October 5 issue!

Based on the title of this post, I assume that you've figured out that our next issue is released on Friday!

Inside, you'll find the usual news, sports, and features.

Here on the blog, however, we may have some blog-exclusive stories. Pick up the issue and keep visiting us here to get the complete 411.

And now, for something completely different. Not written by us, source is listed at the bottom of the page.

Jones Soda's latest flavors: dirt, sweat

Ever wonder what the Seahawks' locker room tastes like after a big game?

Apparently, Jones Soda Co. thinks Seattle NFL fans want to know. The company started taking online pre-orders Thursday for a five-pack of sodas with flavors it says reflect the hard work of professional football players.

Clare Bowles, a spokeswoman for the Seattle-based company, said the four literally named flavors -- Dirt, Sports Cream, Perspiration and Natural Field Turf -- are "pretty lifelike."

"Perspiration Soda is kind of salty tasting," she said, with a slightly higher sodium content than the average soda, with a smooth, "stinky football sock" finish.

A sip of Sports Cream Soda conjures up the experience of rubbing ointment into an aching muscle, while Natural Field Turf Soda is like "playing tackle football, and you get tackled really hard, you're down on the ground and you get a little bit of the grass in your teeth," Bowles said.

The only sweet soda of the bunch, Sweet Victory, has a berry flavor.

Each bottle features the photo of a Seattle Seahawks player. Limited quantities of the five-pack will be sold in select stores starting Oct. 1.

In May, Jones Soda announced it won a five-year contract to sell nonalcoholic beverages at the Seahawks' home stadium, Qwest Field, beating out The Coca-Cola Co.

Alston Grand ReOpening

Alston had its grand reopening tonight to celebrate the updates to the campus center, including renovations and an updated menu in Mollie's, the new center for Student Leadership and Development, and the new fitness center on the third floor. The night also included the first of Dean Hudson's ipod parties.

Be sure to check out all the updates for yourself, especially the new menu at Mollie's; I had a turkey and cheddar panini for lunch and was pretty impressed.

The Profile Goes Online

This evening I attended futureTense, a panel on the future of media, at Wordsmiths books, where a group of bloggers and writers talked about things like the fierce debate between print and online journalism, the advantages of facebook and myspace, and the reliability of bloggers.

Inspired by the evening and the increasing world of media online, The Profile is starting this blog in conjunction with the launching of the first Profile website this month. We hope to provide you with more up-to-date news, fun reviews, and information on upcoming Agnes Scott events that we can't fit in to our issues.

Look for the next issue of The Profile on stands September 14 (including an article on Wordsmiths).
