WITH BASKETBALL tournaments approaching, Ashley Pradetto, a pre-journalism sophomore, James Hosobe, an East Asian studies junior, and Manny Villegas, a mathematics senior, practice on the UA Mall on Monday for UA Cheerleaders and Mascots tryouts in April.

The new ASUA club Aspiring Women Professionals hosted a panel called “Women in Business” on Monday evening in the Student Union Memorial Center, where Eller College of Management graduates discussed how they achieved their goals. Aspiring Women Professionals was started by communication senior Chloé Cavelier d’Esclavelles and business administration senior Cassandra Ott so women could have a place to come together and learn from professionals in the field. Ott said one of her main reasons for starting the club was because of the inequalities she saw in the workplace. “It was horrifying to see women making less money,” Ott said. “Women were promoted based on things they had already accomplished and men were promoted based on their potential.” Cavelier d’Esclavelles and Ott plan on bringing in speakers from the community once a month. The panel featured Kristel Johnson, an entrepreneur and co-founder of Isabella’s Ice Cream, Nicollette Daly,

The Arizona Student Unions will introduce its first mobile food option to students this fall. The food truck concept was created last August as a response to the recent national trend of food trucks, as well as the genuine interest that the UA community has shown, according to Jason Tolliver, director of Arizona Student Unions. Not only is it a fresh concept to campus, Tolliver said, but it will also assist the student unions in serving other parts of the campus community, due to its ability to move from location to location. The unions are hoping to engage the truck in campus events throughout the year. The food truck is a studentdeveloped concept, just like other additions to the student unions, including Sabor, IQ Fresh and Core. This idea was approached in the same way, and is designed specifically to engage students, Tolliver said. “We talked with the students in Dr. Jackson Boelts’ art class about creating potential concepts for the food truck,” Tolliver said. “We’ve narrowed it down to three, which are now

down in the food court at the union, to get students’ feedback on what they think about the concept.” Tolliver said there is a voting booth set up in the Student Union Memorial Center that will allow students to provide their opinions. The voting booth will be in the union until the end of next week. There will not be a specific

menu for the food truck, Tolliver said. Instead, the menu will go through different rotations based on student demand for specific foods. Robert Nelson , a global studies sophomore, said he eats on campus twice a day and would definitely make use of the food truck as long as it accepted CatCard money as a form of payment.

PRESIDENT ANN WEAVER HART SPEAKS about the executive budget proposal at the faculty senate meeting on Monday. Hart is working with Gov. Brewer and other university presidents to push for more higher education funding.

Arizona’s executive budget proposal to fund a private, non-profit research organization through the UA is a “bridge to nowhere,” UA President Ann Weaver Hart said at yesterday’s Faculty Senate meeting. The proposal suggests $15 million be allocated to the UA to be disbursed over five years to the Translational Genomics Research Institute, or TGen, an independent institute that specializes in medical research. “It isn’t funding for the U of A, but it leaves the impression that it is,” Hart said. “Not one nickel of those dollars has any impact on how the university fulfills its mission. … It’s literally a passthrough.” The money would only benefit UA faculty members who might be working on research projects with TGen, not the university as a whole,

Hart said. The UA’s funding request presented to the Arizona Board of Regents last semester included $15 million for mission-specific funding, which refers to hiring faculty and supporting biomedical research, among other projects. Hart reported to the Faculty Senate that Arizona’s three state university presidents and members of the board of regents will continue to push for the original $700 million recommendation for higher education funding. Hart said her colleagues, especially president of Arizona State University Michael Crow, agreed that the UA can’t be excluded from the funding proposal. “We’re not whining,” Hart said. “We’re talking about the future of the state and the future of the citizens of our nation … and that’s the approach we’re taking.” Hart said that the governor’s budget focused on the recent scandal surrounding Arizona’s

HOROSCOPES Today’s Birthday (01/28/14). It’s important to speak out and contribute this year, and also to get silent and lost in mindless diversion. Balance this to great success. Follow your highest ideals while having fun. Financial gain comes from following your heart. One door closes and another opens around romance after the June 10 eclipse. Care for family and yourself with love. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18) — Today is a 6 — Don’t fall for crocodile tears. Review plans in confidence. Identify new resources. Note financial shortages. Take two days for private meditation, as much as possible. Slow down and contemplate. Something’s coming due. Rest up to provide it.

Gemini (May 21 — June 20) — Today is a 6 — Figure the costs in advance. The more careful you are with the details, the better you look. You agree to disagree. Express differences respectfully and admit when you’re wrong. That’s appreciated. Don’t rush it.

Aries (March 21 — April 19) — Today is a 6 — Proceed with caution over the next two days. You may have to make an abrupt decision to save the day. Imagine the problem already solved, and then take the natural steps to arrive there. Keep a secret.

Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22) — Today is a 7 — Soak in the love and enjoy the moment. Things are about to get busy soon. You’re going to need all your stamina. Profit from meticulous service. Make investments later. Rest, relax and think it over.

Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22) — Today is a 6 — Prepare for confrontation and consider all possibilities. Your routine could get disrupted, but there’s more time to relax, today and tomorrow. Handle chores. Pamper yourself along with your sweetheart. Share something delicious.

Taurus (April 20 — May 20) — Today is a 6 — Go farther than ever over the next two days. Unexpected bills arrive. Reach for something you might normally avoid. Try using the opposite hand that you normally use. Explore culture, philosophy and history. Get adventurous.

Cancer (June 21 — July 22) — Today is a 6 — Maintain conscious awareness of your environment. Discover romance, today and tomorrow. You’re likely to be busy, so spend cuddly time with family every opportunity you can. Let a partner or friend do the talking.

Pisces (Feb. 19 — March 20) — Today is a 6 — Check public opinion today and tomorrow. An uncomfortable moment could arise. Something’s not working right. Friends offer comfort and advice. Avoid blind reactions. Break the old mold. Today and tomorrow are good party days.

Tech has place in higher ed BY Mackenzie Brown The Daily Wildcat

I

dare you to try to count the number of times you have been on the Internet within the past 30 minutes. Try remembering how many times you’ve glanced down at the shiny iPhone superglued to your hand, or used that tablet to “take notes” during class. I don’t pose these questions because I resent technology — I am just as guilty of constant device-use as any other college student. It’s our educators who need to come to terms with this trend. Many professors ban the use of laptops or tablets in class, and speak longingly of the days before “eBooks” and “online homework.” But they’re missing a key piece of the picture: Online is opportunity. Pearson released a survey this month titled “Grade Change.” The survey examines whether we are embracing the digitalization of our higher education system by looking at the attitudes of professors and educators, rather than those of students. Despite the wealth of resources available online, the survey points to a crowd of educators stuck in the past, as 34 percent of those polled said online learning “was not critical to their long term strategy.” This is disheartening, considering the survey also reported that almost 7.1 million students in the U.S. are taking at least one online course. The numbers show that students are embracing online education, but educators haven’t yet learned that there are more resources and greater flexibility available online than in a typical classroom. For instance, look at the success of sites such as Khan Academy, which provides simple yet effective tutorials on everything from elementary algebra to differential equations. Students are not trapped in a 50 minute class period. They can view materials as many times as they need and engage in online discussions with their peers to solve complex problems. If Khan doesn’t work for a student, there are thousands of other sites and tutorials available for free online. Moreover, online learning can be self-tailored; if you want to take a class at 3 a.m. because it’s when you’re most awake, you can. If you don’t understand a math problem, you can watch an instructional video more than once. Learning is not the same for every student, and online education can be adapted to each student’s distinct learning style. And yet, traditional college classes are still defined by the lecture format — a completely antiquated method of teaching that better corresponds with the era of manually catalogued library books and late nights spent poring over dusty textbooks. Professors who still rely on the “face-to-face” method of teaching are skeptical about online learning because it creates a “disconnect” between student and teacher. But this “disconnect” is already prevalent in 400-plus person lectures. Ashley Lykins, a pre-pharmacy freshman , said she has similar feelings about teacher-student engagement in large lecture classes. “I think it really depends on the professor,” she said, “but for the most part they just talk at you.” It is time for higher education in the U.S. to move forward and embrace the resources available to us through digital classrooms and online learning. If professors are worried they will lose the intimacy of a “real” classroom setting, they have yet to discover webcasting, Skype or FaceTime. If they are worried about the efficacy of their teaching, it’s because they have yet to realize that the Internet is a massive ocean of untapped resources and educational opportunities waiting to be explored. Online learning does not diminish the efficacy of good educators, rather, good educators take advantage of the opportunities presented by teaching in an online setting and using digital integration in a physical one. Our generation of students is the most plugged-in to ever attend college, but this doesn’t have to pose a threat to the professor who is willing to adapt. It’s an opportunity to explore the possibilities of putting more classes online, of embracing the digital era and of reconditioning the old teaching system to meet the growing needs and demands of its students.

In response to “Chris Christie’s gotta pay the troll toll” (by Nick Havey, Jan. 26) People are paying so much attention to this. Looking throughout history shows that just about every politician has had some type of shady dealings or scandal. It almost appears to be politics. Lincoln bribed and blackmailed his way through the Emancipation Proclamation, does that mean it was wrong? Maybe ... but because he took that first step our world is a better place. Chris Christie is no Abraham Lincoln, but he gets things done. And from what I have seen, he has been one of the best governors that New Jersey has had in a while considering what has happened while he has been in office. When it was discovered what Lincoln had done we didn’t scrutinize — heck, he is still called “Honest” Abe — so what’s the fuss with Christie other than the fact that he is still alive and that he is still in office? He already apologized, took appropriate measures against the “culprits”

and I as a Democrat would have voted for him in the last election had he been running. Depending on who the democratic nominee is in 2016 I would still think about voting for him, even though I despise putting my faith in someone I have not met. — William In response to “Dispute blazes up over marijuana legalization in Arizona” (by Ethan McSweeney, Jan. 26) I am 73 years old and have used medical marijuana for three years. I signed up in order to get high. But the wonderful thing is that it really does work. Severe arthritis and Alzheimer’s would have put me in a nursing home. Improvement was slow at first and I wasn’t expecting more than the usual weak herbal supplements. But now, after three wonderful years, my arthritis is 90 percent improved. I stopped HydroCodone two years ago and haven’t needed a NSAID for the past week. My memory has improved. Three years ago I was forgetting medications

two or three times a week. Now, I have fewer medications and never forget. But I remember my prior forgetfulness and the process of remembering seems almost physical, like being physically aware of breathing. The best part is being high for the past three years. To me, it is an extraordinary Grace. Being high is another word for transcendence. Not the rare, exalted transcendence of the Christian Mystic or Buddhist Monk, but an everyday transcendence for the least among us, the pot heads and the slackers, the ill and infirm. And all humanity in turn. — Robert Bender In response to “Reefer sadness: marijuana legalization is the total pots” (by Katelyn Kennon, Jan. 26) What about the tremendous harm of the alternative, keeping marijuana illegal? Are you really suggesting that continuing to waste our tax dollars endlessly chasing down, arresting, incarcerating, and giving life long permanent criminal records to otherwise good people is better than gradual progress though legalization? We can’t afford to wait for perfection. No legalization bill will be

perfectly written the first time round. Through trial and error we can perfect legalization. The harm of continuing prohibition is the greatest possible harm of all. — Mike Shaw Of course the whole aim is to make money for those on the “top.” Why do you think it’s taken so long to legalize — because it is hard to regulate a plant and it has taken the government this long to come up with some money-making schemes. We are all educated; we should know by now that the government doesn’t make any move at any level the does not directly benefit them financially in some way. — JL Thorne In Colorado, you’re free to grow your own pot. So if you’re just too poor to buy pot from a legal authorized pot store, you should either quit (it’s not physically addictive, so that should be easy) or grow your own. This is just getting started. Thus the high prices. As more shops open, and, more importantly, as more product is grown and made available (don’t forget, the stores have to grow a certain percentage of their own product) prices for legal bud in CO will drop. — Jeff Johnson

Bread and Butter Opinions columnists get back to basics with Q&A on hot-button issues Macklemore’s “Same Love”: poignant or despicable? Kat Hermanson: Some out and proud queer folk say “Same Love” is just straight people thinking we need their permission to exist. We should push for more mainstream LGBTQ artists, but as a bi kid who had no outspoken queer or ally role models growing up, I appreciate the effort. David W. Mariotte: Macklemore, to quote Daffy Duck, ‘You’re despicable!’ Hip-hop wouldn’t hate you for being gay, but no one would blame it for hating you for erasing queer rappers. Angel Haze did it better. Nick Havey: I like “Same Love.” I don’t think it’s the social justice anthem we’ve all been waiting for, but I think it’s positive, anecdotal support of marriage equality and it makes me feel good.

Does Marlise Muñoz have the right to die?

Is it finally Leo’s Oscar year?

Brittany Rudolph: Yes. Valuing life means respecting Marlise Muñoz’s wishes and those of her family — not prolonging her death and causing her loved ones even more pain. Mackenzie Brown: After finally being taken off of life support, Marlise Muñoz is no longer the victim of conflicting state and familial interests. Shelby Thomas: The whole situation is so tragically sad. I do think that, in this case, the family’s wishes should be respected.

Eric Klump: After playing a rich bastard, a greedy bastard and a racist bastard, Leonardo DiCaprio is ready for gold with this year’s performance — a perfect combination of the three. David W. Mariotte: I dunno. We’re still months away from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” but so far, I’m pretty pessimistic about it. Eleanor Ferguson: Well, he disappeared into the ocean in “Titanic” and then woke up on a beach in “Inception.” I’d say he deserves an Oscar. Maura Higgs: I will win an Oscar before Leonardo DiCaprio does.

Should terminally ill kids be allowed medical marijuana? Kat Hermanson: Medical marijuana is as legitimate a medicine as any pill a doctor prescribes. It manages pain while simultaneously lifting mood and stimulating appetite — which could help with the emotional struggles both kids and adults feel when they are terminally ill. Mackenzie Brown: If we have the means to alleviate the suffering of terminally ill children, then we should certainly utilize them. Kasey Shores: Do we really want our kids smoking anything? Eric Klump: Yes, if only so I can see the edibles that will be marketed to kids.

A UA student reported that her belongings had been stolen on Wednesday at around 7:00 p.m. According to the student, her friend had picked her up and driven her to the Student Recreation Center. When the student said she did not want to work out on the elliptical, the friend threw a tantrum and left the rec center. The student received a text from her friend a few minutes later saying that she had left the student’s backpack, containing books, credit cards and a pair of pants, in the middle of Seventh Street before driving off. However, when the student went to the area, her items were not there. A University of Arizona Police Department officer called the student’s friend, who told the officer that she had dropped the property off at the student’s apartment. Shortly after, the student confirmed that she had received her missing belongings.

Falling for Fireball

A student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for underage drinking at 1:55 a.m. on Jan. 16 after being found intoxicated at Highland Market. The store manager called UAPD after seeing a student fall on her face and give herself a bloody nose. The store manager said she appeared to be drunk. The student told the officer that she had fallen because she felt faint. However, the student’s friend informed the officer that they had recently returned from a party at the fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha. When questioned again, the student admitted to drinking about two shots of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky at PIKE. The student smelled strongly of alcohol. The officer left the student in the care of her friend, who was sober.

Low speed crash

Two UA students were involved in a crash between a bicycle and a golf cart on Jan. 21 at 6:00 p.m. The bicyclist claimed that he was riding behind the golf cart going east on University Boulevard at about 10 mph when the golf cart slowed down. The bicyclist decided to pass the cart on the left, thinking the cart was going to turn right. Instead, the golf cart started to make a U-turn and hit him. The driver of the golf cart said he was going 15 mph and swerved to avoid a car parked on the side of the road, but remained in his own lane. He successfully avoided the parked car but instead hit the bicyclist, causing the bicyclist to fall into the golf cart. No one was harmed and the golf cart was undamaged, but the front wheel and frame of the bicycle suffered damage and may be unusable. The two students exchanged contact information and then continued on their way.

ROOKIES SHINE

Freshman forwards Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are key parts of No. 1-ranked men’s basketball team BY EVAN ROSENFELD

The Daily Wildcat Without the defensive contributions of freshmen Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson in Sunday’s game against Utah, Arizona men’s basketball could very well have suffered its first loss of the season. No. 1 Arizona (20-0, 7-0 Pac12) overcame a double-digit deficit during a sloppy first half to ultimately defeat the Utes 65-56. The rebounds proved to be the game changer, as the Wildcats struggled on offense but the freshmen helped extend plays. Gordon and Hollis-Jefferson combined for 12 of the team’s 20 offensive rebounds and contributed to the Wildcats’ 19 second-chance points. “They were monsters on the glass,” shooting guard Nick Johnson said. “If they can do that every night, or even every other night, it would be great for our team.” Gordon, the team’s starting small forward currently leads the team with 56 offensive rebounds this season and has pulled down a team-high 100 defensive rebounds. He also has 19 blocks, the 10th most of any freshman in program history. Hollis-Jefferson, the team’s sixth man, ranks second on the squad with 50 offensive rebounds and is averaging 5.5 boards per game. He compiled five offensive rebounds last weekend. Head coach Sean Miller said when the game becomes more physical, Hollis-Jefferson really has a chance to shine, calling him a “great talent.” “In a game like [Sunday night’s], it was perfect for Rondae because the more physical of a game it is, [the more] he’s comfortable — and you can really see it,” Miller said. While Arizona’s shooting against the Utes turned out to be subpar — 24-for-60 from the field (40 percent) compared to an average 49 percent accuracy over the UA’s first 19 games — the Wildcats compensated by relying on their defensive abilities to

out-rebound Utah 40-29. Although the Utes pulled down the same amount of defensive rebounds as Arizona, the Wildcats recorded more than twice the amount of offensive rebounds as Utah. “It’s tough, but [it’s] what we signed up for: to get at it and dive for loose balls. We’re warriors,” Jefferson said. “These guys depend on my energy and I try to bring it as much as possible.”

Johnson leads the way

In his third year playing for Arizona’s nationally acclaimed men’s basketball team, Johnson

has been thriving in his role as the team’s leader on and off the court. The Gilbert, Ariz., native is a huge reason the Wildcats have an undefeated record. In Sunday evening’s postgame press conference, Miller proclaimed that once again, Johnson was the best player on the court. “He did everything offensively and defensively,” Miller said. “He’s a terrific player right now.” Johnson, who scored a gamehigh 22 points in leading the Wildcats over the Utes, has improved his play this year. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard is

averaging 16.7 points (up from 11.5 last year) and 3.5 rebounds per game this season. “This summer I worked on my floater a lot and I’ve been using that a lot this year,” Johnson said. “That’s just one of the many things. With the team that we have this year, it’s a little bit easier.”

JUNIOR RUNNING BACK Ka’Deem Carey tries to break a Sun Devil tackle during Arizona’s 58-21 loss to ASU on Nov. 30. Carey’s hard running style has impressed NFL scouts, but it’s a question whether that will translate well into the NFL.

BY LUKE DELLA

The Daily Wildcat Tucsonans live in a bubble, a medium-sized city in the Sonoran Desert surrounded by little more than cacti and sand. For the past three years, once a week from August until December, Tucson saw one of its native sons break school records with ease. So to shine some East Coast light on former UA star Ka’Deem Carey, the Daily Wildcat spoke with owner and president of Drafttv. com Shane P. Hallam, a member of the Football Writers Association of America. What are your initial feelings towards Carey?

Carey is a very talented running back and can also catch and block well, but he’s not perfect by any means, especially in today’s game. He’s a strong running back, especially in the lower half of his body, and is one of the hardest to tackle in open space, which scouts love, but his quickness and breakaway speed is a concern. It’s fun watching him break away from tackles from 250-pound linebackers in college, but I have a hard time believing he’ll be able to do that as much in the NFL. So maybe a 5-yard run in college is only 2 yards in the NFL. So when you have guys who are maybe not as strong or good at breaking tackles but have speed like a Lache Seastrunk, [they] are higher

regarded or valued than a Carey. Besides his speed, what are NFL teams most worried about when it comes to Carey? It’s his wear and tear on his body. It’s not a huge problem, because when you draft running backs you’re not drafting for the second contract, you’re only drafting for the next four years. But two of the most important factors when drafting a player is their character and medical. [Carey] hasn’t had any medical problems yet, or at least noticeable ones, but when you have over 330 rushes plus the catches it’s in the back of your mind.

Q & A, 7

There was excitement in the air last Friday when Arizona baseball took the field for the first official day of practice, beginning the countdown to the season opener against Kent State just 18 days from today. Head coach Andy Lopez has resumed coaching duties following quadruple bypass surgery last October, despite missing out on the team’s fall season, he is once again ready to provide leadership to this year’s players. “He’s the same coach Lopez,” shortstop Kevin Newman said. “No difference. [He’s] high intensity and always expects excellence.” Newman said the mentality in the clubhouse is that anything short of a trip to Omaha (the annual home of the College World Series) would be considered a failure. “I expect hard work every day and for us to get better,” Newman said. “We’re trying to get better day by day, take it one step at a time and do our best to get to Omaha.” Junior pitcher Mathew Troupe said it’s nice to get the competitive juices flowing after a nice quiet winter break. He added that he thinks the addition of Lopez’s presence on the field will give the players, especially the young guys, a whole different respect for the program and our methods during practice. “Being able to have Lopez back out here is huge for the entire team and for the whole morale of the program,” Troupe said. “We’re all really excited.” While Arizona was left out

Arizona women’s basketball team is currently on an eight-game losing streak after dropping road games against Colorado and Utah over the weekend. The team lost 6847 to Colorado on Friday and 60-57 to Utah on Sunday. Arizona baseball did not make it to the Perfect Game USA preseason top 25 rankings. Pac-12 conference teams No. 3 Oregon State, No. 8 UCLA, No. 9 Oregon and No. 18 ASU made the list. The Arizona men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams were swept in the Bay Area over the weekend. Cal defeated the men 206-92 and the women 190-109. On Friday, Stanford beat the women 158-137 and the men 185-113. The weather conditions for the Super Bowl have become a major talking point. Coaches for the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks said that they are not concerned about game day, but are worried about the weather during practice week because they might not be able to prepare the way they want if they have to practice indoors.

JUNIOR CATCHER Riley Moore practices a pitching and catching drill during UA baseball practice at Hi Corbett Field, in the Wildcats’ first practice of the year.

of Baseball America’s top 25 preseason rankings this year, junior catcher Riley Moore and other Wildcats are willing to embrace their underdog status, and when given the opportunity, show the nation what they are really made of. “As a team, I can tell you that we don’t mind being the underdog,” Moore said. “Everyone can have their preseason rankings, but when it gets down to it, I think we will be one of the tougher teams in the Pac-12. Mentally, physically, we’re going to grind games out. Games that we shouldn’t win, we’re going to win, and we’ll find a way to do it.”

Arizona’s rotation expected to impress Arizona is looking forward to rebounding after a tough ending to last season saw the Wildcats fail to be selected for the playoffs, just a year after winning the College World Series. “Going from winning the whole thing and to have the exact opposite happen last year, it left a bad taste in our mouths,” Troupe said. “It definitely [motivates] us to

get back to a Regional.” Troupe added that a big reason for his high expectations this year lies within the squad’s pitching rotation. “We have a really good staff this year — probably the best staff I’ve seen since being here,” Troupe said. “So we’re really excited on the pitching front of things and expect to do a lot of damage on that end.” Arizona’s rotation is projected to feature senior right-hander James Farris as the Friday night starter, junior closer-turned-starter Troupe and junior left-hander Tyler Crawford. Farris, who was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 15th round of the MLB first year players draft, declined to sign and instead returns as the rotation’s ace. After spending two years in the closer role for the Wildcats, Troupe will look to break in as a starter. Crawford posted a 7-2 record last year and compiled a 3.83 ERA. Sophomore Tyger Talley, who went 4-0 with a 3.82 ERA last season, is another option to be a starter. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17

The No. 1 Arizona men’s basketball team made history Sunday night by breaking the modern school record for winning streak with 20 wins. The Wildcats beat Utah 65-56, and the win was Arizona’s 100th since 2010-11. Arizona also moved up to second in the latest NCAA RPI rankings, up from No. 3 last week. The Wildcats have been ranked No. 1 by the voters for eight weeks in a row. The UA men’s tennis team finished its opening home weekend 2-0 after routing UC Riverside 7-0 on Sunday. It is now 4-4 this year. Arizona women’s tennis dominated its home opener against NAU 7-0. This is its seventh consecutive opening day victory. Former Wildcat quarterback Nick Foles took home the Offensive MVP of the 2014 Pro Bowl award on Sunday night.

Q&A

FROM PAGE 6

Are Carey’s off-the-field problems from last year still a concern, or do you see it as a thing of the past? I haven’t heard it being a issue yet. Of course the off-the-field stuff will come up when he meets with NFL teams; it’ll be the first and the last topic of conversation. But it’s not a huge issue. Is there a current NFL running back who Carey is most similar to? Montee Ball is a good comparison,

or if you were looking for a more favorable player, maybe a Matt Forte. The way Ball and Forte run is similar to Carey, and how they quickly get their eyes looking down field and use their legs to break tackles is also similar. Last year you said Carey was a second-round prospect. A year later, where do you see him being drafted prior to his pro day and NFL combine? I still see him as a second-round pick. He’s maybe the third-best running back this year. That being

said, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the first running back taken or the fifth. It’s difficult when you have guys like Seastrunk and Carlos Hyde in the draft too. But [if] at his Combine, Carey runs a 4.5 or faster, he probably could be a late first and go to a good team.

Q If you mix different types

of alcohol do you get more hung over?

A. think it’s a yes based on negative personal experiences. The answer is no, but we can see how someone might

Some drinkers mix different types of alcohol one night, get sick or extra hung over, and blame the mixing. Hangovers are the result of drinking too much. You may have noticed that the more alcohol you consume the worse the hangover is the next day. Hydration also plays a big role in determining the extent of your symptoms the next morning. Dehydration occurs as a result of alcohol’s diuretic effect in the body, meaning your body has released more fluid than it took in. That part is an easy fix and we advise drinking water to hydrate yourself during and after consuming alcohol. Carbonated drinks (yes, beer has some carbonation) tend to irritate the lining of the stomach, and then you throw something else you ate or drank in the mix and your stomach goes urp. Some drinkers discover through trial and error that certain brands or types of alcohol don’t agree with them so your best bet is to avoid them. Sometimes what you mixed may not have agreed with your stomach and you may feel sick, but it isn’t a hangover. Some drinkers may have a sensitivity or allergy to particular types of alcohol thus creating a sick or nauseous feeling.

E H T N E WH

S K A E R B S NEW

Your question about mixing types of alcohol sounds similar to the saying “beer before liquor, never sicker.” While many drinkers swear by this motto, there is no evidence that the order you consume drinks or how you mix it up is going to make you more hung over. Again, the more common cause is too much alcohol, too fast. Pre-planning to avoid a hangover is your best bet. Eat dinner, drink water, then drink moderately at the party. That’s less than 5 drinks for the guys and less than 4 for females.

75% of UA students reported they haven’t gotten sick from drinking in the past 30 days. (2013 Health & Wellness Survey, n=3055)

Museum of Art wants to draw students in Originally shown in the museum’s conference gallery, the program outgrew the space and has since been moved to the second floor of the museum. Alongside limited viewing space, another concern UAMA faces is its hidden location on campus. Since the museum is tucked away in the fine arts complex, it’s frequently confused with the UA Center for Creative Photography or the Arizona State Museum. “While we love our proximity to the other arts departments, most students will never pass by our doors,” Miller said. “Furthermore, our name is similar to other museums in Tucson so that makes it difficult to distinguish ourselves. We are becoming more active in our marketing efforts and embracing social media in order to advertise ourselves. We also hope to reach out to more faculty from various disciplines to demonstrate that art can be incorporated into their curriculum.” According to Miller, the museum staff wants to include

The Daily Wildcat

The UA Museum of Art is retracing its history this year and hopes to draw new visitors along the way. Its theme “An Unfolding Legacy” focuses on showings from the museum’s permanent collection until March 2015. With less than 17,000 square feet of gallery space, the museum can only show 4 percent of its 6,000-piece collection at any given time. It makes use of its space with its 10 galleries, which can change around 20 times a year, according to Olivia Miller, the Curator of Exhibitions and Education. Because of the museum’s limited space, its staff have been inspired to find innovative ways of showing the museum’s collection. One of these solutions is the speaker series “Out of the grace pierson/The Daily Wildcat Vault,” which also runs through Olivia Miller, curator of the University of Arizona Museum of Art, said the museum is making an effort to draw in students with March 2015.

‘Philomena’: sentimental comedy Film follows the true story of a mother’s multi-decade long search for her lost son with equal amounts of laughs and tears BY Alex Guyton

The Daily Wildcat Based on the book “The Lost Child of Philomena Lee,” this film adaptation focuses on the true story of Philomena’s multidecade search for her lost son. Grounded by two fine performances by the lead actors, “Philomena” does enough to strike equally humorous and emotional chords. Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) is a government journalist for BBC when a scandal involving he-said, she-said e-mails results in his termination. While at a party — after telling his condescending peers that he plans use his newfound time to write a book on Russian history — he meets a young woman who says she has a story for him. Some 50 years ago her mother, Philomena Lee (Judy Dench), became pregnant while working in a convent in Ireland. Roughly three years after Anthony’s birth, the nuns unexpectedly adopt Anthony out without even letting his mother say good-bye. For these 50 years, Philomena has been searching for her son, but to no avail. Martin, who has a well-dressed, tempered cynicism, holistically declaims such “human interest” stories as pandering to the masses. Later that evening, though, realizing there’s nothing better to do with unemployment, he decides that journalism of any kind will do him some good. He agrees to meet Philomena, and thus begins their journey

The give and take between the two creates a couple of twists that feel unnecessary, there are also revelations here that will punch you the comedy, while the friction creates the drama. At times, Dench’s character seems in the gut with a solid blow. Apart from finding Anthony, the film has a touch too much; her gullible nature is the enough raw sentiment and tragedy to make butt of many jokes. However, we know that you legitimately feel for these characters. beneath this grandmotherly exterior is grief. Throughout, we are shown flashbacks of The actors exquisitely portray the strengths Philomena’s life, from when she met the and weaknesses in both characters.
