By Kelsey Hadrtow OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Supporters of Team Vision and Team U filled the old ballroom on Tuesday to hear the two teams running for student body elections debate the issues and convince the few undecided in the room that they were the best team to vote for. Each team member introduced themselves and the reasons they were running for each position, noting that how much each of them love UVSC and how their goal was to make the school the best it could be. Students and media were allowed to ask questions and each team was given 30 seconds to answer.. For all those that missed the debate, here are some of the questions that were asked and each team's response: What are your feelings about the recent tuition hikes and what control do you have over tuition hikes? TEAM VISION: Our position on tuition hikes: We had a 12-percent increase in tuition last year, and this year we are looking at a 20-percent increase 32 percent over two years (we feel) is a lot. It is really hurting our students right now, especially our out-of-state students and international students. We feel that students have a lot of say in what goes on with tuition issues, or we wouldn't go to rallies up at the state capitol, work with the president's council, or work with the Board of Regents. We advocate no raise in tuition for next year. TEAM U: We also feel tuition increase is a huge issue here. There have been increases in the past and there is a large increase this year. Ptotot ky Andrew GreenKETXNEWJ The problem we face is UVSC is growing towards university status. We feel that it is important and that we can give students a good university education for an affordable price. What we don't want to have is the Board of Regents keep hiking up our tuition, and we would like to keep it capped where it is right now. What are your feelings about HB331 that would prohibit out-of-state students from receiving in-state tuition until after they have met the domicile laws and have achieved 60 hours of credit? TEAM U: I am personally from out-of-state (I am from Illinois). My first year I paid out-, of-state tuition, my second year I paid in-state "Election" continued on page 3 Disney internship: more than free rides By Jose Arzola OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF M..I..C..K..E..Y...M..O..U..S..E. Everyone knows the song, but few have the opportunity to live with the Mouse and learn under him. The Walt Disney World Resort recruiters are visiting Utah Valley State College on March 20 in the Center Stage Ballroom at 3 p.m. The recruiters will be looking for motivated college students willing to embark on aone-of-a-kind internship, known as the Walt Disney World College Program, with the Fortune 100 company. Disney's internship will focus on three main themes: living, learning, and earning. The interns will experience these themes by living at the resort, attending classes, and working at several positions within the resort. Interns will be staying in fully furnished one-, two-, three-, orfour-bedroom apartments located near the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The apartments have several facilities suqh as swimming pools, clubhouses, fitness facilities, and laundry facilities. When asked about what the t : .. COURTESY PHOTO housing was like, Jaclyn Price, a former intern at the Walt Disney World Resort, responded with "It wasn't as bad as it sounds. The apartments are really big." Jaclyn got to live with five others in her apartment and added that part of the internship is "learning to work and live with a different bunch of people in different situations." Rent for the interns will be automatically deducted from the money they make at their job positions within the resort. During their internship, the students are also required to take classes from the Fortune 100 company, which are worth three credits apiece here at , UVSC. These classes contain the same type of insight gained by top corporations who send employees to training seminars on the Disney corporate philosophy.Some of the classes offered include courses in Communications, Experiential Learning, Hospitality "Disney" continued on page 4 Net Spot 'THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewxPolrtics www.drudgereport.com CRISB Interview with Mikhail Gorbachev Mikhail Gorbachev: Even as we're witnessing a new euphoria from the victory over ihe Taliban, we have to state firmly that resorting to bombing of entire countries and peoples each time we bank with terrorism is absolutely unacceptable.

New studies cast doubt on stem cells By Alex Dominguez AP Writer Two new studies cast doubt on the tantalizing theory that adult stem cells can serve as the body's all-around repairmen, capable of converting into any type of cell to fight disease or replace faulty organs. The findings, if confirmed, could force scientists to focus more on embryonic stem cells whose use is highly controversial because they are taken from embryos that are killed in the process. The studies could also influence the debate in Washington, where the Senate is expected to take up the issue in the next few weeks of whether to ban the use of cloning to create human embryos for medical research. Scientists have long known that stem cells from embryos are all-purpose cells that can transform themselves into different kinds of specialized tissue, such as muscle, bone, skin and organs. Researchers hope someday to harness this ability to treat various diseases and injuries. In recent years, scientists have found surprising evidence that stem cells taken from adult creatures have some of the same transforming properties, or plasticity. But the two new studies, conducted in separate laboratories in the United States and England and published online Wednesday by the journal Nature, cast doubt on that belief. In the two studies, embryonic stem cells from mice were put in laboratory dishes with mouse bone marrow and brain cells. But instead of transforming into their neighboring cells, the stem cells simply merged their genetic material with the marrow and brain cells. The researchers said the same phenomenon may have occurred in studies involving adult stem cells, and may have fooled scientists into thinking that the cells had transformed themselves. , The new findings "call into question almost all of the data generated using adult stem cells," said Robert Lanza, medical director of Advanced Cell Technology, a Worcester, Mass., company not involved in the two studies.
