UA to enroll Mexican grads

The expansion of a 25-year-old agreement will bring up to 100 doctoral students from Mexico to the UA next fall, officials said.

Cats primed for preseason debut


Members of the Arizona men's basketball team have been battling hard against one another for the past three weeks in practice, and tonight they finally get a chance to go against another opponent.

The Wildcats play host to Sonoma State tonight at 7:30 in McKale Center in their first exhibition game of the season.

Torture, integrity don't mix


The Bush administration and Sen. John McCain are like a couple of co-workers who have been through a bad breakup but still have to work together amicably in the same office building.

Although both parties have contended on numerous occasions that their ties with one another are friendly and strong, the two have often butted heads, and the history behind the relationship is full of the sort of drama that should be reserved for another utterly mindless, yet helplessly captivating, episode of "Laguna Beach."

An ailing king. An irresponsible and callous young heir. Threats of rebellion and treacherous competitors plying for a throne that has already been usurped. This is the world of “Henry IV Parts I & II,” one of Shakespeare’s historical plays. It is in this setting that Shakespeare recreates the atmosphere of England struggling to assert itself after the murder of the innocent Richard II by Henry IV. Civil war looms from all sides and Henry, despite poor health, attempts to hold together his country and prepare his seemingly unreliable son Hal to take over in his stead. [Read article]

Are you scared yet?

That time of year is approaching once again. The days are no longer endless, and tank tops are being replaced with long sleeves. But along with chilly nights comes one juicy holiday.

Ghosts and goblins are not just a thing of our childhood. In fact, Halloween seems to get better as we reach our adolescence. We are no longer restricted to a two-hour window of trick-or-treating and parents forcing us to bed with the ultimate sugar high. Now, Halloween is yet another reason to party. [Read article]
