On Deck Deli tries to boost sales with revamped image

Search for new dean begins

RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

In order to combat an outdated look and falling sales, the Arizona Student Unions is making a variety of remodeling decisions at a deli on campus. Approximately 26 percent of On Deck Deli’s sales, located in the Student Union Memorial Center, come from bagel sales and its sales are down 12 percent from last year, according to Todd Millay, marketing manager of Arizona Student Unions. There are no exact numbers with regards to how many sales On Deck Deli has lost to Einstein Bros Bagels, since there is no proven direct correlation. Sales can only be shown for the restaurant as a whole and include sandwich and bagel sales. However, Millay said it is assumed that most of On Deck’s bagel sales went to Einstein’s. “On Deck Deli has competition from Einstein’s for bagels,” Millay said. “We wanted to spend a little time giving them a little energy, freshness, [before we changed On Deck].” Another factor to declining sales is that On Deck is around 10 years old, according to Millay, and as with any restaurant, there is a trend of declining sales as more time passes. “It’s been there a while and the concepts become stale if you don’t grow,” Millay said.

The search for the new dean of university libraries has begun. Last week, a 20-person search committee for the position of dean of university libraries was chosen, according to Thomas Miller, search committee chair and associate provost. The new dean will be picked and in place before current Dean Carla Stoffle steps down, which means there will be no interim dean. There is expected to be approximately 10-15 Skype interviews conducted and the finalists will have a public forum by mid-April. The search committee will consider both outside and internal candidates for the position and is comprised of both library faculty and faculty from other departments, as well as a student. Some commented on the skills Stoffle brought to the position. “She’s [Stoffle] incredibly well

STUDENTS ORDER SANDWICHES at On Deck Deli between classes. On Deck Deli follows an assembly line process, allowing students to customize their order with a wide selection of breads, meats, cheese, veggies and dressings. Two and a half months went into planning the project and it took the designer about a month of trial and error before the concept was finished, according to Millay. “We knew we wanted to do something with it to freshen it up to help reintroduce what they do over there,” Millay said. “What drove it

was the gluten-free and the grab and go. We’re responding to a couple of student patterns and we had the opportunity to integrate those at On Deck Deli and we said ‘Let’s freshen up the whole operation while we add these two.’” Gluten-free and to-go food options were incorporated in to the

Professors debate religion, science SHELBY THOMAS Arizona Daily Wildcat

Crowder Hall opened its doors to those curious about religion and science, and how they intersect at a campus event Monday night. The event, “Love Thy Neighbor? Biology, Altruism, and Why We Do Good,” drew a large audience that filled every seat in the

lecture hall. Students, faculty, and community members witnessed a discussion between Jeff Schloss, a distinguished professor and T.B. Walker chair of biology at Westmont College, and Anna Dornhaus, an associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the UA . These two scientists brought contrasting perspectives to the discussion in order to carry out a well-rounded debate. Many on-campus organizations, including

Chi Alpha, Cru, Christian Challenge, Graduate Christian Fellowship and others, worked diligently to coordinate and host the free event. They sponsored the Veritas Forum, an organization that works to “engage students and faculty in discussions about life’s hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life,” according to its website.

Award recognizes advisers excelling in student help Kayla Samoy

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Recognizing advisers who go beyond recommending classes is one method the UA has implemented to improve academic advising across campus. The UA advising system underwent major changes 10 years ago and adviser recognition is just one part of the revamp. UA students can nominate advisers through the UA Program for Excellence in Academic Advising. The nomination deadline is Feb. 8 at 5 p.m. The Recognition Committee from the University Academic Advising Counsel selects the best nominated advisers who each receive $500 with the award. “We’re trying to recognize excellence and find places that are doing things that students are responding to, and growing those,” said Roxie Catts, director of the Advising Resource Center and coordinator of Undergraduate Academic Advising. In recent years, the addition of around 40 positions has almost doubled in the number of advisers. However, survey data states that accessibility to advisers is an issue for some departments, according to Catts. “If students can get to an adviser they’re usually happy. It’s the not getting to them that makes them unhappy,” Catts said. Students in departments in which advisers have larger caseloads have to wait longer to see their adviser and appointment scheduling can be particularly challenging during priority registration. The College of Education is one department that has priority advising. “It was frustrating for me because I just wanted to go in and get it taken care of,” said Katherine Larned, a pre-education freshman. “I had to wait a month before I actually got an appointment time.” Advising varies from college to college on campus. Each department has its own culture and needs, Catts said. As a result, there are different methods. Eller College of Management has career coaches who mentor students, offer advice on resumes and give interviewing tips, while other colleges have online resources that can help students with basic questions. While developing tools to supplement the advising process is important and helps with an adviser’s caseload, “at the end of the day, there’s nothing that replaces the one-onone conversation,” Catts said.

Alan Beaudrie, undergraduate coordinator in the College of Public Health, was recognized with an award in 2012 for his advising work.

However, the changing college environment has affected how advising works. The recommendation of 400 students in an adviser’s caseload means something different in today’s standards than it did five years ago, according to Catts. “It’s a more complicated world,” she said. “There’s more at stake for students.” Alan Beaudrie, undergraduate coordinator in the College of Public Health, was recognized last year for his advising work. Advisers are in a unique position on campus; every student has one and advisers are expected to know about

Jim Firnstahl, a member of the UA’s Veritas Forum, spoke about the main goal of the night’s program. “The reason we put these on is to stimulate questions in people’s minds that they already have about the meaning of life,” Firnstahl said, “What we’d like them to come away with is the idea that there is a larger picture beyond themselves.“ This is the fourth year the Veritas Forum has been to the UA campus and after last year’s success with a debate-style forum, this year’s event was organized in the same way. The audience was also able to text questions to the scientists while those who did not get a seat could stream the video through a webcast, Firnstahl added. The event began with the introduction of both speakers and their own perspectives regarding altruism, or the intent to help someone even at a personal cost. In Dornhaus’ introductory statement, she defended the evolutionary theory of altruism by using examples of animal behavior in history. She acknowledged the idea that altruism is a trait that could have been passed down through generations and although people have control over their specific actions, brain wiring plays a distinct role in their desire to do good. She did not identify herself as linked to one particular religion. Schloss, who identifies as a Christian, distinguished biological trends as valid, but ultimately supported the idea that beliefs and religion lead to genuine altruism, which suggests that humans are capable of acting out of their own hearts. Following their introductions, Dornhaus and Schloss participated in a conversation with each other that further debated the influence of biology on altruism. After the scientists finished their discussion, the floor was open for audience members to ask questions. Dornhaus acknowledged the significance of this very candid and raw portion of the program. “I think it is important to engage students and other members of the campus community intellectually and allow them to think about daily issues and how science and research relate to them directly and indirectly,” she said. One audience member proposed the idea that humanity is incapable of doing things out of the good of their own hearts, to which Dornhaus responded by saying that there is a sense of pessimism that many associate with people that she doesn’t agree with. Both scientists agreed that time will lead to further discussions regarding altruism, but the kindness of the human heart, biological or not, should not be undermined.

academic requirements as well as outside opportunities, Beaudrie said. Increases in tuition mean students have to work more and they’re juggling more, so stress and pressure is higher. The work environment is uncertain and more competitive, which means advisers need to know more these days to meet students’ needs. Effective advising now focuses on the holistic, which means going beyond simply scheduling next semester’s classes, Catts said. “Advising can be so much more,” Beaudrie said. “It’s about helping students have the best college experience possible.”

Rosa Parks honored with stamp MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

DETROIT — Nearly 500 people, both dignitaries and ordinary citizens, packed the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on Monday to honor civil rights legend Rosa Parks and witness the unveiling of a postage stamp in her honor. “When she sat down, she made the whole country stand up for what is right,” said Congressman Gary Peters, D-Mich., one of several local and national officials who spoke at the unveiling. City Council President JoAnn Watson presented a resolution declaring Monday Rosa Parks Day in Detroit. “Mother Parks was a revolutionary,” said Watson, noting that her work as an activist continued well after she moved to Detroit in 1956. Monday would have been Parks’ 100th birthday. Elaine Steele, who co-founded the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development, challenged those present to continue Parks’ fight

for justice by joining and supporting the Detroit-based institute. “Together we must carry forth the legacy,” Steele said. Former Detroit Deputy Mayor Adam Shakoor said her spirit remains with the people. “I believe she is still with us,

encouraging us to be courageous, to love each other, to move forward, and to progress, not just the race, but the human race,” said Shakoor, who also had been an attorney for Parks. Several of Parks’ family members were present for the unveiling. “This stamp is a great part of

Study: Israeli, Palestinian textbooks lack objectivity MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

JERUSALEM — Israeli and Palestinian textbooks get failing grades when it comes to adequately and positively representing each other’s people, culture and history, according to a three-year, U.S-funded study released Monday. On the bright side, researchers concluded that most schoolbooks on both sides were factually accurate, even though they usually described each other in negative, unflattering terms and typically cast each other as the “enemy.” Extremely negative material, such as demonization, incitement to violence or depicting the other side as subhuman, were rare in both Israeli and Palestinian books, the report found. Israeli officials, who frequently claim Palestinian textbooks espouse hatred, rejected the study’s conclusions as biased. Palestinian Authority officials said the study vindicated their assertion that their textbooks are as fair and balanced as Israel’s. The report found both sides lacking in objectivity and balance. Neither side scored particularly well in geography with 94 percent of Palestinian textbook maps failing to identify the existence of Israel and 87 percent of Israeli maps lacking any mention of Palestine or the Palestinian territories. Neither side’s textbooks devoted adequate attention to the idea of living together in harmony, researchers said. “Peaceful co-existence ... is completely ignored,” said Sami Adwan, a professor at Bethlehem University, who participated in the research with Daniel Bar-Tal, a professor at Tel Aviv University, and Bruce E. Wexler, a senior research scientist at Yale School of Medicine. Funded with a $500,000 U.S. State Department grant, the project analyzed 94 Palestinian textbooks and 74 from Israel, including some from public state-run schools and some from ultra-Orthodox institutions. Ultra-Orthodox schools have a large degree of autonomy in setting their own curriculum

and now instruct nearly one-third of Israeli’s students, the study found. The research was conducted by Israelis and Palestinians, who cross-checked each other’s work to reduce potential bias. The study was initiated by the Jerusalem-based Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land, the Palestinian Authority and various Christian churches. Israel refused to take part. A negative characterization of “the other” was common in most of the textbooks, though negative portrayals were lowest in Israeli state school textbooks (49 percent) compared with ultra-Orthodox textbooks (73 percent) and those in Palestinian schools in the West Bank and Gaza Strip (84 percent), the study found. Israeli officials attacked the study even before it officially was released, insisting that their textbooks were superior to Palestinians’ and should not be compared in the same study. In a statement, the Ministry of Education called the research “biased, unprofessional and severely nonobjective. ... The attempt at creating parallels between the Israeli and Palestinian education systems is ungrounded and lacks a realistic basis.” Jerusalem physician Elihu Richter, who served on the advisory panel for the project, said Monday he withdrew his support for the report because he believed the methodology may have undercounted examples of Palestinian incitement. Researchers defended their project, calling it the most definitive and balanced study to date on the topic. Wexler, the Yale researcher, criticized Israel’s refusal to participate. “The Ministry of Education appears to be uninterested in facts about what is in the schoolbooks and unencumbered by facts when describing our project,” Wexler said. Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad praised the report for examining the issue without “preconceived notions and stereotypes.” He said Palestinians would use the findings to help improve their curriculum.

history,” said her cousin, Loretta White. “It’s wonderful to be here to see it.” After the official unveiling, people crowded the stage to take pictures of the stamp, and later lined up in the foyer to purchase the forever stamps. Later, people lined up to purchase

the stamps. A husband-wife couple purchased the stamps for different reasons. “I am a stamp collector,” said artist Mark Mardirosian, 59, of Grosse Pointe Park, who purchased stamps and pre-stamped commemorative envelopes. But his wife, attorney Elaine Mardirosian, 57, was there to honor Parks. “I’m here to honor and acknowledge this wonderful woman,” she said. During the ceremony, U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said he had been inspired by Parks. Hartford Baptist Church pastor emeritus Charles Adams called Parks the midwife in the birth of the greatest civil rights leader since Jesus. “If there had been no Rosa Parks, there would have been no Martin Luther King Jr.,” Adams said in an interview after the ceremony. “And her feet weren’t hurting; she said, ‘What hurts is to be mistreated.’” Activities celebrating Parks will continue at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Mich., where a second unveiling of the stamp will take place.

respected, influential nationally and within the state,” Miller said. “20 years is a long run for a dean.” Stoffle has been the dean of university libraries since 1991. After the first of July, Stoffle said she will transition into being a professor in the School of Information Resources and Library Science. She is stepping down because it has been a “long time,” and it is time for a fresh start, Stoffle said. Stoffle said she would advise the next dean to “trust and believe” in the library faculty. After she steps down, Stoffle said she will take a sabbatical so she can start writing a book. She will return to the UA as a professor for the fall 2014 semester. Those who have worked with Stoffle praised her innovations and contribution to the library. One of Stoffle’s biggest

accomplishments was helping the libraries transition from print to digital resources. “I know she [Stoffle] was really instrumental in seeing way before it happens, seeing the revolution of the Internet,” assistant librarian Yvonne Mery said. “I know a lot of folks didn’t quite believe her when she first started saying that.” Melanie Hupp, the dean’s administrative assistant of seven and a half years, said it has been a “privilege” to work with the dean, and that she “admires” her commitment to the university. “I am enormously proud of the people that we have recruited [and] I have worked with here, and I am proud of our relationship with students and the work we have done with student leaders and involving students in the library,” Stoffle said.

Student loan debt reform is investment in the future

NATHANIEL DRAKE Arizona Daily Wildcat

S

tudent loan debt is the largest consumer debt burden in the nation, which, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, hit the $1 trillion mark a few months ago. The number trounces the nation’s credit card debt of $693 billion and total auto loan balances of $730 billion, according to a report by the FRBNY Consumer Credit Panel in March 2012. Yet there’s an important difference between student loan debt and all other forms of consumer debt. Upon filing for bankruptcy, all of your credit card debt and auto loans can be discharged, while your student loan debt cannot be unless it is determined to be an undue burden on you or your dependents. This policy puts lower income households at a disadvantage and is threatening to be the cause of the next major financial meltdown. Recently, there has been a push from Democrats in the Senate to change this. The Fairness for Struggling Students Act of 2013, which is sponsored by Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Sheldon Whitehouse (DR.I.) and Jack Reed (D-Ill.) would reverse a change made in 2005 that made discharging private student loans all but impossible. Federal loans haven’t been eligible for discharge through bankruptcy since 1978, though this bill would not change that. The bill is getting support from some unusual places. Martha Holler, a spokeswoman for Sallie Mae, a major private student loan lender, told the Wall Street Journal that the company is in favor of “reform that would allow federal and private student loans to be dischargeable in bankruptcy for those who have made a good faith effort to repay their student loans over a five-to seven-year period and still experience financial difficulty.” This isn’t an excuse to simply take out a bunch of student loans and use them to travel the world only to declare bankruptcy later, though. A good faith effort, which is determined by a judge, includes a close look at your expenditures and what attempts you’ve made to earn a higher income. Even under this bill you would have to be legitimately struggling for at least five years to get relief. Many students graduating in May with an average $27,253 in debt, a 58 percent increase since 2005 according to a report from the Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO). Forbes magazine reports that 15 percent of these loans were more than 90 days past due between 2010 and 2012. The Project on Student Debt estimated in November that about 33 percent of students graduated college with private student loan debt in 2011. About one-third of UA students will enter a sluggish economy with high post-graduate unemployment with private student loans that frequently have double digit interest rates. They will also see poor or no deferment options held by companies that have no incentive to work out a reasonable payment plan as discharging them is next to impossible. This leads to new college graduates taking years to begin putting money back into the economy by purchasing homes and other goods beyond the bare necessities, and that isn’t helping an already slow economic growth rate. This doesn’t doesn’t make America sound much like the fabled land of opportunity — it sounds more like the financial hell usually reserved for people trying to evade child support or criminal fines. Denying post-grads any chance of having private student loans discharged isn’t doing any favors for the economy. Since the government has been unable to combat rising tuition costs, it should at least help us out with student loans after a good faith effort has been made. — Nathaniel Drake is a sophomore studying political science and communications.

In response to “U of A Cadets praise women in combat decision” (by Ryan Revock, Feb. 4): In his article, Ryan Revock gave a potential scenario of a female soldier engaging an enemy while serving as vehiclemounted machine gunner in Afghanistan. The author then pointed out that this could be reality after the recent Department of Defense announcement to replace gender based barriers to service. The reality is that scenarios just like this have been going for the last decade in both Iraq and Afghanistan. As a company commander in Iraq from 2003-2004 every combat logistics patrol (convoy) from my unit that went into harm’s way had women in them. As a battalion executive officer in Afghanistan from 20092010, the same applied. The point being is that women have already been serving in

positions of direct combat with the enemies of our nation. And they have done it with courage, distinction, selfless service and commitment, equally, and in some cases better, than their male counterparts. I, just like my cadets, praise the decision of the Department of Defense to allow women more opportunities to serve wherever and in whatever positions they choose. Not everyone can serve in the infantry or armor, but everyone should be given the opportunity to try. Sincerely, Major Ben Walters, UA Army ROTC Professor of Military Science In response to “Lulu app might prevent men from getting the chance they deserve” (by K.C. Libman, Jan. 28): We are writing in response to the comments that followed the article, “Lulu app might prevent men from getting the chance they deserve” — particularly the comments that dismiss and minimalize rape.

PULSE OF THE PAC Here’s what opinions are bouncing around the other schools in our conference. Republican messages were questioned and lauded in the south, while racism was discussed in the north. My ‘yellow brick road’: Republicanism By Haley Mills

Republicans need to revise message By Sarah Cueva

Everyone can be racist By Adam Johnson

5. We do things differently. I can’t even count how many times during the health care reform debates I was told, “We are the only developed country that doesn’t have socialized health care.” Yeah, and we are the only country that can get pizza delivered before an ambulance shows up. People should want to be like us. 4. We believe in fairy tales. You can become something from nothing. No government assistance necessary. They call that the American Dream. 3. We pick the BMW over the bandwagon. We’d rather ride past in our hard-earned Beamer than jump on the latest bandwagon. You might say we weren’t invited by the cool kids, but morals and ethics are cool. 50 Cent knows this, reportedly calling George W. Bush a “gangsta” a while back. We can roll with that. 2. Brain cells. I’m going to remember my schooling in a year. I went to class, and I wasn’t drunk or stoned. This may sound like a negative for you young partying Democrats, but some day you’ll need a job when you get off the dole. 1. Looks aren’t a thing. When people sing in Disney movies about wanting people to see who they really are inside, they are talking about Republicans. Don’t get me wrong we have some hotties — have you seen the Romney sons? — but we don’t vote for people because they are attractive. We vote for them because they are successful. We’ve got our priorities straight.

Written in regards to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) calling the Republican Party, the “stupid party”: The Republican Party must accept the fact that continuing to promote policies like “traditional marriage” will only alienate young voters who might be attracted to the Republicans’ otherwise principled devotion to limited government and individual freedom. The most intelligent thing that the Republican Party could do is to adapt to our present realities. That does not mean compromising its fundamental principles, as Jindal correctly states, but it does require some revisions to avoid ideological inconsistency and attract dedicated followers in the future. That means returning to a platform that truly espouses limited government: no more corporate welfare, no more government interference in the love lives of mutually consenting adults and no more spending increases where they are not absolutely necessary. Far from being stupid, the foundational ideals of the Republican Party are arguably the most commonsensical ones for restoring and maintaining a prosperous and free America. It is time to stand on a platform that communicates this clearly and unequivocally, and Jindal’s statement is a step in the right direction.

It is inherently divisive, framing the struggle to attain power as whites versus everyone else. It is also disempowering to minorities. By arguing that minorities have no power with which to be racist, we forget instances in which minorities clearly do have power. My colleague Annie Graham was guilty of this in a recent op-ed. She began a column on abortion with “so these nine white guys walk into a room,” in reference to the Roe v. Wade justices. Neglected in her statement was the fact that one of the nine justices, Thurgood Marshall, was black. While I can only hypothesize Annie’s ultimate thoughts on race relations, she has in all likelihood been exposed to the leftist communities at Stanford who advance the ideology that “only whites can be racist.” I myself was introduced to that phrase at Stanford, and in my time here I have heard it mentioned many times. Its corollary — that every decision of consequence is brought about by “white guys in a room” — is also quite common... By giving weight to the belief that only whites can be racist, that only white people have power, we are not only being intellectually dishonest and generating racial tension, but beginning to forget the influence that minorities have exercised in guiding this and other nations. Though by all means we should not forget the struggles minorities have faced, we should also refuse to accept flawed and divisive ideology that comes at the expense of reason and equality.

YOUR VIEWS FROM PAGE 4

problem is not the technology directed at rating men or women on attractiveness or marriage prospects, but it is the environment many people foster — an environment that believes our rape culture is a myth or that feminists are creating, purposefully, a fear campaign against men. In 2011, the United States Census Bureau reported approximately 158.9 million women/girls and 152.7 million men/ boys (311.6 million total) in the resident population of the United States. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations, an estimated 84,767 forcible rapes (the carnal knowledge of a person forcibly and against their will; excludes statutory rape) were reported to law enforcement in 2010. According to the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men will be raped with current patterns. A 2000 survey commissioned by the United States Department of Justice found 20 percent of college women and 15 percent of college men are victims of forced rape. Those are just the reported cases. This is not a minority of the population making up numbers based on ideology and guesswork; it is fact, it is the culture we live in and continue to allow to germinate. A rape culture will exist as long as people hide from it or make excuses for it. It will exist as long as rape jokes, slut shaming, and victimization endure. Rape and sexual assault continue at high rates, domestically and abroad. It is not something that should be accepted among our educated population. We, as the next generation of leaders, must become advocates of social justice and equity by not allowing others to minimize this epidemic of violence. Sincerely, The F.O.R.C.E.

Arizona Daily Wildcat • 5 empathy” (by Kristina Bui, Feb. 4): I agree with the message of your column, and these kinds of posts are why I’ve never been interested in UA Confessions. I am a little confused about your opening sentence, though. The Internet doesn’t corrupt otherwise wholesome people and force them to make these comments; it simply presents them in a way that is harder to ignore because they are available for a broader audience to read for a longer period of time (as compared to someone making this kind of comment verbally in passing). Perhaps if as a society we spent less time villianizing the internet we could spend more of it worrying about the people who make these kinds of comments. Empathy has been a problem for people long before computers. —Janae Phillips

In response to “From the newsroom: Online comments policy will help keep discussion relevant, mature” (by Lynley Price, Feb. 4): “If a comment ‘discriminates against a group on the basis of gender, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or other identity’ it will be removed.” Ah, yes, the “Speech Police” strikes again. Seriously; why not just shut down ALL comments? The Wildcat will make for a really boring ‘PC’ read, anyway. Why not limit discussions to the permiability of beach sand?

Police Beat MAXWELL J MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Off on the wrong foot

A man was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and having an outstanding warrant while near Sixth Street and Campbell Avenue at 11:15 a.m. on Jan. 30. The University of Arizona Police Department noticed the man’s Chrysler Aspen traveling 51 mph in a 35 mph zone. Police pulled the driver over. The man said he was aware of his suspended license but was traveling to the hospital to have his “slightly swollen” foot examined. A records check confirmed the man’s suspended license, in addition to a warrant from the Department of Public Safety. The driver was then arrested for both the warrant and the new charge of driving with a suspended license. He was taken to Pima County Jail and his vehicle was towed.

Cat (Card) burglar

A UA student at Highland Market on Jan. 31 reported that his CatCard had been stolen. The student said he’d last seen his card at Yavapai Residence Hall at 5 p.m. the day prior. The man was unsure where it had gone, but had “retraced his steps” and checked his pockets. He then went to the CatCard office to report the missing item and was informed it had been used. This transaction occurred at Highland Market at 6:45 p.m. on Jan. 30. The man said he doesn’t want to pursue criminal charges, but did want to report the activity to have his money refunded. The officer told the student to obtain a copy of his CatCard activity and provide it to UAPD for evidence.

Swiped Schwinn

A non-UA affiliate reported that his red bike had been stolen from outside the Education building at 12:16 p.m. on Jan. 30. UAPD spoke with the man by phone, who said he’d secured his Schwinn mountain bike on a bike rack on the east side of the building at 11 a.m. Upon returning to the area at 12:15 p.m., both the bike and cable lock had been stolen. He valued the bike at $400. The man was able to provide a serial number for the bike and it was entered into the National Crime Information Center. A victim’s rights form was then filled and mailed to the man. There are no suspects or witnesses.

Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at www.uapd.arizona.edu.

Whyte moves into second-place in UA’s all-time scoring records james kelley Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona women’s basketball has lost five games in a row and faces a daunting trip to No. 4 Stanford and No. 6 California this weekend, but there will likely be a silver lining for the UA. Senior guard Davellyn Whyte is poised to become the Wildcats’ No. 2 all-time scorer. Whyte, who has scored 1,926 points, moved into third on Arizona’s all-time charts on Friday against Washington. No. 2 DeeDee Wheeler had 1,966 points. “I think it’s pretty cool,” Whyte said. “I honestly don’t know anything about it until someone tells me about it. We just need to get a couple more wins and then we’ll feel better.” Whyte was averaging 16.2 points per game heading into last weekend’s games, where she scored 20 against Washington and 17 against Washington State. “She’s been huge,” head coach Niya Butts said. “Obviously in order to score that number of points you have to be able to do some things on the basketball court.” Adia Barnes, the all-time leading scorer in Arizona history with 2,237 points, was at Friday’s game as an assistant coach for the Huskies. Right now, Barnes is the only member of UA’s 2,000-point club. “I think it’s great, you know as a player you don’t think about those things, so I’m just shocked that it lasted that long,” Barnes said. “I think that she’s a great player, so to even think that I have 2,000 points … is just an honor.” Barnes is the color commentator for the Seattle Storm and also was an announcer for college basketball on Fox Sports Northwest and ROOT Sports.

Recruiting to help UA end streak james kelley Arizona Daily Wildcat

ildcat hockey is having its best season in years, but one huge blemish taints it for Arizona. The UA hasn’t beaten rival ASU in 30 games, dating back to 2009. The good news is that the streak won’t last long. It could end in Tucson in a

few weeks; it was a called-back goal away from happening Friday. It could end in Chicago at the national tournament or it could happen next year. It will end, though. ASU is by far the best team Arizona has played this year. The Sun Devils are relentless

and able to capitalize on errors by a young Wildcat squad that has blown multi-goal leads against top 10 teams five times in 2013. Arizona State stocked its roster with junior level stars and transfers from NCAA teams. The Sun Devils play with freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors who were recruited. Arizona has had one recruiting class, this season’s. Hogan, who wasn’t able to recruit last year, said Arizona is competing with ASU for three or four players right now. On paper it doesn’t seem

like much of a fight, as the Sun Devils have been No. 1 most of the season and have the winning streak on their side. But if Hogan sends video clips of games from Tucson and Tempe to recruits, the tide turns heavily in Arizona’s favor. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine the Sun Devils beating Arizona for any players now that Arizona is actually recruiting. The atmosphere Saturday night felt more like the women’s basketball game Friday than an Arizona/ASU hockey game. The

Swimming splits dual meets in Texas evan rosenfeld Arizona Daily Wildcat

drew gyorke/arizona Daily Wildcat

THE ARIZONA MEN defeated SMU, but lost to No. 7 Texas over the weekend, in which Wildcats Ashley Evans and Micahel Meyer qualified for NCAA championships.

Two more Wildcat swimmers have qualified for NCAA national cuts this past weekend, as Arizona split its dual meet with SMU and Texas at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas. The No. 1 nationally ranked men defeated SMU 165-134, but fell to No. 7 Texas 166-125. Arizona’s No. 5 women followed in similar fashion, demolishing SMU 230-58 while falling to No. 10 Texas 154-146. Junior Ashley Evans and freshman Michael Meyer performed well enough to qualify for NCAA Championships, each setting season best times in their respective events. Evans finished first in the 200-yard butterfly event by nearly four seconds, compiling a time of 1:56.83 and subsequently setting a new personal best record. “I’m glad we’ve got at least two more qualifications this weekend,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “I felt confident in Ashley Evans’ and Michael Meyer’s performances. Andrew Sovero could also qualify from his swims last weekend. He posted some really good times too. We are looking forward to the championship season.” “I surprised myself a lot this weekend with my 200 fly, and I was really happy with it,” Evans said. “It was my first qualification, so it felt awesome.”

Hoops back in Pac-12 title mix Kyle Johnson Arizona Daily Wildcat

W

ith nine games down and nine games remaining, it’s officially the midway point of the conference season for the No. 7 Arizona men’s basketball team. With that in mind, it’s time to dole out some hardware for some of the best, and worst, in the first month of Pac-12 play. Conference Title favorite: Arizona While the Wildcats entered Pac-12 play as a co-favorite with UCLA, the UA hasn’t stayed in that top spot the whole time. In fact, the Wildcats just slid back into first as the other three favorites — Oregon, UCLA and, to a lesser extent, Arizona State — all crumbled in the past week. As the season progresses, Arizona’s nonconference resume continues to improve. As of this week, the Wildcats beat three teams that are either leading or tied for first in their respective conferences, giving the UA a top-5 RPI. What hasn’t been as impressive is the Wildcats’ play in conference games. They were beaten handily by the two other power players in the Pac-12 (Oregon and UCLA) and squeaked out home victories against Colorado and Utah. But right now, every other team seems to be hitting a mid-season lull while the Wildcats continue to win. Senior Mark Lyons isn’t a true point guard and the freshman big men are turning into role players, not difference-makers, but that’s really as far as the complaints go. This team still has the most talent in the Pac-12, a great mix of experience and youth and strong leadership with Lyons, forward Solomon Hill and head coach Sean Miller. It wasn’t easy, but with a 7-2 conference record (which ties the UA with Oregon), the Wildcats are back to where they started — at the top. Pac-12 Player of the Year: UCLA’s Guard/Forward Shabazz Muhammad Right now Shabazz Muhammad is the best player in the Pac-12, and it’s really not even close. The freshman phenom is second in the conference in scoring (18.4 points per game), the alpha dog on one of the Pac-12’s best teams and he should continue to get better as he gets more college experience. What truly separates Muhammad from the rest of the field, though, is the ease and efficiency in which he scores. The freshman is shooting 46.9 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from three and 72.0 percent from the line, all while rebounding well (4.8 boards per game) and avoiding turnovers (1.8 per game). Muhammad’s performance in the Pac-12’s marquee game of the season thus far (UCLA at Arizona) solidifies his stranglehold on the award. Muhammad shined in the spotlight, scoring 23 points on 50 percent shooting and he changed the entire flow of the game when he was on the court. Unless UCLA collapses, or one of the Wildcats’ big three separates himself, this will be Muhammad’s award when the season ends. Pac-12 Coach of the Year: ASU’s Herb Sendek Right now, this is a two-man race between ASU’s Herb Sendek and Oregon’s Dana Altman. Prior to this past weekend, Altman looked to have the edge. But with the Ducks’ lackluster play (1-2) since losing freshman Dominic Artis to a foot injury, it’s looking like they’ve lost their hold on the conference title and Altman’s award. The Sun Devils also missed a golden opportunity Saturday, as a close loss to Washington ruined ASU’s chance to be tied for the Pac12 lead. Still, if things stay where they are, Sendek’s case is more impressive than Altman’s. Entering the season, Sendek’s coaching seat wasn’t just hot — it was on fire. But thanks to the brilliant play of freshman point guard Jahii Carson (the most realistic player to take Muhammad’s POY crown) and the veteran presences of forward Carrick Felix and center Jordan Bachynski, Sendek has the Sun Devils massively exceeding expectations. Arizona State already has the same amount of conference wins as last season (four) while playing

fans cheered a bit after Sun Devils’ goals, but really only got into it when there was a last-minute fight between teams. ASU’s Oceanside Arena is neither near an ocean or an arena. It’s a small local rink where most of the signage is for a youth club. The crowd was supposedly more raucous on the side opposite the benches and the media area, but the rink is so small — pucks routinely hit the ceiling — that we should have been able hear them. It wasn’t unusually quiet and Hogan said the atmosphere didn’t seem that different Saturday night in ASU’s 5-1 win, versus its 4-3, overtime, three-goal comeback win the night before. Even a light Arizona hockey crowd bested a packed Oceanside. A thousand fans at the Madhouse is a bad night for the UA, but even in the full arena-sized Tucson Convention Center, they are louder than the same amount of fans at ASU. Arizona will host ASU on Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 at the “Madhouse on Main Street,” and while it might not be on Main Street, it is a mad house. — James Kelley is a history senior.

Meyer was given his first opportunity to compete as a Wildcat two weeks ago against Cal and has begun to create a name for himself, winning the 400IM in his first race with Arizona. The South African native added to his freshman campaign, placing first in the 200y-butterfly event with a time of 1:44.38, the best time by an Arizona swimmer in the

event this season. Meyer followed up with first place in the 400IM, besting teammates Andrew Porter and Eric Solis while compiling a time of 3:46.29. “I think we swam really well for where we are at in our preparation for NCAA’s,” Hansen said. “We just need to rest. The work has been put in and now it’s all about attention to details.” In order to participate in the NCAA National Championships, swimmers must perform well enough in their event and score a time low enough to qualify for either an “A cut” or a “B cut.”

“It was a real relief to qualify,” Meyer said. “Now I can focus on my training and won’t have any more distractions. My main goal is to score some points for the team at NC’s and maybe get a record or two there.” Meanwhile, Sovero also impressed this weekend, earning his top time so far this year and first top finish in the 100y-breaststroke event this season with a time of 53.63. “I think all in all, we did really great,” Evans said. “We had a lot of energy and it was a great environment to swim fast. Everyone took advantage of it.”

pro player. She’s really tough to guard, one on one. I think that she has a bright future.” Even though she was hurting Friday, Whyte still scored 20 points, her fourth-best output of the season. Whyte left the game with an ankle injury but two days later she said she was fine. “I think that she’ll be a good pro because she’s strong in her body,” Barnes said. “I just hope that she’s healthy; that’s unfortunate for her senior year. The whole game it didn’t look like she’s 100 percent, you could see with her gait and her turnovers and I was hurt a lot so I know, I can see.” Arizona’s 2,000-point club is small, but Barnes said she would like to help Whyte in any way possible after the season. “You just want to see a player like her play to her full potential and I think that if she plays healthy, she’ll break a ton of records,” Barnes said. “But she’ll have a chance to play long beyond, for many years and I hope she does. And if I can ever help her or be a resource for her later, I definitely will be … I would love to because I wish I would have had that coming out of school here.”

A. high levels, chances are you will still have alcohol in your bloodstream after you wake up the next day. The liver If your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) climbs to

eliminates alcohol from the bloodstream, but it doesn’t work as fast as we might like. Example A: if a 120 pound woman has 7 standard drinks (that’s six 1.5 oz. shots of 80 proof vodka) while partying on Saturday until midnight, her BAC will peak at 0.26. That’s more than 3 times the legal DUI limit of 0.08 BAC and high enough to cause her to blackout. If she goes to bed at 2am and sleeps 8 hours, she will wake up at 10am Sunday morning with a BAC of about .10. She will still be drunk and over the legal DUI limit. Based on the amount of alcohol she drank, her weight, and her gender, it will take about 17 hours for her BAC to return to zero. She won’t be sober until 5pm on Sunday afternoon.

Had she limited her drinking to 3 shots of vodka, it would take seven hours to return to zero BAC and she would wake up at 10am feeling much better, without any alcohol in her bloodstream. Most people who drink moderately (one drink an hour for women, or 2 drinks an hour for men) rarely wake up impaired or hung over.

Example B: if a 160 pound man has 7 standard drinks (7 cans of Keystone Light beer on Saturday night), his BAC will peak at 0.16 (more than double the legal DUI limit of 0.08 BAC). If he stops drinking at midnight, gets a ride from a designated driver, goes to bed at 2am and sleeps 8 hours, he will wake at 10am Sunday morning with a BAC of about .01. Not quite zero, but almost. When it comes to recovering from drinking, most men have advantages over women: men typically weigh more and metabolize alcohol at a faster rate. Drinking a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink is a good way to prevent hangovers and moderate overall alcohol consumption.

Battle royale: How to deal with fighting in your relationship AMY JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

So, the unavoidable happened. Maybe it was a total blow out. Maybe this is a daily routine for the two of you, or maybe it was brought on by something totally miniscule and ridiculous. Either way, you and your significant other are in a fight. You and your loved one storm off, leaving you with an unfathomable amount of alone time that would otherwise be spent cuddling and whispering sweet nothings in each other’s ear. Now you’re at a loss of what to do until the dust settles and the two of you can retreat back to each other as per usual. Below is a compilation of things to do while you wait for your partner to make the first move, since God knows that won’t be for a while.

the first to apologize. You should not take back what you said. Even if you’re blatantly wrong in your statements, you have the right to be opinionated. Backing down shows him that he can actually be right sometimes.

Back in high school, this would be a common occurrence after getting into head-butting spats with your parents. Long drives can help you clear your head and get away from your significant other for a while. Take Rodney Atkins’ advice and put a little gravel in your travel.

6. Be productive.

2. Eat.

Clean your room, respond to emails, actually do your assigned readings for once, discover new music, rediscover old music and put Martha Stewart’s organizational skills to shame. The possibilities are endless.

Taco Bell, Kit Kat Bars, Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Therapy; trash the cardboard frozen dinners and get over to McDonald’s for an Oreo McFlurry. No one’s around to judge or even give you dirty looks as you shovel down food faster than a gravedigger shovels graves. Just eat. And because a pity party isn’t complete until you’re eating and crying …

7. Shop online.

Sure, you’ll wallow in self-deprecation and buyer’s remorse after the purchase is said and done, but ogling new clothes is to a depressed female like a wide open, grassy plain is to a Sarah3. Cry.

eading a fantasy series is always an undertaking, but none is quite so involved as “The Wheel of Time.” It’s a sprawling 14-book tale about a farm boy turned chosen one who has to stop the super-devil from destroying reality itself — except it’s so much more, and it approaches Tolkien-levels of epic. Robert Jordan’s first book was published in 1990, and the final installment, “A Memory of Light,” was just released this January. A series spanning 23 years is certainly a feat to be proud of, but Jordan didn’t even live to see its completion. Unfortunately, he died of amyloidosis in 2007, leaving more than 20 percent of the story unfinished. Fortunately for fans, who were worried about being left hanging, Brandon Sanderson picked up the reins and finished the last three books. And what a job he did. “A Memory of Light,” is the perfect representation of everything that is good and bad about “The Wheel of Time,” and is a testament to Jordan and Sanderson as authors. It’s also the final point of persuasion to the argument of whether the series is worth a read. The answer is yes. It’s one of the most fleshed-out worlds ever created, with cultures as multifaceted and numerous as in real life. The stakes are as big as they get and the time spent with the characters makes almost all of them endearing, in one way or another. The magic system is awesome (in the biblical sense) and fairly balanced at the same time. But above all the rest, it’s a true adventure, rife with the inconvenience of reality; that’s part of what makes it so long. Plus, a good, finished fantasy series is hard to come by. That’s what makes “The Wheel of Time” so worthwhile. Many stories will start off strong only to taper off after a few books

as the author loses focus, and with 14 books it’s a wonder the story ended on such a perfect note. That isn’t to say the series doesn’t have its problems with focus, because entire books made me question whether Jordan had “gone too deep.” Books eight through 10 were almost unbearable because pretty much nothing happened. But here’s the thing: With the help of Sanderson, the last three books reined the story in and finished strong in as perfect of a way as anyone could imagine, considering the circumstances. Of course, most of what Sanderson did was extrapolated from partial manuscripts and notes written by Jordan himself, but the fresh perspective allowed the story to get back on the rails it had long since gone off of. “The Gathering Storm” and “The Towers of Midnight” (books 12 and 13, the first two Sanderson wrote) were great assurances to fans that the series was in good hands. But with “A Memory of Light,” he reminded everyone why “The Wheel of Time” was worth a two decade investment. After 13 books of buildup, the Last Battle that was prophesized since the beginning had to be massive, and it was. The whole 900-plus page book was the battle, and everyone came out to play. But despite everything there was to keep track of, Jordan and Sanderson left almost no loose ends. Every character had a resolution, somehow, and no one’s future was wholly uncertain. Fans don’t really have to wonder what’s going to happen to everyone because it’s all laid out. And some may prefer the mystery, but considering the creator is dead, certainty is a positive. “The Wheel of Time” won’t be for everyone, but it is a world worth exploring, and there are so many places to go. But best of all, it’s actually done, which means no years of waiting to find out what happens next. And hey, George R. R. Martin can’t promise you that. So you might as well pick up “The Wheel of Time” while you wait for the next “A Song of Ice and Fire” book (a.k.a “Game of Thrones,” for the HBO-only crowd).
