Student services fee decided this week By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Nineteen items for next years student services fee were discussed at Tuesday’s student services fee board meeting. Hotly contested proposals for an Associated Students of the University

of Arizona Book Scholarship extravaganza, which would offer $500 to about 55 need-based applicants to aid book expenses or paid mentorships in the Arizona Assurance Scholars program, were met with hesitance. Most appreciated the aims of the programs but agreed

they simply don’t having the money to fund them. Matthew Totlis, chair of the student services fee advisory board, said new programs like Alternative Breaks “caught (the board) by surprise.” Alternative Breaks, a program headed by the Center for Student

Involvement and Leadership will take 25 undergraduate and graduate students on a volunteer spring break trip. Other items were expected. “We got a lot of ‘save our program’ proposals,” Totlis said, noting his frustrations during the meeting of poorly-written and redundant

proposals presented. The state of the economy and the rising costs of college were on many of the board members minds throughout the meeting, as they noted every department’s budget is feeling the squeeze. FEE, page 3

SIFE fundraises for charity By Laura Donovan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The Students in Free Enterprise club hosted a fundraiser on the Mall Tuesday. All the proceeds from Tuesday’s event benefit SKRAPPY’S, a Tucson youth collective and community center for young disadvantaged artists to express their creativity. The band Rescue Lights performed for the fundraiser behind the Student Union Memorial Center. The Students in Free Enterprise club

has 125 student members on campus and does community service activities. “We do a variety of different community service activities around town, from working with SKRAPPY’S to working with refugees,” said Kourtney Nelson, the vice president of ethics for the Students in Free Enterprise club. Since the stage near the Student Union Memorial Center was overbooked, Rescue Lights could not play there as originally planned. “We hope to have another event this week,” said Brittany Verloo, co-president

for the Students in Free Enterprise club. Sean Garza, vice president of environmental sustainability for the Students in Free Enterprise club said the organization creates projects that require business skills. “We’ve taught refugees how to fill out job applications, we’ve told them basic English phrases, how to create budgets, just general life skills,”Garza said. The Students in Free Enterprise are also putting on the career expo in Bear Down Gymnasium from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. All 125 members of the organization will be working at the

career expo. There will be 37 companies from all different industries, including Pottery Barn and Apple. Last year 48 percent of students who attended secured job interviews and internships at the event. Students have the opportunity to be interviewed on the spot.

Brother Jed’s family speaks out By Laura Donovan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Martha Smock is graduating from high school this year. When she finishes homeschooling, she would like to join her father, known as controversial campus preacher Brother Jed Smock, on his campus visits. “When school starts up, I’ll travel with my dad for a year, and then I want to go to an arts school for graphic design and photography,” Martha Smock said. Martha and Priscilla Smock joined their parents, Cindy and Jed Smock to preach at the UA campus this week. “The University of Arizona is a typical college campus,”said Cindy Smock.“It’s pretty and there’s lots of sin.” Cindy Smock said that she enjoys preaching at the University of Missouri, which has a freedom of speech area on campus. The Smock daughters are used

to most college students’ negative reactions to Jed Smock, but they said repetitive discussion bores them. “It’s annoying when people say the same thing over and over again and they think they’re really original, especially if they’ve already said it that day,” said Priscilla Smock with regards to some of the onlookers who dispute with Jed Smock. The Smock daughters have been to college campuses all over the country. “Besides Alaska and Hawaii, I think we’ve preached in nearly every state,” Priscilla Smock said. The sisters have explored college campuses in different ways as they’ve grown up. “When we were younger, we had a blast on every campus,” Martha Smock said.“We’d bring our toys with us and slide down the banisters. Now, we pretty much just listen.” Martha Smock has been traveling JED, page 3

This spring, the UA launched a new student-recruiting program called P.A.W.S., which organizes parent and alumni volunteers all over the country. P.A.W.S. is an acronym for “Parents and Alumni Working with Students.” The organization provides three ways for parents and alumni to work with new students at the UA. A volunteer may choose to adopt a high school in his or her area and serve as a sort of adjunct admissions counselor for that high school. “Clearly, we are limited in numbers as to how many high schools we can hit with admissions counselors both out of our office and the people that we employ on the East and West Coasts,” said regional recruitment coordinator for the Office of Admissions Drew Braden. A volunteer could also choose to attend college fairs for the UA. Braden said the UA receives more than 1,000 college fair requests each year, and the Office of Admissions doesn’t have enough representatives to send people to all of them. “The more (college fairs) we can cover, the more visible the UA is going to be and the better we can market ourselves to students,” said Braden. “This is especially important in markets we may not already be well established in … we’d love to get alumni in that area or parents who live in that area to go out and attend a college fair for us.” The third opportunity is to reach out to newly-admitted students by offering advice or answering questions students may have. “Students in these places would feel that university is really looking out for their best interests,” said Alumni Association president and executive director Chris Vlahos. Parents and alumni who wish to be a part of P.A.W.S. will be provided with a list of recently-admitted students in their area so parents and alumni can keep in contact with new students and so they can feel comfortable asking questions. “The whole goal here is for that parent or that alumni to be the first person to actually reach out to that student and congratulate them on their admission to the U of A,” said Braden.“I try and give them a list (of students) near their geographic area … to give them something in common to talk about.” There are thousands of alumni across the country, and it would make them feel good to provide such an invaluable service to students, Vlahos said. P.A.W.S. is modeled after a similar program at the University of Michigan. Braden worked on the program’s research and development last summer to get the program ready for this year. “This will really save us a lot of money, and we’re able to reach further into the demographics and geographic locations we don’t normally go to,” said assistant director for the Office of Admissions, Ryan Burton-Romero. “(The other schools) realize, in the current economic climate, that universities aren’t going to be able to send the dedicated full-time admissions representatives,”said Braden. Vlahos thinks the program is a great partnership between the Office of Admissions and the Alumni Association. “We have alumni all over the country who would love to volunteer on behalf of the university,” he said.

Pre-business sophomore Have you noticed the recent surge of cat popculture? The musical “Cats,” or just cats in general? Cats in general. No, I haven’t. You haven’t seen the cat playing the piano? Well, I’ve seen things on YouTube. Just a couple of things on YouTube, but nothing outstanding in the news or anything like that. I’m talking more about the YouTube stuff. OK. Yeah. People seem to have started to think that cats are hysterical. Do you think that mindset has been around for a while? I don’t know. Maybe a little bit. I think it might be coming out now more than ever. Do you think that cats are hysterical? Personally, not really. But, that’s just me. Do you like cats? I do. I have a cat myself. What’s your cat’s name? Her name is Sally. Why Sally? Have you ever heard the song “Lay Down Sally” by Eric Clapton? I might remember it if I heard it. Yeah, that’s where it’s from. Does Sally ever do anything funny that you would think about putting on YouTube? No. She literally just sits around on the bed all day, and just sits there like a lazy little pile. Like a fat cat. So, your cat is not ready for the celebrity cat life? No. She chooses to be alone right now. Are you also a dog person? Love dogs. I have two dogs. Names? Carnie and P. Diddy. I don’t even have to ask about those names. Do Carnie and P. Diddy do anything funny? The funniest thing there is that P. Diddy, the small little Pug, is in control of the bigger one. A Pug and a Bernese Mountain Dog. The Pug absolutely controls the Bernese Mountain Dog. It’s just kind of funny to watch them play around with one another when the big dog is terrified of the little dog. Do you think P. Diddy has what it takes to be a celebrity dog? I think so. He’s kind of a diva, to be honest with you. He would fit in perfectly. If P. Diddy could be in any movie, what movie would he be in? If he could replace the “Men In Black” Pug, he would do that. So, he’s prepared to play an alien, basically. Yeah, just a sarcastic dog alien.

Microsoft replays Zune design for phone comeback BARCELONA, Spain — Apple Inc. rocked the wireless business by combining the functions of a phone and an iPod. Now, more than two years later, Microsoft Corp. has its comeback: phone software that works a lot like its own Zune media player. The software, which was unveiled Monday at the Mobile World Congress, is a dramatic change from previous generations of the software that used to be called Windows Mobile. But Microsoft is, for now, sticking to its model of making the software and selling

it to phone manufacturers, rather than making its own phones. Microsoft’s mobile system powered 13.1 percent of smart phones sold in the U.S. last year, according to research firm In-Stat. That made it No. 3 after Research In Motion Ltd.’s BlackBerry and the iPhone. But Microsoft has been losing market share while Apple and Google Inc.’s Android gained. All the while, the market is becoming increasingly important. People are spending more and more time on their phones, and

Hard-up EMI seeks buyer for Abbey Road studios

LONDON — The long and winding road of Beatles history has taken a new twist. Cash-strapped music company EMI Group Ltd. is seeking a buyer for Abbey Road, the London studio where the Fab Four recorded some of their most famous songs, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The person said talks had been going on for several months but a buyer had not yet been found. The individual spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are private. A spokesman for EMI refused to comment on the sale bid, which could raise tens of millions of dollars for the struggling label. Analysts said the sale price would be far short of the $165 million EMI needs to survive, and would mean giving up one of its most high-profile assets - not just a recording studio, but a tourist attraction and shrine for Beatles fans. “It’s like throwing sandbags off the crippled balloon,” said Adrian Drury, an analyst at Ovum Securities. “It is not going to help its cash situation that much. But EMI management are trying to desperately raise cash wherever they can, so the normal rules don’t apply.” EMI, whose artists include Coldplay, Lily Allen and Robbie Williams, has struggled financially since it was bought in 2007 for 2.4 billion pounds by private equity firm Terra Firma Capital Partners. EMI has fared worse than the other major labels — Universal, Sony BMG and Warner Music Group — amid the decline of CD sales and the rise of digital music downloading. Several big-name acts, including Radiohead and the Rolling Stones, quit the label amid the cutbacks and restructuring that followed Terra Firma’s takeover. Abbey Road may reflect tough times for recording studios. Technological advances that let musicians make sophisticated recordings on a laptop computer have put pressure on facilities like Abbey Road. —The Associated Press

Expo: ‘Best things I’ve done’ By Bethany Barnes Arizona Daily Wildcat

Students showcased the culmination of their research at the 23rd annual Honors Research Exposition. On Tuesday, 30 students presented research on topics ranging from music to international studies to engineering. These students were able to conduct their research through the Honors Undergraduate Research Grant fund. “(This is) one of the best things I’ve done in college,” said Belinda Richardson an international studies senior. “You learn so much about yourself doing research.”

The dean of the Honors College praises the program for its many students. “I think it’s fabulous that students are able to contribute so centrally to the mission of the university because we are a place that is about discovery. There are many universities where only the very fewest people at the top are able to be a part of that,” said Dr. Patricia MacCorquodale, dean of the Honors College. The grants are competitive, and several projects have resulted in students getting published, job offers and fellowships to graduate school, MacCorquodale said. Jessie Brown, a biochemistry and molecular biophysics junior, said she

had presented her research before, but the expo allowed her to experience talking to people who did not have a background in science. “The grant money allowed me to get out there without financial constraint, and it was a really great experience to go see these things,” said Austin Smith a history senior.“I’d only read about them before.” The Honors Undergraduate Research Grant fund distributes $40,000 every year to students for their research. Students do not have to be in the Honors College to be eligible. Applications are being accepted now. All applications must be in by March 3 at 4 p.m. A committee of faculty and students

with Jed Smock since she was a baby, and she chose to preach with her dad after she finishes school so she could spend extra time with him. “He’s 67 right now, so if I can have that extra year with my dad, it will be nice,” Martha Smock said. The Smock daughters are aware of most college students’ assumptions about them. “They believe we’re brainwashed — that’s the most common thought,” said Priscilla Smock. “Especially when we say we’re homeschooled.” Martha Smock said that homeschooled students are often stereotyped in different ways. “Others think we’re a bunch of farmers and have no social life,” Martha Smock said. But both Martha and Priscilla Smock will be attending their homeschool-organized prom. They don’t have dates, but it’s not typical for their homeschooled classmates to go with dates, Martha Smock said. The sisters are not allowed to date until they graduate high school, but they have several male friends. Priscilla Smock spends her Saturdays rehearsing for a performance of “The Sound of Music,” and her sister recently had a Super Bowl party. “We hang out with friends every weekend,” Martha Smock said. The Smocks will be at the UA campus until Friday. They will visit Arizona State University next week. “People shouldn’t feel sorry for us,”Priscilla Smock said.“We’re not sorry.”

know the wife’s stance on everything, but the family seems brainwashed, especially the daughters,” Hurd said. “I question if they really believe everything they say they do.” Students gave their insight on Cindy Smock’s preaching methods. “I think she is an extremist, and she’s really judgmental,”said Diera Gooden, a family and consumer sciences freshman. “It’s really sad to see her embarrassing herself like this.” Alex Budish, a journalism junior, has been to all Jed Smock’s visits this semester. “I’ve met Jed’s daughters, they’re nice, but preaching through hate will never work. Even so, they have a right to be here, and so do I,” Budish said.

Students’ reaction

Approximately 60 people gathered around Brother Jed’s preaching Tuesday afternoon. “I love coming here to watch Jed, it’s entertaining,”said Matt Anderson, a sociology junior. “(His daughters) must be crazy to follow him around, though.” Danielle Hurd, a family studies and human development sophomore, shared a similar view. “I’ve never talked to the family, and I don’t

$1.2M endorsed thus far for next year

continued from page 1

Many programs received recommendations for either partial or no funding, with requests topping $3.6 million and their budget for recommendations coming in at $1.2 million, onethird that amount. “(The board is) a really professional group and they take their job very seriously,” said David Heineking, director of UA Parking and Transportation Services. Heineking came out to lobby for disability cart services to fund the golf cart drivers who help temporarily and permanently disabled students get to class, a program which received about one-third of its requested funding. “It’s all for student money to support students,” said Juliette Moore, director of Campus Recreation. “If the student services fee (is) approved then we would get our money, but we don’t know that so you have to come out.” The Student Recreation Center was one of many programs that were recommended for partial funding. More than 40 people came out in support of their specific programs. Of the 19 items on the agenda, one was tabled, the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership’s Friday Night Live! Three were passed with full funding, Center for Student Involvement and Leadership’s Alternative Breaks and Career Services’ two proposals for outreach student staff and Web resources, six were denied and the rest given about one-third of their desired funding. The standing budget for recommendations is more than $880,000 for allocation to save older programs such as Savvy Student $3 Wednesdays at Student Union restaurants or new programs such as the ThinkTank. Nineteen more items will be discussed at a meeting on Friday. Those recommendations will then be sent to the Vice President of Student Affairs Melissa Vito who will approve final funding for the programs outlined in the meetings of the board. If you want to go the second half of the board meeting on student services fee money Friday’s meeting, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Presentation room of Old Main. If you want to be even more involved in the Student Services Advisory Board, being directly involved in where that money goes, application for next year’s five open spots, four for undergraduates and one for graduate students, open next Friday and will be due in late March.

A new appointment, funding requests, a proposed resolution and a special presentation from Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Chris Nagata are scheduled for this week’s meeting, according to Emily Fritze, ASUA executive vice president. The ASUA meeting will take place today in the Ventana Room of the Student Union Memorial Center at 5 p.m. Karen Flores, a business management junior in the Eller College of Management, will be appointed the new director of the “Family Weekend” program. Flores is a former chair member of the Accolades organization and took strides to revitalize the club. The Accolades program honors students and faculty for their outstanding leadership and commitment to the university. According to ASUA administrative vice president Gabby Ziccarelli, Flores created a new business model and many other new updates for the program. Ziccarelli said Flores was chosen because ASUA hopes Flores can provide the same results to the “Family Weekend” program. “She totally brought it up to a new level,” Ziccarelli said. As the new director, Flores will be in charge of planning and organizing the annual event, which takes place every October. It will be up to her and her creativity to make the event a success, Ziccarelli said. Flores could not be reached by press time, but Ziccarelli said Flores plans to attend tomorrow’s meeting. Nagata plans to give a presentation on the new proposed fees students can expect to pay next year. Many campus clubs and organizations have submitted requests for the additional funding they will need to stay operational. Each of these organizations has conducted their own research to determine how students feel about the new fee increases, according to Nagata. He plans to present this information to the ASUA senate. “The purpose of the presentation of the information is to introduce our stance based on feedback,” Nagata said. At tonight’s meeting, Sen.Tyler Quillin will also be requesting up to $730 for an aggressive marketing campaign called “I dare you.” The campaign is a call for students to better educate themselves, and communicate their sentiments in regard to campus-related issues. The senate’s “duty” is to reach out to students, and it’s important for students to get involved, Quillin said. There will be a Web site for those interested to learn more about the “I dare you” campaign. It will be available by the end of next week. Quillin also plans to propose a resolution in support of the legislative initiatives prompted by ASUA for this semester. The initiatives include tuition, financial aid, work-study program among others. He feels the student government, on behalf of students, should publically support their initiatives.

The tragedy of exploitation A

nother shooting on a college campus will soon turn into another opportunity for political exploitation Amy Bishop, a biology professor at the University of Alabama, was charged with murder after allegedly killing three professors and wounding three others. According to The Associated Press and the Huntsville Police, Bishop pulled out a handgun during a faculty meeting and opened fire on her colleagues. Bishop’s recent denial for tenure has been conjectured as the cause of her deadly outburst. This tragedy is now another reference point that will be used in the debate about concealed firearms on college campuses, especially the UA. Dan Sotelo The last two weeks have proColumnist duced much dialoguea about a recent resolution opposing SB 1011, which would allow teachers with gun permits to carry weapons on campus. Drafted by Associated Students of the University of Arizona Sen. Tyler Quillin, the resolution states“firearms, in no way, belong in, near or around a classroom or any other university setting, unless in the possession of the University of Arizona Police Department, or other lawful entities.”While the bill focused on allowing teachers to carry weapons, most of the debate has been focused on the right of students and greater UA community to carry weapons. During a public forum, many students protested the resolution, claiming that they have the right to protect themselves on campus. The debate remains especially salient for the UA because of the university’s experience with a violent shooting. The case of Amy Bishop is eerily reminiscent of the 2002 shooting at UA’s School of Nursing. Robert Flores Jr., a student distraught about flunking out of school, shot and killed three professors before killing himself. Flores and Bishop were both individuals who set high goals for their educational and professional futures. Neither Flores nor Bishop were suspected to be violent by those around them in day-to-day interactions. The shock of an extremely intelligent professor committing a heinous act only emphasizes the uncertainty of who may snap next. New revelations have raised serious questions about the thoroughness of background checks performed on Amy Bishop. According to ABC News, Bishop shot and killed her brother in 1986, but the incident was declared an accident. In 1993, Bishop was a suspect in a mail bombing attempt against a Harvard Medical School professor. Had these situations been revealed, there is a strong likelihood that she never would have been employed in the first place. This recent tragedy may help dismiss the imaginative partition between students and professors concerning concealed carry on campus. SB 1011 employs a double standard now shown to be dangerously false, but this fact only returns the debate to a wider audience, which means more heated rhetoric. The main argument for allowing concealed weapons on college campuses is that shootings can happen any time, especially in a gun-free zone where everyone abiding by the law is vulnerable. While every shooting reminds us that we’re vulnerable in public spaces, the frequency of public shootings remains drastically exaggerated. The similarities between the 2002 nursing school incident and the recent tragedy at University of Alabama show that any person, whether student or faculty, can break down mentally and perpetrate mindless acts of violence. Without downplaying the severity of such tragedies, it seems almost unconscionable to exploit the public emotion and instill an environment of utter fear for political purposes. There is no disputing the unpredictability of public shootings, but there is no disputing the likelihood of such an event either. To present these occurrences as inevitabilities instead of outliers is morally ambiguous at best but most likely morally reprehensible. Public spaces can never be made completely safe while allowing the freedom of movement necessary, especially at a public university. Allowing concealed firearms at the UA, with well over 30,000 students, is neither a remedy nor a failsafe. — Dan Sotelo is a political science senior.

MAILBAG College students should know how to walk

It sucks that more UA students don’t understand the importance of taking a daily walk. I’m pretty embarrassed that administration on campus feels it’s their responsibility to try and raise awareness about the positive effects of daily exercise by participating in the Walk Across Arizona initiative. I see plenty of students at the Recreation Center every time I drive through Highland. Expressions like the “Freshman 15” give incoming and former students a bad reputation, implying that we are lazy bums with no drive. And this is why we are so underestimated as adults. Although many of us do understand the importance of a healthy diet and exercise routine, it’s those who do not that lower the impression our elders have of us. I do respect that the Campus Health organization and administration are participating in the Walk Across Arizona movement. I just don’t think that we, as adult college students, have to be told that daily exercise is a must. We should already know that. William Cooper Undecided freshman

Answer to speech is more speech

After reading the Feb. 15 Wildcat opinions column “Dial D for Death: The UA and Motorola,” I was reminded of Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s opinion in a 1964 obscenity case — he said he knew it when he saw it — but, unlike Stewart, who did not see it in the case under review, I see the column as depraved. I do not, however, want the writer to stop offering his opinions. As the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has stated, the answer to speech one finds offensive is more speech. I also would point out to faithful Wildcat readers that the “prestigious world monitoring group Human Rights Watch” to which the author refers, has, like himself, a pronounced obsession with denouncing Israel and a distinct tendency to ignore

horrific (and actual) slaughters in places such as Sudan and the Congo or Pakistan and Iran, for that matter. Tom Gelsinon UA Mexican American Studies senior program coordinator

Which side deserves support?

Don’t call me a partisan — ain’t nobody a jingoistic Israeli nationalist here — but it is pretty clear that the position of UA (and US) humanrights-concerned 20-somethings is both onesided and unduly focused on the issue of Gaza. The world hosts a rich variety of corrupt, violent regimes who do far worse than Israel, yet these are ignored by groups such as Mr. Schivone’s “University Community for Human Rights” in favor of this, their hottest button. And, lest we “understand” too readily the tactics to which Palestinian“freedom fighters”have had to resort under Israel’s extreme pressure — we need only read the Hamas Charter to realize they are not just nobly and innocently reacting to such pressure … So, before we throw ourselves wholeheartedly into the fray on the side of the underdog, let us ask ourselves whether either side deserves such support. For the Palestinians just as much as the Israelis, this is not just a national struggle. There is blind, virulent, senseless hatred on both sides, and it should be robustly clear that if the power balance were reversed, the human rights violations committed on the new underdog would be, if anything, more egregious. Robert Hanshaw Linguistics senior

Gun lessons better than amateur psychology

Regarding the “Forget Guns — take away the Ammo” article by Tom Knauer: While I respectfully disagree with the article, I had to notice that you forgot to mention a small detail. It is called the second amendment. Every person has the right to defend his or herself. In the article, it mentions that “Those most worried about what may harm them the next time they come to campus should consider what more they can do to help.”What does that even mean?

Do you want me to volunteer at a psychiatrist’s office? Maybe spend five extra minutes talking to a stranger? I bet that is exactly what the victims of school shootings do. No, why would they defend themselves after they have just been shot on their campus? They should go walk around campus and say hello to people they don’t know. Of course, and when they do that, there will never be a school shooting. I’ll be spending my time practicing my self-defense tactics and leave the“talking to people”to professionals. Ryan McAbee Student

The world needs more SafeZONEs

Ever notice those small plaques with pink triangles that some professors have on their office doors? I’ve got one too. I had the honor of participating in a SafeZONE training presented by LGBT Affairs on campus on Jan. 27. The program contains two workshops: one on general LGBT education and another on becoming an ally — knowledge that can be applied to any group setting. I was pleased to notice the number of faculty and Residence Life participants outnumbered the students by far. UA, when did you become so accepting? Not that I’m complaining! Unfortunately, the program hasn’t gotten the press it greatly deserves. Despite new hate crime legislation and a rising number of states allowing marriage equality, bigotry and prejudice still run rampant across the world. Even in the last few months, we’ve seen reports on the exponential increase in transgender murders and mind-boggling slaughters in Uganda due to a lack of information about LGBT people. Students, faculty, RAs, everyone: If you’ve been looking for a way to help out your friends, family, coworkers, residents, students, and about ten percent of the population, check out SafeZONE. The workshop gave me a rollercoaster of emotions and helped me understand and reflect upon so many issues that I and many others have faced for years. If everyone cared enough to learn how to help others, imagine what we could do with the world. Christina Bischoff Biology sophomore

Allegations against Israel blind, ignorant

round this time of year, the word“apartheid” is thrown across many college campuses to describe the state of Israel. Last year on the UA Mall, we witnessed a small group of students who organized a demonstration during“Apartheid Week” in attempt to persuade passers-by about the “brutal treatment”of non-Jewish (specifically Arab) citizens of Israel. Many followers of“Apartheid Week” associate themselves with this word without fully knowing it’s meaning. The word“apartheid”originally refers to the South African system between 1948 and 1994 that institutionalized racial discrimination and strict legallyenforced segregation that gave the white minority control over South Africa. Blacks were disenfranchised and stripped of their citizenship. Today, groups who oppose the existence of Israel refer to Israel as an“apartheid

state,”claiming that Israel treats its Arab it is rarely mentioned that homosexuals citizens in a similar manner to how the are executed in Iran and that the legal system in Jordan supports“honor blacks were treated in South Africa. killings”— the murder of women, Those who slander Israel with discriminatory claims, suggesting that including rape victims, whose sexual Arab citizens are not treated like equals conduct displeases their families. Or, in the state of Israel, are how about Syria, which is ruled by a dictator from not only blinded, but also a minority sect or Saudi ignorant. Twenty percent of the Israeli population Arabia which imposes is Arab (Muslim and severe restrictions on Christian). Arabs can women, such as being banned from driving vote, are represented in Aaron Jacobs or traveling without parliament, sit on the Guest columnist Supreme Court and serve permission. in the cabinet. For example, Muslim It’s countries like Iran, Jordan, Arab Raleb Majadele served as a cabinet Syria and Saudi Arabia that should be criticized for the lack of rights minister, and Majallii Wahabi was briefly their citizens receive, not Israel, acting president of Israel in 2007. There is no Arab country in the world where which is the only democratic country Jews have the same rights as Arabs do in in the region. As someone who has Israel. In fact, many Arabs citizens aren’t lived in Israel, I have witnessed even free in their own countries. When the highs and lows of the Israeli talking about the“Middle East”conflict, government. The truth is that Israel

is not perfect, but no country is. However, to even link Israel with the word “apartheid” is not only prejudiced but very much inaccurate. South African journalist Benjamin Pogrund said,“Israel is accused by some of being ‘the new apartheid’ state. If true, it would be a grave charge, justifying international condemnation and sanctions. But it isn’t true. Anyone who knows what apartheid was, and who knows Israel today, is aware of that. Use of the apartheid label is at best ignorant and naïve and at worst cynical and manipulative … Apartheid is used in this case and elsewhere because it comes easily to hand: it is a lazy label for the complexities of the Middle East conflict. It is also used because, if it can be made to stick, then Israel can be made to appear to be as vile as was apartheid South Africa and seeking its destruction can be presented to the world as an equally moral cause”(Focus

Magazine, December 2005). Irael is not an apartheid state, on the contrary, the country deserves recognition. For example, Israel was one of the first to respond to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, even before the United States, practically a neighbor to Haiti. This upcoming week marks the annual“Israel Palooza”on our campus. Instead of falsely accusing Israel as an apartheid state this year, let’s come together and celebrate the freedoms of Israel’s citizens in efforts to work together towards a peaceful future. — Guest columnist Aaron Jacobs is a media arts junior.

POLICEBEAT By Bridgette Doran ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

One truck, 25 people — and a whole lotta booze A University of Arizona Police Department officer was on patrol Friday at 11:10 p.m. at University Boulevard and Euclid Avenue when he noticed a truck with the back-end full of people. The officer followed the truck to Sixth Street and Euclid Avenue when one of the men in the truck bed threw a red plastic Dixie cup, which almost hit the patrol car. After the cup was thrown, the officer pulled the truck over, and six other officers arrived on scene to offer assistance. As the officer walked up to the driver’s window, he reported a strong odor of alcohol coming from the cab of the truck and noticed six other passengers inside the truck, in addition to the 18 men in the truck bed. The officer separated the driver from the rest of the passengers to speak with her. The driver stated she was the designated driver and had not been drinking. After the passengers of the truck were seated on the curb, a search of the truck bed found several empty plastic cups, several empty 12-ounce bottles of Dos Equis Amber beer and a half-full bottle of vodka. After searching the inside of the truck, two half-full 12-ounce bottles of Rolling Rock beer, two half-full 12-ounce bottles of Blue Moon beer and two unopened bottles of Blue Moon beer were found. Beer had also been spilled on the floor of the truck. The four passengers in the back seat of the truck were cited for Minor in Possession and having open containers of spirituous liquor in a motor vehicle. The driver and the two women in the front seat were released from the scene. The 18 men in the back of the truck showed no signs of impairment and did not smell of alcohol. Seventeen of the men were released with the exception of one, whom had a traffic warrant on his record. As the men began to walk away from the scene, the four passengers being cited became argumentative. They said it was unfair for the other passengers to be released because they had all been drinking. Three of the passengers were cited and released on scene, while two men were taken to Pima County Jail on warrants.

Schizophrenic stalker A woman called UAPD on Friday at 11:06 a.m. in reference to a man bothering her at the UofA BookStore. The woman gave the name of the man bothering her to dispatch, and a records check showed he was schizophrenic and had been contacted by the UAPD before. When the officer arrived, he spoke with the woman who was working at one of the registers when the man walked up in front of her and just stared at her face. The woman asked the man to leave, but he refused. He then got closer and placed his hand on her shoulder. She told police she had seen the man back in December at the library. The woman claimed he had stared at her from afar in the library, and, when her boyfriend went to the bathroom, the man approached her and got really close and tried to hug her. When the woman’s boyfriend returned from the bathroom, he pushed the man and told him to stay away from his girlfriend. The man followed the couple out of the library and told them he had a put a bomb under the woman’s boyfriend’s car. They never reported this incident, but the woman said she just wanted the man to leave her alone. The officer met up with the man at the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center. There, the man was issued an exclusionary order for one year. He was then escorted off campus.

No headlights means no marijuana A UAPD officer was on patrol Saturday at 7:48 p.m. when he noticed a broken headlight on a black Toyota Celica. The car was stopped at Highland Avenue and Fourth Street. As the officer walked up to the driver’s side of the car, he could smell the odor of marijuana. When the officer asked the driver about the smell, he said he did not know why the car smelled of marijuana. The officer asked again where the smell might be coming from, and the driver admitted that he had marijuana with him. As the driver got out of the car, he pulled a plastic bag out of his pocket, which contained marijuana, and gave it to the police officer. The diver was read his rights and cited for possession of marijuana and two headlamps required on a vehicle. The weight of the marijuana was 16.9 grams. It was sent to the Arizona Department of Public Safety for testing.

Just play dumb A Coronado Residence Hall resident assistant called UAPD on Sunday at 1:51 a.m. to report the smell of marijuana coming from a dorm room. When the officer arrived, he couldn’t smell any marijuana from the hallway but could hear several voices coming from inside the room. After one of the men answered the door, the officer could immediately smell a strong odor of marijuana. There were six people in the room, and the officer reported that none of them exhibited any signs of marijuana use. All of the people in the room denied knowing of any marijuana in the room, except for one of the residents. She stated there was what looked like loose marijuana on the very end of her desk. The woman she had been in bed and did not know it was there before the officer came. After inspecting the loose substance, the officer reported it was tobacco but did find a plastic baggie with marijuana inside it. All of the people in the room said that “some guys” must have left it in the room and had left shortly before the officer got to the room. The officer determined that there was no reason to believe the people in the room knew of the marijuana and did not fill out a Code of Conduct referrals for the students. The marijuana was entered into UAPD property and evidence with a request to be destroyed.

Arizona 73, California State, Northridge 50

Wildcats subdue Matadors at home By Dan Kohler Arizona Daily Wildcat With support from a home crowd clad in pink for breast cancer awareness, the Arizona women’s basketball team came out on top with a convincing 73-50 victory in its final nonconference game of the year against the California State, Northridge Matadors on Tuesday. The Wildcats (13-11, 6-7 Pacific 10 Conference), who came out donning pink headbands with the insignia“SD” in honor of assistant coach and breast cancer survivor Sue Darling, easily handled a tired Northridge (4-19, 1-9 Big West Conference) defense that was lagging for a majority of the night. Even though facing a team at the bottom of the Big West Conference seemed trivial on paper, the Wildcats came into the contest looking to keep their momentum going by playing a complete game. “You have to go out there and work on things that will make you better” said Arizona head coach Niya Butts. “When you’re trying to be a good team and you want to be good individually, you have to always be ready to perform.” Northridge won the tip and proceeded to play its brand of slow-paced, half-court offense. It seemed as if it was destined to be a low scoring contest with the game tied at 8 with 11:38 left in the first half. Both teams were at a standstill. It looked like the wear and tear of a long season was finally getting to the Wildcats. “I think our lack of focus (was the problem),” said Arizona guard Brooke Jackson, who added that the Wildcats’ lackadaisical performance really affected the team’s momentum. Arizona was able to return to better form, which helped to quicken the pace with an 11-3 run, giving it a 22-15 advantage with 5:47 to play in the half. When the buzzer sounded, the Wildcats were leading in score 32-23 and momentum. “We were playing a little bit casual in the first half,” Butts said. “We were waiting for the game to magically turn in our favor, and we realized we had to impose our will.” In the locker room Butts and the rest of the coaching staff urged the team to pick up the energy on both sides of the ball and to turn up the transition game. “I think when we got going with our transition offense,” Butts said. “We start to settle down in the halfcourt and execute.” Arizona did exactly that. It executed, and before anyone could catch a breath the Wildcats had put up a 20-9 run against the Matadors, giving UA the advantage of 52-32 with 11:51 left

in the game. With 8:06 left to play the score was 58-40 Arizona. In the next five minutes the Wildcats ran for 11 unanswered points, giving them a 69-40 lead with only 2:58 left on the clock. Despite losing by a significant margin, Jasmine Erving, the Matadors’ standout center managed to rack up 21 points and five rebounds. Reiko Thomas, who has seen limited playing time, stood out for Arizona. The sophomore guard finished with 8 points, 10 rebounds,

three assists and steals. Arizona forward Ify Ibekwe was honored during the pre-game show for scoring her 1,000th career point in the previous home game against Washington. The junior added 17 points to the Wildcats’ scoreboard. “Everyone came in and even though we had a slow start, everyone contributed in a way,” Ibekwe said. “I think that’s what we need, the confidence that we can have to go into ASU.” The Wildcats head to Tempe on Saturday to take on ASU, and with a

previous loss to the Sun Devils this season, the Wildcats are looking to take their momentum to the Duel in the Desert. With defense and rebounding as a recurring practice theme, Butts stressed that with the 19 turnovers Tuesday, the Wildcats will need to focus on maintaining ball possession. “We have to do a little better job taking care of the basketball,” Butts said. “We certainly don’t want to have that same turnover margin when we go to ASU.”

There could be trouble in paradise for the Wildcats. The UA men’s golf team will begin play today in the John A. Burns Intercollegiate, a three-day tournament hosted by the University of Hawaii in Schofield Barracks, Oahu, Hawaii. Competition on the golf course won’t be the only thing the team has to worry about while in Hawaii. It will also have plenty of distractions during their week in the tropical paradise. “They take us there a few days early … so we play a couple of other courses and go to the beach a few days before the tournament,” said senior Bradley Nicholson. “Once we start playing the practice round and everything we start to realize why we’re there, but there’s plenty of distractions.” Although some players expressed concern that there might be distraction throughout the week, head coach Rick LaRose quickly dispelled the idea. “Every morning we get up at 5 o’clock when it’s pitch dark … by the time we get them fed and to the golf course it’s 7 o’clock and still dark,” LaRose said. “You play golf until 4:30 or 5 in the afternoon, then get back to the hotel and it’s dark again … there are just no distractions, there isn’t any time. We sleep, play golf, and eat. That’s all we do.” The Wildcats are set on continuing their strong play for a second consecutive tournament after finishing only one stroke behind California — the winner of the Arizona Invitational — in UA’s most recent tournament. Arizona finished third in last year’s John A. Burns Intercollegiate at Leilehua Golf Course. The Wildcats hope their familiarity with the course will give them an advantage in trying to improve in the rankings. “It’s not always easy to win, but we’re pretty confident (that we’ll playing well),” said junior Jonathan Khan, who posted a 3-under-par score of 213 at last year’s event. “I think everyone’s going to play well … we’re playing well as a team. It should be a fun week.”

the constant injuries. “Because of the injuries we’ve had, they’ve all gained some experience,” senior defenseman Zach Cherney said of the freshmen.“We have some really skilled, young guys.” Slugocki got his chance in the ASU series, and, after finding the back of the net in game two, he went on to score four goals in the first game of the American Collegiate Hockey Association Showcase one week later. The freshman sat the bench for his previous team, and associate coach Dave Dougall admitted that the coaching staff didn’t even notice him until the final days of tryouts. But with his newfound playing time, he burst onto the scene to become the team’s leader in goals, assists and points. Stoltz, who said he doubted that he would even make the team during tryouts, made the best of his opportunity to play and emerged this season as one of the team’s best defensive players.

BASKETBALL

He even showcased his offensive ability two weekends ago with a shootout game-winner in Ogden, Utah, against Weber State. Goaltender David Herman had the opportunity to play 27 games in his first year as an Icecat. That experience early on should only help the 21-year-old freshman improve between the pipes. So while the ailments were certainly detrimental to the Icecats’ record and national standing, the injuries forced many “baby Icecats” to be born, mature and make a name for themselves around the Tucson Convention Center. And with only two players leaving due to graduation, the future is bright. “Having 15 new freshmen come in, trying to learn a whole new system and stuff like that, it’s been kind of reflective of how the year has went,” Slugocki said.“But I’d say definitely in the next couple of years as we become upperclassmen, we’re going to become even better together. We’re just going

to grow together as a team and be scary in the future.” When players and coaches look back at this season, it’s hard for them to feel a sense of accomplishment given the number of losses. But, if you look past the numbers and deeper into the stipulations of the season, a ton of positives came from the Icecats’ 2009-2010 campaign. A handful of newcomers emerged, several 18-year-old freshmen saw ice time that they wouldn’t have otherwise, and the team is two games away from making it through one of the craziest seasons in recent years. “I’ve definitely learned a lot about myself as a player,” Slugocki said.“And I would say a lot of guys have too. The guys who have really come into their game are going to step up in the next couple of years and become great college hockey players here.” — Mike Schmitz is a pre-buisness sophomore.

Individual competitors find team support By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat No matter the situation, there is no loss of camaraderie for the Arizona gymnastics team. That camaraderie and support can be found throughout the entire gymnastics program — from the coaching staff, to the gymnasts, to the managers and event trainer. “It’s something that has been developed over years,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “They know it’s part of our team structure, that’s the reason why a lot of them come here. It’s a trademark of our team. It isn’t something that was just learned this year; it’s just something inherent in the program itself.” And although they perform alone, they’re never truly alone. “It makes me want to do better,” said freshman Mykle Douglas,“knowing that they are there for you the whole time, cheering you on, making you want to do better and just go as hard as you can. Basically just giving it your all.” Having support, senior Sarah Tomczyk said, helps her focus. “I would say it’s more discouraging

if nobody is cheering for me,”Tomczyk said. “If no one is saying anything, you’re like,‘Come on help me out.’ I like

it when people are into it.” In their last home meet against UCLA, the Gymcats were still encouraging

each other throughout every routine even though they were struggling. The team rallied around sophomore Talyn Curry, who was going through her beam routine. The first person over to congratulate her was assistant coach Colleen Johnson. “They know as a team that they need each and every one of them to be there. They are constantly rooting for each other and helping each other, but also pushing each other,” Johnson said. The team gives that same kind of encouragement to each other during practice. Even though they are scattered around the practice facility, the team always seems to know when a teammate is getting ready to go through her routine. That’s when you start to hear them scream, “Come on,” “Yeah,” and “Let’s go.” The support the Gymcats give each other is very helpful for the freshmen who have been thrown into competition early due to injuries on the team. Ryden explained that at this part of the season they focus more on the mental aspect of performing, because at this point in a club program the

season would be over. The freshmen who have not experienced a full year of collegiate athletics are still trying to get over that wall. “Our team is very, very close, and sometimes that cheering and support can get you by those rough patches because you know you have someone that supports you and understands what you are going through,” Ryden said. The Gymcats are also a very tightknit group outside of the gym, spending the majority of their free time with their teammates. “We are very close. We hang out all the time,” Tomczyk said. “We get along incredibly when we are on the road constantly laughing, always having a good time.” According to Tomczyk the team does normal college stuff together, which includes going to dinner, movies and shopping. “We are basically together all the time,”Douglas said.“I live in the dorms. All the freshmen are always together, it’s just like another family. It’s just nice to have them always by your side.”

Jordan Smith

By Derek Lawrence Arizona Daily Wildcat Jordan Smith, a senior and co-captain on the Arizona men’s swimming team, finished in first place three times this weekend in a Wildcats’ win over ASU in Tempe. The Arizona Daily Wildcat caught up with Smith to discuss the team’s championship chances, the ladies’ love of Speedos and who the No. 1 team on campus is. Daily Wildcat: How did it feel to have such a big individual performance this weekend against ASU? Jordan Smith: That always feels good, especially when you are going against a rival, and just to be able to score points with first place … it’s always a great feeling. Considering what a big win, kind of lopsided win, that you guys had over ASU, do you really consider them a legitimate rival in the pool? Well, ASU, they have been through some tough times recently. The men’s program actually got cut a couple years ago and I’m happy their alumni brought it back, because it means so much to UA swimming to have them in the state, because it’s kind of an enticement for other teams from around the country to come and swim against us ‘cause they can just drive two hours and swim against them too. So I mean, there definitely has been a time when they were beating us at dual meets I heard. Just 10, 20 years ago they were a lot better. So they are kind of rebuilding now, it shifts. So it has been a couple tough years for them, but I’m glad we can still swim against them. What does it mean to you being a co-captain for this team? It means a lot. I mean, you come into the program and as a freshman you see these captains and it’s just really helpful to see those guys. So for me to be able to have that kind of influence on the younger guys

… it means a lot to me and I take it really seriously. What would it mean to you if you guys were able to win a second championship in three years? That would just be awesome. My senior year and we have a huge senior class and all of us have been here for four years. So just to be able to go out with a win, it would be great and we kind of had a disappointing finish last year. So it would kind of be redemption for last year. It would mean a lot. What are your goals, swim-wise, after college? I want to keep swimming as long as I can. Probably go for the 2012 Olympic Trials and see how I do there. There is the U.S. National meet this summer and they are selecting some teams there. So if I could get some international experience that would mean a lot. Basically I just want to keep swimming as long as I can, until it’s really responsible for me to do it. All right, now we are going to lighten it up a bit. So I was reading online that you are from Reno; are you a big Vegas guy? Actually, I’ve only been to Vegas as a 21 year old maybe a couple times. So I guess I’m not yet, but maybe we will have something to celebrate after NCAAs and make a trip up there. Reno actually has a lot of casinos and stuff too, but I don’t really go to those unless I have friends from out of town. So do you have a lady friend? Yeah I do have a girlfriend. She is on the swim team. OK, so these other questions might not make her a big fan of mine, but I’m going to try for them anyway. I might lose a reader. But let’s pretend that you were a bachelor and if there was a list of the most eligible bachelors at the UA, where do you think you would rank? Oh, you’re going to get me in

Salonspa

trouble. If I was going to rank myself on a bachelor’s list I would have to say No. 1. OK, at least we have a modest guy here. (Laughs.) So let’s be honest, the ladies love the Speedos right? Yeah I mean, I’ve never come across a girl who didn’t like a man in a Speedo, because you know it shows that you’re confident and comfortable in your skin. OK, I might have to give that a try sometime. What’s your favorite chick flick? You’ve got to have one, I mean you have a girlfriend. I’m sure you’ve got one. My favorite chick flick … I’m probably gonna get a lot of crap for this but I think Mean Girls is actually a pretty funny movie. Hey, that’s not a bad choice. Funny movie. So right now let’s build the perfect girl. Let’s take your girlfriend out of the equation, obviously we might get you in trouble again, but you can just blame it on me. You can combine different parts of different famous women, what is this girl going to look like? Oh man, well I would have to just say (model) Marisa Miller all-around is pretty much the perfect woman. I don’t know if I could switch out any parts for her. OK that’s fair enough. What’s the best part of being a swimmer, out of the pool? That’s a tough one. I don’t have to spend any money on hair products because my hair is so messed up from the sun that it just sticks wherever I put it. (Laughs) That sounds nice, I wish I knew how that felt. I also read that Gilbert Arenas is your favorite athlete, considering recent events are you still sticking with that pick? (Laughs) You got that from the media

guide, and I filled out that information a couple years ago before he was arrested. I still like him, but these days I’d probably lean more toward maybe a Chris Cooley of the Redskins or maybe an Ovechkin because I’m a D.C. fan. OK, guess you can’t go Caron Butler anymore. Considering his nickname was Agent Zero, should we really be surprised about what he got in trouble for? (Laughs) I don’t know it sounds like it was just a dumb move on his part, but yeah I don’t know what to say about that. Can I make the assumption that no gambling for $20,000 and whipping out guns happens with the UA swim team? Yeah. I’ve never seen a gun in the locker room and I mean no gambling, maybe for like a sandwich or something. OK a little lower stakes there. Last question, do me a favor. Let’s start a controversy right here. Is the swim team the best team on campus? Oh, I mean I’ll definitely say that. I’ve got no problem making that statement. We are No. 1 right now in the nation, so I mean who else can say that?

Lauren Pancrazi

credits her father, an independent business owner, with having the greatest influence on her major and career choice. And where did she find her summer internships with industry leaders GEICO and Kellogg’s? Lauren said, “Career Services! I found both my summer internships through Wildcat Joblink!” Lauren hails from Yuma, Arizona, and will graduate in May 2010. Though she always knew she wanted to major in Business, she wasn’t sure what facet of business she wanted to focus on. “Up until the end of my Sophomore year I wanted to go into Finance… I have always been interested in operating my own business, so I decided to apply to the Eller Entrepreneurship program during my Junior year.” For Lauren’s complete success story go to www.career. arizona.edu, click on “News” for the articles archives and then filter (at the bottom of the page) for Success Stories.
