Regents offer Brewer’s chief of staff position of board president BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat

The chief of staff for Gov. Jan Brewer has been offered the position of president of the Arizona Board of Regents. The regents’ Presidential Search Committee named Eileen Klein as a finalist for the position and authorized contract negotiations to begin, according to a news release from the board. When regents invited Klein to participate in the selection process following Tom Anderes’ decision to step down in late July, she said it provided the perfect way to complement her economic recovery work in the governor’s office and to continue building a stronger future

for the state. “I see this opportunity at ABOR as being the chance to really go in and work with a very distinguished group of committed leaders on advancing our state’s higher education system,” Klein said. Klein has served as Brewer’s chief of staff since fall 2009, helping to oversee the day-to-day operations of the state government and execute Brewer’s agenda and working closely with the cabinet to make sure the state is running effectively. “I think it’s just a passion for solving the big problems that governments try to solve,” Klein said. “I have always been interested in those challenges and how to make life better for people through the efficient use of government resources.”

Klein said that if she becomes the board’s president, she will focus her attention on ensuring there are enough degrees in the right areas to meet the workforce need of the state, as well as working to attract research dollars. “We also have to be very focused on how we make sure opportunities for students stay affordable and attainable so they can complete their degrees in a reasonable amount of time and that they can afford to complete their education,” Klein said. The president of the board serves as the “glue” that holds the three state university presidents together, and the four of them cooperate so the universities are the best they can be and the state is the best it can be, said Rick Myers, the board’s chairman.


The seventh annual Tucson Zombie Walk on Saturday featured a costume contest, dance party and free concert. All proceeds went to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

“Our feeling is Eileen is an established and experienced senior executive, she has great experience in health care, in government, and we believe she’s the perfect complement to our three university presidents,” Myers said, “and that the four of them are just going to be a fantastic team.” Now that Klein has been selected as a finalist, she has received a contract and information about the position. There are high hopes that Klein will take the position, Myers said. “I’m really very deeply honored,” Klein said. “This is a very significant role and I was very honored to have the support and the confidence of the board. I’m looking forward to continuing this conversation with them and seeing where we wind up.”


UA College of Science sees no bias against women despite study MATT BURNS Arizona Daily Wildcat

Although the College of Science sees a disparity in gender among its leaders, many of them say a bias against women doesn’t exist in their college. A study conducted at Yale University found that professors at six major research universities were less likely to offer qualified women research positions, but College of Science Dean Joaquin Ruiz said he feels the UA does not experience such bias. “We have had various studies in the College of Science trying to determine if there is overt or covert discrimination against women,” Ruiz said. “There is no clear indication that there is, in general. I suspect that there may be pockets here and there where that problem may exist.” Ruiz said that the enrollment in the College of Science is approximately even between men and women, and has been for the past several years. According to Elizabeth Glisky, head of the College of Science’s psychology department, only four of the 17 department heads are female, including herself.

In addition, both the dean and associate dean of the College of Science are male. However, Glisky said that the number of female students in the College of Science has increased in the past few years, but that this may be due to Psychology becoming part of the college in 2010. Currently 70 percent of psychology students, or 1500 students, are women, according to Glisky. “I am not aware of any outright bias against women in science,” Glisky said. “In my department, of the last four hires we made, three were women.” Bias against women in scientific careers may be the product of a collection of small biases toward men over the course of time, said Mary Peterson, a professor with the department of psychology and director of the cognitive science program. “There are lots of biases operating implicitly that wind up holding women back because they tend to be rated lower than men even if qualifications are the same … and they tend to be paid salaries that are lower than



Congressmen hold forum to address WORTH NOTING deferred action, tuition payments This day in history

for legal residency. Grijalva agreed that Pima RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Community College should be the next on board Arizona Daily Wildcat and that once most of the community colleges offer in-state tuition for undocumented students Rep. Raul Grijalva, of Arizona, and Rep. Luis on deferred action, the UA will follow. Grijalva Gutiérrez, of Illinois, held a question and answer said that he would help to make that happen. Grijalva said his next step is to help session on deferred action at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 13 at the Young Women’s Christian Association. The two congressmen updated locals on their current efforts for undocumented immigrants and what their next steps will be after the election and listened to the concerns of their constituents. Currently, all undocumented students in Arizona who go to college have to pay out-ofstate tuition because of Proposition 300, which prevents undocumented students from receiving state financial aid. Deferred action status doesn’t — Raul Grijalva, affect this provision. U.S. representative Scholarships A-Z co-director and co-founder Matt Matera explained that most undocumented students end up going to community college since it is more affordable. The whole audience applauded for the undocumented workers to wrap up their GEDs Undocumented Youth in Action group when it more easily and to be able to take accelerated explained that Maricopa Community Colleges classes rather than working toward in-state will allow undocumented students on deferred tuition. He added that he wants to offer these action to pay in-state tuition beginning in courses and facilitate the process for obtaining January.

many of the kids that come in lack that primary criteria,” he said. Gutiérrez, who is also the chair of the Democratic Caucus’ Immigration Task Force, cleared up misconceptions at the meeting by explaining that if someone fills out the form for deferred action incorrectly, they do not get deported. Instead, the form is simply returned to them so they can fill it out again. The only way to get deported, he said, is to have a criminal background. Grijalva clarified that people with disabilities are qualified for deferred action as well. Gutiérez added that a total of 180,000 DREAMers have applied for deferred action so far . Of those, 158,000 are scheduled for a security background check, get fingerprinted and have their photo taken. From there, 6,400 are working with adjudicators and 4,591 already have their work documents. Gutiérrez also emphasized how much of a change has been made so far by giving examples from the Democratic National Convention, such as Julian Castro’s speech about deferred action and President Obama’s new commercial that is completely in Spanish. “When the president of the United States stops calling you illegal and starts saying you are just like his kids,” Gutierrez said, “that is a shift in the way things are seen.”

men’s,” Peterson said. “So what happens to women’s careers over time is that if they do come out of graduate school equal to men, if you track their careers over the years, the men’s career trajectory goes up with a much steeper slope than a woman’s. It could simply be an accumulation of small biases towards the men over the women.” One of the unconscious psychological biases Peterson cited as a barrier for women is what is called availability heuristic. For example, when selecting speakers to present research at a scientific conference, people will choose the names that come to mind most readily. However, it is less likely that the names of people in a minority group, such as women, will come to mind. “One can get speakers who are

all men, as opposed to women,” Peterson said. “This is something that affects somebody’s career trajectory, because if they’re not giving talks at conferences, they’re not as visible.” Peterson added that the effects of this phenomenon are not limited to women in scientific careers, but rather an effect that exists throughout society. “One thing that we have learned over the years from many studies that we’ve done is that people everywhere are affected by unconscious bias,” Peterson said. “We live in a society that has a bias inherent in it, and even if intellectually we may not want to take part in that sort of bias, we do so because we’re driven by things we’ve learned and the environment we grew up in. Rather than say whether it happens at the UA, what I’d like to say is that I believe that it happens everywhere.”

Obama prepares for second debate MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA addresses a crowd of thousands in Milwaukee on Sept. 22. The president has been spending the weekend at a resort in Virginia, going through another “debate camp” to prepare for his second face-off against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — President Barack Obama is hunkered down with aides at a Virginia golf resort, trying to plot his comeback from the lackluster first debate that blunted his campaign’s momentum. Obama arrived in Williamsburg on Saturday for his second “debate camp,” what aides describe as three days of focused briefing and practice aimed at coming back swinging in the second debate against Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The Obama campaign has promised he will return with a sharper, more aggressive style in Round 2 and points to the president’s recent speeches and ads as a flavor of what’s to come. Obama has been punchier, openly mocking Romney, stopping just shy of accusing him of lying, all the while using humor to take the edge off attacks that might damage the president ‘s strong likability ratings. Before his first debate with Romney, the president boasted that he would be serious and wouldn’t be delivering zingers. These days, Obama has been delivering zingers left and right. Romney once said he was severely conservative, Obama said Thursday in Florida. Now, “he’s trying to convince you that he was severely kidding,” he said. It’s not clear how the president will try to translate those new lines into Tuesday’s debate, which is a townhall forum designed to show off a

candidate’s ability to show empathy with voters, rather than hand-tohand combat. Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki already seemed to be lowering expectations for Obama on the connecting front. “The question is not just which candidate connects with the questioner but who has the better policies for the American people for the next four years, and on that front the president has a great advantage,” Psaki said. “Gov. Romney has been making pitches all his life and he knows how to say what people want to hear, whether that was during his time at Bain or during the dozens of town halls he did during the primary.” The Obama campaign also has praised Vice President Joe Biden’s animated and aggressive performance last week against Rep. Paul Ryan last week, and said it expects Obama to emphasize some of the same issues, including Romney’s tax plan, his approach to women’s health issues and his plans for winding down the war in Afghanistan. Obama is holed up with the same team of advisers that traveled to a resort outside of Las Vegas to prepared him for his first outing. Deputy National Security advisor Ben Rhodes has joined the team, made up of largely current and former aides, because Tuesday’s debate will include foreign policy questions. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., will again play the role of Mitt Romney.

Republicans request more money for security MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

WASHINGTON — A top Republican said more money should be spent to improve diplomatic security after the attack on the U.S. compound in Libya, as Republicans continued their assault of President Barack Obama’s handling of the situation. “We need to start spending that money and not claim that we don’t have enough money,” Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House oversight committee, said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “If there needs to be supplemental money, of course Congress would respond.” Republicans have led efforts in recent years to cut federal spending as part of a broader campaign to reduce the size of government, and Congress has repeatedly approved lower Daily Wildcat

levels of funding for the State Department than the White House has sought — though some specific embassy security accounts have been bolstered, aides said. More money can be made available by tapping unspent funds, Republicans said, or approving a supplemental appropriation, which would require a vote of Congress. Congress is in recess until after the Nov. 6 election. The top Democrat on the oversight committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said on the same show that additional money should be made available. The attacks on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi on the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, and continues to roil the presidential campaign as the White House’s

shifting narrative on the event has led to multiple congressional and administration investigations. The White House initially said the attacks grew from anti-American protests over a Californian’s film depiction of the prophet Muhammad, similar to protests in Egypt. But administration officials have since said it was believed to be a terrorist attack. “Very incompetent or very misleading,” Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, said on the same Sunday show. Obama has held a lead on national security issues over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. But criticisms over the White House’s handling of the Benghazi attack have pushed foreign policy issues back to the forefront. Republicans sought Sunday to

compare Obama’s reaction to the Libya incident to former President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” declaration — when the Republican president prematurely announced that the main aspects of the Iraq war were finished; violence, in fact, flared and it would be years before the ultimate withdrawal of troops. “Iraq was falling apart and you couldn’t get the truth from the Bush administration; the MidEast is falling apart and they’re trying to spin what happened in Libya,” Graham said. “We’re going through a ‘Mission Accomplished’ moment,” Issa said. In advance of a congressional hearing last week, former officials said they had warned of security concerns and sought additional funds, but the State Department declined to beef up the security at the embassy in Tripoli.

‘Banned Books Week’ lacked plan for future UNIDOS


rom Sept. 30 to Oct. 6, a bold array of academic colleges, departments and community groups dedicated a week of events to focusing on the state of Arizona’s targeting of Mexican-American Studies (MAS) program in Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) and the TUSD school board’s decision to ban certain books from schools. In this way, “Banned Books Week” undoubtedly fostered a deepened personal understanding in attendees regarding the crisis facing the Tucson community and beyond. But public forums which only discuss book-banning and cultural repression, however wellintentioned, alone will not bring back those books and curriculum for the communities they primarily served. As many of the youth who are continually affected by cultural repression and book-banning, we wish to ask last week’s organizers, attendees and the Tucson community for a commitment to act with us this week, through the next, again and again onward until the program is reclaimed in TUSD schools. After two and a half years of silence on the ban from departments like UA English, colleges like Humanities and spaces like the Poetry Center, we appreciate the dedication of time and effort to an event which overflowed the Modern Languages auditorium and outer halls on Oct. 5. Given that the banned books and program represented people of color, the audience should have reflected this. However, audiences were largely homogenous. Furthermore, it is a shame that youth voices were not included to speak at any of the events. There is a disappointing pattern of casting aside youth voices in cross-campus events held in the past, such as last April’s ethnic studies forum put on by the Faculty Senate Task Force on Equity and Fairness, which was also a full-capacity event. We take heart in and appreciate the fact that such events garnered vast audiences. But we are tired of the professorial culture of indirect action (or inaction) and we are tired of a larger university culture that separates itself from MAS student needs. Concrete action and youth inclusion is necessary. After all, it is the students whose critical education was robbed from them who are the best teachers to instruct the UA community about the human impact of book-banning and the State of Arizona’s attempts at cultural destruction in targeting the MAS program. It is the too-often-ignored youth voices in groups such as MEChA and UNIDOS who are acting to save our studies and who continue to invite peers and teachers to join the charge. Such work includes outreaching to high school and college students. We are also revamping a South Tucson casita (house) into a community organizing space as a way of creating autonomous, youth-led education in Tucson. We have been developing exciting forms of media (including film/video) as a way of spreading awareness of the ban. We have no intentions of stopping or slowing down anytime soon. It is in times of increasing isolation and attack that communities must bind together despite oppressive odds. Instead, we sadly observe many on campus — where little to no direct repression exists as it does in TUSD schools — neglecting to take effective stands that proceed well beyond academic forums held at the expense and exclusion of youth voices. We hope you’ll join us. — United Non-discriminatory Individuals Demanding Our Studies is a coalition to defend and preserve Mexican-American Studies programs in the Tucson community.

Police Beat YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat

When a stranger enters

A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to Pueblo de la Cienega Residence Hall in response to a report of a man inside the dorm who wasn’t a recognized resident. A resident assistant who was in his room had heard the man banging on the door to the room across from his. The man refused to give his name to the RA and seemed very confused. When the officer arrived, an RA told him that the man wouldn’t cooperate with any of the RAs. The UAPD officer went into a second floor room and found the shirtless man sitting at a desk on a computer. When asked, he immediately showed his ID, which said he was 19 years old and from Yuma. He said that he was staying with his friend, who was one of the residents of that room. The man claimed that he had been staying with another friend but was kicked out of the house, so he went to Pueblo at around 7 a.m. At first he said his friend let him into the dorm, but then he said he waited for an opportunity to be let into the dorm and didn’t get into his friend’s room until about 9 a.m. At this time, the resident entered the room. The officer talked with him privately and asked if he wanted the man to stay with him. At first he said no, but then changed his mind. He said that he had been with the man earlier but that at some point the man had left. When the officer asked more questions, the man changed his story once again, saying a different friend had let him into the residence hall. The officer cited the man for illegally entering the residence hall, but the man insisted that a friend had let him in. The officer then spoke with the second friend, who said that he and the man weren’t really friends but knew each other from high school. He said they did hang out at around 7 p.m. the night before, but he didn’t let the man into the building. He also said that the person the man was supposedly staying with isn’t a nice person and is really sketchy. The man was cited and released into the custody of his friend. He was told to stay in the room and placed under the responsibility of that friend.

The roommate

A UAPD officer went to Coronado Residence Hall on Sept. 27 because of a report a resident had filed about issues she was having with her roommate. She told the officer that they weren’t getting along and that the community director was working with Residence Life to find her alternate housing. The student said that earlier that day she had been standing outside her room while talking to her mom on the phone. During the conversation, she brought up some of the problems she was having with her roommate. She said that once she was done with the phone call, she went back into her room and saw that her roommate was in the bathroom, which is near the door. The student then heard her roommate say under her breath that she was going to beat her up. This made the student suspicious that her roommate had overheard her conversation with her mother. She said that this is the first time her roommate has said anything like that, and that she didn’t want to get the police involved because she thinks that would cause an even bigger problem. She just wanted the comment to be documented. For now, the community director is continuing to search for new housing for the student and will contact UAPD if police assistance is required at any time.

Dude, where’s my wallet

A wallet belonging to a UA student was stolen from a table in front of Chick-fil-A in the Student Union Memorial Center between noon and 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 19. The student told a UAPD officer that he sat down at a table in front of the restaurant and put his cellphone and wallet on the table behind the computer he was using. When he went to leave the union about 30 minutes later, he noticed his wallet was missing, but his phone was still there. He said there had been a long line of customers near his table and he suspected that one of the customers in line took his wallet. The student canceled all his financial cards and notified the CatCard office and his bank of the theft. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

Shoot ’em up

Arizona lost two of its best 3-point shooters to graduation. Who will fill their role? ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat

Brendon Lavender was the sniper, the designated three-point shooter. In 2011-12, Lavender carved out a role as the Wildcats’ best three-point shooter, and he embraced it. In a pinch, Lavender could shoot with the best of them. In fact, his 48.7 percent three-point shooting ranked third in the country last year. On six different occasions, Lavender came off the bench and nailed four or more shots from beyond the arc. But now Lavender is gone. Before last season, guard Kyle Fogg hoisted up 39,132 shots in the offseason in hopes of improving his already solid three-point jumper. He finished with the second-best percentage (44.4) on the Wildcats, and led the team with 75 made on the season. Fogg is gone. Now, Arizona is left without its two best long distance shooters and with a roster loaded with potential fill-ins, but none that have really proven to have the range of Fogg or Lavender. Head coach Sean Miller said that he is focused on turning the Wildcats into a team that gets to the basket and shoots a lot of free throws. “I’ll be surprised if shooting is one of our problems,” Miller said. “We are attacking at the basket and in the paint first. The good three-point shots will come.” Even so, the Wildcats will need someone to step up to the plate and fill Fogg and Lavender’s role, starting or on the bench, as the team’s go-to guy from beyond the arc. Here are the candidates:

Kevin Parrom

At Media Day on Oct. 10, Miller felt confident saying that Parrom might not only be the team’s best shooter now, but he was all along, even with Fogg and Lavender in the mix. Parrom is coming off a season where he had to deal with injuries and the death of his mother, so his numbers from last year are likely an aberration. He made 14-of-42 three-point attempts in his shortened 20-game season, after connecting on 38 threepointers in the 2010-11 Elite Eight run and at a solid 41.8 percent clip. Miller said that Parrom, who is entering his senior year, was probably the closest to Fogg in terms of how many jumpers he put up in the offseason. “Kevin Parrom shot an inordinate amount of shots [over the summer],” Miller said. “I’m going to say maybe not as many as Kyle, but very close. He never left Tucson, so he had time on his side.”

Solomon Hill

Hill isn’t necessarily the most prolific three-point shooter for the Wildcats, in frequency or accuracy, but he showed at the end of last season that

Forward Solomon Hill (top) and guards Mark Lyons and Kevin Parrom are candidates.

when he has the hot hand, he can be a solid shooter. Hill made a career-high 37 shots from long range in 2011-12, and 27 of them came after Jan. 12. “Solomon shot almost 39 percent (.389) a year ago from three,” Miller said. “He really caught fire in January and February. His shot looks really good and I think he can be consistent.”

Mark Lyons

less than ten points in 12 of the last 16 games.

Jordin Mayes

As with Parrom, Mayes suffered through injuries last season and struggled after playing a key role in the UA’s Elite Eight run. In 2010-11, Mayes hit 45.3 percent of his threepointers, including 4-of-4 in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Last year, Mayes hit just 29 percent of his threes and had 18 games where he hit zero three-pointers. If he’s healthy, he could potentially fill the role.

Lyons, the senior transfer from Xavier, comes to the UA with a reputation as a shoot-first point guard, and about 35 percent of those shots came from beyond the arc last year. Lyons hit 58 three-point jumpers at Gabe York a 39.2 percent clip and had 18 games The freshman guard is probably where he made two or more. the least recognized of the Wildcats’ four highly touted freshman recruits, but his shooting and scorNick Johnson ing ability has certainly caught his The sophomore guard started off teammates and coach’s eye. the season strongly from three, hit“Gabe is a fantastic shooter and ting 25-of-66 threes at a 37.8 percent scorer,” Lyons said. clip in his first 19 games, nailing at He might be buried too deep least one on 12 different occasions. in the guard rotation behind The Wildcats will need more of that Johnson than the one that scored Lyons, Johnson, Mayes and even

Parrom to make too big of an impact, but he has the ability to score from long range. In his senior year of high school, York made 55 threes in 19 games, or 2.9 per game.

Grant Jerrett

This name might come as a surprise, as Jerrett is a 6-foot-10 power forward, but if scouting reports and Miller’s word are any indication, the freshman will be a threat from deep. “Grant Jerrett could be one of our team’s best shooters,” Miller said. “He gives us a different look when he’s in there whether he’s at the four or five because he’s a little bit like Derrick Williams.” Jerrett made 17 threes in 27 games in his senior year of high school, nothing to write home about, but Williams wasn’t much of a shooter in high school either — he made 18 in 31 games. Before being selected as the No. 2 overall pick last year, Williams made an astounding 56.8 percent of his three-pointers.

The Arizona volleyball team snapped its five-game losing streak over the weekend, winning games against Colorado on Sunday and Utah on Friday. The Wildcats took on the Utes on Friday night in Salt Lake City and hung for a 3-2 (25-22, 23-25, 25-22, 23-25, 15-7) win. On Sunday, the Wildcats met the Buffaloes in another game in Boulder, Colo. Arizona struck a quick lead, taking the first two sets and going 3-1 (25-22, 25-16, 25-27, 25-16). “There’s a list of things that we need to accomplish, but I’m pleased that we won and that we’re turning corners,” head coach Dave Rubio said. The Wildcats are 11-8 for the season and now have three Pac12 wins. With the two wins this weekend, Arizona has managed to break its losing streak. Rubio is looking to continue taking steps so that the team is competing at a higher level each week. “I actually like that we travel,” Rubio said. “It brings the team closer and they spend more time with one another whereas when they’re home, they tend to scatter.” As the team gets closer off the court, their chemistry at game time is also progressing, and their skills will only improve with time. “For us, each week is about becoming a more mature team in how we carry ourselves,” Rubio said. “We want to make it so we can compete with the best.” There’s no denying that the Wildcats were thirsty for a win, and the road trip was the perfect opportunity for a confidence boost. Rubio said that the weekend’s opponents were at a slightly different level than the ranked teams but that he’s still happy with the wins. “Our setting was very good this weekend and our serving was especially solid,” Rubio said. “Good serving gives us the opportunity to be in a position to generate better plays.” Rubio said that junior setter Chanel Brown’s serve was particularly helpful this weekend with five serving aces against Colorado and that sophomore outside hitter Madi Kingdon was the offensive guiding force for the team. Kingdon drilled a career high 28 kills against Utah along with back-to-back double doubles this weekend. This is her eighth

Arizona softball takes doubleheader JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

Larry hogan/ Arizona Daily Wildcat THE WILDCATS DOMINATED their two games on Sunday, winning by a combined 16-3.

Arizona softball won its final two games of the Arizona Fall Classic, winning 10-2 over Cypress and 6-1 over Pima on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium. The Wildcats closed out the Classic with their win over Pima, Arizona’s only win that wasn’t a mercy rule triumph. The UA led 2-0 after four innings, and after PCC cut the lead in half with a solo home run in the fifth inning, Arizona scored four more in the bottom of the fifth. “I thought we did a good job,” head coach Mike Candrea said. “The one thing I wanted today was to come out and play the game with a little bit of urgency and I like this team, I like our young kids, they work hard, they’re making good adjustments on the field.” Sophomore catcher Chelsea Goodacre led the way for the Wildcats against the Aztecs with an RBI double and a two-run home run, her third of the weekend. Senior third basemen Brigette Del Ponte had an RBI double and two singles, going 3-3. “I think we grew a lot over the weekend,” Goodacre said. “Today our first game was a little bit slow on the hitting side and then came back in that second game and just really … we wanted to win and showed that passion and I think that’s what gave us a good game.” Junior utility Alex Lavine went 3-3 against Pima and scored a run. Lavine bunted herself on base twice and stole a base. “The one thing that really impressed me today more than anything was our base running,” Candrea said. “You know, very aggressive, looking for extra

bases.” Despite giving up the home run, freshman Nancy Bowling pitched well, striking out nine in six innings and allowing four hits. She was relieved by junior Shelby Babcock, who allowed zero hits in one inning. Arizona opened up play on Sunday with a 10-2 five-inning win over Cypress. The Wildcats won on a two RBI walk off double by freshman third baseman Lauren Young with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth. Young cleared the bases thanks to a throwing error by the Cypress left fielder, which scored the 10th run. The Wildcats jumped out to 5-0 in the first two innings, but Cypress scored while holding Arizona scoreless in the third and fourth innings. Del Ponte had two hits, including an RBI double. Freshman right fielder Gabby Sandstedt also had a two run double. Sophomore shortstop Shelby Pendley had an RBI single. Junior Estela Piñon started in the circle, giving up four hits and two earned runs in four innings pitched. Bowling came in as relief and threw a perfect inning.

zona State will get a chance to try its own style against the conference-leading Ducks. The lower tier of UCLA, Arizona and Washington has shown potential this season, as all three have been ranked at one point or another. But both the Wildcats and Huskies are riding multiple-game losing streaks, albeit against ranked teams, and the Bruins didn’t look great at home against Utah, even if they did manage to take the win. This week Arizona and Washington will get the chance to prove who is the better team while UCLA rests up for its matchup in Tempe in two weeks. Still, none of these teams have shown the consistency or ability to really contend for the Pac-12 title.

SICK HAPPENS answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships Increase your sexual IQ in minutes with a visit to the SexTalk archives at


I’ve been faking orgasms for 2 years. Is that wrong?

A. There are two problems here: 1) You are being untruthful in order to please your partner – which may have larger implications for your relationship, and 2) You’re missing out on all the fun! Some women are great at faking it, as the well-known “orgasm in the diner” scene demonstrates in the movie When Harry Met Sally. Acting accolades aside, is hiding the truth a good idea? Hardly ever. The “faker” usually ends up feeling empty and disappointed. And, chances are, your partner suspects your dishonesty, and may feel badly, too. You can’t change the past, but you can opt for openness in your next intimate encounter. If you’re able to “cum” during self-stimulation, guide your partner or tell them what feels good to you. If you haven’t ever had the “big O,” consider reading one of the many books on the subject. Check out The Elusive Orgasm: A Woman’s Guide to Why She Can’t and How She Can Orgasm, by Vivienne Cass, Ph.D. Chances

are your partner will be excited to try something new. You’ll both be thrilled when you have an honest orgasm. Sex isn’t just for one person’s enjoyment. It can be exciting and wonderful when there is a mutual desire for pleasure. If your partner doesn’t know that you are sexually unsatisfied, they can’t solve the problem. It’s up to you to help find a solution, come clean, and communicate honestly. While many women struggle to achieve the highly-prized orgasm during vaginal intercourse, they miss out on dozens of ways to experience pleasure in other ways – oral sex, manual stimulation, fantasy, etc. If you are in the habit of squelching your wants and needs to satisfy your partner, it’s time to take action and begin communicating what feels good to you. This is an opportunity to explore and discover a world of pleasure... for both of you!

8 reasons you should be watching


If you aren’t watching “Parks and Recreation,” you’re missing out. There are a million reasons to tune in. Here are a few of our favorites: Reasons




The man. The carnivore. The mustache. He is the Hercules of our hearts. He has a pyramid of greatness because he knows what greatness is. In his immortal words, “Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.”



April & Andy’s relationship


At the end of the day they all care about each other... even Jerry

Everyone on the show genuinely cares about each other despite their differences. They’re like one giant dysfunctional family you wish you were a part of. They rally around one another and work together to solve problems. Does it sound like a “Sesame Street” lesson? Yep. But we dare you to watch this group work together and not feel your heart grow at least three sizes.

8 Maybe government Reason

doesn’t have to suck There’s something about television’s most lovable idiot being married to one of the most hateful and apathetic characters around that just screams adorable. The contrast between their personalities is one of the most hilarious things about “Parks and Recreation,” and the fact that together they’re like children trapped in adult bodies makes it even better. Nothing about it should work, but somehow it does.

In season 1, city planner Mark Brendanawicz tells Leslie that “it’s going to be a long, uphill battle. You are going to be super annoyed with all the people who want you to fail. There is a sea of red tape, endless road blocks.” Leslie replies, “Screw it. I’m gonna try to do it anyway.” Imagine how much Congress could get done if they would just screw it, and try to do it anyway.

The losers make this novel a winner Poetry reading tackles beauty, ‘bad things’ ANDREW CONLOGUE Arizona Daily Wildcat

Despite our national preoccupation with winning, we can’t help but root for a loser. And in Johnny Shaw’s new book, “Big Maria,” the protagonists are about the biggest losers there can be. Harry Schmittberger (who has a long-standing nickname that’s easy to guess) is a Blythe, Calif. prison guard on disability who does little more than get drunk and sit around in his dirty trailer. Ricky is a married man with a daughter and ekes out his living by driving oldsters to Mexico for cheaper drugs. And Frank is an old Chemehuevi Native American who is dying of cancer, living his last days in constant fear of his incredibly controlling daughter Mercedes. They’re just a trio of unrelated sad sacks until Harry, down and out in the parking lot behind a bar, overhears a conversation about a literal goldmine in the Chocolate Mountains of Arizona. It’s right in the middle of a U.S. Army ordnance testing range, but that doesn’t dissuade Harry from looking into it. In time, he recruits his new friends Ricky and Frank into his scheme, and the gang of losers sets out to turn its consistently terrible fortunes around. What follows can only be described as delightfully madcap and disgustingly enjoyable. The first five pages of the book are actually the hardest to get through, with abundant graphic descriptions of bodily functions, but if readers can get past that, they

are in for a hilarious adventure. Harry, Ricky and Frank run into insane obstacle after insane obstacle. Many of their difficulties are of their own, ill-advised making. Self-inflicted injuries occur as a result of stupidity, and there are more scenes in hospitals in this book than in most medical thrillers. Slowly but surely, however, through a lifetime of terrible, terrible luck, the three men march on to their destiny. “Big Maria” is a gloriously fun adventure, but perhaps the best thing about it is how much the reader ends up feeling for these poor bozos. Make no mistake, in addition to being total screwups, the three men are really not good people. But they are some of the most interesting characters to come around in a long time, and the reader can’t help but root for them as they endure setback after setback. Though the antics are hilarious, they are also surprisingly poignant. Set in perhaps the worst corner of our very own Arizona, “Big Maria” is a book about how funny and heartening it can be when the bottom of the human barrel shoots for the top against all odds. It’s a highly recommended read for winners and losers alike, of which there is a bit in every single one of us.
