After affair, presidency unlikely

Though former CIA director
David Petraeus, a graduate of
Princeton University, previously
expressed interest in replacing
outgoing Princeton President
Shirley Tilghman, his chances
may have been squashed in
light of recent revelations of his
extramarital affair with biogra-
pher Paula Broadwell, the Daily
Princetonian reported.
Bob Callahan, a Princeton
alum and head coach of the
men's squash team, attend-
ed an open forum hosted by
the university's presidential
search committee on Tuesday
and said while he doesn't dis-
like Petreaus, he is unsure of
his future as a leader of the

"It's tragic ... but certainly
Princeton is a world-class insti-
tution, and we only want the
best representation at the presi-
dential level," Callahan said.
On Thursday, 10 universities
announced they will partner to
offer online courses to under-
graduates, The Daily North-
western reported.
The platform, called Semes-
ter Online, will allow students
who attend the universities
involved to take courses online,

while interacting with the pro-
fessor and peers in real time
over video chat, as well as access
course materials and a course
chat room.
Institutions in the part-
nership include, among oth-
ers, Northwestern University,
Washington University in St.
Louis, Emory University, Duke
University and Wake Forest
Northwestern Provost Dan
Linzer said working with other
universities will be better than
a single institution creating a
similar program independent-

At event, students
and faculty share
project experiences
As part of the University's con-
tinued efforts toward promoting
international health initiatives,
students and faculty gathered
on Friday to share their experi-
ences inthe field aspartofGlobal
Health Student Day.
During the event, held in
Palmer Commons, students lis-
tened to presentations focused
on health, disease and initia-
tives to prevent illness, and
heard about opportunities for
public health research abroad.
Students also showcased their
findings from projects conduct-
ed throughout the last year and
engaged with attendees.
The day kicked off with a
keynote address from William
J. Martin, the associate direc-
tor for disease prevention and
health promotion at the Nation-
al Institute of Child Health and
Human Development, which is
part of the National Institutes

of Health. Martin's lecture
focused on global health issues
surrounding chronic respirato-
ry diseases such as asthma and
chronic obstructive pulmonary
Martin began by character-
izing non-communicable dis-
eases - medical conditions
that cannot be transmitted
from person to person - as
one of the main public health
issues worldwide. He also dis-
cussed the asthma epidemic in
the 20th century, noting the
impact nutrition, environment,
trans-generational factors and
birth weight has on the fetal
origins of diseases.
"Prevention of disease may
be possible in the first thou-
sand days, years before it even
begins," Martin said.
He added that the Univer-
sity should oversee its efforts
abroad to maximize success
and make a positive impact,
emphasizing that their com-
mitmentto international health
should be a long-term effort.
"I think the key is for univer-
sities individually to figure out
what their talent sets are, what
they can provide and develop
sustainable relationships with
other universities or centers in
host countries," Martin said.

After Martin concluded his
lecture, the audience asked stu-
dent panelists questions about
their experiences, accom-
plishments and challenges in
working to implement progres-
sive and sustainable change.
The three campus organiza-
tions represented were Global
REACH, the Minority Health
and Health Disparities Inter-
national Research Training
program and Bolivia Interdis-
ciplinary Internship Group.
Following the student pan-
els, a poster session was held to
highlight student and faculty
research conducted overseas.
LSA junior William Rog-
ers, who worked on a project
involving family planning and
fertility in Uganda through
MHIRT, said the experience
changed his outlook on what it
means to be a global citizen.
"I think we live in an
increasingly global world, so to
critically engage with issues of
population is important, given
that many countries are rapidly
increasing with population,"
Rogers said. "There's a ques-
tion of, to what point do we
have too many people, and how
does that impact health ser-
vices, how does it impact food

Public Health graduate stu-
dent Courtney Hanna, who
researched breast cancer in
Morocco last summer, said her
time abroad helped her become
more of a global student. 0
"It definitely made me more
resilient, in terms of being
dropped into a country," Hanna
said. "I had to navigate myself
in the hospitals. The medical
records were all in French and
I didn't speak French, so I had
to learn some to be able to read
the medical records ... This
experience really changed me."
Students at the fair found
the presentations to be very
helpful and insightful, helping
them choose their global health
study abroad plans for the sum-
Business junior Becca Pol
lick found that listening to oth-
ers who have conducted health 4
research abroad is essential to
becoming a more globally inte-
grated student.
"I think we see things in
terms of our own bubble," Pol-
lick said. "It's more of what
we know is only what we see.
There's so much more to that,
especially globally. How are
you going to learn it if it's not
from listening to others who
are knowledgeable about it?"
Saltzman said such action
was taken on July 1, when a
10-percent cut to wages in the
Detroit Police Department
was instituted by the emer-
gency manager.
He added that any new
reforms to the current emer-
gency manager law will still
contain some of the Public Act
4 elements, but will not give
as much power to the man-
ager if it is going to remain in
"The Republicans still have
control of the state legislature
... but they can't pass the same
law that has been rejected by
the voters, but they will try
to have something that gives
more authority to emergency
managers than the old law,"
Saltzman said.

with a more flexible and trans-
parent form of the law.
"My hope is that this time
around, the Republicans will be
more bipartisan about the way
they approach the issue and
allow some of the Democratic
amendments to be successful,"
Irwin said.
Snyder was not available
for comment on the proposal's
failure. However, he said in a
November statement that he
believed the act had the poten-
tial to improve the state's econ-
"This law creates an early
warning system to help com-
munities avoid a financial

emergency, or if they are in
emergency, it empowers an
emergency manager with more
ability to complete their work
so a community can get back on
track faster," Snyder said in the
Adjunct public health lec-
turer Gregory Saltzman, a pro-
fessor of economics at Albion
College, said the proposal's
rejection will have varying
effects on communities across
Michigan, but particularly sig-
nificant effects on those with
emergency managers already in
"People may be a little bit
anxious about whether they'll
be able to meet their financial
obligations and that could cre-
ate economic problems for the
communities in fiscal trouble,"
Saltzman said.

Four cities - Flint, Benton
Harbor, Pontiac and Ecorse
- and the school districts in
Muskegon Heights, Detroit
and Highland Park have
emergency managers. Addi-
tionally, Detroit, Inkster and
River Rouge are under con-
sent agreements, which offer
a financial review team as an
alternative to a manager.
Saltzman noted that under
Public Act 4, the emergency
manager's extended author-
ity allowed quicker and more
extensive reform.
"(Public Act 4) allowed
emergency managers to have
the authority to not follow
the collective bargaining
process for public employees
anymore ... allowing the emer-
gency manager to unilater-
ally change wages," Saltzman
