Local companies play it safe after E. coli outbreak

As a deadly E. coli outbreak sweeps the nation, fresh spinach has largely disappeared from ASU and Tempe.

Agricultural inspectors began examining spinach fields Monday to determine the source of a strain of an E. coli linked to eating the leafy greens, said David Acheson from the Food and Drug Administration.

The outbreak has killed one person and sickened 114 others as of 1 p.m. Monday, said Acheson, chief medical officer for the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

The strain of E. coli in question can cause bloody diarrhea, kidney failure and death in affected patients, according to the FDA.

Though no cases have been confirmed in Arizona, Karen Levy, marketing director for campus dining, said Sodexho dictated Friday that serving fresh spinach be suspended.

"Our resident district manger contacted all the managers in the [dining] locations and we removed all the spinach product from our locations," Levy said.

Cronkite school ready for downtown move

The plans for the future home of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the Downtown campus may have hit a snag.

According to a story in Sunday's Arizona Republic, the Cronkite School's move downtown hit a major setback from lack of funding and time constraints.

Downtown students force out nearby residents

Residents of downtown neighborhoods, including Oakland, Roosevelt and Willo Historic Districts, are saying goodbye to their heavily sought-after property.

According to Downtown adjunct professor Luisa Stark, many of the original residents in neighboring areas of the Downtown campus are being forced to leave.

Freshman Doty leads ASU soccer

It's not often that a true freshman makes an immediate impact on a major sports program.

But in the first half of the ASU women's soccer season, freshman Brittney Doty has done it.

Sixth-year ASU coach Ray Leone had a premonition that the freshmen class would be an integral part of this year's squad, but there was no way for him to predict one of his freshmen would take the lead of the team so quickly.

After eight games, Doty heads the team in scoring with four goals - two of which were game-winners - and has become the central option for a Sun Devils team that has exceeded expectations.

Devils defense has improved thus far

The surprise of the ASU football team after three games has undoubtedly been the performance of defense.

The Sun Devil "D" has only given up 38 points combined in games against NAU, Nevada and Colorado, and has allowed just seven points in the second half all season.

On the cover: Buying beauty


Katie E. Lehman / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
From Ashlee Simpson's nose and Pamela Anderson's breasts to Demi Moore's, well, everything, it's apparent that cosmetic surgery has become a frequent occurrence among celebrities today.

But celebrities aren't the only ones going under the knife.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, patients between the ages of 19 and 34 made up about a quarter of the 11.5 million cosmetic procedures last year. All together, Americans spent $12.4 billion nipping and tucking.

Mass marketing

With such a large pool of young people, it's no wonder that surgeons like Dr. Summer Daiza of the Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale, located at 10900 N. Scottsdale Road, are advertising directly to ASU students.

Daiza ran an advertisement for 10 percent off breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, chemical peels, skin care and other cosmetic procedures in ASU's Camptoons promotion map.
