Is Buffalo at risk of a bioterrorist attack? Not likely, according to Dr. Richard Lee, UB professor of medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics.Lee hosted the first lecture in the university's "Perspectives on September 11th and Its Aftermath" series, entitled "Bioterrorism: What is Our Risk?" Wednesday afternoon in the Student Union Theater.
This is the first of a two-part series examining the life of a UB men's basketball player. Next Wednesday's issue will deal with the topics of 'Student-athlete or Athlete-student' and 'After the Glory.'Before getting into the bulk of this article, it's important to understand one thing.
Following a semester many have characterized as unproductive due to poor participation and weak leadership, members of the Student Association executive board and the SA Assembly are pointing fingers to where they believe the damage was done and looking the revive the flagging representative body.According to SA President Christian Oliver, the assembly's weakness has "been a plague in the last three or four years." Oliver cited the poor leadership of previous assembly speakers as one of the root causes of its deficiencies."You need someone to rally the troops and unfortunately, that doesn't fall on the executive board's hands," said Oliver.

Within 30 seconds of taking the stage, the first crowdsurfer spills over the front rails. Lajon Witherspoon, lead singer of the Atlanta band Sevendust, is howling the lyrics to their opening song, "Black.""They say the devil lives in my soul.
Although it's hard to believe that a member of Sevendust is an easy-going Southern boy offstage, that's the type of person bassist Vince Hornsby is.One and a half hours before the performance, Hornsby is relaxing on a couch, the official banquet table beside him filled with a healthy sampling of snacks and beverages."Its not very nutritional stuff up in here.
The lights of the stylish little bookstore flickered, then grew dim. The last of the audience shuffled into rows of mismatched chairs.
UB's School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences recently developed the nation's first master's degree program in pharmaceutics with a concentration in pharmacometrics, an emerging field that combines pharmacological studies with computational data analysis.Pharmacometrics is comprised of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and biostatistics, and studies the disposition of drugs in the body and the time-course of drug effects."These kind of data are essential for understanding the action of drugs," said William Jusko, professor of pharmaceutical sciences and founder of the program.
Another successful campus apartment opening, a football team on the upswing, increased graduate and master's enrollment: in many ways, the University at Buffalo's 2001 fall semester was a definitive step in approaching the reputation of the large research universities President William R.
Friday's combination of snow, ice, rain, sleet and wind left on-campus students confined to their dorms while off-campus residents, many of whom lost power and heat as a result of the weather, struggled to stay warm."I almost got knocked down," said Cristo Benedict, a junior communication and management information systems major.
A small fire was reported around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon at Young Chow, the Chinese restaurant located in the Commons.Dave, the Young Chow manager on duty at the time, who would not give his last name, said the fire began when a candle, lit because the restaurant was without power, fell off the service counter, igniting a piece of paper on the floor.
While power was restored to almost all of the 100,000 Western New York homes by 8 p.m. Saturday night, that is exactly the time when someone pulled the plug at Alumni Arena.
