So you don't have a clue what you're going to do after college.
That's not as much as a problem as not knowing how to
finance it. Have you even heard of a Roth IRA? Kathryn Greiner,
director of credit education at the University of Michigan
Credit Union, gives a primer on your future finances.

can be beneficial long before you have children to
survive you. Burial policies available for as little as
$10 a month will make sure your loved ones won't
have to cover your premature funeral.
This bear is definitely law-
- DANNY PERKINS, a sheriff in Garfield
County, Utah, on a big black bear that dis-
rupted a covert marijuana farm enough times
to drive the grower off his property. After
the grower left, deputies found on the camp-
ground remnants of food containers that
had been mauled and an assortment of cans
indented with bear claw marks
"Our national leaders are
sending them out on a
task that is from God."
- SARAH PALIN, governor of Alaska and Sen.
John McCain's running mate, referring to the Iraq
War in a speech last June to ministry students
at Wasilla Assembly of God, her former church.
She also said that building a $30 billion natural
gas pipeline in Alaska was "God's will"
It's worth it to open a savings account with only a
few thousand dollars. While the interest it earns
initially won't be much, keeping all your money in
a checking account earns nothing. Ideally, you'll
have three savings plans: an expensive fun fund,
an emergency fund an a retirement fund. The first
account goes toward big purchases - a car or a
vacation - that you would be tempted to use a credit
card for. The second is in case a bout of misfortune
- an accident or a payment dispute - leaves you
temporarily unable to cover regular life expenses
like rent and bills. Make it a goal to put away money
every month until you have at least a month's worth
of rent squirreled away. .
Three things you can talk about this week:
1. Rachel Maddow
2. NATO membership for Georgia and Ukraine
3. Salvia (See Page 4A)
And three things you can't:
1. Sarah Palin rumors
2. David Duchovny's sex
3. The League's limited

You probably won't
be alive to watch this
If you're reading this, everything
turned out all right - at least for now.
Scientists at CERN, the European
Organization for Nuclear Research,
planned to turn on the organization's
new Large Hadron Collider at 3:30
EDT this morning. The $8-billion
device, located in a 17-mile-long ring
of tunnels beneath Switzerland and
France, aims to speed up protons to
the fastest speed ever accomplished
and smash them together, perhaps
revealing tantalizing secrets of sub-
Some critics have suggested the
device could create a black hole,
destroying Earth and killing all man-
kind. Scientists have tried to assuage
fears of a manmade armageddon, but
until the LHC's beams first smash
together a couple weeks from now, no
one will really know for sure.
But if you're going to be sucked
into a singularity, you should at least
kno wwhy, right? So watch this video,
called the "Large Hadron Rap,"
which explains why scientists have
spent billions of dollars and more
than a decade developing a machine
that might annihilate everything we
But then again, if the world actu-
ally did end at 3:30 this morning, you
aren't reading this, which means it's
totally all right if I curse. Fuck. °

See this and other
YouTube videos ofthe week at
"OH, SWEET, SWEET LIFE" party - When (if)
you wake up this morning, celebrate the fact you're
still alive. A European apocalypse machine called
the Large Hadron Collider was scheduled to simu-
late the Big Bang last night, creating a black hole
somewhere in Switzerland and killing us all. But if
you're reading this, that means the Earth wasn't
destroyed. And that, frankly, is something to drink
Throwing this party? Let us know. TheStatement@umich.edu
STUDY OF THE WEEK
Female smokers more at risk than male smokers
Women who smoke experience heart attacks more than a dozen years
before women who don't, while for men the difference is only about 6
years, according to a study that was presented by Norwegian doctors
from the Innlandet Hospital Trust in Lillehammer.
,The researchers used data collected from1,784 patients who had been
admitted to the Norwegian hospital for their first heart attack.
According to the study, men who didn't smoke had their first heart
attack when they were about 72, while those who did smoke experi-
enced an attack at about age 64. On average, women who didn't smoke
experienced their first heart attack at age 81. But those who did had an
attack when they were about 66.
One of the researchers, Dr. Morten Grundtvig, speculated that smok-
ing might cause women to experience menopause earlier, which would
mean a halt in the production of estrogen that doctors think protect
women against heart ailments.
