Prof. explores bones adaptability

Maureen Devlin is an assis-
tant professor of anthropology,
specializing in how bones adapt
to certain environments. She
earned her master's in anthro-
pology from George Washington
University and her Ph.D. from
Harvard University, She has been
with the Universityfor two years.
How exactly do bones adapt?
Well, for example, while
you're still growing in height,
your bones can actually grow
thicker if you're doing a lot of
exercise because they adapt to
the mechanical environment
they're in. Tennis players will
have a thicker humerus - arm

bone - on the racket side than
on the non-racket side because
they're doing extra mechanical
loading on that side.
What research projects are
you working on right now?
Right now I'm starting a new
project about how bones grow
in different temperatures. I'm
interested in whether bones
grow to be different sizes or
shapes depending on whether
you grow up in a cooler climate
or a warmer climate. That's a
project I just started, so the
results are still to come. I'm
also part of an MCubed project,
which are University collabora-

tive grants to work with people
from different departments.
We're doing experiments to
look at how exercise and caloric
restriction affect how bones
What's your favorite
class to teach?
I really love the class I'm
teaching right now, which is
called "Nutrition and Evolu-
tion." I get to talk about junk
food, the changes in eating hab-
its of the last century, trying to
look at big patterns in the West-
ern diet. It's a lot of fun. .

Independent CSG candidate Officials: Missing plane
campaigns without agendas crashed in Indian Ocean

'Divisiveness' of
student government
politics inspire
Coumarbatch's bid
Daily StaffReporter
With polls for the Central
Student Government elections
opening midnight on Tuesday,
members of the various political
parties have been campaigning
for students' votes, some choos-
ing to pursue campaign videos
or chalk advertisments along the
Diag on behalf of their political
LSA senior Aristide Coumar-
batch, who is running for CSG
president as an independent, is
forgoing the support of a party
because he feels it's achievable.
"I'm running to try to set a
good example for other people

so they won't feel like running
for president is out of their reach,
and also to show the importance
of creating equality and imple-
menting diversity," Coumarbatch
Independent candidates often
run with the knowledge that
parties give their opponents an
advantage, and instead use the
election to raise awareness or to
spread their political message.
But Coumarbatch said he has his
eyes on the presidency.
"I wouldn't run if I didn't
think I could win," he said.
Coumarbatch said that most
of his campaigning is through
the use of hashtags such as
#Aristideforpresident2014 and
#fightingforchange on social
media sites, such as Twitter and
Coumarbatch is new to CSG,
with no affiliation to any pre-
vious party or time spent as a
representative. Though Cou-
marbatch said he considered

creating his own party - espe-
cially since it would make get-
ting the word out that much
easier - he ultimately decided
to run as an independent.
"I'm not affiliated with a party
and I think that's what makes me
different," he said. "That par-
ties do have agendas and certain
things that they want to pass. But
as an independent, I'mjust trying
to take the word of the students,
to be the voice of the students."
Part of his decision was born
out of the divisiveness that can
overwhelm student government
politics. He said he could imag-
ine having a vice president of
a different ideology of his own
and representatives coming from
many different parties.
"I didn't really want it just to
be me and my party getting the
things that we wanted," he said.
"We could try to make a collec-
tive government with a lot of
different points of view instead
of just one party dominating the
entire government."
What Coumarbatch does
stress is a "fight for change" as
well as the need to "increase
"I really do think that we can
help in a lot of different ways," he
said. "As time goes on, when I'm
in a position to do that, I'll have a
better answer for that."

Investigators say all
aboard perished in
mysterious case of
Flight 370
(AP) - After 17 days of despera-
tion and doubt over the missing
Malaysia Airlines jet, the coun-
try's officials said an analysis of
satellite data points to a "heart-
breaking" conclusion: Flight 370
met its end inthe southernreach-
es of the Indian Ocean, and none
of those aboard survived.
The somber announcement
late Monday by Prime Minis-
ter Najib Razak left unresolved
many more troubling questions
about what went wrong aboard
the Boeing 777 to take it so far
It also unleashed a maelstrom
of sorrow and anger among the
families of the jet's 239 passen-
gers and crew.
A solemn Najib, clad in a black
suit, read a brief statement about
what he called an unparalleled
study of the jet's last-known sig-
nals to a satellite. That analysis
showed that the missing plane,
which took off from Kuala Lum-
pur for Beijing early on March 8,
veered "to a remote location, far

from any possible landing sites."
"It is therefore with deep
sadness and regret that I must
inform you that, according to this
new data, Flight MH370 ended in
the southern Indian Ocean," he
His carefully chosen words
did not directly address the fate
of those aboard. But in a sepa-
rate message, sent to some of
their relatives just before he
spoke, Malaysia Airlines officials
said that "we have to assume
beyond any reasonable doubt that
MH370 has been lost and that
none of those on board survived."
Officials said they concluded
that the flight had been lost in the
deep waters west of Perth, Aus-
tralia, based on more thorough
analysis of the brief signals the
plane sent every hour to a satel-
lite belongingto Inmarsat, a Brit-
ish company, even after other
communication systems on the
jetliner shut down.
The pings did not include any
location information. But Inmar-
sat and British aviation officials
used "a type of analysis never
before used in an investigation of
this sort" to zero in on the plane's
last direction, as it reached the
end of its fuel, Najib said.
In a statement, Inmarsat said
the company used "detailed anal-
ysis and modelling" of transmis-
sions from the Malaysia Airlines
jet and other known flights to
describe "the likely direction of
flight of MH370."
Najib gave no indication of
exactly where in the Indian
Ocean the plane was last heard
from, but searchers have sighted
possible debris in an area about
2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles)
southwest of Perth.
High waves, gale-force winds
and low-hanging clouds forced
the multinational search to be
suspended for 24 hours Tuesday,
the Australian Maritime Safety
Authority said in a statement.
Australian Transport Minis-
ter Warren Truss, who is respon-
sible for the search coordination,
said Tuesday in Canberra the

determination that the plane had
crashed shifts the search to a new
phase, but that it would be a dif-
ficult and long one.
"The Malaysian announce-
ment is purely based on the sat-
ellite imagery that's available,
the calculations about fuel and
capacity of the aircraft to stay in
the air, so it's really a long, long
way away before much can be
done bywayof physical examina-
tion," he said.
He said that under interna-
tional agreements governing air
travel "Malaysia needs to take
control" and decide how to pro-
Truss said the Australian naval
supply ship HMAS Success had
beeninthe areawhereobjectshad
been spotted Mondaybutits crew
had been unable to find anything.
He said he did not expect the
search for debris would be scaled
back in the short term.
"Obviously, recovery of any
kind of debris that may be related
to the aircraft will be important
for the investigative stage," he
said. "So it's still important for us
to try and find as much of the air-
craft as possible."
There is also a race against
the clock to find any trace of the
plane that could lead them to the
location of the black boxes, the
common name for the cockpit
voice and data recorders, whose
battery-powered "pinger" could
stop sending signals within
two weeks. The batteries are
designed to last at least a month
and can last longer. The plane
disappeared March 8.
Some of the relatives who
gathered to listen to Najib, met
the news with shrieks and uncon-
trolled sobs. Others collapsed
into the arms of loved ones.
"My son! My son!" cried a
woman in a group of about 50
gathered at a hotel near Beijing's
airport, before falling to her
knees. Minutes later, medical
teams carried one elderly man
out of the conference room on a
stretcher, his face covered by a
