Lynch’s office is covered in photos of old inventions. Lynch received a patent related to the creation of silicon last year. Licensing and options contracts, a precursor to inventions becoming products, generated $1.26 million in revenue in 2009 for the university.
By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA reached a record number of agreements helping to bring university-developed technology into the marketplace in 2010. The UA Office of Technology Transfer signed 64 licensing and option agreements last year, which was a 49 percent increase from 2009, according to a report presented to the Arizona
Board of Regents. The report also showed increases in invention disclosures and patent applications within the university compared to the past several years. Filing inventions through the Office of Technology Transfer starts the process of translating research into its practical application, according to Patrick Jones, director of the Office of Technology Transfer. Once an invention is licensed, it can eventually be sold in the market-
place as, or as part of, a product or service. Research at the UA has not been affected by the economic recession as heavily as other areas within the university, Jones said. Industry funding, as well as funding from the federal government, during the past several years has helped fuel the innovation increase. “We were very successful in competing for stimulus funding targeted at supporting LICENSING, page 5
Residence halls get eco check-ups By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA House Energy Doctor program is giving three Residence Life buildings a sustainability checkup. The program consists of graduate and upper-division undergraduate architecture students who test buildings in order to prescribe how they can save energy and cut costs. The doctors audited Maricopa Residence Hall, La Aldea graduate housing complex and Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall on March 30. Assessing the buildings took three and a half hours. This was the first time the program had done simultaneous audits and the first time the program has audited buildings on the UA campus. The doctors spent a lot of time studying the three building in detail before the audit. “Its one thing to look at it on paper or on the computer and it’s a completely different animal to go out and test them,” said A.J. Mach, house energy doctor. The doctors will give their recommendations to Residence Life on May 12, showing possible solutions and a
breakdown of how much money various strategies would save. For La Aldea, exterior lights are left on all night long causing energy to be wasted, Mach said. Another possible recommendation will be to use lighter paint colors because the darker paint colors in La Aldea absorb more heat. House Energy Doctor Justin Hernandez worked on Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. “Residents on the south side are usually really hot during the summer and then ones one north side are really cold during the winter,” Hernandez said. “It’s just an issue with the mechanical system … there are individual controls that each resident has but the whole building as a whole … they can’t regulate one building from another because its all connected.” Lighting is also left on in several areas, he said. The mechanical system in La Aldea is not high efficiency, which causes the building to use more energy, according to Alan Roberts, house energy doctor. “If they upgrade that equipment they SUSTAINABILITY, page 8
UA officials hope to create space for 1,200 students downtown by 2013. President Robert Shelton and Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup spoke at the UA Visitor Center on Friday to present two potential development teams’ ideas for more student housing. The aim is to reduce mini-dorm demand and create other housing options around the line of the new modern streetcar. This would increase the potential of the streetcar to connect campus and for classes to be held downtown starting next year as well as the National Institute for

Plans proposed for downtown dorms By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Two Arizona abortion bills will place restrictions on state funding for abortion programs and further limit access to abortion procedures. House bills 2416 and 2384 passed through the Legislature and were signed by Gov. Jan Brewer. H.B. 2416, which was signed on April 2, prohibits the use of telemedicine, or electronically exchanged medical information for patient health, in an abortion. The bill also requires that women seeking an abortion be given the option to see their ultrasound before the procedure, said Republican Sen. Nancy Barto, from District 7. “The more information a woman has before she makes that choice, the better for her,” Barto said. “Because there’s nothing worse than having knowledge after the fact and believing that you may have made a different choice.” Many women change their minds after realizing that what is inside of them is alive and has a heartbeat, she said. Years later, they end up regretting their decision and suffer emotionally and psychologically as a result. Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, from District 15, opposes the bill. She said that, because of the coercive setting, most women will not refuse to see the ultrasound if their doctor makes it available to them. “That’s probably unconstitutional because other courts in the country have noted that it’s an undue burden on the woman,” she said. Sinema said it is even more detrimental that H.B. 2416 prohibits the use of telemedicine because the practice helps women access the abortion pill with consultation from a doctor. Women can take a series of two pills, to be taken within the first nine weeks during pregnancy, in order to induce a woman’s period, she said. A doctor must prescribe it, but not all parts of the state have doctors that perform abortions, Sinema said. Telemedicine allows women to go to a nurse practitioner to get a screening and have a TV conference with the doctor. They could also get their pills prescribed this way, she said. If a pregnant woman knows she wants to have an abortion, she can no longer use the television conference system, Sinema said. This also makes it harder for women who are poor or live in rural communities. “It’s basically another attempt to just stop women from getting access to lawful abortion,” she said. Barto said they are trying to help women avoid the consequences of regretting abortion decisions and thinks having the option to see the ultrasound will save lives. “At the end of the day, that’s important to me, but I think it’s important to a lot of Americans,” she said. H.B. 2384, which was signed on April 12, explains that abortions will not be subsidized using tax dollars, Barto said. The bill also denies funding for any organization that provides referrals to women seeking an abortion procedure, Sinema said.
response to the university’s call for publicprivate student housing partnerships issued last year. Shelton said he “cannot use enough superlatives” to describe it. Both proposals would try to locate the dorms near proposed stops on the streetcar line and work in to the amenities of downtown, as well as a new city parking garage to allow for easier transit to and from campus. More details will become available as they emerge. — Kristina Bui contributed to the reporting of this story.
ASUA announces new candidates ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Daniel Hernandez and James Allen have both thrown their hats in the ring for another run at the ASUA presidency after being disqualified from the general election last month. But they will not be alone. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona has officially recognized three candidates to join Allen and Hernandez in the special presidential election: Jesse Gunsch, Myles Tacher and former Senate candidate Robert Rosinski. The special election to determine the next ASUA president will be held Thursday.

5 soldiers die in latest attack The Arizona Daily Wildcat Monday in Taliban suicide campaign Mega Marketplace Defense Ministry Gen. Zahir Azimy said foreign soldiers also suffered casualties but declined to give details. Officials in Laghman province, where the attack took place, gave a higher death toll for Afghans, with Faizanullah Patan, the governor’s spokesman, saying seven Afghans had died. He gave no figure for foreign soldiers. The suicide attack, which Azimy said took place in Laghman’s Gamberi district, was the latest in a Taliban campaign aimed at police, soldiers and government supporters throughout the country. On Friday, a suicide bomber wearing a police uniform detonated his explosives inside the police headquarters in Kandahar in southern Afghanistan, killing the provincial police chief and wounding three others. Bombers in the last week also struck a police training camp in Paktia province, killing three, a meeting of tribal leaders in Kunar province, killing 10, and a
KABUL, Afghanistan — At least five soldiers from the U.S.-led coalition were killed Saturday when a suicide bomber dressed as a soldier blew himself up at a military base in the eastern province of Laghman, Afghanistan, the single deadliest attack on the alliance in months. A statement from the International Security Assistance Force, as the coalition is known formally, did not give the nationalities of the dead soldiers nor say where the attack took place, but an Afghan defense ministry spokesman said four of the dead were Afghans. He said eight people were wounded, four of them Afghans serving as interpreters.

police headquarters south of Kabul, where no dead were reported but the building was devastated. Saturday’s attack in Laghman was notable because the province is considered relatively peaceful. Its capital, Mehterlam, is one of five cities where Afghan forces are scheduled to assume security functions from the coalition this summer. The Taliban claimed the attack in a posting on their website and said the bomber had joined the Afghan army a month ago “for this purpose.” The Taliban said the target of the bomber, who it called “the hero,” had been a meeting of senior military officials that included foreigners “on a base of the puppet army.” The statement claimed that 14 Afghan soldiers and 12 foreign soldiers had died. The Taliban frequently exaggerates the outcome of their attacks. Azimy confirmed, however, that the bomber was wearing an Afghan army uniform when he detonated his explosives.
UN spurs Iraq investigation on citizen deaths McClatchy Tribune BAGHDAD — The U.N. has called on Iraq to conduct an independent investigation into the killings of 34 people at an Iranian opposition base after Iraqi authorities, who authorized a raid on the camp, suggested that the group might have executed its own members. Wildly conflicting accounts of how the members of the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran (PMOI) were killed have highlighted the dilemma over the last remaining stronghold of the group invited in by Saddam Hussein and disarmed by the United States. In a statement issued late Saturday, the United Nations said it expected a commission of inquiry pledged by the Iraqi government to be independent. That commission, however, will include prime ministry and Iraqi military officials as well as a cross-section of political parties and is unlikely to meet that requirement, according to Iraqi government officials. Iraqi government spokesman Ali Dubbagh said earlier this week that
some of the dead were likely executed by camp leaders trying to prevent them from leaving. Saad al-Muttalibi, an advisor to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, said forensic tests, including some by U.S. experts, have been completed on the bodies to determine whether a medical team’s initial findings had been correct. “They were shot execution-style,” al-Muttalibi told the Christian Science Monitor. “The first medical reports indicated they were shot at very close range — gunpowder was found on the wounds.” He also said they appear to be have been shot with handguns rather than the rifles used by the Iraqi military. The U.N. earlier this week confirmed it had seen 28 bodies in a visit to the camp and knew of six others. It said dozens more had been injured in the operation before dawn on April 8, when Iraqi forces moved in to reclaim part of the huge base 70 miles north of Baghdad. The U.N. said in the statement that it had repeatedly urged the Iraqi government to refrain from the use of force.

Several busses and cars were overturned at Page Middle School on Sunday after a strong storm swept through Williamsburg, Va.
McClatchy Tribune RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina officials reported Sunday that 22 people died as a result of the severe storms that swept across the state during a six-hour stretch Saturday. North Carolina Emergency Management said the deaths occurred in Bertie, Bladen, Cumberland, Harnett, Johnston, Lee and Wake counties. Half of the deaths occurred in Bertie, a rural county in the northeast corner of the state with more than 700 square miles of land and just 21,000 residents. The storm cut a wide swath across the county, flattening houses and tossing around farm equipment and vehicles, said Zee Lamb, Bertie’s county manager. “We had several fatalities at the same location but they weren’t all at the same location. They were spread out over several miles,” he said. “A lot of them were in their homes. ... There are homes that are just totally
leveled. Anybody who was in those homes could not have survived.” The fatalities included several elderly residents of an assisted living facility that was in the path of the storm, Lamb said. Across the state, more than 80 people have been transported to local hospitals, some with severe injuries. Gov. Bev Perdue declared a state of emergency for all of North Carolina on Saturday evening. The declaration is a prerequisite for asking for federal disaster assistance. More than a dozen North Carolina counties have also declared local states of emergency, including Wake, Cumberland and Bertie counties. Initial damage estimates say 60 homes have been completely destroyed and more than 400 others sustained damage across the state. In Raleigh, downed trees and a lack of power continue to plague the neighborhoods most damaged by Saturday afternoon’s severe storms. The city of Raleigh identified five
areas that were hit hardest by the storms: South Saunders Street near Western Boulevard; Stony Brook mobile home park in northeast Raleigh, where three people died; the neighborhoods surrounding Shaw University in Southeast Raleigh; and Buffaloe Road and New Hope Road area; and the Yonkers Road area. Raleigh has roughly 30 teams made up of members of the Parks and Recreation, Public Utilities and Public Works departments working to clear away debris, the city reported in a press release. Wake County has 14 assessment teams out surveying damage. The city is working with Progress Energy in areas where power lines are down. Raleigh and Wake County officials are limiting the volunteer opportunities until repairs are made. “We’re asking people that are not trained workers, that are not working in an official capacity, to stay home,” said Wake County spokeswoman Sarah Willamson-Baker.

New regent disrespects Arizona’s students Storm Byrd Arizona Daily Wildcat
ast month Gov. Jan Brewer set another “oh no she didn’t” precedent by appointing Arizona State University student Tyler Bowyer to the Arizona Board of Regents. Bowyer is the current president of the College Republicans at ASU and this semester went on an all-out power grab, running for student body president and going after the student regent position. Bowyer disregarded the traditional application process for the student regent position and just submitted an application to the governor’s office directly. Traditionally, the Arizona Students’ Association (ASA) accepts applications from the university that is next in the rotation of the three Arizona universities to have a student regent. After application reviews and interviews, three candidates are recommended to the governor for appointment. Bowyer skipped the whole approved and accepted application process through ASA and just went to the governor’s office himself. In the end, Brewer appointed Bowyer and the two gave the figurative middle finger to ASA and students across the state. In a recent interview with the Arizona Daily Wildcat, Bowyer said, “It just so happens that I was aligned and it was recommended to me to apply for the student regent position.” Bowyer insisted his actions were in no way intended to be disrespectful and were only as a way to better serve the state. Whether disrespect was intended or not, it was certainly felt. How could one expect otherwise? Perhaps what Bowyer doesn’t seem to comprehend is that ASA is the recognized student body representative across the state. They’re the ones who bring students to the Capitol when state education funding cuts are being proposed, and they’re the ones who bring students to regent meetings to illuminate their stories of financial struggle. According to former ASU Student Regent Ed Hermes, this year an estimated 20 to 25 applications were received. So Bowyer not only undermined ASA, but managed to directly disrespect fellow students by ignoring their applications. Nonetheless, Bowyer maintains that he is the more qualified and just in his actions, According to The State Press at ASU. In his interview with the Arizona Daily Wildcat, Bowyer stated that, “If you’re not in the crowd, as far as ASA goes; it’s hard to actually go through that traditional process.” Now, as a former member of ASA and having spent time within student government, I can shed a small amount of agreement with Bowyer in this regard. Neither Bowyer nor I will be the first, or last, to say that ASA or really any student government function can tend to think inward. They know their people and they want to help their people. That does not, however, justify cutting them out entirely and forging your own illegitimate path, especially when your own path smells like a handout from the governor’s office. Other than his embarrassing defeat in student government elections at ASU, where the winner got 74.46 percent of the vote, and his status as College Republican President at ASU, little is known about Bowyer’s qualifications. In fact his largest qualification seems to be that he’s a “native Arizonian,” as he has been sure to mention in multiple interviews. Outside of using good buzz words and citing his ambiguous “real-life experience,” and caring about the issues, it’s unclear what exactly makes him a good regent. Some might say that he must be qualified if Brewer looked at his application and thought he was a good candidate. However, I tend to think that if Brewer even looked at the application and resume of Bowyer, she stared blankly at it, didn’t say anything, giggled and then hired him. Yeah, that sounds about right. Bowyer not only disrespected ASA, he disrespected the whole student body of each university when he ignored the agreed-upon process. While you can talk all you want about ASA possibly playing favorites, I doubt the president of the Young Democrats at ASU would have stood a shot at getting the regent spot had he or she submitted an application directly to the Governor. So let’s not talk about playing favorites, please. Disregarding politics, what Bowyer did was inexcusable showing his ignorance of the issue and disrespect for his fellow students. Welcome, new Regent Bowyer. — Storm Byrd is a political science sophomore. He can be reached at letters wildcat.arizona.edu.

MAILBAG Editorial ‘misses target’
After reading the several reports and students’ claims debating the recent campus gun law bill, I am shocked at the ignorance that has reached the majority of the student body. While I recognize the sensitivity that surrounds this issue, I hope that students’ emotional interests will not continue to override their logic. In my experience, the most effective way to convey your point of view is to first acknowledge a clear understanding of the opposing position before proceeding to dispute it. The editorial (“Campus gun bill aims for safety, misses target” April 12) fails to use this rhetoric and thus falls short of reaching its potential to execute a respectable argument. While it is understandable that permitting guns on campus may spark a fear in some students, it is possible that this fear is dominating their common sense — as fear so often does. “When someone walks down the UA Mall with a gun on his or her hip, our hearts will beat faster … because what’s to stop him from walking up to a line of people outside of the Student Union Memorial Center and shooting them systematically with a gun?” Do you truly believe that outlawing guns on campus would prevent this supposed guncrazed lunatic from committing a mass genocide in the SUMC? It is fair to assume that if a murderer were marching into the
union with a gun, a sign that says “GUNS PROHIBITED” is not going to make him turn around and leave. More specifically, in response to the article’s question, “what’s to stop him from walking up to a line of people outside of the Student Union Memorial Center and shooting them systematically with a gun?”. Laws are passed with the assumption that people will follow them. This bill does not include a special clause soliciting impending criminals to finally get their vengeance. Shootings on campus already occur. If this “gun-lover” were to obey the law in the first place, he would not be committing murder. Granting the students and faculty of this university their constitutional right to bear arms is not an invitation to attend a wild rampage of shoot-outs and murders. The government’s intention of passing this bill is to allow people to defend themselves. Whether you believe this to be the true intention or not, I would assume that the supposed majority of students who oppose this bill are not intending to rush out and purchase a gun to flaunt around campus because they are now simply free to do so. With that in mind, you can safely assume that the other estimated 20 percent in favor of this bill, are not eager, inhumane degenerates either. — Brooke Austin DeVan Psychology major
Personal protection or potential crisis
A few weeks ago, as I sat outside Brooklyn Pizza, on Fourth Avenue, I watched a stranger pass by me. She looked like a college student, no more than 20, taking an afternoon walk by herself. However, she caught me off guard by displaying a pistol on her waistband. In short jean shorts, a tight T-shirt and boots, she exemplified the unnecessary message of firearms in public areas, especially on university campuses. Questions about this girl circulated in my head. I could not find justification for her personal firearm on Fourth Avenue. The attire and gun demanded attention. The current gun laws trying to be passed, to allow students to carry gun on campus and or in certain designated areas, brings me to the same circulation of thoughts: What are the alternative necessities of carrying a personal firearm, besides to scare, injure or kill another person? I could not find any other purposes, which leads me to resent the idea that an educational environment, such as the University of Arizona, could benefit from the inauguration of these laws. — Michelle Leonard Architecture major
Internet theft, piracy worse than Facebook Michelle A. Monroe Arizona Daily Wildcat
riday at 1 a.m. is not the time I want to be dealing with an angry movie company and the power-tripping Cox Customer Service man. While I don’t particularly care if people illegally download movies, I’m starting to get really pissed off by it. Especially if it hinders me from tagging, updating and surfing to my hearts desire. Recently, I went to check my Facebook and was greeted with the message: “Dear Cox Customer, We regret to inform you that your Internet access has been temporarily disabled.” Rude. Apparently, someone using my wireless network had downloaded a movie and thus had committed copyright infringement. I was a bit put off, and not really sure what to do next. Weeks ago I received an email from Cox telling me that someone had illegally downloaded “127 Hours.” I knew I was innocent of this crime because, to be honest, I would never watch that movie. I emailed Fox, the copyright holders, and told them they had the wrong person and I was sorry this was happening to
them. I thought that would be the end the accusation since there is no traffic on my computer that would tie me to such a crime. However, I received an email from Fox telling me of the four different ways I could have downloaded it. 1. Someone else in your household or business has used your computer or network without your knowledge or permission to perform this downloading function. Oftentimes, a teenage child or a visiting relative or friend might use your network to download movies. 2. You are on an unsecured wireless network and someone within range of your wireless system is using your network without your knowledge or permission. 3. You intentionally downloaded the movie. 4. You thought the service that you used or the site you visited was a legitimate source of movie content. Many of these services or sites try to fool the average consumer. Now, I realized this could be turning into something. I thanked them for their time, put a new password on my wireless and went
about my day. A week later, I went to check my Facebook again (it’s a vice, I know), only to be shut out of my Internet again. This same, terrible movie is haunting my life. “127 Hours” was uploaded from a computer on my network the day before, according to the customer service man that took 15 minutes of being on hold to reach. I assured them I would be changing my password and wireless name and this would not happen again. I had lent the password to a few select people. Well, no more. This time my Internet is mine. Guests? No. Friends? Buzz off. I’m not going to jail because someone else has a fetish for B-list movies. After five minutes of silence and waiting for my Internet to reactivate, the customer service agent told me that my service area was temporary blocked and that I should call back in two hours with my reference code and I’d be set. A phone call at 1 a.m. is just the sweet thing to look forward to at the end of my day. Before I hung up, I got to listen to the newest hit single “Copyright Infringement and You.” Normally I don’t like being treated like a punk, but the subtle you’reguilty-and-I-don’t-believe-anything-yousay undertones really spiced things up. To think I believed that in my 20s I would stop being treated like a snot-nosed kid. A life lesson to all, if your name is on the account, don’t trust anyone. — Michelle A.

NEWS ABORTION continued from page 1 “One of the problems with (H.B.) 2384 is that we already don’t have public funding for abortions in Arizona,” Sinema said. If someone goes to an obstetrician or gynecologist to get a pregnancy test and wants to know their options, this bill poses limitations, Sinema said. “This would prohibit the health professional from even explaining what your options are,” she said. “That’s ridiculous.” “Anyone can believe whatever they want to believe about abortion, but making decisions for other people isn’t fair,” she said. There were instances found wherethemoneywasencouraging abortions, so it was necessary to close the loophole, Barto said. Arizona law prohibits the use of tax money for abortions. Without H.B. 2384, Arizonans were subsidizing abortions for public funding and student fees were being used to provide abortion training, Barto said. Public money and student fees will not be used for abortion training at state universities and community colleges, she said. Organizations such as Planned Parenthood will not
arizona daily wildcat •monday, april 18, 2011 • be qualified to use the working tax credit and instead the money will be used for lawful purposes, Barto said. “Taxpayers will be protected knowing that their funding is not going toward something they consider morally objectionable,” she said. “They can have faith that their lawmakers are watching over their public funds.” Barto said residents of the UA’s obstetrics and gynecology program will still be able to receive the training they want and the bill will not have an effect on the accreditation. In the past, training has been provided through private funds and there is no evidence that the programs will be impeded by the bill, she said. “The Supreme Court has upheld the right of states to make a value judgment, favoring childbirth over abortion, and to implement that judgment by the allocation of public funds,” she said. Barto said H.B. 2384 would not make it harder for women to get abortions because organizations can still seek funding elsewhere. “What we don’t need are bills like this that just seek to make it harder for women to get the health care they need,” Sinema said. “I think it’s wrong that we’re doing this.”
LICENSING continued from page 1 infrastructure and research to generate new businesses and job creation,” Jones said. Revenue from resulting licensing agreements returns to the university as well as the inventor and related laboratory. Revenue from licensing and options totaled approximately $1.26 million in 2010, which was 27 percent more than in 2009, according to the report. The amount is about 40 percent less than the office’s five-year peak of $2.11 million in 2006. Revenue is dependent upon the market success of products licensed in years past, according to Jones. “Not every product is successful,” Jones said. “Not everything that’s transferred into the public sector makes it into the future.” Much of the research leading to inventions is funded by an outside source for a particular purpose, according to Amy Phillips, technology transfer licensing specialist for the College of Optical Sciences. The Office of Technology Transfer is then responsible for managing the intellectual property. Communication of the services offered by the office is helping to increase invention disclosures, Phillips said. The College of Optical Sciences received 33 disclosures in 2010, which was 20 percent of the total disclosures at the university. “It’s really because the Office of Technology Transfer is helping fac-
ulty, students and staff be more aware of the opportunity to have invention disclosures,” Phillips said. Notable license and option agreements detailed in the report include the Public Broadcasting System licensing the distribution rights for “The Phoenix Mission: Onto the Ice,” created by Arizona Public Media. The College of Optical Sciences also licensed optical devices and materials to Canon Corp. “It keeps us on the cutting edge of research,” Phillips said. “Perhaps it’s evidence of that.” David Lynch, professor of mining engineering and materials science and engineering, received a patent last year for research related to the creation of silicon. Lynch’s research involves
the purification and production of solar-grade silicon to be used in various applications, such as solar panels. The research is funded mostly by industry sources and is affiliated with the Solar Technology Research Corp. Lynch plans to open a pilotplant to create silicon and may eventually open a commercial plant. Lynch said technology transfer helps in disseminating knowledge and improving the economy. “We sit at the UA on a depository of information mostly contained within the faculty,” Lynch added. “We have the opportunity to put some of that knowledge to work and into practical application, creating companies and jobs for the people of Arizona.”

POLICEBEAT By Alexander Vega ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
The truth shall set you free
A male UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office on April 13 after being forthcoming with an officer about marijuana possession. A University of Arizona Police Department officer, on bike patrol near Coronado Residence Hall, observed a student sitting on a bench on the northwest side of the building around midnight. As soon as the student noticed the officer, he quickly got up and started walking toward Euclid Avenue. While walking, he looked back nervously at the officer several times. At the corner of Euclid Avenue and Fifth Street, the officer caught up to the student and asked him to identify himself. When asked about why he so quickly left after noticing the officer, he said it was “because I just knew you were going to talk to me.” The student also admitted to having a drug paraphernalia on his person. With the student’s permission, the officer searched his clothing and found a small, black and blue smoking pipe in his sweater pouch. He admitted that there was marijuana in the pipe and said that he thought he got it from a party a few weeks ago, but did not know who gave it to him. The officer decided to dismiss the student to the Dean of Students Office and released him on scene.
Arts student makes troubling threats on Facebook
Several concerned students reported a male UA art student who made threats on Facebook last week to UAPD on April 13. A UAPD officer was dispatched to the School of Art at 2:09 p.m., and spoke with the reporting party who said that she was aware of the suspicious behavior after hearing about it from an instructor. According to the instructor, the student made a crown for Eva Longoria in class. The instructor asked him who the audience for the crown was and he became very angry. “The crown has no audience!” the student yelled to the instructor. His response made the class uncomortable although no one was directly targeted, said the instructor. After class, the instructor looked for the student’s Facebook page to find out more about him. On the page, he found “diatribes” that the student had made as status updates on his and Eva Longoria’s page. While the messages contained threats, no one was specifically mentioned. On a post to Eva Longoria, the student said, “Once I start I will not stop until they are all dead.” His personal status updates were more verbose. “Are you all ready for war?” he said. “Keep pushing and I will destroy you all! You think I’m bluffing Jesus and the Legions are ready and I have been given the commandment to wage war so if it’s war you seek it’s a war you shall have. Keep pushing you’re only provoking my Father the Almighty the God of War!” Another witness from the School of Art corroborated that she had seen videos of him shooting an assault rifle at inanimate objects. Upon contacting the Dean of Students Office, the officer learned that they did not want to remove the student from class or the UA but felt that the situation would be best handled by the Dean.
Laptop containing exams lost in ‘haste’
A molecular and cellular biology instructor lost an Apple laptop on April 13. At approximately 3 p.m., the instructor placed her Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology-issued computer on the trunk of her vehicle in the Cherry Avenue garage. According to her statement to UAPD, she said she took off “in a haste” and did not remember moving the laptop from the trunk to inside the car. For this reason, she believed that the laptop fell off the trunk of the vehicle. After returning home, she noticed that she no longer had the computer and returned to the garage to find it. When the instructor’s search came up empty she decided to inform UAPD. In addition to her personal tax information, the laptop contained the exams for her two classes. There are no witnesses to the lost property at this time.

Dash for Darfur raises genocide awareness
By Samantha Munsey ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT A five-kilometer walk and run event was hosted on campus on Sunday to provide awareness of the genocide occuring in the Darfur region of Sudan and to raise money for relief efforts. The UA’s Student Anti-Genocide Coalition (STAND) sponsored the run, which was titled Dash for Darfur. This was the second time the race has been held on campus and a larger number of runners
participated this year than last. “It’s great to have all of these people come out,” said Aeen Asghar, president of STAND. “It shows, economically, that people are more willing to donate their money and time.” Approximately 44 runners began at a chalked starting line at 8 a.m. in front of the Eddie Lynch Athletics Pavilion by the UA Mall. The course went though the UA campus and followed east on Sixth Street and north on Campbell Avenue before ending back at the starting line. The best time recorded was 17 minutes. “I found out about the race at the Campus
Rec Center when they were passing out flyers about a few days ago,” said Cora Crecelius, an anthropology senior and one of the participants of the race. “It sounded like fun and it was for a good cause so me and my friend signed up.” This year the event raised about $700 from running entrance fees and donations. Asghar hopes that more people will continue to participate next year as away to raise awareness. “This is our main fundraising event,” Asghar said. “It is also a public awareness event as well, people are able to learn more about what we are trying to do.”
Funds raised during the run will go to genocide intervention networks and protection programs for refugee camps in Darfur. The club raises $1,000 annually and said it wants to increase this number in the future. The STAND chapter in Arizona started in 2005 at Desert Vista High School in Phoenix after a history class learned about the conflict between Arabs and non-Arabs in Sudan over natural resources. When some of the founding members went to the UA they expanded to a club on campus.
UA kicks off week-long Earth Day celebrations By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA is celebrating Earth Day all week long with eco-centered fun, lectures from UA environmental experts and opportunities for students to learn more about getting involved. The first Earth Day took place in 1970 after Gaylord Nelson, the then-senator from Wisconsin and future governor, decided to bring about environmental change after seeing the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, Calif., according to earthday.org.
UA events kicked off on Saturday for UA Earth Day 2011 and will go until April 23. “There’s a lot of opportunities for them to learn about environmental issues and challenges and some of the solutions that are not only coming out of the U of A, but facing our region and our world,” said Joe Abraham, director of the Office of Sustainability. On the final day, Biosphere 2 will host a big Earth Day event and the first 50 students to show up at any of the Earth Day screenings in Gallagher Theater will win free tickets. The UofA Bookstore will also be collecting electronic waste on Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday. Connect by Hertz, the car sharing company on campus, has chosen the UA to be the first college campus to get the allelectric Nissan Leaf. All students can enter to win the chance to drive the Leaf the day of its UA debut on Earth Day, April 22 by liking the Facebook page: facebook.com/uaearthday. “I hope that people recognize that the University of Arizona is a leading university in addressing our environmental challenges” Abraham said. “We have a lot to offer our students this week.”

Stakes huge in partisan duel over US deficit MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE WASHINGTON — The dueling deficit-cutting plans presented by congressional Republicans and President Barack Obama promise to restore the nation’s fiscal credibility. But if they fail to deliver, the result could be still higher deficits and the potential for another devastating economic crisis. Even if the far-reaching and painful measures like those in the two proposals were adopted, economists say, more drastic action would be required in the years ahead to bring the deficit down to a sustainable level. The GOP plan, drafted by Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., would reduce government red ink by $4.4 trillion over 10 years. It would cut federal spending by $5.8 trillion, but would offset that by $4.2 trillion in tax cuts. Ryan counts on the tax cuts to stimulate the economy and end up delivering substantially more tax revenues. Obama would shrink deficits by $4 trillion over 12 years. He would make considerably smaller spending reductions, a total of $2 trillion, but would increase taxes by about $1 trillion, focusing on wealthy Americans. Since his definition of wealthy begins with families earning $250,000 a year, many working couples with hefty salaries but few if any tax shelters could feel the effects of his plan more sharply than the millionaires and billionaires he often talks about. Obama’s savings rely in good part on future efforts by government regulators to hold down the costs of medical care — a major, but yet untested, element in the
health care law that does not take full effect until 2014. The Ryan-Republican plan and the one outlined by Obama in his speech last week are opening bids in what’s expected to be a drawn-out battle along partisan lines. But the two approaches agree on one thing: Over time, the nation’s mounting debt threatens the economic stability of the whole country, and the government — along with most voters — will almost certainly have to find ways to do more with less. “Everybody’s sacred cows are going to be gored” if meaningful deficit reduction is to be achieved, said Augustine Faucher, an economist who specializes in government budgets for Moody’s Analytics. Without a credible plan to reduce the deficits, the U.S. could face the kind of debt crisis that has engulfed Greece, Spain and Portugal — with global investors demanding sharply higher interest payments on American debt, driving up borrowing costs for the U.S. and its citizens, and hence hurting domestic investments, job growth and the nation’s standard of living. “When I look out at the horizon, what worries me the most is that the deficits come crashing down and shatter confidence” in the international markets, said Jim Kessler, vice president for policy at Third Way, a moderate Democratic think tank. His other big concern: “The budget will be so dominated by entitlements (such as Medicare) that we won’t be able to help our economy grow” with funds for such things as education and research.

SUSTAINABILITY continued from page 1 would see a decrease in their energy use,” Roberts said. “But you would have the upfront cost of purchasing all that equipment so there sometimes is a trade off and a balance there.” There are less expensive solutions that would reduce the amount of heat the building takes on, said Roberts. One option is to create new window shadings to replace the current shadings that were not designed to cool the building. “In the end, a big part of it is up to the

WASHINGTON — Air traffic controllers will now be required to take an hour more of rest time between shifts, and their supervisors will work more overnight hours, under a new set of scheduling practices announced by federal officials on Sunday. The new scheduling rules are being instituted immediately and will be fully in effect by the end of the week, according to Federal Aviation Administration officials. Controllers will have to take a minimum of nine hours off between shifts, instead of the current eight hours required, and they won’t be able to make shift swaps that put them on an unscheduled midnight shift following a day off from work. FAA managers also will be required to schedule their own shifts to encourage greater coverage in the early-morning and late-night hours, the agency said in a written statement released Sunday morning. The changes are partly the result of interviews with controllers who fell asleep during their shifts in highly publicized cases this year, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” Sunday morning. “I don’t know when I’ve ever been madder,” LaHood said of the recent reports of controllers sleeping on the job. “We’re not going to stand by and let that happen.” Last month, after a sleeping controller at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., failed to assist two jetliners on approach, the FAA told officials around the country to report all such instances directly to them rather than handling them locally.
Since then, six cases have come to light, including one involving a medical flight unable to contact a lone controller working overnight at the Reno, Nev., airport. Early Saturday morning, a controller reported a co-worker asleep at the switches at a radar center near Miami. The FAA has since put an additional controller on midnight shifts at airports that previously had only one. And on Monday, the FAA administrator and the president of the controllers union will travel to Atlanta, beginning a tour of facilities around the country to talk with workers and promote professional standards. The federal government will soon release the results of its study of fatigue and may order other changes as a result of their findings, officials said. But LaHood said Sunday that controllers themselves also must shoulder their share of the responsibility. They can’t make changes to the assigned shift schedule or engage in off-duty activities that will make them too tired to report for duty, he said. “They have to take personal responsibility,” LaHood said in the Fox interview. Their job involves the well-being of the public, he said, “and it has to be done safely.” All of the sleeping controllers in recent cases have been suspended from duty, and LaHood said it was possible that some or all of them would be fired. Union contracts require a full investigation of such cases before termination of employment. “We can fire him,” LaHood said of an employee alleged to have fallen asleep several times in the past few weeks. “But there has to be due diligence.”

That sounds more like a Monday ritual for me … Mondays are for laser tag.Would you rather spend the rest of your life inside the laser tag cave or in a haunted house? Definitely a haunted house. I am a firm believer in the ghost busters. Have you ever had to capture a ghost for anyone? The day has yet to come, but I know it’s coming. I’m not scared by ghosts and stuff like that. I am more excited by creepy stuff because I know I can take. If you or someone you know has something haunted going on in your house, holler at me. How do you feel about Obama staying in office for a second term? I really don’t want to get into it. I’m kind of a bandwagon politician. I care, but I really just go along with what everyone is complaining about, and it seems like a lot of people don’t want him so that’s kind of how I feel. Who would be a better choice between DJ Pauly D and Charlie Sheen? Pauly D, yeah buddy. Charlie Sheen would make cocaine legal.

W-Hoops assistant coach Lindley named Nebraska at Omaha head coach By Alex Williams ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT After three seasons at Arizona, women’s basketball assistant coach Chance Lindley has been named the head coach at the University of Nebraska at Omaha . Lindley, 35 , was brought in as an assistant at Arizona when head coach Niya Butts took over prior to the 2008 season. With Lindley on the staff, Arizona saw an increase in wins in each
of his three seasons. “I want to thank Niya Butts for the opportunity to work with her,” Lindley said in a release. “We wish nothing but the best in the future for Niya, the staff, and the team.” Lindley is the first male head coach the 40year history of UNO’s women’s basketball program, and it is his first head coaching job since leaving Barton County Community College to join Arizona’s coaching staff. He has a 148-33 record as a head coach at the high school and junior college ranks.
FOOTBALL continued from page 14 Greg Nwoko. “It’ll be disappointing if it’s significant,” Stoops said about Fischer ’s injury. “That’ll be another major blow for us.”
Punter Kyle Dugandzic booted the only punt of the game, and impressed the 4,500 fans in attendance with a 72-yard punt. Kicker Alex Zendejas connected on three of his four field goal attempts. He made field goals from 50-yards and two from 32-yards away. He missed on field goal from
40-yards. The senior said the coordination on field goal attempts was something the special teams unit would try to improve during the summer. “We’re not where we want to be right now, but that comes over time,” Zendejas said. “It’s a new snapper, it’s a new holder, eventually that comes over time.” While Stoops said the punt by Dugandzic was impressive, he said there was still major work to be done with the special teams until. “I thought our kick offs were good, and our field goal kicking needs to improve,” Stoops said. “The inconsistencies are really bothering us.”

Q What is the difference between HIV and AIDS? A. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus; it is the virus that leads to AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), the most advanced stage in the course of the HIV infection. After exposure and infection of HIV, the disease progresses through the following steps:
Initial Infection: 2-4 weeks after infection, the virus quickly multiplies in the body and flu-like symptoms (mild aches/pains, low grade fever) are experienced, lasting about 10 days. Antibodies are not yet detectable on an HIV antibody test. Seroconversion: The body produces antibodies to the virus and begins to fight the HIV. At this stage, HIV antibody tests such as the ELISA and Western Blot can be used to determine an HIV infection. Asymptomatic: HIV+ individuals live an average of 12-15 years without symptoms. Symptomatic: As time progresses, HIV continues to damage the vital T cells of the immune system. HIV+ individuals can experience moderate to severe symptoms. Some include: fatigue, shingles, low grade fever, weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, abnormal pap smears, and persistent dry cough. AIDS: The AIDS diagnosis is given when an HIV+
individual has one or more of the following signs or symptoms, defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): • Less than 200 T cells/mm3 of blood (in healthy immune systems there are 800-1,200 T cells/mm3) • T cells accounting for less than 14% of all lymphocytes (one type of white blood cell) • One or more opportunistic infections (e.g. pneumonia, Kaposi sarcoma, invasive cervical cancer, wasting syndrome) With the continual development of powerful antiretroviral therapies, HIV/AIDS individuals are living longer and healthier lives. However, medication is expensive and comes with many side effects. HIV does not discriminate based on gender, race, socioeconomic status, religion, etc. There are over 33.3 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS; 0 have been cured. If you are sexually active, condoms are the best way to protect you and your partner against HIV and many STDs.

Candrea’s surprise move proves genius, yet again COMMENTARY BY Nicole Dimtsios sports writer
To opposing teams, Arizona head coach Mike Candrea is an evil genius. In the top of the sixth inning with one out in Sunday’s game against the No. 8 Washington Huskies, Niki Williams hit a ground ball to second. The throw by second baseman Kristen Arriola took first baseman Lini Koria off the bag, but she applied the tag before Williams could reach first. The first base umpire, however, disagreed and called Williams safe. It only took five seconds for the 55-year-old coach to trot out of the Arizona dugout and onto the field. He calmly spoke with first base umpire Lori Bish and then simply pointed to home plate umpire Tony Cooper, asking for a second opinion. Cooper raised his fist, claiming the runner was out. The call was reversed. The out helped end Washington’s attempt to mount a comeback in the fifth inning and turned the game and the series in favor of the
Wildcats. Candrea’s magic with the umpires wasn’t even his biggest stunt of the weekend. After being blanked 3-0 on Friday, the Wildcat head coach did something he said took “quite a bit” to get him to do. He changed everything. “I’m going to stir things up tonight,” Candrea told left fielder Brittany Lastrapes before Saturday’s game. “I’m going with the numbers.” The wisdom of Candrea’s move isn’t that he made a change. It was clear something needed to happen to decrease the number of Wildcats stranded at the end of each inning. His quiet but clutch decisionmaking is what made the change effective. There was no discussion about who should bat where, and there wasn’t time for batters to try and argue where they thought they should go. The lineup was only posted 10 minutes before first pitch. Saturday was a critical turning point. The Huskies regarded Friday’s victory as a “signature win” over an experienced Arizona team. Arizona’s season came to a fork in the road. Would they be the team that lived up to the pre-season hype or would Arizona fall way short of expectations?
Even after 26 years of coaching in Tucson, Candrea still has tricks up his sleeve. He did what he needed to do to save the weekend series with the Huskies. He did what he needed to do to save the season offensively. Candrea’s by-the-numbers approach not only shook up the lineup, but it shook up the situational hitting opportunities — he broke up the monotony of the Arizona’s hitters. He chose to favor the approach of trusting the stats. Center fielder Lauren Schutzler, Arizona’s new leadoff hitter, went 6-for-8 in the two games since the change. Arizona had 20 hits and drove in all but one of its 19 runs over the course of two days. And while Arizona still left more than 20 runners on base this weekend, they got the two winning results that they needed to turn the season around before the biggest matchup of the conference season. Players might have silently questioned Candrea’s decision to make changes in those ten minutes between posting and play, but they can’t argue with the results. After all, the numbers didn’t lie. — Nicole Dimtsios is a journalism junior. She can be reached at email@example.com.
so it got us pumped up.” The new lineup also produced success on Sunday. Arizona defeated the Huskies (30-6, 5-4 Pac-10) 6-1, winning their third straight conference series. With the win, the Wildcats retained sole possession of first place in the Pac-10.
had to leave Sunday’s game and walked off the field with an icepack on her head. She pitched three innings before having to be replaced by freshman pitcher Shelby Babcock. “Kenzie was sitting there looking at her paperwork, getting ready for the next inning,” Candrea said. “And next thing I see, boom! She’s down. Hit her square.” Fowler has had an injury riddled season and it could make an impact this weekend when ASU visits on Thursday.
SOFTBALL continued from page 14
In the bottom half of the third inning, pitcher Kenzie Fowler was hit on the right side of the head by a foul ball off the bat of designated player Nicole Bryan. Candrea said Fowler was taken to University Medical Center to be evaluated for concussion-like symptoms. Fowler, who started on Friday and Sunday,
Stacie Chambers went deep twice on Saturday, and once on Sunday to increase her career home run total to 83. She is now two away from the Arizona career record held by Laura Espinoza and seven away from the NCAA career record. The Wildcats have 12 more games in the regular season.

Offense flexes power Passing dominates Wildcats’ spring game
By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat The offense gave Arizona football fans a taste of what could be in a 70-minute spring game on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. Using a scrimmage-style scoring system, the offense defeated the defense 53-10. The Wildcats’ offense had 60 plays for 462 yards and 27 first downs — 16 of those coming through the air, an indication of the offense’s philosophical shift toward the pass. Four quarterbacks saw the field for Arizona, combining for 380 yards through the air. Starting quarterback Nick Foles finished 11-of-16 for 133 yards with a 23-yard touchdown to receiver Richard Morrison, who had four catches. Morrison connected on another score with Bryson Beirne, the presumed backup to Foles, should the coaching staff decide to redshirt Matt Scott.
Change for the better
’Cats win two straight after Candrea shakes up order Freshman pitcher Shelby Babcock fires home during Arizona’s 6-1 win over Washington on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium. Babcock was forced to pitch on Sunday after starter Kenzie Fowler was hit on the head with a foul ball.
By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat Brittany Lastrapes was the first to know. “I need to do something because we’re stagnant right now,” said head coach Mike Candrea. “I went back to some basic numbers, and I said to myself if I go by the numbers, this is what our lineup should look like.” In an unprecedented move, Candrea dramatically altered his batting lineup on Saturday by deciding the order strictly by the stats. He moved center fielder Lauren Schutzler from the two-hole to leadoff and moved usual leadoff hitter Lastrapes to the third spot in the order. Right fielder Karissa Buchanan went from the eighthole to the two-spot. He posted the new lineup 10 minutes prior to the first pitch. Only Lastrapes was informed of the switch. “I didn’t know I was the only one to know,” Lastrapes said. “I kind of agreed with his reasonings, and we just needed something different. It didn’t really matter what it was.” The move paid off. Schutzler led off the game with a triple and two batters later, the Wildcats scored the first of 13 runs on the night. After leaving eight runners stranded and falling 3-0 to the No. 8 Washington on Friday, the No. 7 Wildcats blasted the Huskies 13-5 in five innings

on Saturday. The game ended with back-to-back home runs from third baseman Brigette Del Ponte and catcher Stacie Chambers. Both Wildcats had two home runs in the game, and are tied for both the team and Pacific 10 Conference lead in home runs. Chambers first blast was her fourth grand slam of the year and was part of a seven-run inning for Arizona (36-8, 7-2 Pac-10). “I was just trying to get some good, hard hits because I’ve been struggling, obviously. I’ll
take it.” Chambers said. Candrea’s change has the Wildcat power hitters shifted down to the middle part of the lineup with Del Ponte, Chambers, second baseman Kristen Arriola and first baseman Lini Koria making up the heart of the order. “Coach did it because we needed some change,” Del Ponte said. “I personally loved it. You get those butterflies again to be in those positions SOFTBALL, page 13
Receiver David Roberts also added four receptions and Juron Criner, Dan Buckner, Terrance Miller and speedster Garic Wharton each had three. Buckner and receiver Tyler Slavin also scored for the Wildcats. “Certainly, we feel like we have a great group of skill guys,” Stoops said. “We have a plethora of receivers and they’re really starting to mature and come on.” Despite surrendering two sacks, Stoops said the young offensive line continued to improve. This was the first time fans had a look at the new line since the departure of familiar names like Colin Baxter, Adam Grant, Conan Amituanai and Philip Garcia. “The scrimmage was really good for the offense,” said center Kyle Quinn, who with one start has the most game experience of the entire offensive line. “We’ve taken huge strides since day one. Out here was the
best protection we’ve had in a month. “From where we’ve started, we’ve come a long way,” Quinn said after the scrimmage.
Another Wildcat injury
Strong-side linebacker Jake Fischer injured his right knee with less than three minutes left in the scrimmage. The injury could be another potentially crippling blow for the Wildcats because they are lacking depth at linebacker after R.J. Young and Trevor Erno quit the team. Stoops said he wouldn’t know the extent of the injury for a few days. “We’re thin. We need to just get healthy and really work hard this summer,” said linebacker Paul Vassallo. Arizona was also bitten with the injury bug earlier in the spring. The Wildcats are already without starting safety Adam Hall and running back FOOTBALL, page 11
Baseball drops series at UCLA By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat The struggling No. 20 Arizona baseball team entered its weekend series with No. 23 UCLA hoping to build off of its series victory over No. 16 California a week ago. But after winning the series opener, 5-4, behind Joey Rickard’s three-run home run in the fifth inning, the Wildcats (23-13, 5-7 Pacific 10 Conference) dropped their next two games to drop the series. “You don’t get any points for being close. We coughed up a chance to take two out of three in a series” said head coach Andy Lopez. “We need a couple guys to step up in the middle part of the bullpen, and we’ve got to play a little better defense. If we can get those two things together, we’re going to be OK.” Kurt Heyer went 7.1 innings, allowing four runs and striking out six to get the win on Friday. Matt Chaffee pitched the final 1.2 innings, allowing only one Bruin to reach base, earning his fourth save since taking the closer role from Bryce Bandilla. Arizona was baffled by UCLA (19-12, 9-3) hurler Trevor Bauer in Saturday’s 4-0 loss in which the Wildcats mustered only four hits. Bauer struck out 13 and allowed only one walk while finishing his second consecutive complete game and climbing to the top of UCLA’s all-time wins list with his 28th victory.
“(Bauer) cut us up pretty good,” Lopez said. “He has a big-league curveball, and he can throw it in any count. He just does a marvelous job.” Arizona led 5-3 after the sixth inning of Sunday’s 8-5 loss, but UCLA plated five runs while blanking the Wildcats in the final two innings to claim the series victory. Sunday starter Tyler Hale bounced back from a couple of rough outings, going 5.2 innings while allowing three runs — two earned — in a no-decision. Chaffee, who began to emerge as the most reliable option out of the bullpen, suffered the loss after giving up three runs and recording only one out. The lefthander walked two and hit a UCLA batter to load the bases in the bottom of the eighth, and then Bruin center fielder Beau Amaral — who tied the game with a two-run home run an inning earlier — cleared the bases with a double. “We have the ability to do it, but we’re stubbing our toes when we’ve had opportunities,” Lopez said. “We have a few guys who are just not getting it done in terms of middle relief and protecting a lead.” Arizona has now dropped three of its last four games and six of its last 10, but Lopez isn’t panicking — at least not yet. “I’ve got to do a better job of coaching those areas,” Lopez said. “Luckily, we still have some time to figure it out.”
