On her eighth day of rehearsal at UC Irvine, Kitty McNamee decided to refocus her dancers on the theme of their piece. Rather than demonstrate steps or go over musical motifs, the choreographer gathered her team around and read a different set of directions - from the dictionary. The word in question was "transit," which is also the working title of McNamee's entry in UC Irvine's annual National Choreographers Initiative. With the online Oxford Dictionaries offering a slew of meanings, she rattled them off quickly: the movement of people or materials, the passage of celestial bodies and so on. FOR THE RECORD: Dance program: An article about the National Choreographers Initiative in the July 24 Calendar section described the initiative as a UC Irvine event.

Re "Why the rush on Napolitano?," Editorial, July 17, and "Regents confirm Napolitano," July 19 The Times' editorial urging the University of California's Board of Regents to take more time in evaluating Janet Napolitano for the post of UC president - advice the regents, who confirmed her selection Thursday, did not follow - rightly points to some of the problems with her selection. But there are more, suggested by her record as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Congratulations to Sadia Saifuddin, who will be the first Muslim to serve as student representative to the University of California Board of Regents. Her resume for the post is a strong one: Since arriving at Berkeley, she has worked to increase the amount of financial aid available to students, to secure funding for the UC Berkeley Food Pantry and, as head of the student Senate's finance committee, to allocate money to student groups. But there's one glitch. She is also a critic of Israel.

SAN FRANCISCO - The UC regents Thursday confirmed U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano as the next president of the 10-campus system during a meeting interrupted by protesters who contended that she should be disqualified because her agency expanded deportations of people who entered the country illegally. The regents set Napolitano's base salary at $570,000 a year, which at her request is $21,000 less than the pay for current UC President Mark G. Yudof. That avoids a political furor about executive pay inflation, but it still will be a big raise from Napolitano's annual Cabinet salary of about $200,000.

SAN FRANCISCO - On the eve of confirming Janet Napolitano as the next university president, UC regents on Wednesday faced the type of difficult financial, ethnic and political questions that await the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security at the 10-campus UC system. The regents voted to raise tuition for graduate nursing programs while freezing fees for nearly all other students, and they appointed the next student regent, despite opposition from some Jewish and pro-Israel groups angered by her past advocacy of divesting university funds from Israel.

When the summer is over, pitcher Matt Campbell of Simi Valley has a chance to be one of the success stories. He was an all-league player for the Pioneers as a junior, going 6-3 with an 1.86 ERA. But during the summer, he has helped his college recruiting chances immensely. He was his team's MVP in the North-South Series and he's trying to make the Area Code Games roster for the Brewers. He's a 6-foot-5 right-hander still learning to throw strikes but getting better. UC Santa Barbara and Santa Clara have been recruiting him hardest, but Long Beach State, Cal State Fullerton, UC Irvine, UCLA and Cal Poly SLO are starting to pay attention.
