Burke transitions to life is a pro, awaits suitor

By NEAL ROTHSCHILD
Daily Sports Editor
NEW YORK - Sitting in the
ballroom on the fifth floor of a
Times Square hotel Wednesday
afternoon, Trey Burke handled
questions about his past and his
future.
When asked about Michigan's
run to the NCAA Championship,
his workouts with NBA teams
drafting in the lottery and about
advice he had received, the former
Michigan point guard answered
with clarity, thought and compo-
sure. He knew the answers.
When he was asked about where
he thought he'd get drafted, what
would be his first purchase or how
he envisioned life in the NBA, he
shrugged his shoulders, stumbled
through responses and answered
with uncertainty. These questions
couldn't be answered.
Burke offered no gut feeling or

indication for where he might end his professional life, which start-
up. He couldn't say which team ed when Burke left Michigan to
visit felt the most comfortable. He declare for the draft on April 14.

"I got pretty used to it at

Transportation
will provide
additional routes
for students
By STEPHANIE DILWORTH
Daily StaffReporter
For the late-night library
goers wanting additional
options to travel to their off-
campus homes, there may be
hope.
Central Student Government
is currently exploring the
possibility of a late-night, off-
campus bus route designed
to supplement other forms
of transportation such as
SafeRide, the free late-night
service that provides students
transportation after the regular
buses have stopped running.
The plan is in its early stages
and CSG is formulating rough
drafts of potential bus routes.
Their efforts are now focused
on determining optimal bus ride
lengths and figuring out the best
bus stops. Current bus stops are
predicated to be incorporated
into the plan.
Some potential routes being
explored include one that
travels with stops on Packard
Street, South University Avenue,
Geddes Avenue and East Huron
Street.
CSG reported that a draft
route proposal is scheduled
for completion by September
2013. After the proposal is
released, students will have an
opportunity to give feedback on
the bus routes.
Business senior Michael
Proppe, president of CSG, said
CSG has begun exploring ways
to fund the project and will not
formally reach out to anyone
until a proposal has been
developed.
Proppe said because this
is a CSG-initiated project, it
would provide some funding
but would be speaking with
various departments within the
University to look for ways to

fund the project.
According to a cost estimate
provided to CSG by the
Department of Public Safety,
the cost of running a potential
off-campus bus system with two
buses for five hours running
on Thursdays, Fridays and
Saturdays would cost $62.50 per
hour for each bus. That totals
to roughly $25,000 for one
semester.
"We want to make sure
that the students utilize this
resource," Proppe said. "We
want student focus groups to
help us with finalizing routes."
He said part of the reason he
is urging for the implementation
of additional bus routes is what
he believes is an ineffective
SafeRide system.
"SafeRide is over capacity
right now," Proppe said.
"There are three SafeRide
vans and we have hundreds of
students trying to get home
late at night. Students end up
walking home alone because
they don't want to wait for an
hour for SafeRide at the library
or wherever they are and don't
want to pay for a cab."
Proppe said the idea of an
off campus bus route was the
most popular of the campaign
platforms that CSG presented
and he thinks it's crucial for the
welfare of University students.
"The off campus busing is
something we are hoping will
alleviate some of the current
problems," he said. "I think this
is really important for the safety
of students at this school who
live off campus."
However, University
Transportation Manager
Jason Bidwell said that the
current SafeRide program was
problematic. Bidwell said he
believes that the University's
available transportation
resources are more than
sufficient for University
students.
"We do have a number of late
night transportation options
and they have met the demands
of students thus far," Bidwell
said. "There have not been

excessive wait times. They serve
the campus in, general and a
small area close to campus."
Current methods of
transportation at the University
include the Ann Arbor
Transportation Authority,
which allows students to ride
for free when they use their
M-Card; Ride-Home which
allows students, faculty and
staff to share a cab with limited
locations; SafeRide, which is
available when University buses
are not operating and NightRide
which is another sharect cab
ride service which operates
when the AATA is not operating.
NightRide is five dollars per
person and goes anywhere in
Ann Arbor and small sections of
Ypsilanti.
"We have always carefully
examined the demand of the
frequency of the service in order
to meet not only the needs to
students but employees and
others using our services,"
Bidwell said.
He added that the
Transportation Department is
always open to ways to improve
the University's transportation.
"I think we are always willing
to look at possible improvements
for the safety of the University
populous in general and
improving the safety of the
community."

Information has
provided firms with
market advantage
By RACHEL PREMACK
Daily StaffReporter
Economic data produced by
the University in collaboration
with Thomson Reuters has been
in this month's headlines of the
Huffington Post, The Wall Street
Journal and The New York Times
- portraying the University in a
less than positive light.
Traders pay an undisclosed fee
to receive early access to a closely
watched economic indicator
compiled by the University, CNBC
reported two weeks ago. Since
then, everyone from members
of the University community to
New York Times op ed writer and
economist Paul - Krugman have
raised questions concerning the
morality and necessity of high-
frequency trading.
The figure, called the Index of
Consumer Sentiment, measures
consumer confidence and is
part of the U.S. Department of
Commerce's Index of Leading
Indicators.
University spokesman Rick

Fitzgerald said Reuters has
funded the research and handled
its distribution since 2007.
Reuters provides "roughly" $1
million to the University for the
research, Fitzgerald said. The
agreement stipulates that Reuters
distributes the data the University
produces.
The monthly figure is
published on Reuters' website
at 10 a.m., and Reuters' paying
customers receive the data early.
For these traders, the data is
distributed on a conference call
at 9:55 a.m. or at 9:54:58.000 a.m.
for subscribers to the ultra-low
latency distribution platform,
according to Reuters.
Ultra-low latency is in a
format specialized for high-
-speed computerized trading,
or, high-frequency trading. The
CNBC report questioned the
University's early release of data
to payingtraders, who were called
members of a "select group ... on
Wall Street" by AnnArbor.com.
Fitzgerald said the
partnership with Reuters allows
University researchers to focus
on developing data. Previously,
over 100 entities funded the
research and the University
distributed the index.
