Rose review: American Gangster
There are too many movies being filmed in New York. Every single movie seems like it's a postcard to go to NYC. Don't get me wrong, New York is a beautiful place that looks like the movie Blade Runner, but what happened to the old New York? The real New York filled with all of the filth that made the city dangerous. The ugly, decrepit, not-safe-to-walk-around-past-dusk New York?

Opinions: Not gonna happen…

The student governments of ASU, UA and NAU are working together to propose a stop to tuition increases at the state universities in 2008. Unfortunately, they couldn't have picked a worse year to do so. Due to the economic slowdown in Arizona's housing market, state tax revenue this year was $225 million less than expected. That, combined with other contingencies, such as a drastic increase in prisoners in Arizona jails, has created the first state budget shortfall since 2004 — and the worst since 2002.

Opinions: The corn effect: everything is connected

POHARE: People face a sticker shock when they see the price of milk ($3.50 per gallon, up 50 percent) or the price of eggs or chicken (up 40 percent) compared to a few months ago.

The same is true for several other staples in grocery stores. Students and many retirees, who fall into the lowest economic brackets, are the first to suffer from super inflation. Most people don't give a thought as to why they have to pay the sky-high prices. Some are content with blaming the government for not controlling these prices. Let me help you to understand the forces behind all this.
