'Lack of support' drives some RAs, CAs away from Res Life system

Editor's Note: This is the first in a two-part series regarding issues facing the University of Arizona's Residence Life. Part two of the series runs tomorrow.

On the surface, the University of Arizona department of Residence Life appears to be functioning without much headache.

It has added campus-area apartment complexes to deal with the realization that 700 more students applied to live in residence halls this academic year compared to last year.

Women are insane - and now we know why

Most males have come to the conclusion that women act a little crazy once a month independently of drug companies' sales pitches, but now we can diagnose them with a specific disorder, rather than just a general malaise. That disorder is pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder, and, by sheer coincidence, it was discovered by drug companies just as they invented a cure for it. Now, rather than suffering through the debilitating disease that has plagued women since somewhere south of the dawn of time, women can take a pill to make it all go away.

Fast facts: Wednesday April 4, 2001

Beer is 92 percent water.

Beer accounts for nearly 87 percent of all alcohol beverages consumed in the United States. The average American drinks approximately 23 gallons of beer every year.

Miller Brewing, founded 21 years before the first Budweiser was brewed in 1876, is the world's third-largest beer producer after Anheuser-Busch and Heineken.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and William Penn brewed beer on their estates.

It was the accepted practice in Babylonia 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the "honey month" or what we know today as the "honeymoon."
