UA diversity celebrated
Students, families go global at Family Weekend Wildcat World Fair
By Abigail Richardson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
lubs celebrated their diverse cultures at the Wildcat World Fair on Friday. The Wildcat World Fair took place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and had booths for clubs on the UA Mall allowing visitors to explore what the fair had to offer. “The goal of the Wildcat World Fair is generally to raise student awareness about how diverse the UA is and to celebrate those different cultures,” said James Vancel , director of the Wildcat World Fair and an international studies senior. “My job as the director, which is a position within ASUA,
was coordinating all the different clubs, getting the clubs involved, all the logistical stuff like the tents, facilities and the health permits.” The Seven Pipers UA Scottish Club performed during the Wildcat World Fair. “We are trying to gain new members and show everyone
that the Scottish club is present on campus,” said Brenna Ward , the president of the club. “This is our third year at the fair.” There were nine performances ranging from Ward’s Scottish bagpipe procession to a traditional Japanese archery show.
One reason UA tuition increased was to fund sustainability efforts on campus, and now that money is beginning to be put to use. The recently formed studentled Green Fund Committee will have $400,000 of that money to allocate to campus sustainability projects. A transition team convened by UA President Robert Shelton over the summer created the Green Fund Committee in response to the Arizona Board of Regents approving sustainability funding in March. Lon Huber, Green Fund Committee chair from the Graduate and Professional Student Council was one of the students on the team. “It was really a collaborate effort between students, faculty and the administration,” Huber said. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona appointed Sen. Chad Travis, as its vice chair for the Green Fund Committee. ASUA will have three members in addition to the vice chair and GPSC will GREEN, page 3
Eco-Reps clean up Families celebrate Hispanic heritage park WORLD FAIR, page 3
By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students, families and alumni celebrated Hispanic culture before the football game Saturday. The UA Hispanic Alumni Club hosted a tailgate fiesta in honor of Hispanic Heritage Day. The organization holds the event every year for a few hundred members of the UA community. “This year it coincides with Family Weekend, which is great,” said Aarón Almada, Homecoming and Hispanic Heritage Day chair for the UA Hispanic Alumni Club. Streamers and piñatas decorated the tailgating tent, while a disc jockey played mariachi music. Attendees could purchase Mexican food and bilingual children’s books. “(The event) just highlights Hispanic culture at the UA,” said Janis Gallego, special events chair for the UA Hispanic Alumni Club. UA student groups Mariachi Arizona and Grupo Folklorico Miztontli later performed music and dances. The students, along with high school groups, also performed at the football game. “Because it’s Family Weekend, we’re highlighting UA groups,” said Patsy Klein, who organized the mariachi groups and folk dancers. “It’s always fun.” Student volunteers said the

UA student groups Mariachi Arizona and Grupo Folklorico Miztontli perform traditional Hispanic dances during halftime of the UA vs. Oregon State football game on Saturday. The performance was a part of Hispanic Heritage Day, which also included a tailgate fiesta before the game.
fiesta was an entertaining display of culture. “It brings us back to our roots and reminds us of where we come from,” said Itzel Rodriguez, a sophomore majoring in math and biology. Spanish sophomore Paloma Garcia said she enjoyed the cultural unity at the event. “It gives you a place at the university, too,” Garcia said. The fiesta provided families
with a fun event before the football game. “My parents are going to come later,” Rodriguez said. “I really enjoy that they’re doing this the same weekend.” Jim and Elvia Wright came from Greer, Ariz., to visit their daughter, accounting junior Johanna Wright, for Family Weekend. The three attended the fiesta before the football game. “Where we come from, you

don’t see any activities with culture,” Jim Wright said. “It’s nice.” Elvia Wright said she was glad the event coincided with their visit. “It’s a very good connection,” she said. Johanna Wright said college is so chaotic that she can forget to focus on her heritage. “I think events like this are good to keep the culture mixed with college,” Johanna Wright said. “And parents help with that.”
UA Eco-Reps cleaned up a park for 10/10/10, the “Global Work Party,” for the environment. There were 7,347 events in 188 countries organized by 350. org on Sunday. The Eco-Reps, a part of the Residence Life Sustainability Program, cleaned up Himmel Park and ate vegetarian for a day in honor of the event. Julia Kard, Eco-Rep president and pre-veterinary science sophomore, chose Himmel Park because she enjoyed a Recyclemania event held there last year. “It was just kind of a nice way to get out and enjoy the environment and help clean it up a little bit because that is what 10/10/10 is hoping to do is show legislators that we need to clean up the environment,” Kard said. The Eco-Reps chose to eat vegetarian for a day because it significantly reduces the amount of carbon that is released into the environment, Kard said. The diet shift was a challenging experience for some of the Eco-Reps. “My family was in town and everybody in my family is huge meat eaters,” said Constance McNamara, Eco-Reps marketing manager and nutritional sciences ECO-REPS, page 3

New question: Did you attend the Wildcat World Fair?
News Tips 621-3193
pre-business sophomore Now that the parents are gone, how are you feeling? I am feeling a bit anguished. Parents’ weekend is an event I look forward to. I mean who doesn’t love their parents? I’m sure there are some out there that don’t but anyways … did you feel that the parents literally took over U of A? I did. They were everywhere, at the bars, at the clubs, at the frats, even in classes. Did your parents attend any of your classes? No, but I did take them to Chick-fil-A because I am there almost every day. Eight-piece nuggets with waffle fries? I am all about the nuggets with the honeybarbeque sauce. So how do you feel about partying with parents, because I noticed it is a pretty popular activity to partake in nowadays? At first I thought it was a little weird, but I mean my dad was mingling with all my friends and I think it brought them back to their college years. They were a little nostalgic seeing everyone go crazy. Do you feel like these are the glory days of your life? College is a time like no other. I mean, basically we are adults, like we have all the freedom and none of the responsibility, I mean, aside from a couple midterms and six-page papers here and there. In the wise words of Sam Adams, “I hate college but love all the parties.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? God, I don’t know. Rich with a couple hundred pets I guess. What kind of pets? Tons of dogs, obviously a couple cats and just a ton of animals. I love animals. Would you rather live in a $10 million house or have 10 million animals? Ten million animals? I mean I love animals but that is kind of a lot. If I could have 10 precious dogs of my choice I would have that over a $10 million house because I can easily find someone to build me a $10 million house. Really, how? There are a lot of wealthy men out there with nothing to do with their money. I don’t want to sound like a gold digger, but I’m just saying living in a $10 million house is a dream that anyone can make a reality if they really want to. Where there is a will there is way. — Caroline Nachazel

3-D fail for Harry Potter
It looks like the planned 3-D release of the Harry Potter grand finale (well, the first part at least) is kaput. A press release put out on Friday states, “Warner Bros. Pictures (owned by Time Warner, the owner of CNN) has made the decision to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1” in 2-D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3-D version of the film within our release date window.”
This will almost certainly be a disappointment for fans of the movies, especially those who have seen the last few in IMAX 3-D. The release goes on to say, “Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality.” Earlier Potter releases included several scenes in 3-D for IMAX theaters, but this time trailers and ads for the film promised the entire movie in 3-D, perhaps in response
to the success of “Avatar” last year. This news could conceivably boost Disney’s “Tron Legacy” and “Tangled,” DreamWorks’ “Megamind” and 20th Century Fox’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” and “Gulliver’s Travels” during the holiday movie season. All five of these will be released in 3-D, with “Tron” becoming the highprofile 3-D release of the season. — CNN.com

freshman. “We had lunch at Highland Market and it was kind of hard to find something to stay vegetarian.” Erik Delich, Eco-Rep and psychology freshman, attempted being vegan in the past but still found being vegetarian for a day challenging. “It becomes like a natural impulse where it’s like, ‘I’m going to get a burger, oh wait, I can’t,’” Delich said. The group also went out to dinner after cleaning up the park. Kard said they wanted to experience how sometimes it is difficult to be vegetarian at a restaurant but there is always an option and it can be easy. On Monday the Eco-Reps plan to write letters to legislators to let them know about the event. “(We want) to kind of hopefully push them in the direction of being eco-friendly and actually being proactive about it instead of just saying eventually it will happen,” McNamara said, “because stuff like global warming, like the oil spill and our effect on the ecosystem is happening now. It’s not something that is going to happen, it is something that we need to take care of now before it gets too out of hand.”

“We had a long night last night,” said Sarah Tanberg, a member of CIAO and junior majoring in family studies and human development. “We try to do most of the products that we sell by ourselves and with donations. It’s a lot of work preparing and decorating.” Although there were many clubs who were Wildcat World Fair veterans, there were also many clubs who were on the Mall for the

It would only be something for the committee then, and that’s not right,” Travis said.

Green Fund Committee chair
Prof studies soul, cerebrum By Lívia Fialho Arizona Daily Wildcat Stuart Hameroff has focused on the study of consciousness and its mysteries for more than 20 years. Anesthesiology professor and director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at UA, Hameroff’s interest in the human mind dates back to his college years, when he took a philosophy class that delved into the teachings of Descartes and Plato. Since then, he’s wanted to understand why human beings are conscious. His research focuses on microtubules, the structures that comprise the skeleton and the nerve system of a cell, with massive information capacity. Because of the way the 100 billion neurons in our brains work, acting like bits on a computer, many people suggest that once a computer reaches the level of neurons in capacity they’ll be conscious. Hameroff disagrees. “I think consciousness is more than just computation. Otherwise fancy computers would be conscious,” he said. In the 1990s, he teamed up with physicist Roger Penrose to formulate a theory that combined microtubules and quantum
processes in the brain. Connecting it to the fundamental levels of the universe, where they suggest information and values such as wisdom are found, they built their theory of how consciousness is construed. In the Penrose/Hameroff theory, consciousness is connected to what the universe is actually made of. The theory was not well received among many scholars because of its religious connotation and was categorized as “mystical,” he said. In the last few years, new findings have strengthened their study. Quantum coherence is now being found in various biological systems, including microtubules, and quantum biology is becoming a separate recognized field. “But it’s still a controversial theory and still a minority. Most people still believe the brain is a computer and that’s all you need to know,” Hameroff said. Research in microtubules has many implications. They’re connected to Alzheimer ’s disease, and studies are trying to enhance the cells to help with memory loss and chronic pain by applying vibration directly to the skull. Technology advances
have helped in analyzing levels of awareness. Studies have been looking at near-death experiences trying to understand it. In one study, 17 percent of patients who had cardiac arrests said to have experienced the white light, floating above their bodies before they came back. Although some in the field deem it as hallucinations, “it’s remarkably consistent from patient to patient,” Hameroff said. Brain monitors connected to dying patients have shown a burst of activity, meaning
consciousness, right after patients have died. “After they cut the aorta, there was a burst of activity,” Hameroff said of observing a brain-dead patient after their death. Most people can’t explain how without a heart beat and in such poor state of health the phenomenon happened. He believes it could be a sign of the soul leaving the body, as a consequence of the quantum effect. “How that happens when the brain is basically metabolically dead is a big mystery,” Hameroff said.

UA fans could learn from man’s ‘Major’ passion Storm Byrd Arizona Daily Wildcat
magine the date is Dec. 1 — one day before the UA vs. ASU “Duel in the Desert” football game — and your physician has told you that you must go under the knife for lifesaving surgery. There’s a good chance you will make it out of the surgery just fine, but the procedure will render you unable to attend or even watch the game. Do you tell the doc, “We’re going to have to put a hold on this whole ‘surgery’ thing, I’ve got a game to watch,” or do you just have the surgery and move on with your life? Most readers will say, “Eh, a game is a game, and ASU shouldn’t be that much of a challenge anyway,” but if you’re one of those surly, dedicated to a fault, diehard fans, then you’re the spitting image of a man named Major Hester and you tell that doctor, “Surgery will just have to wait.” Major Hester is a Michigan State fan in every sense of the word. The 69-year-old retired man watches every Michigan State game with such tenacity that he has been banished to watching in his bedroom where he can’t scream or rant and rave in the presence of his family and friends. Unfortunately, this intensity comes into conflict with a preexisting condition; Hester suffers from cardiomyopathy, which results in a weakened heart muscle. Due to this medical matter, Hester has been instructed to have surgery to implant a pace maker in his chest. Nonetheless, he has told the doctor that the surgery will have to wait until after the Michigan State vs. Michigan game. Hester’s rationale for dodging the surgery was that he didn’t want a complication on the surgery table to cause him to miss the game. “(Surgery) is like going into combat. You may come home alive or you may come home dead,” Hester said. Hester’s devotion is crazy, extreme, fanatic (pardon the pun) and ohso-awesome. Imagine what that guy wouldn’t do for his team. You would never catch him wearing any other school’s gear, or even so much as setting foot on a rival’s campus for anything other than a football game against his very own Spartans. Apparently Hester’s heart is so deeply rooted in the Michigan State program that he has to have pep talks to calm himself down during games, lest his heart suddenly fail from all the intensity and passion. If the UA had this much school pride from both the fans and administration, we would never have seen the construction of the wall in front of ZonaZoo, and we would never have to hear players or coaches complain under their breaths about how fans leave early after one half of the football game. Every week would carry the party atmosphere that the Iowa game did, and every team would truly enter a “zoo” whenever they came to Arizona Stadium (even if was lowly NAU). Do we all need to push ourselves to the edge of sanity for the red and blue? No, but we need a bit more passion and perhaps an admiration for fandom and school pride. Imagine what we could do for our school’s reputation with a ZonaZoo army of screaming Hesters. No matter how talented the team we put on the field, the enthusiasm of the crowd alone would make every road trip to Tucson a nightmare. Here’s to Major Hester for his superior dedication even in the face of uncertain surgery. Some may say you’ve risked too much, but nobody can question your fervor. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore.

Approval ratings show it’s time for Obama to step up Brett Haupt Arizona Daily Wildcat
NN published its findings on America’s current political stance on Friday. One of the questions: Do you think Barack Obama is a better president than George W. Bush? America answered: 47 percent of those polled think that Obama is better while 45 percent say that he is not. Two percentage points separate those who would rather have Bush as a president over Obama, down from a 23 percent advantage a year ago. The thunderous rumbling noise you hear is that of great expectations crashing down. On a week-to-week basis, approval ratings can jump up and down like a pogo stick. For example, look at Bush’s approval ratings before and after Sept. 11, 2001. Before that fateful day, Bush had a 51 percent approval rating; afterwards, it skyrocketed up to 90 percent. It’s important not to underestimate the power of a good speech. Bush’s post-9/11 address was a revelation, a spine tingling call to arms that united a nation and drove forward the Middle Eastern meddling machine we still employ today. His approval from the week prior to the week following Sept. 11 was the biggest jump in the history of approval records.
Ironically, the war so vehemently supported by the public initially drove Bush to new depths of disapproval later in his second term. Democrats’ initial approval of Obama when he took office was the highest ever initial figure — 88 percent — which embodies the excitement he instilled in the party. Close to two years later, Obama has seen his overall approval drop to 47 percent. This downward-trending approval rating is hardly abnormal. Since World War II, only one president has had a net gain of approval rating from arrival to departure in office, Bill Clinton, and only Dwight D. Eisenhower saw approval ratings over 50 percent for almost his entire presidency. When comparing support from Bush to Obama, both hovered around 60 percent approval within their first 200 days in office, when Bush’s spiked post 9/11 and Obama’s has dwindled consistently to today’s approval. But to be blunt, a dead muskrat could have capitalized on the ailing American psyche post Sept. 11. Buffered by this titanic leap in approval, Bush coasted through much of his first term with greater than 50 percent approval; however, a steady decline
continued into his second term as the war in Iraq grew increasingly unpopular to the point of Vietnam-esque status. It is worth noting that while Obama is far beneath Bush’s ratings at this point in his term, he is above Clinton’s ratings at the same point in his first term. The standing legacy of Obama at this point is tied to his inheritance of a drowning economy and an attempt at health care reform. We just haven’t seen enough of the Obama administration to determine definitively if he has what it takes to make the changes necessary for our nation to move forward. A presidency is not made in the first year and a half alone. Although the road is steep, the expectations were high, and unfairly or not, we stick with our judgments. Is Obama really better than Bush? An educated man would have to think so, but even the most devout liberals are getting restless. There is a lot of game left to be played, Mr. President; the second half is about to start. It’s time to step up, or fall back into the realm of mediocrity. It’s time to change the game like you promised, and it’s time you got a little help from the Republicans, too. It’s time we all kept vigilant our scrutiny of your administration while also understanding patience for the long road back. Time is still to be had, Mr. President, and it’s about time you show us what you’re made of. — Brett Haupt is a journalism junior. He can be reached at email@example.com.
Come out, come out, wherever you are By Kenny Contrata Arizona Daily Wildcat
e thought we were making progress. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is facing rebuke from all three branches of government. Proposition 8 has been declared unconstitutional. The ban on gay adoption in Florida has been overturned. Then September slapped us back to reality. A string of suicides involving gay teens, or those perceived to be gay, plagued last month. Billy Lucas, 15, hanged himself in his grandmother’s barn after he was subjected to constant bullying by classmates. Asher Brown, 13, shot himself in the head after his parents complained for 18 months about the harassment he endured from schoolmates. Tyler Clementi, 18, jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his college roommate secretly taped him having sex with another man and posted it on the Internet. Both Seth Walsh, 13, from Tehachapi, Calif., and Raymond Chase, 19, an openly gay student at Johnson & Whales University in Rhode Island, hanged themselves. Unfortunately, the list goes on. The shocking deaths reminded us of the truth: It’s still not OK to grow up gay in America. Our community was so focused on the fight for our civil rights, we became preoccupied by the notion that our victories were representative of the nation as a whole.
We forgot the teasing and tormenting harassing our isolated youth. We forgot that queer teens can’t take solace in legislative and judicial victories when they are barraged with attacks from their peers saying their lives are abhorrent and should be ended. We live in a world so unbearably caustic that our youth can’t imagine a life free from hate. Gay teens are four times more likely to attempt suicide than their straight counterparts. “When a gay teenager commits suicide, it’s because he can’t picture a life for himself that’s filled with joy and family and pleasure and is worth sticking around for,” said Dan Savage, an openly gay syndicated sex-advice columnist, in an interview with MTV News. “I wish I could have talked to this kid (Billy Lucas) for five minutes,” Savage wrote in the Sept. 22 edition of his column. “I wish I could have told Billy that it gets better.” Those three words inspired Savage to launch a project attempting to show queer youth that no matter how alone, how harassed or hopeless their life might seem now, it will get better. Savage posted the first video on the YouTube channel ItGetsBetterProject with his husband, Terry Miller. “Honestly, things got better the day I left high school,” Miller said in the video, after recounting the abuse he experienced as a teen. The two described how much their lives have improved since then, citing meeting each other, their conservative families growing to love and accept their new sons, and the couple adopting a son of their own.
“But gay adults aren’t allowed to talk to these kids … depriving them of information, resources and positive role models,” Savage wrote. “We don’t have to wait for permission to let them know that it gets better. We can reach these kids.” Since the project’s inception, hundreds of members of the LGBTQ community have posted tales of their battles with school-aged adversity on the YouTube page, always with the promise that “it gets better.” Even gay celebrities like Neil Patrick Harris, Tim Gunn and Scissor Sisters’ frontman Jake Shears sought to show that nearly every gay teen battles abuse, but the torment doesn’t last forever. There’s no day better than today, National Coming Out Day, for members of the LGBTQ community to renew their commitment to living out of the closet, openly celebrating the freedom that comes from staying true to yourself — serving as an inspiration for struggling queer teens everywhere to choose life. That’s all it takes to save someone. Dedicate yourself to living openly. Just knowing queer people lead happy, successful lives could save a teen from making an irreversible decision. Maybe one day, queer youth won’t be sentenced to seemingly insurmountable hatred and ridicule. That day isn’t here yet. Be a hero for the silently marginalized queer youth. Serve as living proof that it gets better. — Kenny Contrata is the copy chief of the Daily Wildcat. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Someone turned in an iPhone that they found on the corner of Fremont Avenue and Helen Street to the University of Arizona Police Department on Wednesday. At approximately 12:20 p.m. the person found the phone and brought it into the police station, stating only where the phone had been found. The iPhone is black and is eight gigabytes. It was inventoried into the UAPDâ€™s property and evidence.
Students score a steal, caught by cops
Two UA students were cited and released on Tuesday. At approximately 12:02 a.m. an officer was dispatched to one of the residence halls on campus after receiving a call about an odor of marijuana coming from one of the dorms. The officer was directed to the room by one of the resident assistants. The officer knocked on the door and heard the sound of tape being pulled off the door jam. A man opened the door and from inside the room the officer saw an additional man sitting on one of the beds. The officer could smell a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the room. He asked both students to step out of the room and sit along a wall in the hallway. After asking the men to sit down, the officer asked them for identification. The first man identified himself using a New Hampshire driverâ€™s license, and the second identified himself using a California driverâ€™s license. The officer asked one of the men to reenter the room and read him his Miranda Rights. The student stated that he understood his rights and would answer any questions from the police. He told the officer that sometime between 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Oct. 4, he and the other student in the room spoke with an undisclosed person near the Coronado Residence Hall who offered him a gram of marijuana for $2. The man told the officer that he and his friend bought the marijuana from the man and went back to their residence hall to smoke it. According to the man they smoked the marijuana from a pipe that they owned. The man pulled the marijuana from a green bottle under his bed and showed it to the officer. The officer then spoke with the other man. The man agreed to answer questions after being read his Miranda Rights. He provided an account that was identical to the first studentâ€™s account. The officer arrested both men at 12:42 a.m. for possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. After signing their citations, both of the men were released without incident. When the officer returned to the UAPD main office, he weighed the marijuana at 0.9 grams. It was sent to the Arizona Department of Safety for scientific analysis. The glass pipe was placed into property as evidence.
Convenient. Healthy. Delicious.
â€˜MoleMan & The Sand Sharksâ€™ strike again
Graffiti was found on the Biological Sciences West building on Tuesday at 9:14 a.m. While a UAPD officer and a police aid were conducting a building check they discovered that the floor and wall of the northeast stairwell of the building had been vandalized with graffiti. There were two spots of graffiti written in black marker in block script that read, â€œSOO WOO!!! I LOVE METH!!!â€? It covers approximately a square foot and is located on the top step of the stairwell. The second spot of graffiti reads â€œMoleMan & The Sand Sharks,â€? also written in block letters. It is approximately 18 inches in length and 1.5 inches tall. UA Maintenance was advised by dispatch. Pictures of the graffiti were taken and placed into evidence. There is no suspect information.
Police arrest man â€˜just chillinâ€™â€™
A UAPD officer was patrolling the fourth floor of the UA Main Library at about 6:05 p.m. on Tuesday, when he observed a man who appeared to be napping on the north side of the library. The manâ€™s eyes were closed and he was lying with both legs stretched out on two large chairs that he had pushed together to form a bed. His head was on a pillow that he had brought with him and he was wearing a T-shirt, sweatpants and socks. His shoes were on the floor next to him and his glasses were lying on a table next to him. The officer greeted the man, who woke up, and asked what he was doing at the library. The man replied that he was â€œjust chillinâ€™.â€? The officer explained to him that the UA library is private property to be used for legitimate purposes only. The officer then asked the man for his ID and ran a check on him. It turned out that the man had an extraditable child support warrant issued with a bond of $3,500. The officer arrested the man and placed him in handcuffs. He then conducted a search of the man and his backpack, but found no contraband. The man was transported to the Pima County Adult Detention Complex and was booked on his warrant.

Family Weekend has come and gone, the football game was played (I hope we won, if so, give yourself a high-five for being a Wildcat. If not, still give yourself a high-five, you deserve it). There are some items to consider before going about your normal day-today this week. Like, The Games Room having 8 and 9 Ball Billiards Tournaments and something to do with double elimination. I donâ€™t even know what that means. Iâ€™m smart. And of course The Charles Darwin Experience in Gallagher Theater on Tuesday at 10p is always a heralding encounter with the UAâ€™s funniest and most creative students. Go to that, support them. They rule. But, enough of the stuff that happens EVERY week, how about something a little different? No? Well, too bad. Here we go. ARTIST TALK. Itâ€™s happening with Aimee Leon. At the Kachina Gallery in the SUMC on Tuesday. But who is she and what has she done? Let me steal a little content from the eventâ€™s website. The artist is responsible for the galleryâ€™s latest exhibit â€œWe Specialize in Controversyâ€?, which has to deal with the Donâ€™t Ask Donâ€™t Tell policy. Sheâ€™ll be going into detail about the experiences she encountered and the background for her work. This would be another great attraction to attend to get that well-rounded college experience you hear everyone talking about. (But you should take it, cuz I said so.)

Loss a teaching moment COMMENTARY BY Tim Kosch sports editor
Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat
A dejected Nick Foles walks off the field after Arizona lost 29-27 to Oregon State on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. Foles and the offense constructed a spirited comeback in the second half, but the hole dug by the defense was too deep to overcome. The Wildcats dropped from No. 9 in the AP Poll to No. 17 after the loss.
Oregon State scorches defense for 486 yards, upsets Wildcats 29-27 By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT For the better part of four games the Arizona defense played with a chip on its shoulder, transforming from the supposed weak link to the nation’s No. 2 defense. But while a 4-0 start and No. 9 ranking had its perks, the
underdog mentality diminished Saturday night as Oregon State tore apart the Arizona defense en route to 486 total yards and a 2927 Beavers victory. “It hurts that it came to this,” said co-defensive coordinator Greg Brown, “but sometimes it’s what you need is a wake-up call to say, ‘Hey, listen, guys, we’re
not where we think we are.’” The Wildcats certainly got their wake-up call. The defense looked nothing like the unit that allowed only 11 points per game and led the Pacific 10 Conference in rushing defense, passing defense and total defense. “We played sloppy football tonight and that’s not the type of
defense we are, and that’s not the type of defense we pride ourselves to be,” said senior defensive end Ricky Elmore. Despite holding one of the Pac10’s best backs, Jacquizz Rodgers, to only 83 yards on 25 carries, the secondary played “senseless” and lacked “focus and concentration,” FOOTBALL, page 9
V-ball sweeps Oregon schools By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT After dropping its first two games of conference play, the Arizona volleyball team is rolling. Over the weekend, the Wildcats took down Oregon State and No. 13 University of Oregon on the road, with both matches going five games. The biggest story of the weekend was Arizona’s (14-4, 3-2 Pacific 10 Conference) ability to come back after trailing 2-1 in both matches, and doing so without its best offensive player, outside hitter Whitney Dosty. “It was definitely a terrific weekend,” said Arizona head coach Dave Rubio. “It was hard-fought with a lot of difficulties and challenges along the way.” Dosty, who went into the weekend leading the Wildcats with 211 kills, injured her ankle in practice last week. She played the first three sets in the Oregon State (8-12, 1-5) match, but according to Rubio, the ankle was too painful for her to continue playing on. Arizona also won the first set of both matches, which preceded the Wildcats dropping the next two before rebounding to win the final two. “(The weekend) was huge for us on two different fronts,” Rubio said. “First, that we were able to play well without Whitney (Dosty), and second, that the team just came together and fought hard without her presence. I thought the first game was very well-executed, but then Oregon stepped up the level and we just didn’t respond very well.” In the weekend’s opening game against the Beavers, Arizona found a way to win even though OSU out-blocked the Wildcats 10.5-7. “(Oregon State) is a very good blocking team, but I’m not sure how much that affected us,” Rubio said. “We didn’t pass particularly well in that game, but we found a way to grind out a win without playing our best.”
Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Senior and team leader Whitney Dosty was limited over the weekend thanks to an ankle injury but the Wildcats prevailed in her absence, beating Oregon State on Friday and Oregon on Saturday. Arizona has now won three Pacific 10 Conference games in a row.
The team’s mindset after falling behind in both matches was another aspect that Rubio said stood out. He said that his team hadn’t shown the ability to come back in a match after falling behind 2-1 in a while, and they were able to stay sharp mentally and pull off the comeback. Another storyline for the win in Corvallis, Ore., was outside hitter Tiffany Owens’ career night. Owens racked up 32 kills while hitting at a .426 clip to go along with 20 digs against the Beavers. “Tiffany (Owens), she’s been solid all year,” Rubio said. “She has been one of the people who have
been showing up every night and day offensively.” The match against Oregon (15-3, 3-3) was a different story from an offensive standpoint, with Arizona receiving big offensive numbers from three players. Owens and junior Courtney Karst were responsible for 45 of UA’s 65 kills, with junior Cursty Jackson adding seven of her own. Karst’s 22 kills were a career high, and she hit at a .320 clip. Her impressive offensive numbers might be explained by a shift in the rotation after Dosty couldn’t play against the Ducks. Rubio moved Karst over to the
spot vacated by Dosty, and inserted junior Marketa Hanzlova into Karst’s spot. All of the offensive careerhighs couldn’t happen without senior setter Paige Weber, who had what Rubio called her best two games of the season. “(Weber) was terrific,” he said. “Nothing can happen without her being in the middle of it.” As big as winning two road conference games for the Wildcats was, Rubio thinks the biggest benefit of the weekend might be mental. “Now,” he said, “our players feel like they can win at any time.”
Well, it happened. It wouldn’t be fair to say that Arizona didn’t belong in the top 10, but after a humbling 29-27 loss to Oregon State it is very apparent that the Wildcats have flaws that need to be corrected if they realistically want to make the Rose Bowl or any other BCS bowl game. While all three phases of Arizona’s game have their issues, nothing stood out more on Saturday than the ineptitude of the secondary and the signs of struggle go back to the Iowa game in week three. For a majority of the 2009 season, opposing quarterbacks stayed away from cornerback Trevin Wade’s side at all costs, often picking on then-senior Devin Ross. Toledo and The Citadel followed suit, choosing to throw in the flats and over the middle rather than the perimeter and outer deep-thirds. But Iowa must have seen something on film because quarterback Ricky Stanzi attacked both Wade and cornerback Robert Golden on a few occasions, beating them over the top more than we’ve seen happen before. Oregon State took it to another level when wide receiver James Rodgers beat Wade badly on a sluggo route for a touchdown on the first drive of the game. The Beavers never looked back. Arizona’s zones were too soft and man-coverage was too tight. OSU quarterback Ryan Katz was too accurate, Rodgers was too elusive and then when he got his knee shredded (on a play where he yet again double-moved a Wildcat defender for an easy touchdown, only to be tackled far too late by safety Adam Hall on a play that didn’t even count because of a penalty) the other Beaver receivers stepped up and had just as much success. Now, it wasn’t entirely the defensive backfield’s fault. It turned out that Wade actually hurt his leg on the first drive of the game and was playing at about 50 percent and Katz really was incredible for Oregon State. Then there’s the whole “the offense doesn’t wake up until the second half” thing and trying to figure out kicker Alex Zendejas would probably be harder than filling out The New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle in under five minutes. In all, you have a team that has some kinks to work out that just lost its first game of the season, and that might be a good thing considering where the team is right now. Head coach Mike Stoops admitted after the game that his defensive scheme probably places too much pressure on its cornerbacks to make plays on their own and that he and his defensive coaches would look into giving them more safety help. The offense is slowly getting better at running the ball and shown it can score at will in each game, it just needs to learn to play a more complete game from start to finish. Lastly, Zendejas needs to work on being more consistent if Arizona hopes to win these close games. The Wildcats have three weeks to work on these issues — this week at Pacific 10 Conference basement dweller Washington State and then back-to-back games against underachieving Washington and UCLA — before they play their next meaningful game against Stanford on Nov. 6, when we’ll find out if Arizona learned from this disappointing loss. — Tim Kosch is a journalism senior.

‘Cats drop both matches in Washington
Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Freshman Ana Montoya and the Wildcats lost to both Washington and Washington State over the weekend, getting outscored 5-1 in the two games. Despite the losses, Montoya continued to establish herself as the future of the program, leading the team in shot attempts.
Losses give Arizona 0-2 start in Pacific 10 Conference season on Friday night in Seattle, and despite losing by three goals, Arizona flashed its potential in the first 45 minutes of play. Thanks to a goal by freshman Jazmin Ponce, her third on the year, Arizona entered halftime with a 1-0 lead over the Huskies (9-3-1, 2-0), but couldn’t hold on after UW responded with four second-half goals. A tale of two halves was the same story for Arizona on Sunday against Washington State (6-7, 1-1 Pac-10). The Wildcats sputtered on offense in the first half — WSU outshot UA 13-3 in the first half and 7-6 in the second — and weren’t clicking until the second half when it ended up being too little too late. Telling the Wildcats to play a complete game is something that can only go so far and can end up sounding like a broken record, which is why Oyen explained that actions would ultimately speak louder than words. “It’s one of those things where it’s harder to teach that aspect of collectively competing with high energy the whole game. You can tell them all you want, but the players
By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Wildcats soccer team will return to Tucson trying to correct the same issues that plagued them when they left. The Wildcats dropped both of their road matches this weekend, losing 4-1 to Washington and 1-0 against Washington State to end their mild twogame winning streak. Arizona struggled to play its best soccer from start to finish, which is a hurdle that head coach Lisa Oyen has been trying to get her team to jump over from the beginning of the season. “Unfortunately we came out in both games and played one half instead of a full 90 minutes,” Oyen said. “Playing a complete game is something we’ve tried to work on all season, and that was the biggest problem this weekend. “We learned it the hard way, everyone in the Pac-10 is going to be good and we have to fight for everything we can get during the game,” Oyen added. The Wildcats (4-7-2, 0-2 Pacific 10 Conference) opened up the Pac-10
actually going out there and showing it on the field is going to get us the results we want,” Oyen said. A silver lining for Arizona was the continued development of skilled freshman Ana Montoya, who led the Wildcats in shot attempts over the weekend. As far as tangible adjustments to be made on the field, Oyen wants to see a stronger attacking presence up front to keep pressure on opponents’ defenses, and hoped to see a progression from the offense. Arizona faced a similar situation earlier in the year when it dropped its first two matches of the season. The next weekend, the Wildcats earned a pair of positive results, and since then have shown the attitude to fight back from a pair of losses, and the resolve to not let it affect their next game. “We’ll learn from these ones. They’re not happy with it right now and they’re going to do everything they can to make sure it doesn’t happen in our next match,” Oyen said. “They don’t like losing in this manner, and they’re going to do anything they can do get this taste out of their mouths.”

Missed opportunities, defense doom Wildcats
continued from page 8
according to head coach Mike Stoops. Quarterback Nick Foles and the Arizona offense totaled 541 yards, including 12 catches for 179 yards from receiver Juron Criner, but the once-heralded defense forgot to show up. Brown said that the secondary “couldn’t uphold our end of the bargain,” and “couldn’t get a stop to save our lives.” Oregon State quarterback Ryan Katz was a huge reason why. In only his fifth career start, Katz made all of the throws at the right times, totaling 393 yards, two passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown. More impressively, he did a lot of it without No. 1 target James Rodgers, who went down with a knee injury with 5:07 left in the second quarter. James Rodgers totaled seven catches for 102 yards until that point. “He’s a very good quarterback, mobile, makes a lot of throws, you could just see it tonight,” Elmore said. “Something that kind of shocked us is how much poise he had for a first-year starter … When you hit a quarterback right in the face and he completes a ball 30 yards down the field, it does drain you emotionally.” Although Katz had a special night, Arizona’s secondary didn’t do itself any favors. “To give up almost 400 yards of passing is disturbing and it’s probably the most yards we’ve given up in a long time,” Stoops said. OSU struck first as James Rodgers put a double-move on Arizona cornerback Trevin Wade and snared a 33-yard touchdown pass from Katz with 11:41 remaining in the first quarter. The Wildcats quickly answered with a 45-yard touchdown connection between Foles and Criner, but the momentum wouldn’t stick and the OSU first downs kept coming.The Wildcats aim to stop their opponents 65 percent of the time on third downs, according to outside linebacker Paul Vassallo, but the Beavers converted 10 of its 15 third downs, which led to OSU winning the time of possession battle by nearly 13 minutes. Behind a 48-y ard touchdown pass to receiver Markus Wheaton, Katz carried the Beavers into the second half with a 17-7 lead. Arizona had its chance to make a run in the first half, but Foles, who finished with 440 yards, threw an interception in the end zone the drive before the Wheaton touchdown and kicker Alex Zendejas missed a 37-yard field goal at the end of the first half. Zendejas also had an extra
point blocked early in the second half that would have given Arizona a chance to go for a two-point conversion and tie the score late in the game. “Missing scoring opportunities in the first half, you can’t do that,” Stoops said. The Wildcats started the second half with a bang as running back Keola Antolin scored on a 33-yard burst on the first drive of the third quarter. A Katz rushing touchdown stretched the lead back to 23-13, but Nic Grigsby’s 41-yard catch and run with 3:20 left in the third gave Arizona another glimmer of hope. But OSU running back Jacquizz Rodgers scored on a 1-yard dive with 5:46 left in the fourth to push the lead to nine after the point after touchdown was missed. Antolin scored on a Foles pass with 1:52 left, but the late-game magic ran out for Arizona for the first time all season as it couldn’t recover the onside kick and suffered its first defeat of the 2010 season. The loss isn’t all that alarming, as the Beavers were expected to be among the top three teams in the conference, but it was the lack of effort and preparation that’s a cause for concern. “There’s no question they came out and showed it to us on our home turf and took it to us, and we’ve got to get a whole heck of a lot better than that if we expect to compete with the rest of the Pac-10,” Brown said. Stoops added: “I think we let a good opportunity slip through our hands in not playing particularly well. I don’t know if we lost our edge or took things for granted or what, but we’ll have to look at the film and get some things corrected.”
Arizona in the rankings
Because of the loss, Arizona dropped from No. 9 in the AP poll to No. 17. The Wildcats also slid from No. 11 in the USA Today coaches poll to No. 20. With the win, Oregon State entered the Top 25 at No. 24 in the AP poll.
Arizona fell from the country’s No. 2 scoring defense to No. 10, now yielding 14.6 points per game. Its pass defense slipped all the way to No. 34 in the country, now allowing 182.2 passing yards per game. The rushing defense actually increased, moving to No. 16 in the country allowing less than 100 yards per game at 99.6. Arizona did give up its first two rushing touchdowns of the season on Saturday.

Read the Daily Wildcat It’s so sweet
Icecats win two of three at showcase
Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Senior forward Jordan Schupan scored two goals in the first period of Arizona’s win over West Chester during the weekend at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Showcase in Ohio. The Icecats conquered tough competition and a different time zone to take two out of the three games they played.
Schupan, Slogocki and Sisler lead the way for Icecats’ first victories of the season By Daniel Gaona ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT After losing their first game at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Showcase in Ohio, the Icecats bounced back with 16 goals to win their next two. The Icecats fell 5-4 to Mercyhurst College in the showcase opener on Friday morning. Arizona led 2-1 at the end of the first period but trailed 4-3 at the end of the second. Forward Andrew Murmes scored his second goal of the game with 3:28 left in the final period to tie the score. However, the Lakers answered with 1:42 left to take a permanent 5-4 lead. Seven of the nine combined goals came on power plays. Sophomore Brian Slugocki scored Arizona’s other two goals and freshman goaltender Steven Sisler had 37 saves. “I thought we could have won but it was just one of those things,” head coach Leo Golembiewski said. “We were a little sloppy.” On Saturday, the Icecats won their first game of the season 8-6 over Rutgers. They jumped out to a 3-2 lead after Murmes netted a pair of goals and freshman forward Eric Watters added another. The Scarlet Knights took a 6-5 lead with 9:50 left in the third period, but two minutes later, sophomore forward Jared Lowell tied the game with his second goal of the day. Then, junior defenseman Jonathan Watanabe gave the Icecats a 7-6 lead when he hit a goal with 1:51 remaining and with eight seconds left in the game, sophomore Scotty Willson added an empty net goal. Sophomore David Herman registered 44 saves as the Icecats’ goaltender. Yesterday, despite playing at 5 a.m. Tucson time, Arizona handily upset No. 19 West Chester 8-3.
“We were on the ice at 4:30 body clock time and for the guys to come out like they did was really cool,” Golembiewski said. “We’ve been at the showcase three times and that was the first time we’ve won the Sunday morning game.” The Icecats broke out to a 4-0 lead in the first period after two goals by senior forward Jordan Schupan and Murmes respectively. All four goals were on power plays. “West Chester was a pretty undisciplined team and went to the box quite a bit in the first period and we took advantage of it,” Golembiewski said. “They had five penalties in the first period and the guys jumped on that.” Slugocki scored in the second period giving UA a 5-1 lead but wasn’t close to being finished. He scored three goals for a hat trick in the third period alone. Murmes totaled seven points in the win with his two goals and five assists. Junior forward Blake Richards had three assists. Golembiewski said the game puck went to Sisler, who won his first game as an Icecat and had 41 saves. “The goaltending all weekend was solid,” he said. “Sisler played well and so did Herman.” Golembiewski liked the way his team looked over the weekend. Arizona’s three losses have been by a combined four goals so he feels that with some progress the outcome would be different. “It was nice to see that resilience and we know we have a good club and could just as easily be 5-0, but we’re not,” he said. “We played well enough to beat Mercyhurst and even Arizona State.” The team will take this week off for academics and rest and will return to the ice next week to prepare for its next game on Oct. 22 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Q Does getting the HPV shot prevent you from getting cervical cancer? A. Yes, the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine will greatly reduce your chances of getting cervical cancer. In clinical trials, the vaccine was proven to be highly effective against HPV types 16 and 18 (which account for 70% of all cervical cancer cases). Because the vaccine doesn’t work against every type of HPV, women who receive the HPV vaccine should still continue to have regular cervical cancer screening (Pap smear or ThinPrep®). HPV is the name of a group of viruses spread by skin-to-skin contact. There are more than 100 different types of HPV: some cause common warts on the hands or feet while others cause warts on the genitals. Of these, 30-40 subtypes can be transmitted sexually, leading to genital warts in men and women as well as changes that may progress to cervical, penile and anal cancer. In June 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved GARDASIL® to prevent HPV in women. In October 2009, it was approved for use in men. In addition to protection against HPV types 16 and 18, GARDASIL® thwarts HPV types 6 and 11 (which cause 90% of all cases of genital
Ideally, the HPV vaccine should be given prior to sexual contact and possible exposure to HPV. The recommended target population for the HPV vaccination includes people between the ages of 11-26. Both GARDASIL® and Cervarix® are usually delivered by injection to the upper arm or upper thigh and three shots are required for the vaccine to be effective. The second and third doses of GARDASIL® should be given at two and six months, respectively, after the first dose. The schedule for Cervarix® is similar, although the second shot should be administered just one month after the first injection. Smoking and multiple sexual partners also increase a woman’s risk of cervical cancer. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov and search for “HPV vaccine.”

warts). Cervarix®, which protects only against subtypes 16 and 18, was also approved in October 2009. Neither of the vaccines will protect against types to which people have already been exposed.

Gary Snyder’s reading draws large crowd to the Poetry Center By Miranda Butler Arizona Daily Wildcat The University of Arizona Poetry Center attracted the largest crowd in recent memory for their evening reading on Thursday with Gary Snyder. The entire seminar room was filled with spectators, including many people seated on the ground and around the perimeter. In addition, the retractable walls of the seminar room were opened up to the outdoor courtyard, which was also completely filled with people in chairs, on the steps and on the floor. Thursday’s reading was particularly special for the Poetry Center, so it’s no wonder so many people attended. This year, the Poetry Center is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this month, founder Ruth Stephan is
the focus. In keeping with these themes, the Poetry Center featured awardwinning essayist, lecturer, environmental activist and poet Gary Snyder. Back in the 1960s, Snyder was close friends with Stephan. In 1964, Snyder was one of the first speakers to give a reading at the Ruth Stephan Poetry Cottage, the center that preceded today’s awardwinning facility. Snyder met Stephan while they were both studying Buddhism and Zen in Tokyo, Japan. Throughout his reading, Snyder reminisced about his times with Stephan and told many anecdotes from his long and notable life story. Although Snyder is most often associated with the Beat Generation of the 1970s, he shared poems from various times in his life — as
early as the 1950s and as late as his most current book. Perhaps so many people are drawn to Gary Snyder because he writes about almost everything, and has experienced the cultures of many different places. His pieces discussed art, nature, family, life, science fiction, mortality and everything in between. He referenced mythology and stories from Japan, China, Native American cultures, Alaska and the Middle East. Altogether, Snyder showcased an inspiring collection of his work and left his mark on the Poetry Center once again. His reading drew many people to the Poetry Center for the first time and brought back long-time patrons who attended his readings nearly 50 years ago.
