Offensive assignment? Just skip it

Professors would have to offer alternative assignments to students who find course materials offensive, under proposed state legislation.

Senate Bill 1331 would let students at state universities and community colleges receive alternate work without academic penalty if their regular assignments conflict with personal moral and religious beliefs.

Interfaith homeless shelter offers Tempe transients good night's sleep

Rod Hansen said he usually sleeps outside in the dirt, bushes or anywhere else hidden -- where he can rest peacefully without police bothering him.

But on Saturday night, Hansen, 35, had a comfortable blanket to sleep in on the floor of a Tempe church.

Hansen, who has been homeless since June, was able to sleep indoors through the Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program, started last month.

Lack of competition means less campaigning

Students walking around campus might have noticed fewer campaign signs during this year's election season.

The Undergraduate Student Government Senate had no contested elections this year, so many senators said they didn't feel the need to advertise for their candidacy.

W Hoops: Devils bounced early from Pac-10s

With a Pac-10 Tournament championship appearance riding on one inbound pass, No. 11 ASU's leading scorer Kristen Kovesdy could be found cheering for her teammates -- on the bench.

It was a decision ASU coach Charli Turner Thorne may now be regretting after falling to UCLA, 60-59, in the semifinal game at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Baseball: ASU dominates, Davis hits second grand slam

Some teams might use youth as an excuse for underachieving. ASU uses youth to explain why it's won nine out of ten games, including a three-game sweep over Auburn this weekend.

One of those young players is freshman Ike Davis, who has been an RBI machine for the Sun Devils. Davis had eight RBIs in the series and his second grand slam in as many games in Friday night's contest.

The waiting room at Massage Elite in Tempe.
As Sam Friedman walks into Massage Elite, he doesn't know what to expect. A neon "Asian" sign shines out the window, illuminating the dark plaza. Another small sign reads "Open 9 to midnight, 365 days."

Friedman, a male SPM reporter, admits that he is nervous about being sent to check out an unconfirmed report -- that the massage practice offers not just massages but sexual favors in exchange for money.

Friedman takes a step into the empty waiting room. Curtains drawn across the windows make him hardly visible to the outside world. A small, framed menu hangs on the wall, listing Massage Elite's services. A half-hour massage is $40, three-quarter hour is $50 and one hour is $60. The practice also offers a twenty-minute milk and salt bath for $25.

Local Limelight: Q & A with Bodhisattva

Bodhisattva is going places. Literally. Its travel schedule is insane -- the band is going to play at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, this March, has a mini-tour planned for April and an East Coast tour planned for summer.

Bodhisattva consists of Justin Cory on guitar and vocals and Shane Sittig on drums and vocals.

V-Day: Taboo Talk

It's not every weekend that you find a group of diverse women talking about their vaginas. But thanks to ASU's V-Day and Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues," women on campus are getting more comfortable with their most intimate part.
