New system reallocates financial aid An assessment profile will decide fund distribution for freshmen based on need
By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA is using a new system to distribute its limited financial aid resources. A select group of newly admitted students will be asked to fill out an online financial need assessment form in addition to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The program is run through College Board and asks more specific questions about things like parental financial contribution and assets. The tool will help distribute financial aid to the students who need it the most, according to Vice President of Student Affairs
Melissa Vito. The new system will not affect current students. “We know the pressure for financial aid is intense with the economy coupled with tuition,” Vito said. “This gives us the opportunity to reallocate limited resources to our neediest students.” The UA will distribute $110 million in financial aid in 2011, which is 26.5 percent of the total revenue from tuition and fees, according to the Arizona Board of Regents. Aid is up $5 million from last year, when it totaled 27.6 percent of the UA’s 2010 revenue. Students admitted for fall 2011 will receive letters stating awarded grants, loans and work-study options. Those who
might qualify for additional institutional aid will be asked to fill out the online form, said John Nametz, director of the Office of Student Financial Aid. Nametz estimated about 1,600 students out of 6,000 to 7,000 who are sent financial aid letters will be asked to fill out the need assessment profile. The program is provided at no cost to the university. Students are charged an application fee, which may be waived based on need. Questions ask, for example, details about income for students with parents who are divorced or families who report negative income for last year. “The FAFSA form is pretty
basic,” Vito said. “It may not give us the full picture of the assets they actually have.” Some students who may have received institutional awards in the past may not be eligible, Nametz said. “The students selected will potentially receive institutional awards,” Nametz said. “Before we invest, we want to make sure these are students who really need it.” The new system aims to reallocate these funds to other students. “Those students are getting less, meaning I can give more money to students where it will really make a difference,” Nametz said. Financial aid is a common concern for prospective students, according
to Chris Portney, senior coordinator of special projects for the Office of Admissions. “We certainly do our best to make it affordable given the economic climate,” she said. Portney said she is in favor of the new allocation system. “I think it’s absolutely a good idea and can only benefit students,” she said. Nametz said student need for financial aid is increasing rapidly even as the university invests in employment opportunities, scholarships and need-based aid. “I’m at a loss to really finance for people who really need it,” Nametz said. “This is one methodology to help do that.”
ASA lays out 2011 priorities Wikipedia turns 10 years old
Jennifer Ricketts, a lecturer in the department. “We want them to access the peer-reviewed literature,” Ricketts said, who has had limited experience with the online encyclopedia. Nutritional sciences students are encouraged to cite articles they find through PubMed, a free database maintained by the National Library of Medicine that includes medical and clinical research. “What is a problem in teaching a (general education) course is that it is unfortunately common for students to plagiarize from Wikipedia,” Ricketts said. She said she advises her students to treat Wikipedia as a starting point in their research. Applied mathematics graduate student Erica McEvoy said she uses Wikipedia all the time. “At one point, I became fascinated with the psychology of serial killers,” McEvoy said. Her curiosity was piqued after watching a TV news story about John Wayne

Elma Delic, a board chair of the Arizona Students’ Association, makes opening remarks at an ASA kick-off meeting held in the Santa Rita Room of the Student Union Memorial Center on Feb. 2. Participants discussed why education matters to them.
By Eliza Molik ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Music, decorations and pizza created a welcoming environment for potential Arizona Students’ Association interns and volunteers during their spring kick-off meeting last night at the UA campus.
The meeting focused on how attendees could help fight against future tuition increases, student fee increases and budget cuts through advocating to elected officials and student organizations. Several ASA members gave a PowerPoint presentation entitled ”AZ crisis by the numbers,”
showing attendees that Arizona is facing a $763.6 million budget shortfall this year and that tuition has increased 63 percent in the last few years with the potential of being even larger this year. Attendees broke into small groups where current ASA ASA, page 5
Wikipedia celebrated its 10th anniversary last month, and its evolution has turned what was originally a side project into the Internet’s most popular online encyclopedia. Casper Grathwohl, vice president and publisher of digital and reference content for Oxford University Press, argued in last month’s The Chronicle Review that Wikipedia could function as another reference tool. Grathwohl wrote that scholars should work with Wikipedia to improve the quality of its content for the benefit of students. Wikipedia’s growing pains and controversies have left students and faculty members with mixed opinions about how useful and reliable its articles can be. In the nutritional sciences department, faculty members and teaching assistants tell students that they cannot cite Wikipedia in their course work, according to

Facilities Management hires new recycling coordinator By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Despite budget cuts, Facilities Management is making sustainability a high priority. Facilities Management hasn’t had a recycling program coordinator since 2008 due to a lack of funds. Various supervisors managed the position’s responsibilities internally, but they have filled it now because, according to Director of Facilities Management Chris Kopach, “we think it’s extremely important. Sustainability continues to be a large item on campus.”
INSIDE Opinions: Police Beat: Odds & Ends: Classifieds: Comics: Sports:
David Munro worked as a carpenter in Facilities Management for three and a half years before being hired as the recycling program coordinator. Munro has a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the UA. Munro is known by his coworkers as “Mr. Green” for his efforts to find ways to reuse materials as a carpenter. He was inspired to go green because his seven-year-old son was learning about environmental practices in school. Around the same time, he was asked to look at a way to save excess drywall from going to waste. After that
project, he just kept looking at ways to save. “Tucson and the University of Arizona are really dear to my heart,” Munro said. “This is a really great place to live.” He and his wife picked Tucson out of a book when they were looking for a place for him to go to school and were attracted by the bountiful sunshine. “To me, it’s one of the most beautiful campuses in the country,” Munro said. “I really believe that. I feel really connected to this place and the university. So I think it gives me that sort of

CatCash takes over on Friday By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Rebecca Haschke, an intern for Justice for All, explains why she thinks abortion is wrong in front of anti-abortion posters on the UA Mall on Wednesday.
Abortion display creates dialogue By Mariah Davidson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The “Abortion: From Debate to Dialogue” exhibit returned to the UA on Wednesday. The exhibit features blown up images depicting what happens to fetuses during and after an abortion. Justice For All is a non-profit, educational anti-abortion organization based in Wichita, Kan., that brought the campaign to the UA. Justice For All’s mission is to “train thousands to make abortion unthinkable for millions, one person at a time.” Maureen McKinley, a spokesperson for Justice For All, said they are here to “share with the campus what abortion looks like.” The goal is to “start dialogue about abortion,” McKinley said.
Those passing by were asked to write their stance on abortion on large boards. Elizabeth Braeley, a pre-nursing freshman, said after she signed as for abortion rights, she was bombarded with questions. Braeley said that it did not seem fair “to take advantage of freedom of speech and then suppress someone else’s when he or she chooses to sign against that personal choice.” “The images are crude and insensitive,” Braeley said. Braeley also said she didn’t “believe anybody chooses to get an abortion because they want to ‘murder.’” “Accidents happen, and to those girls who are not prepared to be mothers and to the women who can’t emotionally,
financially or physically raise a child, abortion is available to them,” Braeley said. McKinley said some students misunderstood the goal of the images. “Many students are offended by seeing the pictures of abortion violence and not by the violence itself,” McKinley said. Aureil Overall, a veterinary science junior, said they do this campaign every year and it’s “getting old actually.” “The controversy is not really changing,” Overall said. John Netherton, a physiology freshman, said he is “all about pro-life.” “Most people don’t understand what happens with an abortion and the lack of understanding determines how people
react to it,” Netherton said. Vox, a campus group connected with Planned Parenthood, offered a counter display with a different point of view. Zoe Warren, from Vox, who studies pre-nursing and Spanish at the UA, had a clipboard asking passers to sign a petition to list birth control as a preventative medicine that allows it to be purchased without a co-pay. Warren also said they are handing out condoms to prevent abortions from happening; the same reason Justice for All came to the UA campus. Emily Herrell, the advocacy coordinator for Planned Parenthood, said “people are thanking us for a counter display.” Herrell mentioned that the reaction has been pleasant overall.
Caffeine consumption helps, harms Students may not be aware of the high content of some popular drinks By Michelle Weiss ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Students at the UA can be found lining up all hours of the day at Starbucks for their daily caffeine fix. Caffeine is considered to be the most popular and commonly used drug in the world because it is found naturally in many different plants, drinks and foods, according to the National Sleep Foundation and the Johns
Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Caffeine improves concentration due to a stimulant effect, according to a 2005 preliminary study conducted by the American Public Health Association on caffeine consumption among college students. The study also found overconsumption of caffeine can cause physical and psychological impairment. Every year, Americans consume an average of 90,700
milligrams of caffeine, according to visualeconomics.com . Students may not be aware of the caffeine levels inside the many drinks they consume each day. Gale Welter, a registered dietitian and the coordinator of nutrition services at Campus Health Service, said it is recommended that people consume no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day. By comparison, a tall, regular coffee at Starbucks

contains an average of 375 milligrams of caffeine. If consumers drink more than the suggested amount per day, they can develop a tolerance for caffeine and not feel the effects as easily, according to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. For example, someone with caffeine tolerance may still be able to fall asleep after drinking coffee. Welter said caffeine could have negative side effects such as anxCAFFEINE, page 5
CatCash will completely replace “Cash-to-Chip,” a way to pay for services like printing and laundry with their CatCards, on Friday. Money now can be loaded onto an account using your NetID, much like with meal plans. The “Cash-to-Chip” machines would no longer be necessary. Guests can also deposit money into accounts, although transactions and balances are only visible to the NetID holder. CatCash will allow students to pay for services such as printing and parking garage fees, including the option to charge some services. The goal for the program is that the many places on campus where a student would use cash would be supplanted by CatCash, meaning students could even buy a fitness pass at the Student Recreation Center or tickets from UApresents.

Vicky Westover, director of the UA Hanson Film Institute, said she watched an interview with the site’s co-founder Jimmy Wales who talked about how Wikipedia works. “I learned that the majority of the editors are guys in their 20s, and that actually gave me pause,” Westover said. “It just made me start to think about (Wikipedia) slightly differently in that how much information isn’t there, what isn’t being written about, and how very little women’s perspective is actually represented in Wikipedia.”

Senate rejects bid to Obama, McCain repeal health care law meet in White House MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS WASHINGTON — The Senate on Wednesday rejected the Republican effort to repeal the 2010 health care law, a vote likely to reverberate politically, as both sides used the debate to make partisan points they see boosting them for 2012 elections. The final vote was 51-47 against repeal, which needed 60 votes to pass. The outcome was no surprise, since Democrats control 53 of the Senate’s 100 seats, and none supported repeal. But the two days of partisan bickering over the measure underscored how this issue continues to dominate political discussion and is likely to for some time. The Senate did agree to one
change Wednesday, voting 81-17 to repeal a paperwork requirement that business interests found chafing. The change, which is expected to win approval from the House of Representatives, would erase a requirement that businesses must report to the government purchases of goods or services of more than $600 from single vendors during a single year. President Barack Obama singled the provision out for extermination in his State of the Union Address last week. Other alterations won’t come so easily. In the Senate debate this week, most Democrats aggressively defended the health care act that Obama signed into law 10 months ago.
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama welcomed Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., to the Oval Office on Wednesday for a rare face-to-face meeting between the two former rivals, covering issues such as immigration reform and the situation in the Middle East. On the issue of Egypt, McCain had offered measured praise so far for Obama’s handling of the crisis, saying Sunday that he should do more to press for open elections. After leaving the Oval Office, McCain used the social networking site Twitter to call for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down. “It’s in the best interest of
Egypt, its people & its military,” he said. McCain’s office described the meeting as productive, saying the two also discussed border security, trade and budget issues. “Sen. McCain looks forward to working with the president to address issues of mutual concern for the welfare of our country in these challenging times,” his office said in a statement after the senator left. Earlier, press secretary Robert Gibbs singled out earmark reform as an issue where Obama and McCain have found common ground. When Obama said he would veto any legislation that included lawmakers’ pet projects, McCain was one of the few lawmakers applauding.
Yemen’s president Monster cyclone says he’ll leave office belts east Australia MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS BEIRUT — Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh vowed Wednesday to step down from office before 2013 elections and to remove his son as his likely successor, an apparent concession to opposition groups ahead of a day of planned protests in the capital, Sana. Saleh announced that that he would “freeze” proposed constitutional amendments that would make him Yemen’s president for life and postpone April parliamentary elections that have been widely dismissed as rigged in the government’s favor. “No to hereditary rule and no to life presidency,” Saleh told parliament, according to the official Saba news agency. “Regardless of the circumstances, I will make concessions one after the other for the sake of this nation,” he said in the 17-minute address. “The interests of the homeland are above our interests as individuals, parties, groups and commissions. It is a shame for us
to destroy what we built.” Analysts said the concessions would fail to sate a boisterous opposition movement inspired by anti-government uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. Critics note Saleh made a similar statement in 2006 about not running for re-election, only to go back on his word after supporters staged demonstrations urging him to run again. “The opposition doesn’t really believe in what he says,” said Shatha Harazi, a political reporter at Sana’s independent Englishlanguage Yemen Times. “He didn’t speak about canceling the amendments. ... He’s trying to calm the anger. Once the opposition calms down, he will again discuss the elections and the amendments.” The toppling of Tunisia’s longtime leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali on Jan. 14 after weeks of protests, followed by the Egyptian uprising that erupted 11 days later, have galvanized calls for change across the region, including in Jordan, Libya, Syria, Algeria and Sudan.
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS SYDNEY — Destruction was catastrophic but there were no immediate reports of deaths Thursday after a monster cyclone crashed over Australia’s northeast coast. Cyclone Yasi was downgraded from category five to category three strength as it lost force and spun inland over farming country in north Queensland. The cyclone made landfall near Mission Beach, 85 miles south of Cairns. “It’s too early to call, but I’m certainly very relieved that even at this early stage we haven’t had any reports yet of fatalities or injury,” Queensland Premier Anna Bligh said. “We’ve also had no reports of structural damage to any of the evacuation centers, and that’s certainly a cause for breathing a sigh of relief.” Bligh warned that it would be several hours before officials could reach Mission Beach and other remote
places to check on residents. “We’re still experiencing torrential rain and high winds, so it’s not yet safe for people to be out assessing the damage.” The region is home to around 300,000 people, an estimated half of whom would be in properties that were without electricity because power poles were brought down in the worst storm in living memory. Cairns, a city of 122,000 people located 1,050 miles north of Brisbane, was initially in the direct line of the storm but was spared its full force. Yasi packed winds of 180 miles per hour, created massive thunderstorms and generated a tidal surge that may have inundated thousands of properties. “Over the next 12 hours, as the system continues to be fairly intense and moving towards Georgetown, there is still going to be fairly strong and damaging wind gusts up to 125 kilometers per hour (77 mph) as it spreads inland,” the T:4.5” Bureau of Meteorology said.

EDITORIAL Journalism’s first duty is to truth, accuracy
ewspapers in America are supposed to print the truth. It would be irresponsible to allow inaccuracies, libel and illogical reasoning to be printed merely because it is someone’s opinion. A newspaper ’s first duty should always be to distribute accurate information to its readers. Even in the opinions section, newspaper editors have an obligation to ensure that information columnists base their opinions on is properly attributed and accurate. Many people accuse media outlets, including the Arizona Daily Wildcat, of being “liberal leftists” who explicitly try to shut out the conservative voice. However, the only people who have applied for columnist positions have been liberal or Democratic types. There has been a push this semester to seek out conservative voices and have a more balanced and evocative desk. If this describes you, please write a letter to the editor or apply to be a columnist. But first, know that working at a newspaper means that you must respect your fellow employees and all of their ideas, no matter how different they are. Also, know that if you present a fact or an idea, it must be wellfounded and data should come from a credible third-party source. Even in an opinions column, the reporting must be provably factual. Employees must be held accountable for their work, and readers should be able to expect that any claims made in a column can be supported by legitimate sources. Writers are hired to make justified, truthful statements in columns, and support assertions with well thoughtout examples. Even though they do not follow the same tradition of objectivity that straight news reporters write, they are held to similar standards of fairness. Opinions writers are required to be fair and reasonable in their assessments. It is stated specifically in the Wildcat Resource Manual (which all Wildcat employees are expected to read before signing a written agreement to uphold the policies of the Wildcat) that employees are not to make libelous or untruthful statements, or engage in hate speech. The opinions editor is hired to edit work for inaccuracies, fallacious and/or illogical reasoning. It is at the discretion of Wildcat editors to select content for the newspaper, or to choose to hold content that is not fit to print. Editors cannot print content in good conscience if they do not feel 100 percent certain that the reporting is fair. All Daily Wildcat employees are required to keep consistent, professional communication with their respective editor. Furthermore, the Daily Wildcat is also a business, and, as such, has a chain of command to submit grievances. Students should take note because this is common in every business. If readers, reporters or columnists feel aggrieved or upset with content, they should consult the supervisor, editor or the editor in chief. The Daily Wildcat, like all newspapers, is a place of public discourse. All different views and perspectives are welcome, and it is a place for such ideas to reach thousands of people each day. But there is no guaranteed space for information that is misleading, incorrect or inflammatory. That is not censoring a writer. That is not an abridgement of his or her First Amendment rights, or a limitation on his or her exercise of free speech. It’s responsible editing. As journalists and citizens, we revere the right to free speech. It should be supported and nourished through constant conversation and use. However, as the Supreme Court has shown, not all speech is protected. The First Amendment does not provide for a separate “opinion” privilege. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members.

The Daily Wildcat editorial policy
Daily Wildcat staff editorials represent the official opinion of the Daily Wildcat staff, which is determined at staff editorial meetings. Columns, cartoons, online comments and letters to the editors represent the opinions of their author and do not represent the opinion of the Daily Wildcat.
MAILBAG Discussion should be informed
While in general I hold the Arizona Daily Wildcat in high esteem, I was forced to take exception to the ill informed and cursory opinion expressed by the editorial staff in the Jan. 31 edition of the Wildcat (in the Pass/Fail editorial) concerning the university’s ban on the consumption of marijuana on its campus. The letter prepared by the university’s general council says, in essence, that the university may not receive federal funds should the university permit the smoking of marijuana, including medical marijuana, on campus and thus it will not allow students to do so. Against the harm of losing millions of dollars in federal aid, making its students ineligible to use federal loans, grants, or scholarships and its faculty unable to receive federal funding to pursue their research, the editorial board advances the claim that failing to allow medical marijuana consumption on campus compromises the university’s reputation as “an institution that boasts freethinking and promotes knowledge and the health of its students and faculty,” and deprives those suffering from a debilitating disease their most efficacious treatment. The editorial board in no way gives readers a reason to support this nebulous
and quite possibly fallacious claim. At a time when the university is suffering from the very real harm of a declining budget and the possibility of a further cut of up to 20 percent advancing, this argument is juvenile at best. Please give your readers an honest cost/benefit analysis of a serious situation by outlining the dollar costs to the university, its faculty, and the average student weighed against a metric your readers could examine your competing view against. Otherwise, please avoid discussion of concrete policy. You have a duty to your readers to inform a discussion, not simply provide empty rhetoric. — Jacob Knutson UA alumnus
Financial aid must be a student priority
The article “Pell Grant funds uncertain” (Jan. 30) did an outstanding job of explaining the potential impact of cuts to the Pell Grant because there is a general lack of financial aid available to Arizona students. Any cut to student financial aid will have lasting consequences, especially in the face of potential tuition increases.
Pell Grants make it possible for scores of students to receive an affordable education, a feat almost completely out of reach just a generation ago. If our country and our state are to remain viable in the global marketplace, education must be accessible so we can continue to graduate world-class engineers, teachers, business majors and so on. Another factor that needs to be taken into consideration when talking about Pell Grant cuts is Arizona’s desperate shortfall of state-based financial aid. Arizona invested very little in the form of financial aid — the state disbursed a mere $15.9 million in the 2009-10 school year. The same lack of investment in financial aid isn’t so apparent in other comparable states. Washington, which has a similar population size to Arizona, invested $244 million in 2009-10, while New Mexico, our regional competitor, invested $70 million the same year. Still, Arizona Students’ Association remains committed to fighting for accessible and affordable higher education. Get involved and help protect Arizona students from tuition increases and financial aid cuts. — Elma Delic Arizona Students’ Association, chairwoman

People who make my pet peeves come true As someone who can claim “professional hater” as a job description on her resume, it is a rare occasion to have little to no criticism for my fellow students and beings. So at the beginning of the semester when I saw a girl in Uggs paired with jorts and I did not immediately want to text my bff to talk shit (because as you know, only bitches text shit), I knew something was wrong. Up until that point, I prided myself on the ability to fill at least two burn book pages a day with catty remarks. It didn’t matter how hard I tried to channel my inner Blair Waldorf and Regina George, it seemed as if I were becoming nice. It wasn’t until I spent a day running errands, Facebook stalking and actually paying attention to my peers that I realized the world is filled with copious amounts of people with terrible fashion senses, annoying quirks and bad manners — all of which are reasons enough to keep this hater hating. So this is for you, all of the people who: Think it your civil duty to barricade an entire grocery store aisle with your cart while others are clearly trying to reach behind you. Why is that you insist on blocking the entire section of Oreos? Have you ever thought of blocking the stupid products that nobody cares
about? Take canned meats, for example. Of course not; you would much rather inconvenience everyone while you sort through your coupons. Insist on sharing personal anecdotes related to every topic the professor covers. You should look into starting a blog or keeping a journal because nobody cares. You were raised by a herd of javelinas in the middle of the desert? Long hair, don’t care. Have decided that in order to keep up with the times, there is no longer a need for a baby in the baby carriage, instead your motto is: “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes opening a joint Facebook account.” The question here is, now that you are in a committed relationship, have you lost your identity? If so, count me out as a bride. I loathe the day that I have to sign every Facebook comment I leave so my sister isn’t creeped out by the possibility that my husband left a comment like “Get it girl” on her Spring Break photo. Think it is an absolute sin for a male to express any form of compassion toward another male without the use of the phrase “No homo.” Did you really think that others would be concerned with your sexuality when you told your dad you loved him on the phone? If you are that worried about whether or
not people think you’re gay, maybe you should consider cutting the fluorescentcolored bro tanks out of your wardrobe instead of trying to explain yourself. You know what they say, denial is the first step to acceptance. Don’t do a final mirror check before leaving the house. Just because you didn’t see your terrible panty-line before you left does not mean it does not exist. It does, and it is grossing me out. The same goes for your camel toe. The makeup line across your chin isn’t doing you any good either. Please do yourself a favor and complete a onceover in the mirror before you step outside. Know it all. Maybe I am just bitter, but every time you open your mouth to correct someone or to add something to the statement just made by the professor, I want to gauge your eyes out.

Guns take center stage at ASUA By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ASUA Sen. Scott Rising wrote a resolution against gun legislation that would allow students and faculty to carry concealed weapons — one that stirred discussion for more student input and spearheaded presenting a campus opinion on the issue to the community. “The purpose of bringing this resolution is to bring the discussion on gun control and legislation being looked at in the (Arizona) House,” Rising said. Allowing concealed carry “actively shifts the burden of selfpreservation away from safety officials to students and faculty,” and would “remove the strategic advantage in high-pressure situations (of police),” according to Rising’s resolution. Sen. Chad Travis said he felt that the resolution put the senate in a position with which he was uncomfortable. “While I applaud the efforts to try and form an opinion for the student body, I really don’t feel comfortable taking a stance on this issue,” Travis said. “I’ve talked to students, and they don’t want the 10 of us trying to form an opinion for the entire student body. I’ve seen a very divided campus on this issue.” Travis said, regardless of the stance of on the issue, he wouldn’t feel comfortable in writing a resolution in either light. “I have yet to hear a call from the student body,” Travis said. “When there is an uproar from the students, as with S.B. 1070, and we have students that are leaving this campus, then we are more than comfortable.” Rising said he felt not taking a stance now wasn’t necessarily wise. “I don’t think we have to wait for rioting in the streets for us to take action,” Rising said. “What’s unique about this is that it is directly applied to the University of Arizona. We have an obligation to our students to take a stance.” Rising also said, though, that he

“wouldn’t want to just blindside everyone with a resolution.” Other senators also felt taking a stance was necessary. “We do need to take a stance,” said Sen. Deanna Mariner. “It was overwhelming in one direction last year, and I think we need to keep in mind that we were elected to represent students.” “We need to redirect our methods behind how we are going to solicit student information,” Campbell said. “I hate to see students all of a sudden hear about this legislation passing and have students say, ‘Why didn’t you give us the chance?’ I would hate for this opportunity to pass us by.” Forums need to be only a place to make a generalized statement among the students about their opinions, according to Sen. Dominick San Angelo. “It’ll be an exercise to put on this charade that we are getting student opinion when everyone who is opposed to it will come out against it,” San Angelo said. ASUA President Emily Fritze said a new resolution fit the new legislative climate. “The reason that is because there are numerous bills that are being proposed and for the senate to approach it and take or not take their own stance,” Fritze said. Other senate business: The ASUA Senate voted unanimously to approve club funding for several clubs, bringing the yearly total for club funding to $71,419.13. The Outreach College also spoke to the ASUA Senate about reorganization of offerings for evening and weekend courses, despite allowing more degree options to be utilized at night. “We have not gone to megasize classes,” presenters said to alleviate blockages at bottleneck courses and degrees, especially with international students and UA South and adding distributive experience like the Eller College of Management’s Nanjing, China program, which allowed the college to accept more people into its upper division programs.
“I feel really connected to this place and the university. So I think it gives me that sort of added incentive to really do well by this university because I think it’s kind of paying back in a way.”

“It’s a very individual thing because we all have different sensitivities to it,” she said. Some graduate students with teaching assistant shifts will drink a pot of coffee all day while they work, Welter said. “Somehow Starbucks does something with theirs that makes it a lot more potent with their caffeine,” she said.
CAFFEINE continued from page 2 iousness, elevated blood pressure and irregular heartbeats. Caffeine can also have positive effects such as increased alertness, improved cognitive functioning and a feeling of wakefulness. For people trying to minimize their caffeine intake, taking gradual steps is recommended in order to avoid withdrawal symptoms, Welter said. Welter said she had previously experienced the negative effects of drinking coffee. “I would get to a high and then suddenly crash, and then it was no good,” she said. “I mean, I just had to wait it out in order to focus, it was horrible.” Welter said she has cut the caffine in every cup of coffee in half by mixing in decaf. Studies conducted by Harvard Women’s Health Watch have shown that the risk of getting type2 diabetes is lower for people who drink coffee regularly as opposed to those who do not drink it.
A list of positive and negative effects of caffine can be found in Welter’s article in the nutrition section of the Campus Health Service website www.health.arizona.edu It doesn’t take much for a person to become reliant on caffeine, Welter said. Many studies have shown that caffeine causes physical dependencies, and people can suffer symptoms of caffeine withdrawal if they reduce or eliminate their caffeine consumption. Kathryn Torres, a physiology senior, drinks an Americano or
iced coffee every day. Though she likes the taste of coffee, she said she doesn’t get much sleep so she needs the caffeine. “I feel like sometimes I need something to get through studying,” Torres said. Rachel Martin, a journalism sophomore, drinks coffee or tea at least once a day because she needs the caffeine and enjoys the taste, she said. “I just drink it because it tastes good,” said Anthony Burnette, a pre-pharmacy freshman. Burnette said he doesn’t rely on coffee to stay awake or for the effects of caffeine. Drinking coffee in moderation is considered safe and even beneficial to one’s health, according to Harvard Women’s Health Watch. However, there are other alternatives to drinking coffee in order to stay energized and focused in school. The National Sleep Foundation suggests that having a regular sleep schedule is crucial to restoring energy in the body. Eating healthy, balanced snacks are also important for concentrating and remaining energized, according to Campus Health.
ASA continued from page 1 interns asked each circle the question: “Why is higher education important to you?” By and large, the groups said higher education was important to them because it gives students a variety of opportunities in the world, better paying jobs and the ability to make a difference while creating innovation in research Will Ferguson/Arizona Daily Wildcat and giving our children Arizona Students’ Association intern Ariel Molk and Jessica Gerson, a political science undergraduate, present why higher education matters to a group of other students at a brighter future. an ASA kick-off meeting.

you throw something away, there is no ‘away’ there. There’s no magic other place where something just kind of goes.” For students, Munro hopes they will pause before consuming something and think, “where is that waste going to go … maybe they’ll think twice and maybe they’ll do something differently.” In addition to the new hire, Facilities Management is on its way to becoming Green Clean
Certified, not something most universities can boast, according to Kopach. JohnsonDiversey will be coming out at the end of February to certify the switch to green cleaning products as well as items like plastic liners and paper towels. “It’s (sustainability’s) really a cultural change … people are really starting to think about it,” Munro said, “and I’m excited about the future.”

Obama pushes for unity in wake of shooting By Bethany Barnes and Luke Money ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Standing before an audience of more than 13,000 in McKale Center, with an almost equal number watching via video from the nearby Arizona Stadium, President Barack Obama took a thoughtful pause. “On Saturday morning, Gabby, her staff and many of her constituents gathered outside of a supermarket to exercise their right to peaceful assembly and free speech,” he said. “They were fulfilling a central tenant of democracy and the vision by our founders … That is the quintessentially American scene that was shattered by a gunman’s bullets.” Obama and several high-ranking members of his cabinet

Flandrau window damages caught on camera
An alarm was sounded at the Phoenix Mission Building in the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium on Sixth Avenue on Tuesday at 10:11 p.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the audible alarm at 10:19 p.m. Upon arrival, the officer inspected the exterior of the building. The officer found two four-by-five dual pane glass windows with high-speed impact damage on the north side of the building. The officer noticed that it seemed that the windows were struck with a BB or slingshot. Only the outer pane of glass was damaged, but the inside pane was still intact. Two more windows on the east side of the building also had damage. The officer checked the inside of the building and found everything in apparent order. No evidence was found around the exterior of the building pertaining to any suspect. The officer found a security camera on the northwest corner of the building and plans to follow up with the footage.
Screaming student slugs solid structure
UAPD officers responded to Coronado Residence Hall concerning an intoxicated male UA student threatening people on Friday at 2:05 a.m. The officers arrived to the dorm and went up to the ninth floor where the man was reported to be. An officer spoke with a witness on the ninth floor who heard a man yelling from a room and went in the hall to investigate. A male UA student missing his shirt was standing down the hall in front of a room yelling at its occupants. The witness told the student to leave. The student then punched the wall. The officer spoke with other officers and advised them that the suspected student may have injuries that are undetectable due to his intoxication. The officers went to check the studentâ€™s room, but it was locked. A Residence Life employee was able to get keys to the room and the officers searched for the student without result. An officer returned to the room where the student was observed yelling and spoke to its residents. The residents said the student came in the room and started yelling about selling drugs. The residents were unsure if they were being threatened because the student was yelling incoherently. The residents said they did not want to press charges. The suspected student was referred to the Dean of Students Office.
Unsuccessful snack run
A UAPD officer was dispatched to Highland Market about a shoplifting student on Jan. 28 at 3:04 a.m. Another officer was already on the scene and had apprehended the suspect. The officer interviewed a Highland Market employee and heard that the staff asked the student to leave because the student was too intoxicated. The student returned later and proceeded to the back of the store. He talked on his cell phone while opening bags of chips and eating them. The chips could no longer be sold because they had been opened, but the student put them back on the shelf. Security cameras are located throughout the store, and all footage was given to UAPD. â€œYeah, I should have paid for it before I ate the chips,â€? the student said. The student was intoxicated but was coherent enough to make rational decisions. The student was cited and released for shoplifting at 3:22 a.m., and took a yellow cab home. He was also referred to the Dean of Students Office.

In the future, your car may be made of mushrooms In the future, mushrooms may be as common in cars as they are on pizza. Believe it or not, scientists who are trying to find more sustainable ways to build car parts believe the answers may be found in things such as mushroom roots. The newest episode of the PBS series “Nova,” which airs Wednesday, focuses on the new discoveries that scientists such as Deborah Mielewski, the technical leader of plastics research at Ford
Motor Co., are working to reduce the carbon tire track that autos leave on the environment. For instance, Mielewski says Ford has been working to find a way to reduce the use of petroleum plastics since 2000, and the work is finally paying off big. “Green plastics used to be unpopular,” Mielewski admitted. “We were used to getting the first meeting with people, but we’d never get invited back. People don’t like to move to new materials.” However, the cost of petroleum

rose at the same time as interest in protecting the environment, and Ford decided to jump on the green trend with some success. Currently, as much as 10 percent of car parts that are typically made from petroleum plastics can now be made from soy-based polyurethane foams or “bioplastic.” In fact, the 2011 Ford Festiva uses bioplastic not only in soft foam seats but also for hard plastic surfaces like the dashboard. — AOL News

READ THE ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT!!! FOOTBALL continued from page 12 Carey wasn’t the only latesigning that elevated Arizona’s 2011 class. The Wildcats also snagged Inglewood, Calif., wide receiver Patrick Onwuasor — who was mulling offers from ASU, Miami (Fla.) and Nebraska, among other schools — and Samoan offensive lineman Lene Maiava. “Patrick (Onwuasor) was another big get this morning,” Stoops said of the 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver. “He’s a great talent, very explosive player.”
While Arizona snatched up key players with the clock winding down, the Wildcats also filled their biggest needs — offensive line, defensive ends and kicker. The Wildcats lost the majority of their offensive line to graduation, but Arizona added four hogmollies to help plug the holes. Maiava, fellow Samoan Faitele Faafoi, Salpointe “raw talent” Jacob Arzouman and junior college lineman Addison Bachman will be the key cogs in the offensive line rebuilding project. “Getting stronger and bigger on the offensive line, we were able to do that,” Stoops said. “The two Polynesian kids from Samoa here at the end, they were just outstanding players. They’re kind of unknown players, I think, but when you see them you’ll understand how important they are to our offensive line and retooling our offensive line.” Stoops also spoke highly of Arzouman, saying he’s “coming into his own,” while citing his upside, attitude and intelligence.
Next the Wildcats took their first step in replacing Brooks Reed and Ricky Elmore, adding four defensive linemen, all of which have the potential to play defensive end. Stoops called junior college defensive lineman Auwae DeRego “paramount for us defensively,” comparing him to Reed in his potential to produce. He also raved about the potential of defensive end Dame Ndiaye saying “he’ll be a dominant pass rusher,” with more experience. No position was more inconsistent than the kicker last season, but that may change with Jaimie Salazar competing with Alex Zendejas for the starting job. Salazar was a second team Junior College AllAmerican out of Trinity Valley Community College. “The percentages that we saw from him were good,” said Stoops, who said Salazar made 46 of 48 field goals last year. “We have to be more accurate from inside the 50, that’s for sure.” The Wildcats also snagged their new starting tight end in 6-foot-4, 230-pound Michael Cooper and “hit a home run” with linebackers Rob Hankins, Hank Hobson and Domonique Petties. Defensive back Cortez Johnson is Arizona’s key acquisition in the secondary. Johnson was the “best DB we recruited,” according to Stoops, and will add another dynamic to a young and exciting secondary. Overall, Stoops hit a homerun landing Carey and addressed a handful of needs in a recruiting class that he said ranks somewhere in the middle of the Pac10. He said his squad is “90 to 95 percent set,” which is a lot of progress for a team reeling from another ugly bowl loss.

HOOPS continued from page 12 averaged 15 points, including back-to-back 17 point outbursts against UCLA and Southern California. “We talked about how both of us have to step up. He’s been aggressive,” said shooting guard Kyle Fogg after Saturday’s win against USC. “He’s always had confidence, his shots are falling, and he’s driving and kicking. He’s doing a great job.” Jones’ improvement in the second half reminds Sean Miller of the Harlem native’s improvement last season. “Very similar to a year ago at this time, he really started to be consistent with his role,” Miller said. “His play (last weekend) was the best weekend we’ve
had with consistent play, with both Momo (Jones) and Jordin (Mayes).” Mayes, a freshman, has scored eight points per game as Jones’ backup this season, serving as a nice complement coming off the bench. Though Jones has improved Arizona’s guard play by scoring, it’s Fogg who started the improved guard play two weeks ago against Washington State with his defense. Fogg held Pac-10 Player of the Year candidate Klay Thompson to 4-for-16 shooting with nine points. “Not many people can hold Klay to nine points,” Williams said. “That’s the reason why we won that game. People said it was my 19 rebounds, but if he didn’t hold Klay (Thompson) to
nine points, we don’t win that game.” Fogg leads the team in assists and knows how to find Williams on the floor better than any Arizona player. “Kyle is one of the key cogs to our wheel,” Miller said. “He defends, plays team ball and I really think he can become a double digit scorer for us.” Miller, who’s been patient with his guards even through the early season struggles, knows that no matter how brilliant Williams is, the play of his guards will determine how far the team goes this season. “When we get that production from our point guard,” Miller said. “We enter a different category as a team when they play well and play confident.”

W-Hoops looks to right ship
Wildcats ready for second half of Pac-10 play After losing five of its last seven games — with all five losses coming on the road — the Arizona women’s basketball team returns home to take on California (13-7, 5-4 Pacific 10 Conference) tonight and No. 4 Stanford (18-2, 9-0 Pac10) on Saturday. “We’ve got to be ready to take advantage of our home-court advantage,” said Arizona coach Niya Butts. “We have to be the aggressor. We have to play well and execute our game plan. If we can do that, it certainly gives you more confidence.” Confidence has never been an issue this season for the Wildcats (13-7, 4-5 Pac-10), but it might be a little lacking after losing at Cal and Stanford — both by at least 20 points — three weeks ago. “We didn’t have a good showing on the West Coast in the regard,” Butts said. “It’s our job to make sure we take care of business on this end. They’re going to be two tough teams coming in here to play, and we have to take advantage of us being at home.” Butts went on to say that playing well at home this weekend could translate into more success on the road as the season wears on. Senior forward Soana Lucet thinks that playing at home could be the cure for Arizona’s recent struggles. “Our routine, our own bed and home court and our fans, it just makes us feel better,” Lucet said. “We just have to focus on what (Butts) has been talking about all year. We have to take care of the things that we can.” Although it’s easier to find a routine playing at home compared to playing on the road, Butts said that there isn’t anything specific the Wildcats do when playing at McKale. “It’s more of the schedule. You know what’s going to happen next

Power forward Soana Lucet and the Wildcats have their work cut out for them as they host California tonight and No. 4 Stanford on Saturday. The Wildcats are undefeated at home and looking for that trend to continue with the Bay Area schools in town.
and you know what to expect,” Butts said of playing at home. “In terms of us being all together, it’s just basically know exactly what you’re going to do and the schedule is set. “There’s no toss-up of when we’re going to be able to get shoot around in, or pre-game is going to be catered in or outside of the hotel, you don’t have to deal with any of those things. You know what you’re doing, and there’s always some comfort in that.” Lucet said that she’s just ready to get back on the court and hopefully take care of business at home.
“We’re undefeated at home so it gives us a little more confidence,” Lucet said. “We’re ready for Cal. We haven’t beat them in a long time, and it’s going to be on.”
The Arizona men’s golf team had to battle high winds, cold temperatures, freezing rain and hail during its first home meet of the season. “The weather won for sure. The weather is just awful,” said head coach Rick LaRose after the first day. “It was cold, it’s rainy, it’s windy, we had hail on the green, it was just a bad day. Our boys played good at times, not consistently as good as we need. It isn’t for a lack of trying.” The Wildcats hosted 13 other teams at the Arizona Intercollegiate, which took place Monday through Tuesday and was won by San Diego State. Play was suspended after the first day due to darkness. Teams were supposed to finish two rounds on the first day and play their last round during the second day. The Wildcats had two teams in the match, with a varsity and junior varsity squad. It’s a rarity the junior varsity team outplayed the varsity team as they finished in third place, shooting 17-over. The
varsity team came in tied for fifth place, shooting 27-over. Senior Stefan Cox led the way for the Wildcats as he finished in second place individually. Cox eventually lost by three shots to Pepperdine’s Andrew Putnam . “Huge learning curve for these kids,” said assistant coach Andy Barnes , on the underclassmen. “Makes them really realize the value of one shot at a time. Big difference between going through practice and shooting a couple under, and all of a sudden you’re in a competition with (these) weather conditions.” The underclassmen really stepped up during the second day. After the first day, LaRose was relying heavily on the upperclassmen to carry the load. “Our older players got to play a little better. Our young guys, they have no experience,” LaRose said. “Have no idea how to play in these kinds of conditions. They never played in when it matters. It’s a learning experience for them.” The next tournament for the team is Monday in Newport Beach, Calif.

GAME TIME Arizona at Stanford 7 p.m., Fox Sports Arizona
BREAKDOWN Arizona at Standford Key players Kyle Fogg, Arizona
When the Wildcats and Cardinal first met this season, Fogg held Stanford’s leading scorer, guard Jeremy Green, to 15 points on 5-for-14 shooting. Green has seen those low shooting percentages as a trend since then, but there’s always a chance he breaks out of his slump and gets hot. Fogg is the man to keep him cool.
Anthony Brown, Stanford
The freshman started his first game last Saturday in Stanford’s 70-56 win over Oregon State, surprising the Beavers for 21 points and playing all but three minutes of the game. If the 6-foot-6, 200 pound wing can keep it up, the Cardinal will have enough offense to drop another firstplace team, just as they did Washington a few weeks back.
Arizona wins if …
The Wildcats can physically wear down the Cardinal. While Cardinal head coach Johnny Dawkins does use his bench, it’s more of a reaction to his team’s youth rather than a way of throwing waves of fresh players into the game, as does UA head coach Sean Miller. Once the Wildcats tire out the Cardinal, that might cause the young Stanford roster to mentally break.
Stanford wins if …
Confidence overcomes the Wildcats. Having won six of its last seven, Arizona is a month away from its last disappointing experience, a loss to the Oregon State Beavers on Jan. 2. Of course there was that Washington defeat, but that wasn’t necessarily unexpected. If Arizona comes out sloppy against a well-coached Stanford team, this could be a game down the stretch. And even with large leads, the Wildcats haven’t finished in the closing moment well their last two games.
• Last weekend’s wins clinched Arizona’s 27th consecutive winning season, dating back to 1984-85. In comparison, Duke’s last losing season was 1994-95, North Carolina’s was 2001-02, and Kentucky’s was 1988-89. •Four of the last ﬁve games UA has played at Maples Pavilion have scoring margins of five points or less, and the Wildcats have gone 3-2 in those contests. •Arizona holds a 52-29 series lead against the Cardinal, winning 10 of the last 14.

Guard play pivotal for Late surge gives UA solid 2011 class Wildcats’ future
Arizona football lands coveted running back Ka’Deem Carey
By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT College basketball revolves around guards. Good guard play can take a team deep into March, and poor guard play can hinder March dreams. Arizona has known what to expect from its frontcourt all season long — dominance from Derrick Williams and great effort from Jesse Perry. In contrast, the Wildcats haven’t been as fortunate in the backcourt. Until recently, UA’s guards have been wildly inconsistent throughout the season, whether it was shooting 1-for-14 from the starting backcourt against New Mexico State or being outplayed by Washington’s guards a few weeks ago. At certain points this season, it was only natural to wonder if Arizona’s best guard play would come with the 2011 recruiting class next season. However, the guards have managed to hush their critics in the last three games. As No. 21 Arizona takes on Stanford tonight, the backcourt is playing their best basketball of the season. Since being outscored 51-17 by Washington’s guards on Jan. 2, the guards have responded in all facets of the game. Sophomore point guard Momo Jones being named Paciﬁc 10 Conference Player of the Week is a sign that the team’s guard play is moving in the right direction. Jones has been a point guard-in-

The 48 hours leading up to Wednesday’s National Signing Day were full of anticipation and drama for UA football’s head coach Mike Stoops and the Wildcats. Arizona ultimately let out a collective sigh of relief in the wee hours of the morning as it made a late push, signing a handful of top-notch recruits in crunch time to round out its 2011 class made up of 22 high school and junior college signees. “Things were starting to unravel a bit, and we were able to pull it together and close with a flurry of players here in the last weekend, and then obviously the last 24 hours,” Stoops said. “I’m really impressed with the way this came together at the end.” No player made Arizona hold its breath more than Canyon Del Oro star running back Ka’Deem Carey. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound elusive back verbally committed to the Wildcats in early June but recently visited ASU and was torn
between the rival schools leading up to Wednesday. Carey held a press conference at Canyon Del Oro on Wednesday afternoon and announced he would choose cardinal and navy over maroon and gold, giving Arizona a muchneeded big-play threat with potential to play — maybe start — as early as next season. “Ka’Deem Carey certainly is one of the highlights of this recruiting class,” Stoops said. “He’s built a strong resume here in Tucson, and I look for him to continue that.” Carey finished his high school career with 5,702 yards and 82 rushing touchdowns , highlighted by a junior season where he racked up 2,741 rushing yards and 43 rushing touchdowns . When asked if Carey could possibly start in 2011, Stoops said, “Sure, I don’t think there’s any question. We have to improve our run game and our ability to make plays. He certainly brings bigplay ability.” Although his decision delivered the most drama, FOOTBALL, page 9
