Mario Mateo is a professor of
astronomy specializing in instru-
mentation and the spectroscopy
of stellar bodies in the universe.
He received his BA at Rice Univer-
sity and Ph.D at the University of
Washington. He completed Carn-
egie and Hubble fellowships at
Carnegie Observatories and has
worked at the University for 21
years.
What classes do you teach?
In the past couple of years I've
mostly been teaching an intro-
ductory astrophysics course
called "Aliens in the Sky," and also
in the last year I've been teaching
an advanced introductory course

for our potential majors. Also,
this semester I've been teaching
an introductory class on galaxies.
What kind of research
do you do?
My research is primarily in
observational astronomy. I do
work using spectrographs at the
Magellan telescope in the South-
ern Hemisphere, which is partly
operated by the University in
consortium with other universi-
ties. I've done two things that are
relevant to that in the past few
years. One, I've just actually fin-
ished building an instrument for
that telescope and in the past six
months we've began to use that

instrument effectively. A lot of
my research is devoted to looking
at fairly nearby galaxies that you
can actually see the individual
stars there and from that try to
study how the stars are moving
within their gravitational field.
Which one of your projects
or research are you
most proud of?
The main thing is the stuff that
we did with our earlier version of
this instrument, where we were
actually able to determine details
about how the mass is distributed
within these galaxies.

Student org. announces
theme for fall conference

Michigan Sports
Business Conference
to examine role of
game changers'
By EMILIE PLESSET
Daily StaffReporter
The Michigan Sport Business
Conference unveiled the theme
for their third annual event as
"Game Changers: Innovating
Today. Defining Tomorrow."
The conferennce will be Oct. 24,
though a has yet to be
finalized.
Founded in 2011 by Univer-
sity alumni Brandon Rhodes and
Dustin Cairo, MSBC aspires to
inspire future sports business
professionals and provide stu-
dents access to industry leaders
on campus.
Kinesiology junior David
Herman, MSBC co-president,
H-o

said MSBC is the only student-
run undergraduate conference.
While other professional busi-
ness events may be expensive to
attend, MSBC aims to provide
students with networking oppor-
tunities at alower cost.
"Our model is to bring that
same caliber of eager quality and
networking opportunity into a
student university environment
for a very affordable cost to our
students," Herman said.
Herman said that while the
themes of previous conferences
have focused on how the sports
industry has changed in the
past, this year the conference
will focus on how the industry
will innovate and progress in the
future.
"There are a lot of cool things
going on in the background of
sports that a lot of people don't
know about," said Kinesiology
junior Josh Kadden, MSBC brand
and website director. "We want
to focus this year on what the
5-.

next 10 years are going to be in
sports and how the game changer
are changing tomorrow."
The conference will host
about 500 people, including 30
to 40 speakers, sponsors, alum-
ni, industry professionals and
almost 400 students from the
University and other schools
throughout the country.
"We want to spread the great
work we're doing and give stu-
dents who are interested in the
industry opportunity," Herman
said.
MSBC will announce its
speakers for the upcoming con-
ference in the fall. Past speakers
have included ESPN President
John Skipper, Monday Night
Football announcer Mike Tirico
and real estate mogul Stephen
M. Ross, a donor to the Univer-
sity and owner of the Miami Dol-
phins, among others.
Herman said that this year's
speakers will reflect the confer-
ence's theme of innovation and
leadership.
"This year we really want to
try and find those people, those
companies, individuals, teams
who are looking for what the
next decade will bring in sports
business," Herman said. "We are
really looking for people who are
creating new things today and
are trying to change things up or
do something new."
The MSBC planning team is
looking into different ways of
speaker presentation to further
engage students and increase
networking opportunities. In the
past the conference was set up in
apanel format, butthisyearthere
may be more of a debate format.

In another effort to make
education more accessible, Vice
President Joe Biden announced
that the Education and Labor
departments will runa program
to facilitate community col-
lege students getting academic
credit for apprenticeships in
business and industry, in line
with the federal job-training
revamp that Biden has been
charged with leading. Colleges
will agree to provide credit for
apprenticeships that are certi-
fied by an independent group,
enabling students to finish their
degrees quicker.
Obama also planned to take
action Tuesday to use the fed-
eral government's vast array of
contractors to impose rules on
wages, pay disparities and hir-
ing on a segment of the private
sector that gets taxpayer money
and falls under his control. He
was scheduled to issue an order
prohibiting federal contractors
from retaliating against work-
ers who discuss their pay and
direct the Labor Department to
issue new rules requiring fed-
eral contractors to provide com-
pensation data that includes a
breakdown by race and gender.
