UA given $3 million to research vet degree




Despite leading by 14 points with nine minutes left in the game, the Wildcats faltered in overtime, falling to No. 17 Stanford by a score of 54-48 at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, Calif.

A proposal from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences could enable aspiring veterinarians to get their degree right here on campus. Currently, the UA’s veterinary science program allows students to spend four years taking prerequisite courses toward the degree. At the end of the program, students must transfer to another institution to finish the degree. With the proposed program, students would be able to finish the degree here. During the Arizona Board of Regents meeting, the board approved a $3 million state budget request to study the possibility of creating a veterinary medical education program. The request was part of the operating budget request for the 2014 fiscal year. In addition, the animal sciences department and department of veterinary science and microbiology voted in favor of creating an Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences school, which would host the proposed program. The new program would serve more than 100

Reduced on-street parking along the streetcar route has led ParkWise, Tucson’s parking management and enforcement program, to consider raising parking rates in downtown to match the cost of parking in a garage. The mayor and council asked ParkWise to make a recommendation to consider raising parking meter rates in order to push people to use parking garages in the downtown area, with the idea that downtown employees and others who use on-street parking for long periods of time would start using garage parking. Then more on-street parking would available for customers who only need to use a parking meter for a short period of time. “That way customers can find parking when and where they need it.” said Donovan Durband, ParkWise program administrator. Tucson’s meter parking is cheaper than comparable cities in the southwest, Durband said. The recommendation also suggests that people pay for parking after 5 p.m. and on Saturdays based on demand. “I at least expect to be able to park for free on nights and weekends,” said Brittany Schultz, a

Student’s trip to India sparks idea for app YARA ASKAR Arizona Daily Wildcat

While many students will be focusing on midterms in the coming weeks, three UA students will be focusing their attention on releasing a new mobile application, SociaLink, which aims to create easier and faster ways to connect with people on social networks. While attending the Eller Global Cohort in

India, Michael Jacobs, a business management junior and SocialLink’s chief executive officer, came up with the idea of creating an app that focuses on revolutionizing the way people use social media sites to connect with each other. SociaLink will allow people to instantly find each other on social media sites without having worry about spelling names correctly. On his jungle hike in India, Jacobs started thinking about how difficult it was for him to get

the correct name spelling of all the people he was meeting with. “I meet with a lot of different people and the main thing that I noticed is that I had trouble pronouncing their name and spelling it,” Jacobs said. “At that point, it got difficult to go on Facebook or on LinkedIn to find them or spell their name.” The app allows users to instantaneously connect with one another through the simple

use of a button. Once users download the app, they can pick which media site they want to add friends on. The app currently supports Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Users will have the option to select from the four and send an automatic request via Bluetooth to the other party line. The app will automatically send

the request to the indicated sites. “Seeing that we couldn’t spell people’s name or figure them out, we needed a one simple process, and make social networking connecting that much simpler,” Jacobs said. The social aspect of the app product allows the product to be useful to anyone with a social media account, Jacobs said. Jacobs immediately began interviewing potential development companies in India that could help him get the app running. After interviewing several development companies, he hired a development team based in Bangalore, India, that will write the codes and get the app functioning. Along with his team in India, Jacobs brought on two UA students to help with the development of the app. Hector Rosales, a junior studying economics, French and finance and SocialLink’s chief financial officer, and David Orr, a business management senior and the app’s chief marketing officer, took part in the final developmental stages. Although the idea was kept a secret in the beginning, Orr said, they have slowly been releasing information about what the app does. “Our main goal right now is to build our user-base and spread our app extremely quickly,” Rosales said. Jacobs hopes to expand their user-base within a three to six month period of launching the app, to allow for other network companies to see what the app has to offer with today’s technology, he said. “I knew we were going to build a strong team, but I didn’t know exactly who or how it was going to happen, but it did and it is going in the positive direction,” Jacobs said. “We don’t know what the outcome is going to be, but we will keep going. We are not stopping until this thing becomes huge.” The most difficult part for Jacobs and his team has been taking the first step and beginning the process. Once the process starts, everything just falls into place, he said. “We have invested our skills and time into it and that’s what really matter,” Orr said. During the week, the app will be tested for functionality, and is anticipated to be launched in early November.

students, and aim to stop Arizona residents from transferring to outof state universities to receive an education in veterinary sciences, said Shane Burgess, vice provost and dean of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Rural areas like Arizona have seen a shortage in veterinarians, Burgess said. Arizona students who wish to pursue a career in veterinary science have been forced to leave the state, and they tend to stay there even after completing their degree, he added. Though the UA doesn’t have a veterinary program, it has supported students in receiving a veterinary education out of state through the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education’s Professional Student Exchange program, said Noble Jackson, an associate professor in the department of veterinary science and microbiology.

psychology freshman. A two-page recommendation will be presented to the mayor and council for discussion in the beginning of November, according to Steve Kozachik, the city’s Ward 6 council member. Meter rates will increase from 50 cents to 1 dollar, effective after streetcar construction is done, if the proposal is approved. “I think people might get annoyed and maybe slowly stop parking here, but I don’t think it’ll make a big difference,” Schultz said. Streetcar stops will make for less on-street parking after

in any of the Arizona university systems comes with two costs: “One is that our students are leaving and spending money in other states that would have been spent here in the state of Arizona,” Jackson said, “and the second loss is the school’s expenses in terms of supporting students to study out of state.” The state of Arizona is paying over $1 million in student support fees every academic year, he added. While Arizona has a substantial agricultural industry, the number of Arizona veterinarians remains low due to the number of veterinary science students who have to leave the state to get their degree, Beth Engelschall, a veterinary science junior, said. “There aren’t a large amount of vets coming back,” Engelschall said. “I think if we had a veterinary school here it would help increase our economy and the number of veterinarians that stay here.” In addition to the university being at the center of the state’s agricultural industry, it’s also already equipped

with a veterinary laboratory and research facilities, Burgess said. “I think this is a big plus for our state of Arizona and for our students who would be at a distinct advantage to go to veterinary school,” Jackson said. Deb Amiga, a practice manager at Valley Animal Hospital on 22nd Street, said that some of the veterinarians who work at the hospital received their prerequisites at the UA but left the state to get their degree. “This will be exciting, not just for the community, but on a national level,” Amiga said. “I think this would help our economy.” Chelsea Linehan, a veterinary science junior, said she also thought that this program would be beneficial to the school and state in terms of increasing enrollment rates. “We would have a large increase in students for undergrad and for the doctorate program,” Linehan said. “We would be having people from out of state coming into our program, which would help our state and economy.”

construction. On Congress Street and Broadway Boulevard, the stops will be on the side of the road, taking up some of what used to be parallel parking. On Fourth Avenue, University Boulevard and Second Street, all two-way streets, the streetcar will stop at an island in the middle of the street, which will narrow the travel lanes. Parking on University Boulevard between Tyndall Avenue and Park Avenue, which was once back-in parking, has already been changed to parallel parking. Kozachik said many merchants support the proposal and believe that raising rates will help push people to use the garages. “He [Durband] has my full support,” Kozachik said. “I’m

really interested in the kind of suggestions he brings forward.” Talks about installing meters on Fourth Avenue have been in progress for a long time as well, according to Craig Wilson, owner of Creative Ventures. Although it’s not in the parking rates recommendation, Durband said parking meters on Fourth Avenue are going to happen. “It might not be such a bad thing in that it turns over the traffic a little bit,” Wilson said. Durband said he doesn’t think higher rates will keep people from visiting downtown because there won’t be a significant change. “We’re not talking huge amounts of money,” Durband said. “I don’t think 50 cents is going to be a deterrent.”

Obama, Romney campaigns trade accusations of lies following debate MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

WASHINGTON – The campaigns of President Obama and Mitt Romney traded sharp accusations of lies and distortions Sunday as the race headed into its final month roiled by last week’s debate. The Romney camp released a new TV ad accusing Obama of “not telling the truth about Mitt Romney’s tax plan.” It charged Obama with distorting the plan by asserting on the campaign trail and during Wednesday’s first presidential debate that the Republican candidate would raise taxes on middle-class Americans as part of a $5-trillion tax cut that mostly would benefit the wealthy. Romney supporters repeated the charge on the Sunday talk shows. “We know it’s not true what they’re saying about his tax plan,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

said on “Fox News Sunday.” But Obama aides and supporters pressed their assertions that Romney’s tax plan doesn’t add up and that he misled voters during the debate. “It was a masterful theatrical performance. It was fundamentally dishonest for the American people,” Robert Gibbs, an adviser to Obama’s campaign, said on ABC’s “This Week.” “This was what he used to do in private business,” Obama adviser David Axelrod said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “You have the ‘closer’ at Bain Capital and the basic theory is say whatever you need to get the deal and that’s what he did that night.” He said Romney was “dishonest in his answers” and delivered “a Gantry-esque performance,” a reference to the fictional, dishonest evangelist Elmer Gantry. The Romney campaign sought to build on the momentum they believe they gained from

the former Massachusetts governor’s strong performance in the first of three presidential debates. Democrats said Obama was not happy with his performance and would improve in the upcoming debates. “I think the president understood that he hadn’t performed up to his own expectations pretty quickly after he got off the stage that night,” Gibbs said. Axelrod said Obama “did plenty of homework” before the debate, but wasn’t ready for Romney’s distortions of his own positions. “I think he was a little taken aback at the brazenness with which Gov. Romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he’s run, walked away from his record and MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE that’s something we’re going to have to make an adjustment for in these subsequent PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA walks across the South Lawn of the White House toward Marine One. debates,” Axelrod said.

Chicago-area man arrested in alleged bomb plot MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

CHICAGO — By the time Gregory Weiler II was in his late teens, his family said, the Elk Grove Village, Ill., native was well down a path toward destruction. Both his mother and father had committed suicide before he was 16, and Weiler had also tried to kill himself in the eighth grade. He had been hospitalized for mental illness at least six times. In between, he had become addicted to heroin and alcohol. When Weiler, 23, left several years ago to join a religious group in Missouri, his family knew they’d eventually hear that he had again gotten

into trouble. It happened last week, when Weiler was arrested in Miami, Okla. for allegedly gathering materials to make 50 Molotov cocktails, with plans to bomb nearly that many local churches. His family in Elk Grove Village expressed relief that Weiler had been caught, certain that he would have followed through with what an Oklahoma court affidavit described as a deadly terrorist plot. “It’s a blessing in disguise that they were able to get there,” said Johnny Meyers, Weiler’s cousin. “He has to be held accountable. It’s a blessing, he can’t hurt anyone now.” According to court documents, Weiler was

arrested after police found the bomb-making equipment in a garbage can at a motel. He has been charged with violating Oklahoma’s antiterrorism laws, a legacy of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people. Entering Weiler’s motel room, police found dozens of empty beer bottles fashioned as Molotov cocktails, along with a torn-up page that had hand-written instructions for making the bombs. The document had a hand-drawn map of 48 local churches, and plans to make more bombs, according to the affidavit. The churches were “grouped and circled with a key detailing how many nights and how many people,” would potentially be affected,

according to the affidavit. Officials said Weiler had plans to videotape the explosions. A handwritten journal discovered in his motel room laid out plans to destroy churches across the U.S. “a tiny bit at a time — setting foundation for the years to follow,” the affidavit said. Miami Police Chief George Haralson said Weiler checked into the motel on Sept. 20 using an Illinois driver’s license with an address in Washington, Ill., just east of Peoria. Haralson said police have not found any indication of a partner in the plot. “To be able to fire bomb 48 churches in a week, that’s an awful lot of effort,” Haralson said. “But we’re confident that he was acting alone.”

Editorial Pass/Fail The Arizona Daily Wildcat puts the issues to the test. Do they make the grade?

We look forward to our free parking spaces

Congratulations to Morgan Abraham, who was announced as the winner in ASUA’s special senatorial election at the end of last week. We spend a lot of time dissecting the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, questioning its effectiveness and the amount of money it pours into concerts. The platform that Abraham ran on didn’t escape our notice either. Free parking at the Student Recreation Center wasn’t really at the top of (or anywhere on) our list of concerns facing UA students and we’re still not sure moving Spring Fling back to campus is a feasible option considering its size and attendance. But we are willing to admit that being a student leader — one truly representative of the more than 30,000 undergraduates on campus — requires ambition and motivation. For now, Abraham and ASUA get an incomplete. We’ll keep watching to see what happens next.


Finger-pointing in ASA a slow-motion implosion

Speaking of student leadership, how about that Arizona Students’ Association? After the resignation of five ASA directors — all from ASU — and an investigative report by the Goldwater Institute, current and former members of ASA appear to be caught up in a lot of finger-pointing. UA student leaders, namely ASUA President Katy Murray, have repeatedly stood by the nonprofit organization, despite the allegations leveled against it. ASA has been accused of violating its bylaws and of improper spending. Former ASA members from ASU have said they’ve been threatened with legal action. With the elections fast approaching, now is hardly the time for an organization dedicated to advocating for higher education to implode. We’re pretty sure that everyone will just look for somewhere else to dump the blame, but even so, ASA gets a fail. An organization that claims to represent students to the state Legislature can’t afford to engage in a battle of he said, she said.


Limiting access creates hurdles for journalists

Ithaca College issued a new media policy last month that routes all student journalists’ requests for interviews with administrators through the college’s media relations office. Now, instead of going directly to the source, Ithaca’s students will have to ask media relations to facilitate an interview. According to Dave Maley, associate director of media relations, in an interview with the school’s student newspaper, the new requirements were not written to limit media access. Instead, Maley says, the policy will better ensure the sources are the most appropriate to the article and the interviews will be better facilitated. This last claim cements a fail for Ithaca College’s new policy. Though we do not abide by any particular policy regarding how to submit interview requests, Wildcat staff members have also sometimes had to jump through bureaucratic hoops to get to administrators. While such a policy is by no means a limitation on free speech, it does limit access. The constant dependence on a middle man only slows down the delivery of information.

Your views In response to “Politically charged video raises doubts about Arizona Students’ Association” (by Jason Krell, Oct. 2) It’s funny that people get up in arms over Chik-Fil-A, yet the ASA is allowed to be as partisan as it wants. I’m not a Democrat, but I’ll still get upset when Democrats are inaccurately portrayed or when a group that claims to be non-partisan clearly favors even my own political leanings. The video is ambiguous, but you have to be pretty desensitized to not notice its subtle slant. The hilarious part though is there is not current candidate between the two parties that is anti-war, anti-bailout, and pro-marijuana....So the video just illustrates the lack of variety in the choices we have. — Steven Sleight

their less determined competitors. Grittier undergraduate students tended to have higher GPAs than their peers. Students who have grit, Duckworth said in the Chronicle’s article, “are not always as smart as less gritty individuals, but they actually perform beautifully in highly challenging situations where dropout is likely.” IQ may not be enough to measure likelihood of high achievement, Duckworth’s research argues. Grit may not be tied to intelligence at all — just look at students with high GPAs but little direction. Duckworth warned against assuming that noncognitive measures outweigh cognitive factors. “It’s not necessarily that IQ doesn’t matter,” she said, “but I think the promising message for students is that we can all work harder, or at least most of us can.” There isn’t any way to know if including grit in the college admissions process would change retention and graduation rates, but it does offer more insight into college applicants. When it comes down to the wire, a person has to be more than a resume or an SAT score. — Kristina Bui is the editor-in-chief for the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

I agree that the student to teacher ratio could and should be improved upon. However, I think reaching 40,000 students is actually something to be proud about. We’re a public university, and despite rising tuition costs, our goal is to make college accessible & affordable. On one hand, it’s nice to have lower rates of admission to make us seem prestigious and that we only allow the best of the best... but at the end of the day, that’s not our goal. We’re not Harvard. Public institutions can and should remain a place that does education a large amount of people. It kind of reminds me of Noam Chomsky’s lecture this spring entitled “An Education for Whom & for What?” in which he addresses only the privileged subsets of Americans receiving education historically. Public education should strive to be a place that counteracts that, and for that reason I believe having a larger enrollment is a good thing. — Kemi

Police Beat YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat

Catching some Z’s

A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center at about 4:36 a.m. on Oct. 1 in response to a report of a suspicious person. A library employee reported that a non-UA student was sleeping on the benches near the vending machines in the ILC courtyard, even after he had been asked to leave. When the officer arrived, he saw the man sleeping on the benches. The man said he didn’t have any identification, but then told the officer his name and claimed he was from Florida. The officer did a records check and found that that name didn’t exist in the Florida motor vehicle database. The dispatcher then told the officer she had information on a man with a matching date of birth from Arizona. When the officer asked the man if that was him, he said it might be. He said that he was a student but his classes didn’t start until Oct. 18. The man told the officer that he didn’t know where he lived, but he was staying with someone because he had just moved here from Florida. A second officer then arrived at the scene with an email from the library employee about the man. The email said that after the man was asked to leave, he tried to re-enter the ILC by following a group of students in at about 3:10 a.m. The library staff caught him and asked him to leave once again. The officer then attempted to read the man his Miranda Rights, but as soon as he began, the man jumped over an adjacent bench and started running toward the south stairwell of the ILC. Both officers chased him up the stairwell while telling him to stop. The man stopped about halfway up the stairs and turned around. He was ordered to get down on his stomach and was handcuffed. The man was arrested on charges of second degree criminal trespassing. While conducting their search, the officers found a Washington driver’s license with a picture of the man. The officer asked him why he lied about his identity and he said, “I thought I had a warrant.” He had no outstanding warrants at that time. The officer later learned that the man had been in the Student Recreation Center for a few hours and then went to the UA Main Library at midnight. The man must have entered the ILC behind a group of students, as he wouldn’t have been able to get in without a CatCard.

Music building mischief

A UAPD officer went to the Music building 3:39 p.m. on Oct. 1 in response to a report of theft. At the scene, the officer spoke with the woman who called in the report. She said that two burgundy, leather benches about 6 feet long were stolen from the lobby the night before. The woman said that they were seven to eight years old and that each bench would cost about $200 to replace. She told the officer that she first heard one of the benches was gone when she noticed music students posting about the incident on Facebook. They said that the first bench was stolen at 9:48 p.m. and the second was stolen at 11:59 p.m. The woman sent out emails to the music department asking if any student knew the whereabouts of the two benches. There are no suspects at this time.

Speed demon

A UAPD officer was in the area of Speedway Boulevard and Olsen Avenue at 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 1 when he noticed a BMW in the middle lane traveling at 64 mph, well above the speed limit. Once the officer caught up to the vehicle it switched from the middle lane to the first lane and then attempted to get into the southbound turn lane. The officer activated his emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop just west of the intersection of Speedway Boulevard and Campbell Avenue. The officer told the driver that he was being arrested fon charges of criminal speeding. The driver said that he was sick and late for class, and tried to talk his way out of getting arrested, but the officer told him that driving 29 mph over the speed limit is unacceptable. The man refused to sign his citation so the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle so he could take him to jail. The officer informed the driver that if he didn’t show up for his assigned court date, a warrant would be issued for his arrest. The man then cooperated with the officer and was then cited and released at the scene.

Un-appeeling situation

A UAPD officer near Sixth Street and Highland Avenue observed a UA student speeding at about 1:34 a.m. on Oct. 1. The student was driving a black Chevrolet sedan. The officer watched the driver peel out of the area of Seventh Street and Highland Avenue at about 1:28 a.m. When the driver stopped at a red light at the intersection of Sixth Street and Highland Avenue, the officer initiated a traffic stop. The driver identified himself with a California driver’s license and said the vehicle he was driving was not his. He also said that the vehicle was having a problem shifting and he had been trying to fix it. He was cited and released for exhibition of speed.

UA drops the ball Matt Scott’s career day negated in a 54-48 overtime loss to Stanford

Baltimore 9, Kansas City 3

Arizona V-ball falls to ranked teams in LA


Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Storyline of the game: Arizona’s porous defense

Coming into the season, the Wildcats were projected to have a prolific offense and a below-average defense, similar to last season. That was certainly the case in Saturday’s 54-28 overtime loss to Stanford. The defense hasn’t been spectacular this season, giving up an average of 451 yards coming into the game against Stanford. But even in the 49-0 rout to Oregon, the defense still gave a valiant effort, even if the stats don’t reflect it. Saturday was a completely different story. Arizona allowed a below-average Cardinal offense to march effortlessly up and down the field to the tune of 617 yards and 54 points. The absence of the injured Jared Tevis was obvious, as Arizona couldn’t contain either quarterback Josh Nunes — 21-for34 for 360 yards, two touchdown passes and three rushing touchdowns — or running back Stepfan Taylor, who finished with 142 yards on the ground. Arizona’s offense may have sputtered out at the end of the game and especially in overtime, but the defense is what ended up ruining the Wildcats’ bid for an upset. The poor performance tumbled Arizona down to 111th in the nation in total defense, as the unit is now allowing an average of 486 yards per game. The sting of this defeat won’t fade anytime soon. The fact that it sinks Arizona to 0-3 in the Pac-12 and drops its record to 2-14 in its past 16 conference games makes it that much worse.

he was satisfied with. “This time last year our record was very similar, the only difference was the win against UCLA last year,” Rubio said. “But these two teams are very, very different. The progress that needs to take place is obvious.” Last year, Arizona took both conference wins from UCLA. This year the task proved more difficult. The Wildcats’ starting lineup has two freshmen, three sophomores and three juniors. By comparison, UCLA is led by one of the most experienced players in the conference, not to mention the Bruins are reigning national champions. The Bruins were led by senior outside hitter Tabi Love and Rachael Kidder and the team held a .333 hitting percentage versus Arizona’s .258. Arizona’s roster still needs time to reach a more consistent level of play. “I think our matches against Stanford and Washington were the most competitive we’ve played this season,” Rubio said. “We get back on the road again next weekend and we’ll have to see how prepared we are by then.”

The Arizona volleyball team’s road trip to Los Angeles didn’t go so well, as the UA lost games against USC and UCLA. Arizona (9-8, 1-5 Pac-12) fell to No. 5 USC (17-25, 1625, 21-25) and No. 6 UCLA (25-16, 25-20, 27-25), both with a score of 3-0. “We have to keep in mind that we just faced two ranked teams,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “There is definitely still a lot of work that needs to be done.”

We have to keep in mind that we just faced two ranked teams. There is definitely still a lot of work that needs to be done.

decision to not go for the win in regulation, and the overtime interception of quarterback Matt Scott. Another potential turning point was the errant pass from Scott to receiver Tyler Slavin on third and long that handed the ball back to Stanford for the eventual game-tying drive. But the The game provided several memorable moment that truly sparked the Cardinal’s moments, for instance Rich Rodriguez’s comeback — or Arizona’s demise — was a fluky play that went completely Stanford’s

way. On third and eight with Stanford trailing by two touchdowns, Nunes dropped back and hit receiver Drew Terrell just past the first down mark. The ball popped out as Terrell was wrapped up and it was called an incompletion on the field.


This weekend was the first time Arizona played a Pac-12 match away. Against USC on Friday, the Wildcats’ offense struggled to get through the block and was held to .140 hitting percentage on the match. Rubio expressed disappointment about the performance and said that Arizona’s effort and will to compete was not at a level

he Arizona football team is a tease, there’s no sugar coating that. And Saturday’s 54-48 overtime loss cemented that idea. A 3-0 start gave rise to delusions of grandeur. Then the Wildcats’ three-game stretch against Oregon, Oregon State and Stanford happened. The Wildcats trailed Pac-12 powerhouse Oregon just 13-0 at halftime in week four, only to falter in the second half and lose 49-0. The 0-for-6 red zone count certainly didn’t help. In week five, Arizona overcame an early 17-0 deficit and led Oregon State by four points with 5:34 remaining, only to allow the Beavers to spend the next 4:25 driving the ball up the field for a game-winning score. Matt Scott’s game-ending interception contributed, as did the 613 yards of total offense the Wildcats surrendered. Finally, on Saturday Arizona led Stanford by 14 points with 9:13 left in the fourth quarter. For the second straight week, an upset seemed within the realm of possibility. Then Stanford drove a combined 139 yards on its next two drives, scoring on two rushing touchdowns from quarterback Josh Nunes and sending the game into overtime. Scott threw an interception on the opening drive of the extra period, and the rest is history. Now the Wildcats sit at 3-3. For a football program in rebuilding mode with head coach Rich Rodriguez, things aren’t as cut and dry as Ricky Bobby’s “if you ain’t first, you’re last” mantra. Arizona wasn’t supposed to beat Stanford, but the Wildcats’ offense played out of its mind and nearly put the UA back into the national

spotlight. Scott completed 45 of 69 passes for 491 yards and three touchdowns. Yes, the supposedly run-oriented Rodriguez threw the ball 69 times. On the season, Scott has thrown for 2,099 yards. As in, Scott has 103 more yards than Geno Smith, West Virginia’s Heisman frontrunner, and 791 more than USC’s Matt Barkley. Sure, he has thrown costly interceptions three weeks in a row. But so what? No one in their right mind expected him to have this kind of season; it’s just a shame this will be the senior’s only year in Rodriguez’s system. Imagine what he could do in year two. Ka’Deem Carey staked his claim as the most underrated running back in the Pac-12, rushing for 132 yards and three touchdowns against the Cardinal to give him 670 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season. Keola Antolin started for the UA at running back in 2011 and parts of 2010, and ran for 12 touchdowns combined. Oh, and sophomore receiver Austin Hill caught 11 balls for 165 yards and two touchdowns against the Cardinal and has the 11th most receiving yards in the nation. The UA offense is for real. It’s prolific, it’s fun to watch and it will keep the UA in every game. For a team that wasn’t even supposed to contend for a bowl berth this season with its shoddy defense — a few decent games clearly didn’t change the fact that the defense is paper thin, in terms of both depth and size — that’s nothing to be ashamed of. The Wildcats kept it close with two ranked opponents, and in two games against supposed impenetrable defenses, Arizona tallied 1,162 total yards and 83

THE ARIZONA SOCCER team struggled against Washington State 3-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Wildcats dropped to 5-6-3 on the season.

The Wildcats falter on a trip to Washington, getting shut out by Washington State and tying Washington in double overtime IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona women’s soccer team had a disappointing weekend as Washington State (9-4-1) shut out the Wildcats on Sunday 3-0 in Pullman, Wash., after the Wildcats tied the Washington Huskies (83-2) 1-1 in double overtime on Friday in Seattle. After being outshot against the Huskies, the Wildcats (5-6-3) looked to turn the tables against the Cougars on Sunday. However, the UA’s quick attacking tactic that led to an early lead on Friday did not follow into Sunday’s match against Washington State. “We didn’t come out or play very well today,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “We gave up an early goal and we had a hard time fighting back. We didn’t have a good performance and it was reflected in the score.” The Cougars struck first, scoring at just under the 10-minute mark. Washington State defender Rachael Doyle scored her second goal of the season on the header off a cross from the right side of the field, giving Washington State the early lead 1-0.

Junior midfielder Ana-Maria Montoya answered back with an on-goal shot attempt, but the Cougars’ goalkeeper Ariana Byrd saved it. With 40 seconds left in the first half, Washington State attacked aggressively, catching Arizona’s defense off guard. After Cougars forward Micaela Castain shot the ball and hit the post, midfielder Zoe Jeffers rebounded the ball and scored her first goal of the season. Washington State had a commanding 2-0 lead over the Wildcats going into the half. Even though two goals escaped junior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman’s hands, she still recorded four saves for the half. The Cougars outshot Arizona in the first half 8-6, marking the seventh time an opponent has outshot the Wildcats in the first half this season. Montoya and junior forward and midfielder Jazmin Ponce led Arizona with two shot attempts, each with a combined shot on goal percentage of 75 percent. Kaufman tied her number of saves in the first half by the ten minute mark of the second half, as Washington State’s aggressive offense play broke down the

Wildcats’ defense. Kaufman registered three saves and one block. “Gabby performed well throughout the weekend,” Oyen said. “She was faced with a lot of one-on-one shots and made great saves.”

We didn’t come out or play very well today. We gave up an early goal and we had a hard time fighting back.

­— Arizona head coach Lisa Oyen

Just under the 57th minute and after five of seven on-goal shot attempts, the Cougars scored a third goal. Washington State forward Brandi Vega scored her fifth goal of the season off another rebounded shot off the post. The Wildcats could not come back from the three goal deficit, marking their third shutout loss for the season. Arizona was outshot by the Cougars 18-11 for the match, with only five shots on goal to Washington State’s 12, marking the sixth time an opponent outshot the Wildcats this season.

Arizona wins twice in fall opener IMAN HAMDAN

Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona softball team opened its fall season with shutout victories on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stiadum against Yavapai College 9-0 and 1-0 Eastern Arizona College. Against Yavapai, the Wildcats’ pitchers combined to pitch a perfect game. “There are two parts to the game that you really have to be solid at, at this level. One is pitching and the other is defense,â€? head coach Mike Candrea said. “Defensively we’ve got some growing to do, which is pitch recognition more than anything.â€? In her Arizona debut, junior transfer Estela PiĂąon took on her former team, limiting Yavapai College to zero hits in a four-inning stint. Arizona scored nine runs off eight hits against Yavapai College, seven of which came in the first inning. In the bottom of the first inning, senior third baseman Brigette Del Ponte put the Wildcats on the scoreboard with a double. The bases were loaded for Arizona as sophomore second baseman Chelsea Goodacre came up to bat. After Yavapai pitcher Katherine Macias hit Goodacre with the ball, the Wildcats came away with another run, giving Arizona a 2-0 lead. Still in the bottom of the first, junior first baseman Kelsey Rodriguez came next up to bat and brought in two additional hitters, extending Arizona’s lead to 4-0. The big play for the Wildcats came from freshman left fielder Mandie Perez in her collegiate debut. Perez hit the ball out of the park, racking up three additional runs in the bottom of the first inning for the


Former Arizona baseball great Terry Francona has been hired as the next manager of the Cleveland Indians. Francona, 53, worked as an analyst for ESPN this past year after being fired by the Boston Red Sox in 2011. Francona won two World Series titles with the Red Sox, including the title in 2004 that broke Boston’s 86-year drought. His overall record as a manager isn’t quite as illustrious — Francona has a .529 winning percentage in his 12 year managerial career and had a losing record when he coached the Philadelphia Phillies


THE WILDCATS started their fall season off nicely, winning their first two games against Yavapai College and Eastern Arizona College on Sunday at Hillenbrand

Wildcats as they led 7-0. “I wasn’t thinking of going for a home run,â€? Perez said. “I went up there trying to get a base hit to get my teammate in. The home run just showed off how hard I have been working and it was really exciting that it was my first collegiate hit.â€? In the fifth inning, junior pitcher Shelby Babcock came in for PiĂąon to pitch the rest of the game. Hits by freshman first baseman Darcy Taylor and freshman second baseman Courtney Rodriguez brought runners home in the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings respectively.

In the second game of the day, it was a defensive showdown with Babcock back in the circle, leading Arizona against Eastern Arizona College. The Wildcats’ perfect game streak ended in the top of the second inning after a line drive made it just over Arizona’s infield into the outfield, putting Eastern Arizona College on base. Finally, in the bottom of the second inning, Arizona’s Kelsey Rodriguez hit the ball deep in the midfield for a double. However, Arizona’s batters could not feed off Rodriguez’s momentum, as the team

went scoreless into the bottom of the second inning. In the top of the third inning, the Wildcats made a lineup change as freshman pitcher Nancy Bowling made her debut. Finally, in the bottom of the fourth inning, with Wildcat runners on second and third, Goodacre stepped up to bat, hitting it deep in the outfield and bringing Del Ponte in for Arizona’s first and only run of the game. According to Candrea, the Wildcats still need to work on pitch recognition, as they struggled with making contact with the ball in the second game.

from 1997-2000. He was fired by the Red Sox in 2011 after going 90-72 and missing the playoffs, but Francona’s resume was impressive enough to make him one of just two candidates interviewed for the job in Cleveland. Francona worked with the Cleveland organization before as an adviser in 2001. The other candidate, Sandy Alomar Jr., was the interim manager for the Indians during the final six games this season after former manager Manny Acta was fired Sept. 27. The Indians went 3-3 under Alomar. Cleveland went 68-94 this year and had the second worst record in the American League. While Francona’s MLB playing

career was average at best, hitting just .274 percent in his 10 year career, his accomplishments as a Wildcat earned him a spot in the College Baseball Hall of Fame. Before leaving for the draft after his junior season, Francona won the Golden Spikes Award for the top collegiate player and led the Wildcats to their third College World Series title in 1980. Francona earned the College World Series MVP after hitting .401 and nine home runs during the playoffs and leading Arizona to the title with a record of seven consecutive hits. MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE The 1980 CWS title was the Wildcats’ last championship until FORMER WILDCAT Terry Francona was hired as the manager of the Indians, who went 68-94 this season. their win in 2012.

Women’s cross country wins Invitational LUKE DAVIS Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona’s No. 2 women’s cross-country team won the Grand Canyon University Invitational on Saturday and the unranked men’s team finished in seventh place. The women earned their third consecutive victory on Saturday by scoring 26 points. Junior Melanie McGrath led the Wildcats in the 5,000-meter race with a first place finish and a time of 18 minutes and 15 seconds. McGrath was also the Wildcats’ top finisher in this year’s George Kyte Classic race in Flagstaff. Arizona sophomores Kate Penney, Molly Callahan, Hanna Peterson and junior Hannah Moen finished second, third, eighth and 12th respectively.

“I’m really happy with Melanie [McGrath] coming back and running a strong race today,� head coach James Li said in a press release. “I’m really happy for Kate [Penney] and her running so well. Going there, we wanted to give everyone a chance to race and we did that. We saw progress with some of the ladies and that’s really good.� Closely following the Wildcats, New Mexico State University claimed second place with 47 points. Cerritos Community College finished in third with 104 points, Arizona State University took fourth place with 104 points and host Grand Canyon University finished in fifth with 116 points. The unranked Arizona men took seventh place with 179 points (24-29-35-44-47). Sophomore Thomas Valente led the team, finishing in 24th place in the 8,000-meter race and posting a time of 25 minutes and 59 seconds.



Freshman Michael Parkes, freshman Christopher Tansey, sophomore Braden Timpe and junior Kevin Jani finished 29th, 35th, 44th and 47th respectively. “The guys need some work,� Li said. “I think some of the young guys didn’t approach the race the best possible way. Like I said, everybody gets a chance and hopefully they will learn from this experience.� New Mexico State University finished in first place in the men’s race with 38 points, Cerritos Community College claimed second place with 57 points, ASU finished in third place with 57 points, Grand Canyon University earned fourth place with 160 points, Northern Arizona University totaled 166 points for fifth place and Arizona Christian University took sixth place with 178 points.


points. The Wildcats need to win three of their next six games for bowl eligibility. Their six upcoming opponents are, in order, Washington, USC, UCLA, Colorado, Utah and Arizona State. Utah and Colorado should be wins, so between USC, UCLA, Washington and Arizona State, there is no reason why the Wildcats can’t finish out the season with what was a previously unexpected bowl berth. — Zack Rosenblatt is the sports editor. He can be reached at sports@wildcat arizona. edu or via Twitter @ZackBlatt


But the replay showed that Terrell clearly gained control of the ball, took two steps and then fumbled it. At the time none of the Wildcats noticed, allowing Terrell to casually pull the ball back into his body. The play was overturned and since no one fought Terrell for possession of the ball, the recovery was given to Stanford. Instead of facing a do-ordie fourth and eight from the Stanford 42 yard-line, the Cardinal received a first down and moved 16 yards up the field. From there it all went downhill — Stanford scored to make it 48-41, and the rest is history.

Stat of the day: 45 completions

Scott has put up impressive numbers so far this season, but on Saturday he took it to a whole new level. Arizona threw early and often and when all was said and done Scott set the school record for passing completions and attempts. Scott went 45-for-69 and added 491 yards to boot. Quarterback Willie Tuitama previously held both records, which he set in a 45-27 loss to No. 6 Cal in 2007. Tuitama went 42-for61 for 309 yards but a good chunk of that came in the second half, with the game already out of reach. Scott’s 491 yards also put him third all-time for single game passing yards and just a yard behind Jason Johnson for second place. Tuitama holds the record with 510 yards passing against Washington in 2007. With the line in disarray because of injuries to center Kyle Quinn and guard Trace Biskin, the Wildcats were forced to rely on quick passes as Stanford penetrated into the backfield. It didn’t look like the offensive system Rodriguez brought with him to Tucson, but Scott and his favorite target Austin Hill — 11 receptions for 165 yards and two scores — made it work. Of course with the fickle nature of football, all of the passing stats went for naught after Scott’s overtime interception sealed Arizona’s third straight defeat.

Could a rape victim ever get over the past and try to have sex?

A. This is an important question! Rape is a traumatic event that impacts the survivor emotionally and physically. Difficulty with sexual intimacy (or in some cases, physical touch in general) is one common reaction to rape. For those who are having this issue or struggling with other symptoms in the aftermath, time alone does not heal. It may be important for you to talk to a therapist who has expertise in working with rape survivors. Trying to ignore what happened may make things feel even worse later on. Exploring the impact rape has had on your sense of self and relationship with others is important. Healing is definitely possible, and rape survivors can enjoy healthy sexual relationships in the future. Sometimes, being able to tell your current sex partner a bit about your past trauma can help. That way you can explain if something is triggering for you, meaning that something in the present sexual

encounter is reminding you of the past and stirring up distressing thoughts, feelings, or images. If that occurs, the best thing you can do is stop the sexual activity until you feel calm and grounded back in the present moment. Communication about what is and is not working is an important part of sex; this is especially true for rape survivors. It helps your healing process if you don’t try to push yourself to continue with sexual activities while feeling distressed or numb. Stopping when you need to, with a partner who supports that right, can be a very empowering experience! Campus Health’s Oasis Program is available to help with counseling, referrals, and resources.

Tristan Prettyman’s pop alchemy ALEX WHELAN Arizona Daily Wildcat


ess than a week after the release of her third album, Cedar + Gold, San Diego musician Tristan Prettyman can finally breathe again. “When I came back to do this record, it felt like I was starting a fresh conversation,” explains Prettyman, “a fresh start with both myself and with making music.” Though Cedar + Gold’s triumphs seem to erase any memory of her absence, it’s her first album since a self-described “four-year hiatus” from music that was fraught with personal struggle. Much has been made of Cedar + Gold’s being inspired by Prettyman’s engagement to and subsequent split from fellow musician Jason Mraz, and in songs like the aptly-titled “I Was Gonna Marry You,” Prettyman does indeed address the difficulties she faced. More impressive, however, is the way in which Prettyman weaves her own personal experiences into more abstract and universal explorations of love through every track on Cedar + Gold. She explains that the album’s themes are based on the concept of alchemy, the fabled practice of turning lead into gold. “Around the time that I started working on Cedar + Gold, I had this friend who was working with an alchemist, and the more he told me about it the more I realized that I was performing a kind of alchemy of my own,” Prettyman said. “I was taking all of these unfortunate emotions and turning them into something good, which were these songs that ultimately got me to put out another album.” What came of her pop song

ON HER LATEST RECORD, Cedar + Gold, out now on EMI Music, Tristan Prettyman spins ballads and uplifting pop tunes that showcase her emotional journey over the past four years.

alchemy is remarkable — a 12-song record that is often gut-wrenching in its expressions of heartbreak. Songs like “Second Chance,” with its refrain of “I don’t feel anything anymore” can be difficult to listen to, it’s important to understand Prettyman’s fundamental belief in keeping one’s head up.

“I do have a sense of hope, a belief that things are happening for a reason,” she said. The songs certainly reflect this, and it’s a testament to Prettyman’s ability and maturity that an album derived from such pain still manages to leave listeners with the impression that things just might work out.

This maturity can be felt all throughout the album, from hiphop cool songs like “Bad Drug” to the dynamic pairing of album opus “Deepest Ocean Blue” with the unabashedly goofy “The Rebound.” As Prettyman explains, “It was important to me to take all these different sides of myself and put them

on the album. You know, nothing is ever permanent. One hour I’m crying about what happened and the next I’m laughing with my friends. All of that is on the album.” With Cedar + Gold, Prettyman proves that sometimes the best medicine is an acoustic guitar and a melody to sing along to.

Ernst Fenzl based his “Silvana” series on the patterns of natural tree bark. The use of nature in the op-art genre developed over time. The artists play with visuals and imitate nature in a surprising form. Some vases characterize sea-pounded boulders, crystalline rock formations and even shell and tide pool-like structures. Thanks to Gipe’s collection and work in finding the missing pieces of this elegant time in German ceramics, there is now a larger amount of information on each individual artist and the op-art style in general. While the UAMA at times seems hectic in its variance and multitude of exhibits, Gipe’s collection gives viewers a gentle nook to escape into, and the satisfaction that comes from viewing op-art ceramics.

Eureka California gets dynamic on ‘Big Cats Can Swim’ ALEX WHELAN Arizona Daily Wildcat


ureka California will make you want to start a band. It’s tough to think of a greater compliment for a DIY/ garage rock band than that, but this album has earned it. Big Cats Can Swim has 11 wholly distinct songs, each of which showcases a different strength in Jake Ward’s seemingly bottomless bag of songwriting tricks, yet they also work incredibly well together. The tough, fast punk of The Ramones shows up to kick things off with “I Will Control The Nation” before the perfect chord progression of “Bite by the Sand” adds a wild jerkiness, complementing the stability of the first song. I’m a sucker for albums that move, albums that actually mix things up between tracks, and it’s been a while since I’ve heard a record whose first two songs are juxtaposed as directly as Big Cats’. Credit for the whiplash between the two tracks must go to drummer Marie Uhler, whose work on “Bite by the Sand” and tracks like “My Boy, Black Metal” is reminiscent of Gary Young’s best work in Pavement’s early days. Other sections of the album also work in tandem the way the opening two tracks do, such as

the ballads “Heaven” and “My Kind of Battery.” “Heaven” isn’t a weak song so much as it is a victim of sequencing, as the melodic highs of “The Day No Trains Ran” threaten to overshadow its meditative burbling. However as “Heaven” progresses, it reveals its genius in Ward’s controlled blasts of thick guitar fuzz, lurking

behind Ward’s voice with a power that calls to mind the strumming of Husker Du-era Bob Mould at his moodiest. The tamer middle section brings Ward’s voice to the forefront for the first time in the album. “My Kind of Battery” also showcases Ward’s mono recording technique, as his mixing gives the vocals an

enchanting echo that dances around the lyrics. If the album has a weakness, it’s only in the familiarity of tracks like “My Life as a Smokestack” or “Another Magnet,” which don’t quite muster the energy of the album’s first half. That said, it’s still quite enjoyable 90s-esque pop, particularly “Another Magnet,”

which almost quotes R.E.M.’s “Gardening At Night” in its intro. But it’s no “Dos Hermanos.” At three times the length of any other song on the album, “Dos Hermanos” plays out like the aural equivalent of a Western, spending four minutes straddling the meanest riff Ward’s got as the band gurgles beneath him. In fact, “Dos Hermanos” features what might be the most stunning rhythm section performance on the record, with Uhler and bassist Charles Walker restraining their sound, as if waiting for just the right moment to draw their guns. Suddenly the music stops, and it’s a standoff, if only for a moment — rhythm section with guns drawn, Ward’s guitar held high in the air. Then the guitar comes back in as Ward sings, “It’s not all bad / It gets better with age,” in a crescendo until he strides straight up to the mic to accept his fate. The band explodes and shots are fired. It’s a powerful moment in a powerful song, made even more poignant by the dreamy waltz “Sleeper” that closes the album. It’d be difficult to top a song as riveting as “Dos Hermanos,” but it’s still a satisfying close to what is easily one of the best records I’ve heard of 2012.
