Last Friday night, while most University of Calgary students were somewhere on 1st Street, boozily thrusting and contorting their bodies in failed attempts to procreate, the Dinos men's hockey team were busy scoring at will on the University of British Columbia Thunder-birds.

With the end of the CJSW funding drive in sight, station staff and volunteers have resorted to unorthodox tactics to ensure they meet their goal.

"As of noon on Wednesday the 24th, CJSW just got over the $80,000 mark, so we're on somewhat of a pace to meet last year's total of $150,000," said Station Manager Chad Saunders.

Osama bin Laden is winning the war.

Not a war with bombs and blood, but a war where silent fears seize the United States. People are more aware they're entering tall buildings; they suspect planes that are flying too low. The dark-skinned man in the parking lot must be a terrorist. There could be anthrax in that package.

We lived off rice and lentils, slept in a canvas tent under the cold October sky, trekked many miles and fought the harsh climate of the Alberta Rockies. The cameras were constantly on us as we struggled to achieve the ultimate goal. One million dollars? Not even close. The goal was to better understand the lifestyle of 14 million refugees worldwide.
