Adam Yauch lives on
through his music

Billboard 200 in
Daily Arts Writer
As soon as I read that Adam
Yauch had died, the first few
beats of "Intergalactic" started
playing in my head, accompanied
not by the usual feeling I get of
wanting to jump and dance, but
instead with disbelief, sadness:
"Intergalactic plan-et-ary
plan-et-tary intergalactic."
Rapper and Beastie Boys
founder Adam Yauch, otherwise
known as MCA, wasn't a gun-
hungry, money-loving wom-
anizer like many of those who
dominate the popular rap/hip-
hop sphere today; Yauch was for
peace, and for art, and for letting
others experience those things,
but not without quirky beats and
quality sampling.
With his death yesterday, the
music and creative generation
lost a member that served as
the constant reminder of what
music and art can achieve. Never

"hun'eds" or their ladies, Yauch,
Michael Diamond and Adam
Horovitz - who together made
up the Beastie Boys - instead
made music with an air of activ-
ism (re: "(You gotta) fight for
your right (to party)") and was
not about gettinglaid (re: "Here's
a little something for ya"). And,
always, their albums reverber-
ated their home: New York City.
They stayed true Yauch's style
on all of their albums up through
the latest "Hot Sauce Committee
Part Two," which was delayed
two years due to Yauch's battle
with cancer.
Yauch had salivary gland can-
cer for three years. He was 47
years old when he passed away
and I'm not the only one that
knows that he was too young.
Check Twitter and all the lead-
ing new sites; mourning his loss

the crowds and lives he influ-
Yauch formed the Beastie Boys

in 1981 when he was 17 years old.
And while the group stands out
most obviously because they are
three white Jewish rappers, they
proved they could rap as well
as the rest when their first full
album, License to Ill, - released
* in 1986 - was the first hip-hop
album to reach the number one
spot on the Billboard 200. Their
induction into the Rock and Roll
hall of fame last month, which
MCA could not attend because
of his sickness, proved it.
MCA was someone who
cared. Moreover, he was socially
conscious, as exhibited by the
benefit concerts he organized.
Among the slew of them was the
show in 1996 for Tibetan Free:
dom that rivaled Live Aid's and
another after September 11th
where the proceeds were given
to those affected that wouldn't
have otherwise gotten support.
He was an artist. He started
his own film production com-
pany called Oscilloscope Labo-
ratories that was most recently
responsible for Banksy's "Exit
Through the Gift Shop," among
other films. He also directed
some of the Beastie Boys' music
videos - including "Intergalac-
tic" - using the alias Nathanial
Hfrnblowr, but directed the
most recent video for "Make
Some Noise," from the Beastie
Boys' latest album, under his
own name. It stars Elijah Wood,
Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen and
Jack Black. If you haven't seen
the "Make Some Noise" video,
watch it now if for no other rea-
son than to pay homage to a leg-
Multifaceted and passionate
about his work, Yauch was rare.
I think because I respected his
work and his purpose, his death
is particularly sad. The first time
I watched a Beastie Boys video
on TRL, I laughed: They looked
like they were having too much
fun to be serious, to be a real
group. Once I discovered that
they were exactly that - real
(and had several number one
albums) - my admiration grew.
It's hard to think I won't be
able to dance to "Brass Monkey"
anymore without acknowledg-
ing that he's gone. MCA, Adam,
thanks for doing it right.

Last month, the Univer-
sity was once again the leader in
groundbreaking medical research
with a new study from the School
of Public Health that discovered
a change in Alzheimer's patients'
brain structure.
In a collaborative study that
performed a postmortem analy-
sis on subjects with and without
Alzheimer's, researchers from
nine different University depart-
ments found a change in the epig-
enome - responsible for turning
genes on and off - of Alzheimer's
Dana Dolinoy, assistant pro-
fessor in the Public Health School
and the study's co-author, spe-
cializes in epigenetics and said
that if the genome is a computer,
the epigenome would be the soft-
ware that tells it what to do.
According to Dolinoy, this
discovery is important because it
allows for research of new ways
to treat or prevent Alzheimer's
"If a disease is caused by an
epigenetic effect we may be able
to use dietary approaches or
pharmacological treatments to
counteract the negative epigen-
etic effect," Dolinoy said.
She added that this research
is important in helping identify
who will have the disease earlier
than could be done before.
According to Howard Hu,
chair of the department of envi-
ronmental sciences in the Pub-
lic Health School and principal
investigator on the study, changes
in the epigenome can be caused
by environmental factors early in
life, like exposure to toxic chemi-
Though this study did not
examine specific causes for the
change in epigenome, Hu believes
that exposure to lead could be
an important factor in trigger-
ing the change in the epigenome,
but added that this hypothesis
requires further research.

"Basically, we are now setting
the stage for doing research on
early-life risk factors for chang-
ing the epigenome in a bench-
mark area of the brain that we
have shown is associated with
Alzheimer's later in life," Hu said.
Hu added that the study will
need to be replicated in order to
ensure its validity, but he believes
it made great strides toward
understanding Alzheimer's dis-
Apart- from the epigenomic
differences found, research-
ers also discovered increased
amounts of the protein TMEM59
in subjects with Alzheimer's.
The found changes in the
epigenome lead to fewer methyl-
ated genes as well as an increase
in the TMEM59 protein, accord-
ing to Dolinoy. She explained that
methylation is a mechanism that
controls the strength of a gene
like a dimmer switch on a light, in
this case decreasing the strength
of TMEM59 in Alzheimer's
