Month begins awareness events


For the month of April, the UA Disability Resource Center is putting on six events on campus in hope of spreading awareness about the disabled community.

The month-long awareness program, "Disability Reframed: Challenging Concepts of Normality," has been organized annually for the last two years.

"We want people thinking about what disability is and what it isn't," said DRC program coordinator Jeanne Nicholls. "Disabilities shouldn't be seen as scary, or with pity, but just another characteristic of a person, such as being tall or having brown hair." [Read article]

Wildcats' scrimmage tomorrow full-contact, open to general public


The Arizona football team has its first full-pad action since November at 9:15 a.m. Saturday at the Jimenez Practice Field, the first such workouts of 2005.

"We may have a team scrimmage with full contact in pads," Arizona head coach Mike Stoops said. "We'll just be running through 20 to 30 plays."

The workout, Arizona's third of the 2005 spring season, is the first open to the public.

The Wildcats will run through some of the many sets in place for the fall and will likely complete the morning with an offense-against-defense scrimmage. [Read article]

Cleaning services promote inequality, should be banned

It was Wednesday morning, and dorm residents and greeks alike expected to awake to the reassuring sound of whirring vacuums and the pleasant humming of cleaning maids, proof that all was well in the warm cocoon of the young and affluent. But there would be no humming on that sad morning, and it can all be blamed on everyone's favorite villain: the UA administration.

"I mean, I was, like, stripped of my dignity here. My clothes were all left where I had thrown them, my tanning goggles are totally lost and all of my Ugg boots are out of order," said one sophomore sorority girl who wished to remain anonymous (she glared at me when I suggested the alias "Deep Throat," insisting that her sorority "isn't called that anymore").

Mother always said, "Don't play with your food!" If she'd known it could be as entertaining as "Cookin'," she probably would have made an exception.

Having toured more than two dozen countries since its creation in Seoul, Korea in 1997, "Cookin'" is a combination plate of slapstick, percussion, martial arts, dance and loads of fun.

The premise: Four chefs are under the gun to complete a feast for Ms. Lee and Mr. Kim's wedding banquet. Led by Master Chef (Gon Ho Kim), Hot Sauce (Eun Ji Kim), Sexy Food Dude (Byung Joon Park) and Nephew (Sung Joong Byun), the chefs manage to create a wedding cake, bulgoki (Korean BBQ), dumplings and a duck dish in about an hour.

Land surfing: Longboarders invade the UA

There's nothing new about skateboarding, but the elite few who ride them around Tucson are getting some competition from a new breed of riders.

Longboards, a kind of hybrid cross between a surfboard and a skateboard, have been making a comeback since the 1990s and are slowly, but surely becoming ever more visible on the UA campus.

Though most skateboarders tend to be linked into the high school age group, some veteran skateboarders now attend the UA and even partake of the longboard phenomenon. [Read article]
