UA, College of Medicine ranked at the top in Hispanic outreach


The UA and its College of Medicine were ranked at the top among the nation's best schools when it comes to Hispanic outreach, a recognition that reflects the university's aim to increase diversity on campus, officials said.

Mike Caplinger, a research supervisor with Hispanic Business Magazine, said there were five criteria used to rate the schools, like comparing the number of Hispanic students enrolled in the program, the number of Hispanics on the faculty and the services provided for Hispanic students.

Arizona faces USC O-line with Tucson tie


Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart is a great player - just ask Arizona football head coach Mike Stoops, who in spring said even then he eclipsed Utah's Alex Smith, the NFL Draft's overall No. 1 pick in April.

But as with any great quarterback, a great offensive line sits in front of the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner, anchored by junior center Ryan Kalil.

Kalil, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound Corona, Calif., native, is the son of Frank Kalil, an Arizona center from 1980-1982, and nephew of Tucson businessman George Kalil. [Read article]

Pop it like it's hot


Lately, many students on campus have been acting in an inexplicable and unjustifiable manner. Defying all conventional laws of judgment and physics, they have managed to alter their clothing in an obnoxious way.

I am referring, of course, to the trend of popping the collar - flipping the collar of the polo shirt in a daring and gravity-defying move of bravado. Like a male bull pawing and snorting, this action effectively lets everyone know who the boss is and who is in control. [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?

Chances are that making classic dismemberment movie scenes titillating hasn't crossed your mind, but for the SuicideGirls that represents one of their best acts in their upcoming burlesque tour. [Read article]

Season's fashion trends tend toward relaxed, femine looks

Fashion is a temperamental, unexplainable beast. It's quite the phenomenon to think that people will dress in the same style without an explicit agreement.

Take for example the flappers of the '20s or the disco, glam rock era of the '70s or whatever the hell they were thinking in the '80s.

The unspoken group assent to style is inexplicable as far as trying to find its source. All we can do is observe the aftereffects. In regard to this fall fashion season, here are a few of the things that we've all somehow implicitly agreed to. [Read article]
