Dearborn, meanwhile, is
nt Asian.
udy also claims that Asian

and Arab American voters faced dif-
ficulty when voting in last fall's elec-
tion. In Dearborn and Hamtramck,
Arab American voters struggled to
find interpreters and bilingual infor-
mation and poll workers refused to
help, the study says. Asian Ameri-
can voters also reported a lack of
adequately translated materials.
The study says about 57 percent
of Arab and Asian American voters
were required to show indentifica-
tion in order to vote, even though
the law says that only first-time vot-
ers need to show ID.
Magpantay said Asian-language
voting instructions are often hung
upside down or not displayed at all.
Language problems are a com-
plex topic, Political Science Prof.
Ann Chih Lin said. She said natu-

ralized immigrants must pass an
English test to become U.S. citi-
zens, meaning all eligible voters
can speak and understand English.
Lin said that despite English pro-
ficiency, the complex language in
polling instructions and the politi-
cal jargon of referendums can be
confusing for non-native speakers.
She also said that while election
officials often cater to Hispanic vot-
ers, they struggle to cater to Asian
voters because they are a much
less-recognized minority.
Another problem is the number
of different dialects of Asian lan-
guages, Magpantay said. He said
that election workers have mis-
takenly given Mandarin Chinese
translations of ballots to voters who
only speak Cantonese, for example.

Amaker's wife, Stephanie Pin-
der-Amaker, is expected to be part
of the Harvard faculty as well,
according to the Globe. Pinder-
Amaker is the associate dean of
students at the University.
Pinder-Amaker, a clinical psy-
chologist, led the faculty and staff
section ofthe University's Michigan

Tuesday, April 10, 2007 - 7
intiative launched by University
President Mary Sue Coleman.
Pinder-Amaker declined a
request for an interview with The
Michigan Daily after her husband
was fired last month.
Harvard does not have a black
coach in any of its 32 sports, and
the Globe reports that Harvard
Athletic Director Bob Scalise was
interested in adding diversity to the
athletic department. .
The top two candidates were
rumored to be Amaker and former
St. John's coach Mike Jarvis.

For Tuesday, April 10, 2007
ARIES
(March 21to April 19)
Power struggles with others are likely,
especially about ideologies or opinions
about religion and politics. Try to avoid
these disputes, because they just make
everyone miserable.
"TAURUS
(April 20to May 20)
You're taking an intense stance on
something. You're digging in your heels
today to hold your ground. Perhaps this
is good; perhaps this is foolish?
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
Avoid arguments with groups or
acquaintances. You might win an argu-
ment and lose a friend. Ask yourself if
this is really something worth fighting
for.
CANCER
(June 21to July 22)
Disputes with bosses, parents and
VIPs could be nasty. Definitely avoid
this if you can. It's just a big power
struggle, and there's a good chance
you'll lose.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
You're very passionate about some
kind of belief (religious or ideological)
today. Resist the urge to make others
agree with you and your way of seeing
things. It's no big deal - not really.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
You might be worried about someone
taking advantage of you or something
you own. Perhaps your values don't
mesh with the values of others. Just live
and let live.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Ego battles with partners and close
friends are likely. Think of what your
true objective is. Don't you want to just
get along and be happy?

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 toNov. 21)
You might be fixated on something
having to do with small pets or some-
thing to do with your health today.
Achieve the results you want, but don't
be pushy.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
This is a classic day for lovers' quar-
rels and high drama between parents and
children. Try not to even go there!
Remain mellow and loving.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Don't get your belly in a rash with
fanily members today. Instead, make
improvements and repairs at home, espe-
cially to bathrooms and plumbing. Take
out the garbage.
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20to Feb. 18)
You have a one-track mind today.
You're practically obsessed with some-
thing. Or maybe you just can't get the
song "I Shot the Sheriff' out of your
mind.
PISCES
(Feb. 19to March 20)
You're obsessed about something
financially, or perhaps even a personal
possession you own. If it's not about
your health or the health of your loved
ones, lighten up. It's just stuff.
YOU BORN TODAY You're coura-
geous and daring. Because you're com-
fortable in your own skin, you do your
job and see it through to the end. You're
very independent and must find some-
thing you love to do. Some of you work
in groups, some of you work alone -
but all of you are warriors. Expect a
major change this year, as significant as
around 1990.
Birthdate of: Steven Seagal, actor;
Michael Pitt, actor; Mandy Moore,
