First show of the program focuses on Campaign Arizona, faculty

A new television program called "UA Journal: A Conversation with the President" premiered last night on KUAT-TV to raise UA awareness in the Arizona community.

The program featured a conversation between University of Arizona President Peter Likins and Janet Bingham, the vice president for university advancement.

The show was taped in early January but was aired last night at 6 p.m. The topics discussed were Campaign Arizona and the phenomenon known as "brain drain." It also featured a question and answer session with various members of the UA community.

Likins said the show is an effort to reach beyond the campus to increase financial possibilities. However, he pointed out the show was not a fund-raiser.

"It is a friend-raiser," Likins said. "We want to help the public understand and value what we do."

Pickaprof is no the answer

The UA has been offered the services of, a Web site that posts teacher evaluations and grades. The UA wants the cite to pay the UA to use its information.

On This Day: Monday January 22, 2001

In 1879, at the Battle of Isandhlwana in present-day South Africa, the British army suffered one of its worst defeats of the 19th century against a regiment of Zulus armed primarily with spears and cowhide shields.

In 1901, the death of Queen Victoria ended an era in which most of her British subjects knew no other monarch. Her reign, spanning more than a half century, the longest in British history, saw immense growth of the British empire.

In 1905, the Russian Revolution began when Czarist troops opened fire on a peaceful group of workers marching to the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg to petition their grievances to Czar Nicholas II.
