UNM to upgrade degree audit program by Tricia Remark If you’ve ever been frustrated trying to understand your degree audit online, help is on the way, according to the Office of Enrollment Management. The LOBO Trax degree audit is an upgraded version of the current E-Progress report, said Annette Torres, Enrollment Management senior degree audit analyst. She said EProgress and Lobo Trax are made by the same company. Students have used E-Progress for 15 years to keep track of their classes. The program, which costs the University $5,000, shows credits needed to graduate, credits already taken, and GPA, along with other information. Torres said E-Progress should help students plan for graduation, but it’s too hard for students to understand – advisers usually have to interpret it. “Probably the biggest complaint that we would have about E-Progress was that it’s really hard to read,” Torres said. “It’s black and white, it’s very static and it can be a very lengthy report.” Junior Jesus “J” Valdez said he used the E-Progress report when he switched from University College to the College of Arts and Sciences. He said his adviser asked him to bring a copy of the report to plan for his
future classes. “My adviser kind of helped me with E-Progress — she showed me the page with the prerequisites and all the classes you need for that and she showed me how to read the report,” Valdez said. Valdez said he used E-Progress to plan his classes for the next few years but would like to plan his schedule without making a special trip to advisement. He said E-Progress looks outdated and is hard to read. A clearer degree audit would help, he said. “I’d definitely use an easier to read E-Progress report,” Valdez said. “The one that we have right now seems like it’s the way the old computers print things out. It looks like you’re reading a program on a command screen — it’s just all squished together.” LOBO Trax will be available to students in March 2010. Torres said the LOBO Trax degree audit will be a major improvement over the E-Progress report. She said it’s colorful, organized and easy to read. “LOBO Trax actually is going to have graphs and charts at the top that you can click on,” Torres said. “If you just want to see requirements for your major, you click on it, open it up, and it’s all in color.” LOBO Trax will help students plan classes and graduate on time, she said. The “Course Planner” is
woman of UNM NMYO, said the group has organized the fruit stand twice and plans to open it again on Friday. “We sell organic and local fruit and we’re trying to have that available for students on campus,” she said. “If all they have is just fast food, or something quick and easy like chips at the convenience store, we want them to have another option and show them that local food is important.”
Beardsley said the group gets fruit from La Montañita Co-op on Central. She said they buy the fruit in bulk from the Co-op and then sell individual pieces of fruit for $0.50 to $1. “We got wholesale from them for the first fruit stand, and we got kind of a little bit too much, so we gave the rest to Food Not Bombs,” she said. “We sell apples and pears, peaches, plums and nectarines.” Beardsley said the group got the
money to purchase fruit from the off-campus chapter of New Mexico Youth Organized. The group is trying to educate students about the benefits of locally grown food, Beardsley said. “Along with the fruit stand, we’re passing out information about different food issues,” she said. “We had stuff about food security and the importance of local food. If people want to come get fruit, they can get information, too. We want it to
extracted more specifics about the proposed changes, as a commenter asked for clarification about the increased number of college preparatory units. The comments are posted anonymously. “The proposal is vague about the incremental changes that will be activated over a three-year period,” one commenter said. “The year one adjustments are presented, but there is no presentation which college preparatory units will be added in years two and three.” Representatives from Enrollment Management — also anonymous — responded. “Year one will be the extra social science. Year two extra lab science,” they said. “Year three would ideally be the fourth math.” In a Sept. 23 interview, Terry Babbit, associate director of the Office
of Enrollment Management, said data from the last three years indicates students who took more college preparatory courses were more likely to complete their degrees. Student Lawrence Alderete said universities pushing students to work harder in high school will benefit America as a whole. “I think we need to raise the academic standards of all public universities in this country,” he said. “It will make us a little bit more competitive and able to sustain the American way of life in the next 50 to 100 years.” At the Sept. 23 Board of Regents Student Affairs meeting, Regent Carolyn Abeita said the public’s suggestions for admissions changes are valued.

one new feature of LOBO Trax that lets students plan to take classes two years in advance. Torres said this feature will work well with newly implemented multi-term registration, which will be available in fall 2010. “What this program is going to have that we’ve never had before with the degree audit is a course planner,” she said. “Students will have the ability to see what classes they need to take to complete their degree. Then they can click on it and add it into their course planner and it will show up in the audit as what they’re planning to take in the future.” Torres said the Office of Enrollment Management will use the LOBO Trax Course Planner to determine the popularity of future classes. This will help them ensure that these classes are available for students. Henry Gonzalez, Title-V Educational Initiatives program specialist, said students need to be careful and recognize that using the course planner and registering for classes is not the same thing. “The course planner is only for planning, not for registration,” Gonzalez said. “Students will have to realize that just because you planned classes in LOBO Trax, it doesn’t mean you registered for them. It’s just a tool to help students and administration.”

and I like all that glamorous stuff, but at the same time Iâ€™ll be able to talk about politics and the things that I am interested in. DL: How has it been growing up with your dad as the mayor? MC: He has been the mayor since I was three years old, so I was kind of born into a political environment. I didnâ€™t notice that it was necessarily any different from anyone else because that was all that I was used to. The one thing that was a little weird was being known as the mayorâ€™s daughter and having the stigma of that title. Iâ€™m really proud of my dad and who he is. DL: How often do you get approached by people solely because of who your dad is?

news in brief SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â€” A 70foot, female blue whale that officials believe was struck by a ship has washed ashore on the Northern California coast in what scientists are calling a rare occurrence. The whale was first spotted on shore near Fort Bragg in Mendocino County on Monday night, hours after an ocean survey vessel reported hitting a whale a few miles away, said Joe Cordaro, a wildlife biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationâ€™s marine fisheries service. Itâ€™s unusual for blue whales to wash ashore, Cordaro said. Last week, another blue whale washed up in Monterey County after being hit by a ship. Before that, the last time a blue whale washed onto a California beach was 2007. The whales are â€œusually far offshore, deep water animals,â€? Cordaro said. Although blue whales are considered endangered, experts say they have recently made a comeback and now number several thousand. Researchers have taken skin and blubber samples from the beached animal to see what contaminants it may have been exposed to and what population group it comes from.

ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) â€” Authorities searching for a missing 7-year-old north Florida girl said they found the body of a young child in a Georgia landfill Wednesday, but it has not yet been identified. Clay County, Fla., Sheriff Rick Beseler first said the body was a female, but then corrected himself and said he couldnâ€™t yet confirm the gender. The parents of Somer Thompson, who has been missing since Monday, have been notified. The body was found by Clay County detectives who followed garbage trucks from the girlâ€™s neighborhood to Folkston, Ga., just north of the Florida state line. Beseler said investigators searched through 100 tons of garbage before finding the partially covered body. He did not give any other details about the discovery. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was helping with the investigation and planned to conduct an autopsy on the body Thursday in its Savannah office, spokesman John Bankhead said.

From the web In “Heinrich stumps for flu prevention,” the Daily Lobo reported that Congressman Martin Heinrich met with UNM health officials on Monday to visit the flu vaccination clinic in the SUB and discuss how UNM is preparing for the H1N1 virus. Readers on DailyLobo.com responded: by ‘smilinggreenmom’ Posted Tuesday “I would also like to highly recommend a good probiotic as well. I have been reading up on all of this as much as possible and have found that all the use of hand sanitizers actually kills the beneficial bacteria that our body needs, too. So it is just as important to replenish them so we have the ability to fight off illness. Our family takes the Vidazorb chewables and we really love them. Thanks for the info here.” by ‘mateo’ Posted Tuesday “Yeah, stumping for flu prevention. Why doesn’t he take a few moments and speak to the people of his district about their feelings concerning the government taking over health care? Why doesn’t he ask our feelings on Cap and Trade? Recent surveys show that people in Heinrich’s district oppose government controlled health care by 65 to 35 percent, but does he vote ‘No’? Every study done shows the Cap and Trade bill is terribly wrong. The bill will increase fuel costs for gasoline, heating oil and natural gas. Where does Heinrich think the energy and supply companies are going to come up with the additional taxes and fees? They’re going to pass it on to us. They always do. So does Heinrich vote against such measures? No, he votes for them. You see, sometimes the people within a district don’t know what’s really best for them. Sometimes a representative to congress must vote for measures he thinks will be better for his district in the long run, even if the people there don’t want it. Well, Martin Heinrich, sometimes the people of this district will vote your sorry butt out of office for not listening to us. Remember you work for us. We pay your salary. We can and probably will fire you next year. So in the meantime, enjoy walking around the campus and proclaiming the health care is a model for the rest of the country. …” by ‘chayal’ Posted Wednesday “Mateo: Kind of off topic, but hey, I’m with you. This guy voted in favor of keeping Charlie Rangel in the chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee. Charlie freakin’ Rangel, the serial tax cheat. What does this say about Heinrich’s judgment?Don’t count on the lefties seeing the error of their ways and voting this jerk out of office. It doesn’t suit their purposes. With them it isn’t about what is good for the country or their community, but rather what will assure them political power.” Join the discussion at DailyLobo.com.

Letters Bible contains stories of genocide, suicide bomber Editor, The Bible contains some of the worst poison crap and some of the best precious wisdom ever written. Many people tragically swallow both the poison and the wisdom and proclaim it all the word of God. Deuteronomy 7:2 — “And when the Lord your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them; then you must utterly destroy them; you shall make no covenant with them and show no mercy to them.” Joshua 10:40 — “So Joshua smote the whole land. … He left none remaining but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord God of Israel commanded.” Samson was a suicide bomber. He prayed for God to strengthen him to do revenge and to murder his enemies as he killed himself. The building Samson destroyed was full of men and women, and 3,000 more people were

‘Black Gold’ sheds light on where students’ money goes Editor, Last November, many students voted for the first time in their lives after they chose not to do so in previous elections. The saying that “money talks, people walk”
on the roof, (Judges 16:25-30). Samson killed more people that day than were killed on Sept. 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Have you heard any preacher, priest or rabbi strongly condemn Samson’s vengeful mass murder of thousands of people? For more torture and mass murder in the name of God, read the books of Deuteronomy and Numbers in the Bible. Hitler was not the first to commit genocide. Columbus and other European invaders of the Americas were not the first to massacre indigenous people in the name of God. The Bible states that the Lord God commanded total genocide of every man, woman and child living in Palestine more than 3,000 years before Hitler. Today this is the U.S. Empire’s nuclear bomb policy toward targeted “enemy” nations. No wonder many Bible-believers who swallow the Bible’s poison crap as the word of God can build and finance nuclear weapons and wage war with no conscience, no guilt and no shame. Those Bible verses stating that God
commanded mass murder are spiritual poison. Those verses depict a vicious cosmic terrorist whom I refuse to worship and I would never want to spend eternity with. Many tribes and nations throughout history believed they were God’s favorites, God’s chosen people. They used God’s name to justify slaughtering their enemies. The Bible’s precious wisdom teaches us to love, forgive and do good to our enemies, to conquer evil with good, to treat all people as we want others to treat us, to apologize and make amends when we wrong others, to live simply and to reject addiction to money and status. Gandhi said the only people on Earth who do not realize Jesus was nonviolent are Christians. Read the Bible with extreme caution always. Spit out its poison crap. Take to heart its wisdom and aim to live it. Use compassion for all as the main test to separate its poison crap from its precious wisdom.
$50 bus stop for its ubiquitous shuttles. A shuttle stop at Lomas and Yale would give faculty, students and staff easy access to the city buses that pass by there almost every 10 minutes. And access to the Albuquerque City Bus system is the crucial key to a seat on the New Mexico Rail Runner. Parking and Transportation Services can build expensive parking lots and structures until they are blue in
the face, but that really won’t solve UNM’s underlying parking problems. UNM can show its support for alternative transportation by insisting that Parking and Transportation place a shuttle stop at Lomas and Yale. Let’s try something different for a change.
still rings true. The fact of the matter is that students cast a vote every single day with the dollars they spend on food and other goods. The money you spend on a daily basis on goods can have a bigger impact on the world than on the ballots you cast once every couple of years. Companies compete for your money every day. How you spend it has a far-reaching effect around the world. I would like to invite and challenge fellow
students to attend a special film screening today, Oct. 22, of “Black Gold” at 6:30 p.m. The event is sponsored by the UNM Fair Trade Initiative. Students of all majors and professions can attend, and you’ll be especially interested if you are studying sociology, economics, political science or management.

NM physicist under investigation A AHL Garden Supply by Heather Clark
The Associated Press ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Federal agents seized computers, papers, books and electronic equipment from the home of a former Los Alamos National Laboratory nuclear scientist, who believes the government is wrongly targeting him as a spy. P. Leonardo Mascheroni told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home Wednesday that four FBI agents searched his home for 13 hours on Monday. The agents, he said, led him to believe they were investigating him for espionage. “I am not a spy,” Mascheroni said. “If I were a spy, a long time ago I would have gone away from the United States with all my knowledge. Instead, I stay in my house all the time and am working all the time and presenting all the time to Congress. Is that what a spy does?” FBI spokesman Darrin Jones confirmed the agency is pursuing an “ongoing investigation” in Los Alamos, but declined further comment Wednesday. No charges have been filed against Mascheroni. Meanwhile, Mascheroni’s wife, Marjorie, a technical writer at the lab, was placed on administrative leave Monday while the lab conducts an internal investigation,
according to the lab. P. Leonardo Mascheroni joined the northern New Mexico lab in 1979, and worked in its X Division, which designs nuclear weapons, until 1987. He was laid off in 1988. Lab spokeswoman Lisa Rosendorf said he lost his job during layoffs that were prompted by budget cuts, but his supporters at the time said he was blackballed by the lab. Mascheroni said he believes the current investigation stems from his longtime criticism of the U.S. government’s nuclear program and, more specifically, from a recent meeting he had with a man claiming to be a representative from the Venezuelan government. He said he supports a hydrogen-fluoride laser to generate fusion, the energy source of the sun. That type of energy, he says, is cleaner, not radioactive and would produce a more reliable nuclear weapons stockpile. After the government and national labs took the U.S. nuclear program in a different direction, Mascheroni said he worked for three decades — first within the U.S. Department of Energy and the labs and then with Congress — to get a national hearing on his scientific proposals. He said that in the fall of 2007, he approached the Venezuelan government — along with physics departments at universities
in England and France — to see about a job to pursue his work. He was contacted in February 2008 by a man who said he represented the Venezuelan government and wanted to learn about starting a weapons program. The two met twice at a Los Alamos hotel for a total of 90 minutes, Mascheroni said. “I never passed information which I consider classified to a reporter or to Congress or to anybody,” Mascheroni said. “The information I passed is information I got from the Internet.” Mascheroni said he provided the man with a CD containing unclassified information widely available on the Internet. He said he hoped the Venezuelan government would hire him to work on his hydrogen-fluoride laser fusion project in New Mexico, which would help him prove his case to Congress. He asked that $400,000 be deposited into his Los Alamos bank account, but he was never paid. Rosendorf said she could not provide further details about the lab’s investigation of Mascheroni’s wife. She said Marjorie Mascheroni’s “Q’’ clearance, the highest clearance level that gives her access to classified information, has been revoked and she does not have access to the lab.
Plane crash in Dubai kills at least six by Adam Schreck
The Associated Press DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A Sudanese cargo plane crashed Wednesday shortly after takeoff from Sharjah airport near Dubai, killing at least six crew members. The Boeing 707 operated by Sudan Airways went down in unpopulated desert about two miles north of the airport, said Sheik Khalid alQassimi, director of the Sharjah department of civil aviation. He said there were no survivors among the six crew members aboard. Sudan’s official SUNA news agency quoted an unnamed official from the airline as saying seven crew members were killed. The discrepancy in the toll could not immediately be reconciled. As night fell, the cause of the crash remained unclear. The “black box” flight recorders that should contain information about the
flights have been recovered, alQassimi said. Witnesses described seeing the plane swing sharply to the right shortly after takeoff as it struggled to gain altitude. “We saw it taking off at quite a low level. The nose was quite high. Higher than normal,” said Bill Buchanan, a Dubai resident who was playing golf nearby. “It veered to the right, then nosed down straight into the desert. There was a huge ball of fire and smoke.” The wreckage was spread over a wide area near the Sharjah Golf & Shooting Club. Little of the plane remained intact. A tower of black smoke poured hundreds of feet into the air immediately after the crash, said Martin Duff, who was in his office at the golf academy when he heard a loud jet pass by overhead. “A couple of seconds later there was a big bang, and the whole

When I’m not with my parents, I’m pretty anonymous. When I’m with my parents is when people recognize me the most. DL: Have you ever felt limited in social situations by your dad’s profession? MC: My mom has made sure that my little brother and I have had a completely normal life. Nothing is different from anyone else except the fact that my dad has a public job. I wouldn’t say that I feel like I can’t do certain things that normal teenagers do. DL: How do you think things will be different now that your dad is no longer mayor? MC: I think it’s going to be very different. There was a period of four years where my dad was not the mayor because he was running for governor, so I’m trying to remember those four years to see how it’s going to be now. I think that we are going to be spending a lot more
time together which will be nice, because even though I respect the fact that he has a busy job and is a busy person, I think that family should always come first. So, now that he is not mayor, we will be able to be more of a close family. DL: Is it odd seeing him in public situations in comparison to how he is at home? MC: Obviously, my dad, when he’s giving press conferences, is talking about certain issues and he’s not going to be as laid back as he normally is. When he’s home with us he jokes around and we just have a typical father-daughter relationship. DL: What do you like to do in your spare time? MC: I go to school and I hang out with my friends.

Eightfold wholesome fun by Candace Hsu Daily Lobo
Doug Gardner of Arlington, Va., is revolutionizing the world of paper puzzles in his spare time. Gardner, a computer security specialist, created the “Octo” puzzle in the summer of 2007. Like Sudoku and Kakuro, the puzzle plays with positional logic and adding numbers together. It requires players to place numbers 1-8 in a certain order to match a sum diagonally and linearly. There are numbers at the end of each diagonal and line. “I am a huge puzzle fan, I have liked them all my life,” Gardner said. “I have always been interested in crosswords, word searches, things like that. I also was very interested in math at an early stage, which led to puzzles. Like a lot of
people, I was taken by Sudoku. It’s really neat how it makes you think about how things fit uniquely into a pattern.” Gardner said he tried different shapes for the puzzle, and the octagon proved to be the best fit. “After I got the structure right, I started filling them out by hand,” he said. “Eventually I created a computer program that could generate puzzles within minutes. There was still trial and error on top of the computer program because I had to set certain rules to make sure there is only one valid answer.” Gardner said solving a puzzle can take 10 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the level of difficulty. The “Octo” puzzles can be completed by players of any age, particularly late elementary students and up, Gardner said.
“My 9-year-old daughter can do the easiest ones,” he said. “They can be done by anyone. College students have really been taken by it too because it has a competitive edge to it.” Gardner said no major publishing company has expressed interest in the puzzles yet. He said the puzzle needs to reach a group of people who are willing to “convert” to a different kind of puzzle. Gardner wants the puzzles to be published in newspapers, in books, and on Web sites. “It is fun to go through the learning processes,” Gardner said. “I didn’t know about patenting and marketing, so I am learning as I go. Now the puzzle is done, in the sense that it isn’t just an idea

Courtesy of Mike Figgis XPaul Miller, aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, traveled to Antarctica to get footage for his performance on Saturday at the Kimo Theater. Student rush tickets are $10, 10 minutes before the show.
DJ blends icy sounds and chamber music by Alisha Catanach Daily Lobo
Antarctica is the star of an upcoming multimedia piece, while live turntable music will play the supporting role. Paul Miller — aka DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid — will perform a 70-minute audio visual piece titled “Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica” at the Kimo Theater on Saturday. A quartet of local chamber musicians will accompany him. “It’s meant to be a kind of total digital media experience,” he said. “I try to get people to think outside the box about what DJing means — is it about film, is it about music, is it about literature? Basically, most people think DJing is just making a party rock. ... That’s cool, but I think there’s a lot more to it than that.” Miller spent more than four weeks in Antarctica in 2007 and recorded sounds of the melting ice caps in a portable studio. Video footage of Antarctica plays on a backdrop during “Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica,” and the score captures the continent’s harsh geographical environment. “I guess you could say it’s all about landscape,” Miller said. “Sound is waves and patterns, and so is the land beneath your feet. Tectonic plate movement, gravity, you name it. Ice is just a pattern too, so I wanted to figure out a way to transform it into music.” Miller said he was inspired to go to Antarctica by the complexity and beauty of the natural world. “The world is changing so quickly, I just wanted to make a document about it, and think of the Earth as a different kind of record,” he said. “If you really look at all the different things going on, one of the most subtle and beautiful situations that makes life worth living on this planet is the beauty of the natural world. It’s something we’ve lost.” The Outpost Performance Space and 516 Arts are hosting the event as part of the Land/Art project, which
Saturday, 7:30 p.m. “Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antartica” Kimo Theater 423 Central Ave. S.W. $10 Student Rush Tickets
ends in November. Land/Art works through a collaboration of organizations throughout New Mexico to host artists and exhibitions with land-based art. Tom Guralnick, executive director of The Outpost Performance Space, said it is a treat to have Miller perform “Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica” in New Mexico. “It’s been performed in several places, but not that many, so it’s pretty special we are bringing it here to New Mexico,” Guralnick said. Suzanne Sbarge, project coordinator of Land/Art and Director of 516 Arts, said she was excited to have Miller be a part of Land/Art. “It adds a wonderful scope to the Land/Art project, the way that he combines turntables, chamber quartet and video all into one multimedia performance,” Sbarge said. Katie Harlow, a local cellist, will be playing in the quartet alongside Miller on Saturday. She said the score has a series of riffs that can be repeated or rearranged based on what Miller wants to do that night. “It’s really fun to work with somebody who is a DJ artist,” Harlow said. “It’s a newer genre, so it’s fun to have that expanded musical vocabulary to draw from.” Miller has worked with a number of artists throughout the years, from Kool Keith to Killah Priest, from the Wu-Tang Clan to Yoko Ono, among others. Miller’s newest CD, The Secret Song was released this month and features special guests including Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth and

Rob Smith of the Executioners. Student tickets for Saturday are $10, 10 minutes before the show, based on availability. Otherwise, students get $5 off the regular seating prices from $20 - $30. After the show, patrons can meet DJ Spooky at a reception in the Richard Levy Gallery across the street from the Kimo Theater. There will also be an open house at 516 Arts.

HALLOWEEN HAPS IS COMING!
New Mexico Daily Lobo
Imagine getting to rub elbows with your favorite band, but in a strangerâ€™s house with 50 other people you donâ€™t know â€” thatâ€™s the general idea of a house show. â€œTo be honest, I always enjoy going to and playing house shows more,â€? said Kendal Fortson, lead singer of The William Tell Act. â€œItâ€™s the closest thing to the original basement shows of punk and hardcore days. This is like an underground within an underground.â€? Fortsonâ€™s band performs this Saturday at Gold Manor, along with bands Hour of the Wolf, I Call Fives, and Dead Hours. Far from being a professional concert venue like the Sunshine Theater or Journal Pavilion, Gold Manor is just a house owned by local Albuquerqueans. It doesnâ€™t even have a stage. â€œItâ€™s literally people saying, â€˜Come into my house.â€™â€? Fortson said. â€œWeâ€™re going to have some sweaty bands and sweaty kids having a good time.â€? In the spirit of community, Fortsonâ€™s band will also trade merchandise for food to be donated to Food Not Bombs. Because of Albuquerqueâ€™s small music scene, touring indie and punk bands would often skip the city, Fortson said. However, with the growth of the house party scene, musical artists like JDP and The Warriors are now willing to play in the Duke City. â€œIt can be very difficult in New Mexico to get some decent shows,â€? Fortson said. â€œIn response to that, the youth in Albuquerque has really stepped in this kind of house show atmosphere. Itâ€™s almost like regular venues.â€?
House shows are also gaining popularity with certain bands who like to interact with the audience directly, Fortson said. â€œThe bands tend to keep coming through,â€? he said. â€œThe bands get all the money from the door. Certain bands, every time they come through, they play a house show. Hour of the Wolf is one of the bands. â€Ś And they always get a really big showing.â€? But some fans might find the intimacy to be too much. Local concertgoer and UNM student, Estevan Ramirez, said his experience at Gold Manor was uncomfortable. â€œI went there, and tried to get in, but I couldnâ€™t get in,â€? Ramirez said. â€œThe sound was so loud that even with all the people you could hear the echo outside. I wish it was bigger.â€? The house scene in Albuquerque continues to grow thanks to the efforts of underground promotion groups Subterranean Albuquerque and You Vandal Promotions, Fortson said. And as the house scene expands, itâ€™s developing its own community. â€œWhen you go to some of the bigger shows, you go there, you see the band, and you go home,â€? Fortson said. â€œAt these kinds of shows you go there and you get to know people, and you make friends, and then you hear about other shows and hear about other events going on. Itâ€™s really a much more active scene. It is its own culture; itâ€™s not just a venue.â€? However, the success of a house show also depends on the band thatâ€™s playing, said another local concertgoer, David Cappy. With a band youâ€™re familiar with, it might be better to see them at a larger venue, he said.
â€œIt just feels like a party to me where there happens to be music, although thatâ€™s why the party is happening,â€? he said. Newcomers to the house show scene should expect a bit of goodnatured teasing about their musical tastes from established members of the community, Fortson said. However, if newcomers are serious about the spirit of indie music, they will be accepted. â€œI think at the end of the day, everybody realizes nobody is born liking Spaz (music),â€? he said. â€œEveryone has to develop and learn about music. I have seen a lot of people who are new, and a lot of people come and go. If someone is interested, and they are a friendly person, people are going to take to them like a duck to water.â€? Fortson said perhaps the biggest advantage of a house show over a regular concert is the way it reduces the grandeur of rock â€˜nâ€™ roll stars and brings them back down to earth. â€œIf youâ€™re into big theatrical rock it would take away from that (grandeur), but I would also say if thatâ€™s what you are into, this probably wouldnâ€™t be your thing because punk and hardcore has always been about getting rid of the illusion of the rock star,â€? he said. â€œYouâ€™re right there with the band. House shows are the way to go to kind of tear down those walls. The bands and fans are of equal importance.â€?
have social benefits. Having a book with â€œOctoâ€? puzzles could be used to entertain, kill time, and teach people to work together, she said. â€œIt was addicting,â€? she said. â€œI had to finish it once I started it.â€? Gardner said completing the â€œOctoâ€? puzzle requires persistence, and having a puzzle that is different from Sudoku gives puzzlers more variety. â€œIt is satisfying for me to service those who are looking for something different,â€? Gardner said. â€œâ€˜Octoâ€™ is healthy entertainment. I enjoy them enough to test all the
ones I create. I think it is important for people to practice logical thinking.â€? Gardner said puzzles give wwwwpeople a different type of entertainment than watching TV or movies. â€œIt helps your cognitive powers,â€? he said. â€œIt is the idea of good wholesome entertainment. Puzzles are not plagued with standard issues that are found in movies and TV. Puzzles give social issues because you can work together on them. It is just important to find mental challenges. It is good for you.â€?

that needs to be built. The puzzle actually exists, and now I am just seeing where it leads.â€? Scott Free, a graduate of Montana State, worked on one of the â€œOctoâ€? puzzles for the first time on Monday. â€œI thought the puzzle was sophisticated,â€? Free said. â€œThere are many dimensions of variability. I think there are more dimensions in it than Sudoku. I donâ€™t know how a person could generate these and put in enough information into it to make it solvable. That makes it intriguing.â€? Jacque Marquez, a freshman at UNM, said the â€œOctoâ€? puzzles also
