Plan changes released today

Some of the programs targeted under President Pete Likins' plan to narrow UA's mission could learn today that they have been spared.

Likins and Provost George Davis plan to release today final recommendations on whether to go forward with most of about 40 plans to cut, merge and reorganize university programs, UA spokeswoman Sharon Kha said yesterday.

Earlier this week, Davis would not discuss specifics of those recommendations, but he and Likins have said they might protect some areas they targeted when they released initial plans in January under Focused Excellence, the president's plan for narrowing the university's mission to deal with years of dwindling state funding.

Kunnie, director of the African-American studies department, was released 10 minutes after being detained when the threatened employee told police in a drive-by line-up that he was not the suspect. [Read article]

College of Business may add $500 program fee

When Eller College of Business administrators first approached students to tell them about a new proposal that, if passed, would tack on a $500 per year fee to their already increasing tuition, many students opposed the idea.

After explaining that the fee would help improve the school's No. 22 national ranking, however, most of them changed their minds.

"A lot of students were against it when they first heard about it," said Kristen Senseman, a marketing sophomore and member of the Eller College student council. "Once students understood the need (for the fee), they supported it." [Read article]

Men's and women's basketball teams play in wheelchairs to raise money, awareness

With less than six minutes left in the first half, UA junior guard Fil Torres let a shot fly, trying to break a close game wide open. The attempt never made it to the basket though because it was blocked by silly string.

In the 20th annual Lame for a Game at McKale Center, UA men and women's basketball teams faced the UA men and women's wheelchair basketball teams last night to raise money for the UA Disability Resource Center. [Read article]

University of Pennsylvania

Each year, millions of animals are killed for food, but most University of Pennsylvania students would not think of comparing this to the extermination of 11 million people by the Nazis during World War II.

Yet, according to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and a novel by Yiddish writer Isaac Bashevis, "In relation to (animals), all people are Nazis for them it is an eternal Treblinka." [Read article]
