University. The most recent case at the Uni-
versity occurred in 1995 and involved only
one student, who contracted the viral form
of the disease and died two years later from
unrelated swelling of the brain.
Meningitis vaccines cost around $100 and
are available at UHS to any student who has not
been previously vaccinated. Winfield said UHS
has vaccinated fewer students in recent years but
added that more students are receiving vaccina-
tions in their hometowns. UHS currently stores
enough of the vaccine to immunize 100 people,
but Winfield said the University could easily
Cinti said as long as students receive a vacci-
nation and take standard health precautions, the
chances of contracting the disease are negligible.
"I would say the risk (for the students) outside
of close contact is almost zero," Cinti said. "I
don't think they have to take extra precautions
for this particular problem."

for many months. Clashes between opposi-
tion supporters and police have led to hun-
dreds of deaths and thousands of arrests.
Inspired by the events in Ethiopia and
her desire to show her students how to
become politically active, Demessie asked
her two political science sections to help
her organize an event to bring the problems
with democratization to the attention of the
American government and local commu-
"We talk about this in lecture, so we fig-
ured what better way to learn about this
than to actually do it ourselves," Demessie
The students called members of Con-
gress and publicized a forum held yester-
day called, "Ethiopia Emergency Briefing:
Violence, Civil Unrest, and 'Democracy' in
Ethiopia," which aimed to educate people
on the current situation in the country.
They also documented the opinions of
panelists.and attendees in order to create a
short film to send to members of Michigan's
congressional delegation and the Congres-
sional Caucus on Ethiopia and Ethiopian-
Americans, Demessie said.
Speakers at the forum included University
graduate students who traveled to Ethiopia
last year through a class in the Ford School
of Public Policy and Ethiopian professors
from universities across Michigan.
"At a very local, campus level; we're try-
ing to make a lot of noise about what is
going on," Demessie said.
Participants in last night's event criti-
cized the Zenawi government for creating
a "make-believe democracy" and ignoring
the will of Ethiopian citizens.
"(The people) are saying enough is
enough. Let's listen to them," said panelist
Meskerem Baalu Girma.
In the aftermath of the election, the
opposition party refused to participate in
the government and organized protests
throughout the country.
On Nov. 1 it called for a week of civil
disobedience to protest electoral fraud and
the imprisonment of thousands of opposi-
tion supporters. Since the protests began,
46 individuals have been killed and many
more arrested. Some protestors face death
if convicted on charges of treason.
Event participants stressed the need for
international, especially U.S., diplomatic
intervention in the African nation.
"Now the problem is contained within
Ethiopia. Let's just give it a little bit of time
and this problem will become the world's
problem," Girma said.
The United States has supported the
Zenawi government because it has main-
tained political stability in a relatively
volatile area of the world and because it is
also an ally in the war on terror, Demessie
But, the opposition party would be much
more effective in preventing the growth
of terrorism within Ethiopia and Africa
because it has the mandate of the people,
"In order to combat terror in the long
run you have to free people," agreed panel-
ist Solomon Addis Getahun, a professor at
Central Michigan University.
During the past week, Demessie and her
students also collected more than 400 sig-
natures for a petition calling on the Bush
administration to use all diplomatic means
possible to stop the violence and promote
democracy in Ethiopia.
The current situation is a turning point
for Ethiopia, said event participants.
After years of dictatorships, military
regimes and semi-democratic rule, the
country now has a chance to become fully
democratic if it can receive the necessary
international support, panelists and orga-
"Even though the democratic train
appears to be derailed," said Sisay Asefa, a
professor at Western Michigan University.
"It is necessary to put it back (on track)."

For Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2005
(March 21 to April 19)
It's a busy day, but things are starting
to fall neatly into place now. Problems
that increased before yesterday's Full
Moon thankfully now diminish. (It looks
like this cloud has a silver lining.)
(April 20 to May 20)
Money issues start to look a bit better
today. Thank goodness. This is a good
time to wrap up stuff that has been sim-
mering on the back burner.
(May 21 to June 20)
The Moon is in your sign today. This
gives you a little edge over every other
sign. However, you might feel a bit more
emotional about things. (It's no big
(June 21 to July 22)
Ideally, you need a little bit of time
just for yourself today. Slip away some-
where for a quiet moment if you can fit
one in. (Why not do the crossword in
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
A conversation with a female friend is
significant today. Someone might need
to confide in you. Give genuine, caring
attention to anyone who needs it.
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Think about your appearance today.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
You might have to make a compro-
mise with someone today. Basically, it
boils down to having different values.
This could give you an entirely new slant
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Today's Moon opposes your sign. This
completely focuses your attention on
partners, close friends and members of
the general public. You're very involved
talking to others today.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Work with groups or perhaps a friend
to accomplish something today. Tackle
projects. If you join your efforts with
others, you can make great progress
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
This is a playful, flirtatious day! You
might meet someone new. You might
also make fresh plans for entertaining
activities, parties or social diversions.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Home, family and domestic matters
are your focus today. Talk to parents. Set
aside time for family discussions. Shop
for items for your home, especially read-
ing and writing material.
