Summer session surcharge suggested

Administrators announced plans to implement a summer session tuition surcharge and to replace tuition waivers with fixed awards, measures which would potentially save the university $500,000.

President Peter Likins and Provost George Davis revealed their strategies to reallocate university finances to combat the UA's budget woes at Friday's Campus Town Hall meeting.

Likins said with the rapidly declining rate of state funding, the university is forced to turn elsewhere for money, and centralizing resources is the best solution. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Senior Salim drops bombs on Beavers


Wildcats all smiles during romp over Oregon State

The only people scowling in McKale Center yesterday afternoon were the Oregon State Beavers.

The No. 10 Arizona men's basketball team (23-4, 13-2 Pacific 10 Conference), particularly guard Salim Stoudamire, was all smiles during their 91-70 win over the Beavers (14-11, 6-8) in front of 14,592 fans on senior day.

"Disgustingly good," was Stoudamire, said fellow senior Channing Frye, who scored 15 points and added 11 rebounds. [Read article]

Time to drop tuition lawsuit

Now that tuition-hike season is in full swing (it's the second-most wonderful time of the year), people are coming out of the woodwork to throw in their two cents. This includes the quixotic group of current and former students that are seeking to solve the state's higher-education funding problems through litigation.

This week the plaintiffs, led by former UA student and former state Rep. John Kromko, made their case once again. They argue that because the Arizona Constitution requires all state educational institutions to be "as nearly free as possible," last year's tuition increase was illegal. A state trial judge threw the case out a year ago, but Kromko and associates have moved up to the court of appeals. [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.
