UMC: 'Cool' new option for patients


University Medical Center's department of emergency medicine is participating in a "cool" new study that may mean good news for victims of cardiac arrest.

UMC is one of many hospitals across the country participating in RESCUE, an 18-month study sponsored by Medivance, which examines the benefits of lowering body temperature with a machine versus traditional means of lowering temperature with ice packs and cold water blankets.

Traditional methods include the use of cold-water blankets and ice packs, as well as constantly checking the patient's temperature to ensure the body reaches the correct temperature. [Read article]

Football notes: Willie's first wobbles


After Husky thumping, frosh phenom Tuitama focusing on Devils

The pedestal was built so high, one couldn't help but feel that when freshman quarterback Willie Tuitama finally did have a bad game, it would be a long fall.

Tuitama suffered his worst outing in four appearances on Saturday at Arizona Stadium, throwing three interceptions and losing two fumbles in the Arizona football team's 38-14 loss to Washington.

As chagrined students seeking out needed funds from the already dire financial aid situation, it's time for us to discover the true use of our tuition money. But, more than that, we must fight for our right to receive a proper education from an entity that views us more as commodities than actual individuals. [Read article]

HBO's "Sex and the City" has been off the air since 2004, and we are no longer able to tune in to lives of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda on Sunday evenings. Yes, the DVDs are out there and TBS has been showing the edited reruns during the week, but it is just not the same. Girl bonding entertainment is lacking these days.

You might, however, be able to get your fix of female saga on stage. Students from the School of Theatre Arts are putting on "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress," a play that reflects the lives and relationships of women. [Read article]
