Former Sec. of
State talks impact

By HALEY GLATTHORN
Daily StaffReporter
In a speech with themes
paralleling her foreign affairs
work as Secretary of State, Con-

doleezza Rice spoke about an
array of nations, from those in
the Middle East to China dur-
ing her lecture on campus yes-
terday.
Rice gave the annual Col-
lege of Engineering Goff Smith
Lecture titled "The Interface
of Energy and Geopolitics,"
discussing topics centered on
the economic and political
implications of the oil indus-
try. Addressing a crowd of sev-
eral hundred people yesterday

afternoon in Rackham Audi-
torium, Rice spoke primarily
about countries that play major
roles in the international oil
market and how they impact
the United States.
Rice served as Secretary of
State under former President
George W. Bush until 2009 and
now works as a professor of
political science and political
economy at Stanford University.
Rice said during her tenure
as Secretary of State, oil prices

began accelerating and at one
point reached a high of $140
per barrel. While this directly
affected gas price and indirect-
ly impacted the availability of
goods in the United States, they
also had a negative effect on
foreign policy, Rice said.
"During that period of time
I said to my colleagues that I
had never seen anything warp
diplomacy like high oil prices,"
she said.

Genetics and sleep

While the brain remains a

schizophrenia, bipolar disor-

This all changed in 1993, when

book that would alter children's
