Speaker: Katrina highlights race issues

America needs to re-examine a policy of reparations for slavery and racism following the Hurricane Katrina disaster, a leading black-studies historian said Thursday.

Gymnastics looks to earn top ranking


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Freshman Nicole Harris practices her routine on the balance beam during practice last week at the John Spini Training Center. Harris finished with a 37.775 in the all-around competition at the Pac-10 championship on Saturday.
The ASU gymnastics team enters the Pac-10 championship this weekend as the highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 9 nationally.

The designation of being the best squad in the Pac-10, however, is something ASU knows it still has to earn during the meet Saturday in Corvallis, Ore.

"I'm not sure we're the favorites," ASU coach John Spini said. "Even though we're going in ranked one, you got Stanford and UCLA that have just always done well and have won several of them, and you got Oregon State who is hosting. So are we the favorite? On paper we are, but again it comes down to it, you have to get a little lucky on the judging side of it.

Back to School: The 27-year-old Undergrad

Sitting in the back of the class, the girls behind me are having a heated debate about the difference between "vodka-drunk" and "tequila-drunk." In front of me, a guy is discussing his sexual adventures with "what's her name." To both my right and left, there is some furious Blackberry texting going on.

Sitting in the back of a 200-plus student lecture class is the collegiate equivalent of the elementary school back-of-the-bus ride. It's where all the cool kids sit, and nothing good can come of it.

Judging Covers: The Sound of Art

If a paint brush were a musical instrument, what would your favorite painting sound like? This question may unfortunately never be answerable, but in the meantime, a new exhibit at the ASU Art Museum offers a chance to look at how the visual and aural arts may be related.

The exhibit, simply titled "Art Inspires Music," will feature paintings from the museum's permanent collection side-by-side with songs written by local musicians. They aren't just any songs, though -- each song was written over a period of two months by the musicians after choosing a painting to work with.
