"Even better than the real thing"

Travis Howell/The Daily Cougar

Song Ping, an MBA accounting major, sports her free pair of (fake) Oakley sunglasses after applying for a credit card at the University Center Wednesday. The sign on the left claims one can earn a free pair of Oakley sunglasses (which cost more than $100, on average) by simply applying for a credit card.


In News Today . . .

The University has opened a formal investigation of alleged incidents of hazing, alcohol and theft within the UH chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

In Opinion Today . . .

In an attempt to solve a difficult problem, bureaucracies will often come up with "buzzwords," simple sound bites that they pretend are the needed solution. These words are then often used like magical incantations to ward off accountability and criticism. Among the most pernicious of buzzwords currently in favor is "zero tolerance."

In Entertainment Today . . .

In June 1966, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter was forced to take a different path from his intended one. A strong contender for the middleweight boxing title, his dreams were destroyed when he, an African-American, was wrongfully accused by racist cops of a murder in which three people were gunned down at Lafayette Bar and Grill in New Jersey.

In Sports Today . . .

Lately, it's been tough watching the UH men's basketball team. The team plays so hard, but it just can't pull off the win.
