Today I told Kate to write her own Golden Spatula. I guess it goes to show the sorry state of the award when I couldn’t even get the award winner to stay in the damn office long enough to write her own award. So I will write the rest of it as if I were Kate. Let’s step into Kate’s mind for a second. Wooozooop. “Dawg I put the team on my back, write articles erryday, gotta do this shit for the Gauntlet.”

The Students’ Union next president better be ready to negotiate.

According to SU president Raphael Jacob and vice-president operations and finance Eric Termuende, the SU does not expect to sign a new lease agreement for MacHall before the current executives leave office in April. This means the winners of this year’s election will be tasked with signing a new agreement before the current one expires in December.

  United behind the Students' UnionPDF files may take a moment to load

I care about the Students’ Union and what they do for my university experience. Four years of working here at the newspaper has let me closely watch the SU and each team of executives.

I strongly believe that the SU does an effective job. Yes, I like criticizing them as much as possible to keep them accountable, and yes I love grilling potential candidates who think they have what it takes to be an executive, but overall, the SU runs a tight ship.

The University of Calgary might be getting a new tenant — one that is over 70 million years old.

Last October, U of C professor Darla Zelenitsky and her research assistant discovered the fossilized skull of a Pachyrhinosaurus inside the town limits of Drumheller. A relative of other frilled dinosaurs — like Triceratops and Centrosaurus — Pachyrhinosaurus is distinguished by a large, bumpy surface on its nose. This surface, known as a boss, was one of the only parts of the dinosaur that was exposed when the skull was found.
