Sexual assaults prompt early safety walk Walks identify places with weak safety on campus by Ardee Napolitano

… they have to get involved and ask questions about things.” The University started conducting campus safety walks in the 1990s, but the student community lost interest on it. The walks were canceled for four years but started up again in fall 2010 after a woman was stabbed outside the Anthropology Building earlier that year. Burford said he now organizes campus safety walks once every semester, the last of which was in November. Safety walk participants inspect campus lighting, the upkeep of buildings, the functionality of the blue-light phones and the crosswalks around campus. He said that despite the recent increase in sexual assaults on campus, he still believes that the campus is safe. “I don’t think we lack any features,” he said. “I think the campus is safe at night just as how it is during the day. I just think we need to educate our students with the resources and information that we already have.” About 10 UNMPD officers, members of the student patrol and about 50 UNM students participated in the safety walk. Oma E-Nunu, a resident adviser in Laguna Hall who participated, said RAs are required to attend the walk every semester. E-Nunu said that although the increase in UNM security was fairly recent, he thinks the University is doing its best to help to

In response to the recent sexual assaults on campus, the University decided to conduct this semester’s campus safety walk earlier than usual. Dean of Students Student Conduct Officer Robert Burford said the University was supposed to hold the safety walk by the end of March or early April but moved it to Tuesday night. Due to the sexual assaults, the University needed to assess the safety of the campus immediately, he said. “It was unfortunate that (the assaults) happened,” he said. “But hopefully we can bring some good from those incidents.” The first of the recent sexual assaults happened Jan. 27, when two men allegedly groped a female student at Johnson Field under her clothes. The second assault happened Feb. 4, when a man allegedly groped a female student over her clothes near Castetter Hall. Burford said the safety walk is the students’ opportunity to make suggestions regarding campus safety to the administration. He said it also makes students aware of the safety features of the campus. “It’s hard to stop every single thing from happening here on campus, but we got to make sure we get the whole community to be aware,” he said. “If they see something that doesn’t look right

The students volunteered to survey the campus after hours to identify unsafe parts of campus that need attention to ensure the safety of students and faculty. prevent similar cases from happening. Still, he said the University could use more patrols from officers. “If it wasn’t for all these groping incidents that happened, I don’t think we would have more security,” he said. “But I think they’re making a very honest effort so they can ensure the campus is safe.” E-Nunu said he found five

broken lights around Dane Smith Hall. He said he wants the University to put more lights in to prevent more assaults from happening, especially on the west side of campus, around the Engineering Building and along the pathway from Mitchell Hall to Castetter Hall. “Most of these assaults, I assume, happen in the dark,” he said. “If they put more lights

around campus and have people do more rounds, I think everybody should be fine.” Burford said he expects the results gathered from the walk to be evaluated in the following weeks. He said the University will work to fix the issues as soon as possible, and that it will seek more funding from the Legislature for projects that it plans to start regarding campus safety.

structional faculty. UNM ranked low in this category as well. For the second part of the proposal, Abdallah prepared a plan for UNM to catch up in five years, assuming other institutions only increase salaries in accordance with cost-of-living adjustments. Those adjustments are yearly increases, regardless of performance, which allow employees to maintain a standard of living. Most of this plan consists of 5 percent raises each year for five years, but part of it is also devoted to performance-based compensation. “It means that not everyone will get the same raise but instead will be evaluated individually,” Abdallah said. “Academic units have metrics they use to compare faculty … such metrics must weigh teaching, research and service. In particular, good teaching must be rewarded.” One consideration missing from the proposal was where the money for increased salaries would come from. “The plan only proposed what the salaries should be, not a source of funding at the direct request of the Board of Regents. In other words, I was not tasked, nor did I

news@dailylobo.com UNM lags behind all its peer institutions when it comes to average faculty pay for full professors, associate professors and assistant professors. Provost Chaouki Abdallah released a communiqué on Jan. 30 announcing the completion of a proposal to increase employee compensation and bring faculty salaries in line with those of peer institutions. UNM President Robert Frank and the Board of Regents requested the plan in the fall. “We were, and still are, losing faculty members to other institutions partly because of salary differences,” Abdallah said. The proposal was constructed using data from surveys of average faculty salaries at 16 peer institutions. The results of the surveys show that UNM’s average faculty salaries range from $7,000-$21,000 less than those of other comparable universities for professors, associate professors, and assistant professors on average. The survey also ranked the peer public research universities by their total number of full-time in-

A look at the deadliest hot-air balloon crashes The Associated Press

Tuesday’s crash of a hot air balloon near Egypt’s ancient city of Luxor, killing 19 tourists, surpasses what ballooning experts believed to have been the deadliest accident in the sport’s 200-year history, a 1989 crash in Australia that left 13 dead. Some of the worst accidents involving recreational hot air balloons: — Feb. 26, 2013: A hot air balloon flying over Luxor, in southern Egypt, caught fire and plunged 1,000 feet to the ground, crashing into a sugarcane field and killing at least 19 foreign tourists. — Aug. 23, 2012: Six people died and 26 were injured when a hot air balloon carrying 32 people, mostly tourists including some children, caught fire and crashed near the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. — Jan. 07, 2012: A hot air balloon struck power lines near Carterton, New Zealand and exploded, crashing to the ground and killing all 11 people on board. — Oct. 14, 2009: Four Dutch tourists were killed in Guangxi, China, after pilots lost control and their hot air balloon burst into flames and crashed. — Aug. 26, 2001: Six people including a child were killed when their hot air balloon touched a power line at Verrens-Arvey in southwestern France.

House OKs student maternity leave by Barry Massey

The Associated Press SANTA FE — New Mexico’s public schools will be required to grant a leave of absence to teenage parents under a proposal approved Friday by the House. The measure will establish a statewide policy requiring at least 10 days of leave when a student gives birth. The excused absences also will be available to the child’s father. A pregnant teen or a student who is a parent will receive four days of leave per semester, in addition to any absences allowed by a school for all students. Schools must provide an opportunity for students to make up the work they missed while on

maternity or parental leave. Supporters said the leave policy will support young parents, allow them to bond with their children and help the students complete school. “We’re wanting to promote healthy families,” said Rep. Doreen Gallegos, a Las Cruces Democrat. New Mexico has among the nation’s highest teen birth rates. Opponents said the proposed leave policy could send the wrong message to teens about the consequences of becoming pregnant or fathering a child. “When we make it easy for people to make bad choices, they make bad choices,” said Rep. Dennis Roch, a Texico Republican and school administrator.

A federal law requires schools to grant students with temporary disabilities a leave of absence for as long as a physician considers it medically necessary, and that also covers childbirth. School districts currently set their own policies on what represents an excused absence. But under state law, a student with more than 10 unexcused absences in a school year is considered a habitual truant, which leads to intervention by school officials and possible prosecution of the student’s parents. The House approved the bill on a 56-12 vote, and sent it to the Senate for consideration. The Legislature’s 60-day session ends in three weeks.

after a 60-day period for public comment. The proposal to retire all but about 50 federally owned chimpanzees is the latest step in a gradual shift away from using chimps as test subjects, owing to technological advances and growing ethical concerns about research on primates that share more than 98 percent of the DNA of humans. Research on the chimps has ranged from psychological studies to trying to develop vaccines for HIV and hepatitis.

KEITHVILLE, La. — For the first time in their lives, four aging chimpanzees once used in federal research can go outside whenever they like. They can lie on the grass, clamber onto a platform 20 feet up on a chimp-style jungle gym and gaze freely at the open sky, the vista unbroken by steel bars. Fifty-two-year-olds Julius and Sandy, 46-year-old Phyllis and 44-year-old Jessica have arrived. These and several other primates are now “living like chimpanzees” as they play, groom each other and tussle at Chimp Haven in northwest Louisiana — the

only national sanctuary for retired federal research chimps. Julius’ group is among 111 chimpanzees coming to Chimp Haven over the next 18 months from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s New Iberia Research Center. They could be the vanguard of a much larger immigration of former research chimps on the way to the refuge in Keithville, La. A National Institutes of Health committee recommended Jan. 22 that most of the other 350 federally owned research chimpanzees be retired to “the federal sanctuary system” — a system of one. The agency’s director will decide whether to accept the recommendations

From the web Online readers responded to the letter “GOP tries to shift blame for sequester to Obama,” published in Monday’s Daily Lobo. In his letter, Jeffrey Paul argues that although public opinion blames Congress for the sequester, the GOP is blaming President Obama. by “Dave Bergeron” “The reason the GOP is calling it the president’s sequester is that it was, in fact, his idea. While (Congress) may share some of the blame for voting for it, the idea came from the White House. When it was proposed, it was designed to force cuts in spending. The White House has now moved the goal posts to include increased taxes, even after getting most of what he wanted in the fiscal-cliff battle. It is clear the president has no interest in decreasing the deficit. You are correct in stating Congress is supposed to pass a budget every year. It is important to note the GOP-led House passed a budget every year since winning back the House in 2010 and sent their budget to the Senate. The Democrat-led Senate, however, hasn’t passed any kind of budget in more than three and a half years. The Democratic leadership has refused to take up the House budget for debate. The President’s proposed budgets have been rejected almost unanimously every year since he took office.” by “DocJohn” “This whole post misses the real point. We wouldn’t have this problem if the Senate would restrain mandatory spending. They are the problem. The House has passed a budget every year. Maybe if our loser U.S. senators would do their job and balance the budget or, heck, even write a budget, even once in five years, we could fix this problem. For what do we have these senators? Why pay them anything when they doing nothing? The time has come to stop the spending.” by “FlameCCT” “Perhaps you’ve forgotten that President Obama and Democrats have continued to blame President Bush for all the fiscal problems that occurred under the Democrat-controlled Congress for Bush’s last two years. Perhaps you have forgotten that President Obama pushed for the sequestration with the Democrats. … Perhaps you have forgotten that even with the sequestration cuts, the federal government will spend more this year than last year. Perhaps you’ve forgotten that they already have increased taxes on the upper-level income. Perhaps you’ve forgotten that the Dem-controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget in more than three years. Perhaps you’ve forgotten the taxes and rising health costs created by the Democrat-controlled Congress and signed by President Obama which have started to take effect. Sorry Jeffrey, but the Democrats need to shoulder their portion of responsibility and start working for the American people instead of always pushing for more irresponsible spending.” To join the conversation, go to DailyLobo.com

Hey wait, is Chick-fil-A even anti-homosexual? Editor’s note: This is in response to the article “ASUNM votes to evict mor chikin,” published in Friday’s Daily Lobo. The article was about ASUNM’s vote to recommend kicking Chick-fil-A out of the SUB. ASUNM conducted a student survey about the restaurant and 85 percent of students surveyed said they wanted Chick-fil-A to stay. This week, the SUB Board will vote on the restaurant’s future in the SUB. Editor, The proposed ban on Chick-fil-A has aroused recent controversy. Diversity, hate, anti-gay and other rhetoric seem to be the buzz words in the news around this issue. The question I’ve been asking myself is: “Since when do the peaceful religious convictions of a fast-food company’s president dictate whether his establishment stays on campus?” I could understand if portions of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s profits were supporting gay-hate organizations — organizations aimed at discrimination or spreading hate-filled propaganda of people who are homosexual. But, as far as I can see, Cathy’s Wingate Foundation is a church ministry whose mission is strengthening families and bringing about spiritual growth. Does the Wingate Foundation really qualify as an anti-gay organization? Why can’t a man have his own religious convictions, convictions that in no way, shape or form tread on the freedom and rights of those wanting a homosexual lifestyle? How do his convictions undermine diversity and tolerance?

Living simply is possible, ethical and rewarding

Editor, I enjoy living simply and healthy on less

Letters than half the U.S. poverty level and less than half the federal income taxable level for me as a single person — to boycott the U.S. empire’s greed and wars. I lived well in 2012 on $4,641 for my total expenses — rent, food, etc. I am glad I own no car, no refrigerator, no TV, no cooking stove, no gun, no washer/dryer, no computer, no big house, no cellphone, no air conditioner, no credit or debit cards, no charge account, no jet travel, no tattoos, no business suit … I am glad I consume no cigarettes, no booze, no junk food, no prescription drugs, no illegal drugs … freedom for me is not having and not wanting these things. Sadly, most USA-ans are as addicted to buying crap we do not need as any heroin addict is to the needle. The spending addictions of most USA-ans keep Wall Street feasting on profits. I buy nothing at Walmart, McDonald’s or large shopping malls. I shop at thrift stores, yard sales and the flea market. I write down every penny I spend every day and add it up. I would trade place with no millionaire, no billionaire. I would be ashamed as hell to live like that. I have no right to more than I need while others in this world have less than they need. I receive $406 per month in retirement Social Security. I have never received food stamps. I switched from a bank to a credit union 22 years ago. Credit unions are member-owned, exempt from paying federal tax, not for profit and not invested in Wall Street. I have washed my clothes by hand since 1998 and I hang them up to dry. I enjoy having a food garden. My home is a sunny 9.5-by-12 rented room with six windows in the house of a friend. The U.S. is less than 5 percent of the world’s people, but steals and hogs 25 percent of the world’s resources. I refuse to live that way. As long as most USA-ans believe they deserve more than poor multitudes

worldwide, and as long as most USA-ans crave and buy crap no one needs, the U.S. empire will rob, exploit, injure and murder millions. Change as fast as you can as long as you can enjoy it and are quite sure you will stick with it for life. Regardless of what others do, the main person I am responsible for changing is myself. I pledge publicly to live simply, to own no car and to pay no federal income tax for war for the rest of my life. Don Schrader Daily Lobo reader

Expelling Chick-fil-A is immature and unfair

Editor’s note: This is in response to the article “ASUNM votes to evict mor chikin,” published in Friday’s Daily Lobo. The article was about ASUNM’s vote to recommend kicking Chick-fil-A out of the SUB. ASUNM conducted a student survey about the restaurant and 85 percent of students surveyed said they wanted Chick-fil-A to stay. This week, the SUB Board will vote on the restaurant’s future in the SUB. Editor, I was pretty disturbed to find out that the student government is trying to forcibly remove Chick-fil-A from the SUB. Whether or not we agree with Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s view on sexuality, running Chick-fil-A out of UNM is an exceptionally immature and unfair way to react. By attempting to force out Chickfil-A, ASUNM is sending a message of discrimination. If our government is attempting to destroy our freedom of speech by shutting down businesses, then where is our government headed? How long before anyone can be run out of UNM for politely and reasonably stating an opinion? Is anyone else disturbed by this? Justin Kesselring UNM student

UNM: $500k needed to cover minimum wage hike by Ardee Napolitano news@dailylobo.com

The recent minimum wage increase in Albuquerque could cost UNM up to half a million dollars. Terry Babbitt, associate vice president of Enrollment Management and overseer of student employment, said the increase may cost UNM $400,000 to $500,000 during fiscal year 2014. He said the exact amount depends on the number of hours student employees work, and the department expects to identify the exact amount by July. Babbitt said UNM still has no specific plan on how to obtain these funds. However, departments will be responsible for making up the difference however they see fit, he said.

“We would rather our students have employment in the educational environment than somewhere off campus.” ~Terry Babbitt associate VP of Enrollment Management The minimum wage increase in Albuquerque was a ballot measure approved by voters last November by a 2-1 ratio. The

measure raised the minimum wage in the city from $7.50 to $8.50, and took effect Jan. 1. Babbitt said the extra expense itself won’t mean fewer student employees. “There are a little more than 3,000 students working on campus,” he said. “We don’t expect it to change.” Babbitt said that although the University expects to spend more because of the wage increase, the increase will minimally affect individual departments. He said this is because most student employees are already paid more than the new citywide minimum wage of $8.50 per hour. Departments can hire more work-study employees to deal with the minimum wage increase without affecting their budgets, because the University pays only 30 cents per dollar of work-study employees’ salaries, Babbitt said. The remaining 70 cents per dollar come from federal funds. But Babbitt said each department will be responsible to find funds to maintain their student workforce. Walter Miller, associate vice president for Student Services who oversees student employment in the SUB, said 85 percent of all employees in the facility are UNM students. He said the facility does not expect to cut costs to be able to pay its student employees’ salary increase. Instead, Miller said the SUB plans to raise revenue by renting spaces to non-UNM groups. He said the SUB also plans to look at how it can manage its budget more efficiently. “We’re going to be looking at all our expenses just to better see

Bara is one of the University employees who has benefited from the minimum wage increase implemented Jan. 1. how we control our dollars.” Camila Valdez, a student employee who works as a front-office assistant at Johnson Center, said student employees working in the center began earning the new minimum wage in January. Valdez said the increase was a good move by the University that will help student employees immensely. “I think it’s good that the University has to do that rather than have us sign contracts saying that we were not going to get the wage

hike,” she said. “I think student jobs are one of the best things a university can do for its students.” UNM President Robert Frank said the University is working to provide more job openings on campus for students. He said the University is trying its best to maintain the competitiveness of student salaries. “Many students work while taking courses at UNM, and we have a number of employment opportunities on campus,” he said. “When

we can employ students, we offer competitive wage for campus jobs. This is only right and it improves their chances of success.” Babbitt said the University aims to maintain competitive student salaries to attract more student employees on campus. “We would rather our students have employment in the educational environment than somewhere off campus,” he said. “We must have competitive wages to make that possible.”

A network of steel mesh tunnels lets the staff move chimps from any part of the sanctuary to any other. Staffers say it’s amazing to see them savor new freedoms. “They light up, look up at the sky, look at us watching them,� behaviorist Amy Fultz said.

Like most newcomers to Chimp Haven, Julius’ group first explored the edges of its new surroundings. Their play yards are surrounded by a high concrete wall that can’t be climbed, and the larger areas of dense pine forest by similar concrete walls and, on one side, a moat. Chimps in the wild make regular perimeter patrols, alert for any encroaching bands and for a chance to expand their own territory. These retirees will send the rest of their lives at the 200-acre sanctuary in a forested park belonging to the Caddo Parish government, which donated the land to Chimp Haven. Two other groups of recent arrivals from the university lab in New Iberia are getting acquainted with each other because each includes a youngster. The aim is to meld them and other groups with juveniles into a group with Chimp Haven’s three “oops� babies, all sired by Conan, who has been at Chimp Haven for years. The 111 incoming chimps include a total of eight youngsters; one was born to a female chimp with HIV, but the others and their mothers all are destined to become part of Conan’s social group. Fultz said some newcomers won’t even step on the grass in the play yards, but Julius’ group had no qualms. “They sit and look around. They look up at the sky. To me, they seem to be thinking, ‘There’s no bars,’� Fultz said.

investigate, where the funds should come from,� Abdallah said. “If it so happens that the state provides the amounts specified in the plan, then there will be no need to increase fees or tuition.� Abdallah stressed that this is just a proposal for a plan, that no financial actions have been confirmed yet, and that the compensation plan would probably not be enacted if the state does not provide funding. “It does not imply a promise or a guarantee. It is up first to the state to fund the University, then up to the Board of Regents to decide on what compensation increases, if any, are approved,� Abdallah said. “At this stage, the plan is an answer to the question: What would it take to catch up UNM faculty salaries with those of our peers?� Margo Milleret, an associate professor of Portuguese and Spanish, has her doubts about the proposal. “As I understand it, the Provost hopes to raise salaries by 5 percent (per year) over the next 5 years, but will need new monies to do so, and a committee in the Legislature is proposing a 1 percent raise for all state employees, which the governor does not support. So, in general, one could say that there is not much chance of a raise either way

after more than four years of no raises at UNM,� Milleret said in an email. However, Milleret said using salary averages may not be an entirely accurate measure of what faculty salaries are actually like at UNM and its peer institutions. “Salaries are always reported in averages, depending on academic status. What professors are paid can change considerably from one department or college to the next. The faculty of professional schools and the medical school at UNM have much higher salaries, in general, than those in education, (arts and sciences), or fine arts.� Deborah Fort, an associate professor in the cinematic arts department, had similar concerns and said the low faculty salaries affect faculty retention at UNM. “One of the things that happens with (the lower salaries) is that UNM can’t attract the same kind of faculty that other places can. I know people who have left for both salaries and the other benefits that other universities offer in terms of research funding and that kind of thing,� Fort said, “So in order to remain competitive and provide the best education we can for students, I think that it’s great the University is looking into that.�

Bars donate profit to charity by Juan A. Lozano The Associated Press

HOUSTON — Call it benevolence through beer, donating via daiquiri or generosity by gin and tonic. A new Houston bar is offering its customers not just a relaxed atmosphere with good drinks and food, but a pledge that 100 percent of its profits will be donated to a different local charity or social cause each month. And patrons can vote for which charity benefits from their Merlots and martinis. “Where else can you do good with your drinking?” said Tom Burgett, 45, as he sat at the ovalshaped counter at the center of the bar with his wife, Kim, and enjoyed a beer. The Original OKRA Charity Saloon is one of several bars around the country that are using the business as a way to give back to local communities and also providing people a creative method of being philanthropic. There are similar bars in Washington, D.C., and Austin and another being planned in Portland, Ore. Houston bar and restaurant owner Bobby Heugel’s group,

an Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs or OKRA, runs the charity saloon. Heugel said the idea was born of a need to highlight the civic exchange that occurs between restaurants and bars and the communities they operate in. “And so finding a way for your establishment to be part of the community from which you profit from I think is really important,” Heugel said of the group, which is made up of some of the city’s bestknown establishments, including Anvil Bar & Refuge, Underbelly and Oxheart. At the charity saloon — located in a downtown brick building that dates back to the 1880s — whenever customers order a drink or food, they will get one ticket for each item. On each menu is a short description of the four charities being featured that month, said Mike Criss, the bar’s general manager. Customers vote by dropping their tickets into a row of boxes, one for each charity. Once the bar, which is registered as a nonprofit, pays its operating costs, 100 percent of the remaining profits go to the winning charity. Heugel said the ultimate goal is to donate $10,000 per month.

As they stood at the bar’s counter underneath the striking, curved wooden-barrel vault ceiling, Meagan and James Silk reviewed the list of January’s charities. They included ones that combat childhood obesity, provide services to HIV and AIDS patients, give furniture to needy residents and rescue neglected and abused dogs and cats. With a laugh, Meagan Silk told her husband which charity they would both support. “I vote for one kind of charity pretty much. We are animal people,” she said. The Silks run a Houston restaurant. Her choice, Corridor Rescue, ended up being the winning charity for January and will get the bar’s profits for February. Anna Barbosa, Corridor Rescue’s fundraising director, said the donation will allow the nonprofit to support its spayneuter program and offer medical care for more animals. “It just means the world to us to get this kind of community support and through the charity bar we’re so grateful because we get more visibility,” she said.

Ryan Ruff sophomore, criminology “I like to put on different clothes — you’ve just got to be confident in what you wear, you’ve got to sell it.” Ruff said he likes to dress for both comfort and class, from pea coats to camouflageprint pants. Favorite fashion trend: “Urban wear — it fits me. I love to put on suits, but I like the urban wear, it’s our generation, that’s what we wear.” Least favorite fashion trend: “I don’t really like the bulky look, the baggy clothes. I don’t like tight clothes, but you’ve got to be fit.” Advice to a fashion-defunct friend: “Whatever you have, own it. Be confident and that’s what it all boils down to. You have to have confidence.”

Ashley Quintana senior, contemporary dance “I like things that stand out and kind of pop, just unique that you don’t see everyone else wearing.” Quintana said she avoids popular trends, picking out and piecing together her outfits as she goes along. Favorite fashion trend: “I put my own stuff together. I don’t pay attention to popular trends, though one thing is the bows, I like the bows. They’re just cute.” Least favorite fashion trend: “I don’t like skinny jeans. They don’t look right on me. Most girls that I see look good in them, but guys, no.” Advice to a fashion-defunct friend: “Try to put your own style together, be unique, be yourself. Anything that catches your eye, if you like it, you like it, who cares what anyone else thinks?”

‘Saudade’ a Brazilian delight by Annie Swift

culture@dailylobo.com On Saturday, I could find no better remedy to a hard week than a cold drink and the soft sounds of Saudade when the four-person band played a mix of classic and modern Brazilian music at Yanni’s Mediterranean Grill and Opa Bar on Central Avenue. “Saudade” was the first word I learned in Portuguese, and it remains my favorite. It describes the sentiment of longing for something out of reach, be it a person, a place or a time of your life. It encompasses a universal melancholy, nostalgia and desire. The band executed this particular set of music so well that the momentary contentment easily replaced what always seems to be missing. The band played a mix of bossa nova, samba and chorinho, mainly covering famous Brazilian artists such as Gal Costa, Jorge Ben Jor and Maria Rita. The band incorporated voice, guitar, drums and several

wind instruments to create its signature uplifting, fast-paced rhythmic sound that invokes breezy afternoons in Brazil, drinking cocktails and chatting. The dark atmosphere of Yanni’s provided a very intimate setting — no screaming, jumping, pushing or shoving. A few people danced in front of the stage area, while most sat and listened, absorbing the jazz-infused music. The two dancers occupied most of the open space with their farflung and creative dance moves. The lead singer Debo Orlofsky, wrapped in a swath of deep-blue cloth, remained vivacious throughout the evening despite the fact that she was in four-inch heels for hours. The authenticity of the music was evident from the moment the band started playing — nobody could have guessed every band member except for Orlofsky was never trained in the genre. Saudade brings precision and vigor to a local scene that receives

far less attention than it deserves. I recommend to anyone to keep an eye out for the band’s next show if you are looking for vivid tunes from abroad. The band also offers a connection to the Brazilian culture that has an ever-growing presence in Albuquerque. I often hear people talking in Portuguese on the street, meet Brazilians on and off campus and we could all benefit from this sort of contact and artistic immersion.

Jason Franklin, executive director of New York-based Bolder Giving, an organization that educates people about philanthropy, said charity bars are another example of the blurring of boundaries between businesses and nonprofits. Other businesses in recent years with similar philanthropic goals include Give Something Back, a California office supply company that’s given 75 percent of its profits to charity; and Give Realty, an Austin, Texas, real estate company that donates 25 percent of its commissions. Charitable giving took a hit after the recession, so nonprofits and similar groups continue to

look for new ways to raise money, said Franklin, who also teaches courses on philanthropy at New York University. “So if models like charity bars can prove effective, it’s one more place to find new resources to do the work in communities that is needed,” he said. But, Franklin added, “If the drinks are bad, even if the giving is good, I think people will go elsewhere instead.” It’s something Vilelle and other charity bar owners are aware of. “First things first, you have to be a good bar and restaurant regardless of the charitable mission. That’s not going to keep people coming back,” Vilelle said.

Pub from page 7 Nick Vilelle, one of the cofounders of “philanthropub” Cause in Washington, D.C., said showing how and where the money is spent is key for bars like his to succeed. “It’s too easy for someone to use cause marketing as a gimmick and say some portion of your proceeds goes to help some certain cause,” he said of the bar, which opened in late October. “If we’re not transparent about that, people can obviously abuse that.” Like the Houston bar, Cause lets customers choose from four charities. At the end of a quarter, votes are tallied and each charity gets a percentage of the profits based on those votes.

Vermont ponders maple syrup shake-up by Dave Gram

The Associated Press MONTPELIER, Vt. — Would fancy grade maple syrup by any other name taste as sweet? Vermont lawmakers are pondering that question as they consider whether to drop the state’s traditional maple labeling system in favor of an international one. The change pits tradition versus a desire to be a bigger player in world markets. Vermont is the No. 1 maple syrup producer in the United States, but its unique labeling standards put it at odds with the other big producers, including Canada. The state Senate last week passed and sent to the House a measure to drop fancy, grade A medium amber, dark amber and grade B. Fancy is the lightest and mildest, while grade B is the darkest and has the strongest maple flavor. In their place would be several types sharing a grade A label, with descriptive phrases following: golden color and delicate taste; amber color and rich taste; dark color and robust taste; very dark color and strong taste. Sen. Kevin Mullin (R-Rutland) initially argued against the measure before reluctantly going along. “We should not be following everyone else in lockstep and … giving them the ability to try to pretend that syrup made in another state is anywhere near as good as the syrup made in Vermont,” he said. Mullin later said he was mollified by assurances that the changes would be phased in over three years and that producers wouldn’t have to throw out containers already printed with the existing labels. State Agriculture Secretary Chuck Ross said the changes have largely been pushed by the industry, though

the agency has conducted a series of public hearings to address the concerns of the more reluctant producers. Thanks to improvements in technology and growing interest by landowners, Vermont’s syrup production has roughly doubled in the past decade, to the extent that supply vastly exceeds any demand that would come from a state of about 626,000, Ross said.

“We should not be following everyone else in lockstep” ~Kevin Mullin Vermont state senator “What’s become clear is that the majority of syrup produced in the state of Vermont is sold in national and international markets,” Ross said. Vermont will maintain its distinct branding by labeling its syrup as coming from the state. Connoisseurs will continue to appreciate that Vermont regulations will continue to require boiling sap for longer than is the case elsewhere, producing a slightly denser product, Ross said. But to continue using a separate grading system would lead to consumer confusion, the secretary added. Doug Bragg, an eighthgeneration syrup producer from East Montpelier, said he was taking the changes in stride. “Most of our customers are asking, ‘Why do we have to do this?’ There’s a logic to it, no question about it,” Bragg said. “It’s still annoying though.”
