Language center still seeks funds for renovations by Luke Holmen holmen@unm.edu

The Language Learning Center is unlikely to get the money it needs to renovate its 40-year-old facilities, at least not from the Student Fee Review Board. The LLC requested $196,817.50 in student fees, but it didn’t receive any funding. This was the first time the center requested money from student fees.

“...it’s pretty atrocious what they call the classrooms down here, and I think after 40 years they could spend a little money doing some basic renovations.” Pam Castaldi Language Learning Center director SFRB member and GPSA Chief of Staff Japji Hundal said the board decided not to fund the center because it only serves students enrolled in language courses. Hundal said the center should be funded by Instruction and General funding from the administration and the state because it is used primarily for educational purposes. “The lab is tied to coursework and to credit hours, and only students who are taking language courses can use it,” he said. “We felt there are other organizations that better serve the whole student population.” Pam Castaldi, director of the LLC, said outdated electrical equipment and poorly designed labs limit the ability of students to interact. The center has six computer

pods that teachers can rent out for classes and that students can use to do individual or small group work, but Castaldi said the center would like to create a central lounge area so students can practice languages outside of class. “You can take classes in languages, but that is not how you learn it,” she said. “You learn it by speaking it, and we offer tutors and films and conversation groups that allow students to really (immerse) themselves in the language. Language learning is so important. Most of the people living in Europe and in other places are bilingual and we need to have multilingual people so that we

don’t fall behind.” The LLC receives course fees from language classes. Castaldi said the $10 per student course fee funds much of the center’s operating budget, and while not every language course has the fee attached to it, all students in language classes use the center. I&G only funds the center’s administrative salaries, leaving no funds for updates, she said. Castaldi said this is the first time the center has requested student fees in the more than 40 years the center has existed. “In Ortega down here on the first floor, it’s pretty atrocious what they call the classrooms down

here, and I think after 40 years they could spend a little money doing some basic renovations.” Hundal said the SFRB will ask the administration for funding to support the center. “We are going to advocate on behalf of more dollars in I and G funding that can be renewed year to year,” he said. But Castaldi said she is unsure if the funding will come through. “Jaymie Roybal and Katie Richardson have committed on behalf of the SFRB to talk with me and the provost to talk about attaining some recurring funding through the College of Arts and Sciences, but I’m not sure what to expect.”

Without the funding, Castaldi said the lab won’t be able to serve students beyond their classroom needs. “We’re not going to be able to upgrade our labs,” she said. “It really hurts us because our goal is to become like a community center for language learners and without these upgrades, it makes that much harder.” But Castaldi said she hasn’t given up hope. Final student fee recommendations are due by March 1. The President’s Strategic Budget Leadership Team is currently reviewing the recommendations from the SFRB. “We will keep looking for funding, maybe not from SFRB,” she said.

MWC winning streak secures national ranking by Nathan Farmer

sports@dailylobo.com The men’s basketball team has cracked the national rankings for the first time this season. After coming off back-to-back wins over nationally ranked opponents, the Lobos are now ranked No. 18 in the Associated Press Poll. Head coach Steve Alford saidw the Lobos are worthy of the national ranking. “Our guys have done an awful lot of work to get to this point,” he said. “When I look around the country it’s hard for me to find 25 teams doing any more than what we are doing right now and that is a tribute to our players.” ESPN also picked the Lobos as the team

of the week. UNM is 22-4 and 8-2 in the MWC and is on a seven-game win streak in conference play. The Lobos won each one of those seven games by double digits. They beat thenranked No. 17 San Diego State by 10 points on Wednesday and No. 11 University of Nevada Las Vegas by 20 points on Saturday. With seconds remaining in the UNLV game, the student section began chanting “overrated,” referring to the team’s ranking, but Alford said UNLV deserved its high ranking. “I don’t think UNLV is overrated, I think we are underrated,” he said. “Maybe it will take games like this to get that kind of attention.” In this week’s polls, SDSU is ranked No. 24 and UNLV is No. 21.

With the 8-2 record in MWC, the Lobos sit two games ahead of both UNLV and SDSU who are 6-4 in conference. This is the first time since the 2009-10 season that the Lobos have entered the top 25. Senior forward Drew Gordon was also honored for his individual play this week being named the MWC player of the week and the national player of the week by ESPN. This is his third MWC player of the week for this season and the fifth in his Lobo career. Gordon is coming off a career game at UNM when he scored 27 points and had 20 rebounds in the win against UNLV last Saturday. Last Wednesday Gordon had 17 points and 17 rebounds against SDSU. Gordon said nothing will change now

that the team is ranked because the Lobos still have the goal of a MWC championship and an NCAA tournament appearance. “It won’t change our attitude, and we know how we are going to act,” Gordon said. “Our team is hungry, and we want a ring. We are striving to keep getting better.” Sophomore guard Tony Snell said the Lobos will continue their winning streak with their next game away to Colorado State and are good enough to take the MWC title. “To win a championship, I know that we are good enough to do it and talented enough as well,” Snell said. “We have to go in there and do the best we can for the rest of the season.”

news@dailylobo.com A memorial voicing opposition to the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling passed in the House during the 2012 New Mexico legislative session. New Mexico becomes the second state after Hawaii to pass legislation of this nature. Citizens United v. FEC is a 2010 Supreme Court ruling which held it unconstitutional to limit donations to political campaigns by corporations. The Daily Lobo talked with Rep. Mimi Stewart (D-Bernalillo) who sponsored the legislation, House Memorial 4. The legislation passed the Senate as Senate Memorial 3. Daily Lobo: What is the Citizens United v. FEC?

Mimi Stewart

DL: Why is this House Memorial 4 important?

Mimi Stewart: The Citizens United ruling from the Supreme Court is allowing our elections to be taken over by billionaires. Their (Supreme Court) ruling, which says that a corporation can spend just like an individual person, means we have unlimited, unregulated and undeclared campaign money put into the electoral process. DL: What is an example of this happening in politics today? MS: You only have to look at the Republican primary to see what is going on. You have a bidding war between billionaires of who can put the most money into these super PACs, which are independent expenditures which can raise and spend unlimited amount of money for candidates. DL: How is Citizens United v. FEC overturning past legislation? MS: People have always thought that there is too much money in politics and that we need to regulate money in politics. What the Citizens United ruling did, is all of that regulation and good campaign finance reform is out the window. Where is the money coming from, who is contributing, how much and under what purpose? It completely overturns the campaign laws we have put in place. Elections are going to become just how much money do you have and no regard to what your values are, what you stand for and what kind of regulation or policy you want to change or put forward?

MS: It’s important that every state starts badgering Congress to send us a constitutional amendment to overturn the law we have changed. Bad Supreme Court decisions have been changed seven times in the past 100 years, including letting women vote, letting black people vote and taking away poll tax on minority voters in the south. When the Supreme Court makes a bad decision this is a natural occurrence that the citizens rise up and try to overturn the ruling and put in place something that makes more sense. DL: What does your memorial exactly put in place? MS: My memorial in both the House and the Senate requests that we put the ability in the Constitution for the citizens through their elected officials to regulate campaign finance spending. DL: Why was New Mexico one of the first states to pass this and what is being done nationally? MS: These talks are happening all over the place. It’s been introduced in at least 25 states right now; New Mexico just has an extremely short legislative session so we were the first to pass it in the (continental) United States. We had to do it quick because our session is over. Most states don’t have this extremely abbreviated legislative session.

Space for exploration, not war profiteering Editor,

Every day there is much going on at UNM, some of which is worthy of public support, and some of which is questionable. On Feb. 10, I attended a presentation at the UNM Centennial Engineering Center Auditorium, during which Air Force officials presented Powerpoint presentations on their laser and beam weapons research. They came to ask UNM employees to help them create more killing machines for what is now called the “war fighter.” The military is offering lucrative contracts to university-based researchers for their help in arming the modern “war fighter,” some of which are remotely controlled drones that kill with amoral impunity around the planet. Their next Powerpoint talk is this Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. on space-war research needs. They want to grab the high grounds of space for war fighting around the globe, and they also want drones with laser weapons. Control of space is key for them, and that means war is coming soon to space. To me, the political message behind these talks sounded more like that of the people who built the V-2 when they were preparing for a thousand years of war and an empire from space with high-tech weapons.    These UNM-based presentations are given as if history has not been down this road before, and it is OK with the rest of the people of the world, which it is not. This raises a lot of serious questions for the academic and civil community. Do we really want to be part of this? One factor further factor to consider is that these kinds of tech solutions to social problems are driven by old-fashioned war profiteering and are a far cry from what higher education should be about.   This stands out in neon light these days when we have so many Earth-based, pressing social needs that need our money and brainpower. You might like to attend the next talk, see what you think and ask the regents why this is being allowed at UNM. Robert L. Anderson UNM alumnus and Vietnam veteran

Wise up and rise up against Groupwise

Editor,

Everybody knows just what leftist John Birchers you Daily Lobo rats are. You never report the real news. You never ask the good questions. You’re too afraid. For instance, how wise is Groupwise? A group of UNM scholars and scientists wants to know. The group’s recent 50-page report goes on and on about just how foolish Groupwise really is. “We found Groupwise deficient in four out of five user-compassion sensitivity examinations,” said a UNM psychologist who refused to be identified due to potential security clearance issues. “Basically, Groupwise is idiotic,” snarled computer science student Filip Negativ. “We gathered in groups to interact with Groupwise. We built signal fires at crucial intersections of the Northeast Heights. We tried every tool in our rather substantial bag, and Groupwise stubbornly remains to this day smug and indifferent. It has no idea how blind and ignorant, how determined, how graceless, how numb, how proud, how downright group-clueless Groupwise is.” James Burbank UNM faculty Editor’s Note: This letter is intended as satire.

Wooley’s Weekly Wisdom

If you have questions and need answers, please send an email to Wooleysweeklywisdom@gmail.com. He’ll be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Be sure to check out his Facebook page, ask-ryan-wooley.

Good men don’t rape or abuse their partners

If you can’t beat them, play a different game

Is relationship worth the hardship of trust issues?

Dear Wooley, My man is not good to me like he used to be. He doesn’t tell me he loves me like he used to, and there’s some other stuff, too. He hit me once, but that was a long time ago. I’ve tried talking to him about us and how he’s changed, but he just discounts it or changes the subject. There’s very little communication anymore, and I feel like all we do is have sex, even when I don’t want to. I feel objectified and numbed by it, and I miss what we used to be. I know he’s a good man, so I don’t want to end it with him, but I don’t know what to do other than try to talk to him in an effort to try to restore the relationship. Do you have any advice? -Longing for the old days

Dear Wooley, I’m a freshman and the little brother of a graduating senior. My older sister has always been the one to stand out in my family. In high school, she won all the basketball trophies, while I just played in games. She was part of the Albuquerque Youth Symphony Orchestra, while I just made All-State. Now that I’m in college, she’s graduating with a degree in business, and I’m taking my prerequisites to get into Anderson. I’m finding it hard — as I have all my life — to not be identified as her little brother by our friends. How do I finally be better than her at something? I want her and everyone else to see me for me. -Identity Crisis

Dear Wooley, Valentine’s Day backfired, big-time. I woke up early, cooked my girlfriend breakfast in bed and made her lunch before she left for work, so she could sleep in and enjoy the breakfast. While at work, I not only had flowers delivered, but a quartet of romantic singers surprised her with two songs and chocolates. Then I took her out for a romantic dinner, for which I’d made reservations a month ago. When we came home afterward, she walked into our apartment, which was cleaner than it’s ever been because I took the day off from work to make it really nice. She’s got a history of bad boyfriends. She hasn’t stopped accusing me of cheating this last week, all based on the fact that I did so much for her on Valentine’s Day. I’m not a cheater. I know she’s been cheated on in the past, but not by me. How do I get through to her? -Punished for trying to please

Dear Longing, Get out of that relationship. He’s not willing to communicate, and you are in a cyclical pattern that is unhealthy. Get out. It sounds like he’s both abusing and raping you. You don’t have to say “no” for an unwanted act to be counted as rape. It’s not okay and you should get help. The Women’s Resource Center and the Agora hotline are good places to start. Do not ignore this. As far as men are concerned, we are freer to be men when we don’t accept violent societal standards. It’s not diminishing masculinity, but embracing the fullness of manhood and the responsibilities that come with it. The ideology of devaluing women to empower men is wrong. When we all treat women with respect and adoration, we can begin to progress as a society. Do your part by affecting the sphere of influence in your life. Don’t accept “locker-room talk” if it is degrading, and reject media that promotes these negative ideas. Foster open dialogue with women. Fellas, this is a conscious, intentional effort to redefine society and masculine culture. Redefine manhood for the better. Tony Porter — director of A Call to Men, a men’s organization that works to end violence against women — said, “My liberation as a man is tied to your liberation as a woman.” End violence against women.

Dear Identity, Perhaps your goals of beating her and making a name for yourself are counterproductive. Your older sister has had more time to practice and experience various aspects of life than you up to this point, and with limited options in middle school and high school, it’s understandable that your interests were probably the same as hers. She’s your older sister, of course. That said, now that you’re in college, you have the opportunity to really break out from under her shadow, as it seems that’s what you want. Be true to yourself and pursue your own interests; try something new that neither you nor your older sister has ever tried. I’m not suggesting you change your major, unless you don’t see yourself going into business. Consider starting or joining a student group with similar interests to yours, make new friends and create experiences that are unique to you. You don’t have to compare yourself to your sister. As a freshman, you still have so much time to grow and become the person you want to be. By trying new things, you start paving your own path. The choices you make will become part of your own unique story. Remember, the pen is in your hands.

Dear Punished, There are some people who unfortunately won’t see past their worst relationships, even when they are with different people. Then there are some people who have a hard time accepting and receiving love from others. They don’t think they’re worth it or have had negative experiences. Regardless, in any relationship, we consciously choose to accept these people as they are and move forward. That’s what commitment is. I’d say assess the situation. Talk to her. You can’t change her, but you can be honest and defend yourself if you’re in the clear. If she still can’t believe that your adoration for her is genuine and not a cover-up, ask yourself if you’re willing to move forward in that relationship knowing that she has trust issues. That’s a decision only you can make.

theater review

Cast portrays fever for fame by Justino Brokaw jbrokaw@unm.edu

Productions of “The Cripple of Inishmaan� typically find humor in the story of a crippled orphan, but the Vortex production strikes a tough balance between comedy and tragedy. The play is rife with Irish wit and small-town humor but depicts human strife as well. “The Cripple of Inishmaan� chronicles a small 1930s Irish community on the island of Inishmaan. The community is abuzz when a Hollywood film crew arrives and starts making a movie nearby. No one is more interested than Billy Claven, a crippled orphan who sees this as a chance to escape the boredom of his life in Inishmaan. Billy is played by Micah McCoy. His character meets various people during the play’s first act, most of whom call him “Cripple Billy.� To the townspeople, it’s a simple fact more than a slight, but Billy feels the sting nonetheless. First the audience meets Billy’s two “pretend aunts,� who are sisters unrelated to Billy and have been raising him since his parents’ mysterious death at sea. Augusta Allen-Jones and Ninette S. Mordaunt are fantastic in these roles: they rattle off comical banter with ease and convey genuine feelings of love and affection for Billy. Bartley, a teen like Billy, has a feisty sister Helen, who is the object of Billy’s unspoken affection. The definite highlight, however, is Johnnypateenmike, a shameless town gossip who lives to share other people’s business. Ray Orley as Johnnypateenmike steals every scene, and when actress Jean Effron enters as his 90-year-old alcoholic mother, the laughs are riotous. Perhaps in an effort to recreate the rhythm of rural life, Martin

Courtesy Photo Abygail Merlino and Nathan Clifford as Helen and Bartley McCormick in “The Cripple of Inishmaan.â€? It plays at the Vortex Theatre through March 4. McDonagh’s play has a rather slow pace. The story insists on taking its time, and those telling it have to work with that constraint. Fortunately, one of the Vortex production’s chief virtues is that each character is so fully formed and entertaining that one never tires of watching them. Thanks to their dialect coach Alan Hudson, none of the actors seems at odds with the Irish accents or dialects. They succeed in transporting the audience to this time and place in history. McDonagh’s play gives life to a tight-knit Irish community, but he has many surprising reversals up his sleeve. McDonagh has particular fondness for the role of gossiping and storytelling in small towns. Much of the play revolves around stories the characters tell each other that are sometimes true and sometimes not. This keeps the audience guessing about plot elements, and the characters telling the stories are as important as the stories themselves. This is accentuated by Marty Epstein’s canny direction, which never gives away too much too soon.Â

McCoy, as the crippled Billy, gives a subtle performance that forms the heart of the piece. As he strives toward his first great opportunity in life and then deals with the consequences of his unexpected success, we can’t help but feel for him. It’s an excellent choice to begin Albuquerque’s Southwest Irish Theater Festival, making the wellacted production a tough two acts to follow.Â

New Mexico Daily Lobo

The Weekly Free

We may not have gotten the day off from school on Presidents’ Day, but the Daily Lobo wanted to take a moment and reflect on the central tenet on which this country was founded – freedom. We compiled a bunch of freebies from which you can choose freely. Freedom for everybody, no matter your political affiliation. George Washington would have been proud.

MARDI GRAS

stingrays, so prepare yourself. The training runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can call the BioPark at 505-848-7172 for more information.

We’re a couple hundred miles from New Orleans, but UNM still wants to get in on the party. Students can celebrate Mardi Gras in the SUB from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Root beer pong substitutes for alcohol, and I doubt there will be any boob flashing, but at least UNM is trying. You can even decorate your own mask and wear it for anonymity if you do decide to flash the crowd.

BATTLE OF THE BANDS

TODAY

THURSDAY

Watch UNM’s best student musicians duke it out for a spot at Fiestas 2012. Previous acts at Fiestas include Twista, the Shins and Girl Talk, so I’m sure all the bands are putting on their game faces. No matter who wins, it will be a night filled with quality local music from pop to metal – something for everyone. The show starts at 6 p.m. in the SUB Ballrooms.

PHOTOGRAPHY TALK TODAY

Danny Lyon is a photojournalist famous for completely immersing himself in his subjects. He became a member of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club so he could capture intimate moments with his camera. He also documented on film the lives of inmates on death row. He will sign his book after speaking at the UNM Art Museum at 5:30 p.m.

PIE

THROUGH FRIDAY, MARCH 9 Maybe you’re super talented, but I know I can’t bake a cherry pie. Anyone as inept in the kitchen as me is in luck. Waffle House is giving away free pie, so all you have to do is get yourself over to the nearest location which is at 2250 Yale Blvd. S.E. near the airport. You’ll need the coupon to redeem your slice; to find it head to wafflehouse.com or follow the QR code.

PEPPERCORN SHRIMP WEDNESDAY

Organizations across campus bribe students to come to meetings or events by advertising free food. But this week, you don’t have to sit through any boring talks to receive your free meal. Panda Express is offering free peppercorn shrimp with a coupon that can be found at PandaExpress. com or follow the QR code. This deal doesn’t seem fishy but ends when supplies run out, so get there as early as you can handle seafood. The nearest Panda Express is at 2820 Central Avenue S.E. next to RadioShack.

FISHING FAIR SATURDAY

This event is designed for little ones ages four through 12, perfect for students with young families. I didn’t know there were any natural fish in Albuquerque, but apparently they are alive and well at Tingley Beach. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the beach is at 1800 Tingley Drive S.W.
