New USG president, VP sworn in


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Liz Simonhoff and Ross Meyer were sworn in yesterday as the vice president and president of Undergraduate Student Government.
Despite the controversy that followed the elections, new student government officers were sworn in during an uneventful ceremony Tuesday.

Economics junior Ross Meyer is replacing Corinne Widmer as Undergraduate Student Government president, while finance and political science sophomore Liz Simonhoff will retain her role as vice president. Just after they were sworn in, Simonhoff clapped and said to Meyer, "Yay! We did it!"

USG senate may be shrinking

Beginning in the 2007-08 school year, the Undergraduate Student Government senate could shrink to have one senator per college.

At a meeting Tuesday, the Senate discussed the new constitution that was drafted April 1 and 2.

Stem cell research moving forward, panelists say

Government restrictions on funding stem cell research hasn't held back science yet, but could in the future, a panelist said at a discussion of legal and ethical issues surrounding such research Tuesday.

Two panelists, Dr. Nabil Dib, director of the cardiovascular research at Arizona Heart Institute, and Dr. Michael Caplan, an assistant professor in the Department of Bioengineering, spoke before an audience of 30 people at the event, which was hosted by the Biomedical Engineering Society.

Kelly coming full circle


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Senior Ashley Kelly practices at the John Spini Women's Gymnastics Training Center.

Aside from executing tumbling passes, doing flips on a beam and breaking records for the ASU gymnastics team, Ashley Kelly's hobby is making scrapbooks. So far, Kelly has created two 50-page tomes, one each for her freshman and sophomore years, each chronicling the current senior's accomplishments competing for the Sun Devils.

Kelly has been sluggish in completing the scrapbook for her junior year, however. That would represent a year in which ASU failed to reach nationals, and Kelly herself struggled with a severe ankle injury. "I started getting depressed when I would take the newspaper articles and it was like 'lost another meet, lost another meet,'" Kelly said. Judging by the way things have gone for her and the Sun Devils in 2006, however, Kelly should be finishing up the fourth installment of the series in no time.

Softball: Devils rolling with young guns

On most college teams, the more experienced players soak up the spotlight and playing time while the underclassmen learn and develop. But for ASU softball, the future is also the present.

Got Game?


On the cover
"I'm a terrorist," casually declares global studies freshman Matt Morgan, staring intently into the glare of his computer screen. "It's my job to plant the bomb without any counter-terrorists getting in the way."

Morgan hardly looks the part. Dressed in shorts, a baggy T-shirt, with blond curls tucked neatly underneath a baseball cap, Morgan looks a lot like your average college student.

But then he is a college kid; it's just that he's also a terrorist in his spare time -- his video gaming time. Tonight, at Warzone Gaming on McClintock and Elliot in Tempe, Morgan's hands -- one massaging his mouse, the other twitching above his keyboard -- are about to start moving wildly, causing a havoc of bullets and explosions on the screen.

Combat Zone: Playing Soldier

The sun is barely peeking out over the Eastern horizon, casting gray light over the desert landscape. Twelve men and women dressed in camouflage crouch behind sparse bushes. Their boots dig into the dirt as they make their way uphill. They are searching for an enemy that they've been ordered to find and destroy.
