In his infinite comic "wisdom," Chris Rock called to Tucson's attention that there is absolutely nothing to do in this town. If you buy that crap (or if the things to do aren't things you want to do), visit the Mall today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and check out your travel possibilities. The Study Abroad Program and the Student Exchange Office will have booths set up on our grassy knoll to inform you about opportunities to spend a semester in a different country. Dennis Kruse can give you the details at 621-4628.
Hallucinogenic fruit flies are headed your way! Arm yourself with the necessary scientific knowledge today in room 601 of the Gould-Simpson building. Martin Heinsenberg (University of Wurzberg) will explain the "Functional Correlates of the Mushroom Bodies in Drosophila" at noon under the aegis of the Arizona Research Laboratories Division of Neurobiology Seminar series. John G. Hildebrand can give you further fungi survival tips at 621-6626.
Chris Lamoureux has done some "Empirical Analysis of the Yield Curve" by studying "The Information in the Data Viewed through the Window of Cox, Intersoll and Ross." He'd be tickled a myriad of colors to tell you all about it at today's Finance Seminar. Be in room 315S of McClelland Hall from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., or he could be peering through your windows next. Lori Magloire can give you the lowdown if you call her at 621-7554.
There's lots of cool stuff to admire in the construction of a building. I don't know why they don't just call it "art"chitecture. Discover the functional beauty for yourself this afternoon at the Architecture Lecture Series. Steven Holl (Columbia University) will share his thoughts on the current work being done on the Kiasma Museum in Finland at 3:30 p.m. in room 202 of the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering building. 621-6751 is the number to call if you need further information.
First it was a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, then a Disney animated film. Now, it's an musical experience. See the latest incarnation of the girl with the glass slipper tonight at Crowder Hall, as the School of Music and Dance presents "Cendrillon." Jules Massenet's opera version of the classic poor-girl-meets-prince schpeel will be performed in French at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are in the fairly cheap range. Find out just how cheap by contacting the Fine Arts Box Office at 621-1162.
Languages that are alive are languages that change. Fittingly, jazz has matured and mutated over the last eighty years or so to remain one of the expressive types of musical story-telling. Catch a modern example of a jazz-speak tonight at Centennial Hall, as Faddis, Hampton and Heath bust out some be-bop with a little help from their friends. They'll be putting new twists on the Monk, the Yardbird, and Dizzy at 8 p.m. If the preceding names don't mean anything to you, check out Greg Armstrong's Arts Encounter Discussion at 7:15 p.m. in room 102 of the Center for English as a Second Language building. For lecture information, call Charles Roe at 621-9396. For ticket information, call the Centennial Hall Box Office at 621-3341.
