In repatriation

of Native
Americans have laid claims.
Speaking before the Senate
Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs, Vice President for
Research Stephen Forrest and
Toni Antonucci, an associate
vice president for research and
chair of the University's Cul-
turally Unidentifiable Human
Remains Committee, described
the University's current efforts
to implement a plan to repatriate
* culturally unidentifiable human
remains and associated funeral-

related objects in the University's
possession.
The two outlined recom-
mendations put forward by the
CUHR Committee and discussed
recent changes to the Universi-
ty's legal obligations, which came
as the result of a court decision
in March over provisions of the
Native American Graves Protec-
tion and Repatriation Act of 1990,
and the progress University offi-
cials have made in adjusting to
the new regulations.
The change requires institu-
tions like the University to alert
Native American tribes that
there is a possibility that "cultur-
ally identifiable" remains found
in the same region as the tribe
may be repatriated to the tribe.
In its report, released publicly
on Sept. 24, the CUHR Commit-
tee recommended that Univer-
sity officials take nine steps to
move forward with its repatria-'
tion work.
Among those recommenda-
tions, the committee said the
University should hire two dedi-
cated employees, one to deal with
requests from Native American
groups for possession of the cul-
turally unidentifiable human
remains, and the other to work
with University museum officials
to better inventory the remains
currently held at the University.

Michigan Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm speaks at the World Stem Cell Summit held at the Marriott Renaissance Center in Detroit yesterday. The summit, which
is being held in Michigan for the first time in its six-year history, started yesterday and will last for three days.

At World Stem Cell
Summit, politicians,
scientists stress
benefits of research
By STEPHANIE STEINBERG
Daily NewsEditor
DETROIT - While the fields of
science and politics often clash on
their views of stem cell research,
leaders from both groups are gath-

ering this week in hopes of bridg-
ing the gap between them.
Nearly 1,200 researchers, law-
makers, businessmen and patient
advocates from 20 countries are
attending the 2010 World Stem
Cell Summit at the Marriott Hotel
in the Detroit Renaissance Cen-
ter. The three-day event kicked
off yesterday with speeches from
University President Mary Sue
Coleman, Michigan State Univer-
sity President Lou Anna K. Simon,
Wayne State Interim President
Allan Gilmour, Democratic Gov.

Jennifer Granholin, Sen. Carl
Levin (D-Mich.) and several lead-
ing researchers at the University.
Bernard Siegel, founder of the
World Stem Cell Summit and
director of the Genetics Policy
Institute - a Florida-based orga-
nization that calls itself "the voice
of the stem cell community" - said
one of the main goals of the sum-
mit is to increase understanding
between scientists and citizens
who find it a "big challenge" to
comprehend scientific presenta-
tions.

"We know that our scientific
colleagues speak in tongues," Sie-
gel said to summit attendees. "It's
hard to understand what they're
saying for someone who might not
be wellversed in stem cell biology."
Granholm began her keynote
address by acknowledging that
not many politicians speak before
groups of scientists. However, she
informed the audience composed
of several hundred research-
ers that she identifies with their
endeavors.

FINANCING YOUR EDUCATION
Duncan: College affordability
crucial to economic recovery

Education Sec. says
Obama made strides
in streamlining
financial aid process
By BETHANYBIRON
Daily StaffReporter
in a conference call with col-
lege journalists yesterday, Unit-
ed States Secretary of Education
Arne Duncan partnered with
MTV's Vice President of Public
Affairs, Jason Rzepka, and Presi-

dent of the College Board, Gaston
Caperton, in a discussion about
the importance of college afford-
ability in increasing graduation
rates and improving the national
economy.
Duncan said that while prog-
ress has been made during the
Obama administration toward
increasing student funding and
simplifying the financial aid
process, there is still much work
to be done in order to fulfill
Obama's goal of being the lead-
ing country globally in college
graduates.
"The President's goal can only

be attained if an unprecedented
number of Americans enroll in
and then complete college, and
for millions of students, paying
for college is the biggest barrier
to completion," Duncan said. "So
one of our most important tasks
is to make college more afford-
able."
Obama increased Pell Grant
funding by $40 billion when he
signed the higher education bill
last May. The increased funding
allowed an additional 2.4 million
students to receive the grant.

Students say classes
at 'U,' experience
helped them cruise
to success
By JORDAN ROCHELSON
For the Daily
Getting home can be a bit of a
challenge after a night of partying,
as can getting up the next morning
to make it down to the stadium in
time for kickoff. But thanks to a
local student-run business, both

have become a little easier for stu-
dents on campus.
Started two summers ago in
Petoskey, Mich., Petoskey Pedicab
first came to Ann Arbor last fall
when Business junior Calvin Sche-
manski and Josh Lycka, a junior
at Grand Valley State University,
decided to take their company on
the road.
Over the past year, the business,
which offers rides in carriages
powered by peddling drivers, has
blossomed - upgrading its fleet
from two pedicabs to three. The
founders attribute the success in
large part to what Schemanski has

learned about running a business
in University classrooms, but also
what the two have gained from
experience.
While the pair continues to
offer seasonal services in Petos-
key, Lycka said they plan to offer
their services exclusively in Ann
Arbor throughout the winter.
Lycka said the company will add
canopies to the pedicabs and offer
blankets to passengers during the
cold months, but he said the roads
might eventually become "too
snowy to work with."
But for now, Lycka isn't worry-
