Economic growth does not have to come at the expense of the environment, said Jos\u00e9 Mar\u00eda Figueres, the former presi- dent of Costa Rica, in a speech at Duke Thursday.
Figueres spoke to students about \u201cDe- mocracy and Environmental Sustainability\u201d in the Goodson Chapel at Mi Gente\u2019s first annual United College Conference.
Figueres, now the chief executive officer of social investment company Concordia 21, discussed opportunities in sustainable markets for economic growth in develop- ing Latin America. He emphasized that the economic crisis demonstrated that policy and government, not financial markets, should facilitate a concrete, environmen- tally-friendly economy.
\u201cDuring the last 20 years, the markets have been kings,\u201d he said. \u201cBut policy is again in the driver\u2019s seat.\u201d
Figueres stressed that the key to creat- ing development opportunities is to shift away from the Latin American paradigm of \u201cbanking on the growth of other countries\u201d and profiting from exports to those coun- tries, which are carbon dependent. Instead, developing Latin American nations should go straight to the use of energy-efficient technologies. He said the planet is now re- source-constrained, which could facilitate innovation.
\u201cIn our countries we don\u2019t need to go the same way in which the developed world has gone about putting together a carbon-
The economic crisis has forced deep cuts in spending at Duke and prompted administrators to consider new ways to raise revenue.
One money-making mechanism that has come into vogue in the last two years is the creation of master\u2019s programs.
In the Pratt School of Engineering alone, the number of master\u2019s students may double to about 600 in the next five years, thanks to a new master\u2019s program.
The program, a Masters of Engineer- ing, is one of four that have thus far been approved. Another four programs will be voted on\u2014and likely approved\u2014at an Aca- demic Council meeting in May. In all, the new degrees\u2014ranging from a Master of Arts in Christian Practices to a Master of Science in Biostatistics\u2014stand to add about 600 graduate students and upwards of $20
The Duke University Medical Center has announced its new partnership with Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, a laboratory testing company. The collaborators publicized their joint venture to commer- cialize biological markers\u2014proteins or other substances that can indicate the presence of a particular condition or disease\u2014in a press release Tuesday.
The venture will be known as \u201cThe Biomarker Fac- tory\u201d and will combine \u201cDuke\u2019s excellence in biomarker discovery with LabCorp\u2019s expertise in the development and commercialization of innovative diagnostic and lab- oratory tools,\u201d according to the statement.
Duke researchers anticipate that LabCorp will be an outstanding partner on both a business and scientific front, said Dr. Rob Califf, vice chancellor for clinical research and director of the Translational Medicine Institute.
Duke has reduced its spending by approximately $60 million this year, Provost Peter Lange said in a pre- sentation to student leaders Wednesday. The adminis- tration still seeks approximately $40 million in reduc-
tions, though this number may change depending on economic conditions in the near future.
Through his slideshow, \u201cFinancial Challenges and Academic Opportuni- ties,\u201d Lange noted that the University is fortunate to have two more years in its three-year cost cutting plan because the remaining cuts will be increasingly dif- ficult. He made the presentation to ap- proximately 15 undergraduates, includ-
Lange said earlier this month that he would be making presentations on the financial cuts in closed meetings to allow for frank dialogue among the faculty. Lange said Wednesday, however, that he had received \u201ca little flack\u201d for the closed sessions and decided to
The 45-minute overview contained the same slides that he showed to the University\u2019s individual schools, Lange said. He did not include the school-specific slides that he adds to the presentation based on the group he is address- ing. He focused on the challenges that Duke has faced as a result of the economic downturn and the administration\u2019s proposed solutions.
Lange noted that the University is making efforts to support workers at the lower end of the payscale. The pre- sentation noted that one-time payments of $1,000 issued this year to employees earning $80,000 or less affect almost 100 percent of biweekly staff, or 4,626 workers; 80 percent of monthly staff, or 5,612 employees and 36 percent of the faculty, or 858 professors.
The one-time payments, combined with a 2.2 percent increase in total compensation due to the increased cost of fringe benefits, will cost the University $37 million. Compared to a 3 percent increase in the University\u2019s salary pool, however, this will save Duke $22 million.

Thousands of travelers stranded by the Icelandic ash cloud began returning to Europe as London\u2019s Heathrow Airport be- came the last major terminal to open after the end of a six-day flight ban that cost air- lines $1.7 billion.
British Airways PLC and Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd., the top long-haul carriers at Heathrow, Europe\u2019s busiest airport, aim to operate all intercontinental services Wednesday after the United Kingdom
\u201cWe came in a mad rush,\u201d said Diana Tucker, 60, as she lined up for a British Airways service from Sydney to London in a bid to get home to the Channel Is- lands after Tuesday\u2019s flight was scrapped. \u201cWe don\u2019t know if we\u2019ll get on. We\u2019re very tired.\u201d

A proposal to refresh the Accept- able Use Policy at Thursday\u2019s Academic Council meeting raised more concerns than expected, leading to a lengthy and at times heated discussion about privacy and security of information on Duke servers.
Although the Council decided to postpone decisions about the policy to its May meeting, it also heard propos- als for the creation of five new gradu- ate and doctoral degree programs and a Masters Advisory Council before en- tering executive session to discuss hon- orary degrees.
The Information Technology Advi- sory Council is attempting to refresh its statement on security and privacy, first released in May 1997, by adding clauses to encompass certain legal, regulatory and compliance issues that have developed since its creation and to account for the present technologi- cal environment.
According to the proposed revisions of the current Acceptable Use Policy, inves- tigations, subpoenas, lawsuits or threat- ened litigation may require Duke by law to provide electronic records or other related information resources to protect the University\u2019s legal interests.
Richard Hain, professor of mathemat- ics, however, brought up a number of concerns about the privacy of the data on
\u201cI\u2019ve had all my files since I\u2019ve been using the Duke server in the late 1980s,\u201d Hain said. \u201cWhat assurance do I have that [my information] is going to be kept from prying eyes?\u201d
Academic Council Chair Craig Henriquez, professor of biomedical engineering, wrote in an e-mail that Hain raised a number of points about who has access to data and e-mails and whether the data could be somehow encrypted to protect against being com- promised by an unauthorized group or individual.
\u201cThe privacy of data and messages on Duke servers cannot be ensured,\u201d Henriquez said. \u201cThis is not to say that Duke is making it less secure, but the policy is letting people know that they need to take responsibility for keeping their own data and passwords secure and private.\u201d
Faculty members proposed making the policy more detailed in order to ad- dress their concerns, but information technology members were hesitant to do so because they said it would be entering the realm of human resources.
The debate concluded by pushing the discussion to the Council\u2019s next meeting in May, allowing ITAC to iron out the questions raised by Hain and other fac- ulty members.
