Potholes plague campus roads


Recent rainfall in Tucson has left streets on campus torn up and full of holes, but workers are promising to patch reported potholes within 24 hours.

A lot of patched road areas are deteriorating because of the heavy rains, but that's nothing out of the ordinary, said Chris Kopach, environmental services associate director in Facilities Management.

Facilities Management has a crew who will repair any reported areas within 24 hours, Kopach said. [Read article]

Better than the best


Legendary UCLA men's basketball coach John Wooden visited the UA men's basketball team at practice yesterday as the winningest coach in Pacific 10 Conference history, with Arizona head coach Lute Olson right on his heels. By the end of this weekend, the top two names on that list may switch places.

"It's kind of ironic," said Olson about the timing of Wooden's visit. "Coach Wooden asked me a year ago if he could come here and watch a practice, and it just didn't work out." [Read article]

Exploitation, beauty reside in a tube of lipstick

Confession: I am a makeup junkie, which is stupid because I wear the stuff maybe once a month. Maybe. But each year, that doesn't stop me from buying enough to fuel the Miss America pageant several times over, or at least fill up a huge drawer in the bathroom.

I'm seduced by the beautiful packages, sleek and jet black, each containing the tiniest bit of pulverized rock. Sometimes, I look over my Sephora receipt while guiltily sliding away the "Doctors Without Borders" solicitation letter, but I don't stop buying makeup. It doesn't help that there's a Clinique counter in the bookstore, or that my neighbor has the entire Avon collection in the back seat of her Explorer. How she keeps it all from melting here in Arizona is beyond me. [Read article]

Hookah offers safe and relaxing alternatives

College students are always looking for the newest, hippest and easiest trends to keep their bored little minds occupied. While smoking weed will always be fashionable, it's illegal too. As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [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]
