Strips indicate rlsk of
drivig after dnizkbzg

ALCOHOL
Continued from Page 1A
Angel Vice President Jeff Scult. "The
product is not intended to green-light
driving, but rather to help people
understand the risk they're taking if
they do."
But if people are drinking and driv-
ing, they already know the risks
involved, said Gail Epstein, bartender
at Ashley's on South State Street.
"(The strips) are not going to deter
people from driving. If they're going to
drink and drive, they will anyway.
Actually knowing their blood alcohol
level will not stop them from starting
the ignition," she said.
"The strips have some utility, but
when you're drinking, you have to
know your own limit and have friends
that will tell you when you've reached
it. I have friends I would trust over a
test strip," said Rackham student Paul
Bohensky.
Scult said the product is actually
intended as an intervention tool for
people who think their friends aren't
OK to drive. "Every friend has a
friend that is more sober than them,"
he said.
He added that the strips are also
meant for well-intentioned adults who
use the product throughout the evening
to monitor their drinking.
Whether the strips are encouraged
by friends or purchased by the
drinkers themselves, the drinkers'
sense of judgement must be used,
Bohensky said. "My question is, how
accurate are they?"
Scult said the strips have been
proven reliable in lab tests and by law
enforcement agencies in at least 15

states. Tim DeGlopper, a bartender at
Red Hawk Grill on South State Street,
believes differently.
"I've heard they're not very accu-
rate," he said. "If you compare them
with an actual breathalyzer, the strips
show a couple points lower."
"Of course, that doesn't mean
breathalyzers are right either - they
could be purposely too high," he
added.
Whether or not they are reliable,
DeGlopper said the strips are not a bad
idea.
"A lot of people definitely don't
realize how few drinks it takes to put
you over the legal limit," he said. He
added that police can give tickets for
driving while impaired, which is
defined as having a blood alcohol level
of .08.
Scult said the strips are extremely
popular on campuses nationwide.
Sororities and fraternities purchase
them in "party packs" that they hand
out at gatherings, and many campuses
sell them at bookstores, he said.
In and Out on East University
Avenue and the Diag Party Shoppe on
South State Street are the only places
in Ann Arbor selling the strips.
Employees at both stores said the prod-
uct is not a big seller.
Although Scult said the product is a
popular part of DUI prevention pro-
grams at law enforcement agencies,
workers at both the state of Michigan
and Ann Arbor police departments had
never heard of the product.
In response Scult said the product
hasn't had a chance to get to Ann
Arbor, but that the product and "party
packs" are available online at
www. drugstore. com.

CERT
Continued from Page IA
He added he doesn't think anyone who is
being academically honest can deny that the
country is in need of a new Supreme Court
standard regarding the use of race in admis-
sions.
"Even (the University of) Michigan doesn't
think that precedent from Bakke is clear," Levey
said.
Although amicus briefs filed at this stage in
proceedings usually do not have much of an
effect, he said this brief makes a powerful argu-
ment.
"If I would pick one that would have effect,
this would be it," Levey said.
"It takes a case that was likely to get cert and
makes it more likely."
Jonathan Alger, University assistant general
counsel, said the fact that the University has not
had any amicus briefs filed on its side at the
cert stage does not reflect a lack of general Uni-
versity support.

be accomplished overnight," she said. improve
"It takes a fundamental shift in how a Busines
firm conducts its business and learns Develop

"There is nobody on our side that has filed an
amicus brief because we haven't asked anyone
to," he said, adding that the University had sup-
port in the lower courts from a broad array of
institutions and corporations.
Alger said if the Supreme Court does grant
cert, the University plans to request amicus
briefs to be filed on its behalf.
"It's much more important when you're deal-
ing with the merits of the case," he said. "Right
now it's just a (procedural) question of whether
the Supreme Court will review the case."
Alger said it was important to note that in fil-
ing their brief on behalf of Barbara Grutter, the
states were not necessarily agreeing with her on
the merits of the case
"In fact, I expect quite the opposite," he said,
adding that any group requesting cert would at
this stage have to file on behalf of Grutter.
The Supreme Court has yet to rule whether it
will hear either the case facing the Law School
or that facing the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts, which is still awaiting a decision
in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

METEORS
Continued from Page 1A
trast of the skies is less hindered by street lamps or other
sources of light. Even after escaping city lights, overcast condi-
tions and fog may prevent the meteors from being viewed.
"I'm praying for good weather," he said.
Rackham student Joe Bernstein, a doctoral candidate in
astronomy and astrophysics, said the presence of a full moon
tonight may also dull visibility.
"There will likely be over 3,500 meteors, but you are only
going to see the brightest ones," Bernstein said. Nevertheless,
producing 2,000 or more visible meteors per hour, the second
wave of meteors is predicted to be the more spectacular.
Seeing the astronomic spectacle will be an historic event in
its own right. The trail of meteoric debris that will be visible in
Europe was emitted during its passage around the sun in 1767
while the second wave of the storm will feature debris emitted
in 1866.
The University Lowbrow Astronomers will host an open
house at Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter tonight beginning
at sunset to allow the public to view the Leonid meteors
through telescopes. The park will stay open all night until
dawn for the event.

ts environment. This may
moving from a bureaucratic
to one more humanistic and
responsible."
e companies still have room to
e, Al Cotrone, director of the
ss School Office of Career
pment, noted that many posi-

tive changes have been made in the
past two decades.
"Everyone's doing a better job,"
he said, in regard to minority recruit-
ment.
"People are more accommodating.
Companies are always looking for top
talent and they seem to be very con-

scientious about making their work
environment open and inviting to
anyone."
Wooten said she plans to conduct
further studies in the future regarding
this subject, including one on strate-
gic implications of human resource
management.

BODY IMAGE
Continued from Page 1A
finished rushing a sorority, but found that weight
issues were not a major issue during the process. "I
felt like rush was judging you totally, but you have to
remember that the girls went through it the year before
so they're not as judgmental as you think."
As 16 percent of the University's campus is
involved in the Greek system, there are many women
living together in sorority houses. Brzenchek has
made presentations in many of these houses and finds
the educational outreach present at these houses a very
positive thing. She said support from fellow sisters is
critical when dealing with weight and eating issues.
"They help you through it. They make you feel so
much better, so much more important than weight,"

said LSA freshman Kristi Paris.
"Panhel tries to empower its members through edu-
cation," Panhel President Monica Rose said.
Brzenchek said working with a well-organized
group of women helps with her programs because the
women are more receptive and they can form collec-
tive empowerment.
"They're asking me to come," Brzenchek said.
She has tried to make contact with women in the
residence halls but it is harder to concentrate on
developing programming there because the women
are disconnected.
Brzenchek develops and presents interactive pro-
grams that focus on the prevention of eating disorders.
When speaking, she focuses on empowerment and
advocacy.
In an effort to develop long-term programming that

will actually change the socialization of women,
Brzenchek works with the University Media Aware-
ness Coalition, an organization that works on "chal-
lenging destructive media messages through literacy,
activism and advocacy."
Brzenchek feels that socialization and mass media
portray unrealistic images of what a woman should
look like, leading to problems with body image. An
average woman is 5-foot-4, 144 pounds and a size 12.
An average model is 5-foot-lI and 117 pounds - a
weight that is 23 percent below the recommended
weight-height chart.
"We all sit around and read magazines and you'll
see girls that look perfect and just when you start to
feel badly about yourself, your friends are there to
remind you that you don't need to look like that and
they're probably fake anyway," Paris said.
