Mraz takes Centennial stage


Pock rock artist Jason Mraz dazzled nearly 1,600 fans last night with his tongue-twisting rhymes and wordplays in Centennial Hall.

The UA concert was the second stop for Mraz and back-up band The Take It Easy Buddies on their Mr. A-Z tour, after kicking it off the night before in Phoenix.

The show was organized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Special Events Committee and sponsored by the radio station 92.9 FM KWMT, said Ryan Patterson, ASUA special events director. [Read article]

Arizona men's club volleyball: Rising to the challenge


Perennial club powerhouse sports top-level talent

While it hasn't hoisted any banners on National Championship Drive, the Arizona men's club volleyball team boasts a championship history of its own.

As one of the top club teams in the nation, the Wildcats have made winning a habit. Arizona took home four national titles in five years, winning in 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2003.

"I wasn't here for it, but I hear it's pretty amazing," said junior setter Brady Dinnsen. "Every year we're in the top five. Every team in the nation wants to beat us. We just got upset last year, and it was a big disappointment." [Read article]

Teenagers and virginity: an oxymoron?


"Kids be gettin' freaky!"

That is a basic summary of the recently released study "Sexual Behavior and Selected Health Measures" by the National Center for Health Statistics. It is "the government's most comprehensive survey of American sexual practices and reproductive health" according to The New York Times , and I must say, it is quite steamy.

However, by far the most shocking aspect of this entire report is that it was analyzed by someone named (I kid you not) Dr. Jennifer Manlove. That's not some sort of made-up porn name; a person who studies sex and is named Dr. Jennifer Manlove actually exists. Seriously, I couldn't make this up if I tried. [Read article]

"Mockingbirds echo rockin' sound of '80s

Think of it as the decade that just won't die.

We may be well into the 21st century but that 10-year span between 1980 and 1989 will not go quietly into the abyss. And if local cover band The Mockingbirds has anything to say about it, then the decade of Reagonomics, legwarmer chic and pre-Kabbalah Madonna will continue to live on.

The Mockingbirds have been around for seven years. Most of the original members of this band, however, moved to San Diego two years ago. Jason Claybaugh, lead singer and bassist, is the only original member who remains." [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]
