    Joona Puhakka prepares for a dive during a meet at Mona Plummer Aquatic Center Saturday.
    Sixteen years ago, senior Joona Puhakka decided that he was going to be an Olympic diver. Unfazed by the mammoth goal of earning the right to compete against the world's best, the ambitious 7-year-old from Helsinki, Finland, never wavered from his pursuit of greatness.

    Eleven years later, Puhakka was selected to compete for his country in Sydney for the 2000 Summer Olympic Games. "For me, when I went to Sydney, it was a huge step to understand my ability and how good I can be," he said.

    To Shannon Fabian, working out is an obsession that started in high school. He says he started bulking up to overcome his lackluster performance on the track team and his social short-comings. Soon he became infatuated with the goal of getting bigger. Grueling hours of torturous lifting became an escape from reality as well as a daily ritual for Fabian. He says he was "saved," by the gym.

    Religion: Darwin vs. Dogma

    With the latest classroom scandal involving scientific theory, and trials in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Kansas and California, the conflict between religion and science is again under the glare of public scrutiny.

    But the inherent struggle between the two disciplines is always on the minds of researchers and professors at ASU's Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict, says the Center's assistant director, Carolyn Forbes.
