OUT OF THE ORDINARY New findings provide answers for epilepsy MARK ARMAO Arizona Summer Wildcat

JORDIN O’CONNOR/ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT

THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA MUSEUM OF ART HAS A SHOW running from May 31 to Sept. 8 called “No Ordinary Place.” Among the works is this mixed media piece by Kevin Cyr titled “Little Tag Along” done in 2011.

Michael Hammer, geneticist and researcher at the UA, is one of a few in his field who can lay claim to a groundbreaking medical discovery, but his personal stake in the matter is much deeper. Hammer’s daughter, Shay, was epileptic and began having seizures at an early age and had limited coordination and learning skills. She died from complications from the disease in March 2011. After she died, Hammer, along with a team of UA researchers, were able to find the genetic cause of her affliction. Those findings led the team to conduct a second study, in which they used DNA sequencing technology to look for the causes of severe epilepsies in children from 10 different families. That study, which was recently published in the journal “Epilepsia,” found genetic mutations that are known to or suspected of having caused epilepsies in seven of the 10 children studied. Although Hammer, who is a research scientist in UA’s Arizona Research Laboratories Division of Biotechnology and a member of the UA BIO5 Institute, was initially hesitant to speak publicly about his daughter’s story, he said he is now more open about it because he knows it helps families

who are in a similar situation. “It’s important for me to acknowledge that none of this would have happened without her,” he said. In 2010, after years of inconclusive tests, Hammer said he made it his mission to find the cause of his daughter’s epilepsy. He sent samples of his family’s DNA to a lab in California to have them sequenced. The data produced were then analyzed by Hammer and his team at UA. Hammer said many of his colleagues tried to talk him out of it, citing the low probability of success, but he persisted. “I said, ‘Well, even if there’s a 1 percent chance of finding something, I’m going to try it,’” Hammer said. Despite the odds, Hammer’s team identified a mutation in a gene not previously associated with epilepsy, which, upon further research was shown to have effects relevant to epilepsy. “That was the first ever case of finding a gene involved in any neurological disorder using these new whole-genome techniques,” said Krishna Veeramah, a postdoctoral researcher in Hammer’s group and the first author of the study. “I thought, ‘If we can do it for her, we can do it for other kids,’” Hammer said.

Approval needed for marijuana research on campus STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Summer Wildcat

Despite a recent amendment in Arizona law, a UA researcher must continue to wait for federal approval before conducting medical marijuana research. Dr. Sue Sisley, assistant director of interprofessional education and assistant professor of internal medicine and psychiatry, was approved by the Food and

Drug Administration two years ago to study the effect of cannabis on veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. However, the FDA’s approval is one of many regulations Sisley will need to get through in order to move forward with the study. Although Arizona voters approved the use of medical marijuana in 2010, an Arizona law was passed in 2012 that prohibited the possession and use of medical marijuana on

college campuses. After realizing the law didn’t make exceptions for marijuana research, UA administration urged the state to adopt a statute allowing such research on college campuses. Last month, Senate Bill 1443 was signed as an exception to the law, allowing medical marijuana research to be conducted on college campuses. The research must also be approved by federal administrations

National Institute on Drug Abuse and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as well as the university’s Institutional Review Board. Sisley is still waiting on approval from NIDA and the DEA before she can begin her study. The drug must be purchased from NIDA after the study is approved based on

Eller to offer new online program, accessibility for future students Jalyn Wheatley Arizona Summer Wildcat

In order to make classes more accessible for potential students, the UA Eller College of Management will soon offer a Master of Business Administration program online. The idea for the online program came from a need to expand and offer the same level of excellence to students who do not have time to attend regular classes, said Joe Valacich, a professor of Management Information Systems for the Eller College and a member of the launch team. “Often we’re limited in terms of the size of our program by the physical facilities,” Valacich said. “One of the things that are attractive to online programs is that they can potentially grow quite large … this efficiency creates resources and those resources can be used to support students, facilities and the other things that we use with our excess revenue.” Because online programs are geared toward people who may be too busy or too far from the classroom, they do not compete with traditional programs, said Len Jessup, dean of the Eller College. The program will also utilize a carousel system, allowing students the opportunity to enter the program six times throughout the year. This way, they do not have to wait until the following fall to enroll in classes and can finish the program in 14 months, Jessup added. “The carousel system makes the program much more accessible. It’s designed for a person who’s working full time and is either job-bound or place-bound and they need that flexibility of when to start,” Jessup said. Boris Shegolev, a UA alumnus, works as an exam developer at the American Board of Radiology and said an MBA could help him achieve his career goals. Taking

classes online would save him time by eliminating his daily three-hour bus commute. “I’m interested in Eller online, as opposed to traditional or evening classes for the additional flexibility with how I can manage my time between commuting three hours each day, working full-time and seeing my family,” Shegolev said. As more colleges create academic online programs, business schools are becoming globally competitive. “We’ve had to break free from the notion of thinking about where a student sits,” Jessup said. “It doesn’t really matter whether a student is sitting in a classroom in Tucson, Scottsdale or in their homes online.” Eller professors working on the launch are also

looking to expand the brand so the college will be available to anyone around the world. The new online program could serve as a potential revenue stream as well as educate students across the globe, according to Valacich. The first rotation of the enrollment system will begin in September. “This is a really exciting time for Eller,” Jessup said. “We aim to be one of a handful of the very best global, comprehensive, entrepreneurial, multimodal, selfsustaining business schools in the world. This is a critical element in us being able to compete in that space.”

medical marijuana and what kinds of symptoms it can cure, Sisley said. A college from page 1 campus is one of the safest and most secure environments to conduct such research while abiding by federal law and maintaining legitimate studies, she added. “To put up barricades for research, like saying that it can’t be done at the university is really unhelpful to the progress of science,” Sisley said. “If you can’t do a marijuana study on campus, there really isn’t anywhere else for you to go … even though the U of A took the lead in trying to move the bill forward, the truth is that this is going to benefit all the universities.” Joseph Hatcher, a 32-year-old combat veteran, was 24 years old when he was deployed to Iraq. In 2006, the Department of Veterans Affairs diagnosed Hatcher with PTSD. Hatcher was prescribed about six medications including anti-depressants, muscle relaxants and mood stabilizers to treat his PTSD, lower back pain and insomnia. After seeing negative results from the medication, he decided to try marijuana instead. “I spent a lot of years doing what the VA told me to and destroying my body and losing weight and I lost my family,” photo courtesy of Hello Health Inc Hatcher said. “When I finally stabilized, Dr. Sue Sisley, was approved to study the effects of cannibis on veterans who suffer from PTSD two years ago. it was cannabis that allowed me to focus and function without pain.” Sisley is still waiting for approval from NIDA and the DEA.

New technology converts web text to sound Mark Armao Arizona Summer Wildcat

For people with certain disabilities, surfing the web can be difficult. This is a problem that the Tucson based company, AudioEye Communications seeks to solve. Along with the help of several graduate students from the UA’s Department of Management Information Systems, AudioEye has developed technology that converts the text on a webpage into audio. MIS showcases this technology by using it on its homepage. “We’re making a mirror image of the MIS website in audio,” said Nathaniel Bradley, CEO and co-founder of AudioEye. “So, whatever they write in text, we publish in audio.” AudioEye also provides captioning for video files. “Those types of services are enabling to disabled users,” Bradley said. “They’re also enabling to the general populace of the campus that is now utilizing mobile voice technology to use the website.” The technology provides a way for users to navigate a site via sound. When a page is opened, the user hears a tone that signifies the AudioEye service is available. By pressing the spacebar, the AudioEye “playlist” is opened and users navigate around the site by using the arrow keys. The menus are read either by a computer-generated voice or a voice-over actor. A department of the Eller College of Management, MIS’ purpose is “to use technology to improve business processes and efficiency,” said Anji Siegel, director of special programs for MIS. Every spring, a team of three to five graduate students collaborate with a different company to solve a business problem. At the end of the semester, the team presents its solution to the company. Over the past four years, multiple teams have been paired with AudioEye to test and review its technology. “Our relationship with the MIS department allows us to showcase and share the current iterations of the software, and allows the students to review it and provide their input,” Bradley said. “They have been extremely

helpful.” Sanjay Reddy, a graduate student from MIS who took part in the project, said it was a unique and challenging experience. “We tried to put ourselves in their shoes and ask, ‘How would they navigate the systems?’” Reddy said. The technology makes Internet content accessible to people with impairments such as vision loss, dyslexia or those with a loss of motor function that make it difficult or impossible to manipulate a mouse. “Our platform allows users to gain access to any content over the Internet without purchasing additional equipment or downloads,” said Paul Lyons, vice president of development at AudioEye. The services provided are in line with the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, which seeks to “increase the access of persons with disabilities to modern communications,” according to the act. Although the platform was designed to address the needs of people with disabilities, the technology is useful to everyone in that

it offers a unique way to interact with online content, said Lyons. “We’re expanding the capabilities of the software in several different ways,” said Sean Bradley, chief technical officer for AudioEye, adding that they are looking at ways to make the technology more intuitive, as well as incorporating voice and gestural navigation in which “the user can use different types of motion to navigate a browser.” “We’re really excited about our partnership with the University of Arizona and the MIS department, and the continuation of that,” said Sean Bradley. Nathaniel Bradley said he hopes the technology will eventually be adopted by all UA colleges, as well as higher-learning institutions nationwide. “Making college campuses talk is a critical on-ramp for disabled students that deserve full access to college websites,” he said. Recently, AudioEye received recognition at the 2013 Edison Universe Innovation Awards, including a Gold Edison Award in the category of “lifestyle and social impact” and the subcategory of “quality of life.”

A man and woman were arrested on charges of driving under the influence on Thursday at 2:34 a.m., after the driver hit a traffic sign and drove away. The driver was initially spotted by a UA staff member, who reported seeing a truck lose control after exiting a parking garage, and hitting a traffic sign. The driver then re-parked the truck, and entered the passenger side of a suburban. Two officers pulled over the suburban, where they informed a man and a woman, who was the driver, that the man was reported to have committed a hit and run. The man replied, “I’m going to be honest, sir, that was me.” The officers noted that there was a strong smell of alcohol and both individuals were asked to step out of the vehicle. The man was described as having bloodshot eyes and a flushed complexion. According to the police report, the woman swayed as she stood. The man admitted to drinking eight “Bud Light Strawberritas” at a friend’s house before attempting to drive. Both individuals were cited and released.

Man demands to see UA president A man caused disruption in the Administration building on Thursday morning, after demanding to speak with the president of the UA. An officer approached the individual, who had reportedly been screaming at an office clerk at 8 a.m. The man said he wanted to speak with the university’s president regarding what he believed to be harassment. He said he has worked at the UA for 25 years and said he believed he had been harassed by his supervisor. The officer asked the man to step outside of the building, and the man cooperated. The man said he was worried about losing his job after being switched from his original area of work and that his supervisor was “out to get [him].” The officer later spoke with employees in the Administration building, who informed the officer that the man had visited the building twice. The situation is being treated as an administrative issue and further police involement was not needed.

Chris Real Arizona Summer Wildcat

Starting in the fall, the UA Poetry Center will have a new executive director for the first time in 11 years. Tyler Meier, appointed last month, said he has plans to continue the growth of the Poetry Center when he begins his position on Aug. 5. “He is a very genuine, very friendly and knowledgeable person with a great background in literary and arts,” said Mary Wildner-Bassett, dean of the UA College of Humanities. Wildner-Bassett said she believes Meier is well-qualified to continue the work of the center’s previous executive director, Gail Browne. During her time, Browne turned the Poetry Center into one of the top poetry organizations in the nation and put the center on the international stage, according to Wildner-Bassett. “She built the Poetry Center into a completely new place, literally, with a new building that she was the leading fundraiser, director and administrator for that big project,” Wildner-Bassett said. “Since then, they have also grown programs and made a much bigger impact. I’d say they’re well known, the top three organizations … in the whole country and internationally known.” Meier praised Browne’s work with the Poetry Center and said he looks forward to finding ways to build on the national profile she started.

Meier said he also plans to utilize the city of Tucson’s interest in literature, as well as start new writing programs within the Poetry Center. “Tucson is a city that cares about writing and I’m looking forward to being a part of the Tucson literary community,” Meier said. Before arriving in Tucson, Meier served as the managing editor for “The Kenyon Review.” His interest in poetry came after taking a creative writing course called “Contemporary American Poetry” during his time as an undergraduate at Kenyon College. “It was an eye-opener to contemporary poetry and sparked an interest in reading and poetry which turned into a lifelong pursuit,” Meier said. Wendy Burk, a librarian for the Poetry Center, said Meier was a great listener, who showed obvious enthusiasm for the Poetry Center and its programs, the UA and for Tucson. “I think he’s going to be a great fit,” Burk said. “He seems really and deeply enthusiastic about Tucson, about the Poetry Center and about the work we’ll all do together as a team. And we the staff echo that enthusiasm.” Meier said he is excited to work with staff, donors and volunteers and to think broadly about moving forward. “This is an extraordinary opportunity,” Meier said, “because of the pieces that are in place, the staff and a thriving community.”

Rec Center implements summer membership fee STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Summer Wildcat

For the first time this year, the Student Recreation Center has implemented a health and recreation fee into summer tuition, leaving students not enrolled in classes to pay for membership. The fee is included in fall and spring tuition, and students who were enrolled in the following fall semester were able to use the Rec Center during the summer. Now, students not taking summer classes are required to pay the fee through a summer membership, said John Lloyd, associate director of the Rec Center. “I think it’s a change for students to understand,” Lloyd said. “Once we explain the reason why, I think most students understand the need for the membership fee.” The fees mirror those paid by students in summer classes and total $55 all summer, $11 for pre-session and $22 for each summer session, Lloyd said. Just two weeks into the summer, more than 1,000 summer memberships had been sold, he added. Some students said they expected to pay an additional fee to use the facilities this summer, though they disagreed with the cost. “It’s better than a gym but I think it could be lower considering what we pay for tuition,” said Andrea Lotz, a creative writing senior.

called whole-exome sequencing. Instead of looking at all 3 million base pairs, whole-exome sequencing looks only at the 2 percent of DNA that actually codes for proteins — the genes, Veeramah said. Since the affected children didn’t have family histories of the illness, the team hypothesized that the epilepsies were caused by a “de novo” mutation, which is a genetic mutation that is present in the child’s DNA but not in the parents. In seven out of the 10 children, mutations were found that had already been or, through subsequent research, were shown to be associated with epilepsy. According to Veeramah, the 70 percent positive rate was higher than anticipated. The findings could lead to better diagnostic tests as well as new treatment options for the children, said Dr. Linda Restifo, a professor of neurology and co-author of the study. “If epilepsy is manageable,” Restifo said, “meaning that the child takes a medication long-term, but grows up to be a functional adult … we’re now light-years ahead of where we are for many of these kids.” The results also offer answers for the families of those affected by such disorders, who likely feel lost after years of testing without a medical diagnosis, Hammer said. “As a parent, I know how much it means,” he said. “Just knowing is a huge relief.”

The independent review by Ice Miller came after an internal investigation by the conference that resulted in the resignation of Pac-12 head of officials Ed Rush. His departure came from his comment that he would give $5,000 or a trip to Cancun to any official that would call a technical foul on head coach Sean Miller during the Pac-12 tournament. The Ice Miller report confirmed the Pac-12’s findings that Rush’s comments were made in jest. The report said the bounty statements “were neither offered nor taken literally” but they did “affect the officiating of bench decorum” during the ArizonaUCLA semifinal in the Pac-12

tournament. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a teleconference call Monday that more specifics are still being worked out now that the full details of the Ice Miller report have been released. He added that the conference will announce details on the “restructuring of our men’s basketball officiating program” in the near future. However, further disciplinary actions will not be made. Instead, the Pac-12 will simply review some of the “lessons learned from this process,” Scott said. “The relationship of our schools and our coaches is of great importance,” he said. “By having an independent reviewer come in and give their objective analysis of the situation, it was my hope and expectation that [the findings will] turn the chapter and put the issues that happened in Las Vegas behind us and allow us to start fresh.” Pac-12 CEO Group chairman Edward Ray, who is also Oregon State University’s president, said his group, which requested the independent

review, accepted the Ice Miller report and determined that the independent review “brings closure to the matter.” UA President Ann Weaver Hart, a member of the Pac12 CEO Group, echoed Ray’s statements in a press release. “I am pleased the report by the Ice Miller Collegiate Sports Practice will result in positive change to the Pac12’s oversight of its officiating program,” Hart said. “The Conference’s commitment to maintain integrity and improve the quality of officiating was important to the executive committee.” While Rush’s comments came beforehand, the controversy surfaced in the Pac-12 tournament semifinal between Arizona and UCLA. With the Wildcats leading 56-54, an official whistled guard Mark Lyons for a double-dribble violation with 4:37 remaining in the game. Miller responded by yelling from the sidelines that the defender “touched the ball” and was hit with a technical foul, even though replays

UA football coach faces assault charges James kelley Arizona Summer Wildcat

Arizona football’s laundry list of woes since the Territorial Cup continued in May, when assistant strength and conditioning coach Frank Davis faces charges for assaulting a student manager. After then No. 24 Arizona blew a 10-point lead and lost 41-34 to ASU, Davis and the manager got into a fight on Nov. 24, 2012, according to a University of Arizona Police Department report.

The student was handing out boxes of food when Davis asked him what was inside. The manager said he wasn’t sure and Davis said “quit being a pussy,” according to the plaintiff in the report. The student said to leave him alone, to quit “bitching about it” and that he was not afraid of Davis. “If you call me a bitch again I’m going to split your forehead open,” Davis said. The student manager said Davis “sucker punched him in the chest” then picked him

Head COACH Sean Miller rants in a postgame press conference about a technical foul call in the final minutes of Arizona’s 66-64 loss to UCLA on March 15 in the Pac-12 basketball tournament in Las Vegas. It was later revealed that before the game the Pac-12 head of officials jokingly offered payment to a referee if he gave Miller a technical.

up and slammed him on a table that had water bottles on it. Two witnesses said in the police report that Davis pushed the manager, but did not punch him. The student filed a complaint with Human Resources but was unsatisfied with its actions and decided to press charges. The UAPD report said that a Pima County Sheriff’s Deputy Officer reported that a “large black male” was walking away from the area and said “something like ‘Got to learn some fucking respect.’” Davis told police that “I was attacked by the dude and I was defending myself.” Davis said he tried to walk away and used the “least amount of force to stop him.” In the report, the student said that Davis had previously “bullied” him. On May 9, UAPD issued Davis a citation for assault. Davis pleaded not guilty and has a Pima County Justice Court date on June 25.

A statement released by the UA’s Athletic Director Greg Byrne said the situation is a personnel issue and that they cannot comment. “When dealing with personnel matters, we take each situation seriously. Personnel matters are not handled solely by the Athletics Department,” Byrne said. “As required by University policies and procedures, we involve appropriate campus departments. Unfortunately, we are not allowed by law to comment on personnel issues or the status of any particular case.” KVOA News 4 Tucson reported that Davis was suspended by the UA with pay, but his contract will not be renewed after it expires in June. Davis was an offensive lineman at South Florida from 2002-05. He played for three years for the Detroit Lions and then in the United Football League. He was hired by the UA in December 2011.

Track readies for NCAAs Chris real Arizona Summer Wildcat

The track and field NCAA Championships start today and continue through Saturday in Eugene, Oreg., and Arizona’s No. 22 men’s and No. 6 women’s track teams will compete in a variety of events. For seniors Georganne Moline and Brigetta Barrett, the championships will be their final meet as Wildcats. “I keep thinking that I have to get ready for fall and my classes,” Moline said. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m done.’ I think it will hit me after nationals, I really think it will be an emotional meet for me, in a good way. It will be bittersweet.” Moline is coming off of a second place finish in the 400-meter hurdles at the Prefontaine Classic, also in Eugene, this past weekend with a time of 54.75. She will be competing in the same event in the championship. Barrett, who was named the West Regions Women’s Field Athlete of the year and the Pac-12 Woman of the Year, said she started to feel the impact of her career winding down when she walked across the stage for graduation. Barrett was one of the first in her family to graduate from college and a few days later, she broke the collegiate women’s high jump record at the Pac12 Championships in Los Angeles. “It was just a culmination of everything I worked so hard for,” Barrett said. Both seniors are coming into the championships with high expectations, especially after competing in the 2012 London Olympics. Moline participated in the 400-meter hurdles and finished fifth while Barrett earned a silver medal in the high jump. “The Olympics really changed my life. It made me realize a lot about what I wanted out of track, and just

seeing that I could make my way to the top,” Moline said. “I really found my passion, even more than what I had.” After breaking the collegiate record for the women’s high jump last month, with a jump of 6-6.25 meters, Barrett said she has high expectations of herself in the championship. “Oh, I plan on breaking the collegiate world record again,” Barrett said. “So anything above 6.6-25 [meters].”

Long roads traveled to the finals While juniors Lawi Lalang and Julie Labonté hail from outside the United States, both enter the NCAA Championships in the same cardinal and navy uniforms. Lalang, who was born in Kenya, will run in the 5,000-meter and

the 10,000-meter races; while Labonté, who is from Canada, will be competing in shot put and discus. With the end of the season approaching, Lalang said he has come a long way from where he was. “I’ve learned a lot from last year,” Lalang said. “Last year, I was not in this kind of shape. It’s because I didn’t train as I did this year and it was a lesson to me.” Labonté also competed in last year’s Olympics representing Canada. Though she didn’t come away with a medal, she said she learned a lot from the Olympics. “You have to compete at a high level even though everyone is competing really well, you have a name to represent,” Labonté said. “So of course you just have to compete and hopefully the results will go with it.”

showed that Miller was correct. UCLA’s Jordan Adams hit both free throws to tie the game and the Bruins eventually won 66-64. In addition to the infamous press conference, Miller was fined $25,000 for his postgame actions. After the final horn sounded, Miller walked toward referee Michael Irving, who called the technical, and “cussed at him” several times, according to the Ice Miller report. The Arizona head coach then yelled in the hallway, as he made his way to the locker room while a Pac-12 Network junior staff member was nearby. The fine given to Miller was significantly larger than any other fines handed out to coaches that season, and the report said it was “unprecedented compared to previous disciplinary sanctions.” However, the report added that the fines were within Scott’s authority and that the sanctions were “reasonable.” “We are appreciative of the effort by the CEO Council to commission an independent review of the issues related to the Conference tournament,” Athletic Director Greg Byrne said in a press release. “Coach Miller and I have discussed the report, and we are ready to move forward. We remain hopeful this report will lead to improvements in our officiating program.” Byrne added that he will make no further comments on the matter. While the controversy was already in full swing, tensions between the UA athletic department and the Pac-12 escalated, as shown by several emails obtained by USA Today in late April. Once Miller and Byrne

discovered the bounty comments by Rush, Byrne emailed Scott asking him to waive the fine, according to the USA Today report. The commissioner said he would, if three conditions were met: Miller would apologize to the junior staff member, that he would meet with Rush and Scott and the UA athletic department would work with Miller on his conduct. He refused, but did formally apologize to the staffer. Though, finally with the independent review completed and Rush gone, the controversy seems to be at an end. Scott said it is time to look forward, not in the review mirror, and he also plans on rebuilding the relationship with Miller. “We’re looking forward to spending time with [Miller] before the season and making sure he has the time to engage with the new leadership of our basketball officiating program once that’s established,” Scott said. “I’ve got no question or concern about the great relationship we’re going to have going forward.” In a press conference earlier in May, Miller would not comment on the ongoing Ice Miller report but did say he had the highest level of gratitude for the “support of Dr. Hart and from Greg Byrne” during the process. Monday night he tweeted similar gratitude to Hart, Byrne and Wildcat fans. “For a basketball coach who gets in a situation like this, not every place would have the incredible support with which I’ve been fortunate to have,” Miller said in the press conference. “It’s probably the most meaningful thing that’s happened to me since I’ve been the head coach at Arizona. Just to watch their undying support and the communication that we had, especially Dr. Hart who just came on board here recently. It’s a great feeling to have.”

Arizona Summer Wildcat • 11

Early exit seals historically bad season James kelley Arizona Summer Wildcat

After suffering through his worst season in years, Arizona softball coach Mike Candrea feels like the frustration will turn into determination as the team tries to avoid a similar slump. The Wildcats (33-26, 9-15 Pac-12) were eliminated by Baylor in the first round of the NCAA tournament, going 1-2 in the College Station Regional. This was the first time that the UA didn’t make it to Super Regionals, as well as the first time it didn’t win a Regional since 2004. “We were very disappointed to be honest with you,” Candrea said about the 2013 season. “We could never get all facets of the game going. [We] had a few holes that we need to get better at and that’s what we’re attempting to do right now.” The UA’s 33 wins is its lowest since it went 2713-1 in Candrea’s first year in 1986, and this was its worst postseason finish since 1987. Arizona did win its last two series though, at home against then-No. 5 ASU and at then-No. 13 Stanford, rebounding after slipping to last place in the Pac-12 after being swept by Oregon State. “I think we grew a lot, just as a team understanding where we needed to be, for next year,” junior catcher/first baseman Kelsey Rodriguez said. “We understand where the

downfalls were, I guess, and where we need to be and what we need to get there.” Arizona fell out of the ESPN/USA Today Softball Collegiate Top 25 rankings for the first time in program history. Still, the Wildcats were competitive against the College World Series field, going 4-7 in the season. “We’re not that far off, we just need to build some consistency,” Candrea said. “We just need a deeper line up more than anything.” The UA lost two of its best players right before the season started when sophomore shortstop Shelby Pendley transferred to Oklahoma and senior ace Kenzie Fowler was forced to redshirt because of back surgery. “Anytime you lose good players it can affect you,” Candrea said, “but I really felt that there were times that we played well enough to compete with anyone and just couldn’t sustain it.” Pendley was named Big 12 Player of the Year, beating out her Sooner teammate Keilani Ricketts, the 2012 and 2013 National Player of the Year. Oklahoma won the Women’s College World Series on Tuesday night. To replace Pendley, Arizona’s lone senior, Brigette Del Ponte moved to shortstop, cramming to learn the new position as spring practice started in January. Del Ponte’s batting average dropped from .328 to .241, her RBIs fell to 34 from 56 in 2012

“We had a lot of young girls and next year will be something different for sure,” junior pitcher Estela Piñon (13-8) said. Sophomore outfielder/first baseman Hallie Wilson and sophomore catcher Chelsea Goodacre were named first-team All-Pac-12, while third baseman Lauren Young and outfielder Mandie Perez were named to the AllFreshman team. Candrea said he felt like the underclassmen often panicked when things didn’t go their way. “I think a lot of times young kids don’t know what they’re getting into until they get into it,” he said. “So hopefully all these freshman and sophomores will be better.”

and her home runs dropped from 15 to six. However, Del Ponte’s fielding percentage actually rose from .943 in 2012 to .952. With Del Ponte in her new position, Arizona featured an entirely new starting line-up.

After being one of the most impactful players for the Wildcats, Wilson was invited to tryout for the USA National team June 10-12. She led Arizona in batting (.372) and had an on base percentage of .476 as team’s leadoff hitter. Wilson is one of six sophomores on the 32 player tryout list, which includes 26 juniors, seniors or college graduates competing for 17 slots. Young will play for the Junior National team, while freshman pitcher Nancy Bowling is an alternate.

Arizona Summer Wildcat • 15 COLIN DARLAND / DAILY

UA filmmaker moves on up after graduation K.C. LIBMAN Arizona Summer Wildcat

Despite all of their teachings, students often forge their own path to find success, independent of the hardships or shortcomings they may face. Abe Zverow, a recent UA alumnus and a participant in this year’s “I Dream In Widescreen” BFA showcase, took the path less traveled with his self-produced, written and directed documentary “Jonathan” which was chosen to be showcased at the Palm Springs International ShortFest. The film is an 8-minute documentary that covers a day in the life of a 12-year-old Ecuadorian boy who spends the entirety of his waking hours either working in his neighborhood market or at school. It’s a telling glimpse into the way of life that children in Ecuador face, as Jonathan gets up at 4 a.m. to work alongside his mother and then attends school from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., often all while taking care of the duties of being the man of the house as his father is not part of his family’s life. Zverow didn’t find his calling from the silver screen, but rather in producing skate videos, which fed into his interest in film production. “Through high school it was skate videos and a couple music videos, and I didn’t know what I was doing. I got Final Cut and it just took off from there,” Zverow said, citing the premier Apple editing program as his technical push into filmmaking. Much like the skate videos he has created, Zverow’s process for “Jonathan” was developed in a singular approach in which he manned the camera, edited clips and tracked audio on his own. Armed with just a DSLR camera and a single shotgun mic, Zverow followed a local guide into the market to capture Jonathan’s story. Gaining intimate access into the local culture was difficult, but even studying abroad was a challenge in itself. “I always wanted to study abroad, but being in the BFA program didn’t allow that because the track is pretty stringent and there’s only 18 of us,” Zverow said. “Because it’s pretty

close-knit, the four main faculty members signed off and said I could go abroad. I didn’t even know where I was going.” Zverow then found himself in Ecuador, using his film experience to produce local promotional videos, which led him to the market where he would meet Jonathan. Upon building community ties, Zverow was allowed an “all-access pass” to community culture, allowing for the personal angle of his documentary. “I helped this local guy shoot his own project and he was pretty much my security in the market, so in return he had my back,” Zverow said. “I couldn’t just show up with a camera, I would have gotten robbed. I didn’t have the access at all [on my own].” Children like Jonathan burn both ends of the candle in a way that’s nothing but foreign to most Americans. While Ecuadorian life may seem arduous, Zverow set out to paint a different picture while becoming acquainted with his subject. “I had almost studied education, so I’m definitely all about kids,” he said. “I thought would be really interesting — a glimpse into Ecuador that people don’t normally get to see, through this kid’s work day.” Critical reception to “Jonathan” has gotten Zverow to the next step in his filmmaking career. Panel members from the “I Dream In Widescreen” showcase offered Zverow the opportunity to show “Jonathan” at the Palm Springs festival. The festival itself is an industry standard in documentary filmmaking that’s also an Academy Award qualifying event. Documentary work seems to be Zverow’s calling, as he doesn’t necessarily foresee himself moving to Los Angeles and pursuing fiction film work, but instead heading back to Ecuador to shed light on the culture that embraced him. Even if he’s working alone, in a far from typical fashion, “Jonathan” proves that Zverow is more than capable of telling a story in his own right, no matter the approach he takes. “On one hand it was cool to have [“Jonathan”] be my brainchild, but on many other hands we’re so used to being so collaborative, you just have a whole crew and it’s very effective,” he said. “I wanted to explore a different route.”

CCP exhibit shows Mexican pride

hailey eisenbach/arizona summer Wildcat

Showcasing an intimate take on Mexican culture, the Lola Alvarez Bravo and the Photography of an Era exhibit is on display at the Center for Creative Photography until June 23.

Galina SwordS Arizona Summer Wildcat

The UA’s Center for Creative Photography houses the largest collection of North American fine art photographs, with exhibits in the first floor gallery showcasing prints by some of the world’s most influential photographers. The Lola Alvarez Bravo and the Photography of an Era exhibit, which opened on March 30 and continues through June 23, gives a haunting look into Mexico, mainly from 1940 to 1960. The exhibit features over 100 gelatin silver prints from Bravo as well as from her students, Mariana Yampolsky and Raúl Conde from the Academia de San Carlos, and

her husband Manuel Bravo. Many of the prints are from the Gonzalez Rendon Archive and the Center for Creative Photography’s own archive of Bravo’s photos. Her photos capture the raw human emotions of mourning, anger, contentment and show the beauty of Mexico’s people and culture. One photo titled “Por culpas ajenas (Pena de muerte)” or “For the Fault of Others (Death Penalty)” stands out, showing a young woman crouching in front of a set of iron bars with a pained expression crossing her face as she looks into the distance. In 1991, when an elderly Bravo moved out of the apartment she had lived in for more than 40 years, boxes and suitcases filled with her prints and negatives were left behind. Wellesley College senior

art lecturer James Oles, who was one of the first experts to examine the collection, said “… the move was rapid, somewhat chaotic, and took place without the supervision of the one person — Lola herself — who really knew what was what.” With Bravo’s death in 1993, the forgotten images might have been lost forever had it not been for the Gonzalez Rendon family. When they purchased the apartment in the early 2000’s, they uncovered all of the materials and recognized their historical and artistic significance. In a recent New York Times article, Adriana Zavala, one of the installation’s guest curators said, “It was like the Antiques Roadshow when we found this stuff, went through it carefully and got an opportunity to understand Lola in

an ‘unauthorized’ way.” Zavala and fellow guest curator Rachael Arauz have since brought the Lola Alvarez Bravo exhibition to life with the help of the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo, the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y Las Artes and the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes. A book of her work, called “Lola Alvarez Bravo and the Photography of an Era,” was published in September 2012 in Mexico. The UA’s free exhibition is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and provides the perfect summer activity for students and visitors to experience the beauty of Mexican history through the eyes of this unique artist.
