Fair: Food can be used as a peace weapon by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo

Vanessa Sanchez / Daily Lobo UNM students and local renegades show off their flavor savers. Mustachio Bashio happens Friday at the DoubleTree. If you don’t have a mustache, they will give you one at the door.

I know where you keep your ‘stache by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo

Like body hair, Mustachio Bashio has grown over the years. Dominic Abbott is one of the organizers for Friday’s party and said that each year the bash is bigger and better. “It’s about putting your inhibitions aside, both men and women and letting the mustache shine,” he said. “If you don’t have a mustache, you’ll get one at the door.” This year the party is at the Doubletree Hotel and they’ll have bands, DJs and beer. “This year we’re bringing in two bands, Lost Lingo and the Squash Blossom Boys, as well as bringing in DJ Dizzan and DJ Click Click Bang,” he said. “This year there will be a mustache competition, and if they want to be in the

competition they have to get there a little early to sign up.” The mustache competition has different categories people of both genders are encouraged to sign up for, he said. “The categories are Best in Show, the Bearded Lady, the Dirty Sanchez and more — I can’t give them all away,” Abbott said. Andrew Hannington, an avid mustache grower, said he has had his mustache since he was 15. “I trim it, you know, whenever you get boogers stuck in it or bits of clam chowder,” Hannington said. He said he has had mustache mishaps in his past, but he still likes the look. “It blew my face up in a tar kettle,” he said. “Definitely when I set fire to it was the most traumatizing. A tar kettle is used for roofing, and it has two huge propane burners inside of it. When I asked if I could light it no one warned

It was, in fact, a bomb. I put my head in it, lit the match and lost all the hair on my face.” The pros of a mustache outweigh the task of maintaining one, he said. “It’s extraordinarily sexy,” he said. “It’s a very sexy mustache.”

A new assessment will determine how UNM students measure up to their peers at other institutions. A group of randomly selected graduating seniors will receive emails through April 15 that invite then to participate in the Collegiate Learning Assessment. After this academic year, at least 250 randomly selected first-semester freshmen and 250 graduating seniors can also choose to participate. “The CLA is a measure of student learning in critical thinking, problem solving, analytical and English writing,” said Tom Root, outcomes assessment planning manager at the Office

of the Provost. UNM is participating in the Voluntary System of Accountability, where universities are required to measure education outcomes, Root said. About 400 other universities nationwide, including other public New Mexico universities, are also participating. This is the first time UNM has tried to measure the learning progress of undergraduate students, Root said. Students will have 90 minutes to complete two to nine short essays online in a proctored setting, said Amy Korzekwa, graduate research assistant for the CLA project. The program determines the amount of short essays students will complete from a variety of questions. “All of the prompts are supposed

to be real-world kind of topics that involve some kind of critical thinking and problem solving,” Korzekwa said. Participants will be compensated for their time. Freshmen participants will be entered into a raffle, receive a UNM shirt, UNM food service discount coupons, UNM Bookstore coupons and priority registration. Seniors will receive the same benefits with a week of free parking in any zone instead of priority registration, Korzekwa said. During September and October, 256 entering freshmen answered the essays. As of yet, 70 seniors participated in the questions. Kara Hermanns, freshman, said the rewards she received for filling out

Students danced and practiced yoga for peace in the SUB Wednesday. The fifth annual UNM Peace Fair, held in the SUB, featured performances and about 25 Albuquerque organizations presented ideas about peace. “As part of the Peace Studies program, students do an internship,” said Les Field, director of the Peace Studies program. “This was their internship project this semester. We got the ball rolling, and then the students organized it.” Simon Ejdemyr, a Peace Studies student, said the fair was organized around two principles. “The first step was brainstorming what theme we wanted,” he said. “We focused on two: religion and peace and food and peace.” There were two panel

Especially in the economy now it would make sense for them to raise their prices to be able to still support the children, but they haven’t, so I thought it was important to help them out.” Issac Casas, Omega Delta Phi alumnus, said the event allows accomplished UNM women to be recognized for their achievements.

news in brief

Boys Scouts leaders face child molestation charges PORTLAND, Ore.— A psychologist testifying in a $14 million lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America says the organization put boys at risk by hiding information about child molesters among troop leaders. Gary Schoener, a national expert on child sex abuse, told a Multnomah County Circuit Court jury in Portland on Wednesday that confidential files the Boy Scouts kept on suspected abusers from 1965-1984 were the deepest and most complete information about pedophiles then available in the country. He said the organization showed a reckless indifference by not sharing the information with parents and authorities. Attorneys for the Boy Scouts of America say the organization kept files on suspected molesters to protect children.

Diabetic girl dies, parents charged with murder RIVERSIDE, Calif.— The parents of a Southern California girl who slipped into a diabetic coma and died have been convicted of second-degree murder. Gregory and Yvonne Latham also were each found guilty Wednesday of felony willful child endangerment. Seventeen-year-old Nanette Latham was found unresponsive

in the family’s squalid mobile home in Cabazon in 2006. A prosecutor said the girl spent the last four days of her life starving and in a mental fog, wearing a wet diaper, because her parents didn’t call paramedics. They finally called 911 after she stopped breathing. Defense attorneys argued that the girl’s parents tried their best to care for her and thought she had the flu. Each faces 15 years to life in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for April 30.

Cash-strapped Octomom paid to display Peta sign LOS ANGELES— Just because Nadya Suleman’s an octomom doesn’t mean she wants your dog or cat to become one, too. Her lawyer said Wednesday that Suleman, who is fighting to keep her house from foreclosure, has agreed to allow People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals to put a sign in her front yard proclaiming, “Don’t Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter.” Peta says it offered Suleman $5,000 and a month’s supply of veggie burgers and hot dogs in exchange for placing the sign in front of her house in La Habra. Suleman’s lawyer, Jeff Czech, said his client has accepted the offer. Meanwhile, Czech said, he is negotiating to refinance a $450,000 balloon payment on her home that was due two weeks ago.

the CLA in the fall adequately compensated for her time spent on it. “The incentives were definitely worth it, and so was expressing my opinion,” she said. “The test was fun and made you think about issues and answer in a detailed essay.” Root said the test measures skills necessary for any major. “It doesn’t matter if you are getting a Bachelor’s of Art in English or a Bachelor’s of Science in engineering — everybody needs those skills,” Root said. The data collected will be posted on schools’ home pages to help prospective students choose which universities to attend, Korzekwa said. UNM chose from three types of tests measuring its outcomes. Faculty chose the CLA because it wasn’t multiple-choice, and it did a better job of measuring the four areas, Root said. “The CLA is a constructed-

response test, which means you are given an open-ended, loosely defined problem,” Root said. “You are given a set of resource materials that you might use to solve the problem, and then asked how you would solve it.” With the data collected, UNM will compare how students’ skills improve over the course of their studies and how these skills correlate with graduation, Root said. “We are hoping to see a difference between freshmen and seniors and hopefully attribute some of that difference to the fact that they’ve been here at UNM,” Korzekwa said.

From the web In “Bill could make U.S. unrecognizable socialists,” published Wednesday, author Andres Saenz expressed concerns about the new health care legislation that been passed Tuesday. by ‘David Wilson’ Posted Wednesday “This shows a remarkable misunderstanding of the word ‘socialism.’ Socialism is a system where the government assumes ownership of the means of production — factories, banks, businesses — and then controls access to them. In the case of the so-called health care bill, the government has mandated that every citizen buy insurance from a privately-owned company. In fact, the  GOP  and a number of state attorney generals are suing on this very basis — that you cannot force people to buy from a private company. In other words, we have a position where the elected government is pushing corporatism, and the Republicans are opposing it.” by ‘Wingnut’ Posted Wednesday “Readers, there is another type of socialism that outlaws money, ownership and inequality. You can call it  pure  socialism if you like. It is the practice of not using economies/ownership (therefore it is  not  an ‘economic system’). It is the system that all nonhuman living things use, worldwide. Money and ownership are man-made-up things. Economies are herd-control devices. Economies are a railroading into a central corporation, imperialism, empire. That’s why we see no competitive practices or flexibility allowed in selecting  which  type of money is used. The only survival coupons that are ‘legal tender’ in the U.S. are AmWay (American Way) papers with the Illuminati/Free Mason pyramid scheme symbol on the back of the one dollar bill. Would you rather label economy-less and ownership-less social systems as ‘communalism?’ Works for me. The USA military supply and survival system and the public library system both use this type of socialism. And if you can’t get the railroaded and bandwagon ‘ownership monkey’ off your back, you can say that military supplies and library books are owned by ‘team’ or by all of mankind. That’s why in both the military and in the  U.S.  public library system, items are ‘checked out’ of the repository and the person becomes temporary ‘custodian’ of those items. Custodianship is substantially different from ownership. Study these two excellent socialist/communalist institutions to learn more about the other socialism. They’re not so scary, are they? Socialism is a  good  thing, a Christian altruist thing, and sure not something to be feared.” Join the discussion at DailyLobo.com

Column

Mitchell upgrades are a good start by Chris Sosa

Daily Lobo Guest Columnist If you have been to Mitchell Hall recently, you probably have been amazed by how much the renovation has improved the building. The first thing that most students have noticed is that Mitchell’s infamous sewage stench is gone. The building also feels more comfortable with its improved heating and cooling system. New amenities such as an Outtakes store and a computer pod have been added. Also, a brandnew KONE EcoSpace machine room-less traction elevator has been installed, replacing the existing hydraulic elevator. The KONE EcoSpace uses one-third as much energy as a hydraulic elevator and doesn’t use any oil. The one installed at Mitchell Hall has a capacity of 2,500 lbs, an increase of 1,000 lbs compared to the previous elevator to increase accessibility. It also has a voice annunciation feature that announces the floors the elevator stops at and the direction of travel. Mitchell Hall has been awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver certification for ecofriendliness. There are three other buildings that are getting renovations. One of them is the old Architecture building, which will soon house the

Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media program after its completion, and another is Tamarind Institute.  Elevators (also of the KONE EcoSpace model) are being added to both buildings, and the goal for the Tamarind Institute is to achieve at least a LEED silver certification. Also slated to undergo renovations is UNM’s oldest building, Hodgin Hall, however, the renovations for Hodgin Hall will mostly be minor due to its listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Renovations have also been proposed for two buildings: Ortega Hall and the Riebsomer Wing of Clark Hall. Plans are not official and no specifics of their planned renovations have been released to the public yet. You may have been to some other buildings that are not in good shape. Marron Hall, the building where the Daily Lobo itself is published, is one of those. This building was built in 1931. The building does not have a very good cooling system, making it quite hot in the summer. The bathrooms are in very bad shape, especially the men’s restroom on the second floor. The building is inaccessible, requiring people in wheelchairs to enter the building from the rear entrance. It does not have an elevator for those with a physical disability to get to the second floor. If funding does

become available, these concerns should be addressed with the building, including installing a new energy-efficient heating and cooling system, new bathrooms, new windows and a new elevator (preferably an MRL traction elevator such as the KONE EcoSpace, ThyssenKrupp Synergy, Otis Gen2, or Schindler 400A). Another building that may be able to use a renovation is Northrop Hall. Northrop Hall was built in 1953, three years after the construction of Mitchell Hall.  As with Mitchell Hall, Northrop Hall could use an improved heating and cooling system and new bathrooms and windows.  However, the elevator at Northrop Hall is in very bad shape. The ride of the elevator is jerky, and the rear door presently doesn’t serve any function. This elevator should be replaced soon, preferably by an MRL traction elevator. One building that can use a minor renovation is the Farris Engineering Center. While not in extremely bad shape, Farris could at least use improved bathrooms and a new elevator. While there probably isn’t enough funding for such projects at this time, renovations of these buildings should at least be considered, and once funding becomes available, it should probably be done soon.

Please pardon homeless son and guide him toward help Editor, With humility I am writing this letter to express deep sincere regret of the situation involving my son Arnold Woods. It was a shock for me to learn that he had been setting up residency in the Fine Arts building just a few blocks from where I reside on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Tijeras Avenues northeast. Since the culmination of a streak of adversities for Arnold, I have been waging a search for him, originating in Lakeland, Fla. in March 2008 and ending here on March 8, after hearing KOB television’s 6 o’clock newscast. He has been homeless and on the move for two years. Since the circumstances surrounding this

tragic juncture in Arnold’s life are the result of personal family dynamics, I was not aware that my son was suffering with my inability to come to his rescue morally, spiritually and financially. He has a brother, Allan, who could have given him support as well, although Allan has undergone openheart surgery in 2007 and 2009, accompanied by strokes, severe blood infections and diabetes. He has been hospitalized in California since May 2009, and a discharge date has not yet been set due to breathing problems, inability to speak without difficulty and a fluctuating blood pressure level. Please know that I am very sorry that Arnold placed you in a precarious position when you didn’t know who he was or the nature of his physiological and mental health ailments. He was diagnosed with ADD by a UNM doctor in 1994; his paranoia emerged shortly

before he left for Saudi Arabia. I am now 75 years of age, living in an assisted living facility; a post-stroke patient with other debilitating diseases. Still, the concern that I have for my son inspires me on in my quest for obtaining effective care for him. Arnold is a 1982 graduate of the University of New Mexico, and has enjoyed obtaining high-level jobs. But his mental defects proliferated before and after his return from Saudi Arabia in 1997. Please be kind enough to steer him toward UNM Mental Health Center on Marble Avenue Northeast. I don’t believe he is a threat to any of you, but we can’t take his condition for granted. I appreciate the fact that he had a safe sanctuary these past months due to the compassion of the UNM Police Department.

is important to recognize the people who make this event possible and safe for all the athletes. With the rise in athletic injuries, athletic trainers play a major role in upkeeping the sanctity of athletic events. A large number of students have been following March Madness and root for their favorite basketball teams. They don’t think much

about those on the sidelines, especially the athletic trainers. Athletic trainers’ No. 1 goal is to prevent injuries, and this helps lead teams to victory. For more information on athletic training, visit www.Nata.org.

discussions at the event, corresponding to the themes. The religion and peace panel featured Albuquerque religious leaders, while the food and peace panel featured Keith McHenry, founder of Food Not Bombs, and Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino. Ortiz y Pino said one of the most important issues regarding food in New Mexico is the availability of food stamps. “People, because of the economic recession, have had to find alternate ways of feeding their families — especially using what used to be called food stamps — and now we call it SNAP,” he said. “If we could get participation levels (of SNAP) up to where they need to be, that would be a huge step to reducing hunger.” Ortiz y Pino said a challenge facing the food stamp program is how to make more people aware of the benefits of it. “A lot of it has to do with getting information to people,” he said. “We’ve stigmatized the use of food stamps, so people are reluctant to use them.” Travis McKenzie, a student

working to start community gardens at UNM, also spoke on the panel. He said a major problem with the foodsupply chain is the use of petroleum products in food production. “We’re being attacked by a petroleum-based food-production system,” he said. “I feel that food production is different than agriculture. … Agriculture is community-based. Our food-production system is not community-based at all.” McKenzie said the best way to promote peace is to hold events like the Peace Fair. “I feel like we’re the response. This is the response. This circle, coming together, talking,” he said. Robert Staszewski, co-organizer of the fair, said food issues are important to New Mexico because we have a lot of available land that could be used for farming. “New Mexico has the ability to be a fully sustainable agricultural state. We can feed everybody,” he said. “Food is a weapon, for or against peace. And we have the ability to use that weapon in New Mexico.” McHenry said food is

important to peace because people will fight if they don’t have it. He said the U.S. throws out much of the food it produces, and many of the world’s problems could be solved if that food were redistributed instead. “Forty-five percent of the food raised in our country is thrown away. Studies have shown that if all the food that was thrown away in the world was redistributed to people who needed it, there would be no more hunger,” he said. McHenry said the U.S. is dangerously low on stored food supplies. “The Department of Agriculture claims we only have 53 days of food stored at any given time in this country. We are standing on the edge of a precipice,” he said. Desi Brown, Peace Studies program adviser, said the event was a success, but he wished it could have been held outside. “We’ve been wanting to do it outdoors for several years, and we actually did it this year, but there was a snowstorm,” he said. “I think we would’ve had a lot of students hanging out in the sun.”

is just kind of an extra part that we add on to it for the girls. They want to have fun, and just want to be a part of it.” Henry said she enjoyed the experience and thinks highly of her fellow contestants. “It was surprising, but I am really excited,” she said. “All the contestants were all really great girls so it was kind of surprising.” Positive events such as the pageant help show the often overlooked philanthropic aspect of

Greek life, Social Chair Robert Vigil said. “Things like this show the University what we are all about. It is important because it helps get rid of the stereotype of fraternities and sororities,” he said. “A lot of dues go towards events like this so we can get word out of our name and also to get these ladies out there and the charities more money.” Zoila Alvarez was the second runner up and the first runner up was Yagazie Emezi.

Daniel Hulsbos / Daily Lobo Parkour runner Zackery Wright leaps over a stairwell near Johnson Gym on March 7. Wright has done parkour for more than three years.

by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo

— Some people can do a back flip, others a front flip, but the majority of the population would be hard-pressed to do a front flip over a 10-foot gap. Yet that acrobatic feat, combined with leaps, vaults and wall climbing is commonplace in UNM’s parkour community. Camilo Brokaw, the head of the group and a self-described “Urban Tarzan,” said the group challenges the mainstream thought process concerning walls. “We put up all these walls, literally and figuratively in our culture, and what parkour does is it gives a chance to push upon those walls,” Brokaw said. “To see where

those boundaries actually are — for yourself and for your environment. And that as a form of self expression and exploration is what holds people to it.” Sunday, March 7 Today is a beginner’s day. On the northwest end of Johnson Field, hesitant newbies stand stiffly while the accomplished parkour participants clad in loose pants and tank tops warm up with back and front flips. Brokaw said people are often drawn to the sport based on the stunts seen in movies or YouTube videos. The purpose of today’s session is to help new runners understand the world of parkour. “I think philosophically, what parkour

Daniel Hulsbos / Daily Lobo Kenny Sullivan back flips off a wall near the Student Health Center

allows for, and sometimes it takes years for people to start to realize this, is it is a freedom,” he said while watching others flip. “And it’s a freedom we kind of outgrow when we get older. When you’re a kid you have to be told to not climb on that, don’t jump off of that. You’re not even being a daredevil. You’re exploring your surroundings, you’re exploring your world, and at some point it becomes socially frowned upon to pursue that. What we do in parkour is we just try to remember.” Around 10 a.m., they decide it’s time to go and sprint down an alley between Johnson Center and the Olympic Pool. They transcend flights of stairs in a single lunge and leap over railings with hardly more than a glance. The group arrives at the plaza

between Johnson Gym and Popejoy, where it splits up based upon experience. Brokaw commands a group of new runners jumping up and down on a concrete pillar, another practices leaping from the wall surrounding the Student Health Center to the pavilion below, and another flips across an out-of-sight stairwell attached to the gym. Occasionally, someone misses a jump and lands hard on his feet, or another might botch a flip attempt in midair. An extreme case results in one of the runners landing on his butt after failing to clear a gap. The group seems to take these injuries in stride, always asking if the injured runner was alright but quickly returning to their own flips and leaps.

Nate Moore, a former gymnast and current stunt man for such films as “Transformers” and the most recent “Terminator,” embodies the destructive nature of the sport. “I got a concussion and then a paramedic missed my vein and popped the blood apparently,” he said while motioning to a swollen purple bruise along his left forearm. He then points to a long, faded scar along the back of his neck. “And this one was a broken neck,” he said. Despite the injuries, Moore cannot stay away from the sport. “Once you get hurt, you’re like, ‘Aww why am I doing this?’ And then you get back up and you can’t wait to start up again,” he said, before returning to launching over walls.

The rest of the runners appear in better shape. No scars cover their arms or legs, although some might sit out to prevent further injury. Brokaw said the experience is different for everyone. “I know people who do parkour for four or five years and never get hurt,” he said. “I have never gotten hurt as badly or as many times as Nate has, and I have been doing parkour more than three times as long. It really depends on who you are and your personality. Some people are going to be daredevils. You’re also going to get people for whom it’s not about that. They’re doing parkour for the movement, and with those people you’re not as likely to get hurt as someone who’s always pushing themselves for bigger and better things.” As the day passes, passersby stop and watch the group running

“Most people express it as art,” Sullivan said. “It’s just the way they do things. I guess spectators, when they see it — it’s just like when you’re a kid going to the circus. You see something, it amazes you and you film it. The people doing it, they just love doing it. It’s not really a showboating thing. A crowd gets you hyped, so you’re just like, ‘I can do this, I can do that. I like being known and showing that I have skill.’”
