INIVAL IN CRISLER

Michigan State University police
have identified an infamous panty-
thief on MSU's campus, according
to an April 14 article in The State
News.
The suspect, a 19-year-old male
student, was caught in the act while
attemptingto steal underwear from
an MSU residence hall laundry
room on April 7, according to the
article.
A witness said he saw the suspect
placing women's thong underwear
into his laundry basket, according
to the article. Upon investigation,
the suspect was reportedly found
with 79 pairs of women's thong
underwear valued at more than
$200.
"I think (the theft) is really
weird, because you don't know
what that person is capable of or
what they're thinking," Advertis-
ing junior Sunni Schoenberg told
The State News.

LSU PROFESSOR DISMISSED
FOR TOUGH GRADING POLICY
A biology professor at Louisiana
State University was removed by
school officials for being too hard on
students, accordingto an April 15 arti-
cle published on insidehighered.com.
The professor, who teaches an
entry-level biology course, does not
use curves for her tests and, among
other methods, gives students 10
possible answers on multiple choice
questions, as opposed to the expect-
ed four, accordingto the article.
According to a statement released
by Kevin Carmen, dean of the Col-
lege of Basic Sciences at LSU, more
than 90 percent of students in the
class were either failing the class or
had dropped it by the midterm.
"The extreme nature of the grad-
ing raised a concern," Carmen said
in the statement, which was pub-
lished in the article. "We felt it was

important to take some action to
ensure that our students receive a
rigorous but fair education."
TEXAS STUDENT SETS
MULTITASKING RECORD
A student at the University of
Texas at Austin has set a new multi-
taskingrecord, accordingto an April
12 article in The Daily Texan.
Lauren Moore, a liberal arts hon-
ors and philosophy freshman, was
able to recite successfully the first
100 digits of pi, while simultaneously
balancing 15 books on her head and
solving a Rubik's cube, according to
the article.
Moore can balance 21 books on her
head without doing the other tricks
and can also solve a Rubik's cube in
40 seconds, according to the article.
Moore performed the trick on "The
Ellen DeGeneres Show" lastFriday

PRAHALAD
From Page 1A
done (with his class)," Dolan said.
"You were going to have higher
aspirations and more confidence
in yourself."
Prahalad was born in the Tamil
Nadu province in southern India.
His father was a well-known
scholar and judge in Chennai,
India. Prahalad earned a Bach-
elor of Science degree in physics
at Loyola College and the Uni-
versity of Madras and received
a postgraduate degree in busi-
ness administration at the Indian
Institute of Management. While

in school, Prahalad worked as a
manager of a Union Carbide Co.
battery plant.
During his time at the Indian
Institute of Management, Pra-
halad met his wife Gayatri, and the
couple later had two children.
In 1975 Prahalad graduated
from the Harvard Business School
with a Doctor of Business Manage-
ment and wrote his doctoral thesis
on multinational management.
According to Business Week,
Prahalad's thesis was one of the
first studies to claim corporations
needed to restructure so that they
could employ global strategies
while addressing local concerns.
After graduating from Har-

vard, Prahalad went back to India
to teach at the Indian Institute of
Management for two years before
joining the faculty at the Business
School here at the University of
Michigan in 1977.
In 1990, Prahalad and colleague
Gary Hamel published "The Core
Competence of Corporate Strat-
egy" in The Harvard Business
Review, which explained the idea
of "core competency," - a concept
businesses now identify as a cru-
cial factor in how they and their
employees work.
Among Prahalad's many pub-
lications, he had several interna-
tional bestselling books, including
"Competing for the Future," "The

Future of Competition" and "The
Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyra-
mid: Eradicating Poverty through
Profits."
Dolan spoke highly of "Fortune
at the Bottom" and said the book
has had a profound impact in the
business world.
"('Fortune at the Bottom') ... is
one of the most influential man-
agement books ever written," he
said.
The book offered new models
for providing goods and services
to people in third world countries.
In the book, Prahalad claimed
people at the "bottom of the pyra-
mid," who were often dismissed
as outsiders of the international

economy, were actually the future
of the global market.
"If we stop thinking of the poor
as victims or as a burden and start
recognizing them as resilient and
creative entrepreneurs and value-
conscious consumers, a whole new
world of opportunity will open
up," he wrote.
According to Dolan, Prahalad
wanted to involve students in his
research for "Fortune at the Bot-
tom," so he conducted 10 field-
based projects through which
students could "document phe-
nomena throughout the world."
A 2006 article in Business Week
said the book "turned Prahalad
into a celebrity in the field of inter-

national development."
Throughout his career, Pra-
halad received a number of honors
and awards. In 2009, he received
the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman -
an award given by the president
of India to men and women who
make exceptional and praisewor-
thy contributions in their respec-
tive fields. In the same year, the
Indian government honored Pra-
halad with the Padma Bushan
the third highest civilian award
in India - for his distinguished
service to the nation. The Times
of the United Kindom also named
Prahalad the most influential busi-
ness thinker on its The Thinkers
50 List in October 2009.
