“IIlVEI‘SltlBS around country connecting

By Delmar Watkins
Staff ll’r'rttt

UK researchers will soon be
able to use the resources of other
universities at speeds unheard of
by current standards.

An alliance of57 universities will
create the National 'I‘echnological
(Srid, a computational infrastruc-
ture allowing researchers to use
resources from other universities.

“It will do 100 times more for
researchers than the current sys-
tem," said John Connolly, direc-
tor of the UK Center of the Coin-
putational Alliance.

This project will make a network

100 times faster than the Internet
for researchers trying to use remote
resources, Connolly said.

Hardware and software not
found on campus could be accessed
if anyone in the alliance has it.

“I Itindreds of researchers at
UK could potentially get access to
more powerful tools to do their
jobs," he said.

This project will allow
researchers at UK to “compute with
the really big supercomputers at the
University of Illinois at Urbana,"

James McDonough, a mechanical

engineering professor said.
“\Vc also have a lot of students
that compute with L'niversity of Illi-

nois at Urbana,” McDonough said.

One application of the system
at UK would include the design of
nanornaterials — computers or
machines designed for extremely
small scales used in electronics,
Connolly said.

“Other research at L'K will
focus on fluid dynamics, computa—
tional simulations of how the stars
move and medical applications,
like image analysis and advanced
disease diagnosis," Connolly said.

“I“.ngineerin problems will
also be solved y tising this net—
work, because of it‘s ability to deal
with high bandwidth or data
transfer rate by the network,"

.\Icl)onough said.

The project's uses are not lini—
ited to scientific research. though.

English professor Kevin Kier—
nen‘s Beowulf manuscript project
will be enhanced by the network,
Connolly said.

The Beowulf project seeks to
ptit the story‘s rare original
manuscript into digital format, so
scholars froiu around the world
can get high—definition pictures of
the manuscript.

The distribution of rare texts
electronically “may be the future
of how libraries will look." Con»
nolly said.

“The National Science Foun-

dation will e\entti.tlly introduce
technology created by the alliance
ittto all sectors of society. The
foundation funded the alliance
with a $170 million grant given to
the L'nncrsity of Illinois at
L‘rbana," he said.

The l'niicrsity of llliiiois at
L‘rbana is leading the alliance.
called the Partnership for \dvanced
Computational Infrastructure.

“The system should be in place
within .1 ycar." .\lcl)onough said.
“Only two partnerships in the
L'nited States are like the
Alliance," \lcl)onotigh said. "The
other partnership is .it the L‘niyei‘-
sity ofS.iii Diego."

L'K, dubbed the “( Iotnputation—
.il gateway to the Southeast." was
the only tinnersity in the southeast
invited into the partnership. "par—
ti.illy due to its past relationship
with the National (Itllllpllltllltilltll
Science Alliance." (:otmolly said.

"l“.lt‘ll of the partners in this
alliance brings expertise, resources
and .i commitment of time and
energy to our efforts." said Larry

The waiting game

By Jessica Coy


llBlIlS save lives

By Ellen Lord
Stu/f ll 'ritr’r

Jenny Miller knows of 55,050
people who are waiting for their
pagers to go off. They carry them
everywhere, listening for 3 age in
the shower and sleeping wit them
on the bed stands by their heads.

They are all waiting for someone
to save their lives.

They're in need of organ trans—

lants and await news of a heart,
lbng, kidney. liver. pancreas or
small intestine donation from a

And they're waiting unnecessarily.

Last year, 20,000 individuals
were eli ible to potentially donate
organs, But only 4,800 families of
those eligible a reed to contribute
organs, said Mil er, director of edu-
cation at the Kentucky Organ
Donor Affiliates.

_ “A new name is added to the
waiting list every 20 minutes,”
Miller said. And seven to nine co-
ple die everyday because they on‘t
get the organs th need, she said.

At the Mid- crica College
Health Association’s 32nd annual
meetin this weekend, Miller spoke
about ODA’s role in Kentucky
and the surrounding area. The
organization aimg “to ensure that

every family is given the option” of
donation at the time of their family
member’s death, she said.

Because of KODA's involve-
ment, Kentucky had a 50 percent
donation consent rate, compared to
the 25-30 percent in 1990, Miller
said. The current national average
is also 25—30 percent. Last year 317
organs became available from 90
Kentucky donors, Miller said.

“Our whole point is people need
to talk about (donation) before-
hand. They don't think anyone is
going to die," said Jackie Decroo, a
s ecial services coordinator at

ODA. As part ofa national aware—
ness program, she visits high
schools in eastern Kentucky and
talks to students about consenting
to donate their organs by signing
the back of their driver‘s licenses.

Miller cited several misunder-
standings, such as dismemberment
and conflicts with religion, that pre-
vent people from signing the back
of their license.

“All major religions support
organ donations,” she said. And
“anything we would procure would
not affect the body‘s a pearance"

organ donor card. Miller said, how-
ever, that “the physician who
declares brain death cannot have
anything to do with the transplant
program." In addition, KODA
never takes organs if the family does
not consent, even if the person
signed their driver’s license, she

Cheryl Simpson, a registered
nurse at the Student Health Service
at Eastern Kentucky University,
learned that she would need an
organ transplant last year. She
received Hepatitis C from a three-
unit blood transfusion 28 years ago.

“I'm looking for a liver,” she told
attendees of the MACHA meeting.
She said that because of the great
need for donations, “you have to be

“This is definitely one of the

The increased interest could
be because the Saturday .Vlorns

and children are beginning to
be referred to the clinic by
school nurses, counselors and
teachers, Sever said.

“Many of the children here
today have never been to the
dentist. and this clinic is defi-
nitely not the ideal place for a
first time dental visit,” Sever
said. “There’s a lot of noise

could appease more than just the
masses. All the viewer gets ftom
the humor of Bean is some igno-
rant mugging about. a few off-
color iokes about bodily fluids, and
well. that's it. No important mes—
sage. no political agenda. Nothing.
The plot of Bean in a nutshell:
An idiot (that would be Bean) is
sent by his superiors in London to
help transport the painting
“\Vhistler’s Mother" to the L'nited
States without screwing everything
up. And yes, it is really (really) that
simple. 1 lard to believe, isn't it?
Let's begin with the statement
that no one has to worry about
this movie crowding anyone at the

BI‘ slapstick comedies

Academy Awards. Finally, the first
movie in the history of
the world to stack bad
acting on top of bad
direction, on top of
poor writing (that‘s not
even mentioning the
cotttplete lack of visual



the TV series “Bean”) is his hilari-
ous work on the “Black-

this one. Curtis not only wrote the
“Blackadder” series, but snatched
an Academy Award for his screen:

Quite a step down, really.

This is a weak film in all areas:

From good to had for ll

Iy Jay 8. Tate
Sport: Editor

For the first five ints of a
gily-e‘n match, the Ulfovolleyball
team is as good as any in the South—
éd‘s‘mm Conference.

.Jt’s the other 10 points keeping
Mats from success.
Take for instance Friday night’s
m tch againsr No. 4 Florida. Big

ue, having upped its intensity
since a midnight workout Wednes-
day morning, made every game
l60k winnable during the early
stages. But the late stages projected
a much different story.

Though down only 5-7 in the
first game, UK lost it, 7-15.

T ough down only 4-6 in the
second game, UK lost it, 5-15.

Though up in the third game 4-


2, UKlost it, 6-15.

“At least we play well u to five
points in every game,” head
coach Fran Flory said Frida . “But
tonight we showed a lack o desire
and determination to finish the
game. I think we played according
to the score instead of just playing
to execute in every game.”

And playing to execute is all
about Florida. The Gator offense,
run by fifth-year senior Nikki
Shade, posted a powerful .352 bit-
tin efficiency against the yielding
Wi dcats. Front-line nasties Nina
Foster and Jenni Keene combined
to blast through UK’s blockers for
20 kills on only 28 attem ts.

More importantly, I e Gators
thoroughly shut down the Cats’
offensive stalwarts. Powerful out-
side hitter LaTanya Webb finished
the match hitting —.136. Ball-con-
trol outside hitter Katie Eiserman
finished hitting -.158.

Nothing was getting through
the Florida block.

“You can’t win a match with
your two best hitters hitting like
that,” Flory said. “It was a very
poor effort on their part — our set-
ting was good enough for them to
hit at least .100.”

But the Gators’ 11 blocks sent
even the Cats’ good swings right
back into their face.

“We concentrated on our block-
ing,” Florida head coach Mary

Wise said. “After looking at her
Louisville stats (a match in which
Webb posted 36 kills), we knew
that Webb is a player that can real—
ly go off. What we tried to do was
not give her easy swings and easy

Against South Carolina yester-
day, the same trends continued to

After a strong first~game win,
the Cats came our hot in the sec-
ond game, jumping to a 7-4 lead.
But a flurry of miscues, including a
string of Gamecock ti 5 which
landed in the middle of the UK
defense, eventually led to a Big
Blue collapse and another “L”, 3—1.

“The tips absolutely killed us
and we refused to adjust,” Flory
said. “That was (USC) adjusting to
something that our defense was
givin them."

T ough the net effect was near-
ly the same, yesterday’s match was
a totally different enterprise in two
important ways:

1.) UK’s outside hitter tandem

-of Eiserman and Webb awoke

against the Gamecocks. Eiserman
finished with 14 kills and a team—
high 12 digs, while \Vebb ripped
27 kills and hit .436 for the game.

“This is the best I’ve played in
the SEC all year," Webb said. “I
was feeling really good.”

2.) UK’s front—line blocking,
which struggled against Florida’s

powerful hitters, took control of
the shorter USC attack, notching
nine total blocks.Jacl n Homan led
the assault with five locks includ-
ing three solo blocks.

“W'e really went after them
today,” Homan said.

But whatever improvements the
Cats enjoyed against South Caroli-
na were nullified by another round
of what is uickly becoming UK’s
creed: “ y Are we Inconsis-

Throu h the match, Big Blue's
hitting ef iciency continued to fol—
low a downward spiral ~— from .318
to .283 to .262 to a woeful final-
game efficiency of .091. But one of
the problems which was to be
remedied by Wednesday’s mid-
night practice was the team‘s lack
of consistent effort.

And consistency was nowhere to
be found against U SC.

“\Ve knew we weren't goin to
solve (the inconsistency),” F ory
said. “One practice doesn’t turn a
team around. There‘s not a one-
practice solution. If l did that, I
could write a book and I wouldn't
be coaching — I’d be a millionaire
and sitting on a beach somewhere."

“For the first two games, I
thought we were pretty consistent,”
Homan said. “But after that, it
went back into the roller coaster
effect — we’re high one moment
and low one moment.”

UK women
: fall despite


By Bob Herbs!
Sports Editor

seems every time the UK women’s
s0ccer team meets Vanderbilt,
sOmething memorable happens.

j When the foes met three weeks
a , the Cats received two red cards.

e year ago in the NCAA Touma-
ment, No. 23 Vanderbilt defeated
UK in sudden-death overtime.

‘ Friday in the semifinals of the
Southeastern Conference Tour-
nament at Percy Beard Stadium, it
seemed like a pretty boring game
—'— until the 75th minute.

. Down by two goals, the Wild-
cats made a furious rally with scores
in the 75th and 77th minute to tie
the game. But a goal by Vanderbilt
with less than four minutes remain-
ing gave the Commodores a 3-2
win and sent the Wildcats home,
but not with their heads down.

' “We just fought together as a
team,” said three—time All SEC
forward Kim LaBelle who played
in her final game as a Wildcat.
“This was the first game we came
together as a team. It’s taken all
season for us to come down here
and lay that good.”

' anderbilt took a quick lead in

the first half b taking advantage
of a penalty kick that resulted
when UK defender Margo Hafer
took a down a Commodore inside
the goalbox.

Me an Wender penalty’s kick
was b asted into the upper left
corner to give Vandy the lead.

“It was questionable,” said UK
head coach Warren Lipka about the
official’s call. “Margo slid and toe-
poked the ball out of bounds and
number six (Vandy’ Asthildur Hel-
gadottir) falls down and they call it.”

Eleven minutes later Helgadot-
tir’s six-yard header off a Kris
Braunston cross ass gave Vandy a
two-goal lead. he ‘Dores took
the lead to the half when Lipka
did some questioning of his team.

“I basicall asked them what
type of people they were during
halftime,” Lipka said. “Are you
people that will stand up to a fight
or walk away? They s .owed me
they were people that would stand
up to a fi ht.”

The Wildcats couldn’t get past
the Vandy
