Students are getting wired by going

L'K has two grants dealing with
wireless classrooms and distance

_]IIII (iriffioen and Brent Scales are
two computer science professors using
wireless classroom technology to
teach their students.

“\Vith this technology, a student
could be sitting anywhere and still see,
hear and interact with a teacher.
(irifiioen said.

In this kind of classroom, all the
students have laptops with a wireless
network connection to a central access

The teacher has a laptop and
drawing pad. The professor could pItt
slides, audio, video and any other notes
onto the screen. called a whiteboard.

The students would be able to see
and interact with this information.

They could even add their own
notes and pictures made with a mouse.

“The process is truly interactive,
and students could have interactive
notes,” (iriffioen said.

The students can replay the class

notes, at a later time, said (irif.fioen

This project, currently in \\'hite

professors to create a wireless

Another advantage of these sys—
tems is that instead of wiring several
classrooms with network connec-
tions. there only needs to be one
central access point for modem

Barbie creator sneaks (“It

ltosted a conference on woman's
self~illt:tgc, they chose art interest-
ittg guest: Barbie's utother.

Ruth llattdler, tltc 81—year—old
creator of tlte Barbie doll, knew
slte was ottto something good
when slte conceived of Barbie W
years ago, bttt ltad no idea that
Barbie would becoute tltc cult fig-
ure that site is today.

Blue—eyed, blonde and irregular—
ly proportioned Barbie has increas-
iitgly come uttder attack as women's
images become a heated issue.

Alauy .lewish woutett who
atteitded the conference on Mon—
day see Barbie as sotttething they
once aspired to he btrt eventually
learned that tltey could not attain.

"\Vhat people have interpreted
froru her is \ery individual," Hau-
dlcr said. She said site did not cre-
ate Barbie as art object of aspira—
tion, bttt as a doll that little girls

can project their fatttasics onto.
Handler's goal was to make Barbie
as non-specific as possible.

Handler got the idea oftltc Bar--
bie doll froitt three Lilli dolls she
bought in Switzerland for her
daughter, Barbara.

The Lilli dolls were tall, thin
and had large breasts.

It did not occur to Handler to
change Barbie's proportiotts,
because she wanted the doll to
look good in clothing. At the sattte
time, Hartdlcr said that the way
Barbie looks is “unimportant.“

In response to critics who
believe that Barbie is a source of
oppression, Handler said, “Many
of today‘s young achievers can
trace their success hack to their
days of playing with Barbie."

After all, Barbie has been a
doctor, a teacher, an astronaut,
etc; there has also been a fat Bare
hie, a dreadlocked Barbie, a talk-
ing Barbie and even a breast—
reduccd Barbie.

Handler said many women
treat her with idol status once they

find ottt that she created Barbie.
Slowly, Handler said. she rcalilcd
that Barbie was tuore than jttst a
doll; slte represents something
tttuclt rttore itttportaut.

“Barbie as an icon ltas shaped
ottr image of women," said Natak
ie Stern, .t _lewislt (Iatupus Service
(Iorps l'iellow. \llhough she
expected the conference to be .t

“Barbie bashing least," it was
tuorc than that.
Handler has survived rttarty

experiences that young wonten catt
learn front.

\Vhen making presentations,
she‘d recall to audiences that she
would ltavc to walk through
kitchens, because women were not
allowed to use the frortt door.

One year, Handler became the
first woman vice president on the
board of the Toy Association.
Traditionally, the vice president
becomes the president the next
year. However, for the first time,
the board also promoted a titan to
the vice president position. \\'hen
it was time for Handler to becoutc

president, the board chose the
man instead.

More importantly, Handler has
survived breast cattcer and was the
first to mass-market a prosthetic

in [970, Handler found ottt she
had breast cancer. After surgery,
Handler went back to work.

Notlting was said ottt loud about
her illness, she recalls; everything
was whispered. She cried at the
least instigation. .

“I had lost my image of being a
woman. 1 was trying to stay feutiniue
iii a man‘s world," Handler said.

In 197;. Handler was pushed
out of Mattel, the toy company
that she ctr—founded with her hits-
band lilliot and his friend, Harold
Manson. Handler was depressed,
until it occttrred to her to make
prosthetic breasts for women who
needed them.

The first breast to cotttc out
was called Nearly Me. It was made
ottt of contoured foam, silicone
gel and art outer-skin of
polyurethane filtu.

Makeup stylist I0 the stars

By Francince Parnes
Hie .‘lumlilu'd I’I'c'is‘

liobbi Brown's job is fast‘paced
and glamorous, but her private life
is decidedly domestic.

()n a typical day at her subur-
ban New jersey home, she gets up
early to squeeze in some time to
work up a sweat on the treadmill
before her sons, Dylan, 7, and
Dakota, 5. get up for school.

“( )therwise, I don’t do it," says
Brow n, makeup stylist to the stars.
“Then I get the kids ready for
school and drop them off, then I
run in to do a shoot with Mira
Sorvino or \Vhitney Ilouston,
then I come back to school for a
teacher's meeting."

No wonder she sweats.

After one such day, the chauf—
feuring superinoin has shed her
shoes and wrapped herself in a
green terry cloth robe. She’s cozy
on the den couch with Dakota, the
better to watch The Nets, her
hometown hoopsters.

“Mira Sorvino asked me today
to do her makeup for the ()scars,”
says Brown, who has painted the

faces of Meg Ryan, Andie Mac-
Dowell, Kathie Lee Gifford and
Susan Sarandon.

She juggles appointments in a
day planner, chockablock with
makeup assignments for celebri-
ties, magazine photo shoots ——- or
perhaps tonight’s guest on the
David Letterman show.

’l‘wice yearly at New York’s
Fashion \Veek collections, she's
backstage perfectin r supermodels
(as it), armed with er entourage
of H) makeup artists and two man-
icurists. Spare time, she’s got a
new Bobbi fragrance, and she‘s
pregnant, with the baby scheduled
to arrive this summer.

The tools of Brown’s trade are
natural-looking cosmetics, Bobbi
Brown F.ssentials.

Oprah Winfrey and Naomi
Campbell are fans of foundation
sticks No. () (golden) and 7
(almond); The Spice Girls like
pressed powder; Sandra Bullock
gets lacquered with pink sheer
polish. And (lhicago Bulls star
Dennis Rodman shops for No. 5
bronze shimmer lipstick, .\'o. 3
bronzer and No. 5. moss eye


If Rodman is oh-so glamorous,
Brown's not.

“This is my life, it’s what I've
done for the past IS years," Brown
says. “I’m happy with what I look
like, but I’m not the glamour
queen. It’s not in my bones.”

“I am definitely the woman
who wears sensible shoes," says
Brown, whose preferred uniform
is jeans, a white T-shirt and penny
loafers sans socks.

\Vhen she can get away with it.

“I used to be able to arrive
(backstage) at a fashion show in
my jeans and a ponytail, but now
every model has their own crew
and a newsmagazine following
them," Brown says. “I hate to say
I'm one ofthose people, but now
even the makeup artist has to
come with makeup done. livery-
one in the fashion business is a
celebrity these days."

Brown, 40, is married to lawyer
and real estate developer Steven
l’lofker, 41, who “actually likes
the way I look without makeup."

She was groomed for her call—
ing at age 5, when her mother

handed her makeup and paper
with instructions, “go paint." Says
Brown, “I painted my face and all
my dolls’ faces. My dad says I also
painted the walls and sink.“

After graduation from Finer—
son (lollege in Boston, where she
studied theatrical makeup, Brown
started as an assistant to a Man-
hattan makeup artist.

“My first job was for Glamour
magazine, for a black-and—white
pa re," she says. “I had to make up
a dancer's feet, which were totally
dirty, beat-up, dry and calloused."

“It was yucky, probably one of
the most disgusting things I've
ever done. Then I had to wait
about four months for the pictures
to come out. It was the biggest
thrill to see my name."

Then came bigger thrills. F.ver
hear of'l‘he Rolling Stones.:

“After I finished the makeup
(for a Rolling Stones album
cover), the stylist handed them
their clothes and told them to
change. All of a sudden, I found
myself in a dressing room with
The Rolling Stones in their
underwear. l was 25 years old."

Your partner is making you as nervous as
the gambling junkie praying for both free
throws to go in while the team is ahead by nine
points with two seconds left in the game. Mas-
sive doses onitamin B could help relieve your
anxiety. Be thankful that you are almost to the
point where love is beginning to take priority
over sex, phobias and eating disorders.

Taurus April 21-May 20

Be wary of advice concerning physical reha—
bilitation from ANY San Francisco 4‘)er fan, or
at least plot out an excuse ifyou are caught. Love
is essential for happiness. People think their star
sign is all there is to astrology. You were advised
as to what kind ofrelationship it was going to be
in advance. 'l‘here is a difference between listen—
ing and hearing. Develop trust.

Gemini May 21-June 21

Choosing the behavior that involves the least
resistance won't lead you to self—satisfaction in
the long run, but it helps with the responsibility
shirking attitudes prevalent in the Washington,
D.(I., area. Geographical cures really won’t fix
the problem. The problem can only be moder—
ated with laser surgery. Go for the tattoo.

honest about your virtuous faults, and make a

piss off your deepest enemies, as if they care in

Does your adviser reminds you of your
mother saying, “lust wait until your father gets
home?" Pre-registration is quickly approaching.
Your dilemma is how are you going to ask your
parents for tuition again when you should’ve
graduated three semesters ago? This synopsis is
an atlas of your blueprints for life, unless you
are lucky enough to be involved in an accident.

Iiirno Aug. 23-8ept. 22

Your conduct is your own. Your life forces
you to decide questions of right and wrong,
truth or falsity, etc. So far, you have tested the
waters on both sides of the faucet, but your
fate is not changing until you do something
about it. The question is when, if not why?

But seriously, your priorities may be a bit
skewed. By taking the positive approach to the
situation, adapting to a few — just a few -— of
society's cultural morals, your demeanor will
be more endearing. Be aware of the forks in
the road, as the
