A study aid: Senior English major Kathryn McKelvy and senior history major Jennifer Helm prepare for finals Wednesday in front of a beer-bottle sculpture recently built in the Fine Arts Building courtyard.

 
UH wins final battle in discrimination lawsuit
The University will not have to go back to court for another battle over a discrimination lawsuit that, despite a jury's decision for UH, has been causing contention for the last six weeks.
 

Faculty Senate elects news president
After a close run against Technology Sen. Katy Greenwood, Natural Sciences and Mathematics Sen. Giles Auchmuty was elected the next president of the Faculty Senate during its meeting Wednesday. 



'Weight' excels despite heavy story
With The Weight of Water, Kathryn Bigelow excels in comparing a sexually repressed woman's rage to that of a jailed homophobe who's just been force-fed a bottle of Viagra. The problem for Bigelow isn't the complex plot, but it's the thought of the film being too ambitious by Hollywood's standards.
 

J. Lo's 'Maid' looks to clean up a box office
In Maid in Manhattan, one of the entertainment industry's most appealing names, Jennifer Lopez, is paired with one of the screen's finest actors, Ralph Fiennes. Wang, who directed The Joy Luck Club, and John Hughes, who penned the 1980s hits The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, also lend their talents to the film.
 

Lineup survives while Guns 'N' Roses loads up
Barring a last-minute cancellation, Guns 'N' Roses is set to grace the Compaq Center's stage Tuesday, and local lineups haven't seemed too appealing. But the music scene won't give up. This weekend's lineup offers concert-goers everything from the renowned Battle of the Bands to even Erykah Badu's little sister, Nayrok.
 

Breaking Benjamin knocks down local rock competition
With a debut album hitting the stores, and radio play many bands could only dream of, Breaking Benjamin is breaking into the scene with a chugging ferocity characteristic of its energy-filled music.

Simonson: Corporate-owned media in no way 
promotes leftist coverage
OK, listen up, everybody. Ready? Good, because I'm only going to say this once: I am damn sick and tired of hearing about the "liberal media." Got it?
 

Caster: Give Sen. Lott a break
U.S. Senator and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss) is in big trouble. Last week, at Sen. Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party, it seems he made a comment that has angered a few Democrats -- well, OK, all Democrats, and a few Republicans. The comment was made regarding Thurmond's presidential run in 1948. Lott said that if Thurmond had beaten Harry S. Truman that year, the country would have been a lot better off.
 

Staff Editorial: Back in the good ol' days
 

Briles goes back to high school, hires new coaches
Just seven days into his new job, UH head coach Art Briles has already started to build his staff -- and he's looking to familiar faces to do it. On Sunday, he hired former UH wideout Jason Phillips as the wide receivers coach. This week, he added high school coach Randy Clements and may be close to hiring Phillip Montgomery.
 

Bowls show little respect for tradition
Every year about this time of the season this writer is disgusted by what he sees. There still isn't a Division I-A football playoff system (Div. I-A football is the only NCAA sport that doesn't have a playoff system).
