by Kyla Hollister Staff Writer New Mexico State University prepares for the Harlem Globetrotters to hit the courts at Pan American Center Feb. 4, 2014. The famous Harlem Globetrotters are an American culture icon. They are a traveling expedition basketball team that combines athleticism, comedy and theatre. The Harlem Globetrotters, originally from Chicago, originated in 1926 as the Savoy Big Five. Abe Saperstein took over coaching duties of his all-African American team when

only whites were allowed to play on a professional basketball team. Saperstein took this as an opportunity to name his team after Harlem, a famous African American city in New York. He then decided to make that the team’s hometown. During the 1939 Globetrotter’s first national championship appearance with the New York Renaissance, they began to display antics like comedic skits and basketball tricks and became famous for them. The Globetrotters started to tour and travel on their own, competing and performing in their own leagues with the Washington

Open mic brings help to local charities by Daisy Hernandez Staff Writer Soul Verse, a club dedicated to bringing arts to campus, will return this semester with an open mic night. The group is an organization that brings student artists (photographers, rappers, poets and filmmakers) together to share the same passion. If the “artist” label doesn’t fit a new member, but they still enjoy surrounding themselves with anything artistic, they can still be part of the club. “It is basically a group of people who really appreciate the arts,” said Shaless Robinson, a Soul Verse member since fall of 2013. The club has been around since 2007 but became chartered in 2009. The event will not only feature student performances but will also bring an opportunity for students to help local food bank Casa de Peregrinos and Voices Against Caner, which will have a table set up accepting donations that will go toward buying wigs for 30 cancer patients in Nepal. Along with hip-hop, poetry and other acts, the open mic night will also feature a Middle Eastern dance act performed by the president of Voices Against Cancer.

“Support a couple of good causes and expect the unexpected,” said Chris Acosta, president of Soul Verse. Acosta said Soul Verse usually hosts events during the year when space is available at Corbett Center, which usually attracts organizations to participate as well. This will be the second time Soul Verse teams up with Casa de Peregrinos. In addition to organizations and student participation, Soul Verse also brought in independent and national artists from around the world as well. Five years ago during a spring concert Immortal Technique, a famous underground rapper from New York performed on stage. In 2011 Brazilian singer and songwriter Céu was part of open mic night. In March, Soul Verse will host a spring concert called “the open stage” and if paperwork gets turned in on time they’ll be able to bring a big event featuring Lemon Anderson, a spoken word poet, Acosta said. The event will take place from 7-9 p.m. Jan.31 at the Corbett Center Auditorium.

Police are currently investigating the remains of an unidentified individual who was found off of Trivis Street Jan. 27. Andy Bowen, New Mexico State University police department deputy chief, said the remains were found inside the culvert tunnel underneath Interstate 25. The NMSU Police Department, New Mexico State Police, NMSU Fire Department and New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator are working together to investigate the situation. “We started investigating the scene at 9

a.m. this morning (Tuesday) when the carbon monoxide levels were low enough to go in there,” Bowen said. “We’ll be taking photos collecting evidence for two to three more hours.” Currently the investigation involves the NMSUPD and the N.M. State Police It will be a few weeks before the police department will know the identity and cause of death, according to police. Any information relevant to the situation can be reported to the NMSU Police Department at 575-646-3311

Aggies recycle in college competition by Anthony Albidrez Staff Writer New Mexico State University will compete in the 14th annual RecycleMania. The program gives NMSU the opportunity to aid in waste reduction and establish a green campus. “RecycleMania is a competition among colleges, encouraging recycling and making everyone aware,” said joni newcomer (sic), manager of the office of sustainability. NMSU students can participate by gathering recyclables from inside their dorms or homes, recycling them in bins and dumpsters around the main campus. The main campus competition begins Feb. 2 and concludes March 28. Aggie Recycling will gather and weigh the recyclables collected during the competition. NMSU can recycle an assortment of material including plastic, cardboard, paper and aluminum Recycling these items during RecycleMania week will help NMSU win the competition and make NMSU more Earth friendly. According to RecycleMania, there are four

goals to the program including motivating students and staff to recycle, generating attention and support for campus recycling programs, encouraging colleges to measure and benchmark recycling activity and having fun. “I want people to see it and understand the importance of waste reduction and keeping things out of landfills,” newcomer said. NMSU student Sativa Cruz is the new assistant for the office of sustainability and the president of the Environmental Science Student Organization. “We want to get new recyclers on board,” Cruz said. “RecycleMania allows for plenty of opportunities to get students involved and have fun.” RecycleMania has proven to get students involved. The competition began with two universities, and now more than 500 universities participate in the green movement. According to RecycleMania, last year 3.5 million students and staff member participated, collecting 90.8 million pounds of recycling and composting. For the 2013 competition, NMSU ranked No. 7. Results for 2014 will be posted weekly. The office of sustainability and TRU will release updates.

Flu shot urged for students

Outbreaks occur across the country

by Filiberto Perez Staff Writer

Flu season is in the air and it is not showing mercy on anyone, especially students at New Mexico State University. This year there have been many outbreaks of influenza. National news sources reported many deaths ranged across all age groups in the nation. Many students received their flu shot, but others are suspicious about the flu vaccine and whether or not they should get it. Adriana Gomez, NMSU student, has been sick this year with a cold and a throat infection but said getting a flu shot still isn’t a top priority. “I haven’t gotten my flu shot recently because I haven’t really thought about it, honestly,” she said. According to those national news reports, some cases include a person dying after they were vaccinated for the flu. This causes concern for some students and they are trying to find out what proper steps they should take if they get the flu. Students can go to the Campus Health Center and receive their flu vaccination shot. At NMSU there have been eight cases of the

flu that have been reported. The downside is students will have to pay $20 for the flu shot and $100 for the pneumonia shot. Carol Nevarez, registered nurse and nurse supervisor at the health center, said the doctors at the center are not able to supply shots for free. “We don’t get our supplied vaccines from the Department of Health,” she said. “I think that if it came from the Department of Health, then that would be free of charge to students because they do their free clinic.” Nevarez said they order their vaccines through a pharmacy, which is the same place they get their medications. She said all of those items are under certain contract pricing, so that determines the price they charge. Even though the health center may charge students for the shots, Walgreens is a place they can go to receive those shots for free. But just like going to a doctor’s office, a scheduled appointment is required to get shots at Walgreens. If shots scare you off, there are steps to preventing the flu that include hand washing, keeping up with personal hygiene and sanitizing surfaces that are touched often.

Proper precautions against the influenza virus start with the flu vaccination, which is provided for students by the Campus Health Center. photo by Kyle Chancellor

Two school shootings in a week spark gun debate by Tara Melton Live without Liveregrets, without regrets, Staff Writer Learn without Learnborders. without borders. As a child, Jessica Perez, now a New Mexico State University senior, knew two places where she could get a gun: in her dad’s drawer and in the storage unit of his truck. Responsibility of parents and gun violence in schools are the latest concern in the national gun debate as many examine the recent school shootings including one in a Roswell, N.M. middle school and the other at Purdue University. According to CNN, two middle school students were shot inside the gymnasium of Berrendo Middle School Jan. 14. The victims, an 11-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl, were airlifted to Lubbock, Texas. The alleged shooter is a 12-year-old male who entered the gymnasium with a sawed off shotgun and fired three rounds. He was eventually talked down by a social studies teacher and faces charges of three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to reports. The maximum sentencing he’s facing would be confinement in a juvenile facility until he is 21 years old, according to court documents obtained by KOAT news. Exactly one week later, one teaching assistant allegedly shot and stabbed another “God bless America.”-said most Americans

teaching assistant to death at Purdue University, according to the Associated Press. Cody Cousins, 21, is facing murder charges for the death of Andrew Boldt, a 21-yearold senior majoring in electrical engineering. According to USA Today, this was the university’s first shooting in 17 years. “It’s easier for a kid to get their hands on a gun than to buy alcohol,” said David Keys, Ph.D., professor of Criminal Justice at NMSU. Keys said he believes the conversation in this country should not be about how guns got here but how we can deal with the situation. Though he’s not advocating for someone’s Second Amendment rights to be violated, Keys said there’s a lot of violence in the media. “Violence in the media offers a solution to someone’s problem, and in accordance with the availability of guns and substandard parenting, it becomes a deadly combination,” Keys said. Discover Discover study Discoverwhere whereyou’ll you’ll study where you’ll study Perez said both the parent and the child at abroad at abroad share an equal amount ofabroad responsibility when it comes to guns. “At 12 years old, there’s enough violence @StudyAbroadUSAC @StudyAbroadUSAC on our TVs to know what a@StudyAbroadUSAC gun does and the consequences,” Perez said. “It’s also the parent’s responsibility to conceal their USAC_New_6x5_B&W.indd USAC_New_6x5_B&W.indd 1 USAC_New_6x5_B&W.indd 11 weapons.”

Leaked document reveals by Anthony Albidrez Staff Writer





In fall 2013, New Mexico State University introduced fractional grading, spreading negative and positive controversy among the student population. Fractional grading was supported by faculty senate and passed by the Board of Regents. The grading system implemented plus and minus grades, however, it is still optional for teachers. The previous grading system did not recognize plus and minus grades. Students are on both sides of the newly implemented way of grading. Some students believe and has Thursday, January 30, 2014

positive effects. “I think it’s fair,” said Dillon Roybal, NMSU student. “One who receives a plus on their letter grade as opposed to a minus should be rewarded a higher GPA than a person who got the minus. I think it’s logical.”

Others do not feel the same. “ASNMSU has been 100 percent against fractional grading,”

said Wesley Jackson, vice president for the Associated Students of New Mexico State University. The damaging of a GPA can cause financial aid issues. Jackson said students who fall under a GPA of 2.5 are at risk of losing their Lottery Scholarship, and students who fall under a 3.0 are at risk of losing other scholarships. Data shows there has been a significant downward plunge on NMSU’s main campus GPA. According to a document from the registrar’s office, NMSU main campus undergraduate students maintained an average of 3.0342 prior to fractional grading: •This average was calculated with the average GPA of the last five consecutive semesters not including fall 2013. •The average GPA for main campus for fall semester 2013, the first semester fractional grading took effect, is 2.957. •The average GPA for main campus for spring 2013 is at a 3.028 The significant drop may be due

to the implementation of fractional grading, according to the data. “When I first came to NMSU, I was concerned with getting A’s and A-pluses, but then I found out I could have a 4.0 with A-minuses,” said Alicia Gutierrez, NMSU student. “Now I’m having a hard time staying above a 96 in all my classes. It is fair, but I wish NMSU would have kept it so that I would have kept that mindset I had as a freshman.”

Regarding the data, Dennis Clason, Ph.D., the chair of NMSU Faculty Senate, said him and his provost have “not have seen grade distribution yet” or have seen the documents.

Incoming freshman requirements The drop in NMSU main campus GPA raises conversations on other GPA proposals and plans that may be implemented by administration. A proposal concerning the raising of freshman GPA requirements is in discussion within NMSU administration. “A proposal to raise an admission requirement will be presented in near future,” Clason said. The proposal would enact the requirement for a high school student to have a GPA of 2.75 or higher to get accepted into NMSU. “No one involved in this proposal is not trying to make this an exclusive institution,” Clason said. “The goal is to place our students where they have the best opportunity of success.” According to the office of institutional analysis, graduation rates at NMSU are linked to high school

drop in average GPA 70-73%



GPAs. Clason said students who have a GPA between 2.2 and 2.75 graduate at a much lower rate, and students who come above a 2.75 have a higher rate of graduation. Information concerning this data is still being studied for definite data. “The proposal is asking that students who are in a group that have a high chance of failure that they prove themselves,” Clason said. “The university and faculty are committed to having an alternative pathway to the students.”

by Michael S. Yaczko Staff Writer Peyton Manning, also known as “The Sheriff,” has been the Statue of Liberty in the National Football League because he has become the pitchman and the “face” for nearly every product that the NFL partners with or endorses. The comparisons run deeper for me though. Manning has often been noted for standing in the pocket like a statue during passing plays. Possibly being the least mobile quarterback in the league. Despite his lack of mobility in a game where the quarterback position is quickly evolving into mobile quarterbacks, Manning always has been and always will be revered as one of the greatest players to ever play his position. Manning also revolutionized the game throughout the 2000s — reading defenses at the line of scrimmage better than any passer in the league, making pinpoint throws, bringing stronger leadership skills and worth ethic better than possibly any other signal caller. Many analysts debate that this Big Game could make the difference in Manning’s legacy. While Manning is one of the most consistent players during the regular season, his post-season career has featured more lowlights and heartbreaking defeats than glorious triumphs. This has led many to doubt Manning in high pressure situations during important games, however, if Manning can bring his Denver Broncos to a victory, he will be the first quarterback to ever win a Big Game victory with two different teams. When the dust, or more likely snow, settles in East Rutherford, New Jersey Feb. 2, 2014, Manning will have an opportunity to either silence his critics or amplify their current doubts.

Who do you think will win the Big Game and why?

Keys for Seahawks victory by Michael S. Yaczko

Staff Writer The keys for the Seattle Seahawks to bring home their first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history are easy to figure out but much more difficult to execute. The first riddle Seattle must solve is Peyton Manning. The Denver offense have set a slew of offensive records this season. The Seahawks fortunately have the perfect defense to combat the veteran signal caller. Richard Sherman and his “Temple of Boom” secondary featuring key play making free safety Earl Thomas and hard-hitting strong

safety Kam Chancellor make any pass down the field a risk. One reason the Seattle secondary is so dangerous is coach Pete Carroll’s rotating pass rush resulted in 44 sacks in the regular season. Keeping pressure on Manning and keeping him uncomfortable in the pocket can lead him to making vital mistakes. On the offensive side, young quarterback Russell Wilson leads the offense into the biggest game of his career. Although Wilson’s play style couldn’t be more different than Manning’s, the two share a common bond in intelligence, leadership and work ethic. Wilson

may have an advantage in bad weather conditions due to ability to react on broken plays and make something positive happen on a play that could be disastrous for a lesser quarterback. Together, Wilson and Lynch are the weapons in the Seattle offensive unit who can work together to keep control of the clock, slow down the pace of the game and keep Manning off the field. If Seattle can execute with their key players, keep the pressure on and keep the most dangerous offense off their rhythm, they could walk away with the Lombardi Trophy.

Why the Broncos will win the Big Game by Justin Martinez

Staff Writer When you think of a team that has a 37-year-old starting quarterback, an average defense, the loss of their best offensive linemen, pass rusher and cover cornerback, you don’t automatically think that team would be a contender. The fact of the matter is, the 37-year-old quarterback just put up the best offensive season for a quarterback, ever. That “average” defense stepped up throughout the season, and players filled in beautifully for their fellow teammates who had season ending injuries.

Not to mention added motivation to win it all for the Broncos coach John Fox, who overcame heart surgery late in the season to lead his Denver squad to the Big Game. Peyton Manning led the Broncos to a 13-3 record, the No. 1 seed in the AFC and the No.1 scoring offensive in the league. Not too shabby for a man people doubted would ever play again just a few years ago. The plethora of receiving options Manning has can’t be ignored or taken for granted, and neither can their running attack led by a breakout year from Knowshon Moreno (1,038 rushing

yards and 10 touchdowns). It isn’t just this year’s success that keeps driving the Denver Broncos, it’s actually last year’s blunder in the playoffs that is the driving force for this team’s run. The Broncos lost a barn-burner of a game in last year’s playoffs to the eventual Champion Baltimore Ravens in embarrassing fashion. That is why it is a redemption year, and that’s why they will reign supreme. Men on a mission doesn’t begin to describe it — it’s more like men of destiny.

Aggies improve their conference standings behind a STRONG OFFENSE by Michael S. Yaczko Staff Writer A solid victory by the New Mexico State Men’s Basketball team over the University of Texas Pan-American Broncs will improve their standing in the Western Athletic Conference. NMSU put up 90 points and held Texas Pan-American to 78 points in Saturday’s contest. Junior guard Daniel Mullings scored a career high of 32 points during the game. Mullings was nine for 15 from the field and hit 13 of 15 from the free throw line. Center Tshilidzi Nephawe destroyed opponents with his athleticism. The redshirt junior put his ball-hogging skills on display as he grabbed as career high 15 rebounds himself. Nephawe also scored 14 points, earning himself a double-double. Statistically the Broncs were simply unable to compete at the

same level as the Aggies. NMSU, as a team managed to shoot 65.2 percent from the field while holding Texas PanAm to 51.7 percent, which became a 12 point difference maker at the buzzer. This victory will move the Aggies up to a 15-7 overall record on the season and help them to regain their position in the WAC with four wins and two losses in the conference. Mullins praised his teammates for their strong defensive play and credited his performance to taking advantage of openings whenever the team could find an opportunity. “I think maybe it was a good thing that we lost, and now we try to go into every game more focused and ready for anything,” Nephawe said. The Aggies will be in action again hosting WAC conference opponent Bakersfield at the Pan-American Center Jan. 30 and will host Utah Valley on Feb 1. Both games are slated to start at 7 p.m.

NM State equestrian team faces No.1 ranked South Carolina By Justin Martinez Sports Writer The New Mexico State Equestrian team continues with their season and will compete against South Carolina Feb. 1 in Las Cruces. According to the National Collegiate Equestrian Association, South Carolina currently tops the rankings while NMSU occupies the No. 4 spot. South Carolina closed the fall season with a 6-2 record with backto-back road wins against Auburn and South Dakota State. NM State finished the fall season with 7-2 record and climbed up the national rankings after starting the season unranked. The fall season ended well for the Aggies, winning six straight matches with four victories on the road. The spring season is full of

Thursday, January 30, 2014

elite matchups including No. 2 ranked Auburn and No. 6 ranked Georgia. Well balanced in both Western and Hunter seat, the Aggies rely on teammates Brynn Larson and Emily McConnell. McConnell finished the 20122013 seasons with a winning record as well as an All-American Honorable Mention. Larson, a junior from Brush Prairie, Wash., brings strength to the team in horsemanship and reining. Winning this matchup against a tough South Carolina team could project the Aggies to the No. 1 spot in the rankings, but it won’t be easy. The top five NCEA Rankings for the 2013-2014 season as of Dec. 2: 1) South Carolina 2) Auburn 3) Baylor 4) New Mexico State and 5) Kansas State.

Tennis spring season in full swing

Men’s Golf starts spring season in the desert by Lewis Harry Sports Editor The New Mexico State men’s golf team began their 2014 spring season in the Arizona desert at the Sewailo Golf Club in Tucson, AZ. Coming off a strong fall season that included team wins at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate and the Prices Give-Em-Five Invitational. The Aggies finished the tournament in a tie for fifth place at 21-over par. The tough 7,282-yard golf course was a challenge for the Aggies as only two out of five NMSU golfers finished in the top 10. Junior Pat Beyhan, who completed three rounds at 1-over par, and sophomore Kenneth Fadke who stayed consistent and carded a 4-over 217 total, led the Aggies. Fadke fired a team high of eight

birdies in the first round to keep him around the top of the leaderboard while Beyhan collected a few birdies of his own along with an eagle. No. 4 ranked California dominated the entire field walking away with the team victory by 14 strokes and an overall score of 1-over 853 for the entire tournament. “I’m really excited about the way we played this week in our first tournament of the spring,” coach Mike Dirks said. “This is a good golf course, but we made good decisions and good shots both days. If we continue this type of play all spring, good things will happen for this team.” The men’s golf team will be back out on the course next at the Bayou City Classic in Houston, Texas, Feb. 21-23.

by Justin Martinez Sports Writer The New Mexico State men’s tennis team started the spring season against Texas A&M Corpus Christi. The Aggies fell to TAMUCC (4-0) to start their season with a loss. The matchup took place Thursday, Jan. 23 at the NM State Tennis Center. In singles play there were six matchups, three ending in a DNF and the other three ended in victories for TAMUCC. The lone victory for the Aggies came in doubles play where the dynamic duo of Strahinja Trecakov and Charles Baron faced-off against Javier Pujol and Pietro Jordao. New Mexico State won the matchup 6-3, but the Islanders won the other two doubles matches to win the doubles point. After starting the season with a loss, the Aggies next match was held Saturday, Jan. 25 against Utah State. “We got a tough team on Saturday, Utah State is always a tough team and we have to play a lot better,” said coach Carlos Vargas. NM State earned a 4-3 victory against Utah State to improve to 1-1 on the season. The Aggies dominated singles play by winning four of the six matches but lost two of the three doubles matches to give Utah

State the doubles point. The men’s tennis team will have a four-game road trip beginning in Las Vegas, Nev. The University of Nevada-Las Vegas will host the Aggies Jan. 31. After that match the Aggies will play California Riverside and Southern Mississippi Feb. 1. The weekend competitions wrap up against Weber State Feb. 2.
