UNM: No. 181 in college rankings by Ardee Napolitano @ArdeeTheJourno

UNM slipped two spots on an annual best universities list, but some university officials have shrugged off the ranking. U.S. News and World Report ranked the University as number 181 in the 2014 edition of its Best Colleges Rankings. Results were based on data it gathered from the universities during the spring and summer. In this year’s ranking, the University fell two spots after placing 179th nationally in the magazine’s 2013 edition. New Mexico State University, on the other hand, was ranked at number 190. Princeton University garnered the top spot this year. But UNM Provost Chaouki Abdallah said he is “no longer convinced that (U.S. News) provide an important comparison scale.” He said the study put more importance on input factors, such as the high school standings and ACT scores of the incoming freshman class, rather than output factors, such as where students end up after graduation. “Due to such methodology, the only public university that ranks in the top 20 is the University of California, Berkeley, at number 20, and no more than 13 (public universities) rank in the top 50 schools,” he said. Abdallah said UNM’s rank is misrepresented by the magazine because of how many universities tie in their rankings. “There may be five universities

tied for rank 12, and 10 tied for rank 34,” he said. “If you were to group the universities by ranks, since those within the same rank are presumably similar, then UNM’s rank is 55 overall, along with eight other universities.” According to U.S. News and World Report’s website, it gathers for the study “data from and about each school in up to 16 areas related to academic excellence. Each indicator is assigned a weight (expressed as a percentage) based on our judgments about which measures of quality matter most.” The magazine then compiles a weighted composite score for universities and ranks the threefourths of all universities that scored the highest. The remaining lower-ranking universities are then labeled “second-tier” or “rank not published.” UNM’s rank has been consistent in the past, Abdallah said. He said that although the University rose above NMSU this year, “such comparisons are truly meaningless.” Still, Abdallah said that although the magazine’s rankings are not perfectly accurate, he still thinks that good publicity is essential for the University. “This and similar rankings are the window through which some students become aware of us, and I know that we will continue to improve in all rankings based on our own strategies,” he said. “In other words, these rankings are not a goal for us, but they do represent one lens through which we are compared to similar institutions.” UNM President Robert Frank said he doubts the significance of the rankings. “They change these rankings in terms of magazine sales, so it’s hard to be too excited about these rankings,” he said. “I think that these are not fair. I think UNM is more prestigious than that what it gets credit for. These rankings are not the best measure of a university’s caliber or quality in my view.” Frank said the rankings “do not have scientific basis,” and that it is irrelevant whether UNM rises up in the ranks in the coming years. “It depends on what they do to sell the magazine next year,” he said. But UNM has gotten good reviews from the same magazine’s best graduate programs rankings in the past, Abdallah said. He said the magazine ranked UNM’s rural medicine graduate program as the second best in the country. Abdallah said he is unsure whether UNM’s rank will rise or fall next year. But he still believes that the ranking is not an accurate measure of the University’s achievement, he said. “By ranking according to different criteria, UNM rises or falls compared to its peers,” he said. “Rankings only matter if they reflect our values, and they should be placed in context.”

Art contest returns to UNM Student revives tradition of juried art exhibition by Ardee Napolitano @ArdeeTheJourno

After decades, UNM’s art arena reopens to showcase student projects, and to vie against each other for prizes. Paintings, photographs and other artworks were displayed in the John Sommers Gallery in the Art Building Friday night as part of a juried art exhibit. The exhibit was the first at UNM in about 20 years and featured 37 undergraduate student artists. The 37 exhibited students were selected from a pool of 100 — only three walked away with an award. The exhibit runs through Friday. Rob Rix, a third-year MFA student in sculpture who organized the show, said he was excited to bring back a long-lost art tradition on campus. “Nobody currently working here remembers it happening in the time that they’ve been working here … I decided that it was time to bring it back,” he said. Rix said he decided to bring back the show because he believed no one would have done so otherwise. “I decided to bring this back for the same reason that I wear a tie to work every day,” he said. “I believed that nobody else in the department was going to do it. During the time that UNM has eliminated its standard for juried show, almost every other university in the country adopted it as a standard.” Rix said he contacted David Leigh, a UNM art alumnus, to serve as the judge for the show. Rix said 100 students participated in the event. Each was allowed to submit three art pieces,

so Leigh had to choose from 300 pieces in total. Planning the event singlehandedly, Rix said he was even willing to pay for the event himself. “Originally, I was actually using my paycheck from the department to finance the prize money and fund the food,” he said. “But the chair got back to me. (On Thursday), I received a phone call saying the department would be reimbursing me in full for the prize money of the show.” Among the 37 individuals featured, three winners were selected in the show. The first-place winner received $300, the second-place winner $200, and the third-place winner $100. Rix said the show represents the wide array of art programs offered by the University. “We have representatives from each area: sculpture, painting, photography, printmaking,” he said. “We also have individuals who are in their first semester as freshmen to individuals entering their final year in the program.” Leigh said he based his decisions for winners on “craftsmanship, first and foremost, and beyond that, just trying to get somebody really engaged in contemporary issues and trying to visualize interesting ideas. I was just trying to find things I was excited about.” Despite his schedule, Leigh said he found the time to jury the show because he believed in its essence. “I was honored to be asked,” he said. “It was a question of whether I had the time. I made the time because it’s really important to try to capture the energy of undergraduate students and to sort of give them an opportunity to show themselves off to each other.” And he expects that the juried

show will become a campus tradition again, he said. “I think that whenever something like this could gain traction, it creates a tradition that people could look forward to every year,” he said. Raquee Rivera, a sophomore majoring in photography, said she participated in the show “on a whim,” and that she was shocked to see her pieces in it. She said that being featured in the gallery might help her in her career path. “I think of it as a little minigoal,” she said. “Maybe it will help me on the future. Maybe they would like that, maybe they won’t.” Jeremy Wood, a senior majoring in art education, said he is proud of himself for winning a spot in the gallery. “There’s a sense of accomplishment,” he said. “I’ve never really gotten myself to think that I’ll be in a gallery, and now I’m in a gallery.” Rix said he believes the show will help young artists in their future. “It gives them a real-life opportunity to apply to a show but in a more comfortable way,” he said. “There are a lot of juried shows that happen in the country, and it’s kind of a standard for artists to participate in a show, either getting rejected or accepted.” And he is optimistic that there will be another juried art show next year, he said. “There’s a gallery position here that they’re going to be attaching the responsibility to,” he said. “So it will continue every year for as long as it lasts, hopefully — hopefully forever.”

If students thought senior year of high school was the last chance to enjoy all the revelry and fun of homecoming, they were wrong. Pep rallies, games, dances and the homecoming court elections have arrived at UNM. Fourteen men and women are in the running for a crown, a diverse group of students from different groups and majors, all of whom are hoping to win the title of homecoming king or queen. Candidates have been shaking hands, Tweeting and creating Facebook events for their campaigns and participating in recent ASUNM events as part of their plan to win students’ favor and their votes. Students who wish to cast their opinion can do so on the main floor of the SUB Wednesday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., next to the Welcome Desk. As only undergraduate students are eligible to run, only undergraduates are eligible to vote. The top three candidates for both titles will be announced Friday between noon and 1 p.m. at the Homecoming All-Sports Pep Rally in the SUB Atrium. The final crowns will be placed Saturday night at the Homecoming Game at the UNM Football Stadium. Hopefuls are required to meet several requirements: They must be enrolled in at least six credit hours, carry at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA and not be on any University probation, as well as be an undergraduate student on main campus.

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Opinion Editor/ John Tyczkowski/ @JCTyczkowski


Media misrepresents Pope Francis interview Editor, The Jesuit magazine “America” published an interview with Pope Francis. During the 12,000-word interview, Pope Francis commented on artificial contraceptives, abortion and homosexuality. Pope Francis stated that the Catholic Church cannot talk about these issues all of the time. In regard to these subjects, he stated that the primary focus must be on respecting the dignity of the person and not on condemning the sinner. These comments caught the media’s attention. They made it appear that Pope Francis is possibly changing the teaching of the Catholic Church on these often divisive issues. The media’s presentation of Pope Francis’ words is far from the truth. All one has to do is examine the Catechism of the Catholic Church in order to understand Pope Francis’ words. The Catechism is 825 pages. The subjects of abortion, homosexuality and artificial contraceptives make up several pages of the Catechism. So obviously, these subjects are not talked about all the time. These subjects are presented within the overall context of the Christian religion. The subject of Christian marriage makes up larger sections of the Catechism, especially in the sections on creation, where God made human beings as male and female, in the section on the sacrament of marriage and the section on the commandment “thou shall not commit adultery.” Within the overall context of God’s plan for marriage, the subjects of artificial contraceptives, abortion and homosexual acts are discussed and outright rejected as contrary to Jesus’ teachings on marriage. Pope Francis is articulating that the church’s moral teachings on certain issues must be presented and understood within the larger context of God’s creation and Jesus’ Gospel. Only in this context do the church’s moral principles find their foundation. Pope Francis stated that the primary focus of the church must be on the dignity of the person. This is an expression of Jesus’ attitude toward humanity, which was one of love, mercy and salvation. One of the greatest examples of this is Jesus’ actions toward the woman caught in adultery. The scribes and Pharisees told Jesus that a woman caught in adultery must be stoned. Jesus replied, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7). After this, the people left without injuring the woman. Jesus concluded the incident with these words, “Neither do I condemn you.  Go and from now on do not sin anymore.” (John 8:11). The reason many people fail to understand Pope Francis and the Christian religion is because they fail to understand Jesus. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners by bringing them into union with God. God loves human beings and out of his love he offers mercy and forgiveness. Here is the part of Jesus’ message that many people ignore: It is also out of love and concern for human dignity that he calls us to repentance and conversion, which is to stop sinning and to turn back to obedience to God.

Dr. Peg’s Prescription Flu shot campaign honors past UNM student

“After Raymond died, some people thought I should get over it. But you never get over the death of a child,” Elaine Plotkin told me. Elaine’s son Raymond was a freshman at UNM in the fall of 2009, the year the H1N1 flu took the nation by surprise. Raymond got his regular flu shot on time, but unfortunately the vaccine did not yet cover the new strain. Even as the CDC scrambled to create a vaccine for the deadly H1N1, Raymond contracted the new flu, and in spite of heroic work by UNMH medical staff, H1N1 took his life. He was just six weeks shy of his 19th birthday. Elaine and Ronnie Plotkin don’t want any more parents to lose their children to flu. They started a flu shot awareness campaign called “Take One for Raymond.” “We are providing Raymond a living legacy by lending his story,” Elaine said. Their efforts in New Mexico and Texas and across the country have resulted in many people getting immunized who never did before. This means a lot to the Plotkins, who are acutely aware that the flu does not discriminate. “Our intent is not to scare anyone,” Elaine said. “We want to raise awareness and get people to at least think about getting a flu shot.” Every year since Raymond’s death, Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) has dedicated its flu shot clinics to the young engineering student. This year, we have a very special addition to the event. Raymond’s parents are flying in from Texas to help anyone who wants to participate in

w a r D e!


me pical e v i and gething to som y! to sa

“Take One for Raymond” this Wednesday and Thursday. Raymond would have graduated from the College of Engineering this past May. His father, Ronnie, flew to Albuquerque from their home in Texas to attend the graduation ceremony. Ronnie had not been here since his son was in the hospital. He sat silently in the auditorium as Raymond’s name was read and his story shared before the actual graduation ceremony began. That ceremony took place over Mother’s Day weekend, and Elaine was not quite ready to return to Raymond’s home away from home. She stayed in Texas, not far from Raymond’s older brother, Jason and sister-in-law, Aliza. “Since Raymond died, our lives have taken a different path than they would have,” Elaine said. Grieving has been a difficult process, but “we have made progress,” she said, thanks partly to their involvement with Compassionate Friends, a nonprofit organization that brings together those who have suffered the death of a child. Raymond died on a Wednesday, was buried in Houston on Sunday, and the Plotkins attended their first grief support meeting with Compassionate Friends on Tuesday, two days later. They have become very involved with the organization, to the point of Ronnie serving on a panel at the national conference in Boston this past July. “It’s a club no parent wants to belong to,” as Elaine describes it. Compassionate Friends has been deeply important to the Plotkins, although, of course, “I would give it all up in a minute if Raymond could


be here,” she said. Elaine is ready to come to UNM now. She and Ronnie see visiting Raymond’s beloved university as an important part of their grieving process. But they are also coming “as a tribute to Raymond” and to lend a hand with the “Take One for Raymond” flu clinics. They will be here Wednesday and Thursday, helping to sign up the hundreds of students, staff and faculty that regularly take advantage of the free immunizations. The Plotkins, who also established an engineering scholarship in their son’s name at UNM, won’t be getting their flu shots here. They already took one for Raymond. Dr. Peggy Spencer is a physician at Student Health and Counseling. She is also coauthor of the book “50 Ways to Leave Your 40s.” Email your questions directly to her at All questions will be considered, and all questioners will remain anonymous.

Jerome Romero


Program manager works to fight fetal alcohol syndrome

For about two decades, Jerome Romero has been raising awareness of the dangers of consuming alcohol during pregnancy. As program manager for UNM’s Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse and Addictions, Romero focuses on preventing fetal alcohol syndrome, which happens when women drink alcohol during their pregnancy. “I go around statewide and I promote UNM,” he said. “I work a lot with high school students educating them about fetal alcohol syndrome. It’s a good fit. You’re promoting health and wellness and you’re also promoting going to school, graduating from high school and going on to college.” And his work progresses, as Romero was appointed as the acting director of UNM’s Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention two weeks ago. Romero, 52, has worked at UNM for 17 years now. Born and raised in Santa Fe, Romero graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from New Mexico State University in 1986 and has worked with the state’s Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. New Mexico has a major problem with fetal alcohol syndrome, Romero said. He said the affliction causes mental retardation and physical deformation in a fetus. “A fetal alcohol syndrome brain is 30 percent smaller than a regular baby’s brain,” he said. “The alcohol concentrated in that brain when it was developing, and eventually, the brain cells, when they had to migrate into the brain, there was alcohol there. The brain cells had to go somewhere else. When the alcohol evaporates and leaves the brain, it just leaves empty spaces.”

Rachel Toraño-Mark / Daily Lobo And awareness is key, Romero said. That’s why he said he travels around the state to talk to high school students about the condition and to encourage them to moderate their alcohol intake. But Romero said that through his positions at the University, he aims to focus on preventing alcoholism in the state in general. “I know we’re one of the leaders in the United States with our alcohol problems,” he said. “The more you have alcohol more readily available, the more you’re going to have people abusing it. So the more information we can get, the more preventive things that we can do.” To do this, he said COSAP provides designated-driver programs, which provide participants discounts at restaurants and free movie tickets. He said COSAP also holds “Alcohol 101” lessons in fraternities and sororities and distributes handouts and brochures on available programs.


Romero said that in the future, he aims to make COSAP more visible to students. He encourages the University community to find out more about his office and the programs it offers. Besides his positions at UNM, Romero has also worked in television. But he said the industry was too hectic for him, especially when he had to start a family. “Working in the TV station is pretty fun,” he said. “I got to go into balloons, fly in helicopters … But working in the TV business took time away from your personal life. You’re always on call. It was just really, really busy.” Romero said he has lived all of his life in the state. And he loves it, he said. “You have great weather,” he said. “You experience the elements.” ~Ardee Napolitano @ArdeeTheJourno

Fans and supporters of the Albuquerque Comic Expo will be donating and fundraising alike this month to participate in the all-new ACE Kickstarter forum. Fans who donate $5 or more will be given access to the Funder’s Forum, an entire network of other fans and participants who are looking to voice their ideas and collaborations for the upcoming convention. ACE, which happens every June, will be a completely fan-produced event this time around. The convention will now be a “convention for the fans, by the fans,” said ACE Director Greg Derrick. Monday marked the first day of the fundraising. ACE has a $10,000 goal. At press time, $1,831 have been pledged. But the contributions that fans make aren’t reflective of how much they are able to participate in the open forums — pitch $5 or $500 and you have the same voice in the planning process. However, fans who donate to the Kickstarter are given other benefits depending on the amount of their donations. For the next 30 days of the fundraiser, Derrick will be creating a schedule for which

participants can vote, discuss and collaborate in the Funder’s Forum. According to ACE’s Kickstarter page for the project, the Funder’s Forum will include Google Hangouts and access to ACE multimedia content in addition to polls and comment threads.

“This is our show, we planned this convention and it isn’t just some event going on in Albuquerque.” ~Greg Derrick ACE director “The biggest challenge will be handling how we present which guests we are able to bring down and basically communicating with the funders the process in which we go through to get our guests to come,” Derrick said. “I think that guests are going to be the biggest part of the entire process.” The fan base, however, is still given an opportunity to voice their ideas directly. In prior years, an open discussion has been held at the end of the convention so fans can let Derrick and other ACE staff know what they liked and what

they didn’t like. This time around, fans will be implementing what they want to see and ultimately what they will see when the convention actually happens. “I really hope that people actively participate in the Funder’s Forum process because I think that it’s something that people will really take pride in. They will be able to say ‘This is our show, we planned this convention and it isn’t just some event going on in Albuquerque,’” Derrick said. Brandy Yeazell, a participant and volunteer at previous ACE conventions, said she was optimistic about the success of the Forum. “Albuquerque is a very tightknit community and everybody knows everybody. Having this personal, community-oriented input will be fantastic,” Yeazell said. “Greg Derrick is really a fan of everything. He tries so hard to please everyone with the quality of people that he brings in.” Guests are not the only factor that fans will be voting on. Pitching ideas on activities and various selections will also be on the agenda. ACE will take place at the Albuquerque Convention Center June 27 through June 29. Potential contributors can find information about the Kickstarter at The fan forum will not begin until the fundraising goal is successfully met.
