Oppression issues seen in tunnel


“Nigger,” “faggot” and “cunt” were some of the identities written on nametags that students wore around their necks as they were marched through the Tunnel of Oppression last night.

The tunnel event, which is in its eighth year at the UA, is an interactive tour that leads visitors through themed rooms depicting instances of abuse, hate crime and prejudice throughout history.

As students entered the basement of Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall they were violently greeted by a swarm of actors waving protest signs and screaming racist chants like “Hell no, you must go back to Mexico.” [Read article]

Arizona tuning up for regular season against Team Georgia


The Arizona men’s basketball team has had weeks to prepare for the start of the 2005-06 regular season, and the final touches will be made tonight when the Wildcats take on Team Georgia in McKale Center today at 7 p.m.

“I think this is a perfect team for us to play,” said Arizona head coach Lute Olson. “It will give us a good read on what we’re doing and what kind of adjustments we’ll have to make before playing Kansas next Monday.”

The Wildcats are coming off a 103-63 win against Sonoma State on Nov. 9 that included impressive play by seniors Chris Rodgers (5-of-5 3-point shooting) and Hassan Adams (13 points). [Read article]

Love, hate and Facebook


If you’re not on by now, then you’re either protesting it deliberately in an attempt to avoid doing what everybody else is doing, or you’re afraid that stalkers will use it to come after you.

What started out as a simple way for university students to connect with one another online has now become a pillar of the college social scene.

Despite the fact that so many of us squander valuable study time in order to be connected to the dynamic social machine that is Facebook, it is in fact a valuable tool in a world that continues to perpetually thirst for information. [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]

Band Day brings out best in Southwest marching bands

With reality television all the rage, showdown competitions seem to be an everyday occurrence. There is the dance off, the sing off and the band off. OK, maybe you have never seen a band off, unless you will admit to actually watching "Drumline," but now you can.

The UA's Pride of Arizona marching band will be hosting its 52nd annual Glassman Foundation University of Arizona Band Day on Saturday, where high schools from all over the Southwest region come to "bring it" - marching band style. [Read article]
