g1 Jet‘t Patterson

"(mm mm

It’s no secret that the
Bluegrass loves its UK bas-
ketball and football teams.

Nearly 70.000 fans pack
Commonwealth Stadium
for every football game, and
more than 20,000 attend
every basketball game in
Rupp Arena.

Getting student tickets
for football games doesn’t
require much time or ef-
fort. Student ticket win-
dows are located at three lo-
cations: Memorial Colise-
um, Commonwealth Stadi-
um and the Commons Com~
plex area.

Tickets are sold to stu—
dents with a valid UK stu-
dent identification card on
Monday and Tuesday from
9 am. to 4 pm. on weeks of
distribution (some are done
on a multi-game basis).

Students can purchase
up to five more student
tickets as long as they have
five more ID. cards.

Distribution for UK's
games is as followed: at
Louisville. Aug. 30; Indiana
and Ohio. Sept. 13; Alaba-
ma. Oct. 4: South Carolina,
Oct. 11; Georgia and Van--
derbilt, Oct. 25.

Attending a game in
Rupp Arena requires a lit-
tle more effort.

UK men‘s basketball
tickets are distributed in
five different lotteries
throughout the season on
specific Monday nights. In

Lost and found: often-sought,
hard-to-find buildings perplex


One of the many lost buildings on UK's campus is the Reynolds Building
where art students perfect their craft.

By Derek Poore
mt mrucxv KERNEL

You are a UK student.
You could be a first-year 7
roving about. searching for
food. shelter and class. Or
you may be a campus-hard-
ened senior. searching for
well, food. shelter and some-
where to go instead of class.

Regardless. there are
many places on campus that
you've probably only heard of
and are only vaguely famil-
iar images sketched in your
mind. They're lost when you
need them the most: looking
for your class with five min-
utes to spare.

“Where is the Reynolds
Building?" you ask a friend.
“And what about this Erik-

son Hall?” You can see the
sign for Frazee Hall in your
head. but you can't remem~
her where you ran across it

Roaming the backstreets
of UK‘s campus behind the
Taylor Education Building,
students may or may not get
to where they're going. Art
students looking for the
Reynolds Building must nav-
igate an old warehouse com-
plex in search of their class—

Whether you're a fresh
man or a career collegiate
party-animal. some building
on campus are simply “lost."
Areas such as the Reynolds
Building at the end of Scott
Street and South Broadway
are on the fringe of UK's 670


acre campus. Reynolds is ac-
tually the Reynolds Ware~
house. a complex of build-
ings UK uses for art classes
and facilities for UK Stores.
The buildings were once to-
bacco warehouses.

The Reynolds area has
been known for security con-
cerns and no air condition-
ing. Air conditioning was in-
stalled over the summer. Kel-
ley Bozeman of UK Public
Relations said.

Others. such as Erikson
Hall which houses a cam-
pus restaurant, Block and
Barrel and Frazee Hall.
are right under students’

Continue your trek
through campus. Looking
out from the front steps of
the Funkhouser Building on
central campus. turn to your

Erikson Hall is situated
to the left of Memorial Hall

son is home to the College of

Now you're back on Ad»
ministration Drive, near
Barker Hall & Buell Armory
Frazee Hall is between the
two. which is probably why
you can remember seeing the
sign. coming and going from
the Student Center, but could
never remember where it
was. The Counseling and
Testing Center and UK‘s In-
dependent Study Program is
in Frazee.

At the corner of
Maxwell and Rose Streets
stands another often over-
looked but frequently—sought
building. especially for infor-
mation technology students.

Completed in 2000. the
James F. Hardymon Building
contains the Laboratory for
Advanced Networking as
well as the offices of infor-
mation Technology.

UK's campus sprawl can
create a lot of confusion.

More features marketed
for mobile phones

By Johnat_han Takiff
irrircin moon rnraurit

With an estimated 150 million
of us already toting a mobile
phone. you might think the US.
market was pretty well saturated.

Yet mobile phone makers and
service providers aren‘t taking "al-
ready got one" for an answer.
They're furiously upgrading their
systems (again). cooking up spiffi-
er new models and software ser-
vices that will make your mobile
almost as versatile as your com-
puter for communication. infor-
mation access and entertainment.

Today. let's push some of hot
buttons intended to hook the hold-
outs and lure current customers
to fancier phones and services.

The most "outrageous fore-

said Nokia software evangelist
Chris Lovejoy. "evenly divided be-
tween entertainment and produc—
tivity applications."

Priming the pump for growth.
this year's most sophisticated
phones are capable of ringing
with the actual sounds (and im-
age) of your favorite music artists
captured in MP3 form. Acquiring
these clips will get easier. too

Lovejoy also sees big growth
in fun stuff: daily comic strip
downloads. customized travel in-
formation (including maps) and
software to dress up and stitch to-
gether images shot with your cam-
era phone.

"We've got more than a million
software licensees for our mobile
platforms. tinkering to come up
with the next killer app." he said.

Perhaps most likely to burst
out big this year is the Multimedia
Messaging Service, which invites
creative types to communicate a
custom mix of moving images.
text and audio via the mobile.

While an industrywide stan—
dard. MMS is having the same
startup problems that Short Mes-
saging Service had communicat-
ing among different mobile ser-
vice carriers. said Lovejoy.


Today's VGA-grade camera
phones capture OK images for
viewing on another phone or com-
puter screen.

But to make a hard copy, settle
for no less than the 1.3 megapixel
camera phones coming this fall
from the likes of Kyocera. LG
Electronics. Nokia and Samsung.
First out of the gate is the Au-
diovox PM-8920 for Sprint. $150 af~
ter rebates.

Electronics' nifty "video confer-
encing" mobile phone. which
shows both the other party (a slow
scan moving image) and your own
image in a picture-in-picture dis»


Definitely on the way from
LG. though. are camera phones
that record up to a full hour of
moving video (with sound) com—
pressed in the MPEG-4 format and
stored on a tiny SD memory card.

Just when you thought mobile
phones couldn't get any smaller
they're growing larger.

To ease inputting of short and
multimedia messaging. new smart
phones like the Sony Ericsson
P910 and Motorola A630 have
grown large enough to accommo

series smart phone boasts a 640-

cantly larger than the 176- by- 209-
pixel display found in today s typi-
cal flip phones.


Mobile phone carriers are in

mobiles can act like multimedia
