Next month, UA students, faculty and visitors will no longer be allowed to use tobacco products on all UA property as the university enacts a policy years in the making
on the Arizona Health Sciences Center campus. SHAC has been researching and advocating a tobacco-free main campus since 2012 as well, Kha said. “This policy aims to benefit the health of all of the members of our campus community and places the UA in a leadership position for the city of Tucson to look up to as well,” Kha said. SHAC conducted surveys amongst students and faculty at the UA and held meetings to discuss the strengths and challenges of a tobacco-free campus. Kha said SHAC also raised awareness of the litter associated with the use of tobacco products by hosting two cigarette butt cleanup competitions. During
UA students are having a hard time buying groceries around campus. Some contribute it to a lack of money or transportation, but the reality is that sufficient food options are simply inaccessible. The UA campus is considered a food desert. A food desert can be described as an area in the United States with limited access to affordable and nutritious food, particularly such an area composed of predominantly lower-income neighborhoods and communities. The UA, along with much of downtown including the Congress Street entertainment district, is considered a food desert because 67.8 percent of the 366 total households in the area are without vehicles and are more than half a mile from a supermarket, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Many students living around campus do not have the resources to go grocery shopping. “We have a serious problem in that the University of Arizona, while it has done wonderful things all across the country, hasn’t taken care of the hunger and poverty in our own city,” said Gary Nabhan, a research social scientist at the Southwest Studies Center. “There are many students who are either on welfare or are in jobs where they’re just breaking even and they’re really at risk in terms of their own food security.” With the shortfall of grocery stores around campus, students have resorted to the many on-campus food options at the UA, using school provided meal plans that range from $2,500 to $3,500 throughout the academic school year.

A NEWLY ADOPTED UA policy will prohibit the use of tobacco products on all UA property beginning on Aug. 15. The current policy proposal disallows the use of any tobacco or nicotine-containing products, including e-cigarettes.

After years of discussion, the UA has announced that it will adopt a policy to ban the use of tobacco products on all UA property and campuses beginning Aug. 15. The current version of the policy proposal prohibits the use of tobacco, tobacco-related and nicotine-containing products like e-cigarettes at the UA. The policy is an attempt to improve the health of those working and studying on campus. The policy is also meant to keep the campus clean of the litter that is typically associated with the use of tobacco products like cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco. Compliance with the policy
will be encouraged by personal responsibility. UA students and faculty are encouraged to inform anyone they see using tobacco products on campus of the policy. Visitors on campus who are not in compliance with the policy may be required to leave. Students who are out of compliance will be referred to their college’s student representatives for educational resources. Employees and volunteers will be referred to their supervisors for appropriate action. “The success of this Policy depends on the entire campus community and its members being willing to hold one another accountable. Whenever possible, concerns about tobacco and nicotine use should be respectfully addressed at the time such
concerns arise,” the policy states. Issac Ortega, president of Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said ASUA has been involved with the tobacco-free policy throughout the process. Last year, ASUA voted against the policy, but has been working with the Student Health Advocacy Committee since, and found most UA students are in support of the policy, Ortega said. He said he endorses the tobaccoban personally and as the ASUA president. Ortega has asthma and said that family members choosing to smoke around him growing up affected his health. Stephanie Kha, director of the SHAC, said that SHAC helped support the 2012 tobacco-ban

QRegent &A chairman
talks tuition, safety
BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY
Arizona Summer Wildcat
After a year of budget battles, tuition change and a renewed focus on student safety, the Arizona Board of Regents, which governs the state’s public universities, has kept itself busy. The Arizona Summer Wildcat spoke with the new regents chairman, Mark Killian, who began his term this month, about what challenges lie ahead for Arizona universities and their students.
on the universities’ presidents to continually improve and be the very best we can. … The other thing is that we have a responsibility to preserve the investment that every student has in their degree and so we have to shepherd and protect the institutions so we protect that value of the student’s degree. With as much money as they’re spending to get a degree, we have a responsibility to make sure that degree increases in value every year. We have to drive down the cost of tuition for our students and the only way to do that is to go to the taxpayers and ask them to support a funding mechanism to reduce the cost of tuition.

on the board of regents is figuring out how we can come up with a ballot measure to go to the vote of the people to drive down the cost. I would like to see us have tuition for Arizona residents to be no more than $5,000 a year. I don’t think you have to mortgage your future to have to get a college education. This past year the UA passed a guaranteed tuition plan, and Northern Arizona University has a similar plan. Should Arizona State University adopt a guaranteed tuition plan like the UA and NAU? Not necessarily. I think each institution knows the needs of its institutions and I wouldn’t force it on ASU. That’s something the administrators need to figure out. An athletic program fee at ASU was added last year and at the UA a 2.5 percent convenience fee was added to Bursar’s payments. Do you think there will be any changes made to student fees for Arizona schools? There is always an ongoing debate on fees and so I’m sure there will all kinds of proposals out there. You have to let the institutions visit with the students and figure out what they want to do and bring it to us to figure out if it makes sense. The bottom line is, as much as we’d like to increase the academic quality of our institutions,

we also want to increase the athletic powers of our universities. Whether people like it or not, the fact remains that if you have successful sports programs they generate revenue for the institution. What do you think are the biggest challenges facing college students today? The cost of tuition is by far the number one challenge. I really don’t like seeing our students coming out of their bachelor’s program with a bucket load of debt. This past year, the regents created the statewide Student Safety Task Force and it presented its findings last month. How do you think the task force performed? I think they did very well. I think it helped us highlight the problems that we have at our universities with alcohol and drugs. A year ago I was pounding the table saying we have

to do something. You send your kids off to school and they come away with a degree in business and a degree in alcoholism. That’s not the way it ought to be at the universities. There is a culture that has to occur to get that stopped and I’m hopeful that the task force will help us help change some of that culture. … It’s not a majority of the students. It’s a few that create the problems, but the damage they do to the institutions is tremendous because what gets reported is a few students that do some bad things that overshadow the good things the students are doing like all the service projects and service hours they’re doing in the community. When the national press picks it up, they classify us as a bunch of party schools and that diminishes the value of our degrees. A fraternity at the UA was recently put under interim suspension for being accused of several violations. Should universities crack down harder on fraternities? Absolutely. I suggested that you force all the fraternities and sororities to come and justify their existence or their relationship with the university based on the service they’re doing and how they’re controlling their members when it comes to alcohol and drugs. The reason I felt that way is that I feel that we need to get serious in combatting this social problem that we have. I recognize that there are a lot of good fraternities and sororities out there and it probably isn’t fair to the good ones, but again, there’s too much at stake for the institutions to continue down the path that we’ve been on.

After much anticipation, the Tucson Sun Link Modern Streetcar ribbon-cutting ceremony will be this Friday. Beginning at 7 a.m., the festivities will include 15-minute ribbon cuttings at the Mercado, the UA, Main Gate Square and Fourth Avenue districts. A grand opening will take place on Congress Street and Fifth Avenue at 9 a.m. Free rides will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Michael Graham, a media representative for Sun Link Streetcars, said he encourages Tucson residents to take advantage of these events. “There are many options for riders,” Graham said. “Day passes lasting for 24 hours after the first transaction are available for $4, while 30-day passes can be purchased for $28.” Graham added that these cards can be bought using Visa, MasterCard or exact change. A 1-Day SunGO ticket allows one to ride Sun Link, Sun Tran and select Sun Shuttle routes as well. The 3.9 mile streetcar route, running from Helen Street and Warren Avenue through Fourth Avenue to downtown, connects major activity centers including the UA and Arizona Health Sciences Center with the downtown business districts on Fourth Avenue and Congress Street.

Ford on the Loose
University of Arizona Police Department officers transported a non-UA affiliated man to the Pima County Sheriff ’s Department for driving under the influence of alcohol on June 15. UAPD officers noticed a red Ford driving suspiciously on Speedway Boulevard around 1 a.m. The car was swerving into the right turn lane and came to a complete stop at a green light. While stopped at the green light, the car activated the left turn directional while not in the left turn lane. UAPD officers pulled the car over. Officers noticed the driver’s eyes were watery and bloodshot. Upon exiting the vehicle, the driver fell forward and had to grab the door frame for balance. Officers smelled intoxicants on the man’s breath. The man admitted to having had alcohol that evening. He showed multiple cues of intoxication during the standard field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test showed the driver to have a blood alcohol level of 0.177. The driver was handed over to PCSD, which arrested the man on charges of an Extreme DUI and placed him in custody.
UAPD officers responded to a call of intentional vandalism on the morning of June 14. Officers arrived at the Facilities Management building on Vine Avenue where they met with the reporting party, a maintenance supervisor. The supervisor told officers that a facilities employee had found a handwritten sign hung on the fence surrounding the building. The sign was white, with the words: “[Name omitted] loves cock.” The supervisor said he believed the sign was referring to a highup Facilities Management administrator. The supervisor said he could not think of anyone employed with facilities who would have made the sign. UAPD officers attempted to collect footage from nearby surveillance cameras, but none faced the scene of the crime. Officers took pictures of the sign and placed them into evidence.

Residence Life anticipates a larger number of incoming freshmen moving into the dorms this fall. In order to accommodate as many first-year students as possible, a limited-time, limited-availability incentive will be offered to returning students to give up their dorm space and move off campus, Residence Life officials said.

He also said that there was an increase in fresh produce food trucks popping up in the same areas as well. As part of the Students for Sustainability, Choi is involved in the Food For All Committee where she said students are pushing hard for the idea of the UA setting up a farmers’ market stand once a week and providing students with local produce on campus that they can purchase for a reasonable price. “It’s definitely the way to go and I think it will happen in the next couple of years while I’m here,” Choi said. The USDA’s Economic Research Service estimates that 23.5 million people live in food deserts. More than half of those people (13.5 million) are low income.

From cafeteria dining to national franchises and brands, the student union is the primary destination for most on-campus meals with restaurant options ranging from Burger King, Panda Express and Chick-fil-A, to healthier alternatives such as Core and IQ Fresh. “I think they [the UA] have a lot of good options, the only thing is it is expensive, which is understandable but there are some things I think students can get for a reasonable price,” said Stephanie Choi, a UA sophomore and member of Students for Sustainability. Students who eat exclusively on campus are faced with the problem of choosing between cost or nutritional value of their daily meals. Many students sacrifice the quality of nutritious meals by electing to go with less nutritious, cost-friendly options on campus, a scenario that is routine among college students who don’t regularly shop for

one competition, 60 student volunteers collected 25,000 cigarette butts from around the UA campus in 45 minutes. Allison Vaillancourt, vice president of institutional effectiveness and human resources, said that a robust student effort to develop the policy began last summer, and the proposal was created early in the spring. She said student feedback was collected throughout the spring, and then the policy was opened to feedback from members of the community. Vaillancourt said that the UA has received positive feedback from individuals, stating that they are excited to be on a smoke-free campus. She has also received some negative feedback from people questioning why e-cigarettes are included in the policy and suggesting designated smoking areas. The UA has been in contact with numerous institutions across the country with similar policies, Vaillancourt said. These institutions said that once the policies were implemented, it took a while for people to get used to them. When the AHSC went smoke-free, employees adjusted and Vaillancourt said she is sure that UA employees will adjust as well. “We are trying to be a healthy campus,” she said. “There are many people on our campus who want to be able to breathe freely without cigarette smoke.”

magine you live in a country where you cannot survive. Jobs are hard to come by and those available will not provide enough for a healthy life for you, let alone your family. However, you are told that if you are willing to take the risk and cross multiple borders, you can go to a place where you can earn enough to live, as well as send money home. What would you do? For many of our ancestors, the pursuit of a life better than the one described above drove them from around the world to the United States. In many ways these are the same conditions that now drive people from Central America to the U.S. Many have made it through and are now working illegally in the U.S. The dangers, like abuse, arrest, deportation and even death, are real possibilities, yet still people cross the border every day to create a better future for themselves and their loved ones. Those caught are processed and sent back to their country of origin. However, a recent surge in child immigrants from Central America has presented a quandary for this process. Due to 2008 changes to the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, minors from countries other than Mexico are taken into custody for an extended period until they are either deported to their home nation or taken in by family. Recently, we learned of the terrible conditions of these minors who are packed in overcrowded facilities. The issue has become a major topic in recent weeks, as people were shocked and angered by the living conditions for these children. More shocking though, has been the response of conservatives like Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. Sheriff Babeu is reported to have questioned the minors’ gang affiliation and the possibility of spreading disease. This, along with other criticism of the use of tax dollars to house the minors, makes one wonder if these criticisms are justified, and do these critics have better solutions?

IMMIGRATION FROM PAGE 8
I say no to both. The criticisms that are coming from immigration protesters are xenophobic ramblings rather than valid points. They turn a real human rights issue into what sounds like a pest problem, and their solution ignores many of the reasons that the laws are in place as they are currently. Many opposed to the presence of the Central American minors have expressed concern that the immigrants coming in will spread diseases like influenza and Ebola. “Reports of illegal immigrants carrying deadly diseases such as swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis are particularly concerning,” Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Georgia) said in an NBC News interview. “Many of the children who are coming across the border also lack basic vaccinations such as those to prevent chicken pox or measles. This makes Americans who are not vaccinated — and especially young children and the elderly — particularly susceptible.” However, the article suggested that the claims that illegal immigrants spread disease are false. Sick immigrant children are far more likely to have typical illnesses (common in the U.S.) than exotic diseases, and according to
NBC News, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras have higher vaccination rates than the U.S. The issue of Central American gangs, such as MS-13, is real. However, these gangs are not new to the U.S., and gang members are more quickly deported. As with diseases, gang activity would not spread out of a holding facility. Still, many also express anger that tax dollars are used for holding and caring for these minors that are awaiting final action. They instead want them removed as fast as possible. However, our tax dollars and all of this treatment that we offer to these children, though flawed, is out of compassion and humanity. Whether or not they are sent back, as long as they are here they should be treated as humans. These protestors holding signs that say “return to sender” show a lack of compassion and make it look as though we are treating these people as animals. That lack of compassion is what is most wrong with these protests. In protesting the basic services given to people, protesters are treating these children like a roach problem.

Trio named Cape Cod All-Stars BY EVAN ROSENFELD
Arizona Summer Wildcat
Arizona baseball players Kevin Newman, Nathan Bannister and Bobby Dalbec were selected to represent their respective teams in the 2014 Cape Cod All-Star Game. The 52nd annual event will take place on Sunday at Doran Park in Bourne, Mass. and first pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. MST. “It’s good to see these guys go out and perform well this summer, I’m very happy for them,” UA baseball head coach Andy Lopez said. “It’s a great experience, is good for the program and bodes well for all three of them to come back and have productive years next season.” Last summer, Newman made Cape Cod League history when he became the first freshman to claim the CCBL batting title after finishing with a league-leading .375 batting average. This year, he ranks first in the league with a .393 batting average and ranks fourth overall with a .471 on base percentage. Additionally, Newman has amassed 16 RBIs and scored 14 runs over 22 games played. “It’s an honor to be selected as an All-Star,” Newman said. “As for defending the CCBL batting title, I haven’t really been focused on it. I came into Cape Cod this summer not trying to defend that because I didn’t want to put that pressure on myself, but putting in quality at-bats has got me to the position where that actually is a possibility.” Newman said this summer he’s been more selective at the plate and hasn’t been getting himself out as much as he did last season. He also said that he changed his stance a little bit, but that the major change has come from his increased discipline

in the batter’s box. “I really think he is going to take the role I hoped he had taken last year,” Lopez said of Newman. “Probably the biggest ingredient you need in a coach is patience. He’s a great young man with two years of success and has arguably been one of the best out there at the highest level of summer baseball. I’m hoping he’ll come back and be the leader that you need at the shortstop position.” Bannister, who plays for the Orleans Firebirds along with UA teammates Dalbec and Cody Moffett, has shown his true potential this summer and was rewarded with a nod to the East Division All-Star roster as a reserve pitcher.
UA STUDENT-ATHLETES SET ACADEMIC RECORD
“As a coach, I’m always rooting for Nathan Bannister,” Lopez said. “He’s a good guy, works hard, never complains and takes any road you give him in a pitching situation.” This summer, Bannister abandoned his submarine style delivery and has opted for a more traditional over-the-top motion. The change in arm slot has provided a noticeable increase in his velocity — now hovering in the low 90 mph range instead of the mid-80s. “Throwing back over the top has allowed me to pitch more accurately down in the zone and force more ground balls,” Bannister said. He has posted a 4-0 record (tied for the most in the league), compiled

an ERA of 2.10 and racked up 21 strikeouts over 30 innings pitched. Bannister’s summer ball coach, Kelly Nicholson, was a former assistant coach of Lopez back when he was the head coach at Cal State Dominguez Hills, and every time Bannister, Dalbec or Moffett takes the mound, Nicholson texts Lopez, giving him blow-by-blow coverage and detailed reports. So even though Lopez didn’t spend his summer in Cape Cod, he’s up to date with his players’ progressions. “I got a lot of good reports from [Nicholson] in regards to Nathan Bannister,” Lopez said. “We’re excited to get him back and we need him to step up this year so hopefully he’ll provide some good competition and leadership in the rotation.” Dalbec has served as an integral two-way player this summer for the Firebirds. While he is only hitting .191, he has smacked a team-leading four home runs to accompany 15 RBIs and 10 runs scored over 21 games. He was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American last month and has also seen success on the mound. Dalbec is in possession of a 2.57 ERA, has struck out nine, walked three and collected a save through eight appearances totaling seven innings pitched. Earlier this month, he was the first Arizona baseball player to participate in the College Baseball Home Run Derby in Omaha, Neb. While he didn’t make it past the first round, he hit three home runs and caught the attention of many. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17

Johnson's NBA career takes flight
BY JUSTIN SPEARS Arizona Summer Wildcat
eadlining five former Wildcats in the 2014 NBA Summer League is Sacramento Kings forward Derrick Williams, who is going on his fourth season in the Association. In addition to Williams, 2014 draft picks Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson join 2013 draft picks Solomon Hill and Grant Jerrett as Wildcats listed on summer league rosters. Hill and Jerrett were both held out of summer league play due to injuries. Nick Johnson started off the summer league in Orlando and recorded 18 points in his debut against the Detroit Pistons. That first game is where Johnson really showed his athletic ability and potential to play in the NBA in one move. Johnson cut to the bucket and posterized Detroit’s Tim Ohlbrecht. The left-handed slam earned a spot on ESPN’s top plays. That game was just the start for Johnson, as he has scored in double-figures every single game except for an eight-point

Fans emphasized in new slogan BY JAMES KELLEY
Arizona Summer Wildcat
2014 may be the Year of the Horse in the Chinese zodiac, but to Arizona football, it is the year of the fan. UA football’s latest marketing campaign is fan-centric, with the slogan “Be The One: 11+1.” The UA also launched an initiative to get more fan feedback. “It’s a little bit of a play on the whole ‘12th Man’ deal,” said Ben Chulick, assistant athletic director for marketing. “We came up with Arizona football being 11 plus one and from that we came up with ‘be the one.’” The poster features Arizona football players poised to run onto the field with fans cheering in the background. Last year it featured players, and in 2012, football head coach Rich Rodriguez was the dominant photo. “The one represents the unified, TYLER BAKER/ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT hopefully full, packed Arizona Stadium ZONAZOO PLAYS TOWARD the video camera by putting up the number one before Arizona vs. ASU rocking with fans,” Chulick said. “The fan men's basketball game in McKale Center.

performance against the Los Angeles Clippers. Johnson even compiled a triple-double against the Brooklyn Nets. Nick Johnson was selected 42nd overall by the Houston Rockets. His selection is widely believed to be a diamond in the rough. To give Johnson even more confidence, the Rockets traded PG Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers and let Chandler Parsons sign with Dallas in an attempt to clear cap space for Chris Bosh or Carmelo Anthony, but instead couldn’t land either one in free agency. Add up the minutes opened by those departures and we could see a rookie like Johnson shine for the Rockets. The next Wildcat to shine in the summer league is 2014 lottery pick Aaron Gordon. Gordon hasn’t had as much exposure as Johnson, simply because Johnson is on the better summer team. In the five games the Orlando Magic played the entire summer, Gordon averaged less than eight points and seven rebounds. The No. 4 overall pick has shown glimpses of a jump shot but it’s obvious his shot is still a project. The next and oldest Wildcat in the NBA summer league is Derrick Williams. Many people wouldn’t think Williams would still be in the summer league especially going into his fourth season in the Association. Williams averaged just 8.0 PPG this past season and is looking to return to a young and talented Kings roster. It’s safe to say Williams is entering a make-orbreak season. To make things more interesting, Johnson and his Rockets matched up against Williams and his Sacramento Kings for the NBA Summer League championship in Las Vegas on Monday. However, Williams was ruled out due to coach’s decision, leaving Johnson as the only former Wildcat in the final game. In the second quarter of the championship game, Johnson made another athletic play that would be a highlight of the game. The combo-guard caught an alley-oop and finished the dunk reverse style. Johnson lead the way for the Rockets with 17 points but it wasn’t enough as the Kings finished the game on a 15-2 run and Sacramento took the game 77-68. — Follow Justin Spears @Hercules_52

New baseball coach returns to alma mater BY EVAN ROSENFELD
Arizona Summer Wildcat
Last month, Arizona baseball announced the addition of former Wildcat and Major League veteran Shelley Duncan to its coaching staff as an undergraduate assistant. Duncan will be working primarily with hitters and outfielders as the program looks to rebound and rebuild after a lackluster season last year. In addition to coaching, he will also be taking courses to complete his undergraduate degree. Duncan, a Tucson native, played for Arizona between 1999 and 2001 where he gained a reputation for driving the long-ball. 30 percent of his college hits came by way of home runs (55 career home runs out of 183 career hits, and he still stands as the program’s all-time home run leader. After his junior year, Duncan was drafted in the second round with the 62nd overall pick of the 2001 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees. He debuted in the Majors in 2007 for New York, and over the next seven seasons also saw time with the Cleveland Indians and Tampa Bay Rays. He played a total of 330 MLB games and ended his professional career with exactly 200 career hits, batting .226 over 885-plate appearances. The Arizona Summer Wildcat got a chance to sit down with Duncan and ask him a few questions:
college baseball, you need a degree, and I’m a year or so short. So I think the timing is great — there’s an opening here and coach [Andy] Lopez and I talked about it. Mostly, it’s giving me a chance to finally sit down and be with my family and be home for a year straight at least and go from there. It’s a really good feeling and I really feel confident that it’s the best thing to do to start off the next chapter of my life.
Arizona Summer Wildcat: What made you want to return to your alma mater after your Major League career came to a close? Duncan: I already had a pretty good idea that I wanted to coach at some point down the road. I have a desire to manage professionally and possibly collegiately. One thing that’s keeping me short of that is a college degree. Anything you want to do with
How are you planning on approaching your first season of coaching? Is there anything in particular you wish to accomplish this upcoming year? I really want to do whatever I can to make these guys better baseball players. You know, by the time the season is over, I want them to be better both physically and mentally; I want them to understand the game at a better level and be successful on the field and off the field. I want to be a good influence on them. From a coach’s standpoint, that’s what I look for, but there’s a lot to learn in this time. Offensively, college baseball is not what it was when you played. In your opinion, was the NCAA’s choice to implement BBCOR bats a smart move? Why or why not? I think they went too far with it, I really do. Overall, you want there to be a fair game at any level, not only for safety reasons, but for entertainment reasons as well. People like to see close competitive games. They don’t like to see blowouts, but they don’t like to see hitters not having a shot. Every time I come back and see these guys using these bats, I feel for them. When you come and see a game, you want to see a three, four or five hitter pop one out of the park. It’s not a whole lot of fun when you’re watching the cleanup hitter sacrifice a guy over. But that’s what the game is right now and the NCAA definitely put it in this position.

NEW UA UNDERGRADUATE assistant baseball coach Shelley Duncan said he looks forward to passing on his knowledge, both mentally and physically, to the team this season.
What was the fondest memory of your collegiate career? We had the chance to go to a postseason my freshman year, but the things you really remember is the camaraderie. The hard practices, the nights out, the combination of both. Those things, still, when we all get together, those are the stories that last forever. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17

music that was all her own. The band took a break in early 2014 for Diaz to write and record a new solo project, which will be released later this year. For now, the band is touring around the Southwest before Diaz releases her new album. Diaz writes most of the band’s songs and has been singing, writing and performing since she was 13. The San Antonio native is a frequent guest of National Public Radio. NPR called her, “One of the two or three most exciting, scary-good vocalists in rock today.” She has toured the world with Morrissey, Tegan and Sara, Amanda Palmer, Sia, The Smashing Pumpkins and many more. Fans and critics are expecting to hear more of her hard-core moaning and indie-rock sound surrounding her lyrics in her new solo project. Girl in a Coma’s most recent album, Exits & All the Rest, features aggressive guitars and drums, intense screams from Diaz and what Consequence of Sound calls, “A unique blend of rock, punk and considerable Texas influence.” The trio that is Girl in a Coma is a prime example of today’s “girl rock” sound. Fans and critics alike are raving over Diaz’s writing and the fluid way it matches up with the rest of her group’s musicianship in Girl in a Coma’s new album. Girl in a Coma will be performing at The Flycatcher, the renamed version of Plush. The owner of Plush sold the iconic Fourth Avenue bar to a long-time employee, Justin McLamarrah. The employees and fans of Plush don’t appear to be too bummed; as Flycatcher employee Galen Snyder said, “Plushies still exist; live music will still be enjoyed.” Come prepared with your ID proving you’re 21 and up, $10 for admission and your favorite rock show attire.

INGRESS SWEEPS UA
New iOS game turns the UA into a technological freefor-all battlefield for players

Bear Down Gym, Old Main and the Engineering building. All some of the most recognizable spots on the UA campus, but to some, these are the trenches of a battle that started in late 2012. Google’s reality-bending mobile game Ingress is now available for both iOS and Android, and the game turns the UA campus, and the entire world, into a battlefield. Created by Niantic Labs, a startup company within Google, Ingress players use their phones to capture portals, which are landmarks, art installations and important historical and cultural locales. Unlike most games where the player navigates the game world using a controller or an ingame interface, players need to move around the real world with their GPS-enabled smartphones to play the game. “I definitely sit less at my PC,” said Adam Osman, an electrical and computer engineering senior and a local Resistance faction player. “I walk laps around the arts college area, student union, UMC and the Highland area after and in between classes, after work and during study breaks.” When players first start the game, they are asked to choose between the Enlightened and Resistance factions. Ingress’s story is told through in-game media, YouTube videos, cryptic images posted on social media and real life caches and is directly influenced by players’ actions within the game. Many players find Ingress enjoyable because it requires teamwork and coordination to be successful.

If you’re looking for a girl rock show in Tucson, look no further. This Wednesday at 8 p.m., Nina Diaz will lead Girl in a Coma in a 21-and-up rock show at The Flycatcher. After adding its lead singer and guitarist, Nina Diaz, Girl in a Coma has released four full-length records on Blackheart Records. Its debut album, Both Before I’m Gone, reached number 23 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. According to Girl in a Coma’s website, the band received its break after being noticed by the one and only Joan Jett, who signed Girl in a Coma to her label on the spot. In early 2013, Diaz began creating

Even when I was visiting other cities and my home country of Hong Kong, I was able to meet up with local players and socialized through a common interest.” Ingress is now available for no cost on iOS and Android. Ingress requires a constant data connection, so smartphones are recommended over tablets. Be sure to meet up with your local community to maximize your fun. “When I was going through a rough time in life, I had to stop playing for a few consecutive months,” UA alumna Evy Lizárraga said. “That was difficult to do, but my Ingress friends are the ones that helped me out of it without me even playing. They are true friends that I’ve gained from this game.” COURTESY OF DANIELA RIOJAS
