How the LoboAlerts system works By Kyle Land

@kyleoftheland If you have been a student, staff member or faculty member at the University of New Mexico long enough, there is no doubt that you have received more than a fair share of LoboAlerts. Whether it concerns groping, robbery, assault or a myriad of other issues that require notification, LoboAlerts provide the information needed to keep the UNM campus safe and aware. But how does this system actually function? What is the process from the time an incident occurs to the moment students and faculty receive the text? There are those who feel the timeliness of alerts could be improved. The Daily Lobo recently received a letter to the editor, in which UNM staff member Brian Vineyard lamented about how LoboAlerts on certain crimes, specifically a robbery that occurred at Golden Pride, were received hours after the event took place. He also said he wondered why he received alerts by email faster than he did by text. “Something really needs to be done about the timeliness of (LoboAlerts), or lack thereof,” Vineyard wrote. There are many factors that can affect the time it takes to send an alert to the public, making each instance completely unique to all those that preceded it. The process of issuing a LoboAlert first begins when police dispatch sends an officer to the scene of the reported crime. From there, the of-

ficer will make a determination as to whether or not a LoboAlert is required, said Lt. Tim Stump of the University of New Mexico Police Department. “Every call is different, (therefore) every call is assessed differently,” Stump said. One major factor officers must consider is the nature of the crime committed and if the suspect involved still poses a potential risk to those on campus. UNMPD currently keeps a list of several crimes that require an alert, such as robbery, aggravated assault or hate crimes, he said. However, Stump made it clear that this list does not represent the totality of crimes that can qualify for a LoboAlert. “If a crime occurs that’s not on the list that we feel puts the campus in imminent danger, then we’ll send out an alert,” he said. Potential delays can also be caused due to a lack of concrete information. Once an officer obtains all the necessary information, however long that takes, then an alert can be sent out, he said. Once the incident is reported, UNMPD upper command will send out the alert, which can be received by text, email or on Twitter. As for why someone might receive the alert on one platform faster than another, UNM Emergency Manager Byron Piatt said it could relate to issues with the user’s cell phone, such as a low battery that causes the phone to receive texts at a slower rate. Piatt also said that whether or not a suspect’s ethnicity is included in an alert depends entirely upon if the vic-

tim disclosed that information in the police report. The quality of the LoboAlert system is maintained through tests made in conjunction with the campus’ warning siren. This test takes place three times a year, Piatt said. As for any possible changes to the system, both Piatt and Stump said they were satisfied with the current

format, citing examples of gropers and robbers that have been arrested as a result of the alerts. “Because students are aware… we’ve been able to apprehend suspects,” Stump said. “We believe it meets the necessity of getting the alerts out.” So, for now, the LoboAlert system will remain intact, ready to alert the

UNM population when need be — but hopefully not too often. Kyle Land is a news editor for the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at or on Twitter @kyleoftheland.

Int’l student enrollment Generosity is never out of season rate waxes and wanes COLUMN

By Elizabeth Sanchez @Beth_A_Sanchez

When the holiday season is in full swing, so is giving. But why can’t giving be something we do more of year round? Just last week, I was driving in Downtown Albuquerque and happened to notice quite a few tents and sleeping bags in the area — there’s something beautiful and symbolic and silently loud about the things people choose to carry when there is only so much they can own. It reminded me of the fundraisers, donation bins and meal preps that were abundant over the past two months. Awareness was abundant. Where did all the help go? It seems like I never hear talk about giving when the holidays are through. Every year, the “giving season” begins with Thanksgiving and ends after the first day of the year. Why can’t that same giving spirit be applied in the New Year? Maybe it’s just that everyone is in a giving mood during the holidays, or maybe it’s just that people who give don’t realize their gifts won’t last all year. Do people give during the holidays because they feel guilty or because everyone else is doing it? If

anything, people should be giving more when they know others are not. What troubles me more is the idea that some may simply not understand what it means to be homeless at all. In the past, people have told me that the homeless got themselves into their situation, are abusing drugs and alcohol intentionally or are simply too lazy to improve their circumstances. But how can someone say that when they haven’t sat down with that person?

International student enrollment rates at the University of New Mexico have experienced an ebb and flow over the past several years. According to the Global Education Office’s enrollment statistics, from 2012 to 2016 the amount of international students admitted to UNM increased from 1,060 students to 1,340 students. The increase in 2016 from previous years was only 0.64 percent, compared to 5.99 percent in 2015 and 19.85 percent in 2014. “Over the past three to five years, we have seen an increase in international student enrollment,” said Pablo Torres, director of International Recruitment and Admissions. According to the 2017 UNM Enrollment report, the percentage of international students at UNM has risen 80.9 percent since 2016, although the rate of change when comparing 2017 to the four years prior shows that enrollment has dropped by 9.26 percent. “In the past year we saw a decrease in our number of applicants, but the actual number of new international students who accepted admissions offers held relatively on par with the previous year,” Torres said. Nationally, international educators and international admissions offices are engaging in discussion about the potential factors that could be resulting in the drop of international student

enrollment rates, he said. Programs for hosting international students take into consideration what efforts will be effective in gaining greater enrollment, and GEO makes efforts to keep enrollment trends moving in a positive direction, Torres said. “Our staff and our international student ambassadors reach out directly to international applicants throughout the year,” he said. “We also engage with recruitment partners abroad to share information about the opportunities available at UNM for international students.” Competing against other Englishspeaking countries for international students may also be a factor in declining enrollment numbers. “Other English-speaking countries such as Canada, the U.K. and Australia have increased their international recruitment outreach efforts and incentives,” Torres said. “For example, Canada has eased their work visa application requirements for international students who graduate from Canadian universities.” Changes in political climate could be another factor in the fluctuating enrollment trends — in 2017, the GEO responded to anti-immigrant rhetoric by collaborating with the University’s Communications & Marketing department to create a video titled “#YouAreWelcomeHere.” This was an opportunity for the GEO to reach out to prospective

international students and offer a safe space for them to study and experience the culture, Torres said. “We make a strong effort to connect personally with each international applicant,” Torres said. “Personal safety, as well as a connection between the host university and the student, are both important factors in what international students take into consideration when traveling internationally for school.” Recently, the GEO has hired a new recruiter, who the office hopes will increase effectiveness of outreach approaches in the upcoming

semesters — some of the new efforts include “targeted recruitment efforts and improvements in ongoing communication with prospective students,” Torres said. The UNM Enrollment Management Department has introduced a Customer-Relationship Management System that will further help shape the approaches the GEO takes in reaching out to prospective international students. The GEO has faith that this system will positively affect international student enrollment rates, he said. Overall, international students seem to have great experiences as

UNM students, Torres said. “In general, we do find that most international students are happy with their experiences at UNM and the quality of life in Albuquerque,” Torres said. “We often hear from them that people in New Mexico are friendly and they feel welcome here.” Grace Chian-Huei Hsu is an international student from Taiwan currently studying at UNM. In Taiwan she studied music and accounting, but Hsu said her experience at UNM has helped guide her toward her dreams. “(My) days at UNM (were) full of surprising memories,” she said.

“Moreover, American (an) student’s life is different from Asians’ — we get (the) chance to deal with everything and live the life by ourselves.” Hsu said she was drawn to UNM by her interest in Hispanic culture. She initially wanted to attend school abroad in Spain but decided to come to UNM because it is so close to Mexico. Even though Hsu did not initially intend to come to UNM, she was able to find tranquility and learn more about herself. Hsu said her experience in New Mexico gave her a chance to understand American culture more than before.

“I learned about this place which (was) built by different kinds of people,” Hsu said. “The country, the history and the people gave me a brand new image of New Mexico.”

plenty of strength and resilience. He never intended to be homeless, but he was able to create a better life for himself and his son. Perhaps with even more tools, he would have been able to improve his life even faster. Struggling with mental health problems, domestic violence, job loss, loss of a home and a variety of other factors could correlate with

homelessness, according to the Homeless Hub website. The site goes on to say, “Homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked. People who are poor are frequently unable to pay for necessities such as housing, food, child care, health care and education. Being poor can mean a person is one illness, one accident or one paycheck away from living on the streets.”

Any one of us could find ourselves with nothing, but we can all find ourselves with something too. If you are in need or would like to help someone in need, the Good Shepherd Center, Joy Junction and Saint Martin’s Hopeworks (formerly Saint Martin’s Hospitality Center) are a few locations in Albuquerque that offer help to the homeless.

Student org supports women in STEM fields By Ariel Lutnesky @ArielLutnesky Discrimination can be difficult to overcome. This can be especially true for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematicsrelated fields. Ph.D. student Stephanie Fox, who studies evolutionary anthropology, is the president of the University of New Mexico’s Advancing Women in Science club, which is dedicated to fighting obstacles that women in science face. “Ultimately, we’d like a world where women are unequivocally treated equally to men in STEM fields,” Fox said. “We will keep fighting for that, but until then, we will try to equip women with the skills necessary to persist in STEM.” AWS accomplishes this through various activities that involve activism, outreach and mentorship. Sometimes

that means going to talk to elementary and high school students. Sometimes it means using social media as a platform for stating what AWS stands for and writing letters to the legislature. “We’ve put out statements on our Facebook page...regarding DACA and students being able to stay here,” said AWS Social Media Coordinator Erin WatsonChappell, who is working toward her Ph.D. in biology. Watson-Chappell said AWS is also concerned about education, particularly involving climate change and tax bills. “If you don’t have a good, solid understanding of science, you can’t really succeed,” Watson-Chappell said. In terms of their monthly meetings, the club discusses the readings — which are frequently themed — sent out to their members beforehand, she said. This month, the theme is all about developing strong selfesteem and confidence that

“The aim is to equip young women entering STEM with the skills and confidence they need to continue in their field,” Fox said of Saturday’s event. Students can RSVP for the event by Friday on the group’s Facebook page, UNM Advancing Women in Science. One of Fox’s favorite parts of AWS is the ability to encourage students, she said. “So often, women in STEM fields have a lot of self doubt and don’t see what others see in them,” Fox said. “It can make a big difference to reach out to someone and tell them what strengths you see. I also enjoy the learning curve that I’m riding. I get to learn how to be a better leader, how to be a better feminist, how to be a better listener and how to be a better change-maker, to name a few.” Fox and Watson-Chappell both said the club is open to anyone, no matter their gender, background or degree path. “Seeing so many diverse women doing so many amazing

does not come from the praise of others, Fox said. “I decided on this topic after thinking about how undergraduate and graduate students can experience such sharp highs when they receive a compliment from an advisor or a good grade — and experience sharp lows when there is a dearth of positive feedback,” she said. “It seems unhealthy to depend so heavily on others for confidence, so I am hoping we can learn more about techniques for establishing solid self-esteem.” Sometimes guest speakers and professors come to present during the club’s meetings. AWS also has events outside of the monthly meetings. Those events can involve watching films like “Hidden Figures” or connecting with people from the community who are involved in scientific pursuits, Watson-Chappell said. One of such events is coming up this Saturday and is called “She Persisted in STEM.”

things is really inspiring,” Watson-Chappell said. “For me to see them, I want to do more and be better, because they are doing more and being better.” Watson-Chappell added that AWS is a good opportunity to network, which opens opportunities that might not have been available otherwise. “I think that Advancing Women in Science is a valuable place for women to network, to meet each other and to build a community, because it can sometimes be difficult to succeed in science if you’re a woman,” Watson-Chappell said.

Daily Lobo alum shares 9/11 photography By Elizabeth Sanchez @Beth_A_Sanchez Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of alumni profiles of former Daily Lobo contributors in an effort to connect current readers and contributors to the past and present. Continue to follow the Daily Lobo for more. Photographer Rikki Reich’s most significant body of work to date is her Sept. 11 portfolio, “The Voice of the Silence,” which is included in the photographic collections in the Library of Congress Photographic Collection, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum. “The Voice of the Silence,” has never been exhibited in its entirety, she said. The work debuted at the AIPAD Photography Show in New York in 2012. But part of her journey began at the Daily Lobo. Reich was a staff photographer between 1983 and 1984, she said. “In those days we went out on assignment, came back to the Lobo offices...processed our film, made contact sheets...then showed them to the photo editor,” she said. “And with some luck and a good day...a photograph or two was selected to run in the next day's Daily Lobo. “Back then, print versions of the Daily Lobo ran Monday through Friday, so we were always on deadline. We were always in competition with each other regarding whose photograph got published as the lead on the front

page. It was how we evaluated our personal progress and success as budding photojournalists.” Reich recalled her favorite memories at the Daily Lobo. “I loved working in the darkroom with my fellow photo graphers...s omething magic happens locked in the intimacy of a tight, darkroom. The things we talked about, the craft of printing and the magic of photography lay in the the time we spent together,” she said. “This is what was lost with the onset of the Digital Revolution. Instant gratification eliminates the process. The process is where you learn about life, photography and each other but most importantly, it's where you discover your sense of self.” The Daily Lobo was also a learning experience for Reich. “I learned to see at the Daily Lobo,” she said. “How to anticipate a shot before it happened. To be invisible. To move faster than anyone else...honing my skills. “Being a woman helped. In a field riddled with insidious sexism I learned to use my gender as an asset. Female photojournalists are easily dismissed and not taken seriously. I learned to use sexism and my blond hair to my that, the more I wasn't taken seriously...the more I downplayed my skills... to be further underestimated. It allowed me to move more freely and not be seen as a threat to the Boy's Club that traditional photojournalism has always been. After all...what could a girl with a camera really do? “While the guys stood

around talking tech and camera equipment, I focused my attention on the history of photography. “I was a staff photographer at the Daily Lobo... fully engaged in photojournalism while also taking fine art photography studio classes in the Art Department and graduate-level photographic history and independent study courses. During this time I was introduced to the work of Garry Winogrand, Andres Serrano's ‘Piss Christ,’ Nan Goldin's ‘The Ballad of Sexual Dependency,’ Larry Clark's ‘Tulsa’ and Richard Avedon's ‘In the American West.’ I was interested in the intersection of photojournalism, documentary and fine art photography. I didn't want to limit myself or feel closed in by boundaries. “While at the Daily Lobo, all staff photographers had to attend a mandatory off-campus photojournalism workshop given by Jim Fisher, who went on to become a professor in the Communication Department at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. It was the crucial turning point. I can state definitively that the Daily Lobo and Jim Fisher's workshop single-handedly prepared me to photograph the frontline of history on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Without this training and these combined experiences, the photographs of the ‘The Voice of the Silence’ portfolio would not exist.” Michelle Delaney, former curator of photography at the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian,

Rikki Reich in New York in 2015. Rikki Reich © collected photography a year after Sept. 11. Generally, collecting historic photography happens many years after a historic event, but after Sept. 11, many curators mobilized and attempted to document what happened quickly, she said, adding Congress designated the Smithsonian as an early repository for collecting Sept. 11 objects and artifacts. Delaney found Reich’s work while searching the Internet for images for the collection. “Not only was (her work) in a fine art standard, but it was specifically something I hadn’t located previously, which was the marine evacuation in lower Manhattan…It was done in

incredibly beautiful black and white photography,” Delaney said. Delaney collected roughly 25 photographers’ work, including Reich’s, she said. When it came to Reich’s pieces, Delaney said, “The photographic quality, her perspective and lens on that tragic day when the towers were hit and were coming down, it was something that was different and also work that I knew from getting to know her. (It) was a quality that would fit well within the history of photography section.” Photo strategist at Dancing Bear W.M. Hunt said he has been a dealer, collector, writer,

opinion editor /

LETTERS The will of the people is manipulated by the elite Editor, Nikki Haley’s reaction to the U.N. resolution in opposition to Donald Trump’s infamous Jerusalem decision is symptomatic of the U.S. disdain for real democracy. With an overwhelming majority of 128 to 9, the General Assembly defied the threats of retaliation by the U.S. government and decided to give peace a chance and keep the Jerusalem question open. The U.S. American administration could bring only eight satellite states into line. Autocrats routinely couch their lies in a Royal We. Thus, in stubborn defiance to the U.N., the U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley, insisted, “America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. That is what the American people want us to do. And it is the right thing to do...The president’s decision reflects the will of the American people.” Everything Haley said is wrong. Sixty-one percent of people polled in the U.S. — and virtually the rest of the world along with

them — oppose Mr. Trump’s irresponsible decision. They understand, to declare Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel is a declaration of war against the Palestinian people who have lived in a state of war, through military occupation, deadly siege and brutal assault, during the last 50 years. All Trump has “achieved,” is more strife and bloodshed of the innocent and the defenseless. None of Trump’s autocratic decrees have the support of the American people. Mr. Trump is an “absolute minority president.” Despite his perverse media (un)popularity, he has never had substantial majority support. He occupies the White House in violation of core democratic principles, which are deliberately disabled in the U.S. political system. With no proportional representation at work in Congress, the complexity of the people’s political will, does not have any systemic reflection anywhere where it could and would speak constructively and effectively. Consequently, its pertinent reflection is coerced into the streets where the

repression continues. Currently, some 200 Trump-inauguration protesters face more than 50 years in prison. Whenever members of this government hedge their statements in phrases about the “wish” and “will” of the American people, a lie is about to be spoken, held up as a human shield in yet another deadly assault against the people. The manufactured majority, voterroll-purged and gerrymandered, knows, it is illegitimate, which is why and how it imposes its corporate will over and against the American public. Hence, the people’s right to proper health care, clean air, water and energy, quality education and political participation is under constant attack. With the exclusion of the factual majority, these rights survive as exclusive privileges for the rich only. If Washington’s politicians get all the health care needed, the same level of care ought to apply to everyone in the U.S. What is good for the top, the least ought to get as well. Instead, medical treatment delayed or rejected continues to

kill the sick. Homeless poor perish in the streets. Polluted waters sicken citizens, most fatally in Flint, Houston and Puerto Rico. Those in plight are most deprived of their right to basic education. Faced with such fateful polarization between a dictatorial government and a hapless people, one may openly wonder how the poetic words of Marxist playwright Bertolt Brecht ring true also today: “Nur die allerdümmsten Kälber/ wählen ihren Schlächter selber.” “Only the most stupid of all the dull cattle/elect their own butchers in political battle.” America’s rigged Dollar Democracy finds substantial support in an ill- and un(der) informed minority lured into ideological traps to be leveled to pawns in a cruel, political game. Bob Dylan sings about that in a memorable song. Subconsciously suspicious of its political ignorance, the country prefers silence and violence to peaceful, constructive discourse, thus stifling the real possibility of a most needed flourishing political culture.

Consequently, this country would still and will kill its prophets again, should they rise up to threaten the rules of the game. At least in one sense the national nonsense even makes sense: we are all equal — equally free to be killed…by fate or hate, predictable and prescribed. Thus, as the country pretends to unite in celebration of the prophetic voice that condemns the idolatrous trinity of racism, militarism and materialism (consumerism), it will continue to lurch on worshipping these idols to its total demise. Those who recently drowned in the floods, burnt in the fires and lie buried in the mud urgently warn us. In the clandestine transparency of today’s national hypocrisy where all are free to choose their own kind of commemoration, everyone can easily guess who celebrates the life and who the death of the prophet.

She likes looking at photographs, and you see her out and about at any number of openings. I appreciate that.” Reich asked Hunt to make a studio visit for her Sept. 11 work, he said, calling the photographs memorable and saying he felt they were unique, because “she stuck with it, it’s a whole series, so it has a strong time-lapse aspect.” “Rikki’s a great character,” Hunt said. “She’s not a wilting, shy rose. She’s got stuff to say, and I like that. She’s got spirit. One of the things that is wonderful about her spirit is, it is overwhelmingly positive.” Delany echoed this positivity, as she said, “I was very happy that (Rikki Reich) was interested in working with me and interested in donating to the Smithsonian, because that was a labor of love for all of us to work on this, as well as professional duty to work on 9/11. So, Rikki and her willingness to partner with me and talk through her whole concept for...‘The Voice of the Silence,’ and also painstaking time she spent in the dark room…getting those prints just right, I knew she was serious and long-term for developing her portfolio.

“Lady Bird” ends 2017 in style


By Hector Valverede

to serve the




With releases such as “Spiderman: Homecoming,” “IT” and now capped off with “Lady Bird,” 2017 was a great year for coming-of-age films. In particular, “Lady Bird” has been receiving copious amounts of awards buzz, ranging from supporting to lead role nominations while garnering screenplay and directorial plaudits as well. It even held a 100 percent fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes for a solid while, breaking a record not matched since 1999’s “Toy Story 2.” The film follows Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson’s senior year at a Catholic high school in Sacramento with all the ups and downs that entails. Lady Bird falls in love, fights with her mom and struggles her way into her dream university far away from home. The story isn’t particularly new or innovative, but it feels special all the same. “Lady Bird” is effortlessly authentic and relatable, which is mostly owed to Greta Gerwig’s excellent script and direction. Gerwig captures the essence of being a teenager to a tee, perfectly sprinkling moments of levity and drama evenly throughout. Most will find something to relate to, whether it’s arguing with your parents, toggling friendships and interests or just looking for acceptance somewhere, anywhere. The film is also paced remarkably well, reminding me of a brisk late afternoon stroll. Scenes never carry on for too long, plotlines come and go, but every moment counts. It’s a very pleasant experience all around. As Lady Bird’s journey is rife with moments of immaturity and teenage decision-making, it would be easy for her to come across as unlikable. However, Saoirse Ronan plays Lady Bird with such genuine affect that this is never the case. Her many mistakes are easy to forgive, because you’re always with her, especially if you’ve been a teen in her shoes before. There’s no doubt Ronan will be the buzz of the awards season soon enough.

as Lady Bird’s mother is also equally great. Metcalf matches Ronan at every beat with simultaneous hits of stern motherly discipline and tenderness. There have been few performances this year that could even begin to approach the duo’s chemistry together. I really have no gripes with “Lady Bird.” I’m not sure how much staying power the film will have in the far future, but it’s certainly one of the best coming-of-age films I’ve seen in recent memory. It’s a strong recommend, not

only for those anticipating awards season, but anyone who’s been a teenager looking to reminisce. A+ Hector Valverede is a culture reporter with the Daily Lobo. He primarily writes movie reviews. He can be contacted at culture@dailylobo. com or on Twitter @hpvalverde.

Gov. Martinez delivers address, despite disruptions By Austin Tyra @AustinATyra Gov. Susana Martinez opened the 30-day New Mexico legislative session Tuesday with her last State of the State address before her second term comes to an end — but she was interrupted by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals activists who unrolled banners and chanted, “Undocumented, unafraid.” New Mexican Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich recently voted against the congressional DREAM Act, despite both men previously speaking in support of the resolution. “New Mexicans were certain that our senators would do the right thing,” New Mexico Indivisible Congress said in a press release. “So we were horrified to watch them vote against DREAMers. Their votes are wholly inconsistent with their rhetoric and signify to their grassroots base an inconsistency in the values New Mexico represents.” Amid Tuesday’s protest, order was eventually restored within the legislative sessions, and protesters were told they must take down their banners and cease their interruptions or they would be escorted out of the building by security. Martinez did not respond to the demonstration as it occurred, nor did she mention DACA in her address. Instead, she began her speech by acknowledging the economic progress that New Mexico has recently enjoyed and the unpropitious events of 2017 that

have to be overcome. Last year, due to a decrease in the price of oil, New Mexico’s budget was expected to fall short by $600 million. However, Martinez said New Mexicans responded correctly to the adversity, and

“Education and crime: one creates opportunities, the other stifles them. One helps children realize their dreams, and the other can snuff them out.” Gov. Susana Martinez rather than relying on the “flimsy crutch of the federal government, we set a new course and chose to diversify our economy instead.” As a result, the budget is currently reporting a $300 million surplus while New Mexico has climbed to the No. 7 ranking in terms of national economic growth. “Wages are up, per capita income is up and as people look for work again and find jobs, our unemployment rate is declining,” Martinez said. Martinez also cited a sixpoint plan that she said she believed would continue to aid local business, as well as benefit

taxpayers. The plan includes action items, such as reforming the tax code so that it would be easier for businesses to operate within New Mexico while also investing in new startups that have the potential to supply many jobs. The governor dedicated the rest of her address to discussing crime and education. “Education and crime: one creates opportunities, the other stifles them. One helps children realize their dreams, and the other can snuff them out,” she said. Regarding the concern of crime, Martinez spoke in favor of

stricter punishments in all areas, including possibly reinstating the death penalty for capital crimes. She also advocated for technological advancements in police departments, as well as salary increases for local officers, in order to incentivize a strong police force while also cutting back on crime. Education, however, was an example of mixed successes. Martinez cited improvements in reading efficiency saying, “Nearly 8,000 more students are reading on grade level. 32,000 more kids — more than ever before — are attending an ‘A’ or ‘B’ school.”

Schools in Albuquerque have not enjoyed the same success. “The number of ‘F’ schools, for example, has tripled in Albuquerque — to nearly 1 in 3 schools — and the Albuquerque Public Schools’ graduation rate is nearly nine percentage points lower than the statewide average,” Martinez said.

A Three-Mover (Level 4) By Eddie Wyckoff

White to move and mate in 3. “Three-mover” has a specific connotation. While the term can describe any mate in 3, it generally refers to mates in 3 where the defending side has seemingly ample resources to defend. Be careful to avoid capturing the Black queen! That would be stalemate (a draw). Hints: no check is delivered on the first two moves; White’s first move forces a single Black response to delay mate. Solution to last puzzle: 1.Qg6+! Kxg6 (1. ... Kh8 2.Qh5#) 2.Bg8 (any) 3.f5# Want to learn how to read this? Visit 1/18/18
