Ansel Adams authenticated Reports Center for Creative Photography verifies claims of original works By Rebecca Rillos ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA Center for Creative Photography plays an increasingly larger role in questioning the authenticity of emerging photographs claimed to be Ansel Adams originals. The center was co-founded by Adams in 1975 and is home to the only Adams archive in the world. The collection includes approximately 3,000 fine prints and 40,000
negatives, according to Rebecca Senf, acting senior curator for the Center for Creative Photography. Adams was drawn to donating the majority of his life’s work to the center because it was one of the few institutions at the time primarily focused primarily on photography, Senf said. Adams worked closely with then-UA President John Schaefer to establish a center that was (essentially) for photography, she said. “He (Adams) had spent his entire
lifetime championing the medium of photography as a fine art,” Senf said. “So the opportunity to be an anchor at an institution that had to do with the medium he loved was incredibly appealing to him.” Senf has spent seven years studying Adams’ work and is one of the center’s primary Adams experts, along with archivist Leslie Calmes, who has worked with Adams’ photography for roughly 20 years. A recent article by The New
York Times detailed an increase in emerging photographs that people believe to be the work of Adams. Senf said people come to the center almost monthly for authentication consults regarding possible Adams photographs. “It is a normal activity for the center for someone to bring us a print they think might be by Adams and ask us to help them authenticate it,” Senf said.

Researchers battle malaria By Lívia Fialho ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
A UA lab successfully engineered mosquitoes unable to transmit malaria last year. Now, researchers are trying to understand exactly how it happened while getting mixed reactions from national media. This month, Time Magazine picked the research as one of its top 50 inventions of 2010. Michael Riehle, an associate professor of entomology, and his team were surprised when in their first try, there were no malaria-causing parasites in the mosquitoes. By increasing insulin-signaling genes and regulating it in the mosquito’s gut, they were able to completely kill the parasite it carries. Although this is not the first type of malaria-resistant mosquitoes developed, it is the first one to completely block the parasite, Riehle said. DNA targeting the parasite and other control measures such as shortening life span are injected in mosquito eggs. For mosquito-borne diseases, malaria is one of the most important ones worldwide, infecting one to 3 million people annually, he said. But the biggest challenge is still ahead of them: The ultimate goal is to replace wild mosquito populations with transgenic ones without the parasite. “Current control strategies (like) insecticides, bed nets, they work great. But as soon as the control measures stop — because you’ve pretty much wiped out all the mosquitoes in the area — and create this ecological void, they come right back,” he said. The idea that entire mosquito populations could be genetically modified to prevent one of the most important infectious diseases was not entirely well-received. Newsweek magazine published an opinion piece in August criticizing the “God”-type research and the possible effects of releasing the mosquitoes would have

in the environment. Riehle doesn’t foresee any major disasters over it. “If you go in and wipe out mosquito populations with DDT, I’d imagine that would have a much greater impact,” he said. Before transgenic mosquitoes are released, extensive testing would take place. They would first be tested in secure greenhouses in malariaendemic areas, then in a geographically isolated area, like an island. They must also ensure the gene preventing the parasite is inherited by 100 percent of the progeny. “You hear lots of horror stories about gigantic mosquitoes coming out of genetically engineered MOSQUITOES, page 3

redact private info
Police reveal when information is withheld from public view By Yael Schusterman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Police reports are open to the public, but do you ever wonder how open they are? The University of Arizona Police Department follows specific policies and procedures when dealing with police reports and, more specifically, redactions — information excluded — according to Luis Puig, UAPD custodian of public records. Puig said there is no law regarding redactions in police reports; it is something extended to certain victims. For instance, the names of rape victims would almost always be redacted; and juvenile victims and Social Security numbers are typically redacted. The UAPD record section staff is responsible for physically redacting every document the department receives. Redaction policies are that officers will make a copy of a report when it is authorized to be released, white out identified information and then keep a copy on file. Puig said if a high-profile case is under investigation and releasing the names of the witnesses would hinder prosecution of the crime or harm the victim, he would consult his commander and see if withholding that information would be in the best interest of the individual. He recalled an instance a few years ago when a resident assistant reported a couple of students with possession of marijuana in their dorm. The students were arrested and the following day came down to the records section wanting to see what was written up. Puig said he felt uncomfortable releasing the whole copy because of the way it was being asked for, and he did not want the RA to be harmed. “We call it the balancing test,” REDACTIONS, page 3
Gobble, gobble: Students celebrate early By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students feasted for turkey day early at the Park Student Union on Monday. Dinner lasted from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and included turkey, stuffing, vegetables, a bread roll, a choice of pie and a drink. Students shuffled in to form a line to collect their $7.99 meal on a Styrofoam take-out plate, and then sat in a decorated area of the dining hall. Lupita Lopez, the retail manager at the PSU, was behind the operations of putting together the Thanksgiving meal. “It’s something that had been done at the old student union, but we revived it and started doing it again six years ago,” she said. Lopez said she expected about 100 to 150 people to show up.
Preparations for the meal began 24 hours in advance. “We just wanted to say thank you to all the students,” she added. “We decorate the hall and we’re trying to provide a Thanksgiving atmosphere for students who stay on campus and don’t go home for Thanksgiving,” she added. Andrew Trickey-Glassman and Juan Chavez, both aerospace engineering freshmen, ate at the union’s Thanksgiving dinner together. “It’s really good,” TrickeyGlassman said. He’ll be flying back home to New Mexico on Wednesday, where he will have a second Thanksgiving meal with his immediate family. Both men are looking forward to “stuffing their faces” with food on Thanksgiving, and “definitely football the next day.”

Operations management junior How do you feel about studying abroad? I think it’s a good idea for people to do it, definitely looks good on a resume. Are you going to do it? No, not me personally. Where would you want to go if you could do it? Europe, definitely Germany, because I like cars a lot and I’d love to go to Stuttgart, and see the Porsche factory, they have a Porsche museum. So is your dream car a Porsche, specifically? No, my dream car would be a Danish car, it’s called a Spyker, but a Porsche would suffice, definitely. For sure. What kind of whip are you driving now? I drive a Honda Civic Si. OK, classic. With the holidays quickly approaching, have you started thinking about any New Year’s Eve plans? It’s never too soon for New Year’s. I don’t have any New Year’s plans. What did you do last year? I went to my friend’s party way out in the desert, like way up in Phoenix. A desert party? Like in the actual desert? Kind of. It was just way out there where nobody ever wants to live. Did you follow through with your New Year’s resolutions? Yeah, I did actually, just being active and stuff, which definitely paid off now. What do you do to stay active? It’s all about making it fun, I go hiking a lot. I’m getting ready for a trip to the Grand Canyon, I’m doing a rim to rim to rim to rim hike. Over Thanksgiving break? No, actually, I’m getting ready for it now, it’s over spring break with my brother because we are going to do it in one day. That’s awesome. Do you guys go actual rock climbing through the canyons? No, we do it on the trail. It’s actually a wellmaintained trail, about 48 miles. Will you guys sleep and eat? No. Well, we will eat but we won’t be sleeping. We are trying to do it in less than 24 hours. That sounds like a (daring) plan. Is that one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2011? No, I am going to wait till New Year’s to start thinking about those. Pumped for Thanksgiving? Very. I’m excited to see my family and take a break from classes. — Caroline Nachazel

Dorito-shaped UFOs spotted over Britain Flying saucers are one thing, but flying snack chips? England appears to be the latest hot spot for UFOs shaped like triangles or, if you will, Doritos. Several sightings of a chipshaped object have occurred over the U.K. in the past few years, the Daily Mail reports. The latest report emerged last week when a quality inspector, Munesh Mistry, witnessed a triangular object — dubbed locally as the “Dudley Dorito” from
the British town of Dudley — in the sky near his Tipton, West Midlands, home. Mistry said he and a friend saw “an amazing fast-moving and silent craft in the shape of a triangle made up of what appeared to be three lights fly across the sky at a mind-boggling speed.” Triangular-shaped UFOs have been seen over different regions of the U.K. since 2007. In 2008, when Britain’s Ministry of Defense began releasing UFO
files dating back 40 years, it indicated that many reports of unidentified objects had been initially kept secret while the government determined if enemy aircraft was the cause of the sightings. “The Ministry of Defense has no other interest or role regarding UFO matters and does not consider questions regarding the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial life forms,” the ministry said in a 2008 statement. — AOL News

Curator warns people to be cautious when buying art
ADAMS continued from page 1
The center uses an initial three-step method to determine a photograph’s authenticity. First, the staff checks to see if an identical print exists in their collection. If one does they can certify the photograph is Adams’ work. If the center cannot find a match, then they move to step two and check the print against the 40,000 negatives in the archive. If they cannot locate the photograph then, they look at the published sources to see if the print matches against something published by Adams. “Once we’ve moved beyond those three and we haven’t been able to find an exact match, then we are never going to be able to say without a doubt that something is or is not by Ansel Adams,” Senf said. In these cases, determining the

validity of a photograph moves into much grayer territory, she said. The center utilizes other methods of verifying the work in question, such as crossing the paper type, handwriting, and possible time frame of when the photograph was taken against the styles and history of Adams. To be able to conduct these processes, Senf said, takes years of experience and connoisseurship. Senf warns people to be Courtesy of The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust cautious of where and from Photograph by Ansel Adams.

organisms,” Riehle said; “at the end of the day, this is the exact same mosquito except for the addition of this small piece of DNA on their genome.” The research is a collaborative effort with the University of California, Davis, where researchers insert the plasmodium parasite and see the impacts of the DNA piece included. At the UA, the research focuses on mosquito longevity and reproduction, which made the success in eradicating the parasite surprising, Yevgeniya Antonova said.
THANKSGIVING continued from page 1 Alex Nunez, a history sophomore, said he usually dines at the union because it is conveniently located close to his dorm, Coronado Residence Hall. He saw flyers advertising the Thanksgiving dinner, but hadn’t heard of it otherwise. “The food is actually really, really good,” he said. His Thanksgiving meal back home in Phoenix is “basically the same” except “we have the basics at my grandparents’ house, but we also always have tamales,” Nunez said. “I’m looking forward to all the array of good food,” he added. Lopez and other staff members at the union set
Antonova, an entomology research associate, has been involved in the study for two years. One key element in proving its effectiveness was showing transgenic mosquitoes’ “fitness” wasn’t reduced by the new gene, she said. The new gene would not prevent the mosquitoes from being released in the wild and be able to survive. Transgenic mosquitoes do lead a shorter life, something Riehle thought of, she said. The reason for that is in the amount of time it takes for the parasite to
grow. Shortening the life span in “at least two days” will make the parasite unable to fully develop and infect someone. The possibility of putting an end to malaria made Antonova join the project, with the transgenic element being something new and stimulating, she said. “I don’t know what we will win, in the way that people will develop vaccines … or try to kill all the mosquitoes,” Antonova said. “But if altogether we collaborate efforts, maybe we’ll be able to stop malaria at some point.”
‘Friends are your family here on campus, your substitute family’
up tables and decorated them. “We got the word out on Facebook with the Arizona Student Unions account, by word of mouth and flyers,” she said. “We also have sophomores and juniors who know about it and keep coming back.” The event was put on to give students a chance to celebrate the holiday with their friends. “Friends are your family here on campus, your substitute family that you make at UA,” Lopez said. “This dinner is the one time you get to spend Thanksgiving with your adoptive school family, then go home and have
dinner with your family. A lot of times even students who go home to their families wish they could invite friends to join them, but sometimes friends live across the country, and this is their last chance to eat together and celebrate.” Highland Market will be putting on the same type of dinner today, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Paul Carter, supervisor of Highland Market, said they have prepared enough food for 150 people. “We’ve been doing this for about four or five years now, and we’ve just been set on that number so I don’t think we’ll run out,” he said. “It’s just a nice din-
ner to give back to students before they go home for their own Thanksgiving.”

Puig said. “Every document is subject to inspection by the public. The fact that it’s active, I have to do a balancing test to make sure we are not interfering with operations.” Puig said names do get released at times, sometimes unintentionally, because sometimes it can be difficult to redact every single name. Isabel Trujillo, supervisor of Tucson police records, said redactions are personal identification information such as date of birth and Social Security numbers. When dealing with civil cases, no information is redacted, Trujillo said. If there is a closed investigation or a misdemeanor arrest case and it is not assigned to a detective, redactions would include: date of birth, Social Security numbers, victim addresses and information on anyone under the age of 13. All suspect information is removed, she said, except brief descriptions like “Hispanic male.” “If cases are under investigation we send them to a detective and they tell us what can be released,” she said. “They don’t want to jeopardize information at their digression.” Collision reports are different, Trujillo said. Suspect vehicle information is removed unless it is a hit and run. “The reports are usually clear cut,” Trujillo said. Political science sopho-

Pick a season and dress accordingly
There’s no denying it — Tucson weather is weird. You might wake up and have to throw on a parka and long underwear to brave the freezing winds on your walk to your 8 a.m. class, then be able to catch some rays outside in a bikini by noon. It’s hard to know what clothing you’ll need throughout the day. However, some students seem to be responding to this conundrum with, ahem, “creative” outfits. The worst of these, of course, is the perennially tacky fuzzy boots (Uggs or knock-offs) and Daisy Dukes. Individually, each of these items of clothing constitutes a questionable fashion choice, but together, they’re atrocious. There has to be a better choice than to walk around campus looking like a snow bunny who has misplaced her pants. Women aren’t the only culprits when it comes to schizophrenic clothing choices. Men, too, can be spotted sporting tank tops under hooded sweatshirts. If you’re cold, might we suggest sleeves? Although they’re responses to unpredictable weather patterns, these ensembles earn an alltoo-fitting grade of incomplete.
Give thanks for benevolent class-cancellers
Technically, the university has only canceled classes on Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. This leaves many students in a lurch, especially those who have several hours of travel time and a lot of groping by airport security separating them from Thanksgiving dinner. Luckily, many professors have found it in their hearts to cancel Wednesday classes, allowing students plenty of time to get home before Thursday’s festivities. Some have even called off lessons all week — a veritable embarrassment of riches in the college student’s harried life. Not to mix holiday metaphors, but those instructors who insist on holding classes or pulling nasty tricks like giving pop quizzes on Wednesday are just plain Scrooges. Unless there’s an incredibly good reason to hold class, professors should get into the spirit of the season and let their students begin their celebration just a little bit early. Those who have already done so get a resounding pass, and maybe even a slice or two of pumpkin pie from grateful students next Monday.
Lovers of language, please refudiate
Last week, the New Oxford American Dictionary named “refudiate” its 2010 Word of the Year. The mash-up of refute and repudiate was coined by Sarah Palin in a tweet in July. Palin, in response to the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in New York, wrote, “Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.” There are innumerable things wrong with the tweet, ideologically as well as linguistically (pls? Are you a seventh grader with a new cell phone?). And now the dictionary itself, which should be the last bastion against this kind of sad misuse of language, has chosen to actually reward Palin for her garbled nonsense. On the Oxford University Press blog, an editor defended the choice, writing “From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used ‘refudiate,’ we have concluded that neither ‘refute’ nor ‘repudiate’ seems consistently precise, and that ‘refudiate’ more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of ‘reject.’” That’s an incredibly generous interpretation of what was probably just a misspelling gone viral. For legitimizing the word, and for adding to Palin’s already overly large ego — she compared her use of “refudiate” to Shakespeare’s penchant for inventive language in another tweet — the New Oxford American Dictionary gets a fail.

Bristol Palin bristles America Tyler Quillin
here is a brewing controversy in millions of Americans’ living rooms. No, it is not a nuclear Iran. No, it is not our nation’s fiscal affairs. No, it is not Auburn quarterback Cam Newton’s alleged NCAA violations. The controversy I refer to is Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin’s advancement on to the next round of “Dancing With the Stars.” Despite having the lowest judges’ scores of all contestants for a couple weeks now, the voters at home have kept her on the show. For those of you who live under a rock and are somehow unaware of how the show works, allow me to break it down for you. “Stars” are chosen to dance with professional dancers. They work with an assigned professional throughout the week on assigned dancing styles and then perform them on the air. The professional judges assess and score their performance based on technique, footwork, energy and other qualities. However, this is only one portion of their overall score. America gets to vote via text message or online at ABC’s website. Herein lies the root of our discussion. The biggest issue that has ruffled the feathers of the masses is that, though Bristol Palin has been incontrovertibly the worst of the “star” dancers each week, she has been
forwarded on thanks to extremely influential support by at-home voters. This situation strikes me as somewhat comical in its entirety. First of all, in what conception of the term “star” does Bristol Palin qualify? Even in the loosest understanding of the term, no halfway intelligent human being would deem her such. This poses two possibilities: either “Dancing With the Stars,” the most popular television show on the air at present, is hurting for contestants, or America truly considers her a “star.” Both options seem farfetched to me. I am also perplexed that America is taking this show so seriously. It is undeniably a glorified popularity contest. We all know that if it was serious about dancing, David Hasselhoff would be awing show producers with his ridiculous skills into prematurely hoisting the winners’ trophy long before now and long before the “championship” round had come to pass. It is fun to watch celebrities try their “foot” at dancing and see some of them progress, but it continues to disrupt my delicate sensibilities when I hear the degree of frustration and anger accumulating around the nation in regards to a meaningless television show such as “Dancing With the Stars.” It is this level of illogical frustration that apparently drove a 67-year-old man in Wisconsin to fire a shotgun round into his television upon hearing the news of Bristol
Palin’s advancement. Gee golly willikers sir, you really showed her. Enjoy these shows, but take them for the silly entertainment they are and not the intensely serious forms of competition that dictate the mood one arises with in the morning. As for those calling Bristol Palin’s appearance and success on the show a political statement, I find this difficult to swallow as well. Indeed, it proves a nice show of visibility for Bristol Palin’s last name and for her mother sitting in the audience, cheering her daughter on. But, other than visibility, what advantage might this give the Palins? If anything it appears to have backfired, based on listening to the talking heads on various news networks. Some also say Bristol Palin’s success is due to her mother’s Tea Party supporters. If this is the case, the hilarity continues. All I have to say to them is, “Go get ‘em!” First, Republican control of the U.S. House of Representatives, then winner of “Dancing With the Stars.” The sky is the limit, Tea Party. As perturbing as it may be to swallow that “Dancing With the Stars” is a gimmick and carries no real weight on our lives as Americans, I completely understand people’s frustration with Bristol’s advancement. However, let us remember what it is we are watching and what real issues plague our everyday lives at present. This is merely a distraction of fun and silly entertainment. Do not make it more than what it is. — Tyler Quillin is a senior majoring in philosophy and English.

MAILBAG City must respect neighborhood residents’ rights Jacob Winkler ’s letter (Nov. 19) on the Jefferson Park neighborhood was most offensive to me. It is difficult to understand how a future regional developer/planner and a neighborhood resident would describe this section of town in such a negative and pejorative fashion. His description of the area is a distorted and lopsided depiction of the neighborhood. Since I have owned a home in this part of town since 1975, I want to present another perspective. This area of town has enormous historical value both to the UA and the city of Tucson. Jefferson Park was part of a homestead ranch, adjoining the university campus. The colorful stone wall around today’s inner campus was built to keep the ranch’s cattle off the university grounds. The original ranch house and smaller homes of ranch hands still stand today. These houses add real character to this established neighborhood. The uniqueness of the neighborhood is created by its tremendous housing diversity. The Great Generation, survivors of the Great Depression and the World War II, built their homes in this neighborhood during the late ‘40s and into the ‘50s. Professors, judges, city staffers, et al. reared their families in this region of Tucson. Jefferson Park Elementary, recently closed by the school district, was considered the best grade school in Tucson for many years. There are many beautiful homes in this area, displaying various styles of Southwestern architecture. Anther wonderful neighborhood feature is the large yards, allowing residents to use both their front and backyards. The alleys offer residents access to their property, serve as a conduit
for all electrical, telephone and cable lines and provide space for city garbage dumpsters. Most Tucson housing developments lack the privacy, convenience and ambience of Jefferson Park. In the 1970s, when the original residents moved or died, their houses were often sold to absentee-property owners, many living out-of-state. Because these homes were built on large city lots, many investors/owners decided to increase their investment profits by building small, inexpensive apartments on the alleyways. Many long-term residents were upset by this building phase, changing the initial character of our single-family dwelling neighborhood. However, city zoning codes allowed these owners to build these small apartments on their property. Unfortunately, this building continues on alleyways. In recent years, the mini-dorm phenomenon started in our neighborhood. Instead of single-family dwellings, large twostory houses are being constructed, impacting the overall quality of the neighborhood. These facilities add traffic, limit privacy and degrade the environment, destroying mountain views and creating large concrete parking lots. The issue is not about students. Our block has four or five houses with university students. They are well–behaved and friendly to the full-time residents on the street. The neighborhood welcomes students and families who enjoy living in single-family dwellings. Downs are for the campus, and not for our neighborhood. The City of Tucson needs to protect the property rights of family-owned/occupied homes against the predatory developers who only have short-term interest in the neighborhood. Bill Jaap Resident of Jefferson Park and UA alumnus

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Driver runs over passenger’s good leg
A woman exited her golf cart on Nov. 16, and fell, injuring herself. As she was getting out, she placed her right foot onto the pavement between the golf cart and the curb. The woman’s left foot was previously broken and in a cast at this time. Before she had completely stepped out, the driver started going, causing the woman’s right foot and ankle to get squished between the curb and the passenger side of the golf cart’s rear wheel. The driver immediately drove the woman to UA Campus Health Service for treatment. The woman’s injury consisted of scrapes and abrasions on her right ankle as well as a swollen ankle. A University of Arizona Police Department officer took photos of her right foot, and UA Risk Management was advised of what had happened.
Hot rod ignites ethanol in beaker
A woman had a beaker of ethanol on Nov. 16, when it accidentally caused a small fire within the beaker while she was at the BioSciences West building. She said to a UAPD officer that at about 4:30 p.m., she was plating cells under the hood and placed a hot rod into a beaker of ethanol. The rod ignited the ethanol and started a fire. The woman said she put the fire out with an extinguisher. There was no damage to anything but the plastic beaker. No one in the room was hurt. Fire Safety was called right away, and they responded minutes later to recharge the fire extinguisher.
Befuddled, besotted bandit botches burglary
A man was arrested for theft and burglary of a means of transportation after an employee saw him try to steal a 2009 Joyner all-terrain vehicle from the Facilities Management Administration and Engine Shop on Nov. 15. A crew employee had seen the man enter through a pedestrian gate and walk to where the ATV was parked for repair. The man then sat on the ATV, turned it on and drove around in circles inside the small fenced area. He started driving toward the administrations office and pushed a concrete bench approximately two feet with the ATV. The man lodged the ATV against a light pole with a concrete base, got off the ATV, and left the area. The UAPD officer located a man matching the description leaning up against a crosswalk traffic pole. He had a little bit of blood on his hands and his clothes were dirty and disarrayed. He was trying to use his phone but seemed to be having difficulty. The officer told the man to turn around and placed him into handcuffs. The man asked the officer why he was being handcuffed. The officer explained that he matched the description of a suspect of a recent theft. The man told the officer that it could not have been him because “my stepfather just dropped me off.” A few seconds later, the man told the officer that he had just gotten off work. When the officer asked where he worked, he said he worked at the Saddle Ranch Chop House on Coyotes Boulevard. Then he told the officer that it was a steakhouse in Glendale, Ariz. The officer asked him what city he thought he was in. The man said he thought he was in Glendale or Peoria, Ariz., and continued making references to the Phoenix area throughout the entire time he spoke to the officer. The officer noticed an odor of alcohol coming from the man’s breath. The man also had problems balancing and could not walk in a straight line. His eyes were watery and bloodshot and his speech was slurred. When the officer asked if he had been drinking, the man denied having any alcohol. The officer brought witnesses who indicated he was the man who had tried to take the ATV. The man claimed he was not the person they wanted and he wanted to talk to his lawyer because police had violated his rights. The man was booked in Pima County Jail.

It’s just so much receivers, ingenious play-calling different.”
By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Oregon’s offense is unlike any offense in the country. They spread out defenses, move the ball on the ground and through the air, and aim to snap the ball with no less than 25 seconds on the play clock every down. According to Stoops, Oregon’s ability to revolutionize the way football is played starts with sophomore quarterback Darron Thomas. “Quarterbacks now have to be able to run the football and throw it,” Stoops said. “I think you have to have those to be successful. I think defenses are too good that you have to have enough variety to keep people off balance.” Oregon’s offense has no trouble with variety, as options are
endless in head coach Chip Kelly’s schemes. Arizona codefensive coordinator Greg Brown said the Ducks’ offense is “by far” the most innovative offense in college football history because of their endless options and up-tempo pace. “They can option off every single guy you’ve got, which leaves you with one-on-one tackles in space with big wide crevices, but take that and times it by 10 because you’re going at break-neck speed,” Brown said. “That’s what you’re dealing with.” Then add in Thomas’ ability to throw the ball and James’ ability to juke defenders out of STOOPS, page 10
prepare for main course Arizona eyes 4-0 start with Kansas looming By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
If the Arizona men’s basketball team was a high-end restaurant, Sean Miller would be the master chef brought in to clean up the mess left by the last cook. A year has passed, and the kitchen is just about spotless. In the first three games, Miller has stimulated everyone’s appetite with three quality appetizers, but now everyone is ready for the main course — Kansas. But before the entree is served, there is yet another appetizer as Bethune-Cookman visits McKale Center tonight at 6:30. The Wildcats have their first 3-0 start since the 2002-03 season and have been cooking up blow-outs, winning by an average of 32 points. Thus far, Arizona’s bench and Derrick Williams have been the most consistent pieces to the team, but Miller recognizes it’s still early in the season. “We’ve done a good job up until this point,” Miller said after Sunday’s 93-70 win over Northern Colorado. “I know there are much more challenges ahead, but I’m anxious to see our progression moving toward those challenges.” Though the challenges will come, Miller is happy to have cutlery that didn’t exist last season. This season, Miller has quality shooters in Brendon Lavender and Jordin HOOPS, page 10

Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas and running back LaMichael James are the face of Oregon’s lethal offensive attack that leads the nation in scoring. The Ducks’ endless options and up-tempo pace will give Arizona trouble when the Wildcats take on the nation’s top team in Eugene, Ore., on Friday.
How to stop Ducks’ offense
Arizona co-defensive coordinator Tim Kish breaks down Oregon By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The No. 1 Oregon Ducks are 10-0 this year, thanks largely to what has seemed like an unstoppable offense. The Ducks are averaging 50.7 points and 542 yards per game and have not lost a game in nearly 11 months. Despite the loss of
former quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, Oregon has continued its success under head coach Chip Kelly. The Oregon offense is now the model of efficiency. It’s up to the Arizona defense to find some way to stop it on Friday. Codefensive coordinator Tim Kish weighs in on how to slow down quarterback Darron Thomas and the Ducks.
If the signs with four different pictures featuring images like Scott Van Pelt’s mug, Lee Corso’s face and the state of Louisiana weren’t confusing enough, the Ducks also have a variety of plays they can run from multiple formations. Defending the option isn’t something that Arizona is foreign to,
but Oregon is sure to have something new up their sleeve.
“The good news is we’ve played (the option). You’ve still got forms of it in the pistol. You got forms of it with the triple we saw with The Citadel. We’ve had KISH, page 10
W-hoops keeps streak alive By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
The Arizona women’s basketball team extended its win streak to four for the first time since the 1999-2000 season with a 93-54 win over the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in McKale Center Monday. The Wildcats (4-0) continued their domination at home by forcing the Golden Lions (0-3) to play their uptempo style all game long. “I’m happy with the win, it certainly feels good to be 4-0 at this point,” head coach Niya Butts said. “We did a good job for about 30 minutes, but we still haven’t played a complete 40 minutes yet. But our team shared the ball very well today, 30 assists on 37 field goals, that’s pretty good, so we did a good job there.” Arizona led a relentless charge from the start of the game, running circles around a very winded Pine Bluff squad that eventually paved way for a 31-point Wildcat lead at the halftime buzzer. “I think we fed off the kids and their enthusiasm,” said Arizona
guard Brooke Jackson. “I think we pushed the ball in the first half, and that’s what we wanted to do.” Throughout the first few contests of the season, the Wildcats have had no trouble scoring, averaging 79 points per game to begin the season. Along with their ability to put the ball in the basket, the Wildcats’ rebounding has improved, thanks to the continual practice the coaching staff stresses every day. Arizona has managed to win the rebounding battle in every game since the start of the season. “The first half we rebounded like machines, (but in the) second half not so much,” Butts said. “We gave up 14 offensive rebounds, we have to certainly do a better job of that going into Cancun.” The Wildcats will spend Thanksgiving in Cancun, Mexico, preparing for the Cancun Thanksgiving Classic, when they face their toughest opponent yet, the No. 8 Texas A&M Aggies. “We’re going have a tough set of games,” Butts said. “We can’t have those spells where we just kind of go through the motions.”

Olson, NCAA still at odds Former Arizona head coach Lute Olson took a shot last week at the already-concluded NCAA investigation upon the men’s basketball team. Calling the investigation “a farce,” Olson told RadioExiles. com that the NCAA investigators “had to satisfy their people in Indianapolis by coming up with something.” The NCAA found the basketball program guilty of four major infractions under Olson and announced final penalties, including loss of scholarship, earlier this year. “As far as I’m concerned, that situation is not over yet because they deserve to have something thrown back at ‘em,” Olson said. “But the university was concerned that if you challenged them, then they’ll hit you harder. And now that I’m no longer involved with that, I can tell the truth as opposed to all the fabrications of the truth that the NCAA gave out.” The NCAA responded Friday, releasing a letter on their website: “Lute Olson’s recent comments regarding the NCAA’s investigation into his basketball program are inaccurate and misleading,” the letter said. “When the enforcement staff receives reliable information that a major rules violation has occurred, it must investigate and gather facts.” The letter also said Olson declined multiple attempts for investigators to question him on the matter. It also claimed he refused to attend two official meetings in which he had the opportunity to state his case. Olson told ESPN in 2008 that he believed the main infraction — regarding a letter with his signature that violated NCAA rules — was “my error.” — Kevin Zimmerman

Head coach Sean Miller came to an Arizona basketball program with a lot of uncertainty. But in his second year, Miller has the Wildcats at 3-0 going into their final game before heading to the iBN Las Vegas Invitational.

their shoes and, thus, you have the nation’s top offense and No. 1 team. Brown said the defense has been practicing with their backs to the play, yards away from the line of scrimmage, and when the offense is ready, they react and scramble into position. Although they can simulate it as much as they want, the Wildcats must stop it on the field. When asked how to stop the Ducks’ innovative offense, Brown said with a smile, “13 guys.” “We’re putting in a petition to the NCAA to see if they’ll go for it,” Brown joked.

Wade starting at corner
Arizona junior cornerback Trevin Wade will be back starting against the Ducks after a one-week hiatus from the starting lineup. Freshman Shaquille Richardson started at corner against the Trojans, but Wade has regained his starting spot. “He’s got a great attitude. He’s come out; he’s practicing hard; he’s into it; he’s going 100 miles an hour; (he’s) very helpful with Shaquille (Richardson), Jonathan McKnight and the young guys,” Brown said of Wade during practice lately. “He’s done a great job. My hat’s off to him. His back was against the wall, and he’s come out swinging.”
Stoops said, “Everybody’s healthy,” meaning quarterback Matt Scott will return from a wrist injury and running back Nic Grigsby will also be ready after struggling through an ankle injury. Scott missed the last two games, while Grigsby’s carried the ball only six times in the last three games. Foles is expected to start yet again, but Stoops said that Scott will “be an option.”
Stoops prefers holiday games
While it certainly isn’t ideal to play the day after Thanksgiving, Stoops actually prefers the Wildcats’ Friday game in Eugene, Ore. “It may seem odd, but it will probably be easier this way,” he said. “A lot less distractions because this is the only thing we can do for our players on Thursday and as we prepare for a game on Friday.” The Wildcats will have Thanksgiving lunch at 12:30 Thursday before heading to Eugene. Playing the day after Thanksgiving may not be an issue, but Oregon’s Autzen Stadium and the low of 38 degrees they’re expecting to face certainly poses challenges for the Wildcats. Stoops said the weather is only a “mind game,” but Autzen Stadium is as loud as it gets in college football. “The atmosphere over there is crazy,” Grigsby said. “It’s rocking. You can’t hear anything. My sophomore year we went there, and I couldn’t even hear the ball snapping.”
continued from page 6
Wildcats’ depth helping defensively
Mayes coming off the bench. Junior college transfer Jesse Perry has been a relentless offensive rebounder, along with a confident Kyryl Natyazhko and ever-so physical Kevin Parrom to complete the second unit. “That’s really the identity of this year’s team. We’re going to do it by numbers,” Miller said. “We got to do it with a lot of unselfishness and a lot of moving parts.” In the last two games, Miller has substituted his entire starting line-up at the 15-minute mark in the first half, which has reduced the minutes of all his players. It’s allowed the Wildcats to play allout defense without worrying about conserving energy, which has, in turn, resulted in blow-out victories. “When you’re not playing for long lengths of time, you can really give great effort,” Miller said. “We’re trying to get that intensity throughout the whole game by playing a number of guys.”
KISH continued from page 6
“We’re going to have a team of three or four guys coming in that don’t start the game but are going to play a lot,” he added. “That’s what’s going to make Arizona the best this year.” Though the bench has been the secret ingredient, the main factor for Arizona’s hot start has been Williams. Williams has averaged a team leading 19 points and nine rebounds while shooting 80 percent from the field and scoring the majority of his points on dunks and lay-ups. Williams knows that teams will begin to adjust to his play, which means he will have to find his teammates. “I’m going to be surprised if teams start trapping me like UCLA did in the Pac-10 tournament,” Williams said. “If I do get trapped, I’m going to have to learn to pass the ball to the open man.” Though Williams admitted after Sunday’s game that the team is looking forward to Kansas, he said

On the surface it might seem strange that alcohol is categorized as a depressant. How can something that makes you feel so good be a depressant? First, let’s not confuse a depressant drug with your mood or being depressed. Depressants are only one of several drug categories that include stimulants, hallucinogens, opiates, inhalants, etc. Also, a depressant drug is not to be confused with an anti-depressant medication. They are two different things. A depressant substance is one that slows down or inhibits the functions of the central nervous system (CNS); basically slowing down brain activity that in turn relaxes your body and mind. In other words, they produce a depressant effect on the central nervous system by inhibiting the brain’s ability to produce stimulating chemicals. Drinking initially feels good, but as more alcohol is added to the CNS it gives a signal to the brain to relax even more. It becomes a continuum of diminishing coordination, slurring speech, cognitive and judgment impairments, etc. Most people stop drinking here. If not, more alcohol signals the CNS to depress your heart and breathing rates to a point that, without intervention, can lead to alcohol poisoning. Basically the depressant effect is all about dosage; the more consumed, the greater the effect.
The average time for one of Oregon’s scoring drives is under two minutes. That means that no lead is ever safe against the Ducks (see Stanford’s loss on Oct. 2). With running back LaMichael James in the backfield and quarterback Thomas under center, the Ducks have the ability to score quickly and often.
“I think it’s part of their M.O., is that they want to get as many plays as they possibly can. But again, their drives are usually short, so it’s not like teams are out there forever. They’re out there quickly and they’re having to line up quickly, and if you don’t just let yourself get flustered about it, you should be OK.”
Quarterback Darron Thomas:
Although Masoli left the Ducks in a flurry of scandal, sophomore
The Red Cup Q&A is written by Lynn Reyes, LCSW, LSAC, David Salafsky, MPH, Lee Ann Hamilton, MA, CHES, and Spencer Gorin, RN, in the Health Promotion and Preventive Services (HPPS) department of the UA Campus Health Service.
“Thomas is his own unique self. I think he’s really developed quickly in a year’s period of time without the experience (Jeremiah) Masoli had, so I like his demeanor. I like the way he’s running to offense right now. He seems very confident in running it. He’s a good athlete just like Masoli is. He’s definitely somebody that we have to account for in the offense.”
Getting pressure on Thomas:
Kish admitted that the Wildcats may have a tough time getting to Thomas this week, but don’t expect them to stop trying. Arizona has the Pac-10’s sack leader in Ricky Elmore, but Oregon is second in conference in
“Our main goal is to stop each play and keep it to a minimum. We feel like if we can make them have to earn their way down the field and not give up the big plays, we’re going to be right where we need to be.”
Stopping the Ducks’ offense:
The Wildcats have shown that their defense can hang with a team throughout a game, like it did against Iowa, but it will really have to slow down the run and defend the option to keep Thomas, James and the rest of the Duck offense out of the end zone.
“You’ve got to account for everybody in their offense, so that’s where you start. If you can figure that out and how they utilize their personnel, that’s how you really start with a defensive scheme starting with these guys. From a defensive perspective, we have to make them earn everything and don’t give them anything cheap.”

quarterback Thomas has grown into his role despite the lack of experience. And with fellow quarterback Nate Costa done for the year, the burden of being the quarterback of the nation’s No. 1 team falls squarely on his shoulders. Under Thomas’ direction, Oregon is the No. 1 team in scoring offense, rushing offense and total offense.

Paradoxically, there is a misconception that alcohol is a stimulant because of the way the depressant part of alcohol disinhibits brain functions, leading drinkers to do things they wouldn’t normally do sober. For example, too much alcohol can lead you to say embarrassing things, jump in the Old Main fountain (naked), get into sexual situations that are regretted after the fact, or other risk-taking behaviors. While it may seem odd to lump alcohol with the other depressants (tranquilizers, sleeping aids, barbiturates), they all share the characteristic of sedating effects.

some option experience already this year. This is a little more unique. It’s a lot faster pace, so that will be the thing that we need to address.”
Why is alcohol a depressant drug?
Time of possession
Bethune-Cookman will not be overlooked tonight. “We have a good game coming up (tonight),” Williams. “We’re taking one game at a time. Coach told us they were ranked preseason No. 2 in their conference, so it’s another good team.” Though the Wildcats have been impressive against inferior opponents, not everyone has been enamored with the early-season dominance of the Wildcats. McKale Center has been scattered with empty seats, more notably the student section. When Miller was asked if he could figure out why attendance has been so low, he said, “I can only show up and coach the team and hope that it gets better.” But he did suggest how attendance could improve. “I know people like to see good teams,” he said. “Hopefully, we’ll become one.”
