this day in
On this day in 1899, Andrea Castañón Villanueva (Madam Candelaria), who claimed to be a survivor of the battle of the Alamo, died at age 113 in San Antonio. She said she had been born in Laredo in 1785, though other sources say she was born at Presidio del Río Grande. She came to San Antonio when she was 25 and married Candelario Villanueva, who she said was her second husband; thereafter she became known as Madam or Señora Candelaria. She was the mother of four children and raised 22 orphans. She nursed the sick and aided the poor.

Researchers find mangos to be effective in fighting certain types of cancers Ann Littman The Battalion Mango isn’t always exactly a big part of students’ diets, but maybe it should be. After a study conducted by Texas AgriLife Research food scientists, you may want to increase your mango intake, because the fruit has been linked to prevention of some colon and breast cancers. Texas A&M researchers studied the five most common types of mangos found
in the U.S. — Kent, Francine, Ataulfo, Tommy/Atkins and Haden. Despite being a popular fruit, there has been little research done upon the mango’s nutritional value, leading the National Mango Board to order a variety of studies to determine its nutritional value. “Mangos are rich in fiber, nutrients and antioxidant secondary plant compounds. However the concentration of antioxidant compounds is somewhat lower compared to blueberries, acai and other so-called su-
perfruit,” said Susanne Talcott, who conducted the cancer cell research with her husband Stephen Talcott. “The overall goal of the study was to compare the basic anti-cancer effects of different mango varieties.” Despite the low concentration of antioxidant compounds found in mangos, the Talcotts proceeded to test it against cancer in cell culture.
We found that the colon and breast cancer cell lines we tested seemed to be most susceptible to the treatment with mango polyphenolic extractions compared with the other cell lines we tested which were leukemia, lung and prostate. Susanne Talcott, Texas AgriLife Research food scientist

Iran’s threat elevates world anxiety Matt Woolbright The Battalion Scholars, government officials and military officers worldwide call Iran and its nuclear operations a ticking time bomb. Iran may have hinted how much time is left before 00:00. Iran pressed ahead Monday with plans that will increase its ability to make nuclear weapons. The country informed the U.N. nuclear agency of its intention to enrich uranium to higher levels. Texas A&M Vice President for Student Affairs Lt. Gen. Joe Weber said Iran might be much farther along than they have let on.
“I’m very concerned about the small tactical nuclear bomb, or ’dirty bomb’ as it is called,” Weber said. “It’s not that difficult to sneak one near us and set it off.” Also on Monday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Iran would “punch” its enemies and leave them “shocked” — or “stunned” depending on the translation — on Thursday, the 31st anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. “The Iranian nation, with its unity and God’s grace, will punch the arrogance on the 22nd of Bahman [Feb. 11] in a way that will leave them stunned,” Khamenei said. The Associated Press reported that the “arrogance” Iran is targeting is the opposition group in the country — the

12 Days for Haiti uniﬁes student relief effort
Singing cadets make way to South Africa Laura A. Sanchez The Battalion A few years ago, just when the Gulf War was making an impact on the lives of Americans and many others around the globe, a woman debated on not going to a concert, because she hated Americans. The performance was in Australia and featured the Texas A&M Singing Cadets, led by Texas A&M Choral Activities Director David Kipp. The woman didn’t want anything to do with Americans because of U.S. involvement in the war. Kipp said after hearing the voice of Aggieland perform, she felt differently about Americans. The current members of the Singing Cadets will depart for an international trip to South Africa on May 19. The Cadets have traveled to Australia and South America in recent years and have eight performances lined up in various villages and concert halls, including the U.S. Consulate.

Robert Carpenter The Battalion Aaron Cohen, a former student who became a highly decorated public servant and professor emeritus, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters degree by Texas A&M University. Cohen, who lives in College Station with his wife, Ruth, was stunned to receive the award. â€œThe University has treated me so well over the years since I earned my degree in mechanical engineering in 1952,â€? Cohen said. â€œI must say I am very grateful and very appreciative of this honor that has come into my life this year.â€? The Board of Regents awarded the degree at the January meeting. After graduating, Cohen spent two years as an officer in the U.S. Army. Upon retirement, he spent the better part of the following decade working in industry. Cohen then began a highly distinguished career for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Cohen worked for NASA in the Apollo Spacecraft Program in 1962. After eight years, Cohen rose from materials and systems engineer to the position of manager of the Command and Service Module and of the Lunar Module. John Junkins, distinguished professor for the department of aeronautical engineering at A&M, said Cohenâ€™s work in the Apollo program was groundbreaking and difficult. â€œThe 1960s Apollo era is widely recognized as a golden era of humankindâ€™s engineering innovation,â€? Junkins said. â€œIt was a time when Aaron Cohen and a small group of other key players led our young space program to solve numerous daunting problems en route to the 1969 lunar landing and Armstrongâ€™s â€˜one small step for man ...â€™â€? Cohen contributed to all six lunar landings while serving in the Apollo program. In 1972, Cohen left Apollo to take charge of the Orbiter Space Shuttle Program. In this

position, he directed the design, development, production and flight testing of the shuttle. In 1986, Cohen became director of the Johnson Space Center in Houston. After seven years, Cohen was appointed Cohen acting deputy administrator of NASA, the second highest position in the organization. When Cohen retired from NASA in 1993, his departure prompted praise and respect from then-NASA Administrator Dan Goldin. â€œAaron represents all of the finest you could hope for in a government servant,â€? Goldin said. â€œHe has brought technical excellence, integrity, dedication and leadership to the Johnson Space Center and NASA. His career serves as an example to us all, and he leaves behind a lasting legacy.â€? After leaving NASA, Cohen returned to A&M where he taught senior level courses for many years in the mechanical engineering department. Rodrigo Garza, a senior mechanical engineering major and recent Craig C. Brown Outstanding Senior Engineer designee, commended Cohenâ€™s decision to return to teaching. â€œLifetime accomplishments like Cohenâ€™s should act as an inspiration to set high goals throughout our lives. His decision to return to academia is particularly commendable, especially because after such a successful career, he decided to spread his knowledge and plant seeds in new generations of engineers.â€? Cohen said of the opportunity to teach at A&M, â€œIt was absolutely the right thing to do. â€œI had always thought about one day working with engineering students,â€? Cohen said. â€œHaving this second career exceeded all of my expectations. To serve on the faculty as the H.B. Zachry Professor of Engineering was a high honor and I treasured it.â€?

Give the gift of blood
Over the years, Cohenâ€™s exemplary careers with both NASA and A&M have merited virtually every honor the University can bestow.
â—— College of Engineering Alumni Award in 1987 â—— Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1989 â—— Academy of Distinguished Graduates in 1992 â—— Professor Emeritus upon his retirement in 2000 â—— twice honored by a standing president of the United States with the Presidential Rank of Distinguished Executive â—— four-time recipient of NASAâ€™s highest commendation, the NASA Distinguished Service Medal. â—— â€œWhen we ďŹ rst met during the 1970s, I was struck by the fact that his intellect, his high degree of technical competence and his â€˜failure is not an optionâ€™ strength of character were almost masked by a winning smile, a wonderful personality and a genuine interest in people. He is a man who develops lifelong friends, and I am proud to be one of them.â€? John Junkins, Cohenâ€™s long-time colleague and fellow professor

A&M (16-5, 4-4) is in dire need of a victory in Lubbock. The Aggies have lost four of their last six games and havenâ€™t won on the road since beating Texas in the first game of conference play. Head Coach Gary Blair, however, said he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. â€œAfter we get through with this one road game against Tech, we play four out of our last seven at home and I think theyâ€™re very important games,â€?
Blair said. â€œThe thing is weâ€™re one game out of second-place. Thatâ€™s what we have to build on is being positive and knowing that nobody in front of us has had the road schedule weâ€™ve had to open it up. We lost to three Top 10 teams. What we have to do is give a little credit and realize that now is time for us to step up.â€?
