Pi Kappa Alpha
condemns campus
chapter for party
invitation
By AARON GUGGENHEIM
Daily StaffReporter
The national chapter ofPi
Kappa Alpha Fraternity, com-
monly known as Pike, has issued
an interim suspension to their
Beta Tau Chapter at the Uni-
versity following controversy
stemming from the rapid online
spread of semi-nude photos of
its members.
The photos, which featured
members mostly naked with
American flags, were attached
to an e-mail that was sent as a
party invitation to members of
the Alpha Phi sorority this past
Friday.
The e-mail with the pho-
tos stated that Pike members
"paddle pledges because it is
a comprehensive upper body
workout" and that any sorority
member who considered her-
self a "red-blooded, God fearing
American girl who has a spe-
cific spring time gym routine
to accommodate her summer-

time jean shorts" should attend
a party.
Justin Buck, executive
vice president of the national
Pike organization, released
a statement on the organiza-
tion's website condemning
the actions of the University's
chapter, stating that they were
"in violation of Fraternity
Standards."
"Countless undergraduate
and alumni members through-
out our organization have con-
tacted the office voicing their
displeasure," Buck wrote. "The
Fraternity is taking this situa-
tion very seriously."
Buck added that the national
chapter was working with the
Interfraternity Council, the
governing body for fraternities
at the University, to "imple-
ment appropriate punitive and
educational conditions for the
chapter."
The IFC met Monday night to
begin discussing what actions,
if any, to take against the fra-
ternity, University spokesman
Rick Fitzgerald said. No mem-
bers of the IFC or the Beta
Tau Chapter of Pike could be
reached for comment Tuesday
evening.

Foundation awards
$50K grants to
three professors
By RACHEL PREMACK
Daily StaffReporter
Three University faculty mem-
bers are recipients of the 2013
Sloan Research Fellowships, a
$50,000 research grant present-
ed to early-career researchers.
Assistant Biology Prof. Sara
Aton, Assistant Ecology Prof.
Gregory Dick and Assistant
Chemistry Prof. Stephen Maldo-
nado are three of 126 promising
investigators to receive fellow-
ship. In the last three years, six
University researchers received
SRFs, which is issued by the
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation,
which gives grants to institutions
focused on science, technology
and economics.
Aton - who graduated from
the University in 2001 with a
Bachelor of Science degree and
set up her lab in July 2012 -
expressed her gratitude to be
included with future Nobel lau-

reates. She will use the fellow-
ship, to continue investigating
what she called the "unsolved
mystery of biology."
Aton's lab analyzes two
aspects of memory and sleep:
consolidation - where informa-
tion is encoded into long-term
memory storage - and how neu-
rons in the visual cortex change
after the organism has seen
something new.
"When you're asleep, you're
not looking for food, you're not
looking for mates and you're not
reproducing," Aton said. "So,
from an evolutionary standpoint,
you would think it would not be
selected again unless it was serv-
ing them a very, very important
role that we don't understand
yet."
Most sleep studies involve
sleep deprivation. Uniquely,
Aton's lab studies sleep by turn-
ing on and off certain neurons
and analyzing how those tweaks
affect consolidation.
For Dick, the grant will sup-
port ongoing research in deep-
sea hydrothermal vents. He said
some vents include plumes that

'Twelth Night' at
Power Center
By GRACE PROSNIEWSKI
For the Daily
One word: Shakespeare.Undis-
putedly one of the greatest liter-
ary and cultural influences of all
time, his works have enthralled
artists, scholars and, most impor-
tantly, audiences, for centuries.
But Shakespearean works often
seem to exist in a type of contra-
dictory space. On one hand, they
can be utterly intimidating, with
"thees" and "thous," the com-
plex soliloquies and the failed
ninth-grade English exams. On
the other hand, there's been a
very real movement, spearheaded
by publications such as No Fear
Shakespeare, to make the works
"accessible" to new generations.
The challenge then, for current
Shakespearean companies, is to
work within the original text to
facilitate and maintain a modern
audience's interest.

Energy bonds,
sustainability also
discussed
By MATTHEW JACKONEN
Daily StaffReporter
The Ann Arbor City Council
decided at its meeting Tuesday
night to postpone a decision on

whether to set a moratorium
on development in the D1/D2
zoning area.
A moratorium would squash
plans to develop a high-rise
at 413 E. Huron, which were
not endorsed by the Planning
Commission when it voted ear-
lier this month.
Pat Lennon, an attorney for
the project's developer, said he
believes City Council. was too

hasty in approving the morato-
rium.
'We are understandably frus-
trated by this," Lennon said.
"We're concerned that a
motion ... would come up with
such short notice and appar-
ently little discussion," he
added.

tary, Jeffery Crockett, an Ann
