DIA art

Students display artwork at Denver International Airport
arah Soriano spent much of her youth in airports traveling back and forth between her parents’ homes in Indiana and Arizona. She used those memories as inspiration for her portion of the “No Place Like Home” exhibit at Denver International Airport (DIA). Soriano, along with four other Electronic Media Arts Design (eMAD) graduate students, have their work on display at DIA through February. The exhibit, located on level six of Terminal East, explores memories of transition, migration, journey, comfort, farewells and returns. “My childhood experiences with my parents has influenced my work for DIA,” says Soriano, a second-year graduate student. “The space I created is trying to recreate memories of my childhood that have begun to fade with time.” The artwork of students David Fodel, Brigid McAuliffe, Allie Pohl and Soriano varies widely. While Soriano’s work feels like the memory of her childhood home, Pohl’s colorful work stacks socks six feet high in the form of a tree. “This high-profile opportunity is exciting on multiple levels,” says eMAD Assistant Professor Laleh Mehran. “It has provided valuable insight into DIA’s exhibition art submission process and has given these Masters of Fine Arts students a new direction in thinking about professional practice and the desire for involvement with large and diverse audiences.” Soriano chose DU’s eMAD program because it allows students to pursue their own interests. “DU works with each student individually in order for us to follow what we are really passionate about, which creates a wonderful diversity between the graduate students.” “No Place Like Home” is located outside of the airport’s secure areas and is open to the public.

Of the 2,500 speeches delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. between 1957 and 1968, two took place on DU’s campus. King addressed members of the community in the University of Denver Arena on the issue of racial equality and desegregation on Jan. 24, 1964 and again on May 18, 1967. On the latter occasion, less than a year before he was assassinated, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate told the assemblage that as a people and a nation, “We all go up together, or we all go down together,” according to an article in the Clarion.

Morgridge College receives $10 million gift
The University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education received a $10 million gift from James “Jim” Cox Kennedy (BSBA ’70) to create the James C. Kennedy Institute for Educational Success. The gift, made in part through the Denver Foundation, will endow three faculty chairs and a program/research endowment in the college. The Kennedy Institute will seek to identify innovative and cost-effective means for promoting and sustaining the educational success of vulnerable children—from early childhood through postsecondary education. “The Morgridge College is undergoing a major transition, one that will position it to play a catalytic role in the resolution of major educational issues our society faces, from early childhood education to K-12 reform to access and affordability issues in higher education,” says Chancellor Robert Coombe. In creating the institute, the gift establishes the James C. Kennedy Endowment for Educational Success and endowed chairs in early childhood learning, urban education and innovative learning technologies. Kennedy is the CEO of Cox Enterprises, which owns 17 newspapers, 80 radio stations and 15 television stations. He’s a past member of DU’s Board of Trustees.

Two Pioneers named to Colorado Sports Hall of Fame
University of Denver alpine skier John Buchar was named the 2008 Colorado Male College Athlete-of-the-Year, the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame announced earlier this month. Buchar will be honored at the 2009 Colorado Sports Hall of Fame banquet on April 14 at the Denver Marriott City Center Hotel. Former DU hockey coach Ralph Backstrom also will be inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame during the event. Buchar, a senior, swept the slalom and giant slalom individual national titles last season, helping the Pioneers win their record 19th NCAA Championship. Buchar was the second DU skier ever to sweep the two events at the championships, following teammate Adam Cole’s accomplishment from 2007. Buchar won five of 11 races in 2008 and was named the 2007–08 DU Male Athlete of the Year.

Grad student dies from carbon monoxide poisoning
The University of Denver is mourning the loss of 23-year-old graduate student Lauren Johnson, who died Jan. 5 of carbon monoxide poisoning at her off-campus apartment. Johnson’s Josephine Place apartment, located at 2035 S. Josephine St., is just east of the DU campus; it is not owned by the University. Carbon monoxide was at lethal levels inside the apartment, according to the Denver Fire Department, who said a faulty furnace exhaust pipe was to blame. Johnson was a first-year graduate student from Vancouver, Wash., studying human rights at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. At a campus service Jan. 9, Johnson’s professors and colleagues praised her passion for human rights, in particular her desire to help battered women and children from around the world. “She was a living expression of human rights,” said international law professor Claude d’Estree.

Some drivers may be green with (parking) envy
Move that Suburban over. There’s no parking here for that Hummer. “The University of Denver has designed a pilot program designating 12 premium parking spots in the E parking garage (off High Street next to Nagel Hall) as parking for environmentally friendly vehicles only. The vehicles allowed to park there must be certified “green” by the Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, which considers fuel mileage and other factors such as the materials used in construction.” “What we hope is this encourages the use of energy efficient and LEED endorsed vehicles by offering what we think of as the premium parking places — the spots that fill up first every morning,” says Parking Services Manager Buddy Knox. The designation should work in a few ways, Knox says. First, it rewards commuters who purchased cars with the environment in mind. Second, it can serve as a reminder to those who aren’t driving fuel-efficient cars that when it comes time to get a new vehicle, DU encourages motorists to think of the environment when they buy. And finally, since the garage serves Nagel Hall residents, it delivers LEED certification points that helped the new residence hall earn a LEED gold award. Drivers who use the E lot and drive a qualifying vehicle can register at Parking Services and Transportation, where they’ll get a “DUGreen” sticker for their rear window. Once affixed, the sticker allows them to park in the reserved spots. The sticker is free, but those who park in the designated spots without a sticker face a $30 parking ticket. The list of approved vehicles is surprising both for the variety of vehicles that are on it and for those that aren’t. Someone who considers Subaru to be a “green” minded company might expect a few models to be on the list. They aren’t. But the list does include a number of inexpensive models, such as the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Aveo, and models by Hyundai and Kia. There’s even a Ford Ranger pickup truck (the electric motor version). The program is just a pilot to see if drivers respond. If it’s successful, the program could be expanded to parking at the new College of Education building and possibly other lots, Knox says.

What is carbon monoxide?
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that has no odor or color, making it impossible to see, taste or smell. At lower levels, according to the agency, “CO causes mild effects that are often mistaken for the flu.” Symptoms can include headaches, vertigo, nausea and fatigue. At higher levels, it can kill before anyone in the residence is even aware it is present. Federal statistics show carbon monoxide poisoning kills more than 500 people a year. Another 15,000 victims are hospitalized each year.

Where does carbon monoxide come from?
The U.S. Fire Administration says carbon monoxide comes from many sources, including gas-fired appliances such as furnaces and water heaters, as well as car exhaust, charcoal grills and even wood-burning fireplaces.

How can I protect myself?
Carbon monoxide detectors are available at a wide range of discount and home improvement stores, ranging from less than $20 to around $50 each. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends at least one alarm installed near sleeping areas and outside bedrooms. In addition, residents should have an annual professional inspection of all fuel-burning appliances and chimneys.


Restaurants lay out new welcome mats at campus doorstep
A few new flavors are greeting students for the New Year. Pita Jungle, a long-time fixture on the west bank of South University Boulevard, has reinvented itself to include Indian cuisine paired with its familiar Mediterranean-style fare. The moderately priced restaurant is now called Aroma Café and Grill. It sports a clean, classic look and promotes a friendly atmosphere, says co-owner Asaid Ibzae. “We wanted to change customer service and the look of the place,” Ibzae says. “Our goal is to make the neighborhood happy.” Aroma Café offers fresh, homemade dishes such as chicken or beef shawarma and biryani, a rice and meat or vegetable dish with Indian spices. The restaurant will operate until 10 p.m., then serve food late at the Hookah café next door, a tobacco and tea Internet emporium. Ibzae and his partners Mohamad Osmani and Raza Qasemi hope the Hookah will become a casual drop-in destination combining exotic-flavored tobaccos with Turkish coffee and Indian and Persian teas. They hope to have live music on weekends but will not serve alcohol. Aroma is at 2017 S. University Blvd. near the southwest corner of Asbury Avenue. For more information call 720-570-1900. The lineup of places near campus with sports themes continues to expand with University Sports Grill, a newcomer to the 1975-era building at 2442 S. University Blvd., previously occupied by Cherry Hills Cleaners. The cleaners relocated to the west side of University Boulevard, giving Sports Grill co-owners Dave Seubert and Lyle Wilson a chance to create a cozy neighborhood-style gathering spot on the east bank between Harvard and Wesley avenues. The grill offers sandwiches, burgers and Mexican fare, but its specialty is Italian, Seubert says. The signature dish is the calzone, he says, which comes in meatball, sausage, combination or vegetarian. “We make everything from scratch — pasta, sauces, bread,” Seubert says. There’s even a $7 blue-plate special that varies daily and is actually served on blue plates as diners in the 1920s once did. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. daily.

DU will be part of Denver’s new bike sharing project
Starting this summer, the University of Denver will be part of a new citywide bike sharing initiative announced Jan. 14 by Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and community partners. The “Denver B-Cycle” project will distribute 500 bikes at 30–40 kiosks across the city. Most will be in the downtown area, but thanks to efforts by the All Undergraduate Student Association (AUSA) and member Zoee Turrill, the DU campus is expected to host two of the kiosks, both located near student residence halls. The effort will be managed by a new nonprofit, Denver Bike Sharing, and funded with a $1 million startup gift from the Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee. Although Denver is one of the first cities in the country to launch such a comprehensive program, Turrill says her research shows cities across Europe have wildly successful programs. Paris, for example, has some 1,500 kiosks and 20,000 bikes in circulation. Turrill and others on the AUSA sustainability committee began looking for a way to encourage bike riding last fall. She says many students she talked with had been to Europe under DU’s Cherrington Global Scholars program and had seen viable bike sharing programs and wanted something similar back home. Under the plan — still in development — frequent users will sign up for memberships; infrequent users can use a credit card to check bikes out. Borrowers swipe their card at a kiosk, which will unlock a bike. Riders can drop the bike off at any kiosk in town. The bikes will be free for short, half-hour trips, with a nominal fee for longer usage.

DU takes on other universities in recycling challenge
For the next few months, the big blue recycling bins spread across campus will give students, faculty and staff a chance to extend the University of Denver’s friendly rivalry with Colorado College. “We are really excited about RecycleMania,” says MJ O’Malley, head of the All Undergraduate Student Association’s Sustainability Committee. “It gives us another chance to beat CC.” RecycleMania, a nationwide recycling contest between 345 universities and states, began in mid-January and goes through March 28. The goal is to reduce waste, increase recycling and raise awareness of DU’s growing push toward sustainability. The contest began in 2001 as a friendly competition between Ohio and Miami universities and has grown each year as more universities across the nation strive for sustainability. The College and University Recycling Council, which runs the annual competition, reports that 80 percent of participating institutions see an increase in recycling collection during and after the contest. The competition has several categories, all aimed at reducing a university’s waste stream. Institutions win by having the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste — by collecting the largest amount of paper, cardboard, bottles and cans in total or per person, or by producing the least amount of solid waste.

Making history
John Carver recalls JFK inauguration
ooking back at Jan. 20, 1961, John Carver knew he had a good seat for a great speech. He didn’t realize he was a witness to history. Carver, professor emeritus at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, has seen a lot in his 90 years. As the nation prepared in January for Barack Obama’s historical inauguration, Carver recalled that one particularly freezing cold day when he was took his place on the stage as John F. Kennedy gave his now-famous inauguration speech. As Kennedy urged Americans to “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country,” Carver was just a few feet away as the newly named assistant secretary of the interior for the incoming Kennedy administration. “It’s hard to separate what you know now from what you knew then, but we knew then — as we know now — there was something pretty special about this candidate, John F. Kennedy, how he captured the crowds,” Carver says. “I heard the speech as everybody else did. Whether I knew that we’d be talking about it 50 years later, I doubt. But I knew it was more than just a passing speech.” Carver, who earned a law degree from Georgetown University in 1947, had worked in private practice and served as assistant attorney general for the state of Idaho and as an administrative assistant to U.S. Sen. Frank Church of Idaho before he was recruited to head the Kennedy campaign in Michigan. “They asked me what I knew about Michigan. I told them nothing,” Carver recalls. “They said, ‘You’re perfect.’ They didn’t want any problems in what was a very divided party at the time.” Carver recalls his time in the campaign and the busy days leading up to the post-election transition from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Kennedy in a video produced with law Professor Don Smith. Carver and Smith have been working on a series of video presentations, uploaded to the Internet, that offers a first-person account of history. “After that long [election] night when we were waiting on results from Michigan and Illinois to come in, and Kennedy had his squeaky, squeaky victory, it wasn’t but a few days after that there was a transition from campaign mode to transition mode,” Carver says on the video. “A sudden realization hit everyone that now that he was elected, he had to do something to get prepared for running the country.” Carver says there may be some similarities between Kennedy’s election and the election of Obama. Both represent times of great transition. And in both cases, Carver says there is a national sense of anticipation and great expectation. But the transition itself, he says, is likely very different. Back in 1960 and 1961, things were less formal. Background checks weren’t as strict and political appointments were handled on a personal basis, with jobs assembled in what was called the “Plum Book.” Today’s transition team likely has to deal with many, many more positions and many times the number of applicants, all facing strict and lengthy vetting. Carver recalls the 1961 transition vividly, rattling off the names of those considered for key posts in the new administration. And he remembers renting a tuxedo for the inaugural ball the night before the big day, only to be shut in, unable to attend, by a howling snowstorm that paralyzed the city. As for inauguration day, Carver sat on the stage behind the president, enduring a dreadfully long benediction, watching poet laureate Robert Frost fumble with his papers in a bitter cold wind, and then, Kennedy’s speech. “I remember it was a moving, inspiring kind of thing,” Carver says in his video recollection. Eventually, Carver ended up as assistant secretary of the interior for public land management. In 1965, under President Johnson, he was promoted to under secretary of the interior, and in 1966 he accepted a post as commissioner on the Federal Power Commission, where he served until 1972, leaving to teach at the University of Denver. His papers are now part of the collection at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and museum in Boston. The video can be found at www.law.du.edu.

Alumnus is therapist turned tea master
In 2000, Greg Fellman (MSW ’98) had been serving as a therapist to sex offenders for two years when he hit burnout. “I wanted to get as far away from sex offenders as possible,” he says. In March 2001, Fellman moved to China, where he began teaching English to adults. While there, he honed his practice of tai chi, an ancient meditative exercise, which in turn led him to discover a new passion: tea. “We practiced martial arts, drank tea, practiced, drank tea,” he says. “It became a part of my lifestyle.” It helped that Fellman was living in Hangzhou, a city outside Shanghai that is famous for its Dragonwell green tea. After two years in China, Fellman returned and opened his own psychotherapy clinic, but he continued to study tea. He ordered rare leaves from China and stayed on top of the industry by reading and talking to tea aficionados. Then, last year, he took a tea leap-of-faith. He opened Seven Cups Denver Chinese Teas at 1882 South Pearl St. He says he’s been thrilled with the community response. “Tea lovers, the real aficionados, are finding me,” says Fellman. “For example, Puer tea is not really well known outside of China, but I have people coming in and asking for it.” Colleen Attoma-Mathews (MSW ’98) has known Fellman for 12 years and says this new business makes sense for him on many levels. “Greg is a definitely a people person,” she says. “He’s very social and very good at introducing new things to people. The tea house is a nice culmination of who Greg is.” Seven Cups is a traditional Chinese tea house and carries Oolong, green, Puer, white, black and scented Chinese teas. Fellman holds free tea tastings every Friday at 3 p.m., including traditional tea ceremonies. He says that one of his goals in opening the shop was to educate the public about high-quality Chinese teas. “Denver doesn’t have anything like this,” he says. “We think of ourselves as a multicultural city, a big city, but we’re missing out if we don’t experience teas and places like this.”

Professor tells history of pizza in new book
Although Carol Helstosky’s father ran the neighborhood restaurant when she was a child in Connecticut, she doesn’t consider herself a foodie. Yet somehow the associate professor of history at DU wrote the third book in Reaktion Books’ the Edible Series, Pizza: A Global History. “I grew up around a restaurant culture and so food always meant something more than food. It told me about people and places and life,” Helstosky says. “I did not, however, learn to cook like a gourmet!” In fact, the professor of 19th and 20th century European history wasn’t sure what to say when she was approached about writing the book, since it isn’t her background. “It became a really fun project, taking a food and seeing how it goes global,” she says. Helstosky found that while pizza originated in Naples, Italy, the food was widely popularized in America. In fact, she found Americans eat nearly 100 acres of pizza each day! “In America it became a standardized food that offered great comfort; people knew what to expect,” she says. “Both main chains of standardized pizza, Dominos and Pizza Hut, were started in the Midwest by non-Italians.” Helstosky says the great thing about pizza is that it can be a gourmet food or a common meal. Either way, she learned that people are passionate about their favorite pizza. In addition to following pizza’s roots in Italy to its standardization in America, Helstosky follows pizza across the world. She found that in many countries, pizza isn’t promoted as an Italian food. Advertisements for Pizza Hut in Poland display an Indian woman peddling pizza. Series editor Adam Smith, who authored the first book, Hamburger, is planning many more. “Each book provides an outline for one type of food or drink, revealing its history and culture on a global scale,” Smith says. Pie, Hot Dog, Lobster and Beer are already in the works.

Immigration issue is subject of DU panel probe
As a University of Denver panel began its yearlong study of immigration, experts warned panel members of the difficulty they face crafting policies that are more practical than political. “I think the dishonesty about this issue is killing us,” said U.S. Attorney Troy Eid. “Let’s just grow up on this issue.” The panel, part of the University’s Strategic Issues Program (SIP), heard Jan. 7 from immigration author and Yale law Professor Peter Schuck. On Jan. 8, panel members heard presentations by Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Eid and local immigration attorney Ann Allott. The panel will hear from more than 30 local and national immigration experts this spring before deliberating this summer to form a consensus on immigration policy reform. A final report is expected before the end of the year. There are at least 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and more than 200,000 entering each year, said Schuck, a nationally recognized immigration expert. He told panel members that there was no way to stop the influx of people entering the country illegally and that efforts to enforce immigration laws have been sporadic and ineffective. Suthers said immigration is a federal issue with serious impacts on state and local government. Colorado’s state and county criminal justice systems spend about $80 million a year prosecuting and jailing criminals from outside the U.S., he said. The majority of cases, he said, come from Mexican drug cartels and criminals reentering the U.S. multiple times. He called for greater border security, a reasonable guest worker program and implementation of a national identification card to track illegal aliens. >> www.du.edu/issues

Scholar award winner sets sights on human rights
Micheline Ishay gets thank you notes from people living in war zones. “They write me for having inspired them. There is nothing more rewarding than that,” says Ishay, a professor in the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. She’s also the winner of the 2007–08 Distinguished Scholar Award, given annually by the University of Denver for significant achievement in scholarship through publications and classroom teaching. One reason for the award is her book, The History of Human Rights: From Ancient Times to the Era of Globalization (University of California Press, 2004), which is used widely in universities around the globe. “It’s exciting to see the book translated into languages I will never be able to read,” she says. “Yet the most heartwarming feeling is when the people living in war zones or under repressive regimes write to thank me,” she says. She says her interest in human rights can be traced to her upbringing. She grew up in Israel and says the “relentless conflicting national aspirations of two peoples” strengthened her human rights worldview. Later, she studied at the European School in Germany and Belgium, where she says she learned of a “new Europe,” one of integration “that would transcend the rival nationalisms” that had culminated in two world wars. “That experience further deepened my understanding of universal values,” she says. Korbel School Dean Tom Farer says Ishay helps make the Josef Korbel School “arguably the leader in human rights studies among all of the country’s professional schools of international affairs.” How hopeful is she that nations can improve human rights? “It would be foolish not to feel some trepidation born of past tragedy. At the same time, we need to be guided by optimism based on the reality of enormous progress in the effort to advance universal human rights. On balance, I am an optimist.”

Battery-powered vehicles help campus safety patrol, save money
Campus Safety is trying to save some green and go green, purchasing two battery-powered vehicles in lieu of new patrol cars. The T3-model vehicles have been in use since late November. T3s come with two rechargeable batteries, each of which last for an eight-hour shift and take three to four hours to recharge, according to Parking Enforcement Officer Chris Meyer. Campus Safety has set them to a maximum speed of 12 mph. The initial investment, at about $11,000 per vehicle, was less than two-thirds the price of purchasing two traditional patrol vehicles, says Don Enloe, head of Campus Safety. Each costs about 20 cents per day to operate, compared to the $25 per day average fuel cost for a single patrol vehicle. After two years of service, Enloe says, the T3s will pay for themselves through savings in fuel costs alone. Aside from clean-energy and cost-efficiency, T3 models have a number of advantages over other clean-energy vehicles, Enloe says. T3s come equipped with warning lights, sirens and a raised platform that affords the operator greater visibility. Additionally, the three-wheeled T3 provides greater stability than a two-wheeled Segway, and the T3’s zero-degree turn radius makes it more maneuverable than a golf cart.
