For the answers to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s puzzles, check out!






By Nancy Black and Stephanie Clements Today's birthday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two sides of your personality seem to war between themselves. As the year progresses, you use strength of will to bring the two closer together. Take advantage of your abundant good fortune to make the most of each lucky situation you encounter. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is a 5 -- You're not a Doctor Doolittle, Push-Me/PullYou kind of person. Say what you want clearly, and hold steady despite shaky ground. Taurus (April 20--May 20) -- Today is a 5 -- You'll be tossing ideas around before you hit upon something that will work. Logic wins out over enthusiasm in this case. Gemini (May 21--June 21) -- Today is a 5 -- A little thought in the beginning makes love flow freely all day. Keep the conversation rolling and save actions until after suppertime. Cancer (June 22--July 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Although there's plenty to do at home, you need to get out to discover your luck today. You may run around, but it's productive. Leo (July 23--Aug. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- If you plan a trip, take advantage of competitive pricing. There's no need to pay top dollar when hotels are competing for your business.

Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold boarders) contains every digit 1 to 9. For strategies on how to solve Sudoku, visit Level: 1


Level: 1

3 4


Virgo (Aug. 23--Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Today's mission requires balancing your own self-esteem against the excitement of your partner or associate. Go with them on an adventure.

3 4

Libra (Sept. 23--Oct. 22) -- Today is an 8 -- You go back and forth several times with your partner to decide what actions to take. Compromise by incorporating both effort and imagination. Scorpio (Oct. 23--Nov. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- Co-workers bounce around like children with a new toy. You may feel like you're doing all the work. You'll get credit when it matters. Sagittarius (Nov. 22--Dec. 21) -- Today is a 5 -- You have a perfect vision of how to deliver love to your favorite people. They reciprocate, and you're surprised at their methodology. Capricorn (Dec. 22--Jan. 19) -- Today is a 5 -- The world is calling you, and you want to be in the social flow. Surprise, surprise! Someone at home has other ideas. Negotiate for an acceptable compromise. Aquarius (Jan. 20--Feb. 18) -- Today is an 8 -- Work may take you away from home today. If you travel, confirm reservations along the way. But if not, you can still get a lot done. Pisces (Feb. 19--March 20) -- Today is a 6 -- An associate has worked hard to gather the essential resources. Now it's up to you to use them imaginatively to accomplish as much as possible.

Farewell DE, ye hardly knew me DIANA SOLIWON Daily Egyptian

A few weeks ago on a Thursday, I got into a car accident and aside from some brief neck pain, survived the experience without incident. I still wanted to visit my little sisters, who lived 5 hours away, but between the wreck and the fact I promised the photo desk I’d cover the weekend because the other shooters were out of town, making a decision was not easy. Do I go to Kansas City to see my family because after I move to the East Coast in 2 weeks, I’ll probably never make the drive again? Kansas City. The DE. My life. The DE. I left. I just did that. I did not tell anyone until I came back and I did not say I was sorry. And it was OK. No one needed a photo, or help with a contact, or keys to unlock the newsroom, or to tell me they quit, but good luck finding someone to take over their budget. It made me realize that having held almost ev-

ery job in the newsroom, I truly care about this paper. But I had to let it go. Someone else was in charge, someone else was taking care of it, and someone else would be here after them. It’s a proven fact of the world that a lot of work goes into producing something in print. But something tells me the DE doesn’t care about that. This paper was here long before me and will be here long after (ish). It demands to be placed on a newsstand, day after day, regardless of what that takes. And every day it’s supposed to be, it is. So if I could interview a physical entity of the DE, it would probably go something like this: Did you know I like walks? Sunlight? A fresh tomato with my eggs on Sundays-are-fun days and breakfastfor-dinner days when I do not have to work from noon to midnight? Did you know that someone or something has been transferring phone calls to ext. 253 for the last five years,

and that it is actually busy signal and not a call? That carpet from the 80s is actually not a nice thing to do to a windowless room with lots of clunky, old desks that will never be moved and therefore prevent the funkfest of a floor from ever being properly cleaned — ever? That I actually rented an apartment and never signed a lease to live in the newsroom? That designers always have the food? That other than my lovely partner, sometimes the press guys were the most eye candy I’d see for five nights straight? (Except the bald one.) Did you know that only a moment stopped me from staying in Norway to teach snowboarding — SNOWBOARDING! — instead of offering my soul up to you? But who am I kidding. I took the DE like the muscle relaxers for my whiplash ... with pleasure and a slight sense of delirium. The truth is that I am now embarking on an amazing adventure. It turns out

when you give yourself to something, it pays you back with an internship in Washington D.C. Like, a paid one. Hopefully, the DE will continue to provide unsuspecting journalism students with the greatest lesson in humility and reward their SIUC experience has to offer. I promise, it will teach you things. Like everyone deserves context. If you’re not stressed, you’re not working hard enough. Estrogen is probably the worst slug for a jump on a story about women in the minority ever. A community’s memory lasts way longer than most of us have been alive. That can be a good and a bad thing. And if you demand it, Eric will give you 75 cents. Unbeknownst to the ink on this page, I have learned these things. It’s time for me to pack up my little basket of lilies and life lessons and find another desk in this unforgiving, fantastic line of work. I cannot wait. Farewell DE, ye hardly knew me — but took care of me just the same. Seeeerrrviiiice!
