FAITH GROUPS GATHER TO PRAY FOR SYRIA Photo and story by Steve “Mo” Fye

About 30 members of the UNM community collected near the Duck Pond Tuesday night for a gathering called “Spread the Light: A Candlelight Vigil for Syria.” The vigil, hosted by the Canterbury Campus Ministry, was intended to bring together community members of all faiths to pray for peace in Syria and for the Syrians who have been killed, injured or displaced during the civil war. Reverend Dr. Lin Lilley, interim priest at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church, said that the students at the campus ministry felt strongly about the unrest in Syria and wanted to pray for the victims of the turmoil in the Middle East. “They were tired of just listening to bad news, and wanted to do something,” Lilley said. “We just came out and asked others to join in prayer.” Maddie Carrell, the organizer of the vigil, said she wanted to make sure anyone, of any faith, felt welcome to join in prayer. Erin Watson, from the UNM Pagan Students Group, made a short presentation and prayer for peace, and representatives from other campus groups spoke as well. A number of religious groups from the community could not send representatives, but sent statements

that were read to the group. Father John Barton, a retired Episcopal priest, quoted Don Quixote and the song “The Impossible Dream” from the musical “Man of La Mancha.” He then asked those gathered to pray silently and “dream in your mind what Syria would look like

if there was peace.” He said that “this hope is bigger than one religion; It’s as big as humanity.” Nursing student Steven Russell was one of the participants at the vigil. He said he simply wanted to lend his prayers in hopes for peace. Rev. Lilley reminded the crowd

that Saturday, Sept. 21 is the United Nations Day of Peace, instituted in 1982. In 2002, the World Council of Churches declared that day the Annual Day of Peace, she said. She invited everyone to take a moment of personal prayer on that day and convince others to do the same.

Other groups represented at the vigil, whether by a speaker or by a message read to the group, included the Catholic Apologetics, Wesleyan House, the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and Mission of Maitreya: Eternal Divine Path.

UNMH recognized for joint care, education by Chloe Henson @ChloeHenson5

After years of replacing hip bones and patellas, the UNM Hospital has finally gained recognition for its work. The Joint Commission, a not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more

than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the country, awarded a certification to UNMH for its hip and knee replacement programs at the end of July. Rachel Landavazo, program director for the UNMH Total Joint Replacement Program, said the Joint Commission awarded UNMH a “disease-specific

certification,” which recognizes a certain standard of care. “It basically states that our hospital has put forth the effort and the time to make sure that all of our total joints receive a certain standard of care, a gold standard, and they’re certain it’s all evidence-based medicine,” she said. “It’s recognizing that we have

excellence of care in our joints.” Landavazo said the commission assessed UNMH on different factors such as performance improvement measures and standardized protocols. She said the certification is important because it helps to standardize care and develop patient education. “There wasn’t a lot of patient education before we took on this endeavor, and now we offer a total joint class,” she said. “Before you come in to have your knee replaced or your hip replaced you have an education class on what to expect, what you should be doing, and then you often meet with physical therapy and occupational therapy.” Rachael Brown, a unit-based educator at UNMH, said the class played an important role in obtaining the certification. “I think that to be able to achieve the certification, we have to show that we’re educating the patients,” she said. “I think actually it’s the education that helps the certification.” Brown said the classes at UNMH have “definitely” been effective in educating patients. “The patients are much more aware of what they’re about to go through and the rehab efforts and the part that they need to take,” she said. “Working with physical therapy, how to manage their own pain — they’re learning all of that from the education class.”

Brown said the certification shows UNMH has credibility. “It shows the public that the quality of care that we provide is justified by an outside source,” she said. “It’s not just us saying ‘We’re great, we’re qualified to take care of these patients.’ It’s the Joint Commission.” Landavazo said the Joint Commission also requires the hospital to select performance areas for improvement. “That’s what the certification looks at, too,” she said. “You pick this, you think this is important, you have to explain why you think that it’s important and then you need to maintain improving it over the course of two years.” The four areas UNMH focuses on for the certification are pain management, length of stay, education and surgical practices such as use of antibiotics, she said. Landavazo said the hospital needs to maintain its standards and improve on its practice to keep its certification. “TJC will come back in two years and make sure we’re maintaining everything that we claimed to maintain at the beginning and that we’re continuing to improve,” she said. “We can’t get the certification and say ‘OK, we got it, we’re done.’ … If you don’t show improvement, then you could lose the certification.”

with him and his wife from August 2012 to May 2013 in Fort Worth, but that they had to part ways because he wasn’t paying his bills. Alexis was a “nice guy,” Suthametewakul said, though he sometimes carried a gun and would frequently complain about being the victim of discrimination. Suthametewakul said Alexis had converted to Buddhism and prayed at a local Buddhist temple. “We are all shocked. We are nonviolent. Aaron was a very good practitioner of Buddhism. He could chant better than even some of the Thai congregants,” said Ty Thairintr, a congregant at Wat Budsaya, a Buddhist temple in Fort Worth. Thairintr said Alexis told him he was upset with the Navy because “he thought he never got a promotion because of the color of his skin. He hated his commander.” As Thairintr and others at the temple understood, Alexis took a job as a contractor and he indicated to them he was going to go to Virginia. He last saw him five weeks ago. “He was a very devoted Buddhist. There was no tell-tale sign of this behavior,” Thairintr said.

In the early 2000s, before he moved to Seattle, Alexis lived with his mother in an apartment in Queens, N.Y., said Gene Demby, of Philadelphia, who said he dated one of Alexis’ younger sisters at the time. He said Alexis and his two younger sisters had a difficult relationship with their father, who divorced their mother in the mid-1990s. “I wouldn’t call him nice, but he seemed harmless, if really awkward,” said Demby, the lead writer for NPR’s Code Switch blog about race and culture. “He was insecure. He was like a barbershop conspiracy theorist, the kind of guy who believes he’s smarter than everyone else. He also was kind of like perpetually aggrieved, but not megalomaniacal or delusional.” Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which offers online courses in aviation and aerospace, confirmed that Alexis was enrolled as an online student via its Fort Worth campus, started classes in July 2012 and was pursuing a bachelor’s of science in aeronautics. “We are cooperating fully with investigating officials,” the university said.

Report: Craigslist scam duped student On Sept. 12, police were dispatched in response to a UNM student’s report that she had been scammed online. According to the report, the woman said she received a check in the mail after responding to an ad on Craigslist and then cashed the check. The woman then allegedly sent a similar sum of money to an out-of-state address via Western Union. After she did so, the woman’s bank notified her that the check she cashed was fraudulent and her account was overdrawn, according to the report. Police assume that the scammers “set up a fake Craigslist ad to scam unsuspecting victims out money utilizing fraudulent checks.” Police are unable to find “viable offender information” at the moment, and the case is closed pending further leads.

Police: Man ejected for threats, abuse On Sept. 15, a UNMH nurse observed a man “speaking in a verbally abusive manner” to a female patient in the patient’s room, according to a police report. The nurse allegedly told the man to cease his abuse, which was also disruptive to the care of other patients on the floor. The man allegedly refused, so the nurse ordered him to leave. The man refused again and acted verbally abusive toward the nurse, according to the report. Eventually, the man agreed to depart, but continued shouting profanities at the nurse, according to the report. As he walked out of the door, the man allegedly threatened the nurse with physical violence. Although no further incident

D.C. gunman was Navy reservist David Crary

The Associated Press

Aaron Alexis seems a study in contradictions: a former Navy reservist, a Defense Department contractor, a convert to Buddhism who was taking an online course in aeronautics. But he also had flashes of temper that led to run-ins with police over shootings in Fort Worth, Texas and Seattle. A profile began to emerge Monday of the man authorities identified as the gunman in a mass shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., that left 13 people dead, including the 34-year-old man. While some neighbors and acquaintances described him as “nice,” his father once told detectives in Seattle that his son had anger management problems related to post-traumatic stress brought on by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He also complained about the Navy and being a victim of discrimination. U.S. law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that Alexis suffered a host of serious mental issues including paranoia and a sleep disorder. He also had been hearing voices in his head, the officials said. Alexis had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation in the case is ongoing. The Navy had not declared him mentally unfit, which would have rescinded a security clearance Alexis had from his earlier time in the Navy Reserves. Family members told investigators Alexis was being treated for his mental issues. At the time of the shootings, he worked for The Experts, a subcontractor on an HP Enterprise Services contract to refresh equipment used on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet network. His life over the past decade has been checkered. Alexis lived in Seattle in 2004 and 2005, according to public documents. In 2004, Seattle police said Alexis was arrested for shooting out the tires of another man’s vehicle in what he later described to detectives as an angerfueled “blackout.” According to an account on the department’s website, two construction workers had parked their Honda Accord in the driveway of their worksite, next to a home in which Alexis was staying. The workers reported seeing a man, later identified by police as Alexis, walk out of the home next to their worksite, pull a gun from his waistband and fire three shots into the rear tires of their Honda before he walked slowly back to his home. When detectives interviewed workers at the construction site, they told police Alexis had stared at construction workers at the job site daily for several weeks prior to the shooting. The owner of the construction business told police he

believed Alexis was angry over the parking situation around the site. Police eventually arrested Alexis, searched his home, found a gun and ammunition in his room and booked him into the King County Jail for malicious mischief. According to the police account, Alexis told detectives he perceived he had been “mocked” by construction workers the morning of the incident. Alexis also claimed he had an angerfueled “blackout,” and could not remember firing his gun at the Honda until an hour after the incident. Alexis also told police he was present during “the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001” and described “how those events had disturbed him.” Then, on May 5, 2007, he enlisted in the Navy reserves, serving through 2011, according to Navy spokeswoman Lt. Megan Shutka. Shutka said Alexis received the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal during his stint in the reserves. Both are medals issued to large numbers of service members who served abroad and in the United States since the 9/11 attacks. Alexis’ last assignment was as aviation electrician’s mate 3rd class at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth, Shutka said. It was while he was still in the reserves that a neighbor in Fort Worth reported she had nearly been struck by a bullet shot from his downstairs apartment. In September 2010, Fort Worth police questioned Alexis about the neighbor’s report. He admitted to firing his weapon but said he was cleaning his gun when it accidentally discharged. He said he did not call the police because he didn’t think the bullet went through to the other apartment. The neighbor told police she was scared of Alexis and felt he fired intentionally because he had complained about her making too much noise. Alexis was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm within city limits but Tarrant County district attorney’s spokeswoman Melody McDonald Lanier said the case was not pursued after it was determined the gun discharged accidentally. After leaving the reserves, Alexis worked as a waiter and delivery driver at the Happy Bowl Thai restaurant in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, according to Afton Bradley, a former co-worker. The two overlapped for about eight months before Alexis left in May, Bradley said. Having traveled to Thailand, Alexis learned some Thai and could speak to Thai customers in their native language. “He was a very nice person,” Bradley said in a phone interview. “It kind of blows my mind away. I wouldn’t think anything bad at all.” A former acquaintance, Oui Suthametewakul, said Alexis lived

E-cigarette ban leads to more tobacco use Editor,

CNM followed UNM in banning the use of electronic cigarettes on campus. I asked Jennifer Cornish, multi-campus director/CNM Connect coordinator, why this was done. She referred me to an article, saying “our decision to include ecigarettes was not taken lightly, especially because the scientific community is still researching their use and effects on individuals who use them and on those around them.” Universities should exercise due diligence before banning substances.  We are encouraged to do our own research before we make up our minds as students, so why does the University get to just read online articles? There are simply no unbiased scientific studies that show e-cigarettes have harmful levels of pollutants. In fact, the data show that the vapors produced are nearly one hundred times safer than breathing alone.  That means you should be banning exhaling air, not e-cigs. I am shocked that a University that promotes learning and doing your own research has succumbed to tobacco industry lies and disinformation campaigns as its source of information.  Shame on CNM and UNM for not doing their own research!

Editorial Board Antonio Sanchez Editor-in-chief

John Tyczkowski Managing editor Opinion editor

Ardee Napolitano News editor

There is one scientific study, by Drexel University, which shows that there are no risks from e-cigarettes. I am shamed by CNM and UNM’s lack of due diligence in this matter, and feel this knee-jerk reaction may directly contribute to higher tobacco cigarette use among the impressionable student body. I wonder how many will die because of this ’nonscientific approach’ to public health. THR is the public health strategy of encouraging smokers to switch to low-risk alternatives like smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes. It is the only proven method for reducing smoking to less than a fifth of the population once it becomes established. CNM is part of the problem, and not the solution here. I successfully quit using all forms of tobacco products; I was a twopack-a-day smoker for 30 years. I just celebrated my one-year anniversary, and it was e-cigs that helped me quit tobacco, on my doctor’s advice. Both UNM’s and CNM’s decision puts the student body at risk for continued use of tobacco products. This harms those who made the difficult decision to stop smoking.  We will now have to vaporize (harmless to others) with smokers, and smell like tobacco smoke while inhaling harmful second-hand smoke. Thanks, UNM/CNM, for putting my health first. Bryan Bowling UNM alumnus, ex-smoker

For-profit power is unsafe by Matthew Brown

As of September 16, Japan has shut down the last of its nuclear power plants for an indeterminate amount of time pending safety inspections. Due to public pressure, they do not have a set reactivation date; right now, nuclear power efforts are effectively in limbo as the Japanese government decides what to do about the nation’s nuclear reactors. Anti-nuclear proponents may rejoice, but as of now Japan must fall back on fossil-fuel burning plants to close the power deficit left by the shutdown of those plants. Even with the recent issues with Fukushima, including the release of contaminated water into the Pacific, nuclear power still prevents more deaths than burning fossil fuels as an energy source. Nuclear power, when properly operated with an eye toward safety and responsibility, is safe: the U.S. Navy’s nuclear fleet has never had a nuclear-related incident since launching the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, the U.S.S. Nautilus, in 1954. 5400 reactor-years’ worth of operating time have accumulated without an incident. Yet, we can all recite incidents that have happened at civilian plants. Three Mile Island. Cherynobl. Fukushima Daiichi. Leaving aside the Ukrainian plant — it’s something of a given that Soviet reactors weren’t welldesigned back then, for those who know a bit about the topic — we’re left with Three Mile Island and Fukushima at the top of everyone’s minds. What do these two incidents

have in common versus the track record of the U.S. Navy? They were run by businesses. Businesses have influenced several poor decisions in the nuclear field. From building a nuclear power plant atop a landfill in Michigan to keeping a failing plant active at Three Mile Island, resulting in a meltdown, businesses have caused the majority of modern nuclear incidents through negligence and the desire for cost-effectiveness at any price, especially when that price is safety. Three Mile Island is famous for releasing radioactive gas into the atmosphere — all due to improper training of its personnel and a lack of proper instrumentation in the control room to display exactly what was going on. Business should have no hand in this industry. Properly operated and run, nuclear power is safer, less polluting and more reliable than fossil fuels for power generation. Nuclear has caused fewer deaths worldwide, even including the various Soviet failures, than fossil fuel plants. The greatest pollutant that an average nuclear plant injects into the environment is heat — their coolant systems are designed to dump excess heat, often into nearby rivers. However, through the use of cooling towers — the tall towers billowing steam — this heat transfer is minimized. Fossil fuel burning also produces thermal pollution, but the black smoke coming out of their towers isn’t steam, but instead excess carbon being blown into the atmosphere. It has been theorized that nuclear power, through its limited usage across the world, has prevented 1.8 million deaths

from air pollution caused by coal and other fossil-fuel burning power plants. It should come as no surprise that businesses are perfectly willing to contaminate for a buck. Back in 2011, the Business Roundtable, a group of CEOs, fought against the Environmental Protection Agency’s attempts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, claiming them as harmful to their industries — which, in corporate speak, means that it ate into their bottom lines. To put it another way, it was perfectly fine for them to poison our world just so long as they could profit from it. As such, for-profit companies should have absolutely no business involving themselves in the nuclear power industry. The Tokyo Electric Power Company, the operator of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, is a publicly traded, for-profit company, and has routinely made a point of withholding information about the state of the incident, not talking about nuclear power incidents until long after the moment to do something about them has passed, and has constantly downplayed the damage to the reactor and the results of their loss of control. The desire for another dollar directly contrasts with the principles that should be guiding the nuclear field: safety first. Nuclear power has the potential to be clean, safe and plentiful, but it also has the potential for abuse at the hands of those who would rather make another buck, who already have a history of abuse, not only with nuclear plants, but with various forms of power generation and manufacturing worldwide.

Players receive suspension by Thomas Romero-Salas @ThomasRomeroS

On Tuesday, the New Mexico football team announced that sophomore defensive linemen Gerron Borne and Paytron Hightower have been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. Head coach Bob Davie was noncommittal on the details of what Borne and Hightower did to warrant the suspension, but said that both players won’t be seeing the field for the rest of the season. “It was the right decision for us, and hopefully as time goes on they’ll realize it was the right decision for them as well,” Davie said after practice on Tuesday. “I’m not even going to revisit their situation until the season is over. It was indefinite suspension, but the definite is that it won’t be over until the season is over.” Davie found out what Borne and Hightower did himself, and said he had no choice but to suspend both of them. “I have to identify it; I can’t just let things sit and fester,” Davie said. “Some guys can maybe look the other way and hope things disappear. I’ve never been able to do that.” Davie said the suspensions of Borne and Hightower won’t affect the Lobos’ defensive line rotations. Senior nose tackle Jacori Greer might go to end and Nik D’Avanzo could become the starting nose tackle, Davie said.

The only other player who might be affected by the suspensions is Dominic Twitty, who the Lobos intended to redshirt this season, Davie said. A week off For the first time in the Davie era the Lobos will have a bye week. Last year UNM played 13 consecutive games and finished 4-9. “It’s important only if we use it to our advantage, though,” Davie said. “I think it can be a great thing because we’re a team that has played three different kinds of games.” The Lobos (1-2) have one more week off beginning Oct. 23.

entered Pittsburgh as the nation’s leading rusher, but he left as the 16th most productive rusher at 122 yards per game. Against the Panthers, Carrier had 22 yards on seven carries. After a stagnant first half UNM had just 5 net rushing yards, but Gautsche and junior running back Crusoe Gongbay ignited the Lobos’ running game in the second half, finishing with 208 yards. UNM now ranks 17th in rushing offense with an average of 267 yards per game. Senior punter Ben Skaer ranks 16th in the nation with an average of 44.7 yards per game.

Ruggers come back hard by Kyle Tomasi The University of New Mexico Rugby Football Club has struggled the past three years, but things are finally looking up for the team. “We are just starting to emerge from the muck this year,” Lobo rugby player Keith Keller said. “We have a new coaching staff and many new players. We have high hopes with this bunch, and plan to bring the rugby club back into the USA rugby spotlight.”



Martinez said. “We would also like to have a fan base and grow that.” The club generally meets for practice three times a week at Johnson Field. This is also the site for most home matches. “The rugby competition is played in both the spring and fall semesters,” Martinez said. “Intercollegiate play is primarily scheduled in the fall semester and requires substantial travel obligations.” Each member of the club must pay dues for both semesters.

Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Casino owner R.D. Hubbard and his wife Joan Dale donated $500,000 to the Lobo baseball team for a new clubhouse, UNM announced Thursday. According to a release, the donation is the largest to date for recent renovations to Lobo Field. The clubhouse, pending UNM Board of Regents approval, will be named after the Hubbards. The clubhouse will feature locker rooms, restrooms, a training room, storage and a players’ lounge, the release stated. Ground on the new facility next to Lobo Field is scheduled to break in early 2014. So far, Lobo Field has seen $3.5 million in upgrades.


“I am blown away by the incredible generosity of R.D. and Joan Dale,” UNM baseball coach Ray Birmingham said. “Our ballpark has received an incredible facelift over the last year and the new clubhouse is the next step in completely upgrading Lobo Field.”

ball field. Players wear no protective equipment, but there is tackling just like in football. The UNMRFC can recruit players from in-state high schools, but many of their players have been exposed to the sport at the college level where they learn the sport only once they join, Martinez said. Devon Sanchez, a senior at UNM and president of the club, has been playing for the past four years. “I played football, baseball, wrestling and ran track in high school,” Sanchez said. “The reason I stayed with the club is because of the players and the aggressiveness of the sport. I love trying to hit the guy as hard as possible then having a drink at the end of the day with them.”

Sanchez said he will always continue to play rugby and plans to play for one of clubs in Albuquerque after his collegiate career is done. He is also coaches rugby at Volcano Vista High School. UNM rugby has gained some national recognition, and at one time it was ranked as the country’s seventh favorite sport, Sanchez said. The club mostly plays teams in New Mexico as well as a few teams from Colorado and Arizona. “We expect to be competitive in all of our college matches,” Martinez said, “and when we play non-college clubs we expect to learn and become better players as these teams usually have more experienced players.”

Joe Hartshorne set the old record of 47 in 1970-71. As for field goals, Adams has been shaky, missing his first three to start the season. Adams is 2 for 5 on field goal attempts with both of them coming in last week’s 49-27 loss at Pitt.

The Rugby club finished with two wins and three losses in the pre-season, including a tough

loss to the alumni squad. They are 1-0 in the regular season, defeating New Mexico Highlands.

“It’s a concern right now,” Davie said. “It’s a legitimate concern.” Talking about practice The Lobos practiced in full pads on Tuesday. Davie said the intention was for the young players on the team to gain more experience.

“We’re smart about it (hitting),” Davie said. “We have to do things full speed because … we are so young that we have to see things that happen in a game over and over. The only way to duplicate that is to make it as gamelike and specific as we can make it.”
