OMFG David Bowie's Is There Life On Mars at UC Regents Meeting...

is playing at the UC Regents Meeting- after a presentation by the Fed mixed with LLC Labs gave a presentation on Mars Curiosity rover-- protestors began to chant "No Cuts, No Peace, Education Must be Free" --officer came on mic at around 10:11am to tell them to disperse or else (part of the new policy as a result of the events last year resulting in the crunchy and fried)-- earlier, public comment was not handled well, nurses showed up to talk and they would not allow them, they said they were jumping around on the speakers list because of time constraints, real bad form. There was a pay raise for the Lab director and Yudof interjected that the raise really should not matter to the protestors cuz it was the fed that made em do it and not CA funds...then they want reverance and silence (which the presentation got, until the protest at the very end)

this is... first the presentation on Curiosity and then David Bowie Is There Life On Mars over the UC Regent Meeting microphones--Heaven.

"Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?"

Update: Lansing comes back on to open meeting at 10:23am and apologizes for disruption- but Gov. Brown said he wanted more disruption yesterday ;-)

Regents are now back in session Finance Committee is up for discussion now...

Oh Haas....

Tech Transfer/Patents discussion - 'Regent M- Blum, Lansing, Regent M will know the outside people to talk to'
Yudof: not imperialism, colonialism
this exchange is something to listen closely to...
