GOLDEN APPLE WINNER: VICTOR LIEBERMAN
Apro essor who,
doesn't mind
the hard topics

After 30 years at
U',noted instructor
reflects on career
and research
By ALICIA ADAMCZYK
Daily StaffReporter
Teaching was not History
Prof. Victor Lieberman's first
career choice. Lieberman, who
has taught at the University
since 1984, originally believed
his future would be comprised
of research and "solving histori-
cal and intellectual problems."
And though his research
chops aren't in question -
in fact, he has been granted
countless awards and fellow-
ships and has written dozens
of articles and book chapters on
various research interests, with
research taking up the "bulk" of
his time in Ann Arbor - it is as
a teacher that Lieberman truly
shines; at least according to his.
students.
Lieberman is the recipient of
this year's Golden Apple Award,

an annual award that recogniz-
es excellence in teaching and is
determined by University stu-
dents.
Granted by University of
Michigan Hillel, the award hon-
ors faculty who "consistently
teach each lecture as if it were
their last, and strive not only to
disseminate knowledge but to
inspire and engage students in
its pursuit."
While he didn't necessar-
ily bleed maize and blue before
coming to the University - he
said he came to Ann Arbor
because the University offered
the only job available in his field
- Lieberman said the emotional
bonds he has created with stu-
dents changed his perspective
on teaching.
"Once I started teaching I
found it was a lot of fun," he
said. "I like interacting with
students; I like to see their
enthusiasm and to kind of
inspire them." .
"I find U of M undergradu-
ates very bright, enthusiastic
and eager to learn, and work-
ing with them is tremendously

RESEARCH
New study
reinforces the
importance
of sleep cycle
Scientists discover new
neural interactions that
affect biological clock
in humans
By AMABEL KAROUB
Daily StaffReporter
Tired? Going to sleep is more
important than you may think.
Many people may have heard of
circadian rhythms - they're the rea-
son for your 4 p.m. exhaustion or your
jetlag after returning from spring
break in Paris. In simple terms, these
rhythms tell your body when to sleep
and when to wake up.
The rhythms usually work in
24-hour periods and are run by cells
known as 'clock neurons.' In a recent
study, University researchers dis-
covered that these clock neurons are
much more complex than they previ-
ously thought.
In the past, scientists believed a
small group of neurons controlled
the thousands of clock neurons in
the humanbrain. OrieShafer, assis-
tant professor of molecular, cellular
and developmental biology, found

Rackham students Ernily Taylor and Nancy Gehart celebrate after receiving tickets to President Obama's speech.
Student tickets for Oama
distributed in two hours

Nearly 1,000
line up to vie
for tickets to
Wednesday event
By SHOHAM GEVA
Daily StaffReporter
Starting at 5 p.m. Monday
evening, students began to line
up outside the Michigan Union
to secure their spot for tickets

for President Barack Obama's
Wednesday address on campus,
forming a line of nearly 1,000
that traveled from the Union's
side entrance to the Kelsey
Archaeology museum.
At 10:30 that morning Tues-
day morning, an hour and a
half after tickets started being
distributed, the ticket office
announced it was out of tickets
and shut down, turning away
SO to 60 students who were
still in line. Obama will make
his third visit to campus during

his presidency to discuss his
proposal to raise federal mini-
mum wage from $7.25 to $10.10
an hour.
LSA seniors Janani Naidu
and Srilatha Eadara, who wait-
ed in line for about an hour
and a half before being turned
away, said while they were dis-
appointed to be turned away,
but they understood their late
arrival in relation to others
would result in this manner.
"It wasn't horrible, but it's
