Palestinian protesters, claiming that Sharon's visit was a "provocation," attempted to prevent him from entering the area. Israeli police were on hand to push back the protesters, firing tear gas into the crowd. Early reports indicate that both Palestinian protesters and Israeli policemen have been injured in the ensuing chaos. The location is known to Palestinians as Al Haram AI Sharif, and is consid ered one of Islam's most holy sites. Jews also consider the area, known to them as the Temple Mount, to be one of the most holy spots in the world. Peace talks between Israel and Palestine have stalled recently, mostly due to the fact that neither side is willing to give up claim to the area. The violence that erupted Thursday is a potentially fatal blow to the possibility of peace in the region. Palestinian Preventative Security Service chief Col. Jibril Rajoub warned Tuesday that Sharon's visit would trigger confrontations that would spill over into other areas of the Arab world. Early reports show that the disturbance has been limited to the area surrounding the Temple Mount, and no Arab states have staged protests. Rumors indicating that Palestinians and Israelis are nearing an agreement may have prompted the bold move by Sharon. The Lilkud is the opposing party in Israel, and has sharply criticized the peace process. Likud Party spokesman Ofir Akounis, in an interview with the Jerusalem Post, called the visit a political statement to show that under the Likud Tarty the Temple Mount would remain in the possession of Israel. Palestinians want the site, which contains two of Islam's most sacred shrines, to be placed under full Palestinian sovereignty. 3 ' l mmm i i Li lO'lfl I) "l f mmm .g, tmm m .v... M.iy.w.

BRANDON MORRIS THE COLLEGE TIMES Picture from CNN's live video camera near the Western Wall as MTV nabs ratings with Gore Q&A AL GORE APPEARS ON MTV'S CHOOSE OR LOOSE By SANDRA S0BIERAJ OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)-The introduction for Al Gore's MTV appearance made him older than he really is. But it also celebrated his motorcycle-riding youth when he "even smoked the herb." The baby boomer candidate told the twenty-somethings to call him Al. Occasionally taking a shot at being hip, the Democratic presidential nominee fielded dozens of sober questionson racism, gun control and educationand some offbeat ones, too, at the University of Michigan for the MTV cable channel's "Choose or Lose" program on Tuesday. He weighed in on the side of intellectual property rights in the record conglomerates' copyright-violation lawsuit against the music-sharing Web site Napster. "It's a great technology, but it can only be used over the long. term if they find a way to protect the rights of the artist. If you make something then people take it for nothing, well. ..intellectual property is still property," Gore said. He escaped the boxers-or-briefs query that etched MTV's mark on politics when President Clinton replied "usually briefs" at a 1994 youth forum. Instead, one student stumped Gore with, "Paper or plastic?""Oh, man. I've never figured that one out. Just lump it up in your arms and take it all like that," Gore said, adding with a sigh, "I usually get paper because I like the paper better." Gore's 90-minute questioning on MTV, best known for its music continued pg. 3 see "Gore" U he Brazilian Connection By STEVE SCHAACK OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Editor's note - This is the first of a six part series. Each Thursday we will feature one of the athletes from Brazil There has been a connection established here in the UVSC athletic program with the men's basketball team and women's volleyball team. In the last two years, coach Jeff Reinert (men's basketball coach) and Sam Atoa (womens's volleyball coach) have landed some top recruits from the country of Brazil. Atoa recruited Ale Domingos and Erica Aere last year, and this year he landed Fran Pozzi. Reinert brought in Victor Goncalves a year ago, and this year he added Brenno Blassioli. This connection turned out to be positive, as each of the five players have made impacts with their teams. "I think that it is a good connection," UVSC assistant basketball coach Quincy Lewis said on recruiting in Brazil. "I think it is a relatively untapped area that not a lot of people go to. The one thing that helps us is that we are a junior college, and we can bring those players in. Then we have people here like Victor and Brenno L ii.im i i i.. -.

By RUBEN DIAZ OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF It's the final countdown 500 days until the 2002 Winter Olympics, and what better way to start than with a party? Mitt Romney, President and CEO of SLOC, hoped that the community would come together to celebrate the 500-day countdown as they unveiled the theme for the 2002 Olympics, "Light The Fire Within," displayed on a 265-foot banner portraying Salt Lake figure skater Stephanie Rosenthal. The celebration was broadcasted throughout the United States and to Sydney on NBC prime-time coverage. Over 10,000 people from all over Utah came that night, but they were not alone in the celebration. People from all over the U.S. came to help celebrate. Angie and Duane Toller from Dallas, Texas, came for the occasion, "Our favorite part of the celebration is seeing how the Olympics are in Sydney and how awesome it is to see the spirit of Utah come out tonight." Games for the kids were provided, such as bungee ropes, simulated free-style skiing, and they ran through a Alpine Ski Run provided by the SLOC's Youth Sport. Live entertainment was provided by South Patrol which performed on the second floor balcony playing such hits as "Tike Me To The River," and many more. But what's a cele bration without food such as Navajo tacos, pizza, and crepes? Olympic hopefuls for the ski and snowboard teams were on hand, signing autographs for the kids and families. Utah's own Ricky Bower of Park City had this to say about the Olympics, "I hope to be a part of the Olympic snowboarding team 'cause it's such a big event and something I have always wanted to do." Alex Shaffer of Park City and the Olympic Ski Team hopeful stated, "The celebration here is really nice and seeing how many people want to volunteer.
