APD increases security measures downtown by Svetlana Ozden and Luke Holmen news@dailylobo.com

On weekends, Albuquerque police have tripled presence downtown and now close more sections of the area to cars in an effort to increase safety. Last month, the Albuquerque Police Department began blocking the streets off to all cars other than taxis on Friday and Saturday nights at 10 p.m. APD Public Information Officer Tasia Martinez said the plan decreases the number of drivers and triples the number of police officers downtown on weekends and holidays. She said that in the past, three to four officers patrolled the downtown area, but the number has increased to 10 to 12 officers and includes additional officers from the Horse Mounted Unit and the Gang Division. “The number varies based on the night,” she said. “At any time we could also have K-9 units, undercover, all of that; and that adds to the number that could be there.” Martinez said APD will continue to close Central Avenue from Third Street to Fifth Street and Fourth Street from Gold Avenue to Central Avenue, including access from Fifth Street and Sixth Street. Martinez said the efforts are part of APD’s Downtown Initiative, implemented by Police Chief Ray Schultz in an effort to make downtown a safer area for bar-goers and visitors. “The whole point is to promote peacefulness downtown and keep crime out,” Martinez said. “The focus is in increasing the safety and maintaining a pleasant atmosphere in downtown as a whole.” Martinez said the plan calls for an increased police presence. “There will be an elevated observation post in order to keep a bird’s eye view of potential fights and other problems,” she said. “APD also included the Gang Division in the initiative to assist bar security in the identification of gang members.”

Adria Malcolm / Daily Lobo A taxi-only lane erected by Albuquerque police blocked off access to cars downtown last Friday. APD has tripled the presence of police officers in the downtown area and blocked vehicle access to increase safety. UNM student Kiera Hidalgo, who went downtown last weekend with friends, said the area feels safer. “You don’t have to worry about people driving around drunk and that is really nice,” she said. “The other thing is, there are more cops and it seems like they were better about breaking up fights and keeping scary people from doing anything they shouldn’t.”

But Albuquerque resident Roman Abdullah said the closure has increased the time it takes to get between bars. “Before you could have a friend roll in and just pick you and whoever you are with up and then take you to the next place, or you could go early and try to score a parking spot,” he said. “Parking has always been bad down there, but now that you can’t

park at all; it’s kind of annoying. I may start going to Nob Hill instead where you can get around better.” Martinez said APD set up a taxionly lane to transport bar-goers. “The taxi-only lane will allow visitors easier access to cabs but keep out all other traffic,” she said. She said bartenders and servers are also involved in the safety initiative.

“Bartenders are being asked to promote a safer environment as well,” she said. “They’ve been asked to monitor and not overserve their customers.” Despite the Daily Lobo’s multiple requests for comment from employees at Burt’s Tiki Lounge, the Launchpad, One Up!, Anodyne, Lotus, Blackbird Buvette and Maloney’s Tavern, no one would give comment on the downtown safety initiatives.

Alums create game, give some profits to fight cancer by Avicra Luckey

Two former UNM students created an app that has the ability to both entertain and save lives. Brother-sister duo Stephanie Balderrama and Robert Castillo, creators of “Adventures of Marvin and Mel: Word Rescue” are donating 15 percent of net proceeds earned from the game’s sale in the App Store to the American Cancer Society for the first year that it is on sale. In the game, players are either Marvin or Mel, two monkeys who reside in Paradise Zoo, who work to retrieve letters stolen by a thief from around the zoo’s grounds, Castillo said. “Your objective is to avoid the obstacles that are flying at you, while at the same time trying to catch bananas and mangoes,”

Balderrama said. “Your main objective is to catch the letters within a word given to you in each level.” The team is hoping to get feedback from UNM students today to help improve the game. Students who participate in the survey will be entered in a drawing for their time. The game is on sale in the App Store for 99 cents for an iPhone or iPod Touch, and 1.99 for an iPad. Both Castillo and Balderrama have experience volunteering at hospitals. Castillo, who graduated from UNM last year in December with a degree in chemical engineering, said he had opportunities to do research and volunteer with cancer charities during his time in school. Balderrama volunteered at hospitals driving patients to

appointments. Balderrama graduated from UNM with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. She said always wanted to be an animator at Disney, so she enjoyed having the opportunity to create the visuals in the game. “We thought that it was only fitting that the charity we donate to would be something that both she and I had volunteered for,” Castillo said. According to a press release, the game became available in the Apple App Store on March 16. It has been downloaded about 200 times, Castillo said. Balderrama said they began building the game last summer. Balderrama said the game is unique and addictive because of the point system it uses. “Your success within the level

Report: Alamogordo ax murderer arrested ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — Alamogordo police say a convicted ax murderer has been arrested after he allegedly violated an order of protection by knocking on the door of the family home Feb. 21 where the murders occurred in 1989. The Alamogordo Daily News reports Albert Lueras was booked into the Otero County Detention Center on fourth-degree felony aggravated stalking and a misdemeanor violation of a restraining order. He was arraigned Monday on both charges in 12th Judicial District Court.

It’s the third time he has been arrested for violating the protection order since being released from prison after serving 19 years for murdering his mother and 6-year-old nephew with an ax on April 17, 1989. 12th Judicial Chief Deputy District Attorney David Ceballes said there’s been a restraining order in place for several years against Lueras.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports that court record said 34-yearold Agapita Ramos beat her boyfriend so badly on March 23 that he had to have reconstructive surgery on his right arm. Magistrate Court records say that Ramos’ boyfriend got out of a truck that she was driving and grabbed his 18-pack of beer and a bottle of whiskey. Records show that Ramos then struck him with the truck and hit him with a baseball bat while his leg was pinned under. Ramos was booked last week at the Otero County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond.

said. Balderrama said she and Castillo wanted to create a game that everyone would be able to enjoy, and included elements that someone who doesn’t necessarily play video games might enjoy. “I was drawn to being able to dress the characters,” she said.

“So we added the ability to purchase clothing and put clothing on your monkeys. Oddly enough, there’s something about that. I’m not necessarily a competitive person, and so even with a small feature like that I find myself wanting to stop my level and go put clothes on my monkey. That’s fun.”

One of the center’s most active programs is its “Safe Zone” program. This program involves individuals from different departments trained to listen to students’ problems, if need be. Silva-Banuelos said the center recently received a grant for $100,000 per year for three years from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This grant will be used to expand the center’s “Safe Zone” program to include a suicide prevention plan and the program will be relabeled “Caring at every connection.” “We are trying to build a different culture here at UNM to where we really are caring for each other — regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, Silva-Banuelos said. “We want ‘Caring at every connection’ in every single department at UNM,”

Hundreds of faculty and staff are identifying as either an “ally” or “out” member of the LGBTQ community in an effort to create a safer and more welcoming environment on campus. The initiative began shortly after the UNM LGBTQ resource center was established in 2010, and has grown each year. Alma Rosa Silva-Banuelos, program coordinator of the LGBTQ resource center, said the idea spread through students, faculty and staff, and now more than 300 staff and faculty have signed the list. “We personally asked (people to pledge their support) and really it was word of mouth,” she said. “We had about 200 names on our first list (last year), and now we have grown to about 300.” Faculty member Kristopher Goodrich said pledging his support as an out member is important for the health of the University. “As a gay faculty member … I know of the importance of out, visible and supportive persons on campus,” he said. Summer Little, director of the Women’s Resource Center, said she pledged her support as an ally to promote acceptance on campus. Little said she believes it is important for the success and

safety of the campus that individuals who see and value people be easily accessible. “I wanted to be publicly and easily identified as a safe resource for the LGBTQ communities on campus,” she said. “The types of discrimination that these communities continue to struggle against are unconscionable: denial of civil rights, harassment, hatred and violence.” UNM student Campbell Scott, who identifies himself as gay, said the list makes LGBTQ students feel more comfortable. “Students can seek help from those on the list,” he said. “Especially when they are seeking help in a specific department of the University.” Silva-Banuelos said the list is an unusual way to show support within the community that other universities are taking interest in. “I have presented on this initiative nationally, and when they found out that we were doing it, they were incredibly excited and wanted to implement it in their own universities,” she said. “I would say the out and ally list is something that is pretty cutting edge.” The LGBTQ resource center provides many resources for the UNM community. The center offers one of the University’s gender-neutral restrooms, as well as free HIV testing once a month.

LETTER UNM offers access to independent study The following is a response to the letter “Independent study process lacks transparency, access,” by student Sarah Mowrey published in the Daily Lobo on March 23. Editor, Within UNM, there is an independent study through correspondence program that offers a set curriculum of catalog courses approved by academic units. These are usually high-demand courses and provide flexibility for students who are not able to take the course face-to-face. To find out more about these courses, go to correspondence.unm.edu. The UNM distance education program works with academic units to provide degree completion programs for students who are unable to attend face-to-face classes. Most of these programs are in high-demand areas such as business, education, the social sciences and health care. Students can combine online and correspondence courses, and if they live near a bachelor and graduate center they can also access interactive television classes to complete their degrees. Unfortunately, not every course offered face-to-face on main campus can be replicated in an alternative format. Academic units may work with students requesting a departmental independent study, which involves individualized study opportunities with a faculty member and are different in structure and time for completion from correspondence courses. However, just because a student wants a departmental independent study, for whatever reason, doesn’t mean that a faculty member or department can or should honor the request. Regardless, students wanting alternatives for earning a degree will need to be flexible within the options that are available, keeping in mind that, thanks to the availability of correspondence and online sections, there are more options now than ever before.

COLUMN

America addicted to materialism by Alexandra Swanberg Daily Lobo columnist

A man I work for was told he would die in a month if he didn’t find another doctor to refill his morphine pump. He told me about it, and even though this was not exactly a death sentence, he took it very seriously. “I was planning on getting a 3-D television, now all that’s on hold,” he said. Of course, he was concerned for his wife’s future, but this is what stuck with me. Remarks like this make me concerned for people who devote their lives to paper-chasing. So many people go to school to meet societal expectations but have little interest in the learning experience. They do this to get a job that will bring them the fortune they’ve dreamt of all their lives, meaning the freedom to blow their money as they wish. Looking skyward toward their ultimate goal, they think one day this will all pay off. Every dollar they get goes to pay for a home, car and lots of stuff to fill up those spaces. The wish list never ends. As soon as we get what we want, there is another void to fill. The man I referred to earlier has objects everywhere but the floor. I use a roll of paper towels in a single round of cleaning. Looking at everything he owns, he tells me he wants to get rid of it all and wishes he never accumulated so much in the first place. All these little purchases he added up throughout his lifetime mean nothing to him. I have the same impulse and it’s a difficult one to switch off. I spent an almost $4K inheritance in two months. I have nearly $2K in credit card debt and would probably have more if my credit limit were increased. In fact, the same week that the Occupy movement encouraged people to close their bank accounts, Wells Fargo gave me an extra $400 in credit. Incentive to stay with them, I supposed.

Even more pathetic is how empty I feel when I have no choice but to live within my means, cards maxed out, account in the negative. I’ve always been able to meet my basic needs, so why do I feel like a drug addict in detox when I’m forced not to spend money? I find myself wishing I had never been born into a capitalist society the way I wish I had never started smoking. It’s difficult to live life without these vices, not because they are necessary but because we are accustomed to them. They are hard habits to break, substance addictions.

As with any addiction, consumers are consumed by their perceived need to accumulate, and they sacrifice the most meaningful life experiences as a result. Like the ephemeral pleasure of smoking a cigarette, I get a great rush when I’ve bought something. I imagine its place in my life which is forever changed because of this object. A week passes and my life is indeed different, but only in that I have less money and another object taking up space in my life, requiring maintenance and begging me to give it attention. My phone calls to me every morning,

as does my laptop. We think we’ve entered a new way of life by buying these devices because there is so much you can do with them. So much time to waste, so much to be distracted by, so many ideas to explore on Wikipedia and StumbleUpon. Granted, these objects have some use, but like any addict we don’t know when to stop, how to unplug and engage with things of importance, like our family. Imagine two different people on their death bed. One succeeded in amassing wealth while spurning their loved ones to make more time for work. One made choices that fulfilled his basic needs without compromising his relationships. Who is happier? As with any addiction, consumers are consumed by their perceived need to accumulate, and they sacrifice the most meaningful life experiences as a result. To quote Tyler Durden, the “Fight Club” protagonist, “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war … our Great Depression is our lives.” I could not have put it better. I feel powerless to change the mentality of a society that is much too slow to acknowledge poisonous consumerism. They’re too blinded by The Dream, which, when brought into reality, has a dark side that isn’t apparent until it’s too late. If we keep spending money, we are further intoxicating businesses with the substance that drives them to abandon ethics and humanity to get more of it from us. The answer is to quit, which sounds hopeless but is more promising than living The Dream that will never come true.

More than 1,000 athletes expect to compete this weekend at the Don Kirby High School and Collegiate Invitational. With the indoor track season over, the events move outdoors as the UNM track and field team hosts the annual meet this Friday and Saturday. “It’s going to be a huge competition and there’s some great people (participating),” head coach Joe Franklin said. One of the great talents competing in the two-day meet is UNM junior long-jumper Kendall Spencer. Spencer was crowned national champion in the long jump at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Championships last month. He’ll be long jumping outdoors for the first time this season. Another nationally recognized Lobo, junior Richard York, will participate in five events — the discus throw, 400-meter dash, 100-meter hurdles, 4x400-meter relay and long jump. York, who specializes in the decathlon, said meets like the one this weekend are training him for the regional championships. “Most athletes are expecting to win their event,” York said. “I’m just mainly concentrating on how these meets apply to my multi (events).” In the 2011 outdoor season, York finished in 22nd place in the decathlon at the NCAA championships. He also swept the indoor and outdoor decathlon championships at the Mountain West Conference championships in 2011. York’s performance helped the Lobos finish runners-up to BYU on men’s side last May in the MWC outdoor championships. The women’s side also finished second to the Cougars. With BYU’s

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Junior sprinter Kendall Spencer competes in men’s 60-meter dash during the Don Kirby Elite Invitational Feb. 11 at the Albuquerque Convention Center. The Lobos are competing this weekend at the Don Kirby Outdoor Invitational. departure, the field has opened up a little more. “It’s a lot different of a competition,” Franklin said. “There’s four teams that can win it.” Franklin said Air Force is the early favorite, having swept the MWC indoor championships last month, but TCU, Boise State and UNM are all in contention. “I feel like we’re a lot stronger team than we were last year,” York said. “It’s going to be a challenge to beat Air Force this year.” Franklin said he hopes several of his runners can have breakthrough seasons to capture the conference title next month. He said Imogen Ainsworth, Shirley Pitts andMargo Tucker are all key players who can help the Lobos over the hump and capture a conference title on the women’s side. The men’s 4x100 relay team, including Beejay Lee, De’Vron Walker, Lamaar Thomas and

Spencer, is another group Franklin is keeping an eye on. “I think they can become a national level 4x100 relay (team).” Franklin said. Django Lovett and Logan Pflibsen will both miss the meet with injuries. Six Lobos will be competing at other meets this weekend. Sarah Waldron, Kirsty Milner, Lacey Oeding, Sean Stam and Janna Mitsos will travel to Palo Alto, Calif. and compete in the Stanford Invitational. Josephine Moultrie will take part in the Sun Angel Classic in Tempe, Ariz. The rest of the squad will stay in Albuquerque and try to clinch a spot in the championships. “It’s a good thing to be able to be in town this week and kind-of use this meet as a training meet, and hopefully put some marks down that could qualify us for regionals,” York said.
