Last week, I showed a video of Dr. Zach Lutsky (C'97) teaching Dr. Oz and us how to save a life.
After I did that post Kiera Reilly (C'93) emailed me to let me know that Dr. Oz is also a Penn alum.
The very ambitious Dr. Mehmet Cengiz Oz actually graduated from Penn Med (M'86) and Wharton Business School (WG'86)!
Learn more about Dr. Oz in an extensive article from the NY Time’s magazine supplement HERE (Penn referenced on page 3)

Last fall, we started our "An Actor's Path" vlog series with Penn alum Alex Weber (C'09, Lacrosse). Throughout this year we're tracking Alex's journey as a new actor here in Hollywood.
In my Alex's last post on DT, Alex starred in a commercial with some of his idols.
In this month's episode, Alex talks about a big budget commercial he was cast in, what important "actor" task he needs to finish very soon, his return to Penn, and how important networking is for an actor.

Amy Gutmann pronounced the students of Class of 2011 "seniors". As you alumni see (and remember), much excitement and debauchery ensues during this ceremony.
I too remember feeling this way, but for some reason when I looked at this year's video above, I had a different perspective altogether...
For our Earth Day contest last week, entrepreneurs Aakash Mathur (W'09) and Jay Parekh's (SEAS '09) donated 3 of their revolutionary new Hydros water bottles (retail value $29.99) to 3 creative DT readers who told us what they are doing and/or plan on doing to go green.
After the jump, find out who won and read their winning entries.
