UA students entitled to accountability, openness

T

here has always been a tension between government and the media, and the relationship between ASUA and the Daily Wildcat is no exception. This tension is inescapable, but more importantly, it’s a vital part of the democratic process. Part of the Daily Wildcat’s mission is as follows, “The student employees of the Daily Wildcat strive to provide the primary source of information, for, by and about the UA community, contributing to campus life by providing a voice for students.” In following this mission, we strive to hold every authority accountable, including the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. But like ASUA, we also need to be held accountable to the people we work for. And when we fail to fulfill our mission, we fail our readers. We demand transparency; it’s only fair that our readers expect the same of us. Each year, the Daily Wildcat interviews and selects ASUA senatorial, vice presidential and presidential candidates for endorsement. These interviews are a valuable part of the endorsement selection process because, as journalists, we recognize that anyone can write a nice three-paragraph blurb about their platforms. Face-to-face interviews force candidates to demonstrate how much research they’ve done and how much passion they have for the job. Each candidate was asked what they believe is the biggest challenge faced by students and how to address that challenge. We also asked what they would change about ASUA and the steps they would take to implement those changes. Typically, these interviews take place with several members of the Daily Wildcat’s editorial board. Because of a breakdown in communication, one we take complete responsibility for, interviews this year took place with just one member and appeared disorganized. Some ASUA candidates called us out on it, as they should have. While we stand by our endorsements, and continue to firmly believe that ASUA can do better than what it has offered, we also recognize that we can too. After the interviews, members of the editorial board reviewed our selections for endorsement. We were disappointed with the abundance of underdeveloped ideas and the lack of planning, bored by the dependence on meaningless buzz words and surprised by candidates who claimed ASUA needs little changing. What we failed to do for our readers was ensure that they understood why this matters. The Daily Wildcat’s overall coverage of ASUA has declined over the last couple of semesters. While the news reporters who cover ASUA are kept entirely separate from the endorsement process, overall coverage in both the news and perspectives sections of the paper builds context for readers. When that coverage fails to meet the standards we’ve set in the past, it’s hardly fair of us to point at ASUA and say, “You aren’t doing enough.” We don’t have any agenda, except to make sure other people are doing their jobs to the best of their abilities. We don’t think they are. But neither are we. If we suspect ASUA is not doing enough, our news reporters have to report on that. If we think ASUA can do better, our opinions columnists have to offer solutions. And all of this coverage has to keep happening, every day. It’s important to note that the Daily Wildcat and ASUA alike are important institutions made up of students who have to fumble their way forward. We strive. We fall short. We learn from our mistakes and we try again. — Editorials are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board and written by one of its members.

Green Fund pays for 20 projects aimed to enhance UA sustainability efforts By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT

E

ach year, $24 of every student’s tuition contributes to the student-run Green Fund, which finances projects aimed at making the UA campus more sustainable. This year, 10 students will decide where each year’s $400,000 will go. In 2011, the first Green Fund committee was able to distribute $700,000 to 20 projects. Here’s a snapshot of three of them: Project: Technologies for Enhancing Food Production, Resource Use Efficiencies and Environmental Friendliness Funds received: $137,900 Department: Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering–Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC) Just in case you thought greenhouse agriculture couldn’t get any greener, the Green Fund gave money to the Controlled Environment Agriculture Center to build a more

sustainable greenhouse by combining solar power with conventional energy sources. The objective is to create an off-grid greenhouse system that will be affordable and easy to establish for small to medium-sized growers. The system will improve resource efficiency by using solar panels to power the greenhouse’s cooling, irrigation and climate control, said Murat Kacira, the principal investigator for the project and an associate professor in the Department of Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering.

A set-up like this can be used in many ways, from supplying fast, fresh food to places that have been hit by natural disasters, to providing an alternative for growers living in harsh climates, to giving military operations in remote locations a steady food supply at a low cost. “There is a huge interest for fresh food, safe food and local food production, especially in urban settings. So this can be an alternative system for those who are considering such applications,” Kacira said. “That’s, I think, the

UA to permanently increase graduation fees this month By Brittny Mejia DAILY WILDCAT Graduation fees are set to rise this month, giving graduates something more to worry about than making it through the semester. When students apply to graduate they are charged a $35 fee, but this month it will rise to $50. The fee will be implemented starting with December 2012 graduates and on. If a student’s graduation application is late, he or she will be charged an additional $50 fee to graduate. A portion of this fee will go to the President’s Office to help with commencement costs, which have also increased, according to Jody Payne, an assistant registrar in the Office of the Registrar. The rest of the candidacy fee covers the cost of diplomas and related registrar’s office expenditures, she added. In order to increase the fee, the registrar’s office created a proposal and a fees committee

Starting next semester, students must pay $50, up from $35, in order to graduate.

approved it, Payne said. The UA has not increased the candidacy fee in 11 years and research of peer institutions showed that the UA fee was lower, Payne added. The Office of the President will receive $14 of the $50 fee to cover various commencement costs, and the remaining $36 will go to the Office of the Registrar.

When explaining some of the registrar expenditures Payne said, “Well, staff salary is obviously one.” The increased fee proposal went through the committee process, and given the expenses and what they were covering, the fee seemed reasonable, said Vice Provost Gail Burd, who runs the

fee committee. There are three faculty members who sit on the committee, in addition to a representative from the bursar’s office, a graduate student and an undergraduate student. The registrar’s office is slated to receive $248,000 from the fee increase and the president’s office is expected to get $96,000, according to Burd. Despite the fee increase, Burd said the registrar’s office will come up $82,000 short in covering all the costs the increase was supposed to cover. This includes costs to make diplomas and help pay the salaries of UA employees who oversee degree checks. With more students graduating over the years there are more commencement costs, said Keith Humphrey, the dean of students and assistant vice president of Student Affairs. The UA has to print more commencement programs and open more staging areas to support

With the funding, the project has built two high tunnel greenhouses, structures that are unheated and covered in plastic, where the center will conduct its research. These buildings are flanked by several rows of solar panels. So far, they have installed enough solar panels to provide 5 kilowatts of power, but once the project is completed at the end of the month, they will be able to produce an additional 25 kilowatts. All the solar panels were given to the project by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in an in-kind donation valued at $30,000, according to Kacira. Tomatoes will be the first crops grown in the project because they can tolerate stressful climates and produce a canopy of vines that help cool their surroundings, Kacira said. In a couple of weeks, cherry tomato seedlings will be settling into their new homes inside the greenhouses.

College of Architecture develops undergrad degree in sustainability By Kyle Mittan DAILY WILDCAT

A new degree in sustainability will be offered next semester in the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture that will allow students to develop an understanding of how the green economy works. The Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Built Environments is a 120-credit program made up of four concentration areas: design, planning, open space and recreation, sustainable ecosystems, sustainable communities and housing and heritage conservation. While it is housed in the College of Architecture, the degree addresses sustainability in many areas, according to Ladd Keith, the program’s director. This is why it will implement other departments across campus like public health and chemical engineering in order to broaden its area of study. The degree was started due to a large need for sustainability in the future world of business, Keith said. “There’s a huge need for sustainability currently with all of the climate change and all of the new technologies coming out,” he said. “We were really finding that students were looking for something that was a little bit more dynamic than some of the other degrees that are currently offered on campus.” Ron Stoltz, program director and professor of landscape architecture and planning in the college, was responsible for getting the program approved by the Arizona Board of Regents and the university. This was a two-step process that took a little more than 10 months. “It (a new degree proposal) gets thoroughly vetted for its adherence to the university policies,” Stoltz said. “One of the biggest problems, of course, is to get a reasonable balance between the Arizona General Education Curriculum and the courses in the major.” With the degree approved and classes ready to begin this fall, the response from students has been “phenomenal,” according to Keith. There are currently 15 students enrolled in the program. “I really chose it (the degree) because it’s more focused on what I wanted to do,” said Chris Pennick, a senior who previously studied regional development. “It’s really broad, and that’s kind of the benefit of it. It gets us a taste of everything and then kind of lets us make our own little path.” Ome Eichenberger, a sophomore who used to study architecture, said she also enrolled into

the program to fulfill her interest in sustainable agriculture that she said she couldn’t find with any other degree. “Once I heard about this degree, I looked more into it and it kind of described what I’ve wanted to do ever since middle school,” she said. Eichenberger said she would like, once graduated, to put her degree to use in a leadership position as a CEO, adding that it’s something she’s always wanted to do. Jan Cervelli, the dean of the college, said the leadership aspect of the degree is a large part of the program itself, adding that she hopes the UA will become a primary source for green economy leaders with the addition of the program. “The future is now,” Cervelli said. “The green economy is very broad and very wide. This is really an opportunity to expose (students) to good grounding to the next step to studying in more detail.” Cervelli added that the ultimate success of the degree will be achieved when the program produces the first CEO of a major corporation. The UA is the second university in the nation to develop a Sustainable Built Environments degree, following the University of Florida, according to Keith.

Graduate students test bacteria and germs in a lab in the Veterinary Science and Microbiology building.

Prof. talks dirty on germ research By Stephanie Casanova

Dirty facts

DAILY WILDCAT

It turns out that phones, desktops and keyboards harbor the most germs in an office setting, far exceeding the amount of bacteria found on the average toilet seat, according to research led by a UA professor. Charles Gerba, a professor in soil, water and environmental science department, tested various offices in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Tucson and found that a desktop contains about 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. “Women’s desks have more bacteria and mold than men’s, because 70 percent of women from what we found store food in their desk, where only about half that number of men do that,” Gerba said. Toilet seats were among the cleanest surfaces found in offices as well as restrooms, with taps and sinks containing the most fecal bacteria. “If there’s ever an epidemic of anything, you should run into the bathroom, drop your pants and sit on the toilet because it’s the safest place,” Gerba said. While public restrooms are cleaned on a daily basis, some of the most touched areas in an office are overlooked when cleaning, causing germs to spread rapidly in just one workday. “When you think of stuff to clean in the office, the phone is not the first thing that’s going to come to mind, but a toilet is going to get cleaned two, three times a day because that’s what people think of as germy and disgusting,” said Ben Rosenfield, a prebusiness freshman. Gerba said he has been testing germs on indoor surfaces and objects for 15 years. Gerardo Lopez, a soil, water and environmental science graduate student focusing on the spread of infectious disease in the environment, has worked with Gerba in testing

the increase in graduates, Humphrey said, which places a higher cost on post-commencement clean up and opening extra facilities. “I don’t really know what the money goes for, but it seems weird that we even have to pay for commencement,” said Kelsey Newman, a biomedical engineering junior. “I don’t agree with the fee going up unless they made commencement fancier than it used to be.” Although fees for commencement are going up, the president’s office tries to find

different surfaces to see which transferred the highest level of germs. Lopez would put non-pathogenic bacteria on a certain surface and wait 30 minutes. He would then touch the surface, swab his finger and take the results back to the lab for testing. The nature of the test itself sometimes made it difficult to obtain samples, according to Jonathan Sexton, a soil, water and environmental science graduate student. “A lot of times, especially when you’re dealing with businesses … they don’t want you to find anything so you’re not always allowed to (obtain samples). So a lot of times you have go undercover and do it,” Sexton said. “It is not uncommon to be kicked out of places.” Consumer product companies, such as Clorox and other disinfectant product companies, fund this research. The college-age generation is the “touch generation,” Gerba said, because students spend about 80 percent of their time indoors and are constantly touching things. The spread of germs lead to the common cold and flu, something that can be prevented if people wash their hands more often, Gerba said.

places that don’t take money from students to cover costs, Humphrey said. The UofA Bookstore, Coca-Cola Co. and the UA Alumni Association, among others, help alleviate commencement costs. “The increase we will get from the registrar’s office helps us a little bit (with commencement), but I think the greatest need was just to cover the rising cost of managing the degree processing (in the registrar’s office),” Humphrey added. Some students even think the fee increase is just a ploy to charge them more money. “I think it is kind of ridiculous,” said Celeste Dipietro, a psychology freshman. “I think this is just their (the university’s) way of trying to get more money from us.”

Porn spurs economic boost for Arizona Andrew J. Conlogue Daily Wildcat

A

fter SB 1070, businesses boycotted Arizona and its economy took a hit. But the state may soon be seeing a huge influx of new industry: pornography. Upset by new Californian laws that force performers to wear condoms, the porn industry has indicated it may move from the San Fernando Valley to the Valley of the Sun. The Porn Star Ball was held only a few days ago in Phoenix, which coincided with the first Adult Film Convention held in the state. “It’s not like they’re doing it out in the open, in public,” said Claude Renner, a business junior. “It might boost our economy.” The California law that prompted the potential move requires adult film actors to wear condoms. This is in response to a recent scare in which an HIV-positive performer may have infected an unknown number of others. Fearing that their freedom of expression will be stifled, and that viewers won’t accept videos with condoms in them, porn stars and filmmakers look eastward. But should Arizona embrace its role as the pornographic promised land? “The California law is a violation of free will,” said Becca London, a senior studying French and political science. “I think it’s really great for our economy.” The moral objections are welltrodden and need not be repeated here, but a large number of people hold them. Even those who don’t object to pornography have qualms with the way the industry operates. “I don’t think that’s exactly the kind of people we want drawn here. States have an interest in protecting people’s rights, but this goes a little too far,” said Lisette Cole, a junior studying philosophy, politics, economics and law. Besides that, becoming a porn center would have confusing effects on Arizona’s strained image. The state is perceived as institutionally racist and politically mad. Adding sexual permissiveness seems, at best, bizarre and, at worst, schizophrenic. But greed makes an excellent counterargument. Pornography is often quoted as a billion dollar industry. Granted, not all that money is concentrated in California, but its share is large enough to be quite interesting to the struggling state of Arizona. About a year ago, The Economist ran an interesting statistic in which it compared the size of state economies to the economies of other nations. Arizona was matched up with Thailand, which is not bad all things considered. California, however, was paired with Italy, a member of the Group of Eight and, debt crises and mismanagement aside, a veritable titan compared with Thailand. And if a billion dollar industry was forced to leave Italy, the Thai government and people would not likely hesitate to welcome it to their country. The analogy isn’t perfect, but it raises a key point about what the wisest thing for Arizona to do is in terms of economics. It seems Arizona has a new immigration issue to contend with. The question is whether government officials will bar them with the same fervor that they put toward transnational illegal immigration, or do the wise thing for the economy and welcome these migrants with open arms and open wallets. — Andrew J.

Stand up to ‘stupid drunk’ friends

S

tupid drunks are at every single party. They’re the ones no one wants to have at their parties because they’re the ultimate annoyance, and they love to stir up trouble. A lot of the time, these people may have legitimate drinking problems. Unfortunately, when they’re sober, they’re often great people, and that makes it harder for friends to stand up to them. The case of George Huguely V, a University of Virginia student, has brought this issue into the spotlight. His friends failed to address his drinking problem in time, leading to the second-degree murder of his girlfriend, Yeardley Love. People need to recognize they have some responsibility for their stupid, drunk friends’ actions. Friends of Huguely told authorities they believed he had developed a drinking problem his senior year, getting trashed several times a week. They also claimed that, right before the murder case, they were considering holding an intervention for him. They waited too long. Hughley had a whole day of nonstop drinking on May 2, 2010, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The Baltimore Sun also reports that since college students communicate with each other with so many variations of technology, the counseling system would only benefit from changing how it communicates. Nevertheless, a line must be drawn. Maybe the increase of overbearing functions of the Internet is to blame for making LUM’s program seem risky, but it feels like students should only have a certain degree of reliance on the Internet, and psychological health should not be included.

POLICE BEAT By Elliot P. Hopper DAILY WILDCAT

Drive and dash

A VIP Taxi driver flagged down University of Arizona Police Department officers after driving four students who left the cab without paying their $20 bill at 1:25 a.m. on Sunday. The students were driven to Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall. Officers began searching for the students, three male and one female, and eventually found the men. All three were intoxicated and slurring their speech, and the cab driver was able to positively identify them. When officers confronted the students, one of them said, “We ran because a girl took our money and we were all a little drunk so we were not thinking and decided to just run.” Students asked the officers if they could just pay the cab driver and be released, but the officers said no. The men were arrested for minor in possession of alcohol in body and theft. They were transferred to Pima County Jail and referred to the Dean of Students Office for Code of Conduct violations.

UAPD officers were on patrol on at 12:26 a.m. on Sunday when they noticed three male students knocking over several Daily Wildcat newspaper stands and tearing down posters for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona elections. As officers approached the students, they shouted at them, saying they needed to stop knocking over the stands and tearing down the posters. The students noticed the officers and immediately threw multiple beer cars into some bushes and sat down on the curb. The officers asked them for identification. Two of the students were UA students while the third was a student from Arizona State University, who said he was visiting campus for the Mac Miller concert. Police noticed the students’ breath had a strong odor of intoxicants, were slurring their speech and had red, watery eyes. The students apologized for throwing the beer cars and knocking over the newsstands. Officers asked them to pick up all of the items they had knocked over. As the students began cleaning up the items, one of them said, “See you idiots, I told you this was a dumb idea to be drinking beer and walking around campus.” The officers cited the students for minor in possession of alcohol in body, spirituous liquor in body and referred them to the Dean of Students Office. The students were escorted back to Hopi Lodge Residence Hall where two of them lived. The leftover alcohol was thrown out.

UAPD officers drove by and noticed the student urinating in a bush. As officers put their vehicle’s emergency lights on, the man tried to run away while urinating. Officers stopped him, and asked where he was going. He told them he came from the bars on University Boulevard and was on his way home. He told officers, “Yeah I have been drinking and I just had to piss really bad.” Officers informed him that it was illegal to urinate in public. As officers were speaking to him, they noticed he had trouble standing up and finishing his sentences. Officers cited him for criminal littering and public intoxication and referred him to the Dean of Students Office.

Bring on the Bruins Big front line presents matchup problem for undersized Wildcats

UCLA prevails in sloppy game over USC, awaits shorthanded UA in second round of Pac-12 tourney

Of the eight schools Arizona could have faced in the second round of the Pac-12 Tournament, no team is a worse matchup for the Wildcats than UCLA. For nearly every area Arizona is weak, UCLA is strong. In the aspects where the Wildcats stand out, the Bruins aren’t far behind. “That’s a tough matchup. They’re quality as a team,” head coach Sean Miller said. “No question they’re one of the five or six teams that can probably win the tournament.” Arizona’s the smallest team in the conference, while the Bruins are by far the largest. Three of its four leading scorers come in at 6-foot-10, one of them being 305-pound monster Josh Smith. Arizona, on the flip side, starts a 6-foot-7 center and a 6-foot-6 power forward, and has struggled keeping opponents off the glass this season. Between Smith and the Wear brothers — Travis and David, who Miller called “two of the best players in our conference” — the Wildcats have their hands full. Arizona snuck past UCLA on Feb. 25 in McKale Center to split the season series, but the game could have really gone either way, as the Bruins were a Jerime Anderson jump shot away from sending it to overtime. The Wildcats also got Smith into early foul trouble, which limited him to only 14 minutes. If Arizona can’t take Smith out of the game this time around, its Pac-12 Tournament run could end early. “You have to look at trapping him, putting two players on him,” Miller said. “You have to make it hard for him to get the ball. You have to be as smart and efficient on offense as you can when he’s in the game.” While Arizona’s perimeter defense is one of the best in the conference, UCLA operates in the paint more than any Pac-12 squad. The 28.1 percent the Wildcats allow opponents to shoot

The matchup is set. The Arizona men’s basketball team will face off against the UCLA Bruins today at 3:30 p.m. in Los Angeles at the Pac-12 Conference Tournament. The Bruins (19-13) defeated the USC Trojans 5540 in the first round of action at Staples Center. Although they got off to a slow start, the Bruins pushed back after halftime and easily handled the Trojans. USC led early in the game, at one point up on the Bruins 21-13, but a dismal 29 percent shooting night sunk any hopes of a Trojan upset. Senior guard Lazeric Jones scored 15 points for UCLA, nearing the 19-point average he posted in the Bruins’ last two regular season contests. Forward Travis Wear added 12 points, while his brother David Wear had a team-high 10 rebounds. Overall, the Bruins did not have a strong game shooting, only 34 percent from the field, and hit just 4-of-15 from beyond the arc. Tyler Lamb had eight points for UCLA, but also turned over the ball five times. With news of Arizona head coach Sean Miller suspending freshman Josiah Turner indefinitely, most of the ball-handling duties will fall on sophomore Jordin Mayes, who is five weeks removed from a stress reaction in his right foot. The Wildcats will need good play from center Angelo Chol and forward Jesse Perry, who has played center for most of the season. Miller said UCLA created problems in the past, matchup wise, for the Wildcats, who split the regular season series with the Bruins.

Arizona baseball beats UC Davis for fifth straight win By Kyle Johnson

Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

“Everything you do now is on your resume for life,” Rich Rodriguez, Arizona’s head football coach, said on March 1st in his first press conference of the spring. Well, some team members really took that to heart. Ironically enough, later that night, four Wildcats, two of which were expected to be starters this upcoming season, got into trouble with the law. Rodriguez spent a lot of time at the press conference talking about how a player’s actions off the field are just as important as those on it, and how being a part of a top athletic program like the one at the UA magnifies their actions. It doesn’t take a magnifying glass to see how badly these players — offensive linemen Fabbians Ebbele and Eric BenderRamsey, cornerback Jourdon Grandon and defensive back Jared Tevis — messed up. Before practice on Wednesday, Rodriguez was, as expected, non-committal about what would happen going forward. But, if the police report proves to be true, it’s plain to see what needs to be done. Ebbele, Bender-Ramsey, Grandon and Tevis need to be kicked off the team, and maybe out of the school. Rodriguez was hired a little less than four months ago, and while it’s unfortunate that he is faced with the prospect of dismissing four players from his roster, he doesn’t have much of a choice. Rodriguez and Athletic Director Greg Byrne need

Football, 10

Center Josh Smith did not play in the first half for the Bruins because of a coaching decision by UCLA head coach Ben Howland. Howland explained in his press conference that Smith sat because he was four minutes late to the team bus took the Bruins from the J.W. Marriott, located across the street from Staples Center, to the game. Smith did not have much of an impact on the game and only scored five points. He did, however, manage to pick up three fouls in less than a minute.

Toward the end of the No. 7 Arizona baseball team’s game last night, it appeared that the Wildcats’ four-game win streak was coming to an end as they trailed UC Davis by a run. Junior Robert Refsnyder started Arizona’s comeback, however, and the UA continued its winning ways with a 6-4 victory. Refsnyder led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a single, his only hit of the game, sparking a three-run rally that gave the Wildcats the win and their second straight sweep. “I’m confident in that situation, I’ve done it many times,” Refsnyder said. “I was fortunate enough to get a hit though.” UC Davis took a 4-3 lead in the top of the eighth inning, but the Wildcats confidently responded. With Refsnyder on second after a fielding error, the Wildcats loaded the bases and freshman Trent Gilbert proceeded to hit the gametying RBI single, all before a single out was recorded. “To be a great team you have to come back in late innings,” head coach Andy Lopez said,

“And the guys did a good job doing that today.” With the score tied and the bases still loaded, junior Bobby Brown reached base on a fielding error, but it was enough to score sophomore Johnny Field for the gamewinning run. “It wasn’t a classic (ball game), it wasn’t exactly clean, but anytime you win a ball game you’re happy,” Lopez said. Freshman pitcher Mathew Troupe closed out the ninth inning with back-to-back strikeouts, securing the Wildcats victory and earning his first career victory. “It’s great to get those close ones, good for moral,” Refsnyder said. “It’s good for Troupe, he’s settling into that closer role. And it’s good for the younger guys, it pumps the team up.” Junior Vincent Littleman started his first game of the season, and while his effort wasn’t outstanding, three runs in 6.1 innings pitched, he did enough to keep the Wildcats in the back and fourth game. The score was tied three different times on the afternoon, and the 6-4 final was the first lead of

more than a run by either team. There was one casualty for Arizona though, as its recent stretch of nearly spotless defense came to an end — the Wildcats had just one error in the past four games. “The elements were a little bit of a factor today and they got the best of us on (two errors),” Lopez said. Despite the three errors in the afternoon, Lopez thought the defense played well, with the lone

exception of a wild throw by Gilbert in the seventh inning. “(The error) was a little bit of carelessness on Gilbert’s part, I’m sure he’ll never do that again,” Lopez said. The win completed the twogame sweep for Arizona after they beat UC Davis 6-0 Tuesday. “We’re playing really good baseball right now, (and) it’s very encouraging for the older guys,” Refsnyder said.

Women’s hoops pulls upset in first round By Cameron Moon Daily Wildcat

With its back against the wall, the No. 12 seed Arizona women’s basketball team pulled off a 61-57 upset over the No. 5 seed UCLA in the first round of the Pac-12 Conference Tournament last night at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. Entering the game, UCLA was one of just three conference wins the Wildcats garnered during the regular season. The game had a familiar feel from the

start for Arizona, as it fell down 7-21 to the Bruins in the first 10 minutes of the game. The Wildcats were able to stage a comeback before the half was over, cutting the UCLA lead from 15 to three (33-30) at halftime. “I’m proud of our team for battling back,” head coach Niya Butts said. “We dug ourselves a hole early in the first half but unfortunately we have done that type of thing all year long. This time we happened to be on the good end of it.” Leading scorer Davellyn Whyte

was at it again, scoring 18 points in 36 minutes, but the most important performance of the game may have come from sophomore guard Candice Warthen. The Warrenton, Ga., native had 17 points, coupled with six rebounds and six assists, and also shot the game-winning jumper with 20.2 seconds left in the game. “Candice (Warthen) hit big shots today, none bigger than that last floater in the paint,” Butts said. “I think I felt like it would be good when it left her hand. What body control to not get a charge in

that situation.” The Wildcats were able to shoot 37.7 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range with their starting point guard, Shanita Arnold, coming off the bench. Arnold contributed 14 points and four assists in a team-high 36 minutes off the bench. “Shanita Arnold was out there, I didn’t start her today, playing with a broken finger, not wanting to go out as a senior the first day of the tournament,” Butts said. “There were a lot of positive things today that happened.”

Tomorrow at 2 p.m. the Wildcats will face their rivals, the Arizona State Sun Devils, who they recently played, losing 70-63 after leading by 10 points at the half. Because of the short time period between games, Butts isn’t letting her team celebrate too much before tomorrow’s game. “We’ll enjoy this victory until we get back to the hotel and then it’s time to prepare for ASU,” Butts said. “We just have to make sure we have our mental mindset right and I think that we will. Win or you go home. It’s that simple.”

Valley Girls are, like, changing modern language for the worse Rebecca Miller Daily Wildcat

he word “like” is the defining marker of speech for Valley Girls. Overusing interjectings such as “like,” and elongating words have often been markers of stupidity and immaturity, but researchers say this vocal trend is merely part of linguistic evolution, and women are setting the trend. However, the determination of how seriously these trends can be taken, is questionable. Even though most of us would consider this way of speaking a forced one, fake and similar to a speech impediment, its role

in society is more sophisticated than originally thought. Instead of representing how teenagers talk to their parents, research shows that it serves as a function of transition and indication within conversations. According to The New York Times, linguists say young women and teenagers deserve credit for pioneering vocal trends and popular slang. “They’re not just using (these embellishments) because they’re girls,” Penny Eckert, a linguist professor at Stanford University, said in the article. “They’re using

basis, perhaps the Daily Wildcat, too, should recognize that the challenges posed to members of ASUA sometimes yield mistakes. As an organization Once referred to as an necessitating transparency, organization overflowing with ASUA must be held accountable “shiny and vapid” representatives, to the student body. However, ASUA has continuously the spiteful words pouring from demonstrated resilience under the tabloid-like pages of the pressure. It takes courage to opinion section often attack confront loopholes in your students directly, undermining organization’s public processes; comprehensive efforts to make it takes courage to spend weeks a positive difference on campus. campaigning for a position you Instead of focusing comments feel overwhelming passion for.

them to achieve some kind of interactional and stylistic end.” Young women are changing modern language and their vocal trends may be markers of evolution in the linguistics field. The study shows that women use language and style shifts to build relationships and establish themselves in social settings. Take Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde,” for example. She uses many of the vocal trends commonly associated with ditsy girls. However, she represents how women sound today and her use of tone and language establishes a connection with modern young women. Researchers say girls embellishing phrases and word endings are conveying a more specific meaning, which is purposeful and not just a representation of the immaturity of their dialect.

College Papers,” I have yet to see the Daily Wildcat deliver an ounce of gumption or good character through their commentary. As our nation battles bullying, it baffles me to open the paper to hateful and unforgiving accounts of students on our campus, penned by fellow Wildcats. I am convinced that the Daily Wildcat can find a way to produce newsworthy headlines and hold our student government accountable without attaching shameful slurs and affronts to its representatives. Understanding that emerging journalists are compelled and called to expose truth, and to quote the editorial board, I write this opinion “in the interest of full disclosure, because you know, the Daily Wildcat believes in that.” — Nicole Pasteur, public administration graduate student

Another example of a popular vocal trend set by women is uptalk, which is ending sentences with the tone of sounding like a question. Cynthia McLemore, a linguist at the University of Pennsylvania, told The New York Times that uptalk is commonly used as a form of establishing authority among women. Men, on the other hand, who demonstrate uptalk within conversations use it in the opposite way. For them it is used to sound friendly without asserting power. Adults, who might scoff at this speech trend, are just as guilty of it. According to the article, in the past 20 years, uptalk has spread to adults of all ages and crossed gender lines. “I’ve heard grandfathers and grandmothers use it,” said David Crystal, a professor of linguistics at Bangor University in Wales. “I occasionally use it myself.”

If linguistics professors and grandparents are using it, clearly this trend has cemented itself in the speech pattern of modern society. But how far is society willing to let its language be dictated by teenage girls? Young women hold the power of setting vocal trends, but some of these trends should be kept from expanding through society. It is unsettling to think that this Valley Girl way of speaking is a social evolution of linguistics. If more of this is what’s to come in the future, it will surely be the death of language and classy conversation. — Rebecca Miller is a junior studying photography and journalism.

to garner a starting role this upcoming season. Their poor decision may just have ruined any future they had in the sport. Their actions put a damper on the excitement brought forth by the start of the Rich Rodriguez era. I’m a keen believer in second chances, and somewhere down the line these players might get that. It just shouldn’t be in Tucson. ­— Zack Rosenblatt is the assistant sports editor. He can be reached at sports@wildcat.arizona.edu or on Twitter via @WildcatSports.

Bender’s criminal assault charges dropped Prosecutors have dropped the criminal assault charge facing Eric Bender-Ramsay. The Carson, Calif., native will still face charges trespassing charges. No court date has been set. Bender-Ramsay, an offensive lineman, is one of four players arrested for their role in a campusarea party early Friday morning. The others were Jourdon Grandon, Fabbians Ebbele and Jared Tevis. Ebbele and Grandon were held out of yesterday’s practice.

UCLA

from page 6

from 3-point range is almost negated by the fact that the Bruins attempted the second-fewest threes in the conference. UCLA’s size doesn’t just give Arizona trouble on the defensive end, it limits them offensively as well. The UA shot only 38.3 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three in their last meeting, while connecting on only 36.2 percent from the floor and 17.6 percent from distance in their first matchup. “We’ve played them twice and we’ve had two of our worst offensive performances of the year against them numbers-wise. We were better at home, but not much better,” Miller said. “Their length around the basket bothers us. For us to beat them we have to be better on offense against them.” Like Arizona, UCLA is a much

better team than its record suggests. Ben Howland’s squad lost five games by three points or less this season, all on the road, and started the season just 2-5. “UCLA’s a lot like us in that you can probably pick four plays and say if those four plays were different, they could be right there to win the conference,” Miller said. UCLA hasn’t gone on a road trip since it played Arizona on Feb. 25, so with a virtual home game against the Wildcats in Staples Center, downing the Bruins becomes that much more of a daunting task. Arizona most likely needs to win out to make the NCAA Tournament but a trio of 6-foot-10 giants, one of the better guards in the conference in Lazeric Jones, a veteran coach in Howland and home court advantage stand in its way. Can the Wildcats answer the bell and take that first step in winning the Pac-12 Tournament? We’ll find out soon enough.
