In the wild

During the day in Canyonlands, Utah, the only sound is of hiking boots pounding on rocks and dirt. At night, the silence is deafening. This past weekend, three ASU students and an alumna went on a four-day, 30-mile trek in Canyonlands, an intricate network of ridges and canyons that can often seem like a maze.

New institute gets $15 million boost

ASU officials announced Monday that the University is receiving a $15 million grant from Julie Ann Wrigley, a member of the ASU Foundation's board of directors and the president and CEO of Wrigley Investments LLC.

The grant will help fund the International Institute of Sustainability, which was approved Friday at the Arizona Board of Regents meeting at UA in Tucson.

The institute will replace ASU's Center for Environmental Studies, which the regents disbanded at the same meeting.

Arizona election results certified

State officials certified the Nov. 2 election results Tuesday, clearing the way for ballot propositions, including the controversial Proposition 200, to become law.

Secretary of State Jan Brewer, Gov. Janet Napolitano, state Attorney General Terry Goddard and Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles E. Jones signed the election certification Tuesday at the secretary of state's office in Phoenix.

After easily disposing of the Jackson State Tigers in its home opener, the ASU men's basketball team will face a much tougher test tonight when it takes on the Delaware State Hornets at Wells Fargo Arena.

The Sun Devils were successful in their opener thanks to the play of junior Ike Diogu and senior Steve Moore, who scored 24 and 17 points respectively. Diogu's performance extended his NCAA double-digit scoring streak to 60.

Unsung tight end blocks the competition

Lee Burghgraef can count the number of passes he has caught this season on one hand.

But the junior tight end has played about as much as any Sun Devil in the past three seasons, and he is one of the primary reasons his teammates are able to make catches and gain yards that can't be measured on extremities.

Burghgraef has given new meaning to the phrase "was all over the field" -- a cliche typically reserved for players who top the stat sheet.

Feeling their way

Ben Bloomgren is tired of people trying to be politically correct about his disability. "I'm not 'visually impaired;' I'm blind," says Bloomgren while seated on his bed in his dorm room. "Just call a spade, a spade." Bloomgren, 22, is one of 42 students on ASU's main campus who are legally blind.

Sleeping in

Lucid dreaming, the art and the science of becoming conscious within a dream, is so realistic that it is difficult to discern from waking life. Some people lucid dream naturally and understand the freedom, and exhilaration that a dream like this entails. Most people, though, have never experienced a lucid dream.

Your world

With the election two weeks in the past, political pundits have hung up their hats and band-wagoners have hopped along to find their next cause. All the while, social struggles working for justice continue. During the Oct. 13 debate at ASU, students picked up signs at their respective tables and chanted their respective chants, and that was the extent of popular political dialogue.
