GRADING HOOPS: UA EARNS ALL A’S AND B’S
BY ELIZABETH EATON The Daily Wildcat
Spring Fling is returning to campus for its 40th anniversary this weekend, after 15 years. Setup for Spring Fling, which organizers say is one of the largest student-run carnivals in the country, began Monday. Crews have begun fencing off the UA Mall from Cherry Avenue to Campbell Avenue, where all the rides will be erected; at least five of the rides had already arrived on the mall Monday. A total of 30 to 35 rides are expected, including the Mach 1, the Techno Jump, Mega Drop and the Zipper. Morgan Abraham, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said the whole purpose of the annual carnival is to raise money for clubs. On average, about 50 clubs participate, setting up booths to run an activity or sell food for tickets, which are the currency used at Spring Fling. “At the end of the event, the tickets equal X amount of dollars,” Abraham said. “So, [clubs] are able to make money and we’re able to put on an amazing event for students; it’s a win-win for everyone.” In its 25 first years, Spring Fling was held on campus. It only moved to Rillito Downs when construction began for the Manuel Pacheco Integrated Learning Center and the event could no longer be held on the Mall. The carnival had been expected to move back to

campus after construction was over, Abraham said, but ended up staying at Rillito Downs — until this year. Jared Young, an accounting and finance senior and the executive director of Spring Fling, said bringing the carnival back to campus is like bringing it home. “I am really excited just to see Spring Fling back where it started and see something that’s
been missing from campus for 15 years,” Young said. “There’s just been something missing. … The atmosphere was not the same.” Efforts to bring Spring Fling back to campus have been ongoing for several years, Abraham said, after hearing students express negative views on having the carnival off campus. “We thought this was a really
good opportunity to bring it [Spring Fling] back and re-engage students who hadn’t been able to experience it in the past,” Abraham said. But some have expressed disapproval over the carnival’s reintroduction to campus. Residents of nearby housing associations such as the Sam Hughes area raised concerns about

Faculty endorses UA tobacco ban BY JORDAN FOWLER The Daily Wildcat
Despite objections from other members, the Faculty Senate voted to endorse a proposed tobacco ban on campus at its meeting Monday. The Faculty Senate made it clear that the Tobaccofree University of Arizona Policy would apply to public events, such as the Tucson Festival of Books, as well as any university property not directly on the UA campus. Associated Students of
the University of Arizona Sen. Michael Mazzella, a communication junior, raised the issue of smokers living in dorms in his objection to the policy. “Keeping in mind students who live on campus and in dormitories … who are smokers who choose to smoke. We’re all adults and we have that right to make that choice for ourselves,” Mazzella said. “They then would not be able to go home and smoke where they live.” His objection was met
with support by John Ulreich, a professor of English and self-proclaimed “recovering” smoker, who questioned whether or not the smoking population had any representation in the discussions on this policy. However, the endorsement of the policy was ultimately passed. Revisions to the oneon-one minor interaction policy were also discussed by Faculty Senate members. The revisions would

Grad students to host events for EarthWeek BY KATYA MENDOZA
The Daily Wildcat
Guests will get the chance to learn about tree rings, Big Foot and more during four days of graduate student-hosted events this week. EarthWeek, which is being held on campus this week, is being hosted by the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences for the fifth year in a row. The events, organized entirely by graduate students, feature oral presentations, poster sessions and a keynote speaker. Michael Stovern, an atmospheric sciences graduate student and co-chair for EarthWeek, said that the event was created to combine individual events hosted by each Earth and Environmental Sciences department. “Each of the individual departments tended to have long-running symposiums,” Stovern said. “We brought them all under one banner.” Including a joint collaboration among the different departments of the SEES, each individual department will have its own day of events, beginning today with the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research’s “TreeRing Day” in the new Bryant Banister Tree-Ring Building.
MTV show does not deter teen pregnancy BY LAUREN NIDAY

The popular MTV show “16 and Pregnant” does more than just entertain, according to a study by a UA professor. The study, which was led by communication professor Jennifer Stevens Aubrey, shows that viewers who identify with the teenage mothers on the show tend to view teen pregnancy more favorably. While watching a segment on “The Today Show” with two of the teenage mothers from “16 and Pregnant” and Dr. Drew Pinsky, Aubrey said she noticed that when the girls were asked if the show worked as educational entertainment, Pinsky quickly interrupted. Instead of allowing the teens to share their experiences, Pinsky spoke over them, aggressively boasting about the success of the program in preventing teenage pregnancy. “You can’t just say it works because hypothetically it could,” Aubrey said. Aubrey said that she decided to focus her study on whether “16 and Pregnant” was effective as a pregnancy prevention mechanism and if the show improved behavioral intentions to avoid teen pregnancy, because when the show aired

Alexis Arizpe, a graduate student studying natural resources and tree-ring research, will present a poster on previous research on recent “Big Foot” sightings. “This is an opportunity to showcase
research for each of the departments … in a way that is more accessible to the public,” Arizpe said. Stovern said that the goal for EarthWeek is to inform the public about the research being done at the UA. “With all of the research dollars being spent, there is a plethora of different research field campaigns,” Stovern said. “This is more or less a showcase, not only to the UA community, but the community as a whole.” EarthWeek is a great platform for funding
and excitement of graduate students for their work on a larger scale. “Most of our time is spent working toward our research without many people knowing what we’re trying to do,” Stovern said. “It’s a great way of us getting our work out there for the world to see.”

the noise level of Spring Fling. “The neighbors are just concerned about noise, disruption and disregard,” Young said. “We’ve really incorporated them into the planning to make sure that they’re ok with how we’re doing things.” Young said he and his team have worked on the layout of Spring Fling, finding ways to position rides and the concert stage to minimize noise. The team has also eliminated Thursday, usually the first day of Spring Fling, from the carnival’s schedule out of respect for the nearby residents. “It is a disruption, but we’re hoping that the bigger message of what we’re doing for the community and what we’re doing for the clubs ultimately shines brighter than the disruption,” Young said.

THE DAILY WILDCAT • 3 Spring Fling last year because it was off campus. “No one really talked about it last year, and all my friends didn’t go to it,” Kennard said. “This year it’s going to be on campus, so I think they’re going to get a better turnout. I’m going to go.” Elizabeth Bercel, an ecology and evolutionary biology senior, said she went to Spring Fling her freshman and sophomore years, but stopped going after the second year because she didn’t think it was worth the money. After finding out that it was on campus this year and admission is free with a CatCard, Bercel said that she might think about attending. Abraham said he hopes the event will garner the biggest turnout it’s had in a long time. “I think the big thing is how we are engaging the students, and how clubs are doing as far as fundraising,” Abraham said. “I’m very confident that there will be more students than ever this year.”

focus specifically on non-enrolled minors participating in university programs. The revision was outlined by Laura Todd Johnson, vice president of Legal Affairs and General Counsel, with its main objectives being protection for minors, paying attention and speaking up. The focus is on prevention and information, Johnson said, so all parties can be completely aware and informed about the interactions taking place. “It’s an unwavering commitment to child safety on campus,” Johnson said, “but with
in 2009, MTV was advertising it as an educational entertainment program. “What I had been seeing at the beginning of the ‘16 and Pregnant’ craze was a lot of rhetoric around the notion of it saving us from the teen pregnancy epidemic,” Aubrey said. Aubrey said it was clear that MTV chose girls for the show who would be relatable to girls all across the country. “If they [teenage girls] see someone like them going through teen pregnancy, that is going to make them not want to emulate it,” Aubrey said. Homophily, or perceived similarities, and parasocial interaction became two of the main focuses of Aubrey’s study. “We measured how much the girls in our study perceived themselves
some built-in mechanisms and things that will help.” It was proposed that the ban on one-on-one interaction between adult employees and nonenrolled minors be lifted and replaced with a parental consent form, which would have to be signed before interaction took place. Programs on campus that require one-on-one contact would also have to be registered. UA President Ann Weaver Hart said the goal of these revisions was to ensure that no program would be impossible to run. Concerns raised about the revisions considered the representation of minors by faculty in the James E. Rogers College of Law, as well as potential issues that might arise

to be similar to the teen moms in ‘16 and Pregnant,’” Aubrey said. Parasocial interaction looks at whether the girls who participated in the study would be friends with the girls on the show in real life. Through the study, Aubrey said, she found that there was a strong positive relationship between perceived similarities and favorable attitudes about teen pregnancy. She said that when a girl thinks of herself in the same way she perceives the teenage moms, she ends up thinking teen pregnancy is positive. Taryn Hill, a criminal justice freshman, said that she is not an avid viewer of “16 and Pregnant,” but from what she has seen, she believes that the show does not do anything to educate people on preventing teenage pregnancy. Hill said that she remembers a young girl at her high school having a pregnancy scare, and that instead of being terrified, the girl thought about

Aubrey said that many of the girls who look up to the teenage moms in “16 and Pregnant” do not have plans for the future and do not plan on going to college. “If I would be critical of the show it would [about] be the lack of contraception knowledge, and also the glamorization of the relationships,” Aubrey said. “I think those are the two areas where MTV didn’t fulfill their educational mission.” Yanelly Nunez, a pre-business sophomore, said that she agrees with Aubrey that MTV missed the mark on educational value. “It’s just another reality show,” Nunez said. “Its sole purpose is to entertain.”

She expressed her sorrow over the loss but said she was relieved to know that as a university, there was nothing that could have been done to know that the two students were climbing on the roof of their residence hall so early in the morning. “This is so much a reflection of the daredevil dangers that come with being a teenager, and I just want you to know how terrible we all feel about this,” Hart said. — Follow Jordan Fowler @ JordanFowler7

PowerPointfueled profs need update BY shelby thomas The Daily Wildcat
hen a professor opens up a PowerPoint during a lecture, I feel my eyelids grow heavy and suppress the yawn that inevitably forms when I see black bullet points. According to PowerPoint Info, more than 6 million teachers across the globe use PowerPoint when giving lectures. Since its use is so prevalent, it’s crucial that PowerPoint enhances the effectiveness of educators, rather than stifling the potential to spread knowledge. Because while PowerPoint can be a dynamic and useful program, the application does not run itself. Only when combined with other teaching styles will PowerPoint create the desired learning experience for students. An article by The Teaching Center examined research conducted in college classrooms regarding attention span, and stressed the importance of using active learning methods throughout lectures due to the fleeting attention span of college students. While research does not point to one standard length of time that students can focus, it does reveal that students are more likely to stay engaged through visual stimulation, participation, group discussion and other interactive methods. Further research featured in U.S. News & World Report found that student attention increased when the instructor used certain methods — among them being quiz and test reviews, videos and the interjection of humor or personal stories into the lesson. These are just some tools that would complement a bland PowerPoint presentation. After 10 or so slides, showing a video or assigning a small group discussion would keep students more engaged and encourage more interest and participation that could ultimately increase grades and attendance. Pat Willerton, associate professor in the School of Government and Public Policy, is one UA professor who implements creative teaching methods to keep students more actively engaged in his Politics of Happiness course. He said that he enjoys using PowerPoint during his larger lectures because of its dynamism, but tries to keep his presentations exciting for his students. “When you are teaching these long classes, you can’t do the same thing for 75 minutes. You could stand on your head while juggling balls and telling jokes and it will eventually get boring,” Willerton said, “so I like to break things up.” Willerton organizes his material through PowerPoint so that students know how to spell important names and can see an outline, as many teachers do, he said. However, he also uses it in a way that sets him apart. For example, Willerton will always play music from the country the class is studying when students enter the room. He also said that he will display the PowerPoint outline on one screen while a YouTube video related to the topic plays at the same time. Students might not be the only ones to benefit if a slightly smaller portion of class time were spent on PowerPoint to make room for more interactive activities. Professors would also be forced to consider the way they teach, as well as the quality of their slides. Words, words and more words often fill each slide from top to bottom while students do one of two things: Hastily try to read, digest and vigorously scribble down the abundance of information as fast as they can, or give up and zone out. Worse, some professors often rattle off exactly what is on the slides verbatim, which doesn’t clarify anything, nor does it enhance a student’s understanding. Text shouldn’t be the only way information is communicated to students. Using popular social media sites is one way to connect with students. In order to increase student participation, Willerton uses Twitter to get immediate answers to real-time questions from his students. He recognizes that some students are a little intimidated in large classes and less likely to contribute their input verbally. He also encourages his students to join the Facebook group for his courses, which he affectionately calls a “lounge,” so that students can interact comfortably with each other and with teaching assistants. Student reaction to the creative aspects of Willerton’s teaching style in large lecture classes has been, for the most part, extremely favorable, as he has received high evaluation numbers and good attendance, and people have really enjoyed it, he said. Using various types of technology in the classroom can be effective, helpful and even fundamental to a student’s achievement. However, effective implementation by professors is imperative to student success. There is a balance between student and teacher effort that will result in the optimal learning experience, and PowerPoint can be helpful to this process — but only if it is used as more than a crutch.

Grades aren’t everything in STEM BY mackenzie brown
The Daily Wildcat
’ve always known I wanted to be a STEM major, no questions asked. What’s surprising to me, though, is how few women seem to share my absolutism when it comes to pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. According to a study by Georgetown University, only 31 percent of computer and math majors are women, and only 16 percent of engineering majors are women. There has to be a reason for such dismal numbers. One theory taking hold is that it’s the fear of failure or the difficulty of attaining a 4.0 GPA that leads few women to complete STEM programs. Whatever the case, the leaky pipeline of women falling out of high-demand and lucrative degree options needs to stop. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t until I came to college that I got my first C, which also led to my first existential crisis about the trajectory of my life — both as a woman and as an aspiring scientist. The C was in calculus, one of the fundamental courses for my major, which made it even worse. However, this discouraging
feeling is apparently commonplace for women in STEM fields. Catherine Rampell of The Washington Post recently wrote an article about how women are less likely to continue pursuing degrees in STEM subjects if they receives lower grades than the As they want. According to Rampell, women are afraid of performing imperfectly in a field that has one of the worst reputations for awarding As. Rather than sticking it out, women tend to shy away from classes in which Bs or even Cs are the highestawarded grades because they equate As with success and anything lower with failure. Interestingly enough, men tend to share fewer of these reservations. Neither Rampell nor her interviewees know exactly where this male-female difference comes from, especially because women are usually just as prepared as men to enter STEM fields. Women are also often more eager to study in those fields than their male counterparts. Yes, it was tough earning a C for the first time and of course I thought about completely changing my career path because of it, but where’s the fun in that? It shouldn’t feel less acceptable for a woman to earn a C in a difficult course when she’s doing just as well as the other students. But women in STEM feel like

Pulse of the Pac Columnists from around the Pac-12 write about allies, microaggressions and reimagination From “Allies are not meant to be leaders” by Georgie Zamantakis
From “I, too, am who?” by Lauren Thurman
Being an ally is a process in which one is constantly working to unlearn, relearn and unlearn all over again. It means understanding that terminology changes, that one individual cannot speak for an entire community, and that you are working towards minimizing microaggressions and ridding yourself of prejudices. … It is also important to know that it is not your job to speak for a community you are not a part of. You do not understand those experiences and never will, no matter how hard you try. … It would be impossible to make people understand that queer* and trans* people are not the spawn of Satan without them. However, an ally, as the dictionary defines it is meant “to join with another person, group, etc., in order to get or give support,” key word being support. The Daily Utah Chronicle University of Utah
Almost two weeks ago, CU’s Women’s Resource Center launched a Tumblr blog called “I, Too, Am CU.” The blog, a campaign to raise awareness for smallscale but pervasive discriminatory behavior — microaggressions — on campus, features photos of students from various minority groups relating their experience with prejudice at CU. … Instead of a thought-out initiative led by the CU community, informed by our particular needs and goals, “I, Too, Am CU” seems to be grasping onto the tail-end of an Internet fad. … Minority students here do not face the exact same challenges or share the exact same goals as those of Harvard, Oxford or Iowa. By mimicking all three campaigns, though, the project’s impact is diluted, its intentions thrown into question. CU Independent University of Colorado, Boulder

From “Symbols of hate cannot be transformed into art” by Tishni Weerasinghe
There are many things that represent terror in history. When you see the Confederate flag, you are automatically brought back to the times of the racism that took place early in America’s history. … Or, when you think about a swastika you start to feel the sorrow for all those who suffered under Adolf Hitler’s terror. … But can these symbols be transformed into something different to those who view it? … Some symbols will always hold a negative connotation to them whether it be that people want to change it or not. Bottom line is that symbols which were once considered art can be changed in a matter of seconds into something negative, and they can never be changed back. The State Press Arizona State University

Police Beat BY Jordan Fowler The Daily Wildcat
It just fell in
A UA student was diverted the Dean of Students Office for shoplifting Thursday at the UofA Bookstore. Two loss prevention employees at the bookstore told a University of Arizona Police Department officer that they had seen a woman on the security camera who was walking around with a shirt in her hand. She bent down in a spot not visible on camera, and when she stood up she did not have the shirt in her hand. She then left the store. One of the employees said he had checked the area to see if the woman had dropped the shirt, but did not see it there. The employees followed the student outside to detain her for shoplifting. When they asked to search her purse she appeared to shove something further inside it before handing it to them. The shirt was found in her purse under several personal items. When questioned by the UAPD officer, the student said she had accidentally knocked a shirt off of a hanger and put the shirt in question on her purse while she fixed the fallen items. She said she then left to meet up with some friends and did not realize she had taken the shirt. The UAPD officer gave the student a diversion notice for shoplifting.

Red means stop
A woman unaffiliated with the UA was cited and released for minor in possession of alcohol and for failing to stop at a stop sign on Thursday. Two UAPD officers noticed a car run a stop sign without stopping or slowing down. They pulled the car over and identified the driver, who said she did not have a license. One of the officers then noticed a bottle of alcohol in the backseat. He asked the woman whose alcohol it was and she said it belonged to her sister. The other officer then noticed more alcohol on the front passenger floorboard. The officers had the woman step out of her car and removed all of the alcohol. The woman then said she had been with her sister and a friend at Eden strip club. Her sister and friend, who had been drinking, wanted to go to Fourth Avenue afterward, so she drove them there. She said she was on her way home now and had not consumed any alcohol. The woman’s car was then impounded and she was cited and released.

Landslide work lacks funding Mcclatchy tribune
SEATTLE — In the weeks before the Oso mudslide, Shari Brewer and her husband noticed a change in the bluff that towered over the North Fork of the Stillaguamish. A crack at the top of the slope was widening, but it didn’t seem like anything to be alarmed about. “It was just sliding down a little,” Brewer said. “It wasn’t a lot, but we could see that it was opening up.” Large landslides don’t strike out of the blue, said Jeffrey Moore, a geologist at the University of Utah. Unstable slopes almost always creep, slough and sag long before they let loose. Monitoring that movement can provide lifesaving warnings, though the approach is rarely used in the Northwest. “I don’t know why we don’t invest more in trying to pre-empt these disasters,” Moore said, before correcting himself. “I do know why.” It is because monitoring is costly. Few states have enough funds to even identify the most treacherous slopes. In Switzerland, a landslide-prone hill like the one that collapsed and killed at least 30 people on March 22 would have been wired with sensors and surveyed at least twice a year for signs of movement, Moore said. That country’s vigilance has averted multiple disasters in narrow, alpine valleys, where residents evacuated to safety before major slides came crashing down. Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon copper mine in Utah sent workers home and relocated equipment the morning of April 10, 2013, based on monitoring with state-of-theart radar and other methods. Later that day, a massive slide thundered through the pit. “The technologies are out there,” Moore said. “This is something that people should really speak up for.” But budgets for landslide work are “at the bottom of the pile” when it comes to geologic hazards, said Scott Burns, a professor at Portland State University. Landslides are intermittent and
Workers with surveying equipment work in the mudslide debris field west of Darrington, Wash., last Wednesday. Many states have cut back efforts to monitor potential landslide sites because landslides are intermittent and cause relatively little death and destruction.
don’t cause as much death and destruction as earthquakes or floods. That’s why the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) devotes only $3 million a year to landslides and one reason why many states — including Washington — have cut back their efforts, he said. There’s no federal inventory of landslide-prone slopes, and the existing USGS map dates back to 1982. States and counties have lists, but most are incomplete. Washington’s was compiled without input from a new lasermapping technique that has revealed many previously unknown slide zones. It’s impossible to monitor every landslide, Moore said. An effective
program has to start by singling out the most dangerous ones: those like the Oso slide, which have failed in the past and loom over communities. With new technologies like laser mapping and satellite imaging, that can be done, said Jonathan Stock, director of the USGS Innovation Center for Earth Science. That more and more communities are expanding into landslide-prone rural and suburban areas adds urgency. “What people want to know is where the landslides are, when they might happen and how big they might be,” Stock said. Monitoring can address the “when” question. The movement that precedes most major slides usually starts
slowly, then accelerates as collapse draws near, Moore explained. “We use displacement trends to predict the time of failure,” he said. There’s a wide range of instruments that can detect and monitor those trends. Some of the best are inserted in boreholes, where they track what’s going on deep inside a hill. Devices called inclinometers and tiltmeters can tell when slumping starts and how fast it’s proceeding. Piezometers detect changes in water pressure due to rain and runoff, which can force apart soil grains and weaken the bonds of friction that help keep slopes upright. Other instruments scan the landscape for deformation. The
same laser method used for aerial maps, called lidar (light detection and ranging), can be deployed on the ground to detect tiny bulges or slumps. GPS sensors can serve the same function. The newest groundbased radars are able to discern millimeter-level shifts. The more intensive the monitoring, the higher the price tag. Mining operations lead the way in landslide monitoring, because they have so much at stake, Moore said. A single ground-based radar can cost $250,000, and the Utah mine used six to pinpoint the timing of last year’s slide. But it’s possible to devise a basic system that’s much less pricey, Moore said. In some Swiss valleys, surveyors take readings once or twice a year and only step up their efforts if they detect anything alarming. Cheaper options are also in the pipeline. Engineers in Switzerland are developing wireless GPS instruments that can be linked in a network and cost about a thousand dollars. Neil Dixon and his colleagues at the University of Loughborough in the U.K. are testing an acoustic system that provides continuous monitoring for an initial investment of less than $10,000. Called Slope ALARM, it’s basically a metal pipe sunk into a hillside and filled with gravel. As the slope slips, the gravel rumbles; specially tuned sensors pick up that sound. The noisier it gets, the greater the chance of failure, Dixon explained. At some predetermined threshold, the system sends out warnings. Experts caution that there’s no way to know whether a monitoring system in Oso could have prevented the loss of life. Any effective warning system requires an understanding of the slope and its dynamics, Dixon said. “None of these instruments are magic wands,” Dixon said. “You need engineering and geologic assessments … to even decide where to put your instruments.”

Pro-Russians seize Eastern Ukraine Mcclatchy tribune
MOSCOW — Pro-Russia demonstrators who seized the regional administrative building in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk announced Monday that they were declaring an independent republic and would hold a referendum about joining the region with Moscow. The country’s acting president, Olexandr Turchinov, blamed Russia for the unrest and said an anti-terrorism operation will be launched against any demonstrators who take up arms to capture government buildings. “Yesterday, the second wave of Russia’s special operation was launched with the aim of destabilizing the situation in the country, overthrowing Ukraine’s government, disrupting the election and tearing up the country,” Turchinov said in a televised speech Monday. “This is all happening at a time when Russian forces are staying at our borders.” Crowds took over at least three government buildings Sunday in industrial cities in eastern Ukraine, which has been plagued by demonstrations in favor of stronger ties to Moscow. In Donetsk, Ukraine’s coal-mining capital, several hundred protesters barricaded themselves in the administration building Monday with car tires and barbed wire and raised a Russian flag. They demanded that a referendum be held about the possible secession of the region, which borders Russia, the UNIAN news agency reported. They also appealed to Moscow to deploy
peacekeepers in the region. There were similar scenes in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, where protesters flew the Russian flag on top of the regional administration building. In Lugansk, demonstrators were holding the regional Security Service building and a weapons depot. Nine people, including law enforcement officers, were injured in that attack, UNIAN reported. Ukrainian presidential candidate Oleg Lyashko, who was in Lugansk, said the arms cache seized by protesters included about 300 submachine guns, 100 handguns and 20 sniper rifles. Between 10 and 15 armed men were positioned around the building, Lyashko wrote on his Facebook page. “The criminals are predominantly military and Afghan war veterans, and there are about 150 of them in the [Security Service] building,” Lyashko wrote. “Some of the terrorists are Russian sabotage agents, given away by their accent.” The Ukrainian government sent delegations headed by three ministers to the affected cities Monday to hold talks with the protesters. Acting Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said progress was being made in resolving the standoff in Kharkiv. “Overnight we elaborated a clear-cut plan of action to overcome the situation,” Yatsenyuk said on TV on Monday. “I am in constant contact with the law enforcement section.” Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, another presidential candidate, reportedly flew to Donetsk to try
to help defuse the situation there. Police have offered little or no resistance to the protesters. “The police are demoralized, since they have not been given an order to open fire on the attackers,” Vadim Karasyov, director of the Kiev-based Institute of Global Strategies, told the Los Angeles Times. “They know only too well that a single shot fired and a single casualty among the attackers may prompt the Kremlin to declare that ‘fascist extremists’ are killing Russian nationals in eastern Ukraine, and Russian troops absolutely must invade Ukraine to prevent the bloodshed.” Karasyov said Moscow doesn’t recognize Ukraine’s interim government and is trying to disrupt the presidential election scheduled for May 25. Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated his position during a meeting with the Federal Security Service leadership in Moscow on Monday. What happened in Ukraine was “an anti-constitutional coup,” mainly carried out by “nationalist, neo-Nazi structures and militants” and financed from abroad, Putin said. Thousands of Russian troops are deployed all along Ukraine’s border, at a distance of 20 miles from the frontier, Yatsenyuk said. Ukraine’s acting foreign minister, Andriy Deshchytsia, told the Russian radio station Echo of Moscow that his country would fight back in the event of a Russian invasion. Russia “has no grounds to deploy troops in the eastern regions of Ukraine,” Deshchytsia said.

UA MAKES THE GRADE The Wildcats fell short of a national championship, but earned high marks on the Daily Wildcat’s grading scale BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat
This past season was one of the most successful of all time for the Arizona men’s basketball team. Its 33 total wins are the second most in school history. That being said, the Wildcats had three preseason goals: Be the outright Pac-12 champions, the Pac-12 Tournament champions and the NCAA Tournament champions. They only accomplished one of those goals. Once again Arizona failed to get past the Elite Eight. However, considering the injuries and adversity they endured, calling this season a failure might be too harsh. Here are the season grades by position:
Junior T.J. McConnell restored faith in the name “Point Guard U.” After much anticipation, McConnell proved to be the “true point guard” that Arizona had been missing. In fact, his pass-first mentality was so evident that his lack of scoring became a negative. Senior Jordin Mayes was a strong reserve who brought defensive emphasis when he stepped on the court. However, once again a lack of offense limited the point guard position.

When your starting two guard is the Pac-12 Player of the Year and a finalist for the Naismith Trophy there’s not much to complain about. Junior Nick Johnson is easily one of the 50 greatest Wildcats of all time. If he returns for a senior season, he has the potential to be one of 25 greatest Arizona basketball players of all time. Alongside Johnson, sophomore Gabe York filled in well as a third guard after sophomore forward Brandon Ashley’s injury. York’s improvement from last season might have been the most dramatic, next to Ashley’s.
For most of the season the small forward position was split between freshmen Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Gordon’s rebounding ability and athleticism allowed him to have one of the most successful freshman seasons, and his 303 rebounds this season are the most by any Arizona freshman ever. Hollis-Jefferson was the spark off the bench. An energetic and never-ending effort was what Hollis-Jefferson brought to the

court. His energy helped him excel as a rebounder and a shut down defender. If he returns and develops more of an offensive game, his potential appears limitless.
The power forward position was a complicated one this year. For the first 21 games, it was the most consistent and reliable position. Arizona head coach Sean Miller has said players grow the most between their freshman and sophomore season, and Ashley was a perfect example of that. His height and skill gave Arizona tremendous size in the post. When he left, that was gone. The depth behind Ashley
failed to make up for his loss, and the Wildcats went from a great rebounding team to an average one.
Once Ashley went down, the center position was primarily sophomore Kaleb Tarczewski’s. Junior Matt Korcheck was a decent replacement to give Tarczewski rest, but for the most part, the 7-foot Tarczewski was it. Over the season, Tarczewski improved his offense by becoming better at creating his own shot. In fact, Tarczewski’s offense seemed to improve most after Ashley was injured. But once again the Wildcats’
inability to have depth beyond Tarczewski hindered Arizona’s grade and chances of reaching the Final Four.
The Wildcats’ season could have gone to the dogs when Ashley was injured. However, Miller and his coaching staff found a way to save face. Miller quickly recognized the change in the team and found a three-guard lineup that worked.

Hill returns from ACL injury to lead Wildcats
Arizona similar to champs BY JAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat
Until his knee was healthy enough, Hill was limited to watching his coaches instruct and his team practice. From his new perspective, Hill said he was able to grasp a better understanding of what his coaches had been yelling at him for. He also said he realized how right they were. It didn’t take long for Hill to become another coach yelling at his teammates. “Everything [receivers] coach [Tony] Dews was saying was becoming true,” Hill said. “‘Oh, he’s not sticking this route, oh, he’s not doing this on this route.’ I got to see everything I was doing wrong too.” Hill added he thinks he has since become a smarter receiver.

While Arizona lost in the Elite Eight, the Wildcats seem destined to return to the Final Four as often as the royalblue Wildcats of Kentucky. Arizona was only a shot away from punching its ticket to Texas. On the surface, Arizona doesn’t seem to have much in common with UConn and Kentucky, other than both being basketball blue bloods. Neither Kentucky or UConn was even in the NCAA tournament last year, when Arizona made the Sweet Sixteen. The Huskies were a No. 7 seed and Kentucky a No. 8 seed. Neither team won its NCAA tournament games in a dominant fashion; Kentucky lost 11 games and UConn was defeated by SMU twice. These two teams aren’t Cinderellas, though, in spite of their low seeds. While Kentucky was a No. 8 seed, it’s supremely talented and was ranked No. 1 the first two weeks of the season. Meanwhile, UConn only

Almost a year ago to the day, Arizona receiver Austin Hill tore his ACL in his left knee during a spring football practice. The injury was a shock to the Wildcats’ 2012 leading receiver at first. “I didn’t want to believe it,” Hill said of his knee injury. “The trainers had told me it was an ACL [tear]. … I was kind of doing my own thing, saying, ‘No, you don’t know what you’re talking about. I didn’t tear my ACL.’” However, two days later Hill said he had come to accept the situation and was ready to make sure he was the best receiver he could be. But first, he needed to do it from the sidelines. “It gave me a coach’s perspective,” Hill said.

The Wildcats beat the Cardinal 12-3 in five innings on Saturday, which is Arizona’s 17th mercy rule win at Hillenbrand Stadium. Arizona women’s tennis swept a couple of matches against ranked teams over the weekend to improve its home record to 13-0. The Wildcats beat No. 30 Utah 7-0 and No. 73 Colorado 5-2. Arizona baseball won its first Pac-12 series at Utah over the weekend. The Wildcats lost the opener, 7-3, but then tied the series by scoring five runs in the 10th inning in Saturday’s game. The Wildcats won the series with a 5-2 triumph Sunday. Both UConn basketball teams made it to the NCAA national championship game. The men’s team was a surprise — it was a No. 7 seed — but the women’s team was an undefeated (39-0) No. 1 seed.

FOOTBALL FROM PAGE 8
never crossed his mind, and from the day he accepted his fate to the day he announced he was returning to Tucson, the now soon-to-be redshirt senior said he was committed to helping the Wildcats. One of the teammates he has reached out to help is injured running back Jared Baker. Baker, a redshirt junior who is unable to speak to the media while his injury persists, didn’t see much game action playing behind All-American Ka’Deem Carey and senior running back Daniel Jenkins. But on a typical kick return versus ASU on Nov. 30, Baker tore his ACL and was done for the season, and done for any spring football practice. Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday after practice that Baker hasn’t participated in any drills this spring, but that because the injury happened in November Baker is expected to be healthy by the fall,
CHAMPIONSHIP FROM PAGE 8
missed the NCAA tournament last year because of its academic performance. On the court the Huskies were 20-10 in 2012-13. UConn had stability — no one transferred when it was banned from the postseason last year — and Kentucky had a stable of fabulous recruits. Arizona has both, and it won’t be long until its fans are taking to the streets on championship night again — and not for something like the Elite Eight. Remember, Arizona lost two NBA Draft picks in 2013, Solomon Hill and Grant Jerrett, another starter in Mark Lyons, key glue-guy Kevin Parrom and reserve big man Angelo Chol. The Wildcats reloaded with a top-five recruiting class in 2013, according to ESPN. Right now ESPN ranks Arizona’s 2014 class No. 9. While Arizona was ranked No. 1 for eight weeks, the familiar refrain from most college hoops analysts was that there was not a dominant team this season.
if not the summer. And with Carey leaving for the NFL and Jenkins having exhausted his eligibility, this fall is the first time Baker has a legitimate chance to start. “Guys work out so hard in the summer it’s not the end of the world,” Rodriguez said of Baker’s missing spring practice. “He’s one of the hardest workers we’ve got at the position.” The Wildcats’ co-offensive coordinator, Rod Smith, echoed those statements. “He’s a monster in the weight room,” Smith said. As for Hill, he’s stepped in and become a mentor for Baker. Hill said he talks to Baker and does all he can to make sure Baker stays positive. “It’s awesome being able to know what to say to them,” Hill said. “I’m really proud of him. He’s really mentally fought through it.”

That’s probably because the Wildcats were out of sight for most of the country, since they beat Michigan on the road in December. Arizona spent many nights on the Pac-12 Networks, missing from DirecTV subscriptions and played a bunch of late games. An 8 p.m. game in Arizona starts at 10 or 11 p.m. on the East Coast. In reality, Arizona was that dominant team. It was 21-0 with sophomore forward Brandon Ashley, but slumped to a 12-5 record when he was injured in the game against Cal. Last year an injury like that would have sent Arizona to a record more like 5-12. Head coach Sean Miller keeps strengthening the program to the point where it can handle losses like that, or losing freshman forward Aaron Gordon and junior guard Nick Johnson to the NBA. The Miller Wildcats keep creeping closer to the Final Four. It shouldn’t be long until they have their own “One Shining Moment.” — Follow James Kelley @jameskelley520

Why is it that on some nights when I drink I have a good experience and on others it’s bad?
A. depend upon whether your expectation for the night was
Really good question! Generally, good or bad experiences
met or not. Contrary to popular belief or what it may seem like among your circle of friends, not all college students drink. However, for those who do, most report a positive drinking event when they drink just to feel a little buzz, loosen up a bit, have fun, and be social. Most college students would probably agree that a bad drinking experience is when you throw up, become overly dramatic, violent, end up with regrets, injuries, get busted, drunk-text, black out, or experience alcohol poisoning. So how did you go from a good to a bad experience? We here at the Red Cup Q & A would say that it went bad because you went past your alcohol “sweet spot.” Your sweet spot is that place where all your intended positive outcomes of drinking alcohol are most likely to happen. We could easily predict that all the aforementioned negative consequences occurred after you exceeded your sweet spot. For example, no one intends to let loose a Technicolor yawn, while bowing to the porcelain god. But, when it happens, it was because you passed your sweet spot. You were no longer in control of your alcohol experience – the amount of alcohol you consumed was. Ya dig? Word!

THE DAILY WILDCAT Printing the news, sounding the alarm, and raising hell since 1899
To qualify you should be a highly motivated student with excellent communication skills and a strong desire to earn your own success. Prior sales experience and knowledge of digital media are huge plusses. You must have access to a car. Send resume and cover letter by April 24 to: Mark Woodhams, Director of Student Media, firstname.lastname@example.org
Your sweet spot is that level when you keep your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at .05% or under. So what does that look like for the average college student? For a 150 lb. male, you could drink 3.2 standard drinks over two hours and not go over your sweet spot. A 120 lb. female could drink 2.2 drinks in the same time and still remain in her sweet spot.

New ‘Captain America’ rockets to next level BY ALEX GUYTON
The Daily Wildcat
he familiarity and safety of the Marvel universe is flipped upside down in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the best Marvel movie since “Iron Man.” Steve Rogers, also known by his superhero alias of Captain America and played by Chris Evans, is becoming acquainted with modernday life after being frozen since the 1940s. He keeps a notepad handy to jot down the fads and fashions of the present day. He still works for S.H.I.E.L.D., the global law enforcement initiative headed by the eye patch-wearing Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), whose special personnel include the likes of Iron Man, Hulk and Thor. It occurs to me, as I describe the background of the cinematic Marvel universe, that there is presently no movie franchise that needs as little expositional catch-up as Marvel does. The characters and events of these Marvel movies, from all the way back in 2008’s “Iron Man” to last November’s “Thor: The Dark World,” are common knowledge. What was once — and how it does seem like a long time ago — a comic book niche is now the franchise to end all franchises. These films are seminal events; the average moviegoer is more well-versed in what a Tesseract is than a Tesla. What makes “The Winter Soldier” one of the best Marvel films so far is that it deconstructs, in two hours, what has been established over the last six years. After a shady mission to stop terrorists on a boat, Captain America begins to question the legitimacy and loyalty of Nick and his appearances. Enter a mysterious, bionic-armed assassin known only as The Winter Soldier, a foe who can go blow-forblow with Captain America and his famous shield. The Winter Soldier shows up in Washington, D.C. just around the same time S.H.I.E.L.D. senior officer Alexander Pierce spearheads Project Insight, which uses the very considerable payload of three Helicarriers to preemptively take out potential threats. Think “Minority Report,” but with more militarization and death from above. Even S.H.I.E.L.D., the paragon of virtue and stability, may be compromised from within. Can Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) be trusted? All the talk of espionage and smoke and mirrors makes this Marvel installment something more conspiracy thriller than escapist

What spring trends are you excited to try this season? Sunflowers are in right now, and crop tops. What is your go-to when getting ready in the morning? I love cutoff jean shorts with band T-shirts.

superhero flick. It shares more of its DNA with “The Bourne Ultimatum” than “Iron Man 2.” Speaking of the “Bourne” franchise, the action sequences of “The Winter Soldier” are grounded more in realism than other Marvel fare. Iron Man’s suit, Hulk’s super strength and Thor’s Mjolnir hammer are substituted for a shield that almost always seems to boomerang back to its owner. The hand-to-hand combat showdowns are shot skillfully, in a way that allows the viewer to actually interpret and keep up with the flurry of motion on screen. Everyone delivers their roles well, and returning players (Evans, Jackson, Johansson) are able to explore greater depths and nuance. Newcomer Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), is a war vet who counsels the post-traumatic stress disorder-stricken at the VA, and who has a trick or two up his sleeve. That’s not to say that the movie
entirely avoids some of the lesser trappings of action blockbusters. There is one eye-rolling scene where a minor character from the past is resurrected via some Hollywood science, and the villain’s philosophy is slightly askew. Still, its multi-layered plot with action, intrigue and humor would have been enough to elevate “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” to the status of a high-quality, but safe, Marvel movie. The risks this film takes in destroying much of what has been established place it on an even higher level.
What are you wearing today? A maxi dress from Forever 21 and a jean jacket. Why are you wearing a maxi dress? Because they’re comfortable.
What is your go-to outfit in the morning? A pair of jeans, a T-shirt and my Sperry’s.

Beer: A word that cues nostalgic memories of times with friends and the familiar grip of a cool pint glass on a hot Arizona day. We admire the taste and all the good times a cold one can trigger, but to most, the art behind the creation of our favorite brews remains a mystery. Members of the UA Arizona Home Brew Club said a good beer always tastes better when it’s earned. The small club, consisting of about 20 students, mostly engineering majors, was created by Chris Mendoza nearly three years ago and is now headed by president and beer aficionado Matt Covington. Although the club is all about beer, underage members can legally participate in the purchasing of ingredients for the brews, just not the drinking. AHBC is dedicated to teaching both the scientific and creative methods needed for brewing the most delectable drafts. At first thought, a club with “brew” in the name may seem like it should be dedicated to fine-tuning your drinking tolerance and mastering a faultless beer chug — but AHBC is focused on more than consuming. “I always say it’s about quality over quantity, Covington said. “This is not a drinking club; we focus on the creating.” Some of the students involved are considering turning their craft into a career. “Professional brewing is definitely a viable career path for us, and home brewing is a great way to get your feet wet,” vice president Jeffrey Sander said. The club has successfully created both extract and allgrain beers, but creativity comes more into play with the latter. “With all-grain brewing, you extract the sugar yourself as opposed to having it pre-extracted; therefore, you are given more flexibility with other ingredients,” Covington said. According to Covington, varying ingredients and the timing with which you bitter, flavor and aroma the beer is what allows for creative wiggle room and endless possibilities. “In all honesty, imagination is the limit,” said Covington. From the hoppy flavor of Indian Pale Ales to the rich taste of brown ales and the lightness of a saison, each beer can be slightly altered to offer a completely different taste to savor. “Some of the members are highly experienced and craft their brews with the creativity and passion that any artist would put towards their music, painting or dance,” AHBC treasurer Ryan Dormond said. Once the beer has aligned with the inspiration of the brewer, the batches can take anywhere from two to three additional weeks to complete the aging process. After

fermentation, the beer is ready to be consumed in all its is ready to be consumed. AHBC has brewed up a wide range of beers thus far, created by the gallon. The outcome of the most recent group brew session was tasty Scottish ale, Covington said. For Sander, his favorite brew was the Pilsner made through a process called decoction mesh. “We had four people trading off stirring a 15-gallon mesh for five minutes at a time, but the beer we had at the end was pretty amazing,” Sanders said. As for Dormond, he said the wort brew for football season was perfect. “It’s always a good time when you’re brewing with friends,” Dormond said. These group concoctions, as well as drafts made individually by Covington in his brew lab, are offered to other groups and clubs. “It’s not about consuming all of the beer we make. We drink for the enjoyment of tasting what is made,” Covington said.
