Patrick Maderia, a senior theater major, talks with Roger Stevens, a homeless man originally from Chicago, during Project Homeless Connect 7, a one-day event at DU’s Ritchie Center. More than 600 homeless people came to campus April 24 for assistance with basic medical care, food stamp benefits, veteran’s services, resumé assistance, legal advice, haircuts, massages and clothing. More than 800 DU students, faculty and staff volunteered to provide one-on-one support for the homeless individuals. PHC 7 was a partnership between DU, Denver’s Road Home and the Mile High United Way.
Maybe not when compared to the 100 students, grades 4–8, who answered questions about locations all over the world in the National Geographic Colorado state championship geography bee at DU in early April. The winner earned a trip to the national finals in Washington, D.C., with a chance to compete for $25,000 in scholarships. DU provides the state winner with a two-year scholarship. Alden Savoca, 14, won the bee with this question. Could you have taken the title? Chiba and Nagoya, two of the largest ports in the world in terms of tonnage, are located in which country? A. China B. Taiwan C. Japan D. United States
Correct answer: C. Japan
DU makes Denver’s ‘Best of’ list
Westword’s annual “Best Of” collection of the weird, wacky and wonderful in Denver is on the streets, and as usual, DU hasn’t been left out. For 2009, the University has garnered meritorious mention in two distinct categories: ceramics and cookbooks. The culinary citation offers praise to Penrose Library for the 9,000 books and magazines that comprise its famed Margaret Husted Culinary Collection. It won Best Way to Spice Up the Kitchen Like It’s 1899. The Best Ceramics Show award honors Myhren Gallery for the show that director Dan Jacobs organized of “eye-popping” sculpture done over four decades by artist Paul Soldner. Images of his work can be found at www.paulsoldner.com. The Husted cookery collection includes tips on food and health published as far back as 1683 and is one of the three largest such collections in the United States. The material was acquired by the Boettcher Foundation and donated to the University in 1985. DU has been included in Westword’s list on a number of occasions over the years for accomplishments from art to athletics. Examples include Cab Childress, who was named Best Architectural Visionary in 2004, and DU hockey, which earned Best College Sports Team honors in 2005. The Ritchie Center was named Best New Building in 2000 and former DU hockey forward Paul Stastny was designated Best Avalanche player in 2007. The Westword selections are chosen largely by nominations from staffers, but some unscientific public balloting also occurs. Many of the categories are coveted, such as Best Talk Show Host, which went to Sandy Clough of 104.3 FM The Fan. But others are designed to fit the honoree, such as the band The Hollyfelds, which won for Best Band Playing Country the Way it Was Meant to be Played.

New research shows children take a toll on marital bliss
What married couples have suspected for years has now been proven by researchers at the University of Denver and Texas A&M — children can add problems and stress to a marriage. According to an eight-year study of 218 couples, 90 percent of the couples experienced a decrease in marital satisfaction once the first child was born. “Couples who do not have children also show diminished marital quality over time,” says Scott Stanley, research professor of psychology at DU. “However, having a baby accelerates the deterioration, especially seen during periods of adjustment right after the birth of a child.” The research recently appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The paper was authored by Brian Doss, assistant professor of psychology at Texas A&M, along with the team of researchers from DU including Stanley, psychology Professor Howard Markman and senior researcher Galena Rhoades. The $400,000 study was funded by a grant to the University of Denver from the National Institutes of Health. The research also showed couples who lived together before marriage experienced more problems after birth than those who lived separately before marriage. Those whose parents fought or divorced also experienced more problems. However, some couples said their relationships were stronger postbirth. Couples who had been married longer, or who had higher incomes, seemed to have fewer marital problems related to having a baby than those with lower incomes or who had been married for a shorter period of time. Stanley cautions against concluding that children damage overall happiness in life. “There are different types of happiness in life. While some luster may be off marital happiness for at least a time during this period of life, there is a whole dimension of family happiness and contentment based on the family that couples are building,” Stanley says. “This type of happiness can be powerful and positive, but it has not been the focus of research.”
Mill, an HRTM professor, gave etiquette tips during a three-course protocol dinner at the April 16 “Fashion Your Future” fashion show and dinner for undergraduate women and young professionals. The event is part of the “Backpacks to Briefcases” seminar series, which is designed to help students transition from school to the work place.

Alum brings computer shop to DU neighborhood
scar Hasbun (MS engineering and computer science ’04) knows computer problems are frustrating, especially for students with plenty of assignments and limited time. “Students don’t want to make an appointment and drive; they want to be served on-campus and in between classes,” Hasbun says. That’s why he’s moved his full-service IT shop, Zettalogica, to a location ideal for DU students at 2430 S. University Blvd. Zettalogica currently repairs about 5–6 Toshiba computers a day and provides small and medium-sized businesses with infrastructure management, custom software and technical training solutions, Hasbun says. Zettalogica is a Microsoft Gold Partner. Costs for repairs usually run about $89 for an hour of service. A full diagnostic fee is $59, but students get a 20 percent discount. Laptop rentals are available starting at $19 a day or $59 a week for students; regular prices start at $29 a day and $109 a week. Hasbun, the company’s CEO and president, expects the company’s service to grow to about 25–30 computers a day in addition to laptop sales and technical support. The service center is authorized to fix Toshiba, Apple and Intel computers, and all other computer equipment no longer under warranty. Zettalogica — zetta meaning the seventh power of a thousand and logica meaning “logical” in Spanish — began when Hasbun took family-owned business law and values-based leadership classes at DU’s Daniels College of Business. The self-described computer geek didn’t know much about starting a business, though. What he did have was $25,000 to put down with his wife, Debbie Sheanin, a customer service coordinator in DU’s financial aid office. He also had a strong desire to start a company. “I thought maybe I can make something positive happen,” says Hasbun, who notes his background in corporate business was mostly from Latin America and his native El Salvador. Daniels Professors Ronald Zall and Sam Cassidy, who Hasbun refers to as the “wise men” in matters of business law and ethics, helped Hasbun work out all the kinks. “I can only go so far alone; my knowledge is limited,” Hasbun says. Hasbun is certainly planning on going far with that help. Literally. In December 2008, he opened a Zettalogica shop in El Salvador with Carlos Lara (BS computer science ’06), who he met at DU while teaching as an adjunct in the computer science department. He’s also working to replicate the same thing in Norway with Sven Nico Eppeland (BSEE ’05, MBA ’05). “He’s so good at drawing people with all these different strengths, and he gets them tuned in with the company’s vision,” Sheanin says. The biggest challenge? Probably being a small business in a weak economy, Hasbun says. “Choice tilts to price-driven, and some customers start defaulting in their payments,” he adds. “We had to take measures to maintain liquidity, anticipating delayed incoming cash flows.” In October, Hasbun had to reduce his staff of 12 to five (there’s an additional two employees in El Salvador) after contracts were cancelled. “These people are my friends, not just my colleagues,” he says. “It becomes a personal dilemma, where I ask myself what is the right thing to do and how. That’s when I take myself back to the core values we wrote [when we started the business],” he says. “I thought in business school I was in it for profits and shareholder value, but walked out of it believing again that it was to maximize stakeholder benefit,” Hasbun says. “Zettalogica is here...to let the fruit of our ethical labor keep our business in the map.” >>www.zettalogica.com
Pig sculpture adorns Penrose Library
Sometimes you have to seek out art, explore its subtleties and ponder its muted hue. And then there’s Happy Life # 8, a bold, bright new sculpture that stands tall and proud in DU’s Penrose Library lobby. Complementing a Myhren Art Gallery exhibit called “Transforming Traditions: Contemporary Chinese Art from the Logan Collection,” the fiberglass sculpture by artist Chen Wenling features a smiling Chinese farmer hoisting an immensely fat sow on his shoulders. The sculpture is an accessible and enjoyable piece that can be viewed on a variety of levels, says Dan Jacobs, DU art curator and Myhren Gallery director. And at nearly eight feet tall and coated in bright red automotive paint, it’s hard to miss. Jacobs says when it came time to set up the Chinese art exhibit, which ran through the end of April, he saw an opportunity to reach beyond gallery walls with some of the highly visual pieces. “One of the first things that came to us was that some of this work would look great around campus,” Jacobs says. A search for the perfect spot ended in the main lobby at Penrose. The library, Jacobs says, is a place of reflection and study, yet is used communally and exposes many people to a striking work. In a way, Jacobs says, Happy Life is an ambassador for the exhibit. At first blush, the sculpture is eye pleasing and whimsical. But look a little deeper and, Jacobs says, there are messages from the artist. There’s a story of interaction between Western and Eastern worlds. In Asia, Jacobs says, the pig is seen as a sign of prosperity and good times. In the West, the pig can signify greed and excess. Combine the two, and you start to see a Chinese farmer who appears happy but who is saddled with something so enormous it raises questions about the moment’s sustainability. The sculpture has a distinct Chinese quality about it, Jacobs says, employing both a farmer with Asian features and the color red, which often is associated with China. But it also has a Western echo, as Jacobs notes the clear similarity to iconic European works of a farmer carrying a calf on his shoulders. Happy Life # 8 is at DU courtesy of Michael Micketti, Tom Whitten and Robischon Gallery.
DU law students take on international competition
First they took on the nation. Then, they tackled the world. DU’s Jessup International Moot Court team lived up to its reputation in international law this spring, fending off U.S. law schools in regional battles to win a place at the international competition, then turned in a top-level performance on the world stage. Five Sturm College of Law students — Matthew Cooper, Matthew Dardenne, Sunika Pawar, Krishma Parsad and Ruby Thapliya — traveled to Washington, D.C., in March to debate what organizers called a global issue that was “ripped from the headlines…the legality of humanitarian intervention and the problem of sexual misconduct by United Nations peacekeepers.” DU’s team went up against thousands of students from 80 countries in oral and written moot court presentations. In the end, DU was one of 18 teams to make it to the final round. The team’s written briefs, called a “memorial,” were judged second best in international competition. The team from perennial power Universidad de los Andes, in Bogota, Columbia, took first. “This team was great. They worked like dogs,” says coach John Powell, a Denver attorney and 1988 DU law graduate. “They did everything I asked them, and more. There were times when we’d been at it for hours and I said, ‘That’s it, let’s knock off,’ and they’d tell me, “You go on home, we just want to do a little more.’” Powell, a former editor-in-chief of the Denver Journal of International Law and Policy, says the team was focused on its written briefs and made a point of memorizing its oral presentations rather than depending on notes as other teams do. The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is hosted by the International Law Students Association. The event was created 50 years ago to promote international law and international advocacy. The competition is named after U.S. judge Philip C. Jessup, who was serving at the time on the International Court of Justice.
‘Snooze’ is a quiet success
f the story of the breakfast restaurant Snooze were to be made into a Hollywood movie, the studio synopsis might read like this: “Three DU fraternity brothers find meaning in marmalade, creating an over-easy, hash-brown ‘breakfast experience’ that turns pancakes and eggs Benedict into culinary magic. “The film will star Nicolas Cage as Jon Schlegel, a 1997 HRTM graduate and varsity soccer player. After eight years of building a breakfast menu, enduring 23 bank rejections and 16 failed bids to land an investor, Schlegel finally opens his restaurant in a nondescript building across from a homeless shelter. The place is wildly successful. “Starring Adam Sandler as Jon Schlegel’s brother Adam, the 1999 Daniels undergrad of the year and a former high-powered business consultant who gave up globe-trotting to be a breakfast business strategist with his brother. “Featuring Seth Rogan as Scott Bermingham, a former DU lacrosse player and Frisbee golfer, who became Snooze’s fresh-local-foods-and-everything-needs-to-behomemade chef. “And, in a star-making turn, Jessica Alba as Brianna Borin, a spring 2009 HRTM graduate who becomes Snooze’s assistant general manager 10 days after getting her BSBA degree and only weeks before Snooze opens its second 100-something-seat restaurant. “With cameo appearances by Rockies Manager Clint Hurdle and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, who are frequent fixtures at Snooze. Extras include the 450 or so restaurant guests who show up daily to dine in a casual, hip, artistic décor described as ‘Happy Days meets The Jetsons.’” The jury is still out on Snooze’s film prospects, but as its third anniversary as a restaurant passed on April 2, prospects for business success appeared solid. “In the last eight months we’ve tripled volume,” says Bermingham, Snooze’s chef (pictured right). “And we don’t advertise; it’s all pretty much word of mouth.” The Lodo eatery’s popularity has grown so steadily that about mid-summer Snooze will open a second location — at Colorado Boulevard between Seventh and Eighth avenues — in a building formerly occupied by a Boston Market. “During the week, I have families, pregnant women, power brokers,” Schlegel (pictured left) says of the parent restaurant at Larimer Street and Park Avenue West. “5280 [magazine] just voted us the best deal-maker breakfast joint.” That distinction could have something to do with Snooze’s pineapple upside down pancakes, steak and eggs Benedict and molasses-infused challah French toast, among other exotic breakfast creations. Snooze also features organic coffee from their own producer in Guatemala, in-house jelly and English muffins, local baked goods and every recipe made from scratch. Not bad for a kid from Littleton, who bused tables at 13 years old and cooked his way through high school in the food court at Southwest Plaza mall. “Now I can pair a sauvignon blanc with the right kind of fish. But I started off flipping quarter pounders,” Schlegel laughs. Schlegel’s first dream was to play soccer for Pepperdine, but he ended up staying in Denver when DU offered a better scholarship. He graduated in 1997 with a bachelor’s in hotel, restaurant and tourism management after four years of soccer and fraternity life at Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Among Schlegel’s fraternity brothers were his real brother, Adam (two years younger), and Bermingham. While Jon Schlegel was diving into the food and beverage business, brother Adam was pursuing business. Eventually, their paths converged. Bermingham picked up cooking skills on the road after graduating from DU with an environmental studies degree. Eventually he enrolled at the Cook Street School of Fine Cooking and honed his craft at Potager, a fine-dining restaurant in Denver. “As the owner of the restaurant, I drive the concept,” Schlegel says. “But I’m one person. One person can’t feed 450 people. It takes a team to be able to do that . . . and a lot of personalities.” >>www.snoozedenver.com
Toe tapping music
Kickin’ it with ‘The Foot’
ou can’t put The Foot down. The rock-funk trio comprised of three graduating University of Denver students has its sights set high. Weaving its way through Denver’s competitive rock and roll scene, the band has already produced a three-song EP and is poised to make this music thing a full-time gig. Guitarist Phil Barrett, bass player and singer Jeff McCollister and drummer Noah Shomberg, all 22, are building a bright, catchy sound unlike anything else on the Denver scene. And a recent trip to meet some serious music producers in Los Angeles provided some positive feedback and a hot new song. They’re currently working on a full-length album. The work in L.A. was hard, four days of long hours and doing the same songs over and over again. But band members say it hardened them and showed them that being a successful band requires dedication, determination and a lot of work. They emerged more serious about their music. McCollister said meeting the producers helped them hone their sound and learn what was working and what wasn’t. As an emerging band, he says the three are open to input and aren’t going to stubbornly resist change. “When it’s all done, do you want to be an obscure band and have no one listen to you, or do you want to have your message heard? Do you want people to listen to that record?” Barrett adds. The Foot — the name is a reference to the old television cartoon “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” — formed in 2008 and won a DU battle of the bands that spring, with first place awarding them a chance to perform at May Days. The three graduate this June. Barrett, from Greensboro, N.C., will have a degree in international studies and Spanish; McCollister, from Omaha, Neb., is earning a degree in classical voice; and Shomberg, from Long Island, N.Y., is completing his degree in real estate management. “After that, we get out there,” McCollister says. “This right now is where our main focus in life is … As long as you know that this is what you want to do, then it’s what you do. We’re all three committed to this.” “We want this bad enough to do the work that we have to do,” Shomberg adds. “We believe in this. But we need to be smart. Wanting it is one thing, knowing how to get there is the other.” The road ahead won’t be easy. Denver’s music scene is packed with quality acts. And for every band like The Fray or last year’s breakout The Flobots (with rock and roll viola player MacKenzie Roberts, who attended DU), there are scores of others every bit as talented who never hit the big stage. In the fractured national music scene, with downloads (legal and illegal) replacing album sales, artists are experimenting with different financial models. Some have connected with old-style management companies and major labels, others are trying the Phish model: constant touring and reliance on the sale of merchandise and tickets over large contracts and radio airtime. Members of The Foot have a long-term vision of success, but they aren’t over-thinking it. Either way is fine. Instead, they’re thinking about the near future. This summer, they say, will be dedicated to performing. They’ll be favoring local venues for frequent stage time rather than losing days on the road. “Every time we get up there, we learn something,” says McCollister. “The times we’ve made our biggest leaps were the times we didn’t play our best. It helps us move forward, figure out a new way of doing things, and we move on.” The Foot will be at the top of the bill for the first time May 2 at a show at Herman’s Hideaway. They’ll also be playing May 21 at DU’s May Days, and again in the Davis Auditorium in Sturm Hall on May 22. >>www.myspace.com/findthefoot

Bridge Community Garden takes root
DU’s Bridge Community Garden has arrived just in time for spring planting. The garden — located across from Centennial Halls at 1819 S. High Street — will be a place where neighbors and members of the DU community can request small plots of land to grow their own veggies, flowers and fruits. Ben Waldman, a junior international studies major and coadministrator of the Garden Steering Committee, anticipates the site will provide between 12 and 15 plots measuring 150 square feet, although plots may be halved to allow for more gardeners. The land, which DU purchased in 2005, will be converted to the garden at a cost of up to $12,000, Waldman says. The DU Environmental Team and the AUSA Sustainability Committee have already contributed more than half the cost, he says, and are working to fund the rest. The money will go toward costs associated with irrigation, soil amendment, community features (grill, arbors, picnic benches), tools, a shed, a seed bank, gravel pathways and shrubs. Plot-holders must abide by the University’s license and use agreement as well a number of stipulations devised by the steering committee. They also must pay an annual fee of $25. Gardeners who adhere to these rules are eligible to retain their plot the following year. Plot-holders will be notified in advance if the University uses the land for future development or expansion. Plots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Volunteer work to establish the garden continued through April; planting can begin once garden infrastructure is complete. The garden will be strictly organic, and the committee plans on organizing monthly workshops on topics such as managing pests organically, basic gardening, composting, canning food and conserving water. Two federal work-study positions will be established to assist with organizing workshops and managing conflicts, Waldman says. Michael Buchenau, executive director of Denver Urban Gardens, designed the garden’s layout. Several neighbors have credited the project with helping to break down the “invisible wall” between DU and the surrounding community, according to Zoee Turrill, AUSA Sustainability Committee member. While this partially explains the garden’s name, it was also somewhat fated — explains Gail Neujahr, a neighbor and garden steering committee co-administrator — as students found a broken foot bridge on the property. The students intend to repair the foot bridge and re-install it on the site. Waldman believes the garden will improve the community’s health in more ways than one.

Soccer standout scores spot on national team
Sam Garza vividly remembers scoring his very first goal in soccer. “Right after I scored, I just started running all over the field, laughing and jumping and waving my arms,” says Garza, a freshman standout on the DU men’s soccer team. That first goal came not long after he first started playing the game — at 4 years of age. Today at 19, Garza has more reason to celebrate: He earned a spot on the most elite young team of soccer players in the country — the United States Under-20 World Cup qualifying squad. The feat landed him in the DU history books as the first Pioneer to make the team. Incidentally, that means he has a legitimate shot at playing in the Super Bowl of soccer, the World Cup, which starts this fall. How good does one have to be to make the team? “On the 20-man roster, nine were pros,” says Bobby Muuss, men’s soccer head coach. “It’s an honor for any player, but for a college player, it’s a special honor.” What’s more, the team faced seven other world-class teams in a tournament in March and made it to the finals. “It’s an awesome feeling to represent the U.S.,” Garza says. “It’s like being selected for the dream team. Every time you put on the crest, you think about those who’ve fought and died for the U.S.” Just before leaving for the tournament, which was held in Trinidad, Garza sprained an ankle. The injury kept him off the field for the first two games. However, he started the semi-final and the final against Costa Rica, the eventual champion. “I thought he played well. He looked very dangerous … [and] impressed the local crowd,” Muuss says. Muuss minces no words when he speaks of Garza. “Sam is one of the most dynamic players in the country. And he’s getting better and better. For a player to be called in and succeed with no prior national team experience is a success within itself. We were proud of him.” Muuss says Garza’s speed is what sets him apart. A hesitant and humble Garza agrees and admits he’s able to “get a quick step” on defenders. “I’d say it’s my main attribute.” Garza is quick to credit his past coaches, fellow players and his family. “They all made me the player I am today.”
