Graduate student dies at SRC

An ASU graduate student died Friday at the Student Recreation Complex, becoming the second student to die on the Tempe campus in two weeks. An undergraduate student died just before the start of the semester in a campus residence hall.

Art graduate student Benjamin Maggos, 24, passed out and fell while using a treadmill Friday afternoon at the SRC. SRC staff and Tempe fire paramedics attempted to resuscitate Maggos, but he was pronounced dead at 2 p.m. at Tempe St. Luke's Hospital.

Campus reaches critical phase in measles outbreak

ASU health officials will recommend this week that 1,173 students be excluded from campus because they have not been vaccinated or supplied proof of immunization.

"There are hundreds of students that need to provide documentation," said Dr. Gary Septon, interim director of the Student Health and Wellness Center. "If [students] can't do that, there's no harm in getting an MMR [shot]. It's perfectly safe with no side effects."

Second-half collapse sinks Devils

The crowd was quieted Sunday, but not surprised. Almost everyone at Wells Fargo Arena knew it was coming.

The ASU men's basketball team collapsed -- more predictably than a toddler's stack of Lincoln Logs. This time, the downfall was quick. There was no doubt about when a close game started to slip away.

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.
