University Boulevard closure to start today By Stephanie Casanova DAILY WILDCAT
A part of University Boulevard will be closed starting today, affecting traffic on four residential blocks. The closure, which is slated to last four months for streetcar construction, will affect west of Euclid Avenue to Bean Avenue. It will force the closure of the intersections of University Boulevard and Bean Avenue and Second, Jacobus and First avenues to through traffic. Euclid will remain open. Tim Gebbia, a junior studying materials science and engineering, said he has already been affected by streetcar construction and that this new closure will hinder his driving to campus and around University Boulevard. “I have to take detours and such. It’ll be kind of annoying,” Gebbia said. “But you kind of have to do that (close streets) if you’re going to have a project like this.” The closure on University adds to ongoing closures on Fourth Avenue from Sixth Street to University Boulevard and on Congress Street between Toole and Stone avenues. Second Street between Park Avenue and Olive Road has also been closed since April 23 and is expected to remain closed until Sunday. Val Timin, inventory manager at American Apparel, a

RecycleMania numbers fail to illustrate whole picture By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT
Numbers never lie. But they may not tell you everything. During 2009, the UA reportedly recycled more than 1 million pounds of material over 10 weeks, placing fourth among hundreds of universities nationwide in a competition called RecycleMania, according to a UANews article published on April 17, 2009. While the UA did place fourth, it didn’t actually save “more than 1 million pounds” of recyclables from the landfills. According to official RecycleMania records, it only saved 863,192. Where those extra 150,000 pounds of recycling came from is anybody’s guess. But here’s the kicker: One year later, the UA’s RecycleMania statistics plummeted, regardless of which number you use. In 2010, the UA ranked 27th and recycled only 446,258 pounds of material. In 2011, the UA brought in 512,822 pounds and ranked 21st. This year, the UA recycled 420,295 pounds and ranked 36th. “Wow, that’s a lot,” said RecycleMania President Bill Rudy when he learned about the UA’s sustained 50 percent drop. He later

added that such dramatic decreases are “not entirely unheard of.” “Accuracy is important,” Rudy said, “but I would probably say it’s secondary.” If accuracy comes second, then RecycleMania’s overall goal of encouraging college students and staff to up their recycling comes first. The competition aims to reduce waste at universities by promoting campus recycling programs and motivating schools to keep track of how much they recycle. The UA competes for RecycleMania’s Gorilla Prize, which looks for the university that recycles the most tonnage without taking into account campus population. In the past, only UA residence halls participated in RecycleMania, but in 2009, Facilities Management and Residence Life came together to get the entire campus involved. “That’s when we started doing well in the competition,” said Jill Ramirez, sustainability coordinator for Residence Life. However, in the three years since the UA’s award-winning 2009 success, its recycling levels have remained relatively the same, which raises the question if the UA is achieving RecycleMania’s primary goal. “There’s lots of reasons why the numbers

were a little wonky that first year we competed as a campus,” Ramirez said. “Basically, we came in fourth place, but we were still learning how to report our numbers. That’s kind of the short version.” It turns out no one can pinpoint exactly why the UA’s RecycleMania 2009 numbers were, as Ramirez said, “wonky.” But there are a few possibilities.
UAPD arrests Turner after DUI suspicion By Zack Rosenblatt DAILY WILDCAT
Because 2009 was the first year Residence Life joined forces with Facilities Management, the procedure for reporting the UA’s recycling levels may have been convoluted, Ramirez said.
Former UA point guard Josiah Turner was arrested on suspicion of DUI by campus police, a UAPD official said Sunday. Turner was arrested within the last week, according to University of Arizona Police Department officer Joe Bermudez. No further details or a full police report were available as of Sunday. The freshman guard from Sacramento, Calif., averaged 6.6 points and 2.7 assists per game for the Wildcats during Pac-12 Conference play, but will transfer after being suspended twice for unspecified violations of team rules. Turner was first suspended for Arizona’s December matchup with the Florida Gators and then was indefinitely suspended prior to the Pac-12 tournament and the

Painkiller prescriptions on the rise Surge in sales of pills creates health concerns in Arizona and nation By Brittny Mejia DAILY WILDCAT
With the sales of prescription painkillers rising around the nation, state health and government officials are stressing the need to increase efforts to monitor and dispose of certain medications. The leading cause of unintentional deaths in Arizona and around the nation is the result of poisoning and drug overdose, according to Keith Boesen, director of the Arizona
Poison and Drug Information Center. Boesen said more people die from these each year than they do from car accidents. One of the biggest contributors to this rise is narcotic pain relievers such as hydrocodone and oxycodone, Boesen said. Having so many of these drugs available is concerning, he said, because it allows easy access for many people, which can lead to an increase in deaths. “We have seen an increase over the past several years in calls about exposures to or questions about narcotic pain relievers,” Boesen said. “Those drugs are becoming a bigger percentage of the drugs involved in exposures.” In Arizona last year, more than 2.2

million people were given hydrocodone prescriptions and almost 2 million people were prescribed oxycodone, said Dean Wright, the prescription monitoring program director for the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy. These are the two most prescribed drugs in the state, he added. The Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program “requires the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy (ASBP) to establish a controlled substances prescription monitoring program and requires pharmacies and medical practitioners who dispense controlled substances listed in Schedule II, III, and IV to a patient, to report prescription information to the Board of Pharmacy on a weekly basis,” according to the
ASBP website. Although practitioners and pharmacists are required to register, it is not required for them to use the database, Wright said. At the end of the year, the number of practitioners who had access to the system was a little more than 14 percent and the number of pharmacists who had access was about 11 or 12 percent, he said. The number of those requesting access continues to increase, Wright added, and there is an attempt to further increase that number. “It could have some impact on sales if we could stop the sale to those who are misusing abusing, or diverting drugs,” Wright said.

Banquet honors outreach efforts, grant By Samantha Munsey Daily Wildcat
The College of Engineering celebrated its achievements in outreach as well as the receipt of a $3 million grant this year. The UA’s Women in Science, Engineering and Technology program, also known as WISE, hosted the sixth annual Science and Engineering Excellence Banquet at the Riverpark Inn near downtown Tucson. The banquet, titled “Lighting the Way,” recognized staff, students and local companies and organizations that promote diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine. “It is exciting and incredible to see an entire year of work come together for this banquet,” said November Papaleo, director of WISE and a lecturer in the Women’s Studies department. “There are so many people and organizations that help us, it feels that saying thank you is not enough so that is why we have this celebration.” WISE aims to motivate female students to enter careers related to the science, engineering, technology and medical fields. But the program is open to any student interested in increasing diversity to the research community. “I think that a lot of people sometimes see science and engineering as a male career,” said Ali
Fischer, a nutritional sciences junior. “So I think that it is cool to represent women who are in the field as well.” WISE organizes outreach programs for local middle and high schools. It also provides involvement opportunities for UA students, like mentoring programs and event hosting, to get Tucson’s youth interested in science. “My experience in WISE has been great,” said Alyssa Salanga, a physiology junior and intern with WISE. “You get to meet people who have the same interests as you and it is kind of like a little family.” This academic year, WISE received a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to expand its outreach program to schools in the Pascua Yaqui Tribe for the next three years, according to Papaleo. “We will be working hand and hand with local reservations and doing third through eighth grade mentoring,” Papaleo said. In addition to recognizing the grant, WISE also handed out awards to staff, students and supporters for excellence in the technology and science fields over the last year. Madeline Saunders, president of WISE and a chemistry junior, won the Presidential Award for Service for her contributions in the program. “I am very honored to get this award,” Saunders said. “I have been with WISE for a long time and I have seen so much improvement in the program and it has been great to be a

part of it.” Russell Chipman, a professor for the College of Optical Sciences and the event’s keynote speaker, said he has been encouraging more women to become doctoral candidates in his college. By doing so, he said, there will
be more mentors for young women interested in studying science. In the past six years, Chipman has helped four doctoral students complete their degrees. “What WISE is doing to help encourage women in both middle
school and high school is so very important,” Chipman said. “Without an escalator of women coming into undergraduate school, graduate school and faculty positions, we won’t have the women mentors that we really need.”

Students pose for a group picture at Pride Alliance’s annual Second Chance Prom on Friday. The event aimed to recreate high school prom for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.
LGBT students get a second chance prom By Ashley Grove For
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students were given the opportunity to take their preferred partner to prom at ASUA Pride Alliance’s annual Second Chance Prom on Friday. Because many high school students give in to the social pressures to take someone of the opposite sex to prom, many LGBT students do not have a “second chance” to attend prom with someone they want. Second Chance Prom re-created a high school prom and attendees were able to enjoy music, dancing, food and raffle prizes in an accepting and inclusive way. Stephan Przybylowicz, co-director of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Pride Alliance and a graduate student studying information resources and library science, said the experience differed greatly from his high school prom. “This is really great for people who did not get the experience in high school,” Przybylowicz said. “When I was in high school, nobody was out.” Second Chance Prom aimed to give students a safe place to celebrate their identity at the UA, according to Greg Daniels, an intern with Pride Alliance and the event’s coordinator. It also helped give his club more exposure to LGBT and allied students both on and off campus. Daniels said the UA is the perfect place to host this type of event. “It’s a very progressive place,” he said. “We definitely have a good deal here. ASU and NAU are really jealous of what we’re doing.” Allegra Ruiz, a psychology freshman, said the event successfully re-created a high school prom. “You actually get to do prom the way you

want to do it,” Ruiz said. “It definitely exceeded my expectations.” Second Chance Prom royalty was selected at random. Instead of through voting, participants put their names on raffle tickets. The crowning was also gender neutral. That way, students could place their names in the drawing for whatever gender they identify with. “Prom is a huge cultural signifier of the teenager experience, and it’s really important that everyone gets that experience,” Przybylowicz said. “I liked the way that we did the royalty. It’s not a popularity contest and everybody has a chance.” Mary K. Underwood, a sophomore and attendee, said she wouldn’t have changed a thing from the event. “I showed up and wore exactly what I wanted, which was a bow tie, a vest and a button down,” Underwood said. Underwood performed in drag, along with other students, to entertain guests. “I just had an absolute blast,” Underwood said. Ivanna Cox, a drag queen who performed at the event, said she was happy that a lot of people from the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation attended the prom to show their support. Others, like Pride Alliance intern Chris Sogge, said he wished more people would come to other events hosted by the club. “I know that a lot of the time it can be really nerve-racking, you’ll think you’ll be ousted if you go here, or if you’re an ally in the community people will assume that you’re not straight because you’re hanging out with a bunch of gay people,” Sogge said. Despite fears of stigma, Sogge said he isn’t bothered either way. “We have a good time, and I think that people should definitely try to come to Second Chance Prom next year,” he added.
“Reducing that and having practitioners looking and evaluating their patients through access to our system helps them to make better decisions as far as how they’re going to prescribe.” Another concern with increased sales of pain medication is that patients who no longer need certain medications will leave them in a place where they are easily accessible to others. “We should really protect anyone who might have access to medications by locking them up and then, when you’re done with the drugs, we need to destroy them,” Boesen said. “Don’t save them for a rainy day, we need to destroy them.” In Tucson, the Drug Enforcement Administration has sponsored “medication take back events,” such as one on Saturday at the University of Arizona Police Department. This was the third “take back” event hosted on campus. The first two took place last year. These events are beneficial to the environment, because they prevent people

from flushing dangerous or narcotic drugs where the chemicals can get into the ground, said Joe Bermudez, a crime prevention officer with UAPD. Another benefit is general safety and prevention, he said. “We’re giving the community an opportunity to dispose of these medications that are either expired, unwanted or unused,” Bermudez said. “It prevents these types of medications and drugs from getting in the wrong hands.”

Dissidents risk arrest for Arizona Daily Wildcat Monday Mega supporting an escapee Market MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
BEIJING — Supporters of human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, who fled house arrest and is reportedly at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, are now facing police detention, activists in the U.S. and China said Sunday. The threat of official retribution highlights the complexity of the crisis as U.S. officials are believed to be trying to find a viable solution to the unexpected diplomatic standoff with Beijing. Whether that includes Chen’s friends remains to be seen. Human rights experts said priority would be given to Chen’s wife and daughter in any negotiations to secure protection. Officials at the embassy and in Washington have still not confirmed or denied that they are keeping Chen, 40, a lawyer who was imprisoned for exposing forced sterilizations and other abuses by authorities and was placed under house arrest after his release in September 2010. Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell arrived in Beijing on Sunday, days before he was scheduled to appear at a long-planned meeting of senior U.S. and Chinese leaders that includes U.S.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Among Chen’s network of friends most at risk is Hu Jia, a longtime government critic and AIDS activist who reportedly met with Chen when he arrived in Beijing earlier this week. Hu has been in police custody since Saturday afternoon. Hu’s wife, Zeng Jinyan, was also told to turn herself in for police questioning Sunday, but the mother of one refused. Hu was held by police without sleep for 24 hours and released late Sunday. “We don’t want to see anyone hurt or detained because of Chen’s escape,” Zeng said in a phone interview from her home in Beijing. “But supporters who are helping are under pressure.” The couple, along with He Peirong, a longtime activist from the southern city of Nanjing, and Guo Yushan, a Beijing-based scholar, helped Chen break free from 19 months of house detention — an ordeal imposed without any criminal charges. He, who surreptitiously drove Chen several hundred miles from his village in eastern Shandong province to Beijing, was arrested Friday, according to human rights workers. Guo has been
incommunicado since Saturday. The status of Chen’s wife and daughter remains unknown. His nephew has been detained for allegedly fighting local officials, activists said. Chinese and American officials are now negotiating what to do with Chen, according to Bob Fu, president of the China Aid Association, a Christian group in Texas that has promoted Chen’s cause. “At this point, I’m more worried about Hu, He and Guo than Chen Guangcheng,” said Nicholas Bequelin, a Hong Kong-based researcher for Human Rights Watch. Bequelin said Beijing would have to face significant pressure not to punish those who aided Chen. Hu is especially vulnerable because he remains under socalled political deprivation after serving a prison term for subverting state power. Joshua Rosenzweig, a human rights researcher in Hong Kong, said Chen’s friends could be facing short-term detention so that authorities can learn how the blind dissident carried out his dramatic escape. “Often what goes on is round-theclock interrogation without rest,” Rosenzweig said. “It’s the only window of time police can do anything they want.”
CHICAGO — Stepping off the elevator in stiletto boots and a black skirt, Jennifer Hudson draws a few sideways glances as she walks with her entourage to a Cook County courtroom where her former brother-in-law is standing trial in the killings of her mother, brother and nephew. Not a single onlooker, however, says a word or tries to approach her. No one even offers a sympathetic smile. Hudson’s protective bubble remains unpierced inside the courtroom, where only three members of the public have waited in line that day to watch the proceedings. She takes a seat in the fourth row and bows her head. In a courthouse known for its grittiness and occasional lack of decorum, Hudson is given rare deference. People have largely left her alone during the first week of the high-profile trial, going so far as to stay out of the courtroom on most days and resisting the urge to snap pictures of her with their cellphones. Even two groups of star-struck high school girls who attended Friday’s proceedings kept their distance. County employees had worried about a more chaotic scene with a media frenzy and public fawning greater than even those shown at the trials of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich or singer R. Kelly. Those concerns, however, have not yet materialized thanks to Hudson’s intentionally low profile, the judge’s strict courtroom rules and the public’s apparent willingness to give Hudson some space. “I wouldn’t bother her,” said Channelle

Jones, who saw Hudson while she waited for a friend’s case to be called in another courtroom. “The girl has been through enough. She doesn’t need people all in her face.” Jones is one of the few people who have seen Hudson outside the courtroom. Except for the brief moments when she walks from the elevators to a secluded waiting area each day, the Academy Award-winning actress does not mix with the general public.
Prosecutors planned it like this to keep their most famous — and most sympathetic — witness away from the spotlight during the proceedings. They have gone to extraordinary lengths to protect her, including driving her to the courthouse each morning and allowing her to enter through a back door. Hudson rides a private elevator to the fifth floor each morning, then waits in a small conference room adjacent to the courtroom for testimony to begin. At the midday break, she returns to the same conference room, where she eats a lunch brought in by someone in her entourage. If she needs a bathroom break, security guards clear the restroom so she can have some privacy. She does not enter or exit through the courthouse lobby each day like Blagojevich or Kelly did in their trials, preventing daily photographs or videos of her. No mainstream media have snapped a photo of Hudson at the courthouse, though not for lack of trying. Photographers staked out alternative entrances to the courthouse on the first day of testimony, and one news agency put a deer stand on the street outside, hoping to get a shot of her coming in through the back door. “Is the state taking extreme measures to protect her? I think I would do the same thing if I was a prosecutor in this case,” says Terry Sullivan, a former Cook County assistant state’s attorney who is as the judge’s media liaison during the trial. “That’s the difference between a celebrity defendant and a celebrity who is a victim.”

College students count in elections Megan Hurley Daily Wildcat
o matter if it has to do with re-election or not, politicians are kidding themselves if they pretend that college students are not an important part of their constituent base. President Barack Obama is traveling to college campuses across the nation. According to the Los Angeles Times, House Speaker John A. Boehner said, “This is beneath the dignity of the White House,” arguing that Obama’s focus is on getting re-elected, not tackling the debt issue. It’s hard to see how talking to college students is an undignified thing for the president to do. Obviously Obama is trying to get re-elected and interacting with the voting community is the right thing to do. Obama said he plans to keep student loan interest rates down, a dilemma that Congress can’t seem to solve on top of everything else that gets subjected to its gridlock. If student loan interest rates go up, legislators will face the wrath of college students and their cash-strapped parents. The higher interest rates climb, the higher the chance of losing a bid at re-election. Obama isn’t just trying to get votes. He’s trying to save face for the executive branch, but also government in general. Education is a bipartisan issue. If no one makes a decision by July 1 concerning student loan interest rates, they will double from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent, according to the Los Angeles Times. College students build the future. Boehner cannot say that college students are unworthy of the White House when he is supposed to be looking out for them. If the president is willing to speak honestly with the people that elected him and could elect him again, he should be respected. Obama can have whatever reason he wants for coming to colleges. Politicians like Boehner need to recognize that college students help decide who will keep a seat in Congress. College students can vote like other adults. They pay interest on student loans. They matter. Sure, they do not have the reach of special interest groups or the influence of wealthy businessmen, but students are important. Soon they will be making the important decisions for this nation and politicians need to stop and think before they insult them. Students should not be considered inferior because they are not stationed at the White House with other lobbyists. Most of these politicians had a time in their life when they were studying for finals and trying to memorize every element in the periodic table. Instead of treating them as some subgroup of political participation, politicians should realize that students represent the hard work and dedication ingrained in the foundation of the United States. Obama should not receive a scolding for reaching out to the future of the United States. The reason shouldn’t matter. The fact that he is putting out the effort is all that people should care about. Boehner needs to stop complaining about college students and start looking out for them. — Megan Hurley is a journalism junior.

Raising student-athletes’ GPA minimum sends right message Serena Valdez Daily Wildcat
eginning in 2016, the NCAA will require high school athletes to have a 2.3 grade point average to participate in immediate competition, up from the current minimum of 2.0. You have to give kudos to the sports community for raising academic standards and stopping the stereotype of athletes being dumb jocks. But the Division I Board of Directors voted the new regulation be delayed a year from its original vote of 2015 last October. This way, prospective collegiate athletes have more time to meet the minimum. The class of 2016 is only in eighth grade now. Pushing the requirement’s start date to 2016
gives those eighth graders all four years of high school to prepare. Giving high school athletes time to get their academics together is a smart move. However, it doesn’t make sense to give the class of 2015 a freebie, considering they’d only been in high school for two or three months when the regulation passed. They have plenty of time to suck it up and push as hard in the classroom as they do in practice. Many students can have a rocky start in high school because of the difference in academic expectations, increased homework and harder curriculum. Nearly a fourth of students who had been in the top
quartile of their eighth-grade class fall “off-track” by the time they complete ninth grade, according to the February 2011 Research Brief on the Challenges of the Ninth Grade Transition. So it’s not just the athletes who will struggle to do well in high school. One of every four students in the class will have problems. To combat this, there are programs and efforts made by middle school administrators that focus on ensuring a smooth transition from middle school to high school. What makes athletes so different then? There isn’t much of a difference between an eighth grader and a student who’s been in high school for roughly three months. The change isn’t exactly dramatic, but it was a concern of coaches and higher education administrators. Freshman year in high school is the transitional period that allows for any student to make a mistake, athlete or not. It’s the work a student puts in after they’ve adjusted to the high
school workload that counts. Football and men’s basketball players would be most affected by a change in academic standards because they usually post the lowest scores, according to the NCAA. Encouraging the players of the two most popular sports in college is a good message to send: There are no exceptions. There are high standards. Education is important. Future collegiate athletes can take this extra year to slack off, but they need to take school more seriously if they plan on playing two of the most popular sports in college recreation. It may be a little difficult at first, but when high school athletes adjust to the new minimum, they’ll not only be ballers on the court, they’ll be better students in the classroom. — Serena Valdez is a journalism junior.

Police Beat By Elliot P. Hopper Daily Wildcat
A student was walking north on Park Avenue when he noticed a white Nissan Versa following him at 4:48 p.m. on Wednesday. As he walked across Speedway Boulevard, the car continued to follow him and as he reached the sidewalk, the car pulled over and the male driver asked him, “Do you need a ride somewhere?” The student said no, and as he walked into 7-Eleven, he noticed the car park in the store’s parking lot. When the student walked out of the store, the driver asked him, “Can you give me the directions to Stone (Avenue)?” The student did not answer and wrote down his license plate number. He called the University of Arizona Police Department to report the driver, who he described as a man in his late 50s. He told officers that although he did not look like a student, his license plate had Arizona Wildcats stickers on it. Officers successfully identified the driver through his license plate number and found that a different student had reported him last fall. Officers contacted the student, who told them that every Friday, the man would call him and ask to take him to dinner. The student said he once allowed the man to do so, and at dinner, the man said he was on scholarship from the UA and could pay for the meal. The student said once they started eating, the man became flirtatious and would playfully slap him on the arm during conversation. The man asked the student how big his feet were because he thought he had big feet. The student then said he got uncomfortable and left, and never heard from the man again. Both students told officers they did not want the man to contact them again. Officers unsuccessfully called his home and cellphone. They also called his place of employment and found out he no longer worked there. There is no more information at this time.
Just a few beers
Officers on patrol noticed two students stumbling north on the sidewalk on Tyndall Avenue at 1:40 a.m. on April 20. Officers pulled over and asked the man and woman if they were OK, and they said they were “doing fine” and were just “very sleepy.” Officers smelled alcohol coming from their breath and noticed they had red, watery eyes. When officers asked how old they were and what they had been doing earlier that night, they said they were 19 years old and had just come from a party at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house. They told officers when they approached the house, fraternity members told them to “help themselves to beer” and that no one was going to check for their identification. Both students said they had about three cups of beer at the party. The pair was referred to the Dean of Students Office for Code of Conduct violations.

more than the Bottle Non-chemical addictions creep under the radar to affect college students, but mystery still remains over their impact By Jazmine Woodberry Daily Wildcat
ddiction is more than a bottle of booze or a line of a narcotic. Officials at the UA’s Campus Health Service say that although alcohol tends to be what most students come in for, consultations for students with other addictions do come up — a representation of a campus trend that reflects a national issue.
Of the 16 million Americans suffering from compulsive sexual behavior, 60 percent suffered abuse during childhood, according to the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health. Around 2 million Americans are compulsive gamblers, while another 4 to 8 million have gambling problems that are less severe, according to the National Council on Problem Gambling. In addition, at least 1 in 20 Americans is a problem shopper, according to a study by Stanford University. Problem shopping, as well as gambling or sex addiction, tend to trigger the pleasure centers in the brain the same way substances do. Counselors at UA’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) see students struggling with the beginnings of addiction every day.
Any kind of addiction is on a continuum, so you’ve got use, abuse and dependence. It’s really not going to matter how old you are, but if you are dependent in your 20s or your 40s, dependence is dependence.

when a person crosses that line into addiction,” Buck said. Addiction dramatically affects the brain, including the limbic system and prefrontal cortex, both of which hold pleasure centers in the brain: • Addiction activates the pleasure centers through neuron signals. Neurons in the reward pathway, connect among other things the limbic system and prefrontal cortex, release neurotransmitters. • Those same neurons send electrical signals across small spaces in the brain called synapses to each other down their axons, a tendril that springs off of a neuron. • Dopamine is released into the synapse, crosses to the next neuron and binds to receptors, providing jolts of pleasure more intense than natural rewards such as eating when hungry or feeling rested after sleeping. The dopamine allows the addictive substance, whether natural or one part of an addiction, to soothe the survival center of the brain. The addictive substance then increases the amount of dopamine, heightening the feeling of pleasure. Every time an addict uses, it carves a deeper pathway for the neurons to follow. As these pathways deepen, within the span of addiction, the body believes everyday functioning is dependent on the addictive substance. “The brain has been programmed to identify survival with that drug or activity,” Buck said.
Will the (social) media stuff be bigger than say sex addiction or gambling or other stuff? I don’t know. Certainly there’s potential. We have to wait and see.

How addiction manifests itself
Once the brain has made the connection between the addictive substance and survival, a person has become dependent. Dependency has a few hallmark symptoms, according to Buck. One is a higher-than-average tolerance for a substance, and it takes more of a substance each time an addict uses it to achieve the same pleasurable result. The second is withdrawal, during which a person has predictable physical symptoms. They can manifest themselves as moodiness, anxiety, sleeplessness or irritability with non-chemical addictions. “And those symptoms can last a

long time, especially if the dependency isn’t treated,” Buck said.
Treatment for college students
No two people have the same path to recovery, no matter what the addiction. It’s not a moral issue or about willpower, and it’s not about hitting rock bottom. It’s about understanding the addiction, any addiction. And this flies in the face of those who think non-chemical addictions aren’t necessarily real or aren’t as addictive as alcohol or illicit drugs. “Because treatment is more than detox, it can include psychological, social interventions, lifestyle interventions such as nutrition and finding healthy replacements for the activity or substance,” Buck said. That is why Buck has her students who want to become drug counselors add a benign habit, like drinking an extra cup of water a day or exercising at a certain time every morning, to help them understand how quickly a habit can become addictive.
Future paths of addiction
“In the recovery process, part of what happens is developing new associations of safety for the brain so that when stress is triggered, the person has developed healthy and safe avenues for the brain to associate with safety,” Buck said. There are special ways to treat addicts, things that also work with college students, according
to Cox-Howard. One treatment method uses motivational interviews, which are created to recognize the differences between readiness levels of people entering treatment. The goal-directed interviewing spurs motivation within the client to change their behavior. These interviews identify the addict’s own weaknesses in order to tackle them. Another is cognitive behavioral treatment, which would treat addiction through either one-on-one or group treatment methods. Some of this is through cognitive remodeling, where Socratic questioning methods help addicts re-evaluate how they perceive their addition. Other parts deal with exposure therapy, where addicts are introduced to a behavior they will have to confront, such as shopping or sex, with physician support to begin to deal with its place in their life. But with more data about how pervasive non-chemical addictions are among youth, Reyes said, will come clarification on the severity of non-chemical addiction. Addiction counselors hope that more understanding of youth non-chemical addiction will show whether a lack of reporting these addictions is equivalent to a lack of occurrence of them among students. “I think Internet addiction, the social media addiction is still developing because the technology changed. Even the (World Wide Web) was only developed in the 1990s,” Reyes said. “So will the (social) media stuff be bigger than, say, sex addiction or gambling or other stuff? I don’t know. Certainly there’s potential. We have to wait and see.”

Oregon’s hot bats too much for softball By Cameron Moon Daily Wildcat
The Arizona softball team lost a prime opportunity this weekend to improve its chances of retaining home field advantage throughout the tournament. The Wildcats lost to Oregon 11-7 on Friday and 12-7 Saturday before finally capturing a 5-4 win on Sunday. “Finally something came through for us,” head coach Mike Candrea said. “It’s one of those weekends where it felt like we were grinding and grinding all weekend with nothing good is happening.” In Friday’s game, Wildcat pitcher Kenzie Fowler was abused by the
Ducks, giving up six hits and eight runs in just four innings before being replaced by first baseman and sometimes-pitcher Jessica Spigner, who gave up seven hits and three more runs. “We were giving up too many bases, whether it’s hit batters or walks,” Candrea said. “We’re trying to eliminate those unforced bases.” Oregon got off to a fast start, hitting two grand slams in the first three innings, while Arizona (32-14, 9-9 Pac12) scored seven runs on 11 hits. Saturday was a defensive nightmare for Arizona. Again, the Wildcats gave up double-digit runs and were unable to keep up with the explosive Ducks offense. The 12 runs given up
by sophomore Shelby Babcock are a season high for Arizona, as is the five errors they committed, including two fielding errors from typical defensive standout Brigette Del Ponte and another by catcher Chelsea Goodacre, who was trying to throw out an attempted base stealer. After getting down 7-1 and running the risk of being run-ruled on their own field, the Wildcat bats finally began to heat up as they scored five of their runs in the second and third innings. The Wildcats had back-toback RBI doubles from seniors Lini Koria and Jessica Spigner, dropping the lead from six runs to two, before Oregon hit another home run, putting the game out of reach for
Arizona, ultimately losing the series. “(On Sunday), Shelby just wasn’t feeling herself,” Candrea said. “She gave us everything she had, but at this level, you have to have everything.” Saturday’s loss marked a threegame conference losing streak — the worst three-game conference stretch for the UA, losing by a combined 15 runs, since the Pacific 10 Conference began softball play in 1988. If the RPI rankings, where Oregon sat eighth prior to the series and directly ahead of the No. 9 Wildcats, weren’t enough to show close the two teams are, Sunday’s matinee series finale should have been. The game started with yet another
Oregon homer, again from sophomore Kailee Cuico, her second of the series. Arizona battled back in an odd way, as its first two runs were scored via walk and a batter being hit by a pitch. After the third inning, in which Babcock gave up another two runs, she was pulled in favor of junior Kenzie Fowler, who blanked the Ducks the rest of the way, despite giving up four hits. “As a pitcher sometimes when you try to hard, you get flat,” Fowler said. “We had nothing to lose. We were rocked pretty hard all week.” Fowler’s pitching, in addition to

Former Arizona cornerback Trevin Wade makes a tackle against ASU at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., on Nov. 19, 2011. Wade was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the seventh round of the NFL Draft on Saturday. He said it felt similar to drawing just one late scholarship offer from the UA in high school.
NFL Draft familiar feeling for former UA cornerback Wade By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Just a few days before 2007 college football national signing day, Trevin Wade had zero scholarship offers. Despite a solid high school career, the two-star recruit out of Stony Point High School in Texas garnered little interest and his college football future was in doubt. With only a couple days left to find a team, a rebuilding Arizona program gave Wade a call. Arizona offered him an eventual scholarship but
wanted him to grayshirt his freshman season. Wade eventually worked to convince Arizona and then-head coach Mike Stoops to redshirt him instead, and the rest is history. The cover corner came out of nowhere his freshman season, picking off four balls. He did himself one better the next season with five interceptions and eventually turned in a solid and surprising Arizona career, which figured to result in him becoming a middle-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. But as was the case in high school, Wade sat and waited. Two days, 244 picks and almost all seven rounds passed, and still no phone call outside of possible free agency destinations. “It’s déjà vu,” Wade said on Saturday. “It’s college all over again. I didn’t get that big call until two or three days before signing day. I’m in the
same position here.” After a waiting process that Wade described as “horrible” at times, the Cleveland Browns finally called with only seven picks remaining in the draft. They asked Wade if he was ready to be a Brown. “Oh yeah, I’m ready,” he answered. Wade, who has never been to Cleveland, said he was so excited to finally hear his name called that he didn’t catch the name of whoever it was in the Browns organization who called him. No matter who it was, Wade is ready to work tirelessly, for the second time in his football career, to prove the 31 teams who passed on him wrong.
Baseball reaches 2,600-win milestone in weekend sweep UA offense explodes for 51 combined runs in nonconference series By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat
The No. 11 Arizona baseball team took the weekend off from conference play to take on East Tennessee State, and while it may have been a bye from the Pac-12, the Wildcats’ bats did anything but rest as Arizona won all three games on the weekend, including a 21-6 victory on Sunday. Arizona (29-13, 12-6 Pac-12) combined for 51 runs and 65 hits in the series, sweeping East Tennessee State (19-24) in its last non-conference series of the season. “I was really pleased with (the offense),” Lopez said. “Pleased that they could keep that intensity and their ability to execute all weekend. “It was obviously our best weekend offensively in a long time.” The Arizona bats came out
swinging from the start Friday and they never stopped, on the way to a season high of runs in the 24-7 victory against the Buccaneers. Everybody just approached the plate well all weekend and stayed selfless to create runs for the team, said sophomore Johnny Field who moved over to centerfield this weekend to replace the injured Joey Rickard. Friday starter Kurt Heyer (8-1) wasn’t as sharp as usual, giving up 12 hits and six earned runs in 7.2 innings of work. But Heyer did enough to secure Arizona’s 2,600th all-time victory, making it just the eighth school to do so. In comparison to the rest of the series, the Wildcats were nothing to write home about at the plate Saturday, but Arizona still came away with the 6-4 victory. Starter Konner Wade (6-1) had the toughest job this weekend as the Buccaneers kept the game close, but Wade and closer Stephen Manthei were able to give the Wildcats the

victory in a game where they never trailed. Wade allowed three earned runs and eight hits in 7.1 innings before Manthei finished it off to pick up his second save of the season. While the pitching was good, what really stood out in the game was a
solo home run that designated hitter Bobby Brown crushed over the right field wall. Home runs have been a rarity at the cavernous Hi Corbett Field, so the long ball garnered the nickname “Downtown Bobby Brown” from Lopez after the game. Brown said he saw the ball well all weekend and it gave him confidence at the plate — which certainly showed in the box score. The redshirt senior went 9-for-12 on the weekend with 9 RBIs and 6 runs scored to go along with two triples and home run. “I just felt great and it worked out for me,” Brown said. The Wildcat offense was back on the prowl Sunday, recording a season-high 27 hits on the day to complete the sweep over East Tennessee State with the 21-6 victory. Every Arizona starter had at least a hit on the afternoon, and only firsttime starter David Lopez finished with less than two hits in the game.
ick Foles was drafted to the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday. Immediately after Foles was announced as the 88th overall pick, I had numerous friends from New Jersey text me the same exact thing — “Tell me about Nick Foles. Good pick?” I’m here to tell you exactly what I told them — there is no better fit in the entire National Football League for Foles than in Philadelphia, and he will thrive under Andy Reid. Let me give you some background. I go to the UA, but I am from Cherry Hill, N.J., in the Delaware Valley, located about five miles southeast of Philadelphia. I’ve been a diehard Eagles fan my entire life. I’ve witnessed four NFC championship game losses and one in the Super Bowl. I live about 15 minutes from where Terrell Owens sat on his front lawn and infamously did bicep curls and sit-ups for reporters, and 30 minutes from Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles play. Eagles fans booed when Donovan McNabb was the team’s No. 2 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, and, myself included, proceeded to boo at every mistake he made in his 10-year career there. As scary as that might sound for a young quarterback, there still is
Arizona tops NAU but falls to ASU By Emi Komiya Daily Wildcat
Arizona track and field had outstanding performances this weekend but fell short against ASU in the Double Dual meet in Tucson. The NAU Lumberjacks came in third place. The No. 8 Arizona women’s team earned second place with 96 points and the No. 13 men’s squad also came in second with 86 points. Junior high jumpers Nick Ross and Edgar Rivera-Morales once again went head to head for first place. Both cleared 2.20 meters and Ross took first place in a jump-off. For the women, junior high jumper Brigetta Barrett continued her streak on the bar, clearing 1.93 meters and remaining at No. 1 in the country and tied for first in the world. “This is the most consistent I’ve been at 6-4 (or better),” Barrett said. “It shows that I’m a lot stronger and

team’s eventual NIT appearance. UA head coach Sean Miller brought Turner in as the crown jewel in one of the nation’s top recruiting classes entering the season, alongside Angelo Chol, Nick Johnson and the since-departed Sidiki Johnson.
Upon Turner’s suspension at the end of the season, Miller said in a statement: “I am disappointed in Josiah for his action. Unfortunately this suspension comes at a time of great excitement and opportunity for our team. However, the standards of our program will not be compromised under any circumstances. Hopefully, Josiah will learn a valuable lesson from this experience.” Turner, a five-star recruit, and Sidiki Johnson, a four-star recruit,
were half of Miller’s four-member recruiting class and both are no longer a part of the Arizona basketball program. Sidiki Johnson transferred to Providence in January. Now, Turner has left the Wildcats scrambling for options to run the point guard position. Jordin Mayes, Nick Johnson and incoming freshman Gabe York appear to be the top options, while the Wildcats are also in contention for Xavier transfer guard Mark Lyons. DAILY WILDCAT FILE PHOTO

In fact, Wade said he wouldn’t have it any other way. ”I’m back at square one like when I was a freshman at Arizona … it’s a great feeling,” Wade said. “I’m going to get out there and prove myself and just go crazy.” Although the Browns haven’t made the playoffs since 2002, head coach Pat Shurmur and president Mike Holmgren have a solid core of talent after drafting running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden with their first two picks. Wade trained with Richardson and Weeden in Phoenix leading up to the NFL Combine and said he considers them good friends. He can see the potential of this Cleveland team and said he’s “happy to be a Brown.” But even though his name was

no better spot for Arizona’s all-time leading passer than in the “city of brotherly love.” Head coach Reid has developed a reputation around the league as a QB guru. As disappointing as McNabb was in high-pressure situations and in his inability to win big games, in his prime McNabb was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. In his coaching career, Reid made Koy Detmer and A.J. Feeley look like quality NFL starting quarterbacks, rejuvenated an aging Jeff Garcia, coached McNabb to six Pro Bowls, developed Kevin Kolb enough to garner a second pick and cornerback
finally called, it still doesn’t make sense to Wade why he fell. Sure, he’ll take the positive from it and play with the same “chip on my shoulder” that he did at Arizona. But the fact that he, Juron Criner, and even Nick Foles to some degree dropped so far baffles him. “If you look at the production we had, I don’t understand it,” Wade said. “If you look at Nick Foles’ highlights they were all to Juron. Nick is competing with the top quarterbacks in the Pac-12. We had the No. 1 pick this year with Luck and probably the No. 1 pick next year with Matt Barkley. I’ve been going against those players every game and against Nick every practice.” Yet, the NFL didn’t see enough value in that and Wade’s 5-foot-11, 192-pound frame. But that didn’t hold Wade back at Arizona, and he’s aiming to replicate that blueprint at the NFL level.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals, and signed a post-jail Michael Vick when nobody wanted him, transforming Vick into a better passer than he ever was in his six years in Atlanta. Of all active coaches, Reid has the fifth-most wins, eighth-best winning percentage and has made the playoffs in nine of his 13 seasons coaching the Eagles. His quarterbacks coach is Doug Pederson, a former NFL quarterback who played behind Brett Favre for four years. On offense, the Eagles bring out two explosive receivers in DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin and a dynamic Pro Bowl running back in LeSean McCoy. All the pieces are in place for Foles to

“I’m just going to try to get into the rotation,” Wade said. “Everything happens for a reason.”
On Foles to the Eagles: “I think it’s really good. Nick’s behind Michael Vick and sometimes Vick gets hurt so Nick will get a shot.” On Criner to the Raiders: “Juron I think he’ll be able to play early. That’s a good fit for him.”

succeed, as long as he gets a few years to sit back and learn, a la Kolb. From a pure football standpoint, all the pieces are in place for Foles to thrive. As for the sometimes-rowdy Philadelphia fan base, it can be a lot to handle for a young quarterback, but Foles will be just fine. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound gunslinger has already experienced his fair share of adversity. From a decommittment to ASU in high school to transferring from Michigan State to the midseason firing of Mike Stoops and getting repeatedly abused behind a young offensive line for the last two years, Foles fought through it all and came out on top as the best quarterback in the UA’s history. “I think you grow as a leader. It’s tough,” Foles said in his Saturday press

a lot more confident as a jumper this year. It also shows that I’m really prepared to jump a lot higher. So as we step into championship season, I know that all the weight training I’ve been doing all year and all the sleep I might have lost, it’ll be worth it in the end.” Junior Georganne Moline picked up a win in the 400-meter hurdles clocking a time of 55.37 seconds. Moline also sits at No. 1 in the country. “I wasn’t too happy with my 400-meter hurdle race,” Moline said. “There were some technical things I should have done a lot better. But, for me not having a perfect race and still getting a decent time, I wasn’t too upset.” For the men, junior Clifton Leake
conference with the Philadelphia media. “When you lose your head coach, part of that is because of you as a player. It’s not because of the coach. We didn’t do our job. I didn’t do my job as a quarterback. I didn’t win the games. That’s on me and I didn’t get that done and I take that personally.” While the prospect of playing in front of a drunk, passionate and raucous crowd of nearly 70,000 fans is daunting, to say the least, Foles has the personality and wherewithal to be OK in that environment. As he admitted on Saturday, Foles will never be a Vick-esque athlete, and he won’t need to be. At Arizona, Foles was known to stay and watch film as late as 3 a.m. after games, and that hardworking and win-at-all-costs attitude is the

The women’s 4-by-400-meter relay quartet of senior Echos Blevins, sophomore Shapri Romero, sophomore Tamara Pridgett, and Moline took fist place for the second time this season with a new best time of 3:13.17. Other first-place finishers include senior runner Stephen Sambu in the 1,500-meter race, Elizabeth Apgar in the women’s 1,500-meter race, Taylor Bush in the hammer throw, junior Alyssa Hasslen in shot put, and sophomore Elvin Kibet in the 3K. “It is never a good day to not have more points than the Sun Devils and that’s just the way that works out,” head coach Fred Harvey said. “But we need to make sure we have more points than them at the Pac-12 and NCAA Championships.”
exact demeanor needed to succeed in Philadelphia. “I think just facing adversity and continuing to grind no matter what — always wanting to get better,” Foles said. “That’s how I approach everything and that’s how I saw my team every day.” Will Foles make mistakes? Sure he will. Even Tom Brady and Peyton Manning make mistakes. But his will to get back up and fight through them and his yearning to learn from his mistakes is why Foles will succeed in the NFL and be welcomed with open arms to Philadelphia. — Zack Rosenblatt is the assistant sports editor.

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships Campus Health is open all summer! Call 520-621-9202 for an appointment with a caring medical provider.
Q How often should I get tested for STDs? A. As a student, it is a good idea to be in touch with all facets of your health. Sexual health is no different. In addition to using safer sex practices (e.g. getting consent, using condoms and birth control), getting screened for sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, on a regular basis is a smart decision. But how often is enough without going overboard? The short answer: it depends on each individual and their behavior. A person who hasn’t had any sexual partners or engaged in risky behavior since their last test can be confident that their status hasn’t changed. Conversely, a person who has had multiple sex partners has a higher risk of acquiring an STD. Other risk factors include improper condom use, needle sharing, or exchange of body fluids between partners who don’t know their status. The Pima County Health Department recommends the following guidelines for testing: If you have multiple partners, aim for a checkup once every 3 months. If you are entering into a long-term monogamous relationship, get tested with your partner at least 3 months after going out. Don’t hesitate to consult a medical

the damage my birth control could cause.”
professional if you notice fluid discharge, itching, burning, sores, bumps, blisters, unusual odors, or any other changes in your body. Keep in mind that many STDs do not show any symptoms. If you are looking for a convenient location to get tested, Campus Health offers confidential and affordable testing for students taking at least 1 credit. After a $20 co-pay, available tests include chlamydia ($31), gonorrhea ($31), herpes ($44), HIV ($23), syphilis ($21). All visits and tests are confidential and can be billed to your Bursar’s account! If you have the CampusCare supplement, the cost of the lab work is covered under the co-pay. Other insurance plans may also cover these costs. For details, call our billing office at 621-6487. No one knows your body better than you. Be aware of any changes to stay happy and healthy.

Senior Sarah Landsman and freshman Hailey Johnson made it to the Pac-12 Women’s Doubles Invitational finals on Sunday for the Arizona women’s tennis team, but lost in a close match to California’s Tayler Davis and Laura Posylkin. Landsman and Johnson came into the tournament ranked No. 1. After three victories, the duo was Arizona’s last hope for coming away with a Pac-12 championship. Just games separated Landsman and Johnson from victory when they fell to the California duo 7-9. In singles play, Landsman was one match shy of making it to the Pac-12 Women’s Singles Invitational finals. She came in ranked No. 5 in the singles tournament. As the semifinals began, Landsman took on USC’s Gabi Desimone. Desimone limited Landsman two wining games in both sets with scores of 6-2, 6-2.
Meanwhile, sophomore Lacey Smyth and senior Natasha Marks came up short in both the Pac-12 Women’s Singles and Doubles Championships. Smyth needed wins this weekend to push her singles rank into the top 30, but she lost in the first round of play to California’s Anett Schutting 6-4, 6-2. Even though Marks made it past the first round, she hit a brick wall in the second round against Cal’s Zsofia Susanyi. Susanyi shut out Marks in the first set and held her to one game in the second set. Marks and Smyth’s last chance to advance in the tournament quickly ended in the first round of doubles play. The Arizona duo known for comeback victories could not outlast its USC opponent, losing by just two games, 7-9. The Wildcats came home without a Pac12 Championship title, but await to see what is in store for the NCAA Championships this weekend. The selection show will take place at 5 p.m. on Tuesday and be shown on NCAA.com.

winning run on a walk-off Hallie Wilson single with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. from page 9 “I was thinking, ‘Please don’t catch it,’” Wilson said. “I’m glad it fell. … We wanted to be a home run by Koria and an RBI double, al- determined.

Baseball from page 9
Starter James Farris (5-2) allowed five earned runs on 10 hits in six innings, but he had plenty of room for error with the offense firing on all cylinders. Because of the uneven number of teams in the conference, the Wildcats were the only team out of 11 to play a team outside
the Pac-12. The break in play allowed for No. 10 Oregon sneak past Arizona and take first place in the conference. “You just want to play good baseball,” Lopez said. “I know that sounds like a really corny, stupid line, but it’s the goal. We tell our guys all the time there is a definition of good baseball. I thought we played very good baseball for three nights in a row even though it wasn’t conference baseball.”

RECYCLING FROM PAGE 1
“You have to make sure that communication is working well, that the right hand knows what the left hand is doing,” said Christopher Kopach, assistant vice president of Facilities Management. Both Ramirez and Kopach said that since 2009, the process for collecting, weighing and reporting how much material the UA recycles has become more defined and more accurate. Throughout the tournament, universities report weekly how many pounds of material they’ve recycled to RecycleMania. In 2009, the UA used the organization’s volume-to-weight conversion factors to estimate how much it recycled, because whoever collected the recycling at the time wasn’t capable of weighing the material, Ramirez said. Using RecycleMania’s conversion factors, 1 cubic yard of loose “campus waste” weighs 90 pounds and 1 cubic yard of compacted “campus waste” weighs 300 pounds. Over the past four years, the UA has gone through several waste haulers, and the University Communications Office wasn’t able to find the waste-hauling contract from 2009 by press time. During RecycleMania 2010, the UA’s contract was with the city of Tucson. The city weighed the trash in pounds. As of last fall, the UA’s Waste Management facility started collecting the trash and ROBERT ALCARAZ / DAILY WILDCAT recycling, and it too weighs the material, en- Clubs like Students for Sustainability are working to increase recycling efforts on campus. The suring that the numbers reported to Recy- organization is starting an initiative to see where recycling bins are most needed. cleMania are actual weights, not estimates.
Any inaccurate measurements from the conversion process would’ve been compounded with yet another 2009 oddity: Around 60,000 extra books discarded by the university’s libraries. The libraries get rid of duplicate or unused material every year, but according to Jim Fromm, leader of the Library Support Services Team, 2009 saw an “intensive effort” to clean out their shelves. He estimated the University Libraries sent an extra 20,000 volumes to the recycling bins that year. Law Library Director Michael Chiorazzi said the Law Library at the James E. Rogers College of Law added another 40,000. Books range from 1 to 6 pounds, Fromm said. That means the University Libraries and the Law Library could have contributed anywhere from 60,000 pounds to 360,000 pounds of recycled material to the 2009 campus total. “I don’t think we accounted for half of (the recycling),” Fromm said. “I’m not a math major, but I can figure it out.” On a side note, there may be less reading material circulating on campus now than there was four years ago. The Daily Wildcat prints fewer and fewer issues each year, according to Arizona Student Media
Director Mark Woodhams. And other publications, like the Tucson Weekly, have cut their circulations as well. Woodhams added that in the past, students were known to commandeer multiple copies of the Daily Wildcat from the newsstands just so they could add them to the recycling bins during the tournament. At one point, Residence Life quit counting the paper in its totals, Woodhams said.
Throwing out the past
Despite extra material from the libraries, potentially inaccurate measurements and a new partnership to sort out, 2009’s more than 50 percent drop still seems impossible to ignore. But RecycleMania didn’t notice, according to Rudy. “We do make our best effort to verify numbers, especially with people who are toward the top,” he said. If RecycleMania finds that a university fabricated numbers, the university will be disqualified from its competitive division and lowered to the “benchmark” division. At this level, schools continue to report to RecycleMania, but can’t compete against others, Rudy said. Regardless of the tournament, the UA has seen little change in its recycling levels.

the stagnant statistics and are making efforts to improve, according to Natalie Lucas, codirector of Students for Sustainability and a junior studying environmental science and philosophy, politics, economics and law. “With RecycleMania, we want to really expand and go for a campuswide push,” Lucas said. To make recycling more convenient, Students for Sustainability is working to identify where recycling bins are needed on campus. The goal is to have a recycling bin next to every trashcan by next year so that people don’t have to go out of their way to recycle, Lucas said. Ramirez said she hopes to use RecycleMania to turn recycling into a habit for students and staff. The idea is that if people get used to doing something for 10 weeks, they will continue doing it in the long term. To publicize the competition, she said, Residence Life and Facilities Management plan to increase advertising through emails, posters and social media. Facilities Management aims to up the ratio of recycling to waste by 10 percent every year, Kopach said. “We’re really trying to ramp it up. We’re getting new signage, we’re working with ASUA, the Sustainability Office, Residence Life, Compost Cats,” Kopach said. “It’s really a collaborative effort.”
Drones have yet to prove their worth MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The drug runners call it “el mosco,” the mosquito, and one recent evening on the southern tip of Texas, a Predator B drone armed with cameras buzzed softly over the beach on South Padre Island and headed inland. “We’re gonna get some bad guys tonight, I’ve got a feeling,” said Scott Peterson, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection supervisory air interdiction agent. Soon the drone’s infrared camera picked up a man hauling bales of marijuana from an inflatable rubber boat into a minivan on the Texas side of the river. Then it spotted a second boat. Agents readied for a major bust. But the April 18 raid was not the success Peterson had envisioned. He wanted the drone to track the smugglers to a stash house, and perhaps to ranking cartel members. Instead, Border Patrol agents rushed to the riverbank, sirens blaring. They seized half a ton of marijuana, a van and a boat. The smugglers escaped and no one was arrested. The mixed results show a glaring problem for Homeland Security officials who have spent six years and more than $250 million building the nation’s largest fleet of domestic surveillance drones. The nine Predators that help police America’s borders have yet to be very useful in stopping contraband or illegal immigrants. The border drones require an hour of maintenance for every hour they fly, cost more to operate than anticipated, and are frequently grounded by bad weather, according to a draft audit of the program last month by the Homeland Security Department’s inspector general. The audit report criticized Homeland Security for buying two drones last year and ordering an additional $20.5-million Predator B system in Cocoa Beach, Fla., this year, saying it already owns more drones than it can use. Each drone costs about $3,000 an hour to fly. To help pay for the drones, Customs and Border Protection has raided budgets of its manned aircraft. One result: flight hours were cut by 10 percent for the P-3 Orion maritime surveillance planes that hunt smuggling ships on the West Coast and in the Caribbean. The amount of illicit drugs seized in Predator raids is “not impressive,” acknowledged Michael Kostelnik, a retired Air Force major general who heads the office that supervises the drones. Last year, the nine border drones helped find 7,600 pounds of marijuana, valued at $19.3 million. The 14 manned P-3 Orions helped intercept 148,000 pounds of cocaine valued at $2.8 billion. Kostelnik dismissed criticism of the border drones as shortsighted. He sketched out scenarios, such as a nuclear plant meltdown or detonation of a dirty bomb, where the drones could help assess damage without endangering a pilot. If a major terrorist attack occurred in Washington or New York City, Kostelnik said, he could put drones overhead in five hours, assuming they could be flown up from Florida or carried on a cargo plane, to help first responders and policymakers. “It is not about the things we are doing today,” Kostelnik said. “It is about the things we might be able to do.”
