Regents hear progress on higher education redesign

A study group looking into the redesign of the Arizona higher education system announced it was ready to move to Phase II of the study at the Arizona Board of Regents meeting at ASU Thursday.

In response to enrollment that is expected to skyrocket in coming years, regents began planning in June to restructure higher education in Arizona. The board received 18 proposals for the redesign and created a study group to evaluate them.

Fraternities could catch tax break

One bill making its way through the Arizona Legislature could make seven ASU fraternities exempt from property taxes.

Senate bill 1082, introduced by Sen. Dean Martin, R-Chandler, would apply to Alpha Drive fraternities, located off University Drive, north of McAllister Avenue, that own their property. It would change their status with the Internal Revenue Service and protect them against taxation.

In "Million Dollar Baby," actress Hilary Swank plays a stubborn woman who will stop at nothing to establish herself in the boxing profession.

The movie, and what trainers say is an all-time high enrollment for female competitors, have taught the public two things: one, Hilary Swank can kick ass and two, male-dominated sports like boxing and Ju-jitsu aren't just boys' clubs anymore.

Girly drinks and girly men

"Sugar and spice and everything nice. That's what little girls are made of." This classic American poem that every mother repeats to her daughter is often thought to be an indicator of the sweet nature of females.

In youth, it begins by playing with dolls. During teenage years, it progresses to wearing perfume and painting toenails. But as girls enter adulthood, this same sweetness becomes the bottom line for drink choices, which is why the current assortments of sweeter, alternative alcoholic beverages have become widely known as girly drinks.
