With an increase in the streetcar’s presence on campus, the city is working with the UA in order to inform the community about safety precautions while sharing the road. The Sun Link Tucson Streetcar, which will run from the University of Arizona Medical Center to Congress Street west of the freeway, was tested on campus for the first time on Friday and will be tested more often in the upcoming months as more streetcar vehicles arrive. The streetcar’s public relations team has been visiting different campus groups like Greek Life and the UA Visitor Center to talk to the community about streetcar safety and to show a six-minute public service announcement to the groups, said Joan Beckim, public relations coordinator for the streetcar project. The team also created an online safety campaign earlier this year, “Streetcar StreetSmart,” where the Tucson community can find videos and tips on how to safely maneuver along the corridor. “Be it as a bicyclist, pedestrian or a motorist that [the community] just be alert of the surroundings,” Beckim said. “People will see [the streetcar] on campus more frequently and should be prepared.” Shellie Ginn, Tucson Streetcar project manager, said streetcar testing on campus would initially take place during “non-peak” hours, meaning on the weekends before 3 p.m. However, as testing increases and more drivers go through training, the vehicles will run through campus anytime and along the entire system. The streetcar’s technology was designed for pedestrian areas, Ginn added. “We knew going into it that we were eventually going to be running it in that area,” Ginn said. “So we’ve got to be prepared to be able to run it [on campus] during
People will see [the streetcar] on campus more frequently and should be prepared.

Music blasted on the UA Mall Monday as organizations and community members gathered to celebrate Coming Out Week as part of LGBT History Month. Delta Lambda Phi, the Office of LGBTQ Affairs and Campus Health Service were only a few of the many organizations and people who gathered for the UA’s LGBTQ Resource Fair, which provided information about on and off-campus resources for students in the LGBTQ community. The fair was the first event for Coming Out Week, a week of celebration and encouragement for the LGBTQ community. Katie Kilby, co-director of Pride Alliance, said the goal of the event is to make a statement and for people to learn and to engage with the material. “We recognize that a lot of this is foreign to people, especially a lot of these labels, words and different things, and so it’s not just about the resources of our community groups, but it’s also about the education of materials,” Kirby said. “I think the people are engaging in it so far but also just having fun.” Resources at the fair were stationed to help not only LGBTQ community members but also the UA community, different stations offered engaging information about how to provide support for the LGBTQ community and showcasing all of the organizations that proudly
support LGBTQ students. “People learn more about it, because there’s a lot of stuff I don’t even know, and I’m gay,” said prospective UA student Tony Hall, 18. “I just feel it’s more informational for everyone to get to know everything and try and be as open as possible.” The variety of booths at the event were meant to address specific LGBTQ needs, ranging from the religious booths, for students who were seeking a more faith-based experience, to the Delta Lambda Phi booth, which welcomes both gay and straight male students who are interested in brotherhood and community. Straight allies and LGBTQ students were encouraged to learn about gender awareness and sexual orientation, and to help create diversity and inclusiveness. “I just hope it encourages them to learn more, especially for people who do feel unfamiliar with the LGBT community,” Kilby said. “Ultimately, our goal in the Pride Alliance [is] to create a safe and inclusive place on campus for our LGBT Wildcats, so if we can get our straight allies, a huge portion of our community here, to be a part of that in a variety of ways, we’ll be better off.” Passersby were encouraged to stop and spray-paint T-shirts with words and phrases like “romantic,” “pride,” “gay” and “ally of pride.” Attendees were also encouraged to leave their

The GPSC president addressed his concerns to Faculty Senate members during his report at their monthly meeting Monday, regarding his recent proposal that ASUA change its bylaws. During the Associated Students of the University of Arizona senate meeting on Wednesday, Zachary Brooks, president of Graduate and Professional Student Council, presented a proposal requesting that ASUA only represent undergraduate students, while GPSC be the exclusive advocate for graduate and professional students. In his report to the Faculty Senate, Brooks said GPSC is hopeful ASUA will consider the proposed change in its upcoming meeting on Wednesday, though he added it looks like ASUA does not support it. “Just as high school students don’t represent undergraduates, we do not represent faculty,” Brooks said. “We do not believe undergraduates can
comprehend what it means to be a graduate student. U of A graduates want to engage, innovate and partner, and above all else, never settle on becoming recognized as a campus partner.” Morgan Abraham, president of ASUA, also attended the meeting. “It’s such a shame that he keeps trying to involve all these people,” Abraham said regarding Brooks’ report. “I know administration doesn’t really want to handle something like this and this is kind of like an internal issue that ASUA and GPSC should be working on.” Abraham said he has yet to hear whether ASUA will vote on the bylaw changes at its upcoming meeting on Wednesday. “I’ve been trying to get a good gauge of if it’s going to happen or not,” Abraham said. “From what I understand right now, none of them [ASUA senators] are really interested in doing that.” Following Brooks’ report, Andrew Comrie, senior vice president for

TOM CLARIDA PLAYS guitar in the Student Union Memorial Center on Monday.
ON THE SPOT Vicente Lopez, undeclared sophomore Why do people go to college? For the most part, people go to college for a chance at the American dream. At least for me, going to college means that I can specialize in a field so that one day I will be better off. Is that actually the best way to make real the American Dream? Or is general knowledge or skill in multiple trades and subjects better? Well, I don’t think it is necessarily the only way to be successful, but I think college is essential for success. I think that this notion, that you don’t need college, is a foolish thing to believe in. For some people, yes, it did work, but either those people were geniuses or they had a strong work ethic and that drove them to success. Now, don’t get me wrong, school is not for everyone. I’ve seen kids who just struggle with school but who are really street-smart or just have a way to interact with society. So what’s the overall lesson here? College is great, but find your own niche? The overall lesson here is that exactly. College is important,
HOROSCOPES but not always necessary. For some people it’s good … and yes, it is also as important to find that “niche” in society, especially if one doesn’t pursue higher education.
Today’s Birthday (10/08/13). It’s a year of exploration and discovery, as new opportunities, skills and characters appear. Travel and studies carry you away. With consistent action and focus, your finances and career status grow joyfully. The gold is in your social network; it has what you need. Keep sharing, contributing to the common good. Nurture health and happiness. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.
What do you consider your niche? Something that you enjoy doing that is beneficial to you and others. An example would be [local cyclist] Adam Bryfogle. He is a very smart kid both in an educational scene and just being street-wise, if you will. He rides bikes and works at a bike shop and he loves doing both of them. I’m sure the desire for higher education is there, but it is not essential for him at this point.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — Your traveling boots are getting restless. Explore new options. Keep a lid on costs. Finish an old job. Do some long range planning first. Love lifts you higher. Get a running start.
Oh, I mean for you, personally. What do you enjoy doing that is beneficial for you and others? For me, it’s going to college. I enjoy being able to go to school and learning things from people who are highly qualified in their field of study — so much so that they can teach it. That is what I strive for: To be so educated in a certain field that I will be able to help others and teach them. Something about that just makes this all worth it, to be able to educate and help others; to be able to make myself available for those who were once in my shoes.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 5 — Stand firm for a cause. Figure out finances. Study where your money goes. Don’t let an opportunity slip between your fingers. It all works out, with positive outcome. Imagine success. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 6 — Consult with experts. Set a juicy goal. Keep costs down by declining frivolity. Finish one job before making a new mess. You don’t need experience. Consider a charming suggestion. It’s all good.

learned how to use the electronic buttons to open the car windows. “He figured it out right away,” said Anne Nelson, the human who drives the car while Charlie partakes in the fresh air. “He’s learned how to do it in every car we’ve owned.” The sources of Charlie’s potential angst are safety experts who warn that his
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 5 — Postpone a celebration. Assert your personal ideals. Things start working well. Shortages are temporary; it’s not a good time to gamble. There’s work to be done. Profit from meticulous service. Make requests; you’re irresistible. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 5 — Get the word out on your position, and clear up remaining doubts. Let others state theirs. There’s a new shuffle in your social circle. Don’t push. It works out fine with communication. Focus on fun together. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 5 — Dispel an illusion at work. Get an important job finished before leaving. Focus on taking care of home and family. Plan menus carefully, and buy only what you need. Increase the beauty level. Take pictures. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 6 — Pursue career dreams. Limits reappear. Minimize risks, and build on what you have. You’re super smart, and find it easier to concentrate. Invite someone to play. Use your network. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 6 — Consider the future. Take care at work. Stay objective in a tense situation. Avoid impulsive
window habit is dangerous. They point out that a dog with its head out a window of a moving car is exposed to dirt, rocks, bugs and other flying detritus. Plus, the wind can give them earaches, to say nothing of the fact that taking a sharp turn could cause the dog to fall out the window. While the advice holds merit from a human perspective, dogs don’t seem to agree. Riding down the street, jowls flapping in the wind, seems to put most dogs in a state of pure, euphoric glee. It certainly works that way for Charlie. “It’s his favorite thing,” Nelson said. “If I lock the windows (so they can’t be operated by the push button), he paws at it frantically until I let him put it down.”

spending. Don’t fund your dream yet. Develop the plan and strategy. A beneficial development arises. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 5 — You’re getting more sensitive, with extra confidence. Do a good job. Pass all previous records. Avoid gossip, gambling and shopping. You’re gaining authority. Keep it practical, and build solid infrastructure. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 5 — Shop carefully. Watch out for surprises. Take action for love, not money. Do it to gain deeper insight. Hold your temper, and stay sensitive to a loved one’s wishes. You’re exceptionally cute now. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 5 — You gain clarity now. There’s an unexpected development. Emotions could flare. This week is good for travel. It could get hot. You’re not in the game alone. Provide services, not cash. Use your magnetism and charm. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 5 — Career matters emerge. Provide support. Be careful where you step. Don’t encourage the peanut gallery when you all should be quiet and respectful. Notice a strong attraction. Don’t fall for a trick. Get ready at home.
Researchers aren’t sure exactly why dogs are so hooked on hanging out windows, but the best bet is that it has something to do with the all-you-cansmell smorgasbord of scents rushing at them. Plus it’s something cats aren’t good at. Despite the safety experts’ advice, Nelson concedes that she’s not likely to deny Charlie his windy treat. But she does find it necessary to limit it sometimes. “It gets annoying in the winter,” she conceded. “We have a deal: I give him a little fix, and then I close the window. As soon as I do that, he puts his face down by the air vent. He just loves having the air in his face.”

painted handprint on a “Define Yourself” poster. “I think it’s good that we have these opportunities for our students because it allows people to be open,” said Kylee Heflin, a psychology freshman. Interactive attractions included a rainbow backdrop painted on a wooden board where students could take pictures, and a gender identification area where anyone could mark their identification, as well as learn about various other types of gender identification. Students could also walk under a rainbow balloon arch, as a symbol of coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community or an LGBTQ ally. The UA LGBTQ community will host a week of Coming Out events, with the last one taking place on Sunday. Students and the Tucson community are encouraged to participate in Coming Out Week. “The goal of Coming Out Week is really to make a visible statement, to break that silence, to say, ‘We’re here. We’re out,’” Kilby said. “Coming Out Week is just about celebrating who we are and bringing people together.” — Follow Micah Montiel @MicahMontiel

There’s always going to be pros and cons.” Bill Davidson, marketing and public information manager for UA Parking and Transportation Services, said educating the UA community about streetcar safety will be a continuous process as new students and professors come to the UA each semester. PTS staff are also educating through distribution of safety brochures in popular places around campus like the Student Recreation Center and the Student Union Memorial Center, Davidson said. “I think … we have done all we can,” Davidson said. “But we have to be consistent with it in order to keep reaching the people that come into campus.”

It was decided that reviews should have a public forum and feedback session, so people could get a sense of what came out of the review, he added. Both administrators will have a public forum regarding their reviews this month, and anyone is welcome to attend. Rather than showcasing the actual review document, the idea of the public forum is to take the headlines of what the feedback was, and have the individual discuss what issues there may be, what they’re doing to address them and how they intend to move the unit they oversee forward, he added. Several informational items were also presented at the meeting, including a presentation by James A. Hyatt, interim senior vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer, and the business plan implementation of the current strategic plan by Comrie. Wanda Howell, chair of the faculty, ended the meeting with a discussion item regarding an upcoming breakfast that will take place between the Faculty Senate and the Arizona Board of Regents. “The purpose of this is for them to get to know faculty better,” Howell said. “They generally don’t know who we are, and certainly don’t know what we do … so this is our opportunity.”

Strategy in eSports similar to traditional sports BY Carson Suggs The Daily Wildcat
ore than 13,000 fans attended the final of the League of Legends Championship Series at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday, with countless more watching via online streams. The winners, Korean team SK Telecom T1, swept the series 3-0, claiming the $1 million prize. ESports, already wellestablished in Korea and other Asian countries, are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. and deserve to be promoted and taken as seriously as football, baseball or basketball. The LCS final, for instance, sold out in an hour, according to Forbes. Last year’s final had 8,000 attendees, and this year the Staples Center was filled to capacity. All matches leading up to the final were streamed online, and some matches garnered more than 400,000 views, according to IGN Entertainment. Stream viewership has been estimated in the millions both in North America and across the globe. A recent New York Times article profiling Major League Gaming showed just how much money and effort is put into these broadcasts. The level of communication and strategy necessary to achieve success in these games is akin to the coordination required in football and basketball. From the coaches to the players on the field (or on the computer, as it were), communication is crucial in achieving objectives, be they touchdowns or turrets. In both traditional sports and eSports, the team trumps the individual. And, like traditional sports, eSports foster community among players and fans, allowing for the same kind of postgaming we see with college and professional football. “[My] favorite thing about eSports is getting together with friends and watching the game we love played by professionals and admiring their skill,” said Benjamin Bossler, a member of the UA’s eSports club and a biosystems engineering sophomore. “I think it’s the same way with any sports fan.” With eSports-related stories appearing in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal in August and September, eSports are appearing on the national stage in big ways. From “Call of Duty” to “StarCraft II,” from “Dota 2” to “League of Legends,” eSports are simply another way for people to engage in friendly competition and watch the very best in the professional scene. ESports has become a global industry with “more fans, more players, more recognition from sponsors and more mainstream acceptance,” Bossler said. Noah Smith, an economics freshman, said that eSports can allow “random people from wherever” to “come together and have fun and work together.” Isn’t that the point of traditional sports as well? The rise of eSports is a thing to behold, and should not be belittled in light of traditional physical sports. — Carson Suggs is a senior studying English. Follow him @crsnsggs

University had responsibility to notify students about bedbugs BY Anthony Carli The Daily Wildcat
n Sept. 26, The Daily Wildcat reported an outbreak of bedbugs in the UA Main Library. It was not until the Wildcat’s report, though, that students were notified of the infestation that had occurred in a highly populated and heavily trafficked area of campus. While Facilities Management handled the outbreak swiftly and contained the pests, the university should have notified students of the outbreak and subsequent closure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bedbugs pose little to no medical risk to humans, but can serve as a nuisance when they infest an area.

You are not snuggling with cockroaches like you are with bedbugs. And if you get close enough, bedbugs can travel on your clothing, your backpack or in your shoes. They are mobile in a way that other pests are not. According to the CDC, bedbugs have seen a rapid rise in the U.S., so students should be made aware of the outbreak and what they should look for in the future to prevent any additional incidents. With novel cases such as this, students should be made aware of the issue not only to know what areas to avoid, but also so they can aid in the fight against pests in the future. — Anthony Carli is a political science senior.

I have yet to see a reason for these gender/ women’s studies classes. Probably because I already respect women. I don’t need some bogus class taught by some piled-higher-and-deeper (you refer to them as PhDs) person to explain this to me. I would prefer to have Even now, most a PhD teach the youth of restaurants on today: math, chemistry, campus that economics, and/or biology. identify as “The knowledge of ‘healthy options’ background learned in GWS classes is beneficial show options to self-growth and fostering that aren’t really positive environments for that healthy. others.” You cannot just state this … you have to cite examples. — Parent
lacked people skills. All jobs have co-workers, and they have to get along. Unless you’re an assassin or something. And while we’re clearing things up, the view is not a good source for feminist points of view. — Creepybunny
Tuition goes to lots of things. The Rec is just one example. CAPS is another example if you never use it (or have heard of it even; it’s pretty amazing). I don’t approve of the NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. but tax money still goes to them. In addition, GWS teaches about diversity which is always a great skill to have, critical analysis which shockingly is useful in day to day life (who would have guessed), and writing skills (which is awesome to have). Just because a major doesn’t have an immediate economic impact doesn’t mean it’s not useful to a career. The knowledge and background learned in GWS classes is beneficial to self-growth and fostering positive environments for others. Let’s be real, both of those are amazing skills to have. — hahahaha
In response to “More healthy, inexpensive options needed on campus” (by Elizabeth Eaton, Oct. 2) I noticed this issue during my freshman year. Previously, the [Student] Union website did post the nutritional information, but it was mostly incorrect. Items that were labeled as “low fat” really weren’t. Even now, most restaurants on campus that identify “healthy options” show options that aren’t really that healthy. I learned that the best options are to either buy groceries and cook my own food, or go to the hospital on the other side of Speedway for cheap healthy options. — MPH student
But I always hear the same thing about math: I will never use it, etc. I see T-shirts with this on it. But: you solve for x everyday of your life — you ask yourself: how much money do I have left? X = how much money I have left. X = current balance — the-the-cost-of-this-stupid-thingthat-I-don’t-need.

POLICE BEAT BY MICAH MONTIEL The Daily Wildcat
On Sunday at 11:49 p.m., a University of Arizona Police Department officer arrested a UA student near campus for possession of drug paraphernalia. While an officer was monitoring traffic, he noticed a car’s driver side headlight was out and pulled it over. The car had three UA students inside. The student in the passenger seat said the vehicle was his, but he had left his vehicle registration and proof of insurance in his room. The officer said he could smell marijuana coming from the car. The students said there was no marijuana in the car at that particular time, but there had been at some point in the past. Two more UAPD officers came to the scene. They split up the passengers as one officer talked with the owner of the car. The owner said that he was “pretty sure” there wasn’t any marijuana or drug paraphernalia in the car. Officers requested to search the car. They found a metal grinder with some marijuana residue inside. They also found a few clear plastic bags with marijuana residue. The owner admitted that everything belonged to him. Officers gave the owner a criminal citation for possession of drug paraphernalia and released him.
A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office on Monday at 7:10 p.m. for having a fake identification card. The wallet had been turned in to UAPD. While looking in the wallet for the owner’s information, two IDs from different states were found. One ID was real while the fake ID stated the owner of the wallet was 21 years old. UAPD contacted the owner of the IDs and told her to go to UAPD to claim her wallet. When she arrived, officers asked her about the fake card. She said her old roommate had given it to her as a gift, but she had never used it or planned to use it. UAPD confiscated the card.
On Monday, UAPD officers were called regarding the assault of a UA student in the Student Union Memorial Center at 9:07 p.m. When officers arrived to the union, a man standing nearby pointed out the student who made the call. The student said he was walking east through the student union’s breezeway to the library. He said he heard footsteps behind him and was then shoved hard in the back. He turned around quickly and saw a man running toward the UofA Bookstore. The student was not injured, but when he checked his laptop in his backpack, he found the screen was broken and reported the incident to UAPD. The student told the officers he couldn’t see the man’s face but he gave a physical description of what the man was wearing. Officers searched the area but could not find the man. Pictures were taken of the broken computer screen and submitted to UAPD as evidence. The student said he wanted to act in future court procedures. No other legal action was taken.

MARQUIS FLOWERS chases down Husky Bishop Sankey on Sept. 28 at Washington. Flowers is one of only two Wildcats offered scholarships by USC.
BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat Being offered a football scholarship by USC can be a dream come true for high school athletes. So it may come as a surprise that Arizona’s roster, which features more than 100 student-athletes, roughly 30 of whom come from the greater Los Angeles area, has only two players who were offered a scholarship by USC, the Wildcats’ week six opponent. “Last year, I asked the team [who had been recruited by USC],” said head coach Rich Rodriguez. “Three guys raised their hands and said they were recruited, and two of them were lying.” Arizona senior linebacker Marquis Flowers was the only one who was telling the truth. While attending Millennium High School in Goodyear, Ariz., he was offered 13 scholarships, including one from USC, by the time he graduated in 2010. Reserve junior Wildcat quarterback Jesse Scroggins is a Lakewood, Calif., native. After graduating from Lakewood High School, he attended USC and played for the Trojans from 2010 to 2011 before transferring.

What’s it like having such a famous relative? It’s a lot to live up to, but I mean, not really. Also, I like the challenge and it just pushes me a little more. I like it. I found an old newspaper story about you where you were deciding between being a sports writer and a broadcaster. Have you nailed what you want to do when you graduate yet?
BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat
While a good amount of the quality in Arizona’s 2013-14 men’s basketball team comes from strong underclassmen talent, the leadership positions won’t be filled by freshmen phenoms like Aaron Gordon or Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Instead, upperclassmen like Nick Johnson will provide the knowledge and experience necessary to support the team. Last year, Johnson set the defensive tone for the Wildcats and was a major contributor for Arizona during its run in the Pac-12 Tournament, where he averaged a team-leading 14.0 points per game. In Arizona’s 79-69 victory against Colorado last March, he forced Spencer Dinwiddle to go 4-of-12 from the floor and led the team to the semifinals despite key turnovers and bad bounces. The Gilbert, Ariz., native subsequently earned an honorable mention on the Pac-12 AllDefensive Team. This year, he represents one of just three potential upperclassmen starters, all of whom are guards, and is projected to line up next to either senior Jordin Mayes or junior transfer T.J. McConnell. Johnson, the team’s starting shooting guard, provides a voice for the team off the court and is responsible for keeping the Wildcats confident and pumped up in the locker room.
Not really. I’m going to keep my options open, see where school takes me. But we’ll see. I want to do a little bit of both, but we’ll see. There’s been a lot of former Wildcats working in broadcast. Why do you think there are so many? RYAN REVOCK/THE DAILY WILDCAT
SOPHOMORE GUARD Jacob Hazzard is a pre-journalism major who has the inspiration of both his grandfather and former Wildcat broadcasters.
BY JAMES KELLEY
The Daily Wildcat The next in the long line of Wildcats working in the media could be Arizona men’s basketball walk-on guard Jacob Hazzard. The pre-journalism sophomore played 11 minutes last year in six appearances. He grabbed a rebound against Texas Tech and had an assist against NAU. Jacob Hazzard is a grandson of the famous UCLA basketball player Walt Hazzard, who was the starting point guard on John Wooden’s first national championship team in 1964. Walt Hazzard, who died in 2011, served as the Bruins’ head coach from 1984 to 1988. The Daily Wildcat caught up with Jacob Hazzard before the Wildcats start the season with the
McDonald’s Red-Blue Game on Saturday. Why did you pick the UA? The coaches here, the student support and the fans here supporting you is great. It felt like a family; it felt like I was at home, not too far away from home. I wanted to get away from home, away from LA, as well. It was a good option. How much of an influence did your grandfather have on your game? He had a big influence. He was my idol in basketball and I miss him today. But he’s looking down and I’m sure he’s smiling and he’s proud. And I just try to make my game better every day and hope to be like him someday.
It’s a great network here and I feel like people who went here, like Steve Kerr, he’s an NBA broadcaster, I kind of like to network with them to help me get a step ahead. So we’ll see what happens when I graduate, but I’m just looking forward to the season right now. Have you talked to him or Tom Tolbert or any of those guys? I talked to Steve Kerr a couple times, but not really, not a lot. About the season in general, how good do you think the team is this year?
Last year I asked the team [who had been recruited by USC]. Three guys raised their hands [...] and two of them were lying. — Rich Rodriguez, head coach

JUNIOR GUARD NICK JOHNSON is poised to take a bigger leadership role.
“T.J., Mayes, [and I] are trying to [take a larger] leadership role and trying to ease in some of these freshman,” Johnson said. “I’ve had four really great leaders in my time here to learn from. My freshman year, I had Kyle Fogg who was like a big brother to me and really taught me to work hard all season and fight for what you want. Then [last year], I had Solomon [Hill], Kevin [Parrom] and Mark [Lyons] who each [taught] me a few traits themselves.” Johnson should be on the court more than Mayes, so he can play a bigger role and although McConnell is a point guard, the transfer from Duquesne played his first two seasons in the Atlantic 10, not the more difficult Pac-12. The very athletic Johnson is ideally suited to fill the leadership role. This year, Johnson’s experience will provide a stable foundation, from which the team will be able to grow and become stronger offensively and defensively. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17

[McConnell] going to have a huge impact. He’s a great player at point guard and the new guys that are coming in, they’re hungry and we’re just looking for guys to compete and try to win. What are your thoughts on the schedule? Yeah, we take it one game at a time, though, not try and get ahead of ourselves. Right now, we just try and worry about practice and getting ready for the season, with that RedBlue game coming up. — Follow James Kelley @JamesKelley520

Another improv festival, Fracas!, takes place in California, and in past years, the Charles Darwin Experience has traveled to the festival by car. “Lots of memories are made when we are stuck in a car together,” Campbell said. “We are a close knit group.” After seeing the group perform at orientation, creative writing junior Bryce Villalpando said she was intimidated by the current members when she auditioned as a freshman. Villalpando was later selected as a member and said the experience has been more than just an extracurricular activity. “I found myself in improv,” Villalpando said. “I immediately had friends that took me in like family.” Thanks to its regular performances, the group has garnered its fair share of good publicity.

Buckley said his friends had recommended that he attend a show and he said he was pleasantly surprised. “I wasn’t sure what to expect, and it was amazing,” Buckley said. Additionally, the group had a few regular attendees at the start of this semester. Chemical engineering sophomore Adam Fileccia hasn’t missed a show since last semester. “I loved the people on stage and started going every week,” Fileccia said. “Each member has a genuine humor that they bring to the stage.” Undeclared freshman Marina Sharpe said she knew about the Charles Darwin Experience before even moving to Tucson from Scottsdale, adding that some of the group’s current members attended her high school, and one of her drama teachers was a Darwin alum. Sharpe said she plans to audition next year for the Charles Darwin Experience. “I would die of happiness if I got in,” Sharpe said. “They’re so quick-witted. The ideas they come up with are amazing.” — Follow Arts reporter Erin Shanahan @ItsErinShanahan

But in roughly four months’ time when this is out on DVD, you could do worse for a rental.

Q If a mosquito bites you
when you’re drunk, will the mosquito get drunk too?
A. around when they saw a drunken man. One says to the
This reminds us of a joke. Two mosquitoes were buzzin’
other, “You bite him. I’m driving.”
But, no, skeeters don’t get inebriated biting drunk people. Not surprisingly, there are no specific studies on this phenomenon. But scientists, utilizing devices called inebriometers that puff ethanol vapors at insects and measure their sensitivity, have documented lab studies in which honeybees flew upside down and fruit flies performed poorly on learning tests when inebriated. (Don’t you wonder just what were those fruit flies trying to learn?) According to entomologist Coby Schal of North Carolina State University, bugs demonstrate a pretty high tolerance and are able to withstand vapor concentrations of 60% alcohol. “Someone who’s had 10 drinks might have a blood alcohol content of 0.2 percent. To a mosquito, a blood meal that contains 0.2 percent alcohol is like drinking a beer diluted 25-fold.” Additionally, for mosquitoes, alcohol (and any fluid other than blood) is diverted to a “holding pouch,” where enzymes break it down before it hits their nervous system. However, it’s scientifically proven that people consuming alcohol are more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes than those who are not drinking. Skeeters are attracted to certain smells, and those lady mosquitoes (yes, only females bite) tend to go for “bar flies.” BTW, to amp up the “yuck” factor, mosquitoes don’t bite you for food since they feed off of plant nectar. Females suck your blood to get a protein needed to develop their eggs. Sounds like a creepy micro-combination of the Alien and Twilight movies. It turns out we are just a parasitic part of the circle of life for mosquitoes, especially when we’re drinking.

Improv troupe returns with shows

MEMBERS OF THE CHARLES DARWIN Experience perform during this year’s Valentine’s Day show. The UA’s improv comedy troupe hosts performances at 10 p.m. every Tuesday night in Gallagher Theater.
Being cast in the Charles Darwin Experience improv comedy troupe was one of the best days in Michael Campbell’s
college career. So much so that the psychology senior said he plans to pursue acting and comedy in Los Angeles and Chicago. “Darwin is the next step to what I want to do in life,” Campbell said. “I love improv the most.”
With rehearsals and workshops now in full swing, the UA’s own improv comedy group has begun hosting performances in the Student Union Memorial Center’s Gallagher Theater at 10 p.m. on Tuesday nights. The group’s approach to comedy,
Campbell said, has evolved into a style similar to the prominent television comedy show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” “You’ll love the show instantly,” he said. “It’s an escape from school stress and convenient for on-campus students.”
‘Sister Act’ to bring soul to Centennial Hall this week BY erin shanahan
The Daily Wildcat Broadway in Tucson General Manager Lendre Kearns didn’t mince words about the company’s production of “Sister Act.” “How can you miss nuns in sequins?” she said. The musical comedy will open tonight at UA Centennial Hall and is scheduled to run through Sunday. Based off of the 1992 film, the musical follows Deloris Van Carter, a Reno, Nev., lounge singer who is sent into witness protection in a convent after witnessing her mobster boyfriend commit murder. Deloris is soon ordered to join the choir, and ends up coaching the other singers to success. “Sister Act” is a show full of fun and energy featuring a unique, contemporary R&B score. Through music and song the characters learn about themselves, Kearns said, starting as caricatures and then slowly changing into relatable people. “‘Sister Act’ has characters you fall in love with,” Kearns said. “Comedy succeeds with characters you can root for.” Broadway in Tucson is celebrating its 10th anniversary season by collaborating with UApresents at Centennial Hall. Kearns added that the partnership allows Broadway in Tucson

The Charles Darwin Experience performs for UA sororities, clubs, residence halls and at various other fundraising events. Additionally, it competes at college improv festivals around the country, Campbell added.

productions to be more accessible and to bring locals to campus. The collaboration of Broadway in Tucson and UApresents will add a diverse quality to the performances at Centennial Hall, Kearns added. Performances such as “Sister Act” will “add a note to the entertainment,” Kearns said. Two hours before every show, the Student Rush sale at the
box office will offer $25 CatCard tickets, up to two per student, said Broadway in Tucson marketing and sales manager Mario Di Vetta. Student prices are always made available at Broadway in Tucson shows, Vetta said. The arts are meant to be enjoyed by everyone, Vetta said, adding that anyone familiar with the movie starring Whoopi Goldberg
is guaranteed to enjoy the musical. The musical score was written by Alan Menken, a composer with eight Oscars under his belt for movies such as “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid.” The cast of this production of “Sister Act” will be the first to welcome back Chester Gregory, who is reprising his role of “Eddie” from the original show on Broadway, Vetta said, adding that this week’s production is “an opportunity feet away to see a Broadway show.” The national tour cast of “Sister Act” celebrated its second anniversary last week. UApresents is delighted to host “Sister Act” and other Broadway in Tucson productions, said Darsen Campbell, UApresents marketing and publicity manager. “’Sister Act’ is a high energy show,” Campbell said. “It is a great way to kick off the season with Broadway in Tucson.”
