ate assistants earn an average minimum stipend of just $14,438 per year and struggle with lack of access to medical care and inadequate protections from harassment,” University graduate worker officials wrote in a press release issued on Nov. 23. The current appeal was filed in the Second Judicial District court, along with a motion to stay, which would halt the Union’s ability to take legal action to improve working conditions until the case is decided. Dina Holcomb, the lawyer representing the University, said in the motion that doing this would “avoid unnecessary expense of public resources.” However, the ongoing legal battle that the University has chosen

The University of New Mexico filed a notice of appeal against the New Mexico Public Employee Labor Relations Board on Nov. 19, in which they hope to overturn a decision from August that granted UNM graduate student workers the right to unionize. The United Graduate Workers of UNM are a part of the larger United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) and have been fighting for better health care coverage, higher wages and increased influence over University-wide decisions. “Despite long hours teaching, researching and grading, gradu-

MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Educators’ mental health worsened by pandemic pandemic as educators have been dealing with an increased amount of mental health issues. “Teachers’ jobs — stressful even before the pandemic — have become even tougher, with longer work hours, struggles to engage students remotely, repeated pivots from hybrid to remote to in-person instruction, not to mention fears that they — or their loved ones — could get COVID-19,”

Education Week reported. The pandemic brought a forced mix of personal and professional lives when teaching in a remote, online environment, according to Tracey Briggs, supervisor of Employee Wellness at the University of New Mexico. “You can’t separate your two lives. You’re working and you’re living your personal life in the same place … It’s a huge responsibility to be doing so many things at once. It’s tough to try to fulfill two jobs,” Briggs said. Elon News Network reported that many professors have suffered from abrupt transitions to virtual education formats. Elon University professor C.J. Fleming said “it’s like being a new professor every semester.” “Fleming — who specializes in clinical psychology and mental health — said she has noticed two main things when considering professors’ mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic: fatigue and capacity for working memory,” Elon News Network reported. “She said fatigue is probably what has affect-

ed her most, since she has had to reformat many of her consistently taught classes to fit an online or hybrid format.” For every COVID-19 death, research from the U.S. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that nine people are left mourning. In addition, the pandemic has left many with losses of time and experience as well, according to Student Health and Counseling case manager Margaret White. “You don’t really get over it so much as you learn to walk forward with it,” White said at the start of the semester. Briggs said the investment that staff and faculty have in their students can be especially wearisome during the pandemic as everyone experiences so much stress. “There’s such an investment made not only by the faculty but the staff that want to see these young people go out into the world and make a difference. So that creates a lot of pressure, a lot of stress, because you want them to do well and

it kind of rests on your shoulders to see that happen,” Briggs said. Employee Wellness offers personalized programs for different departments as well as one-on-one consultations. The department also sends out their LoboWell newsletter weekly, which has content on “nutrition, fitness, well-being, financial and positivity.” More articles can be found on UNM’s Human Resources webpage as well. Briggs’ guided meditations can also be found on the HR page, which range in both time duration and topics so people can easily choose what best fits their schedule or interest. “We are here to make the experience from the minute you sign the acceptance letter at UNM to be an employee … through to the last day of work, when you retire, the very best, valued experience during your life cycle in your career as possible,” Briggs said.

to pursue has already cost them nearly $130,000. This includes paying Holcomb, who makes an hourly wage of $185. Bargaining committee member Ramona Malczynski said the notice of appeal is firing up Union members. There were at least 35 graduate unions across the country as of 2018, according to the Graduate Labor Organization. “We're not going anywhere because we know we need these changes desperately. So (this appeal is) just going to drag out this process for everyone and they're going to continue wasting tens of thousands of dollars,” Malczynski said. On Nov. 23, members of the graduate worker’s union went to Los Poblanos after a notice of potential quorum was released announcing that UNM Board of Regents mem-

bers would be there for lunch. The Union hoped to hand-deliver a letter asking the Regents to urge the UNM administration to withdraw the appeal. However, of the Regents that Union members spoke to there, none agreed to the Union’s request.

“It is disappointing that the UNM administration continues to ignore the law and devalue the labor of graduate workers,” Jens Van Gysel, a linguistics graduate assistant, said in the Nov. 23 press release. “The labor board, elected

leaders, community members and more all support our right to unionize. It’s time for the UNM administration to do the right thing and bargain a contract.” UNM marketing and communications officer Cinnamon Blair said the University’s action is not a reflection of how they value graduate students’ work. “Because of the importance of these issues to our mission, we feel that a correct and thorough legal examination of the issues is necessary and this is the role of the courts,” Blair wrote in a statement on Nov. 24. Some graduate workers have taken offense to the motion the University has set forth. Long-time Albuquerque resident Malczynski has always been very proud to go to UNM but said this battle the University has been putting up against

said research has shown that there are ties to physical and mental health supporting one another. “I just know that even in my own personal life, what I’ve done in the last 35 years of being physically fit, it has helped my emotional wellbeing, especially at times when I’m super stressed. It’s a great way to release that stress and focus on just letting things go,” Briggs said.

There should be no stigma for getting mental health help, according to Briggs. She said it should be as normalized as going to a doctor with a sprained ankle. “We have forever changed the landscape of our lives with this pandemic so we have to acknowledge that there may be some residual effects of going through it. And recognize that you can and

you really should seek any kind of support that helps you,” Briggs said. Briggs brought up a variety of resources available on campus, including Counseling, Assistance and Referral Services, UNM Health Sciences Center Wellness, UNM Hospital Well-being, UNM Wellness Alliance, UNM’s Mental Health Resources webpage and more. “There’s just so many different

I love being here, but when you consistently see that the University administration leadership keeps dismissing you when you have very real needs, it's very frustrating,” Malczynski said. The Union is planning an upcoming joint action with the Communications Workers of America, the custodial union at UNM, who are also fighting for a living wage.

Student Support Services TRIO director helps marginalized students By Emma Trevino @itsemmatr Dawn Blue Sky-Hill, director of the Student Support Services TRIO program at the University of New Mexico, has been with SSS TRIO for 20 years. In that time, she has helped and mentored students from all walks of life to set them up for success in academia and beyond. According to its website, SSS TRIO’s mission is to “increase the college retention and graduation rates of program partici­pants at the University of New Mexico main campus. The SSS program draws upon a holistic framework where committed participants receive individualized support by ad­dressing their educational and personal needs.” As director, SkyHill helps facilitate this support through coordinating mentors, advisors, tutoring and more. As a UNM undergraduate student, Sky-Hill had a work-study job as a student recruiter working with at-risk high schoolers to “get them to consider attending UNM.” After graduation, she worked at nonprofits doing similar work, helping at-risk and minority youth go to college as well as providing mentorship. In 2001, the position of director of the SSS TRIO program Sky-Hill currently holds was posted and, according to Sky-Hill, the job description fit her resume perfectly; the position described all the things she had done in the past. Her familiarity with UNM’s campus was also a plus, as she not only attended as an undergrad, but she was a senator for the Associated Students of the University of New Mexico as well. “On my first day on the job, I was handed a packet of paper, and it was the proposal, and they basically told me, ‘Here’s your program; get it started,’” Sky-HIll said. “I asked them, ‘Do I have a staff? Do I have an office? Is there a phone system?’ and I was informed there was nothing.” The SSS TRIO program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education. While it

had existed at UNM previously, it was formatted completely different from the proposal the University gave to Sky-Hill, meaning that she had to start the program from scratch. With the information that the program she was hired to run didn’t exist, Sky-Hill told herself that since she had started similar programs in the past and she had knowledge of UNM, starting the program seemed doable. However, when she wanted to learn more about the federal rules and regulations of the grant, she ran

into problems immediately. “There was nobody on UNM’s entire campus who was familiar with the (SSS TRIO) grant proposal in terms of its policies and guidelines,” Sky-Hill said. “At that point, I just told myself I will have to become the master of this information because it does not exist.” Sky-Hill attended federal TRIO program trainings at every opportunity possible to learn the program inside and out, and she made it a point to find mentors in the TRIO community

because there was no one at UNM who could provide her with that guidance. “Over those (early) years, it was a lot of learning to get the program up and running,” Sky-Hill said. “But I committed myself to the program, to get it going. It definitely was a hard couple of years but in doing so I’ve learned (a lot) experience-wise.” Avelina Martinez, friend and mentee of Sky-Hill, commended her for always being an available, willing mentor and guide as Martinez tried to get her footing as the

SSS TRIO director at UNM’s Taos branch herself. “When I started, she already had 10 to 15 years of experience as director, and so she was always someone I could turn on to call and help me navigate TRIO legislation and regulation from the Department of Education perspective, but also how to navigate the UNM system working as the awardee with the TRIO grant,” Martinez said. Martinez said Sky-Hill is “constantly looking for how she can develop students through her program.” She emphasized Sky-Hill’s dedication to helping the students that come through SSS TRIO. Sky-Hill said she sees herself in “those students coming from rural communities” who are often first-generation students without a lot of money and who experience imposter syndrome. Her experiences as an underprivileged student herself made her even more committed to the students she works with today, and she feels invested in their long-term success. “When I began working with the students, their personal stories and challenges and accomplishments really meant a whole lot to me,” Sky-Hill said. Martinez said a big part of what Sky-Hill and her team at SSS TRIO do is guide first-generation college students in navigating a four-year campus and help them ask the right questions so they can achieve their goals. “Dawn has compassion, and to be able to work in an environment that’s constantly changing to support students from marginalized backgrounds is incredibly important,” Martinez said. “When you’re working with a TRIO student, you need to … be able to see the whole student and have understanding and patience.” Emma Trevino is the culture editor at the Daily Lobo.

REVIEW

‘House of Gucci’: Ridley Scott’s latest is anything but chic By John Scott

@JScott050901 This review contains spoilers Upon the release of the first photos of Adam Driver and Lady Gaga as Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani, to say expectations for “House of Gucci” were high would be an understatement. With a cast like that and legendary director Ridley Scott at the helm, it seemed like a Hollywood dream come true. That is, of course, until you watch it and you slowly realize that an all-star cast, a big budget and a beloved director will not save you from creating something that is utterly lifeless and entirely boring. The film mainly follows Patrizia and Maurizio as they ascend the ranks of the Gucci empire, ulti-

mately culminating in their separation and Maurizio’s inevitable assassination at the hands of a hit man hired by Patrizia. Gaga largely entertains as the confident and backstabbing Patrizia, but her performance is often bogged down by an awkward script and strange directorial choices. Combine that with Driver’s performance, who seems almost as bored in every scene as I was watching this movie, and you’re presented with a film that will garner the occasional chuckle but will largely serve to baffle and confuse you. Speaking of directing, the film is only another painful reminder that Ridley Scott (“Blade Runner,” “Alien”) is years past his prime, with his choices making some scenes nearly unwatchable. It’s as if Scott forgot that he was directing a movie and relied solely on his actors to pick up whatever weight

he refused to carry. One small example of this is when we’re first introduced to Jared Leto’s Paolo Gucci. We’re given a sweeping crane shot of the backyard of a large house with a group of men tackling each other and rolling around in the grass playing some sort of game. Instead of stopping the camera here where all of our main characters (Gaga, Driver, Leto) are located, the camera just keeps going and stops to hover over an empty banquet table. It makes no sense. That isn’t the only strange camera movement in the film. The cinematography throughout is simultaneously bizarre and stale, with there being not a single memorable shot in the entire film. Through every scene, it feels as if Scott and the crew were simply trying to shoot every scene as quickly as possible so they could just move on and be done with

REVIEW

‘Tick, tick ... BOOM!’: Andrew Garfield explodes in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s latest project By Emma Trevino @itsemmatr This review contains spoilers

“Tick, tick … BOOM!” the featurelength film and directorial debut of Lin-Manuel Miranda that was released on Netflix mid-November, owes its greatness to two factors: Andrew Garfield and Jonathan Larson’s ingenious eponymous play. “Tick, tick … BOOM!” is an adaptation of a semi-autobiographical musical created by playwright Larson, creator of Broadway smash hit “Rent.” Garfield stars as Jonathan, an aspiring, struggling playwright trying desperately to get his foot

in the door of show business with a futuristic rock opera. While the character may teeter on the edge of the tortured artist archetype, Garfield’s sincerity shines through, preventing too many clichés. Going into the film, I wasn’t optimistic. I didn’t like anything Miranda has been involved with before and assumed “tick, tick … BOOM!” would carry the annoying flair he seems to impart on everything he touches. However, the plot and music were so cohesive and strong together that I almost forgot Miranda directed it (which is a good thing). The chronology of “tick, tick … BOOM!” was confusing for the first half hour or so. Because of the

film’s structure, songs were being performed from Miranda’s musical itself as well as the musical Jonathan is producing. This confusion thankfully melts away to reveal a borderline-manic writer too zoomed in on his impending birthday to see the more important things in life. Jonathan has a dancer girlfriend named Susan (Alexandra Shipp), who loves him but can’t deal with his extreme behavior surrounding the completion of his musical. A similar relationship breakdown occurs with best friend Michael (Robin de Jesús), but the two are ultimately able to sustain the friendship. Garfield has proven himself to be a reliable dramatic actor in the past,

the film already. This is combined with the fact that the color palette is unbearably dull and may as well be in black and white. There are actually a few moments where the film does gradually switch to black and white but, every time it happened, I didn’t even notice because of how muted the colors were. One thing I will compliment the film on is how it portrays Patrizia. While she certainly guides Maurizio in a very Lady Macbethlike way, it’s ultimately Maurizio who ends up becoming cold and unkind towards Patrizia for seemingly no reason. It helps the audience sympathize more with Patrizia and gives more justification to her decision to hire someone to kill her husband. With that said, the story is still largely uninteresting, which comes as a huge surprise considering that there is so much

dramatic potential here. Any potential, though, is squandered by Scott’s extraordinarily absent directing and painfully slow pacing. The slow pacing results in a film that is two and a half hours long, which wouldn’t be terrible if it weren’t for the fact that the movie does not justify this runtime at all and could have easily been 30 minutes or even a whole hour shorter. Ultimately, “House of Gucci” is a painful viewing experience. The directing, acting and visuals are all remarkably bad and disappointingly stale. The film feels like a counterfeit; while it may have all of the elements of a good film, it’s still so far from the real thing.

receiving critical acclaim for his roles in “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Silence,” but it’s only now in “tick, tick … BOOM!” that we’re seeing his true abilities. Garfield glides from impassioned to defeated and from laughing to sobbing with such ease and grace that I would have no trouble believing this was actually Larson. Perhaps the biggest delight was hearing Garfield sing. Not only is his tonal quality terrific, but the songs he performs feel molded to his voice. There are gentle, simple piano melodies and expertly crafted rock ballads that Garfield performs without a hint of strain. Whatever the tune, it’s evident to anyone with ears that Garfield trained intensely for this role. The theme of time is hammered home in several aspects of this film. Jonathan fears getting older without being successful, which remains his biggest concern throughout the film. He repeatedly mentions that Stephen Sondheim had his first Broadway show before 30 years old, and the constant tick, tick, tick in the background reminds us that Jonathan’s time is running out. Another aspect of time in a more serious sense is HIV. Near the start

of the film, Jonathan’s HIV-positive friend and fellow waiter Freddy (Ben Levi Ross) ends up in the hospital. Later, when Jonathan finally finishes putting together the presentation of his musical, it’s Michael who reveals himself as HIV-positive. The commentary on the struggles of gay men in the early 1990s is overt, but underlying commentary on societal norms regarding money and relationship power dynamics is present as well. These subtle nods to what Larson wanted to do with his work give the viewer even more context for his game-changing musical “Rent.” Feeling burned by Miranda in the past, I was sure “tick, tick … BOOM!” would end up on the long list of stuff I hate. This feeling quickly subsided and I was pleasantly surprised and moved by Garfield’s technical and emotional performance, both as an actor and musician. Let’s hope Garfield stays in a musical mood for years to come.

UNM falls to Utah State, ends season 3-9 By Spencer Butler @SpencerButler48 On Friday, Nov. 26, the University of New Mexico football squad was defeated 35-10 by Utah State University at University Stadium in the final game of their disaapointing season. The loss sends UNM into the offseason riding a four-game losing streak, while the team finished 1-6 in conference play and 3-9 overall. UNM was forced to start Bryson Carroll at quarterback, though he has previously played mainly as a running back. Running back Aaron Dumas and wide receiver Luke Wysong did not play; both Dumas and Wysong are freshmen who head coach Danny Gonzales pulled out in order to save for offseason work.

“In an effort to continue to build this program, decisions for guys like Aaron Dumas and Luke Wysong are made so they don’t go out there, (get hurt), and then we lose them and we can’t get better,” Gonzales said. The Lobos failed to score in the first half, while Aggies quarterback Logan Bonner burned a UNM defense that played well at times and was shaky at others. Bonner threw four touchdowns total just in the first half, including a 76-yard bomb to wide receiver Derek Wright. Utah State cooled down in the second half, which, after the game, Gonzales said he felt was the opposing head coach being “a good guy” who refused to run the score up. UNM managed to score a field goal in the third quarter and one touchdown late in the fourth. UNM ends the season with the

130th-best offense in the Football Bowl Subdivision, which is last in all of the FBS. Gonzales lamented the end of a difficult season after the game but reassured fans that the team is still on the right track. “Even though I know it doesn’t look like it in the results that we are getting, we are making progress as a football team,” Gonzales said. As for what the immediate future holds, Gonzales said that he is excited to get the team in the weight room, something that they were previously unable to do due to COVID-19 restrictions. Gonzales also said the evaluation process for the coaching staff will begin immediately and didn’t rule out changes in the offseason. “It’s my job as the head football coach to evaluate every aspect of this program, from equipment training,
