H —- ■%. t Students meet new taces, new places Oil Auf jst 21, 2006, trcslmicn Shan.i P.itadia and Evelyn Yung hastened toward Memorial t iladc, hoping to catch the picnic dinner offered at ihc New Student Convocation. There, tliey found thousands o( snidents in a subtle commotion of conversations, linyerinf; in the atrermarh ot the m.iin events. Rut they had come ttxi late; all the prortered sandwiches and sodas had disappeared into the hands of the masses. Indeed, thousands of students attended this Welcome Week activity. Besides a hearty sandwich. Convocation offered words o( wisdtim from a number of speakers, including Chancellor Birgeneau, in ai-ldinon to free UC Berkeley fans and posters. For new students the campus ' layout, the student body ' s impressive size, and the variety ot scheduled events can be a daunting experience, but it ' s just UC Berkeley ' s way of saying, " Welcome. " Two days after Convocation, Memorial Ghule became a fairground for tables, tents and an auspicious canoe, as clubs and organi:ation gathered on the knolls tor Calapaloo:a. From Socialism to Rowing, the groups catered to .1 plethora ot interests. Students were also loade l with informative pamphlets and free gcKKJies, like pens, candy, pins and stickers. " CalapaliK):a wa- ,in awesome place to see all the opportunities th.ii ire lying at your fingertips and get a teel lor all the things that you could rake pan in at Berkeley. " said Patadia. " It was nice to see that there are so many clubs that lit your needs and interests. " The next " big " event also attraacd thousand of students with its free handouts.

And as hus ' as the days were, with all the activities, info sessions and solicitation. Welcome Week nights proved just as e entf il.

" Mockmils were a great way to relax after a Itms; i-lay ot activities, " said Yung. The flurry of activity certainly eased the transition into the new school year. For freshmen like Patadia and Yung, Welcome Week was about getting settled in and establishing a taniiliarir - with the dorms, the people and the school itselt. " People from diverse backgrounds, endless walking, and coed bathroomsl " summarized Patadia. " it definitely took some getting used to, but Welcome Week helped a lot with that process, because we were all the new kids on the block and could settle in together and help each other out with the whole process. " It may have brought the end of summer vacation, but Welcome Week kicked oft a new school year, new friendships and new opportunities. df i (Top) New students isit the blue 9 Gold Yeaihook table on the Campanile Esplanade.

It ' s no mystery that singer and fourth year music major Marianne Rorcndo is referring to fixitball player Marshawn Lynch, who became the subject of a cappella group Decadence ' s cmer of Madonna ' s " Like a Prayer. " In their sparkiinc capes and neon bandanas, DeCadence tossed a pigskin around on stage and threw their arms in the air in prediction of Cal ' s many touchdowns to come on Saturday ' s Big Game. " |Rorendo| ri-ally sung her hean out like Marshawn was in the audience, " said third year L ' riri Onm-akpuri. " I definitely have to give her props. " As if L ' C Riilly Oimmittee ' s Tri-e Chopping Rally weren ' t enough. Oil hosted The Big California-Stanford Sing-Off on Tuesday, Novemlvr 28, 2006, in preparation of the spirit to be unle-ashc " d during the weekend ' s fixitball showdown. Hissing met singing on this night ol entertiinment dedicated to Cal pride. The UC Men ' s Chorale kicked oft ' the e ent, with its line of performers stretching to Kith ends of the stage while singing " The Big C. " Tliey were- sixm joined by L ' C Women ' s Chorale, which packed the stage with talented singers a-ady to show their Cal pride. The e ent e en let the few groups from Stanfotd say (or sing) their peace. Tlie hissing only lasti-d for a minute or two, but the ixcasional slip ot the tongue was undersrandalile. " (Stantordl attempted ui mimic Cal students, who stupendously and creatively insulted Stanford, by (iirmulating their own " insults ' against Berkeley, " said first ye-ar intended business major Matthew Atkins. Needless to say, Cal ' s singing groups easily won die supp iit of the audience. Noteworthy, a male a c-appclla group, lived up ui II.S ii.inic witli a ver X) (x-rtormann. The group ' s skilled Ix-at Kixer, second year Juan Mariscal, and chori-ographi-d mines were surprisingly charming. Paralleling the terror Stanford would face at the Big Came, Noteworttiy also delivered a musical version of " Snakes on a Plane. " Their quick rap solo and human plane fonnation m.idc for one ot the night ' s more memorable performances. But the Srantord bashing did not end there. .After a soultul rendition of " The House That Cal Built " by the Golden Overtones, singer and first vear integrative biology major Amy Henry played the Stanford tree to a classic Cal co -er of Gr«uc ' " Sandra Dee " turned " Stanford Tree. " Adorned with a cardKiard tree cut-out, she channeled the topical Stinford snident as a vain and whine wimp. In the end. she shed her costume anvl ripped it to pieces. Tlie UC Men ' s Oaet was the closing act. turning on the charm with " Stanliird Girl " in the st%le of Billy JiK ' l ' s dixvwop, " L ' ptown Girl. " In their sharp suits, they sang of the unpiipulanrv- that a girl from Stanford would face at Cal. " The Qil-Stanlurd Big Sing Otf re-infore-cd tlie cross-bay rivalry- l-vtween tlie two schixils in a non- atliletic are-na, indicating [the nx-alry ' sj significance in the traditions and c-ultvire- of Berkeley, " s;iid Atkins. Moreox ' cr, the e x-nt helped students brush up on their traditional Gil Songs just in time for the Big Game. " I als«i thixight it was a cixil touch tliat the men sang the Oil dnnking song, " said Onin-akpuri. " I ne ' er thought that I WMiild heiir a public performance of that! " While the SingOff was one of many events for these talented performance gnnips, it greatly contributed u Cal pnde during Big Game Week.

' Make a pt st on my wall. ' Poke me. ' To my surprise, the entire design of the page transformed heft re my wry eyes. 1 not only found the answers to my questions, but 1 also s aw a lot ot information I had not quite been lixiking for - I was informed of my friends ' status changes, recently added friends, new wall posts, and, yes, even which of my friends had recently began a relationship or were newly single. 1 didn ' t e. ; ctly like the design of the new page f such some features, TliL ' ) ' I ' it ' uc ' d the .n oyv(ia . o ' ( tdea edi lo others ' Neu ' s Feeds as As of tlie morning of September 3, 2006, the News Fcx-d informed all your friends whene ' er you took one ot these actions. The first announcement from Facebook regarding this change came in the form of a blog entry by projecT manager Ruchi Sanghvi. The entr ' said that tlie News Feed " updates a personalized list of news stories throughout the day, so you ' ll know when Mark adds Britney Spears to his Favorites or when your crush is single again. " The Mini-Feed, incorporating the same sort of information, apfiears on each user ' s profile and only displays information pertaining to him or her. FaceKxik considered Ixith of these changes jersona unJ prkaic ' - not exactly w ' hat the}i kkouXA Xikc every one of their riend.s to know. B J as pokes were not as visible as they were prcx ' iously - but I thought the new format was interesting, albeit superfluous. 1 briefly pondered if other people would notice the change and went to bed. X ' hen I awoke, I was amazed at the reaction the changes were eliciting from many users who were now seeing them for the first time. Not only did the vast majority of FaceKnik users notice the News Feed (the official name of this new feature), but a surprising majority had very strong negative reactions. This was not a matter to be taken lightly - clearly many users were very upset. FaceKx k is currently the largest online social networking sen ' ice for college students. L ' ntil recently, a university e-mail address was a necessity for registnmon; users then belonged solely to the network i ( their respective schixil. Once registered, u.scrs can post information alxiut themselves - from their major and year to address and relationship status - add other memlvrs as friends, p ist messages on each otlier ' s walls, poke other memlxTs, join and create gtxmps, post pictures, ,ind so on. to be beneficial improvements to theirsite,displaving information that users would be interested in seeing in a clear and concise format. Some users agreed. A few Facebixjk groups arose in support of this new feature, one of which was createti by Berkeley grad student Kesin Rothrinrk. The group ' s profile said, " Tlie News Feed feature dex ' S an excellent job of concentrating the bulk ot Facelxx)k ' s post-Friending utility (preserving the individual ' s right to privacy) and this group strongly recommends its retention. " Meanwhile, other students were apathetic to the change. Freshman Ngix " Nguyen said, " TTie News Fcx-d feature is pointless. Do I ntx-d to know what my friend wrote to her friend (whom 1 do not know). ' " Many sniilents, Imweser. saw things quite differently. Tliey iewed the information releasixl to others ' News Feeds as personal and private - not exactly what they would like e ' ery one of their friends to know. [ " )iKtoral candidate l inah Boyd compared the tacts dissemin.iii l in the News Feed ti " screaming in a IoikI environment when suddenly the music stops and everyone hears the eiul of your sentence. " Within STORY BY Matthew Atkins hours of the News Feed ' s creation, a numK r of groups had been created in protest. In time, one of the largest became " Studenl Against Facebook News Feed ( Petition to Facebcxik), " Kiasting 800,(W memlx-rs at its peak. Crc-atc-d by Northwestern University ' student Ben Parr, the group ironically gained prominent- through the Nc« ' s Feed itself; when the group was created, an announcement appeared on the News Feeds of all of Parr n friends; when they joinc-d the group, fact was broadcasted on the News Feeds nf ' their friends, and so on. It was not long until this group ' s membership includi l many UC Berkeley students. In response to this widespread outrage, Facelxxik cre;itor and Harvard University alumni Mark Zuckerberg made two public announcements that were released to none other than even ' user ' s News Feed. Tlie first remindc-d users that the News Feed did ' not incorporate more detailed informanon. aKnit users than previously available by liKiking ,it one ' s profile. ZuckerK-rg ' s scx ' ond letter, accompanic-d l ' y ni-w i privacy features, included a personal apoK ' gy to Facelxxik users. " We really messed this one up, " he said. " When wx- launched News Feed and Mini-Fcxx) we were trying to provide you with a stre;im of informannn aKiut your sixial world. Instead, we did i bad job of explaining what the new features were and an even worse job of gixing you control of them. " The new privacy controls allowed user to delete specific announcements or .ill " ni-« ' s " pertaining to a specific categoa (such as fnends added, gniups joined, or rekmonship status changed). While s«iiiie users were lost forever, most considensJ this to K- an acceptable compromise. S iphomore mass communications major Frances Chang said, " It wasn ' t really a big deal; it was just something new, and Facelxxik shouldn ' t Ix- a big part of your lite anyways. " Even those who log nme daily on the site, though, evennially came to accept - or e x-n support ■ the featuri-s. The Nevv- Feed Ixx-ame just another daily norm.

Election day. The e words touch the er - core of our democratic spirit and elicit teelinKS ot patriotism. Well, at least in the 42% ot 18-24 year-olds that vote. This year ' s midterm elections yielded a divided (jovernment for the first rime since 1994, with a Democraric majority- in the House of Representatives and also in the Senate, after independent Senators Bernie Sanders and Joe Lieberman agreed to caucus with the DemiKrats. Here in Berkeley ' , students had a nuinher of voring options. Some students voted by absentee ballots from their home districts, but many registered locally, where they had the oprion of voting early on November 1 and 2 in the convenience ot Heller Lounge, located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union. In fact, many students were involved with the election long before November. Voter registration drives K-gan as early as Welcome Wi-ek and contmued up until the OctoK-r 2 deadline. With .ipproximately 200 volunteers from various stxident groups, the ASL ' C Oflice ot External Affairs worked to promote voring awareness. Efforts included t:ibling on campus and in the dining commons, providing voter registrarion fortiis and encouraging professors to make announcements about voring. Cal Votes Coalition, the primary ' organizing group for the drive, was comprised of alx)ut 20 student groups and facilitated by the ASUC Office of External Affairs. " Everybody understands how important voter registrarion is, so a lot of clubs are helping out to get a higher number of students to ote, " said Blaise Patikowski, the voter registration coordinator within External Affairs. In order to remain nonpartisan, coalition representatives could only answer questions about how to correctly fill out the voter registrarion form, said ASUC External Affairs Vice President Jason Chu. Indeed, clearance to table in the dining commons was acquired on the condirion of nonpartisanship. UC President Robert D ' nes ' September clarificarion of UC policy, allowing nonpartisan student voter registrarion within non- public areas on tlic campus, increased dialogue l-vtwc-en the ASUC and Ixith the Residence H.ill Assembly and the Residential 6i Student Ser iie« Programs. Over 500 students were registered because of the policy change, said Andy Kelley, director of campus mobilization within External Affairs. " I think it is very convenient for students who already live in tlie residence halls, " said assembly president Onana Madngal. " That ' s always a ginnJ thing. " Although the goal was to register at least 3,400 students, said Kellc-y, voter registrarion actually exceeded 5,000. " It ' s just to make sure that every student who wants to have a voice in the government has the ability and opportunity to vote their voice, " he said. " If we don ' t vote ipoliriciansj won ' t listen, so we need to be heard and ' otc. " Besides registering, many students engaged in dialogues - whether face-tcvface, in print online. Online,, a popular networking site, allowed users to publicize their support of candidates and issues on their " Profile. Furthermore, Facebook " groups " were created left and right to the tune ot " Rinrk the Vote, " " Ni on Prop 85, " or " ' ote YES on PROP 89! " Many groups ' membership reached the thousands.

" ity Council. Though Worthington ultimately won with a slight lead at 53%, Beier prtwed to he a tough oppt nent. Beier sought to increase student awareness of his candidacy and agenda. Toward this end, he launched an extensive advertising campaign on On OcnoK-r 18, 2006, he e en hostc l a campaign party at Blakes on Telegraph Avenue, b iasting free fixx.! and a $1,000 bar tab. The Battle for District 8 UC Berkeley fourth year political science and sociology major Jason Overman, 21, threw his name into the District 8 race in August. Although incumbent Cit ' Councilmember Gordon Worniak, 62, received more financial contributions, Cherman won several prized organization endorsements - including the DemiKtatic Patty, AFL-CIO Alameda County- Central Labor Council, and Councilmembers Max Anderson (District 3), Dona Spring (District 4) and KrIss Worthington (District 7). The Washington, D.C., native also received considerable support from his fellow- students, including ASUC senators, Greek community leaders and the Cal Democrats. Elected to the Rent Stabilization Board in 2004. 0 erman is particularly dedic ated to issues of affordable housing and tenant ' s rights. Although some believe increased student turnout could have Kilstered his share of the votes (37%), many applauded CK ' erman ' s candidacy in and of itself as an effort to increase student participation - and students ' voice - in city affairs.

US Senate Dianne Feinstein. 76.1% Dianne Feinstein, 59.5% On the bright and sunny aftcmiKin of October 2 3, 2006, former Vice President Al Gore paid a visit to the city of Berkeley. Over 2,000 people gathered together in front of City Hall in Martin Luther King Jr. Park. The cause was a rally in support of Proposition 87, which ultimately tailed despite the suppt)rt of Berkeley and other B.iy Area voters. The e ' ent opened with a speech by Mayor Tom Bates, who described various steps that the city has taken towards greater environmental responsibilitv and sustainability, including the construction ot new municipal buildings to " green " standards .ind the use of hybrid vehicles. Berkeley is alsi one of 319 US cities to indcpendendy endorse the Kyoto Pro tocol, an amendment to the Unitevl Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change currendy supported by 166 nations (but not the United States). While individual cities h.ave taken action on their own, there has been .i surprising lack of unified eflorts to combat climate change state- and nationwide. Bates explainc-d dial many past efforts were tliwarted due to pressure from oil companies. He pointed out that California has the worst air quality of the nation and is one of the only places in the world without an oil severance tax. Bates also mentioned that. B C 2007 I P.. 36 it " passed, Pri)p 87 wnuld have pumped four billion dollars into the California economy while increasing research on alternative energies and reducing; cases of asthma. Actress Maria Bello took tlie stage ncxi. introducing herself as " a mother raising her kid in California. " She expr essed her outrage o er the tact that over 90% of Californians hrcatlic air hclow state and federal cjuality standards and pointed out that oil companies are the most powertlil and profitahle companies in history. " Clearly, " she said, " there are cheaper, cleaner alternatives. " The crowd applauded when Gore finally stepped up to the podium. .After commenting that it was a heautitiil day and introducing the topic ot climate change, he said, " People understand why we have to act and yet they are puzzled about why the nation that is universally seen as the natural leader of the community of nations l...| has not stepped fonvard to do the right thing here. " Gore then ga e a number of reasons why our nation ' s dependence on o is harmful both to the L ' S ani.1 the globe as a whole. The early 1 970s marked the United States ' peak oil production; since then, use has exceeded pnxluction and an e ' er-increasing percentage of oil supply comes from abr oad. Halt of the US ' oil supply now comes from the Middle East, a region that is politically unstable anil is being equ.illy harmed by our dependenc " y on oil. The market for oil is not free in Gore ' s opinion; he believes that " control is on us (...| until we say enough is enough. " In Brazil, 75% of vehicles run on locally grown fuels, such as sugarcane. Gore said that we have not undertaken similar initiatives in the L ' nited Stiites because oil-supplying nations and oil companies ha e " managed market prixluction rates to m;iximi:e profits " and in doing so " manage our political will. " NJCliile many look to the future and see .1 limited supply of oil eventually leading to its demise as a dominant energy .source. Core argues otherwise. In the words of Saudi Arabia ' s oil minister, " The stone age didn ' t end because of a shortage of stones. " Similarly, the fossil fuel age is " gonna end when we decide to mow on to something better. " Gore concluded by discussing how clim.ite change is " the crisis of our time, " similar in scale to past societal issues such as fascism. It is " without any precedent in all of human history " and causing problems liKally (e.g., melting the ice pack that stores California ' s water supply throughout the winter), nationally (e.g., the havtx Hurricane Katrina caused New Orleans), and internationally (e.g., the potential displacement of hundreds of millions of climate refugees). L ' ltimately, the efforts of this and other priv Pn posirii n 87 r.illies were in v-ain. Sratewide, 54.8% of voters rejected 87.

Page ?7 I Features Artist depicts Abu Ghraib atrocities Fernando Boterol UC Bi;rkcli;v, Ikhuc ot die Free Speech MiA-ement, liecame the first public institution tn exhibit Ci)lombian artist Fernando Botero ' s depictions of die Abu Ghraib prison tortures, which opened for pubhc viewing on campus January 29, 2007. LiKated in the main passage to tlu- Doe library- stacks, the display featured a series of 47 painrings and drawings of the 80 created. A reaction to the disturbing events that txcurrc-d in Iraq ' s Abu Ghraib prison in 2003 and 2004, the collection tLxik Botero 14 months to complete. At an e ent preceding the t)pening of the exhibit, Harley Shaiken, education and geography professor and chair of the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), discussed the accentuated role of art during times of crises. " Art at moments of human crisis has an exceptional role, " he said. " It allows us to clarity-. To renew from a different perspective. To come to terms with the issues that are there. " The issues in reference are the human rights violations committed by US military guards. The 47 works of art on exhibit were displ.iyed in many European galleries in 2006. In the United States, they were featured at the Marlborough Galler in New York Cir - for i)ne month. Following the New York exhibition, though, many museums declined to exhibit Botero ' s paintings when Art Services International tried to organize a national tour. For Botero, a painter who has amvork displayed in 46 museums throughout the world, it came as a shiK ' k when all proposed US museums turned down the offer. In Novemlx ' r 2006, however, CLAS contacted Botero to display the collection at UC Berkeley; CLAS had read many reviews concerning the political aspect of Botero ' s work, including those citing similarities to Pablo Piciisso ' s famous and politically driven interpretation of the Spanish Civil War in Giicmica. An arrangement was made, and the exhibit was quickly constructed in less than two months. The exhibit remained open in Poe Libran ' until March 23. To enhance die message and impact of the Abu Ghraib exhibit, CLAS organized many university programs and discussions. Three were scheduled immediately, one including a conversation with Fernando Botero himself Issues such as art, human rights, torture and terrorism were addressed by Berkeley professors and visiting experts. One discussion explored the use of violence in restoring the absolute power the United States lost post-9 1 1 and how art has the ability to reject and reflect upon the vision of absolute power. Others discussed the relation of Botero ' s work to the Latin American tradition in which art speaks for those who have been silenced, as VN ' ell as the role of gender in his depictions. Botero chose to focus on the brutal masculinity of the atrocities because having a woman committing such harrowing acts may have mitigated the artvvork ' s effect. These panels highlighted the niiportant issues at hand that were not necessarily inherent in the gallery ' itself True to his stylistic signature, Botero ' s exaggerates the proportions of his " Abu Ghraib " subjects. Although often noted for his bright and delicate colors, these paintings instead use dark greens, tans and black. Bright colors were used when depicting the sadistic actions of the tortvirers through the usage of blindfolds, latex gloves and women ' s underwear. In many ot his pieces, he added a vv ' hite windim ' in the corner of the prisoner ' s cell to symKilIze sroRV BY Bauam die hope that the dignity of those tortured may be restored. The window is in stark contrast with the dark and claustrophobic atmosphere of the cell. The most compelling paintings may actually Ix those of single Ixidy pans - a hand reaching for help in desperation, a foot bound by rope eating away at tlcsh, or a hooded head with bloodied scratches on the face - that create as strong of a connection with the viewer as the tull-si:ed paintings. Although the Abu Ghraib prison is scheduled for demolition and memories fade of the crimes committc-d there, Botero ' s works of art sen-e as reminders of what happened to the detainees. Those who visited the exhibit were even able to view the images up close, a privilege not often possible at museums. Nevertheless, the issue of collection placement remains: Why weren ' t the paintings and drawings exhibited at a museum. ' Why were they displayed in a hallway of the main library. ' Some museums had security concerns, stilting that they did not want to encounter vandals and protestors in fear that their museum would be forced to close. Others, such as the Berkeley ' .Art Museum, simply could not accommodate the exhibit in the requisite time pericxi. Snll others claimed artistic difterences, even though many of Botero ' s other works are featured in American institutions. Indcvd, the political aspi-ct of Botero ' s " Abu Ghraib " colk-cnon appears to be the controversial issue. Although many are unwilling to accept the artworks depiction of the United States in anodier light, the testimony is nonedieless important. Alter all, Botero said, " An is a permanent accusation.

In addition to Ensler ' s original mimologues, Cal ' s Vagina production team writes new ones each year to accommodate different representations of aginas. In the past year, a new kind of vagina was introduced - the transgender vagina - and the representing cast member wrote and performed her own monologue. Like the other monologues, die rransgender montilogue created a one-on-one dialogue with the audience. " The most appealing part of the show was definitely the performance and the unique dialogue - casualness and openness, " said second-year molecular ani.1 cell biology major Lisa Binsin. The director and production team began preparation for the performances in May 2006, but auditions took place in September. " These women are ordinary people who come to us from a variety of backgrounds and different levels |of acting], " said director and UC Berkeley alumna Eve Skylar. " 90% of them have never been on stage. " The cast was made to consist of women who are passionate and active in campaigns to end violence against women. Since September, tlie cast and crew met every tw i weeks tor rehearsal in what were called " cunt communities " : participants engaged in discussions relating to issues of violence against women, performed acting exercises and bonded with each other. " I learned something every time I was with these women, " said actress and second- year economics major Yiwen Cheng. " I learned that it is important to speak out, and I felt so supported and empowered by listening and being listened to by these beautiful people. " A defining feature of every Vagina performance was the look and feel of die show. Every cast and crew member wore some variation of red and black apparel, and a large red letter " V " marked the stige. Outside the auditorium were collages and poster representations of what the cast thought the vagina was. From a deep jungle to a Madonna figure, these isual interpretations enlightened audience members about the difficulties of womanhood. " I learned to be more open to these t ' pes of issues and discussions, " said Binsin. " There ' s nothing to be ashamed of " The show began with an introductory video about the V-Day movement and continued with the disturbing yet truthful monologues of the vagina. New to UC Berkeley ' s Vagina performance was a monologue tided " I Was There in the Room, " which celebrated the most important and miraculous ftjnction of the vagina - birth. Originally not performed on the Berkeley stage, Cal ' s Vagina chapter thought it was important to include the piece for the same reasons as the transgender monologue. " It ' s so crucial that we open up to uncomfortable issues because they are often silendy and painfiiUy accepted, " said Cheng. The beauty of the performance was in the content of the monologues. " I felt like a lot of other productions focus on the entertainment part, " said Skylar. " We wanted the audience to come out of there and think and do something about it. " The Vagina Monologues is more than a show; it is a movement. Most of all, die Cal V-Day movement was a group effort, and the relationships created extended beyond the show-. " I think the production team, cast and crew - we ' re all a pretty tighdy-knit group, " said Cheng. " A lot of us hang out outside of die show, and it ' s a lot of fiin since we ' ve all shared something really special. " Although not affiliated widi any on-campus organi:arion, the show was heavily sponsored by bodi die ASUC and the Gender Equity Resource Center, which provides information, support services and advocacy to Cal students. Such organizations aid V-Day performances worldwide in reclaiming Valentine ' s Day as " Love Day " — love for eN-eryvne. As Skylar said, " The ' V in ' V-Day ' stands tor ' Victory against Violence ' and that ' s somcdiing yet to come.

STORY BY Grace Ho Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg When we hear the word " ballet, " most of us iminediately envisum the famous productions we grew up with: TJ e Nulcrucker, or perhaps Siiun Luke. Wliile the Eifman production of Anna Karenma is in fact set to a beautiful Tchaikovsky score, the style of dance is entirely revolutionary. Choreographer Boris Eifman has been running his company for 30 years, cn-ating over 40 ballets. He founded the Nc-vs ' Ballet ot Leningrad in 1977, which has since Ixx-ome the Eitrnan Ballet. ReK ' llious and accused ofbeing " anti-Russian, " Eitrnan sought to modernize traditional Soviet ballet into something that would reflect the gri-at changes of the 20th century. He focuses esptxially on psychological drama in the works he brings to life, Ivcause he feels that dance can be philosophical as well as ae.sthctically Ivauritul. " Ballet is a very art form tliat gives us an opportunity to perme.ite into the sulvonscious and dive into the heart of psychological drama, " he said. " E;ich new ballet is B C 2007 I Page 44 an expedition into the unknown. " Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy fits Eifman ' s passions extremely well; a tragic s tor ' of a love triangle, infidelity and self-destruction, it provides the rich emotions Eifman likes to emphasize. The characters express themselves dramatically, allowing the ■ludience to share in their struggles and suffering at a deep level. One is truly able to follow along witli each character ' s thoughts and internal war. The dynamic scenes performed by the group also lend insight into the characters ' turbulent ftx-lings. When the main character reaches her wretchetl fate in tlie end, one c;innot help but empathize, having followc-d her heart and soul ' s dcx-pest sensations throughout the entire performance. The sets, costumes and lighting also deviate from tliose of traditional ballet, adding a rich depth to Eifman ' s distincT and original style. Truly a work of art, Anna Karcnma will mm your head with its uniqueness in excxution. Highlights from 2006-2007 season Centennial Campaign STORY BY Grace Ho Bi.

Who wouldn ' t enjoy a sho« ' mcluJing incredible feats such as: ten people balancing on a bicycle and riding it; a man building a precarious tower ot chairs that teaches almost to the ceiling and pulling himself up it as he goes; a man keeping himself balanced on a teeter totter while catapulting bowls to land in a neat stack on his head using the teeter totter itself; and girls balancing dishes of lit candles on various parts of their bodies as they perform astonishing displays of contortion? Surely such a performance would receive tliunderous applause from an audience of all ages. Even better, not only is this troupe able to stun you with its skills, it seeks to astonish you gracetully and artistically: Background music played on traditional Chinese instalments, wonderful lighting, and i idly colored costumes add to the da::ling effect - and they succeed quite beautifully. Even humor is incorporated into the show, in the form of a basket of seemingly raw eggs that threatens to fell on the heads of the people sitting in the front rows. (The eggs were actually fake and attached to the basket with strings.) This highly skilled - and that is perhaps an understatement - troupe is comprised of 27 members and is directed by ll.ii Ken Tsai, whose family has seen three genetations of Chinese acrobatics. All performers were trained from the extremely young age of five. If you are not lucky enough to catch this troupe live on stage, you might be able to watch them on television, as they have been featured on se ' eral shows and celebrity -studded specials. On tile siKer screen, tliey costarreJ with Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and George Clixiney in the hit films, Ocean ' s J I and Ocean ' s 12.

Peking Acrobats Page 4 5 | Features STORY BY STliPHANIE GONG Declan Donnellan ' s Twelfth Night WlUl.llU ll,lkl |H.-.irC ' utl iM NinKi was ivrtormed by an all- male Russian cast. Tht- ramifications ot this simple by-line made ti r a very unique Cal Pertormance. The all-male cast was a Jetinite throw-back to the orisinal st le during Shakespeare ' s time. That, howex-er, was as traditional as this play got, for its cast made no attempts to play the female roles in dras;- There was no make-up or wigs or fake falsetto voices; flat chests remained tlat. Nevertheless, the audience could distinguish the female characters by acting alone. (Albeit the long dresses helped a little, tcxi.) Once you UTap your mind around the all-male cast, however, you must also brace your ears tor two hours of Russian. Those unfamiliar with the Russian language need not worr ' , as the stage was flanked by two plasma screens and topped with a banner all delivering English sur-titles in sync with the performance. Ihc Lingu.igc .iiiJ tile Iwistcd I ' k ' i were about as complicated as the play could e ' er be. Yet the set itself was relatively simple: Other than the backlit screen fiir a background and canvas panels, the set mainly consisted of a table and chair. The props: musical instruments, a scandalous letter, cigarettes and a grocery bag containing an assortment of bottled liquor. Despite all the unconventional inanities of this acting company ' s rendition, the Shakespeare ' s comedic styling still rang true. Viola ' s shy love for Orsino and awkward masculine guise justified all the characters ' confusion of sexualir . The unrequited love of the persistent Olivia and the chaos resulting from the return of a not-sodcad Sebastian further confirmed Shakespeare ' s comedic style. The love-triangle was balanced by the satisf -ingly cniel rex ' enge of Sir Toby against Malvolui. and they almost stole the show. 1 or some, performing Shakespeare out of its original language is a crime, but the cnergv ' this cast brought out of the audience printed otherwise. IndeevI, " X lat ' s essential is not the word, " said directi r Dec lan Donnellan. Unique touches like Sir Andrew ' s war cry and Bruce Lee impersonations while dressed in boxing gear hardly detracted from Shakespeare ' s Tucl ih Nighi if his intent was to make pi-oplc laugh. Sir Andrew ' s elKiw and knc-e pads were hardly necessary in his fight against a reluctant, " male " Viola, but they certainly kept the audience in fits of laughter.

No dancer emlxxiics this spirit better than the renowned flamenco superstar Sara Baras, who commands the greatest respect in her home country- and has won Spain ' s most prestigious dance award, tlie Premio Nacional de Dan:a. Her hurricane-like twirls, insanely fest footwork and acute sense of rh thm capture the attention of the audience and don ' t release it until the very last second of the show. Her enerj, ' - and brilliant smile give one the impression that this woman truly loves what she does, and that she wouldn ' t rather be an ' where else for the world. The kisses she blows to the audience mid-performance enhance her strong presence and interaction with her viewers. Flanked by her two guest dancers, Jose Serrano and Luis Ortega, who are equally smooth and stylish, Baras wins hearts easily and gracefully. The program, performed in Zellerbach Hall, Subores (Flavors), is the third of a series that began with the comp any ' s first production Sensaciones, followed by its second production. Suenos. It was a beautifully pieced show oi various aspects and forms ot flamenco, including ca.stanet work and music by the company ' s two guitarists, two singers, percussionist and iolinisL Dance has been much of Baras ' life, as she began training at her mother ' s flamenco school when she was eight. Over the years she gained more and more recognition tor her talents, as well as her beauty. She is quite well known in the fashion world as well, having appeared in Carrier catalogs and modeled for various designers. This extraiirdinar ' woman is certainly worth your Saairdny evening. A beautiful young lady labeled a prodigy, Sarah Chang is full of talent that has astonished the world. Bom in Philadelphia, she started taking violin lessons at the tender age of four. Just three years later, she won the Starling Scholarship to the prestigious Julliard Schixil, then made her professional debut a year later with conduaor Zubin Mehta and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Her great gift for music was clear from the beginning, and in 1999, still not yet twenty years old at the time, she was awarded the Avery- Fisher Pri:e, an award given to only the very finest of instrumentalists. It seems that Chang was Kirn to perform; after givmg her first public concert when she was five, she has since performed in every major music center in the world. " I lo e being onstage, " she said. " It is the most comfortable place for me. The challenge is to keep myself fresh and to give a spontaneous performance e ery smgle night while maturing and growing as a musician evcryd.ay. " She also enjoys the adrenaline rush that comes from standing Ix ' fore a live audience and the glamour of classical music. While many musicians possess technical irtuosity, something unique about Chang is her sensitive maturity in music. Often praised for her beautiful tone and recklessness in tackling ridiculously difficult pieces, she delivers her music with so much vibrant energy that at times it seems as though she were dancing on stage with her iolin. Accompanied by British pianist Ashle - Wass, who won first prize in tlie World Piano Competition, Chang brought some intensely dramatic and i nd pieces to the Zellerbach: Beethoven ' s " Kreui er, " Prokofiev ' s " Sonara No. 2 in D m.ijor for Violin and Piano " and Richard Danielpour ' s " River of Light, " which was commissioned in the memory of Isaac Stem, one ot Chang ' s mentors at julliard, who she considers her musical godfather. L ' nrivaled in style and musical proficiency, Sarah Chang is an extraordinary musician who will cerciinly live on in history as a wi man whose talent far exceeded her youth.

Once in Sacramento, small groups of three to five spoke witli either a legislator or a legislator ' s aid about three primary issues: fee increase, AB IVt and A?, 302. In 2006, Cal Lobby L iy helped influence the legislators to buyout the increase in student tees. Since the L ' C Regents voted in tavor of more student fee Increases this year, Cal Lobby Day participants once ag-ain lobbied legislators for anottier buyout. In particular, the Regents approved a 7% increase in fees tor undergraduates (5% for nonresidents), graduates and professionals alike. The 1 50 Cal snidents who participated were frustrated by not only this year ' s increase, but also the presence of an upward trend. Indeed, saident tees have increased by 79% in jsut tl ' e years. " The fact that they are raising it again shows that they don ' t have any concern or idea on how much it affects us, " said Cal Lobby Day organizer Grace McCuliough. " There is a huge number of eligible students that can ' t come to a university because they can ' t afford it. " Other issues that students also discussed were Assembly Bill 175 written by Assemblyman Price. This bill would increase Cal Grant B to cover 20% of access costs. As of right now Cal Grant B, which is given to the neediest of Cal students, only covers 11% of access costs. As participants explained to legislators, 11%, or $1,551. is not enough to cover the e ' er-increasing costs of housing, cranspt)rtation, and e ' en bcxiks. Another major discussion topic was Assembly Bill 502 written by .■ ssemblywoman Dela Torre. The bill would provide Cal Grant B tuition assistance in a student ' s first year. Currently, tuition assistimce from Cal Grant B is only offered from the .second year onward. Because the first year is often the most crucial period in adjusting to a new environment. Lobby Day participants believe first year snidents ought to receive financial support, as well. After their first lobby visit, snidents assembled in front of the Capitol to eat lunch and think Rocksrar. Then for the highlighted e -ent, the Ncxin Rally, for which students assembled themseKes at the Capitol steps with picket signs. Participants shouted for schcx)l spirit and applauded tor the guest speakers. The list of speakers inckidcd California Assemblyman Mark Lcno and Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, California State Senator Tom Tiirlakson, and tlie aid of State Senator Gloria Romero, all of whom support more affordable education. There were several student speakers, as well: Campus Mobilizing Director Andy Kelley, Senator Dwight Asuncion, Senator liana Nankin, President of Sigma Epsilon Omega Tra ' is Garcia and Director of Cal in the Capital Christian Osmena. After the Noon Rally, patticipants went to their next lobby visits. TTie day concluded around 4 p.m., with a bus ride back to Berkeley. This e ' ent would not haw happened if plans had not been etcheil out months in ad ance. Lobby Corp started organizing for Cal Lobby Day around January. Campus Mobilizing began publicizing for it in February. Both groups are part of the AssiKiated Swdents of University of California (ASUC), External Affairs Office. Other members of die External Affairs Office also supported the e ' ent. Campus Mobilizing made sure that Cal Lobby Day represenmtives tabled on Sproul Plaza almost every day. Interested students could sign up or ask questions at the event tent from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Use of a golf cart for a couple of days was also beneficial in spreading the word and giving snidents rides to their destinatitms. Additionally, members of the External Affairs Office made announcements in classes and tlycrcd in popular buildings such as Dwinelle Hall and Moffitt Ubrary in hopes of sparking more interest. There was also a group and esent. " Planning was successttil, " said Campus Mobilizing Director Andy Kelley. " You learn from the year before and you also recognize the things that need to change and you improve each year. " Some participants were enticed by the promise of free food, free t-shirt, free Rockstar and free ride to Sacramento. Most, however, were attracted by the oppominity to actually make a difference in higher education. " 1 think overall it went well. We got a lot of good feedback and that was the best part, hearing people ' s reactions, " said Cal Lobby Day organizer Caroline Szymanska. The goal is to make the e ent a tradition on the same le ' el as Cal Day or the Big Game. Organizers encourage more students to get involved and exercise their ci ' ic voice.

LBNL has unique facilities conducive to the study demanded by the proposal. Additionally, UC Berkeley and LBNL have been on the forefront ot research on energy. Berkeley invited UlUC, known for its extensi e work on com breeding and growing, han ' esting and storing crops, to submit a joint proposal to BP.

" Does the money come with strings attached that hinder academic freedom of research and teaching " that morning at a campus pres conference California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Illinois Governor Rixl B I a g o j e V i c h were K)th present tor the announcement, indicating the significance ot the deal to both states. In fact, Schwarzenegger, along with Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuinez, pledged an additional $40 million to further the impacT of the project. While the announcement may have come as a surprise to many, it was in tact the culmination of a long applicatit)n process begun months Ix-tore. BP first announced its plan to invest S500 million over a ten ' ear period to fund research on biofijels and alternative transportation fuels in June 2006. Then it invited five uni ersities to submit plans for an institute to undertake the specified research. Berkeley received one of these invitations, in conjunction witli LBNL UC Ek-rkeley has long Ix-en a leader in disciplines related to both biology and energy. It was a pioneer in the field of genetic engineering and possesses top- y velop and admin- ister the Institute was projected to exceed $65 mil- lion over a four- year period. In ad- dition to an initial focus on biotech- nology and biolu- els - the conver- sion of plants and waste materials such as com, field waste, switchgrass and algae, into fiiel for trans- portation - die Institute will have a long- term focus on alternative fuels, the reduc- tion of pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, environmentally-conscious extraction of oil and carbon scx)uestration methods. At the press conference, Malone expressed his excitement regarding this plan, stating, " We are joining with some ot the world ' s best science and engineering talent to meet the world ' s demand for Iow arKin energy. " His enthusiasm for the EBl u-as recipriKat- ed by representatives from the participaring institutions. Chancellor Birgeneau sRitc l that he was " extremely pleasc-d " that BP had chosen UC Berkeley to K- one ot its partners. Nobel Laureate Ste en Chu, di- rector of LBNL said, " We Ix-lieve EBl will create a culture where vibrant, interpersonal STORY BY Matthew Atkins interactions will generate extraordinarily in- novative energy research. " The entire campus community was not quite so optimistic and enthusiastic when news of the BP deal was disseminated. Almost immediately, fac-ult ' and students alike expressed discontentment with the terms of the agreement Most concerns regarded the nature of the relationship K-tween BP and the university. Many felt that accepting die $500 million would be akin to selling out, ignoring die schcwl ' s tundamenral pnnciples in exchange for mone ' . William Drummond, chair of the Berkeley division of the Academic Senate, said BP " expects something back |...| but we don ' t want to compromise the university ' s values and academic freedom. " Questioning the transparency of the contract, anthropology ' professor Laura Nader asked, " Does die money come with strings attached that hinder academic freedom of research and teaching.

Students oppt sing tlie agreement organized the group " Stop BP " and staged a protest against the deal in front ot California Hall on March 2. Weanng white lab coats marked widi the name and symbol of BP, the protesters poured organic molasses around the front entrance to Oilifomia Hall to simulate an oil spill. Gniduate snident Ali Tonak and freshman Natlian Murtliy wea- arrested on charges of trespassing due to their aile in facilitating the mivk oil spill. Tlie students werv later released without citation. In addition to the ptotesi, Stop BP also compiled and submitted a petition.

STORY BY Matthew Atkins Memorial Stadium is a timny venue tor Cal ' s Kmtball games, boasting many characteristics iiiLike it unique and representative of Berkeley ' s campus, the Bay Area and California as a wlmle. nesijjned by John Galen Howard in 1923, the stadium ' s neoclassical motit integrates vs ' ell with the architecture of several buildings on campus. The stadium ' s location at the base ot the Berkeley hills provides scenic aesthetics, as it is surrounded by oak trees and offers a stunning snew of the bay. Finally, the Hayward Fault passes directly under the stadium, representing the earthquake-prone n.iture of much of California. The close proximity ot the Hayward Fault poses a seismic challenge even for modern engineers. A 1 998 study gave die stadium a seismic safety rating of " poor. " In 2005, Chancellor Birgeneau revealed plans to renovate the stadium and add new facilities to accommodate growth. The first improvements were completed in the spring and summer ot 2006. On December 6, 2006, the UC Board of Regents met and approved the environmental impact report for the remaining portions of the project. The proposal called for the construction of a Student-Athlete High Performance Center adjacent to tlie stadium, providing athletes with training, sports medicine and academic support facilities and sening as a center of operations tor rwelve Olympic team sports. In order to constnict the center, the plan required the removal ot 43 oak trees. Planners hoped to make up tor tliis loss by planting 142 new trees, one for every 1,000 square feet of the building to be constructed. Athletic director Sandy Barbour callc l the project a " high priority " and indicated that its completion is cnicial to attaining future excellence in the university ' s athletic programs. Nathan Brostrom, UC Berkeley ' s ice chancelU r tor administration, also expressed strong support for the project, stating, " It is critical for the lite safety of our staff, student-athletes and the public. " Immediately, this new plan drew a flurry of criticism. Some were angry that the plan called for the destruction of the oak tree grove on the site, while others were concerned that the larger, renovated stadium would reduce visibility from the nearby hills. Tliese complaints culminated In fcirmal litigation Ix. ' ginning in January 2007. Organii.itionsfilinglawsuits included theCalilornia Oak Foundation, the P.innramic Hill Association, the City of Berkeley and Save Tightwad Hill! (which filed its own suit independent of the othet three). X ' llile each group had unique concerns about the project, thc-y all shared a common goal in stopping all further construction. Sa e Tightwad Hill! was concerned that the plan called for additional rows of seating to K- built on the east rim of the stadium. Since the stadium ' s opening in 1923, countless individuals have watched football games for free from the appropriately-nicknamed Tightwad Hill. The construction of additional seating would partlv obstruct the view from tlic hill, which tlie group claimed was a " historical resource. " The Panoramic Hill Association had similar concerns; comprised of the stadium ' s neighbors, residents of the adjacent Berkeley hills, the group bclie ed the expansion of the stadium would impinge upon their vic-ws and create an unnecessar ' eyesore. The most isible and wnial protesters belonged to Sa e the Oaks at tlie Stadium, a group concerned about the irrc-viKable consequences of destroying the oak trees on the site. The California Nanve Plant Sixrlety said. " Tills site is of great ralue as a gene bank for Coast Live Oak Individuals native to the San Francisco Bay Area. (It provides] habitat tor .1 nuiiiKT ot plants and animals that are indicative of the liKal landscape prior to European con ersion. " Most of the trees in the area arc between 70 and 1 10 years old, with one " heritage " oak at over 200 years of age. On NovemK-r 9, the group staged a gathering on Sproul Pla2a and presented a petition u Chancellor Birgeneau containing over 3.IXH? signatures. Pniject plannet Emily Marthinsen c.illed rrees " unfortunate victims " of the renovation and assured the .ASL ' C Senate that all steps were Ix-ing taken to ! .• " as sensitive as possible. " The chancellor and L ' C Regents agreed with Marthinsen that the plan sufficiently mitigated the loss of trees and opted to continue development of the project. Less than a month later, several activists climlvd Into some of the oak trees slated for removal. Tlieir ascent purposehilly coincidi l with the Big Game ag;ilnsi StanKitd L ' niversir on IVcemlx-r 2. Tlie protesters remaini-d in the tn-es long alter the regents ' decision to approve the plan. Tlie leadet and organizer of the protest, lormer Berkeley mayoral candidate Zachar ' RunningWolf. said. " I will stay until thi-y guaninlee that the trivs will K- B6iG 2007 I Page 58 prcscrvoJ or until I am forcibly removed. " Rallies were held intermittently throughout the following months, in hopes of attracting (iirther attention to the plight of the oak trees. On January ' 20. environmentalists gathered around tlie only revlwiKxl tree in the oak grove and read poetr a Ulressed to Chancellor Birgeneau. Tlie City was also upset about the plan ' s de truction of oak trees, as city regulations prohibit cutting down an oak tree within cit ' limits. Howe er, because the land is owned by the I ' L ' Regents, tlie Memorial Stadium renovation plan was not subject to local legislation. The Cit ' also suggested that not enough attention had lieen gi en to the project ' s seismic safety. It questions the plan ' s legality ' under the Alquist-Priolo Act, which stipulates that buildings may not be built m top of active fault lines. On February 9, .Al ameda County Superior Court Judge Barbara Miller issued a temporary injuncTion against the Memorial Stadium renovanon plan on the basis of concerns rcijarding seismic safety. Ne ' ettheless, UC Berkeley representatives indicated tliey would move ahead with the contracting process, seeing the injunction as only a temp )rary setback. In light of such actions, Miller later clarified her ruling, stating that preparation for the proposed work was permined, provided that no physical alterations were made to the site. Concerned that Miller ' s decision was only a temporary ' victor ' , activists continued to rally public support and provide additional criticism of the project. Zachary RunningWolf obtained an archaeological sur ' ey on February 16 and then claimed that the proposed site was an American Indian burial ground. On the same date, RunningWiilt was arrested on charges of vandalism. X ' hile being transported to die Berkeley Jail Facility-, he allegedly threatened a police officer, which resulted in another arrest less than two weeks later. Bail was set at S40,000 due to the fact that threatening a police officer constitutes a felony charge. This amount was eventually reduced to 520,000, which supporters posted, allowing tor RunningWolf s release. On March 17, 78 mdividuals stripped tor a nude photo shoot organized by San Francisco photographer Jack Gescheidt. Freshman and photo shtxit participant Marisa Schneidman commented, " People are willing to be naked and vulnerable for these trees, they are showing how important these trees are. " While only five activists acnially climbed into the trees, the e ent drew e en more attention to the oak grove ' s plight. In time fot Cal Day on April 21 , fi e students ascended a redwood tree near Sather Gate to criticize the proposed remos-al of the oak trees, along with the University ' s S500 million BP deal. Members of the newly-formed Phoenix Coalition, the tree-sitters hoped to " show the students what the university is doing is WTong, " according to senior ethnic studies major Jason Ahmadi. On April 25, after a week of tree-sitting, Alimadi and senior interdisciplinary studies field major Michael Schuck decided to accept arrest on behalf of the coalition. " The arrest is about love and not violence, " said Schuck. " It tcit right (to come down), " agreed Alimadi. " 1 tecl through non- violent action, the university will listen to us.

Wliether the constraction was to impro e an existing facility or to construct a new one, the purpose was to enhance tlie Berkeley experience tor e ' eryone - students, taculty, scati and tlie tourists, of course. The most anticipated project was the Stanley Biosciences and Bioen) ineering Facility ' lixated at the East Gate ot campus adn nearby the Hearst Memorial Mining Building. Formerly known as the Biochemistry ' and Virus Lilxiratory, the new Stanley building features a flexible layout for laboratory support areas that adapts to modern research, multi- media classriKims with up-todate technology, two auditoriums and ev ' en a cafe. " I am most excited about Stanley ' because I am a bicK ' nyineer, " remarked third-year bii enKineerint; major Ke in Hsu. " LonK have I waited tor the day when 1 could bioenKineer in a facility built specifically for that purpose. " Since ct)nstrucrion commenced in January 2003, biiK ' ntnneerini; students and professors alike have awaited the building s schedukxl completion in June 2006. Even though they were behind schedule, the construction tc-am as well as supporters ot the new facility hoped to ct)mplete the building by the end of the 2006-2007 school year. The most notice-able construction, however, was the CV Srarr E;ist Asian Library ' across from Memorial Cilade.

However, the cranes and construction noises can be distracting when you arc trying to relax on Memorial Cilade, " said Hsu. Although construction noises disairb die serene landscape of the campus, suidents will regain their peace upon the libar ' s completion in Fall 2007. Nearby, the former Davis Hall North was demolished in order to establish the Center for Intormation Technology Research in the Interest of Society, or CITRIS. Here, education and research will help provide solutions to the many social and commercial problems currently facing Califomian residents. Off campus, construction workers were also busy as students regularly encountered machines and din where ' er they went. Even though students spent their day witnessing on ampus construction, students living in the dorms spent their night widi die unfinished work of oft- campus construction. Between Unit 1 and Unit 2, the former Underbill parking lot was being converted to a parking structure with a street level recreation field tor student residents. Howe ' er, most student residents were more cimcerntxl alxiut the construction ' s disturbances dian the end product. " My friends live on the side that faces the cx nstruction, " notc-d second year sociology and mass communications major Kathcrine Kim. " They tell me that the ' wake up everyday at 7 a.m. because ot the noise. When I ' m studying at the lounge, die whole rtxim ev ' en shakes. " Indcx-d, students Knik fonvard to the completion ot Underbill not only to explore the finished facility but also to get a gixxi night ' s sleep. Improvements were also made to Unit 3 ' s dining facility-, where a sushi bar is now featured every day, all day. Tlie newly renovated " Cafe 3 " reopened in January 2007 alter closing in June 2006. Tlie facility fearures an expanded capacity ' tor diners, including more meal options and features such as a lounge complete with a big-screen plama TV and colorful modern fijrniture and lights. The facility was intended to allexiate some of the pressure placed on the Crossroads Dining Commons, which has served many residents ot L ' nits 1 , 2 and 3 since its 2003 constniction. " We ' re pleased with the turnout, " said Cal Dining dirc-aor Shawn LaPean. Students, tix), arc satisfied with the convenience and expanded dining experience. " Other people want to come dow n here now, " said L ' nit 3 resident Leyla Babaoglu. " 1 definitely see myself eating here more often. " Call it " home improxement " but students this year were bombarded by construction at schcKil and near home, inevitably, students developed different feelings around the issue of campus construction. " It seems like it ' s ne er-ending, " remarkc-d second- year scKial welfare major ' iuing Lee. " I feel like all this improvement means nodiing. When 1 leave Cal, 1 feel like it ' s going to be the same as when I first came here. " On the other hand, students like Hsu arc more oprimisnc: " Tlie campus is like a river, always changing, always flowing. Gixxl luck to die engineers and construction workers in dieir endeavors to improrc i ur fair campus. " Despite the inconvenience, construction was undertaken with students in mind. Wliether to impnne existing buildings or create new facilities, construction enhances the quality- of life and education tor Ol students, and stands erect tor hiture genenitions to enjoy.

In the past year, southside has undergone significant structural and timctional changes and has begun se eral planning processes, most prominently tor the renovation of Lower Sproiil Plaza. Often harely populated. Lower Sproul lacks the same energy and sense ot place as its more popular companion. Upper Sproul. Although occasionally used for Friday after- nixm SUPERB concerts and student dance performances, the Plaza ' s space and facili- ties are consistently underutilized. " Right now, unless something hig is going on, I ' d ne er hang out jon Lower Sproul]; I ' d go to Upper Sproul, " said Seth Shonkoft, a first- year dtKtoral candidate in environmental science, policy and management. In February 2007, the ASUC hostcxl a series of focus groups for students to voice their concerns and ideas t i professional planners. In an effort to include K)th un- dergraduate and graduate students in the process, planners conducted ten focus groups for undergraduates and six for grad- uates. ASUC Academic Affairs Vice Presi- dent Joyce Liou, whi helped ctnirdinate the tcKus groups, estimated that approximately 1 20 students were in attendance. " We ' re looking at the notion of com- munity and how various spaces either con- tribute to it or do not, " said Tom Heir, a founder of Biddison Hier LTD. a planning firm that specializes in higher education projects. Hicr. along with San Francisco ar- chitect firm SM WM. said they aluc student input in deciding how to make the space more inviting and pleasant. " TTie space is flexible for student use, but the buildings are terribly ugly, and it affects the com- munity a great deal, " said Sarah MtKxly. ,i doctoral candidate in Spanish and Portu- guese. Many students also recommended the installation of lighting to both increase safety and make the plaza more conduci e to nighttime e ent5. " Tliere ' s notliing like hearing directly from people who are using the spaces, said Assistant Vice Chancellor for Faciline- Services Emily Marthinsen. The Uni ersir . ASUC and planning and architect firms all intend to include students in die renov.i- tion process in the coming years. In fact, the University has big plans for not t nlv Lower Sproul. but - ultimately - the Mar- tin Luther King Jr. Student Union (which spans Kith the Upper and Lower plazas). " The rede elopmcnt of Lower Sproul is a short-term expression of the redex-elopment H6tG 2007 I Page 62 Movin ' on up, to the southside Southside Revitalizationj STORY BY CaITLIN GrEEN mv of the StuJtnt L ' num, " said ASL ' C Auxil- iary Directiir NaJesan Perniaul.

L ' C Berkeley ' s Cal 1 Card debit plan, for exam- ple, was expanded in Fall 2006 to include more Berkeley businesses. The number of vendors that accept the card - once used e.xclusively at L ' ni ersity dining locations, residence hall laundr ' rooms, and the Cal Student Store - has doubled to a total of 20 (botli on and off campus). Four campus res- taurants located in the Bear ' s Lair on Lower Sproul began accepting the card in August, including The Coffee Spot, Healthy Heavenly Foods, Taqueria El Tacontento and Cheese ' N ' Stuff. " There are so many places students told us they ' d like to use their card, " said Kim LaPean, mar- keting coordinator tor residential and snj- dent service programs. " For us, the major focus was getting the Bear ' s Liir merchant.s on board. " The original Cheese ' N ' Snift, located between Unit 3 and Dunint . ' Xwnue, was also added in August, becoming the first off- campus location to accept the student debit card. Other offompus businesses have since followed: UC Hair Salon on Bancroft Way; Chipotle Mexican Grill on Telegraph Avenue; Campus Market, IBs Hoagies and ZeeZee Copy on Durant Avenue; and Extreme Pi:za on Shattuck .Avenue. Businesses and students alike are satis- fied with the change. Despite start-up costs (e.g., the card reading equipment), busi- nesses have reported higher sales and have been pleased with the new method of pay- ment. " We ' c been getting a lot of positive teedback, " saki LiPcan. " Our new vendt)rs arc happy with the mcrcases tliey are see- ing hig Stores like [Walgreens] takes away from the eharacter [on Telegraph Avenue]. People come for the character, k ing. " Students, too, view the expansion as a helpful step toward making finances easier to monitor. " It ' s easier to use the Cal debit card, " said third year psychology major Le- ticia Barraia. " It can be used to track pur- chases at school. " At the same time. Bear ' s Lair restaurants worry about their fijture at UC Berkeley as rumors circulate around bringing in larger chain corporations. Although no formal discussions ha -c taken place, the ASUC Senate is considering replacing The Coffee Spot, which has been in its current loca- tion since 1987. " The ASUC is looking into how the Bear ' s Lair area may best be utilized, " said ASUC President Oren Gabriel. " As the number of student groups continues to rise, the .ibility of the ASUC to ftind these groups is limited. Ilncreas- ing] rewnues ' ft-om the ASUC businesses in Lower Sproul could greatly increase fijnding for student groups new and old. " Haitham Alloum, owner of the Coffee Spot, said the current situation is similar to an effort in the late 1990s to replace smaller businesses, which was successfully combated by a petition campaign. " In ' 97 we all stood up and we were all one voice because whate ' er happens to my ncxt- .loor neighbor can happen to me, " said Alloum. Still, he fears that the strategy of replacing one business at a time may not Ix- as easily thwarted. Gabriel contends that students ' opinions are a top priority ' ; the ASL ' C e ' en conduaed an online survey in Spring 2007 to find out what types of businesses students would like to sec. " The ASUC is the snident government and no action wil l take place if it is agiiinst the will oi the majority- of students, " said Ciabriel. Bringing in larger corporations to revitalize business is not only happening on campus, but also in the surrounding area. Indeed, national chains Pect ' s Coffee and Chipotle Mexican Grill both t)pened on Telegraph Avenue in Fall 2006. On November 29, the line outside Chipode snaked around Telegraph and onto Dunint as a large crowd awaited free burritos at the restaurant ' s grand opening. Nc ertheless, locally owned and operated Mexican eateries are unfazed by the chain ' s popularity-. " A new place is good for business, " said Arnoldo Martinez, owner of Taqueria El Tacontento in the Bear ' s Lair. " There are enough people for e erybody here. " Indeed, " experience and research tells us |...| that adding more restaurants and more stores Xo Telegraph increases the number of people who come to Telegraph, " said Cisco DeVries, chief of staff ' to Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates. Small businesses are also abuzz alxiut the scheduled Summer 2007 opening ot Walgreens Pharmacy at the comer of Telegraph and Bancroft. " Walgreens is going to wipe out all the small business on Telegraph, " said Farcxx) Taraz, owner of Campus Market and ZeeZee Copy in nearby Sather Lane. Taraz and his wife. Kaori Nakajima, expect to haw to close Campus Market a few months after the new store opens. " They ' re going to kill us, " said Nakajima. In fact, Re. ;ill Dnig Store, another all-purpose store and next-dixir neighbor of Walgreens, preemptively closed its doors in March 2007. More ftjndamentally, businesses and students worr ' about the increasingly ci rporate nature of Berkeley ' s signature strip. " The mayor is happy ti see that our efforts to revitalize Telegraph are working - that there are retailers gi ing up, " said DeVries. For others, though, " haxing big stores like jWalgreensj takes away from the character, " said EllicJa id,ciM wnerof Maxi Hair Care, which - along with Narcissus BeautN- Supply 6i Salon - is prepanng for divreased hair product sales.

After more than thirt - years of research Smoot was awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in phys- ics for his leadership in obtaining the first images of the infant universe, findings that confirm the predictions of the Big Bang theory. SmiKit admits the call from Sweden caught liim off guard; his first reaction, he said, was that it was a prank. " How did you get my number ' he asked the Swedish official, who actually ob- tained his unlisted cell phone number by waking Simx)t ' s neighKir. " I wasn ' t absolutely sure until 1 ran to my computer and pulled up die NoK-1 web page, " said Smoot, 61. " Then I K-lie ed it. " Smixit, a physics professor and Ljwrence Bcrkele ' National LaKiraton ' astrophysicist (LBNL), shares the prize with John C. Mather of N. ' SA Goddard Space Right Center in Green- belt, Md. The achie ' ement marks the 20th Nobel Prize for UC Berkelc ' since Ernest O. Lawrence won in I9?9; the 1 1th for LBNU and the eighth for the physics department. " It ' s kind ot exhilarat- mg. I ' m still kind of hyper from this morning, " said Smiwt. Tlie $1.3 million award recognizes the team ' s mapping of tiny temperature s ' ariations in the uni- crse that were formed by tlie Big Bang. " Berke- ley has a long tradition in achic emencs in sci- ence, especially physics, " said Chancellor Rolx-rt Birgeneau. " Tliis is in that tradition. " In 1989, SnuHit and Mather li-d the building and launch of NASA ' s Cosmic Backgniund Explorer (COBE) satellite to look fiir signs of tlie pnmordial expKv sion. According to the Big Bang theory, a fireball 1 3.7 billion -ears ago filled the universe with hi r that since ctxiled to 2.7 degrees Kelvin.

Smoot and Mather revealed the data that supported the theory. " They- have not proven the Big Bang theory, but they give it very strong support, " said Per Carlson, chairman of the Nobel Committee for Physics, " h is one of the greatest discoveries ot the century. I would call it the greatest, " he said. " It increases our knciwledge of our place in the universe. " The fluctuations reflea the beginnings ot the universe ' s structure. Using the data, Smoot was able to create a map of the " young " 380,000- year-old uni crsc. " Basically the [satellite ' s] map is a baby picnire of the universe, " said Smoot. Through his mapping, he has also brought more attention and ctedibilitN ' to the field ot cosmology, i.e., the study ot tlie universe. " We still ha e a lot of work to do, and that ' s the fun part, " he said. " The mystery of the universe is not completely solved, but we are pushing the trontier. That is why science is a great career. " Smoot receix ' ed his undergraduate and doc- torate degrees at the Massachusetts Instiwte of Technology (MIT) before joining LBNL in the 1970s. " It was a thrill for me at MIT but when I came to Berkeley, I saw a whole new scale of physics, " he said. " We not only have free speech, but also freedom of research. " Since becoming a faculty member in 1994, Smoot has worked si- T n ' yi ' x multaneously as both a researcher and te.icher. " He is existent proof to show why there are great researchers and great teachers. It shows synergism between teaching and research, " said Birgeneau. In Fall 2006, Smoot taught Physics 7B, for which he actually had to write a midterm the day he won the Nobel. Smoot hopes to eventually found a UC Berke- ley cosmology department, where he could fur- ther develop his theiiries. More importandy, SmcKJt hopes young scientists will be inspired to follow their own dreams, as he did by entering the formerly " fringe " field of cosmology. " Believe in yourself, work really, really hard, try stuff and don ' t be afraid to fail, " he said. - L nn K . He .inj )t hn I " .

One of the world ' s most hichlyciteil astronomers, Filippenko has lauuht Astronomy C 1 (cross-listed as Letters , Science C70U) once a year since he joined the Department of Astronomy faculty ' 20 years auo; by his esnmatcs. one-sixth ol undert,T,iduate take the course. .And tor (jKid reason: Filippenko is otten voted " Best Professor " in intormal student polls, and his cl.iss " Ik-st Course.

You learn so much and don ' t e en realise it, he ' s so enteitaining. " It is this passion for teaching tliat earned Filippenko the Professor of the Year Award, which is die only national initiative desi mcxi to recognirc excellence in undergraduate teaching. Four national vlIlnc arc chosen .innually. one e.ich troin two-year community colleges, tour-year colleges, master ' s degree-granting institutions, and dixtoral and research universities, the category- tor which Filippenko was chosen. " Research universities such as UC Berkeley are often criticized for not caring that much about undergraduate teaching, " said Filippenko. " Having a national award in the category ot diKtoral and tvsearch universities shows that UC Berkeley, in particular, and resc-arth universities, in general, re-ally do value te.iching. " Indeed, even in light ot his incredible prolessional success (not to mention award-«inning textKx k and more than 400 public lectures), teaching undergraduates is Filippcnko ' s first lore. When he ' s not lecturing, he ' s offering additional sessions on astronomy topics not cmerc-d in class. Or inviting students to accompany him on nighmme resi-arch at Lick Observatory ' .

Professor , Litwack Students honor retiring historian STORY BY CAITLIN GREEN On March 21, 2C07. history professor Leon Ltwack was surprised with a basket of apples at die beginning of his History 7B lecture. Taking iii piration from the grammar school tradition, tlie .ipples were saidents ' way of honoring Litwack tor " inspiring, demonstrating passion and shov ing care in the classroom, " according to the ASLC. After more than 43 years of teaching at UC Berkeley, Litwack, 77, received the 2007 Golden Apple Award for Outstanding Teaching. Now in its third year, the Golden Apple Award is presented by tile ASUC to one professor each .K.idemic year. 2005 and 2006 recipients were political science lecturer Darren Zook and neurobiology lecturer Da ' id Presti, respectively. The only student-conterred teaching award on campus, the award is sponsored by the ASUC, Berkeley Hillel, tlie California Alumni Association •ind Cal Performances. The winner receives a S2,S00 prize funded by Berkeley Hillel and the .ilumni asscx ' iation as well as a separate prize from the student store. Such shows of appreciation reached new heights in the days leading up to the iconoclast ' s retirement at the semester ' s end. The social historian and Pulitzer Priie-winning author, who has taught more than 30,000 Cal students over 4 3 years about America ' s racial history, has received numerous accolades, including the Distinguished Teaching . ' ward in 1971. Still, the Golden Apple Award struck a chord. " These are the awards that really matter, " he said upon receipt ot tlie basket ot Golden Delicious and Fuji apples. " My students have been wonderful and that ' s what makes teaching exciting. " Students made their support clear witli a standing ovation. " He really desenes this award, " said freshman Corrie Park. " 1 think his lectures are interesting, and I like how, e en though it is a history class, it in ' oKes other aspects. " Freshman Kaeley Loskutoff agreed, " 1 feel luck-y to be taking his class. " Litwack was chosen by a student committee representing the university ' s six colleges. The committee narrowed down the pool of 54 student- nominated faculty members to five finalists, picking the winner based on lecruring, approachability and a passion for teaching.

" I can hardly find a moment to blink for fear I ' ll miss something interesting, " wrote sophomore David Rosenberg in his nomination of Litwack. " He is the only professor who receives a round of applause after e er ' lecture. " " |The Golden Applej is the only |official| teaching award at UC Berkeley- conferred exclusively by the students, " said Averbach, chair of the Golden Apple Award Committee. " The award recognizes those professors who teach each lecture as if it were dieir last. " Accordingly, the retiring Lirvvack delivered an " ideal last lecture " on April 1 7 in Wlieeler Auditorium. This " Golden Apple Lecture " was followed a week later by Litwack ' s tinal campus address, an autobiographical talk entitled " I ' m Becoming a Historian. " " 1 was very much surprised and delighted to receive this award. " said Liwack. Bom to poor Ukranian immigrants in Santa Barbara in 1929, he became captivated by African American history in high school. He went on to earn his bachelor ' s, master ' s and Ph.D. degrees from Berkeley, where he fiKused on the efrccts of sKivery and segregation. After teaching for seven years at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Litwack returned to Berkeley to join the history department in 1964 and became active in civil rights and the Free Speech Movement. Linv.ick has asked students to continue to ch.illenge authority. " It is not the dedicated revolutionaries, it is not the rebels who endanger society, but rather the accepting, the unthinking, the unquestioning, the docile, the obedient, the indifferent, " he .said. In frict, Litwack has insisteil on tcachmg introduclor ' history courses to challenge undergraduares to think critically and come up with dieir own analysis of the past. In his ni mination, sophomore Michael Tsiang referenced Utw-ack ' s teaching philosophy: " Teaching is more than imparting information. It is a priKess l y which we seek to stir and challenge the intellect. " It is no wonder that students hiive filled not only Lrwack ' s lecnire hall, but also his office - to talk alxHit history, the news or e en music.

Liptops didn ' t exist until the 1 980s. Go back one generation, and personal computers were ery rare. Go back another generation or two, ,nnd there was no TV, no movies. We have more technology than anyone has ever had, but it begs the question: why aren ' t we smarter than people have ever been. ' Consider this: there are new inventions STORY BY Sophia Noor to help us learn, but the way people learn in general stays the same. By now, we all probably know whether we are visual, auditor ' or tactile learners. Visual learners are taught best through pictures, photos and graphics. It doesn ' t matter whether they ' re in a textbook or dancing across a screen, as long as they ' re pictures. It a student learns best by listening, it doesn ' t matter whether that voice is rwent ' feet away or coming out of computer speakers for a webcast or poj .ist. .As for tactile learners, they ' re somewhat up a creek without a paddle, because technology doesn ' t provide for much handson experience.

Page 71 I Academics Element Heaviest ever Element 1 1 8 reported tor 1 000th of a second L ClKMiiistrv ' has always been one of UC Berkeley ' s most uutstandinK departments, contril- ' Uting much to theoretical and experimental discovery and hosting numerous Nohel Prize winners over a history as long as the entire university ' s In October 2006, scientists at the UC-manayc Liwrence Li erm .ire National Laboratory carried on this tradition by uinouncinf; the discovery of element 118, the heaviest element presently known to exist. " This is quite a breakthrough for science, " said Livermore ' s Chemistry, Materials Si. Life Sciences Associate Director Tomas Dia: de la Rubia. " We ' ve discovered a new element that provides insight into the makeup of the universe. For our scientists to find another piece ot the puzzle is a testament to the strength and value of the science and technology at this Liboratory. " The element, known tentatively as " eka- radon " or " Ununoctium " is a noble gas set to lie beneath radon on the periodic table. Practical knowledge about the element will h ive to remain limited, as only three atoms were created and lasted just a fraction of a second before decaying into atoms of element 1 16 and breaking apart. Nonetheless, the formation of any atom this heav7 is an important contribution to scientific understanding, as it lends support to the " island ot stability " theory devised by former UC Berkeley physics professor and chancellor, Glenn Seaborg. Seaborg proposed the existence of orbitals within a nucleus, which stand analogous to the orbitals of electron density outside the nucleus that, when filled, stabilize atoms. Filled orbitals within a nucleus would STORY BY Rose Rimler contribute the extra stability that would allow superheavy elements like 1 1 8 to exist. Livermore scientists worked in conjunction with scientists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubn.i, Russia. The team createi. the atoms by bombarding the element Californium with calcium ions shot from a particle accelerator. When combined, these particles contained the requisite numbet of protons to form a 1 18-proton atom. Such a short-lived and spare product required special measures to confirm its existence. Reaction ptoducts wete placed in a large magnetic separator, equipped with a detector set to -cek out atoms of the element. The detector .il-o registered bursts of energy that signaled to the researchers the formation ot " eka-radon ■ decay products. Acceptance . ' l these results by the rest ot the scientific community will be especially gratifying to the Livermort lab. " I think the evidence thi- - have is convinum;, " said Dr. C. Konrad Gelbke, director of rlu National Superconducting Cyclotron Lil ratory at Michigan State University. Stil; " One has to be extremely careful with th i enthusiastic announcements, " said Dr. Witol i a:arewici, a nuclear theorist at the Universit% i Tennessee and the Oak Ridge Natit)nal Labii i ir ' . " This is not because one is doing sometl h i ig wrong. It ' s because these are very difficult iiu i-urements. They ' re playing on the edge of statistics. " Livermore scieniisl Dr. Nanc-y J. Stoyer calculated that there is less than one chance in 100,000 that the results were a statistical coincidence. " We ' re ver - confident, " she said. In 2000, Livermore researchers retracted an announcement that they had synthesized the element the previous year alter their and other labs failed to reproduce the same results in confirmation experiments. One scientist wai even fired for allegedly falsifying data. The lab ' s track record of producing new elements is still impressive, howe ' er. Its partnership with Dubna has produced four other superheav-y elements. In fact, since 1940, UC scientists have created nearly a dozen new elements. Berkeley ' s ScaK rg was instrumental in ten o i them. In keeping with this prodigious traditioi the lab ' s next goal is the synthesis of elemci I 20. Researchers, dniwing on experience gain from element 118 and others, will empli another particle-accelerator method to coax e ' en heavier element into being.

The class initiated Great Places in PARK(ing) Spaces as a means ol demonstrarin ; alternative ways for development to occur in urban centers. Green spaces and public spaces are integral parts o( communities and are often seen in the forms of parks, nature preseu ' es and areas of informal recreation. Due to the construction of surface parking and high rises, though, the option of green and public space in urban communities has been eliminated. " There are not enough public spaces in cities, " said second-year student Dan Heng. " Alternative land uses must be utilized to create an efficient and non-congested urban center, especially the construction of green space. " Inspiration tor PARK(ing) Day came in the form of a guest lecture by John Bel.i and Matt Passmore. representatives from REBAR, a San Francisco-based artist collective and urban activist group. Bela and Passmore lectured on the urban design of San Francisco, the need for green space, and the organization ' s launch of a similar event the previous year. In November 2005, members of REBAR transformed parking spots in San Francisco ' s Financial OiMrict into urban oases: They put down rolls of sod, park benches and even u crated trees. Throughout the day, people fed the parking meters to continue to occupy the spaces. Currently, REBAR and other groups are staging PARK(ing) Day on a much larger scale, which - thanks to the efforts of sixt ' - five inspired students - came to include UC Berkeley. The event was held on Thursday, September 21, 2006. from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the 1914 Fountain, an area the students marked as an ideal hotspot due to its high level of traffic from Caffe Strada, the local bus stop and the Bancroft Way-College Avenue intersection. Because of the location ' s visibility, many automobiles, pedestrians and other passersby saw the colorful displays all part of an environmental and sociological intervention aimed at changing people ' s perception of cities and providing information regarding city construction worldwide. The displays consisted of five, student-made parking spaces, each 8 ft. X 20 ft., exhibiting correct and efficient use ot open space. Thineen innovative designs were showcased throughout the day, as each of the five spaces was transformed every tew hours to display a new design. Students brought in their own props to enhance their designs, which ranged from lemonade stands and children ' s playgrounds to furniture constructed from cardboard and community art displays. The displays were rotated in order to create a sense ot a true parking space in which automobiles park their cars and People were eager to learn more about the event uhen ihey sau our props. IPARK(ing) Day} allowed them to think about what they are entitled to do in public spaces, especially as citizens in their community. % B G 2007 I Page 74 depart a few hours later. " The change in the designs of each parking space was done to provide alternative ways for parking spaces to he utilized, hut to also create a public cn irimment for people to gather and to make them civically aware about how cities are formed and how they evolve over time, " said Frick. The event was tied together by sttident Fayma Ishaq ' s construction of parking meters and parking signs, which aimed at eliminating the use of the space as parking spots. " People were eager to learn more about the PARK(ing) Day event when they s.uv our props and were intrigued to interact with the class by asking questions, " said Ishaq. " This event allowed them to think about what they are entitled to do in public spaces, especially as citizens in their community. It ' s a given right to have green space. " Although the event was primarily meant to educate the Berkeley community ' about the effects of surface parking and the efficient ways to use public space, it also ser ' ed as a medium to educate the transportation class about city planning and its stakeholders. Its Karen Fmtk ■■. ' key idea in cit planning is to involve broad constituencies in the design of plans and policies, and parking day falls within this rubric, " said Frick. " Our event provided a tangible way for students in the class to devise proposals tor improving city infrastructure and simultaneously engage the larger public in the process. " By spreading awareness about public space to the Berkeley communir . (PARK)ing Day encouraged people to re-envision the way cities are constructed and to enforce sustainable construction in the future.

The welcoming uproar upon his introduction was a manifestation of the level of excitement and anticipation among tlie thousands of audience members. From the first day of ticket sales in September through the introductor ' speeches f Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, Professor Mark Richards and Professor Manin Cohen, thousands of eager listeners were ready for a night with Stephen Hawking. The College of Letters and Science iKo played a pixotal role, with tlie launch of its new program, " On the Same Pa;,..-. " Recognising the intimidating size ot the freshman class, this now program sought to provide the newcomers u ith a " sh.ircvl intclUvru.ti L- [XTK-n c- " Pr. to . ' r M.irk Rich.irds, c. ccutive don ot Ltncrs ,inJ SciLni.c, explained, " Think about the last time you read a really great book. Then imagine that all your friends read the same book. " The program organized an order ot more than 4,000 copies of Stephen Hawking ' s A Briefer History ot Time and mailed a copy to every ndividual in the freshman class. Discussion sessions were conducted by Berkeley ' s own great minds, including Nobelist Charles Townes, Nobelist George Smoot. Chancellor Birgeneau and physics professor and Lawrence Berkeley National LiKiratory director Roger Falcone. In addirion to reading a common K ok and discussing it in organized sessions, the freshmen also " encountered " the author. On another path, physics professor Martin Cohen had been kxiking for a speaker tor his Oppenheimer Lecnire Series. After four years of [xrsistence, Stephen Hawking became the tenth speaker in the series that was founded upon the goal of encouraging interest in the world of physics. H.awking fit the bill, inspiring not only those in and interested in the field, but also those who are challenged - physically or otherwise (as Hawking IS personally attlicted l amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS). " Right now 1 feel more challenged than anyi ne else here, " said Cohen in his introduction. " Bec.uise 1 have to think of next year ' s Oppenheimer Lecture, and this is going to be a very hard .ict to follow. Indeed, tickets for Zellerbach Hall not only soLl out, but had a 400-name waiting list. Wheeler Auditorium, where the event was broadcasted live, was also filled to capacity. Stephen H.iwking was the night ' s main attraction, offering a lesson on the " Origins of the Universe. " He spoke of history ' s progression of discovering the wonders of the universe, from the Boshon;;o ' s Bumbo vomiting up the sun to Albert Einstein ' s general theory of relativity. Along the way, jokes about Galileo and microwaves served as exidence ot his wit and -on c ot humor. .■Mthough satisfied with tlie aJvanLelllcnt. made. Hawking still has high expectations for the world i f physics. He is excited for increased theorerical comprehension of physics to l-ietter understand the universe. " We are getting close to answering the age old questions, " he said. " Why are we here. ' Where did we come from. ' " Despite his mature age ot 65 and decades- long affliction of ALS (or Lou Gehrig ' s disease), Hawking is more adventurous than a common man in his prime. Only a few weeks after his speech, he tixik a zerivgraviry ritle on the ' vomit comet ' out of Cape Canaveral. He also explained his plans to take an e en higher flight in 2009 on a sp.ace plane that is under de elopment. In an email interview. Hawking said he wants to encourage public interest in spaceflight, which he believes is critical to the liiture of humanity. " 1 also want to show that people need not be limited by physical handicaps as long as they are not disabled in spirit, " he said. H.iwking ' s reception at Cal is a a-stament to how many - and to what extent - people truly admire him. His impact on the world extends beyond his contribution to physics.

" Cal UHPC is a great club because we try to give students real experience. We take a lot of classes on theory, but it ' s no substitute for actually going out in the community and doing something, " said Zavala. " We do projects, we have a magazine, and we have a lot of networking activities. It ' s a great way to get started in the real world. If you ' re just out of college and looking tor a career, you can get help through the organization. " That ' s all really great, but probably doesn ' t satisfy your insatiable curiosirv as to what public health is all about. There ' s some fascinating research currently txcuring on the Berkeley campus. For example, snidies are being conducted on genetic ailnerabilit ' , which may affect future genetic counseling, and on physical agents of disease, which may help us protect ourselves against biological warfare. So maybe public health is the major for you! It ' s a lot of work, but it ' s bound to pay for itself in spades, especially in an increasingly unhealthy, iilneiable world.

It is comprised of two departments for both undergraduate and graduate students. Chcmistrv and Chemical Engineerini;. L ' ndergraduatc majors include chemistry-, chemical biolojjY, materials chemistry and chemical engineering; double major students can pursue degrees in chemical and materials science engineering, and in chemical and nuclear engineering. For dixrtoral snidents, the college offers programs in chemistry- and chemical engineering, and a masters program in chemical engineering and produa dc ' elopment. The college ' s approach to education prtwides its students with the ability- to face the major scientific and tcchnok gical challeng- es in s»!ciety, such as changing climates, decreasing global IihxI supply, s ' nthcsizing new materials and discinering and delivet- ing important dtugs. Education and research are neitlier experi- mental nor thi-oretical, but rather a delicate balance of the two. One of the most notable features of this college is the otiier on-campus fticilities. Researchers have access to numerous other facilities on campus, such as the micmfribrication laKirauiry, the bniin imaging center, and the Liwrence Berkeley National Libnir ' (LBNU. These locations aitrad scientists not only at Betkeley. but acniss the nation.

Haas has a reputation of innovatitin and creativity- and is oftentimes the launching pad for many new businesses. The education focuses on cooperative teamwork, entrepreneurship and global perspectives. It is the basis for new ideas and knowledge, and whether it is a start-up or the existing corporate world, Haas leaves indelible impressions - even recmiters agree. The two-year undergraduate program offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Although the degree is general and the program does not offer concentrations in studies such as marketing or finance, students can graduate with a global management emphasis. This program has rigorous requirements, including one required year of study abroad. Undergraduate students can apply once, either during their sophomore or junior year, and about 50% are accepted. With or without global management experience, Haas graduates have a positive impact on the corporate world.

Such an ama:ing teat did not come easily, as tlie team ' s strategy tor success is demanding. The team practices twice a day, six days a week at the Spieker Aquatics Complex. On top of that, the players undergo Hell Week just like other sport teams. Around mid-August, they receive a " jump start " to whip them into shape before season. Nine to ele en-hour days of practice work out any kinks in their mental and physical stamina. They don ' t call it " Hell Week " tor nothing. " This is the time where the exercising becomes so grueling that our team must come together as a ' team ' to get through it and excel, " said sophomore Mike Sample. " If we excel as a team in Hell Wi-ck. then we definitely can come time tor the seastin. " Commitment is not limited to the pixil. The sport plays a role in the daily lives ot its players, who arc health onscious and fitness-minded. For an athlete, self-discipline is a must. " I ' ll pass the soda tor water or juice for example; it ' s just about Iving responsible with your body, " said junior Mark Sherc-dy. " We are all educated enough to know what is bad to eat before a game and what IS not. " Considering their le%el of athletic commitment. It ' s easy to forget that these players are students, tiKi.

" Everyone who is on the team is an accomplished athlete in some shape or form, " said Sheredy. " And there is a lot of respect on an individual basis. " Because of this level of respert, their relatiiinships are much stronger than the mere coincidence of having to work together. " We have a muaial understanding that we are all in this together, " said Sample. " 1 know it sounds cliche, but our team is really like a family. You might not like someone very much, hut you will still respect them and love them as a teammate, just as you would a member of your family. " " You can see it when we trust each other in the pool, know each other ' s strengths and weaknesses, " said Sheredy. " When you have this type of positive relationship, everything flows smixithly and seamlessly. It was great to watch the team progress this season.

They set the tone l- x:ause, besides being ralented, they are both extremely hard workers. " Indeed, Carter goes out as Cal ' s all-rime assist leader with 5,738 assists, making her only the fifth Pac-10 player to ewr reach 5,000 career assists. Likewise, co-captain Daxis is Cal ' s all-time digs leader vvith 1 ,801 career digs. Upperclassmen and underclassmen alike earned accolades.

" Forward and junior Javier .Ayala-Hil, who only recorded three points last season for the Bears, embodied this type of prt)gress. By die end of the regular season, he had come out as the team ' s top striker, finishing second in the Pac-10 in five categories, including points (22), goals (10) and game-winning goals (four). He also notched two iTiore goals in the second round ot the NCAA tournament against New Mexico. . yala-Hil, in addition to senior midfielder Nick Hatike and junior midfielder Andrew Jacobson, was central to the team ' s October 29 ictor ' in the Pac-10 conference. The Bears clinched their first Pac-10 title with a 4-1 ictor - over four-year defending champion UCLA. It had been a decade since the team ' s last conference championship, when it won the 1996 Moimtain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) title. " They did great, " said Hatike, who is also cocaptain. " I think w-e did better than people expected. I ' d say the team was pretty confident. They felt they had the abilm- to do it, and I don ' t think people outside the team expected it to happen. " Having overcome several key injuries, Cal ' s achievements are all the more commendable. The team is fijn to watch and e en more fiin to cheer tor. The Oaober 20 home game against Stanford was a season highlight, with spirited fans on both sides of the field. Securing a 2-0 viaory, the Berkeley boys made us proud.

Coming oft strong after the championship, Cal mauled Kansas State lor the first time in six meetings. Some Wildcats couldn ' t handle the pressure. Lui CaiIoii, Wildcat fonvard, was thrown out for tlirov ing a punch at our very own T.iylor Harrison. Our players were not happy. Instead of throwing punches, hit them where it would really hurt, the score board. Cal led the victory witli . 78-48 score.

The Pac-10 preseason coaches ' poll even voted Cal to tie tor fourth place in the Pac-10 conference this season. This is the highest mark that Cal has received from the poll, which in the past has ranked the team no higher than eighth place. However, injuries early on threatened the women ' s chance tor a winning season. Sophomore guard Alexis Gray-Lawson injured her right knee to an ACL and a meniscus tear in the second half of the Kansas game on December 10. 2006. During her rookie year, Gray-biwson was named 2005-2006 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and was considered a finalist tor a spot on the 2006 USA Under-20 National team. Howe -er, her injury caused her to miss the remainder ot the season. In addition, sophomore forward center De ' anei Hampton was still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on her right knee in August 2006. Named to the 2006 USA Under-20 Women ' s National team and as a first-team All- Pac-10 choice as a freshman, Hampton was the most likely to lead Cal into winning seasons and NCAA appc-arances. Despite these setbacks, Cal went on to complete the Pac-10 season in third place, the highest finish to date. " We had high expectations to start, " said freshman guard Liuren Greif. " Tlien Alexis goes down and e ' er ' one wntes us off, but we regr )uped and we made a great run. " Cal ' s success in the six ' ond-hall of the season is due to freshman guard Natasha Vital who stepped up her game by taking the offense. For its second year in a row, Cal had an all-freshman backcourt. Comin g back to the Pac-10 Tournament, Hampton and sophomore forward center Ashley Walker dommatev.1 the court, c-aming honors (or their cnergenc eftorts. " They ' ve grown as a tandem and they earned us a lot, " said hc-ad coach STORY in Frances E. Chang Joanne Boyle. " They were able to formulate a chemistry and unselfishness amongst each other, and they found their niche with their ability to take over games and share the ball. " Hampton was named Player of the Week twice on January 1 5 and February 26, while Walker earned three on November 20, December 1 1 and January 22. Similar to Hampton last season. Walker was one ot the top rookies in the Pac-10 and was named member of the Pac-10 All-Freshman team and finalist for a spot on the 2006 USA Under-20 Nanonal team. Tliis season, she was named Practice Player of the Year, Best Free Throw Shooter, Best Rebounder and won an award for Academic Achiexement. Hampton was also named the Pac-1 Player of the Year and was the first Cal player since 1992-199? to earn a NCAA Division I honorable mentii n Kodak WBCA Ail-American. Furthermore, both Hampton and Walker were selected as Cal ' s Best Oftensive Players and were the first since 1 992-1 993 to earn All-American distinction by receiving honorable mention AssiKiated Press All-America honors. ■Additionally, they were named to the 10-member All-Pac-10 team, the second time in Cal ' s history to have two first-team All-Pac-10 honorees.

" The race had triple the numlxt ot participants than past vars with met 100 rac ers, " said senior rhetoric and English major Enn Reed. Just to K- clear, the Bearathlon consisted ot a SOO-meter swim, a 14.Vmile bike nde, and a 5kni run. The famous Ironman Tnathlon, l ' y companson, subjivts its pattici pants to a 2.4-mile swnm (that ' s a lot of laps, people), a demanding 1 1 2-mili bike nde, and a 26.2-mile tun. " The hardest pan of the race prolvibly was the all-nighter some of the xolunti-ers and I pulled to set up and then help organize the race, " said Ri-ed. " Sta ' ing au ' ake to din-ct racers after standing in the rain tor hours to hang I 20 road signs definitely put us to the rest. " Dunleax expressed difterent hardships. " T1ie race was long; for a spnni tnathlon. it ' s dehniiely the hardest one out there. " she said. " As we were going up Centennial IRd.j, ii sranisl dn::ling and tlie log descended.

Cal took first place, though, with seniors Justin Laue and Kelly Dunlea y as the e ' ent ' . i m-erall winners. « I- really tough to keep goiriK. she said. So why he in a triathlon anyu ' ay. ' Surely there are better, less exhausting ways to prove that you ' re awesome, like, for example, putting on a puppet show representing your high school years, or creating a dance to celebrate your uniqueness. (I can ' t take credit for that one; 1 have to give props to Greg Behrcndt, author of He ' s Just Not That Into You. Don ' t pretend you don ' t know what I ' m talking aKiut.) There arc plenty of reasons to be in a triathlon. First ot all, there ' s the obvious: you get into the best shape you ' ll e ' er be in. You can eat whatc ef you want, e ' en the Godiva chocolate cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory, which is about 900 calories a slice. That ' s about as much as the entire contents of a tivgo Ixix from the Dining Commons. Being in a triathlon takes discipline and motixation, patience and tortitude, ' adda ' adda y,idda. People do tri.irjilons K-cause the - want to sec it they can. Isn ' t what we all do. ' Try to push die envelope, attempt the impiissible, K- the best ersion of ourselves. ' For competitors, it ' s alxiut improvement and achie ' ement: " I think the race was gixxl for the team. Robyn. who tixik 2nd, is a brand new- freshman, so she ' s only going to get fester, " said Dunlea -y. " The guys took 1 St and 2nd, so it seems like we have a gtxxl team. I ' d like our team to Anally win nationals: we ' ve gotten 2nd place so many years in a rxiw. " Tlie Bearathlon also g;ivc the team a chance to get closer. " Our team is one of the largest in the nation and one of the largest club teams at Cal with memlx-rs that easily numlx-r over 1 SO, " said Reed. " Training, racing and siKialiiing together, whether it ' s at an ' epic ' nde, or out version ot ptvim. the a-am is like a gigantic, nutt ' , spandex lad family. " It just wouldn ' t be the same without the spandex, in my opinion. The workouts are tough and nuniK-r of running shix-s expended is intense, but c en as a spectator I can say with convicnon that completing a triathlon must K- very revs-arding.

You haw to drag me to the i, ' -m. 1 consider myself neitlier atliletic nor competiti e, so 1 never signed up tor intramural sports. Luckily. I had a friend who persistently imited me to check out Taekwondo. After much prixlding. 1 finally enrolled in the PE course t;iuglit by Master Russell Ahn in the tiill semester of my junior year. Wliat started as a ery cautious toray into a brand ne ' subject became an integral part ot my undergraduate education. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art whose name translates into " the way of the hand and fcxit. " At I C Berkeley. Taekwondo is part of the L ' C Martial Arts Program (L ' CMAP). which was established by Dr. Knmg-Ho (Ken) Min m 1975. UCMAP is compnsed ot six martial art disciplines: Judo, Karate, Taekwondo, Taiji, Wushu, and Yongmudo. According to its mission statement, " It is tlie purpose of the Martial Arts Program to preserve the philosophy, techniques, and traditions of martial arts and to develop a scientific understanding of the physical and spiritual implications of human performance. ' Indeed, the program is a world-renouned Ic.ider in the de elopment and growth ot the martial arts, making itself a model tor other universities. The Taekwondo class immediately tit my personality ind goals. Master Ahn was a firm but affable teacher. The teaching assistants were Cal students of higher ranks, who were patient and supportive. The class ottered a curriculum and, most importantly, disciplined me - something a treadmill tiiiled to proxide. It taught me balance, endurance, and respect. 1 gained confidence and selt-awareness. The nighmiare ot me as a hamster mindlessly running on a treadmill feded away and in it place are all the fond memories that remind me why I love Taekwondo. First, my classmates representcil the disersiry ot the campus and community. They included a ten year-old girl from a nearby element;iry school and her six year-old brother; a first-year Poli Sci major; and an Engineering grad smdent just to name a few. 1 know that academically I would have never crossed paths with these ama:ing people. Howc-wr, die white unifomis that we wore snipped axvay our ditterences and superficial stawses that burdened us outside the dojo. Once on the, your age diKfsn ' t matter; your nvijor is inconsequential; the hierarchy ot protessi r, graduate student and undergraduate student disappears. We transform into one team helping each other through the drills, exercises, and forms. The only individual marks are our Kiyaps, or yelling shouts. At the end ot class, we form a circle «itli the instmaors and kiyap tliree times at die top ot our lungs in a display of unir - and strength. I also lo ' e Taekwondo because I became a part of a community. Aside from Mastet Ahn and a tew other black belt faculty members who teach the PE courses, the club and program are run entirely by students and olunteers. Tlie black Ixrlt insmictors tor club are all student volunteers. Tlie annual Taekwondo tournament is org;mi:ed ;md managed entirely by UCMAP memK rs and the snulent ' olunteers, who often compete in the matches and cikc on volunteer shifts. Gin you imagine how hectic that must he? When I sec my fellow Taekwondo buddies, we share mort than the usual " hello " ; we share the same anticipation to leam the brand new Hcxik kick, the same frtistration to master the tricky fifth step in the Palgwe Sam-Jang Fonii, and die same joy to step onto the mat. When 1 started the class, I had no idea diat I would get so tar. I gr.iduatc l as a green belt (that ' s three promotions from a beginner ' s white belt) and ha e made many friends. Fnim philosophy to physic-al fitness, from competition ui collaboration, Taekwondo has contributed immensely to my core undergraduate experience here at Cal.

Boasting tour nanonal championships (1968, 1875, 1997, 1998) and last season ' s national pommel horse champion, junior Tim McNeill, the Golden Bears were ready for action. The team continued uni.ler the direction ot head coach Barr ' Weiner and assistant coach Aaron Floyd. With the Bears since 1992, Weiner entered into his 16th season with seniors Caleb Kirk, Bromley Palamountain and Hiroki Yiikoyama; juniors Tyler Block, Zach Boone, Kyle Brady, Sean Bryan, Colin Christ, Mark Freeman, Kyle Litow, Tim McNeil l and Aaron Lee Moy; sophomores Kyson Bunchuwong and E an Roth; and freshmen Br an Del Castillo and Paniel Geri. Early in the season McNeill was named NCAA Division I Natiimal Gymnast ot the Week. The (.Aillege Gymnastics Association announced the honor after the team ' s competition versus the Cardinal in tlie Big Flip on February 16. " We ' re a talented team dri en by our junior class, " said Weiner. " Our nucleus is the junior class. " The 2007 Mountain Pacific Sports Fedenil Championship (MPSF) was held in the Haas Pavilion on March ?1. California placed tliird, as Oklahoma, Stanford, Nebraska and the Air Force placed in the other tour spots, respectively. The team ' s sictories were found at the top ot the parallel bar event with Tim McNeill holding the first place spot of all competing athletes; Colin Christ also placed third in the e ent. On still rings, McNeill and Tyler Block tied tor third place as Kyle Bnidy and Caleb Kirk both scored higher than a 9.0. The 2007 NCAA championships were hosted by Penn State on the weekend of April 12-14. With a history of 24 national individual champions, this year the Golden Bears celebrated two first place titles on the pommel horse and parallel bars, both earned by McNeill with scores of 9.650 and 9.725. Christ and Bunthuwong were also successfiil in earning national placements to end the year. Tying for second on the high bar, Christ boasted a thitd place ranking on the parallel bars, and Bunthuwong came in eighth on the still rings. Both Christ and BLinthuwong earned AU- .Americ.i honors tor their performances. As the year came to a close, California men ' s gymnastics ended on a high note with the announcement of the Academic All-Mi untain Pacific Sports Federation ' s scholar athletes. In order to be selected for conference academic honors, the athlete must possess a grade point average of a 3.0 or higher, and hold at least a sophomore standing. With nine team members selected tor academic honors, tlie Golden Bears laid claim to the highest number of selections within the conference, heating out Stanford ' s eight selected athletes. Those smdents honored for their academic success were senior Caleb Kirk (Integrative Biology); juniors Tyler BIcKk (Integrative Biology), Kyle Brady (Psychology), Sean Br an (Physics), Colin Christ (Undeclared), Mark Freeman (Sociology). Tim McNeill (Psychology) and Aaron Moy (Mass Communications); and sophomore Kyson Bunthuwong (Undeclared). " It exemplifies who we are, " said Weiner.

At the 2007 FINA World Championships on March 27, Coughlin won thf 100m backstroke final in 59.44 seconds, 0.14 seconds under the record she set in 2002. At the US National Championships that year, she became the first woman to clock under a minute in the e ent. She also became the first woman since Tracey Caulkins in 1978 to win five domestic titles at one championship, proving her all-around talent by also winning gold in freestyle and butterfly races. CAiughlin ' s success at the 2002 US Nationals, in addition to the 200 Pan Pacific Championships in Japan, brought her name to the forefront Throughout the remainder of her college career, she amassed a large nuniK-r ot awards, records and honorst NCAA Swimmer ot the Year (tor the third-straight time), NCAA Champion (twelve altogether, the second most in NC. A history), P.ic-10 Swimmer of the Year, and Women ' s Spiirts Foundanon Sportswoman of the Year to name a few. In the 2002-2(XI5 season alone, Coughlin broke three world, seven American and three NC ' AA records. When 2004 rolled around, the swimmer qualified for the Olympic team in the 1 00m backstroke and lOOm freestyle, which alUiwed her to also .swim three relays. By the end of the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Coughlin hai.1 won five medals - twii gold Rvo silver and one bron:c. She Ix-came the thiril American woman to win five mewlals in a single Olympic game. t nt itrtsv Tom Ailen iHt Oaii I. i iFom Tixlay, the 24-year-old Bay Area nan e connnues to reside in Berkeley and train with Cal head coach Ten McKeever. " I pl an to swim at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, " she said. " After all, I ' m still impmvmg. " Indeed, Coughlin sets the bar high - for herself and the competition. " Well it has Kx-n a goal of mine for five years now M break my K-st, which is a world record. 1 felt really strong and confident, " she said after her 1 00m backstn.ikc win in March. " I knew that was exactly how I needed to swim tliat race to break the (world) record and I did. " Pige 14 ' i Athlctu ' seniors The Class of 2007 leaves Berkeley not only a valuable workforce, but also a group of conscientious citizens. Equipped with a world- class education, seniors will now venture beyond Berkeley to pursue graduate and professional degrees; careers; travel plans; and other endeavors that reflect a discipline and commitment to their passions, academic or otherwise. Good luck, and Go Bears! i r jA m m MY TREASURE BOX sioK-i bv Esther Moon One by onu, I tilk-J my empty treasure box with mcmt ries I have collected since the first day I set toot in Berkeley. Now, I open it to reminisce. 1 stick my hand in the box and pull out a memory. This is the day I ran into a friend from a class taken the pre ious semester on my way out of Dwinelle towards Sather Gate. As I yell out my greetings, 1 turn to see who he was talking to, and what do you know? An old friend! I had met her two summers ago, my first summer in Berkeley. We first met in class that summer and studied together. She and I, along with another friend from class, had stayed up eating popcorn and playing pool in Clark Kerr ' s Building 7 Lounge. Next to us was a group of friends playing Scrabble and another group eating and watching " Iron Chef around 3 a.m. The three of us got through the class with the help of a friend of mine from the dorms. As a sign of gratitude, the three of us raided my brother ' s dorm kitchenette to bake our surprise " thank-you " cake. Howe ' er, this part of Clark Kerr was a bit run down. The locks on the dcxirs didn ' t lock, the back lounge was deserted because of the rumor that homeless individuals slept in that room, and the kitchenette had malfunctioning utilities. In order for the oven to close, we had to stick a fork in it, similar to how Sandra Bullock closed the microwave in the movie Miss Congeniality. The unique thing about this run down dorm is that it was filled with boys who wanted co d dorms only to find themselves in a building with only one female, their RA, who they darc-d not provoke. After finishing the thing that barely resembled a cake, we presented it to my dorm friend. No one knew what to do with it. So, the four of us sat down to eat it. It didn ' t look good but it sure tasted gcxxl. After that summer was over, we went our separate ways. Cell phone numbers changed. TTiere was no way of contacting each other. Never did I expect to be reunited through the unintentional help of another friend. There was much to be said, much to catch up on, and many memories to be made but not enough time. 1 look back in my treasure box and see a collection of events and incidents. Memories of a fractured foot; figuring out who to move into apartments with; bonding with apartment-mates; watching late night movies; arguments that are now inside jokes; watching friends tease other friends; watching their retaliations fire back; going to my first A ' s vs. Giants game; cooking dinner together; dropping chickens; baking every Friday; driving to church together; celebrating birthdays and baptisms; racing to class; hearing the chimes of the Campanile; cheering at The Big Game; grabbing midnight snacks at Asian Ghetto, La Burrita and Top Dog; spending the night .it the library during finals with the help ot apple clouds and coffee at FSM; and coundess others. Now, it is time to say goodbye. The time I ha e spent here in Berkeley is like a dream. Berkeley will always be here but it will never be the same. My friends, professors, GSI ' s even myself, we are all moving in time, whether it K- forward or backwards depending on the definition. Howe er, 1 know that I will always have these stories with me n help me walk into my fiiture filled «ith ncu ' adventures as a Golden Bear. Once a Bear, always a Bear. GO BEARS!

There was tlie rustration ot trying to recall details and events swt re I would ne ' er forget, and the challenge f summariiing so many intangible yet significant ife lessons... EssoN i: Flexibility Tht)ugh this realization might run contrary popular believe aKiut Berkeley students ' esponsihility. organization, and general )reparcdness (cough cough ncrdlncss cough ough), one of the biggest lessons I have learned rom my time herc is flexibility, one that came in landy from the very beginning: A icr standing in odyssey-like lines at SFO and noring through the light to Neu Yorlc ' s JFK airport. 1 am m onneil that do not han ' ihf proper Visa lisii Gh ina; ihcre ore, 1 CANNOT GET ON AY FLIGHT TO ACCRA (Ghana)... Thai means uas stuck all alone m Neu Yorlc Cil or four ays... After a few hours of mental sel - Iadulaiion. Itcided to reframe this situation (thank you Sociology ourses. ' ) as an opportunity to see the Big Apple, a city i hich I neier properly iisiied... " (8 2 2006) Without the lessons in flexibility afforded to me by my time at Berkeley, I would never have been able to cope with such a catastrophic collapse in plans. My thanks to required courses that filled up before my TeleBears, midterms that were moved to perfectly coincide with paper deadlines, and the emotional roller oaster of apartment hunting. Lesson 2: Tkving " and some other study abroad students sampled a local delicacy called palm uine for the rst time. Let me tell you, few things are funnier than uaiching eight people Irving 10 pretend to enjoy something that, frankly, tastes like pulpy, rotten grass... It uas cenainN a lesson in cultural diplomacy... " (8 21 2006) Though the campus dining halls have yet to offer delicacies such as palm wine, many aspects of my years at Berkeley have primed me for tr ' ing new things. From participating in a new club or activity to raising my hand in an 800- person lecture, Berkeley opened my mind to new experiences. The ability to overcome fear associated with trying new things was a crucial element of my college experience. Lesson 3: Failing Most students at Berkeley are familiar with the specter of failure; whether it be choking during the last minute ot an intramural siKcer game, bombing a midterm, or trying to figure out how you are going to make it through your major{s) before you completely bum out. Study abroad offers you chances to tail on a scale grander than you could ever imagine. " recentK took part m the intercollegiate cross counlrv race. Though did m best to represent enthusiastic yet talentjeioid exchange students eteryuherc, tuo thirds 0 the way through the race m hip buckled and collapsed on the ground. ..TTius my illustrious Ghana running career ended uilh me licking glycerin pouder out of my hand and ualking noodle-legged up to a podium to accept my box of laundry soap ' for participating. ' Though eared that had irreparably tarnished the image of the Cali omiuns abroad, the pats on the hack (and belly laughs) got from Ghanaians and exchange students ;usi for trying made the experience uorthuhile... " (1 1 2 2006) Both Ghana and Berkeley taught me to embrace the positives that come with occasionally biting the dust. I learned from those experiences; I realized that tiiilure is not as terrible as you think and that it is better (and or funnier) than if you never tried at all. Lesson 4: Appreciation This memory from Ghana made me realize exactly how much 1 tcxik for granted in my life as a Berkeley student and Califomian; " ...running uaier in dorms here is more of a nice surprise than a constant amenity. Houeier, about a month ago ue reached a new extreme. Not only uas the water out for eight straight days, but our trusty PolyTanks lay barren for the last four of those days... History harkened back to the Great Depression; soup lines replaced by bucket lines and runs on uaier tanks instead 0 runs on banks... " (12 2 2006) Facing such h.indamental challenges in Ghana alerted me to the privileges and opportunities of going to Cal: learning from amazing professors, continually meeting phenomenal people, and accessing all the resources Cal has to offer, like working bathrooms. The daily stresses of college life make it easy to forget how fottunate I am to be part of such a fantastic learning communiry. In Conclusion " My time in Ghana more than anything has made me uani to lii life uith joy and apprecuiiion of all the uvnder ul people uho touched my life and the experiences learned from throughout college... " (12 21 2007) Thanks for four great years, Berkeley!

NXTiat these texts omit is tliat tomatoes are best picked about halt an hour lietore an August sunset, when the fruit has gathered the warmth of the sun for twelve hours or so. A warm cherry tomato, eaten just seconds after being picked, has the capacity to send my taste buds into a frenzied excitement, sweet and tart vying for prominence in the moment ot enjoyment. It is with this memory in mind that I sow tomato seeds under the rains ot February ' . It would take five of these seeds to cover my thumbnail, yet given fertile soil and tavorable growing conditions, a miniscule tomato seed can become a plant tht)usands of times larger than the original seed. Eiich seed, equipped with a small stock of nutrients, is released in hopes that it will land, by chance, in nourishing soil. Four years ago, I, too, was released into the wind of change. Like a seed, I carried a limited stock of nutrients, for me knowledge, experiences, and interests rather than carbohydrates, as I set off in search of fertile ground in which another cycle of my life would begin. I landed in Berkeley California, i.OCC miles away from my upbringing on the east coast. Despite the change from loblolly pines to redwoods and coast live oaks, UC Berkeley provided me with perfect germination conditions: challenging, rigorous academic classes, ample opportunities lor exploration outside of my field of study, and the ability to reach beyond the necessarily limited scope of my undergraduate courseu ' ork. Upon landing in such fertile soil. 1 quickly put out riKtts to be enriched by the university and the surrounding community. As rich loam to a pregnant seed, UC Berkeley has providc-d me with extraordinary opportunities, and I have grown greatly from those of which I took advantage. Although I have spent many hours in lectures and engrossed in KK)ks and problem sets ovet the past four years, some of my experiences outside of the classriKim stay with me most vividly: bird sroRN B " ! .Adri.w Down watching ,it the Berkeley Marina with professor and renowned poet Rt bett Hass, an optional field trip as part of his course " lntrt)duction to Environmental Studies " ; seeing the high schiK l students that I had wtirked with for the past three months tlirough the Environmental Sciences Teaching program beaming on Cal Day after demonstrating their final projca to their friends and family, achieving more then some of they themselves believed was within their capacity; shaping clay on a potter ' s wheel in the ASUC art studio, moving from complete amateur to something very little more than that over the past three years; trekking miles by foot and by bus, literally running all over Berkeley, to keep housing appointments and find myself a place to live; getting a hug from an entire pre-schtx)l class, all at once, after giving them a tour of the Student Organic Garden. My experience at Berkeley has not often been easy, academically and sometimes also personally, but my myriad experiences have given me a deeper appreciation for the diversity of intellectual inquiry and the ever-present possibility of employing the great knowledge gained ftom such an education to positively impact tlie lives t)f others. I have changed in the last four years, ennchevl by the important lite lessons that I carrv with me. I also have a much wider repenoire ot amusing anecdotes and stories of things that could happen " only in Berkeley. " Time prtKeeds cyclically for annual plants. Nearing the end of the growing cycle, the viracity of tile plant is transferred from the vegetative U dy. a vesnge of the past which tails back into the soil, to tile tiny seeds, equipped.! to Ix-gin the cycle anew and inhised with promise tv r the Kiiure. As I ne;ir the end of my undergraduate eduction, I feel that I. tix), am preparing to set off for new ground. Nourished I ' ly the knowledge and experiences that I have gained dunng my time at L ' C Berkeley, I will Ix- able to thriw no matter where the winds of change m;iy take me.

ANY HOANG Before Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau there was Chancellor Robert Berdalil who served as UC Berkcle ' ' s chancellor for sc en years before retirinK. In thos seven years, he began an aggressive campaign to update the campus ' s aging facilities, raising over SI billion and investing the hinds in our libraries and other physical construction of the campus. They have retrofitted aKiut eight or ten major campus buildings in addition to the development ol new ones such as the Health Science Initiative and the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest ol Society (CITRIS). He also took on the role as campus moderator between student ' . ' roups as they clashed over the Middle East conflict and September 1 1 . 2001 . Alter having been president and a professor of physics for four years at the I niversity of Toronto and dean of the Department of Physics at Massachusetts Instinite of Technology, Robert J. Birgeneau became our ninth chancellor on September 22, 2004. Even being new to the University of Calilomia system, he was not new to the issues such as the dwindling state support and fonds. Birgeneau has always been a firm beliexer in diversity and took steps in reversing Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action in the admissions process. Since his inauguration. t hancellor Birgeneau has voiced his efforts to raise the minimum wage for Berkclev employees and to increase financial aid for students from low-income families. Ht is ver ' much committed to impronng campus in all ways, whether it be spons icademics, research, infrastructure, or facilities. new faces of TELEGRAPH AVENUE sii]K in KiMBf Ri.Y Lin Stores along Telegraph Ave. such as Gap, Ric Camera, Cody ' s Eiooks and Kxpress have closed and been replaced with other chains such as Walgreens and I hipode, both of which have been major successes. Chipotle targets the students who need a quick lunchtime that is familiar, filling, and economical. Walgreen though heavily overpriced, is much more convenient than the original Shamuk location and serves many students who need quick groceries or prescription dni ; Many of these new businesses were brought in to resitaliie the economic downnirn was hitting the street. Also in consideration are prop» sals to replace the Bear • Lur ' s The Coft ' ee Spot with a larger chain such as Starbucks " or Peer ' s Coffire. Ni ' only Telegraph, but the rest of Berkeley could soon be relying on larger chains i. improve the declining economic situation. In addinon to these store changes, the cnirfew for business has extended from tlu original 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. for Fridays and Saturdays for businesses that do not mI alcohol and 1 2 a.m. for those that do. Extensions for the hours of operations can 1 1 obtained through permits. These changes were implemented to sansfy- the studio demands of longer hours and the business demands ot supplying the laic-nici student market. Tliere have also K-en priiposals to clean up Telegraph, with plan- including 5360,000 to add undercover police, foot and bike patrols, and sidi-w.ill swix-ping. According to local business owners, there has since been a significat decline in drug-dealing and other criminal ,ictinties.

Leadership and involvement in organizations fosters a community of peers, one pursuing a variety of goals within and beyond UC Berkeley ' s borders. From poetry slams to social justice, students take a stand and make a difference in ways unique to their diverse skills and interests. I- Debbie Bokoes STORY nv pRwrrs H C ' liwc. PHOTOS BY DCBBlt BORGUS In Its nrst semester, a new student ulunteer organization bridged the gap between Cal students and the Berkele ' community. The Berkeley ' Project (BP) organized an extensiw one- day student community service event called the Berkeley Project Day (BP Day) on November 1 1 , 2006. The day consisted of over 1 ,000 Cal saident.s working together at 43 project sites throughout the city of Berkeley. Collaborating with communirs partners, the Berkeley ' Projea coordinated student community service in the areas of city works clean up, landscape gardening, refurbishment painting and community enrichment. Students engaged in various activities from building playgrounds and planting trees to making meals tor tlie homeless and helping out at IcKal senior centers. " Overall, everyone who participated in the Berkeley Project had a good time. " said recruiting director Jeff Naeckcr, a junior double majoring in physics and economics. " They got to make a big impact on their surroundings while getting to interact with other students. " The Berkeley Project was modeled after the Detroit Project at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Since its establishment in 1999, the Detroit Projea has successfully linked snidents to the community, a goal the Berkeley Project adopted when it was founded in 2006. The group originated in March 2006 from the efforts of executive director Andrew Rowland, a senior majoring in applied mathematics and political economy of industrial societies, and Peter Do, a Cal alumni with a major in conservation and resource studies. Realizing that a majority of Cal students were not involved in the community, the group set out to bridge this widening gap. " We started BP m an ettort to mobili:e the tremendous size and energy of the Cal snident body towards the betterment of the community in which we reside, " said Rowland. " While there are many student service groups on campus, we saw a need to provide fun, easily accessible service events for students with little prior experience participating in service activities. " Due to the huge student population, the group believed that soidents could have a big impact on the Berkeley community. The ultimate goal was to create a network of service activities that would serve the needs of the city and its residents and forge a positive relationship between the campus and the community. " Our purpose was to unite students from all parts of campus under the single purpose of lifting up the community around us. in doing so we wished to encourage students to participate more frequendy in service activities and learn about needs in the surrounding community, " said Rowland. " As these goals were largely achieved, we couldn ' t be happier with the way BP Day txirned out. " Even after months of planning, though, the group faced challenges on the day of the event. " Because this was the first year of the group ' s existence, planning took a lot of work, " said Rowland. " Everything was a huge challenge, from finding and organizing service projects, to raising enough money to feed 1 ,000 students, to constructing the website, to planning the logistics of the big day. As a nc-w group, we also had little crc " dibility, so we very much operated at a grassroots level, doing most everything ourselves. " For a successful event, the group hoped to raise $17,000 in supplies and materials for the site projects as well as fixxl and t-shirts for the students. Big Ideas, an ininative whusc inisMui is to fund, support and encourage UC Berkele interdisciplinary student teams with " big ideas, gave a $5,000 grant to the group. Houwer, oi the big day, the group ' s food and t-shlit supplie ran low, and bad weather caused heavy rair Despite unpredictable occurrences, the groui still achieved its goal of recruiting at least 1,CV students for the event. With a highly successful event under its bcli the Berkeley Project decided to organize th Berkeley Projea Month (BP Month). In Mar l 2CI07, the group held a series of consecunv service events on Saturdays where student volunteered at sites organized around a theme fo that week. Under the themes of construction ani clean up day, community enrichment day an greening Berkeley day, Cal students participate in activities similar to those of BP Day. " 8:30 an IS kind of early for a Saturday though, " laughv. junior environmental economics and policy an, Chinese double major Jennifer Tse. " But gemn; so many Berkeley students to volunteer on th same day is a really cool idea. " Between BP Day and BP Month, the BcrkeU- Project left a resounding mark on the cirv Because it had never been done before, a te, like the Berkeley Projea required high levels . organization and ctxirdination with both tl students and the city.

Despite what obstacles the officers, interns and members faced, they came out stronger than e ' er. As a group, P4 overcame internal issues, scheduling conflicts, e ' ent disasters and e •era! crises. Their dedication and de ' otion to rlieir tinn belief in P4 ' s mission of advancing Pilipinos and other minorities into professional ticlds kept them motivated and dri en throughout these hardships, and still maintained a loving and welcoming environment for everyone. In spite of challenges, they not only made major accomplishments, but also made P4 history. " This year, both P4 ' s mentorship and internship [••rograms have truly evoked, " said third-year economics major David Zhang, one of P4 ' s Senior Associates. Both programs have increased in terms of membership and number of e ' ents. The Associates Program has continued to help students fulfill academic requirements with its curricukim for school units, while the Mentorship Program has helped more students get accepted into the Haas L ' ndergraduate School ot Business. Witli the help of P4 and its ongoing commitment to professional development. Associates and mentees have achie ed se eral internship positions ,ind employment opp rtunities. In fact, se ' eral have benefited fri ' m P4 ' s first-annual holistic Professional ne elopnient seminar. P4 also expanded out further into the community and worked with several professional organizations. After three years as an Affiliated Group with the Director Advisory Council (DAC) of Haas, P4 regained title of Sponsorship. P4 helped organize, ccvsponsored and participated in die first-e er DAC-»ide esent, " Ms. Business. " In addition, P4 ' s representative was awarded second runner up and the People ' s Choice Award. For the first rime, P4 collaborated with the Latino and Black Pre-Liw StKieties (LPLS and BPLS), as well as continued their relarionship witli other legal organirarions on campus such as Boalt Lnv School ' s Pilipino American Liw Society (P.ALS). P4 also attended an increasing amount oi cN-ents with the Filipino Bar Associarion of Northern California (FBANC), including its annual picnic and bi-monthly legal clinics. Despite the limited number of Pilipinos aspiring to become lawyers and professionals as well as the socioeconomic (actors that di« ' art their professional aspirarions, the few individuals that P4 did help on theit way to professional schools and careers has, nevertheless, m.ade a significant difference and helped broaden our culnire ' s representarion in the professional field. Words cannot convey the personal sarisfacrion oi knowing that we h.ave encouraged at least one Pilipino to pursue a professional career. At P4, people conrinue to form mdividual relationships that will last a lifetime. Tliey not only help each other witli personal issues, but they also support each other in academics, watch each others ' performances, help in ASUC senatorial campaigning and generally make themselves available to each other fi r anything and e cr ihmg.

Chang On Nci cmlx-r 5, 2006, the 1 OO-ycarokl rn.ilrv between UC Berkeley anJ StantorJ Lniwrsity ' moved off the tootlxill tielJ aiiJ into the kitchen. At 2 p.m. that Sunday, the t al Cooking Club hosted its first annual " BiK Cook- Off " between Berkeley and Stanford in the Pauley Ballroom of the Martin Lutlier King Jr. Student Union. Fi e students from each school ' s cooking club brought the rivalry to a boil as they competed in an Iron Chet-like cooking competition. Similar to how the winning team of the " Big Game receives the Stanford Axe, the winner of the " Big C .K)k-Off " receives a cleaver mounted on a mahogany plaque. Thirty minutes before the competition, student chefs from both teams were gi en the secret ingredient of fresh tomatoes; during the competition, they would have 5S minutes to ccx)k at least three dishes. The age old ri alr ' was unmistakably present as the opposing teams trash- talkc l each other on stage and audience members, who were primarily Berkeley supporters, sorted mto their appropriate sides. When the competition beg; n, the curtains closed around the Pauley RallriKim. and the aroma of swtxt tomatoes tilled the riKim. On the left side ol the stage, the Berkeley student chefs prepared four dishes: a trio of tomato soups; chicken with a inr» - 4»J tomato sriK ■ r..i, ,.,.,it,on i-i pr: i -irf pull pastry; and wanton ravioli with .suppL).-,cJi tomato, pineapple, mango and lime ice cream, which never fully formed into its proper textvire. On the right side of the stage, the Stanford student chefs prepared three dishes: bread salad; tomato soups; and a main entree consisting of tomato custard with tofu, goat cheese, crab, tomato jam and puff pastry ' . The competition ' s judging criteria included ingredient compatibility; presentation; creativity and fl.nvor; taste; and texture tor a total i)f 55 points. Tlie final scores were exceptionally close as Berkeley won with a total of 42.187 points over Stanford ' s score of 41.166. Judges included Cheryl Koehler, editor and publisher of Edible East Bii ; Judy Kleinberg, m;iyor t ti Palo Alto; Tom Bates, mayor ot Berkeley; ;ini.l Doug Gutterman, a seafood puneyor in the Bay .Area. With lirtle experience in cooking competitions, the Cal Ciioking Club ' s student chets were proud of what they accomplished at the " Big Cook- Off. " " We had a couple of weeks to prepare for this competition, " said third-year mathematics and intended business major Alex Alnnan, who participated as one ol the five snident chels on the Berkeley team.

Bear UC Rally Committee Blue and ;old traditions, new and old Fur over 100 years, the Universirv ot California Riilly Commirtee has served as the Guardians ot the Spirit and Traditions ot tlie University of California. X ' hile most often specified as a spiiit organization, the Rally Committee also provides students service opportunities geared towards the University as well as an avenue to experience the vast array of ' athletics in which Golden Bear athletes participate year round. The Committee is able to achie ' e these goals by way of multiple paths during the year. Most prominent in the Committee ' s repertoire is the activities related to Game Day during the football season. Members are most often seen on the field waving the Cal flags and hoisting the nets behind the uprights ftir field goals and extra pomt kicks. Committee members can also be seen at the top of the student section raising the California banner or on Tightwad Hill tiring the California Victory Cannon. The Committee is also responsible for the design and set-up of the card stunts performed at most home games. These responsibilities are performed in addition to the noon and pre-game rallies, coordinated with the University ot California Marching Band, Dance Team and Mic Men, held respectively on Friday aherncKins and Saturdays before home football games. X ' hile put in charge of the activities on the football field, the Committee also organizes events for the enjiiyment ot the entire student Kidy. One of the first major e ' ents the Committee organizes is the Homecoming Riilly. Tlirough coordinarion with other student groups, including the Cal Tae Kwon Do team, the California Golden Overtones and the Men ' s Octet, as well as the men ' s and women ' s basketball teams and alumni, the Committee takes part in the celebration of the return of the University ' s prestigious alumni to their alma mater and the California tixitball tean to Memorial Stadium after the first string of games on the road. Tlu- pl.tntliiv_ piir inro Mi)riii-i inning ' W ' ffl including the rally, often ser -es as a warm-up tor Big Game Week festix ' ities, referred to by many members as their " favorite holiday of the year. " Multiple small-scale rallies are held during the week with the help of other student groups, like Night Rally with the Marching Band and the Tree-Chopping Rally with the Cal Forestry Team, in conjunction with a vast range of other activities to cater to different prefierences among saidents. Laugh Your Axe Off, a variety show, is held during the week as a forum for choral and performance groups on campus to showcase Big Game related performances with participants this past year including Jerichol, DeCadence, AiR and stand-up comedy by members of campus humor magazine. The Heuristic Squelch. The Committee also attempts to " turn the campus blue and gold " for Big Game Week by hanging large canvas spirit banners on campus buildings and the annual Sather Lightings, the lightings of Sather Gate and the Campanile, as well as the Big C lighting on Charter Hill. The culmination of these activities during the week is the Bonfire Riilly held on Friday evening in the Greek Theatre, again featuring performances from student groups along with appearances from alumni and the football team. While many of the activities the Committee yearly participates in are the result of years of University tradition, there are areas in which the Committee is currently expanding. Charter Week is the celebration of the University ' s Charter Day. The c " ents organized by the Committee during this week haxe developed into the celebration not only of the founding of the University, but also the students, faculty, staff, and alumni that comprise the institution. A colloquium held on campus offers the opportunity for a celebrated alumni or faculty member to speak about how their rime at Cal has affected their life and career. Ananya Roy. Associate Professor in Cir - (Si Regional Planning, made an appearance this year to speak aKiut her Miirl iv -i " i ' n..v.TT 111 t!w 1 T it -.1 " r ir.-s iii.l abroad. Cultural groups worked along side the Committee for the Cultural Performances on Sproul over a span of two days as a platform for students to present their heritage and cultural backgrounds to the Berkeley community. This year, a Poetry Contest held with the help of the Berkeley Poetr ' Review and a panel of faculty judges led by Robert Hass, former Poet Liureate and current English professor at Berkeley, allowed students to share pieces they had written dedicated to their Cal experience. The Cal Photo Exhibit allowed for the same expression through visual media. Charter Games held on Sproul serve as a means of igniring friendly comperition among students, reflecting the birthday party games of childhood with a tug-of-war. water balloon toss and cake-earing contest among others. Members ot the Committee this year also facilitated the DeCal titled " Cal History, Spirit, and Traditions " to provide a venue for students to learn about Cal ' s traditions and history through interaction with University faculty and alumni speakers on such topics as the longstanding rivalry with Stanford, the founding of the L ' niversity, California Athletics, the Free Speech Movement, and campus architecture and monuments. Serving as the Guardians of the Spirit of California on the University campus, the Rally Committee aims to serve the University by providing a means to embrace and spread the Spirit of California among the L ' niversity and Berkeley community. Events are enjoyed by members of the Committee, but are also intended to create a community for students, facility and staff that wish to commemorate the rich history and traditions of the University of California. With the conclusion of a successtiil year such as tliis. Committee members look tonvard to continuing ti serve the University and spreading the Spirit ot California.

The ultimate experience in anyone ' s ML ' N :areer is art. ' uaWy participation in the World ML N conference. World ML ' N was first ;onceptuali:ed alter the collapse of the former So ict Union rendered global cooperation and consensus truly feasible for the first time in decades. The first conference was held in 1992 in Mied: ' :droje, Poland. Each year it is hosted as 1 collaKirative effort between students of Hanard University and members of the host team that submitted the winning bid for the conference ' s location. Consequently, the conference is ItKated in a different city e ' ery year. While many of the conferences have K-en held in Europe, the tnilv international spirit ot MLN is evident in past locations such as Istanbul, Turkey; Belo Honronte, Br,i:il; and Sharm, Eg pt. In 2006, the ;onterence was held in Beijing, China. This is the second time tliat tile World MUN conference has been held in Gene a (originally, in 1 995). It is no coincidence that this is the only repetition of location in the history of World MUN. Swicerland, and especially Geneva, is uniquely multicultural and hence the perfect setting tor the global nanire of MUN and this conference in particular. Possessing four official languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh), Switzerland is one of the most heterogeneous societies in the world. Geneva was the seat of the League of Nations, the predecessor of the present United Nations, and i s presently seat of the European headquarters of the United Nations, as well as host to a score ot intergovernmental organizations often found in ML ' N conferences, such as the L ' nitcd Natiiins Human Rights Council and the World Trade Organization. Additionally, many non-governmental organizations (NGO ' s), including recognizable names such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Baccalaureate program, arc headquartered in Geneva. The 2007 World MUN Conference drew over 1 .700 delegates from a diverse mi. of more than 45 countries such as Senegal, Germany, Venezuela, New Zealand and Pakistan. Nine of Berkeley ' s ten delegates represented Zambia in various committees of the conference, with the remaining delegate representing El Salvador. Be ond the walls constraining engaging committee debate, delegates were able to experience Switzerland and the cultures of other visitors through events such as The Global Village and a boat cruise on Lake Ge neva. First-year Japanese language and EECS major Wayne Lin said, " The gentle breeze coming in from over the Alps, a quiet European town, a lake cruise with friends from all over the world - phew, what a rekixing break from Berkeley. " Berkeley ' s delegates also explored the cities of Geneva and Lausanne, walked across the Ixirder into France and tixik a posKonference trip to Venice, Italy. Third-year Middle Eastern studies major Artin AtVhami said, " Venice is tlie most K ' auntiil city I ' ve ever seen - lioni the Campanile to the green water in the canals. " The conference and tnp as a whole formed an expenence that all are sutv to remember tor yc-ars to come.

R .G 2007 I P.i«c 2 6 Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility Students for Responsible Business STORY BY Matthew Atkins Should a business concentrate its efforts solely on ma. imi:ing profits and the price of its stock. ' Or does it have implicit obligations to maintain favorable relationships with its employees, customers and residents of the neighborhood in which it operates. ' These are important questions in the contemporary world, especially as corporate scandals become increasingly common. The dilemma certainly places different businesses on different sides of this ethical decision, and proponents ot both sides have valid points that must be taken seriously. In recent years, a number of academic insrinitions and centers ha -e been created to study this subject, which is dubbed corporate social responsibility- (CSR). CSR is the priorit - a firm places on consideration of its stakeholders over maximization of its shareholders ' profit. Its stakeholders include four fundamental groups: its customers, its employees, its shareholders and the en ironment. At UC Berkeley, the Haas School of Business has established a Center for Responsible Business (CRB). Founded in 2003, the CRB currently works in collaboration with students, faculty-, the industry- and peer organizations to study and promote CSR. An example ot this collaboration can he found in Students for Responsible Business (SRB), the only undergraduate organization im campus de ' Oted to the concept of CSR. While providing professional services to its members as in other business clubs, SRB is set apart from the rest by its focus on CSR and the activities its members consequently partake in. Throughout the semester, this club hosts a number of e ' ents to encourage the practice of CSR in the workplace and to expose the le ' el of involvement between various companies and the communities in which they operate. On May 3. SRB ' s Professional Committee hosted the biannual Professional Speaker Forum, bringing representatives from a number of corporations to speak about their respective company ' s efforts in the realm of CSR, " This club has taught me so much, from raising awareness of the imptirtance of corporate social responsibility to learning to be a leader amongst peers and friends, " said Bee Hui Yeh, CivChair of the Professional Committee. " Our annual professional speaker fonim really epitomizes this experience for me. Working with my wondertvil ci chair and our assixiates to host a cohesive, interesting and, more importantly, worthwhile c ent was lx th inspirational :ind re v;irdini; " At the Professional Speaker Fonim, representati es from Target, Equilar Inc., HP, Alumwire and Dotlierightthing. com spoke about the importance of CSR and the actions their respective companies have recently taken to support CSR initiatives. This diverse mix of participants ensured lively discussion, as each company has a different palate of resources available to mobilize to become a " responsible " business. Target operates a large number of brick-and- mortar stores and consequently has substantial community outreach programs in place. Beyond supporting Itxal charities, the corporation seeks to improve the quality of life for its employees, through initiatives such as donating a bus stop and working witli AC Transit to establish bus service to the local Albany store (many Target employees do not own cars and therefore rely upon public transportation to arrive at work). Equilar, Inc. is a San Matecvbased company specializing in benchmarking executive compensation; recently the salaries of high-level management, especially CEO ' s, has come vmder extensive review and setting a reasonable limit on total compensation is a responsible action in light of shareholders and employees. Additionally, the company suppotts not-for-profits and youth programs. Technology giant HP has made CSR efforts more in the arena of the environment, as steps are taken to improve efficiency and reduce emissions from their gcxxls. HP is also working to ensure greater accessibility ' to technology and is utilizing advice from non-profits such as the Wvirld Wildlife Fund to lessen its environmental footprint. Alumwire, a career-focused stKial networking service, has integrated CSR acti ities into its business. Last, hut certainly not least,, which launched in early 2007. provides an online torum for the discussion ot CSR. Consumers are able to use interactive tixils to rate a varierv of major corporations and detail their experiences with the companies. The site then provides a composite ranking of companies that are deemed to be the most stKially responsible. Throughout the year, SRB hosts a considerable number of events to bring the world of CSR to Berkele - students, engage members in beneficial debate regarding ethical dilemmas and bridge the pap K-nvcen the theory and practice of CSR. The club hopes to make a positive imp.ia in the world: Time and the fiiture climate of business operations will tell the success ot these endeavors and the !fvp ' :inco ot corp nrc ••(VmI respH»nsibilt ' Page 2 37 I Organiz-itions Cal ' s Premier Co-ed Pre-Law Fraternity STORY BY ALBhKl K.. L 1 Sigma Alpha Nii is Cal ' s prcinitr CivEd Pre- Luv Fratcmit ' . The tratcrnit ' commits itself to the meaning of its Greek letters represcnrint; uisiiom, commitment, and law. Sigma Alpha Nu is the first pre-law fraternity ever founded at Cal and is only the second pre-law fraternity in the nation. Since its inception only three semesters ago, membership in the fraternity has sextuplcd. While the numbers have increased, Sigma Alpha Nu has also grown as an institution creating numerous and ' aluable connections with professionals related to the field of law. SAN has e en established strong relations with various testing preparation companies including Kaplan, Princeton Re ie s ' , Blue Print, and Power Score that continue to provide strong material support for the fraternity. Sigma Alpha Nu promotes diversiti ' , brotherhood, and preparation for studying in the field of law. X ' hile hosting only se ' eral dozen members, the fraternity represents eight different nationalities and six different religions. SAN continues to seek diversity from new applicants and to bring individuals who would not normalK meet each other to work with one another. From the diverse group, Sigma Alpha Nu hi forged brotherhcxxl between all its members The bonding comes in part from the pledging; process where pledges have been forced to test their professional limits and rely on teamwork to complete their assigned tasks. As full fledged Actives, members of SAN come together through long hours of professional actisity and planning for the fraternity. Despite being a professional fraternity, howe ' er, SAN seeks to have its members bond on a more intimate and casiinl level as well. As such, the fraternity hosts t social es ' ents each month, allowing its mcmKi to relax and enjoy one another ' s company. Preparing its members for studying in th. field of law is one of Sigma Alpha Nu ' s pnmar purposes. In pursuit of that purpose, tl. fraternity organizes professional workshops sui: as speaker e ' ents on specific fields in law, speeJ de cliipmeni c- cnls, and mock trial- within il fraternity. SAN prepares its memK ' rs for the LSAT as well by introducing them to various test prep companies and negiMating discounts for its members. Perhaps most importandy, SAN exposes its members to the broadness of the field of law allowing them to find a specific field of interest in law for the future. Sigma Alpha Nu has grown and has successfully come to establish itself as a permanent figure on campus and the community in general. SAN has hosted numerous events on campus open to the public that help people find an interest in law. But SAN is not only concerned about the field of law; the fraternity seeks to expose its members to the needs of the community as well. Once a month, SAN organizes its members to condua philanthropy extents which have ranged from beach cleanups to providing hooks for inmates in California prisons. NX ' hile SAN has established itself, as a relatively new organization, the fraternity still retains much room for change. Members of Sigma Alpha Nu have been given the unique opp )rtunir ' to add and improve an organization permanently, not only for themselves, but for those who will come after chem. SAN sought and continues to seek active and involved members who constantly provide new direction enhancmg the well-being of the fraternity. Though still a small organization, Sigma Alpha Nu has plans to expand beyond Cal and onto other VC campuses. The intention is to e ' entually spread to campuses all across California and then throughout the nation. In order to complete this Herculean task, SAN seeks for members who are ready and willing to provide continued support after undcrgrad and during law school. This year is another first for Sigma Alpha Nu as it marks the first semester in which SAN will have alumni.

K.IMliLKL ' l LlN FiHindcd in 1970, the International Association ot Business Communicators (lABC) is a i;lobal organization with a network of over I 3,000 business communication protessionals in more than 60 Jifterent countries. It is the epicenter o( professional dc clopmcnt, knowledge resources and expansive networking. The student chapter at UC Berkeley ' , which began in Spring 2006, is a Haas-sponsored organization. It aims to create an amicable environment where students can learn from professionals, other students on campus and c cn students from other universities. Members explore a variety ' ot industries and step into the professional world through participation in events such as workshops, speaker panels, executive luncheons and office tours. In preparation for the spring internship search, the group ' s Fall 2006 schedule co nsisted mostly of professional events. However, lABC ' s most notable events fell in Spring 2007, when the ' hosted their first annual case competition, business conference and fashion show. Tlic fashion show was the most widely publicized of the three, as well as the most difficult to plan for the new organization. After months of planning, lABC hosted the " Do It Right! " fashion show on Friday, April 19 in the Lipman Room. The show was divided into three t pes of clothing - business social, casual and formal - and teatured clothes from TalUits, Personal Pizzazz, Selix and more. Models from Fashion and Student Trends (FAST), and a handful from LABC, showcased these outfits under dramatic lighting, their fierce steps accompanied by the upbeat pulsations of hip-hop music. Integral to the planning were the project managers, junior Stephanie Lin and h ' eshman Brian Jang; their committee head, junior Melissa Lock; and the rest of the communications committee. Lin and sophomore Ryan Ko were the masters ot ceremony, and improv group Jericho! was the intermission guest performer. Along witli these, there were raffle prizes, including Starbucks gifts baskets, Yogurt Park gift certificates and Jones New York purse. The event raised o $500 and donated a portion ot the proceeds to the American Cancer Society ' . " We wanted a deparaire from the t ' line-up of professional events, and this was tlie twist to our agenda, " said President Kimhcrly Lin. " First impressions are key not only in the communications industry, but in any industn in the corporate world, so a fashion show was our priority ' this semester. It ' s our mark in the Haas undergrad community, and hopefully in the Berkeley commimiry for the coming years. " The fashion show didn ' t come firom a list ot brainstormed ideas, but ratlicr, it began as a small concept that kept expanding. Co-Vice President of Communications Celine Cheung initially suggested a guest speaker to present the do ' s and don ' ts ot various industries, then another board member playfully offered to model the prototypical styles, and another wanted models tor every violation and proponent tor the dress ccxies. Eventually, all the ideas culminated in a fashion show, and it was the transformation of ideas to actions and from actions to the first fashion show that made lABC such a success. The success of the fashion show is a story ot evolution, how a small on ampus business organization slowly emerged from the eclipse of large organizations. It is reminiscent of a Horatio Alger transformation, except as it grows, it establishes its position as the leader in corporate trends. According to Vice President of Membership Melissa Lock, " The large-scale event represented lABC ' s strong potential for growth, and its ability to attract students with a wide range of interests, K th within and outside the business community.

You might ha e thought it was another Sunday attemoon in Zellerhach Auditorium, a few songs and dances and skits, and of course, really nice costumes. And you would have been right. But only partly. As any member of the Pilipmo American Alliance (PAA) would have been able to tell you, there was a lot more to it. Planning for the April 22 show, intriguingly titled " Anatomy, " K ' gan several months prior. Club members in charge of Berkeley ' s Pilipino Culture Night (PCN) began leading regular meetings soon after auditions were held m January. Thc-y maintained a website to keep pcrtormers. tech crew, and potential audience memK-rs updated on the progress of the show. They c-sen put together a spring DECal course focused on putting together and runnins; the show. After all, PCN had a three-decade tradition to maintain, and one that was not just part of UC Berkeley ' s cultural history. PCN is a national tradition, and Cal ' s annual event is the second-longest production in the nation, right behind San Francisco State University and followed closely by UCLA. Fortunately, it received the recognition it descned, being featured in media as different as YouTubc and the San Francisco Chronicle. So when fourth-year Billie Domingiie: exclaimed " yayl " four times while encouraging her genetics classmates to attend the esent, you might have slightly doubted whether it really was worth all that excitement, but you might have decided to bclie c that maybe it was. You would have been right. B .G 2007 I Page 242 Theatre Rice! y ) i STOR ' i B ' l NALIM PaDMANABHAN Mention The.itTO Rice to any Betkeley student anJ you ' ll ptobably be answeted with a LTin. Why ' In a time and place whete political cot- tectness is ptetty- much requited, practically every student has been through at least a few diversity programs, and nearly half the population claims some Asian ancestry ' , the Asian American comedy troupe provides a much-needed respite from the seriousness of it all. Plus, they ' re just tunny. Given their tame on our campus and appealini; combi nation ot ptofessionalism and humot, you ' d think Theatre Rice had been around forever. In fact, they haven ' t always been here, and they weren ' t always famous enough to bring long lines of students to Dwinclle ' s lecture halls on Frida and SaRirday nights. The gnuip started out just nine years ago, with tlie goal ot providing an open and comfortable envitonment for snidents to be part of the world of theatre, whether by acnng, singing, dancing, directing or working K ' hind the stage. They also have deeper culairal goals of combating the misrepresentation - and sometimes, lack ot any representation at all - ot Asian .Americans in popular culture. With a mix of novice and experienced performers, they cettainly succeeded in both goals in 2006-2C07, putting on sc cral major e ' ent.s dufing the yeat. These included spring show STFL ' on March 9-10, end of semester showcase Jackpot on April 20-21 and a free open mic night on May 1 . The spring show with the slightly tongue-in- cheek ntle leattited se cral performances, impro anil sketch comedy as well as a short humorous play titled " Self Torture and Strenuous Exercise. ' A significant portion of the prixeeds benefited the Narional Asian Women ' s Health Organi:.ation. Hyphen Magazine blogger Lisa Lee summeil up the group nicely. " I like rice, " she says, " but I like Tlieatre Rice even morel " After all, can a gram make you laugh ' til it hurts. ' Probably not.

Chances are, your txpenencc with these terms goes no further than watching an episode or two of " Dancing With the Stars " or admiring that one gracchil couple at your brother ' s wedding. Most of us can ' t tell a mambo from a rumba or a foxtrot from a quickstep. But the Berkcle - Ballroom Dancers (UCBD) can. Since 1957, this not-for-profit student organization has been competing at the top levels in these dances and others. Besides competing, UCBD puts on intensive training and Wednesday night drop-in classes for social dance. The ' perform as well. Kith on their own on Upper Sproul Plaia and in conjunction with other performing and community groups, with five public performances in the spring semester alone. TTiis year, UCBD also hosted two competibon that encouraged participation from dancers of all IcN ' els, the Berkeley ' Beginners ' Competition and the Seventh Annual Berkeley Ballnxmi Classic. Held lirom 8:15 a.m.-l 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, the Classic included syllabus, open, and team competitions in dances as diverse as swing, wait:, tango, and nightclub, as well as breaks for lunch and dinner. Spectators and compentors alike watched and enjoyed as the event culminated in a tive-dance showcase on the floor ot the P.nuln Ballrix m, by international ballrcKim champion Gen ' a Mazo and Maria Shibalox-a. Berkeley Ballroom Dancers B .G 2007 I Page 244 Fashion and Student Trends STORY BY NALINI PaDMANABHAN Cilitomia is a state known for its informal, casual spirit, and even among Calitomians, most busy Berkeley students lack the nme to indulge our more glamorous side. But never tear. On a campus dominated by sweatshirts and jeans - and the occasional hemp-clad hippie - there is still some high fashion to be found. It is here in the form of Fashion and Student Trends, or FAST, a student i;roup that since 2003 has dedicated itself to nurturing the talents and needs of snidents interested in the fashion industry. These include aspiring designers, models, artists, photographers, and thiise seeking corporate experience. Weekly meetings and larger events prepared members well tor the high le el of competition inherent to the quickly changing world ot fashion. E ery other Wednesday night, members participated in the Project Runway- mspired Fashion Sketch Design Challenge, which tested their ability to both enx ' ision and sketch spontaneously, following a different theme every rime. The group also recognized its members ' work, notably in its spring slunvcase, Brilliant Fashion Showcase Spring 2007: An Evening of Fashion. With a matinee and an evening show on Sunday, April 29, the production feanired die work of 20 student designers and 40 student nn dels, presenring a total of 120 original designs. Proceeds from the showcase benefited the N ' arional Organiiarion for Rare Disorders, a collaborarion between ses ' eral ioluntar ' health organizarions dedicated to identifying, treating, and curing rare diseases. Other highlights of the year included fundraisers, socials, and community service ewnts.

On Tuesday, February 27, a couple dozen Kiiys t,nit!n.Ted around pizza boxes in a Barrows classRioni. Holdin g limc-tjrecn flyers, they listened as junior Travis Garcia, 22, laid our the yoals of the fraternity. The prospective schedule included a vast array of events, including voluntary library ' and gym group sessions, political events, business events, and of course a variety of social functions. " Maybe we can have a formal, " said Garcia. " I know that may sound funny, but I think a lot of us missed out on that experience, like with prom in high schcxil. 1 don ' t know about you guys, but I nx k a girl to my prom, and I just wisli 1 could ' ve shared that with a guy 1 cared about. " The others nodded in agreement. After all, this was the inaugural meeting of Sigma Epsilon Omega (SEO), UC Berkeley ' s only gay fraternity. Established Febniar - 22, 2007, SEO is one of the few gay fraternities in the country. Although It fiincrions as a general social fraternity, it is also politically and professionally oriented around the gay movement. " SEO offers gay Cal undergraduate and graduate students all the social benefits and fun of a typical fraternity with a professional and political edge, " said Garcia, the fraternir - ' s founder and president. " We are going to take an active approach to addressing gay issues. " Indeed, the group ' s emergence has sparked a dialogue on campus and in the community. " Not only is it exciting to welcome a new group that promotes activism and diversity in the Greek community, it is gotxl to see such a group getting overwhelmingly positive press, " wrote Brandy Gamoning, president of UC Berkeley ' s Student Coalition for Marriage Eciuality. " A gay fraternity has the power to show that homosexuals really are part of the mainstream. " Garcia Ixlieses the organization can serve as a balance to the portrayal of gay stereotypes in the inedia. " On FOX news, they ' ll show you a 10-second clip of a guy in a pink thong at the Pnde Parade, and that ' s not an image most people can relate to, " he said. He hopes SEO can he a leader in adviKating gay rights on campus and e ' en nationwide. Although the group has thus far received positive feedback from the press, campus, and Greek council. Garcia says he will challenge opposition head-on through debates. " We will definitely not be a group that stays in the background of the gay nghts movement, " he said. While onenteil towards the gay community, SEO will demonstrate no preference for homosexuals over other people. " We will not discriminate against anyone, gay or straight, " said Garcia. With over 20 current brotliers, SEO looks forward to growing and becoming a cornerstone of the LOST community at Cal, said Garcia. Though many brothers are pre-law or political science majors (including Garcia), they arc of various ethnic backgrounds, hail from around the country, and have diverse post-graduation plans. " I ' m liKiking tor lifelong friends, " said junior Leonard Steed. " I want good connections for the future. " SEO is In a unique position to forge strong connections betwcx ' n its members. The fraternity ' s first rush class is a step ahead others: they all share a pre-existing connection, something they can instandy relate to. " We ' re all experiencing the same thing, whether it be dating or heartbreak or coming out, " said Garcia. " Those are the issues we can all come together and deal with as a community so we ' re all a lot more successful. " Along these lines, said Garcia, " SEO Is hoping to appeal not only to existing active members of the Berkeley gay community, but also to members of the gay community that have not yet found an organization that has aligned with their common Interests or goals. " With one successful semester behind them (including events such as an LGBT Professionals Pane, " Dating for Dummies, " and a bonfire at Ocean Beach), the fraternity is already registered as a student group and hi pes to establish a house for the 2007-08 schcxil year. The next gi«il Is to Kxrome UC Berkeley ' s only gay fraternity to register with the Interfratemity Council, a process that requires $1 million in liability coverage. " A fraternity is pretty hard to start, " said Garcia. " We are talking about difficulties such as a lack of leadership and liability. organizations require time, effort and dedicated peiiple. " Indc-vd, SEO was preceded by a failevl attempt to establish a chapter of national gay fraternity Delta Lambda Phi, which existed briefly in the 1990s. Ne ' cnheless, Garcia is optimistic about SEO ' s future: " We are trying to establish an alumni board so that the organization continues c ' en after the lndi idual members graduate, " he said. " It ' s a different climate today than It was 1 S years ago. There are more- gay alumni who are out, and there ' s more support for g-ay rights In general. " In the meantime, Garcia is planning for the fratemlt ' ' s first fall rush. " SEO has definitely been one of the most Intense experiences of my life, " he said. " When we were aKiut to launch SEO, jsiKial chair and civfounder) Daniel Sanson and I wx-re worried aKiut how things wvre going to mm out. When we filled up the first niivnng with guys and two TV crews, howxn-cr, wx- knew SEO was going to be okav. and so far it has nirni l out amazing.

( .rcck-; 1907-2007 Alpha Omicron Pi Centennial Celebration On April 12. 2007, the Sigma chapter oi Alpha Omicron Pi kicked off its Centennial weekend celebration, hosting a campus open house. All week long, sisters of AOll hustled about finishing last-minute touches to beautify our chapter house. Floors sparkled, tables exuded elegance, and the smell lit ' fresh flowers filled the air as we opened our de)ors to the UC Berkeley community. Sisters guided members from other chapters, campus leaders and administrative staff t hrough our house, explaining the history behind it every step of the way. Display hoards and scrapbooks which mapped out Sigma ' s history ' were also laid out for all to see. We would like to thank the UC Berkeley community for taking the time to celebrate our Centennial with us. On April 1 3, Sigma hosted a " mocktail " social for alumnae and collegians. An array of tasry drinks and hors d ' oeuvres were ser ed, .ind live music resonated through the chapter house. Sisters were able to meet alumnae from different graduating classes, reaching back to the 1940s. The atmosphere of this event reflected the sophistication of each AOII member. both collegiate and alumnae. The social also engendered a palpable spirit that was carried into the rest of the weekend. The morning of April 14 marked one of the most important events of our Centennial weekend. Sisters of all different ages and histories were able to celebrate the bond that holds AOlIs together - sisterhood. Our ritiial, led by our AOII ' s International President, Susan Danko, reminded each woman present about the strength of sisterhood and its abilit ' to hold steadfast through generations. Later that evening, Sigma hosted our Centennial Rose Ball at Hs Lordships in the Berkeley Marina. Sisters arrived to the e ent dressed beautifully in formal wear, indicating how important this milestone had become for everyone. Delicious appetiiers were provided and a silent auction was held as sisters settled into their seats, preparing for the festivities of the evening. A slideshow of pictures of sisters in their college years, accompanied by music popular in each decade, came after dinner.

Cal ' s 36 IFC tratemiries, in addition to several cultural fraternities and national Panheilenic fraternities, hosted not only sodal events, but also brotherhood, scn ' icc and academic programs. Sigma Chi, for example, had an exciting year with the addition ot 26 nevv- members. The guys took two road trips, participated in several intcrmurai spons teams, and hosted social events such as " Sigma Chi " TOs. " The fraternity ' s crowning achievement, though, was Derby Days, its annual wcelc-long philanthropy event dedicated to promoting community service among the Greek community ' and raising hinds (over 53,6001) for the Oakland Children ' s Hospital and the Huntsman Cancer Institute. This combination ot sixial events, small activities and brotherhiHxl events continue to make Sigma Chi a verv active fraternity. The Greek .system also continues to offer an excellent support system to deal with the rigors of life at Cal. Most fr.itcmities have snidy hours and host annual hicultv dmners. Many also have exam banks, iibranes, and or GPA requirements. Tlicca Chi even has .i pri:e for most improved GPA each semester. Although members arc required to attend certain funct ions such as weekly chapter meetings and community service events, most find themselves wannng to Ixvome more deeply mvolvevl. Wliether attending extra philanthropy or sivial i-vents, tvitonng other menilxTs, or Kvoming an officer, fratcrnitv members put a lot in iinJ get a lot out ol their Creek experience.

Success can Ix: measured a nunilx-r oi different ways, yet our success can not be ennrcly measured at face value. The real measure of a yearbook ' s acliii- ement.s comes many decades down the line, when the Bltu Gold will Ix- used as a tjuide to aid graduates in the recollection of memories from their time at Cal. Our success is also measured by the bonds that we build here; the friendships and lasting relationships K ' twc-en members of our " yearbcKik family " are one of the most valuable accomplishments we will ever make. It truly has been a great privilege to work with sLich a talented staff and editorial Kiard. Thank you. Blue Gold staff and contributors, for all of your hard work and dedication, and for making this a memorable last year for me. It was a real pleasure getting to know each and e ' ery one of you and I wish you the best of luck with next year ' s production and other future endeavors. I am very much indebted to Caitlin Green, my fabulous Managing Editor, for managing both me and the program, and for doing all of the " real " work with this year ' s prixluction. Also, thanks to both you and Nik-I Chang, we were able to submit all of our deadlines on time (for the first time in at least a decade!). I would also like to acknowledge the rest ot my managerial lx)ard, the " pumpkins, " for staying on top of their game tlie whole year as well as for fun get-togethers, like adventurous weekend brunches, which we would often partake in before stamng a work day. I extend my grantude to the wonderful Publicanons Center stafif and nwes, for putting up witli our (occasional) loud talking and for allowing us to stay late at night, well after closing hours, to finish work on proofs. Many thanks to Mike Pe, our fantastic Lauren Studios photographer, for being so cfificient on our busy days and so paoent on the less demanding ones. Without you, where would we have gotten our Sims jokes? Last but certainly not least words aren ' t enough to express my appreciation for Lyman Mower, who joined our yearbook family as our adviser last year and has fought adamantly for the KK)k ' s sunival when things weren ' t working out. Thank you for being incredibly suppottive and opnmisnc, for making sure that all of our paperwork went through, and for maintaining an appropnate, it not overabundant, amount of office humor.
