  Bishop Henry fails to do the right thing (again)PDF files may take a moment to load

During a debate last year on whether or not Catholicism is a source for good in the world, actor Stephen Fry, arguing for the negative, stated that the Catholic Church's approach to sex is unhealthy. He likened sex to food, arguing, "the only people who are obsessed with food are anorexics and the morbidly obese and that, in erotic terms, is the Catholic Church in a nutshell."

A warm, welcoming chimpanzee call is not a common sound in the urban jungle but on Oct. 24, that is exactly what was heard in the Jubilee Auditorium.

Hosted in part by the University of Calgary faculty of arts, Jane Goodall came to town on tour to commemorate the historical moment on July 14, 1960 when she first set foot in what is now Gombe National Park.

  New clubs space delayed by renovationsPDF files may take a moment to load

Renovations for new clubs space were slated to be finished this fall, but delays have pushed the opening to sometime before Christmas. The new space, located behind Jugo Juice, will allow more office space for clubs.

"The clubs space has been a long identified problem for students," said Students' Union vice-president operations and finance James Delaney. "Clubs are an important way to engage with the student body, so we try to do what we can for clubs."

This year marks the end of Stars' first decade together and while the Montreal-based indie group has just released its fifth full-length album, The Five Ghosts, and kicked off the North American leg of their fall tour, its members aren't only looking towards the future -- they're also honoring their past.

  Sometimes distance is all you needPDF files may take a moment to load

It's a bit ironic -- an Albertan who moved to Toronto, only to then sing intimately about the Wildrose province. But for Nils Edenloff, it's a reality. The singer, born and raised in northern Alberta, moved to Toronto for music. While there Edenloff met Paul Banwatt and Amy Cole, who became drummer and keyboardist, respectively, for the Rural Alberta Advantage.

Gauntlet: So Nils, your group's name is, of course, the Rural Alberta Advantage. Now as a person from rural Alberta what is this advantage of which you speak?

While we strive to provide a service of reporting accurate campus news, occasionally we at the Gauntlet will get some of our facts wrong.

The following is a list of mistakes we've made this year:

A Feb. 17 article in the food and beverage section of the Gauntlet inaccurately listed asbestos as an ingredient in fast food business Extreme Pita's falafel. The main ingredient is chickpea.

  Spun: Natacha AtlasPDF files may take a moment to load

Arabic and European vocal virtuoso Natacha Atlas's ninth recording is further proof that music is the universal language. Mounqaliba roughly translates from Arabic as "in a state of reversal" and has certain political connotations. Aside from several English language sound bite interludes from social theorist Peter Joseph, the entire album's lyrics (save one cover song) are sung in Arabic and their meaning is lost on the average western ear. That's quite alright though, as the music and Atlas's voice are stunning.

  Spun: The JezabelsPDF files may take a moment to load

Dark Storm is not for partying. It's for the mellow 23-minute drive home after some party in south Calgary when, if you could only piece the night together, you'd remember to be embarrassed. Hayley Mary's mournful vocals are easy enough on the hangover as she guides you through the night before.

The melancholy EP starts by delving into metaphors for drug use and sexual abuse and then transitions into themes of complicated love and finally, coping with heartbreak. It's the perfect allegory for a Saturday night.
