  Kodachrome fades awayPDF files may take a moment to load

Those greens of summer / Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah / I got a Nikon camera / I love to take a photograph / So mama don't take my Kodachrome away."

When a type of film manages to not only be memorialized in song by Paul Simon, but also have a state park named after it, it's bound to have an important place in history.

  Older, but definitely not wiserPDF files may take a moment to load

Attention all reformed punk rockers, consider this an invitation to revisit your anti-establishment ideals. Pennywise is coming to town. But before you break out the bottle of JD to start your warmup, be forewarned -- this is not quite the Pennywise of yesteryear.

Zoli Teglas, formerly of Ignite, officially replaced Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg at the beginning of 2010. Lindberg had been with the band since their inception in California in 1988.

  Sometimes all it takes is a SketchPDF files may take a moment to load

People don't often realize the monumental amount of preparation that goes into making a feature-length film. Scouting locations, writing and editing scripts, storyboarding, casting, wardrobing -- the list goes on and on. That's why it's so impressive to see Science Bear -- a group of local comedians ­-- tackle the medium with a 75-minute comedic treatise called Sketch on the state of racial comedy. It's all the more impressive when you realize that they did it without a lot of the aforementioned prep.

Fred Squire, one third of Daniel, Fred and Julie, has no qualms sharing the story of the trios auspicious start.

"Dan and I were thinking of starting a church in Sackville, so he came out, but we recorded this album instead," he explains wryly. "We looked at the logistics of making a church and found that you have to believe in something."

  Hot PandaPDF files may take a moment to load

Upon listening to a band for the first time, there's often an overwhelming urge to categorize them -- to deconstruct their sound and translate it into terms that we are familiar with. This is especially true with Hot Panda. Though there is a core sound that is consistent and unmistakable, their eclectic album compositions draw from many different genres and styles, leaving the listener struggling to pin down what exactly Hot Panda is about.

  Native ambassador program reaches out to youthPDF files may take a moment to load

Whether it's due to a lack of financial, educational or even motivational backing, a post-secondary education can seem out of reach for many Aboriginal youth. The Native Ambassador Post-Secondary Initiative program, based out of the university's Native Centre, is working to change that. NAPI works through educational outreach and leadership training to help inspire youth to reach their academic ambitions, and has had a successful year so far.

  New rules to clubs applying for SU conference and events fundingPDF files may take a moment to load

For many students, traveling to conferences is the highlight of a university experience, though sometimes a very expensive highlight. The Students' Union has offered financial assistance to students traveling to academic and non-academic events for years now, but recently changed the funding structure to close a loop-hole.

Last year, each conference was capped at $1250 of subsidization and SU cheques were made out to clubs.

  The war on drugsPDF files may take a moment to load

It is no secret that America devotes an exorbitant amount of money on its war against drugs. With 2010 three-quarters over, $35 billion has been spent to stop the spread of marijuana, cocaine and other narcotics. Since Felipe Calderón became president of Mexico, a similar drug war has been raging there, but the situation is quite different.

  Bathrooms are too hard to findPDF files may take a moment to load

As a mature student I often find myself having to make frequent trips to the washroom, and even though I'm now comfortable with the layout of the school and the location of the facilities, I consistently struggled with my incontinence when I first came to campus.

Why are the washrooms hidden in some U of C buildings? Why are there no signs directing students the same way that class locations are advertised? Are toilets seen as an exercise in problem solving and bladder control by the U of C?

  Bill 44 is a hymn to absurdityPDF files may take a moment to load

Think of some human rights. Some of them involve freedom from certain things, like discrimination based on sex or religion. These are often referred to as negative rights because they involve inaction to be fulfilled. In contrast, positive rights are things like the right to a fair trial -- an action has to be performed by others for this right to be fulfilled. A provincial government bill enacted this week is introducing a new right.
