actions against Palestinians and Israelis wherever they are,"
Abbas declared in a statement made after the meetings, as
he, Sharon, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan's
King Abdullah II sat around a round table.
Sharon made a similar pledge.
"Today, in my meeting with chairman Abbas, we agreed
that all Palestinians will stop all acts of violence against all
Israelis everywhere, and, at the same time, Israel will cease
all its military activity against all Palestinians everywhere,"
Abbas said he expected the cease-fire pledges to pave the
way for resumption of talks on so-called "final status" issues
such as borders, refugees and Jerusalem's status, all within
the context of the Mideast "road map" to peace. Sharon said
he also expected the deal yesterday to set the stage for the
implementation of the "road map."
Sharon also invited Abbas to visit him at his ranch in
southern Israel and Abbas accepted, Meir said. Palestinian
Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath said the meeting would take
Sharon said he would like the next meeting between the
two leaders to be in the West Bank town of Ramallah, accord-
ing to an adviser, Raanan Gissin.
The White House commended the leaders on their
"The cessation of violence and terrorism are important
steps on the path to ending terrorism in the region and dis-
mantling the terrorists' infrastructure," spokesman Scott
McClellan told reporters on Air Force One as Bush flew to a
speech in Detroit. "The United States will continue doing its
part to help the parties move forward."
As part of the handover of five West Bank towns, Israeli
and Palestinian security commanders are to meet tomor-
row to prepare the handover of Jericho, the first West

standardized tests. The new $4,000 award would be avail-
able to college and technical school students in 2009, after
they have finished two years of post-secondary education.
By giving money to students after they have completed some
amount of higher education, Granholm said she hopes to
extend education for more students beyond their high school
The new award would replace the current award that was
Bank town in the list of five, said Palestinian negotiator
Hassan Abu Libdeh.
After the immediate release of 500 Palestinian prisoners,
another 400 will be released at a later stage, he said.
Asked whether Hamas would continue its attacks against
Israel after the summit, the group's representative in Leba-
non, Osama Hamdan, replied: "Our decision depends on the
achievement of a substantial change (in Israel's position) to
meet Palestinian demands and conditions."
Hamdan said for a truce to be successful, Israel must release
Palestinian prisoners and make a clear commitment to "halt
all kinds of aggression against the Palestinian people."
He contended those conditions were not met at the summit.
In Jerusalem, a key parliamentary committee narrowly
approved a bill that would allow Sharon to carry out his
planned pullout from the Gaza Strip and part of the West
Bank in the summer. The vote passed 10-9 on a subject that
has split Sharon's party and angered his main constituency.
Abbas said it was time for the Palestinian people to regain
"A new opportunity for peace is born today in the city of peace.
Let's pledge to protect it," Abbas said, referring to the nickname
of Sharm el-Sheik earned through past peace summits.
And Sharon, in what he said was a direct address to the
Palestinian people, said: "I assure you that we have a genuine
intention to respect your rights to live independently and in
dignity. I have already said that Israel has no desire to con-
tinue to govern over you and control your fate."
Mubarak, who summoned the two leaders and has been a
key mediator, said there also was fresh hope for Syrian-Israeli
peace negotiations, which have been frozen since 2000.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said Egypt
and Jordan will return their ambassadors to Israel after a four-
year absence, possibly within days. Egypt and Jordan lowered
their diplomatic representation in Israel in late 2000 to protest
what they saw as Israel's excessive use of force against Pales-
tinians in the fighting that began in September that year.
first administered under the Michigan Educational Assess-
ment Program but has continued after Granholm and the state
legislature eliminated the MEAP last month.
Sikkema said he believed the new award would encourage
fewer high school graduates to enroll in college because the old
award was a "deciding factor" in whether some graduates would
enroll and be able to pay for college out of high school.
Michigan is ranked 44th in states whose 25- to 34-year-
old populations have a bachelor's degree or higher - the age
group that will shoulder the ongoing transition of the state
economy from manufacturing to high-tech and service jobs.

(maintain their residence status),
SLS also wants to bring back a
lawyer, as part of the Housing Legal
Reform Project, who would concen-
trate specifically on student hous-
ing issues. The position was vacated
years ago due to lack of funding
and if filled again, would hold the
lawyer responsible for litigating on
behalf of student tenants on a group
and individual basis.
"Although Student Legal Services
already provides great services to
students, the launching of the HLRP
will provide greater assistance to
students by offering additional coun-
seling for landlord-tenant disputes
and will help implement new city
ordinances that will save tenants
money in the future," said MSA Stu-
dent General Counsel Jesse Levine,
an LSA junior and member of MSA's
SLS advisory board.
Lewis said one of the main prob-
lems SLS has is keeping track of
long-term issues. A large part of
the HLRP's position would be to
organize group-specific complaints
about housing issues and landlords
HLRP would monitor the com-
plaints to search for general trends in
order to approach these issues more
efficiently. For example, Lewis said
that if 10 landlords are in violation
of the same breach of contract, SLS
could file a class-action lawsuit.
"We do tons of landlord-tenant
issues. We want to try and group
similar issues together," he said.
One issue of concern to students is
landlords' use of joint-responsibility
clauses in their leases. Students who
have this type of clause in their leas-
es may be subject to many different
types of financial burdens. Some
landlords will hold an entire house
responsible for a fire, even if only
one or none of the housemates was
responsible. Some landlords will
also hold one tenant responsible for
paying another housemate's overdue
Another issue Lewis would like
the HLRP to tackle concerns secu-
rity deposits. Currently, some land-
lords force students to pay a security
deposit to renew their leases months
before the leases expire and then
keep those security deposits without
paying interest to the students.
"I'd really love to see us get an
ordinance passed that says land-
lords have to pay interest on secu-
rity deposits. Maybe that would slow
down some of this (early re-signing)
frenzy," Lewis said.
SLS is awaiting a decision regard-
ing funding for its proposed expan-
sion from the regents.

University alum Avani Bhatt said.
Bhatt also said she enjoyed the
way Walker incorporated spiritual
ideas into politics.
RC junior Carla Thomas said the
part of the speech that she found most
compelling was when Walker stated
that it is not enough to focus on the
problems imposed by other people,
such as being denied civil rights.
"We can no longer exclusively look
outward," Thomas said.
Others, however, wished Walker
would have gone into detail on how
exactly to act on the ideas presented.
"She provided a wonderful plan on
how to change the world, but no real way
to implement it," LSA sophomore Nick
Robbie Townsel-Dye, coordinator for
the Minority Peer Advisor Program and
also a member of the Black History Month
planning committee, said the committee
chose Walker to speak because of her
feminist and activist viewpoints.
"How she looked at activism from
a different perspective kind of makes
you think," Townsel-Dye said.
"She was very intellectual, very
thoughtful, one of the best speak-
ers that I've heard on campus," said
Frederic MacDonald-Dennis, plan-
ning committee member and direc-
tor of the Office of Lesbian Gay
Bisexual and Transgender Affairs.
Walker was named one of the 50
future leaders of America by Time
magazine, and also co-founded the
Third Wave Foundation, a national
nonprofit organization dedicated to
developing young female activists

Programs such as Marketscore are
not illegal - chiefly because the user
has to agree to install it - which
can often happen unintentionally.
Marketscore is cleverly tucked
away into many programs that stu-
dents may download form the Inter-

that they purchase, said Howell.
"It's our prediction that this is the
first among many spyware applica-
tions to come out," said Howell.
