By Lívia Fialho ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Planting more trees could mean more green for Arizona cotton growers. The agriculture sector in the Southwest may make more money if tree planting becomes a profitable business in the South as a result of cap-and-trade, a researcher at the UA’s Institute of the Environment says. The impact of cap-and-trade could lead to new forms of business, one of which would be tree planting in places like Mississippi. The policy, which aims to mitigate industrial greenhouse gas emissions contributing to global climate change, is part of the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. After a certain period, restrictions on emissions would rise and costs would go up, but before that, there would be enough time for industries to adjust, according to George Frisvold, a professor and agricultural-resource economics specialist at the Institute of the Environment. By adjusting and taking advantage of government incentives to fight climate change, Mississippi farmers could start growing trees instead of cotton, indirectly helping competing Arizona cotton farmers. Frisvold conducted an analysis of how the bill would affect the agriculture sector in the Southwest, and found it would not have any significant agricultural impacts until 2030. The agriculture sector, within capand-trade, would not be directly regulated or limited. Rather, greater effects would be felt by energy industries, leading to higher energy costs for the agricultural industry. In the policy, industries would have to purchase or be given permits for carbon emissions, increasing their costs, according to Frisvold. With agriculture offsets becoming potential income sources, the government could start paying farmers to plant trees to reduce carbon emissions. In the South, people would take land out of production to do that, and “up to 30 million acres in the U.S.” could be used to plant trees, Frisvold said. The process would

EVERYONE HAS A STORY SexTalk, KFC and world travels Hamilton was inspired after working at a fast food restaurant during high school.

By Abigail Richardson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT “Everyone Has a Story” is a weekly segment in the Arizona Daily Wildcat that aims to tell the story of an interesting person on the UA campus. Lee Ann M. Hamilton, the assistant director of Campus Health Service, is known for promoting sexual health education and giving lectures where she has shown the durability of condoms by putting them over a football and using teddy bears to show how sexually transmitted diseases are passed, but her job encompasses much more than that. She also covers a wide variety of topics such as alcohol, general health and wellness, skin cancer, health and safety abroad, suicide prevention, first aid, and sleep education.

“Guys are more like microwaves and women are more like crock pots,” — Lee Ann Hamilton in an excerpt of SexTalk “I worked at Kentucky Fried Chicken when I was in high school, and they sent all of the cooks to a disease prevention conference on how to handle raw chicken safely,” Hamilton said. “It was done by a microbiologist from the county health department. We got paid to be there instead of working for minimum wage, cooking chicken and getting hot and

sweaty. I was just fascinated because this man talked about salmonella and how you have to be careful preparing, storing and serving the chicken.” After the conference, Hamilton approached the microbiologist and inquired about his job. “I thought it was really cool,” she said. “I changed my major to microbiology and then realized I didn’t really want to work in a lab. It occurred to me later, what I like about what that man did was he gave scientific information about preventing disease and about preserving health.” Hamilton is a Tucson native who graduated from the UA with a Bachelor of Science degree in health science and a master ’s degree in higher education. Before completing her degree, she took a year off of school to travel with a group called “Up with People” that

Have you been following the Mel Gibson, Oksana (Grigorieva) phone message, verbal abuse drama? Oh yeah, it’s all over E! OK, so I heard that they wanted Mel Gibson to appear in “The Hangover 2,” but apparently the cast did not want that at all. How would you feel if he did make an appearance, do you think he deserves it? I wouldn’t really care if he made an appearance or not, but I have also heard that he is horrible to work with and he yells a lot at the cast. In addition, I’ve heard he is abusive to women and he’s apparently a terror to work with, so no. Have you ever had an experience similar to the one of “The Hangover”? Like any crazy mornings that you found animals in your house? Yeah, I’m trying to think. We had a birthday party for one of my roommates a few weeks ago, Alize; a lot of people know her. So there are five of us that live together, and we thought it would be a really good idea for all five of us to each invite, like, all of our friends. So there was like 250 people in our house that can’t fit that many. The next morning we woke up and felt like we lived in a frat house. There was broken glass everywhere, pictures had fallen down, the whole house was sticky and dirty. It was the biggest joke. Our friend walks in and goes “This smells worse than D. Chi. I would rather sit in the D. Chi bathroom and watch TV than sit on your couch.” We proceeded to not clean for three days, then we finally did. So no more parties for you guys? No. There was not a lion though. No lions, no tigers. What is something in the near future for you on your path? Well, this summer I want to intern in L.A. I have a friend who was with Taylor Swift last year, working with a promotion company, so I am hoping she can hook me up with a sick internship because I really want to work in PR with, like, music and movies. Who would you want to represent? I would for sure want to be Kid Cudi’s personal assistant, or represent him. He is so awesome. He is just so adorable, he knows his crap and he knows what’s up in life. I mean, I am going to be Kid Cudi’s personal assistant. Favorite Kid Cudi song? “5 Ways To Make a Record.” He’s alternative, he’s deep and his music sounds so, so different. Big fan, big fan. — Caroline Nachazel

Ferrari World amusement park opens in Abu Dhabi Hold onto your mouse ears, Ferrari is bringing pedal-to-themetal thrills to the world of theme parks in a bid to tap into a love for speed and luxury cars among people in the oil-rich Middle East. The Italian automaker plans to rev up an arena more known for cartoon characters and superheroes when Ferrari World opens Wednesday with what the company says is the world’s fastest roller coaster and a 20-story tower ride that duplicates the G-forces felt by race car drivers.

Accustomed to running at the front, Ferrari is the first sports car manufacturer to make a foray into theme parks, calling it the world’s largest indoor park and the first in the Middle East. And like a driver setting up a pass, Ferrari has chosen its spot carefully. Situated just down the road from the Yas Marina Circuit that hosts Formula One’s season finale next month, the park’s location in a region with some of the world’s highest per-capita incomes offers advantages to a sport that has

seen its fortunes suffer during the recent economic downturn. “The locals are very interested in cars, fast cars. You can see that when you drive around,” said Khaled al Qubaisi of the United Arab Emirates, the only Middle Eastern driver competing in the Porsche Supercup Series. “That is something within us, going fast and outperforming in whatever we ride whether it be the horses or cars,” he said. ­— Associated Press

A cappella group ‘note’ worthy By Steven Kwan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT As a choir member at the UA last year, Meg Grover wanted to do more and she missed the fun of singing in an a cappella group. The UA only had one a cappella group, Cat-Call , buts its members are all men. So last October, the pre-nursing sophomore decided to form another group, Noteriety, with six male and six female singers. “It actually took the longest time to come up with that name,” Grover said. “First we were just called ‘Oh, we’re an a cappella group from the University of Arizona.’ So it was kind of lengthy.” As Noteriety’s founder and president, Grover wanted the club to do more than just provide free concerts to UA and Tucson. “I wanted to bring something to people in hospices and nursing homes that would give them momentary happiness,” she said. “I just wanted to bring a good feeling into those sorts of places.” Grover has been singing in choirs since elementary school, but she got hooked on a cappella during high school. Near the end of her senior year, Grover formed her first a cappella group, Femata, but it didn’t work out as she had hoped. “We had problems with people practicing on their own time and

taking a really long time to learn songs,” she said. “I don’t even think we had any performances, but then again, we started with a really difficult piece.” She had chosen “Hide and Seek” by British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap, a song that was sampled prominently in the Jason Derulo song, “Whatcha Say.” Learning from this experience, Grover said all Noteriety members take on responsibilities such as choreography, writing for grants and providing piano accompaniment. Noteriety was officially recognized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona as a club last spring and has performed on campus in the Cellar Bistro, at the nearby Epic Café and in nursing homes. The group has performed or is currently working on several songs, including “This Love” by Maroon 5 , “For the Longest Time” by Billy Joel and “Faith” by George Michael . While Noteriety has not yet performed on campus this semester, Grover said it is working on new songs for UA students. In spite of the popularity of “Glee,” Grover admits to not being a fan of the TV show. “‘Glee’ drives me crazy,” Grover said. “And it reminds me of ‘High School Musical.’”

involvement aspect to it.” During her year of travel, Hamilton visited Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Luxembourg and 14 states. She learned a lot about promoting events by doing press releases, interviews with the press, talking on radio shows and speaking to different groups of people. “I saw the capitals of all those countries before I ever saw Washington, D.C.,” she said. Hamilton is still in touch with all of the

families she stayed with and the people she traveled with. “I thought of it as an experience of a lifetime, but what it turned out to be was something that has provided a lifetime of experiences,” Hamilton said. “It’s a great program for building bridges of understanding between people of the world. We all have our differences that make us unique as cultures and people, but we are all pretty much the same.”

about his bicycle since reporting the incident. Bill Davidson, marketing specialist for Parking and Transportation Services , agrees U-Locks are the safest way to secure a bike. “We sell them at Parking and Transportation Services,” Davidson said, “but UAPD might be able to help more on the security advising.” The most common locks that are broken or breached are the chain locks or the cable locks. “Chain locks and cable locks are easily cut with bolt cutters and sometimes even wire cutters,” said UAPD officer Joe Bermudez. Chain locks often have a key or combination lock attached to it and a long enough chain is passed through the wheels and frame of the bicycle, and attached to a rack. “We recommend the use of the U-Locks because they’re definitely harder to break through,” Bermudez said. “They are more secure, thicker and harder to break through.” There have been 33 bicycle thefts reported this month, according to UAPD’s public records as of Oct. 20. “It’s important to have your bicycle’s serial number too,” Davidson said. UAPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Juan Alvarez recommends reporting the theft as soon as possible, and to have your bicycle registered with Parking and Transportation Services.

Arizona doesn’t need Jesse Kelly Andrew Shepherd

T

Arizona Daily Wildcat

he race in the 8th Congressional District between Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and Republican challenger Jesse Kelly can best be described by the elderly couple sitting behind me at last week’s debate: “It’s good to see grown-ups misbehave.” Anybody with a television or radio has seen the constant stream of attack ads between the two, further polarizing and angering the electorate. This race has been annoyingly light on the issues and — like so many modern political contests — heavy on the personal attacks. During last week’s debate, candidates spat out the same, redundant, overly rehearsed campaign talking points and exchanged jabs over each other’s previous businesses, backgrounds and so-called ulterior motives. It seems this particular race is about Giffords having to play defense and Kelly rallying the angry electorate with populist anti-big government rhetoric and hawkish, yet politically popular, statements on the border. However, when one gets past the distractions seen on TV, and examines the positions held by Kelly, it becomes pretty obvious that the correct choice this November is to send Giffords back to Washington, D.C. Kelly, a strong conservative and favorite of the Tea Party movement, is about as savvy a politician as any. He may be a political outsider, but he knows how to rally people together and capitalize on the vast anti-government sentiment present throughout the country. Both physically and politically imposing, Kelly is a strong speaker who has become very good at reciting popular Tea Party slogans and comparing his opponent to the perennial enemies of conservatism: Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. However, his views on the issues are too far to the right for this fairly moderate congressional district, and if elected, he would put the ideals of the Tea Party movement above the needs of the electorate. Kelly prides himself as someone looking to cut out the waste in Washington, but at what expense? Among the many things he would like to cut, if elected, is the system of federal grants and loans to universities, claiming they cause universities to be bloated and are the reason for rising costs. The jury is still out on whether this is true, but cutting federal research funding would greatly hurt UA. As a primarily research institution, the university relies on such funding and a drastic cut would fundamentally change many aspects of how UA works. Kelly is also a staunch opponent of earmarks, claiming they are equivalent to legalized bribery. While it’s true that some earmark requests from congressmen can be a bit egregious, earmarks make up less than 1 percent of the federal budget and fund many necessary infrastructure projects around the country, creating jobs and taking care of necessary problems. In addition, Kelly is a supporter of supply-side economics, or as he calls it, Reaganomics. This is the idea that cutting taxes actually increases government revenue, something that sounds good in theory but that the Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush years proved doesn’t work in practice. He claims to be a fiscal hawk, but his economic policy is modeled after the policies of Bush and Reagan, presidents who oversaw massive deficits. Kelly is also a hawk on immigration, claiming anything that’s not mass deportation of illegal immigrants currently in the United States to be amnesty. This idea is unrealistic, as you can’t simply round up millions of people and deport them away. Not only does our economy benefit from immigrant labor, it’s impossible from a logistical standpoint. Kelly is a favorite of the anti-biggovernment crowd — who feels the government can never do anything effective, nor should play any role in the economy. They wrongly feel that government is always the enemy and the cause of many of society’s problems. While criticism of the functionality of certain aspects of government is healthy to the system, disavowing all things government won’t solve the crisis our country currently faces. In November, the residents of Congressional District 8 should look past the misleading ads put out by both sides and look at the issues. After doing so, it becomes very clear that Southern Arizona does not need the radically antigovernment policies of Jesse Kelly. — Andrew Shepherd is a political science senior.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Sour seniors should see sunny side Tyler Quillin Arizona Daily Wildcat

I

t’s senior year of college. It’s the graduation you have been waiting for, working for, yearning for. Everyone is waiting on the sidelines, cheering you on, waiting to see what you will do after this great milestone achievement is in your rear view. There is a big bright world awaiting you with open arms. Or that is how it was described to us, at least. Senior year might be the most anticlimactic event to happen in our lives. I feel like every five steps I take, someone is waiting to ask me what is next for me. I am ecstatic for those who have everything figured out, whether that be Grandma’s couch for a year or a legitimate job offer. However, the reality for the rest of us is that we now have the next seven months to arrange our life’s trajectory. It is a daunting task that seems to rain on the emotional exuberance we thought would come on the day of our collegiate graduation.

Instead of the happy day of celebration we hope for, it seems more than likely to be a day of dread, thinking of the impending task ahead. We look toward an economy that is the worst our country has seen since the Great Depression, which makes finding a job sound like that old saying Grandpa used to use about finding a needle in a haystack. As a result of the job market, graduate school admissions offices are experiencing unprecedented influxes of applications, making it harder than ever to stay in school in the hopes of weathering the economic storm while increasing our employability. Those summer internships we were supposed to find to improve our attractiveness to employers were more competitive than ever as well, with unemployed mid-level managers with several years’ work experience in the running with us.

Upperclassmen: Move on from Natty Lite

with psychedelic artwork and names like “Hop-apocalypse” and “Rancid Brew-Ha-Ha.” You will find a vast array of radically different beers, dark to light, malty to hoppy, bubbly to not-sobubbly. With enough visits (trust me, it gets addicting), you will soon be able to discern slight changes in character and flavor, subtle hints of coriander and clove, and the texture of fine beer. With this newfound skill in your pocket, you can now walk confidently into parties, laugh at the Keystone Light on the table, drink it anyway, make that overused joke about how “it’s like water,” and then puke it up onto Stacey’s shoes. Old habits die hard. Try a few more trips to Plaza; progress is a slow beast. — Johnny McKay is a media arts senior.

A large part of any self-respecting UA student’s college career is reverent attention to homework and attending lectures on time. Laugh out loud, just kidding; actually, it’s beer. The effervescent, amber liquid pervades much of the college culture, flowing like the Euphrates through the campus, into red cups, and then through the livers of many studious individuals. As you begin to get older, you might just realize that there is more to this phenomenon than just Keystone Light. Freshmen and sophomores — don’t worry about this. This doesn’t apply to you yet; you should continue to be considered an aged beer expert every time you spring for PBR instead of Natty Lite. Just skip this article and look for yourself in the Police Beat. The rest of you — it is time to become a beer connoisseur, a proverbial master of your palette, and just an overall annoyingly pretentious drinker of beer. I immediately prescribe a visit to Plaza Liquors & Fine Wines, off of Campbell Avenue, which is the Willy Wonka Factory for people who love to drink beer. You will walk in and find your senses assailed with all sorts of microbrewed wonderfulness. Every cool, hip beer will be there, bottles decorated

Awkward walking situations plague campus

Let’s take a moment to digress from any subject of real substance to discuss the walking habits of students on campus, primarily the attempts by many to avoid awkward walking. What do I mean by this? To walk awkwardly is to walk at the same pace next to someone you do not know. Most of us avoid this kind of walking like the plague. For some reason,

What are we to do? It is easy to pout and become dejected with your life’s outlook after you put in so much work and showed so much dedication, to look out into the dark abysmal opportunities the “real world” presents us. Rather, we can see this as yet another challenge for our generation. The baby boomer generation did not have this type of adversity to fight through. Instead, they were faced with the tail-end of the Cold War, Vietnam, and the sexual revolution. Whereas, the generation before them fought through the Great Depression and one, if not two, world wars. I like to look at this cloudy forecast and see it as the time of character-building opportunity. We, as a generation, have a great deal to fix and work through. Let us push forward with determination, integrity and resolve. The restoration of this country to the global leader we have been in the past lies on our shoulders and it begins with you. — Tyler Quillin is a senior majoring in philosophy and English.

whether it is social norms or an innate sense, there is something strangely perturbing about walking next to a stranger at the same pace for a prolonged amount of time. We can delve into why later; what is interesting here is that we all try and avoid it. Everybody splits into two different types of walkers: the invigorated gung ho, I-have-to-get-to-class type walkers and the too-cool-for-school type walkers. Both mostly do their job in eliminating awkward walking situations. The former usually walks right past everyone else, killing any chance for awkwardness, except for the people who think you’re a loser for going that fast. The latter uses the opposite tactics to slowly let others pass by as they coolly amble about. For guys, some of the most awkward walking times are the ones when you attempt to not seem like a stalker to a girl in front of you, even if they happen to be taking the same route that you are. Often, we take an alternative route or try the aforementioned options to offset similar walking speeds, which normally neutralize the unwanted stalkerishness. Remember to always vary your walking speeds and try alternative routes to fend of the strangeness, and together, we can make this campus less awkward one step at a time. — Brett Haupt is a journalism junior.

Research links smoking, dementia Permanente’s Division of Research followed 21,123 middle-aged Kaiser members who participated in a survey between 1978 and 1985 and then were followed for an average of 23 years. After controlling for other factors that can contribute to dementia — such as education level, race, age, diabetes, heart disease and substance abuse — the study found a significant link with heavy smoking at middle age. Compared to non-smokers, people who smoked two packs a day or more had a 114 percent increased risk of dementia (more than double), while people who smoked one to two packs a day had a 44 percent increased risk. Those who smoked

McClatchy Newspapers LOS ANGELES — Heavy smoking at middle age more than doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia later in life, according to one of the first long-term studies to examine the issue. Smoking has a clear effect on the heart and lungs, but whether it also damages the brain has been controversial. The study, published Monday in the Archives of Internal Medicine, overcomes some of the obstacles that have made it difficult to assess such a link. To get a more complete look, researchers in Finland, Sweden and the health plan Kaiser

climate continued from page 1

a half-pack to one pack a day had a 37 percent increased risk. Middle-aged people who described themselves as former smokers did not appear to have an increased risk of later dementia. One way that smoking might increase the risk of dementia would be via the narrowing of blood vessels in the brain, a process that leads to the well-established increased risk of stroke from the habit, said Rachel A. Whitmer, a research scientist at Kaiser Permanente’s Division of Research and the principal investigator of the study. However, even people who smoked heavily at mid-life and did not have any subsequent strokes were at higher risk for dementia, Whitmer said.

Researcher: ‘If the price is right, there’s lots of things people will do’

take place over 40 years, and be complete around 2050. The policy would also be determined by projections on the availability of renewable fuels, which affects the price of carbon in the future, possibly making tree planting a very profitable business. “It depends on how much someone’s willing to pay you. If the price is right, there’s lots of things people will do,” Frisvold said. Farmers could also experience some indirect increases in their income. As costs go up, production would be lower and prices would rise, bringing in more revenue to counteract lowered production. Frisvold’s study, funded by the American Farmland Trust, looked primarily at how the cap-andtrade bill would affect corn, soybean, wheat and cotton production. Overall, Frisvold concluded, the bill would increase farmers’ costs, but there is alternative income potential that varies by the type of farm and location. “A lot of studies either try to sugarcoat this or are saying this is the end of the world. I think the reality is a lot more subtle and complex than that,” Frisvold said. He recently received funding

from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for further research. Frisvold will look at which specific farms will benefit and which will be hurt by the policy, as well as the offset potential for particular farming sectors in the Southwest.

Right now, cap-and-trade might be best bet

In the tough current economic context, cap-and-trade may be the best approach in mitigating the effects of climate change, said Gregg Garfin, deputy director for science translation and outreach at the institute. Because of the economy, reducing emissions has “become a sensitive issue,” he said. The policy may be politically expedient because businesses would be more open to it as opposed to a tax. Adapting, another way to deal with climate change, is harder to manage, as it requires more coordinated planning. Tucson has an adaptation as well as a mitigation plan, while Phoenix has established the latter in properties operated by the city government, without including citizens and local businesses. Some headway has been made in dealing with climate change, Garfin said. Cooperation at different state

and federal levels to address the matter has also improved. But not enough resources are being invested or available to hire qualified people that would lead to faster progress, he said. “For every person who’s working dealing with either mitigation or adaptation, they’re working a job and a half, maybe two jobs,” Garfin said. Engaging and bringing awareness to the public is also important so efforts dealing with climate change can succeed, he said. Public support of public agencies is one example. To implement changes in resource management and energy efficiency, for instance, stakeholders such as board of directors or city councils take in account the public’s opinion. “These institutions, they’re keenly aware of public perception and they, by and large, are … cautious, and they want to have that public support before they go ahead in doing something that’s risky … or expensive,” he said. But Garfin is encouraged by current changes. “Things are happening,” he said. “When I first started at my job here 10 years ago, things weren’t happening. And in some cases, things are happening at a good pace.”

us that our customers want that. They want sustainable, they want natural, they want compostable, and we’re going to give it to them.” Many restaurants in the student union already use natural, organic or local products. All the chicken used in UA-run restaurants is hormone- and antibiotic-free, and the burgers and bratwurst served at the Cellar are produced in Arizona. Additionally, tomatoes and cucumbers come from a UA farm several months out of the year. The offerings have environmental benefits as well as nutritional ones. “They have some really fantastic environmentally-friendly options. If you go out to most restaurants you can’t find this stuff,” said Hana Feeney, nutrition counselor for Campus Health Service. “An organic, grass-fed burger means something environmentally but also nutritionally.” Feeney recommends the new lentil salad or tabouli, a Mediterranean parsley and bulgur salad, at 3 Cheeses & a Noodle, as well as entrees at the Cellar. The dishes not only keep students healthier down the road but also have positive short-term affects. “The here and now is huge,” Feeney said. “If you have that typical fried food lunch, you’re more full, your concentration is worse and you have larger fluctuations.” Healthy choices are ready available with a little searching, according to Feeney. “There really are some great options there,” she said. Some students look for these healthy and organic choices when eating at the student union. “It’s really nice to see,” said

She is also trying to bring organic, hydroponic lettuce to Core but said it can be difficult to find suppliers capable of handling the job. “The problem with most little guys is they cannot keep up with our production,” Christie said. “I mean, it’s just overwhelming.” Dining Services changes menus based on input from student surveys. Christie said organic offerings are an increasingly popular request. “It’s important because (students) wanted it,” Christie said. “It’s important because I think we need it. The awareness is huge. It’s so different from even five years ago. And we have to stay on top.”

Second door damaged in serial break-ins

A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the UA Department of Emergency Medicine in the College of Medicine building after receiving notice of a burglary. The officer spoke with a UA employee on Thursday at 3:22 p.m, who showed him a black iron rod screen door, which was bolted to the building. The top portion of the screen had been welded to the iron, but had become detached. The officer saw that a gap was left in the door, though he noted it was not big enough for a person to fit through. There was no damage done to the actual door. There were also no signs of tampering with the iron bars over the screen portion of the door. The officer examined some of the other doors in the same building and determined that there was no way the screen could have come out of the weld on its own. The employee told the officer the screen had not been damaged on Oct. 15, and that staff had found it like this at 8 a.m. on Oct. 18. The employee told the officer she believed this occurred over the weekend and that it could be connected to another similar case. There were no suspects or items of value. The employee said a welder would come the next day to fix the door.

Lost set of five keys

A man contacted UAPD at 6 p.m. on Thursday, saying he had lost his set of keys on campus near the CĂŠsar E. ChĂĄvez building. He said he last remembered having his keys at approximately 2 p.m. that day. He realized he had lost them at 5 p.m. The key ring was silver, and he said it held one key to a Saturn automobile, two miscellaneous silver keys, one bronze key and one bicycle lock key. No further information is available at this point.

Dorm beds are uncomfortable but this is new ‌

A UA student was transported to University Medical Center at 8:22 p.m. on Thursday because she was having hip pain and was unable to walk. A UAPD officer went to the third floor of Pima Residence Hall and directed Tucson Fire Department to park closer to the east side of the dorm for easier access. The officer went to one of the rooms in the residence hall and met with the resident assistant on duty, who was assisting the student. TFD arrived and assessed her full condition. The student said she was walking to the bathroom when her left leg gave out and she fell to the floor. She said she had been having problems with that leg and didn’t know what was wrong with it. She assessed her pain as a six on a scale of one to 10. She talked to her parents, who said they would meet her at the emergency room. The paramedics arranged for an ambulance to transport her to UMC.

She’s fine, probably just a heavy sleeper

A UAPD officer responded to Coronado Residence Hall at 12:38 a.m. on Wednesday because a resident was unresponsive. She was, however, still breathing. The officer entered the room and detected a strong smell of alcohol. He approached the student, who was on her bed. She was completely unresponsive to her roommates, who were shaking her and yelling her name. The officer approached the bed and smelled alcohol coming from the woman. It was even stronger than when he first entered the room. Her two roommates also confirmed that she had been drinking. The resident assistants at the scene had found a bottle of liquor in the room prior to the officer arriving. Tucson Fire Department arrived and checked the student’s vitals. They advised that she was stable enough to stay in her room and sleep. The woman was not transported to the hospital. She was however, diverted to the Dean of Students Office for a reference of minor in possession of alcohol.

DWsports Stoops unsure who will Foles start at QB against UCLA back at

Tim Kosch Sports Editor 520•626•2956 sports@wildcat.arizona.edu

practice Monday By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Quarterback Nick Foles watches the Wildcats alongside head coach Mike Stoops during Arizona’s 44-14 win over Washington. Foles returned to practice Monday for the first time since injuring his right knee against Washington State on Oct. 16.

By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat If the Arizona coaching staff knows who is going to start at quarterback Saturday against UCLA, they clearly don’t want anybody to know about it until game time. “We certainly don’t want to tip our hand what we’re doing offensively,” head coach Mike Stoops said Monday. Matt Scott was tremendous against Washington last Saturday, combining for 298 total yards and two scores. But Nick Foles “continues to improve,” according to Stoops and is “questionable” for Saturday as he nurses the right knee that kept him out against the Huskies.

“Nick is mending as planned,” Stoops said. “His status for this game is questionable at this point.” Foles suited up in full pads last Saturday, warmed up and even trotted out to midfield for the coin toss. He even practiced on Monday for the first time since he suffered the injury against Washington State. But Arizona wants to force the Bruins to plan for both a mobile quarterback like Scott as well as a pocket passer like Foles. “I think with Matt (Scott) and Nick (Foles) that can be a whole different ball game for somebody else’s situation, and I’m glad it’s their headache, not mine,” said codefensive coordinator Tim Kish. Foles’ status for Saturday’s game obviously depends on how

he fares in practice this week, but even if he is ready to go, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Wildcats withhold the information until they take the field. Regardless of who is under center, Arizona players and coaches see the quarterback situation as a good problem to have, and are equally confident in Scott and Foles. “Truthfully, I’m happy either way because both guys played phenomenal,” said senior tackle Adam Grant. “I just want to get the ‘W’ in the column.”

Scott, Vassallo named Pac-10 Players of the Week

In his first start in 16 games, Scott took home Pac-10 Offensive Player

of the Week honors for his stellar performance against Washington. The junior quarterback went 18for-22 for 233 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and a 200.78 passer rating, while rushing for 65 yards on seven carries. “He had a (passer) rating of 200. That’s the first time I’ve ever heard of anything like that,” Grant said of Scott. “I’m proud of the guy. He played great.” Scott wasn’t the only Wildcat to take home Pac-10 POW honors. Junior college transfer linebacker Paul Vassallo earned the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week after collecting a game- and careerhigh 14 tackles to go along with a sack. The 14 tackles were the most since former Arizona linebacker FOOTBALL, page 8

Hoops building excitement

Golf falling behind

Bryan Roy Arizona Daily Wildcat Is it too early to call last weekend the renaissance of Arizona athletics? The school’s 125th birthday bash witnessed a football romp against Washington, a basketball scrimmage which drew more than 10,000 fans and Richard Jefferson getting Iced at Frog & Firkin. Those 10,000 fans outdid what every other Pac-10 school averages for their regular season attendance. UA basketball coach Sean Miller began a 1 p.m. tipoff by congratulating the No. 15-ranked football team’s 6-1 start to the season. After the scrimmage, he all but used the word “surprised” to describe his reaction to the many fans who turned up for an early afternoon scrimmage following the football game that ended at 10:30 p.m. “I don’t want to use the word ‘surprised’ because I’m never surprised at the passion of our crowd, of what we have going here,” Miller said. “But watching that football game last night and seeing the team play the way we did with such a huge crowd … is amazing. It gave our players a great feel for what it was like to play with a big crowd.” From a fan’s perspective, it’s tough to evaluate or take much away from a scrimmage, but Sunday’s line between theatrics and business provided the ideal

spark for a preseason that could’ve easily been overshadowed by a football Rose Bowl run. Of all guys, it was UA junior Brendon Lavender who became the crowd favorite after pulling off a cartwheel-to-roundoff backflip followed by a dunk with two cheerleaders at his side before the game. He thought of it the night before. No practice. The last time he had done a backflip was two or three years ago. Coach told him not to, but no worries. “Last night, just thinking about creative stuff to get the crowd on my side,” Lavender said. “I don’t think anyone’s every pulled cheerleaders on the floor with them. I’m 6-foot-4 so they don’t think I could do that stuff. “I just did it. If I was gonna be worried, I was gonna fall.” After that, 10,675 fans stuck around to watch a glorified practice. But why? Why the interest after a team coming off its longest offseason in decades? Attendance has always remained the Pac10’s best even throughout the rocky Olson-O’Neill-Pennell transition. But what’s so special about this team? For a roster with a depth chart that looks more like a scatter plot, how has this team outdone the Believe Campaign of 2009 — a

In an almost improbable recovery, Wildcats’ quarterback Nick Foles was dressed, threw warm up tosses before Saturday’s game and even jogged onto the field at Arizona Stadium to participate in the coin toss. But when the redshirt junior went down with a dislocated right kneecap 10 days ago against Washington State, Arizona fans feared the worse. “The right kneecap popped out and went to the right side of my leg,” Foles said. “It was pretty scary, the thought of it. I’ve never had a knee injury, and just to look down at my leg and see the shape I was in, I thought the worst. Definitely thought that it could be over for this year.” But Foles said he is “way ahead of schedule” in rehabbing the injury that usually sidelines players for three to six weeks. Instead of returning to Arizona after the Washington State game, Foles went to his hometown of Austin, Texas, to begin the rehabilitation process. He stayed for three days and visited Dr. Brent Voth and Dr. Jeff Freeman — who have worked on athletes like Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt — of North Star Manual Therapy in Georgetown, Texas. Foles said he had been going to North Star for eight years and that he attended sessions there for a few hours per day, riding stationary bikes as part of the rehab process. With the help of Voth and Freeman, Foles said he came in wearing a splint and left jogging. He didn’t take any painkillers; he said he just “deals with it.” He has a sleeve-like brace to keep the kneecap in place. “It feels good. It’s progressing every day. It’s a day-to-day thing, so that’s how we’re judging it,” Foles said. “(I’m) just going into rehab every day a couple times and doing what I can to get it better.” Meanwhile, Foles’ return to practice yesterday seems optimistic that he will return to the field sometime soon. Although he doesn’t have an exact timeline, Foles said he would continue daily rehab activities to try to get his leg strength and balance back.

Brendon Lavender drives the lane at the Red/Blue scrimmage on Sunday. Lavender’s dunking abilities and the progress of the Wildcats basketball team wowed the crowd of over 10,000 at McKale Center.

season when no-name assistant Russ Pennell led a team to the Sweet 16? “People are saying this is one of the most favorite teams since 2002, 2003, so we have a lot to live up to,” face-of-the-franchise Derrick Williams said. “We’re going to be real good this year.” It’s hard not to like times when Momo Jones nods his head with a smirk on his way back on defense. It’s hard not to like the humbled, grounded and sometimes even shy Williams,

letting the ball do the talking. It’s hard not to like Lavender’s excitement after winning the dunk contest yet level-headed demeanor when asked the toughest question after the game: Do you think you’ll get much playing time this season? “I don’t know what Coach has in store, but I know everyday I’m working harder to help the team,” Lavender said. “Whatever I can do to help the team win.” If winning is as contagious as it seems, they’re in good hands.

The UA men’s golf team is struggling in the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Windermere, Fla. The team has slipped into 15th place heading into the last round of the tournament. The Wildcats have been led by senior Tarquin MacManus who is in a tie for eighth place and is one over par. The rest of the team continues to struggle. Jonathan Khan and Philip Bagdade are tied at 58th place and Trent Redfern is in 67th place. Head coach Rick LaRose has raved about Eric Oja all year, saying he will be the future of the program. So far, the freshman has only played well enough to earn 73rd place. The Wildcats are chasing Alabama, who has a strong hold on first place with a four stroke lead over Louisiana State and Stanford. The Crimson Tide is shooting 7-over-par as a team.

Pac-10 Power Rankings By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat

No. 2 Oregon Ducks (7-0, 4-0 Pac-10)

If Oregon wanted to prove it deserved the No. 1 ranking in the AP and Coaches polls and the national media attention, it needed to make a statement against UCLA. I think the Ducks’ 60-13 victory speaks for itself. Time to see if Oregon can break the AP No. 1 curse and keep its record intact when it visits the Coliseum this weekend.

No. 15 Arizona Wildcats (6-1, 3-1)

It wasn’t that Matt Scott’s performance wasn’t appreciated, it just wasn’t expected. Scott and the rest of the Wildcats turned in their most complete game of the season at a critical tipping point in the season. It isn’t clear when starter Nick Foles will return, but with UCLA next weekend and Scott playing as well as he could, don’t be surprised if Foles comes in only if something seriously goes wrong in Pasadena.

No. 13 Stanford Cardinal (6-1, 3-1)

The Washington State Cougars gave the Cardinal a scare this weekend, nearly completing a fourth quarter comeback with 21 points scored in the fourth quarter on Saturday. Luckily, Stanford’s quarterback notched three touchdowns and kept the game just out of reach for the Cougars, leading the Cardinal to its best start in 40 years. The Cardinal goes to Washington this week, but with Huskies quarterback Jake Locker hurt, this matchup may go easily in favor of Stanford.

Southern California Trojans (5-2, 2-2)

This weekend hosting Oregon might as well be the biggest game the Trojans will play this season. College GameDay is stopping by, and the atmosphere will be as close as USC will get to a bowl game all year. Don’t think it will be easy for the Trojans to play the AP No. 1 spoiler. Oregon has shown no signs of weakness so far, but you can bet that Lane Kiffin would like nothing more than to dethrone another No. 1 for the fourth week in a row. Would it be as good as a bowl game? No, but it would certainly be a band-aid for the skid marks when Oregon ran over USC to take control of the conference last season.

California Golden Bears (4-3, 2-2)

Cal may be the most fickle team in the conference, playing relentless at home, but struggling away from Berkeley. If the Golden Bears can successfully get a win in Corvallis, Ore., they might round out the top half of the conference in 2010. Not to mention a win would put them on the fast track to make a bowl game for the eighth straight year.

FOOTBALL

continued from page 7

Oregon State Beavers (3-3, 2-1)

Oregon State is still trying to prove that it belongs among the top of the Pac-10, and a win against Cal this weekend could be the perfect way to prove that. Although it will depend on which Bears team shows up, the Beavers still need to keep the conference losses down before it can go into cruise control. If they set their sights on the “easy� games against UCLA and Washington State after Cal, the Bears might finally get that elusive road conference win.

Washington Huskies (3-4, 2-2)

Jake Locker being hurt is a serious problem for the Huskies. He reportedly said that he was about 90 percent against Arizona last weekend, but on the field, his efficiency looked much lower than that. Locker, normally a threat to go deep and run the ball, had -23 rushing yards against a stingy Arizona defense. And it doesn’t get easier for Locker or the Huskies, After they host Stanford this week, they play at Oregon, possibly the roughest back-to-back opponents in the Pac-10.

Arizona State Sun Devils (3-4, 1-3)

Any hope ASU had in the beginning of the season of being a surprise team may have just gone out the window. With quarterback Steven Threet out with a concussion, the Sun Devils may be the first team to fall to a Washington State team that is inching closer and closer to its first conference win since 2008.

UCLA Bruins (3-4, 1-3)

The Bruins are in a very similar situation with ASU. With quarterback Kevin Prince done for the year, UCLA’s offensive chances look even bleaker, if that’s possible. The Bruins are ninth in the conference in scoring, and with Arizona leading the Pac-10 in total defense, it may be another disappointing loss for Bruins fans even if the Wildcats don’t let Foles on the field.

Washington State Cougars (1-7, 0-5)

It’s looking like Washington State will finally get a conference win in 2010. No, don’t laugh, it’s true. WSU is consistently hanging around with teams in the fourth quarter, and eventually, it will play spoiler. The fight the Cougars put up against Stanford and Arizona in the last two weeks would push them ahead of both ASU and UCLA if only they could pull off a conference win.

Right guard Vaughn Dotsy struggling with back injury

Xavier Kelley tallied 15 tackles against BYU in the 2008 Las Vegas Bowl. “Paul (Vassallo’s) played that way all year. He’s been a guy that goes sideline to sideline. He’s very instinctive and he’s very coachable,� Stoops said. “He’s just a very aggressive player. He’s a fun guy to be out there. He enjoys what he does. He sees things very well. He helps us see things. He’s a good leader and he’s very sharp.� Vassallo leads the team in tackles on the season with 54, and Kish admitted that the junior transfer from Sierra College has surprised him a bit this season. Vassallo played a lot of defensive end at Sierra College, causing Kish to question his level of effectiveness as a linebacker. “He’s just a sideline to sideline guy that’s really had better instincts at playing linebacker than I gave him credit for when I recruited him,� Kish said. “He’s been remarkable at the second level so far.�

Professionals dedicated to womens healthcare

Arizona’s defense as a whole leads the Pac-10 in scoring defense, rush defense and total defense, while ranking second in pass defense. The Wildcats rank seventh nationally in total defense and 10th in scoring defense. Arizona lost seven starters heading into the season, but never let that affect the defensive unit. “We just didn’t embrace the fact that they didn’t have experience. We didn’t let that enter into their psyche,� Kish said. “For us, these were the best 11 guys that we were going to put on the field and now lets go play like that.�

Injury update

While Foles is clearly Arizona’s biggest injury, the Wildcats have some other players banged up. Starting defensive tackle Justin Washington missed last week’s game with a knee injury and remains questionable heading into this week of practice. The most severe injury, however, belongs to right guard Vaughn Dotsy, who may miss the entire season as he recovers from the same back surgery that sidelined former Arizona tight end Rob Gronkowski for the 2009 season. “He could be a medical (redshirt), could be a permanent medical (redshirt),� Stoops said of Dotsy. “I don’t know. We

Freshs

Choice When you need us the most

don’t know what his status is right now, it all depends on how his back responds. We did the surgery a year ago so we’ll see what kind of options we have.� The junior, who started in nine games last season, has only started two games in 2010 and may very well be done for the season, or even longer. “We’re concerned,� said Stoops.

Greg Byrne appearance

Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne stopped by Monday and shared how people have reacted to the new Pac-12 divisional alignment. The Wildcats are grouped in the South division with Southern California, UCLA, ASU and newcomers Colorado and Utah. “You know, surprisingly, I thought there would be mixed reaction,� Byrne said. “When you go through a process like this you have to have give and take, and I had a few (negative) emails but almost all of them are fired up about it and think it’s great moving forward. We’re really pleased about it from a structure standpoint, we’re really pleased from a long-term outlook for our league.� Byrne said that he and Stoops will meet soon to talk about non-conference scheduling moving forward.

Depth, unpredictability define Pac-10 By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat The Pacific 10 Conference is the nation’s deepest conference when it comes to volleyball. Need some proof? Arizona is ranked No. 23 in the nation but is ahead of only two teams in the conference standings. The Wildcats are under .500 in the conference, sitting at 4-5 at the halfway point. Arizona is the only team in the AVCA Coaches’ Poll Top 25 with a losing conference record. The Pac-10 has seven teams in the top 25 of the AVCA poll. Only one other conference has more than three teams in the poll — the Big Ten Conference, with five. Still not convinced? ASU, which opened the Pac-10 season 0-4, knocked off No. 11 UCLA and No. 7 Southern California just a little over a week ago. The conference is deep. It’s unpredictable. It’s the best. “It wears on you,” said Arizona head coach Dave Rubio. Take a look at the ASU team that just beat two of the top teams in the conference. Two weeks prior, the Sun Devils were embarrassed by Arizona in a three-set sweep. ASU followed up that miserable four-game losing streak with a fourgame winning streak. So Arizona should have beaten

UCLA and USC, right? The team that UA dominated turned around and sent both southern California schools packing in four sets. Wrong. USC and UCLA both marched into McKale Center and both left with a win. Not even Nostradamus would have been able to guess what is going to happen in this conference. Stanford was undefeated and the nation’s No. 1 ranked team heading into Pac-10 play. What did the utter domination of non-conference teams get the Cardinal? After they had been unbeaten over a month and a half, the Cardinal lost two matches in thirteen days. Now California is looking down at the rest of the conference from atop the rankings with just one loss, but they’ll fall from the perch too. The conference is just too good. “It’s tiring,” said senior setter Paige Weber. “Nobody in our league folds easy.” Even Washington State, which hasn’t won a conference game in 2010, isn’t an easy team to conquer. “It’s a hard place to play,” Rubio said. “They’ve got some legit players.” That might be the best way to sum up the Pac-10 — everyone has legit players.

Rodney Haas/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Paige Weber, left, and Cursty Jackson, right, have been key contributors to the Wildcats this season. Despite being 3-4 in the Pacific 10 Conference, Arizona is ranked No. 23 in the nation.

Q

11

Why does alcohol make you blackout yet still look like you’re functioning?

A. people confuse it with passing out. They are two different Great question! First let’s define blacking out, as some

things. A blackout can occur when someone engages in heavy drinking, usually in a short period of time, and then has an amnesia-like period until their BAC (blood alcohol concentration) decreases. Blackouts are generally divided into two categories. En bloc blackouts are stretches of time for which the person has no memory whatsoever. Fragmentary blackouts are episodes for which the drinker’s memory is spotty, with bits of memory providing some insight into the drinking episode. This can be a scary, embarrassing thing for a drinker to realize the next day, wondering what happened. How did I get home and what’s this giant bruise on my leg? What happens in your brain is that memory receptors get blocked with excessive alcohol intake. You’re not forgetting what happened; you’re actually not forming the memory. And you don’t realize it until you sober up, usually the next morning. Your friends don’t realize you’re blacked out either because you appear to be intoxicated but functioning, in that you still remember your friend’s names and where you live, etc. It’s just that you aren’t in control of what you are doing or able to give consent to things you wouldn’t do if sober. You just won’t know what you did during this period of excessive BAC. High tolerance can be a factor here also, leading your friends to believe you’re ok. What can you do to avoid blackouts? The good news is that they are preventable by reducing the amount of alcohol you consume, spacing your drinks further apart, drinking them more slowly, and eating before going out. You can find more information on blackouts at www.niaaa.nih.gov/publications and by searching for “What Happened? Alcohol, Memory Blackouts, and the Brain” by Aaron M. White.

83% of UA students did not have memory loss as a result of drinking in the past 30 days. (2010 Health & Wellness Survey, n=2,931)

Balance finally arrived against Huskies By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT A balanced offensive attack has been an ideal that head coach Mike Stoops and his team have strived to achieve all season. Due to inconsistencies with the offensive line along with the Nick Foles-led aerial attack, that balance never came to fruition — until Saturday against Washington. “To see that type of balance, I thought was critical for our success long-term throughout the year,” Stoops said Monday.

“To start to get some more balance in the run game takes some pressure off our offensive line and it just takes pressure off the quarterback as well.” The Wildcats ran for more yards against the Huskies than they had all season, racking up 234 on the ground thanks to Keola Antolin (114), Matt Scott (65) and Nic Grigsby (50). Arizona also poured in four rushing touchdowns, while Scott threw for one less yard (233) than the Wildcats gained on the ground — the first time all season that Arizona ran for

more yards than they threw for. The most impressive stat was the passto-run ratio of 22 to 43. Through six games Arizona threw the ball 38 times per game — tops in the conference — while running it 30 times a game. The insertion of a running quarterback along with Washington’s rush defense that ranks ninth in the Pac-10 definitely contributed to the success, but it was the offensive line that finally opened up the holes. “We challenged our offensive line to be a more physical unit, to protect the quarterback

better,” Stoops said after the game. “We were hard on those guys this week and they responded in a very positive way.” Senior tackle Adam Grant said the offensive line had their “asses ripped,” after allowing six sacks against Washington State a week prior. But the O-line responded in a big way, leaving Stoops confident in Arizona’s prospects heading forward. “If we can get that type of offensive line play I think that bodes well for our success offensively. That’s when we’re playing our best,” Stoops said Monday. “Hopefully that’s to come and maybe we’re hitting our stride now.” The holes were bigger and the trio of Antolin, Scott and Grigsby took advantage, combining for Arizona’s second game with over 200 yards on the ground. The offensive line has been the Wildcats’ biggest strength over the past few seasons, but due to injuries and inconsistency they simply couldn’t get it together this season. But with Scott under center and a more concerted effort to run, the offensive line stepped up to that challenge and paved the way. “We just felt that we weren’t playing up to our potential,” said center Colin Baxter. “Playing like we did tonight is how we expect to play every week, it doesn’t matter the opponent.” Not only did the O-line create running lanes, they also gave a quarterback making his first start in 16 games enough time to sit back in the pocket and make his reads. Scott has struggled going through all of his progression in the past, but thanks to his maturity and the work of the offensive line he was able to stand in and prove his passing prowess. “I was feeling real good. I had time to go through every one of my reads actually while the O-line was on their blocks,” Scott said. “They did a great job.” If and when Foles gets back under center Arizona will once again become a pass-happy squad. The Wildcats still rank first in the conference in pass offense with 298 yards per game, while ranking eighth in rush offense with only 136.9 yards per game. But while Scott is under center and the offensive line is clicking, Arizona is a balanced team that has to be accounted for through the air and on the ground. “That’s encouraging to see,” Stoops said. “That makes us a much more diversified team.”
