IN MEMORIAM Phi Gamma Delta fraternity hosts service in memory of member and UA student Michael Anderson, who died Friday



The Daily Wildcat

This Friday will mark one week since the death of Michael Anderson, a pre-business freshman who died from injuries sustained after he fell from a ventilation structure onto the roof of Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall. Anderson and his friend were climbing the tower-like structure on the roof of the residence hall when he fell, according to Sgt. Filbert Barrera, public information officer for the University of Arizona Police Department. However, it seems Anderson and his friend weren’t the first students to gain access to the roof of the residence hall. One student, a physiology freshman, said he has climbed up Colonia de la Paz before, for no reason other than to see if it was possible. “It was honestly something I did to prove that I could do it,” said the freshman, who requested to remain anonymous. “It was a completely sober action; I just wanted to know if I could.” Barrera said that he was unable to comment on how someone would gain access to the roof or if it was difficult, due to the ongoing investigation. “As far as how to get up there, I can’t really talk about that,” Barrera said. “I know that we have had cases in the past where I have caught people up there [on roofs] when I was in patrol, maybe about two years ago.” Barrera said that he believes gaining access to the roofs of campus buildings would require climbing

A center serving student veterans at the UA has expanded to include a location across Speedway Boulevard focusing on student veterans studying health sciences. The Veterans Education and Transition Services Center will hold its grand opening today at 4 p.m. inside the Arizona Health Sciences Library, where the new center is now housed. The VETS Center’s main location is in the Student Union Memorial Center. The VETS Center expansion to the area of the health sciences colleges — the College of Medicine, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Public Health and the College of Nursing — came after requests from students and faculty who are veterans, according to Cody Nicholls, assistant dean of the VETS Center. “When any of our students end

up in those AHSC colleges, they very seldom come back to this side of campus,” Nicholls said. The VETS Center aims to engage and work with student veterans during their time at the UA, Nicholls said. The center works with the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Counseling and Psych Services to provide resources to student veterans. The AHSC location opened after Veterans Day, and the grand opening ceremony will serve to make sure student veterans on the other side of Speedway Boulevard are aware that the VETS Center is open there, according to Adam Ratesic, a first-year medical student. Ratesic enlisted in the Air Force after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and served for four-and-a-half years. As a UA student, he is now co-chair of MedVets, a club for

UA researchers are experimenting with a new type of laser capable of firing highintensity bursts of light that could one day be used to divert lightning away from buildings. The powerful lasers created in the researchers’ lab have demonstrated the potential to be emitted over long distances while maintaining a focused beam, a development that could also impact the fields of radio communication and atmospheric chemistry. Maik Scheller is an assistant research professor in the UA’s College of Optical Sciences and the first author of the team’s study, recently published in Nature Photonics. He explained that, unlike the average laser pointer, which

The UA is launching the biggest fundraising campaign in its history on the UA Mall this Friday. The goal of the campaign is to raise $1 billion over the next eight years to support students, faculty, innovative programming and new facilities, according to James H. Moore, president of the UA Foundation. Gifts from donors will be managed by the UA Foundation and used to fund goals laid out in the UA’s “Never Settle” strategic plan, Moore said. “Never Settle” is the title of a strategic plan created by the UA to meet goals set by the Arizona Board of Regents. Some of these goals include increased retention rates, enrollment and research expenditures. “The strategic plan that is in place now allows our donor community to understand how they can invest in things they are passionate about,” Moore said, “but also how those very same passions fit into the university’s strategic framework.”

ASUA Senate votes to approve summer scholarship program BY Madison Brodsky The Daily Wildcat

The ASUA Senate voted to approve a summer scholarship proposal available for UA students at its meeting Wednesday. The scholarships will be available for this summer and the applications will go out today. Senators debated whether they should add additional scholarships or maintain the original three scholarships included in the proposal. “We should stick with three summer scholarships, because we have other funding requests that we should abide to,” Sen. Elana Roeder said, “so maybe the next senate class would be able to add an extra scholarship or two.” After further discussion, the three summer scholarships for summer 2014 were approved. The senate also discussed the possible expansion of the study abroad program in Israel. Roeder said she had an amazing experience when she went to Israel when she was in high school. “The UA has the second-best Hebrew program, right behind Brandeis University, which says a lot,” Roeder said. “Therefore, I feel the Jewish population at UA would be very appreciative, and it would be very nice to send them there. This expansion wouldn’t do much for the school, but it would be nice to show the Jewish student population that ASUA has their backs.” Sen. Grant Suman agreed, saying ASUA has difficulty funding a lot of these trips with its budget, but that this trip would be good for the UA. “It is a fantastic trip to fund for the experience, culture, et cetera at our school,” Suman said. The senate voted to approve the expansion for the Israel study abroad program. Lastly, a proposal for a radio grant from Suman was brought up as an informational item. The radios would help the University of Arizona Police Department communicate with the Tucson Fire Department’s PC Wind system. The radios were described as useful for the

police departments for communicating onscene conditions. For example, if the radios were contaminated with blood or a similar substance, the police department could put them into a solution and the radios would still function. The department is asking for two radios: one to use and one for backup. If the funding is not granted, it will not be able to communicate with the fire department and other police departments, because all of them had switched over as of Tuesday. Suman said the senate would like to

provide UAPD with at least one radio but cited budget concerns. “We are running a tight budget, so we would like to see what the extra pieces are about,” Suman said. “I feel that it is necessary in the immediate future, because if they can’t hear everyone, they can’t really report to anything, and we shouldn’t shy away from this issue just because of funding.” Suman said a cheaper version could be an option given their budget.

that uses a lot of upper body strength, and added that he believes he wouldn’t be physically able to climb up there. The freshman said the residence hall was incredibly easy to climb because of the way the building was designed. “The outside of the building is basically like a ladder,” he said. “The bricks are patterned so one layer is inlaid, the next layer is out, so basically it’s just steps up.” Nick Sweeton, senior director of residential education, said he does not know how one would get on the roof area of Colonia de la Paz. He added that he wants students to be aware of the resources available to cope with Anderson’s death. “Students grieve in many different ways,” Sweeton said. “We are paying attention to the community response. We encourage people to talk to their friends and parents about it and to connect with the UA resources, like the counseling center.” As far as changing the security measures of the residence hall, Sweeton said that will have to wait until the investigation is complete. “I’m certain there will be recommendations made,” Sweeton said, “and we would, of course, abide by any recommendations.” The freshman said he isn’t sure how the security of the buildings could be improved to prevent people from climbing up. “I don’t know how you would, frankly,” he said. “It’s the structure of the building itself.” UA President Ann Weaver Hart also addressed Anderson’s death at the faculty senate meeting on Monday. Hart expressed her sorrow but said she was relieved to know that, as a university, there was nothing that could have been done to alert campus officials that the two students were climbing the residence hall early that Friday morning. — Follow Adriana Espinosa @adri_eee

The University of Arizona Police Department is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding Anderson’s death.

The patio was at full capacity, including the balcony and rooftop, where many students stood to observe Anderson’s memorial service. A priest soon arrived and led the mourners in prayer shortly.

emits a continuous, low-intensity beam of light, the lasers in his lab pack the energy into a short, highintensity pulse. “[The pulse] may have the same amount of photons [as a laser pointer], but they’re compressed into a few femtoseconds … which are a millionth of a billionth of a second,” Scheller said. The pulses are so intense that they ionize atoms in the air, releasing electrons and creating a plasma channel that trails the laser burst, he said. To keep the beam from splitting apart, the researchers supply it with enough energy to create what is known as a filament. The intensity at the center of such a filament is so high that it creates a “virtual lens,” concentrating the tiny beam to the point that plasma is created. In turn, Scheller said, the energy that is lost during the creation of the plasma causes the beam to expand, or “defocus.” “There is a constant defocusing due to the electrons, which equals the focusing due to the virtual lens,” he said. Scheller added that the alternating expansion and contraction of the beam counteracts the rapid diffraction that would normally occur. Even as a “self-guiding” filament, the beam will eventually lose energy during ionization and by natural spreading, both of which limit the distance the pulse can travel. To increase distance, the team utilizes a secondary beam that wraps around the first beam. This “dress beam” gradually provides energy to the central beam, Scheller explained, leading to a tenfold increase in the

distance it can travel. In a scaled-down experiment, the team managed to stretch a filament that would normally travel a few centimeters to roughly 30 centimeters. Weibo Cheng, a graduate student in the College of Optical Sciences and co-author of the study, likened the dress beam to gasoline which “gently refuels” the primary laser. “If you want to go from Tucson to San Diego, obviously you need to stop somewhere to refuel,” he said. “That’s how it works. You use the dress beam to refuel the energy into the filament.” Although the technology is in its infancy, filament propagation could one day have applications in radio communication, remote atmospheric sensing and thunder protection, said Jerome Moloney, a professor of both optical sciences and mathematics, and a coauthor who’s been working with high-intensity lasers for more than 10 years. “If you can create a plasma channel that is long enough and lasts long enough, you might be able to direct a lightning strike,” he said. Like a lightning rod or a copper wire, the thin column of plasma is electrically conductive, said Kenneth Cummins, a research professor in the department of atmospheric sciences. “The ionized air produced by the laser produces a preferred ionized channel, very much like a [lightning rod],” he said. “It will direct it through that channel and then safely through some grounding mechanism.” The team’s laser research is funded by a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense.

Dystopia lit shows us better future BY Brittany Rudolph The Daily Wildcat


hen I was younger, I wanted nothing more than to slay vampires, demons and the forces of darkness. Perhaps I should have dreamt about cell phones and Hollister (a middle school girl’s biggest luxuries), but instead, I wanted to fight evil. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my hero, and I didn’t just look up to her. I wanted to be her. In a world where nothing was certain, Buffy remained cool, calm and collected. She manipulated authority figures and dismissed the rules, conquered seemingly insurmountable obstacles and demon-spawn enemies. She did it all with a flip of her perfectly unruffled hair and the delivery of a pithy one-liner. Recently, there’s been a resurgence of strong, female characters like Buffy tackling difficult odds, often in dystopian worlds. From Katniss in “The Hunger Games” to Tris in “Divergent,” women in worst-case-scenario universes have become common. While it’s easy to roll your eyes when you see yet another woman kicking her away across a screen, we shouldn’t forget the — ironically uplifting — value of dystopian media. Dana Stevens, Slate’s movie critic, explained some of the appeal of consuming dystopian media in a recent article. “[Young adult] dystopias externalize the turmoil that’s already taking place in adolescent minds, hearts, and bodies,” Stevens writes. “The social, interpersonal, and biological phenomena that define teenage life — competition and jealousy, anxiety about exclusion and belonging, shifting alliances, first crushes, wet dreams — are codified and, in some way, dignified by their transmutation into fiction.” I may no longer be in middle school, but there’s still something oddly satisfying about seeing characters solve problems that are much more difficult than even real-world struggles. Regardless of age, we can see ourselves within these stories. As college students, we’re past adolescence, but obstacles and issues never really disappear. We are still learning about life and discovering who we want to be. Buffy routinely faced the apocalypse, but we’ve all been there. If anything, as adults, we’re more acquainted with what it means to suffer now than we were five or eight years ago. Still, seeing worlds much worse than our own, in which monsters run rampant and the government mandates battles between youth, provides relief. Though our lives may be relatively ordinary, our problems can still feel extraordinarily hard. Our obstacles may be fights with friends and rising tuition, rather than monsters or oppressive regimes. However, when we see others flawlessly executing takedowns and railing against corrupt authority, we start to believe we can, too. We may have problems, but we don’t have fictional characters’ exact problems, and for that we ought to feel grateful. Seeing a character successfully overcome astronomical odds also reminds us that we, too, can persevere. We’re inspired to emulate those we see on the big screen and take action. We’re not obsessed with books like “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” because we’re forever 13 years old and uncool. We like them because they reflect our lives on a larger scale. The physical demons Buffy fights symbolize ordinary demons — like heartbreak and rejection — that plague us all. This type of media shows us that it’s OK, even celebrated, to be different. They make us feel that with hard work, we can be extraordinary, too. We can overcome anything. These lessons, while particularly appealing during the middle school years, are important for everyone. In the midst of our own hectic lives and flawed world, we want to see the good guy win. If you go to see “Divergent” this weekend, there’s a chance you may be surrounded by hordes of middleschoolers, but don’t let that deter you. Seeing characters conquer situations much worse than our own is oddly uplifting, and there’s no better time for it. After all, finals are only a few weeks away.

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for being a minor in possession of alcohol on April 6. Two UAPD officers found the student passed out on the floor in a sitting area in Villa del Puente Residence Hall. The Tucson Fire Department woke the student using a sternum rub. He displayed several signs of extreme intoxication, including red watery eyes and slurred speech. The student had also soiled himself. The student had many mood swings while speaking to the UAPD officers. He told them where he lived but flipped off the officers and shook his head at other questions, including when he was asked where he had been drinking and how much he had drunk. The officers and TFD escorted the student back to his room, but he was very confrontational. TFD medically cleared the student and left, and the UAPD officers advised him that he would be contacted by the Dean of Students Office. While they were speaking, the student got up and cursed at the officers, yelling, “Get … out of my room!” He continued cursing at the officers until they left. As they were walking away, the student came into the hallway from his room and made derogatory remarks at the officers while flipping them off. The officers waited until the student went back inside his room and closed the door.

A non-UA affiliated man was issued a six-month exclusionary order for all UA libraries due to poor personal hygiene on April 7. The Library Operations Supervisor contacted the University of Arizona Police Department when he noticed a man at a library computer with bad personal hygiene in violation of UA library policy. The supervisor told the officers the man had been in the library in the past and had always been asked to leave because of his bad hygiene. The man had always left when asked to do so, but the supervisor wanted further action taken. The UAPD officers approached the man and could notice his foul smell from 20-25 feet away. The officers advised the man about the library’s personal hygiene policy, and the man said he was not able to shower often. He also told the officers he had an expired exclusionary order. The officers then gave the man an exclusionary order and advised him that any contact with a UA library could result in arrest for trespassing.

Secondary comes first Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez remains concerned about defensive backfield despite returning four starters in the secondary






ARIZONA SAFETY JARED TEVIS 38 hits Boston College running back Andre Williams, while Arizona receiver David Richards sacks former Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig during the AdvoCare V100 Bowl game at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31. Tevis is one of four returning starters in the Wildcats’ secondary.

BY ROBERTO PAYNE The Daily Wildcat

The necessity of quality play from the secondary is at an all-time high. More and more teams are running spread offenses and throwing the ball deep downfield. Having a reliable secondary can disguise other team flaws and give defensive coordinators the freedom to experiment with their play-calling. “We’re like brothers,” redshirt senior safety Jared Tevis said. “We’re trying to be the leaders of the team and have the guys rally around us.” In Arizona’s 3-3-5 formation under defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Jeff Casteel, the Wildcats have one more secondary starter than a traditional 3-4 or 4-3 defense that has four secondary starters. Thus, the extra defensive

back gives the secondary a bit of leeway to gamble at times. Luckily for Casteel, the 2014 Arizona football team has four of the five secondary starters from last season returning. That kind of experience could pay major dividends throughout the season. Despite the returning starters, head coach Rich Rodriguez said he’s not overly excited about the depth at cornerback and safety for the upcoming season. “We’re not as deep as I like to be, particularly with playing a five [defensive back] system,” Rodriguez said, “but they’ve been moving around and disguising things pretty well. We’ve got to get some competition in the fall with these guys, but we have some experience back there.” The experience largely comes from Tevis, redshirt senior Jonathan

McKnight, redshirt senior Jourdon Grandon and senior Tra’Mayne Bondurant. The quartet combined for 282 of Arizona’s 923 total tackles last season. Considering the Pac-12 Conference had eight players throw for over 2,900 yards last season and the majority of them are returning, it’s easy to see why Arizona needs more depth in the secondary. Highlighting the returnees are Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, both of whom should be on the shortlist of Heisman candidates for next year. Providing that depth shouldn’t be the problem it has been in recent years, as there are 18 other defensive backs currently on the roster. The problem will be finding out which of those 18 players are ready to take on a role in limited

snaps. Junior safety William Parks is the only other returning secondary player to have more than 15 tackles last season, and he should be a frontrunner for some of that playing time. As the 2014 spring football game approaches this Saturday, expect some of the secondary players to make a concerted effort to separate themselves. “We’re doing this on TV; everybody is going to be watching,” Bondurant said. “We have to showcase what can do and showcase what we have behind us. People up and coming are going to have chances to show what they can do.”

Arizona baseball won its final game at ASU’s Packard Stadium, 10-9, on Wednesday night in Tempe, Ariz. The Wildcats (15-19, 4-8 Pac-12 Conference) evened the season series with the nonconference victory against their rival ASU (1713, 7-5). Freshman lefty Evan Hebert (1-0) earned his first career college win for the UA and provided the team with a pair of shutout innings. Sophomore right-hander Jordan Aboites (3-2) suffered the loss for the Sun Devils. The game lasted over four hours, mainly because Arizona used seven different pitchers and six different arms went to work for ASU. Both starting pitchers in the game lasted a pedestrian 2.2 innings. Wildcat freshman Morgan Earman (0-0) let in three earned runs, while his righty counterpart Seth Martinez (2-0) allowed four to cross the plate. Arizona’s offense came mostly in small doses throughout the game, but it was consistent nonetheless. The only innings the Wildcats didn’t score were the top of the second, seventh and ninth. ASU’s offense came in large clumps. The Sun Devils enjoyed a three-run third and a four-run fifth and scored twice in the bottom half of the sixth as well. Arizona sophomore center fielder Scott Kingery had one of his best games in an Arizona uniform ever on Wednesday. He went 3-for-4 at the dish, scored a trio of runs and drove in another two. Kingery also hit his first career home run in the game. Kingery, Bobby Dalbec, Trent Gilbert and Michael Hoard are the lone three Wildcats to have left the ballpark this season.

Cordes conquers NCAAs again BY MARK ARMAO

The Daily Wildcat

Kevin Cordes began swimming in a summer league in his hometown of Naperville, Ill., when he was 6 years old. By the time he started his freshman year at Neuqua Valley High School, he had already proven himself to be a talented breaststroke swimmer. But another high school standout largely stole the spotlight from Cordes. Matt Elliott, who now swims for Florida, beat Cordes in three out of the four state championships in which they competed against each other. “It was a great rivalry and really pushed us to take it to the next level, because we knew the other swimmer was going to do the same,” Cordes said. After high school, Cordes took a number of recruiting trips to different schools across the country. He settled on Arizona, saying that he “fell in love with the team.” Since his freshman year with the Wildcats, Cordes has made a habit of shattering records, many of which he set himself. He is the American, NCAA and U.S. Open record-holder in both the 100-yard and 200y breaststroke events. After going undefeated in individual events this season, Cordes was named NCAA Swimmer of the Year. Measuring in at a long-limbed 6-foot5, Cordes said his physical build has a lot

to do with his success in the pool, noting that his oversized feet allow him to “grab a bunch of water” with each kick. However, he said it’s his feel for the stop-and-go motion of the breaststroke that accounts for his unprecedented speed. “It’s unlike any other stroke,” he said. “It’s a really feel-driven stroke — you have to be flowing the whole time.” Head coach Rick DeMont called Cordes an anomaly. Along with his “incredible physical attributes,” DeMont said that Cordes’ mental approach to swimming is second to none. “He thinks like a champion,” DeMont said. “He’s very competitive and just wants to get better.” In addition to constantly altering the record books, Cordes is rewriting the book on breaststroke strategy, DeMont said. Over the last six to eight years, DeMont said, the trend h a s

been to take more and more strokes per lap. Cordes

cuts against the grain by taking fewer strokes and spending more time in the “glide position.” “Breaststroke has gone from adding more strokes and higher tempo to now, where he’s taking it back the other way,” DeMont said. Next season will be Cordes’ last as a Wildcat, but as one of the best swimmers in the country, he is expected to make a bid for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Six-

time Olympic medalist Matt Grevers, who trains with the team, said that as a collegiate swimmer, Cordes is one of the best he’s ever seen. “No one wins by that much at NCAAs in a [100y event],” he said. “It’s an incredible thing to watch him swim.” However, Grevers said the transition from collegiate swimming in the U.S. to international competition is difficult due to the difference in pool length.

Most of Cordes’ races this season were held over a 25-yard “short course.” At the Olympics, each length of the pool is 50 meters. Because of this difference, Grevers said that Cordes will lose some of the edge he gains with his great underwater skills, such as his turn and his pullout, which is the first stroke he takes after diving into the pool. “Short-course swimming and long-course swimming are very different,” Grevers said. “He’s so long and he hits every turn so well and has such great pullouts, [but] a lot of his best advantages go away when it’s Olympic-style swimming.” Cordes acknowledges that he has leagues of work left to do. “The ultimate goal, looking ahead, is 2016,” he said, “but right now, I’m focusing on this summer and what I need to accomplish to take those next steps.” A week after dominating the national field at the NCAA Championships, Cordes was back in the pool, training for next season. “I took a week off just to enjoy it and reflect on the season, and now we’re back at it,” he said. “It’s been amazing, and I’m not done yet.”

Oregon snatches top spot from Bruins BY ROBERTO PAYNE The Daily Wildcat

1. No. 1 Oregon (34-5, 8-1 Pac-12)

After weeks of maintaining a top-5 national ranking, the Oregon Ducks took two out of three against the former No. 1, UCLA, this past weekend. With the series victory, the Ducks jumped from No. 3 to No. 1 in the nation. It’s the first time in program history Oregon has been No. 1.

2. No. 3 UCLA Bruins (34-4, 9-3)

The Bruins lost their hold on the No. 1 spot in the nation by losing to Oregon last weekend. The Oregon series saw UCLA lose consecutive games for the first time this season.

3. No. 6 ASU (35-6, 9-3)

The Sun Devils swept their threegame series against California this weekend to maintain their No. 6 national ranking. An upcoming threegame series against Utah puts ASU in position to take advantage of a Utah pitching staff that has an ERA of 4.66, which is last in the conference.

4. No. 9 Arizona (32-8, 7-5)

The combination of moving up from No. 10 to No. 9 in the nation and sweeping Stanford in a three-game series should give Arizona a boost this week. The Wildcats look to improve upon their 4-5 road record as they hit the road to take on California this weekend.

5. No. 10 Washington (22-10, 2-6)

Washington has been off since April 1 and dropped one spot in the national rankings, to No. 10. The Huskies have a very winnable threegame series against Stanford looming.

6. California (20-14, 3-4)

Despite being unranked and losing three straight to ASU, the California Golden Bears move up one spot in this week’s power rankings. If that doesn’t tell you how much the bottom half of the conference is struggling, then I don’t know what will.

7. Stanford (24-14, 1-8)

Fresh off being swept in a threegame series against Arizona, Stanford dropped out of the national rankings



The Beavers lost two out of three to Utah this past weekend. OSU hosts No. 1 Oregon this weekend in what will be a rough rivalry week for Oregon State.

Freshman utility player Dalbec was 2-for-4 at the plate, with a run scored and a couple RBIs. He also tossed a scoreless bottom of the ninth to tally his second save of 2014. The very top of Arizona’s lineup carried it throughout the game. Kevin Newman, Gilbert and Kingery combined for half of the team’s 14 hits, scored six of its 10 runs and also had a total three runs batted in. Next the Wildcats will return home to face No. 22 UCLA (18-13, 6-3) for a three-game Pac-12 series. First pitch from Hi Corbett Field on Friday is scheduled for 7 p.m.

and faces a solid Washington team this weekend. The Cardinal needs to make sure it isn’t chopped down this weekend.

8. Utah (16-16, 3-8)

Utah went 4-1 over the past week to get back up to the .500 mark. However, the Utes will likely fall below .500 after this weekend’s series against ASU.

9. Oregon State (13-20, 3-7)

Breaking the Sound Barrier The intellectual breakthroughs in aerodynamics that made it possible John Anderson - Professor Emeritus, Aerospace Engineering; University of Maryland - Curator, Aerodynamics; National Air & Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution On Oct. 14, 1947, the small but beautiful Bell X-1 became the first piloted airplane to fly faster than sound, with Captain Chuck Yeager at the controls. This flight was made possible by a century of breakthroughs in the understanding of high-speed aerodynamics. This presentation is for a general audience as well as engineers and scientists. It tells one of the most exciting stories in the history of aerodynamics.

The risk of live-in relationships BY Julie Huynh

The Daily Wildcat

If you’re dating someone, it’s a good idea to move in together at some point, right? Previous couples’ cohabitation research has found evidence to the contrary, such as correlations between premarital cohabitation and divorce, lower dedication to the spouse in men and generally lower levels of marital satisfaction. Despite these trends, cohabitation is becoming increasingly common and more accepted. Discussing why you are living together is important in avoiding the pitfalls of cohabitation, said Melissa Curran, an associate professor in the UA’s John and Doris Norton School of Family Consumer Sciences. Curran’s research focuses on relationships. “You usually decide to get married. This is not necessarily the case for cohabiters,” she said, adding that many of the problems arise because the couple “slides” into cohabitation. Curran explained this sliding phenomenon with an example: One person in a relationship starts spending one night a week at their significant other’s place, then that person starts leaving a toothbrush or clothing there. Gradually, one night a week turns into four or five, and so on. Researchers find that couples in these situations often have difficulty pinpointing exactly when they began living together, Curran said. “Decide about cohabiting before you’re

Despite contemporary research suggesting premarital couple cohabitation may hurt more relationships than it helps, many couples still choose to live together.

actually living together,” she said. “Actively talk to each other. You’re going to move in together. Why? What are the main reasons for it?” It helps if the people in the couple are in it for the same reasons, she said, such as “love and wanting to spend time together.” Other, less romantic, motivations for moving in together include convenience and economic reasons, she said. Many couples move in together to test the relationship before marriage. But that strategy

isn’t necessarily beneficial, said Chris Segrin, head of the department of communication, whose research focuses on interpersonal relationships. “If people are engaged first and then they cohabit, their outcome as a married couple is no different from the people that never cohabited,” he said. The reason many young couples live together is because they want to “postpone marriage for a longer period of time but not

to postpone being in a close, marriage-like relationship,” he said. While many college couples continue to shun the experts and move in together, other students are hesitant to take that step. Emily Leones, a UA senior studying computer science and materials science and engineering, said that she thinks people should take their time when it comes to moving in together. “I don’t think cohabitation is something to rush into, and I definitely don’t believe that it should be pursued solely for economical reasons,” she said. “There has to be more drive behind it. Especially since couples can get caught in a year-long lease but then … break up, and then what happens?” Many college cohabiters, though, are happy to reside with their significant other. UA chemistry senior Sean Lambert and biochemistry senior Erica Schwencer, for example, are making it work. “As far as commitment goes, personally, I have never felt closer to my girlfriend,” said Lambert, adding that, although they argue from time to time, they find ways to reconcile their differences and avoid future conflict. “At the end of the day, we say our apologies, cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie,” Schwencer said. “And most importantly, we still love each other.” — Follow Julie Huynh @DailyWildcat

Ancient tree mistakenly killed in research blunder BY Michaela Kane The Daily Wildcat

Don Currey was a graduate student at the University of North Carolina working on his master’s thesis about glacial movements in the Great Basin when he stumbled upon a very old-looking tree. Currey knew that counting the tree rings could help him get an approximate time frame for glacial movements in the basin, so he had the tree cut down and took it back to his lab, where he counted the rings and realized he had made a very big mistake. The bristlecone pine he had chosen to cut down was almost 5,000 years old. This was the fate of the Prometheus tree. When Currey cut into the bark of the Prometheus tree in 1964, he was chopping down the world’s oldest known tree at the time. Currey was researching the trails of sediments, called moraines, left behind from glacial movements. There was a specific moraine in the Snake Mountains that Currey was especially interested in researching, said Matt Salzer, a research associate at the UA tree-ring lab, which now houses pieces of the Prometheus tree.

“He figured that the moraine must have been there at least as long as the tree had been there,” said Salzer. “So he asked permission from the Forest Service to cut the tree down so he could count how many rings were there, and then he would know how long the moraine had been there.” According to Salzer, the Forest Service agreed to let Currey cut down the tree, despite the fact that many people recognized that the tree was very old. A crew was dispatched, and instead of drilling into the tree for a sample, the ancient tree was felled. After he brought the tree back to his lab, Currey counted the rings to determine the age of the moraine. It was then that he realized he accidentally killed the oldest known tree. While there was no way to fix his mistake, Currey’s research did highlight the importance of tree rings and tree-ring research, known as dendrochronology. The field, which was pioneered at the UA in 1937 by Andrew Douglass, is a multifaceted science that allows researchers to use tree rings to investigate climate changes, date archaeological sites or even determine when forest fires occurred. Through dendrochronology, researchers

can use frost lines in tree rings to get an idea of when significant environmental events occurred, Salzer said. Forest fires also leave their mark on tree rings, allowing scientists to understand periods of past forest fires as well as giving them insight on how to manage future fires. Other researchers use dendrochronology to aid in resource management. Ramzi Touchan, a research professor at the lab, used treering chronology to track periods of drought in the Mediterranean to create climatic reconstruction. “If we can use proxy records like tree rings, where we can have a tree-ring chronology that goes back 200 or 300 years, then that will help to develop climatic reconstruction,” Touchan said. “That will help us study the climate — looking at the frequency and distribution of drought over time.” Although the Prometheus tree helped Currey determine the age of the moraine, many researchers are adamant that the fate of the tree could have been avoided. “Had he taken the time to come to this laboratory and ask questions, he probably wouldn’t have ever cut the tree down because

he wouldn’t have needed to,” said Rex Adams, a senior research specialist at the lab. “He just didn’t really understand how to sample.”
