Health System
collaborates
with county as a
precaution
By QUAN NGUYEN

For theDaily
Despite the unlikelihood that
the Ebola virus will come to Ann
Arbor, experts at the University
of Michigan Health System, the
School of Public Health and Uni-
versity Health Service are working
to construct a response plan to the
virus.
The worldwide death toll from
the viral disease is more than
4,500 as of Oct. 17. The vast major-
ity of the deaths have occurred
in the West African countries of
Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
However, efforts to contain the
virus seem to be making headway
as the Centers for Disease Control
recently declared Nigeria and Sen-
egal Ebola-free.
On the home front, national con-
cern has increased after Thomas
Eric D tLibeian man vis-
iting family in Dallas, became the

first person in America to die from
Ebola Oct. 8.
That national attention prompt-
ed a formal response from the
University Tuesday afternoon,
when Robert Winfield, the Univer-
sity's Chief Health Officer, sent an
e-mail to the student body regard-
ing the school's current prepara-
tion for Ebola.
"We are behaving in a way to
maximize preparedness, minimize
risk and not alarm people unneces-
sarily," Winfield wrote.
The University has already
issued travel warnings for stu-
dents in countries that are heavily
affected by the virus. Additionally,
a protocol for students returning
from affected regions has been
established.
At UHS, patientscreenings have
become more detailed, particular-
ly in regards to travel histories for
patients who report fever or other
Ebola-like symptoms.
"We never did this level of
screening in the past," Winfield
said. "This is all in response to con-
cern of this infectious disease."
Epidemiology Prog. Eden Wells,
associate director of the preventa-
tive medicine residency, said all

New Ferguson
resolution to
be considered

After rejection
of first proposal,
CSG looks to tackle
police brutality
By TANAZ AHMED
Daily StaffReporter
After a resolution to stand
in solidarity with the people of
Ferguson was introduced Sept.
16 and was voted down Oct. 7,
a new resolution against police
brutality was proposed during
the Central Student Govern-
4l ment meeting Tuesdaynight.
The new legislation resolves
to stand in solidarity with the
people of Ferguson, Mo., sup-
port the policy solutions out-
lined by an activist Shaun King
and the Dream Defenders - a
social justice organization from
Florida - in their change.org
petition and create a joint event
with the Commission on Stu-
dent Safety and Security dis-

cussingpolice actions.
In August, following the
shooting of unarmed Black
teenager Mike Brown by a
white police officer, the people
of Fergusoniresponded with
protests calling for the end of
racial stereotyping and police
violence. The change.org peti-
tion asks U.S. citizens to end
police brutality in response of
the events in Ferguson.
Unlike the old proposal,
which was authored by both
community members as well as
CSG members, the new legisla-
tion was written by seven CSG
representatives. The current
resolution is also shorter than
the previous one.
"We tried to strip it down
and get to the heart of what we
were so keen on in the other
resolution ...We hope the moral
compass of this assembly is
on par with the values of this
kind of resolution," said LSA
senior Kathryn Abercrombie,
LSA representative and author

As a form of art that relies on
the interplay between acting and
stage design, the manipulation of
belief and disbelief, theater lends
itselfuniquelyto the interrogating
the problems of meaning-making
and selfhood. The twentieth cen-

Lecture examines
dangers of popular
prescription
By ANASTASSIOS
ADAMOPOLOUS
Daily StaffReporter
With cold and flu season in
full swing, students may be
heading to medical profession-
als hoping to get a prescription

for antibiotics and a quick and
easy means of restoring good
health.
However, Martin Blaser,
director of the Human Micro-
biome Program at the School of
Medicine at New York Univer-
sity, spoke to around 250 people
on the over consumption of
antibiotics and their long term
effects on human microbes
by giving a peek at parts of his
book, Missing Microbes and
responding to the audience's

questions.
The event was hosted by the
University's Host Microbiome
Initiative, the Center for Micro-
bial Studies and Procter and
Gamble.
Blaser discussed his book,
noting that it revolves around
the idea that microbes in the
human body have purposely
been around for a long time
since they are beneficial to
humans. However, modern
