Day of Silence speaks volumes RHA

faces $2,000 of debt ALISON DORF Arizona Daily Wildcat


LGBTQ STUDENT AFFAIRS, PRIDE ALLIANCE AND UA STUDENTS gather on the UA Mall to participate in a flash mob to break their Day of Silence on Wednesday evening. The Day of Silence helps raise awareness of the abuse, bullying and discrimination that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students face.

A gathering of students sporting tie-dyed T-shirts and duct-taped or painted mouths slowly grew on the UA Mall as they came to the end of their daylong vow of silence. As they waited for the last few minutes to pass, students smiled and danced to songs played from the speakers. Some of the Arizona Pride Alliance interns who had helped organize the event but weren’t participating in the daylong silence sang along. The aroma of the pizza served for dinner filled the air. A few minutes after 5 p.m., the “Cha Cha Slide” began playing and

a crowd of about 30 people began to dance. Passersby stopped to watch, and some even joined in. A round of applause erupted at the end of the song, echoing across the Mall as participants finally spoke for the first time in seven hours, after participating in the Day of Silence. Organized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, Pride Alliance and LGBTQ Affairs, the Day of Silence is part of a national campaign to raise awareness of the abuse, bullying and discrimination that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people face. LGBTQ people are at a higher risk for mental illness and being

victimized, according to Martie van der Voort, a counselor at Campus Health Service Counseling and Psych Services who runs the LGBTQ and gender spectrum support group. “The clients that I have lost to suicide have identified as LGBTQ,” van der Voort said. “It becomes a very personal passion project for me.” Van der Voort said that having the event on a college campus was a little bit like “preaching to the choir” since students tend to be more openminded, but it was still important to get the community involved. Kaleb Stephens, an ecology and evolutionary biology junior and codirector of Pride Alliance, said that one of the challenges the campaign

faced was being visible enough to have an impact on a large college campus. “Being silent can disrupt the people around you a little bit, but our whole idea is to make it a little more visible,” Stephens said. As a result, Pride Alliance decided to add color, dance and music to the silent event by tie-dying T-shirts and performing a dance flash mob in an attempt to draw more attention. Tam Brooks had a black “X” painted on her lips. Brooks, a psychology and religious studies senior, has participated in the day of silence for five years now. Brooks said she always makes it a point to

UA student organizers and community members will celebrate their yearlong efforts to end cancer at Relay For Life this Friday. Political science junior Melissa Schwartz’s grandmother passed away from cancer before she ever had the opportunity to meet her. She said she hopes future generations won’t miss the opporunity to meet a grandparent because of cancer. However, as the co-chair of the 2013 UA Relay For Life, Schwartz has done more than just hope — she has taken action. Working alongside a board of dedicated committees since August of 2012, Schwartz watched as more than 85 teams and 650 participants joined together to raise more than $32,000 in support of the American Cancer Society — and the numbers are still rising. Schwartz was a team captain for Relay For Life during her freshman year and has been actively involved since. “It has always been a priority of mine to help find a cure [for cancer],” Schwartz. “Unfortunately, the reality is that everyone

A 5-4 vote by student government leaders Wednesday leaves the Residence Hall Association $2,000 in the hole for a conference it hosted in February. The regional business conference — known as No Frills — for the Intermountain Association of College and University Residence Halls was funded by several sponsors, including RHA, the Dean of Students Office, the UofA Bookstore and the Associated Students for the University of Arizona. The event went over budget by $2,784.18, according to Sen. Alex Chang, who asked the ASUA Senate to cover the extra costs. Chang served as housing chair for the No Frills conference. “Should you choose to fund the full amount or should you reduce it, I encourage you not to vote no on it in its entirety, because they really do need the support,” Chang said. Providing funding would help build the relationship between

UA students get retail tips at first ThinkBIG conference

Ryan Revock Arizona Daily Wildcat

For those interested in becoming retail entrepreneurs, the UA Retail Entrepreneurship Club is hosting its first ThinkBIG Conference on Saturday. Attendees will get to learn from local entrepreneurs about how to make their dreams a reality in the retail world. The conference runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will take place in the UA McClelland Park building. The conference costs $15 for UA students, $40 for community members and $5 for REC members. “If they [attendees] have an idea in their head but don’t know where to go, they can come to our conference and learn and take their idea and make it a reality,” said Sarah Cobb, the REC president and a retailing and consumer sciences senior. “This is really great because you are listening to people talk who have actually started with an idea and made their idea successful, and they are going to teach how they did it and what they overcame, their obstacles and challenges.” Kerstin Block, the founder of Buffalo Exchange, will be the keynote speaker at the conference, sharing the story of how she grew a single store into a national business. Following Block’s keynote speech, four entrepreneurs with diverse experiences will give a presentation called “From the Soil, to the Seed, to the Shoot and to the Fruit-Bearing Branch.” This portion of the conference is intended to teach attendees how to turn their ideas into a profitable business, Cobb said. The final segment of the conference is called “The ‘Get-to-Work’ Professionals Panel” and will feature experts from the areas of accounting, investing and funding, commercial real estate and marketing, who will speak on how attendees can put their own ideas into action, according to a press release for the conference. The REC was officially created in fall 2012 and the ThinkBIG Conference was one of its first ideas, said Nicole St. Germain, the

REC treasurer and retailing and consumer sciences senior. The club started with six members and has grown to 15 members. Another achievement of the club was Retail Jump Start, which took place in February. For Retail Jump Start, members pitched jump start ideas, which the club then voted on. From there the club broke into teams, created business plans for the three best ideas and gave a mock presentation to actual investors, St. Germain said, all within a 24-hour period from start to finish. The upcoming conference is not only a

great learning experience, but also a valuable networking opportunity, Cobb said. “I think that people should attend the ThinkBIG Conference because you can start a business through Google, you can look online, you can go through these different networks, but all of these specific networks are going to be in one area at one time,” said Jill Moore, the REC secretary and a retailing and consumer sciences senior. “You can learn from the people that get you there and you can ask them specific questions, and I think that is what is really cool.”

the student government and RHA, he added. However, senators hesitated to fund the full $2,784.18. “This is essentially a subsidy for every single student that attended this,” said Sen. Morgan Abraham. “In theory what happened is you didn’t charge these students the correct price, and now we’re asking for a subsidy to subsidize that cost.” IACURH, a regional association, is part of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls. In order to host No Frills for IACURH, RHA had to bid against other schools. “Then you must absorb the responsibilities by winning … just in the same way that a city that bids for the Olympics would have to,” said Anthony Salas, vice president for public relations for RHA. Although the cost of each attending delegate was budgeted for before the conference, unexpected costs came up for transportation, housing and dining, Chang said. Failing to pay for all of the conference’s expenditures “in a way reflects that we’re not paying membership dues,” Salas said. If funding for the extra costs is not provided by Sunday, RHA could lose its affiliation with IACURH, Chang said. Senators debated the consequences of providing more funding, saying that doing so would be paying for a mistake made by another organization. “This is putting the weight on our shoulders, to try to kind of get yourselves [RHA] out of the hole that you guys dig yourselves in,” Sen. Joel Torres said. The request was then amended to provide funding only for transportation, not housing and dining costs. The ASUA Senate’s 5-4 vote will provide RHA with $892.56. Chang thanked the senate for allocating part of the request. “Any little bit helps … Of course there are concerns that there were issues with how it was presented,” Sen. Chang said. “But I still do appreciate it.”

Wildcats tested for STDs on Mall Shelby Thomas Arizona Daily Wildcat

Local organizations gathered on the UA Mall to offer information about sexual health, free contraception methods and STD testing at the Get Yourself Tested Resource Fair on Wednesday. The Get Yourself Tested campaign works to combat a frightening statistic: “1 in 2 sexually active young people will contract an STD by age 25, and most won’t know it,” according to the campaign’s website. The campaign, a partnership between MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation, is supported by a number of agencies, many of which were represented on campus in honor of STD Awareness Month. Representatives from Campus Health Service, Feminists Organized to Resist, Create and Empower, the Pima County Health Department, Planned Parenthood, the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, the Student Health Advocacy Committee, the Southwest Institute for Research on Women and the Theresa Lee Clinic showed up to inform UA students about the importance of self-awareness when it comes to sex. Carrie Hardesty, a health educator for Campus Health, said it is important for students to be sexually aware. “We know that not all students are sexually active, but whether or not they are, they should have, and need to have, accurate and comprehensive sex education,” Hardesty

mascot called “Mr. Condom” also made an appearance. Zoe Warren, a public health junior, started volunteering with Planned Parenthood six years ago and said students should make testing a priority. “It is important for students to get tested because it is one of the only ways to tell if you really have something,” Warren said. “Many diseases or infections can go easily undetected. It is really easy and it is something that everyone can do.” Samantha Balland, a freshman studying nursing, said she came to the event for the free items and that she appreciated the education provided. “A lot of people aren’t aware of STDs that could be going around and you can’t see an STD that you may have,” Balland said. As far as getting tested, Balland said students shouldn’t feel embarrassed. “You’re in college, we all do [have sex]. It’s not a big deal.” Rebecca Cline, a physiology freshman who stopped by the booths with a friend on the way to lunch, agreed that it’s important to get tested, regardless of whether people Tyler Besh/Arizona Daily Wildcat feel uncomfortable.

John Routh, a member of the marketing committee for the UA’s Relay For Life chapter and a pre-business freshman, said that he is amazed at how many people cancer can affect.

Routh said he is most excited for the Luminaria Ceremony, where volunteers are given the chance to decorate and dedicate a paper bag to loved ones fighting cancer. The bags will then be lit with candles and displayed along the edge of the track, he said. This is the moment when it becomes clear “how many people have been affected by cancer,” Routh added. “It’s amazing.” The Luminaria Ceremony will take place at 9 p.m. The money raised at the event is donated to Pima County through the “Look Good Feel Better” program that helps breast cancer survivors get access to wigs and makeup to help them regain their self-esteem after going through chemotherapy

UA researcher receives grant, protects animals Mark Armao Arizona Daily Wildcat

A UA researcher is focusing his efforts on protecting Tucson animals through a new conservation project. Mesquite trees provide shade along a winding trail where bicyclists and walkers observe a diverse array of wildlife while nearby, the Santa Cruz river flows with summer rains. This is what Phil Rosen, a research scientist at the School of Natural Resources and the Environment, said he envisions when he thinks about his latest project. Rosen recently received a $285,000 contract spanning five years to protect lizards and other animals during the restoration of a section of the Santa Cruz in a bank protection project along the river from Silverlake Road to Ajo Way. The Paseo de las Iglesias bank protection project seeks to strengthen the banks of the watercourse and reduce erosion, as well as create recreational space. Ecological restoration is a major component of the project. The species he will be working to protect include the western burrowing owl, a favorite among local naturalists, and the regal horned lizard, which, despite its seemingly aristocratic name, is known to squirt blood from its eye at potential threats. “We have a lot of unique species in the area,” said Suzanne Shields, the director of the Regional Flood Control District. “It’s important to conserve them.” In line with the Endangered Species Act and the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan, the RFCD aims at “creating riparian habitats and encouraging the native species,” Shields said.

Rosen will work to protect several species during construction, and also to ensure they have a suitable place to return after the project ends. “We’re creating an ecosystem,” Rosen said. Rosen plans to collect and translocate some species to areas around Tucson, but some of the lizards will stay onsite in specially designed containment pens. A fine-mesh screen will cover the pen on all sides, including the bottom, Rosen said. The pens will imitate the natural environment of the lizards while protecting them from an unfortunate encounter with a bulldozer. After construction, the pen material will be reused to build a fence to keep the reptiles from the roadways that surround the area. Although some might not see the point of conducting a conservation project in the middle of the city, Tucson is home to 19 different species of lizards, Rosen said. “There are undoubtedly more lizards living in the city than people, probably by a factor of five or 10,” Rosen added. In light of recent declines in some lizard populations, Rosen said that conservation projects are imperative. However, those efforts don’t end at lizards, as saving toads is also a key aspect of the project. Rosen said he will create special basins to encourage breeding in species like the Mexican spadefoot and the Great Plains narrowmouth toad and that the basins will also be designed to reduce the propagation of a major human health risk: mosquitoes. Along with housing the toads, the basins will be inhabited by animals that eat mosquito larvae, which can accumulate in stagnant water. The western burrowing owl will also be accommodated

during construction. Rosen and his team will construct artificial nesting sites for the owls displaced by the project, then reintroduce them into the environment afterward. Rosen said he is confident in the value of conservation projects. “This biodiversity is both enjoyable and aesthetic to large numbers of people and very valuable to young folks, who revel in this kind of thing,” Rosen said. “People like these [animals]. They like to have them around.”

Bergersen, a psychology and political science junior and an intern with Pride Alliance, said this was her first year participating in the Day of Silence. She recalled a moment during the day when someone had opened a door for her, and she reflexively wanted to say thank you but couldn’t. She couldn’t even answer any questions about what she was doing. “Whenever someone said something to me and I wanted to say something back, I remembered people that don’t have that opportunity, people who are too scared to say something,” Bergersen said.

Tucson roads need aid DAVID WEISSMAN Arizona Daily Wildcat


nyone who has spent time driving in Tucson knows that our roads are sub-par. The Pima Association of Governments, a federally funded local nonprofit that focuses on metropolitan planning, recently released a “report card” in which it confirmed what everyone already knows: Tucson’s roads are terrible. The report found that 52.4 percent of the city’s roads are in poor condition, about 43 percent are in fair to good condition, and only 4.5 percent of Tucson’s roads are “excellent.” In addition, the study gave a congestion grade of “F” to 15 percent of the city’s intersections, indicating they had reported morning rushhour delays of 80 seconds or more. The worst intersection in Tucson is Ajo Way and Alvernon Way, with an average delay of 3.3 minutes per vehicle. It is commendable that this report recognizes the problems facing Tucson’s infrastructure, especially considering that Phoenix’s equivalent of the PAG, the Maricopa Association of Governments, has not released a report that takes such a frank look at road conditions and congestion. But simply recognizing the problem is not enough. It’s about time that the city does something to fix Tucson’s roads. As Tucson’s image improves through new business developments and projects such as the Tucson Modern Streetcar, the road systems must improve with it. This is necessary not only for the city to deal with increased traffic, but also to truly project a modern image. Downtown Tucson’s continuing development will feed congestion, as will the streetcar. Even though the number of drivers may decrease in the downtown area, the streetcar will cause congestion problems for those who continue to drive there. The streetcar does not go everywhere, so commuters from other parts of Tucson will still crowd the roads. Even with Tucson’s numerous ongoing infrastructure projects, such as the work being done at Grant and Oracle roads and the Prince Road exit off I-10 and the many roads that will be resurfaced as a result of the streetcar project, there is still much to be done. Tucson’s streets are riddled with potholes, a virtual minefield for drivers. This can be a huge inconvenience to drivers and cost them hundreds in repairs to damaged tires, rims and shocks. The budget for transportation is the highest of all of the city’s departments. The total actual budget for transportation was $198,956,290 in 2012. Of course, not all of that money goes toward repairs. A combined $27,167,869 was allocated to the streets and traffic maintenance, planning and engineering programs in 2012. Also, much of the road work that is being done is not on roads around the UA. Work is being done on many other roads in Tucson, but not on those that many students use regularly. While the PAG is funded with federal highway money and is more of a planning organization than an agency of the local government, many of its executive staff are also members of local government. Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild is the chair of the governing body of the organization, for example, and other area mayors and officials also serve in PAG. Their powerful positions in the Pima County government mean that they have the ability to make the right recommendations to improve Tucson’s infrastructure. Let’s just hope that the people who commissioned this report respond to its findings. —David Weissman is a journalism junior. He can be reached at or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.

Police Beat MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Drunk and disorderly

A UA student was cited and released on a minor in possession charge outside of Villa del Puente Residence Hall after starting a fight at 2:30 a.m. on April 12. Two University of Arizona Police Department officers came in contact with the student when they approached a group of five men arguing on the sidewalk outside the residence hall. Police asked the group to break it up and told them to sit on the curb. One of the men told police he’d overheard his friend arguing with another possibly intoxicated man, who was cursing and taunting his friend. The friend said he had been walking outside the residence hall when the other man began cursing at him. Another officer then spoke with the man accused of initiating the incident, who became argumentative. He denied drinking, but police suspected he was lying because he showed signs of intoxication, according to the report. The man soon admitted he had had a “few drinks.” He was cited for minor in possession of spirituous liquor in body and released.

Hands off, ‘bro’

A UA student reported that he was assaulted in the Meinel Optical Sciences building at 4:36 p.m. on April 12. The incident had occurred several hours earlier while he was waiting outside a classroom, the student said. While not injured, the man said a stranger had punched him in the arm and said, “Hey, bro,” before laughing and walking away. A similar offense had occurred a week earlier, when the same man had slapped him on the arm with an open hand and said, “Hey, bro.” The officer then spoke with a witness who didn’t know the suspect, but had seen him raise both fists in the air and laugh after slapping the man. The victim described the suspect to police, saying he felt as if he was being targeted, but not in danger. There are currently no suspects, but the student said he would prosecute once the man was identified.

A case of mistaken identity

A UA student was asked to identify himself after several students and faculty failed to recognize him in Roy P. Drachman Hall at 4:20 p.m. on April 12. UAPD went to the building after receiving the report, and the reporting party led them to the individual. The reporting party said they were suspicious of the man, who was working in a computer room, because of a previous time when the man had failed to identify himself. When police spoke to the man, he was visibly upset due to the request. He said he was being “profiled” and became agitated, then began to pack his belongings. Police performed a records check, found the man was a student and told him he didn’t have to leave because he wasn’t violating any policies. The student repeated that he felt he was being profiled and knew who was responsible for the report. As police left, they saw the man speaking with a university employee, but he refused an offer to speak with police.

Freshman Grant Jerrett declaring for 2013 Draft

UA’s Troupe ‘bounced back’ after shaky outing

zack rosenblatt & cameron moon Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona freshman forward Grant Jerrett is headed to the NBA after one season with the Wildcats, head coach Sean Miller and Jerrett announced last night. “Today, with the support of my family, I made the decision to enter the 2013 NBA Draft and pursue my lifelong dream of playing professional basketball,” Jerrett said in a statement. “I would like to thank all Wildcat fans, my teammates and coaches for making my year in Tucson an incredible experience. I will forever be an Arizona Wildcat.” Rumors surfaced days ago that Jerrett was entertaining the thought of leaving, but his high school coach, Eric Cooper, told’s Jeff Goodman that “Grant has no intention of going in the draft at this time.” Just days later, Jerrett appears to have changed his mind. He had until April 28 to decide his future. “I would like to wish Grant well as he pursues his goal of becoming part of the NBA,” Miller said in a statement. “Not only is Grant a talented player, but he is an even better person with a wonderful and supportive family. I look forward to helping him in any way that I can as he moves forward in his basketball career.” This season for the Wildcats, Jerrett averaged 5.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and a team-high 1.0 blocks per game in 34 games. Jerrett found most of his success from behind the 3-point line, shooting 40.5 percent from beyond the arc. More than 50 percent of Jerrett’s total field goals last season were 3-pointers. Jerrett was a member of last season’s No. 3 rated recruiting class along with frontcourt mates Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski. Next season, the Wildcats are bringing in the fifth-best recruiting class with 5-star forward Aaron Gordon of San Jose, Calif., leading the way in terms of star power. Jerrett is currently projected to go undrafted by DraftExpress and The 2013 NBA Draft is scheduled for June 27 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

He had it when he pitched the final out in Arizona’s College World Series-clinching game against South Carolina in June. He had it when he opened the season as Arizona’s closer and climbed up the UA all-time leaderboard with eight saves in the Wildcats’ first 33 games. Mathew Troupe’s beard has been with him for most of his Arizona career. That is, until Monday. “It’s all gone,” Troupe said. It took him just 10 minutes to shave off the facial hair he grew out over the last three months. “It lost its intimidation factor,” he said, with a smile. “No, it’s just time to shake things up a little bit. I had a couple rough outings.” Troupe had one of his lesser outings of the season against Washington State on Saturday, allowing three runs and three walks in one-third of an inning. The Wildcats still won the game 6-5, but the damage was done. Before that game, Troupe (2-0) had a 1.56 ERA in 17 appearances. After, he had a 2.72. “I partly blame myself for not catching that game,” said catcher

UA tries to rebound against UCLA EVAN ROSENFELD Arizona Daily Wildcat

After being no-hit and the victim of a perfect game during Oregon’s sweep last weekend, the No. 22 Arizona softball team hopes to bounce back as it takes on No. 18 UCLA at Hillenbrand Stadium in a three-game series that starts tonight. Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN 2 and Friday and Saturday’s games will be shown on ESPN U and the Pac-12 Networks, respectively. UCLA holds a 66-54 game advantage over the Wildcats, most recently taking two of three against Arizona in 2012 in Los Angeles. The Bruins have won seven of the last eight series dating back to 2005. “I think we have to just get rid of some distractions we are bringing into the game,” head coach Mike Candrea said. “At the point we are at right now, it’s a mental game. We have to get rid of the tension and negative thoughts. I know we have the potential and if we come out with positive thoughts, I think we can execute.” The Bruins are coming fresh off a big series win against No. 8 Cal as UCLA took two of three last week against the Golden Bears to snap a streak of four consecutive Pac-12 series losses. UCLA will be led offensively by B.B. Bates and Stephany LaRosa and will depend on Ally Carda in the circle. The Wildcats need to use caution when facing the heart of the Bruin’s lineup, as Bates is hitting .331 with ten doubles, 15 home runs and 45 RBI. LaRosa will enter play in possession of a .368 average with eight doubles, three triples, nine home runs and 35 RBI.

give them that walk, you kind of feel momentum shift, and you don’t want that. I gotta go out there and throw strikes.” As for his beard? By Wednesday’s practice, it had already started growing back. Whether or not he grows it out again, though, remains to be seen. “It’s one of those things,” Moore said. “Sometimes you keep it, sometimes you take it away. Judging from his performance against ASU, I think it’s all right.”

After being shut out last weekend against Oregon, Arizona hopes to have some luck off Carda. She holds a 19-7 record this year with a 2.39 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 146.1 innings pitched. “This weekend I’m expecting a lot of adjustments,” sophomore Chelsea Suitos said. “I expect us to have a better game plan at the plate and execute. Personally, I want to lay off the rise ball and be able to get ahead early in the count.” Suitos will look to contribute to the Wildcat’s offense. She has led Arizona this month, hitting .411 (12-34) over her last 12 games. Sophomore Hallie Wilson will also look to put a dent in UCLA’s defense, as she currently leads the Wildcats with a .415 batting average in conference games. “I’m hoping that we can put last week in perspective,” Wilson said. “We need to come back stronger, fire up our bats and get some hits. I’m excited to play one of our oldest rivals in UCLA.” With the Wildcats hungry for redemption, Candrea said he hopes this upcoming series can provide the turnaround the team needs. “[This weekend] can really be a turning point for us,” Candrea said. “It’s a weekend that we are home and celebrating Hillenbrand’s 20th. I’m glad that we’re here and I think we are really going to deliver if we come out strong and get the first one tomorrow.” This weekend will also mark history as Hillenbrand Stadium celebrates its 20th anniversary and welcomes Wildcat softball alumni back to its hallowed grounds. Over the past 20 years of the stadium’s history, the Wildcats have won 580 out of 646 games, compiling an impressive .898 winning percentage.

Gordon makes it official

Arizona commit Aaron Gordon signed his letter of intent on Wednesday, making his addition to the Wildcats for next season official. Gordon announced his commitment to the Wildcats on April 2 before the McDonald’s All-Star Game, but couldn’t officially sign with Arizona until yesterday — the start of the NLI signing period. Gordon signed his letter at his high school, Archbishop Mitty High School, in San Jose, Calif., on Wednesday morning. He is expected to enroll in July. “We are excited to welcome Aaron Gordon into our basketball family,” Miller said. “Aaron is the ultimate winner. He has won multiple California state championships, which speaks for itself. He’s also a great teammate, incredibly unselfish and a relentless competitor.” Gordon had been considering Oregon,

Kentucky and Washington in addition to Arizona. The day after announcing his commitment to the Wildcats, Gordon shone in the McDonald’s Game in Chicago, tallying 24 points and eight rebounds with nine dunks. He didn’t do quite as well in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 12 in New York, though. “Definitely was not my best,” Gordon said on Twitter after the Jordan game. “Tomorrow’s a new day. Best believe I’m gunna be in the gym tomorrow. Good or bad.” Gordon, who is listed at 6-foot-8 and 205 pounds, rose in’s final 2013 recruit rankings, leapfrogging Duke commit Jabari Parker as the No. 3-ranked recruit in the nation. Arizona’s other recruits, McDonald’s AllAmerican small forward Rondae HollisJefferson and guard Elliott Pitts, came in at No. 21 and 126, respectively.

Danny Martin puts printmaking to use Working primarily in black and white printmaking and illustration and some mixed media, Martin’s art deliberately lacks color. The decidedly polarizing contrasts result in the whimsy of his vintage Western and pop culture images. His art ghost of the Wild West haunts Tucson’s art scene. Visitors might catch glimpses of iconographic culture is not simple in the least. “My images just don’t look as good in color because that’s not tucked neatly into the crevices of streets downtown, framed on walls and strewn about alleyways. The black and the way I’m thinking, that’s not the way I’m seeing it,” he said. Even Martin’s outlook reflects the black and white nature white art, stark and robust, is a familiar sight to passersby, of his art. He regards his work as a self-fulfilling journey, though the artist may be unknown to them. one in which he is creating a lasting image of the past and Now a mystery no more, artist Danny Martin is causing a establishing his own longevity as an artist. good ole-fashioned stir in Tucson’s art scene. “It’s not referencing the original history, it’s referencing the With a Southern drawl indicative of his sweet Alabama mythology of the history, which is what media is,” Martin said roots, 33-year-old Martin is a trailblazer in the town, and he’s of his work. “It’s our mythology, it’s our storytelling.

Flaming Lips bring ‘Terror’ ALEX WHELAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

Even before The Flaming Lips reinvented themselves in the late 1990s to become the world’s most inspiring carnival, the band was always approachable. Maybe it’s the general dearth of humor or Wayne Coyne’s friendly vocals that usually brings warmth to even Lips’ most radical ideas, but there are several moments on The Terror that

simply don’t sound like the band that birthed it. Electronically-influenced jam track “You Lust” peels back the fuzzy ’60s guitars that made 2009‘s Embryonic, the Lips’ last proper full-length, so successful. Instead, “You Lust” finds Coyne menacingly cooing, “You’ve gotta lot of nerves to fuck with me” over a desolate nine-minute soundscape that calls up the finer moments of David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy with Brian Eno. Likewise, the spacey distance of the track “The Terror” combines an effervescent keyboard, a clinking club rhythm and drowning vocal effects in a way that vaguely recalls Radiohead’s The King of Limbs. Such experimentation is certainly not unwelcome, particularly when you’re dealing with a band historically as consistent as The Flaming Lips. However, it can be a little startling to realize that “Look … The Sun Is Rising,” the album’s opening track, is probably as close as The Terror gets to sounding like the Lips of old, simply because of how bouncy the rhythm is. One of the more frustrating things for Flaming Lips fans will be the band’s newfound

lack of attention to melody. “Be Free, A Way” in songwriting. On previous releases like At is a beautiful ambient track that finds Coyne War With the Mystics and Yoshimi Battles singing a hypnotic melody akin to the warped The Pink Robots, the band was more than AM radio-pop of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, capable of delivering the hooks, but began to grow stagnant in its brand but the melody never of overwhelmingly bright really pops or sticks and busy arrangements. as it did on previous Conversely, Terror tracks records. like “You Are Alone” and Similarly, The “Turning Violent” are much Terror’s closer less immediate and more “Always There … In carefully constructed, Our Hearts” has an with silence and droning unsettling vocal hook synthesizers often providing that closes out the powerful counterpoints to album on a suitably Coyne’s disaffected vocal dark note, but Coyne stylings. and company never What closer “Always deviate from the There … In Our Hearts” may melody enough lack in vocal hooks it more to warrant the PHOTO COURTESY OF FLAMINGLIPS.COM than makes up for in its lengths to which it chilling low-end percussion is repeated over the and violin-like guitar staccato. Although course of four minutes. However, the flip side to this lack of at times The Terror can’t quite live up to melody is the astounding progression of the Lips’ previous heights, it’s certainly a The Flaming Lips’ understanding of sound fascinating turn.
