Cal football to be played at AT&T Park this season or 88 years, fans and students have been taking in Cal football home games at Memorial Stadium. They sit on the bleachers during a sunny-yet-chilly fall afternoon and can gaze at San Francisco from across the Bay. They’ll be looking at the Bay from a different angle this coming season. Memorial Stadium is currently undergoing extensive renovation and seismic retrofitting in order to make it a safer environment and improve the fan experience. Since the process takes a year and a half, the Cal football team’s five home games during the 2011 season will take place in San Francisco at AT&T Park, home of the Giants. The majestic beauty of Strawberry Canyon at sunset will be replaced by an afternoon by the Bay. Pregame celebrations on campus and at fraternity houses could be relocated to tailgating in parking lots and pep rallies along the piers. And Cal running backs bursting through the middle for a long score will be, well, slowed by the infield dirt? “It’s hard to adjust to it, but eventually we’re going to get used

bart protest

Cellphone decision incites rage By Weiru Fang | Staff At a public hearing Wednesday morning, several members of the Bay Area Rapid Transit Board of Directors deemed the agency’s decision to cut cellphone service two weeks ago during a protest a disproportionate response. The meeting, held in Oakland, was intended to discuss BART’s Aug. 11 decision to disrupt cellphone service during a protest. Since then, the group Anonymous has led two demonstrations denouncing BART’s actions, saying that the agency violated the First Amendment. At the hearing, protesters found a sympathetic ear in BART Director Lynette Sweet, who said she believes the protesters were motivated by the “right reasons.” “We should have let the BART board put a policy in place, and we should have talked it through,” Sweet said. Although it had no say in the decision, the board is ultimately held responsible. Moreover, Sweet said she agreed with

On a cloudy Monday morning, students flocked to Caltopia IX — the continuation of Cal Recreational Sports’ annual festival — where 30,000 guests enjoyed giveaways and games at the Recreational Sports Facility. But despite the lighthearted atmosphere of the event — which featured activities hosted by over 100 local and national sponsors and exhibitors — the budget problems haunting the university concerned some students. While some shared words of hope for the future, others said they were less confident in the university’s ability to bounce back from a slew of problems including a recent tuition increase and decreasing state funding. “I’m scared that people who don’t have the financial ability (to afford college) won’t have the opportunity to be in the same spot they could have,” said Song King, a UC Berkeley freshman from southern California. “One of the state’s main priorities should be education.” King said the fact that she was receiving in-state tuition made “a big difference” when choosing where to attend college. The annual in-state tuition and fees jumped to nearly $12,200 in July when the UC Board of Regents voted to approve a 9.6 percent fee hike in the face of a $650 million reduction in state funding. King, who is currently receiving financial aid from the campus, added

UCPD responds to three sexual battery incidents By Stephanie Baer | Senior Staff From the wee hours of Sunday morning up until Monday night, the UC Berkeley grounds and the area directly south of campus saw a combined total of three sexual battery crimes, two in which a student and parent were victimized.


Burden of rising fees looms over Caltopia IX

In each of the three cases, one suspect — who was positively identified by the victim — was arrested by responding UCPD officers within minutes of the sexual battery. The first incident occurred on campus at about 1:06 a.m. Sunday when a non-affiliated female was walking home through the Eucalyptus Grove, a site that has seen its share of sex crimes in the past year. While the victim was crossing the west bridge of

Grinnell Pathway, a man approached her and asked for directions, according to a UCPD crime alert. When she began to give him directions, the suspect grabbed her groin area and breasts. The victim then screamed and fled toward Oxford Street, where she flagged down a UCPD Security Patrol Officer who radioed the department with a description of the suspect. At around 1:18 a.m., UCPD officers spotted an individual who matched the description

Corrections The Aug. 18 article “BART service disrupted by protest� incorrectly stated that an Aug. 11 protest was organized by the group Anonymous. In fact, the protest was organized by No Justice No BART. Monday’s article “Bill aiming for transparency passes state Senate vote� incorrectly stated that ASUC Auxiliary Director Nadesan Permaul said the passage of SB 8 would have no impact on UC auxiliaries. In fact, he said it would not have an impact on the ASUC Auxiliary. The Daily Californian regrets the errors.

Dear Students:


elcome to a new academic year! Whether you are joining Berkeley as one of our 11,000 new students (expected fall and spring enrollment of 5600 freshmen, 2700 transfer students and 2950 graduate students) or our 25,000 returning students, the campus is eagerly anticipating your arrival. We are proud to welcome you to a campus that has once again just been named among the top ďŹ ve universities in the world in the Academic Ranking of World Universities. You are exceptionally talented, and each of you has earned a coveted place at Berkeley. You will ďŹ nd a rich intellectual, cultural, geographic, ethnic, gender, religious and socio-economic diversity among your classmates that makes studying at Berkeley such a dynamic learning experience. Our entering freshman class is drawn from every county in California, and 1700 of our new undergraduate students also come from outside of California. We have students from every state and from 74 countries around the world. I am pleased to note that 22 percent of our undergraduate students are ďŹ rst-generation college goers, and 36 percent come from families that earn $45,000 a year or less. You are our future leaders in the sciences, business, and the arts, and we will work hard to provide you with an educational experience both in and outside the classroom that is unique to Berkeley’s mission of teaching, research and public service. Whether in large lectures given by our distinguished faculty, in small faculty sessions or in discussion sections led by our brightest graduate student instructors, you will have the opportunity to engage in learning that we hope will transform your lives and prepare you to become engaged citizens and leaders in a rapidly changing global world. Public service is an important distinguishing feature of the student experience at Berkeley. The Cal Corps Public Service Center will connect you with the many campus programs that serve the community and provide service-learning opportunities. Last year we launched Cal Energy Corps, a pilot internship program that allows students to develop and deliver sustainable energy and climate solutions around the world. You are valued members of our university community, and we look forward to the energy and fresh ideas you bring. We hope that your time at Berkeley will be one of exciting intellectual discovery and striking personal accomplishments. We will do our best to make your education a richly rewarding experience. I wish you all a great fall semester.

off the beat

battery: Campus grove has seen many sexual battery incidents

Boats against the current

From Front


never know what to say when people ask me where I’m from. Usually, I just roll my eyes and say something to the effect of “it’s complicated,” but sometimes I take a deep breath and provide the full explanation. There may be an easier way to describe it — and perhaps I’m missing the entire point of the question — but for me, there really is only one way to spell it all out. That is because this concept of “where I’m from” is inextricably linked to this other concept of “home.” And I don’t really know any other way to explain that one. So here it is: until I was 5 years old, I lived in a Virginia suburb just outside Washington, D.C. This was the place where I spoke my first words, walked my first steps and formed my first memories. I can distinctly remember running door-todoor with my older cousin, showing off my Cruela DeVille impersonation to the neighbors and chasing fireflies in the sweltering summer heat with my friends. But my father, a Bay Area native, longed to return to the Golden State, and so in November 1997, we packed up the blue Expedition and drove across the country to our new house in Salinas, Calif. Steinbeck Country. Over the next 11 years my family spent there, I did most of my growing up. Learning to ride a bike and write in cursive, going through puberty, surviving middle school and experiencing the first half of high school all happened there. Most importantly, though, I think that small town taught me the most important lessons about people. I learned how it felt to have best friends and how it felt to lose them. And I grew kind of a thick skin. hen, a few months prior to the start of my junior year of high school, my parents sat my brother and me down on the couch in our living room and told us very gently that we would probably be moving to Bakersfield, Calif., because my mother had found a really nice job there. I immediately reacted with a firm and resounding “no.” I mean, have you seen the place? The triple-digit temperatures that plague the surprisingly large Central Valley town during the summertime were enough of a deterrent for my entire body to reject the concept of moving there like a transplant gone wrong. But my parents, knowing how I felt about my current situation, looked into my eyes and offered me a simple concession: public school. I started to listen at that point. You see, I’d been enrolled in private Catholic school since the fifth grade, with seventh grade and after


J.D. Morris being all-boys. There were plenty of reasons I had often fantasized about escaping those schools, but let’s just say we didn’t mesh very well. It was largely for that reason that by the time I drove away from the central coast breeze and into the stagnant, polluted airs of southwest Bakersfield, I had grown accustomed to the move and was actually looking forward to it. ow it may still surprise some of you to know that I ended up having a blast in Bakersfield. I spent most of my junior year living in a two-bedroom apartment with my mother while my father stayed in Salinas to wrap up his job there — and that part took some getting used to — but mostly I was just enamored with public school and all the people I met. Senior year proved to be especially interesting — I began to discover my love for journalism, I came out of the closet and my straight best friend moved into my house, where he still resides to this day. These days, though I’m in many ways living my dream in Berkeley, I do miss Bakersfield sometimes. I actually wish I had spent more time there. Yet I remain a forward-thinking person. F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “it is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.” So in all of this, please don’t get the impression that I am overcome with nostalgia or something. Each of these places in which I spent time — even Loch Sheldrake, N.Y., where I spent 18 weeks spread over five summers of camp — had something important to teach me about this maze of a world. I wouldn’t be who I am without having lived in each of these locations, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’d like to think that I made the most out of every place, and I will forever be mindful of my experiences therein as I continue to search for my own definition of “home.” After all, there’s no place like it.

two separate incidents of sexual battery and one incident of sexual assault that occurred within the same week — two of which occurred within the same hour. There were at least five cases of sex crimes in the grove in the spring and two during all of last fall semester. “I don’t know if I’d say it’s common, but it does happen there,” Decoulode said. In the second Sunday morning incident, a UC Berkeley parent was moving her son into the dorms at Unit 3 when a man approached her from behind. While she was standing on the sidewalk watching over her son’s property, the suspect came up to her and grabbed her between the legs over her clothing, according to Decoulode. The victim then struck the man with her purse and exchanged a few words with him as he fled, Decoulode said. When the suspect walked away, the victim flagged down a nearby UCPD Community Services Officer who radioed the department. While the responding UCPD officer was talking to the “very distraught” victim, the suspect walked across the street, and the victim pointed him out, Decoulode said. UCPD officers then detained 42-yearold Ruben Palate, according a UCPD crime alert. Berkeley police officers then arrived and took custody of the suspect. The third incident occurred Monday night at about 9 p.m. near the intersection of Durant Avenue and Bowditch Street. While walking down the 2600 block of Durant with two friends, a

19-year-old UC Berkeley student was approached by a man from behind and grabbed inappropriately, according to a UCPD crime alert. UCPD responded to the scene and detained an individual, who matched the description of the suspect, at the intersection of Bowditch and Haste Street — about two blocks

south of the site of the crime. The suspect, Torra Lewis, 49, was positively identified by the victim and taken into custody by BPD. None of the victims were injured during the encounters. Stephanie Baer is the city news editor.

Summer 2011 in Review Tuition increase After the already cash-strapped University of California received an unexpected additional cut of $150 million from the state, UC President Mark Yudof recommended a 9.6 percent increase in tuition for the fall semester. The UC Board of Regents approved the increase July 14, on top of an 8 percent increase approved only eight months before. The UC’s reduction in state funding for the next year totals to $650 million. For the fall 2011 semester, tuition and fees for students will soar to more than $12,000 — over $5,000 more than in 2008 — in order to make up for the additional cut.

ASUC Auxiliary Realignment Last school year, campus officials and members of the ASUC Auxiliary discussed changing the reporting structure of the auxiliary, which oversees the financial activities of the ASUC. The shift caused an uproar in the ASUC Senate, which united in a strongly worded opposition to the realignment, stating that the process was a “breach of our trust” and that the relationship between the ASUC and the campus was “tarnished.” Campus officials responded by saying that the changes will take months to complete and that student government leaders have been and will continue to be included in the process.

DREAM Act passage After months of discussion California’s Legislature, Gov. Jerry Brown signed one part of the state’s DREAM Act into law July 25. AB 130 will allow the UC, California State University and California Community Colleges to provide financial aid to undocumented students from their aid reserves. AB 130 passed the state Senate and Assembly with majority support. The bill’s counterpart, AB 131, which would allow undocumented students at state universities to be eligible for state aid such as Cal Grants, remains suspended in the state Senate.

Redistricting In an effort to gain stronger student representation on the Berkeley City Council, UC Berkeley students advocated for the establishment of a student supermajority district and a student council member. After weeks of lobbying, council members voted to push back the original Sept. 16 deadline to Sept. 30 to allow enough time for students to reorganize and draft a proposal and still meet the county’s deadline for having new districts in place by the November 2012 election.

Hikers sentencing Two UC Berkeley alumni who have been detained in Iran for over two years were sentenced to eight years in prison this month. The case of Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal and Bauer’s fiancee Sarah Shourd has garnered international attention. The three were seized while hiking along the Iran-Iraq border in 2009. All were accused of spying and illegally entering the country — charges on which Bauer and Fattal were convicted. After over a year of detention, Shourd was released last September for health reasons. Bauer and Fattal have less than 20 days to appeal the decision. — Allie Bidwell


Berkeley grocery chain ownership set to change due to bankruptcy filing By Victoria Pardini | Staff

Check Online

Andronico’s Community Markets filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday after accruing debt from lost revenue in expanding the chain to other locations. The family-owned grocery chain listed between $10 million and $50 million in debt and around the same amount in assets, according to papers filed at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Oakland. The company, which operates four markets in Berkeley and single stores in Los Altos, San Anselmo and San Francisco, is negotiating a sale with Renovo Capital that will go through a due diligence period of between 60 and 90 days for the two companies to set the sale price. As a result of the sale, consumers will experience “improvements” in the short term — including betterstocked shelves and maintenance for facilities — according to Andronico’s spokesperson Adam Alberti. The company is not currently planning to

close any of its stores, and no employees will be laid off. “The purpose of the Chapter 11 filing is to affect the sale, and the sale is required essentially because the company’s debt load is too high to continue into operations,” Alberti said. In addition to lost revenue from expansion, an article by the San Francisco Chronicle mentioned that suppliers were not getting paid for their goods by the company. In response to the article, CEO Bill Andronico said in a May email to the Chronicle that the company would be looking to recapitalize in order to replace the its existing lending group. At the store located at 2655 Telegraph Ave., shoppers were surprised to hear that the company had filed for bankruptcy, while mentioning that the chain often sells products at a much higher cost than other markets. Berkeley resident Debra Ratner said she normally shops at Andronico’s because of its close proximity to her

Popular websites’ use of ‘supercookies’ raises online privacy issues By Anjuli Sastry | Staff

Check Online

The age-old Internet security advice for kids has always been to never release their phone numbers on the Web. But in an age in which Google and Facebook request phone numbers for increased security, recent studies by UC Berkeley and Stanford University found that Web users are still at risk as popular websites are able to recover browser history immediately after users visit the site. Websites like Hulu and MSN have utilized new technologies known as “supercookies,” — designed to undo or bypass consumers’ preferences to keep their information private — allowing the sites to access users’ browser history even after they have cleared their browser. This usage of supercookies can lead to third-party tracking and behavioral advertising, and according to an email from Chris Hoofnagle, a UC Berkeley lecturer in residence and lead on the UC Berkeley study, the supercookies use tricks to make users think they are not being monitored while still tracking them across the Internet. “Imagine that your RA wanted to monitor your behavior in the dorm, so your RA installed large windows in your room in order to watch over you,” Hoofnagle said in the email. “The RA also tells you that you have the right to opt out of this monitoring. You opt out, but instead of installing blinds, the RA installs a one-way mirror.” UC Berkeley published an online study on July 29 about online privacy, and Stanford released a separate, informal study, called the Do Not Track project, to the Federal Trade Commission regarding its research. But Hoofnagle said both universities’ work is complementary and part of the same National Science Foundation group looking at secure computing. According to Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford graduate student in com-

puter science and leader of the Stanford project, his team began working on the project in March 2011 when they realized that so-called credible supercookie technologies were actually not protecting people on the Web. “If you don’t want to be tracked, you should be able to check a box that does this,” Mayer said. Mayer also said that some supercookie technologies should only be used to prevent online fraud and that it is objectionable to be “supercookied” every time a user tries to partake in an action — like opening a credit card — on the Internet. “We need to be giving users choices based on online tracking, private browsing modes and making sure they don’t leave things behind on the computer,” Mayer said. One of the websites that was mentioned in both the UC Berkeley and Stanford studies and is currently involved in litigation regarding online privacy is the popular video site Hulu, which can regenerate Web activity between browsers. Representatives from Hulu declined to comment when contacted but did write a blog post on Aug. 5 on their website about the issue of online privacy, which states, “Upon reading the research report, we acted immediately to investigate and address the issues identified. This included suspending our use of the services of the outside vendor mentioned in the study.” Ashkan Soltani, an independent online privacy researcher and security consultant who collaborated on both studies, said that the problem is that websites circumvent users’ anonymous choices. “It highlights the technology arms race that consumers are engaged in,” Soltani said. “It’s this game of privacy Whac-A-Mole where you block one way but there’s another way to get someone’s information.”

protest: BART will not rule out using similar plans in the future recommendations made by the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California, which has written to the directors saying phone services should not be interfered with, except in the most extraordinary circumstances. “Do we want to have a society where the government is in a position to shut down a communications network used by thousands ... simply because a few of those people are using it for a particular purpose?” Michael Risher, the ACLU’s staff attorney, said at the hearing. However, BART board of directors


mended having a plan to address what an appropriate response to a crisis would be. Although BART currently has no such system, a draft is expected next month, according to BART spokesperson Jim Allison. Still, shutting off cellphone service is still an option for future protests, Allison said. Though the legality of BART’s Aug. 11 actions has come under question by the Federal Communications Commission, no formal investigation has been undertaken.

During Monday’s BART protest in San Francisco, two UC Berkeley alumni were detained by police and released after approximately 30 minutes. Josh Wolf and Helene Goupil, graduates of the campus’s Graduate School of Journalism, were among a group Josh of approximately Wolf 40 protesters detained by the San Francisco Police Department along the wall of the city’s Main Library. Wolf and Goupil were covering a demonstration, organized by the Helene group AnonyGoupil mous, against BART’s Aug. 11 decision to block wireless signals on several BART platforms in order to disrupt a planned protest. According to Goupil, she was following protesters as they walked toward city hall when they suddenly shifted and started walking toward her. Goupil said she tried to get out of the protesters’ way by moving toward the Main Library, but police circled the

group and told them they were under arrest. Wolf was also in this group, she said. The encirclement occurred around 8:20 p.m. between Grove and Fulton streets in downtown San Francisco, according to Wolf. Goupil — who was covering the protest for Mission Loc@l, a news outlet run through UC Berkeley — said she told police officers that she was a member of the press but did not have an actual press pass. Goupil said she was detained and sat on the floor near the wall of the library for approximately 30 minutes. According to Goupil and Wolf, the two were eventually released when officers verified them as members of the press. Albie Esparza, an SFPD spokesperson, said the incident began when a horde of people were blocking Market Street near the Main Library. When the group of people blocking the street caused a “severe traffic congestion,” SFPD officers gave multiple orders to disperse, Esparza said. When the group did not scatter following repeated dispersal orders, SFPD officers encircled the group and detained and subsequently arrested about 40 people, Esparza said. “We wanted to facilitate the First Amendment right to protest, but we also have to do our job to conduct traffic control and prevent motorists from having any flare up with protesters,” Esparza said.

Berkeley man found with Bancroft Library to get new director meth, now facing charges By Alisha Azevedo| Staff

By Sarah Burns | Staff A Berkeley man was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of illegal drug possession after allegedly pulling a bag filled with 2.6 grams of methamphetamines out of his shirt pocket and handing it to a police officer in the city of American Canyon. At about 1:40 a.m., Berkeley resident Christopher Salerno, 46, was arrested by an American Canyon police officer and taken to the Napa County Jail facility where he was booked on one felony charge of controlled substance possession and one misdemeanor charge of drug paraphernalia possession, according to American Canyon Police Department Sgt. Mike Collins. Collins said an officer noticed Salerno’s truck parked at a pull-out on American Canyon Road near Interstate 80 and, after speaking with Sal-

erno, noticed that his pupils displayed signs of drug use. After the officer asked Salerno to open the door of the vehicle to better facilitate his view, the officer observed a methamphetamine pipe on the floor of the truck. Collins said the officer then asked Salerno to exit the truck and requested to check him for contraband. Collins said Salerno admitted to having methamphetamines and handed the officer a Ziploc bag containing the drugs out of his shirt pocket. According to Karen Ortega, an office assistant at the Napa County Department of Corrections, Salerno is no longer in custody at the Napa County jail. The arrest comes three months after a major drug incident in which a Berkeley resident was taken into federal custody for possession of over five pounds of methamphetamines. American Canyon is located in southern Napa County, roughly 30 miles north of Berkeley.

A current UC Berkeley professor will become the new director of the Bancroft Library starting in September, the campus announced Monday. Elaine Tennant — a professor specializing in the medieval and early modern periods in the German and Scandinavian departments — will Elaine be the first woman Tennant to fill the position of James D. Hart Director of the library in its history. A search committee composed of faculty and library professionals determined Tennant to be the best choice for the position, according to Tom

Leonard, the university librarian. Tennant’s plans as director for the library include several new initiatives, such as creating new courses that would incorporate the library’s resources more extensively and establishing internships for graduate students to assist curators and learn about the inner workings of the library. “She will be a splendid director in part because no one I can think of took a greater interest in the Bancroft as a faculty member,” said William B. Taylor, professor emeritus of history, in an email. “She has always had students very much in mind.” Tennant has been a faculty member since 1977 and will replace Charles Faulhaber, a professor emeritus of Spanish and Portuguese who vacated the position earlier this summer. The 151-year-old library — which underwent a three-year, $64 million seismic retrofit and reconstruction that concluded in 2009 — houses a

wide range of historical collections and artifacts, including the Mark Twain Papers and Project and the Free Speech Movement Archive. Tennant also hopes to work with the School of Information and other areas of campus to discuss the differences between those who primarily use library print resources for research and those well-versed in digital resources. Leonard said in an email that digital preservation of collections will be a challenge. Additionally, he said the archive should be molded into “a window into how our present culture took shape.” “Tennant has an enthusiasm for research with a hands-on approach to historical records; she easily communicates this winning attitude,” he said in the email. “The Director of the Bancroft is in the inspiration business, offering insights to anyone who tackles (its) great collections.” Alisha Azevedo is the lead academics and administration reporter.

They just closed one in Palo Alto, where I’m from, but now it’s like all making sense to me as to why they closed it.” According to Alberti, Bill Andronico will continue as the CEO of the com-

that, although the campus did a good job of updating students concerning the budget situation and fee increases, she feared such communication would not be enough to prevent students with less financial stability from being severely affected by the rising cost of education. Catherine Huffman, a junior transfer student from UC Santa Cruz, said the future looks bleak if the university’s budget problems continue, adding that the increasing fees were a bad sign for students taking out loans to pay for education. “I think it’s just going to get worse,” Huffman said. “How are we supposed to graduate with that much debt?” Regardless of the gloomy financial

forecast, King said she was not immediately worried about the UC’s future. “So far, Caltopia is pretty awesome ... I love all the school spirit. Cal seems to do a lot of stuff where they bring people together,” she said. Huffman, who worked at both UC Berkeley’s and UC Santa Cruz’s call centers, said that, even in the face of troubling economic times, she believes the Berkeley campus can consistently expect strong private support from alumni to mitigate the effects of the budget cuts. At a press conference on Monday, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau said the campus’s ability to acquire private support was a sign of the importance of the university in

the public eye. “Berkeley is number one in the country, actually ahead of MIT and Princeton, in private fundraising,” Birgeneau said. “This is a significant achievement, and it shows individuals in California of means are willing to step up to make sure that they do have a great university to support.” Brittany Roberts, a freshman from Italy, said the campus’s excellence and international reputation have not declined. “Everyone congratulates me,” Roberts said. “Everyone (in Italy) knew what it was.” UC Berkeley was ranked the eighth-best university in the world by Times Higher Education.

Why Should the U.S. Fund the Terrorist Group Hamas? Congress now sends nearly a billion tax dollars annually to the Hamaslinked Palestinian Authority: Is this a smart use of U.S. foreign aid? The Palestinian Authority’s ruling party Fatah recently announced it has “reconciled” with the Islamic terror group Hamas to form a unity government. The Palestinian Authority currently receives some $600 million in direct annual U.S. aid, plus an additional $225 million in annual U.S. funding through the United Nations. Since it is against U.S. law to fund terrorist organizations, the U.S. Congress should immediately stop the flow of American tax dollars to the Palestinian Authority.

This year, things are turning around in more ways than one. The Cal Bears will be playing at a smaller, more inconvenient location as the renovations to Memorial Stadium continue to progress. State funding cuts to the University of California currently total $650 million for this year, with more potentially on the way. As UC Berkeley continues to absorb these cuts, our own Operational Excellence initiative, aimed at cutting costs and streamlining efficiencies, is beginning the process of implementing its proposals.

TEAM: Despite a smaller home stadium in San Francisco, student tickets have yet to sell out said Isi Sofele, the Bears’ starting running back. “It’s going to be hard to adjust to, but we’ll get there.” Changes for the 2011 season are far-ranging for Cal From football nation — the move to San Francisco will affect everyone from fans to linebackers, alumni to students. front The Gameday experience will be different, to say the least. For students, it will probably be rather inconvenient. But playing home games somewhere other than Memorial Stadium — for the first time since 1922, when the stadium was still being constructed — could be a positive, according to Matt Terwilliger, associate athletic director for business improvement. “We look at it as a unique experience to experience Cal football in a new and unique setting,” Terwilliger said. “The idea was to provide fans with (the) best experience possible.” Included with students’ season tickets are five BART vouchers, allowing for free transportation into the city for the games. The UC Berkeley Department of Intercollegiate Athletics sent out a survey to students with season tickets, asking them the most convenient mode of transportation. Terwilliger said that BART came out the winner, as it allows maximum flexibility for

students. They can stay in the city after the game and are likely already familiar with the transit system. Before the game, Cal athletics will host a pregame tailgate party. Located at Pier 48, it will begin three hours before the game and attempt to replicate the FunZone at Maxwell Family Field of previous years. When fans actually enter the ballpark, they will notice a size difference. AT&T Park, at roughly 42,000 seats, has a significantly smaller capacity than Memorial Stadium, which had about 72,000 seats. Despite the disparity, student tickets have not sold out, though Terwilliger said that should change now that students are back on campus. “I just hope the students are excited about it,” he said. “We’re pretty excited to have the students over there.” With all the hullabaloo over student transportation and pregame, the games themselves shan’t be forgotten. Not all football fields are alike, especially ones that are primarily used for baseball, like AT&T, and therefore have infield dirt. The squad has held practices on fields with baseball diamonds, but it will take

some getting used to. “It’s kind of weird because (your) cleats don’t really sink in, so you have to really practice on that,” said freshman defensive lineman Viliami Moala. “You have to practice on keeping your gravity centered ... It feels weird — that’s why we have to practice in it.” Aside from the infield, AT&T Park is simply not the squad’s home. Players are likely more comfortable on their own field, in their own stadium, at their own campus. Many, especially the seniors, will miss playing games at Memorial Stadium. “It is kind of weird, and it’s kind of sad, but I have a season to play, and I don’t have time to think about that,” said senior linebacker Mychal Kendricks of the location of his final season’s home games. “You gotta make the best out of what we have ... It’s a positive thing. It’s a good thing. I’m excited. I’m playing at AT&T,” He’s played there before. The last time the Bears played at AT&T Park was against Miami in the 2008 Emerald Bowl. Cal won, 24-17 — an indication, perhaps, of how this season will fare for Bears of all shapes and sizes. Jonathan Kuperberg is the sports editor.


berkeley lab’s second campus quest

claire perlman » senior staff «

Six sites have made their cases, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory now just has to choose which is most qualified to be home to its second campus. In January, the lab — set in the hills directly above the UC Berkeley campus — announced a need for a second campus. Not only are 20 percent of the lab’s facilities located off-site in Emeryville, Berkeley and Walnut Creek, but the lab is growing at a rate that the 200-acre main campus can no longer accommodate. Out of the more than 20 sites in the Bay Area that submitted proposals, the lab has narrowed the possibilities down to six — Alameda Point, Berkeley Aquatic Park West in West Berkeley, Brooklyn Basin in Oakland, properties already occupied by the lab in Emeryville and Berkeley, Golden Gate Fields and Richmond Field Station, which is already owned by the University of California and was the paradigm for a second campus, according

to lab officials. With their announcement of the need for a new campus, Berkeley Lab released a Request for Qualifications, which detailed the 17 requirements a site for a second campus would ideally fulfill, including aesthetic factors such as a “beautiful environment,” and factors like distance from sources of vibration that could interfere with the delicate science that occurs within the lab. This summer, the public has heard from all six. The economic benefits from the construction and maintenance of a 2 million-square-foot second campus for the chosen host city has created intense competition for the bid.

After hearing proposals from six finalist sites, the lab will make a decision by November

Alameda Point has offered the lab the land for the second campus at no cost, and Alameda Point and Richmond have engaged in advertising campaigns to demonstrate the communities’ support for their respective sites. Richmond has put up a billboard on I-80, and Alameda Point is encouraging residents to display signs in their windows and on their lawns to show their support. Officials in Alameda Point said that if chosen, the new campus would be located at a former naval base, which the city would use $20,000 of its own funds to transform. The University of California already owns the Richmond Field Station, and it meets many of the

requirements, so for this reason, the lab is comparing all the other sites to it as they make their decision. Only one of the sites — Aquatic Park West — is located completely in Berkeley, making it the closest to the original campus. The view of the water, which would meet the aesthetic requirement for the site, was among the amenities espoused at the public meeting. With the last of the meetings on Aug. 8, Berkeley Lab is in decision mode. Lab officials have said they hope to decide on a preferred site by November, and occupancy is scheduled for 2016. Claire Perlman is the assistant university news editor.

Trigger cuts may be in store for UC soon

A back to school Q&A with campus Chancellor

Robert Birgeneau UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost George Breslauer and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Harry Le Grande met with reporters from The Daily Californian and other media outlets to discuss the major issues the campus will be facing this school year. Among the issues discussed were

the continually decreasing amount in state funding, the possibility of further midyear cuts to the UC, the state of fundraising and donations to support the campus and student financial aid, the continued battle to secure prestigious faculty members and Birgeneau’s opinions on differential tuition throughout the UC. – Alisha Azevedo & Allie Bidwell





ell, basically we’re going to have to. We’re not going to have a choice, but that just means the $60 million deficit is going to be increased beyond that. And so we will be able to bridge probably until next year. But at the end, we’re going to have to work hard to find new sources of income ... Obviously, student tuition will go up. We don’t control that — the regents control that. Frankly, I believe it’s time for corporate California to step up and start supporting students directly.

think ultimately we’re moving towards a situation where the financial models of the different campuses are so different that having identical tuition at every campus doesn’t make sense. I think differential tuition is inevitable because of the difference in the financial models. My own view in the near term, however, is that tuition has gone up so much that I don’t think any campus would want to have tuition increases that are beyond what are already being specified by the regents.

faculty retention


here is very, very rigorous merit review every three years. So having had so many years without a cost-of-living increase for our faculty, added on to the increase in pension contributions, added on to the fact that their salaries already lie significantly behind our competitors and added on to the fact that our competitors are just hovering at all times, each year we’re dealing with 80 to 100 faculty retention cases. We had in 2010-11 49 new cases, but then we were also dealing with the overhang from the previous year’s cases that had not been resolved. So this competitive context really shapes so much of what we have to do to keep the best faculty and try to recruit the best faculty.

fundraising & donations


f you ... look at universities that don’t have medical schools, Berkeley is number one in the country, actually ahead of MIT and Princeton, in private fundraising. This is a significant achievement, and it shows individuals in California of means are willing to step up to make sure that they do have a great university to support. Funding has been directed towards building, but a lot of it has been directed towards people, undergraduate students and graduate students. To complete the campaign we need to raise another $800 million, which we are hoping to do in the next two and a half years.





Already battered by state funding cuts that have caused a fee increase and program reductions at all 10 of its campuses, the UC could be forced to absorb an additional $100 million in cuts if state revenues continue to lag into the new year. Under the current state budget designed by Gov. Jerry Brown and state legislators, funding levels for all sectors of public higher education are pinned to revenue collection targets, which encompass a variety of taxes and fees. If these goals are not met, the University of California, California State University and California Community Colleges could be cut an extra $100 million, $100 million and $102 million, respectively, taking the total cuts doled out this year by the state government to $750 million for the UC alone and over $2 billion across the public higher education system. The additional cuts would occur in the middle of the systems’ academic and fiscal years. UC administrators have expressed fear about this scenario throughout this year’s budgeting process due to the relative difficulty of re-crafting a budget mid-year — a fear that they could be forced to confront because of the state budget’s structure. Weary from almost six months of negotiating over a new state budget, the state government’s leadership decided to plug the final $4 billion of the state budget gap with increased revenue collection estimations and by

assuming the state would collect that revenue without a hitch. This faith in the state economy was in part based on the state’s May and June revenue collection figures, which exceeded the estimates included in the state budget. But an analysis of data from the state Controller’s Office conducted by the Daily Californian shows this collection to be wildly erratic from month to month. In the months leading up to the June 29 signing of the budget, revenue collection fluctuated from 19.4 percent above estimates to 5.8 percent below, with no pattern to the jumps. The trend of unpredictability continued into last month, when state revenue collection dropped 10.8 percent — or $538.8 million — below the expected amount, according to an Aug. 9 statement from the state Controller’s Office. Alarm bells sounded across the state. CSU Chancellor Charles Reed and community college Chancellor Jack Scott conducted a joint press conference Monday to demonstrate their institutions’ dire straits while state Controller Jon Chiang also addressed the potential for further crisis. “While we hope for better news in the months ahead, every drop in revenues puts us closer to the drastic trigger cuts that could be imposed next year,” Chiang said in the statement. If the trigger cuts are enacted and the university is cut the additional $100 million, the UC Board of Regents could approve yet another tuition increase. At its July meeting, the board discussed a 5.9 percent hike as a response to the trigger cuts — and that on top of the 9.6 percent rise already in place for the current academic year. Jordan Bach-Lombardo is the university news editor.

past year has never lined up with the estimates made in the state budget. but the may and june collection cycles — where collection exceeded estimations — were pointed to as signs that the state could reliably plug $4 billion of its budget gap with state revenue.

think in the long run, our target is 20 percent outof-state and international students. And I think once we get there, we’ll have to find some kind of equilibrium, and it’s been quite challenging. And I think at that stage I — or whoever is on the leadership team at that point — will talk again about it ... as long as we’re meeting our obligations to Californians, I think it enriches the education environment for everyone to have a reasonable number of out-of-state and international students.

THE STUDENT PLURALITY karinina cruz » staff «

With the Sept. 30 deadline approaching, several ASUC officials who lead the push for the creation of a student super-majority city council district in Berkeley are continuing to develop their redistricting proposal while gathering and incorporating student input. In July, the city began accepting redistricting proposals — following the March release of the 2010 census data, which shows a 9 percent increase from the city’s population count of 102,743 in the year 2000 to a new total of 112,580 — for the purpose of rearranging the electoral district boundaries to preserve equal population distribution among its eight districts. While students comprise a significant percentage of the total population, they are spread among four districts in the city without having a student representative sit on the Berkeley City Council. “When you talk about redistricting on a national and state level, they always talk about putting a minority community together,” said Kristin Hunziker, a former UC Berkeley student who has been working with several ASUC officials on their campaign for a student-majority district. “They are very split up in Berkeley into four districts. By common sense and political progressive standards, they should be put together in few districts.” ASUC Senator Shahryar Abbasi said that though students represent a significant portion of the city’s population, their voices have been spread out and consequently have been disenfranchised. “I‘ve heard from a few residents,


Some in the ASUC are trying to create a student supermajority City Council district and I’ve talked to a few — I would say there is some ambivalence about having a student-majority district,” said Councilmember Gordon Wozniak. “Students tend to be different from the rest of the population, but they also have common interests like public safety, service projects and transits. They deserve to be considered for representation.” Over the summer, the city council extended the deadline to Sept. 30 — which was already extended from its original deadline of Aug. 19 to Sept. 16 — after ASUC External Affairs Vice President Joey Freeman requested to move the date to November in order to make time for students who were away during the summer. Though the November deadline was rejected, there are some who believe that an earlier deadline would allow sufficient time to engage with students and draft a proposal. “There will be plenty of time for students to engage in the process and plenty of time to take part in what the final decision will look like,” said ASUC Senator Andrew Albright, mentioning that the city will still hold public hearings and discussions regarding the redistricting process. In addition, a group called Maximum Participation Minimum Deviation — which is composed of college and high school students — submitted a proposal within a week following the city’s release of redistricting proposal applications. However, their proposal solely focused on the redistricting process rather than the creation of a student-majority district. According to Freeman, they are on

track to submit a proposal by Sept. 30 but will not be completely finished until they gather all student input by holding several informational events and workshops as students return for the start of the fall semester. “We want to put together a plan that has student interest and suggestions,” he said. “We’re at the stage where we have been looking at maps, data and potential area on what (the district) would look like.” In order for the city council to accept a proposal, it has to adhere to the city charter, which states that an elected council member cannot be ousted due to a change in boundaries, districts need to be of equal size and proposals are required to stay as close as possible to the 1986 district boundaries — a criteria that was not met by ASUC officials in 2001. Freeman said that they are still uncertain if the final proposal that they will submit will be charter compliant. However, if it violates the charter, then the group’s next step would be voting for a charter amendment November 2012. “I strongly support to increase influence of students on the city government through the redistricting process and to be represented in elected and appointed seats (so they can) have a direct role in issues that affect their daily lives,” said Councilmember Jesse Arreguin. “Whether that may be a student district, I have yet to form an opinion on that. I’m just waiting to see what the ASUC puts forward before making a decision.” Karinina Cruz covers city government.

This fall, a few faculty members will teach a freshman seminar that focuses on the priorities of UC Berkeley, specifically with regard to how much the campus should emphasize subsidizing its Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. These three faculty members created this seminar brian from their concern barsky that the Intercollegiate Athletics program continues to cost the university millions of dollars annually, said Brian Barsky, a creator of the seminar. According to Barsky, the intercollegiate athletics program at UC Berkeley was originally set up to be self-supporting, just like student housing, meaning that it must generate whatever money it spends and that the campus should not provide funds to enable the program to spend beyond the amount that it generates. “However, the program continues to use campus funds, having cost the campus $78 million from 2003-2010 ... while at the same time paying multi-million dollar coaching compensation,” Barsky said. The course is listed in the computer science division of the electrical engineering and computer sciences department. Barsky will teach the seminar with two other campus professors — Margaretta Lovell, a history of art professor, and Laura Nader, an anthropology professor — but will also invite many guest speakers. While the course will examine the use

of university funds in the Intercollegiate Athletics program, it will also use the program as a more general platform to determine thepriorities of the university as a whole, according to Barsky. “This transcends the issue of examining how intercollegiate athletics affects the university’s core mission,” Barsky said. “ We will examine the broader question of what is the purpose of the university, especially what is the role of a public university that functions at an elite academic level.” Barsky said the course will include prominent guest speakers, both local and from across the country, including a former NFL player, a former former sports marketing executive, book authors, former university administrators, and a professor of sports management. Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Sandy Barboursaid she received an invitation from Barsky to be a guest speaker for the seminar and said she hopes to speak in the seminar. “I welcome this examination, and it is a fascinating topic that is worth discussion,” Barbour said. Barbour said that she just hopes that all perspectives on this issue will be taken in account. “I hope that they will explore a broad array of stakeholders from different perspectives,” Barbour said. “My hope is that the class will explore a pretty broad meaning of what contribution to the university’s core mission can mean.” Barsky said students will be taught to include varying perspectives and he hopes that they will apply this investigative method to other issues in the world. “I am hoping that the class will inspire the students to not merely accept the status quo but rather to think from first principles about how something should be rather than just learn about how it actually is,” Barsky said. “That is the kind of education we wish to impart to the students at Berkeley.”

public safety departments to join regional communication system The city of Berkeley and UC Berkeley have entered into contracts to migrate their public safety radio networks onto a regional system by 2013, a move that is expected to facilitate better communication with other cities and organizations around the East Bay. The migration to the regional network was prompted in part by a Federal Communications Commission mandate that requires all nonfederal public safety radio communication to operate on narrowband channels ­­— meaning those with a bandwidth that does not exceed 12.5 kilohertz — by Jan. 1, 2013, in an effort to promote greater efficiency in radio channels and thus support additional channels and more users. Per recommendation from the city manager’s office, the Berkeley City Council voted July 19 to join the East Bay Regional Communications System Authority rather than a radio communications service currently being developed by Oakland. Berkeley’s city manager report determined the regional system to be the more cost-effective and conducive to interoperability — meaning the ability for staff from different jurisdictions and agencies to communicate with one another.

Local police departments will join the East Bay Regional Communications System Authority.

According to the recommendation from the city manager’s office, the East Bay system will allow this kind of regional communication for personnel

differences in their systems. The city will migrate police, fire and mental health radio communications onto the regional system. So far, on the campus side, only UCPD has been confirmed to migrate radio networking onto the authority. The authority currently has 38 member agencies including Alameda County and Contra Costa County, over 20 cities and towns around the East Bay, four special districts and the California Department of Transportation. UCPD Lt. Marc DeCoulode said the regional nature of the East Bay system will be especially helpful when dealing with mutual aid between police departments and in large-scale disaster response. The plan outlined by the city manager also estimates the first year costs of the city’s entrance into the system, including up front procurement and implementation costs of necessary radio equipment at about $2.6 million. That figure also factors in an annual $280,000 operating fee charged by the authority, which the plan intends to cover with

current UCPD radio equipment is

“well past its normal life expectancy� from different organizations across the authority, all while using their own equipment. Without the regional system, separate jurisdictions could encounter problems when trying to communicate over the radio with outside agencies because of

They huddled under the awning outside the swim center, some clutching half-empty bottles of shampoo, others, half-empty bottles of liquor. They were the homeless of Berkeley, waiting outside the closed pool at Willard Middle School to take their Saturday morning showers. The city has run a daily shower program at Willard Pool for the homeless for over 10 years. Participants receive a towel and liquid soap â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for most, hot water is the draw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about hygiene,â&#x20AC;? said a local who identified himself as Will. He has been homeless in Berkeley for 17 years and said he uses the shower services daily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But a hot shower? No one can say you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel better after walking out of that shower. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a happy American.â&#x20AC;? The shower program operates from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on weekends. The hours have not changed since Willard Pool closed last summer after a June 2010 ballot measure â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which would have raised $22.5 million in bonds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; failed. If it had passed, the measure would have allocated money to retrofit Willard and the pool at West Campus Junior High School, replace the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm water pool and construct an all-purpose pool at Martin Luther King Jr., Middle School. The pool has since been filled with dirt, though Berkeley City Councilmember Kriss Worthington â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whose district includes the Willard neighborhood and who helped start the shower program in the late 1990s

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said there are plans to work to reopen Willard in the future. The city currently operates three public pools, one of which â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the warm water pool located on the Berkeley High School campus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will close in December. Worthington added that city council members all agreed the shower program should continue despite the closure of the pool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I strenuously argued that even if the pool was closed, we should still keep the shower program,â&#x20AC;? Worthington said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city council all agreed to keeping the program open in spite of the fact that the pool was closing.â&#x20AC;? Few other options Many of Berkeleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless have access to showers at menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelters, but space is limited. Those left to sleep in the streets have few other options, Worthington said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the issues thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recurring when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to provide services to homeless people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they need a place to sleep, some need a shower or clothing if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get out and look for a job or going to an educational program,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They need to be able to make themselves presentable ... If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying at the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelters, you can take a shower there. This is for people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a shelter bed.â&#x20AC;? According to the findings in EveryOne Homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Alameda Countywide Homeless Count and Survey Report, 53 percent of the 2,212 homeless individuals in Alameda County are unsheltered. EveryOne Home is a non-profit organization that works to end homelessness in the county.

Program attendant Asmerom Kidane, who has worked at Willard for over eight years, said the common misconception about the homeless in Berkeley is that none of them work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people here who have jobs and are just homeless â&#x20AC;&#x201D; others have cars and just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford rent. Some canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay their water bills,â&#x20AC;? he said. Exceeding expectations Kidane and Cierra Moses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two of six attendants who rotate shifts at Willard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sat at a table tallying the number of people who entered the building. They walked through the locker room to ensure that everything was running smoothly and offered greetings to their regular attendees. Twenty-five minutes into the hourlong shower period, only two towels were left. Many proceeded to bathe without towels. According to city spokesperson Mary Kay Clunies-Ross, the city contracts the towel service to a private company. The allocation is limited to 20 per day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the company washes them and brings more every Friday. According to Clunies-Ross, expected turnout is 15 to 18 individuals, with a few more on cold days. The attendants said they expected 20. Of over 20 individuals who entered the building, only two were women. Kidane said that most lived in Berkeley, but some came from neighboring Oakland and Richmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We only have 20 towels left,â&#x20AC;? Moses said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those have to last till Friday.â&#x20AC;? Friday was six days away. It was a chilly Saturday morning in Berkeley. Sarah Mohamed is the lead city government reporter.

Operational excellence initiative has been a source of controversy since

2009, when UC Berkeley became the first campus in the UC system to hire an outside consulting firm to identify ways to save money in light of severe budget cuts from the state. The history of the initiative is a contentious one, as concerns have been raised about its cost, staff layoffs and a lack of student participation. Actions against the initiative have ranged from passing bills through the student government to a seven-hour protest at the fourth-story ledge of Wheeler Hall. Now, after nearly two years of planning, the initiative has reached a pivotal moment as it moves into its implementation phase. This fall, projects ranging from the creation of a new campus office with the intent of reducing energy use to mass-ordering supplies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including lab equipment and computers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will begin to unfold. The project originated because of a $150 million deficit in the 2009-10 school year. In October 2009, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau announced that the campus would hire consulting firm Bain & Company to identify ways to increase campus efficiency and cut administrative costs, following the example of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Cornell University. After meeting with various campus groups for advice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including members of a steering committee, the ASUC, the UC Berkeley division of the Academic Senate and the Council of Deans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the company released its final diagnostic report April 12, 2010, which identified more than $100 million in savings for the campus. Though the campus hired the firm in October 2009 at a cost of $3 million, the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued support of the initiative through Dec. 31, 2010 cost an additional $4.5 million. In order to carry out the implementation of the initiative, the campus reached an understanding with the UC Office of the President to borrow 75 percent of the initiativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s implementation cost. This is expected to total $50 million to $70 million over the next three years with annual costs of $5 million thereafter, to be paid back through the initiativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savings. In a May 3, 2010 letter, Birgeneau said he would adopt many of the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggested changes with the goal of saving $75 million annually by establishing a program office to oversee the initiative and forming teams to implement changes in procurement, information technology, student services, energy management, organizational simplification, high-performance culture and financial management. In early June 2010, Birgeneau appointed Albert Pisano, then professor and acting dean of the College of Engineering, as the faculty head of the program office, and 14 team leaders were appointed who received no additional compensation and were expected to devote

The vision of a more lively late-night commercial atmosphere on Telegraph Avenue to complement students’ and community members’ nontraditional workday is a dream that has been brewing since 2007. In the last few months, that dream has built up steam, with more merchants latching onto the idea of transforming Telegraph into a 24-hour commercial zone, alongside the Telegraph Business Improvement District, which drafted a proposal last year that would extend businesses’ hours to 3 a.m. Currently, businesses that want to operate beyond Berkeley’s by-right hours — allowing businesses that do not serve alcohol to stay open until 12 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, two hours later than establishments that do serve alcohol — can apply for an Administrative Use Permit or Use Permit. Readjusting these hours altogether would save businesses the trouble of applying for individual permits, a lengthy process that has discouraged businesses from seeking later closing times. After reviewing a Berkeley City Council referral — based on the Telegraph district’s 3 a.m. proposal — at a Planning Commission meeting March 2, commissioners asked the city’s Planning & Development Department to draft a new report, which will restrict the proposal to establishments that do not sell alcoholic beverages and will be maintained between Bancroft and Dwight ways. But Caffe Mediterraneum owner Craig Becker decided not to wait any longer. About two weeks after the commission met, Becker individually applied for an administrative use permit that would allow the cafe to stay open 24 hours. However, since the permit was approved June 6, the cafe has not extended its hours beyond its current midnight closing time. Once the city drafts the new report, a public hearing will likely take place, and then maybe after that, the 24/7 dream will finally become a reality. – Stephanie Baer


JEFFREY JOH/STAFF shirin ghaffary/staff

When you best Natalie Coughlin before even coming to Berkeley, that’s usually a good indicator of future success. Bears sophomore Cindy Tran broke the former Cal great’s 1998 national high school record in the 100-yard backstroke by over a second — and Tran’s first year with the Bears wasn’t too shabby, either. The Westminster, Calif. native went on to become the conference and national champion in that signature event, while also participating in two relay victories — the 200- and 400-yard medleys — during Cal’s NCAA title run in March. With the departures of key seniors Amanda Sims and Erica Dagg, look for Tran to play an even bigger role as Teri McKeever’s club tries to repeat in 2012. — Ed Yevelev

Allen Crabbe If an athlete is poised to make the jump into the

Cal record books, it probably doesn’t hurt to use six and a half feet of gangly raw talent as a starting platform. During a season of exceeded expectations, Allen Crabbe of the men’s basketball team stepped up to the front of the starting lineup with a phenomenal freshman year campaign. Somewhere in between posting a career-high 30 points versus Washington State and recording four consecutive 20-plus games in the final stretch, Crabbe dominated the second half of his first collegiate season. He finished at the top of Cal’s leaderboards with 16.4 ppg in conference play and set a new freshman record for three-pointers with 62. With all that in mind, it’s no wonder that Crabbe snagged Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. And with three more seasons to return to the court, it’s unlikely that Crabbe will level off anytime soon. — Annie Gerlach

Cindy Tran

(SPORTS) Keenan Allen Few career debuts could match the dazzling performance that Keenan Allen put on last September at Memorial Stadium. Inferior opponent aside, the Greensboro, N.C. native showed everyone in attendance why he was such a coveted recruit coming out of high school. Allen proved hard to tackle and even tougher to chase down, as he zigzagged his way through the UC Davis defense for 158 total yards and two scores. Though he was slowed by injuries and could not repeat those gaudy performances throughout the season, Allen still put together a very productive freshman year. He broke DeSean Jackon’s true freshman reception record and led the team with five touchdown catches. A versatile player who will also serve as a kick returner, Allen could blossom into one of the Pac-12’s best big-play threats in 2011. If the Bears’ offense has any shot at keeping pace in a highscoring conference, he’ll need to touch the field often and as much as possible. — Ed Yevelev

Kyle Porter

When freshman Kyle Porter took the mound in this summer’s College World Series, he was only making his fourth career start. He got the win. There will be a lot more starts — and wins — for Porter come next season. With Cal losing three top pitchers — Dixon Anderson, Erik Johnson and Kevin Miller — to the MLB Draft, the freshman All-American will need to become a stalwart of the in-weekend rotation in 2012. With his impressive play for the Bears last year, especially in the postseason, Porter should have no problem filling the void. The southpaw gave up just three runs in six innings and struck out four in the Bears’ CWS victory over Texas A&M. Porter was even more dominant in his previous start — the NCAA Houston Regional against Baylor, where he tossed a careerhigh 6 ⅔ shutout innings for the win. He only gave up three hits and struck out nine to make the Houston Regional AllTournament Team. For the season, Porter was 6-0 with a 1.89 ERA and strikeout-to-walk ratio of nearly 4. The only potential problem for Porter could be the departure of the Bears’ pitching coach, Dan Hubbs, who left to take the same position at USC. — Jonathan Kuperberg

Lauren Battung The two brilliant World Cup goals by former Cal star Alex Morgan showcased her considerable talent on the international stage — the same offensive skills that will be absent at Edwards Stadium this fall. The Bears may never be able to fill Morgan’s scoring void in 2011, but it’s clear that their offense will go the way of Battung’s performances this fall. Cal’s speedy junior forward was already a major contributor last year for Neil McGuire’s squad, finishing second behind Morgan in scoring in 2010 with seven goals, while also chipping in four assists to earn an All-Pac-10 honorable mention. Considering her stellar start in 2011, Battung is poised to take the mantle as Cal’s top offensive threat. She has found the net in each of the Bears’ first two contests — scoring her team’s lone goal in the season opener, and giving Cal an early advantage during Sunday’s thrilling overtime victory over San Diego State. — Ed Yevelev

Ray Stewart

For junior college transfers, NCAA competition must feel like a race against the clock — after all, there is only half as much time to make a lasting impact in your sport. Cal’s Ray Stewart certainly didn’t waste in his first season. A local product from Oakland’s Merritt College, Stewart captured the Pac-10 title in the 110-meter hurdles this May — becoming the program’s first conference champion in the event since Larry Cowling 30 years ago. His time of 13.48 is still good for the second-best performance in program history. Unfortunately, a sore hamstring kept him from capping that season with a solid showing at the NCAA Championships; Stewart did not even place in Des Moines, Iowa. This spring, Stewart will look to defend his conference crown and potentially finish off his brief career in storybook fashion at Nationals. — Ed Yevelev

Michael Weaver

As one of the smaller sports on campus, Cal men’s golf can fall to the wayside. But as one of the greatest Cal golf players of all time, Michael Weaver isn’t so easily overlooked. Coming off his most successful season yet, Weaver earned the highest finish ever by a Cal athlete at the NCAA Championships when he tied for eighth with a 72.8 average. But Weaver has been making waves ever since his freshman season, when he became the first player in program history to finish in the top-10 at both the Pac-10 Championship and the NCAA Regional. After Weaver earned a Division I PING All-American honorable mention last season, it seems that the rest of the nation is taking notice as well. However, there’s still one title that eludes him: NCAA Champion. As a junior — and arguably Cal’s most successful golfer ever — Weaver still has two years to make that final drive. — Annie Gerlach

Turn down

Outgoing Auxiliary director reflects on term

the suck!

When I first got hired at The Daily Californian, I thought I was the shit. No matter that I had already been rejected once before and up until that point had little to no journalism experience. I was on top of the world and thought I was going to be amazing. Then I had my first assignment. That’s when it hit me: I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Turns out covering school dances and canned food drives doesn’t prepare you for realworld journalism very well. I remember coming in that morning thinking I’d learn how the office worked, mess around with the computers and whatnot. Little did I know I’d be embarking on my very own story assignment. My editor told me, “One of the libraries is being renovated in Berkeley, so that’s what you’re writing about — six inches, due at 5 p.m. today.” Inches?! What are inches? Who runs the library? Where is the library? Couldn’t I watch someone else write their story first? No, now I had to write six full inches — roughly 270 words, or less than half the length of this column (ha) — about the impending library renovations. I was frantic. I called everyone I could possibly think of, heard back from no one, skipped my class to keep reporting and even plopped down in the middle of Upper Sproul Plaza to take notes for an interview when someone finally called me back on my cellphone.

Permaul to finish volunteer duties Sept. 1 Outgoing ASUC Auxiliary Director Nadesan Permaul retired June 29, 2011 from his post eugene lau/staff

J.D. morris

But Permaul had already intended to retire within the next year, and he said his reasoning for doing so this summer instead was based on the best interests of his family. Additionally, he said his decision came as the result of discussions with Ron Coley, associate vice chancellor for business and administrative services, to whom the Auxiliary reported prior to its realignment, and Jonathan Poullard, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students to whom the Auxiliary now reports. “Now it’s time for somebody younger, hopefully somebody who cares for and appreciates the ASUC as much as I do, to take the reins and work with student leaders,” Permaul said. Looking back on Permaul’s time at the Auxiliary and the host of projects he undertook, Marilyn Stager, acting Auxiliary director and former financial services manager, said Permaul’s involvement with the B.E.A.R.S. Initiative will likely be one of his longest-lasting legacies. The initiative was passed in the spring 2010 ASUC General Election and provides for the renovation of Lower Sproul Plaza — a project which includes the demolition and reconstruction of seismically unsafe Eshleman Hall and the enhancement of the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union. “Nad is a visionary, so in a way it was kind of hectic to work under him because he always had so many things he wanted to have happen,” Stager said. “The students are, and they’ve always been, his number

Check Online Watch an interview with Nadesan Permaul about his time as Director of the ASUC Auxiliary.

When Nadesan Permaul arrived at UC Berkeley as an incoming freshman in 1967, he probably did not anticipate that he would devote much of his professional career to the campus. A native of the eastern San Fernando Valley, he had not even visited before he made his way up for orientation. But it was not long before he became enamored with his surroundings. “Literally, the first day I arrived here, I walked up to Memorial Stadium because it was a Sunday and the Bears had just played Oregon the day before, and I went into the stadium and looked around and I thought ‘wow, this is big time,’” Permaul said. “I think it was a romance from the moment I walked here.” Fast-forward about 44 years and the romance is still alive, even as Permaul, the outgoing director of the ASUC Auxiliary, prepares to finish his administrative duties on campus. He leaves in the midst of a pivotal time for the ASUC. The June 28 announcement of his retirement came the day before it took effect and just three days before a controversial realignment of the Auxiliary to the Division of Student Affairs, though Permaul is continuing on a voluntary basis until Sept. 1.

of the only student governments in the country with an active political party system — and then knew that I wanted to pursue journalism as a career. Learning the dynamics of the different parties involved, covering a large scale election and honing my political reporting skills gave me the boost I needed to push forward. Sometimes, all it takes is a slight surge in confidence to inspire someone to move on to greater things. Over my two years here, I have had the opportunity to cover a controversial divestment bill authored by some members of the ASUC Senate that garnered international attention, to interview Archbishop Desmond Tutu and to cover a statewide protest for higher education in Sacramento and countless other contentious issues throughout the University of California. And with each issue I tackled, I found myself wanting to try harder, reaching for higher aspirations and always looking for ways to improve. Now, having been in the same position as all my former editors (God bless them),

Sometimes I like making mistakes just to see if I can get myself out of them. When I was four, it was cutting my mid-back length hair shorter and shorter until it came within three inches of being considered a pixie cut. I thought that it would quickly grow back within a couple of weeks. It didn’t. When I was 10, it was drawing a whale on my bedroom wall with a blue permanent marker. I thought that it could easily be covered up using my white watercolors. It wasn’t. When I was 18, it was writing four term papers in four nights — 29 pages of text for four different classes. Why I had put them off until the absolute last minute, I hadn’t the slightest clue. I guess I just thought that time would slow down for me and that my papers would write

If you want the textbook definition of a hot mess, that was me. In the end, it worked out, but needless to say, that is not one of my most outstanding articles. Looking back on that moment two years later, it seems so silly how much I was hyperventilating about such a simple story. But going from being editor in chief of your high school newspaper to the bottom of the barrel at an award-winning college newspaper can be quite a traumatic experience. I had to start all over. I had to relearn everything I (thought I) knew. And never in a million years did I think I would be a news editor here. I thought I was exceptionally horrible — and to be completely honest, I was, for a while. I was one disaster after another. Have you ever had someone completely rip apart something you wrote and rewrite the entire thing? Not a fun experience. But I buckled down, paid my dues and worked my way up through the organization. I went back and relearned the basics — who, what, when, where, why? Who started this? Why is it significant? Where will things go in the future? I built on that every day, discovering more and more that I was finding my passion, and during my second semester at the Daily Cal, I reached a turning point. I began covering the ASUC — one

themselves. It didn’t, and they didn’t. Now I find myself here — years older than the girl I always saw myself as being, yes — but years wiser? Sometimes, that’s debatable. The truth about life and about growing up is that you make mistakes — whether they are little blunders like getting hilariously drunk and kissing the wrong boys or big whoppers like disappointing your parents to the point of nearly losing their financial support for your university’s tuition. Last school year, I made that whopper. At 19, I developed bad habits and pushed them to see exactly where the limits were — if there were any at all. I put my reputation, my pride, my academic record, my parents’ support and thousands of dollars on the line. I thought I was invincible. I wasn’t. I never made a mistake I wasn’t sure I

could get out of. I had little goofs, sure, but they were never irreparable. Hair grows back. Drawings on the wall can be painted over. And there isn’t an all-nighter that can’t be conquered by endless cups of Americanos. But the worst mistakes — the ones that are almost impossible to rectify — are the ones that hurt other people. Somewhere along the way, I stopped caring. Somewhere along the way, I lost that drive. I let freshman year get

bidwell: Remembering that not every person can be an instant star I see my reporters having the same meltdowns and issues that I had, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to know it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just me. But I always try to keep in mind how I felt as a reporter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when I was just starting out here, terrified of my editors, with absolutely no clue who was on the UC Board of Regents or what â&#x20AC;&#x153;institutional knowledgeâ&#x20AC;? was and why it was important. And as frustrating as it can get,

From Page 18

when a reporter comes to me and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me basic facts for their story â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when an event occurred or where the funding for a project theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re writing about came from â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I try to teach them, rather than chastise them, as much as I sometimes want to throw things. But you have to remember that not everyone is an instant star and that sometimes it takes a little more time and direction to reach the point when it all clicks. If you give it enough time and ef-

fort, all of the things that you used to obsess over and worry about become completely intuitive and are no longer a concern. Pat yourself on the back when you make strides forward, but always remember how you got there and what keeps you grounded. Use common sense, think about what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and always try to keep the bigger picture in mind. And if all else fails, go back to the basics and learn it all again. Because that works. Just look at me.

cruz: Letting my mistakes refine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not define â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my journey in college the best of me. I indulged in partying and reckless boys and late nights and sleeping in and procrastinating. Most of all, I indulged myself in the delusion that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care until, eventually, I really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I abandoned my goals and convinced myself that I would take the time to â&#x20AC;&#x153;figure out who I really was,â&#x20AC;? and I would be damned if someone saw that as me being selfish. My grades suffered, my relationship with my parents deteriorated and worst of all, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confront either situation because I just found it so hard to care about anything. Fast forward to the end of this summer, when the truth about my misadventures became known to my parents. They were absolutely furious and threatened to take away my tuition for this year. Being an out-of-state

student, I faced more than $53,000 being lost in an instant. I would have been on a plane back to Texas with no chance of returning to UC Berkeley in the fall. But by the good graces of my parents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m assuming a little divine intervention â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m back here tentatively, on the condition that I keep up honest communication with them and work incredibly hard to repair the damage I have done. This was a mistake that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t simply undo, and I know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be working the rest of my undergraduate career to prove to my parents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to myself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that I deserve to stay here. I wish I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had to go through it, but in retrospect, this experience was exactly the wake-up call I needed. I found myself at a crucial moment, and the direction I needed to take forced me to return to being the pas-

sionate person I always was â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and should always be â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while at the same time pressing forward with the utmost perseverance and never looking back. Passion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for learning, for family, for life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is real, and the mere prospect of experiencing it is proof enough of its worth. I feel as if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost the sense of how wonderful it really is. I feel as if I caved in and surrendered the thrill of the chase for perfection for the convenience of the catch of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;good enough.â&#x20AC;? If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned from this experience, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that the chase is never easy, but it is always rewarding. There is an unparalleled, inimitable feeling of accomplishment that comes with it, and who I am will always hold out for the best possible outcome. And I have my mistakes to thank for that.

PERMAUL: Hiring team to conduct national search for new Auxiliary director one priority â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he loves students.â&#x20AC;? ASUC President Vishalli Loomba said she appreciated Permaulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work as an ally for students in many respects, including an overall attitude of helpfulness and an investment in the success of students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has made so many incredible contributions to this campus,â&#x20AC;? Loomba said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount that he gives to students is immeasurable.â&#x20AC;? For his part, Permaul noted that the initiativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage has also improved the relationship between the ASUC and the campus because the two groups are now financially tied together in order to fund the project. But Permaulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time at the Auxiliary

From Page 18

is far from the only position he has held on campus. Prior to becoming Auxiliary director in 2006, Permaul was the director of Parking and Transportation for about 10 years. Before that, his various roles on campus included positions at UCPD and the Department of Recreational Sports. As far as finding a permanent replacement for Permaul, a hiring team composed of student and campus officials will conduct a national search to find a new director, and Stager will continue to serve as director until a permanent replacement can be found. Previously, because of the expedited timeline for Permaulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement, concern had been raised about whether his departure was entirely voluntary, but Permaul declined to com-

ment directly on that topic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it serves any purpose for me to talk about that at all â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I think the people who are working on the transition team for the ASUC Auxiliary â&#x20AC;Ś if there are issues that needed to be addressed that are still outstanding, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they will be addressed in that process,â&#x20AC;? he said. Looking forward, though he does plan on continuing to teach, Permaul said he does not plan on being formally involved in the ASUC once his departure is complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I left the presidency of the alumni association in 2005, I had the good sense to remember what I did when I was student body president in high school ... stay out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give the next person the chance to do their thing.â&#x20AC;?

Electric Feel

time conflicts become the norm at any music festival, as those pesky event planners schedule their headliners for the same slots. B ut as I sat on the fields of Golden Gate Park, an Outside Lands brochure in one hand and a pen in the other, something about this particular choice puzzled me more than usual. Crowds were already starting to swarm the stages, so I merely shrugged off my confusion and opted to bask in the blinding strobe lights of Girl Talk rather than fight it out in a crowd of Muse addicts. Come Sunday, however, I was stuck with a similar predicament â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Arcade Fire vs. Deadmau5. And as I, again, found myself in a tightly packed mass of wriggling bodies as pounding bass attacked us from all directions, I wondered when electronic music struck such a chord in listeners and whether it has reached its peak. House, dubstep, electropop â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to some people, it all sounds the same, while others will probably rip you apart for throwing Kaskade and Magnetic Man into the same genre. Whatever your drug of choice, everything strips down to a machine that happens to have some nifty features. If you have the money to splurge on a fancy mixer and (advanced) programs, technology will do all the work for you. Start with a basic beat, mix in some drops, loop a bit of instrumentals and voila â&#x20AC;&#x201D; foolproof formula for a surefire hit. At least, this seems to be the case with most artists these days. With everyone from LMFAO to J.Lo dropping house beats behind their Top 40 hits, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to cast the electronic genre off as just another fad. Because câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon, if even Britney can quickly pick up dubstep (or at least, she tries to), how much skill does

Past and future music festivals, with a bigger electronic emphasis it actually take? Despite the banality of these homogeneous-sounding radio hits, there is still much to be appreciated when listening to the great masters. These true proponents of the genre have been around long before the craze picked up speed and have been honing their tunes for years. Sure, pumping Afrojack and Dada Life livens the mood at any party. But others such as Brazilian duo The Twelves can do wonders with their remixes, and industrial rockers The Glitch Mob have perfected a sound that is innovative yet instantly enjoyable. Ravers and DJs, rejoice, for this is your time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Womp wompsâ&#x20AC;? and four-tothe-floor beats are reaching the height of their popularity, and eager fans are eating up any and every semblance of these fast-paced numbers. Not only have electronic artists been quickly popping up at major festivals both national and international, but they also cater to the immense demand as they draw in some of the biggest crowds. Giving in to the temptation of seizureinducing light shows and shaking bass? The Bay Area fosters this desire, and the next semester looks especially promising. To kick off the season, the first annual IDentity festival at Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shoreline Theater on Labor Day weekend features acts such as Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Nero and Datsik. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier dance party extravaganza, LovEvolution, returns on Sept. 24, boasting headliners such as Pendulum, The Glitch Mob and Moby. DJ extraordinaires Skrillex and Deadmau5 will be stopping by the area on Oct. 28 at the Warfield and Oct. 29 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, respectively. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for lighter, more poppy beats, Treasure Island Day One has invited Empire of the Sun and Cut Copy to delight audiences with their spectacular displays. So pick a concert â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or maybe just crash all of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and bask in the glorious reign of the electronic.

The renovation of Lower Sproul Plaza may be completed all at once instead of in two phases victoria pardini » staff «

The Lower Sproul Plaza renovation project is set to enter its design development phase after approval from the UC Board of Regents. The design development phase will determine the more minute details of the project as construction approaches.

As the Lower Sproul Plaza renovation project is set to enter into a phase which will determine its minute elements, committee members have also been considering a decision to potentially minimize the project’s total construction time. Recently, committees within the project have begun discussions to consolidate the two-phase project into a single phase. The decision would affect future considerations in determining surge space for the roughly 150 student groups that will be displaced as a result of the project. Renovation of the plaza was sparked by the passage of the B.E.A.R.S. Initiative in the spring 2010 ASUC General Election. The initiative outlined goals to improve the sustainability, safety and energy efficiency of the plaza, as well as create a more aesthetically pleasing space and an area for multicultural groups. The original text of the initiative indicated that the project would be completed in two separate phases. The first phase includes demolishing Eshleman Hall. The second phase includes renovating the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union as well as parts of the Cesar Chavez Student Center. There are also plans to update the plaza and add a rain garden on the west side of Cesar Chavez, according to Jonathan Poullard, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students. The project is governed by two committees, the Lower Sproul work group and the program committee. The work group is composed of faculty, staff, students and outside consultants, including contractors and the architect firm designing the project. The work group then funnels information and recommendations to the program committee — co-chaired by Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Harry Le Grande and Vice Provost of Teaching, Learning Academic Planning and Facilities Catherine Koshland — which serves as the final decision maker in how the project moves forward. The total budget of the project is estimated at about $223 million, of which UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau has committed to campus contributions of up to $99 million to fund the project. The remainder will be provided by student fees beginning

in the 2010-11 fiscal year and ending in the 2051-52 fiscal year, as approved by UC President Mark Yudof in July 2010. “My goal is that for every step of the process there is student input, especially because students are footing most of the bill,” said Graduate Assembly President Bahar Navab. “It’s a project for the students, by the students.” Currently, the committees are completing the schematic design phase of the project and will move on to the design development stage of the project upon approval of the project budget and design by the UC Board of Regents in November, according to Poullard. The design development stage of the project focuses on specific details of the design, such as fixtures, lighting and windows within the buildings. According to ASUC President Vishalli Loomba, deciding the number of phases in the project will determine which physical locations for surge space will be used for displaced student organizations. Outgoing ASUC Auxiliary Director Nadesan Permaul said in an email that there may be complexities in consolidating construction phases in that the fee schedule and cash flow with the revised construction schedule would have to be reconciled. However, he added that he was “confident” that the university would make a careful analysis before potentially revising the schedule. The next program committee meeting is scheduled for Monday, and a vote on the phasing of the project will be contingent on whether enough information about each option has been presented, according to Navab. Loomba said that at this point a single phase seems to be the best option because more students can reap the benefits of the renovation and because a bid on the construction of the plaza will likely not experience the inflation in construction costs that may be present in a bid for the second phase. “We want to make sure we’re exploring every possible option when it comes to phasing,” she said. “It has a huge implication on the process, so we want to make sure we choose the right approach.” Victoria Pardini covers development and capital projects.


initiative: Some projects being implemented or already completed 20 to 40 percent of their time to their projects. In July, Peggy Huston, former interim director for the campus Technology Program Office, was selected as program director to work along with Pisano. In early January 2011, Pisano resigned from his position and was replaced by Andrew Szeri, professor of mechanical engineering and dean of the Graduate Division. Bill Reichle, former chief business officer of the California Alumni Association, was selected as the communications leader for the program office in January. The unit restructuring project has been the most controversial part of the initiative, with Birgeneau’s September announcement that some 200 staff positions would be eliminated starting in January to save the campus about $20 million annually. Campus leaders of 27 different units — including colleges and divisions under vice chancellors — were required to submit plans to consolidate and restructure their departments by Nov. 1, 2010. In January 2011, Birgeneau announced in a campuswide email that

from page 15


a total of 280 staff positions would be cut by June 2011, 150 of which would be layoffs. In early April 2011, the program office released totals for the first time, showing how much each campus unit had been asked to cut through restructuring and position eliminations. Students began to raise concerns about a lack of student participation in the initiative through an ASUC bill introduced in September 2010 advocating for the creation of student positions on initiative teams, and a second bill was passed in October 2010 calling for increased student oversight after Pisano presented a student involvement plan that the ASUC rejected. In December 2010, the ASUC Student Operational Excellence Committee began meeting to discuss ways to increase student involvement within the initiative. The committee is currently working to increase the number of students on implementation teams and establishing a DeCal class centered around the initiative. The most high-profile action against the initiative occurred March 4, 2011, when eight protesters occupied the fourth-story ledge of Wheeler Hall for about seven hours, citing one of their demands as meeting with Birgeneau about the initiative. In response to

this, Birgeneau met with four students and a union worker about one month later to discuss issues such as staff consolidation in the ethnic studies, gender and women’s studies and AfricanAmerican studies departments. The initiative teams submitted about 40 project design proposals by March 31 to the program office, which have since been moving through the office, a coordinating committee and executive committee for approval before their implementation. Some projects — such as restructuring campus academic units — have already been completed or have begun implementation. According to Reichle, the proposal review process is taking longer than originally expected and may continue until November or December as the leaders of the initiative decide how much money to invest in each project. “After lots of design and review, we are going to start to see more implementation happening this year,” Reichle said. “For many people, the concept of Operational Excellence was unit restructuring, but it’s much more than that — we are investing in software tools and processes.” Alisha Azevedo is the lead academics and administration reporter.

DeCoulode said current UCPD radio equipment is “well past its normal life expectancy” to the point where Motorola — the company that manufactured the radio equipment originally — no longer manufactures the specific system’s parts. The recommendation to the City Council also noted that much of its radio equipment “is reaching the end of its useful life.” The authority has officially been in development since 2007 and is projected to have all of its six cells completed and operational by June 2012, according to William McCammon, the authority’s executive director. McCammon said that the cells which are already running have shown to supply “better cover-

FROM age” than the old system, something he PAGE attributes in part to its newer equipment. 12 So far, the authority has raised about $48 million in grants. On top of this, the two counties covered by the authority lent the project $17 million in the form of bond issue which will be repaid through the system’s annual operations fees. The authority still needs to raise about $2 million in grants, an amount which McCammon is confident it can achieve based on the authority’s previous grant average of $4 million to $5 million per year. In addition to federal narrowbanding requirements, the switch over to the regional system will put the city into compliance with another FCC mandate set to go into effect in 2016 which will require interoperability for agencies that have received federal funding for updates to their communication systems. Sarah Burns is the lead crime reporter.


Yes. It was a good book because it was an honest book, and that’s what war does to men. And there’s nothing fine and noble about dying in the mud unless you die gracefully. And then it’s not only noble but brave.” — Ernest Hemingway, ‘Midnight in Paris’

SUMMERI With the summer of 2011 nearing its end, we look back on the films, trends and musical acts that mattered.

www .dai lyca

The D down aily Cal Art of the the best an s staff brea summ d k er. worst film s s




n recent memory, no moviegoing experience was, and is and will be, as talked about as Terrence Malick’s big-dreaming, life-affirming, irritating “The Tree of Life.” In a brisk two-and-a-half hours — more than I can say for the latest, longest “Transformers” entry, also ambitious and annoying — the film packs in an American family tragedy, the birth of the universe, dinosaurs and a lot of

Sean Penn’s face. Malick, the cinematic magician behind “Days of Heaven” (1978), “The Thin Red Line” (1998), among others, is known for taking lengthy hiatuses between films and being elusive in public. But he made our own summer hiatus something rather special in sharing his utterly original, Malick-y (because no adjective exists to aptly define the man’s work) vision,

even if “The Tree” occasionally left us feeling cold or as if we weren’t in on the big (cosmic) joke, or if it even was a joke. Also, thanks to this film and others, we’ve witnessed the birth of a sublime new star: Jessica Chastain, who impressed us here and in “The Help.” Hopefully we’ll see more of her, because we certainly won’t see Malick again for awhile. Pity. — Ryan Lattanzio


ATTACK THE BLOCK A liens seemed to be everywhere this summer. From the ghastly “Green Lantern” to the gun-slinging action of “Cowboys & Aliens,” extraterrestrials invaded the cineplexes with a boldness befitting your typical blockbuster. Except one. “Attack the Block,” from producer Edgar Wright, doesn’t have the vastness of the wild West or the flashy effects of Ryan Reynolds’ green suit. Instead, what we get is

a far more subtle and grounded film where comedy, character and creepy creatures intersect in the streets of South London. Like Wright’s directorial efforts “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” “Attack the Block” pits common characters against extraordinary circumstances. After mugging a helpless nurse, a gang of council estate teenagers find themselves up against an onslaught of, as one

of them puts it, “big gorilla wolf motherfuckers.” In other words, aliens. It’s a simple premise and an even simpler film. Where other blockbusters, like “Cowboys & Aliens,” splurged on effects, “Attack the Block” relies on the humanity of its characters and the sharp humor of its script to produce a movie far more entertaining than the summer’s bigger-budget bores. — Jessica Pena SCREEN GEMS/COURTESY

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 C all it utter fandom or a cult. The magical world of Harry Potter has been defining generations for years, and with the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” there was no doubt that not only will tears be shed but also childhoods finally left behind. Veteran “Harry Potter” director David Yates presented an actionpacked, fast-paced epic that left

viewers breathless. The titular golden boy (Daniel Radcliffe) and his steadfast crew (Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) raced against a noseless villain (Ralph Fiennes), launching spells and battling it out through lands both foreign and familiar. Granted, the film had its faults — ones that we love to hate. Yes, the epilogue was strange and awkward. And of course, the plot

was confusing for anyone who has never indulged in the series. But honestly, why would you watch the very last movie if you haven’t seen the rest? For the true fans with wands in their hands and Sharpie scars, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” delivered a satisfying conclusion and regretfully shuts the door on an unforgettable realm. — Cynthia Kang



MIDNIGHT IN PARIS W oody Allen’s latest masterpiece, “Midnight in Paris,” revives the thread of summer slump films. Disillusioned American writer Gil (Owen Wilson) wistfully wanders the cobblestone streets of Paris in search of inspiration. Gil is at the point of creative despair when he stumbles upon a timetraveling car. Allen transports us, along with Gil, back to Paris in the 1920s

and lovingly bombards the screen with writers and artists of the era (Fitzgerald and Hemingway, among others). Allen’s dialogue is delightfully full of witticisms, imparting enough inside jokes to cause art or English majors to high-five each other when recognizing references. Yet Allen maintains a thread of earnestness in his writing, saving the whole film from getting bogged down

with pretention. As the comeback kid, Owen Wilson gives a lovably flustered, impassioned performance reminiscent of Allen himself. It’s greatly appreciated that such a deliciously characterdriven film is out in theaters, but that appreciation comes with a subsequent yearning to go back to the days when films like “Paris” reigned on the silver screen. ­— Dominique Brillon


RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES T urns out that computer-generated monkeys are more entertaining than computergenerated car robots, as proven by Ruper Wyatt’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” This is either an indication of how good “Rise” is or how bad the industry is at churning out consistently adequate films. Either way, this prequel to the “Apes” saga cleverly lays down all of the ground

information on how the apes we saw in the 1968 and 2001 films came to be upstanding citizens. For all those hesitant to watch a movie about monkeys being given mind-altering drugs that accelerate their brain development, at least consider the fact that you’ll be watching Andy Serkis (or Gollum, as some of us know him) playing a very convincing, heroic primate. Serkis

once again showcases his brilliance behind the veil of CGI effects, proving that nuanced character work can still be done even with the addition of computer-generated images. It’s Serkis who carries the film, making it stand not only as an sci-fi action thriller, but also as a character study on the ethics of drug experimentation. ­— Dominique Brillon

THE STONE FOXES T his past year, a majority of the music scene has been dominated by electropop gloss and DJ raves, making it challenging to find artists who are still in tune with guitar slingin’ and drums that are more than just pads. While groups such as The Black Keys have been gaining popularity, San Francisco has a new blues band to call their own. The Stone Foxes have steadily been gaining


followers for some time now, and this past year has shown that you don’t need big-name swagger to gain both commercial popularity and a strong fanbase. The Foxes’ gritty blues and vintage strut have been heard throughout various festivals this past year. From their recent stint at SF’s Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, to their future gig at the New Orleans Voodoo Music

Fest, the Foxes are moving up to new levels of fame. The Bay Area quartet’s cover of “I’m A King Bee” was featured in the Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Whiskey commercial as well, adding to their down and dirty demeanor. If you feel daring enough, the Stone Foxes are worth seeing — just be prepared for a raucously fun time. ­— Ian Birnam

TUNE-YARDS B reaking the rules of sound while adorned in bizarre costumes, Merrill Garbus delights with her unconventional blend of jazz and glitch that also happens to be wildly entertaining. tUnE-YarDs, whose funny-looking name is merely the first indication of its progressive style, never delivers a dull moment. Both the debut and the follow-up, recorded in

Oakland, brim with unexpected innovation. With softly crooning vocals, bursts of sax and syncopated drum beats, tUnE-YarDs emerges as a project that can truly label itself as a proponent of its genre. Garbus should be happy to realize that her studio efforts have not been in vain. Her recent set at Outside Lands, despite its ridiculously early time slot, drew

a mass of extremely supportive fans. But the tightly-packed crowd was happily compensated by tUnE-YarDs’ show. Garbus dutifully carried out her infamous live mixing in a manner that fell nothing short of mindblowing. Talented, charismatic and adamantly fearless, Garbus has turned tUnE-YarDs into an entirely justified hype. — Cynthia Kang


KREAYSHAWN T he badass female MC is an elusive figure. All too often, girls with considerable rhyme-busting skills get packaged into sexed-upBarbie-doll boxes by major record labels, doomed to sing pop hooks and booty-shake until the expiration date of their frivolous popularity arrives. While it’s a bit early in the game to tell for sure, Kreayshawn shows promise of a forthcoming career that deviates from the standard route to fame ascribed to women in the hiphop industry. With two mixtapes and a few singles already under her belt before landing a record deal


with Columbia, the young rapper has taken a decidedly DIY route to glory. Her fast ascent to mainstream popularity via YouTube (I recently heard the bass of “Gucci Gucci” pumping out of a middle aged man’s BMW) speaks to her self-made success. Though Kreayshawn might not exactly be a top-notch lyricist, her punny rhymes and cleverly-crafted disses to all the Barbie-hoes certainly give listeners a good chuckle as they bob their heads to the heavy beats. Not to mention the multitalented East Oakland native is an “editor, director/ plus (she’s her) own

boss.” As suggested in “Gucci Gucci,” Kreayshawn is the cinematographer behind the music videos of several up-and-coming local rappers, most notably the East Bay’s other internet-famous hip-hop darling, Lil B. The Bay Area’s hip-hop scene has been suffering from a lingering posthyphy hangover over the past few years (probably due to all that thizzing in the early aughts), and it’s about time a fresh young voice was heard. Kreayshawn’s provocative public image continues to earn her new fans as well as haters, but at least she’s her own creation. — Nastia Voynovskaya

ince the release of Bryan Singer’s “X-Men” a little over a decade ago, the superhero blockbuster has developed into a summer season mainstay, serving as the perfect setup for the big-budget special effectsdriven blockbusters that have packs of audiences lining up at the theater. Throughout this period, the genre has undergone a maturation that has left many of the early films feeling dated, while bringing about the notion that Peter Parker and Bruce Wayne can be seen in the same light as George Bailey and Charles Foster Kane. The summer saw a new kind of superhero excursion this year, as movies like “X-Men: First Class” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” took a genre strictly rooted in the realm of set pieces into the world of period pieces. True, attempts have been made in the not-so-distant past to bring elements of the period drama to comic book adaptations (“Watchmen,” “300,” “Road

to Perdition”), but none of those films had the instant mainstream appeal or brand recognition of characters like Captain America or the X-Men. “Captain America” and “X-Men” also toyed with the possibility of an alternate reality, where actual historical events change according to how things could have played out if these superheroes actually existed during WWII and the Cuban Missile Crisis. However, the two movies differed in their inclusion of period elements. Whereas “Captain America” reveled in the nostalgia of the ’40s with its detailed costumes and music from the era, “X-Men” avoided all the flourishes of a traditional period piece. Instead, it used the events of the era solely as a plot device. Both cases lay the groundwork for future comic book adaptations, while illustrating that the kinks in formula for mixing the two genres may still need to be worked out. ­— Jawad Qadir

NEWLY RENDERED CLASSIC CARTOONS A nimation experienced a diverse range of new releases this summer, including a few new sequels from Pixar and DreamWorks as well as an overhaul of Disney’s beloved “Winnie the Pooh” franchise. With the release of “Cars 2,” Pixar appears to have chosen to return to a more lighthearted approach to storytelling than they took in their last few films. Those expecting a sequel in the same vein as the “Toy Story” films found themselves disappointed, but “Cars 2” still delivered the necessary laughs and visual brilliance that has become synonymous with Pixar Animation. Critics appeared more receptive to DreamWorks’ sequel to the hugely popular “Kung Fu Panda.” With its mix of beautifully hand-drawn sequences and computer animation, “Kung Fu Panda 2” echoes classics of another era, especially bringing to mind the Disney masterpiece, “The Lion King.” Gaining high praise for

its elaborate fight sequences, the film rivaled many of the live-action films for the right to claim the title as the most action-packed blockbuster of the summer. The use of 3D in animation was still seen with the release of both “Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Cars 2.” Fortunately, “Winnie the Pooh” avoided all the gimmicks that have come to be associated with almost every family release. Disney Animation set itself apart from the rest of the competition, as the studio continued its push for traditional hand-drawn animated films. Heavy on nostalgia and a little light on an actual story (the film has a running time of 69 minutes), “Winnie the Pooh” feels more like something that would have been better suited as a television special rather than its own theatrical release. But one can’t deny the appeal of traditional animation in a summer dominated by over-the-top CGI. ­— Jawad Qadir

The Bears of Summer School ends in mid-May, but Cal sports go on through the summer. What follows is the best of the Cal sports teams and players who had great summers.

Mike Morrison.

Traditionally, the winner of the decathlon is given the title, “World’s Greatest Athlete.” That would make Mike Morrison the collegiate world’s greatest athlete. Cal’s track and field star won the NCAA decathlon title on June 10 at the NCAA Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. Morrison finished with personal bests in six of the 10 events and set a school record with 8,118 points, edging out Duke’s Curtis Beach, who had 8,084 points. As a junior in 2010, Morrison was the national runner-up in the decathlon. He finally claimed the crown as a senior, becoming the fourth Cal athlete to win the decathlon title. On the first day of competition, Morrison set three personal records — 24-8.25 in the long jump, 42-8.00 in shot put and 48.06 in the 400 meters. The next day, his personal best mark of 127-2 in the discus vaulted him from fourth place into second. He also set a personal record in the javelin, with a mark of 198-4 in his first attempt, before storms stopped action. On the final day, Morrison ran his fastest 1500 meters, with a time of 4:35.35, to clinch the crown. His performance at the NCAAs earned him first-team All-American status. No doubt, Morrison’s graduation leave a sizable void on the Cal track and field squad. But a solid recruiting class, which includes five high school state champions and the junior college discus champion, should help make up for the loss. — Jonathan Kuperberg

Jana Juricova. Just a week after the Cal women’s tennis team exited in the third round of the NCAA Team Championships, Jana Juricova won the singles title to end the season on the high note last May. As the first two-time NCAA champion, Juricova won the title after defeating Stanford’s Stacey Tan, 6-0, 7-6 (2), at Tan’s home court in Taube Tennis Center. The Slovak Republic native is just the second Bear to win the single’s crown: former Cal standout Susie Babos won it in 2006 also at Taube Tennis Center. The big win should come as no surprise — the rising senior was ranked No. 1 in the nation. She also got it done in the classeugene w. lau/file room, earning her second first-team Pac-10 All-Academic nod. Juricova also advanced to the semifinals of the doubles championships alongside senior Mari Andersson but lost against the Cardinal’s Hilary Barte and Mallory Burdette. After losing Andersson, Juricova will play with another doubles partner for the first time. With coach Amanda Augustus focused this summer on finding Juricova’s complement, the Bears are in a transitional season in which young players like Anett Schutting and Annie Goransson will fill Andersson’s shoes. Despite the loss of Andersson, Juricova returns to the top court for her senior campaign to defend her singles title and seek a team crown. — Seung Y. Lee

It’s rare that the Cal rugby team isn’t the favorite to win the national title. Despite being defending champions, the Bears were the clear underdogs to a BYU squad heralded as possibly the best in the school’s history. After playing title games at Stanford for several years, Cal had to take on the Cougars in the heart of BYU territory in Sandy, Utah, for the May 21st title game. None of that mattered to coach Jack Clark’s squad, which played its most disciplined and organized rugby of the year to convincingly take the crown, 21-14, for the program’s 26th national title. It was more than the formidable BYU team and hostile environment that seemed to stack the deck against the Bears, who battled off the field distractions throughout the year. Cal (27-0, 10-0 in the CPD) entered the postseason with lackluster 43-10 quarterfinal win over Life University that left Clark wondering when he would see his team play to its true potential. He didn’t have to wait long, as the Bears came out firing on all cylinders against Utah in the semifinals, with the 62-14 win propelling the team into the title game. At first, Cal didn’t seem to carry that momentum into the final match, spending the first 20 minutes on defense. Eventually turning BYU away with nothing, the Bears went on the attack and didn’t look back. Behind two penalty kicks by Player of the Match James Bailes, Cal took a slight 13-7 advantage into halftime, which was extended to 14 points in the second half. The Cougars added a converted try to pull within seven. BYU seemed poised to tie during injury time, but each time the Bears were able to force errors or simply overpower their stout opponent. — Christina Jones

Alex Morgan. It’s halftime at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final. The game is tied 0-0. The U.S. Women’s national team insert Alex Morgan into the lineup after an injury to forward Lauren Cheney. With only 45 minutes left, not many expected the rookie forward to come in and completely change the match. She did. It was Morgan’s goal that gave the U.S. the lead over Japan and it was her assist that set up Abby Wambach for what seemed to be the game winner in overtime. Yet, the Japanese women’s national team somehow managed to claw its way back and win in gut-wrenching penalty kicks. Despite the loss in the final, the U.S. women, led by Wambach, veteran goalkeeper Hope Solo and super sub Morgan had already captured the hearts and attention of

the country after the exciting win over powerhouse Brazil in the semifinals. Morgan and company were welcomed back from Germany as stars. They set the records for tweets per minute on Twitter during the final match. Rumors were spreading that this Cal alumna would have her own reality show. And several high profile sponsors and appearances this summer solidified that Morgan’s newfound light isn’t going to flicker anytime soon. With the London Olympics looming next year, fans and neutrals alike can now expect Morgan to start making the impact in the full 90 minute game. — Camellia Senemar

Men’s Tennis.

summer sports: Baseball’s dream season ends in World Series berth From page 27

Baseball. I don’t care if I live to be 100; Cal baseball’s run to the College World Series was the greatest single season of sports I will ever see. A little bold, maybe, but I doubt I’ll ever see another team get sentenced to death, save itself, then fighting off elimination game after elimination game. Let’s recap exactly what happened. On Sept. 28, the administration decided to cut five varsity sports, including baseball. In a shocker of an announcement, it looked like the spring of 2011 was the end of the line for the 118-year-old program. The players swore they would end the season in Omaha, a claim any team would make in the face of program elimination. Even after the program was reinstated in early April, the Cal baseball team followed through with its promise. Despite losing four out of their last five regular season games and their first game in the Houston Regional, the Bears rattled off four consecutive victories to stave off elimination, capped with a thrilling 9-8 victory over Baylor to clinch a spot in the NCAA Super Regional. With fans packing the stands for the Super Regional at Santa Clara, the Bears swept away upstart Dallas Baptist for its first College World Series berth since 1992. Despite an unceremonious end at the hands of top-ranked Virginia, the Cal baseball team remained the talk of Omaha. There was death, then life, and with the first World Series berth in almost two decades, the 2011 Cal baseball team reached immortality. — Jack Wang

On May 13, when spring semester officially ended, the No. 14 Cal men’s tennis team began the most important part of the 2010-2011 season. For the first time since 2003, the Bears hosted the Regionals round of NCAA Championships, where they notched wins over Marist and Fresno State. Coach Peter Wright called the 4-3 overturn of Fresno State “one of the most challenging and exciting matches I’ve seen in the last five years.” After losing the doubles point, the Bears and Bulldogs traded wins up and down all six singles courts before rising junior Riki McLachlan narrowly defeated his opponent in three sets. His win clinched the victory for Cal and sent the squad to its first sweet 16 appearance in eight years. Although a 4-2 loss to No. 3 Tennessee on May 19 ended the Bears’ season, they were nonetheless satisfied with their run. After all, the last time the squad saw play that deep was during a 2003 drive to the quarterfinals. This past season dismissed any questions Wright had about the abilities and potential of his team. “It was a question about where the program is going: were we going to get to the sweet 16?” Wright said. “We needed to get back there. It was a big challenge but our guys pushed hard.” — Annie Gerlach

press room banter

Soccer is officially in, and not just for hipsters Ihlmrhnk:eZf^]Z<hngmrE^`Zelpbmanl'

Seung Y. Lee August is a great time for most sports fans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; football season is about to start, baseball season is near the playoffs and most importantly for me, the soccer leagues in Europe are about to start. After watching so much good soccer this past few weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; between summer school and fall semester â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I have come to a bold conclusion: this season might be the greatest soccer season ever. Before you turn the page thinking I jumped the gun incredibly early, hear me out. I might have extrapolated using only three weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of matches, but once you break down every league one by one, you see that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been this much talent and excitement in Europe. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start off in Spain, home of Barcelonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football kings. Barcelona has mastered the tiki-taka football â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a style that focuses on short passes and movement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by mainly developing home-grown players from within their academies. Watching Barcelona play is breath-taking because I know I am watching something special, sort of like how I felt about the Chicago Bulls in the 90s. But if there is a team to dethrone Barcelona anytime soon, it seems to be the rival Real Madrid. The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona â&#x20AC;&#x201D; aptly named â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Clasicoâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; symbolizes Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep political clashes between the capital and northeast Catalonia. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we have seen such a mix of talent, bad blood and social importance regarding a sporting match since the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miracle on Iceâ&#x20AC;? hockey match between the United




States and the Soviet Union. Whereas La Liga is a diarchic league of Real Madrid and Barcelona, the English Premier League is more of an oligarchy, with six teams vying for the title. From the traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Fourâ&#x20AC;? of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, Manchester City and my Tottenham Hotspur have snuck into the title race this past year. Manchester City â&#x20AC;&#x201D; backed by the shiekhs of Abu Dhabi â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have become the new Dubai of football, throwing money around that makes the New York Yankees look fiscally conservative. Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool has been stockpiling talent to not lose a step in the arms race, while Arsenal and Tottenham are still sticking to the outdated gentlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game of bringing players at a reasonable, fair price. All these arms races have translated very well on the field this season. Two games into the season, the two Manchester clubs are on the top of the league. If you want a top-heavy league where the best teams bully lesser teams, England is the place to be. If you want more parity across the league, the German Bundesliga is paramount. Stylistically, the Bundesliga is between the physical Premier League and the technical La Liga, appealing to those who want something different than the two. For some time, European football fans in America were like the hipsters of sports fans, following an obscure sport played in a faraway land, wearing odd scarves and jerseys of teams nobody has heard of. But that scene is slowly changing. More and more football matches are broadcast in the U.S., creating more exposure and more football fans. After the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup this summer, soccerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity has reached a new high in America, recording the most tweets per second during the World Cup final. Soccer is officially in. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be foolish to wait for a better time to dive in. You are living in the Golden Age of Soccer; carpe diem, my friends.

Having football home games at AT&T Park in San Francisco

thumbs up

thumbs down

Nothing will be as convenient as hosting football games on campus. No venue can compare to the majesty of the cannons echoing over Strawberry Canyon on a sunny afternoon. Nonetheless, playing home games at AT&T is a great thing. I love Memorial probably more than most, but there is no denying that it is old and outdated. How nice will it be to spend Saturdays (and one Thursday night) in a state-of- AT&T is a the-art park? The palm trees outside, the cove, the brick walls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the aesthet- state-of-theics are just incredible. art facility. The seating will be more comfortable, the bathrooms will be cleaner, The palm and the food will be better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that, in trees outside, and of itself, is a huge victory for fans. The fan experience is going to be so the cove, the much improved, which is important brick walls since the product on the field probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to watch subpar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be less depressed if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m aesthetics are watching it in a nice place. Logistics for non-students are a lot simply friendlier at AT&T. Parking will not be a massive headache, and there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any incredible. hills to climb to reach the stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Christina Jones Those two points may have little meaning to students who generally donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive and are accustomed to trekking up hills around Berkeley, but it will make things so much easier for our older alumni and fans. It makes Cal football games much more accessible for that segment of the population whose support we should welcome. Yes, the tickets are more expensive and the stadium holds fewer people. However, if alumni and other fans are willing to open their wallet for these football games, perhaps theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more open to contributing to the athletic department in the future, given that they have a positive experience at AT&T. Finally, the sad but true argument â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where else was Cal going to play? Candlestick is very difficult to get to, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a horrendous place to watch a game between the wind and how dilapidated it is. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s want out of the Oakland Coliseum (now named the Coliseum), which would have been easier to get to, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exactly an upgrade from Memorial. The move to AT&T is a short-lived change that adds some excitement to an otherwise dim football season. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Christina Jones

This year, Cal football will have a new place to call home. With Memorial Stadium under major construction, the Bears will be traveling to AT&T Park for their five home games. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect many fans to travel along with them. Although BART is available, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the most convenient or comfortable mode of transportation, with its filthy seats and unexpected run-ins with homeless people. When the games were at Memorial Stadium, students living on campus had the option of going whenever they wanted. And they could leave whenever they wanted. UC Berkeley students place a large emphasis on academics and like how they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to make game days a full day experience. BART is On top of that, students need to not the most pay significantly more for tickets this Since the university is paying convenient year. rent to the Giants for the home footor comfort- ball games and seating capacity has reduced by 26,000 seats, ticket prices able route, were raised.

However, unexpected demand has not increased. run-ins with Some say that Calâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new home will draw more spectators from the city, homeless but most are just anxiously agonizing the chaos from spectators suffocating people. transportation and streets. And â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Camellia Senemar Giants fans wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too thrilled about the idea of sharing their stadium, especially if the Giants make it to the postseason in 2011. A prolonged playoff run would mean that the Bears must search for a different venue, particularly for the Cal vs. USC matchup. The football players will probably feel some added pressure at AT&T Park. Not only do they have to grow accustomed to playing and tackling on a baseball field, but they also have to account for travel time themselves. After their first losing season (5-7) in head coach Jeff Tedfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine year reign last season, the Bears will need to produce some results to generate enough support to transfer to the renovated Memorial Stadium. Despite the obviously dedicated fans, people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like change. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be much different this year. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Camellia Senemar

Two years ago, Zach Maynard was quarterbacking over 2,600 miles away and Isi Sofele was Calâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soon-to-be revealed freshman speedster. With fall camp concluded, the new starting quarterback and running back are the two most important and intriguing weapons leading the Bears out of the summer doldrums and into September. Quarterbacks A junior transfer from Buffalo,


Maynard was named starting quarterback on May 14, two weeks following the end of spring practice. Perhaps the most mobile quarterback to line up under center since coach Jeff Tedford arrived in Berkeley in 2002, Maynard has drawn strong reviews from Tedford and his receivers during the beginning stages of his starting tenure. Maynard will be backed up by sophomore Allen Bridgford, who beat out incumbent starter Brock Mansion for the second slot on the depth chart. Running Back For a team that has consistently lined up one of the top running backs in the

conference, Calâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running back situation can easily be classified as its most unstable in years. With Shane Vereen gone to the New England Patriots, the starting duties now belong to Sofele, a ballcarrier that was seen primarily as a slot receiver and specialty back when he entered Berkeley in 2009. Backing up Sofele will be Covaughn DeBoskie-Johnson, followed by some combination of sophomore Dasarte Yarnway and junior college transfer C.J. Anderson. DeBoskie-Johnson fell out of favor after showing up to spring practice out of shape, but a strong performance in the closing stages of fall
