"All people should oc eating
,omplex carbohydrates, plant chemi-
als, calcium or soy products, vegeta-
Kes, and meat or meat substitutes,"
Nakamoto said. "Many students forget
bout calcium or don't like :he meat
they serve in the dorms. These items
are essential"
Nakamoto pointed out that students
who drink beverages with too much caf-
'eine ae often victims of (dehydration,
which actually makes ther tired. Also,
;ving off campus or in residence halls
without complete meal plans leaves

some students fending for themselves
when it comes to meal times.
Nakamoto said she believes good
exercise -- anything from a fast walk
around campus to an afternoon spent
ice skating - in combination with a
healthy diet contributes to overall
physical and mental health.
Nakamoto tells students that an easy
way to know if the meals they are eat-
ing are well balanced is to look at a
food pyramid, such as one on the side
of a cereal box. In a well-balanced
diet, every food group in the pyramid
should be represented each day.
"The new diet is supposed to be low
in fat, but specifically low in saturated

fat. There are healthy fats, too," she said.
A student's first visit to the nutrition
clinic is by appointment only, lasts
approximately one hour, and, like most
UHS services, is free for enrolled stu-
dents, Nakamoto said.
Follow-up visits are also compli-

mentary because of the health services
fee included in every student's tuition
UHS also provides free pamphlets
relating to various aspects of nutrition
planning, from advice for new vegetari-
ans to how to eat a low-cholesterol diet.

is out there," said College Democrats

Although Winterfest is smaller than
Festifall because it is held indoors,
some students said yesterday's event is
more convenient. "People will stop by
out of curiosity" because students tend
to be less stressed-out during winter
term, said LSA senior Joanne Alnajjar,
who was recruiting students to join
Dance Marathon.
One of the complaints by Winterfest
participants was that the event was
heavily advertised in the Union but little
promotion was done on the rest of cam-
pus. Sara Wojdacki, an LSA junior
seeking students to join Habitat for
Humanity, said "a lot of signs" should
be posted around campus.
It becomes increasingly difficult for
students to find out about Winterfest
because of the lack of advertising and
the inclement weather, Wojdacki
added. Micah Peltz, an LSA senior
and a member of Hillel, said Winter-
fest "could have been better adver-
tised" because it is "not as convenient"
as Festifall.
"I would have attended if more
signs were up around campus. ... It
wasn't advertised at all," LSA sopho-
more Carrie Wozniak said.

SALT LAKE CITY - Sometimes the discovery of a new dinosaur attracts
attention, but the discovery .of new dinosaur named after a rock star is sure to be
Wednesday morning, Scott Sampson, a University of Utah professor of geol-
ogy and geophysics and curator of the paleontology collection at the Utah
Museum of Natural History, announced the discovery of the remains of
unique predatory dinosaur in Madagascar.
In an article in yesterday's issue of the journal, Nature, Sampson and his two
co-authors dubbed the new dinosaur Masiakasaurus knopfleri. "Literally trans-
lated this means the vicious lizard of Knopfler," Sampson said.
The music of Mark Knopfler and his band Dire Straits gave the researchers the
heavy dose of serendipity needed to find fossils, he said.
Living approximately 75 to 80 million years ago, the 1.6 to 2-meter long
dinosaur is mostly neck and tail. Sampson estimated that it weighed about as
much as a large dog. But the strangest thing about this little beast - its teeth and
jaws - earned it the name "vicious," Sampson said.
Sampson suggests that Masiakasaurus' front teeth may have been used to cap-
ture and manipulate prey before the back teeth sliced it into pieces.
Other carnivorous dinosaurs have teeth that are identical both in the front a*
back of the mouth.

Howdy DoodyW t -
We Got 'Em
HARTFORD, Conn. - A federal
judge has ruled that a Detroit museum
is the rightful owner of the original
Howdy Doody, the freckle-faced pup-
pet that enchanted American children
in the 1950s, after a two-year custody
battle with the family of the late pup-
U.S. District Judge Christopher
Droney ruled there was a clear contrac-
tual agreement between Rufus Rose,
the puppeteer who died in 1975, and
the NBC television network, promising
to give Howdy to the Detroit Institute
of Arts.
Droney's written decision was issued
on Tuesday, but it was not made public
until yesterday.
Rose's survivors claimed that the
puppeteer, who manipulated Howdy's
strings off camera, had only a
thought or intention at one point to
give the puppet to the museum, but
that he never made a "completed
gift;' and that there was not a suffi-
cient contract or agreement for him
Arnold doesn't die;
gets money instead
appeals court has upheld Arnold
Schwarzenegger's 1999 legal victory
over a German cardiologist who pub-
licly predicted that the actor would
soon die from a heart condition, his
publicist said yesterday.
The Berlin Regional Court ruled for
Schwarzenegger in November of 1999,
ordering Dr. Willi Heepe to pay the
"Terminator" star $10,300 in damages
and issue a public retraction.
Heepe, who never examined
Schwarzenegger, said during a 1998
radio interview that the Austrian-born
actor was not likely to live much longer
because of a heart condition.
The 53-year-old Schwarzeneg-
ger, one of Hollywood's best-
known action stars of the past
decade, donated his winnings to
Special Olympics Germany. Heepe
has since issued the retraction and
an apology.
A publicist for Schwarzenegger, a

to do so.
"The museum is obviously delighted
with the results, and felt very strongly
all along that Howdy belonged in their
collection," said Stuart Rosen, a lawyer
for the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA),
which has an extensive puppetry col-

VANCOUVER - A great-gran

day after a court ruled a one-year

Vancouver where environmentalists
have clashed with loggers over the cut-
