An Amherst graduate who received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington a couple of years ago Klipstich currently works at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Klipstich walked the audience through his project-an atomic clock which will use six lasers to keep time based on the vibration of a cesium atom. Just thirty years ago, he said, standards of time were based on the rotation of the earth. "Even on the short timescale of a week the wind would slow it down," he said, "by a time de tectable with atomic clocks." Not merely time stands to gain accuracy as a result of this development. Other fundamental units of measure, such as the volt, the meter and the gram-because they are all based on frequency measurementcould be fine tuned if Klipstich 's project works out, which he is opti mistic about. A fast clock could do wonders for the secret transfer of small fre quency signals (eyes-only info simulcast during "Oprah" on an in finitesimal frequency your TV is too crude to decipher) The Global Positioning System could also make headway: satellites which can pinpoint your exact location qn earth at light speed. Klipstich said anyone can buy a device that will let them tap into this network. So why does Klipstich want to come to New College if he's got an expensive lab setup elsewhere? "I came from an undergraduate he said. In fact, observation of physics professors at Amherst initially turned him on to physics. He saw them doing a great deal of research, so he delved into research himself, saying that he would be okay with it if that's what he had to do to become a physicist. "But that's not everything," he emphasized. "There are a lot of things I don't know about. If you approach me with something lJ!ce this, I'm interested." Pondering as to why Klipstich would choose to come to New College, where he will have to com pete with a large Humanities department for funding, 2nd-year physics major Adrian Southard con cluded Klipstich is "interested in teaching theory here, exploring." If asked to fill the position, Klipstich expressed interest in teaching a class on electron spin. He also plans to work on "optical pumping," an area of experimental physics important for atomic fre quency measurements. According to Klipstich, optical pumping has potential applications in NMRI in the imaging of empty areas in the human body, like the lungs, which cannot be otherwise contoured.

They are thus no longer under threat of death, though there are now ransom demands. The State Department in sists that all the Americans were on a bird watching trip. The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas seized the Americans, along with an Italian and a group of Columbians, at a rebel roadblock on March 23 on a major highway about 35 miles east from the capital. FARC is Latin America's oldest and largest rebel army, and was blamed for kidnap ping more than 900 people last year in order to bankroll its efforts to topple the state with ran som payments. National USDA: livestock mistreated 1Wo U.S. Department of Agriculture employ ees (one former, one current) described on Thursday how some slaughterhouses routinely ignore federal laws requiring humane treatment of animals before slaughter in order to keep pro duction lines moving quickly. Steve Cockerham, a USDA inspector at a Nebraska plant, said he often saw plant workers cut organs off cattle that were conscious after stun guns failed to work "The; were still blinking and moving. s l'J g .. spokespe rs o n fo r t h e Ame r ican Meat Institute countered saying that the m e a t indus t ry h a s an incentive to treat livestock as humanely as possi ble, since animals stressed immediately before slaughter resulted in substandard meat due to adrenaline. Former USDA veterinarian Lester Friedlander said that meat inspectors were dis couraged by USDA officials from reporting mistreatment.

The whale, though left for dead, was taken to Sea World of San Diego and placed under medical care. The whale, named JJ., was a week old when she arrived in a coma. She spent over a year in recovery, and grew to 19,000 pounds. J.J.'s status updates were continually posted on the Web. After J .J. was released._ scientists realized that her homing transmitters had fallen off. Both of the transmitter packages, each containing two radio transmitters washed ashore.

Leaks of code-cracking in CIA A fo r mer CIA officer was i nd i cted on April 2 on charges of allegedly passing secrets about how the CIA cracked the codes of two unnamed foreign nations and for allegedly attempting to extort $500,000 from the CIA. Douglas Groat worked at the CIA for 16 years in classified covert operations aimed at breaking crypto graphic systems until he was fired in 1996. Groat was held without bond until next Thursday after prosecutors warned that Groat may try to flee the country, given his CIA training in falsifying iden tification. A lawyer for Groat entered a not-guilty plea to the five charges, two of which carry a possible death penalty. April 7, 1998 State Consumer space flight coming soon Zegrahm Space Voyages has already sched uled twice weekly space-flights starting Dec. 1, 2001, pending development and licensing issues. A division of the Seattle based company, Zegrahm is taking reservations at $98,000 a pop for seven unforgettable days of training leading up to a 2 and 1/2 hour flight with a maximum al titude of 62 miles. From this vantage point, adventurers will see the curvature of earth and blackness of space as well as experiencing 2 to 3 minutes of weightlessness. MSNBC quoted one Zegrahm official as saying that pioneers of space travel "gave society the promise that one day everyone will be able to go into space." Animal deaths at new Disney park Disney's newest Orlando theme park Animal Kingdom is suffering an unnatural stretch of ani mal deaths in the weeks leading up to its opening. The tally of death includes four cheetah cubs, two rhinoceroses, two hippopotamuses, three herd animals, and two West African crown cranes that were run over by a tour bus. Disney attributes the deaths to the many unknowns in volved in the management of exotic animals. The USDA has reviewed the deaths and found no infractions of federal animal welfare laws.

The Catalyst News April 7, 1998 3 Forman likes contract system Dance Marat hon raises for local AIDS charity FROM "DEAN" PAGE 1 dynamics of the con t ract system to Fo r man and stress its impor tance "With the contract system ," Second Court R.A. Jen Rehm explained, "we can all do very different things while we 're here." Forman agreed: "There are lots of ways to work things that don't necessarily have to happen within the context of a course ." F orman did express that the con tract system was not infallible "It sounds like a wonderful idea a way to direct and develop learning in yourself. I do think there might be a little danger in coming up with contracts that lack breadth or depth." Forman is not without experi ence in the "active learning" approach. At Rutgers she devel oped a course called Educational Policy Through Service Learning, in which she advo cated both the importance of quality educa t ion i n the u nder gr ad uate level and out-of-class learning. "Typically, tion o icy courses are taught at the gra d u a t e level. You need to educate all stu d en ts." She employed what she called "Service Learning Pedagogy," in which students "focused on major issues that are current. Students did community service placement. They were placed in local school administrative of fices." Students, through their experience, were able to "come back to class able to have first hand experience in discussing the subject we focused on. What they were seeing in service placement related to what issues we were dealing with in class. Forman has also improved the state of research at under graduate Rutgers, demanding scholarship from the faculty and decreasing the tendency to wards passivity in our students." Different programs were devel oped, including an Undergraduate Research Web Site, an augmentation of funds through the Rutgers Undergraduate Research Fellows (in which each faculty member can use up to $1,500 to support student stipends and student re search), and a brochure on what undergraduate research is and why undergraduates should par ticipate." Campus diversity is at the forefront of Forman's concern. She approaches the importance of a diverse community in practi cal terms. "If you re in an atmosphere here that's homoge neous you're not going to be able to function in a society that is diverse. Forman sees diver sity as the subject of both student and faculty recru i tment. in faculty is also very Important. We need to offer them attractive packages so that they can come here. We need to make this a comfortable place for everybody. Forman sug gested that the corporate world could act as a valuable source to wards offering better packages. "Getting corporate funding for these kinds of initiatives is a good route to follow." Students voiced concern about the structure of her posi tion and its relationship to Tampa. "With anything that's occurring on campus ," Forman "the b uck would stop wtth me. In terms of internal campus operations, it would stop with me." e.n as ed abou e poss i bility of creating two assistant pos i t i ons to ease t he work load for the de an of U S F-New College, Forman stated, "at Rutgers what we've been doing is decreasing layers of adminis tration. I'm not interested in being distant from the students and faculty. My history has been breaking administration down." If assistant positions were re quired, Forman explained, they would only exist to handle "ad ministrative managerial paper. Forman agreed with students that "student governance is very important. In general, participa tion in decision making is very important." Forman responded to student fears of a unified USF-New College admissions program by saying that, "with re spect to admissions, you're going to be recruiting from sepa rate groups." Forman did show interest in increasing communi cation between students of New College and students in the University Program. Forman wants "more cohesion in a way that does not undermine either of the two programs and I think that's a tricky thing to do. We need to ask: 'Are there ways to have a conversation that actually adds to what both of you are doing?"' Forman noted, "it's possible to be part of a larger in by making sure people m Tampa understand the kind of things going on here and what needs you have." Forman ex plained the in).portance raising such relations, noting that the UP by Nick Napolitano academic structure could be exCollege Hall hosted this year's Dance posed to other methods.

Immed i ately after t h e fo rum, a separate two-h ou r m eetin g wa s held between Forman and mem bers of New College faculty. While students made their way down to the Four Winds Cafe to discuss their views on Forman, faculty pressed questions on na tional publicity for New College, multiculturalism and faculty di versity, the overwhelming lack of funds which has caused some faculty to spend out of their own pockets to support the education of their students, and how Forman would go about obtain ing such financial support. Forman envisioned a scheme in which students of New College left the academic sector to partic ipate in society in ways that would prove worthwhile invest ments to such communities as the Foundation. Students can look forward to future interviews with other can didates. If any in attendance still have their evaluation reports on Susan Forman, they can be turned in to Margaret Hughes or Tom Barnard in boxes 712 and however. "We have had a helluva time raising m o n e y," sa id organizer Margaret Hoppe who w a s i n i tially d is a ppo int ed with the campus response to the event. I gu e s s maybe t he morale of the school has g on e d own, or something. People are just not wanting to put forth the effort." In recent years, interest in the Dance Marathon indeed seems to have waned. The April '95 marathon only saw two dancers finish the traditionally 24-hour dance marathon, while the following year found the marathon reduced to twelve hours. Last year there was no dance marathon. Compare this to the Dance Marathon of 1991 which saw 21 of the 25 participants dance for the full 24 hours and raise nearly $5,000. This year's marathon has succeeded in resurrecting the marathon and infusing it with new energy. "It's just such a good thing to bring back to the school,'' said Hoppe, who was inspired to helm the event after talking to her sister, NC alum Dorothy Hoppe, who was a major dance marathon organizer during her time at New College. "I also don't think this school does a lot in the way of charity," continued Hoppe. "We have a lot of parties, but that's what they are, just parties, for the school to enjoy. The fact that we have this great party atmos phere means that we can use parties for a cause." 146 respectively. All hail Brak !" King Rockus

The Catalyst Campus Life In Africa, Clinton celebrates getting off !"CLINTON" FROM PAGE 1 I half have engaged in a vast enter prise to suppress evidence in this case and otherwise corrupt these proceedings." The documents sought to show a pattern of women either benefiting or suffering harm on the job, de pending on their response to Clinton's alleged advances. They included former White House intern Monica Lewinsky's subpoena and affidavit, despite Wright's earlier decision ruling Lewinsky-related evidence nonessential" to the Jones case. Bennett had the final word, fil ing 200 pages of legal documents a week later, once again arguing Jones had failed to establish any legal claim worthy of trial. He called her case "little more than a web of deceit and distortions" and "a political1y motivated attack on President Clinton without legal merit that should be dismissed." Clinton got the news of the judge's decision to throw out the case over the phone in Senegal form Bennett. When told the decision, the President first a s k e d if it was an April Fool s joke, according to White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry. Public reaction from the trav eling White House was subdued. McCurry, in Africa with the presi dent, delivered a carefully worded reaction saying the president was "pleased to receive the vindication he has long waited for." But behind the scenes, the president appeared more than "pleased." A FOX News came r a captured Clinton dancing while playing an African drum and smoking a cigar. In her decision, Wright said that if Clinton did what Jones claimed, it was "offensive and boor ish," but it was not sexual assault. And there was no evidence Jones suffered on the job because of the al1eged incident, the judge ruled. As for the attempt by Jones's lawyers to bring in Clinton's rela tionship with Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey and others, Wright wrote, "Whether other women may have been sub jected to workplace harassment and whether such evidence has allege dly been s upp r es se d do es n o t ch a n ge the fact th a t the plaintiff has failed to demonstrate that she has a case worthy of submitting to a jury." The Rutherford Institute, a con servative group footing the legal bills for Jones's case, said of the de cision in a written statement: "We respectfully but firmly disagree." It is considering an appeal. "That's the client's decision," John Whitehead, of the Rutherford Institute, said at a news conference. "We are looking at the options. We feel that there is good opportunity for appeal here. We feel that Paula Jones does have the fire. I mean, it's very difficult; but again, she's gone this far--really gone through the hard trials of this case." Jones spokeswoman Susan Carpenter McMillan said Jones was ');hocked," "disappointed" and "very, very hurt" by the ruling. Jones's lawyers in Dallas chal lenged the suggestion that the ruling was a vindication of the President.

. 6 The Catalyst Opinions April 7, 1998 Lost i n S p ace quite hokey, but rather amusing by Charles Cboi The only thing I knew of Lost in Space when I went into the theater (other than memes such as "Danger, Will Robinson" that are lodged in my unconscious like spinach stuck in-between my teeth) was the one episode with a giant sen tient carrot that I saw when I was a kid. Big names such as William Hurt (The Big Chill, Altered States) as Professor John Robinson, Gary Oldman (Rosencrantz and Guildenstem are Dead, Dracula) as Dr. Zachary Smith, Matt LeBlanc (of NBC sitcom Friends fame) as Major Don West, and Heather Graham (Twin Peaks, Boogie Nights) as Judy Robinson prompted me to watch the movie for the sheer novelty factor. How many times in your life are you going to see Matt LeBlanc and Gary Oldman together, after all? The premise of the film is simple. The fact that the planet has depleted almost all of its natural resources is unknown to the general population. The family Robinson is to travel in the Jupiter 2 spaceship to try to discover an other habitable planet. A terrorist faction, however, has discovered the secret and has sabotaged the hyperspace technology of others in order to develop their own teleportation gate as edge over their competition. Due to sabotage on part of Dr. Smith, they are forced to make a blind jump which leaves them, ta-da, "lost in space." The "eye candy" factor played an important role in the fUm, as is expected of almost every sci-fi flick nowadays. Though I usually appreci ate as much suspension-of-disbelief as possible when it comes to computer graphics, for the most part I had no complaints, since I didn't re ally take the fUm seriously anyway. The most annoying bit of superfluous computer graphics had to be the 'cute' monkey; sweet enough to rot my teeth. And whoever created the melodra matic music score should be dragged out in the street and shot. The fllm was amusing enough. I would've enjoyed it a lot more if I was a ten year-old, but even so the sheer hokum of it kept me going. It took some time to heat up; most of the first 30 minutes is obligatory exposition. The movie didn't take off for me until the word "Shit" (and if you see the movie, you ll know what I mean). Contribution: Rename everything by Graham Strouse around n a m i ng b uil d i n gs and So I'm k.ickin' back. in 11\Y whatnot 1 thought I'd suggest riou a p p o i 1c a i n e c a e th e moth e r unit's s o ftware c o mfor a few of N e w College's pany in Jers e y and I get thi s m ore notable structures and inphone call from Jesus sayin stitutions that NC's powers-that-be have First of all, I think it's highdecried that the Pei Dorms shall time that the New CoJJege hence no longer be known as deanship be re-dubbed the C o urt s Uno, Dos, a n d Tres, and "Dean Gordon E.

Life in a but wouldn't the world just be a cube farm shuts down most better place with more neuro l ogical functions. But I'm Professor Michalsons? thinkin', while ya'll are going Secondly, I propose that the Th e savior and t h e a l um One a nd the sam e ? publicatio n offi c e be renamed, well, 1 can think of a bunch of e i o rnm after, and while none of them are d ead, mos t of the m ar e n o longer students, in large part due to the fact that they rat holed in the pub office for months on end. This would, in my opinion, justify memorial status for said individua ls, but it might also constitute libel on my part, so maybe I'll leave this one alone. Next one's easy. It's high time that the NC Fitness Center be re-named "The Graham Strouse Memorial House of Pain." Not to float my own boat, but hey, I left enough sweat in that pastel-green palace to fill the Lota Mundy Memoria l Swimming Pool. Finally, as a tribute to the finest cultural anthropologist I have known in my brief and largely unproductive life, I hereby suggest that this fine publication be renamed "The Professor Vesperi Memorial Catalyst." And let us pray that it does not in fact prove the death of her. Hell, J' ve got Jesus right here on line 2. I'll have him put in a word for her. Okay, they're dumb names, but it's not like I'm suggesting that the school call the new dorm complex "Dort," or some thing dopey ]ike that There was a lot of chemistry between the ac tors that helped carry the movie between the REALLY cheesy scenes, and there was actually some pretty clever dialogue. (Gary Oldman is at his best when he doesn t have to actually open his mouth.) Whoever played the voice actor for the Robot was absolutely inspired, for some belly laughs over the more surreal scenes. Also, there are a set of really intriguing plot twists near the end of the movie concerning time travel. But all that is nicely balanced by crap. There's this one scene where the father uses one of his estranged son's trophies as a weapon against the bad guys, and I wanted to say, "The symbolic attack! Why, the villains will NEVER expect that! In the end, I have to say that Lost in Space was definitely a hoot. The theater gave out free samples of the soundtrack on opening night, so if anyone wants it, just ask. Oh, also visit the website http: 1/dangerwillrobinson.lycos. com, and you too can be embarrassed when your computer loudly states "Danger, Will Robinson! in a crowded room.

What more could you ask for in a power-pop alt-rock band? A lot actually. Colorsound reminded me a little of Matthew Sweet and a little of Nirvana, but failed to make much of an impression. What did make an impression is the fact people like him because he is so bad that he's funny. Harvey gives new meaning to the term cheesy, but he drew a tremendous crowd and they were all into it, which is kind of strange when the man writes lyrics like "talkin' 'bout the Taurus, talkin' 'bout the bully-bull-bull." Buddy Guy The room was already packed Pee Shy live at SXSW with music industhat the drummer wa able to do a roll with one hand. His drumming skills were incredible and made the show worth watching. I was lucky enough to catch the great Buddy Guy's amazing acou tic performance at a special BMG party the first night of SXSW. When Guy took the stage, the room went dead silent. It was amazing to see him play acoustic because he al most never performs that way The effect mesmerized the audience. Guy played some of his own stuff as well as an interpretation if a John Lee Hooker piece. He played with his eyes closed, his hands moving as though guided by a great piritual force, finding perfect note to res onate in the ears of his privileged audience. His performance was the kind that hits you in the pit of your stomach and you like it. Following each try-types when they opened the doors to the maddening crowd of alternakids who were claw ing at the door to the club, hoping to ee these dinosaurs in all their glory. As the door opened, the kids came in like stampeding cattle, filtering in amongst the execs trying to get in front of the extremely high stage. Sonic Youth played a lot of material from the upcoming record, which, thankfully, seems to be a return to the Sonic Youth of the Sister variety. Most of their songs were pretty long and over-done. The more I lis tened to them play, the more I realized how much they are the Grateful Dead of the alternative world-they just don't know when to top. The show lasted well over an hour, but the crowd seemed pretty happy with it. Had they pent a lit tle less time making noise with their instruments in the name of art, I probably would have liked it Come Come overcame equipment problems to de liver an all-around excellent show Thalia Zedek and Chris Brokaw were dead-on with their play ing and singing, often trading lead guitar and vocals. One of the most brilliant and powerful songwriting teams in music today, Zedek and Brokaw did nothing apart from astound as their tremendou work thun dered through the quaint Electric Lounge. This was a powerful perfor mance, but it was cut short, prob-Come s Thnlia Zedek ably due to ong he received a warm round of applau e and at the end of his short set he received a much de served standing ovation. Amazing is an under tatement. Robyn Hitchcock When this tall, grey-haired Englishman took the stage at the State Theater, we knew we were in for a treat. Singing songs about, among other things; sex and Gene Hackman, Hitchcock blessed the audience with fine music and finer wit. He reminded me of a musical Spalding Grey, constantly regaling the audience with funny sto ries between perfect songs. On certain numbers, he was accompanied by "Timmy" on guitar and better. Spacehog Blowing away the execs at the Interview magazine par-tay were some true rock stars: Spacehog. In a Chine e-themed celebration of food and style in promotion of their new record, The Chinese Album, Spacehog took command of the ship and steered it into the uncharted waters of mass hysteria. They mixed a little bit of humor with straight-up rock and roll and even offered listeners orne fortune cookies on the way out.
