Student visits home after war’s end Undergraduate with Libyan roots sees country for the first time upon Gadhafi’s overthrow By Amer Taleb FOR




verybody in the tiny office with David Shellouff had a gun — except for him. As he sat in the middle of them, without a weapon and exhausted from his 20-hour van ride from Egypt to the Libyan border, he knew that unless he did something incredible — or crazy — it was unlikely that the Libyan checkpoint soldiers who were questioning him would let an American cross into their country. So he took a risk. “I rolled up my sleeve, showed them my ‘Free Libya’ bracelet and said Libya Alhurra (Libya the free). They went nuts,” Shellouff said, smiling as he thumbed through the 600 photos he took on the trip. “The major came around, hugged me and said ‘Welcome home my son. Welcome to your country.’” Shellouff, a Libyan-American and history senior, had never set foot in his father’s homeland before traveling there last winter break. Safety concerns delayed his trip for decades. After his grandfather died a few years ago, Shellouff said he promised himself that if the opportunity to visit the land of his ancestors ever presented itself, he’d jump on it. The toppling of Moammar Gadhafi’s government last September provided him with just that opportunity. “People were telling me I was crazy. I guess I didn’t care that there had just been a revolution,” he said. “I’m an American, but Libya is home, too. And I refused to be scared of home.” He took a plane to Egypt and a shuttle to neighboring Libya. The shuttle, Shellouff said, looked like a Dodge Caravan and was packed

like a can of sardines. Shortly after they left, the van broke down, adding six more hours to his trip. “Me and the other people just sat on the side of the road for hours,” he said. “I spoke

my terrible Arabic, I listened to their terrible English, and we had a great time.” After the soldiers let him into Libya, Shellouff’s uncle picked him up and they headed toward the city of Benghazi, where his

family is from. They took a detour and visited a set of Greek and Roman ruins. As he wandered through the remnants of the ancient empires, dressed in “American clothes” and sporting a Detroit Tigers baseball cap, he said he felt connected to the antiquated civilizations. “I’m a history major so I’m totally digging all this stuff,” he said. “There was no gate or entrance. People just live among this beautiful untouched part of history. It’s amazing. You want to have a picnic in the middle of Apollo’s temple? Go right ahead.” Assuming Libya’s new leaders keep their promise to expunge the old authoritarian style of government and replace it with one that grants citizens and tourists more freedoms, they could convert their Hellenic history into future financial profits, he said. The ancient ruins scattered across the country coupled with its Mediterranean coast would enable Libya to become a tourist hub and energize its battered economy. “Instead of relying on oil and all the other crap, show the world what Libya could be,” he said. “It can be such beautiful place.” Shellouff’s adventure was split between visiting relatives and seeing the country. He said visiting the katiba military compound, where rebels and Gadhafi loyalists fought for control of Benghazi, is one of the more powerful memories of his trip, for reasons both uplifting and tragic. For years, the katiba compound housed torture machines that terrorized political prisoners.

Despite facing extreme budget cuts, the College of Pharmacy’s Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center has earned recertification for the next five years. Certification aims to ensure each poison center in the country adheres to the same quality standards. This includes taking calls 24 hours per day and ensuring that staff members get continuing education on poison and drug-related issues. The college’s center answers more than 150 calls per day from citizens and health care professionals seeking advice from UA experts about poisons, drugs and venomous creatures, according to Keith Boesen, director of the center. “Recertification is vital to us,” Boesen said in a press release from the center. “Our certification ensures our callers get the high level of care they deserve.” The recertification came after the center’s budget was cut significantly. State cuts in 2008 and federal cuts in 2011 slashed operating funds for all of the nation’s 57 poison control centers. Government sources and private donors fund about 50 percent of the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center’s operating costs, though the College of Pharmacy can pick up roughly 50 percent of its funding if




The UA’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera took this photo of a dried lava flow, which created a spitting image of an elephant’s head. The photo, taken on the surface of Mars, has since gone viral on the Internet.

Mars lava flow image inflames space lovers By Robert J. Boumis DAILY WILDCAT

An image taken by the UA’s HiRISE camera has gone viral. The image, which resembles an elephant’s head, was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment and has appeared on news sites like Discovery News,, and Yahoo! News. The “elephant’s head” is actually the edge of a vast lava flow in Elysium Planitia, a plain on the surface of Mars. In addition to shaping the

elephant’s trunk and eye, it also shows what could be the animal’s forehead and ear. The lava flow happened over years or decades, relatively quickly in geological time. The image is also upside down relative to most earthly mapping conventions, as the image is “north side down.” It shows an area about 5 kilometers across and 300 kilometers above the surface. The natural formation is an example of “pareiodlia,” a situation where the human

Pair of professors get distinguished awards for research, teaching skills By Yara Askar Daily Wildcat

Two UA professors were awarded for their outstanding ability to teach, conduct research and mentor undergraduates all at the same time. Judith Bronstein, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, and Paul Blowers, an associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering have been both named the 2012 University Distinguished Professors.

Judith Bronstein

As an ecology and evolutionary biology professor, Bronstein decided to focus her research on the cooperation in nature and look specifically at the relationship between animals and plants. Bronstein compares people’s dependence on the ecosystem with the needs of the ecosystem to find out how plants and animals can best coexist. “It’s neat to take what I know from us as humans and take that to inform our understanding of nature as a whole,” she said. “You start to see patterns that no one has seen and I am trying to pull the whole thing together.” Bronstein’s lab is open to all students, regardless of their GPA. Her teaching helps students evaluate evidence to understand how interactions function due to human change in the landscape. Because of funding cuts, Bronstein is in her last year of directing a $3 million, five-year program called Biodiversity from Molecules to Eco-

systems. The program, funded by the National Science Foundation, has allowed 52 graduate students to bring their knowledge about ecology, evolution, biodiversity and conservation into Tucson’s public schools. These students help educate local students. “More of our students want to teach and they have a social commitment to their faculty,” Bronstein said, “and the students want to bring their outreach expertise into the classrooms.” Bronstein is working on research that aims to answer the question, “When you cooperate with others, when do you cheat and how do you sense that you are being cheated to then dissolve the relationship?” She also became the first female editor-in-chief of the American Naturalist Journal in 120 years.

Paul Blowers

“Shocked” was the word that Blowers used to describe how he felt upon hearing of the recognition. Blowers said there are many approaches to a successful academic career, but this is different from others. “If I teach something in a way that I don’t like, I reengineer it and redesign it,” Blowers said. “I reconfigure the room and the technology to make it better.” When Blowers was initially searching for a job as a professor, he applied to 120 universities. Because he had no interest in the UA, he said, he scheduled his interview with them first for practice. But by the end of the interview, he realized that the UA would best fit his career. When his son was still young, Blowers said he

gave lectures with him in a chest carrier. “Most of the faculty in my department does research, they teach, have families and enjoy their hobbies,” Blowers said. “It’s not like you can only do one thing, and that’s when I realized I can do it all at the UA.” Blowers also received the Five Star Faculty Award, an honor given by students, in addition to the Leicester and Kathryn Sherrill Creative Teaching Award, given by the UA Foundation. The UA College of Engineering named Blowers a da Vinci Circle fellow in 2010, a two-year recognition with a $10,000 prize for aiding undergraduate research. A panel of philanthropists pick two students and one faculty winner for the award, and Blowers was chosen over 124 College of Engineering faculty members. Jennifer Ramin, a sophomore studying chemical and environmental engineering, is working closely with Blowers on lifecycle analysis of algae biofuels. “Working with Blowers is very empowering because he gives you something within your reach to work on and sets you loose, and then occasionally he checks up to adjust your path,” Ramin said. Blowers said he is interested in all things related to sustainability. He is also looking into which chemical engineering principles can predict certain environmental impacts, as well as the global warming potential of certain chemicals. “My motivation will always be to be a better teacher, but now the challenges have become more internal set,” Blowers said. “I have done everything I can in a classroom as best as I can.”

Trial starts for Breivik, confessed killer in July’s shooting spree in Norway documents and statements since the killings. Through his lawyer, Geir Lippestad, he has said he was sorry he “didn’t go further” to kill more than the 77 victims. In long-winded, rambling political essays on the Internet he has proclaimed himself a knight on a crusade against what he sees as Norway’s “cultural suicide” and expressed anti-feminist views along with his hatred for Norway’s Labor government, which supports both immigration and multiculturalism. On Monday, he listened impassively as prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh listed the 77 victims and the manner of their death in an hour-long statement. Svein Holden, also speaking for the prosecution, then gave the court an account of Breivik’s past life and his fascination with extreme right-wing politics. The court was shown photographs of Breivik’s tiny bedroom and the remote farmhouse where he stockpiled weapons and explosives. In other photos, Breivik posed in a self-styled military uniform, holding an automatic rifle and sporting medals and badges among them one reading, “Multiculti (sic) Traitor Hunting Permit.” The court saw and heard of his allegiance to the Knights Templar, his version of a militant Christian religious order that no longer exists, and was shown Breivik’s own 12-minute propaganda film

Mcclatchy tribune

LONDON — Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to killing 77 people in a rampage last July, went on trial Monday in Oslo for Norway’s worst criminal episode since World War II. The 33-year-old right-wing extremist has admitted to slaying 69 young people gathered for an annual Labor Party political camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya on July 22 after killing eight other people by detonating a homemade bomb that destroyed a government building in the center of the Norwegian capital. Breivik appeared calm and defiant as he entered the courtroom dressed in a dark suit and wearing handcuffs. He surveyed the ranks of media and public packed inside the courtroom and smiled. Family members and survivors of the attacks were in the public sector, separated from the defendant by thick glass partitions. After his handcuffs were removed he gave a raised-fist fascist style salute before sitting down and giving a brief statement, saying: “I do not recognize the Norwegian courts. ... You have received your mandate from political parties which support multiculturalism.” He went on to say he acknowledged the acts but claimed he carried them out “in self defense.” Breivik’s antagonism to Islam, Muslim immigrants and multiculturalism has been aired in

UA graduates Caleb Tennenbaum and Tom Smallwood created Pest ID Pro, an iPhone application that allows users to take a photo of an insect to get help identifying it. A user took this photo of a household insect for the creators to name.

Alumni develop app to ID pests By Kaleb Stephens Daily Wildcat

When they met in a technology ethics class, Caleb Tennenbaum and Tom Smallwood didn’t know they would create an iPhone app to help users identify household insects. The May 2011 graduates ended up conceptualizing and developing “ Pest ID Pro,” an app now offered by Arizona Pest Control. The app allows users to take a picture of an insect in order to identify it. Smallwood, who graduated with a degree in computer science, was a senior when he developed the app using Tennebaum’s idea. Smallwood is currently teaching iPhone operating systems development courses at the UA, and Tennenbaum is the company’s marketing director. “I came up with the idea for the app because it was a new, exciting and simple service that would be useful to customers,” said Tennenbaum, who graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in marketing. Most application development goes into games, but Tennenbaum said he wanted to use the technology in a more practical way. After exchanging ideas in class, the first version of the app was launched on April 11, 2011. Pest ID Pro is offered for free through the Apple App Store.

Users can send a photo from their iPhone’s gallery or take a picture of the pest while the app is open, Tennenbaum said. After uploading the photo, entomologists from Arizona Pest Control identify the bug within 24 hours. App users then receive an email with the identification of the insect in addition to Arizona Pest Control’s advised method of dealing with the possible infestation. App users have already captured several rare pests on camera. One user managed to snap a picture of a trapdoor spider’s burrow. The trapdoor spider, which is fairly large, is closely related to the tarantula. This spider is considered to be rare because it can hide itself so well. Another rare pest that Tennenbaum had not encountered before the app’s development is the greenhouse camel cricket. This cricket prefers artificial environments and is an opportunistic feeder, he said. It feeds on various plants, which could cause large scale damage. After the first version of the app was downloaded more than 4,500 times in its first year, Smallwood helped the company create an updated version. The new app, which was uploaded March 13, has more features and a more user-friendly interface, Smallwood said. The app currently has a five-star rating from users.


Within katiba was one of Gadhafi’s houses. It was three stories tall and had a dozen bathrooms. When Shellouff got there, he picked up chunks of rocks and hurled them at the building, a rundown structure that hardly looked like it used to belong to the most powerful man in Libya. Shellouff walked back and forth across the compound, listening as his uncle described how the battle unfolded. “It was the staging ground where average, everyday

Libyans got together and started a revolution,” he said. “The person who set the whole thing off was a man who put explosives in his car and drove it into the front gate of katiba. He gave his life for Benghazi.” A few weeks later, it was time to head back to the UA. He said his goodbyes and promised that the next he came, he’d bring his father, Mohmed, who hasn’t been home in more than 30 years. “The spirit and hope of the Libyan people is what stayed with me the most,” Shellouff said. “I’ve never seen the desire for a better future like that anywhere in my life. Maybe it was just a special time to be there because the revolution had just ended, but for me, it doesn’t get more amazing than that.”

making references to the group. During the showing, which was not broadcast outside the court, Breivik was seen to burst into tears as he watched. Holden also gave a detailed account with film and CCTV footage of Breivik’s actions on July 22, including recordings of the shots he fired on the island and his own calls to the Oslo police to announce his deeds during his 80-minute attack. Although initially deemed insane after his surrender to police and subsequent arrest, Breivik has recently been reassessed and judged to be sane. The most recent evaluators warned that there was a “high risk of repetition of violence.” Under Norwegian law he faces a maximum penalty of 21 years in prison, which can be extended to life. When Breivik was read the charges of crimes of terrorism and murder last month, Holden told reporters they were “crimes of a dimension we have no previous experience with in our society in modern times.” Breivik will have five days to present his case which, reports say, will not be broadcast. Jorid Nordmelan, one young survivor from the massacre on Utoya, told the BBC before the trial, “I’m really looking forward to this being over with, because it feels like something is undone here, I really can’t move on with my life until this is done.”

Poison control centers could save the government up to $997,395,280 annually by reducing the need for costly emergency room visits, according to data on the center’s website. In addition, every 90 seconds a health care professional consults the center for medically relevant information.

“The elephant picture is something almost everyone can relate to — it captures people’s imaginations,” Espinoza said. “And although we don’t get increased funding because of it, the public outreach component of what we do continues to be an important part of the mission.” The HiRISE camera was built at the UA and is installed on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Time for change at UC Davis Michelle A. Monroe Daily Wildcat


t’s time for new leadership on UC Davis’ campus. A campus police officer at the University of California at Davis pepper sprayed around 20 college students in November. The students were sitting, linking arms and peacefully protesting their rising tuition costs. UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi ordered officers to make the protestors take down their tents because overnight camping is forbidden on campus. How the incident went from asking students to take down tents to pepper spraying seated protestors is beyond comprehension. A senator for the Associated Students, University of California, Davis said by the time the pepper spraying started, the tents were already down and the crowd was confused and shocked when Lt. John Pike casually took out a canister and started spraying students. The officers in question have been on administrative leave since, and Katehi is supposedly working with UC officials to move forward. This is too little, too late. A report released Wednesday shows that the officers used a type of pepper spray weapon they were not authorized to use, were not trained to use and did not appear to use correctly. How did they get these weapons? Are campus police officers all over the country walking around with weapons they aren’t authorized or trained to use? Pike claims he used the weapon because he felt trapped by a “hostile mob,” according to the recently released report. There were more students surrounding the seated protestors — but they were at a reasonable distance from the officers, not pushing forward or talking to them. And Pike didn’t target the standing, larger group of students, he targeted the small, quiet group, walking back and forth as calm as if he was spraying pesky weeds on his front lawn. He should have been fired immediately, and the idea that there is even a possibility he can come back from his suspension is ludicrous. He clearly does not respect students, their right as citizens to peacefully assemble or the safety of those on campus. And Katehi should not continue to lead the school either. The report showed she moved immediately to stop the protest before it could start because administrators feared non-affiliates would bring sex, drugs and violence to campus. But the First Amendment guarantees every citizen’s right to peacefully assemble. A college official who wants to stop protests for what they bring to campus should be removed. While the world focuses on the atrocious actions of the police officers, everyone seems to be forgetting that the idea to send them there came from the Office of the Chancellor. Katehi told officers to remove the protestors’ tents, ignoring their warnings that doing so during the day would have a higher risk of backlash and potential violence. The report also suggests that there should be accepted rules for regulating campus protests. The first step to doing this is removing the person who ignored the First Amendment, police warnings and the safety of her students. And Pike deserves more than just a slap on the wrist for his part in the debacle. “Free speech, including nonviolent protest, is part of the DNA of this university, and it must be protected with vigilance,” said Mark G. Yudof, president of the University of California, in a statement released Wednesday. “I implore students who wish to demonstrate to do so in a peaceful fashion, and I expect campus authorities to honor that right.” Well, students should expect their regents to recognize a bad leader and to implement immediate staff changes to protect their rights. — Michelle A.

“Proposed GE diversity requirement is only a Band-Aid approach” When I think of the proposed “Community and Conflict in the Modern World” General Education requirement, three things immediately come to mind: the superficiality of General Education courses, cultural hostility on campus and the need to focus on racial sensitivity outside the classroom. To remedy the first would require an idealistic overhaul of both high school and college curricula. As for the second point, alleviation of hostility against underrepresented students cannot be achieved in one General Education requirement. According to appeals made by two underrepresented groups in a resolution condemning hate crimes at UCLA, cultural hostility exists because of a lack of understanding among different groups on campus; and an academic requirement focused on diversity could facilitate understanding and acceptance of different cultures. But achieving a more tolerant student environment can be done more efficiently and directly through empowerment and encouragement of student groups dedicated solely to topics such as cultural difference. The proposed requirement amounts to a redesign of the undergraduate curriculum only in name. Courses that could fulfill the potential General Education requirement include those already taught in departments such as anthropology and Chicana and Chicano studies. And many of these courses — Introduction to Chicana/Chicano Studies: History and Culture, for instance — already count for General Education requirements under different headings. One General Education course may expose students to a few memorized key terms and broad, surface concepts. Actual engagement with the community encourages students to seek perspectives deeper below the surface, to learn tolerance as citizens rather than as students. A General Education course may reaffirm what some already know about tolerance, and it will go in one ear and out the other for those who have already solidified their narrow views regarding cultural hostility. — Ani Torossian, April 16 issue

“What if my great-great-grandkids found my Facebook?” I’ve always loved history and, in particular, have always been fascinated with genealogy — the study of family lineages and history. I love learning about the everyday lives of my ancestors and trying to figure out what they were like. Did I get my weird sense of humor from some long-lost aunt or uncle? Where does my overwhelming — some say intimidating — beauty and humility come from? Certainly not my ugly-as-hell parents. Sometimes I wish Facebook had been around back in the olden days so I could get a sense of what my forefathers and mothers were really like. But the other day I realized — with more than a trace of panic — that I am somebody’s ancestor. And I have a Facebook. And Twitter. And Pinterest. And email. And a YouTube account. And a blog. And a year’s worth of these columns. If, in a 100 years, the Internet is still around (and who knows if it will be? It’s only been in existence for fewer than 20 years) will our offspring and our offspring’s offspring have access to all our online identities? With Facebook’s new timeline feature, will they be able to track the path of our whole life, like some sort of digital diary? It got me thinking about the kind of digital archive I’m going to leave for my future offspring. I post some pretty stupid stuff on Twitter. And I don’t mean stupid like “Wow, that’s going to keep you from getting a job,” but just plain stupid stuff. Take this gem, for example: “Trying to incorporate the term ‘ruffians’ more into everyday conversation.” Right now I’m a bit too overwhelmed to decide what I want to do with my online identities. And who knows, Facebook may blow up tomorrow and I won’t have to worry about any of this. But in the event that it doesn’t, perhaps I should jazz up my profiles a little bit, so as to appear more interesting to future genealogists. Maybe I’ll fake a couple of marriages or something, just to mess with their heads. Whatever happens, this revelation certainly has gotten me thinking about my online identity. And it’s made me more determined than ever that videos of a certain 21st birthday can never be allowed on the Internet. Ever. — McKenna Brown, April 12 issue

University honesty questionable A

dmission experts say prospective students should not easily trust college ambassadors, especially ones who are paid, according to the Chicago Tribune. No shit. It’s sad that anyone even has to ask whether college ambassadors can be trusted, since all universities have an obligation to be honest to prospective students about the true nature of their campus. If there’s a problem at a college, it’s wrong to keep it from those touring to find out information. Even still, these ambassadors seem to cover up whatever blemishes their school may have. The main problem is that these students are usually fulfilling workstudy obligations, according to the U.S. News and World Report, and are hired to promote a school’s specific communications agenda. But this news isn’t shocking. Prospective students aren’t idiots. High school seniors who go on campus tours

Police Beat By Elliot P. Hopper Daily Wildcat

Loudness to lock up A female student studying in the Main Library called UAPD because she heard a couple arguing loudly outside the library at 2:12 p.m. on Thursday. She told officers that the two were yelling at each other and she did not think they were students. When officers arrived at the scene, neither the couple nor the caller could be found. Officers searched the surrounding areas and found the couple down the street. They asked them if they were near the library earlier and if they had been raising their voices. The couple said they had but had since had resolved the issue. Officers asked to see their licenses so they could run background checks on the couple. The background check showed that the man had a warrant out for his arrest. Officers searched and arrested the man before taking him to Pima County Jail.

Tags gone bad University of Arizona Police Department officers pulled over a vehicle for having expired tags at 5 a.m. on Thursday. The officers approached the car, which had December 2011 tags, and began speaking to the female driver. The woman said she was from California and that she was not affiliated with the UA. When officers told her that her tags were expired, she said she knew and would replace them soon. The officers then spoke with the California Motor Vehicle Division, who told them that her registration and insurance had been expired for more than six months. Officers asked if she knew about this and she said she has not had time to take care of her car since moving to Arizona months ago. Officers cited her for driving with an expired license and without insurance. They decided to let her keep her vehicle instead of impounding it. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at

Global Lens Film Screening 2012 - Songs from the Southern Seas Tuesday, April 17, 2012 6:30 p.m. Two couples, one Russian and one Kazakh, live side-by-side in relative harmony in a beautiful yet semi-desolate region of the Great Steppe. But when the fair-skinned Russians give birth to a boy of decidedly darker skin, 15 years of suspicion and acrimony arises between them and can only be resolved by an ironic twist of family and fate. At times darkly somber, at other times tender and wistful – and buoyed throughout by a soundtrack of folk-inspired melodies – writerdirector Marat Sarulu draws on Kazakhstan’s epic history to create a gritty and deeply compassionate tale of humor and cultural insight. The movie is presented in Russian with English subtitles. The Office of Global Initiatives, in collaboration with the Center for Latin American Studies, Africana Studies and Russian and Slavic Studies, will screen three Global Lens films in honor of World Cinema Week in April. The Global Lens series is part of the Global Film Initiative, a U.S.-based not-forprofit organization specializing in the support of independent film from Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Founded in 2002 to promote crosscultural understanding through the language of cinema, the initiative awards numerous grants to deserving filmmakers from around the world each year, and supports a touring film series called Global Lens.

‘Speaking in Tongues: Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 1961-1976’ This landmark exhibition, curated by Claudia Bohn-Spector and Sam Mellon, brings the work of Berman and Heinecken ‒ two seminal yet under-studied Los Angeles artists ‒ into close conversation for the very first time. Each was interested in appropriating and repurposing images from mass media, which helped usher in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary avant-garde art. Their works are explored within the unique cultural context of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, as it fueled and amplified their highly original creative approaches. The Center for Creative Photography began acquiring the Robert Heinecken Archive in 1981. A detailed guide to the Heinecken Archive can be found on the CCP website. Center for Creative Photography.

SPURNING THE SUN DEVILS Going to ASU was always the goal for the Maggi brothers, but one broke tradition and became a rival By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat


ny time the Arizona baseball team takes on its familiar rival, ASU, tempers flare and the final result holds extra significance. But for one freshman, the chance to play against ASU means even more. First baseman Joseph Maggi will not only be taking on the Sun Devils tonight, but he will be playing against his brother, Beau Maggi. “It’s exciting, it’s been on my mind since I signed at Arizona,” Joseph Maggi said. “I want to get back at ASU a little bit. It’s fun to play against a brother — it’s a nice, little friendly rival.” The Maggi family has had a history with ASU since 2009 when Joeseph Maggi’s older brother, Drew Maggi, played for the Sun Devils. Drew Maggi is now on the Pittsburgh Pirates’ single-A team, and Beau Maggi is a sophomore catcher at ASU. It seemed like family tradition for Joseph Maggi to follow suit and join his brothers in Tempe, Ariz., and he said that was the plan all along. But then Joseph Maggi tore his ACL his senior season in high school and everything was turned upside down. So far, Arizona has benefitted from his misfortune. Once Joseph Maggi met with head coach Andy Lopez, his mind immediately went from playing at Packard Stadium to relocating to Tucson — from following family tradition to becoming the family rebel.

Maggi, 8 First baseman Joseph Maggi went against family tradition when he chose to attend the UA instead of ASU.

UA takes on ASU in duel on the diamond By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat will ferguson / Daily Wildcat

Trace Biskin, No. 72, is one of many players on the Wildcats O-line with playing experience, a fact that has helped the UA overcome injuries and a suspension in the spring.

Experience proving to be an advantage for offensive line By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

When people hear the word “blindside”, they think of the successful, uplifting 2009 film about Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher. That’s not what Arizona quarterback Matt Scott thinks about, at least not when he is on the football field. The blindside, in football terms, is the side of the backfield where the quarterback has less-than-optimal vision when throwing the ball, or the side opposite his throwing arm. Scott is a right-handed quarterback, so whoever is playing left tackle is protecting his blind side. In 2011, Mickey Baucus protected former quarterback Nick Foles’ blindside. This spring, however, the Wildcats have played without the 6-foot-8, 290 pound lineman and have been forced to mix-andmatch all along the line. Chris Putton and Eric Bender-Ramsay have both been filling in at left tackle in the spring — both also have only played guard in their college career. Left tackle isn’t the only spot on the line sans key personnel, as sophomore Fabbians Ebbele has been suspended all spring due to his role in a March campus-area brawl. Ebbele, who stands at 6-foot8 and 310-pounds, received Sporting News Freshman All-America honors in 2011. While the absence of two key linemen might seem problematic with head coach Rich Rodriguez’s installation of a new spread option offense and a clear lack of depth at quarterback behind Scott, the Wildcats have been able to weather the storm in large part because the entire unit has returned from 2011, and has game experience to boot. “I don’t think we’ve been at full strength for the whole spring, but the whole group as a unit has gotten better progressively every day,”

Scott said. “I think that’s a good sign and I think they’ll continue to get better through fall camp.” Of all the linemen in camp, center Kyle Quinn is far and away the most experienced, seeing time in 33 games in his career and starting 13. With the lack of depth at the quarterback position — behind Scott this spring are two walk-ons and a converted receiver — protecting the team’s signal caller is more important than ever. “This situation we have (at quarterback) is unique,” Quinn said. “You have to protect the quarterback at all costs anyway but with Matt’s situation, it gives us more of a motivation. Matt’s a great guy he’s a great leader, and he’s going to be great for us this year.” Even with the injuries, Quinn isn’t too concerned as he thinks that all the experience the team gained last year, and in the spring, will be helpful going forward. “Everybody that is on this O-line has played pretty much,” Quinn said. “We’ve got a lot of experience coming back, we have four seniors on the line so there’s a lot of leadership now. There’s no more throwing guys into the fire, everyone’s been tested, everybody’s ready to go.” Among the players thrown into the fire this spring are Putton and Bender-Ramsay. Putton, a starter at left guard last season, actually played left tackle in high school so the transition isn’t as difficult as it might seem. “They both (Bender-Ramsay and Putton) did really well filling in for Mickey,” senior guard Trace Biskin said. “It’s gonna be interesting when he comes back … Both of them have committed themselves to getting better and its shown on film.” At right tackle, redshirt freshman Jacob Arzouman has been getting

O-Line, 8

The baseball version of the Duel in the Desert continues tonight as No. 13 Arizona meets No. 20 ASU tonight for the first time this season at 6:30 p.m. in Tempe, Ariz. Arizona (24-11, 10-5 Pac-12) is coming off of its first weekend series loss of the season after dropping two straight games to No. 11 UCLA, but the junior-laden team will have to quickly move past the disappointing weekend as it travels to take on a talented Sun Devil squad (23-13, 9-6 Pac-12) at Packard Stadium. “Mentally I think we’ll be okay, a lot of our guys are tough guys,” junior Alex Mejia said. “We’re a lot of juniors too, so we need to drop (the UCLA losses) right away. Obviously

we need to learn from it … make sure it doesn’t happen again.” The disappointing end to the weekend exposed some of Arizona’s weaknesses, especially in the bullpen, and tonight’s game against ASU won’t be any easier. “You just have to play good baseball, there is no mystery potion or anything,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “You have to pitch well, get timely hitting and play good defense. You can win just about every game if you do that.” But the Wildcats have struggled to put together complete game efforts during weekday games all season long, resulting in just a 4-4 record during the week, including three straight losses. And even with the limited success during the week and a rivalry game between two top-25

opponents, Lopez said he’s treating it just like any other Tuesday game. That’s because tonight is just a single non-conference game. The two teams’ official Pac-12 duel starts May 25 in Tucson, so despite the rivalry, Lopez said the team can’t disrupt its roster with a conference series against Washington coming up. “I’m sure ASU is in the same mode,” Lopez said. “They want to win like we want to win because it’s a (rivalry game). But we both have weekend games, and they are three important conference games.” With a trip to Seattle booked for the weekend, Lopez said he wouldn’t make any special adjustments for ASU despite the pitching staff troubles during week games.

Arizona’s Babcock named Pac-12 pitcher of the week By Emi Komiya Daily Wildcat

The Arizona softball team has started to rely heavily on pitcher Shelby Babcock to get the job done in the circle, and the Pac-12 Conference has started to take notice. For the first time in her career as a Wildcat, Babcock was named the Pac12 Pitcher of the Week after a weekend against Cal where she pitched a complete game in the Bears’ first conference loss, allowing just three hits and striking out six. Babcock is 15-7 this season with a 2.34 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 134.2 innings pitched. Candrea has had nothing but good things to say about his emerging pitcher and her continued presence on the field. Babcock began the season as a question mark as she was working on techniques already mastered by Wildcat ace pitcher Kenzie Fowler. But Fowler faced a few setbacks early on in the season, dealing with back and shoulder pains along with an episode of the flu just before conference play began about a month ago. Babcock hasn’t looked back since. The Colorado native rose to the occasion and has made the most of her opportunities on the mound to improve her skills and show the coaching staff that she thrives under pressure.

Pitcher Shelby Babcock has been contributing for the UA all season. The Pac-12 finally took notice on Monday, naming her the conference pitcher of the week.

“(Lopez) told me about the mission here, and I was all in after that,” Joseph Maggi said. But choosing a school was just the beginning. Joseph Maggi still had to prove he could contribute to the team. “During the fall he just wasn’t the greatest kid out there — he was messing up a lot,” junior Alex Mejia said. “Ever since then he’s fixed things, turned things around. It’s definitely been a 180 (degree change).” Joseph Maggi started the season behind fifth-year senior and designated hitter Bobby Brown, as well as sophomore first baseman Brandon Dixon. But Brown started the season in a cold slump, giving Joseph Maggi an early opportunity to pinch-hit in Arizona’s second series of the season against Auburn, where he singled in his first career at-bat. Then, in the following game of the doubleheader, Joseph Maggi pinch-hit for Brandon Dixon and the result was the same — another hit, and Joseph Maggi could no longer be ignored. “I like to give the returning guys a real

The goalie’s Game 3 availability might be a factor in Shaw’s case. But if Smith starts, the Hawks feel Shaw’s five-minute major and half-game ejection sufficed. “We lost a player for the rest of the game, and they didn’t,” captain Jonathan Toews said. “I don’t think the intent was there at all. The effort to get out of the way and avoid the head contact was enough. Their goaltender is healthy; he’s fine. He played well for the rest of the game. That’s the main thing.” OFF ICE: Smith wasn’t the only one idled in Arizona on Monday. Center Martin Hanzal and forward Lauri Korpikoski reportedly missed practice. “Our health is just fine,” Tippett said. “We have everybody under evaluation, and that’s where we’re at. That’s not a concern of ours.” Asked specifically about Smith’s off day, Tippett snapped: “I told you we’re not talking

Blackhawks’ Shaw must wait on word from NHL CHICAGO — Andrew Shaw had his hearing with the NHL discipline honchos Monday. Apparently an agonizing wait is part of the punishment. The Chicago Blackhawks rookie winger reportedly won’t learn until Tuesday if he’ll absorb any additional sanctions for a shoulder-to-head collision with Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith in Game 2 on Saturday. “I’ll respect the outcome,” Shaw said before the hearing. “It’s their decision. They’ve been doing such a great job thus far. They know what’s appropriate. “I watched the replay. Like I said, I’m a little upset I made contact. I didn’t try to. I tried getting out of the way. That last minute of his head coming forward kind of looked bad.” Smith didn’t practice Monday, and Coyotes coach Dave Tippett didn’t elaborate on his status.

about injuries. He’s fine.” FOURTH DOWN: Marcus Kruger received high praise for centering a second line that powered the Hawks in the stretch run, only to get shuffled to the fourth line after a Game 2 rearrangement that likely will continue into Game 3. “We didn’t play good enough, and of course they wanted to change stuff,” Kruger said. “Things like that are going to happen all the time. You just try to stay focused and play your game.” ONE-TIMERS: Defenseman Steve Montador skated solo Monday as he recovers from concussions that have sidelined him for 29 of the past 30 games. … The Hawks recalled 19-yearold forward Brandon Saad and five players from AHL Rockford: forwards Jeremy Morin and Brandon Pirri, defensemen Joe Lavin and Ryan Stanton, and goalie Carter Hutton.

opportunity to play before they get pushed out by freshmen, I just think they’ve earned it,” Lopez said. “But (Joseph Maggi) just pushed, and pushed and pushed himself right into the lineup.” Joseph Maggi has started 19 games this season and is batting .349, good enough for fourth on the team. “Lopez showed faith in me,” Joseph Maggi said. “And I’ve been taking advantage of this big park — putting balls on the ground and making the defense get me out. It’s been successful.” Most of Joseph Maggi’s appearances have been in the DH role, but with his continued success Lopez has started to play him at first base when the team plays against right-handers. “That kid works really hard now and he gets after it,” Mejia said. “He’s a tough competitor. He doesn’t have any pop … but he finds his way to put the ball in play, and he gets hits for us.” Joseph Maggi lacks any sort of power — he sports a .365 slugging percentage, which is the third-worst out of everyday players — but his ground ball approach is perfectly catered to the cavernous Hi Corbett Field.


from page 6

the majority of the playing time in place of Ebbele, and has done a pretty good job at the position. Both Biskin and Scott picked Arzouman as the lineman who has been the most impressive this spring. This spring, running backs have often been cited as the position with the most depth and talent. Linebacker Jake Fischer agrees with that sentiment, but said the offensive line, thanks to the contributions of players like Putton and Arzouman, is right up there with the backs. “Offensive line and the running backs are going to be the two top groups just since we have so much versatility in the backfield and we have everybody back from the offensive line last year,” Fischer said. “We have a lot of underclassmen who were getting a lot of reps and they really stepped it up too.” Ka’Deem Carey, the likely starter at running back, concurs. “I’m loving the O-line, they’re starting to get their blocking and stuff right,” Carey said. “I like the way they’re coming along.”

But in the Wildcats’ visit to Tempe tonight, Maggi won’t be hitting it into the gaps of Hi Corbett, he’ll be playing at Packard Stadium in front of his parents and siblings who’ll be dressed in maroon and gold. Joseph Maggi said his parents decided to wear the colors of whichever son is playing at home. So while the Maggi’s will eventually be in cardinal and navy in late May, tonight Joseph Maggi is the enemy. “Drew told me, ‘Against ASU, have some success, but you’re still not going to find the W,’” Joseph Maggi said. Lopez said that he is unsure if Joseph Maggi will play today because of a bone bruise that bothered him over the weekend. But even if he is forced to watch the game from the bench, Joseph Maggi will still have the chance to watch his teammates take on his newest rival — something he never thought he’d say his sophomore year of high school. “It’s a little bit of motivation for me,” Joseph Maggi said. “It’s real sweet to go back down to my hometown against him and play in the park that I watched my brothers have so much success in and get a win there. I’m excited.”

Injury to Hall big blow to UA defense

Junior safety Adam Hall was expected to play an important role in Arizona’s defense this season after missing all of last year due to a torn ACL. In Saturday’s scrimmage at Kino Stadium, Hall tore his ACL on the same knee and will likely miss the 2012 season. “I don’t know when surgery will be. The doctors will look at all that and determine what his availability for the fall will be then,” head coach Rich Rodriguez said. “Anytime you lose a player, and anytime you lose a good player it’s a blow to your football team. “Adam worked really hard in the offseason and had a good spring, and it’s unfortunate.” Linebacker Jake Fischer can relate to Hall — he missed 2011 due to an ACL tear — but he said Hall is still in high spirits. “He’s in all of our prayers and he’s got a very positive attitude so he’ll be stronger than before,” said Fischer. “We’re all confident that he’ll be back. .. He’s in high spirits right now and he’s already starting to work hard. Its only been (three) days but he’s already starting to work. He was out here with us (Monday).” Hall played in one game last year, recording 10 tackles and a forced fumble. In 2010, the Tucson native contributed 54 tackles, two interceptions and two pass deflections. — Zack Rosenblatt

Baseball from page 6

Middle relief has been the most consistently weak area for Arizona this season, and it has shown when the usual three starters aren’t able to go out to the mound. Tonight either relievers Tyler Hale (1-0, 3.89 ERA) or Tyler Crawford (0-1, 3.97 ERA) will start. Both Hale and Crawford have done well in their limited roles this season. But that hasn’t translated into Arizona victories, as neither has won in a midweek start. Lopez likes to either have his weekend starters go the distance, or at least hand the ball to closers Stephen Manthei or Mathew Troupe, but that plan can’t happen midweek. Neither Hale nor Crawford has shown the stamina to go the full distance, with Crawford going the longest in 5.2 innings in a 5-4 loss to Utah Valley. But even with the limited success, Lopez said he wouldn’t make any special changes for ASU because the result of the Pac-12 series against Washington will erase any memory of this first encounter with the Sun Devils. But even though the manager isn’t disrupting everything for this first meeting, Mejia said the players will give the game the extra attention rivalries usually deserve. Mejia knows the opposition feels the exact same way. “(ASU is) going to be a competitive team,” he said. “They always are when they come out and play us.”

Why do people sober up faster in serious situations?

A. reality there’s no quick, easy way to sober up. Not with

It may seem as if someone is “snapping out of it” but in

coffee, not a cold shower, nor food. Not even if the police show up at your party! If you’re really intoxicated, it isn’t possible. So what’s the effect you’re observing?

Now you can take the best college radio station with you wherever you go!

First, the person may not be as intoxicated as you thought. Not even close. After all, who keeps track of how much someone else is drinking? When in full party mode, you could assume someone was drunk based on their behaviors. But in an emergency (police at the door), the environment demands different behaviors and the person “snaps to attention” to handle the situation. Second, even those who drink more than a few are responding to the environment. Let’s say you have the same number of drinks when drinking with your parents as you had at Saturday’s party with friends. Two very different environments, and same number of drinks, but we’re betting your behavior wasn’t the same. The research backs up this phenomenon. Many studies on positive alcohol expectancies demonstrate a drinker’s experience is psychological rather than pharmacological and the extent of what you expect when drinking influences your actual experience. In other words, we pick up cues from our environment (party) to “act” drunk (someone feels less inhibited so talks more and louder, says things they later regret, appears more outgoing, more energetic, more sociable). Basically, they are acting in a bigger way than when sober. All these variables together could lead an observer to believe they are drunk. But change the environment and voila! Drunk behaviors aren’t positively reinforced around parents and the police! So the take-away here is that you can drink less and still have fun!

You, too, can do this research by throwing a party offering only non-alcoholic beer (no hard alcohol either) and observe the outcome. The hardest part is keeping the secret that it’s a non-alcohol party.

Running back Daniel Jenkins runs for a 23-yard touchdown in a scrimmage at Kino Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Jenkins is fighting through injuries to play a key role in the Arizona backfield.

Running back trying to overcome injuries By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat

At this time last year, Daniel Jenkins limped around on crutches in devastation. The little running back out of Rancho Verde High School put together an impressive spring only to have it end with a high ankle sprain toward the end of Arizona’s 2011 spring game. After battling former Wildcat Keola Antolin for the No. 1 running back spot all through spring, Jenkins became an afterthought. His explosiveness took a hit. His lateral quickness wasn’t the same. As a result, Jenkins missed Arizona’s first two regular season games and wasn’t himself even when he could play aside from a 43-yard performance against UCLA, a 57-yard rushing game against Utah and a 48yard day against Louisiana-Lafayette. “The politically correct response would be to say no but obviously it set me back,” Jenkins said of the lingering affects that spring game ankle sprain had on the rest of his 2011 campaign. The injury lingered so much that it couldn’t leave Jenkins’ brain as he entered this past Saturday’s spring game. “I was praying to God before to keep me healthy,” Jenkins said. His prayers were answered. The 5-foot-9, 195-pound ball of muscle rushed for 30 yards on five carries including an elusive 23-yard touchdown scamper. Despite a sore hamstring from an injury he suffered earlier in camp, Jenkins looked like the player that appeared on his way to splitting carries with Antolin and Ka’Deem Carey a season ago before his ankle injury. “I was thanking God that I didn’t get hurt,” Jenkins said. “It’s good to just be able to come out here and perform. I think the biggest thing is

staying focused and staying committed to what you’re doing. I’m glad I was able to do that and come back strong this year.” Jenkins turned in an impressive 2012 spring campaign and figures to be Arizona’s No. 2 back behind Carey. He ran for 81 yards and two scores on nine carries in Arizona’s first spring scrimmage on March 24 and with his newfound health should see even more looks in head coach Rich Rodriguez’s spread option attack. Arizona’s running back corps is as deep as its ever been with Carey, Jenkins, Kylan Butler, Taimi Tutogi, Greg Nwoko and Jared Baker. But in Rodriguez’s system, which often times features two or even three running backs at a time, Jenkins will get his touches. “If we got five we can win with, we’ll play all five,” Rodriguez said earlier in the spring. Each back brings something different to the table, and Jenkins’ combination of power and speed figures to be the perfect fit. “It suits my strengths a lot actually. I like the way they call their plays,” Jenkins said of Rodriguez’s offense. “The bellies, the zones and the powers, it’s a lot of different things to set up a running back to cut and get north and south to score.” Rodriguez has made it clear that the depth chart won’t be set until a couple weeks into fall camp. There are plenty of backs that could potentially steal carries from Jenkins, a redshirt junior. But all signs have pointed to Jenkins playing a major role in Arizona’s backfield, and at least this time heading into the summer and fall camp he’ll be healthy enough to prove his worth. “I think everybody has bought in to his system and culture,” Jenkins said. “It should be a fun season.”
