Pest for a pet

The story goes,"If you give a mouse
a cookie, he's going to ask for aglass of
milk." In the case of LSAsenior Clara
Jones, if you give a student a mouse,
she's going to treat it like her own it.
For a while, Jones and her room-
mates had been talking about getting
a pet.
"We had been throwing around
some bigger animals that you obvi-
ously can't have in an apartment, like
a fox," she said. "But that was a joke."
Then, the unexpected happened.
One of Jones' roommates, a graduate
student studying environmental engi-

neering, recovered an orphaned wild
mouse over the weekend while on a
local trip, and was given the option to
keep it.
"She texted a picture of a tiny little
baby mouse, and said, 'Do you guys
want a mouse?' I responded in all
caps, 'YES,"' Jones said.
Jones raised mice as pets when she
was younger, but this situation was
different. The mouse wasn't store-
bought; he was recovered in a very
weak and fragile state.
The next step was to do some
research, Jones said, after which the

roommates were able to estimate that
the mouse was seven to 10 days old.
As a result, Jones and compa-
ny have had to make some special
"Baby mice need mom's milk,
which we obviously don't have, so we
have kitten formula that we dilute,"
Jones said. "We have to - feed him
every two hours. So we've been divid-
ingup the nights between us."
"Theyalso don't know how to poop
on their own," she added. "We have to
rub its butt until it poops, which is a
less pleasant part of having him. But

you gotta do that."
As far as housing for the little guy,
the newly named Pickles is currently
situated in a blue, 10-inch by 10-inch
plastic box.
"He just curls up within crumpled
tissues," Jones said. "He sleeps. His
eyes aren't even open yet."
The box lies on top of what was for-
merly a fish tank heater - Jones said
this kind of heat is necessary to main-
tain a suitable body temperature.

emit red and green light on
phone displays but have used
the less-efficient fluorescent
OLED for blue to extend the
display life.
In the most recent study,
however, Forrest's lab dem-
onstrated a longer-lasting
version of the blue PHOLED,
with a tenfold increase in
lifespan compared to previ-
ous models. Yifan Zhang, a
former student in the lab,
and Jae Sang Lee, a current
Ph.D. candidate, authored the
recent publication.
Lee said he was inspired
by his desire to create some-
thing very useful and effi-
cient and -to fill a gap in
PHOLED production that the
industry has been unable to
In standard OLEDs, elec-
trons are essentially passed

along the diode in a single
line. The PHOLED takes
advantage of what Forrest
called a "quantum trick,"
which allows four times more
electrons to be transferred
between molecules.
"What makes them so effi-
cient is that what sits in the
middle of each molecule is a
heavy metal atom - iridium
or platinum," Forrest said.
"That's what made the OLED
display industry possible in
many respects, because they
needed high efficiency."
However, because these
transfers excite the molecule
into a state of high energy,
they can result in collisions
that can cause a single mol-
ecule to become twice as
excited. This unstable state,
which is determined by the
energy of the electrons, has
traditionally led to a break-
down of the diode in the case
of blue light.
Forrest's group over-

came these constraints
by increasing the area
that the electrons had to
spread out over the emis-
sive layer of the diode,
thereby lowering the
probability of such colli-'
Implementation of the
blue PHOLED into con-
sumer electronics such
as smartphones, tablets
and televisions, could
take three to five years,
according to researchers.
Once implemented, the
new diodes could reduce
energy consumption, in
these devices.
Forrest said the new
PHOLEDs could easily be
incorporated into current
manufacturingtechniques, as
their structure is very similar
to that of their predecessors.
"The equipment, the pro-
cess, the time is basically
identical in what is used
today in mass-producing

al taught by lecturer John Bacon,
a prominent sports journalist
and New York Times bestselling
"There are few places that
are suited to study ways to think
about sports," Bacon said. "That's
what's great about the University:
it's a wonderful place for ideas."
Physics Prof. Dave Gerdes, co-
organizer of the theme semester

along with Curzan, said cours-
es spanning several different
departments show the breadth of
perspectives from which sports
can be analyzed - ranging from
themes within psychology, wom-
en's studies, economics and medi-
cine. A marathon runner himself,
Gerdes emphasized the relevance
of mixing academics with athlet-
"Sports and academics are two
things Michigan does very, very
well," Gerdes said. "It can give
both students and faculty a better
appreciation for what's going on

over in the athletic campus and
realize that it's not in some ways
as much of a world apart as it may
Several events sponsored by
the theme semester have already
occurred, including a kickoff
panel featuring- prominent var-
sity coaches and LSA faculty
members, and a lecture by Bacon
during Parents Weekend.
At the kickoff, Michigan bas-
ketball coach John Beilein, one
of the panelists, gave advice to
students and student athletes
alike on how to achieve success

and face defeat. He called fail-
ure a "fertilizer for growth" and
recalled his acronym, "WIN" -
what's important now. As a well-
regarded coach whose team has
had successful March Madness
performances over the last two
years, Beilein also offered advice
on how to strive to grow in spite
of success.
Beilein serves as an example of
how the Athletic Department will
contribute to the semester.Curzan
said the department will sponsor
several events, including a lec-
ture by University alum Andrea.

Overall, Curzan anticipates
the theme semester will create a
dialogue about the intersection of
sports and academics at the Uni-
"At Michigan, you find pas-
sion for academics and passion
for athletics and we don't think

that we need to see athletics and
academics as inherently or neces-
sarily at odds with each other,"
Curzan said. "And many of us
combine sport and academics in
our personal lives in complemen-
tary, productive, fun and often
inspiring ways."
