ASUA Elections: Bernsen edges Reuben for presidency


Sonn, Hertzog win VP positions in record turnout

The Associated Students of the University of Arizona announced last night Cade Bernsen as the winning presidential candidate in the second-highest voter turnout since 1990.

In a record-breaking election, the total of 4,452 votes was still shy of the 5,241 turnout 16 years ago, but 849 more votes than last year's general election.

Bernsen won with 2,196 votes, 2.6 percent and 111 more than Jacob Reuben, who won the primaries last week by 7.3 percent. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Wildcats prepare for deep run in Pac-10 Tournament


They've been here before, and they've lost everything.

Two years ago, the Arizona men's basketball team was a No. 1 seed in the Pacific 10 Conference Tournament and was upset in the quarterfinal game by No. 8 seed UCLA.

Dreams of a championship

An hour before the big game versus Arizona State on Saturday, I was sitting in a bar with a few good friends on Mill Avenue in Tempe, sipping on drinks and devouring nachos. It was my first time there, and in the spirit of hating all things ASU, I decided that Fourth Avenue's diversity and culture beat Mill's disinfected shopping-mall feel any day. Our final days as UA students were nearing, and we were preparing for one final Pacific 10 Conference hurrah as students and fans of Arizona men's basketball. [Read article]

The language barriers in the United States speak loudly for those who exist in smaller countries, like Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Born in the northern Bosnian town, Tuzla, in 1960, Mehmedinovic moved to Sarajevo in 1979 to study comparative literature and library sciences at the University of Sarajevo, graduating in 1983. [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.
