Indecent exposure streak hits campus

Six cases of indecent exposure were reported to ASU police last month, but no arrests have been made and officials are still looking for a suspect.

The Department of Public Safety is investigating three reports of indecent exposure that occurred late at night between Jan. 18 and 20, said ASU spokesman Manny Romero. Two incidents occurred near Adelphi Commons, and the other occurred in Parking Structure 5.

Sophomore outfielder Colin Curtis drove in freshman center fielder J.J. Sferra with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead ASU to a wild 11-10 come-from-behind win over the Aggies on Monday night at Packard Stadium.

ON THE COVER
With her veiled hair, modest clothing, and olive skin, pre-business junior Rema Nasaredden knows a thing or two about stereotyping.

Nasaredden says she was helping the Muslim Students Association at an informational table during the presidential debate when "this total right-wing Christian straight out of Texas walks up. He starts telling us how great it is that the U.S. is in Iraq and how what they are doing there is beautiful," she says.

Wrist-bandits

The craze started with Nike. In 2004, the sprawling athletic company began manufacturing rubber wristbands for basketball players embossed with words such as Player, Baller and Respect.

The bands became officially mainstream last May when famous bicyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong teamed with Nike to make a wristband solely to benefit cancer research. It is yellow and says, "Livestrong."
