The Americans are the first
people to be arrested since the Jan

The government and estab-

than ever to being seized and sold.

Participants will be asked to complete two surveys, one at enrolment and one in Spring
2010. Participants are also asked to report any fiu-like respiratory illness. Ill persons will

" You live in one of the following residence halls: Alice Lloyd, Stockwell, Markley,
Mosher-Jordan, or Couzens

each survey they complete. Participants will receive $10 for permitting collection of a
throat swab if they have a flu-like illness, and $20 for permitting collection of a blood
