I had been dating a man casually for four months but hadn't heard from him in three weeks. He was nice and a perfect nonthreatening entry into the dating world, as I had been separated for 2 1/2 years and was just starting to think about dating. But I woke up a few days before New Year's Eve and decided this would be the last one I spent alone. On a whim, I signed up for Chemistry.com using a nickname, Milly, so no one would recognize me. I posted a brief profile and two pictures and hit "send.

After a day of wild speculation at San Diego State University, President Thomas Day implored students and faculty members Friday to form a unified campus response to radical budget cuts taking place next year. Appearing embattled and weary at an afternoon rally in a crowded student union auditorium, Day staved off queries about which departments and professors were on the chopping block, then listened to suggestions on lessening or avoiding wholesale departmental slashing.

A woman is more likely to hold a seat on a Fortune 500 company board (15%), serve as a member of the clergy (15%) or work as an aerospace engineer (10%) than she is to direct a Hollywood movie (7%). A year after Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win an Oscar for best director for "The Hurt Locker," a new study indicates that the share of top behind-the-scenes positions held by women in Hollywood remains stagnant at low levels. Women held 16% of key jobs such as director and producer on the top 250 films of 2010 (as measured by domestic box-office receipts)

Marisa Mullendore has quickly adjusted to the swing of things in her dormitory at San Diego State University. The 21-year-old San Diegan likes being able to put burritos into the refrigerator in her room, play pool with her roommate, take breakfast by herself at the SDSU West Commons, and rock the night away in dance marathons. Marisa also religiously totes her Star Trek book when she ventures around the residence hall.

Frederick Martin Davidson, shackled and downcast, pleaded not guilty Monday to three counts of murder in the fatal shootings Thursday of three engineering professors at San Diego State University. Deputy Dist. Atty. James Pippin announced that the district attorney's office will ask the jury to find that "special circumstances"--lying in wait and committing multiple murders--exist to merit the death penalty. Pippin said Davidson admitted to police that he shot and killed professors Chen Liang, D. Preston Lowery III and Constantinos Lyrintzis just as a session devoted to his rebuttal of their earlier criticisms of his master's thesis was beginning.

Musicians dream of being discovered, of a moment when a music industry power broker walks up after a show and says, "I love your stuff. How would you like to make an album?" For the San Diego State University Jazz Ensemble, that moment came last January at the National Assn. of Jazz Educators convention at the Town & Country Hotel in Mission Valley.

Children who are disciplined with a slap or a spanking are generally less competent--and less confident--than children who don't receive physical punishment in the home, according to a San Diego State University study released Monday. The study, conducted this spring and summer in several San Diego County elementary schools, examined the effect of physical punishment on a child's self-esteem. According to Dr. Anthony J.

One of the most provocative and least visible local architects is Eugene Ray, head of the environmental design program at San Diego State University for 20 years. Ray, a multidisciplinary thinker in the tradition of R. Buckminster Fuller, hasn't found widespread acceptance for his ideas, yet he remains committed to new materials, forms based on nature, a sensitivity to the environment and also to his strong belief that each project is a chance to invent something new.

The formula for writing American music, according to the late Virgil Thomson, is uncomplicated. All you have to do is be American, and anything you compose is ipso facto American music. By this simple criterion, Sunday evening's chamber concert "Music Down Under" at San Diego State University's Smith Recital Hall was quintessentially Australian. Everything except, of course, "Five Melodies for Piano" by Jack Body, who is from New Zealand.
