The complete
autumn 2014
reading list,

to kick off the,
__ __ __ _ fall season

Weekend Roundup Contributor
Fall is officially here in
Michigan, so instead of moping
around over the end of summer
weather, get outside and take
in all that Ann Arbor has to
offer this fall. No matter what
you are interested in - from
squirrel-feeding to opera -
there are plenty of activities
to ring in this season of apples,
donuts, cider, football and
great weather.
This weekend, The Second
City comedy troupe will be
in town. This improv-based
sketch comedy group serves
as a training ground for great
comedians. Just ask Tina Fey,
This is a great opportunity for
procrastination while having
a laugh with friends. Tickets
are $20 for students, which is
a great deal to watch future

celebrities poke some fun at you
and your friends. The Second
City will perform at The Ark at
8 p.m. on Sept. 26 and 27.
For all you out-of-state
students worrying about the
weather Michigan delivers,
especially the snow and polar
vortexes, visit the WeatherFest
this Sunday, Sept. 28, on the
Diag from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Meet weather and climate
enthusiasts from organizations
such as the National Weather
Service, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
and more to discuss climate
change. The event will feature
fun weather activities and
opportunities to network
with the nation's leading
meteorologists, climatologists
and physical scientists. For all
you interested in pursuing a
career in the natural sciences,
this is a must, and for those
of you who just want to learn

more about the climate, this is
a great way to get out and enjoy
the weather while we still can.
Cider Mill
One of the greatest qualities
of Ann Arbor in the fall is the
abundance of cider and donuts
available to be consumed at all
times. Check out the Dexter
Cider Mill or the famous
Wiard's Orchards in Ypsilanti.
If you are carless, there is an
Ann Arbor bus route that goes
to the Dexter Cider Mill - all
you n'eed is your Mcard to
enjoy the delicious aromas of
fall. Once you have arrived
at the cider mill, stay awhile
and enjoy the off-campus
atmosphere for a bit of stress
relief before returning to
campus and the mountains of
work you have to do.
As always, there is plenty to
do in and around Ann Arbor,
so spread your wings and try
some new activities this fall!

Weekend Roundup Editor
If you somehow find enough
free time during the day or are
looking for a book to curl up with
before bed, here are some novels
you should read this fall. .
The Cuckoo's Calling
byJ.K. Rowling
J.K. Rowling, writing
under the pseudonym "Robert
Galbraith," moved from the
wizarding world of Harry Potter
to the world of struggling private
investigator Cormoran Strike.
After the death of supermodel
Lula Landry is ruled a suicide,
her suspicious brother hires
Strike to determine what may
have really led to her death. If
you want to read more about
Strike, Galbraith released "The
Silkworm," the second Strike
mystery, earlier this summer.
Orange is the New Black: My
Year in aWomen's Prison
by Piper Kerman
Whether you spent a solid
three days watching the second
season of "Orange is the New
Black" on Netflix this summer
or haven't seen an episode,
Piper Kerman's memoir is a fast
and interesting read. While the
television show is loosely based
on her experiences, Kerman's
book does an amazing job

of telling her real story and
reflecting on her sense of shared
humanity with the women with
whom she was locked up for a
The Goldfinch
by Donna Tartt
After surviving a terrorist
bombing that killed his mother,
Theo Decker's fate is changed as
he is bounced around to different
friends and family members
throughout his childhood. As he
grows into a teenager and later
intoadulthood,the one thingthat
remains a constant guiding force
in Theo's life is his possession
of a small, 19th-century
painting masterpiece called
The Goldfinch. Tartt brings
great emotional depth to the
development of her characters
as the reader follows their lives
over the years.
Paper Towns
by John Green
If you felt strangely out of the
loop for not having read "The
Fault in Our Stars" this summer,
pop culture fandom and prepare
yourself for next summer's
release of the second John Green

(known as Q) as he follows a
series of hidden clues left for him
byhis runaway friend.

Obama calls for support
at U.N. to help fight ISIS

In opening address,
highlights global
refugee crisis
- Confronted by the growing
threat of Middle East militants,
President Barack Obama
implored world leaders at the
United Nations Wednesday
to rally behind his expanding
military campaign to stamp out
the violent Islamic State group
and its "network of death."
"There can be no reasoning,
no negotiation, with this brand
of evil," Obama told the General
Assembly. In a striking shift
for a president who has been
reluctant to take military action
in the past, Obama declared
that force is the only language
the militants understand.
He warned those who have
*joined their cause to "leave the
battlefield while they can."
The widening war against
the Islamic State was just
one in a cascade of crises that
confronted the presidents,
prime ministers and monarchs
" at the annual meeting of the
U.N. General Assembly. Also
vying for attention was Russia's
continued provocations in
Ukraine, a deadly Ebola
outbreak in West Africa, and
the plight of civilians caught in
conflicts around the world.
"Not since the end of the
Second World War have
there been so many refugees,
displaced people and asylum
seekers," U.N. Secretary-
General Ban Ki-moon said as he
opened Wednesday's session.
In a rare move, Obama
also chaired a meeting of
the U.N. Security Council
where members unanimously
adopted a resolution requiring
all countries to prevent the
recruitment and transport
of would-be foreign fighters
preparing to join terrorist
organizations such as the
Islamic State group.
The American-led military
campaign in the Middle East
was at the center of much of
the day's discussions. After
weeks of airstrikes in Iraq, U.S.

planes began hitting targets in
Syria this week, joined by an
unexpected coalition of five
Arab nations: Bahrain, Saudi
Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and the
United Arab Emirates.
There were more U.S. and
coalition airstrikes Wednesday
on both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi
border. U.S. and allied planes
and drones hit a dozen targets in
Syria that included small-scale
oil refineries that have been
providing millions of dollars
to the Islamic State, the U.S.
Central Command said. Saudi
Arabia and the United Arab
Emirates took part in addition
to U.S. aircraft.
France has also taken part in
strikes in Iraq, and British Prime
Minister David Cameron's office
announced that Parliament
was being recalled to London
to debate whether to join the
campaign, too.
The Islamic State has made
lightning gains in Iraq this
year and now moves freely
across the increasingly blurred
border with Syria. The group
has claimed responsibility for
the beheading of two American
journalists and a British aid
worker, sparking outrage in the
West and contributing to an
increase in public support for
military action.
Shortly after Obama's
remarks, France confirmed that
Algerian extremists allied with
the Islamic State group had
beheaded one of its citizens after
the French ignored demands to
stop airstrikes in Iraq. French
President Francois Hollande,
who was in New York for the
U.N. meetings, said the killing
underscored why "the fight the
international community needs
to wage versus terrorism knows
no borders."
U.S. officials say they are
concerned that foreigners with
Western passports could return
to their home countries to
carry out attacks. And even as
Obama welcomed support for
the resolution to deter foreign
fighters, he said more must be
"The words spoken here
today must be matched and
translated into action," he said.
The threat from the Islamic
State group has already drawn

Obama back into conflicts in
the Middle East that he has long
sought to avoid, particularly
in Syria, which is mired in a
bloody three-year civil war.
Just months ago, the president
appeared tobe on track to fulfill
his pledge to end the U.S.-led
wars he inherited in Iraq and
Obama sought to distinguish
this current military campaign
from those lengthy wars,
declaring that he has no
intention of sending U.S. troops
to occupy foreign lands. He
also pressed Middle Eastern
nations to look beyond military
action and take steps to reject
the ideology that has spawned
groups like the Islamic State
and to cut off funding that has
allowed that terror group and
others to thrive.
"No external power can
bring about a transformation
of hearts and minds," Obama
said in his nearly 40-minute
Apart from the Middle East,
the president was particularly
blunt in his condemnation of
Russia's actions in Ukraine. He
accused Moscow of sending
arms to pro-Russian separatists,
refusing to allow access to the
site of a downed civilian airliner
and then moving its own troops
across the border with Ukraine.
Still, Obama held open the
prospect of a resolution to the
conflict. While he has previously
expressed skepticism about a
cease-fire signed this month,
he said Wednesday that the
agreement "offers an opening"
for peace.
If Russia follows through,
Obama said, the U.S. will lift
economic sanctions that have
damaged Russia's economy but
so far failed to shift President
Vladimir Putin's approach.
The chaotic global landscape
Obama described Wednesday
stood in contrast to his remarks
at the U.N. one year ago, when
he touted diplomatic openings
on multiple fronts. At the time,
the U.S. was embarking on a
fresh attempt to forge an elusive
peace between Israelis and
Palestinians and there were
signs of a thaw in the decades-
old tensions between the U.S.
and Iran.
