March 23 started as an ordinary day for Dinos goaltender Nathan Deobald. He got up early to go to work and then headed off to attend class at the University of Calgary, where he is a drama student. As class started, he politely turned the ringer off his cell phone and tucked it away in his bag. While sitting in class, Deobald had no idea that his phone was being bombarded with texts and voice mails from his U of C coaches who were desperately trying to get a hold of him.

  Choose your own MonsterPDF files may take a moment to load

I was a bit daunted when our Entertainment Editor asked me to review Jeff Burk's newest book, Super Giant Monster Time. The name itself makes me want to read it, but I wasn't sure how to handle reviewing a choose-your-own-adventure book, especially one written by such an absurd and irreverent author as Burk. He's the guy whose previous epic, Shatnerquake, featured at least fifteen different versions of William Shatner doing battle with each other. When I spoke with him last year, he was very excited for Super Giant Monster Time.

Forty-eight per cent of the U of C's 2009 revenue came from the Alberta government, 11 per cent from the federal government and 15 per cent from tuition, according to the university's financial report.

The Alberta government takes a different approach to measuring market value.

The Vatican is in a tough spot. When news broke over a month ago that Irish Cardinal Sean Brady admitted to taking part in a secret tribunal to make rape victims take an oath of secrecy, the Vatican had enough to deal with. Then, things got worse. Reports arose detailing the cover-up of Rev. Peter Hullermann's abuse of children in Germany. This abuse came to the attention of church authorities in 1980 when Joseph Ratzinger, then archbishop of Munich and current pope, was in charge of Hullermann's area.
