When LSA senior Daniel Lee
returned to the United States
feeling ill after a trip to Italy in
* December, he was rushed to the
hospital where he received a life=
threatening diagnosis - he had
aplastic anemia, a disease that
prevents bone marrow from pro-
ducing red and white blood cells.
Upon hearing news of Lee's
dire need for a bone marrow
transplant, students mobilized to
encourage members of the cam-
pus community to donate mar-
row and raise awareness about
the importance of joining the
National Marrow Donor Regis-
try.

LEGAL DISPUTE
Jenson faces
federal child
porn charges

Almost100 images,
4 videos found in
former UMHS
resident's home
By ADAM RUBENFIRE.
Daily News Editor
Former University of Michi-
gan Health System resident
Stephen Jenson is now facing
federal charges of possessing
and receiving child pornography
via the internet, according to an
affidavit filed yesterday with the
United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Michigan.
The U.S. Secret Service filed
the affidavit, alleging that Jen-
son possessed 97 images and four
videos of "suspected child por-
nography" on electronic devices
seized in a Dec. 2, 2011 search
warrant executed by detectives
from the University's Depart-
ment of Public Safety.
Last May, a medical resi-
dent found a USB thumb drive
plugged into a computer in a

resident's lounge at the Univer-
sity Hospital that contained sus-
pected child pornography and
determined that it was Jenson's.
She later reported her findings
to her supervisor who then noti-
fied the Health System Legal
Office, though DPS was not prop-
erly notified until late November,
according to an internal report
released bythe University on Fri-
day.
Rather than graphical repre-
sentations of child pornography,
the affidavit notes that agents
observed depictions of "real chil-
dren engaged in sexually explicit
conduct."
Jeff Frost, special agent ,in
charge of the U.S. Secret Ser-
vice's Detroit field office, con-
firmed in an interview yesterday
that his office filed the federal
charges.
"We frequently work these
types of investigations with our
partners in the Michigan State
Police and the Internet Crimes
Against Children Task Force

ACADEMIC RESOURCES
Lecture

LectureTools
allows professors
to make class more
interactive
By ZENA DAVE
For the Daily
Since the University launched
of a new version of LectureTools
last fall, professors and students
have found both benefits and
drawbacks from utilizing the
program in the classroom.
LectureTools was created by
Perry Samson, a professor in
the Department of Atmospheric,
Oceanic and Space Sciences, and
is a web-based program that
allows students to access lec-
ture materials on their laptops,
mobile phones and tablets. Pro-
fessors can also form interac-
tive lectures in which students
can ask and answer questions in
real time, and responses can be
displayed once students have fin-
ished an activity.
LectureTools has been rapidly
replacing the use of iClickers in
large University lecture halls as
a more efficient method of track-
ing student participation and
engagement.
"I tried using clickers in class,
and they're pretty good at getting
