Among the challenges that
the car's engineers faced was
accounting for a sweeping set of
regulations recently set forth by the
competition. This year, competing
cars have been required to add a
fourth wheel, place the driver in an
upright position and incorporate a
greater field of vision.
"Those were sort of the three big
challenges thrown at us," Goldstein
said. "From there we just tried a
whole bunch of different concepts
and we believe that the one we have
now is sort of the best concept for
tackling those challenges."
In terms, of speed and efficiency,
spectators will likely not notice
much of a difference from last year's
Quantum model, with the updates
instead focused on incorporating
these new regulations.
"Having that fourth wheel is a
big big difference," Goldstein said.
"It would normally make it slower...
(but) we believe this concept is going
to compensate for those changes as
best as possible."
Despite the extra challenges,
Goldstein said the crew feels
extremely confident going into
the race. The University's Solar
Car Team has won the past seven
national championships as well as
achieving five top three finishes
There are mixed feelings among
creators and investors about the
future implications of the solar
car. While the technology is being
embraced by both software and
automotive companies - GM
among them - the vehicle for

Goldstein said the team's main
focus remains on creating a highly
efficient and innovative vehicle that
willbeinternationally competitive in
the world of science and engineering
as opposed to turning those ideas
into everyday technology.
However both Taylor and
Lauckner expressed excitement over
the way the innovation that is being
explored can become applicable.
"We're now trying to help
companies around the world try to
solve really complicated technical
challenges around the topic of
mobility," Taylor said. "What the U
of M team here is doing fits right in to
that. We're really looking forward to
see ... what we can learn from them
in their use of the technology that
will help us help our customers."
Speaking on behalf of the team
at the unveiling, LSA senior Bryan
Mazor emphasized the crew's
confidence in both their hard work
and their technological innovation
seen in the finished result.
"Like any competitive team
we represent something more,"
Mazor said. "We're going to wear
the block M on our chest, we're
going to have our sponsors on our
car, we're going to be competing
(against) the best teams of the
world, representing Michigan."

LSA senior SebastianBlake Swae-
Shampine, legislative action director
for the University's chapter of SSDP,
said current drug enforcement was
a poor use of resources that could
be used for more serious crimes
- citing a statistic published by
the National Organization for the
Reform of Marijuana Laws, which
states that of the $7.5 to $10 billion
spent on marijuana cases, about 90
percent were for possession only.
Swae said heightened drug
enforcement has led to some

dean for medical student
education, said the changes were
being made in order to keep the
"The overarching goal
here is we want to change the
architecture and the content of
our program in order to be able to
compete," Mangrulkar said.
The first component of the
new curriculum will establish
a "consolidated foundation," he
said. In most medical schools,
students complete two years of
coursework followed by two years
in a clinical setting. In contrast,
the University plans to condense
the two years of coursework and
the first year of clinical studies
into a two-year period.
The new curriculum will also
feature professional development.
Students will be able to choose
from four branches that will
help them develop the advanced
clinical and scientific skills
needed in the medical profession.
"It will be rigorous but flexible,"
Mangrulkar said. "(Students) will
be able to monitor their pace of
development based on specific
assessments and the achievement
The Medical School will also
introduce a "leadership and
change management" component
"egregious" laws, includingthe state
of Michigan's Asset Forfeiture law,
which has allowed enforcement
officials to seize possessions such as
cash and vehicles fromdrug holders.
"You don't need to actually be
arrested or charged with a crime
or tried in order to have your assets
be seized," he said. "All you need to
do is have that one law enforcement
encounter that goes awry."
Swae said he seesthe conversation
on drugs as "sobering" because
more people have realized that
current drug laws are problematic.
He believed marijuana could easily
become a legalized substance - like
alcohol and tobacco - which could
then be regulated and taxed.
into its curriculum that would help
students garner skills required for
leading healthcare teams.
Mangrulkar said "health
equality," "bioethics" and
"quality and safety" were possible
examples of this component.
Students would then choose to
focus on one "path of excellence."
Perhaps the largest change
to the University's Medical
School curriculum is M-Home,
a longitudinal, clinical and
educational learning community
assigned to students in their first
year and until the end of their
training. By connecting students,
Mangrulkar said a team of faculty,
instructors and advisors would
help student development.
"Imagine drawing basic
sciences and clinical sciences
from the foundation into all group
settings for discussion," he said.
"(Imagine) drawing reflections
about their leadership and
change management experiences
with each other in a small group
The actual shift to the new
curriculum will start in August
2015, but there is noset date when
the University is going to "flip the
switch" on the new program.
"I think it's absolutely
transformative what we're doing
here," Mangrulkar said. "When
you compare us to the other
schools that were funded ... I
think ours is probably proposing
