The UA Health Network reported approximately $28.5 million in operating loss this fiscal year, largely due to the implementation of a new electronic medical record system. According to reports, the total cost of the Epic electronic record system was an estimated $115 million, including $32 million in unbudgeted costs for the first eight months of the fiscal year. Much of the expenses can be blamed on scheduling cutbacks for physicians during the training period, said Dr. Kwan Lee, director of the University of Arizona Medical Center — South Campus cardiology clinic. Lee said the adjustment period to the Epic system was difficult and expensive since every person in the system had to be trained. “Some degree of initial adjustment and losses were expected,” Lee said. The Epic system also resulted in the layoffs of 23 UA Health Network staffers in the recordkeeping department as it eliminated the need for their jobs. “Whenever you go into a more efficient system, some [jobs] are going to be redundant, but it does create jobs in other arenas,” Lee said. “Whenever you have a technology shift within the system you are going to find that some services will no longer be required and some new services will be created.” To offset implementation costs, federal agencies are providing incentive payments to encourage healthcare providers to adopt the electronic health record systems, Lee said. Lee also said he expects the system will eventually save the network money because of its increased efficiency. The Epic system will bring uniformity to the UA Health Network, which previously had

Chemistry courses get a makeover BY Meghan Fernandez

Arizona Summer Wildcat

The general chemistry courses at the UA have adapted a curriculum change effective this fall. Headed by John Pollard, general chemistry and biochemistry director, and Vicente Talanquer, a chemistry and biochemistry professor, this new curriculum will be based off the chemical thinking course. Pollard said the idea for changing the general chemistry curriculum began six years ago due to frustration he and other professors felt with the traditional curriculum. Pollard said he and his colleagues noticed students had difficulty making connections. The new curriculum for general chemistry is changing from memorization-based to more conceptual-based, Pollard said. Students will be able to understand how a chemist thinks and apply what they have learned to real world situations, according to Pollard. “It’s trying to illustrate this idea of showing how a chemist thinks versus what a chemist knows,” Pollard said. Pollard and his colleagues wrote a National Science Foundation grant, which funded the creation of an entirely new curriculum. After receiving the grant, Pollard said they began writing class notes, writing a book and designing lectures. “It’s a real home-grown project,” he said. The change of curriculum in general chemistry is also supported by data. According to Pollard, students who took the chemical thinking curriculum to fulfill their general chemistry requirement did better in organic chemistry. Pollard also said students who took chemical thinking, regardless of their grade in the course, did better on the American Chemical Society standardized exam. Brandon Wentz, a pre-physiology

Commercial spaceflight bill signed into law by Gov. Brewer BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY

New Kid on the Cell Block

A UA student got off to a bad start on his day and his college career on June 10. At 9 a.m. a UofA Bookstore loss prevention officer observed a man taking a blue UA hat valued at $33.95 off a display and putting it in his backpack. The man then exited the bookstore without paying for the hat. University of Arizona Police Department officers caught up with the shoplifting suspect on the UA Mall a few minutes later. Officers read the man his rights and questioned him. The man told officers he was a UA student who was on campus for New Student Orientation . He and a few of his friends from the UA men’s swimming and diving team had been at the bookstore on a break. When asked, he told officers that he had no intention of paying for the hat. The man was cited and released.

From Bound to a Pole to Homeward Bound UAPD officers observed a UA student sitting on the corner of James E. Rogers Road and Park Avenue petting two dogs that were chained to a sign post on June 10. The student said the dogs, two darkcolored labrador retrievers, did not belong to him. He told the officers that he had been waiting with the animals for an hour, hoping their owner would return and claim them. Officers observed that the dogs, who had no identification tags on their collars, were friendly, obedient and uninjured. The student said he wanted to assume custody of the dogs. After UAPD ran a records check on the student and found that he had no animalrelated criminal offenses, they detached the chains from the sign post and gave the dogs to the student.

Gov. Jan Brewer signed into a law a bill that opens the door for commercial spaceflight in the state of Arizona in a signing ceremony on June 18. The spaceflight activities bill, known in the Arizona House of Representatives as House Bill 2163, allows companies to obtain waivers of liability for passengers on commercial spaceflights, in compliance with federal standards in the area. The bill describes potential risks of spaceflight to passengers and sets the terms and conditions of a waiver. HB 2163 was passed nearly unanimously by both houses of the state legislature. Paragon Space Development Corporation, based in Tucson, plans to begin launching commercial spaceflights from Arizona and needed this legislation passed to bring its operations to the state. “This legislation is critical to this mission and has great potential to spur economic growth and attract visitors to our great state for many years to come,” Brewer said. Brewer thanked Reps. Eddie Farnsworth (R-District 22) and Ethan Orr (R-District 9) for their efforts in getting the bill through the legislature. Brewer said HB 2163 eliminates unnecessary restrictions and is an example of Arizona being a business-friendly state. “Too often we see governmental bureaucracy standing in the way of creative business concepts or making it difficult for pioneering enterprises,” Brewer said. The signing ceremony took place inside Paragon’s offices in Tucson. Paragon created World View Enterprises with the purpose of sending customers in a capsule to the edge of space, according to Jane Poynter, president and chairwoman of Paragon. World View plans to launch commercial spacecraft from a launch site in Page, Ariz. starting in 2016. A seat one of these flights will cost about $75,000 and each capsule can

hold up to eight people, Poynter said. Poynter was one of eight people who lived in the Biosphere 2 for two years in the early 1990s and co-founded Paragon while she was still inside the Biosphere. “We’re really thrilled that the state is joining an elite group of states who are welcoming commercial spaceflight,” Poynter said. Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, California, Virginia and Florida have passed similar legislation. HB 2163 is modeled after the legislation that was passed in New Mexico and Texas, Orr said. Orr, who sponsored the bill, said technological innovation often runs into problems with increasing liability, and insurance is difficult or, in the case of commercial spaceflight, impossible to obtain. Orr said he met with Farnsworth and other state legislators to begin crafting a law that would allow contracts on commercial

spaceflight to have validity and this then allows Paragon, and any other commercial spaceflight companies that could come to Arizona, to get the liability insurance needed. “Not only will we able to keep this company [Paragon] here, and keep these jobs here, but this company is currently expanding,” Orr said. “They’re bringing in new industry.” Michael Varney, president and CEO of the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, praised the state legislature for helping Arizona business by passing HB 2163. “It’s very reassuring to know that the laws in the state of Arizona can move equally quickly to join hand in hand with the speed of technology,” Varney said. — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney

Cats play summer baseball

Can US soccer go all the way?


Arizona Summer Wildcat

At the collegiate level, baseball is generally played 11 out of 12 months. Baseball players get the month of May off, but by June, summer ball has begun. Before you know it, fall ball is here and it’s the start of another spring season. Wildcat sophomore outfielders Zach Gibbons and Scott Kingery trained in Tucson last summer and saw their hard work pay off with breakout seasons. Kingery improved his batting average by nearly 100 points from his freshman year when he batted .261. This season, he led the team with a .354 average and was subsequently named to the Pac-12 All-Conference team. This year, the two are competing on the same summer team, the Brewster Whitecaps of the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League. In addition to Kingery and Gibbons, Arizona sophomore pitchers Nathan Bannister and Cody Moffett, freshman infielder Willie Calhoun, sophomore infielder Kevin Newman and freshman utility player Bobby Dalbec have also signed with teams in the Cape Cod League for the summer. Bannister, Moffett and Dalbec are playing with the Orleans Firebirds, Calhoun is with the Wareham Gatemen and Newman is with the Falmouth Commodores. Last summer, Bannister and Moffett led their team, the Goldpanners, to regular season and tournament championships in the less-rigorous Alaska Baseball League. The two combined to post an 8-0 record and recorded ERAs of 2.42 and 0.63 respectively. Bannister, who compiled a 6-0 record with 36 strikeouts in 52 innings in the ABL, has made a flawless transition to the level of play present in Cape Cod. Going into Sunday’s games, the hardthrowing right-hand pitcher had posted a 2-0 record, racked up four strikeouts compared to one walk and limited opposing batters to a .148

batting average over eight innings pitched. He has proven to be one of the Firebirds’ most effective arms and is in possession of the second lowest WHIP on the team (0.63). “Nathan’s been doing really well, he was up to 93 mph last game,” Dalbec said. “He’s been hitting 89-92 mph pretty consistently and also seems to have a pretty good handle on his offspeed pitches.” Bannister has attributed his recent success to switching from a submarine motion to a more over-the-top delivery. He said that he’s been focusing on pounding the low zone and inducing more ground balls rather than worrying about accumulating strikeouts. This summer, Dalbec also earned the chance to compete alongside seven of the

he question that’s on everyone’s minds: How far can the United States national team advance in the 2014 FIFA World Cup? Apart from one fantastic Cristiano Ronaldo cross and a last minute header from Portugal, the World Cup has been everything head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his U.S. squad could’ve hoped for. The team is 1-0-1 and tied for first with four points in Group G aka the group of death. As the final group play match approaches, Klinsmann has the team in a position to control their own destiny. A win or draw versus Germany sees the U.S. advance, while a loss would mean the U.S. needs help to move on. Advancing to the round of 16 would be a huge success but would also considerably test the U.S. Matchups become a huge part of advancing. Group G is matched up with Group H for the round of 16 as the first team in G matches up with the second team in H and the first team in H matches up with the second team in G. The likely top team in Group H is Belgium and the likely second team is Algeria. In short, the U.S. will get a favorable round of 16 matchup regardless if they get first or second in their group. Barring an unforeseen injury or miraculous play, beating one of those two teams should be fairly straightforward for the U.S. It’s the quarterfinals round that

Kingery to make transition BY EVAN ROSENFELD

Arizona Summer Wildcat


SOPHOMORE OUTFIELDER Scott Kingery runs to home plate during a 10-5 win against UC Santa Barabra on March 8. Kingery finished the season with a teamleading .354 batting average.

After two years of waiting, Arizona sophomore outfielder Scott Kingery will finally be given the option to transition from being an outfielder and return to his natural territory in the infield. When Kingery entered Arizona’s program as a middleinfielder out of high school the Wildcats had just won the National Championship and the coaching staff was trying to rebuild after losing three outfielders to the 2012 MLB Draft. Kingery said he was first placed in the outfield during one of the program’s intrasquad games his freshman year. “I made some really nice plays and they just kept putting me out there; it felt natural to me,” Kingery said. “The coaches liked my athleticism and it gave me a chance to show off my

Summer camps continue to run BY DANIELA VIZCARRA

Arizona Summer Wildcat

This past week was the final installment of the sixth annual Sean Miller Basketball Camp hosted by the UA basketball coaching staff. Though named after him, this was the first year that Miller was not in attendance for the basketball camp. He was named an assistant basketball coach for the 2014 USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team and has been with the team in Colorado for the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship for Men. As a result of Miller’s absence, associate head coach Joe Pasternack took the lead in running the two week camp. “The most rewarding part of the camp every year is watching the kids grow and come back and learn so much while having fun,” Pasternack said. This summer’s basketball camp was a year of firsts for the coaching staff

and kids, but it was also the first year that the basketball camp was not held in McKale Center. It was held instead in the Richard Jefferson Gymnasium. McKale Center is currently undergoing $80 million in renovations in preparation for the upcoming basketball season this fall. Ryan Reynolds, director of basketball operations, said there were some issues presented with McKale Center unavailable for use. “It has been hectic using [Richard Jefferson] gym because these facilities are not built to hold so many people like McKale is, and we had to limit the number of kids for the program.” Reynolds said. The Richard Jefferson Gym will continue to host summer camps such as the David Rubio Volleyball Camp and the Niya Butts Basketball Academy. Usually, all three camps are held every summer in McKale Center and they share the facilities. Like the Sean Miller Camp, the Butts Basketball Academy and Rubio

gets tricky. Depending on their seeding and barring an upset, the quarterfinals could see the U.S. matched up against France or Argentina. France isn’t as talented as Argentina, and luckily for the U.S., is missing its top player in Franck Ribery. However, the U.S. has struggled to contain talented strikers and France certainly has one in Karim Benzema. The Real Madrid star can put on a show if he’s in form and would give the back four of U.S. fits. Luckily for Klinsmann, his team has already faced a fantastic goal scorer in Ronaldo and could use similar defensive tactics against Benzema. On the other hand, Argentina is a much tougher, yet somewhat unbalanced, opponent and one of the favorites to win the World Cup. Offensively, Argentina is fantastic. Lionel Messi leads the way with Sergio Agüero and Ángel Di María lending

their talents. The U.S. back four of DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, Geoff Cameron and Fabian Johnson have not yet, and likely will not again, face an attack as talented as what Argentina can bring forward. The way I see it, the U.S. will lose if matched up with Argentina in the quarterfinals and has a better chance beating France. With the injury to Jozy Altidore likely holding out the forward until the quarterfinals, the U.S. will have trouble scoring a high number of goals. That puts a premium on the aforementioned back four of the U.S. defense. Will the stellar defense against Ghana show up? Or will the shaky and often confused defense against Portugal show up? The upcoming game against Germany should provide plenty of answers as to what kind of team the U.S. is. For me, it’s simple really: the U.S. will go as far as its defense takes it. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

Both Klara, adorned with a mohawk, and Bobo, bespectacled with short spiked hair, look very much like young It’s 1982 in Stockholm and punk is dead. Well, boys. Indeed, for the first opening moments of almost dead. Two boyish preteen girls, Bobo the film, I thought that Bobo was a boy. They (Mira Barkhammar) and Klara (Mira Grosin), don’t fall under society’s standard definition of start a punk band in the rehearsal space of their beauty and attraction; the boys at school and the after-school youth center. A coming-of-age story youth center crassly let them know as much. The unlike any other, “We Are the Best!” (“Vi är bäst!” only friends they have are each other and that in its native Swedish) is a fun, endearing film, seems to be enough for them. Bobo and Klara come to the realization thanks in large part to the talented performances of its three young leads. that they have no idea what they are doing by As the film shows through glimpses into haphazardly beating on the drums, screaming their home lives, it’s not hard into the microphone and to imagine why the girls are in strumming the bass — one of them even asks, in one of the the mood for some rebellion. Just don't call Bobo’s mother is a bit of a party movie’s more humorous lines, them a girl animal and can’t seem to keep if drums have chords.

which seem so decidedly set in stone even at their young age, start to shift. Bobo sees herself in Klara’s shadow and wants to assert herself. Previously fashioning herself an atheist, Bobo begins to see herself as agnostic. Hedvig lets her new friends give her a homemade haircut,





her flowing blonde hair becoming an amateur pixie cut. Even the unbending Klara wears a touch of eyeliner to impress Elis (Jonathan Salomonsson), a young boy who’s also in a punk band. The movie’s best scenes are the tender moments when we are reminded that, despite all of their ideals and problems, Bobo, Klara and Hedvig are still naïve, innocent children. Eventually, desires begin to conflict — the conflict, of course, deals with boy problems — and the movie reaches its dark night of the soul. Though it’s inevitable in a film’s structure for the protagonists to not hit their lowest point, this part of the film feels a little canned. This is probably because, up until this point, the film is filled to the brim with the energy and spontaneity of its leading ladies. It needs to be noted that Barkhammar, Grosin and LeMoyne each give fine performances. It would be easy to say that Grosin runs away with the show as the loud Klara, but Barkhammar and LeMoyne do equally well with the more subdued roles. They form a dysfunctional trio that works. Just don’t call them a girl band, as one of the youth counselors made the mistake of doing: they’re a punk band. "We Are the Best!" is currently playing at The Loft Cinema.

“Rio.” His genre is Tropicalia and reggae, and he has been known to blend in traditional Brazilian percussion, making him the perfect candidate to create the instrument for the Brazilian World Cup. Brazil’s Ministry of Sport thought they had made a safe choice with the caxirola for the 2014 World Cup. It isn’t too loud, and it appeared to be a fun, recyclable moneymaker. It’s sort of like a handheld rainstick with finger holes so that the user can buy a pair and clap them together. The noise of the caxirola is much more appealing than that of the vuvuzela, although that isn’t a huge feat. But when fans began hurling them towards referees, the long list of items banned from the World Cup by Brazil’s Ministry of Justice became longer: outside food and drinks, fireworks, megaphones, large flags and banners, vuvuzelas and now caxirolas. Why does the World Cup have such bad luck making musical instruments readily available for its fans? Maybe it is because fans of arguably the biggest game in the world tend to get a little hot and heated, leading to misuse of the instruments. The caxirola may not be a big part of the atmosphere in the stadium, but The Irish Times suspects that it is not the last you will hear of the handheld rainstick. “They are sure to be heard throughout Fan


THE VUVUZELA is a plastic horn that produces a loud monotone sound. The noisemaker has become a common form of fan expression during the World Cup.

Fests and popular gatherings as the World Cup kicks off,” The Irish Times said. While the hype of the vuvuzela is obviously larger than that of its successor, one thing can be certain: the 2014 World Cup will not be silent. — Christianna Silva @DailyWildcat

Night Wings at Pima takes flight BY TODD BICKEL

Arizona Summer Wildcat

Aviation will soar at an all time high this Saturday at the Pima Air & Space Museum. The museum will be hosting its annual Night Wings event, a family-friendly gathering that allows attendees to tour the facility and engage in a variety of educational activities. Night Wings is an event produced by the Pima Air & Space Museum to promote scientific interest among children and families. Engaging activities in previous years have included coloring contests, flight simulations, puzzles and games. This year’s headlining activities for June’s event will be a Radio Disney “Rockin’ Road Crew” dance party and a “Planes” animated film scavenger hunt. Saturday’s event will also feature NASA’s Exploration Design Challenge, which gives children an opportunity to send their name into space as a virtual crew member on the famous Orion EFT1. The majority of educational activities will occur inside the hangars while the “boneyard,” the outside grounds that consists of over 150 aircraft, will be available for viewing until dark. “It’s an opportunity for local families to come out in the evening and enjoy themselves, and expose everyone to a little bit of science in a fun way,” said Mina Stafford, the Pima Air &

Space Museum curator of education. “Some of them [the activities] are very airplanebased such as paper airplanes, gliders and kite activities. Some are a little space related — we have impact craters and some astronaut food tasting, as well as air rockets and a variety of all kinds of things.” Night Wings is a great way to spend an evening out with the family, and an opportunity to see the museum in a different light. Despite Night Wings’ attraction to children, the event will also hold a strong interest to adults. The Pima Air & Space Museum maintains one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of aircraft and is a historic and artistic record of flight. The collection will inspire and stretch your imagination of what is possible. Night Wings will occur every fourth Saturday this summer (June 28, July 26 and August 23). The event will take place from 5-9 p.m., and last admission is at 8 p.m. The museum is expecting over 1,000 attendees this Saturday, so be sure to get there early. Saturday’s admission will be $10 for everyone ages 12 and up, and children younger than that will be admitted for free. COURTESY OF MARY E. EMICH
