Assistant Secretary of State James
Kelly visited North Korea on Oct. 3-5
and demanded that the communist
state address global concerns about its
nuclear and other weapons programs.
In response, the Pyongyang govern-
ment accused Bush's special envoy of
making "threatening remarks." The
United States refused all comment on
the discussions.
Under the 1994 agreement, North
Korea promised to give up its nuclear
weapons program and to allow
inspections to verify that it did not
have the material needed to construct
such weapons.
But it has yet to allow the inspec-
tions, drawing criticism from the
Bush administration.
The agreement also called for the

construction of two light water
nuclear reactors to replace the pluto-
nium-producing reactors Pyongyang
had been using. The reactors were
being financed mostly by South
Korea and Japan. Construction of the
reactors began just two months ago.
An administration source said Kelly
also raised with North Korea evidence
that Pyongyang may have a urani-
mum-enrichment program. The pro-
gram, which the United States
believes would only be used to devel-
op a nuclear bomb, began under the
Clinton administration, according to
the official.
Surprisingly, North Korea con-
firmed the allegation.
The Bush administration has not
decided how to respond. "We're going
to keep talking," an official said.
After months of tension with South
Korea, the North resumed high-level
talks in August that restarted stalled
reconciliation efforts on the Korean
peninsula - divided by the most
heavily armed border in the world.
The Koreas were divided after
World War II and remained that way
at the end of the inconclusive Korean
War from 1950-53. About 37,000 U.S.
troops are stationed in South Korea as
a deterrent against the North.

"It will kill some normal breast tis-
sue as well, but mainly it will kill the
cancer," Sabel said.
Unlike standard treatments such as
mastectomy or lumpectomy where
part of or the entire breast is removed,
cryosurgery leaves minimal defect in
the breast. Because the procedure
leaves the membranes of the dead can-
cer cells intact, the body can reabsorb
the tissue to avoid any visible disfig-
urement in the breast.
Currently, a research trial is in
progress with women who are in the
early stages of breast cancer. The pri-
mary goal of the trial is to see
whether cryosurgery can stimulate the
body's immune system to destroy the
remaining or subsequent cancer cells.
Ideally, after recognizing the tumor
proteins, the immune system will
learn to fight off the cancer and pre-
vent it from spreading to other parts
of the body.

"I'm hoping that by freezing the
tumor, the immune system will learn
to recognize cancer and go out and
destroy cancer in other parts of the
body, the same way it looks for bacte-
ria or viruses with certain proteins,"
Sabel said.
After undergoing cryosurgery, trial
participants are tested three weeks
later to determine if the cancer has
been destroyed and if the immune sys-
tem has been stimulated.
"If it stimulates the immune system,
then it might be better than surgery."
Sabel added that cryosurgery
involves less pain than conventional
breast cancer treatments.
"It can cause very few side effects.
Of the patients we've treated, none of
them have needed pain medication
besides Tylenol."
Breast cancer is the second leading
cause of cancer death among women.
This year alone, approximately
200,000 women were diagnosed, and
a predicted 40,000 women will die
from it.

Bruce Williams talked about his relationship
with Peterman and their children and said it was
important that this cycle not be passed on to the
children of the community.
"I just don't want my daughter growing up
seeing her mom and dad fight," Bruce
Williams said.
The lecture was sponsored by University Hous-
ing, The School of Social Work, The Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness Center and the
Interdisciplinary Research Program on Violence
Across the Lifespan.

members at the University disagree
with the idea behind making fake
"I wish people would take pride in
what they actually accomplish instead
of what it looks like they accomplish,"
said English Prof. Jackie Livesay.
LSA sophomore Areej El-Jawahri
agreed with Livesay. "It undermines the
whole structure of society because peo-
ple would be getting jobs that they
aren't able to perform," she said.
In contrast, the homepage for
degrees-r-us.com explains to viewers
that these degrees are intended for
those who already have skill and prac-
tice in a particular area. "Three years
experience in a field qualifies you for
a degree," it reads.
Clicking on the legal information
page of this company's website, howev-
er, arouses additional concern. It states
that the university which it endorses is
"a legally organized educational corpo-
ration, which is not fully operational at
the present time ... It has no campus,
neither faculty nor student body. It
exists on paper and on the web ..."
Under the headline "Formerly Only
For the Rich and Famous," this compa-
ny justifies its cause by saying that in
this democratic time, the privileges that
were once awarded to the wealthy are
now available to "you" without consid-
eration of current economic status.

Kerin Borland, senior associate direc-
tor of the University's Career Planning
and Placement, said there is not much
reason for concern over this issue. "In a
lot of ways it is clearly a fake," she said.
"If a student was asked for supple-
mentary information, it would be for an
official or an unofficial transcript," Bor-
land said. Also, in the recruitment
process, applicants are usually inter-
viewed and asked for resume materials
prior to graduation.
Borland added that any individual
using fake diplomas would be "put-
ting themselves in jeopardy" not only
in the short term, but also in the long
term, influencing their future as a pro-
Ann Arbor lawyer Aaron Larson
shares Borland's perspective on this
issue. "I do realize that it is a concern
for companies with large numbers of
applicants who may not recognize (the
dishonesty involved)."
But it's less of an issue for smaller
companies and "when you are working
with the law"
"My general opinion on this is the
same as with so many other types of
fraud through the Internet, such as
homework services for small amounts
of money and other services to help
people commit fraud," said Larson.
"My opinion is quite low"
"A bought diploma means nothing,"
Livesay added. "It says something very
sad that people care a lot more about
appearance than reality."

counties and municipalities to
improve their sewage systems.
According to the non-partisan Senate
Fiscal Agency, it will cost each tax-
payer $334 over the 30 years, or $11
per year.
Some, however, are not sure the
state should get involved in the issue.
"There are communities that have
failed to maintain their sewer systems
- which is a core function of govern-
ment," said Diane Katz, director of
science, environment and technology
policy for the Midland-based Mack-
inac Center for Public Policy. "What

they've done instead is focus on what
I'd consider more marginal functions
of governments," such as providing
for recreational centers.
"Sewage overflows are more of an
inconvenience than an environmental
threat, like when they cause beach
closings," Katz said. If the loans are
so necessary, she said, the state should
not be borrowing money but rather
spending money out of its coffers.
Additionally, of the funds, 10 per-
cent would go to the Strategic Water
Quality Initiatives Fund for septic
tank improvements.

Supporters argue that by fixing the
sewer systems, Michigan will water
will be made more clean, thus fueling
economic development along rivers
and lakes and protecting the health of
state residents.
Dan Farough, political director of
the Sierra Club's Michigan branch,
said, "Communities need to reclaim
these rivers that are being made in
many cases undesirable because of
combined sewer overflows. We'
think the cost of inaction is far
more than the cost of some preven-
tative medicine."
