NEWS | INFLUENZA

Students at risk during flu season BY AMIT SYAL @ASyal21

This year’s flu season has gotten off to an early start, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and college students are at an increased risk of falling ill. At this point in the year, six states have already seen widespread influenza activity: Alabama, California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada and South Carolina. In addition, seven states, including Arizona, have seen regional influenza activity as of Nov. 16. Being a college student comes with the risk of being more susceptible to the influenza virus. The close and constant contact with other students, professors and staff members on a college campus with a population of about 35,000 undergraduate students means a higher risk of getting sick. “The close proximity of the students, especially ones living in dorms and Greek houses, are more susceptible to any communicable disease, including the flu,” said Dr. Michael Stilson, a physician and interim co-executive director of Campus Health. So far this flu season, there have been deaths. A 90-year-old woman from Albuquerque, N.M., recently died from

the influenza virus, according to the New Mexico Department of Health. In addition, a 5-year-old child in Texas died from the influenza virus. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, the child had not yet recieved a flu shot. The agency warned that younger children can be particularly susceptible to this virus. The 2018-2019 season broke the previous record of the longest-lasting flu season. Last year, the flu season lasted 21 weeks, the longest in the last 10 years, according to CNN. There was a total of 61,200 deaths during the season, which lasted from November to April. Typically, most physicians recommend getting the flu shot at least two weeks before the start of the season, as it typically takes some time to build immunity to the influenza virus after getting the shot. “The flu shot is not perfect, but it is still the number one best way to protect yourself from influenza,” said David Salafsky, director of Health Promotion and Preventative Services and interim co-executive director of Campus Health. “Flu viruses have the ability to mutate rapidly, which is why you need a seasonal flu shot each year to keep pace with those changes and keep you protected.” The flu shot works by acting as an artificial, active means to “prepare”

the immune system for the real influenza virus. Each shot contains a combination of antibodies, attenuated virus strains and adjuvants, which are compounds that make the shot more immunogenic. Once given the shot, the immune system begins to produce antibodies as a response. Over time, the body has a repertoire of memory cells which can

“fight off ” the virus if and when the individual is infected later on. According to the CDC, only about 45% of U.S. adults get vaccinated with the flu shot compared to about 63% of children who do so. This year, given the rampant early start to the season, people around the nation are becoming more at risk for a potentially fatal influenza virus.

OPINIONS | #METOO

#MeToo movement never intended to go viral BY SELENA KUIKAHI @selenavanessa

T

arana Burke didn’t mean for “Me Too” to become a viral hashtag, let alone become the face of an entire cultural movement for survivors of sexual violence. The activist and social justice servant first introduced her efforts to the internet in 2006 via MySpace. From there, it floated around, supporting those who crossed paths with the slogan and Burke’s work until Oct. 15, 2017. Actress Alyssa Milano used the slogan without knowledge of its origins in a tweet regarding sexual violence within the entertainment industry, specifically referring to the thenrecent news about victimizer and producer Harvey Weinstein. From there, “Me Too” was turned into a hashtag that flooded the web and connected survivors worldwide. Burke graced the University of Arizona with her presence and wisdom earlier this semester at our very own Centennial Hall. Thanks to the Consortium of Gender-Based Violence, the Tucson community was able to hear her explicate the background of the movement, her thoughts on the new

generation of activists, the romanticization of movements and self-preservation for survivors. The chat began with clarifying rundown of the emergence of #MeToo as a viral development. Burke had been working with Girls For Gender Equity in Brooklyn, N.Y., where her work focused on ensuring that her colleagues were culturally confident and aware of the kind of people and environment they were dealing with. Her projects concentrated on childhood sexual abuse and how to recognize trauma, especially when distinguishing the differences in signs of trauma in white girls and black girls. This was important in recognizing tells of trauma and altering approaches situationally. Burke has been doing this work her whole life; #MeToo began on a t-shirt, and she realized the world needed to understand the work she and her colleagues had been doing and needed to get communities of color to talk about sexual abuse. After Milano unknowingly used the preestablished slogan, she reached out to Burke personally to apologize and ask what she could do to help. This led to an influx of celebrity involvement with actresses such as Gabrielle Union and Michelle Williams extending themselves in support of Burke and the cause. The gracious movementmaker made sure to emphasize that she

does not blame the white actresses that brought #MeToo mass-media attention for accidentally figure-heading themselves to the cause, but rather white media for (yet again) ignoring POC/black efforts unless for white benefit. Although the origins of “Me Too” are rooted by the efforts of black women, it didn’t receive white media attention until famous white women flagged down their attention. The Q&A seamlessly segued into personal kudos from Burke directed toward the latest generation of politically involved young people. “Young people are pushing back on respectability politics,” Burke gleefully praised. She made sure to include the fact that there is a lot to learn from the older generations and that she hopes our main takeaway is how to do things differently. Although she compliments this generation’s passion and ambition, she made sure to stress that there is a broad misunderstanding of what a movement truly is, especially in regard to organization. Rather than paraphrase, I will let her eloquent words stand on their own. When asked about organizing and what facets of it are romanticized, Burke giddily answered, “Ha, the whole thing! What I have discovered in these last two years, what has become really clear to me, is that people do not understand movement. And if you don’t understand movement, you

definitely don’t understand organizing … If you think a hashtag is going to end sexual violence, you’ve lost your mind. Or, you really don’t understand what movement is or what the hashtag did. What it did was galvanize people around the world. It’s an amazing galvanizing tool, but it is not the movement.” She went on to say, “I tell people all the time that movements are long, they’re strategic, they’re thoughtful and they include multiples of different people doing multiple things, all working towards the same end. You need to study movement. These people that have built these movements that we are standing on are brilliant. We need to take some of that, shift it around or whatever, but not romanticize it.” I would like to extend a personal “thank you” to Tarana Burke for taking the time to come to the UA to not only further educate us on sexual violence, but also for offering clarity, words of wisdom, healing and encouragement to our own community’s survivors and activists. — Selena Kuikahi is a junior majoring in film and law

Aerospace company wins NASA grant, relies on UA talent BY SYDNEY JONES @sydney_jones21

Paragon Space Development Corporation won a $2 million contract award with NASA’s Tipping Point Program. The company specializes in life support and thermal control in space missions and works with many University of Arizona students and alumni. The contract will specifically focus on the Shape Memory Alloys for Regulating Thermal control systems in Space, or the SMARTS radiator. Paragon will be working with other experienced teams around the country to develop a thermal control system fit for lunar and even potentially Mars missions in the future. Leslie Haas, director of business development at Paragon, said she is adamant about solving issues with sending people to the moon through the Tipping Point Program. “NASA sees it as a tipping point for it to

address a big issue that they’re having in whatever area,” Haas said. “In this case, what’s interesting about SMARTS is it can help them address the issue they have with surviving the lunar cycle.” Temperatures vary dramatically on the moon due to the lack of atmosphere, ranging from 260 degrees Fahrenheit during the day to as cold as minus 280 degrees at night, according to space.com. Since a single day on the moon is equivalent to 28 days on Earth, the lunar daytime is nearly two weeks long. “It gets really hot and it gets really cold,” Haas said. “What happens is nobody’s figured out a solution for that. We’re kind of all in a situation where a number of different people are trying to figure out how we’re going to solve all these issues that NASA has.” NASA and Paragon both want to see a future of lunar missions lasting longer than previous Apollo missions from dealing with temperatures on the moon. “We want to go send a man and a woman

up to the moon and we’ve got to solve a whole bunch of issues that have to be addressed so we can stay a longer period of time,” Haas said. Lily Gabriel is a senior in the Eller College of Management studying business management. She is one of 20 UA students at Paragon working on the marketing staff at the company. Another 17 students are engineers. “I was very excited to be a part of doing something that’s so highly inspirational,” Gabriel said. “It’s nice to be a part of something that’s making a difference.” Chad Bower is an engineer at Paragon and graduated from the UA 15 years ago. According to him, he was able to work at the company after hearing about it from his professor at the university. “I got this job because my professor came in and said, ‘Hey, how would you like to do some contract work for some space cowboys?’ I said, ‘That sounds like fun,’” Bower said. Paragon thought of student help long

before the company even opened, according to Haas. Tucson’s draw of the university helped bring the space development company to the city. “That’s one of the reasons why we actually picked Tucson, Arizona, when the company was started,” Haas said. “It was close to a good university that had good talent coming out of it.” Paragon has built a strong connection to the university with its readily-available talent and experienced professors. “We really like to use the university as a center of recruitment,” Bower said. “Bringing people in from the local community allows us to make and keep better ties with the university resources.” For a small company with big goals of designing new innovations in space exploration, more help is always needed. “When you have a plethora of great talent nearby,” Gabriel said, “I think that it’s naturally going to help a company innovate and succeed.”

Pathways to Teaching program partners with SUSD BY LAUREN BOOKWALTER @laurenbookwalt1

The University of Arizona College of Education is creating a new teaching certificate called the Pathways to Teaching program. The program is a partnership with the Sunnyside Unified School District to educate people connected to the district. Those people will become certified K-8 teachers working in the Sunnyside school district. “The great thing with this program is that these candidates are already connected to the district; they live there, they work there, they have graduated from there and/or they have children that are also attending Sunnyside schools, so they are already invested in the community,” said Maria Orozco, a professor at the College of Education. “They would fill in the teacher vacancies and/or they would have an opportunity to interview and fill those teacher vacancies upon completion of the program.” The program is for people who want to teach in grades K-8 but don’t have the money or the time for a regular undergraduate program at the UA. The candidates must be connected to SUSD in some way, whether they are a parent of somebody in the school district or an alumnus of the schools. Those eligible must also have an associate degree in elementary education and also have a GPA of a 2.5 or better. Students in the program must maintain a GPA of 3.0 to participate. The students involved in the program will also have a monthly stipend of $1000 to cover the cost of living expenses. The tuition will be covered by the program so students will not have to pay their way through college. The program lasts 17 months as opposed the two years it takes to be certified at UA’s regular program. Those in the program will have three days set aside each week for hands-on learning and student teaching in a school and will have a mentor coaching them on the side. At the end of the program, they will earn their undergraduate in elementary education with a teaching certificate for grades K-8. Students in the program will move in groups through their classes, relying on one another for class projects and creating a sense of community. Orozco said it’s important for teachers in the field. Orozco is one of the individuals that brought the program to life. Before working as a professor, she was a teacher in elementary education. The program will start in January of 2020 and there are nine students that will be starting with the program. In the fall of 2020, two students will be nominated from the program as Teachers of Record and will be on an emergency substitute certificate. In spring of 2021, one of the candidates will be placed in a classroom that has

a teacher vacancy. They will have the support of a mentor teacher but will also have their own class to teach. The state claims there is a lack of qualified elementary teachers, which is why programs like these are so vital to Arizona public schools. “I think what we are doing is providing a pathway for candidates who might not have had this way to get to the university,” Orozco said. “For some students, or for some of the candidates, it’s the financial piece of it … We have eliminated the worry of tuition cost and this program is also providing them that monthly cost of living.” The program is the brainchild of Marcy Wood, professor in the College of Education and director of Pathways to Teaching. Wood was also once a teacher in elementary education who decided to use her skills for the purpose of educating prospective teachers. She experienced something she thought was like the program in Albuquerque, N.M. several years ago. “I just felt like it was a perfect program, because I was in a classroom servicing a need while learning to teach and getting paid to do it so that I walked out of my teachers certificate with very little debt, and that just seemed like that’s what we should be doing,” Wood said. “There are a whole bunch of people that we know will be fabulous teachers that can’t become teachers because the financial constraints and the time constraints get in the way, and I just think that’s problematic. This is a mechanism to work around that.” Wood said she believes this model is the future of teacher preparation programs throughout Arizona. Wood has been working on this program since 2008 and has been pushing it since she has started at UA. She was given the opportunity to bring Orozco in on the process in January. Wood said she believes it has taken a while to get started because it is such a different concept of teaching. She had to convince and explain her experience to many people to get the program started. Kayla Minjares is one of the students that will be involved in the program January 2020 and learned about the program while attending Pima Community College. Minjares attended Sunnyside schools her entire childhood. “I want to become a teacher,” Minjares said. “I know a lot of people talk negatively towards public schools, but I grew up with good teachers ... I wanted to be making a difference to other students.” Minjares said public schools have a bad reputation because there are too many kids in the classroom and the lack of funding causes teachers to go out of their way to get necessary resources. Minjares said she believes that programs like these will make teachers feel more appreciated in the classroom.

Why the men’s basketball team is superior to years before BY JACOB MENNUTI @jacob_mennuti

Arizona men’s basketball has started its 2019-20 season undefeated, going 9-0 in the first month of the season. The squad has had a similar start as last year’s team, who also began the year 6-0, and the 2017-18 team that went 5-1 in its first six contests. The resemblance between the past teams can make this season’s performance feel not unusual for Arizona basketball. However, this year’s team has displayed several key factors that the previous teams lacked. Here’s why this year’s men’s basketball team is capable of escaping the dark postseason cloud that has hovered over the Wildcats in the last decade. Defense: One of the many things that separates this team from the bunch is its ability to play high-level defense. It’s a quality that Head Coach Sean Miller stresses in his team every year but is not often executed to his liking. This year’s team is much different compared to Arizona team that ranked No. 91 in defensive efficiency last season. While you can point to the Wildcats having a soft schedule to begin the year, Arizona held Illinois to 69 points and 31% shooting from the three-point line on Nov. 10. Illinois is a talented team with legitimate NBA talent, so keeping them in check was certainly a statement performance for Arizona’s defense. We all remember the 2017-18 squad that went 27-8 and won the Pac-12 championship with ease. The team was showcased by the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft, Deandre Ayton, and the now-New York Knicks’ guard Allonzo Trier. Arizona ranked No. 12 in the country in offensive efficiency that year. So why did that dominant squad get bounced in the first round of the NCAA tournament? The Achilles’ heel to that team was its overall ability to play defense. Arizona ranked No. 158 in defensive efficiency that year, proving that being successful in the postseason is only possible with a good defense. Shooting: Dominating on the defensive side of the ball isn’t the only thing that the Wildcats have been doing well this season. Miller made it an emphasis in the off-season to bring elite shooters to

the team when he assembled this year’s roster, and rightly so. Arizona shot an underwhelming 34% from beyond the arc last season, ranking No. 9 in the Pac12 in three-point percentage. Those shooting woes have proven to be a thing of the past, as the Wildcats have knocked down 72 three-pointers this season, shooting 42% as a team despite the three-point line being moved further back at the beginning of the season. Six of Arizona’s players are shooting above 38% from beyond the arc, including transfer Jemarl Baker Jr., who leads the team at 50%, and freshman Nico Mannion, who has drained 16 of his 37 three-point attempts (43%) so far. Depth: The lack of reliable and consistent players was one of the key reasons why Arizona failed to make the NCAA tournament last season. Injuries to Chase Jeter and Brandon Williams, along with the departure of Emmanuel Akot in the middle of the season, derailed the season and diminished Arizona’s depth. The team got blown out by USC and UCLA without Jeter and then proceeded to drop the next five games when Williams went down with a knee injury. The Wildcats were forced to lean on some of its other players that simply were not ready for such a big role. This season is much different, with Arizona already showing off how deep they are at each position. The Wildcats are still capable of running a 10-man rotation even after suffering a seasonending knee injury to Brandon Williams and the dismissal of sophomore Devonaire Doutrive just a few weeks ago. Players like Max Hazzard and Jemarl Baker Jr. have kept the second unit together with their dependability early on. Baker has put up 26 assists while only turning the ball over three times this season, while Hazzard holds the fourth-highest field goal percentage on the team. Arizona possesses several bench players that can score and produce when needed, something that was nonexistent last year. Winning a championship and being successful in March takes more than just pure basketball skills. Regardless, the Arizona Wildcats are equipped with the talent to win a lot of games and are certainly in line to exceed the accomplishments achieved by the previous teams.

Students developing Alzheimer’s-fighting drug in class BY NOAH CULLEN @NoahCullen8

A new course at the University of Arizona seeks to find treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Pharmacy students’ 2020 class registration ended earlier this month with the opportunity to take the class, “From Chemistry to Cure.” According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.” There is an increasing prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease due to having a population that is able to live longer, according to Dr. May Khanna, the assistant professor of pharmacology at the UA. “As you age more, your system breaks down,” Khanna said. “Unfortunately, as it breaks down, it forms plaques in your brain. These misfolded proteins are causing havoc in your brain. As this breakdown happens, you start to get dementia; you start to forget things.”

According to the 2019 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures Report, the percentage of people with Alzheimer’s dementia increases dramatically with age: 3% of people age 65-74, 17% of people age 75-84 and 32% of people age 85 or older have Alzheimer’s dementia. These statistics provide context on the necessity of this class. It gives students a heavy real-world problem to solve. “The students have an Alzheimer’s causing protein target that they will pick during the course and will find compounds that virtually bind to this target,” Khanna said. “They will optimize these compounds with the help of chemists and pharmaceutical scientists and progress through the whole drug discovery path.” Students are hopeful to start a second section of the class should they get that far. “At the end of the course, some students will progress to the second

one teaches you that failure is good. I also hope that at the end, they will experience success and the spirit of entrepreneurship.” Regardless of the result, Khanna has underlined that the main purpose of the course is for students to develop as critical thinkers and entrepreneurs. Christina Carrillo, a senior in pharmaceutical sciences, is taking the class next semester. She commented on whether she has had experience with entrepreneurship. “Personally, I haven’t,” Carrillo said. “And I think a lot of us haven’t either, the people in my class. So I think it’ll be something interesting and new. But on the other hand, it’s something that we’ll be involved in within our careers whether we do pharmacy in a Walgreens or if we do pharmacy in the background of drug discovery.” For more information, visit alz.org.

phase to create a startup company to further develop the compounds,” Khanna said. After the drug discovery process, the students will meet with Tech Launch Arizona, the UA office that commercializes new inventions by researchers at the university. The selected students will pitch their ideas for a potential startup company to them, according to Khanna. At the end of the course, one group’s compound will be chosen. During the following summer, that compound will be sent to a contract research organization to be tested. At that point, the group will know whether or not their solution is worth pursuing, according to Khanna. “What I want is for them to be armed with the understanding of what it takes to go through this process,” Khanna said. “And one of the things that’s critical for the students to experience is failure.

Holiday season looking bright with Parade of Lights Tucson sprung into the holiday season on Nov. 30 with the 25th annual Tucson Parade of Lights. Downtown Tucson was lit with festive lights and holiday cheer as December desended upon the desert town BY DESIREE GUERRERO @des__guerrero

The 25th Annual Tucson Parade of Lights & Festival, hosted by Mister Car Wash, was held downtown on Nov. 30. The free event kicked off at the Jácome Plaza in the afternoon with pre-parade festivities to celebrate the holiday season. The pre-parade festival included food vendors, a classic car show and a tree-lighting ceremony presented by the mayor.

ARTS & LIFE | DOGS IN DENIM

Dogs N’ denim daring to learn BY MIKAYLA KABER @KaberMikayla

Fashion minor students at the University of Arizona are learning the tricks of the trade as they host and plan a Dogs N’ Denim Fashion Show. While these students are learning what it really means to work in fashion, they’re doing it all in a sustainable manner and for a charitable cause. The second annual Dogs N’ Denim Fashion Show is on Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. on the UA Mall. The students have been working the majority of the semester on designing capes for the dogs using donated, upcycled materials, as well as planning the entirety of the event themselves. According to Charlette Padilla, a professor of retailing and consumer sciences at the Norton School of Family & Consumer Sciences, after the event the capes made for the dogs will be auctioned off and proceeds will go towards Tucson’s Cause for Canines. General admission is free. “There’s two objectives,” Padilla said. “One was to teach about sustainability, because fashion is a really dirty business. [The] second was to learn basic skills in sewing.” Padilla said that, in general, she hates normal fashion shows because of how economically and environmentally unsustainable they are. According to Padilla, some fashion shows can cost up to $1 million per minute and are incredibly wasteful — but with dogs, they are easier, cheaper and a lot more fun. “They need to learn how to do events because they are fashion students, and that’s the way fashion sells — mostly through events,” Padilla said. The show is hosted by the class SCFC 215. The students are split into 10 groups and each group has to design and craft two dog capes. According to Holly Kramer, a student in the class, one cape represents an era or decade in fashion; for the first six weeks of class, the students researched the eras represented. The other cape is completely based on the group’s free design. According to Kramer, her group made a cape inspired by the Victorian era and another was Christmas-themed. Kramer’s group is also in charge of the media, so they are responsible for spreading the word about the event so people will attend. “Another group has social media and you know that is really important today, [because of] how many people use it,” Kramer said. “They had to make a UA Dogs N’ Denim Instagram, Facebook and they have a certain email for it.” The students are all responsible for lighting, scripts, thematic Winter Wonderland runway decorations, the silent auction and other various tasks that go into planning the event. “It’s a lot of communication between groups, which is a huge part of not only setting up a fashion show, but setting up any event,” Kramer said. According to Padilla, her students also learned to use Adobe software to create a program for the show. While the dog capes are the main spectacle, the students are simultaneously learning other soft skills that are necessary for the fashion world and any career field. “I am actually learning how to work in a group better,” Kramer said. “It’s really difficult, especially with a project like this. I’m kind of learning how to do a hands-on group project inside and outside of class.” One of the preceptors for the class, Claire Harders, has perspective from when she took the class last year and is now helping the current students with the event. According to

Harders, only eight people from a class of about 60 worked the Dogs N’ Denim show last semester. She said that this year was much easier and more rewarding for the whole class to participate. “It was a lot of experience with the outside world,” Harders said. “A lot of times when you get to these group projects, you know you’re kind of confined to what’s inside the university. But when you’re pushed to go out and do more with the community, it’s such a huge learning opportunity.”

Seniors guide UA to win

5/19

On a night where the heralded Arizona freshman class struggled to find a rhythm, two seniors proved to be the difference. Behind perhaps their best defensive game of the season, along with 20 points from Dylan Smith and 17 from Chase Jeter, Arizona pulled out a 73-66 victory in the championship game of the Wooden Legacy over Wake Forest, the Wildcats’ first non-conference tournament title since the 2014 Maui Invitational. “If Dylan Smith and Chase Jeter didn’t play the way they played tonight, I don’t know if we would’ve left here as champions.” said Arizona Head Coach Sean Miller after the game. Wake Forest looked ready early, taking a 1916 lead with 13:03 left on a 3-pointer by Torry Johnson. Despite being 277th in the country in 3-pointers made, the Demon Decons made three of their first four to start the game. Momentum began to shift in the first half on back-to-back 3-pointers from Max Hazzard, part of an 11-0 run to put Arizona ahead 30-23 with 5:58 remaining. Arizona didn’t trail the rest of the game, but was unable to put the Demon Decons away for good. With Ira Lee and Zeke Nnaji both picking up their fourth foul in the second half, Wake Forest was able to attack the paint. Nnaji picked his fifth up with 4:15 remaining, with Lee following suit less than a minute later. A layup by Johnson with 2:17 remaining brought the score to 66-61. A Nico Mannion jumper and free throws by Smith and Josh Green eventually putting things away for good. “We’re really resilient,” Mannion said. “We’ve got some tough guys that work hard and we all really just want to win. When everyone buys into that team game and works

hard, a lot of good things can happen.” Mannion finished the night with 9 points and 7 assists on 3-11 from the field, but was named MVP of the tournament for his strong performance over the three games, which included a game-winner on Thursday against Pepperdine. The freshman averaged 16 points and 7 assists for the week, shooting 51% from the floor. “It’s big,” Mannion said. “I wasn’t really thinking about that route, more about getting the win and playing as hard as I could. It’s more of a team thing at this point — we’ve got a big trophy we get to go home and celebrate.” While the team has relied on their freshmen most of the season, the group struggled for most of the night. Nnaji finished with his worst game as a Wildcat, going 1-5 for 5 points and fouling out. Green struggled to shoot the ball with just 8 points on 2-8 from the field, but had 12 rebounds. “We’ve got a deep team,” Smith said. “We’ve got a lot of professional players on this team. We have a lot of guys that play the right way and it makes it easy to play.” Jeter and Smith were also named to the AllTournament team for their performances this weekend. The duo each averaged 15 points a game, with Jeter shooting 77% from the floor. “Each of those guys have taken a different path,” Miller said of Jeter and Smith. “They’re older, they’re experienced. I’m proud of the way they played in a game of this meaning, and I think it’s going to be something we can really call on as the year goes on.” Arizona will have six days to rest and prepare for their matchup in Waco, Texas on Saturday against the No. 19 Baylor Bears. “To be able to go to Baylor and play well I think is going to be one heck of a task,” Miller said. “I think that this experience will have helped us.” Tipoff on Saturday is set for 10 a.m. on ESPNU.

ARTS & LIFE | GUEST SPEAKER

Minoru Yanagihashi talks internment and awareness Former University of Arizona professor Minoru Yanagihashi is releasing his next book, “The Japanese American Experience: Change and Continuity,” this spring to show the real suffering of Japanese Americans during and after World War II BY ELLA MCCARVILLE @EllaMccarville

History is closer to the present day than some may believe. For Minoru Yanagihashi, former professor from the University of Arizona Department of East Asian Studies and author of “The Japanese American Experience: Change and Continuity,” the history of Japanese American internment seemed like only yesterday. The Daily Wildcat interviewed Yanagihashi to learn more about his book, which is set to be released in spring 2020, and his expertise in Tucson’s Japanese American history. Daily Wildcat: What made you want to write this book? Minoru Yanagihashi: Because of my heritage and interest in it. I’ve always been interested in Japanese culture, Japanese history and Japanese Americans. DW: In Arizona specifically, do you have anything you researched? MY: There’s two of what the government called “relocation centers.” Gila River and Poston. Those are the two in Arizona. Then, when they were closed at the end of World War II, [Japanese Americans] had to scatter, and we call that the process of resettlement. Most of them returned to California because that’s where they came from. Most Japanese Americans at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack on Dec. 7, 1941 were living on the West Coast. That’s where they were all concentrated, but because of war hysteria and racism and the decision of the military and political leadership, the Japanese were evacuated. President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 and that formerly set in motion the whole evacuation of the Japanese Americans from the West Coast. Initially, half of California, Oregon, Washington and the bottom half of Arizona were declared to be military areas and all the Japanese in those areas had to move out. A few months later, all of California was also declared to be a military area. DW: How many Japanese Americans were in these camps? MY: Many critics — Japanese Americans — prefer to call it a concentration camp. I use the term internment camp. The terminology is important because it kind of gives you an image of the camps. Sometimes it’s called a relocation camp, government use concentration

camps, and sometimes it’s called incarceration camp. And even prison. To go back to the number of [Japanese Americans]: Poston was the largest internment camp of the 10 [with about] 18,000. Gila River had about 13,004, to put it in perspective. [At] that time, if you took a census, Phoenix would have about 65,400. Tucson will come next with about 30,800. That puts in perspective that these were really mini cities. They were huge. DW: What did people do in these camps? MY: Nothing. Yeah, basically nothing. That’s the problem. You get boredom, depression. Now, the way in which the government tries to relieve that problem was what they call the leave permit. You can leave the camp in two ways: You can have employment if you qualify. You have to be vetted and checked for your loyalty. And then if you could find [an] employer [that] will vouch for you, kind of sponsor you and provide you a job, then you could leave the camp. Another category was students, young Japanese Americans who could continue their education, college or university or vocational school for example, then they could leave the camp and continue. DW: What about Gordon Hirabayashi [a Japanese American convicted of resisting the curfew imposed on Japanese Americans following the bombing of Pearl Harbor]? He was a senior at the University of Washington. MY: I talked with him when he came down here. The recreation site [Catalina Federal Prison Camp in the Coronado National Forest] is named after him. Gordon was actually arrested. DW: For breaking curfew, right? MY: Yeah. He became famous because he challenged the government about [the curfew]. [It] infringed on his constitutional right to serve out his sentence when the Supreme Court, you know, who’s against him. He decided he did not want to serve [out] the rest of his [sentence] in Spokane, Washington. He didn’t like the setup there. So he … requested another location, and the official says, “Well, there’s an opening in Tucson,” and he said, “I’d like to … be transferred to Tucson.” So that was fine. However, the government didn’t have funds. So how did they get him to go to Tucson? Well, they don’t, and [Hirabayashi] wanted to get out of Spokane detention. So he says, “Well, I’ll hitchhike,” which he did. [Hitchhiking] took him two weeks.

COURTESY MINORU YANAGIHASHI | THE DAILY WILDCAT

MINORU YANAGIHASHI IS A former professor from what is now called the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Arizona. His book, “The Japanese American Experience: Change and Continuity,” comes out in the spring of 2020.

DW: He hitchhiked to go to prison? MY: Yeah, it sounds really amazing, laughable actually. It took him two weeks and he reported in to the camp. [The camp guards] said, “We can’t take you. We don’t have your papers.” He said, “What am I going to do? I can’t hitchhike back, it took me two weeks.” They argued about it for a while. They said, “Why don’t you do something? Why don’t you go to a movie?” He said “Okay.” So he went to Downtown Tucson and took in a movie. After that, he returned and they said, “We found your papers.” DW: What are the themes in your book? MY: Trying to explain and describe the experience of Japanese Americans. So [with] that, hopefully, I’ll be able to at least describe so that people will understand the suffering as well as the contributions left by the second generation. Because I’m a secondgeneration [Japanese American], almost the last of the bunch, I thought I could speak for my generation.

OPINION | LOCAL ART

Beautifying gentrification in Tucson BY NATHAN GOSNELL @DailyWildcat

O

n the corner of Sixth Street and Fourth Avenue, the ruins of the Flycatcher stand surrounded by fencing. Now a construction site, the space is the future home of a multi-unit residential complex. Initially marred in controversy, the proposed building was met with neighborhood resistance and speculation about its zoning designation and purpose. The Union on 6th development appears to be on a set track to becoming another high-rise housing complex. Despite comments by developers Greystar Real Estate Partners, who worked on the District on 5th building, fears are still present that the Fourth Avenue development will end up as another student housing development for Tucson. With only a designation for local businesses to have priority for the ground-level retail space put in place, the development has taken little into account for the surrounding

community and only business interests have won, albeit minor. Like many other new highrises in town, it is targeted towards a ‘young adult’ crowd. It is in all facets another case of gentrification, now present on the Historic Fourth Avenue. After the demolition of the Flycatcher ended, in an effort to fill in the void and brighten the community, an event was set up. PaintStock, a celebration of Woodstock’s 50th anniversary, was created to invite artists to collaborate on various murals for the space. Some of these murals were hung up on chain link fences, essentially barring view into the construction site. In-between the hand painted panels hangs an advertisement for the future building, a sleek design amidst the historic street. Since the event, seven of the murals have been stolen and another business, the 4th Avenue Delicatessen has announced they’re closing their doors. Cut from the chain-link fence, the most recently stolen mural vanished and left a gap in the fence, revealing the construction sites interior. While intentions of beautifying may come from a good place, the efforts to cover up reality push away the issue and give destruction an easier entry. Distracting from the eyesore that is a

construction site softens the view of the impact that construction has. The site of gentrification is turned into a community location in transition covered up by murals and reconfigured as a community space until the building is complete. In this process, gentrification gains a helping hand as resistance is converted to a false sense of community that turns the bare walls into places of art too pretty to be harmful. While it’s hard to resist the temptation to revitalize a space producing a void in the community, spaces of construction and gentrification aren’t dormant. They’re active sites of conflict that can’t be concealed. Bones of buildings toppled over and replaced still lay in the site, and whether pleasant or not, they are an active reminder of the community’s destruction. Without it, gentrification is given an inconspicuous entry painted over by murals. Murals should not act as an attempt to beautify the destruction of a community. It gives developers an easy means for transition. Developers are given the opportunity to claim they compromised with the community, and in the end, the art is repurposed as a tool and weapon of gentrification. Where murals do exist in spaces of gentrification, they should be active

voices of resistance, something not possible when they are raised in partnership with the gentrifiers. Neighborhoods aren’t about aesthetics, they’re built from communities. Sites of destruction should not be painted away only to soften the blow of gentrification. Art made to beautify in the place of active upheaval only turns eyes away from the change being undergone. It gives gentrification a soft spot and fills it with murals so the passerby doesn’t have to interact with it or acknowledge its destruction. With businesses continuously being pushed out, like the recent announcement from the 4th Avenue Delicatessen, who cited construction as a main detriment for business, the plan of action has to be resistance and not concealment of the active gentrification at hand. Seeing a community being actively torn apart is difficult, but covering the wounds until they’ve been replaced only helps those tearing it apart in search of profit.

These were not the sorts of shots students are known for taking on the basketball court. Two University of Arizona Police Department officers arrived at the Campus Recreation Center at around 8 p.m. on Nov. 14 after receiving reports of students drinking alcohol at the Rec Center’s basketball court. The officers spoke with the manager of the Student Recreation Center and were escorted to the indoor basketball court. There they spotted two students standing near the doorway holding Polar Pop cups from Circle K. One of the officers noted that he immediately recognized the smell of alcohol coming from the cups, which held a bluish-greenish liquid. The officers ordered the students to stop after they tried to walk away from the basketball court and spoke with the students separately. The first student told one of the officers that there was alcohol in the cup and that he was not yet 21 years old. The officer read him his rights and asked specifically what sort of alcohol was in the cup. It was “Tres Locos,” according to the report. According to the report, the first student initially said that he had consumed a beer before coming to the court and had not been drinking alcohol at the Rec Center but then admitted that he had lied and he had been drinking on the court. The officer described him as “compliant and apologetic” during their conversation. He cited and released the student for minor in possession and gave him a court date. The officer who spoke with the second student described him as having “glassy” eyes and smelling of alcohol. The second student said that UAPD had already contacted him

Threats online can be just as serious as threats in person — especially when a person makes their living online as an Instagram influencer. A UA student met an officer in the lobby of the UAPD station on Nov. 15 at around 10:30 a.m. to report that she had been receiving strange messages and online harassment. The student introduced herself to the officer and explained that she is an Instagram influencer and uses her social media page to promote products. Earlier that morning, she received a text from a number she didn’t recognize that included screenshots from a different conversation between the sender and an unknown number, one that had been blurred out in the screenshots. According to the report, the person with the unknown number in the screenshots believed the sender was actually the student. The unknown person said they were going to press charges against the student for “money fraud and blackmail.” The student said she blocked the sender’s number. But she later received another, similarly suspicious message from a new number that said, “Ain’t that crazy I told you something was gonna happen the other day and you said you don’t care?” according to the report. Based on the wording of the second text, the student said she believed she knew who was behind this. She told the officer that a man began to direct message her a few weeks ago on Instagram, where he got her Snapchat information and phone number. She said he wanted something more out of her but that she told him she was not interested in any sort of romantic relationship. He reportedly responded by saying that he would “ruin her life.” The student had already blocked the man on all social media, as well as his phone number. She did not know much about his whereabouts because they had only spoken online. The officer entered the screenshots into evidence and called both phone numbers, leaving messages when nobody picked up. Later, the student emailed the officer and told him she had received a text from a different number that accused her of having a friend pretend to be a police officer. The message also

them to call him back and to stop contacting the student. Most college students would consider themselves lucky to have a few bucks in their wallet, but finding cocaine might not be quite so exciting, especially when the cops are involved. A UAPD officer met with the front desk manager at Coronado Residence Hall, who has an eclectic collection of found items that she wanted to report to the police on Nov. 13 at around 10 a.m. The desk manager handed over a lanyard, keys and a wallet to the officer and told him the items had been turned in by an anonymous student who found them on his bike. When she searched the wallet for some form of identification, she found a small baggie of white powder. The officer noted in the report that he also suspected the powder was cocaine. A field test revealed that the substance did indeed test positive for cocaine. The keys turned in with the wallet had a dorm key on them. The desk manager found that it belonged to a student living in Likins Residence Hall. A second officer joined the first as they met with the student in his dorm room. The first officer asked the student if he had lost his keys, to which the student responded that he had. The first officer read the student his Miranda Rights and continued to question him. He showed the students a photo of the lanyard, keys and wallet and asked if they were his. The student said they were and that he may have lost them outside Coronado last night. The officer asked if he kept anything in the wallet, to which the student said he did not. He kept his cards on a sleeve on his phone. He showed this to the officers. The first officer asked to see the students identification and the student handed over his CatCard. But the officers saw what looked like another ID in the card sleeve and asked to see that. The student said that it was “not real,” according to the report. The officer then informed him that they had found cocaine in the wallet. The student said that he did not know how it got there or who it belonged to because he did not use cocaine or know anyone who does, according to the report. The officers cited and released the student for having a fictitious ID.
