Big Boss Booms: Let The Rebelution Begin

no thumb

by Tony Peralez (UTSA)

On February 26th my favorite music venue, Stubb’s Bar-B-Q, entertained with a show that was not to be forgotten. So let us jump right in shall we?

Stubb’s has been a staple of music enjoyment since I was younger. Hosting small indoor sets and large world wide touring bands outdoors, Stubb’s is easily, in my opinion, the best live music venue in Texas. Hosting the likes of Incubus, Thrice, Motorhead, Ben Folds, Nora Jones, and The Used, Stubb’s set resume is and always has been quite impressive.

Not only is it a great venue but Stubb’s is also well recognized for their outstanding bar-b-q. Their repertoire produces such delights as pork ribs with meat that falls right off of the bone, brisket that melts in your mouth, and local beer that does the state of Texas proud. So you show up early, grab some insane ribs, an ice cold Shiner Bock, wash up, and head out to the back for a great show. Stubb’s also has an indoor stage where you can catch some great acoustic acts as well as some smaller full band performances while you pig out. Most of their larger more theatrical shows are held in their outdoor amphitheater.

Steelers Star In Hot Water Once Again

by: Hassan Barzani (UTSA)

For the second time in a year, Pittsburgh Steelers all star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being accused of sexual misconduct. Subsequently, this occurs after police were investigating him this past Saturday for an alleged assault at a nightclub in a college town located in Georgia. Police in Milledgeville, GA were examining the claim of a 20-year-old student, who told an officer that Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her early Friday.

The case comes as Roethlisberger faces a lawsuit filed last July by a woman who says he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel and casino, in which these allegation he strongly denies. Roethlisberger, who was not currently in custody, has not been criminally charged in either case and has claimed counter-damages in the lawsuit.

Big Boss Breaks: The Spring Break-Through Body Approach

no thumb

by: Tony Peralez (UTSA)

So another spring break has arrived. Half a semester down and we have a week of vacation right around the corner. While most of us are working hard through midterms, projects, and presentations, there are also those of us who have been working hard in the gym and in the kitchen. With this in mind I decided to throw together some better ways to work out and eat to  spread the good word to my peers. I’ll be separating the two articles starting with diet and following up with some recommendations for the gym to give you all a nice little edge to get your fit on.

I used to be a work out fiend, now I just trying to stay fit and healthy for myself and my future. That doesn’t mean I don’t go after the glamour muscles like we all do, but maybe just not as hard as I used to. Using this approach has gotten me in the best shape of my life and maybe it can help you all out a bit as well. If not, then at least it never hurts to know a little bit more of how to take care of yourself.

Here are a few guidelines and recommendations to live by for the spring break transition phase. Now this is what works for me and keep in mind that we are all different. These are just suggestions that have helped me as well as a few others. The following is a high fiber and protein diet that works well when paired with exercise 4-5 times a week.

The Memorable Moments From The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games

no thumb

by: Hassan Barzani (UTSA)

The 2010 Winter Olympics officially ended last Sunday night, capping a roller coaster 17 days of competition in Vancouver. The mix of positives and negatives suggests that history will regard the Vancouver Olympics as a flawed success. The United States won the most medals in Vancouver with 37, but Canada ended the Winter Games with the most gold medals.

The press has declared the U.S. the winner of the medal count, but the International Olympic Committee will rank Canada at number 1 by virtue of those 14 gold medals. By the United States winning 37 medals at these Olympics, this surpasses the 36 total medals that Germany won at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games for all-time.  For years, the media has used total medals to determine the winner of the medal count. It’s an imperfect system in which a country winning six bronze medals would be ranked ahead of a delegation bringing home five gold’s.

by: Hassan Barzani (UTSA)

LeBron James’s No. 23 jersey has trailed Kobe Bryant’s No. 24 in sales the past two seasons.  James recently filed paperwork with the NBA prior to the Wednesday deadline and, should he stay with the Cavaliers, he’ll wear his Olympic teamNo. 6 next season. With the decision to leave, he can wear whatever he wants. Between now and then, no one else will care much about how many jerseys he sells or about how far he surpasses Bryant on the NBA’s list in 2011.

All about Michael?

The Freshman 15

no thumb

by: Ann Redus (UTSA)

And I’m not talking about that freshman 15, I’m talking about the 15 things all college freshman need to know…

1. Girls, don’t dress skanky. No one will think you’re cute when you show up to campus with a mini skirt and heels on after you trekked through the parking lot and up countless flights of stairs. You will make yourself look stupid and everyone will know you’re a freshman. Also, don’t wear tiny, Spandex shorts to the gym or wear your hair down while you run a couple of miles. You look ridiculous. And while you think you’re being sexy, and that upperclassmen give you dirty looks because we’re, “jealous” – think again. We give you dirty looks because we can see your Britney and that’s disgusting.

2. Don’t cheat. As we all know, technology is enabling people to find things about us that we didn’t even know about ourselves. Professors have access to certain programs that allows them to take portions of a paper that you turned in and check to see if it’s been plagiarized. Take care of business so you don’t have to resort to cheating because you will get kicked out of college.

Music (and Gossip) for My Ears

by: Ann Redus (UTSA)

I, like many others, see music as the basis of my sanity. I have ridiculous amounts of albums on iTunes for every genre, every mood. However, it’s rare that I have a few albums that I keep on repeat (and have for months now). I have yet to get sick of them, and I’m sure my passengers appreciate it too, ha! So, I thought I’d share my opinion on some of the hottest albums out and some interesting news about the artists that I’m sure you didn’t already know.
