Student helps find new planet


DOCTOR TO POLITICIAN UAMC surgeon who treated Giffords announces plans to run for Arizona House of Representatives



BY MARK ARMAO The Daily Wildcat

A UA graduate student’s research recently led to the discovery of a planet that has many astronomers rethinking planet formation. The planet, dubbed HD 106906 b, is a gas giant orbiting its parent star at a distance 650 times greater than the distance between the Earth and the sun. It was imaged with a telescope that utilizes several instruments developed at the UA. The finding of such a massive planet orbiting so far from its parent star is unprecedented, said Vanessa Bailey, the graduate student in the Department of Astronomy who led the research. In fact, the exoplanet, which is 11 times more massive than Jupiter, is the “most distantly orbiting planet that anybody’s been able to find around a single sun-like star,” Bailey said. The imaging of the planet was done using the Magellan Telescope in Chile, which uses unique, UA-developed technology to counteract the twinkling of the stars. Due to the natural turbulence of the atmosphere, stars appear blurry when imaged directly. The resulting glare can hide finer structures within the system, such as planets, said Laird Close, a professor in the Department of Astronomy. To eliminate the glare, Close uses the Magellan Adaptive Optics system, which deforms the small secondary mirror of the telescope 1,000 times per second to correct for the disturbances caused by the air. “You click a mouse button and it goes from being a blurry, fuzzy image to being an ultra-sharp image,” Close said, “and then faint little things around the star, like a planet, can be seen.” Using the MagAO technology, the team was able to image the planet in the infrared, as opposed to the visible light spectrum. The discovery of such an oddball planet came as a surprise to Close,

A team of UA researchers recently discovered what has been causing large amounts of shrimp in Asia to die and has led to a global shortage. A harmful new strand of bacteria — which evolved from a common strand of bacteria that the shrimp were already exposed to — is causing a disease called Early Mortality Syndrome. The disease has seriously affected shrimp hatcheries in Asia and is continuing to spread, causing a worldwide shrimp shortage. Early Mortality Syndrome occurs within a few days of taking the larval shrimp from the hatcheries to ponds, where they are supposed grow for about 120 to 140 days. However, when shrimp have the bacterial infection, they start dying within a week or two of going into the ponds, said Kevin Fitzsimmons, researcher and director for the College of Agriculture and Life PHOTO COURTESY OF LOC TRAN Sciences’ International Programs.

For those students who may be pulling out their hair or are otherwise stressed, Student Affairs will be offering events, deals and free food this week, including a free pancake breakfast. Finals Survival Week is an effort by Student Affairs to help support students this finals season, said Todd Millay , assistant director of the Arizona Student Unions. This includes Residence Life, the Student Recreation Center, the Arizona Student Unions and Campus Health. The week will begin with a Kick Off Event today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the UA Mall that will include a zip line, craft tables, games, free samples of ice cream and therapy dogs. “It’s simply a way to help students have an opportunity to de-stress before finals,” Nick Sweeton, senior director of residential education , said, “and maybe have a little time to get their mind off finals for a bit.” A free pancake breakfast will also be offered for the first time Thursday night from 10 p.m. to midnight at Cactus Grill, Bear Down Kitchen and Park Ave Dining , Millay said. The idea for the free breakfast on Reading Day came from Jason Tolliver, director of Arizona Student Unions. The hope is that students who are up late studying will come in and take advantage of a free meal, consisting of pancakes, sausage and coffee, Millay said. “It’s a chance for [students] to take a break and have a little fun for a bit,” Millay said. Sweeton said he hopes the pancake breakfast will become a tradition that is held every semester. This is the second time Student Affairs has held Finals Survival Week, Sweeton said. In previous years, different offices put on similar events, but it wasn’t until last semester that all finals week events were

Bill Schmidt, professor of journalism How does one go from being a Pulitzer Prize-winner at the New York Times to being a journalism professor here? Well, I actually retired from the Times. I worked at the Times for 32 years, and before that, I was a correspondent at Newsweek, and before that, I was a reporter at the Detroit Free Press, and before that, I was a student at the University of Michigan. After 32 years at the Times, I met some people out here, and I’ve always admired the journalism program at the University of Arizona. It was an opportunity to join the faculty, so I’m happy to be here.

What in particular do you like about Arizona? I just read your piece about Chicago, “Life After Dark, Plain And Fancy.” In that sort of spirit, what do you think of Tucson? I’ve lived in 11 different cities and four different countries during my career. I like the energy of Tucson because it’s a college town. I loved Ann Arbor[, Mich.]; I lived in Boulder, [Colorado,] where the University of Colorado is; I just spent Thanksgiving in Lexington, Kentucky, where the University of Kentucky is located — there’s something really special about college towns. And in Tucson, you have the bonus of it being a college town with the weather — except the summer — the weather is pretty nice, and you’ve got these cool mountains all around the city. A lot of great outdoors experiences.

What do you think you’ve taught the young journalists so far this semester, your first semester? The world’s become more complicated; the world’s become smaller. In some ways, it’s become more dangerous, and journalism has a very important role to play in making sense of what’s going on. It all happens very quickly. There are so many different sources of information. And so I think what everybody in this department is trying to do is to graduate a group of young journalists who understand the importance of journalism and helping translate these complicated and fast-moving events into information people can rely on, information that’s trustworthy — the type of information people need to participate in a democratic society. That’s kind of a highfalutin answer, but that’s what we’re trying to do.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 7 — Accept a challenge and stir things up. Look at yourself differently; try on a new role. Dress the part. Consult an expert. Follow through on your plan. Stand up for yourself. Business connections open doors and liquidity improves.

Do you consider that your greatest accomplishment, something else or is your greatest moment yet to come? Well, I’m not sure what’s to come. It would be nice to think other accomplishments will come. The Pulitzer was a great honor. But I’ve been very fortunate because my career has taken me to so many places, that I’ve been able to write from Moscow during the time of the Soviet Union. I wrote from Cairo when Anwar Sadat was the president and reached out to Israel. I worked out of Miami, Chicago, Denver and London. I spent four years in London — that was pretty cool! There’ve been a lot of great moments, and this is a new chapter.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 6 — Make a decision intuitively. Share behind closed doors. Checks arrive. You can do more than you thought. Liberate some space. Meditation calms your mind. Clarify all communications. Be careful traveling now. Replenish your reserves, and rest up.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 6 — A brilliant idea concerning money comes to you. Your list may be shorter than you think. Study before buying. Get down to business quickly. Your decision isn’t so surprising, and a lovely moment comes from it. Savor it.

And you have a shared Pulitzer for your coverage of the Challenger explosion? Just to make a point, I always make it very clear, to say it was shared. This was not something I won outright, as some of my colleagues did. I was a part of a team of people who were covering the Challenger explosion after the Challenger exploded back in 1986. And the Times received a Pulitzer for its coverage; I think there were seven or eight of us who were part of the team, including a couple of editors. [The prize] was really for the entire breadth of the coverage. My coverage, as part of the prize, was the work I did at Cape Canaveral, Cape Kennedy, after the explosion. I was there for six weeks, reporting on what was happening on the scene there when they were recovering parts of the shuttle and the remains of the astronauts.

who doubted they’d find anything significant around the star. “It’s like so many things in observational sciences,” Close said. “Nature is once again stranger than we had suspected.” What makes the planet unique is that a body with so much mass orbiting at such a great distance from its star doesn’t fit with the conventional models of planet formation. Earth is thought to have slowly coalesced from the material — gas and dust — that billions of years ago collected around the sun in what is referred to as a protoplanetary disk. HD 106906 b, on the other hand, is so far away from its host star that this type of formation is unlikely because most protoplanetary disks don’t extend that far, Bailey said. The other major theory of planet formation, which pertains more to gas giants like Jupiter, Saturn and the UA-discovered sphere, is that a clump of material in the disk leads to a relatively rapid collapse, forming a large gas planet. “The problem with that, again, is that these initial protoplanetary disks, we don’t think that they have enough material out at [that

distance] to collapse into an 11-Jupiter-mass object,” Bailey said. As for how the planet actually formed, Bailey said she is leaning toward a theory that posits that the new world isn’t a beefy planet, but a puny star whose development was stunted. Bailey added that stars sometimes form as a binary system, in which two stars form near each other. It may be the case that the newly discovered planet was on its way to becoming a star before it was “starved” of the necessary material. However, the extreme difference in mass between the planet and the star is inconsistent with any of the ratios observed in binary systems, she said. The researchers’ findings were published on Tuesday in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. They will continue to study the newfound planet in hopes of unveiling its mysterious origins. “To be able to work on something that’s cutting edge … and to have all that hard work pay off in the end and do something amazing like discover a planet — it’s a really good feeling,” said Jared Males, a postdoctoral scientist in the Department of Astronomy. “It’s absolutely incredible.” — Follow Mark Armao @Mark_Armao

she has seen the price of shrimp increase substantially in recent years. In 2010, the restaurant was paying about $4 per pound of shrimp, and now it is paying about $7 per pound, she added. “With steady business and clientele, we haven’t directly been harshly affected, economically,” Preciado said. “But if the prices continue to increase, then that may change.” Shane Burgess, dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, said the UA’s discovery is central to the sustainability of the shrimp industry. “The U of A has been on the map for our work in shrimp disease for a long time,” Burgess said. “This really is a big deal for the world — that we don’t have this industry collapse.” mark armao/The Daily Wildcat

organized under one umbrella. “We have the Finals Survival Week logo that [students] see everywhere on campus,” Sweeton said. “Even if you don’t know exactly what the activity is, you know that it is for you during finals week.” The activities and deals of this Finals Survival Week include free drip coffee at various locations, discounts on food and more study rooms, Millay said. Highland Market will be making food deliveries again, and the Starbucks at the UA Main Library will be open 24 hours. Melissa Sayegh, a prephysiology freshman, said she has heard of the many deals going on as a part of Finals Survival Week and plans on taking advantage of them. Sayegh added that this time of the semester has been stressful, and she is looking forward to breaks from studying for the six finals she will be taking. Student Affairs received positive feedback for the way Finals Survival Week was organized last semester, Sweeton said, adding that

the effort was successful. Last semester, more than 400 gallons of free coffee were distributed, residence halls held 76 programs with more than 4,000 student participants, more than 400 students visited therapy dogs and 518 food deliveries were made from Highland Market, Sweeton said.

could see what Gabby [Giffords] was giving to the community,” Friese said. “Serving in the Legislature would be something I could do to give back to the community.” Friese said he also sees change coming in the state and wants to be in the Legislature to help advance that change when it comes, adding that he wants education to be the focus of his campaign. “Education is the great equalizer,” Friese said. “It levels the playing field, and it opens many closed doors.” Friese said he grew up poor but was determined to go to college and become a doctor. He is grateful for the opportunities that allowed him to receive an education, he said, and he wants others growing up to have the opportunity to pursue an education as well. While education is key to the platform of his campaign, Friese said he knows other issues will also come into focus, including the gun control debate. “Gun control and responsible gun ownership legislation is in the forefront of the country and in the forefront of what I think is going to be changing in the

near future,” Friese said. “It will become an important part of the campaign, and it will be an issue I will need to speak about and address.” The amount of commitment a campaign requires is often underestimated by the average voter, said Bill Roe, chairman of the Arizona Democratic Party. He said he talked with Friese and his wife about the rigors of running a political campaign. “Many of the people in the general population have no clue how much it takes up of your life,” Roe said. “It will impact your life, not only when you’re running for office, but if you do get elected.” Friese said his family is ready for the campaign to begin, adding he never makes a decision without his wife. He also still plans on dedicating some time to practicing medicine during his campaign, although, if elected, he said he would have to greatly reduce the time he could serve as a surgeon. “It’s not a short-term commitment, it’s a long-term commitment,” Friese said, “and that’s why we want to get in it early — to tell people we’re in it for the long haul.” — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney

Safe Ride’s hours too limited BY Elizabeth Eaton The Daily Wildcat


hen I first came to the UA for orientation, Safe Ride was vaunted as a service that I could use to get around late at night if I was scared or if I didn’t feel comfortable walking home after a party. If I was lucky, and asked nicely enough, it could even take me to Fry’s. Students commonly believe that Safe Ride is meant to be a designated driver service or an alternative to calling a cab. “I thought Safe Ride was a free taxi service for students, but especially for those people that are in no position to drive or even find a taxi, like people who come from parties on Saturday,” said Christina Duran, a freshman studying prejournalism and political science. Misconceptions like Duran’s are far from the reality of what Safe Ride does, since it does not even operate on Saturday and closes early, at 9:30 p.m., on Friday. Sarah Early, the operations director of Safe Ride, said the program helps more than 400 students every night it operates. “[Safe Ride] is by far the most visible thing that ASUA does, because we’re there every night for six and a half hours, you see our cars all over town, people know who we are,” Early said. “We affect 1 percent of the University of Arizona every night.” But it needs to be there for students late on Friday and Saturday too. Amanda Lester, the administrative vice president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said, “A lot of people don’t think it fits with their idea of Safe Ride, because a lot of people think Safe Ride [is for] after parties, or if they’re out at night, but that wasn’t its original intention at all.” She said Safe Ride is for giving students a ride to their dorms or houses after they study late, rather than giving them a ride home from the bar. No one is disputing that transporting students to and from the library helps keep them safe and that taking students to buy groceries is convenient, but that shouldn’t be Safe Ride’s only function, and it doesn’t change the fact that I’ve been uncomfortable walking back to my dorm late on a Saturday and couldn’t get safe transportation. Safe Ride has been able to make a mark with what little funding it has, but its limited hours frequently leave students without a safe way to get home. “It would be more effective if Safe Ride was open later,” said Maddie McKenzie, a freshman studying business and art. “I feel like weekends are the most common time for kids to be out late and at risk.” When you compare SafeRide to Arizona State University’s similar program, Safety Escort Service, its shortcomings become clearer. The Safety Escort Service is open from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., longer than Safe Ride, and every day of the week, including Saturday. What’s more, the Safety Escort Service is funded by the Associated Students of Arizona State University, its student government. If ASASU can get its act together and provide the money for safe transportation eight hours a day, seven days a week, then what’s stopping us? It’s not that Safe Ride officials have some horrible aversion to operating later on Fridays and on Saturdays; Safe Ride simply lacks the funding to stay open during these times. Currently, the program receives $140,000 a year from the Student Services Fee, as well as $60,000 directly from ASUA. To increase the hours of operation, Safe Ride would need roughly $50,000 more per year, according to Early. “Obviously, the demand for Safe Ride is there,” Early said. “We don’t have the supply.” If Safe Ride “loves safety” as its website so declares, then safety shouldn’t take a break. Students should be able to enjoy themselves on Friday and Saturday nights without worrying about how they will get home. With more funding, Safe Ride will be able to provide what it should be focusing on: a safe way for students to get home, every day of the week. — Elizabeth Eaton is a prejournalism freshman.

Wildcat provides inspiration, real-world work experience BY brittny mejia The Daily Wildcat


n President Ann Weaver Hart’s recently unveiled “Never Settle” strategic plan, she pushes for 100 percent student engagement — getting students real-world experience. We at the Daily Wildcat couldn’t agree more. Students at the Wildcat have been gaining hands-on experience since before Hart was even born. Students here learn to interview, work as a team, hone creative skills and get up to speed on the latest technology, among other accomplishments. And students don’t just work in the editorial department — they also help out on the advertising and production side of the news-making process here. Joey Fisher, our current design chief and a journalism junior, said that everything she has learned about news design, she learned in the year and a half she’s spent at the Wildcat. As a result, she was offered an internship with the Gannett Company for the summer. But this doesn’t only apply to journalism students, or those interested in a newspaper job after graduation. Real-world experience is essential for every student, regardless of your field. It’s tempting in college to only focus on

improving your drinking game skills, but they aren’t something you can necessarily apply after graduation. (Unless what you want to do is dedicate your whole life to competing in the World Series of Beer Pong, and if so, then by all means have at it.) My freshman year I learned that Thursday was the new Friday, avoiding Friday classes was a must and the hill by the Administration building was the best place to take a nap after a long night out. But if I could do it all over again, I would have started working at the Wildcat sooner. Two years of working here has provided me with experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The late nights, massive responsibility and stressful issues count for something. This is it. This is the real world. The Daily Wildcat has been “raising hell since 1899.” Archived copies of its issues line the shelves of our conference room, and opening one of the books could yield the names of reporters many of us are familiar with today. Ryan Finley, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wildcat in fall 2001 and now sports editor for the Arizona Daily Star, said he learned more at the Daily Wildcat than he ever did in school. “The reason I’m in journalism now is because I had so much fun doing it when I was at the Wildcat,” Finley said. “You work there long enough, you tend to see everything, and when you get out into the real world it’s just not scary anymore because you’ve experienced

so many things in college. I wish more majors and programs had something like the Wildcat so people could have as much fun and learn as much as we did.” Yes, we are just students and that means some people might take us less seriously, but it shouldn’t affect how we feel about our abilities. We are in charge of our own futures, and if we don’t take advantage of these stepping stones, we’ll fall behind the pack. Jobs won’t wait for you to prepare yourself. Ryan Gabrielson, a Pulitzer-prize winning reporter who is in the Daily Wildcat Alumni Hall of Fame, cited the Wildcat as the place where he learned how to be a reporter and how to be aggressive. Shouldn’t everyone feel as prepared when they graduate? Hart wants students to be workforce-ready, and the campus newspaper is one of the many options students have to make this happen. A degree is no longer enough, so put in the work and make your time at the UA count, whether it’s at the Wildcat or somewhere else. The Wildcat gave me the skills I applied to my summer internship at the Oakland Tribune and the experience I will need to pursue journalism after I graduate in May. If you’re lucky, you’ll also find your Daily Wildcat in your time at the UA. — Brittny Mejia is the editor-inchief. Follow her @BrittnyAriel

Tough prostitution laws harm AZ BY Jacqui Oesterblad The Daily Wildcat


all me cynical, but I was unsurprised to learn that Arizona has some of the harshest laws targeting prostitutes in the country — a first offense carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 days in jail, and by the fourth arrest, the charge is upped to a felony and the jail time becomes 180 days. For Tucson, these statemandated minimum sentences for sex workers carry a heavy local price tag. Housing a first-time offender in the county jail for 15 days costs around $1500. Cities have attempted to find solutions within the confines of the law to limit both these court costs and the unfair treatment of people working as prostitutes, giving rise to a diversion program in Phoenix known as Project ROSE (Reaching Out on Sexual Exploitation) and its newer Tucson cousin, Project RAISE (Responsible Alternatives to Incarceration for the Sexually Exploited). These diversion programs offer those arrested an alternative to court: Complete six months of group counseling, supported by housing and employment assistance, and the charges will be dropped. Outstanding warrants or prior convictions make one ineligible for the deal. While I recognize the mostly honorable intentions of initiatives to connect these women and

men to social services and soften the effects of our overly harsh prostitution laws, Project ROSE and Project RAISE’s many problems make them unjustifiable. For one thing, the arrested women and men are not allowed to consult a lawyer before making their decision about whether to participate in diversion. Program proponents have argued that, because charges have not yet been filed, the arrested and handcuffed sex workers are not entitled to legal counsel. But when people have to decide between charges and diversion without even being allowed to ask a lawyer about how serious the threat of charges might be, I think we can agree that there is a problem. Furthermore, Project ROSE and Project RAISE operate as sting operations. They don’t run year-round, but rather for one or two days at a time. During this time, prostitution arrests are ramped up, and in Tucson, police officers will even directly book an appointment with a prostitute. In Phoenix, city law allows officers to arrest those whom they even suspect of prostitution on a charge of “manifesting prostitution.” Casting such a wide net to catch as many sex workers as possible is problematic for two reasons. It compounds the problems that the diversion programs are supposed to be mitigating — mainly that our prostitution laws

want help transitioning out of the are harsh and unfair, on the one hand, and the high cost of enforcing profession. One sex worker told America Tonight that she could the mandatory minimums, on the make $200 in 10 or 15 minutes other. Because not every sex worker in her line of work — more than picked up in these sting operations 25 times what someone working will qualify for diversion, and even for minimum wage would make fewer will complete the program, in an hour. For these women and the programs do little to further men, sex work can be their most justice in the end. profitable and accessible job These sting operations choice, and a transition to a new also use police and the threat career could mean a transition into of incarceration to connect poverty. a vulnerable This is not the population to social way it should services, a major Using the be, but using the violation of the ethics police to police to bully most charities strive save these vulnerable people to uphold.

What a coincidence

A UA student and a man unaffiliated with the UA were arrested for shoplifting from the UofA Bookstore on Nov. 27 at about 3:30 p.m. The man was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a report of possible shoplifting at the bookstore after security stopped the two men from leaving the store and brought them back inside for questioning. The two men said they had seen each other in the store, but had never met. The officer first searched the man’s backpack, where he found a shirt wrapped around a glass pipe that smelled like marijuana. The man said he had bought the pipe that day for $60. The man was wearing a grey sweatshirt and a blue baseball cap with the UA insignia on them, which he admitted were property of the bookstore. The man said he had ripped the tags off of them. He then removed both items and returned them to the bookstore. The officer then searched the student’s backpack. Bookstore staff had taken a blue UA sweatshirt out of his backpack earlier. The student said he bought the sweatshirt two days before, but left the receipt at home. Bookstore security told the officer that the student was on surveillance footage taking the sweatshirt from a rack and putting it in his backpack. The officer reviewed the footage and saw the student walking through the store with his backpack open, removing the tag from the sweatshirt and then walking out of sight of the cameras. When the student returned on camera, the sweatshirt was gone and his backpack was closed. The man and the student were seen talking to each other multiple times on camera and the officer noted that the two seemed to know each other. The student continued to deny knowing the man and insisted that the sweatshirt was his. The man was arrested, cited and released for shoplifting and arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. The UA student was arrested, cited and released for shoplifting, and a code of conduct violation was completed and forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.

A UA employee reported suspicious activity at Campbell Farms on Dec. 4 at around 10 a.m. The employee said she found a white rope about 6 feet in length, frayed at both ends, in one of the horse pastures. An officer from UAPD responded to the report. The employee told the UAPD officer that the farm never uses the particular type of rope found in the pasture and said she was concerned that someone may have been trying to break into the pasture and mess with or potentially harm the horses. All the horses were checked for injuries and nothing out of the ordinary was reported. The rope was submitted into UAPD evidence.

A CHALKBOARD set up near CVS on University Boulevard invites passersby to complete the sentence “Before I die...” on Friday. People have written a variety of goals, including going to Paris and sky diving.

Board on University Boulevard asks students to share lifetime goals BY JAZMINE FOSTER-HALL

The Daily Wildcat In an effort to find out what’s on students’ bucket lists, a UA art class studying contemporary studio art created an interactive public art installation on University Boulevard last week. “Before I Die” is a chalkboard that encourages passersby to contribute by writing out something from their bucket lists. Allie Crist, a dance junior and member of the class that created the piece, said the project took only three days to put together. The class worked together to build, paint and install the structure, which is located outside of CVS. The “Before I Die” project was started by New Orleans native Candy Chang after she lost a loved one. She created the first “Before I Die” board in her neighborhood, and the project soon became an international movement.

The project has come to Tucson once or twice before, Crist said, but never on the same scale as the current one. She added that the project is a great way for people to remember how to share their feelings with one another. “I think sometimes we all kind of get in our own heads and forget how to connect with one another,” Crist said. “The premise of the project is so simple, but it can say a lot about sharing with one another. Complete strangers have written on that, and reading their words, I get something out of it.” Some of the goals written on the board include opening an animal sanctuary, saving a life and having a white Christmas. Whether it’s deeply personal or something more generic, Crist said, each dream is something people can to relate to. “It’s such a public forum for sharing our individual hopes and dreams that might be really personal to us,” Crist said. “It just makes you realize that you’re not the only one that has these

big aspirations.” The project is creating conversation on University Boulevard. Onlookers Heather Espinoza and Carlos Flores said the board got them thinking about what would be on their bucket lists. “I want to go to Hawaii,” Espinoza said. The idea of traveling was popular. “I want to travel, like go to Paris,” Flores added, “but that’s all I’ve come up with so far. I haven’t really thought about it.” The “Before I Die” project is a good way to get people thinking about what they want to do with their lives, said Mari McCarthy, an engineering freshman. “Before I die, I want to give my parents a reason to be proud of me,” McCarthy said. Marissa Skwierczynski, a biology freshman, said that her “Before I Die” goal is to be a part of the fight against cancer. “I want to be a cancer biologist, so just contribute to a cure for cancer,” Skwierczynski

said. The board, which is covered in chalkboard paint, is constantly changing, Crist said. Crist added some of the funnier dreams she’s seen on the board have been to make out with Justin Bieber and visit the Playboy Mansion — but there have also been some deeper responses. “Somebody had written, ‘Before I die I want to make her the happiest woman in the world,’” Crist said. “And then several lines down somebody wrote ‘meet you’ after it and drew an arrow up to the first one.” Crist said the dream she wrote on the board was to meet Lady Gaga, as she hopes to be a backup dancer for the pop star someday, but she has other goals too. “Before I die I want to figure out what it means to be a grown-up,” Crist said. “I feel like I’ll still be a child even when I’m a grandmother.” ­— Follow News reporter Jazmine Foster-Hall @Jazz_Foster

Strong films in store for winter break sweep classic bumpy road “Mary Poppins” to production. Surprisingly enough, this cinematic marvel was never a lock. Walt Disney (Hanks) encounters the stalwart author of his children’s favorite book, “Mary Poppins,” when he tries to make good on his promise to turn it into a movie. Disney invites P. L. Travers (Thompson) to come out to Los Angeles and Disneyland in an attempt to sway her. It might be overly sappy, or it might be just the right spoonful of sugar.


The Daily Wildcat We’re in the thick of it. Far, far away from now, there will come a bright day (Dec. 19) when we will be freed of our shackles of study guides and finals and the heartless façade of D2L. When that day comes, when break graces us, we will at last be able to embrace our newfound R&R time — and what better way than with a movie?


After you’ve negotiated your way through finals, “American Hustle,” a film that has generated significant Oscar buzz over the past couple of weeks, will hit the screens. Director David O. Russell combines the stellar casts from his previous two films, “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook.” Con artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) are forced to collaborate with FBI Agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), who wants to take down corrupt political operator Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner). Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence), Irving’s wife, may cause the whole scheme to unravel, though. The question with this film will probably be “how,” not “if,” it will be good.

A crazy-eyed woman that turns into a dragon and a man with his entire body tattooed as a skeleton are just some of the bizarre and fantastical sights from the trailers. Artistic liberties have been taken, to say the least. There’s style in spades, but will there be just as much substance?

Grocery store home for UA fraternity BY JOEY FISHER

The Daily Wildcat

Seventeen bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms and 5,100 square feet. This house may sound like a mansion, but it’s actually a renovated grocery store where one group of students has found a home. When Jarrett Reidhead, a designated broker at Tucson Integrity Realty, found the property at the corner of First Avenue and Drachman Street, it was originally a grocery store and laundromat that had gone out of business. Reidhead bought the property and decided to convert it into a large home. The process took four-and-a-half months. “I wanted a property where students could all meet together, live together and enjoy being together,” Reidhead said. Reidhead isn’t new to the university housing scene. He owns two other properties in Tucson: a 17-bedroom home on Sixth Street that he rents to the Zeta Beta Tau and Alpha Sigma Phi fraternities and a duplex on Seventh Street currently occupied by the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity. The demand for Reidhead’s most recent property came when the UA’s Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house was closed in March, leaving its members homeless for the fall. “We were all kind of scrambling,” said Hunter Carreira, a pre-business sophomore and member of Pi Kappa Phi. “We heard about this house from Sigma Alpha Epsilon, who lived here last year.” Carreira started researching homes later


A RENOVATED GROCERY STORE serves as the home of 20 Pi Kappa Phi fraternity members on First Avenue and Drachman Street.

that day. When he found Reidhead’s house, he said, it sounded like the perfect fit. The fraternity put down a security deposit and moved into the house on Aug. 1. Getting an

entire fraternity moved into a house was an unorganized process, he said. “It was nuts moving in,” Carreria said. “There were 20 people getting their stuff

organized. There were boxes, bed frames and mini refrigerators everywhere.” Inside, the house offers a spacious kitchen and living room area where the residents hang out together. The long island serves as a “bar” where the residents eat. One corner of the living area is home to five TVs, a projector and screen and a booth similar to those found in restaurants. Two long hallways lead to the house’s bedrooms, and the back patio hosts a hot tub. With all the space, some residents admit that the house can be hard to keep clean. “It’s a jungle,” said Dominic Roncace, an arts, media and entertainment sophomore. “There is no kitchen; it’s a black hole of dirty dishes and smelly things.” One of the biggest issues in the home is greed, said resident Dominic Hayden, a physiology sophomore. “Anything that is left out in the main room is up for grabs,” he said. “When living with so many of your friends, it’s hard not to rage.” Though the house has been described as a club on the weekends, the residents said they feel lucky to have found a home — especially one that’s fostered the type of relationship the tenants now have with each other. “It’s easy to study for tests, and it’s so much fun,” Carreira said. “I’m closer with all these kids than the people I was friends with in high school for four years.” — Follow Design Chief Joey Fisher @Jo_Fiish

Arizona faces New Mexico State in its first game ranked No. 1 this season BY EVAN ROSENFELD

The Daily Wildcat The newly crowned No. 1 Arizona men’s basketball team will try to extend its record to a perfect 10-0 on the season and take the first step toward retaining the top ranking in the country for another week when it hosts New Mexico State tonight in McKale Center. Arizona (9-0) enters play fresh off an exhilarating 63-58 victory over UNLV in the Wildcats’ annual white-out game last weekend, while NMSU (7-4) enters having lost its past three games to Colorado State, New Mexico and Gonzaga. “I’m glad to be here and, certainly, it’s a great honor to be the coach at Arizona,” head coach Sean Miller said. “I feel like we’ve played a competitive schedule. For us to be 9-0 and where we’re at as a team, it’s where we all hoped we could be. Now it’s just a matter of us continuing to grow and improve and hopefully, from a health perspective, we can get a lot of goodwill on our side there, too.” Despite being ranked at the top of the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches’ polls for the first time in his coaching career, Miller and the Wildcats will have to avoid being complacent. “You can make the argument that if you look at New Mexico State’s numbers, they are a better team than UNLV,” Miller said. “I’m sure they’ll come in here ready to go on Wednesday. We’ll have to be ready.” NMSU possesses a strong frontcourt lineup that features 7-foot-5, 355-pound center, Sim

Bhullar. A sophomore, Bhullar has enjoyed tremendous success in his college career and as a freshman, he averaged 10.1 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game en route to being honored as a WAC Freshman of the Year and broke NMSU’s single-season record for blocked shots with 85. This season, he is averaging 7.2 rebounds and has added a total of 37 blocks. In contrast, Arizona Wildcats 7-foot center Kaleb Tarczewski leads the team with less than half Bhullar’s number of blocks (14). “The scary part about them is they have a couple frontcourt players that are really physical and big in their own right,” Miller said. “We have to make sure we’re prepared for a guy that big.” Miller noted that when you’re No. 1, you are going to get every team’s best shot. Everyone wants to have the recognition of being the team who upset the top team in the nation, so Arizona won’t be able to let its guard down at all if it wants to remain on top for another week. Miller stressed the fact that while it is nice to be recognized for such a momentous achievement, there is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of games left to be played. “There is a lot of basketball in front of us,” Miller said. “It’s not like we’ve won a national championship or bowl game; what we’ve done is solidified our team as being good and we’re off to a good start.”




High marks all over Arizona’s 2013 Wildcats’ report card football regular

season in review BY SCARLETT MCCOURT The Daily Wildcat


UA JUNIOR GUARD T.J. McConnell drives the ball past UNLV defenders toward the basket on Saturday in McKale Center. The point guard position gets an A+ thanks to McConnell’s efficiency.

The Daily Wildcat Point guard: A+ In his first season with Arizona, junior transfer T.J. McConnell has been the glue that has turned the Wildcats into a top defensive and offensive team. His 6.8 assists per game, combined with his high efficiency on the defensive side, has UA fans preparing for a long tournament run. While senior Jordin Mayes doesn’t have the offensive stats that some of his teammates have compiled, Mayes has been a strong defensive presence off the bench and his veteran leadership should continue to shine. Shooting guard: A Junior Nick Johnson came into the season as one of the nation’s best defensive players. But the athletic shooting guard has clearly improved his offensive game by becoming more versatile and consistent with his shooting overall. Small Forward: B+ Freshman Aaron Gordon might not be putting up the statistics that Duke freshman Jabari Parker or Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins are, but his time and the game will eventually come to him. For now, the 18-year-old is a proven commodity by being the most athletic player on the court. Power Forward: AThe player most improved from last season has been sophomore power forward Brandon Ashley. He’s been an efficient post player on offense with an improving mid range and 3-point shot. His play has also been noticeably stronger, as he is clearly more comfortable on the court in his second year of college.

Center: B Starting center Kaleb Tarczewski’s size has covered up a lack of depth at the frontcourt. But the starting sophomore and 7-foot center is still a work in progress. Tarczewski showed commitment to the program over the summer by losing weight and getting in better basketball shape, which has allowed him to stay on the court longer and mask the Wildcats’ depth problem. Bench: B Arizona’s bench so far has really only featured three consistent players: small forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and guards Gabe York and Mayes. Hollis-Jefferson, a freshman, has been a pleasant surprise for how quickly he’s adapted to the college game. The 6-foot-7 forward has also helped cover up the lack of depth by being able to play multiple positions, small forward and power forward, but also showed the ability to play shooting guard when asked, such as against Duke on Nov. 29. Good things happen when HollisJefferson enters the game, and if he can continue to improve, Arizona will only get stronger. York’s strength has always been his scoring. Whether it is shooting from long range or driving to the hoop, opposing defenses have to keep a close eye on the sophomore when he comes into the game, as he is capable of quietly scoring 20 points. While his defense was a concern last year, it’s less of one now. However, if he can’t stay strong on the defensive end, he will lose playing time in games where he has a cold hand, which will hurt the Wildcats as it will force head coach Sean Miller to play starters for longer minutes.

he 2013 Arizona Wildcats football season was certainly an emotional rollercoaster. It went from complacency to heartbreak, to extreme excitement followed by more heartbreak. But that’s typical of Arizona football. It was head coach Rich Rodriguez’s second season at Arizona. A thrilling win at the New Mexico Bowl was what fans were left with for a year. The Wildcats’ defense was coming off of one of its worst years and expected to return with more depth. All-American running back Ka’Deem Carey was expected to shatter records and be in the Heisman conversation. Not to mention the new Nike uniforms and a new multimillion dollar football facility. There were obvious high hopes for this season. But did the Arizona Wildcats produce? Was this season a success? The Wildcats are headed to Shreveport, La., for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. Going bowling is always a good sign. Although most Arizona fans probably hadn’t heard of that bowl, let alone Shreveport prior to this season, the match-up should be good. However, is it enough to make up for the heartbreaks of the season? The Wildcats went 7-5 on the regular season. It was a winning season. But there’s no question that a couple of those five losses could’ve been prevented. According to senior receiver Terrence Miller, the squad was quick to respond after messing up on the field. “Our season was a season of coming together,” Miller said. “Every time things didn’t seem to be going great, our team was very quick to rally and get on everybody, get what we needed to get done, win games and put us in the place where we are now.”

Remember the Washington State game? The game where the ZonaZoo section was nearly empty and Arizona lost — even when the UA fans thought it was going to be a guaranteed win. It was one of the biggest heartbreaks of the season. The following week, Arizona played against Oregon. No one expected the Wildcats to pull an upset that week. No one expected the Wildcats to roll over the Ducks, 42-16. But they did. They made headlines, and they made history. Of course, the next week, everyone expected them to play the same way against ASU in the rivalry game. But instead, they looked deflated. That one hurt. But should we dwell on all the heartbreaks? Senior linebacker Jake Fischer said he is leaving the program with no regrets from the season. “We gave it all we got,” Fischer said. “Obviously, there are a couple things if it went the other way we could’ve won more, but we’re happy with where we are. The young guys have grown up. The guys I came in with, the other seniors, to see them grow up as men — it is such a blessing.” There’s a saying that goes, “Shoot for the moon, and even if you miss you’ll land among the stars”. Arizona did just that. It was shooting for the moon but actually landed among the stars. The Wildcats are going to a bowl, Carey shattered records and it was still a winning season. So what if it wasn’t the best season imaginable? Maybe there were a couple heartbreaks, but, overall, it wasn’t a failure. After all, landing among the stars isn’t so bad.

Best sports moments of fall 2013 semester It’s been a semester of ups and downs for Arizona sports, but mostly ups. Sure, the football and hockey teams were defeated the last couple of weeks by archrival ASU, but the semester was good to the Wildcats for the most part. Remember when women’s cross country rose to No. 1 in the country or when hockey beat No. 1 and defending national champion Minot State? We do. Here’s a few of our reporters’ favorite highlights of the semester.

soon became a panicked and a dejected one after the Wildcats were upset at home by Washington State on Nov. 16. But all that changed the following week as Arizona saved face with a win over the then-No. 5 ranked Oregon Ducks at Arizona Stadium. Not only was it a signature win for the season, it was the game in which Wildcats junior running back Ka’Deem Carey cemented himself as the greatest running back in the school’s history. In the 42-16 victory over Oregon, Carey set four school records, most notably the all-time rushing and touchdown records.

volleyball BY rose aly valenzuela The Daily Wildcat

The match where the Arizona indoor volleyball team swept then-No. 1 USC, on Oct. 20, was the most memorable to cover. It was the first time in 20 years that the Wildcats had beaten a No. 1 team. Arizona knocked the Trojans out in three sets in McKale Center. Arizona’s defense was one of the best to witness during that match, as it didn’t allow USC to do much throughout the three sets. Following that match, Arizona entered the AVCA Top 25 poll, listed as No. 25, and improved from No. 30 to No. 17 in RPI rankings.

The win over Duke in the final round of the NIT Season Tip-Off was the best moment in all of 2013 for Arizona basketball. The victory showed that even for the elites of college basketball, no first-half lead is ever safe against this resilient Wildcats team. Also, with the game being played in New York City’s historic Madison Square Garden, Arizona proved it could outlast other top-notch teams on a neutral floor. That shouldn’t change if the Wildcats can escape the regular season injuryfree. Plus, no matter what, positive publicity is always a great thing. So, while this game doesn’t carry heavy implications for the rankings in March, defeating Duke on national television got hoops fans all over the country buzzing about the UA and it is the main reason Arizona is looking down on everyone in the polls. It didn’t exactly hurt head coach Sean Miller’s recruiting campaign, either.

Winter Break: What to Watch

swimming BY Nicole cousins The Daily Wildcat

Arizona swimming’s highlight came this past weekend when it wrapped up its fall season. Arizona swimmer Kevin Cordes broke his own American record in the 100-yard breaststroke on Friday at the Texas Invitational in Austin, Texas. The junior finished the race in 50.70 seconds, .04 seconds faster than his previous time. His teammate, Kevin Steel, finished in second place, almost two whole seconds behind him (52.58). Cordes, who has proven to be the dominant breaststroker at the collegiate level, also holds the American record in the 200y breaststroke (1:48.68), which he broke during the NCAA Championships last March.

Q & A Famed Flutie on bowl, Heisman BY MEGAN COGHLAN The Daily Wildcat

Doug Flutie is a legendary quarterback who has won the Heisman Trophy, was an AllAmerican, a Grey Cup MVP and a College Football Hall of Fame member and has 57,874 NFL career yards to his name. He was also the first major college football player to pass for more than 10,000 career yards. Flutie starred as the quarterback for Boston College, Arizona’s upcoming opponent for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. In 1984, he threw the game-winning Hail Mary pass into the endzone against the University of Miami with six seconds on the clock, a famous play he continues to be well-known to this day. Flutie is now a college football analyst for ABC Sports and ESPN. The Daily Wildcat had the chance to speak with Flutie about the upcoming bowl game and his thoughts on the future of Arizona football. How do you think Arizona’s upset of Oregon a few weeks ago is going to impact the Wildcats in the future? It’s a huge win — that’s a marquee win — and you bring attention. When you have the opportunity to knock off a team like Oregon, right away, you give yourself credibility. Guys want to be in a position, when they decide where they’re going, … to play for championships — conference championships and national championships. And with that comes the credibility, and the kids get excited about it. Of course, Oregon is such a high profile program. They’re the colorful program with the uniforms and everything else that the kids love.

Where do you see Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez taking his team in the next three years? I think [Arizona is] going to be in the mix. The whole conference has gotten stronger, and that’s where the issue is coming. You can improve your program and you could be doing some great things, but all of a sudden you see UCLA is stronger, Stanford is a powerhouse, Oregon’s a powerhouse, USC got their act back together, Arizona State is strong. I think [Arizona is] headed in the right direction. I think they’re going to be in the mix as far as being competitive for it. To win your conference is just not easy. Who do you think is going to win the Heisman Trophy? Do you think Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey had a chance among all the other contenders even though he’s not in the mix anymore? [Carey] deserves to be in that conversation with everyone else that’s in the conversation, there is no doubt about it. He had an unbelievable year, putting up the yards, everything else, carried the football team as far as being the guy the team leans on. Right now, I think because of his national attention, Jameis Winston is the definite front runner, and then there’s everybody else. Anybody out of that mix could be the No. 2 guy. On that note, with the AdvoCare V100 Bowl coming up and the battle between two top leading rushers, Andre Williams and Ka’Deem Carey, who do you think might play the better game? It’s two totally different types of running attacks. [Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez] has always

Casa España / Casa Royale Apartments

been a “spread them out” guy and will have them run the football. Andre Williams is a power runnertype guy. Boston College had their identity early in the year against Wake Forest in the fourth quarter. They lined up in three tight ends and ran the football the entire fourth quarter. I’m going to give the advantage to BC in that because it’s more of a power attack. BC’s biggest challenge on the defensive side is going to be athletically. So it’s the finesse running game against the power running game. What else do you think Arizona needs to know about this Boston College team? The number one thing is be ready to strap your helmet on, because BC has had a change in attitude over the last year. They are a much more physical team. If they handle the physical part of BC, then Arizona is more athletic. So, no game-winning Hail Mary’s? The game-winning play with five seconds to go would be an 80yard punt and run by one of the backs. It may be a quick game; the clock will be running the entire game. How familiar are you with Shreveport, La.? What kind of time have you spent in the city? I went there once for, believe it or not, a Canadian Football League game. The one aspect that I like about it is that the Independence Bowl [now the AdvoCare V100 Bowl] was one of the original bowls, and it’s been there a long time. I like the tradition of that. Other than that, get ready for some barbecuing.


FORMER BOSTON college quarterback and 1984 Heisman winner Doug Flutie sat down to chat with the Daily Wildcat. Flutie said he thinks UA football is headed in the right direction.

look out for in Chase Rettig? [Chase] is a talented kid, he has a very strong arm, throws the ball extremely well. Now that they have a running attack and they’ve got physical depth, he doesn’t
