Dinos swimming head coach Mike Blondal is disappointed with the results over the weekend, but he's not despairing.

  Spun: TetrixPDF files may take a moment to load

Local art-electronica artists Tetrix have finally hit double digits with Tetrix 10, their 10th release since 2002’s Tetrix 1. It is stunning to look back and see that these musical adventurers have released at least one album annually. Like the lyrics on opening track “The First Green Leaf” every new Tetrix release is “Ringing in the new year / It’s heard / It’s told / Let it bring you!”

Appropriately titled “WTF?,” the lead song on OK Go’s much anticipated third album accurately labels the range of perplexities that make up Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. Unlike their first two albums, the Chicago eccentrics have abandoned their audibly artistic brand of music for a more visual approach.

  Arch Enemy isn't easily classifiedPDF files may take a moment to load

With so many different types, subgenres, speeds and religious views, metal is a tricky genre to categorize. Sometimes even artists themselves aren't sure exactly which box they fit into. Sweden's Arch Enemy is the perfect showcase of the genre's eclecticism, featuring vocalist Angela Gossow-- one of the only female metal vocalists who can actually growl-- and guitarist Michael Amott, who formed Arch Enemy out of the ashes of gore metal group Carcass. The band is a deadly mix.

Food is a fun and fulfilling addition to your sex life, and won't leave you hankering for a snack after you get a little something-something. Introducing food in the bedroom allows you to fulfill your base needs for food and sexuality. Who can argue with that? That said, some foods should be introduced to your bedroom, while others should not.

On January 19, a historic change occurred in the United States senate when the special election held to fill the late Edward M. Kennedy's seat was won by Republican Scott Brown. Kennedy had held the seat for 46 years and, even with his passing, the idea of the Democrats losing it was unimaginable. However, as Election Day drew closer, and the lead held by the Democratic candidate, State Attorney General Martha Coakley, steadily dwindled, it became apparent that the Ted Kennedy dynasty was not enough to ensure a Democratic victory.

  Stop giving tax breaks to religious groupsPDF files may take a moment to load

There is a difference between freedom of speech and freedom from taxation. This difference makes it possible to retain the former without being able to claim the latter, but not everyone sees it this way. In October the King's Glory Fellowship Association, a protestant church, was alerted that they would be losing their charitable status from the Canada Revenue Agency. The CRA has guidelines about the amount of partisan political activity a charitable group can take part in and it found King's Glory in violation of them.
