universities in attaching such an
accord to apparel licensing agree-
ments, including Brown Univer-
sity, Columbia University and
Cornell University.
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said companies have
until May i6 to sign the accord
or they will no longer be allowed
to produce University-licensed
products. Adidas, one of the
University's main licensees, has
already signed the agreement, but
Collegiate Licensing - an Ameri-
can collegiate trademark licens-
ing and marketing company that
manufactures University apparel
- hasyet to sign.
Fitzgerald said acceptance of
the accord was motivated by the
need to improve worker safety.
"This is specifically about
worker safety standards,"
Fitzgerald said. "This isn't about
what companies any one compa-
ny may be investing with. This is
specifically aimed at making sure
there are safe working conditions
for fire safety for any of the manu-
facturing facilities where U of
M-licensed products are made."

chair of MUSIC Matters' com-
munications committee, said
Mensa's Chicago roots also
played a big role in his selection
as an opening act.
"We're really excited and
we're really lucky to have signed
him this early," Marx said.
"There's a lot of great music
coming out of Chicago right now
and he's easily one of the better
ones."
The concert will also include
two local openers: rap duo Pin-
nacle Entertainment and hip-
hop group Video7.
Pinnacle Entertainment fea-
tures Keyon Purite and Ann
Arbor resident Xzanthus Al-
lateef.
Video7 is comprised of sev-
eral University students and
alums, including Music, Theatre
& Dance senior Brendan Asante.
According to MUSIC Matters,
"Video7 is a multi-media collec-
tive of producers, singers, visual
artists, screen writers, directors
and more ... (who aim) to provide
unique performance experienc-
es for their viewers and listeners

that are 'the furthest from main
stream."'
Marx said signing local acts
to perform at the concert is one
of the best parts of MUSIC Mat-
ters.
"There is so much talent on
this campus," she said. "The
fact that we are able to provide a
stage for students and local acts
to open up for a huge name like
2Chainz is one of the greatest
things that we are able to do."
Aside from their finalized
concert lineup, MUSIC Matters
has also hired numerous artists
and speakers to perform during
the day's SpringFest activities.
Folk-rock band Grizfolk,
which recently finished a tour
opening for Bastille, will head-
line the live performances. In
addition, Ann Arbor native Dan
Henig - known by many for his
YouTube-famous acoustic cover
of Lil Jon's "Get Low," which has
amassed over five million views
- and LSA sophomore Sylvia
Yacoub, who was a top 10 finalist
on the third season of NBC's The
Voice, will make appearances.
"It also attracts a different
audience than we're trying to
attract with 2 Chainz," he said.
"We're trying to accommodate
for a lot of different audiences

here on campus, because not
everyone's into hip-hop."
Live performances will not
be restricted to music - MUSIC
Matters has also scheduled
numerous speakers who will
deliver remarks akin to TED
Talks throughout the day.
One of these highlighted
presenters will be Mike Muse,
who was a member of President
Barack Obama's 2012 National
Finance Committee and the co-
founder of Muse Recordings.
MUSIC Matters has also con-
firmed that it will host 150 high
school juniors from the metro
Detroit area to tour the Uni-
versity, attend admissions and
financial aid workshops, eat in
the dorms and participate in
SpringFest.
The student organization
has worked in tandem with the
National Pan-Hellenic Council,
the Center for Educational Out-
reach, the Office of Financial
Aid and the Office of Under-
graduate Admissions to achieve
this goal.
LSA junior Maysie Makri-
anes, one of the SpringFest
team's high school outreach co-
directors, said bringing these
students to the University will
promote college accessibility.

She added that this type of
outreach feeds into the Big
Thinkers Scholarship that
MUSIC Matters unveiled in
November.
"Our main goal is to expose
students to the college experi-
ence when they're young," she
said.
During SpringFest, speeches
and musical acts will occur in
conjunction with one another
along North University Avenue,
with stages on opposite ends of
the partitioned stretch of road.
Business junior Nick
Moeller, chair of MUSIC Mat-
ters' SpringFest committee,
said clubs contributing to the
event will still be grouped by
common themes: innovation,
art, social justice, identity and
sustainability.
These will be spread from
the steps of Hatcher Graduate
Library up to North University
Avenue, where food trucks and
the live performance stages will
run perpendicularly along the
street.
"As far as I know, I think this
is one of the largest events under
student production, under a stu-
dent organization, that I think
the University has had," Moeller
said.

BROWN

hard for women's rights, access
to quality health care and mak-
ing education affordable, and
has demonstrated the deep
desire to provide equal opportu-
nity for all. Though the decision
to hand out marriage licenses
to same-sex couples received
some negative media attention,
he said he does not think it will
hinder her campaign prospects.
"I'm certain that that deci-
sion that she made reinforced
the ideology that equal rights
for every Michigander is impor-
tant to her and solidified it fur-
ther," Zemke said.
Though he thinks Schauer
made the decision to select
Brown before the court's ruling
on the ban, Irwin said her reac-
tion further proved her qualifi-
cations as a running mate.
"Schauer already is obvious-
ly the candidate who supports
marriage equality. Snyder is the
candidate who decidedly does
not," he said. "Schauer needs no
more credibility on that issue,
Snyder has given him all the
credibility he needs."

MINOR

very different types of students
in each class," Levitsky wrote in
an e-mail. "But in fact the opposite
happened: the same students kept
showingup to both classes."
To answer for students' growing
interests in both types of classes,
department faculty and adminis-
trators agreed to offer a new minor
that would explore concepts of legal
and social significance.
"Anyone with an interest in law,
policy, criminal justice, social and
economic justice, social move-

ments, human rights, inequality,
and social change will find an intel-
lectual home in this minor," Lev-
itsky wrote.
She added that she hopes the
minor will promote a community of
students and professors interested
in these fields as well as a form of
certification for students that will
allow them to demonstrate their
dedication to legal andsocialissues.
Nicole Rutherford, undergradu-
ate program coordinator for the
sociology department, said the new
minor will teach students a vari-
ety of skills that can be applied to a
future career.
"I think, just as any student in
any liberal arts degree program,

they're going to walk away with
kind of a more global perspective on
issues of social change," Rutherford
said. "They're going to walk away
with writing skills like you do in
any liberal arts class as well as some
strong analytical and critical think-
ing skills."
Although sociology majors are
welcome to pursue the Law, Jus-
tice and Social Change minor,
Rutherford said the same classes
that are offered through the minor
are already available to them. She
noted the minor could potentially
compliment all types of majors,
especially those related to the
social sciences.
"I think all majors, there's some-

thing in this for them if they're
interested in complimenting it with
a focus in law and social change,"
Rutherford said.
Levitsky also said she hopes
the minor will bring attention to
the prowess of the University's
Department of Sociology.
"This is one of the top-ranked
sociology departments in the
country," Levitsky wrote. "We
have some of the best teachers in
the College. Once students fig-
ure that out, once they get a taste
of these classes, they're not just
going to want to minor in Law
Justice and Social Change, they're
going to want to major in sociol-
ogy."

SPACE

planetary defense.
"The basic idea is to do
things that make sense in and
of themselves and to use those
to develop the technology and
the capabilities that we need for
space settlement," he said.
Globus focused much of his
lecture on sub-orbital tour-
ism. Citing a survey, he said
many Americans would pay
around $100,000 to go to space.
There are currently a number of
American companies working

to pioneer space tourism. Vir-
gin Galactic, founded in 2004,
already has 600 customers and
$80 million in deposits. Although
a commercial spaceflight has yet
to take off, a seat on the spaceship
is currently $250,000.
Engineering senior Derek
Napierala, SEDS president, said
he hopes he lives to see space
settlement.
"I think space is where every-
one shouldwantto go," Napierala
said. "It gives us a lot of opportu-
nity to develop new technologies.
It's such a cool place and there's
so much out there that we can
discover that if we can we should
try."

Kerry calls on Israeli and
Palestinian officials to "lead"

Aftershocks rattle Chile as
military enforces the law

Delegation attempts
to prevent peace
negotiations from
collapsing
RABAT, Morocco (AP)
- Frustrated by a virtually
moribund Israeli-Palestinian
peace process, U.S. Secretary
of State John Kerry exhorted
leaders on both sides Thursday
to "lead" and to do so now to
preyent the negotiations from
collapsing.
In Algeria for strategic
security talks after traveling to
the Mideast twice in the past
10 days to rescue the peace
process, Kerry called it a "critical
moment" for the peace process
and vowed to continue his efforts
"no matter what." But he added
there are limits to what the
Obama administration can do
to push the parties together and
said it would be a "tragedy" if the
talks failed.
In unusually blunt terms,
Kerry made his impatience

clear although he allowed that
he could not force Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or
Palestinian President Mahmoud
Abbas to continue the talks, let
alone actually resolve the long-
running conflict.
"You can facilitate, you can
push, you can nudge, but the
parties themselves have to make
fundamental decisions and
compromises," he said. "The
leaders have to lead and they
have to be able to see a moment
when it's there."
He recalled the old adage that
you can lead a horse to water but
can't make it drink.
"Now is the time to drink,"
Kerry said. "The leaders need to
know that."
Later during a visit to a Nike
store for a youth soccer event,
Kerry half-joked that he was
tempted to use the company's
slogan "Just Do It" in his recent
discussions with Abbas and
Netanyahu. "But," he added
wryly, "I don't know if that would
have worked so well."
Kerry spoke with both leaders
Thursday afternoon. He said U.S.

mediators huddled 'vith Israeli,-
and Palestinian negotiators in
Jerusalem overnight.
That late-night meeting,
which lasted until 4 a.m.,
had yielded some progress in
resolving "some of the questions
that have arisen as a result of
the events of the last few days,"
Kerry said. "But there is a still a
gap and that gap will have to be
closed and closed very soon."
Kerry has spent much of the
last two weeks frantically trying
to keep the peace talks from
breaking down.
He saw Netanyahu in Israel
on Monday and Abbas last week
in Jordan, but cancelled a third
trip to the region on Wednesday
after the Palestinians said they
would seek greater United
Nations recognition over Israeli
objections. Abbas announced
the move after Israel refused to
release a group of Palestinian
prisoners it had earlier agreed to
free.
Both actions run counter to
the agreement the two sides
reached last year to negotiate a
settlement by the end of April.

Infrastructure
remains intact
despite continued
quakes
IQUIQUE,Chile(AP)-Coastal
residents of Chile's far north spent
a second sleepless night outside
their homes as major aftershocks
continued Thursday following a
magnitude-8.2 earthquake that
damaged several thousand homes
and caused six deaths.
No new major damage or
casualties were reported, and
a heavy police and military
presence kept order.
The infrastructure in the
area is nearly entirely intact, but
with aftershocks continuing, life
has been anything but normal.
Power remains out in many areas,
and hospitals were handling
only emergencies. Schools were
closed, and large supermarkets
and gas stations coordinated their
reopenings Thursday with police
and military to avoid problems
with long lines of customers.

After a magnitude-7.6
aftershock struck just before
midnight Wednesday, Chile's
Emergency Office and navy
issued a tsunami alert, and for
two hours ordered everyone
living in low-lying areas along
the country's entire 2,500-
mile (4,000-kilometer) Pacific
coastline to evacuate.
Among those moved inland
was President Michelle Bachelet,
who was in the city of Arica
assessing damage in the north
from Tuesday night's powerful
quake.
"I was evacuated like all
citizens. One can see that the
people are prepared," she tweeted
early Thursday.
Chile's evacuation order was
lifted at around 2 a.m. Thursday.
Some 900,000 people also were
affected the night before when
the entire coast was evacuated
for several hours after Tuesday's
bigger quake, although the
tsunami proved small.
A 6.1-magnitude aftershock
47 miles (76 kms) southwest of
Iquique shook the area again late
Thursday.

The repeated aftershocks have
shaken buildings and sent people
running into the streets in the
port of Iquique, the largest city
closest to the epicenter. About 45
minutes before the 7.6 quake, a
magnitude-6.5 aftershock also
rattled Iquique. The shaking
loosened more landslides near
Alto Hospicio, a poor area at the
entrance to Iquique where about
2,500 homes had been damaged
in Tuesday's larger quake.
The Ministry of Education
suspended classes again
in schools in the north for
Thursday, while the region's top
prosecutor, Manuel Guerra, said
his office is taking action against
speculators who sharply raised
prices for bread, water, milk and
diapers. "They will be detained
and charged," Guerra tweeted,
calling on the community to
denounce "intolerable" abuses.
The largest aftershock
was felt across the border in
southern Peru, where people in
the cities of Tacna and Arequipa
fled buildings in fear. Police
Lt. Freddy Cuela in Tacna said
no damage or injuries were
