In 15th year, Campus Rec to exercise right to party


Free massages, music, food part of celebration

Since its opening in 1990, the Student Recreation Center was projected by its former director to be a successful project for students to turn to in developing a healthy college lifestyle and to be a distraction away from the pressures of school.

Now, 15 years later, Juliette Moore, director of campus recreation, said she can't believe the success story the Rec Center has written for itself. [Read article]

Frosh calls UA 'dream come true'


It's a question eager basketball players at the Student Recreation Center would love to hear: "Are you ready to walk on?"

Unfortunately for them, David Bagga, a freshman walk-on for the Arizona men's basketball team, has already heard it.

The Foothill Ranch, Calif., native said the phrase, uttered by Arizona head coach Lute Olson, caught Bagga off guard as he vacated his plane at Tucson International Airport in June.

Bagga attended Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, Calif., and played for a team that produced past Wildcats Reggie Geary, Miles Simon and Dylan Rigdon. But his senior year, Bagga averaged only one point, 1.5 rebounds and 0.3 blocks. [Read article]

Protesters' illusion of power


End Guantanamo Bay hunger strike?

Folding to a mob is the greatest sign of weakness an entity can show, whether it be a government or a company. At Guantanamo Bay prison, hunger strikes have become the preferred method of protest to show the government and outside organizations that the conditions of the prison are substandard.

These hunger strikes, like most methods of protests, are nothing more than an illusion of power. They cannot accomplish anything if the group protested against shows strong character and does not bend to the whims of the protesters. [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]
