After the Alpha Tau Omega house was damaged last summer from a pipe leak, rendering it temporarily uninhabitable, the fraternity lost its charter from the national fraternity, according to Cambridge License Commission minutes. Yesterday morning, the CLC held a decision meeting where — if ATO regained its charter — the committee could have decided to grant the fraternity a housing license.
You may think, after the Huntington’s recent “Two Men of Florence,” that you have seen enough of Galileo Galilei for one season. Please don’t let that keep you away from David Wheeler’s rich and vibrant production of the Bertolt Brecht classic “The Life of Galileo,” at the Central Square Theater.

Berenson, a former MIT undergraduate, gave birth to a baby boy named Salvador Anespori Apari Berenson Wednesday while serving a 20-year sentence in Peru for collaborating with the leftist rebels of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, the Associated Press said.

<i>The Tech</i> sat down with Professor Robert J. Silbey last week to talk about the Campus Police review panel. Silbey is chairing the panel (see membership below) formed in the aftermath of the arrest of then-MIT Police Officer Joseph D’Amelio on drug trafficking charges.
When Major League Baseball officials examined the results of urine tests from the slugger Manny Ramirez earlier this season, they became suspicious. While the tests did not show clear evidence of a performance-enhancing drug, there were traces of banned substances present, enough to initiate a process that has now left one of the best hitters in baseball history with a 50-game suspension.
She was a disciplined, fearless young woman of great promise, a Wesleyan University junior with a passion for women’s health issues. He was apparently disturbed, a man with shaky relationships and a malevolence toward Jews who threatened them and others on the campus in Middletown, Conn.
After subjecting the nation’s biggest banks to the most public scrutiny in decades, federal regulators ordered 10 of them on Thursday to raise a total of $75 billion in extra capital and gave the rest a clean bill of health.
Even after receiving $15.4 billion in federal loans, General Motors is once again on the brink of financial collapse.
This weekend’s weather will feature a sampling of typical spring conditions for New England. Sunny skies will be prevalent at times, but will be interspersed with clouds and rain. The average high temperature for this time of the year in Boston is around 65 degrees, and temperatures will range near this figure for most of the weekend. The Boston area will get a taste of partly sunny spring days today and tomorrow, but a thunderstorm or two are likely to make their way across the region this afternoon. Finally, a cold front will reach the area toward the end of the weekend, bringing with cooler temperatures, cloudy skies, and a even a few showers. Hence, our campus will experience warm, sunny weather, thunder and lightning, and a few spring showers over the course of a single weekend.
Contrary to all expectations, the main speaker at this year’s annual Palestine Awareness Week (PAW) is… Noam Chomsky. The purpose of this opinion, however, is not to criticize Chomsky’s rhetorical methods (Ophir and Faketerman, Vol. 128, Issue 65) or to contextualize the misleading remarks he makes (Maurer, Vol. 128, Issue 64). Rather, my grievance is with the organizers who continue to give Chomsky a forum to repeat the same message — time and time and time yet again.

Situated at the heart of South Asia, amidst major tall mountains of the World, Nepal is a beautiful land. In the 70s, Nepal was counted as one of the world’s top tourist destinations. As a toddler I still remember saying in my classroom — “Guests are gods.” We used to satisfy the needs of our guests before looking on to ours. Our values taught us to love every human being’s and help the helpless. Our glorious history taught us to fight against injustice, yet remain peaceful. Such uniquely rich culture; rife with empathy, respect, dignity and sacrifice; has always propelled me to remain proud for my nation.
Girl Talk had it all wrong. Why mash up the familiar when there’s a whole internet of tubes to sample. Every beat, every riff, every note. Somewhere on the tubes, it’s there, waiting. Want a reggae guitar riff in A-minor? Want siren sounds, bass grooves, or perhaps some suburban freestyling? Just search.
T<i>he Spirit</i> is a moving comic book — every shot is a tiny masterpiece, full of details and subtleties that would make any graphic novel a drool-worthy piece of art. And that is <i>The Spirit</i>’s greatest flaw: Frank Miller put so much life onto the screen that it would take multiple viewings — of the movie, the commentary, and the special features — to digest it all. Not only is the average audience member unaccustomed to applying so much scrutiny to a film, but film as a medium cannot handle such overflow of detail — the picture you see is constantly moving, and you just don’t have the time to pore over every corner of every picture.
Looking for a feel-good, happy-go-lucky movie? You won’t find it in <i>Tokyo Sonata</i>, director Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s latest film. But for what it lacks in fairy tale happy-ever-afters, <i>Sonata</i> more than makes up for it in its dark, subtle humor and highly perceptive look at the underground culture of unemployment in Japan and its impact on one seemingly typical family.
