CAMPUS NEWS
'A' Mountain not safe from Wildcats
Under the guise of darkness, I made my way up A Mountain Tuesday night to see how well our A was being guarded. It was 6:45 p.m. and already pitch black. A few runners were out for an evening jog, but ASU students should be thankful there were no UA students around - they would have a great opportunity to paint the A. It was pitch black and nobody was guarding the A.

Professor lectures about terrorism, cultural understanding
The man who helped establish intercultural communication studies at ASU lectured about cultural understanding Tuesday night in the Memorial Union. Dr. Nemi C. Jain, a native of India and professor in the Hugh Downs School of Communication, spoke about terrorism, hate crimes and the misunderstandings between cultures.

ENTERTAINMENT
CD Review
This is the disc where fantasies are made. A renowned sexy Spanish singer who insists, "You can run, you can hide but you can't escape my love," has nothing to worry about. Once the CD starts, it is easy to want to stick around.

'Novocaine' numbs viewers with grisly scenes, few laughs
The movie is pegged as a comedy/thriller with Steve Martin in a role completely separate from any of his comedic performances to date. He portrays a dentist, Frank Sangster, who lives a seemingly perfect life. He has his own practice, a modern, lavish home and Jean Noble (Laura Dern), who is his dental hygienist by day and Barbie-esque fiancé who thrives on perfection by night.



'Harry Potter' uses magic to convert book to film
It's déjà vu all over again for the people who waited in line for hours to purchase the Harry Potter books as they were released. Only before, you were at least guaranteed the people you were stuck waiting with were either smart enough to read, or had a distant relative who did.



Chris Evans plays high school jock in teen spoof film
American Pie meets She's All That meets The Breakfast Club meets Cruel Intentions plus countless references to other teen movies from the 80s to today are the basis for the spoof comedy Not Another Teen Movie.

Artist turns dry cleaner for Coen Brothers' film
Jon Polito, who stars in the Coen brothers' latest film, The Man Who Wasn't There, works 16-hour days, feels constant pressure to reinvent himself and wishes he could live a normal, less selfish lifestyle.

Restaurants cater to vegetarians
Much of what is considered vegetarian cuisine often has roots in another culture — maybe it's because other cultures don't emphasize meat as much, or maybe it's because Americans are too picky about their own foods, like hotdogs or hamburgers, to try vegetarian counterparts.

Eat your GREENS


Try Azifah, a blend of whole brown lentils, green peppers and spices, or Fosolia, spiced string beans cooked with carrots and garlic. Or sample a little of everything with the vegetarian combination, a platter that combines five different vegetarian options.

Grocery store know-how makes vegetarian cooking easy
Eating vegetarian at home creates an additional set of problems. Most of us are happy to be served a plate of steaming tofu at our favorite restaurant, but when it comes to preparing the stuff in our own kitchens, we shy away from that slimy soybean block.



Long Island comic counts on everyday humor
Maryellen Hooper has some stories to tell. A Long Island native who grew up mostly in Tampa, Fla., Maryellen had done everything from hairdressing to being a human billboard on Wall Street before breaking into comedy in 1985.

Vegetarians forego meat for health, moral reasons
We have all known that obnoxious vegetarian who was hell-bent on converting the world to the depths of alfalfa-sprout consumption, but maybe there are some non-obnoxious vegetarians out there too.

Veggie food goes down easy
I had toyed with the habit in high school but eventually abandoned it after growing tired of eating pasta with margarine every night (I didn't know how to cook and my mom refused to make a second dinner to accommodate my strange eating habits).

Bill Shannon "Weightless" at Gammage
He glided across the stage as if on skates in time to the music, weaving around unseen objects and reversing direction on a whim. On Sunday night, Gammage Auditorium hosted Bill Shannon and his troupe of hip-hop dancers, the Step Fenz.
