Downtown investing on the rise STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Public and private investment in downtown Tucson has significantly increased since 2008 and is expected to continue to do so through 2014, according to a five-year economic development report for downtown Tucson. While the majority of public investment took place in 2011 with streetcar construction, an estimated $209 million in private investment between 2008 and 2013 will also contribute to the attempt to revitalize downtown Tucson. The estimated public investment is $589 million for the five year period. “It’s exceeding even my expectations at this point,” said Michael Keith, chief executive officer of Downtown Tucson Partnership. Downtown Tucson Partnership was created in 1998 to enhance “security, maintenance, marketing, festivals and events and economic development,” according to its website. Tucson business owners are either opening new concepts downtown or adding downtown locations to their businesses. From bars, restaurants and coffee shops to publishing companies and student housing complexes, downtown Tucson will have 141 new businesses in the five year period, 48 of them restaurants and bars, Keith said. “I think that a lot of people see that there’s a great potential here,” said Kate Preble, coowner of Brewd, a coffee house on Sixth Avenue near Congress Street. “Not just for the students but for everyone.” Preble opened the coffee house in January 2012 and said her decision had nothing to do with the streetcar. Rather, she wanted Tucsonans and students to have an alternative to bars and

Matt Scott was feeling it in Saturday’s game against South Carolina State. The senior quarterback was at the helm for 42 of the Wildcats’ 56 points in the shutout victory, and finished with 288 passing yards and three touchdowns along with 61 yards on the ground and a score. He went 30-for-36 through the air, and completed his last 13 passes of the game before he was pulled for backup B.J. Denker at the start of the fourth quarter. After the game, Scott said he didn’t realize how many passes he was completing, but he still believes he can do better. “I didn’t know my numbers were like that,” Scott said. “I thought I missed a few passes here and there that I could’ve easily hit. I can do better.” Rodriguez was impressed, although he still believes Scott is a work in progress. “He was pretty sharp,” Rodriguez said. “I think he missed one deep ball. Those are the things, in order to beat a team like we have coming up [in Oregon] those big play shots that we had … we’ve gotta hit. “Every week you can see that he’s hungry to prove himself,” Rodriguez added. “Even though he had three pretty good weeks, he’ll be hungry this weekend … Matt’s still learning, he’s only three games into playing the new system. There’s still some things he can get better at.” In three games, Scott has thrown for 995 yards and has 190 rushing yards.

‘Vanilla Vick’ gets his shot

B.J. Denker, the Wildcats’ top backup quarterback, calls himself Vanilla Vick because he has attributes — athleticism, lefthandedness, small stature — similar to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick. On Saturday, Denker finally had his chance to show the public what he had, as a 42-0 lead entering the fourth quarter became an opportunity for

Poetry Center loses director after 10 years STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Daily Wildcat

The university is conducting a nationwide search for a new poetry center executive director following Gail Browne’s resignation. During Browne’s 10 years as executive director, the poetry center went from being housed in three small historic residential buildings to the first of three “new landmark buildings” for poetry in the country. The Helen S. Schaefer building is also the only one of the three poetry centers of its kind that is directly connected to a university. “I feel like I was hired in 2002 to construct this building and to develop an organization,” Browne said. “I feel that I’ve accomplished those goals and that the poetry center is in such a good place right now.” Browne said she believes that now is the best time for new leadership to maintain and continue to grow the program. After her tenure is over, Browne will move to Phoenix to explore new opportunities while continuing to work with arts and literature. “I’ve been involved in arts administration and arts marketing my entire career and I expect that I’ll continue to be involved in those areas,” Browne said. Browne also said she agreed to be available as a consultant for the new executive director for a year after she leaves the UA. “I was relieved to hear that she would be willing to stay on as a

Browne said she was able to apply her business skills to her job at the UA, which involved raising money, first for the new building and then to pay for reading series at the center. “It’s laborious to raise money for a capital campaign for building a building,” Browne said. “While we finished raising the money for this building, our next new project is to raise enough money for our programs endowment.” When Browne was hired in 2002, there was talk about moving the poetry center from one set of small “near-collapse” buildings to another university building then wasn’t being used, according to Peter Likins, president emeritus from 1997 to 2006. Browne continued to raise money and Likins supported the decision to build the poetry center its own building. “I think that’s why Gail gives me some credit for helping them get their new and really quite lovely home,” Likins said. “There’s a very large body over the generations of people who love that place … It is a world-class program.” The Schaefer building has won eight awards since it opened in 2007, most of them for architecture and design. Likins has maintained his admiration of the poetry center from a distance since he left in 2006, he said. When he found out about Browne’s decision to resign from

KABUL, Afghanistan — Eight rural Afghan women gathering fuel for fires were killed Sunday by a NATO airstrike in eastern Afghanistan, Afghan officials said, and mourning villagers carried their bodies to the provincial governor’s office in protest. NATO acknowledged that a strike aimed at a group of insurgents had apparently also killed five to eight civilians. A spokesman for the NATO coalition, U.S. Air Force Capt. Dan Einert, said the bombardment followed a “significant engagement” Sunday morning in the remote Alinger district of Laghman province. He said a unit of NATO’s International Security Assistance Force identified a group of about 45 insurgents with hostile intent and called in

NATO airstrike kills 8 civilian Afghans MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

monday, september

There was a large turnout at the department of entomology’s second Arizona Insect Festival in the Student Union Memorial Center’s Grand Ballroom on Saturday morning.

the airstrike, which killed a large number of them. “Unfortunately, we are aware of civilian casualties as a result of this strike,” he said. Sarhadi Zowak, a Laghman provincial spokesman, said in addition to the eight women killed, seven other women were wounded. In recent years, NATO and Afghan government forces have been responsible for a shrinking proportion of civilian deaths, with nearly all such deaths and injuries blamed on insurgents. But airstrikes remain the single largest cause of civilian casualties caused by international forces. Overall, the United Nations reported more than 3,000 civilians killed or injured by the conflict in the first half of this year, a drop of 15 percent from the comparable period a year ago. That trend has reversed during the warm-weather months.


In Syria’s largest city, rebellion takes religious tone MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

ALEPPO, Syria — Two months into the battle for Syria’s second largest city, the airstrikes have become a part of daily life. Sometimes they are deadly accurate, taking out the rebels for whom they are intended. Just as often, they seem to miss. A rebel headquarters in a former police station in the northeastern neighborhood of Hanano stands as testament to this. Though its windows are all broken, it has been missed at least four times, the intended strikes landing in a nearby park, and an empty lot and destroying a five-story apartment building a full block away. The battle for Aleppo that began with a rebel offensive in mid-July has settled into a stalemate. The rebels control largely the same

neighborhoods they took in the initial offensive. But there is something different — a distinctly religious tone absent previously elsewhere in Syria’s rebellion. “This is not a revolution, it’s a jihad,” shouted one man, angry, as he stood near the rubble of the apartment building mentioned above. Behind him, men worked with a bulldozer, trying to reach people they believed were still alive under the rubble. As the death toll in Syria continues to rise, and the end of hostilities seems no closer at hand, the words from February of a Syrian activist, who fiercely defended the democratic and nonsectarian nature of the rebellion, resonate. “If no one else comes to help, of course people will turn to religion. When you are dying, of course you will become more religious,” he said.

The fight for Aleppo, much better planned and coordinated than perhaps any rebel offensive so far, offers a window into what things might look like after the Syrian government falls. Liwa Tawhid, one of the largest groups fighting here, had even made contingencies for policing rebel controlled neighborhoods and laid out plans to set up schools. Their plan for schooling includes religious instruction, and their council for making decisions about the fate of prisoners includes an expert in Islamic law. At a mosque being used as a base for fighters in another neighborhood, a sign warning civilians against entering was another sign of the religious drift. The sign referred to the men inside as “mujahideen,” which translates as holy warriors, as opposed to “thowar,” which means revolutionaries. Last Tuesday, at another rebel base, members

of Ahrar al Sham, a group whose members describe themselves as Salafis, followers of a conservative strain of Islam, some of whose followers also are thought behind last week’s attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Egypt, Libya and elsewhere, handed out leaflets delineating the difference between mujahids and other rebels. It used the perjorative term “shabiha” — a Syrian word that usually refers to pro-government militiamen accused of carrying out some of the war’s worst atrocities — to refer to non-mujahids. The leaflet had multiple aims, including criticizing rebels who might loot or use their weapons carelessly. But it also explained that a mujahid prays, and “knows very well that God will give us victory if we apply his law by studying it and spread it between people nicely.”

nightclubs, especially those who are not yet 21 years old. She remains optimistic about the streetcar and hopes that it will motivate more students to explore the downtown area, she added. John Jacobs, a member of Congress Street Club, said that downtown is expected to be the most expensive commercial real estate in Tucson once the streetcar is running. Congress Street Club owns seven concepts along Congress Street, including Sapphire Lounge, Zen Rock and Empire Pizza. “Once roads open up the future of downtown is very bright,” Jacobs said. “For businesses to invest and help develop downtown right now, it’s a good investment. We want to be a part of that.” Keith said he believes the streetcar was a deciding factor for many business owners to start a business in downtown Tucson rather than another state’s urban area. “The streetcar corridor is the calling card we’ve been waiting for that says to young professionals, don’t pick Austin, don’t move to Portland, stay in Tucson,” Keith said. The report estimated

that more than 10,000 construction jobs have been created in the fiveyear period. Permanent jobs in the new and relocated businesses total 1,626, according to the report. Other public investment projects include parking garages, a new courthouse that’s currently under construction and the Fourth Avenue underpass. Preble believes once Tucson’s downtown is more developed, the city will have an urban core while still having rural areas with great views, she said. “Now we’ve got the best of both worlds and we don’t have all of the trappings of the big city,” Preble said.

By the numbers


Downtown Tucson’s total private investment is expected to total $208,658,111 by the end of 2013. Here’s how the numbers break down in each sector:

the executive director position, Likins said he eventually understood that moving on to new things in life is natural. “It’s always a surprise when a leadership changes at a university,” Likins said. “But then my second recognition was that this is the natural order of things. Universities have constant rotations in their leadership.” Wildner-Bassett said Browne made her decision over the summer but waited for the right time to publicly announce her resignation. Browne is highly respected by many in the College of Humanities and in the community and finding out that she will no longer be working with the UA was bittersweet for everyone, Wildner-Bassett added. “We’re sorry to see her go,” Wildner-Bassett said. “We understand. Gail has done so much, built so much for us, has been a wonderful leader.”

As ASU leads way to future, UA lags

Jason Krell Arizona Daily Wildcat


he UA does a lot when it comes to research and developing new technologies — just look at the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter — but the university isn’t necessarily leading the state in innovation. An argument could be made that Arizona State University holds, or will soon hold, the top spot. ASU is about to launch a brandnew series of interconnected programs that have the potential to revolutionize technology around the world. The two main parts are the Center for Science and the Imagination and the Hieroglyph program. The goal is “to be a platform for new kinds of thinking and collaboration at the university level,” said Ed Finn, director of the Center for Science and Imagination. “We want to bring together people in the sciences and the humanities and the arts to work on really ambitious, creative thinking about the future,” he added. It’s not the first time someone has tried to do something like this, Finn said, but ASU is trying to take a new approach by serving as a network, connecting the various groups and exploring new partnerships. Everything started in Washington, D.C., when science fiction author Neal Stephenson gave a talk that questioned the prevalence of a dystopian worldview of the future while wondering where the big, new innovations were. Hearing this, ASU President Michael Crow said the blame fell on the writers. “It’s the science fiction writers who should be inspiring [people] to think more ambitiously, more creatively about the future,” Finn added. Stephenson happened to think Crow had a point, and so the two decided to change everything with the center and Hieroglyph project. Already Stephenson is working with structural engineers at ASU to make his vision of a 20-kilometer high steel tower a reality. Stephenson believes it can help planes refuel without needing to land, and more importantly, it will make launching missions into space far easier. Finn also said multiple authors will collaborate to write a short story anthology depicting various important innovations in a positive light, ideally to further inspire a new generation of scientists. There is still a lot of work to be done with the tower and the programs themselves, but the potential is staggering. ASU is taking a huge step into the future by using a novel approach. By uniting the creativity of writers with scientists’ ability to create what they read about, the Center for Science and the Imagination and Hieroglyph are fixing a system that once upon a time inspired humanity to go into space. The UA does a lot of good for the world, but it will get left behind if ASU’s new programs live up to their promise. Plus, there’s no reason the UA can’t try something similar, as we have our own talented scientists and writers. Regardless of rival athletic teams, the UA should look to ASU as a role model for collaboration in art and science. We need to emulate its push for progress and innovation, or risk being left out of the future.

The trouble with civility Kristina Bui Arizona Daily Wildcat


n the wake of Muslim protests around the world — including the storming of the U.S. embassy in Libya — “civility” and the First Amendment appear at odds again. Part of an anti-Islam video shot in California that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad first appeared on YouTube in July and received little attention. But after Egyptian television aired segments of it, according to CNN, the video sparked waves of unrest across the globe. Officials have denounced the video, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declaring it “disgusting and reprehensible” and the Obama administration asking Google to review the video to see if it violates YouTube’s policies. Egyptian officials have urged the U.S. to take legal action against it. But the trouble with the Constitution is that everyone thinks it’s good until it enables something they don’t like. It’s only easy to defend free speech when it isn’t hurting anyone. On public university campuses, which function as forums for open dialogue and free expression, the urge to restrict speech strikes more aggressively than almost anywhere else. The UA quietly rescinded a civility policy about a year ago from its Community Living Guide (which students in Residence Life housing are required to abide by).

In response to “Hip-hop cultures focus of new minor program” (by Brittny Mejia, Sept. 12): It’s easy to criticize hip-hop under an educational context, if you only see the cars, money, gang violence, sex, drugs and degrading of women. But hip-hop has the power to teach because it hits so many cylinders of education: poetry, history, sociology, literature, philosophy, politics and language. The roots of hip-hop go through jazz, blues, Jamaican music, slave music and even far back as African tribal music: history. Hip-hop requires the ability to rhyme, to structure lyrics, and to do it over a rhythmic beat: poetry. Hip-hop has been a prominent music genre and has influenced so much of American youth: sociology. Hip-hop was a tool to express for many artists and to tell their stories: literature. Transcendentalism is found in hip-hop music that inspires empowerment and independent thinking: philosophy, other philosophical topics include ideas of justice. Censorship, police brutality, the prison system has been carried over into hip-hop. And the influence of hip-hop in the way we speak has been evident through media, rhetoric and daily life: language. These are just a few of the examples of how hip-hop can be studied in an educational topic. You can deny this, but what you can’t deny is the impact, negative or positive, that hip-hop has had in American culture, like rock ’n’ roll, jazz, and folk. And last but not least, what better way to engage students into educational topics by using the music they listen to. This is the UA saying, “We don’t always have to learn what the professor finds interesting, but we can learn by what the students find interesting.” — Matt

In response to “Senator pushes for additional rec classes” (by Rachel McCluskey, Sept. 13): Great idea. Too bad we no longer have a PE major. Another casualty of our American culture, a tanking economy, or both? - MPH [Master’s in Public Health] student — Michael Woodward In response to “Getting a gun may soon be as easy as downloading music” (by Jason Krell, Sept. 11): The firearms market has advanced significantly in the past few decades but one thing remains the same. Fire versus plastic is no contest. You could print out a plastic gun but it would only be useful as a Halloween accessory. If a criminal is going to spend the money and effort to “download and print” a gun that doesn’t work, he could have spent less money and effort to get a real gun. Gun laws only limit access by those that already obey laws. Mass shootings are against the law but there are people out there that have no respect for human life or laws so restricting gun use will not deter them. The sad reality is that there are bad people out there that are willing to do harm to others. — Brian In response to “As global order shifts, U.S. slips” (by Savannah Martin, Sept. 12): Excellent, a well argued, intelligent piece, describing well the US ‘isolation’ in the world order and its potential to slip from the summit. As an international student at UA, I implore students to travel to see the world, to understand culture and to view the USA amongst its peers. It costs money to travel and to appreciate culture, but the cost to do otherwise is to wither and fall from relevance and importance in the world order … Travel! — Rob

Police Beat YAZMINE MOORE Arizona Daily Wildcat

The masked avenger

A man came into the University of Arizona Police Department headquarters at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 10 with a black mask covering his eyes, black leather gloves, a fedora style hat and a black sport coat. A UAPD officer talked with the man in the lobby and asked him to remove his mask and gloves, but the man said he didn’t want to compromise his identity. The officer told the man that he was required to provide his identification information to a university official. The man then identified himself with a Washington state identification card. He claimed that he had received a phone call earlier from a woman who may have been in a domestic violence incident. He didn’t know the location of the people who may have needed assistance because he interrupted the woman on the phone once he realized the police needed to be involved. The man claimed he worked for “Phoenix Jones” and wore the mask and gloves because he is a vigilant citizen who looks for crimes in progress and reports them to the police. According to the man, “Phoenix Jones” is an organization of citizens who reports crimes while in disguise. While the officer was speaking with him in the lobby, the man received a telephone call from a source who gave him information about possible crimes currently underway. No information was found to support the crimes the man reported. The officer submitted an advisory to the Dean of Students Office because of the man’s behavior.

Bag snatcher on the loose

UAPD responded to a theft at the Student Union Memorial Center at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 11. When the officer arrived, he spoke with the 18-year-old UA student who had reported the crime. She told officers that at about 1:45 p.m, she and a few friends were sitting at a table in front of Panda Express. She set her bag down at her feet and didn’t look back down at it throughout the conversation. At about 3 p.m., she reached down to grab her bag to leave, but it wasn’t there. She looked around the area but couldn’t find it. The student asked her friends if they had picked it up, but they said they hadn’t. No one had noticed anyone come close to the table who could have snatched her bag. There are no suspects at this time. The student asked to participate in any further criminal proceedings.

Don’t be flaky

A UAPD officer responded to the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall at 12:10 a.m. on Sept. 11 after a resident assistant reported the smell of marijuana. When the officer arrived, the RA escorted him to a room on the second floor. The officer knocked twice and announced who he was, but there was no answer. Finally, the 18-year-old resident of the room walked out of the elevator. The RA reported seeing the resident in his room about five minutes earlier, when he smelled the odor. As soon as the officer entered the resident’s room, he too could smell the marijuana. When the officer told the resident why he was there, the resident said, “I’ll be honest, I just smoked at my friend’s apartment.” A second officer said he saw small green marijuana flakes on the resident’s desk and the first officer confirmed the find. The officer disposed of the marijuana flakes at the scene. The resident said he didn’t have marijuana in his room and didn’t want the officers to search his room. He said boxes of marijuana could be found at his friend’s apartment, where he had been smoking. He said his friend’s apartment was located across Euclid Avenue near the Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage. The resident wasn’t charged with possession of marijuana because the small flakes were too small to be claimed as evidence. Instead, he was given a code of conduct referral and sent to the Dean of Student’s Office.

UA takes care of business in 56-0 win CAMERON MOON

The Numbers

Arizona Daily Wildcat

If anything can be drawn from Arizona’s 56-0 win over South Carolina State at Arizona Stadium on Saturday, it’s that the Wildcats won’t be taking any opponent lightly. No. 22 Arizona (3-0) held a 28-0 lead at the start of the third quarter, but kept its starters in because head coach Rich Rodriguez didn’t feel that the team performed as well as it could have. The Wildcats logged a schoolrecord 43 first downs and added 689 yards of total offense, two yards shy of the UA record. “We got some first downs, but there were some possessions I thought we could have been better at,” Rodriguez said. “The guys took care of business. They were very businesslike all week and focused and did what they were supposed to do.” The Wildcats’ offense hummed along as usual, putting up over 500 total yards for the third consecutive game and scoring over 50 points in its second consecutive game, thanks to another solid performance from COLIN Prenger/Arizona Daily Wildcat senior quarterback Matt Scott. Scott RUNNING BACK Daniel Jenkins carries the ball against South Carolina State on Saturday. Jenkins had a game-leading 76 rushing yards and a touchdown. racked up 349 yards of total offense The rout marked the first shutout for last year, obviously.

By the time the fourth quarter Rodriguez wanted to reduce the Both facets of the offense compiled safety Jourdon Grandon said. “As a over 300 yards with a 56-46 run-pass defense, we look to go out and shutout started, Scott and sophomore running number of hits Scott had to take in ratio.

Sean Miller secures a fivestar, small forward recruit ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat


RECEIVER RICHARD MORRISON muffs a punt against SCSU on Saturday. Morrison has had trouble holding onto the ball so far this season, but it hasn’t proven costly just yet as the Wildcats are 3-0.

Grading the game Arizona Daily Wildcat football beat reporter Kyle Johnson takes a look at the Wildcats’ 56-0 win and grades the team’s performance. KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

Passing game

Quarterback Matt Scott was efficient all night, missing on only six attempts and completing 13 straight before being pulled for backup B.J. Denker in the third quarter. While Denker wasn’t spectacular in his first field action for the Wildcats, considering it was against South Carolina State, he at least proved to be a viable option if Scott is forced to miss any action. The two quarterbacks combined to go 36-for-46 for 366 yards and four touchdowns.



So far the receiving corps has proven to be deep and versatile, and the story was no different Saturday. Twelve different players caught the ball and four different receivers had touchdowns. Getting open isn’t the problem though — it’s catching the ball and holding onto it. The Wildcats have six total fumbles this season, with five coming from receivers. Junior Richard Morrison has been the main culprit and he was at it again Saturday. Morrison turned it over once and also muffed a punt that the Wildcats recovered.


Ground attack

Individually, the numbers aren’t staggering, but as a group the Wildcats ran the ball the best they have all season. Arizona gained 323 yards on 56 attempts and scored four times in a full team effort as Daniel Jenkins, Ka’Deem Carey and Jared Baker all had more than ten carries. The runs weren’t spectacular, but Arizona finally showed its depth at the position. Plus, Scott continued to run well, adding 61 yards on nine carries, bringing a level of versatility the Wildcats lacked in the past.


Big play ability

This is the one area the offense was lacking in Saturday, and with a game against No. 3 Oregon on the horizon, it’s something the Wildcats need to improve on. Scott had the longest run of the night, gaining 19 yards on a carry early in the second quarter. He missed on his one deep throw of the night though, and head coach Rich Rodriguez specifically mentioned the play in the post-game press conference. Receivers Dan Buckner and Sean Willet had 27 and 31-yard touchdown catches, respectively, but both came when the game was pretty much out of reach.


Pass rush

Arizona is tied for 99th in the nation with just three sacks in its first three games. Saturday night was more of the same as only reserve linebacker Dakota Conwell came away with a sack. Getting an FCS quarterback on the ground just once is pretty pitiful, and a bad sign with Pac-12 play starting up.


Opportunistic defense

The defense came out and did its job Saturday, limiting the Bulldogs to just 154 total yards with only one drive getting past the 50-yard line. Cornerback Jonathan McKnight made a nice diving interception on an errant throw from SCSU quarterback Richard Cue in the second quarter, and forcing turnovers is something the Wildcats will need to do in order to challenge teams like Oregon and USC.


Short kicking game

Senior John Bonano again missed from close range, shanking a 25-yarder in the first quarter. It’s hard to expect too much from a collegiate kicking game at this point, but anything under 30 yards should be a gimmie.


The Wildcats will be losing senior small forwards Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom next season, but on Thursday head coach Sean Miller did well to try and offset that loss. Small forward recruit Rondae Jefferson revealed via Twitter on Thursday night that he would be joining the Wildcats in 2013. The 6-foot-7 forward from Chester, Pa. tweeted “Arizona it is #BearDown”. He made the decision during an in-home visit with the Wildcats. Jefferson is a five-star recruit and the No. 10 ranked player of 2013 recruits, according to Dave Telep, ESPN’s senior college basketball recruiting analyst, described Jefferson as the kind of player with a “lunchpail” mentality. “[Jefferson] brings a resume of winning and just a toughness to the small forward position,” Telep said in a phone interview with the Arizona Daily Wildcat. “He can be facilitator, he can be a very good scorer in the lane, he has great instincts and reflexes. If he’s ever able to get a consistent perimeter shot, at least from mid-range, he’ll be even more of a threat.” With the looming graduation of seniors Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom, Jefferson is perfect for Arizona. Jefferson averaged 12.1 points, 9.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.7 blocks per game for Chester High School during his junior season. Telep believes Jefferson will fit into the Wildcats lineup perfectly. He called him the type of player that “championship teams always have,” comparing him to similarly versatile, championship-winning Tar Heel. “I think for Arizona it’s a very unique piece,” Telep said. “Obviously they loaded up with the bigs last year and this is the kid that, he’s not gonna be the high scorer or the No. 1 rebounder.“ He’s going to be that Danny Green type player that championship teams always have. One guy who ties everything together, whether it’s a help on a block or a weakside rebound or a tip-in, that’s Rondae Jefferson.” In 2009, for North Carolina’s championship team, Green averaged 13.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 three-pointers per game. He was also named to the ACC AllDefensive Team, as he recorded 1.8 steals and 1.3 blocks per game.

The signing makes this the third year in a row that Miller has added a five-star recruit to the Wildcats, following the additions of Josiah Turner in 2011 (who has since left the program) and Kaleb Tarczewski, Grant Jerrett and Brandon Ashley in 2012. Jefferson, who is from Philadelphia, had also been considering Florida, Texas, Rutgers, Syracuse, Memphis and Temple, according to ESPN. His brother, Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson, stayed in Philadelphia to play for Temple University. The last player to commit to Arizona from Philadelphia was point guard Mustafa Shakur in 2003. Jefferson joins four-star shooting guard Elliott Pitts, who hails from Concord, Calif., in the Wildcats’ 2013 recruiting class. Telep attributed Miller’s success in reeling in Jefferson to an attention to detail and a commitment to the recruitment.

Arizona soccer ties LMU IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

After 110 minutes of play, the Arizona women’s soccer team finished with a score of 0-0 against Loyola Marymount on Sunday in its first tie of the season. “It was not our best game of the season,” head coach Lisa Oyen said. “LMU did a good job bouncing back from their game

on Friday and we did the exact opposite. When we don’t play well we get away from doing the really simple things.” In a scoreless first half, LMU outshot the Wildcats (4-3-1) 8-6 with three on goal to Arizona’s one shot on goal. This is the fourth time this season an opponent has outshot the Wildcats in the first half.

backups to see the field. While he didn’t quite live up to his moniker, Denker had a solid night going 6-of-10 with 78 yards and a touchdown in one quarter of action. It was Denker’s first Division I football experience after playing in the junior college level at Cerritos College in California. “It felt good,” Denker said. “I haven’t played in a live atmosphere, I haven’t got hit since my last season at [Cerritos]. It definitely helps [with confidence]. It helps with the crowd getting rowdy, to play in front of thousands of people. I’m not used to that.” For the Wildcats, Denker is next in line on the off-chance of a Matt Scott injury, so Rodriguez felt it was important to get Denker some time on the field against the Bulldogs. “BJ’s practiced pretty well,” Rodriguez said. “We needed to get him some experience. I thought he saw the field pretty well for his first time out there. “

Position switches

In fall camp, the Wildcats’ lack of depth on defense forced Rodriguez to bring some offensive players to the defensive side of the ball, most notably fullback Taimi Tutogi.

Arizona Daily Wildcat •

17, 2012 Now, it’s the other way around. Against South Carolina State, Rodriguez debuted a couple of defensive players on offense. Jowyn Ward, formerly a defensive lineman, was permanently moved to the offensive line two weeks ago. “I moved Jo about two weeks ago,” Rodriguez said. “I wish I would’ve moved him in spring. I think he would have been in the mix. At the time we were still looking for guys defensively, but he’s clearly a second team guard.” In 19 career games on the defensive line, including three starts, Ward recorded 11 tackles, 1.5 for loss, one sack and one fumble recovery. Senior center Kyle Quinn is happy to have Ward on his side of the ball. “He was having fun out there,” Quinn said. “He was a little nervous at first, but he’s a natural lineman. “He’s done a great job for two weeks but he got out there and got playing time … finding and hitting anything that moves. He’s a big, strong kid. It’s fun to see him play.” Dame Ndiaye, formerly a defensive end, was moved to tight end in practice last week. The redshirt freshman saw the first game action of his career against South Carolina State. “I don’t even know if he knew how to get in his stance,” Rodriguez joked. “He didn’t jump offsides, but I’ll have to see the film if he blocked anybody.”

This match also marks the fourth time this season Arizona took six shots or fewer in the first half. Junior forward/midfielder Jazmin Ponce and sophomore forward Emily Lai both came close to putting points on the board. Twenty-one minutes into the first half, Ponce launched the ball just right of the goal, missing it by inches. Fifteen minutes later Lai took aim and shot the ball, hitting the top post. Groans of disappointment sounded throughout the stadium as Arizona failed to place the ball in the back of the net. “They figured out the way I play so they backed up when I had the ball,” Ponce said. “I tried to turn and hit it every time, but it wasn’t going the way I wanted it. It was just frustrating we couldn’t get the ball into the net.” The momentum changed in the first 15 minutes of the second half as the Lions came out aggressive offensively. As the Wildcats regained control, senior midfielder Ariel Boulicault took a wide shot to the right which resulted in a corner

UA cross-country sweeps Invitational LUKE DAVIS

Arizona Daily Wildcat


QUARTERBACK Matt Scott carries the ball against SCSU. Scott ran for 61 yards in the 56-0 victory.

The No. 12 Arizona women’s cross-country team, led by junior Elvin Kibet, swept the 2012 Dave Murray Invitational at the Del Urich Golf Course in Tucson on Friday. The women’s team finished in first place overall with 15 points. The win was Kibet’s second consecutive win at the invitational. Kibet was just north of her course record time of 16:22 she set last season, recording a time of 16:49. “I felt really good,” Kibet said. “The first two miles I pretty much just chilled then pushed it for the final mile. But after this race I feel I am ready for anything and I believe in myself.” Kibet finished 11 seconds ahead of sophomore Nicci Corbin in the women’s 3-mile race, and those two were followed by eight Wildcat runners. On the men’s side, senior Stephen Sambu, a redshirt senior, won the 4.25-mile race by 16 seconds, posting a time of 20:28 and helping to propel the Wildcats to an

overall victory with 22 points “I was very happy with my performance,” Sambu said after his first cross country race since 2010. “I feel stronger and ready for the rest of the season.” Sophomore Kenji Bierig finished third overall and freshman Nathan Kandie finished sixth. The level of competition on Friday was far from what it will be in the upcoming races, as the competition was primarily made up of local community colleges, but head coach James Li was delighted for the women to finish with a perfect score and beat second place Grand Canyon University by 50 points. “I think [Friday] went pretty good,” said Li. “We knew coming in it would be more of a time trial, but we still had some of our top runners not run. But we’ll get there.” Li was also excited about how Sambu ran. The redshirt senior sat out all of last season and did not compete in the team’s first meet in Flagstaff, Ariz. “Stephen (Sambu) is looking great,” Li said. “He’s running nice and easy and looks ready for the coming weeks.”

Can you contract HIV from any bodily fluid?

A. No. There are only four bodily fluids that carry the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) with a high enough viral load to infect a partner. Those four fluids are blood, semen (including pre-cum), breast milk, and vaginal secretions. Other fluids such as urine, tears, sweat, and saliva do not have a high enough virus content for infection. There are 5 activities that can put you at risk for contracting HIV: sexual intercourse (oral, anal, or vaginal), sharing needles, mother-to-child transmission during childbirth, blood transfusions (which is extremely rare), and work exposure for those who work in the healthcare field. What’s the best way to protect yourself against HIV? Know your status and the status of your partner. Use barrier methods such as condoms or latex dams each and every time you have sex. If you are using needles, don’t share or use

someone else’s. LifePoint is a local syringe-exchange program where people can bring their used needles and exchange them for clean ones – no questions asked. If you are an HIV+ woman and are pregnant or plan to have children in the future, there are antiretroviral therapies you can take during your pregnancy to lower transmission risk to 2% or less. If you work in the healthcare field, always use universal precautions. Remember, everyone has an HIV status. The only way to know yours is to get tested. As of August 1, 2012, the Affordable Care Act eliminates the co-pay for women’s HIV testing. Depending on the insurance plan’s effective date, many women can get tested with no out of pocket cost. The Campus Health Service offers confidential HIV testing all year round. To make an appointment, call (520) 621-9202.

Get a hipster girl to notice you HAYDEN JORDE

Arizona Daily Wildcat

There she is — that girl in your lecture class. She has a full sleeve, her hair is dyed red and one side is growing back in from the undercut she used to have. You want to talk to her, but you will never get her attention — at least not in those duds. You have to dress the part, and here’s how.

Supreme hat


Nothing tells a girl you have a St. Vincent song stuck in your head like wearing a Supreme hat. They simply look sick. Not only does it make you look stylish, it implies you know how to skate. What could be better? If it’s the indie chick you are after, this is a must. Check Buffalo Exchange before paying full price on this item. 1.

8. Do as London does — Theophilus London is the coolest man alive. If you are lost in the world of style and fashion, google his name and start taking notes. What is the most important part of his look you are going to want to steal for yourself? His rad sunglasses. Everyone and their mother has a pair of Ray-Bans these days, so up your game and go high fashion. He has worn Lemtosh sunglasses by Moscot in the past, but those bad boys run upward of $250. So ask yourself, how much do you really want to impress this girl?


3. 4. Sweaters are perfect for times during fall when it is not quite cold enough for a full jacket, but you want more than a hoodie. The best part of a sweater is it’s one of the easiest of all thrift shop finds and can be purchased quite cheaply.


5. 6. Cigarettes are to the hipster community what steroids are for major league baseball. I am not saying you should smoke by any means, but they definitely seem to be popular among the hipster community. If you don’t actually smoke, say you are trying to quit and complain about how badly you want one. Brand isn’t that important — just don’t smoke lights. 7.

Skinny jeans

2. Not blue jeans — you’ll need a pair of skinny jeans. Regular blue skinny jeans are all right as a last resort, but if you are after the ultra-hipster, you’re going to have to dress like one. Run to Urban Outfitters or American Apparel and pick up a pair of brown or tan denim jeans. Remember that they must be cuffed, so buy them longer.

Local songwriter finds his voice ed every note to be just right. In May 2011, while vocals and the mastering of the album was still in the works, Sanchez died in a car accident. Although Sanchez was gone, the band still had a piece of him. As one of Hector’s friends put it, “We are so lucky his portion had already been recorded.” “After Hector passed away, you realize the fragility of human existence,” Fanus said. The EP was released on March 30, 2012, but the blow of Sanchez’s loss was too much for the band, and the members decided to go their separate ways. Fanus said he stopped writing music for about a year after Sanchez’s passing. Then, when the one-year anniversary of Sanchez’s death approached, Fanus said he was inspired to write a song just for him. But Fanus didn’t stop there.
