Opinion: No need to panic: Jacobs just a chip off the technological block
I'm not a very paranoid person. I believe the strange pair of albinos that paw at my window each night while moaning are lonely, not scary. Which is why when I heard of Derek Jacobs I didn't think much of it.

Opinion: Department of Defense's new freedom dangerous
When it comes to something as large as the War on Terrorism, every government agency wants a piece of the pie. The State Department wants to ensure that other's nations will diplomatically support our efforts.

Opinion: Escape to the West Valley, but try not to fall asleep
If life in the West Valley became any staler than it is right now, Arizona might have to realign state boundaries to make anything west of Central Avenue part of New Mexico -- that state has a vacancy for more boredom.

Close-knit swimmers look back
This year's edition of the ASU women's swimming and diving team can be summed up into one simple word family. You would be hard-pressed to find a closer group of athletes, as every woman who donned the maroon and gold during the record-breaking season is proud to have been part of the team.

Top of the Kee
The ASU quiz bowl team doesn't concern itself with traditional trivia fare like the atomic weight of Neptunium and the years during which the Han dyansty ruled China.

From a teacher's college of 33 students to a university that enrolls more than 50,000, ASU has grown quite a bit in its 117 years of existence. To commemorate the school's history, the ASU Alumni Association celebrated Founder's Day with an awards dinner at Old Main on Monday.

Warming up to the spandex warrior
It has been said that when he's not appearing as a correspondent on Comedy Central's Battlebots, or flying across the world to deliver punch lines to the masses, he's training eagles on his roof or slaving away in his underground workshop making bedside reading lamps.

Lost Souls
Two Valley murders bring transgendered Native Americans to light.

Forensics team alive and well with talent
If you mention to people that you compete in forensics, a funny look comes over their face, as if they're imagining a group of coroners in a room full of dead bodies racing to discover the cause of death for each one.

Born to Bionic Jive, baby
Although local band Bionic Jive signed to Interscope Records nearly two years ago and has opened for the likes of Nas, D12, Kottonmouth Kings and Digital Underground in support of their latest release, Armageddon Through Your Speakers, the group hasn't turned Hollywood on us just yet.

Something Corporate delivers something special with 'piano boy'
"Billy Joel never yelled 'Fuck you Jordan' at the end of his songs," McMahon said. "And it's just a wild guess, but I bet he never had to load/unload his own piano either."

Girl Repellant more than just ladies' men
It's a Saturday afternoon and three of the four members of Girl Repellent (bassist and vocalist Ben Vandermeer, lead vocalist and guitarist David Mulhstein and vocalist and guitarist Jordan Warner) are sitting in a Chili's Restaurant near campus, playfully arguing over who the real ladies' man of the group is.

New man on campus 'Wilder' than ever
Documenting the life and times of an average college student would not make for a successful film. Realizing this, writers Brent Goldberg and David T. Wagner came up with Van Wilder: Party Liaison, later renamed National Lampoon's Van Wilder.

Robin Williams battles with big purple rhino
A purple rhino teaching kiddies about please and thank yous, anger management and step-dad's adjustment period, marks the most ethical gimmick on children's television. The only catch? Smoochy's rival icon wants his head on a mantle at all costs.

Rainbow disconnection led to murders of transgenders
The two gay transgender Native Americans, who both lived their lives as women, found prejudice not only from those who oppose the gay lifestyle but from those who live it as well, proving that while gay and lesbians are "coming out" in droves, they still have some opening up to do.
