GMO wheat found in Oregon | THE DAILY BAROMETER
Former boxer assists local boxing clubs n
George Evans, former potential Olympic athlete, now studies, coaches aspiring boxers By Hannah Johnson The Daily Barometer
George Evans, now a coach of Oregon State University’s Boxing Club, could have boxed in the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow had the United States not boycotted the games. He was first introduced to boxing when he was 5 years old when his regular babysitter was sick, and the babysitter’s brother came instead and asked his parents if he could take him to the gym. At the gym, the boxing coach felt Evans would make an amazing boxer and then took him on nightly visits to the gym to hone his skills. Evans’ babysitter died of cancer at 18 years of age. “He was such an influence to me when I was younger,” Evans said. “Seeing all the trophies he had won was really impressive to me.” As time went on, Evans started beating professional boxers when he was still an amateur. He signed on for a professional contract for $50,000 per month, and from there, all he had to do was train. “When I finally lost a competition, it broke my heart,” Evans said. “I wanted to be a champion. Losing made me want to be that much better.” Evans won his first 25 fights before he lost and has competed in 483 total fights at both the amateur and professional level. Throughout his career, he has lost 63 matches. Although there were many great moments in his career, his life took a turn with his fame. “It started playing a huge role in my life because everyone wanted to be my friend,” Evans said. “I call it famousism. I wound up getting caught in cocaine, and that’s why I ended up quitting boxing.” He said that part of his life isn’t spoken about much because he became a large supplier of methamphetamine in his area. He then went to prison for 7 1/2 years for a crime he says he did not commit. Evans said he was found guilty by association, giving a ride to people he said had perpetrated a crime. It was soon after when he found his religion. Evans attributed his faith to the survival of his 29-year-old daughter through cancer. Evans has been out of prison for almost 2 years and is giving back to See BOXING | page 2

Music department appeals budget, receives full funding n
After budgeting issues with the Student and Incidental Fee Committee, music receives funding through contingency By Lara von Linsowe-Wilson The Daily Barometer
The Oregon State University music department received a recent scare from the Student and Incidental Fees Committee when they were informed that they would only be receiving about half of its required funding for the 2013-14 school year. However, the budget has since been amended, and the music department will once again be awarded their full requested allotment for the fiscal year. The decrease in budgeting for the department came from misconceptions between the Student Musician Advisory Board and the SIFC, arising from the ruling that a board could not be funded unless full reports of the organization’s spending habits from the previous year were given. Because of recent changes made to the internal music staff this year as well as the shifting of the program to the College of Liberal Arts, the department was not able to provide all of the information needed when the budgets for the year were due. This forced the SIFC to drop the music department’s requested fee from $4.39 to $2.20 per student per term. Music department staff attribute the gap in budget reporting to what has now been a nearly

OSU student uses worms to look at the aging process n
Jeremy Northway, with geneticist Dee Denver, studies aging patterns in C. elegans By McKinley Smith The Daily Barometer
| THE DAILY BAROMETER
Jeremy Northway received a grant to study evolution of C. elegans.
A tiny worm is wiggling its way toward our understanding of a complex issue: the genetics of aging. Mutations in DNA enable organisms to evolve. The question Jeremy Northway asks is, “How?” Northway is an undergraduate researcher at Oregon State University intent on employing this worm, known as C. elegans, to find answers. As a freshman, Northway became interested in research during an introductory biology course. “It was called the phage genomics lab, and the whole concept was that students would go around campus and find their own phage out of an environmental sample,” Northway
said. “Phage are viruses that infect bacteria.” That was where Northway met Dr. Dee Denver. Denver is a geneticist who used C. elegans in his doctoral thesis. Denver taught a section of the class on worm genomics. The topic interested Northway, so he asked Denver to mentor him. As a University Honors College student, Northway must conduct research and present an undergraduate thesis before he can graduate. Denver helped Northway to frame his research question into a feasible project. “Dee is a really good researcher, especially for undergrads and people who haven’t done a lot of research,” Northway said. “He’s really good at the process of scientific discovery and letting you discover yourself.” Northway received funding through a National Science
Foundation grant to OSU to study the number of generations it takes for the worm to evolve in a new environment. His results could have implications for aging research. The genes he studies are related to how cells break down as they age. “It just sounded interesting, like, ‘Oh, we’re going to evolve these worms in a specific condition and see what comes out of it,’” Northway said. “Now I’m realizing that it really does have more of an application besides the ‘mad scientist’ outlook, like, ‘I get to evolve something. I get to change it.’” The word “worm” invokes images of earthworms or parasites like roundworms. But C. elegans is so tiny that it eats bacteria. These transparent worms live in compost heaps and garden soil. Evolution is hard to study in longSee WORMS | page 6

MUSIC n Continued from page 1 seemingly incoherent report given by the music department during February’s budget meeting. “It’s just not up to par, and I don’t think it’s very acceptable,” he said during the meeting. Alvarez and the rest of the SIFC members believed the report they received looked like an exact copy from the previous year. Although the music program refuted this by assuring the SIFC that they were trying to create consistency from year to year, the SIFC assumed that their reports showed a lack of preparation. “For our standards, it didn’t reach the bar that we were demanding across other budgets, so that’s why we reduced their requests in half,” Alvarez said. “We weren’t really sure what they were spending, and numbers weren’t quite matching up. They did really care about the funding, we just needed them to show us that they were serious.” When the SIFC originally cut the budget back in February, they expected the department to appeal with a contingency fund request in the spring to make up the difference — and it did. The request to make up for the rest of the department’s funding was officially approved on May 30. The contingency fund is used for boards funded by student fees that have a sudden or pressing
need for funds outside of its normal budgets. When the department went back to the SIFC with the correct budgeting numbers for the year, it was granted full funding for its programs. Despite recent struggles, records have shown that the music department has had a clean financial history in the past. “The music department receives funding from a huge variety of sources in addition to the SIFC, and each source has slightly different rules on what it can and cannot be spent on,” said Greg Urban, chairman of the Student Musician Advisory Board. “The Arts and Sciences Business Center has done a fantastic job of keeping track of where [the money] goes and where it comes from.” Although many collegiate music programs have been in danger of being disbanded due to the arts not being seen as important as other academic areas, Urban believes this has never been an issue at OSU. “The SIFC has always been supportive of the music department and the services we give back to students,” Urban said. “We never felt that the SIFC was attacking us because they didn’t believe we were relevant, just that we needed to get the proper documentation together to become fully funded.” Lara von Linsowe-Wilson, news reporter

Butz’s reign as Secretary of Agriculture under Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford led to a drastic change in U.S. agriculture. His policies coincided with the rise of major agribusiness corporations and the decline of financial stability of small family farms. Landis said most small farms are not able to sell to local grocery stores because they cannot drive to Safeway or Fred Meyer and sell the stores their goods. In most cases, they would have to drive up to the distribution center miles away. Going through a chain of packing and distributing, transporting and selling through a retail store, the farm receives significantly less profit from their crop. The farmers’ market, among other direct farmer-to-consumer sales, such as food stands and co-ops, offer small farms a way to sell their products outside of mainstream supply chains. The Veggie House
BOXING n Continued from page 1 the community and continues to love doing what he does best: fight. He now has many goals for the future and is ready to put his involvements in cocaine and selling meth behind him. Although he wants to continue coaching and sees enough potential and possible future Olympians, he is now going to school at Linn-Benton Community College. “I’m currently going to school to become a crisis counselor, and I want to continue to mentor the youth and influence the choices they make in their lives,” Evans said. He is currently an assistant coach for Dan Dunn, the head coach of the Corvallis Boxing Club and the Boxing Club at OSU. The Corvallis Boxing Club works to train competitive amateur boxers. Both clubs are open to all, and even if participants are not interested in competing, they are still allowed to show up to both clubs. Likewise, if the participants are interested in sparring but are not at the competition level, they can still attend both of the boxing clubs. “I see everyone in the Corvallis Boxing Club and the
OSU Boxing club as champions just by showing up and succeeding at something they’ve never done before,” Evans said. Dunn and Evans started coaching together in the late 1990s. “George is the most loyal friend and sincere person I’ve ever known,” Dunn said. “You can always count on him to be there, and I strive to be more like him. I think we all should. When he speaks up on something, you know it’s not about George, but the person you’re training, and that’s good for everyone. ” According to Dunn, they agree that every boxer is different, and that each person applies the technique differently than anyone else. The cycle they have developed is a combination of techniques that gets new athletes to learn faster. “George is an accomplished Olympic athlete and family man who has faced many personal problems throughout the years, and yet he still shows up to practice,” said OSU student Ashley Clarke, nicknamed “Smashley,” the secretary of OSU Boxing Club. “What I admire the most about him is his dedication to the club and the individuals in them.” Hannah Johnson, news reporter email@example.com

We are convinced the building is going to collapse once you leave since we know you are the only person holding Snell Hall up. Go enjoy the good life, see the world, listen to music and collect all the art. We know Student Media would be a lot better if only someone had listened to you. Yea to the residents of the Halfway House — including Mr. Toasty. It’s been a good couple of years. Let’s find the beat with a stethoscope, push it and celebrate just one more time. Yea to the Student Experience Center maybe going up in the next year or so. We like shiny buildings, and we are looking forward to the lactation room that is planned for the building. It should be a good addition for student mothers. Yea to sunshine, shorts, dresses, warm weather and boat shoes. Since we know everyone’s GPA is taking a dip this term because of it, we say enjoy the weather, get sweaty and enjoy your friends. You’ll never be this cool again. Unless, of course, you are Betty White. Yea to sneaking onto the tops of roofs, watching baseball games, getting sweaty from dancing and talking until the wee hours of the morning. Yea to baseball. And especially our Beaver baseball team. We know you can go all the way to Omaha and win it all. We won’t stop believing. Yea to Beaver sports in general this year. Yes, there were some disappointments, but there were some sweet victories. We are looking forward to next year. Yea to the yeas and nays taking a decidedly sarcastic tone for the rest of this column. Yea to slow-moving decisions, bureaucracy, and the powers that be. Just because you say you have our best interest, does not mean you have our best interest. How do you know our best interest? Yea to getting a receipt. You know that $50,000 one you just paid for. And then they want you to dress up in silly clothes to get it. America. Yea to tuition going up yet again. You know, if the cow keeps on giving milk without complaining, you might as well go yank on its teat one more time. Yea to this being the final Barometer of this school year. You now have the opportunity to spend your days not complaining about spelling and grammar mistakes, laughing about articles that you claim are false and belittling people who are learning about their jobs just as much as you are learning about whatever it is you are learning about. If only your mistakes were so public. Yea to it being week 10. If this is your last week here at OSU, we look forward to continuing to read your mildly sappy Facebook posts for the next few days. If it isn’t, keep on keeping on. Even if it is expensive and for the most part a waste of time, a college degree is kind of valuable. Or someone told us as much. And for one more time, stay frosty.

y greatest accomplishment in college is being a regular for breakfast at the Peacock Bar and Grill. Perhaps it is the result of me living out my old-man fantasy of being able to dress, say and do whatever I want, but many a weekday morning, I occupy a stool at the bar at the Peacock, I unfold my New York Times, and coffee and biscuits and gravy appear before me, and I never utter a word beyond “Thank you,” and “Yes, please.” The Peacock is not my favorite bar in Corvallis — Squirrels gets that honor — but the Peacock is a great bar. It is perhaps the most egalitarian establishment I have ever been to, and this is its greatest lesson. The regulars in the morning normally get there before me. Double vodka and cranberries are lined up soon after 7 a.m., screwdrivers are poured all morning long and Nikki the bartender is making one of the best Bloody Marys in town at hours
Iler @doniler that, even in my most Hemmingwayesque moments, I wouldn’t consider drinking at. People are just getting off working the night shift and are unwinding for a bit before heading home. Others — on the first and 15th of the month — are cashing in those disability or unemployment checks for a solid $2 breakfast and a couple of dollars of Pabst Blue Ribbon. There is no judgment for drinking this early in the morning. It just happens, and the coffee-and-water types sit shoulder-to-shoulder with the daydrinking professionals. Every now and then, a homeless man might wander in, clutching a couple of dollar bills and some change. He’ll look nervously about, order a $2 breakfast,
down a PBR and then leave, saying “thank you” a lot. And that is why the Peacock is great. Within a 24-hour period, you are liable to see business professionals taking a quick, cheap breakfast sitting next to the homeless. You might then see young college kids downing vodka red bulls next to a table where Broadway Dave is sipping on some water after a day of work, getting ready to croon his next karaoke song on Monday night. You will see rich kids in bro tanks and fancy sneakers grinding next to Dancing Mike, who is waving his long grey hair and beard everywhere and just feeling the music. The Peacock accepts nearly everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. If you only have five dollars, you can still pay cover, down two beers, leave a tip and have a good time. If you have all the money in the world, well, you can throw your card down and buy rounds for everyone. You can show up in a ratty T-shirt or dress in your new button-up from
Nordstrom. In either, you’ll fit in, and you’ll end up seeing people you like and those you never expected to. It’s rare to find a place so welcoming of such a broad cross-section of society enjoying themselves and finding we all have a lot more in common than we thought. And I like that. You can hang out with athletes and nobodies. You can talk to the too-old-to-be-out-ona-Friday or the just-turned-21. You can dance or grind with men or women. You can not drink at all or have a few too many. The Peacock likes you as you are. It’s not a dive, it’s not the awful club with the mean bouncers and long lines, it’s not the sketch place you feel afraid in. It is America at its finest, soaked in Pabst Blue Ribbon and sausage gravy. t

Letter to the Editor Smoking ban a year later
Surveying is a façade Surveying students is a waste of time that makes the program appear democratic when in reality, it is simply an authoritarian decision handed down by President Ray’s administration. I am not arguing that the ban helps non-smokers because it eliminates most second-hand smoke from the campus, but we shouldn’t pretend that the decision is one that students have any say in
(or at least not the ones who disagree with the decision). When the campus tobacco ban was being discussed, ASOSU passed a bill to have the then-current regulations enforced and to look into alternatives such as smoking dens as opposed to an outright ban. Despite this decision by the student government, the administration decided to disregard it and pass the tobacco ban anyway. The survey sent out is simply a façade to make it look like students have some sort of decision-making power at OSU. There is simply
no way the school administration would allow smokers back on campus now that they have gotten them removed from it, and why people would want to ban smokeless tobacco has nothing to do with their health but their desire to get rid of habits they don’t approve of in others. Johnson and Race saying the “ultimate” decision rests with the students is completely wrong and insulting. Michael Bunker Senior, political science

‘Ask an ethicist’ Greetings members of the Oregon State University community. My name is Thomas McElhinny, and with the help of my cohorts in the applied ethics master’s program here at OSU, I would like to help address any ethical conundrums, concerns and challenges we might face. Discussing ethical concerns, and morality more generally, are often volatile conversations. Questions concerning what it might mean to live a “good” life, how to act when values conflict and how to cultivate ethical habits are long standing and important avenues of inquiry. Every week I intend to offer my perspective on situations sourced from the OSU community, and perhaps punctuate by answering emails with original content I find important, interesting and nutritive. Speaking of emails: I need your help. Do you have an interesting ethical question or situation in your life? Email me at: AskAnEthicistOSU@ gmail.com. It can be anything from
a concern about lifestyle choices, conflicts with neighbors or business practices here in Corvallis. Surely, this is not an exhaustive list and I expect to see some novel questions. My aim in this column is not simply about “solving” ethical puzzles, but about engaging the OSU community in a discourse centered on ethical issues. I hope this column will not only unlock some of the expertise already available in our networks, but expand it. Before moving on to today’s question, I want to take a moment to thank the OSU community for their questions over the last 10 weeks. Ask an Ethicist could not have come to be without your help, so thank you. For those of you who have enjoyed this column for the last couple months, I want to let you know that we intend to bring you more iterations for the summer editions of The Daily Barometer and hope to continue to receive your help moving forward. See you next week.
Should we compliment someone’s unhealthy weight-loss?
ear Ask an Ethicist, The other day, my friend and I were talking about a mutual friend who had recently lost a good bit of weight. I made some comment about how good the person looked, and that I was happy for them. Then my friend told me that the person had lost the weight in a pretty unhealthy way — by basically just not eating. This made me wonder: Should we be cautious about complimenting people on weight-loss? If people lose weight because they starve themselves or purge, and then we compliment them on how great they look after losing weight without knowing how they lost it, are we encouraging them to keep up with the unhealthy dietary habits? Should we always ask how they lost the weight before giving
The Daily Barometer compliments? -Hold Steady This is an excellent question, Hold Steady. Thanks so much for taking the time to submit it. It seems to me that there are really two issues at work here. First, we must recognize the unfortunate fact that eating disorders are dangerous and all too prevalent. Second, we should see that certain idealized forms of beauty exist in the cultural imagination but rarely in reality, which may deviate from healthfulness as a result of symptoms such as See Ethicist | page 7

Sometimes the stuff we write in the Barometer doesn’t sit well with the student-athletes we cover. Take this Trevor Romaine tweet on April 17, for example: “The Barometer today is a waste don’t pick it up! A bunch of children wrote the articles!” And just yesterday, one OSU gymnast tweeted: “… You write articles… Don’t judge what we or any other sport does.” We get it. Some people don’t take well to criticism, especially from peers who they think should be supportive. This week, we decided to flip roles with studentathletes. We put ourselves in their shoes by competing against them at their sport, and then gave them the opportunity to rip us to shreds in the Barometer. We did this, in part, so we’d get to experience firsthand how difficult it is to do what they do. And we did it in part to give them an opportunity to release any built-up anger they have toward us. We’d like to thank all the student-athletes who participated. Especially you, Trevor Romaine.
The Barometer: Grady Garrett, Alex Crawford OSU student-athletes: Roberto Nelson, Devon Collier Results: • 2-on-2: Nelson/Collier defeated Garrett/ Crawford (11-2) • Also competed against each other in a 2-on-2 shooting competition called “tips.” Nelson/Collier won all five games of “tips.”
Overall assessment: Nelson: “They failed all the assignments, but I give them a D-minus just because they showed up to class.” Collier: “I give them credit for trying to compete with us. It shows they’re competitors. But sometimes you’ve got to give up and just let things go.” Scouting reports on Crawford and Garrett: Nelson: “Coming into this, I knew Mr. Crawford would be a hustler and Grady would be a shooter. I could just picture Grady at Dixon
late at night, after bashing on the basketball team, thinking he could be out there making some 3s against us. And it was tough for Mr. Crawford and Grady to get up and dunk. They couldn’t even touch net when I saw them try to touch net.” On trash talk that was exchanged: Nelson: “I got into Grady’s head a bit when he was shooting. He missed about four or five in a row. It’s nice to flip it on him and comment Collier on his game in a negative way, so it was good to get in his head and watch him start throwing up bricks when he was shooting from the same spot the whole time.” On Collier dunking on Garrett: Nelson: “It was kind of like what happened when LeBron went up and Jason Terry tried to jump with him. It was one of those dunks. It was nasty. I wish we could put a picture in the Barometer of Devon soaring over Grady and Grady making a face like he’s about to cry.”

Challenge 3: One-on-one pass coverage The Barometer: Andrew Kilstrom and Warner Strausbaugh OSU student-athletes: Obum Gwacham, Micah Hatfield Completions: On Kilstrom *(9/10), on Strausbaugh *(9/10) *Both incompletions were either throws off the mark or drops. Not a result of good defense from Barometer defenders Gwacham’s assessment: The Pros vs. Joes competition turned out the way I thought it might. Both Warner Strausbaugh and Andrew Kilstrom showed some confidence as they stepped on the field to showcase their talents against Sean Mannion, Micah Hatfield and myself. Singleteaming and double-teaming the receivers didn’t seem to make much Gwacham of a difference, but
Challenge 4: Penalty kicks The Barometer: Grady Garrett OSU student-athletes: Jacy Drobney, Sammy Jo Prudhomme Results: • Round 1 Garrett kicking vs. Prudhomme: 2/5 Drobney kicking vs. Prudhomme: 4/5 • Round 2: Prudhomme kicking vs. Garrett: 4/5* Drobney kicking vs. Garrett: 4/5* * Prudhomme and Drobney’s misses were both off target. Garrett only got a hand on one of the 10 kicks. Drobney’s assessment: It’s amazing the change in confiDrobney dence and opinion when the criticizer is now being critiqued. Grady has been OSU athletics’ biggest critique when it comes to
the furthest back we went was 30 yards and every one of his kicks would have gone straight into the back of the offensive linemen. I was a little disapRomaine’s assessment: When I was told I was going to have pointed in the leg a kick off with Grady Garrett, I thought, strength of Grady, “Wow this is going too be to easy,” and because he could Garrett it was very easy. It was so easy that after barely make a PAT. our first couple of field goals I decided Maybe after trying to kick left-footed to make it a closer to kick a field goal, Grady will now have competition. Grady did go 5-for-9, but some respect for kickers. Garrett (1-for-2) • 55-yarders: Romaine (1-for-1), Garrett (0-for-1, attempt landed on 15-yard-line) *Romaine’s lone miss from 25 yards was left-footed. He also made from 30 yards with his left foot.
Strausbaugh’s analysis: I would hate to be a cornerback in the Pac-12. I knew going into it how hard it would be to even attempt to cover Obum Gwacham, but once you actually put yourself out there and try to stay with him, you truly see just how fast and strong these guys are. We did plays from 20 yards away from Strausbaugh the end zone, and
competition and social events. Am I bitter? No, but the tides were turned when he decided to take on Sammy Prudhomme and I in a little PK competition. I knew it was game over from the start when Grady arrived at the Garrett field wearing basketball shoes and eventually changing into what looked like football cleats from the glory days (high school). I will give him some credit for his ability to shoot the ball with decent pace, but the score didn’t emulate his ability. After Sammy blocked anything and everything he attempted, we had to suffer seeing him take a turn in goal. Before he could even react the ball was in the back of the net. We reached a point beyond giggling because it gave hope for him to block the next shot. I will commend him on his effort and kahunas for attempting to stand in goal
Pay for three months,
Kilstrom’s analysis: Having watched these guys during practice and in games for a couple years now, I thought I knew what I had gotten myself into before it started, but didn’t realize I’d be burned as badly as I was. While I knew my top-end speed Kilstrom wasn’t anywhere near Gwacham and Hatfield’s, I didn’t realize how quickly they are able to accelerate. It seemed like they were at full speed after two steps. The most demoralizing part was after the fifth or sixth play when Obum flew by me for a touchdown and said he was only going half speed on the way back to the line of scrimmage.
and take shots from soccer players who could easily pay their revenge for his “entertaining” articles. With the rollover defeat he took from us, I would have paid to see him make the attempt of testing his ability against men’s soccer. Garrett’s assessment: Taking PKs wasn’t all that tough. I’m actually a bit disappointed in myself that I lost to Drobney, because I think I could get lucky and beat her three times out of 10. But playing goalie was a completely different story; I severely underestimated how frightening it is. I’m thankful they didn’t ever Prudhomme kick it directly at me, because there’s a decent chance I would have stepped out of the way and truly embarrassed myself.

then 5 yards out. One play stands out the most: Mannion and Gwacham told me to play press coverage, so I start off a yard away from Gwacham, Mannion says “go,” I look at Gwacham, he shimmies left, shimmies right, then bolts to my right and I stood frozen like a deer in headlights.

PHILADELPHIA (CNN) â€” Her family says she was brilliant, caring and had the ability to find beauty in everything. Anne Bryan was in her first year as a fulltime student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She was among the six people killed Wednesday when a building collapse spilled rubble into a thrift store. Roseline Conteh, Borbor Davis, Kimberly Finnegan, Juanita Harmin and Mary Simpson also died, according to Mayor Michael Nutter. â€œAnne lived her life with an open heart,â€? her family said in a statement. â€œShe gave herself to her family, friends and anyone in need of help. Her generosity was limitless.â€? Nutter promised Thursday morning a â€œwide-rangingâ€? investigation into the collapse of a four-story wall of a partially demolished building that toppled onto a Salvation Army store. Later in the day, he released the name of the victims. â€œToday, we mourn the loss of six Philadelphians who perished in the terrible tragedy ... Our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of the deceased,â€? Nutter said. For more than a dozen hours, searchers had climbed over shards of wood, concrete and rebar before calling off the search for possible survivors late Thursday afternoon. Fire Department Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said officials were â€œabsolutely sureâ€? there were no more victims in the huge pile of rubble. The scene will be turned over to acci-
dent investigators from the police and inspections departments and the fire marshalâ€™s office, he said. Bright light in the darkness Early Thursday, rescue workers celebrated after finding a 61-year-old woman buried in the rubble. CNN affiliate WPVI interrupted regular programming to deliver the astonishing news. Myra Plekam moved her hand up and moved her body, a WPVI reporter on the scene said, seeming himself amazed by the rescue. An ambulance raced Plekam to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she was in critical condition Thursday. â€œIt feels outstanding to be able to pull somebody (out) alive,â€? said Michael Resnick, the cityâ€™s public safety spokesman. Thirteen people were injured. Firefighters â€” apparently moved by the tragedy â€” placed flowers at the collapse site. Legal proceedings begin The first lawsuit following the collapse was filed Thursday by attorneys for a 54-year-old woman pulled from the rubble by a firefighter. Robert J. Mongeluzzi, who represents Nadine White, asked for a jury trial in her personal injury case against the building owner and the demolition company. He filed a motion in state court asking that the defendants preserve all written records and other evidence related to the building. â€œMrs. White was trapped in a nightmare when the collapse occurred,â€? he said through a written statement. â€œShe mourns
WORMS n Continued from page 1
10 generations. By then, the majority of the worms were resistant to the deadly chemical. The worms had evolved to adapt to their environment. Northway traces the results to changes in the cells of C. elegans. The chemical damages mitochondria, which make energy for cells. When mitochondria are damaged, the cells die. The progeny of the resistant worms may possess an advantage that enables them to live. Scientists hypothesize that similar processes are involved in aging. Because the worms evolved to resist this stress, genes in humans may also function in this manner. Northway said his research with the unassuming worm could lead to further investigation even if his data doesnâ€™t turn out to be statistically significant. Analyzing C. elegansâ€™ genes could provide clues to what causes aging and maybe how to slow it down. Gene regulation could provide a clue. â€œIt would be interesting to see what specific genes are being up- or down-regulated as a result of this stress, and I think that it might be a natural path to look at some kind of human aging diseases like Parkinsonâ€™s or Alzheimerâ€™s,â€? Northway said. This summer, Northway will work with a graduate student on C. elegans genes related to aging.
lived animals such as humans, but C. elegans reproduces in only four days. A group of them can show evolutionary changes in a few weeks. What scientists learn from experimenting with worms can apply to humans. But, unlike worms, humans canâ€™t be frozen, thawed and then observed moving around as if nothing had happened. â€œ[The worms] are really resilient to temperature changes, and because of that, you can freeze a population in a sugar solution, and, if you take it back out of the freezer, let it thaw out and put it back on the plate, you can actually start up a population of whatever it was when you froze it,â€? Northway said. In Denverâ€™s lab, a giant freezer holds the samples with the worms in tiny-capped cryogenic vials. The temperature is kept at a cool -112 degrees Fahrenheit. Before Northway can pipette the worms into petri dishes and observe them, the worms must thaw out for an hour. Northwayâ€™s plan relied on natural selection. He exposed the worms to Paraquat, a potent herbicide. Many worms died, but some that were slightly more tolerant managed to eke out an existence and reproduce. Those worms were dosed with more of the chemical â€” and the process continued for
for those who died and has asked us to do everything we can to require these defendants to preserve critical evidence and to make certain those responsible are held accountable by a jury.â€? White was working at the Salvation Army store when the collapse occurred. In papers filed Thursday, her attorneys indicated they would seek at least $50,000 in damages. Famed prosecutor tours site STB Investments, the owner of the collapsed building, issued a short statement through an attorney Thursday. â€œOur heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by this tragic event. Please know that we are committed to working with the City of Philadelphia and other authorities to determine what happened yesterday.â€? Philadelphia assistant district attorneys Jennifer Selber and Edward Cameron and district attorney spokeswoman Tasha Jamerson toured the site Thursday. Cameron specializes in prosecuting people accused of homicides for the city and is well-known nationally for prosecuting abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. CNN asked Jamerson why they were looking at the site. â€œItâ€™s way too early to be discussing any aspects of the building collapse,â€? she answered. â€œWe took a tour of the scene just like the mayorâ€™s office took a tour and the police took a tour. Along with the rest of the city, the entire DAâ€™s office is thinking about and praying for the victims of yesterdayâ€™s tragedy.â€? Crime scene units also toured the site.
WHEAT n Continued from page 1 Flowers. Yet, Asian countries, the biggest consumers of Oregon wheat, do not approve of genetically modified organisms. â€œOur findings have a potentially significant impact on the Pacific Northwest wheat industry,â€? Mallory-Smith said. â€œThere are certain percentages of the public that believe crops should not be bread from genetics.â€? Fears of contamination have sprung the USDA into beginning its own investigation of the presence of the wheat in eastern Oregon. Investigators from the USDA have been sent to find the source and determine the extent of the spread of the GMO wheat. The USDA is responsible for regulating, controlling and enforcing the United Statesâ€™ agricultural policy. Despite Asia being wary of GMOs, some experts see GMOs in a different light. â€œI see a place for GMOs as a crop improvement tool [because] we are going to need to modify our crops to future climate change and increased demand for food,â€? Zemetra added.

FARMERS n Continued from page 2 in Corvallis along with local restaurants, Block 15 and Les Caves, also purchase produce from local farmers who participate in the market. “There are many farms at the Corvallis Market where the market may be the main place they sell,” said Larry Lev, an agricultural economist at Oregon State University. “The Corvallis Farmers’ Market sales have been increasing. The market is way more successful.” Lev started working at the Corvallis Farmers’ Market in 1997. He said the first time they measured the number of customers, there were 1,800 customers. Now, they routinely have 6,000 customers on Saturdays. According to Lev, part of the success behind the Corvallis Farmers’ Market lies in the broader range of products available. The market offers flowers, cheese, meat, eggs, produce, breads and pies.
