Lobos win third straight conference game By Robert Maler @Robert_Maler

The University of New Mexico men's basketball team has an opportunity to even up its overall record as it hosts Colorado State at Dreamstyle Arena on Saturday. The Lobos (10-11, 5-3 MW) hasn't enjoyed a .500 record since the early stages of the season. A 7956 loss at the hands of New Mexico State on Nov. 17 dropped UNM to 2-1 at the time and was the first of a four-game losing streak. But New Mexico has seemed to find its groove—winning four of its last five matchups and playing into the top half of the Mountain West standings, where the team is currently in a three-team tie for third place. UNM head coach Paul Weir said sometimes the hardest games are ones that follow an emotional win—and last Saturday's win over San Diego State probably fits that criteria. New Mexico overcame a 13-point deficit to complete a 79-75 victory over the Aztecs and rallied to beat UNLV in the previous game after trailing by double digits late in the second half. Weir said the Lobos have won some games in which many may

UNM kicks off Black History Month LoboCard name change process is now easier By Rebecca Brusseau @r_brusseau

By Rebecca Brusseau

On Jan. 27, the University of New Mexico Africana Studies Program collaborated with African American Student Services to hold the 33rd Annual Black History Month Kick-Off Brunch. Speakers from the Africana Studies Program and Interim Provost Richard L. Wood attended the brunch and gave speeches addressing their ideas on the importance of the event. A representative spoke on behalf of Interim President Chaouki Abdallah. “Celebrating Black History Month allows us to nurture relationships within the University, in the New Mexico community and internationally,” Abdallah’s representative said. “These relationships can help move us forward in various ways.” Being that this event was the 33rd consecutive recognition of Black History Month at UNM, the speeches often aimed to address why this event holds importance. Speeches also included information on the challenge of maintaining love for one’s culture in a community with oppressive tendencies. “The recognition of Black

History Month often covers up what is resistance against African Americans and their ways of life,” Abdallah’s representative said. “Part of the struggle is to remain true to one’s deep insight.” This event featured many speeches from the community and the Africana Studies Program, as well as the keynote speaker, Dr. Corey D.B. Walker.

The brunch concluded with a song performed by 14-year-old vocalist Chloe Nixon. Walker is the vice president and dean of the Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology and a professor of religion and society at Virginia Union University. His talk, “The Challenge of Blackness:

This month, the LoboCard office of the University of New Mexico implemented changes to policies regarding individual names on an ID. The new policy allows students, staff and faculty to change the name shown on their LoboCard to better reflect one’s preferred identity, which was previously restricted. This change has been pushed by LGBTQ+ community members, and it can benefit many people. Janice Devereaux of the LGBTQ Resource Center has been one of the key players in creating the LoboCard preferred name change. She has collaborated with UNM IT and the LoboCard office to facilitate this change. This change will also help prevent people in the transgender community from feeling targeted in a classroom setting. “The problems arose when the name that was announced in class did not match the name that was on their LoboCard,” Devereaux said. “Outing” — having someone’s

sexuality exposed without consent — is a potentially dangerous situation many transgender individuals face in new situations. “Our students are the reason we’re here, and this change allows safety for our trans students who don’t access higher education at equal rates to others,” Devereaux said. “It’s a safety issue to have a student outed in a big class when that’s not what the student is in class for.” This has also been an issue in the past, as students have been reprimanded for academic dishonesty when identifying as a different name than what is labeled on their Lobo ID, she said. “It’s not (a) hyperbole to say that this is also suicide prevention,” Devereaux said. “Little things like this help the trans community to stick around.” These issues indicated changes needed to be made, she said. “Just because many schools are (making this change) does not mean there’s only one path to going about this change,” Devereaux said. “The University of Vermont completely changed the coding of their system, but that wasn’t feasible for us here.”

not have given them much of a chance and the recent success might shift the expectations fans and others have for the team moving forward. But Weir said the team must continue to approach games in the same consistent manner. So now is not the time to take the proverbial foot off the gas. "We have to stay hungry and we have to stay desperate and we have to do everything we’ve done to get ourselves to this point," the head coach said. "We have to continue to do this the rest of the way." Colorado State (10-12, 3-6 MW) has been trending in the opposite direction as the Lobos, losing its last three in a row. The Rams dropped a pair of home games and was handled in their last meeting, a

97-78 road loss to San Diego State. CSU could be a matchup problem for New Mexico as Weir pointed out that the Rams are proficient at doing a lot of things the Lobos struggle at. UNM has had a difficult time staying in front of ball handlers and defending the paint. The Lobos have shown defensive improvement—especially in the second halves of games—but will need to rise up to face the challenge of Colorado State's oneon-one playmaking ability. Even without the services of its leading scorer, junior guard Prentiss Nixon, the Rams saw virtually no drop-off in team scoring over the past few games. Nixon has averaged 17.9 points per game, but CSU has shown a

penchant for getting production from a bevy of other players. Junior guard J.D. Paige is second on the team in scoring, posting 10.4 points per game—but it was Anthony Bonner who led the way for the Rams in their last game, putting up 22 points on just 10 shot attempts. In the previous game against UNLV, four Colorado State players found their way into double digit scoring before the team went cold over the final several minutes and blew a late lead, eventually succumbing to the Rebels by a count of 79-74. New Mexico has been without the services of arguably two of its best players, with senior Sam Logwood and junior guard Troy Simons being out of the lineup.

The Lobos have experienced success in their absence, but might ultimately benefit if and when they make a return. Logwood remains the team's leading scorer, but junior Anthony Mathis and senior transfer Antino Jackson—both guards—have emerged to play major roles in the last several games. That duo combined to make 10 3-pointers in the win over San Diego State. Mathis posted 21 points, while Jackson put up 24—both career highs. Jackson's scoring outburst included the game-winning jumper, which he stuck with with 22.6 seconds left to play. Rebounding the basketball could be a key statistic to keep an eye on during the game. Colorado

State typically outrebounds its opponents by pulling down about 38 boards per contest, while New Mexico averages 33.7 rebounds and is usually on the losing side of that battle. But UNM has flourished recently after making halftime adjustments and adapting as the game progresses. If Weir and his staff are able to continue that trend, then the Lobos could have a chance to get back to .500 overall and maintain its footing in the conference standings.

New health program helps you heal your gut By Ariel Lutnesky @ariellutnesky An opportunity to reconnect with your body and feel more energized is coming in the form of a five-week-long online class starting Wednesday, called “Heal Your Gut, Heal Your Hormones.” Nicole White, a certified holistic health counselor and the instructor for the class, said the course is intended to help people feel better all around in their day-to-day lives. “It helps people naturally balance their hormones, increase energy, stabilize their mood and improve their sleep,” White said. “We spend a good amount of time on releasing stress and anxiety. Too much stress and anxiety can actually bring a lot of these symptoms on.” White’s journey in nutrition started when she was very young and had problems with her gut, she said. Her parents would take her to the doctor, but no one could figure out what was wrong. “I always had stomach aches, or fatigue or I couldn’t stay awake during the day,” she said. “I couldn’t wake up in the morning, and I’d stay up all night...They started telling my parents that it was all in my head, either that I was making things up or different things like that. They thought I was on drugs. What I learned later on was that

there are certain foods, like refined sugars, artificial sweeteners or too many processed foods, that when I eat them, they wreak havoc on my gut, they zap out all of my energy and make me tired when I should be awake.” White began living with better nutrition and teaching about it in order to help other people with their bodily struggles, she said, adding there are a lot of facts about the body that people are shocked to find out about. “Most people are actually kind of surprised and unaware that they really should have one to two solid bowel movements a day,” White said. “A lot of people I work with have chronic constipation. When we work to relieve all of that, your body starts working better, which leaves people (with) more energy, and when they have more energy, they think clearer, they feel better and everything starts to work better in the body.” White said the program is not about weight loss, even though that does happen for some people in her program. Rather, it is about having a healthier lifestyle and getting rid of nasty symptoms, like mood swings, bloating, chronic fatigue and pain. White welcomes people with illnesses such as diabetes, hypoglycemia and fibromyalgia. “It is important for participants who are already being treated for chronic health issues to speak with their doctors before incorporating

any of these lifestyle changes,” said Michelle Hall, the communications specialist for the UNM Center for Life. The UNM Center for Life is promoting White’s class through marketing, White said. This helps spread the word to UNM students, faculty and employees, she said. “The class was a good fit for our patient demographic at the Center for Life,” Hall said. “The class is also open to anyone at UNM and the Albuquerque community. It addresses symptoms that can be managed with simple, healthy lifestyle changes.” UNM employees can use their tuition remission to help pay for the course, Hall said. White created the independent program — and since it is an independent course, participants cannot earn college credit, White said. The whole course is personalized for each student, starting with a food mood journal in the beginning, White said. After a week of journaling, each student talks with White, and they plan out what works best for them. White also takes student preferences into consideration — this includes preferences like hating to cook, she said. “I’m educating people based on their personal lifestyle rather than giving them a cookie-cutter diet that won’t work, or that maybe they stick with for a little while and then they

fall off of,” White said. White’s approach is a “win-win” situation, she said. White doesn’t want to tell people that they can’t eat something that they love. “Because of my eating disorder background, I understand that if someone wants cookies and milk every night, and you tell them not to eat that, they’re going to want it even more,” White said. “With some of these eating disorders and losing weight, there’s usually some kind of rebellion and this desire to eat what we want to eat, because it makes us feel good in the moment.” White said she will help students find more nutritious — and still tasty — cookie and milk options instead of telling them not to eat them. That way, they can have their cookies and stay nutritious too. One of the features of White’s online class is a virtual grocery store tour, where she points out all kinds of options that people might not have known about before. “It helps people realize that there is a lot more food that they can eat that’s delicious and nourishing than what they thought they were limited to,” White said. “This also keeps people from starting sometimes, because they think it’s going to be a diet, and the foods that they love are going to be taken away from them.” White’s online platform for the course will include a variety of materials such as recorded videos, downloadable recipes and live

calls, where people can talk to each other about their nutrition journey, she said. “There’s just a variety of different ‘a-has’ when people hear what’s going on with other folks, and it’s helpful for people to feel like they’re not alone,” White said. Of course, students do not have to talk about their experiences with other students if they prefer not to, she said. “Some people want to stay very private, and I respect that, and other people want the community and they want other people to share information with,” White said. “I like Nicole (White)’s approach to introducing healthy lifestyle changes to individuals experiencing negative symptoms from chronic health issues,” Hall said. “She teaches how to easily and slowly incorporate small healthy changes, so the participant is not overwhelmed by a whole lifestyle change.” Those interested can contact Nicole White at 505-204-1437 or for more information.

Africana Studies and the Fate of the University” focused on the overall theme of this year’s event. The brunch commemorated black community members who have contributed to UNM’s success.

a role in the potential success of UNM’s future. He based his ideology on two points: “our warfare lies in the field of thought,” and Africana studies is essentially an “experiment of scholarship in the context of struggle.” Walker said he wants to discuss blackness, but not in a way that infers diversity, affirmative action, inclusion or blackness as pathology. He said he wants to focus on Africana studies and

blackness as a lived experience of people in the world who have a unique experience. “(The Africana Studies Program) is about an organization of knowledge in the University — it’s about the very idea of humanities as an intellectual project,” Walker said. “It is the very idea of what it means to be human in the world.” He also critiqued the belief that having an Africana studies program at a university eliminates racialized

issues and diversity problems. Walker created an overall call for action. He spoke to address what the challenges of Africana studies were. He also addressed how the field of study creates a different environment in the university setting and that this program should be taken seriously by the community, by the University and by students. “If we take Albuquerque

serious, if we take the conflict of knowledge with our students serious, then (the world) will have no choice but to pay attention to the epistemic insurrection that we call Black Studies,” he said.

After many years of stop-and-go progress and meetings with the IT department, a process that would benefit students at UNM was found, Devereaux said.

To legally change one’s full name in New Mexico, “an applicant must submit a petition to the court,” according to transequality. org. “Before filing the petition, the applicant must publish notice of the petition at least once a week for two weeks.” Being that this is a new policy officially implemented on Jan. 22, the LoboCard office expects to receive more preferred name change requests as the word gets out, said LoboCard office member Carolyn Hartley. Hartley has been part of the group that has been ensuring that the preferred name change requests are recognized. “This will reinforce the fact that UNM wants to be a welcoming place for faculty, staff (and) students, and we’re showing respect to people who might have a different way of seeing the world,” Hartley said. “There’s no downside to helping out by being a part of this initiative.”

“The ID card is the part we could accomplish right away. Next time we sit down (with IT) we will decide what we can do next.” Janice Devereaux of the LGBTQ Resource Center “The ID card is the part we could accomplish right away,” she said. “Next time we sit down (with IT) we will decide what we can do next.” In New Mexico, the requirements to go about legally changing one’s name is often times too difficult or too financially demanding for people seeking the name change.

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Monday, January 29, 2018

Opinion Editor /

LETTERS Veterans in politics — it’s not about honor Editor, The Atlantic’s Ronald Brownstein reports that a new political organization, With Honor, “has launched a major effort to elect to the House more recent military veterans who commit to working across party lines...a bipartisan core of House Members who are inclined to seek common ground, whatever their personal views.” The idea that veterans are particularly well-suited for political office — in part because of “their experience working in diverse teams that pursue common goals under great stress,” as Brownstein

A simple life is a happier life Editor, I lived well all of 2017 on $5,528 for my total expenses — rent, food, etc. — for less than half the U.S. poverty level for me as a single person.

describes With Honor CEO Rye Barcott’s view — is not a new one. Nor is the expectation of a ready and waiting bloc of voters, many perhaps veterans themselves, who are inclined to support veteran candidates. Perhaps that was once the case, but it isn’t any more. The notion is anchored in a bygone age. From 1952 to 1992, there was no point in bothering to run for president if you weren’t a World War II veteran (the lone exception, Jimmy Carter, was about to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy when the war ended). In 1992, non-veteran Bill Clinton, slammed by some as a draft-dodger, defeated incumbent World War II veteran George H.W. Bush. In 1996, that

same non-veteran beat World War II veteran Bob Dole. In 2000, George W. Bush, technically a veteran but thought a deserter by many, beat an actual Vietnam veteran, Al Gore — and in 2004 he again won versus Vietnam veteran John Kerry. In 2008, non-veteran Barack Obama defeated veteran and former POW John McCain. In 2012 and 2016, neither major American political party bothered to run a veteran for president. Why would they? Their most credible veteran candidates had lost five times in a row to non-veterans or to politicians with disputed claims as to the character of their military service. I’ll let you in on three little secrets: First, the only thing all veterans have in common is that we’re former

government employees. Clerks. Cooks. Cops. Mechanics. Truck drivers. And, yes, some combatants. Second, we all joined the military for our own reasons. For college money. Because there weren’t a lot of good jobs in our towns. To learn a marketable skill. And, yes, some of us out of our own personal notions of duty or patriotism. Third, we all have our own political convictions, from staunch conservative to bleeding heart liberal to social democrat to radical libertarian. Put three veterans in a room, and you’ll get four answers to whatever question you ask them. Forming a political organization around veterans is like forming a political organization around restaurant workers, stamp collectors or avid kayakers. If it

ever made sense, it stopped making sense a long time ago. Political organizations should be formed around principles and policy proposals, not around people who have the same former employer. I’m not looking for politicians who “work across party lines” to “find common ground.” I’m looking for candidates who will defend our liberty and reduce the size, scope and power of government. And I don’t care who those politicians used to work for. Neither should you.

I enjoy living simply — less spoiled, less bills, less stress, more freedom. I refuse to be a slave to ads, commercials and corporations. How much worse the environment and climate chaos would be if all 7 billion people on Earth consumed, traveled, polluted and ate meat and dairy like most USA-ans.

Why hog much more than my fair share in our world family? Freedom is not having and not wanting much I do not need. I enjoy having enough — one sunny room to live in, healthy food, warm clothes for cold weather, a garden for food and flowers. My time is more precious than

millions of dollars. My friendships are more precious than mansions full of expensive things. Why love much more than I need while many millions have have far less than they need? Booze, junk food, cocaine, meth, sugar, heroin, sodas, cigarettes — all are terrible addictions,

but no addiction is more harmful than craving much more money, much more stuff than we need!

UNM Honors College celebrates poetry By Timber Mabes @timbermabes

The University of New Mexico’s Honors College kicked off their Discovery Lecture Series Friday with their second Poetry Takeover of the school year. The first ever poetry takeover was such a large success in the fall of 2017, that it was selected to be the first Honors lecture of 2018. Featuring poems written by Honors College faculty and poets A.J. Odasso and Nora Hickey, the performance took place in the Honors College Forum. First to share her poetry was Nora Hickey, whose work has been published in a variety of

magazines, such as the Bennington Review, the Massachusetts Review, Guernica and DIAGRAM. Originally from Wisconsin, Hickey currently speaks in an Albuquerque podcast called “City on the Edge” and teaches at UNM’s Honors College. She has an MFA in writing with a specialization in poetry. Hickey shared two types of poems with the audience. The first group of poems were “inspired by the mundane” and pondered the death of an ant, meat, steam rooms and buying flowers, she said. Hickey’s next series of poems were inspired by the 1892 diary entries of a man who moved to New Mexico from Nebraska. Hick-

ey said she wrote these poems, because she felt she had a connection with this man, being from another state herself. Hickey both silenced the room and filled it with laughter while reading her poems. The next poet, AJ Odasso, also has her MFA in creative writing with a specialization in poetry and is a writer and editor of speculative poetry — poetry that falls outside of the mainstream. Odasso has had three of her poetry collections published and has been featured in a variety of magazines. Her work was also shortlisted for the 2017 Sexton Prize. Odasso read her work to the audience directly from the magazines

in which they were published. Her poetry is most often inspired by personal experiences, including “illness, family, intersection of gender and the medical,” as well as religion and a cruel breakup, she said. “I’m a combination of very regimented and very chaotic,” Odasso said on her writing organization. “For the writing of prose, I have to be more regimented, and with poetry, it’s incredibly chaotic. I might just be walking across town, and suddenly a line or two will pop into my head, and I’ll quickly have to get out my phone. It’s very emotionally driven, almost whims.” Like Odasso, Hickey’s writing process is also unorganized, and she often has trouble when it

comes to making herself write. “Something will strike me, whether an image or a line, and I collect them, and I don’t really do anything with them until I make the concerted effort,” Hickey said. “I have trouble making myself write, but I feel bad when I don’t.” Both authors said they dream of being published in Poetry Magazine. Additionally, Odasso aspires to be featured in the U.K.’s Poetry Review, and Hickey hopes to be featured in The Believer, they said. Timber Mabes is a culture reporter with the Daily Lobo.

Movie Review

“Pitch Perfect 3” offers plenty of laughs By Hector Valverede @hpvalverde


Centered around a competitive college acapella group, the Pitch Perfect films have offered some of the most unique comedic products in recent times. “Pitch Perfect 3” is another winning entry in the series that wraps up the characters’ stories effectively while succeeding as an entertaining romp in its own right. A few years after graduation and the events of “Pitch Perfect 2,” the Barden Bellas live unsatisfying lives in the real world. Beca (Anna Kendrick) is a producer for untalented musicians, Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is jobless and Chloe (Brittany Snow) desperately misses performing acapella.

So when an opportunity presents itself for the Bellas to tour for the troops overseas, the girls leap at the chance to come back together for one last hurrah. “Pitch Perfect 3” smartly ditches some of the more insignificant material of the last two films. There are no tedious romantic subplots plaguing Beca or Fat Amy, giving the film better comedic streamlining. Similarly while Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins return as the tasteless acapella competition co-anchors, they are also thankfully less present. Although the pair could be funny, I often found their cutaway gags intrusive in the past two films. Like the last two films, “Pitch Perfect 3” can get a bit gratuitous in its music numbers, considering the film itself isn’t really a musical.

The numbers are well directed and entertaining enough — and you should already know what you’re getting into by this point. The film also continues the weirdly irreverent, wonky sense of self-aware humor from the past two entries to great effect. Jokes are fired non-stop from the main and supporting cast, and it’s easy to miss many of them on a first viewing. From Kendrick’s deadpan delivery as Beca to the returning mania of Anna Camp’s Audrey, the quality of the comedy is never compromised for the great quantity. This is what allows for the diverse cast to work so well, making even the most minor of roles stand out from the crowd. Wilson is also allotted a lot more screen time as Fat Amy this time around. With the return of her

long-absent father, played by John Lithgow, her arc takes up a decent portion of the film. The arc was fun enough, and Wilson’s over-the-top antics were often hilarious. It could be argued the film jumps the shark near the end, but I’d recommend to just go with it and have fun. It’s not like this is a particularly serious series anyway. “Pitch Perfect 3” is a good progression of the last two films, hitting notes of post-grad terror and yearning for the heyday past. As a likely finale for the Bellas, the film is a gratifying and sweet conclusion to the Pitch Perfect series. AHector Valverede is a culture reporter with the Daily Lobo.

VEX Robotics Competition introduces kids to STEM By Amy Byres and Dalton Padilla @amybyres12 @DaltonOPadilla Editor’s Note: This article is part of a multimedia package, which includes a video produced by Dalton Padilla, accessible on our website and on the Daily Lobo YouTube channel, username: dailylobo. A three-team alliance merged victorious at the K-12 VEX Robotics Competition held at the University of New Mexico’s Centennial Engineering Center on Jan. 27. The winners of the best of three final rounds were: • Navajo Prep Robotics from Navajo Preparatory School, • School of Dreams Team 2 from School of Dreams Academy • and the Cleveland Colts from Cleveland Middle School. Only six of the 28 teams competing in the competition moved on to the final rounds to form two threeteam alliances: the Blue Team and the Red Team. The sound of cheering fans filled the air. Francisco Viramontes said it is a sight to see watching kids run around with giant robots in their hands preparing for their match. In the final match the Red Team — which included Navajo Prep Robotics, School of Dreams Team 2 and the Cleveland Colts — faced off with the Blue Team — which included SPX Team 2, School of Dreams Team 3 and the School of Dreams Academy. In the first round of the final match, the Blue Team’s robot started strong by stacking cones for points. But halfway through the match, one of the team’s robots fell over and off its wheels, leaving the team with one less robot, giving the Red Team an easy first win. In the second round of the final match, the Red Team’s robots consistently scored points to win the competition 2-to-0. Logan Slimp of Navajo Prepara-

tory School said the robot took the team a week and a half to build. “We (in the VEX Robotics Competition) have different teams and skill competitions, and everybody tries to come together…We’re trying to mainly get the word out about doing hands-on activities for kids to get them used to building stuff and being technologically aware (of) what's around them to try to stimulate awareness in engineering and science fields so they are inspired to pursue these fields going into their careers,” said Chris Torres, a UNM senior studying chemical engineering, who announced various parts of the event. Students must work together to create their robots and follow various guidelines.

“It’s really fascinating how all of these kids can get all of these robots together and do the different things with them...and compete.” Adam Lopez UNM freshman majoring in electrical engineering

“They have to design and build their robot. It has a certain set of requirements: you have to use certain materials, the robot cannot be bigger than a certain size and they have to program it on their own,” said ASK Academy Coach Nevelyn Headrick. The students are randomly assigned to teams throughout the day, allowing them to work with a variety of other students and ultimately teach them about teamwork, she said. “It’s really fascinating how all of these kids can get all of these robots together and do the different things with them...and compete,” said Adam Lopez, a UNM freshman majoring in electrical engineering. “I’ve always had a passion for robotics, I found the robotics club on

campus...It was really nice to find a group people who shared my interests,” said Ben Block, a senior from the ASK Academy. Amy Byres is a culture reporter at the Daily Lobo.

Men’s basketball

Valuable recruit Carlton Bragg commits to UNM By Cameron Goeldner @goeldfinger Former five-star recruit Carlton Bragg has transferred to the University of New Mexico and plans to join the men’s basketball team, he announced on Twitter Thursday. “This has been a long journey and a life-long learning experience,” Bragg said in his tweet. “I’m ready to help New Mexico. I’m ready to get to work and help the Lobos. The style of play, the training and the team atmosphere is exactly what I am looking for. I can’t wait to get there and get (going).” A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Bragg was a McDonald’s High School All-American and rated as highly as the 14th best prospect in the country by during his time at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School. Out of high school, Bragg chose the University of Kansas over Kentucky, and spent two years with the Jayhawks. In his time at Kansas he averaged 4.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game; he appeared in 69 total games and started five times. Following the 2016-17 season, Bragg announced that he was leaving Kansas and would transfer, eventually landing at Arizona State. Per NCAA rules, he was required to sit out the 2017-18 season before he would be eligible. On Dec. 31, 2017, 24/7 Sports reported Bragg would leave the Arizona State program before he had played a game and

transfer again. Because he didn’t enroll at UNM until the spring semester, he will be required to sit out next fall, and would be eligible to play next

“This has been a long journey and a life-long learning experience. I’m ready to help New Mexico. I’m ready to get to work and help the Lobos. The style of play, the training and the team atmosphere is exactly what I am looking for. I can’t wait to get there and get (going).”

classes this spring and will have the opportunity to earn a scholarship after the spring semester. “This upcoming semester is a tremendous opportunity for Carlton to create a successful next chapter here, in New Mexico, and we will seek to provide everything we can to help him achieve excellence,” head coach Paul Weir said in a release. “Our culture and work ethic are as established as they’ve been, and I can think of no better time for a young man to enter our program with an optimal chance of success. I am hopeful Carlton uses this semester to completely engage himself in our process.” He becomes one of six newcomers the Lobos will have next season and the third transfer from a highmajor school alongside JaQuan Lyle and Vance Jackson. Bragg, who is enrolled in online classes and hasn’t yet moved to Albuquerque, will be able to join practices and team functions immediately.

An open letter to protesters, from a concerned journalist By Danielle Prokop @ProkopDani Dear Protester, I am a journalist. One of the mainstream media, if that is the name you choose. I go to rallies, marches, demonstrations, sit-ins — you name it, I cover it. I am there because you are. The causes you support, the tension and disruption are all means of facilitating discussion. So, talk to me. Tell me about it. Why are you there? Why is this important to you? What can we do about it? I understand that there is discomfort in knowing that what you say will be written down or plastered across screens. The recorders, the cameras, the notepads and the questions can all feel disconcerting. However, coming out in support of a cause hopefully means there is a reason, a starting point for discussion. Talking about your positions gives you a chance to express your voice on a platform. Here are a couple quick tips for talking with reporters: I attend protests to report the news, not participate. I do not want your name so I can humiliate you — it’s for accountability. And I will ask you about spelling, no matter how simple it may seem. Sorry. I ask you questions not because I agree or disagree, but because it is my job. Emotional appeals not based on facts are subject to scrutiny. It is a matter of credibility. If your cause

is pushing something that has no basis in facts, it will be challenged — and rightfully so. Protests are fundamentally emotional. They have aspects of showmanship. It is called a demonstration for a reason. There is plenty of room for criticism for journalists covering demonstrations.

Are journalists covering sensitive protests fairly? Is coverage too dramatic or sensationalized? Whose voices are elevated above the others? These questions are all fair and reasonable. Journalists must be held to a critical standard in portraying events and people. Are we holding that platform

UNM set to launch new master’s program By Tom Hanlon @TomHanlonNM Graduate students from across the country will soon be able to earn a degree from the University of New Mexico directly related to global and national security. Last week UNM’s Global and National Security Policy Institute secured the next step in launching its master’s degree program. The program was approved by deans throughout the University as part of a multi-step process for establishing a graduate-level program. The GNSPI acts as an umbrella institution, covering all global and national security-related courses and research throughout UNM’s campuses. GNSPI Director Dr. Emile Nakhleh said reception of the program has been positive. “We expect the process to be very smooth, and I expect final approval by summer,” he said. Nakhleh served as a senior intelligence officer with the CIA and has worked as a research professor focusing on Islamic radicalization and terrorism in the Middle East. As director of GNSPI, he oversees the institute’s academic affairs within the University. The GNSPI currently offers an undergraduate certificate in global and national security through the University College. It also offers online graduate-level courses, on which it hopes to build the master’s program. These courses cover a range of national security issues, including topics such as food and water security. Nakhleh said earning a degree through GNSPI will help students who are interested in global and national security find employment in that area. “Our students who take this degree can easily find jobs in the intelligence community, in the federal government, in the diplomatic corps, global NGOs, the United Nations,” Nakhleh said. “In other words, this degree, on top of your BA, would really open the way for you.” The proposed master’s program would not discriminate based on a prospective student’s undergraduate degree. Nakhleh said no matter what bachelor’s degree a student

earned, as long as they are passionate about their field, interested in security-related subjects and other cultures, the master’s program will consider them. The GNSPI has two advisory boards that aid in the process of acquiring the master’s program. One is external and comprised of senior leadership from national security entities around Albuquerque and New Mexico, including directors from Los Alamos and Sandia National Labs. The other board is internal and made up of UNM deans, chairs and senior professors. Dr. Edl Schamiloglu is a professor of electrical and computer engineering and serves on the internal advisory board. He also teaches one of the graduate-level classes that GNSPI currently offers. “Our master’s and Ph.D. stu-

dents take mathematical, very, very technical courses, and (the course I teach) is interesting, because it forces them to think about policy, about ethics, about human consequences,” Schamiloglu said. He said his course is focused on directed energy that can be either high-powered microwaves or high-energy lasers aimed at a target. This course is paired with a class on cybersecurity as part of a module that offers a broad understanding of technology as it relates to cybersecurity. The courses are interdisciplinary, meaning anyone is eligible to take them, even without a background in technology, Schamiloglu said. “Given a lot of the complexities when it comes to national security, I think it’s important to be able to give more than hard science and en-

gineering to leaders in the national labs and government agencies,” Schamiloglu said. Mark Orgeron, executive vice president for academic affairs under the provost, has taken the course about directed energy and cybersecurity. He currently holds a master’s degree in sports administration but said he hopes to pursue a master’s in global and national security to compliment his current graduate degree. “A lot of the things I started looking at in sports were more security-related in terms of facility safety,” Orgeron said. “With things like the Boston Marathon bombing that got me thinking about, ‘Okay, what are we really doing to protect athletes, spectators?’” The GNSPI courses are built around the idea that the students

taking them are likely working fulltime jobs — classes are structured as eight-week courses and come in pairs to accomodate students. Orgeron said this format suits his needs. He said he believes due to the support from the national security industry in New Mexico, the master’s program will be successful. “We have a unique situation here with the labs and the air force base,” Orgeron said. “I think this is a perfect situation for this institute to grow and thrive.” Tom Hanlon is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo.

@Coltonperson Despite Eminem scoring his eighth consecutive No. 1 album, “Revival” is not what we’ve come to expect from one of the most decorated rappers in history. The Detroit legend and hiphop icon has been known for being unapologetically himself, whether the public approves of it or not. With genre-defining songs such as “Stan,” “Lose Yourself,” “Rap God,” “The Real Slim Shady” and many more, we hold the most technically skilled rapper on an extremely high pedestal — and perhaps wrongly so.

“Here he opens with ‘Why are expectations so high? Is it the bar I set?’ The answer is yes.” Colton Newman Music Writer and Photo Editor for the Daily Lobo The road to “Revival” was an interesting, albeit promising one. During the most recent BET Hiphop Awards Eminem performed a freestyle attacking the political climate that has ravaged out of control during 2017, remarking on Donald Trump’s political career. A month or so afterwards, Eminem released a song called “Walk On Water,” featuring Beyoncé. The single, although leaving much to be desired from Beyoncé, was a compelling track in which Eminem explores his stardom and fading relevancy. Here he opens with “Why are expectations so high? Is it the bar I set?” The answer is yes. Throughout the song, the sound of crumpling paper can be heard, bars that will never see the light of day. Structurally the whole song bears resemblance

to Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart Part 4.” All in all, the song is an enjoyable listen and a keyhole look into the mind of an artist who feels his success slipping away — but in the context of the album as a whole, it serves as an ominous warning. After the release and praise of “Walk on Water” came the full track list for “Revival” — and it was concerning to say the least. Alicia Keys, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey, Kehlani, P!nk, and the most troublesome feature: the overrated, red-maned, guitarwielding man known as Ed Sheeran, all played a part on Eminem’s attempt to reignite his career. With the release of “Revival,” my speculations about the odd pairing of artists was sadly confirmed. Almost every track with a featured guest felt overly forced: a crutch for the ailing rapper to lean on. The few features that pay off are Beyoncé and maybe X-Ambassadors. It gets egregious, to the point where “Need Me,” featuring P!nk doesn’t even feature Eminem until the two-minute mark. Along with the barrage of hitor-miss features, what makes “Revival” an insignificant album is its lyrical content. At it’s lowest point, Eminem has brought the line, “Your booty is heavy duty like diarrhea” into this world — and the world is a lesser place because of it. The majority of the album’s lyrics could be considered a sin against the musical art form for being as terrible as they are. If these are the lyrics that made the final cut, what monstrosities could possibly have been on the papers that were being crumpled up on “Walk On Water”? Not only are the lyrics subpar, the topics become repetitive — at least six of the 17 tracks contain at least one lyric about Trump or politics. I would have thought that Eminem’s four-minute lackluster freestyle would have helped him air out all he needed to say about Trump, though perhaps we, as the audience, are mistaken. No matter how bad the feature or how cringeworthy the lyrics may be, no song in Eminem’s discogra-

phy could come close to being as bad as his track “Untouchable.” This song is unlistenable — nowhere near good enough for any artist to release, let alone Eminem, with everything he has accomplished in his career. “Untouchable” is hopefully what rock bottom looks like for the oncegreat rapper, because I couldn’t, in my wildest dreams, think of a song that could be more shallow, disingenuous and phoned-in. On “Framed” however, we finally get to see a glimpse of the real Slim Shady. The quirky production and comically enjoyably delivery takes listeners back to a time when the world hung on every word the bleached-haired psychopath spoke. Though an extremely brief reappearance, it is perhaps the only glimmer of hope that shines on “Revival.” The album cover for “Revival” depicts Eminem holding his head down while covering his face with his hand; he has a look of disappointment and shame. My first thoughts of the cover were that he was ashamed of the current political climate in America, but it’s clear that the album cover depicts Eminem listening to his own album. I feel the same way. Colton Newman is the photo editor and a music writer for the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at or on Twitter @Coltonperson.


UNM struggles in conference By Matthew Narvaiz @matt_narvaiz

It’s been a tough go as of late for the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team. The Lobos (16-6, 4-5 MW) traveled to Colorado State Saturday for their second-straight conference road matchup and lost, 74-71, in overtime — marking the team’s third-straight loss in conference, putting them at 4-5 overall in the Mountain West. The Rams (14-7, 6-4 MW), with 26 seconds left on the clock, drained a 3-pointer to break a 71-71 tie and took home the victory. In the last three-and-a-half minutes, UNM wasn’t able to score and missed its final five shots during that frame — including two 3-pointers in the final eight seconds that could have tied the game. Throughout most of the game, the two teams played relatively close with neither team leading by more than eight points. UNM pushed its biggest lead to 42-34, which occurred with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter. By the end of the third, though, CSU managed to creep its way to a

two-point lead, 50-48. New Mexico trailed for most of the fourth quarter, falling behind by as many as six points on several occasions. UNM senior guard Cherise Beynon gave the Lobos a brief one-point lead after she connected from long range, making it 65-64 with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter. But Colorado State quickly regained the lead after Grace Colaivalu was fouled while scoring a layup. Her free throw put the Rams on top 67-65, but New Mexico was able to extend the game with a big bucket by junior post Jaisa Nunn in the closing seconds. And with the teams playing to a stalemate after 40 minutes of regulation, the game moved into overtime. UNM got its lead up to 71-67 after Nunn and senior guard Tesha Buck both scored from the paint, but CSU answered with four straight points of its own to tie things up again. And that was when senior guard Hannah Tvrdy of CSU hit the eventual game-winning 3-pointer, lifting her team to a 74-71 lead with less than 30 seconds to play. As a team, the Lobos made 33.3 percent of their shots and

went 6-of-25 from beyond the arc, while the Rams shot 42.9 percent and made 9-of-24 from the 3-point marker. For UNM, Beynon led with a game-high 30 points and a season-high 13 rebounds, giving her a double-double. Nunn also had a double-double, with 13 points and 12 rebounds. CSU had four players score in double figures, behind Tvrdy’s team-high 16 points. UNM won the rebounding battle, outdueling the Rams 48-41 overall in the battle on the boards. Conference play hasn’t been kind to the Lobos, as they’re 4-5 in league play. Up next for them, however, is a return to Dreamstyle Arena on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. to take on Utah State (5-16, 3-7 MW). Matthew Narvaiz is a senior sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.
