Pro-choice med students Twitter educate on abortion laws study BY MAGGIE DRIVER The Daily Wildcat
The UA Medical Students for Choice club is one of many Arizona organizations working to give women and students opportunities for medical health regarding abortions, despite restrictions.
Medical Students for Choice is a national nonprofit organization that seeks to include abortion in the curriculum of medical school’s. The UA chapter of the organization is working to educate medical students about the restrictions regarding the medical practice of abortion and the laws surrounding it, particularly the
legal consequences of the UA football stadium remodeling in the mid-’70s, according to Katie Hartl, co-coordinator of UA Medical Students for Choice and second year medical student at the UA College of Medicine. In 1974, the university was offered $5.5 million by the

UA professors are preparing for a course that will utilize information based on a recent Twitter study that tracked student’s dietary habits. Last year, 50 UA students participated in a study that required them to tweet everything they consumed, who they were with at the time and where they were over a period of three consecutive days. Students would use a variety of hashtags that would then allow researchers to analyze associations between them. For example, a student who had breakfast at Starbucks could tweet: “Had breakfast at Starbucks. #beverage Had a latte with #friends,” said Donella Ly, a graduate research assistant on the study who is now a UA alumna. From there, Ly said researchers would pull information from those in the study who used those hashtags and start analyzing dietary behavior patterns. “This was more of a feasibility study to test whether or not we were able to use Twitter to capture information about dietary behavior,”
UA celebrates Constitution A panel of law experts discussed recent U.S. Supreme Court cases in front of an audience of about 100 people on Monday afternoon. The event, at the James E. Rogers College of Law, was the 15th Annual Constitution Day Supreme Court Review, held to celebrate the birthday of the Constitution of the United States. Panelists Clint Bolick, vice president for litigation at the Goldwater Institute, Melissa Murray, professor of law from the University of California at Berkley, and U.S. District Judge Neil Wake discussed their opinions on four cases. The cases — American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, United States v. Windsor, Hollingsworth v. Perry and Shelby County v. Holder

Does Monday’s Navy Yard shooting change your perspective on gun laws?
“No, I think there should be very strict background checks. I’ve been convinced of that since the beginning and really ever since the Gabby Giffords shooting and even before that. I don’t think anyone should be owning a semi-automatic gun, nobody needs that.” — Anna Menzl, molecular and cellular biology junior
“America is so far past gun control it’s ridiculous. There are so many guns in society right now that even if you made an anti-gun law and took away all the registered weapons, you’d still have incidents like this every single day.” — Matthew Ramsey, biochemistry freshman
“I think it’s important to respect the Second Amendment. I think there needs to be better background checks done before people are able to buy a gun. I think that would prevent a lot of what’s been happening lately in the media, but I’m still for owning guns.” — Angelica Laffer, animal science senior
“My view is that automatic guns in the U.S. are basically unnecessary … I think we could use regulations, personally.” — Jesse Lee, pre-business freshman

HOROSCOPES Today’s birthday (09/17/13): With power comes responsibility. Both are available this year, and they arise socially. Participate. Contribute time and energy generously to the ones you love for magnified returns. Build your nest egg with persistent savings. Share skills and knowledge. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — Clarify your direction with friends. An idealist needs to be held to facts. That path is a dead end. Your words inspire others to take action. Get a flash of scientific inspiration. Phone home. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 7 — Conversing with friends clears up a misunderstanding. Do the homework. Provide motivation. A book reveals brilliant insight. Play, but remember your budget. Glamour disguises a few flaws. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is an 8 — Career matters most now. Study recent developments. Get farther together than any of you would have alone. Edit later. Make a spiritual connection. Set lofty goals. It takes patience. Keep a secret and gain respect.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 7 — Your friends encourage you to try something interesting. Set long range goals, including fun and travel. Your savings are growing. Take only carefully calculated risks. Accept encouragement. You could just go. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — Get into the competition. Count coins and pay bills. Figure the costs. Discuss shared finances. Listen carefully, even if you don’t fully understand. Write down what a wealthy elder told you. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 9 — It’s easier to delegate.

What do you find most attractive in a guy or girl? Honestly, I’d have to say teeth and smile. If you take care of yourself, hygienewise, take care of your teeth, clean pearly-whites. I think that’s one of the most attractive things. A good smile, that frames the face really well.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 9 — These days can be potentially quite prosperous. Keep the goal in mind. Also fix something at home to increase efficiency. Handle a household emergency. The more you learn, the farther you’ll go. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 6 — A startling revelation provokes. You’re getting more sensitive; this phase feels exceptionally powerful and confident. Wax poetic. Be the brains behind the operation. Consider consequences. Record your dreams today.
What about crooked smiles? What do you think of those? It’s more about how you present yourself to people. If you hide your teeth, hide your smile, I think it kind of shows you’re closed off. If you have a big smile, you’re always happy — I think that really shows through.
Senators emerge as legal pot fans MCLATCHY TRIBUNE
WASHINGTON — King County Sheriff John Urquhart says that the war on drugs has failed and that legalizing marijuana is the way to go, which might be a good thing in his case. In less than nine months, he’ll have 61 retail pot shops operating in his county, the most in Washington state. But when marijuana issues got a long-awaited airing last Tuesday on Capitol Hill, Urquhart told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he fears the state’s 334 new pot stores will be inviting targets for armed robbers: The shops will be forced to do business only in cash, because federal law prevents drug-related businesses from opening bank accounts.

“I am simply asking that the federal government allow banks to work with legitimate marijuana businesses who are licensed under state law,” said Urquhart, a 37-year police officer who was elected sheriff last year. The request drew a sympathetic response from Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who said he wants to make sure that state-licensed pot businesses can use armored vehicles to transport their money as well. “I don’t want to see a shootout somewhere,” Leahy said. While the Senate is not considering any legalization bills this year, pot backers are still giddy about their progress, with polls showing growing numbers of Americans now wanting
Do you think that can be a veil? Someone might have a really good smile, but be a recluse inside. Of course, but there are times when you can tell whether or not the smile meets their eyes. If that’s the case, then you can kind of see that it’s fake. But there are always exceptions.
to end the national prohibition against marijuana. They’re claiming the addition of a major ally after Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain last week told constituents at a town hall meeting in Tucson, “Maybe we should legalize.” And they count the influential Leahy among their fans, pleased that he’s urging the federal government to stop prosecuting possession cases involving small amounts of pot. McCain and Leahy represent two of the 10 states targeted Monday by the Marijuana Policy Project for full legalization by 2017, along with California, Maine, Nevada, Hawaii, Maryland, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. The group is banking on Alaska to go first, in 2014.

smile presents you? I think I use it a lot, so I hope that people think I’m a generally happy and friendly person. Do you consciously smile at strangers, or is that weird? I don’t think it’s weird.

What goes through your mind when that happens? It’s generally just, you know, you think, “Hey, they have a really nice smile. They seem really nice or really friendly.” You kind of get a little insight into the beginnings of how they seem to be. What does that say about someone who doesn’t smile back at you? I like to give them the benefit of the doubt and think they’re having a really bad day. But sometimes it just might tell you that they’re not too friendly of a person. Anything else about smiles? Show it off as much as you can. Be friendly — when you open yourself up to people they open themselves up, too.

Ly said. “Our findings were that it is an acceptable and usable platform to capture dietary behaviors related to eating.” For the study, researchers used the Eat It Tweet It iPhone app, which was created through a collaboration between the UA and New Mexico State University. The app makes it easier to use Twitter and choose existing hashtags to describe what a person is eating, where they’re eating it and with whom they’re eating it. When the hashtags were accessed at the end of the study, they were compiled into a database. From there, researchers could analyze how often tweets occurred together. With the help of the UA computer science department, they created heat maps and other graphs showing the relationships between hashtags, according to Melanie Hingle, an assistant professor of nutritional sciences and researcher on the study. The study was originally developed for a course that will most likely be offered next fall, called Systems Approach to Obesity Prevention. The course is about different factors that contribute to the development of obesity. Students will use the Twitter app during the first week to raise awareness about how eating is influenced by where a person is and who they’re with, Hingle said. However, Hingle said she believes this will extend beyond the classroom. “It’s going to have a lot of other uses,” Hingle said. “We’re working with colleagues across campus to leverage this tool to answer other questions about dietary behaviors.” Hingle said she would like to analyze greater amounts of data moving forward as well as patterns that stretch across Twitter feeds that are not only limited to the UA. “My goal is to use the information we find here to design better programs to promote healthy eating,” Hingle said. “If we understand what it is that motivates people and what drives people to eat certain things, than that helps us design programs that are going to be more in alignment with people’s motivations.”

13 dead in Navy Yard shooting McClatchy Tribune
WASHINGTON — Law enforcement officials said the death toll in the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard has risen to 13, including the shooter, whom officials identified as 34-year-old Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas. Three other people were being treated at a local hospital and were expected to fully recover, hospital officials said. District of Columbia police say they are no longer looking for other gunmen in the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday morning, indicating that the victims of the attack were all killed by a single shooter. Federal officials have identified Alexis, a government civilian contractor who was new to the Washington, D.C., area, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation. He may have used the identification badge of another person to gain access to the base. Federal officials say Alexis was arrested in Fort Worth on Sept. 5, 2010, on suspicion of discharging a weapon. The Tarrant County district attorney did not prosecute. The three victims, including a police officer, were brought to MedStar Washington Hospital Center. In a news conference, Dr. Janis Orlowski, the center’s chief medical officer, said the chances of their survival were good.

Music, games vital for athletic events BY STEPHANIE ELLIOTT The Daily Wildcat
old letters across the back of the new ZonaZoo shirts read, “ZonaZoo STAYS the entire game.” It’s clear that the athletics department and the ZonaZoo crew are trying to send a message, but that alone won’t convince students to stay. To engage both the diehard sports fanatics and the casual fans, who attend the games primarily for the social experience, the student section leaders are trying to make the ZonaZoo experience more interactive. “Arizona Athletics has partnered with ZonaZoo,” said James Francis, the senior associate director of athletics, “and [they] collaboratively have made improvements.” Mario Ziccarelli, the executive director of ZonaZoo and a senior studying Italian and psychology, said some of these improvements include a kiss cam and an effort to play more current music during breaks in the action. Ziccarelli said ZonaZoo is trying to feature something new at each game to keep students excited and interested in what’s coming. He said there have been $500 giveaways and there will be a debut of a new ZonaZoo flag. Interactive activities and music may not matter to the most passionate of sports fans, but they can still help to contribute to a better overall atmosphere at the games and make students feel like they are a part of something important. Benjamin Berger, a religious studies junior, said ZonaZoo’s efforts are not going unnoticed. Even though Berger said he has never left a game early and shows up to basketball games approximately “six hours in advance to get into the front row,” he said, “one of the things that probably made people stay at the football games was the $500 giveaway.” There are a lot of students, like Berger, who will come and stay at sporting events just for the love of the game, but there aren’t enough of them to fill the entire ZonaZoo section. Making the games interactive for the less passionate sports fans, who go for the experience of the crowd and just to be at a game with friends, is the best way to keep them there. Ziccarelli said ZonaZoo is “constantly working and brainstorming new interactive ideas for students,” which should create an environment that keeps everyone engaged. ZonaZoo is trying to transform the game day experience into something worth coming for on its own. Judging by how full the student section was at the end of the last two football games, it seems to be working.
Secular group represents minority BY JESSICA DRAPER The Daily Wildcat
n a nation with a Christian majority, secular communities continue to organize and grow. The UA recently became home to one of those flourishing groups: the Secular Student Alliance. Founded in 2012, the SSA is the only club specifically for nonreligious students who identify as atheists, agnostics, humanists, skeptics and freethinkers recognized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. With 85 members at the start of its second year, the SSA has attracted an untapped student demographic that needs representation. While there are almost 30 clubs on campus for Christian students, groups that serve the interests of nonreligious students have generally been absent. The trend toward secularism is on the rise. According to a Pew Research Center survey from October 2012, almost 20 percent of all U.S. adults say they are not affiliated with any religion, a 5 percent increase from 2007.
in providing support specific to the needs of students. Even with the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans increasing — or the “nones” — “they are still a minority on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods,” Lacey said. “Often, there are unpleasant consequences of being in a minority, and having a campus club that specifically supports that minority can reduce stress associated with being an ‘outsider.’” Stephen Uhl, a former Catholic priest and theologian who earned his PhD in psychology upon leaving the church, is currently one of FreeThought Arizona’s directors. “In the important mindexpanding years of college, students should enjoy the freedom to explore minority or new ideas without being threatened by the conventional wisdom of the majority,” Uhl said in response to the formation of the SSA at the UA. If students feel alone, he added, they are less likely to explore these new and unconventional ideas regarding nontheism. This is precisely why the SSA exists. “The SSA is largely important for students to explore beliefs that they have not previously considered, find a sense of security in the case that they are changing their religious
It’s clear that the athletics department and the ZonaZoo crew are trying to send a message, but that alone won’t convince students to stay.
Currently, one-third of adults under the age of 30 in the United States identify as religiously unaffiliated. With 13 million self-identified atheists and agnostics and 33 million people who are unaffiliated with religion in the U.S., it’s important for secular communities to organize and gain the representation that, until recently, has been nonexistent. “Diversity of opinion on campus is crucial,” said Hester Oberman, a professor in the religious studies department. “There should be a Secular Student Alliance in order to represent the whole spectrum from belief to disbelief, from fundamental theism to atheism on campus.” As a national organization, the SSA now has 395 affiliate groups across the country. In addition to secular student groups, local communities have also developed organizations to provide necessary support for nonreligious people. FreeThought Arizona and Tucson Atheists are two local groups that provide atheists and other nontheists with resources, support and, most importantly, a sense of community. Donald Lacey, state director for American Atheists and organizer of the Tucson Atheists group, says that despite the local offcampus organizations that support nontheists, a campus group is critical
identity and connect with others who have similar [or] differing values to validate and think critically about their life perspectives,” said Jennifer DiLallo, a member of the SSA and a junior studying speech, language, and hearing sciences and Spanish. “Such a community is essential for the campus to develop a richer understanding across religious, spiritual [and] secular lines,” she said. Rebecca Coffman, another member of the SSA and a nutritional sciences junior, agreed. “There was no group that celebrated its secularity as its purpose, a safe place for those seeking a religion-free environment to share thoughts and ideas,” Coffman said, “a supportive environment for this particular minority to be able to find others of like mind, to share challenges and receive advice for dealing with discrimination. That was missing and it was sorely needed.” Though the SSA at the UA is still new, it is already filling a void and creating the opportunity for students to explore ideas outside of mainstream thought. — Jessica Draper is a sophomore studying political science.

S in STEM: President Barack Obama has led the charge to encourage college students to enroll in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors, citing high-paying jobs in these fields that currently lack enough qualified applicants. However, for science majors, the hype isn’t as good as it seems. According to a new study, engineering majors are among the most likely to find high-paying jobs after college, but biology and chemistry majors only earn an average starting salary of $27,893 and $31,070 respectively. The numbers are even worse at the UA — biology majors earn an average of $26,540 according to a 2012 job placement report from Career Services. In contrast, communication majors received an average offer of $29,930.

Even as these tragedies continue to mount, only a few states have managed to enact tougher gun control laws since the shooting in Newtown, Conn. States like Minnesota, New Mexico and Oregon are current target states for people like Mark Glaze, the executive director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, because gun legislation came close to passing in those states last year. Common sense changes like comprehensive background checks have been harder to pass than they should have been. It will be interesting to see if the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, which left at least 13 people dead, will shake up the debate.
Tension in Korea: Jointly operated factories in a North Korean industrial park reopened Monday after 166 days of inactivity caused by tension between North and South Korea. The conflict was sparked by the North’s repeated tests of medium and long range missiles despite United Nations sanctions, despite condemnation from long-time North Korean ally China. Regularly scheduled joint military drills between South Korea and the United States increased tensions, and for a while the world sat on the edge of its seat, hoping the situation didn’t spiral out of control. Now we know that the North Koreans weren’t serious about their threats and never posed any real military threat.
Syria compromise: Vladimir Putin may be more politically cunning than people give him credit for. In an op-ed published in the New York Times last week, Putin pleaded directly with the American public to urge our government not to launch a military strike against Syria. “No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage,” Putin wrote. Any attack on Syria without a U.N. mandate would be considered illegal under international law, and it’s a perfectly legitimate point that we cannot expect other countries to respect the United Nations if the United States only works with it so long as it’s convenient.

POLICE BEAT BY ALISON DORF
The Daily Wildcat
When black tar just won’t do
Two non UA-affiliated individuals were arrested outside of the Arizona Health Sciences Library on Wednesday at approximately 4:50 p.m., after officers from the University of Arizona Police Department were advised of a man and woman walking around looking into cars and at bike racks. Dispatch also said the woman had bolt cutters sticking out of her bag, and police aides in the area reported observing the man and woman attempting to change their clothes near the bike racks in front of the library. Officers made contact with the couple. The woman had a warrant from UAPD for failing to appear on a previous traffic offense. The man had two warrants from the Tucson Police Department for failing to appear on charges of domestic assault and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were both placed under arrest. When searching the man, one of the officers found a loaded syringe containing a black liquid substance, a plastic seal containing 0.6 grams of a black tar-like substance, which the officer believed to be heroin, a plastic eye case and a small mirror with white residue. Inside the eye case was a metal spoon with a Q-tip and black tar-like substance in the basin, a syringe with a bent needle and two additional plastic seals containing white residue, as well as a single prescription pill. The man told the officer he did not know what the pill was, only that a friend gave it to him for back pain. The case and loaded syringe were sent for further testing. When searching the woman, another officer found a metal marijuana grinder, a broken metal smoking pipe and a small tin containing drug paraphernalia. Both of them were taken to Pima County Jail and booked.
Rolling into trouble
Two UA students were diverted to the Dean of Students for possession of marijuana in their residence hall on Wednesday, at 10:40 p.m. At 10:22 p.m., officers responded to the residence hall in reference to the smell of marijuana coming from one of the rooms. An officer knocked on the door and a man answered. He identified himself as the resident of the room and allowed the officers to enter. There were two other men inside the room. Officers informed the men, all of whom were UA students, that they smelled marijuana coming from the room. One of the officers asked them if they had any marijuana or paraphernalia. The resident of the room said he had a grinder and gave it to the officer. He and another student admitted to smoking marijuana off campus. One of the students provided the officer with three packages of rolling papers and an empty container for marijuana. The third student in the room said he had smoked marijuana in the past, but had not smoked since he came to campus. The resident said the grinder belonged to him, and the student said the rolling papers and container belonged to him. They were diverted through the Dean of Students for possession of drug paraphernalia.

BONDING OVER HOCKEY Wildcat hockey players Alex Vazquez and Alex O’Dea share a friendship that dates back to early playing days
Blowouts have told us little about UA
The Daily Wildcat
ccasional heated disputes end in laughter within 10 minutes. With frequent ribbing and steadfast loyalty toward one another, the relationship between new Wildcat hockey players Alex Vazquez and Alex O’Dea is as close to brotherhood as can be, without the actual blood relation. Apart from 2010, both 21-year-old freshmen have played on the same youth and junior teams every year since they were 12. Vazquez and O’Dea, who are also roommates, have lived together since age 16, besides the one season of junior hockey that they weren’t in matching sweaters. Vazquez even said he has lived with O’Dea longer than with his actual brother. Growing up 15 minutes apart from each other in Michigan, the two met at a Troy Youth Hockey Association tryout. While Vazquez and O’Dea may be best friends now, that was not the case following their first meeting on the ice. In the opening shift of the tryout, Vazquez hit O’Dea from behind, igniting a feud between them, that lasted about half of the season. However, in the following year they started to become close, according to Vazquez. “We both had the same desire, I think. We wanted it more than other people on the team and had better work ethics than everyone else,” O’Dea said. “I think that attracted us to each other a little bit.” Vazquez and O’Dea began their junior league hockey careers on the Yellowstone Quake Junior-A team in 2009 under current Arizona head coach Sean Hogan. The succeeding year they parted ways — O’Dea went to play a full season with the Little Caesars U-18 squad while Vazquez appeared in 22 games as a Quake and 14 for the Topeka Roadrunners. The duo reunited on the Capital District Selects in 2011 and the Nepean Raiders and South Shore Kings in 2012. O’Dea is a forward and Vazquez is a defenseman. As freshmen, Vazquez and O’Dea are most excited about coming to Arizona as a package because they can cover for one another on and off the ice. O’Dea, an honors student, said he and Vazquez will be pushing each other to attend classes and excel academically. Over the summer, the duo prepared for upcoming seasons by skating and working out as often possible. O’Dea said he and Vazquez are one another’s workout trainers, which causes them to butt heads at times.

Club welcomes familiar coach
The Daily Wildcat After struggling to live up to its usual standards last season, the Arizona club baseball team replaced its head coach with one of its own. Launched in 2007, the UA club baseball program has made it to the National Club Baseball Association World Series three times, but finished behind UC San Diego and ASU last year in the Southern Pacific East Conference and did not qualify for regionals. “I feel like [the team] kind of screwed around a little bit too much,” said sophomore catcher and co-captain Tim Beaubien. “We didn’t take things seriously, it was kind of just thrown together. I think that if we had really tried, and had goals we could have gotten there, but we kind of just came to practice and screwed around.” Senior second baseman J.C. Conrad, the team’s other captain, said the players were too relaxed because of the last coach, Louie Davila. “We weren’t really driven to do anything well,” Conrad said. “We had the talent, just didn’t work hard enough at it.” After last year’s disappointing season the team selected Ben Zenner to be its new coach. Zenner, the club’s president, has played baseball for 16 years, three with the Wildcats.
cole malham/The Daily Wildcat
UA CLUB BASEBALL holds tryouts at Kino Sports Complex on Sept. 10.
Though Zenner is set to graduate in December, the team voted to have him coach during the 2013-14 school year to try and return to regionals, after going 11-11 last year, 5-7 in conference play. Zenner said being a coach brings a new set of duties. “Someone would have a plan for me,” Zenner said. “But now, you know, I have to create
practice plans. I have to keep everyone organized, making sure they’re paying their dues, making sure they’re coming to practice, and notifying everybody when team events are.” Last week may have only been the first practice of the new year, but already the team is noticing an improvement under Zenner’s coaching.
“I feel like we worked harder this practice than we did all last year already, in terms of getting stuff done and just [being] organized,” Beaubien said. “[Ben] has a plan … and he’s just very structured, and organized, and has good leadership qualities.” As the practices for the new season begin, the team is adjusting to its new coach and the changes to its roster. “We graduated a lot of seniors, so this team this year is going to be a very young and new team,” Zenner said. “A lot of new guys are filling in roles they’ve never played before. So I think there’s a lot of excitement surrounding this team in terms of, you know, a lot of opportunities for everyone.” Both captains are confident that under Zenner’s leadership, the team will be able to return to Las Vegas this year for regionals. “I’m looking forward to just seeing the incoming freshmen, seeing what kind of talent we have coming this year,” Zenner said. “And then I’m looking forward to seeing how our returning players respond to a new team. Personally I believe we can get to regionals again this year, so I just want to see how our team responds to those goals.” — Follow Brittney Klewer @BrittneyKlewer
ormer Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green’s rant at a 2006 press conference earned a spot in the pantheon of famous sports quotes: “The Bears are who we thought they were!” It appears we almost always feel like we can judge how good teams are, starting with the preseason conference and national rankings. So when one team upsets another, it is based on our perception of who was supposed to win. Arizona opened the season with three blowouts. But did we learn anything, other than that Tucson and the ZonaZoo don’t like “gimme” games? “We can only play who is in front of us,” senior quarterback B.J. Denker said. “Obviously, we were expected to win these games but we still had to come and play. Now we are ready to get in to Pac-12 play.” It’s fun to joke about whether Pima Community College could beat UNLV, or that Arizona opened the season with four bye weeks, but do the Wildcats’ wins over those teams tell us there’s improvement? Against UTSA, Denker threw for a career high 158 passing yards, just 10 less than his total yardage through the air in both the NAU and UNLV games. So were the concerns over Denker’s throwing ability overblown? After an unimpressive showing last year, the UA defense already has six interceptions in the 2013 season, compared to 12 over 13 games in 2012. Does this mean the Desert Swarm is back? “This was a better team this week compared to UNLV,” junior running back Ka’Deem Carey said after the UTSA game. “I feel like our schedule is getting tougher and tougher, but that was a good squad out there. They came out, they were ready to hit and they didn’t back down. I felt like it was a good game for us to get ready for Washington.” ASU came into the season as a favorite to win the Pac-12 South. The hype was based on going 8-5 last year and a large number of returning starters this season, but their only win over a decent team in 2012 was over an 8-5 UA squad. ASU was gifted a win over then No. 20 Wisconsin last week — aided by officiating that was, at best, inept but they tested themselves and showed that they can play against a ranked team. The UA is just outside the top 25 in both polls, 32nd in both, so maybe they’re good? The answer to those questions is, of course, “who knows?” We don’t have enough information. Arizona’s victims were basically FCS teams. NAU literally plays in the lower division, UNLV is a program in shambles, which lost to NAU last year and had the look of a team that hasn’t improved, and the UTSA program is in its third year. Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said the line between BCS teams and mid-majors is blurring, as is the line between FBS and FCS. Still, it is very much there. NAU, UNLV and UTSA are all at least a step below Arizona. Now it’s time for the Wildcats to face more recognized football programs. Are the Wildcats good or did they look good because they faced light competition? What did we learn from Arizona’s nonconference schedule about their 2013 squad? Nothing, except that they can easily beat teams below their caliber.

THE DAILY WILDCAT • 7
Transfer talent provides new level of swim energy EVAN ROSENFELD
The Daily Wildcat In collegiate sports, transferring to a different school can provide studentathletes with a clean slate and a new environment. This year, Arizona’s men and women’s swim teams welcomed four transfer athletes from three Florida colleges: juniors Elizabeth Pepper from Florida State, Lauren Neidigh and Austin Ringquist from the University of Florida and Brad Tandy from Indian River State College. “It seems like [transferring] is becoming more ingrained in the culture of collegiate athletics,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “I think this sport is so demanding that if you’re not happy, it’s really tough. I think we’ve got a really good fit with our kids and our staff and I think everyone is pretty happy. We are training hard.” During her two years at FSU, Pepper qualified twice for the NCAA Championships and remains the current school record holder in the 200m-butterfly. She also excels in middistance freestyle events and will be expected to provide a strong butterfly section for the Wildcats’ medley relay team. Neidigh announced her decision in late May and trained at the Bolles School in Florida to get back in shape for the upcoming season before competing in the U.S. Open at the end of the summer. The Orange Park, Fla., native was a 200y-butterfly specialist coming out of high school, but was utilized primarily in 500m-freestyle and 400m-IM races during her two years as a Gator. Neidigh showed improvement at

Florida, going from 4:51 to 4:48 in the 500m-freestyle event and dropping six seconds (4:22 to 4:16) in the 400m-IM. She said that she hopes to continue improving here and is eager to help the UA achieve. “I definitely see the program going far this year,” Neidigh said. “We were top five in NCAAs last year and I believe we can do that again. I just want to make sure I’m helping out and contributing in any way I can.” Connection to coaches and teammates is vital to transfer students. “Arizona’s professional coaching staff and dedicated teammates were really appealing to me,” Ringquist said. “I feel more comfortable here and am looking forward to having a productive year.” Ringquist qualified for the Olympic Trials in the 200m-IM and 200m backstroke events and said he is excited for this year’s upcoming competition. When asked about why he chose the UA, Tandy, a native of South Africa, said
that something about it just felt right. “Something stuck out here,” Tandy explained. “I like the South African background and that they always have a strong group of passionate swimmers. Personally, my goal is to place at NCAAs in the 50 and 100m-freestyle races. I’m also really excited about our relays. We have a very strong group this year.” Tandy was the fastest sprinter out of the junior college level and expects to provide a major boost to Arizona’s relay and freestyle groups. “As newcomers, we enter the program with loads of energy and enthusiasm,” Tandy said. “We are excited to win and do well. That [energy], along with talent and technique [from new transfers], creates a solid and balanced team.”

Arizona State Legislature to improve the football stadium under the condition that the medical school would not teach its students how to perform abortions. What was initially a contractual agreement is now Arizona law, according to Kat Sabine, the executive director for the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League Pro-Choice Arizona. Arizona Revised Statute 15-1630 states that abortions at educational facilities under the Arizona Board of Regents are prohibited unless it is necessary to save the life of the woman or the fetus is already dead. Because the University of Arizona Medical Center is considered a teaching hospital, students interested in learning the procedure must be trained at a specialized clinic, such as Planned Parenthood, said Ilana Addis, the division director of general obstetrics and gynecology at the UA College of Medicine. The Medical Students for Choice club holds events to educate their classmates about the abortion laws, which includes talks by educators and fundraisers. The club also does training

for the abortion procedure, where students learn the procedural process before practicing with a papaya fruit, according to Hartl. “If we don’t have people who can do it, then it’s not going to be safe,” Hartl said. “People need to develop interest now and pursue that training to increase the number of providers so it’s not a bottleneck. So it’s not such a risk.” Retired Tucson Superior Court Judge Margaret Houghton and her husband, Bert Falbaum, are financial supporters of the club. Houghton gives an annual lecture to the medical students on the laws regarding abortion. Houghton’s talk discusses the specifics of the law and efforts that have been made to minimize the burden on families regarding abortion, according to Hartl. The Abortion Access Network of Arizona is a nonprofit organization that provides small grants for women who need help paying for their abortion, according to Serena Freewomyn, a co-founder of AANA. For the first trimester, an abortion can cost between $300 and $500 and the second trimester can cost $1,400 or more, according to Freewomyn. AANA gives

“All of the other cases have clear social justice implications,” Murray said. The second case established that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage strictly as a heterosexual union, is unconstitutional. This gave legally recognized same-sex couples the same federal rights as heterosexual couples. While he said he fully supports gay marriage, Bolick disagreed with the court’s decision. “This is the quintessential state issue, and the federal government should not interfere with it,” Bolick said. In Hollingsworth v. Perry, the court ruled that the sponsors of California’s Proposition 8, which makes same-sex marriage illegal in the state, couldn’t legally appeal the

money directly to the clinic and connects women with agencies they can trust to get additional funding. There are only six clinics in Arizona where a woman can receive an abortion: four in Phoenix and two in Tucson. However, Sabine said there are more than 100 fake clinics throughout the state. “If you did not know that they weren’t going to provide you accurate information, you could end up in one of these centers and really either be emotionally terrorized by somebody or be provided
decision to repeal the proposition without state officials’ support. This decision also had the consequence of repealing Proposition 8 and legalizing same-sex marriage in California. The final case, Shelby County v. Holder, invalidated part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Previously, certain counties and states required federal review before enacting changes to voting laws. The court ruled that section 4b of the Voting Rights Act, which contains the rules used to decide which jurisdictions are subject to review, is unconstitutional, while leaving in place the government’s ability to review certain jurisdictions. The Supreme Court also left the door open for Congress to create a new system of deciding which jurisdictions would be under review. Local attorney Gary Wolfe, said he was especially interested in Shelby County v. Holder because he thinks the Supreme

misinformation,” Sabine said. “That’s just not OK.” Freewomyn also said the fake clinics will delay the procedure until it is no longer legal for a the woman to receive an abortion. “When we say it’s my body, my choice, we’re not just talking about abortion,” Freewomyn said. “We’re talking about the right to control our own destinies, and the right to control our own lives.” — Follow Maggie Driver @Maggie_Driver

Court got its decision “half right.” “Any mistakes made on the Voting Rights Act has systemic consequences,” Wolfe said. “A portion of their decision could have been much more mild, because any burden on the states is a small price to pay to make sure that voting rights aren’t interfered with.” Wake said he tried to address his comments to law students based on what he thought would be interesting to them. James Carlson, a first-year law student, said he appreciated seeing “relevant cases that are fresh off the press” discussed at the event, “There’s a generational change to how some of those issues are changing in the country,” Carlson said, “and they might be gaining more acceptance.” —Follow Jazmine Foster@Jazz_Foster

eliminates alcohol from the bloodstream, but it doesn’t work as fast as we might like. Example A: if a 120 pound woman has 7 standard drinks (that’s six 1.5 oz. shots of 80 proof vodka) while partying on Saturday until midnight, her BAC will peak at 0.26. That’s more than 3 times the legal DUI limit of 0.08 BAC and high enough to cause her to blackout. If she goes to bed at 2am and sleeps 8 hours, she will wake up at 10am Sunday morning with a BAC of about .10. She will still be drunk and over the legal DUI limit. Based on the amount of alcohol she drank, her weight, and her gender, it will take about 17 hours for her BAC to return to zero. She won’t be sober until 5pm on Sunday afternoon. Had she limited her drinking to 3 shots of vodka, it would take seven hours to return to zero BAC and she would wake up at 10am feeling much better, without any alcohol in her bloodstream. Most people who drink moderately (one drink an hour for women, or 2 drinks an hour for men) rarely wake up impaired or hung over. Example B: if a 160 pound man has 7 standard drinks (7 cans of Keystone Light beer on Saturday night), his BAC will peak at 0.16 (more than double the legal DUI limit of 0.08 BAC). If he stops drinking at midnight, gets a ride from a designated driver, goes to bed at 2am and sleeps 8 hours, he will wake at 10am Sunday morning with a BAC of about .01. Not quite zero, but almost. When it comes to recovering from drinking, most men have advantages over women: men typically weigh more and metabolize alcohol at a faster rate.

Showcasing ‘the beauty of culture’ UA-run festival aims to highlight aspects of Chinese heritage, providing variety of music performances and exhibits on the country’s art, food and health BY Casey knox
The Daily Wildcat From Sept. 18 to Sept. 28, the UA Confucius Institute will present its second annual Chinese Culture Festival, allowing the Tucson community to share and learn about traditional Chinese culture through music, food, performances, lectures, films and more. Last year, the festival drew about 3,000 participants, and this year, the Confucius Institute is looking forward to an even bigger turnout, said Larry Lang, senior program coordinator at the Confucius Institute. “We want to add something to the color of Chinese culture,” Lang said. Lang spoke on the significance of the festival, adding that its scheduling coincides with the 75th Annual MidAutumn Moon Festival, which will be celebrated on Sept. 21. In Chinese tradition, the Autumn Moon Festival is a “holiday of harvest,” comparable to Thanksgiving, Lang said. On Friday and Saturday, Wang Liping will be premiering his work called “Symphonic Suite: Dream of the Red Chamber” for the first time in North America, performed by soloist Chen Li, the Arizona Symphony Orchestra and other musicans from China. The concert, Lang said, will serve as the festival’s centerpiece this year. “Each year we have a different focal point,” he said, “And this year it’s the concert.” Zhao Chen, co-director of the Confucius Institute, said the concert incorporates both Chinese music and melodies while integrating Western elements to provide a unique concert for the Tucson community. “The quality of this show is top-notch,” Chen said. “People don’t have to go far to get that exposure.” Additionally, the Confucius Institute will hold a Chinese Language Day in the Student Union Memorial Center Grand Ballroom on Sunday, where students and community members can participate in friendly, competitive games offering food and awards for participants. Chen said that by giving the festival the opportunity to reach out to Tucson and the UA, they are responding to the needs of the community as a whole. “Language without culture is very abstract, so we want to provide both during the festival,” Chen said, adding that she hopes to create an attraction for people interested in Chinese linguistics. On Saturday, the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center in Reid Park is scheduled to host Chinese Health Day, which will feature outdoor shows and performances. Visitors will be able to learn about, as well as watch, tai chi and martial arts, and indulge in food.

FIRST CHINESE Cultural Festival, put on last year by the UA’s Confucius Institute, incorporated music, food and health into more than a week of performances, exhibits and seminars to showcase the country’s heritage. The second annual festival, scheduled to begin today, will run for the next 10 days, and is slated to feature a symphony performance and series of lectures discussing topics that will range from literature to health.
“The [Confucius Institute’s] purpose for us is to promote the local Chinese language and education,” Lang said. One of the many ways the institute aims to do this is by offering lectures throughout the festival. Beginning on Wednesday, the institute has arranged for a number of different lectures covering
Chinese instrumental music, poetry, medicinal practices and literature. The lectures are designed to give the community a deeper understanding of Chinese heritage. The institute, Chen said, is looking to reach beyond people who already have an understanding of their Chinese heritage
and encourage students and the Tucson community to participate in the festival. “We want to show off the beauty of our culture,” Chen added, “So people can have the experience right here in Tucson.”

alternate dream world that can be accessed via sleeping, and is the most supernatural aspect of the movie. The Further was much maligned in the first movie; it was presented toward the end of the film, and many felt its introduction undermined what the rest of the movie had established. In “Insidious 2,” The Further and the real world are juxtaposed, where the events
in either directly influence the other. This makes for engaging crosscutting between the two worlds during the film’s climax. However, there are apparently no rules for The Further, or, if there are, they are convoluted and undercut any logic that the plot provides.

jump variety, induced by loud noises and sudden edits. The camerawork, though, can be quite clever and misleading. Shots that last longer than usual trick the viewer, misdirecting them as to where the scare is going to occur. These long shots allow tension to build, and the end result is much more effective — and frightening — than the usual jump scares. However, the film does not have anything even remotely as disconcerting, though, as the first film’s use of music by 1960s American folk singer Tiny Tim. Tim’s voice possesses a certain strange quality, and when combined with the creepy atmosphere of the first film, it is no surprise that the music was what really perturbed audiences. The sequel would certainly have benefitted from such a memorable aspect, as no one particular moment sticks out. Apart from lead actor Wilson, the acting ability ranges from stilted to adequate. There’s nothing to write home about here, as the dialogue simply functions as explanations for what’s happening on-screen. Plainly stated, the actors get the job done. However, Wilson shines above the other actors as he plays a well-meaning patriarchal figure who wants to protect his family, until he slowly begins to transform into a menacing presence. “Insidious: Chapter 2” is a decent flick, but considering the announcement of a possible third installment, it will more than likely be a single link in the chain of “Insidious” movies, each diminishing in quality.
