The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895
Williams’ slate focuses on transparency by Ardee Napolitano firstname.lastname@example.org @ArdeeTheJourno
The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico’s third-highest-ranking official will try her luck at the undergraduate student government’s presidency during this semester’s ASUNM election. ASUNM President Pro-Tempore Rachel Williams will run for presidency this semester on the Connect ASUNM slate. Williams will have to snag the spot from incumbent Isaac Romero, who will run with the Forward UNM
slate, and ASUNM Sen. Colt Balok, who will run with the Team U slate. Williams said she has always dreamt of being the student government’s president. She said she took a step toward making it real last semester while talking to her vice-presidential running-mate Jenna Hagengruber. “The presidency for me has always been a faraway dream,” she said. “When I was a freshman, I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll do it.’ Somewhere along the way, it started to not be real anymore because there was always someone going to do it… We were kind of joking about it one day, then it was just, ‘Let’s do this. We can do it together.’”

Williams will vie for the presidency against fellow candidates Colt Balok and incumbent Isaac Romero in the upcoming student government election.
First elected as a senator in fall 2012, Williams was re-elected last semester. This semester, she won the president pro-tempore position from Balok. She said she has advanced knowledge of the nitty-gritty of ASUNM. “I have lived, breathed, slept ASUNM since I was a freshman,” she said. “I had two semesters when I literally went to every senate meeting every Wednesday. I understand the constitution. I understand the law book. And I understand finance, which is something a lot of people don’t really understand.” Williams said that if elected as president, she would focus on encouraging collaboration among University bodies. “This campus is so diverse… that sometimes it loses its meaning because we throw it around so much and we’re not truly appreciating what it actually means,” she said. “We have all these resource centers and they’re all silo-ed off. That’s something that, we found, is a major issue this year. ASUNM is so disconnected. The concept for our team is to start connecting everything back together.” Williams said she also aims to run her campaign on transparency. She said that to reach out to students, she aims to establish an ASUNM blog that would regularly be updated by officials, which she thinks is doable. “ASUNM has a director of communications, and they work at the executive branch,” she said. “Should I be elected, I would be working with the director of communications on it… We plan to connect our students through communication and transparency.” Hagengruber said ASUNM should also be more transparent with regard to informing students about its finances. She said the government should reach out to various University bodies, such as the resource
centers and Greek Life. “The students are actually paying student fees, which is money that we would give out as a student government,” she said. “But many of them don’t know that they can submit appropriations, that they can come and submit resolutions. They don’t understand that these are things that they have access to just as much as we do.” Hagengruber has been serving as an ASUNM senator for a year, and has served as senate clerk for former ASUNM Vice President Sunny Liu. She currently serves as chair of the Steering and Rules Committee. Hagengruber said she is confident about running with Williams and their slate. “We’re really happy to be running together,” she said. “We love everything and everybody about UNM, and I think that is just something that we take seriously. We take this race seriously, we are competitive, and we are strong women.” But what really sets their slate apart is their love for UNM, she said. “Something that our team very passionate about is being passionate,” she said. “We have experience and we have education on ASUNM, but we also bring such extreme about this University. We want it to succeed in every aspect.” Williams said she finds her fellow presidential candidates and other students running for ASUNM positions fit for the post. She said that although she is optimistic that she would win, she still expects a civil election. “We don’t want to say that anybody else isn’t qualified,” she said. “There are definitely people that are so qualified running against us. So, it’s going to be a great race.” Early voting for the ASUNM election start Thursday.
UNM law program among top in nation by Zachary Pavlik
Only eight clinical law programs in the nation can claim to be better than the clinical training program at the UNM School of Law, according to a recent U.S. News and World Report ranking. The University tops 193 other law schools in the United States ranked by the survey. UNM jumped two spots from its 2013 ranking. David Herring, dean of the law school since July of last year, said that clinical programs in law schools are designed to give potential attorneys a taste of what the profession is like by allowing them to represent a client in a real case. “Students in the course are trained and they actually do represent real clients — either in court, negotiations, or anything a client requires,” Herring said, “The students are being supervised by professional faculty, but they are providing the actual legal services to clients.” Herring said during his time teaching at the University of Michigan’s law school, he was aware of and admired the clinical program at UNM. He said one of the things that sets the University’s program apart is its long-standing history of an outstanding program. “This law school has been a leader in clinical education,” Herring said.“They were really one of the first
Daily Lobo volume 118
law schools, and still one of the only law schools, to require students to take a clinic. All of their clinic faculty are tenure or tenure-track faculty, which is distinctive.” This year, UNM ranked 72nd in the nation overall as a law school, down from its 2013 ranking of 64th. Yale University holds the title of best overall law school in 2014.

UNM’s law school has long been hailed as one of the biggest bargains when it comes to acquiring a law degree, especially when compared to bigger names, Herring said.
According to the UNM website, a year of tuition and fees at UNM for a New Mexico resident is estimated at $15,701.00. In comparison, A year of tuition and fees at Columbia University is estimated at $57,838.00, according to that school’s website. Camille Carey, an assistant professor at the law school, has been assisting students in the clinical program for the past five years. She said that UNM’s clinical program is set apart by its many options and the interaction present between the differing sections of the clinic. “We have a model that is unique and significantly more collaborative between clinic sections than most law schools,” Carey said. “We have five clinic sections. One is our Southwest Indian law clinic. We have a business and tax clinic. We have two sections of a community lawyering clinic, and then a law practice clinic.” Carey said students in the clinic soon set aside any worries that they may have had going into the program and embrace the field and the doors it opens to them. “I think they are originally pretty nervous about the work and the responsibility,” Carey said. “But once they start working with real clients, they get excited about their chosen profession and ability to help others.” Jason Wallace is in his third and last semester at the law school in the clinical program. He said the

program is a key factor in preparing him, as well as other students, for the professional world because it provides vital experience. “The clinic is a great opportunity for law students in New Mexico that a lot of students elsewhere in the country don’t get,” Wallace said. “We’ll work under a supervising attorney who is licensed in the state and, through them, we’ll get to operate entire cases. I would say that working in the clinical law program sets us
ahead of a lot of other law students.” Wallace said that it is great to be attending a law school with both a highly acclaimed clinical law program and a humble tuition figure. “To be able to attend a school that’s, first of all, one of the cheapest in the country, but that offers one of the top 10 practicing clinical law programs in the nation, that’s a great deal,” Wallace said. “I think that could easily be a reason why someone would choose UNM School of Law.”

UNM’s law school has the ninth best clinical training program in the country, according to an annual ranking by U.S. News and World Report. This is Wallace’s last semester at UNM before he graduates this spring.

Jay Janner / AP Photo In this July 18, 2013 file photo, abortion rights supporters demonstrate outside the Capitol auditorium in Austin, Texas, after Gov. Rick Perry signed sweeping abortion restrictions that forced the closure of several clinics by requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
Court says Texas abortion law OK Opinion: Rule does not jeopardize women’s health by Will Weissert
The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas’ tough abortion restrictions that have forced the closure of about 20 clinics around the state, saying the new rules don’t jeopardize women’s health. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and serve no medical purpose. After the lower court’s ruling, the appeals court allowed the restrictions to go into effect while it considered the case, which ultimately could end up before the U.S. Supreme Court. The new law requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and places strict limits on doctors prescribing abortion-inducing pills. More regulations that are scheduled to begin later this year weren’t a part of the case. In its opinion, the appeals court said the law “on its face does not impose an undue burden on the life and health of a woman.” Planned Parenthood, which sued to block the restrictions, called the ruling “terrible” and said that “safe and legal abortion will continue to be virtually impossible for thousands of Texas women to access.” “The latest restrictions in Texas will force women to have abortions later in pregnancy, if they are able to get to a doctor at all,” Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Votes, said in a statement. The Republican-controlled Legislature passed and Gov. Rick Perry signed last summer some of the toughest restrictions in the U.S. on when, where and how women may obtain an abortion. Debate of the law drew thousands of demonstrators on both sides of the issue to the state Capitol in Austin and sparked a 12-plus hour filibuster by state Sen. Wendy Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat who succeeded in temporarily blocking passage. Though the restrictions later passed overwhelmingly, Davis catapulted to political stardom and is now running for governor. The office of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican who is also now running for governor, defended the law in court. He and Perry, who is not seeking re-election in November, cheered Thursday’s ruling. “This unanimous decision is a vindication of the careful deliberation by the Texas Legislature to craft a law to protect the health and safety of Texas women,” Abbott said. In passing the rules, Texas
lawmakers argued they were protecting the health of the woman. But abortion-rights supporters called the measures an attempt to effectively ban abortion through overregulation. Many abortion doctors do not have admitting privileges and limiting when and where they may prescribe abortion-inducing pills discourages women from choosing that option, they argued. Other aspects of the new rules, including a requirement that all procedures take place in a surgical facility, are set to begin in September, though they may also be challenged in court. At least 19 clinics have shut down since the new law was approved and the 5th Circuit allowed the provisions on hospital-admitting privileges and abortion-inducing pills to take effect, leaving around 24 still open to serve a population of 26 million Texans. More closures could happen after the additional restrictions are in place. In reversing the lower court’s decision, the appeals panel said Thursday that the district court opinion erred in concluding the law “imposed an undue burden in a large fraction of the cases.” “The evidence presented to the district court demonstrates that if the admitting-privileges regulation burdens abortion access by diminishing the number of doctors who will perform abortions and requiring women to travel farther, the burden does not fall on the vast majority of Texas women seeking abortions,” the appeals court found. Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Woman’s Health, which closed two Texas clinics this month because of the restrictions, was dismayed but not surprised by the ruling. “Texas has left thousands of women and families behind in its crusade to end safe abortion by any means necessary and they are using women’s bodies and women’s lives in a political football game,” Hagstrom Miller said in a statement. The U.S. Supreme Court probably will have the last word on the matter. The court’s four liberal justices already have indicated they are inclined to hear an appeal. In November, the four dissented from the high court ruling upholding the 5th Circuit’s decision to allow Texas to enforce the law while the lower court appeal proceeded. Justice Stephen Breyer called the issue of the law’s constitutionality a difficult question. “It is a question, I believe, that at least four members of this court will wish to consider irrespective of the Fifth Circuit’s ultimate decision,” Breyer wrote in a brief opinion that was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. Five votes constitute a majority on the nine-justice court, but it takes only four to grant full review of a lower court ruling.

Harassment should not be a part of campus life Editor’s note: The Daily Lobo’s letter submission policy is to refrain from publishing anonymous letters or those submitted using pseudonyms. However, after meeting with the author in person and authenticating the author’s story, the Daily Lobo decided to break with standard policy in this case. This letter is being published anonymously. Editor, I no longer feel safe on campus. Not because of muggings or drugs; it is because of street harassment. I have been harassed many times on campus. These ranged from a drunken “I LOVE YOU!” on my way to teach a class one morning, to being catcalled while walking handin-hand with my six-year-old stepson. Recently, I was stalked as I crossed Central by a man muttering profanities inches from my ear. He proceeded to comment about my cold-hearted bitchiness to men who looked on and laughed. You may have a knee-jerk response to these stories: I shouldn’t dress provocatively, or I shouldn’t walk around at night. But this had nothing to do with what I was wearing or doing. It occurred in broad daylight in populated areas. I was dressed how other women on campus dress. This harassment had nothing to do with me, and everything to do with the men perpetrating it and the permissive culture toward it on campus. Calling out “compliments” to women in public is not friendly behavior; it’s street harassment. Stopstreetharassment. org defines this as, “Any action or comment between strangers in public places that is disrespectful, unwelcome, threatening and/or harassing and is motivated by gender or sexual orientation.” Street harassment makes women feel vulnerable and uncomfortable in public. Long term effects can include depression, anxiety, PTSD, and limitation of income, mobility and public engagement, according to ihollaback.org. On college campuses, street harassment limits women’s access to education and university resources. This decreases the productivity of our whole community. The women training for their future, teaching our classes, grading our papers and running our university face this threat every single day. Street harassment is illegal in New Mexico. Harassment (Chapt. 30, Article 3A §2), Disorderly Conduct (Chapt. 30, Article 20 §1) and Public Nuisance (Chapt. 30 Article 8 §1) laws all forbid verbal street harassment. Flashing, following, groping, etc. are also illegal. However, these laws are not being enforced. Though harassment occurs frequently on campus, UNMPD reported harassment only twice in the last year. Police need to patrol areas where harassment occurs frequently and arrest offenders. What can you do to help? Say anything! If you see harassment taking place, step in. Stand up to the harasser, talk to the victim, or cause a distraction. Even a significant glance to the victim can decrease the sense of isolation that harassment causes. Bystander intervention is the most effective way to end street harassment. Report harassment to the police. Call 911 (APD) or 277-2241 (UNMPD) and report a crime in progress. If you are being harassed, get to a safe space and then call the police. Students and faculty can’t defend ourselves from harassers. We can’t bring pepper spray or dogs with us to campus. And, we should not have to. We should not have to worry about our safety while we are trying to learn. Making day-to-day life safe for women on this campus needs to be a priority for UNMPD, the administration and the campus community. Student

Forensic science is changing rapidly, thanks to new innovations and improved techniques by Veena Patel
firstname.lastname@example.org Artful detective Sherlock Holmes once proclaimed, “It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.” While Holmes and real detectives of generations past were forced to rely on logic and keen observation to crack a case, modernday sleuthing is transforming into to a real science. Over the last few decades, innovations in forensic science have raised the standard for courtroom evidence. Eyewitness testimony, personality profiling and other qualitative approaches of the past no longer stand up to trial. DNA evidence in particular has cemented its place as final, often damning proof. However, the power bestowed upon forensic science is just a little premature. In the last few years forensic scientists and lawyers alike have discovered that our seemingly innocuous forensic technology may in fact be guilty of misleading us. Last year, the murder of millionaire Raveesh Kumra in his northern California home seemed like an easily solved case — DNA found under Kumra’s fingernails matched that of a stranger, Lukis Anderson. The only problem was that Anderson was in the hospital during the night of the murder. How did DNA from a man with a solid alibi wind up on a dead body many miles away? Prosecutors eventually came to realize that the same group of paramedics responded to Anderson’s and Kumra’s emergencies on the night of the murder, thereby contaminating the Kumra crime scene with Anderson’s DNA from earlier that night. Anderson was released from jail, but his five-month long ordeal raises an uneasy question: how many other individuals have been wrongly convicted based on our blind allegiance to forensic evidence? Suzanne Bell, a forensic chemist at West Virginia University, does not think that forensic science is inherently flawed. She echoes a consensus among the general scientific community that “the fundamental issues… can be solved by fixing the science.” To address the rising problem of ambiguity in forensic investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice and the National
Institute of Standards and Technology assembled the very first U.S. commission on forensic science earlier this year. The group’s chief aim is to improve reliability of analytical techniques and reduce variability in test results. Thankfully, these goals are more attainable than ever. More precise technologies are rapidly emerging as news coverage surrounding wrongful imprisonments shine a spotlight on the weaknesses of forensic science. Most notably, scientific fields such as nanotechnology and artificial intelligence are lending their innovations to forensic applications. Nanotechnology is uniquely useful in “improving the sensitivity of already existing forensic techniques,” according to Dr. Bruce McCord of Florida International University. A 2011 study found that even with professional examiners, correct fingerprint matches between a sample and a database were missed 7.5 percent of the time and incorrect matches between pairs occurred .1 percent of the time. These error rates are shockingly high considering the thousands of fingerprint samples a forensics lab encounters in a given year. Nanotechnology improves fingerprinting accuracy by replacing the typical materials, such as carbon and aluminum flakes, with tiny nanoparticles. This substitution magnifies the sensitivity of development, coaxing out old or faint prints that are traditionally impossible to capture. Even better, fingerprints now tell a detective more than just your identity. The nanoparticles used for development can also include antibodies that change color when they bind to products of cocaine or tobacco consumption in fingerprint sweat. Besides a clear drug testing application, this information reveals a lot about a crime suspect’s lifestyle. Even as DNA sequencing and fingerprint analyses become more accurate, they do not assist in identifying the DNA of individuals who are not already registered in a database. That is when molecular photofitting comes in and shows that criminals can always run, but now they may not be able to hide. Molecular photofitting is a new technique that translates a person’s sequenced genome into an estimated image of their face. While
not yet perfected, it does have a promising future as an objective aid to police sketch artists. Outside of the laboratory, artificial intelligence programs are learning to assist lawyers and judges in figuring out who is lying under oath. European computational linguists Massimo Poesio and Tommaso Fornaciari used a linguistic technique called stylometry to catalog the occurrence of certain words or phrases in a speech sample. Their machine selected guilt-indicating terms via statistical learning after watching hours of statements given by defendants who were later proven to be lying. Currently, the AI robot is about 75 percent accurate at identifying a deceptive defendant — much better than chance and, with some more refinement, worth a spot in the courtroom. Forensic science is working harder than ever before to live up to its name, and thus we are moving past unjust, unreliable evidence in pursuit of the whole truth. Although empowered by the new tools at hand, crime solving will always take insight, careful observation and creative thinking. It is elementary, my dear readers — according to the latest clues, mysteries are just science in disguise.

Experience was one of the major things that the New Mexico baseball team was lacking heading into the 2014 season. Now, 25 games into the year, it appears the youthful Lobos are starting to mature. UNM (17-8-1, 6-3 MW) has won eight out of its past nine games and are in second place in the Mountain West Conference, three games behind conference leader UNLV (17-7, 9-3 MW). The Lobos’ latest victory was a 14-4 decision at New Mexico State on Tuesday. It was UNM’s first win in Las Cruces since 2010. Senior outfielder John Pustay said the team chemistry is the major reason why UNM is playing some of its best baseball. “We’re doing really well, actually. Probably a lot better than some of the expectations that we’ve and a lot of people had,” he said. “We’re feeling really confident but we still have to work on a lot of things.” Over the past nine games, UNM has outscored opponents by

an average of four runs. As a team, the Lobos are batting .313, which ranks tenth in the nation and are scoring an average of 6.26 runs (21st in the nation). Head coach Ray Birmingham said he is particularly proud of how the young pitching staff has improved. UNM’s pitching staff has a collective ERA of 3.81 and opposing batters are hitting just .271. “They’ve all stepped it up. A lot of guys have moved forward,” he said. “We’re getting better every series.” The next three-game series for UNM is at a struggling Air Force (419, 1-8 MW) squad that starts today. The Falcons have lost 13 straight games heading into this weekend’s series and their last victory was on March 8 against Fresno State. Air Force’s chief problem resides on the offensive side as the Falcons have not scored three or more runs the past 11 games. Junior outfielder David Thomas is the only starter batting .254 or better for the Falcons. Overall, Air Force is hitting .212, slugging .279 and has an onbase percentage at .281. On the pitching side, the Falcons have an ERA of 6.22. Air Force
pitcher Cameron White (1-4) has 42 strikeouts in 41.2 innings and has given up just four walks. The Lobos have dominated the Falcons, having won 30 out of the past 32 games but have not swept Air Force since 2009. If UNM is able to sweep Air Force, then the team would tie UNLV for first place in the conference standings. “Air Force is scary at Air Force,” Birmingham said. “They’re a scary team because they’re talented and they always underachieve for a while then they have weekends that they take off. I don’t want that to be us.” Harris Player of the Week UNM outfielder Chase Harris took home his first career Mountain West Player of the Week award after hitting .526 with seven runs and eight RBI’s for the week of March 17-23. Harris helped lead the Lobos to a 4-1 record over the week, including two wins over No. 18 Kansas. This is the third MW Player of the Week award for UNM this season. Pitchers Josh Walker and Victor Sanchez were honored on Feb. 24 and March 17, respectively.

Lobos add win to MWC standing Head coach Erica Beach arranged the beginning of the New Mexico softball season with a sink-or-swim frame of mind. “We have faced off against the best teams in the country… The experience we gained was huge,” Beach said. “I was hoping at the beginning of the season that it wouldn’t backfire, that we wouldn’t shut down as a program.” Beach said that she has been proud of her team’s ability to respond to the club’s record of 1020 with a confident outlook when facing conference opponents. UNM dropped the first two games in its Mountain West opening series against San Diego State (24-9, 2-1 MW) before responding with an 8-6 victory on Sunday, avoiding the sweep and improving to 1-2 overall in conference play. Naomi Tellez continues to swing a scorching bat, going 3 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs, in the final game of the series. “My goal this year was to be more consistent,” Tellez said. “I am going in with that mentality at every bat now.” Beach said the win was huge, particularly because it was the last game in the series. “It was crucial to take one, especially from a team that was ranked number one in the conference,” Beach said. “For us to
Aaron Sweet / @AaronCSweet / Daily Lobo UNM outfielder Brandi Heimburg sends the ball back infield during a game against Idaho State on March 2 at Lobo Field. The Lobos will play Nevada this weekend in Reno, Nev. be able to compete and beat their ace was a big deal for our offense.” Tellez was a big contributor in the series and leads the team in hitting with a .391 average. The sophomore’s efficiency is commendable as well, accumulating 24 RBIs in 34 hits, both team highs. The Lobos were able to take the series finale partially due to a six-run second inning and never looking back from there. SDSU’s best pitcher, Andi Smith, was given the boot after only throwing 1.1 innings and giving up four total runs. The Lobos look to improve their conference record in Nevada this weekend. Tellez said that the team plans
to make improvements on the road, especially because of the team’s need to get going in conference play. “We just need to have a different mentality knowing that this is conference and we have to win,” Tellez said. “We have to put aside where we are playing; Just go out and play.” Beach said that the confidence in her team stems from the matchups they have against Nevada (18-12, 0-3 MW). “They didn’t have as tough of a schedule as we did,” Beach said. “As long as we play our game, I think that we can take three.”
