Regent choice faces criticism ASUNM Senate elections By Anthony Jackson @TonyAnjackson Michael Brasher was selected as the new member of the University of New Mexico’s Board of Regents less than a month ago and already faces criticism for what some consider a conflict of interest. The criticisms surround Brasher’s seat on the State Board of Finance as well as the Board of Regents. Brasher was appointed as a regent by Gov. Susana Martinez on March 21, according to the UNM Newsroom. Prior to his appointment, he served for three terms as a member on the State Board of Finance, where he still serves today. “Four members (of the State Board of Finance are) appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate, according to the State Board of Finance website. The committee cannot have “more than two appointed members” from the same political party, and each member serves for two years.

Similar to the procedure for the State Board of Finance, the seven appointees to the BOR must undergo a Senate confirmation and serve “staggered terms of six years,” according to the UNM Board of Regents website. UNM receives money from the State Board of Finance whenever there is a new construction project, major or program that the University wants to jumpstart. If the measure is voted in favor by the BOR and is passed by the Department of Higher Education, the State Board of Finance will determine the fate of the appropriation, according to Robert Aragon, a former UNM regent and current State Board of Finance member. Aragon described the relationship between UNM and the State Board of Finance as “symbiotic.” Appropriations for UNM’s upcoming taproom, Coronado Hall’s renovation and other University contracts in New Mexico will be decided by the State Board of Fi-

Undergraduate students will have the chance to make their voices heard during the Associated Students of University of New Mexico senatorial elections this week. Online voting will take place starting Monday at 9 a.m. and will close Wednesday at 5 p.m. Students can access the online ballot by logging into their myUNM accounts, according to the ASUNM Elections Commission website. The Elections Commission website also states that students can vote at a physical location on the second floor of the Student Union Building. This location will be open on Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the welcome desk. There are currently 21

candidates vying for 10 Senate seats, as compared to last semester’s senatorial election, during which 28 candidates ran in hopes of becoming an ASUNM senator, as previously reported in the Daily Lobo. Last semester also saw a high number of students vote in the election — 2,149 in all. This is compared to the Spring 2017 semester in which 1,551 students voted in the senatorial election, according to results posted on the Elections Commission website. The election comes three weeks after Becka Myers and Emily Wilks were elected president and vice president of ASUNM, respectively. Presidential and senatorial elections are conducted separately.

hand-in-hand, because we have been known to reject projects from the institutions of higher learning,” Aragon said. Government officials must annually fill out a report to give the Secretary of State, stating there are no conflicts within a state entity, he said. However, the “appearance of any conflict still might exist,” Aragon said, citing a time he had to abstain from a vote on the Board of Finance to avoid a potential conflict of interest with a past client he worked with. There are no rules preventing Brasher from serving as a regent, and he believes he “has the knowledge and experience and background” to avoid a conflict of interest, Aragon said.

Kathleen Sabo, the executive director for New Mexico Ethics Watch, said she disagrees with Aragon and questions the validity of Brasher’s vote on both boards. “By all accounts, he is a wonderful upstanding person, but in order to…fund one thing, you’re choosing not to fund something else,” Sabo said. “There would always be a question about whether he was influenced in any way.” Brasher has three clear options: choose to serve on one board, openly discuss with both boards the nature of a vote or recuse himself from “votes on either board that would…lead to a potential conflict,” she said. Brasher would be better off choosing one position if he must recuse himself from

voting on higher education issues, Sabo said. “You have one less person able to vote issues involving the University,” she said, adding that there are other qualified candidates to take on the role as either a BOR member or a member of the State Board of Finance. While it would be nice to have Brasher on both boards, it would be in his best interest, legally speaking, to sit on only one, Sabo said. Cinnamon Blair, the UNM chief marketing and communications officer, released a statement about Brasher’s appointment. “Members of the UNM Board of Regents are appointed by the governor. The University respects each of those appointments and

is committed to working collaboratively with members of the board,” she said. When the Daily Lobo contacted Brasher, he said he was unavailable for an interview. However, he sent a statement over email, saying he would recuse himself from any decision making if his vote alludes to a conflict of interest. The Daily Lobo reached out to Martinez’ office multiple times for comment but did not receive a response prior to the publishing of this article.

Author discusses his poetry with the Lobo By Shayla Cunico @ShaylaCunico Writer and poet Scott Laudati is the author of “Play The Devil,” “Hawaiian Shirts in the Electric Chair,” among other creations. He sat down with the Daily Lobo to discuss his latest addition to the world of poetry, “Bone House.” The New Jersey native said he started writing at the young age of 14. “Art was something (I was) always around, and I realized at 14 if I ever wanted to sit at the table I had to get good at something,” Laudati said. “So I started writing. And it was all bad for a very long time.” He began writing poems in college but never had the time to completely devote himself to a novel. As he wrote poems, he would tuck them away in a drawer for safekeeping, not thinking that anything would come of them, he said.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in journalism at Ramapo College in New Jersey, he finished his novel that two publishers showed interest in. After collecting his poems that he had previously tucked away, he thought he should also pitch his loose poems in a form of another publication, Laudati said. “I realized I’d probably never have the opportunity again, so I asked one to publish all my loose poems and the other to publish the novel. It’s a really lucky accident that I’m now a poet,” he said. However, his goals for “Bone House” were much more deliberate, he said. Laudati said he wanted his second collection of poems to be as real and personal as possible. Everyone is always trying to push a positive attitude, and he was sick of that mentality, he said. “The world’s falling apart, and I decided if it ends before I get another book published, I wanted to get all my fear and sadness and

anger onto paper,” Laudati said. “ I put my bones on the page.” “I think everything gets better as you move along,” he said. “You take criticism and learn along the way. Each of my books is about where I’m at that exact moment.” The goal for “Bone House” isn’t to try and make anyone feel good, but rather to bring the other side of life back into art, Laudati said. Contemporary poets like Rupi Kaur use three or four lines paired with a drawing and open up a new realm of poetry through their easily digestible and favorable poems, Laudati said. “They all say basically the same thing about self-love and being brave or strong, and I find them disingenuous in the way I find it impossible that Oprah wakes up every day and says, ‘Thank you for this breath,’” he said. Laudati said he strives to find his own voice and style while maintaining his sincerity to himself and his journey as a writer.

“Only a few years ago, poetry was a lonely medium that no one wanted to read,” he said. “Thanks to these short and easily digestible ‘poems’ on Instagram, a whole audience has blossomed up that is now interested in poetry.” “Bone House” follows themes from lost love and not getting let down, to bringing the hilarity of everyday life that tends to be forgotten, he said. With three publications under his belt, Laudati spreads the idea of making your own path, rather than trying to chase trends, he said. “Every single person has a completely unique talent in them,” Laudati said. “What’s popular today won’t be remembered in two years. If you waste your time trying to catch it, you might miss your moment.” Shayla Cunico is a culture reporter with the Daily Lobo. She can be contacted at culture@ or on Twitter @ShaylaCunico.

By Tom Hanlon @TomHanlonNM Students at the University of New Mexico received free haircuts and signed a pledge to end sexual assault on campus Friday as part of a sexual assault awareness campaign in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Associated Students of UNM hosted seven barbers and hair stylists at Shear Empowerment, an event held in the Student Union Building, which was the first of its kind at UNM. According to a press release by ASUNM, bringing hair stylists was meant to reflect the increasing recognition that sexual assault and domestic violence survivors often confide in their hair stylist or barber. “Salons in general and barber shops in general are pretty frequent reporting sites for

sexual assault and domestic violence. You sit in a chair for a while, you end up talking to someone, and sometimes you end up telling them things you don’t always tell other people,” said Alice Vernon, deputy chief of staff for ASUNM and one of the organizers of the event. April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the event was held as part of a larger ASUNM initiative to combat sexual assault on the UNM campus. Noah Michelsohn, ASUNM director of communication, said the pledge students signed on Friday was part of the national It’s On Us campaign started by former Vice President Joe Biden. “This is our biggest event of the year for that campaign,” Michelsohn said. “Over the year we’ve had over 2,000 students sign this pledge, and today students who sign it are able to get free lunch from a food truck

outside and a free haircut on campus.” Michelsohn said the issue of sexual assault is important to him as an older brother to a little sister who just began her freshman year of college. “I just want to make sure people who have little siblings on this campus and people who have children on this campus feel safe knowing that their student is going to school every day,” Michelsohn said. According to a study from the Association of American Universities, 23 percent of female undergraduate students reported an incident involving attempted or completed sexual assault. Vernon said she feels a personal connection to the issue of sexual assault because of this statistic. “I know people who have been affected by this, and I think everyone deserves to be taken seriously when we talk about it, and it’s important to keep up this dialogue following

‘Times Up’ and ‘Me Too’ movements,” Vernon said. Siobhaen Zgela, a hairstylist at Square Root Salon who participated in the event, said she wanted to donate her time and skills to the cause of sexual assault awareness. She said that while she has interacted with numerous clients who have experienced some form of sexual assault or domestic violence, her goal is to help people regain self-esteem. “I just like to bring confidence to people — and happiness,” Zgela said. “And all the time life is stressful, so it’s nice to have time where you can just sit, relax and feel good about yourself, and so that’s what I like to give to people.” Tom Hanlon is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo.

Award recognizes undergrad researchers By Catherine Stringam @cathey_stringam The Jim and Mary Lois Hulsman Undergraduate Library Research Awards recognized the six winners of their inaugural competition Wednesday afternoon in Zimmerman Library. The awards recognize students who produce outstanding research using library resources and sophisticated information literacy skills. “The idea for this program came from our library faculty and staff,” said Associate Dean of Public Services Mark Emmons. “They lobbied to create a recognition program that would celebrate outstanding research done by our (University of New Mexico) undergraduate students.” There were two categories for students to enter their research

essays in — emerging and advanced researcher. Entries were judged by a panel of library employees and academic experts, and three winners from each category were ultimately chosen. Cindy Pierard, director of Access Services at the College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences, is one of the many members of the Hulsman Award Working Group. The group has been diligently working since last school year to create and kick off the awards program. “The challenge and the reward for this first year was the excellence of the work that we received and the variety of projects that were submitted,” Pierard said. She said there were entries representing different departments across the University, showing the great diversity of work that students are doing.

Don’t worry... it kinda looks like you’re taking notes.

The winners of the undergraduate research awards received a monetary prize, and their work is published. The first-place winner in the advanced researcher category was Jesse Yelvington. His research explored queer poetry and empowerment. Yelvington, a senior, said this is something he has been interested in since high school. He said he wanted his project to be very community-oriented and community-involved. He interviewed several LGBTQ poets around Albuquerque to find what empowerment meant to them. “It’s nice to see all my hard work recognized,” Yelvington said. “I’m glad that it will be more accessible for folks to be able to find it and read about it and see the pictures.” The second-place winner in advanced research was Ashley Koger with her essay, “The Fight

for Historical Representation and Accuracy: Statues of the Confederacy.” In third place was Patrick Latimer with his astrophysics research, “Water Fountain Masers in Proto-planetary Nebulae.” The second category, emerging researcher, is for students doing work in 100- and 200-level courses. The first-place winner in the emerging researcher category was Ellerie Freisinger. Her work pertained to the racial conditioning in the novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Anastasiya Andriyash won second place. Her project was based on John F. Kennedy’s Civil Rights Address. She not only utilized the online databases and thousands of books belonging to UNM Libraries, but also sifted through boxes of microfilms to find old records from The Wall Street Journal.

Andriyash said, prior to this project, she did not realize just how many resources the campus library has available for students. Luisa Pennington received third prize in the emerging researcher category. Pennington is a sophomore majoring in communication and journalism at UNM. She said that one of the best parts of the award is having her work published for others to read. “It’s kind of a big deal for me, because it reassures me that pursuing a career in publications will make me happy,” Pennington said. The work from all six winners can be found online at the UNM Digital Repository. Catherine Stringam is a freelance reporter with the Daily Lobo.

Opinion Editor /

LETTERS Earth would be healthier if we stopped owning cars Editor, Seventeen years ago, April 7, was the last time I rode in any car! I have not owned a car for 38 years. I condemn wars for oil! I condemn fracking. Cars cause catastrophic climate chaos.

ASUNM needs to be proactive with protecting the Lottery Scholarship Editor, I appreciated reading the Daily Lobo’s recent article about the history of the Lottery Scholarship, as it is extremely concerning to many students that the Lottery Scholarship is covering less and less of our tuition every year. As reported, students almost lost more scholarship funding during this past 2018 legislative session because of a bill that would have eliminated the law guaranteeing the scholarship fund

Cars poison the air. Highways, streets, parking lots and garages smother millions of acres of fertile soil needed for growing food and trees. Trees soak up the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, and provide needed oxygen. I save much money! No car repairs, no parking and traffic tickets, no car vandalism, no flat tires, no car insurance, no monthly payments, no car theft. Car crashes have injured and killed millions! Most people

worldwide cannot afford to own a car. How much sicker the environment would be if all people old enough on Earth drove cars like most USA-ans. Sadly many USA-ans are addicted to driving their cars as much as their dollars and time allow. They have no strong conscience against hogging the world’s resources and poisoning the planet for future generations. They regard this insane deadly addiction to driving cars and to flying in planes as their

absolute right — far more important than the lives and homelands of Iraqis, Afghans, Libyans, Nigerians, Columbians, Ecuadorians... destroyed in the U.S. empire’s evil pursuit of oil. I would not keep a car if you gave me one free! I walk mostly. Sometimes I ride the city bus. If we are physically able, walking is best, bicycles are second, then trains, buses and ships. Worst of all for our health and the environment are cars and planes.

Much walking strengthens the bones and heart, prevents diabetes, clears the mind and stimulates blood circulation. Our legs can be great doctors! I love to walk! I pledge never to own a car the rest of my life. As a worldwide human family, we stand dangerously on the edge of a cliff. Progress means stepping backward! We can wake up! We can change!

30 percent of lottery revenues and replacing that guarantee with a $38 million, later $40 million, floor. As it was introduced, this bill provided no incentive for the New Mexico Lottery to ever expand our scholarship fund, or even continue to provide the $42 million a year that it has received on average for the past decade. Students care deeply about the Lottery Scholarship fund, as it pays tuition costs for many of us. We also understand the strength of our student voice and entrust ASUNM to represent all of us at the capitol. However, I am concerned that ASUNM fell short in representing our interests during this past session. Here’s what happened: ASUNM was wisely skeptical of the original

bill and ran a smart and highly effective media campaign that convinced the legislative sponsor to negotiate with students. Unfortunately, they were too quick to shift to supporting the bill in exchange for an amendment that did not actually protect students. The amendment would have put unclaimed prize money (roughly $1.5 to $2 million a year) into the scholarship fund, but the language did not specify that this would be in addition to the $38 million floor. Therefore, students would have only received the $38 million provided in the original bill. This would have decreased the average students annually receive from the Lottery Scholarship fund. Given the extraordinary leverage that ASUNM

had to negotiate, why did they choose to take a deal that would guarantee less than what students had been receiving before? Fortunately, as the Daily Lobo recounted, the bill was transformed from one that harmed students into one that favored students when three amendments were added to the bill on the House floor. The amendments increased the $38 million floor to $40 million, made sure unclaimed prizes would be added on top of the $40 million and capped the New Mexico Lottery administrative spending at 15 percent. A fact less known: these amendments were drafted and advocated for by Think New Mexico, an independent think tank, and legislators,

not ASUNM. While it was very positive that ASUNM supported the new bill with the added amendments, it was too late, as there was no time left in the session and the bill died quietly. Going forward, ASUNM and the governmental affairs office need to take a more proactive approach in designing and advocating for lottery reform legislation that protects students and maximizes dollars for scholarships.

Student Publications Board selects next editor-in-chief By Madison Spratto @Madi_Spratto The Student Publications Board selected the next Daily Lobo editor-in-chief Friday. Kyle Land is a current news editor for the Lobo and will officially take office as the editor-in-chief for the 2018-2019 school year on April 30. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Land came to the University of New Mexico to pursue international studies, but switched his major to history with a minor in English. He began writing for the Lobo a little over one year ago, starting at the music desk and eventually transitioning to a news reporter and then a news editor. He continues to write and edit for the music desk. His love for writing began at a young age and is what first interested him in journalism — it was also a way to get more involved in the community, he said. “Journalism (is) more immediate than other forms of writing that I’ve worked with, in that once you write an article, you can instantly see the effect it has on your country and your community as a whole, and I think I was really attracted to that,” Land said. Although he wrote for his high school newspaper, he said it took a push from his boyfriend to apply for the Lobo, when then Editorin-Chief David Lynch suggested he write for the music desk. During his time as a reporter and editor for the Lobo, he said he has learned thorough knowledge of AP Style, how to properly conduct an interview, how to be a better journalist

and has gained the confidence to pursue journalism as a career. “I think it’s really intimidating when you start because you see people writing these big awesome stories, and you think that you’ll never be able to do that kind of stuff,” he said. “But quickly if you just keep writing little stories, when those big ones do come up, you’ll be totally ready for them.” Current Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Sanchez said working with Land has been an overall positive experience, and he is a coherent decision maker, as well as a skilled reporter and editor. Sanchez said her time in office has helped her become a better person overall, as far as decision making and her journalism skills go. “(Holding the position of editorin-chief) gives you such a unique opportunity to find this...confidence in yourself and pride in other people that work with you,” she said. “I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished this year, and I’m really grateful for all the people I get to work with.” She said her advice to Land is that you cannot save the world in one day, and he cannot do everything — but he can do a lot and make a difference. She added that Land is a strong leader and also somebody a lot of people in the newsroom respect. “He’s always positive, and I think that he will be a very successful person in this position, and I’m confident in his ability to problem solve, lead and improve the Daily Lobo,” Sanchez said. Land said the biggest challenge he thinks he will face as editor-inchief is the frequent turnover of reporters, as students usually don’t write for the paper all four years,

all while keeping up with the quality of reporting that has been illustrated recently. “I think we’ve done a really good job of (covering big topics) this semester — the challenge will be to keep that momentum going into next year,” he said. As for the future of the Lobo, Land said he would like to expand on the multimedia platforms that are already present, in the form of more

videos and additional podcasts. “I think we have the capability as a newsroom to pursue more creative fields,” he said. Land said he is looking forward to working with the various desks at the Lobo, as well as hearing what the other editors would like to see, improve or change at the paper. “I’m super excited about the future of the Lobo,” Land said. “I think we’ve done an amazing job

this semester, I think we’ve tried so many new things that the Lobo hasn’t done before, and I’m very excited to see what we do in the future. And I hope that the readers see that excitement, and they show it with their enthusiasm too.” Madison Spratto is a news editor at the Daily Lobo.

UNM and CNM collaborate on internship project By Megan Holmen @megan_holmen The University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning is working in collaboration with Central New Mexico Community College on a paid internship for students to create sustainable and affordable housing through a project called ecoMOD. According to John Quale, chair and professor at the School of Architecture and Planning, this program originally began at the University of Virginia in 2004. When Quale began working at UNM in 2014, he brought the project with him. “ecoMOD is a design, build and evaluate project that focuses on creating high performance modular and prefabricated homes for affordable housing organizations,” Quale said. CNM has been in collaboration with UNM on this project for the last two years, he said. Quale said he hopes the project will continue to grow, and that UNM and CNM can continue to work in partnership.

Both undergraduate and graduate students at UNM can participate in this project, he said. CNM provides construction technology instructors for the project as well. Pablo Lituma, a student at UNM, became a part of the project when he took a studio class in architecture. The first semester he was involved in ecoMOD he worked on design, guiding teams to create passive energy concepts, such as passive ventilation. The following semester he became a co-team manager for the project, he said. Lituma said he was able to learn a lot throughout the process, including leadership skills and the hands-on experience you can only get through programs like this. “I learned how to design with leadership and learned about project management with students that worked with me,” he said. “Most importantly though, I learned about myself — I gained insight into my passion for teaching other students the skills I have gained during my education and my experience and was able to pass that on.”

It is key for UNM and CNM to have collaborative projects, as collaboration prepares students for professional roles in the community after college, develops stronger community bonds and creates consciousness, Lituma said. “Our community can benefit greatly from sustainable housing, due to the values embedded in our modular approach,” he said. While UNM and CNM have not put a cap on the number of students who can be involved in the program, Quale estimates that there will be between eight and 12 students accepted into the program each semester. Community members should be concerned about the environment, and this project helps create awareness and provide affordable solutions, Lituma said. The program is funded by a grant from the Public Service Company of New Mexico, Quale said. The project looks to reduce energy and water usage, providing sustainable and affordable housing for low-income individuals and families. Living in sustainable housing can reduce carbon emissions as well, he said.

“Affordable housing is very much in demand in Albuquerque and around the state. Providing affordable housing that can also reduce your operating costs is one way to help reduce monthly costs for low-income homeowners,” Quale said. To assure that the houses are sustainable, a seminar performs an assessment to evaluate the homes’ livability and energy

usage. This occurs after the house has been occupied for several months, he said. Megan Holmen is a freelance reporter for news and culture at the Daily Lobo. She can be contacted at, culture@ or on Twitter @megan_holmen.

Local group protests military action in Syria By Donald Amble @Deambler In response to a tweet from President Trump threatening to launch a missile strike against Syria, the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism Coalition, or the ANSWER Coalition, held a protest Thursday against the potential renewal of military action in Syria — the United States launched an airstrike the next day. On Wednesday, President Trump said on Twitter he was considering the launch of an airstrike on Syria. The President proclaimed outrage over the Assad regime’s suspected use of chemical weapons on its own people. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a

Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Trump said Wednesday on Twitter. The Pentagon held a press briefing later that day, according to Reuters. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said, “I believe there was a chemical attack, and we are looking for the actual evidence.” Mattis also told reporters that he wanted weapons inspectors sent to Syria. As of Friday, the U.S., the U.K. and France have all launched airstrikes on Syria in response to the chemical attack. The ANSWER Coalition stood at the corner of Gibson Blvd. and San Mateo Blvd., chanting and speaking at people walking by. Several individuals spoke at the protest, such as University of New Mexico student Kate Barr. “It’s important for the White House to understand that public opinion matters here,” she said. “We don’t believe that the world’s

largest military should be sent off to war on account of a tweet.” Barr said Americans have been lied to about the motivation behind war in the Middle East time and time again, adding that the public should challenge the government and “sitting by doesn’t help anyone.” James Daniel, an organizer with ANSWER, said he remembers the U.S. being at war his whole life. “I remember us invading Iraq and finding out there was no reason to for us to be there. We have the same political coalitions today calling for a similar war in a country that borders Iraq,” Daniel said. ANSWER was also critical of how Trump introduced the military action to the public. Joel Gallegos, an activist with ANSWER said, “Tweeting that he’s going to attack another country proves that Trump is completely inept. He was in the race for

Tank and Bangas impress with multitalented performance By Colton Newman @Coltonperson

Before making their 2018 appearance at Coachella, Tank and the Bangas made a boisterous stop at Santa Fe Brewing Co., just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Tank and the Bangas, led by the ever fascinating Tarriona “Tank” Ball, gained a huge fan base due to their recent appearance on an episode of NPR Tiny Desk Concert as a result of winning the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest. Tank and the Bangas’ appearance on the NPR Tiny Desk has over 4.4 million views as of April 14, placing them in the top 10 most viewed Tiny Desk concerts on NPR’s YouTube channel, just under the likes of Hozier, Adele and T-Pain. On their NPR performance Ball and her band were dressed in bright pastel colors, with their performance moving many audience members in the NPR office to tears. During the Tank and the Bangas sold-out April 10 concert in Santa Fe, they brought the same emotion from their NPR performance, but drastically switched up their presentation. Ball and her band took to the stage wearing dark clothing and an attitude that wouldn’t quit, a complete 180 from what was expected. Ball herself wore a 90s-esque Selena Quintanilla concert shirt, appropriate because from the first step onto the stage Ball radiated confidence — she knew she was in charge for the rest of the night.

Colton Newman / @Cnewman101/ Daily Lobo

Tarriona “Tank” Ball of Tank and the Bangas performs at Santa Fe Brewing Company on April 10, 2018.

Days after Tank and the Bangas’ performance, it’s still hard to place exactly what genre of music they fall under. During their hour-anda-half show, Ball and her merry band of ever-talented companions hopped from spoken word poetry, to R&B to hip-hop to jazz to funk and even rock’n’roll when they performed a flawless, show-stopping rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” With only one true album from 2013, “Think Tank,” it’s hard to believe how fresh and current Tank and the Bangas’ songs felt.

One second Ball was belting out a smooth gospel-like tune and in a blink of an eye she’s spewing a hundred words a second. Then, just as easily, she switches her voice to mimic a child singing an innocent melody. As versatile and captivating as Ball’s performance was, the rest of the band shined equally as bright. Each member of Tank and the Bangas was at the top of their game, switching genres and instruments as easily as Ball was switching up her own style. Albert Allenback, who played

alto saxophone and flute was by far one of the most attention-grabbing members of Ball’s collection. Allenback made his alto saxophone sing for an hour straight. He proceeded to make the flute cool when he seamlessly incorporated it into jazz, hip-hop and rock songs. The audience that jam-packed the Santa Fe Brewing Co.’s venue was as diverse as the music being performed. It’s clear that Tank and the Bangas’ appeal is spread far and wide. Audience participation seemed to be expected by Tank and the

Bangas as the band split the audience into three groups and would every so often call out the number of a group and encourage them to cheer. Along with cheers and support from the audience, many members of the front row were given the chance to belt out a lyric or two into the microphone, and toward the end of the night a particularly excitable audience member was invited to join Tank and the Bangas on stage to have a mini dance party. As the night drew to a close, Tank and the Bangas pulled out one of their most beloved songs, “Rollercoasters.” “Rollercoasters” is a five-minute-long look at the rush people get when riding a rollercoaster and comparing that lack of thrill to a person’s lack of love. With half spoken-word poetry and half goosebump raising vocal melodies, there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience. It’s clear that Tank and the Bangas is a talented bunch with more than enough musical capabilities to move an audience.With their fan base growing by the day, it’s only a matter of time before non-fans run into their music and fall in love with the multitalented group.

University Advisement Center changes its name By Danielle Prokop @ProkopDani The University Advisement Center changed its name to the Exploratory and Pre-Professional Advising Center, which went into effect on April 1. Manager of Academic Advisement Marlene Sanchez said the name change was appropriate to better describe the mission of

the center. EPAC serves undecided students, non-degree or pre-health sciences, interested in pursuing career paths, such as dental hygiene, emergency medical sciences and nursing, according to the website. “We’re not just advisement for campus. Everybody has their isolated advisement center. I think when students and staff saw ‘University Advisement’ (they

thought) we would provide advisement throughout the whole campus, and that’s just not the case,” Sanchez said. She said the name change also reaches out to make undecided and non-traditional students feel included on campus. “The exploratory and undecided students, I think, didn’t really feel like they had a place on campus in the past,” Sanchez said. “We

want them to feel like they are a part of UNM, and we have a track for them.” She said this might help “normalize” someone exploring their options and being undecided on their major, as there is a lot of pressure to choose a major when beginning a college career. “We want them to be successful and feel comfortable when coming to advisement,” Sanchez said.

She said she also wanted to emphasize that students are aware they will receive the same services as before. “We’re still the same advising center, just a new name,” Sanchez said. Danielle Prokop is a freelance reporter with the Daily Lobo. She can contacted at or on Twitter @ProkopDani.


UNM organization promotes entrepreneurship By Annie Edwards @annie_ce18 The University of New Mexico Entrepreneurs began in 2016 as a chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization and has since grown, hosting workshops, talks and creating a space for those interested in entrepreneurship. “Entrepreneurship isn’t a billionaire business owner or someone who makes business deals every day. Entrepreneurship is a characteristic defined by people who want to make a difference in the world,” said Juan

Unger, one of the lead marketers on UNME’s board. In 2017, UNME held a Fireside Series, in which the group invited speakers to present and share their experiences. The group hosted the CFO of Meow Wolf and the director of economic development for the City of Albuquerque, UNME President Mike Sanchez said. “(The speakers) stick out to anything (else) you will experience around you, and in the long run will inspire you to pursue great things within the world,” Unger said. One of the goals UNME set for this year is to promote entrepreneurial learning and provide a space

to build business, Sanchez said. “We also host and live stream the UNM Business Plan Competition and co-manage the Studio G Accelerator, both statewide programs for economic development,” he said. The UNM Business Plan Competition is hosted by the Anderson School of Management and is a seven-month process in which students make a plan for launching their own startup, according to the competition’s website. As posted on UNME’s Facebook page, UNME hosted and live streamed a startup financial boot camp for the UNM Business Plan

Competition this February. UNME began the semester by holding a spring kickoff Feb. 7 and at the beginning of this month, met with the CNM Entrepreneurship Club and the Young Innovators Group. Both events are shared on UNME’s Facebook page. “We are the creators of opportunity, and with this opportunity, it’s important we teach and explore the various ways we approach our ideas. A lot of times people don’t know where to start, causing men and women to shy away from greatness,” Unger said. “UNME’s mission is to bring together the entrepreneurially

minded from all across UNM and Albuquerque for learning, community and building businesses,” Sanchez said. The group typically meets at 7:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Student Union Building Isleta room, according to UNME’s Facebook page. Annie Edwards is a culture reporter for the Daily Lobo.

UNM launches survey on sexual misconduct By Mikhaela Smith @MikhaelaSmith18 The University of New Mexico is in the process of collecting data for the 2018 College Climate Survey on Sexual Misconduct. UNM has been conducting the survey annually since 2015 — it aims to help college campuses understand how many students are experiencing things like sexual harassment and gender discrimination, as well as how effective the school’s resources and reporting policies are, said Heather Cowan,

UNM’s Title IX coordinator. The survey is emailed to randomly selected undergraduate students between the ages of 18 and 24 who attend classes at UNM’s Main Campus, she said. Students who participate have the opportunity to win prizes, such as Amazon gift cards and Lobo merchandise. This year’s survey opened on March 26 and will close on May 14. The results are expected to be available in Fall 2018, Cowan said. Climate surveys are important for understanding the needs of UNM students, she said, adding that one of the of the main takeaways from past surveys is the need

for bystander intervention training at UNM. “One of the positive things we noted from our climate surveys at UNM is that a lot of our students really want to intervene when they see someone in danger or when they hear jokes that are derogatory or perpetuate rape culture, for example,” Cowan said. UNM’s 2017 Campus Climate Survey was launched to a total of 7,234 undergraduate students, and scores were based off answers from 736 eligible participants that partially or completely answered the survey, according to the survey’s 2017 executive summary.

The results found that UNM students experienced low rates of sexual and dating violence for the 2016-2017 school year. However, the survey also found that 59 percent of students reported receiving no bystander training. Thanks to this information, Cowan said UNM is now working to create a social norm marketing campaign focused on bystander intervention that will start next fall. So far, the response rate for this year’s survey is at 10 percent. She said it is important for more students to participate in the survey, because it gives a better representation of UNM’s student population.

“Last year there was only a 10 percent response rate,” Cowan said. “What we would really like this year is a higher response rate, because with a lower response rate it is harder to extrapolate. The folks who answered are only semi-representative of more of the student body.” Mikhaela Smith is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo. She can be contacted at or on Twitter @MikhaelaSmith18.

Women’s Basketball

Two new transfers replace exiting players By Cameron Goeldner @goeldfinger Two out, two in. Just days since it was announced that N’Dea Flye and Jasmine Smith would not return to the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team, head coach Mike Bradbury has already found a use for their vacated scholarships. On Wednesday, the program announced the addition of Nike McClure, a graduate transfer from Washington State University. On Thursday, it added Ahlise

Hurst, a freshman from Bendigo, Australia. McClure stands at 6-3, and will provide the Lobos with some additional depth in the paint behind rising senior Jaisa Nunn. McClure is a native of Tenino, Washington and will be eligible immediately for the Lobos since she has earned her degree. A highly rated prospect coming out of high school, McClure averaged 5.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in 28 games this season. She holds the Washington State single season record for blocks with 68 during the 2016-2017 season. She also holds

the Pac-12 record for most blocks in a game with 12. “Nike brings us an experienced and versatile post player,” Bradbury said in a release. “She is a strong rim protector and rebounder. We connected right away in the recruiting process and her personality will be exciting to coach.” McClure announced her decision with a post on social media. “I’m extremely excited to announce that I will be finishing my college career at The University of New Mexico,” McClure said on social media. “Can’t get over how much I already love the

team and staff. Looking forward to next season.” Hurst comes to the Lobos from Bendigo Secondary College, has featured for the Australian National Team at the U17 level and has been named to the U18 team for the FIBA Asian Championships. “We are excited about the addition of Ahlise to our program,” Bradbury said in a release. “She’s a skilled scorer that has high-level experience. We expect Ahlise’s offensive repertoire to be a perfect fit in our uptempo system.” Hurst played in the Women’s National Basketball League last

season as a member of the Bendigo Spirit. With the additions of Hurst and Bendigo, the Lobos have one open scholarship remaining for next season.

Men’s soccer

Lobos revisit the past in alumni match By Ajinkya Patil

@ajinkyapatil_16 The past, present and future from University of New Mexico men’s soccer team gathered to play its annual alumni game on Saturday. And after showcasing speed, energy and sharpness in their play, the current Lobos outscored the UNM Alumni squad 5-2 to win the match. “Today was a fun game. Our alumni are very good players,” UNM head coach Jeremy Fishbein said. “They weren’t as fit, but it was fun to see everybody play, and for our guys to realize they are part of something bigger.” With the score tied at 1-1, the alumni put together some good moves of their own to find the second goal as they headed into halftime. After a combination of passes, alum Luke Lawrence found himself with a goal scoring

chance — but his shot was only able to force a save from the goalkeeper. Just a few minutes into the second half, the current Lobos strung together a series of passes from the 18-yard box and scored their second goal of the game to move out in front. A few minutes later, the current collection of Lobo talent was on the offensive again. Nick Taylor played a quick one-two and fired a shot that rattled against the post. Unfortunately for the alumni, the rebound fell to Taylor again and he buried the ball into the back of the goal to make it a 3-1 game. UNM collected another pair of scores to run its goal count up to five. The old guard fought back late in the game as the alumni tried to mount a comeback, scoring a consolation goal and cut the deficit to three — but that is where the score remained when the match ended as the former Lobos lost 5-2.

Having played against Phoenix Rising FC, the Pioneers from Denver and Air Force before the UNM Alumni game, the Lobos had been outscored 10-1 overall in the spring— losing the matches by scores of of 4-1, 3-0, 3-0 respectively. Fishbein said he doesn’t look at the games as a whole, instead he observes where the team is getting better, learning and maturing. The head coach said overall he was content with the performance of the team as a unit. He said the spring schedule has been a good learning lesson, which could be a good thing as the new additions to the team get to work out the kinks in sort of a makeshift preseason. The Lobos could be viewed as a team in transition, but Fishbein said he expected things to look much different, especially offensively. He said he thought the team was “poor in the attack last year”, but have

addressed those concerns and have quality attacking players moving forward. With the final two games of spring against UC Irvine and San Diego State looming on the calendar, Fishbein said things will continue to be different than they are in the fall. He said they are matches where the team won’t have video and a scouting report on its opponent. Fishbein said he and the UNM players will have to find the balance between defense and picking spots in which to attack. “There is growth, I like the pieces that I see out here,” he said. “It’s going to be really competitive next year.” Ajinkya Patil is a freelance sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.

Nevada sweeps Lobos in three-game series By Matthew Narvaiz @matt_narvaiz

The University of New Mexico baseball team was swept by the Nevada Wolf Pack over the weekend in Reno, Nevada, as they lost all three games. On Friday in the series opener, the Wolf Pack (20-13, 14-4 MW) dismantled the Lobos (12-21-1, 6-12 MW) in a 15-2 victory. Nevada held UNM to just four hits while striking out nine Lobos during the game. In the process, sophomore pitcher Justin Slaten gave up seven

hits and six runs in his 4.1 innings on the mound. The second matchup of the series on Saturday saw the Wolf Pack defeat the Lobos again, though that game was much closer than the first — with Nevada edging UNM by a score of 5-2. Nevada scored two runs over the first two innings, before New Mexico was able to tie things up at two runs apiece in the top of the seventh on an RBI single from sophomore Justin Watari to score the first run. That was followed up by a sacrifice fly from freshman Brayden

Merritt, in which freshman Connor Mang was able to tag up and score from third. But the Wolf Pack added three more runs in the bottom half of the seventh to take home the victory 5-2 win after both teams were held scoreless in the final two innings. On Sunday, the Wolf Pack dominated UNM from wire-to-wire — much like game one of the series, capping a sweep of the Lobos with a 14-1 blowout win. The Wolf Pack put six runs on the scoreboard over the first two innings of game three and the lead

swelled to 13-0 before UNM was finally able to plate a run. That run came at the top of the sixth inning, when junior Jeff Deimling got on base on a two out single before being driven home on a triple from Watari. But the lone run was the only one the Lobos were able to score in the game. Sophomore pitcher Drew Gillespie, who got the start on the mound for UNM, did not have the best of days. Though he struck out three Nevada hitters and didn’t issue a walk in the game, Gillespie gave up seven runs on eight hits in

just three innings. The Lobos cycled through four pitchers in the series finale. Freshman Robert Gasser, who came in as relief for Gillespie, had a rough go of things as well — giving up six runs on seven hits and issuing two walks. Things settled down a little after Nathaniel Garley came on in relief. He threw 2.2 innings of scoreless baseball and struck out three. The Wolf Pack was able to add an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth with Christian Tripp toeing the rubber.

SWE president pushes past “imposter syndrome” By Sarah East @saraheast67 Editor’s Note: This story was originally published on Feb. 12 in the New Mexico News Port, under the headline, "SWE President Pushes Past ‘Imposter Syndrome,’" written by Sarah East. This is part of our project to help connect the Daily Lobo audience to more members of our community. “There’s a lot of struggle with imposter syndrome and feeling like you’re not up to par with your peers, even though you are and that can be difficult,” said the Society of Women Engineers President Maria Kelly.

Kelly pushes past “imposter syndrome” and utilizes her position to help give other girls in the science technology engineering and mathematics program a sense of confidence. Since high school, Kelly knew she wanted to have a career in STEM. “I really enjoyed my math and science classes, and I was always an academically motivated individual, so I was looking forward to the challenge (of ) going into engineering,” Kelly said. The University of New Mexico senior is studying chemical engineering with plans to graduate in May, she said. Currently Kelly leads UNM’s SWE chapter to focus on conference

travel, professional development and community outreach, she said. Kelly participated in extracurricular activities in high school and felt like it was natural to join the women engineering group at UNM, she said. “As I started getting involved, I really fell in love with it,” Kelly said. “I loved the idea of giving back to the community and taking time on weekends to instill that same perspective and interest in young girls in the community.” According to UNM’s SWE website, they aim to provide the community with a strong support system available to all STEM students. “I know a lot of people in SWE

who have faced the stigma of ‘women can’t do engineering,’” Kelly said. Emily Hopkins manages public relations for the SWE chapter. She said she can relate to Kelly’s struggle with imposter syndrome. “The other day, someone came up to me and told me that I was one of the smart kids in class, and I was feeling like I was one of the dumb ones,” Hopkins said. “It’s just a weird misconception that girls tend to have, and I think a lot of girls have that issue of having confidence.” Keeping girls interested in STEM is one of Kelly’s goals in SWE, she said. Kelly said she wants to be a role model, showing that a woman can be interested in science and math.

“In elementary school, girls are just as interested in math and science as boys, but once they hit middle school, something happens, and the rate of girls being interested in STEM drops dramatically,” Kelly said. “We want to make sure we reach out to young girls in the community and high school students to make sure they know there are girls and women in STEM.” SWE hosts general meetings, socials and other community events. There is also more information about their organization on its website. Sarah East can be contacted on Twitter @saraheast67.


“Tyler Perry’s Acrimony” suffers from bad writing By Timber Mabes @timbermabes “Tyler Perry’s Acrimony” does not live up to its trailer. With the movie’s tagline being “hell hath no fury,” I went into the theater expecting to sit through a drama about a wife’s actions after she learned her husband was cheating. Maybe she would threaten to reveal his secrets to everyone he knows, maybe she would leave


from page

him for her girlfriends or another man. All I knew from the tagline was that she was going to “bring hell.” I did not get what I expected. Instead I sat through a movie with a ridiculous plot whose drama genre would be better classified as fantasy because of how impossible and overly dramatic the characters and their actions were. Released on March 30, “Tyler Perry’s Acrimony” was directed, produced and written all by Tyler Perry himself. The film starred Taraji P. Henson as Melina, who

is seen sitting dramatically in the movie’s poster, Lyriq Bent as Robert and Crystle Stewart as Diana. Tyler Perry, these characters are not real people. Perry made his female character act as if she was pathologically insane. As a woman, I was somewhat insulted as the characterization was so shocking. Having also created his series of Madea films, I believed that “Tyler Perry’s Acrimony” had real potential to be a good movie, but the absolutely ridiculous screenwriting made the film hard to follow and

honestly, somewhat uninteresting. After it lacked an initial wow factor, I was waiting for there to be an amazing scene, a mind-blowing plot twist, for the film to just make a little more sense — but it never really did. Once I realized that the film wasn’t going anywhere, it was hard to sit through it until the end and it was intellectually frustrating. I cannot emphasize this enough: the film was absolutely not worth the price of a ticket. Even if you have already seen everything else in the theaters and

are looking for a theater trip, do not waste your money here. If you just have to see it, wait until you can rent it on Redbox or Amazon. The most you will get out of this movie is some humor from how crazy the plot and the characters’ actions are. But please, don’t set your expectations very high. I definitely should have expected less.
