complaints against a North Caro
college that recently stopped
coverage of birth control througl
faculty health insurance policy,
Gaston Gazette reported.

abortion and sterilization bel
it was brought to the attentior
administrators, who removed

the teachings of the Cath
Church. Belmont Abbey is a Cat
Benedictine college.

its annual day of drinking known
as Unofficial St. Patrick's Day, the
Chicago Tribune reported.
The day was created by local bars
and this year will be held on a Friday.
During last year's day of drinking,
there were 149 alcohol citations
given.
Champaign mayor Jerry
Schweighart is interested in stricter
rules to prevent underage drinking.
But he said bars shouldn'tbe required
to close early, as it might lead to "beer
riots."
BERKELEY OF THE MIDDLE EAST
The University of California at
Berkeley is negotiating a partnership
with the King Abdullah University
of Science and Technology, a Saudi
Arabian university, the San Jose
Mercury News reported.
The schools would collaborate on
research and the hiring of faculty.
Berkeley refuses to disclose any
details about the negotiations,
claiming it would jeopardize contact
between the schools.
Some Berkeley faculty members
are concerned about the partnership

because other Saudi Arabian
universities have historically
practiced discrimination based on
gender and religion.-
FACULTY UNION ELIMINATED
Faculty at Michigan Technological
University voted last week to get rid
of their chapter of the American
Association of University Professors
union, the Chronicle of Higher
Education reported.
The final vote was 143 to 136.
Opponents of the union said they
believe a University Senate is more
beneficial to faculty, and that a union
only distracts faculty from their
other responsibilities.- I
Supporters said they think the
AAUP gives a stronger voice to
faculty members.
The AAUP was initiated at
Michigan Tech in September 2004
with a 152 to 134 vote.
Two decertification petitions
disrupted contract negotiations
since they began in 2005.
The union must wait a year before
it can try to be recertified.
