than nine billion by 2050. It also suggests that much of the population will live in areas of food scarcity. Wing and his team of researchers, along with other scientists, have pondered how to grow enough food to feed the world’s population and prevent the host of health and socioeconomic problems correlated with hunger and lack of proper nutrition. Wing and his team are no strangers to this field of research. His group previously developed physical maps for Asian rice that were donated to the Rice Genome Annotation Project. The research

The FIJI fraternity house, located on First Street, previously occupied by the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, is being converted into a residence hall that will be known as Rawls/Eller Lodge and will house 64 UA students beginning the upcoming fall semester. The UA FIJI chapter is being closed until international leaders have decided whether or not to officially revoke the fraternity’s charter, Bill Martin, executive director of Phi Gamma Delta, told local news outlets on Tuesday. Johanne Ives, director of Fraternity and Sorority Programs, said that FIJI’s interim suspension status has not changed with the UA. There has been no announcement yet from the international office of a final decision regarding FIJI’s status. The corporation that is financially responsible for the house most likely decided to partner with UA Residence Life, rather than the UA chapter of FIJI, to ensure the house would be occupied in the upcoming year, Ives said. “Even if the university chooses to change that interim action from suspension … [the corporation is] not interested in moving forward with this current group of collegiate members that was going to move into the house,” Ives said. Jennifer Hiatt, executive director of UA Residence Life, said that Residence Life has been in talks with FIJI for the past few weeks about converting the house into a residence hall after the fraternity was placed under interim suspension. Hiatt said the ongoing investigation is related to the fraternity’s choice to leave

Rice genome project aims to feed BY EMILEE HOOPES

Arizona Summer Wildcat

An international team of researchers led by the UA has sequenced the complete genome of African rice. The genetic information produced will allow scientists to further understand the growing patterns of the species, as well as to create new rice varieties that will withstand environmental stressors and ultimately help eliminate global hunger challenges. Rod Wing, director of the Arizona Genomics Institute and member of the UA’s BIO5 Institute, helped lead the cause.

Wing’s research group specializes in developing “physical maps,” or tools that provide scientists and agriculturalists the knowledge to understand the structure of the genome. According to Wing, rice will play a key role in helping solve the “nine billion people question.” “Rice feeds half of the world, and it’s half of the world that is going to double in 20 or 30 years,” Wing said when asked about the inspiration behind his biology project. “The nine billion people question” consists of predictions suggesting the world’s population will increase to more

Sun Tran contract dispute ends, bus strike avoided BY Nicholas Peppe

Arizona Summer Wildcat

After days of labor negotiations, Sun Tran officials and representatives of Teamsters Local 104 have officially announced a new one-year contract on Thursday. With the possibility of a worker strike looming, affiliates of both parties met over the span of multiple days to work out a new contract and avoid the possibility of union members authorizing a work stoppage. Compensation disputes are allegedly what triggered the labor union to take action. According to a press release, Sun Tran reportedly requested a raise for its employees as well as a certain package of benefits. The resulting negotiation period caused a lot of uncertainty for Sun Tran riders who, in the event of a strike, would have been urged to start finding alternative means of transportation. The contract extension was set to expire at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday and if an agreement was still not reached at that time, union members may have authorized a work stoppage the following day. “We continue to be hopeful an agreement can be reached prior to the expiration of the contract extension,” said Kate Riley, general manager of Sun Tran. “We encourage riders to plan accordingly and identify potential transportation alternatives in case a service disruption is called.” Sun Tran was prepared to offer limited service along select routes throughout the week if an agreement was not met, as well as limited weekday service on many of the routes. Luckily for Sun Tran passengers, a tentative agreement was met on Wednesday in which

After days of negotiations, Sun Tran and Teamsters Local 104 labor union have reached an agreement and renewed a one-year contract on Thursday, narrowly avoiding a strike. Disputes originated from Sun Tran's requests for raises and changes to benefits, causing Teamsters to engage in negotiations.

both sides were in compliance to briefly extend the current contract to allow the members the opportunity to vote on the final contract proposal. On Thursday, both parties agreed on a new contract, which stayed within the adopted 2015 budget and was ratified with a vote of 292 to 93. Sun Tran has agreed to a $1 million package that includes one-time wage adjustment for all bargaining unit employees who have been employed longer than six months and are not in the top rate wage level. The plan also includes a one-time wage adjustment for individuals at the top rate of 40 cents on Aug. 1, 2014 and an additional 10 cents on Feb. 1,

2015. Top rate mechanics would earn $22.66 per hour and drivers would earn $19.22 per hour by Feb. 1, 2015, which is an improved rate. The new contract also states that Sun Tran will continue to contribute 100 percent of monthly health and welfare premiums for bargaining unit employees and their dependents and raise hourly contributions to the Teamster pension fund by 1 percent.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey toured through Southern Arizona on Tuesday as the campaign for the Republican nomination for Arizona governor enters its final weeks. The Ducey campaign made stops in Nogales to meet with law enforcement officials in the ArizonaMexico border area and in Tucson at Hotrods Old Vail, where the Arizona state treasurer was joined by State Sen. Al Melvin (R-District 11) and former Republican State Sen. Frank Antenori for a meetand-greet with voters. Melvin said he supported Ducey’s conservative credentials in the race for governor. Melvin was previously in the running for the Republican nomination for governor before dropping out and endorsing Ducey. “I believe he’s got the leadership, the vision and the integrity to keep our state red and keep it as far away from blue or purple as we can make it,” Melvin said. Ducey spoke with those in attendance and responded to their questions on topics from immigration to the Affordable Care Act to lay out his positions. He also spoke of his qualifications with his history of work in the private sector and building up Cold Stone Creamery. “I built a company, now I want to shrink a government and grow an economy,” he said. Ducey said he wants to get rid of unnecessary taxes and regulations and to ultimately eliminate the state income tax.

He also focused on immigration and border issues and said President Barack Obama has failed Arizona in his duty to protect the southern border, calling it a national security issue as well as a criminal one. “I believe it’s the first job of our federal government to protect its citizens,” Ducey said. “Our Tucson sector is wide open and unprotected.” Ducey touted his recent endorsement from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio,who is known for his tough stance on illegal immigration. He has also been endorsed by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Ducey also addressed concerns over rising tuition costs at the state’s public universities. He praised the three state universities – the UA, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University – but added that Arizona has less choice than other states when it comes to higher education. “I want to make sure we get these costs under control so these kids have some idea what their budget will be for four or five years as they get their education,” he said. “I think there’s a way we can do that from state government to lock in those costs.” Ducey later responded to criticism he has received

on the campaign trail in recent days regarding the sale of Cold Stone Creamery and his failure to appear at a candidate forum at Pima Community College – West Campus on July 30. Ducey said he had a conflict and could not attend the debate. He added that he has been in Pima County more than any other candidate during the campaign with an average of twice a month. Scott Smith, mayor of Mesa and a Republican gubernatorial opponent, called out Ducey at the July 30 debate for not answering questions over Cold Stone Creamery and not appearing with the other candidates. Antenori said Ducey’s opponents were trying to spread rumors about the candidate and said they were trying to buy the governor’s seat. “They want to buy a governor,” he said. “They want to own the ninth floor [of the Arizona Capitol building], and the last thing you want is to allow one of those folks to get into the ninth floor.” Ducey is running close in the polls with former GoDaddy executive Christine Jones in a crowded Republican primary field. The primary election is set for Aug. 26, and early voting is underway to see who will face likely Democratic nominee Fred DuVal. ethan mcsweeney/Arizona Summer Wildcat

2014 best year for tech commercialization BY Meredith Morrissey Arizona Summer Wildcat

This past year was the UA’s most successful fiscal year yet for technology commercialization due to the efforts of Tech Launch Arizona. TLA is the unit responsible for advancing UA discoveries made by faculty and students into inventions and intellectual property. According to a press release from the TLA office, fiscal year 2014 was TLA’s first full year of operation with a complete team, new programs and procedures in place. The press release listed some of this year’s notable accomplishments, which included 39 exclusive licenses and options executed, 167 patents filed, 24 patents issued, 188 invention disclosures received from faculty inventors and 11 startup companies created. The UA formed TLA in 2013 by fusing three separate functions — technology transfer, tech parks and corporate and business relations — and implementing new venture development as a fourth function. TLA modeled some of its strategies after the practices of top commercialization universities and made a concerted effort to hire experts in a range of fields. “We’ve hired outstanding

campus. Though there was no available oncampus housing, residence life did reach out to the members of FIJI and offered them help finding a place to live, Hiatt said. The members of FIJI who were living in the house have had no trouble quickly finding off-campus housing, she said. Residence Life has sent an email to all students waiting on on-campus housing, informing them of the new space, Hiatt said. All students have an equal opportunity to apply to live in the space, she said. UA officials placed FIJI under interim suspension following allegations from the University of Arizona Police Department’s investigation into the death of Michael Anderson, 19, who fell to his death in April

“I think that the people that are here now are more talented and prepared to do this,” said Victor Hruby, regents professor of chemistry and biochemistry. Hruby said the university’s current focus on technological commercialization has many benefits, including increased publicity, as well as the possibility of significant societal

and economic impacts. “Over a long period of time these companies can grow into something really substantial and create jobs and improve quality of life for people in our community,” said Paul Tumarkin, TLA marketing and communications manager. Allen said he predicts the UA’s reputation will benefit as a result.

“Our vision for TLA is for the University of Arizona to become one of the top universities related to technological commercialization,” Allen said. He added that he thinks the UA now ranks among the top 25 universities for technological commercialization. According to Tumarkin, there are a variety of ways students can get involved in TLA, such as connecting with TLA Ambassadors, student staff who help students with ideas for businesses or inventions network and connect to community resources. Students with entrepreneurial inclinations also have the option of attending pitch days where they have the opportunity to present their business ideas to a panel of experts. TLA also has a student fellows program geared toward law students with a technical, engineering or medical background that allows them to assist with market research and evaluating new technologies. Students interested in learning more about commercialization can attend TLA workshops.

while intoxicated. Following his death, UAPD investigated the fraternity to see if Anderson was in attendance of an unregistered party at the house the night before his death. During this investigation, UAPD found evidence of alcohol being served to minors, drug use in the house and attempts to interfere with the police investigation. The Dean of Students Office determined that FIJI posed a “substantial risk to the university community.” Kendal Washington White, associate vice president of student affairs and dean of students, previously said she expects the DOS to make a decision on the status of FIJI’s recognition before the beginning of the fall semester. rebecca marie sasnett/Arizona Summer Wildcat

A man staying nearby for a UA summer program had entered the laundry room smelling of alcohol and urine and had begun yelling insults at those present. He continued cursing before Pima residents managed to get the man out of the building. However, the man re-entered the building and entered the kitchen, knocking over tables and chairs and throwing dishes and glasses on the floor before leaving. Officers later located the man identified by witnesses. He told UAPD officers he had drank a few beers and a shot of Hennessey while at a bar. UAPD cited the man and released him to a UA faculty member who advised the man that the incident was a violation of a no-alcohol policy of the summer program. The man was removed from the program.

Buddy Holly prescription glasses are less prevalent among the Southwestern states due to the necessity of sunglasses for much of the year. One of the Southwest Hipster’s most iconic accessories are his vintage, or at least vintagestyle, “sunnies.” The Hipster of the Southwest is often an outdoorsman first. Cycling, rock climbing, hiking and slack-lining are common pastimes enjoyed by the hipsters of the region, many of whom have beards as a symbol of their outdoorsmanship. While many hipsters of various other geographic regions claim to be active

participants in the same activities, the Southwest Hipster is situated near the jagged American Rockies, considering the Appalachians suitable only for Polaroid viewfinders. Board games, especially uncommon titles such as “Settlers of Catan,” are also popular amongst the hipsters of the region, especially for married couples choosing to forgo the wine tastings and sports-viewing parties of their less-alternative peers. The American Southwest is a region rich in history and culture, containing a burgeoning art scene inspired by its natural beauty, Native American art, Latin American influences and

From “New ID law could prove inconvenient for over-21 students” (by Nicholas Peppe, August 6) This law is absolutely ridiculous. It does not matter what direction someone’s ID is in - people can give away any of their ID’s to friends to use as fakes. A good way to curb the amount of underages getting into bars is to request multiple forms of identification when the picture looks like it may not match.

The hipster of the region has assimilated into this niche, allowing the observer to clearly distinguish the Southwest Hipster from the hipsters of other regions such as the Pacific Northwest or Tennessee. The Southwest Hipster is specifically adapted to the environment it inhabits, and being able to recognize these distinguishing characteristics is just the beginning of further research into this unique culture.

about it. Regardless of the strength of your argument, hiding it behind aggressive rhetoric will only serve to upset those that you are trying to convince and make your point harder to understand. And if you can’t make your point without attacking others, perhaps your point needs some work. The best way to convince people is by engaging in civil discourse.

Former Wildcat QB Matt Scott throwing for preseason TD after vomiting on field We know, we know, it’s just the preseason. Still, way to bear down, Matt. What’s a little nausea when you’ve got a job to do? Obama’s airlift and airstrikes to assist persecuted Yazidi civilians in Iraq Helping out an isolated religious minority group survive an onslaught by Islamist militants is a worthy humanitarian cause, as long as the president is careful to avoid getting us permanently dragged into another longterm conflict in the Middle East.

People who call Tucson the “Dirty T” It’s bad enough that our official Old Pueblo nickname calls us “old,” but with the new People who jaywalk across major Tucson nickname, Tucson has to be labeled as “dirty,” streets too? What’s next, “Pothole Place?” It’s tough to be driving down Campbell or First Avenue and have to slam on your breaks because someone is wandering across the road. We know it’s hot, we know the distance between crosswalks are far, but taking the time to cross the street properly could prevent a serious or fatal accident.

Slew of candidates in the running to replace Carey

NCAA ruling gives leeway to Power 5


Arizona Summer Wildcat

Several running backs are trying to fill the void left by Arizona football all-time leading rusher Ka’Deem Carey’s early departure for the NFL. Carey scored 20 touchdowns and rushed for 1,885 yards last season, despite missing the season opener against FCS opponent NAU. The Wildcats not only lost Carey, but also backup running back Daniel Jenkins, who ran for 411 yards. The 2014 crop of running backs have impressed the coaches, though. “I love the way the guys are working,” said Calvin Magee, associate head coach, cooffensive coordinator and running backs coach. “They focus and they concentrate, and they try to improve every day and that’s all you can ask for.” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said he has been impressed with redshirt senior Adonis Smith, freshman Jonathan Haden, freshman Nick Wilson, redshirt senior Terris JonesGrigsby, redshirt junior Jared Baker and redshirt freshman Zach Green. “We don’t have a Ka’Deem, which everybody knows, but we got a lot of bodies there and I think we’re going to be good,” Rodriguez said. Smith, who has also played for Northwestern and UNLV,

ARIZONA REDSHIRT FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK Anu Solomon (12) hands off the ball to Arizona redshirt senior running back Terris Jones-Grigsby (24) during football practice on Aug. 2 at Arizona Stadium. Jones-Grigsby is among a handful of running backs looking to become the starter.

and Jones-Grigsby are the oldest running backs as fifth-year seniors. “I’m the veteran, so they’re going to expect that from me, but now I’m just trying to take it dayby-day,” Jones-Grigsby said. “I know I’ve got big shoes to fill in [for] Ka’Deem, so I’m just ready to take on that role.” Jones-Grigsby is the younger brother of former UA star running back Nic Grigsby. “Terris is solid, Terris just does everything solid,” Magee said. “He’s a good example for the young kids that are watching him.”


Speaking of younger players, Magee said he’s been impressed with the freshmen running backs, like Wilson and Haden. “That’s been very exciting to watch,” he said. “They kind of are what we thought they were coming in, so to get them out here and get them flying around is good. They’re learning pretty quick and making some plays so it’s exciting to see.” Magee said the offense is tough to learn because of its fast pace and it’s hard for freshmen to learn pass protection. Freshmen and other

newcomers are not available for comment until media day next week. Magee said Wilson is a complete back and is learning everything right now. “He’s big-eyed right now,” Magee said. “He’s trying to learn and really absorbing everything, but he’s a strong runner with some good quickness and some decent speed. But he’s a puppy and has a lot to learn. He and Haden are both doing extremely well.” Baker is the only returning back

inally a little bit of sanity has come to the NCAA. Last week, the NCAA Division I board of directors voted to give the Power Five Conferences (Pac-12, Big 12, Big Ten, ACC and SEC) some autonomy. This paves the way for the Power Five to raise scholarships to the “full cost of attendance” and compensate them further. “I think it’s going to be great,” Arizona football head coach Rich Rodriguez said. “We’re going to be able to feed our guys and put a little more money in their pocket. I’ve been an advocate for this for three years. I think it’s great for their quality of life.” The big schools have been in favor of this for a while, but the smaller schools in Division I voted it down because they can’t afford it. Autonomy saves the Power Five from potentially splitting off from DI or the NCAA itself and acknowledges that the big guys are almost as different

Newman joins Cape Cod greats with hitting record


ARIZONA SOPHOMORE INFIELDER Kevin Newman safely makes it to second base during Arizona's 6-0 win against Alcorn State at Hi Corbett Field on Feb. 22. Newman became the first person ever to lead the Cape Cod League in batting average in consecutive seasons.

This year, he returned to hit for a .380 (46-for-121) through the Cape Cod Baseball League, accomplishing something that hasn’t been done before in the league’s average with seven doubles, 20 RBIs and 20 runs scored over 31 regular season games.

UA soccer, Amato look to improve BY james kelley

Arizona Summer Wildcat

Arizona soccer will kick off the 2014-15 UA sports schedule looking to improve on one of the school’s best seasons ever. In 2013, head coach Tony Amato’s first season, the Wildcats went 9-7-4, 4-6-1 in the Pac-12. Last season, Arizona opened by going undefeated through seven games, the best start in school history. “It’s a process," Amato said. "We’re definitely looking to improve one step at a time and having some success last year definitely helps the buy-in factor." The Wildcats begin the season with a friendly exhibition against New Mexico on Saturday at 7 p.m. at home before starting the regular season on Aug. 22 at Florida International and hosting their home opener on Aug. 28 against NAU. “I’m excited we have our first game coming up,” senior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman said. “I’m just really looking forward to the season.” The Wildcats’ four Pac-12 wins last season were Arizona’s second best ever. Arizona went 1-16-2 in 2011 and before last season only had winning records in 2004 (15-6-0), when the Wildcats made it to the NCAA tournament for the first time and 2005 (11-8-3), when they made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Senior forward Alexandra Doller said the Wildcats can keep up the momentum by reminding themselves how hard they worked last year and that they’re trying to build something. “You can only go up from a season like that,” Kaufman said. “We made a lot of improvements

from the years before, and you could really only go up from what we did last year.” The Wildcats lost Jazmin Ponce, who led the team in points with 25 and was first team All-Pac-12, but return four of their top five 2013 scorers. Arizona returns Doller, who was second on the team with 17 points, junior forward Kaitlyn Lopez and sophomore midfielder Lexe Selman, who each had 11 points and sophomore midfielder Jaden DeGracie, who had 10. College Sports Madness named

DeGracie second team Pac-12. Kaufman played in 20 of the Wildcats’ 21 games last year, playing 1,768 minutes, recording a 1.17 goals against average and going 8-7-4 with five shut outs. Kaufman, who transferred from Texas Tech after her freshman season, said the program is “much better” than when she arrived and is more professional. “We have our core values which we base our program around and everybody follows them and it just creates a better team environment,”

she said. Arizona welcomes 12 newcomers, 11 freshmen and one transfer. “They’re all awesome so far,” Kaufman said. “There’s a lot of them, so it’s like a whole new team, but they’re awesome and fitting in great and we’re glad to have them.” Amato said 12 players is a bit bigger than normal recruiting classes; some schools have classes as small as four players. “We’re at a phase where we want to bring in closer to 10,” Amato said. “So 10-12 is definitely a larger number of new players and we think that’s what we need right now on our team.” Amato said he was impressed with how last year’s freshmen performed in the spring practices and exhibitions, especially sophomore forward Haley Silverberg and sophomore midfielder Laura Pimienta. “There are players all across the board that are a little bit stronger, have a little bit of belief, and that goes a long way,” Amato said. Amato said the Wildcats play “very good” teams in Florida, FIU and Florida Gulf Coast, before facing the best team in the SEC in 2013, Texas A&M, and NCAA tournament regular Oklahoma State at the Sun Devil Desert Classic, which will get the Wildcats ready for Pac-12 play. After the Florida trip, the Wildcats don’t leave the state again until Oct. 10 and will play seven home games. “We’re here most of the time, which is nice," Doller said. "[We have] a lot of home games.”

“Everyone’s got their hand out.” With the opening of the Bitcoin ATM, businesses may be incentivized to start accepting Bitcoin in the future and Javelin Investments is there to help smooth the transition. “These smaller places that are local to Tucson and have a younger following are prime candidates to accept it,” Williams said. “Lots of these places are already doing their transactions on a tablet or phone and we could set these people up to accept Bitcoin very quickly.” There are hundreds of other crypto-currencies out their beyond Bitcoin that are making the world a better place. Dogecoin, a crypto-currency branded with a picture of a shiba inu from a popular Internet meme, has a strong community that has sponsored numerous charities. They even sponsored the Jamaica’s Olympic bobsled team and a Nascar. “In the future we might take other crypto-currencies,” Oldfather said. “Maybe if the price of Darkcoin is shooting up we’ll give you a 5 percent discount if you pay with Darkcoin.” With all of this innovation, many governments around the world have been relatively quiet about crypto-currencies. In May, the IRS released guidelines that classify cryptocurrencies as property, which is a step closer towards wider adoption and use. “I believe that these new disruptive technologies is maybe our chance to get our act together,” Oldfather said. “It’s the business people in my position that need to help people out.” — Follow Patrick O'Connor @tachyzoite

Kid Ink comes to the Rialto BY christianna silva

Arizona Summer Wildcat

School starts in two weeks, and many Wildcats are already here in Tucson. Without piles of homework or any classes to study for, we find ourselves searching for a fun night — something that a Kid Ink concert promises. He will be performing at The Rialto Theatre on Thursday Kid Ink took his name for his famously tattooed body. He began his career working on his production skills behind the control board for artists such as Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sean Kingston. He broke out onto the music scene in 2010 with his mixtape Crash Landing and has worked his way up to become one of the top hip-hop artists of today. He uses his word play, music and beats creatively to create an experience that is true to only him. XXL Mag calls Kid Ink’s live performances “unpredictable and entertaining.” “I remember when Kid Ink was doing mix tapes,” said Kaeli Johnson, a communication junior. “I think it’s really incredible how he flawlessly transitions from that into this hugely

famous rapper. He really came from some no name guy all the way to the top. He takes a lot of risks with his songs and I think that’s really what attracts his listeners to him.” TeeFLii, Kennedys, Diamante, Colt and Young Hectic/Young Mac will be opening for Kid Ink. TeeFLii writes and composes all his own music and, according to the Rialto, is an experience all of his own, calling his genre “FLii&B” as opposed to R&B. With so many incredible artists from the R&B and rap world jamming along

before Kid Ink pops his tattooed head out from behind backstage, it won’t be a surprise when fans are pumped and prepared for his tunes. Rap shows tend to attract large audiences because these concerts are genuinely full of fun. The bass bounces off your ears and into your feet, causing almost incoherent and inescapable dance moves to flow out. It isn’t hard to spot fans as they begin to bounce to and fro to the beat of the music. Furthermore, concerts of this genre being held at the Rialto tend to cause even more of a commotion. The standing arena on the bottom floor of the theater creates an aura that is known to be virtually inescapable, made even more incredible with musicians who use the bass and beats to their advantage like Kid Ink. Just weeks before school kicks off, Kid Ink will be using his rap/hip-hop style that promises an exciting show to kick off the school year with. Doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are between $25 and $35. — Follow Christianna Silva @DailyWildcat

Bitcoin becoming more tangible BY PATRICK O'CONNOR

Arizona Summer Wildcat

San Francisco, Tokyo, Singapore, London, Tucson — what do these cities have in common? They are some of the first cities to have Bitcoin ATMs, a new payment system that has the potential to change the way we handle finances. The first Bitcoin ATM in Arizona opened late July at Bookmans Entertainment Exchange on Ina Road. Bitcoin is known as a crypto-currency. It has no physical form and instead exists entirely online as a virtual currency. If you have bitcoins, then you have a program on your computer known as a wallet. Each wallet has a unique address associated with it to send and receive bitcoins. Much like cash, transactions with Bitcoin are extremely fast, anonymous and permanent. With Bitcoin, you can buy furniture from, computers from Dell, satellite TV from Dish Network, flowers from or a flight from airBaltic. Local Tucson businesses are accepting Bitcoin as well. Chaffin’s Diner on Broadway Boulevard will serve you a delicious breakfast in exchange for Bitcoin and you can grab a quick coffee downtown at Cartel Coffee Lab and pay with Bitcoin. Very soon, Bookmans


BOOKMANS ON INA ROAD is the first location in Arizona to start accepting Bitcoin, an online crypto-currency. Bitcoin is a new way to buy items online.

Entertainment Exchange will also accept Bitcoin. “I’ve always liked to use the engine of Bookmans to see where the future goes and hopefully to help it along,” said Bob

Oldfather, owner of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange. Until recently, Bitcoin was very difficult for the average Tucson resident to get a hold of. One avenue was to purchase it online through an exchange, which can take weeks to verify banking information, just like day trading. Now you can walk into Bookmans on Ina Road and easily purchase some. In the near future, Tucson may be hosting even more of these ATMs. “Eventually we’d like to add more ATMs at other locations,” said Brian Williams, owner of Javelin Investments, the company that owns and maintains the Bitcoin ATM. Bitcoin offers great advantages over traditional payment systems. Like cash, giving bitcoins to someone is fast and anonymous, but Bitcoin takes that a step further. Sending twenty dollars to your friend for their birthday would normally take days and you risk it getting lost in the postal system. With Bitcoin, it arrives quickly and securely. It even crosses international borders. Sending money overseas is usually expensive due to high fees, but with Bitcoin you only need to pay a fraction of a cent to have your transaction verified. “Every time I take a credit card there’s a charge, every time I deposit it in the bank, there’s a charge,” Oldfather said.


Summer movie showdown: Three enter, only one leaves BY ALEX GUYTON

Arizona Summer Wildcat

This week, there is a smorgasbord of films to cover. In lieu of doing a standard review of a single film, these three films — “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle,” (hereby referred to as “TMNT”), “Into the Storm ”and “Boyhood” — which have basically nothing in common, will be pitted against each other in a battle royale. It’s the last gasp of summer — which of these movies will hold its head high heading into the fall, and which will be left to swelter and die in the dog days of Tucson heat?



Megan Fox as April O’Neil in “TMNT.” You may be thinking to yourself, “Now, wait a hot second, shouldn’t the characters that the movie is named after be counted as the heroes?” Well, that’s what you’d hope, since the turtles and their humor are the most enjoyable part of the movie. However, we are with O’Neil, a reporter that’s trying to break out of the leagues of

fluff-piece journalism, from beginning to end. Therefore, Fox is the anchor of the film. If that sounds a little dubious to you, that’s because it is. She does a fair job, honestly, but there are times when she’ll let out a terror-filled scream so fake you can just imagine the director saying “action” a few seconds prior. Ellar Coltrane as Mason in “Boyhood.” For those unfamiliar with the premise of “Boyhood,” director Richard Linklater filmed the fictional life of Mason for a couple of weeks a year over the course of 12 years. The same actors (Lorelei Linklater as sister, Ethan Hawke as father, Patricia Arquette as mother) portrayed Mason and his family, meaning the passage of time was completely organic. A year in actual life was a year in “Boyhood.” While makeup, special effects and different actors always show age in film, there’s something beautiful about Coltrane literally growing up before our eyes. Richard Armitrage as Gary Morris, Sarah Wayne Callies as Allison Stone, Matt Walsh as Pete, Max Deacon as Donnie, Nathan


Kress as Trey in “Into the Storm.” The politically correct term for this amount of leads is an “ensemble cast,” but the actual correct term for this amount of leads, in the case of this movie, is “unwieldy and forgettable.” Winner: It’s not even close. “Boyhood.”
