U of Iowa officials debate policy

Though University of Iowa
officials have headed calls to
crack down on sexual miscon-
duct, the Daily Iowan reported a
lack of communication persists
between the university and the
schools where expelled students
end up.
But between 2011 and 2013,
eleven people were suspended
from the university for sexual
misconduct.
Under current policy, the uni-
versity does not communicate
with other schools when a stu-
dent expelled for sexual mis-
conduct transfers to another
institution. The school also does
not receive disciplinary records
from other schools when accept-

ing transfer students.
Though university officials
have cited the Family Education
Rights and Privacy Act as the poli-
cy preventing distribution of disci-
plinary records, Frank LoMonte,
the executive director of the
Student Press Law Center, said
institutions are allowed to share
disciplinary records without a stu-
dent's permission, given that the
violation is a sexual offense.
Police suspect marijuana man-
ufacturing in a University of
New Hampshire dorm room
After a minor fire occurred
in a dorm room on the campus
of the University of New Ilamp-

shire Sunday night, investigators
suspect illicit drug manufactur-
ing could have started the fire in
the room, The New Hampshire
reported.
After extinguishing the fire,
police found marijuana, glass-
ware and other illicit drugs in the
dorm room. A press release sent
out by the UNH Police Depart-
ment stated thatthey are current-
ly unsure about whom the drugs
belong to and therefore have not
issued any charges.
Paul Dean, executive director
of public safety at the university,
issued a press release regarding
the purported drug manufac-
turing early this week.

Android Wear
BY STEVEN TWEEDIE
Google announced its new
operating system that will
address the needs of wear-
able technology products.
Smart watches from LG
and Motorola will pioneer
Android Wear, and collabo-
rations with more fashion-
oriented brands like Fossil
are projected for the future.
Gender politics
BY EMMA MANIERE
The arguments by women
for their advancement in
politics remains "frustrat-
ing and tainted by gender
essentialism," as they refer
to motherly instincts and
emotional capacity. Femi-
nist philosopher Uma Nara-
yan argues that privileged
women's problems unfairly
become women's "issues."

l t Q yn
Feminine critique
BY PHOEBE YOUNG
Young explains the inse-
curities widely experienced
by females as a projection of
their own desires to look dif
ferent. She goes on to illus-
trate the disconnect between
the female body and mind,
and how women in general
must reclaim these compro-
mised identities.

Eggenberger added that Ann

The survey indicated that half

area know Ann Arbor best for the
University. The next best known
draw was the Ann Arbor Art Fair,
which 35 percent of participants
said was Ann Arbor's trademark.
Its range of restaurants, medical

well-known factors.
This spike in Ann Arbor
tourism can be felt statewide.
Michelle Grinnell, the public

spring and summer. In Michigan,
Grinnell said, golfing, fishing and
going to the beach are all popular
activities.
Good Morning America
recently labeled Michigan beach-

spurred an influx of tourists to
those areas. Grand Rapids and

been gaining popularity ever

Grinnell said that this acco-
lade helped put Grand Rapids on

city or thought to go there. Grand

Ukrainian and
Western leaders
deem Putin a threat
to global security
MOSCOW (AP) - In a gild-
ed Kremlin hall used by czars,
Vladimir Putin redrew Russia's
borders Tuesday by declaring the
Crimean Peninsula part of the
motherland - provoking a surge
of emotion among Russians who
lament the loss of empire and
denunciations from Western
leaders who called Putin a threat
to the world.
In an ominous sign, a Ukraini-
an serviceman and a member of
a local self-defense brigade were
killed by gunfire in Crimea just
hours after Putin's speech, the
first fatalities stemming from the
Russian takeover.
While Putin's action was
hailed by jubilant crowds in Mos-
cow and cities across Russia,
Ukraine's new government called
the Russian president a threat to
the "civilized world and interna-
tional security," and the U.S. and
Europe threatened tougher sanc-
tions against Moscow.
Vice President Joe Biden,
meeting with anxious European
leaders in Poland, denounced
what he called "nothing more

than a land grab."
"The world has seen through
Russia's actions and has rejected
the flawed logic," Biden said.
In an emotional 40-min-
ute speech televised live from
the Kremlin's chandeliered St.
George hall, Putin said the time
has come to correct a historical
injustice and stand up to West-
ern pressure by incorporating
Crimea.
"In people's hearts and minds,
Crimea has always been an inte-
gral part of Russia," he declared.
He dismissed Western criti-
cism of Sunday's Crimean refer-
endum - in which residents of
the strategic Black Sea peninsula
voted overwhelmingly to break
off from Ukraine and join Rus-
sia - as a manifestation of the
West's double standards.
"They tell us that we are vio-
lating the norms of international
law. First of all, it's good that they
at least remember that interna-
tional law exists," Putin said,
pointing at what he called the
U.S. trampling of international
norms in wars in Serbia, Iraq,
Afghanistan and Libya.
"Our Western partners led by
the United States prefer to pro-
ceed not from international law,
but the law of might in their prac-
tical policies," he said.
Often interrupted by raucous
applause, Putin said the rights of

ethnic Russians in Ukraine had
been abused by the new Ukrai-
nian government and insisted
Crimea's vote to join Russia was
legitimate and reflected its right
for self-determination.
Denouncing what he called
Western arrogance, hypocrisy
and pressure, Putin warned that
the West must drop its stubborn
refusal to take Russian con-
cerns into account. He pointed
at NATO's eastward expansion,
the alliance's U.S.-led missile
defense plans and, finally, the
Western moves to pull Ukraine
into its orbit.
"If you push a spring too hard,
at some point it will spring back,"
he said. "You always need to
remember this."
Only hours after Putin boast-
ed that the Russian takeover of
Crimea was conducted without a
single shot, a Ukrainian military
spokesman said a Ukrainian ser-
viceman was killed and another
injured when a military facility
in Crimea was stormed Tuesday
by armed men.
A Crimea police spokeswom-
an, Olga Kondrashova, later was
quoted by Interfax news agency
as saying that a Ukrainian ser-
viceman and a member of a local
self-defense brigade were killed
by gunfire coming from the
same location, and two other
people were wounded.
