A SOLAR ECLIPSE OF THE HEART

You’ll have to forgive our cheesy headline, but how could we pass the opportunity to plant an earworm of Bonnie Tyler’s biggest hit? Speaking of which, according to ABC News, 1983’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” shot up to number one on the iTunes charts, and Tyler performed her song at the Royal Caribbean’s special Total Eclipse Cruise on Monday. Monday’s solar eclipse unified millions of spectators as they stepped outside with protective glasses or pinhole cameras and tuned into NASA’s live streaming of the event. What’s Up asked viewers to submit their eclipse photos for a chance to have them printed on this page and win a gift card to Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Congratulations to the winner, Daniel Mascorro! We also gathered photos from our staff and other contributors. Did you miss your chance to experience the solar eclipse live? Don’t worry – the next one will be visible in the U.S. in 2024.

HOW UTEP AIMS TO PREVENT SEXUAL ASSAULT By Denise Nelson-Prieto / comment: @whatsupweekly

As new and returning students gear up for college, University of Texas at El Paso officials continue to stress the resources available for the prevention and treatment of sexual assault. “Our philosophy on this campus is we have to be holistic in our approach,” said Catie McCorry-Andalis, associate vice president for the Office of Student Life and dean of students at UTEP. “We have a robust amount of training and development available, including compliance modules, speakers to address particular populations on our campus and really innovative professional development programs.” The findings of a report released in March – which surveyed schools in the University of Texas System, including UTEP – furthered UTEP officials’ mission to prevent sexual assault. Called the Cultivating Learning and Safe Environments survey, or CLASE, the study asked 3,012 UTEP students about their experiences with sexual assault on and off campus, how the university handled such incidents and the effect these experiences had on them. The survey found that 7 percent of UTEP students reported being raped and one in five students reported being sexually harassed by another student. On a

nationwide level, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network reports that sexual violence is the most prevalent type of crime on college campuses based on the National Crime Victimization Survey. Under the Title IX policy, which was enacted by the Department of Education decades ago, all institutions of higher learning are required to respond swiftly to allegations and acts of sexual assault and misconduct. UTEP has rigorous training programs for all faculty, staff and students to help curb sexual violence. The programs include the online training course Haven, which walks users through real-world scenarios, takes an in-depth look at things like healthy relationships, consent and sexual assault and explores campus laws and policies regarding sexual violence. The university also facilitates the Do One Thing program, a comprehensive strategy that teaches students and staff members not to be bystanders of sexual assault and harassment, but instead reporters of such incidents. Students can participate in workshops lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to 7 hours. Campaigns such as Take Back the Night and the Clothesline Project also boost awareness of sexual assault on the campus and in the community. For the

Clothesline Project, T-shirts designed by survivors of sexual assault are displayed at various locations throughout campus. Each year, UTEP hosts the Take Back the Night campaign. The nationwide initiative began in the 1970s and gathers community and school leaders, advocates and organizers to combat sexual abuse and violence. The M.I.N.E.R.S. Advocacy Initiative was formed in 2010 at UTEP. The program seeks to promote awareness about stalking, dating violence and sexual assault, among other issues. The initiative regularly hosts tabling events, forums and films that deal with this issue on campus. McCorry-Andalis said one obstacle the university faces is inaccurate numbers of sexual assault due to underreporting. Reports within the past few years reflect this quandary nationally and locally. A 2014 U.S. Department of Justice report, which surveyed female student sexual assault victims ages 18 to 24, revealed that 20 percent report their incidents to police. Similarly, The CLASE survey revealed that 11 percent of UTEP students who experienced sexual violence at school reported it. To try to combat underreporting, school officials are looking at different ways to encourage reporting and to ease the process.

The university handbook of operating procedures lists several on and off-campus groups, including the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence and Sierra Medical Center, that offer services and support for victims. McCorry-Andalis stressed that a rigorous network of support is available to anyone who experiences sexual violence, whether the incident occurred on or off campus. The University Counseling Center and Student Health Services center are equipped to handle these types of situations, she added. “We’re trying to make reporting as easy as possible because we have no tolerance for [sexual assault],” McCorry-Andalis said. “We want to help students every step of the way.” WHAT’S UP

GUEST COLUMN By Tim Dahlberg, AP Sports Columnist comment: @whatsupweekly

LAS VEGAS (AP) — It’s only 2 ounces of foam, 4 if you count both hands. Still, it was enough to make Conor McGregor quite happy. Floyd Mayweather Jr., too, because it likely means more sales for what could be the richest fight ever. Nevada boxing regulators went out of their way to give a gift to both fighters, approving an exemption to the rule requiring 10-ounce gloves for the 154-pound fight so that both fighters can wear 8-ounce gloves. And just like that, the fight appeared more competitive – at least to some. Oddsmaker William Hill immediately boosted the odds of McGregor winning, though they are still low. And UFC chief Dana White didn’t wait long to trumpet the smaller gloves as a game changer. “It affects the fight big time,” White said. “When we were in our original negotiations it was something they would not even talk about. I don’t know what changed, but I’m glad it did. It makes it so much more fun.” The underlying school of thought is that McGregor will have a better chance of knocking Mayweather out with smaller gloves, though Mayweather has fought all but three of his professional fights with 8-ounce gloves and has never been knocked out in any of them. The fight matches an Irish UFC cham-

lations that call for 8-ounce gloves in fights 147 pounds or smaller, and 10-ounce gloves for anything above that. In the 11 years since, that has been the rule. Until last Wednesday, Aug. 16, there had been no exceptions. But tickets and pay-per-view had to be sold. More people had to be convinced that McGregor actually has a chance in the ring with Mayweather. And convinced they were, at least the ones betting at William Hill. Oddsmakers there lowered the lopsided odds favoring Mayweather from minus-600 to minus-550 because they will be fighting with smaller gloves. “Now that gloves are eight ounces, I don’t believe he makes it out of the second round,” McGregor said. “I do not see him absorbing the blows in the first two rounds.” Most in boxing scoff at that, saying the size of the gloves would matter only if they were both forced to fight in 4-ounce UFC gloves that are open past the knuckle. There’s also a school of thought that smaller gloves will actually help Mayweather by making his hands even quicker. But by allowing smaller gloves, commission members did more than just try to lure a few more people to Las Vegas next week. They made a decision that, in theory at least, could affect the outcome of the fight. And by any standard, that’s a bad decision to make.

KAPPY’S CORNER By Steve Kaplowitz / Comment: @whatsupweekly

Despite the fact that the 2017 UTEP football season is just a little more than a week away, some Miner fans have already painted a picture of doom and gloom for the upcoming campaign. The team lost star running back Aaron Jones to the NFL and the Miners will rely on El Pasoan Ryan Metz to lead the offense at quarterback. No matter what happens on the football field this season, do not expect head coach Sean Kugler’s job to be in jeopardy any time soon. Kugler signed a contract extension after the 2014 season when his Miners won seven games and played in the New Mexico Bowl. His new five-year deal expires Aug. 31, 2020. If UTEP wanted to buy him out at any point, they would need to pay Kugler his annual base salary of $289,541 for the remaining years on his contract. There is little to no chance that UTEP could afford to do that, and the school’s boosters like Kugler and support his direction for the football program. Let’s take a closer look at his two biggest accomplishments since taking over the team from Mike Price in December 2012. The first big change is academics. Kugler preached discipline with his team on and off the field, and he has made UTEP’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) a priority since coming back to El Paso. In addition, he has stressed the fact that his players graduate with a degree. In fact, in the 2015-16 season, the Miners’ 980 APR was second to Rice (984) among the 12 Texas Division 1 football programs. That top APR score could allow UTEP to play in a bowl game even if they finish with only five wins. One of the biggest complaints I used to hear around town from Miner fans is that their football team is lacking El Paso standouts. These fans used to say that if UTEP built their program with the best talent in the city, more people would come to watch them play. From the first day that he arrived back at UTEP, Kugler preached that he would make local players a priority with his recruiting. He currently has 30 El Pasoans on his 2017 roster and another two players from Las Cruces. Many of those El Paso players are on the Miners’ two-deep to begin the season. Despite the huge influx of local talent, fans have not lived up to their word and filled the Sun Bowl to support the UTEP program. Unfortunately, Kugler’s positive achievements with the Miners has not yet transformed his program into a consistent winner. He won just two games during his first season as head coach, but he took the Miners to the postseason with seven wins in year two. However, he won five games in year three and four games last season. In his four years as UTEP’s head football coach, Kugler’s record is 16-31. As his teams have lost games, the crowds at the

Sun Bowl continue to decline. Here is UTEP’s average attendance over the last four seasons:

2013: 28,375 (2-10) 2014: 28,377 (7-6) 2015: 23,212 (5-7) 2016: 23,001 (4-8)

Last season was a little misleading, since UTEP drew over 68,000 fans for their first two home games against NMSU and Army. If you average the final five games at the Sun Bowl, the Miners averaged only 18,598 per contest. On paper, the 2017 football schedule looks brutal for UTEP. They open up at Oklahoma on national television before their home opener against Rice on Sept. 9 and Arizona on Sept. 15. Then they play road games against NMSU and Army in consecutive weeks. The Miners play three of their first five home games by Oct. 7 and they finish C-USA play with three of their final four games on the road in November. It should not come as a surprise that most of the preseason magazines have picked the Miners to finish near the bottom of the standings in C-USA’s west division. With a schedule like this, Kugler needs support from the community more than ever this season. Instead of dismissing the Miners before they take their first snap of the 2017 season, it would be great if the community would rally behind Kugler and his team and give UTEP the kind of home field advantage that they so desperately need. ___ Since 1997, Steve Kaplowitz has hosted “Sportstalk” weekday afternoons 4-7 p.m. on 600 ESPN El Paso. Over the last 17 years, he has also worked for UTEP and NMSU as a play-byplay broadcaster, for UTEP telecasts on Time Warner Cable and for KDBC-TV and KTSM-TV as a sports anchor/reporter.

COOKING ON DEADLINE: KOREAN-STYLE GRILLED SHORT RIBS By Katie Workman, Associated Press comment: @whatsupweekly

Those who love short ribs LOVE them. Those who haven’t cooked them at home before might be a little intimidated by them. Let’s bridge that gap. In general, short ribs have to be cooked either low and slow, or very quickly over high heat so that they don’t become tough. This recipe calls for almost flash grilling, just 3 or 4 minutes on each side. Because this is a fast-cooked short rib recipe, the cut you’ll want to buy is “flanken-style,” where the ribs are cut across the bones into thin slices. This allows the surface to caramelize while keeping the middle juicy and tender. You can serve these on their own, with a big pile of fluffy rice. I like to serve this the way a number of Korean meat dishes are served, with rice and lettuce leaves, and some condiments of your choice. A bit of the meat and a bit of the rice goes into a lettuce leaf, along with any extras, and then you fold up the lettuce around the filling. This is known as ssam, or lettuce wraps, and they are a lot of fun. The balance of the crisp vegetables, fresh herbs, rich meat and fragrant rice works every time, even though it might be slightly different every time.

Part of its charm. Add what you like, skip what you don’t, and wrap and eat. Along with the easily available suggestions for add-ins below, sometimes kimchi is offered, and a condiment called ssamjang, which translates to “wrapping sauce.” If you can find either, add them to the offerings. You can also broil these instead of grilling during the months when you are cozying up to your stove instead of your grill.

KOREAN-STYLE GRILLED SHORT RIBS Serves 8 / Start to finish: 13 hours (included 12 hours marinating time)

Ingredients: - 5 scallions, trimmed and cut into pieces - 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce - 1/2 cup brown sugar

- 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger - 1 tablespoon minced garlic

- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar - 1 tablespoon sesame oil

- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper - 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

- 2 1/2 pounds bone-in beef short ribs , cut across the bones into 1/2 inch slices - Cooked rice

Optional, for serving: - 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

- Large lettuce leaves, such as tender Boston or Bibb - Slivered scallions This July 2017 photo shows Korean-style grilled short ribs in New York. In general, short ribs have to be cooked either low and slow, or very quickly over high heat so that they don’t become tough. This recipe calls for almost flash grilling, just 3 or 4 minutes on each side. (Katie Workman via AP)

- Cucumbers and carrots, cut into matchsticks - Slivered radishes

- Fresh herbs, such as basil, mint and cilantro - Sriracha or other hot chili sauce

Directions

Place the scallions, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Place the short ribs in a container, pour the marinade over them and turn to coat well. Cover the short ribs and refrigerate from 12 to 24 hours. Just before grilling, toast the sesame seeds, if using, by heating a small skillet over medium high heat, then adding the seeds. Toss and stir for a few minutes until they become deeper golden in color, but watch carefully as they can burn quickly. Transfer to a small plate. Preheat the grill to medium high. Remove the short ribs from the marinade. Grill for about 4 minutes on each side, until the outside is caramelized and the middle is medium-rare. Allow the meat to sit for 5 minutes before slicing across the grain and serving with the hot rice. Or, if you prefer (and do consider this), slice the meat thinly and serve it with any or all of the suggested accompaniments. Let each diner wrap up some meat and rice with whatever extras they want, and make it an interactive dinner. ___

KUSTOM KULTURE: A LOVE FOR RETRO RIDES, TUNES AND FASHION By Denise Nelson-Prieto comment: @whatsupweekly

Bad boys, hot chicks, fast cars and rock ’n’ roll are some of the elements that make up what’s known as “kustom kulture.” No longer an underground movement relegated to greasers like Danny Zuko, kustom kulture has been embraced as a lifestyle by thousands of Americans – including many in the borderland. The movement is a throwback to the 1950s and a celebration of some of the elements of the era that comprised an entire sub-culture. American working class youth began to diversify and embraced some of American society’s “seedier” aspects, like

gangs and a whole new genre of music that blended rock and blues. An essential component of kustom kulture is the love of hot rods and restored vintage vehicles. Kustom kulture disciples have a veritable love affair with their rides, investing countless hours and cash into perfecting their cars. Alfred Seelig, car lover and member of local car club Hard Knocks, has three pre1960s rides he’s purchased and refurbished over the past 18 years. “My love of hotrods started as a kid with Hot Wheels,” he said. “And I love the 1950s era. I like wearing all black and driv-

The sheer amount of time, money and energy that kustom kulture lifestylers put into their automobiles is evidence that these cars are much more than a utilitarian item relegated to a mere mode of transportation.

Seelng served as a judge for the event last year, when it was held at Ascarate Park. Going on its seventh year this Labor Day weekend, Rockabilly Riot has helped spotlight the enduring elements of kustom kulture in the borderland. “That weekend, we’re bringing the ’50s back to El Paso,” Rockabilly Riot organizer Jake Baca said. “We’re targeting everybody from 25 to 85. We want to attract older people who are going to bring their kids and their grandkids and listen to rockabilly music and check out awesome cars.” What goes better with cars than babes? Pinup girls are another seminal element of kustom kulture. The inception of the pinup

Where did the lowrider phenomenon begin?

girl concept dates back to the late 1800s. A girl-next-door, fresh-faced appeal coupled with a sexy, flirtatious allure has kept hearts thumping ever since. Although the history of this art form dates back to a century before, it really took off during World War II. Enlisted men took photos of movie stars with them overseas to offer a beautiful distraction from all the grunge and gore of war. Movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth and brunette bombshell Bettie Page dominated the pinup girl scene. Their hourglass figures, flowing hair and rosy cheeks became synonymous with naughty-but-nice charm and appeal. These days, pinup models come in all shapes and sizes. Plus-sized model Miss Mozzy Dee has embraced not only the look of the 1950s bombshells, but the entire kustom kulture lifestyle. “I live this lifestyle,” she said. “When I go to work, I wear my bandanas, my scarves and my cat eyes. My co-workers tell me, ‘Wow! You look like you’re straight out of a movie.’” She plans to co-host the Rockabilly Riot’s pinup contest, along with renowned El Paso natives and pinup girls Lisa Love and Ruby Champagne. Love is a pinup icon in today’s rockabilly and kustom kulture scene. In 2010, Champagne took the Miss Viva Las Vegas title at one of the country’s premiere rockabilly events, Viva Las Vegas. Dee and her sister are teaming up with Kitty Luv Photography and Wardrobe Divas to offer a styling, photo and outfit package at Rockabilly Riot.

Rockabilly music is an incomparable facet of kustom kulture. Genre progenitors include Elvis and Johnny Cash. They were the original bad boys who bucked the system and helped create an enduring art form. Known for its fast-paced swing and slap bass, the music is associated with a backlash against existing societal conventions. L.A.-based psychobilly rockers, Tiger Army, are the perfect addition to this year’s Rockabilly Riot. They will headline the show Saturday, Sept. 2. Other bands include local groups The Devotions, The Pinsetters and Fixed Idea. Pachuco Jose Y Los Diamantes will also perform their brand of ’40s-era Mexican R&B. Through car clubs and annual festivals like Viva Las Vegas and Rockabilly Riot, kustom kulture has withstood the test of time and continues to infiltrate and influence all age groups.

Dear Mexican: I was reading an article about lowriders being modern pieces of art and displayed prominently in museums around the world. My question is where did the lowrider phenomenon begin? Do you have any interest in writing a little history piece? I think it would be an interesting piece, given its place in pop culture and Mexican origins. Low and Slow in Nuevo México Dear Pocho: I hate to break it to Chicano academics, but lowriders didn’t even begin with Chicanos. The term “lowrider,” besides being a sartorial adjective in use for over a century, was first applied to hoodlums of any race, then became lingo in Southern California kustom kulture. Indeed, the earliest references the Mexican could find to cars as “lowriders” is in the classified section of newspapers in the late 1960s, under the heading “Hot Rods.” Telling is a September 13, 1970 column in the Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram that mourned the disappearance of greasers (in the rebel sense, NOT the Mexican sense) in the face of the counterculture movement. “He was and is, of course, a low-rider, a cruiser, a hot-rodder, a Levi guy and a hair boy,” the column stated, hinting that the original lowriders were more likely to look like James Dean than a homie from Eastlos. That’s not to deny Chicanos that the culture of fixing up boats and bombs, and driving them low and slow, is now dominated by them – if anything, we appropriated gabacho culture, for once!

Las Cruces Comic Con creates a haven for nerds By Xchelzin Peña/ comment: @whatsupweekly

Comic book heroes, anime, sci-fi characters and other genre personalities from popular movies, television shows and video games will all come together for the fourth annual Las Cruces Comic Con. The event will take place from Aug. 25-27 at the Las Cruces Convention Center, located at 680 E. University Ave. Short for comic convention, a comic con is a pop culture celebration where attendees can participate and experience a multitude of exhibits, meet celebrity guests and shop for comics, games and collector’s items. Participants are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite fictional characters, which is also known as cosplay. During last year’s convention, an attendee dressed up as Wun Wun, the giant from “Game of Thrones,” and placed first in the costume contest. Las Cruces Comic Con was started in 2014 by Troy Stegner, owner of Zia Comics. He said he started Comic Con in Las Cruces because there were no events directed towards the Trekkies nor video game fanatics.

WED. AUG. 23 Make Them Suffer Metalcore with openers Enterprise Earth, SPITE and an unannounced local. All ages. Doors at 8 p.m. Rockhouse Bar & Grill, 9828 Montana Ave., 6 p.m., $15 adv., $20 day, 915-591-7625, holdmyticket. com.

At the Venue at Union Plaza, 511 Western, 6-10 p.m., free, RSVP req., 214-5590122.

“There was nothing in town for us nerdy people,” Stegner said. “Everything was gun shows, home shows or events centered around liquor, so we decided to try Comic Con.” This year’s convention will include a costume contest, karaoke night, card game tournaments and Q&A sessions with celebrity guests. Special appearances include Dante Basco, known for his character Rufio in “Hook,” award-winning cosplayer Missy Mayhem, Gary Busey of “Leathal Weapon” and comic book writer Meredith Finch, who’s written for both Zenescope and DC Comics. She’s also the wife of best-selling comic artist David Finch, who will also be at the convention. The convention will also feature plenty of regional talent, including comic book artist Jaime Carillo, who’s done work for Marvel and Heavy Metal Magazine and cosplayer Christina Dark. Mindy Sterling, known for her role as Frau Farbissina in the “Austin Powers” series, was set to appear at the convention, canceled due to a schedule conflict. Despite her withdrawal, Stegner said the number of guest stars will exceed last year’s.
