Date to reopen library not set CSUF weighing options for Pollak Library South repairs SAMUEL MOUNTJOY Daily Titan
There is still no timeline for the reopening of Pollak Library South, which was closed due to damage caused by the magnitude 5.1 earthquake that struck Cal State Fullerton on March 28. The university is working through its options for repairing the damage, all of which will lead to different timelines for when the library can reopen. The cheapest option, estimated to cost $500,000, would stabilize and clean up the broken portions of the ceiling. After the ceiling is cleaned, the library would only be accessible by library staff wearing hard hats. Library books would only be retrievable through a paging system. Restoring full access to the affected library areas would cost at least twice as much. The existing ceiling would be removed and overhead fixtures would be secured. Replacing the ceiling, which would give a “likenew” appearance to the library, would cost $5 million. Once the university determines an option, estimations will become clearer. The finalized strategy may include a combination of these options or a mix-and-match approach on different floors or parts of certain floors, a university official said. The quake caused an estimated $500,000 in damage to areas other than the library. SEE REPAIRS, 3

‘RENT’ to make a statement at the Becker Arts Week event to offer financial literacy tips to students MICHAEL CHEN Daily Titan
RENT is due at the Becker Amphitheater on Thursday. The performance punctuated by financial wisdom, takes the stage for one day only. The show will have three performances throughout the day at noon, 12:40 p.m. and 5:40 p.m. The performance aims to bring enlightenment to college students about the importance of proper financial management. “RENT: A Financial Literacy Spectacular is a 20

minute adaptation of the Broadway Musical RENT starring 15 freshmen musical theater, acting and dance students from the CSUF Department of Theatre and Dance,” said
Timothy Nathaniel Alexander III, producer of the event. The class of 2013 owes, on average, $35,200 in debt, according to a CNN article. “The bulk of the class of
2013’s debt is in government loans, with graduates owing an average of $26,000. They also had an average of $19,000 in private loans, $18,000 in state loans, $13,000 in personal and family loans and $3,000 in credit card debt,” said Blake Ellis, a writer for CNN. “After realizing the extent of their debt, 39 percent said they would have done things differently— like saving earlier, more thoroughly researching financial aid or looking for ways to save more and spend less while at school— that’s up from 25 percent in 2011,” Ellis said. The reality of the financial situation for many young college students and
graduates is dire. Many college students are uninformed about the financial risks they take, such as high-interest loans, acquiring multiple credit cards and borrowing money to pay for frivolous items while also balancing their busy coursework and lives. RENT is just one part of a series of events taking place during Arts Week 2014 and is a presentation sponsored in part by the Arts Inter Club Council and Associated Students Inc. The event will teach college students how to properly manage their money and handle their loans. SEE RENT, 5
Professor breaks down La Habra earthquake David Bowman, Ph.D., encourages safety measures KYLE NAULT Daily Titan
A Cal State Fullerton seismologist explained what transpired along the fault lines that caused the 5.1 magnitude La Habra earthquake that shook the campus last month and what could lie next for surrounding communities Tuesday during a lecture at the Fullerton Public Library. David Bowman, Ph.D., a professor of geological science and the interim dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, broke down the science behind the March 28 temblor in a comedic and
interactive lecture, providing words of wisdom and caution to the audience. “Anytime that there is an earthquake the fault breaks and it takes the stress (from the epicenter) and sends it somewhere else, but it also decreases the stress in other places,” he said. Using data gathered after the temblor, seismologists have determined that the quake struck near the Puente Hills thrust fault, the same fault that caused the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake. The fault stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles. “(The Puente Hills fault) is one of the most significant hazards in Southern California,” he said. However, Bowman points to a conjugate fault that is most likely connected to
the Puente Hills fault as the primary cause of the recent earthquake, due to a large amount of compression on the Los Angeles Basin. A conjugate fault set is one that consists of cross-cutting fault planes that intersect with one another, and the line parallel to them causes the principal stress. In the case of the La Habra earthquake, the stress is being placed on the basin. “A good rule of thumb is that anywhere in Southern California that you see hill or a mountain, there is a fault there,” he said. “The earthquakes are pushing up the mountains … The Puente Hills fault … we know that there are faults underneath there.” SEE EARTHQUAKE, 3

Meanwhile, in the races for the Board of Directors, it is rare for candidates to spend more than $50 to $100, Haycraft said. More often than not, candidates spend absolutely nothing during their campaigns. This year, 10 out of the 21 candidates bought materials for their campaigns. Six out of those 10 candidates spent more than $50. Adam Shurter, who won a position on the board
to represent the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics, was the highest-spending candidate this year, spending $243.95 on his campaign. David Rosen, who ran to represent the same college, was the lowest-spending candidate, spending $22.78 on campaign materials. Last year, only two candidates, Jonathan Kwok from the College of the Arts and Janet Perez from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, bought campaign materials. Both spent $25 respectively. The highest-spending Board of Directors candidate since 2011 is Yasmin Mata, who spent $788.18 on her campaign. This year also marked a rare occurrence, because all of the Board of Directors positions were filled after the elections. Usually, to fill empty seats, the Board of Directors has to appoint members from a list of recommendations provided by University Affairs. Over the past four years, the winning presidential candidate was both male and a member of a campus Greek organization. This year, either candidate would have broken one of the two trends. Mendoza is female and a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, while Bath is male and not a member of a fraternity.

Current ASI President Rohullah Latif and Vice President Jonathan Leggett spent $4,250 on their campaign. T-shirts and wristbands were the campaign materials of choice this year. Both presidential candidates spent more than half of their total expenses on them. Bath spent $1,760 on 600 T-shirts and 1,600 wristbands, and Mendoza spent $2,169.28 on 500 T-shirts and 700 wristbands. All ASI candidates are required to submit expense reports, regardless of results. Candidates must itemize all donations and expenses, as well as provide receipts and copies of all campaign materials for verification. Most of the time, the amounts listed in expense reports are underreported, because the candidates don’t have enough time to collect all their receipts in time for submission, said Kim Haycraft, the ASI elections commissioner. The deadline for the expense reports is 5 p.m. the Tuesday after the elections, which gives the candidates around five days to compile all their receipts.

Men charged with killings were tracked Two men suspected of killing four Orange County women were wearing GPS tracking anklets at the time of the crimes, according to radio station KPCC. Data from the anklets put Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon in the vicinity of where the four women were last seen before their disappearance. Jarrae Nykkole Estepp, the woman whose dead body was found naked in an Anaheim recycling facility on March 14, is among the victims. Based on the evidence collected so far, there may be more victims, police said. Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas thanked police for stopping what he described as a serial killing. - SAMUEL MOUNTJOY
Man charged in Kansas City shooting The man suspected of killing three people in Kansas City, Kan., was charged Tuesday with one count of capital murder and one count of first-degree premeditated murder, according to CNN. The shootings at two Jewish-affiliated centers left a young boy and his grandfather dead. A woman at a Jewish assisted living facility was also killed. Frazier Glenn Cross is suspected of the killings, which may be escalated to hate crimes. A U.S. attorney said prosecutors are still collecting evidence. Cross faces a life sentence or the death penalty if he is convicted, but it has not yet been decided if the death penalty will be pursued. - SAMUEL MOUNTJOY
Arrest made after Boston bomb scare A man was arrested Tuesday and accused of leaving suspicious packages at the finish line of the first Boston Marathon since last year’s fatal bombing. Boston Police officers detonated two bags as a precautionary measure after evacuating the area. Boston CBS affiliate WBZ-TV reported that at least one of the bags was being carried by a barefoot, screaming man wearing a black veil. He told police he had a rice cooker in one of the bags. Last year at the Boston Marathon, improvised explosive devices made using pressure cookers left three dead and injured more than 260 others. Vice President Joe Biden joined survivors Tuesday for a moment of silence. - SAMUEL MOUNTJOY

Public relations students partner with local charity MATTHEW MEDINA Daily Titan
ELEONOR SEGURA / Daily Titan David Bowman, Ph.D., a professor of geological sciences, explains how to earthquake-proof your home to avoid costly damage during his presentation Tuesday at the Fullerton Public Library.
Explaining science behind local faults EARTHQUAKE Continued from PAGE 1
As the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake this past January evoked memories of the destruction it caused, Bowman said the 1994 earthquake serves as a good model for any new potential Orange County earthquake as it possess eerie similarities to its Los Angeles County counterpart. Both regions are near hills that are created by a series of blind thrust faults. The Puente Hills fault, the fault that can possibly be connected to the conjugate fault that Bowman believes caused the temblors, is considered a blind thrust fault. “It’s called blind because it doesn’t reach the surface,” he said. By understanding the
faults closest to us, Bowman said, the community can better prepare for any upcoming earthquakes in the area.
“A good rule of thumb is that anywhere in Southern California that you see hill or a mountain, there is a fault there.” DAVID BOWMAN Geological Science Professor
However, there’s only so much experts in the field can do to alert the surrounding community, said Kevin Hunter, an undergraduate geology student. “There is no way to
actually see what’s coming next, what’s is going to happen is going to happen, the only way that you can actually prepare yourself is to think ahead and actually think of what can happen, the possibility of what can happen,” he said. Ken Stumpff, a member of Fullerton’s Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.), said it is important for members of surrounding communities to be educated about all of these possibilities. “If we ever have that so-called big one (earthquake) it’s going to be everything short of chaos,” he said. “If the infrastructure is badly damaged, were going to be isolated here, so the thing is, is to be self-sufficient for approximately a week now and look at what you can do in your house to make it survivable.”
Students taking part in a public relations course hope to remind the Cal State Fullerton community of the dangers of Alzheimer’s disease while raising money for a good cause with a raffle Wednesday night. Raffle tickets are $5 each, and 100 percent of proceeds will go to the Orange County chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. As part of the public relations capstone course that Perez and Albento are taking, every student works with Mitsubishi Motors to help the company promote its vehicles. Additionally, student groups are tasked with working with a nonprofit organization and planning an event to raise money.
The five-member group wanted to work with the Alzheimer’s Association because of its frequent involvement with the local community. “I feel like there can be more awareness about (Alzheimer’s), especially on our campus,” said Kendall Perez, who currently serves as the vice chair of the ASI Board of Directors. “We really just wanted to highlight something that does a lot for the community, and we felt that since it affects so many people around the world, that this would be one (organization) to partner up with to raise awareness and also to raise funds to help support.” Cherry Albento, another member of the group, said she hoped the event would make students less apathetic about causes like terminal diseases. “We feel like most college students know about it, but they don’t really want to do anything about it,” she said. “They don’t really know a way to give back,
so we just want to open a door, open another avenue for students to give back.” Attendees can choose to put their raffle tickets toward specific prizes, so they can focus on the prizes they want or that they think are most likely to win. “Say you really want the Quiksilver gift basket, so you put all your tickets in that envelope,” Albento said. The group approached local businesses and retailers for sponsorships and collected prizes, including merchandise from Trader Joe’s, Best Buy and Titan Shops. Some of the prizes include $500 worth of Quiksilver merchandise and a $50 Best Buy gift card. The event is scheduled to take place 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Titan Student Union legislative chambers. Free food and drinks, which will be funded by the group members, will be provided to attendees.

No timetable established for Pollak Library South opening REPAIRS Continued from PAGE 1
Depending on how the university repairs the library, the cost is estimated to be as high as $6 million, totaling $6.5 million in damage to the campus overall. Until it is determined which option will be used to restore the library, it will not be known when the closed half of the library can reopen. Significant portions of library staff have been forced to relocate in the meantime. They have been inconvenienced, but are coping, a university official said. Ingrid Garner, a theatre major and circulation worker at the library, said she is impressed with her coworkers who have helped to restore the library following the quake. Many of the 1.3 million books in the library fell from their shelves, especially on the top three floors, but all of them have been picked up and placed on carts where they can be retrieved, she said. “The main task at hand is putting those books back on the shelves in call number order,” Garner said. “We were getting a lot done at first, when we were first allowed back up there after everything was deemed safe, but now we’re only allowed up there for an hour at the time because the air conditioning has been turned off.” An additional challenge is the fact that the entire circulation department has

been moved to Pollak Library North while repairs are made, she said. The paging system, which fetches books requested by students, has been a frustrating experience for students, but Garner said they have been understanding for the most part. The service has been available for just three days, but a lot of students are using it, she said. The library allots 24 hours for books to be found, and if the requested books cannot be located, they are automatically requested from another library through the interlibrary loan service. As the recovery has

progressed, Garner described the environment as bittersweet. Library employees are bonding through putting the library back together, but circulation workers who are graduating will not be able to see the library return to what it once was. “It continues to be a very long process, and it’s kind of sad for us,” she said. “A lot of us are graduating this semester, so we’re never going to be able to see the library as it was, as we’ve experienced it for the past couple years, because we’ll be leaving.” A full report of the damage caused by the earthquake is expected in the coming weeks.

The U.S. should not incorporate torture techniques in the future A cold metal table presses against someone’s back, the air around smells of musk and bleach and there is a faint smell of blood lingering in the room. The sound of footsteps walking toward the room’s door only increases panic levels. Those footsteps will soon reach the room and pain is surely imminent. This may sound like the description of a serial killer’s room but it is not. This description is akin to that of what would happen in an interrogation room. People that have read a secret Senate report have confirmed the United States used torture for many years. Torture has been used as an interrogation technique on criminals to force them to reveal information. Torture as an interrogation practice was used in 2001 to 2005 by the United States against al-Qaida prisoners. Torture is often seen as a means to an end, but in torturing suspects into giving answers are interrogators becoming as inhumane as those who they harm? There are many different opinions on the use of torture to gain knowledge. Some believe that in any case torture is wrong. They believe harming another person is cruel and there is no redeeming value in it. On the other end of the spectrum, some believe interrogators should do anything they deem necessary
MIKE TRUJILLO / Daily Titan After hours of pain caused by torture, prisoners are likely to say anything to stop the pain.
in order to gain the knowledge they want. A third group believes the circumstances of the crime decide whether or not torture is acceptable. For example, if a person knows the location of a bomb is it appropriate to torture him or her in order to save innocent people? If the decision on torture was situational there would be no way to decide where the line that makes torture acceptable should be drawn. If all that was necessary was a judgement call, the waters would begin to be muddied. Interrogators could begin to use their own personal biases in order to inflict pain on those whose choices they don’t agree with. If a known rapist and murderer walked into the
interrogation room there would be nothing stopping the law enforcement professional from inflicting pain on that person. While rape and murder are in no way acceptable, there are laws that prevent that kind of retribution. In addition to moral issues with using torture, there is also an issue with the validity of information that is gained from that type of interrogation. If people struggle through hours of torture, they are going to say whatever they need to in order to make the pain stop. That puts into question any information that is received through the use of torture. That is why the use of torture in order to gain information should not be allowed under any
circumstance. Using torture in order to force someone to speak would only lower a nation’s law enforcement to the level of the criminals themselves. This would cause civilians to fear the people who should be protecting them. Rather than seeing police officers as protectors they will be viewed as violent criminals themselves. Americans need to rise above the desire to inflict pain on others in order to gain information. America prides itself on being a fair and lenient country. If it becomes acceptable to use torture, those beliefs will no longer carry any value. A country that tortures to get what they want is neither fair, nor lenient.
Plugged In Going Pro ETHAN HAWKES Daily Titan
Last weekend I travelled with Cal State Fullerton’s ROTC battalion to Camp Pendleton to cover one of their biggest training events of the semester. Along with video cameras, notebooks and microphones we brought along the newest addition to our equipment locker, a GoPro camera. These little head mounted cameras are making waves in the extreme sports community, but as someone who operates far out of the realm of sports, this is the first time I even got close to touching one. Turns out it’s not only a great camera, but an amazing piece of technology for putting journalists in the shoes of their source. Journalists frequently need to get into the mind of their subject when trying to accurately capture a person’s personality and attitude. Strapping a GoPro on someone not only gives an interesting view point but a look into what a person is thinking. Watching the videos
recorded over the weekend put into perspective how much these cadets have to deal with on the field. The swearing, the yelling, the heavy breathing and the hand signals put me in the dirty boots of these hardworking cadets. It made me think how important perspective is and how much closer the viewer can feel to the subject when looking through their eyes. BeAnotherLab, a group of students in Barcelona, conducted an experiment with Oculus Rift headsets, which is a virtual reality device, and point-of-view cameras to simulate swapping bodies of people of two different genders. The way it works is two people stand facing away
from each other each wearing headsets and cameras with the headsets streaming the other person’s perspective. In tandem, each person slowly mimics the other person’s movements as closely as possible. Essentially, the illusion is that one person is controlling another body’s actions giving a sense of presence inside another person’s body. Despite the physical gender differences, users have actually felt they were indeed in a new body. “Deep inside you know it’s not your body, but you feel like it is,” Philippe Bertrand, a Digital Arts student and co-founder of the BeAnotherLab, said.
Even if the Oculus Rift wasn’t there, head mounted cameras are still a relatively new way to experience life from a completely new perspective. As they continue to become more affordable, more people will own them and document their crazy activities. I would never drive around on a dirt bike along a steep hill or surf a sweet wave, but now I can get an idea of what it might be like. Hopefully I am never homeless, but a project in San Francisco hopes to give a new perspective on homelessness. HomelessGoPro.com plans to put a GoPro on a homeless man and record his day-to-day life. The website’s goal is to bring awareness to the less fortunate side of San Francisco in a way never done before. My only concern is managing battery life. The camera can only take footage for about an hour and a half before its memory card fills or the battery dies. Only more creative solutions will continue to pop up as these cameras keep getting smaller and smaller. Hopefully it doesn’t get to the point where they become nearly invisible.

Final play of the spring to open Friday Agatha Christie murder mystery to take stage at CSUF michael huntley Daily Titan
A stage adaptation of the seventh best selling book of all time, And Then There Were None comes to the Young Theatre Friday. The book is Agatha Christie’s adaptation of the nursery rhyme, “Ten Little Indians.” It is her best-selling book and second most performed play behind The Mousetrap, which has been running in London since 1952. This is the second time that Cal State Fullerton has produced this play. Director Mark Ramont served as a stage manager in CSUF’s first production of the play in 1978. “It’s a genre that we haven’t done, which is murder mystery,” Ramont said. “We’re also doing it in a film noir kind of style, with gray-tone sets and costumes. We’re even playing with makeup so that when you look at it the idea is that you’re watching a black-and-white film from the period.”
Film noir is a category of crime films that uses dark lighting and music to depict an ominous atmosphere. Creating the feel of a black-and-white film was a difficult task for Ramont and the crew to achieve. “It’s been a good challenge for the design team. We did a lot of testing be-

fore we got to (tech rehearsals) but even with the testing you really never know until you get it out there in front of (you),” Ramont said. The gray-tone set took the designers a lot of time to get it the way they wanted it to look. Kristin Campbell, a second year Master of Fine Arts student, is
the set designer for the production. “If there’s a pen in there (it) has to be colored right … the flowers took five cans of spray paints to make it actually look gray, and those are fun things but they take a lot of time to deal with,” Campbell said. Campbell and the other designers were excited when they learned they would be creating a black-and-white film experience. “When you get a concept like that from a director, it’s kind of a gift,” Campbell said. “When you have such a solid, steadfast idea everyone comes together. So it’s not just sets but sets, lighting, makeup, costumes. We all have to work together because if we don’t it’s just not going to work.” The cast is a mixture of 11 students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts and M.F.A acting program. Natalie Beisner, a senior in the B.F.A acting program, plays Vera Claythorne, a former governess who comes to Indian Island to escape her past. Beisner said the cast has been preparing for the performance since December and started rehearsing in

February. “We watched a lot of Hitchcock films and some Humphrey Bogart films,” Beisner said. “It’s a large cast so (there’s) a lot of ensemble work and listening to each other and really
reacting off each other.” Ramont and the ensemble has enjoyed rehearsing for the performance. “Agatha Christie is fun stuff … The characters are outrageous,” Ramont said. “The hope is that the
audience will have a blast as well and … enjoy trying to figure out who (the murderer) is.” And Then There Were None debuts at the Clayes Performing Arts Center Young Theatre at 8 p.m.

THE DAILY TITAN
APRIL 16, 2014 wednesday
Latest Game of Thrones brings death and loss The episode Sunday introduced new characters to series eric gandarilla Daily Titan
The god of death has smiled kindly on Westeros; Joffrey of House Lannister has died. His drawn out death almost gave the impression he was going to survive his poisoning. But the close up of his pale bleeding face made it certain. The king was dead. His weeping mother, Cersei, was quick to blame Tyrion as the culprit, but it seems highly likely Margaery might have had some part in Joffrey’s death. The entirety of the episode also had plenty of important story beats, although Joffrey’s passing might have left the biggest impact. Prior to the post-wedding party and before King Joffrey took his last breath, Jaime Lannister was planning to train in secret to ensure he would be able to protect the king. It’s almost ironic that Jaime was going to train his left-handed swordsmanship in secret with Tyrion’s guard, Bronn. He wanted to ensure he would be able to protect the king even in his crippled state, but he did not want word of his current incompetence to spread if he trained with the wrong person. Not long after he began training, the very king he wanted to protect died from something a sword could not protect him against: poison. Around the same timeframe, Tyrion lost one of the last things that brought him happiness:
Shae. To save Shae’s life, he ordered that she leave King’s Landing. Since Cersei found out about her, keeping her in King’s Landing would only lead to her death. A handful of characters also made their first appearance of the season. Bran and his mini brigade received some screen time. Bran seems to be enjoying his warg abilities.His conversation with Jojen Reed implied he had been taking control of his dire wolf often. After touching a god’s tree, he saw visions of the past and future. One of which included a dragon’s shadow enveloping King’s Landing. Ramsay Snow is on the hunt for Bran and his brother. He wants to secure the north for his father and earn his spot in House Bolton. Hopefully Bran is ready if they eventually cross paths. It’s difficult not to root for the Stark kids after what happened to their family. Stannis Baratheon and his priestess Melisandre also made a short appearance. They did not contribute much in this episode in terms of their story arc, but considering what they have done in the past season, they will be sure to see a lot more attention as the season progresses. Unfortunately, neither Arya or Daenerys saw any screen time this episode. Hopefully Daenerys sees more progress on her way to King’s Landing on the next episode. Her dragons need to start wrecking some havoc soon. The takeaway from this episode: Underage wine drinking is bad.

WonderCon to hit Anaheim
Orange County comic convention celebrates Batman julia gutierrez Daily Titan
Cosplayers and comic book aficionados will gather for Comic-Con International’s WonderCon Anaheim this weekend. The three-day convention, which celebrates and showcases popular arts, will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center for the third year in a row. For those who were unable to purchase badges to attend the International Comic-Con in downtown San Diego this summer, WonderCon is another opportunity to experience a similar event on a smaller scale. Similarly to Comic-Con, WonderCon will have a game area, artist’s alley and autograph section in the exhibit hall. Each year, the convention spotlights anniversaries of films, comics and
novels. This year’s highlights include the 75th anniversary of the original Batman comics. Additionally, many comic book artists and writers will have spotlight panels at the event to showcase their work and success. In the past, WonderCon attendees have had the opportunity to attend panel discussions about upcoming films, television shows and comics. This year, more than 800 exhibitors will be on site, and dozens of panel discussions will be held each day. The first day of WonderCon Friday will feature Wil Wheaton (The Big Bang Theory, Star Trek: The Next Generation) will join Felicia Day (Supernatural, Eureka) in a panel discussion about the latest from Geek & Sundry–a network online that features various vlogs and web shows related to ‘geek’ culture. The third season of Wheaton’s TableTop, a show that teaches viewers
how to play various board games, will be a topic of discussion at the panel. Other panels on Friday include “Cartoon Network: Regular Show,” “DC Comics: Batman” and many more. On day two of the event, 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. both have presentations scheduled. These panels generally showcase upcoming action, science fiction, horror or fantasy films and the actors who star in them. The content of the presentations has not yet been listed. However, past presentations have featured films such as Prometheus and Pacific Rim. A costume competition known as the Masquerade will also be held Saturday. Cosplayers will boast elaborate costumes from video games, television shows, anime and steam punk. Trophies will be awarded for the best costumes. Sunday is often the slowest day of the convention, with panels being geared more toward professionals. However,
the final day does feature more events for a general audience, including “GEEK Guide to Summer Movies,” “The Nerdist Panel” and, in accordance with a WonderCon and Comic-Con tradition, a screening of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. In addition to discussions and guest appearances, the convention also holds game demonstrations and tournaments. This year, a demonstration of a new zombie-themed game titled “We Are Dead” will be held, along with many others. Pokemon, Munchkin and Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments will also take place. Although WonderCon is only days away, there is still time to buy badges. Badges for Saturday are sold out, but badges for Friday and Sunday are still available to purchase online. A Comic-Con member ID is required to purchase. For more information and a complete schedule of events and programs, visit Comic-Con.org/Wca.

DTBRIEFS Men’s soccer coaching staff adds Aguilar Carlos Aguilar is set to join the Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach. The hiring of the former UC Irvine volunteer assistant coach was confirmed Tuesday. Aguilar will reunite with Head Coach George Kuntz after spending five years together at UC Irvine, three as a coach and two as a player. At CSUF, Aguilar will join fellow assistant coach Adam Reeves, who was retained from former Head Coach Bob Ammann’s coaching staff. In Aguilar’s three years as assistant coach at UCI, the Anteaters compiled a 36-25-5 record, good for a .583 winning percentage. - TAMEEM SERAJ
Taja Edwards hired by USC as assistant Cal State Fullerton women’s basketball assistant coach Taja Edwards is leaving Fullerton and has chosen to accept the same position at the USC. It is a great opportunity for Edwards as she joins a talented USC team that won its first PAC-12 Tournament last year, capping the Trojans first NCAA Tournament berth since 2006. Before her one year at CSUF, Edwards previously was an assistant at Ole Miss for one year. In addition to being a coach, Edwards was a tremendous player in her own right at Fresno State. During her four years, she was part of four Western Athletic Conference titles while reaching the NCAA Tournament all four years. - ANDREW FORTUNA
SPORTS Aces wild for Alexis APRIL 16, 2014 WEDNESDAY
The freshman set the highest win total since 2000 MICHAEL HUNTLEY Daily Titan
Alexis Valenzuela did not grow up playing tennis in country clubs and she did not train with elite coaches. Instead, she practiced her skills at local parks and high school courts with her dad. The freshman tennis star was introduced to tennis when she was 7 years old by her father, Ernie. She began playing in a Covina Parks and Recreation tennis camp. Although she had private coaches, her father has been the main coach throughout her career. Valenzuela’s family has always been supportive of her tennis career. “He’s pretty much been my main coach since I was 7 years old, so he’s always there. My whole family is very supportive. They come to every match whether it’s at home or all the way in Davis,” Valenzuela said. Valenzuela had an incredible high school career. She is the only athlete in West Covina High School history to be named
MARIAH CARRILLO / Daily Titan Freshman Alexis Valenzuela has quickly ascended to the top of the women’s tennis team after posting 14 consecutive victories.
a league Most Valuable Player for all four years of high school. Valenzuela was the San Gabriel Valley Tribune girl’s tennis player of the year twice during her career at WCHS. “Me and my dad, we always set a goal every year. Freshman year, our long term goal was to win league championships four years in a row and an MVP and we did that,”
Valenzuela said. WCHS is known for its successful football program rather than tennis, but Valenzuela’s accomplishments brought media attention to the tennis program. “Alexis is the most talented tennis player we have ever had at this school, girl or guy,” WCHS tennis coach Mark McConville said in an interview
with Time Warner. Valenzuela also played basketball in high school and still plays for fun today. But she chose tennis as her main sport because she likes the individual aspect of it. “I like the individual part of (tennis) because you can’t rely on anyone else but yourself. It’s pretty much just comes from within yourself to win,” Valenzuela said. Winning is something Valenzuela has done her whole career. She won four consecutive Hacienda League singles titles at WCHS. She was a four-star recruit on TennisRecruiting.net and was the No. 41 ranked girls tennis player in California. Valenzuela holds a record of 22-6 in singles competition this season at CSUF. She leads the team in wins with 15 and was named Big West Tennis Athlete of the Week on March 9. She has surprised even herself with the amount of success she has had early in her Titan career. “I didn’t expect for my freshman year to go this well,” Valenzuela said. She had a 14 match win streak this year in singles play, which was snapped Monday after she lost in straight sets to Cal Poly
San Luis Obispo senior Jennifer Cornea. Valenzuela is the youngest of three freshmen on the team at CSUF. Her teammates have welcomed her with open arms. “I’m pretty much the baby of the team. They’ve all been there since the beginning to guide me through my freshman year. They’ve all been really supportive and loving towards me,” Valenzuela said. She said she enjoys playing for first year women’s tennis Head Coach Dianne Matias. “Coach Matias is very positive. She’s always encouraging and just keeps you staying positive and calm throughout your whole match,” Valenzuela said. “Having a coach that’s very supportive and confident (in you) makes you confident in yourself as well.” The regular season is over for the Titans as they hit the court in Indian Wells for the Big West Championships next weekend. Valenzuela will look to lead the team in the tournament. “Hopefully we can get very far in this tournament as a team. And individually I just want to do my part and help the team any way I can,” Valenzuela said.
Edberg makes Fullerton golf history The Swede sunk a birdie in a one-hole playoff for the win JOHNNY NAVARRETTE Daily Titan
Led by Martina Edberg, the Cal State Fullerton women’s golf team concluded its season with a seventh place finish at the Big West Championships at San Luis Obispo Golf and Country Club.

The only team to finish worse than the Titans was Hawaii, which ended with an overall 953. Out of eight Big West schools, only four came into the tournament ranked in the GolfStat NCAA top-100. The Titans were ranked No. 88 with the others being No.

37 UC Davis, No. 75 Long Beach State and No. 80 UC Irvine. The final day belonged to Edberg, who was impressive in her first appearance at the Big West Championships. The freshman won the playoff hole versus Cal State Northridge’s Clariss Guce after the two finished tied for first with an overall score of 217. The native of Sweden shot a 2-under 71 in the final round to secure her best result since her co-medalist finish at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invite held in early March. Her even par 73 in the first two rounds kept her in contention going into the final day. Guce posted her best score in the second round with a 4-under 69, but faltered in the final round. After leading most of the day, Guce shot a 1-over 74 to drop into a tie with Edberg before losing the one-hole playoff. Tisha Alyn Abrea, who
entered the final round tied for eighth, struggled in the final round, shooting a 7-over 80, which dropped her out of the top10. The junior finished tied for 13th with three other competitors. Abrea’s streak of top10 finishes at the Big West Championships ended at two with an overall score of 231. For CSUF, junior Makayla Mier ended up tied for 33rd with an overall 245 while sophomores Dakota Brown and Nadine Rivera each finished in 37th and 39th respectively. In round one, the Titans were in fifth place after shooting a 16-over 308 thanks in large part to Abrea and Edberg who both shot an even par 73 to finish in a three-way tie for second place along with Chaewon Park of Long Beach State in the individual standings. In round two, it was more of the same for the Titans, who remained in fifth place

Despite shooting a 12over 304 in the final round, the Aggies’ strong performance in the first two rounds, including a 294 in the first round, was more than enough for the tournament victory as the team defeated CSUN by 16 strokes. UC Irvine rounded out the top three while host school Cal Poly San Luis Obispo finished fifth after shooting an overall 931, two shots ahead of sixth-place UC Riverside.
