Campus to take lead of nuclear consortium Check Online
Reporter Jalal Buckley discusses the composition of the consortium and what research will take place.
By Jalal Buckley | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org The National Nuclear Security Administration announced June 9 that it has chosen UC Berkeley to lead a multi-institution consortium that will work to further nuclear nonproliferation and safety in nuclear technology. The new National Science and Security Consortium will continue technical research being done in nuclear technology and will work toward training young people, giving financial support to undergraduates, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students working on nuclear security. Edward Watkins, director of the Office of Proliferation Detection at the National Nuclear Security Administration, said the five-year program would be a way to integrate students into the lab system “to the degree that we can motivate students into nuclear nonproliferation applications.” “We’ve got the chance to go through an entire cycle of students and see it from the beginning to the end of a student’s life cycle,” he said. In addition to involving students, the consortium will take a unique approach to tackling nuclear security issues. Chancellor Robert Birgeneau explained in a speech at a reception for the consortium that the consortium will aim to bring together technical research and public policy issues, drawing upon experts from a vast spectrum of backgrounds. This approach acknowledges that the problems surrounding nuclear security are not merely scientific in nature and that an appreciation of the political issues behind nuclear weapons proliferation is important as well. The establishment of the consortium marks nuclear security as a priority, both on an educational and a governmental level. Anne Harrington, deputy administrator for defense nuclear nonproliferation, recognized the importance of nuclear security in a statement. “First, we need to create new technologies to detect nuclear proliferation or testing, and to monitor compliance with nuclear nonproliferation and arms control agreements,” she said in the statement. “Second ... we need to invest in the next generation of nuclear nonproliferation expertise and provide links between the talented students in our universities and the nonproliferation challenges that our national laboratories will confront in the future.” Nuclear security is not, however, limited to proliferation and nuclear weapons. The recent disaster in Fukushima, Japan, has revealed the risks that come with using nuclear power and the need for experts [that] who can ensure that existing reactors continue to operate safely. “There’s obviously a lot of interest in seismic safety,” said Parney Albright, principal associate director of global security for the Lawrence Livermore

County officials host forum By Tiffany Chiao | Staff email@example.com Several Alameda County officials met and hosted a forum at The Way Christian Center in Berkeley on Friday to discuss Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposal to shift responsibility for certain state services to local governments. Programs including mental health services, child and foster care and criminal justice have been proposed to be transferred to local entities as a costsaving measure. While most of the speakers at the forum — including Assemblymember Nancy Skinner and Alameda County Supervisor Keith Carson — said they believe realignment would be beneficial to the community in the long run, all stated they had concerns about funding. “Local governments have been providing budgetary support to the state for almost two decades,” said Alameda County Administrator Susan Muranishi. For example, Muranishi said a total of about $3.4 billion in property taxes that should have gone to counties were instead transferred to the state government. Counties have already been heavily depleted of necessary funds, and transferring services without adequate financial support at this point would stretch them even further, she said. Carson said there are three guarantees counties need in order to make the realignment proposal work. First, he said, is flexibility in how counties could respond to their new responsibility. In addition, he said counties need to be given legal and financial protection that was written in the U.S. Constitution. Carson said having the laws be constitutionally mandated would allow legislators to use them as a reference in the future. Each service facing a transfer is preparing for what changes need to be made and how they will impact the community. According to Michael Corbett, a partner at Suter, Wallauch, Corbett &
County leaders met to discuss a plan to shift responsibility for funding some services to local governments.
Tiffany Chiao elaborates about the issues discussed at last Friday’s forum, hosted at The Way Christian Center in Berkeley.
Associates, in the criminal justice sector, one of the biggest proposals is that low-level offenders will now be sent to county jails instead of to state penitentiaries. Corbett added that there is a misconception that this proposed shift means prisoners would be released immediately, while in fact it would only apply to people who were sent to court after the proposal was enacted. “It’s prospective,” he said. “It’s a process that’s going to take a while to get fully implemented.” Lori Jones, interim co-director of the Alameda County Social Services Agency, said this type of
miscommunication between legislators, counties and the public is another barrier that must be addressed. “There’s a lack of clarity of what exactly is being realigned and counties feeling like they’re not sure what to expect,” she said. Alex Briscoe, director of the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, agreed. Briscoe said the county needs to be able to keep up with and keep track of the proposals being drafted by legislators to prevent further budget cuts to essential programs. Officials at the forum said they also need to make sure legislators recognize that each county has individual standards, which they said aren’t being acknowledged currently.

Two Berkeley Hills fires under investigation for arson By Allie Bidwell | Senior Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
A 1994 Mercedes Benz station wagon, above, was destroyed in the fire on the 500 block of Cragmont Avenue, which broke out on Wednesday.
Two fires that broke out within 20 minutes of each other at residences about one block apart in the Berkeley Hills Wednesday morning are being investigated by the Berkeley Fire Department for arson. While responding at 12:43 a.m. to a report of a fire at a home at 548 Cragmont Ave., fire crews noticed a second blaze just a block away at 494 Cragmont Ave., according to Deputy Fire Marshal Steven Riggs. Riggs said it is standard procedure for the fire department to investigate all fires as being potentially criminal until it can prove otherwise. “It’s not always obvious with fires whether it was accidental or if there was criminal intent or natural causes,” he said. “To be on the safe side, we will go in and make the worst-case assumption and treat it that way until we can rule out other causes.” He added that the department does not usually classify the cause of a fire as arson unless it is sure that fire was set intentionally and that all of the elements for a criminal charge of arson are present. Sylvain Bournhonesque, 80, said he was asleep at his home on the 500 block of Cragmont Avenue when he and his wife heard a loud bang. He then got out of bed, went outside and saw his 1994 Mercedes Benz station wagon — which was parked in the driveway — and the fence next to the car enveloped in flames.
He said that though the fire department responded quickly, his car was “totally trashed” and his garage door was also burned by the time the crew arrived. Bournhonesque said he and his wife were upset by the loss of their car, which he said was “running like a new car” due to recent work on it. “You feel fortunate that that was the extent of the damage,” he said. “Well, not fortunate, we lost the car. We’re very sad about losing the car.” Bournhonesque said that aside from the damage to his car, fence and garage door, he and his wife are experiencing some trouble with smoke damage in their house. The second fire appeared to involve materials on the outside of the building, such as miscellaneous combustibles, furniture and materials from a seating area outside, according to Riggs. He said that the building was not damaged during the fire. According to Bay City News, Fire Chief Debra Pryor said in a statement that fire officials are “considering that it was a coincidence” that the two fires broke out at nearly the same time a block away from each other but that they are concerned just the same. The residents of the two homes were evacuated temporarily while the fires were being extinguished, but they were allowed to go back into their homes after a short time because there was no fire or smoke damage to the homes, Pryor said. Allie Bidwell is the news editor.

Protest precedes imminent early release of Mehserle Protesters have gathered in Downtown Oakland to protest the release of former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle, who was convicted of killing Oscar Grant III and has served 11 months for his crime. A Los Angeles jury convicted Mehserle in July 2010 of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Oscar Grant III, who was shot and killed at the Fruitvale BART station on Jan. 1, 2009. Throughout the case, Mehserle has claimed he thought he was reaching for his taser and not his gun when the incident occurred. In November 2010, following a racially charged case that sparked riots
and protests in Oakland, Mehserle was sentenced to two years in prison — the minimum amount of time that can be served for someone convicted of involuntary manslaughter. ...

With the help of UC Berkeley’s Geospatial Innovation Facility, the California Energy Commission has launched a website that grants public access to California’s climate change data, including past information and future projections. Cal-Adapt, which was launched Tuesday, is an interactive website that the facility began developing in August 2010 which specializes in innovative environmental research projects that compile data regarding factors affecting the climate in California. The data that will be displayed on the website have been compiled since 2003. After receiving a sponsorship of $500,000 from the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research Program and advisory oversight from the California Natural Resources Agency, the Geospatial Innovation Facility began developing the website. Cal-Adapt aims to synthesize data produced by research organizations and statewide universities, including UC Berkeley, UC Merced and UC San Diego, to create maps and modules
pertaining to state climate changes. The website integrates 150 years of climate change data that take into account different carbon emission scenarios, which are presented to the user in a visual format depicting rising sea levels, temperature changes and wildfire risks, among other variables. The website provides access to climate scenario data so users can develop adaptation strategies for changes such as hotter temperatures, increased sea levels, decreased snowpack and increased risk of wildfires. According to Sarah Van Wart, web application developer for Cal-Adapt, the website provides climate projections, not predictions. She added that the website is not meant to predict future outcomes but rather only seeks to display data gathered on climate change in California through extensive research. To provide more information for the website’s users, the developers upload data regarding wind speed, soil moisture and humidity. “We are targeting three audiences: the expert who can use the data for research, the technician and public agencies who can use it for city planning and the general public who can use it to understand climate change,” said Kevin Koy, manager of the Geospatial Innovation Facility.
To make the data legible, developers have inserted definitions to technical language, links to articles explaining the societal relevance of the change and social networking features that allow the user to share desired information on websites like Facebook and Twitter. One of the goals of the site is to utilize extensive climate change research to assist the general public in acquiring a better understanding of how climate change may occur under different social and economic scenarios in their respective areas of residency, according to Van Wart. Upcoming features on the site include daily temperature projections, according to Geospatial Innovation Facility data developer Brian Galey, as well as a community project in which users will aid scientists by reporting initial flower blooms in their neighborhoods. “This innovative website will offer the general public information to assess if their farms, towns, cities, business, counties would be affected and to begin planning for the forthcoming changes,” said Adam Gottlieb, manager of media communications at California Energy Commission, in an email. “By sharing information now, local communities can make better informed decisions later.”

Former Berkeley High School student Emily Kassier, who was known for her bright smile, big heart and love of teaching, died June 2. She was 18. Kassier, a 2010 graduate of Berkeley High School, was a t t e n d i n g Bennington College emily in Vermont, and kassier while final autopsy reports have yet to be released, according to Kassier’s mother, Mary Ann Kassier, her daughter suffered two grand mal seizures immediately prior to her death. According to Mary Ann Kassier, paramedics tried to resuscitate her daughter, but she was later pronounced dead. While Emily did not have a history of seizures nor had she ever experienced a seizure, she had been complaining of migraines prior to her death — a symptom that is now being looked at as possibly being related to
her death, Kassier’s mother said. “She wanted to come back here to teach at Berkeley High School, the reason being specifically to help those kids that struggled a little bit and to help them feel more confident and help them aspire to go to college too,” she said. Janet Marsden, director of communications at Bennington College, said the small campus was “heartbroken” by Kassier’s death and that it was wellknown that Kassier wanted to one day become a teacher. “We have about 670 students here at Bennington, so it’s not very big, and you can imagine how something like this really just takes the community,” she said. “Her death has had a real pull on the community. Our thoughts are with her family and friends, and she will be sorely missed at Bennington.” Marsden added that in addition to taking a wide range of courses at the college, Kassier had participated in a mentoring program at a local high school — Mount Anthony Union High School — where she provided guidance to at-risk students. According to Kassier’s father, Charlie Kassier, his daughter also participated in a similar program at Berkeley High School, where she was able to help out in an English class where the teacher

was on maternity leave. “Emily knew the people and how the place worked,” he said. “Everyone thought she was a good mentor.” According to Charlie Kassier, the memorial service held for his daughter on Saturday had many of her friends expressing how much they would miss her — from friends flying to Berkeley from Bennington College to express their condolences to the senior class at Berkeley High School making a poster with many students penning a few words of kindness to the family and saying how much they will miss Emily. “People can say positive things, but I’m not sure I’d really do justice to her,” Charlie Kassier said. “She was committed, and quality mattered to her. Her friends are broken up by this, more so than adults in some cases.” Kassier’s mother said in addition to her daughter being involved in volunteer extracurricular activities, Kassier was also involved in dancing at Berkeley High School. It was in these activities, Mary Ann Kassier said, that her daughter’s qualities of being “a good friend” and being compassionate, kind and intelligent really shined through. It was also through the

SEX ON MONDAY
Unsexy sex tips to know
Professor emeritus of forestry dies at age 95
ex is gloriously disgusting. A wonderfully fun meld of sweat, saliva and sexual fluids, the result is more than a little gross. Looked at from the right angle, sex is down right unsexy. Anyone who has been down in the trenches can tell you: there are some pretty unsavory side effects of sex. There is nothing quite like an infection to put a damper on your sex life. The more sex you have, the more likely you are to get a urinary tract infection (UTI). The easiest way to prevent it: get up and go to the bathroom after sex. This clears out the bacteria that can get pushed into the urethra. Not sexy to think about, but it keeps the sex-a-thon going. I’ve never gotten a UTI, but I know enough friends who have to know that I am lucky. Taking a break from cuddling to grab a robe and head to the bathroom is worth it to avoid several extremely miserable days of cranberry juice and a burning sensation. After sex, however, isn’t the only time to think about cleanliness. If you’ve been walking around all day, sweating in the summer sun, expecting your significant other to get anywhere near your nether regions is a bit of a tall order. A quick clean up with a damp wash cloth or baby wipe makes oral a lot more plausible, and a lot less rank. In fact, you may just want to grab your partner and start the foreplay in the shower. It’s a quick path to both clean and turned on. Though you may still want to have baby wipes around, they are useful for a couple of reasons. If you are introducing lube into things at all, and don’t want to get lube on everything you touch for the entire night, baby wipes can be handy. Personally, I hate having sticky hands. I store my baby wipes and lube together, because for me, you can’t have one without the other. Sticky isn’t sexy. hen you have gotten truly covered in sexual goo, having something on hand to wipe down with before heading to a common bathroom could save a few awkward questions. I may not have a whole lot of shame when it comes to sex, but there are only so many people who need to see me covered in cum. If you aren’t the only thing that ended up covered in cum after some amazingly dirty sex, waiting until your semesterly laundry day to wash it out of your sheets and clothes will mean you end up with some rather permanent sex stains. Get to it quickly enough, and cum washes out in the normal laundry. Wait a little longer, and a spray and wash should still do it. Let it crust over in the corner, and you have semen stain tie-dye. After a particularly intense bout of sex or making out, if you find that it looks like you’ve been mauled by a
Erica Chase firstname.lastname@example.org vampire, baby wipes and wash water aren’t going to do much — and really, neither is your normal make up. Something designed to deal with slight variations of skin tone, and the occasional red dot isn’t going to cut it for a giant purple bruise. o cover up a hickey, you need something with a yellow base to counter act the purple. Get a good, thick liquid foundation and apply carefully just to the hickey, let dry and apply your normal powder makeup to blend. If you’re a guy with a hickey, suck it up and get some makeup, or sport the popped collar look for a week. Trust me, the makeup will hurt your image less. The fun thing about hickeys is that how easily you bruise can depend on a lot of things. Like if you are keeping in mind that orgasms help with headaches, so you pop an aspirin and place a booty call, that aspirin can make getting a hickey more likely. Any sort of blood thinner, like aspirin and most pain killers, can make bruises, and thus hickeys, easier to acquire. I learned this first hand when I traded a tension headache for looking like I was a vampire’s lunch. Luckily, I had a friend with the right kind of makeup, along with a penchant for scarves for all seasons. Summer scarves: a useful fashion statement to have on hand. Pre-sex fashion has a few pitfalls as well. If you’ve dropped the money on a sexy get up and need to remove some hair to fit the outfit, spring for a new razor. A dull blade is the quickest route to razor burn. Finishing up with cold water can help avoid irritation, too. If you’ve gone one step further on the path to expensive sex and scheduled a wax, give yourself at least 24 hours between wax and nooky, or you will be sporting sexy negligee accessorized with angry red bumps. A pre-sex grooming tip that everyone should keep in mind is file your nails. Don’t just cut them, you want to avoid sharp edges. Though not nearly as fun to think about as the sweaty and passionate bits, it’s the unsexy parts that keep the sex rolling along smoothly.
By Ayesha Khan | Staff email@example.com Harold Heady, a professor emeritus of forestry in the UC Berkeley College of N a t u r a l Resources, known for his sense of humor and unconventional teaching style, died April 28 in La Grande, Ore. harold He was 95. heady Born on March 29, 1916, in Buhl, Idaho, Heady was orphaned at the age of 12, though he still managed to put himself through high school by working at a farm to support himself financially. In 1938, Heady earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Idaho in forestry and range management. In pursuit of a higher education, he went on to receive his Ph.D. in 1949 from the University of Nebraska. Heady had taught at Montana State University and Texas A&M University before becoming a part of the UC Berkeley faculty from 1951 to 1984 to carry out quantitative research. In recognition of the work he did while on campus, Heady received the Berkeley Citation award in 1991 for his significant contributions in his field. “Aside from being hard-working and creative, he was a reasonable risk taker in his professional and academic career,” said James Bartolome, one of Heady’s former students and a campus professor of rangeland ecology and management. “He gave up a tenure

Grant: Attention to safety concerns
expected to be an important issue
From Front National Laboratory. “Nuclear safety has always been a concern for not just the general public but also for regulators and practitioners in industry. Really having a good technical understanding of the various failure modes in nuclear power (is needed).” Albright said future nuclear power plant production needs to be expanded in order to combat greenhouse gas emissions.
“That means that we’re going to be expanding nuclear reactor capacity in this country, and that means in turn that we need to pay a lot of attention to the safety concerns of the public and the safety concerns that surround nuclear power in general,” he said. “We’re talking about new types of nuclear power reactors that will be cheap and will reduce the capital costs associated with nuclear power.”

LETTER TO THE editor
Vacancies harm city
—Barbara Lee, Congresswoman
Thank you for J.D. Morris’s article on the online poll regarding shopping on Telegraph Avenue. People seem eager to misinterpret this poll, in which students express a wish to see less homeless people on the street. I believe it is safe to suggest that all of us, the whole community and perhaps the whole world, hope to see an end to homelessness someday. That does not mean anyone, certainly not UC Berkeley students, should be mischaracterized as embracing anti-loitering or anti-sit-
ting laws which burden law enforcement and send vulnerable people circling through the courts, making it harder to escape the cycle of poverty. The students had valuable suggestions for more appropriate goods, more public art, more music, more dancing. The business associations should pay attention to those suggestions instead of abusing the poll to fuel more discriminatory laws. The more serious burden on our commercial districts is the over 200 empty storefronts waiting, sometimes for years, for tenants who are in turn waiting for landlords and property

owners to lower their outrageous commercial rent rates. Large property owners can write off these paper “loses,” and have no incentive under the current system to lower their rents. Our city’s general plan refers to a vacancy tax, which has been successfully implemented in other cities (Washington, D.C.) but has yet to be implemented here. We need to implement a retail vacancy tax and curb the blight of empty storefronts so that we can once again have thriving commercial districts. — Carol Denney, Berkeley resident
A happy conclusion HIGHER EDUCATION By refusing to hear the challenge to AB 540, the U.S. Supreme Court has made the correct decision.
he U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal last Monday that challenged California Assembly Bill 540, which allows undocumented students to pay resident tuition at in-state colleges. The decision is a welcome conclusion after years of legal challenges, beginning when the original lawsuit was filed in December 2005. Undocumented students qualifying under AB 540 make up a small population of the University of California student body, estimated by UC President Mark Yudof in a March 8 letter to number between 390 and 488 students. Regardless of legal status, everyone deserves the opportunities this world-class university has to offer if talented enough to earn acceptance. It would be unwise to deny future leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs the chance to reach their full potential because of their immigration status. Preventing this small but ambitious population of students from having the chance to gain an education would deny the state the future economic benefits stemming from education. While AB 540 is an essential
step toward making concrete, positive change in the undocumented community through education, it also applies to U.S. citizens. It is imperative for opponents of AB 540 not to politically distort the law, which at its core maintains students’ strong ties to California by requiring students to complete three years at a California high school and either graduate in-state or attain a GED. Undocumented students must also file or plan to file an affidavit expressing intent to apply for legal residency as soon as possible. Had the Supreme Court overturned AB 540, California would have made higher education even more financially burdensome to undocumented students and in doing so lose out on incalculable future benefits. But at the same time, the university and the state cannot afford to offer in-state tuition to all students regardless of whether or not they meet the law’s criteria. We are pleased with the decision — the survival of AB 540 is paramount to making education more available to all Californians, and an educated California is a strong California.
A relevant case-study HIGHER EDUCATION The Bayh-Dole Act is still a relevant tool in maintaining continued innovation at research universities.
he U.S. Supreme Court case Stanford v. Roche, which centered on Stanford University’s attempt to assert control over an HIV-detection kit invented by School of Medicine professor Mark Holodniy, appeared to come down to semantics. Fortunately, the ruling on June 6 is not fatal to the BayhDole Act, which allows universities to retain title to inventions made during federally funded scientific studies and is necessary for universities to further develop inventions made with grant money. While Stanford v. Roche is a unique case due to the ambiguities surrounding Holodniy’s contracts, the case is significant because it exemplifies the importance of clear contracts between institutions sponsoring projects with federal grants and the professors who have access to that money. Though the Supreme Court ruled that Holodniy’s contract with Cetus Corporation — later acquired by Roche Molecular Systems Inc. — took precedence over his contract with Stanford, the case can still be used as a learning tool for research universities. Contractual agreements must be clear in order for the Bayh-Dole
By Maen Mahfoud
Act to apply. Without such clarity, a university cannot retain title to inventions — an unfortunate loss for both research universities and the people they serve. When applied, the Bayh-Dole Act maintains the public nature of federally funded research. In most instances, the royalties that ensue from inventions made with federal dollars should be used in a public manner. In the case of a research university, these royalties should be used for education and research funds, maintaining scientific excellence and ultimately benefiting the community. While it is difficult to deny the importance of intellectual property and the rights of individual inventors, a balance must be found where royalties arising from grantsponsored research are clearly marked for both the researcher and the public who sponsored the research through tax money. The University of California is a flagship research university partly because it attracts world-renowned scholars and partly because it continues to serve the people of California through innovation. We hope that Stanford v. Roche reminds the students, faculty and administration of the stakes: funding, research and title.

Studying abroad provides invaluable life experiences By Christine Deakers Special to the Daily Cal email@example.com Before this semester in Dublin, Ireland, I didn’t know my long-lost cousins, how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness or give tips on raising a prize-winning Greyhound. No conselour or guidebook can predict such diverse accounts. Despite the
Nik ki D anc e/st aff
adventures, many students who return to our purple mountains majesty might bypass the stories and give generic responses like “I am a changed man/woman” or “it was the best time of my life.” At times, the benefits to studying abroad can be indescribable. Figuring six-plus life-changing months into a few phrases can be overwhelming; however certain elements distinctly sculpt an experience. The academic rigor can change from program to program depending on your host university, travel company and even grading scale. A new learning arena provides fresh perspective on academic pursuits or grants a denizen with a bit more down time. Trinity College Dublin’s expectations were similiar to UC Berkeley’s, but there were some positive European differences. The library becomes a better companion and great Euro-saver since most Irish students only check books out rather than buy a bundle of pricey textbooks. Some schools give more attention than American colleges. At Oxford University, students have classes called “tutorials” where they are given one-on-one lessons with a tutor. Phoebe Peronto, fourth-year business administration and political science major, contests that British students study from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. People leave the library like a workday, eliminating the all-night study sessions. Unique to perhaps other semesters, scholarly passions follow a student outside of the classroom. Often the city harbours the inspiration for the curriculum. As an English major, I’ve poured over novels which felt ever more significant when I walked by Oscar
Wilde’s house or the chemist James Joyce describes in “Ulysses.” Art history major Mary Gianola, who researched Etruscan sculpture, lived in Rome and visited Pompeii to realize that a vital component to the study is being present to the form itself. So much of what students learn in college is book-based; there is something invaluable to connecting the intellectual world with a personal or visceral experience. Most importantly, school becomes the epicenter to meet friends and find new avenues of interest, which a person might never have discovered otherwise. While the world often seems vast, a network provides the comfort and accessibility in unknown territory. I would have never attended an Italian jam session in Amsterdam if it was not for my new Polish friend, Anna. Or I would have never gone to a Hunting Society Ball if it wasn’t for the boarding house I lived in. Unlike in the United States, a train ride or quick flight often lands you in a completely diverse culture and way of life. Travel provides the best “real life” lessons, such as thinking on your feet, budgeting and my personal favorite, adapting to new ways of socializing. Celebrations frame a culture at its highest. While there are so many pros to studying abroad, fun will be a predominant memory. The way you party in the U.S.A. might drastically change. It can be as simple as enjoying a long meal, drinking wine on the Pont des Arts or dancing to house music until 8 a.m. In Spain, students get accustomed to a new pace with afternoon siestas and clubbing that doesn’t start until the early morning. No matter the country, fun always translates and is never a point of contention.
The finite time to study abroad really lends itself to the “go big, then go home” attitude. Since there was a deadline to my time abroad, I couldn’t help but live it up every chance I got. To realize that some experiences are not forever reminds you to savor every moment. Often, studying abroad felt like a hiatus from normalcy. Life almost feels paused; your responsibilities back at home are on hold, giving you time to pursue new hobbies or have the freedom to just breathe and enjoy a new city. With only a small percent of American undergraduates studying abroad every year, it is difficult to avoid being identified by one’s nationality, an integral component to a personality or just a way to introduce yourself. Never have I been so conscious of my American citizenship. Living with people from all over the globe, save your homeland, conjures that self-awareness. Like looking in a mirror, befriending diverse characters only reinforces your own self-perception and allows you to see your culture more objectively. As well, learning a new language, or slang for that matter, juxtaposes how different people communicate but also how storytelling helps people bond. While studying abroad, there will be times when you know no one, are in a foreign city and posses the solitude for reflection. Perhaps it’s the perfect precursor to a final year in college or a turning point in life. But what’s most beneficial is finding a new home and standing on your own without certain familiarities. It’s an experience that affirms your confidence and lets you see yourself in a new light. Christine Deakers participated in the Education Abroad Program.

courts & crime
Berkeley resident sentenced for wire fraud By Anjuli Sastry | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org It turns out that even Mariah Carey’s reputation failed to prevent covering up a recent extortion scheme orchestrated by a Berkeley resident who scammed a New Jersey investor out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Antywan Ross, 44, former head of the music promoter company The RDA Group LLC, was sentenced by the United States District Court of New Jersey on June 6 to 21 months in federal prison on one count of wire fraud for sending false sponsorship letters and emails to pretend that he was holding a series of concerts in the Middle East featuring the “Heartbreaker” singer. Ross, a music industry promoter who touted fake business relationships with music stars such as Destiny’s Child and Ludacris, will also have three years of supervised release and will have to repay the $325,404 he extorted from J. Giovanni Baquerizo, who founded the Maywood, N.J., investment firm Alec Charles Capital LLC. A former Atlanta, Ga., resident who now resides in Berkeley, Ross founded The RDA Group LLC on Jan. 9, 2007. But the company was later dissolved by the Secretary of
the State of Georgia on Sept. 12, 2010, due to its inability to file for annual registration in accordance with Georgia law, according to state records. Although it was involved in dissolving The RDA Group LLC, the Office of the Secretary of the State of Georgia takes no responsibility for Ross’s actions and does not investigate cases or proceedings involving members of corporations filed with their office. “We simply receive the papers for corporations to form — we don’t get involved in disputes between members of corporations,” said Matthew Carrothers, a spokesperson for the Office of the Secretary of State of Georgia. “We don’t have statutory power to investigate allegations of fraud that a member of the corporation may have committed.” From around August 2008 to January 2009, Ross claimed to promote a series of Mariah Carey concerts taking place in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates. Through his efforts, he was able to secure roughly $330,000 in funds from Baquerizo, promising the money would be repaid with interest within 45 days, according to court documents. To further convince Baquerizo sponsorship money had been committed, in October 2008 Ross found an escrow agent in New York who
would not release the funds unless Ross provided proof of $1 million in sponsorship funds — which he later backed up with falsified letters written on law firm stationery that made it seem as if $10 million in sponsorship money was made available, court documents stated. When the funds were released from the escrow agent, instead of using the money to stage a legitimate concert, Ross bought a car and used the remainder of the money for personal benefit, according to the federal indictment. “(Ross) sent an email to the escrow agent directing her to release the investor’s money,” the indictment states. “Instead of using that money to pay for purported expenses related to putting on an international concert, Ross used the majority ... for his own benefit, including the purchase of an automobile. He also admitted that the Mariah Carey concerts in Dubai never took place and that he never repaid the investor.” Baquerizo did not respond to requests for comment. According to Rebekah Carmichael, spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Newark, N.J., Ross pleaded guilty to fraud on July 8, 2010, and was allowed to remain free on a $250,000 bond until his June 6 sentencing. Representatives from Ross’s family declined to comment.
heady: Professor remembered for hands-on teaching style in the field From Page 3 position at Texas A&M to take up an assistant position at Berkeley.” Among his many contributions, Heady became the treasurer and later the president of the Society for Range Management — which he helped found — in 1980. He also held the position of associate dean of student affairs for the College of Natural Resources. “He was quite an unusual person,” Bartolome said. “He was classically trained in botany, making him quite unlike others because of his broad knowledge on how to identify plants.” Heady was the author of over 100 publications, for which he received two Fulbright Scholarships and a Guggenheim Fellowship. His industrious nature contributed to his success in academic positions, as he went on to live in Africa, Australia and Saudi Arabia to conduct research. Recalling his experience with Heady, his son Kent Heady said Heady’s field work in Africa focused on the coexistence of wildlife with agriculture and that his father was “a big conservationist.” Heady carried out extensive research for his papers, making it
easier for current students — looking to address specific problems or projects — to find the hypothesis to their research question in his work, according to Bartolome. Four of his former students even went on to become deans in their respective fields. “Heady made sure his students went out to the field to see vegetation, as compared to staying in the laboratory,” Bartolome said. “A lot of it came from the fact that he grew up on a ranch in southern Idaho.” Even after retiring, Heady stayed in contact with his students and colleagues. He was living in La Grande in a retirement home and was active and in good health at the time of his death, according to Kent Heady. “He was a tough taskmaster with a very dry sense of humor that made him fun to be around,” Bartolome said. “Everyone who knew him will miss him.” Heady is survived by his son Kent Heady, his daughter Carol DeMaria, his wife Celia, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. The family plans on holding a ceremony in his memory this summer.

ANTA CLARA, Calif. — An eternity ago, Cal second baseman Tony Renda stood stone-faced, steps away from the auburn dirt of Evans Diamond. His team, 118 years of history be damned, would disappear in a few months, a victim of plummeting state budgets. Reporters and cameramen ringed around him, waiting. We’re going to Omaha, he told them. They were nice words but, back in September, still just words. Cal was ranked somewhere just inside or just outside the top 25, depending on who you asked. It hadn’t reached the College World Series since 1992, had never advanced past regionals since the field expanded to 64. These were things you said because, faced with overwhelming odds, you needed something to hang on to. A final stand in the face of erasure, a vindictive bite back at an administration the Bears felt had betrayed them. Who except the 40 men inside the clubhouse truly believed this could happen? But on Sunday night, it did. And this time, the Bears weren’t alone. Sometime in the fourth inning, an hour before the Cal dugout emptied in a fury of flailing limbs and flying caps, the stands came alive. Hands clapped together, voices rang out in unison. Cal-i-for-nia! Cal-i-for-nia! Cal-i-fornia! This was a sellout crowd like the Bears had never seen, its 1,431 members suddenly moving and shouting as one. There are no lights in Evans Diamond, so it couldn’t host any postseason contests. No matter —

After sweeping Dallas Baptist this past weekend, the Cal baseball team will head to Omaha, Neb. for its first College World Series appearance since 1992. By Katie Dowd | Senior Staff firstname.lastname@example.org SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Here are the dry logistics: On Sunday night, the Cal baseball team beat Dallas Baptist, 6-2, to advance to the College World Series. The game took two hours and 41 minutes. Erik Johnson was the winning pitcher for the Bears and catcher Chadd Krist hit a tworun home run. This will be the Bears’ first CWS appearance since 1992, and they will play the winner of Virginia and UC Irvine. Those are the things you need to know, but those are just words on a page and stats from the box score. This is what happened: The crowd at Stephen Schott Stadium, overflowing into the walkways and peering through the gaps in the outfield fence, leapt to its feet when Krist’s homer put Cal up, 2-0, in the bottom of the first and started to believe, right then and there, that
Quick LoOK E. JOHNSON: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 r, 4 k c. krist: 2-4, hr, 3 rbi maybe this was really happening. “I’m looking at the box score so I can believe it,” Bears coach David Esquer said. “It’s on paper.” The Cal bench — sporting their baseball caps backward in the first inning for a rally they did not, nor would ever, need — cheered its lungs raw for a new hero, Derek Campbell. The freshman came into the game hitting .227 and left it with three more hits, two more runs and one more day he will remember for the rest of his life. “Stay hot, Derek,” yelled one woman in the stands. He did, with veins running ice cold. On the mound, Johnson by no means had his best stuff. He fell behind batters early and walked four in six innings. When it was 4-2, Cal in the fourth, the contest by no means felt decided. But Johnson did enough and

he made pitches when it counted, like in the sixth when he struck out Kenny Hatcher to strand two runners on base. And that was all the Bears needed. Near the end of Johnson’s night, pitcher Justin Jones, his arm in a bright blue sling because of a bicep injury incurred the night before, greeted him in the dugout with an elaborate one-armed handshake as “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” played over the sound system. No mountain, indeed. The word “destiny” will be thrown around a lot in the coming week. Some believe in that, some don’t. But one way or another, Cal (37-21) proved that luck is a very real thing. They were lucky to draw a regional with Rice, a team they knew they could beat. They were lucky to survive lightning delays and injuries to Jones and Tony
Renda. On the field, they scored runs with luck, like when Booker and Renda bounced back-to-back singles over Hatcher at third who, on Sunday night, could never be tall enough to top the Bears. “It’s not only for us, but it’s for them, too — everyone who has ever been on the Golden Bear baseball team,” Krist said. But most of all, this moment was, as odd as it may sound, a product of countless hours of devotion, of love between the 36 players in blue and gold and the coaches and staff who stand behind him. “When people can see the affection that you have and the camaraderie that you have, you can do anything,” Esquer said. “Anything is possible with this group because of how they bonded together.” It was never more obvious than in that pile of electric yellow jerseys at the end of the game as one word reverberated over and over again in the dark night: Omaha.

SOFTBALL | Season Recap
Henderson shines in a breakthrough campaign for the Bears By Kelly Suckow | Staff email@example.com
Cal ace Jolene Henderson (right) had a marvelous sophomore campaign, posting 18 shutouts.
In the Cal softball team’s second practice, All-American pitcher and first baseman Valerie Arioto broke her leg — leaving a void in the circle, in the infield and at the plate. Coach Diane Ninemire turned to sophomore Jolene Henderson, who had split time with Arioto both on the rubber and on first last season. It’s safe to say Henderson was ready for the challenge. The Elk Grove, Calif. native stepped up as the ace and turned in a standout season, carrying the team to its first Women’s College World Series appearance in six years. With 18 shutouts on the year and an ERA under 1.00, the righty racked up a 40-10 record and emerged as one of the country’s most dominant pitchers. The workhorse put in over 333 innings, surpassing some of the other nationally-recognized pitchers by over a 100 innings.
“I think as a player, it just shows that I have a strong team behind me,” Henderson said. “If I didn’t have a strong team behind me, then that wouldn’t be the case.” And strength was what this year’s squad needed in response to Arioto’s absence. With no seniors, the young group was forced to grow up quickly and adjust to a shift in strategy this spring. After losing Arioto’s bat, the team saw its home run total take a hit — dropping from 51 in 2010 to 34 this year. Instead, the Bears tapped into the speed and consistency that players like left fielder Jamia Reid and shortstop Britt Vonk had to offer. Reid showed hot baserunning, tallying 31 stolen bases in 37 attempts, and Vonk paced the team with an impressive .415 average. “We lacked power this year,” third baseman Jace Williams said. “We found ways to win without a million home runs (by making) things happen for ourselves and (not relying) on the long ball. That was a strategy for us: get our speed on and hit them in ... It wasn’t the
flashy long ball that carried us this season, it was pitching and making things happen on the bases.” Cal found its winning ways in mid-April, after starting just 2-4 in conference play. From then on, the Bears reeled off 15 wins in 17 games, never dropping a series and finishing second in the Pac-10. The momentum spilled over into the postseason, where the No. 7-seed Bears swept their opponents in the Louisiville Regional. Cal (45-13) then showed major resilience against Kentucky in the Super Regionals. After getting battered during an 8-0 game two mercy loss, Henderson was lightsout in game three — blanking the Wildcats in a 9-0 victory to secure a ticket to Oklahoma City. The Bears fell short of their ultimate goal of reaching the national championship. Florida ended Cal’s postseason run for the third time in four years — leaving Henderson unsatisfied. “Every year I expect to be in the World Series,” Henderson said. “I expected it last year and it didn’t
