Want to see the world's largest Latka? Today, Hillel is going to produce and cook the world's largest potato pancake right here on the UA Mall. Swing by between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to check it out while it is in the making. Once it is completed, it will be broken down and given to a Tucson soup kitchen. Wonder why Hillel is doing this? Bethany Weinstein at 624-6561 can answer that question and others about Hillel.

Men's basketball looks to defend their No. 4 ranking tonight as they take on the Brigham Young University Cougars at McKale Center. See the show put on by the freshman backcourt Jason Gardner and Gilbert Arenas. BYU is currently 2-0, after defeating Southern Utah and UC-Riverside last week. The Wildcats are fresh off their Preseason NIT championship, with four wins over No. 14 Kentucky, Notre Dame, New Mexico State and Kansas State. Tip off time for the game is 9 p.m. The few tickets that are available can be picked up at the McKale ticket office, located on the south side of the McKale Center. You can also call 621-2287.

Today is AIDS awareness day, and to commemorate this event, UAB sponsors a table on the Mall giving out ribbons and condoms. The table will be out from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the UA Mall. Also taking part in the day's activities is the Center for Creative Photography. CCP is commemorating the day with its feature, "Day Without Art." This is the 11th anniversary and more than 6,000 art communities from around the world are taking part. CCP is planning to create moments of pause throughout the day by having the main gallery darkened 10 minutes every hour and voices describing the impact of AIDS across the African continent. During the reading, a light will shine on photographs of East Africa by Lynn Davis. Red ribbons will be available. The center will be open all afternoon, so call CCP at 621-7968 for exact hours.

Tickets for this special event will cost between $40 and $56, and can be purchased at the Centennial Hall box office or by calling them at 621-3341. The show is a combination of dance, music and just plain fun.
