ASUA candidates take issue BY JAZMINE FOSTER-HALL The Daily Wildcat

Jack Emery, a pre-business freshman and a candidate for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate, felt pretty confident in his position in the election polls. That is, until the Daily Wildcat ran its endorsements for ASUA candidates, in which he was listed as one of seven candidates for senate who didn’t have a platform available on the ASUA elections website. “At the time I wasn’t really too concerned about it, because I knew that voting wouldn’t be

based entirely on students going and checking out the platforms online,” Emery said. “But then when it came up in the [Daily] Wildcat, and we basically got called not accountable … well, that’s not on us.” Emery said the responsibility for his platform being missing falls on Marc Small, elections commissioner for ASUA . The candidates were encouraged to send their platforms to Small as soon as possible during the initial candidates’ meeting in February, and Emery sent his platforms to Small the next day. “I was very prompt with it,”

Emery said. “I sent him what I thought was an ideal outline of my platforms, and it didn’t go up.” Emery said he noticed the platforms were going up sporadically, so he tried contacting Small to ask about his platforms. Small told him the email must have been overlooked and asked him to send another, Emery said. After the second email was sent, his platforms still didn’t make it online. “I know that several other candidates that were called out are on the same boat,” Emery said. “They’ve emailed him multiple times, and I’ve seen the emails

they sent him.” Emery said this wasn’t the first time he was unsatisfied with how Small had done his job. “Throughout the process it’s been a bit of a struggle working with Marc and getting things approved,” Emery said. This sentiment was echoed by Joey Steigerwald, a pre-business and political science freshman and candidate for ASUA Senate. Steigerwald said he also sent Small his platforms multiple times, and Small told him the platforms never went up due to








The UA has launched the Defense and Security Research Institute, looking to double its research spending. The Defense and Security Research Institute aims to provide opportunities for partnerships between the university and other companies. These partnerships will assist in building the UA’s reputation as a preferred partner for defense and security-related programs, UA President Ann Weaver Hart stated in a news release. The launch of DSRI will help the UA in its goal of doubling research spending from $600 million to $1.2 billion in accordance with goals set by the Arizona Board of Regents. The potential partners DSRI could bring in would open up the UA to more opportunities, according to David Allen, vice president of Tech Launch Arizona. Allen said a close partnership benefits both parties by strengthening their resources. “Together we can go to different programs within the department of defense, explain our joint capacities and basically be involved and help formulate programs, rather than just merely being responsive,” Allen said. The institute was developed as a way to bring in additional revenue to support UA research, said Jennifer Barton, interim vice president of research. Along with creating more opportunities for partnerships, the DSRI will also be of assistance to faculty participating in research with the Department of Defense. “To be of interest to the federal agencies it is really important that you … have incredible expertise,” Barton said. The DSRI will allow for faculty to make connections by linking them to program announcements they should know about, helping them get in touch with agency officials and helping them learn how to put together proper proposals, according to Barton. Allen said this new institute should elevate the status of the UA. “We are a player now,” Allen said, “but we have the potential to do so much more.”

ARTIST DAVE CHRISTIANA paints a layer of varnish on his mural for the grand reopening of the Worlds of Words International Collection of Children’s and Adolescent Literature on Tuesday. Christiana is a professor of illustration at the UA School of Art.

BY KATYA MENDOZA The Daily Wildcat

On the fourth floor of the Education building, one of the world’s largest collections of children’s books is getting a makeover. Under renovation since August, the Worlds of Words International Collection of Children’s and Adolescent Literature has expanded its physical space in

addition to new furnishings, studios and various donations from private donors and previous alumni. Dean of the College of Education Ronald Marx said that the world’s second-largest collection of children’s literature, a remarkable resource, was in shabby quarters. “We thought that it was important to create a physical space that would match the quality of that resource,” Marx said.

Kathy Short, a professor in the College of Education and program director of WOW, said this special collection is the only one of its kind in the U.S. that focuses on global international children’s and adolescent literature. “We needed a secure space that reflected [the] beauty and the richness of the collection,” Short said, “as well the different kind of

Fall commencement cancelled BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat


THE UA’S 149TH commencement ceremony was held at the end of the Fall 2013 semester in McKale Center. The UA will cancel its fall commencement ceremony for this December

The UA will not hold a fall commencement ceremony in December due to financial concerns, leaving some with questions. An email sent from the office of Graduation Services and circulated to advisers and faculty on Feb. 26 confirmed that the December graduation is cancelled. “As you may or may not have heard, UA commencement ceremonies will no longer be held in December,” the email read. It also detailed what advisers should tell students scheduled to graduate this December. This included a form letter that could to be sent to students, which would offer them options if they want to take part in a graduation ceremony. They will be given the choice of either walking in the Spring 2014 or Spring 2015 commencement ceremony, or of having their diploma sent to them. Top UA officials could not be reached for comment. Andrew Comrie, UA provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, is expected to make an announcement regarding the permanent fall commencement in the near future, but could not comment at this time, according to Chris Sigurdson, senior

associate vice president for University Relations. Morgan Abraham, an engineering management senior and president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, confirmed that the December ceremony will be cancelled. Abraham said that he was informed of the cancellation by UA President Ann Weaver Hart, but that ASUA was not consulted on the decision. He said that he believes more students who are scheduled to graduate in the fall should have been consulted before the decision was made. Abraham said he had been told that the cancellation was an attempt to save more funds for the UA’s spring commencement ceremony. “They were really kind of focused on making U of A commencement a brand, a thing that is nationally known and gets the attention of high schoolers and college graduates all around the country,” Abraham said. “This was kind of their way of accomplishing that goal.” The UA’s delay in making an official announcement has left many of the colleges’ advisers and administrators unsure about their own graduation ceremonies and what to tell students. Theresa Darras, assistant to the dean of the College of the Humanities, said that she has tried to get a definitive answer as

to whether her college is still having its ceremony, but has been unable to. “People just don’t know what to say when I call them,” Darras said. “I call somebody and they say, ‘Oh, I’m not the person, maybe this person is, I’ll get back to you.’ And then they don’t get back to me.” Darras said that she has had students coming to her, asking questions that she has not been able to answer. Erin Deely, program coordinator for the College of Science, said that the College of Science is not cancelling its college-wide graduation ceremony for the fall. She said she had not been consulted about the cancellation, but that it would not affect the College of Science’s ceremony. “It seems to me like it would be even more important for the colleges and departments to maintain [their fall graduations],” Deely said. John Jones, dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, also confirmed that he knew of the cancellation. He said that SBS will still be conducting a fall commencement ceremony. It is unclear at this time if the elimination of the UA’s fall commencement ceremonies is permanent. — Follow Hannah Plotkin @HannahPlotkin

Tylenol overdoses prove deadly BY Adriana espinosa The Daily Wildcat

Data compiled by the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center shows that Tylenol overdoses kill more people than car crashes, and the center is looking to do something about it. The APDIC at the University Of Arizona College of Pharmacy is trying to educate UA students and the general public about the dangers associated with taking too much acetaminophen. According to Dr. Keith Boesen, pharmacist and director of the APDIC, acetaminophen is an over-the-counter drug used primarily to reduce fever and treat pain. This popular drug is also most commonly known as Tylenol or APAP. “The age range of UA students is one of the prime ages where people are unintentionally overdosing on over-the-counter drugs,” said Liz Barta, outreach coordinator for APDIC. “Really it’s young and middle-aged adults that are dying at the highest rate from unintentional medical overdose.” A 2012 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report showed that 78 percent of deaths caused by drug overdoses in the U.S. in 2010 were unintentional. “Many people get harmed, but weren’t intending on harming themselves,” said Dr. Mazda Shirazi, medical director for APDIC. “They were on medications and did not realize

that mixing or taking something else would harm them.” Barta adds that people easily get bottles of medications mixed up, often from failing to read the label. More than 600 over-the-counter drugs contain acetaminophen, Boesen said. Prescription narcotics such as Vicodin and Percocet also contain high doses of acetaminophen. “You can throw a dart in a pharmacy and you’ll probably hit acetaminophen,” Boesen said. “It’s a very common pain medication found in just about anything.” Tylenol is the most popular acetaminophen medication, but it is also found in NyQuil, Midol, Excedrin and others, Barta said. Although there is a recommended maximum dosage for most over-the-counter and prescription drugs, according to Shirazi, people taking medicine often use the therapeutic index to measure the dosage themselves. The index shows how much medication a person needs to take in order its effects. “Therapeutic doses could potentially be poisonous,” Shirazi said. “Just because some drugs are over-the-counter does not mean that they can’t have severe side effects.” While these drugs have their own side effects, one of the most common signs of overdosing is abdominal pain. The maximum daily dosage of acetaminophen that an adult should consume each day is 4,000 milligrams, Barta said.

There have been concerns about the safety of the top-selling over-the-counter painkiller acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is the main ingredient in Tylenol, Midol, Dayquil, Nyquil, Vicks and other drugs.

Some UA students are looking to make a difference this Spring Break by passing up a trip to Cabo or Lake Havasu, in order to help with issues such as hunger, poverty and medical care. The University of Arizona Alternative Breaks programs will be sending five student-led groups to cities across the country on various community service projects. Each group has a unique service focus, such as poverty, homelessness, health care access, food insecurity and nature preservation. The groups travel to metropolitan areas like New York City, San Francisco and Denver, according to Kate Medici, the associate director of Alternative Breaks. While in New York, the students plan to work with Youth Service Opportunities Project and volunteer in clothing banks and soup kitchens, said Leah Gluck, the trip’s leader and a speech and hearing sciences freshman. Gluck emphasized her desire for the students to understand how prevalent issues of poverty and homelessness are. “A lot of times when you’re living in the university community, it’s kind of like we’re in a bubble, and they don’t really … see how challenging it can be for some people,” Gluck said. “I really hope that this opens their eyes to other issues and this will be the spark for people to continue to do social justice at home.” Students on the trip to Sacramento, Calif., led by Nikhita Pakki, a physiology senior, will work side by side with Habitat for Humanity to construct homes for families with low incomes. “Once [the students] see what goes into building a house … the effort, the amount of people that work with it, the kind of things that go on in the background of it,” Pakki said, “we hope to inspire them through showing them the different aspects of what it takes to build one single house.” A third excursion to Denver will assist Project C.U.R.E., an organization the delivers medical supplies to countries

around the world, in a warehouse assembling packages to send to third-world countries filled with medicine, syringes, vaccines and other needed medical tools. The trip leader, Dario Alvarez, a biology senior, discussed the importance of not only service, but of being informed. “I hope that the participants can understand the differences in health care between Third World countries and the US or other countries,” Alvarez said. “I hope that they see that their work is for a purpose, that everything that they’re doing right now … will have a bigger impact on the world.” To Pakki, the trips are a unique experience because they give students a chance to make a difference in their home country instead of flying overseas to do service. “When you want to go out of Arizona or Tucson to do some sort of service project, it is a great opportunity,” Pakki said. “I think it makes a larger impact because it’s affecting your own community.” Medici emphasized that simply doing the service is not all the program is about. “[It’s about] teaching people the bigger meaning behind what they’re doing,” Medici said. “Like how to bring it back to your life here [in] Tucson, and how can it be a value in your life every day.” Having gone on an Alternative Breaks trip to New Mexico before she became associate director, Medici said she feels like the experience would not be the same without the reflection. “It was a lot more impactful to me and had a deeper meaning than just going and volunteering and feeling good for a little bit,” Medici said. Overall, Alternative Breaks seeks to get students more involved with their local community, Medici said. “What we want all students to eventually become is an active citizen, which is when community becomes a priority in their values and their life choices,” Medici said. “We want people to be lifelong servers.” — Follow Elizabeth Eaton @Liz_Eaton95

ASUA Senate considers UA tuition, tobacco ban by meghan fernandez The Daily Wildcat

A petition in favor of guaranteed tuition for the UA had reached 1,000 signatures as of Wednesday night, ASUA President Morgan Abraham told the ASUA Senate on Wednesday night. “Guaranteed tuition has been going unbelievably,” Abraham said. Abraham encouraged Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate members to attend the tuition hearing hosted by the Arizona Board of Regents on March 25, where he will present the guaranteed tuition initiative. Volunteer UA is also waiting for a senate approval of its bylaws revisions. These revisions will allow the two assistant directors to oversee three commissioners, according to Amanda Lester, administrative vice president of ASUA. Currently, there are two assistant directors in Volunteer UA: One oversees internal affairs and the other oversees external affairs, Lester said. The revision would allow Volunteer UA to expand its work into more social justice issues. The three commissioners for each assistant director would be based on a specific social justice issue, such as Tucson youth, according to Lester. “We’re really just trying to open this up for more volunteer opportunities,” Lester said. Bryan Namba, executive director of Volunteer UA, said these bylaw revisions are an effort to reflect how UCLA encourages civic engagement. If these revisions are passed, each commission under the assistant

directors will host a large civic engagement event, in addition to smaller events throughout the semester, Namba said. Volunteer UA will find out at the next ASUA Senate meeting on March 26 whether the bylaw revisions were approved, Namba said. Several senators also gave updates about their specific committee. The Student Affairs Policy Committee voted in favor of the tobacco-free policy, according to Sen. Chris Chavez. The policy will now be sent to the Faculty Senate for further review. Chavez said he is in favor of the policy because he thinks it will create a healthier environment for campus. While he supports the policy, Chavez also wants to make sure there is accommodation for students who are smokers. If the policy is passed, Chavez said

he would like to see smoking areas off campus provided for students. Chavez also announced updates about his bursar’s platform during senator reports at Wednesday’s meeting. This platform centers around making the bursar’s account open the entire year for students. “As a freshman, I ran up my full bursar’s amount because I didn’t know the next time it would be open,” Chavez said. Chavez said once his term is up as senator, he still plans to work on this bursar’s platform with the UofA Bookstore. “I think it’s important as a senator that every single student’s voice is represented,” Chavez said.

purposes, such as extended interaction and activity that also focused more around authors and illustrators.” On the north side of the building, two window panels have been added with watercolor illustrations painted by David Christiana, a professor of illustration at the School of Art. “I hope people feel really good about it, this facility will … impact a lot of people, students and scholars,” Christiana said. “Anyone that visits, I think can really get inspired by it.” Christiana has also been finishing up a mural piece at the entrance of the WOW, a project he’s been working on for three weeks. “The fun of it is that I think it should be open to interpretation,” Christiana said. “There are creatures that could be a mouse, they could be a dog, a rat or they could be just some incarnation that anyone can dream up.” A collection of more than 30,000 books resides in WOW, including a donation by Mary J. Wong, a UA alumna and a librarian from Glendale, Ariz. “It is important for the public to understand that these kinds of resources … are increasingly the result of private philanthropy and our donors have made this possible,” Marx said. Wong has donated a private collection of more than 1,000 signed first-edition books, as well as more than 100 pieces of art and illustrations from picture books. Short said WOW is meant to be a celebration of story and the role it plays in the lives of not only children, but adults as well. “It’s an educational, cultural treasure,” Marx said. Unique for its flexibility, amenities and resources, the WOW is meant to reach not only university students, but also international scholars and children in a beautiful place. “We’re hoping that we’re a way that the community can constantly connect with the university,” Short said, “and … for scholars from all over the world that look at the university as a place of unique scholarly activity.”

Tobacco ban smokes out substitutes BY Miki Jennings The Daily Wildcat


ave you ever tried to be productive while suffering from an intense craving? Not necessarily for nicotine, but perhaps for junk food or coffee. If not, let me tell you: It’s really, really, really hard — and not at all conducive to being productive or comfortable. But once again, a new proposal has emerged that would eliminate on-campus smoking. The Tobacco-Free University of Arizona Policy, initiated by Stephanie Kha, a biochemistry junior and director of the Student Health Advocacy Committee, would ban tobacco and smoking-related products from the entire UA campus, hugely inconveniencing on-campus smokers. It would establish the university as a tobacco-free space, and could prohibit smoking everywhere on campus except for inside of a car with closed windows. The ban would allow “smoking cessation products,” like nicotine patches, but that’s it. Any method of smoking, including cigarettes as well as pipes, hookah and e-cigarettes, would be restricted. This policy in its current state would do a huge disservice to campus smokers, and especially overlooks people who use e-cigarettes as an aid to quit smoking and an alternative to nicotine patches, which can cost around $25 to $50 for a two-week supply. In the proposal’s own words, its goal is to create a “healthy, comfortable and educationally productive environment for those who participate in University activities.” Everyone should have the same right to the climate touted by the policy, but choosing SHAC’s route would ultimately take that right away from e-cigarette smokers. Kha doesn’t seem to realize that e-cigarettes may improve the health and productivity of smokers. For people trying to quit smoking, puffing on an e-cigarette when a craving hits can help reduce the need to smoke traditionally. Being stuck on campus for hours without being able to satisfy that craving could drive a person to go home at the end of the day and light up a real cigarette. Dustin Rhodes, a molecular and cellular biology freshman, smokes both regular cigarettes and an e-cigarette to cut back on his traditional smoking. He said that he felt it was unfair to ban smoking while many other behaviors remain uncontrolled on campus. “I wouldn’t mind smoking being restricted to certain areas,” Rhodes said, “but to ban it all over campus is unacceptable as long as the U of A allows people like the preachers to blast their beliefs across campus.” Since e-cigarettes create a vapor instead of burning, they don’t produce the harmful smoke that regular cigarettes do. Currently, there isn’t sufficient evidence to suggest that they create the same secondhand hazards as regular cigarettes. A study published by Zachary Cahn and Michael Siegel in the Journal of Public Health Policy found that “electronic cigarettes show tremendous promise in the fight against tobacco-related morbidity and mortality.” Kha said that she still didn’t view e-cigarettes as a healthy choice. “It’s a very gray area still because there hasn’t been enough research,” Kha said. “It depends on how [e-cigarettes are] used.” SHAC wants to improve campus health, but it’s not SHAC’s (or anyone’s) responsibility to police personal consumption of nicotine, especially when it doesn’t impact public health as a whole. Banning smoking at the university is not going to lead most smokers to quit. Most likely, it’s going to stress them out so much that they smoke more once they leave campus. Designated areas, instead of a ban, could keep non-smokers away from secondhand smoke and vapor (which can have an irritating smell) without inconveniencing so many people on campus. “Students and UA employees support [the policy] and want [the campus to be tobaccofree],” Kha said, “so having that foundation really helps drive the momentum.” But not everyone on campus supports the move for a tobacco-free policy. A 2012 Health and Wellness Survey conducted by UA Campus Health Service showed 70.2 percent support banning tobacco from the university campus. That doesn’t mean that the other 29.8 percent should be disregarded. There should be some compromise. I’m not saying that smokers should be babied and allowed to smoke wherever they want, but this policy severely crosses a line and the people behind it need to step back and

The policy will be under review, taking public feedback into consideration, until April 25. If you have a comment to make about the policy, email Allison Vaillancort at — Follow NAME @ Twitterhandle

Pulse of the Pac From “Positive stereotypes are hurtful, too” by Hailey Yook For the love of everything that’s good and pure, can someone please explain to me what the phrase “You’re so Asian” means?

But positive stereotypes, which are widely embraced and even considered flattering, can be equally detrimental. One particularly harmful positive stereotype of Asians is that they are all smart.

Police Beat BY Jordan Fowler The Daily Wildcat

Sticks and stones

A non-UA-affiliated man was arrested on Feb. 27 after throwing a rock at a UAPD officer. A UAPD officer noticed a man walking south from Hopi Lodge Residence Hall carrying a large black bag. The man placed the bag near a white station wagon, then began to walk toward the Hopi Lodge bicycle courtyard, where the officer lost sight of the man. The officer returned to his patrol car and slowly drove past the area where he had last seen the man. The officer then checked the courtyard and noticed at least three bicycles that appeared to have been tampered with. A second officer then arrived to assist. They looked through the black bag, which looked like a guitar case, and found bolt cutters, pliers and a wrench. However, they were not able to find the man. The officers then drove toward the UA Mall, where the second officer called out that he saw a male who matched the description of the man provided by the first officer. The first officer confirmed that he was the man he had seen earlier. The second officer then reported over the radio that the man was running toward Second Street Parking Garage. The first officer drove his patrol vehicle to the garage and heard the second officer shouting, “Stop, police. Get on the ground.” The first officer drove into the parking garage and witnessed the second officer TASER the man. The first officer then handcuffed the man and searched him for weapons. When questioned about the black bag, the man denied ownership and said he had been near the Main Library enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and looking at the stars. He said he ran from the police because he thought he would be arrested for trespassing. The second officer then said the man had thrown a rock at him. The first officer asked the man why he had thrown a rock, and he said he threw it at the officer’s feet to slow him down so he could get away. The man was arrested and transported to Pima County Jail.

No. 1-seed Arizona opens Pac-12 tournament with No. 8 seed Utah; Arizona won two close games over Utah during the regular season BY ROBERTO PAYNE The Daily Wildcat

After clinching a bye from Wednesday’s first-round games, the No. 1-seeded Wildcats will play No. 8 seeded Utah today in their opening round Pac-12 tournament game. It will be the third time this season that the two schools have played, and the first time that they’ve ever met in the conference tournament. In last year’s Pac-12 tournament, Utah made it to the semi-finals before finally losing to the eventual tournament champion, Oregon 6445. Utah got to the second round of this year’s tournament by beating the No. 9-seeded Washington Huskies in the first round. Tip-off will be at noon on the Pac12 Networks.

Last time they played

The last time Arizona played Utah was on Feb. 19 in Salt Lake City. The Wildcats won the game 67-63 in overtime. It wasn’t pretty for the then-No. 4 Wildcats. Arizona held a nine-point lead at the half, but then only scored 21 points in the second half. A strong shooting performance from Arizona guard Gabe York helped carry the Wildcats to the victory. The Utes held Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon to one of his worst games on the season. Gordon fouled out before the end of regulation, and only contributed three points and three rebounds. Utah didn’t have just one standout player, but instead had contributions from most of its starters and reserves. Where Arizona struggled was with its lack of toughness. In its first meeting with the Utes on Jan. 26, Arizona used its size and was too physical for the less talented Utah team. By the end of the game, the Utes were too tired to compete and ended up losing 65-56 in regulation.

it is an efficient offense in the halfcourt.

Money maker

Who to watch out for

Utah’s offense is no joke. Heading into the Pac-12 tournament, the Utes averaged 77.2 points per game, which is the 41st most in the country. In doing so, they shot with .497 percent accuracy, the fifth highest in the country. It doesn’t have much size down in the post, so it won’t get many second-chance opportunities, but


JUNIOR GUARD Nick Johnson (13) lays the ball in as Utah Junior Delon Wright (55) looks on during Arizona’s 65-56 win on Jan. 26. The Arizona Wildcats will play the Runnin’ Utes today to open the Pac-12 tournament for the Wildcats, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, . No. 8 seed Utah beat No. 9 seed Washington 67-61 on Wednesday.

While Utah has an efficient offense, it has one player that is above the rest. Junior Delon Wright was named to the Pac-12 first team All-Conference squad at the end of the season. The junior college transfer averaged 16.1 points per game during the regular season to go along with an average of 6.9 rebounds. He is Utah’s go-to player

and has rarely had a bad game. Utah’s 124-51 victory over St. Katherine on Dec. 28 was the only game this season where Wright scored fewer than 10 points. Since coming to Utah, Wright has emerged as a possible first-round draft pick either this year or next.

and it hurt them. For Utah, it needed another strong performance from someone other than Wright. If it can get key contributions from multiple scorers, than it could outscore the more talented Arizona team who has struggled on offense as of late.

Keys to the game

For Arizona, it’s sticking to what it does best, which is to outrun the opposing team. It got away from that against Utah in its previous game,

Arizona baseball junior Joseph Maggi’s teammates voted to suspend him from the team indefinitely on Saturday. According to teammates, Maggi appeared noticeably drunk when he arrived for a Wildcats’ game this past weekend after attending a pool party at a fraternity he is unaffiliated with. Starting players confirmed that while Maggi was in the batting cage preparing for a game, the team took a vote and turned Maggi’s number 15 jersey into the coach’s office. “It was pretty much unanimous,” an anonymous player said. Since then, the starting right fielder and member of the 2012 National Championship team has been in his hometown of Phoenix. Maggi is old enough to legally drink, and members of Arizona Athletics said the department is taking care of the issue. “He is suspended indefinitely and we’re taking it day-by-day in house,” head coach Andy Lopez said after the game on Tuesday. Lopez also said that this was the real world and actions will have consequences. “Our world is based [on] accountability,” he said. “You do A, you get B.” The usual starter was not in the starting lineup during Arizona’s 10-5 home victory over UC Santa Barbara on Saturday. He has not played since. “I haven’t talked to him [since],” an anonymous player said. “I know some people

might think it is like turning a back on a teammate, but for him to do that to us kind of feels like that.” Lopez said that Maggi is still on the roster so it is possible he could rejoin the team later. Maggi, who was not available for comment, has started nine of the Wildcats’ 19 games and has the second-lowest batting average on the team at .194 with one run batted in. Despite his recent struggles at the plate, the junior was a key piece of the Wildcats’ 2012 national championship team when he was a freshman. That season Maggi started 45 of Arizona’s 65 games. He had a batting average of .326 and a fielding percentage of 99 percent. Over the past three years, he has split time in the outfield as well as first base. Until a final decision is made on Maggi’s future the Wildcats may keep freshman Kenny Meimerstorf in right field. As of Thursday, Meimerstorg had the team’s lowest batting average, of .167. Meimerstorf has started nine games this season and played in 12. Another option Lopez could turn to is current designated hitter Tyler Krause, who is hitting .267 in 15 at bats and is listed as an outfielder on Arizona’s roster. Lopez and all the players asked said they were confident in whoever replaces Maggi for the time being until a final decision is made. Players said they have no regrets about the decision they made. “We did what we felt was best for the team,” the anonymous player said. After Wednesday’s 10-2 win,

JUNIOR OUTFIELDER Joseph Maggi was suspended indefinitely by the baseball team.

Lopez said he talked to Maggi on Tuesday afternoon and that they will revisit the issue later on in the week. “He understood the situation,” Lopez said. “I’m sure he’s not happy with it; I’m not happy with it. But sometimes you’re a young guy and you have to pay for your actions.”

At times last season, head coach Rich Rodriguez struggled with the depth at wide receiver. An injury to presumed No. 1 receiver Austin Hill was a driving factor behind Rodriguez’s uncertainty and forced younger players into action. By the end of the year, several of those young players, such as Trey Griffey, Nate Phillips and Samajie Grant, provided the receiving threats that had been missing from the offensive dynamic all season. Now with Hill back, the young guys returning, the freshman recruits and the additions of transfers DeVonte’ Neal and Cayleb Jones, Rodriguez said there are plenty of options for the Wildcats. “There were times last spring and the spring before that we didn’t have enough bodies,” Rodriguez said. “Now we have plenty of bodies and I think we’ve got really good competition there.” With so many players, the fight for the starting wide receiver spots should be one of the most competitive positional battles on the entire team. At least seven players have a legitimate case to be a part of the starting unit. Chief among those players is Hill. Two seasons ago, the 6-foot-3 receiver led Arizona with 1,364 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. Coming out of the slot, Hill stabilized an otherwise inexperienced receiving corps. Behind him are the trio of Grant, Griffey and Phillips. Grant and Phillips stand at 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9, respectively, and

Arizona blasts Air Freshman Gymcats Force, sweeps set step into key roles BY joey putrelo The Daily Wildcat

Arizona baseball picked up a second straight win and got its record back over .500 again. After demolishing Air Force (4-10) the previous night by 12 runs, Wednesday the Wildcats (10-9) blew it out again 10-2 at Hi Corbett Field. Overall, the UA outscored the Falcons a total of 24-4. “I told them [the Wildcats] our record is 0-0 right now,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “Here’s the reality: When we play good baseball we usually win, and when you don’t play good baseball it really doesn’t matter. The problem is we’ve had a propensity to play bad baseball coming out the gate.” Sophomore center fielder Scott Kingery was a nightmare for Air Force’s pitching staff the entire series. The Wildcats lead-off man went 3-4 at the plate with two runs scored, a walk and was a home run from hitting for the cecilia alvarez/The Daily Wildcat cycle.

Second newborn ‘cured’ of HIV BY MICHAELA KANE

A The Daily Wildcat

t a recent AIDS conference in Boston, Mass., researchers announced they had effectively cured a baby of HIV, making the child the second newborn baby to be functionally cured of the disease. In an article recently published by The New York Times, researchers said they essentially cured the baby of Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV, with aggressive drug treatment hours after the child was born. Although the child is still being treated, doctors said that even the most sensitive blood tests are unable to detect any sign of the virus. However, researchers caution that this does not necessarily mean the child is completely cured of the disease. The apparent success of the treatment has opened the door for a clinical trial that will administer an aggressive HIV treatment to up to 60 newborns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 50,000 people are diagnosed with HIV each year, with the majority of infections occurring in gay and bisexual men as What well as intravenous makes this drug users. type of While the virus diffidisease is primarily cult is that s p r e a d the DNA through is then unprotected integrated s e x u a l into our contact, it own DNA. can also be transmitted — Nafees d u r i n g Ahmad, childbirth if professor of the mother is imunobiology infected with HIV. “There are three ways that a mother can pass the virus to her children,” said

Nafees Ahmad, a professor in the department of immunobiology and an HIV researcher. The most likely form of transmission occurs as the baby passes through the birth canal. In other cases, the child is exposed to the virus via the placenta, though this happens less frequently. The third way a child can contract HIV from its mother is through breast milk, making it a significant problem in developing places like India and Africa because of the possibility of malnutrition if a baby is not breast-fed, Ahmad said. When HIV-positive women are pregnant, they are often treated with anti-HIV drugs during pregnancy to lessen the likelihood of passing the disease onto their child. Thanks to this type of treatment, doctors at the University of Arizona Medical Center have not seen an HIVinfected baby in the last several years, said Ahmad. T h o u g h t h e s e advancements have made significant strides toward transforming HIV into a chronic disease rather than a death sentence, there is still work to be done before an outright cure is found. The reason that HIV is so problematic is that after the virus attaches itself to a host cell, it infiltrates the genetic code of the host, said Eric Price, a lecturer in the department of physiology. “What makes this type of virus difficult is that the DNA is then integrated into our own genome so it is part of our DNA,” he said, “and it’s hard to fight something that is part of your own code.” When HIV infects the body, it affects T helper cells, or white blood cells, which play a significant role in the immune system, Ahmad said. The infection of these T cells leads to “immunodeficiency” in hosts, meaning their immune system is unable to fight back

against infectious agents. “HIV kills the T helper cells, so when these cells are killed, they cannot provide help to other immune cells in order to fight infection,” Ahmad said. When the body’s immune system is no longer able to fight back against infections, HIV develops into Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, or AIDS. This occurs when the number of T helper cells has dropped dramatically, according to the CDC. Without these cells, the body cannot activate its immune system.

Though there are treatment options available for those living with HIV, there is no cure. Patients instead take medication that decreases the viral load, or the amount of the virus circulating in the body. For those taking the medication, the viral load can sometimes be undetectable, as it was for the functionally cured newborn. “Having an undetectable viral load when on medication is not uncommon,” said Kareem Shehab, an assistant professor in the UA Department of Pediatrics who specializes in infectious diseases. “Having an undetectable viral load is the goal of HIV therapy.” Though researchers view the news of the newborn with optimism, many — including Shehab — hesitate to use the word “cured” to describe the child, opting instead to say the baby is in remission. Calling the child cured with any degree of certainty is difficult due to

the fact that the virus can continue to exist in “holes” or “reservoirs” in the body that do not show up in blood tests, Ahmad said. So, while the viral load is undetectable, the virus may still b e present. Currently, scientists are trying to figure

o u t a way to flush the virus out of these reservoirs in order to kill it with HIV medication and completely eradicate it from the body, he said. A second article published in The New York Times explored the idea of altering the genes that allow HIV to take hold in the body. Some people have a

mutation known Ahmad

in a gene as CCR5, said, that makes it difficult for them to become infected with HIV. Scientists are therefore looking for ways to enact this mutation in the gene to slow the spread of the disease and decrease the risk of contraction. Despite the breakthroughs being made in HIV and AIDS research, no patient has been proven to be 100 percent cured of HIV. “This [functionally cured newborn] is very incredible news,” Ahmad said, “but they need more cases to be cured, and a follow-up study is very important.”

Local bugs attract mates by dancing on Tumamoc Hill BY MICHELLE KOSTUK The Daily Wildcat

Bees do it. Flies do it. Even educated UA students do it. Native carpenter bees are doing their mating dance now and for the next few weeks at Tumamoc Hill , a popular urban hiking spot and ecological field research station for the UA. Dance is a form of communication, even for the fuzzy, golden male carpenter bees buzzing in and


TUMAMOC HILL is a natural ecosystem managed by the UA College of Sciences and Pima County where carpenter bees will be performing mating dances for the next few weeks.

out of the creosote bushes at Tumamoc. Unlike bumblebees, carpenter bees are not social insects. This makes their mating dance a crucial part of reproduction, said Stephen Buchmann , an adjunct professor and research associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology . “You don’t think that [the bees] are capable of higher communication, but that is what it is,” said Kathleen Walker, an assistant professor in the Department of Entomology. The aggressive male carpenter bees are known for chasing other males as well as other animals, including humans, out of their territory, Buchmann said. But as male carpenter bees do not have stingers, hikers at Tumamoc Hill don’t need to worry about being attacked on the trail. Because the hill is a research area for the UA, it is closed from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. For carpenter bees, dance communicates sexual availability. While the carpenter bees’ display is aimed at “getting busy,” not all bees use dance for strictly sexual purposes. Bumblebees live in hives containing a queen and female worker bees, therefore, competing for a mate is less important, Buchmann said. Walker explained that the bumblebee’s “waggle” dance is a way for them to communicate to other bees where to look for nectar, water or new hive locations. Other species of insects, such as fruit flies, have their own mating dance, Walker said, proving that carpenter bees do not have a monopoly on dirty dancing.
