of questioning with new members,
While OSCR investigated the valid-
ity of the allegations, the national
chapter temporarily suspended ZBT,
Two other organizations were sus-
pended by their national chapters, and
there are no reports as to whether their
suspensions have been lifted.
However, these fraternities may not
necessarily undergo the same conse-
quences as ZBT because each national
chapter sets its own parameters of sus-
pension, Interfraternity Council spokes-
man Alan Lovi said.
As soon as ZBT officials received the
initial e-mail from OSCR, OSCR did a
round of questioning with new mem-
bers, Banschick said.
Eklund described the process,
which also proceeded for all the other
houses under investigation, as "asking
new members in for an interview, as
well as officers (of the fraternity or
sorority) and witnesses, which often
lead to other people being called in

Maher clearly subscribes to the idea
that religion was the real story in this
election. When asked about his stance
that the dominating influence of the
Christian Right, Maher responded, "I
believe that. I got a lot of shit about
that on the show. But this election in
my view was lost in the spring when
gay marriage went on the ballot."
"When Karl Rove saw gay people
getting married in February, March and
schick said he met with Lt. Chris
Heatley from AAPD.
Banschick described the atmo-
sphere of his meeting with the AAPD
as good, but emphasized the difficulty
of the circumstances.
"It's a weird situation we are put in
because we find we have to defend our-
selves for something we never did."
Banschick said the fraternity is
dealing with the situation as best as
The allegations and investigative
process have set the fraternity back, but
has not stopped it from doing what they
want to do, he said.
"Three new members are running for
IFC board positions, which is something
that hasn't happened in over a decade."
Banschick said that he and his frater-
nity have learned a lesson and hope that
they have strengthened their ties with
The University has not suspended any
fraternities or sororities, but its inves-
tigation has not yet been completed,
"We are hopeful that around Thanks-
giving, whether before or after, we will
be able to offer resolutions through the
Office of Student Conflict Resolution,"
April, I think he probably said, 'There is
my Willie Horton. There is my election."'
His criticism, however, is hardly
confined to just Republicans. "We hit
all sides," he said, "but let's be honest,
they (the Republicans) are the ones in
power. And the people in power are
always going to get it a little harder."
How does Maher expect his audi-
ence in Ypsilanti to react?
"It's, I think, something of a cathar-
tic experience for a lot of people,
because there is a lot of things that
make people mad."

1000th cochlear device into a patient.
But in the past, many in the deaf community
rejected the implant out of the concern that the
device would threaten the existence of the deaf
culture, said Teresa Zwolan, director of the Univer-
sity's Cochlear Implant Program and professor in
Many believed the implant would transform a
deaf person into a hearing person - which goes
against the deaf culture, Zwolan added.
Where the device once faced public outcry from
the deaf community though, the cochlear implant
draws less ire with each year as the number of sur-
geries for the implant grows. Moreover, many hard-
of-hearing people have accepted the need for the
When choosing whether to undergo surgery for
the device, deaf people weigh the benefits and draw-
backs of the implant like any other surgery
The costs, the patient's degree of deafness and
the inability of doctors to know how much hear-
ing wil be restored were all factored in Tawakkul's
decision to choose the implant.
Backed by his family and teachers, Tawakkul
underwent the surgery, knowing it was one of his
best chances to hear again. But, underlining the
decision for others is the worry of losing their deaf
identity after regaining their hearing.
"Traditionally, the deaf community has been
opposed to it since their deafness is a part of the
definition of who they are, and if we try to fix their
deafness, it will change who they are," Zwolan
During the advent of the cochlear implant,
Zwolan said the device implied that deafness was a
disability rather than another perfectly valid way of
living life, she added.
This opposition climaxed when the devices were
implanted on deaf children during the early 1990s,
causing many in the deaf community to protest
against the cochlear implant. Deaf people argued
hard-of-hearing children could live their lives per-
fectly, despite their deafness, so they rejected the
surgery, she added.
Since then, much of the division engendered by
the device has eroded, Zwolan said. Citing that
close to 100 members of Ann Arbor's deaf commu-
nity have undergone the surgery, Zwolan said the
implant has become a personal decision for indi-
viduals and for parents of deaf children.
"It's a personal choice that depends on what they
want the deaf implant for, and some people just
want to hear. It's not a tool to change who they are
or where they belong. It's just a tool to help them
hear," she said.
Rackham student Richard Eckert, who is deaf,
respects that personal decision, but like some in the
deaf community, he remains unconvinced about the
With his hearing aid and his lip-reading skills,
Eckert said there is no need for the device since he
can understand speech most of the time.
At the same time, the current cochlear implant
would destroy his ability to use a hearing aid
since it would also require surgeons to eliminate
his residual hearing in order for the device to
"So, it is a gamble. For some people it works and
if that is what they want - great. I see no reason
to take such a gamble, especially with the improve-
ments to digital hearing aids and with future possi-
bilities of cochlea hair regeneration," he said.
Highlighting that risk is Eckert's wife who once
wore a cochlear implant but later developed a con-
stant pain in her head.
While the concern that deaf culture was threat-
ened by the implant has dissolved over the years, the
device has nonetheless affected the makeup of the
As the number of individuals with the cochlear
implants grows, Zwolan said the device has resulted
in fewer individuals to in the deaf community.
Because the deaf community is primarily made
up of people who know sign language, children
who receive the cochlear implant generally do not
need to rely on signing as a way to communicate,
"If you don't use sign language, you are not really
accepted by the deaf community," she said.
But deaf students at the University's Hearing
Impaired Student Organization have broken those
barriers, creating a unique community of their own
Not only have many in the deaf community at the
University come to terms with the device, but many
also see that the surgery does little to a person's
Even with the surgery, Tawakkul is still seen as
a deaf person among his peers in the student orga-
"I explained to them with what my situation is
with the cochlear implant and they found it accept-
ing so it was not a problem at all after educating
them," he said.
Yet Tawakkul added in order to strike a balance
and deepen his relationship with the deaf commu-
nity, he says that he needs to learn sign language
- a trait which unites them into a culture.

Just outside the Jolan and Askari neighborhoods,

The top U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen. George
Casey, predicted a "major confrontation" in the opera-

U.S. troops along with a smaller number of Iraqi forc-
