Ad astra per aspera: students build satellite payload by Antonio Sanchez news@dailylobo.com

UNM student Jacy Bitsoie found herself driving down Paseo del Norte, chasing a runaway balloon in the name of science. “We were literally driving around north of Albuquerque, hoping to visually see the balloon come down or see the command module to fall with its parachute,” she said. Bitsoie had been struggling with GPS issues with her summer balloon project before, but never to the point where she lost all contact with it. But a speaker had been installed earlier on the balloon, letting out an alarm loud enough for a family to hear the balloon land in their neighborhood. “A family heard the speaker,

called us because it had our phone number on it and we were able to retrieve the command module that way,” she said. Bitsoie was one of nine undergraduate students this summer who launched and tracked high-altitude balloons into near space, the area between 65,000 and 350,000 feet above sea level that includes the stratosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere. Bitsoie said she was required to test radio systems and other electronics for the rigors of near space. She said the project opened her eyes to various types of engineering. “Going in as a civil engineer major, working with space dynamics and working with electronics was something completely different than from

what I was used to,” Bitsoie said. “It gave me an opportunity to work on projects outside my field and it made me realize that I do want to be a civil engineer. It just confirmed my passion.” Students worked with the Configurable Space Microsystems Innovations & Applications Center, a space electronics center at UNM, as interns for the University’s new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program. The STEP internship program was designed to help undergraduate engineering and computer science students gain hands-on experience in their career field.

(ESPA) satellite ring, a device that carries satellites into outer space, and a new high-altitude balloon project, which focuses on radio wave tests held in near space. This summer was the first partnership between COSMIAC and STEP, and 46 engineering students participated in the paid internship. In order to be eligible for this internship, students must attend at least two of the three advisory mentorship seminars, where students can talk to UNM faculty members and advisers about future classes and possible company internship opportunities. COSMIAC Chief Research Officer Steven Suddarth said the STEP program aims to give students a hands-on approach to engineering, an opportunity that a classroom setting won’t

offer. He said students have the opportunity to deal with realworld research problems, rather than practice on problems that are set up in the classroom. “Classroom problems by nature are set up to be not that easy in that minds of a student, but they’re terribly easy compared to a lot of real-world research problems in a sense that they typically work out to an answer that’s usually verifiable,” he said. “Real-world problems don’t tend to work out that way.” From errors with software tools, to mistakes made in documentation, Suddarth said the undergraduate interns faced technical issues throughout the summer.

“There’s something there that the students learn that they didn’t anticipate,� he said. “When they start out their summer, their planning process is they’re going to lay out that step and that step and that step. They get into it and realize they have to work outside the plan.� Student Preston Edwards participated in the ESPA ring project, which focused on maximizing the space used on the ring by increasing the number of satellites the ring can hold from six to seven. Edwards said the internship helps students get ahead of those who only have classroom experience. “I think it’s way more important in today’s economy to have actual experience in the field rather than solely just a degree,� Edwards said. COSMIAC deputy director Craig Kief said the STEP internship program works well because the program focuses on integrating different types of engineering and science students. “You had physics people, civil engineers, electrical engineers, you had mechanical engineers, all of them working together toward a common set of projects and that was probably the coolest part of the summer activity; just the intermingling of these different people and projects,� Kief said.

State made to fund sex change by Denise Lavoie

The Associated Press BOSTON — State prison officials must provide taxpayer-funded sexreassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder, because it is the only way to treat her “serious medical need,� a federal judge ruled Tuesday. Michelle Kosilek was born male but has received hormone treatments and now lives as a woman in an all-male prison. Kosilek was named Robert when married to Cheryl Kosilek and was convicted of murdering her in 1990. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf is believed to be the first federal judge to order prison officials to provide sexreassignment surgery for a transgender inmate. Kosilek first sued the Massachusetts Department of Correction 12 years ago. Two years later, Wolf ruled that Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender-identity disorder but stopped short of ordering surgery. Kosilek sued again in 2005, arguing that the surgery is a medical necessity. In his 126-page ruling Tuesday, Wolf found that surgery is the “only adequate treatment� for Kosilek and that “there is no less intrusive means to correct the prolonged violation of Kosilek’s Eighth Amendment right to adequate medical care.� Prison officials have repeatedly cited security risks in the case, saying that allowing Kosilek to have the surgery would make her a target for sexual assaults by other inmates. But Wolf, who was appointed to the federal bench by President Ronald Reagan in 1985, found that the security concerns are “either pretextual or can be dealt with.� He said it would be up to prison officials to decide how and where to house Kosilek after the surgery. Diane Wiffin, a spokeswoman for the prisons department, said the agency would have no immediate comment on the ruling. “We are reviewing the decision and exploring our appellate options,� Wiffin said. In a telephone interview last year with The Associated Press, Kosilek said the surgery is a medical necessity, not a frivolous

desire to change her appearance. “Everybody has the right to have their health care needs met, whether they are in prison or out on the streets,� Kosilek said. “People in the prisons who have bad hearts, hips or knees have surgery to repair those things. My medical needs are no less important or more important than the person in the cell next to me.� Wolf noted that the Department of Correction’s own medical experts testified that they believe surgery was the only adequate treatment for Kosilek. The department’s ex-commissioner Kathleen Dennehy testified that giving Kosilek the surgery would present insurmountable security concerns, but Wolf said the inmate had proven that those purported concerns masked the real reason for denying surgery: “a fear of controversy, criticism, ridicule and scorn.� Kosilek’s lawsuit has become fodder for radio talk shows and Massachusetts lawmakers who say the state should not be forced to pay for a convicted murderer’s sexchange operation — which can cost up to $20,000 — especially since many insurance companies reject the surgery as elective. House Republican Leader Bradley Jones said it is difficult for him to believe that a sex-change procedure is medically necessary. “It’s one thing to say, ‘I have cancer and am in need of treatment,’� Jones said. “It seems to be more medically desirable than a necessity.� He also worried that the decision could open up a “Pandora’s box� of requests for medical procedures from other inmates. In 2008, Republican lawmakers, including then-state Sen. Scott Brown, filed legislation to ban the use of taxpayer funds to pay for the surgery for prison inmates. The amendment did not make it into law. Brown, now in the U.S. Senate, said Tuesday that the surgery would be “an outrageous abuse of taxpayer dollars.� “We have many big challenges facing us as a nation, but nowhere among those issues would I include providing sex change surgery to convicted murderers,� Brown said in a statement. “I look forward to common sense

prevailing and the ruling being overturned.� Inmates in Colorado, California, Idaho and Wisconsin have sued unsuccessfully to try to get the surgery, making similar arguments that denying it violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection against cruel and unusual punishment. Wolf noted that Kosilek’s genderidentity disorder has caused her such anguish that she has tried to castrate herself and twice tried to commit suicide. Kosilek’s lead attorney, Frances Cohen, called the decision courageous and thoughtful. “We feel very grateful that the judge listened very carefully to the medical experts and has given Michelle Kosilek what the prison doctors had recommended,� Cohen said. Ben Klein, a senior attorney at the Boston-based legal group Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, said Wolf’s ruling recognizes what some medical experts have said for years: that sex-reassignment surgery can be a “legitimate life-saving medical treatment for transgender people.� Klein said other inmates seeking the surgery can cite Wolf’s ruling, but they would still have to prove that prison officials showed deliberate indifference to their medical needs. “Not everybody will be able to prove it, but at the same time, the prisons’ decisions have to be based on proper medical care and not bias,� Klein said. In Kosilek’s case, the judge said, female hormones have “helped somewhat,� but the inmate “continues to suffer intense mental anguish� because she truly believes she is a woman trapped in a man’s body. “That anguish alone constitutes a serious medical need,� Wolf wrote. “It also places him at high risk of killing himself if his major mental illness is not adequately treated.�

LETTER

Schrader sabotages his dignity with raunchy letter Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the letter “Feelings between men should never be hateful,” published in the Aug. 29 issue of the Daily Lobo. In the letter, Don Schrader shares his vision of ideal male relationships. Open letter to Don Schrader: You and I have known each other many years. Though I’m not gay, I have supported gay rights and have, in letters to local newspapers, praised your knowledge and stance on various nutrition and sociopolitical issues, once even likening you to Mahatma Gandhi. However, your increasingly frequent self-absorbed comments on “hot sex,” etc., not only display a form of the very competition among males (your vigorous daily exercises to better compete in sexual attractiveness) that your latest letter condemns, but also, and mainly, seriously detract from the greater good you do, too often coming across primarily as myopic nutcase rants and even thinly veiled sex-recruitment ads. Please, Don, wake up to your more important societal value. You’re needlessly harming your greater legacy. Kent Ponder Daily Lobo reader

the threats, warning that the action would set a dangerous international precedent. The U.K. later tried to backtrack, claiming it was merely clarifying its legal position under Britain’s own Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act, which allows the host government to determine what land is considered to be diplomatic or consular premises. The following day, Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa granted political asylum to Assange, ratcheting up the diplomatic tension. Patiño cited reasonable concerns that Assange might be extradited to the U.S., which could lead to his indefinite incarceration or even execution. President Correa said he shares Assange’s fears that if he’s handed over to Sweden he will be extradited to the U.S. to face charges over WikiLeaks. The British Foreign Office said it was “disappointed” by Ecuador’s decision, but it still fully intended to uphold its binding agreement to extradite Assange. American and European sources insist the U.S. has filed no criminal charges against the WikiLeaks founder, and that no attempt will be made to extradite him from Sweden. Assange and his lawyers aren’t buying it, however. At the pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning (the soldier accused of uploading some of the most politically damaging files to the WikiLeaks site), a U.S. Army investigator confirmed in court that the FBI was secretly targeting the “founders, owners or managers of WikiLeaks” for prosecution under the Espionage Act. Another leaked Pentagon memo described how WikiLeaks should be destroyed with a smear campaign leading to “criminal prosecution.” Last month, the Sydney Morning Herald disclosed that the U.S. is conducting an “unprecedented” legal pursuit of Assange. The sex crime allegations are a smokescreen behind which several governments are trying to shut down WikiLeaks for exposing their secret

plans for war, occupation and destruction. The excuse of “national security” is used by countries like the U.S. to withhold critical information from their own citizens. If the evidence that WikiLeaks seeks to provide was more readily available for public scrutiny and widely disseminated, many of the unlawful and immoral decisions made by our leaders behind closed doors could, perhaps, be avoided. Predictably, the mainstream U.S. news media (mostly owned by defense contractors with a vested interest in keeping their crimes from public exposure) continue to defame Assange as a “high-tech terrorist,” even though some of them, like the New York Times, profited directly from information provided by WikiLeaks. In a recent interview on Venezuelan television, Assange argued that democracy in Western countries is an illusion, and that the constant surveillance of citizens is leading to the creation of a “transnational totalitarian state.” He said, “This is an international phenomenon that isn’t just happening in the U.S. … it’s bigger than the U.S., and it’s taking us to a dark place.” Assange said that basic human rights in the West are being quietly eroded, and that the public is being negatively influenced by “massive press manipulation.” Freedom of the press is under serious threat around the world. According to the 2012 World Press Freedom Index, America’s ranking fell once again in the annual study. We’re currently tied with Argentina and Romania at No. 47. The U.K. ranks No. 28.

Day of the Dead alive and well by Antonio Sanchez culture@dailylobo.com

A six-horned, papier-mâché demon snarled over professor Regina Corritore’s shoulders as she stood by her desk. Corritore teaches “The Art and History of Día de los Muertos,” an honors course at UNM which focuses on the Day of the Dead. Students learn the history of the holiday, while also organizing and preparing for the city’s annual Día de los Muertos parade. The class hosts free and open-tothe-public art workshops on Saturdays throughout September and October. Corritore first taught the class last fall while she was the art director of the South Valley Día de los Muertos Marigold Parade. Corritore said the class tries to dispel false assumptions of the holiday. “There’s a lot of misassumptions with the Day of the Dead,” she said. “‘Oh, it’s like Halloween.’ It’s not — people have these assumptions, and we’re just trying to give them correct information.” Día de los Muertos takes place every year on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, Nov. 1 and Nov. 2. Traditionally, the parade is celebrated with commemorative floats and murals, honoring the lives of loved ones who have passed. Floats give participants a chance to be creative, but murals tend to focus on loved ones, with photos and related items placed by the mural. Corritore said she was surprised when her students last year took to the emotional aspect of the parade. “I think I’m just teaching an art activity, but people really get into the therapeutic aspect of it,” she said. “With people, you can tell they’re making it with love and the loss of the person — but more, they’re doing something to remember them and honor them.” Corritore said she grew up celebrating the holiday; she attended church and was raised with a personal altar in her home. Corritore said she now looks at the holiday as a way to reinstate spiritual ancestral relationships. “There’s a sense that you

Courtesy photo Parade organizer and Day of the Dead class assistant Rusita Avila said Día de los Muertos provides a healthy and positive way for people to think about mourning and the loss of a loved one. “Día de los Muertos really lends itself to play and get out some of those issues, to talk about death freely,” Avila said. can have closer connections with people who have passed. It brings these smells, these scents, these memories. I spend a lot of time thinking where my aunts and uncles came from and their struggles; I ask my mom stories that I remember; I think about, ‘well, she doesn’t have much longer on the Earth,’ so there’s certain things where I’m like ‘I bet my mom knows that,’ about my personal history and my family history.” Parade organizer and class assistant Rusita Avila said the holiday’s spiritual ties can help bring light to an otherwise dreadful topic. Avila’s connection with death is apparent — she helps others deal with grief and loss issues as a mental help therapist. “Día de los Muertos really lends itself to play and get out some of those issues, to talk about death freely,” Avila said. “When you’re in the community doing this, even doing art workshops, it has a healing aspect to it.” Although the holiday is associated with personal healing, Avila said the parade’s goal is to achieve community healing. The parade takes place in Albuquerque’s South Valley, an area that Avila said has received unwarranted criticism. “The South Valley has gotten a

bad rap, so it’s really great to sort of be those ambassadors of the South Valley, to encourage and require them to explore that and embrace it,” she said. Student Jane Manthei said she took the course last year as a way to participate in community service. Originally from Winslow, Ariz., Manthei said the class helped her connect with the city. “I ended up learning more about the city I’m living in because I wasn’t really familiar with Albuquerque, with the South Valley, at all before this course,” Manthei said. “It’s one of the most hands-on courses I’ve ever taken, which was interesting because I totally walked into it expecting to not really participate, and by the end of it I was really participating and interacting with the community.”

Arts & Music

Many children of the 1980s and ’90s remember Skeletor crying, “I’ll get you for this, He-Man!” One of the original animators who worked on the television series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Rex Barron, lives right here in Albuquerque. “We thought that stuff was not terribly high quality,” he said. “But I’ll still run into people who’ll say ‘I loved He-Man!’” Barron started working in animation before he graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. He worked in Hollywood for 11 years on multiple projects, including the animated version of “The Lord of the Rings,” the Pink Panther cartoon and “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.” In the late ’80s, Barron even worked on “Starchaser,” one of the first feature-length 3-D animated films. “It didn’t do very well,” he said, “but the 3-D looked pretty good.” He said being an animator sounds like a fun job, but in reality it can be just as tedious as any other 9-to-5 job. “When you’re drawing Smurfs for 40 or 50 hours a week, you begin to dislike these characters after a while,” Barron said. “So you start seeing bits of graffiti popping up around the studio that’s like ‘this is what I’d really like to do to this character if I could.’” Barron left Hollywood for New Mexico shortly after his father died. He started displaying some of his more serious works, such as paintings, at a gallery in Santa Fe. This is where he met Tom Ross, a children’s book author who gave Barron his first opportunity to work as an illustrator on the book “Eggbert The Slightly Cracked Egg.” Barron became passionate about illustrating and said his work in animation prepared him for working on children’s books. “I was thinking visually, and I was thinking sequentially,” he said. Barron illustrated many children’s books over the course of his career, and even wrote a few himself, such as “Showdown at the Food Pyramid!” and “Fed Up!” Both books’ main characters were irritated vegetables.

“When you’re drawing Smurfs for 40 or 50 hours a week, you begin to dislike these characters,” ~Rex Barron animator said. “If you look at his paintings now, there’s quite a bit of illustration in them.” Barron eventually stopped illustrating after having difficulties with his publisher. His last book was published in 2004. “At the time, I was very

disappointed when my gig with children’s books came to an end,” he said. But since then Barron has done a lot of freelance work and continues to show pieces at various galleries around the state. His most recent show was in 2011 in San Antonio, NM, and featured colored pencil art. He also does presentations for school children on how books are put together at a publisher and what it takes to be an illustrator. He said that being versatile and working on technique is the key to success for young artists. “You’ve got to do the boring stuff before you do the fun stuff,” he said. “Take classes to find out what really clicks for you.”
