Student no-shows irritate would-be attendees by Shaun Griswold

It’s the hottest seat in town, but some ticket-holding students stay home. Students’ men’s basketball tickets are sold out until the Dec. 22 game against Citadel, but the top student section rows have been empty for every home game, which has students questioning how UNM distributes free student tickets. “It could be a lot better,” student Erick Ford said. “UNM could save some tickets to give out on game day. Students know it is sold out, and they give up trying to go even though there are seats to be had.” For home games, UNM distributes 1,650 free student tickets on the north side of The Pit. Kim Goodson, UNM Ticket Services business manager, said The Pit does not lose money on empty seats because student fees pay for the tickets before the season starts. She said there are no plans to change the distribution policy, even though the student section has empty seats. “We have no control over how many students go to the game,” Goodson said. The ticket office does not keep figures of student attendance. Sports Information Director Frank Mercogliano said the Athletics Department will work with student governments to ensure tickets are being used, but he did not offer details. “We are constantly looking at methods to ensure that those tickets are being used,” he said. To make it easier for students, tickets are handed out for five games at a time. Students gobbled up tickets for the first five games in less than two days, a ticket office representative said. Dec. 6 is the next ticket distribution date, but ticketless students will have

The next student ticket distribution date is Dec. 6, but Gallegos said that students don’t show up to games, despite being given free tickets. to wait until 2011 to watch a game. The next five available games are scheduled on select dates from Jan. 6-29. The Lobos play Cal State Bakersfield, Colorado State, San Diego State, TCU and BYU during that period. Early in the semester, student Roberto Gallegos said he waited 15-20

minutes to get tickets to the first five regular-season games. He sat near the top of the student section during Sunday’s home game against San Diego with 18 empty rows in front of him. “I have a feeling a lot of kids are out of town or forgot there was a basketball game,” he said. “I don’t know how

UNM should give out tickets. Maybe students shouldn’t get tickets if they don’t plan to come to the game.” Student John Terrazas, who couldn’t attend games because tickets were sold out, said he arrives a half hour early to each game in order to sit three rows from the court.

He said he has since bought season tickets to avoid missing games. “I know two friends who couldn’t go to the ticket office because they were in class,” Terrazas said. “When they got out and tried to get tickets, it was sold out. If they let us get them at the entrance, more people would come.”

UNM soldiers on despite Schmidly’s absence by Chelsea Erven

University Spokeswoman Susan McKinsey said communication be-

UNM President David Schmidly has spent more time out of office than any other president since at least the 1930s, but University communication, policy making and budget discussions have continued on main campus while Schmidly recuperates. Acting President Paul Roth said in a Nov. 1 campus-wide e-mail he began a series of luncheons that allow him to meet with students and faculty to discuss University issues. “I’ve found this to be a fine way to share information and look forward to spending time with a number of you over the coming weeks,” he said. Schmidly has been on extended medical leave since his Aug. 17 operation on a slow-growing abdominal tumor, and in mid-October, Schmidly appointed Roth, executive vice president of Health Sciences, as acting president until he is cleared to return.

“He has been meeting with a lot of faculty ... and I believe he is really listening,”

~Richard Wood Faculty Senate President tween Schmidly and Roth has been effective. “It is really simple and straightforward,” she said. “They are in daily telephone contact.” At a November Faculty Senate meeting, Senate President Richard Wood voiced support for Roth and the work he has done in Schmidly’s absence. “He has been meeting with a lot of faculty ... and I believe he is really listening,” Wood said. “The discourse of the University has shifted in a very important way. The tone

and tenor of the meetings, and the kind of meetings that are happening, have changed in very important ways.” And communication to students, faculty and staff has continued without a hitch through the Monday Morning Message, which University administrators, including Roth and Schmidly, collaborate on, McKinsey said. Wood also said he supports Roth’s policies on impending budget cuts, though he was reluctant to compare Roth’s stance with Schmidly’s. “Acting President Roth has adopted a lot of what I believe to be the right language,” Wood said at the November meeting. “Even in these hard budget times, he has said, ‘There will be no 5 percent, acrossthe-board cuts to academic departments; we will make better budget decisions.’” The decision not to make acrossthe-board budget cuts is something that resonates with everyone on campus, McKinsey said, and she

stressed that all decisions have been made jointly by Roth and Schmidly. “Roth is not going to make any great big announcements without the president’s knowledge.” she said. Schmidly’s recovery, however, is taking longer than expected. A Nov. 12 Albuquerque Journal article reported that Schmidly is continuing to get full benefits despite his extended medical absence. Schmidly was eligible for a maximum of three months sick leave, the Journal reported, but the threemonth mark passed more than a week ago. In a Nov. 22, University-wide email, Roth contested “rumors” that Schmidly’s sick leave was coming to an end. “Let me say that following: (After) his surgery in August, he suffered a very stormy and difficult post-operative course, resulting in a longer than expected convalescence,” Roth said in the e-mail “He is, however, continuing to make a strong recovery, and we fully expect his return to

duty well before his maximum extended sick leave benefits expire in February 2011.” Roth also said that Schmidly’s benefits and sick-leave allowances are governed by University policies. In addition to extended leave, Schmidly is allowed almost six weeks of annual leave, which could only extend his absence with benefits through the end of December, if he hasn’t already taken any personal leave. University officials declined to release the amount of personal time Schmidly has used. According to University policy, an employee returning to work after an extended medical leave must submit a physician’s statement certifying that the employee can safely return to work, something Schmidly is not yet able to do. Phillip Gonzales, senior associate dean, said an employee’s medical leave can be renewed, but decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. He said he could not speak to

Backstage: Bike Coop

Greg Overman, right, took over the Bike Coop on Central Avenue in 1998. He dropped out of New Mexico State University in 1972 because of financial problems. He was studying music at the time, and he worked in a bike shop in Las Cruces. He said he hadn’t planned on being a life-long bike mechanic. “But doing what you enjoy is quite a privilege,” Overman said. “Especially if that’s your job and you get to do what you enjoy.” After moving to Albuquerque in 1973, he kept working on bikes in different shops around town. He said his mother taught him how to fix things. “When I was a little kid, I liked taking things apart and not always putting them together,” he said. “My mother made it clear to me that if I was gonna do that I have to learn how to put it back together, so it will work. And that’s how I started it.” “Life is short. All I have to do is enjoy as much as I can,” he said.

Frat on hold after club ordeal

The Afro-american experience by Eva Dameron This marks the last column in the Afro-American Experience series, which has ran since the beginning of the semester. We hope you got some insight from reading these heartfelt installments, and good luck on your final exams. Political science major Patrick Barrett said prisons retain more black men than universities do. “You don’t see too may AfricanAmericans at the graduate level,� he said. “A lot of people with a criminal record, they’re not entitled to go to school. We’re here on scholarships and grants. Once you’re convicted of a felony, that’s all out the window. Most of them are charged with nonviolent drug offenses. It’s mostly petty drug sales, and most people plead out without ever realizing how it’s going to impact their future.� He said former President Ronald Reagan’s administration gave police departments monetary incentives to go after drug offenders. “His war on drugs really devastated the black community,� Barrett said. He said that in 1990, there were 900 college graduates in Wisconsin compared with 18,000 prisoners in the same state that year. As the president of the Black Student Union, Barrett wants to represent a more real picture of AfricanAmericans. “Not all black men sag their pants, but we’re honorable, righteous men that take care of our families, who are responsible and work hard,� he said. “And the way I’ve made it through

this academic world has been through people like Dr. Jamal Martin, Dr. (Charles) Becknell and Dr. (Finnie) Coleman. Since we don’t have a large number, black students have to reach out to these guys to help them succeed in this type of environment because they’ve been through what we’re trying to go through. They can give us pointers how to navigate through this system. It’s more like a mentoring. Daily Lobo: What’s hard about the system? Patrick Barrett: When they have student elections here and they’re outside passing out fliers, they’ll go to everybody else but they won’t go to you. It’s like, not recognizing your humanity. DL: ASUNM senator candidates ignore you? PB: Yeah. I was walking with a friend, and I told her, “Watch, we’re going to go through here and nobody is going to try to approach us or give us a flier or sell themselves.� And nobody approached me. I was like, “See what I mean?� She was like, “Wow.� It’s not in my mind, like I’m making this up. It’s just the reality. You can’t be late for class because all eyes are on you. They don’t want to sit by you in the class. Or make eye contact. Nobody sits next to me. And this kind of stuff: one person, empty seat, myself, empty seat, a person — funny dynamic, huh? And this is like, the whole semester. We don’t bite. Why are you so scared?

circus and into his soul. On an end note: “I want to say, for me, it has been a really great opportunity to have worked with some outstanding people here at UNM, and I thank UNM for giving me the opportunity to help me reach my God-given potential, and if you see me around campus, holla atcha boy,� Barrett said. “That’s right. Put some Ebonics in there. Will your editors let you keep that?�

clarification In Tuesday’s article, “Housing ‘plan’ confuses, worries community,� a quote from Real Estate director Kim Murphy, which appeared at the very end of the story, was cut short and could perhaps be taken out of context. His full statement about what would need to be determined before a ground lease with ACC was signed was, “Are we going to have everything from A to Z figured out when we sign it? That will come later. There are a lot of details and there will be an abundance of material in the ground lease that sort of sets the framework of how we’re going to collectively operate and manage this housing program.�

information. If found to have violated UNM’s Student Code of Conduct, Conley, Williams and Harris face “verbal/ written warnings, disciplinary probation, suspension or possible expulsion,� according to the sanctions section. Because it was not a sponsored fraternity event, White admitted he hadn’t looked into the incident and said the players acted on their own. He said their behavior is not indicative of what the fraternity promotes. At least four security personnel and a go-go dancer were injured in the brawl when security personnel said someone with Conley tried to gain access to the nightclub’s 21and-over section using Conley’s ID. No criminal charges have been filed against Williams or Harris, but an APD spokeswoman said Monday that the two would likely be summoned to court in the future. As for Conley, his court date is still pending, and owner Brian Craig has threatened to take criminal and civil action against the three football players.


Agitated by a suggestion that other Kappa Alpha Psi members allegedly brawled with security at a downtown nightclub, the fraternity’s faculty adviser Richard White wanted to make one thing clear. White said, to his knowledge, only UNM football players Julion Conley, Bryant Williams and Joe Harris — all members of the fraternity — were involved in an altercation at Lotus Nightclub early Thanksgiving morning, even though an Athletics Department statement sent out Nov. 26 quoted head coach Mike Locksley as saying, “several members of a fraternity on campus were involved in an altercation at a downtown nightclub.� White said the coverage on the brawl has unnecessarily thrust the fraternity into the spotlight. “I don’t think we would have been implicated in this situation if somebody hadn’t put our name in there,� he said. “If we had hosted a party or something, we’d be having a totally different conversation. It’s just individuals acting on their own.

Unfortunately, our fraternity is attached to behavior of others, and we have to make sure we take proper actions.� The fallout prompted White to suspend all social activities for the remainder of the academic school year. That all fraternity members are suffering from the actions of a few is unfortunate, White said, but it’s necessary to send a deterrent message and uphold the organization’s tenets of accountability, achievement and excellence. This came a day after Kim Kloeppel, with the Dean of Students, told the Daily Lobo that her office was investigating the matter to determine whether the three football players breached the University’s Student Code of Conduct. She said it also planned to explore whether other Kappa Alpha Psi members were involved in the scuffle or were with Conley at the club when the incident occurred. Kloeppel had few new details Tuesday and said her office had yet to receive the APD report, but some of her staff members had phoned the club owner and Athletics representatives to find more

From the web In Tuesday’s story, “UNM opens probe into nightclub incident,” Managing Editor Isaac Avilucea updated readers on the investigation into three UNM football players who allegedly were involved in a brawl at Lotus Nightclub early Thanksgiving morning. Readers sounded off: by ‘Sean’ Posted Tuesday “Everyone involved expelled.”



by ‘BABS’ Posted Tuesday “Wait for it folks … UNM is gonna ‘bungle’ this investigation too.” by ‘Concerned Alumni’ Posted Tuesday “These boys are very respectable. They are young men who were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are young and are learning; however, I think that the security at these clubs tries to belittle people and are playing the victim’s role. Has anyone tried to hear the side of the players? This story seems very one sided right now, and it seems that we need both sides before making a judgment. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. Sounds important to me. Seems now the club just wants media attention.” by ‘Tired of this team’ Posted Tuesday “Yeah they are young, but wrong place and wrong time? C’mon, really? They chose to go there, they chose to go at the time they did, they chose to try to get into a club they were not supposed to be at. When I was in elementary school I learned that when you are in the wrong you apologize. And then I learned in middle school to just walk away.’” by ‘Drop the football team’ Posted Tuesday “How much will it this cost UNM to defend athlete thugs (and coaches)? The football team should be dropped. But what will be UNM’s solution? Giving these ‘athletes’ their own bar at the Pit, so they don’t go on rampages for a drink?” by ‘Kate’ Posted Tuesday “Ha, I see athletes downtown all the time acting like idiots. Seriously, just get rid of the athletes invovled and call it a day.”

Arab leaders need to pay up to all Jews not just ‘godless Zionists’ Editor:

Editorial Board Pat Lohmann Editor-in-chief

Jenny Gignac Opinion editor

Leah Valencia News editor

I was on campus today and picked up the Daily Lobo. I was interested to read Muhajir Romero’s letter. It certainly was a powerful statement, but I must confess that part of it left me confused, namely his statement that the majority of Arab leaders have “sold their souls to the godless Zionists. I’m a Jew and a Zionist. I’ve been a Zionist as long as I can remember and listened to my mother’s stories about surviving anti-Jewish riots at the University of Vienna in the early 1930s, knowing that her father (my grandfather) was one of the last Jews to get out of Vienna in 1939. I took my first trip to Israel at 14 and have been back several times. My sister lives in Israel. My nephew is Israeli, and

I feel such a sense of outrage about this injustice that I have developed a counterproposal that has so much incredible positive merit that it just makes me tremble to think about it. Let’s not tax these fantastically productive and creative citizens who are all probably college graduates. Let’s tax the unemployed! There are about 2 million of these unproductive louts who are just standing around doing nothing but sucking up space. If these bums had any merit or talent, the rich, productive folks would have hired them long ago. Instead, these wastrels just keep on collecting government checks and driving up the national debt. These lazy dope smokers should be contributing to society!

Taxing the unemployed has two distinct advantages. No. 1, these unemployed hippies can’t afford to hire tax attorneys and accountants to defend themselves, so it’s quite simple to collect their tax dollars. No. 2, if we tax them hard enough, perhaps they will stop using up valuable resources, such as food and air. They will just fade away and stop bothering us. After all, this is America, so let’s get in the holiday spirit and tax the unemployed this happy season. Merry Christmas, and ho-ho-ho, everyone!

deranged and ignorant of UNM’s student body. One such student, the admirably vocal Muhajir Romero, managed to outdo himself in a recently published letter, wherein he shamelessly reduces the innumerable complexities of an entire geopolitical region into a single vitriolic, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

Thank you for reminding me that I have the privilege of sharing my academic environment with maniacs such as Romero. I’m looking forward to further scrutinizing his apparent incapacity for thought or reason in future publishings.

my incredibly cute grandniece is an 11month-old Israeli. My confusion stems from the fact that I have regular Shabbat dinners at my home, welcoming in the Shabbat with the appropriate prayers. I attend Shabbat morning services regularly. I’m hosting a Hanukkah party this year, and I’m invited to two others. I consider myself religious, not godless. All the rabbis I have known have been Zionists, and all my religious school teachers, too. So I am confused about why the Arab leaders sold out to godless Zionists. Zionism, the goal to live as a free and independent Jewish people on our own land, dates back to Judaism’s earliest days, to the psalmist who wrote: By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. (Psalm 137) Religious Zionists certainly compose the majority of soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces and Jews around the world say next year in Jerusalem at the end of the Passover Seder every year.

I think it is unfair that the Arab leaders have sold their souls to an almost infinitesimal minority of the Jewish people. There hasn’t even been a godless party since the decline of Mapam in the 1960s. On the other hand, perhaps if Romero inadvertently misspoke and Arab leaders have in fact sold their souls to all Zionists, regardless of degree of religious observance, why haven’t I gotten some of that money? I would greatly appreciate it if he would let me know where I can go to receive my payment from Arab leaders to the Zionists. Could I receive payment here in the U.S.? Do I have to collect payment in Israel? In an Arab capital? Again, I would greatly appreciate any information Romero has in this regard. Thank you.

Math chair tells why she left by Chelsea Erven

Secrecy surrounded Math Department Acting Chair Deborah Sulsky’s decision to step down of in early November, but e-mails revealed her reasons for leaving and then returning to the position shortly after. Sulsky stepped down because of lack of administrative support toward the department, according to documents obtained from the Office of the Custodian of Public Record. She said despite identifying

an “excellent candidate” for an administrative support position, the department made it clear that support staff would not be hired. “Without adequate administrative support in the department office, it is not feasible for me to continue effectively serving the department and still meet my contractual obligations ...,” Sulsky said in a Nov. 1 e-mail to Dean Brenda Claiborne. “I stayed in the position this long due to loyalty to my department colleagues and under the belief that staff support would be forthcoming.”

Originally Claiborne said the department would appoint a new acting chair, but Sulsky returned to her post, according to a Nov. 12 email. In it, Claiborne thanked Sulsky for stepping back into the position. She said a new staff member had been hired. Sulsky replied with an e-mail saying, “We all appreciate your efforts in getting the department back on track. … I look forward to working with you as acting chair for the rest of the semester and in whatever role I have in the future.”

Korean barrage raises tensions by Hyung-Jin Kim Associated Press

INCHEON, South Korea — A South Korean fisherman whose neighborhood was swallowed by flames in last week’s North Korean shelling saw a TV image of the North’s leader, Kim Jong Il, and cringed. “I want to kill him,” said Kwak Yong-sun, who now lives on the floor of a public bath house on the mainland. “I almost died because of that man.” Kwak, 50, sleeps shoulder to shoulder with other evacuees from Yeonpyeong Island on a mattress in a huge room in the spa, which has been converted into a refugee center. He complained of noise, stale air and a lack of sleep. “It’s not a place where human beings can live,” he said. The Nov. 23 artillery barrage killed four people — two South Korean marines and two civilians — and sharply raised tensions on the divided peninsula. The United States and South Korea on Wednesday ended military exercises that included the aircraft carrier USS George Washington. The drills were meant as a warning to the North following last week’s exchange


of artillery fire. At the heavily armed Panmunjom village inside the Demilitarized Zone north of Seoul, a North Korean soldier said in a rare interview that he hoped for peace. Lt. Choe Song Il told Associated Press Television News that he hoped tensions between the two countries would be eased “as soon as possible, in a peaceful way.” “I know that there were casualties on the South side,” Choe told an APTN crew from the North Korean capital of Pyongyang that he had been assigned to escort to the Demilitarized Zone. “I hope that such military conflict between North and South should never happen again,” he said. It was unclear whether his conciliatory comments were spontaneous or not, and whether they merely reflected one soldier’s opinion or were meant to reflect the military’s stance as a whole. North Korean citizens usually are very careful about expressing opinions. They were striking words at a time of heightened tensions between the Koreas and a departure from the bellicose rhetoric of North Korea’s staterun news agency, which has threatened “full-scale war” this week if the country’s territory is violated by any military maneuvers.

Schmidly’s case. “I can’t speak to any particular case, just general policy,” Gonzales said. “These are very personal matters.” It has been almost 70 years since University officials have had to deal with such personal matters. University archivist Terry Gugliotta said the only previous medi-

cal absence of a president she can recall was that of President Zimmerman who suffered a heart attack in 1939. Gugliotta said Zimmerman spent several weeks in the hospital and in recovery during which his executive assistant, Tom Popejoy, took over. Zimmerman returned to his position, but died in office four years later.

The Independent Voice of UNM since 1895 Rates of Plasma Donation

Page / Ext. 131

After your first two times, pay is based on weight, and you can donate twice in a seven-day period, but not on consecutive days

110-149 pounds 1st visit in a week $15 2nd visit in a week $18

The rates are different because amounts of plasma are withdrawn based on weight. Obviously, the smaller the weight, the smaller of amount of fluid drawn, and the smaller price tag. And, yes, there are weight limits for those that are too heavy or too light.

150-174 pounds 1st visit in a week $20 2nd visit in a week $28 175-400 pounds 1st visit in a week $20 2nd visit in a week $33


DONATE Editor’s Note: It starts with something simple but expensive, say, a $276 speeding ticket from the grand state of Oklahoma. Suddenly, donating plasma to get money not only becomes and option but a necessity. You heard somewhere you don’t really need your plasma, at least not all of it, and since you need, or at least want, some extra cash you decide to check it out. But let the Daily Lobo save you the trouble of something you might be incapable of doing. Culture Editor Chris Quintana literally gave up his life fluid for you people so you would have a better sense of what goes on in plasma donation:

by Chris Quintana My day at the Yale Plasma Center began at 10 a.m. and didn’t finish until 2:30 p.m. The process includes a medical screening, health questions, an AIDS awareness test and waiting. And more waiting. And then more waiting, just when I thought it was all over. And when I was done with all that, there’s the needle. It’s about the size of a ballpoint pen tip, and it goes in the vein, right in the crook of the arm. But I am getting a bit ahead of myself. For those interested in donating, here’s what’s required: a letter addressed to you within the last 30 days, your social securi-

ty card and your state driver’s license to verify your identity. From here, it’s all about the questionnaires. They give you a giant packet to read, stuff dealing with AIDS, Crohn’s disease, eating habits, dangers associated with donation and so on. A couple of new donors were there the day I came in, and they just skimmed over everything. It’s safe to say that’s probably standard. From there begin the questionnaires. They ask about any diseases, surgeries, tattoos (sorry folks, but some tattoos specifically those that can’t be verified by a professional agency will disqualify you from donating), sexual activity and any time spent in Europe. I answered the same questions about two or three times, but it’s reassuring in a way. This plasma is going to help someone, the signs in the clinic says, and it only makes sense that they would want to run checks on it. Here’s the difficult part: They are long waits between these questions the first time you go in. There’s a lot of processing of records, blood and urine that takes a while. On top of that, they enter you into their system and check you against a plasma registry to make sure you haven’t been blacklisted from any other plasma donation centers. Standard stuff, mostly, but it takes a long while. Actually, waiting, after a while,

does terrible things to the mind. You start wondering if the person in front of you cut, whether the people dealing with your files are actually doing anything other than just chatting with one another. Basically, you go insane, and then wait even longer. From there, it’s a urine test, and from there a brief and noninvasive physical. And then some more waiting. The whole time you do this, return donors come in, sign a sheet, and then are called to the back where they are hooked up to large machines. You see this, and wish it was you, because they get to leave sooner. Eventually, once your paperwork is done, and the tests finished, you go through the normal donation process. They pull up your file, and call you to the front desk. They prick you with a needle, and weigh you. They also mark you with a UV marker so you can’t donate at other centers. They ask you more questions, and then you wait again, and then finally, you’re called back. There are rows of machines, each with a tiny centrifuge inside. It draws blood, then spins it, separating the red blood cells from plasma, and then returns the blood, but to do any of this, it’s got to draw blood, and that blood comes from human beings. In this case, me. Which brings us back to the needle.

Tips for successful plasma donation Drink lots of water. If you already drink water, you will need to drink more to make sure your body can stand losing about a liter of fluid. The staff has a saline solution that helps keep you hydrated and your blood from coagulating, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. Avoid fatty foods and dairy products the day before donation. They will put fat in your blood and make the donation process longer than it needs to be. No alcohol or caffeine before donation day. Alcohol will dry you out completely, and caffeine will cause excessive urination. Bring a book, or some form of distraction. This way, you don’t go crazy from waiting. See, I used to donate plasma as a freshman, and I have slight scars on my arms from it. I know the process of getting stuck, as the phlebotomists and patrons call it, and I did fine until an infiltration occurred. That’s when the phlebotomist ruptures the vein with the needle. Then the skin swells, in my case, to golf ball size. They gave me ice for the swelling, and I was fine but spooked. I stopped for a while, but then needed more money and came back as is the case with most people there. Ask anyone in the clinic. A lot have had this happen, some are even happy. You get an extra $5 when it does. This time, the stick went off without a hitch. There’s a tiny amount of pain when the needle enters the vein, but it goes away quickly, and from there it’s just suction. The blood is drawn, put into the machine, spun, and returned once the plasma is harvested. The returned red blood cells feel a little cold, but it’s reassuring to

know you’re getting your blood back. This cycle happens about four to six times, depending on how fatty your blood is, and that’s it. There’s a bottle that you can see filling with your plasma as an indication of how much longer you have to go. The person donating generally loses about a liter of fluid, but it depends. I ended up hooked to the machine for about an hour and a half, but that was largely my fault (See graphic). The removal of the needle is also painless. They pull it out, you apply pressure on the wound, and then they wrap it tight with gauze to prevent bleeding. After the process, I was a bit woozy and lightheaded, but I got $20 the first time. The next visit I am scheduled for $35. And I got to say, I was pleased. Sure there’s the issue of selling bodily fluids, but the money is so easy and fast. If you need money and want it without much work, plasma donation might be the answer you’re looking for.

Rituals of the Land & Spirit Photo Exhibit by Professor Miguel Gandert Inspired by Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima November 1 – December 3, 2010 Gallery of Design · George Pearl Hall Free · Visit online or call 277-3551 Vanessa Sanchez / Daily Lobo “Fiesta Jarabe,” by Luis Jiménez, reflects the artist’s Southwestern ideals. But some students said the statues in front of Popejoy Hall are not visually stunning.

‘Ugly’ statue conveys passion by Alexandra Swanberg Luis Jiménez’s gaudy, on-campus fiesta dancers have spurred unfavorable reactions from passersby, but their appearance is intended to portray Southwest working class members’ lives. Graduate student Eric Castillo is writing his thesis on the artist. He said Jimenéz’s career began in New York City, but he returned to the Southwest where he produced work that illustrated his vision of America. “A lot of it is archetypal, so like universal images that have meaning for a lot of people,” Castillo said. “He wanted to make sure that as many audiences as possible could relate to his work.” An internationally known artist, Jiménez grew up in El Paso, and his upbringing influenced his art work, said Reginald Richie, Jiménez’s friend. He

said Jiménez’s vibrant color use amplifies the statues’ attributes. “It’s a very beautiful piece, and his work is very skillful, very dramatic,” Richie said. “The scale is exaggerated and so were the features.” Jiménez died in 2006 after a piece of his sculpture fell and severed his femoral artery. Installed at UNM in 1996, “Fiesta Jarabe,” the dancing statues in front of Popejoy Hall, is inspired by Jiménez’s observations of dancers in Hondo, N.M. Delilah Montoya, a friend and former colleague, said the statues are a cultural hybrid, and Jimenéz wanted to create a piece that reconciled American and Mexican differences. “Because of his Mexican background, he wanted to work in the themes that he understood the best and could relate to,” she said. Student Serena Davidson said the statues aren’t visually appealing.

“I think it was a great idea, just to show the Hispanic population and culture we have, but the statues themselves are kind of ugly,” she said. Castillo said students think the statues are unattractive, but they change their mind when he explains Jiménez’s background and intentions. “His people and his images are mostly shapely people with a sort of gaudiness to them,” he said. “I mean, they just look worked. Their bodies look worked, and that comes back to his working-class aesthetic.” Richie said all of Jiménez’s work is meaningful, and he said the statues convey life’s beauty. “It’s the enjoyment of human life — the human sexuality, that’s really obvious,” he said. “The passion and the joy of life, beauty, and the human spirit. He was interested in life, the way life is lived.” And Jiménez died that way.

Hookah offers alternative nightlife for minors by Andrew Beale

Albuquerque has your hookah hookup. Because of rave-like atmospheres with live DJs, Albuquerque has seen an explosion in the number of city hookah lounges, Bubble Lounge manager Ahmad Al-Qasem said. “We used to have a big line in here,” he said. “Right now we have a lot of hookah lounges out this way.” Bubble Lounge employee Kirsten Brothers said most of their customers are under 21. She said she got a job at the establishment after frequenting the joint as a teenager. “I was in here all the time as a little teeny-bopper, so they hired me,” she said. Terrene Hookah co-owner Aaron Roth said hookah lounges have enjoyable atmospheres, and that’s what attracts

customers. He said Terrene doesn’t scout for bands, the acts come to them. “The atmosphere, the clientele that we have is a lot more laid-back,” he said. “We tend to have lower-volume music so people can talk to each other. And that’s how it should be.” Bobby Burdock, Terrene’s other co-owner, said the lounge draws a diverse crowd, not just under-21 patrons who can’t go to bars. “We get anybody from 50year-olds to 18, students to workers. All of ’em,” he said. “You get the club crowd; you get the relaxed crowd. We get everybody in here pretty much. The older crowd likes it because it’s not super-loud.” UNM student Mike Perino, 23, said he prefers newly opened Hookah Star to the Albuquerque bar scene. “I don’t really go to bars that often,” he said. “During the

summer, I’ll tend to go a bit more because the Rapid Ride runs late, but it’s hard to drive to a bar because I refuse to drink and drive. “(And) this is a great place because you can smoke cigarettes in here. It’s so nice to not have to go out in the frigid weather.” Terrene manager Jack Jacob said the establishment has one major advantage over other local hookah lounges. “We have something that nobody else has, which is food,” he said. “Nobody in Albuquerque can sell shisha with food. That’s what makes us different.” Still, many people support the hookah lounges for simpler reasons. Matt Salvio, a 19-year-old Bubble Lounge customer, said he goes to the hookah lounge because they have pool tables and he lives close by. Will he continue to come to the Bubble Lounge once he turns 21? “Probably not,” he said.
