Curator warns people to be cautious when buying art

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.”

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.”

Some names released unintentionally

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-

more Matthew Zukerman said he would assume that people’s names, drivers license numbers, addresses and cell phone numbers would be on a police report automatically. He said he finds the guidelines that UAPD follows to be straightforward and fair but was surprised that more personal information is not included in reports.

So you know Next time you are arrested for drinking underage or for drug possession, you might want to consider that the following information is available for anyone to look at before telling friends it’s your police beat item: • Name • Phone number • Relation to the school • Address • Officer’s perspective • Height • Weight • Ethnicity • BAC • Fraternity/sorority house (unless it is a sexual assault) • Reporting party • Type of alcohol or drug
