ASU officers to carry assault-style weapons

FIREPOWER: Sgt. Bill Orr of the ASU Police Department holds up a Bushmaster assault-style rifle, one of four, that will be carried by the ASU Police Department.

For the first time in ASU history, campus police officers will boost their arsenal with high-powered, assault-style rifles.

Pivotal battle remains between bracket-buster opponents

Bettina Hansen / THE STATE PRESS

Just two hurdles remain on the ASU basketball team's quest to make it to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.

Five runs in the first propel ASU

The visiting New Mexico Lobo baseball team did all it could one night after losing by 17 runs: It showed up. But its attempt at upset proved feeble yet again.

Devil Dish
March 4, 2008 — a day that shall live in infamy. OK, maybe a little hyperbolic, it's not like any U.S. harbors were bombed, but Brett Favre's retirement was like an atomic bomb to the harbor of my soul.

ASU hitting its stride in time for conference tournament
Members of the ASU women's basketball team have been talking about having a "March mentality" for the past few weeks.

Opinions: Up in arms

Today, we're going to talk about guns on campus. Again.

But instead of griping about good old Senate Bill 1214 and the sheer lunacy of its no-holds-barred concealed-carry ways, we're going to look at a new campus security measure that will actually make a difference in, you know, a good way. Kind of a cool concept, huh?

Opinions: A diagnosis of Campus Health

MAPES: Itchy, watery eyes? Sore throat? Gooey boogers running down your face? These symptoms mean one of two things: Either you've contracted a combo of pinkeye, gonorrhea, and Ebola virus, or, far worse, you are one of millions who suffer from seasonal allergies.

There was a time when Arizona was considered a haven for allergy sufferers because of its complete lack of vegetation, and thus absence of irritants like pollen.

I challenge you to a duel

The bloodsport of bug fighting has been popular in Asian culture for almost 2,000 years. Cricket fighting has roots in China, beetle fighting in Thailand, and spider fighting in the Philippines.

Bombers, berets and porkpies, oh my!

A snazzy hat on a man can bring spice to an otherwise dull outfit, throw personality in every direction and make even the worst of scumbags just look hip.

Unsung wonders
Like many others, journalism senior Danielle Ciraola has no idea what a melodica is.

Today, you become a man
Men who have style are oh so sexy. A well-dressed man can be a weakness for many women — think of fashion designer Tom Ford, and actors George Clooney and Jude Law.

Stand out Solo
To survive among today's coffeehouse chains, cafes often have to pursue a smaller, unique feel. Nothing could be more anti-Starbucks and anti-big business than the drinking-right-at-home feel of Solo Café.
