Allen Field House It's early October on the grounds of the University of Kansas where barren trees; swaths of dormant, beige grass; and the pale, limestone buildings have created a monochromatic tableau that looks like a picture in an old, yellowed newspaper. Amongst the landscape of what could look like cathedrals lies a building that brings many students to their feet in anticipation of what will happen. Indeed, arriving for a game at Allen Fieldhouse can feel like preparing to rummage through the dusty archives of college basketball. But after a 2005 renovation, there's nothing musty about the newly developed structure. And with one of the best teams in the NCAA holding court inside, Allen Fieldhouse is all about the traditions that built the schools storied program. In the stadium, which originally seated 17,000 when the facility opened in March 1955, was reduced to 15,200 when Ted Owens coached here (1964 to 1983). Since 1993, the facility has held 16,300. Here fans fill red-and-blue bleachers from the floor to window-lined ceiling, creating an ambiance that is so retro-perfect it feels staged. The place couldn't look or feel much more like the set of a gladiator battle. After inventing the game, James Naismith launched the program at KU, coaching the Jayhawks from 1898 to 1907, and his name is on the floor. Wilt Chamberlain played two seasons for the Jayhawks, averaging 29.9 points and 18.3 rebounds. His name tops a banner recognizing All-Americans and his No. 13 hangs from the rafters. Another banner recognizes the school's academic All-Americans, including Bud Stallworth, Darnell Valentine and Jacque Vaughn. Folks here are proud of the fact that legendary coaches Adolph Rupp and Dean Smith are both KU alums and protégés of the building's namesake. Allen Fieldhouse defies logic. It holds almost twice as many fans as Cameron Indoor Stadium, yet somehow feels just as intimate. And its five championship banners are six fewer than hang in Pauley Pavilion,
our department. I am very grateful for all of your support.
I am writing to you to share my idea and proposal for building a new athletic field house at Kishwaukee College. The current gym situation is very nice but does not meet the needs of our growing department. We are also very limited for space, and our locker rooms are falling apart. Building a field house would allow for Kishwaukee to improve on many areas include storage, facility, time management, and recruitment. It would also benefit the….

The House of Usher falls, causing a fall to the House of Usher
Edgar Allen Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" is a chilling story written in the first person perspective through the eyes of a possibly crazed narrator. Part of the story's horror comes from the fact that the reader can never be entirely sure as to what is true and what is fiction. In any case, a main theme of the story is twin imagery. Many uses of identical traits exist in the story, like the similarities between the narrator….

Woody Allen is a challenge for philosophy. Why? Laughter
is of course not one of the most fundamental but is never-
theless one of the most controversial and intriguing topics
in philosophy, in whose analysis various philosophical dis-
ciplines have to work together—philosophical anthropol-
ogy, philosophical sociology, and aesthetics proper. This
bestows on comedians a certain philosophical interest—the
more so since, “while comedy may be the most widely ap-
