Women's Plaza dedicated


Honor and support were the overwhelming themes at a ceremony Friday morning meant to celebrate the women who contributed to and are remembered in the Women's Plaza of Honor.

Organizers predicted about 400 people came out for the dedication, which featured Gov. Janet Napolitano, who spoke about the importance of honoring and appreciating women, and the Tohono O'dham singers, a mariachi band from Tucson High School.

The Women's Studies Advisory Council sponsored the $818,000 plaza, which is located next to Centennial Hall, through donations by community members. [Read article]

Commentary: Arizona needs to take Saturday's lessons into second half of season


Will Rogers once said, "The trouble with using experience as your guide is that sometimes the final exam comes first, then the lesson."

Never has a quote more aptly applied to the Arizona football team, which Saturday suffered a 28-0 loss to No. 10 California.

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops' ongoing rebuilding process might appear to have hit a snag on the surface with three losses - two to Top-25 teams - and a road contest at two-time defending national champion and top-ranked Southern California less than a week away. [Read article]

The burning question: Legalize marijuana?


Blame drug suppliers, not users.

Marijuana shouldn't be illegal because it is dangerous (it's not), and it shouldn't be illegal because it's a "gateway drug" (it's not). It should be illegal because of what it does to Latin America.

It is an undeniable fact that every time someone buys marijuana, they are helping to fund a horrifically bloody civil war in Latin America that's been going on for decades. Thanks to Americans' drug money, it shows no signs of stopping. [Read article]

Pierced and tattooed beauties of the SuicideGirls breathe new life into stripping

Do you remember that scene from "Reservoir Dogs" where Mr. Blonde cuts off the cop's ear to the tune of "Stuck in the Middle With You?" Have you ever thought about making that sexy?

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]
