Time to face the food UA group teams with Health Department to raise obesity awareness By Michelle A. Weiss DAILY WILDCAT
Eating healthy is not something students always think about doing. To combat this, the Pima County Health Department, with help from the UA College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, continues to
promote healthy choices to help prevent obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded the Communities Putting Prevention to Work program grant as a two-year effort, said Don Gates, the program coordinator at the Pima County Health Department. Last year, the Pima County Health Department received $15.75 million to promote better exercise and nutrition, according to a press release. “It’s a very significant effort to create policy or systems changes that
drive healthier behavior,” Gates said. The campaign’s main focus is to try to convince elementary and high schools to change their policies so that students can be better educated about nutrition, he said. The media campaign and the website are small parts of this effort. Healthy eating promotion in schools is more for children under 18, Gates said. About 70 UA students have identified themselves as wellness contacts in

STUDENTS GATHER FOR ANNUAL ADVISEMENT FAIR
No More Deaths study shows many suffer from some short-term abuse By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT
made it easy to locate different majors because you knew which category each major fell into. Soto-Delgadillo added that students who worked with the center in the past recommended grouping majors under themes to create a more efficient fair. David Regina, an undeclared freshman, said the fair solidified his interest in architecture and gave him the opportunity to speak with graduate students and a professional architect. “I learned a lot about my major and what I need to do,” Regina said. “I was really interested in
In a new report, No More Deaths alleges rampant mistreatment of migrants by United States Border Patrol agents along the U.S-Mexico border, including the denial of basic human needs. No More Deaths, an Arizona-based activist organization whose mission is to bring an end to violence, suffering and death on the U.S.-Mexico border, recently released a report that said mistreatment of migrants in short-term Border Patrol custody is common and that there is not adequate oversight to prevent abuse. The report, “A Culture of Cruelty,” was released publicly last Wednesday. Katerina Sinclair, a consultant at the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences, provided free statistical consulting for the report outside of her duties at the university and said the results showed widespread mistreatment, surprising No More Deaths members. “When you shock No More Deaths people, that’s pretty amazing,” she added. To compile the report, No More Deaths volunteers conducted 4,103 individual and group interviews with 12,895 migrants in Nogales, Naco and

Gone to meet their major By Alexandra Bortnik DAILY WILDCAT
Choosing your direction in college can be a major ordeal. The Center for Exploratory Students looked to help ease the decision with its annual “Meet Your Major Fair,” held yesterday in the Student Union Memorial Center Grand Ballroom. The goal of the fair was to help students find what major best suited them, since some students have only a general idea of what they like to do, said Lecticia Soto-Delgadillo, director of the Center for Exploratory Students. This is the second year the center grouped
majors into pods according to overarching themes. Each pod had a designated color, and as students entered the fair, they received a map of all the pods and their corresponding colors. Attendees also received a pamphlet of possible questions to ask staff, faculty and students working at the pods. “(The pods) are working well and the participants seem to like it, and the students seem to be able to find at least their interest area and see what majors would correlate with that interest,” Soto-Delgadillo said. Laura Gummere, an undeclared freshman, said the fair helped her find direction, and that the pods

Yesterday’s “ReadOUT, ACTout” theatrical performance on the UA Mall caught the attention of students rushing by and drew in spontaneous listeners. The performance included the reading of four banned children’s books, including “And Tango Makes Three” by Justin Richardson, which was read in both English and Spanish. The book, which tells the true story of a same-sex penguin couple raising an egg, has been placed on the American Library Association’s top 10 challenged books list every year since 2006. Zachary Karon, musical theater junior and director of “ReadOUT, ACTout”, said that once a book is banned it can’t be found in public libraries, schools or mainstream bookstores. “Growing up gay, it would’ve been nice if I had children’s stories that I could’ve read with my parents, or even if I could’ve given those children’s books that were banned to all the kids that ever bullied me before,” Karon said. He added that the benefit of performing the

readings in a public space was that it made them available to anyone passing by, and that his hope was to inform people who may be against queer literature, homophobic or anti-gay. Krystle Rowe, an animal sciences junior who was drawn in
by the performance while walking on the Mall, said the theatrical performance was an effective way of getting the attention of people who weren’t aware of the issue. “If I had to pick one goal it would

The UA’s National Society of Collegiate Scholars received a gold star for its efforts in volunteering and community enrichment during the 2011 NSCS convention held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, this summer. “It’s a great experience,” said Samer Shamsuddin, a senior studying political science and near Eastern studies. “We have consistently gotten the award over the last few years. Our members really put in the time and thankfully we were able to get it again this year.” The award was given to chapters of NSCS that exceeded the standards of the organization by creating a recruitment campaign on their campus, holding an introduction ceremony for new members, involving themselves in student mentoring programs and holding campuswide events to promote integrity and a sense of community. “It’s something that you have to earn, and we worked really hard to get that award,” said Karina Hernandez, a psychology senior and president of the NSCS UA chapter. “There were a number of different things we had to touch on to be considered, and everything was taken into account when they picked us for the award.” Last year, the UA chapter involved
itself with community programs such as mentoring children at middle schools in Tucson Unified School District and cooking more than 30 turkeys for a Thanksgiving dinner for refugee families through the Somali Bantu Project, a nonprofit organization for refugee resettlement. “That was a memorable experience,” Hernandez said. “We got to talk with them and bonded with the kids and the families. That was really special for us, to be a part of something that really made their night and feel welcomed to the community.” The UA chapter was only one organized event away from receiving the Platinum STAR Award, which is the highest honor the society offers. In an effort to qualify this year, the chapter will be changing up its routine by adding high school mentoring and becoming more involved with the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, through which it will provide support to children undergoing cancer treatment. “This organization is really developed by the ideas of the students and planned by the students,” said Mark Riley, the NSCS faculty advisor and head of the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems

Engineering. “I think we are heading certainly in the right direction of receiving the platinum award, but the whole goal of the chapter is to give back the community, and that is the primary focus.” The NSCS organization boasts more than 300 chapters on college campuses in the U.S. The UA chapter of NSCS began taking students in 1999, and continues to accept members who show interest in community service. “The effort is just genuine in our members and is something they enjoy doing,” Hernandez said. “It is not just something to put on a resume, I think the quality of our work is what sets us apart from that.”
Agua Prieta, in Sonora, Mexico. The report showed 2,981 migrants were denied food, 863 were denied water and countless others received food and water that was deemed unsuitable while in Border Patrol custody. In total, volunteers identified 32,075 cases of abuse, and 10 percent of interviewees reported incidences of physical abuse. Additionally, 869 people, including 58 minors, said they had been deported separately from their families and many were repatriated to unfamiliar cities with no family or friends to help them. Border Patrol agent Colleen Agle said the agency appreciates the report and

leading the effort among the student population. A UA group with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences “takes the lead” on the school contacts, he said. In addition, the YMCA is responsible for the worksite wellness efforts and is also in contact with UA staffers to promote healthy options in vending machines and menus in the Student Union Memorial Center. Arizona had an obesity prevalence of 24.3 percent in 2010, according to the CDC. They also report 20.2 percent of Pima County adults were physically inactive in 2008. At a national level, 33.8 adults in the U.S. are obese and 17 percent of children or adolescents are obese, according to the CDC. “I eat a lot of meat and fruit and a lot of veggies if I can, but it’s kind of hard on campus,” said Lauren Scheller, a sophomore studying studio art and theater arts. “Overall, if I don’t have to eat junk food, I won’t.” Abigail Oberg, an art education junior, said she thinks obesity is prevalent, but not necessarily on the UA campus. She said most college students eat cheap food that isn’t always healthy, but she and her close friends are healthy eaters. “I don’t eat meat or anything,” Oberg said. “I’m pretty into healthy stuff.” Certain restaurants in the student union are also making efforts to offer healthier options to the campus
community. Cellar Bistro has made an effort to provide these options by incorporating sustainable meats and more fresh vegetables into its menu, according to Jon Levengood, the retail manager for dining services of the Arizona Student Unions. Sabor, a new Mexican restaurant in the student union, “tries to get away” from fried tacos and offers fresh corn tortillas, he said. “A lot of students request healthier options, and there is a pretty educated consumer base these days,” Levengood said. In addition, he added that wheat bread is offered at On Deck Deli and Fuel, the new restaurant in the Student Recreation Center, and that Three Cheeses and a Noodle expanded its line of salad offerings. The Pima County Health Department sponsored supplemental nutrition and worked on adding salad bars in lunch lines at schools. It also works with the community food bank to increase the number of school and community gardens, Gates said. “So, not just increasing the amount of fresh food that’s grown locally, but also in providing a venue for gardeners to sell or distribute their surplus produce,” he said. Another part of the campaign is to create more “walkable spaces,” Gates said. “A lot of people don’t make the connection between bus riding and health, but the fact that if you have to walk to the bus stop and from the bus stop to work or to your school … you’re getting that extra 20 to 30 min-
will address these concerns. Agle said that when the Border Patrol discovers that employees are violating migrants’ rights, they are disciplined accordingly. “We want to make sure people are treated with respect and dignity,” she said. According to Joseph Wilder, director of the Southwest Center at the UA, such abuse is plausible. Wilder said this could be a shift in the overall mission of the Border Patrol, which used to be to save lives. Wilder, who has crossed the border many times on field trips with students, said the purpose of the Border Patrol now is to prevent the flow of drugs, immigrants and ultimately terrorists into the United States. Today, the border is “bristling with big young guys with a lot of guns,” he said. “They are looking for that bomb that’s coming through.”

utes of exercise a day,” he said. Scheller said she exercises every day or every other day by running with friends or playing racquetball. She and Oberg said they think the UA could benefit from a healthy eating campaign such as the one being implemented in schools for children, they said. Though Scheller said she doesn’t think the UA population is obese, there is a lot of junk food available on campus. The campaign is meant to draw attention to this issue. It presents some of the barriers to a healthy lifestyle such as the scarcity of healthy foods in certain neighborhoods and the lack of safe places to exercise, Gates said. The website provides ways for people to make small changes in their lives for better health. Organizations like worksites or schools will also be provided with information on resources they can use to help make their facilities healthier. For example, this includes recipes, exercise guidelines and information on how to set up a worksite wellness program, Gates said. About 70,000 Pima County employees are taking part in the goal to implement more worksite wellness programs in terms of nutrition and activity groups.
Jeremy Slack, a geography graduate student working on a project similar to No More Deaths’, said he believes mistreatment of migrants by the Border Patrol happens because of the size of the agency. Over time, the Border Patrol has taken on the responsibility of tackling drug trafficking, national security and immigration, making it difficult to oversee. Slack said he believes good things come out of the Border Patrol, but “we should always strive for something better in our authorities.” According to Sinclair, it’s necessary to acknowledge that the mistreatment of migrants is a human rights issue that goes deeper than the Border Patrol. “This is about how we as a country treat people,” she said. “We need to decide as a country whether we are willing to let people violate our human

be to attract people to the issue who wouldn’t normally take interest, to draw in those who haven’t really considered banned books or queer literature or how important and significant it is, and for them to look at it and see that it’s just a children’s story and the fact that this is challenged or banned is ridiculous,” Karon said. Danielle Carlos, a sophomore studying English, said she’s passionate about reading and views it as freedom of speech and expression. “I think it’s really good to bring attention to the fact that these books are being challenged, and this is really cool that they’re doing in English and Spanish,” Carlos said.

rights in the name of security.” Students are taking a stand on migrant rights as part of the campus chapter of No More Deaths. Daniel Curiel, co-founder of the club and a senior studying political science and history, said he hopes the report will raise students’ awareness of the obstacles migrants face on the border. “At the U of A,” he said, “you can really just isolate yourself from other people’s woes and other people’s problems.” UA chapter members will work with No More Deaths to raise awareness and petition the federal government to take action. Curiel said he believes the migrant rights issue impacts the UA community and that students can help change the situation. The UA chapter of No More Deaths will meet today at 2 p.m. in the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.
aware, and that she had no idea there were children’s books written with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in mind. “I think it’s important because a lot of people grow up and don’t even realize that they’re kind of being forced into looking at certain ideas,” De Soysa said. “In a lot of children’s books you see two parents that are of the opposite sex, and you only see children behaving in certain ways, which kind of puts people into boxes and makes them think that there can only be one way to do things.” Laura Neff, an environmental sciences junior, said she doesn’t agree with censorship. “I think (“ReadOUT, ACTout”) is really awesome because you don’t see these kinds of books around in libraries,” Neff said, “so I think it’s really awesome to show other points of view and other types of families.”
attend the fair in the future. As students left the fair, they were handed an evaluation form for giving feedback and suggestions for next year’s fair. “There were a couple different career paths I might’ve chosen and I didn’t know which one I exactly wanted. I got information about all of them, and I think I’m one step closer,” said Mary Martin, a sophomore studying pre-family studies and human development.

For epicenter of quality, B Line’s sure to deliver By Joe Dusbabek Daily Wildcat
Each week, the Daily Wildcat gives suggestions on where to go to enjoy your weekend. Much has been written about The B Line on Fourth Avenue and its many opportunities for people-watching, but it also possesses a severely underrated ambiance, perfect for a hot date. The menu offers 26 lunch and dinner entrées and every single one of them is affordable and delicious, even if the selection is small. Most entrees come in around $8 to $11. Both the speed and service remind patrons throughout their dining experience that this isn’t an average chain restaurant. Dining patrons order at the counter as opposed to your typical seated-ordering routine. A playing card lets servers know which entrees go to which polished wood tables. Just about everything on the menu is made to order but thankfully the quick service doesn’t reflect on any sort of fastfood, flash-fried, frozen dinner experience. The B Line also boasts a very Southwestern-oriented flavor. Most dishes on the menu include familiar tastes of chiles, peppers and other spicy additions — so even the pastas have a bit of fire to them. Try a fetajack burro ($7.95), a spicy black bean cheeseburger ($8.95) or a heaping helping of two mahi mahi fish tacos ($10.95) served with rice and beans for a sample of that Southwestern flair.

In terms of atmosphere, The B Line nails it head on: Yellow tulips grace the countertops of the bar-style seating, and dimmed lighting and an elegant décor accent the varied menu. It’s as common to see loving couples sharing a bottle of Italian Chianti red wine as it is to see UA students grabbing dessert out of the restaurant’s revolving glass case, which speaks to the mass appeal of the joint. Altogether, the restaurant easily earns a recommendation. If you’re looking to actually make an impression on that special someone by showing some class (as opposed to grabbing some Taco Bell), The B Line dresses to impress. And if you’re just grabbing a quick glass of wine with some pals, it’s hard to do much better.

Tips to save the first date Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat
What situation involves excessive perspiration, countless sticks of gum and awkward silences? A standard first date. First dates are those crucial first impressions that can either lead to lust, love or mixed messages. Nowadays, it’s difficult to know what to plan or say, because the politics of dating are constantly changing. People are now falling in love online through dating sites like match.com or datemyschool.com. In the September issue of the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, a study determined that someone’s level of understanding of the other person during an inperson first date is how each of them will know whether they’ll have a lasting relationship, a hookup or a breakup. The key word here is “in-person.” With these online dating sites, people might bypass the first steps of physically going out to meet someone, but their first date is inevitable. You will eventually have to meet the love of your life in person and if the study holds true, then your perception of your online love might change. If anything, it’s important to meet that special someone to make sure they used an accurate profile picture or weren’t on “To Catch A Predator.” Whenever you do go on that first date, there’s more to avoid then sweaty armpits, garlic breath and toxic cologne. And let’s hope all men learned what not to do with their “hair gel” from the 1998 film “There’s Something About Mary.” Here is an updated list of a few things students should avoid on first dates: Avoid the “classic” date Going to dinner for a first date is like going to a job interview. Think about it, you’re sitting across from a person you barely know, asking random questions to try and see if this person fits your criteria as a potential candidate. It can be stuffy and too personal. Then back that interview up with two hours of sitting next to each other in silence, and you have an awkward scenario. Instead, go for something active or go to an event where you can talk throughout it. That way if the conversation begins to falter, you have the event for backup. Avoid future talks Even though it seems like everyone is getting married in their early 20s these days, it doesn’t mean you have to talk about it. Women are probably guiltier of this, saying things like: “I want to be married by the time I’m 24 and have one on the way by 25.” Pump the brakes. It’s a first date and with that talk, it will probably be the last. Talk about interests and passions and less controversial topics. No politics, religion or money. Avoid the ex-files We already talked about what not to talk about, but this one is so important that it needed its own spot. Do not talk about past relationships. Do not bad-mouth your ex. In fact, don’t gossip about anyone. It sounds trashy, catty and immature. Avoid the cellphone It should be an absolute deal-breaker if the person whips out his or her phone during the date. Your date should be capturing all your attention. If they aren’t at least have the decency to fake it. Unless it’s an emergency, keep it on silent and show some respect. And, don’t “check-in” on Facebook or make a Facebook status about your date. Avoid drunken heart to hearts Meeting for happy hour is less intense than going out to dinner, but don’t let the first-date jitters influence you into sucking down two cocktails on an empty stomach. Exert some self-control so you’re not slurring your speech or traveling into “TMI” territory. If you two are heading to a house party, the same principle applies — don’t get sloshed. Maybe hold back on your Olympic beer pong skills until the next date. This will also avoid drunken hookups, which aren’t respectable methods of getting to know your dates … at least not their personalities. — Kelly Hultgren is a journalism junior.

More students in college, fewer students passing elementary Trending up:
Continuous Facebook changes: Facebook seems to to roll out new updates and presentations every week. Among the newest features is their plan for displaying a “timeline” that depicts a user’s most memorable moments (even ones that happened pre-Facebook). Also, Facebook has added a rolling news feed in the upper right hand corner that continuously displays posts from friends. Soon after users discovered the changes, pictures of a smiling Xzibit (from the MTV show “Pimp My Ride”) began popping up on newsfeeds with the words “Yo dawg I herd you like Facebook so we put a Facebook in the upper right of yo Facebook so you can Facebook while u Facebook.” Truer words have never been said, Mr. X to the Z. We can only hope even more rapid changes can come about.
Free banking: Bankrate.com released findings that fewer banks are allowing free checking accounts. It now costs an average monthly fee of $4.37 on non-interest checking accounts and you have to pay a massive fee to get out of it. Luckily though, debit card fees are still rare for the most part. It looks as though currency that isn’t plastic is continuing to lose its worth in America. No, not the international value of the American dollar; the worth of using paper for currency. Barely anyone older than16 carries cash on them as is, and if fees for checks continue to become the norm, or continue to increase, expect to see an even heavier dependence on plastic currency. Debit and credit cards are well on their way to completely dissolving physical paper money.
Ways to express your fandom: The U.S. Postal Service is removing a long-standing rule that prohibited the production of stamps displaying persons who were not already deceased. This means the floodgates have opened for stamps depicting living popular people like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga or, heaven forbid, Charlie Sheen. The U.S. Postal Service has encouraged citizens to get on Twitter and Facebook and suggest five people to commemorate. It’s clearly a desperate appeal to members of the younger generation, most of whom probably don’t even know how “snail mail” works or where to place the stamp on an envelope, let alone the current postage rate. Here’s hoping that the five persons immortalized are of actual meaning and true significance. No better way to stamp your generation as dumb than by selecting halfwits. Although, by the time younger generations evaluate us, it will be so far in the future that stamps will serve no greater purpose than scrapbook decorations. Giving it the college ‘try’: Although college enrollment rates have been on the rise for the last decade, the amount of students who actually see it all the way through isn’t moving very much. The findings were released by a nonprofit group Complete College America, and The New York Times attributes the low graduation rates to the problem of acquiring more credits than are required for a degree. Things like low-level classes that don’t count toward a major but qualify a student for upper division courses, stand in the way of completion of a degree. But perhaps it’s the rapid influx of unqualified students being accepted by universities in an effort to increase revenue. The article reports that one in five students pursuing a bachelor’s degree are required to take remedial or developmental courses and they rarely see them all the way through.
Sense in public education: To be fair there hasn’t been much sense in public education in the post-“No Child Left Behind” world we find ourselves in. However, in California, Mississippi and Texas, things are falling even more off the deep end. All three states have enacted “parent trigger” laws that allow parents to enact sweeping changes in their children’s public school if the school is consistently failing — 51 percent of the parents must sign a petition and can cause massive changes in personnel. While any parent can argue that they know what’s best for their child, and they’re mostly right, it doesn’t mean they know a thing about evaluating, hiring or firing staff. Pointing the finger is always so very easy to do. But before you point, consider what you’re doing to contribute to the solution of the problem. If your child isn’t proficient and you’re concerned about their progress, perhaps there’s something you’re not doing at home. Of course students go to school to learn but before they go to school and after they come home, it’s important that their home life be stable and conducive to a healthy learning environment. A prisoner’s reading options: An Alabama prisoner, Mark Melvin, was prevented from reading a book that details the imprisonment of African Americans in the South following the conclusion of the Civil War, up until World War II. Melvin was prevented from reading the book, which was sent to him by his attorney, because the prison feared it would incite violence. Melvin, a white man, filed suit against the prison officials and the state commissioner of corrections. Wait a minute, a Southern state is preventing someone from reading a book? No way. It’s not like the Southern states have had some sort of muddled past of preventing people from educating themselves, right? It’s so very odd that a Southern state would stand in the way of someone trying to read a book, not to mention a book about the treatment of black people after they were freed from slavery. —Daily Wildcat
MAILBAG Grad school still a great option In response to “Master’s: All hype, no gain” (Sept. 27 issue): I am responding to Michelle A. Monroe’s (column) in which she argues that graduate school is no longer a viable option for the majority of people. It has never been. It continues to be a great option, however, for those who seek higher earnings, greater (but not foolproof) economic security and higher independence and intellectual rewards. Although it is certainly true that tuition is higher than ever and that a master’s does not guarantee a job, individuals with master’s and doctorate degrees have a lower unemployment rate and higher mean earnings than those with less education, even in this sluggish economy. For instance, the unemployment rate of individuals holding a master’s degree in 2010 was 4 percent and
for those holding a doctorate degree, 1.9 percent, compared to the unemployment rate of 5.4 percent for individuals with a bachelor’s and 7 percent for those with an associate degree. Mean earnings in 2009 continued to go up with education: $116,305 for those with a Ph.D. and $87,913 for those with a master’s, versus $68,812 for those with a bachelor’s and $49,835 for those with an associate degree. Considering that a master’s takes approximately two years and a Ph.D. approximately three and a half (years) beyond that, graduate education still seems an excellent investment. Although few graduate programs these days provide funding for master’s degrees, the UA, as well as top universities throughout the
country, continue to provide teaching and research assistantships covering tuition, health insurance, a stipend, fellowships and tuition scholarships to most individuals seeking a Ph.D. Furthermore, the demand for advanced degrees will continue to escalate — according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2018, 2.5 million more jobs will require graduate degrees — as the baby boomers retire and our globalized world becomes ever more complex. Now that jobs are scarce is the time to prepare. Many who’ve done the math have concluded that graduate school “may be the best place to ride out a recession.” — Maria Teresa Velez, Ph.D. Associate dean, Graduate College

Police Beat By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat
Under where? A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the UofA Bookstore on Sunday in response to a report of a shoplifter in custody. A bookstore employee told the officer he had observed a man take a hat and lanyard from a sales rack. The price tag fell off the lanyard and the employee saw the man stuff the lanyard into his underwear. The man then went to the register and paid for the hat. The employee approached the man outside and they went back into the store. The officer spoke to the man, who said he was in Tucson celebrating a friend’s birthday. While browsing the bookstore, he found the hat and lanyard. The man said the price tag fell off the lanyard and that he did not rip it off. He admitted to intentionally concealing the lanyard and not paying for it. The officer contacted a family friend of the man, who came and picked him up because he was younger than 18 years old. He was cited for shoplifting and released into the care of the friend.
Bash the windows out your car A UAPD officer went to Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday in response to a report of criminal damage. The officer spoke to a member of the fraternity who reported that the driver’s side window of his car was bashed out completely during the night. He said his car was parked on First Avenue just north of Second Street near the fraternity. One of the man’s neighbors told him they heard his car alarm going off repeatedly around 3 a.m. There was nothing missing from the inside of the car. The man wished to prosecute whoever damaged his car and filled out a victim’s rights form. The officer photographed the damage and informed the man of preventative measures he could take to make sure his car is safe in the future. There are no suspects or leads at this time.
Uninsured, out of luck A UAPD officer was on patrol near Speedway Boulevard and Campbell Avenue around 3 a.m. on Sunday when he observed a car run a red light. The officer stopped the vehicle and spoke to the driver, who identified himself with his Arizona identification card. The man did not have an insurance card. The officer ran a record check and found that the man’s license had previously been revoked and suspended. The officer arrested the man for driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance and for running a red light. He was released at the scene and the vehicle was impounded.
Bamboozled bicycle A UAPD officer spoke to a woman at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday who reported her blue mountain bike had been stolen from the racks at McClelland Park. She locked her bike to the east side rack at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with a cable lock and returned around 6 p.m. to find her bike and lock were gone. The woman was able to provide the serial number for the bike, but it was not registered with Parking and Transportation Services. There is no further information.

Arizona in a better place than before Despite losing last eight FBS games, Wildcats still maintain they’re much better than Stoops’ early years By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Colin Darland / Daily Wildcat
Arizona tight end Drew Robinson, 87, is becoming more important as the Wildcats are implementing more blockers into their running sets in attempt to up their ground production for backs like freshman Ka’Deem Carey, No. 25.
Tight end ready to shine Unheralded Drew Robinson quietly building a role as Arizona’s offensive schemes build around run game By Alex Williams Daily Wildcat
Tight end Drew Robinson didn’t have an ideal start to his career at Arizona. After transferring from Snow College in Utah, Robinson broke his foot just weeks after arriving on campus in time for the spring 2011 semester, putting him behind the eight ball when it came to learning the Wildcats’ complex offense. “It was way tough,” Robinson said. “I never really learned anything in the spring, so I had to do it all in the fall. It took me a while to get going.” But now that Robinson has spent longer than a month and a half getting reps and learning the offense, he’s earning more playing time — partly due to his ability to do a little bit of everything. That is something that offensive coordinator Seth Littrell said will make him a valuable asset in time. “He hasn’t been able to showcase everything much,” Littrell said. “But the biggest thing is in the run game, blocking and being a physical force and presence there. He’s also shown some flashes where he can go out and catch the ball.”
But what Robinson has done best during his time at Arizona is improve on a near-daily basis. After being named secondteam NJCAA All-America following the 2010 season, he’s gaining more confidence at the Division I level. “I think I’ve improved a lot,” he said. “Now that I’ve gotten going, gotten some more confidence (from) playing more, I’m playing better.” Littrell has seen the improvement too, and it may come as somewhat of a surprise after Robinson missed so much time during spring practice — the time when most of a player’s major learning and growth takes place. “He’s getting better,” Littrell said. “It’s tough because a lot of work gets done (in the spring). That’s why you recruit them and try to get them here by that semester.” But although Robinson made his name as a pass-catching tight end at the junior college level — he caught 28 balls for 326 yards and four touchdowns in 2010 — he’s most valuable to Arizona as a blocker right now. “We’ve got a good tight end who we feel is improving,” head coach Mike Stoops said. “(He’s) got to give us a physical presence at the line of scrimmage.” And even though Robinson doesn’t have a reception yet in 2011, he’s working to get a chance on Saturday at USC. “We have a lot of stuff for me this week,” Robinson said. “I’m excited for this next game.”
Arizona hasn’t beaten an FBS team since Oct. 29, 2010, and the Wildcats have been outscored 130-55 in their last three games. Statistically speaking, they’re one of the worst defensive teams in the country. But things used to be worse. “A lot of these guys weren’t here five, six years ago when we were pretty shitty,” said head coach Mike Stoops after Arizona was embarrassed by Oregon on Saturday. Losing used to be the norm for Arizona football. The Wildcats were the Pacific 10 Conference doormat under the John Mackovic regime. They were the Washington State of the early 2000s, winning only eight games from 2003-2005 and went a combined 11-13 the two seasons thereafter. With only four players and three coaches remaining from the 2007 team that went 5-7, most of the current Wildcats don’t know what it’s like to struggle. The majority of the 2011 squad arrived at Arizona for the Wildcats’ first bowl appearance in 10 years, or their second in two years, or third in three years. “I don’t think they know where it was when we first came,” said cornerback Trevin Wade. “We were just getting beat down and beat down against everybody.” Only Wade, wide receiver David Roberts, place kicker Alex Zendejas and quarterback Bryson Beirne experienced the days when Arizona football and losing were synonymous. But even then, Arizona hadn’t lost eight games in a row to FBS teams. In fact, the last time Arizona lost eight such games in a row was in 2002, when the Wildcats finished the season 2-10. But during that stretch, Arizona didn’t play five top-10 teams in eight regular season games like the Wildcats have since defeating UCLA in late October of last season. While Arizona’s current skid is undoubtedly bad for the program and certainly not what Stoops and his staff expected, the losing streak and uninspiring play doesn’t mean they’re headed back to where they were years ago, players say. “I’m not really worried about that. Four years ago it was a talent thing. When we’re going out there right now, it’s not talent,” Roberts said. “It’s not like it was here my first year when it was hoping to get wins.” The 2011 Wildcats have far more talent and a different mindset than Arizona teams of old. Defensive coordinator Tim Kish, who came to Arizona with Stoops in 2004, wouldn’t even compare this year’s team to the teams he used to coach. “Oh no. No, I don’t go there,” he said. “Short memory. This is a new team, new year.” According to Beirne, it doesn’t matter if the young players know where Arizona football came from or not — all they need to know is where they’re going. “They don’t need to know where we came from. They just need to know how not to act because doing what we used to do got us where we were,” Beirne said. “We’re not going to act like
Evaluation of Parrom’s status a month off
Arizona forward Kevin Parrom has returned to Tucson for classes and will begin rehabilitation following being shot in the right knee in New York on Saturday, UA basketball head coach Sean Miller said in a press release on Tuesday. “We will know a lot more about his return to basketball activities in a month,” Miller said in the statement. “At this time our focus is to provide him a comprehensive support system to allow him to progress to his full potential. Kevin, first and foremost, is fortunate to be alive.” Parrom was shot early Saturday morning after two men — one of whom was armed with a .22-caliber hand gun — entered his Bronx, New York, home. He was taken to the Lincoln Medical Center in stable condition and returned to Twitter with some positive messages Monday afternoon. “Thank you to everybody who reached out to me showing love I love all of yall for that !!! Now its all about recoverin! Zona Where U At ?!” he tweeted. Former Washington Huskies guard Isaiah Thomas, now of the Sacramento Kings, wished Parrom well on the Twitter, and Parrom’s response showed him to be in good spirits. “@Isaiah_Thomas2 thanks for the love. Idk what hurts more your shot that went in at the end of the game or the 1 I got this weekend smh lol,” Parrom said, referencing Thomas’ gamewinning shot against the Wildcats in the Pacific 10 Conference Championship game last March. Parrom also received support from friend and fellow Bronx native Kemba Walker, the former UConn Huskies guard who was drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats No. 9 overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. Walker was working out with Arizona managers Monday, according to Graduate Manager Danny Peters’ Twitter account. — Kevin Zimmerman

I worked under Jeff Blashill last year, who’s one of the best hockey minds out there, he’s now an assistant coach for the Detroit Red Wings. So kind of having that pedigree and coming through that line of coaching made me a strong candidate for sure. How have the players responded to having a new coach? So far it’s been great; we haven’t had any problems. The guys seem extra committed. The players have said that to me, that they are excited about the change as well, and they are excited about future of the program. I think we are definitely headed in the right direction. Why did you decide to take this job? Well a lot of reasons … being able to run your own program, and to be able to do that at a school like the University of Arizona, with the facilities like this, and a fan base that nears 6,000 fans a game for an (ASU) game, and to be able to live in Tucson, and to be able to have all those experiences. Has there been any effect from all the changes, any learning curve for the team? There is always a little bit of a learning curve but these guys jumped right in, head first. I’m pretty impressed with the work ethic. I think we have good leadership … We have some pretty complicated hockey philosophies here and they bought right in, and it’s been great. I’m really excited about opening up this weekend Friday and Saturday night. I think we are going to turn some heads.

that anymore. “People weren’t accountable, people didn’t work hard, people weren’t focused,” he added. “Having them know what happened five years ago isn’t a big deal. They don’t need to know that, they just need to know that’s not how Arizona is and this is how Arizona is now.” But if Arizona continues to slide as the Pac-12 gets stronger beyond this season, the Wildcats could very well fall back into irrelevancy once
again. In order to stay out of that dark hole the Wildcats once occupied, Arizona needs a fast start and a competitive performance against USC on Saturday. “It’s easier to play when you get down,” Stoops said. “That’s a hard reality that you need to look at. That’s something that we did five years ago. “It’s about attitude, it’s about growing up and that’s what we need to do.”

Colleges trying new ways to keep students from dropping out Mclatchy tribune
BOSTON — Things were going well for Job Asiimwe as he approached his final semester at Bunker Hill Community College here last winter. Then a toothache almost derailed his college career. Asiimwe, an immigrant from Uganda who’s been on his own since age 19, was close to graduating. He had been accepted to a bachelor’s degree program at a college in Vermont and his plan to become a lawyer seemed within reach — until something in his mouth began to throb. He needed a crown on a tooth that had begun to decay. But the procedure cost $2,000, more than he earned in a month, and it wasn’t covered by insurance. As close as he was to graduation, he considered abandoning his studies so he could earn the money. Asiimwe was on the verge of becoming
one of the surprisingly large number of American college and university students who fail to earn two-year associate degrees within even three years, or four-year bachelor’s degrees within six. “I don’t think many people know how sometimes just one medical event could affect your life,” said Asiimwe, now 22. Asiimwe was fortunate. Bunker Hill stepped in and paid for the crown with funds from a pool of foundation money. He finished the semester, graduated in June, and has now begun work on his bachelor’s degree. “I’ve seen other students drop out, not because they can’t afford tuition, but they can’t afford the other costs of coming to college — rent, health insurance, transportation,” Asiimwe said. “I was lucky.” More and more American colleges and universities are recognizing
that unexpected crises unrelated to academics are pushing people to drop out, especially as the economy stagnates. Under intense pressure from parents, taxpayers and politicians to improve abysmal graduation rates, the colleges are not only assuming a new role in helping their students over the bumps — they’re also keeping a close eye on students and even monitoring social media to detect early signs of trouble. “Our students are not sheltered from the economic problems of the country,” said Linda Byrd-Johnson, director of the U.S. Department of Education’s TRIO programs, which help lowincome, first-generation and disabled college students. “These kids are just like everybody else,” she said. “Some of them are struggling to make ends meet.”

Hollywood rehashes old favorites to create new silver screen success Arts & Life staff
chops. Of all the remakes weâ€™ll be seeing, count this one as most likely to be â€Ś well, not awful.
In what appears to be yet another attempt to annihilate the nationâ€™s collective childhood, Hollywood is rolling out a brand-new slate of spinoffs, sequels and reboots to keep us hobbling into cineplexes for the next three or so years. Chief among them is the recently announced â€œScarfaceâ€? remake, for which Universal Studios is currently scouting writers, and the widely regarded one-of-the-bestcrappy-movies-of-all-time â€œPoint Break,â€? which should never be remade for any reason, ever. Itâ€™s not for the faint of heart, but if you can stomach it, we at the Daily Wildcat have compiled a gaginducing list of some of the most shocking Hollywood spin-offs currently in development:
â€˜Point Breakâ€™ (1991) Originally starring: Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Gary Busey The original film, about an FBI agent who infiltrates a gang of bank-robbing surfers (Oh yeah, we know), is regarded by cinephiles as one of the greatest bad movies in history. The remake, announced earlier this month, will take the story out of the surfing world and drop it into the realm of â€œinternational extreme sports.â€? The only upside: Kurt Wimmer, who is known for his action genre expertise, will write the script.
â€˜Hasbro Factoryâ€™ Based on: Every Hasbro board game ever Pitched as â€œNight At The Museumâ€? in a toy factory, this idea is all but guaranteed to literally kickstart the biblical apocalypse. As of now, itâ€™s being pitched around Hollywood, though no writers have signed on yet (and weâ€™re hoping they donâ€™t). Come on, Tinseltown â€Ś Stop making board game movies. COurtesy of imdb.com
â€˜Total Recallâ€™ (1990)
Based on: The board game This oneâ€™s been in development for a while, but depending on the success of next summerâ€™s â€œBattleship,â€? it could be fast-tracked before we know it. The twist: Itâ€™s being helmed by filmmaking legend Ridley Scott (the guy who brought us â€œAlien,â€? Blade Runner,â€? and â€œGladiatorâ€?), meaning that while a movie based on the most tedious board game of all time might seem like a terrible idea at first â€Ś well, so did â€œThe Social Network,â€? and we all saw how that turned out.
Originally starring: Al Pacino This oneâ€™s hard to defend. A few days ago, Universal Studios announced its plans to remake â€œScarface,â€? but insisted itâ€™s less a remake than a â€œdifferent versionâ€? of the story weâ€™ve already seen. So far, little is known about the project, other than that it will be about â€œan outsider, an immigrant, (who) barges his way into the criminal establishment â€Ś becoming a kingpin through a campaign of ruthlessness and violent ambition.â€? Um, how is that not a remake?
Originally starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone Fans of the original â€” about a man who has a memoryimplant procedure that alters his perception of reality â€” cringed when news broke that the film would not only be remade, but would star Colin Farrell as Doug Quaid (shoes originally filled by Schwarzenegger). However, word on the street says the script is solid, and director Len Wiseman (â€œUnderworld,â€? â€œLive Free Or Die Hardâ€?) is known for his acting
from page 3
evaluation data and set it up so that we could answer the questions that we were interested in. What questions were you interested in answering with WhichClasses.com? Leichner: Which classes are good?Â Which classes are bad?Â Which classes are easy?Â Which classes are hard?Â And of course, all the same questions for professors.Â Then, when we put a nice user interface on it, we thought, â€œHey, it might be great for everyone to have this,â€?Â so we cleaned it up a little bit.Â Itâ€™s meant to be very fast and easy to answer those specific questions and get that information to people in a quick, informative and accurate way. Is that the difference then between this and RateMyProfessor? Gunsch: RateMyProfessor, you get the 5 percent of students who either really loved their professor, or had a weird grading issue that maybe wrecked the class, or the professor just
rubbed them the wrong way â€” and thatâ€™s not necessarily representative of the class as a whole.Â With TCEs, you sit everyone down in a classroom and you say, â€œFill this out.â€?Â You always have, you know â€Ś 65, 70-plus percent attendance, and itâ€™s easy to say that kind of figure is representative of peopleâ€™s opinions. Leichner: As compared to RateMyProfessor, the questions that were answered on the TCE reports donâ€™t provide â€Ś that sort of flavor, I guess?Â But, because they are a standardized set of questions, we can look across an entire department and accurately ask, â€œAll right, which professors are consistently rated more effective than other professors?â€? Have a lot of people been using the site so far? Gunsch: Actually, more than we thought would use it.Â Everyone who has talked to us has said theyâ€™ve gotten great information off of it, that they first look up things they already know and go, â€œOh, thatâ€™s accurate.Â Let me look up something I donâ€™t know and start judging based on that.â€?Â The only issue weâ€™re having is that right now, weâ€™re only really popular in two departments. Leichner: Right now the site is popular among computer engineers and computer scientists.Â But itâ€™s exciting, because
â€˜Buffy the Vampire Slayerâ€™ (1992) Originally starring: Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland The original TV series was great â€” but the early â€˜90s movie sucked as a total flop famous for its poor acting, a hackneyed plot and shoddy special effects. And they are remaking it without any help from the showâ€™s creator Joss Whedon, original cast or crew, and the showâ€™s cult following has even forged a petition to cease the movieâ€™s production. Not to mention the vampire craze is totally over. So if the established fan base isnâ€™t interested, why does Warner Bros think anyone else will be?
over the last two days, other peopleâ€™s traffic has sort of eclipsed our traffic working on it, which to us felt like a huge milestone.Â Weâ€™re starting to see a lot of searches on it that arenâ€™t just looking for things related to computers, which is great, because most people that go to UA arenâ€™t looking for things about computers.Â It means weâ€™re getting to spread out a little bit to a more diverse crowd than just the people we know personally. Do you guys see this growing beyond the UA? Gunsch: Right now, not really.Â Our motivation for it initially was, â€œHereâ€™s some data thatâ€™s useful to us,â€? you know?Â So as soon as we start to extrapolate from that, it kind of loses a bit of that personal benefit. Leichner: And the way we have it set up right now, itâ€™s dependent on the questions that are asked at the UA with their specific data.Â So even on a local level, you find complications with different departments doing things different ways. Why would people benefit from using WhichClasses.com? Leichner: Because it answers the simple questions you have about classes. Gunsch: Definitely.Â It answers all of mine, at least.
