During a recent visit to Roosevelt High School in Fresno, Chancellor
Greenwood was interviewed about the Web sites Student Affairs
has developed for prospective students. She also described UCSC's
expanding engineering program to reporters from the Santa Cruz
County Sentinel, KSCO-Radio, KSBW-TV, and KCCN-TV.
Manuel Pastor of Latin American and Latino studies praised
a new study by the Public Policy Institute of California about
trends in illegal immigration. The Riverside Press Enterprise
ran a wire-service story about the study, which showed an
ebbing and flowing of undocumented immigrants into California,
and Pastor lauded the findings because they reveal how economic
trends affect the numbers. . . .
Marine biologists Don Croll and Bernie Tershy are
using an innovative, radio-controlled cable cutter that lets them
retrieve data recorders on command from the backs of surfacing
whales. The Contra Costa Times described how the team's
research is far easier with the device, developed at Sandia National
Laboratories in Livermore. . . .
Librarians Deborah Turner and Robert Guillen were
interviewed for a story in the Santa Cruz County Sentinel
on "Students' Voices: Three Decades Strong"--an exhibit
they've curated on the history of student expression at UCSC.
Craig Haney testified recently about conditions at Pelican
Bay State Prison in the trial of a man accused of killing his
cellmate at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville. Haney
said conditions at Pelican Bay's isolation ward, combined with
"abysmal" mental health care, could have exacerbated
the mental condition of the accused, who was imprisoned at Pelican
Bay before the killing.
