said. "I was lucky, but if I was going
to class I would have been late."
Cary Tedder, a senior in the
School of Music, Theatre and Y".r
Dance, witnessed the chaotic after-
math of the water main break on
Murfin Avenue around 12:30 p.m.
after he got out of class. ,,
"Water was running all the way
down Murfin," Tedder said. "It
was gushing and there were tons of
police cars in the street. Now all of
the bus routes are longer and more
complicated."
DPS spokeswoman Diane Brown
said Plant Operations has been5 r
working to repair the main since
it broke yesterday. She said she
expects the main to be fixed some-
time today at the earliest.
Brown added that the break
has been isolated, and there's no
impact on the water service to
any of the surrounding buildings.

allow for new research on chemo-

drugs limit bone marrow function,
leaving the body vulnerable to
infection. The artificial bone mar-

more effectively, Kotov said.
"More thorough and less expen-

that some dangerous side effects
can be caught in time," he said in
an e-mail interview. "This is much
needed both for patients and phar-
downturn," she said.
When asked about some critics'
argument that Michigan's current
problems arise from its homoge-
neity and almost single-minded
focus on the automotive and relat-
ed industries, Granholm stressed
the importance of diversifying
the Michigan economy as much as
possible.
"We want to put people back to
work today, but at the same time
we need to make the necessary

Currently the artificial bone
marrow can't be transplanted
into humans, but with continued
research,bone marrowtransplants

"It took all ofus together, and we
failed a lot in the first three to four
years of our work together, but we
always banded together and tried
again," she said.
Kotov said the development is
notonlyan achievementinbiomed-
ical research, but it will also help to
revitalize the state's economy.
"We are trying to re-energize
the biotechnology sector of econo-
my in Michigan and to bring new
ideas to the industry in the diffi-
cult economic times," he said.
"The package should include
funding to ready-to-go infrastruc-
ture projects such as roads, water,
sewer and Great Lakes restoration
and navigation," he wrote in the
statement."
He wrote that funding should
go toward producing alternative
energy, keeping people in their
homes and education and health
information technologies.
In its current form, the House
bill includes $54 billion for the
development of green energy
from renewable resources and
$90 billion for nationwide infra-
structure upgrades.
Additionally, Levin wrote that
he hopes the package will provide
"direct assistance to states so that
they don't have to make signifi-
cant cuts in state programs."
He also wrote about bring-
ing manufacturing jobs back
to Michigan and the industrial
Midwest as a whole, saying that
such jobs are the linchpin of the
regional economy.
Levinwrote thatthis shiftmust
occur with the help of "federal
grants to spur the development
and manufacturing of advanced
batteries that will power the next
generation of green technology
vehicles."
With the stimulus bills pend-
ing approval in both the U.S.
House and the Senate, the state's
lawmakers are still waiting to
make their requests for fund-
ing on a broad range of proj-
eets. Exactly how that money
is allocated will be determined
in the coming months, but both
Granholm and Levin expressed
optimism about the future of
the states economy.
"If we spend money inthe right
places, we can put people to work
immediately," Levin wrote.
ISRAEL RALLY
From Page 1
about 1,100 Palestinians and 13
Israelis have died in the conflict.
"Israel asa state will continue
to exist forever," Parritz said, to
a chorus of cheers and applause
from the crowd. "Any person
people or governmentwho wish-
es to extinguish this reality will
surely do so at their own peril."
Following Parritz's speech,
students led the crowd in the
song "Am Yisrael Chai," or "The
Nation of Israel Lives."
The rally concluded with the
crowd singing the Israeli nation-
al anthem. LSA freshman Alex
Kaminski said he was "touched"
by the rally.
"Israel has been at the cen-
ter of a lot of negative press and
false accusations," he said. "It
drives me up the wall."
Kaminsky said that he was
pleased with the turnout at the

rally, despite the below-zero
weather.
"It really shows how passion-
ate people are and how much
they care about the civilians
whose lives have been affected
for two or three years," he said.
Business School sophomore
Adam Keitt said it was "nice to
see" that both the pro-Palestin-
ian rally at the Union last night
and the pro-Israel rally both
concluded peacefully.
