- Hulick, freshmen step up in first collegiate competition (By NOREEN GILLESPIE Sports Writer)
Freshman Danielle Hulick stood behind the blocks at Rolfs Aquatic Center on Friday night at her first collegiate meet, and was admittedly a little bit nervous. The only freshman on a relay comprised of star-studded returning swimmers, she knew she had some big swimming to do. Part of the lineup in the 500-yard crecendo relay that was assigned the task of breaking one of the only meet records not held by Notre Dame women at the Notre Dame Relays, Hulick knew there was a task at hand.

- Napster restores music's excitement (Scott Blaszak The Early Essays)
I wasn't around last spring for the music-swapping craze that clogged the University bandwidth, and, in the end, forced Notre Dame to ban Napster from network computers. I was abroad in London.

- Challenging creative campaign tactics (Mike Marchand Questionable Freedoms 2000)
I want to be fair from the outset and state clearly that Al Gore never claimed that he invented the Internet. What he did say was that he "took the initiative in creating the Internet." There are some Web sites which state that Al Gore cited himself as the net's sole author, but these are the same sorts of places which also, as Matt Loughran pointed out on Sept. 30, attribute many of Dan Quayle's greatest hits to Al Gore.
