  • 'We Feel Like Home': Displaced Puerto Ricans Celebrate Traditional Christmas Parranda'We Feel Like Home': Displaced Puerto Ricans Celebrate Traditional Christmas Parranda

    Merely Torres-Garcia has been living in a hotel room in Hartford, Conn., with her husband and two kids after losing part of her house in Puerto Rico to Hurricane Maria. She said spending the Christmas season in the northeastern cold has been hard for her family. But on Saturday night, in the noisy atrium of Hartford City Hall, it felt a little bit like Christmas on the island. "My kids are happy. We feel like home in here right now," she said. Torres-Garcia was at a Christmas celebration called a parranda, where members of Hartford's Puerto Rican community greeted families displaced by the storm with a musical parade and a hot meal. A traditional Puerto Rican parranda features carolers traveling from one house to the next — sharing food, drinks and singing Christmas songs late into the night. Saturday's celebration happened inside to avoid the cold weather outdoors. But Torres-Garcia said the parranda made her proud to be Puerto Rican. "It's part of us, what we are," Torres-Garcia said

  • What's 'Casablanca' Without Nazis? After WWII, German Audiences Found OutWhat's 'Casablanca' Without Nazis? After WWII, German Audiences Found Out

    The classic World War II film Casablanca premiered 75 years ago. It starred Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, and it told a story of romance, intrigue and sacrifice. It was also passionately anti-Nazi — but not for the Germans who first got to see it. Casablanca was released in the U.S. in 1942, in the middle of World War II, but it wasn't released in Germany until 1952, after the war was over. For that German version, Warner Bros. deleted all scenes with Nazis in them, and almost all mention of the war. It became a completely different story — after all, Casablanca is a movie about Nazis and the war. "Everything had to be changed for this first dubbed version, even in very tiny details," says Nils Daniel Peiler, co-author of a book on film dubbing in Germany. The scene where customers at Rick's Café drown out German soldiers with the French anthem, "La Marseillaise"? Gone. Even characters were rewritten: Resistance fighter Victor Laszlo became a Norwegian atomic physicist, renamed

  • How To Survive Climate Change? Clues Are Buried In The ArcticHow To Survive Climate Change? Clues Are Buried In The Arctic

    We're on the Bering Land Bridge, where woolly mammoths roamed 20,000 years ago. Today, the land is covered in bright green grass and miniature shrubs. But there's something strange — bright white objects jutting out of the ground. As I walk a little closer with archaeologist Owen Mason , he tells me what they are. "Right there, that's a whale shoulder blade," Mason says, pointing to a bone about the size of a German Shepherd. And it's not just bones we see. Looking more closely at the ground, I realize artifacts are scattered all around us. "Right here, that's an ulu knife," he says, as he picks up a flat piece of stone. "It's a specialized knife for cutting animal flesh. It's about 300 years old." There's a piece of a sled runner, a fragment of ceramic, even remnants of ancient cooking oil. Buried underneath this tundra is a secret seaside neighborhood, preserved in frozen soil for a thousand years. Beneath the grass, says Mason, "there are at least 50 or 60 houses, maybe even 70. But

    We hear a lot about the problem of homelessness in downtown Reno, but we don’t always hear from the actual people who are living on the streets. Today, we join Derek Rivera to learn what a typical day is like for him. Rivera is 33, and he was homeless in a handful of other cities before landing in Reno. Newly Homeless Again Derek Rivera says he’s newly homeless again after dealing with family problems back on the East Coast with his older brother and mother, who both siblings depend on. He says he didn’t agree with his mother taking his formerly jailed brother in. He had been a caretaker, cooking for his mom. He’d been to Reno before and felt people didn’t bother him here, so he came back. He’s also had periods of homelessness in St. Louis, Missouri and Portland, Oregon, among other places, but he feels safer in the Biggest Little City.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the eighth episode in the widely popular intergalactic series, ascended to first place among American and Canadian movie-goers in its debut weekend. From Friday through Sunday, it brought in an estimated $220 million domestically, making it the No. 1 debut of the year, according to Disney. Its weekend haul also earns it the title of the second biggest domestic debut of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, its predecessor released in 2015. Internationally, the movie brought in an estimated $230 million, the fifth largest debut of all time. But those numbers don't include China, where the movie opens Jan. 5. China is the world's second biggest film market behind North America. The Last Jedi , written and directed by Rian Johnson, brings back familiar faces like Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker alongside new additions like Laura Dern's Vice Admiral Holdo.

    Updated at 5:24 p.m. ET Opponents of special counsel Robert Mueller ramped up their attacks over the weekend with a new claim that he improperly collected thousands of emails from President Trump's transition team and is using them as an illegitimate basis for much of his investigation. Mueller's office said his team has obtained all the evidence it's using in its investigation properly. And Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him, told Congress last week that he monitors Mueller's operation closely and has seen nothing improper. This weekend's dispute is the latest chapter in an ongoing campaign by Trump's Republican allies against Mueller and his team. Upon his return to the White House from an overnight trip to Camp David, the president weighed in on the controversy surrounding his transition team's emails, telling reporters, "It's not looking good." Trump added: "It's quite sad to see. My people were very upset about it. I can't imagine there's anything on [the

  • Education is the key to preventing CTEEducation is the key to preventing CTE

    It was a balmy Vegas evening at Ed Fountain Park in March of 2010. The street lights were glowing, chants were echoing across the fields and the start of my second youth football season was about to commence. We were playing this team that labeled themselves as the Raiders, and to many people’s dismay every teenager on the field was supposedly the “same age.” Lets just say it appeared as if our two teams were cut from a different size of cloth. But coaches always preached “It’s not about who’s bigger, but about who gets lower when contact erupts.” Once the regular proceedings finished up we were set to return the kick. I was the lone returner on our 20-yard line. The referee blew the whistle and seconds later the ball was in my grasp, as I hightailed it through the center of the field. Just as I had spun out of one tackle, I got tagged by a 200 plus pound teenager on the other team. I was sitting around 105 pounds at this point in my life. I felt a bit disoriented and confused but I ran into the offensive huddle anyhow to start the first drive. Our quarterback called the play in the huddle and we broke. Before the hit I knew every play in the playbook, where to line up, who to block in any defensive scheme and so forth. After we broke from the huddle I barely knew what position I was and had no idea if I was getting the ball or not. This was my first concussion as an athlete, but not my last. Tevin Coleman, Nathan Peterman, Todd Davis, Tom Savage and Kendall Lamm. What do all of these players in the National Football League have in common? They’re all sitting on the injury report for their respective teams due to concussion protocol. Concussions are labeled as a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function according to mayoclinic.org. Headache, temporary loss of consciousness, confusion, amnesia, dizziness, ringing in the ears and nausea are just a few of the many symptoms that come with concussions. While many of these symptoms are temporary, it is important to note that any type of physical activity should be halted. In Texan QB Tom Savage’s case, this did not happen. Savage took a vicious hit from Elvis Dumervil during the team’s game this past Sunday. Not only did he appear disoriented, but while still on the ground after the play, Savage’s hands appeared to be seizing. Savage was allowed to play the remainder of the game after sitting out for one series. The problem with allowing Savage in the game after he was clearly suffering from a concussed state, is the extremity of the side effects. Yes, anybody who plays a contact sport is taking a risk by using their bodies as vehicles of violence, but the reason concussion protocol is supposed to be in place is to evaluate the symptoms and issues when they happen to limit the magnitude of negative effects on the brain. If Savage got hit again during that game against the San Francisco 49ers there’s a good chance the consequences would have compounded. In some cases, athletes who have played with concussions end their entire playing careers because the risk of serious brain damage is too high. All the while during the series of occasions where athletes get these consistent concussions the risk of chronic traumatic encephalopathy rises. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE for short is a crippling brain disease commonly found in athletes and military veterans who have a history of repetitive brain trauma. CTE begins by creating a protein called Tau which then starts spreading through the brain, killing off brain cells. When CTE was first discovered in 1928 by Dr. Harrison Martland, some boxers described it as “punch drunk syndrome.” But CTE truly came to the forefront of the American society’s attention after Will Smith starred in the movie “Concussion.” In this true story, Smith took on the role of Dr. Bennet Omalu, who found a neurological breakdown in the brain of NFL player Mike Webster during an autopsy in 2005. The worst part about CTE is diagnosis can’t happen until after someone who might have it dies, as the only way to diagnosis it is through brain tissue analysis. Concussions are inevitable within football and other contact sports, but there are preventive measures that should be taken to keep athletes as healthy as possible for the majority of their careers. The biggest solution to the problem is ensuring all teams run through concussion protocol correctly, and don’t take the athlete’s word every time they say they’re okay after a big hit. In an NPR interview after the death of Junior Seau, Jim Trotter said “this is a guy that had over 1,400 tackles and not once was he ever diagnosed with a concussion.” Seau never told anyone about his concussions he would have during games, because he didn’t want his teammates to feel like they could take a game or a practice off. Later in the interview, they play a sound bite of Seau where he recognizes what he was doing to himself. “If I could feel some dizziness, I know that guy’s feeling double of what I feel,” Seau said. After studying Seau’s brain following his suicide in 2012, it was revealed that he suffered from CTE, which has now been found in a number of deceased NFL players. A lot of this could have been avoided had someone pulled Seau aside after a big hit and ran through concussion protocol with him. Granted, that would’ve been a great deal of concussion protocols, but these little precautions could’ve helped Seau remember his name toward the end of his life. While preventing concussions is easier said than done, it all comes down to educating the coaches, medical staff and most importantly players. Even though concussions are unavoidable, especially in a sport like football, the more knowledge people have on the subject, the more likely they are to come forth when symptoms arise after an intense hit. It also comes down to people not shaming others when concussions happen. Too often do athletes fall into relying on their machismo, before actually evaluating if they’re hurting or not because of the stigma society puts on men.

  • The diversity problem and what is being done to fix itThe diversity problem and what is being done to fix it

    by Madeline Purdue and Karolina Rivas When the country watched as white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, no one could predict the implications it would have immediately and subsequently on the University of Nevada, Reno, campus. The events that occurred over the course of this semester spotlighted and ignited conversations on an issue many people face at the university — diversity. Since the beginning of the semester, students and faculty have called for change from the administration on how they handle issues of diversity. For some, what the university has done to address the issues is enough, but others believe more can be done to support the diverse university population. In this report, The Nevada Sagebrush looks at the events spanning the semester, what the university has done in response — both immediately and over time — and what the university community wants to see done going forward. WHAT HAPPENED The fall semester kicked off with a protest — two, actually. The first happened on Friday, Aug. 11, at the University of Virginia. Members of white supremacist groups gathered to protest the removal of a Confederate statue from the campus. News and photos of the protest quickly went viral, which led to the identification of one of the participants as UNR student Peter Cvjetanovic — creating national attention for the university. In the days following Charlottesville, UNR President Marc Johnson gave a news conference and sent out an email announcing that Cvjetanovic could not be expelled from the university or fired from his on-campus job — from which he would later resign. Members of the community organized a counter-protest put on by the Reno-Sparks chapter of Black Lives Matter on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 1,000 people gathered and marched downtown against the hateful acts seen in Charlottesville. The ASUN Senate also held a special meeting for university members to speak about their thoughts and feelings on the Charlottesville protest and the university’s decision to keep Cvjetanovic on campus. They responded with creating the “I am the Real Nevada” T-shirt campaign. They ordered 2,000 shirts to hand out to students during the festivities that come with the beginning of the semester. Three days after the Black Lives Matter march, the former Assistant to the Director of the Latino Research Center, Iris West, resigned from the university with a four-page letter detailing issues of diversity at UNR. Protesters march to Downtown Reno on Sunday, Aug. 27, at a Black Lives Matter protest that began at UNR. The protest remained peaceful in its entirety. Karolina Rivas/ Nevada Sagebrush The letter accused President Marc Johnson of making “tone-deaf” decisions and that the administration has marginalized voices of color in favor of white women. In late September, UNR graduate student Kevin McReynolds and friends were pulled over in a routine traffic stop by the University Police Services. While in conversation, an officer joked that he would shoot McReynolds “if things go sideways.” The entire incident was caught on body camera footage. UNRPD released the video of the traffic stop and put the offending officer on administrative leave while the Title IX office investigated the situation. The investigation concluded on Thursday, Nov. 9, but the results remained confidential. However, McReynolds said he has seen the officer in question on campus since then. Not long after the McReynolds incident, graffiti of swastikas was found in the Church Fine Arts building’s graffiti stairway. The stairway is dedicated to graffiti artwork, however the swastikas found on the morning of Friday, Oct. 13, were considered vandalism. Cameras face the entrance to the stairwell, but the quality of the footage in addition to not knowing the exact time the stairway was tagged made it nearly impossible to find the perpetrator or perpetrators. It is likely that they will not be caught unless they come forward themselves. Members of the community gathered the following Sunday to paint over the swastikas in the stairwell. Two weeks later, a photo of university police officer Antonio Gutierrez, dressed as a caricature of Colin Kaepernick, circulated on social media. The costume included a red shirt resembling a 49ers jersey, painted beard, an afro wig, fake nose and a sign that reads, “Will stand for food.” Some people were outraged while others showed support for the officer. Moe Alazawi, manager of Wolf Fastop gas station on North Virginia Street, posted a message on one side of the gas station’s marquee stating “Officer Gutierrez standing for food is better than taking a knee.” On the other side of the sign, a photo of Calvin from the Calvin and Hobbes comic was seen urinating on the name “Kaepernick”. About a week later, a hole was shot into the sign. The university has been watched locally and nationally for the events that have occurred over the semester, and many students are voicing their concerns that the administration is not doing enough. Emails from President Johnson were sent to the university community addressing most of these issues as they happened, but this action has become too routine and “bureaucratic” for some. However, the administration has assured the community they are listening and are taking action. “I think this has been a rough fall for the campus,” said UNR’s Chief Diversity Officer Patricia Richard. “We have been listening to students and faculty who have said that we need to take action. Yes, we recognize the difficulties the campus has.” THE AFTERMATH The spotlight has yet to waver from the university administration about what they are going to do about the diversity issues. In President Johnson’s State of the University on Tuesday, Sept. 26, he announced that the university is actively seeking to hire more diverse faculty and is creating more diversity initiatives. Richard confirmed the university is trying to create a more diverse university population. “We are working to diversify our faculty,” Richard said. “We have launched an implicit bias training program and we will have trained almost 800 members of the search committees in implicit bias. In that way, we are listening to the students and our faculty.” Richard has other plans going forward as well. She said that she has put together a diversity council to help with a strategic plan on how exactly to move forward with diversity initiatives, and has met with members of different organizations that represent diverse groups. “I think that we will be working on a strategic plan on a diversity plan for the campus,” Richard said. “We have not had that in the past and to coordinate all the efforts and be transparent about it. We will be working on that in spring semester, so we’re really excited about it.” University Police Services has also changed the way they do things after incidents involving university officers occurred twice this semester. According to Police Chief Adam Garcia, the University Police Services has set high standards of professional conduct that personnel will be required to follow. “I am committed to implement changes to prevent these types of incidents in the future, including supervisor leadership training to include zero tolerance of abusive language, department-wide cultural competency training, a change in body cam video review policy, and aggressive diversity recruitment […],” Garcia said. A UNR police officer dresses as UNR alumni Colin Kaepernick. His costume received national attention. ASUN has also been trying to help solve these issues by creating opportunities for the community to talk about these situations. On Tuesday, Nov. 14, ASUN and the UNRPD hosted a Conversation with the Police at the Blind Onion in the Joe Crowley Student Union. Members of the community were invited to directly ask Chief Garcia and the members of the police force questions related to campus safety and the events of the semester. The ASUN Senate also hosted a special meeting — similar to the one they held after the Charlottesville protests — on Wednesday, Dec. 6. Students talked about the things they wanted to see done by the university — including more discussions. McReynolds spoke at the meeting and called for the administration to prioritize safety for all students. “I think as a campus we have a duty to the people on this campus to make safety a priority for all people, whether it’s minorities or anyone else.” Full coverage of the special meeting can be found in the Senate Recap article on page A2 and online. WHY THIS IS HAPPENING The events of this semester have led to many questions, but one seems to come up more than others — why does this keep happening? Blane Harding, the former director for The Center, Every Student, Every Story, said the issues UNR faces also happen on other campuses. “Most universities around the country have a diversity issue,” Harding said. “Some universities are taking steps to really address it, some universities are thinking of taking steps, but they really don’t know what to do and some universities aren’t doing anything.” Harding also believes UNR’s campus is reflective of a national attitude toward diversity. “I think the reason it’s just gotten worse is that it’s just you know reflective of what’s happening across the country,” Harding said. “I think the campus is just a reflection of what’s happening in society.” While some people welcome the dialogues that have been created because of these events, Harding has different feelings on them. “They think that dialogue is actually going to lead to some conclusions,” Harding said. “But unless you’re addressing the institutional systemic problems that exist on campus, then the dialogues don’t mean anything.” These systemic issues include low funding for diverse organizations on campus — such as the LRC and The Center. It also includes a campus culture that doesn’t prioritize diversity and people in charge with little to no experience on how to address diversity issues when they arise. “It’s a shame that from all the Latinos that have passed and people of color that have been at the university in positions of leadership, they all end up finding a better place than UNR,” West said. “I think that says tons about the environment in which they have to work.” McReynolds believes the problem is the culture the campus has toward diversity, and the lack of consequences for the perpetrators of hateful acts. “The culture is if you do something discrimination wise, nothing happens,” McReynolds said. “And I think that that’s the thing — people realize they won’t get in trouble if they say something to somebody, and they know it’s wrong.” Kevin McReynolds and friends react as an officer jokingly threatens to shoot McReynolds. He says a video of his incident is what caused the university to face diversity issues on campus. McReynolds said these situations have been happening on campus for a while, but the university didn’t acknowledge it until it was in the open. “It took this campus to see a video of what happened to me in order to take the necessary steps to try and address the situation,” he said. “They were finally forced to talk about something that they weren’t comfortable talking about.” Another systemic issue these people see is the fact that Richard holds the position as Chief Diversity Officer despite not having a background in diversity. “The fact that there’s a person that is the Chief of Diversity with no experience, no knowledge, no history of doing anything regarding diversity, and yet is lauded by the president as the most adequate person for that job — and she’s doing two other jobs on top of that — shows that there’s no real interest in doing something serious,” West said. Richard holds three positions at the university — Chief of Staff, Assistant Vice President, and Chief Diversity Officer. However, Richard does not see her job as three. “They’re really all one position,” Richard said. “I know they’re three different titles. The Chief of Staff is a position that the president uses me to handle special projects and right now diversity is at the forefront of the university so that is my chief of staff position. Chief Diversity Officer is the top priority. One of the reasons the president wanted me to take the Chief Diversity Officer is because we meet so frequently and this way it stays at a top level while we are working across the campus. It takes everybody across the campus to be engaged.” McReynolds says that her multiple roles are reflective of the university’s commitment to diversity. “What this campus shows is that minorities are worth one-third of their time,” McReynolds said at the special Senate meeting. “[Richard] has three jobs. I’m not saying she needs to be fired, I’m just saying that she needs to pick one … You signal to all the students that are minorities that we don’t matter to you, we’re worth one-third of your time.” McReynolds called for a nationwide search to find someone with more experience — saying that if the university can look nationally to recruit athletes, it can put the same amount of effort into finding a Chief Diversity Officer. “If she’s the best we come up with, she’s the best we come up with,” he said. “But I think there needs to be a real effort.” WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE There are different things the university community has called for in order to address these situations. One thing that can be agreed on is that the response needs to be improved. “As it gets worse, that’s really the time that the institution needs to step up,” Harding said. “It’s really the time we need to actually take a look at how we do things and how we address things and what systems we have in place to address these concerns and issues that we know basically what they are.” McReynolds agrees that things need to improve on campus. “Every time that one of these incidents happen, the way the school handles it, it erodes that trust that is there,” McReynolds said. “They don’t handle the situation right.” He suggests that the university implements a reporting system similar to the one in place for sexual assault. “If a sexual assault is reported on this campus, there is a clear pathway to reporting it and how it gets handled — but with diversity, it’s not like that at all,” McReynolds said. “I think that’s a problem, and I think there’s a way to handle it moving forward.” McReynolds is helping to create more diversity on campus. He is working to create a foundation that will give a scholarship to a student of color to work at University Police Services while pursuing a degree in criminal justice. Paolo Zialcita/Nevada SagebrushA swastika painted over graffiti in the Church of Fine Arts Building on Friday, Oct. 13. Multiple were found painted in the staircase. “I think that the UNRPD needs to add African Americans and more minorities and more training,” he said. “I think as this campus looks forward and we move past these things that have happened so far this semester, we have a duty to students. Right now, UNR is not a safe campus.” McReynolds would also like to see a Chief Diversity Officer in every department so that all students have a person to go to. Harding did not see enough change university-wide in his former position as The Center director and decided to change his role at the university. “I don’t really have a lot of faith in terms of those that are in charge of diversity, so I don’t really want to be involved on a campus-wide basis anymore,” he said. “I took myself off the five diversity committees I was on because we sat around tables and talked. But I never really saw anything to come out of those meetings.” Instead, he is focusing on helping the College of Science — where he now teaches African American history — become more diverse. He is helping create a diverse course the College of Science can teach and is working on a program that helps first-generation students succeed. At the special Senate meeting, students called for the university to take more action. One action they did not want to see anymore is the emails from President Johnson addressing these situations. Harding said other students have come to him with similar feelings. “Quite frankly they’re tired of it. They want something to actually happen. They want something to be put in place. They want the university to put their dollars where they know that the issues and concerns are.” MOVING FORWARD Going into the next semester, students are going to be looking for change from the university administration and fewer incidents involving diversity. The university students and organizations have held numerous events with opportunities for the university community to speak their mind and share their ideas. A gas station marquee displays an anti-Kaepernick message in support of an UNRPD officer who dressed as the UNR alumni for Halloween. The marquee was later shot. “My hope is that they’re listening and they’re willing to have these conversations and not just willing to have the conversations but create change from it,” McReynolds said. Richard mentioned that she — along with other university members — are putting together a strategic plan next semester in hopes of moving on from these events and into a more diverse campus. Students will be looking for action. “I think it’s time for enough sorrys,” McReynolds said. “We’re past the point of sorry.” Coverage around these events and more can be found online at nevadasagebrush.com.

  • Christmas events around RenoChristmas events around Reno

    ‘Tis the season for standing at the back of church, feigning joy when opening presents, scraping ice off your windshield, buying your Secret Santa candy at the last second, pretending to like eggnog, crying because you learned you have to retake Journalism 108, using the excuse of “it’s the holidays” to gorge on cookie dough, getting irritated by your family and paying for Mariah Carey’s mortgage. It all can be a little much. In order to stave off seasonal affective disorder, I have curated some fun holiday events around Reno. The Nutcracker The Reno Dance Company will perform the “The Nutcracker” in the Celebrity Showroom at the Nugget of Sparks Dec. 16, 17 and 22-24. Warning: spectators in the front row should bring protective eye wear because of all of the broken nutshells which fly from the stage. Please, no one tell my mom about this event or she will make me go with her. Then again, she will probably buy me Shirley Temples… Winterfest Taking place at the Greater Nevada Field, this bash goes on for the entirety of December. Festivities include Holiday Express Train, Santa’s Village, fresh cut Christmas trees, and the ice skating rink. Sure, ice skating sounds like a good first date idea, until you fall and sprain your wrist and spend the rest of the night crying and your date leaves because she suddenly remembers she has to pick her cousin up from the airport…or whatever… Polar Express on the V&T Railroad This train ride on the Virginia and Truckee Railroad runs until the 30th of December. Drink hot cocoa and hang with Santa. Buy your tickets early because it sells out every year. You can buy VIP tickets which includes additional entertainment, extra time with Santa, a “special holiday treat” and a commemorative mug. Also, I think you are allowed to spit on people in coach. So come out and relive that creepy animated movie where Tom Hanks plays 17 different characters. The website claims it is a round trip to the North Pole, which, by my calculations would take approximately 47 hours. So, plan accordingly. How the Grinch Stole Christmas On Sunday, Dec. 17, at the Spanish Springs Library, the In-Tunes Tales will present their sing-along version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” teaches children the valuable lesson that if you are shunned from society for being different, you should rid townspeople of their material goods in an act of Marxist defiance. Jazz for the Holidays – A Gospel Christmas The Reno Jazz Orchestra, accompanied by Pat Esters’ Gospel Choir and the Reno Youth Jazz Orchestra, will perform at Cargo Concert Hall in Whitney Peak on Dec. 16 and 17. Jazz isn’t dead, it just has to perform jingle bells once a year. Home 4 the Holidays The Nevada Humane Society is looking for future pet owners to adopt 1,200 dogs and cats this Christmas season. They are waiving fees for cats over 5. Think about it: You can be just like Santa Clause (more like Santa Claws, [get it?]). The Buttcracker The Brüka Theatre is performing this parody and time travel adventure through Reno Dec. 13-16 and 20-23 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 10 and 17 at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $24. The show is ages 12 and up. 11-year-olds are just too immature. 12-year-olds, however? Very mature. This is the eighth year they have performed it. As in, they have performed it seven previous times and people approved. Art is dead.

  • Shrugging our shoulders at the GOP tax billShrugging our shoulders at the GOP tax bill

    Photo via Gage Skidmore/Wikimedia CommonsSenate majority leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., speaks during the CPAC conference in 2011. McConnell spearheaded the Republican tax cut effort in the senate, an effort that would eventually pass with only one GOP defector. Right now, the Trump tax plan is being hammered and bent by conference. It’s the way all bills are smoothed between the inevitably different versions produced by each the House and the Senate, and by and large, it’s a remarkably normal process. Though, perhaps not this time. The tax plan, especially in its senate version, was passed under cover of darkness, was read by no one (relatively speaking), and had amendments scribbled by hand in the margins. It was major legislation passed as quickly as humanly possible, at speeds that would, under normal circumstances, give any legislator whiplash. It was, by all accounts, a bit of a mess. But Republicans voted for it anyway, because surely these irregularities would get ironed out in conference. After all, conference is a time for deal making and pork barrels (which, politicians agree, is the best kind of barrel), and any of those nitty gritty mistakes — like the addition of $1 trillion to the deficit during a time of economic growth — can get tweaked into “features” and “benefits” and “talking points” later on. But, if by divine intervention, the conference process has at least allowed Congress — and therefore the nation — a moment to breathe, and to digest: what’s even in this bill? For one thing, we know it benefits corporations and the wealthy. Now, we won’t be stodgy caricatures of liberals here and say the corporate tax code shouldn’t be adjusted, because it probably should. However, it doesn’t mean the timing of this bill isn’t enormously suspect (it is) or that the content of the bill somehow makes more sense because of it (it doesn’t). In fact, what we’re left with is something that, sure, will lower taxes for most people. But why? Only because the Republicans need something — anything — to hang their hats on next November. And if they can play Santa Claus while they’re at it, handing out tax cuts like poorly wrapped christmas gifts, then that’s even better. And that’s to say nothing of the president’s role in all this. The Trump Administration is nothing if not consistently disappointing. This week, the Treasury Department released their analysis of the tax plan. It was a one page report that claimed Trump’s whole economic plan would create $1.8 trillion in new tax revenue. This single page analysis of a nearly 500 page tax plan comes months after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin promised a detailed analysis of the tax plan and a week after versions of the plan passed the House and Senate. He has also claimed that 100 Treasury employees were working on the analysis. By our calculations, that’s probably one analyst for every four words of detailed analysis. So here we are. With 500 hundred pages of something that is almost surely a tax cut. But what else it might be? We suppose we’ll have to wait and see what kind of frankenstein’s monster emerges from conference. At least it will probably be wearing a tuxedo and singing “puttin on the ritz,” so there’s that.

  • Three takeaways from Wolf Pack’s early non-conference gamesThree takeaways from Wolf Pack’s early non-conference games

    Following tough back-to-back road games, the Nevada Basketball team has over a week off to prepare for its last stretch of non conference games before heading into Mountain West play. It is safe to say that the meat of its out-of-conference schedule is done. There has been much ado made about the need for this basketball team to bulk up its schedule in the preseason to help boost its resume come Selection Sunday. Thus, with the conclusion of its marquee games against Texas Tech and TCU, let’s take a look at what we’ve learned about this team thus far as it heads into Mountain West Conference play. Twin Identity Ever since head coach Eric Musselman has stepped foot on campus, he has preached that he wanted his teams to play a fast-paced style of basketball. Prior to the beginning of the season, he believed that he had the personnel necessary to run the majority of his offensive and defensive schemes. With the departure of three starters from the NCAA Tournament qualifying team in 2016 in Cameron Oliver, D.J. Fenner, and Marcus Marshall, there were some question marks as to who would step up to fill those shoes. Especially on the offensive end, that trio made up a majority of its scoring attack. Cue Caleb and Cody Martin. The Martin Twins were touted to be the prototypical “position-less” player that Musselman has tried to model his team after. Not to mention that coming out of high school they were both highly ranked consensus four-star recruits, they have been key to giving the Wolf Pack its identity this season. Caleb Martin, who started off the season with a turf toe injury, has taken on the primary ballhandler/first option scorer for this team that Marshall had last year. He leads the team in scoring at 19.7 points per game. Martin has made a living from beyond the arc, where 52.7 percent of his shots have come from. Through eight games, he has converted at a 49.2 percent clip. It will be interesting to see whether he can sustain this level of shooting throughout the season. In Nevada’s loss against Texas Tech, it was evident that he had the same green light that Marshall had last year at points during the season. Musselman loves to get his players into isolation situations where they can exploit the defense. It is clear that he trusts Martin to the point where he took over 30 percent of the team’s shots that game. Cody Martin has become the Wolf Pack’s designated defensive stopper. While he is the third leading scorer on this team, averaging 16.2 points per game, his greatest contributions have been on the defensive end, guarding the opposing team’s best player. Without the presence of a real shot blocker unlike in years past where Cameron Oliver anchored the paint, Martin has helped stabilize the defense. Instead of traditional position-type players, the Wolf Pack essentially has the length and speed to switch every ball screen. In most cases, this is a strength because Martin has thrived in both defending perimeter and post players. Through nine games, the Martin twins have been a pleasant surprise to Wolf Pack fans as the duo has played a large part in molding the identity of this iteration of Nevada Basketball. Caroline Heading into the season, Jordan Caroline was the media’s pick for Mountain West Conference Player of the Year. He has played well in the non conference portion of the season. He trails Caleb Martin in points per game as he is averaging 17.4 a contest. Despite the major contributions that the Martin twins have brought to the team, Caroline is still the heartbeat of this team. His effort on the boards and overall hustle cannot be overstated. When Caroline plays well, the team feeds off his energy. In last year’s NCAA Tournament game against Iowa State, Caroline was the one who sparked the near-comeback against the Cyclones. On the biggest stage, he displayed that nobody can match his energy level. His 16 points and 10 free throw attempts helped keep the Wolf Pack afloat when the Cyclones seemed to try and break the game open. In the game against Rhode Island, Caroline delivered one of the best performances in the season as he bulldozed his way to 28 points. More importantly, he affected the game most with his ability to shift the momentum at points where the Rams seemed to take control of the game. His game-high 17 free throw attempts were what won that high-profile matchup. Caroline may still be adjusting to being the de facto small-ball “big man” with the departure of Cameron Oliver. However, he has to be able to anchor the post if Nevada is to match up against taller teams. In Nevada’s sole loss against Texas Tech, Caroline only attempted nine shots and got to the line once. For Nevada to win its matchups against higher caliber opponents, it needs to rely on the play of its most important player. It may be nitpicking to what is otherwise a solid start to the season but Caroline should never shy away from asserting his role in key games. Depth One of the main storylines in the early portion of the season is the depth that this Wolf Pack team has. Kendall Stephens, Josh Hall, and Lindsey Drew are three contributors that have helped add to the scoring punch of the Martin Twins and Caroline. Stephens is averaging a hair under 10 points per game. Hall and Drew contribute 6.8 ppg and 5.9 ppg respectively. When those three are locked in offensively, Nevada becomes one of the most dynamic teams in the nation. Nevada is a very unselfish team on offense. Musselman stresses the need to reach at least 200 passes every game. However, beyond this trio, in its high-profile games, Musselman has stuck to his short rotation. Friday night’s matchup against TCU showed Musselman’s preference for the short rotation. In games where the Wolf Pack will be playing high quality opponents, this trio needs to make their contributions impactful. Drew had a difficult time stopping the ball against TCU. He is a capable defender and prior to Cody Martin, was the one who was usually tasked to defend opposing teams’ best players. Part of this may be due to the fatigue from the grueling schedule thus far. While Drew has always been a pass-first point guard during his time, he needs to be able to keep the defenses honest with his shooting and drives to the rim. At one point in the second half against TCU, Drew drove on the baseline and had a clear path to a reverse layup. However, he kicked it out to a teammate for a long-range shot. Drew has the skills to score. He just needs to continue to play aggressively on offense so that when teams respect his scoring, he can open up some lanes for others. While the Wolf Pack lost both marquee games in their nonconference schedule, they have still shown that they are one of the top teams in the nation. While it would have been helpful to win one of these games to help its resume come Selection Sunday, Nevada still has a solid team that has shown that it can compete with high caliber teams. As the team gets a week off for its final exams before its game against Radford, they should be rested before it jumps into conference play.   Opinions expressed in The Nevada Sagebrush are solely those of the author and do not necessarily express the views of the Sagebrush or its staff.

  • Kubrick: criticizing the greedy, rich and powerful through artKubrick: criticizing the greedy, rich and powerful through art

    Bertolt Brecht once wrote, “Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” I don’t know who Bertolt is but I like his style, and I think his quote (which I googled) fits what I’m about to mansplain to you quite well. In these troubling times, and no I don’t mean finals, I mean the notifications I get on my phone every day of the next guy resigning amid sexual assault allegations. In these troubling times, one can look to art to remind us that the bad guys have been exposed before, and they will continue to be exposed. Art is a useful tool in this endeavor. I think that’s how Stanley Kubrick meant to use his art, as a hammer to smash the penises right off the naked men forcefully masturbating in front of women. Stanley Kubrick was born to a Jewish family in New York City in 1928. He was not a good student in high school and didn’t make the grades to get into college. He worked as a photographer for Look magazine after graduating. He read extensively at the library, watched movies at the art house movie theater and he became an expert at chess by playing grumpy old men in the park. He made his first movies by saving up money and asking for loans from family and friends. Throughout his filmmaking career, he made roughly a dozen feature-length films, and he is considered one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. I don’t know how or why but at some point Kubrick decided that he was going to tell stories that criticized the rich and the powerful and the greedy and that empowered the less powerful. Many self-proclaimed cinephiles would be burned at the stake by even more condescending self-proclaimed cinephiles for claiming to know what Kubrick’s movies are about. Usually I would join in because it’s against my religion to try to guess what the hidden meaning behind the Gold Room in “The Shining” might be; however, I think I can say with confidence that Kubrick was a man who wanted to serve up some justice to the powerful men who deserved it. Take, for example, his 18th century period drama from 1975 Barry Lyndon. It is about a young Irish man, Redmond Barry, born into poverty but set on not staying there for long. Barry is scorned by his cousin, who he has become infatuated with. She would rather marry an older, richer military man. Barry vows to never be taken advantage of again. He travels abroad, climbing the social ladder through deceit and opportunism. He finally sits in the position of power he had hoped for, but by the end, he is thwarted by those he harmed along the way. He ends up sad and alone (and crippled). Then there is “A Clockwork Orange,”about a young man aroused so deeply by the many pleasures western society provides for a person of his class and stature he must be made into a science experiment for the people in power most responsible for providing those pleasures. “2001: A Space Odyssey” is about a future man-made weapon (the computer) so powerful it outsmarts its own makers. Even “Eyes Wide Shut,” as crazy as the movie might be, is simply about a man who wants the status and lifestyle of the richest of the rich, but once he gains access he finds it’s really all about treating women like sex slaves and using power to threaten them. Was “Eyes Wide Shut” about Harvey Weinstein’s gang of manipulative, deceiving, disgusting circus clowns? Maybe. And, of course, we can’t forget “Lolita,” an excruciatingly relevant movie about a bunch of full-grown perverts drooling over a 12-year-old girl. Guess how it ends. The perverts die sad and alone. I think Kubrick was drawn to these types of stories of powerful men meeting swift justice. Many of his films were adapted from existing books. “Lolita” was written by Vladimir Nabokov, “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess and “The Shining” by Stephen King. Kubrick almost made a movie about Napoleon Bonaparte. It never came to fruition, but I can imagine it would’ve been about a greedy, power-hungry man who dies sad and alone. Kubrick took those already powerful stories and put them on the screen so that he could persuade the masses through beautiful images and damn good suspense. I could go on and on, but the moral of all his stories seems to be that the power-hungry, perverted men die sad and alone. I can’t vouch for the man’s character because I didn’t know him. I’ve heard he could be a real jerk on set. And, I don’t want to pretend to know what Kubrick really thought. He could have been one of the many perverts from his generation (God, I would be devastated), but I think his work speaks for itself. And it is as relevant today as it has ever been. We should continue to watch these movies. We should show them to our children when they are old enough. And we should use them as an example of exactly how not to act when you find yourself in a position of power. Nobody wants a Jack Torrence in the world, but they seem to be popping up more and more all the time.

  • Top albums of the yearTop albums of the year

    RYAN SUPPE: INDIE/ROCK   5.) Hot Thoughts by Spoon “Get the stars out your eyes/Come and sit next to me/Under Tennessee skies/Down on South Front Street” – Can I Sit Next to You I have yet to hear a bad song from Spoon. Not even a “meh, it’s alright” sort of reaction. It’s more like “that’s not my favorite song, but it rocks and I’ll listen to it any day of my goddamn life and be into it.” All the way through it’s another solid record from the indie rockers from Texas, singing about being indie rockers from Texas. They can do no wrong.       4.) Hang by Foxygen “Here I am/In this Hollywood bar/Press my face against the glass/Can’t you see I’m making reservations?/Ah, for her birthday/Hey, Mrs. Adams/what you doing now with your gun in your mouth?” – Mrs. Adams This album sounds like it could be the soundtrack to a dark yet hopeful Pixar movie set in Los Angeles about a “lady of the night” turning his/her life around after meeting a welcoming group of singing and dancing vagabonds. I played the song “Mrs. Adams” for my dad once and he asked, “Is this Billy Joel?” No, it’s Foxygen, and they rock even harder than Billy Joel.       3.) The OOZ by King Krule “I wish I was equal, if only that simple/I wish I was people” – The Locomotive When was the last time  something that sounds so gross felt so good? Singer-songwriter wunderkind extraordinaire had such high expectations  for this album, and he  blew them all out of the water. The OOZ has some of the darkest, densest, jazziest most deranged music  you will ever hear. Check out this album is you want to feel lonely, cold and insane.         2.) american dream by LCD Soundsystem “Everybody’s singing the same song/It goes ‘tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight’/I never realized these artists thought so much about dying” – tonite A feast for thine ears. “American Dream” is a pop record from a disco/house music group, but that doesn’t mean you can’t blow the speakers in your car getting krunk to it like I did. A few of the songs sound a lot like Talking Heads which I’m sure frontman James Murphy would gladly admit. He bares his soul on this album. He talks about getting old, complains about current pop music, he sends a sonic middle finger to his critics and he sings a lot about drugs.       1.) Crack-Up by Fleet Foxes “When the world insists/That the false is so/With a philippic as Cicero/‘The tighter the fist/The looser the sand’” – Crack-up Fleet Foxes is a group of the most talented musicians in rock music today. “Crack-Up” is stronger and more refined than their previous albums. It hits you and apologizes sweetly, then hits you again even harder. They take “tension and release” to a whole new level on “I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar” and “Third of may / ōdaigahara.” They got snubbed and disrespected at the upcoming Grammys and replaced by the artist formerly known as J. Tillman. Yuck.       JOEY THYNE: HIP-HOP/POP 5.) Run the Jewels 3 by Run the Jewels “If I die today and it’s hell I should pay/Tell the Lord Mikey said, F— it was fun.” – Legend Has It Yes, I know this technically came out last year, but it was after I published my best-of for 2016, and I’m A&E editor, so just deal with it. One silver lining in having an ignorant, xenophobic megalomaniac as leader of the free world is that it inspires great art. The mixture of Killer Mike’s political fury and El-P’s Big-Brother paranoia is perfect for the Trump era. Killer Mike is one of the most underrated lyricists of his generation and El-P is one of the most underrated producers of his generation, so Run the Jewels is a hip-hop nerd’s match made in heaven. In a world full of too-cool-to-care hipsters, Run the Jewels’ fearlessness to just go for it is so refreshing. It’s no surprise that Zack De La Rocha from Rage Against the Machine works with them so often; Run the Jewels brings the energy of the craziest metal band you can think of.   4.) Flower Boy by Tyler the Creator “You exist behind my eyelids, my eyelids/I don’t wanna wake up” – See You Again On “Flower Boy,” Tyler undermined the toxic masculinity so detrimental to hip-hop, perpetuated by so many (including himself). This album unfolds like a summer afternoon daydream. It’s that warm feeling in the pit of your stomach when you’re crushing on someone but you don’t want to tell the person because your imagination is so much more lovely than reality could ever be. Tyler really, pardon the pun, flourished on “Flower Boy.” The album has everything: whimsical pop tunes like “See You Again” and absolute slappers like “Who Dat Boy.” He dropped the abrasive act while keeping his unique idiosyncrasies to release one of the most vulnerable, and best, albums of the year.   3.) Melodrama by Lorde “I know that it’s exciting/Running through the night, but/Every perfect summer’s/Eating me alive until you’re gone.” – Liability Is there any other medium that relies on pandering to trends more than pop music? Instead of taking cues from mainstream radio, Lorde consumed real-life experience and a whole lot of Kate Bush in order to make one of the most inspired albums of the year. “Melodrama” is a concept album revolving around one house party. It’s celebration of youth: every petty, gross, devastating and exquisite detail. Big singles like “Green Light” and “Homemade Dynamite” get the most attention, but the album really thrives on understated tunes like “The Louvre” and “Supercut,” as well as soul-bearing ballads like “Liability,” “Hard Feelings” and “Writer in the Dark.”   2.) CTRL by SZA “Why is it so hard to accept the party is over?” – Drew Barrymore SZA is a hopeless romantic in a world of where Tinder hookups get ghosted daily. She sings with so much emotion it’s difficult to not get swept up. This album is not just for fans of R&B; she combines elements of pop, rock, indie and psychedelia. It’s also an album for anyone who has ever felt lonely or lost or used or unappreciated or worthless. She recruits A-list features from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott and Isaiah Rashad, but they couldn’t matter less. Her narrative and point of view are so direct and so heart wrenching they can’t be ignored. I could find a lot of fancy words to describe the technical aspects of the album, but it wouldn’t do it justice. There is something so effortlessly enchanting about it. I just like it a lot.   1.) DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar “It was always me vs. the world/Until I realized it was me vs. me” – DUCKWORTH. After “To Pimp a Butterfly” came out in 2015, many critics and fans wrote off Lamar as a “conscious rapper.” However, in 2017 Kendrick, now Kungfu Kenny, came back to prove he can make current-sounding music and do it better than anyone else. With the low-fi cover, the brief song titles, the raw mixtape aesthetic, this is his most personal album to date. Just because there are trap beats and an appearance by Rihanna doesn’t mean the music is any less challenging. No, the lyrics are dense with themes of religion, fame and so much more. Flurries of theories have stormed the web. Lamar himself released a special collector’s with the tracklist backwards. Is he trying to tell us something? Is he messing with us? Is he just trying to get paid? Regardless, it all contributes to the mythology of King Kendrick. With DAMN., I dare say, Kendrick has proved himself as the greatest rapper of all time.

  • Reno Fire Department help battle fires in Southern CaliforniaReno Fire Department help battle fires in Southern California

    Firefighters in Southern California are facing six wildfires that have wreaked havoc in the region, destroying hundreds of buildings and forcing thousands of residents to evacuate. The Thomas Fire is the fifth-largest fire in California’s modern history and began on Monday, Dec. 4 in Ventura County. The blaze has covered more than 230,000 acres and is 15 percent contained as of Monday. According to CNN, the Thomas Fire claimed one life when 70-year-old Santa Paula died in what officials believe to be a car crash while Paula was trying to flee the fire. The Creek, Lilac, Rye, and Skirball fires are located in LA County and are more than 80 percent contained. Lastly, the Liberty fire in Riverside County and has been fully contained but officials are keeping an eye due to possible re-ignition due to tropical-storm force Santa Ana winds. “The winds play a huge part in fires,” Steve Leighton, Operations Division Chief for Reno Fire Dept. said. “The fires that we’ve had here, the Colin fire, the Washoe fire, any large fire we’ve had here. The winds had a big effect on the fire. They need the winds to die down, they need to get enough firefighters there to control and get a perimeter around the fire.” According to the RGJ, around 126 security inmates from prison camps in Nevada that pose a low-security risk are being deployed to assist in the Thomas Fire in Ventura County. Nevada Department of Corrections Director James Dzurenda told the RGJ that those being sent are trained and prepared to fight the fires. To assist in the efforts, the Reno Fire Department has deployed two fire engines as a part of a mutual aid system Nevada has with California. “When we have fires they send us apparatus and equipment and when they have large fires they ask that we send them apparatus and equipment,” Leighton said. “On large emergencies like that, they don’t have enough firefighters to basically handle the emergencies that are going on or put out the fires. The fires are too big and they’re burning too fast and they’re too large for any single city or fire district to handle those emergencies on their own.” The fires are not predicted to end any time soon and Governor Jerry Brown has told Southern Californians that the wildfires are a new normal. “This is kind of the new normal,” Brown said. “With climate change, some scientists are saying that Southern California is literally burning up,” he said. “So we have to have the resources to combat the fires and we also have to invest in managing the vegetation and forests … in a place that’s getting hotter.” Health officials are strongly encouraging people to avoid unnecessary outdoor exposure and limit all physical activity due to the unhealthy air quality that is spreading across the San Fernando Valley and areas in Los Angeles County.

  • UNR looks to move historic homes south of campusUNR looks to move historic homes south of campus

    Andrea Wilkinson/Nevada SagebrushA house in Reno’s Gateway District as it stands on Monday, Dec. 11. Houses such as this one are being sold by the university and relocated to in order to make space for UNR to expand. The University of Nevada, Reno, is planning on selling 12 houses that border the south end of campus after the Nevada System of Higher Education gave the university permission to on Friday, Dec. 1. The plan for the sale or transfer of these houses will be available after the new year. The houses are on Lake Street and N. Center Street between Interstate 80 and Ninth Street. Plans to expand the area were announced by the university in 2015. Since then, groups have been trying to preserve some of the historic homes, which were built between 1895 and 1971. One of the houses is on the registry for historic homes for the city and state. Executive Director of External Relations at UNR, Heidi Gansert, told the Reno Gazette-Journal that groups interested in buying the homes include organizations that work with the homeless, seniors and foster children. “Our goal is to keep as many together as possible,” Gansert told the RGJ. Moving the houses to other locations is estimated to be expensive, but the cost would be the responsibility of the buyers of the homes — not the university. The addresses of the 12 homes planned to be moved are 801 Lake Street, 825 Lake Street, 829 Lake Street, 843 Lake Street, 127 E. 8th Street, 815 N. Center Street, 820 N. Center Street, 821 N. Center Street, 829 N. Center Street, 839 N. Center Street, 847 N. Center Street and 895 N. Center Street. The university told the RGJ that keeping the houses would impede the university’s growth. According to the UNR masterplan, the land the houses currently sit on will be used to develop university buildings. “The goal of the City of Reno and the University is to create a vital urban district with a mix of academic, retail, commercial, residential, research and innovation, and public uses that will continue to the rebirth of Downtown Reno,” a briefing document said. As of now, the homes are used as housing or office space for students or staff, and the leases are due to expire on or before June 2018 and two of the homes stand vacant. The current residents have been notified of the plans to move the houses. Since the announcement of the plan to expand the university to this space in 2015, groups have worked to oppose UNR. The City of Reno’s Historical Resources Commission has strongly opposed the plans. They do not agree with the relocation and do not want the organizations that deal with the homeless, elderly and foster children to occupy the historical houses because of the damage these groups could cause.

  • ASUN Senate hosts special meeting on campus safetyASUN Senate hosts special meeting on campus safety

    This week, the Associated Students of the University of Nevada Senate held a special meeting, inviting the university community to voice their concerns about events that have impacted students and faculty this semester — including the events in Charlottesville in August, swastika graffiti in the Church Fine Arts stairwell, the traffic stop involving University of Nevada, Reno police services and a graduate student, another officer dressed as a negative rendition of Colin Kaepernick and more. Students call for university to make diversity priority on campus Although the meeting was open to the public, less than 10 people spoke — a low number compared to the amount of people that showed up to the special ASUN meeting held in the wake of Charlottesville. While the community was invited to talk about other events and issues, speakers largely focused on issues of diversity. There was agreement among speakers that something needed to be done at the university, but specifics differed. John Marrow, a UNR student studying social work, called for the people on campus with moderate political views to bring the political extremes together. He encouraged people to have conversations with others who have different views in order to “build bridges” on campus. Other people, however, wanted more action from the university administration rather than from individuals. Lewis McGreel from the College of Liberal Arts said the concerns of the students were not being met by the university, and that the “I am the real Nevada” T-shirt campaign and emailed statements were “useless” in response to the events that had happened. He said the university had a systematic problem and that people felt like nothing was being done. He did offer a solution to the problem, but said it was not just a “one-step policy solution”. A graduate student named Aubrey said she felt like the issues could be solved if the administration took time to know their student body, had smaller conversations and listened to “what matters to students”. Kevin McReynolds — the graduate student at the focus of the UNRPD police stop in late September — spoke about implementing a system to report acts of hate, racism and violence. He compared the design of this system to the one set up for sexual assault on college campuses. McReynolds said that the country was paying attention to UNR now, but not for the right reasons, and more needs to be done moving forward. The Senate listened to these concerns and will pass future legislation on it. After the special Public Comment, a regular Senate meeting resumed.
