Hallman lobbying Ariz. legislature for statewide meth law


THE STATE PRESS
Hallman meets with Tempe City Council. Opposing a city ordinance increases Tempe's pull in state legislation.
Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman is opposing a city ordinance restricting access to products used for methamphetamine production.

Hallman said at a City Council meeting Thursday that the ordinance would harm efforts to get a similar statewide law enacted.

If Tempe were to pass its own regulations, the city would lose its ability to influence the state Legislature, Hallman said in an interview Thursday.

Regents increase financial aid

The Arizona Board of Regents voted to increase the amount of tuition money set aside for financial aid to $208.2 million for all three state universities for fiscal year 2006 at their meeting in the Memorial Union Thursday.

The total financial aid from tuition for fiscal year 2005 was $114.6 million.

Keyboards breed bacteria

Every day in the Computing Commons, about 2,500 students use the same 344 computers. And the papers they print may not be the only thing they're walking away with -- those computers could make them sick.

Bacteria and viruses can live on keyboards for up to 72 hours, said Chuck Gerba, a professor of environmental microbiology at UA and the author of a 2002 study on bacteria levels in the workplace.

Different Strokes


On the cover
A scattering of regular patrons mills about the dimly lit room, stopping to chat at the edge of the small stage. Some wander into the side room to view the black and white photos of women in g-strings and oil paintings of two nude women in seductive embraces.

The Paper Heart gallery is calm on this third Thursday of the month. This is the night where the artists who currently have their work on display at the gallery come together, chatting casually at the beer and wine bar. Chatting with them is the gallery's owner, who seems part artist, part rocker with his straight, dark, shoulder-length hair and his bright red jacket.

Are you a moron? Your professors probably think so.

When preparing for classes at the beginning of a new semester, a tool for picking the right teacher is Rate My Professor (www.ratemyprofessor.com), which hosts user reviews on instructors' teaching styles. The blunt nature of critiquing -- everything from "her class is my naptime" to "his notes are immensely helpful" to "way hot" -- aid students in getting an idea of what teachers to take for their classes.

Sex: Banging in the Bathroom

Although it is a slow night at Maloney's Tavern in Tempe, a small line is beginning to form outside the women's restroom as four women impatiently wait for their turns. A man walking into the men's room across from them yells, "Hey is there sex in there?" His cackles echo as he closes the door to the men's room.
