Week-long visit
aims to establish
partnerships
By PAIGE PEARCY
Daily NewsEditor
0 While summer vacation now
seems like a distant memory for
students starting classes Tues-
day, University President Mary
Sue Coleman will commence a
vacation of her own in just a few
weeks.
On Sept. 22, Coleman -
accompanied by a delegation of
six faculty members and Mark
Tessler, the University's vice
provost forinternational affairs
- will embark on a week-long
trip to Brazil. The group will
travel to four cities - Sao Paulo,
Campinas, Rio de Janeiro and
Brasilia - and meet with aca-
demic and government offi-
cials.
"We have partnered with
Brazil for many years and wit-
nessed one of the most inter-
esting revolutions in higher
education," Coleman said in a
press release. "Brazil is not only
an emerging economy, it is an
r emerging power in research."

Associate History Prof.
Sueann Caulfield and Michele
Heisler, an associate profes-
sor of internal medicine, wrote
the proposal for the trip in the
spring of 2011 and are both
accompanying Coleman to Bra-
zil. Caulfield said the idea to
travel to the country came from
realizing the number of collab-
orative ventures the University
has established in Brazil.
"We realized that across
various areas we really have a
great deal of activity already
taking place in Brazil, but very
not connected to one another,"
Caulfield said "This is really the
first time that we have made
the connection."
Coleman has previously
traveled to China, Ghana and
South Africa on behalf of the
University. While in Brazil,
Coleman will formalize agree-
ments for collaborations with
various programs at the Uni-
versity and planning others,
including a theater program
and a joint project with the
medical school.
"Really great things hap-
pened after her trip to China
and after her trip to Africa, so
we're also really looking for-

Obama: Higher ed. key Biden critiques GOP
to economic recovery ticket in brash speech

By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily News Editor
TOLEDO, Ohio - In a Labor
Day address held before a crowd
of about 3,100, President Barack
Obama compared Republican
presidential candidate Mitt
Romney to a football coach with
a plan "for a losing season" in
areas of education and industry.

Before an audience largely
comprised of union workers,
Obama stressed the economic
importance of receiving a col-
lege education, while showing
his support for unions and dis-
cussing the imposHce of job
creation. During his address at
Scott High School here, he con-
ceded his frustration with the

DETROIT - On a warm
Labor Day in the shadows of
skyscrapers, Vice President Joe
Biden spoke to thousands of
union supporters here Monday,
addressing the concerns of a city
defined by organized labor and
the auto industry.

Biden spent most of the
speech critiquing Republican
presidential nominee Mitt Rom-
ney, a Michigan native, and
his running mate, Paul Ryan.
Biden described Romney - who
wrote a piece for The New York
Times in 2008, famously titled
"Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" - as
indifferent to the working class

DailySportsEditor Countess suffered the injury
justfour minutes into the game
if the Michigan football while covering Michigan's punt
41-14, season-opening after the offense's first drive of
o Alabama on Saturday the game stalled. As the gun-

ner on the punt team, Countess
was knocked down hard by his
Crimson Tide counterpart and
landed awkwardly on his knee.
Countess had to be helped off
the field and used crutches to
enter the locker room after the
game ended.
"You hate to see (when) any-
body gets hurt," Michigan coach
Brady Hoke said on Monday,
reporting that the cornerback

will likely undergo surgery
within the next two weeks.
After he started the last six
games of the season last year
as a true freshman, totaling 44
tackles and six pass break-ups,
Countess seemed primed for a
breakout season in 2012. That
breakout will have to wait until
next year, when the Owings
Mills, Md. native will return
after taking a medical redshirt.

It's a big blow for the Michi-
gan defense, which loses an up-
and-comer at one of the most
important positions on the field.
But Hoke expressed confidence
that the rest of the cornerbacks
will be able to pick up the slack.
Junior Courtney Avery, nor-
mally the nickelback, will move
into the starting lineup opposite
fifth-year senior J.T. Floyd.

CAMPUS COMMUNITY
GOP shows

Gayz Craze
College
Republicans attend
annual event for
first time
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily Staff Reporter
LSA senior Jared Boot, a mem-
ber of the University's chapter of
College Republicans and chair
of Students for Romney at the
University, represents a seem-
ingly small and, as he says, often
misunderstood demographic on
campus - he is a gay Republican.
On a campus where a majority
of students identify as liberal and
many support gay rights, the con-
flict between his sexual orienta-
tion and political ideology is one
Boot often has to explain. Hoping
to dispel the notion among stu-
dents that members of the Col-
lege Republicans do not respect
gay rights, Boot and other group
members attended Gayz Craze
on Monday, an annual event
hosted by the LGBT Issues Com-
mission of Central Student Gov-
ernment.
Though the gesture was notan
endorsement of gay rights by the
group - which does not officially
back any position or candidate
- members called the appear-
ance an important step toward
welcoming gay students to their
