Dark but not dank, medieval but not torturous - it's The Cellar! Eat to the Beat is doing their best to drown out the televised impeachment proceedings by providing you with an alternative to staring at the gargantuan TV down there. Catch Tommy Tucker in the act (of strumming) from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. today. The epitome of the man and his guitar, he'll be plucking out some solo acoustic blues just for you. William Guth can give you a background sketch at 621-1111.

Okay - either all of you Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering students are failing your papers horribly, or the folks in the department are just feeling generous. Either way, Marion K. Slack (UA Department of Pharmacy Practice) will be leading an ABE Department Seminar today from noon to 1 p.m. Slack will teach you, for once and for all, "How to Write a Research Report." Sound like a golden opportunity? Then come to room 440 of the Shantz building. Stephanie Wang can give you the details at 621-1753.

Size doesn't matter: Dick Bond (CITA) will be "Probing Cosmic Structure from the Ultralarge to the Rather Small" at 4 p.m. at today's Theoretical Astrophysics Colloquium. Join him and other non-discriminating scientists in room N210 of the Steward Observatory and be assured that bigger isn't necessarily better. Barbara Kausen can tell you more at 621-7690.

In an attempt to shock the tastebuds of Martha Stewart's delicate palate, Peter Jumars (University of Washington) will be introducing your culinary fancy to some rather non-traditional edibles. (Well, non-traditional for humans, but commonplace for some sea life.) Meet him in room 301 of the Biological Sciences West building today for an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Seminar. He'll be praising "Gourmands of mud: Diet selection in marine deposit feeders" at 4 p.m. Call the EEB department at 621-1588 for more information.

Since we can't all travel in Air Force One, I suppose we're stuck in whatever craft the airlines decide to use. Be nice if we could be sure we weren't flying in the equivalent of a B-52 bomber, right? Surprise - we can. Sergey Shkarayev has put together a "Probabilistic and Deterministic Method to Enhance the Safety of Aging Airplanes," and will share his reassuring findings with you from 4 to 5 this afternoon. The occasion? It's the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering 696G Graduate Seminar. The location? Room S202 of AME building #119 (northeast corner of Speedway/Mountain). Need more information? Contact Barbara Heefner at 621-4692.

Religious fanatics had David Koresh, movie-goers had George Burns, but "Is There a God of the Cosmologists?" George Coyne will attempt to answer this very question tonight at the Steward Observatory Public Evening Series Lecture. Hear the debate from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in room N210 of the Steward Observatory, then skip on over to the Campus Station of the Observatory for some star-gazing. Connie Walker will kindly fill you in on the rest at 621-7096.
