OCCUPY BURQUE Activists who identify as “the 99 percent” protest myriad injustices by Felipe Medina-Marquez news@dailylobo.com

Hundreds of protesters marched along Central Avenue holding placards and chanting slogans on Saturday in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Occupy Wall Street is a peaceful demonstration occurring in New York City to oppose corporate influence over politics and the government, protesters said. Volcano Vista High School teacher Barbara Endicott said she came out to protest because she feels corporations get an unfair amount of special treatment while the majority of Americans are neglected. “I feel like the banks got bailed out, and they’re leaving us in the lurch,” she said. “And the government is being corrupted by the corporations. The corporations have way too much power.” The protest drew a wide variety of people, from children with their parents to students and senior citizens, with a range of reasons for attending. Most of the protestors interviewed said they feared that the influence of the wealthiest 1 percent drown out the voices of the other 99 percent. Tanner Charles said he came to the protest to express his right to assemble and show his disapproval of the status quo. “We feel like we’ve pretty much got the shaft from corporations and the government and an older

generation,” he said. “Billions of our dollars go to subsidizing companies who make record profits every year.” Protesters gathered in front of the US Bank on Central, and as the number of protesters grew, the Albuquerque Police Department closed down parts of the street.

“I think that protests can achieve something, but on this scale it’s mostly symbolic” ~Paul Blackburn UNM student Throughout the protest, the group, who called themselves “the 99 percenters,” chanted “We got sold out,” “Human needs, not corporate greed,” “This is what democracy looks like” and “We are the 99 percent.” UNM Student John Flores said he wants to see the end of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. “I love this country so much, and I don’t want to see it crumble,” he said. “But being over there, in those countries, hurts us. We’re spreading imperialism, and that’s not what this country

was built on.” UNM Medical School student John Visante said he attended the protest to support health care equality and show solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. “The U.S. has come out in several occasions, in international treaties and documents, to say health care and health is a basic and fundamental human right,” he said. “So we’re asking our country to recognize that right here in the U.S. and to vindicate that right to a lot of people suffering.” Bruce Trigg, a retired public health physician, said he blamed corporate greed for the lack of health insurance for 50 million Americans. He said taking to the streets is the only way for Americans to get their voices heard. “We are voiceless in the Democratic and Republican parties because both of those parties are owned by corporations,” he said. “The only way we can have a voice now is in the streets of the United States. This is democracy in action.” UNM student Paul Blackburn said he doesn’t think the government will meet protesters’ demands. “I think that protests can achieve something, but on this scale it’s mostly symbolic,” he said. “People, I think, despite being mired in debt and having all these issues, are still well-fed and well-clothed and entertained.”

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo Sebastián País paints a sign for the Occupy Albuquerque protest. The group has camped on UNM campus for the past two days and intends to stay. They are part of a nationwide grassroots movement in support of the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City.

The UNM Foundation elected several new members to its Board of Trustees this month. The board’s new national vicechair, Stephanie Bennett-Smith, received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UNM and said being a Lobo runs in her family. “My mother was associate registrar, and I began working registration days when I was 13,” she said. “My brother worked at the SUB … (and) my uncle was a faculty member.” Bennett-Smith is one of six new officers appointed to the board. The board also appointed Gary Gordon to be chairman, Carl Alongi as vicechair/chair elect, Ray Ziler as assistant treasurer, and Peter Johnstone as secretary. Board President Henry Nemcik said he is looking forward to working with the board’s recently elected members. “We are so fortunate to work

with this group of trustees, and this new slate of officers,” he said. “Their expertise and experience is vital to positioning the foundation to do an excellent job of helping donors connect with meaningful opportunities to support learning, research, patient care and student success at UNM.” Newly appointed chairman Gordon said he is a fourthgeneration New Mexican who graduated from UNM summa cum laude with a business degree and studied at UNM’s law school. He said the foundation chooses board members with a wide variety of experiences. “The Board is carefully composed of trustees who love the University, but who also bring an incredible diversity of formal education, life experiences and talents,” he said. He said many board members have served for more than five years. Board officers are nominated and elected by the board.

Rail Runner runs up prices by Kayla Smith

kk_09_1@hotmail.com

The Rail Runner has modified its train schedules and may increase fare rates due to a state budget deficit of $1.2 million for fiscal year 2012. Before the Rail Runner’s Board of Directors takes official action on the fare proposal, the public will get a chance to complete a survey or attend public meetings on the issue. Steve Shaw, chairman of the Rio Metro Board, which operates rail and bus services in Belen, Los Lunas, Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and rural areas of Sandoval County, said the Rail Runner is expected to lose its deferral funding in 2013. The increase in fares would help offset the debt and the expected loss of federal funding. “This is a critical time for the New Mexico Rail Runner Express,” he said. “While an increase in fares may not make up for the complete shortfall, this is just one piece that will help offset the loss of these federal funds.” The survey asks riders if the fares proposed for their trips are reasonable, and if they would continue to ride after fares are

Foundation

implemented. Proposed fares for day trips are up to $2 higher than current fares, monthly passes up to $11 higher and yearly passes up to $110 higher. Specific rate raises depend on how many zones Rail Runner customers travel through. Student Savannah Martinez said the proposed fare raises could prevent her from riding the train. “The Rail Runner is an easy escape for the weekend, but with ticket prices escalating, it may be unaffordable,” she said. Augusta Meyers, Rail Runner spokeswoman, said she thinks the fare increases won’t discourage people from riding the Rail Runner. “Most people are capable of (affording) the changes we have made,” she said. The Rio Metro Board also created a fiscal sustainability task force that will work to provide other solutions to increase Rail Runner revenues. In August the Rail Runner implemented new weekday and weekend train schedules. During the week, a bus service replaced morning trains, mid-day trains were adjusted to accommodate lunch-time crowds traveling to

Santa Fe and two evening southbound trains were consolidated. Rail Runner officials contemplated nixing weekend trains, but instead changed the arrival and departure times. Dewey Cave, executive director of the Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG), said he thinks the new schedule is cost-effective while satisfying to customers. “This new Saturday and Sunday Rail Runner schedule represents a happy medium,” he said, “meeting both budget costs while still providing a variety of service with decent arrival and departure times for our riders.”

LAST WEEK’S POLL RESULTS: Head football coach Mike Locksley was relieved of his coaching duties on Sunday. How do you feel about his departure? Good. He didn’t win games and was hurting the Lobo’s reputations with his 90% off-field actions. Indifferent. I don’t follow the football 8% team or anyone involved with it. Bad. He isn’t to blame for the football team’s inability to win a game, and he 2% was never given a fair chance. Out of 210 responses

THIS WEEK’S POLL: Do you feel there are enough officers on campus? Yes. Any more and we’d be living with big brother. Yes. I feel safe and see officers on a regular basis. Sort of. I am fine during the day, but I wish there were more around at night. No. I have been the victim of a crime at night due to a lack of police officers. No, I have seen people committing crimes, and there were no cops around.

Schmidly: Lobo cartoon offensive and tasteless Editor, I am writing to express my offense at the cartoon that appeared in the Daily Lobo on Thursday. That it was tasteless is a given; that it was so mean-spirited toward one of your fellow UNM students is appalling. Sincerely, David J. Schmidly President

CAPS article ignores positive experiences Editor, I was profoundly disappointed to read Felipe Medina-Marquez’s article “Tutoring Service Gets Mixed Reviews” in the Sept. 29, 2011 edition of the Daily Lobo. With all the upheaval and cynicism at UNM, the anger that we see every day all around campus, I was dismayed to see Medina-Marquez pander to vitriolic attitudes. I was a former tutor and staff member at CAPS for years, as well as a patron of its services throughout my undergraduate career, and I recommend CAPS to all the students I encounter.

COLUMN

Fall allergies blow away in many ways by Dr. Peggy Spencer

Isn’t fall lovely? Warm days, cool nights, and all the lovely fall pollens wafting in the breeze — Achoo! If you’re having allergies, you’re not alone. Allergies are the body’s hypersensitivity to substances in the environment. Allergic reactions can range from mild itching and sneezing to severe hives, wheezing and shortness of breath. An extreme reaction can cause anaphylactic shock, in which the blood pressure drops and the airway swells shut. Most people, however, experience what has been commonly called “hay fever.” This term is a misnomer, because the usual season for it is spring, not summer when hay is harvested, and there is no fever present with allergies. The symptoms are itching, stuffy and runny nose and eyes, sneezing and coughing. Some scientists believe that allergies developed in our species millennia ago as a way for our bodies to rid themselves of parasites and worms. A special regiment, if you will, of the immune army, called IgE, was trained to fight parasites. Now that most of us don’t have to deal with parasites anymore, the IgE regiment, rather than laze around the barracks, has found something else to keep it occupied. Some people are more likely to get allergies than others. If it runs in your family, you’re at risk. If you tend to have sensitive skin or eczema, you’re at risk. Actually, if you just live in Albuquerque you’re at risk. Contrary to what our dry climate might lead you to believe, this is a very allergenic city. Every

spring, juniper bushes, mulberry, elm, cottonwood and ash trees spurt out their pollen. The wind kicks up to assist, and the result is a snootful of pollen particles. Summer allergies are often caused by grasses, while fall allergies are likely to be triggered by weeds such as ragweed, sagebrush and Russian thistle. Pollen counts vary from year to year, depending on the precipitation that year and the temperatures. Visit cabq.gov/cmaqpublic/ to get today’s pollen counts and to sign up for email notifications of daily pollen counts. You are not born with allergies. By definition, they require time to develop. Your immune system has to “see” the allergen (allergy-stimulating molecule) one year before it can make a memory of it and react the following year. Newcomers to town usually take about three years to develop allergies, but it can happen at any time. If you are allergic, avoid the allergen if possible. This is easier said than done when the allergen is in the very air you breathe, but you can do it to an extent. Avoid prolonged or vigorous outdoor activity when pollen counts are high. Keep windows shut, especially at night when trees drop their pollen. If you have an inside/outside pet, wash it frequently or at least rub it down with a wet towel to remove pollen. Wash or rinse your hair daily to clean off dust and pollen. After working in the yard, leave your shoes outside and remove and wash your clothes. Change your pillowcase frequently. If you suffer severely, you might want to replace carpet with hard floors and buy an air filter. Let’s say you’ve done all you can to minimize your exposure and you’re still sniffling and sneezing. The next step is over-the-counter treatments that reduce or counter the allergic response. Antihistamine eye drops, cromolyn nasal

spray, antihistamine pills and decongestant pills are all available in generic forms without a prescription. You can tailor your treatment to your symptoms. Ask the pharmacist for help if you’re not sure what to buy. Try a sinus rinse system, such as a neti pot. Some sufferers swear by this as a way to remove allergens from their sinuses and to loosen and discharge nasal drainage. Saline eye drops can help soothe and rinse red, itchy eyes as well. The Student Health Center Pharmacy carries all of the above. If you’re still suffering, the next level of treatment is prescription treatment by a health care practitioner. There are excellent medications available in eye drop, nasal spray and pill forms. If your allergy symptoms include any lung symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath, you should see a health practitioner. Many people with asthma have a hard time during allergy season, and asthma should never be taken lightly. Finally, there is immunotherapy, or allergy shots. This is a treatment reserved for those with severe and stubborn symptoms that don’t respond to anything else. It’s a very long and involved process, usually involving one to three shots every week for about three years. This is a last resort, but it can be very effective. If you need help please come to Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) or call us at 2773136 for an appointment.

CAPS is an organization focused on one thing above all else: serving the student population at UNM with sensitivity and with excellence. Despite challenges that most students never even know about (because the staff rightly takes care of them behind the scenes), CAPS proves that it is committed to consistency and stability for its students throughout each semester. How many other departments on campus can make those claims? Like every other student-support group at UNM, budget restraints and institutional regulations mean that CAPS cannot do everything. It does the very best it can with the limited resources available. The issues I gathered from the article’s two complaints were a solitary interaction with one

tutor and another’s concerns with the sheer volume of students. The former could have been easily remedied by speaking to a CAPS staff member (and not a Daily Lobo reporter). The latter is a testament to UNM students’ demands for academic assistance. CAPS offers different types of tutoring, extended hours, locations across campus and several online opportunities for help. Even with all of these options, it is not possible for tutors to spend as much time as they would want with every student. While there were some who defended CAPS, the negativity from the headline and the first half of the article overpowered the add-ons that MedinaMarquez was clearly not interested in pursuing. Yes, CAPS is often busy. CAPS tu-

tors are the best at what they do and CAPS serves thousands of students. Yes, students may have to plan ahead to make the most of their time with a tutor. That is a fact true for most real-world interactions. Yes, there may be ways CAPS can improve its services. Tell someone who works there. I’m not saying ‘let’s blindly rave about every campus service,’ but can we give credit where credit is due? If the Daily Lobo is truly the voice of UNM students, then please don’t get swept away by the loud and the few — the quiet and the many are likely too busy finishing their homework in the library.

Occupy Wall Street swells in third week by Verena Dobnick The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Protesters who have been camping out in Manhattan’s Financial District say their movement has grown and become more organized, and they have no intention of stopping as they move into their third week, following the second weekend in a row of mass arrests. The Occupy Wall Street demonstration started out small last month, with fewer than a dozen college students spending days and nights in Zuccotti Park, a private plaza off Broadway. It has grown sizably, however, both in New York City and elsewhere as people in other communities across the country display their solidarity in similar protests. The event has drawn protesters of diverse ages and occupations who are speaking out against corporate greed, social inequality, climate change policy and other concerns. Kira Moyer-Sims, 19, of Portland, Ore., said things have changed a lot since the protest began, with the group much more organized. “We have a protocol for most things,” she said, including what to do in terms of getting legal help when people are arrested. She said the protest will only continue. “They thought we were going to leave, and we haven’t left,” she said of city officials. “We’re going to stay as long as we can.” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said the department wouldn’t be changing its approach to handling the protest; that it would continue regular patrols and monitoring but not assign additional officers. Police officers have been a regular sight at the plaza. “As always, if it is a lawful demonstration we help facilitate, and if they break the law we arrest them,” Browne said. The fire department said it had gone to the site several times over the past week to check for any fire safety hazards arising from people living in the plaza, but there have been no major issues. On Sunday, a group of New York public school teachers sat in the plaza, including Denise Martinez. The 47-year-old Brooklyn resident works for a school at which most students are at poverty level. “The bottom line is the feeling that the financial industries here on Wall Street have caused the economic problems, and they’re not contributing their fair share to

solving them,” she said Sunday. She said funding for education has shrunk to the point where her classes have as many as 50 students. “These are America’s future workers, and what’s trickling down to them are the problems — the unemployment, the crime.” Another voice on Sunday belonged to Jackie Fellner, a 32year-old marketing manager from Westchester County. “We’re not here to take down Wall Street. It’s not poor against rich. It’s about big money dictating which politicians get elected and what programs get funded,” she said. Gatherings elsewhere included one in Providence, R.I. that attracted about 60 people to a public park. The participants called it a “planning meeting” and initially debated whether to allow reporters to cover it. In Boston, Mass., protesters set up an encampment across the street from the Federal Reserve Building. The New York City protesters have spent most of their time in the plaza, sleeping on air mattresses, holding assemblies at which they discuss their goals and listening to speakers including celebrity activist Michael Moore and Princeton University professor Cornel West. On the past two Saturdays, though, they marched to other parts of the city, which led to tense standoffs with police. On Sept. 24, about 100 people were arrested and the group put out video that showed a small, corralled group of women being sprayed with pepper spray by a police official unprovoked. On Oct. 1, more than 700 people were arrested as the group attempted to cross to the Brooklyn Bridge. Some of the protesters said they were lured onto the roadway by police, or they didn’t hear the calls from authorities to head to the pedestrian walkway. Police said no one was tricked into being arrested, and those in the back of the group who couldn’t hear were allowed to leave. The NYPD on Sunday released video footage to back up its stance. In one of the videos, an official uses a bullhorn to warn the crowd. Marchers can be heard chanting, “take the bridge.” Browne said that of the most recent arrests, the vast majority had been released. Eight people were held, three because of outstanding warrants and five others who refused to show any identification.

Slow start shapes late win by Thomas Romero-Salas tromeros@unm.edu

After being behind for nearly the entire game, UNM softball took control with three runs in the fifth inning to beat Eastern New Mexico University 4-2. In the last inning, errors and hits left the bases loaded with two outs for Eastern. Eastern’s Aurelia Sandoval singled to make it 4-2 UNM, but pitcher Kari Gutierrez held firm and got a ground out to end the game. Some coaches might have been nervous, but head coach Erica Beach said she thought her team would get out of its rut. “Honestly, my mind is telling me that we need to trust ourselves and just play,” she said. “We know how the girls panicked a little bit. We need to work on staying calm and not over-thinking anything.” Gutierrez said she fought

through some mind games to get the out. “At first I was thinking way too much, then I decided to stop thinking and just throw the pitch, and we ended up coming out on top,” Gutierrez said. Beach thought Eastern played tough, and she enjoyed the competition that it gave the Lobos. “Eastern New Mexico played a really hard game, so we really had to work at competing with them,” Beach said. Throughout the game, UNM failed to capitalize on runners on base, leaving eight stranded. The team also committed eight errors. Outfielder Jessica LujanDresslar said the team will be able to correct its mistakes in future practices and games. “We just need to get back on it … and work on it in practice,” she said. On Saturday, the Lobos played El Paso Community College,

beating them twice 21-0 and 20-0. Beach said the team did not come out as well on Sunday. “Today we were a little bit on our heels, so we didn’t have quite as much energy,” she said. “We had to work on some things to make sure we kept our intensity up.” Lujan-Dresslar she said she knew the team didn’t come out fast at first. “It was a pretty good game. We came out a little bit slow, but we got a win and that’s the most important part,” she said. Beach said she expects the team to work on some of the mistakes that happened against Eastern. “I think we played hard and we had the right mentality. We just needed to take care of little things on the field, because those things are what it’s going to take to beat some of the top Division I schools,” she said. “Overall, it was an average day.”

Michigan State on Saturday. Next up is a treacherous three-game stretch: at No. 14 Nebraska on Saturday, at No. 19 Illinois the week after and home for No. 4 Wisconsin after an off week. The Buckeyes haven’t missed the postseason since 1999, haven’t finished below .500 since 1988 when they went 4-6-1 in John Cooper’s first year as coach, and haven’t lost four straight games since 1943. To say those things won’t happen this season is to indulge in wishful thinking and hoping for the best. Ohio State ranks 108th in the nation in total offense and 110th in passing. Without Pryor, the Buckeyes

simply have nobody prepared to be a starting quarterback for a big-time team. No grand plan at Ohio State had senior quarterback Joe Bauserman starting this season. Braxton Miller was not supposed to be leading the team as a freshman. But that’s what coach Luke Fickell has been left with. Of course, the grand plan also never had Fickell running the team — at least not so soon. Fickell was handed this mess when Jim Tressel was ousted for covering up the violations that got

In a few weeks, it is likely that the only thing left to talk about concerning Ohio State is whether Urban Meyer will be the Buckeyes’ next coach.

The Buckeyes are 3-2 after an ugly 10-7 loss at home against

New Mexico Daily Lobo sports briefs

Cross-country makes top ten in invitational Friday 9/30 SOUTH BEND, Ind. The UNM men’s and women’s cross country teams both performed well at the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday. The No. 21 men’s team finished in eighth place, with senior Nicholas Kipruto placing seventh, and senior Ross Millington finishing ninth in the five-mile race. The No. 2 women’s team finished in third place, but only placed two runners in the top 20. Senior Ruth Senior finished in 11th place while senior Kirsty Milner finished in 20th in the three-mile race.

Volleyball nets first conference victory

sports Women’s soccer tied in SDSU MWC game SAN DIEGO, Calif. The UNM women’s soccer team started its MWC campaign with a scoreless tie against San Diego State University in double overtime. UNM outshot SDSU 11-9, but could only manage to get two shots on target. In the second overtime, the Lobos came to life when freshman Brianna Martinez missed a breakaway and senior Jennifer Williams missed her own chance to win the game moments later. With time winding down, junior Rachel Montoya shot over the bar and Williams shot straight at the goalie. The tie takes UNM to 6-4-3, and 0-0-1 in conference.

Golf earns second in Tucker tournament Saturday 10/1

USAF ACADEMY, Colo. UNM volleyball beat Air Force in straight sets, 25-20, 25-15, 25-23, for the Lobos’ first conference win of the season. The Lobos were pushed hard by the Falcons, but won all three close games down the stretch. Senior Ashley Rhoades led the game with 11 kills and senior Kelly Williamson and red-shirt freshman Chantale Riddle had seven each.

Men’s soccer continues winning streak LAS VEGAS. Nev. The No. 9 men’s soccer team scored two second-half goals to beat UNLV 2-1 in its Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Conference opener. In the past five games, the Lobos have scored all of their goals in the second half, and the match against UNLV was no exception. UNM went behind early to an 11th-minute goal from Rebel Salvador Bernal. In the 55th minute, defender Kyle Venter scored a header and UNM took the lead in the 58th minute off a shot from red-shirt freshman Carson Baldinger. The win takes UNM to 7-0-2, and 1-0-0 in conference play.

Conference win over Boise in sudden death Sunday 10/2

ALBUQUERQUE, NM. The No. 15 UNM men’s golf team placed second out of 16 teams at the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate tournament at UNM’s south course. The team finished four strokes behind No.11 UNLV. Red-shirt junior James Erkenbeck placed second in the individual score and finished four strokes behind Brigham Young University’s Zac Blair.

BOISE, Idaho. The UNM volleyball team beat Boise State 3-1: 30-28, 25-23, 23-25, 26-24. Senior Ashley Rhoades led UNM to the victory and set a career high in kills (31) and in points (36). The team recorded a season-high 15 blocks. All four games were close; the first and last games were decided in sudden death. The win takes UNM to 9-5, and 2-1 in conference.

With Fickell and the rest of the coaching staff not guaranteed a job beyond this season, do underclassmen tune out coaches they figure won’t be around next year? To say the Buckeyes seem to be on their way to getting what they deserve isn’t quite right. Surely there are players on that roster and coaches on that staff who deserve better than a five-win season. No doubt there are many who could be paying from crimes they did not commit while Pryor and Tressel collect NFL paychecks. And there just might be enough talent in Columbus to prevent the collapse that appears to be inevitable. “This team has some great

players; I know some of these guys are doing the best job they can to step up,” center Mike Brewster said. “I know Joe came in and did a good job at the end of the game, and I know Braxton’s doing the best he can. It was a hard day, but you’ve got to keep fighting.” Maybe Brewster, a senior, is one of those guys who deserves better. But for leaders such as Athletic Director Gene Smith and University President Gordon Gee, who allowed a star coach and star players to believe they could skirt the rules, and all those boosters, supporters and fans so blinded by loyalty that they actually believe the Buckeyes have been victimized, this season is exactly what they had coming.

Ohio from page 8 Pryor and company suspended. A small bit of good news for the Buckeyes comes this week when the other players who were suspended with Pryor become eligible to play in Lincoln. The additions of receiver DeVier Posey, running back Dan Herron and tackle Mike Adams should provide a boost, but it might already be too late. The mix in Columbus is volatile. Players normally accustomed to competing for Big Ten titles and BCS bids could quickly be relegated to vying for a trip to Detroit for the bowl season. Will talented seniors such as Posey and Adams already be thinking more about their draft stock than beating the Illini?

Make it work... Capricorn—The optimism that

drove you to finally confront a longstanding issue or project last week is diminishing. You are tired and discouraged. You can count on those closest to you to coddle and soothe you, which, although comforting, does not solve anything. A change in perspective is necessary and may result from unexpected experiences you allow yourself to explore. Aquarius—You are at a point where trivialities, petty concerns and other inanities one encounters in the circus of life have exceeded your tolerance capacity. You may feel as if you are watching a horror film and wondering what the point of it all is. At times like this, the only thing left is beauty, a subjective experience you can be absolutely sure of because it is you who identifies it. Let it inspire you to look past the game of trivial pursuit. Pisces— It is high time for a kind of catharsis in your life. You are unlikely to happen upon an event that has the kind of effect necessary at this time. A frenetic energy cycling through your mind, body and spirit is threatening to end you like a train overworked by a mad conductor. Emotional build-up is the likeliest culprit. More than simply relaxing, you will thoroughly exhaust yourself this week, and then have no other choice but to focus your attention on repairing yourself. Aries—A nagging boredom will tempt you to act more unpredictably than usual. The result could mean the near end of any endeavor you recently initiated. Any relatively new developments that directly involve you are in a delicate condition, putting your impulsive self in a precarious position. Don’t focus on how much longer this endeavor will take; this will only make you an impatient beholder who sees a weak, defective seedling. Envision your

ideal end result and chase it. Taurus—Undoubtedly, you have picked up on an emerging trend in your behavior. You have become insatiable, and your tendencies towards laziness and obsessive overindulgence are dominating your daily schedule. You’re aware of the negative consequences, and you even care, but something is stopping you from pulling yourself out of the muck. Identify situations you can be in to enforce your better intentions, like studying with your type-A friends. Gemini—While your thinking this past week was frenetic, even for you, the circumstances favored flexible thinking in many spheres of knowledge. What you have is a minor improvement in all areas of life. Because your progress is so diffuse, it is easy to see it as insignificant, leaving you resentful about the massive output. Rather than sulk, act on that urge to see big results. This time, even if you need a second opinion, make a decision about where you want to focus your energy. Cancer—After the long hike through the forest that has been the semester, you have now come upon an opening, a spread of wildflowers and tall grasses. Intoxicated, you dance merrily and skip through, losing a sense of time and place. If your circumstances allow, a stay here will take you far from your problems, and if you can settle in long enough whatever propelled you to begin the arduous journey will again be a source of strength rather than a burden. Leo—I can confidently say that this week, for anything that troubles minor or major you will find a solution in vigorous physical activity. There may be several instances in which your frustration mounts to obscure your better

judgment, potentially leading you astray from the values you hold dearest. Have yourself or a friend coax you out of these situations to do whatever you need to get that heat out of your system before you re-assess. Virgo—A recent shift in consciousness has rendered you melancholy and introspective. Like releasing a bird from a cage, there are some experiences that destruct mental boundaries, leaving us uncertain of how we feel about anything anymore. Your mind flies searching far and wide for pieces of a new puzzle, and it’s frustrating when the picture is not completed in a timely manner. Take pleasure in the process of re-discovery a reality that you can have a renewed sense of belief in, knowing you handpicked the parts for the certainties. Libra—Recently, you have probably experienced a growing disconnect between your mind and body. You live life socially, an intellectual endeavor that neglects physicality for the most part. Avoid neglecting your health, mental well being, and environment. To foster the healthy social life you crave, you need to be aware of how you interact with what’s around you. Scorpio—Your mind is struggling to reconcile the contrary desires of experience of the greatest intensity and establishing a balance in your life with which you can become familiar. You will be hard pressed to find a lifestyle that simultaneously accommodates both needs, though it is becoming necessary to do so. You may have better luck setting up something that divides your life somehow rather than attempting contradicting lifestyles. Sagittarius—You have sharp sense of purpose lately, and you won’t want to waste a moment dallying about mindlessly. You can cover a lot of ground, but it looks to be time-consuming at the least as you will spend a substantial amount of time encountering and dealing with roadblocks. Rather than lose your head, busy yourself with manual labor, leaving yourself free to happily daydream while progressing.

BRAIN INJURY STUDY to Start in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The University of New Mexico is participating in the ProTECT III trial – a National Institutes of Health sponsored research study that is testing if an intravenous infusion of progesterone can improve the outcome of someone who has suffered from a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI). “At present, we don’t have an effective drug treatment to protect the brain from damage caused by a TBI. There is evidence that progesterone might help,” said Howard Yonas, MD, chair for the Department of Neurosurgery at UNM. Because progesterone has been found to be most effective when given as soon as possible within four hours from the time of the traumatic brain injury, some patients may be enrolled in the study under special FDA rules known as “Exception from Informed Consent” (EFIC). These special rules allow research studies in certain emergency situations to be conducted without consent. EFIC can only be used when: • The person’s life is at risk, • Existing treatments don’t work, • The study might help the person, • It is not possible to get permission from the person because of his or her medical condition or from the person’s guardian because there is a very short amount of time required to treat the medical problem. While previous studies have shown giving progesterone as early as possible after a TBI may protect the brain from damage, researchers stress there is no guarantee of benefit. Possible side effects include redness or inflammation at the IV site; blood clots, some serious or even fatal, and reduced resistance to infection, while receiving the study drug infusion. Participants will be monitored for all side effects and treated as needed. Enrollment at UNMH is expected to start in late November and will continue until approximately December of 2014. Study participants will have suffered a serious brain injury, be at least 18 years of age, and meet eligibility criteria. Women who have a positive pregnancy test will not be enrolled in the trial. ProTECT participants will receive either a standard IV solution (placebo) or IV progesterone solution for up to 96 hours. Blood samples will also be taken to help predict how bad a patient’s head injury is and how well they will recover. Participants will receive all other standards of care for their injuries. The paramedics will notify the study staff of the patient’s injury and estimated arrival time and the study staff will meet the patient in the emergency department at UNM. If the patient is a candidate for ProTECT, attempts will be made to contact their legal guardian to obtain written consent. If after an hour of searching for a legal guardian, and one cannot be found the patient will be enrolled without consent. Once the legal guardian is located, they will be asked to give their permission for the patient to continue in the study. For more information about ProTECT, visit the local ProTECT website at: http://www.protect.aemrc.arizona. edu/ or the National website at www.protectiii.com Participants may withdraw from the study at any time with no disruption in care.

COLUMN

Locksley claims good reputation, shifts blame by Nathan Farmer

sports@dailylobo.com Last week, Locksley gave fans a delusional post-firing interview that yet again embarrassed everyone involved with the Lobos. The smug, no-emotion attitude that we have been graced with for the past three years was on display as he shared his thoughts on his tenure with KRQE sports director Van Tate. I firmly believe that a team’s success, or lack thereof, can always be attributed to its coaching.

“If only I could find a job that would pay me millions of dollars to do a mediocre job.” In the interview, Locksley said he could sleep at night knowing that the team — which won 2 games and lost 26 in the time he was the head coach — is now better than it was when he first took over. In the ’08 season, the team was 4-8. Last time I checked, four wins in one season is much better than two wins in a two-and-a-half year career. He said he came into the program with good standing, character and reputation, and that his reputation was the only thing tarnished after his firing. To say that he has good standing now is a lie. His first action as a head coach and role model was to have his secretary, Sylvia Lopez, sue him in May ‘09 because he allegedly said she was “too old,” and she felt this had caused her to be fired. A group of team members soon followed

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo UNM’s Lamaar Thomas tries to evade NMSU’s Ben Bradley on Saturday at University Stadium. The Lobos lost their fifth straight game of the season to the Aggies, 42-28, and now have lost to the Aggies for the past three years. Locksley’s superb moral standing by getting in a bar fight downtown the following month. The headlines kept rolling in. In September ’09, Locksley oneupped his players by allegedly choking and punching his wide receivers coach, J.B Gerald, during an altercation at a meeting. Locksley must have learned from his mistake after a “harsh” 10day suspension was handed down by Athletics director Paul Krebs. The team once again made headlines in August 2010 when a player robbed another player’s dorm room, and, you guessed it, got into another downtown bar fight. Amid the off-field distractions,

Mounting mistakes cause continued loss

the team went 1-11 two seasons in a row. Locksley said later in the interview that he was proud of the team that he put on the field, and thought that the fans and everyone involved should agree. That any fanbase would be proud watching its team lose nearly every game is comical. Locksley lost 12 of his 28 games by more than 33 points, including a 72-point loss to Oregon. Locksley embarrassed not only himself, but UNM, the fans and anyone involved in Lobo Athletics. The most logical thing he said was that he did the best he could with the team that was given to him.

Way to throw your team — the team who stuck by you during your terrible coaching — under the bus and take no responsibility for any of your losses. Locksley is walking away with a cool half-million dollars for all of the hard work he put in over the past two-and-a-half years. I guess winning two games is something to be proud of. From base pay and his buy-out clause, he walks away from UNM with at least $1.1 million dollars from his coaching career. That’s $550,000 dollars per win. UNM also had to pay $50,000 in fees for lawyers and settlement costs for the Lopez and Gerald disputes. Athletics lost an estimated

$800,000 in revenues from ticket sales this year. In total, UNM lost at least $2 million for hiring a coach who had never before been a head coach and whose claim to fame was being a good recruiter. All that the money bought for us was more embarrassments than any athletics program should ever have to deal with. If only I could find a job that would pay me millions of dollars to do a mediocre job. Former defensive coordinator George Barlow is now the interim head coach, and things don’t look much better. The team’s defense has been terrible, giving up over 42 points in all but one game this season.

New coach unable to lead Lobos to win over rival NMSU by Mundo Carrillo ecarr50@unm.edu

The Lobo football team losing streak hasn’t changed since the University fired head coach Mike Locksley. The Lobos lost to in-state rival New Mexico State 42-28, in front of more than 30,000 fans at University Stadium on Saturday. This is the fourth game of the season in which the Lobo defense allowed 42 points or more. They allowed 538 yards of total offense, 238 of which were rushing yards. The first four NMSU drives ended in touchdowns. NMSU quarterback Matt Christian seemed untouchable as he threw for 296 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for 101 yards and had a rushing touchdown of his own. Defensive lineman Joseph Harris said despite its recent levels of performance, the defense has the ability to shine. “When our opponents make plays, it’s usually because people aren’t doing what they’re supposed to do,” he said. “I feel that we can stop all of our opponents, but everyone has to play their position correctly on every play, not on some plays.” The losses are starting to take their toll on the morale of the team,

quarterback B.R. Holbrook said. “It’s definitely frustrating, no doubt about it,” he said. Interim head football coach George Barlow said he thought the team had a good week of practice and that it would translate into Saturday’s game. “We didn’t start like I thought we would start,” Barlow said. “I thought we had a great four days of practice. We were loose, we were energetic, we were focused, but it didn’t start like I wanted it to start.” The Lobos continued to make mistakes that cost them points throughout the game. NMSU’s Austin Franklin returned the opening kickoff 54 yards but got an extra 15 yards added to the end of the run, courtesy of Lobo player Devonta Tabannah’s personal foul penalty, which put the Aggies on the UNM 31yard-line. Two plays later, the Aggies were in the end zone for the first score of the game. The drive only took 44 seconds. NMSU would score two more unanswered touchdowns before the end of the first quarter, making the score 21-0 going into the second. The quick start from the Aggies took a lot of confidence out of the Lobos, Barlow said. “When you start that bad, it’s hard

Zach Gould / Daily Lobo UNM’s Dallas Bollema tackles NMSU quarterback Matt Christian during a game at University Stadium on Saturday. The Lobos, playing in their first game this season without Mike Locksley as head coach, fell to NMSU after giving up 28 points in the first half. to keep your confidence throughout the game,” he said. The first UNM score came with 8:17 left in the second quarter, on an eight-yard Crusoe Gongbay run. That run was the only UNM score of the first half. At halftime, the Aggies had a 28-7 lead. The first UNM score of the second

half didn’t come until 1:45 left in the third quarter, on a 9-yard run by running back Demarcus Rogers. That scoring play came immediately after a 43-yard completion from Holbrook to wide receiver Lamaar Thomas. UNM scored two more touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Holbrook threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to

Thomas with 39 seconds left in the game, to make the final score 42-28.
