After receiving approval from the Graduate Assembly on April 8, approval from the UT System Board

of Regents is the final step for a new nursing program that may be introduced this fall.

Program director Sharon Judkins described the university’s Executive Master of Science in Nursing Administration program as one-of-akind. This program, she said, is for those who already hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and have three to five years of leadership experience in the field that they want to move upward in their careers.

“This program is an ideal opportunity for health care managers and professionals that are in complex environments and dealing with a changing system,” Jennifer Gray, College of Nursing associate dean, said. “People at the management level have unique needs and sched-

Nanotechnology will be responsible for the next industrial revolution if Zyvex Corp. founder and CEO James Von Ehr II realizes his vision. Von Ehr gave a presentation Monday titled “From Lab to Market: Commercializing Nanotechnology” as part of Business Week. Business Associate Dean David Gray said the theme of this year’s Business Week is the “Innovation Economy, with a special emphasis on nanotechnology” because many jobs in that field may become available in the next few years. Von Ehr is a venture capitalist who created the company in 1997 to research and develop commercially successful nanotechnology. Nano means one billionth of a given unit, so a nanometer is one billionth of a meter, as compared to a millimeter, which is one thousandth of a meter. “Molecular nanotechnology is the precise, controlled rearrangement of atoms into higher value products,” Von Ehr said. As an example, he pointed out that a diamond is essentially a lump of coal with its carbon molecules precisely arranged. His company is applying this concept to technological innovations in materials, energy, computer technology and medicine. The Zyvex Corp. has developed a type of epoxy with carbon nanotubes that makes a carbon fiber surface for boats and planes that is lighter and stronger than old carbon fiber materials. Von Ehr said the company’s composite materials are also used bUSiNeSS continues on page 6

A panel of student leaders Monday night stressed sexual responsibility during an open discussion on intimate conversations. The MavsACT program and the Leadership Center presented the session “An Intimate Conversation: How to Ask ‘Those Really Tough’ Questions.” Political science senior Eleanor Khonje led the group discussion on what ques-

tions to ask and how to phrase them when in a relationship of any kind. Panelists included Residence Hall Association President Brittnee Anderson, Counseling Specialist Amy Zavada, United Afrikan American Men President Martin Obinyan and Gay-Straight Alliance president Joshua Little. Each panel member shared their opinions on sex, intimacy and trust with the audience based on personal experiences as the group slowly expanded in number. As laughter grew and awkwardness faded, panelists and the audience opened up. The atmosphere

The film/video graduate student, the first to graduate from the film/video graduate program, was promised by his major professor, Andy Anderson, to take the vintage-style chair with him when he graduates. “I think it’s kitschy,” Rawls said. “It means a lot to me because it’s Andy’s chair.” Anderson, a film/video professor, said at first the idea of the chair was a joke, but eventually became symbolic of the hard work Rawls put into the program. “I want him to have that degree so badly, and the chair symbolizes that,” he said. “That chair is his degree.” A selection of Rawls’ work for his Master of Fine Arts exhibition will be on display in the Gallery at UTA, April 19 through April 23. A reception for his work will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on April 23. The exhibit will feature multiple experimental films, photographs and his newest film, Loaded.

After sweeping the southland Conference’s No. 1 team stephen F. Austin over the weekend, the softball team continued its winning ways with a 4-1 victory over New Mexico state on Monday afternoon at Allan saxe Field. the Mavs (23-17) got started early in the first inning against the Aggies. Junior first baseman rebecca Collom doubled to right center on the Mavs’ first at-bat of the game. New Mexico state senior pitcher torrey schroeder plunked the next batter, senior pitcher Cara Hulme, to put runners on first and second. senior pitcher Heather Fortenberry stepped into the box with the two runners on and singled up the middle, scoring Collom. Fortenberry said her focus recently has been on relaxing at the plate and not pressing for a hit. schroeder followed Fortenberry’s rBI by pegging another Maverick hitter, senior catcher samantha Chumchal, and loading the bases for freshman pitching sensation teri Lyles. Lyles singled down the left-field line, scoring Hulme. schroeder got out of the inning but was chased out of the game after 1.1 innings pitched. In the second inning, sophomore second baseman Courtney Zink reached on an error and stole second base. After walking Collom and Hulme to load the bases, schroeder was taken off the mound in favor of freshman pitcher Alex Newman. Fortenberry then singled through the right side to drive in Zink for her second rBI of the day. Chumchal followed Fortenberry’s rBI with one of her own, scoring Collom on a sacrifice fly to center field.

Senior pitcher Cara Hulme locks on to a pitch during Monday afternoon’s game against New Mexico State at Allan Saxe Field. Hulme pitched seven innings allowing only five hits and one run improving her over all wins to 12 games.

Hulme ran into some trouble in the top of the third inning. With New Mexico state junior second baseman Kylie randall on second, New Mexico state junior outfielder Kandis Jones reached base on an error, advancing randall to third. New Mexico state sophomore outfielder tiare Jennings then reached base on another Maverick error, scoring randall. Hulme stopped the rally by striking out the next batter and inducing a ground ball to end the inning. the Aggies’ scoring stopped there. Hulme moved through the rest of the game with ease. Hulme said one pitch was basically all she needed to work through the rest of the lineup.

“I went with my fastball,” she said. “they couldn’t catch up with it on the outside corner.” the Mavericks didn’t score after the second inning, but the four runs they put on the board to start the game were all that were needed. Head coach Debbie Hedrick said she was pleased with her team’s ability to fight through its fourth game in three days. “When you have a tough weekend, and you’re mentally and physically exhausted, it’s most difficult to come out and maintain that level of play,” she said.

Baseball America, a prestigious baseball publication, released its Mid-season All-America team this past weekMichael Choice, junior outfielder end, and Choice was pegged as one of three outfielders on the team. Only 15 players in the nation are named to the team, putting Choice in good company. Choice, who has reached base in 44 straight games dating back to last season, is hitting .398 with 11 homers and a .553 on-base percentage. Choice’s 39 walks so far this season have proved that he isn’t simply a free-swinger, but instead a patient hitter able to draw walks — a coveted asset by major league scouts. Choice is projected by many to be a first-round selection in the 2010 MLB Draft, which would be the highest a UTA player has ever been drafted. — Sam Morton

He battled for seven innings and allowed six runs but kept the Mavericks in position for a comeback. “He didn’t have his best stuff,” junior catcher Chad Comer said. “the breaking ball wasn’t biting, but when he would get into jams, he reared back and made the pitch we needed.” Comer would deliver exactly what the Mavericks needed on Friday night, blasting a ninth-inning, tworun bomb over the left-field scoreboard of pat Kenelly Diamond to give the Maver-

The men’s tennis team defeated Utah 5-2 Friday afternoon at the Tennis Center. The win improves the Mavs to 7-10 overall. The Mavs were swept by the Utes in doubles. Being down 1-0, however, gave the Mavs some motivation. The Mavs came out slow in the No. 1 – 3 spots. Senior captain Dmitry Minkin, sophomore Mindaugas Celedinas and junior Brieuc Hamon lost their first sets. Minkin, who battled against Phillip Eilers, had a tough time settling in. “I wasn’t playing bad,” Minkin said. “The guy had a good serve and I struggled.” However, in the second set Minkin dominated Eilers 6-0 and didn’t look back. Minkin ended the match defeating Eilers 6-4 in the last set. “I finally got my serve in quicker,” he said. Celedinas was also slow as he lost the first set to Jason Smits 3-6. He then bounced back against Smits, defeating him The Shorthorn:Andrew Buckley 6-4 in the second.

The women’s tennis team ended their Southland Conference season by defeating conference foe Central Arkansas on Monday 4-0 at Tennis Center. The Mavericks finished the conference with a 9-1 record. The loss gave the Bears their 10th SLC loss of the season. The Mavs dominated both in doubles and singles play. In doubles, the Mavs swept all three matches, giving them the early 1-0 lead in the point standings. In the singles competition, the Mavs easily defeated the Bears with three straight singles victories. Sophomore Maria Martinez-Romero, who is now 10-1 in SLC, said Central Arkansas was a much weaker team. “Compared to Northwestern, I was not as nervous,” she said. Martinez-Romeo defeated Central Arkansas sophomore Allison Hartman 6-0, 6-1. On Saturday, the women’s quest for an undefeated season was by Northwestern State. The Mavs lost 6-1. The Mavs, who were led by MartinezRomero, was also unable to have backto-back undefeated seasons as she lost to Northwestern State junior Kathrin Lange 5-7 7-6 (8-6). Head coach Diego Benitez said the team has fought hard throughout the season. “The girls did great,” he said. “We were beat up all season.” Benitez said injuries were a factor but didn’t stop them from playing well throughout. Junior Daiana Negreanu was the only Mav to record a singles victory. She defeated freshman Andrea Nedorostova 6-4, 7-5. Benitez said after the match, the girls will be given a couple of days off. “I got to make sure everyone is resting,” he said. The Mavs will have one last match against No.1 ranked team Baylor at 5 p.m. on April 21 in Waco before the tournament. The tournament will take place on April 23-24 in Corpus Christi. The Mavs are not sure who they will play in the first round as teams are still competing for spots in the standings.

Thapa said the women in her group had to get together as early as 4 a.m. at times to rehearse due to conflicting schedules. Civil engineering freshman Carmen Jones said the Nepalese performances were one of the reasons she attended the extravaganza. “My roommate is from Nepal, and I want to see where she comes from,” Jones said. Amrita Pal, a Hindu Students Council member, walked onto the stage singing a famous Bollywood song previously sung by Muslim singers and wore a bright pink salwar. Pal said she chose the song to represent a cross between cultures, and to show that Hindus and Muslims can get together. “We do actually love them,” Pal said. Raffles were announced between performances. Ticket numbers were called, and the first winner was nursing freshman Alysse Reams who won a pink ISO T-shirt. Following Reams, Poornima Gururaj, a computer science graduate student, won a $25 Walmart gift card. Electrical engineering alumnus Harvey Tsang won a Starbucks gift bag that contained biscotti, a coffee mug and a bag of coffee. Muslim Student Association members, dressed in blue jeans, black shoes, black T-shirts and a checkered hutta, took the stage to perform the dabka with an exorbitant amount of energy. Bowing down and bringing their heads back up, stomping and kicking their feet from side to side, MSA extracted enthusiasm from the crowd. “We just sweat, sweat, sweat until we gave a good performance,” MSA president Niddal Abedrabbo said. The Fine Arts Society of India, Bangladesh Student Organization and Latin American Student Organization also performed during the extravaganza. History sophomore Krystina Morris said that the NSA performances were her favorite because of their uniqueness. Morris also said she feels the extravaganza is important because it highlights UTA’s diversity. “Not so many people know that over 130 countries are represented by the students here,” she said. ISO members were the last to perform. Students laughed and clapped when the members danced to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” In all, ISO members participated in six different performances spanning different cultures.

in making bats, golf club shafts and bicycles that are lighter and have been shown to have a 15 percent improvement of performance over older materials. “Fifteen percent may not seem like much, but it’s the difference in performance you might see between a top high school athlete and an Olympic athlete,” he said. According to the presentation, there are myriad future applications for the technology his company is developing, but the technology itself is in the early stages and he has hopes for future applications. He is currently using capital from other investments to fund research in the application of molecular nanotechnology, but said he believes in its potential. “I’ve invested more than any human on the planet in nanotech,” Von Ehr said. Though, he said he isn’t investing in U.S. nanotechnology companies at the moment due to the current economic climate and administration policies. Von Ehr gave his presentation before students in the College of Business, many of whom are working toward a Master of Business Administration. Adam Reiling, Master of Business Administration student, said he found the business aspects of the technology and its applications intriguing. “I want to work in the golf component industry,” he said. “And I’m an avid golfer, so I was really interested in the composite material used in the club shafts he talked about.”

Not everyone was as impressed with the business applications, however. “He’s an entrepreneur,” said Justin Rader, Master of Business Administration student. “He’s trying to sell his product, but I’m not sure he has the technology or the market for it yet, though the possibilities are there.” JuStin Sharp

Trust and the right time to talk to one’s partner about sexually transmitted infections came up in conversation. The group decided that intimacy transcends the bedroom. Female group members in particular stressed the importance of men engaging them in these conversations before sexual encounters. “This felt needed,” marketing graduate student Victor Momoh said. “People need an environment in which to ask questions.” As the conversation shifted seamlessly between topics, the audience began to bring up new questions to the panel about when

ules.” Students selected will be able to work on courses from home, as it’s an online program that will be taught by nationally-known faculty. The program is aimed at those who want to move upward but lack the skill set to do so, Judkins said. Mary Schira, Nursing associate dean, said the program is Judkins’s brainchild. Judkins said she hopes this degree plan will become the standard for schools across the nation. When designing this program, she looked at the university’s current Executive Master of Business Administration program. EMSN is self sustaining and includes two project weekends and a 14-day international trip. “We want to visit an English speaking country on our first cohort,” Judkins said.

“We are looking at countries with a national health plan. Students can look at other systems, see the pros and cons, and bring that knowledge back to their own professions.” The countries that are being considered are Great Britain, Denmark and Sweden. In Great Britain, students would study at the Royal College of Nursing in either London or Manchester. In Denmark, students would study in Copenhagen. Project weekends will be at local hospitals in the DallasFort Worth area. One course being considered for the program is on designing innovative environments. This course will educate students in productivity, staffing, technology and patient safety. A key part of this course includes students learning how to design an environment that is safe for patients and nurses. WilliaM JohnSon
