Program fees key for Architecture, Planning


The livelihood of a UA degree that avoided elimination last year may depend whether or not the Arizona Board of Regents approves a program fee tomorrow, which administrators call "key to the program's very survival."

Nearly 28 months after being placed on the academic chopping block because of the 2003 Focused Excellence initiative, the Planning Degree Program is facing a $700 fee for part-time planning students and a $1,400 for full-time planning students. [Read article]

Athlete of the Week: Softball pitcher hits career high


Junior pitcher Leslie Wolfe has thrived this season as the No. 2 Arizona softball team’s third starter. After making her last appearance March 3 against No. 3 California, Wolfe allowed only three hits in five innings of relief in Saturday’s 10-3 win over ASU and struck out 10, matching a career high. Wolfe is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in five appearances and leads the pitching staff with a .91 ERA in Pacific 10 Conference play.

Wolfe spoke with the Arizona Daily Wildcat before yesterday’s practice on earning coaches’ praise, dancing in the dugout and tossing around hockey pucks. [Read article]

Entropy in the political landscape

"Damn it, why does this always happen?" my friend said as he pulled a jumbled nest of guitar cords out of his bag. "No matter how neatly you put something away, it always ends up a huge mess."

Maybe there's a leprechaun that lives in his bag and tangles up the cords when he's not looking. But another culprit is just the fact that entropy - the measure of chaos and disorder - is ever increasing in our expanding universe. Things never want to stay the way they should. [Read article]

Exploring the female orgasm: coming to the point

Her body curls and clenches with tingles of pleasure, a feeling some UA women have yet to understand or experience.

Regardless, if a woman is exploring with the different types of orgasms, masturbating, or learning how to get off without faking it, experts agree being comfortable is essential for achieving an orgasm.

Though some women may feel like a victim of orgasmic dysfunction, or the inability to climax during sex, experts said this diagnosis is rare for young women. Instead of needing medical treatment, college-aged women can usually find orgasmic relief from different methods of arousal and self-discovery. [Read article]

Calling Crispin Glover's directorial debut "What is It?" disturbing is a start.

Calling it intelligent and ultimately thought provoking is the next step.

After that, the reactions could range from "absurd" to "obscene" or "absurdly obscene." Or "obscenely absurd," depending on the kind of films you like.

Glover - whose first big role was a teenaged George McFly in "Back to the Future" and later starred in features like "Willard" and "Bartelby" - will be in town starting tomorrow to support the weeklong run of his directorial debut "What is it?" at the Loft Cinema. [Read article]
