SAE ends pledging to Tucson stem hazing problems honors
BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat
A fraternity is looking to make hazing in its brotherhood a thing of the past by eliminating the pledge process. After continued problems in its chapters nationwide, the national organization for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity announced that it eliminated pledging starting this past Sunday. New members, formerly referred to as “pledges,” will now be admitted immediately and hold the same rank as senior members of the fraternity upon accepting a bid. The new program, called “The True Gentleman Experience,” is meant to return the fraternity to its original values, established in 1856. The program charter points out that pledging is a 20th century development and one that creates “second-class citizenship” for pledges. In a news release on its website, SAE cited instances of misconduct during pledging as part of the reason behind the change. “We have experienced a number of incidents and deaths, events with consequences that have never been consistent with our membership experience,” the organization said. “Furthermore, we have endured a painful number of chapter closings

Though the UA could find no evidence supporting this claim, sanctions were imposed on the chapter in January. No members of the UA chapter of SAE could be reached for comment. Some people are unsure that this change in policies will eliminate hazing. Sgt. Filbert Barrera, public information officer
The Tucson city council voted last week to officially celebrate March 31 as César Chávez Day. After years of efforts, the Arizona César E. Chávez Holiday Coalition succeeded in earning recognition of the holiday from the city of Tucson. The group also received support from the UA and the Tucson community. “[The Department of Mexican American Studies] joined enthusiastically with those calling for a holiday to honor César E. Chávez in the City of Tucson,” Richard Ruiz, head of the MAS department, said in a letter to the office of the Mayor & Council and the City Manager. Ruiz said he also believes that the implementation of this holiday is long overdue, as other cities and counties have already declared a holiday in honor of Chávez. The day is officially celebrated by the states of California, Colorado and Texas.

The complete definition can be found on the UA policies website, but hazing is generally defined as actions taken or situations created to emotionally or physically harm individuals in order for those individuals to gain membership to an organization. According to data compiled by Bloomberg.com, there have been at least 10 hazing or alcohol and drug-related deaths at SAE events

“César Chávez was a man who made a difference for everyone in this country and beyond,” said Socorro Carrizosa, the program director of Chicano/Hispano Student Affairs. “I don’t think people understand the influence and impact he had in our lives.” Chávez is best-known for working with migrant farmers and trying to better the situation of day laborers, Carrizosa said. He added that people often forget that those day laborers are the people that put food on our tables every day. “He brought a lot of attention to the rights of farm workers, and did it in a very peaceful, non-violent way,” said Regina Romero, Ward 1 council member for the City of Tucson and co-founder of the Arizona César E. Chávez Holiday Coalition. “He did amazing things for millions of people in this country, it should be recognized and is a part of our history.” Chávez has a real connection to Arizona, the city of Tucson and UA, according to Romero. Chávez was born near Yuma, Ariz., in 1927 and died in San Luis, Ariz., in 1993. His mother grew up in Tucson and worked as a maid for a former UA President.

Because of what the UA did to honor Chávez, generations of students who may be unfamiliar with him and unaware of his contributions to society will honor him by walking through the doors of the building, Ruiz said. According to Romero, honoring Chávez with a holiday was one of her main goals when she was elected six years ago, but the timing wasn’t right. “We were facing an economic crisis, [César E. Chávez Day] was always talked about but kind of put off,” Romero said. “There were other economic situations. … We just couldn’t advance this idea, up until today, up until this year.” This holiday is not only to honor the legacy of Chávez, but also to educate our youth about him and his impact, Romero said. “The reason we want to have a holiday is to remind people about Chávez’s legacy,” Romero said. “Going to the schools and teaching the youth about Chávez is an important part of continuing his legacy.” — Follow Adriana Espinosa @adri_eee

IT’S A GREAT BIG UNIVERSE OUT THERE.
SPECIAL SPRING BREAK EDITION! Let’s face it, not everyone will be partying in Cabo or Lake Havasu this spring break. Each year, more students are exploring alternative options that give them a chance to give back to a community in need or offer a chance to build their resume. Many more are dreaming of sleeping in and the comfort food that await them back home.
But if your spring break happens to include an exotic locale and partying, the Red Cup Q&A is here to help. Use these tips to get the most out of your spring break and make it one you can remember: 1) STAY IN YOUR SWEET SPOT – Savvy spring breakers know that the week is a marathon, not a sprint. Use a BAC calculator app to figure out how many drinks per hour you can have to stay in your “sweet spot” – generally .05 BAC or under. 2) GET CONSENT – It’s the Wildcat Way. Consent can’t be given if someone is incapacitated due to drugs or alcohol, and sex without consent is rape. Best bet? Always ask for consent, and make sure your partner is sober enough to say “yes” when they are feeling it... and “no” when they’re not. 3) PROTECT YOURSELF – Whether you plan to hook up or not, bring condoms just in case. Your goal is to bring back good memories, NOT a sexually transmitted infection (STI). While you’re at it, bring a hat and use sunscreen to avoid getting fried after long days in the sun. If you are driving to your spring break destination, hit the road well rested, buckle up, and don’t text and drive – it can wait. 4) BUDDY UP – Stick with friends you know and trust, especially when you are far from home/campus. Having a sober friend can help the group steer clear of sketchy situations; they’ll also have the skills and presence of mind to step up if someone needs help.

Locked-in tuition gets us out of jail BY MACKENZIE BROWN The Daily Wildcat
sk me or any other college student about our fears and you’ll see the look, the one that screams, “I’m in way over my head in debt, and on top of that, my tuition has increased every year I’ve been here.” It’s a look that comes with an understanding that a “full-ride” scholarship won’t cover all of your costs because the award is static, while tuition isn’t. While our pleas for more financial assistance and more transparency in university spending go unanswered, our goals are overshadowed by the possibility of rising tuition. According to a study conducted by The College Board in 2013, Arizona had the highest in-state tuition and fee increases at its public four-year institutions. Over the five-year span from 2008 to 2013, Arizona tuition increases clocked in at a whopping 70 percent, compared to the national average of 27 percent. In strictly monetary terms, that’s a $4,135 hike, which no student should be expected to shoulder. The answer to such a financial mess lies in an option the UA has yet to offer its incoming students: locked-in tuition. According to scholarships.com, locked-in tuition offers enticing benefits to students looking to save long-term on higher education. For starters, the amount of tuition you pay for your entire college career is literally “locked-in” to whatever rate the university offers when you begin attending. Big-name schools like the University of Kansas, George Washington University and Columbia College all offer plans that make it easy for students to know exactly what they’re going to be shelling out for an education. Even Northern Arizona University abides by a set tuition program known as PLEDGE, where freshmen are guaranteed the same tuition for all four years of school. As attractive as an education from the UA is, there’s no denying a better financial deal elsewhere could certainly make me reconsider my enrollment choice. If the UA adopted a similar plan, students could start saving earlier, better understand their financial situation before college and not be subject to the whiplash of tuition hikes year after year. There are already models in place we could follow. In Texas, there is an entire system dedicated to helping students save for either a two or four-year institution, known as the Texas Tuition Promise Fund. The fund allows families to purchase units of tuition credit at a fixed price before even deciding on which Texas school they want to attend. Think of the units like CatCash. There’s a fixed amount you put on your CatCard at the beginning of the semester, and then you can decide where and how you’re going to spend your money. In this instance, you would be deciding which UA classes you want to take. While Texas allows its students to apply credit to any of its institutions, the UA could adopt a very similar plan and still remain autonomous from NAU and Arizona State University tuition policies. What’s such a steal about this system is the total transparency it represents: Market changes don’t affect the value of units used toward tuition, so what you save is what you can spend. Moreover, the system is highly attractive to a diverse group of people from all types of socioeconomic backgrounds. Even people who may not have been able to afford tuition all at once would have the option to put away small amounts of savings over long periods of time, making higher education attainable to more than just those people who can afford rising tuition. Under the weight of fees, debts and the ever-increasing price of tuition, the UA student body needs a way to compensate. Locked-in tuition or a similar system could be just the option we’re looking for. Without change, the UA will certainly lose out on enrollment to other schools — like NAU — that already offer more financial stability and guaranteed tuition plans. Unless the UA wants to continue to turn out dissatisfied, debt-ridden students who feel completely taken advantage of by volatile tuition hikes, there needs to be serious reconsideration of current policies and the implementation of a far more responsible tuition system.

We can’t stop: Prioritize passions over pressures BY BRITTANY RUDOLPH The Daily Wildcat
t is a truth universally acknowledged that an older generation must be in want of a good opinion about its children. The trope of grizzled old men and world-weary ladies rolling their eyes at young people has existed forever. Complaints have changed over time, but they’re still being made. Elvis’s pelvis is simply lewd. Rock ‘n’ roll is the devil. Computers are going to be the death of us all. For the love of God, can you please just stop texting? In the past, older generations seemed to worry about the causes the younger generations chose to take up. They watched their children, with halos of flowers upon their heads, protest war and the status quo. But now, they worry that we care about nothing at all. Hey, I wish I could try to save the world, but I simply don’t have time. Older people seem to believe apathy is our disease. We’d rather share via Instagram than involve ourselves with world issues. We’re not fully invested in what we do. Instead, we half-heartedly look out for ourselves. This “Millennial Generation” behavior has been discussed at length by talking heads and

YOUR VIEWS From “Club seeks to educate UA on Islam” (by Jordan Fowler, March 6) If you really want to experience wearing the hijab in Islamic culture, have men sexually harass them and women give them dirty looks when they take them off in public, then have police arrest the immodest girls. Or tell them they cannot take it off in public, period, whether they want to or not. That should give you an idea what it feels like to be immersed in Sharia-inspired Islamic culture. Freedom is beautiful, not hijab. —twostellas I think that no religion is better than the other, to be honest. They all have a very altruistic goal: to explain their existence in the world. Nothing is wrong with that. I don’t
believe that every Muslim is a terrorist, but I also believe that criticism of every religion should be permitted. What I do have a problem with is the self-victimization that Muslims seem to propagate throughout in social discourse, and the “special status” that they seem to be given. “I’ve been called a terrorist from people just walking by,” Zehri said. For one, a stupid remark from on individual does not mean you can stereotype every single person in the UA Campus as “Islamophobic.” More people really don’t care. I don’t care. If a terrorist act has occurred in the name of Allah, I don’t blame the religion. I blame the person. Religion was simply a catalyst to the person’s sociopathic behavior. In my perspective, religion seems to get the flak for a radical group of individual’s savage actions. In my observations, there is

every part of myself into every activity, I would lose my mind. College can be fun, but our work never ends, even when we get home. We enjoy our fancy phones, but they make it difficult for us to get a break. New emails keep coming constantly, and failing to respond could mean messing up a group project or being unprepared for class. Are we a very technology dependent generation? Yes. But we’re not usually taking selfies, as people might think. Instead, we’re frantically scanning our emails, checking D2L and trying to organize weekend plans. The right amount of apathy is healthy. Remaining just a bit apathetic means being able to balance a billion aspects of our lives without falling apart when one thing does not come together. Because of apathy, we are able prioritize our responsibilities, even if it means some things that are considered important to others get pushed to the bottom of our lists. We aren’t the generation of the selfie, we’re the generation of the selfmotivated.

If you have ever been to Gill, you would know that the section looked pretty full for it’s capacity. Also, I hope that the writer was at the game before passing judgement on the volume.

Police Beat BY Jordan Fowler The Daily Wildcat
‘Under the influence of handcuffs’
A UA student was cited and released for underage drinking near Maricopa Residence Hall on Feb. 28. A University of Arizona Police Department officer saw a student staggering on the sidewalk along James E. Rogers Way. The officer reached the student and saw that she had watery, bloodshot eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol. After identifying who she was, the student told the officer repeatedly that she was going to leave. He informed her she was not free to leave because he was conducting an investigation, so she requested to be read her rights. The officer recited her rights. When she continued to tell the officer she was going to leave, he told her he would put her in handcuffs if she tried to walk away. She took a step away so the officer placed her in handcuffs. The student asked several times why she was “under the influence of handcuffs.” After being read her rights again, she agreed to sign her citation and appear at her court date. The officer then removed the handcuffs and she declined the offer of a ride home.
The ‘B’ word
A UA student was arrested for domestic violence assault at Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall on March 2. Two UAPD officers were dispatched to La Paz after a fight occurred within one of the rooms. The first student had entered the room and his roommate told him to “take out the trash, bitch.” After finding out his roommate’s girlfriend was coming to stay for 10 days the first student said, “I hope that bitch isn’t staying with us for 10 days.” The first student said his roommate shoved him twice. He had visible scrapes on his elbows and chest. The officers spoke to the roommate and advised him that he would be under arrest for domestic violence assault. After reading him his rights, the officers transported the student to Pima County Jail.
Four UA students were involved in a physical altercation with non-UA affiliates at a party near their fraternity on March 2. One of the students reported that the fraternity was having a party and several uninvited guests showed up. The guests were asked to leave the fraternity, but as they were doing so two of the students said they saw one of the uninvited guests raise his arm to make the “heil Hitler” salute. Several members of the fraternity then confronted the guests about the salute. One fraternity member involved in the confrontation was punched in the face. Another fraternity member, who was at the house but had not been involved in the incident, ran outside to stop the fight and was punched in the face. By the time UAPD was dispatched, the fight involved as many as 30 people. No one in the fraternity could identify any of the uninvited guests. Three of the students involved did not want to pursue criminal charges, but the fourth was willing to take part in future criminal proceedings.

LEADERS OF THE PAC
Arizona basketball had a clean sweep of Pac-12 Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year, also capturing several secondary honors BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat
For the first time in program history, the Arizona men’s basketball team took home the three major postseason conference accolades in the same year. The No. 4 Wildcats (28-3, 153 Pac-12) amassed a total of 10 postseason Pac-12 honors in an announcement made by the Pac12 on Monday morning. Junior guard Nick Johnson was dubbed the conference Player of the Year, freshman forward Aaron Gordon was selected as Freshman of the Year and Sean Miller captured the John Wooden Coach of the Year honor. Johnson — who was additionally named first-team All-Pac-12 alongside Gordon — represented a quintessential cog in Arizona’s offense and defense this season and was a huge factor as the Wildcats cruised to their 13th conference championship. “Nick’s meaning to our team’s success, I can’t put a value on it, because it not only happens on the court, but it also happened off the court,” Miller said. “He’s had an outstanding season, not only inside the Pac-12, but if you think about what he did prior to the Pac-12 … he’s been there start to finish, so I’m happy he was rewarded.” Johnson is the eighth Wildcat to win Pac-12 Player of the Year and the second in five years, joining former Wildcat and current NBA star Derrick Williams, who accomplished the feat in 2011. “It’s a great honor, obviously,” Johnson said. “To be in that category is a great honor within itself, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.” Gordon averaged 7.8 rebounds per game and compiled eight double-doubles — both top among conference freshmen. He ranked second among Pac-12 freshmen in scoring, compiling an average of 12.3 points per game, and placed third in blocks with 0.8 per game. Gordon’s 241 boards this season rank fourth on the Arizona freshmen chart. However, Miller said that Gordon’s statistics aren’t the only reason he’s spoken of so fondly. “There may be some other freshmen in this country who statistically stand out more, “ Miller said, “but what Aaron means to our program … him being such an easy guy to coach and such a great teammate — to see him rewarded across the board for the things he was a part of equally well deserves.”

FRESHMAN FORWARD Aaron Gordon recovers a rebound during the first half of Arizona’s 79-66 win over Stanford in McKale Center on March 2. Gordon wasn’t named to the Pac-12’s first team All-Defense Team but was named the Pac-12’s Freshman of the Year.

Wildcat QB shows Hawaiian culture BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat
Anu Solomon has heard many different pronunciations of his name. From “ann-oo” to “A-nu,” the freshman Arizona quarterback has heard them all, and he has no problem correcting someone when they mispronounce his name. “It’s pronounced ahun-oo,” Solomon said to members of the media. “It’s Hawaiian and it’s actually my middle name.” Anu’s full name is Jarrett Anu Solomon, but he prefers his Hawaiian middle name, Anu. His heritage isn’t just in his name. Solomon has his family crest tattooed on his left shoulder. Surrounding the crest are tattoos representing Polynesian cultures. “My culture and heritage is something I take to the football field every day,” Solomon said. “In my culture, we’re football players, and it’s what we love to do.” On the Arizona football team, Solomon isn’t alone in his Polynesian heritage. Four other Wildcats share the same culture and similar tattoos: linebacker Keoni Bush-Loo and offensive linemen Faafoi Faitele, Lene Maiava and Freddie Tagaloa. “It’s great having them on the team,” Solomon said. “We’re real close on and off the field.” But despite being called many different names, the freshman quarterback still has yet to make name for himself on the field. And there’s one name he hasn’t heard

game.” So Solomon hit the books and grabbed a video game controller. When he wasn’t in practice, Solomon was in his dorm room studying the playbook. “His whole attitude has changed since the beginning of last season,” sophomore receiver Samajie Grant said. “When we’re just chilling in the dorm he would sometimes grab the playbook and quiz me,” Solomon’s dedication to understand the playbook didn’t stop with just studying and quizzing teammates. Solomon put the Wildcats’ offensive playbook in the football video game NCAA Football 14 by EA Sports and used that to practice his team’s playbook. “He’s really become a different quarterback,” Grant added. “Football has taken over.” With the departure of Arizona’s 2013 starting quarterback, B.J. Denker, an open competition has officially begun. Rodriguez won’t say if he has a favorite and won’t name a starting quarterback until the fall. And as is typical for the third-year Wildcats’ head coach, there won’t even be a depth chart until the season begins. But that doesn’t scare Solomon. “As a Hawaiian, we’re born to play football,” Solomon said. “Our fathers have disciplined us to be advanced in this sport.”

Laxcats win home opener
Arizona men’s lacrosse (5-1) defeated the New Hampshire Wildcats 13-4 in its home opener at Cherry Field on Sunday. Despite the windy conditions Arizona junior attacker Zach Johnson and senior attacker Willie Stanaback each scored a goal within the first two minutes of the game. The Laxcats earned three more goals in the first half of the game. Arizona pulled away from New Hampshire with six goals in the third quarter. They capped off the opposing Wildcats with two more in the final quarter. Arizona head coach Derek Pedrick said he was pleased with the team’s performance against the opposing Wildcats. “Offensively, defensively, in between the lines, they played much better this game,” Pedrick said. The Laxcats gave up 10 goals in their latest victory over Concordia. Stanaback and sophomore midfielder Ben Brehne each had four goals. Johnson also scored two goals during the game, and said he was satisfied with the team’s home-opening win. “Our defense played really good, and our goalie Tanner Knego played really well too,” Johnson said. Not only did the Laxcats win their home opener, but the team’s fundraiser was also a success. The Laxcats were able to raise $697 from ticket prices. They will donate the money to the American Cancer Society through Coaches vs. Cancer. Every team in the Southern Lacrosse Conference (SLC) is supporting Coaches vs.
Cancer by donating funds from a game to the foundation as well as wearing purple Coaches vs. Cancer t-shirts at those games. The Laxcats will go on a Utah road trip this week to play against No. 18 Westminster College, No. 5 Brigham Young University and Utah University. Arizona will be back at Cherry Field March 20 to play Simon Fraser at 7:00 p.m.
Women’s volleyball nearly sweeps Texas Invitational
The Arizona women’s club volleyball teams A and B won four of their five matches at the Texas Invitational tournament. Arizona’s B team beat No. 15 Texas’ A team in the tournament’s semi-finals. After beating the Longhorns, Arizona’s B team lost to Texas A&M’s A team in the championship game, earning it a second-place finish. Sophomore Kayla Darris, who plays on the B team, was satisfied with her teams’ win at the tournament and is excited for the Las Vegas Open next week. “I think we will finish at least in the top 10 of B teams,” Darris said. “The goal is to make it to the gold bracket to play against A teams.” Arizona’s A team played in the UC Davis Far Westerns tournament during the same weekend. For the second consecutive year, the women’s A team won the tournament. They defeated UC Davis, California, UCLA and SDSU for the tournament sweep. The Arizona women’s A and B teams will play in the national qualifier at the Las Vegas Open on March 21 and 22. — Follow Daniela Vizcarra @Vizcarra_DW

BY JOEY PUTRELO The Daily Wildcat
Having lost seven of its last 10 games, Arizona baseball finds itself in a less than ideal situation. Playing their fifth game in as many days, the Wildcats (8-9) will host Air Force (4-8) of the Mountain West Conference in a two-game series. First pitch is tonight at 6:00 p.m., and Wednesday’s start will be at 1:00 p.m. “With the things we’re struggling with, it’d be good to have a couple days of practice to get those fixed,” UA second baseman Trent Gilbert said. “It is tough, but we’ll be doing our best to try and fix it during the games.” Arizona leads the all-time series over the Falcons 11-1. The series will be the first time these programs have faced one another since 1968. Air Force enters this game 0-4 on the road. The UA is coming off a .500 performance over the weekend at the Hi Corbett Classic, where it had a win and a loss each against UC Santa Barbara (10-2) and Mississippi State (12-7). “We’re still a work in progress offensively, but there are some bright spots,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “I saw a competitive spirit over the weekend, and that’s really what we need right now. We lacked some execution so we have to do a better job with that.” Air Force recently went 1-2 against
No. 24 Fresno State, and the run total between the two teams was even at 19. Tonight’s starter for the Wildcats is up in the air. Last Tuesday, righty Cody Hamlin (3-1) got the nod, but Saturday he threw 125 pitches in a 7.1 frame win versus Santa Barbara. The next day, southpaw Tyler Crawford (1-3) toed the rubber, but after another poor outing on Sunday, Lopez said that he is going back to the bullpen permanently. Two possible candidates to start for Arizona are sophomore left-hander Cody Moffett (0-0) or freshman righty Morgan Earman (1-1). Lopez said that Moffett didn’t pitch over the weekend because he was recovering from pneumonia, but he should be ready to go tonight if needed. Freshman left-hander Jacob DeVries (0-0) will be on the hill for the Falcons tonight in his first career college start. He’s made two appearances so far this season, only working 1.1 total innings with a pair of earned runs on as many hits, a walk and a strikeout. “We showed some good signs the first two games of this tournament, so we’ll hopefully take some positives from that moving forward,” Gilbert said.

Americans recognize their planning
KEEP IT SIMPLE
I was at the gym and thought it was funny that the personal trainer was yelling out loud the number of reps his client was doing. I am sure that his mid 20’s client could count to 12 three times. SO, why does he need a trainer? Simple, to motivate and to help him stay the course.

Since Todd received his Certified Retirement Counselor© designation in 2013, he has been focusing on counseling his client’s through their financial journey & analyzing the following benefits: State Retirement programs, Optional Retirement Program, Social Security, 403(b), 401(k), IRA, and ROTH IRA plans.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
The simplest way to start planning is to have an end goal. Goal setting is an efficient way to start to be able to visualize your path to financial success, set a budget for your short term goals, then establish your interim goals and retirement goals.
DON’T BE LAZY!
Implementation is key. Do you have a six month “emergency” fund? Are you trying to pay down your debts? Do you have a dream about what you want your retirement to look like? Are you making the right choices to reach your goals? You need to set and act on your goals while you still have time.

Voyage through space with ‘Cosmos’ BY TAYLOR ARMOSINO The Daily Wildcat
ox debuted its reboot of Carl Sagan’s beloved “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” mini-series on Sunday night. The 13-part remake “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” is hosted by esteemed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. An introduction by President Barack Obama began the show. He stressed the importance of curiosity and exploration, and paid homage to Sagan while encouraging this new generation of viewers to open their minds to science. “The next great discovery could be yours,” Obama said. From the first installment of the series, “Standing Up in the Milky Way,” it’s clear who the target audience is. The show is elementary in its science and storytelling because it’s geared toward younger viewers. However, Tyson’s tone is not condescending; it is about teaching, not lecturing. Still, the show has a multitude of problems. Sagan’s “Cosmos” was lauded for its amazing special affects. Artistically, this first episode was a dud. It was too Hollywood-like, starting with its title “A Spacetime Odyssey,” likely an homage to Stanley Kubrick’s classic film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Tyson cruises around the solar system in a spaceship shaped like Boba Fett’s vessel from the “Star Wars” movies. The show unintentionally draws laughs when it depicts Tyson sitting Emperor Palpatine-style, looking out the front window of the ship. With Tyson cruising around space, striking the right tone with the special effects is a necessity. “Standing Up in the Milky Way” doesn’t quite get there. It’s almost as if the colors are too vibrant. The show looks too much like the newer “Star Wars” movies. It should look more like “Gravity,” which didn’t overwhelm with vibrancy, but rather produced a darker outer space that felt more real. Budgetary issues might be to blame for this. The special effects aren’t Syfy channel horrible; they’re just a little off. Later in the episode, Tyson introduces us to Giordano Bruno, a 16th century Franciscan monk who was burned at the stake for his scientific beliefs. His story is in dull 2D animation. Tyson’s storytelling prose is fine, but the on-screen image is too bland. It’s boring, something a show like this should never be. Worse than the 2D imagery, Bruno’s

the Milky Way” is to illustrate just how story reeks of cheap propaganda. Sagan small humans are. It does this well, as was also skeptical of religion, but Tyson is much more militaristic on the subject. He even takes a dig at Bruno, pointing out that This is a show that should be inclusive, he was not a man of science informing the uninformed about the but a man of faith, and that his nature of the galaxy. correct vision of the cosmos was a lucky guess. This isn’t the right medium to paint religious Tyson successfully drives home how people as closed-minded psychos, but young and small the human race is in the that’s what the show does. grand scheme of things.

in moving forward. Tyson is a star in the science world, and it’s easy to see why. Born in 1958, he is a byproduct of the “Space Race” era and was in his twenties when Sagan’s “Cosmos” debuted. He’s articulate and smart, but he isn’t boring or condescending. When he’s not depicted ridiculously like a “Star Wars” character, he fits in nicely on screen, much like Sagan. And by the end of the episode, he has laid out the right message. “Follow the evidence wherever it leads,” Tyson said, “and question everything.”

Protein necessary in Who. What. balancing healthy diet Wear. Alyssa Mazza, animal sciences junior
BY camille carlin The Daily Wildcat
Protein isn’t just a powder for workout fanatics — it’s an important part of a healthy lifestyle for everyone. Protein is one of the essential food groups in maintaining a healthy diet, and it’s important to recognize how much your body needs in order to have a healthy balance of nutrients. The amount of protein needed in a diet varies per person depending on age, caloric intake and the amount of activity completed each day. For students, it’s important to know the dynamics of protein to refrain from consuming too much or too little. Many don’t understand the real benefits of protein and are too afraid that they will end up gaining bulky mass instead of lean muscle, so they steer clear of highprotein, low-carbohydrate diets. However, protein is the foundation for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. It also helps hair and nails grow stronger and maintain strength under stress. It’s important to understand all of the benefits that protein has to offer. Besides working as a strong foundation for the body, it also builds necessary enzymes, hormones and vitamins. Proteinrich foods contain beneficial vitamin B, vitamin E, magnesium, zinc and iron. This helps to fight anemia, which can be caused by iron deficiencies. Perhaps the most valuable effect of protein for students is that it provides an energy boost. With a diet that includes the proper amount of protein, bodies turn into powerful, fat-burning, muscle-building machines during daily activity. The most common types of protein are meats, fish, poultry, eggs, nuts, seeds and dairy products, such as cheese. The recommended dietary amount of protein, as proposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is roughly 46 grams daily for women ages 19 and up, and 56 grams daily for men ages 19 and up.
What are you wearing today? The shirt is from Grand Central and the pants are from Target. How would you describe your style? My style tends to be dressed-up casual. How do you feel about brighter colors being a trend? I love bright colors, especially when you have a nice tan because it makes you stand out more.
senior studying German and political science What are you wearing today? Khaki chinos from Hollister, a button-down shirt from Hollister, a quarter zip from the [UofA Bookstore] and custom Pumas. How would you describe your style? I try to look classy, comfortable but still casual, all while trying to bear [the] heat we have here.

Enjoying a protein shake can give you an energy boost and help to build lean muscle. Protein is also the foundation for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood.
Protein is one of the three nutrients that provide calories for the body, and the CDC recommends that 10-35 percent of our daily caloric intake come from protein. The more daily activity and exercise you are involved in, the more protein you need to incorporate into your diet. An easy way to control protein intake is through protein shakes, which can be found at most smoothie and juice bars near campus. Fuel, located in the Student Recreation Center, serves multiple types of protein shakes alongside salads, wraps and flatbreads. Another place to purchase
protein-rich shakes is FAB-U-Life located on Speedway Boulevard. FAB-U-Life has dozens of shakes to choose from, including blueberry muffin and other dessert-inspired flavors. The CDC and the United States Department of Agriculture suggest using the “Choose My Plate Plan” on the website choosemyplate.gov to track daily protein intake. Protein has beneficial value for almost all parts of the body and can help boost energy levels to keep you moving at full speed.

Shayla Sandoval, sociology sophomore
What are you wearing today? Today I’m wearing a white flowy top with a bow tied in the front from H&M, orange cut-off shorts from Lucky Brand and rhinestone sandals from ALDO. Looking forward to rocking any spring trends? I read in Elle that black and white with hints of pastels are in and I’m super excited for that. I feel most comfortable when I’m wearing black or white, so the fact that those colors will be “in” is comforting. Who is your fashion inspiration? It’s a tie between Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Both are timeless beauties who still inspire [people]. —Compiled by Alicia Vega
