Dalai Lama delivers message of compassion to 8,000 at TCC


The 70-year-old Dalai Lama slipped off his red tennis shoes and got comfortable in the lotus position in front of thousands who came to hear him discuss the virtues of compassion.

An estimated 8,300 people flocked to the Tucson Convention Center yesterday to hear the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, give his afternoon speech.

With a playful smile, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate slapped his knees, saying most people have a different perspective on comfort and that many would find the lotus position uncomfortable. He sat in the position for the next 90 minutes. [Read article]

Football notes: Cats hope to bid errors adieu


Bye week gives squad practice time before trip

The Arizona football team saw its upset of No. 11 Purdue on Saturday literally slip through its fingertips - on more than one occasion.

Facing a Boilermakers squad that won by more than 50 points in the teams' last meeting in 2003, Arizona fought back to get within a touchdown, giving themselves the chance to tie the game in the waning moments.

An untimely fumble, missed tackles and frequent offensive penalties, however, led to yet another heartbreaking loss, 31-24. [Read article]

Bush's apology over Katrina inadequate, unacceptable


Time out. Did President Bush actually apologize to the nation last week for the government's ham-fisted response to Hurricane Katrina? Am I living in some alternate reality - namely, Russia - where the media reports on apologies to the American people that were never made and unintended bouts of contrition? Have I lost my marbles?

No - no, I haven't. And while Bush didn't go quite as far as to say, "I'm sorry," the Web sites of major U.S. newspapers have confirmed my suspicions: This is a presidency in shambles. This is a presidency so broken and bruised it has finally lowered itself into the bowels of shameful penitence. [Read article]

"UA alumna Julia Latane claims that in the past her art has been arranged in exhibits in such a way that she does not even recognize it. So, as the first "curator as artist" in a new exhibition series at Tucson's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), she intends to let her fellow artists' work speak for itself.

Latane, a Tucson native brought home 10 colleagues' work from her new residence of Los Angeles to demonstrate her idea of progressive energy in her exhibit called "Quickening."" [Read article]

More than a pop culture phenomenon, yoga is growing as a route to spirituality

Spirituality has rapidly become one of the fads popularized by mainstream media and celebrities, whether it is Madonna plugging Kabbalah or Sting sculpting his body with yoga. But the practice of yoga has 5,000-year-old roots and is much more complex than its popular portrayal.

Yoga, in general, combines spiritual, physical and emotional practices to form a deeper connection with one's self and the outer world. However it is not limited to a singular definition and seems to take on a different meaning to everyone who practices. [Read article]
