Johnson named Player of the Week

Stanley Johnson has been honored for his efforts in a pair of Arizona wins last week with Pac-12 Player of the Week honors, announced by the league office on Monday.

The honor is the second of the season for Johnson, who was also named Pac-12 Player of the Week on Dec. 1, 2014, after earning MVP honors at the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

The Fullerton, Calif., native averaged 20.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game as the Wildcats claimed wins over Colorado and eighth-ranked Utah at McKale Center. He shot 48.1 percent (13-of-27) from the floor and 81.3 percent (13-of-16) from the free throw line in the two contests.

Johnson got the week off to a fast start with 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting in a 68-54 win over CU on Thursday, marking both a season high and his first 20-point game as a collegian. He added eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in the game.

Saturday’s win over No. 8/8 Utah saw Johnson battle early foul trouble but post 18 points, nine rebounds and two steals in the second half as UA pulled away from the Utes for a 69-51 victory. He was 6-of-12 from the floor and 5-of-7 from the line, sparking Arizona to a lead as high as 21 points in the first meeting of top-10 teams in the Pac-12 since 2008.

Nine of Johnson’s 17 total rebounds on the week came on the offensive end, as UA was +18.0 on the glass for the week and averaged 15.0 offensive rebounds in the two games. The victories over Colorado and Utah also ran the Wildcats’ home winning streak to 32 games, the second-longest active streak in the country.

Johnson is Arizona’s leading scorer and rebounder with averages of 14.6 points and 6.8 rebounds, respectively. His mark of 1.6 steals per game ranks second on the team and sixth in the Pac-12.

He and Duke’s Jahlil Okafor are the only two freshmen in the major college basketball conferences averaging at least 14 points and six rebounds per game. Johnson is shooting 48.2 percent from the floor, including 40.4 percent from three-point range, and 70.2 percent from the free throw line. He has two double-doubles on the season and has led Arizona in scoring 10 times.

Wildcats down shorthanded Colorado

Arizona took advantage of two Colorado starters out with injury and beat the visiting Buffaloes 68-54 despite a career night from Askia Booker.

With teammates Josh Scott and Xavier Johnson in street clothes, Booker scored 30 points, including 6-9 shooting from three.

Arizona got 20 points from freshman Stanley Johnson, while Elliott Pitts added 12 on 4-7 three-point shooting.

 The Buffaloes opened the half with seven of the first nine points, including a Booker three, but they gave their senior guard a rest and Arizona responded with five-quick points, including a Kaleb Tarczewski three-point play, just moments after Colorado shifted to a zone defense. After Tarczewski converted the free throw, the Wildcats led 44-42.

Booker came back in the game and promptly scored his 23rd point of the game, a long jumper. Booker missed his next two shots, but remained confident. A drive into the lane resulted in a foul and his two free throws pulled Colorado within six, 44-38.

Colorado cut the Arizona lead to four with a pair of easy buckets at the hoop, including a Jaron Hopkins two handed jam that drew a Sean Miller timeout, but the Wildcats responded with back-to-back threes by Elliott Pitts and T.J. McConnell that pushed the lead to 53-42.

After four quick points from Tarczewski, Booker answered with his sixth three of the night, but hurt his ankle and went to the locker room with his Buffs down 61-49 with 5:20 to play. Booker was out for 1:28 but Arizona could not take advantage as neither team scored. Booker’s return did not spark the Buffaloes, as the Wildcats scored seven of the next nine points, including four Johnson foul shots and an Elliott Pitts three-pointer.

The 10th ranked Wildcats improved to 14-2 on the season and will host No. 8 Utah on Saturday.

Arts and Sciences Are Writing a New Love Story Together

Those at the UA who are advancing the medical humanities want to see the arts become more closely integrated with the STEM fields. It's picking up steam.

What are the benefits of transforming scientific data into works of art?

Could poetry help shape the ways people positively connect with the natural environment?

And what is the value of bringing conversations about literature into the medical school curriculum?

Across campus, University of Arizona students and employees are answering those questions — with tangible results — through courses, programs, workshops and publications.

Such a movement represents an effort to reconcile a perceived disconnect between fields such as science and medicine and others such as the arts and humanities. Those involved say their work is meant to expand cross-discipline collaborations, lead to more sustainable and authentic practices, and help improve how people live and connect with others and the natural world.

It's about bringing science and medicine into the liberal arts, or vice versa.

"Being exposed to scenarios and content that are different from what one typically experiences daily can help one to feel and to see things differently, allowing for appreciation of the human condition in a different light," said Ersilia Anghel, a UA College of Medicine student and editor of Harmony Magazine, said about the collaborative work she shares with her colleagues.

"We encourage people to share and to be open about the fact that having creative, reflective experiences invites a very profound and very distinct way of perceiving the world," Anghel said about the work of Harmony Magazine.

The magazine, a publication of the UA Program in Medical Humanities in the College of Medicine, is now in its 10th year. It began as an in-house publication meant to complement medical school training with submissions mostly from students, employees and patients at the Arizona Health Sciences Center.

Today, Harmony Magazine accepts submissions from across the U.S. and is disseminated nationally and internationally. Students, medical and health care professionals, patients and general community members regularly submit artwork, photography, poetry and prose. Some explore their experience as patients. Others detail the lives of medical care providers. Some even choose to share about vacations and their reactions to events.

The magazine joins numerous other examples on campus aimed at amplifying conversations about humanism, and to further integrate the sciences and humanities.

Ellen McMahon, a UA School of Art professor, develops work around the interaction between art and environmental research. McMahon regularly curates art pieces to appear on display at the UA's Bryant Bannister Tree Ring Building, which houses the University'sLaboratory for Tree-Ring Research.

Diana Liverman, a Regents' Professor in the School of Geography and Development and a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, has argued that the arts and humanities can push people to connect with others and the natural world in ways that are important for sustainability.

UA College of Engineering students have been involved in humanitarian efforts, including designing and building water-level detectors to be used in countries in Africa.

In October, faculty hosted the "The Art of Planetary Science" exhibition, featuring more than 200 pieces of art produced by 90 artists and scientists. In response to the exhibition,Dante Lauretta, who is leading the UA's OSIRIS-REx NASA mission, wrote in a column about the unification he sees between scientific research and artistic endeavors.

"Through our work, scientists seek to understand the nature of our universe and the laws that govern its evolution," Lauretta wrote. "We strive to describe natural processes in the most precise language possible — that of mathematics. However, creating scientific knowledge also requires thought, creativity, attention to detail and imagination. It is not unlike creating art, though the methods may vary."

The School of Information: Science, Technology and Arts regularly connects faculty from fields such as computer science, linguistics, studio arts, music and education to teach courses and facilitate research projects to strengthen artificial technology capabilities, whether it be for better human-computer interactions or enhanced research capabilities. 

On the opposite side of campus is the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, which is working to revolutionize health care through the embodiment and teaching of healing-oriented practices with attention not only to the body, but also to the mind and spirit.

Dr. Ron Grant, director of the Program in Medical Humanities and Harmony Magazine, said the growing popularity of both the magazine and the program illustrates the need to expand such initiatives.

"Medicine is about improving the human condition. Somehow, the practice of humanism in medicine got lost in the shuffle of technology and information overload," Grant said. "When you have to deal with such a large knowledge base, the humanities can get pushed aside in the interest of efficiency. But being a caring, compassionate practitioner is one of the most important things, if not the most important part, about being a medical specialist." 

Through the Program in Medical Humanities, which offers elective courses to medical students, Grant also involves his students in a reflective reading project, which involves the student with faculty members who teach creative writing.

Research indicates that practices such as reflective thinking, storytelling and journaling can help people to identify areas within themselves and in their lives that require improvement. Such practices also are known to improve self-awareness and to help with understanding new concepts and ideas.

"People who have improved self-awareness and a strong reflective capacity are better practitioners," said Grant, who has a degree in creative writing and has taught creative nonfiction.

In addition to Harmony Magazine, the program hosts Art Aloud, a monthly spoken-word gathering, and movie nights. The program also has a speaker series and has invited authors, poets, artists, health correspondents, film producers and others to speak about the intersection of medicine, the arts and humanism.

"In medical school, you learn facts, often logical and linear. With the arts, you learn to step back, appreciate and observe before attempting to modulate space, encouraging the use of a different part of your brain," Anghel said.

In the absence of major curricular changes, efforts to engage people in authentic conversations about humanism and self-reflection are essential, she said.

"We can learn to be present and calm, taking a different approach to the practice of contemporary medicine," Anghel said. "This allows more peace in interactions. The patient feels cared for and comforted, and the practitioner is not overrun. It becomes a more fluid experience."

S.H.I.E.L.D half season finale delivers

On Tuesday we got the fall finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and we got more questions than answers. Some characters are dead, others “dead” and a few more transformed.

I have to admit, my initial viewing left me thinking “that was cool, but…” I like the episode, but felt we lacked the answers we were waiting for. Then I did a little research.

Confession time, I grew up a comic book geek. I can recite trivia and continuity from about 1975-1996, but after graduating from college the hobby priced me out. I would keep tabs, mostly by picking up occasional graphic novels or flipping through magazines, but I was no longer a diehard. That is why I missed a few of the big reveals in the finale.

We knew Sky (Chloe Bennett) had a secret and we were pretty sure it involved the blue alien from last season, but now it appears we know a lot more. Her father Cal (Kyle MacLachlan) referred to her as “Daisy” and a quick google search reveled that she is a character named Daisy Johnson who is a superhero called Quake, who happens to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. in the comics. Didn’t know that? Don’t worry, neither did I and I have about 30 boxes of comics taking up closet space in my guest bedroom and my father’s house. Over the past 10-15 years  S.H.I.E.L.D. has become more important in the Marvel Universe (duh, just look at the Avengers and the latest Captain America movie), and apparently Quake is important.

The one thing I did get, and got a few episodes ago, is that MacLachlan is essentially the comic character Mr. Hyde, though I doubt he will ever be called that.

We also know, (thanks google) that the mist that emits from the crystals is something called “Terrigen Mist” and that is what gives the Inhumans their powers? Who are the Inhumans? Humans that were genetically altered by the alien race the Kree (blue aliens) thousands of years ago. The Inhumans are slated for a Marvel movie in 2018.

Didn’t get that from the episode? Don’t worry, they only hinted at it. I am sure it will be more explained next March when the show resumes. That’s right, the show will go on hiatus until March, but until then ABC will run Agent Carter, a precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D. set in the 1940’s and incorporating characters from the first Captain American movie.

It was an up and down half season for the show. The  S.H.I.E.L.D. on the run storyline had its moments, but also plenty of frustrations. A lot of the new characters really worked, I was fond of Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter and especially any time Patton Oswalt appeared as one of the many Koenig’s. However, Fitz’s (Iain De Caestecker) brain damage and unresolved feelings for Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) should have been resolved long ago.

All told the show has found its legs and it is nice to see that Marvel Studios is actually letting the show exist in the Marvel Universe, as opposed to the first half season where it seemed like everything was off limits.

Other Revelations and Cliffhangers:

It seems as if Tripp (B.J. Britt) is dead. He was hit by shards of the Obelisk, turned to stone and crumbled away.

Like Skye, Raina (Ruth Negga) was hit by the Terrigen Mist and transformed into something, we just don’t know what.

Dr. Whitehall (Reed Diamond) is “dead.”  Agent Coulson shot him and he was declared dead, but what major villain dies from a single gunshot wound, especially a viallain who has reversed the aging process. I doubt we’ve seen the last of Whitehall (or Diamond who is seemingly trying to appear on every television show).

Other than that, Mac is still possessed, everyone else on the team is trapped in the rapidly collapsing temple and Ward has been shot and is on the run with Agent 33, who has been brainwashed by Whitehall and her programming is failing now that she believes he is dead.

Cats get a glimpse of the future in blowout

It was obvious pretty early on that Arizona was vastly superior to Utah Valley on Tuesday night’s 87-56 win. The Wildcats won by 29 points and midway through the second half had doubled up the Wolverines 64-32. The lopsided nature of the game allowed Arizona to showcase their entire freshman class and it gave us glimpse of a bright future.

Stanley Johnson had another great game, but he’s the present not the future. Unless something surprising happens, he will not live in Tucson by June. Next year at this time he will be cutting a seven-figure paycheck.

Jonson had a strong game, shooting 5-7 from the field, and making all four of his shots inside the arc. He also grabbed seven rebounds, had three assists and three steals. The only negatives are 3-7 free throw shooting and three turnovers.

Dusan Ristic not only had the best game of his career, but was the game’s MVP. The freshman big man scored 14 points, one less than Johnson, but did so on 5-6 shooting, showcasing some really nice moves in the paint. He should be earning more playing time and may be a little ahead of starter Kaleb Tarczewski in terms of offense, though Tarczewski is a better rebounder, defender and eats up space in the paint.

“His offense is ahead of his defense, scoring comes easier to him,” said Arizona Head Coach Sean Miller

Ristic did have his best rebounding night of his career, grabbing seven rebounds, including four on the offensive end. He also had two blocks.

“The coaching staff and all the players help me everyday and I’m just glad to have those people around me,” Ristic said. “I think I improved my defensive game and my body. I wasn’t ready for college basketball but after four or five months, I’m getting better every day.”

Parker Jackson-Cartwright logged the most minutes of any Wildcat. The diminutive point guard has rare quickness and plays beyond his 5-9(ish) frame. Jackson-Cartwright was 3-4 from the field for seven points and had three assists to one turnover. Better yet, his defense is getting better and better.

“Parker has tremendous poise and command of the game and he’s a floor general for such a young player,” said Miller. “He’s played in some tough games, three away from McKale and off the bench.”

On at least eight other teams in the Pac-12 Craig Victor would be a rotation player, if not a starter. At Arizona he needs a blowout to log more than three minutes a game. From his 12 minutes you could see what the Wildcat coaches saw in him and what they want from him in the future. The 6-8 power forward was a perfect 2-2 from the field and added two blocks.

UA Eller College To Share Economic Outlook for 2015-2016

University of Arizona economists forecast what’s ahead for Tucson and nation at luncheon on December 12 at the Westin La Paloma Resort

TUCSON, Ariz. – Nov. 14, 2014 – The University of Arizona Eller College of Management will host its annual Economic Outlook Forecast Luncheon on Fri., Dec. 12 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Westin La Paloma Resort, 3800 East Sunrise, in Tucson. Presenters George W. Hammond, director and research professor at Eller’s Economic and Business Research Center, and Anthony Chan, Chase chief economist, will share their predictions for 2015 and 2016 regarding job growth, the housing sector, the stock market, interest rates and more.

Hammond said this is a must-attend event for C-level executives, business owners, financial managers, entrepreneurs, community leaders and anyone interested in Arizona’s economic health. “We stumbled a lot at the start of 2014, but the U.S. economy is back on track and growing again. However, the economy remains well below potential, which leaves a large segment of the population without adequate employment opportunities,” he said. “This is putting downward pressure on wage and income growth.  In contrast, the stock market posted strong results in 2013 and is still rising.”

While economic growth in Arizona and Tucson will be a main focus for Hammond, Chan will address the outlook for the global economy and financial markets.

“Moving forward, Arizona has an opportunity to shine, but our large metro areas, like Tucson and Phoenix, must work together to foster gains in educational attainment and workforce development, which will be key drivers of long-run growth in Arizona,” Hammond said.

Tickets are $80 per person if purchased before Nov. 25 or $85 per person thereafter. Reservations are requested by December 11. To reserve tickets, visit www.eller.arizona.edu/outlook. For more information, contact outlook@eller.arizona.edu or call (520) 621-0053.

What's Up UA? - Hiring Interns? Top 8 Tips for Companies

Companies relying on student interns must adhere to eight core best practices, incentives and goals, said Eileen McGarry, the executive director of Career Services at the UA.

McGarry shared her insights during the STEM Internship Business Forum held on campuslast week. As McGarry explained:

1. Company leaders must buy in to the internship program. Upper-level support is crucial to a program's success.

2. Supervisor-level personnel must be engaged in the internship program.

3. Assignments to interns must be authentic. Interns must work on projects in which they are able to help solve real-world problems.

4. Interns must receive regular feedback to ensure that they are learning and growing.

5. Companies should adopt a cohort model where possible. It is important that a culture of teamwork is emphasized and that interns feel part of a "culture of inclusion."

6. Interns should be paid for their work and be tasked with working on projects with real-world applications.

7. Accountability must be expected and emphasized.

8. Interns should be trained toward transferring their skills into full-time work in the field.

During the forum, UA President Ann Weaver Hart and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, along with representatives from the UA STEM Learning Center announced a new process that will make it easier for businesses to connect with STEM interns. With life scientists, engineers, social science technicians and mathematical scientists being among the STEM positions expected to have the highest demand in southern Arizona through 2020, as reported by UA STEM Learning Center researchers, the UA is increasing support for the STEM fields.

"At Career Services, we are at the front door for talent positions," said McGarry, who urged area businesses to connect with the UA and its partners to identify interns. "There is a whole lot going on on our campus. We will help you get started on this process."
