UCSD Chancellor Robert C. Dynes announced last Wednesday that, come Feb. 23, Sid Karin, the founding director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, would become the new senior strategic advisor to the director of the center. Additional changes include Francine Berman signing on as new director of SDSC and NPACI. Karin has served as the director of the center for 16 years and has made the center an internationally respected laboratory for computational science and technology. He was also instrumental in the successful proposal that lead to UCSD’s hosting of NPACI. After Karin’s significant contributions, he desired to return to hands-on research, and the new position will allow him to do so. Berman has worked with UCSD since 1984 and was the founder of UCSD’s Parallel Computation and Grid Computing Laboratories. Power Conservation Saves UCSD More Than $8,000 a Day The Office of the Vice Chancellor announced Friday that through campuswide efforts to conserve power by shutting off lights and appliances, UCSD saved 10 percent in energy. This helped all Californians keep their lights on and has led to a savings of over $8,000 per day for the university, which is the third-largest consumer of electricity in San Diego Gas & Electric’s territory. The state electric system operator has replaced the Stage 3 emergency, which lasted for 29 consecutive days, with a less critical Stage 1 emergency. Jack Hug of the Office of the Vice Chancellor emphasized that the crisis is not over and that continued cooperation by the campus will be necessary to further the progress during the remainder of California’s energy crisis. UCSD Helps Parents Prepare Their Children for College “”Enhancing Student Preparation for College,”” a conference offered to San Diego parents to help them prepare their children for college, will take place on Saturday, March 31 at Woodland Park Middle School at 8:30 a.m. The Early Academic Outreach Program at UCSD will sponsor the conference, which is aimed at familiarizing local parents about the college application process, admission requirements and other education options in California besides the University of California. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. For reservations or more information, contact Jackson at (858) 822-4252 or [email protected] by Monday, March 19. Atkinson Urges Students to Take Advantage of CalGrants UC President Richard C. Atkinson urged students Friday to take advantage of the state’s CalGrant program, which provides million of dollars in financial aid to California college students every year, before the March 2 application deadline. Atkinson stressed that students meeting the requirements could possibly have their total tuition needs met and that unlike loans, grants do not need to be repaid. The CalGrant program pays up to $9,700 toward tuition and fees to students attending private institutions and up to $1,550 for those attending California community colleges. Some basic requirements for the program include being a legal California resident, attending a qualifying California post-secondary institution, being enrolled at least half-time and not being in default on a student loan. The programs offer both “”A”” and “”B”” grants, given depending on a student’s education status and grade point average. ...

Student Athletes Voice Concerns at Open Forum

UCSD students gathered Thursday evening to express concern over the increasing difficulties of balancing academics and intercollegiate athletics. The open forum, held at the J.K. Wood conference room on the Warren campus, was sponsored by the Warren College Community Development Council. Suzie Asfoor of the Community Development Council organized the forum to begin a dialogue between student athletes, the athletic department and the UCSD administration on how they can come together to better serve the needs of student athletes. UCSD Athletic Director Earl Edwards, Assistant Athletic Director Ken Grosse and Warren College Provost David Jordan were present to respond to the numerous issues and questions brought forth by those in attendance. The fundamental problem is that there is no university-wide policy concerning missed class work due to travel and competition. Professors have full jurisdiction over the academic procedures in their class and this leads to varying standards for different students, resulting in confusion. The forum was an attempt to better understand these problems so they can be corrected. Student athletes spoke of the problems that occur when intercollegiate competitions occur simultaneously with classes and exams. Most of the time, when athletes have to miss an exam due to travel, professors allow them to take exams prior to departure or upon return. The main concern among athletes in attendance was having to choose between taking an exam or participating in a competition. Men’s tennis team captain Everett Schroeter noted that his team has been at less than full strength on numerous occasions because of players needing to take exams for which professors would not allow a compromise. Another problem addressed was compulsory attendance policies in mandatory classes such as Dimensions of Culture and Making of the Modern World. With priority registration, many conflicts have been avoided, but they still occur. Student athletes will often use their allowable absences on game days or travel, hoping they do not actually get sick and need to be absent from class. The general consensus among student athletes at the forum was that academics have and always will take precedence over athletics, but compromise should not be such an uphill battle. Student athletes complained that some professors are under the impression that athletes at UCSD are athletes firsts and scholars second. Jordan, Edwards and Grosse made it clear that the opposite is true. Caroline Kim of the Resident Dean Advisory Board also said that the forum had been beneficial. “”This was a good starting point to educate athletes,”” Kim said. “”This is an issue that can be resolved, but we have to work on it.”” ...

Juvenile Cancels, F.o.N. Fills In at Winterfest Friday

Despite the cold winter weather outside, F.o.N., Sprung Monkey and Lucy Pearl warmed up the stage for all in attendance at Winterfest Friday night. “”With the lineup change, I think the committee did a good job putting it together,”” said A.S. Festival Committee member Mike Hayes. The committee that organized the concert stated that the show was supposed to feature rap group Juvenile, who canceled when its lead singer became ill. “”Juvenile said he had an ear infection and couldn’t fly from Miami on Thursday,”” said A.S Co-Festivals Coordinator Priya Mohan. “”So Thursday morning until Thursday night, we tried to find another band but it didn’t happen.”” Once Juvenile canceled, F.o.N signed on to play the opening set as Lucy Pearl became the lead act. Some of those in attendance deemed it unfortunate that only a small crowd showed up for F.o.N.’s performance. “”It was good, although there weren’t really enough people there yet to give them the credit they deserved,”” said Muir sophomore Puum Sill. “”The drummer kicks ass and I think he’s only like 11.”” Similar sentiments were expressed about Lucy Pearl. The band performed 15 songs, including their Grammy-nominated song, “”I Want to Dance Tonight.”” “”It didn’t seem like there were too many people there at the show,”” said Marshall sophomore Jeff Lee. “”It seemed strange to me since they are pretty well-known and they put on a good show.”” Regardless, the band members themselves said the crowd supported them well, which made it easier to have a good performance. “”I loved the crowd,”” said Joi, the lead singer for Lucy Pearl. “”Everybody was really cool, especially since most did not know me.”” Lucy Pearl’s set did, however, have some technical difficulties. During a part of their performance the front speakers did not work due to California’s current power shortage. Even so, Joi said the crowd was not impacted by such problems. “”I thought the performance was cool,”” she said. “”It was a lot of energy and good. I usually don’t like to play in gymnasiums because the sound is so shitty, but even with the technical difficulties, the crowd was still responsive and they must have heard something they liked.”” In between the sets of Sprung Monkey and Lucy Pearl, each college presented a short skit on stage designed to increase the participation and energy of the audience. Although no college was declared the winner, Mohan said the event, “”Mascot Mayhem,”” accomplished what it was designed to do. “”It was nice to see some creative, crazy people at UCSD who wanted to entertain the students,”” she said. “”[Each college] had a good time with them and the crowd had a good time right along with them.”” As part of the skits, Muir College Council Chair Cristina Villegas performed onstage as cupid to advertise the upcoming A.S. Loveline event featuring Dr. Drew and Adam Corrola March 7. For some, this was one of the highlights of the show. “”I want to see that cupid at Loveline right here at RIMAC in her suit,”” said Revelle junior Tarun Bajaj. However, not everyone was in agreement over the success of this year’s Winterfest. “”The night as a whole was a let down,”” said Muir sophomore Rob Buckley. “”I wish I went to the library.”” The answer to such complaints may be an increased budget for the festivals staff. “”The programming staff really can’t go out and get a big name because they are financially limited as to who they can get,”” said Marshall junior Bryan Fisher. “”It would serve everyone’s needs if the school budgeted them more money and they put on a great show. If they do a good job with the money they get now, imagine what would happen with increased funding.”” ...

Event Celebrates Black History

Hundreds of people gathered in the Price Center Plaza last Thursday at noon to watch the Black History Celebration. The event was part of a move to increase student awareness of African Americans’ contributions to American history as part of Black History Month. The celebration featured various acts displaying cultural traditions that originated from the African continent, ranging from African stilt walkers and Bomani drummers to a step show put on by the students of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and a performance by the UCSD Gospel Choir. The boys and girls of Keiller Middle School were also on hand to perform a montage entitled “”Facing the Rising Sun.”” During this presentation, Mrs. Davis and her sixth grade students took center stage in the Price Center Plaza and electrified the crowd by reading from the works of various African-American poets, writers and leaders, including Harriet Tubman and Langston Hughes. One such student was Deandre Lester, a sixth grader at Keiller Middle School, who passionately read two poems written by Langston Hughes, an African American poet who became popular during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. “”I think it was a really good presentation,”” Lester said. “”I was [nervous] at first, but then after I said my first part I wasn’t that nervous.”” The children’s performance was well received by the crowd, which consisted of students, parents and university employees. One spectator was Kristin LeAndre, a university employee who admits she came to see the step show, but was impressed by the children’s performance. “”I thought it was great, the kids were wonderful,”” LeAndre said. “”They were very articulate [for] a middle school.”” The Marshall Dean of Student Affairs, Ashanti Houston Hands, who served as the MC for the event, feels that black history is an important part of America’s past. “”Today is the celebration of Black History Month and African American culture,”” Hands said. “”We just wanted to provide the opportunity for our campus to be exposed to all the rich tradition through music, dance and the spoken word.”” For many students, the celebration of black history is truly important. African Americans’ role in American history is often minimized or, in some cases, forgotten. “”We can certainly always do more,”” Hands said. “”I think we do make a nice effort on campus, but I think when we really feel that the level of diversity has been achieved that we would all anticipate, [black history] would be woven into the overall curriculum and not just be a specific department or separate issue.”” Nneka Udoh, a Warren junior, admits being troubled that black history is not always seen as a part of American history. “”Black history is American history, and I don’t understand why we have to take the time to celebrate black history on this token month,”” Udoh said. “”Why can’t we celebrate black history every single day?”” The Black History Celebration was sponsored in part by Marshall college and the Cultural Association Uniting Students through Education, better known as C.A.U.S.E. ...

Briefly

The new California Spatial Reference Center, which uses Global Positioning System technology to monitor California’s environment, was dedicated Monday at its headquarters at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. There are more than 40 organizations that will use the center, including the Cecil H. and Ida M. Green Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at Scripps, Caltrans, the California Land Surveyor’s Association, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the U.S. Geological Survey, and Orange County’s Public Facilities and Resources Department. UCSD Professor Looks Into High Altitude Effects Frank Powell, UCSD professor of physiology and director of the University of California’s White Mountain Research Station, has organized a program to study the effects of high altitude on humans and the environment. Mountain research has significant implications for heart and lung diseases. Powell and his colleagues presented their findings at the annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Science Feb. 18. Powell and his fellow researchers study hypoxia, a factor that limits humans’ oxygen intake at high altitudes, and their findings may lead to treatment for people who suffer from hypoxia at sea level as a result of heart or lung disease. UCSD School of Medicine to Offer Classes for Seniors The Scripps Institution of Oceanography held its annual Surf Bowl Feb. 10. Each year, local high schools compete in the competition to demonstrate their mastery of the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, technology, the social sciences and geography, by answering questions. La Jolla High School’s first team placed first in the event and will continue on to the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. Dana Hills High School came in second, and La Jolla High School’s second team came in third. Poway High School received the Best Sportsmanship Award, which was decided by all the participating high schools. The National competition will be held in Miami Beach, Fla., in April. In that competition, La Jolla will compete against 18 other teams that won their own regional competitions.

Navidad Virus Sent Out by UCSD Visual Arts Server

Earlier this week the “”Navidad”” virus was unintentionally sent via e-mail to hundreds of students on a visual arts mailing list. The e-mail’s subject line read “”Grad Show!”” and contained the attached file navidad.exe, which is a virus that distributes itself through address books in Microsoft Outlook Express. According to ResNet Coordinator Erik Strahm, when downloaded, the virus prevents any application from running. “”When the user tries to open an application, a screen pops up with a smiley face,”” Strahm said. “”Fortunately, computers infected with the virus are 100 percent repairable.”” Nich Ziesmer, senior residential computing consultant, explained that the outbreak was completely random. “”It is pure chance that the UCSD sender got the virus,”” Ziesmer said. Strahm said that the Navidad virus that was sent to people on the visual arts list did not originate on campus. “”Usually someone creates the virus somewhere else and almost all viruses are from other countries,”” Strahm said. He added that the UCSD sender did not intentionally propagate the virus. “”Microsoft Outlook Express is very susceptible to viruses because the viruses can piggy-back themselves on the files the system uses,”” Ziesmer said. He also said that computer viruses spread like viruses in humans and can be designed to do almost anything. He said the Navidad virus is very well-designed. “”It’s practically ingenious,”” he said. “”It readily distributes itself to millions of computers. It is unfortunate how effective the virus is.”” The Navidad virus is one of many viruses that have been spreading around campus. The “”Snow White”” and “”Romeo and Juliet”” viruses are some of the others. Ziesmer said the best way for people to protect their computers from viruses is to buy an anti-virus program such as Norton AntiVirus. He said another problem is that people do not keep their anti-virus programs updated. Ziesmer added that students who read their e-mail though popmail.ucsd.edu or telnet are at less risk, because file attachments will not be opened automatically, as they sometimes are in older versions of Microsoft Outlook Express. “”Look twice before opening files,”” Ziesmer said. He explained that students should be cautious about opening files from senders they do not know. According to Strahm, the problem with viruses is that they grow exponentially when they are distributed through mailing lists. Strahm said that although viruses are already commonly found on campus residential computers, there has been an increase in the last few weeks. Two years ago, the “”Melissa”” virus infected computers and was the most devastating virus on campus, Strahm said. There have been no reported actual costs or damage to computers infected with the Navidad virus on campus yet, other than the time spent removing the virus because people were temporarily unable to use their computers. Students whose computers have a virus or have problems should call the ResNet office at (858) 822-2800. The office is open Sunday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information about computer viruses, those that present the top threats, removal procedures and anti-virus software can be found at http://www.norton.com/avcenter/ ...

Atkinson Moves to Eliminate SAT

UC President Richard C. Atkinson proposed dropping the SAT I as a criterion for applying to UC schools, citing the test as an unfair assessment of the abilities of students. “”The SAT I is problematic because it does not cover what is learned in a high school curriculum,”” said UC spokesman Brad Hayward. “”The SAT measures the student’s test taking abilities.”” As a result of such criticism regarding the SAT, Atkinson has proposed to restructure the application process so that students will no longer submit their SAT I scores. Instead, high school grade point averages in UC-approved classes and SAT II scores would be the two major parts of the application and would determine a student’s acceptance. Atkinson suggested that a new, fairer standardized test be developed, but recommended that the SAT II be used until such a test has been made. In his Feb. 18 speech at the Annual Meeting of the American Council Education, Atkinson said that the SAT I is no longer a valid indicator of success in college. “”We know that high school grades are by far the best indicator of first-year college performance,”” he said. “”We have also found that the SAT II is a better predictor of performance than the SAT I.”” A 1996 study, on the other hand, showed that 82 percent of students who had over a 1,300 on their SAT I graduated college within five years, while only 74 percent of the students who scored between 1200 and 1299 graduated within the same time frame. UCSD’s Assistant Vice Chancellor Richard Backer said that this proposed policy would not impact UCSD to a large degree, as the importance of standardized tests in admissions decisions has already been decreasing for the last two years. For the last two years, admission to UCSD has been based 60 percent on high school GPA and 40 percent on standardized tests. This is a change from three years ago when the percentages were equal at 50 percent each. In recent years, the test has fallen under close scrutiny, and many believe it is culturally, sexually and economically unfair. Statistics from the 1998 test show that males on average perform 42 points better on the exam than females, despite females’ general better performance in high school and higher graduation rate than males. The SAT is also under scrutiny because many believe it is unfair to students from low-income families that cannot afford private tutoring. Atkinson said last year that about 150,000 students paid over $100 million to companies such as IVY West and Kaplan that charge as much as $750 per student for services. “”These changes will help all students — especially low-income and minority students — determine their own educational destinies,”” Atkinson said. If passed by the UC Regents, the proposal will go into effect during the 2003 school year. Backer said there is a strong possibility that this will happen. ...

All-Campus Commencement Date Finalized

The date and plans for this year’s commencement were finalized this week as seniors graduating this June prepare to participate in all-campus commencement ceremonies and college graduation rites on the same day for the first time in recent history. David Pilz Guardian The three graduate programs will conclude earlier in June, whereas the five undergraduate colleges will hold their events on Sunday, June 17, along with a campus-wide ceremony on RIMAC field. Previously, the five colleges had events spread across a weekend and only in recent years have all-campus ceremonies been held. This year’s speaker will be Dr. Patch Adams, best known by Robin Williams’ portrayal of his holistic approach to medicine in the 1998 film bearing his name. Students may remember that last year’s all-campus ceremony had to be canceled at the last minute, as Maya Angelou unexpectedly faced double knee surgery. Previous speakers have included then-President Bill Clinton in 1997 and House Speaker Newt Gingrich in 1998. A.S. President Doc Khaleghi and Festivals Coordinator Scott Mantell have pursued speakers and worked on invitation letters since last summer in an attempt to secure a keynote speaker for the all-campus event. One of the first on the list was Adams. “”All-campus commencement has always been a tenuous ceremony,”” Kaleghi said. “”Securing support from the administration was difficult, and we had a limited time to publicize it.”” Over the summer the A.S. Council worked to make certain the chancellor and provosts supported the idea. After acquiring their backing, the Council had until Dec. 31 to acquire a speaker. They met this deadline, and Adams has committed in writing to giving the commencement address. The staff at RIMAC has also been working for some time to prepare the facilities to receive the thousands of guests that are expected to arrive on campus during the various graduation exercises. “”We have to turn RIMAC field into a commencement site and turn Marshall field into a twice-used area,”” said Steve Evans, production manager for RIMAC. Though it is unknown exactly how many will be attending, staff will set up 8,000 chairs at RIMAC and slightly less than that for Marshall college’s graduation. The other colleges are expected to draw 6,000 to 7,000 people each. In comparison to previous years, this number is much lower than the 25,000 chairs set up for Clinton’s visit, though it still presents a formidable challenge. “”Previous commencements went perfectly,”” Evans said. “”We received an amazing amount of support.”” The RIMAC staff is currently working to finalize the event budget and ordering the logistical elements, such as staging and sound equipment, and hopes to have these items furnished by the end of March. In addition to meeting with the various campus organizers, Evans will also form a logistics committee responsible for the specifics of the program. It will be this committee that sets the final schedule for the ceremony and makes decisions regarding items such as band involvement and the chronology of events. “”We’re really, really excited about this new direction,”” Evans said in reference to the decision to do everything on one day and feature a less political and more educational keynote speaker. The organizers have worked hard to address the concerns of parking, as the campus has to handle an estimated 35,000 visitors between the five undergraduate and two graduate commencements that weekend. Shuttles will take guests from the east campus parking lots to the San Diego Supercomputer Center area, though not to the Marshall lot. Families of Muir and Warren graduates are urged to park in the east campus lots, Marshall and Revelle families will be directed to the Muir and north campus lots, and Roosevelt families to the north campus lots. Visitors are advised to arrive early, as gridlock is a definite possibility. It is suggested that families plan on arriving in the morning, as college commencements will follow the all-campus ceremony. ...
