"We believe that this animal use is
a violation of the Animal Welfare Act

vided false information about alterna-
tive non-animal technologies to justify

Pippin wrote in his complaint to the
Pippin said the University could
easily use cadavers or human body
models as alternatives to live animals.
The University is currently in
possession of a TramaMan System,
one of the best alternative meth-
ods for this type of training, Pip-
pin said. A TramaMan system is an
anatomical human body designed
for students to practice emergency
Pippin is asking the Department
of Agriculture's Animal and Plant
Health Inspection Service to inves-
tigate the matter.
In an interview yesterday, Pippin
did admit that it wouldn't be illegal
to use live animals for this pur-
pose if disclosed properly, but said
he wasn't approaching this from a
"It's not illegal to use animals for
this purpose, but it also is not nec-
essary," he said. "Our appeal to Dr.
Burney all along has not been based
on legal issues, but based on best
Pippin said PCRM began conver-
sations with Burney in Aug. 2006,
encouraging him not to use animals
for ATLS courses. However, he said
Burney has stated consistently that
he wanted to use live animals over
Howard Rush, director of the
unit for laboratory medicine at the
University of Michigan Health Sys-
tem, said UCUCA thought Burney's
recommendation to use animals in
ATLS courses was appropriate, and
so they approved his request.
"There's more than one way to
explanation seemed quite appropri-
ate," he said. "From his perspec-
tive the use of a live animal is much
more realistic and much more like
what a physician would encounter
in an emergency room, compared to
the use of a mannequin."
Rush called the number of ani-
mals used over the course of a year
for Burney's ATLS courses very
small, estimatingthat approximate-
ly 20 animals are used each year.
Despite pressure from Pippin and
the PCRM, Rushsaiditwouldbeleftto
Burney to decide whether to continue
using animals for ATLS courses.
"That wouldn't be a decision that
would be imposed on Dr. Burney by
the University Committee on the
Use and Care of Animals," he said.
"That's a decision he has to make."
A statement released yesterday
by the University's Health System
in response to an article by the
Detroit Free Press refuted several
of Pippin's claims.
"Advanced Trauma Life Support
courses provide highly-specialized
surgeons the training they need to
evaluate and manage patients with
acute life-threatening injuries dur-
ing the first hour after a trauma
incident," the statement said. "The
majority of medical schools teach-
ing ATLS courses use live, anes-
thetized animals because they, like
U-M experts, believe it is essential
for expert training."
Additionally, the statement
called PCRM an animal right's
group, saying it is largely funded
by PETA - People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals - and that
less than 10 percent of its members
According to the University's
statement, the University is in com-
pliance with all state and federal
regulations on humane animal care.
"U-M meets or exceeds the
high standards of humane care for
research animals that are required
under its own rules as well as state
and federal rules," the statement
said. "The University Committee on
Use and Care of Animals, made up
and veterinarians, must approve
and supervise every research proj-
ect that uses animals to make sure
the animals are well cared for and
In the interview yesterday, Pip-
pin said he thinks the University is
on par with its peers with respect
to the training of medical school
students, but said he has concerns
about the ATLS program.
"We certainly don't have a beef
against the University of Michi-
gan," he said. "We think the U-M
has been quite progressive in its
medical student curriculum, but for
this ATLS program, which is indi-
vidual driven ... we would like to
prevail on (Dr. Burney) to open his
mind and look at what's going on
around him and make the change
to use these simulators, which pro-
vide better training."
No jail time for
NEW YORK (AP) - Bernard
Madoff returned to court in a
bulletproof vest yesterday and
won another round in his fight to
stay out of jail. But a larger issue
loomed over the court: negotia-
tions for a potential plea deal.
Bail fights such as this usually
carry motivations that are never
stated on the court record, and the
securities fraud case against Mad-
off appears laden with them.
Experts say prosecutors may
want him in jail to increase pres-
sure on him to cooperate or to
reach a plea deal more quickly.
Or they might want to punish
him for not cooperating enough,
while yielding to public pressure
to make an example out of Mad-
off during the nation's economic
"Like any defendant, a person
who is already in (prison) has
much greater incentive to resolve
it than someone on release who
is looking at a significant term if
convicted," said Michael Garcia,
the U.S. Attorney in Manhat-
tan until days before Madoff's
Madoff has become one of the
most vilified men in America since
he confessed to stealing $50 bil-
lion last month in what may be the
largest Ponzi scheme ever. The
scandal has touched every corner
of the world, wiping out life for-
tunes, decimating charities and
apparently pushing one investor
to commit suicide.
Investors are furious that he
has been allowed to remain on
free on bail.

a member of Students for Social
Equality, said. "We think that it's
very destructive - Hamas's role in
this. We're here in support of the
opposition of the attack and the
occupation, but we also have a per-
spective which may not be the same
as everyone here."
While SAFE was busy making
preparations for the protest, yester-
day, members ofthe pro-Israel com-
munity took part in a "Blue Out" in
order to show support for Israel.
The Union of Progressive Zion-
ists, the American Movement for
Israel and Israel Initiating Dia-
logue, Education and Advocacy,
organized the Blue Out, in which
they encouraged students to wear
blue in support of Israel during this
"difficult time," said LSA junior
Bria Gray, chair of the UPZ.
"What we're promoting is that
everyone wear blue in support of
Israel," Gray said. "We're promot-
so that if someone's noticing you're
wearing a blue shirt, hopefully
you'll be able to share something
about how Israel is not this war-
monger evil country, but a country
that is trying to protect itself the
only way it knows how."
Gray said that while the SAFE
demonstration was not the only
reason they chose Wednesday for
the Blue Out, it was definitely part
of the motivation.
"I think partly we want to react
soon because it broke outcduring the
break," she said. "We have to learn
together to educate ourselves."
and Rachel Goldstein, chair of the
American Movement for Israel said,
however, that the Blue Out was not
intentionally scheduled for the same
day as the SAFE demonstration.
"We do not want to react against
the feelings of other student orga-
nizations, but rather unite the pro-
Israel community," Goldstein said
in an e-mail interview. "Everybody
has a different perspective on the
situation in Gaza, but we can join
together on the idea that Israel has a
right to defend itself in some way."
LSA freshman Jennie Fine, who
recently lived in Israel for a year,
ing an e-mail from AMI, in order to
show her support for Israel.
"The West doesn't understand
what's going on in the Middle East.
They have no idea," Fine said. "It's a
different world over there."
LSAsophomore CraigFoldes said
he wore blue yesterday as a way to
advocate for Israel.
"Israel gets a bad reputation, but
it needs to do whatever it can to
ensure its survival," Foldes said.
Several members of Israel IDEA,
including Kaminsky, showed up at
the demonstration. Kaminsky said
he wasn't pleased with the behav-
ior of some of the protesters.
"You have people waving
Hamas flags. Hamas is a terrorist
organization. It's absolutely outra-
geous that these things can go on,"
Despite the presence of opposi-
tion groups, LSA junior Kamblya
Youseff who was at the event said
she was happy with how the dem-
"I just think it was amazing. It
was very impressive and it showed
a lot about what kind of support this
cause can garner," she said.
Youseff added that the demon-
strators' willingness to brave the
cold is indicative of their support
for the cause.
"If that in itself doesn't tell peo-
ple that something's going wrong in
the world, then I don't know what
will," she said
