Regents seek UA president by March


Tucson regent Boice to lead search for next UA president

A Tucson regent will head the committee responsible for searching for the next university president to replace President Peter Likins when he retires in 2006.

egent Fred Boice, a three-year member of the Arizona Board of Regents, will chair the presidential search committee and select viable candidates for the UA's top position, which the regents must officially appoint.

Regent President Gary Stuart, who will announce the decision today at the regents' meeting in Tempe, said he chose Boice for his intelligence, discipline and relationship with the Tucson community. [Read article]

Baseball: Cats to battle Trojans for television audience


Lights, camera, baseball.

Coming off their worst weekend of the season, the No. 9 Arizona baseball team hosts No. 22 Southern California for a three-game series this weekend at Sancet Stadium with all three games being shown on national television.

The teams battle tonight at 7 on ESPNU, ESPN's new college sports channel, tomorrow at 1 p.m. on FSNA and taped delayed on FSN nationally, and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. on ESPN.

This follows a weekend in which the Wildcats (27-14, 10-2 Pacific 10 Conference) suffered their first three-game losing streak and winless weekend of the year after losing twice to UC Irvine and once at Sacramento State. [Read article]

Post hoc, ergo proctor hoc
photo It was a study in contrasts. Standing before the student body's academic and leadership elite, Arizona women's swim head coach Frank Busch was awed by the "impressive gene pool" in attendance at the UA's annual Evening of Excellence, even as students buzzed about a Sunday article in The New York Times that caricatured our university as nothing more than a springboard for anonymity, alcoholism or worse.

In a 6,000-word inquiry into the nature of public universities, education commentator John Merrow blithely reduced the UA to a "not particularly selective" university replete with "numbing lecture halls (of) 500 classmates" and meandering students that "are, for all intents and purposes, anonymous."

'American Dad' joins forces with 'Family Guy'

Before you go to bed tonight, pat yourself on the back for being a college student. Seth MacFarlane, creator and vocal star of "Family Guy" is in your debt ever since Fox resurrected the show this season.

"To me, the biggest audiences are colleges," MacFarlane said. "As far as the show being brought back, it was the adult 18-to-34 audience that did it and that's really the audience that we write for." [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]
