Summer school ends
The end is near. Today marks the end of the second summer session. Most will finish the term by taking various examinations and by partying like we only have 12 days until it all starts again. Be happy, your summer is over. Do something for yourself.

Meteor shower
Those won't be UFO's you will see in the Tucson skies this evening. Tonight is the best night to see the annual Perseid Meteor Shower, and this year, viewers are in for a special treat. Due to the solar eclipse on Wednesday, the moon will be in its new phase, which will allow viewers to see the meteors without the moon's glare. Best viewing spots are located anywhere outside of the city lights, but your rooftop will do. The showers become visible around 9 p.m., but the optimal time to check them out is around midnight, where the meteors are expected to be at their brightest. If you miss this phenomenon tonight, you will still be able to see the meteors both Friday and Saturday night around the same time.

Regents meeting
Need your voice to be heard on education? Then travel on up to Flagstaff to check out this month's board meeting, which is being held at Northern Arizona University. Show up and let them know how you feel about various collegiate issues. The meeting is scheduled for 8 a.m., and you can call Judy Garza at 229-2507 for further information.

August 13
The Arizona Diamondbacks begin a six game homestand against the Milwaukee Brewers tonight at 7:05. The Diamondbacks are still pushing for their first ever division title, and hope to continue along that path by defeating the Brewers. Tickets for the game start around $7 for upper deck tickets and can be picked up at the front gate all weekend. After their three game set against Milwaukee, the Diamondbacks take on the Chicago Cubs from Monday until Wednesday.

Want your movie picks for the week? Being that it is summer, there are many to choose from. The new release for this week is "Detroit Rock City," a reenactment of 70's teenagers trying their hardest to get to the KISS concert in Detroit. If you need something a little less childish, "The Iron Giant," a cartoon story about a robot that fell from the sky and attempts to live in a small New England town. Need to be scared stiff? "Blair Witch Project" is still available to send chills down your spine. On the lighter side both "Mystery Men" and "Inspector Gadget" can produce some laughs. All of these movies can be found at theaters around Tucson.
