300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
Gas prices increased again in Arizona this week, although the increase was half of the jump in the national average.
One of the many surprises in Wes Anderson's rich, layered and quirkily entertaining new film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is the emergence of a new comic actor, one with impeccable timing and just the right mix of gravitas and utter zaniness.
Arizona made national news again, but it was not necessarily in a good way. My sister back in Indiana called me last week. She was watching the news and wanted to know what on Earth was happening in Arizona. When SB 1062 passed both chambers of the legislature, a friend from high school who connects with me via Facebook wrote, “Chalk up another one for religion.”
In the U.S., more than two-thirds of the class of 2011 was not proficient in math. In Arizona, that number jumped to three out of four students.

Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn.

Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn. In high school sports, it often meant a freshman or sophomore watched while juniors and seniors took to the field, floor or court; kids who’d been in a given athletic program for a few years, and, thus, “earned” their playing time. That’s not often the case anymore for several reasons, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It could be a testament to how talented and deep Arizona’s high school basketball pool has filled out: Five out of more than a half-dozen kids from across the East Valley have not only earned roster spots and playing time on elite programs, but, in many cases, are essential pieces to potential championship puzzles during the 2013-2014 state tournaments.

But it takes a lot to crack the rotation as a freshman on some of the state’s best teams. Namely, it means not playing like a freshman.
