Committee to preserve environmental resources

8.! B9IEQ§W99991
news@kykernel corn

()v er the next month. LiK‘s Sustain-
ability Task Force will be revamping
into a permanent committee.

“The original task force served UK
well. but is now 'going otit of business'
to be replaced by a formal. ongoing
committee established through the of-
fice of the president." said Bob Wise»
titan. vice president of facilities man«
agement. the department coordinating
the committee.

The Sustainability Task Force be—

gan in December 2002 as a group of

faculty. staff and students interested in
the preserving resources on UK's
campUs and the surrounding environ«

Wiseman said changing the task
force to a committee will “greatly in—
crease visibility of environmental is~
sues on campus and will allow for a
more formal and ongoing structure to
be created."

The committee is responsible for
brainstorming ideas to make UK more
environmentally friendly. A sustainabil—
ity coordinator will oversee the com-
mittee's budget and put those ideas into
action. said Brittany Zwicker. co—coor—

dinator of the environmental club UK
Greenthumb and a communication dis-
orders senior.

The committee aims to hold envi—
ronmental awareness events and in—
crease student involvement in "green“
activities. such as recycling within resi-
dence halls and continuing community
outreach in programs.

Before the committee can begin
those initiatives. it must name the
members and student representatives.
advertise the sustainability coordinator
position and establish an office on cam-
pus. Wiseman said.

“I think it's a committee that will

grow and evolve over time,“ Wiseman
said. “and that‘s what it needs to do."

President Lee Todd will appoint
committee members. and students can
apply for one of the two student posi‘
tions on the committee.

“The students that get accepted will
work as a liaison to report back and
forth from Greenthumb to the sustain-
ability eommittee." Zwicker said.

Greenthumb has always worked
closely with the Sustainability Task
Force, said Scott Beckmeyer, co-coor-
dinator of Greenthumb and an engi—
neering junior.

“They are very interested in our in-

put as students, more so than any other
UK committee that I personally have
encountered." Beckmeyer said.

The committee and subcommittees
will address topics such as academics.
environmental education and literacy.
research, business operations. land use
and building construction. community
outreach. procurement. and waste man-

"We have looked forward to the
day that the Sustainability Task Force
becomes presidentially nominated so
that there is a definite link between stu-
dent~led Greenthumb and the UK ad—
ministration? Beckmeyer said.

For the next three years. many students with
agricultural classes will have to deal with con-
struction noise and a longer walk.

In March. UK fenced off the lawn between
the UK Hospital and the Agriculture Science
Center North building to begin construction on
a parking structure. The structure. part of a
$2.5-billion hospital renovation plan. is set to
open in 20] 1.

you can‘t."

ing and for students to hang out between class-

"l just don‘t think they should destroy the
green space they have out there." Jackson said.

UK‘s vice president of facilities manage-
ment Bob Wiseman said he and other UK offi-
cials have “constantly met" with College of
Agriculture officials. including the dean and as—
sociate dean. to discuss any problems resulting
from construction.

"I think you will find at any college differ-
ences of approval Wiseman said

One issue students have had since construc—
tion began is the time it takes to get to classes
in the College of Agriculture buildings.

"It‘s just hard to walk to class because of all
the construction." said Lacey Werczynski. a re-

Local artist
spirituality on
painted wood

81 Megan Buchanan


A local artist is combining vibrant
colors with pieces of cut~down wood
to portray his spirituality. and he is
putting it on display at UK.

Jeff Rial. a Nicholasville artist, de-
picts biblical pictures with ink on
pieces of wood that is then pressed at
UK‘s woodcut press. His work is on
display this week at the Bamhart Stu-
dio in the Reynolds Buiiding. The
gallery is open Monday through Fri-
day from I to 10 pm.

“This past year [ have focused on
my faith and my beliefs. and then I
draw these up and make them into
woodcuts." Rial said.

Emily Lobb. an art studio senior.
Visited the studio on Friday. and by 2
pm. she had already purchased her fa-
vorite piece. “Jesus and Peter Walking
on Water."

“Many of Rial's pieces have reli-
gious undertones." Lobb said.

Aaron Skolnick. an art studio
freshman. liked the vibrant colors Rial
used in his depiction of a lighthouse
on a hill that was ornamented with
bright pinks and blues.

"This one reminds me of Andy
Warhol." Skolnick said.

Skolnick. Lobb and other art stu-
dio students had already heard of Rial
before his art went on display. He ap-
peared as a guest lecturer a few weeks
ago where he told students about his

Rial said he believes God is in
control of everything and controls all
of life. In return. Rial said he tries to
give God his talent.

“I have tried to surrender to the
Lord. and it is a daily walk. but I
hope it is reflected in my work." Rial

Rial also enjoys painting portraits
of his friends and family using thick
oil paints.

UK professor gives flight to old beading techniques

ELKollio pate:

A UK professor is taking a “Flight
of Fantasy" to New Zealand in hopes
of winning a costume award.

Bob Haven. associate professor of
costume technology. designed a cos—
tume called "Flight of Fantasy" that
has been selected as a finalist in the
avante-garde category of the World of
WearableArt Award Show. an interna—
tional design competition in Welling-
ton. New Zealand.

The event runs from Thursday to
Sept. 30 and has a following in New
Zealand similar to the Academy
Awards in the United States. Haven

Haven's design will be featured
Sept. II. It is one of only four gar—
ments from US. designers in the
show. which includes designs from l2

Haven practiced the art of tambour
beading. an intricate beading design
technique, when creating "Flight of
Fantasy." an oniate Japanese kimono.

“I used the kimono like a giant
canvas," Haven said.

The kimono is made of three
pieces: a gown. a hcadpiece and a
Uchikake. or a full length outer robe. It
is covered with an array of colorful
tambour-beaded butterflies.

“Using the idea of the butterfly
came from the country of New
Zealand." Haven said. "Being that

(New Zealandl has such an exotic en—
vironment. this fantasy butterfly theme
seemed to fit."

Although Haven originally wanted
to cover the entire kimono in beads. he
realized it was not plausible. Instead.
he used 250.000 beads to create the

Besides creating his own art.
Haven enjoys helping students learn
the rare art of tambour beading. which
is a European technique that was pop—
ular in the l920s, he said.

“I teach the technique because I
want to reintroduce the subject."
Haven said. "If not it may disappear."

Haven learned the technique from
a Puerto Rican woman he met 15 years
ago. He had the woman come teach

the art at the University of Illinois.
where Haven taught before coming to
UK six years ago.

Haven is thrilled about his design
being chosen for such a prestigious
event. he said. but he isn‘t stopping

He has another entry idea for the
award show. and if he starts now. it
will probably be ready in time for the
20I0 competition.

“I also plan on attending the Royal
School of Needlework in England to
get certified in four traditional needle-
work techniques." Haven said. "Other
than that. 1 just want to continue to

er were just not enough. were they‘.’

(surely you have one of those'?). along with the [788

you just HAD to fill. right‘.’

And even if the answer is no. "they" 7 the omi—
nous "they" that are always thinking of new ways to
get into your wallet _ did it again. They created
something so cool that you knew you had to have it:
The high-definition DVD player. HD discs can do all
sorts of magical digital things while the movie is
playing. You can see special effects before the ef»
fects are added: watch the storyboard version in time
with the movie: hear pop—up factoids from the direc-
tor; create your own version of stunt cars. etc.. etc.
ad infinitum.

But “they" didn‘t stop there. They made two of
them based on inventor Shuji Nakamura‘s break-
through blue laser beam. Two competing formats
that don‘t play the same DVDs. which are different
from the hundreds of DVDs you already own.

The battle is on between Blu-ray Disc. or BI).
and HD DVD. Blu—ray is currently outselling HD
DVD two to one. but an announcement last month
by Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation
SKG that they won‘t support the format slowed
down the victory celebration. because Paramount

Blu- ray and HDDVD: Fightingfor the smallscreen

had previously been dining from both sides of the
high—def buffet. Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema
are still rooting for both formats. but other studios
are making one-system alliances.

To complicate matters further. this summer.
Blockbuster put its stock in Blu-ray. announcing it
would stop carrying HD DVD discs in 1.200 of its
L450 stores. Target also said it would stop carrying
HD DVD players.

So. which one should you invest in? And how
much will it cost you"? Here‘s what you need to

As editor-in-chief of Video Business magazine. a
sister publication to Variety. Marcy Magiera spends a
lot of time pondering the high—definition DVD for-
mat w ar. We thought w hichev er Magiera went with
7 Blu-ray or HD DVD . would certainly point to the

"I don‘t know which one I'd buy." she says. “I
just don‘t know."

Well. when might she know '.’ "1 don't think this
will be over for a w hilc." she says. "Not at least un—
til 2009."

But Richard (llikes. executive director of Home
Theater Specialists of America ‘ which represents
those who install components. typically for high~end
clients v told Video Business: “Personally. I think the
die has been cast. I survey ed our membership and
93.95 percent of the high definition players sold
(are) Blu-ray. Six percent are HD DVD. and a lot of
those are the LG combo unit."

“I don’t think it will be too long before Blu~ray
is pronounced the winner."

Of course. that was before the

Paramount/DreamWorks announcement.

We understand your reluctance to spend hun-
dreds of dollars on a component and thousands more
on updating your video library until a victory has
been declared. Once the loser is vanquished. their
fonnat won‘t be supported in the future. and we still
get steamed every time we walk by that Betamax
player in the basement.

If you want to hedge your bets. South Korean
electronics maker LG has the LG BHlOO High Defi-
nition Blu-ray—HD DVD Combo player. which does
what it says. It has a few limitations ~ it doesn't play
CDs: it can‘t accommodate 1080p output g and it's
about $1,000. But if you like to hunt for DVD bar-
gains and want to watch either/or high-def format.
this machine is for you.

On the other hand. if all the mule-dazzle special
features added to high-definition discs don‘t impress
you. you might consider an “upconverting” DVD
player. Upconverters use special circuitry to repeat
information on a DVD. making the image and sound
richer and more detailed. While the quality isn't
quite high—definition. it‘s vastly superior to “normal"
DVD playback.

Upconverters. such as Pioneer‘s DV-400V at
$99. sell for hundreds less than an HD player. One of
the most impressive on the market is Oppo‘s DV-
9XlHD. selling for about $230: their DV-97IHD can
be had for less than $200.

Nextgeneration gaming systems are responsible
for more high—definition DVD player sales than the
stand-alone components themselves. Xbox 360 is. in
effect. an HD DVD player: PlayStation 3 is a Blu—
ray player. But only one or the other.
