No more Internet for illegal downloaders

PUMPKIN PARTY

Bowling Green University has started
banning InternetaccesA to students who'
engage in illegal file sharing, the BG
News reported.
Students caught using programs like
Limewire will have their Internet sus-
pended for 24hours for a first violation,
two weeks for a second and a semester
for the third. The policy is in responseto
a notice sent by the Recording Industry
Association of America last year citing
658 detected cases of illegal file sharing.
"That was number 55 in the nation,
number two in the state of Ohio," said
Matt Haschak, director of Bowling
Green's ITS security. "That raised our
awareness of how rampant this was."
THE BLACK CADAVER MARKET
The former director of the cadaver
program at the University of California
at Los Angeles pleaded guilty last week
after being charged with one count of
conspiracy to commit grand theft for
selling body parts to medical and drug
research companies, the Associated

Press reported. The charge included a
special accusation for damaging and
destroying more than $1 million of
school property.
Henry Reid faces a sentence of up to
four years and four months in a state
prison. He will cooperate in the trial of
the co-defendant, Ernest Nelson - the
transporter of the bodies - and will
repay up to $1 million to the University.
Nelson has pleaded not guilty because
he thought he was acting with the Uni-
versity's permission.
UNIVERSITY OF MYSPACE?
A new University built around online
social networks is set to open next year,
the Chronicle of Higher Education said.
P2P University, short for peer-to-
peer, was started by five academics from
around the world. The courseswill cater
to professionals looking to refresh their
knowledge on certain topics and retir-
ees interested in keeping up to date. The
University won't grant credit or seek
accreditation, but it will encourage stu-

dents to pursue this through other col-
legesviaindependents studies.
Students would set up online profiles
similar to those on Facebook, allowing
them to communicate with the volun-
teer professors and other students.
ENDOWMENT EROSION
The University of Maryland's endow-
ment fell 15 percent since the beginning
of the year, the Diamondback reported.
There has also been a slowing of dona-
tions to the University. Only $15 million
in donations has been raised, compared
to $20 million at this time last year.
Brodie Remington, Maryland's fund-
raising overseer, attributes these chang-
es to the economic climate.
Remington said despite the endow-
ment's drop from $420 million to $357
million, he believes. the University's
long-term investments won't suffer.
"You build a little cushion," he said.
"So when you drop, you don't like it, but
it's OK."
