taking an acting class his senior
year. It turned out to be more than
"saying Arthur Miller lines to each
other," so he took another course
the next semester and began stand-
up comedy. Turning down pro-
gramming job offers, he moved to
Chicago to try his hand at impro-
visational comedy with the Second
City, the famous theater company.
Costolo offered the picture-
perfect version of how life in
Chicago could have panned out,
then explained the reality.
"In the real-world story of what
happened, I decided to make a big
bet on myself and take the chance
to do this because it's what I love,"
Costolo said. "I was grinding away
for a long time and had no money,
and we would rehearse during
the day and perform these little
theaters at night for free and I was
taking classes during the day at
Second City, as well, trying to learn
improvisation and eventually had
to get out because I had no money.

To end his often humorous
remarks, Costolo invoked myriad
careers University graduates
would pursue and had advice no
matter where they end up: "Be
right there, and nowhere else, in
that moment. Soak it all it. And
remember to say thank you."

LSA graduate Anisha Chadha
was the only student speaker on
Saturday. Though she came to
the University concerned about
how she would feel among some
25,000 undergraduates, Chadha
said joining student organizations
allowed her to create a small,
unique community on campus.
"I realized, no matter what
we were doing, it was almost
impossible for me to feel small,"
Chadha said in her address. "Even
when I was in this Big House, with
114,803 other people, I began to
realize that what I was feeling
was not smallness, but rather I
was feeling like I was a part of
somethingbigger than myself."
Though most use the term
"Michigan Difference" to describe
the academic and cultural caliber of
the University, Chadha explained it
as the impact Michigan graduates
can have on humanity.
"It is the difference we were
given the opportunity to make,"
Chadha said. "It is the knowledge,
the empathy and the skills we
have gained here that are needed
to be able to make a thoughtful
difference in the lives of others."
As she concluded her speech,
Chadha reminded her fellow
graduates that they represent
the University and the power
of its graduates in their future
"Always remember: you are
contributing to our class's 'Michi-
gan Difference' and the differ-

Brown said she believes there
has been an increase in reports
of suspicious behavior due to the

may have been less reported

than a sudden trend of suspicious

lies within the increase of people
In a recent incident, a man -
described as white, in his 60s,
5'5" to 57" and with white hair -
approached pedestrians on State

While the University Police were

Brown added that upon receiv-
ing a report, University Police offi-

find a potential suspect. In most
cases no actual crime incidents
may have occurred and these
acts of suspicious behavior do not
warrant an ongoing investigation
from the University Police.

In a School of Dentistry lab
on North University Avenue,
researchers have discovered
what could eventually change
the way doctors treat cancer.
In a study published Tuesday
in the online journal Nature
Prof. Russell Taichman and
Research Associate Younghun
Jung have deciphered the
molecular messages that cause
certain cancers to spread.
Taichman's lab studies how
cancer spreads to bone marrow
as well as ways in which stem
cells can be used to regenerate
bone. The research is significant
in the School of Dentistry
because bone regeneration
is often crucial in dental
Jung, who is involved in
research in both areas, decided to
join the two sets of experiments

The ban has remained a con-
troversial issue since its incep-
tion, hailed by some opponents as
an infringement on personal free-

recruit healing cells, or very
small embryonic-like stem cells.
While studying the effect of
VSEL stem cells in rehabilitating
human bones inserted in mice,
Jung decided to include a tumor
in the experiment to see how the
VSEL cells would interact. In
the initial trial, Jung found the
tumor contained a huge amount
of the healing cells.
"I was ecstatic to find that
they do, in fact, interact with
each other," Jung wrote in an
e-mail interview. "As a scientist,
I get excited just by coming up
with new ideas and theories to
test. But when the data seems to
support these ideas, it is really
After almost three years of
research, Taichman and Jung have
been able to discover what draws
the healing cells to a tumor. While
a collaborator at the University of
Louisville first identified VSEL
cells, Taichman and Jungwere the
first to study them in tumors and
pinpoint the role the cells play in
the spread of cancer.
When a tumor develops,
the tumor produces a protein
that draws the VSEL stem cells
inside. Then, the VSEL cells turn
into a second type of cell known
as cancer associated fibroblasts.
Those cells produce a protein
that makes cancer cells more
aggressive, allowing them to
spread to other parts of the body.
an increase in littering. That said,
there are some designated ash-
trays around campus.
Another issue commonly
reported is uncertainty about the
boundaries of the ban. Though
Winfield said the ban has been
largely successful, there have
been a handful of people who take
advantage of the relatively lax
Rather than turn to law
enforcement, Winfield would pre-
fer to solve the issue more amica-
"Some are angry about the
rules, defiant, not aware or don't
care and are taking advantage of
the fact that we're using light-
weight enforcement," he said.
"My first preference is to improve
signage and advertising."
By understanding the ways
in which stem cells interact
with a tumor and cause cancer
to spread, researchers can now
study methods through which to
block VSEL cells from interact-
ing with a tumor. Additionally,
high VSEL cell levels in a blood
test could potentially serve as a
diagnostic meter for detecting
Taichman said it is possible
that further research in block-
ing VSELs could potentially cre-
ate a cure for cancer. Currently,
Taichman's lab is attempting to
find inhibitors to block the cells
as he applies for further fund-
ing to continue the research
and approval for human trials.
Jung said the next steps involve
investigating the healing cells'
interaction throughout the pro-
gression of a cancerous tumor.
However, Taichman said
many scientists still debate the
existence of VSEL stem cells
due to their small size and the
difficulties associated with
Taichman said reviewers
may also question whether
the findings will remain true
in other types of cancers.
Cancerous prostate tumors are
typically used in Taichman's
lab because they often spread
to other parts of the body, such
as bones. The lab has also tested
breast cancer tumors.

environment project coordinator
for Michigan Healthy Commu-

smoking is still an issue on Cen-

approaches such as adding sig-
