councilelections after narrowlylos-
ing the Democratic primary race to
Hohnke in 2008.
Incumbent Tony Derezinski
(D-Ward 2) is defending his seat
against MBA-holding Democrat
Sally Hart Petersen. Margie Teall
(D-Ward 4) is up against Democrat
Jack Eaton, who ran against Teall
in the 2010 primary election. Chris-
topher Taylor (D-Ward 3) faces an
uncontested bid for re-election.
While this election is only the pri-
mary, three of the five council races

will essentially be decided as only
Democrats are running for those
positions. The only Republican run-
ning for a position on the council is
Stuart Berry in the 5th ward.
City Clerk Jacqueline Beaudry
said depending on their precinct,
students willvote in avariety ofloca-
tions around campus, including the
Michigan Union, Michigan League,
Pierpont Commons, Palmer Com-
mons and the University Coliseum.
However, Beaudry said low stu-
dent turnout is expected for the

summertime primary.
"Obviously we see historically
that the predominantly student
precincts have a lower turnout in
August" she said. "A lot of the stu-
dents are away for the summer."
Beaudry added that Ann Arbor's
expected turnout rate is 20 percent of
voters, but said the expected student
turnout would be lower than that.
"Some of the campus pre-
cincts will have very low turnout,"
Beaudry said.
Beaudry stressed that the polls

will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tuesday and that voters need to
make sure they turn over their bal-
lots to have a say in each race.
"One thing we are trying to pro-
mote (is that) ... the council races
are often missed and youhave to flip
the ballot over and they're on the
backside," she said. "We're just try-
ing to, ahead of Tuesday, let people
know to make sure they vote --vote
both sides of the ballot."
The general election is on Nov. 7,
2012.

The Olympic Games are filled
with chemistry. Metaphorically
speaking, chemistry is felt both
on and off the playing field,
while literally the chemicals
used in different medicines help
athletes overcome pain and
injury. And let's not forget the
inorganic, metal-based chemis-
try displayed during the award
ceremonies. Medallions of gold,
silver and bronze (a copper-tin
alloy) are draped around the
necks of Olympic champions,
recognizing their achievement
on a global stage.
Chemistry, figuratively and
literally, plays a significant role
in the Olympic Games. How-
ever, "the goal of Olympism is
to place sports at the service of
the harmonious development of
humankind." The XXX Olym-
piad - which began on July
27 - exemplifies this mission
statement as athletes from 205
countries unite for 17 days of
global competition.
I didn't have to wait until
the Opening Ceremony in Lon-
don to feel th'is sense of unity.
Since June, I've been spending
my time in a different sort of
international community: the
chemistry laboratory. Under
Chemistry Prof. Melanie San-
ford, I've been working on my
honors thesis. Together the
undergraduates, graduate stu-
dents and postdoctoral fellows
who conduct research in San-
ford's lab represent nine nations
and three of the five continents
depicted by the Olympic rings.
United by our curiosity in
the chemical sciences, my lab-
mates and I speak two mutual
languages, English and chem-
istry. English is the second, or
even third, language spoken by
half my lab-mates, but by draw-
ing out reaction mechanisms,
we have the ability to transcend
language barriers. Nonethe-
less, it's still not uncommon to
walk into my lab and not always
understand the conversation at
hand.
While my German is limited
to a few phrases, my fluency in

the language of chemistry has
flourished during my research
experience. Working in a
multi-cultural environment
has allowed me to view chem-
istry from many different per-
spectives. We all approach our
research from diverse edu-
cational and personal back-
grounds. The exchange of ideas
from these distinct viewpoints
'enrich and broaden the path
toward the overall solution.
In the case of my thesis, these
questions deal with the devel-
opment of reactions used to
change carbon-hydrogen bonds
into carbon-carbon bonds using
palladium as a catalyst.
Working in this lab has not
only increased my knowledge
in the field of chemistry, but
provided me with the oppor-
tunity to learn about a diverse
range of cultures. Taking
advantage of my past Spanish
classes, I've been able to get to
know my Guatemalan lab-mate
through speaking all three of
the languages we share. Dif-
ferent aspects of our person-
alities and past knowledge
flourish depending on the lan-
guage we're using. Nine years
of studying Spanish, including
a semester abroad in Seville,
Spain, have provided me with
a solid understanding of the
language. My fluency and com-
fort level, however, continue to
improve during these shared
conversations.
Though the 2012 Summer
Olympic Games come to a
close on Aug. 12, the sense of
international unity promoted
by the Games will continue in
my everyday life. While I don't
compete for gold on a daily
basis, my research in palladi-
um-based chemistry allows me
to work with chemists from
around the globe. Chemistry,
like the Olympics, unites people
from all over the world and acts
as a catalyst for multicultural
exchange.
Cydney Seigerman
is a LSA junior.

The hardest part of studying
abroad is coming back home. Yes,
you read that right. It's not the cul-
ture shock of
entering a new
territory, the
time adjust-
ment or the
food. It's not
even the mys-
terious eight-
week illness
that continues CAITLIN
to wreak havoc MORATH
on my immune
system. Out of
all the adventures and mishaps I've
faced during my time abroad, the
biggest challenge has been return-
ing home.
For starters, let's focus on the
simple things. Jet lag is much eas-
ier to overcome heading to a for-
eign land with endless treasures
to seek out. While my first day in
Rome involved a castle, the Vatican,
an authentic Italian meal with 25
strangers and a moonlit trip to the
Trevi Fountain, my first day back in
Michigan started with a trip to the
doctor, followed by some quality
time with my couch, my dog and my
DVR. Needless to say, getting my
sleep schedule back on track was a
bit more difficult.
And then there's the food. I'll
admit it, even as the major foodie
I claim to be, after six weeks I was
ready for some good ol' American
cooking. Chicken tenders, pan-
cakes, French fries, ranch dressing,
milk shakes, hotdogs; I spent my
first few days back loading up on
the classics. And then it hit me -
"it" being a tremendous belly ache
Rebel with a cause
TO THE DAILY:

- and I remembered that this isn't
the food I normally eat. The string
of food seen in every McDonalds
commercial had somehow replaced
my usual fruits and veggies. Out
of all the changes I expected from
studying abroad, I never anticipat-
ed having to retrain myself how to
eat normally at home.
Despite hours of meetings, ori-
entation, prep work and endless
advice, the heads-up that coming
home can be difficult was never
brought up. And the immediate
symptoms that shock your sys-
tem upon re-entry aren't the only
adjustments that were never men-
tioned.
Being gone for as little as two
months made me realize just how
fast things can change. I expected
to have an earth-shattering experi-
ence in Italy, chock-full of enough
stories and memorable moments to
last a lifetime. What I didn't antici-
pate was just how much would
change back at home while I was
away.
I expected to come back home
and fall into the same routine, but
I took for granted the fact that all
the people I interact with have
lives too. I had fallen far behind
on the news and gossip concerning
my loved ones. Moreover, I found
myself in the odd position of hav-
ing to schedule appointments with
my friends and family in order to
catch up because their routine had
readjusted in the time I was away.
The problem is, while they had all
found new and productive ways to
fill their time, I was dramatically
separated from the people who I
shared everything with for the past

That's another thing they don't
tell you in the brochure: form deep
bonds ahd come away with new
friends (who you will miss like hell
from the moment you step back
onto American soil). No one ,men-
tions how lonely it can be to sepa-
rate yourself from the people that
you've spent every minute of every
day with for weeks on end. I expect-
ed to love returning to the privacy
and serenity of my own home, but
that feeling was overwhelmed by
how much I missed being able to
walk down the hall and find some-
one to hang out with at any time of
day, or the security of always hav-
ing someone ready to grab dinner or
go shopping.
No one mentions
the challenges of
coming home.
I now realize just how fast things
can change, and I also know that
in just a few weeks my reality will
shift once again. Back to campus.
Back to football. Back to home-
work and late-night delivery from
Pizza House. I'll soon return to all
these things I find so familiar, but
with a newfound appreciation for
the nuanced challenges of coming
home.
