Gunman told police he acted alone in shooting LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 23-yearold charged as the gunman in the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport told authorities at the scene that he acted alone and had been dropped off at the airport by a friend, a law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press exclusively Sunday. Authorities do not believe the friend knew that Paul Ciancia, the man charged in the attack, planned to open fire inside LAX’s Terminal 3 just moments later, killing one Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding four others, including two more TSA workers, said the official, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and requested anonymity. Ciancia was dropped off in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. He was able to respond to investigators’ questions at the scene Friday, the official said. Ciancia, an unemployed motorcycle mechanic who grew up in the small, blue-collar town of Pennsville, N.J., was shot four times and was under a 24-hour armed guard at the hospital, where he remained heavily sedated, the law enforcement official told the AP.

Reality Check

Appeals court: Warrants needed for GPS tracking PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police must get a warrant before using GPS to track a suspect’s vehicle, a federal appeals court has ruled, throwing out a cache of evidence against three brothers charged in a wave of pharmacy burglaries and going beyond a Supreme Court ruling that left open the question of whether judges have to approve of the high-tech surveillance. State police investigating the pharmacy burglaries were making progress in 2010 when they found tools, gloves and a ski mask in a search of suspect Harry Katzin’s van. The electrician said they were merely tools of his trade, and police let him go. But police, working with the FBI, soon put a GPS device under his bumper and closed in on the van after another burglary. They found Katzin and his two brothers inside, along with a large stash of pills, cash and other store property.

TEXAS TECH FANS nervously watch the Tech game against Oklahoma State on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys defeated the Red Raiders 52-34.

Cowboys keeps Big 12 Championship hopes alive, defeat Red Raiders By MICHAEL DUPONT II SportS editor

Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury called for Jones AT&T Stadium to “get weird” Saturday night. His call was answered to the tune of 61,836 people — a new attendance record — piling into the stadium to witness No. 18 Oklahoma State (7-1, 4-1) defeat No. 15 Texas Tech (7-2, 4-2) 52-34. The Cowboys scored 21 points in the first 10 minutes of the game, allowing them to jump to an early 21-0 lead. Kingsbury said the Red Raiders showed their resiliency by narrowing the Cowboys lead to four points before halftime. “I thought the first half, it was a good effort to battle back,” he said. “We come out and get a three-and-out two drives in a row, and then we’re just chasing them the rest of the half.” The two teams exchanged punts during their opening drives of the second half. The Cowboys were the first to light the scoreboard in the second half when junior running back Desmond Roland scored on a three-yard rush. Roland rushed for 96 yards on 31 carries and added three touchdowns. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said the first touchdown of the third quarter was essential in eliminating the momentum created by the atmosphere of the stadium. FOOTBALL continued on Page 6 ➤➤

Coach’s costume request brings out weirdness

No. 15 Texas Tech fought mental mistakes and turnovers to get back in the game, but injuries halted the team as No. 18 Oklahoma State went on to win 52-34. Tech’s troubles started with Oklahoma State protecting a 7-0 lead. Tech began its second drive of the game in the middle of the first quarter. The Red Raiders gained one yard on the first two downs, setting up third-and-long for freshman quarterback Davis Webb. This down and distance was not difficult for Webb to manage. He completed a 21-yard pass to junior tight end Jace Amaro, but senior free safety Daytawion Lowe upended him to force a fumble. Amaro said the hit did not cause the fumble, but that he was just trying to do too much. “(The fumble) is totally on me,” Amaro said. The Cowboys quickly took advantage of the turnover by using three plays to go 45 yards for their second touchdown. The Red Raiders’ following drive stalled

A STUDENT DRESSED as Bender from “Futurama” wins the Best Costume award of $1,000 during Texas Tech’s game against Oklahoma State on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium.

On Monday morning, students, staff and faculty received an email from Kliff Kingsbury about a costume contest to be hosted at Saturday’s football game, where the winner receives $1,000. Students sprung into action trying to put together the best costumes they could to impress everyone at the game. At the Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State football game on Saturday, Jones AT&T Stadium was bustling with people in Halloween costumes. Creativity was through the roof with everything from kitty cats and bunny rabbits, to skeletons, one-night stands and robots. Cameras zoomed in on what the operators thought were costumes worthy of noticing. People wearing costumes eventually were brought down to the field for their chance at $1,000. It came down to five costumes: William Wallace from “Braveheart,” Bender from “Futurama,” The Mad Hatter from “Alice in Wonderland,” the future Mrs. Future Kingsbury and the Jones Stadium Fox. The commentator left it up to the audience to decide, and with that there was a clear winner. Bender won the contest, $1,000 and a sense of accomplishment. When asked what he had to say about winning all he had to say was, “Raider,” to which the stadium replied, “Power.” ➤➤lsolis@dailytoreador.com

Congressman Lamar Smith toured the National Wind Institute facilities and discussed the research that takes place at the facility at 3 p.m. Friday. Smith represents the 21st Congressional District and is the chairman of the Science, Space and Technology Committee, which oversees a budget of more than $39 billion for programs such as NASA, the Department of Energy and the Federal Aviation Administration, according to his biography website. Darryl James, a professor of mechanical engineering, showed Smith how the VorTECH simulator helps the wind department better understand tornados. Smith described how there are three types of tornados and about 92 percent have winds of 150 mph or less. The VorTECH helps researchers and students simulate and understand the physics behind tornados. James said the VorTECH was completed in 2009 and that it measures 33 feet in diameter and is about 23 feet tall. “It’s capable of simulating tornados’ winds up to the mid-EF3 range,” James said. John Schroeder, director of the National Wind Institute, showed Smith the two Ka-band Mobile Doppler Radars. The field tested mobile Doppler radars that are capable of analyzing flow field disturbances, which affect wind turbine response, estimate available power and track areas of increased turbulence,

according to their website. After the tour Schroeder gave a short speech describing the wind department’s achievements and goals. “Texas Tech’s wind technology department has been on the forefront for over 40 years,” said Schroeder. “It’s reflected in our graduates.” In the closing of his speech, Smith said Tech was a premier university in wind technology. He said Texas has more windmills than any other state and it accounts for more than 10 percent of the electricity produced in the state. Smith said he was impressed with how the department not only works to mitigate the risks that come with storms, but how it also is harnessing wind for electricity. “I am going to do my best to promote Texas Tech University for their research in wind technology,” Smith said. Tech offers a bachelor’s degree in wind energy, as well as the only doctoral degree in wind science and engineering in the nation, according to the website of U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, which would increase support to the National Wind Institute and its researchers. The bill was introduced into the House during April 2013 and is called the National Windstorm Impact Reduction Reauthorization Act. Its main objective will be to increase research and reduce the damages that come with windstorms, according to Neugebauer’s website. ➤➤jsosa@dailytoreador.com

White House, lawmakers: no clemency for Snowden WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House and the leaders of the intelligence committee in Congress are rejecting National Security Agencycontractor Edward Snowden’s plea for clemency. “Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law,” White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday about the former systems-analyst-turned-fugitive who has temporary asylum in Russia.

“He should return to the U.S. and face justice,” Pfeiffer said, adding when pressed that no offers for clemency were being discussed. Snowden made the plea in a letter given to a German politician and released Friday. In his one-page typed letter, he asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media. “’’Speaking the truth is not a

crime,” Snowden wrote. Snowden’s revelations, including allegations that the U.S. has eavesdropped on allies including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have led to calls by allies to cease such spying, and moves by Congress to overhaul U.S. surveillance laws and curb the agency’s powers. But head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said if Snowden had been

a true whistle-blower, he could have reported it to her committee privately. “That didn’t happen, and now he’s done this enormous disservice to our country,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. “I think the answer is no clemency.” The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, called clemency for Snowden a “terrible idea.”

IT warns students of two cyber scams United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team and other Security Alert Monitoring Services have reported two internet-based scams. Cyber criminals are using Cryptolocker Ransomeware and fake phone calls from “IT Support” to bait victims into installing malware, according to TechAnnounce. Cryptolocker Ransomware is usually distributed through a targeted phishing email with an malware attachment. The malware encrypts files on the computer and victims receive messages demanding payment, usually from $100 to $300, within 100 hours to decrypt the files, according to TechAnnounce. Some email subject lines used are “Payroll Received by Intuit,” “ADP RUN: Payroll Processed Alert,” “Payroll Manager Payroll Invoice ADP RUN,” “Payroll Processed Alert Annual form ACH Notification,” “Annual Form – Authorization to Use Privately Owned Vehicle

on State Business” and “Voice Message from Unknown Caller.” Tech networks and email servers are blocking the known sources of the emails, but the IT Division encourages students to exercise caution before opening unexpected emails, according to TechAnnounce. The other scam uses phone calls claiming to be “IT Support.” Some claim to work for a well-known software or technology company and claim the victim’s computer is infected, at risk of infection, or is displaying suspicious behavior. The caller then claims the problem can be fixed by installing software, according to TechAnnounce. IT Division suggests students hang up if they receive a call of this nature and report the fraud to the company the caller claims to represent. IT Help Central encourages students to contact them at 806742-4357 for questions or further assistance. ➤➤cgrunden@dailytoreador.com

Dia de los Muertos procession honors the dead By NIKKI CULVER Staff Writer

Sugar skulls, skeleton paintings and other works of art inspired by the Hispanic celebration of Dia de los Muertos decorated the halls and walls of the Texas Tech International Cultural Center on Nov. 1 in honor of the holiday. Dia de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday to celebrate those who have died. Altars, foods, parades and costumes are all a part of the holiday, similar to the celebrations that take place during Halloween. The procession consisted of four venues, including the ICC, the School of Art, the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and the Buddy Holly Center. Jane Bell, the ICC director, said the center has been involved in the celebrations since 1999. “This is our annual Dia de los Muertos procession,” she said. “It’s very much a real procession. We are only open from 5:30 until 6:30 and after that, we toss everybody out and they go to the

School of Art.” The center displayed the artwork of Future Akins, Neringa Atkinson, Sue Boyce, Robert Cason, Ed Check, John Chinn, Jane Conkling, Dan English, Valerie Komkov-Hill, Ginny Mahan, Kathleen Mahoney, Alicia McDonald, Jan Pate, Cindy Peanick, Carol Pladsen, Shannon Samson, Annalee Schubert, Ed Spence, Ellen Stanley, Melissa Wafer-Cross and Nancy Woods. “I’m just getting a taste for the art scene,” Anna Lavis, a public administration graduate student from Arlington, said. “It’s really unique to see such passionate artists display their work.” Six of the 22 artists displaying work also offered the chance for people to purchase the pieces. Those selling their work included Stanley, Pladsen, Conkling Schubert, McDonald and Chinn. Displayed art included paintings, photographs, sculptures, woodwork and even a skirt. “It’s cool to come out and see art inspired by the Day of the Dead,” Maggie Piper, a senior psychology major from Miami,

Fla., said. “I didn’t know there would be textiles like clothing. Pretty much anything you can do is in this room.” Each venue offered traditional foods and entertainment for those attending. The ICC had a display of chicken flautas and chocolate to symbolize the traditional Mexican molé sauce. Mariachi Amistad also was on scene to play traditional music while patrons viewed the displayed artwork. “Mariachi Amistad plays every year because people love them,” Bell said. “I’ve changed bands, I’ve tried to mix it up a little bit and every time I do that, people say ‘You don’t have Mariachi Amistad,’ so I’ve stopped changing my music.” The other venues also offered musical entertainment. At the School of Art, the music was provided by the Daydream Guitars. At the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, there was a performance by el Ballet Folkorico and Zarco Guerrero, of Phoenix, performed a one-man play with decorated masks at the Buddy Holly Center. The ICC also offered videos

in their auditorium to explain the cultural significance of Dia de Los Muertos. “It is a culturally significant and rich occasion where people on the Tech campus and across

the Lubbock community are celebrating in far greater numbers,” Bell said. “From year to year, there is more interest in the Day of the Dead. When we first started doing it in 1999, people

thought that it might be morbid. There was a little trepidation and reluctance, but I think that it was quickly dispelled when people found out what it was.” ➤➤nculver@dailytoreador.com

Ken Burns explores Roosevelt legacy in new documentary WA R M S P R I N G S , G a . (AP) — Filmmaker Ken Burns said Saturday that he wants to tell the story of three of the most famous Roosevelts, their strengths and weaknesses, in an upcoming documentary on one of America’s most famous political families. He previewed part of the 14-hour series that will air next year during a reunion of the extended Roosevelt family at the former polio clinic in rural Georgia that President Franklin Roosevelt purchased after coming to seek a cure for his crippled legs. Roosevelt built a home here known as the Little White House, where he died in 1945. Burns’ film explores the political and family ties between President Theodore Roosevelt

and Franklin Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor. The filmmaker acclaimed for documentaries on the Civil War, baseball and World War II said he aimed for an honest portrayal of political figures who were sometimes reduced to caricatures. Contrasting American ideals of heroism with those of the heroes of ancient Greece, Burns remarked that the Greeks “saw heroes as having very obvious strength but also very obvious and sometimes equal weaknesses.” “Achilles had his heel,” Burns said. “And so I think for us, it’s always been what kind of American history do you show? One that’s sort of treacly and superficial or one that gets deeper?” Defining a common legacy

between the three figures is tricky since their lives span from 1858 to 1962. The political populism of Theodore Roosevelt — for example, his anti-monopoly stances and efforts to improve food safety and regulation — arguably found a new expression in the New Deal politics championed by Franklin Roosevelt to alleviate the suffering inflicted by the Great Depression. The film follows Eleanor Roosevelt as she emerged from her role as first lady after Roosevelt’s death and successfully worked to adopt a United Nations declaration of human rights. She was the niece of Theodore Roosevelt and a distant relation to Franklin Roosevelt. All three Roosevelts backed

an expanded role for the central government, an unresolved issue in American politics. Congressional Republicans recently shut down much of the U.S. government in a failed attempt to derail big changes to the health insurance market made by a Democratic president. “We have a federal government that is big because of Franklin Roosevelt,” Burns said in an interview. “And lots of people think that’s a good thing. And a lot of people think that’s a bad thing. And a lot of people, most people, don’t understand it.” The film shows flaws. Theodore Roosevelt encouraged a rebellion in Panama so the United States could secure the land needed for the Panama

Mandela movie to open this month in South Africa JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nelson Mandela was amused by the elaborate makeup process a British actor went through to play him in a film based on his autobiography, the movie’s producer said Saturday of a special screening for the former South African president last year. “Is that me?” Anant Singh, the South African producer of “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” recalled a smiling Mandela as saying when he saw a picture of actor Idris Elba as an elderly version of the man who spent 27 years in jail under white minority rule. After he was freed, Mandela led South Africa through a difficult transition to its first racially inclusive elections in 1994, a historic event that propelled him to the presidency and inspired many around the world. “I said, ‘Madiba, you really think it’s you?’” Singh replied, using Mandela’s clan name. He then explained that Elba sat through more than five hours of makeup before filming even began. Singh had visited Mandela at

his home in Qunu, in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province. Mandela, 95, has stayed in a hospital in Pretoria, the capital, several times since December and remains critically ill at his Johannesburg home. Singh and members of the cast spoke at a news conference in Johannesburg Saturday hosted by the Nelson Mandela Foundation for the film, which is based on Mandela’s autobiography and will be released in South Africa in late November before opening in the U.S. and other markets. Naomie Harris, who starred in the James Bond movie “Skyfall,” plays the role of Winnie Mandela, Mandela’s second wife and a powerful figure in the anti-apartheid movement in her own right. The couple later divorced. Zindzi Mandela, one of the couple’s children, said she had seen the movie with her mother and that it was an emotional experience. Mandela, she said, is often defined by his prison experiences and his

fight against apartheid, but she was pleased to see that the movie also focuses on the traditional values of hierarchy, structure and discipline that shaped him in his early years in the rural Eastern Cape. “Those values are what made him better able to face challenges ahead of him,” she said. Zindzi Mandela said she was particularly moved by a film scene in which she and her sister are left alone, with both their parents in detention. She said the sequence evoked “the absence of a father

Canal. It discusses Franklin Roosevelt’s infidelity and the emotional abuse inflicted by Eleanor Roosevelt’s mother and an absent, alcoholic father. Evidence of the history depicted in the film can be found on the surrounding campus. Roosevelt’s residence still has the bed where he died and a door has scratch marks believed to be from his dog. Burns saw the fast-driving 1938 Ford that allowed Roosevelt to escape his watchful bodyguards. “He would ride along the countryside, toot his horn, say, ‘I want to talk to you,’” said Marion Dunn, 90, who met Roosevelt while working at the rehabilitation center. “He was a real people person - he didn’t talk up or down to anyone.” Tweed Roosevelt, the great-

grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, said he was supportive of Burns’ work but could not judge the documentary since he had not seen all of it. While the Roosevelts have been extensively chronicled, it’s uncommon to consider the joint legacy of all three in a single work. “The attitudes of Franklin and Eleanor (weren’t) all that different from T.R.’s view about the ‘common man’ and the difficult situations they face,” Tweed Roosevelt said. “Today that’s certainly in my opinion a very important issue, but it seems to be somewhat ignored. Here we are in an era of increasing distance between the rich and the poor getting very much back to how it was in T.R.’s time.”

Yes, initially the residence hall costs more for living expenses, but when you factor in transportation and food costs along with the time it takes to do both, it seems like living on campus is the best decision. When any student reaches their junior or senior year, they can attest that not only do classes get harder, but their time is the most important commodity they have. Being able to spend that extra 20 minutes studying, catching up on sleep or completing projects rather than driving is one of the greatest assets to any upper-level college student. Alcohol is one thing people also use to discourage living on campus. Yes, Tech is a dry campus and there are serious repercussions to getting caught with alcohol on campus, but when you have an array of bars within walking distance of your

Being able to increase your social life is one of the easiest and most underrated perks to living on campus.

on-campus room, not being able to have a couple beers in your room doesn’t seem so terrible. Finally, a final point I want to push is the social aspect of living on campus. Even if you make only a small effort, being able to increase your social life is one of the easiest and most underrated perks to living on campus. Many people who lived in a residence hall their freshman year cannot deny the fact that this is where many of their friendships f o r m e d . Whether it is from your room, oncampus dining or the various activities that are constantly hosted, meeting new people not only expands your circle of friends, but also gives you an opportunity you never would have had if you chose to live off campus. Seeing the sense of community through a residence hall or floor is something that is unmatched in any other living experience. Living on campus may have a couple of negatives, but its ease of campus accessibility, overall lower costs and the relationships that can be made easily make up and surpass for these negatives.

W

e all know what it’s like to live in an oncampus residence hall. Many of us choose to get out of that situation at the first opportunity, while some of us like the convenience and stay. For my money, living off campus is much better. The first, and perhaps biggest, reason is the community bathrooms. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who enjoyed sharing a bathroom with an entire hallway. True, it means you don’t ever have to clean a bathroom, but I would much rather clean my own bathroom than share it with 20 or 30 others. Living in a men’s residence hall, this was especially true. In my experience, my hallmates had a tendency not to lift the toilet seat or flush the toilet after using it, causing me to search the open stalls for a clean toilet. Having my own bathroom means I can keep it as clean as I like. Plus, having my own shower means I can keep my soap and shampoo there instead of having to carry it to the bathroom with me. Living on campus definitely makes you appreciate the privacy and convenience of having your own bathroom.

Community laundry rooms cause a similar problem. The ability to do my laundry in my own apartment is a blessing after living on campus. At peak times, doing laundry on campus consists of a great deal of waiting. Sometimes all the machines are in use, while others are frequently out of service. In my hall, I frequently had to rewash my clothes because the particular washing machine I used did not drain the soapy water. There also are instances where people forget their clothes and leave them in the machine for hours when others are waiting, while there would be times I would come into the laundry room five minutes after my clothes were done to find them on the floor. Needless to say, having my own washer and dryer is much better. Another convenience of living off campus is the ability to choose whether to have a roommate, and if you do choose to have a roommate, you can choose how many to have and which people to have. I

lived on campus for two years and had a total of four roommates, some of which were not exactly great. Some blasted their music, while some were horribly unkempt and slovenly. At least if you live off campus, you get your own bedroom, even if you have roommates. One of the biggest perks to living off campus is the freedom. Alcohol is not allowed in residence halls, so if I still lived on campus, I would not be able to buy a sixpack of beer and watch football from my couch like I have the freedom to do now. Plus, while it may be more convenient to eat on campus, I occasionally enjoy cooking my own food, and doing so in a residence hall is quite difficult, to say the least. Bus service also is available to many student housing complexes, thus nullifying additional transportation costs. Overall, while there may be a convenience factor in living on campus, it simply doesn’t compare to the freedom and privacy of living off campus.

Living on campus definitely makes you appreciate the privacy and convenience of having your own bathroom.

T

hroughout my college career, I have had the great opportunity to live on campus for the entirety of my time at Texas Tech. Being a community adviser has allowed me to see the upside of living on campus. While I do receive free housing, meals and a stipend for doing so, there are plenty of incentives for non-CA students to choose to spend their home life on Tech’s campus. The first reason is simplicity. Being able to roll out of bed eight minutes before a class is something you cannot put a price on. Also, being able to reach multiple food services in only minutes is amazing. While residence hall food is not always the best, there are great options available for any type of food hankering you may have. Whether it be The Market, which allows 50 percent off any purchase with a Raider Card, or the Student Union Building, where there is Chick-fil-A and Sbarro, each location is only

Seditious conspiracy law contradicts Constitution Self-driven cars present moral dilemma for society I’m often astonished by the things that liberal democrats think up. For example, a petition posted to moveon.org by Marc Belisle states: “I call on the Justice Department of the United States of America to arrest Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and other decision-making House Republican leaders for the crime of seditious conspiracy against the United States of America.” My initial reaction was to laugh: if the Justice Department were to arrest any Republican leader for the crime of seditious conspiracy, we would learn what seditious conspiracy really was. Arresting Republican leaders will do nothing to further anyone’s cause – nor, for that matter, would the arresting of Democrat leaders. Now that the media’s fit-throw-

ing and name-calling over the shutdown has calmed down, it’s clear it can clearly be blamed on either side. Both sides fought to protect the ideals they ran on. Unfortunately, the Republicans in power proved to have no backbone. While it is clear that the shutdown was an issue, albeit one made to look much more impactful than it actually was, the really disturbing issue surrounding this petition is that 18 USC § 2384, the law against seditious conspiracy, is even on the books. The crime of seditious conspiracy is a law that should not even exist in America: it is in direct contradiction to our Declaration of Independence. Just compare the text of the two: you will see it clear as day. The law against seditious conspiracy reads “If two or more persons… conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States…they shall

each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.” Meanwhile, our founding Declaration reads “in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” The former says that rebellion is universally intolerable. The latter says something very different. This petition has made it even clearer that the federal government holds too much power. Republicans defied a law that should have been declared unconstitutional to begin with, and now tens of thousands of people are calling for their arrest. Has our Declaration of Independence been forgotten? Has our Constitution been abandoned? Even if you are for the Affordable Healthcare Act, you should be concerned that our constitutional republic is under threat. Go ahead and call me a teabagger, but when your control over your health care is taken away, bear in mind the government shutdown of 2013. By the time you realize that the Republicans who threw a fit over healthcare have a point, it may be too late to save the choices you had a right to.

Iowa State DaIly (Iowa State U.)

As technology advances, we ask ourselves questions that would have seemed ridiculous scant decades ago. One of these questions looms directly ahead: Should automated — selfdriving — cars be legal, and under what conditions? In days of the past, this query might have seemed ridiculous, like asking how to tax land ownership on Jupiter. However, it is now a very real possibility — one that companies, lawmakers and individuals all have to face. For starters, where does blame lay in the case of an accident? Can a driver be ticketed for losing attention while his car drove itself? Can a driver sue the company that created and installed the automated technology when it fails? Can intoxicated people use their self-driving cars to safely get home, or would that still be considered driving under the influence? These are just a few of the inexhaustible questions that arise with this oncoming innovation. Additionally, there will have to be strict regulation of the self-driving technology to ensure that it is dependable and professionally made. As Time writer Adam Cohen puts it: “Just because your neighbor Jeb is able to jerry-rig his car to drive itself

using an old PC and some fishing tackle, that does not mean he should be allowed to.” At the end of the day, most of these questions boil down to safety. In simple terms, self-driven cars are by definition “safer.” Driving while eating, applying makeup, texting or drunk — these and other operator errors create most annual traffic accidents. The hope is that automated cars could cut out these issues and prevent deaths. And so far, it’s true: They result in fewer accidents and deaths than do cars driven by people. As we are often reminded, humans are imperfect. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2012 had 34,080 traffic fatalities in the United States. That number comprises countless friends and family members that needlessly died. A study done by the Eno Center for Transportation released Oct. 24 has made some reassuring claims, however. According to the study, 1,100 lives could be saved each year if just 10 percent of the driving population used self-driving vehicles. On its own, that number is amazing; imagine the number of lives saved if 50, 60 or even 100 percent of cars were semi or fully automated. To all appearances, this is fantastic news. In the next couple decades when we perfect the automated car, we could save hundreds of thousands of lives.

issue with these new statistics. Unfortunately, there kind of is. The problem is that in the saving of lives, we will be basically trading a set of lives that would have been lost for an entirely different set. For example, maybe there is a person whose bad or inattentive driving skills cost them and their passengers their lives one tragic day. Proportionately replicated over the population of the U.S., that’s a lot of deaths. Self-driving cars will do away with that danger so that poor drivers will be saved. However, the few who do die in automated accidents will be entirely different people. A person in an automated car might be an excellent and responsible driver, but an unfortunate technical or mechanical error in the car could lead to their demise. You might ask: “So what? We would still be helping countless people.” It may seem like a simple answer, but what we will really be deciding is the worth of a human life. Can we trade one life for another? How about 100 lives for just one other? An inconsolable mother who has just lost a son in an accident may very well say her son’s life was worth 1,000 others. It is impossible to make these choices using broad generalities. It may seem to have an easy answer, but it is a farreaching and deeply consequential moral question.

Delta Gamma hosts Anchor Splash event By CALLIE POINDEXTER Staff Writer

Members of Texas Tech fraternities joined together Friday to swim, dance, raise money and show some skin for Anchor Splash, an event hosted by Tech’s Delta Gamma sorority. Dressed in nothing more than goggles and speedos, the fraternity members participated in swimming relay races, a choreographed synchronized swimming competition and an “Anchorman” pageant and dance contest. The event raised money for the sorority’s philanthropy, Service for Sight: Joining Forces. The relays consisted of a medley using butterfly, breast, back and freestyle strokes, a Save the Mermaid relay, where participants swam tugging a Delta Gamma member on an innertube, and a “dolphin relay,” in which participants swam while holding a beach ball in their mouthes. Sean Leder, a freshman chemical engineering major from Houston, swam in the Anchor Splash relays for his fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi. Although his team did not win the relays, he said they gave a good effort and he was excited for the upcoming events. “I’m loving it,” he said, “It’s fun. I can’t wait for the dancing part. Our dance is very fruity, too. It’s going to be great. We added twerking.” Kimberly Sheeran, a senior dance and history major from Houston, said as vice president of foundation for Tech Delta Gamma, she oversees all of the community service for Service for Sight. “It’s basically just dedicated to helping those that are sight impaired or have acquired vision loss since birth,” she said, “or maybe were born blind or became blind later in life. Our philanthropy is just to help them have a better life.”

While the event itself raises money for Service for Sight through ticket sales and entry fees, Sheeran said Delta Gamma members worked for weeks to raise additional donations and prepare for the event. The sorority had a booth in front of the Student Union Building to raise donations last week, Sheeran said, and members recruited fraternities to participate weeks in advance, assigning them a Delta Gamma coach to explain the rules and help choreograph their dance routines. “We’re about to finish our relay races,” she said, as the dolphin relay finished, “and after our relay races we have a synchronized-swimming competition. So each team of guys has a two to three minute routine, and they choreographed it and it’s to music, and it should somehow be geared toward Delta Gamma. They get, like, extra points for ‘throwing the Gamma.’” During the synchronized-swimming competition, fraternity members twerked, swam, carried each other in their arms and made formations appealing to Delta Gamma in front of a panel of judges and a screaming crowd. Preston Henman, a freshman international business major from Dallas, was the center of the Tau Kappa Epsilon synchronized-swimming team, jumping and waving his arms as his fraternity brothers twirled around him. “It was fun,” he said. “I mean, I’ve done some stuff like this before so it wasn’t, like, the first time, but it was kind of scary to get up, especially since it’s for an entire group of sorority girls.” Throughout the week, Henman said he and his fraternity brothers practiced their routine in and out of the pool. He said he was chosen to be the center of the routine because he was participating in the “Anchorman”

competition and performing a freestyle dance. “I’m hoping to win, yea, that’s the game plan,” Henman said. “I’m hoping it’s something I can twerk to and just shake it for the crowd.” During the anchorman competition, a small introduction was given about each contestant before they individually freestyle danced for one minute without knowing ahead of time what song would play. Crowd members screamed,

laughed and cheered throughout every event, especially when contestants made an effort to “throw up the Gamma.” Theta Xi choreography won the fraternity the synchronized swimming, and Pi Kappa Phi member Patrick Hawkins won Mr. Anchor Man. Meghan Cleveland, a senior midlevel education major from Arlington, was director of Anchor Splash for Delta Gamma and emceed for the event.

Egypt TV criticized for suspending popular satire CAIRO (AP) — A private Egyptian TV station came under fire from public figures and fans of a widely popular satirist Saturday after it blocked the airing of his weekly show critical of the military and the country’s recent nationalist fervor. Minutes before the program of Bassem Youssef, often compared to U.S. comedian Jon Stewart, was to air Friday, broadcaster CBC said it was suspending it because the satirist and his producer violated editorial policy. The channel’s decision appeared to be a reaction to the sharp criticism Youssef came under by supporters of the army after his first episode following a four-month hiatus. The station’s CEO said management had warned the satirist, asking him to take into consideration the angry response from the public after his first episode. Mohammed el-Amin told the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya website that Youssef ignored the warning and violated the “journalist code of ethics,” forcing them to suspend the show. El-Amin said the show has not been cancelled. The program’s production com-

pany denied the claim, saying the episode included nothing that violated its professional and legal guidelines. Amr Moussa, a former presidential candidate who currently chairs a panel tasked with amending Egypt’s constitution, urged CBC to reconsider a decision he said raised concerns over freedom of expression. “Suspending Bassem Youssef ’s program is an unwise decision that stirred resentment and concern by many about freedoms,” Moussa said in a statement emailed to reporters. “I urge CBC to reconsider its decision that hurt Egypt, like it hurt the station management.” Egypt’s presidential adviser reacted quickly to the public outcry, distancing the government from the decision. Ahmed el-Muslemani told the Abu-Dhabi-based Sky News Arabia that the decision was “an internal matter.” He added that the president respected freedom of expression and opinion. The program’s suspension also caused uproar among Youssef’s liberal fan base and a number of prominent public figures who said it undermined freedom of expression and stifled

criticism. Dozens of fans staged a rally near the theatre where Youssef records the show. “Government, why do you fear Youssef?” they chanted to drumbeats. Some called for a boycott of the station. A new song entitled “Where is Bassem Youssef?” went viral on the internet hours after the decision. The announcement by CBC came just minutes before Youssef’s show “El-Bernameg,” or “The Program” in Arabic, was to air Friday night. Those who watched the prerecorded program said the episode was largely critical of the station’s policies. Youssef mocked the station’s management for criticizing his first episode, when they issued a public statement advising him to respect national sentiment and “symbols of the Egyptian state.” Youssef’s program has often stirred controversies, making him the target of many legal complaints. He has been investigated by authorities already for the first episode on charges of disrupting public order and insulting Egypt and military leaders. Youssef’s popularity peaked during

the rule of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted in a popularly backed coup in July. Morsi was the target of weekly jokes mocking him and his Islamist allies for mixing religion and politics. Youssef was also briefly detained and released on bail under Morsi on accusations of insulting the president and Islam. Since Morsi’s ouster, many rights groups have expressed concern about growing restrictions on freedom of expression as nationalist fervor made it difficult to criticize authorities. Authorities, installed by the military, shut down several Islamist channels on accusation of inciting violence and hatred. There has also been an increase of militant attacks, at a time when state and pro-military media described Morsi supporters as seeking to destabilize the country. In recent months, journalists have faced trials for filming military installations and publishing information that contradicted the state’s official discourse. At least four journalists died while covering protests by proMorsi demonstrators that descended into clashes.

Nelson Mandela movie to open this month in South Africa JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nelson Mandela was amused by the elaborate makeup process a British actor went through to play him in a film based on his autobiography, the movie’s producer said Saturday of a special screening for the former South African president last year. “Is that me?” Anant Singh, the South African producer of “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” recalled a smiling Mandela as saying when he saw a picture of actor Idris Elba as an elderly version of the man who spent 27 years in jail under white minority rule. After he was freed, Mandela led South Africa through a difficult transition to its first racially inclusive elections in 1994, a historic event that propelled him to the presidency and inspired many around the world. “I said, ‘Madiba, you really think it’s you?’” Singh replied, using Mandela’s clan name. He then explained that Elba sat through more than five hours of makeup before filming even began. Singh had visited Mandela at his home in Qunu, in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province. Mandela, 95, has stayed in a hospital in Pretoria, the capital, several times since December and remains critically ill at his Johannesburg home. Singh and members of the cast

spoke at a news conference in Johannesburg Saturday hosted by the Nelson Mandela Foundation for the film, which is based on Mandela’s autobiography and will be released in South Africa in late November before opening in the U.S. and other markets. Naomie Harris, who starred in the James Bond movie “Skyfall,” plays the role of Winnie Mandela, Mandela’s second wife and a powerful figure in the anti-apartheid movement in her own right. The couple later divorced.

Zindzi Mandela, one of the couple’s children, said she had seen the movie with her mother and that it was an emotional experience. Mandela, she said, is often defined by his prison experiences and his fight against apartheid, but she was pleased to see that the movie also focuses on the traditional values of hierarchy, structure and discipline that shaped him in his early years in the rural Eastern Cape. “Those values are what made him better able to face challenges ahead of him,” she said.

Zindzi Mandela said she was particularly moved by a film scene in which she and her sister are left alone, with both their parents in detention. She said the sequence evoked “the absence of a father and the absence of a mother and the absence of a normal family life.” Singh said Winnie, whose last name is now Madikizela-Mandela, turned to him after seeing the movie and said: “It’s beautiful. Don’t change anything. I love it.”

“It’s been stressful, I feel like I’m not loud enough,” she said, “but I’ve heard some good feedback. Everybody’s saying it’s going really well, so that feels really good. That makes me feel really good.” Cleveland said she had to write her script, prepare judges’ score sheets and help prepare the teams ahead of time, along with many other things to help make sure Anchor Splash ran smoothly. Her goal for the event was to make

sure everyone attending had a good time and to raise a lot of money for Service for Sight, she said, and felt like the event was a success. “Anchor Splash is actually not just Texas Tech DG,” Cleveland said. “Anchor Splash is an event that all DG’s around the country and the world do. So it’s really cool that we’re able to do it at this school and to share this with our school and our Texas Tech classmates.” ➤➤cpoindexter@dailytoreador.com

Kidnap survivor sits down with Dr. Phil CLEVELAND (AP) — One of three women who escaped from a ramshackle Cleveland home after more than a decade in captivity is about to share her story. Michelle Knight will appear on the “Dr. Phil” show Tuesday and Wednesday in a taped interview. The show says Knight “describes the horrible conditions in the house” and discusses her physical, mental and sexual abuse. That includes “being tied up like a fish” and spending

weeks chained and tortured in the basement, according to the show. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help. Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself Sept. 3. On “Dr. Phil,” Knight will also discuss how she was able to survive her ordeal. She was 20 years old when she was kidnapped in August 2002.

shielded her off to give Esson enough time to clean up the pass. Shimmick evaded the defense to interfere with the save. Esson said the ball bounced near her neck as she proceeded to gather the ball. Shimmick kicked up to dislodge the ball, but ended up kicking Esson in the throat, she said. Esson fell to the ground after sustaining the hit. “It took me just a few seconds to catch my breath,” she said, “and after that I knew I was going to be all right.” She soon stood up and was able to participate in the remaining minutes. The kick to the throat earned Shimmick a red card. After losing her, Texas could no longer set up chances to tie the game. The red card did not signal the first instance of physical soccer. Tech and Texas were beating each other up from the opening kick. Besides the red card for Texas, both teams received three yellow cards topped off by a Texas player throwing down Beckie as though it were Wrestlemania. Stone said he was proud of how Tech kept its cool in a game so physical. However, he was surprised with the level of physicality Texas reached, Stone said. This is not a characteristic coach Angela Kelly’s teams share. Usually the games between Tech and Texas are clean. Despite Texas’ physical play, Tech came away with its 13th shutout victory of the season and remains unbeaten in conference. Beckie said it is difficult to explain how great it was to defeat rival Texas for the third-straight year on Tech’s home field. “I just don’t think there is anyone in this conference let alone the country that can match our love and passion for this

“After we scored we really felt like we settled down their crowd,” he said. “Because at halftime they had the momentum, there’s no question that they had the momentum. We jumped up (in the first quarter) and then they scored. They got 24 to our seven and had momentum going in.” The Cowboys forced another threeand-out from the Red Raiders on the following possession and extended their lead during a three-play, 68-yard drive capped off by a 67-yard run from senior quarterback Clint Chelf. Gundy said Tech began to load the box and send pressure after the first half, which allowed the openings for Chelf once he advanced through the first wave of potential tacklers. “They were taking more chances

with blitz and pressure to stop the running game,” he said. “In our opinion, they didn’t feel like they could do it in base. In the first half, we were running the ball effectively. So they were getting other guys in the box and trying to bring some pressure. And when you do that, in basics of football, sometimes you’re more vulnerable in the middle of the field.” Freshman quarterback Davis Webb threw his second interception of the evening on the following drive. Webb competed 45 of his 71 pass attempts for 425 yards and two touchdowns. Kingsbury said Webb’s performance was a display of peaks and valleys, but ultimately the blame cannot all be placed on Webb. “I didn’t think the supporting cast played that well either,” he said. “I thought we had some plays to be made and didn’t make them. To keep up, when teams are scoring that much, you’ve got

to make all the plays.” Redshirt freshman Keenon Ward made a play for Tech’s defense following Webb’s turnover. The safety intercepted Chelf and regained possession for Tech’s offense with six minutes and 33 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Junior tight end Jace Amaro capped off the next drive for Tech with a oneyard touchdown catch from Webb, and Oklahoma State’s lead shrunk to 11. Amaro said although he registered career-highs in both receptions and yards, he still sees areas in which he can improve. “I dropped the ball. I fumbled,” he said. “I could care less about how many yards I had. I would rather have zero catches and win the game. I’ve always felt like that. That’s just me.” Amaro caught 15 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown. This marked the fourth consecutive game where Amaro gained at least 100 receiving yards.

Gundy said he believes Amaro will have a long career playing on Sundays. “I didn’t realize he was that big until I walked up to him after the game,” he said. “I would’ve been scared even more if I knew how big he was, but he’s really gifted. “I’m guessing the NFL is going to be real fired up about him. He’s going to play a long time.” Tech will attempt to snap its twogame losing streak when it faces Kansas State at 11 a.m. Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Adjustments will be made before the game against the Wildcats, Kingsbury said. “We’re big on watching the film first before we make any knee-jerk-type reaction,” he said. “So we’ll watch it tomorrow and there will definitely be some changes we make moving forward and got a lot of football left to play.” ➤➤sports@dailytoreador.com

ARLINGTON (AP) — Tony Romo turned Adrian Peterson’s homecoming from sweet to sour in the final minute. Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, and the Dallas Cowboys beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-23 Sunday. Romo’s 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown by Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium. The Cowboys (5-4) bounced

back from a devastating loss at Detroit by avoiding what probably would have been a more damaging defeat. Christian Ponder threw for a touchdown and ran for another score against his hometown team, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a fourth straight loss for the Vikings (1-7). Jason Witten had eight catches for 102 yards and a TD for Dallas. Romo’s first attempt to answer Peterson’s go-ahead score was an interception on a great play along the sideline by A.J. Jefferson. But the Vikings couldn’t convert that into points and gave Romo the ball back at the Dallas 10.

Tolbert scores 12, Tech defeats Angelo State By MICHAEL DUPONT II SportS Editor

Texas Tech’s men’s basketball team showed it will be more versatile following a 65-46 exhibition victory against Angelo State on Friday. Matching up against the Rams brought Angelo State’s coach, Chris Beard, back to the United Spirit Arena where he served 10 years as an associate head coach for the Red Raiders. Beard said he was thankful when Tech coach Tubby Smith granted Angelo State the opportunity to test its skills against a Division I program. “Frankly we try to call every Division I in the country every year, nobody looks forward to playing us,” he said. “We’ve had good players over the years, nothing I do, it’s just we have good players. And a lot of Division I’s won’t play us, but coach Smith

Kingsbury said committing a slew of mistakes like Tech did Saturday makes any game tough. “Lose the turnover battle and get outplayed on special teams against a really good team like (Oklahoma State),” Kingsbury said, “it’s hard winning the game.” However, the deficit did not prevent Tech from recognizing there were still three quarters of play. Tech exploded in the second

— from the first day — said that he would give us this opportunity and we’re very appreciative.” During his 10 years at Tech, Beard worked with former Red Raider coaches Bob Knight, Pat Knight and Billy Gillispie. Smith offers the Red Raiders’ program an opportunity to return to the success they grew accustomed to during Bob Knight’s tenure, Beard said. “People have asked me how I think he’ll do here at Tech since I’ve got some history and since I love this school,” he said. “I think he’ll do great. I think it’s going to be just like it was when coach (Bob) Knight got here. You know, coach Knight got here and gave the program instant credibility. I think we made four NCAA tournaments in our first six years here and I look for coach Smith to do the same kind of great things that coach Knight did.”

Junior forward Jordan Tolbert led the Red Raiders with a gamehigh 12 points and 11 rebounds. Assistant coach Alvin “Pooh” Williamson said Tolbert needs to continue improving his consistency, but overall Williamson was pleased with his performance. “He was pretty good,” he said. “He just had to get going a little bit, we just kind of started pounding (the ball inside) about the last 12 minutes of the game and he took over. And we needed him to, and he needs to do that hopefully night in and night out. It won’t always be like that obviously, but he just has to learn to bring it all the time, and he is. He’s working at it. So, I commend our guys, they’ve been a good group, the head coach goes out of town, they never dropped. They practiced hard, they were intense and they focused on the game plan that we gave them in

the scouting report and they did a good job.” Smith was away from the team Friday because he had to deal with the loss of his mother, Parthenia Smith, who died earlier in the week. Tolbert said in Smith’s absence, Williamson took a dictator’s approach to his coaching debut. “That was his first time being a head coach, I think, so he was just real strict,” he said. “He just wanted it to be perfect, almost perfect. So we just tried to go out and just be perfect.” The Red Raiders starting lineup consisted of sophomore guard Dusty Hannahs, junior guard Robert Turner, redshirt sophomore guard Toddrick Gotcher, redshirt senior forward Dejan Kravic and Tolbert. However, eight Red Raiders received 10 or more minutes during the game and saw a contribu-

tion of 31 points from the bench. Freshman guard Randy Onwuasor and senior guard Jamal Williams led the charge off the bench. Both scored doubledigit points in the winning effort. Williams logged 10 points, one rebound, one assist and a steal, while Onwuasor added 11 points and four rebounds in his debut as a Red Raider. The various new faces found ways to effectively make an impact and leave their fingerprints on the game, Williamson said. “I thought (Robert) Turner is still in the process, but he had a good game,” he said. “Randy Onwuasor, who had 11 points in 16 minutes, wish we could’ve got him some more minutes actually. But, those two guys in the backcourt, and then I thought Alex Foster played with great energy. I just wish we had a chance — we played a lot of guys on the front line — but Alex had great

energy. He did a great job guarding (Kenny Williams), their best player. Alex, for a freshman, he came in and didn’t back down. So I give all our new guys credit. They had an impact and they put their fingerprints on this game.” Both teams struggled with efficiency. Angelo State registered nine assists with 18 turnovers while Tech also logged nine assists and turned the ball over 17 times. There’s a simple solution to Tech’s turnover woes, Turner said. “Simply take care of the ball,” he said. “The way to score the ball is to keep the ball and make every possession count, so basically we’ve just got to protect the ball.” The Red Raiders return to the court at 7 p.m. Friday when they face Houston Baptist in the USA.

quarter with a 21-point comeback. Kingsbury said he enjoyed the effort Tech displayed to fight its way back into the game. Momentum seemed to flip after a big play on defense — not offense — for the Red Raiders. The Cowboys were stuck in their own territory forcing senior quarterback Clint Chelf to throw the ball, and sophomore linebacker Pete Robertson reacted to the pass instantly, returning Chelf ’s interception 21 yards for a touchdown. The game was reminiscent of a traditional Big 12 Conference

shootout, but the pendulum of luck needed when dealing with injuries did not swing in Tech’s favor. Injuries are not an excuse for how flat the Red Raiders played during the second half, Kingsbury said. The Red Raiders were not able to produce on their first two drives during the second half and from that point on, they were chasing the Cowboys, he said. As the third quarter commenced, injuries seemed to pile up. Junior receiver Bradley Marquez, junior right guard Beau

Carpenter, senior linebacker Terrence Bullitt and senior safety Tre’ Porter came out of the game at some point during the third quarter. Marquez was the only one who returned to the field. These injuries placed underclassmen in vital positions on defense, such as freshman defensive back Justis Nelson, who replaced Porter. Robertson said busted assignments became more prevalent when injuries forced the Red Raiders to put in replacements. He kept encouraging the young replacements even after

big plays were made on them, Robertson said. “If you don’t do your job on defense,” Robertson said, “one person can mess up and the ball can go right over your head or right down the middle without you seeing it. I just say with the busted assignments and injuries we need to step it up and get everybody right.” The Red Raiders’ errors amounted to three turnovers and eight penalties for 75 yards. These turnovers place them last in the conference in turnover margin. The defense has 15 take-

aways this season, but Tech also has given it up 22 times. The Red Raiders are not doing much better when it comes to discipline. They are the second-most penalized team in the conference with 41 penalties for 392 yards. Kingsbury said he still wants to see the Red Raiders play a clean game with fewer penalties, but recognizes effort is not the root of Tech’s woes. “It’s been a great effort all year,” he said. “We’ve got to clean things up. We’ve got to play better than that.”

Portland Trail Blazers beat San Antonio Spurs 115-105 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Nicolas Batum said the 3-pointer at the buzzer that gave him a triple-double against San Antonio was the worst thing he’s ever done in his career. With the victory already in hand, Batum tossed his shot up from about 25 feet to cap the Portland Trail Blazers’ 115-105 victory over the Spurs on Saturday night. The forward from France finished with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. He said he honestly didn’t believe it would fall. And when it did, he immediately felt bad about it. “I don’t mean to disrespect this team,” Batum said. “I’ve got three triple-doubles in my career. This one didn’t count.” Damian Lillard had 25 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, and LaMarcus Aldridge added 24 points for the Blazers, who led by as many as 13 points in winning their 13th straight home opener. But it was Batum’s finish that provided the drama for the fans at the Moda Center, formerly the Rose Garden Arena. Marco Belinelli hit a 3-pointer that pulled the Spurs to 104-100 with 1:24 left. After Lillard made two free throws, Tim Duncan scored on a running hook shot.

Wesley Matthews dunked for Portland but Belinelli hit another 3 to make it 108-105 with 19 seconds left. Lillard and Batum made free throws before Batum hit his long 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left. Batum casually threw the ball up, then shrugged in disbelief when it swished through the net. “I didn’t really think about it but I know it was a bad thing to do. I want to apologize to the Spurs organization,” he said. “That didn’t show a good side of myself or the Blazers organization. I did not want to disrespect this team. “ Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said no offense was taken. “Why would I be mad at that?” he asked. “He’s a good kid. I don’t care.” Only five other Blazers have had as many three triple-doubles with the team: Sidney Wicks, Bill Walton, Clyde Drexler, Terry Porter and Damon Stoudemire. Duncan finished with 24 points in the first loss this season for the Western Conference champions. The 16-year veteran sat out the Spurs’ 91-85 win Friday night against the Lakers after bruising his chest in Wednesday’s season-opening victory over Memphis. “We’re gonna win games and

we’re gonna lose games. It’s just how it goes,” Duncan said. “We’re gonna use the entire 82 games to put a team together and have everybody on the same page once the playoffs start. “We’re gonna win some games and we’re gonna lose some games and we’re not going to freak out about it.” The Blazers were also playing the second game of a back-to-back. Aldridge scored nine of his 25 points late in the fourth quarter to help the Blazers hold off Denver 113-98, snapping the Nuggets’ 23-game regular-season home winning streak. The Blazers jumped to an 18-11 lead against the Spurs, with Aldridge scoring 10 points. San Antonio tied it at 26 on Boris Diaw’s short jumper. Portland went ahead 37-31 on Lillard’s 3-pointer 3:58 before the break, and last season’s Rookie of the Year added two long jumpers to extend the lead to 41-33. Aldridge made a fast-break jumper to give Portland a 50-39 halftime. He led all scorers with 14 points in the first half. The Spurs closed the gap to 71-67 in the third quarter on Diaw’s basket and free throw, and Manu Ginobili’s 3-pointer. But Lillard hit a clutch 3 just before the third quarter ended to give the Blazers an 82-74 lead.
