Local students to apply for deferred action get help from lawyers, groups By Stephanie Casanova Arizona Summer Wildcat
With the help of local lawyers and organizations, some undocumented students have begun the process of applying for a temporary legal status in order to go to college. President Obama granted the defferred status to students who would qualify for the politically gridlocked DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors), which aims to give the students permanent residency. The temporary status will last two years, with the option to reapply, and students can apply starting Aug. 15.
Groups like Coalición de Derechos Humanos (The Human Rights Coalition) and Scholarships A-Z, as well as Margo Cowan, a lawyer at the Pima County Public Defender’s office, have been meeting with these students to ensure that they understand the qualifications and avoid scams. Cowan has been to Pueblo Magnet High School three times since Obama’s announcement granting deferred status to “DREAMers,” or undocumented students who have been in the country since before they were 16 years old, and are under the age of 31. The status allows students to remain in the U.S. for two years to attend
college and can be renewed. During Cowan’s visits to the school, she provided parents and students with information about the qualifications for the deferred status and answered questions about various situations. “We have an obligation to serve our community and particularly as lawyers we have an obligation to reach out and organize services for people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them,” Cowan said. Other lawyers who have partnered with Cowan have signed a representation form
Deferred Action status requirements: — Came to the U.S. under the age of 16 — Has continuously resided in the U.S. for at least five years before June 15 and was present in the U.S. on June 15 — Is currently in school, has graduated from high school, obtained a GED or is an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States — Has not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses or otherwise posses a threat to national security or public safety — Is under the age of 31 — A fee of $465 is also required to pay for the work permit and background check.

UA club provides engineering solutions to villages abroad By Kyle Mittan Arizona Summer Wildcat
Few clubs on campus have to deal with diseases and terrorist organizations, but for members of the UA’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders, issues such as these are worth the risk. The chapter, which was formed in 2005, just three years after the organization was officially established nationwide, uses engineering to improve water infrastructure for villages in developing areas. Local members have traveled to Ghana, Mali and Bolivia to provide solutions to the local communities, according to Chelsea Kestler, a hydrology senior and the club’s project manager. Connecting with communities in other countries is done at the organization’s national level. Chapters then bid for each project by explaining their skillsets and qualifications, and how they can solve a particular issue in a given location. Once a chapter takes on a project, the commitment lasts five years, Kestler said. The chapter’s latest project in Marquirivi, Bolivia, began last fall, and aims to address the area’s poor plumbing system and provide locals with showers and latrines. Several club members visited the village for two weeks at the beginning of the summer to test and survey the area as part of the project’s first phase. Currently, the group is designing

the solution they plan to implement, and will return in about a year to construct and install it. Past projects have included a trip to Mafi Zongo, Ghana in 2005 to improve the area’s
water treatment and distribution, according to Patrick Mette, a former club officer and environmental engineering graduate student. The project served about 30 communities and 10,000 people total.
Despite the club’s goal to remain involved with each project for five years, some projects get cut short for security reasons, as was the case for the club’s rainwater harvesting project in Mandoli, Mali, where a terrorist organization arrived during the design phase, preventing any further travels to the area. “Once the Taliban show up, there’s not a lot you can about that,” Kestler said. Mette later confirmed that it had been Al-Qaeda. Unrelated to the security dangers, club members said that jumping into the cultures of a developing country can be a nervewracking and stressful experience, though it can vary from person to person. “Some people have done it before and are really adventurous and they can just hop right into a new place that they’ve never been and feel comfortable,” Mette said. Kestler added that much of the time spent abroad is used to build a trusting relationship with the community the club is working in, which is a necessary but often difficult aspect. “We’re trying not to just be engineers,” Mette added. “We’re also trying to act as, I guess, ambassadors, and develop a relationship with the communities.” While the club’s primary focus is developing infrastructure in other countries, they stay busy while they’re at home,

agreeing to represent each of these students if they get detained by Border Patrol or Immigration and Customs Enforcement for being undocumented. Cowan is not charging any legal fees for her work or representation, although students do have to pay their own filing fees, she said. Cowan will be hosting a fourth information session at Pueblo High Magnet School on Aug. 13 where students will be able to take their necessary documents or ask her questions about the process. According to a study from the Immigration Policy Center of the American Immigration Council entitled “Who and Where the DREAMers Are,” more than 50,000 Arizona students will benefit from the Obama Administration’s Deferred Action Initiative. Of these students, 65 percent are immediate beneficiaries, or students who are within the qualifying age group, and 35 percent are future beneficiaries, not yet 15 years old. “These students are the future of our country,” Cowan said. “They are for all intents and purposes U.S. citizens except the paper.” Scholarships A-Z, an organization that assists students in finding scholarships regardless of their immigration status, has also been helping students who are applying for the deferred action initiative. The students in the organization focus on educating DREAMers about how to prepare for the application process and how to avoid scams from notaries and lawyers. “There are so many scams out there,” said Matt Matera, director and co-founder of Scholarships A-Z. “There’ll be notarios (notaries) or lawyers who are saying they know what they’re doing and … they’re charging folks upwards of $5,000.” There are many programs in the community that are helping students for little to no cost according to Matera. Matera, who is also a UA graduate student studying higher education, helped create Scholarships A-Z in May 2009 because he noticed many laws and policies that made higher education more expensive for undocumented students, he

said. Proposition 300, a law in Arizona that requires students to prove legal residency in order to pay in-state tuition, has made it difficult for undocumented students to afford college. “They blocked access because there’s a price tag associated with universities and that price tag continues to increase while aid for all students … continues to decrease.” Daniela Nada, a co-director of Scholarships A-Z’s student action committee, was introduced to the organization in January. She was awarded a scholarship to help her with her first semester at Pima Community College, but noticed that her parents were struggling to pay for the remainder of her education. When she met Ana Valenzuela, Scholarships A-Z’s other co-founder, Nada said she realized that there are resources for undocumented students to continue with their education. She wanted to teach other students that they can stay in school and find ways to pay for it, she said, and became involved with the program. Nada said she is happy that she’ll be able to apply for deferred status and legally get a job in the states but she believes more should be done. The goal is to obtain citizenship, which is what the DREAM act would accomplish if it were passed.
“I’m still stuck here … I cannot leave this country,” she said. “I’m just helping the economy … I want to have freedom like those who are U.S. citizens.” When she was 9 years old, Nada got in a car with her family and was told they were going on vacation, she said. This vacation became a permanent stay in the states. Nada said she realized in eighth grade that things would be harder for her after high school. While a two-year legalization program is a good start to having rights in this country, Nada said she wishes she could go visit her family in Mexico and be able to re-enter the U.S. Taking five classes this semester, Nada said she hopes to have her associate’s degree next May and is looking to transfer to a university in New Mexico. Matera believes policies like Proposition 300 make students feel unwelcome in Arizona universities and causes students such as Nada to move elsewhere to continue their education. “If we miss out on those students because they decide to move somewhere, then our whole state’s economy has missed out on that talent,” Matera said. “And that’s just something that I’m not willing to let happen and I don’t think anybody else should either.”

UA health center earns $8.3M grant to go to facilities, research
Arizona Summer Wildcat â€˘ 3
By Isaac Cox Arizona Summer Wildcat
The Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center located within the College of Pharmacy received $8.3 million in grant funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to expand their facilities in an effort to further the centerâ€™s research. The center, which studies the effects of environmental factors on human health, such as exposure to arsenic, ultraviolet rays and other underlying factors that contribute to diseases, tied for first with New York University out of 10 centers in a competitive decision-making process. The funds will be distributed in annual installments for the next five years. Serrine Lau, the centerâ€™s director and professor in the College of Pharmacy who led the effort to help get the funding, said its success with getting the funding came from its ability to perform research unmatched by other centers throughout the nation. â€œA center like this really can bring forth an unparallel interactive force to pull investigators together,â€? Lau said. â€œItâ€™s so advantageous to have this kind of setup. We all can work together to investigate unknown research that impacts the environmental health.â€? A large portion of the grant funding will be given to the UAâ€™s facilities, according to Lau. The center has implemented initiatives to support and force interactive research for multiple colleges and departments. The funds are given to establish infrastructure for state-of-the-art facilities in research enterprises such as the cellular imaging facility core, genomics facility core, proteomics facility core and the integrated health sciences facility core. Using the funds to improve in these areas will address several issues, including providing the right equipment to do

Choose farmers markets instead of big name stores to support local economy, environment Michael Carolin Arizona Summer Wildcat
hopping at Walmart might save money, but there’s a price to pay. In this sluggish economic recovery, Walmart and other major supermarkets are certainly more appealing to American consumers than local retail stores. There’s one on nearly every corner and most of the time you won’t find a store with cheaper prices. Convenience is everything and Walmart has it. While Walmart’s quest to make low prices presses on, many local farmers who once thrived are suffering the consequences. Walmart stocks its shelves using a method called conventional farming. This method uses synthetic chemicals to increase plant growth, making it difficult for organic farms to keep up. According to Aaron Cameron, a Tucson farmer who owns Elderberry Edibles with his wife Jenna Vallier, conventional farming “has stripped America of most of its farmers except factory farmers.” Vallier added that big box stores take away the chance that small organic farms can operate or exist.
Local farmers aren’t the only ones who face negative repercussions. Small businesses take a hit as well. According to a 2009 study by Loyola University Chicago’s Urban Research and Learning Center, the opening of a single Chicago Walmart in 2006 forced 82 businesses in the adjacent area to shut down in just two years. By choosing to shop at massive stores instead of local businesses, we have granted these national chains free reign to tank local economies, kill jobs and leave the surviving stores struggling. According to research by the Institute for the Study of Labor, Walmart store openings cause three people to lose their jobs for every two people they hire. Another study by the Mississippi University Extension Service found that small supermarkets and discount variety stores who didn’t go out of business suffered sales declines of 10 to 40 percent where new Walmarts opened. On top of it all, most of the money that Walmart and other chain stores produce isn’t kept in the local economy — it’s shipped away. According to a 2004 study by Civic Economics, an economic analysis consultancy, only $43 for every $100 of consumer spending at chain stores remains in the same city. Local businesses, on the other hand, retain $68 in the local economy. “Keeping our resources local is really
important because it recycles instead of mines,” Vallier said. “It builds community.” Some communities have taken note of Walmart’s black hole effect on their economies and protested new store openings. In June, for example, thousands of citizens in Los Angeles, Calif. marched against the opening of a Walmart in a downtown neighborhood. Similar protests have surfaced in other cities. Instead of buying our food at massive retail stores like Walmart, we should bring our money to local retail stores and farmers markets to help boost the economy and support small organic farms. Economic perks aren’t the only advantage, as both our soil and health benefit when we choose to avoid big box stores and their conventional farming methods. “If crops are made available in huge quantities at once,” Vallier said, then “they’re not grown in a natural or sustainable way.” Conventional farms are designed to quickly to produce enormous quantities of a narrow range of crops, but in the process, rip nutrients out of the soil. “To them (conventional farmers), soil means nothing. It’s just a medium to inject fertilizers and pesticides.” Conventional farms erode the once nutrient rich soil faster than the soil can be replenished. Then, when the ground is no longer fertile, factory farmers just move on to another plot. But conscientious local farming, like
what Cameron and Vallier practice, respects the environment by using sustainable and natural methods to grow food. “We are shooting for a farm that gives back to the soil,” Vallier said. “We’re not using more resources than our fair share.” Conventionally farmed food is just as nutrient-starved and chemically saturated as the soil that cultivates it. In addition, this food sometimes travels hundreds of miles before reaching store shelves. The food you buy at Walmart might be weeks or months old, Cameron said. Consequently, the food we eat from Walmart is not nearly as healthy as it should be. The nutrient levels in locally grown food are off the chart compared to what you get from big box stores, Cameron said. There are four farmers markets now open across town. So instead of picking up your next batch of groceries at your usual big box store, try out one of the local options. “We’re not doing anything new,” Vallier said. “We are only doing what was once done. We’ve all just forgot what that was.” —Michael Carolin is a journalism and creative writing junior. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.
Letter from the editor: the Wildcat goes mobile Miranda Butler Arizona Summer Wildcat
ast year, a UA student tweeted to the Daily Wildcat that carrying around a large crinkly newspaper made her feel like an old man. That student’s comical tweet raises a valid point about journalism today: the industry is changing. With the digital age upon us, more and more readers choose to get their news from online sources and social media sites. The Wildcat is proud to be one of the
few college papers that still releases a print product five days a week, and we plan to continue to do so. But for the past few years, we have also increased our online presence as we grow from a daily newspaper into a 24/7 news organization. Our Twitter account @DailyWildcat now has more than 4,000 followers, and we also reach thousands more people on Facebook each day. We’ve amped up our quantity of online exclusive articles, and last semester, we took advantage of this digital platform in new ways, such as using our website to release a musician’s new single. But we’re not satisfied to just stop there. We know there are thousands of additional students we could be reaching, and our paper isn’t complete without them. As the independent voice of the university, we
want to ensure that we’re covering an array of student interests, and incorporating many unique perspectives from UA’s diverse campus into our paper. Want to help us reach that goal? Whether it’s through the physical newspaper, our website, Facebook or Twitter, we’re always excited to interact with you. Next semester, we’re also adding one more option to our list of digital features that will make networking between the Wildcat and our readers simpler than ever. Facebook and Twitter are great, but it’s about time the Daily Wildcat released an app — so we’re getting with the program. In a little more than a month, you’ll be able to download a free Wildcat app for your iPad or iPhone. There will also be free HTML5 and native apps. These new digital features
will allow you to get instant updates from the Daily Wildcat and take us anywhere with you. We also hope that when you access the Wildcat on your phone or tablet, it’ll be easier to leave comments on our site and get in contact with us via social media and email. No matter how you choose to connect with us, we strive to be UA’s number one source for news, so we’re always open to your feedback about our paper and our online presence. Stay tuned as the school year begins for more updates about our app. —Miranda Butler is the editor in chief. She can be reached at email@example.com or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.

Online comments in response to “Mental illness on the rise in America”:
Many researchers point out it is not the mental illness alone that “causes” violence among mentally ill individuals, but you must consider other life factors like socioeconomic status and again substance abuse (which I think we agree on). And actually untreated bipolar disorder has more incidence of violent crime than does schizophrenia according to data. But the percentage of mentally ill who had substance issues make up a huge majority of those who were mentally ill that committed violent crime. The population risk for violence coming from someone with comorbid mental illness and substance abuse is 5 percent. If you eliminate

ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT • 5 mental illness alone, not considering comorbid mental illness with substance abuse, violent crime would only decrease by less than 5 percent. So if the statistics say only 4.3 percent of violent crime is committed by those with a mental illness, then one can see more violent crime is committed by those without a serious mental illness. But when you add substance abuse into the mix it changes everything. There is plenty of data to support the claim that mentally ill are no more likely, well let’s put it this way, just as likely to commit violent crime. All I’m saying is, according to statistics, mental illness makes up a very small portion of violent crime and the public overreacts about the risk factor of the mentally ill. It is true that someone who is untreated with a serious mental illness is more likely to commit crime, however, not as more likely as the public assumes. —Heather I would like to address violence and mental illness and respectfully somewhat disagree to what Heather in her comments has suggested or perhaps expand. It is true that having a mental illness does not mean one will be violent, however there is a higher risk of violence when mental illness goes untreated — particularly certain forms of schizophrenia and psychosis. But as she points out, substance abuse is more of a risk. My Psychology Today blog post cites stats and a meta-study examining the prevalence of mental illness. I myself have bipolar disorder and have been psychotic on several occasions. So I understand all too well the painful issue of stigma. What is important is that we are discussing it. —Victoria

Just a beer with dinner
A University of Arizona Police Department officer was driving south on Euclid Avenue on July 29 at 11:47 p.m. Traveling next to the officer’s squad car was a black Cadillac. The driver unexpectedly swerved his vehicle into the officer’s lane, and the officer had to brake quickly to avoid a collision. The officer immediately pulled the vehicle over on Sixth Street. The officer approached the vehicle and the non-UA affiliated male who was driving opened his door. The officer could smell alcohol coming from the vehicle. The male suspect was also sweaty and had watery, bloodshot eyes. The officer asked the suspect if his car window rolled down. The suspect mumbled, “The window is hard to roll down.” The officer then noticed a black pistol in the pocket of the door and told the suspect he was going to secure the gun. The officer placed the pistol in his patrol car and returned to the Cadillac to ask the suspect for his driver’s license. The officer informed the suspect that he could smell alcohol on him and the male suspect told the officer he had a beer earlier with his dinner. The officer asked the driver to step out of the vehicle to perform a sobriety test. Another officer arrived on the scene to assist with the test. The suspect did not pass the test, and was read his Miranda rights and arrested for DUI. Officers took the driver to UAPD headquarters for further DUI testing. The officer still on the scene

conducted an inventory search of the suspect’s vehicle. It was noted in the report that there was an open, 23.5 ounce can of Four Loko malt liquor on the passengerside floor board. The can was still cold and was three-fourths full. The officer emptied the can and left it in the vehicle. Back at headquarters, the suspect was given two Breathalyzer tests. The results from these tests were 0.272 and 0.259 respectively. The male suspect was charged and cited for an unsafe lane change, DUI in the slightest degree and a blood-alcohol concentration higher than 0.20. The Cadillac was impounded and the results of the test were placed into UAPD Property and Evidence. Sweaty balls UAPD officers responded to a call from a staff member at the UofA Bookstore on July 26 at 10:31 a.m. Officers spoke to the employee who said that they had surveillance video of a non-UA affiliated male removing a package from a display of Ping-Pong balls. The employee said that the suspect then purchased a drink at Starbucks and exited the bookstore with the pingpong package in his hand. The employee followed the suspect out of the bookstore and stopped him to ask if he had a receipt for the balls. The suspect replied, “No.” The suspect was asked to return to the store and to wait until law enforcement arrived. When the officer arrived, he asked the suspect what happened. The suspected told the officer that he came to the bookstore to buy the pingpong balls, but put them under his arm when he went to buy the drink and forgot to pay for the balls before leaving. The officer informed the suspect that he was being placed under arrest for theft. It was noted in the report that his wallet and phone were in a classroom in the Mines and Metallurgy building. Officers accompanied the suspect to the building so he could get his wallet and phone, then transported him to the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

Jared Loughner to plead guilty in Tucson shooting Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — Jared Lee Loughner is set to plead guilty Tuesday to the shooting that severely wounded then Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to knowledgeable sources. Mental health officials believe he is now competent to understand the charges against him in the assault, which killed six people and injured 13 at a gathering with the congresswoman’s constituents in Tucson. Psychiatric experts who have examined Loughner, 23, are scheduled to testify at the hearing Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Tucson. They have concluded that despite wide swings in his mental capacity, at this time he comprehends what happened and acknowledges the gravity of the charges, according to two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was still unfolding. The terms of the plea arrangement remained unclear Saturday as to whether Loughner would admit guilt to all or some of the charges in return for a lengthy prison sentence rather than risk a potential death penalty verdict at trial. Many of the victims of the Jan. 8, 2011

attack and their families are likely to attend the hearing in downtown Tucson, not far from the site of the attack during Giffords’ Congress On Your Corner event. Survivors would be invited to testify about the assault and their injuries at a separate hearing yet to be scheduled, in which Loughner would be formally sentenced. Loughner’s agreement to plead guilty, if finalized in court Tuesday, would probably end more than a year and a half of psychiatric evaluations and testing, including some periods in which he was medicated at a federal prison hospital. It would also close out complex legal disagreements between prosecutors and defense attorneys over his mental capacity. Capital punishment initially was on the table when federal prosecutors in Tucson obtained a grand jury indictment against Loughner, and they announced the case as one with “potential death penalty charges.” The indictment said a search of Loughner’s home turned up a letter hidden in a safe in which Giffords thanked him for attending an earlier Congress On Your Corner event. Also allegedly in the safe was an envelope

with handwriting that said “I planned ahead” and “my assassination” and Giffords’ name, “along with what appears to be Loughner’s signature.” Prosecutors pointed to that as evidence Loughner coldly calculated the attack. But soon after his arrest, the focus immediately became on whether he was mentally fit to stand trial. According to the indictment, Loughner purchased a Glock 9-millimeter semiautomatic pistol at a Tucson gun shop in November 2010, and the ammunition at a Walmart store on the morning of the shooting. He took a taxi to the Safeway parking lot where Giffords was holding her constituent meeting. Among those killed were 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green, born on Sept. 11, 2001, and U.S. District Court Judge John M. Roll, the presiding federal judge there. Giffords, though seriously wounded, has slowly been recovering. The Democrat has since resigned from Congress. Loughner was quickly subdued, and more details came out about his troubled psyche. In July 2011, a prison doctor reported that Loughner was depressed and insisting that
“the radio was talking to him and inserting thoughts into his mind.” He was placed under suicide watch and often paced in circles about his cell, according to court records and pre-trial testimony. He remained convinced that Giffords was dead, and became angry when told she survived. When advised he might face the death penalty, Loughner sobbed for nearly an hour. “I want to die,” he said. “Give me the injection now. Kill me now.” According to court records, two medical experts agreed Loughner suffered from schizophrenia and predicted any improvements would be far away, if possible at all. Even when they tried to interview him, they said, he lay in bed and hid under his covers. What statements he did make were nonsensical, often obsessing about treason. In a May 2011 hearing, federal marshals forcibly removed Loughner from the courtroom after he began shouting incoherently and screaming something like “kill free” or “kill shot.” Then he yelled, “She died in front of me!” Given the option of behaving or watching the proceedings from a nearby cell with a remote television screen, Loughner chose the cell.

How to work out with a busy college schedule By Alyssa DeMember ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
With a school schedule that seems to start at 8 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. every day, it’s easy to neglect your body. Students are busy and have pretty tight schedules, but there are simple ways to fit a few workouts into your routine. It’s not about having rock star abs, the beefiest biceps or the thinnest physique. It’s about doing what works for your body and keeps you healthy. Getting your heart rate up a few times a week is better than nothing, so whether it’s a brisk walk outside, a five-mile bike ride, or an intense weight-lifting session, just keep your body active. Here are a few tips for finding time to work out during your busy week.
There are also plenty of sports-related clubs to join on campus and 39 Campus Recreation Sports Clubs, according to ASUA Student Clubs and Organizations on Orgsync.com.
Go in between classes or during ‘off time’
If English 101 ends at 1 p.m. and Calculus I starts at 2 p.m., make a run to the Rec Center or take a jog around campus during your
Set a day or two aside every week to exercise and don’t deviate This one sounds simple, and it can be, as long as some self-discipline is implemented. Set a goal at the beginning of the school year to work out a certain number of days a week and stick to it. For example, if you tell yourself that you are going to take a jog every Monday morning, go every single Monday morning. No excuses. As soon as excuses start creeping in, the entire semester will fly by and all of a sudden you’ll wonder what happened to your fitness plans. Before setting a goal like this, just be sure that it fits well with your schedule.
Know the available resources
The Student Recreation Center on Sixth Street and Highland Avenue is open at almost all hours of the day. This place has a number of different resources to utilize, including a full-length pool, a large area with weights and cardio machines, racquetball and basketball courts, a rock wall and various other facilities. Go for a workout with your own individual routine, join an intramural sports team or take a fitness class. The options are widespread and the Rec Center has equipment to rent out if you don’t have your own racket or don’t feel like carrying your basketball all day.
break. A few laps around the UA Mall is a great and easy way to stay active, especially as the temperatures start to drop in the fall months. Just go to class with your workout clothes on so you’ll be ready to go as soon as class ends. Of course, be sure not to go for an intense bloodsweat-and-tears sort of deal. You don’t want to arrive at your next class smelling like the New York Giants’ locker room.
Make it an outing with friends

Fitness can also be a fun thing to do with a friend or a group. An early morning hike on the weekend, a midday bike ride or a pick-up game of basketball are all great ways to catch up with friends. You may not even realize it because you’re having fun, but you’re doing your body a lot of good.

Confluencenter encourages a new kind of intellect By Razanne Chatila ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
The center that brought Noam Chomsky to campus last spring, the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry at the University of Arizona, is geared to continue its collaborative effort within the community in order to maintain the university as the intellectual hub of the Southwest. “We work with students and faculty in those fields (social sciences, arts and humanities) and look at innovation and those people doing out-of-the-box projects,” said director Javier Duran. The crossing of disciplines serves to fulfill the mission to bring people and ideas together to cultivate innovation,
collaboration and public engagement, according to the center’s website. The Confluencenter opened in 2009 after 13 faculty members were recruited by the university administration to brainstorm a new interdisciplinary initiative on campus that would address the grand challenges of human existence. It has grown from Duran’s small office in the Modern Languages building to having its own bungalow on Helen Street, across from McClelland Hall. “We are also working hard on creating a robust brand and a wide-ranging identity on campus and beyond,” said Duran. Currently the center is working to develop a speaker series that reflects their initiatives and their lines of inquiry,
called Beyond Boundaries, Digital Inquiry and Performative Environments. They are also launching a series of multimedia presentations by faculty members called “Show and Tell” at the Playground Bar and Lounge downtown, as well as bringing award-winning poet, novelist and essayist Luis Urrea for a Day of the Dead celebration. “Collaboration amongst different members of campus is important and that’s what we work to do,” said Director of Program Development Yvonne Ervin, who also said that engaging and highlighting different research on campus is key to developing upcoming programs and events. Since its inception, Confluencenter has
awarded more than $1 million in grants, fellowships and co-sponsored events. Working with a diverse range of members on campus while featuring undergraduate work is why UA seniors Emma Kleiner and Lauren Johnston have worked with the Confluencenter and Student Affairs for the past two years to produce an undergraduate journal, the Arizona Journal for Interdisciplinary Research. The journal was released on April 25. “An undergraduate journal was the best way to highlight and encourage local scholarship,” said Kleiner. Johnston added that they sought the

FOOD FOR THOUGHT Four foods to keep students focused in class By Alyssa DeMember ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
School can take a lot out of students, so keeping a sharp and focused mind is more important than ever as the new semester rolls in. As class approaches in the coming weeks, students’ minds will undoubtedly shift from a state of relaxation to that of a constantly processing machine. While a good amount of sleep each night and consistent studying are key ingredients for success in class, a proper diet can make all the difference as well. Here are four brain foods that will keep students focused for the entire week.
Blueberries are one of the best brain foods to consume. They are loaded with antioxidants, which “protect your brain from oxidative stress,” said Steven Pratt, MD, author of “Superfoods Rx: Fourteen Foods Proven to Change Your Life,” in a WebMD article. And it certainly helps that these morsels are like little pieces of fruity candy. For best use, add them to a smoothie combined with a tangier fruit like strawberries or mix them into a salad with dark leafy greens.
Seeds and Nuts
Avocados are a diet must. They contain healthy oils and monounsaturated fats, which stimulate blood flow. When more blood flows to the brain, it is able to function in a greater capacity, just like the heart. This fruit also keeps you full and satisfied, and comes with a wide range of uses. For instance, cut a few slices to add to sandwiches with whole grain bread, mash it into guacamole, or eat it plain. When picking out avocados at the grocery store, feel for a slight softness. If the fruit is too firm, it’s not ready to eat and will be difficult to peel. Should you find that you do not use the entire avocado in one sitting, put the rest away in a sealed container along with the pit and use within a few days.
CONFLUENCE FROM PAGE 8
Confluencenter from the beginning because they just had an overall interdisciplinary focus and mission statement and thought their journal’s goal meshed with that. “It’s been a really long process. We just tried to find the best faculty resources and peer resources to put together a great group of people,” said Kleiner. Art history professor Stacie Widdifield was awarded a Collaboration and Innovation Grant in 2011 to fund her project, Art History of Air and Water in Mexico. Widdifield worked with Jeffrey Banister, an assistant professor in the School of Geography and Development and an assistant research social scientist at the UA Southwest Center, with an interdisciplinary group of scholars who
Almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds are all great sources of benefical fats, oils and vitamin E. According to a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, regularly eating foods containing vitamin E could prevent poor memory. So don’t stress too much about all of the material that’s going to be covered on the next exam. Snack on trail mix while you study to keep your brain working, and always look for whole grain choices when eating bread products. PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY ROBERT ALCARAZ / ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
examined the visual cultural of natural resources in Mexico, which include painting, prints, maps, architecture and engineering works. The grant supported Widdifield and her colleagues to conduct a year-long series of focus groups whose participants included colleagues at the UA, colleagues at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and at Oxford University. “We see this project as a visual complement to the UA’s diverse initiatives and units already focused on the environment, history and resources of Mexico,” said Widdifield. She will present a summary of her work this October with a five-day think tank in the School of Art. It is through these types of projects and programs that the center works to share the wealth of creativity and research on campus with others. “We are fostering a true confluence of people and ideas,” said Duran.

Arizona football searching for team leaders during preseason practice By Cameron Moon Arizona Summer Wildcat
Before preseason practice started Wednesday, Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez met with his 20 senior players as a group to discuss leadership — or their lack of an established team leader. Like any team sport, leadership positions are emphasized and needed in football. After a coaching change and the departure of three key senior NFL Draft picks, Arizona football is looking for the kind of leadership it had when Nick Foles manned the offense with Juron Criner for three seasons and Trevin Wade went from two-star recruit to a seventh-round selection by the Cleveland Browns in his time with the Wildcats. This team lacks leadership in the same way that it lacks stable playmakers. Fifthyear senior quarterback Matt Scott is one of the only players on the team whose job is not up for grabs, automatically meaning the standards are raised for him on and off the field. “He knows the leadership is forced upon him, it comes with his position, but he also knows that it comes with his position as a senior,” Rodriguez said. “We’re going to hold him to a higher standard and I think that’s what he expects.”

Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez, left, is looking for leaders in his group of 20 senior players. Wide receiver Dan Buckner, shown right in his former No. 15 jersey, looks to be one of those leaders.
Scott will be expected to lead and manage the offense as well as remain in good health. The Wildcats have three true freshmen quarterbacks, two transfer quarterbacks and Richard Morrison, who converted from quarterback to receiver under former coach Mike Stoops. “We’re hoping that, (junior transfer) B.J. Denker, or (freshmen) Josh Kern or Javelle Allen or one of these freshmen are going to emerge,” Rodriguez said. “So far, B.J. is
progressing pretty well.” That higher standard Scott is held to extends to all of Rodriguez’s veteran players, including fifth-year wide receiver Dan Buckner, who has been an Arizona athlete for two seasons, after playing for Mack Brown and the Texas Longhorns his freshman and sophomore seasons. He said his experience with the Longhorns helped mold him into a better leader because of older players like Colt
McCoy and Jordan Shipley, who taught him the finer points of playing the game. “(Former Longhorn receiver Jordan) Shipley was a fifth year senior when I got there and got his sixth year my sophomore year, so there was older guys,” Buckner said. “(Former Texas quarterback) Colt (McCoy) was the ultimate leader.” Buckner is undoubtedly the Wildcats’ go-to receiver this season at 6-foot-4 inches, after sharing that role with Criner a season ago. Buckner caught 42 passes for 606 yards and two touchdowns a year ago, but the 22-year-old will be expected to produce more. “This is my fifth year as a college player so I think I’m a leader,” Buckner said. “I remember when I was 17 looking for leadership and now I’m at the other end of the spectrum.” For many Arizona football players, the awkward switch from unproven player to mature team leader has begun, but the way these players handle it will continue to unfold throughout fall camp. “They’re hungry, they’ve bought in and they’ve done a great job with leadership,” Rodriguez said of his seniors. “I think when you go through things like they’ve gone through with the coaching change and working hard together, I think it bonds them together.”
Inexperienced Arizona linebackers to face trial by fire Lack of depth to provide Wildcats with challenges in the upcoming season By Kyle Johnson Arizona Summer Wildcat
Coming into fall camp, Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez’s depth chart for the Arizona football team was full of “or’s” as the new coach waited to further evaluate his roster. Only one group, the linebackers, had all of its starting spots secure. But the decision didn’t come from unquestioned confidence in the returning linebackers. Rather, it came from a complete lack of depth at the position. “That is definitely our thinnest position,” said Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez. “Some of our guys will need to be ready a lot sooner than they thought, particularly some freshmen. Jake Fischer is the only guy we know that has gotten a lot of experience, but outside
of him, it is wide open.” Fischer, a junior, is slotted as one of the three starting linebackers this season and is returning from an ACL tear in his right knee that kept him out of the entire 2011 season. Joining him are two sophomores, Rob Hankins and Hank Hobson. Together they have 12 combined starts and 83 career tackles, but there didn’t seem like there would be an issue at linebacker when camp finished in the spring. During the spring Brian Wagner, a graduate transfer from Akron, Ohio, filled the leadership role in the middle of the field. Wagner brought talent and a wealth of experience as his 147 combined tackles last season made him the NCAA active leader in career tackles at the time. But in June, Wagner left the pro-
gram, leaving the Wildcats with few options at linebacker. “We really miss Brian (Wagner), he was a great player,” Hankins said. “Me and him worked together learning the system, we’re going to miss him a lot. But we were short last year and we’ll be short this year and we’re going to make it work.” As of now it appears that Jeff Casteel and Rodriguez will need to rely on some true freshmen to step in and provide some support — just like Hankins and Hobson did last year. “Luckily we got thrown into the fire last year also as freshmen, so it’s not scary this year as sophomores,” Hankins said, who had a careerhigh five tackles in the Wildcats 37-10 loss last season to Stanford. Thanks to Fischer’s injury before the season,
the linebacking corps faced a similar situation with its depth, and both Hankins and Hobson had to learn on the fly against elite Pac-12 talent. “Last year they both had to step into starting roles they shouldn’t have been in,” Fischer said. “I think that was really an eye opener for them.” Fischer added that having big game experience will help them this year and that they will be ready to fully step into the starting role. As of now, newcomers and some freshmen will have to prepare for games as if they were starters in the event of injury. The one player already slotted into a backup role is linebacker C.J. Dozier.

Bolt the king during golden age of sprinting MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
LONDON - This is sports at its best, at its purest, at its most primal. In less than 10 seconds, a massive slice of the globe watches as the fastest men in the world gather to determine the fastest man in the world. Usain Bolt could refuse to ever again race, and he would still be considered The Sprint King until the 2016 Rio Games. The next sprint race that really matters is four years away. Bolt had to push himself this time. During his run to gold in Beijing in 2008, Bolt might have been on his way to a 9.5 clocking but wanted to enjoy a show-off stroll the final 10 meters. It was the most dazzling sprint performance in history. A determined, gifted field forced Bolt to dig this time. He finished in 9.63, edging Jamaican teammates Yohan Blake. The biggest question in these Olympics? That’s easy. In pubs and restaurants and pressboxes, the most constant discussion was whether Bolt still was blessed with the world’s fastest feet. He had been in a slump, bothered by a sore hamstring, and there were hints Blake had literally passed him by as Mr. Rapid. But Bolt was only indulging in a light sleep, awaiting the race that truly mattered. We appear to be living in the Golden Age of sprinting. For a decade or so, the men or women who reigned as sprint kings and
Basketball Team USA, which includes former Wildcat forward Andre Iguodala, has already qualified for the quarterfinals, despite still having one more game in pool play against Argentina tonight.

queens were under suspicion of doping. It was a sad time in track. Bolt has brought the smile back. He promises everyone he’s clean, and there’s every reason to believe him. Let’s hope he’s telling the truth. He’s one of the most charismatic, entertaining athletes ever. The buzz in the stadium was immense. More than 2 million fans had sought tickets for this night, leaving a mere 80,000 to enjoy the show. Bolt is too lanky to burst out of the gates at top speed. He fell slightly behind, but this is normal for him. Once Bolt hits his stride, nobody can compete with him. He’s too tall, devouring the track with his big strides. By the midway point, it was clear nobody had a chance to dethrone him. In 1968, Wyomia Tyus became the first sprinter, man or woman, to repeat as 100 champion. Bolt had joined Carl Lewis as the only male 100 repeaters. Tyus said the key to victory is to wear the speed crown lightly. “I never let the whole idea of being the fastest woman in the world get me down,” she said. Bolt follows in that tradition. He’s not burdened by his gifts. He’s having a blast, and so are we.

of playing against the new, high paced offense Rodriguez is installing for the Wildcats. “Once these (young linebackers) get in there and see what it’s like to go against an offense like ours, I think we’ll be fine,” Fischer said. The inexperienced and thin linebacker core will be tested plenty this season against some offensive juggernauts, specifically No. 3 USC and at No. 5 Oregon, but Hankins sees it as more of an opportunity to prove themselves than as a shortcoming. “We like it that way because we can surprise people,” Hankins said. “We can come out and make a statement which is a challenge — and we like it like that.”

Son of Eagles’ Reid found dead Mcclatchy tribune
BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Garrett Reid, 29, son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead in a Lehigh University dormitory room early Sunday morning. Reid’s body was discovered by an Eagles official who called police at 7:20 a.m. to report that Reid was unresponsive, according to Ed Shupp, Lehigh University chief of police. Shupp said police arrived at the dorm room at 7:21 a.m. Garrett Reid had been working for the Eagles as a strength and conditioning coach and had been a fixture around the team since his release from prison in 2009. Reid had a long, troubled past involving drug addiction. To those around the Eagles, Garrett Reid appeared to have rebounded from his addiction. He had “found his passion in helping others develop their physique,” according to a family statement. Garrett Reid was the eldest of the Reid’s five children. He was at Lehigh along with his father and the rest of the Eagles for training camp. Garrett Reid was found dead in a dorm room at Lehigh’s Sayre Park, where the Eagles reside during camp. “On arrival, attempts to revive the individual were unsuccessful,” Shupp said. “Garrett Reid was deceased on the officer’s arrival.” Northampton County coroner Zachary Lysek, who pronounced Garrett Reid dead, said that he was conducting an investigation with the cooperation of the Lehigh police department.
Team owner Jeffrey Lurie, who was originally scheduled to hold his annual state of the Eagles news conference on Sunday, instead delivered a somber statement later in the afternoon. “I’ve watched Andy try so hard with his family over the years,” Lurie said. “He cares so much about his family that it’s a hard one. You see a man that really cares.” Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and defensive coordinator Juan Castillo oversaw Sunday’s practices and will oversee the squad until Reid returns. Players and coaches somberly walked off the field after a morning walk-through and did the same following the afternoon session. “Coach has always been a great supporter of us, as a team, as an organization,” Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said in a statement. “He’s been a rock for us and a big teddy bear for us, so we’re going to lean on him, and we’re going to be there for him, and we’re going to stay strong for him until he comes back and can lead us on.” Andy Reid later took a six-week leave of absence during the 2007 offseason as his sons faced criminal charges. Garrett Reid was sentenced to 23 months for smashing up another motorist’s car while he was on heroin and spent time in and out of jail during the next two years. Garrett Reid “had planned to begin studies in sports management in the fall,” according to his family.
