Internet addiction as serious as gambling, psychiatrist says

WEB WORK: Business major Ayaka Fukushima uses a laptop to study in Hayden Library.

For some addicts, a casino can be the root of all evils. For others, a fix can come from visiting their favorite Web site, according to a study to be presented in November.

Wade sentenced to 20 years

Former ASU football player Loren Wade was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday for the 2005 killing of Brandon Falkner.

Wikipedia edits aren't so anonymous anymore
Thanks to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, every person can play the part of a scholar and edit articles that paint an unflattering light.

Ironing out the glitches

Opinions: Wiki, what?

Wikipedia, and open source media in general, is a double-edged sword. On one hand, the online encyclopedia is brilliantly up to date. Information on current events and new trends coalesces on the site within hours of their inception. On the other hand, since anyone can anonymously edit entries, they are often filled with misinformation, speculation and rumor.

A perfect example is the case of Chris Benoit, the professional wrestler who murdered his family this summer. Benoit's Wikipedia entry actually had news on the death of his wife 18 hours before the police knew she had been killed.

Opinions: Go away WNBA

BERKELEY: I am sick. More specifically, sick with Mercury fever!

This week, the Phoenix Mercury begins their playoff push as the top seed in the WNBA's Western Conference. Oh, the potential glory! How could anyone not love this time of year?

Now, this is the part of the column where I bust out the "We're #1!" foam finger, get giddy about their post play and staggering amount of offensive talent and urge you, my fellow students, to support the hometown ladies as they aim for the title.
But that's not going to happen.

"September" sucks

"September Dawn" is propaganda pure and simple. In fact, it features the greatest vilification of a religious group since "The Passion of the Christ."

The new border fence
Silvia is not a drug dealer. She's not a terrorist. She hasn't been involved in gangs or street fights or identity theft. Basically, Silvia is not a criminal well, not really.

Elitism Online
The creators of want to help those unfortunate few who have to "peruse numerous unattractive profiles" to find partners on conventional sites.
