Study says breathe easier Mild asthma does not need daily treatment By Michelle Weiss ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Those suffering from mild asthma may not need to take medication on a daily basis, according to a new study. A recent 44-week study proved that mild asthma no longer requires daily treatment due to a new method that allows patients to better manage the disease. The new method involves combining controller and reliever medications to reduce the regular dosage amount that a person would normally take, said Dr. Fernando Martinez, a pediatrics professor and the director of the BIO5 Institute. The majority of asthma patients have the mild level of the disease. Martinez, also the director of the Arizona Respiratory Center, who worked on the study, said its purpose was to find a different way to treat asthma so that patients would no longer need a daily regimen of medication. Dr. Sakina Bajowala, an allergy and immunology specialist with Dukane Allergy Asthma Associates Ltd., did not work on the study but has a private practice where she treats asthmatic patients. “When I talk to parents and children about their asthma, once they understand what the risks are of not controlling the asthma, then they’re more than likely to feel more comfortable with using preventative medicine,” Bajowala said. The two main problems are that many patients have to take

Green Fund Committee Chair Lon Huber, middle left, and Vice Chair Chad Travis discuss potential projects for funding on Tuesday in the Student Union Memorial Center. Projects on the docket included green and sustainable projects around campus.

Green Fund Committee doles out the dollars


The Green Fund Committee allocated $745,800 to various UA sustainability projects on Tuesday. The student-led committee formed last semester when a $24 increase was added to tuition to fund sustainability initiatives on campus. The Green Fund receives $400,000 of that to give to green projects each year and can fund some projects for multiple years. The board’s decisions serve as guidance for the vice president of student affairs’ final approval. In its first set of allotments, the committee approved 20 out of 32 proposals it reviewed. Some proposals were amended by removing money intended to go to marketing efforts because the committee chose to market all

projects in house in order to brand them as Green Fund projects. A proposal to purchase 16 new recycle bins for the Arizona Student Unions at a total cost of $24,000 generated discussion about price and the ability to streamline recycling bins campus wide. In regard to creating campus consistency, Larry Jones, assistant director at Arizona Student Unions, said he has not seen a desire to unify recycling from other departments and said going green isn’t cheap. The proposed bins have been tested and are the small silver bins around campus. “I feel like we can do better,” said Green Fund Committee member Nicholas Theisen. “I think we can find a less expensive way.” While Chester Phillips, graduate assistant for sustainability and arid land resources graduate student,

applauded the committee for its efforts at the end of the hearing, though he said he wanted to see the public play a larger role. “I do not feel like there has been enough public input,” Phillips said. “It appears as though these items have been decided before the meeting.” The proposals fell into three categories and three incomplete proposals were stricken at the beginning of the meeting. The fund allocated money to five projects in the energy category, four in the water and garden category and 10 in the sustainability education category. While proposals were separated into groups, some projects had elements of multiple categories such as two approved proposals to install dashboard systems in residence halls, which would be used to track either utilities or solar energy.

One area of debate was on whether to fund the proposal “Sustainability Condoms.” The proposal includes plans to pass out condoms that have additional packaging with phrases about keeping green, using examples like remembering to turn off the lights. Committee member Peter Burns, a graduate student studying agricultural and resource economics, said he liked the awareness aspect of the project but did not like the idea of spending $900 on extra packaging that he said is likely to end up in a landfill. After some debate over the effectiveness of the message, the proposal passed 6-4.

Say it, don’t ‘gay’ it


Jennifer Hoefle, the program director for LGBTQ affairs , has been educating students in various classes about terminology that is considered offensive, including the phrase “that’s so gay.” Informing students of offensive terminology is a continual effort that launched during the “That’s So Gay” campaign last year, which explained how the phrase, and others such as “queer,” are misused and offend those who identified as gay, according to Jai Smith, a co-director of Pride Alliance and sociology senior. Smith said that terms like “gay” are often used in a derogatory manner, and that

the context of the word “cuts away” at individual identities. “Hearing negative remarks about something that people see as a part of their core being,” Smith said, “is something that can be devastating to a person’s psyche and selfinterpretation.” Kira Johnson, a co-director of Pride Alliance and junior majoring in English , explained how the phrase “that’s so gay” is constantly misused. “If someone says ‘Oh my gosh, her skirt is gay,’ it’s not gay. It’s just a really bad skirt,” Johnson said. “Does it like other skirts of the same sex?” She added that people need to choose their words carefully, and many other words could be used instead that do

not identify a certain group of people in a negative way. Smith and Johnson both said they usually speak up when they hear others use the phrase by explaining to people that it can be considered offensive. Rob Wolfset, a creative writing junior, said his best friend, who is gay, does not get offended by the phrase “that’s so gay,” but does take offense to the word “faggot.” The phrase, however, is still unnecessary and a different expression should be used instead, Wolfset said. Justin Rosenbaum, a criminal justice sophomore , also said he did not find the phrase offensive. “It’s hard to say (that you

No cancer, with a cherry on top protein produced by cells in the prostate gland. The goal is to recruit 30 male participants, Thompson said. Participants will be required to consume three cups of cherries per day for four weeks. “The hypothesis is that cherries and other red, blue pigmented fruits contain a compound called anthocyanins,” Thompson said. She said the sweet cherries are “a rich source of what we call a bioactive,” a compound that provides health benefits. Studies have shown that this compound has similar non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory

By Michelle Weiss ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Arizona Cancer Center garnered a $58,000 grant to determine whether sweet cherries can prevent prostate cancer. The study, funded by Northwest Cherries, a division of the Washington State Fruit Commission, would allow researchers to recruit men who may be at risk for prostate cancer, said Dr. Patricia Thompson, an assistant professor of public health. This includes men who have a family history of prostate cancer, being overweight or having a slightly elevated prostate-specific antigen, a

CHERRY continued from page 1 properties as ibuprofen and aspirin, she said. Anthocyanins have also displayed anti-cancerous properties. Thompson said the study would be used to identify men who already have an elevated inflammatory state so that it can be monitored. Specifically, researchers will be looking for prostaglandins, which are molecules that cause inflammation, she said. These are associated with cancer and cardiovascular risk. Thompson, the primary investigator of the study, will also be conducting the study with nutritional sciences graduate student Lindsey Diemert as a part of Diemert’s master’s thesis. Diemert said it is beneficial to be working with a whole food rather than a portion of it. “We’re going to make sure that when they’re eating the cherries, we’re seeing those anthocyanins within the system,” Diemert said. Procedures, such as urine sample collection, will be done to measure any inflammation of the prostate, Thompson said. They also want to find out how much anthocyanin passes through the

digestive tract and into the blood when eating fruits that contain the compound, like cherries. The compound only stays in the blood for six hours, which is why participants will be consuming cherries throughout the day to increase the levels of anthocyanins in the bloodstream. Participants will also have their blood drawn before and after the consumption of the sweet cherries during the study to see how much of the compound remains in the blood, she said. “Prostate cancer can be silent in terms of symptoms,” Thompson said. Prostatitis, which is an inflammation of the prostate gland, may or may not mean someone has cancer. Prostate cancer is picked up with routine screening of the prostate-specific antigen blood test, which is what clinicians look for, she said. A digital exam of the prostate will also be performed to see if there is any enlargement of the prostate. Clinicians will look for elevated PSAs and enlargement of the prostate gland, Thompson said. “It doesn’t necessarily have to present with symptoms,” she said, “and symptoms could be related to benign prostatitis.” Prostate cancer is associated with age and is common among men in their 30s and 40s, she said, but the underlying cause

is still unknown. African American men are more susceptible to getting prostate cancer at an earlier age, Thompson said. “It’s a pretty significant health problem in older men,” she said. The disease carries a tremendous amount of morbidity. For example, if someone has surgery, sexual dysfunction and bladder dysfunction can occur as a result, Thompson said. Diemert looks at the study as a valuable research opportunity in taking the next step toward prostate cancer prevention, she said. “From what we’ve seen in self-cultures and animal models, we do think it’s going to be beneficial,” she said. If the study proves to have positive effects, cherries will be recommended in order to aid men in the prevention of inflammatory diseases such as prostate cancer, Diemert said.

By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT ASUA is expected to support the drafted fee statement, which looks to garner student opinion more efficiently via survey vote, at Wednesday’s meeting. Sen. Jeff Adams drafted the senate’s statement of support, writing “the university currently does not have a consistent method for student consultation in the fee setting process, and the Associated Students of the University of Arizona fee statement outlines a fair and legitimate form of consulting students.” At the meeting, the Senate will also announce its search for an ASUA government affairs and policy director. The person would keep the president abreast of local and state politics and attend meetings such as those of the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and the Tucson City Council. ASUA government affairs and policy director would also be in charge of campaigning on local issues that impact UA students.

If you have a family history of prostate cancer or know someone who may be at risk for prostate cancer, call (520) 626-3138 to participate in the study.

With new treatment plans, patients suffering from mild asthma symptoms will no longer need to receive expensive daily treatments.

ASTHMA continued from page 1 medication every day, and when they skip a dose, it becomes less effective, Martinez said. Asthma medication is also very expensive. Approximately $40 billion is spent a year for asthma treatment, he said. Patients use either controller treatments, which are taken every day with or without symptoms present , or reliever treatments, used when a person has symptoms such as a tight chest, trouble exercising or coughing or wheezing, Martinez said. “Preventative inhalers are inhalers that are designed to keep inflammation in the lungs under control so that you don’t have flare-ups of your asthma,” Bajowala said. The reliever medication, Albuterol, is not designed as a daily treatment, Martinez said. Relievers loosen and relax the muscles so Your mobile source for UA news, sports and entertainment

that the airways can open up, Bajowala said. In the study, results showed that twice-a-day daily use of the controller medication was not necessary, Martinez said. The successful method combined the controller with the reliever only when symptoms are present. Instead of taking 720 doses per year, the participants only used one-third of that amount with the new combination method, he said. One concern parents have about the medication is that it can decrease the velocity in which a child grows, as some growth stunting has been shown when using the medication every day, Martinez said. But the study’s combination method showed no stunting in the growth of children aged six to 18 in the study, Martinez said. “The results are important because they show that if you use much lower doses, you can save a significant amount to the healthcare system,” Martinez said.

Other students such as Mary Allt, a pre-physiology freshman , said that she does not use the expression often because she knows that it could offend people. “People need to be careful in how they use it (the phrase “that’s so gay”), because some people say it’s alright and some people take offense to it,” she explained. The biggest problem behind the phrase, Smith said, is that people trivialize it because of the “new era” that we live in. “Students are still being slandered and verbally harassed,” Smith said, giving examples like the preachers on the UA Mall who he said spew hate speech towards the LGBTQ community. “As much as people don’t think that it (the phrase “that’s so gay”) adds to the pool of hate, every drop counts.”

ASUA candidates’ backgrounds demonstrate real diversity


t’s a rare occasion when ASUA is talked about in a tone that is free of mockery or apathy. The only people who seem to be trusting of the UA student government’s ability to do anything right are the people in it. Everyone else is either caught up in criticizing the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, or too busy not giving a damn. After all, why should anyone care about an organization that claims to represent tens of thousands of voices but can only offer a narrow, limited perspective? Just a small fraction of UA students want to participate in ASUA or vote in its elections. Every year — and this year especially — it feels like every ASUA senator is a white, pre-business sophomore who wants to connect with Greek Life in order to improve representation of students, pursue diversity initiatives and increase transparency. Too many years of relying on these buzzwords have caused ASUA representatives to appear massproduced and unoriginal. Key words like “diversity,” “representation” and “accountability” have lost much of their meaning because ASUA candidates often use those words without having any understanding of them. Because of this, regardless of representatives’ individual performances, ASUA as a whole too frequently fails to connect to the people it seeks to serve. This is why this year’s ASUA candidates deserve to be praised. Few previous groups of candidates have had such a wide range of personal backgrounds and life experiences. Take, for example, Marielos Castro, a freshman studying public health and running for ASUA Senate. Castro, whose platform is based on increasing students’ accessibility to financial aid, is a firstgeneration college student whose campaign was inspired by her search for financial support after her acceptance to the UA. There’s Carlita Cotton, an anthropology junior. Cotton is 39 years old, and a transfer student from Mesa Community College. Based on her own transfer experience, she’s running with the intent to create a more efficient, effective transfer orientation program, which would partner transfer students with current UA students in a two-week buddy system. There’s also Robert Rosinski, a 25-year-old civil engineering sophomore. In his candidate statement, Rosinski, a veteran, credits the Air Force for teaching him the value of “Service Before Self,” and his candidacy is built on a background as a veteran, father and small-business owner. These are only three examples of how far ASUA candidates have come. The notion of “diversity” should never be defined strictly in terms of race or ethnicity. Diversity doesn’t have to look like a United Colors of Benetton ad, or a picture in a brochure of a black man, a Hispanic woman, their white friend and an Asian thrown in for good measure. Real diversity comes from a full spectrum of perspectives, and color is hardly the end-all, be-all deciding factor in what kind of perspective people can bring to the table. Rather, students should seek diversity in all forms. Entrusting 10 kids with the concerns of nearly 40,000 means seeking the widest range of personal experiences possible. And improbably, this time around, ASUA seems to have gotten the memo. The most recent crop of senatorial and executive candidates is truly made up of all sorts. The diversity encompasses ideological, age, experience, racial and ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, and just plain life-view differences. Whoever wins, next year’s ASUA will be one to watch, as student government at the UA strives more than it has in a long time to truly represent the student body.

Having it all: fortune, fame, babies Caroline Nachazel Arizona Daily Wildcat


he positive sign on a Clearblue used to bring fear, insecurity and nausea to unexpectedly expecting mothers. However, thanks to MTV’s “Teen Mom,” that same sign now generates thoughts of possible fame and fortune to new young moms. After the 2008 scandal at a Massachusetts high school where 17 girls made a pact to get pregnant and raise their babies together, it would be logical to assume that pregnancy scandals are “so three years ago.” But apparently, this country cannot get enough of teen pregnancy. Yes, the young mothers on MTV face the problems of any mom struggling to work, breathe and rock the crib, but they also have the thousands of dollars waiting for them in the bank at the end of a season. Although statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have shown a decline in teen pregnancy rates, pop culture remains fascinated with babies having babies. While flipping through the pages of Us Weekly, In Touch

and People, it’s hard to avoid the faces of the extremely classy “Teen Mom” stars. Pictures of the moms at the grocery store, the park and WalMart with the headline, “Stars: they’re just like us!” stare me down from across a two-page spread. They are moms; I am so glad to know they go to grocery stores and actually do “mom” things. Following these fascinating photos is a story about how three friends of Jenelle Evans, mother of Jace from season two, are now pregnant with hopes of getting their own spin-off show. Is this “The Hills?” No, this is real life, and, sadly, reality television is trying to get girls pregnant. Bizarre and obnoxious are the only two words that can be used to describe the fact that paparazzi follow these girls around simply because they got pregnant before they graduated high school. Sadly, it really is the only reason that the girls have fame and fortune. They are not outrageously beautiful, talented whatsoever or accomplished in anything

other than passing a pregnancy test. MTV’s hit show is the baby boom of our decade. Despite the fact that it is rewarding sexually active young girls, it is an interesting show. Everyone loves engaging in a mindless 60 minutes of other people’s lives that suck, and with more than 2.8 million viewers a week, according to the New York Post, season three is in the making. That means more moms and more babies. The media attention given to these mothers is absurd. It would be fine if the show ended and people moved on to making claims that Snooki and Pauly D are inspiring people to get tans, but unfortunately viewers and fans are stuck on the baby mama drama. “Teen Mom” has unintentionally influenced the way Americans view teen pregnancy. The spotlighted moms have become public figures because of their baby bumps, giving them the 15 minutes of fame that every American citizen secretly envies. At the end of the day, they are mothers with no sleep, crying children and pothead boyfriends, yet somehow our country is obsessed. — Caroline Nachazel is a sophomore studying journalism and communication.

s most of you know, Nov. 2, 2010 was the day that a very, very red wave swept the political landscape. Here in Arizona, Democrats held 12 of 30 state Senate seats and 25 of 60 state House seats prior to the election. After the election, however, their numbers dwindled to nine Senate seats and 20 House seats. Republicans had healthy majorities before the election, and then gained effective supermajority status afterwards. And with Gov. Jan Brewer winning the governorship in her own right, Republicans can do just about anything they want. These are the types of majorities that enable swift action in order to fix a state’s problems, the kind of majorities that make even the 2008 session of the United States Congress green with envy. But one tiny problem has reared its head with this state Legislature. And that is an appearance of extremely polarizing and partisan politics. Now, what are they doing that would be deemed distressing? Last Thursday, the state Senate voted to create another special license plate. This time it sports a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag in support of none other than the Tea Party. Great, right? Now you can go around and let everybody know that you are a verifiable supporter of smaller

government. The issue, though, is the fact that proceeds from the purchase of such a special plate would go to Tea Party groups. Again, you may not mind, but consider the flipside, as if you lived in a heavily democratic state. Imagine yourself in Massachusetts. You live in one of only four state senate districts represented by a Republican (a whopping 10 percent of the state) and you feel like you are being suffocated by the color blue. Suppose the Massachusetts Legislature moves, unopposed of course, to designate a new state license plate declaring “I Heart Abortions” with proceeds of its purchase going to groups like Planned Parenthood. You are outraged and in utter shock over the fact that a government entity is openly supporting and funding such a controversial group. Again, the majority of the state arguably supports a woman’s right to choose, and, by extension, groups that provide abortion services. But does that mean the license plate move is right? Then go back to the Wild West state of Arizona, where a majority of the population either belongs to a Tea Party group, or affiliates itself with conservative, government-limiting causes. There are still some in the state that do not want their Legislature exercising their power in such an

openly partisan manner (yes, Maricopa County, there is a more liberallyminded municipality to the south of you with such views). And besides, you guys do know that there are plenty of bumper stickers that are equally effective at professing your small government spirit, right? Now, many of you are using this license plate as more fuel for your state Legislature-bashing fire. This is more of an issue of image than an issue of substance. Yes, designating the Colt single-action Army revolver as the state firearm is not very substantive, but the folks up in Phoenix are busier than you think. Simply taking a look at the official schedule of the state House or Senate will make it clear that all sorts of committees are considering bills put forth by senators and representatives. Just because something of significance has not quite made it to the floor for a final vote does not mean that legislators are not busy. You may not agree with anything the Republicans are doing up in Phoenix, but know that they are not just twiddling their thumbs. But, as a word of caution to the GOP, in the minds of most people, liberal and conservative, divisive license plates pretty much equate to thumbtwiddling. Take a hint from the public reaction after national Democrats used their massive majorities to perpetrate the biggest government overreach in recent memory (aka Obamacare) — abuse of power leads to loss of power.

Behind the scenes, six senators work to tackle the national debt McClatchy Tribune WASHINGTON — While the ugly public fight in Congress over how to keep the government funded for the next few months is getting all the attention, behind the scenes a bipartisan effort to craft a long-term path to fiscal stability is proceeding slowly and quietly. The immediate struggle to make spending cuts for fiscal 2011, which runs through Sept. 30, is getting most of the publicity amid fears that a partisan stalemate may lead to a government shutdown. The government will run out of money on March 18 unless a fiscal 2011 spending plan is adopted. Two Senate votes Wednesday are both expected to fail to resolve the issue, which will require high-level negotiations next week. However, the short-term funding fight is simple compared to the real budget challenge, which is stark: The government borrows almost 40 cents of every dollar it spends. The White House projects a record $1.65 trillion deficit this fiscal year, and $7.2 trillion in deficits over the next 10 years. President Barack Obama’s budget for fiscal 2012 would leave the government $26.35 trillion in debt after the next decade, up $12.8 trillion from last year. All the debt the nation ran up in history totaled only $5.6 trillion at the end of fiscal 2000. The immediate fight over short-term government funding “doesn’t deal with the real problem,” said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D. “Debt is the threat.” Unless major changes are made soon to federal tax and spending laws, “interest costs for


Google donates $2.5 million LOS ANGELES — Google Inc. said Tuesday that it is giving $2.5 million in the form of two equal grants to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre to preserve, and get online, thousands of pages of historical documents relating to South Africa’s movement from apartheid to democracy. “As one of the most influential leaders of our time, and the face of South Africa’s incredible transi-

tion to democracy, Nelson Mandela’s name is almost synonymous with efforts to create meaningful dialogue and promote social justice,” wrote Google’s Daniel Lederman and Julie Taylor in a blog post announcing the grants.

everything will rise, and rise rapidly,” said Erskine Bowles, co-chairman of the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. That will make it harder to buy homes or cars, or to expand a business, or to reduce unemployment. In December, Bowles’ commission outlined how to reduce deficits by $4 trillion over 10 years. Neither Obama nor lawmakers from either party have agreed so far to go along with its plan. The chief hope for long-term debt reduction now rests with six senators, three from each party, who have been meeting privately once or twice a week. Leading the Senate effort are four commission members who backed its final report: Democrats Conrad and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Republicans Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Mike Crapo of Idaho. Also involved are Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga. They are liaisons to a broader group of about 25 senators who’ve signaled interest in joining a serious bipartisan plan. Some of them dined Monday at a Capitol Hill steakhouse with Bowles and his commission co-chairman, Alan Simpson. The group is trying to build on the commission’s blueprint. They hope to propose a sweeping debt-reduction package of legislation this spring, and they hope that the Obama administration, which has supported their talks, will step in then and push for a big deal. “I don’t know yet how this will play out,” Conrad said. “First we have to demonstrate there’s resolve for a bipartisan group to come together.”

US officials cautious on military intervention in Libya McClatchy Tribune WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is drawing careful limits on its potential military involvement in the increasingly bloody struggle between the Libyan government and rebel forces, despite growing calls for Western intervention. Administration officials, while stepping up efforts to help refugees fleeing Libya, say they will provide only secondary military aid to the rebels, such as electronic jamming of government communications, unless an increase in civilian killings by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s forces prompts an international consensus for stronger steps. Even then, officials say, they would prefer the U.S. play a supporting role in an international military coalition. This reticence has placed the U.S. in the position of doing little more than old-fashioned saber rattling, intended to show the Gadhafi govern-

ment that Washington still could take military action. The Pentagon has moved two ships near Libya and, on Monday, NATO increased the number of flights by its AWACS surveillance planes that track flights of military planes. But the U.S. has repeatedly downplayed the possibility of a no-fly zone, which the rebels have implored the West to institute to prevent air attacks against them. U.S. officials acknowledge that Gadhafi’s air force could be an important factor in the war but add that, up to now, he hasn’t been using it for intense attacks on civilians. The cautious approach reflects the view that another American-led invasion of an Arab state would dangerously deepen the antagonism between the U.S. and the Muslim world. Many senior administration officials, at the Pentagon and elsewhere, are also worried about plunging into what could be a protracted civil war when the U.S. military is overstretched in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Q: Dear Advisor: Is there a deadline to change my major or to add a minor? ~Trying To Be Timely A: Dear Trying To Be Timely: Many majors and minors cannot be declared during the priority registration period, and typically students who have not already declared do not have priority to register for major or minor classes. Priority registration for fall 2011 is March 21 – April 24, so the deadline to declare many majors and minors is March 18. To find out the rules about declaring the major or minor you are considering, check the Advising Resource Center website (; select the link for “Academic Advising Contacts & Info.” Contact the academic advisor listed to schedule a meeting. Please keep in mind that advisor’s schedules are very busy so plan to schedule as far in advance as possible to get an appointment. Some advisors will have appointments available during spring break. Certain majors can be declared only by first attending an information session; that information is available on the ARC website. Many minors can be declared without meeting with an advisor in the minor department, so be sure to ask when you contact the advising office. In these instances, your major advisor could declare the minor for you. Information about each major is available on the major department’s website, and you can formulate your questions for the advisor by reviewing the information on the website prior to your meeting. Be sure to log into UAccess and print your Academic Advisement Report in PDF format and bring it with you to your appointment since the advisor will need to review it before declaring you in the new major. If you miss the deadline to declare the major or minor before priority registration, schedule an appointment late in the semester so you can declare the new major before next semester. Again, refer to the department website of the major you would like to add so you are aware of the courses required for the new program. You might be able to add some major or minor courses after priority registration is over if there are seats available, so keep checking the Schedule of Classes frequently up until the fall semester begins. Best of luck with your new program of study and priority registration. ********* Reminder: A table identifying the new (and old) Tier I course numbers is available on the Advising Resource Center website (

Argument over Halo becomes physical

Two male UA students fighting over a game of Halo were arrested for the brawl on March 6 at 11 p.m. UAPD officers responded to Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall after being contacted by the resident assistant about a fight that had occurred. One of the students was waiting with the RA in the lobby when the officers arrived. Although battered with several red marks and a flushed complexion, the student refused medical attention. The student told the officers that the other combatant, his roommate, was still in their room. An officer remained with the student in the lobby while the other officer went upstairs to meet with his roommate. Until the officers arrived, the roommate was trying to calm down by lying on his bed. The roommate allowed the officer to enter the room and spoke about the fight. The original student and a friend had been playing Halo in the room when the student made a stupid move in-game and the friend and roommate began talking “smack.” After a while, the “smack talk” escalated to arguing and then to personal attacks. Immediately after the roommate made a disparaging comment about the student’s sister, the fight became physical. The roommate told the officer that two began shoving each other before he punched the student above the left eye with a closed fist. The two grappled with each other and fell across a table, breaking it. The student then put the roommate into a headlock. After wrestling for some time, the two separated and the student left the room and went to the lobby. The original student’s statement confirmed the mutual combat; however, he did not remember there being any punches thrown. The officer arrested both roommates for disorderly conduct and criminal damage. Both students were booked into Pima County Jail.

Bike found without being reported missing

A female UA student’s bicycle stolen in October 2010 was found near the Main Library late March 6. A University of Arizona Police Department officer found an unsecured bike on the bike racks north of the Main Library. A records check on the bike did not show it as stolen, but the officer continued to check the bike. On the bottom of the bike frame, the officer found two printed telephone numbers. The officer called the numbers and made contact with the female UA student. The student’s bike was stolen in October 2010 from the Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority house but she never reported the theft to UAPD. She described the bike very similarly to the beach cruiser in the officer’s possession and she verified both phone numbers on the bottom of the bike. The officer then verified that the student still had the key to the U-lock in the bicycle’s front basket. The officer arranged to meet with the student to verify possession of the bicycle, which could be claimed at UAPD. No clues or witnesses as to who stole the bike were found.

Student lashes out at Faith Christian Church

A male UA student lashed out through text message at a campus minister on March 6 at 3:30 p.m. A Faith Christian Church campus minister contacted UAPD to report the threatening text message. “That’s the last straw. I’m gonna fuck your life up,” the student wrote in the text message to the minister. The minister had contacted him in order to arrange a ride for the student to go to church services. Last semester, the student had attended services and several bible study sessions with the minister. On the morning of March 6, the minister made contact with the student to arrange a ride for him. The student said that he could not attend services because he was at his friend’s grandparents’ house. The minister said he believed the student was lying and sent a text message to his supervisor at the church. After sending the message, the minister realized that he accidentally sent it to the student and not his supervisor. In response, the student sent the threatening text message. To apologize, the minister called the student; however the student threatened him, saying that his father was an FBI agent. The minister did not want to pursue charges, but said that the student was no longer welcome at Faith Christian Church. When the officer made contact with the student, he said “I wasn’t really feeling that church or (the minister).” Comparing the minister to a salesperson, the student said he was disconnected and felt pressured to engage in church activities. The officer said that the student should have told the minister that he was uncomfortable rather than sending the threatening message. The student agreed that his actions were extreme. The officer filled out a Dean of Students Office code of conduct referral form for the student.

The Wild West gets Steampunk’d


magine a world without electricity, where Ben Franklin never messed around with keys and kites and Albert Einstein never made it past his position as a patent clerk. Take Victorian sensibility, add mad-scientist speculation and then inject a bit of sci-fi. Welcome to a world run with gears and steam, where the fashionable travel in zeppelins and brass is the go-to metal. Welcome to the world that is steampunk. Steampunk is an artistic movement that spans art,


fashion, film, literature and even technology. It combines the scientific romanticism of the Victorian era with our actual reality and imagined future. The movement has gained fame since the messy 1999 Will Smith joyride, “Wild Wild West,” and this weekend Steampunk stampeded into the real West. Enter Wild Wild West Con. From March 4 to March 6, Old Tucson Studios was converted into the Mecca for steampunk fans and vendors alike. On the first day, some 1,100 visitors

streamed through the entrances, visiting the 40+ vendor booths, the handful of lectures and the amazing exhibits. My personal favorite: The League of STEAM — a 19th century steampunk zombie fighting posse. “Some even came from as far as New Zealand,” said Robert Levin, the vice president of Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention and Festival at Old Tucson Studios, as he wiped a handkerchief below his British pith helmet. What surprised me was the average age of the

steampunkers. Here I thought the Con would be swarming with our generation, perhaps some emo kids. Wrong. Most of the men had long, flowing beards. The average age of the women appeared to be over 30. Grandmas that might otherwise have been home baking cookies strolled along in petticoats with lace parasols shading them from the Arizona sun. Bold were those who wore layers — oh my Lord, it was scorching.

Wholesome ‘Yonkers’ stifled by excessive banter By Kim Kotel ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Aside from planting “Lost in Yonkers” in a New York town whose name sounds fake (it’s not), Neil Simon’s Pulitzer Prizewinning play grapples with very real and gritty truths concerning loss, maturation, responsibility and how deep familial ties really reach. While World War II rages overseas, brothers Arty (Maxx Carlisle-King), 13, and Jay (Ryan DeLuca), 15, face their own battles. The boys are forced to live amid the wrath of Grandma Kurnitz (Judy Kaye), a German immigrant who may be made of steel, and Aunt Bella (Kate Goehring), an endearing but nevertheless loose cannon, for one year. Their father, Eddie (Spencer Rowe), sets out for the south as a traveling salesman, selling scrap metal to pay off debts he incurred from his late wife’s medical expenses. The first half of the play focuses on the seemingly banal occurrences that ultimately shape the boys’ viewpoints. Evasive, jocular, and a little bit dangerous, Uncle Louie (Preston Maybank) shows up in the dead of night with a gun strapped to his side; Aunt Bella visits the movie theater a little too often and stays a little too late — much to Grandma Kurnitz’s dismay; Arty and Jay find out Grandma Kurnitz has a nest egg hidden somewhere in the apartment worth much more than their father’s debt. These partly mulled-over moments build with a silent, steady speed until they surround the family in

Festival to draw 400+ authors, large crowds By Steven Kwan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Instead of winding down for spring break, the UA is preparing to host the Tucson Festival of Books, an event celebrating reading and literacy in Southern Arizona. The family-friendly festival returns for its third year at the UA campus this Saturday and Sunday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission and parking are free. “We all wanted to do a large event in Tucson that would really help focus and maybe even help solve some of our literacy and education issues here,” said Brenda Viner, a co-founder and organizer of the festival. “It has caught fire. It has been an amazing process and an amazing partnership of government agencies and private business and the University of Arizona.” This collaboration will bring in more than 400 authors and poets at this year’s event to participate in panel discussions, settle down for

book signings and give workshops. Workshops cover broad range of topics for authors such as “Forensics and Firearms,” finding

an agent and learning how to write in a certain genre. All workshops are free and require no registration. Authors scheduled to appear

range from Robert Crais (Elvis Cole novels) and Brad Meltzer (“The Inner Circle”) to Louis Sachar (“Sideways Stories from Wayside School,” “Holes”). “From both festivals, one of my favorite moments was seeing everybody show up,” said Helene Woodhams, co-chair of the festival’s authors committee and literary-arts librarian for Pima County Library. “It’s wonderful how big this is and how it really speaks to the fact that Tucson is a book community.” An estimated 70,000 to 80,000 attendees flocked to the UA Mall and campus last year, which made the event the fourth largest book festival in the U.S., according to the Tucson Festival of Books website. To date, the nonprofit Tucson Festival of Books Foundation has raised a total of $350,000 from the event to benefit literacy organizations in Southern Arizona. New features this year include: The Twitter wall — you can see what guests, authors, organizers and volunteers are tweeting about

the event. The E-Reader Experience — visitors can test out the Nook, iPad and other reading devices.

Q&A Ne-Yo, aliens coming to theaters By Remy Albillar ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

R&B superstar Ne-Yo will be making his third movie appearance in the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster “Battle: Los Angeles.� Not satisfied with topping Billboard charts, Ne-Yo seeks to follow in the footsteps of such varied performers as 50 Cent, DMX, LL Cool J, The Game and Mos Def. Wildlife had a chance to interview the performer about his music influences and experiences with the film: Who were your musical influences and who in your life influenced you musically? I grew up listening to a lot of soul music and Marvin Gaye, all Motown and all of that. My mother was a woman who was into a lot of things. She started listening to Big Band Sound, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra and all that. It was all about the melody for her. She said if there was a melody she could relate to it. My mom was my hero, so anything she liked. As far as my musical influences, I always call it “my four�: Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr., Prince and Stevie Wonder. How did you prepare for your role as a marine in “Battle: LA�? I didn’t have to do much self-preparation. The people

A rowdydow amid recession


“Everything crumbles so quickly,â€? said Flogging Molly’s mandolin/banjo champ Bob Schmidt while recovering from a set at bandleader Dave King’s Detroit home. During 14 years of tours through America and beyond, the Irish punk outfit has witnessed social and urban decay firsthand. “Detroit inspired a lot of what the songs on our new album (Speed of Darkness) are about ‌ the title is kind of a metaphor for how quickly things can go wrong, but it’s also a metaphor for how quickly things can go right again.â€? The seven members of Flogging Molly have recently embarked on their seventh annual Green 17 tour — an international sojourn that counts down to St. Patrick’s Day by fostering drunken revelry in every city big enough to hold them. This year, Tempe is lucky enough to host the hooligans for a memorable March 17 celebration. “Tempe must have the largest secret Irish population in the country,â€? Schmidt laughed. “Arizona is not known for their Irish, but they certainly come out for St. Patrick’s Day.â€? The set promises cuts from Flogging Molly’s forthcoming

fifth album, but fans can expect no shortage of classic hits. Schmidt recalled a memorable performance of the crowd-rousing memorial ballad, “If I Ever Leave This World Alive.� “We played it last year in Texas at an open-air barbecue joint with an outdoor stage, maybe four blocks off the main strip in Austin. We had a friend who was playing a show on the same night, and he said that he could hear our crowd singing that song from his show inside, four-and-a-half blocks away.� This particular Green 17 tour represents a twofold celebration for Flogging Molly: the band is also counting down to the May 31 release of Speed of Darkness.



who did the movie did it all for us. We trained with actual marines for three weeks. We had a gunnery sergeant and a sergeant major there. They treated us like we were real marines trying to become marines in boot camp. It was a little difficult, to say the least, waking up at 5 a.m. every morning, jogging four or five miles every day. It was worth it. We can see now we look like actual marines. That was our goal: that a seasoned marine could go to see this and say, “They know what they are doing.� What about the script made you choose to do the role? If you look at the script and took it seriously, I could see how it would definitely make a person think. I don’t think aliens are going to come take us out any time, but one lesson to learn is you shouldn’t put anything off till tomorrow. You never know what’s going to happen. How did Director Jonathan Liebesman work with you to create a natural performance with the CGI experience? Jonathan Liebesman is a slave driver. He is very, very much a perfectionist. He was that kind of guy that would push and push and push until you wanted to punch him in the face, but the result was the best possible performance. I am still very much a novice actor, so for me to act terrified of something that’s not actually there, it was difficult. A lot of the seasoned actors, Michelle Rodriguez, they helped me out.

By Dallas Williamson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It’s the end of an era, and a performance art giant will heave one of its final breaths in Tucson. On Saturday, UApresents audiences have the extraordinary opportunity to witness one of the final performances of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, one of the most influential and groundbreaking companies of its time. The company, which was founded by master choreographer Merce Cunningham in 1953, will stop in Tucson on its two-year “Legacy Tour.� Showcasing 18 of Cunningham’s most influential works, the Legacy Tour will be the final opportunity for audiences to see Cunningham’s original creations performed by the last dancers he personally trained. After its final performance in New York City on Dec. 31, the company will officially disband. Cunningham, whose 70-year career ended with his passing in 2009, was a trailblazer of the American avant-garde movement in the 1970s. An illustrious thinker and mover, Cunningham’s innovative and exploratory approach to dancing pushed

Doug Nielsen, a professor of modern dance in UA’s School of Dance, personally trained with Cunningham and disciples Gus Solomons Jr. and Viola Farber from 1975 through 1985. Nielsen is enthusiastic about his students experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “Merce (Cunningham), Gus (Solomons Jr.) and Viola (Farber) influenced my methodology in teaching and choreography by allowing chance and spontaneity to free my imagination, particularly in regard to structure, sequencing and the relationship to music,� Nielsen said. Whether you dance or not, the Legacy Tour is poised to redefine the way audiences think about performance art. According to Nielsen, “Cunningham’s method of allowing dance, music and setting to maintain a respectable independence in performance was a radical way of thinking that is still relevant today.�

You don’t need to leave T-town to relax your stressed soul. Here’s how to chill on the cheap.

Pool-hop at Tucson’s resorts

it when it turns into Arizona 77 and exit at Milepost 81. It costs $7 a vehicle. — Jazmine Woodberry

As perennially broke college students, we rarely get to take advantage of Tucson’s world-famous luxury resorts. But as grungy as this town is, it’s home to a treasure trove of posh, beautiful resorts, complete with glittery pools and shiny pool boys. This spring break, hearken back to your high school hooligan days and “borrow” some resort pool time. If you walk confidently and look bangin’ in a bathing suit you may be able to avoid detection for an hour or so of poolside bliss. The worst anyone’s going to do is kick you out, and there’s bound to be another resort just a short drive away. — Heather Price-Wright

Walk, talk with the animals

Who does not like to feed giraffes and visit Shombay and Kaya the lions? Get in touch with your childlike side or try it out as a first date — it says, “Hey, I’m easy going and like to have fun whilst broadening my horizons about wildlife.” Find it at 1100 S. Randolph Way. It’s open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. $7 per person. Call 7914022 for more information. — Kim Kotel

Old Spanish Trail and take a tour of the Colossal Cave Mountain Park. Whether you feel adventurous or romantic, the park has a variety of tours to match your interests. — Dallas Williamson

After almost being developed into a residential area, the more than 5,000-square foot park attracts 170,000 visitors a year and for good reason.

“Grey’s Anatomy”

Drink every time a pager goes off. Drink every time they show an establishing shot of the Space Needle or reference Seattle. Drink every time the characters drink — and twice if it’s Chief Webber. Take a shot whenever characters have sex in the on-call room. — Miranda Butler

“Modern Family”

Take a drink every time Claire and Phil have a problem communicating. Take a drink every time Gloria butchers an idiomatic expression. Take a shot (you’ll need it) every time Haley makes you feel gross for being so into a high school girl. Take two shots for every sweet but unbelievable plot resolution. If Cam appears in a costume, finish the bottle. — Heather Price-Wright

“The Bachelor”

Take a drink whenever one of the girls starts to cry. Take a shot every time Brad takes a deep breath and says that he doesn’t

want to hurt anyone, or that he has such a hard decision to make. Chug a beer whenever there is a melodramatic one-onone conversation about finding love on national television. — Dallas Williamson

Southwest Road Trips

Spring break with your parents

Channel our ancestors and take a trek through the American Southwest.

There’s a fine line between childhood and adulthood. Milk both sides with the ‘rents this week.

Define ‘The Thing’

Landmark. The only problem with this road trip is how disappointed you’ll be not to live in Austin when it’s inevitably time to leave. — Heather Price-Wright

In the wasteland between Tucson and New Mexico lies a legend. It’s not ancient. It’s not impressive. But it is … a thing. Take a day trip to Exit 322 on Interstate 10 and demystify this piece of rest stop lore, then grab some Dairy Queen. — Brandon Specktor

Discover Hi Jolly’s Tomb

There’s nothing like driving to Quartzsite to visit the tomb of a Confederate mercantile camel pilot. With a shipment of 70 animals across the desert came Hadji Ali (codename Hi Jolly), a Syrian caretaker. Arizona Highways christened the site of his last camp and now you can waste a day learning about history and getting out of Tucson. Take the interstate to Exit 17, about half-mile east on Business 10, then turn north at the Hi Jolly Tomb sign. If you pass a flea market and a throng of people inexplicably enthusiastic about camels, you’re in the right place. — Jazmine Woodberry

Buy food from a truck

The food truck industries in Tucson and Phoenix are still growing, so it would be more worthwhile to head to Los Angeles. In the City of Angels, you can find heavenly mobile restaurants such as The Buttermilk Truck, which serves breakfast items based on its namesake, or The Grilled Cheese Truck, which creates all types of savory and sweet grilled cheese sandwiches. — Steven Kwan

Leave your heart in Austin

If you have the time and patience to cross the interminable wasteland that is western Texas, head to Austin, the Lone Star state’s lone bastion of hippy-dippy cool. It’s like Tucson, only better. Spend some time on Sixth Street, the city’s nightlife center and home to a smorgasbord of bars and clubs. Or, if you’re more of a history buff, visit the Texas State Capitol, a weirdly giant, cupolaed building and a National Historic

Be in four states

Pull “A Walk to Remember” and be in more places than one. But do it better than Mandy Moore. Travel to the Four Corners — the only point where 4 U.S. states meet. Put one arm in New Mexico, the other in Colorado, and keep your feet in Arizona and Utah. — Dallas Williamson

Order a Keepsake! Changing face

Wicked awesome

Stoops vows to change behavior on sideline after harsh criticism.

Act like an adult

For some of us, it’s easy to slide into our high school selves when we are home with our parents. Resist. Show them that you’ve changed for the better during your time away at college. (This rule applies even if you still live at home while in college.) — Steven Kwan

Drink with ‘em!

Are you in that awkward and nebulous phase where your parents are becoming your “friends”? Take advantage of the oldest spring break tradition there is and have a drink or four. As long as you can hold your liquor well enough not to act like a complete ass, sharing a few drinks with your parents might be just the bonding opportunity you all need. Plus, tipsy moms tend to be awesome. — Heather Price-Wright

Eat out

Sure, it’s nice when your mom bakes a home-cooked meal, but don’t forget the luxury of dinner at a nice restaurant. As college students, expensive restaurants are oftentimes out of the question. So suggest going out to your favorite fancy dinner with the family. Your parents will appreciate the quality time, and since

they’re sure to foot the bill, you’ll get a $30 meal for free. — Miranda Butler

Either come home before they’re in bed or sleep somewhere else

This will, indeed, keep the peace. No more cranky parents when they wake up to your stumbling ass at 3 a.m., or crazy parents when they think you’ve been abducted sometime during your night on the town. Happy parents, happy you. — Kim Kotel

Tag along

When your mom heads to the grocery store, tag along. Load up on those goodies that you can’t afford because you spent all of your money on alcohol. Oh, and make sure you buy extra to take back to school. — Dallas Williamson

Use information as a weapon

The next the ‘rents get all up in your grill asking about your personal life and plans for the future, treat them to a really detailed description of your last party “hook up” encounter. They’ll probably stop asking. — Remy Albillar

‘Möda’ operandi: Crazy for a cause Photos by Ginny Polin ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT


his Sunday, the eighth annual Möda Provocateur fashion show was held in the SUMC ballroom. Students, professional models and local salons gathered to make up, dress up and strut their stuff to raise funds for the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation. According to Möda’s website, the Udall Law Firm-sponsored event has raised more than $250,000 since its 2004 debut.



Whether you’re relaxing by the pool or literally walking down the beach, this song can set the perfect spring break mood. It’s carefree and classic, and sure to remind us of those good ol’ days in junior high. Admit it: you know you remember the words. And your friends are sure to appreciate the nostalgic touch. — Miranda Butler

‘I Was Born (A Unicorn)’ The Unicorns


I mean, who doesn’t love mystical creatures? That’s what spring break is all about, right? The Unicorns create a free, playful and overall happy sound that embraces the spirit of spring break. — Kellie Mejdrich


Brazilian Girls


This song is so fun, swingy and full of bright horn parts, you’ll hardly notice the hilariously obscene chorus. Sung by what sounds like a full choir dancing in the sunshine, it simply goes, “Pussy pussy pussy marijuana / Pussy pussy pussy.” And let’s be honest — what is anyone looking for over spring break if not those two things? Beyond that, it’s a delightfully listenable song, perfect for turning up loud and belting with friends. — Heather Price-Wright

‘On the Road Again’ Various Artists


No song in American folk music better embodies the allure of the highway. Listen to Willie Nelson for a classic, Bob Dylan for some badassness, or Katie Melua for some schnaz. — Kim Kotel

‘Ice Ice Baby’ Vanilla Ice


If you get too hot from lying out by the pool for hours at a time, you can always count on Vanilla Ice to cool you down. Not only does he play “a dope melody,” but you can’t go wrong singing along to lyrics like “I’m cooking emcees like a pound of bacon.”

Pop in your earbuds or crank up your car stereo and see if you can rap the whole song. Word to your mother. — Dallas Williamson

‘Roller Coaster’ Blink 182


Most of us could probably agree that spring break is every college student’s “favorite ride.” While you’re “breathing deeply” and “walking backward” in Havasu, Mexico or somewhere more exotic, remember how different you are compared to when you thought Blink 182 was a cool band. — Remy Albillar

‘Keep the Car Running’ Arcade Fire


Thanks to this year’s Grammy show, the U.S. public now knows who the Arcade Fire is, so it’s a good time to explore the band’s catalog. Singer Win Butler conveys a sense of restlessness and unease with city life, and, combined with its driving beat, this song makes you feel as if you need to leave. Right. Now. — Steven Kwan

‘Tea for Two’

Blossom Dearie


Blossom Dearie’s version of this song, which comes from the 1925 musical, “No, No, Nanette,” sounds warm, relaxed and intimate, as if nothing else in the world matters except you and her. The song feels like home — perfect regardless of where you are. — Steven Kwan

The hook-up


What does it mean? Who’s doing it? And why isn’t it happening to me? By Remy Albillar Arizona Daily Wildcat Sadly, I’m out of touch with the kids these days. I just found out who Arcade Fire is and I don’t even know where the big parties are anymore. As I, senior year dinosaur, tromp my way across campus to my literature classes, I can’t help but overhear all this new fangled lingo that freshmen keep learning from the Kanye Twitter. “Naw, dude, we just hooked up.” “Karen hooked up with Tony last night? Isn’t he a virgin?” “We just made out. I didn’t feel like hooking up last night.” “Hook up.” Apparently this mystery term is being used to describe a variety of interaction between two people (sometimes three). But as far as cultural phenomena in terminology go, there seemed to be an apparent gap in consensus about its appropriate and apparent use. Thus, I deemed an investigation necessary and took it to the streets. Remy Albillar: How do you define “hooking up”? Luke Undhjem (undeclared freshman): “Anything, even like just making out with someone you’re not dating. A one-night thing. Any kind of sexual activity.” Ry Baxter (undeclared freshman): “Kinda depends. It used to mean ‘just kissing,’ for me.” Cassia Griswold (pre-pharmacy sophomore): “A one-time encounter with no commitment and no expectations. I don’t know. It depends

STEAMPUNK continued from page 7 Pass slung around my neck, I plunged into the heart of the event, sweaty but pleased. On my head perched the oh-so-necessary goggles upon a top hat. I felt stifled in a excessively buttoned Victorian dress with a velvet bustle and a leather waist cincher. I have never felt so hot and I have never fit in so seamlessly with a crowd. And to think I used to laugh at Dungeons & Dragons zealots. Undoubtedly, the most striking element of steampunk is the elaborate costumes. It’s not just the period attire. Like any fashionista will tell you, it’s all about the accessories: monocles, brass armpieces and low-slung gun holsters. Gotta have it. Among the rough-and-tumble gunslinger punks were Andrew Fischer and Gacinda Johnston, both seniors at the UA. As a costume design major, Johnston was a resident expert on steampunk dress. She has been a fan of the movement for several years, starting back when it was more underground. In fact, she had created her steampunk dress in response to a class assignment. She spent many a night toiling over a sewing machine to create her outfit. According to Johnston, there are several things that differentiate mere Victorian apparel from its steampunk counterpart. “Steampunk is kind of Victorian

on the person you’re talking to.” Blast! No trends appeared in terms of securing a firm definition for “hook up.” However, what did appear is a connection between the use of the term and the “user”. Baxter: “Yeah, if you knew that person was kind of … like ‘free love.’ Probably, all the way. But if you know

meets an industrial theme, but the industrial influence is purely by steam. We get everything we would see today, but with gears and steam.” Fischer, a computer science major, admires the technology side of steampunk. “I started seeing people steampunk their laptop, desktops and mice. People even have Bluetooth devices that are steampunked. It’s really cool seeing modern technology almost being taken back.” With both apparel and gadgets cropping up all geared-out, it’s only natural that has jumped on the bandwagon. Most of the vendors at the Wild Wild West Convention sell their products on similar websites. “It’s just something that showcases our talents,” said Thomas Rudmore, one of the many individuals with a table laden with steampunk accessories. He too was decked out in long overcoat and waxed moustache, apparently a huge fan despite his 60-odd years. “It’s more than crafting. It’s inventing.” Steampunk is generally assumed to have begun in the early 1990s. The amount of time that people at Wild Wild West Con have known about steampunk varied greatly, though. I asked Chris Perez, a 2010 UA graduate with a degree in linguistics, how long he has been a fan of steampunk. “I suppose I’ve been a semistalwart supporter of the stylized sci-fi scene since before

they’re really conservative, looking for the right person, you’d be shocked to find they went all the way.” Jessica Ahles (sophomore studying anthropology and journalism): “Now, it’s gone to more of an extreme level. People would have to clarify.” Despite the near ubiquitous acceptance of the term, the phrase

I was aware of its existence as a ‘movement,’” Perez said. “That is to say, as bad as that ‘Wild Wild West’ movie was, a youthful me immediately took a shine to the idea of old-timey, steam-driven science fiction.” Watch out ladies and gentlemen, because this movement is only gathering steam (pun intended). The most recent Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr., was heavily influenced by steampunk with its alternate technology. Panic! At the Disco’s most recent video for “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” is oozing with steampunk elements. There was even a “Steampunk Palin” comic released earlier this year. Just walking down Congress last week, I noticed birds made of gears painted onto the windows. There are novels, webisodes — Heaven forbid, even gear-jammed tattoos are getting popular. But why is steampunk important? It must be pretty interesting if it can motivate thousands of people to trudge over dusty Old Tucson Studios in elaborate getup in this heat. “To me, steampunk is a creative outlet, to be used in moderation,” Perez said. “Except during WWWC. Then moderation is for the weak. It’s a chance to have fun in a unique costume, regardless of age. I’d say it’s important because, in an age of excessive TV and videogames, it is a creative and artistic movement driven by literature. Also steam, but mostly literature.”

“hook up” persists as a conscious discursive placeholder. We may never be able to tie down “hook up” to a concrete rule, but that vigorous ambiguity suggests something more significant. Perhaps the use of the term, despite an inherent lack of clarity, mirrors in part the character of the culture using it. Undhjem: “It’s easier. It sounds a little more impressive. Instead of saying ‘we just made out,’ you can say ‘I hooked up with a nice girl last night.’” Kurt Mohty (mathematics sophomore): “They use the word ‘hook up’ because they want to have a bragging tone while they also don’t divulge any details. They’re vague so you wonder what happened.” Griswold: “That’s usually the connotation I hear about it, and they want you to assume the sexual connotation instead of something innocent.” Drawing from my research, it seems in line with the nature of the “hook up” experience to find it hard to qualify. College students are, after all, but thousands of ships on their maiden voyages, buffeted by the harsh seas of stress, personal growth and alcohol. It seems only natural that we would make a habit of capsizing, often quite forcefully, with our peers. If anything, the simultaneously universal and enigmatic nature of “hook up” reflects a culture unified in its lack of knowing what it wants. After all, if we always knew what we wanted, who we wanted, and who we wanted to be, would we “hook up” at all?

YONKERS continued from page 7 a confrontation fit to drive the second half of the play. The set, designed by Michael Schweikardt, depicts the inside of Grandma Kurnitz’s apartment and is striking in its meticulous craft. However, under the constraints of a single setting and Simon’s focus on banter (regardless of how humorous or wellwritten it may be) the first half of “Yonkers” feels dialogue-heavy. With minimal action, it is hard to come by a moment’s rest to collect one’s thoughts and focus on the nuances of the scene.

The cast gelled together well, and director Samantha K. Wyer forms them into a perfectly haphazard and authentic familial unit. Carlisle-King and DeLuca are nothing short of charming with costume designer David Kay Mickelsen’s high-waisted pants, their short-a split accents, and maleadolescent banter. “Yonkers” gives credit where it’s due to every generation and the secret value of family bickering. What family comes down to in Yonkers? As Dudley Malone put it, “I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me.”

An ‘Odyssey’ through literature, art and storytelling Odyssey.” She begins with pages from the book, and then alters the story by drawing and painting on them. Zidonik covers many of the words completely, leaving poetic fragments of sentences and phrases. The complete “Paper Boat Odyssey” will debut on April 15 at the University of Arizona Museum of Art, with a reception April 21. Wildlife had a chance to speak with Zidonik last week in her studio at the Visual Arts

By Miranda Butler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Homer’s “The Odyssey” is one of the oldest stories of all time. But Sarah Zidonik has found a way to bring this classical epic into the present moment. Zidonik is a graduate student pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts in studio art. She holds an undergraduate degree in art with an emphasis in printmaking and now experiments with many different media. For the past several months, Zidonik has been working with actual book pages from “The Odyssey” as an artistic medium. “My idea began with ‘The Odyssey’ as a journey and searching for the idea of home,” Zidonik said. “I have 25 copies of ‘The Odyssey’ with the pages cut out. I’m folding (the pages) into paper boats, then sewing (the boats) together.” Ultimately, Zidonik’s boats will form a standing artistic structure complete with entry portals. “I’m going to call it ‘an architecture of belonging,’” Zidonik said. There are three elements to Zidonik’s idea. Although most of her paper boats are made from ‘The Odyssey,’ she has also asked friends, family and fellow UA students to create their own paper boats. Zidonik provides contributors with onion-skin typewriter paper and asks them to handwrite a personal story. She estimates that by the end of her project, she will acquire about 300 original stories, which will be worked into the structure alongside the boats made from book pages. The third element of Zidonik’s project is her rewriting of “The

ONLINE To follow Zidonik’s work in progress, check out: http://paperboatodyssey. Graduate Research Laboratory. Flanked by an armada of paper boats, structural ideas and pages of “The Odyssey” tacked to the walls, Zidonik shared her inspiration and goals for the project. Can you tell me about working with pages of books as a medium? I’ve always loved books. I’ve been interested in using actual book pages to draw on top of for a while now. And in the boat form, when there’s not painting on top of it, I love looking at the texture. Also, we know those are words — they mean something if you read them. They contain so much story and experience. It’s fun to imagine all those words and the stories they tell when you see the text. So, we can’t actually read the

text on the boats, but we know it’s there. Is this part of the significance of your artwork? Yeah. I figure that with so many boats, it’s almost hard to even read a singular boat. And there’s so many of them. It’s the same kind of thing with the text — it’s hard to read individual words, but I want the words to convey the feeling of language and experience. You’ve had people handwrite their own stories to incorporate into your project. Is there a reason why you wanted to include that element as well? “The Odyssey” is filled with tons of stories about many different people. There’s a collaborative element of working with other people and making those connections. I wanted to learn about people through the stories they tell. Everyone has their own personality, and it comes through in the way they write. It’s fun because I have stories from a lot of people I know, as well as random people. Taking this epic — this very old story — and bringing it into the present moment is my idea. How will you combine the boats made out of people’s stories with the boats made out of “The Odyssey”? I haven’t sewn the handwritten stories in yet, but it won’t be a straight cut between them. I’m not going to have a dramatic change between the Odyssey boats and the handwritten stories; they’ll be worked in and sewn in similar ways, with kind of a gradual transition between them.

The Daily Wildcat and UA Career Services are teaming up to provide Career assistance to our dynamic UA readership Matthew Theis , from Turlock, California, graduated in Spring 2009 with a degree in Business Management. Matthew loved politics and by the time he had his learner’s permit, he was involved actively helping to get much-needed school bonds passed in his hometown. One of the primary forces driving him was, and is, a desire to make a difference. His plan is to start out small and build on each success. One day, he’d maybe even like to run for political office so don’t be surprised if in the future, you have a chance to vote for fellow Wildcat, Matthew Theis. Matthew interned in U.S. House of Representative George Radanovich’s District Office in Modesto, California. Matthew’s internship shows how connections, regardless of how remote they may seem, can make a huge difference.

Ibekwe, Whyte named to All Pac-10 1st team

Ibekwe also awarded with Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year By Dan Kohler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT For the second consecutive year, Arizona star p Ify Ibekwe has been named the Pacific 10 Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was selected for the All Pac-10 first team along with sophomore Davellyn Whyte, commissioner Larry Scott announced on Tuesday. Forward Erica Barnes was also named honorable mention AllPac-10 Freshman Team. For Ibekwe, adjusting to the college game was never a problem. Ibekwe finished the regular season as the only player in the Pac-10 to record double-double averages for the season with 16.1 points and 10 rebounds per game. After being named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year last season,

Whyte has maintained her prowess as one of the conference’s best shooting guards. This year, in her second goaround as an Arizona starter, the sophomore ranked seventh in points and 12th in assists in the conference throughout the regular season. Barnes managed to put up respectable numbers this season despite only starting three games. She averaged 6.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in 15.7 minutes logged per game. She also recorded three doubledoubles in wins against Wichita State, Bradley and New Mexico. With the loss of both dominant post presences Ibekwe and Soana Lucet at the end of the season, head coach Niya Butts and staff will be counting on Barnes to play some serious minutes next season.


Wildcats welcome Creighton Invitational. While the game does not offer the same intrigue as the upcoming series against No. 22 Baylor or the rematch with No. 9 Oklahoma, it is a good chance for the Wildcats to see how they stack up against in-state rival ASU, currently ranked No. 7 in the nation. The Sun Devils have a 4-3 victory over the same Oklahoma team that dismantled the Wildcats 11-1 in the Kajikawa Classic in February. Head coach Mike Candrea has yet to decide which pitcher will start against Creighton. Sophomore Kenzie Fowler is the

By Tyler Johnson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Arizona softball team has a rare mid-week game today against Creighton. The Bluejays are severely diminished from last year’s Missouri Valley Conference champion squad, with 11 freshmen on the roster compared to only 10 returning players. They do boast solid pitchers in Becca Changstrom and Kylie Hovinga, who have ERAs of 1.31 and 2.95, respectively. Creighton isn’t foreign to the desert, having lost 11-1 to ASU on Sunday in the Wilson/DeMarini

team’s No. 1 starter, but with three games against Baylor this weekend, it is likely Candrea will turn to freshman Shelby Babcock. Babcock has shown signs of improvement lately, with a very solid showing last weekend at the Wildcat Invitational. She gave up just four earned runs in 17 innings of work over the weekend and picked up three wins to move her record to a solid 7-1. The game against Creighton should offer a chance for Babcock to gain confidence and experience heading into a much tougher portion of the schedule for the Wildcats.

Ohio State suspends Tressel for two games, fined $25,000 Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel will be hit with a two-game suspension and a $250,000 fine after withholding information about players who committed NCAA violations, school officials announced a day after Yahoo! Sports revealed the allegations. The university self-reported the violation to the NCAA and selfimposed the punishments, but it could get bigger penalties after the NCAA reviews the ongoing case. “Obviously, I’m disappointed this happened at all,” Tressel said

at a news conference on Tuesday night. “I take my responsibility for what we do at Ohio State tremendously serious.” Ohio State officials had said they did not learn of the financial relationship between two players and a local tattoo parlor until Dec. 7. Athletic department officials learned on Jan. 13 that Tressel knew of the matter through emails in April, when they were looking into an another unrelated legal matter. Tressel said an attorney asked him via e-mail to keep the matter private so he would not interfere with a federal investigation that turned out not to involve the

Why Arizona will win

Derrick Williams

Head coach Niya Butts said that Arizona is playing the best basketball in the conference right now, and she may be right. The Wildcats have won six of their last seven, with the lone loss being a heartbreaker to No. 7 UCLA. On top of that, Arizona’s bracket starts off favorably with a game against ninth-seeded Oregon, although playing Stanford in the semifinal is daunting.

It’s a no-brainer. Williams makes Arizona go, so long as he isn’t on the bench within minutes of the tip. Even if his numbers don’t blow anyone away, the forward’s presence inside opens up shots or lanes to the basket for his fellow Wildcats. His 22 minutes of four free throw attempts and seven field goal attempts were more than enough for the Wildcats to tab 20 assists and a 56 percent field goal line against Oregon. That being said, those numbers might not be good enough to sweep through the Pac-10 Tournament. Williams will need to stay on the court and assert himself for more than 25 minutes per game if Arizona expects to advance.

Why Arizona will win

Facing Oregon, the Wildcats regained their offensive groove by making the Ducks pay for collapsing their defense on forward Derrick Williams. So what’d UA do? It shot 11-for-25 from beyond the arc and earned 23 points at the foul line. Williams scored 14 points and was limited with foul troubles, but his four most important teammates — guards Momo Jones and Kyle Fogg, along with forwards Kevin Parrom and Solomon Hill — all had their second consecutive strong outings. And despite being unable to put either Oregon school completely away this past weekend, Arizona did make enough defensive stops to avoid any nail-biters. If they can carry that McKale magic to the Staples

Why Arizona will lose

No one on Arizona’s roster has been in this position before; including head coach Niya Butts — at least as a coach. Right now, the Wildcats are probably on the outside looking into the NCAA Tournament bubble. But if Arizona can find a way to get to the Pacific 10 Conference Tournament semifinals and put a scare into No. 1 seed Stanford, there’s a good chance it will be in the Big Dance for the first time since the 20042005 season. There’s no doubt seniors Ify Ibekwe, Soana Lucet and Amanda Pierson want to get in, but Arizona’s running out of time to make its case. — Alex Williams


Shanita Arnold Why Arizona will lose

Junior guard Shanita Arnold could be the key to Arizona making a run in the Pac-10 Tournament. When she gets a feel for the tempo of the game, Arizona is tough to beat — especially when she’s knocking down outside shots. Arnold tries to push the tempo too much sometimes, which can lead to too many turnovers. But when she’s clicking, she makes defenses extend out to the 3-point line, which opens up the inside for Ibekwe and Lucet — a key against bigger teams like Southern California or Stanford.

An NCAA Tournament bid isn’t on the line for Arizona, only upholding a high seed is. Just as a No. 10 national ranking got to players’ heads two weeks ago, the glee of the regular season conference championship runs the risk of causing Arizona’s team to eye the NCAA Tournament rather than the task at hand. In the end, Arizona doesn’t have as much to play for as do a number of other teams who are fighting for NCAA Tournament eligibility or playing this tournament as their entire postseason. If the Wildcats come out flat, especially on the road, even a first round loss is possible.

Center, they’ll be in good shape..

Team with most to gain



At 18-13, the Trojans are on the outside looking in, but after playing well toward the end of the season, that all could change. Probably the most likely team to upset a UCLA, Washington or Arizona, winning two games against No. 5 seed Cal and (likely) No. 1 seed Arizona might put them on the bubble. ESPN’s bracketology has the Trojans being one of the first four teams out, and as Wildcat fans and Southern California head coach Kevin O’Neill know, sometimes a team doesn’t need 20 wins to reach the NCAA Tournament — see then-interim head coach O’Neill’s Arizona squad in 2008, which won 19 games before losing in the first round. Granted, that was a much, much better Pac-10 in 2008. Oh, and then that whole NCAA investigation took away that 2008 postseason, so nevermind.

Team with most to lose Washington

Currently predicted as a No. 10 seed in many NCAA brackets, the Huskies can’t falter much more. If head coach Lorenzo Romar’s team and its 20-10 record loses right off the bat in the Pac-10 Tournament, then all of a sudden UW is risking being a bubble team for NCAA consideration. Though the Huskies played a tough schedule, which has accounted for most of the losses, they won’t be helping themselves if they drop to a No. 12 NCAA seed and play a tough No. 5 squad from, say, the Big East Conference. A poor Pac-10 showing makes Washington’s NCAA Tournament run a short one.


Klay Thompson, WSU

Cougar head coach Ken Bone announced that his star player, Thompson, will return to game action after being suspended for marijuana possession last week. As the No. 6 seed in the tournament, Washington State does have 19 wins on the season and with Thompson, the ability to knock off their rival Huskies in the team’s first game at Staples Center. Without Thompson, the Cougars put a scare to UCLA, who won by four points in Pullman, Wash., on Saturday. Who knows? Maybe Thompson’s return and a newfound confidence in his teammates without him might spark a run to the championship game.

Winner UCLA

Of all the contests, the Bruins have the easiest path. Arizona runs the risk of playing an Oregon State team that it doesn’t match-up well with before facing USC or Cal, who both know they can play with the Wildcats. Then, assuming the top seeds win, they’d have to beat UCLA or Washington for the title. Meanwhile, the Huskies play their rival in the first game and will likely hit a second game versus the Bruins, who have the Los Angeles advantage tacked on to what should be an easier first game against Oregon or ASU. The Bruins get the luck of the draw and have enough left in the tank to come out on top. — Kevin Zimmerman

Team with most to gain UCLA

No. 7 UCLA has been playing second fiddle to No. 2 Stanford’s dominance for the past few years. In this year’s tournament, the Cardinal and the Bruins are positioned next to each other as the number one and number two seeds, respectively, and will most likely be the match up for the title at the end of the tournament. The Cardinal dominated in the regular season, beating the Bruins in both of their meetings, and Stanford is already almost guaranteed a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. UCLA will also have a tournament bid, but an upset victory over Stanford could set them up with the confidence and momentum needed to propel them through the first couple rounds of the tournament.

Team with most to lose ASU

Far behind UCLA in terms of season record is ASU, which will be

gunning for the tournament title to receive an NCAA tournament bid. If the Sun Devils fall in the first round of the Pac-10 Tournament, the season is lost and it’s time to focus on preparations to get an NCAA Tournament bid for next season.


Jeanette Pohlen

It’s hard to argue against Pac-10 Player of the Year Jeanette Pohlen, whose 15 points per game have been the greatest contributor to the Cardinal’s success. She will make clutch shots when her team needs them and could easily punish opposing offenses with her tenacious defensive abilities.

Winner Stanford

It’s starting become a cliché, but nobody else in the conference comes in with as much consistency as the Cardinal. — Dan Kohler
