Humor is Nir: Parents cut costs in tight times

Times are tough, I know. Having a frat boy in the White House and anthrax floating around all has surprisingly had an adverse effect on the stock market. With the cost of upscale dining services with congenial and efficient staff, tuition is not getting any cheaper. I know my parents are feeling the pinch of […]

Arts: Daring drama takes America

When “The Island” first debuted in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1973, its honest but harsh portrayal of life in a political prison led the apartheid South African government to attempt to confiscate the play. But no script existed, because the two actors (John Kani and Winston Ntshona) and the director (Athol Fugard) had memorized […]

Preview: Early challenges for man who must do it all

Colonials 34, Universal All-Stars 27. Chris Monroe receives the ball just inside the 3-point line. He waits. He dribbles. An All-Stars defender takes position in case Monroe breaks. He doesn’t. Instead, he passes to an open Greg Collucci who hits a three-pointer. Colonials by 10. Next offensive possession. Starting from just beyond the arc, Monroe […]

Preview: Sharpest shooter returns to offense

After reconstructive surgery sidelined her last season, Cathy Joens is back and adds a shooting dimension the Colonials offense lacked last season. Joens is widely regarded as a top shooter in the conference, but the talented two-guard from, Irvine, Ca., also plays tough defense. Poor outside shooting was the team’s Achilles heel last year, as […]

Adiss’ abstract is curious creation

In an obscure corner of the second floor of the Media and Public Affairs building lies the small and unusual art show “Ocean of Ink, River of Fire.” On display is modern Asian art, consisting of 11 scrolls and three mounted pieces of calligraphy and painting, and 19 oddly-shaped ceramics. “Oceans of Ink” refers to […]

Former NATO Commander urges reform

A former NATO supreme allied commander critiqued military communication methods at an Elliott School lecture Wednesday, highlighting problems that arise when branches of the United States armed forces do not cooperate.
