    Arizona State University football player Edward "Chip" Sarafin has come out as gay, according to Compete Magazine. In the magazine's August issue, the offensive linebacker said he told his teammates last spring. "It was really personal to me, and it benefited my peace of mind greatly," he said. Serafin told Compete, he told his teammates mostly for himself and because he wanted them to hear it from him instead of the college rumor mill.

    The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just completed a series of landmark reports that chronicle an update to the current state of consensus science on climate change. Its conclusion: On our current path, climate change could pose an irreversible, existential risk to civilization as we know it, but we can still fix it if we decide to work together. But in addition to the call for cooperation, the reports also shared an alarming new trend: Climate change is already destabilizing nations and leading to wars. That finding was highlighted in last week's premiere of Showtime's climate change docu-drama...

    Arizona State University announced Thursday that it is severing ties with a fraternity after the chapter hosted a distasteful party in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, replete with racist stereotypes and offensive costumes. The school said in a statement that it has notified Tau Kappa Epsilon its recognition as a fraternity chapter at ASU has been permanently revoked. Revoking recognition means the 65-year-old local chapter is no longer affiliated with ASU, the group won't be listed on the university's website and it cannot recruit members or hold on-campus meetings. …

    Poor old Chris Columbus. Generations of schoolchildren were taught to praise his exploits, which – after all – included the discovery of America, according to The College Fix. But lately things have taken an ugly turn—and his reputation has suffered irreparable damage, thanks to a claque of revisionist historians who have slowly but surely knocked him off his pedestal. The latest blow to Columbus’s heroic status came from Arizona State University, Tempe, which decided to change Columbus Day to Indigenous People Day. The switch was apparently long overdue, since enlightened souls in the city of Berkeley had launched the first...

    Hannity Show ^ | 10/30/09 | Rep. Michele Bachmann
    On Friday night's Hannity show on Fox, Rep. Michele Bachmann said (I believe) that an Arizona State University study reveals that in the last 9 months, the federal gov't has confiscated 30% of the private wealth of the country. She mentioned, of course, that adding health care to this would add another 18%, meaning almost 1/2 the wealth in the US would belong to the gov't. Does anyone know how to find this study? I can't find it.

    It's not often during midday cable news broadcasting you get to see raw emotion from one or two of the hosts. However, when President Barack Obama gets snubbed, there are exceptions to the rule. On MSNBC on April 10, co-hosts Contessa Brewer and Carlos Watson put their disapproval on display for viewers to see while reporting a decision by Arizona State University not to award Obama an honorary degree for speaking at the school's commencement next month. "In other news, President Obama will be giving the commencement address at Arizona State University on May 13th. But the president will not...

    PHOENIX – Arizona voters have begun to make up their minds about who they want in the U.S. Senate. And it doesn't look good for Democratic challenger Jim Pederson. A poll released by Channel 8 and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University shows Republican incumbent Jon Kyl has held his lead over Pederson. At the same time the pool of undecided voters has shrunk. Kyl received 49 percent of 882 likely voters surveyed between September 21st to the 24th. Pederson received 38 percent and Libertarian Richard Mack got 2 percent. The poll has...

    Tensions rose in front of the Memorial Union on Tuesday over an affirmative action bake sale that sold cookies at prices determined by the buyer's race. ASU's College Republicans set up the bake sale to protest affirmative action. It sold cookies, Zingers and Twinkies to white males for $1, to white women for 75 cents, to Asians and Pacific Islanders for $1.25, to black and Hispanic males for 50 cents and to black and Hispanic women for 25 cents. Jared Sandella, president of the club, said he knew some people wouldn't agree with the club's position, but both white and...

    TEMPE, Ariz. — Nearly one year after the outpouring over Army Ranger Pat Tillman's death in Afghanistan galvanized the Arizona State athletic community, it is reeling after the death of another former Sun Devil football player. Tailback Loren Wade, a junior from Los Angeles, is in Madison Street Jail, where for the last four days he has been held without bail in connection with the shooting death of former player Brandon Falkner early Saturday outside a nightclub in Scottsdale, Ariz. Wade reportedly made threats against his girlfriend, former Arizona State soccer player Haley von Blommestein, and gymnast Trisha Dixon. Police...

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer was among about 50 former Arizona State teammates of Pat Tillman who gathered Saturday night to help the school retire the fallen soldier's No. 42 jersey in a halftime ceremony. Members of Tillman's family also were on hand for the second such tribute at Sun Devil Stadium, during Arizona State's home finale against Washington State. The NFL's Arizona Cardinals retired Tillman's jersey at their home opener on Sept. 19. "He would be the first one to appreciate us all having a beer on his behalf," Plummer said at a pregame gathering....

Lynne Stewart is a hero of the National Lawyers Guild and a sought-after campus lecturer. While out on bail under indictment for colluding with a terrorist leader, she has been a sought-after speaker for law school audiences who relish her attacks on Attorney General John Ashcroft as a modern-day fascist and on her country for its imperialist and racist policies. Stewart made national headlines in April 2002 when she...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman met with students and teachers Wednesday to see how to help Iraq's universities recover from war and economic sanctions under Saddam Hussein. Veneman visited the sprawling complex of the Baghdad School of Agriculture in the Abu Ghraib neighborhood, a short distance from the prison complex where Saddam's regime tortured political opponents. "Agriculture is very important to this country, as it is to our country, and we want to see it rebuilt," Veneman said after meeting the school's faculty. "The people of Iraq need to restore their way of life, and we are...

And before today is over, as the Wildcats move toward an accomplishment never before achieved in school history, that violet hue could radiate just a little bit more. "We have a chance to finish in the top five," K-State senior wide receiver Taco Wallace said. "That never has happened here, and we wouldn't mind being the first ones to do it." For everything he's done at K-State, for...
