artists like Common, A Tribe
Called Quest and Erykah Badu.
OAMI Program Associate Theda
Gibbs said Mos Def's socially con-
scious attitude makes him a good
choice for the symposium.
"He is an artist who definitely
talks about social injustices and is
a very socially conscious artist,"
Gibbs said. "That definitely ties into
the theme because we want people
to be more conscious of the positive
things that are happening, as well
as any problems or injustices."
Engineering freshman Eric
Kuykendall, who plans to attend
the concert, said he likes Mos Def's
"I like that he's not as hard core
as some other rappers," Kuykendall
said. "He raps about real issues."
Jacobson said Mos Def embodies
what is best about hip hop.
"He really represents what is
meaningful and what is good, and
he shines the light on a lot of what
is positive in hip hop," Jacobson
Jacobson said he was impressed
by a previous Mos Def Big Band
concert he attended, where live
instruments and spoken word poet-
ry replaced DJs and turntables.
"It framed hip hop, and it show-
cased the best of what hip hop is,"

hub.com was $4,500 and $3,095
LSA freshman Jamie Keith
waited to list his ticket on face-
book.com until after Saturday's
game against Wisconsin, hoping a
victory would inflate prices.
"I waited until after this week-
end to sell my ticket because I
thought we were definitely going
to beat Wisconsin," Keith said.
"But the loss just kind of messed
up my plans of making money."
Engineering freshman Ian
Hughes said he got the idea to sell
his ticket from one of his friends.
His friend was able to get $550
dollars, but the maximum offer

Court, prosecutor Anthony Kend-
rick mentioned that the deal was
contingent on Schweitzer testify-
ing at Vuljaj's preliminary exami-
nation next week.
Although Schweitzer's sentenc-
ing is Jan. 9, the agreement pro-
vided that he would most likely
receive probation and the charge
would be stricken from his record
once the probation ends.
In court yesterday, Kendrick
asked Schweitzer about his role
in the March 2006 attacks. Sch-
weitzer said he gave Vuljaj a pro-
Hughes received was $250, he
The offer was not what he was
"I was thinkingI was goingtoget
$350, but no one really offered that
much," he said. Hughes ultimately
decided not to sell his ticket.
Keith, though, still plans to sell
his ticket. He said he is willing to
take less than he expected as long
as he makes money.
"I think the base price is $200
but I think I might end up selling it
for $150," he said. "I wanted to sell
the ticket for the money. I can get
more money for the one ticket than
I paid for the entire season."
This year's football student sea-
son tickets cost $194.
Whether he makes as much
money as he is hopes or not, Keith
said one thing is for sure: "If we do
gram that could be used to crash a
website by repeatedly download-

"I provided the software to an
individual knowing what he would
do with it," he said. Kendrick then
asked Schweitzer toname the indi-
vidual. Schweitzer named Vuljaj.
Schweitzer said Vuljaj told him
he was going to use the software
for a denial of service attack on a
website. Schweitzer said he wasn't
present when the attack was

to explain why his computer's IP
address had been used for one of

to laugh at all my friends who told

The state of Michigan has
stricter laws governing the resale
of tickets than Ohio. Last year's
game was in Columbus.
Michigan prohibits sellers from
selling their ticket for more than
face value. Ohio is not among

lins said there would be a private
meeting held after the hearing to
discuss the details of Schweitzer's
account, and Schweitzer didn't

The charges against both Vul-

Mitteer also said there is a need
for better-run hazing task force
programming, which are anti-

"It was an hour of blow-off
because it was run by our peers,"
The president of each of the 27
IFC fraternities votes on the can-

a speech and answers questions.
LSA junior Cole Portney, a

He said an important issue for the
next board to tackle is increasing

UAW workers ratify
historic Ford deal
DETROIT (AP) - Ford Motor
Co. no longer can complain about
being hamstrung by high U.S.
labor costs that prevent it from
making money domestically.
The automaker's hourly work-
ers on yesterday ratified a historic
four-year contract that sets lower
pay for new hires and puts Ford's
huge retiree health care liability
into a trust run by the United Auto
The UAW represents about
54,000 Ford workers, and 79
percent of those voted in favor of
the pact, the union said Wednes-
day. The UAW typically does not
release vote totals.
Workers at General Motors
Corp. and Chrysler LLC already
had ratified similar deals, with
the contract passing at Chrysler
by only a small margin.
The deals, all similar, are
historic because they will he.p

Three and make them more
competitive with Japanese
rivals who build cars in the
U.S., said David Cole, chairman
of the Center for Automotive
Research in Ann Arbor.
"It's just a recognition we're, at
a brave new world. The business
model has changed. The bench-
mark has shifted to the interna-
tional manufacturers," Cole said.
The companies said going into
the talks they have about a $25-
per-hour labor cost gap with Toy-
ota Motor Corp., Honda Motor do.
and Nissan Motor Co.
