The UA and ASU both fall within the bottom third of Pac-12 schools in this year’s U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges Rankings. The UA ranked 124th for national universities, compared to 120th last year. The University of Utah tied for 124th while Arizona State University moved up from 143rd to 132nd. Oregon State University was the lowest-ranked Pac-12 school at 138th. The rankings, released annually, are based on a variety of factors including student retention rates, graduation rates and acceptance rates. More than 200 schools received ranks this year while an additional 100 were included without rank or with the rank unpublished. The UA’s progress in the rankings from year to year is more important than its place among other schools, said Melissa Vito, vice president of Student Affairs. The Arizona Board of Regents compares the UA to peer institutions, which may or may not be within the Pac-12, she said. “We look at us against us,” Vito said. The UA’s average freshman retention rate is about 79 percent while its fall 2010 acceptance rate was 75 percent, according to the university’s profile on the ranking website. Stanford University, which leads the Pac-12 at No. 5, has a 98 percent retention rate and 7 percent acceptance rate. “Our admission standards tend to be more inclusive,” Vito said. “It does
UAPD, PTS step up bike Student magazine seeks new recruits traffic law enforcement By Samantha Munsey DAILY WILDCAT

To the undergraduate magazine Persona, everyone is a critic. Started in 1978, Persona is an art and literature magazine produced at the end of every school year that contains UA undergraduate writing, art and photography. The Persona staff will hold a recruitment meeting in the Modern Language building, room 451 at 6 tonight to find students who are interested in being a part of its selection committee.
Bicyclists beware — the UA has launched a campaign to make riders more aware of traffic laws. The University of Arizona Police Department and Parking and Transportation Services launched their Bicycle Safety and Education Campaign to promote “a safe travel environment for everyone.” Officers will be on campus throughout September to educate cyclists on traffic regulations and provide pointers on bicycle theft. Although violators will be ticketed when the campaign ends in October, officers can begin ticketing now depending on the violation and the officer’s discretion, according to Sgt. Juan Alvarez, the public information officer at UAPD. “Bikes have to follow the same laws as a car, like stopping at red lights,” he said. Alvarez said officers will approach violators to talk to them about infractions, give them a brochure about bike laws, and give them maps and diversion information if they get a ticket in the future. The goal of the campaign, he said, is to inform violators about their mistakes so they can learn to make better decisions in the future and to achieve “voluntary compliance” — having the community “play their part” by choosing to follow the law. Joyce Childers, a program coordinator at PTS, said violations likely to be enforced are failing to stop at stop

signs, riding against traffic, failing to watch for pedestrians and being generally unaware of surroundings. She said the annual campaign, started in 2005, is aimed to create a safer environment for bicyclists and hopes to result in less bike accidents. About 12,000 cyclists ride on and around the UA campus on any given school day. Although the campaign is mainly geared at cyclists, Alvarez said pedestrians and drivers must also be aware of their surroundings and look out for bicyclists. Nick DePratti, a pre-architecture freshman, said he has been riding his bike around campus since coming
to the UA and believes the campaign will be “highly effective” because he is “legitimately ignorant” to all bike laws and codes. “I would follow more rules if I actually knew them,” he said. “I guess I break the bike laws without knowing.” DePratti said he yields to pedestrians and is considerate to cars, however the rule he “constantly breaks” is not stopping at stop signs, which he said an officer in a patrol car has pulled him over for. “Again, I was not aware that as a cyclist I had to make a full stop, and therefore found myself in trouble,” he added.
“We want to branch out and make sure first and foremost everyone knows about us because we find a very small portion of the student body knows who we are,” said Steven Schiraldi, a journalism senior and Persona co-editor who has been involved in the magazine for the last four years. This year’s staff hopes to attract a diverse number of students who would like to help review and vote on content for publication.

Two UA clubs recycle in spades Campus groups pick up recyclable trash after home football games
Want to join in? If you are interested in volunteering for the Greening the Game project, please contact Natalie Lucas, email@example.com.
By Alexandra Bortnik Daily Wildcat
With football games come indulgences like nachos, hot dogs and kettle corn, and with these indulgences come thirst and a lot of trash. To help alleviate the copious amounts of waste, an intern for Students for Sustainability, a program by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, started Greening the Game last year. After every home football game, the project’s interns and volunteers spend an hour collecting water bottles and paper. Once the water bottles and pamphlets are collected in plastic bags, Facilities Management picks up the bags and recycles them. After the game against Northern Arizona University on Sept. 3, 25 people collected approximately 1,050 water bottles, said Natalie Lucas, executive program director for Students for Sustainability. Anyone interested in volunteering can, but in order to ensure participants, Students for Sustainability collaborated with students from the Arizona Model United Nations club. The Model U.N. students come to games and clean up as part as their club fundraising efforts. Part of the funds raised from the post-game cleanups will help the Model U.N. club go to Chicago for its annual

conference, said Lucas, a junior studying environmental sciences and philosophy, politics, economics and law. Michele MacMillan, administrative director of Students for Sustainability and a political science senior, said they tried to enact the project last year, but were not able
to get recycling bins into the stadium. They then decided to work with the Model U.N. club to help pick up water bottles after the game. MacMillan also said that even though Facilities Management made efforts to add recycling bins in the stadium, it’s a long process that requires approval from differ-
ent areas and a party to finance the project. “I wouldn’t say that the trash system is bad, I would just say that we’re trying to modify it and improve it because there are no recycling bins in the stadium currently, which doesn’t give students the ability to recycle even they want
to,” MacMillan said. Cleaning up after the games as a club makes the task more enjoyable, said Lucas, because she gets to meet new people and work with another club. “It’s pretty cool to work with them (Model U.N.),” she said. Greening the Game hopes to have a reminder on the screen telling game-goers to recycle, but not until there are bins placed inside the stadium, according to MacMillan. Students for Sustainability is currently working on another recycling project that involves studying the types of recycling bins on campus, what the bins look like and where they are placed throughout campus. Lucas said the goal of their new project is to be able to “strategically place” bins so students can recycle more. “Around campus, a lot of trash cans don’t have bins right next to it, and then people don’t look for the (recycling) bin,” Lucas said. The club will also study recycling “signage” to see what logos are most effective for students to know how to recycle. “We’re making an initiative this year to really prove that we’re on the right track and working toward this,” MacMillan added.
A growing prescription drug problem Mcclatchy tribune
LOS ANGELES — Propelled by an increase in prescription narcotic overdoses, drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in the United States, a Los Angeles Times analysis of government data has found. Drugs exceeded motor vehicle accidents as a cause of death in 2009, killing at least 37,485 people nationwide, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While most major causes of preventable death are declining, drugs are an exception. The death toll has doubled in the last decade, now claiming a life every 14 minutes. By contrast, traffic accidents have been dropping for decades because of huge investments in auto safety. Public health experts have used the comparison to draw attention to the nation’s growing prescription drug problem, which they characterize as an epidemic. This is the first time that drugs have accounted for more fatalities than traffic accidents since the government started tracking druginduced deaths in 1979. Fueling the surge in deaths are prescription pain and anxiety drugs that are potent, highly addictive and

especially dangerous when combined with one another or with other drugs or alcohol. Among the most commonly abused are OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma. One relative newcomer to the scene is Fentanyl, a painkiller that comes in the form of patches and lollipops and is 100 times more powerful than
morphine. Such drugs now cause more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined. “The problem is right here under our noses in our medicine cabinets,” said Laz Salinas, a sheriff’s commander in Santa Barbara, which has seen a dramatic rise in prescription drug deaths in recent years.

Correction: The Sept. 13 article “Fly me to the moon: Team seeks $30M interstellar accuracy prize from Google” misrepresented the amount of the prize — the grand prize was $20 million, while the total prize money available for the project was $30 million. The competition ends at the end of 2015 or when all prize money is collected. Roberto Furfaro, an assistant professor of systems and industrial engineering and Daniel Wibben, his system’s engineering graduate student, are helping the company Moon Express win the Google Lunar X Prize.
Overdose victims range in age and circumstance from teenagers who pop pills to get a heroin-like high to middle-aged working men and women who take medications prescribed for strained backs and bum knees and become addicted. The seeds of the problem were planted more than a decade ago by well-meaning efforts by doctors to mitigate suffering, as well as aggressive sales campaigns by pharmaceutical manufacturers. In hindsight, the liberalized prescription of pain drugs “may in fact be the cause of the epidemic we’re now facing,” said Linda Rosenstock, dean of the University of California, Los Angeles School of Public Health. In some ways, prescription drugs are more dangerous than illicit ones because users don’t have their guard up, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Opferman, head of a county task force on prescription drug-related crimes. “People feel they are safer with prescription drugs because you get them from a pharmacy and they are prescribed by a doctor,” Opferman said. “Younger people believe they are safer because they see their parents taking them. It doesn’t have the same stigma as using street narcotics.”

an STD with a condom on?
A. Unfortunately, there are no concrete numbers. What we do know is that for sexually active people, condoms are the best way to reduce the risk of STDs. Human error has a lot to do with why condoms aren’t perfect. Putting the condom on after sex has already started, wearing condoms that don’t fit properly, or rolling out the condom the wrong way then flipping it over, all increase the chance for STD transmission. Condoms are very good at protecting against STDs that can be transmitted through genital secretions – areas of the body where the condom covers. They do not protect as well against STDs transmitted by skin-to-skin contact (areas of the body where the condom doesn’t cover) including hands, vulva, scrotum, and lips. You can minimize your risk of contracting one of these STDs by knowing your partner(s) STD status. To increase condom effectiveness, use one condom every time from start to finish and follow these steps: 1. Store the condom in a cool dry place, like a sock drawer.
2. Check the expiration date; yes, condoms do expire. 3. Feel for the air bubble inside the unopened package, if there is not one there, get a new condom. 4. Gently tear open the package using your hands. 5. If you need to add a lubricant, use a water-based one. You can put this on the inside and outside of the condom. 6. Squeeze the tip of the condom to leave space for the semen, and roll it down to the base of the penis, smoothing any air bubbles as you go. 7. After ejaculation, pull away from your partner and roll the condom off. 8. Discard the condom in the trash. If you flush it, it may clog your pipes. The Campus Health Pharmacy sells a variety of different condoms. You can even buy in bulk – 100 condoms are only $14.99.

“We’re hoping to get people from all sorts of backgrounds.” said Trevor Wagner, an English senior and publicity director for Persona, “Not just the creative writing, English and journalism kids. We want anyone who is an undergraduate of the school to feel like they can join.” New committee members will be asked to read a collection of writings submitted by other undergraduate students throughout the semester which can be anything including poems, screenplays and short stories. All content reviewed by the board will be anonymous to avoid favoritism and will only be revealed if it is chosen to go into the magazine. People who wish to contribute materials are advised not to be a part of the committee. “There have been people in years past that have been on the selection committee one year and decide to take a year off the next to submit some of their work,” Schiraldi said. Apart from deciding what pieces go into the paper, the selection committee will also have the opportunity to approve the layout of the magazine and vote on a cover. Last year, the board was able to develop the current logo for Persona. “They (the committee) ultimately got to decide what made it in the magazine and what didn’t, and out of that we really had a lot of fantastic stuff in it last year,” Wagner said. Persona’s yearly issue is unveiled to the public every April for purchase in The UA Poetry Center, followed by reading of some of the content in the magazine.

The U.S. News rankings are just one of many international and national rankings, she said. “We don’t want to play to the rankings,” Vito said. “But it’s good to be aware of the way people are assessing the university.” The UA’s rank has remained fairly consistent over the years, according to Kasey Urquidez, assistant vice president for Student Affairs and Dean of Admissions. The ranking is subjective and does not include areas like undergraduate research and number of tenured faculty, where the UA is strong, she said.

Rankings do influence prospective students, said Rafael Meza, director of undergraduate recruitment for the Office of Admissions. The office uses the UA’s overall ranking as well as specific program rankings to give students an idea of the university’s strengths. Though rankings may be a starting point for students, other considerations such as the campus experience and financial aid play large roles in their decisions, Meza said. “It’s all about the fit,” he said.

Extending Loughner’s treatment would be a kindness Kristina Bui Daily Wildcat
y now, Jared Loughner’s mugshot is familiar. The photo — released shortly after the Jan. 8 shootings — shows Loughner bald, mouth tilted up into an almost-smile. In the wake of the attack that killed six and wounded 13, it wasn’t hard to look at the photo and think, “This man is incredibly sick.” Now, Loughner, 23, has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and in treatment for nearly four months. In May, he was declared “mentally unfit for trial” and sent to a facility in Springfield, Mo., where at times he has been forcibly medicated with psychotropic drugs. Prosecutors say Loughner needs another eight months of treatment to be made competent for trial. His lawyers though, have objected to forcibly medicating him and have asked a federal court to deny an extension of treatment. Prison doctors first began medicating Loughner against his will in June to alleviate his symptoms of schizophrenia. The next month, a federal appeals court ordered the prison to stop in response to a challenge by his lawyers. But almost immediately after the court’s order, prison doctors resumed medicating Loughner. They said he had become violent, and was a danger to himself and others. Earlier court filings have said Loughner spat at his lawyers, and once threw a chair. But according to Judy Clarke, Loughner’s attorney, Loughner’s treatment “has done nothing to affect his delusions or … the hallmarks of Mr. Loughner’s schizophrenia.” Furthermore, she argued in a filing on Friday, “even after some 60 contiguous days of antipsychotic medications, he continues to be psychotic. He is now severely depressed, tearful, restless, agitated and psychotic.” Loughner has reportedly been on suicide watch since July, and prison officials have said Loughner paces in circles in his cell, screams loudly and cries for hours at a time. Clarke argues that these are signs Loughner’s condition is deteriorating. Still, prosecutors say a psychologist at the Missouri facility believes that “within eight months, the defendant will be made competent.” There’s little use in Loughner’s case to lament what could have been handled differently. Arizona has cut tens of millions of dollars from behavioral health services since 2008. Pima Community College saw a troubled student, and did what amounted to very little. Surely his parents saw warning signs. There must have been obstacles every step of the way leading up to Jan. 8, and these are impossible to return to. That’s why the decisions made about Loughner’s treatment matter so much now. That’s why it’s important to summon compassion for a man who killed six people (including a little girl), critically wounded a congresswoman and injured 12 others. It’s impossible to go back and correct every misstep, which is why it’s important to examine Loughner’s case with all the care he deserves. What Loughner did was a terrible, horrible thing, and a trial may bring closure to some of the grief he caused. But the trial is only part of a reason to medicate him. Medicating him would be a kindness. If he is a danger to himself and others, if the symptoms of his condition could be suppressed, there is no reason not to. Clarke’s arguments against an extension of his treatment in Missouri are clearly a defense tactic meant to make it easier for her to say, “Look, my client is crazy and hopeless.” Furthermore, the idea that just because Loughner is 23 means he can decide what is best for him relies on the idea that he’s fully capable. But if the symptoms of schizophrenia reveal themselves between the ages of 19 and 25, and the symptoms are debilitating and fill you with delusions, age clearly has little to do with your reasoning and ability to decide whether you need treatment. Extending Loughner’s treatment not only makes him competent to stand trial, offering an opportunity for some semblance of justice for his victims and their families, but it’s better for him in the long run too. — Kristina Bui is the copy chief.

Eating too many White Castle hamburgers is not a disability Martin Kessman, a resident of New York, is suing his local White Castle restaurant because he was too obese to fit in their booths. Kessman, a 64-year-old stockbroker has filed suit, claiming that cramped booth seating violates his legal rights, protected under federal law. Kessman, a 6-foot, 290pound man, is suing on the grounds that White Castle failed to accommodate him to sit in a booth under the Americans with Disabilities Act. He is seeking money from White Castle for post trial compensation and his own legal fees for the lawsuit. Upon a quick glance of the Americans with Disabilities Act, being overweight does not qualify as a legitimate disability. Martin says that he slammed his knee into a post during his April 2009 visit when trying to squeeze into a booth. White Castle offered to reseat him in a folding chair or more accommodating seating. When interviewed, Kessman said he still continues to eat at
White Castle, despite his lack of satisfaction with the restaurant. Kessman has forgotten that he is a stockbroker, not a lawyer. He says that he fits just fine in other restaurants like McDonalds, Wendy’s and Burger King, but maybe a 290-pound man should quit eating fast food if he isn’t happy with his inability to fit in certain seats. While we don’t know the extent of his personal medical records, his admission to continually eating fast food can leave us with a likely assumption that he in fact caused himself to be obese. If in fact Martin does have a legitimate disability, what doctor would continue to recommend that his patient eat greasy, unhealthy hamburgers at White Castle or any other unhealthy fast food chain? White Castle, like most other restaurants, has the right to refuse service to anyone. Why has White Castle not refused
him service? Perhaps Martin should lay off the sliders smothered in cheese for a while and focus on healthier alternatives if he is so dissatisfied with his “disability.” He should not take his personal dilemmas out on White Castle for the poor choices he has made. Mr. Kessman needs to quit wasting everyone’s time and resources. To rehash an issue from 2009 that he is dissatisfied with is nothing less than pathetic. He is wasting the time of an already backlogged court system in addition to lawyers and White Castle representatives. Even if he doesn’t think he is wasting his own time, Kessman should reconsider where he invests it. Perhaps more time at the gym might better serve him and his “disabilities.” — Joshua Segall is a management information systems senior. He can be reached at email@example.com.
MAILBAG There’s more to a woman than her pants In response to “Pants preserve the wonder” (Sept. 14): I’m very disappointed in the Daily Wildcat for the sexist content in Wednesday’s paper. The article “Pants preserve the wonder” by Kevin Zimmerman was a particularly bad example of a piece that reinforced old notions of women’s value and continued the idea that men get to police women’s bodies by deciding what they wear and why. No one’s legs contain a “public record of their personalities, habits, transgressions and successes.” Legs contain flesh, bone, muscle, sweat, and possibly scars, hair, clothes and tattoos. A woman’s personal history is found by getting to know her, not by following the trail of her legs up to her crotch to find out purely superficial things about her. Talking about “reducing the worth of the ass” or the thigh is a completely unacceptable way to talk about women’s bodies. Do you and other men gauge the value of your own self and body by the commodity of your ass and legs? I know that I don’t. When you talk about “putting forth the work to find out the truth,” without being spoiled by a preview of ass or leg, you’re talking about pursuing women purely as sexual objects. This idea that men are the pursuers and that women are here purely to be pursued, discovered, and explored is a misogynistic world view. Men don’t get to decide what women wear. As people with their own rights, women get to
decide for themselves what to wear. Female bodies aren’t inherently sexual and shouldn’t be treated that way, like that’s their only value. By telling women that they should only be wearing pants when the weather is still in the 80s and 90s, you’re telling them that their comfort and their personal decisions are worth less than your pursuit of sexual gratification. I’m all for the excitement of exploring bodies through healthy and safe methods, but you don’t get to decide what devalues another person. You can make your own judgments about who you date and have sex with based on the “wears pants” criteria, but an article like this is really demeaning and unnecessary.
that women were presented as valueless aside from the surprise or disgust that men will get when women remove their pants. The article was simply inappropriate — mostly because it is offensively sexist, but also because wearing pants is a topic that wouldn’t otherwise pass as newsworthy. I’m sincerely disappointed that this article was written, and that it was successfully published. At the very best, it doesn’t appear to me that you understand the responsibility that comes with the power of reporting — especially for a public institution. I hope that, at best, you probably didn’t (and perhaps still don’t) fully understand why your words were so offensive. Perhaps you — and anyone else who saw or approved the article —Kaleb Stephens, — should spend some time with a women’s ecology and evolutionary biology sophomore studies professor or contacts at the Women’s Resource Center to understand how painful the remarks may have been to fellow Wildcats. I hope to see a sincere apology that Pants are neither newsshows an actual understanding of why this worthy nor appropriate was wrong. Sincerely, topics In response to “Pants preserve the wonder” (Sept. 14): As an educated male graduate of the U of A, I am both shocked and disappointed at the sexism in this article. It reflects poorly on all of us — and is also a terrible failure with regard to the Daily Wildcat’s mission statement. Alumni everywhere read publications and want to feel connected to the school and not disgusted by the things that are published. There were plenty of irresponsible things in the article — especially the degrading way

Police Beat By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat
Man breaks windows at DHOP A University of Arizona Police Department officer received a phone call on Tuesday from a concerned parent of a sorority member on campus. The parent wished to report an incident that had occurred at Delta Delta Delta sorority during the sorority’s “DHOP” fundraiser event. He said his daughter told him that a couple of male guests had tried to access the second floor, which was off limits during the event. A sorority member told the men they were not supposed to be upstairs and asked them to leave. One of the men grabbed the woman by the shoulders and pushed her against the wall, yelling “Bitch, I’m a Pi Kappa!” A window was broken during the scuffle and the men left immediately. The parent said the incident went unreported and that his daughter believed the woman involved was unlikely to report it. He did not know the name of the woman. The officer told the parent that police need a victim’s name in order to file a report. He gave the parent the contact information for the sorority’s chapter adviser. Another officer contacted the sorority president. There is no further information at this time.
When a stranger calls A UAPD officer responded to Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall at 1:37 a.m. on Wednesday to speak with a student who reported she had received harassing phone calls. The student said she received 11 phone calls on her cellphone from a blocked number between 1:21 a.m. and 1:32 a.m. that morning. She said she had also gotten strange calls in July when she lived at home. The caller never said anything during the calls and the student did not know who might be calling her. She told the person on multiple occasions to stop calling. The student did not wish to pursue criminal charges at the time and the officer advised her to speak with her cellphone carrier for assistance.
Beach cruiser cruises away A student approached a UAPD officer at 8 p.m. on Thursday and reported that her bicycle had been stolen. The student said she had locked her white beach cruiser with a U-Lock to the bike racks in front of the Sigma Kappa sorority house approximately two hours earlier. When she returned, she noticed the bike and the lock were gone. She was able to provide the serial number for the bike, but had not registered it with Parking and Transportation Services. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.
Green card given red light A UAPD officer near the Harvill building at 11 p.m. on Thursday responded to an odor of burning marijuana. The officer approached three men just south of the Slonaker House. The men identified themselves and offered to let the officer search them. One of the men took out a plastic bag of marijuana from his pocket and gave it to the officer. He showed the officer his medical marijuana card, which was from California and had expired on Sept. 5. He told the officer he had brought the marijuana with him from California even though he did not have it in a prescription bottle. The man was cited and released for possession of marijuana. The other men were referred to the Dean of Students Office for smoking marijuana.

Women’s interview style
Men’s interview style
• Conservative suit (gray, navy or black) and shirt. The suit can be a skirt or pants suit, but make sure the skirt is long enough that it doesn’t reveal anything. • Conservative shoes. Strappy heels, heels taller than 4 inches, flip flops and sandals are strictly prohibited. • Light makeup and perfume. Too much of either of these can seem trashy at an interview. • Professional hairstyle and neat, manicured nails. No hot pink, polka dot or chipped nail polish. • Keep the jewelry simple. Dangly earrings, clunky bracelets and huge dangly necklaces are inappropriate for a professional interview. • Most important: Bring your portfolio and resume with a simple purse or briefcase.
Do’s and don’ts of interviews
• Gray, navy or black suit of a solid color. • Long sleeve shirt that matches the suit and fits well. • A tie to match the suit (and please none of these skinny ties that hipsters think are cool right now). Wear a normal tie. • Don’t overdo it on the cologne or aftershave, please. This is not a club. • Nice, professional dress shoes with dark socks (same color as the suit). • Professional hairstyle and a clean shave. •No jewelry. (A watch or something is okay, but let’s not look like mobsters here.) • Most important: Bring your portfolio and resume.

An interview is a time for employers to get a feel for the interviewee: his or her work ethic, clarity in answering questions, ability to make eye contact, knowledge of the field and most important, the look. Businesses are not going to want someone who appears sloppy, unkempt, too casual or lazy. Here are some tips for guys and girls to look their best on interview day:
Some tips for both
• Turn off (not place on vibrate) your cellphone and iPod. • Cover any tattoos, or piercings not on your ears. • Bring a breath mint before the interview, but don’t chew gum. • Get ready the night before. Proper planning prevents poor performance. • Be confident. It will empower any interviewee to rock your interview. Good luck!

Arcade in a Box leads local game scene By Joe Dusbabek Daily Wildcat
Arcade in a Box, located on Grant and Craycroft roads, quietly carved its place among the last few years as one of the Southwest’s premier old-school arcades. Owner Ed Farias said his store might be the “biggest custom arcade-stick builder in the world.” With 3,000 sticks made over the last three years, he says demand just keeps growing. On top of personally building joysticks for fighting game fans, Farias works hard to avoid the fate of other famous arcades in the Southwest. Some impressive names now populate the list of defunct game centers, but Arcade in a Box has thus far avoided failing. “We’ve been super fortunate here,” Farias said. “In Tucson, it would be really hard to make it without a lot of luck.” With the fighting game scene growing steadily since the release of “Street Fighter IV” in 2008, Farias made many recent changes with Arcade in a Box. Primarily, he changed his focus from video game fans in general to his most reliable audience: fans of fighters.
“When the economy got tougher, we decided to focus on fighting games because of the crowd,” he said. “They’re just really loyal. Now people will come here and we’ll throw up just about any fighting game they want to play. There’s always someone up for a particular game on any given night.” The new approach has clearly worked, as Arcade in a Box now routinely hosts some of the best competitive players on the circuit. Latif Alhmili, a Tucson resident known simply by his first name in the scene, took second place in “Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition” at EVO 2011 in Las Vegas this year. EVO, short for the Evolution Championship Series, is the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. Familiar names and competitors like Mr. SNK, Said3S, and Renic are also regulars of Arcade in a Box and the routine highlevel play has led to other opportunities for Farias and his arcade. Arcade in a Box just began regular streaming online for weekend tournaments, according to Farias. “It’s been an interesting experience. Kind of tough to figure out, but we hope to make it something really good.”

birthday parties pop with the texture of piñatas, and pancakes flip between shafts of autumn light during those beautiful if highly fictional mornings that seem to stretch for miles. The form, somewhere at the intersection of “Mean Girls” and “The Office,” feels just right. The mockumentary-esque touches enable some of the more succinct comic moments; in one scene, Parker’s assistant has occasion to advise, “If you’re going to sign ‘XO,’ you might as well sign, ‘please enter me.’” Additionally, the sports commentator technique of scribbling on the screen for the audience’s benefit works to great effect. As Parker unloads her mental chaos, a scrapbook-type series of visuals accompany her quintessential voiceover and culminate in an improbable yet understandable,
“Kegels? Bagels.” Thus, if the downtroddenworking-mother thrust is heavyhanded, at least the details are easy on the eyes. More, the little things in “I Don’t Know How She Does It” paint a pretty vivid picture of how she does, in fact, do it. That is, with a tame, socially acceptable level of spunk and a refreshing “thank you” motif that nearly redeems the segments that dully solicit pity for working mothers and their occasionally compromised status in the white-collar workplace. A serious question: Can you get over a laughably small scope and some serious upper-middle class assumptions underpinning a flimsy plot? You should. As the movie says so cheesily of motherhood, the little moments will make it worth your while.

FALL CAREER DAYS 2011, SUPPLEMENT TO ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT •
Before You Click Send… By Carol Zick, Career Services You’ve spent hours perfecting your resume and struggled to fit all your personal data into those frustrating little online boxes. Your job application is almost ready to send! So what’s left? Why, the cover letter, of course. The cover letter is a simple, three to four paragraph letter which emphasizes your unique qualifications and highlights your greatest area of expertise, you! So what could possibly be so difficult about that? Evidently more than one might think according to Bob Killian, marketing guru and founder of the prestigious Chicago advertising firm, Killian Branding. “Attached to every résumé is an obligatory cover letter, which seems to have a difficulty rating of 11, since that’s where we find the most tortured prose ever set to paper.” Consider the following excerpt from a real life cover letter sent to Killian Branding: “I expect the position to pay commissary to that of its value, as well as to the performance completed.” The example above illustrates one of two major problems Mr. Killian sees consistently in cover letters. He explains: 1. A writer uses legalese because he lacks confidence in his authentic voice. From potential interns trying to ace our Creativity Test, to MBAs immersed in BizSpeak, tin-ear applicants feel they must inflate their prose, diligently combing the thesaurus to select —
sigh — precisely the wrong polysyllabic clinker. 2. Many people fail to understand the mission. Hey, kids, it’s attached to a résumé. You don’t need to explain what you’re doing, to repeat what’s in the résumé itself, or to explain why résumés exist. You want a job. (Let’s see: that simple declarative sentence took four clear one-syllable words.) Call attention to yourself. Separate yourself from 499 other applicants by animating the personality behind the cut-and-dried credentials. Mr. Killian also states that, unfortunately, proofreading seems to be a thing of the past, “Three-fourths of all cover letters sport at least one spelling error. Most are puzzled by punctuation. No small number are festooned with what we call the Shoot-Me-Now Errors (there/their/they’re; its/ it’s; to/two/too).” So, ask others to proofread your documents and, of course, don’t forget to spell check, but beware, sometimes not even spell check can save you as the following real life examples from Killian Branding’s Cover Letters from Hell illustrate: • “I’m looking for work because even though my company was profitable last year, this year they are expecting a large defecate.” • “Does your printed material scream “LOOK OVER HEAR”? If not, why pay the high price for something that doesn’t catch the readers attention? ”
• “Who’s better to spew out incite, than a college senior … ?” • “… being a member of the (name withheld) Organization, and, braise yourselves, even participating in a folk dance ensemble …” In addition, Mr. Killian says it’s important to do your homework, “Applicants often write to an abstract “Sir/Madam,” instead of to an easily-researched human being who probably just disposed of 12 other résumés that morning.” Luckily, UA students need never be guilty of using generic salutations thanks to Career Search Employer Database which is available on UA Career Services’ website. Career Search provides an in-depth profile and specific contact information for literally millions of organizations. In addition, business cards from hundreds of past recruiters who have interviewed through the On-Campus Interviewing Program are available in the Career Information Center on the 4th floor of the Student Union. Other cover letter detractors, Killian says, involve stating the obvious, “Applicants might spin their wheels with the non-starting “My name is ______,” which provokes us to ask “Are you highlighting your name to impress us with your celebrity status?” Bob Killian’s ‘Word to the Wise’: “An error-free letter is now so rare that the minimal care required to send a letter with zero defects, combined with a few crisply written simple declarative sentences, will, alone, guarantee a respectful reading
of a résumé. Maybe even secure an interview.” Mr. Killian suggests reading The Elements of Style by Strunk & White to hone your writing skills. And, before you click send, stop by UA Career Services during ‘Walk-ins’ for a quick, painless and free critique of all your job search documents. Check for Walk-in hours at http:// www.career.arizona.edu/Calendar/. For more real life examples from Killian Branding’s Cover Letters from Hell, visit their website at www.killianbranding.com. You’ll also learn about the interesting art of ‘branding’ in today’s world. And, while you’re at it, why not apply for an internship or watch a free online webinar conducted by Bob Killian himself?

How to Stand Out in a Tough Economy by Stacey Kretzmann, PHR Talent Acquisition Manager, Enterprise Holdings, Inc. It’s not a surprise that the job market is competitive with the unemployment rate at an all-time high. This is a fact. What can be a mystery is how to establish your personal brand and how to differentiate yourself from the competition. How can you stand out from your competition in a positive way?
Presentation & Professionalism
Image IS important. You need to make a favorable first impression, starting with your correspondence via email, phone conversations, and during your face-to-face interviews. Go back to the basics. From my daily experience recruiting candidates, I can tell you that not everyone remembers these simple tips! • Wear a professional business suit to the interview, don’t assume any employer is “business casual” unless you’re told NOT to wear a suit. • Create a professional email address and change your inappropriate ring-back tones and outgoing voicemail messages to a recruiter-friendly version. • Don’t answer the phone if you’re not in a position to talk. My pet peeve is when I call a job seeker and ask if they have a few minutes to discuss their application and qualifications. They proceed to tell me they do. I’ve had to compete with traffic, trains, heavy breathing while on the treadmill, screaming children, blaring radios, parrots squawking and barking dogs in the background! (I can’t make these things up!) Simply schedule a time to talk without distractions. I expect your full attention, and I will give you that same courtesy. How you communicate via email, phone, and in person are critical when it comes to building your “personal brand image”.
During a job search your main goal should be to sell yourself and market your personal brand. What can you bring to the table? What sets you apart from the millions of other job seekers? • Play up your technology skills, especially those skills related to social networking, the web, and various forms of new media. Most companies look for new grads that are proficient with cutting-edge technology. You have a competitive advantage over those of us with years of work experience but may lack the technology-savvy skills you possess (me included)! • Focus on transferable skills, not lack of experience. In addition to your professional work and/ or internships, highlight your school, volunteer and non-profit experience. Focus on what you achieved in those roles instead of your lack of professional or corporate work experience. Don’t omit summer jobs or part-time experience that you think is irrelevant. What did you learn if you worked at a fastfood restaurant for example? I would argue teamwork, customer service, multi-tasking and the ability to make decisions quickly on your feet. Don’t downplay any experience that could be
relevant to the job you’re applying for. Frequently students omit this critical information from their online applications and resumes, and I’ve passed over them because those valuable skills were not listed. If you don’t have demonstrable skills related to the job you want, what can you do? • Join an association or club related to the industry you’re interested in. • Obtain a certification or special training to learn technical or specialized skills (accounting, human resources, technology, etc.). • To learn about the particular industry, follow employers on Twitter, Facebook and company blogs… which leads to my next topic of networking….
Just because you have 1 million connections on LinkedIn does not make them your “network.” You have to put yourself out there. Just posting your profile on LinkedIn or other social networking sites is not the way you’ll land your next job. The goal is to hear about a job before it’s posted. Most job seekers find their positions via personal contacts I’ve heard the stat being as high as 70-85%. As a Recruiter, 30-50% of my total hires come
from employee referrals. You have to consistently grow and develop your personal and professional relationships in order to use them now-when you need it most. Where do you start? Establish a list of contacts such as your parents’ friends, friends of friends, recruiters you’ve met on campus, alumni, Career Services contacts, professors, etc. The possibilities are endless. “Find a blog that is relevant to your career goal and become a frequent commenter on it”, said Laurence Shatkin, author of “2011 Career Plan.” From personal experience, I can’t stress how important it is to meet with recruiters and company representatives on campus. The majority of U of A students I hire are from personal meetings on campus (job fairs, info sessions, mock interviews, employer panels, etc.), not from a resume or application online. Several departments and colleges hold networking events solely for this purpose such as Career Services, Eller College and the TJL Center for Retailing, to name just a few.
Managing the Process
The two most common concerns I hear from job seekers is that they are overwhelmed with the process and/or they apply online and never hear back from employers; both are valid concerns. Most recruiters are doing more with fewer resourc-

es these days. Your follow up is critical. Email or call the employer if you have a contact. Know your facts (what position you applied for, the date you applied online or submitted your resume, and who you’ve been in contact with so far). Keep notes on these activities plus any first, second or final interviews you’ve completed. One way to make a bad first impression is not being able to vocalize why you’re interested in a particular position or worse yet, not knowing what position you applied for! When I first speak with an applicant on the phone I always ask, “What got you interested in applying for Enterprise?” Some common replies include, “I don’t know. I just saw the posting on Careerbuilder.com and clicked apply” or “I’ve applied to so many companies, I honestly can’t remember.” Not the best way to make a first impression, wouldn’t you agree? Create a spreadsheet with your job search activity, the job numbers or ads you’ve answered, and the responses you received. You should keep a detailed file on those employers you’ve completed a phone or face-to-face interview with. How else can you be strategic or remember which tactics worked and which ones didn’t? If not, you may be spinning your wheels. I’m not saying it’s easy, but it IS manageable!

Immature mistakes doom Wildcats
Five plays that sealed Arizona’s fate By Dan Kohler Daily Wildcat
Wilkerson scores on fourth and one
After Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck connected with receiver Chris Owusu for 39 yards with four minutes left in the first quarter, Arizona managed to hold the Cardinal rushing game to a 4th-and-1. Instead of kicking the field goal, Stanford head coach David Shaw decided to go for it. Running back Anthony Wilkerson ran a counter sweep to the weak side, which left the Wildcats blind, and scampered into the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown run, putting the Cardinal up 10-0.

By Alex Williams Daily Wildcat
For the Arizona football team, it was the same old story on Saturday against No. 5 Stanford. The Wildcats suffered another lopsided loss, this time 37-10, making it seven straight games without a win against an FBS team.
Arizona’s first Pac-12 Conference contest was another game with dismal rushing output, and most glaringly of all, another contest marred with debilitating mental mistakes from Arizona. “We’re young in a lot of areas, and our maturity shows up against good football teams,” head coach Mike

Stoops said. “I don’t know what else to tell you. That’s part of the growing pains you go through.” Heisman Trophy frontrunner Andrew Luck burned the Arizona secondary for 325 yards on 20-of31 passing. Luck wasn’t as sharp as usual but found a wide-open receiver on several plays — including both

Missed field goal No. 2
The Wildcats received the ball to start the second half and it looked as if the lagging running game was starting to pick up. Arizona running back Keola Antolin rushed for 49 yards on the first three plays of the half, but back-to-back incompletions forced the Wildcats to set up another field goal. Salazar again came out to attempt the 36-yarder and missed it wide right, essentially deflating any momentum that the Wildcats gained in that first drive.
The offside call on the fourth down
With Arizona trailing 23-10 at the end of the third quarter, cornerback Shaquille Richardson batted down a ball intended for Owusu on third down, forcing Stanford to punt on their own 27-yard line. As Stanford punter David Green snapped the ball, the play was blown dead and Arizona was called for an offside penalty, resulting in a first down for the Cardinal.
Zendejas could earn starting spot Saturday By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
New kicker, same old results. Junior place kicker Jaime Salazar missed two crucial field goals in Saturday’s loss to Stanford, prolonging Arizona’s notorious kicking woes that crippled the Wildcats last season. “Those are points,” quarterback Nick Foles said. “Those are points we need. It’s like you’re missing a wideopen layup. You’ve got to get those points. We’ve got to figure that out. For us to be successful, we’ve got to be successful on all sides of the ball.” Arizona gave Salazar a chance to cut Stanford’s 16-10 lead to three right before the first half with a 45yard attempt. Salazar pushed it right, leaving the Wildcats empty-handed after driving 51 yards in 1:17. The junior college product had a shot at redemption to start the
With 1:22 left on the clock before halftime, UA quarterback Nick Foles was running a two-minute drill to perfection. The Wildcats marched their way downfield from their own 21-yard line to the Stanford 43 when Foles threw one up to Juron Criner in the end zone. Criner was hit and bobbled the ball before it fell to the grass. A pass interference call set up a 45 yard field goal attempt that Jaime Salazar kicked toward the wrong side of the goal post and that sent the Wildcats into the locker room down by six points instead of three.

Think of the qualities that come with your ideal car. Not too big, good bang for your buck, not too flashy and always dependable. You want something that can take you from point A to B safely and smoothly. For Stanford head coach David Shaw, running back Stepfan Taylor
is a prime example of his dream car, and Taylor was in four-wheel drive for the No. 5 Cardinal’s 37-10 victory over the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday night in Tucson. “Stepfan’s our Cadillac, as our offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton started calling him,” Shaw said after
As a result of the offside call, the Cardinal continued to march down the field as time expired in the third quarter. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Stanford had the ball on the Wildcats’ 34-yard line. Luck dropped back and fired to a wide-open Levine Toilolo, who bolted into the end zone for a touchdown that put a dagger into the hearts of the Arizona faithful. After Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson hit the extra point, the Wildcats trailed 30-10, and the game was already over with 14:54 remaining on the clock.
More holes, more problems for Stoops’ squad 92 rushing yards on 44 carries, good for 2.1 yards per carry average. “Our inability to have some balance in our offense will continue to keep us from becoming a good football team,” said head coach Mike Stoops. And then there’s the pass protection. When Mike Schmitz Foles had time to throw against the Cardinal, Daily Wildcat he was lights out. There’s a reason he completed his first 17 passes for 183 yards and a score. Wildcats quickly found out why they’re not hey have no balance offensively.

that has plagued the Arizona defense through three games in 2011, something that cornerback Trevin Wade said can be traced back to the Wildcats’ youth and inexperience. “You’ve got to read your keys,” Wade said. “Just like driving. If you see a red stop sign, stop. Don’t go. When you get one person that don’t read their keys, you saw what happens.” Sophomore safety Marquis Flowers admittedly contributed to blown coverages, something that stems from little experience playing a team like Stanford that uses different formations and motion to create mismatches. “They start shuffling around, guys start losing guys,” Flowers said. “Me included. We start losing a running back. Some of us didn’t know who we had. They do a great job of trying to confuse a defense and they had wide open receivers because of it.” But both Flowers and Wade said that Stanford didn’t do anything different than Arizona expected after

the game. “He’s just the car that you trust, you know what you’re going to get.” Shaw’s trust in his junior back was exemplified in Taylor’s 153 yards on 22 carries over the course of the game. “He’s going to be steady for you and when it’s there he’ll break a big one,” Shaw said. “He was awesome tonight.” Despite not crossing the goal line, Taylor’s bull mentality behind a rock solid offense line dominated the Arizona run defense. “(Taylor’s) patient, he’s quick, he’s got a low center of gravity,” Shaw said. “He finishes runs going forward. He’s not the biggest guy but he’ll drag a tackler for another couple of yards.” Taylor’s ability to move the ball kept the Stanford pro-style offense intact and the dynamic ground game was able to open up the play-action for quarterback Andrew Luck, who had another solid outing in throwing 20of-31 completions for 325 yards and two touchdowns. Despite Luck missing one of his favorite targets in tight end Coby Fleener, who went down with concussion-like symptoms in the first quarter and never returned, the Cardinal quarterback still managed to pick apart the Arizona defensive scheme
watching film on the Cardinal. “It was all the exact same,” Wade said. “Everything’s the exact same.” After the Arizona defense held its own in the first half — the Wildcats trailed 1610 at halftime — the offense wasn’t able to hold up its end of the bargain. Kicker Jaime Salazar connected on his first field goal of the day, a 27-yarder, but missed on his next two attempts. Had Salazar been able to hit on the two misses, which came from 45 and 36 yards, the Wildcats would have been tied at the break. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to get points when you play a team like Stanford,” Stoops said. “You don’t get any points, and that deflates your football team.” A more mature team may have been able to shake off any disappointment stemming from those missed opportunities, but the Wildcats weren’t able to gather themselves for the second half. “With our team, we have to do things right,” Stoops said. “You get exposed sometimes when you play top teams. Hopefully we’ll be better because of it.”
by the game’s end. For the majority of the first half, it seemed like Luck didn’t have his typical pocket presence and the Wildcats capitalized on it. They were able to pick up their coverages and play as a solid unit, something that hasn’t happened too much so far this season. Arizona managed to only allow one touchdown and force three field goals throughout the first 30 minutes of regulation. But as the game wore on, so did the Wildcat defense. Luck turned back into his dominant self and put the Cardinal in position to score 21 unanswered points in the second half. The emergence of tight end Levine Toilolo, who led the Cardinal with 102 yards on only 4 receptions, was obviously something that the Wildcats didn’t prepare for. Several times over Toilolo found himself deep in the slot without a Wildcat defender within 10 yards of him. Nobody on the Wildcats’ defense decided to pick him up, and Luck made them pay. In the first play of the fourth quarter, Luck snapped the ball, found Toilolo completely uncovered, and the tight end ran it into the end zone. “You get to show the tight ends some love every now and then for working hard in the trenches when they catch a ball,” Luck said after the game.

Synthetic drug sales boom on the internet Mcclatchy Tribune
In the secretive world of online drug dealing, an underground website named Silk Road entices shoppers with a wide range of illegal substances — from Ecstasy and other synthetic drugs to heroin and high-grade marijuana. The site, launched in February, is one of many new online outlets fueling a sudden and dangerous surge in synthetic drug abuse nationwide, a Star Tribune investigation shows. Of 86 drug sites that were examined, 64 do not appear to have existed even just two years ago, according to Internet Exposure, a Web design and research firm that analyzed traffic data for the Star Tribune. Unique visitors to those sites soared from 122,090 in June 2009 to 404,469 in June 2011. The sheer volume and clandestine
nature of these online sales are making it difficult, if not impossible, for authorities to stop illegal trafficking of dangerous drug products in this lucrative, anything-goes virtual marketplace. Just two months after Minnesota started enforcing a law banning many synthetic drugs, the products — typically sold as bath salts, plant food, herbal incense and research chemicals — remain widely available and easy to purchase from online retailers, the Star Tribune investigation found. Minnesota lawmakers already were moving to ban the substances when a mass overdose at a house party in Blaine this spring left a 19-year-old man dead. The synthetic hallucinogen that killed him was bought online. Last month, when the Star Tribune surveyed 20 popular websites that sell synthetic
Man: Where the hell are my keys? Woman: Oh, I put them in my bra. Man: And I thank you for it. — On Deck Deli in the Park Student Union Submit your overheard on Twitter @OverheardAtUA
drugs, just four sites blocked sales to Minnesota and other states that have enacted bans. Many websites offered to ship their products anywhere, telling shoppers it was their responsibility to figure out whether their purchases were legal. Other websites falsely claimed their products “were legal in all 50 states.” “You can rest assured that there are no illegal or harmful substances in any of our products,” claimed wholeearthpacking.com, which shipped a container of Bay Spice XO to the Star Tribune on Aug. 25. “We just have you and Mother Earth in mind!” But a lab test performed for the Star Tribune revealed that Bay Spice XO contained JWH-210, a chemical specifically outlawed in Minnesota as of July 1. The website did not respond to the newspaper’s subsequent inquiries.

XC dominates in Tucson By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat
Running stride for stride for the majority of the race, sophomore Elvin Kibet and junior Jen Bergman led the No. 10 Arizona women’s crosscountry team to a commanding victory at the Dave Murray Invitational in Tucson. In the men’s event, freshman Lawi Lalang had a spectacular debut, coming in first and carrying the team to a first overall finish in the event as well. For Kibet, the victory instilled confidence, but with that, she said there are still improvements to be made. “I feel great,” Kibet said after recovering from her first-place finish. “I am really excited because I didn’t expect to win it. “I think (the race) gives me more motivation really with myself, and I get more confident. I can do much, much better.” Kibet took first place after separating from Bergman near the end to finish with a time of 16:22 in the women’s 3-mile race, edging her teammate by just seven seconds.
That level of competition was not on display in the men’s side as Lalang beat the second-place finisher by 54 seconds, posting a time of 20:06 in the men’s 4.25-mile run. “I think it was OK, but I still have to work on some sides (of racing),” Lalang said. “For me, I think it was my first time doing a cross-country so I need to get used to running fast.” In addition to Lalang, sophomore Patrick Zacharias finished third overall and second in points while freshman Kenji Bierig finish sixth overall and fifth in points, giving the UA first place with a total of 34 points. ASU finished second with 64 points and NAU took third with 72 points. In the women’s race, the dominance of the Kibet and Bergman made the total scores even more lopsided than the men’s. The Wildcats finished first with 18 points, as NAU was second with 45 points and Central Arizona third with 101 points. “(The UA women) all looked really good today,” assistant coach Erin Dawson said. “As a team that was
our goal today — to run as a team. We are going to go to Roy Griak next week, and that’s when we are going to have some people doing racing from the gun.” The Wildcats travel to St. Paul, Minn. on Saturday, for the Roy Griak Invitational which will feature much stiffer competition. “This race is good preparation,” Dawson said. “We just went through the motions of getting ready for a race.” Even though it was more of a warm-up event for the Wildcats, the performances of the top runners made a deep impact for fellow teammates. When Zacharias was asked about the team’s goals for the season, he said chasing Lalang will push the team forward. “As a team we are looking to just get as close to (Lalang) as we can,” Zacharias said. “Obviously he is one of the top runners in the nation right now, and we are trying to work as a group to kind of close that gap.” Head coach James Li was also impressed by the performances of
V-ball splits in Oregon By Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat
The Arizona volleyball team couldn’t swim well in the Ducks’ pond, falling to Oregon on Friday before taking charge and rebounding Saturday against the Beavers. On Saturday, the Wildcats defeated the Beavers, 3-1 (23-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-17). Senior middle blocker Cursty Jackson led the team with 21 kills, and freshman outside hitter Madison Kingdon treaded closely behind her with 20 kills. Meanwhile, senior opposite Courtney Karst tallied 14 kills for the team. Arizona (9-2, 1-1) had a scare at the beginning of the match, letting the Beavers take the first set. The Wildcats were coming off their first conference loss the night before against the No. 16 Oregon Ducks 3-0 (25-23, 25-10, 2520), and the two matches were starting to look similar. “I think our confidence was key,” Jackson said about the Wildcats’ loss to the Ducks. “Everyone was just a little nervous starting conference. I think Oregon State was a little better, actually, but we just came out and were just not mentally prepared.” Head coach Dave Rubio agreed nerves
were a significant reason for the loss. “We were anxious, uptight and never really got in a flow,” said Rubio in a press release after the Oregon game. “It’s unfortunate, because we were in position to win game one and didn’t and we never got comfortable. As a result, we lost.” There wasn’t a repeat performance against the Beavers. After the team lost the first set, it regained control and came back to win the next three games. “This was a really gutsy win for us,” Rubio said. “With the circumstances that they were — playing poorly the night before and the way it started — we really fought our way back tonight.” Two freshmen starters who also made notable contributions were middle blocker Rachel Rhoades and setter Chloe Mathis. Rhoades had six blocks, while Mathis made 57 assists for the Wildcats. The focus in practice this week will focus on serving. “We really need to go in there on Monday and serve aggressively,” Jackson said. “There were a lot of service errors in the Oregon game, I know I personally had four. We need to get our serves in when it counts. Especially if the person before you misses, we have to make sure the next person gets it in.”

Both the men’s and women’s Arizona cross-country teams came out of Friday’s Dave Murray Invitational meet in Tucson with first place finishes.
Lalang and Kibet. “I don’t remember in the past anyone running any faster (than Lalang),” Li said. Overall the men’s team had four runners score in the top 10, and all nine runners made it in the top 50 overall. A total of 99 runners fin-
ished the event on the men’s side. The women, who ran in several large packs through the race, had nine of the top 10 overall finishers, with only one NAU runner disrupting the Wildcats near-perfect mark. All 14 of the runners for UA finished in the top 22 overall.
Soccer ends losing streak with tie By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat
The Arizona soccer team kicked off the weekend with a six-game losing streak in which they only scored a total of two goals. After tying Texas Tech 0-0 on Sunday to end the losing skid, the Wildcats finished their non-conference schedule with a 0-7-1 record and without any real improvement in their scoring total. The Wildcats put on arguably their best performance of the season versus Texas Tech, a game that reached the two overtime periods after both teams failed to score a goal through the entirety of regulation. The main reason the team was able to bring the game into two overtime periods and finally avoid a loss was due to a stellar performance by senior goalkeeper Ashley Jett. “Ashley came up big,” head
coach Lisa Oyen said. “She made some really, really great saves today, especially in overtime.” Jett spent the night making acrobatic, diving saves that were the driving force behind the Wildcats’ team performance. Her best moment of the game took place in the beginning of the first overtime period, when Texas Tech’s Taylor Lytle nearly ended the game. “I was trying to do whatever I could to not let them score since I am sick and tired of losing,” Jett said. “The girl took the breakaway, I made the initial save and then it popped back out to her, and I put my legs up and she (Lytle) kicked it right into them.” On Friday night, the Wildcats faced Pacific University at Mulcahy Stadium. Two minutes into the game, the Wildcats managed to do something they
haven’t done very well thus far — score a goal. Unfortunately, it was an own-goal, the first of three scored by Pacific in a 3-0 victory. The own goal, however, doesn’t tell the whole story about the team’s performance this weekend. Sunday’s tie was a good sign for the Wildcats, considering that the team was playing without standout freshman Julia Glanz, who received a red card against Pacific on Friday night. Also, Texas Tech’s shellacking of ASU on Friday to the tune of 5-0 was a cause for worry. “(The tie) is a great step forward,” Jett said. “We got the monkey off our back by not losing tonight and now we go into the (Pac-12), which is the best conference in the nation. We’re on an upswing now so I think it’ll benefit us from here on out.”
