Texan bells are ringing: Houston Texans linebacker Jamie Sharper visits the Taco Bell at 3720 Old Spanish Trail on Dec. 9 to promote Bells for Kids, a holiday drive benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston. For every $1 donation, customers receive a festive paper bell that will be displayed in their local Taco Bell during the holidays. All the proceeds from the drive, which continues through Dec. 31, go to the Boys & Girls Clubs.

 
UH community gears up for Hawaii Bowl
While Houstonians are busy bundling up and unwrapping seasonal cheer, the Cougar football team will be experiencing a sunny, sandy Christmas in paradise. 


Warner elected Faculty Senate president
The Faculty Senate elected its next president and outlined its priorities for working with a new provost at its Wednesday meeting. 

UH's Ramos appears in new Alamo documentary

The Battle of the Alamo is a part of Texas history filled with bravery and loyalty, but also shrouded in myth. Although it's difficult to find a Texan who does not know a thing or two about the conflict, it is more difficult to find one who knows the facts. 


Share Cougar holiday cheer with e-cards

Cougars who want to save a tree and postage this holiday season may want to check out the University's electronic holiday cards, available free online. 
Arts & Entertainment stories
Third installment is the king of the ring
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King could easily have collapsed under the weight of unrealistic expectations. 
 
'Seven' disappoints loyal Iglesias fans, draws larger audience
Don't expect the rhythm of Enrique Iglesias' latest work to be quite as divine as his first English-language album, Enrique. As co-producer and writer of his follow-up, Seven, it's obvious Iglesias was eager to convert his Latin sound into a lame rock 'n' roll-flavored pop sound. 
 
Keaton and Nicholson shine through weak plot
What's wrong with love stories these days? Why do films insist on stinking up decent plots with the requisite bad laughs, annoying use of oldies and that predictable break-up only to make up? 

Rapper V-Zilla's 'Lockdown Sessions' breaks away from stereotypical Houston sound
Across the hip-hop world, Houston's reputation is tightly associated with one name: DJ Screw. His slowed-down music combined with the 'drrty' vocals of the South form the quintessential sound of H-town. But not all local rappers allow that stereotype to dictate their style, though. V-Zilla (aka VG Skillz) proves just that in his December release, The Lockdown Sessions

President wins more than meets the eye
Ladies and gentlemen, we got him. After months of fighting and the deaths of many innocent people, Saddam Hussein is finally in American custody. The former dictator has been captured, and the coffin is all but sealed for Democratic presidential hopefuls. His ruthless disregard for human life aside, Saddam's capture is an incredible victory for President Bush. Soldiers in Iraq have suddenly gotten something concrete and something good to send back home. Pictures of Saddam are a welcomed break in the stream of American casualties. 
 
Students shouldn't cheat
First: Don't do it. All the reasons you've ever been told not to cheat really are true. It deprives you of the very education you're in school to receive. It isn't much, if any, more difficult to do the work yourself.

Sports Stories
Briles says Cougars ready for bowl
While the Bowl Championship Series plays out like a game of chess between Deep Blue and Common Sense, Houston football head coach Art Briles goes about the business of preparing for the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Day. 
 
UH searching for some offense
The UH's men's basketball team has played solid defense, done well on the boards and has played tough down the stretch. 
 
Lady Cougars hope Mean Green is the Grinch
A 5-0 start to the season had the Lady Cougars flying high. Two consecutive losses have brought the team back to earth. Houston (5-2) will face North Texas (3-4) at 7 p.m. Friday in Denton with a chance to get back on the right track.
