Hip-hop culture focus of new minor BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat
With rap and hip-hop so embedded into today’s popular culture, it’s now made its way into the classroom. A new Africana Studies minor with a focus on hip-hop cultures was approved this summer and is now being offered to students. The program requires 18 units, with 15 units of core classes. Such classes include Rap, Culture and God, Hip-Hop Cinema and U.S. and Francophone hip-hop cultures. Students can choose
from Pan-African Dance Aesthetics, Blacks in Hollywood or a few other choices for an elective. Despite the focus on the culture, the minor does not solely entail students listening to rap and learning dance moves in the classroom, said Alain-Philippe Durand, director of the School of International Languages, Literatures and Cultures and professor of Francophone Hip-Hop Cultures. “I can just imagine if [students] were telling their parents they were going to take a course in hip-hop or minor in hip-hop,” Durand said. “Their parents would go like, ‘Whoa, what the
hell is this? Hip-hop studies?’” Durand explained that hip-hop touches on all the different aspects of society and who people are. Durand’s class specifically focuses on the origins of hip-hop culture and its development in the U.S. and the francophone world. Although some may not realize it, hip-hop courses addresses a variety of disciplines, according to Durand. “Some students think we’re going to be studying Lil Wayne and that’s going to be the extent of the study of hip-hop,” said Alexander Nava, an associate professor, teaching Rap,
Culture and God. “It’s just the impression of hip-hop that steers some people away from actually minoring in it.” Some students agree that not everyone has an accurate impression of hip-hop and its educational value. “I think it’s really cool and we need more classes like that,” said Lizette Cota, a global studies junior. “But maybe some people don’t think it is education when it really is.” Although some of the classes required for minor have been available for some time,

Thousands still opt in for services despite fee Once free, access to career resources now costs $5 each year BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat
Career Services has seen thousands of students opting in for their web resources despite imposing a $5 fee for services that were once free for most students. Undergraduate students now have the choice to opt-in for the $5 fee per academic year for web resources. Alumni can also access these services if they pay a $20 fee. More than 3,000 students have chosen to opt-in as of Aug. 20, according to Eileen McGarry, director for UA Career Services. Over the past several years, most

Shorter journey to asteroid for OSIRIS-REx MATT BURNS Arizona Daily Wildcat
OSIRIS-REx, the NASA-funded, $805.5 million asteroid sample return mission, will now require 14 months less travel time on its way to the target asteroid, according to Heather Enos, project planning and control officer in the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory. The launch date for the mission is Sept. 4, 2016, with a 39-day possible take-off window. The arrival date of asteroid 1999 RQ36 was originally set for Dec. 2019, but over the last eight months, additional calculations to optimize travel time have put the vehicle’s estimated date of arrival to the asteroid sometime in October 2018. Enos said the decreased travel time will not result in the vehicle returning to Earth sooner but will add an additional margin of time during which OSIRIS-REx can complete its objectives on the
asteroid. “It’s nice to have a little bit more time to work with, to deal with any unexpected things that come up,” said Anna Spitz, the laboratory’s lead education and public outreach officer. While the mission has seen some changes in terms of scheduling, the overall objectives of the mission have stayed the same. The robot, upon arriving at the asteroid, will have to find an optimal site on the asteroid to obtain a sample, attempting to find a location which will best represent the composition of the asteroid as a whole. Once the site has been found, the robot will have three tries to take a sample. Enos said the sample will weigh about 60 grams, or the size and weight of a filled coffee cup. The robot will return to Earth with the sample in September 2023, and researchers will begin

students have been able to use the services for free. Seniors had to pay a $25 fee in order to access certain services, such as on-campus recruiting. This semester, Career Services removed the $25 fee and spread it across four years at $5 each year. “We want to keep providing the best resources, but we’re hoping to reduce the pressure of suddenly the $25 comes to you your senior year,” McGarry said. “It’s just $5 now and everything is there.” The fee allows students to access a variety of services, such as the UA resume builder, UA career network and the Wildcat JobLink, to name a few. However, some of the services that are still free include career counseling, resume checks and
interview stream. Although the $5 fee might seem unnecessary to students who are used to free access, over the span of four years the cost would amount to less than the $25 fee for a student’s senior year, McGarry said. Along with helping students by lowering the user fee for their last year, the fee will also help career services pay for the resources they provide for students, McGarry added. “Basically, we’re trying to provide the resource at the lowest cost we possibly can in a challenging budget situation and trying to make the least impact on the student with the fee,” McGarry said. The career services team vetted the fee through deans, department heads and through ASUA, in order to see the impact it would have. There was a tremendous amount of support, according to McGarry. Logan Bilby, marketing junior
and a senator for the Associated Students for the University of Arizona, worked closely with Career Services on the $5 fee and helped gauge the general opinion and reaction to the fee. Bilby explained that Career Services is helping facilitate students and pushing them to establish their future. “This says a lot to me about where Career Services is trying to help me,” Bilby said. “it says a lot about their passion to take me to the job and the internship that I’m most passionate about. As a student, that touches home.” Some students are also excited about the new fee because of their ability to access a variety of services for an overall lower cost. “The cost is so low that it’s kind of a no-brainer to do it,” said Stephen Sterling, a senior studying philosophy, politics, economics and law and a career service employer
ambassador. “That year equates to like 42-cents-a-month membership to have access to over a thousand job opportunities, internships and volunteer opportunities.” Students can opt-in through a link on Career Services’ home page, which will put them through an activation process. Once students are finished editing their settings, they can choose to bill the non-refundable fee to their bursar’s account. Since this is a user fee, students can choose whether or not they want to access these services. If the student decides to opt-in they have the ability to opt-out at any point if they do not want to pay the $5 fee for the following academic year. “If students aren’t looking for a job, an internship, or any of those services, they don’t have to opt in,” Sterling said. “But the majority of people at colleges are looking for those things; therefore it’d be irrational not to opt-in.”

the new minor provides students with an option to concentrate on hip-hop studies. For those who have to choose a minor for their major, this could provide a fun and interesting choice, Durand said. Some students agree that the minor is outside of the norm but will most likely provide an engaging learning experience. “I think it’s really interesting,” said Sherin Bellas, a family studies and development junior. “I think it’s relevant and can be tied into a lot of different areas that we already study.” Despite the fact that no one has signed up for the minor, some professors are optimistic about future interest. “Africana Studies is really growing as a program, and we’re really excited about that growth,” Durand said. “We have seen a big increase in our number of majors and minors. We feel like with the hip-hop minor, it’s going to increase KEVIN BROST/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT even more and even faster.” ALAIN-PHILIPPE DURAND is the director of the School of International Languages, Literature and Cultures, which is offering a new Africana Studies minor that enables students to focus on hip-hop cultures.

Hooters restaurant facing accusations of discrimination MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE NEW YORK — A KoreanAmerican man who got a receipt identifying him as “CHINX” when he ordered Buffalo shrimp and chicken wings to go has filed suit seeking damages for the slight from a Hooters restaurant in Queens. Kisuk Cha, 25, a Pennsylvania man who was dining with his girlfriend in the Fresh Meadows section of Queens in early July, was “shocked, stunned, mortified, humiliated and severely distressed,” according to a complaint filed in Brooklyn federal court. “He wanted to confront his server but was paralyzed with anguish,” Cha claims in his lawsuit. “He could not eat the food he had just bought as his stomach was churning and he could not be sure that someone did not spit in his food. ... He does not feel welcome at Hooters and indeed questions whether he is welcomed at any non-Korean establishments.” Ed McCabe, a lawyer for Strix Llc — which owns four Hooters restaurants in Queens and on Long Island — and owner
William Harley acknowledged the incident, but said the hostess responsible for the racial description has resigned and the restaurant isn’t liable because her actions violated corporate policy. “It was an isolated incident,” McCabe said. The word “Chinx” appeared on a section of the receipt designed to allow servers in the bar area to describe customers waiting to pick up food so they can be identified. Typically, McCabe said, it might read “blond” or “redhead.” Cha alleged that his server, identified as “Shenika” on the receipt, giggled at him. But McCabe said an internal investigation initiated by the Hooters chain national office identified another employee, a 20-year-old hostess, as the culprit. She resigned, and would have been fired, he said. The conduct was contrary to training Hooters gives its servers, McCabe said, and a review of three months’ worth of receipts found no other racial descriptions. “She was remorseful,” McCabe said of the hostess who resigned. “I think there was a complete lack of comprehension of the insensitivity of the remark.”
THE “HOOTERS GIRLS” POSE for a picture with customers at Beijing’s Hooters in China. The chain restaurant is facing accusations of racial discrimination by a Korean-American man who was given a receipt with a racial slur on it when he ate at a Queens location, according to a lawsuit.

Middle Eastern protestors storm US embassies on anniversary of attacks MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
CAIRO — Protesters in Libya and Egypt stormed U.S. diplomatic missions Tuesday on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in a day of rage that underscored the growth of fundamentalist movements in countries where new governments were swept to power in the aftermath of last year’s Arab spring. In Cairo, thousands of demonstrators stormed the U.S. Embassy, lowered the American flag and destroyed it, then danced atop the walls in a protest that lasted hours. Egyptian police made no effort to confront them. In Libya’s second largest city, Benghazi, protesters stormed the U.S. consulate, setting the building ablaze. Witnesses said they heard loud explosions nearby and that armed men had surrounded the area around the consulate, blocking the road and making it impossible for reporters to film the scene. One man in Benghazi, who didn’t want to be identified for security reasons, suggested that Islamists were responsible for the attacks. In recent weeks, Islamist fundamentalists have destroyed cemeteries and mosques in Libya associated with the moderate Sufi strain of Islam. “I was stopped by a guy whose beard extended to his knees,” the man said, in an exaggeration. “And he told me very proudly not to pass because we have burned the American consulate.” In Cairo, police surrounded the embassy building but made no move to confront the demonstrators as they sprayed graffiti on the 12-foot walls that encircle the compound. One protester tested his spray can on a policemen’s shield before aiming it at the wall; the officer simply shrugged. The police also made no move to challenge the protesters as they lowered the American flag. As the flag was torn and
then set on fire, a man climbed a ladder alongside the flagpole and replaced the flag with one that read, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger.” Among the chants yelled toward the embassy was “Take a picture, Obama, we are all Osama,” a reference to Osama bin Laden, who planned and financed the 9/11 attacks and whom U.S. commandoes killed on May 2, 2011. “Say it, don’t fear: Their ambassador must leave,” was another. State Department officials said their employees weren’t in danger. Most had gone home early in anticipation that the protesters would scale the wall around 5 p.m. The Egyptian protests were spurred by two controversial figures that stoked old grievances against the United States: that it is anti-Muslim and doing harm to the Muslim world. It was a reminder that Egypt’s first democratic election, which the United States encouraged, hadn’t yet yielded any change in widely held beliefs about American interests in the region. Organizers of the protest at the embassy said they’d begun planning the event last week when a controversial Egyptian Christian activist who lives in the United States, Morris Sadek, released a trailer for a movie called “Muhammad” that repeatedly mocks the prophet and the religion. The 14-minute clip, which Sadek first posted on his Facebook page Sept 5, attacked basic tenets of the Islam and suggested that the religion had spread only because the prophet told those he encountered to “pay extortion or die” if they didn’t convert. Christians make up roughly 10 percent of Egypt’s population, and officials from Egypt’s Coptic churches have condemned the film. The film controversy came as a controversial Florida pastor, Terry Jones, whose burning of the Quran in 2011 set off days of rioting in Afghanistan, announced that he planned to put
the prophet on trial Tuesday in what he called International Judge Muhammad Day. In a video announcing the “trial,” Jones, wearing a black shirt with the word “Infidel” printed on it in Arabic, said that he planned to charge the prophet “with being a false prophet, thus leading 1.6 billion people astray.” The embassy had tried to pre-empt the attack, issuing a statement hours earlier that condemned “the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Nader Bakkar, a spokesman for the conservative Islamist Nour party, said he’d received a call from the embassy, apologizing, but that it wasn’t enough for him to call off the protest. Insulting the prophet “goes beyond a red line for us,” he said. “The American people must know we do not accept any kind of insult of the prophet, peace be upon him,” Bakkar said, adding nevertheless that he opposed pulling down the American flag. Islam forbids any depiction of Muhammad because he’s seen as someone whose greatness can’t be replicated. In documentaries about his life, he’s often portrayed as a ray of light. That someone would mock the prophet is considered blasphemous. Sharif Abdel Meniem, 29, who helped organize the protest, said he planned the demonstrations “because the Americans did not take a real stand against” Jones’ call. “The prophet does not have a hand in the 9/11 attacks,” he said as chanters yelled, “The prophet’s army has arrived.” That the protest fell on Sept. 11 wasn’t lost on those participating. “This anniversary provokes the United States,” said Islam Mustafa, 23, a student. “But (Americans) are the ones provoking us.”
Presidential candidates set politics aside during 9/11 MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE NEW YORK — With bagpipes and somber bells sounding a sharp counterpoint to the commemorative moments of silence, the nation on Tuesday marked the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attack that brought down the World Trade Center in Manhattan and shattered the country’s political psyche. The sun rose on a cool, crisp morning, remarkably similar to that which dawned 11 years ago. At all three sites — the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in Manhattan, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pa. — the focus was on the victims who died when terrorists hijacked four commercial jetliners. The Manhattan ceremony also honored the six people killed on Feb. 26, 1993, when attackers set off a truck bomb beneath the North Tower of the World Trade Center. A total of 2,983 people died in the 1993 and the 2001 attacks, the latter of which brought down both World Trade Center towers. Now, the footprint of each tower is filled with a giant reflecting pool, and the names of victims are etched into bronze parapets, allowing visitors to run their hands over the names as they peer into the watery voids. There were no political speeches in New York, and this year’s presidential campaigns were briefly paused. Both campaigns pulled some negative ads in a bow to the somber ceremonies. But both candidates were highly visible. President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, observed a

moment of silence on the White House lawn at 8:46 a.m. Eastern, the moment the first hijacked plane crashed into the World Trade Center. The Obamas then went to the Pentagon, one of the other targets of the al-Qaida attack. Romney was at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, where about two dozen firefighters gathered on the tarmac for a brief memorial timed to the moment the first plane struck the World Trade Center. Standing on and in front of several fire trucks, lights flashing, the firefighters stood at attention, saluting, for a full minute at 7:46 a.m. Central time. A large American flag was draped on the trucks behind them. Romney arrived at the airport for a campaign flight about 15 minutes later. Before boarding his plane, he strode about 100 yards across the tarmac to where the firefighters were still gathered in a row and shook hands with each of them. “On this most somber day, those who would attack us should know that we are united, one nation under God, in our determination to stop them and to stand tall for peace and freedom at home and across the world,” Romney said in a written statement distributed by the campaign. Vice President Joe Biden attended the ceremony in Shanksville, Pa. It took place before a white marble wall with the names of the 40 passengers and crew from United Flight 93, forced to crash in the field by the heroic passengers and crew on the hijacked plane. The names of the dead were read aloud with two bells sounding each time. “We wish we weren’t here. We wish we didn’t have to be here. We wish we didn’t have to commemorate any of this,” Biden said.

People complaining about the media Several news outlets, like the Los Angeles Times, took flak for not putting coverage of the 9/11 anniversary on the front page of yesterday’s papers. Ignoring that it’s impossible for newspapers to print a story about an event on the same morning as the day the event is to take place, readers felt the day had been ignored. Understandably, no one believes the anniversary of 9/11 should be forgotten. Newspapers from the Daily Wildcat to The New York Times, prepared special sections for the 10th anniversary. But if you continue to make it front-page news every year, what do you do on the 12th anniversary? The 24th? It’s important to never forget, but it’s also important to move on. Women being awesome The Senate confirmed the appointment of Stephanie Rose on Monday. She’s the first female District Court judge in Iowa’s Southern District, not to mention the 72nd woman appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama. George W. Bush also appointed 72 women to the bench — throughout his entire presidency. Bill Clinton appointed 111 women, but only 61 in his first term. Obama set the record for most female judges confirmed in a term, and has demonstrated a strong record for diversifying the bench overall by having 31 black federal judges confirmed (compared to Bush’s 26) and three openly gay judges (compared to zero by Bush). Given most presidents’ history of appointing mostly white males, more people from all backgrounds on the bench is a welcome sign diversity is on its way up.

Chris Brown, creepy neck tattoos Singer Chris Brown, famous for radio hits like “Don’t Wake Me Up” and for beating then-girlfriend and fellow musician Rihanna in 2009, set gossip sites on fire when he debuted a tattoo on his neck. The tattoo, according to some critics, resembles Rihanna’s face, post-beating. You might have to squint your eyes and tilt your head to the left to see it, but apparently it’s Rihanna’s face, complete with bruised lip and black eye. A rep for Brown has said it’s not supposed to be Rihanna or any beaten woman. It’s a MAC cosmetics design of a sugar skull associated with the Day of the Dead. Given that neither musician can walk two steps without being linked to the other somehow, it’s not a surprise the media jumped all over this one. But no one’s said the most important part: Neck tattoos are really, really ugly.

New York banning big sodas Yeah, that New York soda ban is still a thing. It first made headlines in May as an ambitious effort by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to counter obesity, but it was met by critics who said it was their right to drink giant sodas if they wanted to. Recently, the National Restaurant Association has released a statement saying that the ban, if approved, “will result in customer confusion and operational difficulties.” The board is expected to meet and vote on the proposed ban Sept. 13. At this point, the question is not whether or not the ban is fair. The real issue at hand is why we’re still talking about this.

Unpaid internships not worth the cost Nyles Kendall ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
mployment opportunities for 20 to 24-year-olds are hard to come by in today’s job market, and since the onset of the economic recovery, youth unemployment numbers have improved only modestly. It’s hardly surprising that more and more of us are turning to unpaid internships to escape the jobless blues. But college graduates seeking refuge from post-college unemployment should be aware of the drawbacks to these highly sought-after unpaid internships. Yes, an internship at the right company can springboard you into the work force, but the experience itself can be fraught with disadvantages. The last thing anyone wants after spending thousands on a four-year degree is to be stuck cleaning out office supply rooms or wiping door handles to minimize the spread of swine flu. The most obvious inconvenience is that unpaid internships are — who would have guessed — unpaid, which means you’ll either have to break your back
juggling multiple part-time jobs or have exceptionally generous friends or relatives willing to provide you with food and room and board while you intern. Of course, if you have a stockpile of cash sitting in your savings account, this could all be avoided — but let’s be honest. Most broke college students can’t afford to be that liberal with their finances. The point is that if you don’t have the means or the methods to support yourself, your unpaid internship could quickly become a lesson in how to live below the poverty line. Another drawback that is frequently overlooked by prospective interns is that time spent interning could be used to find an actual job with a salary. Instead of pushing papers or brewing coffee for an ornery supervisor and his ungrateful staff for nothing in return, you could be out there working in an entry-level position, making money while gaining valuable experience. Internships that actually give you a look at the realities of your future career and get your foot in the employer’s door are the ones
you should aim for. If you find that most of your time is spent performing menial tasks fit for a custodian, you probably aren’t doing anything to advance your career prospects. Unfortunately, it’s become exceedingly difficult to determine whether or not companies offering unpaid internships are seeking to enhance or exploit interns, which is why the Department of Labor has started cracking down on companies who aren’t in compliance with federal labor laws regarding internships. An internship must resemble vocational education and interns must work under close supervision. Moreover, their work cannot substitute the work of paid employees or be of immediate benefit to the employer. If a company is found in violation of these federal legal criteria, an unpaid intern has the right to sue for minimum wage violations. So before you jump at the opportunity to take an unpaid internship at that one big company or firm, bear in mind that you may not be getting what you bargained for. An internship can be a very rewarding and beneficial experience, but it can also be a waste of money, time and energy if you’re not careful. — Nyles Kendall is a political science senior.

here is nothing more shameful than being an American in Paris. That is, there is nothing more shameful than being an American and meeting people from all over the world who know just as much, if not more, about your nation as you do. I’m spending the year as an exchange student in Paris, where I’m studying at Sciences Po, France’s leading institute of social science. Forty-two percent of the student population here is foreign, representing more than 100 countries. With so much diversity, one might expect students’ discussions here to be just as multicultural as the students themselves. Yet most of our conversations concern a single nation, the United States. My fellow students watched the Democratic and Republican national conventions, and they watched the latest season of “How I Met Your Mother.” They can point to Arizona on an unlabeled map, and they’ve heard that breakfast burritos can cure a hangover. As for me, the American, I know relatively little about my classmates’ nations. This might be excusable if I possessed expert knowledge of my own country, but I don’t think I can even remember all of the provisions in the Bill of Rights. I am the stereotypical American, completely unaware of other countries and hardly familiar with my own. Despite globalization, this stereotype remains accurate. When Newsweek asked 1,000 Americans to take a citizenship test in March 2011, 29 percent of the participants couldn’t name the vice president and 73 percent couldn’t explain the reasons for fighting the Cold War. While Americans themselves are partially to blame for upholding this stereotype, there are other culprits — our public schools and universities. Let’s begin with K-12. Rather than capitalizing on children’s ability to acquire languages when they are between the ages of 1 and 12, most public school systems, excluding perhaps only charter schools, do not offer foreign language classes until the ninth grade. Americans may be lucky to reach fluency in one foreign language, while Europeans may learn to speak four or five. If that isn’t enough of a disadvantage, American high school students take mostly math, science and English classes rather than history and geography classes. California State University, for example, only requires high school students who are seeking admission as first-time freshmen to have taken two history courses — U.S. history courses. At the same time, it requires four years of English classes and three of math. Students entering California State University may be excellent writers and mathematicians, but they will be lousy ambassadors to the rest of the world. This ethno-centric attitude in the public K-12 system prevails in public universities as well. To earn a bachelor of arts degree at the UA, students need to take only four semesters of a foreign language. Studying a language for four semesters is enough to learn how to say, “Excuse me, do you speak English?” Perhaps language deficiency is the reason only 350 UA students study abroad each year. Or maybe it’s because institutional awards like the Wildcat Excellence Tuition Award and the Regent’s High Honors Endorsement Award cannot be used to study abroad or participate in an international exchange program. At my university here in Paris, every student is required to study abroad for the entirety of their third year. The academic expectations and institutional regulations of America’s public schools and universities enable students to be narrowminded. By maintaining a negligent attitude toward foreign countries, our education system discourages multiculturalism, cultivates ignorance and perpetuates a negative stereotype of the United States. The result is a lagging American public that cannot compete, or even interact, with the rest of the world. It is easy to say that the reason people from other countries know a lot about the United States is because the United States is a leading world power. America’s job is not to be educated about other nations; its job is to lead them. But the world order is shifting, and the U.S. is slipping from its pedestal. Unless we transform our public schools and universities into multicultural institutions, Americans will continue to grow up ignorant and small-minded, leaving them unable to fully engage in the globalized world. If today’s typical American is uneducated, tomorrow’s typical American is infantile. — Savannah Martin is a junior studying journalism and political science.

POLICE BEAT YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat
Knock, knock, no answer
Two University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to a call from the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall regarding an intoxicated 18-year-old resident at 2 a.m. on Sept. 3. When the officers arrived, they were escorted to a room on the fifth floor where the residence assistant on duty said she saw three men enter, carrying an unconscious man. She said they had left the unconscious man on the bed and left quickly. The officers continuously knocked on the door, but there was no answer. Due to the seriousness of the situation, the RA was asked to unlock the door. When the officers walked in, they noticed the resident lying on the bed with vomit and saliva coming from his mouth. One officer tried to wake the resident but there was no response, so he performed a sternum rub. The man did not react. The Tucson Fire Department arrived soon after and transported the man to the University of Arizona Medical Center. The resident was a minor but was not arrested at the time, as he was unaware of the situation and unable to stay conscious for more than a few seconds. According to the report, the resident would be arrested for a minor in possession during the officer’s next shift.
Gluten allergy results in mess
A UAPD officer went to Yavapai Residence Hall at 1:51 a.m. on Sept. 3 after a report of an intoxicated student. TFD was already in the women’s restroom with a woman who had been in a restroom stall vomiting when they first arrived at the scene. The 18-year-old admitted that she had been drinking earlier. Her eyes were red and watery and her breath smelled like alcohol. TFD decided she wasn’t in need of further medical treatment and the UAPD officer walked her to her room. She was read her Miranda rights. She agreed to comply. The student said she had consumed an unknown amount of shots and beers at a Sigma Chi fraternity party. She claimed to be allergic to gluten and that the beer possibly made her sick. The officer cited and released her for minor with alcohol in body.
Dude, where’s my license?
A UAPD officer found a vehicle with a suspended license plate in the Taco Bell parking lot on Campbell Avenue and Speedway Boulevard at 3:25 a.m. on Sept. 4. The officer approached the 21-year-old driver of the black Honda. The non-UA affiliated man identified himself with an Arizona driver’s license. Records showed that his license was suspended and that his vehicle had a mandatory insurance suspended plate. UAPD dispatch was called to confirm the driver’s suspended license. The driver was cited and released for displaying a suspended plate. The Honda was towed and impounded for 30 days.

Scott, Carey and Fischer lead way Defense in first football player power rankings still a Football Notes
ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT STAFF
work in progress
2. (tie) Jake Fischer, linebacker
Each week, Arizona Daily Wildcat football beat reporters Zack Rosenblatt, Season totals: 27 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 2 Cameron Moon and Kyle Johnson will vote on the top 10 players on Arizona’s roster to that point in the season. The rankings will take into account the forced fumbles, 1 recovery Week two: 14 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 recovery full- season performance, with fluctuations based on week-to-week statistics.
1. Matt Scott, quarterback
Season totals: 707 passing yards, 4 touchdowns, 1 interception, 66.7% completions, 129 rushing yards, 1 touchdown Week two against OSU: 28-of-41, 320 yards, 2 touchdowns, 55 rushing yards, 1 touchdown Scott has been nothing short of spectacular in the first two weeks, and his fit in head coach Rich Rodriguez’s system has been key to the Wildcats’ 2-0 start.
2. (tie) Ka’Deem Carey, running back
Season totals: 273 yards, 4 touchdowns, 36 receiving yards, 1 touchdown Week two: 126 rushing yards, 3 touchdowns, four receptions, 28 yards, 1 touchdown Carey was expected to be the biggest benefactor of the new spread-option offensive system due to its run-first tendencies. It hasn’t necessarily been “runfirst,” but Carey still broke out. He is just 152 yards and two touchdowns off his rushing totals from 2011.
He may have missed all of 2011 with an ACL injury, but there doesn’t appear to be any lingering effects from his time sitting out. Fischer is flying all over the field and leads the Wildcats in tackles.
ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat
4. Jared Tevis, safety
Season totals: 21 tackles, 2 interceptions, 2 pass breakups, 5 pass deflections Week two: 9 tackles, 2 interceptions, 32 yards, 2 pass breakups Here’s how Tevis’ career has gone at this point: walk-on redshirt, special teams contributor, scholarship player, starting safety, key contributor on a ranked Arizona team. Tevis has two interceptions and is second on the team in tackles. It’s safe to say no one outside of the locker room expected this kind of contribution.
The Arizona defense has been widely praised for its performance the past two weeks. In particular, Jake Fischer and Jared Tevis have been noted for their roles Arizona’s two wins. Fischer was Pac-12 Player of the Week after the first week and leads the Wildcats with 27 tackles, while Tevis has twice been selected as the coaches’ defensive player of the week for leading the team in interceptions, with two, and is second in tackles. Jonathan McKnight got a lot of publicity for his 48-yard interception return for a touchdown against Oklahoma State, and Marquis Flowers’ transition to linebacker from safety appears to be a successful as he leads the team in sacks. Head coach Rich Rodriguez is not impressed yet. “There are still a lot of questions,” Rodriguez said. “We’ve done all right. We’ve won, but we’ve given up a lot of yards, we’ve given up 38 points. … We’ve been opportunistic a little defensively, but we’ve gotta play better.” Go no further than the week two matchup against Oklahoma State to find where many of the defensive issues lie. The Cowboys had 636 total yards, including 436 passing yards from freshman quarterback Wes Lunt — a Big 12 conference freshman record — and four touchdowns. Receiver Tracy Moore lit up Arizona for eight receptions, 106 yards and four touchdowns as well. “Not giving up as many big plays,” Rodriguez said, citing what needs to be fixed. “We gotta get off blocks better, we didn’t recognize some things that were happening.”
FOOTBALL notes, 10 Larry Hogan and Colin Prenger/Arizona Daily Wildcat
LINEBACKER JAKE FISCHER (left) and running back Ka’Deem Carey (right) have been two of Arizona’s top players so far this season, and without them the Wildcats probably wouldn’t be 2-0.

Sports • WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012
Flowers’ transition from safety to linebacker appears seamless thus far. He looked like he was struggling in week one in his new digs, but he has since adjusted and is third on the team in tackles and first in sacks.
Rankings from page 1
5. Austin Hill, receiver
Season totals: 12 receptions, 263 yards, 1 touchdown Week two: 5 receptions, 124 yards Hill somehow flies under the radar, but he might be the Wildcats’ best receiving weapon on offense. His acrobatic catches the last two weeks have carried Arizona’s passing game.
6. Kyle Quinn, center
Season totals: 2 games played It’s tough to judge offensive lineman because of the lacking statistics readily available, but the line has by and large protected Scott well. Quinn is the leader of the line, and in the middle of it, so he probably deserves the most credit. Also, most of Carey’s four touchdown runs have come because of holes opened up in the middle of the defense.
7. Marquis Flowers, linebacker
Season totals: 19 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2.5 tackles for loss, 2 pass breakups, 2 pass deflections Week two: 9 tackles, 2 pass breakups
8. Jonathan McKnight, cornerback
Season totals: 7 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass deflection, 1 touchdown Week two: 4 tackles, 1 interception, 48 yards, 1 touchdown At cornerback, when you don’t hear a player’s name as much that usually means he’s doing his minimum job and shutting down the opposing receiver. McKnight’s name wasn’t mentioned much in week one, but in week two he made his presence known. His 48-yard interception return for touchdown might have won the game for the UA against Oklahoma State.
10. Tra’Mayne Bondurant, safety
Season totals: 13 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 pass breakup, 1 pass deflection Week two: 10 tackles, 2 tackles for loss Easily the Wildcats most impactful defensive player in the last half of 2011, Bondurant is staying relevant on defense again. At the “spur” position, he is asked to essentially play both linebacker and safety, and that’s helped him disrupt the backfield. If not for Bondurant’s pass rush on OSU’s Wes Lunt, the quarterback might never have forced the throw that was picked off by McKnight.
Honorable mention: Dan Buckner (receiver), John Bonano (kicker)

UA women’s tennis gears up for fall season Evan Rosenfeld Arizona Daily Wildcat
Arizona Daily Wildcat file photo KIM STUBBE is one of Arizona’s top returning players and is expected to make a big impact this year. “She is a terrific athlete,” head coach Vicky Maes said, “and she will really move up the rankings this year.”
Ever since head coach Vicky Maes replaced Brad Dancer as the University of Arizona women’s tennis coach 12 years ago, she has constantly produced a solid lineup each season that has helped Arizona transform from a team struggling to stay above a .500 record to a serious contender in the Pac-12 conference. The season before Maes arrived as head coach, the UA suffered through a 10-12 losing season. The Wildcats bounced back to 12-11 in Maes’ first year and, since she was hired in 2000, the Wildcats have compiled a 118-115 overall record. “Our expectations have gone up year after year as our team has gotten stronger and stronger,” Maes said. “We have been able to steadily move up the rankings over the past four years and we look to do that again this spring.”
Looking to lead the team this season are juniors Lacey Smyth and Kim Stubbe. The fall season begins with the Riviera ITA Championships in Los Angeles, Calif., from Sept. 29 to Sept. 30. “Lacey is a great asset to our program, in every way,” Maes said. “She just loves being on the court and she is a master of preparation.” Smyth played the No. 1 spot in the singles lineup last year and complied an impressive record of 14-11, along with a 16-7 doubles record. Smyth carried the team with key wins over nationally ranked players such as Washington’s Denise Dy (No. 11), Arizona State’s Jacqueline Cako (No. 15), University of North Carolina’s Zoe De Bruycker (No. 28), and North Carolina State’s Joelle Kissell (No. 46). Stubbe, a native of Belgium, played last year mostly in the No.

Cohen talks soccer career, UA choice IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
The Arizona soccer team is off to a successful start with three wins in six games. It’s a far cry from 2011, when the Wildcats won just one of 19 games. One of the biggest changes from last season is the addition of freshman defender Sheridan Cohen. A Tucson native and graduate from Catalina Foothills High School, Cohen has played in all six games and has contributed one assist and two shots on goal. Cohen spoke to the Arizona Daily Wildcat about her college transition, her career aspirations, the funniest part about being a Wildcat and more. DW: How did you get started playing soccer? Cohen: I started playing soccer when I was about 3 years old. I played a lot of different sports as a child, but soccer just seemed to be
the one that I wanted to stick with. What other positions did you try before becoming a defender and what led you to playing the position? When I played recreational soccer I was a forward. When I started playing more competitive soccer, at about 9 years old, was when I was turned into a defender. My coach played me as a defender and ever since then I have always played defense. What made you decide to get involved in the Olympic Development Program? I decided to get involved in ODP to play at a more elite level in soccer. It gave me the opportunity to be coached by great coaches and learn a lot about the game. Can you describe memorable experiences from ODP? A memorable experience from ODP was probably at hold over camp in California when some of the girls and I tried to come up with a flash mob dance. It ended up
being a complete fail. What are some memorable experiences from your high school and club soccer careers? I had great experiences in both club and high school soccer. In club I will always remember winning state and being the first girls team in 19 years from Tucson to win state. High school soccer was so much fun, and I created so many amazing memories over those four years. Winning state three years in a row was a definite highlight. Why did you choose to come to Arizona? I chose to come to Arizona because I wanted to be a part of a team that changed something. I wanted to have an impact on the team and have the chance to change the team. I also love the campus and was raised in Tucson, so I have always been a Wildcat fan. How has your transition been from high school athlete to college athlete?
Daily WildCat We’re Super Classy
The transition has actually been better than I expected. The level of play in college is much faster than that of high school, but it doesn’t take long to get used to. What are your aspirations for the future either career wise or with soccer? I would like to become some sort of a doctor. Right now I am thinking about becoming a dermatologist or pediatrician, but I am keeping my options open. What has been the funniest moment so far being part of the Arizona soccer team? One funny moment was when the coaches and Shannon Heinzler played a prank on the freshmen when we were in Pinetop for camp. We were getting talked to by the coaches, and it was really hot in the bedroom so they opened the door to get air in from outside, and all of a sudden Shannon burst through the door in a full gorilla suit. It caught all of us completely off guard.
What is something interesting that most people wouldn’t know about? I am really superstitious. When it was state playoffs in high school, every year I had to have the same routine, wear the same headband and bow in my hair, same sports bra, and basically just keep everything the same way, or else I would freak out.

Women’s cross country rises in national rankings LUKE DAVIS Arizona Daily Wildcat
The UA women’s cross-country team has climbed to No. 12 in the latest U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association poll. The team entered the season ranked No. 14, but after a strong third place performance at the George Kyte Classic in Flagstaff on Sept. 1, the team has moved up two spots in the polls. The George Kyte Classic has been the Wildcats’ only meet
from page 7
4 spot for singles, earning a remarkable 12-6 record while defeating UCLA’s nationally ranked Skylar Morton (No. 116). In addition, Stubbe thrived in doubles, boasting a 13-4 record. “We have already seen what Lacey can do, but I know we will be able to rely a lot on Kim Stubbe as well,” Maes said. “She is a terrific athlete and she will really move up the rankings this year.” Despite their impressive statistics last year, Smyth and Stubbe still look to improve their game for the upcoming season. “I plan to overcome my mental game,” Smyth said. “I am very hard on myself and don’t give myself much slack. I think it hurts me sometimes to take things so seriously.” While Smyth focuses on her mental game, Stubbe is determined to improve her team skills.
so far. Junior Melanie McGrath led the way for the women’s team, as she finished third in the 5,000-meter race with a time of 17 minutes and 6 seconds. Stephanie Bulder, Erin Menefee, Hannah Moen and Molly Callahan finished 10th, 15th, 17th and 21st, respectively. Head cross-country coach James Li said he believes this women’s team is capable of finishing with a rank in the top 10. Last season the women’s team made it to nationals, but finished ranked No. 19.
“Last year we did well in doubles matches,” Stubbe said. “I feel that this year, we have to do even better. Winning doubles has to be a necessity. The team just has to contribute and be there for each other. Everyone knows what they have to do.” After losing two key seniors at the end of last season, Maes wants to incorporate fresh talent and competition into the Wildcats’ lineup. “I think we lost some crucial players to graduation last year in the forms of Natasha Marks and Sarah Landsman who played the No. 2 and 3 positions.” Stubbe said. “This year, we’ve got great replacements in the form of two freshmen and a junior transfer from South Carolina State.” With a new lineup adding depth to the Wildcats, Arizona looks to be tough competition come spring. “Everyone is motivated and excited right now but there will be times when fatigue or other obstacles kick in,” Maes said. “That’s when we will really need to maintain focus.”
UCLA BIG MAN Joshua Smith and the Bruins traveled to China this summer. The rest of the Pac-12 may soon follow.

“There’s been a point for about a month where he’s been contemplating it,” Rodriguez said. “He hadn’t practiced since the from page 6 first week of August so it’s been a couple months since it’s been an issue.” Rodriguez still expects Hankins to be a part of the program and anticipates Hankins trying to finish his degree.

BEIJING — Somewhere around the sixth or seventh photograph, Joshua Smith struggled to keep that big smile on his face. It was still early in the UCLA basketball team’s recent swing through China, a stretch of three exhibitions in seven days, and the Bruins had already grown accustomed to drawing attention. At the Great Wall and the Forbidden City, on the streets and in shopping malls, people crowded around. A large group that had been celebrating some or other occasion with bottles of beer approached Smith during lunch at a popular restaurant. He smiled and shook hands and picked up several ladies who wanted a snapshot in his arms. “You’ve got to do it,” the 6-foot-10 center said. “To be nice and not be rude.” The scene played out perfectly for Pac-12 Conference officials who came along on the trip, interested in something more than good manners. As Commissioner Larry Scott put it, “This is a first step in what I hope will be a long journey.” In an era of mega-conferences — generating mega-revenue — the Pac-12 simply cannot match rivals such as the Southeastern and Big Ten when it comes to rabid fans. But with schools dotted along the Pacific Rim, it can pursue a different sort of consumer. Sport business experts say the conference and its new television network are well-situated to establish a foothold in China, broadcasting games and selling merchandise to an enormous, sports-hungry market. “It’s a land grab over there,” said Paul Swangard, managing director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of
Oregon. “You have this built-in population of fans, and basketball seems to be one sport that has a tremendous following.” The NBA has been working for decades to cultivate fans in Asia, signing deals with corporate sponsors and opening offices in Beijing and Shanghai, the cities where UCLA played last month. An estimated 300 million Chinese play basketball. That translated into 10 million people watching weekly NBA telecasts on a government-run network last season. An additional 52 million followed the league through social networks. “They’re a long-term partner,” said Heidi Ueberroth, president of NBA International. “We’ve worked with them on virtually every level of the game.” The Pac-12 is in position to share the market if only because, as Swangard said, “you cannot ignore geography.” Thousands of Chinese students attend Pac12 universities, so people in the Far East are familiar with the schools. UCLA’s visit represented a trial run in what could become an annual exchange between the Pac-12 and the Federation of University Sports of China (FUSC), with teams crisscrossing the Pacific Ocean. Basketball is only part of the potential collaboration. The conference — strong in Olympic sports — might find an audience for volleyball, water polo and gymnastics. If deals can be negotiated with Chinese television, the Pac-12 has a wealth of broadcast content to send abroad. “As the landscape for Chinese media changes, I think there’s an ability to profit,” Swangard said. “You can sell those games to distributors in China and there’s not a tremendous amount of additional cost.”
