McKnight out for season with ACL injury By Mike Schmitz DAILY WILDCAT
Arizona sophomore starting cornerback Jonathan McKnight tore his ACL on Wednesday and head coach Mike Stoops said he will miss the entire 2011 season. “It’s disappointing for Jonathan. He’s a terrific player and he’s had a great camp,” Stoops said after Thursday’s practice. “It’s just one of those
things. I feel very disappointed and sad for him and for our team. He’s a great leader for us and he’s an outstanding football player for us but it’s just the way things are going right now.” McKnight is the fifth Wildcat to tear his ACL since the end of last season — Jake Fischer, Greg Nwoko, Adam Hall and Willie Mobley are all rehabbing from the same
injury. Like a few of his hampered teammates, McKnight’s ACL tear was nothing more than a freak injury that wasn’t induced by contact. “He was just slowing down and it kind of came down on him,” described secondary coach Ryan Walters. “Nothing out of the ordinary happened, just a freak accident, man.” Although Arizona is deep at cornerback with proven
senior Trevin Wade and talented sophomore Shaquille Richardson, the injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for McKnight. The 5-foot11, 175-pound River Ridge, La., product was playing the best football of his career — he was the only cornerback locked into a starting spot — after seeing action in all 13 MCKNIGHT, 10

MAKING THEIR NETID UPON ADMISSION TO THE UA. IF USED CARELESSLY, CATMAIL CAN FORWARD UNWANTED MATERIAL AND PRESENT PROBLEMS TO STUDENTS. Online behavior is a cardinal indicator of the issues that students may encounter with CatMail , said Kelley Bogart, senior information security analyst with the Information Security Office. Personal information can be hooked away from students responding to phishing emails, which are designed by cybercriminals to imitate trustworthy organizations like a bank asking for credit card information. Bogart said the UA may send students email reminders to change their NetID passwords, but will never ask them to send confidential information through an email. Spam levels range drastically and are contingent on user habits and filter settings, Bogart added. UAWiFi is the safest wireless Internet connection students can use on campus. “UA Public (Wi-Fi) scares me,” Bogart said. “Your confidential information is in the air.” The UA Public connection is designed for visitors to use, not students. A banner page initially pops up detailing the risks of the unsecured service that can easily be accessed and used by criminals to steal private information. Bogart said connecting to UAWiFi is a simple process that only needs to be done once. More information can be found on the University Information Technology Services website.

Two years, two new UPH buildings Behavioral care facilities will extend new residential offerings to recent graduates By Conrad Pursley
106 / 79 Isolated T-Storms
105 / 78 Sunny
The recent opening of University Physicians Hospital’s two new behavioral health care facilities may mean better medical care for Tucson residents and more opportunities for UA
medical students. After nearly two years of construction, University Physicians Hospital opened the doors of the Behavioral Health Pavilion on Aug. 17. Two days before, the Crisis Response Center opened. The $66 million project was funded with taxpayer funds approved via separate bond measures in 2004 and 2006 that was approved by more than 60 percent of Pima County voters. The new facilities were built to relieve strain on Pima County’s emergency rooms, detention
centers and other resources. “It’s a huge success, a real win-win for the people of Tucson and Southern Arizona,” said Dr. Mazda Shirazi, medical director of the UA’s Emergency Department of Medicine and chief of staff at University Physicians Hospital. Shirazi said that in just one week, the volume of patients in UPH’s emergency room, which makes up the vast majority of hospital traffic, has increased by 20 percent.With increased UPH, 2
Optical Sciences chooses dean By Brenna Goth DAILY WILDCAT
For the first time in its history, the UA College of Optical Sciences is undergoing a change in leadership. Thomas Koch, director of the Center for Optical Technologies at Lehigh University, will replace James Wyant as dean of the College of Optical Sciences on Jan. 1. Wyant is stepping down to return to teaching or enter industry work, he said. The College of Optical Sciences, formerly the Optical Sciences Center, is one of the largest in
the country and accounted for 20 percent of the university’s invention disclosures in 2010, according to a report from the Arizona Board of Regents. Wyant has served as the dean of the College of Optical Sciences since its inception in 2005. The college grew under his leadership, gaining a new building, securing more funding and adding to its faculty. Wyant announced he would step down in April 2010. He knew Koch and thought of him as a possible replacement. “I really pushed him hard to apply,” Wyant said.
“I thought he was the perfect person for the job.” Koch said the college’s research and ties with different industries attracted him to the UA. He wants to continue his leadership in the same spirit, he said. “I think it’d be a little crazy to start offering changes before I learn about the people and the environment,” Koch said. “I think it’s easier to say the things we need to continue.” The college is larger than the center Koch OPTICAL, 2

Bracelets a recognition of kind acts By Eliza Molk Daily Wildcat
A new kindness campaign launched on Monday seeks to show what goes around comes around, or at least goes around your wrist. The campaign is a partnership between Ben’s Bells, a project to empower individuals through acts of kindness, and Step Up, Campus Health Service’s violence prevention education program. The program features Campus Health employees giving out bracelets reading “Be Kind. Step Up!” which individuals then pass on to those they witness doing good deeds. The recipient then goes online to share why they received it and enter the bracelet’s tracking number, located on the back, to follow where the bracelet goes. Erin Strange, a violence prevention specialist at Campus Health, said she initially got the idea for the campaign while at a conference in Philadelphia. Although other schools had kindness campaigns, she explained, they did not teach people how to care actively.

“We (Step Up) have a real appreciation for the acts of kindness we see on a daily basis,” she said. “With 40,000 students we can’t reach everyone with the Step Up program, but this helps us spread it further.” Strange and her colleagues passed out the 200 bracelets they had on Sunday at the New Student Convocation. They will be making about 5,000 over the course of the year, and additional bracelets will come out in waves. The bracelets will then be stocked at the offices of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, Counseling and Psychological Services, the Dean of Students Office and Campus Health. “With everything that the UA and Tucson has gone through lately, this is another way to make our community
a better place,” Strange added. Volunteers, including students and Campus Health employees, made the bracelets. In order to make them, clay is rolled and flattened, then stamped with the “Be Kind. Step Up!” logo. They are then fired, painted, glazed, stamped with the tracking number and fired again. Cassie Williams, a studio manager at Ben’s Bells, said the project is important because it allows people to recognize acts of kindness on a dayto-day basis. “Everyone is focusing on where they need to go and what time they need to be there,” she said. “This allows people to stop and be aware of others.” Karen Johnston, a student worker for the Oasis Program at Campus Health and Step Up, also said that the project is important because it provides a visual symbol of people coming together to help each other. “It’s a cool way for people to show Valentina martinelli/ their gratitude,” she said. “This will encourage people to do kind deeds Erin Strange, a violence prevention specialist at Oasis Resource Center, holds a handful of “Be Kind.

Most African leaders no-shows at famine aid conference Mcclatchy tribune
JOHANNESBURG — Most of Africa’s heads of state failed to turn up Thursday at the first African Union donor conference in Ethiopia to raise money for the Horn of Africa famine, leaving activists disappointed with pledges. Of the A.U.’s 54 member nations, only the heads of Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea and Djibouti participated in the conference in Addis Ababa along with the head of the transitional government in Somalia, the country hardest hit by famine. Critics accused African leaders of failing to make good on their rhetoric of finding African solutions for African problems. Activists said African leaders pledged about $50 million, but much of it was “in kind” assistance, with little detail offered as to what services were being offered. The African Development Bank, meanwhile, said it would donate $300 million for long-term development in the Horn of Africa. A.U. leaders had been under fire for delaying the conference for several weeks because various presidents had conflicts in their schedules. Nicanor Safula, spokesman for Africans Act 4 Africa, a coalition

The three intertwine because teachers must be current in the industry for the benefit of students, he said. “How do you know what type of things and opportunities and tools students need?” Koch asked. Wyant said he would like to see more collaboration with other departments under Koch’s leadership. He
of civil organizations, said the failure of African leaders to appear at the conference as the Horn of Africa faced its greatest crisis in two decades was “disappointing and embarrassing.” With 12 million people in crisis, and famine declared in many parts of southern Somalia, the United Nations has appealed for $2.4 billion to address the humanitarian crisis. Despite pledges of more than $500 million from the U.S., $228 million from the European Union and another $630 million from individual European countries, the appeal is still short of its target. It is Somalia’s worst famine in two decades and reportedly the region’s worst drought in more than 50 years. Tens of thousands of people have died and 1.5 million people have left their homes in Somalia in search of food. Five regions in Somalia have been declared famine-hit and another two regions are expected to follow in coming days. At the conference, Andrew Andasi, an 11-year-old Ghanaian who saw images of the famine on television and launched a radio campaign for donations, said he had raised $4,000. Andrew called on African leaders to help those in need, especially women and children.
said he advises him to continue incorporating a variety of subjects into the optical sciences education. “Continue to keep a very broad program here,” Wyant said. “It’s important to keep a broad base and look for areas of growth.” Koch plans on Thomas L. Koch learning from College of Optical Wyant as he assumes his role Science dean as the new dean. “I think the temptation to avoid is to think you need to make a bold statement right away,” Koch said. “You need to listen and learn for quite a while.”

Mugtaba Idris, a junior studying molecular and cellular biology, said he was satisfied with the security of his CatMail account. “People shouldn’t complain about the Goat Man either,” he said. “They apologized, that’s it. They don’t owe you anything.” Earlier this month, a crude image called the Goat Man was sent out on the UA employee Listserv, and the UA responded with an apology the next day. The sender was able to forward the photo because the Listserv was not moderated, meaning anyone on the Listserv could forward anything to everybody, said Cathy Bates, university information security officer with the Information Security Office. Bates said nothing like the Goat Man has ever occurred at the UA and the Listserv is now moderated
and the campus community should not worry about it happening again. She said it can be difficult to trace the sender, a sentiment Bogart echoed. “They could’ve hacked someone’s NetID,” Bogart said. “Who knows?” UAccess and Desire2Learn, course management systems that, along with CatMail, are probably the most used virtual student services, are heavily secured, and their systems regularly scanned. The likelihood of someone infiltrating them is nearly non-existent, Bates said. Like CatMail, student habits indicate how secure they will be. Bogart said at least one website allows students to bet on the class grades they will receive. A NetID is required to participate. “It (the site) sounds like a good way to ruin your life,” Kashkash said. Bogart strongly advised students to

East Coast braces for hurricane after quake Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — Hurricane Irene already was threatening the East Coast when a rare 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck Virginia on Tuesday, so it didn’t take long for many property owners to call in an expert. The phone calls “started coming in about 20 minutes after,” said Lisa J. Kuruvilla, an executive at ADTEK, a Fairfax, Va.-based engineering firm. Property owners understandably have been eager to assess quake damage in time to make any needed repairs before Irene arrives. Amid reports of cracks in the iconic Washington Monument and fallen ornaments on the National Cathedral, engineers say the hurricane should be cause for caution, not panic. While they say most area buildings are designed to withstand both the earthquake and the coming hurricane, they say residents can take steps to further reduce the chances of serious damage. Property owners have a few factors working for them, engineers say. First, by several accounts, engineers have found relatively little structural damage from the
never send confidential information via email or share NetID information with a friend. Students, faculty and staff can download free Sophos Endpoint Security software for Windows and Macs from the UA. Having a strong password is essential. “Passwords aren’t there to be a nuisance,” Bogart said. “If a hacker wants your information and you have a weak password, that’s it.” If a student suspects someone is using their account, they should immediately change their password. Students can also contact the Information Security Office for help or the 24/7 IT Support Center, which provides online, telephone and walk-in assistance. Kashkash said he was impressed with the UA’s security systems, but said they could do a better job of marketing and simplifying their information. Bogart said the Information Security Office tries to raise awareness about security issues through events and services and is always evaluating their methods to see if they are successful. “We definitely want students to know we’re a resource for them,” Bogart said.
earthquake. ADTEK has sent structural engineers, some working through 1 a.m., to nearly 100 schools in the Washington metro area. Where they’ve found damage, most of it has been fairly easy to repair, Kuruvilla said. By midday Thursday, Washingtonbased KCE Engineers had inspected 74 buildings since the earthquake, said Allyn Kilsheimer, the firm’s president and chief executive officer. About half a dozen had seen problems with large masonry, he said, while 20 to 30 had small cracks. “There are lots of cracks, but nothing of major consequence,” he said. Even at the Washington Monument, which the National Park Service has closed indefinitely, the cracks are at the top of the 555-foot obelisk, Washington’s highest structure , not near the bottom, which would put it at greater structural risk. Second, Irene will slam buildings with different forces than Tuesday’s temblor. An earthquake shakes the foundations of buildings, jolting them from underneath, explained Om Sharma, a structural engineer and owner of 3D Structural Engineers in Bethesda, Md.

patient traffic comes an increased opportunity for recent medical school graduates to gain experience in a professional setting. University Physicians Hospital is looking to increase its annual intake of medical residents from six to eight over the next two years and eventually plans to get to 10. Graduates looking to enter the medical field have to complete a residency period of varying length depending on their chosen specialty. In addition to new residencies, the center plans to create about 150 other new positions. Dov Brandis is a second-year medical student at the UA College of Medicine and said he is not interested in pursuing his residency at the University Physicians Hospital upon graduating because he wants to practice in a larger metropolitan area, though he can understand why other students would want to. “Hospitals affiliated with the
buildings laterally and from above. Sherma said he doesn’t expect the hurricane to exacerbate earthquake damage on a wide scale. Still, engineers warn that even in buildings with sound foundations, people can be injured by falling objects or flying glass. They say residents should bring all outdoor furniture inside, as well as anything else that could be blown away by the wind. If that’s impossible, tying objects down goes a long way, Kuruvilla said. Kilsheimer suggested boarding up windows with plywood. He also urged residents to check their chimneys for broken or dislodged bricks and look for other damage in homes where high winds could cause trouble. For people concerned about the integrity of a particular wall, he suggests a simple at-home test: Tap near the middle of a window on that wall, and you should hear a dull sound, he said. Tap near the edge of the window and you should hear either a similar dull sound or a higher pitched sound. But if a tap in the middle of the pane makes a high-pitched sound, that could suggest stress within a wall.
UA generally have great academic standing in the medical community, a great staff and a good mix of patients,” he said. The new facilities also provide additional services and shorter wait times that allow University Physicians Hospital to apply for a more prestigious status. The increased volume of patients and growth of services in fields like surgery can help medical residents explore potential specialty paths. “For example,” Shirazi said, “for a surgeon it takes five years of residency, and certain quotas for specific surgeries, like appendectomies.” Within the next three years, Shirazi said 100 more medical residents will graduate from the UA. Shirazi said the new residencies at the Behavioral Health Pavilion and Crisis Response Center will not only help Tucson and Southern Arizona in the short term, but in the long run as well. “Physicians tend to stay where they were in residency,” Shirazi said.

Let’s go local: Campus lacks food diversity By Joe Dusbabek
don’t have any direct benefit for students. Keeping the old Café Sonora and not completely remodeling the inside with a new name and face would have been fine, and the money needed for that operation could have been spent on, say, bringing in some local talent. Tucson’s array of quality restaurants is one of its most underrated aspects as a city, and it certainly wouldn’t hurt for the UA to take a hint or fifteen. I don’t want to know the cost of that scoreboard they’re putting up in the football stadium, but I’d feel comfortable wagering that a few small grants for extensions of popular Tucson restaurants to venture on campus would still cost less. Let’s be honest: Who wouldn’t love having a Lindy’s right on campus? The UA could cater to the healthy-dining crowd by adding a low-fat Greek or vegan food venue on campus. The options are essentially endless. It’s a well-known fact that Tucson’s street food scene is one of the better ones out there. Taco stands are regularly a huge surprise to my own taste buds, and I can’t imagine it’d be that big of a stretch to give an owner some cash to throw one up near the UA Mall on a weekly basis. Look, it’s not that we can’t be happy with Cactus Grill five days a week, but there’s something to be said for accommodating the tastes of an ever-growing student body with an equally large diversity of sophisticated dining preferences. It’s not like the UA doesn’t have the money; if they claim they’re going broke due to budget cuts, someone might want to tell them that renovating Coronado Residence Hall won’t exactly help. In the meantime, it’s not too much to ask that when we go searching for good food, we’re not forced to leave campus because of a lack of decent options.
exican, Chinese, Italian, French. If you’re making this list, you’re either in a Geography 101 course, you’re plotting a round-theworld vacation or you’re trying to think of different types of “ethnic” food we have here on campus. Not the largest list, is it? While the masses don’t seem to be starving, the fact remains that the pickings out there are still pretty slim. So here’s a question: When you want to eat healthy on campus, where do you go? Let me guess: Core. And therein lies the problem. Core is immediately everyone’s first and only thought. And the trouble doesn’t stop there. If you want to get authentically Asian food without consuming the sodium-filled excesses of Panda Express, you’re forced to take your business off campus. The Student Union Memorial Center features a menagerie of chain restaurants: Papa John’s, Burger King and Chick-fil-A come to mind. Talk about a parent’s nightmare when it comes to trying to keep their kids from gaining a quick 15 pounds at the start of every year. Or, for that matter, a nightmare for anyone who wants a change of pace from your typical fast-food experience. College Prowler, which rates the UA’s on-campus dining as a “B+,” clearly isn’t that concerned with the lack of variety. Some of us, however, beg to differ. Our “original” restaurants don’t fare much better than the chains. I recently returned from a year of study abroad and was surprised to find Café Sonora had disappeared … only to be immediately replaced by another Mexican-themed restaurant, “Sabor.” Not to mention the Indian restaurant that came and went during my time away as well. While there’s nothing wrong with more Mexican food, it just seemed like a waste of time and money to replace an existing restaurant with one of the same type. — Joe Dusbabek is a senior studying Tuition continues to go up every year, French and linguistics.

Drinking games and all their names Jason Krell DAILY WILDCAT
oredom is the bane of every college student. Full-fledged adults say we’re here to learn, and we are, but who haven’t planned their Friday night party during their Wednesday morning class? Especially since a semester full of boring nights, alone or with friends, is almost as horrible as getting a “D” in a class — well, maybe a “C.” You know the feeling: sitting in your room, staring blankly ahead while everyone keeps asking “what should we do?” No one has an answer, but it’s all anyone can say — truly a tragedy. Good news then, Wildcats. I’m here to help with that.
From now on, every Friday, I’ll be here to talk games with you. That doesn’t just mean video games either — I’m broadening my scope to bring you columns about card games, age-appropriate board games, dice games, tabletop games, drinking games and, not to worry, video games will also make an appearance. Try the games I talk about, even if you’re unsure about them. The suggestions are new avenues of entertainment to fill those boring nights, so that you have an answer when people start asking the dreaded question, “What should we do?” Now, I figure that since we’ve made
it back to the UA for another year and some are just arriving for their first, celebrations are in order. Good games to start with might be one of college students’ favorite kinds: drinking games. Of course, the Daily Wildcat would never condone underage drinking, and, of course, not everyone drinks. But for those who can partake, I’ll be here to give the people what they want. In the West, throw around names like Beer Pong and King’s Cup, and the masses know what’s up. Everyone might have a different rule for what to do if someone draws a Jack or the rules for death cup, but most of the designations are the same.
Some places on the East Coast insist that Beer Pong should be called Beirut, because pong implies the use of paddles. Don’t let those East Coast bros fool you though. Use
the West Coast name when you are past the Mississippi. While holding onto the wrong name won’t lead to much more than confusion, it might make you look like a bit of an outsider since most everyone else won’t know what you’re talking about. Support your school and call it what it is.
By a similar token, King’s Cup’s other alias isn’t pinned down to any specific location, but some people refer to it as Waterfall. Either way, names are based off events within the game — the Ace is usually waterfall and the King is king’s cup — so it’s not as big a deal. Still, for simplicity’s sake, just stick to King’s Cup. It’s more well-known and, well, since that’s what Wikipedia calls it, it’s pretty official.
Asshole is a less popular game, which makes it all the more confusing when not everyone calls it the same thing. Some refer to the card game as President, since the winner of the round is called the president. Before it was Americanized, the game’s name was Dai Hin Min, but since we live in ‘Merica, let’s stick to the name we gave it. There are likely other games similar to these, but they’re either too obscure or the other name isn’t that common. Now that everyone is on the same page though, you can all focus on the important part of the game: playing them — and by extension … well, you know what I’m getting at. — Jason Krell is a junior studying creative writing and Italian.

A new breed of foreign languages Joshua Segall Daily Wildcat
oreign languages are often one of the most dreaded subjects in school. Every undergraduate student is required to take a minimum of two semesters, while some have to take four and six semesters in order to graduate. Many students take the common foreign language courses: French, German, Italian and Spanish. Other students elect to take foreign languages with their own alphabets, such as Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew or Russian. While many options are available, computer programming languages such as Java, C+, PHP, SQL, and HTML are not considered foreign languages. Foreign languages are usually indigenous to a specific country or region, but who says they can’t be indigenous to a specific application or program? We use an array of computer programming languages in our everyday lives to surf the web, check emails and purchase things online. We use them when searching for a library book and we use them when registering for classes. Computer programming languages are just like any other foreign or second language. They are usually taught in addition to a person’s primary language and the student is mostly unfamiliar with the language at the start. While they might not be spoken languages, they are languages of communication used in everyday interaction. And hey, sign language and Braille aren’t spoken either, but they’re still forms of communication. These languages are just as important as any other foreign language taught today. Any university that expands the realm of foreign languages to include these computer programming languages will not only increase the class offerings, but will produce more technologically savvy students that can go out and apply these language skills to almost any workplace. As we move forward into a digital age, it is time we incorporate as many aspects of the digital world into our educational curriculums. — Joshua Segall is a management information systems senior.

Bachmann has not only been certain to take careful consideration of her physical appearance but also to repair her image as a blundering presidential candidate. Bachmann has already made herself look like a goof. For those of you keeping score, she recently wished Elvis Presley a happy birthday on the anniversary of his death. Since she can’t take her words back, she now has someone who can limit just who asks her questions and how long they get to probe her for information. According to The New York Times, Bachmann’s Press Secretary Alice Stewart compiles a list of reporters who may ask Bachmann questions. The list is designed to avoid “Obama trackers” who are out to get Bachmann to slip up. That’s what I look for in a presidential candidate.

Forecast: Downpours of Disgruntlement
Independent women: The power of femininity
MAILBAG In response to “Big celebrity weddings: Carats on a stick that distract” You truly expressed in your article what weddings should be about. My husband and I have been married for 42 years and looking forward to many more. The length that marriages last today it is ridiculous to have costly weddings. Our marriage was simple not costly. Three hundred and fifty in attendance, all my friends helped set up and clean up, our pastor married us and blessed us with a prayer. The cost for the entire wedding plus my dress, which I rented from a bridal shop ($50), was around $500 to $600. We served cake, punch and coffee. The reception was in the same building. No fancy honeymoon, just a cabin by a river a relative gave us. How many years have we been married? Forty-two years. Oh yes, almost forgot, my ring was a .25 carat and I am still wearing it today. Thank you for writing such a meaningful article. Keep up the great work! You have a bright future! — Rowena Blumenschein

nuclear disagreement, the rest of the book is reportedly nothing but Cheney writing a love letter to himself, his thoughts and Bush. In all reality, this is nothing new, and nothing more than Cheney being himself. What is most unclear is what exactly motivated Cheney to write this memoir. Does he really think he’s revealing a side of himself the general public didn’t already know? You mean to tell me Cheney is a vindictive, egotistical, deceptive man blind to all the facts? No way, how would anyone ever have concluded this without a memoir by him? Perhaps Cheney thought he had fans out there who idolized him so much that they just had to know all of his thoughts and views. I’m sorry, but I don’t want those nightmares, thank you. I would rather not know what horrible beliefs, schemes and goals of Cheney’s never escaped the mind that I would dub “the terror-dome.” Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, let’s just try to pretend that this book didn’t happen. I feel that we all wish the presidency itself didn’t happen, we don’t need a book rehashing that. If you find yourself reading, don’t be surprised if you feel downpours of disgruntlement overcome you.

Dear “Miss Independent,” You are educated, driven, a little stubborn and kind of masculine. In the search for equality among men in our society, you lost the sense of femininity that makes you a woman. Throughout the decades, our roles as women have changed dramatically, from the way we are portrayed in the media to what is expected of us. In the 1950s you wore dresses, had a freshly manicured lawn and set out gourmet meals on the table for when your husband arrived home from a long day of work. Remember those days? Let’s fast-forward six decades and now you are wearing an unflattering pantsuit that makes you look like the men in your office. But you don’t need to out-man your coworkers to prove you’re qualified for your position. Even though we live in a maledominated world, it doesn’t mean you have to look or act like one. The women before us should be proud, but think about how much of ourselves we
lost in the process. For years, we tapped at the glass ceiling and had to cross great distances to get to where we are today. Yes, women have become very successful but it is simply because men have conditioned women in the workforce to have masculine qualities. Have we lost part of our identity in order to be successful in today’s society? Regardless, we are not the women we once were; we are strong, independent and outspoken. It still begs the question: At what cost? As women become actively involved in our world, it is more and more difficult to differentiate whether they are female or male. It’s as if we have created a whole new gender since their characteristics do not match that of a woman or a man. The independent woman has become a hybrid of a female body with a male’s perspective and beliefs. This clash and conflict has certainly shaped who you are today. After all the years of repression and being underappreciated, you, the independent woman,
have learned the masculine quality of aggression. This anger has been the driving force in your success. The constant battle has definitely made you one tough cookie and now society sees you as an equal team member. But it is okay to be a woman and to embrace who and what you are. There is no need to be embarrassed by women who wear makeup and actually care about their outer appearance. Like primates to the modern day human, you too have evolved and can continue to do so. You can pay your own bills, get a higher education, and have the choice not to get married and bear children. With newfound responsibilities as independent women, men have become intimidated by female success. Women nowadays do not know how to be feminine and self-sufficient. Feminine power is greater than you think and women actually have more power than men but do not know how to use it. You do not have to be a man, dress like a man or act like a man to be powerful. Embrace your femininity and brains to succeed. Women can be smart and sexy too. Feminine Power. Sincerely, Proud Female — Jacquelyn Abad is a sophomore studying journalism and Spanish.

POLICE BEAT By Rebecca Rillos DAILY WILDCAT
Blame it on the alcohol
A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrived at Villa del Puente Residence Hall around midnight on Tuesday in response to a report of an intoxicated resident. When the officer arrived, paramedics from Tucson Fire Department were already attending to the woman, who was sitting on her bed and vomiting into a trashcan. The womanâ€™s speech was slurred and incoherent and the officer could smell alcohol on her breath. She could not balance on her own. After paramedics evaluated her, the woman was taken to University Medical Center via ambulance for extreme intoxication. The officer was unable to interview the woman due to her state. The womanâ€™s parents were notified and she was referred to the Dean of Students Office.
One girl, four cups
A UAPD officer responded to a call around 2 a.m. on Tuesday about an intoxicated woman throwing up at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. Paramedics from the Tucson Fire Department treated the woman at the scene. The officer read the woman her rights and she agreed to answer questions. He asked if she had been drinking and the woman said yes. She said she drank about four cups of hard liquor mixed with something clear. The woman said she drank off-campus but didnâ€™t know where she had been or who gave her the alcohol. She admitted to breaking the law and she was cited for minor in possession.

A police aide noticed a man peering into cars on the fifth level of the Sixth Street Parking Garage at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. When the aide approached him, the man said he had just parked his car and was about to go down the stairs. He left quickly. The aide later noticed the same man wandering inside a parking lot near Sixth Street and Santa Rita Avenue. The aide spoke to the man again who changed his previous answer and said a friend had dropped him off in the garage. He then admitted to lying to the aide. A UAPD officer was called to assist with the situation. The man admitted again to lying and said he knew it was wrong. He said he was walking through the garage to enjoy the view from up there. He denied looking into cars. The man identified himself as a student and was given a code of conduct violation for lying to police personnel.

Grandon gets his shot at nickelback By Alex Williams DAILY WILDCAT
When Jourdon Grandon suffered a broken foot during his senior year of high school, he didn’t know how to react. It was the first major injury of his life. But instead of sulking or taking a “why me?” attitude through missing almost his entire senior year of high school and then playing on only the scout team in practice last year at Arizona, he’s parlayed it into a role as the Wildcats’ starting nickelback in his second year on campus. Grandon, who head coach Mike Stoops said will start “if things continue the way they are,” has transformed into a key contributor in the Arizona secondary, which may be one of the strongest units in the Pac-12. But Grandon, now a redshirt freshman, doesn’t credit one thing for elevating his game. Instead, he said he’s completely reworked himself as a player in nearly two years of watching games from the sidelines. “I had to improve on everything
— agility, speed, strength, all that,” Grandon said. “It was just a matter of getting comfortable, really.” The biggest transformation of Grandon may have been mentally. Instead of having everything thrown at him as a true freshman, he was able to study the playbook during his redshirt season while digesting tips from the experienced members of Arizona’s secondary. “It was great because I was able to learn from the past nickel, which was (Joe Perkins),” Grandon said. “I was just able to watch. And being in film and understanding what they were doing — it just gave me a real grasp of how to play the nickel position.” Perkins has since graduated, but Arizona’s secondary still has two players — Trevin Wade and Rob Golden — who can act as extra coaches on the field because of their extensive knowledge of the Wildcats’ defense. Having those two as a security blanket has allowed Grandon to be more aggressive since getting his first shot as a starter during spring practice.
“If I need help or if I have a question, I can go talk to Rob or I can go talk to T-Wade,” Grandon said. “They know the defense in and out. It makes my job a lot easier, because they both know everything. I ask one question and boom, they’ve got it for me.” Grandon’s mental evolution isn’t something that’s flown under the radar. Senior quarterback Nick Foles has seen huge growth in Grandon’s maturity over the past 12 months. “Last year, he was young, a freshman, inexperienced,” Foles said. “Now he’s being more aggressive … he’s come a long ways.” That growth may have not been possible if Grandon’s foot injury hadn’t forced him to take a step back and take a more cognitive approach to the game. But even though that injury cost him nearly all of his senior season in high school, Grandon said that things have worked out for the best. “It was a blessing in disguise,” Grandon said. “You can be as athletic as you want, but without knowing what to do, it’s not gonna help you.”

Soccer attempts Men’s tennis untested to clean things up SEASON PREVIEW
By Kyle Johnson DAILY WILDCAT
By Kevin Nadakal DAILY WILDCAT
The Arizona women’s soccer team (0-2) will look to get its first win of the season as it faces off against South Carolina (1-1). The Wildcats will try to find a remedy at their first home game of the season tonight at 7 at Mulcahy Stadium. Arizona will also look to score its first goal of the season, as its only score came on a penalty kick. The Gamecocks, who were ranked in the top 25 until a loss to Duke last weekend, will not make things easy for head coach Lisa Oyen’s team. Oyen commended the team’s performance last weekend, but said it was disappointing to go home with losses to San Diego State and Pepperdine. “I was really impressed with how we were able to adapt to how they played,” Oyen said. “We were able to play well at their game.” The Wildcats will have to adapt their game again against
the physical South Carolina squad. In the Gamecocks’ game against Duke, the teams combined for 23 fouls. Oyen is looking for some improvements from both the front and backline after what she saw last weekend. “Our backline needs to be more organized and our front line needs to be more efficient in the box, we need to take better shots,” Oyen said. The defense is led by senior goalkeeper Ashley Jett, whose 104 saves were the most in the Pacific 10 Conference last season. “She made the stops that she should have made,” Oyen said.

Last season was a frustrating one for the Arizona men’s tennis team. The Wildcats finished No. 54 in the final International Tennis Association rankings with a 9-14 overall record and was winless in the brutal Pacific 10 Conference. But while the team, as a whole, must wait until spring to recover from its past struggles, its individual members have the opportunity to regain some normalcy once the fall season opens up on Sept. 9 at the New Mexico State University Invitational. The fall season features individual competition, more in accord with the typical formats seen in professional tennis, so players have a chance to distinguish themselves before the true team competition begins in the spring. And while head coach Tad Berkowitz doesn’t feel like last season’s team lacked skill — he feels it just endured poor luck and injury — the 2011 roster has a completely revamped identity. “This year we have a young group of guys,” Berkowitz said. “I am really excited about the group of guys we have.”
Youth is a major theme for the Wildcats this season, as the team lost four seniors from last year and now must rely on its talented yet inexperienced core to compete against some of the best collegiate players in the country. One player who has an opportunity to make an impact this fall is sophomore Andre Vidaller. Vidaller left Santos, Brazil, in January 2011 to relocate to Tucson and join the Wildcats for their spring season. After finishing 11-10 in singles play during his first season in Arizona colors, Vidaller now has the chance to make a real impact. “Early on (Vidaller) … assumed a little bit of a leadership position for us,” Berkowitz said of the thenfreshman. “We expect great things from him.” In addition to natural maturation, the extra time adjusting to the collegiate game may prove just as beneficial for the fledgling Brazilian, especially in terms of the playing surface. “I’ve been playing (on clay courts) since I started playing tennis,” Vidaller said. “It’s tough — it’s a challenge for me.” College tennis is played on hard, concrete courts unlike the softer, clay surfaces Vidaller was exposed
to in Santos. The unique format of collegiate tennis in the fall provides an added benefit to the athletes as they get the experience of playing in competitive matches against elite competition. The goal of the fall season, Berkowitz said, is to “start developing these young guys and turn them into a team that competes and wins in the (Pac-12) and national level.” And since the Wildcat fall roster features no seniors, the young players have a chance to quickly develop and regain their status of the top-25 team Berkowitz expects them to be. Alongside Vidaller, Berkowitz looks for fellow sophomores Giacomo Miccini and Kieren Thompson to assume leadership roles and become the foundation of the team. The team is also adding three freshmen to the mix, so any form of competitive participation can go a long way. The youthful Wildcats may face intense competition in the Pac-12, including three-time defending national champion USC. After competing in Las Cruses, N.M., on Sept. 9-11, Arizona will compete in five more tournaments this fall season, concluding on Nov. 11 in Sarasota, Fla., with the Lakewood Ranch Collegiate Invitational.
Arizona volleyball debuts in Hawaii By Kelly Hultgren DAILY WILDCAT
GORDON BATES/ DAILY WILDCAT
Then-junior Cursty Jackson spikes a ball in Arizona volleyball’s Sept. 24, 2010, game against California in McKale Center. Jackson, now a senior, leads the Wildcats into their first tournament this weekend in Honolulu.
The Arizona volleyball team has its season opener today at the Chevron Rainbow Wahine Invitational in Honolulu, where it will compete in a total of three matches through Sunday. First, the Wildcats will take on the Wichita State Shockers, who went 21-8 last year, earning a spot in the NCAA Tournament. They return this season with four starters and nine letter winners. “Wichita … is most likely going to be a top-25 team,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “They’re returning almost every single starter, who were all very good.” On Saturday, Arizona will play the University of San Francisco Dons. Similar to the Shockers, the Dons have a solid returning group consisting of five starters and eight letter winners. USF may have fewer accolades overall, but the Dons don’t fall short in the height department with eight players
standing 6-foot or taller. And on the final day of competition, Arizona will take on the University of Hawaii Warriors, who Rubio says will be their toughest opponent. “Hawaii, I think, will be on paper the strongest competition we have,” Rubio said. “Hawaii will be a top-10, if not a top-five team this season.” The Warriors return five starters, including two who were American Volleyball Coaches Association AllAmericans last year. After sizing up the Wildcats’ competition this weekend, their own potential setbacks are their youth and smaller height average. Hawaii also has a shorter team, but they have more returning starters than Arizona’s three. “Being the opening matches of the year, there are so many unpredictable things, I’m not sure what to expect from the new players that are going to be out there,” Rubio said. “You have a brand new system, so it should be interesting to see how it unfolds.”

Del Toro is hopeful that young teen ticket buyers also will check out “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.” He pointed out that he saw the 1973 original when he was 9 or 10 years old. “It’s not at all bloody or gory,” Del Toro said. “It’s a new take on a very classic format. We designed it to be a movie that would be seen by a younger audience.” The ratings board at the Motion Picture Association of America didn’t quite see it the same way, giving the movie an R rating for “violence and terror.” Nixey had long been an admirer of Del Toro’s work. “He was my favorite working director,” Nixey, 39, said. “I thought his movies were incredible and really talked to me on a creative level, an emotional level. … To go from finishing the short and hoping to have him look at it, to him actually offering me the opportunity to direct ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ … my jaw dropped.”

games last season by way of special teams and spot duty at corner. â€œHis improvement from last year has been phenomenal,â€? Walters said. â€œAll through spring he was competitive every play, definitely paid attention to detail, was very disciplined and that carried over into fall camp. He was playing lights out. He was arguably one of our best players on defense.â€? Stoops said the true sophomore will use his redshirt year and return in the spring as a redshirt sophomore. While this is certainly a huge blow for the Wildcats and McKnight as a player, Walters, who dealt with knee injuries throughout his career at the University of Colorado, expects McKnight to remain positive and use the downtime to improve physically. â€œLook at the bright side, heâ€™s going to be a true sophomore so heâ€™s got a redshirt year, heâ€™s going to have a chance to get stronger and bigger and get that thing healthy going into next

year,â€? Walters said. â€œI expect him to be better coming back. Heâ€™ll appreciate the game that much more and Iâ€™m expecting nothing but big things from him in his career.â€? Richardson will become Arizonaâ€™s starting corner next to Wade, and the UA staff doesnâ€™t expect a big drop-off without one of their top corners. â€œThese guys are very qualified players, theyâ€™ve proven that over all of last year and also Trevinâ€™s played great football for us in the past,â€? Stoops said. Despite an underwhelming 2010 season, Wade has proven his worth in the past, and looked like his old self at the Meet the Team scrimmage, intercepting quarterback Nick Foles twice. When Wade was struggling last season, it was Richardson who stepped into the limelight. In his first career start, Richardson earned Pacific 10 Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors as he picked off two balls, broke up three passes and collected seven tackles against Washington State. â€œWe wonâ€™t see a huge drop off with Trevin and Shaquille playing corner,

Sophomore Jonathan McKnight is out for the season with a torn ACL. He is the fifth Wildcat to suffer the injury.
theyâ€™re both capable of being All-Pac-12 caliber players,â€? Walters said. â€œShaqâ€™s definitely got to step up. Heâ€™s capable of doing so. Heâ€™s a tremendous talent, a smart player. Heâ€™s just got to focus on the details and be competitive every play.â€? Before the injury, Richardson was
While McKnight begins a long road to recovery, defensive cogs Jake Fischer and Adam Hall are working toward returning to the field. Both Fischer and Hall are doing individual drills and Stoops said, best-case scenario, the starters are about five weeks out and aiming for an October return. If Hall and Fischer take longer than expected, Stoops anticipates them to be back for the last six games of the season. â€œThe last month is getting your explosive power back and feeling comfortable with what youâ€™re doing in an environment that takes so much to play,â€? Stoops said. â€œWeâ€™re certainly not going to rush either player back.â€?
likely to play nickelback as Wade and McKnight manned the cornerback spots. But now with Richardson starting at corner, Jourdon Grandon will start at nickelback and freshman Cortez heâ€™s very football savvy and he wants Johnson will assume a bigger role. â€œHeâ€™s riding two deep now,â€? Walters to be a great player and that goes a said. â€œHeâ€™s as athletic as all get out and long way.â€?
