Students Search for Sixth Sense
UC Berkeley students have been spinning around in chairs in search of a "sixth sense" that may allow human beings to innately distinguish north from south, and east from west without the aid of a compass.

My Own Personal Berkeley
"If I's can change, and you's can change, then everybody can change."

Bears Come From Behind to Vanquish Vikes
At times it was in doubt, and it was never a thing of beauty, but the Cal men's basketball team can reassure itself that it isn't where it was four days ago.

Asian Sorority Aids Student in Awareness
Asians currently comprise the largest ethnic group at UC Berkeley. While some Asians choose to join Greek houses dominated by whites, there are several predominantly Asian Greek organizations on campus.

Former Fugitive Discusses Prisons
Echoing many signs that were in homes across the United States during her time as a fugitive in the 1970s, Angela Davis was welcomed to Berkeley with "Angela, sister, you are welcome in this house!"

Professor, Inmate Coauthor Book Examining Imprisonment
In her multi-colored woolen sweater, 80-year-old Peggy Webb looks just like a grandmother - which she is. But not every grandmother has the direct phone number to Gov. Gray Davis' office taped to a kitchen cabinet, or visits a three-time murderer whenever she can get a ride to Solano State Prison.

Seriously, Enough With the Ethics
As much as it pains me to admit, sometimes one has to be serious. But don't blame me for this rash of gravitas and consequence, blame the NCAA.

Hughes Rebounds from Tough Week
Cal center Solomon Hughes hasn't exactly gotten off to the greatest start this season. In last weekend's game against UC Irvine, the junior didn't make a single shot from the floor, committed three turnovers and scored a single point off a free throw.

Letters to Sports: How Low Can the Bears Go?
Coach Ben Braun needs to go. Last week was humiliating for the Cal men's basketball team. First, we got thrashed by 20 by St. Louis - not a major basketball power. The worst, however, was yet to come. On Saturday, we lost to (Chagrin ranked) No. 219 UC Irvine. To understand how low Irvine is ranked look at some of the colleges ranked higher. They include Belmont, Liberty, Central Connecticut, Hampton, Colgate and 213 other schools. Each year since we hired Braun we have sunk lower. It is time for a change.
