Deaf students struggle during walkout

Marisa Espinoza sat at the front of her 1:40 p.m. personal finance class staring at the notes on the overhead and the professor's lips.

But she could hear nothing but mumbling, and there was no sign language interpreter present to help.

ASU interpreters staged a walkout Monday, leaving some deaf and hard of hearing students without interpreters. The walkout came in response to low pay that they said is well below rates offered elsewhere in the Valley.

Crow's salary among highest in nation

Among U.S. public university professors this year, Crow ranks at No. 13.

Leak floods Physical Science Center

Steamed Internet users in the Bateman Physical Science Center can blame a ruptured pipe for network outages that occurred shortly after 3 p.m. on Monday.

A steam leak resulted in an estimated $50,000 in damage, flooding the equipment room located in the basement of the B-wing. The leak damaged a server, causing wings B, C, D, E, and G to lose Internet access.

ASU hockey captain Adam Blossey practices Monday at Oceanside Ice Arena in Tempe. Blossey was selected to play for the USA in the 2005 World University Games in Austria.
When the final buzzer sounded for this weekend’s games, the results were the same for the Sun Devil hockey club, but the two matchups against Utah State couldn’t have been more different.

On Friday night, the No. 9 Sun Devils (7-1) cruised to an 8-2 victory over the Aggies, making the most of their scoring opportunities against their Division-II opponent. However, Saturday night was a different story for ASU, as the team struggled to find the net, but still managed to leave Oceanside Arena with a 2-1 win.

Men's basketball to take on EA Sports All-Stars tonight

After taking care of business against an undersized and less talented Canadian team, the ASU men's basketball team will face a more competitive team made up of former collegiate players, as it takes on the EA Sports All-Stars in the Sun Devils' exhibition finale tonight.

Tonight's game will serve as a final tune-up for the Sun Devils before their regular season opener on Sunday afternoon against Jackson State.

Review: Putting the super in superhero

Using actors who up to this point I thought were either dead or long out of the acting business, "The Incredibles" stomps out the competition for clever kids' movies, including "The Polar Express."

In this animated adventure, Pixar creates a family flick that even us mature people could appreciate. Actors like Craig T. Nelson from the old TV series "Coach," Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson and Jason Lee help create this superhero hit that will be among Pixar's top films.
