Cola, does a woman's body bad?

Nutrition junior Nicole Whittington picks up a bottle of Diet Coke on Sunday from Fry’s Food and Drug Store on Mill and Southern avenues.
Whether it's the "joy" of Pepsi-Cola, the "classic" Coca-Cola, or even a generic brand, cola sodas are leaving a bad taste in the mouths of women who want healthy bones.

Cola causes lower bone-mineral density in women, but not men, according to a study published by Tufts University professor Katherine Tucker this month.

Tucker tested more than 1,400 women and 1,100 men. She found that women who drank 12 or more ounces - or one can - of cola daily had significantly lower bone-marrow density at the hip, regardless of age, menopause, calcium intake and vitamin D intake.

Diet cola and decaffeinated cola showed similar results, but other sodas without cola did not have a significant effect on bone density, the study reported.

21st-century dorms on drawing board

The future of residence halls looks promising for students like Aly Brinkley.

Walls that can change color like a mood ring would be a stark difference from the Manzanita walls the business freshman is used to.

Carpenter calls out receivers


Christopher Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
The ASU offensive line runs a drill before a game at Sun Devil Stadium earlier this season.
While sophomore quarterback Rudy Carpenter has been heavily criticized for his poor play this season, he said he has received little help from his wide receivers on improving the situation.

"That's been frustrating for me and the offense so far," Carpenter said. "In the USC game, Jamaal Lewis, Terry Richardson and Rudy Burgess didn't catch any passes. Those guys, as well as Zach Miller, are our best players on offense and we're not getting a whole lot out of them right now.

"I don't know whether I'm not getting them the ball that much or if it's because they're not on the field that much, but they just have to prepare in practice and do the little things right so that they can get their opportunity to play on Saturdays."

On the Cover: Generation M


Jeremiah Armenta / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
We watched the clock tick down to midnight on the eve of the new millennium. We were old enough to understand the significance of the Twin Towers falling, but we were clueless about the Berlin Wall. We're a new generation - the millennial generation - and now the rest of the country is watching us.

You are being watched.

Researchers know who you are. They've seen what sites you visit on the Internet and how frequently you visit them. They monitor your text messaging, blogging and podcasting. They're aware of your attitudes toward minorities, your feelings about politics and your constant need to multitask.

And what they don't know, they'll soon find out.

At least, that's what experts hope. Researchers both nationwide and at ASU are devoting large portions of their time to learning more about our generation - the millennial generation.

See a movie, ditch the cash

Frequent increases in ticket prices and concession goodies cause many students to smuggle their Junior Mints and generic-brand sodas into movie theaters. An overpriced ticket, small soda and a bag of buttery popcorn quickly adds up.

The establishment of two Web sites may have solved that problem, though.
