Stanford accepts 2,427 high school applicants
By THE DAILY NEWS STAFF Stanford offered admission to 2,427 students via electronic notification letters today, several days earlier than the scheduled notification date of Apr. 1. In sum, 34,348 high school students applied to become part of the Class of 2015. This brings Stanford’s current admit rate to nearly 7.1 percent, compared to 7.2 percent last year. “Stanford has been exceedingly fortunate to attract a simply amazing group of applicants from all over the world,” Dean of Admission Richard Shaw told to The Stanford Report. “In our review, we were humbled by the exceptional accomplishments of those candidates who have been admitted, as well as the competitive strength of all of the applicants.” Among the admitted students, 754 had applied through the early action program and received an offer of admission in December. Admitted students have until May 1 to accept the University’s offer. According to the Office of Undergraduate Admission, an additional 1,078 applicants have been placed on the waitlist and will hear from Stanford, pending matriculation results.

Helen Nissenbaum, professor of media, culture and communication at New York University, discussed online privacy and its challenges in her talk, “Why privacy online is different, and why it isn’t,” on Tuesday at the Law School. Hosted by the Stanford Center for Internet and Society, Nissenbaum’s presentation focused on the notion of a transparent privacy policy in which users can choose to give permission to providing information online, called “notice and consent.” Nissenbaum described the growing online environment as a competitive marketplace for information, in which people are able to engage freely with limited interference by third parties such as government regulators. This environment requires flexibility and innovation to maintain its growth and can be puzzling to comprehend. “The online environment provides new types of information that we haven’t been used to engaging with,” Nissenbaum said. “Sometimes we just aren’t sure of how to work with this kind of information.” Other factors that underlie privacy problems and accompany the growth of online communication include new types of actors — the subjects and recipients of information. There are also different modes of capture and distribution of information. Unlike spoken communication, there is no longer a “clear reciprocal flow of information” between speakers, Nissenbaum said. A primary limitation of notice and consent, Nissenbaum argued, is the existence of a transparency paradox. Given that privacy policies are generally extremely abstruse and contain several loopholes, they are not an effective reference for the average user to determine exactly how their information will be maintained and kept private. Nissenbaum cited a personal anecdote of her own experiences in healthcare as an example. When she was asked to sign off on a medical consent form regarding insurance for a surgery, she did not read the entirety of the medical consent form and instead relied on her trust in her caretaker.

Helen Nissenbaum, professor of media, culture and communication at New York University, discussed Internet privacy policy at Tuesday’s talk, hosted by the Center for Internet and Society.
“What I think is missing from transparency and consent is . . . unless we can build this sense of trust and great understanding of this relationship, we can’t rest everything on this concept of transparency and consent,” Nissenbaum said. Second year law student Dennys Antonialli, who attended the talk, said he found Nissenbaum’s ideas particularly engaging because of his long-term interest in online privacy and his familiarity with her work. Antonialli appreciated Nissenbaum’s unique perspective on the issue and her treatment of its many challenges. “It’s always useful to be confronted with new ideas for a better framework,” Antonialli said.“[Her talk] identified a real, serious problem and it certainly has the potential for at

Stanford prepared for potential big earthquake
By JENNY THAI
SENIOR STAFF WRITER

The Tohoku earthquake, which struck the northeast coast of Honshu, Japan on March 11 and triggered a 23-foot tsunami, is not only a tragedy in and of itself, but a grim reminder for seismologists and scientists that earthquakes are one of the most dangerous natural disasters out there, according to Stanford researchers. Based on geological records and written historical accounts, Japanese seismologists anticipated earthquake magnitudes from 7.0 to 8.0 from the Japan Trench. The resulting 9.0 earthquake reveals that despite the wealth of seismic data that has been collect-

ed over the years, earthquakes are capricious events. “Earthquakes don’t happen on a schedule,” said geophysics professor Greg Beroza. “They’re not only unpredictable, the onset is extremely rapid.” Stanford is not invulnerable to these quakes. The two nearest faults that pose the greatest threat to Stanford are the San Andreas and Hayward faults. Although the San Andreas Fault is closer to Stanford, Stanford seismologists are more concerned about the Hayward fault, which, according to geophysics professor Paul Segall,is reaching the end of its average fault slip cycle of 140 years. Segall is currently tackling the difficulty of measuring earth-

quake occurrence by studying crustal deformation and fault mechanics by using precise GPS measurements to measure distortions created by the accumulated stress of faults locking together due to friction. Earthquakes occur when the stress of the faults overcomes the friction of the locked plates. “Take the Hayward fault, the fault that runs directly under Berkeley,” Segall said. “The average distance the fault should move is about one centimeter per year. The Hayward fault hasn’t slipped since 1868, so about 140 years. If you multiply 140 years times one centimeter, you need over a meter’s worth of slip.” These measurements, however

precise, need to be taken with a grain of salt. Segall cautioned against viewing the average cycle calculations as rigid, accurate predictions of seismic activity. “Just because the average is 140 years doesn’t mean it’s going to happen exactly at that average time,” Segall said. “There is a range of variability, which makes prediction rather difficult. However, what geological studies can give us is information that lets us know that there is a higher possibility of an earthquake happening.” According to Segall, an earthquake of a magnitude comparable to that of Japan’s is highly unlike-

The ASSU 12th Undergraduate Senate passed two bills Tuesday evening, confirming Zachary Warma ‘11 as director of the ASSU Publications Board and passing an amendment to the non-discrimination statement of the ASSU Joint bylaws. Senators Carolyn Simmons ‘13 and Ben Jenson ‘12 attended the meeting via conference call. The bill, authored by ASSU Publications Board Assistant Director Alice Nam and sponsored by Senator Madeline Hawes’13, nominated Warma, a former Daily staff member, to replace former director Alex Katz ‘12, who resigned on March 18.As the new director, Warma will oversee funding for student publications on campus. Following his unanimous confirmation, Warma’s first course of action was proposing, with Nam, a high tech center in Old Union where student publications would have access to publication software such as InDesign that is not available in computer clusters on campus. “The goal is not to have it be for publications specifically,” Warma said. “It’s to create a high tech center where publi-

The GUP stipulates that the University must build or improve a number of trails in exchange for permission to expand the campus. To meet this requirement, Stanford seeks to improve the so-called “C1” trails along Alpine Road, which run through Portola Valley and unincorporated San Mateo County, as well as the Arastradero Road or “S1” trail, which runs through Los Altos Hills. The University has sent letters offering up to $8.4 million to San Mateo County and $2.8 million to the town of Portola Valley to fix the Alpine Road trail in addition to the Los Altos Hills offer. Both the C1 and S1 trails cross Stanford property at several points. Of the three offers, the one to Los Altos Hills has created the most controversy among residents, who fear that improving the trail would bring more traffic to the area and lead to an increase in accidents. University representatives were also present at the March 17 city council meeting, where they said they would return with more designs for a proposed retaining wall in response to some residents’ criticisms. Town officials intend to discuss the project with neighborhood groups in the coming weeks and months. “We want to meet the concerns of the neighbors, and many of their concerns are very legitimate,” said Los Alto Hills Mayor Ginger Summit in a March 18 interview with the San Jose Mercury News. “They brought some things to our attention that we had noticed, but hadn’t really addressed, so we will be addressing those.” The city council is expected to revisit the topic in a few months, after the town does “more homework,” Summit said. “We are working closely with Stanford, and Stanford now has shown up at two public hearings,” Summit said. “So they understand the voice of the residents, which I think they never really understood before.”

The Haas Center for Public Service received approximately 150 applicants for its 60 fellowships for summer 2011, according to Fellowships Program Director Jeff Hawthorne.This year saw a spike in applicants to the public interest law fellowship, but the philanthropy fellowship continued to receive a low number of applicants. The Haas Center Undergraduate Fellowship Program offers financial support to students who wish to work on domestic or international public service projects.The program offers fellows a $4,000 base stipend to fund their program, with additional support corresponding to students’ financial need. Though the total amount of funding for this year’s fellows has not been calculated yet, Hawthorne said the center averages $500,000 each year in grants.

Fellows admitted to the program participate in one of 11 fellowships: African Service, Community Arts, Education and Youth Development, Haas Summer, Haas Summer Round II, Philanthropy, Public Interest Law, Stanford Pride, Spirituality, Service, Social Change, Donald A. Strauss and Urban Summer. Though most fellowships involve students working in non-profit organizations, the philanthropy fellowship places students on the funding side of service, said Sarah Scheenstra ‘11, student ambassador for undergraduate fellowships. “Philanthropy is grant-making, so rather than being at a non-profit where you’re depending on funding from other places, often when you’re working in philanthropy you’re working with other organizations to fund their projects,” Scheenstra said. “It’s kind of a flipside to the equation.” Scheenstra participated in the African Service fellowship the summer after her sophomore year, working for the Daily Monitor in Uganda. Following her fellowship, Scheenstra continued to work with the Haas Center to market the fel-

lowship program among students. The fact that the philanthropy fellowship is different from the typical service fellowship could be one reason why fewer students apply to that particular program, Scheenstra said. “It’s not really on people’s radar and they maybe aren’t considering the possibility of philanthropy,” she added. Hawthorne, on the other hand, thinks that the low interest in the philanthropy program is due to the fact that the current student marketing team does not have a student who had participated in that program. The Haas Center will continue to search for a student to represent that fellowship and promote the other fellowships for the coming year. “We’ll continue to use the channels that we have because they’re the most effective avenues for reaching where we think there’s an intersection with some of the coursework that they’re doing,” Hawthorne said.

ly for the San Andreas Fault. “Even the San Andreas cannot produce a 9.0 earthquake, but a 7.0 to 8.0 at most,” Segall said.“But the Cascadia subduction zone — which extends from Canada to northern California — can potentially reach a magnitude of nine.” This news bodes well for Stanford, which, over the years, has undergone a rigorous seismic retrofitting for vulnerable buildings. All new buildings, including the Knight Management Center, have been carefully constructed to withstand earthquakes. “The Knight building uses a buckling restrain brace, a new type of system developed 10 to 15 years ago,”said Greg Deierlein,a civil and environmental engineering professor. “The brace structure helps the building during compression to resist buckling. The new Bio-E building will also have this brace.” The department of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) works with Stanford’s seismologists to develop measures to ensure campus safety. “What Stanford has done over many years is to really try to combine preparedness with what we know about the possibility of seismic activity in the area and attempt to mitigate as many risks as possible,” wrote Lawrence Gibbs, EHS associate vice provost, in an email to The Daily. “These include seismic retrofitting of many of our buildings, adding emergency generators to many buildings to ensure power availability [and] ensuring emergency food and water supplies are available,” he said. Other measures that the department has taken include the installation of fire sprinkler systems in all undergraduate housing residences and most laboratories, automatic seismic gas shutoffs and emergency warning and communication systems. It also ensured that data backup systems are available to protect critical information. More recently, a program to provide for non-structural restraints on high value re-

search equipment has been proposed. “People’s perceptions of earthquakes are often of buildings falling or collapsing completely,” said Mary-Lou Zoback, vice president of Earthquake Risk Applications at Risk Management Solutions, a local risk assessment consulting group. “However, most of the damage that people don’t generally think about is the shaking and disruption of the building’s contents,” she added. “Lab materials and equipment can be damaged, data can be lost.” While the proactive measures implemented can sufficiently help Stanford withstand up to a 7.5 quake from the San Andreas Fault, earthquake researchers and staff emphasize the importance of maintaining vigilance in building inspections and earthquake safety education. “Stanford’s preparedness is based on the probability that an earthquake would impact the whole region,” Gibbs said. “Stanford needs to be able to be self sufficient in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake. Therefore, our programs are focused on attempting to ensure all individuals understand how to prepare and react in event of an earthquake.” Contact Jenny Thai at jthai1@stanford.edu.

Financial manager Raj Bhandari, CEO of Stanford Student Enterprises, reported that the Green Alliance for Innovative Action (GAIA) is requesting $2,000 to reach the $14,000 needed to invite musician K’naan to speak at Vision Earth and FutureFest. Bhandari clarified that while K’naan would be answering questions and not performing. Senator Stewart MacgregorDenis ‘13 suggested the possibility of using money from the ASSU traditions fund if the Senate deemed

that Vision Earth and FutureFest could become Stanford traditions. After disbursing money to the junior and sophomore classes, the fund had $2,500 remaining to subsidize the cost of inviting the musician. The senators agreed to conduct an email vote after they have more time to consider the topic. Macgregor-Denis then shared with the Senate an iPhone version of the ASSU website and solicited feedback on the app. Kannappan and Senator Robin Perani ‘13 then motioned to move the meeting start time to 7:30 p.m. Both have classes end after the current 7 p.m. start time. They requested this change so that they could attend more than half of each of the four remaining meetings in order to retain their position. The Senate unanimously voted to move the meeting to 7:30 p.m. Perani initiated a lengthy discussion when she moved for a suspension of the rules of order so the Senate could reconsider the ROTC advisory question that will appear on the general elections ballot next week. Perani argued that she did not have enough information when the

issue was first put to vote and would have voted differently with the information she has now. The initial bill, proposed by ASSU President Angelina Cardona ‘11, was passed unanimously last month. “I was under the impression that there had been a lot of discussion with the transgender community and with the LGBT community, that there was an agreement and that this would be beneficial to it,” she said. “But this was clearly not the case.” Senator Daniel Khalessi ‘12 echoed Perani’s sentiments. “I don’t even remember voting for this bill,” Khalessi said. “It was two minutes. We steamrolled through it with a meeting we had with the GSC, we didn’t really discuss it.” Despite over an hour of debate, the motion to suspend the rules of order failed to garner the 10 votes necessary to reach the two-thirds majority required to pass the motion. The advisory question will remain on the ballot; voting begins on Apr. 8th. Contact Ivy Nguyen at iknguyen@ stanford.edu.

Ultimately, there is still a role for informed consent. But given that the online world is highly heterogeneous and thickly integrated

with social life, it is necessary to conduct a comparative evaluation to determine how these challenges affect core values of freedom and autonomy, Nissenbaum said. “We should write out substantive rules of expectation that govern the flow of information in those cases,” Nissenbaum said. “We have a lot of knowledge about social life and we can bring it to our benefit,” she added.

FEATURES LONG DISTANCE FORMULA
By MOLLY VORWERCK

I

t’s a common sight to see Stanford couples holding hands in the quad or cuddling up next to each other while sharing a hot chocolate at the CoHo. But what about those students whose sweethearts are more than a five or 10-minute bike ride away? According to The Center for the Study of Long Distance Relationships, there are an estimated 4 to 4.5 million college couples in the United States that are involved in a long distance relationship. Long distance relationships suggest a mixed bag of emotional experiences — weeks, perhaps months, of being apart, finding gushy love letters sent via snail mail in your mailbox and of course, the eventual, ultimately gratifying reunions. But that’s not all there is to it. Ginny Scholtes ‘13 and her boyfriend, Murphy, have been together for two years and seven months.They met while both attending Laguna Hills High School in Laguna Hills, Calif. when they were members of the swim and water polo teams. For Scholtes, the idea of breaking up with her long-time boyfriend never crossed her mind. “We just couldn’t break up,” she recalled with a smile. Despite her faith in their relationship, Scholtes said that the stress of being in a long distance relationship did affect her life as a Stanford student. “It’s very hard to deal with trying to balance two different lives, because in a way you can’t be fully in either one,” she said. “No matter where you are, you’re missing a part of yourself all the time.” In order to keep up the spark in their relationship, Scholtes frequently Skyped and exchanged letters with her boyfriend. However, the relationship put a strain on her social life at Stanford. “I like going out and I love dancing, but for the first two quarters of my freshman year, I wouldn’t go out,” she said. “Before spring quarter [in which I rushed and joined a sorority],I probably went out a total of three times. I just couldn’t deal with seeing other couples everywhere or watching my girlfriends dance with other guys.” Now that Murphy is attending The Culinary Institute of America in Napa, Calif., only a two hour drive away from Palo Alto, the couple gets to see each other nearly every weekend. Some couples don’t have that luxury.What about those those people whose relationships span across the country, perhaps even thousands of miles? Randy Casals ‘13 has been with his girlfriend, Katrina, a freshman at Drexel University, since his junior year of high school. After taking a break last quarter, Casals and Katrina got back together, conscious of the expectations and restrictions of a long distance relationship. “It’s really hard to have as much fun when you’re at school because

you know you’re missing something, and then when you are home [together], you feel rushed because you feel like you have to make up for the time you missed,” he said.“It puts a lot of pressure on the time when you’re together.” Their short break showed him what life would be like if they weren’t together, which he admits would be significantly less stressful, but not as worthwhile as being in a relationship with Katrina. During their break, Casals found himself more engaged with friends that he might have otherwise lost touch with after freshman year, and he went out more on weekends. “[Being in a long distance relationship] definitely makes me less social because I have to devote a portion of time to my relationship,” he said. “So I’m definitely withdrawn, but I don’t see that as a bad thing. If I had a girlfriend on campus, I would be even more withdrawn.” Marcia Levitan ‘13, whose boyfriend is studying abroad this quarter in Florence, Italy, maintains that her preconceived expectations of being in a long distance relationship differ from her actual, temporary experience. “You have to be really patient,” she said.“We Skype a lot, way more than I thought we would, and that’s the only thing that has really kept our relationship going.” Robert Levenson, a professor of psychology and researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, said that in general,the biggest challenge for couples in long distance relationships is dealing with the lack of day-to-day contact, even with the abundance of forms of electronic communication modern technology provides. “Relationships sort of digest the events of every day together,” he said. “Couples tend to get together at some point during the day and get caught up, and they live through the changes of life together. In long distance relationships, it’s really difficult to do that.” In addition to the inherent lack of communication that comes with the distance, Levenson cited the threat of falling prey to other suitors as an additional stress on these relationships. “Obviously, when couples are apart, there are all sorts of temptations,” he said. “I think fidelity, monogamy and whatnot are really challenging because you get lonely and you’re in these environments with all sorts of other options, particularly young people in the social environment of the university.” Because stress, insecurities and temptations abound in the college setting, long distance couples, naturally, have a higher risk of relationship failure than the average couple. “Relationships always fail over the failure to resolve conflict, and anything that makes conflict resolution more difficult, like lack of proximity, is going to make it more likely to fail over the inevitable kinds of conflicts that arise,” he said. “I think the key to making a long distance relationship work is setting realistic expectations

“No matter where you are, you’re missing a part of yourself all the time.
— GINNY SCHOLTES ‘13
rather than extraordinary unrealistic ones. If you set the bar too high, you’re going to be constantly disappointed.” However, Levenson believes that there are some eventual benefits to maintaining a long distance relationship. “The reunions, looking forward to seeing each other, are the potential glue of keeping this type of relationship together,” he said.

According to Annie Osborn ‘14, whose roommate is in a long distance relationship, these relationships seems like an added anxiety in a college student’s already demanding life. “In general, my friends in long distance relationships seem slightly more stressed than my friends in non-long distance relationships,” she said. “I think that with a long distance relationship there are inherent questions of trust and intent, and I think that any ties that you have with somebody back home requires an extra amount of energy and effort to maintain.” But for Casals, the extra energy required in maintaining his relationship is a small price to pay. “It’s worth it when you know that you’re coming home to somebody,” he said. “It’s like a breath of fresh air.” Contact Molly Vorwerck at mvorwerck@stanford.edu

often wonder why I’m always so inspired to write when I’m sitting on an airplane. As I head home this weekend for a breath of cool Minnesota air and some fabulous (and free!) home-cooked meals, I have this constant reminder shaking me of why I should be polite on an airplane. I wonder why on earth the person behind me keeps banging on my seatback. Maybe we all need a bit of a reminder of flying etiquette. At the airport, be courteous to airline personnel and TSA representatives. It is not they who are personally deciding to charge you a baggage fee or arbitrarily not permitting you to carry on that fifth of vodka. Also, they did not cause you to arrive late to the airport, nor should they care for your irresponsibility. So, even if you’re frustrated about something at the beginning of your travel journey, don’t take it out on them. In terms of baggage, it’s courteous to the passengers waiting in line behind you if you make sure your baggage is not overweight prior to arriving at the airport. If you do have a lot of baggage however, please just (wo)man up and pay the baggage fee — they are just going to make you check that huge rollerboard at the gate anyway. While you brave your way through security, prepare in advance by putting valuables or metal objects inside your carry-ons. Wear slip on shoes for ease of security screening. Don’t push yourself forward, but move as quickly and efficiently as possible, just as you would appreciate others to do in front of you. When you get to the gate area, it’s rude to talk loudly on your phone. If you must have a conversation, take it somewhere where there aren’t other people around — who may be trying to read or finish up a bit of work before the flight begins. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people bring stinky food on the airplane. I don’t care what it is — when confined inside a metal tube with re-circulating air, just about any kind of food has a smell. I either dislike it and feel nauseated or like it and want some. So leave your eating to the food courts on the ground. Lastly, be sure you use the restroom before you get on the plane. “Lavs” are only for peeing in my opinion, and should be avoided at all costs if possible. A note on interactions with gate agents: they’re busy, so unless you have to check-in for a connecting flight or some other actual service, don’t bother them.Almost all infor-

mation, including upgrade and standby information, is present on overhead screens. The agent will call your name if they need to talk to you. If you’re one of those “I’ll just flirt my way into first class” types, think again, unless you know how to flirt with a computer.All upgrades are handled electronically, weighing in elite status, fare paid, seniority, etc., so unless you’re genuinely flirting with a cute agent, don’t bother. When about to board, don’t be one of those people who blocks the line before their boarding zone has been called. It’s usually pretty easy to predict the order of boarding — and by predictable I mean it’s always the same. During pre-boarding elderly passengers needing assistance and families with children under the age of five are permitted to board.Then comes first class.You should know if you’re in first class, but if you’re unsure and your ticket doesn’t say something like “First Class” or “Business Elite” then you’re not allowed to board yet. Then come elite members, followed by — and this is the kicker — zones in ascending numerical order. So, if you have a big number four on your boarding pass, don’t line up when they call zone one for boarding. There actually is a method behind the madness, and contrary to what some may think, if you have a seat assignment, it will still be there regardless of when you board the plane. If you’re worried about overhead bin space, your carry-on is probably too big. Gate checking it to your final destination is not the

energy into paying attention to minutiae is what Henry James meant. For one thing, none of us would be able to sustain such a mindset for very long. Our lives would become choked up by clutter, and how many of those details would end up being important anyway? Being a truly perceptive person seems to require a sort of double vision, a mindset flexible enough to grasp particulars and simultaneously see how they fit into the larger picture. How to become this sort of perceptive, dual-minded person is something that I often ponder. For reasons other than the campus bubble, it is something that can be difficult to achieve at Stanford, or any place where we must live life at an accelerated pace. What largerworld reflection do we have time for? We bustle through our activities and our coursework, however irrelevant these spheres of our lives seem to each other. We drift in and out of disconnected groups of friends. We apply for various programs, grants, honors, trying to connect the dots and make them relate to each other.We take advantage of our youthful ability to be spontaneous. And then we step back from all of these details, the details that compose the daily rhythm of our lives, and try to figure out how it all fits. From my standpoint, I don’t often know. The crux, I believe, of attaining the broader perceptiveness that Henry James speaks of, the perceptiveness that is at the heart of a wellutilized education, is to retain our sense of curiosity and open-mindedness about all people and all subjects. Of course, committing ourselves to grasping everything in the world is an unattainable goal, but it is an energizing one nevertheless. That is, as long as we don’t misunderstand and let the details sneak up on us. Not all of them, though. Just the unimportant ones. Was anything in this column lost on you? Talk with Rachel about the small details or the bigger picture at rkolb@stanford.edu.

I agree that the Asian American community should “be a resource for us to explore our Asian American identity.” However, I strongly disagree with his contention that this exploration should be confined to “education and justice.” The idea of how Asian Americans are developing an identity is enormously complex — there is an entire developing field of study devoted to this: Asian American Studies. Although cultural groups play an essential role in education, it is foolish to completely disregard the contributions of social groups.“Cultural” groups are able to host noncultural events and “social” organizations are able to host non-social events. AASA hosts an annual concert and the Lambdas hold typing drives to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the national bone marrow registry. Both of these events draw the community together, but take radically different methodologies. No single group can completely address an issue as multifaceted as the Asian American identity. I found it particularly disappointing that Matsuura stereotyped the Asian Greeks as members of a “glorified social club

where people look the same” by sweepingly accusing members of being ignorant. If he had looked more closely, he would have seen that the Asian Greeks are among the most active in leading other cultural organizations, but this is beside the point. Being a part of the Asian American interest fraternity, I witnessed our brothers’ struggle together to figure out what our identity means for ourselves. I learned much more about the Korean and Vietnamese cultures through social interaction than I ever did at any conference. These interactions helped me shape what aspects of my own ethnic culture I have chosen to embrace and integrate with parts of my American culture, and therefore what I believe it means to be Asian American. Each Asian American affiliated group — from AASA to Sanskriti, to the Greeks, to Team HBV, to the numerous others — has a distinctive role in contributing to our community. We hold protests to end injustices to Stanford workers, host conferences to help immigrant high school students attend college and hold informal discussions explaining different customs and what they mean. As groups explore the ideas of race and ethnicity with different, yet valid approaches, they do not and certainly should not conform to any one person’s definition of identity. It is important for the Asian American and greater Stanford community to realize that the most basic purpose of any group is for its members to grow. I implore everybody to reconsider ways to improve

n my desk, beside stacks of books and pencils, sits a small piece of paper with a quote written on it. It says: “Try to be one of the people on whom nothing is lost.” It’s from Henry James, and I first stumbled across it in a creative writing class a few quarters ago. I took it as good advice then, but occasionally while working I’ll glance up and see it and a heartthudding question will flash across my mind: as I progress through life, how many details are being lost on me? Trying to be one of the people on whom nothing (or at least, very little) is lost, I think, is part of what many of us seek from our education. Yes, when considering Henry James’s literary prowess, his words seem directed toward writers — and, yes, when I think of them I immediately visualize a serious-faced author jotting down notes in his journal, trying to verbally describe as many miniscule life details as possible. But these words can also apply to a medical practitioner trying to decipher a complex set of symptoms to make a diagnosis, or a lawyer or policymaker reading through the specifics of a case file or document. In all of these fields, and indeed in the entire realm of academia, attentiveness to detail becomes an essential skill.And, in that light, becoming “one of the people on whom nothing is lost” can sound like a very attractive life goal. Indeed, the farther along we progress in our educations, the more detail-oriented our schoolwork can require us to become. To cite another writing-related example, remember those general fiveparagraph essays that were emphasized in middle and high school curricula? That simple, straightforward structure served us well enough in those days, but now it does not lend itself well to the more complex arguments that we develop in our later years of education, in which paragraphs, sentences, and even words start functioning at the level of nuance. Formal learning, in many ways, is like wading deeper into a mire: to alter a common adage, the

We want nothing to be lost on us,yet details can act as their own set of blinders
more you discover, the less you feel like you know, and the harder it is to conceptualize what the big picture looks like. We want nothing to be lost on us, yet details can act as their own set of blinders. “Failing to see the forest for the trees” would be an appropriate phrase to describe the stereotype of academics that I have encountered outside of Stanford, a stereotype that describes individuals stuck in trivialities that do not matter to anyone besides the fanatics already immersed in that field. The oft-maligned “Stanford bubble,” perhaps, is an extension (or maybe only a relative?) of this academic stereotype. Described in these terms, the bubble mindset is simply this: we commit ourselves to missing out on none of the details of campus life, all while the broader world zooms by. Losing ourselves in the details of a particular lifestyle can be reassuring, but I doubt that simply pouring

SPORTS AN UGLY WIN
By JACK DUANE Stanford baseball survived two furious St. Mary’s rallies in the 7th and 9th innings last night to pull out a 16-14 victory in the last game of its pre-season. On a chilly night, the No. 11 Cardinal scored early and often, but struggled to keep the Gaels (9-12) off the bases. Stanford racked up 19 hits and committed 6 errors in a wacky game at Sunken Diamond.

BASEBALL SAINT MARY’S 14 STANFORD 16 3/29, Sunken Diamond
Senior pitcher Danny Sandbrink gave Stanford (11-6) three shutout innings in his first start of the season and left the game with a 5-0 lead. The Cardinal was paced by freshman second baseman Lonni Kauppila’s four hits and the defense of sophomore third baseman Stephen Piscotty. Piscotty ended the Gaels threat in the 6th inning with an impressive charging put-out to first on a slow rolling bunt and again in the 7th inning with a diving, unassisted put-out at third base. The Gaels didn’t hit the ball hard all night, but after Sandbrink’s departure, they seemed to find every gap. Junior pitcher A.J. Talt performed well in relief for three innings, but got himself into trouble in the 7th. Stanford’s disaster inning began when Talt hit Markus Melgosa and Cole Norton with pitches. The damage was compounded when Donald Collins reached on a

y now, most followers of women’s college basketball are familiar with Geno Auriemma’s outburst criticizing the fans of his UConn team for not showing up in bigger numbers to the team’s games in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, held at the school’s Storrs, Conn. campus. Auriemma took issue with the fact that less than 6,000 fans showed up to watch the Huskies mercilessly pummel their first two opponents, saying that they were “spoiled” and that they just assumed that the team would be going to the Final Four. Here’s a newsflash for you,Geno: it’s not a terribly unreasonable assumption that UConn, winners of the last two NCAA titles and 112 of its last 113 games, will breeze through the first two rounds of the tournament. UConn is just that good, and Auriemma deserves plenty of credit for making that the case. However, this column isn’t a diatribe about the abject lack of parity in the women’s game, with a handful of elite programs (led by UConn, Stanford and Tennessee) lording it over the rest. Rather, I think it’s high time that Geno Auriemma took his talents to the men’s game. For starters, let’s be realistic: the women’s game will not approach the same level of fan passion and inter-

Senior Jeanette Pohlen leads trio of Cardinal All-Americans
The Associated Press named Stanford senior guard Jeanette Pohlen a first-team All-American yesterday. Junior forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike was placed on the second-team and senior forward Kayla Pedersen was named to the honorable mention squad. In her second season playing the point guard position after coming to Stanford as a shooting guard, Pohlen led the Cardinal to a 29-2 regular season record. In this breakout season, Pohlen averaged 14.6 points and 4.8 assists and was named Pac-10 Player of the Year. She also recently set Stanford’s single-season record for most threepointers (she currently has 93).

Women best Brown in midweek matchup

Senior Sarah Flynn led Stanford (9-1, 1-0 MPSF) with four goals and senior Annie Read had six saves in the Cardinal net. Although the No. 9 Cardinal seemed to struggle on offense at times, its defense held Brown (5-3, 1-1 Ivy League) to single digits on the scoreboard and led the team to victory.

The top-ranked Stanford women’s water polo team continued its undefeated season with victories against No. 8 Arizona State, No. 4 UCLA and No. 15 UC-Davis in recent weeks. After a week off for finals, the team faced Arizona State on March 19 in Tempe,Ariz.Showing little rust, Stanford (18-0, 3-0) surged to a 5-0 first period lead. Another 5-0 run in the third period helped the Cardinal defeat the Sun Devils, 14-3.

After beating the Sun Devils, the Cardinal returned to the Farm for its home opener in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play against No. 4 UCLA.The Bruins, winners of five of the last six NCAA championships, held the Card to a seasonlow five goals. That total was enough, however, as the Cardinal prevailed, 5-2. Dries continued her excellent offensive contributions with a pair of goals, while junior two-meter defender Monica Coughlan tallied her third goal of the season in the first period to give Stanford the early advantage.Although Stanford had the early lead, excellent goalie play from UCLA kept the game close. Freshman Sami Hall had seven stops and junior Caitlin Dement had four saves. Stanford also had strong goaltending as Oland tallied five saves for the Cardinal, holding the Bruins to only two goals, both coming from senior defender Megan Burmeister, an alumnus of the nearby Menlo School. Defeating UCLA improved Stanford’s conference record to 3-0. It was the first time Stanford scored less than nine goals all season.

For whatever reason, fans (and the networks and TV dollars that follow them) would much sooner tune in to a men’s game than a women’s game, and I’d bet my last dollar that, if the UConn men ever hosted an NCAA Tournament game as a top seed, that the arena in Storrs would be standing room only. Because of this disparity,Auriemma should either quit whining or go where the fans are and coach a men’s team. Based on past experience, he’s not going to quit whining anytime soon — he made similar statements when UConn was chasing the record for consecutive victories set by John Wooden’s UCLA teams.Geno is like that annoying kid on the playground

who will do anything to get attention, and when he doesn’t get the same recognition and appreciation as men’s basketball programs, he goes and cries to the media about it. So the obvious solution is then to follow the TV cameras and head to the men’s game.Though I can’t think of an example of a women’s coach making the jump to the men’s game, I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t be possible; after all, it’s the same sport. Given his astounding success at UConn, some coach-needy men’s team out there would certainly hire him (Tennessee would have been an ideal landing place). Auriemma’s team would get all the media attention that he so clearly craves, and he would never again have reason to complain that winning didn’t bring the fans out in droves. I have to admit that a selfish part of me wants this to happen just so I can watch Auriemma’s histrionics when his team hits the inevitable rough stretch. Geno hasn’t had to deal with too much criticism of his coaching — after all, how do you criticize a guy who’s lost one game out of his last 113? Yet, he still apthe final out of the inning and the Cardinal found itself locked in a tight 10-9 ballgame. Kaupilla avenged his misplay in the top of the inning with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. “Baseball is a game of luck,” Kaupilla said. “Luck was in my favor today. It was nice to give the team a little bit of a breather in that situation.” The six-run rally was punctuated by a two-run homer off the bat of senior DH Ben Clowe. With the game seemingly secure going into the ninth inning, the Cardinal defense stumbled, committing four errors and allowing the Gaels to put up five runs. Marquess brought in experienced junior Scott Snodgress to close it out. Snodgress struck out Tim David to secure his second save of the season and end a game that the Cardinal was lucky to win and will be happy to put in the past. The Cardinal begins its Pac-10 slate this Friday against Washington State in Pullman, Wash. Contact Jack Duane at jduane@stanford.edu.

pears to think that what he’s facing is too much, saying (sarcastically) that he should let fans “guest coach” a quarter at a time. Just think about it: if he’s this entertaining and sardonic when he’s outrageously successful, what is it going to look like when he’s in the middle of a four-game losing streak? When his team gets bounced from the tournament in the Sweet 16? When he takes to the podium to announce that Fictional U. has accepted a bid to the NIT? Of course, there’s always the possibility that Auriemma achieves the same heights in the men’s game as he has in his tenure on the women’s sideline in Storrs. If that happens, I will immensely regret the day I wrote this column,as I watch the collective sports media slide inexorably into the orbit of his gigantic ego. Kabir Sawhney wants Geno Auriemma and Pat Summit to both coach at the same school. He also forgot that he is not writing for the Connecticut’s newspaper, The Daily Campus.
