Retired faculty members
from the University of North
Carolina are telling UNC
officials they are willing
to return to the school and
teach courses without any
compensation, The Daily Tar
Heel reported in an article
last week.
According to The Daily Tar
Heel, the UNC Retired Faculty
Association approved a reso-
lution to offer their services
free of charge in order to help
minimize the impact of budget
cuts on students.
Some faculty are skepti-
cal of the proposal, includ-
ing Joe Templeton, chairman,
of the faculty. Templeton
told The Daily Tar Heel that
UNC guidelines would need
to be reviewed first to see if
the retired faculty would be
allowed to return to their pre-
viously held positions.

YALE UNIVERSITY TO
FIRE UP TO 300 STAFF
TheYale Daily Newsreport-
ed that Yale University may lay
off as many as 300 employees
in an effort to cope with the
current economic situation.
Officials at Yale told the'
Yale Daily News they are
planning to double severance
benefits for all employees let
go, which would provide two
weeks of full pay for each year
of service to the university up
to 26 years.
Yale still expects a $100 mil-
lion budget deficit expected for
the 2010 fiscal year, according
to the Yale Daily News.
WISCONSIN DOCTOR
TAKES FIRE ON LARGE
ROYALTY PAYMENTS
Dr.ThomasA.Zdeblick,chair-
man ofthe University ofWiscon-
sin'sDepartmentofOrthopedics,

has come under heavy criticism
when it was reported recently
thathe collected $19.4 million in
third party payments from 2003
to 2004.
The report by The Chroni-
cle of Higher Education cites
the figures, which outline the
payments Zdeblick received
from Medtronic - a medi-
cal company that supplies the
spinal implants that Zdeblick
invented.
Many critics, including Sen.
Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa),
admit there is not definitive
evidence of any wrongdoing
on Zdeblick's part, but say the
shortage of evidence on either
side is part of the problem,
according to the Chronicle.
Medtronic told the Chronicle
the payments were legitimate r
royalty payments on inventions
belonging to Zdeblick. SDT Waste and
