The flood "had a lot of impact on a lot
of people who didn't ask to have their
nights disrupted in this way," Housing
spokesman Alan Levy said.
At least one student's computer was
destroyed. LSA freshman Julio Domin-
guez's roommate called him and deliv-
ered the devastating news.
A catastrophe recovery company
arrived at the scene to extract the water
and mitigate further damage.
The University will cover the expens-
es of the hotel stays. Levy said he has
to wait for the evaluation of the dam-
ages before providing an estimate of
the total costs.
The University's Risk Management
Office will file an insurance claim
for the University's property and the
personal property of residents. Usu-
ally, the University does not cover
damage to personal property, Levy
At the scene were the director of
housing, an associate director of Hous-
ing, a head staff member of Residen-
tial Education and security personnel.
The West Quad building staff was also
involved in minimizing the impact of

tion has had a "nice, quiet year," Levy

Dean of Students Susan Eklund, who
oversees assistance in emergency situ-
ations, has been notified and probably
will let professors know some students
may miss class or need extra time to
"This is obviously not a terrific time
of the year for this to happen," Levy
The new sprinkler system was
installed last summer in the dorms as
part of a $50-million investment in fire
and life safety enhancements.
This is the second incident with the
new sprinkler systems. The first inci-
dent occurred last year in South Quad,
also the result of a resident "inappropri-
ately using a football or soccer ball in
the hallway," Levy said.

According to Levin, Defense Department inter-
rogators employed questionable tactics while dis-
guised as FBI agents at the prison so their agency
would not "take the fall." After the committee
obtained partially censored e-mails through a Free-
dom of Information Act request, members learned
the FBI alerted Department of Justice officials, yet
nothing was done.
Levin said he has been actively trying to get cer-
tain names from the memo declassified, or released
through a committee subpoena, to continue the
investigation and fulfill his duty.
According to Levin, the inability to get the names
released had important implications in the confir-
mation of Homeland Security Secretary Michael
Chertoff, who was the head of the criminal division
of the Department of Justice at the time of the e-
mails and possibly knew of the FBI allegations.
"The abuse of power by this administration will
continue unless it's checked by Congress or in the
courts," Levin said. "Since the Republicans control
(Congress), there are no meaningful hearings being
held, and this hurts the government."
In November, every seat in the House and 33
Senate seats are up for election. The Democrats
would need to win six additional seats in the
Senate and 15 in the House to gain control of
"I think there's at least a 40-60 chance the
Democrats will recapture the Senate and a 30-
70 chance of capturing both," Levin said, adding
if the election were held tomorrow he would up
the odds to 50-50. He said the Republican party's
monetary advantage and its ability to buy more
advertising will eventually shift public opinion to
"The low level of support for (the Bush adminis-
tration) is not sustainable," he said.
If the Democrats were to gain a majority in the
Senate, Levin would become chairman of the Sen-
ate Armed Services Committee.
He said he would reassert the committee's over-
"There would be a series of hearings and investi-
gations immediately;"he said.

hoping that his research will earn him a
piece of the $100-million pie.
Ulsoy said he hopes to create a better
system for applying force when stamp-
ing sheet metal into different materials
and car parts.
When sheet metal is molded
into different parts, it is done using
three main components: a die, a
punch and a blank. The die and
punch stretch the sheet metal into
the required shape and the blank
applies a restraining force to control
Tears and wrinkles in the metal
sometimes occur when too much force
is applied during the stamping process.
Ulsoy said he hopes his research will
help develop a sensor that will automati-
cally adjust the force applied to the sheet
"The system will allow lighter-weight
cars through cost-effective stamping
of lighter materials such as aluminum
alloys," he said.
Submitted proposals will be reviewed
by the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, Shore said.
The association will make recommen-
dations, and then the proposals will be
assessed by the Strategic Economic
Investment and Commercialization
Board to determine what research will
be most beneficial to the economy.
The amount of money awarded will
be determined in late July.
Ulsoy said funding is always com-
petitive but it has been useful to have
state funding available along with other
federal and private grants.
