Lending a helping e-hand

Many .studentsuse Wikipedia as a
resource for classes, essay and other aca-
demic pursuits. But several University stu-
dents have taken their Wikipedia use one
step further.
This past fall, Rackham student Cher-
yl Moy started U-M Wikipedians - the
first Wikipedia student club in the United
States, according to the Wikimedia Foun-
dation website.
The club, which began as a project in
one of Moy's chemistry classes, garnered
the attention of the Wikimedia Founda-
tion, the non-profit organization respon-
sible for various "Wiki" sites including
Wikipedia, Wikionary and Wikinote.
The club's two dozen members update
Wikipediapages rangingfromscience pol-
icy articles to pages about the University.
The group's. members scours Wikipedia
for errors, omissions and poorly written

LSA sophomore Charles Zhou, a mem-
ber of U-M Wikipedians, said he has con-
tributed to Wikipedia articles on topics
including University camupus tours and
obscure dung beetles. According to Moy,
the group has also created ten new articles.
Though Zhou said he is not sure how
many articles he has contributed to, he
said he's made at least 200 edits since high
Senior Wikipedians like Zhou help
guide club members with less experience
and explain how to navigate the website
and make contributions.Y
In the fall, the group hosted a talk by
Frank Schulenburg, head of public out-.

who gave a presentation about the orga- COURTESTY OF CHARLES ZHOU

Indonesia religious minority
falls victim to violent attacks

Three killed, six
wounded in attack
on worshippers
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP)
Indonesia's president ordered
an investigation into an attack
onrinembsiof a minority 'Mus-
lihnsect after a gruesome video
emerged of a mob beating several
victims to death with machetes,
sticks and rocks.
About 1,500 people stormed
a house in Banten province over
the weekend to stop 20 Ahmadi-
yah followers from worship-
ping. They killed three men and
badly wounded six others, while
destroying the house and setting
fire to several cars and motor-

Rights group said Tuesday
a 2008 decree that bans reli-
gious activities of Ahmadiyah,
thought to have 200,000 follow-

should be immediately revoked.

The latest attacks on Ahmadi-
yah - which drew rare con-
demnation from President
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono -
were captured on video and have
circulated widely on national
television and the Internet.
The most disturbing clip, post-
ed on YouTube, showed assail-
ants repeatedly pounding two
victims - who had been stripped
naked and appeared to be dead -
with heavy sticks.
A policeman came to the
scene but his screams of "stop"
were almost inaudible among
dozens who shouted "Allahu

Akbar" or God is Great.
The Ahmadiyah are consid-
ered deviant by many Muslims
and are banned in many Islamic
countries because they believe
that Muhammad was not the
final prophet.
"I have ordered a comprehen-
sive investigation to find out the
real cause of the incident so that
those guilty, or violating the law,
can be penalized," Yudhoyono
told a news conference.
He also called on security
forces as well as local govern-
ments to be proactive in taking
action against the instigators of
such violence.
"Don't wait until the conflicts
and clashes have already hap-
pened," Yudhoyono said.
Many attacks on religious
minorities in recent years have
been carried out by members of
the hardline Islamic Defenders
Front, known also for smashing
bars and attacking transvestites
and anyone one else considered
"blasphemous" with bamboo
clubs and stones.

several business groups.
Though Arnett retired from
the Business School in 2001, his
legacy of being a fun and good-
hearted educator will continue,
Danos wrote.
"He was what they might
call now 'old school' and I, as a

Haughee wrote in an e-mail
to The Michigan Daily last
-night that the University will
not release specifics of the situ-
ation "because of the confiden-
tial nature of the complaint."
"The University of Michigan
considers the safety and well-
being of students as extremely
important, and hazing activi-
ties that compromise a student's
safety and health are not toler-
ated," Haughee wrote.
Haughee's e-mail to IFC and

Arnett's warm personality be
greatly missed, but also his intel-

"He was passionate about
accounting theory and would
argue points about the underly-
ing meaning of a concept, say
owners' equity, that even I, who
pretended to be a fellow theorist,
could not always follow at first,"
Danos wrote.
Arnett's family will hold a
memorial reception in his name
on Sunday, Feb.13, from 2-4 p.m.
at the Ann Arbor City Club.

the press release.

afterthe Cease and Desist Order
was issued.
"There were additional com-
munications between the chap-
ter and the national fraternityin
which the chapter admitted to
having hazing activities in their
pledge program," Haughee
wrote in the e-mail to the Greek
Life organizations.
The University is currently
conducting its own investiga-
tion, Haughee wrote in the
e-mail to the Daily.
"At this moment, no specific
decisions have been made about
steps the University may take
in the future," Haughee wrote.
"The University will work
closely with SAE International
to take appropriate action in
response to this matter."
LSA junior Andrew Silver,
president of the University's
chapter of SAE, declined to
comment for the time being,
writing in an e-mail that he
would like to wait to give an
interview until after further
workingwith the national chap-
ter of the fraternity.
