Career change for dean BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA The Daily Wildcat

In an effort to help realize the UA’s academic strategic plan, the dean of the UA College of Medicine — Tucson was recently appointed to two new positions. Dr. Steve Goldschmid will start his new appointments as associate vice president for clinical affairs at the Arizona Health Sciences Center and vice president of physician services for the University of Arizona Health Network on March 3. Dr. Joe G.N. “Skip” Garcia, UA senior vice president for health sciences, will serve as interim dean of the UA College of Medicine — Tucson. In his new positions, Goldschmid will focus on communication in clinical delivery, efficiency

and productivity at the UA Colleges of Medicine in Tucson and Phoenix, Garcia said. Goldschmid will also improve how the Health Sciences Center interacts with individuals in the community and seek opportunities to set up new clinics, Garcia added. “The success of the Arizona Health Sciences Center is really dependent on the success of the health network,” Garcia said. He said if the health network delivers better care, it will enhance the academic mission of the university. Never Settle, the UA’s strategic academic plan, focuses on partnership and engagement in the community, as well as on providing students with hands-on learning opportunities. “I think in the next six months, Dr. Goldschmid

will have a significant impact on the care delivery that we’re talking about,” Garcia said. “I think all of these will make us very much stronger and more accomplished also on a very steep trajectory to achieving some academic success.” The new positions were created as a response to leadership needs at the UA’s clinical programs, according to George Humphrey, assistant vice president of AHSC’s office of public affairs. Having these leadership positions is common at academic health centers in the U.S., Humphrey added. “We’re very pleased that Dr. Goldschmid has accepted this position, for he has great strength in clinical programs and clinical practice operations,” Humphrey said in an email statement. “He has

Energy drinks aren’t the only way to stay up and study. Tyler Johansen, the president of Brainiac Supplements and a UA alumnus, said he first got the idea for creating a healthy supplement to improve cognitive function when he struggled to focus during his four years here. “When I was here at the UA, I started buying supplements one by one, just the individual ingredient, and tried to figure out what would help me concentrate in class,” Johansen said. Johansen partnered with Mahdi Pessarakli, the medical and marketing director of Brainiac Supplements, to refine a formula packed with vitamins and herbs to help improve memory, concentration and focus. The two began marketing their product, which they named Study Buddy, to college campuses across Arizona and California. “Every major university between Tucson and Los Angeles carries the product,” Johansen said. “Every Circle K in Arizona and Nevada carries the product, and we sell a bunch online nationwide.” Since the product’s launch four years ago, the number of consumers using it has rapidly increased. Pessarakli said he would conservatively estimate that about 1,000 students on each campus that sells Study Buddy actively use it. Johansen and Pessarakli said they are hoping to increase Study Buddy’s reach by not only expanding to other colleges, but also by creating products similar to Study Buddy that target other age groups. “We’ve got a senior formula, a baby boomer geriatric formula coming out,” Johansen said. “We’ve got a kids version coming out. We’ve talked about an infant type of deal and a few other formulas, all-around cognitive function.” The product targeting children would be intended to optimize pediatric development, so children could learn appropriately and enhance overall classroom performance. A version of Study Buddy for mature adults would try to help optimize brain function. “The broader vision of the company is to become a development group




ARIZONA RESERVES watch the last few seconds of regulation of the Wildcats’ 69-66 double overtime loss to ASU at Wells Fargo Arena on Friday. Arizona has struggled offensively during its last four games and the bench scored no points against ASU.

BY JAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat


EMPE, Ariz. — The old saying goes, “Defense wins championships,” but in most sports, including basketball, the team that scores the most points wins. If No. 2 Arizona men’s basketball doesn’t fix its offensive woes, it’ll be

in for a short NCAA tournament run. The Wildcats have had problems making free throws all year, and now they have to worry about scoring in the run of play. “Our offense is continuing to put more and more pressure on our defense,” head coach Sean Miller said. “You can only guard so well. We missed a ton of free throws, and, heck, we missed a ton of free throws all year. Eventually, it’s going to run its course, and you’re going to lose because we’re leaving too many points on the table.” The Wildcats only managed

66 points despite playing 10 extra minutes in their loss at ASU. Yes, the referees did not call technical fouls on ASU for throwing objects on the court, storming the court early, allowing their bench to run into the court early or hanging on the rim on the last score, but officiating has never been the Pac12’s strong suit. It’s also been established that rushing the court early is perfectly acceptable in the Conference of Champions. The reason Arizona lost is

While people may be hesitant to admit how many sexual partners they’ve had, many UA students said they don’t think it matters. There may, however, be some social assumptions tied to the question of how many partners a person has had. Jill Verbridge, a nurse practitioner at Campus Health Service, said the questionnaires people fill out when getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases ask how many sexual partners the person has had because having more partners can lead to a higher risk of having an infection. The answer to that question doesn’t change the testing process or the prevention education people receive when they get tested. It’s more important that people are smart about using protection when having sex, regardless of the number of partners they choose to have sex with,

Verbridge said. “It only takes one,” Verbridge said. “It matters if people are protecting themselves or not.” Being familiar with a partner and their sexual history also helps reduce the risk of getting STDs, she added. According to Campus Health Service, in 2013, 70 percent of UA students reported being sexually active that school year, and 4 percent of students reported having six or more partners in a year. Nathan Maynard, a pre-business freshman, said having had a lot of sexual partners isn’t a huge deal and shouldn’t matter because it’s a personal choice. There is, however, a double standard in how society views what’s OK regarding how many sexual partners a woman has compared to how many a man has, Maynard added. “[Society wants] women to be … virgins until they’re married,” Maynard said, “but they want men to be out there all the time getting it

Learning English tricky for foreign students BY LAUREN SHORES

Arizona Sonora News Service

There’s no way around it: English is hard to learn. It’s really, really tough. It’s often illogical non-phonetic spelling patterns, the tendency to use conjunctions and the fact that words like “hard” and “tough” can have the same meaning in the above context, but not in others, make it difficult for non-native speakers to even understand the first sentence of this article. For example, though Gina Martinez is nearly fluent in English, she does admit that she struggles a little with the prepositions. “When people say things like ‘on the bus,’ it’s still confusing to me,” said Martinez, a psychology student from Bogotá, Colombia. The UA now has nearly 3,500 international students enrolled from about 140 countries. Like American students, degree-seeking international students are required to take two 100-level English courses, normally

English 107 and English 108 — the equivalent of English 101 and 102, but for non-native speakers. Two-thirds of the international students admitted in the spring 2014 semester were eligible to sign up for English 107. However, the other third placed into English 107A, a class created to help students who have a shakier grasp on the English language. This semester is first in two years to have more than 16 percent of first-semester international students enroll in 107A. When so many students need extra assistance to understand the language used in all of their university classes, it raises the question: Is the language barrier too much for these students? “The language barrier is always a concern,” said Nick Ferdinand, associate director of the Center for English as a Second Language. “However, the number of 107A students responds to the demand of international students. Ideally, we want 10 percent of the student population to be international, and we’re a little below 10 percent now.” Despite the roadblocks in learning our bear

of a language, international students continue to flock to America and UA, and we will continue to accept them with open arms. As it turns out, we need them. “There aren’t as many undergrads from the United States coming in because the natality rate has gone down,” Ferdinand said. “The United States education system has been expanding for decades, and has reached its capacity for domestic students. The number of students at the university will decline if we don’t recruit internationally.” It’s a mutually beneficial situation, then, for the UA and international students. The university gets higher enrollment and diversity, and international students get educated at one of the top 100 universities in the world. “U of A is in the 50th of the top 100 universities worldwide,” Ferdinand said. “Some of these students, especially from China, save for generations of families just so one child can go to college.” REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/THE DAILY WILDCAT



for really promoting brain health and mental health in general,” Pessarakli said. Johansen said that he would like students to take the supplement daily as a healthier alternative to other substances they might use to help them study. “There’s a lot of stuff that’s out there that’s really bad for you. … Look at diet drinks with things like Splenda, which is a known carcinogen, which causes cancer,” Johansen said. “We really want to be an alternative to those options and give a healthy way to improve memory, concentration and focus.” The company wants to continue marketing in a grassroots manner, Pessarakli said, and is planning to partner with sororities and fraternities to boost advertising for its product. Greek Life is great for the company’s marketing strategy, Johansen said, because Greek Life accounts for approximately 10 percent of UA’s population and is an organization that requires members to maintain a minimum GPA to stay active on campus. “There’s a lot of stuff that goes on in Greek Life that trickles throughout the rest of the campus, so even if you’re not affiliated with Greek Life, you’re still going to know what’s going on,” Johansen said. Pessarakli said there are no negative side effects of Study Buddy, making it a healthy but still effective way to study. “At the end of the day, it’s all about improving health and wellbeing,” Johansen said.

on. You can’t really have that and congratulate one and look down on the other.” Alexandra Brooks, a mechanical engineering freshman, said people should personally know when they’ve had too many partners based on whether they start building a bad reputation because of how many people they’ve had sex with. Women seem to be talked about more and seem to care more about their reputation, Brooks added. “A lot of the time, you hear about a woman being a slut,” Brooks said. “I occasionally hear a man be called a man whore. … The couple [of] guys that I’ve known who’ve been called that … just treat it kind of like a trophy.” This double standard creates cultural problems that go beyond how many partners people have had sex with, said Mari Galup, a Ph.D. student in gender and women’s studies who teaches Women and Western Culture. People often make assumptions that someone has a lot of sexual partners because of the way they dress or how they act, she added. These assumptions can also lead to value judgment or justifications as to why women are sexually abused or harassed, Galup said.

UA GRADUATES TYLER JOHANSEN and Dr. Mahdi Pessarakli created the nutritional supplement Study Buddy. Study Buddy is designed to help students focus and retain more information when studying.

unique experience with the teaching side of medicine, as well as the practice of medicine.” Goldschmid’s salary is about $550,000, most of which is funded by the UA Health Network. Goldschmid, who is certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, has been working with the UA College of Medicine — Tucson since 2000, when he was hired to establish a gastroenterology service/endoscopy lab. He became chairman of the UA Department of Medicine in 2006, and in 2008 he took a position as interim dean at the UA College of Medicine — Tucson. The University of Arizona Medical Center the and UA Health Network are working to recruit various positions along with a new dean for the college — including a new chair for the department of surgery, a chair for the department of medicine and a director for the UA Cancer Center. Recruiting surgeons and physicians to fill these positions takes several months, according to Katie Riley, director of media relations and corporate communications at UAHN and AHSC Office of Public Affairs. “Experienced surgeons and physicians of the high caliber we are seeking are uncommon,” Riley said in an email statement. “UA and

UAHN are absolutely committed to providing core transplant services. Strengthening these services in 2014 through strategic recruiting of experienced physicians and surgeons is a top priority.” Garcia said AHSC will have recruited three to four administrators within the next six months to fill some of the major positions that are currently open. Despite Goldschmid being in the middle of a pending lawsuit, the new appointment has nothing to do with the lawsuit against the College of Medicine — Tucson, according to Humphrey. Dr. Rainer Gruessner, former chairman of the department of surgery, filed a lawsuit in mid-November after being suspended with pay. Goldschmid called Gruessner via Skype in July 2013 asking him to step down from his position as chair of the department of surgery, citing a “record of poor performance,” according to court records. According to court documents, an evaluation committee within the College of Medicine asked Gruessner for input on the state of the college under Goldschmid’s leadership. Gruessner told the committee in April he was concerned about the dean’s leadership, and, according to the 191page lawsuit, he believes the dean found out about what he told the committee.

“Women are seen as losing their reputation when they sleep with a lot of people,” Galup said, “and men are seen as gaining a good reputation. They get built up by that.” Ellie Wood, a gender and women’s studies graduate student and a teaching assistant for the course Sex, Health and AIDS, said how much people actually care about their reputation depends on how they were brought up and how they were educated. “There are people who, very much so, were brought up with open-mindedness, as well as their education, and realize that someone’s sexual activity doesn’t define their morals,” Wood said. “They’re not going to give you trouble for having more than one sexual partner in your life.” The number of sexual partners people have shouldn’t matter as long as people are following and supporting their personal beliefs, said Mark Fleckenstein, a systems engineering sophomore. Being in love with a sexual partner is also an important factor, he added. “I think if you’re genuinely in love, I think that’s a good enough reason,” Fleckenstein said. “But I think it’s different for everyone.”

The lawsuit claims he was suspended without cause, and he is not seeking payment but instead would like to get his job back and restore his reputation. Goldschmid declined to comment on the pending lawsuit and on his new positions. Garcia also said Goldschmid’s administrative move is unrelated to the lawsuit, and the new positions were created to improve the College of Medicine’s future. Goldschmid was appointed to the positions because of his understanding of the college’s clinical mission. “We’ve been talking about this realignment in our leadership positions for quite some time,” Garcia said. “The Gruessner search was started in December. I think [Goldschmid] also understands that in his new leadership position, he’ll be able to influence how the resources for the College of Medicine get generated and maybe play a big role in generating additional resources for us to be able to grow the College of Medicine. So, I’d say there’s no link to any of the issues going on with the previous chairman of surgery.” COURTESY OF KATIE RILEY

Sex may sell, but ability matters BY Mackenzie Brown The Daily Wildcat


ith the XXII Olympic Winter Games in full swing, it’s a time for excitement and the hope that people will come together peacefully and show their passion for competitive sports. It is a time to celebrate astounding athletic talent regardless of race, nationality, religion or gender. This year, women’s ski jumping is included in the games for the first time. In the past, many sports have been reserved for men because of ridiculous worries about the uterus falling out or being damaged. It seems like we’ve finally made progress toward gender equality in sports. Unfortunately, that’s jumping ahead of where we really are. Female athletes should not be subject to societal norms that pressure them to choose between being feminine and being athletic, nor should they be punished if they do or don’t fit stereotypes. For female Olympians, their talent alone is not sufficient for viewers and sponsors. In order to get endorsements to continue training, they still need sex to sell. But what about ability? They’re some of the greatest athletes of our time, but not seen as such. Instead, they’re “sexy and athletic” women who just happen to have a gold medal or two. As the world watches competitions like women’s figure skating, their eyes will not be on the talent displayed by the athletes but the amount of sex-appeal they ooze in skin-tight, hyper-sexualized uniforms designed to play up all their best assets. Rather than enjoying the moment at hand, these women must worry about not only their appearance, but also about their performance. Mikaela Shiffrin, an alpine ski racer, said in an interview with “The Today Show” that she spends at least 30 minutes putting on make-up and doing her hair, because for the few moments after she takes off her helmet, all cameras are on her. Shiffrin’s appearance in those photos or interviews can mean the difference between landing a sponsorship deal or missing it. If she were a man, there would be no question about sponsorships or her physical appearance. Female athletes blur the line between athleticism and femininity, but their talents should not be overshadowed by looks or socially demanded justification for how women compete or what they look like doing it. They’re subjected to the highly dichotomic and sexist system of being beautiful or “butch,” with athletic ability coming second. This limits women to a cycle in which they fully recognized for their athletic talents. Lolo Jones, an Olympic hurdler turned bobsledder, faced a scathing attack from a New York Times journalist who felt she gained too much air time for her looks, rather than her performance. However, if a woman is not sexual enough, she’s labeled “butch,” or her gender is even questioned and tested. Middle distance runner Caster Semenya’s gender was publicly scrutinized during 2012 Summer Olympics because of a gender test she took in 2009 when she did not fit the “sexy woman athlete” standard. Rather than a celebration of her massive victories and multiple new records, old rumors began circulating again. The sexism faced by female Olympians is an unfortunate mark on a competition that is supposed to celebrate talent and personal triumph. Such norms perpetuate femininity as one of the best qualities a woman can have, and not being feminine is an obvious deviation from what society considers normal. Title IX, passed by Congress in 1972, finally initiated the slow and painful change of such binary norms. While women are now allowed to compete, they’re still measured against the achievements of their male counterparts, and female-dominated sports never receive the same hype or publicity that male dominated sports are entitled to. It’s not that female athletes are not worthy of the same reverence, our sexist norms just perpetuate such discrimination. The Olympics are supposed to be a celebration of athletic talent and ability, not a double-edged sword to hurt, shame or exploit its female participants. There needs to be less focus on what women look like and more on what they do and who they are: Inspirational role models and true competitors in the games.

Kindling e-book ownership BY David W. Mariotte The Daily Wildcat


y Flappy Bird high score is 70. I’ve spent excessive amounts of time on the app for a fairly meager payoff, but hey, at least I didn’t try to spend excessive amounts of money for the questionable pleasure of playing it. I managed to jump on the birdwagon two days before Flappy Bird was removed from the App Store and Google Play. eBay posts tell me I could make $99,900 for a single iPhone 5S with Flappy Bird on it — I just can’t sell one on eBay without breaking both its and Apple’s terms of use. So if I want to make bank by selling devices that haven’t been reset, I guess I’ll have to sell my iPad out of my trenchcoat in an alley somewhere. Really, I love Flappy Bird too much to sell it. But for a little while, I wasn’t sure I’d even have the option to play it. We were lucky the game didn’t disappear completely, even from devices it

was downloaded on, considering the lack of real ownership for digital products and the revocable leases we really obtain. What’s really being purchased on the App Store is the right to use something. These leases are restricted by the terms of service most of us agree to without reading. Basically, the license can be taken away if the company decides you’ve misused it. The most obvious illustration of this concept is, to me, the difference between a hard copy of a book and an e-book. With a hard copy of a book, if I want, I can take my three copies and lend one to my friend, donate one to the library and sell one to Bookman’s without having to restore them to factory settings — though if I was one of those people who writes in books, I’d do the courtesy of erasing my marks first. That’s my decision. I own the book and as long as I don’t break the law, mostly copyright law, I can do pretty much whatever I want with it. That isn’t possible with e-books. Breaking out a Kindle, Nook or iPad and trying to lend a book to a friend by letting them borrow your device or account breaks your terms of service. The same goes for

trying to resell, donate or leave it to an heir. Once you break those terms of service, Amazon or Barnes and Noble or Apple can come in and take your license away, making the book disappear from your device. That’s not to say that you actually have to violate the terms of service to lose your books. On July 17, 2009, Amazon pulled George Orwell’s books “1984” and “Animal Farm” off of Kindle devices, without warning, because of an issue with the copyright. After users expressed surprise, confusion and anger at losing their books, Amazon apologized and promised to be more upfront if it has to remove books again on such a large scale. Wired’s “Mr. Know-It-All,” Brendan I. Koerner, addressed his frustrations with Amazon’s ability to revoke the license in one of his columns. “If Jeff Bezos [founder and CEO of Amazon] showed up at your door and said he wanted to repossess your books, would you let him in?” Koerner wrote. “No, you’d unleash your hounds. And then hope that one of the dogs got ahold of his wallet.” Jokes aside, he has a very important point. It would be unreasonable to take away hard

copies like one can take away e-books. Part of what’s nice about having a physical book is being able to do what you want with it, and the same should apply to e-books. Resale is a way to extend a book’s life after printing stops and supports the used books market, generally small business owners, though also the occasional company like Bookman’s. Making resale a violation of terms of service is an underhanded shot at market domination and elimination of a viable, legal, minor competitor. It’s great to have my books, both physical and digital, and my Flappy Bird. I just wish I actually owned all of them. A push for true digital ownership and against harsh terms of service needs to happen if we want to keep our digital possessions as long as we keep our physical ones. For now though, if you want to play Flappy Bird, hit me up. I’ll let you borrow it — just don’t tell Apple.

Opinions columnists get back to basics with Q&A on hot-button issues Sochi’s opening ceremony: gorgeous or gaudy?

Eric Klump

Shelby Thomas

Mackenzie Brown

A constant flow of bad press showing piss-colored water, unfinished rooms and jammed doors has not made these games look good. After all that, a big, shiny ceremony should make everyone forget these road bumps … but what the hell happened to the rings?

I thought the opening ceremony was really exciting. I admit, though, that all the talk about the “Nightmare Bear” seemed melodramatic until I watched the highlights and realized how much the creepy critter lives up to its nickname … I feel like I need to go buy a night light.

For the amount of homophobia and anti-gay sentiment in Russia, I’d say its opening ceremony was pretty darn flamboyant. It seemed like a bad LSD trip.

Should “Singles Awareness Day” be a thing? EK: If Singles Awareness Day becomes a real holiday, I fully expect it to become just as commercialized as Valentine’s Day. So here’s to buying liquor, lotion and Ben and Jerry’s on clearance at Walgreens in the week following!

Is it permissible to change the race/gender/ sexuality of a character for film adaptations?

EK: JOUR 439. The lectures taught me a lot about moving oneself around a situation, to see it from multiple angles, some of which made me uncomfortable.

EK: No, not at all. Changing characters can potentially change the meaning of a piece, unless of course the only change made is to make the characters talking animals or robots. You can’t tell me that “The Lord of the Rings” wouldn’t have been improved if the hobbits were gerbils, the men were played by puppies and the orcs were played by hairless cats.

ST: ENGL 109H. The class itself wasn’t anything too unique, but my teacher assigned very demanding and timeconsuming coursework that forced me to look at art and literature in a way I never had before. This class whipped me into shape and made me love and despise writing at the same time.

ST: If we are being honest, Singles Awareness Day is already a thing. In fact, the seven days leading up to Valentine’s Day should be called “Singles Awareness Week.” Just look for me and all of the other single ladies blasting Beyoncé and you will become very aware.

MB: I took HNRS 208H with Patrick Baliani, and it may have been the greatest class of my life. Professor Baliani challenged me to write and think on a much higher level than was ever expected of me before, and it was a challenge I thoroughly enjoyed.

MB: Every day is Singles Awareness Day. Trust me, if you’re single, you’re totally aware of it, and when you’re not obsessing about it privately, you’re rehashing the same old “why am I single” debate with your best friend. So no, singles day should absolutely not be a thing: Unfortunately, it already is.

Which class that you’ve taken at the UA had the most impact on you?

ST: Why not? I think that the more creative film makers are, the more audiences are challenged as consumers. I love to see new and fresh takes on “classic” or “timeless” characters. It keeps the whole experience fresh and interesting. MB: I believe that the director should stay true to the author’s original intent. Changing the race, gender, or sexuality of a movie character detracts from the original nature of the plot and can spark a lot of backlash from hardcore fans. Why mess around with something that was already good to begin with?

Two IDs

A UA student was cited for underage drinking in Coronado Residence Hall on Feb. 7 at 1:07 a.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a call reporting an intoxicated man trying to gain access to rooms in Coronado. The student was standing at the front desk, and the officers saw that he had red, watery eyes. The student was looking for his ID but could not find it. The resident assistant handed the student’s wallet to the officer, who found two IDs inside — one from New York and one from California. The ID from New York was a fake and the one from California was the student’s actual ID. When asked, the student said that he had paid $150 for the fake ID but did not say where he purchased it. The student also said he had been drinking at an off campus house party. The student was then cited by the officer.




One way to get a ride home

A UA student was diverted for underage drinking on Feb. 7 at 2:41 a.m. A UAPD officer was driving down Sixth Street, approaching Park Avenue, when he noticed a woman standing in the street leaning against a construction fence. The officer stopped and turned on his rear lights to alert her that he was approaching. As the officer approached the woman, he saw her step away from the fence and almost stumble into the construction area. The officer noticed her swaying and a strong smell of alcohol. The woman identified herself and said she was a student. When asked if she had been drinking, she told the officer no. When asked a second time, she admitted to drinking a “small” amount of vodka at an on campus party. The woman consented to a breath test and the officer confirmed that she had alcohol in her system. After the officer verified that she did not have any weapons, he drove her to her home. The student was then diverted to the Dean of Students Office. |

Hall call

A UA student was taken to the University Arizona Medical Center and cited for underage drinking Saturday. At 3:01 a.m. a UAPD officer responded to a call from Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall about an extremely intoxicated man. Upon arrival the officer found the student was sitting on his floor, with watery, glassy eyes and wet pants. When asked if he had consumed too much alcohol the student replied that he had. The resident assistant said he had called for a medical evaluation after finding the student stumbling in the hallway. The student was transported to UAMC and cited for minor in bodily possession of alcohol later that day.

UA dominates tourney



JUNIOR KELLIE FOX crosses home after a two-run home run against Tennessee State during the 17th annual Hillenbrand Invitational at Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Arizona beat the Tigers 10-1 in five innings in front of 2,471 fans. Fox leads the Wildcats with 18 RBIs and five home runs.


The Daily Wildcat



ASU’s 69-66 upset of No. 2 Arizona men’s basketball was the Sun Devils’ first win over a top-five team in 16 years. ASU beat No. 4 Stanford 90-87 in 1998. The Sun Devils’ last win over a top-five UA squad was in 1992.

SCORE CENTER BADGERS TAME WOLVERINES No. 21 Wisconsin 75 No. 15 Michigan 62

For Arizona softball head coach Mike Candrea every weekend is a test. After six games this weekend at the 17th annual Hillenbrand Invitational, Candrea said Arizona passed with flying colors. The No. 24 Wildcats (9-0) won all six games and beat their four opponents by a combined score of 39-1. “We need to keep embracing the process,” Candrea said. “One weekend doesn’t make a season.” While a weekend may not make a season, it could be a launch pad. During the Hillenbrand Invitational, the Wildcats earned two victories over No. 4 Alabama (8-2). Arizona defeated the Crimson Tide 3-0 on Saturday night and 8-0 on Sunday. “We’re not backing down,” shortstop Kellie Fox said about the team’s two wins over Alabama. “We know we’re a great team, and now we have something to prove it and build off it.” In Saturday’s victory Arizona received a 5.0 inning, three-hit and nine strikeout performance in the

circle from senior Estela Piñon, a step back after a loss — or in the despite it being the Wildcats’ lowest- Wildcats’ case, a win. “Any time you can beat a quality scoring game so far this season. “She set the tone for the next team there’s a carryover, but my day and fired us up and did a really biggest concern would be how would amazing job,” said senior pitcher we perform on [Sunday],” Candrea said. “[Sunday] was the statement.

and final game of the invitational, Fox now leads the team with 18 RBIs and five home runs. She is also is hitting an even .500 on the season. As the best run producer for the Wildcats so far, Fox looks set as the number-three hitter in Arizona’s lineup. Other roles are still being defined, but Candrea said he likes where this team is headed. Candrea said he tells every one on the team that no matter their spot in the lineup or on the bench, there still is a role and job for them. He was pleased with how even the non-starters came in and performed, but also kept the energy alive in the dugout. As for the pitchers, Arizona has five on roster who Candrea is getting more comfortable with throwing in different situations. “We have five kids we can use at any time,” Candrea said. “That’s very valuable to us because we can mix and match and it’s never been that we had five pitchers of that quality, so it’s a good problem to have.”

Sunday afternoon was pleasant for Arizona baseball as it won the first series of the season for the 20th consecutive time. Arizona (2-1) was able to bounce back from a loss on Saturday to defeat Kent State 7-1 on Sunday. Sophomore Cody Hamlin (1-0) made his Wildcat debut and went seven innings, allowing one run on four hits with three strikeouts on a total of 74 pitches. He transferred from Western Nevada College. “He’s new to the program, and he’s obviously made a very strong impression,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “We probably were a little too quick in terms of getting him out [before the eighth inning].” Hamlin’s first two strikeouts of the season came during the first inning. “I felt that my first start went well,” Hamlin said. “I pounded the zone and got a lot of strikes, and I let the defense do their work and just went from there. I need to keep doing what I did today and hopefully keep starting.” Hamlin’s only issue was getting ahead of hitters, but he held the Golden Flashes well enough to win the game. Arizona looked completely different on defense on Sunday after losing 14-5 on Saturday, but it didn’t make a lot of changes. The field starters did not change, except for the catcher. Instead of junior Riley Moore, who caught on Friday and Saturday, junior Jordan Berger was the backstop. “[Riley] is not doing a very good job defensively,” Lopez said. “The shortstop position, the centerfield position and the catching position are positions where we really need a solid defensive performance.” Lopez said he was satisfied with Berger’s defensive work, and offensively, Berger recorded a hit and had two runs batted in. Lopez said that Berger will stay

in the starting catching position for the upcoming game on Tuesday. Offensively, Arizona was looking aggressive with its baserunning and finished with a total of 13 hits for the game. Concluding his first three-game college series, freshman Bobby Dalbec led Arizona with three hits on Sunday. Dalbec didn’t record hits on Friday and Saturday, but he said he remained patient and kept doing what he said he thought he needed to do. “I was hitting the ball hard on Friday and Saturday, but I was hitting it right at people,” Dalbec said. “I didn’t really want to change my approach. I just wanted to stick with it.”

Dalbec played shortstop before starting his college career and was on the starting lineup as the first baseman during this weekend’s series. “It’s a lot harder than everyone thinks,” Dalbec said. “It’s a lot of footwork stuff that I have to get used to, so I’m still getting used to it but I’ll be good with the next couple days.” The Wildcats opened the season with a 13-1 victory over Kent State. Arizona will practice today and host Utah Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday.

In the final weekend Arizona hockey had to show why it should be selected for the 2014 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships, it was swept and outscored 11-1 at Minot State. Regardless, UA head coach Sean Hogan said he believes the Wildcats will get their first invitation to the tournament since the 2005-06 season. “We’ll slip one or two spots,” Hogan said, “but we still fully expect to be in the National Tournament and [are] starting to prepare for that.” The 20-team bracket for the tournament will be unveiled tonight at 6 p.m. The selection show will be streamed live via www. The No. 14 Wildcats (17-19-0, 8-80 WCHL) lost 3-0 to the defending ACHA Division I champion, No. 10 Beavers (21-6-4) on Friday. Arizona’s offense came up empty on four power play opportunities while Steven Sisler kept his team in the game, saving 42 of 45 shots. The following night, a grease fire erupted in the Wildcats’ net as the Beavers won 8-1. “Honestly, it’s a culmination of the same problem we’ve had every year with our schedule,” Hogan said. “This week we only had one practice. It showed.” Garrett Patrick got the nod in net Saturday, but was pulled in the first period for Sisler after letting Minot get a 3-1 lead. The move backfired as Sisler immediately allowed two

because it couldn’t score enough and is a much different team since it beat 91-68 ASU last month. Arizona is 2-2 since sophomore Brandon Ashley suffered a season-ending injury at California. ASU fans chanted “Brandon Ashley,” surely to taunt Arizona, but they had a point. The Wildcats are not the same without Ashley. His stats, 11.5 points per game and 5.8 rebounds a game, weren’t overly spectacular, but the UA lost one of its greatest strengths. With Ashley in the frontcourt and sophomore center Kaleb Tarczewski, the Wildcats could switch from a big team to a small one on the fly. Without Ashley, Arizona is struggling to find itself. Does it want to go big with another forward like junior forward Matt Korcheck taking Ashley’s minutes, or small with freshman guard Elliott Pitts playing in his stead? Or neither? Even with its highly touted recruiting classes each year, the bench scored no points at ASU. The Wildcats are not filling the void.

reserves in. Freshman forward LaBrittney Jones and junior guard Candice Warthen had 11 and nine points for Arizona, respectively. Bonnie Samuelson finished with 17 points for Stanford. In the game at Cal on Friday night, the Golden Bears and the Wildcats went on 7-0 and 10-0 runs to start the game. But after the score was tied at 10 with 13:28 remaining the first half, Brittany Boyd and Reshanda Gray took over for Cal. The two finished with seven and 16 points for the game, respectively. The duo would combine to score 17

In Ashley’s absence, the offense has struggled mightily. Arizona’s first true pass-first point guard in years, junior T.J. McConnell, is shooting way more than he did when they were winning 20-something games in a row. As a result, the UA’s halfcourt offense has suffered. Against Cal, Oregon, Oregon State and ASU, the Wildcats shot 32.3, 40, 50 and 35.9 percent, respectively. Arizona’s other starter at guard, junior Nick Johnson, has also struggled in the post-Ashley era. Johnson has shot 1-for-14, 5-for-16, 4-for-10 and 5-for-20 from the field in the last four games. The once-mighty Wildcats now go minutes without scoring field goals. The Wildcats can probably limp through the rest of Pac-12 season, but not being able to score will become a huge problem in about a month. Arizona lost on the road, barely, to a couple average teams that are so unaccustomed to success, their fans don’t know when to rush the court. However, probably by its second game of the NCAA tournament (assuming the Wildcats can hold onto a No. 1 or No. 2 seed), the UA will face a team that can exploit its offensive offense. — Follow James Kelley @jameskelley520

points in the half to help lead the Bears to a 29-14 run and a 39-24 halftime lead. The Bears ran a 2-2-1 full court zone defense, which led to nine first-half turnovers for Arizona. Cal would score 12 points off of Arizona turnovers. Cal opened up the second half with a 15-8 run and took a 54-32 lead with 14:41 remaining. Seconds later, Boyd went out with an ankle injury, and four minutes after that, Gray got into foul trouble and left the game. Arizona could not take advantage of the two losses, however. Freshman forward Breanna

Workman, sophomore guard Keyahndra Cannon and senior forward Erica Barnes each chipped in 10 points for Arizona. Barnes had a career high with four blocks as well. The Wildcats will host Utah Friday night. “We just got to keep working hard and go back to the drawing board,” Butts said, “as we got an opportunity at home.”

Is it o.k. to skip the last week of pills in a birth control pill pack?

A. Yes. Only the first 21 days of pills in a pack work to prevent pregnancy. If you use a 28-day pack, the last seven pills are optional and are included just to keep you “in the habit” of taking a pill each day. Most brands of pills are formulated so that the last seven pills don’t contain active


ingredients, although they may include a low dose of iron. Some newer formulations have a bit of estrogen in the last few pills, to reduce side effects and to help with the adjustment to the next full pack. Key point: the last seven days of pills do not affect pregnancy prevention-you can take them or trash them.

What’s the best way to get rid of hickies?

A. Time. Hope. Patience. A hickey is a bruise caused by someone sucking or nibbling on the skin. Skin discoloration occurs as a result of broken blood vessels and blood leaking into the tissues just below the skin. Bruises can appear if skin is injured by an overzealous romantic partner. Women are more prone to bruising than men. During the healing phase, which may take 2 weeks or more, hickies create a rainbow of colors, including blue, purple, red, and greenish-yellow. Here are a few tips that will help any bruise to the skin: Protect the area from further “trauma.” Apply ice or cold packs immediately to reduce

pain and swelling. Repeat the cold treatment several times a day for 10 to 20 minutes each session. For the first 48 hours after getting the hickey, avoid activities that may increase swelling, such as hot showers, hot tubs, hot packs, or alcoholic beverages. Gently massage the hickey to increase blood flow and relieve pain. Don’t rub the area if it hurts too much. Of course, you can use makeup to help disguise the hickey and tone down the colors until your body heals itself.

Forgotten Presidential Blunders BY kevin reagan The Daily Wildcat

With their names and faces in libraries, schools and even the change in our pockets, the influence of the U.S. presidents on history is inescapable. The whole month of February is filled with commemorations of the birth of former presidents, and a separate day has been designated to celebrate all the leaders who have served this country. All this pomp may be patriotic, but presidents are still human beings like everyone else. They’re bound to be guilty and have a few flaws. Words like associated with presidential scandal like “Watergate” and “Lewinsky” have tarnished the executive branch. In the book “Failures of the Presidents,” historians Thomas J. Craughwell and M. William Phelps identify some of the lesser-known mistakes made in the Oval Office. Here are five that might make you rethink the justification for celebrating Presidents’ Day:

Thomas jefferson

Warner Bros.

President Jimmy Carter’s decision to grant asylum to exiled Iranian shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi may have been a diplomatic disaster, but it made for some wonderful movie material. Best Motion Picture Winner 2013 “Argo” was based on the resulting conflict.

1) Thomas Jefferson’s Embargo Act of 1807

As Napoleon Bonaparte waged war throughout Europe in the early 1800s, Great Britain grew more hostile toward the revolutionized French nation. As tensions mounted between the two countries, President Thomas Jefferson attempted to keep the U.S. neutral. When naval ports in London and Paris began using American merchant ships as pawns in their game, Jefferson thought of a scheme to disassociate the country from the conflict. The Embargo Act prevented any American vessels from traveling to Europe to conduct trade with the two feuding nations. In the 15 months that it was instated, the act devastated the American economy, but aroused very little attention from across the Atlantic. By the end of Jefferson’s presidency, America’s exports had declined 80 percent.

3) Grover Cleveland’s Pullman Strike Scandal

After being victimized by severe layoffs and wage cuts, the employees of Pullman Palace Car Company united in a violent revolt of protest through the streets of Chicago. This local strike inspired the first-ever nationwide protest in America. President Grover Cleveland was never a fan of government interfering in the matters of business, but as reports of violence came in from all over the country, the president had the federal courts deem the act of striking illegal. This resulted in further hostility from the laborers, who responded with greater acts of destruction. On May 27, 1895, the Supreme Court justified the arrest of Eugene Debs, the leader of the Pullman Strike, upholding the government practice of using injunctions to break strikes in Debs v. U.S.

franklin pierce

jimmy carter

5) Jimmy Carter’s Iranian Crisis

2) Franklin Pierce’s Repealing the Missouri Compromise

President Franklin Pierce has the distinction of being the only elected president to be denied renomination by his own party. In trying to annex the island of Cuba, Pierce made a deal with a group of Southern senators to repeal the Missouri Compromise of 1850, which prevented the practice of slavery in some northern states. The newly conquered territories of Kansas and Nebraska were now able to choose if they wanted a free or slave state. Pierce’s political dealing reignited hatred between the North and South and served as a catalyst for the conflicts that would eventually turn into the Civil War.

President Herbert Hoover never seemed to have the favor of the American public. His unwillingness to help 20,000 veterans in 1932 didn’t help his reputation. When Congress passed the Adjusted Compensation Act in 1924, it granted the gift of $500 to each veteran of World War I, though a loophole prevented the recipients from getting their reward until 1945. A massive group of starving, unemployed veterans descended upon Washington, demanding their bonus money. Hoover responded by barricading himself in the White House and ordering the militaristic intervention of troops to remove the veterans from the city. The president spent the rest of his life convinced that the group, nicknamed the Bonus Army, consisted of mostly communists and ex-convicts looking to score some free cash.

4) Herbert Hoover’s Bonus Army Debacle

When the cancer-stricken shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, asked for President Jimmy Carter’s permission to enter the United States in 1979, Carter succumbed to his Southernbred hospitality and granted him access. An angry mob of young Islamic revolutionaries responded to by overthrowing the U.S. Embassy in Iran, as they saw the president’s decision as a betrayal to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. The rebels took a group of Americans hostage for next 444 days, while Carter ordered a series of failed rescued missions. His inability to appease both sides of the Iranian public cost him his reelection, but at least provided worthy script material for the 2012 Ben Affleck film “Argo.”

With his name forever synonymously attached to the Depression-era shanty towns nicknamed “Hoovervilles,”

Cate Blanchett is up for Best Actress for playing the lead role in the Oscar-nominated Woody Allen Film “Blue Jasmine”.

The Academy is no stranger to controversy. Last year, “Zero Dark Thirty” was nominated in multiple categories, but was shut out of the major ones amid fierce political backlash pertaining to its depiction of torture. In 2003, the Academy awarded Best Director to convicted child-rapist Roman Polanski, as well as Best Picture to the film he directed, “The Pianist.” Polanski’s victory might suggest that Allen, who has never been charged with, much less convicted of, sexual abuse and his counterparts will get a fair shake, but the Academy is hardly predictable in its voting. The expansion of social media will

make any potential backlash that much louder. The field of nominees is generally strong across the board and it won’t be a travesty if “Blue Jasmine” doesn’t earn an Oscar. For all the Oscar talk, award shows are hardly the important part of this story. There is a family fractured and broken. There will likely never be any resolution. And every time Allen makes a new film or does anything notable, it can be assumed that this story will re-surface. — Follow Taylor Armosino @ Tarmosinow
