UA women pose for Playboy


Few Wildcats bared it all for Playboy yesterday as they came to Tucson for the first of three days looking for women to pose for their annual college edition.

In contrast to the UA turnout, Playboy Producer Eden Orfanos said they were unable to see all the women at Arizona State University who wanted to take part in the "Girls of the Pac-10" issue.

"We just came from ASU, we had 200 girls call," Orfanos said. "We couldn't see everybody."

Orfanos said 150 Sun Devils showed up to Playboy's off-campus photo shoot. [Read article]

Baseball: Cats to play Sidewinders for charity


The No. 6 Arizona baseball team takes a break from its schedule to play an exhibition game against the Tucson Sidewinders tonight.

The Wildcats and Sidewinders play at 6:05 p.m. at Tucson Electric Park, 2500 E. Ajo Way.

General admission tickets cost $3 with all proceeds donated to buy books for preschoolers and help fund a study of local families' child care needs.

"We're excited to be a part of this game," head coach Andy Lopez said in a press release. "It's for a great cause and hopefully the community will come out and support not only it, but two of our local baseball teams as well." [Read article]

Obesity: fighting the soft underbelly of America

An ancient Chinese proverb reads, "Dig the well before you are thirsty." Applying that wisdom to the current American obesity problem, the saying might read: "Change your lifestyle before you are dead."

Obesity - often defined as being more than 30 percent over one's ideal body weight - matters because obese people are at a heightened risk of developing many serious medical problems including heart disease, stroke, type two or non-insulin dependent diabetes, sleep apnea and various types of cancer.

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]
