UC Riverside officials are in the process of notifying anyone on campus who may have had contact with a student advisor who was diagnosed with meningitis this past weekend. A campus spokeswoman confirmed Monday that the advisor has been hospitalized, but the severity of the case is unknown. The announcement came days after UC Santa Barbara announced a fourth case of meningitis among its students. While most were expected to fully recover, one of them, a freshman lacrosse player, had to have his feet amputated.

Stan Sheldon places his blowtorch between two spinning glass tubes. He blows into a mouthpiece that looks like a cigarette perched on his bottom lip. Air enters one end of a tube and puffs up through smoldering, wilting glass. As the tubes appear near collapse, they fuse and bursts of light explode inside - tiny fireworks of blue, red and orange trying to escape. Sheldon is the last remaining glass blower at UC Riverside, where he designs and creates glassware strictly for scientific research on campus.

Loyola Marymount is off to a 4-0 start and just defeated Northern Arizona, 90-78, with much less trouble than USC had in felling the Lumberjacks. Anthony Ireland , a senior guard from Connecticut, has been the Lions' star. He twice has had double-doubles in points and assists as Loyola Marymount is off to its best start since the 2003-04 season. Coach Max Good said the Lions have been playing "a pretty aggressive style of defense that at times creates some easy baskets for the opponent, but it also generates opportunities for us on offense.

Reaction was broad and swift Thursday to the announcement by UC president Janet Napolitano that she would allocate $5 million in university funds to help the system's estimated 900 students who entered the country illegally.   The issue of how to treat those who don't have proper immigration papers is a hot one for Napolitano. Critics contend that, in her previous job as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, she oversaw an increase in deportations and they have protested her selection as UC president.

In her first major address since taking office, she also said she will boost support for graduate and postdoctoral researchers by $10 million. Napolitano has encountered some protests in her first month on the job because of what critics contend was the increase in deportations that she oversaw as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.

A window in the skull won't let anyone read your mind, but it may give doctors on-demand access to take images of the brain or check the progress of cancer without repeated surgeries. UC Riverside researchers say they have engineered the right material for a window that would be about 10 times stronger than glass and facilitate diagnosis of cancer, study of brain function or delivery of therapies aimed at neurological diseases and psychiatric disorders. The team successfully imaged a mouse's brain through the engineered pane using optical coherence tomography, the light-based equivalent of a sonogram that can produce minutely detailed images of soft tissue.

UC San Diego and UC Riverside are first and second in the annual "socially conscious" ranking of national universities being released Monday by Washington Monthly magazine. For the fourth year in a row, the San Diego campus topped the Washington Monthly list which emphasizes such factors as enrolling and graduating low-income students, supporting research and encouraging students' public service. The 10-campus UC system once again did very well -- with four campuses in the top 10 and six in the top 25. UC Riverside moved up to second nationally from ninth last year.
