This month, our winner is Bonnie Chuong, for her photo “Teotihuacan.” We chose this photo because of how it superbly captures the immense grandure of the Teotihucan archaeological site. You can almost feel what it would be like to experience the vastness of this place.

Tom Flanagan, a political science professor at the University of Calgary and conservative activist, has been castigated this week following remarks made at the University of Lethbridge about child pornography. Flanagan’s word choice was poor, but commentators have blown this incident out of proportion without paying attention to context. Unfortunately, Flanagan has been so badly reprimanded over the verbal slip that the message he was attempting to communicate and its real problems have been ignored.

The cost of post-secondary education in Canada is constantly rising. Along with tuition and other fees, students must buy textbooks, which can cost hundreds of dollars each semester.

  The death of the press conferencePDF files may take a moment to load

On Feb. 20, Sony held a press conference. In it, they finally revealed their new game console, the Playstation 4, after months of speculation, rumors and reported leaks. Dozens of developers and producers were trotted on stage to expound upon the virtues of the new system, making grand, fantastical promises without really showing anything concrete. New games were also showcased, although they all fit inside fairly conventional generic moulds — there was a shooting game, a racing game, a couple of action games and a puzzle game.

With the title Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, this rhythm-platformer by Gaijin Games is thankfully not as complicated as its name makes it out to be. Rather, it is very simple, requiring only a handful of commands to navigate the game’s levels. This simplicity can be deceiving, however, for under it lies one of the most challenging and rewarding games I have ever played.
