Faculty/Staff Mentors needed for
Fall 2005 Program
Greetings from University Mentorship! I'd like to invite
you to consider being a Faculty/Staff Mentor for a group of
next year's class of 2009.
The goal of the University Mentorship Program is to enhance
the undergraduate experience for Michigan students by providing
them with Mentors. The role of a Faculty/Staff Mentor is to
help undergrads navigate the university and to encourage the
students to learn more about the resources available to them
on campus. Each group has a Peer Mentor and Faculty/Staff Mentor
who work together to assist a group of 4 first-year students
with their transition to UM during the first semester of school.
Typically Faculty/Staff Mentors spend about 4-6 hours per
month doing Mentorship related activities, including meeting
with one or all of their group members, communicating via email
and telephone, and attending Mentorship activities. First-year
students tell us time and again how beneficial it is to be immediately
connected with a Faculty/Staff Mentor who can answer questions,
offer advice, and be a resource to them at UM. Peer Mentors
enjoy the experience of working one-on-one with a UM faculty
or staff person, as you can share your experiences and insight
about your field and/or their academic and career goals.
Online applications are available at the following link:
The application takes about 10 minutes to complete. I would
be happy to answer any questions you have about the Faculty/Staff
Mentor role. Thank you for your time and consideration of this
worthwhile endeavor, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Panthers Want to Sell Hot Sauce
Date: Tuesday, July 19, 2005
By: Associated Press
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Former Black
Panthers are hoping the phrase "Burn Baby Burn"
will help their nonprofit organization market a new
product -- hot sauce.
The Huey P. Newton Foundation, named
for the co-founder of the 1960s militant group, is
seeking to trademark the phrase that for many brings
to mind the racially charged 1965 Watts Riots in Los
Angeles that left more than 30 people dead, at least
1,000 wounded and hundreds of buildings in ashes
The new line of hot sauce, called
"Burn Baby Burn: A Taste of the Sixties Revolutionary
Hot Sauce," is aimed at "anyone who wants
to have an extra savory boost to their food,"
executive director and original Black Panther David
Hilliard said in an interview.
"The hot sauce is another way
to raise money and bring attention to the Huey Newton
Foundation," Hilliard said. "We're trying
to turn the tide of violence and educate young people
through our work."
The foundation's hot sauce plans
were first reported by The Smoking Gun, a Web site
that posts court documents, usually involving celebrities.
The foundation also plans to produce
its own salsa, as well as a clothing line called "Spirit
of the Sixties."
Hilliard said the group hopes to
start selling the spicy condiment later this year
to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1966 founding
of the Black Panther Party.

Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation
The Dr. Huey P.
Newton Foundation was founded in 1993 in Oakland,
California, by David Hilliard and Fredrika Newton. Its
purpose is to honor the legacy of Black Panther Party
co-founder Huey P. Newton, effecting progressive social
change by teaching practical lessons of community service.
Beginning in the 1960s, the Black Panther Party pioneered
free social service programs that now are in the mainstream
of American life. The Party's Sickle Cell Anemia Research
Foundation, operated with Oakland's Children's Hospital,
was among the nation's first sickle cell testing programs,
and inspired the federal government's initial funding
of sickle cell research. Its Free Breakfast Program served
as a model for such children's programs nationwide. The
Foundation is committed to enhancing community awareness
of these and other contributions that have served the
needs of America's most disempowered citizens. These contributions
are the basis for the work that remains to be done to
build a meaningful, inclusive society for all.
John G. Roberts
Mr. Roberts graduated from Harvard College,
summa cum laude, in 1976, and received his law degree,
magna cum laude, in 1979 from the Harvard Law School,
where he was managing editor of the Harvard Law Review.
Following graduation he clerked for Judge Henry J. Friendly
of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit,
and the following year for then-Associate Justice William
Following his clerkship experience, Mr.
Roberts served as Special Assistant to United States Attorney
General William French Smith. In that capacity he handled
a broad range of constitutional and law enforcement issues
for the Attorney General, dealing with state and local
officials and representatives of foreign governments,
as well as general counsel throughout the federal government.
In 1982 President Reagan appointed Mr. Roberts to the
White House Staff as Associate Counsel to the President,
a position in which he served until joining Hogan &
Hartson L.L.P. in 1986. Mr. Roberts' responsibilities
as Associate Counsel to the President included counseling
on the President's constitutional powers and responsibilities,
as well as other legal issues affecting the executive
A day after President George W. Bush
nominated John G. Roberts to the U.S. Supreme Court, black
activists Wednesday questioned Roberts' commitment to
civil rights and expressed concern that the nation's highest
court could shift dramatically to the right.
Civil rights activists say the Supreme
Court has a history of deciding by narrow margins many
important cases that deeply affect all minorities. Its
decisions can determine U.S. policy on workers' rights,
affirmative action, voting rights and education. Given
the close split on the high court between moderates and
conservatives, some say, the next Supreme Court Justice
-- perhaps Roberts -- will alter the ideological direction
of the country for years to come.
Roberts, 50, has been on the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the District of Columbia Circuit since June 2003 after
being picked for that seat by Bush. In the early 1980s,
Roberts was also a clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice
William Rehnquist. The millionaire judge graduated Harvard
Law School and has worked for the Washington law firm
of Hogan & Hartson, one of the nation's most prestigious
Last October, while serving on the D.C. court, Roberts
voted with two colleagues to uphold the arrest and detention
of a 12-year-old girl for eating french fries at a D.C.
Metro station, though his opinion noted, "No one
is very happy about the events that led to this litigation."
Roberts upheld the constitutionality
of Ansche Hedgepeth's arrest. The black youngster from
D.C. was handcuffed and arrested by D.C. Metro Transit
Police and the incident drew national attention. Roberts
wrote that Hedgepeth was searched, booked, fingerprinted
and detained in a juvenile center, "all for eating
a single french fry in a Metrorail station."
Rep. Mel Watt (D-NC), chairman of the
Congressional Black Caucus, said the caucus will closely
evaluate Roberts' record on issues of particular importance
to black Americans
