In the politically charged climate of major collegiate athletics, perhaps the most important issue faced by athletic departments around the country is ensuring gender equity.

This seemed to be a balancing act the University of Arizona athletic department managed well, considering that it finished 8th in this year in the Sears Cup, the annual award given to the most successful athletic department in the nation.

The award is based upon the aggregate success of all the sports programs on campus - both men's and women's.

UA a good model for coexistence of religious institutions

The public school system, even in its branches of higher education as in universities such as our own, has endured a rocky history with religion.

Fast Facts: Tuesday June 27th, 2001

Farts make noise as a result of vibrations of the anal opening.

One cow farts out over 100 pounds (48 kilograms) of methane each year.

On average, a person produces about half a liter of fart gas per day, distributed over an average of about 14 daily farts.

People still fart shortly after death.

Beans contain sugars that humans cannot digest. Therefore, when these sugars reach our intestines, the bacteria go wild and make lots of gas.

Farts can be ignited because they contain methane (usually) and hydrogen, both of which are flammable gases.

Farts tend to burn with a blue or yellow flame.

Turtles and snakes fart - and the smell has been said to be incredibly bad.
