New forum demystifies FAFSA By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ASUA and the UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid have partnered to sponsor free financial aid forums for students, to provide more access to alternative means of financial aid. “The more requests the Arizona Legislature sees for FAFSA forms and for financial aid, the more they see that it is an issue for students paying for college,” said Associated Students

of the University of Arizona Sen. Chad Travis at an ASUA Senate meeting on Oct. 27. The idea for the financial aid forums started last year as collaboration between ASUA and the financial aid office, according to Rebekah H. Salcedo, student scholarship services coordinator at the UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. “There’s a lot of students that think they can’t apply for financial aid because of their financial situation, but they never applied or even filled out their

FAFSA form,” said ASUA Sen. Mary Myles. Myles became involved in the project last year after then-ASUA President Chris Nagata and Arizona Students’ Association members visited the UA Freshman Class Council, of which Myles was a member. This semester, the financial aid workshops will focus on helping students fill out scholarship and FAFSA forms. Fliers for free financial workshops advertised the free forums, and started to aid students

in filling out their financial aid forms such as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Myles added, “So much financial aid is wasted at the end of the year” and starting the forums earlier into the school year this time should help alleviate that waste. Strong student attendance last year encouraged the financial aid office to hold similar forums this year. Salcedo , noted the forums’ importance in serving “as a way to remind students to fill out their FAFSA

Giffords declared winner

Democrat comes out ahead after close race By Yael Schusterman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The suspense ended Friday as U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was announced the winner in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District. According to the election summary report from the Pima County Elections Department, Giffords received 49.9 percent of the vote to Jesse Kelly’s 46.1 percent. The Associated Press reported Kelly’s response to his loss. “I would like to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my wife Aubrey, who has been by my side this entire time, my family, for their unwavering support and the thousands of warriors who fought with me in this campaign,” he said.

Children wait in line to choose their decorations for accessorizing their homemade angel wings for the Procession of Little Angels at Armory Park on Saturday. The procession was geared toward helping children embrace life and death.

‘Little Angels’ walk for the dead By Rebecca Rillos ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Richard Davis held up a photograph of a smiling, young boy. “This is Drew at age 3,” he said. “And that photo there is his senior picture.” Drew Davis, a graduate of Catalina Foothills High School and a junior at UA, died July 9, 2006. He was 22 years old. His parents, Richard and Kathy Davis, created a memorial altar for him on Saturday in Armory Park at the annual Personal Altar Vigil and Procession of Little Angels.

Their altar was one of many created by community members in remembrance of loved ones who have passed away. “Whatever was important to Drew, I brought,” Kathy Davis said as she set small glass bowls of Skittles and mint Lifesavers on the table. “These were his favorite candies.” A few feet away from the altars, children prepared for the Procession of Little Angels, a community parade around downtown Tucson. The procession and vigil are both projects of Many Mouths One Stomach, a Tucson-based organization that

coordinates many artistic and cultural events. Children played music with volunteer musicians, decorated sugar skulls and painted cardboard wings that they could wear in the procession. Jhon Sanders, one of the event directors for the Procession of Little Angels and member of Many Mouths One Stomach, said the procession started in 2006 in response to community feedback. “People wanted something more family-oriented that connected with the All Souls Procession,” Sanders said. “It is

quite different from the All Souls Procession because Procession of Little Angels is a kid-driven event. We let kid energy dictate what happens there.” The purpose of the Procession of Little Angels is to provide families with the opportunity to open the discussion of mortality with their children, Sanders said. “We create the rough framework, they decide how to do it,” Sanders said. “We don’t impose, we just provide the opportunity.” Jane Beiser heard about the

UA office makes 3D projects a reality By Lívia Fialho ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT For students wanting broader views, the UA’s Virtual Reality Annex may be the place to go to make assignments more visually appealing. The UA Office of Instruction and Assessment’s free service for students, faculty and staff allows for the production of panoramas and image slides that imitate real life. Gary Mackender, a senior information technology support analyst, has done panoramas of entire environments such as the Optical Sciences building and parts of the UA Mall. Mackender believes there is no other virtual reality lab in any other campus. Virtual reality technology


surfaced in 2000, only one year before the UA founded its lab. Mackender, who is also a photographer, heads the virtual reality section of the office, which started in 2001. “Documenting some of the work that’s going on around the university,” is part of the goal of the virtual reality, he said. Although the annex doesn’t get much publicity, media arts and architecture students are usually the ones who look for the services, Mackender said. He recently finished a montage of a building’s model for an architecture student and says most of the work he does is to aid project visualization. Virtual reality can be used to showcase museum collections, or to show objects for large VIRTUAL REALITY, page 12

Jamie Calvert

pre-nursing junior How many times a day do you get referred to as Lady Gaga with your hairstyle being the way it is? Oh my gosh, you don’t even want to know. At parties, at school, at bars all I hear is, “Hey! Lady Gaga!” Well, it’s a great conversation starter. Yeah, but I’m not her so people get disappointed. Wait, you aren’t? (Laughs) No, my name is Jamie. But yeah, I don’t really mind ‘cause I love Gaga, but it gets annoying. Like OK, I have bleach blonde hair with bangs, get over it. You are probably the only person on this campus I have seen with hair of that nature. Yeah, it’s pretty hard to miss, I guess. Better to be hard to miss than just another in the crowd, right? Completely agree, you gotta’ take advantage and be different while you are young and aren’t considered an idiot, before you get too old. Are you afraid of becoming old? Well, I recently turned 21 and it has been the best experience ever, but now that I am 21, I don’t really have any ages to look forward to. I feel like as I get older every year, I am going to keep feeling more pressure to be doing things I thought I would be doing when I was younger. Like what? I don’t know I mean like with getting married, getting a job, having kids, all that stuff. I guess I am just nervous I’m going to be like 30 years old with no kids, no job, no man and like tons of cats. Would you rather be extremely broke and living on coupons and Ramen while being in love with your fiance or boyfriend, whatever, or be riding around town in a 7 series BMW with tons of money and no fiance? That’s a tough question. But money doesn’t buy happiness, so I’d rather be happy and in love, as corny was that sounds. But seriously, I am not a material girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping and new stuff, but that doesn’t make me happy. Everyone is always happier when they have good friends, and my friends and people I love are the reason I love life so much. Agreed. Are you excited for basketball season? Oh, favorite time of year. The football games have been amazing. I haven’t made it through a whole game this year, but basketball is a different story. The music and all the lights just get me so pumped in McKale. — Caroline Nachazel

Scientists look to recreate Big Bang

Talk about a trip back in time. Scientists have always wondered what it was like at the moment of and immediately after the creation of the universe, generally known as the Big Bang. Soon, they may find out. By using the world’s biggest and most powerful particle accelerator — the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC — researchers will attempt to create, essentially, mini-Big Bangs that will help them study matter that once existed almost 14 billion years ago. OK, if this all sounds a bit heady — especially for those of us who wonder how we’re going to get by until the next paycheck comes around — let’s

break this down a bit. First — and we might as well start at the beginning — the Big Bang theory (apart from being a very funny TV sitcom) suggests that the universe was created 13.7 billion years ago when extremely high energy caused a rapid expansion of what is theorized was a very hot and dense state, and it continues to expand outward. The LHC was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, at its laboratory near the FrenchSwiss border. The machine sits in a 17-milein-circumference underground tunnel near Geneva and is used to

study what the known universe is made of and why it works the way it does. Fundamental particles are made to collide inside the accelerators, and this helps scientists understand more about the laws of nature. Researchers hope that by colliding lead ions inside the huge LHC “Big Bang machine,” they’ll be able to recreate what the young universe looked like. CERN spokesman James Gillies told the BBC that when the universe was created, scientists believe, physical matter was different from the matter we see and feel around us now. —AOL News

By Miranda Butler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT This weekend, the Tucson Celtic Festival set up camp at Rillito Raceway Park . This annual event seeks to “celebrate the heritage and culture of Ireland, Scotland and Wales, just as it’s been done for centuries.” And how do they celebrate? You may assume that the Celtic festival would feature kilts, bagpipes, dancing and drinking — and you’d be absolutely right. There was a massive amount of plaid all around, as well as many men in kilts. There were beer mugs and shot glasses for sale, and guests could even partake in a Scotch whisky tasting. But the Tucson Celtic Festival also offered many more meaningful experiences to guests this year, and upon arriving, its authenticity is immediately apparent. From the first moment that guests approached the park, it was easy to hear the sounds of Celtic music. A group of bagpipers marched through the festival, dressed in the full traditional ensemble, and wellknown Celtic bands also took turns performing on a stage. Merchants with genuine Celtic goods were spread all across the grounds; their booths showcased tapestries, clothing, artwork and weaponry. You could buy your own kilt, select hand-crafted knives and swords or purchase a real velvet scarf. The merchants were friendly and knowledgeable, and they seemed truly invested in celebrating Celtic culture. In addition, the collaboration of Irish and Scottish clans added to the authenticity of the festival. Around the perimeter of the event were various clans of families who could trace their Celtic roots to as far back as the 10th century. Similarly, something I didn’t expect to see at the Celtic festival (or ever) was the Scottish Highland Games competition. Burly men in kilts participated in events such as sheaf toss — where competitors use pitchforks to toss giant bags of sticks over a barrier — and stone put, which looked similar to shot-put but with giant stones attached to chains. As barbaric as these events may sound, they were captivating and exciting to watch. In the end, these festivities celebrated Celtic culture beyond what I had expected. The Tucson Celtic festival allowed everyone to celebrate Ireland, Scotland and Wales — whether they were actually Celtic or not.

Filter your foul Facebooking Brett Haupt ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT


ix years before Krystal Ball — the Democratic challenger for a congressional seat in Virginia — ran for office, she was at a party. She was wearing a Santa hat, sexy attire and holding a sex toy. Pictures were taken. Nobody thought twice about it. But six years later, she lost (64 percent to 35 percent) to Republican Robert Wittman, in part because these pictures surfaced during her campaign. The pictures that undid Ball are relatively tame compared to some that many of us have on our Facebook pages. Whether you plan on being a politician or don’t think pictures of you could ever harm your reputation, you must consider the consequences just one picture can have on your career. If I’m an employer and you’re looking for a job, you’d better watch those photos posted of you passed out on the hood of your car. If I’m a judge and you’re in my courtroom, you’d better hope you didn’t post anything incriminating. If I’m your grandmother and I just got a Facebook profile, you’d better pray the first thing I see isn’t a picture of you flipping off the camera as you piss on a police car. In the past couple of years, social media has evolved far beyond its original purpose. Facebook and other sites now double as a character reference, a court witness, a provider of incriminating evidence and an employee selector. In the last year, Twitter has been the source of a wide variety of controversial situations, ranging from tweets being the cause for a mistrial, to the incriminating postings from a Rutgers University freshman related to his roommate’s sexual orientation. One quick look into your online life — Facebook, Twitter, MySpace or any other social networking site — can instantly and quite often unfairly paint you as a rogue citizen. It’s up to you to not let that happen. So everybody, have some sense, please. Objective number one: Crank up those privacy settings. Don’t think any number of people aren’t looking at your profile, going through your posting history and pictures to find something they don’t like, something that would eliminate you from what they are looking for, something that could land you in jail if you find yourself on the wrong side of the courtroom. Objective number two: Don’t post, photograph or be associated with anything that your grandma, my grandma and everybody’s great grandparents wouldn’t approve of. For our purposes, let us assume that these grandparents are the old school, serious, no messing around type. Objective number three: If you happen to do something that you shouldn’t be doing, like marijuana, cocaine or stealing a police vehicle, do yourself the favor of not bragging about it on Facebook via images and status updates. The quickest way to wipe that smirk off your face is to share it with the whole world, including the authorities. As we leave college and move onto bigger forums, greater risk is naturally involved with troubling online activity. Do not underestimate the power the Internet has to instantly change perceptions of once-respected people. If you happen to upset someone, don’t be surprised if a Craigslist ad pops up in your name soliciting prostitution. The Web is as much your enemy’s best weapon as it is your friend; tread carefully. Such repercussions abound and are often unknown by many of us in the ever-evolving social media dynamic within our society. As new as these technologies are, so is our naiveté for proper use and protocol with these new tools of communication. With every advance comes opportunity, not only for greater communication and access, but for greater consequence to those who use it irresponsibly.

The red folks are coming Storm Byrd ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT


wo days after Democrat Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, the front page of the Albuquerque Journal (the local newspaper of my hometown) showed a man purchasing rifles and ammunition in preparation for what he and many others believed would be a pseudo-apocalyptic world in which the “Second Amendment repealing” and “socialist Nazi” president would rule. Of course, none of the fearful had the crystal ball to foresee the surge of the Tea Party or “mama grizzlies” that would put Republicans in their current position of controlling the U.S. House of Representatives. Now, as Republicans soak in their victory, Democrats are seemingly unfazed. The calm, almost emotionally unresponsive, President Obama has made several collected speeches in response to the results of this election, but he and many Democratic supporters don’t seem to be overly concerned. With the exception of the occasional Facebook post, there haven’t been any cries of Democrats discussing plans to flee to Canada, and it seems there just aren’t any zealous Democrats running to Planned Parenthood for an abortion with bong and Sierra Club membership in hand. As Republicans look down upon their Democratic opposition from a self-assumed “pedestal of victory,” it’s important to keep in mind exactly what was accomplished. Yes, most of the Americans who voted in the midterm election chose Republicans. But as any

Bipartisanship: It may be for wimps and Communists, but it certainly isn’t for Republicans. Just days after gaining control of the House and severely cutting the Democratic majority in the Senate, Republican leaders have proven loathe to consider cooperation. Rep. Eric Cantor has said the question is not whether Obama is willing to work with Republicans but, “Are we willing to work with him?” Score one for progress.

Republicans: The conservative “tide” so many had been talking about came to pass on Tuesday, when Republicans swept control of the House of Representatives by gaining more than 60 seats, the largest single party swing in more than 60 years. Republican officials are now setting their sights on balancing the national budget by cutting further stimulus spending and repealing last year’s health-care bill.

World’s mean age: Eugenie Blanchard, a French-Caribbean woman widely considered to be the world’s oldest person, died last Thursday at the robust age of 114. There is another woman, Antisa Khvichava of the Republic of Georgia, who claims to be 130 years old, though her age cannot be accurately determined. Unconfirmed reports say Methuselah remains duly unimpressed.

Monies for nunneries: The School Sisters of Notre Dame, a group of nuns, recently sold an extremely rare T206 Honus Wagner baseball card for $262,900. There are only 50 to 60 of this card in existence and a same card in nearmint condition sold for $2.8 million in 2007. $220,000 of the winning bid will be paid to the nuns. Habits and crucifixes for everyone.

Punctual iPhone users: Due to a glitch in the iPhone’s alarm clock application, the phone will not automatically recognize the national switch to the daylight saving time. Apple CEO Steve Jobs was reluctant to comment on the issue, saying anyone who woke up late as a result was simply not sleeping right to begin with.

People sick of cilantro: Trader Joe’s has announced a recall of some products containing cilantro after concerns the herb may be infected with salmonella. Affected items include cilantro dressing, spicy peanut vinaigrette and cilantro pecan dip. It’s pretty clear they made the right decision to recall these products; I feel ill just thinking about them.

The Daily Wildcat editorial policy

political science major will tell you, presidential elections have a much higher turnout than midterms, so let’s not get too carried away about how well Republicans will do in the future. There are still many people out there who are apathetic now, but will tune in when the real race begins for the White House. Republicans will have to find a way to make those voters sympathetic toward their ideology. Secondly, Republicans took back the weaker chamber of Congress. The House, being based on proportional representation, was outlined to have less power, so as to appease the small states into feeling some comfort with the blueprint of Congress during the drafting of the U.S. Constitution. Nonetheless, a victory is a victory for Republicans, so here’s to you on that one, weaker house or not. Third, and going along with the first point, Republicans had better remember the Democrats’ base. While often unreliable and disorganized, young voters are highly anxious to be a part of something revolutionary (see 2008 presidential election). If Republicans can find a way to make something historic out of the 2012 presidential election, then they can significantly swing the youth against the Democrats. Remember, though, that young voters tend to be Democrats. Although many choose to classify themselves as “independent” so that they may be different for difference’s sake, they still largely vote blue. Young voters are a valuable foundation if a party can get their

support. In 2008, the youth vote accounted for 51 percent of the overall turnout. Don’t forget the minorities either. Often disregarded by Republicans, minority voters came out in larger numbers than ever when contributing to the overall voter total in 2008. Twenty-two percent of voters in 2008 were either Hispanic or black; put another black candidate on the ballot and it could be hard to steal that demographic away for the Republicans. To say that Republicans are truly “back with a vengeance” is a bit of an overstatement. The war is not over, Republicans; you’ve still got to do something this time. Now that you’ve got control of one chamber, you can’t just sit back and filibuster every bill and delay progress any more. It may sound weird, but you’ve actually got to contribute to the political process in a meaningful way this go around. While respects must be paid to the brilliant political strategy that got you here — the ol’ “don’t agree on anything so that the opposition comes off as a tyrannical majority” ploy — you still have to come through this time. You sat on the bench and allowed Democrats to bargain and deal with one another to force their agenda through, but now it’s time to take the field and see if you can actually work cohesively together.

She and her sister created an altar that represented all of their family who had passed, particularly their mother and father, Beiser said. “My children are going to come later in the day and there are probably a few things here even they haven’t heard. We tried to put a lot of stories and history into the altar,” Willett said. Nicole Zwickl attended the procession to watch her niece in the parade, as well as honor her grandfather with an altar her family had prepared. “I like all the activities they have for the kids. It is very inviting and everyone here is so friendly,” Zwickl said. Stories That Soar, a Tucson literacy and performing arts program, teamed up with Tucson Circus Arts to perform original stories written by children about their experiences with death as the final activity before the procession.

Angels on stilts from Tucson Circus Arts led the children, bearing their personalized wings, on a procession around the downtown public square to the finale performance. The procession attracted hundreds of people, including passersby like Ron Koeppel. Koeppel said he saw a flyer for the event that morning and decided to stop by. “I just think that this is a great way to honor the dead and acknowledge death,” Koeppel said. The altars were on display until 11 p.m. for public viewing. “The Personal Altars Vigil is a very good reminder of mortality and the fact that we all live and we all die,” Sanders said. The Davis’ said that many people had come up to their altar and asked about it. “It’s a way to heal. People who come to the procession see our altar and ask about Drew and it helps,” Davis said, “When you get to start talking about it, it gets a little easier.”

Law college fraudster vacations at Knott’s Berry Farm

A University of Arizona purchasing card was issued to the James E. Rogers College of Law on Oct. 30. The card number was then used to make two fraudulent online purchases totaling $281 and $327 at Knott’s Berry Farm in California. A UAPD officer went to the College of Law on suspected fraudulent charges on Tuesday. Chase Bank has been advised of the fraud and cancelled the card, and workers said the card gets used so frequently that it is hard to see where the number got stolen. There are no leads as to who committed the fraud.

‘You don’t want to piss me off!’

UAPD officers responded to the women’s locker room of the Student Recreation Center where a man had walked in and refused to leave. He rushed quickly past security saying, “I’m with construction.” The police were told the man had slapped a woman on the buttocks in the women’s locker room. On surveillance video, he stood next to the girl while she placed her purse in a locker, shut the door and said, “You got caught, girlfriend.” The student identified the man in the video as the one who had assaulted her. She rushed out of the room when she felt “violated and shocked” by the unwelcomed touching before she reported the incident to employees and began her exercise bike workout. She noticed the man was working out as well and chose to end her workout. When employees tried to remove the man from the locker room, he responded “You don’t want to piss me off!” Officers searched the locker room and found the man hiding in the showers alone. They announced “Police” and directed the man to exit the shower. The man feigned deafness, pointing to his ear as if he couldn’t hear and refused to speak. After police told him they knew he could speak, he began answering questions, but only if looking directly at officers, saying he was a lip reader. The man was placed under arrest by the officers. The man had been flagged by police as mentally unstable in previous incidents and issued him a six-month exclusionary order after his meeting with police.

Narcotics, condoms and cologne

Officers reported to Park Avenue and Sixth Street on Nov. 1 at 11:14 p.m. after a community service officer saw two men running away from Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage. The officer noticed the smell of marijuana at the scene. One man wearing dark clothing and a black backpack ran down Sixth Street, then through Life Science South and Bio Sciences West buildings. After two verbal warnings to stop running, the man stopped. The black backpack the man had been wearing earlier was found in the bed of a UA service truck and half of a metal grinder was found in the entryway of lot 5078. The backpack contained a pill bottle full of 2.5 grams of a substance that looked like marijuana, three Magnum condoms in gold wrappers, a quarter-full bottle of Givenchy cologne, a half-full Dasani water bottle, rolling papers, a bamboo cigarette roller and an HBI humidifier. A baggie left at the parking garage seemed to have marijuana left inside. The man was arrested and booked into Pima County Jail. The baggie found on top of Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage, the half-metal grinder, and the backpack’s contents were entered as evidence.

Standford 42, Arizona 17

Wildcats exposed in loss to Stanford

Offense, defense not as good as we thought

COMMENTARY BY Tim Kosch Sports editor

Nhat V. Meyer/San Jose Mercury News

Stanford running back Anthony Wilkerson, 32, tries to evade Arizona’s Shaquille Richardson, 5, in the second quarter at Stanford Stadium in Stanford, Calif., on Saturday. Stanford turned Arizona on its side in the 42-17 loss.

Run out of Luck

Inability to stop Stanford offense dooms Arizona, Rose Bowl chances By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT STANFORD, Calif. — On the first play of the fourth quarter, the Arizona Wildcats were faced with a fourthand-four at Stanford’s 5-yard line. Quarterback Nick Foles’ pass was deflected and hit the ground, well short of intended receiver Juron Criner. That’s the kind of night the thenNo. 15 Wildcats had in their 42-17 loss to No. 13 Stanford. “(We) didn’t execute real well overall,” said co-offensive coordinator Seth Littrell. “It obviously showed on the scoreboard. Dropping balls, quarterback getting hit, not making great decisions there a couple of times. When you do that against a good football team it’s going to magnify a little bit and show even more.” The return of quarterback Nick

Foles from a right kneecap dislocation was highly anticipated, but turned out to be highly disappointing. Foles finished with 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The offense lacked rhythm in the first half of the game, stalling on nearly every drive, thanks to dropped balls and penalties. Missed opportunities were the theme of the night for Arizona (72, 4-2 Pacific 10 Conference), who had three drives stall inside the red zone early in the game. “You’ve got to finish drives, and that’s what we really didn’t do well tonight,” Littrell said. “I thought we moved the ball well inside the 20s (yard lines) but couldn’t finish the drives.” Arizona threatened to score at the end of the first half, but an intentional grounding penalty pushed the Wildcats FOOTBALL, page 10

Hoops not quite ready

Offense firing on all cylinders The Arizona women’s basketball team made a statement on Sunday with a 109-62 win over Western State College: the Wildcats can’t wait to show off their new offense in a game that counts in the standings. “Offensively, it went real good tonight,” said sophomore guard Davellyn Whyte after scoring 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting. “When teams play a zone, it’s hard because we have shooters on the outside. Then if they guard (the shooters), then the inside’s open. We just got inside tonight after we started shooting.” Arizona’s new up-tempo offense was in full display against Western State, and junior guard Shanita Arnold, a transfer from Arkansas in her first year at Arizona, was leading the attack. “With this team, you’ve got to know when to push it and when to slow it down,” Arnold said. “We’ve just got to know when to push the tempo and when to pull it back.” Getting a feel for which tempo to use might take a while with

Final 42 17

STANFORD, Calif. — In a matchup between a top-10 offense and a top-10 defense, something had to give. The Wildcats defense gave. In a matchup between two top 15 teams nationally — each with 7-1 overall records and 4-1 records in the Pacific 10 Conference — vying for a spot in the Rose Bowl, someone had to lose. The Wildcats didn’t just lose, they had their hearts ripped out. The defense that had been praised throughout the season for its dominance and athleticism was annihilated by Stanford and their all-world quarterback Andrew Luck. Nick Foles, making his first start since coming back from a knee injury, looked like he was making the first start of his career. The Wildcats and Cardinal squared off in a game that pitted two teams that were suffering through the lowest of the lows just a few years ago before making leaps forward in the past few seasons, but Stanford showed it was much closer to being “there” than its counterpart from Tucson. In the bigger picture, though, Arizona didn’t just drop to third place in the Pac-10 and lose any

Sophomore Derrick Williams goes up with authority in Arizona’s 70-59 win over Augustana College yesterday at McKale Center. Despite the win, the Wildcats admitted after the game that there is room for improvement as the team gets closer to the start of the regular season.

Arizona head basketball coach Sean Miller said he wasn’t going to talk about the real negatives or the real positives in last night’s 70-59 exhibition win against Augustana College. But there were certainly plenty of both, and it wasn’t always pretty. “We weren’t able to break it open because we weren’t shooting,” Miller said. “We were either throwing the ball to them or out of bounds.” Though Arizona struggled to get a good rhythm throughout the game, players were just happy to get back to playing against someone other than themselves. “I thought we did all right, but we could have done better,” said sophomore forward Derrick Williams. “It’s been a long time since we actually played somebody. It was an exhibition game, but at the same time it was better than practicing against ourselves.” Arizona never trailed in the game but allowed their Division-II opponent to stick around throughout the game. Each time it appeared the Wildcats could blow the game open, a turnover or missed shot enabled the Vikings to stay in the game. Though Miller wasn’t particularly pleased with poor free throw shooting (22-for-35) and turnovers (15), he gave Augustana credit for the game being close throughout. “They provided us with what we wanted them to do,” he said. “They’re well coached, disciplined team with a couple of guards who could play in a lot of Division-I programs. “We chose to play a team that executed, and we knew the way they screened it would be a good test for us, and they were.” One of those guards was sophomore guard Cameron McCaffrey who led the way for the Vikings with 20 points. Arizona’s aggression allowed it to reach the foul line, but the end result wasn’t always there — the HOOPS, page 8

Difficult season ends in back-to-back home losses By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Arizona soccer’s attempt to end its season on a high note fell short this weekend when the Wildcats lost 1-0 against UCLA on Friday night, and 5-0 to No. 17 Southern California on Sunday. It looked like the Wildcats might take the match from the Bruins on Friday, playing to a scoreless tie into the last 10 minutes of regulation. In the 84th minute, UCLA (12-7-1, 5-4 Pacific 10 Conference) dashed Arizona’s shot at its second conference win when junior Sydney Leroux sent the game winner into the back of the net. “We played a quality game, but had one lapse late in the game that cost us,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “We had quite a few chances in the first half, we just were unable to connect.” The Wildcats (5-13-2, 1-8) said goodbye to their three seniors before playing the Trojans on Sunday. Macke Mutz, Becky Barry and Alex Davis joined their families on the field before playing in front of the Arizona faithful one last time. “There are so many memories,” Mutz said. “We’ve been through a lot in the five years, and you just see how much you grow and realize how many friends you made.” Unfortunately, Arizona couldn’t bid their seniors adieu with a win after falling behind quickly to the Trojans (12-5-3, 5-3-1). The Wildcats had their backs against the wall early after USC

Becky Barry, 24, kicks the ball upfield in Arizona’s 1-0 loss to UCLA on Friday at Mulcahy Soccer Stadium. The Wildcats closed the season on a five-game losing streak to finish 5-13-2 and 1-8 in the Pacific 10 Conference.

scored two goals within the first five minutes of the match. Arizona trailed 5-0 at the end of the first half in what was ultimately too big a deficit to overcome. “We let down defensively, and we were just very complacent early on. We had a very tough time doing what we’ve done well all season, and it wasn’t until halftime where we had a chance to regroup,” Oyen said. “To go down by that sort of goal deficit and come back would have been very difficult.” With the 2010 season over, Arizona can close the book on its first year in the process of rebuilding the program.

Inconsistency was the word that followed the Wildcats during the season, and look no further than this weekend’s losses to see the fluctuation in their play on the field. For Oyen, she knows that a team of 12 inexperienced freshmen will return in 2011 having taken the bumps and bruises of collegiate soccer, and will be stronger because of it. “It’s always difficult to see the bigger picture after a loss like this in the last game,” Oyen said. “I think having an entire season under the belt now, we know where we need to go, and the players understand the level of training we need day in and day out.”

two first-year guards running the offense, but Arizona head coach Niya Butts said that she needs her guards to cut down on turnovers. “You’re gonna get some turnovers when you play as fast as we’re trying to play,” Butts said. “But when you’re passing the ball, and it goes out of bounds, or dribble it off your foot, those are unforced errors, and we’ve got to clean those up.” Arizona turned the ball over 25 times in its final tune up before the regular season — which tips off on Friday — but Butts said that 15 of those were the type that she can live with. The 49-point disparity between the two teams might give the impression that the Wildcats were dominant, but Butts isn’t happy with what Arizona is doing on defense.

Wildcats missed 13 free throws. “We got there 35 times, which is good. What scares you is if you shoot 6 or 8 free throws,” Miller said. “We have to shoot a higher percentage, throughout the game when you struggle that much from the line and you’re

Natyazhko to return from concussion this week

Sean Miller said it as a joke, but maybe it should be considered. “Helmets are optional in practice,” he said, sparking a laugh among the media after Arizona’s lackluster exhibition win against Augustana College. TheWildcats never quite threw a final blow against the Division-II school from South Dakota, which is odd because they certainly know how to throw down in practice. UA center Kyryl Natyazhko missed the game after suffering from a concussion last week during practice. Miller expects him to be cleared over the next couple days by team doctors, who require concussed athletes to pass a memory-based test after sitting out for seven days. Ask Kevin Parrom about the test: It took the UA wing “two to three times” to pass after he suffered a concussion in practice from falling on his head earlier this preseason. “The first day when I came back I was lost,”said Parrom, who scored 2 points in 7 minutes of action last night. “The next day I did better and came back.” In more noticeable bang-ups, Derrick Williams played with a black eye after getting head-butted by Kyle Fogg in practice on Thursday when both went up for a rebound. Williams said his eye was much more swollen a few days ago. Yesterday it just looked like mascara. When asked about the team’s bumps and bruises from Miller’s hard practices, Solomon Hill checked out his muscles and joked, “we’re all bigger.” Miller said: “Like any athlete who sustains a concussion, you have to move through the right progression and we support that progression 100 percent. We don’t want to rush anyone back.” — Bryan Roy

getting fouled that much, it starts to work against you, and it did.” Arizona’s two most popular players had very different nights. The reigning Pacific 10 Conference Freshman of the Year, Derrick Williams, led the way with 19 points and six rebounds. Meanwhile, UA point guard Momo Jones struggled in his new role as the team’s floor general. He went 0-for-6 from the floor and 0-for-3 from beyond the arc with only one assist. Luckily for Jones, it was only an exhibition game and he has a week to prepare for the season opener this Sunday against Idaho State. “(Jones) was our team’s most improved player a year ago,” Miller said. “He’s playing more under control, last year he learned and improved, I hope he doesn’t go for 0-for-6 every night, tonight wasn’t his night, but it was a great learning experience for him.” After its subpar showing, Arizona has one week to break down film and fine tune its performance. “I think we’re ready to play,” Miller said. “I’m glad we have a week. I think the week will serve us well.”




“For me, as a coach at this point, I’m not too happy about (the defense),” Butts said. “We have to be more in tune. We’re not going to win a lot of basketball games trying to outscore people. We’ve got to get our defense caught with the offense at this point.” One of the main concerns for Butts is defense in the post. Arizona was without junior transfer forward Taylor Dalrymple in Sunday’s win, and that could have been limiting for the Wildcats. “(It was) my decision not to play her,” Butts said. “If I decide that she’ll be out on Friday, then she’ll be out.” Arizona opens the regular season with a contest at Wichita State University on Friday before opening up the home slate against Northern Arizona University on Monday.

Wildcats V-ball goes hunting UA sweeps weekend with Ducks, Beavers By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The No. 23 Arizona volleyball team seized the chance to insert itself back into the Pacific 10 Conference race this weekend by beating No. 20 Oregon and Oregon State at McKale Center. Arizona (18-7, 7-5 Pac-10) started off by sweeping Oregon (17-8, 5-8) in three sets on Friday in a dominating fashion. “All wins are good in our conference, and I’m pleased with how we played,” said Arizona head coach Dave Rubio. “Oregon was off tonight, but it’s hard to complain about winning. Losing just feels so much worse than winning.” The Wildcats haven’t had to deal with the feeling after a loss in more than two weeks, as Arizona is in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Before this weekend, seven of the Wildcats’ 10 conference matches had gone to five sets. “It’s so early, I don’t know what to do,” said senior Whitney Dosty after the game, commenting on Arizona’s tendency to drag matches out. “But yeah, it’s a nice win getting done in three (games).” Dosty has been battling a stress

out of field goal range and forced a punt. The Wildcats didn’t cross the goal line until late in the third quarter, and when they began to mount a comeback, the defense could not hold off the Stanford offense. Even when the offense showed some life in the second half, the defense had no answers for Stanford. “To see the offense get going and then us come out, let them drive down the field and score, it’s extremely frustrating because it needs to be a team effort against teams like this, against teams of this caliber,” said linebacker Paul Vassallo. “We didn’t hold up our end tonight.” On the contrary, Stanford (8-1, 5-1 Pac-10) quarterback Andrew Luck could do no wrong. In a performance that Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh called “Peyton Manning-like,” the redshirt sophomore completed 23-of-32 passes and threw for two touchdowns.

“He’s just a great player. He’s very, very good,” said Arizona head coach Mike Stoops. “I don’t think there’s any question about his status, his demeanor, his poise, his accuracy, he’s a very polished player for this young.” The nation’s 10th ranked defense — which allowed an average 287 yards per game coming into the matchup with the Cardinal — let Stanford gain 510 yards, with most of them coming rather easily. Running back Stepfan Taylor recorded four touchdowns, all short running plays from within the 5-yard line. Arizona was the stingiest defense in the Pac-10 before the game, but gave up six touchdowns. “It’s disappointing because we know we’re way better than what we displayed on the field,” said cornerback Robert Golden.

Perhaps expectations were too high

realistic hope of reaching the Rose Bowl on Saturday, it was exposed. And it’s our fault. The media, the fans and the alumni all watched in awe as the Wildcats sprinted out to a 7-1 record to start the season. We all thought that Arizona was good enough to make it to the Rose Bowl for the first time in school history. But while the Wildcats are good, they aren’t good enough yet. We all thought that Foles was going to go down as the best quarterback in Arizona history. Foles is a good quarterback with tremendous potential and NFL-chances, but we failed to realize that through seven games played he has just 10 touchdown passes and six interceptions. He was outclassed by Luck. We all thought that head coach Mike Stoops would be the man to take Arizona to the promise land. What he’s done up until this point with the program is remarkable, but the team has shown too many flaws this season to enter elite status. He was outcoached by Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh. We all thought that cornerback Trevin Wade would be the rock that carried the defense this season. He has disappeared this year on the field and hasn’t taken the step we all expected him to before

the season. He was benched for most of the game after being outrun by all of Stanford’s receivers. This year, in terms of end results, is no different from every other year in Arizona football history. The Wildcats will not make the Rose Bowl. But that isn’t really a bad thing. If you take a step back and really evaluate it, the Rose Bowl was probably far too optimistic. Realistically, the Wildcats are a team with two very good defensive ends — Ricky Elmore and Brooks Reed — and one elite wide receiver — Juron Criner, far and away the best player on the team. The rest of the team adds up to the most balanced group that Stoops has had in years. It just isn’t ready yet the way that Stanford is. Considering the potential of Foles and several other players, the Wildcats could be ready next year — and that’s OK. Plus, a season that started with seven wins in the first eight games and will likely finish with at least nine regular season wins is an awful lot to be proud of. It just isn’t the season we thought it would be, and it isn’t the season that the Wildcats wanted. — Tim Kosch is a journalism senior and the sports editor of the Daily Wildcat. He can be reached at

Technology gives professors ability to amplify artifacts for students

classes. In one class, Mackender photographed and edited images of skulls for a professor. “This instructor saw it as a way to show to his large classes, the 300-400 auditorium-size classes, a large image on a projected screen of a skull that would be impossible to pass around to everybody,� Mackender said. “And you can show all the way around that skull.� Mackender has produced images of around 150 Southwestern pots in virtual reality for the Arizona State Museum on campus. This makes some of the 18,000 pots in the museum more accessible for public viewing. Shayna Farber, an architecture

major, works with Mackender as part of a student technology preceptor program. Before learning about the annex from her professor, Farber didn’t know it existed. “I can apply this in my architecture projects,� she said. Farber is working on her first project with Native American pots. She estimated it would take her two hours to finish it. Mackender estimated he spends an average of 40 minutes on each project. Mackender said any faculty, student or staff can check out the appropriate gear to photograph the images and then edit them as virtual reality images. Most of the time,

he is involved in all stages of production — photographing, editing images with Adobe Photoshop and then putting them together in special virtual reality programs. “(Virtual reality) is another facet of photography,� he said. Mackender is working with programmers in the office to expand the virtual reality’s viewing capabilities to be compatible with iPhones and iPads. “More and more people are using smaller apparatus to view their web content,� Mackender said. He also said he hopes to “implement what’s already out there� in this type of programming.

Scientists convert human cells McClatchy Tribune Canadian scientists have turned human skin cells directly into blood cells, the first time one kind of mature human cell has been converted into another, according to a study published Sunday in the journal Nature. The transformation was completed without first rewinding the skin cells into the flexible pluripotent stem cells that have most frequently been used to grow tissues. By skipping the pluripotent step, the researchers believe they have skirted the risk that the replacement cells might form dangerous tumors. The team created blood progenitor cells — the mother cells that multiply to produce other blood cells — as well as mature blood cells, according to the report. Both

types of cells could be useful in medical treatments, said study leader Mick Bhatia, a stem cell scientist at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. “There is a great need for alternative sources of human blood,� Bhatia said. “Since this source would come from a patient’s own skin, there would be no concern of rejection of the transplanted cells.� The scientists used a trial-and-error approach to figure out which genes needed to be activated to reprogram the cells into blood cells. Then, they looked for the right combination of growth factors — blood proteins that promote development of the new cells — to coax the process along. They found that they needed to turn on a single gene — called OCT4 — in the skin cells, and that the cells needed to bathe in precise-

ly calibrated combinations of four to six growth factors, Bhatia said. By tweaking the formula, the team was able to produce different types of blood cells, he said. For example, when they left out the protein called erythropoietin, the skin cells generated neutrophils and macrophages — types of white blood cell used by the immune system. They also tested the cells in mice to see if they would generate cancer. They did not. But it is not yet clear whether the blood cells generated directly from skin will pose safety concerns of their own. Bhatia said he is seeking research partners to study the risks associated with the new technique and to determine if it works at the “industrial levels� suitable for generating the large numbers of blood cells a patient might need.

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships

In 1991 the first condom commercial aired on American TV.

Q How do you improve sexual sensations for a man when using condoms?

A. Good news! There are several ways to increase sensitivity when using condoms and manufacturers have dozens of styles to choose from. Try these on for size: Put some water-based lubricant in the reservoir tip of the condom before you roll it on your willy. Personal lubricants include the following brands: K-Y, Astroglide, ID, Wet, etc. Many men use this easy little secret for enhancing pleasure. Look for condoms that are labeled “ultra-sensitive.” Every major condom manufacturer markets thinner or ultrasensitive styles. Durex and Lifestyles had the 7 top ranked products in the Consumer Reports condom testing report in February 2010. Experiment with the new and exciting varieties of condoms. Some have a larger, baggier tip to create more friction where it feels good. Others are ribbed or twisted. There are condoms with compounds that heat up or feel cold. See what works best for you. Have fun trying! Try out some of the new polyisoprene (non-latex) condoms. Lifestyles rolled out their brand called “Skyn” in 2009 and

several sexperts (and anonymous users we interviewed) report that they work great! Durex makes a brand called “Avanti Bare” and claim they will give you a “next-tonothing feel.” Ask your partner to try the “Female condom,” which gives you more wiggle room. This polyurethane (thin plastic) sheath offers both pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention. It is designed for vaginal use but can be used for anal sex (once the ring is removed). Add a warming lube to your next encounter. Some like it hot! And others don’t. The decision is yours. Most pharmacies, including Campus Health’s, carry all the products mentioned above. Convenience and grocery stores will have a smaller selection to choose from. And you can always order products online. Note that condoms sold in novelty shops where you buy “gag” gifts are not usually designed for STD protection. Bonus points: The slight desensitizing feature of many condoms can help a man last longer in a sexual encounter.
