Tuition fees not covered by waivers

Students who receive a tuition waiver from the UA will still have to pay program fees if President Peter Likins' tuition proposal, which includes an 11.4 percent total increase of resident undergraduate tuition in addition to eight program fees, is approved in March.

Jerry Hogle, vice provost of instruction, said the program fees, also known as differential tuition surcharges, in Likins' proposal are separate from tuition. As a result, students would be required to pay those fees even if they do not have to pay tuition. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Ducks overpowered by tough Wildcat defense


If there was ever a question of the importance of experience, it showed last night in McKale Center.

The Arizona men's basketball team got 41 points from its two top seniors to take advantage of a young Oregon squad in front of a crowd of 14,597.

"Every night is senior night from now on," said senior center Channing Frye, who ended with 19 points, as classmate Salim Stoudamire contributed a game-high 22.

Meanwhile, Oregon started five underclassmen, and all but two of the team's points came from freshmen and sophomores. [Read article]

Tolerance and lessons from Babel

The crowd has grown belligerent, but Jed Smock remains in his seat, legs crossed and unperturbed. The small congregation of students has encircled him menacingly, perforating his speech with cutting verbal barbs. He pauses as a student hurls a profanity-laden insult, and a small hint of a smile plays across his lips. On this windy Tuesday afternoon, he almost seems to be enjoying this.

Since his calamitous debut on Monday, a debacle that very nearly resulted in his arrest, Smock has created quite a stir on the Alumni Plaza. Spewing rhetoric that is ignorant at best, and anti-Semitic and misogynistic at worst, the evangelist has engendered no small amount of student outrage. But while most of Smock's commentary is certainly shameful, it was the student response Tuesday afternoon that was most disappointing. [Read article]

If you slapped some fake tits on him, then dolled him up in a wig and makeup, Gael García Bernal would be just as hot as a woman. Fortunately, he's still all man after filming "Bad Education," in which he plays a gender-bending director trying to turn a friend's traumatic childhood into a film.

At 27, Bernal is a rarity in cinema, rising to fame and heartthrob status by acting exclusively in Spanish-language films. He banged his brother's wife in "Amores Perros," had a three-way with his real-life best friend in "Y Tú Mamá También" and played a seductive priest in "El Crimen del Padre Amaro." [Read article]

Metal, ink and flesh: the painful pleasure of tattoos and piercings

No living human is a stranger to pain. But why do humans choose to endure pain in exchange for something as aesthetic as a tattoo or piercing?

When asked why she got so many piercings, aerospace engineering junior Brittany Neverman gave the most honest answer.

"I don't know," she said. "I think I'm addicted to piercing. It's kind of a rush." [Read article]
