Here’s the rund0wn on the week:

  • Ana Matasantos, ’97, is the California financial director under Jerry Brown. Her job might be a little tricky
  • Stanford MBAs make the most money out of any business school, and the Career Management Center, with an eHarmony-like approach, probably has something to do with it
  • The is working with Stanford Department of Public Safety on improving bike safety
  • The Scope blog reports that Stanford is hoping on the first human embryonic stem cell trial
  • Stanford will have the first center from Intel Labs for research on computing and communications. Expect more construction on-campus
  • Stanford is #6 on the percentage of the undergrads living on-campus at 91%
  • Research by Alex Jordan, former psychology PhD, found that people were sadder when they overestimated the happiness of other people. The research was done on Stanford students and frankly comes as no surprise to me, though is probably better known as Stanford Duck Syndrome
  • Mark Jacobson, civil and environmental engineering professor, has managed to get his house off the grid
