Taking technology down the drain

On the east end of the McClelland Hall, 1130 E. Helen St., there is a conference room with three rows of theater-style seating all facing north, sloping up toward the back. The colors are common in offices today - charcoal gray , aquatic blue and purples - and the room has the feel of a spaceship with smooth fixtures everywhere. The focal point of the room is a screen implanted in the wall, about two feet long and six feet wide, where Brian Kinne, vice president of sales for TeleSuite corporation, speaks with the nine people in the room. "You're talking to a wall but hopefully it doesn't feel like you are," Kinne said.    [More]

[news] LONG BEACH, Calif.-Dylan Rigdon confounds people. Maybe it's because the 6-foot-4 point guard hardly looks the part of a basketball player, seemingly more at ease on the beach than on the basketball courts.

Regents place athletics above academics
[news] Lute Olson now makes $613,475 a year after the Arizona Board of Regents last week gave the UA basketball coach a $40,000 raise. Not too shabby. He's the state's highest paid official, making more than the three state university presidents combined. Olson's duties "related specifically to coaching basketball" will earn him $160,573 per year, while the remainder of his salary will come from television programs, advertising, public relations, fundraising and other activities.    [More]

Just plain ugly
[news] The filmmakers of "Coyote Ugly" proved one important point with their film - drunken, half-naked female bartenders dancing and writhing atop a bar are a sad replacement for intelligent dialogue, proper character development and realistic plot. Directed by motion picture newcomer David McNally, "Coyote Ugly" depicts the tired theme of a small-town woman attempting to realize her musical dreams in the heart of New York City. Piper Perabo ("The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle") plays Violet Sanford, an aspiring songwriter who moves from the garden state of New Jersey into the deepest depths of Gotham, where she is quickly hired as a bartender at Coyote Ugly.    [More]
