ASU entrepreneurs get a financial boost

Daniel Kessler is the founder of Angels with Attitude, one of 18 student startups being awarded by the Edson Entrepreneur Initiative.

From working with special needs kids to helping women combat domestic violence, 18 groups of ASU students are getting some help with a wide variety of entrepreneurial projects.

Each year, ASU's Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative awards $5,000 to $20,000 to student ventures and provides training and office space in the Initiative's facility located at the Brickyard on Mill Avenue.

This year's winners are being publicly announced today.

Campus clubs could win up to $3,000

The Undergraduate Student Government Senate is hoping more money will mean more involvement for student organizations on campus.

A new funding initiative passed Tuesday will allow the USG Senate to distribute up to $3,000 to one lucky campus club to help finance activities.

"It's designed to be a competition to showcase the best talent at ASU," said Zach Pirtle, a former senator for the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering who developed the initiative.

    Newly cut grass, the smell of hot dogs and kids toting baseball mitts are all signs of opening day at the ballpark. And tonight at 7, ASU will celebrate the start of its 48th season of baseball as it hosts Cal State Northridge at Packard Stadium.

    No. 16 ASU will be debuting a young team, starting just three juniors and no seniors. Junior outfielder Colin Curtis isn't worried.

    "The young guys are in there because they can play," he said.

    Modern Warriors

    On the cover
    John, 22, and Cheston, 21, Bailon share a bond only brothers have. They finish each other's sentences, yet can communicate without words. The pair, both veterans of the current war in Iraq and corporals in the Marine Corps Reserve, have done everything together since childhood -- climbing mountains, attending the same schools and sharing the same dream of joining the military.

    Theirs is a bond not even the horrors of war or distance from their desert home could destroy. The brothers grew up on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Shiprock, N.M., and they say they never fought with each other. Sibling rivalry doesn't exist for these two -- their Navajo religion and culture taught them only to respect and love each other.

    Fashion: Do and Do Not


    Wear large belts:
    A thick belt with a large buckle will kick-start any lackluster outfit. This trend looks best worn low across the hips on anything from jeans and a T-shirt to a skirt and cardigan. Basic blacks and browns look classicly cool when cinched at the waist over a slightly baggy dress or a button down dress shirt. -- Courtney Bonnell
