Physicists teleport information

MR. SOUTH QUAD

Quantum physicists at the Uni-
versity of Maryland successfully
teleported information between
two ions, The Diamondback report-
ed. The results of six University
of Maryland physicists' study was
published in Science magazine last
month. The feat was achieved last
September.
Researcher Steven Olmschenk
said the long gap between success and
publication was caused by the amount
of proof required forcsuch a big claim.
"We couldn't do it just once,"
Olmschenk said. "To prove we
really did it, we had to do it a few
thousand times."
The team achieved successful
teleportation 1,285 times in more
than 250 consecutive hours of lab
time.
The physicists' success opens
doors to new computing technolo-
gies. Scientists are interested inusing
charged atoms ratherthan electronic
circuits to build computers.

UNIVERSITY PLAGIARIZES
DEFINITION OF PLAGIARISM
After suffering through several
plagiarism scandals, Southern Illi-
nois University released a 17-page
report on dealing with the issue. In
the report is a definition of plagia-
rism, explaining what constitutes
plagiarism, The Chronicle of High-
er Education reported.
But that definition appears to
be plagiarized. The 139-word defi-
nition used in the report is nearly
identical'to the definition adopted
by Indiana University in 2005.
Whole passages of the 139-word
definition match verbatim. Some pas-
sages areverysimilar, buthaveslightly
different wording. For instance, Indi-
ana University's policy says: "What is
considered 'common knowledge' may
differ from course to course." South-
ern Illinois's report changes the end
of the sentence to "subject to subject."
The chairman of the committee

that put the report together, Arthur
M."Lain" Adkins, said he didn't know
of Indiana University's definition.
FIRST-YEAR STUDENT
RETENTION RATES DROP
The overall percentage of college
freshmen who return to the same col-
lege for their second year of higher
education has declined - again -
according to the results of an annual
survey released last week, The Chron-
icle of Higher Education reported.
In the lowest overall retention
rate since 1989, the study found that
66 percent of first-year college stu-
dents returned to the same school
for their second year last year.
In the 2007-2008 academic year,
about 68 percent of first year stu-
dents returned,the study, conducted
by ACT Inc., a nonprofit testing-and-
research group, found.
