painting murals and making flower beds in
more than 63 parts of Brightmoor.
But the day isn't just about spring clean-
A few years ago, amid concerns about
what students were really getting out of a
single day of service, DP mandated that its
student leaders go through a training process
to teach them about Detroit's economic and
This education sessions also serve to less-
en the stigmas associated with the city.
"Everyone thinks, aw, man wear you bul-
let proof vest in Detroit. It's not like that at
all," said LSA senior Paul Teske, a DP Day
director who has been involved with the proj-
ect since his freshman year.
Students reflected as they worked.
Describing a demolished house, Engi-
neering senior Tim MacGuidwin said, "It's
sad once you think about it. You think, this
was someone's house, there were kids here,
there was a Tickle-me-Elmo doll."
Seven years ago, DP Day began as a small
effort to clean up Detroit. Today it has grown
into a organization that sends members into
the city every day in addition to hosting
weekly projects. Students travel to Detroit to
participate in activities like tutoring elemen-
tary school children in math and reading. DP
Day is the year's culminating event.
DP Day works closely with about 30 other
schools and community organizations in the
Detroit area. It is also part of the Brightmoor
Alliance, a group of organizations dedicated
to improving the city and forming a partner-
ship between Detroit and Ann Arbor.
After working for almost five hours,
participants and site leaders gathered
at a stage in Stoeple Park to listen
to the Friars, a University a cappela
group, and two inspirational speakers
who talked about their efforts to aid

Many believe that IPTV is the future of television. It
connects televisions to the home Internet connection with
a box on top of the set. By only sending video information
that its viewers are watching, it saves on bandwidth. Tradi-
tional cable divides up all available bandwidth and sends
all programs continuously, whether watched or not.
Until IPTV is more readily available, viewers can see
Green.tv stories by downloading them from the website or
by subscribing to the podcast.
If you've ever streamed video on your computer, you've
already used a primitive version of IPTV. You choose
what you watch and when you watch it. You can pause,
fast-forward - even watch more than one program at a
time. Unlike previous technology, the latest version of
IPTV broadcasts in high-definition quality.
Akimbo, a California company that offers IPTV ser-
vice through the Internet, looks much like a traditional
cable service with more than 100 channels. They include
the Food Network, A&E, National Geographic and the
Other companies, telecoms in particular, are upgrad-
ing their networks to handle IPTV bandwidth. This will
allow them to compete with cable companies for in-home
video. AT&T is developing a version of IPTV called U-
verse, which is currently available in limited areas, and is
expected to expand coverage later this year.

De Mello suffered a serious sprain to her neck.
She will miss the remainder of the season, but is
expected to fully recover.
Finally, after a 30-minute delay, the meet
resumed and the Wolverines won handedly.
But the real question is not who won or who
lost. It is why the ambulance took so long to
arrive. And what can be done to improve response
Red Cross volunteers, trained to adminis-
ter first aid, are present at every athletic event,
Madej said. But for a serious injury like one that
could be suffered at a gymnastics meet, it could
still take time for the proper response.
Joyce Williams of Huron Valley Ambulance
said ambulances on call at athletic events are
contracted by the Athletic Department at a cost
of $100 per hour. Under the contract, HVA pro-
vides one ambulance and two emergency person-
nel for the requested event.
The Athletic Department only contracts
ambulances for football, hockey and men's
basketball games. For all other games,
the michigan daily
Huron Valley Ambulance uses Crisler
Arena as a pullout station, Madej said.
As a pullout station, there is supposed to be an
ambulance in the general area, either driving
or parked, at all times. If the ambulance leaves
for a call, another vehicle is supposed to rotate
into the area. While an ambulance is expected
to rotate into the spot at Crisler Arena quickly,
there is no guaranteed time in which an ambu-
lance must arrive.
The status at the time of the injury of the
ambulance expected to be near Crisler is unclear,
but the lengthy response time suggests that it had
left on another call, officials said.
A University-sponsored ambulance service
like the one used at Michigan State University
might improve response times. Rick Atkinson,
assistant athletic director for facilities and event
management at MSU said ambulances are always
close by in East Lansing.
"We have pretty good response times - less than
five minutes," Atkinson said. "It definitely helps that
we have our own EMS services on campus."
Such an endeavor would certainly be costly.
The athletic department already spends more than
$50,000 dollars in contracts for HVA ambulances at
football, hockey and men's basketball games.
In the case of larger sports, crowd size makes
ambulances a necessity.

year," said Bob Brown, who graduated from
the University in 1970 and has attended every
Hash Bash except one. "There were a lot more
students back in the 70's."
As a man wearing an oversized cowboy
hat and large star-shaped glasses played
background music on an accordion, Josh
Soper, director of the University's chapter of
the National Organization for the Reform of
Marijuana Laws, explained why students were
largely absent from the rally.
"I think the students don't come
because it's been dominated by people
from out of town - older people, non-
students - and it kind of has that image,"
he said. "I think if we did more advertis-
ing on campus it would help, but it's hard
to get people to flyer."
Dressed in floor-length dreadlocks and
technicolor pants, a man who called himself
Chef RA had a different take on why Hash
Bash attendance has dwindled and why less
"The times have been more conservative in
recent years," said Chef RA, who is a chem-
ist for the prominent cannabis magazine, High
Times. "People are afraid of being associated
with an event like this because they feel it is
going to be detrimental to their job or they will
be arrested by the heavy police presence."
Event organizer Adam Brooks warned
people of smoking on the Diag because of the
heavier fines on University property and the
heightened police presence. '
At one point, he asked the crowd to sit sud-
denly to expose the police patrolling among
the peaceful protestors, which they did.
Brooks explained that University crack-
downs and an increased police presence since
,the deputizing of the Department of Public
Safety have prevented Hash Bash from con-
tinuing to be a "smoke in." Student organi-
zations must register for a permit to hold the
bash because the event is held on University
Supporters of marijuana law reform turned
up to the rally to show their solidarity for repeal
of what they claim are strict laws.
Kathy Kennedy, 56, said she is partially
opposed to laws because of racial implica-
The first pot laws, she said, "were enacted
in El Paso, Texas, mainly because they wanted
to persecute non-white populations - to per-
After the rally, protestors marched to Mon-
roe Street to continue the festivities. On the
street - the closest off-campus area to the
Diag - the penalty for smoking pot is only a
$25 civil infraction. The on-campus penalty is
a $100 dollar misdemeanor punishable by up
to 90 days in jail.
The atmosphere of Monroe Street was more
relaxed than the heavily policed Diag, with
people passing joints and smoking small pipes
openly. Groundscore, a band based in Holly,
entertained the eclectic crowd with funky-
feeling, jam-band style music while smokers
wearing ponchos and leis made of pot leaves
danced and mingled with the old and young
Amidst street vendors selling everything
from colorful glass pipes to handmade Hash
Bash stickers, Engineering freshman Fej
Brandt pulled out his brand-new pipe and lit
up in the middle of the street.
"It's like 'Shakedown Street' at a concert,'
he said, comparing the atmosphere to a busy
avenue at a music festival. "Everyone just kind
of bumming around and a little vending. You
can pick up whatever."
He added that the bash is "one of the things
that made coming (to the University) sweet."
