and 12-9 overall. A year ago the Wildcats sat in first place in a much weaker Pac-10 but were unable to play as well in the second half of the Pac-10 schedule. This season, in the second half, the test for Arizona will be to play well enough to become a tournament team. “We just have to mature as the season goes,” said forward Kevin Parrom. “We just can’t let up. We have to be aggressive and just continue to play strong.”

On the women’s side, the Wildcats traveled to California to play both Cal State Northridge and Loyola Marymount University this past weekend. The Wildcats defeated both schools in California this time last season. One year later, the result was the same. The Wildcats defeated Loyola Marymount on Friday 4-3 and followed that up with a 5-2 victory over Cal State Northridge. The Wildcats travel back to California on Friday to face Fresno State.

roy continued from page 12 “U of A fans seem to think that bowing to Williams will make him stick around. He’s as good as gone given this year ’s draft dearth (sic).” Now that’s probably the case of homer beat writers on a college newspaper — they do exist some places not as talented as here — but it got me thinking: Why can’t fans just enjoy Williams for what he’s doing right now? In a culture so fixated on knowing tomorrow’s trending topic on Twitter, it’s too easy not to enjoy Williams for his face value. For those in McKale Center at the UCLA game, you felt the accumulation of chills unleash after every dunk and ensuing roar of joy. A rubberband alley-oops jam. A sledgehammer into the rim. A 360-degree pivot then two-handed jam. All of them infused adrenaline into McKale Center. For those in McKale at the Southern California game, you saw an athlete fight through foul trouble and a pinky injury to still lead the Wildcats in scoring. He dropped 20 points on a bad night. He’s the complete opposite of soft. (As USC’s Nikola Vucevic would say, Williams doesn’t

W-HOOPS continued from page 12 basketball.” For UCLA, team leaders Jasmine Dixon and Darxia Morris continued their dominance, scoring 22 and 13 points, respectively. Bruin forward Atonye Nyingifa also racked up a double-double for her team with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Ibekwe led the Wildcats in scoring with 18 points and was followed by Davellyn Whyte,


“play like a woman.”) He’s the complete definition of hustle. “We thought he was going to be a little bit slower because of his hand so the rest of us would have to step up. But luckily, Derrick was still Derrick,” UA guard Kyle Fogg said Saturday. “It didn’t slow him down at all. It actually worked out in our favor because Derrick was playing well and the rest of us had that attacking mentality.” As of Sunday morning, lists him as the No. 2 overall pick behind Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger, giving the Timberwolves a stacked backcourt of ex-UCLA stud Kevin Love and Williams. Williams would certainly earn a pretty penny and avoid the risk of injury that a junior season at Arizona could entail. And someday it might be Blake Griffin who’s “pulling a Derrick Williams” in reference to dunks that have no regard for human life. But for now, it’s hard not to enjoy the attitude and demeanor Williams brings every night. There’s something authentic about his humbled approach. There’s something authentic about his willingness to win. Will Williams leave college early for the NBA Draft? The (bleep) if I know. The (bleep) if you should care right now. — Bryan Roy is an interdisciplinary studies senior. He can be reached at

who contributed 14. Guard Shanita Arnold also scored in double digits with 10 points. As the Wildcats lick their wounds to rebound at home — where they haven’t lost all season — they don’t have the comfort of facing the conference bottom feeder Washington schools this week like they did last weekend. Arizona will need to seek retribution as the California Golden Bears and Stanford Cardinal take their talents to Tucson.

Gymcats continued from page 12 Devils. Against the Broncos, however, Russell scored a 9.825 on the vault and bar events and posted a 9.850 during the floor event. “Well, I feel like it’s a step in the right direction. (I) redeemed myself a little bit, but there are still some things to improve,” Russell said. “I think that we came together tonight as a team more than we have done in awhile. Everyone was excited and we really just did what we were supposed to do.” The final score was not the only thing improved from last week. The entire team’s demeanor changed. Coming out last week in front of the first home crowd of the season, the anxiousness could be seen on the gymcats’ faces, and it showed during their routines. “They finally got those nerves out,” said assistant coach Randi Acosta. “There’s still a little bit (of nerves) on beam but they really are pushing through and fighting through everything.” Arizona knows it still has a lot of work to do to get to where it wants to be. The gymcats struggled during the beam event when a lot of the Wildcats wobbled during their routines. “We all have things that we need to improve on,” Russell said. “We know that this was just a mediocre night. It wasn’t our best. I’m kind of excited about that.”

Arizona forward Jesse Perry fights for a rebound in the Wildcats’ 82-73 win over Southern California on Saturday in McKale Center. Perry’s toughness and rebounding abilities will be key as Arizona tries to close games more efficiently down the stretch.

What’s Inside:

People ask me this all the time. You’ve heard it too. “What are you doing after you graduate?” Most reply with: “The (bleep) if I know.” Everybody wants to know the next big thing. It’s wired into our wireless culture. Who’s going to make the next $1 million? Who’s our next president? Who’s the next Michael Jordan ? Who’s the next LeBron James ? Who’s the next Charlie Sheen? You wonder about this Arizona basketball program. Who’s the next big recruit? When can they make a Final Four run? Will Derrick Williams go to the NBA Draft? That last one is asked a lot lately. Williams is an NBA Draft lottery lock and all the humble kid can do is shrug off those questions and continue to salute the ZonaZoo after SportsCenter Top 10-caliber dunks.

By Dan Kohler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It’s obvious now that the Arizona women’s basketball team is not welcome in the state of California. After a dismal trip to northern California two weeks ago, with losses to both Cal and Stanford, the Wildcats were hoping to receive better results in the southern part of the state. The southern California sun, however, was only shining on the hometown favorites, as Arizona once again limped home to Tucson after a 70-60 loss against No. 10 UCLA on Saturday in Los Angeles capped off another disappointing road series for the Wildcats. Despite a strong effort on the offensive side, Arizona (13-7, 4-5 Pacific 10 Conference) couldn’t get back on defense to counter the Bruins (18-2, 8-1 Pac-10) quick attack in its fifth-straight conference road loss. Arizona head coach Niya Butts said she was proud of her team’s offensive push but summed up the Wildcats’ glaring weakness throughout the game rather easily. “We were just getting dominated on the boards, they were more physical than us,” she said. “We just got pushed out of the way, and we just got man handled on the boards.” The numbers don’t lie: the Bruins managed to pull 48 rebounds compared to a meager 24 for Arizona. Twenty-six of the Bruins’ boards came in the first half, while the Wildcats could only bring in eight by the halftime buzzer. Even Arizona’s star foward Ify Ibekwe, who leads the conference in rebounds with almost 10 per game, was held to just three. The Wildcats came out of the

Winners but not closers The Arizona basketball team completed an impressive sweep of the Southern California schools but may have developed a bad habit in the process. Sean Miller called it a great weekend for Tucson but was concerned with the way his team closed out both games. On Saturday, the Wildcats led the Trojans by 20 with 2:11 left in the game but only ended up winning by nine points in the end. On Thursday against UCLA, the Wildcats led by as many as 18 but allowed the Bruins to get within eight with less than five minutes remaining. “Kind of like déjà vu from Thursday, we’re not a mature, responsible team,” Miller said after his team defeated USC 82-73 on Saturday. “It shows up at the end, we will lose on the road or in a closer game because of the problem we experience near the end of the game. We don’t finish it off.” So exactly why haven’t the Wildcats been able to finish? “It takes a lot to give teams a 10-0 (run). It takes turnover, score, turnover, score. It takes guys running through screens not being responsible,” Miller said. “We’re going to fight through that. Hopefully, we don’t have to learn that lesson with a loss.” Despite having issues with finishing the last two games, the Wildcats did win both contests and are in a better position halfway through the Pacific 10 Conference schedule than they were a year ago.

@R0bG0lden “Jamba Juice shouldn’t let new workers start mixing drinks until a weeks worth of training.. messed my drank all up… #pissed” NFL-hopeful Ricky Elmore proved it takes more than a bench-press to be an animal: @RickyElmore44 “Yoga + Pilates = good recovery day”

Cornerback Robert Golden revealed his true professional aspirations: @R0bG0lden “If I can get the #manvsfood job… ill be the happiest man on earth..”

Dunking-sensation Derrick Williams attempted to branch his following to the rap game: @Bigdthatsme23 “Yo @ RealWizKhalifa Espn 7pm tonight… Me and Momo rockin black n yellow tonight! Tune in!”

Senior Ify Ibekwe, known for her rebounding, was held to just three boards in Arizona’s 70-60 loss to UCLA on Saturday. The Wildcats’ inability to consistently grab rebounds doomed them against the Bruins.

It then turned into the UCLA rebounding display, with Arizona unable to come up with any response. Even with its defensive woes, Arizona’s offense continued to push throughout the entire con-

The Arizona gymnastics team looked calm, focused and motivated as it attempted to redeem itselves from a flawed meet last week. The Wildcats bested the No. 14 Boise State Broncos in a backand-forth meet that the Wildcats won by 0.975 points. “The team has a lot of pride, and they knew they didn’t perform up to expectations,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “It was almost like the excitement of the first meet is over and now it is business.
